Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale

“Fairy tales were not my escape from reality as a child; rather, they were my reality — for mine was a world in which good and evil were not abstract concepts, and like fairy-tale heroines, no magic would save me unless I had the wit and heart and courage to use it widely.”
Terri Windling

Crazy times

Trying to keep up

I can’t say that Christmas is really my thing. The grocery store become like a battleground when people are trying to get their last minute items for their luxurious Christmas dinners. It’s a whole bunch of crazy but even though I prefer to just calmly have some pizza by candlelight in a quiet room, I do my best to blend in and pretend to enjoy it…

A nice thing about Christmas are all the presents that given away in SL. What was even more special was that the Men Cave event has a very creative looking Christmas tree with gifts underneath it for the guys. That’s how I found myself this fun Christmas sweater by FashionNatic.

Even though the sweater makes me blend in more with the Christmas crowd, I was thankful to find a free mustache with goatee which allowed me to get some heavy metal looks and some glasses to make me look smarter than I actually am.

In need of coffee

In need of coffee

It’s one of those mornings where I wished that I would drink coffee. I used to love sleeping, like most people probably do, but ever since my nights have been filled with nightmares it has just not been that fun anymore.

This morning I had some time so I just looked through my inventory to see what kind of freebies I have collected. There is quite a lot of them, so I felt like it was time to blog about some more while I was sipping my tea and trying to wake up.

The hair
My friend showed me this store called Olive and I have gathered a few hairstyles from there. For free, of course. This particular one I’m wearing comes up on the Midnight Mania board every once in a while, but the others are also great. Beside that they have over a dozen of Lucky Letter boards out with other hairstyles, so if you have a little patience you can easily add some new nice hair to your inventory.

The outfit
This mesh shirt and pants from No Name only come in standard sizes (XXS-L) but again, with the use of some alphas you can make it fit on most mesh bodies. I liked it since I have discovered that finding pants for women is maybe even harder than finding something nice and free for men… It’s all short skirts! Not that I’m complaining… but I can imagine that not everyone is into that.

It also comes with a hud that allows you to color the shirt, belt and pants all separately which is a nice little extra.

Pretend vacation

Vacation

I have not been on a vacation in quite some time and I won’t be going anywhere soon, so all I can do is dream about it and pretend. I found this nice boat and imagined what it would be like to have one, to sail places and have it docked at some beautiful, tropical location, then wake up in the morning and get ready for a swim in the clear water.

Sweatpants
One thing that is very important is to at least bring some comfortable pants with you. These from <Kalback> were just perfect for that. They come with a hud that allows you to pick several options for fabrics and colors. Even for the boxers you can pick several fun colors and patterns! And that is all for free, if you join the free L’Homme group.

The facial hair
Of course I would not be shaving much, so I was glad I found that Mister Razzor also had a gift out for the Men Only Hunt. It comes for Catwa and Omega, both in black and a tintable version.

Repairs Needed…

Repairs Needed!

My old jalopy needs more than a few repairs. I was under the hood and dropped a wrench. Thankfully my glasses saved my eyes! But my glasses are definitely worse for wear…

Oh hey! If you haven’t taken the plunge to SLB15, it’s time to bust your way in. I picked up a couple of cute, cute gifts I had to share.

Truth is giving away this gorgeous pigtail style hair in a fatpack (it comes with or without bangs and includes a facemask with a color change hud as well). Plus they have several beautiful styles out for 50% off.

Nearby is AppleMay and their gift is the broken nerd glasses… I couldn’t resist putting them on to show them off. Repairs needed! Ha!

Enjoy the event 🙂

Glamour

Glamour

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.

I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.

I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.

These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.
