A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

Happy Easter, FabFree!  To all those who celebrate, I hope that you enjoy this season of renewal and rebirth.  Oh, and of course… chocolate.   I’m basking happily in the Springtime sunshine and breathing in the fresh air that has wafted in our direction.  With a pocket full of jellybeans, let’s get down to it!

Hunting Time

I seem to be doing a lot of hunting these days, and though sometimes hunts can leave me feeling a bit frustrated and dizzy, I’m happy to report that this Easter hunt at Safira is pretty easy and fun.  I picked up my lovely lavender top and blue gingham skirt there, and each egg only cost me 15L each.  Just look around for the little turquoise eggs before April 11th when it comes to a close.

Easter Hunt 2021!

Yay! Shoes!

I’m always excited when there’s a new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  They’re celebrating their 6th anniversary with this really pretty pair of frilly flats in a full fatpack of colours (that was a lot of f’s!).  The counter at Miss Chelsea is groaning with super gorgeous gifts, and you’ll be able to access this one (and the rest) when you join their group for 100L.  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy

Hop along, my lovelies!

Victoriana

Victoriana

Some nights call for pretending you live in a fancy mansion, I think.  You know, the kind that is sort of decaying in a very opulent way.   I sometimes like to go all suuuuper old school in my references and bring out the Victorian touches to make things feel special.  Time to bring out the Blancmange and Jellied Eels, otherwise it just won’t be a party, now will it?

Just add Salt & Pepper

The latest group gift from Salt & Pepper is this very versatile and sexy dress.  It comes with the option to be opaque or semi-transparent, so depending on where you’re heading you can sexy it up or down.  There are also several different colours in the HUD to choose from.  You can get this dress by joining the Salt & Pepper group for 300L.  There’s a pretty huge wall of gifts there too, so totally worth it.

I’ve Been Framed!

There’s a free gift for all over at Apple Fall right now, and you know that means quality!  These photo frames behind me are completely free, no need to join a group.  They’re the ones that put me in the mood for a bit of dark Victoriana today.  I feel like they wouldn’t be out of place at Allerdale Hall (Crimson Peak is the only scary movie you’ll ever catch me watching – and it’s mostly because of all the Tom Hiddleston, and the fact that it’s a gothic romance, but I digress…).  There are several different frame colours and you can pop  your own photos inside!

Raise a glass of saloop!

All the Blossoms

All the Blossoms

In the cold depths of January, all I can really think of is a bit of sunshine and warmth.  It’s been grey in my part of the world for the past forever weeks, and so the thought of sunshine and delicate cherry blossoms warms my insides a bit.  It’s all I can think of!

Blossoms

Apple Blossom just put out a new group gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group (SLFO)! The group is free to join, and with it you can access to lots of quite lovely gifts.  There are two different versions of this dress available for members – this one I’ve got on as well as a plain pink one.  You can also wear it with or without sleeves, if that’s your thang!  It’s sexy and cute all at the same time, which makes me one happy camper.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

Belle

Belle Époque have also put a new free gift out for members of the SLFO group:  a lovely set of bento nails.  They come in some really cool holographic-esque colours, and I think you can make them work with loads of different looks.  They come rigged for Maitreya and Legacy hands.  Again, this group is free to join, making these nails entirely free!

I’m not going back to the cold!  NEVAHHHH!

The Long Winter’s Nap

The Long Winter's Nap

Yawn!  I just woke up from the long winter’s nap I wasn’t planning on taking.  You know what though? I REGRET NOTHING!  Sometimes a long nap just cures what ails you – and when you throw in footie pyjamas…well.  Things don’t get much better than that!

Meow!

KitCat have graciously put out this super cozy pair of jimjams for members of their free to join group.  They come in three different plaid options (red, green and blue) and you can either keep the feet on or remove them for all your foot warming needs.  This cute set comes sized for Maitreya bodies. There are a bunch of other adorable gifts there too, so do pick them up (and don’t forget to stalk their lucky boards a bit!).

I See the Moon

Moon have recently snuck out some cute lucky boards.  I’ve been in their group a long time and knew all about their famous midnight mania board, but when I was deep in the demands of the Christmas season, I didn’t notice that they also put out four new lucky boards.  I got this super cool hair and hat when my letter came up.  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours, and the hat also has several different texture options so you can match to your outfit.   To gain access to their boards, just join the Moon group for 99L!

Ooh…this bed is far too cozy to leave!

The Panettone Distraction

The Panettone Distraction

I am the perennial list writer.  I have lists of to dos, lists of completed items, lists of lists… It’s just a thing I do.  It makes me feel more in control of everything I’m supposed to be accomplishing.  I think I need to start my list of Christmas to-dos ASAP, as I’m falling a bit behind.  The problem is, I’m more in the mood for some treats – a slice of panettone and a cup of hot chocolate would go down right before I get down to business.

Seeing Stars

When I saw this dress from Loki, I knew I had to have it.  I like anything with stars on it!  It’s their latest group gift, and it’s oh so pretty.  You can get your very own deep blue and star peppered dress by joining the Loki group for 99L and clicking on the vendor.  You’ll find plenty of other gifts there too, so totally worth the join fee.

  • Legacy

Clear a Space

Apple Fall sure are churning out the awesomeness these days, and I was so excited to hear that they have yet another free group gift out for their group members!  The Ariana bureau (the pretty desk behind me, with most of the clutter on the shelves) is yours for the very affordable price of 0L.  Just join their group for free, and ta-da!  Can’t say no to that!

