A Whole New World

Living in a fairy tale…

Isn’t that what Second Life is all about? If you can dream it, you can be it. So, today I decided that I would relive one of those special movies from my daughter’s childhood, Aladdin. I was lucky enough to find the Arabian Nights costume at ~MystRie~ for just 1L as part of the Fairy Tale Hunt. The costume consists of a vest, pants with shoes, both in sizes XS-XL, armbands, a necklace, a turban, and even a beard. But you need to hurry. The Fairy Tale Hunt ends on January 10th.

On a magic carpet ride…

Playing Aladdin would not be complete without a flying carpet. I found exactly what I needed on the Marketplace with The Magic Carpet by siliconedoll. This 10L item is wearable so you can ride the air currents wherever you go. It also includes different sitting poses to fly the skies in comfort.

I’m in the Mood for Blueberries and Cherry Blossoms

Fox in the Snow

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a free group gift and another budget-friendly hunt prize with you.  They pair together well to create a simple, casual, and very comfortable outfit.

Adorned With Twin Bows

First, my adorable long sleeved top from Blueberry features a pair of texture change laces that add a whimsical touch.  You can opt to coordinate them with one of the 35 color choices for the top, or select a contrasting option.  You can even adjust the metal of the eyelets, too.  With so many hues available, this top is sure to become a wardrobe favorite of mine!  To pick up this free group gift for yourself, all you need to do is head over to the shop, activate the Blueberry Store Group tag (20L join fee) and tap the vendor.  With other gifts available for members, your 20L investment will be well worth while.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Cozy Leggings

A prize in the Dear Santa Hunt, I picked up my crimson leggings at Cherry’s Blossom for just one Linden dollar.  They hugged my every curve and fit my Maitreya mesh body beautifully.  An all-over muted pattern provided visual interest, and the fabric had a slight sheen to it.  I could see wearing these under a sweater dress for extra warmth on a winter day.  To add the Cozy Leggings to your inventory, search the shop until you locate the hunt object, which is a letter to Santa.  After that, it’s just a matter of paying the teensy fee, and then scurrying home to open up the box.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a good start.  I don’t know about you, but I am counting the days until my holiday break.  I’m looking forward to having some extra time to spend relaxing with my family, and of course, looking for more Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Skate Like Nobody’s Watching

Poised

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  After Ripley and I left the La Vie sim yesterday, we decided to try our luck on the Peace On Earth Hunt, and made our way over to the OMG! Inc. store.  There, the pupster’s talented nose discovered the hidden snowflake which contained the free Skater Dress I’m wearing in my picture.  This fun and flirty outfit inspired a trip to an ice covered pond at Moonchuck Winter Wonderland for a late afternoon glide across the frozen water.  With sizes for classic as well as popular mesh avatars, you’re sure to find a fit for you!  The prize package includes a texture change HUD with 5 options to choose from.  I love the way the knotted top offers a sexy peek at my mid section.  With the generously flared skirt, your avatar will have plenty of freedom for your finest figure skating moves!  Best of all, you can pick up a copy for yourself for just a small investment of time.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

My Jam

PayingItForwardMaddict
If you had to choose…

What would be your favourite song of all time? I don’t mean the song in the top 40 that is your current favourite (although it could be..), or a special song you have with a loved one, I mean… that awesome song that you blast when it comes on the radio and you know every last word to.  That song that makes everything else around you disappear for a couple of minutes and just fills your heart with “happy”.

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world

That song for me is “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, and when it came on the radio on the way to work the other day it inspired the idea that I needed to find some great headphones in Second Life.  It didn’t take long to find these cool frosting headphones in the Bantam Marketplace Store for just 1L in three different colours!

Headphones Colour Options:

  • Pink/Blue
  • Cream/Green
  • Red/Yellow

You can find my Cozy Sweater Set that includes the holiday sweater and matching panties as a free Paying It Forward group gift (free to join) at the Maddict display at The Paying It Forward Event.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

As previously mentioned on FabFree by both Aline and myself [HERE], [HERE], [HERE] and [HERE]…  There are free group gifts in almost every stall!

Right in the Kisser

Right in the kisser

Photo by Carson Caiben

It is so ON!

What started out as a nice, enjoyable walk in the snow, turned into an all out fight… a SNOWBALL fight that is. We were having a conversation, then, BAM! Right in the kisser! It was all out war until we were both covered in snow and fell back in a drift exhausted.

