What Could Go Wrong?

What Could Go Wrong?

There’s this thing that happens in summer where the minute I get ready for something summery (today on the menu is surfing…) the clouds appear, or the wasps show up and all my summer plans are dashed.  Happily, I can avoid all the unpleasantness with a bit of windlight magic in SL!

Sun-Sational

The Wash’s Sun-Sational Event is still raging on this month, and I came across this super cute bikini and sandals outfit courtesy of Artic Storm.  There are several different colours to choose from at The Wash, and I went for the pink option.  The whole outfit is a steal at just 25L!  How awesome is that?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Dial up the sunshine!

A Slice of Heaven

A Slice of Heaven

It’s one of those days where all I want to do is go out, buy ridiculous amounts of objects that I don’t really need, and then finish with a massive bowl of ice cream.  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  I think everyone has their own idea of heaven, but that might just be one of my favourite iterations!

Gacha Good

Kustom9 is in full gear right now, and Amitomo are back at it with their newest gacha.  I can never resist playing the Amitomo gachas, because they really are a great deal.  You usually walk away from 1 or 2 plays with a full outfit, and with a bit of luck you often land the rares.  This has been my experience at the very least!  I promise that I only played this gacha three times (at 69L per pull) and I landed this full outfit (the dress, jacket, bags and ice cream, all with HUDs to customize the bags and ice cream, as well as the hand colour) as well as the rare hair.  In my books, that’s an awesome deal!  Plus…just look at it, how much more late 80’s early 90’s appealing can you get?  This fun outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies and there are loads of different versions of the outfit you could end up with!  Check out the vendor pic below!

Good luck!

Therapy

Who here needs some shopping therapy?  I know that I sure do, and the best part of SL shopping is that I can do it from the comfort of my own home.  The Wash Cart Sale opens today, and it’s stuffed to the brim with great deals!  Let me show you what I got today!

Rub a Dub Dub

You’ve got until April 11th to explore every inch of what The Wash has to offer.  I love finding deals at the Cart Sale, and this round is no exception.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

Just a Little Insanity

Just a Little Insanity

I’m a sucker for a crazy outfit in SL, and this one is totally giving me life right now.  It’s shiny, sexy, zippered, and just generally insane in all the right ways.  Do you ever get excited about the fact we can wear pure insanity in SL?  I know I do.

Blossoming

So Fab Free reader Karan whispered a tip in my IM box yesterday that made me head on over to Blossom.  They’ve got a 1000L gift card just waiting to be snapped up on their main counter.  All you need to do is join their group for free, and this awesome gift is yours.  Again, I have no idea for how long, but it is there!  If gift cards aren’t your thing, then head over to the lucky board area where there are about 40 billion (slight exaggeration) lucky boards full of cute outfits.  If you don’t have time to wait, then the option is there for you to buy the outfit I’m wearing for just 49L.  The shoes are also from a lucky board there, and you can’t be mad at that!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Get over there, Fab Free!

Goodbye Gato

Goodbye Gato

It’s always sad when a brand decides to sail off into the windlight sunset, but I supposed that is the nature of things in both RL and SL.  One of my fave brands, GATO is closing up shop, but is giving us all a bit of time to gather the rosebuds while we may!

Meow

There are all sorts of goodies to be had at GATO, but I really loved this dress (sized for Maitreya).  It’s deeply discounted to just 60L, and that made me pretty happy.  If you’re looking for even bigger deals, then I’ll point you in the direction of the Gachas, some of which are discounted down to  20L per pull.  Grab all you can now (don’t forget the group gifts too!), cuz Gato will disappear forever quite soon.   Thanks for the mems, Gato!

Now, off you pop.

The Creative Process

The Creative Process

Ah, Fab Free…the creative juices are a-flowin!  And there’s a sentence that sounded better in my head.  Despite my clunky phrase, the sentiment remains the same!  I’m all about the artistic pursuits, whether in RL or SL, so why not adorn your SL affordably?  Read on!

