Bluberries and Donuts

Another weekend, another awesome Blueberry deal!  I should say “these things don’t happen often” more often, because we’ve been spoiled recently!

I’m Blue

For the Saturday Sale today, you’ll find the Blueberry Catrine top for just 75L in either solids or a few patterns, as well as the Melanie Jeans for 75L as well in either solids or ombré shades.  I love me some ombré so I went in that direction.  This deal won’t be around long, as is the Saturday Sale’s wont, so don’t wait too long!

Cover it in Rainbows

Cover it in Rainbows

Aren’t rainbows awesome?  Not only do they represent both Pride and peace, they’re also just really pretty.  I could probably wear rainbows every day of the year and be as happy as a clam.  The moment June rolls around, I am busy flitting all over the grid picking up as many of these ROY G. BIV creations as I possibly can.  It may be a bit of an obsession!

In the Name of Love

The latest group gift from Luas has hit the scene, and I must say that I am entirely obsessed with it.  The dress and shoes are both included in this awesomeness.  The dress comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty colours, even one option that makes the dress fully rainbow (yes!), so you’re sure to find something that floats your boat.  The Luas group is 50L to join, and you’ll find a whole huge wall of awesome group gifts there while you’re at it.

Just as an aside, my nails are also pride themed – you can get a huge nail applier set at Alaskametro for just 75L – it comes with so many options, and they’re just so pretty that I thought you might want to have a look!

Rainbows everywhere!

Puppies Don’t Need to Social Distance!

Epiphany Goodies

Hey gang,

Can you imagine I had *never* been to The Epiphany before this week???  So seriously what is wrong with me?  I had a *blast* and I found some awesome goodies to share with you.  I’m not sure how much longer Epiphany runs for so, if you want to go play in the plethora (my favorite word lately, can you tell??) of Gachas, go soon! But for the moment, let’s see what fun stuff I found!

You should always have a sidekick

My first fun goodie is my little Pomsky from HEXtraordinary.  He is animated and sooooooo cute (you can tell I have a thing by now for the pups!), he even looked up and what I was holding for the picture!  The gacha for these little guys is 75L

Speaking of what I am holding…

My sign, is from Nerth and was a 50L gacha.  Yes, I realize the whole pandemic is *finally* winding down a bit (yay!), but as an introvert, I have always hated people I don’t know getting in my personal space.  I mean, is it really necessary to bump me with your shopping cart repeatedly when we are both standing in line and the line is not moving?  I think the six feet rule should stay in place.  You stay in your space, I will stay in mine.  After all I have *always* followed this rule by staying out of the space of strangers, I think they should extend the same courtesy to me.  I *really* wanted to the sign saying “up for adoption” but didnt get it.  It would have been fun to see if anyone adopted me.  😉

The Jewels, Oh the jewels!

The lovely jewels on my forehead are from Okiya.  They were a rare from a 50L gacha.

Yes the backdrop too!

The building behind me is from ninety.  This was a 50L gacha.  It had all different buildings that you could use to make your own street!

Play in the Paint

Play in the Paint

I’ve been going through a bit of an artistic phase.  Some phases are a bit more prevalent than others, but since I’ve been spending much more time at home (as one does these days), I’ve been picking up my paintbrush a bit more often than I had been doing in the past.  I’m a great proponent of making lemonade out of lemons, so my rediscovered love of making art falls squarely into the making the best of it category!  I picked up a few fun, free finds today that really reminded me of how happy I am that I’ve got loads of paint to be creative with.

Hunting Time

It’s time for this month’s edition of The Free Dove hunts!  The featured designers this time around are Ydea Style and Shiny Stuffs.  The way this hunt works is that you have to join the free Free Dove group, then look for 5 hidden items at The Free Dove, and 5 at both Ydea Style and Shiny Stuffs!  If you’re searching for goodies from Ydea Style, then you’re looking for a little cupcake, and if it’s Shiny Stuffs you’re hankering for, then look for the little powder compact.  It’s all free, and it’s all fab!  I got this jean skirt from the offerings of  Ydea Style, and the shirt and sparkly tears come courtesy of Shiny Stuffs.  Take a peek at the hunt keys below!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

You’ve got until May 31st to take part, so happy hunting!

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Of Pink and Black

Of Pink and Black

I’ve always been a massive fan of pink and black mixed together.  I think it’s probably because it’s tickles both of my fancies: innocent, happy and child-like fun and a bit of mysterious darkness.  If you throw in a reference to Alice in Wonderland, then just colour me the happiest little avatar this side of the grid.

