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.

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?

Play the Game

Play the Game

Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the… pastel stands and moody outfits?  Sounds like the perfect combination to me, shame I can’t make it happen in RL.  It makes me think of those boomboxes you could get in the 90’s that were those perfect ice cream hues.  Then you’d sit by the radio and wait for your song to come on so you could record it.  Ah, the nostalgia. Anywhos, FREEBIES!

Harajuku Girl

Harajuku is celebrating their 1 year anniversary of eventhood!  That means there are all sorts of goodies by the stalls there, and I do love love love putting together an ensemble with event findings.  It is one of my fave pastimes for reals.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L shirt by TNK (no size is mentioned, but it works on my Maitreya body with a bit of alpha work!)
  • FREE Lollipop by Besha with bento hold
  • FREE Star blush by Gloom with appliers for Catwa, Genus and Omega

There are loads of other gifts too, no group join required, just pay the vendors (most gifts are free!)

The Truth is Out There

Also, while I wasn’t looking, Truth snuck out a new group gift.  Some of my friends didn’t know either as it seems like the notification got lost in the shuffle for some people.  Check in group notices, and you’ll find this really versatile bob in a full fatpack of colours with styling options too.  It has the hairbase attached as well, which gives it a very realistic look that I love.  The Truth group is 350L to join, but you know you’re getting regular awesome hairstyles, so totally and utterly worth the join fee.  Go grab it!

Is there some form of sporting event going on?

Pastel Ice Cream

Pastel Ice Cream

Another magical element of summer that I enjoy all too much is the plethora of frozen treats you can get!  It seems to me that ice cream is no longer just a thing you have on its own, but a crazy amalgam of as many sweet things as one can stuff into a small container.  I’m not complaining about the craziness of today’s ice cream, on the contrary…I say bring it on and why not dress just as sweet to match?

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards for the month of July over at Safira!  5 cute outfits (plus the 5 that went up last month) that are all sorts of adorable!  I got this two piece look while hanging out there, and you must admit that it’s really sweet.  I like a good pleated skirt, and if it’s turquoise I surely can’t complain!  To get yours, just join the Safira group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are loads and loads of great gifts to pick up while you’re there too!

Magical Beret

I told you all yesterday about the free gifts over at The Crystal Heart Academy, but I had one more thing I really wanted to show you that I picked up while I was there weaving my way through the magic wands and sparkles.  This hat and hair by Ayashi is simply divine, don’t you think? It just makes me super happy.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the event, and you can wear it with or without the hat.  It comes in several hair colours as well as a super useful HUD to change the hat colour.  Cuteness overload!

Geez, this ice cream is so tasty!

Japanimation

Japanimation

I have always had the dream to take a trip to Japan and do all sorts of ridiculous things like buy nonsensical t-shirts, go to weird cat cafes and eat copious amounts of sushi.  My dress today has inspired me to go in a bit of a kawaii direction, not sure I pulled it off completely but, let’s just say I feel like I should be mastering chopsticks any second now.

A Pop of Colour

Ok, so maybe this dress from Quinnty’s has more than just a little pop of colour, but it makes me think of all the cool hot pink and green things I used to wear way back in the late 80’s.  Good times.  This dress comes in three little parts, the main bit I’m showing you, with an optional bolero you can wear as well as a little modesty patch to keep eyes from peering where you don’t want them to!  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L.  There are a wholeeee bunch of other fun gifts there too, so make sure you take a look!

In Between the Lines

In Between the Lines

You remember when you would read fashion magazines as a teen, and they always contained some form of quiz?  You know, like the type that told you what kind of guy was for you?  Well, I’d always do the ones that told you which style was yours, and annoyingly each time I would land somewhere in the middle of three categories.  Something like, one third rocker, one third boho and one third sporty.  I dunno if there was something wrong with my programming back then, or maybe I was catching on early to the fact that it’s really ok to switch it up!  Today, I’m feeling just a little rough and tough, though tomorrow I may show up in frills!  You just never know…

Syndicate Sunday Time!

Syndicate Sunday has rolled around again, and there are loads of great deals going on all over the grid.  Syndicate Sunday takes place during the week after the first Sunday of every month, and you’ll find loads of goodies priced at just 69 Lindens in some of your favourite stores!  I made my way over to Psycho Barbie and found this insanely awesome bomber jacket (I love the fact that it falls off the shoulders, and it happens to come with a fairly extensive HUD) for just 69 Lindens.  I also nipped by Astara and got these great celestial earrings for 69L as well.  There are lots of other goodies in participating stores, just check out the event’s website to figure out what you just can’t live without!
