One Hot Summer

070822 - One Hot Summer 02

I am not sure about where you live, but where I live it is SO very hot right now. And it will be for the next couple of months. So diving into a pool, preferably in the shade if possible, sounds very much enjoyable about right now. And with a swimsuit like this…there is a double meaning to the word HOT!

Evil Bunny Productions is running their Beached Bunny Hunt for the month of July. The hunt starts HERE. You are looking for a sand pail with a shovel for sale for L$1. Here are a few other ways to keep up with Evil Bunny Productions:

070822 - One Hot Summer 01

  • My supah smexy swimsuit is the hunt item from one of my personal sponsors, Catherine Cloud of .Princess Stuff. I added the pasties from a different store under the top, but you can of course choose to wear it without any. This “swimkinie” fits Belleza Freya, eBody Reborn, Legacy, Maitreya/Petite, and Slink bodies. The hunt gift also includes a fun little rainblow floaty with a couples pose. Keep up with Princess Stuff here:

070822 - One Hot Summer 04

  • These fun sandals are from Grumble‘s hunt gift. They are fit for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. I kinda want a pair of these in RL. Maybe Allie Munro can figure that out for me, hehe.

070822 - One Hot Summer 03

  • And finally these beautiful eyes are the hunt gift from .lovelysweet. They come as BOM and also with two HUDs…one for Lelutka and one for Omega. There are nine color options to choose from!

Are you on the hunt for some great freebies this summer? I sure am! My inventory isn’t quite full enough!

A Flower for Bees

062122 - A Flower for Bees 01

Today was a lovely day for a walk in the woods among wildflowers and bees. I was feeling bright and cheerful for this photoshoot. I am super excited to be joining the FabFree team! I must say a huge thank you for the opportunity! Since its very early days I’ve been an avid (although mostly silent) follower of FabFree and now I get to join in on the fun as a blogger!

Womenstuff Hunt

Have you done the Womenstuff Hunt yet? If not, why not?! Hurry hurry because it ends June 30th.  The group is just 50L to join, and you’ll get so many amazing prizes.  You can read all the details on how it works in Bring on the WomenStuff by Caroline Walker. Be sure you don’t miss these other posts featuring the awesome prizes from the hunt as well:

Now let’s talk about what I’m wearing from the hunt…

  • My vivid pink outfit is from Vulnus by owner Vᴜʟɴᴜs (vulnuscouture). The blouse and pants are two separate pieces that come together in the hunt object for free. They are made to fit Freya, Hg, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink bodies. Vulnus is one of the sponsors for the Womenstuff Hunt.
  • The free jewelry set is from ZanSarai of Luminesse. You can click the necklace or earrings to bring up a menu that allows you to change options such as brightness, size, shininess and glow. Since it comes unrigged, the resize option is super nice.
  • C’est la vie, owned by Larcoco Ragu (larcoco.mathy), has this lovely free headband as their hunt prize. It is unrigged with a resize script and comes with an HUD that allows you to choose between 12 plain and 12 patterned textures.
  • And the adorable little pink hearts on my cheeks are the free prize from Silent Alchemi of -Birth-. They are unrigged as well and come with a tintable version if you would like to have them in a different color. -Birth- is also a sponsor for the Womenstuff Hunt.

Check out a close up for details…

Hey Fabbity Fabs!

Been going through more of my goodies from Shop & Hop and did a bit of mixin’ and matchin’ for y’all!  It’s always so much fun when Shop & Hop comes to town, though our inventories need to be burped after, from being so overstuffed after!  Nonetheless, I have a bunch of freebies so that all our inventories can burp in unison and the entire grid will need to be restarted (I hope not!)!

An Unexpected Surprise – Unisex Goodies!

Aren’t my roses and box of candy just adorable?  They are part of a pose set from PosED which is a free gift at Shop & Hop (called Unexpected Surprise!  Did ya see that one coming?).   It is unisex, so the guys can get in on the fun too (hey, they deserve roses and candy too those men of ours!).  My cute necklace is also part of a free unisex giftie from FashionNatic, they call it a broken hearts necklace but since you can wear one half, and you other half wears, well, the other half… I see it more as a connected heart.  They match up together and can be customized with any initials you like.  They fit Legacy, Maitreya and Kupra for women and Gianni, Jake and Legacy for the guys.

My cute top is a free gift from QE and fits:

  • EBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Fine
  • Curvy
  • Venus

It also comes with a 3 color HUD.

Last but not least, these cute pants are from Ghee and are also a free Shop & Hop gift.  They fit:

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

Be-Boppin’ & Shoppin’!

sdval_001

Hey Gang!

It’s that time of year once again, when there are hearts and cupids all around and the world is blissfully pink (ok and red, black, white, purple…)!  Now, Valentine’s Day has not notoriously been my best holiday (I got dumped once, when I was 20, on Valentines Day.) but nowadays, the abundance of so many things pink makes me like it so much more!

It’s also the time of the year for another Shop & Hop.  Squee!  I actually got a late start with it and haven’t gone through everything yet, but I’ve got a couple of things for you to whet your appetite a bit.

As they say on Big Brother…. “But first”, I have a little something for you from Astralia.  If you are one of their Very Important Unicorns, this super cute boba tea bear is the new free group gift.  You have a choice of several sayings, the one I chose made me giggle so it was a keeper.  The Astralia group is 149L to join.  This came in very handy while I was running around Shop & Hop at top speed.  I got very thirsty!

Here is a close up of it for you:

Now on to Shop & Hop

I wanted to put together a cute Valentine-y post and what better place to scoop up a poop load of goodies than Shop & Hop?!  This cute backdrop was a free gift from M-BdP.  It comes with some cute poses built in including a “Will you marry me?” pose!

These smexy shoes and stockings are the free gift from Aurora and fit:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Signature Alice

There is no group required to scoop up the freebies at Shop & Hop, but leave yourself plenty of time because it will take you a good while to peruse the entire mall.

Happy Shopping & Hopping kiddos!

I Want Candy

Candy Girl

Hey gang!

It’s the last week of Cozyfest so I wanted to sneak in two more of my amazing 50L finds.  I’ve been hermiting the last day or two watching a blizzard dump snow on my rl home.  We have a good foot and a half, and its a whopping 15 degrees and still pretty windy at about 19 mph (wind chill of 3 degrees) as I write this, so I’ve just had some of the chocolate chip cookies I baked today and some hot chocolate with rum to warm up a bit.

My second life self has been enjoying some of the same, some chocolate bars and donuts on a stick for her (made me wonder how you keep the donut from falling off the stick once you have eaten a decent amount of it.  I would think it would take a tumble right off.)  Either way I’m just a gal with a sweet tooth, and I do love those candy bright colors too.  So let’s get to the goodies I found for you, neither of which have anything to do with bright colors or candy!  Huh.  Go figure!

Let’s talk about these amazing boots.  These boots are from Friday at Cozyfest, they are of course 50L and you have the option to wear them without the lights but I got them *for* the lights cause if I could just drape myself in glitter and fairylights, well.  That might be downright blissful.  They fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Now the build I am standing in is by Lemme, also 50L at Cozyfest.  This cute pink cabin comes in a lighter pink or a darker pink and is just super cozy and cute.  It was pink, so how could I say no?  Like Aline, I have a bit of a fetish for houses and buildings, a girl can just never have enough!  Add pink in that mix and well, you’ve got me doing some heavy breathing!  I chose the lighter pink one, the shade just appealed to me more, but I absolutely adore it!

Now, back to my yummy warm drink and perhaps a nibble more of the cookies!  Hope y’all are staying toasty too!

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

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.
