Tiny Pearls of Snow

Evergreen

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Sunday to you!  Ripley and I encountered this cute, book-loving duo on the Deciduous sim, and I just had to pose with them to take a snapshot.  Aren’t they both adorable?  Mr. Chippers was busily stuffing his cheeks with Christmas cookies while Peeps was scolding him to save some for a poor, hungry bird.  I do hope there will be at least a few crumbs leftover for him!

White as Newly Fallen Snow

While we were out doing a bit of holiday shopping, the pupster and I paid a visit to Sweet E’s Designs, and I spotted a lovely lacey mini dress on the Midnight Madness board.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a quick tap, and continued on my way.  The next morning when I logged in, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer, and quickly set to work opening the package.  Nestled inside, I discovered the White Lace Dress I had hoped to win the day before.  I added the Maitreya applier, and presto – the bodice of the dress instantly appeared, hugging my every curve.  With its vertical piping, plunging neckline, and four gleaming buttons, this dress is just so pretty.  I love the loose cuffs that you add to the sleeves that give the outfit a romantic feel.  An optional collar and skirt panel completed the look, but since the temperature dipped quite low in my area today, I decided to remove the skirt panel and don a long, flowing maxi skirt instead.  This gift makes an adorable mini dress, but also does double duty as a beautifully textured top as well!

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Maitreya, Eve, Omega, Slink and TMP
  • Jacket, shirt and pants layer for classic avatars
  • Sleeves, collar and skirt panel (skirt panel has varieties for mesh and non mesh avatars)

In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman

Well, Izzie Button actually made the snowmen, and boy are they darling!  Set out under the tree at her shop as a free holiday gift to all, are two adorable pearl snowman earrings, each adorned with a bow tie and top hat.  She also included a texture change HUD so you can alter the hue of the pearls by selecting one of nine color options.  I opted to keep the pearly white tone to coordinate with my top.  You can see them better in my close up photo below.  No group membership is required.  All you need to do is teleport to Izzie’s Mainstore, and look under the tree.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the winter blush Serena mentioned in her post {HERE} as well as candy cane eyeliner that Love blogged {HERE}.

Hello Little Snowman

Sad News for Peeps

I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Chippers stuffed every single cookie from the bench into his cheek pockets.  Poor Peeps!  I promised him that Ripley and I would head over to the farm supply store and pick up some birdseed for him, but I think he was really looking forward to that gingerbread.  Hopefully a full bag of sunflower mix will help to console him.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Of Counts and Mince Pies

Of Counts and Mince Pies

The Holiday Season is upon us, and that calls for cute dresses galore!  I was invited to a party by some dude who calls himself “Count Ladislaus”.  He said there would be mulled wine, and mince pies, and all sorts, so I rummaged through my inventory, but alas, no appropriate frock was to be found!   I bundled myself up, and jumped out into the cold to find something that would look festive and not break the bank.

Eureka!

My taxi dropped me off in front of TRS Designs, where there were several group gifts to be had!  The TRS Designs group is free to join, to which I said “huzzah!”.  The Midnight Madness boards caught my fancy as they have rather low goal (20 slaps and you win!) , so I gave them a tap.  Only a few minutes later, and much to my delight, there was a lovely free dress in my inventory!

That evening, I donned my dress, buckled my shoes, got my hair did, and headed to the party!  Turns out Count Ladislaus was nothing but a Baronet, and the mince pies were overcooked.  I guess you can’t have everything in this Second Life!

A Quiet Moment With Idelisa

Solitude

Hello Fabulous Readers!  It was a day to pause and be thankful here in the US as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  After a dinner with family, the pupster and I spent a peaceful evening at the Kittens Cradle sim.  It’s really a wonderful place to explore!

Introducing…Idelisa

In my past couple of posts {HERE} and {HERE}, I’ve shown you some beautiful Lucky Board prizes available at .Lunaria.  While we were waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I spotted a gorgeous long gown on the free Daily Prize Board and gave the vendor a tap.  I waited patiently, then as midnight rolled around, “Idelisa” was delivered to my inventory.  A long white, sleeveless gown, with golden trim, this lovely frock features a fitted bodice and a skirt which falls gracefully to floor level.  I really like the way the ivory fabric fades into sparkling golden tones at the hemline.  With sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies, this free frock will fit a majority of avatars.  The target for the daily prize is just 25, so teleport on over to the shop, invite your friends, and it’s a pretty good bet that the goal of 25 slaps will be met!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Physique
  • Venus

After our delicious turkey dinner, we sliced into that pumpkin pie I’ve been talking about and it was …. heavenly!  Thank goodness it turned out ok……I’ve been looking forward to it for days! 🙂  Maybe I should make pies more often, but then again, that was RL, not SL, so calories count.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cotton Candy After Midnight

Wrapped in a Cozy Cardigan

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  On chilly fall days such as this, I love, love, love to cloak myself in a toasty warm cardigan.  Ripley and I recently teleported over to @rOrO to take a look around, and I’m so glad we did!  I picked up my new, super-long sweater as a free Midnight Mania prize there.  All I had to do was tap the board on the wall, cross my fingers, and hope that the target of 10 slaps would be reached by midnight.  Sure enough, when the clock struck 12, my prize was delivered!

Raspberry and Teal

Featuring an ombre color scheme composed of a jewel-like raspberry hue fading to a dusky teal, this sweater-jacket kept both my arms and legs shielded from the brisk air.  The playful diamond-shaped pattern on the outer shell coordinated beautifully with the solid-colored shirt underneath.  This sexy little crop top offered a glimpse of my tummy, but I was comforted by the fact that should the wintery air become too uncomfortable, all I had to do was pull together the sides of my cardigan to warm up.  I really liked the added detail of the dark necklace, which is included as part of the top.   To pick up this Cotton Candy Argyle Cardigan and Shirt for yourself, simply journey to @rOrO and give the board a tap.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

While you’re at the store,  here’s hoping that your letter will come up on the lucky boards.  There are also a variety of dollarbies on the wall offered for sale, and a collection of group gifts as well, including one for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Virtue Exterior

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a great start to the weekend. This week’s Designer Friday post is featuring Virtue. Just as the name might suggest Virtue is a clothing shop where you’ll find modest yet pretty women’s clothing. Most of the styles are what I would call casual to business casual. At the Virtue landing point you’ll see the area is beautifully landscaped without being overwhelming. Once you enter the store you’ll be greeted by the information desk and you’ll see a couple of group gifts waiting for you to the left, and the usual information and an online indicator for the owner of Virtue to the right.
Virtue Gifts and Boards

As I mentioned above you’ll spot two group gifts to the left as you enter the Virtue main store. One of those group gifts is the FREE Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift. This gift does require the Fab Free group tag, however the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. It is in the room to the right that you’ll find even more FREE gifts. There is a single group only Midnight Mania board for Virtue group members, there are a few group only Lucky Letter boards. In this room is also where the Virtue group gifts can be found. There are quite a few Virtue group gifts to be had at this time. The Virtue group is FREE to join. Don’t miss out on these fabulous FREEbies ladies! Thanks for reading and Happy Shopping!

Back in Black with a Triple Pack

Back in Black Collage

Fade to Black…

You can never go wrong in basic black. It fits most every situation and you always look good no matter what the occasion.  I was lucky enough to stumble across not one but THREE basic black looks and all it cost me was one touch of a slap of a board. The Leather Jacket Triple Pack is the Midnight Mania gift at !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. This beautifully crafted leather jacket comes in solo (just the jacket), with a black t-shirt or black turtleneck. This black combo comes in sizes S-L with two fitmesh sizes as well. Also included in the package are shapes in XS-XL.  Now go slap that board and get back in black!

Feels Like Monday

EnticeMMOpen

This morning started out great!

I woke up to a brand new “Let it Snow” Outfit auto sent to me for FREE as the Midnight Mania Board at Entice I slapped yesterday had locked down.  I put it on all in one click, no muss no fuss and was even able express my own personal style with the colours a little due to the texture change HUD that was included.  All I had to dig out of my pixel closet was a pair of boots, because even the jacket was part of the prize!  The mitten pockets are OH so cute!

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Fit

I was at an all time high until…

Oh crap… I forgot my library books and had to go back from them.  Now I think I missed the bus…  AND I think I have Mr. C for study hall this afternoon.  That guy never lets us get away with anything!  It feels like Monday all over again…  At least I look good 😉

Note:  There are two midnight mania boards at Entice.  This one in particular is open to all.  The other one, you’ll need to join the group for.  It’s  too – I’ll show it off soon 🙂

Stretching It Out

Stretching It Out

Morning Routine…

For roughly three months now, I’ve been getting up every morning and going for a walk/jog. It started small at first, a quarter of a mile, then a half mile, etc. (no Love, I will not do the metric conversions for you). After I started back to work, I have been arriving early and using the on site facilities to continue my morning routine. I am now up to 2.5 miles every day, seven days a week. That’s all before breakfast.

Workout Wear…

For my running gear today I put together from some free and not free items.  I found the Leman Pants at Prism for Men , another L’Homme Magazine group gift. The gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join. The Jeffery Tank from A&D Clothing is not free (199L), but I thought it went well with the pants The tank also comes with a necklace. I won my FREE running shoes, the “Trey” Graffiti Kicks at Rebellion off the Midnight Mania Board. The gifts rotate daily and you don’t need a group tag to touch this board, so check and see what’s on the board today.

Ok, I need to run…seriously I’m stretched and ready to run…. Later!