The Monster Mash

The Monster Mash Hunt is in full swing, and that means a bit of hunting and a lot of well-priced goodies.  I got this awesome dress over at Cats n Kittens Boutique!  It of course references my fave – the Cheshire Cat, and only cost me 1L, and a little bit of hunting.  This hunt gives you the option to search and get the prize for 1L, or if you can’t be bothered with searching, you can buy the gift for 25L near the entrance of the store.  Look for the little Halloween cutout (you’ll see an example by the poster) and it’s yours!  You’ll find all the hints and photos of gifts on their website HERE.  The Monster Mash Hunt runs until October 31st.

Stepping Out

These bubblegum pink platforms are the antithesis of anything dark, and you can get them as the latest group gift from Mosquito’s Way.  I always enjoy their gifts, as they are super well constructed and very pretty.  To get them, join the Mosquito’s Way group for FREE and click on the vendor by the front desk.  There are other gifts near the entrance too!  These platforms come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Time for ice cream… strawberry or black charcoal?  Hmm…

Pastel Power

Pastel Power

Has the time come again for me to wax lyrical about the joys of pastel?  I find that often the connotation is that pastel is sickly sweet, and maybe a bit childish.  But to that I say pooh!  What’s wrong with things being a bit young?  Pastel reminds me of donuts, flowers and shabby chic, which in my book are all wonderful things.  I am happy with a bit of child-like wonder right now!

Did Someone Say Candy?

Candy Kitten seem to be on board with me right now with regards to the importance of pastel.  This dress and jacket combo (which can be worn separately) are completely free to everyone, no need to join a group.  I’m all about the little rainbow and heart doodles too, because I’m sure I drew about 50,000 of those when I was young (and I still do, let’s be honest).  Head on over to Candy Kitten to grab this cute outfit, not sure how long it will be available!

Simple Delights

Simple Delights

Ahhhh, ice cream.  There is a great pleasure in this simple delight which comes in every flavour you can imagine.  Once on vacation, I found a place that even sold onion flavoured gelato.  Needless to say, I didn’t buy it, but instead went for my fave flavour which has always been lemon.  Though I would make a case for this watermelon ice cream I’ve got going on….

Ice Cream Café

The Ice Cream Café hunt is taking place right now and it’s filled to the brim with cute and colourful designs to make you glad summer is upon us (or if you’re in a part of the world where it’s winter…it will have you dreaming of warmer days!).  This hunt has paid and free items dispersed around the sim, and I settled on this gorgeous dress from Antaya which only set me back 25L.  With a bit more searching, I also found this free ice cream cone from ChicChica which (as with all ChicChica items) comes with a super cute bento hold – pinkies out, I say!  Ice Cream Café is running until June 30th, so you’ve got a bit of time to check out all the hunt items, gachas and gifts!

Soak Up the Sun

Soak Up the Sun

Hi Fab Free! I don’t think I’m quite ready to head out to the beaches, but my backyard basin will do me fine. The weather is nice, and I need some sunshine. Most  of my little backyard setup is a new gacha set by Petite Mort out at Gacha Garden. My bikini and wedge shoes are part of the set too. Oh, and let’s not forget the best part, the mojito!

What’s this about a mojito you ask? Well, it is the Petite Mort Exclusive at Gacha Garden awarded after 20 plays. It has an animated hold pose. The bikini and shoes both come in several sizes and colors, and the furniture has poses. This fun Cabana gacha set by Petite Mort at Gacha Garden is just 50 linden per play, and is perfect for summer.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Sweet as Pie

Sweet as Pie

I have a tendency to vacillate quite violently between wanting to look exceedingly sexy and then wanting to look sweet with a hint of innocence.  I like the ability to choose who I’m going to be on any given day just by changing up my look.  After all, we’re all too complex to ever just fit into one box, don’t you think?   I’m clearly tiptoeing towards the innocent look today, and I’m ok with that!

Makeover Who?

The Makeover Room is in full swing right now, and as is their wont, there is a free gift for members of their free to join group.  You’ll find it right by the landing point on a little table to your left.  The Spirit Indestructible dress is by Entice and is just so sweet with the unicorn print that I couldn’t pass it up.  A tip of the hat to Fab Free Reader (and future chat moderator!) Zara who pointed me in the direction of this gift!

Sweet and Spicy like Wasabi

Over at Wasabi (purveyors of excellent hair) you’ll find a gift put out for members of the SLFO group.  SLFO is free to join, making this cute braided look completely free.  Don’t you love the sweet pink dipped ends?  Not sure how long this cute look will be out, so head over there ASAP!

Who are you going to be today?
