Fight Like a Girl

Women's Day

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
I am older than I once was
And younger than I’ll be, that’s not unusual
It isn’t strange after changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same

The Boxer – Simon & Garfunkel

Hey fab gang,

As usual, I am a day late and a dollar short (well, Linden).  Yesterday we celebrated International Women’s Day.  This newest group gift from Belle Epoque got me thinking about how women have had to fight for everything…. voting, equal rights (still working on that one!)… Why, this article lists everything, in case you are interested for the US history on women’s rights, anyway (and as a self-proclaimed *non* history buff, even I found it very interesting!).

The Belle Epoque group is only 10L to join and you get several gifts, including this one, a boxing outfit that fits Maitreya, and is specific for Women’s Day.

My backdrop is a free gift you can scoop up at the Cyber Fair at the Lanevo booth.  There is no group required.  The Cyber Fair funs until the 23rd of March so you have some time to grab this.

I’d also like to take this moment to speak to the ladies out there.  We women often forget just how powerful we really are.  We are the creators of life and have a very strong connection to the spiritual.

As Albus Dumbledore once said though “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”  Remember that the strongest power you have is your power of choice.  Don’t ever let anyone take that away from you and please please don’t ever give it away.  From this day forward, decide to choose peace, kindness, hope and most of all love.  All women have the ability to create these energies in multitudes and it is our responsibility to choose to bring them into this world and make them abundant on this planet.

The Untold Secrets of Sheep

Snapshot_025

Hey gang!

Picture it, second life, 2022, an Irish girl dressed all in green tells her deepest, darkest secrets to a sheep named Shamrock, who vows to keep them for all eternity.

But I Digress!

I had an absolutely splendid time doing the Fab Free St Pattys Hunt (second annual!  woohoo!), and then popping over to the very festive and fun St. Patrick’s Market & Treasure Hunt Event 2022!  Not only is there a hunt (look for the little treasure chests) which is free and no group required, but there is low priced shopping to be had!  Take Mr. Shamrock the sheep here, you can bring him home (and I did!) for only 25L!  I couldn’t resist his handsome face and precious hat (not to mention his uncanny ability to keep secrets!).

Now about that Fab Free Hunt!

I scooped up this stunning little number of a dress at Entice, who has a handful of items to find, all cuter than the next (more cute?).  The entire key is below and all items are free.  This dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy

Everything you can grab at Entice in the hunt is here:

Cre also blogged them here.

All the landmarks and info for the hunt can be found here and you can pick up a hunt HUD for free at our Headquarters.

Lastly, everyone has been stalking the freebies over at Tram, and I am no exception.  My hair in this ensemble is indeed free(no group required!) and I loved the cute retro 60’s look of it!  But you can see more styles shown by Caroline here, here and here!

Now, until next time, may the luck of the Irish be always with ye!

Hey gang

Well, its that time of the year when you get a jump on your new years fitness plan by walking miles at the mall and carrying lots of boxes and bags while you do it.  Whew!  That’s a workout!

I’m back with more Advent goodness and more Arcade fun!  Never mind that I keep confusing those two “A” words in my head. This is from the Arcade, no wait, Advent.  And *this* is from an Advent, no darnit, thats the Arcade!  No matter, I’m having so much fun visiting these places every day, confused brain or not!

Either way there are goodies everywhere for you to get your hands on, so let’s dawdle no further!

This gorgeous purple outfit if from the Advent over at Enchantress.  You do have to join the group, but it is a free join.  The Advent is free and all past gifts are free too just by wearing the group tag.  This cute get up fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Fitmesh

It also comes with a HUD giving you 8 gorgeous color choices.  I found the purple irresistible so I chose it.

The cute lights in my hair are by Limerance at 75L a play via The Arcade and the pose (along with the gifts!) is from Sassy Sweet Poses advent calendar.  It is free on the day with no group needed and past gifts are 50L each.

Hey gang,

As you know, The Arcade is one of those places I’ve been hitting up this week for goodies.  I’m loving all the fun goodies the designers have brought to this round.

This time, I have another Amitie pose for you, this includes the lights that wrap around you, the pose and the star!  So cute!  I feel so festive!  Amitie is only 50L a play and there are so many fun poses you can win.

My second Arcade goodie is this gorgeous winter themed build I am standing in.  This comes from Celeste, where you can find all sorts of magical bliss.  This was a rare and I just lucked out to get it!  There is also an outdoor gazebo version you can win when you play. (I added the trees) This is also only 50L a play.

