Party Heart-y

Party Heart-y

Ok, I am officially ready to host a party for Valentine’s day… for myself!  I love these little improbable moments of getting dressed up in something really sexy and just getting ready to celebrate me.  Because as L’Oreal always said…. I’m worth it!

First

Ok, I’ve got two hunts for you today, and they’re both awesome.  Your first stop is Roslyn (and Rue), where you’ll be able to grab the lingerie, bag, glasses and headband I’m wearing.  There are also several other super cute gifts.  Just a heads up that I believe some of the gifts are for the Rue group – but I’m only showing the ones I got wearing the Roslyn tag.  You can see the rest in the ad below.  The Roslyn group is currently 250L to join, but I have to say it’s totally worth it.  Not just for this hunt, but also for the fairly massive wall of group gifts.  They have some fairly regular hunts too, so I recommend joining and staying in!

Lingerie Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Valentine's Day Store Hunt

Second

I was sooooo excited about this awesome hunt over at Elm.  I knew I really liked this store, but I was reminded exactly why as I wandered the store looking for envelopes.  The group is 50L to join, and you’ll be winning some really sweet Valentine’s Day decor that you see behind me (and more in the ad below).  The thought and care that has gone into these items and this hunt is truly apparent – I got all the feels when I opened the gifts and found the envelopes (that are the unpack HUD) had little love quotes and were just so pretty.  The type of thing I would totally keep forever in RL (and totally will in SL too).  Can’t recommend this store enough.  Really.  Check it out.  Head over to Elm now!

Elm. Valentine's Day Hunt

Both hunts are running through to Valentine’s Day!

Love is Everywhere

Love is Everywhere

Heyyyyy!  It’s Shop & Hop time!  I was just saying yesterday (as I travelled the 14 regions filled with awesome free gifts, sales and surprises) that I really love the Valentine Shop & Hop.  It may be my fave of all of the Linden events.  Then about 5 mins after that, I thought… you know what, I love them all.

Hop to It!

Shop & Hop can be a bit of a daunting task sometimes.  It’s so huge and there are SO MANY free gifts to pick up.  But, it’s definitely one of those good problems to have.  I did all 14 regions in about 2 hours last night, unpacked and went through everything to pick out my faves to show you.  To get these lovely things, there is no group join required, just click on the gift boxes in each display!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top and skirt by ViSion sized for Gen X Class, Gen X Curvy, Reborn, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Perky & Petite
  • FREE hair by No.Match in a full fatpack of colours.  You can also turn off the little hearts.
  • FREE bracelets by Ysoral (check out the closeup below!)
  • FREE coffee by Dahlia

Shop & Hop is running until February 19th.  It opens to the general public today, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair, it will calm down soon.  Promise.

Does it say you can’t enter yet?  Use this group for early access:  secondlife:///app/group/8db35111-979b-14a7-6a74-b47be86ce04f/about

You can all the details and direct slurls to each shop right HERE.

Have fun!

New York Breakfasts

New York Breakfasts

Ah, New York.  I was recently there for a little trip, and had a grand old time walking around in the city that never sleeps.  I’ll tell you two things I noticed about this massive metropolis… First of all, the honking never stops.  I wonder how people who live there manage.  I suppose eventually it all just becomes background noise.  Secondly, the people were really lovely.  I had some really nice exchanges with strangers, and I kind of thought it funny that NYC has this image of being full of rude people.  I’m sure they’re there somewhere, but the overwhelming sense was of people who are proud of where they live.  Also, I had a really great breakfast.  So, here I am trying to recreate the moment.

Breakfast at Aline’s

I nipped over to Wink Fair (which is a new to me event…and quite possibly a new event in general).  They have gifts at each booth for members of their free-to-join group.  Just activate your tag, and click on the gift boxes.  I had to tp in and out once to make the boxes rez so if they’re not appearing for you, do give that a go.  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • FREE dress and heels by AnasStyle sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE necklace by Shapes & Co. sized for Belleza, Ebody Curvy, Ebody Reborn, Kupra, Maitreya, Perky & Hourglass
  • FREE table and food by SR Store

Can’t seem to find how long Wink Fair is running either, so please head on over as soon as!

Ooh… is that gruyere?

Hey hey, Fab Fam! Are ya’ll done with your Christmas shopping in good ol’ real life yet:? I went out today and daaaang the stores are chaos! But I fought my way through and got some gifts. Now I’m retreating to Second Life for some relaxation. And by that I mean… shopping!

I went and hit up the Designer’s Outlet – Discount Sale Event today and foud this super cute Christmassy but not too Christmassy outfit. This is the “Fair Isle sweater” and “Patch Bellbottoms”  from Petite Mort, one of my favorite designs. There are a ton of tops and jeans to choose from and each one is only 50L. Not bad at all! Of course, if you love it the fat pack is also on sale at the event.  I can see myself wearing these jeans a LOT in the coming months.

Hello hello, FabFam! I can’t hardly believe that the end of the year is rushing towards us so so quickly. And it’s bringing the Holidays with it! We celebrate Christmas in our house but I hope everyone’s holiday of choice is bring them joy and celebration. One of the things I love about the holidays is all the parties. I love the food and the friends and family and all that fun. Plus, I may like the dressing up best.

Which leads me to the festive little number I’m, wearing tonight. This is the “Holly winter Dress Set” from Allure Couture. The set includes the cozy knit dress, the slinky boots and a pair of sexy little red panties. I found this cutie at the Posh Event and it’s free! Loads of the booths at the event have free or very inexpensive gifts at 1 to 10Ls. Just join the Posh Event free group and go collect your gifts. I actually got the Holly Winter dress without having my group tag on. In fact, several of the designers have set their gifts for everyone, no group needed. Merry Christmas to us, indeed!

The Posh Event runs until December 23 so don’t delay too long or you might miss out!!

Sizes Included 

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis

Cozy Up

Hey There, FabFam!  I know, I know, I disappeared yet again… I have a good excuse. Just as I was getting back on the routine of blogging… I got the flu! I was pretty sure I was dying or at least I wanted to die. Of course, I had to share it with the poor husband. So there was much plague on my household. I have survived but the coughing is still killin’ me. Bleh… anyway

SL has welcomed me back with one of my favorite events: The Arcade!  And there are several interestig machines this round like this cozy winter cowboy set from Meva. This is the Ashton outfit in beige. It also comes in black, brown and white. I wasn’t lucky enough to pull the beige version of the comfy pullover so you get to see the white version. I love the shearling along the vest’s collar and just the overall western feel to the set. And at 75L per play it goes easy on the wallet.

Sizes Available

  • Legacy Classic
  • Maitreya + Maitreya Petite
  • Reborn Classic

The Arcade runs until December 31rst so you have loads of time to get that Holiday shopping in!
