A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

The reams of writing that has taken place over the years about the importance of the little black dress is longer than I care to imagine.   Any nattering I can do about the importance of one is only sure to muddy the waters of deep thinking about how one must needs have a LBD for any occasion.  Instead, perhaps I’ll discuss how much I love Froot Loops.  And then, I’ll wonder what human sat down to think it would be cool to write the word “froot” instead of “fruit”.  These are the things that keep me up at night!

Lucky Girl

There are two new lucky board prizes over at Luas!  You may have guessed by now that this little black dress is one of the two prizes that are currently available, the other being a red dress.  The letter A came up pretty quick for me this time, so I suggest you grab a bunch of friends and head over (preferably 26 of them, all with a different letter of the alphabet starting their name? eheheh) and then wait til your letter comes up.  The Luas group is 50L to join, but there is a huge wall of monthly group gifts and the lucky letter boards get changed up pretty often.  Totally worth it!

Journal Musing

Journal Musing

I was having a conversation with Arielle yesterday about how much we both love stationery.  I am the sticker queen (I have far too many to ever use, but they just make me happy) and she is the pen queen.  We’ve both come to the realization, however, that we’re both obsessed with journals.  You know, the really pretty ones that you have no idea what you’re going to write in, but you still buy it because *sssooooo prettyyyyy*.  Yeah, well now I’ve got journals in SL that I surely won’t write in, but I have to have anyway!

Non-Sequitur

My little journal rant has nothing to do with my outfit (I mean, other than the journals I’m holding, obviously), but my sweet top and skirt were putting me in the mood for being artistic and such.  They’re the latest group gift from Maai, and they’re completely free.  Aren’t the little heart buttons adorable?  I can’t even.  Join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor at the landing point and they’re all yours!

Seeking Surfers

Seeking Surfers
I’m off to the beach today, because I’m totally in need of all things sunny and hot.  And by that, I mean that I just saw a surfer over there and he looks suspiciously like Aquaman, if you catch my drift…

The Shade of it All

I’m still sifting through all the steals and deals that are still available in the hangover period from V-Day.  I headed over to the Sapphire sim and found that the gifts on the Shades of Love Hunt are still out for all to gather.  I walked about picking up some of the prizes, and found one quite lovely 20L prize from Seniha – this three piece swim (or possibly lingerie!) set.  The gifts on this hunt are kind of all over the place in the stores, so you won’t necessarily find the gifts from the shop in their own store.  Anywhos, as mentioned, this pretty little number is 20L and comes in this lovely “chestnut” hue.   You’ve got until Feb 25th to take part!

Kick Back

Kick Back

The weekend has arrived, FabFree!  I’m still reveling in the heart-spattered goodness of Valentine’s Day.  If it’s sweet, red, pink and sugary then I’m all for it these days.

Not Anti-Magic

This cute cropped top is the latest subscriber gift over at Promagic.  It comes with an HUD to change to 5 different heart-covered textures and is just super cute.  I think it would be fairly easy to make different looks happen with this top, pairing it with jeans, or even a skirt.  Always fun to switch things up a bit when you can.  To get it, you’ll have to click on the subscriber unit at Promagic.  It’s the big vendor with the ad for this top on it.  If you are part of the subscriber group already, you’ll have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get it, it will be delivered  automatically after that.  If you aren’t yet subscribed, just click! It’s all free, I tells ya!

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Shoe-tastic

StephaneL have put out these cute heels as their gift for Valentine’s Day, and they just make me smile.  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.  To get them, join the group for 15L and they’re all yours!  You may want to also click on the big poster advertising 500L of store credit for group members, because as far as I understand it, that’s about to disappear!  Don’t wait!

/me makes heart eyes at you all

It’s All Love

It's All Love
I am entirely aware that Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to toss out everything that has a heart on it.  I’m a proponent of love 24/7, so I’ll be donning the hearts til I’m well and ready to stop.  (I’m sure one of my fits of moody darkness with come upon me at some point!).  Let’s dive in to all the goodies that appeared over V-Day that we haven’t gotten to show you yet!

Soft Wool

There’s a new group gift over at Tetra!  Whenever one appears I get kind of excited since they’re so cute and well made.  To get this pretty sweater (it comes with an HUD to change to 4 other other textures too), join the group for 50L, and click on the vendor.  If you’re feeling a bit lazy (isn’t it weird that we get tired from TPing?  Is that just me? ) you can also join the group from afar and check in group notices to grab it, which is always a nice option.  This gift is out for a limited time, and will be gone on Feb. 28th!

Only Cats!

