Intermission

Intermission

Stretching my legs…

We are enjoying our night out at the theatre, but we are both glad for intermission. While she is off powdering her nose, I’m sneaking a quick smoke. (Yes, I smoke. But only virtually upon occasion) I was fortunate to find the Evening Tux on the K&A Design cart at The Wash Cart Sale. While the price may be cheap at just 10L, the quality is not. I chose the black tux, but you can also find this tux in white or pinstripe for only 10L each.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em…

My pose today is a FREE Men Only Hunt 10 gift from WetCat. This gift has two poses, each with mirrors and a cigarette to hold. I better fan the smoke and pop a breath mint before she gets back…

True Gentleman

True Gentleman

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished…

“I wish I had a copy of today’s newspaper” she said with a sigh. The “sigh” being the signal for me to ask her if she would like me to run down to the newsstand and grab her a copy. And, of course, I did. She smiled and said, ” You don’t really have to…” letting her words trail off, letting me know what she was saying isn’t really what she was meaning. “I’ll be right back. I proclaimed as I was out the door before she could feign another protest. As I arrived at the newsstand, I happened to look down at my shoe.  I rolled my eyes and proclaimed to no one in particular “Why can’t you pick up after your dog?”  At least the newspaper will come in handy for something…

Stepping out in it with Style…

My dapper look is a FREE gift, NO GROUP JOIN at Lupus Femina. I am not sure how long this FREE deal will last so hurry down and pick up the True Gentleman Suit before the price changes. The suit comes with pants, shirt and jacket, or a shirt and vest option.  My pose today is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift found at Animosity. The Jhamal pose set can be yours if you find the hidden mustache.

A Vision In Blue

Snapshot_004
Hello Fabulous Readers! Have you taken the time to visit the The Decennial Market by Fallen Gods yet? If you make your way around to the different displays you’ll find not only a wide variety of beautiful fantasy inspired designs, but also oodles of FREE GIFTS by different designers in celebration of Fallen God’s 10th year anniversary!

If I have to choose…

Out of the many gifts available at The Decennial Market, I think my top two favourite gifts are the following:

  • Olivia Dress by Aisha:  This stunning draped cobalt blue gown specifically made for the Maitreya Mesh Lara Body is available  as a free gift priced at 0L. 
  • Enchanted Kiss by LOVE: This long and straight, semi pulled back hairstyle is so easy to wear as it falls down the back instead of over the shoulders.  The WHOLE fatpack of colours is available for free at this event – again priced at 0L.

This event runs until the end of the month – Be there or be square!

Introducing…..Ms. Witch

Ms. Witch

I am not a witch, I am the witch,

and to some, I am Ms. Witch!

 

Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness tonight, and hit the trail on the All Hallows Eve Hunt.  As soon as we landed at the Moonlite Cat Creations store, the pupster’s nose began to twitch and we were off!  Quick as a wink, he practically dragged me upstairs, then stood over a low table and began………..drooling all over a latticed apple pie cooling in the October air!  Raising my eyebrows, I admonished my canine pal, “No, Buddy, I said to find the PRIZE, not the PIES!”  After one hopeful glance in my direction, which was quickly followed by a negative shake of my head, he sighed, then once again sniffed around.  Soon enough, he located the hunt object, a small pumpkin, which I purchased for just 1 little Linden dollar, then we teleported home to open the package.

The Creation of Ms. Witch

Nestled inside the prize box was this gorgeous Wiccan gown, black shawl, and witch hat.  Ooohing and awwwing, I slipped into the formal frock, and wrapped the shawl around my shoulders.  My new dress features a strapless bodice, which nips in close to emphasize the waist, then drapes gracefully into a multi-paneled, floor length skirt.  The center section glitters in the light, and the darker accent fabric is adorned with a swirling pattern.  A coordinating witch hat in two sizes adds the finishing touch, and even boasts a dangling spider for a spooky effect, which (I’ll be honest) would kind of freak me out in RL (OK, OK, it would definitely freak me out in RL), but in SL was just the perfect embellishment.  When I donned this headgear, Ms. Witch was officially born.  Although the prize did not include an alpha layer, I was able to use my Maitreya Lara HUD to obtain a lovely fit.

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL

Those Deep Chocolate Eyes…

As I twirled and modeled our discovery in front of Ripley, he simply stared at me with his beautiful eyes, and then whimpered, just a little.  I wonder if the owner of that pie would notice a teensy slice missing.  After all, Pup did work very hard to locate my gift….  What do you think, Fabulous Readers?

Dance of a Lifetime

Photo by Carson Caiben… What can I say? His was better…

Hello there Fabulouses!  Ready for a night of romance, enchantment and freebies?  A little while back, Fab Reader Pepper sent me a notecard inworld to let me know that there is a new Ballroom on the grid  called The Regency Ballroom and they have three gifts placed out for visitors.  Two gifts for women, and one for the men!  It took me a little bit to get to it, but when I did, I was very pleased with what I found.

