Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

I love the 80’s.  I’m sure I’ve rambled about it before, but there’s something about that decade that really makes me happy.  It could be the madness of the fashion, it could be that amaaaazing music, the music videos peppered with vacant expressions…. or the fact that it was just a little simpler because the internet wasn’t really a thing yet.  I guess that’s a bit weird coming from someone who inhabits a virtual world, but once in a while I long for a bit of time where nobody can get a hold of me.  To be fair, the positives outweigh the negatives for the most part.  I’ll tell you what I do really long for…. massive shoulder pads.

Power Stance

Ok maybe not, but it WAS a total power move to have big shoulders, and pencil thin pant legs, right?  Just roll with me here, I promise I have a point… I think.  Whatever the point is, this iteration on an 80’s theme by Quinnty’s is just so stinkin’ cute that I feel like I’m back in my parent’s house dancing with my dad to a 45 of “Dancing With Tears in my Eyes” by Ultravox.  It’s a whole mood.  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then paying the vendor 1L which will be returned to you (or click, then click the word deliver on the menu that pops up!).

In the Name of Love

These cute banana-inspired earrings come straight from the wonderful Afterparty.  The neon revolution is in full swing there, and you can take part (and take part in Pride celebrations too!) with these sweet free earrings that you can grab by clicking on the vendor (no group join needed!).  There are loads of awesome gifts at Afterparty, so check those out too while you’re at it.

The Chop!

The cute hairstyle that is also making me feel very “that chick in Ferris Bueller’s Day off who spits the coke in Mr. Rooney’s face” (holy niche reference…) is free from Kokolores!  You can pick up your own over at the Hair Fair, no group join required, and it comes in a full fatpack of fun colours.  Check out the Hair Fair today!

Get What You Need

Get What You Need

It’s time for a mid-afternoon treat, I think.  I wouldn’t normally recommend eating hazelnut spread directly from the jar, but sometimes… a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do in order to not go completely bonkers during a global pandemic.  Or you know, on any given Thursday!

Feel the Love

There’s another new group gift over at Love right now, and it’s a collab with Lust this time!  Yeah, yeah…Love and Lust, giggle it out.  Anywhos, this cropped top and panties set has loads of different options in the HUD, including lots of fun words you can have emblazoned upon your chest.  I went with “Alien” because I can’t count how many times I’ve been called Alien when fingers are typing quickly.  I take it as a compliment, usually.  The Love group is currently free to join, but not for too much longer, so do head over to pick this up as soon as you can!

New phone, who dis?

It’s the weekend, so that obviously means that it’s time for a bit of fun.  Perhaps your plans include a bit of dancing, a bit of shopping or a bit of relaxing.  Mine involve all these things, but I’m starting off with a bit of hunting!

Weekend Hunt

Things over at Safira have been a bit quiet recently due to that pesky RL thing getting in the way.  Since that’s all calming down, they’re coming back with a bit of a hunt to kick things off!  It’s only running this weekend, and it’s quick and easy.  You’ll find lots of cute springy items that are each priced at 15L.  I picked up the Indy dress which is a pretty denim look with a cute scalloped hem that offers just the right girly punch (there’s also a floral version in the box!).  Look for the little pink “s” that is hiding throughout the store.  Don’t wait too long to take part in this hunt, it will all be gone by Monday!

Make it Every Day

Make it Every Day

I’m about to go on a rant about how Valentine’s Day is every day.  Sure, it’s trite, people who avoid the holiday say those very words all the time to justify not buying into the commercial aspect of it all, but it is rather true.  It’s all about making time for that special someone!  You can cover that someone with kisses, Valentine’s Day or not!

One Hand in my Pocket

HolliPocket are having a bit of a clear-out sale right now – all their items are currently 40% off, and some of their older clothes are heading off to the retirement pile.  Along with all that goodness, there are two new group gifts:  this slinky little bralette top in two different versions  (one is a bit more transparent) in six different colours, and the kisses tattoo that meanders down my chest and back (with Omega and Maitreya appliers, as well as BOM system layers).  The even better news is that the group is temporarily free to join until March 12th.  Don’t wait!

Cool Girl Style

Cool Girl Style
There’s nothing quite as cool as a patterned, oversized blazer.  I think you kind of have to be a “patterned oversized blazer” type of person to make it work, and today I have become that person.  I feel powerful, cool, and even like I can take on whatever in this look.  Do you feel like you need an injection of cool-girl style?  I’ve got just the item for you!

