Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

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

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

Fame

Fame

Fame what you like is in the limo
Fame what you get is no tomorrow
Fame what you need you have to borrow

-Fame by David Bowie

Sometimes a girl just needs to feel a bit high fashion.

When I saw this dress by AtaMe at the Halloween Shop & Hop, I just knew I had to get it and wear it in a photo.  The lines have such *movement* that it was begging to be photographed!  Oh did I mention that it is one of the absolutely free gifts that you can get at Shop and Hop?  No group required!  I seriously fell in love with this entire look!  It comes with a HUD allowing you to change metals and colors on the dress.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

For some reason too this dress made the song “Fame” pop into my head.  Originally by David Bowie, but I love the more upbeat version done by Duran Duran.  My Mom used to *love* David Bowie (yeah she was cool!), so she might argue with me on that point.  Gosh I miss her. (by the way, not to be confused with the Irene Cara song Fame that I sang in a show when I was a teenager, that’s a whole ‘nother song!)

But I digress.  This photo makes me wish I had a fancy ultra modern house and some fancy couches I could hang this photo up on the wall over.  I do have a cute sl house, but it has very little wall space and while it is rather modern-ish, it is also very cabin-ish, so not the right look for my photo.  If I hadn’t just got this house recently I might go hunting for one to match the picture because well, as Aline also knows, one can never have enough houses!  Nor reasons to get houses.  😉

I better stop thinking before I go looking at houses.  But it might be too late to stop that part!

Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame……
What’s your name?

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!

Treat, or Trick??

Trick or Treat? Trick!

So….

One of our readers contacted me with a tip.  She said she found a place with lots of great deals and it would be perfect on Fab Free and gave me the LM.    I thought awesome.  We can always use more goodies for you guys and I happily went off to check it out.  What an awesome treat this was going to be!

However….  all was not as it seemed!  Little did I know that this was a trick.

I came to a cute little cottage and thought it must just be a little shop, but the door was locked, so I knocked, but once I did, this sign appeared!  The door opened on it’s own and I was pulled inside a pitch dark room, I couldn’t see anything!  I only felt cold, foul smelling breath on my neck and something strong had me in its grasp!  A deep, gravely voice spoke, much too close to my ear for comfort.  “Why have you come here?”  I struggled to catch my breath and speak.

“I… I… I only…”

“Speak!” the voice shouted and I felt spittle hit my face in the dark and that foul breath again.  I could feel something sharp against my skin.

I was shaking uncontrollably.  I forced myself to speak, though barely a whisper came out. “Tr…  tr…. trick, or…. orr…. tr”

“What did you say?” It shook me hard and the voice seemed to get angrier every time it spoke.  I felt the blood draining from my limbs as the unknown entity held me ever tighter each time.

I knew there was one thing to do and one thing only, so I tried to take a deep a breath as I could, and said as loudly and forcefully as possible “I said… TRICK OR TREAT!”

I felt the ground under my feet start to crumble and I started to lose my footing, the creature was screaming as if in agony, I lost my balance and fell forward onto the broken ground.  It was only then I realized the creature (or whatever it was!) had let go, and I ran for where the door had been, my hands fumbled against the wall in the darkness.  I felt something thrashing behind me and the screams continuing, I thought surely someone must be able to hear all this noise!  Please, please let someone hear and come help me!  I was panicked, but I suddenly felt the knob of the door and pulled it open with all my might!

I ran back into the daylight, as fast as my legs could carry me!  There were spiders on my face and I tried to brush them off as I ran, I felt scratches I had gotten from the struggle and something, what was it?  Something black was oozing out of my mouth!  How did that even get there???  What happened to me?!

In my confusion I wasn’t looking where I was running and I stepped off an embankment and lost my footing, I was falling!  Autumn colors blurred past my eyes!  There was nothing to catch, I was heading for the ground!

And then I woke up!  Whew!  I hate weird dreams like that!!!

oh yes and I’m wearing a gift for Shop and Hop from Limited Addiction, no group required and completely free.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

My cute shoes are free from the Shop and Hop as well, made by KC Couture and they fit:

  • Belleza
  • Kalhene Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

More goodies as listed below.  😉  They may have taken my sanity in that little house, but they sure as heck didn’t get my freebies!!!!

Happy October!  😀

Just Do It!

gym_009

Hey gang,

Just a quickie today, something a little out of the ordinary for you!

It’s getting to be that time of year when its cooler out so we eat more, and there are holidays, so we eat more, and the holidays make us feel certain ways so maybe we eat and drink more….

So I thought, what I need is a little workout area of my own!  Maybe if Arielle is working out, it will inspire me to workout too (I’m not holding my breath!  lol)

Either way I found these adorable items at Dench Designs.  There is an exercise mat (that comes with barbells to work out with!  They attach automatically!) for only 50L, and a treadmill for only 40L!  Both are low prim too so they can be used even if you are low on prims!

As bloggers we need our bodies to look fab (no pun intended!) and so there is no slacking off when we have to keep toned to showcase all sorts of clothing for our valued readers!

You got this gang!

More from me soon!  (probably sooner than you would like! *winks*) (I have no idea what that means either and I wrote it!  Welcome to my brain, its a dark and scary place sometimes!)

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

Divine Wisdom of the Earth Goddess

Ancient Wisdom

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!

How Now Spotted Cow!

Mooh! Sept GG Cow onesie

When I was a child I played in the shade of a large tree. On the other side of the fence was a pasture with several cows. They loved to hang out in the shade too.

Simpler Times

Now that I have managed to survive the destruction wrought by Hurricane Ida (btw, it’s my name in RL), I wanted to get back to simpler times. Unfortunately, the reality of simpler times went all the way back  to the pre-electricity era! God bless the thousands of linemen and power company workers trying to put our grid back together!

Another Great Mooh! Group Gift

I was thrilled when I saw the latest group gift at Mooh! I mean, how can you NOT love a cow onesie?? It fits today’s mood & vibe perfectly.
