A Sweet Start

A Sweet Start

It’s finally the weekend (and a long one where I am! So super TGIF!)!  I’m just going to get right into it and then probably go party.  And by party, I totally mean fall asleep on the couch.  It was a looooong week, y’all!

Vanilla

There’s a new group gift at Vanilla Bae!  This cute bikini is in pretty hue and has some great little tie details on it that make it special.  You’ll find it right in the middle of all the sale items in the store.  To get your own, join the group for just 50L, and boom!  Yours!

To Lounge or Not to Lounge

My inworld component, Ms. Aline clearly knows where I’m heading after I’m done this post – straight to the couch.  But, my RL couch is nowhere near as cute as this one from Astralia!  It’s their latest group gift, and there’s both a cute sofa and chair in the box, and it’s just so adorable I might squee.  The Astralia group is currently 149L to join!

Have a fab weekend, Fab Peeps!

Pretty Little Loves: Raindale & The Beauty Factory

The Beauty Factory & Raindale

Like our fabulous readers, I run out and check out all of Aline’s fabulous finds.  She posted about The Beauty Factory’s awesome 1000L credit here, and I had to run over.  Wow.  What a treat!!!  These are unique threads that are so pretty.  There are a hot pile of group gifts AND the 1000L bought a few very pretty outfits, too!!!  Did I mention the group is FREE???  It was really hard to pick JUST ONE outfit, so I went with the group gift, Megan.  She is so delightful!!!  She comes with both the gown and the panties.  She is both sexy AND classy, and I love that combination! You’ll want to hurry though, this deal ends TODAY!

I also ran over to one of my favorite stores, Raindale, to pick up their March group gifts.  How cute is this set up???  It comes with everything you see except my horse, Dante. The group join cost is 250L, but every month, they have a set of 4-5 themed gifts that you can place out as a group or use individually.

The Luck of the Draw!

Bring on the Night
Ladies, it’s Confessions with Desi.  I miss Gachas.  I loved me a good Gacha event back in the day (like last year).  But, the rules changed and now we have Next Up machines.  I will admit that I am kind of a fan of them, as I am wasting a lot less money on  stuff I don’t want, but I am not standing around for days hoping someone pulls the stuff I don’t like so I can get what I do.  It’s an odd joy when I show up to a machine and there are back to back prizes that I really like.  Such was the case at the Evil Bunny Productions “Up for Grabs” Next Up Event.  The event runs until February 28th.

I picked up the free gifts at some of the vendors and then looked over the machines.  There were some cute things I really wanted, but, alas, they weren’t the next up items…they weren’t even on the board yet…so I will have to wait for a Next Up Yardsale.  But, then….THEN…I got to the Fatal Fashion machine!  Waiting for my 50L pull was this adorable little dress and the next item was, luckily, the matching panties!

The Britches!

How lucky!!!  I quickly scored these two fine articles of virtual bliss for 50L each before someone else jumped in to steal my pull (I mean, that’s never actually ever happened anywhere, but there is a real fear).  I love this cute little outfit!!!

Hiya, today is about group gifts and wonderfully awesome hair. Perfect additions to your weekend play outfit. 🙂

Winter Weekend Wear

Here in the midwest it has been bitterly cold, with the wind chill wayyy down below zero. At home, it’s sweats and flannel jammy pants. But on those occasions when needs must and running (ie errands) have to be done, it’s jeans and sweaters. Siss Boom has put out a beautiful sweater as the newest group gift. This is something I would love to have in RL, though I would put a turtleneck or tee under it, in deference to the weather here. The Siss Boom Singleness Sweater Group Gift is scooped necked long-sleeved & cropped, included in the gift is a 5 color hud with the most beautiful muted textures. And sizes included are enormous. There must be a size for every type of body on the grid. To have this wonderful sweater for your very own, just hop on over and visit Siss Boom, join the group for 50L. And enjoy this sweater and the scads of other gifts available. Quick reminder Siss Boom is closed Friday at sundown and does not reopen again till Saturday at sundown.

The Meadow hairstyle is just 50L. for FLF. The Essentials pack includes a hud with single colors, 2 colors, and style changes. Also included in the pack is the accessory hud, with 12 color changes for the hat, and 8 color changes for the band. Not sure how long this will be sale priced at 50L, so if you would like to take advantage of this offer, plz do so soonish.

Traditions

Traditions

One of the things I’ve been missing in RL is the whole going shopping, then stopping off at a café after to mull over the things I’ve bought with a nice hot drink.  I have been avoiding all the locations of RL that involve humans, and for that reason I am very very very thankful that Second Life exists.  I can live out my shopping traditions, and there are no heavy bags to carry!  Woohoo!

Santa!

