Hey Gang,

Flying Monkeys and Cute Fall Outfits

coming soon

Hey gang!

Both real life and second life feel like they are pulling me in ten directions each. Literally, I feel like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Remember when the flying monkeys pulled him apart and threw him all over the place? Well right now both lives are my flying monkeys. Anyone got any flying monkey spray handy? (and how many times can I say flying monkeys in one post, eh?)

Whimsical Delights

At least I snuck in a little bit of time to wander the magical pathways of the Secret Garden Event. Alas my friends, I spent far more than was wise, but there were so so many whimsical delights waving to me from those Nextup machines. Saying “I’m next, look how wonderful I am, you know you must bring me home!” Well, who am I to argue?

So I put on this cute outfit from the MOoH! nextup and headed out for a walk. I’ve got the key for you below so you can see the entire batch of goodies. I wanted to wear the knee socks but for the life of me I could not figure out my layers in my mesh body. Sometimes I can get them to work and sometimes, well, let’s just say it ain’t pretty. So my apologies to Dalraida over at MOoH!

This outfit fits maitreya only but it comes with everything, even the hat (you have to get each item in the machine though and mix and match them). I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and since I am homeless at the moment, I’ve been traveling around in this and had several compliments as well as people asking me where I got the outfit.  It’s 50L per sale and there’s also a copy/mod fatpack at a discount.

More soon gang!  Hope you are staying toasty warm where ever in the world you are!

Spoop-diddly-umptious!

troubled_005

Hey gang!

So after three days of trying, I finally got into FLF-O Ween.  Yep, three days.  Nearly landed me in the loony bin.  Oops!  Did I say *nearly*.  I meant to say…. *clearly!*  As you can see, my head is spinning quite a bit from all those teleports to nowhere via my retry HUD.

Oh yes, and I’ve donned my bunneh mask and grabbed my lucky bunneh voodoo doll for comfort too (any guesses who I am using it on?  hee hee), oh and a perfectly *spooky* t shirt, so cute!

As a side note, I noticed lately, that spooky, sometimes becomes spoopy.  What is the difference between the two?  Spoopy to me sounds like what ghosts make when they use the little ghouls room.  Be right back, I gotta take a spoopy!  Or a speepy?  That will be the word for next year, you just wait!

But I digress!

Back to the matter at hand.  I’m showing y’all today the plethora of goodies I managed to spoop (erm I mean scoop!) up once I got into the Flf event.

My spooKy shirt (not to be confused with the little wet spoopy ones!) was so cute and that was a free gift (the gifts are free, but you do need to join and activate the Fifty Linden Fridays group, which is free to join) from Nectarine, and it fits Maitreya.  My pants are a free gift from Jeune by Rowne.  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Physique

My shoes are adorbs and they are from Schadenfreude, another freebie at Flf and they fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Mask is from Aleutia (free).  (lots of designers with tricky names lately!)  My cute (and useful!  wink wink) voodoo bunneh is by Luas (another freebie).

Lastly my backdrop was a 50L find by Milk Motion.   There is much more to it than what I got to show here.

FLF-O-Ween runs til November 1st.

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

Weekend Sweetness

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Sometimes on the weekend you just wanna lay around and feel sexy.  Or maybe just lay around and feel cute in general. ORRRR you are maybe a party animal and you just need something to wake up in and maybe try to look like you don’t have a hangover.  Whatever the case may be, I gotcha covered!  I found this cute little number (your tushie is mostly out in the back) for just those purposes (not to be confused with porpoises!  I’m sure dolphins aren’t really bothered by what we are wearing!) for free at the Sugar Dolls lucky Boards.  There is no group required, so yay!  And they have a number of cute goodies for you to grab when your letter comes up.

This one fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Happy weekend!

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

Where the Magic Happens

Coming soon to fab free!

Well hello there peeps!

Yes you guessed right, this is indeed where the magic happens. This is my in world blog writing place. It is a mirror version of my real life blog writing place which also has a pink desk and accessories, a pink gaming chair (though this in world one looks a lot cushier than my real life one, which after only a year and a half, has begun to fall apart, sigh.)…. my in world one also has a better view, as the real life one faces…. a wall. Lol. Nonetheless I have tried to make them mirror one another, as the me in second life is just like the me in real life.

Let’s Get this Party Started

So here I am about to sit and try to get as much done without getting distracted as I can. You might think my cup holds some coffee, but true to my oddball-ish-ness I can’t even stand the smell of coffee. So if it is cold out, this cup might hold some yummy Starbucks hot chocolate (which is ah-mazing!) or on most days lately, my newly discovered caffeinated water. I throw a little flavor packet in it, some ice, and I am good to go. Something to wake my little non morning person self up.

To the Business at Hand

Two photos for you today gang since I couldn’t decide. I happened upon a cute little shop called Hanatsumi. The outfit I am wearing above is from their lucky board (the group is free to join). It comes with a HUD that has 15 texture choices each for the sweater and the skirt (so cute!) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

 When the Working Day is Through…

Coming soon to fab free!

When the working day is through it is time to just chill a bit.  I’m a comfort girl and I like my space to feel and be like a little haven for my weary soul (when you get to be my age, your soul shall be somewhat weary too!) So I just flop right down on my yummy pink couch (more on this below!) and ponder on how my day went and how I can improve on it tomorrow.  You see, I am very good at planning all the wonderful things I will accomplish *tomorrow*, however, when tomorrow becomes today, I unfortunately sometimes feel myself very unmotivated, and those many wonderful ideas suddenly don’t seem all *that* wonderful.  But at night, oh!  the possibilities are endless!

This second outfit that I am lounging happily in, is the free Hanatsumi group gift (again, group is free to join) and is perfect for laying about and looking/feeling sexy while you ponder, overthink or let your mind go blank.  The choice is of course yours!   It comes with a HUD that has 10 color choices plus five for the diamond in the front and it fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Oh the Blissful Pink Couch!

Yes this is another free group gift from Careless, our favorite under 50L furniture shop that we fab free girls love to shop at!  The group is free to join as well, and there are a myriad of group gifts on the wall.  If pink isn’t your thing (blasphemy!!!) then there are 12 other colors you can get this living room set in (yes it has adult too), each set costs (are you ready?) 25L!  The poses are fab, the furniture is well made!  I might need to go through her shop again and re-do my entire little house!  Every time I go she has added more yummy newness.  Gosh, you really can’t go wrong!

This is plenty from me for now!  Happy shopping!  😀
