Not All Who Wander are Lost

Not all who wander are lost...

Hey gang!

Felt the need to just get away from it all today, found myself in an enchanted forest with ruins.  I have a story about ruins.  A friend’s aunt and uncle traveled to Rome and came back with photos, of course, while showing them to my friends parents, the Uncle complained that the buildings were all run down and falling apart.  The aunt replied, “Oh honey, they are *ruins!*  They’re ruined!”

So here I am in the forest with the ruined ruins.  Donning yet another free group gift hair from Fabia (@ Energy Weekend Group, Free to join!).  I told you there was a wall full!  Wanted to show you one more before I lose them all in my messy inventory!

So now, in all my chattering, I’ve wandered too far and must find my way back once again.  Hope you have all had a splendid weekend!

One Big Runway

KS @ Girls Heaven

Took the little man out for a stroll this morning and came upon a modeling agency!  Saw it was mostly male clients, but little man wanted me to inquire and so I did.  Unfortunately they only take on human male clients and my little man Chi was a no go.  😦  I assured him that doesn’t make him any less appealing as a canine model and that he is very handsome indeed! (You can get your very own handsome little man (or little lady!) at Jian at the Cheeky Chihuahuas Gacha, only 50L).  The key is below:

I, meanwhile, am here to also show you this cute group gift from Lamb (hair).  There are a bunch of group gifts over at Lamb, their group is free to join, so go grab some cute hair whydoncha?!

And so, like I told my little man, as long as you feel good in what you wear (or au naturel like my little man  lol) and you walk through life like it is one big runway, you are a model baby!

Until next time, happy Sunday!

Citywalk

Hey gang!

Just recently got to get out to the city and have a bit of a stroll.  I enjoyed some lovely spring weather and sunshine.  So nice after being extra cooped up all winter (thanks Pandemic!)  Really just wanted to show off this awesome hair that is a group gift over at Energy (Group is free to join!) by Fabia.  They have a whole wall of them over there!

Gardening, Bohemian Style

Boho Garden

I don’t know about y’all, but I am enjoying starting to get out in my garden.  The sunshine, the smell of the flowers, I love it!  Things are starting to grow and its getting closer to a time when I can just chill and sip some ice cold sweet tea (I’m a southern girl, doncha’ know).  Luckily I have this beautiful Bohemian Garden Shack to relax near my garden.  You can find it at this month’s Swank Event.  It is by Dreamland Designs, it is beautiful and comes with plenty of poses.

Now of course I’m not here without a freebie for y’all so I have this adorable boho style dress from Be Bold, it is a Fab Free Group Gift so you can wear your group tag and grab it.  The Fab Free group is of course free to join.  It comes with a HUD giving you four color choices and it fits Maitreya Lara.

Now I am about to grab my watering can and give these babies a drink, so I have to run!

Your favorite blonde gardening blogger,

Happy Easter Gang!  (To those who celebrate it)

I’m back again with another super cute hunt giftie, this one is a Spring colored romper from Ari-Pari.  This is from the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes hunt (runs until 4.30) and is a 1L prize.  It comes with a 10 color HUD and fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The cute hair is a free group gift from Love, and that group is temporarily free to join, she has lots of cute stuff, so I would jump on that one while its free  🙂  Well worth it!

The floating stars and fireflies?  I *knew* you were gonna ask, cause, how could you *not* ask, they are soooo cute!  They are both from Persefona and they are absolutely free, no group required.  Just pop into their shop and clickty click!  They have lots of nifty fun stuff there, I will definitely be going back!

So, what I’m trying to say here is, you can get this entire cute spring sparkly look for just 1L!

Hippity Hoppity the blonde is on her way…. (to find more freebies, natch!)

It’s almost Easter and many of the hunts are reflecting the Easter and Spring theme.  This adorable dress is from Starshine Designs for the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes Hunt.  As you can see this adorable little blue butterfly landed on my nose while I was doing my photos and made me go all cross eyed in my pic!  A couple of days late for April Fools but there you have it!  This cute dress comes in:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The hunt is a 1L hunt with 25L exclusive items.  This dress is a 25L exclusive so you don’t wanna miss it.  The hunt goes from today, April 3 to April 30.  I expect soon we will all be sleeping very well from the hunting exhaustion and dreaming of all sorts of eggs with goodies in them!

The uber cute necklace is from Sweet Thing, its free on the group lucky letters boards.  The group is free to join.  She has lots of cute stuff.

Happy hunting y’all!

Celebrating April!

3.28.21 wp_031

Hey Gang!

Its a new month and you know what that means!  It’s time to see what we celebrate in April (aside from Easter, of course) Let’s have a look-see….

Today, of course is April Fools’ Day, so watch out for those pranksters!  I used to be one of those pranksters but everyone knows me too well and they know I will be up to no good! So, no fun for me cause everyone is all waiting for me to pull a prank.  Alas.  Now, of course it’s not *only* April Fools Day (and they put April at the beginning of it, like every month has it’s own fools day and we need to distinguish.  the heck??), but also National Burrito Day and National One Cent Day.   I think Taco Bell should jump on this one and sell one cent burritos all day today.

Now for the rest of the month….

2. Good Friday, nice normal Holiday, also World Autism Day.

3. National Find a Rainbow Day (that’s a nice one!) and World Party Day.  Especially for those who went in search of said rainbow and actually found one!  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be able to stand in the rainbow colors so I would get on my bike and chase after the rainbow, trying to find the part where it met the earth (I didn’t care about the pot of gold.  Silly little me!), I wanted to bask in those colors up close!  I don’t need to tell you this story does not end in World Party Day for yours truly!

