Fashionably Frigid

Fashionably Frigid

I’ve been hunting like a maniac the last few days, and despite wanting to rip my hair out now and then, I’ve found some really fantastic gifties!  The Women Only Hunt has been delivering some fabulous finds (you’ve probably seen a bunch of them on the blog) and I hunted down an outfit for a chilly and fashionable afternoon of standing outside full-sized gingerbread cottages.

Dressed for Success

I’m wearing a dress of an icy hue that I got for free at Ersch through the Women Only Hunt.  With a little bit of patience, and perhaps some eye rubbing, I found this distinctive dress.  It comes with an HUD of pastel colours, and one with darker colours.  You can even go red and green for Christmas!  Basically, you can mix and match the bows and dress colour to your heart’s content.  Oh, and by the way the back of the dress has a cute heart cut out on it!  The Lensa dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Frosty Frames

The glasses I’m wearing are another Women Only Hunt free find from Dazed .  I really like the frosted glass on the glasses which give a cool wintry look.  Seek and ye shall find!

Strike a Pose

You can’t take a good photo without a cute pose, and this free pose was my quarry at Hello Poses.  The box had 3 different posing options and their mirrors in it.  You can pose all day long!

If you’ll excuse me now, I’m getting a bit hungry and that corner of the house has my name on it!

Snow Bunny 

12-13-2017

 Getaway…

“Why don’t the two of us plan a getaway?” I suggested. “How about a ski resort? I would really enjoy lounging by the fire, drinking hot chocolate.” She said, as she was lounging by the fire, drinking hot chocolate…

Bunny Tracks…

After placing reservations, we were off to the resort. Following a good night’s rest, I awoke early and ordered room service for two. She arose to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast. She grumbled and pulled the comforter back over her face. When she finally woke up, I was urging her to get dressed so we could hit the slopes. “But I’ve never skied before.” she exclaimed  >.<  I guess we are stuck on the bunny slopes today …. ARGH…

Skiing FREEstyle…

Today we are wearing a FREE gift (no group join) from i.mesh. The rigged Snow Suit comes for both him and her and also includes a HUD with several different color choices to get your favorite look for the slopes,  no matter how big or small they are… I also found the Stocking Cap w/Hair, a FREE group gift from Dura. This also comes with a texture HUD to get your perfect hair color.

Marshmallow World

Marshmallow World

 

Well, I went into the woods in questionable attire again.  But I say the cold is all about attitude.  I guess that comes from being a Canadian, or something like that.  I shook my fist at the cold wind, and mustered enough attitude to stay warm for ages.  Well, at least long enough to snap this photo!

Santa Baby

This flouncy festive frock is a free find at FurtaCor (say that five times fast!).  It comes complete with the top, skirt, boots, stockings and a cute Santa hat.  I do love a full outfit!  The FurtaCor group is free to join, and there are a whole bunch of other free gifts on the wall.  This outfit comes with many sizing options.  The top is an applier, which can also be worn as a cute Christmassy bodysuit.  Appliers for the top and stockings provided in the package are Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and TMP.  The knee high boots come in several sizes as well:  Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Venus and Physique, and an alpha layer is also included.  The sweet tulle skirt comes in sizes XXS – L.

Come on then, get into the spirit!

Like Being in a Snow Globe

12-12-2017

All shook up…

I’m not going to lie, For me, most of 2017 has felt like I’ve been trapped in a snow globe and just as the snow settles to the bottom, I’m shook up again, and again… rinse and repeat. I most look forward to the briefest of moments when all is calm and I can enjoy a momentary peace.

Getting jiggy…

Today, I’m wearing the Jacket Hoodie, the Dear Santa  Hunt gift from Get Jiggy! The jacket comes in sizes XS-XL and includes a HUD with 19 jacket colors and 8 hoodie colors. All the gifts on the Dear Santa Hunt are just 1L each, or save yourself the bother of looking and just buy it for 25L at the Hunt sign.

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

I’m NOT Gonna take a Sick Day

12-11-2017

To call off or not to call off…

With only eight days of work left for the remainder of the year, I’m determined not to take a day off for health reasons. There is too much left to do before the year ends and I hate trying to play catch-up.  But the couch does feel comfy, as does the Brent Loungewear I found at Sin Original as part of the Candy Cane 9 Hunt. This 2L hunt has different paths for Men’s, Ladies, and Home and Garden. And the great thing is, there is a photo of the gift on each hunt sign. No need to waste your 2L on items you don’t want.  The Candy Cane 9 Hunt runs until December 25th, so get your gifts before Santa takes them away. Yep, gonna call off today… Ummm…  could someone please hand me the remote? It’s soooooooo far away…..

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

Merry Christmas Darling

Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

  • ADAM
  • Aesethetic

The blue shirt with tartan short sleeves and the maroon pants will have you looking snappy as you accept all the gifts you will be receiving this year. (hint, hint) The Giz Seorn group does have a one time 50L join fee, but there are always nice gifts available.
