Think Pink

Think Pink

Hello, Fab Readers! ūüôā

I know I’ve mentioned many times before that I LOVE pink. So when I saw the sexy, pink group gift out from Nessmarket, I hurried over to grab it! The Lyrical top and skirt are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. But you’ll need to hurry if you want this gift because there are only a limited number available – at the time of¬†writing this post, there were only 110 left!

My pretty floral tattoo is a 1L Marketplace gift from La Femme. It’s called Tree of Life because there is a beautiful tree of life symbol on the back. I neglected to take a photo of the back, but you can see what it looks like by visiting the Marketplace link.

Speaking of pink, it looks like I’ve been photobombed by a flamingo!

Standing Idly By

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!¬† Not only did I come to you today with a couple of Fabulously Free in SL group gift updates, but I have also put together a little post with a sweet 10L dress, some very sexy strappy heels I found as a group gift and just for the heck of it…¬† I used a group gift pose too!

Where’s My Feather Duster?

This black¬†dress is trimmed in a lacy texture that¬†(I think) gives it a little bit of a sexy French maid look to it and you can find it in the VEO marketplace store for just 10L in one mesh Maitreya Lara Body size.¬† There is also a cute yellow lingerie set for 10L offered by the same designer, so if you happen to have another 10L – that’s a great use for it!

Strappy Heels

Are you strapped for cash, but need some new shoes?¬† N-Core has a new group gift out called CLARA Strappy Edition in both black and nude colours right now.¬† If I read right…¬† they will be releasing more colours of these sexy babies on Fridays.¬† I am not sure how many Fridays they will be doing this, but it seems like a great way to collect a free fatpack!¬† This group is currently 199L to join.

Onto The Pose…

Yes!  That coy, leaned against the wall pose is a free group gift in a three pack called [idle] pose set.  You can pick this group gift up with your free group join at West End.  I have added the vendor ad below so you can see all three poses.

A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by¬†QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

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

A Vixen in Crimson

Lady in Red
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I wrapped our Sunday up by taking a stroll on the Anneliese sim.  It was a relaxing way to close out the break from the work week.

Lady in Red

My adorable red dress with a slightly flared hemline is a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Snowpaws. With a vibrant red hue and a coordinating red silk choker, the Soma Ruffle Dress had me feeling bright and cheerful.   From its plunging neckline, to its carefree asymmetrical skirt, this silk frock is perfect for a date night, or just feeling extra special.  It comes in five sizes РXXS, XS, S, M, and L, and the box contains an alpha layer for classic avatars.  The small size was just right for my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  Best of all, you can pick up this crimson beauty completely for free! Simply activate your Fab Free Group tag and teleport over to Snowpaws.  With one quick click, you can add Soma to your inventory.

Budget Friendly Bento Tresses

I discovered my sleek, center-parted Ellie hair style on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden dollar at the Vallani shop. ¬†It comes complete with a tint and style HUD, which contains 9 style options and 30 color variations, which offers a great deal of flexibility. ¬†The hair has fitted and Bento animated versions. ¬† The Bento style is in the experimental stage, but it comes with a quick lock option, so you can stop the movement of your tresses quite easily. ¬†I ended up using this handy HUD to keep my hair still. ¬†I really like the slight wave at the ends of the style. ¬†For just one little Linden Dollar, you can add a lovely, versatile new ‘do to your collection.

Tomorrow, it’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guarding the house for the pupster. ¬†Oh, how I long for our carefree summer days to return! ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping!

Lavender Key of Time

Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Follow Your Butterflies

Follow Your Butterflies

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers! ¬†After a long first week back to work in RL, it sure was nice to have a quiet moment with the pupster on the front porch. ¬†When a butterfly alighted on my outstretched hand, that moment became pure magic, but I should have expected that since I was standing in Luane’s World – a romantic, magical sim.

The Dress

My frock today is the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  The Strapless Spring Dress features a soft lavender bodice, and a white skirt adorned with an elegant purple and lavender butterfly.  It was perfect for a late summer morning exploring with Ripley.  I love the delicate double strap detail at the neckline, which is echoed on the deeply plunging back.  With mesh and fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as popular mesh body types, this outfit will fit almost any avatar.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join, so you can scoop up this little number for a song!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The Necklace

My Mesh Whimsical Butterfly Necklace from ~{Sasha Lee}~ is part of a set that I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It features a long, silver chain, and a silver butterfly with a diamond studded body, and opalescent jewels embedded in its wings.  Matching earrings complete the set, but I chose not to wear them for my photo.  It seemed like it was almost made to go with my lovely new dress!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Road Trip Around the Grid

Puppy Trio

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello there, Fabulouses! ¬†Ripley and I set off Around the Grid, and while visiting the Facepalm Clothing Company, scooped up a lacy top and short set (called Road Trip) for just one little Linden dollar over the weekend. ¬†I really like the way Road Trip’s wrap-style tunic has an asymmetrical hemline, which is very short in the front, but long and flowing in the back. ¬†The airy fabric keeps you well covered in strategic places, yet allows for a subtle peek at your midsection. ¬†The hunt gift also includes a faded pair of denim shorts that hugged the curves of my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly. ¬†If you don’t feel like searching for the smaller hot air balloon hunt object, you can purchase the prize for 25L by locating the Around the Grid Hunt display, and clicking the larger hot air balloon located next to the sign.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Clearance Sale Tresses – Oh Yes!

