A Little Nonsense Now and Then

A Little Nonsense Now and Then

I know what you’re thinking.  Why is Aline standing in a bathroom that has a pile of pink fruit in it?  Well, you seem to think that I know what’s going around here, and that’s kinda cute.  The real question is, where did I get my super awesome outfit from?

A Little Vinyl

My gorgeous (and daringly cut) dress is a free group gift by Vinyl that I picked up over at Access.  There are a few gifts to grab there if you join their group for free.  I quite enjoy this dress by Vinyl that is all business in the front, but a massive party in the back! (ha!) It comes with an HUD to change to a myriad of colours to suit all your needs.  Cool!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I’m Feeling Pr!tty

The good people over at Pr!tty may have been quiet over the last little while, but they recently put out a new group gift that can be found in group notices.  Evvie is a long, windswept concoction in a gorgeous cotton candy shade of pink.  I love it!  Check for another little gift in notices as well!  The Pr!tty group is 200 Lindens to join at this time. (The links I’ve provided here will give you the group profile!)

What do you think? Is this fruit safe to eat?

This is the “Lumi” dress and it comes in five color combos each of which are only 10L on the Cart! Even if you bought one in each color… you’d still be saving tons.

Group Gifts that is! I’m also showing off the latest free Group Gift from Magika Hair. This is “Penelope” and isn’t it sweet?

This gift comes with a full fatpack of colors and it is compatible with the Group Only palette group members received a few months ago. Magika’s Group is only 150L to join, very reasonable considering how much members get.

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a free gift you can pick up just for being members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  It’s a super cute complete outfit that will have you all dressed up for one of my favorite winter time outdoor activities – ice skating.

‘Tis the Season…

The Search for Hot Chocolate

The Hunt for Hot Chocolate

I’m just heading out into the woods to find a cute little place to get a hot chocolate.  I dunno, maybe it’s a skiing thing…I don’t really know how this whole “great outdoors” thing works.  Lucky for me, in SL it is completely normal to show up at a cabin in the woods to get a hot drink while wearing a rather skimpy little dress.  What, it’s plausible!

A Chill Wind

It may be chilly out, but I need to look absolutely adorable for all the upcoming festivities.  I found my sweet top and skirt combo (sized for Maitreya bodies) over at Adorsy.  You can wear the top and skirt separately, and there are lots of different colour options and combinations in the HUD, so you can totally make this outfit your own.  To grab this gift, join the Adorsy group for free, pay the vendor 1L (which it will return to you) and it’s all yours! (There are a bunch of other pretty gifts there too!).

Face Up to it

If you head over to Shiny Stuffs, you will be able to pick up my lovely makeup look for absolutely free!  I got my sparkly red lipstick (so festive!) and my snowflake-laden eyelashes just by paying the vendors in the middle of the room 0L.  These gifts come with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and LAQ.

Hope you find a cozy spot to curl up, in SL or in RL!

Kissmas Time is Here

Kissmass Time is Here

The idea of the Mistletoe is one that I find rather appealing.  I mean, a plant that causes people to kiss if they pass underneath it?  How romantic (and utterly bizarre) is that?  You guys know me, if something is even slightly quirky I get a little bit overexcited about it.  I found a great (and nontypical) look for your holiday parties!

The Queen of all You’ve Seen

My sultry red bodysuit is a free group gift under the Christmas Tree over at Queenz!  I love the cutouts and velvety finish of it, as well as the added belly chain.  It’s different and festive all at the same time.  There are a couple of gifts under the tree at Queenz, so join their group for free and pick up all the delightful goodies!

  • Ebody Curvy

Carry it with You

Mistletoe that follows me around?  I can’t say “YES” fast enough!  I got my super cute headband over at Gable.  I joined their group for free and now I’ve got people making pouty lips at me wherever I go!  I haven’t decided if this is a blessing or a curse yet, but I look super adorable so I’m going with blessing for now.  Head on over to Gable and grab yours!

Happy Kissmas!

