• I’ll take a bag check. (Freebie).

    I’ve had an “interesting” bat collar in my invent for quite a while and I was waiting for Halloween to show it to you but I decided it was time to check out the Absence shop. The bat collar is still there but I’m sure I’d not seen this dress before and so I grabbed it and TP’d home.

    I will say its SO GOOD! Yeah, ok its just a “LBD” but the quality is there with the wrinkles, folds and the fine lace on the cups.

    You get a Hud of 3 lush dark evening shades, 1 pretty pink and the last one is white and I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve found since the PBS update whites are TOO BRIGHT! so to find a really lovely cotton white shade was a pleasant change. You can also change the fine lace detailing as well.

    The fits are limited to just: Legacy, Reborn & Waitfu which is a shame but still grab it as its quite a forgiving style. Apart from the bat collar there was another couple of gifts but I grabbed this and TP’d home so quickly I didn’t even look.

    PS. This outfit screams for a bag so I dug this one out of my invent, if it is a freebie I will an update.

  • Wish you were here


    I sent you a postcard
    Thought it would be funny
    Would have sent a souvenir
    But they took all my money
    It's pretty warm down here but it ain't sunny
    And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
    Wish you were here

      I tried to call you
    Long distance operators that only stall you
    Besides the damn rates are so high
    They just appall you
    And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
    Wish you were here

    It started out a nice vacation
    Left the station right on time
    Can't get a ticket to get me home, dear
    They just don't have too many flights from twilight zone, dear
    So don't forget to feed my cats
    Spot and Jerome, dear
    And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
    Wish you were here

    Seeing all the sights here
    I'm getting lonely
    I'd show you all the film I took if they would only
    Let me go home
    Dear, sincerely
    I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
    Wish you were here

    Hey Fabs!  Quick one today, as you only have a few days left!

    It looks as though the MIIX Event has become a reliable source of gifts.  Last week Sky showed you a hoodie and some face tattoos and mentioned there were a lot more gifts for the ladies, so I went over to take a peek, and came back with so much!

    • Free Dress by [LA BELLE] (full color hud and sized for: Maitreya/Petite, Legacy/Perky, Reborn/Waifu, Kupra)
    • Free Eyeshadow by [Morning Star] (BOM in multiple colors)
    • Free Lipstick by PAIX – Lelutka  HUD

     

    I love the corduroy texture of this dress, I miss cords!  Also, I must mention that the lipstick by PAIX is named Y2K, and it’s so perfectly 90s, including the lipliner.

    There’s also a new gift for Fab Free members up at the event!

    The MIIX Event is open until July 20th so get yourselves over there and nab up those gifts (and do some shopping if you like!)  You need to join the free group to pick up the gifts.

  • Looking for Flamingos

    I saw a photo on flickr of this sim and a flamboyance of flamingos all hanging out in the water so I decided to come and see if I could find them. I wanted to do a photo with them and I was quite excited. However, I looked all over the sim and couldn't find the pink birdies anywhere. I searched everywhere and come to the following theories:
    1. The birds all flew away.
    2. They knew I was looking for them and hid from me.
    3. The sim has been redone and the flamingos retired.
    It is a mystery, but I still enjoyed this stunning sim and will be back for some other pics in different spots. Lovely beaches and a Greek island vibe.

    I have created a wee oasis here on the beach and I will be doing some glamping this week because the view is awesome and I can go swimming when I want. I can also jet ski or paddle board if the mood takes me. Of course, there will be no cooking.  I will be getting takeout or visiting a local restaurant. This is not camping!

  • How Could You?

    Sometimes some songs hit too close to home and though the stories may be different,
    the pain will always be the same...


    A single blow to the face that almost made her lose consciousness,
     now trapped between the hard cold cement floor and the brutality of her assaulter ...




    She walked in with a beautiful smile into the dentist's office where he worked as a dentist assistant.
    It was the weekend, so no one was there, only him waiting for her to show her around, as he
    had promised. She was happy and eager to spend that time with him, even if it was at his workplace.
    She really liked him, she liked him so much that since the day she met him, she couldn't stop smiling.
    He was older, but she didn't care. They were just friends, good friends, though she had a sweet crush on
    him, innocent and pure. He had always treated her delicately and sweetly. He was respectful and used
    the most beautiful words on her that would melt her heart. However, some of her friends didn't trust
    him, "He looks too good to be true." they would tell her. She however felt blessed by his presence in her life.

    As he guided her through the dentist's office, he began " playfully " teasing her.
    "You not scared to be here with me alone?" he laughed. "I might be the bad wolf and you little
    red riding hood." He laughed louder. She smiled at him and said that nothing scared her. "Ah, really,
    nothing?" and smirked. She laughed happily and repeated, "Yes, nothing scares me!".
    She just wanted to appear brave. Her innocence and youth didn't allow her to see that at that point his
    playfulness, which was something he had never done beforewas a warning for her to get out, to get
    away, and so she continued exploring the rooms and stopping to read some of the informative posters on
    the walls.