So De’Fient

My lovely boots and dress are the offering by De’Fient Unicorn at The Wash Crisp n Cool Cart Sale.  They come bundled together and are priced at a very affordable 50L.  I’d pay way more than that for the boots alone!  I also picked up the long cardigan at the same stall, and it only cost me 1L.  Cute, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS-L with an Alpha Layer

Easel-y Done

Terrible subtitles aside, I love the whole art set I picked up at The Cart Sale by Luna Rose.  The easel I’m painting on and the stool came together and cost 50L.  The exciting part is that the canvas has a function that lets you paint gradually.  In other words, the painting appears more and more complete each time you click on it and there are two different paintings to choose from.  Fun!  I also picked up the canvases on the ground in my shot at the same cart, and they set me back only 25L.  I love to decorate in SL, so these were fun buys for me!

Do you keep it creative?  Let me know in the comments!

Together in Electric Dreams

Together in Electric Dreams

We’ll always be together
However far it seems
We’ll always be together
Together in electric dreams

Sometimes I feel like Together in Electric Dreams is kind of the theme song of Second Life.  We basically all hang out together, our thoughts zapping at each other through electrical currents as we make friends, fall in love and be whatever we really want to be.  I sometimes get a bit philosophical about what Second Life is, or what it can mean to us all, and I’m sure you’ll agree it can definitely be a special place.  It has its ups and downs, but it brought you here, and I’m glad you’re here, so it can’t be all bad, now can it?

Completely Syndicated

I’ll stop going all maudlin and thoughtful and get down to the fashion!  It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday – a whole week of deeply discounted finds from some of your fave designers!  Everything for Syndicate Sunday is priced at just 69L, so you can grab some cool stuff!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • 69L Lingerie by Psycho Barbie (sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique and Venus, HUD to change to several colours)
  • 69L Earrings by Astara (With an extensive colour change HUD)
  • 69L Animated Panels by Hilted (Can be resized, in several glowing hues)

There are a whole bunch of great deals for Syndicate Sunday, so make sure you check out their website to see all the awesomeness!  This round runs until May 12th!

Thanks for being a part of my electric dreams,

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

It seems that the symptoms of Spring Fever have gone a bit wonky on me right now.  I’ve never heard of daisies sprouting from one’s face before, but you never know what can happen in SL, right?

Flower Child

I do love a good gacha.  I know there are some people out there who hate them, or who have sworn them off completely, but I am not one of those people.  I love the chance of putting together a cute look for a few Lindens, especially when the outfit is something super cool like this gacha by Mug that I found over at Lootbox.  In just a few pulls, I got the bra, panties, flowers for my face, arms and chest and even shoes!  I dunno, it just kind of makes me happy!  This gacha comes sized for Maitreya, Freya and V-Tech bodies.  Lootbox is open until April 18th!

Good luck, my pretty little flowers!

The Place Where Spring Is

The Place Where Spring Is

So guys, spring has technically sprung, right?  Flowers!  Colours!  Happiness!  Yeah, and it flipping well snowed in my part of RL last night.  I refuse to let the little white flakes dampen my spirits, so I clambered into SL and found all sorts of prettiness to counteract the cold!

Beauteous

I super love this cute new group gift from Belle Epoque!  The top and pants are attached, so the top tucks in perfectly, giving you a seamless look.  So cute, right?  You can get your own version (sized for Maitreya bodies) by joining the Belle Epoque group for 10 Lindens.  There are a bunch of other gifts while you’re there to pick up too!

I refuse to shovel this snow.  Just saying.

In Between the Lines

In Between the Lines

You remember when you would read fashion magazines as a teen, and they always contained some form of quiz?  You know, like the type that told you what kind of guy was for you?  Well, I’d always do the ones that told you which style was yours, and annoyingly each time I would land somewhere in the middle of three categories.  Something like, one third rocker, one third boho and one third sporty.  I dunno if there was something wrong with my programming back then, or maybe I was catching on early to the fact that it’s really ok to switch it up!  Today, I’m feeling just a little rough and tough, though tomorrow I may show up in frills!  You just never know…

Syndicate Sunday Time!

Syndicate Sunday has rolled around again, and there are loads of great deals going on all over the grid.  Syndicate Sunday takes place during the week after the first Sunday of every month, and you’ll find loads of goodies priced at just 69 Lindens in some of your favourite stores!  I made my way over to Psycho Barbie and found this insanely awesome bomber jacket (I love the fact that it falls off the shoulders, and it happens to come with a fairly extensive HUD) for just 69 Lindens.  I also nipped by Astara and got these great celestial earrings for 69L as well.  There are lots of other goodies in participating stores, just check out the event’s website to figure out what you just can’t live without!
