It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

The First Snow

FabFree: The First Snow

Hello there Fabulouses!  Living in Canada, it is definitely not the first snow of the season for me in real life, but this is the first bit of snow this season that I have seen in Second Life!  The Atheneaum Sim is twinkling beautifully with sparkly fresh snow, and for just a while I forget that I hate winter, because it’s so pretty!

Good thing I had a new parka!

Actually I had two new parkas, because at Scandalize on the massive group gift wall there is the Parka in White AND Midnight that includes the top in two versions and the hooded furry parka.  I decide to wear the white top from the white set and the midnight coat from the midnight set, but you can wear them however you like.  Also included, but not shown on my avatar is a tailed version of the top!  The Scandalize inworld group is 100L to join, but you’re totally missing out if you aren’t in it!  At least go check out the wall of gifts!

Sizes Included:

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

Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

A Contradiction

A Contradiction

Sometimes I feel like a good contradiction in terms is just what I need.  Maybe something like “he gave her another first kiss” – or maybe something slightly less thought-provoking, like pairing a puffer jacket with a cocktail dress.  I’ve always enjoyed mixing it up just a little to incite conversation!

Bow Down

Queenz has a really awesome group gift out this month – and it’s this gorgeous dress.  I wore it during my wanderings in SL, and got quite a few compliments.  The strap coils up and about your neck in a very pleasing way, making things visually interesting.  It comes with an HUD to change to five different colours (I went with a dark purple) and is completely free!  I just joined the Queenz group for FREE and clicked on the vendor.  There are a whole bunch of other cool gifts there too, so make sure you grab them all!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya

Bundle Up

It’s getting cold up here in the Northern marches, and I wouldn’t want my avi to die of consumption, now would I?  Luckily, there’s a really cute 5L gift for everyone out at Tatiko.  There are several different options for the colours on the jacket in the HUD, even some Christmassy looks.  Head on over to Tatiko and bundle up!

Sizes

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

Who doesn’t love a good contradiction in terms?

Down in The Shire

The Elven Way

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Rip and I are popping in with a quick post featuring a fantastic outfit, which is perfect for role play.  The entire ensemble, from cape to boots, is all included in the prize for The Red Hunt from Feyline Fashions, and it only cost 10L.  The Red Hunt is in support of Team Diabetes of SL, an official and authorized team of the American Diabetes Association.  All proceeds from the hunt go directly to Team Diabetes of SL.  I have several family members in RL who suffer from diabetes, so I am happy to participate in this hunt and pay just 10L each for some fantastic prizes.

The Elven Way

Once I began wearing the different components of the Vashti Anduine outfit, I just knew I was going to wear some fantasy elf ears and head on over to The Shire for an extended visit.  The prize package includes everything I’m wearing in my picture from the necklace and cape right down to the high heel boots.  I love the pairing of deep red and dark blue along with the golden accents.   A collared cape and belly jewel are also tucked inside the box, but I opted not to wear them.  The generous designer included classic avatar versions as well as an Omega Applier, so there is something for everyone in this prize, and you get it all for just 10 Linden dollars.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Applier
  • Top
  • Sleeves
  • Body Veils
  • Cape and Collared Cape version
  • Collar
  • Belt
  • Chest Medallion
  • Necklace
  • Pants
  • Skirt
  • Boots (includes alpha layer and boot base)

Back Down the Hunt Trail We Go

The pupster and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can come across on the trail of The Red Hunt.  We’ll be searching for the red and gray diabetes awareness ribbon.  The hunt, which features red items, runs through right through Diabetes Awareness Month, so you have until November 30th to scoop up some fabulous goodies and support a great cause.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Gone Glamping

Gone Glamping

I’m bundling up and ready for the gusty blasts that November are sending my way!  I still want to spend some time outside, of course – so I totally found the perfect outfit for a camping excursion out in the middle of nowhere! (And by camping, I mean pretending to be very woodsy while having literally no idea what I’m doing!)

Bundle Up

This really fantastic coat and top set come courtesy of Atik and is their newest group gift.  I joined the group for free and have literally been living in this duo since I picked it up!  Isn’t it brilliant?  It takes all the guesswork out of which layers may work together when it comes to coats and tops, and the detailing on it is top knotch.  A great addition to any inventory!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – L

Strolling Up the Avenue

I needed a great pair of pants to go with my new top and coat – luckily The Beautiful Ones have got me covered.  I found their booth over at The Avenue event, and much to my delight there were free gifts to be had!  These corduroy pants are perfect for pretending you’re the outdoors type while still looking unfailingly chic.  Join The Avenue group for free, and pick these bad boys up!  There are a bunch of other gifts there too!  Woohoo!

Sizes

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

Now, which way to the hotel?

It’s like Fabia put out this lovely FREE gift hair just for me! This is ‘Tanya’ and the gift hair with attached hat comes with a HUD for five fun streaked red styles. All redhead, all the time! You can see why I liked it. 😉

Feelin’ a little Mad…

about BoHo style, that is! My gorgeous jacket, vest and shirt is one of the prizes for the “Mad Hatter” gacha from !gO! and at just 75L per play… I played more than a few times. I love that in the !gO! gachas the commons are just as fun and desirable as the Rares. And with twenty seven possible prizes to play for, I bet you’ll find one that makes you “go mad”.
