Country Life

Country Life

She said I could rez anything…

After I was allowed to decorate a corner of the house [Here],  it was then decided that my decorating skills would be put to better use outside…     While she was out, I got bored and decided to make the outdoor space a little more “me”. I found the perfect pose prop for the side yard. The Country Life Pose prop by Something New is a FREE group gift to members. This is a group pose, but Chester the goat (yes, there’s a goat wandering the property) ate the other two pose balls before I could gather some friends. The tractor and the sheep are included with this pose (you wouldn’t want Chester). The Something New group is FREE to join.

Late night online shopping…

Another sign of bordom is online shopping. I was told by more than one person I should check out this deal on the Marketplace from Polo Paul (the place my glasses came from, btw). The Alpha Outfit was a steal at just $44L. The Mesh Boots and Mesh Hardcore Jeans both come in sizes XS-XL and the Mesh Leather Jacket w/ Shirt comes in sizes S-L with two fitted sizes as well. I finished off the look by finding the Paper Coffee Cup by Indolent for $10L, also on the Marketplace. When she came home, I did my best model presentation gesture to the tractor and in return received a stern finger point to the man cave…

I need a bigger man cave….

The Evolution of a Hipster

Hipster 1

A box and a box of smokes…

Serena messaged me and told me I was cray cray if I didn’t get down to The Hipster Fair as there were plenty of gifts to be had (and even a few gifts for guys). I popped on over and boy was it … PINK! Once I got used to the color scheme, I started going from store to store looking for the green mustaches for the guy gifts. I managed to find a few dollar gifts to make a couple of amazeball hipster looks to show you. The NIDOLO XIV Outfit can be picked up at the ARTIZANA booth for just $1L. This three-piece outfit consists of the mesh suit pants, mesh shirt w/ tie and mesh suit vest. The look is versatile as the vest and shirt can be worn separately. My Hipster Glasses are a $1L gift from KIB Designs. They come in both male and female versions and can be worn on your face or on the top of your head.

Tired of Walkman around…

I also found the Adam Sweater at the Trashed booth. This $1L gift comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a great casual look. The Classic Spring Camo Sneakers by The Man Cave is a FabFree goup gift that was previously shown [HERE]. My poses are by Image Essentials. The Evolution of a Hipster poses can be had at the Hipster Fair out of a gacha machine for just $50L per turn. You won’t be devo ‘cos you’re heaps povo with theses cheap gifts.

A cure for rain

Renard

Rain, rain go away

Nursery rhymes are rather common in my real life day to day and that particular one has been a ‘fan favorite’ as of late probably due to the fact that it’s been drizzling or outright storming off and on this entire week. To escape, I’ve been traversing through the sunniest sims I could find and it’s pretty fortunate that there are some great deals at the moment to help make my travels a whole lot less costly. Since I’ve been finding my (virtual) self on the uneven ground of the great outdoors more often than not, I thought it prudent to take advantage of the newest group gift from Reign. The Arianna sneakers are not only gorgeous and great quality two hallmarks that I’ve come to associate with Reign but the gift package also includes two different style variations if you’re wearing them for flat mesh feet and a size that fits mesh high feet as well. As someone who hasn’t gotten around to getting flat feet, it was nice to be able to slip on some sneakers for a change on my Slinks.

Here’s a rundown of styles and compatible mesh feet included in the gift package:

  • Belleza mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Belleza Flat) Trippies (for Belleza High)
  • Maitreya mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Maitreya Flat) Trippies (for Maitreya High)
  • Slink mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Slink Flat) Trippies (for Slink High)
  • TMP mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for TMP bare) Trippies (for TMP Ouch)

If you’re wondering what the style variations are for the flat feet it’s between wearing your sneakers normally, and simply slipping them on to leave the ends folded up under your heel. It’s a nice, slouchy detail to be sure. The gift package also includes a hud that allows you to choose between three different colors schemes (red with white hearts, white with black hearts and black with white hearts) for the body of your shoes as well as the laces (choice of three colors) and the sole of the shoe (choice of two colors)

The Reign group has a joining fee of 250L however you can still pick up older group gifts while you’re there.

