Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

market 1_022

Hey gang,

So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match!  Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.

For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB.  He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me  lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style.  It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:

  • FitMesh
  • Classic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Slink Male
  • Gamit Ocacin
  • Signature Gianni

Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat).  The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well.  This outfit fits:

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

Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.

Take My Picture

takemypicture1

Hello again Fabfreebers! Do you have an open group slot and are interested in free group gifts? Do you like my dress? If you said yes to both of those, than you need to join the Amazing Creations group. My cute tunic dress is one of many free group gifts you can pick up after joining their group. In this particular gift, you actually get 2 versions of this dress, the one I am showing off, and another with a similar black and white print on it. They are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. As much as I love lots of colour, there is something to be said for a great black and white dress that allows little pops of colour from your accessories, to really shine. The Amazing Creations group is free to join, and there are loads of group gifts, for both men and ladies, as well as several group lucky letter chairs. Just make sure you have your tag on to take advantage of it all.

Until next time, TTFN!

Free Dove Has More Free Stuff!! Really!

Every month, Free Dove has been having mini hunts from some of the stores that regularly contribute to them. I picked up some great clothes from Cero Style, and what amounts to a fatpack of shoes from Baby Monkey, and thought I’d show some of it off.

There are 10 hidden boxes from Baby Monkey, you are looking for the white box with the dove on it, and 8 items from Cero Style. Their hunt object is the silver star. Each item is free for everyone, you just need to find them 🙂

Here’s a close up of the Pal Slingbacks, in red. The other colours I did not show off, are Navy, Tan, Ivory and Brown. These shoes come in SLink high, Bellezza, and Maitreya versions.

Almost all of the Cero Style outfits, including 3 more not shown, are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. A few come with system layer items.

I’m not 100% sure how long either hunt will run at Free Dove, but why chance missing out?

Alright lovelies, I am off for now. Hope you are having as wonderful a weekend as I am. Until next time, TTFN!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Hello again everybody. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I know I am! To make this weekend even better, I’ve got a few Marketplace finds for you, 2 great group gifts, and a lovely, wearable demo. Wow, I better get started!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Let’s start with the Marketplace. My sexy dress is called Lanelle, and it is a dollarbie from Tee*fy. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh version for the Maitreya Lara body. My other Marketplace find are my sweet heels. The Nix High Heels also only L$1, were put out as a special for Halloween, from Vowtte, and are still available. They are meant for SLink and Bellezza high feet, and you actually get 2 pairs, the black ones that I am showing off, and a purple pair as well. The texturing on them is amazing, and they are well worth that L$1! (Thanks for the tip on these amazing shoes Glimmer 🙂 )

Feeling a little monochromatic

OK, on to the group gifts. Have you been admiring my beautiful skin? Well, lucky for all of you, it is the most recent Toxxic Design Studio’s group gift from AlterEgo. The lovely Adriana in the rose skin tone, is free for group members, and even better, the group is free to join! You get 2 skins, one with red eyebrows, and the one I am wearing, a browless version. There is also a loudmouth applier, a shape, an eyelash remover, as well as a few brow shapes. Any other appliers you need, have been placed right in front of the sign for your convenience (I hate having to go exploring to find corresponding appliers!), they will need to be purchased for a small fee. The other group gift I am wearing, my pearl jewelry set, comes from Chop Zuey, and is a free gift for members of the Womenstuff group, available in the ‘stuff Lounge. If the To The Daisy set looks a little familiar, you may recall that Astrid had previously shown it to all of you HERE, when Chop Zuey had it out as one of their own group gifts. So if you missed grabbing it then, now’s your chance! You get right and left bracelets, earrings, a ring, and 3 different necklaces that you can wear individually, or stack them all together like I have done. The Womenstuff group has a small join fee of L$50, but as you should already know (from the numerous posts showing off gifts from this group) it is well worth it!

Feeling a little monochromatic

The last piece I want to tell you about, my hair,  may also seem a bit familiar, as Love first modeled it for you HERE as a free group gift.  However, the Sheena hair from LeLutka is now available, free for everyone, as a free wearable colour demo! This rigged mesh style, is a full colour hud pack to allow you to see all the different colours available for LeLutka hair. I really do love wearable demos, it’s a great excuse to put out a freebie, even better when it’s as pretty as this hair is.

I have to say, I am really loving this monochromatic look I’ve put together with all these great finds. Would you believe, other than the choice in hair colour, though even my normal black would have worked, I did not plan it like this at all. Sometimes it just works out perfectly this way 🙂 . Alright lovelies, that is all I have for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!!

Nothing sexier than a love of books.

Happy, happy Thursday everyone! I was afraid I might not make it in time this week, as I am having a few issues with my internet provider, but as you can see, I toughed it out and have some great things to show you. I like to call this my hot Librarian look 😉 .

library1

It all started when I was browsing through the notices in our very own FabFree group in world. I opened the notice from Braham Design, and they had this super cute pants suit group gift. The Ria outfit is free for Braham Design group members, and that group is free to join. The gift consists of mesh pants, a mesh shirt, and a mesh jacket. All pieces come in the standard sizes, and are meant to be worn together, with alpha’s provided to go without the jacket if you’d like. However, they will work separately as well, and since these pieces are all classics, they are for sure going to be staples in my wardrobe. library4

Naturally, I needed shoes. Now, I will admit, the shoes I went with, are highly unpractical for a real Librarian…luckily for me, this is SL, and all shoes are super-comfy *grins*. OK, so, I decided to stop at Shey’s, as I had heard a lot about them, but had not been. Well, I’ve been missing out. In the building labelled Shey Days, there are so many awesome deals, as well as group gifts…I couldn’t help but load up. I picked out the super-glam Trio Q Stilettos. They are for SLink high feet, and as seen in the picture, have a HUD with so many texture options. I had a hard time choosing colours for myself. Red and gold are a classic combination, and go so nicely with black…I think I have a winner. These beauties will set you back a piddly L$30.

library3

I did mention group gifts from Shey, and how fortunate that one of these group gifts totally worked with my look. The simplistic beauty of the Kos Jewelry set, which includes a necklace, earrings, and a bracelet, are a perfect complement for my outfit. As I said, they are a free group gift, the group is free to join, and are actually included in a big grouping of jewelry. So even if this style is not working for you, there are several other pieces included in the group that you are bound to love. Oh, and don’t forget to grab all the other group gifts as well…let me just say…boots. library2

The last piece I wanted to share with you, is from Maxi Gossamer, and as so many of her jewelry pieces are, it is a statement piece! The gorgeous ring on my right hand is called Ketama, and is the current free group gift. The group is still free to join. You get 2 rings in this gift. a small version for your left hand, and this larger, eye-catching version for your right. Both rings are texture change through clicking on the ring itself, with metal options of gold or silver for each of the stone choices. I think it was the perfect final touch to this sexy Librarian.

OK Fabbies. I think I have done my job for the day. I have to admit, this is one of my favourite outfits I’ve put together, and I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. What can I say, I love looking good, for a good book 😉 . I hope you all have a great week, and I will see you all back here next Thursday. Until then, TTFN!
