We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!

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.

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

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.

Hachi & I

beach_011

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀

Sharing a Snack

Coming soon

There’s not much more I love in this world than puppies and horses.  Seriously, I could leave nearly all the human race behind and be on an island of puppies and horses, I would be one happy chickie!  Honestly, I talk more to animals, plants and inanimate objects than I do to other people most of the time!

Can you spell I N T R O V E R T?  lol!

Anyhoo!  Another thing I love is cute clothes that I can get for cheap or even better free!  Today I’ve got a super cheap cute outfit for you from Cremosas Store who is one of out Fab Free designers.  It is one of many in her store, this one is a romper that is overall style and soooooo cute for summertime!  This cute ensemble will cost you only 25L!  They do come in lots of different colors, but I chose purple.

It fits:

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

Epiphany Goodies

Hey gang,

Can you imagine I had *never* been to The Epiphany before this week???  So seriously what is wrong with me?  I had a *blast* and I found some awesome goodies to share with you.  I’m not sure how much longer Epiphany runs for so, if you want to go play in the plethora (my favorite word lately, can you tell??) of Gachas, go soon! But for the moment, let’s see what fun stuff I found!

You should always have a sidekick

My first fun goodie is my little Pomsky from HEXtraordinary.  He is animated and sooooooo cute (you can tell I have a thing by now for the pups!), he even looked up and what I was holding for the picture!  The gacha for these little guys is 75L

Speaking of what I am holding…

My sign, is from Nerth and was a 50L gacha.  Yes, I realize the whole pandemic is *finally* winding down a bit (yay!), but as an introvert, I have always hated people I don’t know getting in my personal space.  I mean, is it really necessary to bump me with your shopping cart repeatedly when we are both standing in line and the line is not moving?  I think the six feet rule should stay in place.  You stay in your space, I will stay in mine.  After all I have *always* followed this rule by staying out of the space of strangers, I think they should extend the same courtesy to me.  I *really* wanted to the sign saying “up for adoption” but didnt get it.  It would have been fun to see if anyone adopted me.  😉

The Jewels, Oh the jewels!

The lovely jewels on my forehead are from Okiya.  They were a rare from a 50L gacha.

Yes the backdrop too!

The building behind me is from ninety.  This was a 50L gacha.  It had all different buildings that you could use to make your own street!

Pugs & Kisses

Pugs n Kisses

The weekend is the perfect time to dress up and spend some time hanging out with a four legged date!  Heck, they don’t care if you dress up or not.  But it’s fun to dress up so I do.    This cute little guy comes to me courtesy of Dench Designs who are (is??) having a flash sale on them!  You get a plethora of pugs, for NOT a plethora of lindens!  This flash sale goes til Tuesday (great band back in the day!  lol), and you can get the puggies for only 32L!  If you can’t make it there by Tuesday (thats *not* a band…. that I know of.), then you can get the puggies for 60L.  Which is still a faboo price!  You just rez the pug bed and click it and choose what you would like the pug to be doing.  I made him sit so he could be pretty for my picture.  This is the ad which shows your pug activity choices:

For the love of Pug Ad

Each pug is indeed animated and soooo stinking cute!  They are perfect company for that at home with my pug date night!  😀  Grab the popcorn and a movie and get ready for lots of pugs and kisses from your little four legged date!

The Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat

Hello Fab Free, and Happy Weekend! I’ve got a quickie for you this Saturday morning that you’re going to love, so let’s get right to it. Jian has out the cutest Santa hats as group gifts. There are two versions, one with a puppy peeking out from under the hat, and the one I’m wearing with a kitten under the hat. Each hat has a touch menu with several color choices for the main part of the hat, and several fur textures for the kitten or puppy. Jian’s store group is free to join, and you can also still pick up their previous group gift.

Next up, I couldn’t resist sharing with you Cae’s Saturday Sale jewelry set. The beautifully detailed “Jingle” set includes pretty bow and jingle-bell earrings with a matching necklace. The set has a texture change hud with quite a few choices for the gemstones in the bow, and several metal options for the metal parts of the jewelry. At just 75 linden, you don’t want to miss this perfect for the holidays set at Cae.

That’s all for now, go get some!
