A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

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

The Belle Epoque Birthday Hunt

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses! I have returned from vacation and have almost caught up on my stack of the mundane “behind the scenes Fab stuff”, and I had totally planned on getting it all finished before I started blogging the fun stuff again, but I just couldn’t help myself!

I want all the cupcakes!

I was just too excited when I saw an ad for the Belle Epoque Birthday Hunt where you can search for little cupcakes in and around the Belle Epoque Store and score some really nice items for just 10L each.  All of the cupcakes are numbered, so you can just check out the texture below to decide which ones you want to pick up before you spend the 10L on the item.   I am wearing #1 which is a really cute brown and white dotty romper in one fitmesh size along with #10 (the unique wicker plant bag).  I am not sure how long this hunt will last, so act quickly if you are interested!

Birthday Hunt !

I have picked up many of these gifts and look forward to trying them all on and showing them off!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANIRE!  Thanks for the gifts 🙂

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Far Far Away

Far Far Away_001

Addicted

It’s safe to say I’m addicted… to the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I visited Stix this time and came away with a beautiful fantasy skin called Yuki Addicted for just 5L. It includes system layers plus…

Appliers for:

  • Omega for Catwa & Body
  • Omega for LAQ/Logo & Body
  • Omega for LeLutka & Body
  • Makeup Only applier

You might remember that Pru showcased the beautiful Yuki as Syx skin here which is the current group gift at Stix. This Yuki Addicted addition of the skin is another fantasy version which is just as beautiful and is in pink shades with pink eyebrows, pink cheeks and pink lipstick. I couldn’t resist it! I think it would be fun for everyday, and it is definitely perfect for roleplay!

Far Far Away

I went fishing… far far away. Okay. So I just went to Sn@tch. There is about a week left to pick up the current fishing prize before it is changed out next Wednesday. Currently is is a lovely little outfit called “Holiday in the Sun”.

You get the full kit and caboodle with jewelry, make up, shoes, tops, omega applier pants and so on. The mesh shirts come in the following colors: Pink (shown), Beige, Blue, Peach, Seafoam, White, and Violet. You’ll also get a texture change hud for the pants and the pants come in: Pink (shown), white, lavender, sky, seafoam, and peach.

Sizes available for the shirt:

  • Standard sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

A Vixen in Crimson

Lady in Red
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I wrapped our Sunday up by taking a stroll on the Anneliese sim.  It was a relaxing way to close out the break from the work week.

Lady in Red

My adorable red dress with a slightly flared hemline is a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Snowpaws. With a vibrant red hue and a coordinating red silk choker, the Soma Ruffle Dress had me feeling bright and cheerful.   From its plunging neckline, to its carefree asymmetrical skirt, this silk frock is perfect for a date night, or just feeling extra special.  It comes in five sizes – XXS, XS, S, M, and L, and the box contains an alpha layer for classic avatars.  The small size was just right for my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  Best of all, you can pick up this crimson beauty completely for free! Simply activate your Fab Free Group tag and teleport over to Snowpaws.  With one quick click, you can add Soma to your inventory.

Budget Friendly Bento Tresses

I discovered my sleek, center-parted Ellie hair style on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden dollar at the Vallani shop.  It comes complete with a tint and style HUD, which contains 9 style options and 30 color variations, which offers a great deal of flexibility.  The hair has fitted and Bento animated versions.   The Bento style is in the experimental stage, but it comes with a quick lock option, so you can stop the movement of your tresses quite easily.  I ended up using this handy HUD to keep my hair still.  I really like the slight wave at the ends of the style.  For just one little Linden Dollar, you can add a lovely, versatile new ‘do to your collection.

Tomorrow, it’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guarding the house for the pupster.  Oh, how I long for our carefree summer days to return!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bigfoot by Day and Night!

Bigfoot shirt

I’m a big fan of fun graphic t-shirts. I’m also one of those Bigfoot skeptics. I mean how is Bigfoot really real? Everyone is always looking for Bigfoot… but how often do they ask the *real* question? Hmm? Hmm?

So when I went to JellyRoll, a fun and quirky little shop I might add, I fell in love with their current group gift!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

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

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Follow Your Butterflies

Follow Your Butterflies

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  After a long first week back to work in RL, it sure was nice to have a quiet moment with the pupster on the front porch.  When a butterfly alighted on my outstretched hand, that moment became pure magic, but I should have expected that since I was standing in Luane’s World – a romantic, magical sim.

The Dress

My frock today is the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  The Strapless Spring Dress features a soft lavender bodice, and a white skirt adorned with an elegant purple and lavender butterfly.  It was perfect for a late summer morning exploring with Ripley.  I love the delicate double strap detail at the neckline, which is echoed on the deeply plunging back.  With mesh and fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as popular mesh body types, this outfit will fit almost any avatar.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join, so you can scoop up this little number for a song!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The Necklace

My Mesh Whimsical Butterfly Necklace from ~{Sasha Lee}~ is part of a set that I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It features a long, silver chain, and a silver butterfly with a diamond studded body, and opalescent jewels embedded in its wings.  Matching earrings complete the set, but I chose not to wear them for my photo.  It seemed like it was almost made to go with my lovely new dress!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Ride in the Country

Decked out country_001

I’ve been exploring again, and this time my dear friend took me horseback riding at a sim called Glanduin. You arrive and there are several areas on the sim where you can click a horse rezzer so that you can rezz a horse to ride to sight-see around the country side of the sim and its beautiful views!

I tried to put together a bit of a country girl look for the occasion, and with the help of a few lucky finds, I was able to do just that!

Three Tees!

Graffitiwear always puts out quality gifts each month, and August was no exception. They sent out three free fitmesh Tees with Maitreya autohide included as their August 2017 subscriber gift. (If you’re not a current subscriber just go to the store and slap that subsciber to get your gift.) For my picture, I donned the Tribal Tee, but I included a copy of the vendor add at the end of my blog post, so you could also see the Orange Tee and the Floral Tee as well. These fit like a charm and were so pretty!

Four skirts!

One Creations has out a generous free gift exclusively for FabFree group members. It’s a four pack of skirts in different colors. Like the Graffitiwear shirts, these skirts come in one fitmesh size, but I didn’t have any trouble getting them to fit as pretty as a picture. The four colors you get are brown (shown), red, blue, and black.

And shoes!

The Pirate Hunt also started today, so I stopped by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes to see if there happened to be a pair of shoes I could work into my look. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoes for the hunt matched my outfit like a charm! For just 2L and a bit of hunting time, I picked up the Fara Fantasy flats. They come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreaya, and Classic feet, and could match a variety of outfits with their muted blue and brown color scheme.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

A Cheeky Find

Cheeky Rose

EvelineInTheBox sent out a special new gift to celebrate 1,000 members… and if you hurry you can pick up this free Nora dress in pink. The group is free to join. The detailing on this dress is fantastic. It has a pretty cut and neckline with a floral ribbon edging around the hem and sleeves. I realized belatedly that I should have given you a picture of the back of the dress, as the back is a criss-cross of ribbons for a beautiful, feminine look, with just a touch of butt-cleavage (for the daring ones!).

This dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Cheeky Rose 2

A cheeky find.

I’m still enjoying the Aloha Fair, though I’m not sure how much longer you have to pick up all the great gifts. I found this pretty necklace by Cheeky called Boho Rose as a 1L gift and it matched my dress just perfectly. I picked it up and found it fit over most of my mesh dresses and has a pretty rose metallic finish. It’s a steal for just 1L!

Be sure to visit the Aloha Fair before it is over… the variety of beautiful dollarbie gifts is just amazing!
