The Time Traveler

Time Traveler

Anyone who tells you Time Travel is a science, and not an artform, is a scoundrel. It is and must be both. You need to be able to finesse your way through multiple realities and get the calculations correct. For now, I’m going to slice through the curtain of time and get myself out of this Jurassic nightmare before one of these giant prehistoric lizards decides I might be a delicious meal. Safe travels my fellow voyagers.

The Engine Room 

Purely by happenstance I visited the Engine Room event. Lo and behold, it’s an Anniversary round! You guessed it, that means free gifts. Lots and lots of amazing free gifts. The theme is steampunk and the gifts are free with the Second Life Syndicate group tag. The group is free to join. I got all of them, and would have loved to show all of them to you, but that would just be tedious for everyone. Instead, I put together my Time Traveler look using the Engine Room gifts from Eudora3D, Apricot Paws, Wicca’s Originals, Deadly Nightshade, and Lux Aeterna.

Second Life Syndicate group: secondlife:///app/group/d35c55f4-6a4f-eb2d-1dae-af9665f6f4cd/about

Eudora3D

I think this hat from Eudora3D is possibly one of the coolest hats I’ve ever owned, and it’s absolutely free. The Witch Hunter hat is incredibly detailed. It comes with a hud that lets you change the metal parts gold or silver, and adjust the position and size of the hat. You’ll find this freebie waiting for you at the Engine Room event. Don’t forget the Second Life Syndicate tag.

Apricot Paws

My very Victorian-like blouse by Apricot Paws is also free at the Engine Room. It fits beautifully and I love the subtle pinstripes. This shirt comes in a tucked and a not tucked version for multiple wear options. This gift also has a hud that lets you adjust the color of the bow, the buttons, and metal bits.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya V-Tech, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Wicca’s Originals

The Havoc Mask is the free Engine Room Anniversary gift by Wicca’s Originals. This super cool accessory is unisex in that it comes in a male sizes as well as a female size. The details are awesome, and it fit me perfectly, however there are resize scripts in the masks.

Deadly Nightshade

I think this clockwork mechanism halo piece by Deadly Nightshade is so cool. Not only does it look cool with all the great details, it also has moving parts. The pieces attach separately so that they move independent of each other. That also means they can be worn all together or separately. This free Engine Room gift was the initial inspiration for creating a Time Traveling character.

Lux Aeterna

The golden scalpel and scissors by Lux Aeterna together are the first Engine Room gift I unpacked and knew I had to do something with them. They are gorgeous aesthetically, and have a macabre element that I really like. They also have these really awesome bento hold poses, that are just icing on the cake. You’ll find them for free at the Engine Room. Again, don’t forget to join the free Second Life Syndicate group and wear the group tag to get the gifts.

Video Games

Video Games

I can’t imagine anyone being at all surprised that I’m super nerdy a lot of the time and pretty proud of it too! This is also a specific instance in which I am perfectly okay with perpetuating a few stereotypes. Gaming headsets are nerd gear. Gamers are nerdy, and it is awesome. Glasses are sexy, and also nerdy. The two go together ladies and gents! Books, especially on a bookshelf with photos of space, also nerdy. I love it! lol Lastly, I happen to be wearing a group gift romper, which may not be a nerdy stereotype but it is super comfortable. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about my nerdilicious finds. Also, please don’t take any offense to my name calling. In my mind being a nerd is not a bad thing, and this is all meant to be in fun and not judgmental in anyway. ❤

Spoiled 

If you head to the back of the Spoiled store you’ll see some rather racy gamer girl outfits with accessories. One of those accessories are these winged gaming headphones. They come in a fatpack of color options with choices for coloring 2 parts of the headset, and they are completely free. Just buy them for nada, zip, zilch, zero linden.

BND

These adorably nerdy glasses are another Marketplace find by BND. These “Vintage” beauties by BND can be yours for just 4 linden. They also have a color change hud with options for the frames, lenses, and stem ends.

Someone Stole My Sign

The Geeks Unite event (a childrens/teens event) starts August 7th and runs for a few weeks. At this event you can pick up this “nerd” bookshelf set by Someone Stole My Sign (SSMS) for just 1 linden. The gift also includes an ottoman (not shown).

Chic Moda 

This cute low-cut romper is the August group gift at Chic Moda. This gift comes in three sizes, and has a texture change hud with six choices. The Chic Moda group is 150 linden to join.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Lioness

Lioness

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”
― Osho

“A lion doesn’t concern itself with the opinion of sheep.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

With today’s post I want to encourage everyone, myself included, to take the path of the lion. I understand that at times this is easier said than done. What inspired all this inclination toward courage and self love? My shirt believe it or not. This cropped tee was destined to become a staple in my wardrobe. It also happens to pair quite nicely with this earring artwork that has me kind of obsessed. I’ll tell you all about each of these fantastic finds, and hopefully you’ll feel a little inspired by them as well.

