Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize.  Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the party (lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!

Holding on to Summer

Coming soon to FabFree!
While many parts of the world are starting to embrace fall, we here are stubbornly clinging to summer temperatures.  And that is okay, because it is giving me the perfect excuse to wear this beautiful sundress FabFree group gift from Snowpaws.  The package includes 10 mesh sizes for just the right fit.
Coming soon to FabFree!

ChicChica currently has a jeweled headband as a free gift.  Its wonderfully made with lots of detail.  I tried it on with a few dozen hair styles (I have a bit of a hair addiction problem!) and it looked great with just about every one.

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

We’ve Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!)

There’s nothing quite like working together to get a job done! And I had a picture frame to hang so… I called Glimmer over to see if she’d help me — plus I wanted to show her my new Christmas tree! I’m not really sure this was the kind of framing I had in mind… but we had fun anyway! 😀

By the way! That gorgeous 3-D mesh Christmas tree you see behind us? Is a totally FREE gift you can pick up if you hurry over to LeLutka right now. It’s their advent tree! Not only is LeLutka giving away gorgeous advent gifts each day, but they are giving away the tree too! Just join the LeLutka group FREE and click the tree itself for your FREE copy!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 1

So we didn’t quite get the picture hung on the wall, but Glimmer and I looked great anyway! I had found this amazing applier top (don’t worry it has system layers too) called the April Blouse (with lovely flexi sleeves and prim bottom) at the advent calendar at PurpleMoon Creations (Day 15). It is yours FREE with your 50L group join — plus all the other advent goodies at PurpleMoon as well!

Glimmer outdid me though, I think! Can you believe how that gold dress just shimmers! She found a real sweet deal at Sweet Temptations for you! Her Golden Nights cocktail dress is the current FREE gift at Sweet Temptations and the group is FREE to join as well, making it a completely FREE gift! Yay! She is also wearing a free holiday hat she found at SnowPaws that are FREE for everyone — no group required! How cool is that!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 2

I wanted to show you a couple more great offers before I went back to finish hanging that frame that never got hung! The hair you see me sporting in these pictures is from MINA and is currently one of two VIP gifts available to group members. This one is called Waylon and is actually the men’s gift, but it had such a cute little ‘flip’ to the edges that it took on a feminine feel when I put it on (sorry guys out there!). The female gift is equally pretty. Both gifts are yours FREE with you group tag. The group is 200L to join but you get 2 gifts per month, full fatpacks, so the fee is well worth your time.

My necklace is currently a FREE advent gift at Chop Zuey (day 3) from the FREE side (no group required). This particular necklace called Snow Dance also came with earrings which I’m not wearing, and just has gorgeous details. The advent calendar at Chop Zuey is filling up with beautiful items… be sure to check it out!

Lilies in The Snow

Good morning Fabulous readers! Today I am showing off the stunning Arumm Lily Dress and flower accessories by Snowpaws that you can pick up as a free Peace on Earth Hunt prize.  All you need to do is locate that little globe hunt icon, and you’ll be set!

This beautiful set includes the flowing white dress in standard mesh sizing, chest lilies and the lily hair accessory.  I think you could get away with wearing this in the winter or the summer, and wouldn’t it be a great wedding dress? 😉  Just an idea!
