Rained Out

Rained Out
The clouds are gathering ominously overhead, and I feel like my afternoon tea party is going to be awash with…water.  Though the heavens may be about to open up, I’ve got a plan B on the go where we move all our fresh dainties to the indoors to preserve our party dresses and best tresses.  Indoors we go!

Dressed to Impress

Whenever a tea party is on the menu, one must needs have a perfect party dress!  This one from Lybra really fits the bill, and happily it’s completely free!  I headed over to the Lybra table at The Free Dove to find this beauty.  I joined the Free Dove group for free, then clicked on the box and ’twas all mine!  Doesn’t get much better than that.

There’s a new group gift at Astralia right now, this little paw-fect chair is so adorable I can hardly stand it.  When you join the Astralia group for 149L, you can get this sweet little seat which comes with different colour options for the paws-itively adorable cushions.  Right, I’m running out of cat puns, so I’d better wrap this up!

Happy tea sandwiches to you all!

Fabfree Post: Just like an angel

What am I doing here?

It has been a minute since I’ve had the pleasure of posting for you fabsters, I needed another much needed break for rl duties. I didn’t forget about any of you at all! Promise! I had my birthday celebration to attend and get things ready for, while enjoying some peace and quiet at home with my family.

Today is a good day, well every day I get to share some goodies with you is…
I have a great FREE hunt for you, Paper.Sparrow & The Free Dove have a 10 item hunt going on now until April 30th! The items are free if you can find them 😉 Also just a quick note Paper.Sparrow‘s Group is FREE until April 30th for the hunt! So don’t wait and snag that group asap!

5 FREE items are hidden at The Free Dove and 5 FREE at Paper.Sparrow items include tops, sweatshirts, pants, skirt, & a pair of heels! What is not to love with this hunt? All the items are spring themed for your blooming season enjoyment too and I really hope you have fun trying to find them all. The Free hunt is a little hard as is the nature of the shop’s owner, she (I) love all things that make you frustrated in the search. If you are cleaver you’ll notice they’re numbered 😉 so that little hint can help you out tons!

Goodness Green Gracious!

Goodness Green Gracious!

I know that green seems to be popping up all over the place these past few days, but I for one am all for it.  Here in the frozen North, we’ve still got a while to go before things start even thinking about turning green!  Right now it’s what we like to call “Fool’s Spring” – where a few days of sunshine and *slightly* warmer weather has everyone thinking Spring is on its way…then the snow hits again!  Bring on the green!

Fabulous and Free

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Lybra sure have been knocking it out of the park these days!  They have hunts and free gifts galore going on!  And of course, near and dear to my heart is the new FabFree group gift that just popped up.  This sexy dress comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s flirty and femme in all the right ways.  Of course, to get it all you need to do is join our FREE group, and then click on the vendor.  Lovely!

Hunting for Doves

I told you the other day about the monthly hunt that Lybra is taking part in at The Free Dove, but this month there are actually TWO free hunts going on at The Free Dove!  The second is sponsored by Chop Zuey, which means lots of pretty jewelry.  This time you’re looking for 10 white doves (5 at The Free Dove and 5 at Chop Zuey).  To pick up these gifts, you need to be a member of the Free Dove group which is free to join.  I’m showing off the Star Crossed and Yareli bracelets.  You’ve got until the end of the month to take part in this hunt!

 

GREEN I SAY!

Aubergine on the Scene

Aubergine on the Scene

I am about to wax lyrical about eggplants.  Now, I know that there’s a cheeky meaning to this shirt, but I’m not in any way referring to the subtext going on here- I am 100% actually talking about the purple vegetable I affectionately call the aubergine.  It’s oft overlooked, and yet wonderfully versatile.  In fact, I think I want some for dinner tonight.  Geez, what weird tangents SL brings me on at times.  Anyone for some eggplant parmigiana?

Hunts Galore!

It sure is busy these days in the lands of hunts in SL – which is an awesome thing in my opinion.  There’s another fantastic monthly hunt going on at The Free Dove right now!  They’ve teamed up with another of my favourites – Lybra to bring you 10 fantastic and free prizes.  As per usual with Free Dove hunts, 5 items are hidden at The Free Dove, and 5 are hidden at Lybra.   To get your hands on this awesome shirt (and all the other prizes you see below) – just join the Free Dove group and the Lybra group for free.  You’ll use each respective group at their location.  This hunt is running until March 31st, so don’t delay!

There’s a new group gift at Versuta as well, a pack of 6 bento poses.  Join their free group, and you’ll get this fun pack named hardbies, as well as access to all the other awesome packs of poses that are up on the wall there right now.  I do love a sassy pose!

Have fun Fab Fam!

No Holds Barred Free!

spring air_012

Hello there fab fam!

Ahhh, its a sunny (but very cold! 26F with a wind chill of 15F.  its very windy) March morning! (I suppose it is keeping true to the coming in like a lion part, eh!  Can’t wait for the lamb part!!) I’m getting really antsy for spring y’all.  I’ve already started re-potting and cutting back some of my houseplants (and using some of those cuttings to start new little plants)… I know I am jumping the gun a bit, but I’ve been dying to start for the season and I have terrible self control (part of the reason my inventory is way too big  lol) and so finally just jumped on it!

I’m looking at this photo I did and I’m cold looking at it.  I bet in second life it stays a balmy 70F.  😉  Oh what I wouldn’t give….  alas.

