Witches Brew

Witches Brew

I should have listened to Love’s advice in her post {HERE}.  “Be careful what you conjure, witches,” she said.  I thought I read the spell correctly.  I really did………but somehow, I turned my pal Ripley into his arch-enemy…….a cat!  See him perched up there on my shoulder?  See that look on his face?  He is NOT happy…….not one little bit!  I am hoping that one of our Fabulous Readers can point me to the antidote.   Either that, or perhaps Love can help me out…

It All Started At The Cart Wash

As the pupster and I unpacked our Cart Wash boxes, I began with this adorable silver Cobwebbed Mini Dress from MishMash Fusion, which is a one of 11 shades in the MishMash Fusion gacha machine.  This strapless frock features an all-over spiderweb print, which is adorned with a black ruffled trim and waistband.  As soon as I put it on, I fell in love with the loose-fitting skirt, which has plenty of extra fabric for it to swish with each step.  The package contains standard fitted mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, so I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for your avatar.   At only 20L per play, you can easily stock up on a variety of colors.

What’s Included:

  • Standard Fitted mesh
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Along Came a Spider

With the web pattern on my new dress, I couldn’t resist an arachnid-style necklace.  For just 1L on the Marketplace, I scooped up this Spider Necklace for Woman from La Forgia Jewels.  This bauble features onyx, moonstone and steel beads, and a spider pendant in the center.  I thought it complemented my new frock well, and the price was just right!

I Needed Just One More Item…

The only thing missing was a witch hat (not a witch CAT, but a witch HAT).  I set up my cauldron, pulled out all the ingredients, and began the incantation…  Then, it happened; just when I chanted the words, my nose twitched and I sneezed a great sneeze!  A green mist floated up from the brew, and when it cleared, instead of a HAT, I had a very annoyed former-German-Shepherd-now-CAT glaring at me.  “I-I-I-I’ll make it right, Buddy.  I promise!” I stammered.

So, you see my dilemma, Fabulouses.  I picked up a terrific mini dress and necklace for a grand total of just 21L, but I also made a HUGE mistake in my magic spell.  If anyone knows the antidote, Ripley and I will sure appreciate your assistance.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Mesmerizing Margo

Margo

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to introduce you to Margo, this amazing free Catwa head applier that you can scoop up as a group gift.  Isn’t she just beautiful?  As soon as I tried on the October gift for members of the Wow Skins group, I just knew I had to tell you all about it!  With dark eyebrows and a tan skin tone, this gorgeous flawless complexion is sure to become a favorite of mine!   In case you would prefer not to be a brunette, Sawsan Secretspy, the generous designer at Wow Skins, also included a no brow option so you can add your own brows to match your hair color.  I slicked on a touch of liner to accent my eyes, but other than that, what you see in my picture is the skin right out of the box.  The Wow Skins group costs 450L to join, but membership gives you access to all previous group gifts, plus group-only lucky boards, midnight mania offerings, and two group-only lucky chairs as well.   This skin alone is well worth the fee!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

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!

An Unexpected Journey

Ripley, What Have You Done?
Hello, Fabulous Readers!  Today, Ripley and I returned to one of our favorite sims – Deciduous.  We traveled down a path we had never explored before, and stumbled across a lovely cove complete with a gentle surf calmly lapping the shore.  An old wooden rowboat sat abandoned on the beach.  Ever curious, the pupster trotted off to investigate.  He hopped aboard, and began sniffing the cushions piled in the stern section of the boat.  Glancing back at me, he gave me that “I’ve found something interesting!” look, so I joined him.  That’s when our curious adventure began.  Unexpectedly, the ancient craft unfurled wings and soared into the sky.   While I stumbled and attempted to keep my balance, Rip happily faced the bow, his nostrils twitching in the wind, and his tail wagging gently with anticipation. “Oh, Rip, what have you gotten us into this time?” I wondered.

At Least I Looked Lovely…

Whatever magical kingdom we were about to visit, I was comforted by the thought that I was dressed for a fairy tale adventure in my free Princess Pink gown from GIULIADESIGN.  This gorgeous flowing frock features a plunging neckline, delicate shoulder straps, and a whimsical criss-crossed tie that accentuates the waistline.  Pale roses adorn the fabric which shimmers in the sunlight.  The gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group also includes a coordinating clutch, which I must have dropped in my moment of panic when our vehicle sprouted wings.  You can add this “fit for a princess” gown to your inventory completely for free.  Simply activate your SLF&O group tag (the group is also free to join), teleport over to the shop, and give the vendor a quick tap.  It will be almost as if you have a built in fairy godmother to equip you for the ball.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic avatars with a “feet” and “no feet” verison
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Here’s a close up of my stunning new dress taken after we safely returned from our visit to the magical kingdom.  As you can probably tell from the picture, I was quite happy to be standing once again on the shore at Deciduous!

