Three Cheers For The Red White And Blue!

posted by Gidge Uriza

I know I know, I WORE you out last year with nothing but red, white and blue the week before July 4. I’m letting you OFF the hook this year with a minimal invasion of Patriotica.

But you didn’t think you’d get away Scot-free did you? I have to look up that phrase! Scott free, scott-free, scot-free – I have no idea. It’s probably some sort of slur even – but they’re my people so I feel free to dog them šŸ™‚

BACK TO MY TOPIC! July 4….putting it to the British Empire –Ā Continental Army style………….We The People…………..

Well, it’s like this. There has been more than a bit of brouhaha this year about the wearing of the flag and while I don’t mind wearing stars and stripes prints I don’t care for wearing ACTUAL flags (which, I note IS NOT THE SAME)……..regardless…….to avoid the drama I opted to salute Old Glory and this important day IN Red White and Blue colors.

The pants and top are from the beauties at AXEL and are a super pick up any time of year. They come in a variety of colors but these holiday colors are perfect, aren’t they?

But now, the finishing touch – the JEWELRY! YAY EarthStones has once again created beautiful July 4 Jewelry! Last year the jewelry was amazing and once again Abraxxa has created lovelies PLUS SHOES! Wheee! Continue reading

The One Where I Do The Happy Dance

Posted by Gidge Uriza


I’m doing the happy dance. I’m seriously doing a dance of joy and this was the best way to show you. WHY? WHY?

Well, it all started like this, first I popped into Fleur cuz she’s got all her skins 1/2 price and I like her boutique skins – she’s got some pretty faces and I wanted to take a long gander at what she had just to see if there were any I needed. (cough, cough).

While I’m there studying face by face…I just notice she’s got a freebie up on the wall. And I say, SELF – I wonder what is IN that freebie? I check it’s contents and it’s several skins I HAVE….but it’s also a nice assortment for “newbies” of her Vivant skins which I had never tried.Ā  A range of tones, etc. Continue reading

Quick Look: Lemania's Pot of Gold

posted by Gidge Uriza

Given out by Lemania as one of her plethora of group gifts this one is going to be perfect for all you Irish Lasses and other Lasses who want to play at being Irish for the day.

Just enough lace to say you’re Lace-Curtain Irish and not Shanty-Irish! (All the Irish readers just screamed at me- shut up my whole family is Irish!) Continue reading

One Day Only Freebie At Lemania

posted by Gidge Uriza

Red and pink have been the color of the season so I was kind of tickled to see such an icy winter blue being given away at Lemania to her group.Ā  Like so many of her designs, it’s a fancy – there’s nothing practical about it.

Which is exactly what I like. Good grief why play on the Grid and be PRACTICAL? (note – I think this dress is being retired also based on the description on it) Continue reading

Freebie Love

posted by Gidge Uriza

Okay I don’t have a song.Ā  This one is just a quick but I wanted to show you some great free stuff, both hunt and NON Hunt.

The clothes are from Merlynn’s Closet which is new to me. I TPd over on a notice of a free outfit to check them out and I’m really digging the casual pieces she gave away (pictured). The top was available in multiple layers (YAY! GOOD CREATOR!)Ā  with different options and the pants are a nice rich texture that has good details. So YAY! I’m not sure these are still free but their quality warrants a visit! I’m totally going back. Continue reading

Unrequited Love

World was on fire, no one could save me but you

Strange what desire will make foolish people do

I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you

and I never dreamed that I’d need somebody like you…. Continue reading

How's About a Free Dress?

posted by Gidge Uriza

Cajsa has been singing the praises of Little Rebel anytime we have to go somewhere that low ARC is appropriate, and sometimes just because she wants to. I was one of those people plagued by the SYSTEM SKIRT conundrum (they didn’t work if you don’t know – for some of us) so I never really saw the POINT of bothering with shopping at Little Rebel.

It almost seemed cruel to taunt myself with clothes I couldn’t actually WEAR OUT.

Who likes free shoes?

That’s me raising my hand and heading over to Fishy Strawberry to host a lucky chair party — which is my way of saying that with the right attitude, waiting for your letter can be downright fun. You just crank the music and invite your friends sto join you as their letters come up. If you’re like me, your friends will hang out and invite their friends, too, to keep that chair moving. Of course, once you win your shoes, you can’t disappear because by then some friends and friends of friends have come so you need to help them get their shoes, too. That’s why it’s a party. It can last for hours…as it did in this case. I think I won my shoes after about 15 minutes, but I must have spent 3 hours in the store.Ā  And that’s the point, because, not only did I walk out with the super shoes you will see after the cut, but I blew my budget and bought way, way, way too much stuff including everything I am wearing.

Quick Look- Pumpkin 3.14 from AXEL

posted by Gidge Uriza

Just a quick one! It’s Thanksgiving and this tank is one of four freebies from AXEL that are out today! I’m in love with AXEL but only so far had time to pick up this sweet little skirt to go with the tank. They have several “shops” each with a different theme – which is great – sort of like a department store. Continue reading
