Imaginary Tea Party

Imaginary Tea Party

I think a garden party would be just capital right now.  The kind of party where you get dressed up, have small sandwiches and inexplicably watch some polo.  Of course,  your drink will have a sprig of lavender or rosemary in it, and you’ll insist that one more jam tart would be too many while you eat it anyway.  Perfect!

The Perfect Dress

There’s a new group gift over at Belle Époque!  This dress is a necessary addition to all your garden party dreams.  The long red skirt and poppy-strewn top can be worn separately and look absolutely fetching!  This pretty outfit is sized for Maitreya bodies and to get it, just join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  There are many other gifts to pick up while you’re there (including a Fab Free gift!) so do take a good look around.

More Staying at Home!

The Stay at Home Club rages on, with new gifts continually being added to the very very long list of goodies.  I’m showing off two things today:  pretty FREE lipstick from Alma which comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega and Classic System Layers (when you land, the store is wayyyy behind you at the landing point, turn around and walk to the far side of the shopping area!).  The other gift I’m using is this pose from Unicorn that comes in a pack of three and is of course, completely free.  Awesome!

What do you imagine at your fancy garden party?

Mood Boost

Mood Boost

I’ve been finding solace in the sweet things in life recently.  I know it sounds trite and I’m sure it’s been said, but chocolate really does help.  It may not help the way my jeans fit, but it does help with my mood.  JK Rowling was on to a thing when she said chocolate had magical mood-enhancing properties after Dementor attacks!  Anyway, I’m rambling again!  Have a little bit of sweet with me.

It’s Just a Phase

The Phases Event is here to remind us that though things can sometimes suck, it is really just a phase.  Like the Moon, we’ll wax brightly again!  To get you in the waxing mood, they’ve got a whole bunch of gifts at the event.  I saw quite a few tattoos and applier gifts, and the one from Augury tickled my fancy:  this swirling rainbow blush that makes me think of colourful powders used in Holi celebrations, or watercolour paintings of spring flowers.  To get it, all you have to do is click on the box at the event and buy for 0L!  Yep, it’s free!  It comes with an Omega Applier and BOM layers.  You’ve got until May 2nd to visit Phases!

Hot Pink

My outfit is also buoying my mood with it’s bright cheerfulness.  It’s the latest group gift from Luas, and comes with quite the HUD to change the texture on the skirt and the colour of the top, which can be worn separately.  Lots of options to choose from!  To get it, just join the Luas group for 50L, then click on the gift vendor.  There are loads of gifts there, so super worth the join fee!

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

Colour Therapy

Colour Therapy

I’m all about bright colours to spice up the dreary days.  I think that a good purple can change anyone’s outlook, no matter how sour.  If you mix it with colours that make  you vaguely think of a peacock, then I think you’re about to hit a winning combination.  Colour therapy is a thing, isn’t it?

Redeux it all Over Again!

Redeux is celebrating their 3rd anniversary right now, and you know what that means!  Free presents!  I spent ages unpacking after I visited and found all sorts of pretty things.  There seems to be some debate going on about whether you have to join a group to get these gifts or not, but I can tell you that I got them all just by clicking, no group join required.  Do let me know if you experienced something else.  Here’s what I’m showing you right now:

  • FREE dress by Antaya sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE glasses by Noir

Redeux isn’t going to be around for too long, just until April 21st, so make sure you head over there as soon as you can!  You’ll find poses, swimwear, accessories and things to make you laugh, all for free.  Enjoy!

See you colourful cats and kittens later!

Roam Free

Roam Free

Sometimes you need a little vacation from the realms of the kitchen or the couch.  Which seem to be the only places I’m visiting in RL these days.  I found an extremely itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini and went off to Kanaloa Surf Beach to let my mind roam free.

She Wore a…

The lucky boards at Safira have been updated with some new awesomeness!  There are five new boards, each with a cute item I’m sure you’ll love.  I was lucky enough to pick up the Daisy bikini which tickled my fancy from the moment I landed.  To grab this item, join the Safira group for 50L, and then wait for your lucky letter (or number if your name starts with a number!) to come up.  The join fee is more than worth it at Safira, as their group gift wall is groaning with gorgeous goodies.

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

#MOOD

#MOOD

It’s the perfect day to listen to music and just generally be awesome.  I know I do that on the regular (and also I’m extremely modest), but today seems to be calling to me with the chill out vibes.  What music do you listen to when you need to chill?  I’m more of the “if I can dance to it, I like it” type, so chill music isn’t my forte.  I’m taking all your recommendations!

