Soon… True Peace

12-04-2017

Finally….

We have come to a peace accord. I am no longer allowed to mention “the chair”, the incident, the attempted murder, or how the chair was really mine. (I did call “dibs” first!) Also, I am to complement her daily (while trying to hide my eye rolls as I say them). And for her part of the peace treaty, she is to smile and say thank you every time I give her said complements. I think I could have gotten a better deal….

We are both NUTS!

We decided to take a leisurely stroll outside in the fresh snow. We even put on our FREE matching sweaters (so we didn’t fight over who got to wear what)  from NUTS Inc. that we found on the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The his and hers Britt and Niels Sweaters come in the following sizes:

For Her…

  • Mesh XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

For Him…

  • Sizes S-L + Alpha Layer
  •  2 Fitmesh sizes

That Peaceful, Easy Feeling…

It didn’t take me long to intentionally trip  playfully shove her down in a snow drift. I ended up down there with her. (she my be small but STRONG).  And after a bit of snow throwing (how I ended up on the bottom, I don’t know, but I was watching out for any object that could be placed over my face) she looked up and pointed out a dove flying overhead. Maybe we will have peace after all. Another FREE gift to be found on the Peace on Earth Hunt is the Soon True Peace pose from Something New . This lovely couples pose includes the dove, the symbol for peace. It may also be a nice pose for the traditional couples Christmas Card. I only hope peace lasts at least through the holidays….

Looking for Clues

Looking for Clues

Caiben, Private Eye…

I jimmy the lock on the door, step inside and quietly shut the door behind me. I search through the desk drawers and come up empty. The papers on the desk also reveal nothing. The computer is still on and I see a file on the desktop. Bingo! Pulling out my thumb drive, I quickly copy the file and slip out the door unnoticed.

Sometimes a Gentleman…

I disheveled detective look is a Men Only Hunt 10 gift from AITUI. The Gentleman Open Jacket has the printed shirt attached.  The jacket comes in fitted sizes for Signature, Slink and TMP bodies, but it fit my ADAM body just fine.

His Second Life…

The ‘office’ is a FREE  store anniversary gift from Something New. His Second Life comes with four poses within the office. There is also a Her Second Life gift for the ladies.

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Country Life

Country Life

She said I could rez anything…

After I was allowed to decorate a corner of the house [Here],  it was then decided that my decorating skills would be put to better use outside…     While she was out, I got bored and decided to make the outdoor space a little more “me”. I found the perfect pose prop for the side yard. The Country Life Pose prop by Something New is a FREE group gift to members. This is a group pose, but Chester the goat (yes, there’s a goat wandering the property) ate the other two pose balls before I could gather some friends. The tractor and the sheep are included with this pose (you wouldn’t want Chester). The Something New group is FREE to join.

Late night online shopping…

Another sign of bordom is online shopping. I was told by more than one person I should check out this deal on the Marketplace from Polo Paul (the place my glasses came from, btw). The Alpha Outfit was a steal at just $44L. The Mesh Boots and Mesh Hardcore Jeans both come in sizes XS-XL and the Mesh Leather Jacket w/ Shirt comes in sizes S-L with two fitted sizes as well. I finished off the look by finding the Paper Coffee Cup by Indolent for $10L, also on the Marketplace. When she came home, I did my best model presentation gesture to the tractor and in return received a stern finger point to the man cave…

I need a bigger man cave….

Carson is wearing…

Outfit: Polo Paul – Alpha Outfit ($44L  on the Marketplace)

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted. 😉

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

Ain’t Nobody Gonna Steal My Honey!

Snapshot_004It’s a good thing Gizza put out this sneaky peeky camoflauge hunting set out as a free group gift because I had a little investigating to do this evening.  Someone’s been sneaking my honey for weeks!  Of course when I got there and began my investigation, it was clear instantly that there was nothing but Booger Bear fluff and tiny paw prints.  I knew it had to be those rascally little fuzzbutts…  Now to figure out who they belong to….  CALLLEEEEE

You can pick this this one piece (shorts/shirt/jacket) full “Hunter” outfit by Gizza as a free group gift after you have activated your free Gizza inworld group tag.  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh body specific sizes.  There is also a matching men’s outfit available as a free gift if you feel you need to call for back up on your hunting expedition.

