A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue’s Magic

When we were children magic was very much alive. It surrounded us like light and water in a surreal and ethereal dream of shimmer and color.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [1]

The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and monsters were not just imaginary things. Trolls hid in our closets and under our beds. We played jump across the room, slap the light switch from a distance, and huddle under the covers. I used to imagine that within me was a power I could harness to ‘zap’ away the things that went bump in the night and obliterate them into oblivion. In my mind, I was not a wee child. I was a leviathan of strength — strong, mighty, powerful, and beautiful.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [2]

Somewhere along the lines, we grow up. And when you’re a teenager the monsters are supposed to disappear. You know they aren’t in your closet anymore… it’s then you realize they are outside your door. They are, instead, real people with faces. Names. Families of their own. My dreams changed then — as did my outlook. The Tooth Fairy’s wings were crushed into dust… and Santa Claus faded into obscurity as the Grinch stole my Christmas.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [3]

It was when I was an adult that I finally understood that not only were the monsters real, but that I did have magic within me that was very real as well. It was not fairy dust or hocus pocus of course. But it was magic nonetheless. It was then that I found harmony within myself.

There is that quote. Something about being afraid of the unknown? It’s when you know that the monsters are real that it becomes okay to sleep with the light off… because you know hold the light to banish them away within the palm of your upturned hand.

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Catnap

Ever since I saw these PB&J jammies by Nerdy Girl, I’ve been singing “Peanut Butter Jelly Time!”  Today has been one of those days when I feel like I should have just stayed in my pajamas all day. Now through Sunday June 21st, you can get these beyond adorable pajama pants and a matching Peanut Butter or Jelly (shown) top for just 10 lindens each at the Nerdy Girl Cart located at the Rally Alley Cart Sale. In addition to the PB&J shirt and bottoms, you’ll find a few others, such as Thing 1 and Thing 2 tops. The tops come with a regular system layer, an Omega applier, and a Slink applier. The bottoms are fully mesh.  Everything at this weekend cart sale is 10 lindens, and there’s even a cute little freebie for everyone who stops by the Nerdy Girl Cart.

All this talk of pj’s makes me want to take a nap, and anyone who has ever had a cat knows a cat will never let you nap alone! While trying my luck at The Arcade, I came across this adorably funny hair from Fashionably Dead. This “style” includes the sweetly napping kitty, and there is just about every hair color imaginable to be had. This mesh hairstyle, and napping cat, is just 50 lindens per play at The Arcade.

Also at The Arcade this round, these cutesy eye-masks by Olive. There are several versions of this mesh mask to be had, along with a few other items as part of their “Sweet Pea” gacha set. The Sweet Pea gacha by Olive is 75 lindens per play at The Arcade. I thought this flowery version of the sleep mask was too cute to pass up!

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

Sometimes we forget to steer our own ship. We forget that we are the captain in these turbulent seas. We let an ocean of troubles wash over us and crash us against rocks and we cry out to an invisible Poseidon that no longer rules the seas: “This is unfair!”

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws [2]

So, I say to the sailor — “Come back to the helm and steer yourself away from oblivion and back to the center of the glimmering sea which once rose about you in undulating waves! Do not wait on the deck of the boat while others steer your ship! They do not stand at the helm like immobile boulders! They are but human also! Do not wait for a turn at the wheel which may never come! Take to the wheel, fight tentacle monsters, dive for treasure, shoot cannons, seek adventure!”

But do it in style! Because a girl has got to look good while talking to dead men on pirate ships! And I have just the list of treasure booty to perk up that swarthy wardrobe in your empty trunk! Check it out!

If you head to LUAS they have great group gifts as well as several Lucky Boards. You have to join the group for access, but the group is FREE. I am wearing Luas May Outlaw in Black as I was lucky enough to have my letter come up when I landed! I also headed inside where they have an amazing assortment of gachas on display, all for reasonable prices. One sweet spin on the Luas Iballa gatcha and I had a Bracers, Pauldrons & Crown set in Red for only 50L (this is a great gatcha as instead of single pieces every spin gets you a full set, just a different color! <3 for that!).

