Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Happy Canada Day, Fabbies 🍁!  I know that the vast majority of our readers don’t necessarily hail from the land of maple syrup and poutine like I do, but we do have a dedicated set of readers out there – I see you, Canucks!  Anywhos, if you’re looking to celebrate the land of Inukshuks, Polar Bears, Anne of Green Gables, Nanaimo Bars, Beaver Tails, Ryan Reynolds, Hockey, The Northern Lights, Tim Horton’s, Moose, Canoes, Drake, Free Health Care, Mounties and about 50 billion other fun things… well, then this post is for you.  I salute you, Canadaland!

MP Trawl

Around this time of year every year, it’s my personal little tradition to trawl Marketplace in search of some cute Canadian gifties.  They’re not always easy to find, so an MP search can be a fun scavenger hunt.  There are a few I come back to every year, just because they’re so cute, and a few new ones I add into my repertoire.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L top by Shamrock Boutique sized for Isis, Freya, Hourglass, Jomo Fox, Jomo Werewolf, Maitreya, Physique and Venus with three different textures to choose from (Hi Dews!)
  • FREE glasses by Little Llama
  • 10L Headband by Sugarplum Boutique

There are quite a few other fun things – what will you put together?

Movie Night!

I’m getting straight up movie night by the lake at the cottage vibes from Kim’s Kreations today.  You all know how generous Ms. Kim is, and she’s gone and done it again with all sorts of Canadiana for you to set up the perfect night with friends.  You’ll find the whole movie night set there for free, as well as the balloon arch behind to decorate with!  There’s even a flyable balloon there that you’ll have fun zooming around places and yelling “eh!” at people from.  Trust me, I’ve done it.  Thanks Kim!

 

Have a wonderful day, Canada – you’re pretty awesome.

A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Verdant

I hear thunder outside my windows right now, which means that it’s time to hunker down in SL and think placid, summery thoughts.  In my mind it’s all lush greenery and giant popsicles, and I’ll fight you if you tell me otherwise.

The Greenery Part

Maai has a new group gift!  I love it when a plan comes together, and Maai seemed to be reading my thoughts when it came to this cute dress today.  The top and skirt can be worn separately, giving you lots of other outfit options.  Imagine this cute top with a nice pair of jeans!  Yum.  The Maai group is free to join, making this lovely set completely free!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

Not the Popsicles Part

Foxy is also back on the group gift train with this awesome hairstyle.  I joined the group for 100L, and picked up a fatpack of this sleek bob.  I love the hair clip holding it back.  You can also colour the streak in pretty much any shade you can possibly imagine.  100L is a great deal here, because there are other group gifts on the counter as well, so super worth the join price!  Get it!

Eep!  Thunder!

In the wind

In the wind

Hey FabFam, I know it’s late ( in my part of the world anyway) so I’m going to make this really quick.  As ya’ll know, the 2022 Hair Fair is going strong and hopefully you’ve visited. There are some awesome designers participating this year and many booths have a little gift for us. The best gift, in my opinion, is this lovely photo – op hair from No_Match.

This is “No Press” and you can grab it for free at the No_Match booth. The hair is static but it’s perfect for pictures. Which, you know… we do a LOT of! 🙂  Plus, you get a full fatpack of colors with No Press too. 

I wanted to sweeten my post up a bit, so I rummaged around on the Marketplace and found this cute little flower crown for just 10L! This the “Honey Flower Crown” from Sweet Intoxication. It’s an older build but it still looks very nice and I’m picky about such things. But this one is staying in my closet.

The Hair Fair runs until July 10th so don’t delay!

You Wanna Pizza Me?

You Wanna Pizza Me?

It’s not a secret that I love pizza.  Are there people who don’t actually like pizza though?  Are there people just like you or me roaming the earth proclaiming such nonsense as “I don’t like pizza”?  How can one not?  There are so many iterations of this lovely concoction that there must be at least one type that will be what you fancy.   Well, on that note… I’ll stop blathering about pizza and get you to the freebies!

Happy Anniversary!

Amias is celebrating 5 years on the grid with a 50% off sale and a new group gift.  The great thing about this shop is that they cater to both male and female avatars, so you’ll get a gift for both!  I couldn’t find a posing partner in time to make this post, but I’ll add the vendor photo below so you can see how cute it will be for you to pose with a partner and show the whole world just how you complete each other.  Awh.  The cuteness.  Anyway, the Amias group is free to join, and you’ll find a whole bunch of fun gifts on their group gift wall (including these gloves!).  Can’t say no to that!

Sizes

  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Legacy F

Freezie Run

Freezie Run

There’s something very 90’s about heading out in a slouchy pair of jeans and a miniscule top.  It’s all very TLC (like… the musical group) and makes me feel rather summery while harkening back to the days where you were on school break and heading off to the corner store to buy freezies while listening to your walkman blare tunes.  Welp, I’m dating myself again, but I’m ok with that!

