A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

The reams of writing that has taken place over the years about the importance of the little black dress is longer than I care to imagine.   Any nattering I can do about the importance of one is only sure to muddy the waters of deep thinking about how one must needs have a LBD for any occasion.  Instead, perhaps I’ll discuss how much I love Froot Loops.  And then, I’ll wonder what human sat down to think it would be cool to write the word “froot” instead of “fruit”.  These are the things that keep me up at night!

Lucky Girl

There are two new lucky board prizes over at Luas!  You may have guessed by now that this little black dress is one of the two prizes that are currently available, the other being a red dress.  The letter A came up pretty quick for me this time, so I suggest you grab a bunch of friends and head over (preferably 26 of them, all with a different letter of the alphabet starting their name? eheheh) and then wait til your letter comes up.  The Luas group is 50L to join, but there is a huge wall of monthly group gifts and the lucky letter boards get changed up pretty often.  Totally worth it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Mmm, Froot Loops.

A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

It was high time to head to the beach.  After a long day of work, buried under pages and pages of who knows what drivel,  I looked at my watch and thought “you know…I need some vitamin sea today”.  I put on my unnecessarily complicated sandals (but so fashion!) and slipped into something summery then headed down to feel a bit of warmth.  I was ever so glad to have brought my camera with me, just so I could capture a bit of summer and carry it with me wherever I went afterwards.  A few snaps of palm fronds will keep me going until I can escape again!

Feeling Lucky

I was a bit inspired for some warmth today after I saw the newest lucky boards at Luas.  This cute little outfit had me dreaming of warmer climes the minute I saw it (you have the option to add or remove the tied jacket)!  To gain access to the lucky boards at Luas, just join their group for 50L, then wait for your letter to come up!  There are also loads of really great group gifts for you to pick up while you’re there, making this group join fee ever so worth it.

Roman Sandal Empire

Looks like Empire are having a bit of an item retirement sale at the moment.  The store isn’t shutting down, but all items in the store are on sale before they disappear forever, making room for the new.  Pretty much ever pair of shoes and accessories are 199L (some 99L!) for fatpacks, which is an awesome deal.  However, what caught my eye was the 35L per pull gachas you’ll find at the back of the store.  I got these awesome sandals as well as the fun glasses for just 35L each.  Worth a shot!

Gosh I wish I could TP to a real beach in RL! 😉

The weather outside is frightful

The weather outside is frightful
It’s been so snowy in the Secondlife sims, that I have been moonlighting as a snow plow driver in my spare time.  (just kidding, the snowplow made a nice backdrop.)  What I’ve actually been doing is trying to keep up with all these great holiday freebees.  So many designers have been giving away so many nice gifts, it is hard to keep up.  I recently found out A Town Called a Short Leash (adult sim) was having an event, so I packed up the snow plow and headed over.  (okay, I will stop with the snow plow.) The Christmas Tree in the center of town had a pile of free presents from different designers on the sim.  I picked up this nice Roux sweater dress by Starlight Apparel there.  The dress comes with a matching belt that can be worn with the dress or separately.

I also found this really cute Hearts face tattoo by Letter K which you can see in better detail on the picture below.

These gifts were put out for Christmas, so you better get them quick.  The holiday season will be gone before you know, taking the Christmas trees and gifts with it.

Kitten in the Snow

Kitten in the Snow

Don’t worry little one, I will keep you safe and warm. I’ll also keep myself cute at warm thanks to a few free group gifts at FaMESHed. If you’ve not made it over to FaMESHed yet, it’s well worth it to go. You may have seen the posts Aline has done featuring some of the many gifts at FaMESHed. I also recently showed the FaMESHed gift by Cae. If not, I’ll link them below. For this post I am featuring the free FaMESHed group gifts by Luas and Limerence. FaMESHed runs until December 27th, and the required event group is free to join.