For The Ladies:

There are two gifts for the ladies!  One you can pick up as a free group gift for joining The Regency Ballroom inworld group, and they other is simply priced at 0L.

  1. Shoenique Designs is offering their Zorenta Red Gown as a free group gift with a free group join.  This beautiful gown is sprinkled in sparkles and is sure to set the tone for an enchanted evening.   Sizes included are Slink, Belleza, Maitreya & Fitmesh.  There are also a couple of flexi prim skirt additions added into the folder, but I preferred it without – your call!
  2. J&W Jewellers has a matching Jewelry Set out as a freebie (priced at 0L).  This set is called The Secret of Jade Collection and includes a necklace, earrings and bracelet featuring rubies and diamonds to go with your new red gown!

An Unexpected Journey

Ripley, What Have You Done?
Hello, Fabulous Readers!  Today, Ripley and I returned to one of our favorite sims – Deciduous.  We traveled down a path we had never explored before, and stumbled across a lovely cove complete with a gentle surf calmly lapping the shore.  An old wooden rowboat sat abandoned on the beach.  Ever curious, the pupster trotted off to investigate.  He hopped aboard, and began sniffing the cushions piled in the stern section of the boat.  Glancing back at me, he gave me that “I’ve found something interesting!” look, so I joined him.  That’s when our curious adventure began.  Unexpectedly, the ancient craft unfurled wings and soared into the sky.   While I stumbled and attempted to keep my balance, Rip happily faced the bow, his nostrils twitching in the wind, and his tail wagging gently with anticipation. “Oh, Rip, what have you gotten us into this time?” I wondered.

At Least I Looked Lovely…

Whatever magical kingdom we were about to visit, I was comforted by the thought that I was dressed for a fairy tale adventure in my free Princess Pink gown from GIULIADESIGN.  This gorgeous flowing frock features a plunging neckline, delicate shoulder straps, and a whimsical criss-crossed tie that accentuates the waistline.  Pale roses adorn the fabric which shimmers in the sunlight.  The gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group also includes a coordinating clutch, which I must have dropped in my moment of panic when our vehicle sprouted wings.  You can add this “fit for a princess” gown to your inventory completely for free.  Simply activate your SLF&O group tag (the group is also free to join), teleport over to the shop, and give the vendor a quick tap.  It will be almost as if you have a built in fairy godmother to equip you for the ball.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic avatars with a “feet” and “no feet” verison
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Here’s a close up of my stunning new dress taken after we safely returned from our visit to the magical kingdom.  As you can probably tell from the picture, I was quite happy to be standing once again on the shore at Deciduous!

Safely Back on Land
Although I sent Ripley on a search and rescue mission to recover my lost bag, he was unable to locate it.  If you travel to the sim, and happen to discover a pink evening clutch, would you please send it my way?  Until my next post, Ripley and I will be keeping ourselves firmly on solid ground (right boy?).  Happy shopping!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Fab Free – Designer Friday – 09/15/2017 – Heaven & Hell

Heaven & Hell Exterior
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here, especially on Friday (okay, almost Saturday)! I’m sure it goes without saying that this is indeed the Fab Free Designer Friday post for the week. Heaven & Hell is this week’s featured designer. Also you’ll be happy to know that Heaven & Hell has clothing for ladies as well as gentlemen. Along with clothing you’ll also find shoes at Heaven & Hell. The style could best be described as fun and flirty, leaning more toward casual clothing, but with some what I would call “date night” looks.

From the moment you enter the Heaven & Hell main shop, it’s obvious there is a lot to see. Just to the right of the circulation desk you’ll see boards mentioning associated groups and events. This is also where you can find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members, just be sure to wear your tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, there’s a joiner above the gift. The Fab Free group is and always will be FREE to join.
Heaven & Hell Offers
Once you’ve picked up your copy of the FREE Fab Free group gift previously announced by Love here, follow the trails on the floor toward the Heaven & Hell group gifts. The Heaven & Hell group is also FREE to join. You’ll find a vendor of FREE female Heaven & Hell group gifts to the left and a vendor of FREE male group gifts by Heaven & Hell to the right. Keep following the paths and you’ll come to a wall full of Lucky Letter boards, half of which require the Heaven & Hell group tag to participate, and half are open to everyone. There are male and female gifts in the Lucky Letter boards also. In the center of the Lucky Letter boards are a couple of Midnight Mania boards which also have a male and a female prize. Finally, you’ll also want to take note of the various “special offer” vendors positioned throughout the store. Happy shopping Fab Free! Enjoy all these awesome FREEbies!

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!