Welcome addition

It’s certainly a good idea to stock up on those comfy clothes now that I’m nursing a bad case of wanderlust, though truth be told I would have snapped up this lovely pair of denim shorts from Ibela Store on the Marketplace anyway. There’s a serious lack of shorts or even pants in my inventory (or maybe they’re just hidden under the mountains of pet food) so the Mina shorts with it’s high waist and faded wash are certainly a welcome addition. Priced at only 1L, I was pretty glad that I didn’t have to break the bank too.

Sizing details:

  • Five Standard Mesh sizes (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer for classic avatars.
  • One size for the Slink Physique mesh body.
  • One size for the Maitreya mesh body.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to go spend my time with these two cuties, they’re pretty convinced I’m one of them. I’ll leave with a close up picture of the Arianna Sneakers to give you a better picture of what the style variations are. Have fun out there guys!

All you need is…

All you need is

A pair of pink sneakers!

Since my laptop has continued to be in a good mood (though I was really pushing my luck during this shoot, to be honest) I decided to put those long neglected landmarks to use and visit another picturesque sim. A quiet stroll through beautiful countryside called for proper footwear (wouldn’t want to go tripping and rolling into a ditch) and it was the perfect time to slip on these pink pair of high top sneakers that I’ve accommodated for myself recently from Graffitiwear. Not only are they free but they’re part of the full outfit that you see in the picture above.

This adorable and high-quality t-shirt, skirt and sneakers combination is a gift for Valentine’s Day that Graffitiwear has most generously set out. There is no group tag needed for you to grab this outfit for your virtual wardrobe though since freebies like these can be fleeting and I’m not sure how long this gift will be out for, I suggest you do it ASAP. Here are the sizing details:

Knotted t-shirt:

  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Knotted t-shirt alpha layer

Skirt:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-L)
  • Skirt alpha layer

Sneakers:

  • Sneakers alpha layer
  • Sneakers shoe base

I’m wearing the sneakers without the use of my Slink feet and they fit like a dream. While you’re at Graffitiwear, do consider joining their group (the joining fee stands at 5L) or their subscribers group to stay in touch with the great deals going on at the store. There’s also a steady stream of gifts and other perks that make joining the group worthwhile.

A new day a new hairstyle

While waiting for my blind date to turn up ( the date was a bust, by the way, I’ll tell you the story some other time) I passed the time by looking into the Marketplace and came across this beautiful mesh hairstyle from Fabia. Long and flowing and elegant the Rima hair was just up my alley and it didn’t hurt that it only cost 1L. You’ll also get a hud of thirty natural colors to choose from a fact that certainly made me less huffy that he was running late.

Well, that’s a wrap for today. I have more of this countryside to explore so catch you guys later!

Be My Valentine

Snapshot_002Happy Valentine’s Day to all you SLovers out there!  Whether you are spending it romancing the night away with a sloved one or curling up on the sofa with your favourite furrball, I hope it’s a great day for you.

Tonight’s The Night

If you can convince your honey to dress up all “matchy matchy” with you for the big date night tonight, make sure you check out the past notices of the Loca Como tu Madre group for a very generous free group gift for both men and ladies!  It may take a little convincing, some dragon eyes…  and possibly negotiations, but when a woman puts her mind to something, we all know there is no stopping her!

The Loca Como tu Madre shop is marketplace based, so I can’t teleport you to a store, but you can join the group by copy and pasting the following link into local chat to join and then review the past notices of the group for the gift.  secondlife:///app/group/9ad09367-24c5-391a-90d2-3eabc100c420/about

For Her

  • Be My Valentine Dress
  • Be My Valentine Slink Shoes (not shown as I am wearing my Maitreya feet)

For Him

  • Be My Valentine Suit
  • Be My Valentine Shoes

Be My Valentine

Question Of The Day

The adorable pose that I have pretty much forced upon poor Carson is called Be My Valentine and is available for just 1L in the GlamRUs Marketplace store.  It was a real steal and I think would be great for commemorating this special day with your sweetie in a snapshot or for blogging/photography purposes.

