Celebrating March!

bubble_017

Hey gang!

March is just *full* of all sorts of celebrations.  St Patrick’s Day, Women’s Day, Springing forward and getting more sunlight (in the US anyway), sometimes Easter…the start of Spring!!  but I bet you didn’t know that there are a *plethora* of things to celebrate in March?  Here’s just a sampling for you:

  1. March 1 – Peanut Butter Lovers Day, Pig Day! and world compliment day.  This is the day you share some peanut butter with your favorite pig and say nice things about our planet.  😉
  2. March 2- Old stuff day.  I think they made this one for me.  I’m an old stuff.  lol
  3. March 3 – This one made me stop and go “huh?” If pets had thumbs day.  Who thinks of this stuff and who decides to make it an official day?  LOL  Someone said gee it would be nice if our pets had thumbs and someone else replied, yeah!  we should make that a day.  okayyyy
  4. March 5 – Cheese doodle day!  Yay!
  5. March 6 – All about the food today, its Oreo cookie day (double stuf I hope.  Though there isnt as much stuf as there used to be.  sigh) and frozen food day.
  6. March 18 – This is my day.  Awkward moments day!  Perhaps though since it is the day after St Pattys, all those extra awkward moments come from folks who are still drunk from the night before, or really really hungover and out of it.
  7. March 20 – Busy day this one.  International day of Happiness, Corndog day (woohoo!), kick butts day aaaaaand ravioli day!  So its a happy happy day with corn dogs for lunch, ravs for dinner and a whole lot of butt kicking in between!  Can’t beat that with a stick!  (oh wait, that day comes later in the month.  you’ll see.  😉  )
  8. March 21 – Crunchy Taco Day!  Viva Le Taco!
  9. March 22 – I celebrate this every day… Goof off Day
  10. March 23 – This *has* to be my favorite.  Puppy day!!!!  OMGGGGG  I adore puppies, and maybe for puppy day, Jian will *finally* make me the cute shih tzu puppies I have been requesting for over four years since I lost my sweet Tara and can’t find a comparable black and white shih tzu companion pup anywhere in sl!
  11. March 27 – Joe day!  Hats off to all the wonderful guys named Joe!  and hats back on to those Joe’s who are *not* being wonderful.  This is also Quentin Tarantino’s birthday.  Maybe his parent’s shoulda’ named him Joe.  Joe Tarantino.
  12. March 28 – Happy Birthday to Lady Gaga!  Who shares her special day with something on a stick day and the ever popular respect your cat day.  😉

Some of these give me ideas for some blog posts.  lol  But I should get to the matter at hand, I’m celebrating two holidays and an event in my photo today.  Obviously one is St Patty’s day, which I am celebrating with yet another faboo sneak peek of the Fab Free St Patty’s Day Hunt, courtesy of Fantasy Illuminations (Previously Fantasy China/Between the Stars), with the gorgeous sparkly wall decor she made!  I am also celebrating International Women’s Day courtesy of AMUI who made this cute inspiring top, which is free at her store, no group needed!  This shirt comes in:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody classic & curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Signature Alice
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Star
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Remember, The Fab Free Hunt starts the 16th and runs to the 20th.  All the items are under 5L so it’s gonna be a blast!  You can find all the information here!  So many great designers!  So exciting!!

Now I think that’s enough babbling for me for one morning.  😉  I’ll be back soon with more goodies!!

Keep celebrating!

Hey there Fabulouses! Today in my blog post I have some news from Rebel Gal!

Fine… Be September

FabFree: Fine, Be September
Hey there Fabulouses!  I am a little embarrassed to admit, that this week the Saturday Sale had me spending all kinds of lindens and my blog post on FabFree today is just a small indication of the many many 75L items I picked up.

Saturday lives on all week in SL

That’s right, in Second Life, The Saturday Sale runs all week… It just happens to start on Saturday, so if you are ever upset on a Sunday that you missed it, don’t be… You didn’t!  Most of the items are available all week at 75L.  That has been my experience anyways.  The Saturday Sale items that I am wearing today are Lamb’s out of control (much like my spending habits) curly hairstyle called Dream, with Rebel Gal’s Ayla Corset & Sarah Laced Up Jeans.

Rebel Gal Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

ps. The daisy in my hair is not included with the hairstyle by Lamb.  I just had it in my inventory and… it was cute.

pps. I can’t believe it’s September.  I tried so hard to hang onto Summer.

Don’t Forget The Peanut Butter Cups!

FabFree: Don't Forget The Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups… So messy, but totally my road trip staple!

Hey Fabulouses!  Remember when I sent you to R3volt last week to join the group for this sweet pair of shorts and knotted top as group gifts [HERE]?  Well…  It turns out, that the other group gifts that I picked up when I was there, are just as awesome!  All of them for just a one time fee of 200L to join the group.

As I am opening up more boxes and bags…

(I should really just open them all up at once…), I am finding more wonderful things to tell you about.  This Veronica V2 Dress for example, which is available as a group gift at R3volt is really nice!  It is a basic spaghetti strap mini dress, but one shoulder strap has fallen as shown in my photo.  You might recognize the same buffalo check print from my photo last week, but this dress also comes with a texture change HUD that includes a ton of prints and solids to choose from…  I just really like it!

Sizes Included

  • XXS – L Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
