Crazy Cat Lady

Crazy Cat Lady

I don’t think anyone really sets out to become a “Crazy Cat Lady.” I think it’s something that sort of claims you. From the first kitten/cat that enters your life, the seed of cat lady-ness (or in some cases, crazy cat guy-dom)  germinates. I also think that from then on other cats know you’re now a “cat person” and they find you. Whether it be a stray kitten meowling for help in the parking lot where you work, or adoption ads from animal shelter pages on social media… they find you. Suddenly you find yourself in this situation, crouching on the floor with several of what you now refer to as your fur babies.

All the kitties aside, I do have some fantastic freebies to share with you. My top is a free group gift by UNA at the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event. My stylish bun is a freebie as well. It’s a free gift at SHEGO. Keep reading for details about both free finds, while I herd these silly cats into the kitchen for some food and water.

UNA

Yes, you read that right. There is an event titled Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It’s geared toward the recent influx of chest sizes choices with some of the female bodies. The important part here is that UNA has a free group gift at the event. This cute top is free to all UNA group members. There’s a group joiner at the IBTC event, and the UNA group is free to join. This top comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with lots of options. There’s also a cool glowing UNA logo on the back of the shirt, and an optional glowing UNA pin that attaches on the front of the shirt.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Petite, Flat, Original), MeshBody Legacy (Perky, Original), Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

SHEGO

Once again I’ve been doing some exploring in Second Life, and I’m glad I did. I came across a hair shop called SHEGO that has this ultra cute top bun for free. There’s no group needed, just purchase the hairstyle from the vendor for zero linden. This style comes with an Omega applier hair base, and a system layer hair base. The bun part of the style, and the side wisps are mesh.

In a quest to enjoy some sunshine and get some Vitamin D, Blue and I have taken to exploring bright beachy locations. These little excursions have led us to some pretty cool places. Not to mention that the promise of adventure is also probably the best way to get me out of my beloved pajamas. lol

Speaking of not being in pajamas, my colorful t-shirt dress is a free gift by UNA at Second Life’s 17th Birthday shopping event. It comes in rainbow, black, and white. My cute chunky heart earrings are a free SL17B gift by NeverWish. I thought they were perfect with the rainbow “Road Trip” dress by UNA. I’m kind of digging the whole ’80s vibe this look gives. Blue picked up a few freebies at the SL17B Shop & Hop event also. His flip-flops are the free SL17B gift from Native Urban, while the cool ring he’s wearing is the free mens gift at SL17B by Lapointe & BastChild. There’s a ladies version of the ring as well. Blue’s shirt and shorts are both hunt prizes on the AllStuff hunt. His cool floral sleeveless hoodie is a dollarbie hunt prize at Waffles, while his casual linen shorts are a free hunt gift at UnderDog. The AllStuff Hunt ends June 30th, so don’t wait and miss these!

Finally, you can get a little bit of outdoor summer fun in your own backyard by picking up this cool outdoor bar by Muniick for just 60 linden.

It’s the perfect addition to your patio or outdoor kitchen.

All aflutter

Hearts a flutter

Hey FabFree. Are you ready for some awesome Role Play goodies? Both the free kind and the outta your wallet kind? I swear every time I go to We ❤ Role Play... I am not going to spend a lot of Lindens. And every time… I fail. But what can I do? The designers and venders are so gorgeous and I need that millionth pair of wings! Right?

Take flight

Anyway, We ❤ Role Play is in full swing and it’s loaded with free and cheap gifts. My first stop was at the Annex booth where I grabbed this fantastic chiton “Livinia”. I love the soft rose pink and the details in the belt and hem are gorgeous. It does leave you… um… exposed on the left side. But that is a historical detail. So I just made some my hair preserved my modesty.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza -Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Collared

I also picked up this beautiful necklace for free from Una. I don’t normally bother with much jewelry but this piece is so pretty. The details and textures are really well done and this is one piece I will be keeping and wearing.

 

The We ❤ Role Play event runs until the end of May for your shopping pleasure.

I Don’t Play, I Slay

I Don't Play, I Slay

I’m mixing my metaphors today because I can’t decide if I’d rather go all mystical and Halloweeny or gush incessantly about the backdrop which is the SL version of Todrick Hall’s “Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels” video, which I’m obviously obsessed with.  So here’s what I’ll go with, I am a magical mystical witchy type thing who just happens to not play, but just slay.  Yessss.

Mystical Corsetry

My corset and long skirt attachment are gifts I picked up over at Una.  There are quite a few group gifts there that you can grab by joining their group for FREE.  I went with this pretty little bit of corsetry as it makes me fairly happy.  You’ll need to provide your own knickers though, cuz this one doesn’t seem to come with.  There are several different colours in the pack, so you can go as bright or dark as you like!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya

Girl, What Did That Girl Just Say Girl?

Ok, so if you don’t know the song “Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels” (warning: some strong language), then get on that ASAP because it will be stuck in your head forever.  This backdrop by Varonis is a perfect copy of the background in the video for the song, and when I saw it I was audibly squeeing.  I’ve been mulling over which line from the song to use, and I can’t decide because there are far too many good ones and I’ll just end up saying “I don’t dance I werk!” at you for ages.  Anyway, go grab this awesome backdrop at Varonis – join their group for free and it’s all yours!

That’s all!

Zig A Zig Ahh!

Zig a Zig Ahh!

The year was 1996, and I was standing by a lake with a bunch of friends.  The summer had just begun, and all things grunge were starting to wear a little thin.  It was on that fateful day in 1996, when the sun was shining on the water and the snapping turtles were being especially jerky, that I first came in contact with my destiny – The Spice Girls.  The semi-jarring sounds of “Wannabe” floated at us from a nearby cabin, and from that moment on, it was all about Girl Power, Union Jacks, and saying “Zig Ah Zig Ahhh!” as much as possible.  It was meant to be, what can I say!

