Fae Maiden on a Winter’s Eve

Winter Fae 4

Happy late-Monday, Fabulouses!  I couldn’t head off to bed without sharing our latest Fabulous Find with you.  Yesterday, Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the trail on the Fantasy Cream V Hunt.  For only 1L each, you can seek out prizes with a Medieval/Fantasy flair. The event started on November 18th and runs through December 18th, so there is plenty of time to don your Sherlock Holmes cap, and round up some goodies for yourself.  With 34 stops on this hunt, there are plenty of gifts to be discovered.

Winter Fae Maiden

At Beyond Persuasion Designs, Ripley and I scouted out this gorgeous formal number for just one little linden dollar. The bodice of the Winter Eve’s Guardian Fae Anise gown features poinsettia flowers embroidered in gold thread, and the skirt has glimmering white panels alternating with foresty green.  Long, fur trimmed sleeves, which are optional, keep your arms from experiencing chilly breezes.  Although I usually don’t partake in role play in Second Life, I could see this gown coming in very handy for a Medieval/Fantasy sim or for holiday parties.  It is also lovely just for roaming around and looking beautiful!

What’s Included:

  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Rose and holly hair adornment
  • Optional sleeves with separate alpha

Winter Fae 3

I’ve included this close up picture to showcase the holly and rose hair piece that is enclosed with the hunt prize.  I thought it added a festive touch to the outfit, just perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  In this shot, you can also get a good look at my nail polish, which is another 1L find.  Leap of Faith is offering this Slink manicure/pedicure set as a 1L Christmas gift in their Marketplace store.  I brushed on the gradient red to green glitter, but the package also includes 5 other polish options.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  Ripley and I are off to seek out new Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping hunting!

Darkness Dreaming

Darkness Dreaming

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared dream to before.” – Edgar Allan Poe

Exploring Again.

Flickr had me off again… in several directions this time… to two different destinations. One was to a new-to-me store called Brii Underground and the other was to Furillen.

I’ve been to Furillen before but it’s been a while, and it seems to have been rebuilt and changed, and I ended up in a cafe that had a sort of ominous feel to it that I couldn’t resist. It made me think of Edgar Allan Poe, murder mysteries, and dark dreams. I grabbed a cup of coffee off the counter and peered into the darkness and I was glad my new outfit had a pair of thigh high boots, because somehow I was certain that in a place like this cafe at Furillen, the floor was probably none too clean.

Free outfit… boots included.

Remember I mentioned being thankful for boots? Yes, they were included in this stunner of a FREE outfit. It will only cost you a group space as the group is FREE to join. I happened across a picture in the FabFree Flickr Pool (not of this outfit) but of a green coat that I really liked… and I thought I would go pick it up. So I teleported over to Brii Underground. I was too late to get that gift, but this autumn dress ensemble was out instead.

What you get:

  • The dress: sizes XXS – L
  • Mesh Latex Boots: sizes XXS – L
  • All the needed Alpha layers (if you have a system body)
  • Sunglasses
  • Maitreya & Omega appliers for pantyhose and gloves
  • Omega Appliers for Make up (not shown)
  • Optional lighting for materials

I’ll see you on the next stop… wherever we end up. Happy traveling!

Court of Owls

Court of Owls

Oh, that lag…

So far my first ‘Black Friday’ experience in Second Life has been fun and quite hectic. My full body alpha has never gotten so much use before and even then there were times when I couldn’t outrun the lag monster. Only in SL can you shop while being half trapped in a wall (lol). Anyway, these offers listed today are time sensitive but if you have a moment to spare check out the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. Most of these stalls are offering roleplay centric clothing but if you’re not an active role player like me (still on that bucket list) it’s still worth taking a peek to snap up some interesting pieces for your wardrobe. For this event, merchants have 30-35L items for Friday and half price items for Monday, though the vendors are set up through the event so don’t worry if you’re just teleporting in now to get your Friday items. What’s more, there’s a gacha market at the event as well and most of the stalls have a free gift out for visitors.