The little heart keychain I’ve got hooked around my finger made me LOL when I saw it.  It’s a new gift over at Boutique 187 and is completely free.  There are several amusing sayings to choose from on the heart, and I’m sure you’ll find one that tickles your fancy.  There are a few other completely free gifts there in the free gift section, so grab them too!

Lots of Love from me!

Bern-ing Love

Bern-ing Love

Yesterday, I showed you the lovely gifts that are on offer from Shanti on the inaugural FabFree Valentine’s Day Hunt.  I want to dive into the offerings by Paper.Sparrow (our very own Bunnie Francis is the designer!) and go on a little rant that I will most likely be killed for later.  It was nice knowing you all.  Bunnie is a very selfless, creative, kind, and generous person.  She’ll listen when you need an ear, and she’s always coming up with new ways to give to our community.  I am really lucky to have a Bunnie in my life, because she is a little ball of energy and creativity that truly inspires.  Thank you for organizing this hunt, Bunbun!

High and Low

So, the thing with Arielle and Bunnie hiding things is that they’re quite good at it.  I’ve warned you!  When you do the Paper.Sparrow part of the FabFree hunt, located at our Info Hub,  you’ll find this lovely dress and heels (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink & Voluptuous) for just 1L each.  So sweet, right?  Then, if you wear your FabFree tag while you’re hunting, you’ll be able to grab these massive decor hearts featuring a very cozy Bernie S. on them for free! They come in a pile of pretty candy hues.  I think I’ll look just like him at work tomorrow… Anyway!  You know what I mean!

Good Fortune

Good Fortune

Happy Lunar New Year!  I know I’m a few days behind in wishing everyone a prosperous year of the Ox, but it’s my understanding that celebrations last several days, so I’m hoping you’ll all forgive my slowness.  Let’s light the lanterns and don some new clothes to make this year a sweet one.

The Zenith of it All

I picked up this festive and absolutely stunning dress over at Zenith.  They’re known for their lovely Lunar New Year gifts, and this year is no exception.  The LiHua dress comes in several bright colours, and there are even a pair of shoes to match (not pictured).  You’re going to be the belle of the lantern festival in this look!  To get yours, join the Zenith group for free and then click on the vendor.  There are lots of other pretty gifts to grab while you’re at it.

Feel the Love

Feel the Love

Ok FabFree.  First things first, Happy Valentine’s Day!  I want to go on a flowery, goopy rant about how much I heart my FabFree bloggers.  They work tirelessly (without remuneration!) and are constantly cheerful and exuberant about what we do here on the blog.  I was particularly touched by the extra steps that Bunnie and Arielle took the other day when they put together a hunt at our FabFree Info Hub.  These two girls are so sweet, kind and generous that it always makes me grin.  Thank you both so much for your generosity and hard work, it really is wonderful.

What’s at the Hub?

I’m going to show you the lovely hunt gifts from Shanti today, made by the lovely Arielle.   When you search for the little FabFree heart at our Info Hub (it’s a heart with our pretty rainbow on it) you’ll find three items from Shanti.  The Shabby Valentine Dresser is right up my alley (I love Shabby Chic) and is completely free when you wear your FabFree group tag.  With a bit more searching, you’ll also be able to pick up the lovely valentine leggings and booties to go about your day cozy and comfy for 1L each.  How awesome is that?

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody

I’ll show you the goodies from Paper.Sparrow next time – but if you get a chance to thank Bunnie and Arielle, please do.  They’re awesome.

You’ve got until February 20th to pick up the prizes at the InfoHub!

A Brief Respite

A Brief Respite

Valentine’s Day always falls in the dead of winter where I live, so the bright red and pink hearts that permeate the world at this time really perks up what is usually a cold, dreary month.  Instead of ruminating on the piles of snow outside, I choose to go and frolic among the spring meadows of SL, taking just enough time to smell the roses.

Slip Into It

The latest group gift from COCO has made its appearance, and it’s this slinky slip dress that is sexy in a kind of nonchalant way.  I can just imagine the silky material flowing gracefully over every curve of one’s body.  The best part is, it’s completely free when you join the free COCO group.  There are so many lovely gifts there, and new ones are always popping up, so a great group to stay in.

Heel, Toe!

Mosquito’s Way have updated the group gift section again, much to my excitement.  They always have such well-crafted and pretty gifts for their members, that I always feel a little thrill of excitement when a new one pops up.  Join the group for 50L, and you’ll be able to pick up these pretty ombré heels come in three different colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Ahh, sunshine.  Forgot what that looked like!