4. Happy Hoppy Easter!  And apparently, for the Easter Bunnies to celebrate, it is also National Carrot Day (who did that???).  I kid you not.  That’s not all.  It is also National Hug a News Person Day and National Tell a Lie Day.  Do we really need that last one?  And no, it is not an excuse to get together with family (wear a mask and stay safe folks!) and tell them all sorts of lies about your life.   Not a good holiday custom for anyone.

5. Now being the Trekkie I am, I know this is First Contact Day.  I was disappointed that it was not listed.  I guess that’s the Universe paying me back for how long it took me to understand why May 4th was Star Wars day.   Today is also, strangely enough…. National Flash Drive Day.  Why little bitty flash drives would get their own day is beyond me.  Maybe it doesn’t mean them at all, maybe it means we need to drive around in our cars and flash people!  Woohoo!  Happy National Flash Drive day!  *giggle*

6. Happy New Beer’s Eve!  Who knew that was a thing!  *Why* is it a thing?  Go on and read the 7th.

7. Happy National Beer Day (this is why).  Today is also No Housework Day (well if you are drinking beer all day to celebrate, I suppose that is understandable.).  It is also World Health Day, which I don’t think ties in with the beer thing very well.  You certainly can’t celebrate both.

9. National Name Yourself Day (that’s fun!), and also National Unicorn Day!  I need to start celebrating both of these! (I luurrrrveee Unicorns!)

10. National Hug Your Dog Day.  Hopefully people don’t need a holiday to give their dog hugs.  Mine always get a bazillion hugs every single day.  So much so that they get sick of me I think.

13.  National Be Kind to Lawyers Day.  Um, ok.

15. National High Five Day!  High five everyone you know!  and people you don’t!  Oh wait, the pandemic.  Substitute high fives for fist or elbow bumps and then get away from each other, pronto and wash.  That takes the fun out of that.  Thanks pandemic!  Sigh.

17. International Bat Appreciation Day.  I think this means the animals and not the baseball kind.    ‘Tis also International Haiku Poetry Day and National Cheese Ball Day!  So show your favorite bat some appreciation, while reading him/her a Haiku you wrote for them and sharing in a delicious snack of cheese balls.

Oh little Bat
Munching on a Cheese Ball
How I do adore Thee

24. National Pigs in a Blanket Day (Yum!  No I am not going to make a joke about little piggies all snuggled on a chilly spring night under a blanket together and how cute they must be!) and National Skipping Day!  While eating your little piggie in a blanket, I am guessing.  That combination sounds like a happy hobby.  Could be fattening too eating all those piggies in blankets, but do you suppose the skipping burns the calories off?

30. National Bubble Tea Day (I had to google this, it sounded so good and I guess I am behind the times cause everyone but me knows about this.  I plan to try some in rl soonly!) and we end the month with bubble tea aaaaaand…. National Hairball Day!  I wonder how people celebrate that last one?  With lots of catnip?

This all makes me realize one thing, humans are CRAZYYYY!

Oh and I did come in here to tell you about a freebie.  This comes from Shanti, via Ajuda Brazil.  It fits BOM and classic avatars (I’m getting away with it using BOM on my Maitreya Body).  There is a whole wall of Shanti freebies there, some more for classic bodies and some for mesh bodies too!  There are several floors of freebies there, so you definitely want to check it out!

This is enough blather from me for one post.  I’m off to the beach next time!

Peace & Pot Pies,

Bad to the Bone

spring_009

Hey gang!

Easter time and spring conjure up all sorts of bunny-ness.  But I feel we tend to overlook the bad bunnies of the world.  Those cute, but very bad bunnies deserve their time in the spotlight as well, and so I bring to you a free goodie straight from The Free Dove, courtesy of Zoom.  This cute cropped Bad Bunny sweater is so cute and stylish, I’ve paired it with pants, but I bet it would be super cute with just about anything.  Skirt, shorts, even a sexy pair of undies (bad bunny says rawr!).  Speaking of these pants, they are *another* freebie, this time courtesy of Eternity via Ajuda Brazil.  Gone are the days, back in my noob time (eons ago!  lol) when freebies, well, you knew they were freebies.  They *looked* like freebies.  Nowadays, the freebies rival and sometimes surpass the clothes you shell out your lindens for!  So in sl, you can’t always say “you get what you pay for!” as it’s just not always the case!  So many designers are generous and they share some amazing work in their giveaways!  Props to them!  (and I never say props.  lol)

Now for the practical part of our program.  The shirt fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

and the pants fit:

  • Classic
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

They also come with a 20 color HUD so these pants can match everything in your sl closet.  Yowza!

I’ve got soooooo much stuff for you gang!  So I’ll wrap this up here so I can go work on more!  Yay!

Warrior Queen

3.28.21 wp_007

Warrior Princess Queen.  She will protect her kingdom at any cost.

Hey gang!

Got some goodies for you!  First off, Trend has a $500L gift credit free for VIP group members, and right now their group is free to join!  The credit will be available until 3.31, and will expire on 4.15.  I went and got this wicked corset outfit.  It made me feel like a warrior.  😉  Much of what they have is makeup though so its a great time to scoop up some makeup *or* an outfit, whatever your fancy may be.  There are also some VIP gifts upstairs so don’t forget to grab those while they are there.

The makeup is a new Fab Free gift from Rubedo called Tribal.  It comes in various colors and went perfect with the outfit.  I’m wearing it on that infamous head we heard so much about this week, the Catwa HDPRO Queen Head.  And if the hair looks familiar, it’s because our very own Fab Free Queen Aline (hey that rhymes!) blogged it here.  It is a free group gift at Love which is free to join right now as well.  Great time again to scoop up all their group gifties.  I haven’t even finished going through those just yet.

More goodies very very soon!