A girl and her owl

For the picture above I’m wearing the free gift from Pekas Gorean and Urban Designs. The Love and Roses gown come in four standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, XL) with an alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. I really love that full skirt and the rippled folds going down its sides are a very pretty detailing. You can never go wrong with the black and white combination and I adore the chalky flower patterns on the skirt and train of this gown.

My graphics card has been a bit grumpy as of late, as you might have noticed as I haven’t been sim hopping as much as I want to. Taking pictures in a box in one’s backyard can get a little lonely so I decided to add this little guy into the mix for today to keep me company. He’s from the Queen of Peace pose set by Belle Poses and is available for at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event for 35L. There are six elegant poses in the pack and you’ll get six different owls as well so there’s no need to fuss with the position of your feathered friend. He’s so cute that I might just rezz him for fun around the house though I hope the cats don’t try to eat him.

Another day another hair sale

Looks like I haven’t gotten my fill of hair sales after the first day of the Black Friday run. In all honesty, though, I had thought to hang my hat up and then saw that Ayashi was having a 30% off sale for its hairpacks and 50% off on gachas. Seeing that gachas are one of my biggest weaknesses I was off like a shot and picked up the Rumi hair for 50L. That the gacha machine gave me the pink set was just a bonus! The hair sale at Ayashi ends on the 28th.

Skin deep

I was pretty pleased to find that one of my favorite skin stores, WoW Skins was participating the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. I picked up the Ines skin for just 30L and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it contained six skin fatpacks in five tones. There are cleavage/no cleavage options for each skin as well as appliers for Slink, Lolas and Phat Azz included in the package. What’s more, there are two freckles tattoo layers included as well, making me a very happy shopper.

All about that bling

Full disclosure, I’ve never really worn very many accessories in world. I always vow to punch up my outfits a little bit more with bracelets or earrings or necklaces and then turn around again to grab that full body alpha layer because I’m going to an event. The perils of lag and blogging amirite? Looking through the various free gifts that I picked up at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event, however, I found a beautiful jewelry set by Footpaw industries. It includes a tiara, earrings, bracelets, two hair accessories and a necklace. I’m only wearing the necklace in the picture above and thought that it’s glittery diamonds and artistic design made the entire outfit more refined.

And that’s a wrap for today dear readers. Have fun inworld and stay safe!

Last Days of November

Last Days of November

A Special Anniversary.

Glitterati is celebrating its 8th anniversary, and as a gift to loyal group members, Sapphire Teebrook has set out a special 8th Anniversary gown as a group gift. As a group member, I picked up the group gift (there are lots of past group gifts still out) and donned it before setting out to do a little exploring.

The gown was an easy fit, coming in a variety of sizes that will fit just about any body, including:

  • Standard sizes XS – SL
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink – Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

A Jaunt by the Water.

Most of the trees have lost their leaves where I live, and I was enchanted when I stumbled across this little sim called “Yasmina.” I stopped by a stone gazebo where I had a perfect view of small fishing boats and the autumn trees and was able to catch a picture with a tree that happened to match my dress. As a child, I used to fish in boats on family ponds, very similar to the boats you see in this picture, so the little stop at this sim was a pleasant one for me.

Last Days of November 2

A few final touches.

I always appreciate a few final touches, and though this dress doesn’t need much to dress it up, I thought that a few little things added some class to it.

I picked up a FREE tester lipstick off of the Marketplace by alaskametro in a warm brown color called Cashew. Free testers are a great way to add to your make up palate without breaking your budget, and if you like the results, you can always buy the full version (in fact, I recommend you do, as it’s a great way to support the creator). This tester included a system layer for system heads, as well as huds for Lelutka, Loudmouth, Omega, TMP, and Slink.

And bracelets too.