Feeling Fair

You’ve all heard by now that Hair Fair is in full swing, with plenty of free gifts for all and sundry.  I stopped by the Sintiklia booth and got this very chic low and loose chignon bun.  There are quite a few options for the bangs, so you can make it your own quite easily.  I also added the free gift from Ersch which can also be picked up at Hair Fair.  It’s kinda like the Statue of Liberty when she heads out to rock clubs.  Anyway.  I won’t be headbutting anyone with this thing on, promise.  You don’t need a group to grab these items, just buy for 0L!

Another One!

Masoom is still currently free to join (until July 10th!) so make sure you get in while you can without the join fee!  This awesome top is the latest group gift that was put out in the last few days, and it comes in three different colours, including this pretty and summery ombre.  There are lots of other awesome gifts on the group gift wall, so go grab ’em!

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Reborn

Blue freezies for the win!

Monday Adventures

Monday Adventures

Hello and happy Monday, FabFam! Wow, what a weekend. I finally made it all the way through the enormous SL19B Shop and Hop. Twenty SIMs is nothing to sneeze at even if it was so much fun. And I don’t even want to talk about all the unboxing!  So let’s get started with one of my top favorite gift from the whole event.

This is the “Emilia” outfit from Zenith. (@ The Shop & Hop Location) This has always been one of my go-to designers and this lovely set is no disappointment. The top, sleeves and skirt are all separate pieces for more mix and matching. The build is top notch and you get a HUD with four different colors to choose from. So you’re looking sharp no matter what you pick!

Wrong Turn

Wrong Turn

I love a good road trip, but as you can see, I seem to have taken a wrong turn somewhere back there.  Plus, the car is also missing.  The shenanigans I get up to…I tells ya.

Hit the Road

It’s time for another awesome hunt over at Petite Mort & Oubliette!  These crop up every few months, and it’s always a fun one to do.  This time around you’re looking for Route 66 signs, and each one contains a cute item of clothing that goes with the hot summer on the road theme.  I’m showing off a great pair of jeans that was just 20L, and the tasseled top which is another 20L.  Every item on the hunt is under 20L, and you’ll be able to find all the hunting information and some hints (if you want them) by the landing point at Witchwood.  You’ll find the hunt key below!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

I think I may end up using this boat instead of the missing car!

Summery Shimmer

Summery Shimmer

Summer always makes me want to wear bright colours.  Orange isn’t necessarily one of my go-tos, but there’s something about a warm, iridescent orange is really lovely and summery.  Pair it with a cold drink, and you’ve got a great Saturday night!

Back at It

I’m still shopping and hopping all over the place!  SL19B rages on with more free gifts than you can shake a stick at.  And by that, I mean you’ll be rolling in freebies for the next who knows how long – no need to join a group, just click on the boxes!  Here are the goodies I’m showing off today:

  • FREE dress by [ADD] sized for Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya and Maitreya Petite
  • FREE drink by Bubble in both right and left hand holds

SL19B is running until July 10th, so you still have time to mosey around collecting all the goodies.

Cheers to Saturday Night!

By the Sea

062322 - By the Sea 01

Some days I wish I lived by the ocean. I could take walks on the sandy beaches and ride my bike on the boardwalks. Maybe I could do some window shopping at the local boutiques and grab a drink at a cafe. But, I do not live by the ocean…so I do these things inworld instead.

Cheeky Monkey Hunts – ‘All the Colors’

For the month of June, Cheeky Monkey Hunts is running a super fun hunt called ‘All the Colors’. You can see details and hints on their website. The hunt runs until June 30th at 12pm SLT. Each participating designer has three choices of prizes they can set out: 1L, 25L or 50L. The 25L and 50L prizes are exclusive to the hunt. You can find the starting point here.

  • My necklace and earring set and the bicycle are available from Loredana Loring of Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop. The jewelry is unrigged with a resize script and the earrings have a script in them that allows the colors to swirl and move! The bicycle is so cute! It can be used as decor and you can also sit on it, as there are 12 PG poses in it…split between male and female. Both items are 25L exclusives.
  • The tank top comes in a set of three colors from Mikki McLain of The Bold Llama T-shirt Co. It is a 50L exclusive prize. The set includes this black, a blue and a burgundy shade. They fit the following mesh body sizes:
    • Belleza
    • Legacy
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Reborn
    • Slink
    • TMP
    • Tonic

A few more things…

I wanted to grab a few other things that are currently free or super cheap, to style the outfit with. Can I just say, I could be…am guilty of stuffing my inventory FULL of gifts from the Marketplace!

  • The summery shorts I paired with the tank top are only 10L on Marketplace from a store I found called Gifts Home. They include an HUD that allows you to choose from four different prints and they fit several mesh bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink
    • TMP
  • My cute little sneakers are only 1L on Marketplace, from MH Unique Design. You can change the colors with the included HUD on them as well, with 10 print options. And they fit the following bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink
