Lucky S@bbia

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! My RL weather isn’t quite co-operating with the spring calendar, but I can play long in Second Life!  Today I’m wearing a springy type outfit that I put together with some free and inexpensive items I thought you might like to hear about!  I found this great mesh Peplum Tunic in a group lucky board at S@bbia.  It changed to “L” the minute I walked in as if it was fate I should have it.  If only that always happened – LOL!.   It was my lucky day I guess :). The group is free to join, and you’ll want to join anyways to grab these fantastic mesh denim shorts  that go so nicely with the Lucky Board prize top!  While I was in the S@bbia shop looking around, I grabbed this adorable Ribbon Straw bag for 50L.

If you are in the market for a new skin, make sure you check out The Happy Bunny Gacha Fair.  Wow Skins is participating and has their new Rima skin available in three skin tones at 100L per play along with slink appliers, tango appliers and a shape too!  Below I am displaying the six makeup variations you can play for in the Bronze skin tone.

How to keep warm on those chilly nights!

A new month always means new wonderful group gifts.. and here today, are a few that I found on my SL travels! I love the snuggley clothing you can find through the Winter months as I am such a cuddle bunny. I love fluffy jumpers and warm jackets, crackling fires and cosy nights in, blankets and hot chocolate!

These gorgeous group gifts are just perfect to keep toasty warm on nights out or nights in, which ever your preference is!

One of my favourite things to do in SL is decorating homes. While I was at The Chapter Four earlier today, I decided to try for the Rare prize that was in the gacha from *ionic* .. and I was entirely shocked when I managed to win it after only a couple of attempts. I loved it so much I decided to dress it up and use it as a backdrop for my pictures today. I managed to find some beautiful bargain furnishings to brighten it up!

Look Ma! No Meat Hands!

 Good morning Fabulouses! I did a little shopping this weekend at S@bbia and on marketplace and put together a couple of outfits I thought you might be interested in seeing.  Maybe you’ll find a piece or two to add to an outfit of your own ;)

Snapshot_005

In the photo above, I am wearing S@bbia‘s Blue Knit Sweater which you can find in the lucky board for free if your letter comes up.  This is a group lucky board, however it’s free to join, and you are going to want to snag the new group gift while you are there too, (which I will tell you about in a bit)!  I purchased the Flare Skirt in Grey for 70L that was sitting beside the lucky boards and accessorized this ensemble with some treats on marketplace!

If you are a good girl too, you can pick up the Good Girl legs tattoo in the Barn Owl shop for 10L.  My Layered Sock Boots are a free gift in the Blackburns marketplace store, and they come with a HUD that allows you to change 4 sections of the sock which means – these will match about anything!  I have shown this TuTy’s FREE Mesh Pet Carrier w/ 12 Bag Textures before, but it was months back – and this sweet bag is still available, priced at 0L, so if you didn’t pick it up the first time – you can pick it up now!

In the second photo you will see me wearing the same Knit Sweater, this time in pink – which I picked up for 100L at S@bbia to go with the Flare Skirt in Red which is S@bbia’s new group gift.  There are a ton more group gifts to pick up as well, right by the entrance so make sure you check them out too to see if there is anything you’d like.

The adorable Kitty Tights are available in the Barn Owl Marketplace store for 10L, and I have paired them up with Blackburns 19th Century Classic Lace Up Booties which were free on Marketplace!  The Sixboi’s Mustache Bag has been shown previously by Xanthe (here), and is still available as a free gift in the Sixboi’s Marketplace store.

Just a couple more things I want to show you today…  Al Vulo has placed a GORGEOUS skin at The Dressing Room Fusion called Astrea 60′s Chic in a Fairy skintone.  This skin is available for just 70L and includes all kinds of appliers including the slink hand appliers – (Hey Serena and Xiu… check me out – no meat hands!)  All by myself I figured out how to get my hands on, and then the Al Vulo applier, and then a nailpolish applier from Atooly.  Ladies…  If you tried on these mesh Slink hands when they first came out and found them WAY too hard to put on and match up – pick up the update, and try them again – it’s as easy as putting them on and clicking the appliers these days.   If I can figure this out – so can you!  You too will never be called “meat hands” again!

Whew – I’m blogged out – Happy shopping!

Here comes the rain

Poncho: Pure – Chic poncho (5L$)
ScarfMutresse - Sequined scarf (Subscribo gift)
Skirt: !Soul - Nanny mesh skirt
Shoes & Stockings: JD – Tundra kaki (Group gift)
Bag: S@bbia – Ribbon shoulder bag (group gift)
Pose: Starry heaven – Erika (PSR)

Ah the weather has taken a turn for the wet here in England. We didn’t have the typical ‘British summertime’ we normally do but it seems to have caught up with us now that Autumn draws near!

I briefly mentioned that Pure perfection was having a Ricielli-style hunt at their mainstore in my ‘Essence of Pure Horror’ post the other day. Well my poncho is number 2 on the hunt and it’s ideal for the autumn months. It’s the perfect mixture of cosy and styling not to mention it’s only 5L$!

JD has these cute boots and belted stockings out as a free group gift for you all and it’s extremely versatile. You can wear the boots on their own or you can add the belted stockings on or even some cute short socks to go with them. The shoes, stockings and sock colours are all controlled through a HUD and you can wear the stockings with or without the belts! You get real value here and all for the low low price of… well… nothing!

Here comes the rain

Skin: Birdy – Ingrid natural (The Chapter Four)
Hair: Elikatira – Appear
Headband: Auxiliary – Purrfect headband (The Arcade)
Umbrella: Gachaya – Umbrella wood (1L$ Gacha prize!)
Pose: Starry heaven – Come skate away (PSR)

In more great value news, Mutresse has this snuggly mesh scarf for those who give the Subscribo a tippy-tap and it even comes with instructions on how you can mod it yourself. The scarf as it comes is a luxurious purple colour with sequins but I’ve modded the scarf to match my outfit by tinting the fabric and setting the sequins to 100% transparency!

Finally, my messenger bag is one of the group gifts from S@bbia. If you touch the bag, you’ll get a dialogue box with colour change options so you can be sure it’ll match any of your outfits without breaking out the Lindens! S@bbia has many group gifts, luckyboards and guess & win prizes so be sure to check it all out while you’re there!

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

Snapshot_006 We are having a nice little chinook blowing through here this morning, so I thought it would be a good day to grab a friend (The Friendship Bear by Damien Fate @ FATEwear – free gift!) and head out for a walk!

No need for a winter coat today, My new Knit Cardigan will keep me snuggly and warm!  This mesh, beige cardigan is placed out as the latest group gift at S@bbia with no join fee!  While you are there, have a wander over to the reception desk because on top of the desk you will find free tights and socks that come in colour packs so you can match them  up with different outfits.  I thought the brown worked great with this cardigan!  Renee showed these BeeMake Brown Engineer boots last month,  but they are still available and are very cute.  The group is free to join, so if you haven’t picked them up already – head on down there for a pair!

Yesterday I showed you an Al Vulo skin featured at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion and today I am displaying another!  This beautiful skin called Helena / Powder :: December 31 is just one of two skins made by Tuli (YES THEY ARE BACK!) that you can pick up at TDRF for just 70L!  I love how the skin makes these eyes pop!
Snapshot_005

Isn’t this  hat/hair combo adorable?  You can snag this as a free gift at Amacci in a full fatpack of colours, both in the subscribo or inworld group (free to join).  There is also a men’s hairstyle available too! The I <3 Bolloblog Mouth Chain is available at EY:NO for 10L.

Don’t forget!!  The IKON Eternal Mesa Eyes are free to VIPs only until MIDNIGHT SLT on Monday – If you want these eyes, go get em!

Living Dead Girl

deadgirl_001

The thing I love most about Halloween, aside from the large amount of candy consumption is that it gives us all a chance to dress out of the ordinary and get a litte creepy – or a lot, or not depending on your whim.  I threw a few things together and became a Living Dead Girl (/me would sing the Rob Zombie song for you here if I could).

The side pony hairstyle is from Simply Britnee called Aaliyah and the fatpack is currently available for free in store.  My dress is the latest Hal Hina group gift, my argyle socks a freebie from S@bbia and my little boots were 5L from Battle Fairy.  The bloody skin I have on is a free group gift from The 75L Skin Store, made by Scratch Skins & Shapes.

S@bbia has a new group gift for it’s members :)  The group is free to join and there are plenty of previous gifts to pick up as well.  This month’s treat is the orange & black plaid, front pocket dress.  The matching shoes I was fortunate enough to snag in the lucky board while I was there, and the sweet socks were on the reception desk by the gifts wall for free!

My hair is by Simply Britnee and this style, Kandie is just 1L for the whole fatpack as an October special!

More from PouPee Hunt!

Secondlife finally decided to let me take pictures without crashing me so I took advantage of that (because who knows how long that would last :P) and I took more pictures of gifts from the PouPee hunt – not everything, but a few of my favorites in no order.

The first item is from Graph, it’s a Mexican scarf that ties around your waist – with a version for both male and female. I think it looks cute with a simple tank top and jeans but could easily be adding into a more detailed outfit.
graph_001edit

MudHoney has an adorable princess playhouse. It’s probably not for tall people but it’s only temporarily linked so you can also take pieces from it that you like.
mudhoney_001edit

And I found a cute linen romper outfit at Pesca with a cute tube top, belt, and shorts it practically screams “summer”. :P
pesca_001edit

Boom has these cute Lil Bow Peeper pink sunglasses with light pink bows on the sides (that my hair covers) and they also have a Mini Rose Garden Vintage vest which looks sexy by itself and cute paired up with a tank top.
boom_001edit
boom_002edit

Miseria has plaid bandeau tops in three colors; pink, green, and blue!
miseriacollage

I found this really cute white basket bag at Tokidoki (ToKiD) and I love how it goes with everything, while still having a summer feel and we should definitely soak up as much of summer as we can.
ToKiD_001edit

Undefined Lilies has cute finger mustaches with gold (pictured) or silver outlining and a cute animation that reminds me of my friends and I drawing mustaches on our fingers. I think I instantly look like a detective.
undefinedlilies_001edit

Bonne Chance has this gorgeous dress in marine that I loved right when I put it on – it’s sort of like a maxi-dress but not quite, and it reminds me of the ocean.
bonnechanceedit

I I3fashion_001edit

I found a cute mini dress at Pure Style.
purestyle_001edit

D.S has an awesome butterfly typer that makes butterflies appear when you type. I was worried it would be too particle-y but it isn’t bad and I’ve already gotten a few compliments on it.
dalstore_001edit

S@bbia, which I’ve blogged before and was excited to see participating in a hunt, has a two part gift; a cute maxi dress and wedge heels for their prize.
sabbia_001edit

LittleGirl’s gift is a cute fluffy rabbit you wear on your head.
littlegirl_001edit

The second gift found at Somapop is a casual sweater with the number 13 on it which is one of my lucky numbers coincidentally. :P
somapop_001edit

And finally, Bingo has two gifts out for this hunt. A cute pair of orange Stephanie Says pajamas and a unisex Do the Joy shirt.

The hunt goes until August 8th!
Hints & stores can be found on the PouPee Hunt blog along with more pictures of hunt gifts!