As previously mentioned on FabFree, Gizza has an expansive group gift area at the landing point filled with goodies for girls and guys.  If you happen to know any new residents or come in contact with any, this is a good place for them to visit!  These are high quality, well made items and 100% free 🙂

Here are a couple more examples of gifts available at Gizza:

Cowgirl up

Heyy FabFree Folks!

Cowgirl up

I’m back today with a fantastic new Group Gift from More than Ever. This is the “Boho Romantic Dress” and I do know what ‘Boho’ is… but I got this great western vibe from the softly textured denim fabric and I just had to cowboy up. Or CowGirl up.  The Boho Romantic comes in the standard Mesh sizes from XXS-XL and comes with it’s own alpha layer. The group is FREE to join so don’t hesitate! You can also check out some stunning new MTE designs at the Spring Freshness Cart Sale at the Wash (we saw the 10L Strawberry Girl dress here first!) and the Designer Showcase Event.

I had the boots and hat in my hot mess of an inventory closet, but I needed some jewelry with a western flare. I found this gorgeous necklace on the Marketplace for a mere 25L. This is the “Black and Silver Feather necklace” from Country Couture.  It’s beautifully built and comes with a resizer so any size Avi can wear it.

Blue-jean Baby

Happy Weekend Everyone! I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love the country, though admittedly I’m kinda torn at times. One of the things however that do very much enjoy about country life is the atmosphere. Life is more casual, sometimes it even seems that time it’s self moves at a slower, comfortable pace. The skies seem enormous, and there is a communion with nature that just doesn’t happen in the big city. Considering my conflicting adoration of both country and city life, my wardrobe can sometimes be a mishmash of both worlds. Still, I think I somehow manage to make it work!  I believe this outfit fits into that idea quite well. There’s a little bit of country, with the denim jumper and hair scarf, but I’ve got my city-girl heels on, my makeup is a little bit wild, and my toenails and fingernails are freshly manicured!

Where did I find this stuff you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, just like I’m conflicted about the country versus the city, I’m conflicted about where I like to shop! It seems lately I have an events addiction, and with so many good ones going on, who wouldn’t?! My first stop was The Wild West Fair where I picked up my shoes, my perfect manicure by ZOZ, and this awesome pose by Something New complete with horse and apple! Next I meandered through the N21 event, and while there bagged my hairdo and this adorable necklace. The necklace is by AMAYA and there are several versions with one-word sayings like “Yes” or “Adored”. Mine says “Kiss”, and I think that’s super sweet! My skin is one Love told me about, it’s the current Group Gift at Genesis. I’m so glad she did, it’s just different enough to really be my style! This lovely skin from Genesis has some vampy lipstick and shimmery gold eye-shadow. It also includes appliers for Slink hands and feet as well as Lolas Tango, and Phat/Cute Azz.  Wanting a little extra color in my eye-makeup, I went with something a little different and got this under-eye liner at La Petite Morte! It comes in a fatpack with several different color options, and the basic black. As for my jumper, I found it on the Marketplace!  I sincerely hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Sequel to Room 326 – Cry of the Peacock Hunt

CryofThePeacock_A

Hello all my Fabulous Friends….

Have you heard the Peacock cry?

Well, the last couple of days I’ve been doing the latest Madpea Hunt, “Cry of the Peacock“.  They say that when a Peacock cries… it rains… well, it is POURING in Mad City.   Our job is to be the brave detective that frees the victims trapped souls. (The victims of the are the people from the prior hunt…. “The Room 326 Hunt” I wrote up this hunt before in my post “Returning to Room 326…“. This hunt is still going on as well…. Read my former posting to get all those great gifts along with this ones…. )

“How do we do this hunt Care?” You might be asking yourself….

Teleport to “Mad City  – Silent Peacock Hotel” , there you will see a phone stall on the wal to your left… It looks like this…

Cry of the Peacock Hunt HUD Vendor

This is the Hunt HUD Vendor for this hunt…  (NOTE: This hunt hud costs L$ 100, but once you see the prizes you will most likely be willing to spend that 😉 )

When you wear your newly acquired HUD it will open up with a note from Madame Peacock…..

HUD opened….

What you need to accomplish to finish this hunt and claim the prizes….

Complete the sheets of music
Find the code to the Police Station safe
Locate the missing posters in the City
Match the posters with the police file
Find items belonging to the victims
Oh and free the victims, dont forget that 😉
