Have Love Will Travel

Snapshot_001
Hitting The Road

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am unsure if it is the warm spring weather or this new outfit I just picked up for free at The Designer Circle Anniversary round, but I was feeling the need to get out and stretch my legs.  Now… Where to go?  I stopped in at Kathryn’s to see if she and Ripley would like to join me, but it looks like Ripley has already led her off on another adventure of their own!  I think I’ll just close my eyes and point to a spot on the map.

It’s Worth The Trip

If you like the outfit I am in today, you should know that the Casey Outfit by Finale Couture – that includes the jacket, pants and Slink add-on shoes is a free gift (priced at 0L!) at this Anniversary Round of The Designer Circle.  In fact… many of the participating designers have freebies or dollarbies you can pick up, just set out on the ground of their displays.

Casey Outfit Sizes & Compatibility:

  • Shoes: Slink
  • Jacket – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer + Fitmesh
  • Pants – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer

Promise of Spring

Promise of Spring

 

Out like a lamb…

As we head into the last week of March, the weather in my part of the world is beginning to show signs that spring has finally arrived. We decided to take a walk (without the dogs in tow, they had their walk earlier today) to look at some of our newest additions to our ever growing menagerie of animals. While it is still cool outside, the sun is warm enough for us to shed our jackets and toss them over our shoulders…

The newest group gift at ::K:: is the Justin Accent Jean Jacket for both him and her. Either sex can choose to wear either the pink or the grayish blue jacket as a nice accessory piece. I am also wearing a gift from The Menstuff Lounge. Black Label Menswear has made a gift of the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers.  The gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are free but to join the group it will cost a one time fee of $50L.

Oh look, the lambs are kissing…. 🙂

With a Little Help From My Friends

Wild and Free

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I met some new friends today at The Mill and paused to capture a snapshot with them.  Mr. Ears was shy and didn’t want to look at the camera, but his pal Blackie happily obliged.  Isn’t Chippers just the cutest little chipmunk ever?  He is part of the pose pack “Snuggly” from Nani that I discovered on the Marketplace for only 50L.

My outfit today is a free group gift from Machka Design, and includes the darling floral shorts and knit cropped top shown in the picture, plus cowboy boots and a shirt that ties around your waist, which I opted not to wear today.  The color of the top reminded me of pale morning sunshine.  I like its high collar and sleeveless design.  Echoing the flowers scattered in the field at The Mill, the pretty botanical pattern on the shorts was perfect for a casual day spent exploring nature.  The Machka Design group is completely free to join.  To add the Santa Rosa outfit to your inventory, just switch over to the group tag, teleport to the shop, walk inside, and tap the box on the floor just inside the doorway.

What’s Included in the Gift Package:

  • Mesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for shorts
  • Knit tank top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Alpha layer for cowboy boots
  • Shirt tied around waist in XS, S, M, L, XL

Precious Things

Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

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!

Grab it while it’s free…

Dropping a quick post out for you all with some information you may enjoy.  The Resun group is currently FREE to join. I remember stopping by there a few times after seeing  items on the feeds (yes, I do look at the feeds from time to time) but never picking anything up because the group fee was too pricey for my wallet. But have no fear, right now you can join for FREE and pick up the latest group gift, the Martin Slim Shirt. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL and also comes with a texture change HUD to get just the right color. Things like this only happen once in a blue moon…

Getting ready

Getting ready

The need to unwind

It’s been a pretty busy couple of days for me out in the real world (the kind that leaves you feeling as if you’ve been trampled on by a small herd of elephants). While all of this stampeding activity is far from over I thought I’d take advantage of a lucky little lull to sneak onto SL for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Seeing how it’s St Patrick’s Day, a green outfit was in order and happily enough Baby Monkey’s new free group gift, Else, was just the dress for this occasion. This quarter sleeved, collared shirt dress has a chic retro vibe to it that’s accentuated by the pretty bowed belt at its waist. The cherry blossom print of the Else dress not only adds a dash of sweetness to the outfit but a lovely contrasting white as well. What I adore most about this new group gift, however, is its versatility. You’re able to wear the blouse and skirt components as one single outfit or wear them individually to mix and match with other pieces of clothing in your inventory. The gift package includes a hud which lets you switch up between two different colors (warm green and bright blue) for the blouse, skirt, and belt, opening up more combinations for you to play around with. Sizes include:

Blouse:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Skirt:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Dress:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya

The Baby Monkey Group costs 20L to join and to add the Else dress to your collection you’ll just have to pay the vendor 1L before getting an instant refund. Use that dollar to snap up the other current group gifts at the store as well (past group gifts cost 10L each).

Getting ready

Accessorize

Speaking of eye-catching colors, the Aishas set from Legendarie certainly fits the bill very well. These lovely fuschia heels and matching clutch bag are a free gift for everyone, meaning that you don’t have to use up group slots or tap any sub-o machines to get your hands on them. There was no way I could pass up on these flirty strappy slingbacks (only made for Slink high feet, however) and the fact that there’s a matching clutch thrown into the mix just sweetens up the pot. There are two different versions of the clutch bag included in the gift package, one worn on your avatar’s hand and the other worn higher. You’re able to move, rotate and stretch the clutch and permissions are set to copy so do make backups before editing. I’m not sure how long this pretty gift will be out for so get it ASAP.  Legendarie is a generous store that set out free gifts fairly regularly so I would recommend putting it on your ‘must watch’ list. Though there’s a 99L group join fee there are tons of past gifts to pick up at the store.

Hairstyles

One of these days I’ll stop writing about the Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round but that day clearly isn’t today. There are so many great free gifts by awesome designers and I was really excited to discover that there’s not one but two hairstyles that you can snap up at the event at no cost at all. The Ullrika hairstyle from EMO-tions is a great messy updo that allows you to just toe the line when looking for something elegant by not too formal. The pretty braided details of the Ullrika hairstyle are a very nice touch as well. In the gift package, you’ll receive

  • Two versions of the Ullrika hairstyle, one for larger chests
  • Huds for the Black/White, Blondes, Brunettes, Reds and Pastels palette colors. Each hud contains eight tones and a resize script
  • Fatpack of tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Hairbase appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and mesh heads using the Omega system.
  • Hair alpha layer

The Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round is running until the end of the month so go and snap up your gifts if you haven’t already.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got my keys right here and I’m pretty sure I haven’t left the stove on. Time to hit the grid and take a peek at those Fifty Linden Friday offers. Happy St Patrick’s Day! I’ll catch you guys later!
