News Flash: Intrepid Traveler Returns for the Festivities

le'la Sweety outfit 12-14-2022 - 002_001

I am mostly an armchair traveler. However I’ve been mostly absent from the grid for the past several weeks because I took a long overdue vacation with friends in California’s Central Valley. We traveled just about every day. If you ever wondered where a great deal of our produce and nuts are grown you can find it in the fertile soil of the valley.

I felt like an intrepid explorer while exploring the Lost Coast. It has been on my bucket list for years now. There exists only  one road with many, many potholes and bumps that provides you with stunning vistas of the coast line with its’ offshore rocks and huge breaking waves. When the Pacific Coast Highway was being built the King’s Mountain Range could not be tamed forcing the highway inland. hence the moniker “The Lost Coast”.

Sparkle Brightly

Don’t know about you but I am loving all the great gifts around the grid I picked up at shopping events, advent calendars, and hunts. Today I’m sparkling like a fine champagne in my festive Sweety dress from Le’ La. It is tastefully decorated with several Christmas textures. A Santa Hat is included. You can pick it up for $1L at the store for The Fashion Loft Treats and Sweets 2022 Holiday Event. It’s a shopping event combined with gifts. Pick up the event HUD at TFL Headquarters.

Sizes

  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy, Perky, & Perky Petite
  • Kups, Kupra B & O
  • SLink Hourglass
  • Reborn

EEKKK Christmas Hair

This fab hairstyle from Ali & Allie was $99 for The Fashion Loft Treats and Sweets 2022 Holiday Event. Can you say Festive?? The Jupiter updo comes with peppermint canes and red garland!! It’s absolutely perfect so I HAD to get it! I completed my look with boots and glasses from the Christmas Barbie Outfit by Darkness. You can find it in the Darkness MP store for $1L.

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

It’s Only a Couple of Scratches

Java Halloween dress free 3_001

It was one of those Escape Rooms where you get locked in with people you don’t know and have to work together to escape. Seems that none of us who were booked for last night got the memo about leaving knives at home. As the evening turned to night it got  very dark. And oops, no one told us to bring flashlights.

In all that inky blackness things got a wee bit out of hand. Although I may be torn up a bit I’m fine. From the looks of it our team won! We all celebrated with a round of Bloody Marys!

A Spooky Take on a Classic

I like graphic clothing with witty sayings or artwork It’s a way of expressing yourself. A longtime SL fashion designer, Simone Udimo, is the creator/owner of  Java Fashion Design. I’ve been a subscriber at her store for years. She regularly offers free gifts for everyone and always has low prices. My dress today is one of several totally free gifts at the store. Upon entering look for 2 pumpkins in the lobby. They’re really easy to spot.

I’m wearing the Prissy Perks Midi dress that has been set out as a Halloween gift at Java Fashion Design. I think it’s hysterical with all of the wounds and the saying, “I’m fine”. As you can see it’s trimmed with a drippy, bloody border. It’s sized for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Legacy, Maitreya, & SLink Hourglass.

My heels are a free gift from [QE] at Shop & Hop. The Akila heels are definitely keepers.  The styling is perfect and of course there is a color/texture change hud with a choice of 15 colors. The heels fit Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink. There are only a few days to visit Shop & Hop; it ends on November 1st.

Java Halloween dress free Closeup _001

As I mentioned in a previous post Booty’s Beauty has new makeup on the MM boards every day. The La Luna eyeshadow comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX. The awesome tattoo below my right eye was on sale at One 2K for $25L Tuesday. It looks like I have a stash of extra eyeballs inside my cheek! Unfortunately it has been set back to regular price. (Sorry about that readers).

Lastly I am wearing a set of Bento Square nails by Fatal Fashion you can pick up for free at Swank (the group is free to join). They fit SLink, Maitreya, Belleza Kupra, Legacy, & Tonic.

If you aren’t ready for Halloween it is time to get it together!! Now – run!

FabFree @ Fifteen Continues…

Today I am bringing two items from Fabulously Free’s Birthday Event. The first is this beautiful set of bow jewelry that I am wearing and the second is the cheerful flower field I’m standing in. And now that I’ve called them “first” and “second” I’m going to confuse you and talk about the second one first! Dr. Seuss is in the house.

  • .Lunaria. is the location for this fun little tulip field. It is there fabulous FREE gift for FabFree at Fifteen. The gift comes with both a static and animated version. It is all mesh, copy/mod and only 1 Li at its given size. Don’t forget your FabFree group tag to get it!
  • The bow jewelry that I am wearing are all from Beloved Jewelry by Kimbra McMillan. If you have never seen Beloved Jewelry, you are in for a treat. The amount of detail and customization options that go into her work is incredible. Let me break these down for you:
    • The spine piercings are actually part of the Miix 69L Sale, and are at her mainstore. I added them because I thought they would really finish the look. It fits Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink and comes in large and small versions.
    • The earrings are the L$15 item for FabFree @ Fifteen and unrigged. They come in two sizes and two versions. I should add you can change the metal and gem textures with one HUD and the tint/color of the bows with another on all these jewelry items.

Birthday Surprise

Birthday Surprise - Outfit

I am pleasantly surprised by these wonderful SLB19 free gifts from Alter, Essenz, and Rawr!  I was able to put together an outfit that is perfect for any birthday celebration.

The lovely dress by Alter can be dressed up for a night out or paired with some flats for a casual brunch date.  I’m a sucker for anything floral so of course these platforms from Essenz will be added to my collection of favs along with these classic earrings by Rawr!.

Feel the Rainbow!

Coming Soon

It’s time for a rainbow-filled Pride post! I have a bunch of awesome and bright free Pride finds to share with you all today. This look may be a wee bit bright for some folks, but I’m soaking it up. Feel the rainbow! 🌈

The Look

  • First off, this amazing romper is a free group gift at [WellMade]. It comes in five fab pride rainbow patterns. It fits Lara, Freya, Petite, Hourglass, Perky, Legacy, Kupra & Kups.
  • The pretty hearts on my cheeks are the latest free gift for all at Izzie’s. The gift includes Pride hearts in many variations ( bisexual, transgender, gay, etc.). I am wearing the “progress” hearts. Love it! ❤ All the different options come in BOM layers for LAQ, Genus, Catwa, Lelutka Evo and Lelutka EvoX heads. You can also grab this gift on the Marketplace if you don’t want to head to the store.
  • My rainbow ripped stockings are a free gift at Psycho Barbie available for a limited time until June 30th. These stockings come in 2 options: plain rainbow and rainbow and black. These stockings are BOM only so they work with any bakes-on-mesh enabled mesh body. You can’t see the top of them in my photo, but they say Love Wins
  • Finally, my pride popsicle stick is a free group gift at Bad Unicorn. This little pop is so cute, and it’s a brand new gift! Make sure to collect all the other free gifts at Bad Unicorn when you stop by.