I also nabbed a pair of matching wooden wrist cuffs. One of my favorite jewelry stores is no longer on the grid, but you can still pick up items off Marketplace from ECCO jewelry. I happened to find that ECCO had a promo for these beautiful wooden wrist cuffs on the Marketplace for just 10L and I couldn’t resist. I felt they suited my autumnal mood… and were a nice finishing touch to a beautiful morning.

Happy travels to you all. Be sure to stop by Yasmina. It’s a beautiful sim for visiting or photography!

A Snowy White Sweater and a Black Friday Sale

Fantasy Deer

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have a quick, time-sensitive post for you today.  On a tip from reader Starr Devereaux (thank you so much, Starr!), Ripley and I journeyed over to Wasabi Pills to check out their Black Friday Sale.  When we arrived yesterday, I was overjoyed to notice that this Fifty Linden Fridays Belle mesh hair was still set out in front of the store for only 50L.  I scooped it up, did a little happy dance, then headed inside to purchase a few (OK, OK, more than a few) Basics Packs of hair, which are on sale for 70% off.  I had to reassure Ripley that I still have enough Linden dollars left over to keep him well supplied with Ripley Snacks, and then his tail set to wagging once more.  Unfortunately, the Fifty Linden Friday Hair is no longer available, but you can scoop up the basics pack for Belle, and have more shades than I do, for 70% off.  Wasabi Pill’s Black Friday Sale runs through November 28th.

Snowy Sweater

In my post [HERE], I shared that Mie Beck strives to offer quality mesh items for 50L in her Marketplace shop.  I went back to poke around for more bargains, and I discovered this lovely white knitted sweater dress, just perfect for the season.  With a wide, ribbed, folded-down neck, and decorative cable stitching, this dress is packed with textural detail.  It reminds me of the sweaters that my grandmother used to knit for me when I was a little girl.  In addition, it features long sleeves, and falls to about mid-thigh.  You could definitely wear leggings underneath to keep your legs toasty if you are going to be out on a cold winter’s day.   The sweater is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and is available in other colors in the Beck Marketplace store.

Happiness is Shopping for a Scarf

Siss Boom participates in Sixty Linden Weekend Sales Event, and when Rip and I traveled there to check out this week’s offerings, I noticed the wall filled with 24 group gifts.  I decided to pick up a few.  I had joined Siss Boom’s group quite some time ago, and although it costs 500L to join, the *24* generous group gifts such as this free Ragland scarf in PAISLEY (woot! woot!) really make the fee a worthwhile investment.  Love previously featured this scarf in her post [HERE].  I adored it then, and am still enthralled with its delicate silk texture.  The soft, muted tones of the shawl really complemented my dress.  I draped it around my neck, and was quite pleased with the effect.

After popping home to grab a few of those Ripley Snacks for the road, the pupster and I dashed through the snow over to Snuggles Forest and met Jinx, a friendly deer.  I have to admit, though, Ripley kept a careful eye on those antlers while I gave Jinx a pat.  It’s so good to have a protective pal to keep me safe!  Until next time, wonderful readers…. happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Saturday – 11/26/2016 – Eclectic Stars

Eclectic Stars FFDFHello Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long few days and I sincerely hope you will all forgive this late edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. I blame Thanksgiving! That said, the lateness of this post does not at all reflect the level of Fabulous of this week’s shop Eclectic Stars. The word eclectic sincerely suits this shop. Though small, the store offers a wide range of mostly women’s clothing and furniture; all of which are delightfully geeky!

Eclectic Stars has been part of the Second Life world since 2013. The shop’s creator Jadziyah describes herself as both cheeky and geeky, and I believe her. You’ll find both attributes in her playful creations. The clothing appears to be mostly casual mesh women’s clothing. The clothes are often brightly colored, and there are a lot of hilariously nerdy graphic tees with references to pop culture, gaming, and everything in between. You’ll find the clothing to the left, along with a few tattoos and some gachas. On the right side of the store as you enter is where you’ll find some whimsical furniture and decor. It’s in this section of the Eclectic Stars shop that it becomes unmistakably obvious the creator is a gamer! You’ll see what I mean when you visit Eclectic Stars yourself.
Eclectic Stars FFDFAlong with all the geeky goodness, there are a few opportunities for FREEbies that I spotted while I was exploring the Eclectic Stars shop. There is a current group gift located behind the front desk just as you enter the store. The Eclectic Stars group is FREE to join. You’ll find the group joiner above the group gift vendor. Pictured above, the group gift is a puny tshirt that would make any geek proud! Also don’t forget to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift while you’re there, assuming you haven’t already. Julianna blogged the super cute Fab Free group gift dress in her post here. The Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars is just inside the store and to the right. You can’t miss it!

