Reach for the Stars

spring air_020

I felt your eyes upon me and a stirring in my Soul
I watched the current rise and tide turn for another shore…
A river finds it’s ocean, the light brings darkness to its knees
All that we’ve forgotten and all that we were meant to be…
We are like stars, stars in the sky
The darker this night, the brighter we will shine.

Stars – David Newman

Hey Fab Fam!

A little bit of lyrics from one of my favorite songs.  I’ve been in a funk the last week or so, though I am such an introvert, the pandemic is starting to affect me as well.  It’s a tough feeling to explain, like everything, even things I love to do, right now they all just feel like… meh.  You know?  So many friends I talk to are also feeling this way.  Picture dementors closing in, like there is nothing happy in the world, that’s the feeling.  Perhaps I just need a big old pile of chocolate.  (not like I need an excuse for that  lol)  But since I am trying to be good and *not* eat a pile of chocolate, I try to focus on some positive music, songs that just envelop me in love like a big hug, and of course…. keep reaching for the stars!

So for anyone else who is feeling this way, lets all just close in for a big virtual group hug!  Virtual group hug=no covid so we can have as many as we want and need.  Come on, scooch in… don’t be shy… everyone gather round, ok, ready!  BIG GROUP HUG annnnnnnnd SQUEEZE!!!!!!  Ahhhhh doesn’t that feel better?  You are not alone!  Yeah I need to remember this too.

So today gang, as I reach for those stars (Thanks to Fluffy Stuff for providing us with little pastel twinkly stars for our in world), I’m looking fashionable in this very pretty free group gift from Look at Me.  Group is free to join as well which makes this top and pants absolutely free!  This outfit comes in:

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep reaching for those stars fab fam, if we collect enough we can create brighter days!

Rise and Shine Fab Fam!

It’s Sundayyyyyy!  You know what that means!  It means it is #sokawaiisundays!  Woot!  It also means that you only have TODAY to scoop up these deals so no dillying… or dallying!  Y’all just better RUN!

I ran and I scored this adorbs dress from ALTAIR (gosh I love their stuff!), which made me feel like a kawaii snow white!  Of course to match the cute little stars on their dress I had to grab the cute Moon Headband from Just Yaska (ok, so I admit I am a fiend for anything celestial themed… sun, moon, stars… Saturn!  OMG Saturn!!!!  LOL  You know we Fab Free folks can be obsessive right? (who us????) Oh but we do so love what we love!).  Both items are 65L each, so I spent a whopping 130L total for such cuteness.  My oh my!  *fans self* I may just faint!

The dress comes in Maitreya size and includes a choice of cute hairbows (but I opted for the headband for this photo, obv.) and also a shirtless version of the dress which turns it into a cute summer spaghetti strap dress.   The super fab headband is a fatpack and comes with a HUD that has five choices each for the moon and star, the little stars and the headband itself.

There are dozens of goodies for 65L (see the gallery here) and don’t forget the free skin from Velour (which I LOVE and have been using lately with my Lelutka Evo Nova head, including this photo) that is a #sokawaiisundays gift.

See you next time gang, when I won’t be wearing the stars but reaching for them in a sweet group gift!

Starry eyed & Fancy free at home!

Sunshine and Seashells

Hey fab fam!

Oh boy!  Few things get me as excited as the thought of sunnier, warmer weather, so this new Fab Free gift from MOoH! has got me super excited!  I even headed off to the beach for a bit of fantasy time and dreaming I was on vacay!  Ahhhhh, the sight, sound and smells of the ocean.  Bliss!  Not to mention how super adorbs this bikini is, oh my gosh!!!!!

It not only comes in the pattern I am wearing (duh.  lol) plus it has a HUD with a total of ten ultra cute and cheery patterns!  I didn’t know *which* to pick!  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Why wait until summer when you can enjoy the beach in world *right now* and wearing this cute “kini!  Covid be damned!  We can take our vacations anyway!  Ha!  and with MOoH!‘s help, we are gonna look hella cute while doing it!

That’s not all!  See the awesome shell necklace?  That’s a group gift from ANTAYA(Group is only 50L to join and they have a wall of gorgeous group gifts!  Including one of my favorites that I previously blogged here.)  It too comes with a HUD so you can match it right up, choosing from 6 shell colors and three chain colors!  As I like to say, you can’t beat that with a stick!!  😀

Until next time fabbies!

Stay sunny!

Hey fab fam!

Tomorrow is the second day of the weekend and that means sokawaiisundays!  I love kawaii so I have been really enjoying this.  Lots of stores with items set to only 65L!  This week I found this super cute eye shadow and lipstick at Gloom.  It’s got glitter and sparkles galore!  The lips have little stars!  Squeee!  You get a fat pack of colors for each 15 colors in the lips and 7 for the eye shadow.  The eye shadow works for Lelutka and Genus and the lips with for Lelutka.  Each pack is 65L and as you can see its really a great deal!  It’s just for a day gang so don’t dilly dally!  😀

Sparkling til next time!

Walking on Air!

ldr_009

Hey fab fam!

I’ve been thinking (and that is always dangerous!), wouldn’t it be odd (and sometimes disconcerting…and sometimes really cool!) if we could do the things we can do in second life, in real life?  Like… change your hair, your face, your body…on a whim!  Wicked cool.  Possibly even wickeder cooler… teleporting!  With my partner and best friend on the opposite side of the rl planet, that is something we both wish for!  I know some people would like the ability to fly.  I am not one of those people.  lol  This chickie is chicken and does NOT fancy heights!

Now, on the flip side of all that comes the disconcerting….

