Love in the 80’s

Love in the 80's

I’m super ready for all things V-Day.  Not because of romance and all that stuff – but just because the pink and red and hearts and candy put me in a good mood in the depths of winter.  I don’t necessarily need a bouquet of flowers and a declaration of undying love (though that’s nice too) to enjoy the riotous pink of Valentine’s Day.

Feelin’ Fruity

Tooty Fruity’s group is still free to join for just a few more days, so get in now before the price goes back up.  I grabbed these cool heels that lace all the way up my legs for free just by activating my tag (and there are loads of colours in the HUD).  There are a bunch of lucky boards and MM boards too, as well as the January group gift to pick up, so don’t sleep on this one!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Back to Witchwood

As Allison told you earlier today, Petite Mort & Oubliette are currently hosting one of their fun hunts, where every item is priced at 20L or less.  I couldn’t resist the jacket Allison showed us, though I went in a sorta crazy 80’s direction with the hot pink tube dress (10L) and the heart-shaped glasses (10L).  There are loads of different items on this hunt, so you can mix and match a look pretty easily.  I’m a sucker for that kind of thing!  The Witchwood Valentine’s Day Hunt is running until February 14th!

Dress Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

 

Hearts and Kisses in your direction!

Fiddle Dee Dee

Belle Epoque Teleport hub GG_001

“Oh, dear! My stays are so tight, I’ll never ger through the day without belching!” I’m channeling Scarlett O’Hara today. Father has managed to invite most of the wealthy single men to a barbeque at Tara. Fiddle-dee! My frock covers more of me than I’d prefer but I do have to protect my skin to keep from getting freckled. Luckily I heard about this TeleportHub.com group gift at Belle Epoque. Let me tell you all about it.

You will have to wear the TeleportHub.com group ($10L join fee) tag to snag this one ladies. When you land at Belle Epoque & enter the building turn right. The gift is located on the right side of the wall. You can’t miss it. The Mademoiselle Caroline dress is sized for Maitreya only and comes with this one texture. I like the texture  as it looks oriental in nature. I don’t think Scarlett had a chance to wear anything Asian but I’m pretty sure she would have loved it too.

My parasol (every Southern Belle needs one) is one of the $10L gifts you can find on the Belle Epoque New Year Hunt. The hunt object is a golden 2023 and they are fairly easy to find. You can see the hunt key on the front windows of the store. The hunt runs until January 31.

That’s my quickie for today gang!

Peace, 

Cre

Jungle Peace

Belle Epoque NYH #2 002_001

I’m searching for peace in a jungle. Not sure I can find peace there but I know I can find solitude. It probably won’t be quiet either, come to think of it. Why the hell am I here? It’s not like I’m hunting down Tarzan or anything like that. Somehow it made sense for a brief moment. While many of you are tightly held in the grip of frigid winter weather going to a jungle sounds like a good plan. I’ve never heard of anyone freezing in a jungle. Have you?

It’s a New Year

Belle Epoque is at it again with another store hunt. That’s always great news. You don’t need the store group to participate in the New Year’s Hunt and each item costs $10L. I’ve got the totally stunning Jemina dress (#2 on the hunt key below) on today. If you’re a regular reader you know that I love animal prints. While I didn’t grab every item on the hunt this one called out to me. I’m just happy the dress ties are done already. Otherwise I’d have to be a contortionist to tie them all. Maybe searching for Tarzan isn’t such a bad plan. I bet Jane never wore a dress like this. Anyhoo, Jemina is sized for Ebody, Legacy, and Maitreya.

I’ve included a hunt key below so you can see what the prizes are.

Belle Epoque New Year Hunt #NYH Key

I Got New Shoes Too!

The other day one of our FabFree members put out a call in group chat for folks to slap the MM boards & check the lucky letters at Tooty Fruity. It was a fruitful trip as I slapped them all and got several cool items from both after joining the free group. I’m wearing one of the items today; the Zori heels. They fit Belleza, Legacy, & Maitreya. Included is an eight texture/color change hud.

That’s it for now dear readers!

Well Hello, Dave…

My nails are free on the Marketplace. They include Omega Appliers. Every item on Hello Dave’s Marketplace Store is currently free, so pick them up while you still can! You will have an awesome manicure for any occasion. There are over 800 free sets of nails so it does take a while to grab them all for free. Most of their nails work if you have Omega installed into your body, so they may not work with some of the newer bodies that are BOM only.

Sizes Included

  • Omega

That’s all for now, FabFree!

News Flash: Intrepid Traveler Returns for the Festivities

le'la Sweety outfit 12-14-2022 - 002_001

I am mostly an armchair traveler. However I’ve been mostly absent from the grid for the past several weeks because I took a long overdue vacation with friends in California’s Central Valley. We traveled just about every day. If you ever wondered where a great deal of our produce and nuts are grown you can find it in the fertile soil of the valley.

I felt like an intrepid explorer while exploring the Lost Coast. It has been on my bucket list for years now. There exists only  one road with many, many potholes and bumps that provides you with stunning vistas of the coast line with its’ offshore rocks and huge breaking waves. When the Pacific Coast Highway was being built the King’s Mountain Range could not be tamed forcing the highway inland. hence the moniker “The Lost Coast”.

Sparkle Brightly

Don’t know about you but I am loving all the great gifts around the grid I picked up at shopping events, advent calendars, and hunts. Today I’m sparkling like a fine champagne in my festive Sweety dress from Le’ La. It is tastefully decorated with several Christmas textures. A Santa Hat is included. You can pick it up for $1L at the store for The Fashion Loft Treats and Sweets 2022 Holiday Event. It’s a shopping event combined with gifts. Pick up the event HUD at TFL Headquarters.

