It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

The First Snow

FabFree: The First Snow

Hello there Fabulouses!  Living in Canada, it is definitely not the first snow of the season for me in real life, but this is the first bit of snow this season that I have seen in Second Life!  The Atheneaum Sim is twinkling beautifully with sparkly fresh snow, and for just a while I forget that I hate winter, because it’s so pretty!

Good thing I had a new parka!

Actually I had two new parkas, because at Scandalize on the massive group gift wall there is the Parka in White AND Midnight that includes the top in two versions and the hooded furry parka.  I decide to wear the white top from the white set and the midnight coat from the midnight set, but you can wear them however you like.  Also included, but not shown on my avatar is a tailed version of the top!  The Scandalize inworld group is 100L to join, but you’re totally missing out if you aren’t in it!  At least go check out the wall of gifts!

Sizes Included:

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

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

Sometimes in the Middle of Nowhere, You Find Yourself

Hello Fabulous Readers!  This afternoon, Ripley and I spent some time wandering through the fields over on the Yorkshire sim.  I just love the color of the sky, the  landscaping, and the general atmosphere there.  If you haven’t been, it’s a lovely place to visit!  My outfit today fit right in with the meadow due to the sprinkling of flowers across my skirt.  I picked it up over at Inventory Trends for just 30 Linden dollars.

A Fortunate Find

When Rip and I arrived at the Inventory Trends shop, I spotted the in store gacha machines over on the right as soon as I entered.  Always on the lookout for a bargain, I wandered over to take a look, and knew I just had to have the Diana outfit.  The machine is stocked with 3 different skirts and tops as separates, and two rare combinations with the skirt and top together in one package.  In my very first try, I was rewarded with a cute duo with a white crop top and white floral skirt.  I could have just as easily blogged that combo, but I really wanted to pick up the black version, so I decided to give it just one more shot (my famous last words with gacha machines…..just one more try….), and to my surprise, an inventory offer popped up on my screen with the words “Rare 1” and I did a little happy dance right then and there!  I quickly teleported home, then donned the strappy black crop top and cheery maxi.  The black shirt hugs your curves in a flattering way, and the long, generously cut skirt features bright blossoms in magenta and lime green.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop and give the machine a try.  If you don’t like the black version I am wearing, there are also a solid red, a solid back and a white skirt with a rose print to try for,  as well as red, pink or yellow crop tops.   For just 30L, it’s a fairly budget-friendly opportunity.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week ahead of you filled with plenty of good luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s like Fabia put out this lovely FREE gift hair just for me! This is ‘Tanya’ and the gift hair with attached hat comes with a HUD for five fun streaked red styles. All redhead, all the time! You can see why I liked it. 😉

Feelin’ a little Mad…

about BoHo style, that is! My gorgeous jacket, vest and shirt is one of the prizes for the “Mad Hatter” gacha from !gO! and at just 75L per play… I played more than a few times. I love that in the !gO! gachas the commons are just as fun and desirable as the Rares. And with twenty seven possible prizes to play for, I bet you’ll find one that makes you “go mad”.

Not all familiars are cats!

FabFree: Not all familiars are cats!

Hello there Fabulouses and Happy Halloween! It would seem that in RL my familiar is a little black dog, but in SL it appears to be this cool Raven.  I hope it has more insight than my dog.

Whatcha wearing Love?

I am in love with the Margarita gacha set that is at the Nerido store, and thought that since it is under our 75L limit to play, I would share the news here!  I am sure it was probably at an event a while back but somehow I missed it, and found it at the mainstore recently.  You know what that means?  No problem TPing in, and no lag ;D.

As you can see from the vendor ad below the pieces come in six different colours and some of the dresses are even common!  The dresses are super sexy with the super high peek on the left side and the lacy trim, but my absolute favourite piece of this set is the gloves with the ribbon and gem.