Match Game…

Before the great war to end all snowball fights, we happened upon a couple of great gifts at Club Escape. We both picked up the FREE matching Simon and Kimmie Jackets group gifts from Loud Rebel Designs (LRD). The sizes on the jackets are as follows:

Ladies Jacket Sizes:

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

Men’s Jacket Sizes:

  • 2 Fitmesh sizes w/ alpha layers

We also picked up the group gift gloves from i.mesh at Club Escape that matched the jackets. The FREE Bento Male and Female Gloves are a welcome addition to my bento collection.

Capping it off…

I awoke to a notice that there was a new group gift at ARGRACE. The Shizuki Cap w/ Hair is FREE to group members and the included HUDs contains 6 cap color and 40 hair tones. There is also a ladies style group gift as well..

A Dust of Snow

A Dust of Snow

 

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As a light dusting of snow sprinkled down from the sky, Ripley and I traveled to the North sim for a late afternoon stroll.  The only sounds that broke the winter silence were the crunch of our footsteps and the faint rustle of branches stirred by the breeze.  Although it was chilly, I was all wrapped up in a full length cardigan that we discovered as a free gift in the Women Only Hunt 4.

A Hug That Lasts All Day

As we walked, the thick knit of this Weirdo Duster from Oubliette nestled around me, keeping me cozy and warm.  It features a built in crop top, extra long sleeves, and slits in the side for easy walking.  It offered protection from the elements, and also provided a sexy glimpse of skin.  I knew I could always pull the edges closed if need be, but thanks to the magic of SL, I was totally comfortable, bare tummy and all!  Inside the gift box, I found versions for multiple mesh bodies, as well as an infinity scarf that I chose not to wear in my photo because my hair already had a scarf built in.  Since the Women Only Hunt 4 prizes are completely free, I scooped up this woolen wonder for a song!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

I’m Just Catching Snowflakes

Catching Snowflakes

Hello Fabulous Readers!  In my post on Monday, I shared the Women Only Hunt 4 gift from Naive.  The pupster and I continued along the trail, and today I have another free hunt giftie to share with you.  This time, rather than a formal, elegant look, I have a more casual sweatshirt, which is bound to keep you comfy and sheltered from the elements.

Hoodie Weather

The Abbie Pull Over from Justice is a sweatshirt that I’d be perfectly comfortable wearing in RL as well as SL.  In fact, as soon as I saw it, I found myself wishing I could have an exact duplicate for the real me to sport in the outside world.  There’s nothing like the warmth you get from a cozy hoodie on a wintry afternoon!  Featuring realistic folds, gray cuffs, and dangling ties which are hiding behind my hair, this sweatshirt hugs your curves and is long enough to seal out any breeze trying to work its way through.  I love its muted, dusky teal color.  To scoop one up for yourself, journey over to the Justice store and search around for the snowflake hidden somewhere inside.  Since this is a free hunt, you can pick up a fantastic top for just a small investment of your time.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

My hound with a nose for fashion and I are off to see if we can complete the hunt tonight.  I stocked up on Ripley snacks, so we should be good to go.  I sure don’t want to forget them again. Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Two Birds on a Fence

Two Birds

Hello there, Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  In the midst of a quiet morning walk, Ripley and I paused to listen to chirping and trills from two feathered friends perched on a rustic fence in the Oh Deer sim.  What a lovely start to our day!

Free as a Bird

Before leaving home, I slipped into my silver Rossi Skinny Jeans, which are a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group from Alter.  These curve-hugging trousers feature a lovely swirled embellishment on the right thigh that is just so pretty!  The designer also added soft folds at the knees and a frayed hole in one leg.  These jeans have been lovingly worn and are so so comfy!  To pick up a pair for yourself, journey over to Alter, activate your Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Casual Comfort

My warm Shoulder Sweater from Beck was a 50L Marketplace find that coordinated beautifully with the swirled pattern on my pants.  Its long sleeves and tight knit sheltered me from the chill in the air, while its one-shoulder-bare style added a touch of playfulness.  The sweater itself was comfortably loose, but featured a hemline that fit my waist snugly.  Designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body, this pullover is a terrific addition to my winter wardrobe.

Well, the pupster and I had better head on home and tackle our “to-do” list.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!