Luas

My full outfit, minus the shoes and socks, is a free FaMESHed group gift by Luas. The scarf, sweater, and skirt are all included in this fantastic free gift. Each piece comes in the pink/black color shown with several size choices. I really love the warm tones to the shades of pink in this outfit. The extra long sleeves I’ve come to associate with Luas are also so cute and cozy for winter.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Limerence

This tousled chin-length hairstyle by Limerence is also free at FaMESHed with the event group tag. It comes in rigged and unrigged versions for easy fitting, and with or without the delicate shimmery snowflakes. This free hairstyle comes in a brown color pack with several brunette tones.

The Wild Woods

The Wild Woods

How lovely it is to take a little jaunt through the woods.  Sometimes when my mind is full of warring ideas, and to-do lists, it’s just nice to go out into the peace of the world and be alone.  A few birds said hello, but that was it.  The rest was calm and quiet, and perfect.

Warm Up

To head out in the woods, one always needs to be cozy, so this group gift sweater from Amiable is exactly what I needed. It has a bit of a grunge edge to it, which kinda floats my boat, but it’s also very soft and quite lavender.  It’s everything I love!  To get it, just join the free Amiable group and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the massive gift wall.  Don’t forget to pick up all the rest!

Luas have got your antler needs covered with their latest group gift, which is this set of pointy and Christmassy antlers.  They come with an HUD to let you customize the little decorations as well as the antler shade.  You can get your own by joining their group for 50L.  There are also loads of other group gifts to be had at Luas too!

Hope you get a bit of peace too!

Down at the Rock and Roll club

Down at the Rock and Roll Club

A few days ago someone posted in the Luas Store Group the lucky letters on the boards at Luas, and one was mine.  I love Luas, so I was excited at the chance to win something off their prize board.  I rushed to the store right away, hoping I did not miss it.  I got there right in time I nabbed this cute punk dress for free. The Valeria dress came in two styles, solid black and black plaid.  It also included these cute leg garter accesories as well.  You can wear the garters with the dress, but also mix and match with your other outfits.

A punk dress needs some bold lipstick and tattoos, right?  I’ve talked about about Free Bees before, but I can’t say enough about their nice makeup, which the store offers for free on the marketplace. The lip gloss I am wearing is from Free Bees Mermaid Makeup set.  Like all their makeup, this lipgloss is BOM.  As I mentioned in my last post, I am on a real tattoo kick.  I love that I can change body art like makeup and wear it to compliment an outfit.  I found this nice little set of face tattoos by La Baguette for free on the marketplace.

Love the Fighters

Love the Fighters

These days, it’s getting more and more likely that you’ll find a really kick-ass female lead in a movie.  I’m happy to report that so many movie makers are starting to understand that a strong female character really can carry a film.  I get really inspired by the likes of Black Widow, Wonder Woman and even the March girls from Little Women.  They all know what it means to fight like a girl!

Fight it Out

Luas is celebrating these strong women with their latest group gift.  You can pick up this cute skirt and top combo (and loads of other gifts) by joining the group for 50L.  The top and skirt can be worn separately and come with an extensive HUD to customize your look.  Lots of fun!

Sizes

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

Keep on fighting!

Cacophony

Cacophony

It was a quiet Sunday morning.  All was peaceful, and a thin mist was hanging in the sunny hollows.  The birds were just beginning to wake, and a calm lay over the land….when suddenly the roofers appeared across the way and started making a godawful racket.  Their hammers rained blows upon the roof they were perched upon, and horror of horrors: they woke me up.  How could they possibly destroy the peace and tranquility I had so clearly earned?  Travesty, I say!

Back to Kustom9

The only way to get out of the funk caused by the uncaring roofers was clearly to get into some shopping therapy.  The best way to do that is always to shop but not spend any Lindens (and also listen to loud music and eat a cake pop…)!  I headed back to Kustom9, where they’re still celebrating their anniversary, and picked up a few of the gifts I missed out on on my first whirlwind visit.  It’s much quieter now, so you’ll actually be able to walk through at a semi-leisurely pace.  As mentioned before, the gifts from Kustom9 are all free to members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top by Luas sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite and Legacy Perky.  Comes with an HUD to change to 8 different colours and five different images on the front!
  • FREE skirt by M.Birdie sized for Maitreya

Kustom9 is running until November 10th!

FabFree Coverage of Kustom9:

Sweet but Psycho by Prudence Rexroth
