Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

Get Dressed

Snapshot_005
Hi again Fabulouses! I feel like I have been in my skivvies for days and needed to get dressed to do some running around inworld.  Apparently it is inappropriate and frowned upon to visit some sims in your undies <shrugs :P> , so I am sneaking in an extra post today to share with you news of a very pretty dress that you can pick up as a free group gift in case you feel like you need to put on some clothes for a while too!

Get Dressed, Literally

Inworld group members of the BlackRose group are spoiled rotten this month of February with the gorgeous Leather Strap Dress as shown on my avatar.  You can pick up this awesome free gift for yourself after joining their free group or activating your BlackRose tag and touching the gift vendor at the main entrance.

Available sizes:

  • XXS-L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

To Tell You The Truth…

Snapshot_001Just calling you all up to say “GURRRLS!  You have got to check out this Alaska Metro Hunt at The Free Dove!” 

You Really Must

If you STILL haven’t checked out the amazing hunt being hosted by The Free Dove – prizes courtesy of Alaskametro even after my last post, I am hoping this one will send you there!  It will take you just a few minutes to wander around and pick up 10 light pink glittery balloon hearts with free prizes inside…  and who knows what else you’ll find.  There is always so much going on there.

In my photo above you’ll see me displaying:

  • #5 – Bette Applier Lingerie
  • #6 – Rouge Hearts Glitter Nail Polish
  • #8 – Black Silk Stay Up Stockings

The Bette Lingerie can be worn all together or panties alone as per the applier hud options and is compatible with the following bodies:

  • System
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Let Your Hair Down… Or Not!

Truth Hawks of Truth wants you to have the choice to let your hair down or not, and he wants you to  have that choice for free!  He has just sent out his new group gift for February and it includes full fatpacks of colours in the Char (up-do) and HoneyAna (side messy braid) as shown in my photos below.  I really like both of these so much, I probably would have purchased them, so I am really glad I had joined that VIP group!  If you are not currently in the group, it will set you back 300L, however based on previous gifts you won’t be feeling financially stung a bit!

TruthFebGGYou got it…  This was day six of the stocking up on free-ish lingerie challenge!

More Lingerie For Valentine’s Day

  1. Tickled Pink
  2. In Mint Condition
  3. Make Him Purr
  4. Not Your Granny’s Panties

Made it to the Weekend

Snapshot_005

Finally Saturday…

What a long, strange week it has been. But I’ve made it through to the other side unscathed (barely.. I may be coming down with a cold). Now it is time to relax and unwind on the deck. Today’s look is one of the gifts on The Love Hunt. You can find the John Blue Pullover &  Dark Blue Jeans at Wilson’s Designs. This true-to-life outfit (not kidding, I am wearing this same outfit for realz) can be yours for just $1L if you find the hunt gift. Time for me to let the stress leave my shoulders and relax….
