Bird Watching

Bird Watching

When I was little, we lived across from a big field (quite unusual for someone growing up in the big city!) and there were always lovely birds coming to visit our backyard.  We saw Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Red Winged Blackbirds quite frequently.  I’d always race to the cupboard to grab my binoculars and our bird book to identify which feathered friends were visiting today.  That either sounds completely nerdy, or insanely cozy… perhaps it’s somewhere in between!  I found the perfect outfit for bird watching – and no binoculars were required to find it!

On Wings

In my travels around the grid, I came upon a shop that’s new to me called Zhora Design.  They currently have this super cute bird-adorned outfit out for free for group members.  Join their group for free, and pick up your own copy.  It comes with the adorable skirt, as well as an omega applier top which comes in several different colours.

Fashionably Dead also have a new group gift out – this really cute hair and hat combo that comes in a fatpack of colours that range from natural to well…supernatural!  I love when hats are included in hair packs these days, since we all know what hats used to do in SL – look like you were wearing a boat on your head!  This one looks perfectly natural with options to change the colour of the hat as well.  You can grab yours by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts out as well, making this group join super worth it!

Have a fantastic weekend Fab Free!

Life’s A Beach

Life's A Beach

I’ve never actually been to a tropical beach.  You know, the kind with palm trees and the smell of coconuts (or at least that’s how I imagine it), but I have been to Mediterranean beaches quite often.  I think that sitting on sand and seeing the sun sparkle on the waves really is one of the best things you can do for your soul.  And as I always say, when you can’t get to it in real life – then hop to a beach in SL, because there really are some gorgeous ones out there.  I went to Adele and had a lovely time on the sand.  You should too!

Well Suited

My bathing suit today (which quite frankly, can double as a little summer top, or very short shorts if you want to get creative) is by Scandalize and is a second group gift for an upcoming event they’re hosting called Vanity.  If you join the Vanity group for free, then peek into notices, you will find this lovely bathing suit that suits me just fine!

Pineapple of my Eye

Pineapple of my Eye

Are you ready to bulk up your wardrobe?  It’s always important to have a few basics to throw on – sometimes they make an outfit!  Well, Alaskametro and the Free Dove have teamed up to create a little fun free hunt so that you can have your own capsule wardrobe full of super awesome items!

High and Low

I went over to Alaskametro’s mainstore and searched the area for the hunt prizes which are found in shopping bags peppered around the shop.  Two of the prizes I found are this long tank top (which comes with 3 different textures) and these moto leggings that I think are super versatile.  You could mix and match all the prizes from this hunt and end up with some really stellar looks.  I’ve put the store ad below so you can see what there is to be had.  You will find half of the prizes at Alaskametro, and half of them at The Free Dove.  Best of all, it’s all free!

Beach, Please!

Beach, Please!

Life takes you down many paths – but the best lead to the beach!

Today, my path took me to the beach, and I had the perfect outfit for it.  The “Beach Please” (giggle) outfit was an exceedingly affordable 10 Lindens at The Wash Sunny Side Up Cart Sale.  Have you been yet?  There are so many fantastic things to be had.  I got my outfit at The Little Bat cart, and I couldn’t be happier.  I really love the cut of the top, and of course the sassy wording on it!  This cuteness comes in sizes XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Where does your path take you?

Tropical Nights

Tropical Nights

I’m feeling quite tropical today.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m craving things that smell like coconut and drinks that have flowers in them.  It’s quite possible that it’s this palm frond-adorned dress that I picked up… Whatever the reason, I’m ready for some full on summery weather, and a drink to sip while gazing at the waves!

The Next Chapter

I found some awesome gifts at this month’s edition of The Chapter Four.  It’s their anniversary, so there are loads of fantastic goodies to be had at the event!  Join the group for 10 Lindens, then take a walk around and find all the little pink boxes at each display.  I am wearing the offerings of N-Uno and Pr!tty.  The dress by N-Uno is a Maitreya Lara exclusive and I totally love the palms on the dress.  They make me so happy!  Pr!tty also wowed with their gift at The Chapter Four – there are two different hairdos in the gift.  I’m showing off the long flowing waves that is Avy.  It comes with a full fatpack of colours as well as rigged and unrigged versions so you can get the right fit.  Don’t you love it?

I hope things are warming up nicely, wherever you are!

Making A Splash

Making A Splash

Full disclosure:  I’m a bit of a nerd.  So, when I found these fantastic bathing suits at The Wash Cart Sale, I got mildly excited.  I can’t resist the R2-D2 print, and I also could NOT say no to the Tetris one.  I can’t.   The fact that they’re just 10L each is icing on the cake!

