You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…
You Give Me Butterflies 3

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!

Top Notch

SnatchorismHey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🙂  I am popping in real quick to share news with you about another Sn@tch freebie that I thought was a great basic addition to my inventory.

The Royal Rococo Bodysuit is available in the Cheap & Free section at Sn@tch (just inside the entrance doors to the right.), priced at…  you guessed it – 0L!  This bodysuit comes in 8 different colours and includes the mesh sleeves which you can wear, or leave off if you like.  As this is an applier (Slink & Omega compatible)/system layer design, it’s fantastic for layering under jackets or sweaters.  The colours are vibrant, and the texturing, top-notch!

Spring is in the Air

Spring Posies

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….thank goodness!  This has been quite an eventful week in RL for me, and I’m really looking forward to the weekend.  While Ripley and I were out exploring, a group notice from Fabulously Free in SL (my *fav* group ever!) popped on my screen, detailing the newest free group gift from Eloise Baker.  Of course, after one peek at the photo, I high-tailed it over to the Time Portal sim as fast as my fingers could click the link!

Lavender Love

My spring floral dress in a lovely purple hue is the free gift offered to FabFree members at Eloise Baker.  This sweet, strappy feminine frock features a slightly flared and ruffled skirt.  With pastel-colored, contrasting flower-dotted panels, and a curve hugging fit, this dress is sure to flatter any figure.  Its timeless, classic design can be accessorized for vintage role play, yet also is perfect for a casual, modern look.  Soft and graceful, this dress is definitely one of my most favorite Fabulous Finds!

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Belleza, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

To Top it All Off

To add an elegant touch, and shield my eyes from the bright sunshine, I donned a wide-brimmed summer sun hat, which I scooped up for a mere 29L at the MESHit store on the Marketplace.  Since it’s completely customizable, it was easy to edit the color and texture of the hat so that it perfectly coordinated with my dress.  It seems as if they were made for each other!  I love the mysterious aura I get with the angle of the brim covering my eyes.   With its reasonable price, and flexible options for color and textures, this versatile topper is sure to find its way into many blog pictures in the future.

Better Days are Coming…

… namely Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  I hope the rest of your week passes smoothly, and you have plenty of free time to visit boutiques or do whatever you like in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Feel Lucky Today

The Best is Yet to Come 2

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I were at My Style, and picked up the outfit for my last post {HERE}, I couldn’t resist scooping up another free group gift, this lovely Maya top.  It has a fun tie that wraps around your midsection and ends in a cute little bow.  Three quarter length sleeves and a plunging neckline complete the look.  The gift box includes appliers for Freya, Isis, Physique, Hourglass, Lara and Venus mesh bodies.  To add this sexy number to your inventory, swap over to the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group tag (it’s free to join), and tap the gift board.

The Best is Yet to Come 1

Those Little Added Touches

Since my cropped shirt was a free gift, I had some wiggle room left in my budget, and picked up the Miley Collar from Euphorie for just 70 Linden dollars on the Marketplace.  This versatile necklace comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from 10 different hues of leather, and six varieties of metal trim.  I selected black to coordinate with my outfit, but I could have easily added a splash of eye-popping color.

With Saint Patrick’s Day rapidly approaching, I slicked on polish from the Get LUCKY! Mani Pedi Mini set from Bombora.  This 15L Marketplace find helped me get into the holiday spirit.  With the handy HUD, there are 5 options, including several versions with shamrocks, as well as this green and gold tipped finish that I applied today.  Who knows, maybe some of the luck of the Irish will rub off on me.  Actually, this would be a good time for a game of Greedy.  Too bad Ripley doesn’t play because, just like Mary Chapin Carpenter, I Feel Lucky!

Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Twisted Trinity

Snapshot_006
Hey there FabFree! Yep… I’m up to no good again!  You’ll have to please excuse my delinquent behavior today.  I’m just trying tirelessly to get a certain hot copper assigned to my beat.  I’ll risk the arrest, in fact – I’m kind of counting it.

It was perfect timing that Sn@tch had the Twisted Trinity Outfit I am wearing today set out as a free Twisted Hunt prize, just when I was needing a bad girl ensemble!  This set is worth the challenge of the hunt as it is packed full of goodies!

What Twisted Trinity Includes:

  • System Black Latex Suit / Omega Appliers
  • Shades
  • Choker
  • Hair in white & black ( I wore white and was able to retexture it to blonde with the edit feature 😉 )
  • Platform Boots

Good luck and happy hunting!

Butterfly Kisses

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to Hobbiton this week, and I had the magical experience of having a butterfly alight on my outstretched hand as I stood in a garden of wildflowers.  If you haven’t traveled to this lovely sim, it’s well worth the trip!  Modeled after the Tolkien tales, and filled with whimsical references to scenery from the novels, Thunder Dragon Island offers optional, light-hearted role play, a peaceful setting, and spots for couples scattered throughout its landscape.

