Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:
C&CH2 Pic-Firelight Creations

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning I was determined to shake it off Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! 😉

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Très Joli dress from The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Très Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 1/27/2017 – House of Ruby

House of Ruby
Hello Fab Free! It’s Friday and I’m ready to sing… okay maybe not sing, no one wants to hear me sing, but I am ready for this weeks addition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I am happy to feature House of Ruby. House of Ruby is the place to go for sexy yet casual under things. The shop specializes in mostly applier underwear and lingerie type clothing for both men and women. At the House of Ruby landing point you’ll be greeted by the above pictured wall with all the important store information, and possibly the store kitty! You’ll notice right away that though the shop is small, it’s well set up and easy to navigate. Directly to the right from the House of Ruby information wall you’ll see several gifts.
HoR Gifts
Some of the gifts in this section appear to be former hunt items. There’s also a men’s and a women’s group gift. You’ll also want to make sure to pick up the box on the floor. It’s packed full of all the House of Ruby group gifts from 2016! The House of Ruby group is FREE to join. Then of course there’s the Fab Free exclusive gift which Astrid had previously shown in her blog post here. Don’t forget you’ll need to switch over to your Fab Free group tag for that gift. Finally, don’t forget to join the subscriber while you’re there. There’s a FREE subscriber gift given out to new subscribers. Remember, House of Ruby has items for both men and women, so don’t miss out!


Never Runaway From A Good Lovesong

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulous Readers! Today I bring you two marvelous bits of news I hope you’ll be happy to hear about.

The First Bit – Who Doesn’t Love A Good Lovesong?

Lamb inworld group members are being spoiled with a new group gift.  With your inworld group tag activated above your head, you can head to the mainstore and pick up the new Lovesong hairstyle for free and in a complete fatpack of colours!  Lovesong is a long, flowy style, bobby pinned at the side to keep the hair out of your eyes.  There is also a previously given out group gift still on the shelf as well [Blogged Here].  This group is 100L to join, but with two fatpacks of really great hair available, it’s a steal!

The Second Bit – Sn@tch News

Sn@tch has some big changes going on at their shop this month as they are moving to a new building.  They will be retiring some of the older items and are hosting a huge clearance sale until the end of the month.  If you have a peek around the store, you’ll find all kinds of discounts, some ridiculously low!  There are three new Riot Vendor items too, and my sexy Runaway Plaid Lingerie as shown in my photo is one of them.

If you are unfamiliar with how a Riot Vender works, basically the more people standing around the vendor, the lower the price goes!  So TP in your friends, call the Sn@tch group members down and watch the numbers drop – sometimes below 50L even!

The Runaway Plaid Lingerie comes in a fatpack of eight colours and is compatible with the system body and includes Omega Appliers.

Angel of the Morning

BEEP…BEEP…BEEP

 6 A.M…. Why does the alarm have to go off sooooo early? …. snooze button …  must. find. the. snooze button… ahhhh… five more minutes… zzzzzz … dog, quit licking me… just.quit.licking.me …BEEP…BEEP…BEEP…
AH CRAP!

Hypnose GG

Anything but a morning routine…

Don’t you just hate those mornings when you just can’t seem to pull yourself out of bed?  The dog all snuggled up beside you only happens when the pull of the pillows is stronger than the desire to get the day started. Instead of angering the bear sleeping next to me, I crawled out of bed and into the shower, toweled off, got dressed, started my morning coffee, took Angel out for a walk (the cute little Sish Tzu that Love found for me so I wouldn’t kidnap babysit any more of her dogs) and am now finishing my morning cup of joe before it’s time to head out to work.  Today’s outfit is a FREE group gift from Hipnose- Spazio. The NVB 40 Gift contains a shirt/jacket combo and pants. It also includes a pair of spiffy mesh shoes and comes with a cord necklace as a nice accessory. The Hypnose Group is FREE to join, so grab up those goodies.

I hand Angel her treat as I head out the door for another day’s work, still wishing I was back in bed. Is it Saturday, yet?

A Little Goth1c0 Never Hurt Anyone

Goth1c0
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Once again it seems the week has gotten away from me. I am sensing a recurring theme in my world as of late, I never seem to know where all my time goes! I suppose that means I’m having fun, you know the saying: time flies when you’re having fun. Whatever the case, one thing I can say for sure, I do think this look is tons of fun and just the right side of sinister.

Goth1c0 Group Gift 

The mesh dress Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift from Goth1c0. Though it doesn’t appear this is a new gift (the packaging says July), I still like it a lot. I enjoy the way the dress shows off curves without showing too much. The Goth1c0 group is FREE to join, so the dress is a steal of a deal. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a color change hud so that you can change the color of the material in the sexy corseted side panels. There are 6 total color options, 2 of which are solid colors while the rest are patterned.

RedMint
RedMint Group Gift

You can always count on RedMint to have hairstyles that suit more alternative looks. This silver-blue toned messy up do is the most recent group gift at RedMint. The FREE gift is in this single color only.  The RedMint group is FREE to join, and there are several past group gifts available. To get this gift, you’ll want to make sure you’re in the hair studio section, if not just use the signage on the wall at the landing point to teleport to the hair studio.

Slack Girl Marketplace Special 

Alright, so I have to say that my closeup photo does not do this eye shadow from SlackGirl justice. There are little jewels under the lower lid that give this shadow a unique look. You’ll find a full eye shadow set by SlackGirl on the Marketplace for just 10 linden. With the set you’ll receive classic system layers for each of the 8 color options. You’ll also get an applier hud for Catwa, Akeruka, and Omega compatible heads. If you’re even half as into makeup as I am, this is a must have!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Leather and Lace

Snapshot_003

Hey Fab Folks!  While I was at Nala Designs the other day picking up the Avangardista group gift I showed you [HERE], I noticed that upstairs in the outlet area there are 2 group lucky boards.  Both prizes are really nice, however this one in particular that I am wearing today really caught my eye!  The group is 100L to join, but once you join, you can take advantage of group gifts, lucky boards and midnight mania offers that are group exclusives.

Getting Lucky At Nala Designs

If your lucky letter comes up on the board, you’ll be gifted the Rachel Red Outfit that includes the lace textured leather jacket and grey leggings shown on my avatar.  The jacket comes in classic and fitted mesh in XS – XL, and the pants come in standard mesh sizes XXS-L, Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP.  Alpha layers are included for both, should you require them.

Aww, Thanks Izzy!

I also wanted to take a minute to thank Izzy C. for sending me this adorable Sheltie that I have decided to call Daisy!  As instructed, as a precaution… I am keeping it far away from Carson so that it is not abducted as my little Dalmation pup was back in December [HERE] when his grinchy side snuck out and he tried to steal Christmas.  He does seem in brighter spirits this year, however I still have my eye on him.  If you’d like one of your own JIAN Sheltie Companions, you can try your luck for one at this round of The Epiphany for just 50L per play.
