Pulcino @ The Okinawa Summer Festival

Snapshot_007Good afternoon Fabulouses! Have you made a trip to The Okinawa Summer Festival yet? I visited yesterday and found that it offers tons of gifts, dollarbies and lucky boards too. I picked up the Vacation Lace Tunic (Sea) and Slink Appliers [Sky Nails - Limited Colors] as FREE GIFTS at the Pulcino display.  You can also win this same blouse in a lucky board in a different colour if your letter comes up!  The Slink Nail Appliers include three different variations all in the same shade of sky blue to match the free gift blouse.  I won The Cold Black Heart Jewelry Set at Sn@tch on a lucky board, which you will find in the VIP area amongst 7 other fabulous lucky boards!

Queen of Everything

Queen of Everything

Thank Goodness Monday is OVER! There’s nothing like a little retail therapy to make even the worst case of the Mondays all better!

When I was little my mother used to tease me about being the “Queen of Everything” because I was a tad dramatic at times. Okay, I’ll be honest, I still kinda am. Ha! So when I saw the Subscribo gift at Milk Motion, I got grabby hands and had to have it right then. If you’re offended by a little foul language, read no further. The shirt reads “Queen of Fucking Everything”, it is fully mesh, and comes in the black version I’m wearing and a white version. I like that, because all girls can be Princesses, I’m the freaking Queen! ahahaha You can be the Queen too, just run on over to Milk Motion and get this top before it’s gone. To accentuate my queenly attire, I pulled out a past group gift from Epic. This sugary sweet crown is still available for free with an Epic VIP Group Tag. Every Queen needs shoes, I got mine at HollyHood. These “Mecca” heels are the current Group Gift there. I love these shoes, ’cause they are the kind of heels you could wear with anything and look awesome. Go get yours! (All this queen stuff has made me feel bossy.) Last but never least, the thigh tattoos, we all know I love tattoos. This “Crowns” tattoo was just too perfect for the outfit, and at $1 Linden from ECCO, can’t beat it!

Here are the details, go be Queen of Everything!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their hunting!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

If You’re A Bird, I’m A Bird

Snapshot_003Hey Fabulous readers :)  I’m back to share more !Soul with you!  While I was at the !Soul shop the other day picking up the latest group gifts, I noticed a sign at the landing point for The Pink Kawaii Hunt and I did a little hunting and found the hidden icon.  I picked it up for 5L and was pleasantly surprised to see when I opened it up that their TPKH prize is this adorable mesh mini dress and matching handbag.

I have paired up this cute lil summer outfit with the Summer Flower Flats by Poute that are currently being featured at this round of The Cosmo Sales Room in a variety of colours for just 70L each.

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Ever After

A Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]  *Note from Love Trill – this post was done yesterday – The Hair Fair Items are no longer available, but I thought you might enjoy a re-visit from Serena with a fabulous 30L deal from Bite & Claw! 

b&c8_001f

What I miss about childhood is the absolute belief that I will one day marry a prince, become a princess, and live happily ever after. Sadly, real life and old age have proven that theory to be a bust, but at least I can still play dress up and pretend in SL. This gorgeous dress is from Bite&Claw, and if you hurry, you can pick it up on sale for only 30L! My pretty updo is a free gift from LaNoir Soleil at Hair Fair 2014… again, hurry because today is the last day. Oh, and another last minute event you can catch is Lazy Sunday, where you can pick up the sweet Paper Butterflies lamp from Plethora.

Also “fit for a princess” is this vanity table by [CIRCA] – complete with lots of accessories and animations! – available at the current round of, er… Fit For a Princess. Several colors from which to choose! While you’re there, you can also pick up the crown and necklace I’m wearing, and play the [freebird] gacha for a sparkly, royal manicure.

Have a “happily ever after” week!

Any Given Sundae

Any Given Sundae 1

Hello Again, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! In a previous post I mentioned how I’m kinda over this summer heat. Well, there is one thing I very much enjoy that is generally associated with hot weather, ice cream! One of my favorite ways to cool off on a hot day is with a little ice cream. This outfit very much makes me think of strawberry ice cream, which is a personal favorite of mine!

It all started with this over-sized shirt from Cheeky. The top is their July group gift, so just a few days left to grab it up! It is fully mesh and comes with the sunglasses that hang casually from the neck-line. I thought it was perfect for a lazy afternoon. Lucky for me, and for everyone else, I came across a slew of pretty pink gifts to go with my new shirt. The toe-less leggings are a store gift from Flair, there are 3 separate colors in the pack, and they include appliers for Slink Physique along with regular clothing layers. How cute are these knee pads from Skull Designs? Another group gift I could not resist! It’s an addiction for certain. hehehe These knee pads are also mesh, and they are completely free, just wear the group tag! As if things could not get any sweeter, I found the perfect pair of shoes waiting for me in the past notices for HollyHood! Over all, I think it’s a fun casual look, perfect for a lazy day cooling off with some ice cream.

Here are the detail, Enjoy!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.