A Little Whimsy

Whimsy

The Teleport Hub

Yesterday I was cleaning out my inventory… and with it, lots of notecards. I came across one that was a bit old, and wondered if the gift that was listed at More Than Ever was still available. It looked whimsical, flowery, pretty… and with all the cold weather posts… like something that would really cheer me up!

So I took a chance and teleported over to More Than Ever to take a peek and found that the gift was still out. This Hepburn Rose Dress in Plum is a Teleport Hub gift. You join the Teleport Hub for just 10L and you can get gifts from stores all over the grid! Just check the notices to see what’s available. For just 10 tiny linden, it’s well worth the small join fee.

The dress…

I picked up my dress and brought it home to unpack it, and instantly fell in love. It has a glittery purple top, a wide belted waist, and a skirt that is opaque at the hips, but leads down into a glittery flowered swirl of transparent prettiness. It’s whimsical and lovely and made me think of sunshine and spring.

It was also versatile and included a variety of sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Time for a little exploring.

I don’t always take time to share the sims I visit with you, but this dress made me want to visit something fanciful, so I took to the destination guide to try to find something to suit my mood.

I clicked on “Photogenic Spots” and Astralia popped up. A couple of lines from the description say that Astrialia is “an astral surreal landscape for photographers and art lovers.” And that while, “Nothing was in place according to logic and common sense, everything was in order according to the soul.”

I took a look around after the landscape rezzed in, and found myself spending far more time than it took to just take my picture. It’s a sim worth visiting if you find yourself with a little spare time and feeling a little introspective. I’ve gone back today to finish writing this post (I took my picture yesterday), just so I could see the sim as I sit here to tap out my words to you.

It made me think I need to expand my horizons a bit as far as photographs go. I think sometimes we stick with the familiar and don’t explore enough. I’m ready to branch out a bit… I hope you don’t mind, dear FabFree readers.

I want to take you on an adventure… don’t worry. Freebies will be the breadcrumbs that lead the way😉

Through the Woods this Black Friday

Into the woods

Sn@tch up your fishing rods folks, the tides are coming in again!

I was just talking to Kathryn the other day about the fishing prizes at Sn@tch and she commented on what an avid angler I’ve become. It really isn’t hard to get hooked (ha ha) on fishing for prizes as Sn@tch changes out its prize outfits on the regular and they never fail to contain a wide variety of clothing pieces so that you can play around with different looks. Not only that but accessories, makeup and footwear are often thrown into the mix that you can wear with other items in your inventory. The latest Fish 4 This outfit is called Through the Woods and generously contains;

  • Five system snowpants in plum, red, green (pictured), teal and white
  • Snowpants mesh cuffs
  • Two system turtleneck sweaters in grey (pictured) and black
  • Five mesh tops in army (pictured), black, plum, red and teal
  • Mesh Fur Coat
  • Ankle boots
  • Though the Woods makeup tattoo layer in plum (not pictured)

If you have a mesh body or head never fear as you can catch the Omega applier for all the system and tattoo layer parts of the outfit from the prize filled waters. The mesh tops and fur coat come in both come in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with an added fitmesh size for the fur coat and respective alpha layers to help with the fitting. Speaking of alpha layers, one is included for the ankle boots as well and you don’t need to have mesh fit to be able to slide these beauties on. Whew! That’s a ton of detail but I had a lot of fun figuring out the color combinations and there are already a few dresses that I have in mind that would go wonderfully with those boots. Fishing at Sn@tch is completely free but you do need to purchase a basic fishing rod for 100L to get in on the fun. Rods are available on the marketplace or at the Sn@tch store. It’s a great investment as you’ll get a lot of mileage on these outfits so to speak and since it’s Sn@tch, it’s top quality!