The Final Verdict

Will I be his Valentine?  How could I not after he’s jumped through all of these hoops for me?  I should be so lucky!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE ❤

Moooving on

Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

purple dress_012
Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  “Not all those who wander are lost.”  One of my favorite quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien, which lends itself well to today’s post.  The wanderlust bug bit Ripley and I today.  We decided to hit the road in this retro VW bus.  When we reached The Yorkshire Dales sim, we pulled over to camp for the night in our vintage vehicle.  While I lounged in comfort, daydreaming about our adventures to come, Rip cavorted across the grassy meadow, sniffing out bunny trails.

A Passion for Purple

Along our journey, the pup and I had pulled up outside the Petry Model Store, and meandered through the boutique to peruse the inventory.   When I saw the collection of group gifts on the wall, I quickly joined the free Petry Model Store group, and started shopping.  This lovely violet-hued dress was the first free group gift to catch my eye.  As you could probably tell from the hue of my blog post headings, purple is one of my favorite colors.  As soon as I saw this mini, I knew it was my next outfit to blog.  From the front, it appears as though the dress provides solid coverage (which it does in all the right areas), but the side and back views offer a sexy peek of skin.  It features a plunging v-neck, sash at the waist, and a slightly gathered skirt with an asymmetrical hemline.  Before I detail the contents of the gift package, here’s a full, front view picture:

purple dress_011

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza applier for the dress
  • Optional Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega sock applier (not shown in my pictures)

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my look, I slipped on an amethyst pendant from Elemental Earth Designs, which I found on the Marketplace for only 50L.  Its teardrop shaped, sculpted gem is a perfect match for the color of my dress, and the price was right up my alley, too.  The simple styling of the pendant along with its leather cord, provided just the right amount of sparkle while still allowing my dress to shine on center stage.

Time to Rescue the Bunnies

I think it’s time to reign in the pupster, and give the bunnies some well deserved peace and quiet.  After relaxing next to the campfire with a cold beverage for me, and a refreshing bowl of water for the rascally rabbit chaser, we’ll hopefully spot a shooting star to wish on before we call it a night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Now is the Time….

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have quick, time sensitive post to share with you today featuring a free group gift.  The group is free to join only until January 31st, so don’t delay if you would like to scoop up this lovely gift for free.

While Rip and I wandered about SL, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest group gift from MMC Store.  As soon as I opened the texture included in the notice, and had a peek at the Celline dress, I knew she was destined for my inventory.  Quick as a wink, I teleported over to the shop, joined the group, and scooped up Celline, as well as the 5 other group gifts featured on the wall just inside the door.

Little.  Black.  Dress.

Every girl needs a slinky, black dress and this little number is just about as perfect as you can get.  With a daring neckline, sexy cut out, satiny fabric, and darling ties in the back, Celline hugs your curves in all the right places.   Simple enough to wear to work, yet easily accessorized and glammed up for an evening date, this dress is a valuable addition to your SL closet.  The 16-texture HUD included with the gift opens up a wide range of possibilities beyond merely a black dress.  As of January 29th, the group is free to join, and the dress is one of six free group gifts available to members.  As I stated earlier, the free join is for a limited time only, so if you have a hankering for this frock, I’d suggest you pop on over to the MMC Store right away.  After the 31st, the join fee will increase to 50L.  Even at that price, this dress is well worth the fee!

What’s Included

  • Fitted Mesh for Classic Avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic Avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Eve (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), The Mesh Project, and Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
  • Color change HUD packed with 16 textures

That’s it for now, my friends.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:
C&CH2 Pic-Firelight Creations

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.