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Christmas Lights All Over Town

The Lights Have a Mind of Their Own

The pupster and I picked up a couple of more hunt items that really got me into the holiday spirit.  I was even motivated to dig out the box of Christmas lights and start decorating.  Notice I said “start.”  Those string lights must have spent all summer knotting themselves up inside their storage container.  Last year, when I put them away, they were neatly coiled.  I don’t know what happened… all I can say is those things have a mind of their own.  It took quite awhile to get the whole mess untangled.  Well, at least I had my wrap top and ribbon choker to keep me looking beautiful in the midst of the snarled jumble.

The Colors of the Season

I just love the bright contrast between red and green in my new Rhea Wrap Top that I picked up over at [QE] Designs.  This fabulous prize from The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt set me back just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  I’m all about hunting down delicious gingerbread cookies (yum!), and when I can scoop up budget friendly goodies as well as cookies, you can count me in!  Featuring long sleeves, a cropped hemline and a curve-hugging wrapped design, this little number is full of holiday cheer.  The package also includes a texture change HUD, which enables you to select a cotton or knit fabric as well as to customize the color on each half of the shirt.  You can have one side red and the other green as I have done, or you can have a solid green or solid red color scheme.  It’s great to have options!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Jingle Belles

My Jingle Belle necklace from Cog and Fleur offered the chipper tinkling of a trio of jingle bells as I struggled to unravel the stubborn string of lights.  The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt gift also included a coordinating pair of earrings that I opted not to wear for my photo.  This bauble set will provide the ideal finishing touch for your outfits throughout the holiday season.  To add this jewelry set to your collection, all you have to do is teleport to the shop, locate the cookie concealed inside, and pay one Linden dollar.

Now that I’ve finally unscrambled the unruly lights, I’d better finish what I started and get to work hanging them up.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Trimming the Tree

trimming the tree

A little more sparkle for the tree, don’t you think? More lights and ornaments? … absolutely! After all that gift shopping I did I need the tree to be just as spectacular. Okay… I admit… I may be just a little Christmas Crazy. OCD = Obsessive Christmas Decorating!

Spruced Up

I found this lovely dress from Una at the Epiphany Holiday Round for just 75L per play. I love the spruce green and the short but modest style. The ‘Mariena’ gacha features this short dress in six colors, a long dress, a cardigan and the short dress wrapped in Christmas lights is the Rare.

You Can Never Be Too Ready

You Can Never Be Too Ready

I know it’s a bit early to be peeking under the Christmas tree while in my pyjamas, but getting a bit of practice in never hurt, now did it?  I need to be in tip top condition for rushing down stairs and sliding artfully towards the gifts under the tree.  And what better to do it in than a super cute onesie?

Tooty Fruity, Oh Rudy!

I’m looking adorable in this sweet little reindeer onesie by Tooty Fruity.  Now, admittedly this reindeer has a single horn (you know, unicorn style) but who am I to judge if this reindeer fancies itself a bit magical?  Anywhos, all joking aside, you can grab this fun gift over at The Naughty List.  I know I mentioned the other day that there were 10 Linden gifts there, but there are also a whole bunch of FREE gifts under the Christmas tree too!  I just joined the Evil Bunny Hunts group for free, and they were all mine.  Can’t say no to that!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

  • Venus

I think you guys could do with a bit of Christmas morning jammy sliding practice too!

A Little Christmas Shopping

A little Christmas Shopping

I love this time of year! I love the shops all decorated and the crisp flurries of snow. The carols and the smell of cinnamon and spruce. **Breathes in the Holidays**

Something warm….

Of course, I love having something nice and warm to wear while I’m out braving the crowds and the weather to find those perfect gifts for everyone. Lucky for me, Lybra has this gorgeous coat up for grabs in their Gacha at The Imaginarium. The “Winter Jacket” comes in four common colors and two Rares. There is also a romper to win with six colors. I think the 75L per play is well worth the quality of the coats!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Something Sparkly…

I also picked up this sweet sparkly necklace at the Imaginarium from Dreaming Thicket. This is “Ice Crystals Necklace” and it’s the free gift set out for everyone. The necklace is resizable so you can get the perfect fit. Thanks for the “Happy Holidays”, Dreaming!

The Imaginarium runs until December so hurry over to get your Gacha on and pick up some great free gifts!