Sizes

  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy, Perky, & Perky Petite
  • Kups, Kupra B & O
  • SLink Hourglass
  • Reborn

EEKKK Christmas Hair

This fab hairstyle from Ali & Allie was $99 for The Fashion Loft Treats and Sweets 2022 Holiday Event. Can you say Festive?? The Jupiter updo comes with peppermint canes and red garland!! It’s absolutely perfect so I HAD to get it! I completed my look with boots and glasses from the Christmas Barbie Outfit by Darkness. You can find it in the Darkness MP store for $1L.

Now you can hit all those places with gifts and get yourself looking festive.

Xmas is Here

Xmas Is Here

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… yes, maybe for some Xmas starts after Cyber Monday but for me it starts today because technically Black Friday is over. Bring on the Xmas season! There are only 29 days until Christmas and the countdown is on! I put together a fun Christmas-y look today to bring in everyone’s favourite season. Well, it’s my favourite season this year, anyways,  because looking forward to Christmas and spending quality time with family is giving me something positive to look forward to and I really need that this year.

A Lovely Dress

First off, I have a great prize from the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt to share with you all. My dress is the prize from Vips Creations. It costs 5L and it includes a HUD of floral prints and plain colours including white, black, red, pink, and magenta.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Lara & Petite
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya Venus, Isis & Freya

Get it Quick

I debated mentioning this, as this one is a very limited-time offer that may poof, so get it soon. My eyeshadow and lipstick come from a full set of applier makeup that is currently only 1L at Orsy Event.  This gift is from Opulein and it includes a full pack of makeup with different colour options. It’s stunning. The event is supposed to be over, but the 1L gift is still available. Grab it while you can as well as the other dollarbies on the wall before they disappear for good!

Sizes Included

  • Lelutka EvoX

Xmas Is Here II

Oh Christmas Trees…

And now for some cute Xmas decor to bring in the Christmas season. The awesome wood Christmas trees shown in my scene today are from Noveny, a designer that always has creative decor available.

  • The large wood tree with snowflakes stenciled on it and a rusty gold star is their latest FabFree group gift. The Fabulously Free in SL group is ALWAYS free to join.
  • The blue, green, and red flat wooden trees are the latest group gift at Noveny. Their store group currently costs 30L to join.

Bring on the Christmas fun!

Give Me Anything But Pumpkin Spice

Bold Llama Hate Pumpkin Spice 2_001

Here’s a Sunday quickie to brighten your day. Do you remember Aline’s post about pumpkin spice?  I found an answer to her post at The Bold Llama while indulging in a bit of hunting, Evil Bunny Productions The Jerky Turkey 12 Hunt is currently running until November 30th, There are 48 stops on the hunt and the prizes are pretty cool. You’re searching for an orange feather. Pay $1L to get the item at each store. I had a lot of fun doing the hunt and I hope you do also.

Keep My Pumpkins & Spice Separate, Please

There are enough people in the world who love pumpkin spice so they don’t need me. I recently accidentally bought a bottle of pumpkin spice coffee creamer thinking it was it was peppermint mocha. Hey! the bottle looked the same. Should have worn my glasses & read the label. I know that it’s been a huge hit since someone decided to put it into coffee. Someone can have my share.

I got so excited when I saw this tee shirt was a hunt prize! It proclaims to the world that I am not in that number. The Bold Llama has the I Hate Pumpkin Spice tank top. Perfect! The texture is another awesome piece of graphic art. I have acquired quite a few tees created by Mikki McLain, over the years and I love them all. To me they let me show my thoughts & feelings. I always have fun wearing one of these.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Standard sizes xs – xl

That’s my quote for today! : D

Finding Fall

Max Magic FF FLH 1_001

Yay! Friday is here! Autumn is falling upon us down here in the southern U.S. The gods of weather have decided to send some arctic winds  & cold swooping down upon us. I guess that means bikini  beach days are over. I am so happy I can keep beaching it in SL, I also found this group of goats. I wonder if they know yoga?

A Walk in the Orchard

After doing a bit of hunting I needed a break. I donned my warm comfy outfit and and headed out to find an apple orchard. Luckily Max Magic has this great casual ensemble you can pick up on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt for a total of $10L ($5L each for top and jeans). There is a matching outfit for the guys also. Drag your man along with you.

The patchwork on the jeans makes me think of colder days. And the cropped hoodie is too cute with a texture of a cauldron and the words “Leaky Cauldron” on the front. There are huds for the top & jeans.

Sizes:

Women

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

Feeling Cute

Glitterati FF FLH 7_001

Hello! Today I will show you gifts from the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt and the latest round of Cosmopolitan. All of the recent events with gifts and great sales have been keeping me busy. I am always awed by the skills and generosity  of SL’s creators. I am always thankful for gifts. In the near (or far) future I need to engage in everyone’s favorite task in SL – making peace with my inventory. Wish me luck with that task!

Another Great FabFree Hunt

Glitterati by Sapphire and Stunner Originals are only two of he many stores participating in the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt.

Today I’m wearing a free outfit from Glitterati by Sapphire. It includes the top and shorts and is sized for:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique

Stunner Originals contribution is a sweet set of lipsticks. Sky comes with an applier HUD for Lelutka Exo X. There are 12 lovely shades to choose from. It’s priced at $5 so it’s a pretty awesome deal. If you own an Evo X head you definitely want to get it.

One of this month’s free group gifts at Cosmopolitan is the Sigma Key Earrings. There are 2 color options: gold or silver. You do have to join the free Cosmopolitan group. I know I’ll wear these often.

Hope today is the start of a great weekend for you. Sorry for the short post; my brain is on vacation : )