Vanilla Bae have got some amaaaazing lucky boards right now, all with their signature strippable clothing as prizes!  When you’re in the store, you’ll find several Santas sitting underneath each lucky board, which made me giggle for quite a while as I waited for my letter to come up.  I was lucky enough to win this super adorable romper – isn’t it sweet?  As mentioned, it is strippable – which means you can give access to people so they can remove the clothing from you.  If that’s totally not your thang, don’t worry – there’s a PG version in the box as well.  To grab this cute prize (as well as the other really really lovely ones), just join the Vanilla Bae group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up!  Grab some friends and take your photo with the multiple Santas while you’re at it!  Oh, and don’t forget the other amazing group gifts – totally worth the 50L join fee!

Oh Yes!

There have been some really nice free hair gifts floating around recently, and I’m super excited about this really lovely style from Exile!  It’s cropped and half up, and comes in a full fatpack of colours.  You can’t say no to that, right?  Even better, the group is free to join, making this really versatile look completely free!  Just click on the vendor with your tag active and it’s all yours!

Biscuit time!

The Art of Zen

The Art of Zen

I’ve been so busy the last few days sorting through Black Friday ads, that I’ve barely had a moment to myself.  Time to get a little zen, and a little green….and lots of free!

Hunting for Deals

Black Friday is all about the sales, but sometimes when all the dollar signs are floating about, you just really need a respite for some freebies.  Happily, at Vanilla Bae there’s a little bit of both going on.  If you hunt around the store looking for the Christmas cookies (in the shape of Christmas trees), each one contains a free item of clothing.  It’s not the easiest hunt in the world, won’t lie – but you’ll get there in the end.   If you know Vanilla Bae well, you’ll know that their clothes are also strippable, so these free clothes are pretty darn awesome.  Don’t wait too long – the hunt ends on the 29th!  Also, you can find all the sizes in the handy key below!

Zen hunting, it’s a thing!

Nugs Not Drugs

Nugs Not Drugs

I must confess that I have a penchant for chicken nuggets.  To be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t enjoy them.  Dipped in a bit of barbecue sauce… le sigh!  Wait, wasn’t I supposed to be discussing freebies?  Oh right!

At Addams

There’s a little hidden (ish) gift at Addams right now that will only be around for this weekend!  They have an outfit out on discount at the moment, and if you look at the ad you’ll see there’s also a gift for members of the Addams VIP group.  The Addams group is only 5L to join, and there are plenty of group gifts to pick up.  This little bralette comes in both see-through and opaque versions, with plenty of lovely colours in the HUD.  Don’t wait too long, the gift is really only supposed to be around this weekend.  Take a peek at the photo below to see where to click to get your gift.

And Some Vanilla

The sweet little choker I’ve got on is a free gift over at Vanilla Bae.  No need to join a group to get this little gift, just click on the box and buy for 0L.  You’ll find this gift located on a little table by the events boards.  There are plenty of colours in the HUD, and it comes sized for Kupra, Legacy and Maitreya as well as an unrigged option.

Hmm… sweet & sour or barbecue?

Decisions!

Thatched Cottage Dreams

 

Thatched Cottage Dreams

There is something so heartwarming and serene about a cute little thatched cottage.  I love the magical aura they emit – something like out of a fairy story.   The thought of living in a cute cottage, your feet up in front of the fire, is so comforting.  Then, suddenly you might get the urge to get completely dolled up and head out to some glamourous locale, only to return by midnight to a cup of tea and some biscuits in  your little cottage.

Vanilla Cookies

There’s a new group gift at Vanilla Bae!  Always an exciting prospect, since their clothing is just so much fun.  Not only do you get this pretty dress in fatpack of colours, you also get the matching clutch and the adorable shoes too.  Purrrfect for Valentine’s Day!  If you know about Vanilla Bae, then you’ll know that they specialize in strippable clothing.  There are two versions in the box:  the PG version and the Adult version which allows you choose people who can take your clothes off bit by bit.  Ooh, salacious!  The Vanilla Bae group is 50L to join, and you’ll find a few other super cute gifts on the easels by the group gift area too.

Sleepless Nights

Fabfree Post: Sleepless nights

Sleepless Nights at the Chatou Visualize It

This very seductive Delilah Dress from Vanilla Bae is perfection wrapped up in silk! The dress comes in PG and Adult versions and in two options, White and Rose. The rose is a cute pattern for the bottom where the top is a nice pale rose color, I opted for the white here because I felt it more classy for a “middle of the night” shot. It was captured perfectly here and you can see my “Sleepless” face looking into the night sky for something to help me sleep. I won’t be losing any sleep over the cost as it was FREE, I just needed to find that cute little sun from the WOH6 to snag it!! You still have time to run through the shops and get all the gifts as it ends June 30, 2020

Delilah Dress Fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

There is also another noteworthy item on this hunt from THIS IS WRONG
The tattoo features cute tapes as tattoos on both legs.  It’s a good deal for L$10 too. The tattoo comes in light and dark options which change the colors to a lighter tone or darker. This is another WOH6 Prize so be sure to take a peek at the list before times up and get the goodies while you can.

Tape Tattoo:

  • Omega Applier
  • Maitreya Applier
  • Legacy Applier
