Lucky Enough

Lucky Enough

Ahh to be lucky enough to live near the beach……sounds like heaven to me.  Unfortunately there’s not a beach within many, many miles of where I live in RL, so thank goodness for SL!  Today Rip and I explored the Voodoo sim and found a cute strip of beach there perfect for some summer relaxation.  The buildings are colorful and include beachside bars, a coffee house with yummy looking pastries, and even a seafood stand where the pupster and I paused to snap a photo.

Casual Summer Cutie

In my last post here, I told you about a sweet outfit that I picked up over at Fatal Fashion.  Everything I’m wearing today, from head to toe is included in another free gift from the same shop, called Outfit 007.  I say from head to toe, but when I was walking in the sand, I did slip off my heels in my main picture, but I will include a second shot below so you can see what they look like.  I just love this raspberry colored cropped top!  Although you can’t see it from the angle in my photo, there is a lovely laced detail on the sides that is super adorable.  It features an asymmetrical hemline and realistic looking folds in the fabric.  Ideal for warm summer days, the worn denim mini shorts have an unbuttoned fly and slender pockets in the front for tucking in small essentials.  Also included, the chunky necklace and golden bracelet add the perfect finishing touches.  To scoop up this summertime staple, you need to be a member of the Fit Mesh Fanatics Group, but since it’s free to join, you can add a complete look to your wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s a look at the Johan heels which are also included in the gift box.  Enjoy!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

All Dolled Up For Date Night

Hello August

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a complete outfit that I picked up as a free group gift, just for being a member of The Third Life group.  The generous designer over at Fatal Fashion has put all the pieces you need including golden jewelry, a sizzling mini dress, and delicate heels into one gift box.  With just a quick stop at the shop, you’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

You’ve Got the Look

The Monna Dress features a back that dips down low so the starlight can caress your skin, and a neckline designed to flaunt your curves while keeping you covered in all the right places.  The texture on the dress is well done, and contains realistic folds and subtle highlights.  The hemline of this mini is quite high, so you might want to don a pair of panties or make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body.  Slip on the strappy heels, the chunky Midna Gold necklace, and even some upper arm bracelets (not shown) for the perfect finishing touches (all are included), and all eyes will be on you.  Since the Third Life Group costs only 10L to join, this free group gift will have you all dolled up for a very budget friendly price.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy shopping!

Oh How You Sparkle

Full of Stars

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday (or what’s left of it, anyway, lol).   I had such a busy day in RL that the hours just flew by.  Isn’t it funny that that never happens when you are in the middle of a dental appointment?  It’s just when I want time to slow down that it seems to whiz by.  That sure is the case when I am shopping and exploring in SL, especially when I find wardrobe essentials for free like this star spangled skater skirt.

Oh How You Shine

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, I was able to scoop up the 4th of July Skater Skirt from Ecce Bellus completely for free.  With a bright waistband, navy and red stars scattered across a snow white background, and a generous cut, this adorable number is sure to lift your spirits.  Since the gift package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for you.  I chose to keep my look clean and bright by pairing my skirt with a white top, but I also tried red and navy shirts, and was quite pleased with those results as well.   To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, look for the Fab Free logo on the wall, click the vendor, then get ready to shine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • E Body
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!

Feeling a Bit Foxy

Foxy

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After I saw Serena’s posts {here} and {here} and Pru’s post {here} about their discoveries on The Beached Bunny Hunt, I dusted off Ripley’s tracking harness, and we hit the trail.  Our first stop was over at Ink Blots, and it didn’t take the pupster long to sniff out a super cute cropped top that I am excited to share with you.

A Sweet Summer Top 

The knotted Fern top from Ink Blots features a botanical print in soft shades of green and teal splashed across a white background.  I really like its strapless design and the way the ties dangle down in front.  The back portion dips down low to allow your shoulders to catch some rays, which makes it ideal for warm sunshiney days.  I chose to pair the top with some worn denim shorts, but I think it would also look fantastic with a skirt for a dressier outfit.   To pick up this little jewel for yourself, all you have to do is travel to the shop and locate the hunt object, which is a beach sand pail.  The prizes in The Beached Bunny Hunt cost just 1 Linden dollar each, so they are quite budget friendly!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope your work week is off to a fantastic start.  I wanted to pop in with a quick post sharing a cute and colorful cropped top that I picked up for free.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Rainbow of Colors

My sleeveless top features a high neckline and a hem that falls just above the midsection, which makes it just perfect for summer.  The bold stripes of color are a bright and cheerful reminder that June is Pride Month, a time to promote acceptance of others.  According to bustle.com, the month of June is a time to “envision a future where everyone is respected and accepted.”  I’m happy to show my support for the community by wearing the Ami Crop Top Pride Flag Print shirt, which the generous designer is offering as a gift over at Stories & Co.  The free package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • VTech

Ripley and I are off to do some housework.   Well, actually, I think Ripley is planning to laze around and watch me vacuum up all of the dog hair he has scattered around, but at least I will have company while I do so ;).  There is a reason why German Shepherds are sometimes referred to as “German Shedders.” Until next time, happy shopping!

Growing My Awareness

Rockin' the Polka Dots

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy April!  It’s always so exciting to have a new month roll around, so my pal Ripley and I can dust off his tracking harness and hit the trail.  My outfit today is from an April hunt that is not only fun, but also works to raise awareness about Autism, which affects 1 in 50 children.  I am so happy to do my part to support MixMatchMissy with this endeavor.  Her goal with this hunt is to encourage people to “pay it forward by thinking of how you can assist at least one person with autism into feeling safe, included, and valued.”  If you’d like to learn more about Autism or the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, please take a moment to visit MixMatchMissy’s blog post about the topic.

Rockin’ the Polka Dots

This adorable crimson frock with white polka dots from Thirteen is just simply adorable!  I love, love, love the cut out section in the front that allows for a peek at your midsection, and the high cut sides.  Playful spaghetti straps and a back that dips just below your shoulder blades round out the look.  Its eye catching color combination is sure to raise your spirits.  The prize package includes versions for mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can add this fun dress to your spring wardrobe completely for free once you locate the hunt object concealed within the shop.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

This hunt runs until the end of April, and contains lots of beautiful gifts.  Many of them are free, and some cost 1 Linden dollar, but are well worth the teensy cost.  The pupster and I are going to continue on with the hunt, and look forward to sharing some more Fabulous Finds with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Happiness and Prosperity

Pausing in the Meadow

Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  I can’t think of a better way to start the day than a stroll in a meadow sprinkled with wildflowers.  Too bad I don’t have access to something like this in RL!  Thankfully, Ripley and I stumbled across this little slice of heaven on the Cherishville sim.  Isn’t it just lovely?

Fortune Will Smile on You

I picked up this gorgeous strapless dress as a free Chinese New Year group gift (hence the Chinese New Year greetings) over at Zenith Fashion.  With rich, gold accents, an asymmetrical hemline, and an elegant floral textured fabric, this frock will hug your curves.  I especially love the diamond shaped accent piece that drapes down the thigh.  The generous designer included five color options (blue, purple, red, rose and white) all designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body, plus a texture change faux fur stole (5 selections), which I opted not to wear for my photo.  This has got to be one of my favorite recent additions to my inventory, and the best part is it was completely free!  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Zenith Fashion group, however, joining the group is also free.  Along with this lovely outfit, you can still collect past group gifts as well.

As much as I have enjoyed my interlude with the friendly horses in this tranquil environment, it’s time to drag myself back to reality, and get ready for work.  At least I only have today and tomorrow before I get some more time off.  This is definitely one sim that I’ve landmarked for return visits.  If you get a chance, I’d highly recommend checking it out.  Until next time, happy shopping!

“Adda” Boy, You Found My Heart!

Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly tonight to share a budget-friendly hunt gift with you.  Le’La Design is hosting a Valentine’s Day Hunt that runs until February 28th.  Scattered throughout the store are small red hearts, which are priced at just 5L each.  I dusted off the pupster’s tracking harness, and sure enough, his talented nose didn’t let me down!  Almost before I knew it, I was unboxing the bounty.  My crimson frock is one of the ten hunt prizes concealed in the shop.  The Adda Dress features an asymmetrical hemline and a one shoulder bodice style (with my hair style you can’t really see my bare right shoulder) that is really quite fun.  A wide, sequined sash emphasizes your waistline, and the skirt is generously cut for freedom of movement.  Overall, it’s a really pretty, feminine style dress that will become a warm weather favorite of mine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

With Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

A Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I finished unpacking our prizes from the Pixies of Snow Hunt (you can read more about our adventure {HERE}), and discovered this exotic Neva skin from Stargazer Creations.  With cool blue and lavender tones swirled across a lighter blue base, this fantasy-themed skin would be ideal for role play.  I really was impressed by the quality of this free skin, and although it’s not my typical SL look, I really wanted to feature it in a blog post.  The prize box includes a skin layer for classic avatars and an Omega Advanced Applier, which allowed me to easily add the skin to both my Maitreya Lara body and Catwa head.  My picture really doesn’t do justice to Neva’s gorgeous tones and swirls of colors.  If you are planning to do some magical role play, and would like a free skin to start you on your journey, this free hunt gift from Stargazer Creations might be just what you need!  Ripley and I were able to complete the hunt in under an hour, so it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar and just a slight investment of time.

We’re off to find someone in need of a sprinkling of pixie dust.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
