Breathing Space

Breathing Space_001

Sometimes we all need a little breathing space. A moment of quiet zen to take a deep breath, visualize our safe place, and find inner peace. My “hunting buddy” took me to a little sim spot called La Vie and I went inside one of the little buildings and thought ahhhh this is breathing space. It was just that little corner where you could take space for yourself and relax!

Where it started.

I found this skirt… at Treze. It’s a new-to-me store and I happened upon this gift skirt there. The group is free to join and then you can pick up the skirt for free. It comes in several sizes in this lovely little print. A Maitreya size was not included, however I found that the Slink Physique size fit my mesh body perfectly. And for the price of free, it’s worth picking this pretty skirt up, to try on the sizes and see if one of the sizes will work for you!

Skirt sizes available:

  • Classic XXS + M
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Slink Physique
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

The right shirt…

I needed just the right shirt to go with this gift. I was hunting through my inventory when my friend showed me a picture of a gift shirt at Kib and I thought whoah, that’s it! Just the shirt I need! The free gift “cute shirt” at Kib is a free gift with your free group join and comes in both grey and pink (I’m sporting the pink in the picture above. You’ll also get several mesh sizes for this cute as a bug shirt as well!

Shirt sizes available:

  • Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

Brains are Sexy

Brains are Sexy

Happy Halloween, Fabulouses!

I thought I’d take a few minutes to catch my breath before the craziness starts tonight. My sweet, little friend is having such a peaceful snooze… I’m starting to feel the need for a nap myself!

But before I nod off, let me tell you about this cute Halloween gift.

Braaaaaaiiins… are sexy

At least, that’s what my shirt says! 😀

New-to-me store Quinnty’s has set out this tank top and denim jacket duo as a Halloween gift. They can be worn as separate items or as a set, as I’m doing here.

Tons of sizes are included in the folder:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with an alpha for each (so you can wear them separately)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Curvy and Fine (I don’t know which body those go to!)

The Quinnty’s in-world group is only 50L to join, and several other gifts are just waiting for you to pick them up. The store is also decked out in Halloween decor, so be sure to stop by and check it out.

Have a fun Halloween tonight, and stay safe! 🙂

Ice Cream Man

Ice Cream Man

 

♫ I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
Oh my my, I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy ♫

Redecorating with 31 favors…

While I was on “leave”, It seems that Love redecorated the FabFree Info Hub. She added a quaint little ice cream bar on the side of the building. If I wasn’t on a diet (stupid doctors), I’d be eating the ice cream instead of serving it.

Basic Black(berry)…

Today’s outfit is a L’Homme Magazine group gift located at KIB Designs. The L’Homme Pants and Shirt Outfit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a very business or semi-formal look. I’m putting this outfit in my closet rotation.

Wait… fruit flavored ice cream is still fruit, right?

Eclipse

Eclipse_001

I was in the path of the Solar Eclipse yesterday, and was lucky enough to have a chance to view it because my local library had a viewing event and was providing free eclipse glasses for individuals to check out for 15 minute intervals. By lucky chance, I was able to check out my 15 minutes at the peak of the eclipse and see it in all its glory. It was an amazing sight!

A few creators have made gifts that seem to commemorate the event and it seemed appropriate to show them off!

Mandala…

Kib Designs is giving away a free Mandala dress (the group is free to join) if you stop by their main-store. The Mandala has come to represent or be a general generic term for any diagram, chart, or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos… a microcosm of the universe. It seems an appropriate and beautiful gift at the moment given the impact of the solar eclipse on so many people as they rushed to get to see it.

Dress sizes available:

  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Eclipse_002

August Eclipse 2017

Chop Zuey was not to be outdone as far as gifts, and the creator has made a special texture change set of jewelry, specifically to commemorate the event, called “August Eclipse.”

There are two gifts… the diadem is a free to all gift and is fully customizable and texture change. You can pick it up in the free to all gift section by buying it for 0L.

There is also a Chop Zuey group gift, which is the jewelry set, in the group gift section. This set includes the choker, earrings, and bracelets, all texture change just like the diadem. The group is 350L to join, but Chop Zuey sets out frequent gifts for both men and women, making the group well worth joining.

Backside

Snapshot_001In my days as a skateboarder, they used to call me “Backside” because the 180 backside was my best trick…  Ok…  truth be told, I had no tricks and they called me “Backside” because that’s where I always landed in attempts.  These fun skater poses by [west end] are currently being featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and reminded me of the fun I used to have “trying to skateboard”!

The Evolution of a Hipster

Hipster 1

A box and a box of smokes…

Serena messaged me and told me I was cray cray if I didn’t get down to The Hipster Fair as there were plenty of gifts to be had (and even a few gifts for guys). I popped on over and boy was it … PINK! Once I got used to the color scheme, I started going from store to store looking for the green mustaches for the guy gifts. I managed to find a few dollar gifts to make a couple of amazeball hipster looks to show you. The NIDOLO XIV Outfit can be picked up at the ARTIZANA booth for just $1L. This three-piece outfit consists of the mesh suit pants, mesh shirt w/ tie and mesh suit vest. The look is versatile as the vest and shirt can be worn separately. My Hipster Glasses are a $1L gift from KIB Designs. They come in both male and female versions and can be worn on your face or on the top of your head.

Tired of Walkman around…

I also found the Adam Sweater at the Trashed booth. This $1L gift comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a great casual look. The Classic Spring Camo Sneakers by The Man Cave is a FabFree goup gift that was previously shown [HERE]. My poses are by Image Essentials. The Evolution of a Hipster poses can be had at the Hipster Fair out of a gacha machine for just $50L per turn. You won’t be devo ‘cos you’re heaps povo with theses cheap gifts.

Strangelove

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:
