Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Meet Me at the Disco!

Meet Me at the Disco

Friday Night Fever has hit early for me and I am trying to get my dancing in quick because I have a busy day ahead. Thankfully I have the perfect disco clothes for a quick dance to start my weekend off right!

The arrow points this way —>

To BYRNE! Stop by BYRNE and slap that subscriber board and pick up the free June subscriber gift that is this Arrow Long Shirt. Depending on your windlight setting, it will look black and white, or like in my picture it will have a colorful sheen to it! The texture is intriguing and unique, and I really love it.

Sizes included: Hourglass and Maitreya (and a pair of bonus earrings which I opted not to wear in the picture).

It’s 50L Friday!

Quick! Stop by Wasabi Pills while you can! This gorgeous hairstyle called Nahia in an exclusive color pack is only 50L for today. Since I was disco dancing I opted to go a different shade than my usual and picked out a red and pink style that I thought complimented my outfit. This fun hair is mesh and the package includes a standard size hair, as well as a size to fit “chesty” avatars.

Close Your Eyes And Float

EzmeraldasSummerLovinHunt1LSILENCE!

Can you think of anything more relaxing that silently floating in the clear blue sea?  I suppose there are a few things that could be “up there”, but for me, not much tops it.  The sun warms your skin and the water drowns out all of your worries and cares.  The water pretty much forces you to be at peace, because the second you tense up, it sucks you under like it’s trying to teach you a lesson.

Get your own gold bikini!

I am very happily floating in my new Beach Bikini that I picked up for just 1L at Ezmeralda’s for the Summer Lovin Hunt.  This Bikini comes with system layers and an omega applier as well as the bows with beads which add on at the hips, back and center of the chest.  Until the end of June, you can find the hidden beach ball hunt icon in the store and purchase it for 1L.

This Wild Hair…

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant Cocomuel and is one of the styles available at The Arcade Gacha for just 75L per play.  The cool thing about these unique hairstyles that are awesome for photography is that they come with bento poses!

Happy hunting… and floating!

Deja Vu & Gifts For You

Sissboomsentinus
Hey there Fabulouses! I’m just taking some time to myself after work tonight on my deck doing a little light reading, while it is still nice and sunny.  I am SO glad that the summer months are drawing near so that I can enjoy the outside once again.  Winter months are just awful here leaving in the dark and coming home in the dark!

So what’s my post all about today?

My attire today is put together with some really great group gift finds that I will tell you about below:

Deja Vu!

This hairstyle called Deja was previously released as a group gift in the TRUTH inworld group (300L to join), and was previously blogged by Kathryn [HERE], but I wanted to give it a re-mention because it has been re-released as a Truth group gift in the updated colours and with the stylist HUD!  Even if you have this gift from before when it came out, make sure you pick up the update in notices!

Siss Boom Has Me Tongue Tied

The wrapped top you see me wearing today is called Tongue Tied and is available as a free group gift to members of the Siss Boom inworld group.  It comes in black, gold and silver and is available in several sizes as listed below.  This group is 500L to join, but there is a load of gifts on the VIP wall to grab!

Sizes included:

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

Free Jeans!

One can never have too many pairs of jeans, and these ones in particular are worn and torn in all the rip places… The Mariya cuffed jeans are a free group gift at Sentinus for joining their FREE inworld group.  Sizes included are mesh XXS – L and an alpha layer is provided.

Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon

Daydream Believer

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I continued along the Women Only Hunt 3 path and discovered another free Fabulous Find to share with you.   The coconut at Envious contains the sassy BabyMetal bra, panties (not shown in my picture), and cropped top.  With a rich, red, satiny texture, the knotted over shirt contrasts beautifully with the dark undergarment, which has a sprinkling of silver crosses and skulls, giving it a slightly Goth air.  The panties, bra and top can be worn all together, or on an individual basis, making this hunt gift a versatile addition to your wardrobe.

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique

  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Flowers That Fly

Flowers That Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Now this is the way to start your vacation…….relaxing in a field of butterflies!  Those last few days of school are so hectic; it’s wonderful to savor the first few moments of freedom.  Just like Carson’s Angel, Ripley is not on his summer schedule yet, but our morning walk led me to a lovely patch of daisies full of fluttering butterflies…….pure magic!

All This is Free?

The bi-monthly Ultra Event is celebrating its first year anniversary with lots of freebies for members of the Ultra Society Group (free to join).  Blue boxes at the event contain gifts from a variety of generous designers.  I’m featuring two of them in my post today.  First of all, my lovely tresses, called Froukje, came from Mina.  I love the way the long bangs are tucked behind my ear, with a few wispy strands escaping on my forehead.  In the gift package, there is one shade called “new blond,” which is this gorgeous golden yellow hue.   Other color packs are available for purchase in the Mina store.  I have to admit, I visited there, and scooped up some additional colors because this hair style is just so “me.”

My second giftie from Ultra is the ornate Nadine Gem Bracelet from Modish.  Crafted in dark, gleaming gold with emerald stones, this delicate bracelet coordinated beautifully with my Dorothea dress (more on that in a moment!).  The floral motif was a perfect match for the butterfly theme.  Best of all, it’s completely free at the Ultra Sales Event!

These are just two of the many free gifts up for grabs at Ultra’s first anniversary celebration, which runs until June 15th.  (There are even some for guys).  I’d highly recommend a visit there!

Thanks for the Butterflies

Don’t Fly Away Yet!

The flirty Dorothea mini dress I’m wearing features a satiny teal texture with a cluster of golden butterflies soaring to freedom.  With slender shoulder straps and sexy slits in the skirt, this frock is ideal for the warm summer days to come.  It is a free gift from Sexy Princess for members of the Third Life Group.  There is a 10L join fee for this group, which gives you access to multiple gifts from many designers, so your investment goes a long way.

Butterflies…Flowers that Fly and All But Sing (~Robert Frost)

Although I’ve enjoyed my interlude with the “flying flowers,” it’s time for Ripley and I to tackle some of the many chores around the house that we put off until summer break.  Fun times!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Both of the lovely skins are FREE group gifts for the month of May at Deluxe Body Shop. Each skin comes with a classic system layer skin, and a single omega applier that will work with Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads.

I love the long beachy waves of this hairstyle by Mutiny in Heaven. Everyone can pick up this Mutiny in Heaven hairstyle for FREE exclusively at The Free Dove. The gift comes in the brunette color, and the blonde color shown. Also there are two sizes of each color. If you haven’t visited the hair section of The Free Dove lately, I’d recommend it.

A Night at the Theatre

At the Theatre

Magical…

I enjoy the theatre. Not just the shows but the overall experience. There is something magical that happens when the lights dim and the orchestra begins to play. You are whisked away into a story, and for a couple of hours, forget your own worries…

Showstopper…

The outfit today is a real showstopper. The Alexander Mesh Outfit is a beautiful suit that will most definitely turn heads. This is a FREE group gift from Lara Augusta Carnelian. This one-piece suit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and could be used not only for a night out for a show and dancing, but also for role-play. The Lara AC group is FREE to join. I am also wearing two group gifts from Gabriel. Both the Studded Gloves and the Shearling Shoes are FREE Gifts to group members.

A Rose by any other name….

It is so glad to see that The Rose Theatre is still in existence. This a lovely building with so many intricate details that it feels like a new experience every time I visit. It does feel new, it’s been five years since i last visited.  🙂

Get Wet

Get Wet

Surfin’ Safari…

I’ve really become a fan of going to surfing sims and riding the waves. It’s fun and, believe it or not, relaxing to hear the waves and ride over some of these mondo waves.  Today I’m boarding at San Blas Beach where the waves are high and the current is swift. I stopped by ::Mr.Poet:: and upstairs near the lucky boards was a rack of FREE gifts, no group needed. I picked up the Summer Tank Top that comes in three different prints. I’m also wearing the green Swimsuit I found at NEWCLOVER when they were having their new store celebration. but when I went back to check, it was no longer free. 😦  And what would a surfing post of mine be without a pose from Le Poppycock? (I said I played several rounds on the gacha) Today’s pose is called “Get Wet” from the Surf’s Up series. The pose comes with a texture changing surfboard in several colors. Each play of the gacha is just 50L. I’m going to paddle out to catch another wave.
If you haven’t tried surfing, you should give it a go!