One time when I was a noob I came home and everything was gone, my house, all my belongings, everything.  It would not be fun to lose everything you own, plus your house in real life!  You get home and OMG where’s my house???  It was here when I left!  OK, so another scenario… you get dressed, go out and you can see your clothes but no one else can.  !!!!!!  You turn into a red cloud!  You walk off a platform and fall down through the sky.  Or you live on a platform in the sky and sometimes people fly by.  Or now with mesh bodies, other people see you as a weird mix of body parts floating around and clothes floating around.  Awkward!!!  One last one…. imagine going to the store in rl and having to wait for everything to rez cause all you see is grey!  That’s one issue I’m glad not to have!  lol

In second life we can be anything we want to, go anyplace we want to (mostly!), it can be like a waking dream.  Just like real life, it can get expensive!  Thank goodness for the fab free blog where you can find amazing free and low priced goodies for your second life!  On that note… here’s the next one for you!

My outfit today is a super cute group gift from Loud Rebel Design.  Their group is free to join.  I felt so cute wearing it that it had me walking on air!  Or very nearly walking on air.  There are several trends right now I am finding super cute and jumpsuits is one of them.   So thanks to LRD for this group gift!

This jumpsuit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Stay safe and reach for the stars fab fam!

Sparkle and Shine!

athena_011

Hey fab gang!

I’ve got one more for you from Shop & Hop Valentine’s edition, mainly because I couldn’t resist sharing with you this absolutely *stunning* gown from Son!a-Edge.  I truly feel like royalty when I wear this, sort of an ethereal kind of queen!  This dress literally reflects the light and has some magic of it’s own that gives it a sort of iridescent glimmer (I won’t spoil those little extras here for you, you will have to go get one of your own!  But I will spill the beans and say it comes with a materials HUD!)  The photo above is straight out of sl, no filters (just some film grain, and a crop!) at all, so this is seeing the dress do it’s own thing!  Here’s another photo, closer up so you can see some of the details:

athena_006

Again, you can see the sun reflecting on the right hand side of the dress.  well, sl sun, you know.  lol  And you do have to have your graphics set to advanced lighting, but so well worth it.  Stunning stunning stunning!!  Again, only film grain and cropping for this pic, no filters, nothing fancy done by me.  The dress stands for itself!

Now let me stop drooling for a moment and give you the specifics!  This dress is a free gift at Shop & Hop (runs until 2.17), no group necessary!  It fits the following sizes:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

I think with this I have found my outfit for any Valentine’s day dancing I may get to do.  😉  It will look amazing in those couples pics!

Stay safe and magical gang!

Oh Where Oh Where has Cupid Gone?

blasphemic_006

Hey fab gang!

I’ve been all over the grid recently helping to look for cupid in the Where’s Cupid Hunt. This is a 1L hunt and runs until Feb 14. While I didn’t actually *find* cupid (there’s still time!), I did find some awesome hunt gifts and have a sneak peek at three of them for you!

Too Sassy for You!

Blasphemic has this cute top in my photo above waiting for you in the hunt.  The saying on the shirt “Too Sassy for you!” resonated with me, brat that I am.  It’s got a pattern of open rips in the back and you can pair it nicely with jeans, short, skirt, anything.  I paired it with these jeans and ready to go! It comes in one size, fitted mesh and I’m wearing it over Maitreya in the picture.  I had no issues.

Never Stop Dreaming

indig_003

This absolutely adorable dress is made by Tazz for Indigenous.  It comes with a HUD giving you a choice of ten gorgeous colors that really pop!  It is definitely a dreamworthy dress!

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Lastly but Definitely not Least!

ari pari_005

Lastly I have for you, two hunt prizes.  First this adorable outfit from Ari-Pari, love the springtime colors!  It comes with a HUD that gives you six texture/color choices for each of the top and bottom.

It comes in

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

The cute Valentine-y backdrop is also a hunt prize, it’s from NinaX.  It’s low prim and very pretty.

Love is in the Air

Love is in the air

G’day fab fam!

Love is in the air, my friends!  What with so many hunts revolving around love and Valentine’s and cupids!  But in February, that is to be expected!  Of course we all know what hunts mean… free or nearly free goodies!  Lots of them!  For instance, I found this adorable outfit in the Love Hunt (1L hunt ends 2.28) from Applique’ Chic.  It comes with a HUD for the skirt which includes 6 really pretty color choices.  I had a difficult time deciding!

Both top and skirt come in these sizes:

  • Ocacin
  • Volumptuous
  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Now, I know from experience that we rarely give ourselves enough love.  You are the only one who has always been with you no matter what, and you are *amazing* whether you realize it or not!  So I have an assignment for y’all tonight… Go love yourself, BIG TIME!  You know what you need and what makes you happy, so go do that!  And in case no one has told you today fab fam, I love you and YOU matter!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter_006Just Tara and I and a mug of hot chocolate taking a stroll through the snow at dusk.  Tara loves the snow.  Me, not so much.  I get cold very quickly so I do much prefer sl snow.  I do however, *always* love a nice yummy steaming cup of hot chocolate!  I don’t drink coffee at all, and only enjoy herbal tea when the mood strikes me, but being the big kid I am, nothing warms me like a chocolate-y mug of goodness!

I got this cozy jacket and scarf combo at Vips Creations, it’s a group gift and her group is only 2L to join!  The scarf is separate from the jacket and so you can wear it without the scarf if you so choose!  She has numerous group gifts available.

The jacket and scarf come in:

  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

The boots are a group gift from HH (Hilly Haalan), the group is free to join and they have an entire room of group gifts for you to grab!  The boots come in:
