Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

Wonderland

Wonderland

Down the rabbit hole…

This week I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole, attended a wild tea party and smoked a hookah with a caterpillar. I thought I’d show you some items I found before I get summoned for a round of croquet. I found three gifts at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS  that I’d like to share with you. First off, I found a gift for FitMesh Fanatics to celebrate 15K members.  The Male Shirt is comes in either v-neck or u-neck. The Fitmesh Fanatics group is FREE to join.

Off with his … Clogs?

The other two gifts come bundled in one box and for just 1L. Both the Male Shorts and the Green Male Clogs can be found in the Summer Hunt gift located somewhere in AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS. Any time I can find clogs to wear, I do just to annoy her. She says it is not fashionable to wear them, but I think they are comfy.

Ok, I’m out for a bit. Until next time…

Carson

My Dog Knows Best

Snapshot_006

Hello there Fabulouses :).  There are so many perks about the longer days that come with summer, but one little draw back is that my little dog likes to get up with the birds…  Sometimes as early as 4:30 now.  He shakes his collar at me, stares at my face, itches, twitches and grumbles at me…  Whatever it takes to get me to take him out!   After I am up, I suppose I appreciate the early rise because it is beautiful out most days, and it’s still so quiet and calm.  Maybe he does know best!

In The Meadow

Today I am wearing the Meadow Outfit by RnR Swag that you can pick up as a free group gift.  This outfit includes the ENTIRE outfit, even the shoes and jewelry.  Want some even better news?  This group is free to join!

Escaping Mos Eisley

Kessel Run

Clearing the path…

They are paying me… EXTREMELY WELL to get them off this rock. I didn’t realize the Empire was looking for them. If I can just make it to the Falcon and take off, they will never catch me. After all,  I did make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.

Stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder

“Who’s scruffy-looking?” My look today is a FREE gift by Destiny’s Designs for the Little Mos Eisley Role-Play sim. The Kessel Run Male Outfit is FREE to one and all who visit the sim. The outfit contains many pieces, including a jacket w/ shirt, pants, scarf, boots, blaster holster and a blaster to hold that I’m showing. That’s quite a bit, but that’s not all. Also included but not shown is a full system avatar with a shape, skin, hair and eyes. That sure is a nice gift, but what about the ladies? Don’t get your hair buns in a bunch, there is a FREE matching avatar and outfit for the women as well. Take time to look around the sim, you might run into a familiar face or two.

Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Summerpalooza @ Sn@tch

snatchfish1
Well… It looks like the rain is finally going to force me off of the beach today, but before I go – I am going to enjoy the refreshing rain, because after three hot days at the beach even that feels fantastic!

A Change In The Weather, A Change In Clothes

I’ve changed out of my swim suit to put some clothes on now that the rain has forced me out of the water.  Sn@tch was kind enough to dress me up for free today.  In fact, I think they will be dressing me up for free all summer, because this week the 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch is a 26 piece Summerpalooza Grab Bag Set that includes a ton of summer clothing essentials, shoes and accessories.  You can see me displaying the following:

  • #22:  Trinka Jean Shorts Omega Applier
  • #24:  Trinka Crochet Halter Top Omega Applier (white, pink and blue available!)

You will need to use a 7Seas Casual Fishing Rod, however no bait is required and you can use that one time purchase over and over for future prizes.

Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

Looking Back…

It seems I have been thinking a lot about the past lately. Some good times, some bad, some too crazy to believe it really happened. And yes, I can remember when gas pumps were painted that ugly red rust color and when gas was 44 cents a gallon. And I do remember the summer of sixty- nine, just barely. Even though I’m looking back, I still plan on moving forward and making new memories, hopefully none as bizarre as a few I’ve had lately…

But if I’d only known…

Today I have a few gifts  that will cost you nothing to pick up. By joining the FREE group at Fe Style, you can get thKing 2e King69 White T-Shirt for FREE. The shirt comes in S-L and a also fitted size. This month’s FREE group gift at Prey is the Men’s Denim Shorts. These shorts come in classic sizes XS-XL.  The Prey group is also FREE to join. I’m also wearing the Black Mesh Sports Cap from Adriatic Line that I previously mentioned [HERE] and my go to TopGun Retro Glasses, a group gift at A&D Clothing. Today I am also wearing a a FREE gift, no group needed, from Chop ZueyThe 4 Star Generals Mens Bracelet in Platinum can be picked up in the middle of the store. (Don’t be confused with the group gift version that also contains a gold bracelet. ) The bracelet comes in two versions, the all platinum and the gold star platinum style. You can click on the photo to get a better look.

 

Until my next sporadic post…

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/09/2017 – Costarlos

Costarlos Exterior
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Costarlos. Yep, a menswear designer! You may be thinking this exterior shot of Costarlos looks somewhat familiar. Well that is because the Costarlos shop shares a location with BlackRose. The shops sit across a brick street from each other. I really like this shopping experience because it begins in such a pretty setting. You can even rez a bike for free and enjoy the scenery. As I’ve mentioned, Costarlos is mesh menswear designer. The style is what I would call classic, with a little bit of preppiness (that’s not a word but you get the idea!) and a little bit hipster. You’ll find everything from sports coats to graphic tees. There are even a few accessories upstairs along with a few cool looking flannels that I couldn’t help but notice.
Costarlos Offers & Gifts
The shop is clean and easy to navigate. You’ll notice a purple Fifty-Five Thursday kiosk just as you enter the shop, and three items on the wall that are all priced at 55 lindens currently. I don’t know how long these offers will be available, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like. To the left of the staircase you’ll find the FREE Costarlos Group Gifts and the exclusive Fab Free Group gift. The Costarlos group is FREE to join, as is the Fabulously Free in SL group. Carson showed the Fab Free exclusive gift in his post “Bike Break“.  You can also check out some of Carson’s other posts featuring the still available Costarlos group gifts and offers here, here, and here. Happy Shopping Fab Free!
