Pastel Ice Cream

Pastel Ice Cream

Another magical element of summer that I enjoy all too much is the plethora of frozen treats you can get!  It seems to me that ice cream is no longer just a thing you have on its own, but a crazy amalgam of as many sweet things as one can stuff into a small container.  I’m not complaining about the craziness of today’s ice cream, on the contrary…I say bring it on and why not dress just as sweet to match?

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards for the month of July over at Safira!  5 cute outfits (plus the 5 that went up last month) that are all sorts of adorable!  I got this two piece look while hanging out there, and you must admit that it’s really sweet.  I like a good pleated skirt, and if it’s turquoise I surely can’t complain!  To get yours, just join the Safira group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are loads and loads of great gifts to pick up while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Magical Beret

I told you all yesterday about the free gifts over at The Crystal Heart Academy, but I had one more thing I really wanted to show you that I picked up while I was there weaving my way through the magic wands and sparkles.  This hat and hair by Ayashi is simply divine, don’t you think? It just makes me super happy.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the event, and you can wear it with or without the hat.  It comes in several hair colours as well as a super useful HUD to change the hat colour.  Cuteness overload!

Geez, this ice cream is so tasty!

Ahoy There!

Ahoy There

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Fourth of July to our readers in the USA!  Ripley and I found a lovely spot for a picnic on the Summer Edge sim…. a place far away from those noisy fireworks that freak him out in RL.  All those booms, whistles and crackling sounds make him so nervous, so I will be keeping him close until the evening’s celebrations are through tonight.  I saw an article online about an animal shelter where people spend the evening with lawn chairs and treats, providing comfort to the homeless canines on the 4th of July, and I thought that was such a wonderful idea!  If Ripley wasn’t so upset by the noises in real life, I’d love to help out too.

No Stars, but I Did Find Stripes

Earlier today, the pupster and I spent some time over at the Ghee store seeking out red anchors concealed throughout the sim as part of the Ahoy There Ghee Nautical Hunt.  Each item costs 10 Linden dollars, and we are showing you two of the 40 + items you can scoop up at the hunt.  First, I’d like to draw your attention to my navy colored sailor shorts.  They feature a high-waisted, curve hugging fit, and two columns of golden buttons.  Three vertical seams add a realistic touch to the fabric.  With a coordinating combination of navy and white stripes, the nautical stripe top completes my outfit.  This little number ties on the sides and boasts spaghetti thin shoulder straps.  It provides coverage in all the right places but also leaves plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun.  If navy blue isn’t your color, there is also a lighter blue version of the top and shorts as well as red concealed separately as part of the hunt.  I really liked the darker blue hues in these two hunt prizes, so for a total of just 20 Linden dollars, I was quite pleased with my nautical look.  The hunt runs through July 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Summer State of Mind

A Summer State of Mind

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am feeling a tropical vibe tonight, and my clothing today fits right in with that theme.  Best of all, I picked it up for free!

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun

La Tuta, the latest gift from Tiar for members of Fabulously Free in SL features a botanical print in varying shades of green and is accented with pale pink trim.  With its off-the-shoulder styling and short skirt, this romper is ideal for warm summer days and soaking in the sunshine.  I really like how La Tuta’s waistline is adorned with a green bow that echoes the hues of the foliage.  To pick up a copy for yourself, activate your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor in the Tiar store.  It won’t cost you a single Linden dollar!  Tiar is celebrating 11 years in Second Life with a 50% off sale, so while you’re there, you might find some other budget friendly Fabulous Finds, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Here’s wishing you a happy Sunday and a fantastic end to your weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Floral

Floral

Hello again, FabFree! I guess I’m still feeling my Elven roots today. Wandering through the meadows and forests… singing… well, maybe a little. Probably a good thing I didn’t have the mic turned on. 😉 In my defense, it’s hard not to feel all Mother-Naturey with the two new finds at Prism.

Peonies

My lovely crown of peonies is the current Group Gift for Prism Designs. And like all Prism products in my experience… it’s gorgeous! Every angle is so well built. You can change the size with a simple touch for a custom fit. Plus, there’s a HUD to change the flowers to one of four colors.

Floral Spring

My sweet new dress is also from Prism. But this one you’ll This is certainly one of the premire Hunts on Second Life so the designers really bring out their best. And Jezzixa Cazalet for Prism does not disappoint with this dress. You’ll get a ton of sizes and a HUD to change the delicate color and pattern to one of four choices.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Venus, Isis, Freya
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

He’s Not Such a Bad Bunny!

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  It was time for another escape to the shore for Ripley and I today.  Lucky for us, Baja Tides was just a mouse click away.  If only I could escape so easily to the ocean in RL!  I’m excited to tell you all about my beachy outfit, which I picked up for just 1 Linden dollar as a hunt prize.

This Girl’s Ready to be a Beach Bunny!

The pupster and I hit the trail of the Evil Bunny Hunt 9, which is running until April 30th.  Over at Indigenous, we came across the “Nice Egg” the Evil Bunny had hidden.  I don’t know why they call him evil – after all, he provided a hint for us, which helped us out tremendously!  I am guessing it’s because he has also left some devilishly decorated “Evil Eggs” scattered about as well.  Still, I think he’s a pretty good guy!  “Beware the lillies,” he said in his hint.  Following his advice, it no time at all, I spotted the white egg sporting angel wings and a halo, paid the single Linden dollar fee, and scampered back home to open up my prize.  Nestled inside the folder was the Easter Flowers outfit, which includes the cropped top and mini skirt I’m wearing in the photo, as well as a floppy brimmed hat in a coordinating print.  With the shore breeze, I opted not to add the hat to my ensemble, but it’s there for you if you’d like to add it to your look.  I must say, it’s pretty darn cute!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Altamura Sofia
  • Ebody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I hope your work week is off to a smooth start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Soft Spring Days

Soft Spring Days

Spring has finally made it’s way here to Texas. The breezes have that wonderful softness that is late Spring with just a hint of the warmth Summer will bring. It’s a wonderful time to throw open the windows and go for walks in the woods.

Flowers for me?

While I was wandering the Shiny Shabby event, I came across this lovely sweater and skirt set from Sorumin in the ‘Fleur’ Gacha. I thought… “Hey, it’s only 50L per play… why not give it a shot.” And bingo! I pulled the Rare! I love the soft pastels and the overlong sleeves. And those tulips! The set comes with a HUD to change the colors of everything! The sweater has six colors, the skirt has five colors and even the tulips can be changed to suit your mood. (Four colors for that one.)

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Even more flowers!

Thrilled with my luck, I kept wandering the event and saw these flower head pieces in the “Tulips and Cherries” from *Lode* and thought “Wouldn’t it be funny if I could grab that one with the tulips on it…” You guessed it, I pulled it! And again… it’s only 50L per play.

This round of the Shiny Shabby Event runs until April 15th so get out there and try your luck!
