The Meadow is Calling

The Meadow is Calling

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness today, and did some sleuthing in the Country Girl Hunt over at Brii Underground.  There are ten prizes up for grabs in this event, and each costs just one little linden dollar. The boxes even include accessories such as hats and footwear.

A Country Girl at Heart

The Keli dress is a charming shade of blue, and includes the ribboned hat, dress, and boots shown in my picture.  I love the white floral pattern sprinkled across the sleeveless frock, and the way it leaves my arms bare to soak up some sun.  The bow tied at the waistline echoes the ribbon on the hat, and provides a visual contrast to the remainder of the dress.  Blue, slouchy, high heeled boots, and thick, white socks round out the look, providing you with a complete ensemble from the crown of your head to the tips of your toes.  The package also contains Keli make up (not shown), an Omega Applier for the make up, and optional lights.  What a great bargain!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Time to Continue the Round Up

Each of the ten hunt gifts is concealed in a small, brown, rearing horse.  If you click the hunt display on the wall at Brii Underground, you will receive a note card with helpful hints for tracking down the prizes.  With 9 more ponies to corral, Ripley and I had better get a move on.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Station Inspection

Station Inspection

The One Percent…

Most of the time is spent cleaning, inspecting, training and drilling for the one percent of the time when all my skills and knowledge must come into action. When I’m “on the job” lives depend on me. People look to me to protect their property from fire damage. Some need me to lead them to safety from a burning structure. Others depend me to pull them from a wrecked vehicle. My favorite job is rescuing cats from trees. But all these jobs are important. I am a firefighter.

Honoring the working class…

In honor of Worker’s Day, Brii Underground has set a new group gift out. The Fireman Style Costume is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join. The costume consists of the fireman’s jacket and pants, each in sizes  XS-XL. And finishing the look, the package also contains boots and a helmet.

Next time you see a firefighter, police officer, or any other civil servant, thank them for what they do!

Bug Me

You Bug Me

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly. 
~Barbara Haines Howett

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! The spring air was so warm and inviting this morning that I felt inspired to visit the Butterfly Conservatory to check out the butterflies. The Butterfly Conservatory is beautiful, as well as educational; not only did I learn about many different species of butterflies, but I also picked up a few tips on what we can do to help save the bees.

To be honest, I learned way more than I ever needed to know about insects… including this guy, who stared me down while his fanny blinked like a lightbulb. We don’t have “lightning bugs” in my neck of the real world, but I do hope the real ones are a bit smaller. Thank goodness he couldn’t get out of his box! 😯

Out of My Cocoon

The butterflies weren’t the only ones spreading their wings this morning. Earlier in the week, Nala Design put out a new gift for Fab Free group members, and I fluttered right over right away to snatch it up. I really like the classic design of this dress, making it perfect not only for a walk in the park but also for the office, shopping, or an evening out with your sweetie.

The Sleeveless Dress in Stone includes the belt and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-XL with alpha
  • FITMESH XS-XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

To grab this gift for yourself, head over to Nala Design and activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag. The group is free to join.

Oh! And I added the Sassy/Classy Bag in black and silver, which is only 25L at Duh! I do love me some handbags! ❤

I feel the need to fly off and plant a virtual butterfly garden now. Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

Window Shopping

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  Don’t mind me, I’m just doing a little window shopping on my tablet while I wait for him to return with 5 zillion coffee pods so he never runs out again.  Don’t tell him, but I packed the last one in my purse and took it to work on Friday.  I meant to pick up more on the way home, but you know me… I’m distracted by shiny freebies allllll the time and Friday night was no exception.

My Shiny Distraction

I came across this gorgeous dress by {AnaMarkova} called Jett Harness/Chain Dress La Rose.  It has a gorgeous all over peony print and is laced down the hips for a bit of a skin flash.  It also comes with a body chain that can choose to wear with the dress… or on it’s own (winks).   I have not worn it with the dress today, but it is indeed included.  If you can believe it, it’s a free group gift for the SLF&O group which is free to join!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara

Captivating Karin

She Has Fire in Her Soul and Grace in Her Heart

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I found a fantastic beach to spend our Saturday on.  With gulls calling over head, the crash of waves on the shore, and the nickers of wild horses grazing in the meadow nearby, it was a tranquil setting.

As the tide rolled in, and the sun sank low on the horizon, I snapped this photo to showcase the free Karin Love Camisk, which is one of the many free gifts generous designers are bestowing on the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented creator at PA Designe put together this sexy, barely there garment, which I’m sure would come in handy for Gorean role play, in addition to a day at the shore.  In a soft shade of mauve, this two piece outfit is sure to flatter any skin tone.  Its bandeau-style top, frayed edges, and daring cut will draw all eyes to your figure.  Ripley insisted I apply the alpha layer of my mesh body strategically so he didn’t have to be on active guard dog duty all day on the beach, and his suggestion worked like a charm.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Standard Large and Small Avatar

It’s time for this surf-lovin’ girl and her bodyguard pup to bundle up in some beach towels, and head on home for the night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fit for a Queen

Queenly_001

Fit for a Queen.

It’s been a while since I stopped by Sweet Lies, so when I made my way over there the other day to see if there was anything new at the main-store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the creator had set out a free group gift. The group is free to join, so the Diona outfit won’t cost you a thing. Considering this gift is fit for a Queen that is quite a deal.

Included in the gift:

  • The dress in all the standard mesh sizes plus standard fitmesh sizes
  • Matching bracelets, armbands, earrings, and necklace

<taps on the window> ….. <moves his face close to the glass, cups his hands around his face and peers inside> ….. < rattles the door handle>…. <taps on the window>…  

It was the best of times….

My day didn’t start out the best…. I crawled out of bed, threw on the closest and most convenient clothes, put a leash on the dog and took her out for a walk…. a normal Saturday morning. But that’s when it all started going down hill….  After Angel gets her morning treat for being a good girl, I start my routine of making coffee. I reached into the cabinet and pulled out the box of pods. My hand reached in and felt around in the nothingness of the empty box.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It was the worst of times…

Seriously, how could I have let this happen. Out of coffee… you my as well just call it a day and start over…. So I walked down to the local coffee house and opened the door TRIED to open the door. LOCKED! They aren’t open yet… so I stand here waiting for my first fix cup of the day. My early morning outfit consists of several group gifts, all of them FREE. I’ll start off with my Gift T-Shirt from Ascend. It should read “meet me at the coffee bar” instead of “Meet me at the hotel”. My  Eros Navy Jeans are a FREE group gift from *It’s Gau*. These jeans are low-rise with a baggy front. My Beanie is a group gift from <Kalback>. With a bit of adjusting, it even fit my messy hair. All these groups are FREE to join.

I see movement inside…. <rattles the door handle>…

Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

High Desert Morning

High Desert Morning

 

Packing it up for the weekend…

I need a little getaway to put my mind at ease and to get a bit of stress relief.  So I hooked up the Airstream and started driving. I found a spot in the High Desert to camp and listen to the beautiful sounds of silence. With just the wind in my face and in my ears, it’s easy to relax here.

Not a Loud Rebel….

Today’s outfit is from Loud Rebel Designs. They are celebrating their new store on the Celebration sim with a FREE group gift to members. The Dennis Outfit is a one piece outfit that combines a shirt, pants and a jacket and includes a texture changing HUD to give you three different looks. The group is FREE to join currently, so grab this gift while you can. [EDIT: The LRD group is no longer free to join. The new join fee is 50L]

Everyone enjoy your weekend…. I’m gonna relax….
