Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Before the Rain



Before the Rain

As we all know by now I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Medieval Fantasy Hunt items. While wearing the free MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia, I felt transported, inspired by another time and place. I’m pleased my guy was willing to participate and help me capture this moment while showing off the male MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia. I considered writing a little narrative to go with this photo, but I’ll leave that to your imagination and just tell you about the freebies

Kimonos! There’s something majestic about a kimono in my opinion. These gorgeous his and hers matching kimonos are the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize at Secrets of Gaia. I love all the attention to detail in them. The women’s kimono includes matching flats, and hand fans (not shown) and the men’s gift includes the kimono only. 

Female Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Voluptuous

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL) + Alpha Layer 

Hunt Hint: Let me check you out. (The male gift and the female gift are hidden together.)

It’s Sunday Fun Day! I hope everyone is having some fun today. I know I am enjoying the heck out of this Twisted Tale Hunt prize at Entice. First, a little about the Twisted Tale Hunt. This is a 1 linden hunt, and the gift will be available until November 30th. The Entice gift for this hunt is an entire avatar.

You read that right, the Entice prize for the Twisted Tale Hunt is a complete Geisha avatar. This generous prize comes with a skin (makeup is part of the skin), an omega applier for the skin, eyes, hair, a mesh kimono in standard sizes, mesh feet with geta sandals, and a shape. Whether you’re a role player or like me and just like to play dress-up, you need this in your life! Not to mention, the kimono alone is more than worth the 1 linden you’ll spend, it’s a high-low style with gorgeous texture.

Here’s a little hint to help you on your hunt ” While you’re at the subscribo…”. I’ve added a copy of the designer’s ad below, so you can get a good look at the full prize. Happy Hunting!

Evening Fab Free’rs, hope you’ve all had a great day! I spent mine doing all sorts of not fun very mundane real life stuff. It’s not so bad though, because now I get to share pretty accessories with you. 🙂 Tonight’s post is stacked with some really beautiful accessories that I picked up at a new event called Creators Collection Box. At the event you’ll find everything from furniture to clothing, much of which is specially discounted just for the duration of the event. Several of the participating designers also placed out special gifts, simply wear your CCB (Creators Collection Box) tag and pick them up for FREE. Out of the several gifts I picked up, I decided to show my favorites, which include the umbrella, the bow in Pru’s hair, the lovely bouquet of roses, the chest tattoo, and these pretty eyes. Some of the items are also scripted and have poses, so I took some additional photos.

First however, the adorable bow in Pru’s hair is one of the many FREE Gifts at CCB. It comes from Amiable. I positioned it differently than the default to better fit Pru’s hairstyle. Pru is wearing the bow in black, however the gift includes a pink version and a cream colored version.

Umbrella Poses

This Japanese style umbrella is gorgeous, and I had a lot of fun posing with it. The umbrella is the FREE CCB gift from Silvery K. It is very detailed, and includes a menu for changing the pose, opening or closing the umbrella, turning particles on or off, and re-sizing. The above photo shows the 3 poses, two for when the umbrella is open and one for when it is closed. Please note that the pose only changes how you hold the umbrella, not so much your stance. You can also use the touch menu to turn the animation off and on for different poses. I found that if you have a pose that initially “overrides” the umbrella’s hold, turning the umbrella animation off, then back on fixes it so you can use your own ao/sits/stands or whatever and still be holding the umbrella properly.

Old Rose Poses

Another beautifully done absolutely FREE CCB gift with poses are these “Old Rose Bouquets” by RH Design House. There are three colors, red, blue/lavender, and a pretty pink. In addition, the gift comes with two standing poses, and one sitting pose specifically for holding the flowers. I really can’t decide if these roses or the umbrella are my absolute favorites of all the gifts. I sincerely love these flowers though, and intend to leave them out in my home so even when I’m not holding them, just so I can see them.

Tattoo & Eyes

Speaking of seeing, the eyes Pru has in are also a FREE CCB gift. They are by *(OO)*Yuki, and come in a four-pack of pretty variations of the basic eye colors, brown, green, blue, and black. The eyes are mesh and included in the package is an alpha to hide system eyes. Also shown in the above photo yes yet another FREE CCB gift by Chocolate Atelier. The Valentine’s themed chest tattoo comes in color and monotone versions, and includes system layers, as well as appliers for Slink Physique, WowMeh, and Maitreya.

Here are the rest of the details, hehe Enjoy!

Fashion Brand QueenQueen

A very cute dot 🙂 Dot Lane, Girl Reporter (great blog, thank you Dot!) mentioned this new store (new to me) and here we are with Fashion Brand QueenQueen (designer Disco Duranjaya) and amazing freebies.

There are 2 ads on the wall: free Black High Neck (wonderful texture) and free Kimono Tops Green (pretty florals). For the QueenQueen Skirt (comes with belt and stockings!) you have to camp for 10 minutes. To get the matching QueenQueen Free Top (comes with collar) you have to camp for 5 minutes. How cool is this? 15 minutes to get an amazing free dress! And the Black High Neck goes perfect with the skirt and the collar from the Free Top.

I´m wearing Gothic Skin (part of Gothic Party Pack at Fashion Bar PEPPERMINT BLUE), hair is TossMe Black by Bishwear (new freebie instore) and shoes (Ada pumps No 3 in white) are from ADA store.


A GuRL is hunting freebies at KUMAMOTO JAPAN

KUMAMOTO JAPAN GURLAnother tip on the hotline – thank you, LadyDawn Starbrook! – intrigued me and now my inventory is hopelessly overstuffed, finally …. omg!

At first I stopped at GuRL6 to grab the new added dollarbie hair style Kaycee, which comes in many colors as always. To show you this cute style I choosed the dazzle pack with Kaycee in copper, ginger, peachy and shimmery red (in the pics I´m wearing copper). There are several new released styles and styles on sale,too. You should be landing right in front of it.

And then ….. lots of stuff on the freebie wall at KUMAMOTO JAPAN! In the pictures I´m wearing KJ Freebie Dress with midi skirt (also a mini skirt is inside the folder) with matching belt as well as without belt and with the included black top. KJ Free Bracelets are matching perfectly with this dress.

FREE BRACELETS KUMAMOTOPODCAST LIFE FREEBIE KUMAMOTO

The PodcastLife Freebie comes with sweatshirt (jacket layer, shirt layer), skirt and pants. And a disc that makes you dance when you wear it, funny! KJ Free Dress Set comes in blue, with dots and black. I show it in blue and with dots, matched with the free KJ Necklace Heart Silver. KJ Freebie Top with ruffles goes great with the dot pants from the Free Dress Set. Last of all there is the KJ Freebie Dress White and the lovely KJ Flower Set (earrings and necklace) as well as the KJ Freebie Chinadress (comes in gold and black).

Hard to choose a favorite outfit, all clothes and the jewellery are very well done! And I think there is more stuff, check it out carefully. As usual, I was in a hurry and I´m pretty sure I´ve overseen something important….