A Jeans and Tee Kind of Girl

Since I knew we would be exploring the wonders of nature, I opted for a casual spring look for our journey to the land of Bilbo Baggins.  I assembled my outfit from free group gifts available at My Style, and it was perfect for the mild spring weather we encountered.  The strappy, cream colored Kelly top  kept my shoulders free to feel the dappled sunshine.  I particularly enjoyed the loose-fitting satiny texture of the fabric.  My well-worn capris continued the carefree theme.  Complete with rolled cuffs, a buff colored belt, and a realistic, faded texture that echoed the milky hue of my tank, these pants are sure to become a spring wardrobe staple for me.  Both items of clothing are available completely for free as group gifts at the My Style store.  Simply swap over to the Avangardista tag for the Kelly tank and the My Style tag to scoop up the trousers.  If you’re currently not a member of either group, don’t let that stop you, as both groups have 0L join fees!

Included With the Kelly Top:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Included With the RAF Jeans:

  • Fitmesh for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Time for a Game of Fetch

My peaceful encounter with my new butterfly friend did not last long, as it was soon disturbed by a canine pal dropping a branch on my toes (ouch, Ripley!).  As the beautiful winged creature fluttered away, Rip gave a joyful woof and nudged the stick, just in case I hadn’t noticed its crash landing.  Guess I’d better indulge in his favorite past time in order to save my pedicure.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Took a wrong turn

Took a wrong turn

Lost again

Hmm…this club has got a pretty solid farmyard concept going on though those patrons over there are definitely taking the funky chicken way too seriously. Oh, who am I kidding? I should have just asked for directions to the latest social hotspot instead of teleporting about willy nilly. Talk about being all dressed up with nowhere to go. -sighs- Enough with feeling sorry for myself, even if it’s too late to make a splash at some glitzy club with my outfit, I can still talk to you Fab Readers about it so let’s get on with the details! I’ll work from the top down as we have a lot to get through!

More hair accessories

No hair addict worth her salt is going to let a sale slip her by and when I saw that Fabia Hair was having a weekend Spring Sale I quickly er…sprung into action. While I was at the store oohing and ahhing over the fabulous hairstyles I spotted a little sign for this cute hairband displayed along with their group gifts and upon closer inspection saw that it was a donation item set out for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding it to my accessory collection. It’s sweet red and white color scheme and well-made hearts simply screamed at me to get a copy for my own. When I unboxed it, I discovered that you’ll also get a lightbox version of the headband with blinking lights in the hearts. Awesome! The headbands cost only 10L so do consider picking them up if you choose to stop by Fabia Hair’s 50% of Spring Sale. The sale itself is running until the 12th.

Birthday round

The Liaison Collaborative is celebrating it’s Birthday Round this month with the majority of participating merchants putting out a free gift at their stalls. While I was there I picked up the Stickwitu (do you remember the Pussycat Doll’s song of the same name?) dress from the Entice booth. This sleek bustier dress is certainly a saucy little number, isn’t it? I do love the eye-catching black on red color scheme and those symmetrical lines draw the gaze to just the right places. More importantly, the gift folder contains the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • TMP

There is also a nifty alpha layer included which certainly helps with the fitting. The Liaison Collaborative is running until the 30th of this month so hop on over to scoop up your free copy of the Stickwitu dress and more.

Fishnets

With all the talk about Sn@tch from Love {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE} and Pru {HERE}, I decided to take some time to explore the new store build. Unfortunately, I haven’t really had to time to break out the fishing rod or to stalk the Lucky Letters but I did manage to snag this week’s Sn@tch and Grab. It’s always difficult for me to shop for socks, what with needing both appliers for the Slinks and classic clothing layers for the rest of my legs so I’m pretty thankful for stores like Sn@tch that pack everything in one folder. Their Fishnet Collection 2016 is on sale this week for 50L. Not only will you get a wide selection of fishnets (5 tops, 5 bottoms, gloves, stockings, and bodysuit) they’ll come in classic clothing layers as well as easy to use omega applier huds.  I’m wearing the fishnet tights in the picture above with the corresponding layer applied to the Slinks and was pretty happy with the results.

Took a wrong turn

Skin Sale

I’m sure all of us have one store that we visit routinely and for me, one of those is WoW Skins because of the Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Manias. Since they’ve joined the 30L Saturday and 35L Sunday events, however, I’ve been more than happy to stop by this skin store more often. Upon on sale is the Relitha skin (pictured above in the tan tone) All of WoW Skins products carry that signature glossy look and I really liked the eye makeup on Relitha, especially the wing tipped effect of the mascara. The Relitha skin package contains:

  • Two system skins in cleavage/no cleavage options
  • 1 Omega face and body applier
  • Brow shape

There are four other tones (Milk, Bronze, Darktan and Golden) up for sale as well going for 30L each.

Shoes

It’s been a while since I’ve snagged some free shoes for myself and was really happy to discover that Moda was offering the Cybele leather heels as a free gift for the Secondlife Frees and Offers group. These gorgeous heels are only for the Slink feet but you’ll get three different eye-popping animal prints (snake, zebra, leopard)  on the body of the shoe in your gift folder. If you’re not feeling up to walking on the wild side there is a classic all black version of the Cybele heels (shown) included in the prize package as well. The Secondlife Frees and Offers group is free to join, so if you have a slot open hit the group up and pick up your gift. While you’re there, try your luck on the no group needed lucky chairs or hit the midnight mania board there’s no group tag needed for that as well.

And that’s a wrap. Maybe I can still salvage this situation and get these chicks over here to help me coax the local goat into at least wearing a party hat instead of eating it. Till next time guys!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
