Playful as a Kitten

Playful as a Kitten

Yup, I gots me another cat shirt!  I don’t actually own any cats, but I do have a ginormous pile of cat-themed accessories (both in RL and SL…) I’ve got cat ear headbands, cat shirts, cat socks, cat rings… I have a hard time passing it all up.  Love pointed me in the direction of this find, and it’s making me feel quite playful, so I pulled out a hula hoop and just did my thang.  Whee!

Chatons

Oui oui, I have zee cats on my shirt!  I joined the group over at Charm for free, and found this really fun boatneck tee dress that will get me through the warm months in style for free!  I particularly enjoy the apt naming of the dress which is “Kittens Tear My Shirt”.  eheheheehehhee…. I can’t stop giggling.  Grab one for yourself, I’m sure it will have the same effect!

Hong Kong Garden

Hong Kong Garden

Have you ever seen the movie Marie Antoinette?  The one starring Kirsten Dunst and featuring a whole bunch of awesome 80’s music.  I really love the movie a lot, it’s just so visually stunning.  One of the songs on the soundtrack is Hong Kong Garden by Siouxie and the Banshees, and I’m just kinda feeling the vibe of that song in this dress, mixed with the pastel hues of the Sofia Coppola film.  Want your own dreamy dress?  It’s easy as pie!

Senses Working Overtime

I found this lovely high-necked dress by Celestina’s Weddings at the Sense Event.  Join their group for free, and pick up this pretty confection which features a daring split up the side tied at a jaunty angle.  I feel like I could do really cool things in this dress, for some reason.  Well, at the very least I know it would look great dressed up for a fancy event!

A Bit of Sparkle

I also managed to come across some great baubles to complete my look – these bangles are a free gift at Oxide – no group join required, just pay the vendor 1L which will be returned to you along with these pretty bracelets.  So cute.  I also got some free earrings that I snapped up by clicking on the subscriber, and then clicking on the gifts below it.  There are all sorts of goodies to be had over at Oxide, so be sure to check them out!

Guess which movie I’m watching tonight?

Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

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

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

Electric Sweets

Electric Sweets

I’m in the mood for candy!  It happens fairly often, I must admit…but this dress totally makes me want to nip over to the candy store and pick up a whole bunch of sour gummies that are covered in sugar! Mmm-hmm!  Get it girls!

Je Suis Chic!

We’ve shown off a bunch of the gifts from the Très Chic event – and they’ve all been gorgeous!  You can see some of the other finds HERE, HERE and HERE.  I picked up loads of gorgey things – including my dress by Canimal,which comes in this fantabulous shade of electric green, and features a really cool criss-cross section around the collar and hem.  And check out them peek-a-boo cut outs!  So cool!  The dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  The earrings by Legal Insanity are really fab dangling triangular chains which I would totally wear the heck out of in RL.  The last gift I picked up at Très Chic, is my long sleek hair by No Match.  Isn’t it nice? It comes in a pack of ombre colours that will take you from office to party faster than you can say “flatiron”!

Can you believe all these gifts are completely FREE?  It might *just* be better than candy!

Glam Slam

Glam Slam

Being glamorous in the summer is a tricky thing.  Pulling off makeup and perfect hair when the temperature is rising is always a difficult task.  And to top it all off, you’re in your bathing suit.  Luckily, we’ve got Second Life!  I can laze in my swimsuit, eyelashes fluttering nonchalantly without a drip of mascara running down my cheek.  And just as luckily, we have quite the wide array of bathing suits to choose from, which always fit properly – no change room horrors to be lived through with their glaring lights and unseemly mirrors!

Be the Queen

I found my bathing suit today – no change room horror to be had – at Queenz!  It’s a free group gift that comes in several different hues.  I went for the camouflage version – because why not think about the early 2000’s now and then! I particularly enjoy the straps that say “Girl Gang” on them in a very Gwen Stefani clothing line kind of way.  Join the group for free, and grab your gift (as well as a few others that are hanging out on the wall!)

Heel Boy!

My shoes (which of course I can wear with a bathing suit in SL…) are a group gift at Beauty Factory.  They’re the type of shoes that you can save the world in, I think – I might be wrong, but they scream power to me!  They are super low cut, showing off a bit of toe cleavage (is that a thing?) and the thin heels are simply to die for.  These pumps are sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink .  Grab yours by joining the Beauty Factory group for 99 Lindens!

Now get out there, glamour girls!

The Secret Gate

The Secret Gate

 

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

New Roads

Oh, um hi Fab Free!  You caught me quoting from my fave book – Lord of the Rings.  Yes, I am a mystery wrapped in an enigma, I am aware!  (ha).  Anywhos, I’ve clothed myself today with a free top, that I think is pretty darn cute.  The Anita Jeans top is a free group gift at Loki, and their group is free to join!  The enclosed HUD allows you to change the colour of the top to six delightful hues.  This gift is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  There are a bunch of other gifts you can pick up while you’re there too, so hop to it!

Bunting Baby

I also found a fun little decor item in my travels – Apple Fall (which I am, of course, obsessed with and would literally buy everything in the store) has a group gift out which is super cute!   It’s this pretty Varsity bunting set which you can customize to say whatever you want.  There are a bunch of different versions in the box, so you can make longer or shorter messages, or stack a bunch of different lengths together.   This would be great for a party, or even just to hang up in your home for fun!  I may end up playing with this for ages!  You can grab your copy by joining the Apple Fall group for free, then clicking on the vendor in the front entrance area of the store.

Oh and, Happy Victoria day to all my Canuck peeps out there!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

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.

Beanie Baby

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!

The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Repping the T Dot

Repping the TDot

I am totally repping my home town of Toronto in this t-shirt today – you know, Drake lyrics on my shirt and all that jazz!  Toronto is a concrete jungle of greyness and insanity at times, but right now the trees are in bloom, the sun is shining and I’m ready to take it all in…but maybe a nap first? Good thing this exceedingly comfortable pool table just happened to be here…

Mom’s Plan

I got my Drake-lyric adorned shirt today at High V, where they put out a gift for mother’s day for both males and females, and it’s entirely free.  It’s a great little crop top for days where you just kinda want to laze around, while also showing off your midriff!  No group join required, just a click!

Slouch On

I found a pair of sweatpants that work really nicely with my t-shirt at Atik.  I like the striking colour combination of lime green and purple, as well as the slouchy fit of the pants.  You can grab your own pair by joining the group for free (make sure you end up in Atik , look to your left from the landing point – took me a while to find it myself!)
