Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

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

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

Cherry Chapstick

Cherry Chapstick
Good morning Fabulous Readers!!  Only one flavour would do on these lips today – Cherry chapstick!

OK, any flavour would have done…

Because… this Betty Outfit that I am wearing today that includes the dotty blouse and high waisted shorts actually comes with a texture change HUD with five different colour options.  You can be whatever flavour you want! What’s even better…  is that this outfit by NyDesigns is a free group gift with a free group join!

Sizes Included:

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

The Perfect Shoes

After I had this outfit on, I remembered that N-Core has their Isla Wedges in a white floral print as a free group gift at Tres Chic this round.  These dishy corked shoes will be great with so many of my outfits this summer that I’ll be keeping these beauties handy!  Compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and N-Core feet – these shoes will fit just about everyone!

The Tres Chic inworld group is free to join, and as previously mentioned on FabFree…  There is no shortage of free gifts there!

A Moment of Peace

Peace

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I have family arriving from out of town tonight, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a budget friendly hunt find that I picked up for just one Linden dollar.  Since Stan had such good luck at the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt, I decided to give it a go myself, and came away with the Gloria outfit from Sweet E’s Designs.  With its floral skirt and coordinating short sleeve top, this outfit had me instantly ready for summery weather.  The shirt features a scoop-style neckline adorned with a narrow string tied in a bow.  The mini skirt, with its column of four buttons and four pockets, rides low on your hips and hugs your curves.  Since the outfit contains both classic and mesh avatar versions, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for you.  To pick up this complete outfit for yourself, teleport over to the store and search for the puzzle piece hidden in the store.  The hunt sign out front has a hint giver, which I found pretty handy.  Since the hunt concludes on June 3rd, you still have plenty of time left.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

After my peaceful moment at Butterfly Beach, it’s time to round up Ripley, and head off to the airport.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

What kind of every day magic do you love?

Repping the T Dot

Repping the TDot

I am totally repping my home town of Toronto in this t-shirt today – you know, Drake lyrics on my shirt and all that jazz!  Toronto is a concrete jungle of greyness and insanity at times, but right now the trees are in bloom, the sun is shining and I’m ready to take it all in…but maybe a nap first? Good thing this exceedingly comfortable pool table just happened to be here…

Mom’s Plan

I got my Drake-lyric adorned shirt today at High V, where they put out a gift for mother’s day for both males and females, and it’s entirely free.  It’s a great little crop top for days where you just kinda want to laze around, while also showing off your midriff!  No group join required, just a click!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Slouch On

I found a pair of sweatpants that work really nicely with my t-shirt at Atik.  I like the striking colour combination of lime green and purple, as well as the slouchy fit of the pants.  You can grab your own pair by joining the group for free (make sure you end up in Atik , look to your left from the landing point – took me a while to find it myself!)

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Isis
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL Fitmesh with an Alpha Layer

Oh, and just so everyone knows, I refuse to call Toronto “The 6ix” because that’s just lame.  It’s T.O., because I’m old school like that.  Ahem.

Somewhere in Lost Lagoon

Lost Lagoon

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in quickly on this Monday evening to share a hunt prize that I scooped up along the Peace by Peace Hunt 2 path.  The package includes the complete outfit (minus flip flops and necklace), all for just 1L.  That makes it a super thrifty Fabulous Find!  Ladies, don’t despair, there is a female hunt gift hidden for you in the shop, too!

Stripes and Solids

With a t-shirt (I know, I know I didn’t wear it for my picture), a long sleeved button down shirt, and khaki colored shorts, I’m ready for just about any weather summer will direct my way.  My olive green top features gleaming buttons, shoulder straps, and solid pockets.  The knee length shorts include coordinated striped cuffs and a handy belt.  Since it was a warm spring day when I snapped my photo, I opted not to wear the white t-shirt that the designer thoughtfully tucked inside the box.  With three fitmesh versions, as well as classic mesh included in the package, it was easy to find the right fit for my Belleza Jake body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to Dark Water Designs and locate the puzzle piece concealed within.  Once you do, pay one Linden dollar, and this look is all yours!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh version 1, 2 and 3 (with and without the t-shirt)
  • Classic mesh in S, M, L (with and without the t-shirt)
  • Shorts in 4 sizes
  • Alpha layer for shirts (with and without t-shirt)
  • Alpha layer for shorts

I’m off to see what other items I can discover along the hunt trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Pineapple of my Eye

Pineapple of my Eye

Are you ready to bulk up your wardrobe?  It’s always important to have a few basics to throw on – sometimes they make an outfit!  Well, Alaskametro and the Free Dove have teamed up to create a little fun free hunt so that you can have your own capsule wardrobe full of super awesome items!

High and Low

I went over to Alaskametro’s mainstore and searched the area for the hunt prizes which are found in shopping bags peppered around the shop.  Two of the prizes I found are this long tank top (which comes with 3 different textures) and these moto leggings that I think are super versatile.  You could mix and match all the prizes from this hunt and end up with some really stellar looks.  I’ve put the store ad below so you can see what there is to be had.  You will find half of the prizes at Alaskametro, and half of them at The Free Dove.  Best of all, it’s all free!

  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • XS – M with an Alpha Layer
