Not Weird at All

Not Weird at All

Sometimes we all get caught up in whether we’re weird.  You know, like that moment where you’re on the dance floor and suddenly wonder if your dance moves are just…weird.  Or perhaps you wonder whether your penchant for pickled eggplants is outside the norm.  To that, I say pish-posh!  Be your own brand of beautiful.  Be weird, be vast, be brilliant!  Be you.  Because you’re pretty awesome.

No, Again!

Equalizer Magazine has come out with a new issue, and that doesn’t only mean some pretty pictures to look at and great articles to read, it also means some new group gifts for members of their group!  I toddled over to No_Match, and picked up an issue.  While I was at it, I joined the free Equalizer Magazine group, and then got this awesome long hair for free! Just click on the little gift box under the Equalizer Magazine sign.  You can’t beat that with a stick!  It comes in several natural shades, with both a version for men and women.

Miix it Quick

Miix Event seems to be ending this round very very soon (I see some things are getting put away as I meander through the stalls), but there are still a few free group gifts out if you hurry.  I grabbed these cute shorts by RD Style for free – but if you walk around you can pick up a few other cute gifts before it all disappears.  The next round is set to start on the 30th, so I wouldn’t wait too long to get these free goodies!

Roaring into Laundry Day

NoMatch - No Glow; Goodvibes 04 Lil Tiger

Down in the delta country, Mondays are wash days (laundry). One of the New Orleans food traditions is a heaping serving of red beans with sausage cooked all day over a low fire while the laundry was done. Of course it’s served over sweet white rice like most everything is here.

Doing laundry is soooo boring and hard work. I decided to take a little break and show off a couple of the goodies I have recently picked up round the grid.

Gimme a Head with Hair, Long Beautiful Hair

This great wild and curly hair style is the latest group gift at No_Match. No_Glow can be yours, as well as a room full of other group gifts for the joining fee of $50L. I LOVE this style; its fun. It reminds me of the 60s & 70s.  All these curls will not make your ARC go up much if you watch that kind of thing. Included is the Essentials color hud.

Being a Sinner

One of the hunts I’ve enjoyed over the years is the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. Also known as the Sin City Hunt 5 you can check out the hunt hints and preview pics. The only catch to this one is that those hints aren’t linked to the preview pics. Makes it a bit different.

The cute lingerie top and bottoms I’m chilling in come from Goodvibes. The Lil Tiger Set will set you back $2L. It’s perfect for laundry day or any day you need to relax. You get 2 sets: white & pink with the super cute lil tiger on the front. As a bonus there is an omega applier for a cute little tat on your butt cheek.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
  • System layers
  • Omega applier for bottom tat

Time to check on the red beans!

Dreaming of Spring – Aaaachooo

telsiope Avril Spring Air Hunt

Am I being anti St Pat’s Day? Hmm, maybe a little. Spring is springing all over the place. Shovel off that remaining snow, plant your flowers, etc. In my case it’s time to sneeze! No mind, I still love spring; everything is fresh and new. Feeling a bit whimsical today I put together this really pretty outfit.

How Precious is it?

Prior to my return to blogging I had never heard of Telsiope’s Couture. I discovered the store during one of the FabFree Hunts last year. What a wonderful shop! It’s not a huge store but there is a variety of styles. Telsiope’s Couture also generously gives gifts to many different groups and regularly participates in hunts.

This dress shouts spring with the muted pastel colors and ruffles! I love being able to change my style on a whim in Second Life. You know, one minute I can be a sweet nymph and the next a dark dominatrix. Seeing as this is a mostly G rated blog, let’s stick to the sweet part. You can easily find the lovely Avril dress in the Spring Air Hunt 3 at Telsiope’s Couture. (Each item on the hunt costs $3L).

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
  • TMP

A New Spring Do!

No_Match not only has regular group gifts plus a room full of previous gifts at least once a month there is a discounted style for $100L/color. No_Home is perfect for spring. It’s a short style; almost pixie-like. Options with and without the hat are available. I think it’s really cute though my real life brother says it looks like my 2nd grade school picture, lol!

A few words about the Spring Air Hunt. The monies raised through the hunt support the International Kenya Scout Development Project. The aim is to encourage the development of the community of Nyandiwa (Kenya) and the areas surrounding Lake Victoria. The International Kenya Scout Development Project partners with Harambee Gwassi and sustains the relevant role played by working together with the population through sustainable and repeatable micro-projects that enhance local resources and local culture. It sounds like a wonderful project. You can learn more about it here.

Meow, Meow

Daily I check out the sale galleries for great finds. Like I need more stuff?? Today the thing that caught me eye in the $25L Tuesday pictures was this cute offering from Beauty Code. Just call me a crazy cat lover, I don’t care. The cute cat face cutout on the Vicky dress called my name followed by a few loud meows. It’s cute, casual, and kinda sexy.

I picked up some pretty curls and braids from No_Match. The No_Explosion hair is the latest group gift ($50L join fee). No_Match is my go-to hair store. Every wig is well crafted. Another thing to like is the variety of styles you can find there. It’s perfect for my unconventional tastes.

Another free Dubai gift is the sparkly ring from MarmeladnyGirl, Purity Bento ring. It’ll dress up any outfit. Yep, it’s that pretty.

Take the limo to Dubai and score some pretty freebies! The event runs until March 10th but don’t wait too long.

Fun in the Sun, Please

Tastic FF Gift Jan 2022_002 (1)

Though its been cold for us Southerners today is perfect for the beach. I admit I’m an ocean & beach child. Maybe I’m related to the Cousteau family.

A little lace

A little lace

Hello Fab Fam. I hope your week is going just the way you want it to! I had a nifty little surprise today while wandering the Grid. I found a New-to-Me store called “Nilsy”. And in that store is a ton of great freebies and Group gifts.

Like this little number “Nilsy Gift”,  It was originally a gift for the Shopping Maniacs group ( a very nice group for shoppers) But I just clicked on the box and received it, no group needed. I’ve seen this build before but this one is certainly one of the best. The textures are beautiful and feminine and the lace detail is so nicely done. In fact when I finished the picture, I liked the whole outfit so much I saved it in my “Outfits” HUD. 

I have no idea how long this goodie has been available or when it will be changed out. So hurry over if you want to add it to your closet too!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Voluptuous

A Little Bit of Indie

Indie Style 2.0
I like to give myself challenges.  I had a half hour over lunch to “work” in SL, and I committed myself to finding a cool outfit to share with you. For this challenge, I could rely on any of the 5 Minute or 1 Hour groups I belong to and any sales I ran into while at a store.  However, my cap was 100L for all parts of the outfit (clothes, hair, jewelry, and shoes).

Safyra‘s did not disappoint!  Within the first ten minutes, a 5 Lindens 1 Hour deal was posted.  I ran over quick and grabbed the very nice jumpsuit on sale.  She comes with lots of colors. But….while trying to dodge the incoming avatars, I looked around and three OTHER sales caught my eye.  The outfit above is the top from the Set 010 Sunday Sale (35L) which comes with a cute bra/shirt, skirt and boots (the bra, shirt, and skirt all have a color HUD; the boots do not) and the pants and shoes from the Janice set on sale (55L) which comes with a blouse and HUD for both.

Sizes:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Slink (for the Boots in the 010 package)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

I picked up the FREE!!! subscriber gift (a cool choker with a butterfly) at Zuri which went nicely with this outfit. I love the resizer on her jewelry. It makes everything so much easier!

I had picked up a bunch of No_Match gifts earlier in the day, so I decided to use my time to find the first hairstyle that went with the outfit.  This style is called No_Sea and comes with all of the different color fatpacks. This was a free group gift with 50L membership.

By the time I had picked out the hair and fussed with the colors, I only had 5 minutes left, so I ran over to my studio to snap this pose.

I managed to get everything I needed for less than 100L in the space of 30 minutes!  WOO!!!

Do you have a challenge in mind for me to do?  Hit me up in the comments below!!

trend Eliza GG

Being a princess can be quite exhausting. All that waving and smiling at the adoring crowds. And oh! Dealing with all the stuffed shirts over in Parliament. Blah, blah, blah, blah blah!

A princess is entitled to fun now & then and I found the perfect dress that flatters my princess body! And it reminds everyone that I am a Princess – it says so right on my dress!

If you’re interested get your tushes over there. Trend offers clothing and makeup for many mesh bodies and heads. Other great perks are the HUGE selection of group gifts and lucky boards.

This darling little number is the Eliza dress group gift.. It’s an entire fatpack with a color change hud so you can look yummy in your fav color. Who doesn’t love being a Princess? Well, maybe a Queen?