The Queen is Here

There’s a new awesome group gift at Queenz!  This super cool bodysuit type outfit is just what the doctor ordered for a bit of amusement.  It comes with an HUD to change the colour, as well as change the saying to several rather rude options that I thought I’d save your eyes from here on the blog!  To get it, all you have to do is join the Queenz group for free and click on the vendor.  There are loads of fun gifts at Queenz, and I’m sure you’ll have an great time trying them all out.

Best Bitches

Best Bitches

Every gal needs a bestie.  I am quite lucky that I have found loads of amazing friends over the years on SL.  My Fab Free family are not only people I collaborate with, but we have a great laugh behind the scenes and share our lives and ups and downs with each other.  One other person that my SLife has been made rich by is my good friend Eesoov.  We met right back at the beginning of my days in SL, and she showed me the ropes – as well as quite a few police boxes (don’t get me started on Doctor Who…).   We’re showing off a few group gifts that we’re sure you’ll love.

Best B’s

Me and Eesoov often go shopping together, and though our styles can be quite different, we did agree that this group gift over at Foxes was right up our alley.  I joined the group for 150 Lindens, and went into the right hand side of the store to find this gift.  Just pay the vendor 1L, and then you can transfer the “bitches” version of the dress to your bestie!  How cool is that?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

So Cosmo

While I was over at Cosmopolitan, I found that there are some new group gifts this round!  The pose you see Eesoov and I striking is the current gift by K&S Poses that you can pick up by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free.  There was also a super cute pair of heels that you can pick up too while you’re there!

I hope that you have someone really special to share your SL with, I know I do!

Looking for Winter

Looking for Winter

As much as I’d like to pretend we get real winter weather here in Texas… we don’t. I have a real life closet full of cute winter boots and coats that get no love. If I want snow… I have to get on the grid!

Fuzzy Elegance

It seems like an oxymoron, but this fantastic hat, coat and boots set is just that. Fuzzy and elegant. This is the ‘Fur Pocket Winter Coat’ set and it is one of the In-Store gachas at Amiable’s main store. You get the coat, the boots, the great fuzzy hat AND the sweater all for 65L per play. I was lucky enough to pull one of the two rares and got the cream colored coats and a HUD for the sweater with eight color choices. Amiable has a ton of gacha machines in store right next to the ton of past Group Gifts, all ready for us bargain hunters!

Sizes Included

  • One size Fit Mesh (I had no problems fitting it to Maitreya at all)

Radical Resolutions

Radical Resolutions

Everyone is making resolutions these days.  Usually they involve more salad, or perhaps even heading out to the gym more.  While these are all honourable things to endeavour, I am heading for a more fashion-inspired resolution:  Time to have some sartorial adventures!  My clothes often echo a desire for a hint of madness that comes from within, so I am striving to make that desire more of a reality.  Come on, let’s be more adventurous with our clothes in the new year!

Ring Around the Rosary

I am taking semi baby steps today with my adventures, and it all starts with a super awesome and slightly crazy outfit by Rosary.  They have put out a new group gift for January, and it’s got all the brilliant madness that I’m searching for.  It comes with a colour-change HUD that has a bunch of colours as well as some cool textures too like animal print and a few awesome tartans as well!  To grab your own copy of the off-the-shoulder jumpsuit, just join the Rosary group for 200L, and it’s all yours.  There are two other group gifts there too, so totally worth the join fee!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Being Phedorable

Phedora have a new group gift out as well, and it’s these cool platforms covered in hothouse blooms.  There are several different textures to choose from, and they’re all very evocative of warmer climes.  I got my pair by joining the Phedora group for 350 Lindens.  There are a whole bunch of other group gifts available there as well.  These shoes are sized for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya feet.

Do you resolve to be a little more adventurous?  Let’s make it happen!

Dark Bubblegum

Dark Bubblegum

I’m feeling a bit bubblegum today.  But bubblegum with a twist… Something pink and sweet underlined with a bit of darkness.  I was always into the whole pastel goth look, and I may have touched upon the theme today with this look!

It’s Amazing!

My dark and amazing t-shirt dress today is a free gift I picked up over at Evie.  I joined their group for free and picked it up by clicking on the vendor right by the front desk.  I have to admit, it does actually make me feel amazing, as advertised!  This fun dress comes sized for Maitreya, Freya, Hourglass and Isis.

Pout for Me

Over at Pout! there are a bunch of free makeup group gifts to be had. Again, join the free group and find the gift room which is nestled in a back room upstairs.  I picked up my sparkly lip gloss and eyelashes there, though there are a whole bunch of other fun things on the wall too!  The lipstick comes with appliers for Catwa, LAQ, Lelutka and Vista heads.  The eyelashes are for Catwa, Lelutka, Genus and Vista!   Don’t I look pretty?

Hope you find ways to colour your world too!
