One Enchanted Evening

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!

For The Guys:

As Carson is displaying, the guys can pick up the Shoenique Designs Millennium Men’s Tuxedo as a free group gift for joining The Regency Ballroom inworld group.  It comes complete with shoes and the red rose boutonniere.

Thank you for contacting me with this great tip, Pepper! 😉

NOTE:  Formal attire is required at the ballroom!

The Perfect Pause

The Perfect Pause

October – the perfect pause between summer and winter.  I have always loved the crisp, cool days of October…..the beauty of the hills, the fallen leaves dancing in the breeze, and the hint of wood smoke in the air.  Although it signaled the close of summer, it also marked the end of the dreaded ragweed season that plagued my childhood.  Luckily, I now live in a part of the country where I don’t have to worry about sneezing and sniffling through the end of summer, nevertheless, I think I will always treasure autumn.

These Boots are Made For…

…traipsing through the leaves.  One thing I especially appreciated about the arrival of fall was pulling out cool weather clothing, and, of course, shopping for new favorites!  I recently discovered these amazing, over-the-knee Alanis boots, which are a free gift from Hilly Haalan for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions group.  I opted for a basic black hue, but could have also used the texture-change Hud to select solid brown or a floral pattern in gray or yellow-gold.  With realistic wrinkles, and a figure-hugging fit, this pair of high heeled footwear will keep my feet and legs toasty and stylishly warm, well into late autumn.

Avatar Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh Classic Avatar (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Sassy Sleeveless Frock

As part of Fifty5 Thursday, I scooped up this belted Gabriella dress at BlackRose Fashion for only 75L.  With a sexy slit in the side, and a plunging neckline, this tailored, sophisticated dress showed off my curves.  It, too, comes with a texture-change HUD, which makes it a versatile addition to any wardrobe.  The special offering will be available only through Sunday, so if you love this dress as much as I do, don’t hesitate to TP on over to the shop.  The sale boards are located to the left of the main service desk in the center of the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Mask
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Ripley and I are thrilled that we made it to Fall Break, and look forward to extra free time to discover some budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with you all.  First, though, we have to survive tire shopping for the old truck… Fun times!  I just hope I can convince the pupster not to christen the tires right away.  I want them looking pretty for at least a few days.  Wish me luck!

That Golden Glow

A Golden Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As Ripley and I took an evening stroll through The Mill, the rays from the setting sun washed over us, horses nickered to each other in the distance, and twin windmills spun lazily in the background.  What a lovely way to end a Monday!

A Golden Moment

The gold hue of my new Eliane pants from Well Made shimmered beautifully in the sunlight.  With a curve-hugging fit, rolled cuffs, and a baroque-style print, these trousers were ideally suited for a casual evening walk, but I could also see them as part of a dressier outfit, depending on what you decide to pair them with.  Best of all they are a free gift for members of the Third Life Group, which has a teensy 10L join fee.  With versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find a size just right for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer
  • Belleza Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

To Top it All Off

My Fusion top in gold was a 60L Marketplace find from Purple Moon Creations.  Using my Omega Relay HUD, I was able to apply the tank to my Maitreya mesh body, then wore the semi transparent flexi vest over top, which gave the outfit a romantic feel.  In addition to the Omega applier, the package includes the base shirt in underwear, shirt, and jacket layers for classic avatars.

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Ripley is pacing and staring at me with his deep chocolate eyes, reminding me that he is s-t-a-r-v-i-n-g (even though there is plenty of dry dog food sitting in his bowl as I write this post).  I think he is holding out for some canned….  Until my  next post, happy shopping!

The Good Witch of the North

The Witch of the North
Hello There Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in my last post, Sanarae is celebrating their Second Anniversary this round. The event will last about two more weeks, so if you haven’t been by yet you’ve still got a little time. In celebration of Sanarae’s birthday, each of the participating vendors has at least one FREE birthday gift. The gifts do require the Sanarae group tag, however the group is FREE to join. I put this look together while going through the gifts I collected. I love the way these items came together, it’s a complete departure from the look in my previous post. With that in mind, I’ve decided to call this The Good Witch of the North. I hope you like it!

Pearls for Your Hair

The pretty pearl tiara is the Sanarae birthday gift from Letituier. This beautifully detailed FREE gift can be sized via touch menu. To get your copy stop by the Letituier booth at Sanarae and click the birthday cake while wearing your Sanarae group tag.