Ok, after this little sip, time to write that list!

The Perfect Excuse

The Perfect Excuse

Here’s the story.  I was on my way to a party that happened to be in the  middle of a forest.  And then the cabbie let me out in what was clearly the wrong spot, and here I am, not dressed for the weather again in an icy, albeit very pretty locale.  Now if only I could get some reception on my phone I might make my way to the eggnog that has my name written all over it.

Bonfire of the Vanities

To be honest, I really really really just wanted to take a picture at The Forest sim, because every year it’s my favourite place to take photos during the holidays.  The twinkling lights, the deep blue skies, the towering trees… oof, it gets me right in the chimichangas every time.  Anywhos,  This month’s round of Vanity has some fun gifts for members of their free to join group!  You’ll find a swirly Christmas tree right in the middle of the room with gifts on it, and there are some really nice ones.  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE Dress by Beyond sized for Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Pose by ATP with 4 more in the box
  • FREE Headband by Oops, comes with an HUD to change the colour of the band and the roses

Head on over to Vanity ASAP!

Oop!  My signal is back!

My Normal Baking Attire

My Normal Baking Attire

It is the perfect day to do some baking.  I don’t usually do baking in my undercrackers (I promise), but Second Life seems to have it’s own set of rules.  So if you want to whip up some cakes in a fabulous robe, nobody will even bat an eyelash.  I’ve progressed to the part where I lie appealingly on a chaise longue and eat the fruits of my labour, which is the best part really.  What’s the recipe for this salacious scene?  Read on!

What to Wear?

When ruffling through my insanely large collection of lingerie, I thought to myself, 5000 different sets are not enough!  I need something new (as one invariably does)!  I picked up this super lovely set of bra, panties, stockings and robe over at Maai and I really think you should too.  The group is free to join, and the lingerie fits just right.  It’s kinda nice and Christmassy too, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

And Then the Baking!

Baking in SL is so much easier than in RL.  This lovely bundt cake and the muffins right beside are the latest free group gift from Apple Fall (as if they haven’t spoiled us enough recently!).  The group is free to join, and you’ll find these delicious gifts in the front entrance.  There are other gifts you can pick up there too, just look on the shelf in the corner!

I will NOT get crumbs on this right?

Right!?

Dynamic Duo

WOW… it’s the end of November… already! Winter is right around the corner. Of course, lot’s of us have already seen snow and cold temps so that corner is not far off.  With all this weather, I decided to do a one store indoors Hunt for the Blog today.

When I got the notice that LsR was doing a 15L in store Winter Hunt, I hollered at Aline, “Did you get this? Let’s go hunt, girl!” And we jumped right in! Cause great minds think alike! And we even ended up picking very similar outfits for some matchy matchy goodness.

I’m wearing the frilly little ‘Sexy Sannae’ dress. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of the ruffle on both the sleeves and the bodice. Be sure to wear your nice panties with this one, ladies cause it is a little cheeky. 😉

Aline picked out the ‘Sexy Yanika’ dress today. If you pick this one too, you’ll actually get three dresses for your 15L prize money. The dress comes in white, white with a polka dot print and a white lace pattern. Plus a HUD to change the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included for Both

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite *
  • SLink – Hourglass

* Yanika doesn’t include the Maitreya Petite size

The LsR Winter Hunt only runs until the 5th of December so hurry hurry and get your hunt on!

The Forgotten Morrigan

The Forgotten Morrigan

Ghosts, goblins, mythical monsters, and the souls of the deceased are all said to come through to this plane of existence as the so called Veil thins. This group gift pose by IDK Poses inspired me to imagine other such entities that might cross over into our world during this mythically magical time. I also picked up one of several inexpensive finds on the ChicModa Spooktacular Hunt to help me bring this look to life. Keep reading for all the details about. Full credits will be listed at the end of the post.

IDK Poses

This pose and moon prop at IDK Poses is one of multiple group gifts available. The pose includes the bright crescent moon prop, and the static pose. The IDK Poses group has a small one-time join fee of 10 linden.

ChicModa 

ChicModa is having a fun hunt at their mainstore. Hidden around the grounds of the shop and inside the store are 9 total Halloween themed items priced at 50 linden each. There’s no group required, simply find the Halloween gift bags and purchase them for 50 linden. I found and am wearing the Tay Bloody Top. This Spooktacular Hunt at ChicModa will end October 31, so don’t wait!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

Orange You Glad

Orange You Glad

This pumpkin queen is ready to dive into all things pumpkin.  You know, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte (though I prefer to remove the coffee….dunno what that says about me) and pumpkin um…. picking?  Sure! It’s time to get crazy about orange!

Kink or Treat

A Town Called Short Leash is having one of their epic hunts right now, this one called “Kink or Treat”.  As you can guess from the title, it is indeed an adult-themed hunt, though not all the prizes on the hunt are adult items.  I chose the prizes from Aurora’s Closet to show you, because they just made me happy in general.  I love a good theme!  I searched the sim for the little purple candy bars and grabbed the shirt for 10L, the pants for 15L and the shoes for 25L (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy & Slink).  You’re sure to find something you like if you check out all the hunt keys and hints on the A Town Called Short Leash website.  Have fun!  You’ve got til October 31st!