Safely Back on Land
Although I sent Ripley on a search and rescue mission to recover my lost bag, he was unable to locate it.  If you travel to the sim, and happen to discover a pink evening clutch, would you please send it my way?  Until my next post, Ripley and I will be keeping ourselves firmly on solid ground (right boy?).  Happy shopping!

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!

Lavender Skies

Lavender Dawn
Hello again, Fab Free Readers!  Ripley and I went out early for our walk this morning in RL.  By the time we got back, the powerful sun was beating down, and we both knew it was time to head to SL for some cooler temperatures.  We found the ocean breeze and the crash of the waves at Banana Bay refreshing after our desert walk.

A Scattering of Pretty Petals

My strappy Rosse Dress from Kendrasy Creations features an all-over floral print sprinkled across a white background.  Its sleek fit flattered my figure, while still providing coverage in all the right places.   Packed with realistic details such as stitching on the hem, and folds in the fabric, this charming free gift for the Mesh Body Friends group made a delightful addition to my SL wardrobe.  Since the group is free to join, I was able to scoop up this darling mini for a song.  Happy dance time!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The pupster and I are off to seek out more budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wait, I Thought We Were Falling into Autumn!

Fall into Autumn

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Whew,  we made it to the weekend!  I was hoping the cooler weather we had last week was here to stay, but sadly the desert has warmed up again.  So, the pupster and I will probably spend more time on SL, which undoubtedly will lead to more Fabulous Finds to share with you.

Fall into Autumn…

Oh, how I wish I could be basking in cooler temperatures, but at least I can look beautiful in SL, especially in my new sleeveless mini dress from Pink Passion.  The Fall into Autumn frock has a sprinkling of bright yellow and merlot-colored flowers scattered across a creamy white background.  The playful pattern conveyed a cheerful feeling, and I couldn’t help but smile when I donned my new outfit.   To scoop up the free dress for yourself, simply switch to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and teleport to Pink Passion.  You’ll find the vendor on the gifties wall.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Lara

Here’s hoping you are enjoying favorable temperatures in your part of the world.   If not, I am sure you can join Ripley and I as we explore the vast world of Second Life, and perhaps even indulge in some retail therapy.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

You Had Me At Pink

Pretty in Pink
Hello Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I wandered the grid in search of some autumn colors, and came across this lovely patch of wildflowers on the Salt Water sim.  Although they weren’t the fall foliage we were seeking, they coordinated beautifully with my new dress, so I just had to snap a photo.

Pretty in Pink

Speaking of my frock, this lovely mini is a free gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends group from Hilly Haalan.  In a deep rose hue, this sleeveless little number features sexy lacing in the front and the back.  I love the soft shimmer of the fabric and the way the skirt flares slightly to allow freedom of movement.  This dress is so sweet and feminine!  It is designed specifically for mesh avatars, and fit my Maitreya Lara body beautifully.  Best of all, since the Mesh Body Friends group has no join fee, I was able to scoop up the Estela dress completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

I don’t know about you, but I sure am glad tomorrow is Friday!  This has been a long, busy week for me in RL, and I am looking forward to some relaxation and lazy moments this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dream a Little Dream

Dream a Little Dream

Hello Fabulouses… I hope you had a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I visited “The Silent Mind” on Dalaran for the first time on Sunday, and found it to be a peaceful, beautifully landscaped sim.  With soft hues, white, lacey flowers, and glowing lights in the trees, the environment had a serene, dream-like quality.  I’d highly recommend a visit!

Feeling Chic in Paisley

My Tribal Jumpsuit from Gypsy Chic was perfect for a stroll on a warm autumn day.  I love the vibrant colors and cheerful paisley print of the fabric, which is accented with a slender white belt.  The plunging “v” in the bodice felt flirty and daring, while the halter-style collar held everything securely in place.  This free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group contains sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies, so it is a great addition to any wardrobe.  To scoop up the gift for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to Gypsy Chic and tap the vendor ….so easy!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitted mesh version
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

Well, tomorrow it’s back to the old grindstone for me, and back to guard dog duty for the pupster.   Wouldn’t it be great if every weekend would be a three day weekend?  Then again, after awhile, I’d probably wish for four day weekends…. Until my next post, happy shopping!
