Cover it in Rainbows

Cover it in Rainbows

Aren’t rainbows awesome?  Not only do they represent both Pride and peace, they’re also just really pretty.  I could probably wear rainbows every day of the year and be as happy as a clam.  The moment June rolls around, I am busy flitting all over the grid picking up as many of these ROY G. BIV creations as I possibly can.  It may be a bit of an obsession!

In the Name of Love

The latest group gift from Luas has hit the scene, and I must say that I am entirely obsessed with it.  The dress and shoes are both included in this awesomeness.  The dress comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty colours, even one option that makes the dress fully rainbow (yes!), so you’re sure to find something that floats your boat.  The Luas group is 50L to join, and you’ll find a whole huge wall of awesome group gifts there while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky

Just as an aside, my nails are also pride themed – you can get a huge nail applier set at Alaskametro for just 75L – it comes with so many options, and they’re just so pretty that I thought you might want to have a look!

Rainbows everywhere!

Proud of You

Proud of You

Sometimes it takes a bit of doing to be proud of who you are.  There are days where everything seems a bit off, and no amount of cheerful self-appreciation will shift that icky feeling.  However, one must soldier on.  Bit by bit, one gets to the point of loving one’s own quirks and foibles.  I for one, am pleased with my penchant for collecting piles of stickers, for painting my toenails blue and for always skipping a step on my way up a stairwell.  Sometimes it’s something deeper, like how we look, who we love or what we stand for – so dig deep and be proud of who you are, because you’re unique from the top of your head down to your blue toenails.

Miss Thang

One of my absolute faves, Miss Chelsea, is back with a new group gift for Pride.  This cute tank top (love those added safety pins) comes with an HUD to change to two different textures (check out the vendor below) and looks just super cute.  You can get yours by joining the Miss Chelsea group for 100L, then clicking the vendor on the front desk (sometimes things take a while to load at this location – a quick tp in and out usually sorts it for me).  There are plenty of other gifts on the counter too, so totally worth it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

And Beyond

I picked up this jean skirt that goes perfectly with my new top over at the WIP Event.  As I mentioned yesterday, you’ll find lots and lots of free gifts there in celebration of their 1st anniversary.  You’ll find this jean skirt at the Beyond booth, and I’m sure you’ll be able to pair it with a great many different tops since it’s so versatile!  The WIP Event runs until June 22nd.

Sunflowers and Daydreams

Coming soon to fab free

It’s getting closer every day to summer, but it doesn’t much feel like it where I live.  Not only are we coming out of the pandemic still, but its cold, overcast and rainy.  Ew. Not very appealing for a time of the year that usually sees folks spending time outdoors, grilling and having a nice bit of fresh air.  It is also a time for those outdoor get togethers. As an introvert, I don’t mind it at all.  I would rather this than have to go sit at someone’s barbecue that I really don’t want to be at.  That sounds worse than it is, I think.  Remember, an introvert wants to be invited, with the option to not have to go.  Social events are draining for us, though we love seeing friends and family, an entire day we are forced to endure gets to be a bit much, especially if there is nowhere for us to escape to for some quiet recharge time.

So today you find me lounging amongst the sunflowers to show off my finds for you!

High Tides & Good Vibes!

I do love the beach. The sound of the ocean, the smell of the salt water, the wind in my hair and some squishy sand between my toes. I prefer a quiet natural beach to the insanely packed ones. I love the beaches up in Rhode Island. So beautiful with lots of those smooth pretty rocks I love to collect (I admit I have far too many). I also love to collect pretty hunt items and I have one for you today. I found these cute jeans in the High Tides & Good Vibes Hunt at Pink Funk.  This is a 1L hunt, but each designer has a choice to also offer a 25L item, this item is a 25L item, but they also have a cute dress out for 1L.  This hunt runs from June 5 to June 30.

They fit:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Well That’s Just Tops!

The cute top I paired it with is a freebie from the Beauty Event, which has about a bazillion (ok it just *feels* like a bazillion!) free gifts (no group required!) this round to celebrate its anniversary.  I’m still going through them all!  This freebie is from MOW.  It has a HUD that has 10 fabrics for you to choose from.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Beauty Event runs until the 11th of June.

But Wait!  There’s More!

My shoes and necklace are both dollarbie market finds to finish up this super cute outfit.  My shoes are by Lacy’s Apparel and they cost me 5L.  They come in 8 colors and fit Maitreya.  My necklace is from Romazin and that cost me 1L!  Such cute well made stuff!

The Problem with Modern Art

The Problem with Modern Art

Time to do a bit of random wandering by myself today.  Some days I just need a bit of peace and quiet so that I can face the onslaught of humans who generally clamour for my attention.  So, off to an art gallery I go to ponder over the meaning of modern art.  Full disclosure, I am not a modern art kind of gal.  I’m all about the Botticellis and Waterhouses of the world, but sometimes…I head towards the modern art section if I need a giggle.  I’m sorry to all the aficionados out there, but I can’t keep a straight face when someone puts a chain link fence in a museum and tells me I need to seek it’s deeper meaning.  But…I will have a private chuckle.  😉

Happy Anniversary!

Ah yes, FabFree…time for another event stuffed to the gills with free goodies for us!  WIP Event is celebrating one year of existence, and for that we must toss some confetti, and grab some free gifts!  Join their free group, and then click on the gifts at each booth.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Dress by To.Kiski sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass & Physique
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink & TMP
  • FREE Phone by Tantrum
  • FREE Necklace by Modish

There’s so so much more to discover there, so pencil it onto your weekend to do list!

Ooh, look a giant hamburger posing as modern art!