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

I topped the look off with a few other great accessories. [White~Widow] has a great new group gift out — a Face tattoo that sets around the eyes called “Mexico.” It comes in a color pack with 5 colors as well as appliers for Slink Visage and TMP Mesh Heads! A steal of a deal for a great FREE group gift (group is FREE to join!). The jewelry is was borrowed from the guy next to me… he didn’t look like he needed it. (Kidding!) But it is a current men’s gift set from Chop Zuey (group gift/350L to join) called Screaming Dead Men’s Choker and Ring and was easily resized to fit a lady.

Be sure to check out the Sim I visited! ROSSAVIK – Hell’s Gate Island is a zombie and steampunk with damage enabled and aliens, zombies, and tentacles abound for you to zap, shoot, stab or otherwise have fun attempting to battle! (It took me more than a few tries to get my pictures taken as I kept getting eaten!) — but it was loads of fun!

I Saw *Stars*

Stars Dress

Hello Fab Free! I want to start by saying that if you haven’t made it out to The Biker’s Choice Fair, I highly recommend it. I saw a lot of cool stuff from designers I knew, and some equally cool stuff from designers that were new-to-me. One of those “new-to-me” designers is *Stars*Fashion*. Currently they have two FREE mesh gifts at their TBCF shop.

The first FREE gift is this sexy little black dress shown in the photo above. When I say little, I mean this one is tiny! Still, I have to admit, as much skin as this dress shows, I really felt like it looked great on. Just be aware that this is not a dress you can bend over, or sit down in. LOL Not only is it short, it’s nearly completely open down both sides, a feature which I thought made the dress.

In addition to the smokin’ hot dress, *Stars*Fashion* has out a FREE fat pack of mesh lace-trimmed tank tops. Pictured below, these cute little tops are great for the warm weather. There are several colors/patterns included so you’re sure to like at least one. Not to mention that you kinda can’t go wrong with something that costs you nothing! There’s no need to join a group or wear any tags, just visit the *stars*Fashion* shop at The Biker’s Choice Fair.

Lastly, you may recognize this rockin’ hair style from Love’s post here. This is the FREE hair gift Catwa has waiting for you in 3 separate stores at The Biker’s Choice Fair. You will not find the hair packs for this style in the Catwa shop. One thing that I really love about this specific hair from Catwa, it comes in a “jacket” version also so it won’t interfere with most mesh clothing items. How cool is that!

Tiger Lily

BYRNE March

The BYRNE Style Group has been gifted with yet another gorgeous FREE gift! Banish the cold and snow with this bright playful dress. The dress is fully mesh, and I really like the tiled texture, it’s an edgier spin on what might have otherwise been just another floral print. The photo really does not do the dress justice, the texture is quite pretty, and I had no problem wearing this dress with my new curvy shape and the updated Slink Physique body. Do not miss out on this dress!! The BYRNE Style group is FREE to join.

Not All Fairies Have Wings

Cupid

This lovely skin from Pixy Stix brings a whole new idea to the phrase “Pretty in Pink”! Not only is the skin very pretty, it’s a nice vibrant shade of pink, and the lips are gorgeous. This skin also includes and equally dramatic purple version. The skins are a current group from Pixy Stix and they come with just about every applier you could imagine. The Pixy Stix group is currently FREE to join, so no excuses for missing out on this one!

If you’re gonna go pink, why not go all the way! In addition to my pretty new skin from Pixy Stix I finally grabbed the Valentine gift hair from Little Bones. This long, wavy, half-up style is the current group gift at Little Bones. The style includes a color change hud with a variety of pink and red fades to change things up a little. Currently the Little Bones group is $100 lindens to join.

Considering Pink was the theme for the moment I was super excited when I managed to snag this cute flower wreath headband from the Plastik gacha machine at the Thrift Shop. These pretty little headbands are just $70 lindens per play. I also happened across the perfect dainty pink dress by OrsiniRed at the Cosmopolitan Sales Room for just $59 lindens. Run and get it while it’s available at such an awesome price! There are also other colors for sale.

Last but not at all least, this super cute toadstool Pru is posing on is available for just $50 lindens per play at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The toadstools are by Roawenwood and come in several colors, commons with one pose each, rares have seven poses. There are also cute fairy rings to be had!

The Demoness

Demoness

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m feelin’ a little saucy, and letting the horns, the wings, and the tail come out! I’ve spent a lot of my free time in role-play, in many forums over the years. The truth about where Pru comes from is that she was my first ever role play character years and years ago. She’s always been a little part of me. I partially continued that version of Pru in SL role play as well. She was a demoness then, and part of her always will be. Now she’s really just an extension of my own personality. So personally, I do love this look, it’s fun, it’s sassy, and a little bit naughty. For me it’s also a lot nostalgic.

While at the Thrift Shop, of course I had to play some gacha. Let me tell you, I’m not at all disappointed. First, these awesome red bat wings are a gacha prize from PMS. They are just $50 lindens per play at the Thrift Shop and come in several colors. They include a resize script. I also grabbed this super cute very cheeky necklace from Biscuit. This 3-tier necklace reads “Hussy” in a heart shaped charm. Ask me why, I’ll never have an answer, but I love it. It makes me laugh. The necklace comes in several versions all equally cute and cheeky at $70 lindens per play.

If ever you were looking for cute accessories for your feet, the current round of the Thrift Shop gachas has some. I purposefully did not wear shoes, because I didn’t want to distract from how cute my feet looked. hahaha These cute foot chains are from ZOZ, I think they are sweet and feminine and would look great with some strappy shoes for a little something extra. These sweet little “Love ties” are just $45 lindens per play and come in several versions. Next, toe rings from M&M Incorporated. I really like these simple but pretty bands with the little stone for some added color. They are just $50 lindens per play, and I couldn’t pass them up.

Feeling good about my gacha fun, I also came across a pretty little freebie from 7Deadly Skins. This vampy red lipstick is not just pretty, it’s also FREE at the 7Deadly Skins booth at the Thrift Shop. I think it really adds to the over-all look. All the Thrift Shop loveliness aside, I’m sure you’ve noticed this pretty lace top Pru has on.

This top is the Boob Job Hunt gift from SexZ, and for just $2 lindens, it is too pretty to not have. The top can be worn as just a system layer, however it also comes with an Omega hud. The top is semi sheer, however I think the pretty lace-like pattern obscures things enough to keep it classy.

Here are the details, I hope you love it, Enjoy!

A Little This A Little That

FAFFHQ Full

Hello Fab Free’rs, I know I’ve been scarce this week, but things are settling down and I’ve got some awesome stuff to show you!

First, the mesh dress Pru has on is a current gift at Fab Free Headquarters from DressMe Designs. I love the hounds-tooth skirt, it gives this outfit a very classy look, yet still casual and comfortable. It would be perfect for work or looking awesome while out shopping and running errands.  As with all the gifts at FFHQ, this one is absolutely FREE, just stop by and pick it up!

Next, the cute star garland behind Pru is a current gacha prize from Frogstar at The Play Room. These cute garlands are just $25 lindens per play, and they come in various colors with either hearts or stars. They are super cute just hanging on the wall, and they make great back grounds for photos!

Lastly, I picked up these really unique lanterns and decorative trunks at Aisling. They are some recently added freebies at the Aisling main store. No need to join a group, just pick them up for FREE at Aisling. The lanterns come in sliver, black, and gold, and the trunk is available in the two tones shown. I think these make great props for photos, not to mention they are great decorative pieces.

!gO! Chocolate Sweetheart

Frozen Chocolate Full

Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! !gO! just recently put out an adorable Valentine’s Day themed sweater. This mesh top says “Love You” across the front and back, and has a cute pink heart pattern. I think the addition of the skinny belt gives this sweater an extra sense of style. This group gift is FREE and the !gO! group is just $50 lindens to join.

Speaking of group gifts, Little Bones just released a brand new group gift hairstyle. This shoulder-length style comes with a fat pack of color change huds, each with a hud to change the color of the scalp part of the hair. This style makes for a very pretty casual hair style. The hair is FREE for all group members, and the Little Bones group is $100 lindens to join.

You might have noticed the giant chocolate bar Pru is holding. She likes to take her chocolate on long walks. Seriously, the perfect date! The chocolate is actually part of a group gift from Frozen. The gift includes the bar of chocolate and the pose shown. The Frozen group is FREE to join, and the gift is FREE for group members.

Just when you thought that was all, the manicure Pru is sporting is one of the new Sweetheart gacha at Nail Me!. There are several cute Valentine’s themed options, each with a glitter or non-glittery version. The gacha is $25 lindens per play at the Nail Me! main location. So you can see all the cute designs, I included a copy of the Sweetheart gacha vendor photo below.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