    Once they had reached one of the back rooms, she suddenly felt her body being pushed hard against
    the shelves and his body tightly pressed against her. His hands then began to touch her body.
    She began to cry and screamed at him to stop. But he wouldn't. Somehow, she managed to get loose
    and tried to reach for the door, but a blow to her face stopped her and sent her across the room, almost
    making her lose consciousness. As her head hit the cement floor, everything became a blur and confusion.

    Now her petite body trapped between the hard cold cement floor and the brutality of her assaulter
    began to tremble uncontrollably as he began to pull her clothes off. She begged him to stop
    and repeatedly screamed NO! But her screams were rapidly silenced by his hand strongly
    pressed against her face, making it difficult for her to breathe. Every second that passed her body
    began to feel weaker and weaker as he continued the assault. 

    Her whole being became numb as her tears kept running down her face. There was no more strength left
    in her. She closed her eyes and wished they never open again. He finally removed his hand from her 
    face while he was still inside her, and kissing her lips he asked, "I thought you said nothing scared you,
    so why are you crying?" as continued the abuse he asked again, "Isn't this what you wanted?"

    The noise from the busy street just outside sounded so far away, even the Tick Tocks from the clock in
    the room. Time stood still or moved too slowly. She opened her eyes as he continued and turning her face
    to the little light coming from the small window in the room, she continued to silently cry.
    She was being robbed of her first beautiful experience, of being touched gently and lovingly
    respectfully, and cherished. Now, she lay on a cold floor covered by her tears and the brutality of
    his actions.

    She walked away that day feeling as if a big part of her had died. She felt pain and shame in every
    part of her body that he had touched and kissed and taken by force and without her permission.
    She felt ashamed and guilty as if it was her fault for staying alone with him, for trusting him and
    believing he was a good man, She was afraid people would blame her and judge her and wouldn't
    understand. So she hid her face looking down as she walked down the streets so no one could see
    her tears or know her pain. She wanted to disappear and felt dirty. She wanted to peel off her skin to
    cleanse herself but she knew that what she was feeling was deeper than just the surface. The horrible
    abuse that she had just suffered was now imprinted in the deepest part of her soul and couldn't be 
    erased or forgotten. It had just become now a very horrible and sad part of her life that she would
    be keeping a secret for many years to come.

    He walked away and continued life as if nothing ever happened.

    NO! means NO!

  • Hips don’t lie

    Hips don't Lie

    I have had this belted corset look for a while now, and am a huge fan of it. I often wear the brown belts with gold, just because it stands out so much, but decided that the black and silver was a fun mix today also. The set is all included and actually also comes with a hot choker that I have worn in the past. I wanted to try my hand at mixing stores though, which of course with something like this, was not so easy…the world of fashion in Second Life has definitely changed over the past few years, but what made me laugh is that while a lot of clothing has become more revealing, dresses, tops etc, pants seem to have gone in the other direction, with a lot of pants being higher waisted or just regular fit, and that is hilarious to me, seeing that a billion years ago now pants were getting so low that I had to do a whole post on pubic hair on skins, because the pants were getting so low, everything was falling out…which actually did lead to a change in how skinners did their skins. So I did some thinking, and I thought to myself, I thought ‘SELF! Who will still have some really low rise hip hugging jeans for me to wear with this belted corset’, and myself said “TO CYNFUL”. This actually did happen, and off I went.

    I remember Cynfuls first releases, they were also denim items, and I mention that to Cynthia at least every five years or so. I probably still have them. I also remember she did some denim corsets over jeans like extensions, I need to find those, even though system layers I am on a mission now. So anyway, to Cynful I went and I saw that the Keeper jeans had been updated to include the body I wear now, but to also have the Slink Hourglass (and many others) I go back to, so that is a huge win for me, because I get to have for both. The jeans fit perfectly under the belted corset, as I knew they would, and there is a cute metal belt on them, but that has a toggle on/off switch and can be changed colour wise even if you buy the single colour of jeans. I was also able to change the button on the jeans so it was black not brass, which helped with my monochromatic look. The top is part of the Sega set too (as is the belt) and I have worn it a few times now, because the fatpack has solid colours as well as graphics, and it is just so versatile and pretty the way it drapes, it is also of course made to fit the belt.

    ADE has released this beautiful style of hair with its face framing layers at the front look. I like it because it reminds me of both layer cuts and growing out your bangs looks. It also has left, right and behind the shoulders looks, which we all know is my favourite, and I did start out that way, but decided to go with forward of the body this time, so you see more of the length and how well it fits across the chest, as there are many sizes to choose from.

  • The rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum

    I am not quite sure when the Pandora fashion brand came to be.  What I do know is that since I first saw one of their new releases I was captured by the style of their designs and the quality.  You must check them out when you get a chance.  The dress I am wearing is a new release — beautiful modern vintage style dress with geometric and psychedelic print that comes in the colors of black, white, nude, rose, coral, wine, brown and lemon.  I’m wearing the color nude and using Legacy Perky body.  Also made to fit the dress is the sandals which come in two sizes, low and mid and also in the same colors of the dress.  Find the details below.