Speaking of the trees, these are a free gift from 3D trees which has some lovely landscaping goodies.  They are a free gift and there is no group required.

I know there is just so much going on, you barely know where to turn!  But trust me when I say, you will want to go have a peek at The Arcade.  😉

Merry Jolly Everything!

Sweater Weather

pcp_005

Hey gang!

Tis’ me!  I’ve been soooooo busy lately getting the advent started in my shop and helping Juli get the mall ready for Christmas, but I am still here.  Real Life gave me a couple of swift kicks lately too, but it’s nothing I can’t handle.  Especially when I’ve got yummy group gifts to show you!  And most especially when they have pink and Unicats on them, squeee!!!

I’ve been sneaking about the grid here and there and one of my most favorite things I’ve found lately is this super cute *older* gift from Pink Cream Pie.  When you join their group (314L to join), you not only get current gifts, but you get a hoard of older gifts too, which is where I found this beauty.

This cute sweater fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

More soon!  Hope y’all are staying toasty warm!

Cherish Those Nights when the Moon and the Stars aren’t the Brightest Things in the Sky

Amui

I absolutely love fireworks.  That hasn’t always been the case, I was terrified of them as a child.  I remember looking at them and feeling like they were so close they were going to burn me, I was not pleased.  However, once I got past that it has been one long honeymoon for me and fireworks, for as you know, I love all things colorful and sparkly!  Put that up in the night sky and you’ve made me a happy girl!  I don’t like that they scare pets though.  😦  That part makes me sad.

So here in the states, as most of you know, we celebrate Independence Day.  I feel like this year it stands for more than just one kind of independence.  Partly, a coming out of the pandemic (hopefully!) and partly political for some of us.  That makes it a bit extra happy for me this year.

I wanted to find something extra cute to wear to see the fireworks, and I found this adorbs dress at AMUI who has it for free, no group required (the vendor will ask you for 1L and give it right back, some vendors have to do that).  It fits:

  • Altamura
  • BBL
  • Freya
  • Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • V-Tech

It also comes with a HUD so you can choose from 5 festive star spangled patterns for your holiday dress!

Now, my cute little Firework I am holding is from Rabbit House and it is a gacha at SL18B that is only 40L!  They even have wearable fireworks that go off when you walk!  Soooo cute!  SL18B will be there until the 6th so there is still time to hit up this gacha and make yourself festively sparkly!

Happy Independence Day America!

Making Holiday Memories

Holiday Memory Making

In all honesty little moments like this one are my favorite part of the holidays. I find the most joy in things like wrapping presents, and cozying up with my love to watch Christmas movies. It might be an unusual year to say the least, but we can still find moments to enjoy the little things that matter most. Blue and I got into a festive mood recently with the free hunt prizes by Always Design and Park Place on the Peace on Earth Hunt. The merriment was made even better thanks to the 60L Happy Weekend offer from Muniick. Keep reading for all the details, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free!

Always Design

Generally speaking I’m not the sort that wants to wear matching outfits. There’s something about matching pajamas however that make me want them. These matching his and hers footie pajamas are the free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Always Design. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick from a handful of solid colors for the men, and stripes for the ladies. Also, these jammies can be worn by classic and mesh avatars.

Hunt Hint – “I have the best place to watch you.”

Mens Sizes Included: Mi Mado, Adin Bento, Onupup, Slink Male, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Fitmesh Classic + Alpha Layer

Womens Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Park Place

The cuddles are brought to you by Park Place! All silliness aside, the very generous free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Park Place includes this cute PG ottoman, the occasional table, the lamp, and all the little holiday goodies you see sitting on top of the table. Everything is copy so you can rez out multiples, and the lamp can be turned on or off via touch. The ottoman has male and female sit poses, and quite a few cuddles.

Hunt Hint – “You’ll find me in Wilmington.”

Muniick

There’s nothing like the holidays to make a person feel nostalgic. That said, if the 60L Happy Weekend offer by Muniick doesn’t get you right in the Christmas feels, I don’t know what would. This weekend only as part of the Happy Weekend Sale you can get this Christmas Edition of Muniick’s Vintage Television Cabinet set for just 60 linden. The 6 piece set has a console television with11 Christmas and New Years channel options, working model train, sad Christmas tree, Ho Ho Ho blocks, cinnamon stick candles, working Christmas lights, a bonus tv with non holiday themed channels, and a larger version of the model train.