Into the woods (bonus)

While I was there…

Alright, alright I’ll admit that fishing is not all I do when I’m at Sn@tch. If you’ve been to the store you can’t really fault me for that as there are a lot of great outfits lining the walls. What’s more that are lucky boards to stalk and riot vendors to keep your eyes on so I had great fun multitasking and packing my wardrobe with great clothes from Sn@tch. The gown pictured above is new on their riot vendors and something that I just had to share. I got it for 55L as the store was pretty packed that day and when I opened the package up, I was floored by the options. First of all, you’ll get this glittery and flowing floor length skirt in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL). Secondly, the strappy and backless top comes in eight different colors and five standard mesh sizes as well (XS-XL). Thirdly, there are also two different alpha layers included in the package to play around with. The subtle dusting of glitter on the skirt and the rhinestones that line the neckline of the top add a glamorous air to the whole outfit. Not only do I intend to wear this for upcoming parties this Chrismas but it’s also given ideas on a new blog segment as well (hmmm). Bring a friend or ten to Sn@tch today and pull those prices down, down, down to get the Gala Sparkling Brocade Gown into your inventory as well.

So you may have noticed…

So you may have noticed that I’m wearing a different hairstyle in each picture. That’s because of Black Friday and the insane number of sales that are going on right now. The offers that I’m about to list down are time sensitive as they end today but there’s nothing like a bit of rushing to get that adrenaline pumping I’d like to say. In the top three pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Doe that is having a 50% off sale for all of its Gachas. Playing a Gacha from this store has always been a staple for me at Gacha events so I was over the moon excited. Doe always has the cutest hairstyles and their colors are always so vibrant.

In the bottom two pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Besom. The store is marking down its hair packs to 75L and I took the opportunity to fill up the gaps in my Besom hair collection. I’ve always been a fan of the wonderful texturing of Besom hairstyles and their styles have an urban flavor to it yet still look so elegant. Hurry down to both stores to take advantage of these great deals maybe we’ll bump into each other as I’m certainly making the trip back.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is going to be having free group join starting from the 28th of November! I can’t say enough how much I love the skins from this merchant and they always have such great perks for their group members. Not only are there regular monthly group gifts, there are also Midnight Mania and Mini Mania boards as well as Lucky Chairs. While browsing through their Black Friday Sale (60% off CasperVend items!) I managed to claim the Libra skin for myself. I’m been eyeing this skin set for so long that I was jumping for joy to see that my letter was up. Luckily I didn’t hit the ‘discard’ button in my excitement so now I’ll be able to tell you all about the Libra skin set! In the package, you’ll receive the Libra classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options in five different tones (Pineapple tone pictured) as well as appliers for Slink hands and feet, Tango boob, and Phat Azz. What I thought was special about this skin package was that a version of this skin in Gothic makeup is included as well. The Gothic skins come in the same five tones as well as cleavage/no cleavage options. You’ll get twenty skins in one pack as a lucky chair prize, how mind-blowing is that? Mark your calenders for the 28th and wait patiently…

You might also want to…

Check out Elephante poses. The store is having a Black Friday and Retirement sale with the entire store excluding collabs and new releases being marked down to 50% off. The older stock is being marked down to 75% off so be sure to look for purple and white tagged items for more discounts. I really love using the poses here as they’re very fluid so come and take advantage of the sales before it ends on the 27th of this month.

And that’s a wrap for today. I’ve gotta dive back into those Black Friday sales. Maybe I can even claw my way to the one at Truth….

