Sweet April Showers

April Showers

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  While out on our evening jaunt that I mentioned in my last post, the pupster and I decided to check out the April Showers Hunt.  I am so glad we did because over at C!L Boutique, we discovered a gorgeous gown in a lovely soft teal shade, called “rain.”  Let me tell you, this stunner is well worth the small 1L price!

Ready for Dancing in the Rain

With an empire waist and a full length skirt, this frock will have you ready for formal events.  The bodice features a whimsical spiral design which draws the eyes upward to your bare shoulders.  If the evening is chilly or April showers begin to fall, don’t worry, because the generous designer tucked a cloak and a Victorian style umbrella into the package to shield you from the elements.  I opted not to wear them for my photo, but they add a vintage appeal to the outfit.   Also included (but not worn for my picture) a sheer veil can be worn over the skirt, which is quite pretty.  With classic and mesh body versions, this dollarbie hunt prize is a perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.  The April Showers Hunt runs until April 30th, and offers a myriad of prizes, all for 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!

Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

JellyRolling… in gifts.

Snake and Empire

Yay a gift!

As Tavish Zane herself said… “Finally”! Yay a group gift from JellyRoll! I love this store and I’m always excited when this creator puts out a gift or a promo or a new release. And there are some amazing things to be had in this store. I stopped by right away when I saw the notice that you can pick up her “Empire Records” Group gift – pictured above – with your free group join and snapped it up! It’s a gorgeous sweater and skirt set in several mesh body sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Belleza, Freya, Isis

Free Snakes!

Pru checked out the Bodfy Event not long ago and posted some of the wonderful gifts you can pick up in her post [here] and I wanted to go see it for myself. I fell in love with the little free Snake Toe Rings from Candy Crunchers. (I love anything from Candy Crunchers I think.) and they fit my Maitreya feet just perfectly. So I decided to go shoeless for my picture. I included a vendor advertisement of the gift below so you can see a closeup!

Happy gift “shopping”!

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Beach More, Worry Less

Salt in the Air

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It was one of those days in real life when the day to day stresses seemed to pile up on my shoulders, and all I wanted to do was escape to the shore.  Since I am a long way from the ocean, Ripley and I did the next best thing……we escaped to NorderNey in Second Life.  Of course, I had to wear the newest addition to my summery wardrobe – a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.

Like the Sea – Wild and Free

This beautiful Turquesa Boho Beach Dress from Poeme is perfect for soaking up some sunshine in the salty air.  It features slender spaghetti straps, a comfy casual cut, and a soft pale teal hue.    I really like the intricate white pattern which is swirled across the fabric.  The free gift package also includes a pair of Mandala Turquoise earrings that coordinate perfectly with the outfit.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, this warm weather frock is sure to fit most.  To add Turquesa to your SL closet, simply teleport over to Poeme, activate your Teleport Hub group tag, and tap the vendor.  If you’re not already part of the group, membership costs only 10L, and includes gifts around the grid.  It’s so worth the fee!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Mandala Turquoise Earrings also included

Until my next post, happy shopping!