Group Gift Power

I won’t try and wax too poetic about my love for the Spice Girls, but they did bring me out of angry teenager land to a bright, fun time full of Chupa Chup lollipops and a blonde wig or two (don’t ask).  When I saw this group gift over at Una, I couldn’t say no.  I have a weakness for the ubiquitous catchphrase of the late 90’s, which still resonates within me to this day.  This top comes in black, blue and pink versions for your viewing pleasure! Anyway, to get your own hop over to Una, join the group for 50 Lindens, and this gift (plus a bunch of others) is all yours!  Score!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink

Shouting is Fun

Another important facet of Spice Girl-dom is to make sure you’re shouting as loud as you can (after all, they used to say “Silence is Golden, But Shouting is Fun).  I found the perfect lipstick for shouting over at Collabor88.  It looks just like a mini disco ball!  If you head over to the Sintiklia booth, you’ll find there’s a wearable demo which comes with appliers for Genus and Catwa heads as well as an Omega applier.  Pretty cool eh?

I’m off to slam it to the left, and shake it to the right!

Trimming the Tree

trimming the tree

A little more sparkle for the tree, don’t you think? More lights and ornaments? … absolutely! After all that gift shopping I did I need the tree to be just as spectacular. Okay… I admit… I may be just a little Christmas Crazy. OCD = Obsessive Christmas Decorating!

Spruced Up

I found this lovely dress from Una at the Epiphany Holiday Round for just 75L per play. I love the spruce green and the short but modest style. The ‘Mariena’ gacha features this short dress in six colors, a long dress, a cardigan and the short dress wrapped in Christmas lights is the Rare.

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!

If you love Junbug dresses… today is your lucky day! Junbug has generously set out their beautiful mesh Antoinette dress in three different colors for just 30L each. I’m showing you the lovely lavender shade  in the picture above. This dress has a cinched waist and a full skirt with a pretty bust on it and is classic Junbug quality. It would be beautiful for a formal setting… or perfect for roleplay. But don’t delay! This is a Saturday only deal! You only have until the stroke of midnight SLT!

Soft Lavender 2

I paired my new pretty Junbug dress with the latest June group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group fee is 200L but remember… you get access to lots of past group gifts and in addition there is a group exclusive lucky letter board inside the store for shoppers. And that’s not all! There are two additional lucky boards in the main-store that are completely FREE… no group required! This pretty necklace comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between three metal choices: silver (shown), gold, or black — for lots of versatility!

Happy Saturday!

Being green doesn’t make you evil.

witchygreen_001Hello again my pretties. *cackles* How many of you lovely readers have seen the musical Wicked? I went a few years ago, and loved it! I enjoyed seeing a different side to the story of the wicked witch. So for this Halloween, I’ve decided to put together a look that I think says wicked witch…who’s fun and cool, and not evil at all! I promise, I was not stirring up some evil potion in that cauldron, it was just supper, really! witchygreen_002

Ok ok, so it all started with the latest free group gift from Sugar Button Boutique. How cute is this dress! This short Halloween dress in brown is fitted mesh, in a few different sizes, and I think it is a great alternative to what you would normally see a green-skinned witch dressed up in. You know the look, long, black, maybe a little ragged, cloak/dress of some kind. While there is nothing wrong with that, as I said, I wanted fun, cool…normal. LOL. The Sugar Button Boutique group is L$100 to join, but there are past group gifts still available, so it’s more than worth it.

witchygreen_008Needing a little bling, I found the coolest bat leg chain accessory at the current round of The Fantasy Collective, and it is from Una. It is non-rigged mesh, so you can adjust it to your heart’s content (I made mine a touch smaller to fit with my leg size). If you have yet to wander around the Fantasy Collective this round, make sure when you land, you join the free group, as this leg chain, along with a whole whack load of other goodies, is free as part of a little trick or treat set up that is for group members only. All of the participating vendors have a pumpkin beside their booths, and all you need to do is touch the pumpkins to receive either a trick, or a treat. Trust me, they are all treats! witchygreen_006

Next I needed shoes. Seriously, as I was thinking of what I could put on, a well-timed notice from the Shey group showed up with these awesome black boots attached! The Shey Hallow Boot’s are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. No special feet required. The group is free to join, and you just have to check the notices to grab these free boots. Remember, group notices only last 2 weeks, so don’t wait.

witchygreen_009

Lastly, I wanted to show that it’s not always flying monkeys that we wicked witches use as companions. I just so happened to find the cutest little pumpkin headed ghost in my travels. His name is George, but he is so cute, that I call him Georgie. He is available, for free, at the !Ohmai store. He was created during a livestream tutorial for mesh making here in SL, and since he turned out so nice, Anya Ohmai, the creator, decided to bring him inworld and give him away to everyone. Warning, he does moan and groan a lot, but I think it’s ghost for ‘look how cute I am’.

Now before I leave, I just wanted to mention the perfect green skin I am wearing. Unfortunetely, it does not quite fall in our L$75 and under guidelines, but, it is such a great deal, I couldn’t not tell you all. The lovely Lumiya Rae of Lumae has put out 3 versions of the beautiful Niska skin, in the ghoulish Wicked tone, for only L$100 each! Each skin comes with 5 options for eyebrows, all the appliers you could ever ask for, and even the cute pointed ears I have on. Now you see why I had to mention it. You have until November 6th to get them at this price, and then they go up to L$425 each.

Alrighty, I think this cool witch is done for now. My soup is starting to smell a little less like soup, and more like a burnt potion. Oops! That’s what I get for not paying attention. *cackles again* I am going to go try to save it. Until next time, TTFN 🙂