But I digress!  I didn’t come here to chat about the weather with y’all, I came to tell you that I got this stunning outfit for FREE.  Yup, absolutely, totally no holds barred FREE!  Where you ask?  Well The Free Dove, of course!  This sexy little outfit comes from Nandi Style and these really cute (again with the celestial theme, you see that?  lol) moon earrings come from Glint.  Both at The Free Dove.

The dress comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD to change the button on the skirt.  😉

Stay warm gang!  May the cold wind be ever at your back

Shhh…I’m hiding out in here cuz I’m trying to escape from all the things I’m supposed to be doing.  The thing is, you put on some lingerie and a robe and next thing you know you’re far too sexy to be doing anything as pedestrian as washing the dishes.  I call this look “the dishes can wait, don’t tell them I’m hiding”.

The Hunt is Afoot!

It’s time for another awesome free hunt hosted by The Free Dove.  This month, the prizes come courtesy of one of my absolute faves – Alaskametro!  If you’re not familiar with how hunts from The Free Dove work, then let me break it down real quick.  There are 10 prizes to be found, but 5 of them will be at The Free Dove, and the other 5 are located at Alaskametro’s main store.  To get the prizes, you’ll need to joint the free Free Dove group, and then hunt for the red heart-shaped boxes all over both sims.  You’ll find some really fantastic prizes this round, including lingerie, robes, makeup, nail polish and even skins.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE robe sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique & Small and Medium.
  • FREE lingerie in BOM layers and an Omega Applier
  • FREE nail polish with appliers for Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE lipstick in BOM and Omega appliers
  • FREE eyeshadow in BOM and Omega appliers

You’ve got til Feb 28th to take part!

Happy Hunting!

Prickly

Prickly

I’m not usually a massive fan of animal prints.  It may have something to do with watching endless episodes of SCTV and Edith Prickley when I was young (holy Canadian reference).  However, once in a while I come across something that is cute, wearable and maybe gives me a bit of jungle fever!  Or…you know…something like that!

Feeling Free

There’s a new addition to the insanely extensive and generous piles of free goodies at The Free Dove!  Reed has brought this lovely animal print minidress (there are also some solid colours and florals in the HUD), as well as the necklace and shoes you see in my photo.  They all go really well together, which inspired me to get it all on and have a night on the town.  To get yours (and the bajillion other lovely freebies at The Free Dove), just join their free group and click on the boxes on Reed’s table.  Couldn’t be easier!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter_006Just Tara and I and a mug of hot chocolate taking a stroll through the snow at dusk.  Tara loves the snow.  Me, not so much.  I get cold very quickly so I do much prefer sl snow.  I do however, *always* love a nice yummy steaming cup of hot chocolate!  I don’t drink coffee at all, and only enjoy herbal tea when the mood strikes me, but being the big kid I am, nothing warms me like a chocolate-y mug of goodness!

I got this cozy jacket and scarf combo at Vips Creations, it’s a group gift and her group is only 2L to join!  The scarf is separate from the jacket and so you can wear it without the scarf if you so choose!  She has numerous group gifts available.

The jacket and scarf come in:

  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

The boots are a group gift from HH (Hilly Haalan), the group is free to join and they have an entire room of group gifts for you to grab!  The boots come in:

  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Til next time, stay warm y’all!

Hunting Through Alleyways

Hunting Through Alleyways

Time to do some alleyway fashion posing.  This seems to be a thing that happens a lot in SL.  You know, nip down an alleyway and be super fashion about the whole thing.   I will pose in an alleyway if I must, but only if I get some dumplings after.  Promise?  Ok!

Whose Bags?

I’m heading back to The Free Dove today, purveyors of all things free and fantastic.  They’re upping the ante this month by bringing back their monthly hunts!  It’s been a few years, so it’s super exciting that this tradition is back in full force.  Looks like each month there will be a new designer featured, and to kick things off it’s MYBAGS.  The way it works is that you join the free Free Dove group, then search The Free Dove for 5 little gift boxes.   Each one contains one of the bags you see in the vendor ad below.  If you want the other 5, just head on over to MYBAGS and search for 5 boxes there!  That’s 10 fun gifts all for free.   I’m super excited!  I picked up the #1 bag, and to be honest I’m not sure if I grabbed it at The Free Dove or MYBAGS, but that’s all part of the fun.

And More!

While I was at The Free Dove, I also picked up these fun sparkly pants by Wellmade and the matching shoes (sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet).  You always know you’ll end up with a great outfit for free when you visit.  Again, just join the free group and the giant amount of gifts are yours for the taking!

Macarons + Me = Love

Macarons + Me = Love

If there is one thing I love with an unsurpassed passion, it is the completely and utterly un-humble macaron.  I could wax poetic for hours about their crispy yet chewy exterior, the creamy interior, or the flavours galore.  But really, the best thing about macarons to me is the fact that they are so perfectly pretty, so inescapably charming, and entirely frivolous in every way.  Their penchant for pastel makes me gleeful any time they are near.  Le sigh.  What were we talking about again?  Oh right…freebies!

Pink and Perfect

This salacious dress from Kaithleen’s is entirely impractical in RL, but utterly wearable in SL.   Don’t you just love the dichotomy of it all?   Happily, you can grab this fun outfit for free over at The Free Dove!  It was recently added to their extremely large collection of freebies, which you’ll have plenty of fun getting lost in.  Join their group for free, and you’ll get this pretty dress as well as a green version, with loads and loads of other gorgeous gifts too.  Yay!
