Socking It To Me

Snapshot_003I Don’t Understand

There is one thing about men that I will never understand… Actually there are several things, but one strikes me particularly hard today – Why oh why, do the socks go on the floor beside the laundry hamper?  I even moved the hamper where he was tossing them last week, thinking to myself “Ok…  if I can’t beat him, I need to join him“, but no…  The socks are still beside…  the…  laundry … hamper.

I am considering that perhaps there is some kind of negative magnetic force that keeps them from going inside the basket.  What else could it possibly be?  I am reading up on the subject…  “How To Understand Him”.  Wish me luck.

At Least One Thing Was Clear

One thing that was really clear to me today was that I was really glad I picked up the Zenovia Outfit as a free group gift at MonaLISA.  I joined this group for 100L some time in December to take advantage of a lucky board prize [blogged here] that is still available, and stopped in today to check out what was available in the way of group offers.  There are tons of group gifts, a midnight mania board, and a few group lucky boards too.

The Zenovia Outfit all goes on in one click and includes the skirt, top, and cardigan.  It comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the alphas in the case that you need them.

Like My Hair?

I think I jumped up and down when I saw that Truth was participating in this new round of The Epiphany with three gorgeous long hairstyles at just 50L per play!  I am wearing Wind today, and can’t wait to get my hands on the other two as well!  All of the braids and waves are done perfectly.

Scarlet Enchantress

Snapshot_003Good afternoon Fabulous readers :).  I stopped in at .PoshTale. the other day to see what was new, and I am sure glad that I stopped by because as I was scanning around I noticed that there was a new “to me” midnight mania board prize.  I gave the board a slap, and my prize was magically delivered at midnight when it locked down!

What’s The Prize?

ETA: .PoshTale. has changed their midnight mania board prize to a new gift.  Have a peek at their board instore for the new prize details!

The midnight mania board prize that I speak of is the Ovina Mesh Gown which could be worn as formal wear or even as roleplay medieval wear.  This dress comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those that require it.  It is not made specifically for Maitreya, but worked well with the alpha system in the HUD.  As a bonus, it also includes a texture change HUD for dress and scarf (which is attached to the dress) so you can wear this in your favourite shade.  I was feeling red today!

Be Safe Tonight!

Tonight is New Years Eve!  Be safe everyone, and best wishes for the coming year!

I’ll Keep You Warm

Snapshot_002

See? I don’t know how it happens… The goofy furballs just follow me home wherever I go!  I found these little guys chasing eachother’s tails, bouncing through the snow drifts on The Winter Trace Sim while I was out for my morning walk today.  One of them extra snuggly, and the other extra playful. I should keep them right? 😀  There is always room for two more, right Serena? (Serena always has my back in this department).

What’s Keeping Me Warm Today

I picked up these two little guys and snuggled them warm in my big comfy sweater (which is incidentally now completely covered in mud and white fur *sighs*) that I picked up as a free gift at The Wash Cart Sale!  When I initially saw the Mimi Mesh Sweater Gift at the Tiffany Designs display, I thought it was just the sweater, but upon opening it, it does indeed include the pants too!  Just pay the vendor 0L and this outfit is yours!

Sizes included:

  • Sweater:  Fitmesh XS-L w/ alpha, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP
  • Pants:  System Layer & Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Boots, To Boot.

You can find these Nyka Boots, available in black or brown for just 10L each at The Wash Cart Sale as well – only these you’ll find at the Urbania display.  These do come with an alpha layer if you need it, and you can shift them around so whatever feet you have – they’ll work.

The Pupperdoodles…

You can play for these cute little Holiday Huskies at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  Some you hold, some you rez – all are cute!

Togetherness

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulouses!  Just the other day on FabFree, Carson Caiben showed off the latest group gift for guys at American Bazaar [HERE], which was a very nice men’s trench coat in black, but you should also know that they have a matching free group gift out for women too, in the form of the Madamoiselle Coat which is also in black.  I am displaying said lovely coat in my photo today ;).  With American Bazaar’s free group join, you really can’t go wrong!

What sizes you say?

This coat comes in mesh XS-L and includes an alpha layer for those not on a mesh body.

My Furry Friends

After a recent Fabville grinchy incident, I am keeping all of my furry friends close!  I tried my luck on the Le Poppycock Animal Family Gacha machine (50L per play) at The Liason Collaborative and was lucky enough to get this rare pose with all of the animals in just a couple of plays.  All of the poses in the set are really cute!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Santa Baby

Santa BabyHi There Fab Free’rs! I can just feel Christmas inching closer, and I’m starting to get excited. I hope you are also! For this post what started with a sexy coat quickly turned into a sexy Santa. lol I call her “Santa Baby”. While the sex does almost ooze from this look, I do think it can be toned down a little with some jeans and a cute top under the coat. Either way, it’s a lot of fun, especially for the holidays. Now I’ll get to telling you all about the  Fab finds that made this Santa Baby look possible!

Santa Baby Look
Eternity Santa Hat

Starting with the hat, this one I found on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. The Santa hat is by Eternity, and no holiday Santa outfit would be complete without a hat like this. This particular hat has resize scripts so it will easily fit male and female avatars. I tilted mine some to better suit all Pru’s fluffy hair!

Indented Holiday Gift

The best part of this look is the jacket in my opinion. This jacket is the FREE holiday gift at Indented. You’ll find it sitting under the Christmas Tree just inside the entrance of the Indented main location. This FREE group gift includes the jacket in unique sizes for specific body types. It also comes in several colors including the red color shown, green, black, and brown. The Indented group is FREE to join. Once you’ve got your Indented tag, you can purchase the gift under the Christmas Tree for zero linden.

AVICANDY Santa’s Woolly Socks 

These cute holiday themed applier socks are another Marketplace buy. They are from a shop called AVICANDY which is known for fun socks and stockings among other things. This specific pair of socks is 49 lindens on the market place and has appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible bodies. Additionally there are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Perch Boots 

These cute boots by Perch are their contribution to the Women Only Hunt 2. The WOH2 hunt is a FREE hunt, and you’ll be searching for a snowflake. These cute boots come with a color change HUD that allows you to choose between 4 neutral colors. They can also be resized via a touch menu. These boots from Perch are not built for specific feet, and include an alpha layer so that classic avatars can wear them as well as mesh avatars. I did need to re-position them some to sit right with my Maitreya Lara body.

I hope you like this saucy Santa look! Here are the details.

Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets ;).

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!