Candy Buttons

Candy Buttons

There will be days when you want to give up. There will be days where you want to stay in bed and hide.  And then, there will be days when the world tastes sweet, sweet as those little sugar dots you used to buy back in the day. I think they were called Candy Buttons.  You know – the little dots on white paper that you could peel off and eat?  I used to love those things, mostly because they were hard to find.  I found a dress, however, that reminds me of all the sweet treats and happy days of our youths!

Mini Hunt Alert!

How much do you love this sweet polka dot dress from Tatiko?  I absolutely adore the mesh panels on the sides, and of course the multicoloured polka dots that remind me of Candy Buttons.  I got the dress for 1L instore at Tatiko, as they’re having a mini hunt for spring!  Walk around the store looking for the potted plants (there are 5 of them) and buy the ones that you love for 1L.  There’s a poster up above the front desk showing what each one contains so you can shop around a bit!

You Can Never Have too Much Hair

Beusy currently have the hairstyle I’m showing off as a free group gift!  The “Lilac” hairstyle features two short braids that I think will come in super handy during the warm summer weather I’m sure will make an appearance soon!  This hairstyle features loads of natural colour options, as well as the possibility of removing the bangs and adding some wisps of hair.  You can grab your own by joining the group for free!  Yay!

I think I deserve a treat after all this writing!

A Fishing Anecdote

A Fishing Anecdote

I was trying to think of a fishing anecdote, since I’m featuring the fishing outfit currently available at Sn@tch today.  The only thing that came to mind was the time I took a little day trip outside of the city, making my way towards the small towns and lakes that reside about an hour North of me.  I packed up the car with some friends, and we jaunted off in search of adventure.  One of the more outdoorsy types among us decided bringing a fishing pole would be a spiffing idea.  Once out of the concrete jungle, we found a lake with a dock jutting out into it.  A few people had already set up, looking mighty professional about it all.  We sat down, and finally (after a bit of fussing with the poles), I was ready to go.  After a pleasant bit of time lazing with my feet over the dock, I felt a tugging at the line – I had caught a fish!  I was advised to reel it in, and up it came wriggling like mad.  I then proceeded to be the most ridiculous city girl of all time: I screamed, jumped up and let go of the line, fearing the small silver fish might get some of its silver scale juices on me.  Needless to say, the native country-dwellers were all rolling their eyes audibly, and I was rather pink-faced.

Get to the Goods

All my rambling about fish and poles and docks to let you know that my lovely outfit today (including hair, leggings, tank top, and lipstick) are from the current fishing prize from Sn@tch.  I really couldn’t pass up these amazing leggings, so I propped up at the fishing hole, without fear of any slippery fish actually making an appearance!  To get this lovely outfit (and several other items!) grab a 7 Seas fishing rod (it will set you back 100L), and hang out by the pond at Sn@tch.  You can use that pole to fish for all future fishing prizes!  Woot!

Get Outta The Way

Get Outta The Way

Right about now, I’d like to be the person in a movie who struts down the street in a completely unconventional outfit wearing insane heels and brandishing a baseball bat.  For some reason that’s a thing I’ve seen.  Think like…Harley Quinn.  She’s dressed up in the last outfit I would ever choose for fighting crime, but somehow she struts, does it with attitude, and kicks some posterior.  I couldn’t find a baseball bat today, so I settled with a hat that will tell the world how I’m feeling.  Bite me is a pretty good sentiment right now, and it replaces my baseball bat rather well.

The Nitty Gritty

My no-holds-barred attitude comes courtesy of NyDesign.  You can join their group for free, and pick up a bunch of gifts while you’re at it.  I really liked this bodysuit (you know me and bodysuits…) that comes with this cool cropped hoodie.  You can wear them separately, which would also be pretty fun, I think.  The bodysuit comes with several colour options, as well as the option of putting some semi-rude (ish) words and meanings on it.  I figured I’d let my hat do the talking for today, but by all means, you do you!

Making it Happen

Making it Happen

I’m going to make the onesie as clothing thing happen.  I will, you’ll see.  Come on, think of the positives:  You’ll be comfy all day, people will compliment you on your style, and ain’t nobody else gonna be dressed like you!  Trust me, it’s going to happen!

My Lucky Onesie

I got my onesie (which by the way, if you click on it, you can take bits off one by one exposing different parts of your body…cough cough) at Vanilla Bae.  They’ve got five lucky boards out with a plethora of different looks for you.  You can join the group for 100L and pick up all five prizes (with a bit of patience) and also there are two group gifts to be had at the moment!

My Empire

I’ve been a group member at Empire for a while – it’s one of those groups you join and just don’t leave because they come out with some really fab gifts semi-regularly (they aim for one every second month).  Sure, it’s 500L to join, but if you hurry over there you can grab all the gifts from 2017 as well as the January and March gifts (hurry though, apparently last year’s are coming down soon).  It’s a whole lotta swag.  This month’s gift are the Hazel shoes that come in a full fatpack of colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Now, me and my comfy onesie are making fashion magic happen.  Excuse us. 😉