MicrO

The lion top is a 75 linden Marketplace bargain from a little shop called MicrO. I would encourage you to check there Marketplace store out. If the lion isn’t really your bag, there are several other versions available at MicrO with the same affordable price. I genuinely like the fit of this crop. It’s short enough to be sexy but I don’t feel like the girls are going to expose themselves if I move around too much.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara +upgrade, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Garmonbozia

I’m not sure how long  Garmonbozia has been around however I am excited about this new-to-me store find. Along with being aesthetically pretty, the jewelry there is truly wearable art. I even like that this free group gift earring is just a single earring, and not a pair. It’s eye catching and fierce. Though you can’t see it, I paired it with a simple stud in my other ear for symmetry. The Garmonbozia group is free to join.

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza Freya

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

Hello hello Fab Free’rs. Something occurred to me today. In my teens I might have worn this look to a party… now I still love the look, but I wore it to the farmer’s market. I think my age might be showing a little bit. lol Either way, I’m enjoying my Sunday and looking super cute doing so. I picked up just about everything for this fun style for free at the current round of ACCESS. It’s a birthday/anniversary round for the event and I have to say it’s the biggest round of ACCESS I have ever seen.

Aline did a gorgeous job of showing off some of the free ACCESS gifts as well in her recent pose “A Little Bit Boujee” so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. As she mentions, ACCESS runs from now until July 8th, and the ACCESS group is free to join so there’s time if the sims are full. There’s the main sim and a cam sim open. Now I have a lot to share with you, so let’s get to it!

Volthair

So technically this is a mens hairstyle from Volthair, but I love it anyway. Even Blue said it looked good, score! It comes in a full fatpack with all the color huds, and a hairbase hud for Catwa and Omega compatible heads. The Fitz hairstyle by Volthair is free at ACCESS. To get your copy you’ll need to join the free-to-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

I feel like this safety pin jewelry set by Fake Society is an updated much cooler version of the plain ol’ safety pins I once wore as jewelry. The set is also free at ACCESS, and it includes earrings (shown) and a septum piercing (not shown) in silver, gold, and black. I would definitely consider this set unisex. The septum piercing I felt was a bit big for my face even with some resizing, which is the only reason I chose to not wear it.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS gift by Cult. They are called the Rou rings and they are sized for Belleza, Slink, Vista, and Maitreya hands. This bento set comes in silver, and gold.

Movement

I couldn’t resist this fun tumbler drink by Movement. I love the little horns on the lid, and purple is a favorite color of mine. This cup has a bento hold pose, and can be sized via touch menu. It’s also another awesome freebie at ACCESS.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS gift by Sixx. This black pushed up crop top with the iridescent looking alien face is super cute. It is also somewhat revealing if you don’t wear something under it. I dug through my closet and pulled out an undershirt by Vinyl to wear with my Sixx alien shirt, and it worked out pretty well I think. Otherwise, be bold and show some skin!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

A ‘o ia!

A 'o ia!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

Swimsuit sizes Included:

  • His – Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature Gianni, Slink, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer
  • Hers – Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), eBody (Curvy, Classic), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Peace Love Music and Air Hockey

Peace Love Music & FoosballWaiting is always hard, especially when I’m waiting for Blue to get home so I can attempt to beat him at air hockey. The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ocacin, EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Pure of Heart


Pure of Heart

There is magic if you believe in it. There are also freebies galore if you know where to look. The current round of Hot Summer 35L Sales is an excellent place to pick up quite a few free gifts. You’ll find clothing, poses, and even some beachy furniture. Also, the items at the booths are either 35 lindens each or 50% off regular price. The event runs now through July 31st, and you will need to join the 35L Sunday group. However, the group is free to join. The hair and dress I’m wearing are both free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event.

The Hair

This cute pinned up hairstyle is a free Hot Summer 35L Sales event gift by DeVon. Just don’t forget that 35L Sunday group tag. The hairstyle comes in the single ash blond shade shown. I also want to mention that as far as I could figure, it cannot be resized, it can however be repositioned.

P.S. The DeVon Gift also includes a brown shoulder bag!

The Dress

This pretty little dress by Melt is another of the many free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 6 jewel tones and black, for 7 total color choices. It comes in several sizes, and has an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

  • Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink, Belleza Venus