When we needed a break from all that searching around along the hunt trail, Ripley and I visited Elikatira, and happily discovered the shop is in the midst of a Clearance Sale. ¬†After doing a little happy dance, I discovered the ideal boho hairstyle to complete my Road Trip outfit. ¬†Eden is a long, straight, center parted ‘do with a headband, that fit just the look I had in mind. ¬†Included in the package is a daisy add on for the headband, which I felt echoed the creamy hue of my top perfectly. ¬†For just 72L per pack, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of color varieties (and a few other hairstyles as well). ¬†I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so if you are interested in some high quality hairstyles at very budget-friendly prices, I’d recommend heading over to Elikatira as soon as possible.

Savoring the Last Few Days of Freedom

Ripley and I are enjoying our last few days of summer freedom. ¬†All too soon, it will be back to the grindstone for me, and long days of silence, interrupted by some barking at the cats for Ripley when I head back to my job. ¬†I hope no matter what you are doing in real life, you are able to work in some “you time.” ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping (and hunting!).

A Slight Navigational Mishap

Wrong Turn

Hello Fabulouses! ¬†Ripley and I decided to head to another beach to continue enjoying our long weekend, but, sadly, his navigational skills are not quite up to par with his fantastic nose. ¬†We got hopelessly lost after a wrong turn, and while trying to find the correct route, ran out of gas. ¬†Well, if I have to be sidelined, at least I can be stranded in style…

Free Shorts?  Count Me In!

Before leading us down the wrong path somewhere along the way, Ripley sniffed out a great find at the [WellMade] in world store, so I can’t be too upset with him for his co-piloting abilities. ¬†In addition to ten other free gifts for WellMade group members, the generous designer has set out these cuffed Natallie shorts for free. ¬†Best of all, the WellMade group is completely free to join. ¬†Adorned with two columns of triple buttons, the shorts fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly. ¬†The gift package includes a color change HUD that enables you two choose between this deep crimson shade and a navy blue hue. ¬†If you don’t have a group slot available, you can also pick up these summertime staples at the [WellMade] Marketplace shop for only 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Textures and Colors Galore

Back when The Cart Wash Sale was in full swing, I blogged about a cute little white Babado top in my post {HERE}. ¬†Since that time, Bacidalucia Oh has created a new version which includes a HUD enabling you to select one of four texture options and 18 color choices. ¬†To coordinate with my shorts, I opted for a deep red shade with the first of the four background prints, but there are so many other available combinations….all for only 49L. ¬†You get the same off the shoulder fit, and softly draped fabric, finished with ric-rack trim as the original, with multiple options for customization. ¬†To add this cropped top to your inventory, teleport over to the Baci shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

A Trail of Ripley Snacks

Instead of handing a map to my hound with a nose for fashion, I probably would have been better off leaving a trail of Ripley snacks to follow, kind of Hansel and Gretel style. ¬†Live and learn, I guess… ¬†Now, do any of you wonderful readers have a gallon of gas you can spare? ūüėČ Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses! ¬†Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach! ¬†With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday. ¬†I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy. ¬†It will be wonderful! ¬†I hope you have some time with family and friends, too. ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping!

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Monday Monday

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I sure put his tracking harness to good use lately.  This time, we hit the trail on the Four Seasons Hunt 2 and discovered this gorgeous flowing skirt (called Petra) from Trashed.  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline, which is short in the front, but falls to knee length in the back, Petra drew many compliments as I wandered throughout SL.  A violet and green floral print splashed across a black background coordinates beautifully with a violet inner lining.  The waistline and side ribbons echo this contrasting hue.  I imagined the skirt trailing behind me on the breeze as Ripley and I strolled through the Mystical Fae Forest.  This has to be one of my most favorite hunt finds of all time.  I just adore this skirt!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

The Four Seasons Hunt 2 runs until July 30 and offers gifts priced at 1L each, which are themed for one of the four seasons.   There are 22 goodies to be discovered from a variety of talented designers.  Ripley and I look forward to bringing you another Fabulous Find soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