Midnight Magpie

Midnight Magpie

Hello Fab Free…we did it!!  Ripley and I had been pursuing her for days, traveling stealthily to the Flawless sim, tapping the Midnight Mania board, and waiting, patiently waiting.  Then, it happened –  we finally caught the elusive Thieving Magpie!

A Prize Worth Waiting For

When Rip and I traveled to Entice to win the Be With You dress featured in my post [HERE], we spotted The Thieving Magpie (another free Midnight Mania prize), but we weren’t successful in our first attempt at victory.  I’m glad we returned to try again, because she’s a real beaut!  A stunning shade of aquamarine, Magpie features three-quarter length sleeves, a fitted, ribbed bodice in a slightly darker hue than the satiny main fabric, and a short, flared skirt.  The Midnight Mania board where you can win this flirty dress happens to be for Entice group members only, but the group is free to join. There are also multiple group-only lucky boards with sweet, free prizes available very close by, so joining the group will yield a number of gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for classic avatars
  • Appliers for:  Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya

Brazilia Shoes

Finishing Touches

I wanted something elegant, yet uncomplicated, to accent my outfit, so I added Dusk Angel Design’s Simplicity Necklace in aquamarine.  The center gemstone echoed the tint of my frock perfectly, while still allowing it to remain center stage.  My long, braided hair, Dakota, is from Wasabi Pills.   I scooped it up quite awhile ago as part of Fifty Linden Fridays, but you can purchase it in the store with a greater variety of colors than I have, for Wasabi Pill’s regular price.  I love the loose braid with wispy tendrils of hair framing either side of my face.  Next, I donned some strappy, Brazilia sandals from KC Couture (these 75L shoes come with a customization HUD with 30 textures!), then followed Ripley to the picturesque sim, A Painter’s Link.  There, he introduced me to some tiny ducklings he had befriended.  I pulled out my phone, and snapped a few pictures as they waddled up to their mini pond in the washtub.  Aren’t they just adorable?!

I hope today’s outfit has inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

A “Secret” Meant to be Shared

So much to be thankful for

Happy Thursday, Fab Free, and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Fabulouses living in the United States who celebrate this holiday!  Today has me thinking about all that I am grateful for – my family and friends in RL, my pets, my SL friends and fellow bloggers, and YOU, wonderful readers.  Your support, comments, likes, and messages truly brighten my days!  Being able to share my adventures with Ripley, and the Fabulous Finds we put together has been a fantastic experience.  I feel so blessed to be part of this supportive, friendly community…so thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the amazing people you are!

Quiet Moment

A Surprising Dress Discovery

After viewing Sheidey’s mesmerizing eyes featured in her post [HERE], Rip and I moseyed over to Dulce Secrets to have a look around.  In addition to gorgeous make up, alluring eyes, and sultry skins, the pupster sniffed out this beautiful Ines dress, which is a free group gift.  It features a strappy, figure hugging, sheath-style frock, with a sweetheart neckline, and a playful, asymmetical hem that reaches below the knees.  The gift also contains a short, dark chocolate colored jacket with three-quarter length sleeves, and an interesting texture variation across the shoulders in the back.  The warm tone of the bolero complements the softly faded blue of the dress beautifully.  Best of all, the Dulce Secrets group is completely free to join!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L and XL for classic avatars
  • Jacket applier for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus

Sugar and Spice

Sugar and Spice and Accessories Nice

As Love stated in her post [HERE] (in which she featured this newest gift from Truth Hawks), with jacket, scarf, and sweater season upon us, we all need a versatile hairstyle that won’t interfere with our outfits.  After reading Love’s post, I looked through the group notices for the Truth VIP group, and picked up the latest gift, Sugar.  This cinnamon hued, sweet bun with wispy tendrils (my spice for the day) was the perfect style for my new outfit.  I slipped on Janice heels from Moda, and the sapphire Sarai jewelry set from Krystal Fine Jewelry, then headed over to the Bella Pace sim for some quiet moments before traveling over to my parent’s house in RL to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my family.

Thank you for reading!  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping.