Pearls for Your Throat

I love how well the tiara from Letituier looks with this choker from Shanghai. This is another FREE Sanarae birthday gift you won’t want to miss. Along with the white pearl version shown, the gift includes the following color versions: black, jade, orange, pink, and nude. This choker can also be resized via touch menu.

Shimmer for Your Eyes

Next up, the shimmery eye shadow Pru has on is the Sanarae birthday gift from Zibska. This FREE makeup applier gift has several color options. I think I’ll be using this often, there’s a color to match just about anything. Don’t forget to join the FREE Sanarae event group before clicking the birthday cake at the Zibska booth to get this gift.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka, Omega

Sparkles for Your Wrists

These pretty bangles are the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from OXIDE. The delicate looking bracelets come with a color change hud so you can choose between 5 metal colors and 8 gemstone colors. The hud also allows you to resize, pose, and delete scripts. Like all the gifts at Sanarae, this one will require the Sanarae group tag.

A Little Bit of Lace

Lastly, the delicate lace camisole top is the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from Milk Tea. This sheer white top with delicate blue flowers was just too pretty to not share. If you want to wear it but have it appear a bit less see-through, wear the top on multiple layers. This gift is an Omega applier only.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Wicked Witch of the South

Wicked Witch of the South
Hello My Pretties! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the weekend thus far. I’ve had a good time, especially considering the opportunity to be a little wicked, or at least dress that way. Thanks to some great group gifts, and a few FREE Sanarae Anniversary gifts, I was able to put together this witchy look. Perhaps this could be the start of my Halloween costume this year?! Time will tell.

Witch

The latest group gift at Mossu served as the inspiration for this look. This studded “WITCH” collar is a FREE group gift at Mossu and the Mossu group is currently FREE to join. This fun accessory includes a color change hud that lets you pick from a few preset colors for the studs, the collar, and the letters. To get your copy just head over to Mossu and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your Mossu group tag.

Neon Claws

These long coffin shaped claws are a FREE group gift to Slack Girl group members at the new Slack Girl location for bento nails and accessories. The Slack Girl group is currently 100 linden to join. I love the glossy look of these nails. They come in several sizes/fits, and include a color change hud with a handful of options for the colored streak on a glossy black nail. I went with green because it made me think of my favorite fictional witch, Elphaba, aka the Wicked Witch of the West. Pru however (or the person behind the computer) is southern, hence the play on words.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Tuty, Tonic, Vista

Ombre Lips

You might have heard that the current round of Sanarae is their 2nd Anniversary round. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that means lots and lots of gifts! The wonderfully witchy ombre lipstick Pru is wearing is one of 6 gorgeous color options in the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from Enfer Sombre. Don’t worry, not all the colors are as dark as the one shown. To get your copy of this Catwa applier, you’ll need to join the Sanarae group. The Sanarae group is FREE to join. Then while wearing your Sanarae tag, click the birthday cake at the Enfer Sombre booth.

Septum Piercing

Finally, the delicate septum piercing is also a FREE gift to help celebrate Sanarae’s 2nd birthday. This FREE gift is from Mulloy. You’ll need to wear the Sanarae group tag for this one also, which as I mentioned earlier is FREE to join. This gift comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 4 preset metal colors. You’ll find this gift at the Mulloy booth, just click the birthday cake wile wearing your Sanarae tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Afternoon Tea

Tea_001

I like to have a cup of coffee in the morning, but in the afternoons I’m generally a tea drinker. I especially like a hot tea with milk. It’s a habit I picked up after a visit to London many years ago, and I never gave it up. I found the perfect little spot for tea at an art sim and stopped to take a picture. I think I found the perfect “tea dress” to sit down for that perfect cup!

Flowing flowers

Glitterati by Sapphire puts out a monthly gift like clockwork to make their one-time 100L group join fee worth it. This month you get the pretty flowered frock I’m showing off in the picture. It’s perfect for the last few warm days before we head into the cool days of fall. It comes in all your favorite sizes.

Available sizes:

  • Standard XS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Tea_002

Circular

Sometimes things come full circle and as I was looking for a little something to add to my outfit, I found these cute suspended circle earrings at Baubles! by Phe to add to my look. They are the currently offered as a free SL Frees & Offers group gift at the store, just don that tag and pick them up. They come with a color change hud as well that offers 4 metal choices (brass, gold, silver, and bronze).