Here a Mooh, There a Mooh, Everywhere a Mooh Mooh!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I have so much wonderfulness for you today courtesy of MOoH!  Let’s begin underwater, shall we?

Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter…Under the Sea!

(You’re singing it now, aren’t you?)

There is a wonderland of fun and fabulous gachas at MOoH!, this is just one of them, the Mermaid Gacha.  It is only 50L a play and let me tell you, these items are gorgeous and you will be heading underwater before you know it to sing siren songs and collect up some studly unsuspecting sailors of your very own!  The key is below so you can see all the amazing things you can get to mermaid yourself!  (that’s like a very non insulting insult.  Hey!  Go mermaid yourself, huh!)  The rainbow color I am wearing is the RARE (for the *extra* studly sailors!  Hee hee).

MOoH! Mermaid gacha

This outfit fits:

Tail:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Bra/Chains:

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

My very mermaid-y hair is from No.Match, it is a free group gift (group is 50L to join, but when I tell you for that 50L you can get well over 40 group gifts for both the ladies and the guys. I’m not whistling dixie y’all!)  It’s a really hairy group!  In this case that’s a good thing!!

My Makeup is from MOCK (eyes 40L on Marketplace) and Freebees (Lips free!).

Can you say MOoH!-licious?

I am such a sucker for all things bohemian.  Both in second life and real life!  MOoH! is participating in the Peace by Peace Hunt and they have this absolutely adorable boho style dress as their prize.  I chose an extra bold color for my picture cause, well, that’s just me!  This dress comes with a HUD that gives you 8 patterns to choose from for the dress and the cute gladiator sandals that come with it (not shown, obv.).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

This is a 1L hunt and runs from June 1 to June 30.

Now if you will all please excuse me, I have some more hunting to do.  😉  Happy happy weekend!

You and I

You and I

Some nights you just end up on the kitchen floor talking for hours.  Sometimes I end up on the kitchen floor wrestling with a Christmas tree and some super glue, but that’s a story for another day.   This is an evening for long chats, candlelight and the possibility of a slice of cake after.  Aren’t those the best kinds of nights?

That’s the Ydea

In my meanderings, I wandered into Ydea Style and much to my delight found a rather extensive wall of Lucky Boards.  The group is free to join, and the wall is crammed with free finds for both male and female avatars.  My cute little overalls and top, as well as Oov’s layered shirts come from there, and all that was required was a bit of patience!  I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you there too.

Female Outfit Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Male Outfit Sizes

  • Fitmesh
  • L – S and an Alpha Layer

Candelit

Apple Fall also has a new group gift – and it’s a set of jarred candles.  There are four different scents (that I wish I could actually smell…but hey such is Second Life!) and they come in both an open and shut version.  You can give the wick a little click to light the candle and it emits a very romantic glow.  The Apple Fall group is free to join, making these babies entirely free.

Set it Down

Of course, you’ll need a cute table to put these candles on, and Ishiku have got just the thing you need.  Their latest group gift is a set of side tables in several different textures (I went for worn marble) and different heights so you can make an artfully arranged display.  The Ishiku group is free to join, and you’ll find a bunch of other really awesome group gifts on the wall there too.

Now if you’ll excuse us, this party is just for two!

Ok peeps, Lybra has got limited quantities of this cool top loaded in a Midnight Mania board!  There are only 999 fatpacks up for grabs, and once the board locks, that’s all she wrote.  To take part in this one off, you’ll have to be part of the Lybra group which is currently free to join.  You’d better hurry if you want in!

I also couldn’t resist showing off more free hair from KMH for you today.  This cute cropped hairstyle is another of the free gifts you can find at Pride @ Home – no group join required!  There’s also a version in the box for male avatars, so spread the word to the guys!  There are plenty of awesome free gifts at Pride @ Home, as I mentioned a bit earlier today.

Just Another Day at The Office

Just Another Day at the Office

It’s just another day at the office here in Second Life!   I’m busy answering calls, and being fabulous while covered in all things rainbow.  Happy Pride everyone!  I hope that you enjoy the month of all things equality and love, and that we all keep in mind that love sure is a terrible thing to hate.  Let’s dive in to the madness!

Pride at Home

It’s time for another round of Pride @ Home – last year’s event was lots of fun, but if you ask me this year’s is even bigger.  You’ll find a pile of really great gifts at the Pride @ Home sim, and you don’t even need a group to get them!  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE hair by KMH in 4 different rainbowish hues
  • FREE top by NeverWish sized for Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • FREE knickers by Rouly sized for Freya, Kupra, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE backdrop by The Bearded Guy

I’m pretty much enamoured with anything rainbow hued (I mean, come on…look at the blog) so this sure is a lot of awesomeness.  Pride @ Home is running until July 1st, so if it’s busy, you’ve got time before it all disappears.  Oh, and you’ll also find a rainbow version of the Blueberry bikini I showed you yesterday there for free!

Be Kind

Be Kind

I often ask myself what’s up with mean people?  I  mean, seriously what’s the deal?  I often wonder why one would wish to expend so much on energy on being lame.  Clearly the only solution lies emblazoned across my shirt!  Be kind!

Please Rewind

You’ll get my daily motto plastered on a shirt over at Reed for free!  This tank and shorts combo is their latest group gift, and if you ask me it’s pretty cute and summer-ready!  The top and shorts can be worn separately, just in case you’d like to switch things up a bit.  The Reed group is free to join, and there are a few other gifts to pick up while you’re there.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Pose it Out

Versuta has a new set of poses out for members of their free to join group.  I quite liked this one because it gave me a bit of the “what the heck is going on?” feels.  There are 5 different poses in this pack, and you’ll find a full wall of awesome pose sets while you’re there too!

Look to the shirt!