Kustom Made

You guys know me and Amitomo.  If they’re making it, then I’m totally into it.  It’s my absolute fave thing to play their gachas, because they are always so pretty and well made, and whenever you play, it’s a given that you’ll end up with a full outfit.  I headed over to Kustom9, and played only once (I do it for FabFree science, I promise) and ended up with this sweet outfit!  At just 69L per pull, you really can’t say no to a full outfit (sized for Maitreya).  It also came with an HUD to change the shorts and top colour, so you’re really ending up with several looks in one.  If you’re feeling particularly lucky, try playing a few more times for the Rare hair.  I didn’t get it, but you just might!

Good luck, cool girls!

Christmas Eve Goodies

Christmas Eve Goodies

Happy Christmas Eve FabFree!  I’ve got MORE lovely free hair for you today, and a time-sensitive hunt, so let’s hop right in!

Joyeux Noel

There’s a new group gift at Yomi!  I suuuuper love this pretty and Christmassy hairstyle!  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and you can change the colour of the ribbon on top.  How sweet is that?  Also, as a bonus there’s 1000L in store credit for group members on the vendor near the front desk.  The best part is, the group is free to join!  Update:  These gifts were so popular the vendor system crashed so you will be able to find the hairstyle in group notices for now!

Join the Yomi group by copy and pasting this into local chat:

Quick!

Dami have a fun little hunt going on at the Love Game sim.  Join the group for free when you land, then search for the little red bags around the sim.  I picked up this fuzzy dress (sized for Maitreya) by Dami completely free!  It comes in three nice Christmassy shades.  You have to hurry though, it ends today!  Go go go!

Happy Christmas!

Like a Black Widow, Baby

Like a Black Widow, Baby

I’m kinda getting my metaphors (sorta) mixed today with my bodysuit and veil.  But I figure, if I’m going to be a black widow…I may as well be both the one who lost her partner, and the one who fights crime at the same time, right?  I don’t know…whatever it is I’m doing I’m quite enjoying it!

Fighting Crime

I love me some Marvel, and especially Black Widow.  She’s so cool, and her hair is always perfect, even when she’s kicking some posterior.  This bodysuit from Nanika *kinda* made me think of her, though the blood spatters are a bit worrisome… Anyway, you can pick up this terrifying item from their store (it also comes with a matching pair of stockings) by joining their group for just 50L.  There are several other very nice gifts on the wall while you’re at it, so make sure you grab them too!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

Tears for my Beloved

This long, creepy and quite beautiful veil comes courtesy of Belle Époque.  They’ve been so awesome with their gifts recently (as they usually are!) and I just had to have this latest one.   To have all your dark widow fantasies come true, just join the Belle Époque group for 10L and click on the vendor.

Watch out…you might be next!

Dark but Whimsical

Dark but Whimsical

I love a good costume.  What I like even more is to mix elements of costume in with every day clothing.  You know, a cat ear here, a tutu there… The whimsical never fails to turn a regular day into something a bit more special.  Today I’m mixing up a bunch of dark elements together to make an outfit that just makes one smile.

More Trick or Treating

I told you yesterday that there were free gifts to be had over at Trick or Treat Lane.  I couldn’t resist showing you two more finds I picked up there.  You’ll remember that you don’t need to join a group to get these gifts, but some of the stalls will have you do a bit of searching for your prize.  If you see a little ghost outside, he’s hidden your gift inside.  I’m showing you Alaskametro’s fun tights that come with classic system layers as well as an Omega applier.  The shirt is the second gift, from JR Wolf, which I had to immediately put on.  It comes sized for Alice, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Physique and Venus… and will have you hallo-ready lickety split!

You’ve got until November 1st to pick up the goodies from Trick or Treat Lane!

Born to be Wild

Born to be Wild

A wild animal print is sometimes all you need in order to make the day just a little more exciting.  If it’s oversized, even better!

Two for One

There are two new gifts out at Rosary!  This awesome dress (which you can wear as two separate parts) as well as the long nails.  The dress comes with loads of colour and texture options in the HUD, so you can mix and match and go just a little crazy.  The nails have 6 different colour options in a cool marble-like design, and there are several different length options if you want to go a little more practical (or less!) these bento nails are fitted for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy and Slink hands.  To pick up these gifts (and one other!) join the Rosary group for 350L.  The price might seem a little steep, but they are very generous with their monthly gifts making this a good group to join and stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Abstract

My Picasso-inspired face earrings come courtesy of Teabug!  They’re completely free on Marketplace right now and I am kind of obsessed.  There are black, gold and silver versions in the box, making this a really awesome gift!  Sweet!

See  you wild things later!
