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!

Looking Cool When it’s Cool

Looking Cool When it's Cool

There’s something so pleasant about a massive sweater.  It’s like you can cocoon yourself against bad weather and the other evils of the world.  It’s even better when the massive sweater has cute designs on it, so that you can colour the world while also protecting yourself from ickiness.  Here’s to massive sweaters!

But Where?

When I saw this outfit at The Free Dove, I knew it had to be mine!  It’s the latest addition to the collection of freebies at The Free Dove from Hilly Haalan.  The massive cozy sweater and shirt have four different texture options in the HUD, and you’ll also find the purse and shoes/socks in the box too!  To get this cute look, all you have to do is join the free group and click on the box.  There’s always something new and cool to find at The Free Dove – and you can check out all their latest additions on their blog HERE.

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion

Ok, I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark and Halloweeny, but now and then a pop of colour is needed.  I’m sure some readers out there also long for it, so this post is for you!

Now I’m Free

Did you know that The Free Dove gets updated regularly?  There’s always something new for you at SL’s premier freebie outlet.  The owner and organizer, Dove, works really hard to procure free and fabulous finds for the Second Life community.  You can find all the latest updates listed on their blog HERE.  This striking gown from Tiffany Designs is a new addition, and it really makes me think of those optical illusion books that were so hot in the 90’s.  I can’t even remember what they were called (please don’t let it be “optical illusion books”, because that would be semi-embarrassing).  On the same table, you’ll find a matching jewelry set for free, and a pair of shoes (not pictured) that go with the look perfectly.  To get them, and a bajillion other free items, just join The Free Dove group for free!

Je Vois La Vie en Pose

A new round of La Vie en Pose has taken off, and as per usual the designers are spoiling us with free gifts!  Join the La Vie en Pose group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up a free gift from each stall.  There are some really cute poses, and this one from Lyrium is quite different in the fact that it is more of an animation than a pose.  It cycles through a selection of cute movements that are super fun to take pictures of, and are really quite adorable.  There’s lots more!  Head over to La Vie en Pose before October 25th when it all goes aurevoir!

Bye for now!

Pretty Bird

Beautiful Bird

Alright, I think it’s time for a little confession. I think I am a freebie addict. What?! You already knew? lol Of course you did. Thankfully for all of us, we’re in excellent company here. I went on a bit of a freebie shopping spree at The Free Dove recently. It’d been a while since I’d browsed through the goods there, and I found a thing, or three to share with you. It was really a bit difficult to stick to only three, but no one wants to have a ten page blog post so here we are! Along with my finds from LYBRA, and Shiny Stuffs at The Free Dove, I picked up two of the several group gifts at Toksik. As always, credits will be at the bottom, details in the middle. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

LYBRA

I am loving this little dress by LYBRA at The Free Dove. It is free, like everything at The Free Dove. You just have to wear the group tag. The Free Dove group is also free to join. I like the satiny texture of this dress, and the romantic look to it. I feel pretty wearing it. It includes a color change hud with a fatpack of 26 solid color choices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

Shiny Stuffs 

Among my several Second Life shopping addictions (Hey there are worse problems to have!) I definitely tend to collect makeup. Shiny Stuffs has several free gifts at The Free Dove, including a few that have somehow escaped my attention before now. The “Gekischa’s Kiss” lip applier set, and the “Blink!” eye shadow set. There are 10 lipstick shades in the Gekischa’s Kiss gift by Shiny Stuffs, and 9 eye shadow choices in the Blink! set. These freebies come in Catwa appliers only. Don’t forget your Free Dove group tag!

Toksik

I recently came across Toksik, and I have no  idea why I’ve not shopped at this store before. Their style is eclectic and has a touch of fantasy mixed with modern elements. Right now the Toksik store group is 99 linden to join and there are 9 total group gifts currently available. Two of the nine gifts are unisex. I picked up a set of darkly adorable “Dolly” nails, along with the unisex necklace that reads “Heartbreaker.” The nails have 6 color schemes to pick from, and the are adorned with pretty little accents like bows and pearls. The necklace is sized via touch menu, and has 6 metal colors to choose from.

Nail Sizes Included: Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink

Striking the Right Balance

Striking the Right Balance

Some days call for comfort, and others call for a bit of fancy.  Some days call for both, with a happy medium to be found in between.  This outfit seems to me to inhabit that spot somewhere between extreme coziness and elevated dressing.  Oh yes, and it’s free!

Dressing it Up

When you zoom in close to this lovely minidress by Lybra, you’ll see it’s textured in a really cozy knit, but the addition of the panel of gauzy material around the collar really turns this look into something special.  It comes with a rather extensive HUD so you can play around with hues as much as you like.  You can grab this pretty dress for free at The Free Dove!  It was recently added and there are also two other new outfits from Lybra there as well.  Just join the free group, and you gain access to piles and piles of awesome free clothes, accessories and so much more.  Gotta love The Free Dove!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

I didn’t even get a chance to talk about how much I love the green colour!
