Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Happy Canada Day, Fabbies 🍁!  I know that the vast majority of our readers don’t necessarily hail from the land of maple syrup and poutine like I do, but we do have a dedicated set of readers out there – I see you, Canucks!  Anywhos, if you’re looking to celebrate the land of Inukshuks, Polar Bears, Anne of Green Gables, Nanaimo Bars, Beaver Tails, Ryan Reynolds, Hockey, The Northern Lights, Tim Horton’s, Moose, Canoes, Drake, Free Health Care, Mounties and about 50 billion other fun things… well, then this post is for you.  I salute you, Canadaland!

MP Trawl

Around this time of year every year, it’s my personal little tradition to trawl Marketplace in search of some cute Canadian gifties.  They’re not always easy to find, so an MP search can be a fun scavenger hunt.  There are a few I come back to every year, just because they’re so cute, and a few new ones I add into my repertoire.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L top by Shamrock Boutique sized for Isis, Freya, Hourglass, Jomo Fox, Jomo Werewolf, Maitreya, Physique and Venus with three different textures to choose from (Hi Dews!)
  • FREE glasses by Little Llama
  • 10L Headband by Sugarplum Boutique

There are quite a few other fun things – what will you put together?

Movie Night!

I’m getting straight up movie night by the lake at the cottage vibes from Kim’s Kreations today.  You all know how generous Ms. Kim is, and she’s gone and done it again with all sorts of Canadiana for you to set up the perfect night with friends.  You’ll find the whole movie night set there for free, as well as the balloon arch behind to decorate with!  There’s even a flyable balloon there that you’ll have fun zooming around places and yelling “eh!” at people from.  Trust me, I’ve done it.  Thanks Kim!

 

Have a wonderful day, Canada – you’re pretty awesome.

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! ❤

The Maple Leaf Forever

The Maple Leaf Forever

Happy Canada Day Fab Fam!  I’m all about the Red, White and Red today, happy to celebrate this awesome land!  As is my tradition, I always throw a bunch of  Canadian stereotypes your way on July 1st, so hold on to your beavertails, because it’s going to be an h-e-double-hockey-stick of a ride, eh!

Sorry!

For our maple-syrup guzzling contest (which of course is tradition on Canada Day), as well as for our moose-wrangling competition, you’ll need the perfect Canadian shirt!  Over at The Annex, they’ve got you covered with a free group gift!  On joining their free group, you gain access to this cute and clearly Canadian top which was made especially for chasing raccoons away from your poutine!  If you’re looking for some American-style celebratory gear, they’ve got a bunch for the 4th as well.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

We the North

This little Canadian headband is courtesy of Sugarplum Boutique!  They’re getting you ready for all the festivities (which of course are socially distanced this year), with excellent Maple Leaves to catch any lumberjack, Mountie or sexy Prime Minister’s attention.  They only cost 10L on Marketplace!  So cool!

Well my friends, I hope that this little foray into Canadian craziness has amused you all!  To all my fellow Canucks out there, Happy Canada Day and may the butter tarts be ever in your favour!

Spring Break

Spring Break

It’s time for a little mixup of this pre-spring weather! Last night I went out with the ladies to a nice lil private dive bar and ladies this outfit was the hit of the party!  Today I bring you some Marketplace goodies for you to enjoy and feel FABULOUS wearing out at your next party!

Dive bar on the East Side, where you at?

This dress from Sugarplum Boutique was my first official Fab Find and I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and at the price of L$30 I couldn’t resist adding it to my cart! It comes in a few different colors and even black for your little black dress needs. Sometimes a sexy dress is all a woman needs to kick those winter blues.

So dust off those super sexy heels and treat yourself!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Here Kitty Kitty

Here Kitty Kitty

Oh hey there Fab Free!  I took a few days off to enjoy the searing heat of this summer, but I did see some pretty things and enjoy myself while I was melting like an Aline-sicle in the 39 degrees Celsius temps.  Whatevs, I’m back on the deal-finding train right now, which took me to a place I’ve always dreamed of – the land of cat-themed clothes!  Happiness!

Meowketplace

We are all well versed in the magic of SL Marketplace.  You type a few words in and you’ll find all your heart desires, in varying degrees of affordability.  That’s how I came across Sugarplum Boutique, while looking for random stuff.  They have a whole bunch of very affordable pieces in their MP store, and I fell in love with the Meow Dress (50 Lindens – comes in sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer, as well as a white version included)  and Cat Headband (20 Lindens).  The shop is crammed full of cuteness, so make sure you check them out!

See you kittens later!

Another Lazy Day at the Lake

Another Lazy Day at the Lake

Happy Monday, FabFree! I hope the day is treating you right. Especially after our nice long Holiday weekend. I’m taking another day out here at the lake ’cause why not, right?

Hot Coco

It’s a must have on a camping trip and now a must have in the wardrobe. My cozy ‘Cropped track jacket’ is the latest free Group Gift from Coco. I can’t believe that this wonderful group is free to join ’cause there are a ton of past gifts still available. The Track Jacket is perfect over tank tops or, if you’re feeling sassy, all by itself.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

A Little Bit of Sugar

I love my new sweet as sugar bra top from Star Sugar. This is the ‘Sugar Lingerie Set’ and it is also the latest Group Gift up for grabs. You’ll get this cute top and a pair of equally cute panties in the set.  The included HUD will give you choice of eight color/patterns. The bra and the panties are each changeable so you can mix and match.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits most

Denim Daze

Last but not least are my cute new shorts. I’m always on the look out for good shorts that are a bit more modest than some SL fashions out there.I don’t like to be too “cheeky”, if ya know what I mean. These ‘Babe Shorts’ from Sugar Plum Boutique fit the bill perfectly. And at only 25 Lindens on the Marketplace you won’t break the bank.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

We, The North

We The North

HAPPY CANADA DAY FAB FREE!

It’s the time of the year when I give thanks for all things maple syrup!  Up here in the North, we’re celebrating with barbecues, face paint, fireworks and hot Prime Ministers!  Up here in the True North, Strong and Free we like our beer, our nature and all sorts of cool stuff like poutine, ketchup chips and toques!  You guys do realize that this is the one day of the year I throw as many Canadian stereotypes at you as I possibly can, so hunker down on your chesterfields and grab your nanaimo bars, cuz we’re about to do it up Canuck-style!

Just Give’r

I trawled through Marketplace for just the right outfit to celebrate this most auspicious of days, and came up with a really cute jumpsuit by [sYs].  Their marketplace store is chock full of great dollarbies, and this one I’ve got on is no exception.  I topped off my look with the “Oh Canada” headband by Sugarplum Boutique which only cost 10L.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Perfect for singing O Canada and waving flags emphatically while grinning at my pet moose.  Speaking of flags, I grabbed this little animated Canadian flag by Persephone’s Grove for only 15L on marketplace as well, rounding out a nice lot of dollarbies and cheapies for my long weekend!

Jumpsuit Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

From up here in the wilds of Canada, I wish you all the best for this Canada Day!  Sending you loads of Beavertails and Butter Tarts!
