Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

Easter Margaritas, Anyone?

Easter Margaritas, anyone?

Hey Fab Free! I have another set to share from you from The Bunny Hop Hunt! And this one includes some free alcohol, so it’s time to start drinking and have some fun!

Be Beautiful Dirty, and Rich this Easter

Everything I am wearing are pieces of the hunt from Beautiful Dirty Rich at the The Bunny Hop Hunt. The Omega and BOM Fishnets are free, but the boots, jacket and top each have a small hunt fee between 10 and 25 linden each. I just adore this outfit! It comes with a colour and pattern change hud for each item and it’s just adorable overall.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Legacy

*B.D.R.* Margarita - Hunt Key

…And it’s time to drink again

There’s nothing like drinking, alcohol and cocktails during a quarantine, and the Easter holiday weekend is just another excuse to get sauced! This free egg is part of the hunt, and it double functions as a wearable margarita drink. It comes with a colour change HUD with many patterns. It’s time to drink in style!

You have until April 14th (tomorrow) to grab this set and these two freebies at The Bunny Hop Hunt!

Happy Easter, Fab Free!

Over It


Over It

Finally the weather outside made me want to put on a jacket rather than lift my hair off the back of my neck. It has been an unusually cool day, even for September. Love and Aline may be clinging to summer, but I don’t mind telling you I’m over it. Give me crisp cool air, fall leaves, bonfires, and all the deliciousness that summer is just too hot for. I also love a good fall wardrobe which wouldn’t be complete without a good jacket. The jacket I’m wearing is part of a group gift newly available at Star Sugar. While picking up my new favorite jacket, I also found a handful of free gifts at Star Sugar, one of which was this cute start studded bag. Needless to say I couldn’t resist. For more about each of these fantastic finds, keep reading, or you can scroll to the credits.

Star Sugar

First, the initial thing that drew me to this jacket by Star Sugar were the little bats. I love them! That said, the jacket is a group gift at Star Sugar, along with a matching skirt which I did not wear. The Jacket comes in several pastel colors, all with black trim and little black bats around the bottom. The skirt and jacket are fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Star Sugar group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available including this one recently blogged by Juli. Below is a copy of the vendor photo so you can see the cute buttoned skirt and the sweet pastel colors the jacket comes in.

Babe Fit

As I mentioned, there are several free gifts that do not require a group tag at Star Sugar. The gift that caught my eye the most was this cool little star studded bag. This freebie has a hold pose that actually worked with my mixed priority AO. Additionally the free bag comes in the black version shown, as well as yellow, blue, green, pink, and white. Definitely pick this one up!

Here is What I am Wearing:

Hair – TRUTH Alias – Fatpack – Current VIP Gift *Originally Shown Here
Head – Catwa Koura

Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible

I’m having another one of those flashbacks to the 80’s.  This time it’s the “Addicted to Love” video by Robert Palmer.  You know, the girls with the short hair, the super red lips and legs that stretch into next week.  I came up with my own version with some great group gifts!

Cranking it Up

I wandered about, as I usually do, and found my way to Cranked.  There I came upon a wall of free group gifts, one of which was this little cropped jacket which I think I really could wear with loads of different things.  I highly enjoy the buckles, and the fact that it also comes with an HUD with several different colour options!  You can grab this jacket (as well as a bunch of other gifts) just by clicking on the vendor and paying 0L – no group join required!

Sizes

  • XXS – L With an Alpha
  • Physique

The Body Electric

My ever-growing collection of bodysuits was rather pleased when I came upon this group gift at MMC.  They have a whole bunch of exceedingly well-priced pieces of lingerie!  This one comes with an applier for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega.  I joined the group for 1L, then paid the vendor 1L for the gift – I’d say 2L is a great deal for this pretty outfit!

Ok, I’m going back to my music videos again – I think I’ve got to perfect the blank looks from the Robert Palmer one!

A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I just had to…

Stuck_002

I just had to try it…

… just to see if it really happened like in the movies. Yup. It does. Stuck! But that’s okay. A friendly passer-by helped me out with a bit of water from their water bottle and all was well in the world again. (That really does unstick you!)

Sales!

Speaking of stuck, since I was stuck inside with all this cold weather I decided to check out some sales. I heard that Vision had a sale on their gift cards (currently 50% off gift cards until the 30th) and was tempted enough to mosey on down to the store. While I was there, I discovered that if I joined their VIP group for 250L, I would be rewarded with 100L of in-store credit each month on the 1st. This is cumulative, plus you get access to the lucky letter boards.

So I got my in-store credit, and saved that up. In just less than a week I’ll be able to get another 100L on January 1st! So now is the perfect time to join the VIP group. And then I hit the lucky letter boards…

Getting lucky…

I got lucky at Vision pretty quick as my letter came up and I snagged the jacket and top you see in the picture. The jacket and top are separate so you could mix and match if  you want which is nice.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.
