The Truth Is, I Need Some Puppy Therapy!

Puppy Therapy

Hello Fabulouses!  Aren’t these little guys adorable?  Ripley and I stopped today for a picnic lunch on the Bay of Dreams sim, and while we polished off our food, these little stow-aways snuck into our basket.  I guess we will just have to take them home with us!

I Discovered the Truth

When I logged on to SL today after work, I was thrilled to see a notice from the Truth Hair VIP group.  Zoya, the free March gift, sat patiently waiting for me all bundled up in the group notices.  This lovely updo style has whispy tendrils that beautifully frame the face, and a collection of curls pinned up in the back.  You can add on optional bangs, and long front and back sections to change up the hairstyle.  In my photo, I am featuring the bangs and the long section which has escaped the pins to flow down my back.  I am absolutely in love with this loosely gathered updo!  This versatile hairstyle suits both a formal look and the more casual outfit I am sporting today.  To add Zoya to your inventory, you must be a member of the Truth Hair VIP group , which has a 350L join fee, but the one time investment is well worthwhile because each month, members receive a free full fat pack of a new Truth Hair design.

All Tied Up in Knots

My knotted top today is another 1L hunt prize in the What’s Your Category Hunt.  The Alexandra shirt from Barbed Wire Kisses features a mauve colored fabric with a soft sheen.  With rolled back cuffs and a crisp collar, this top is perfect for an afternoon in the park.  The hunt prize package includes mesh for Isis, TMP, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique and Venus as well as mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L.  For a daring look, you can wear this top all on its own, but I chose to pair it with BSassy’s cropped Mix and Match Venice Tank in Rose, which I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It provided complete coverage yet fit snugly under my over shirt.

Looks Like I Need to Stock Up on Ripley Snacks

Our little surprise passengers’ tummies are growling audibly, so Rip and I had better scurry on home and fix up a batch of kibble and a dessert of the pupster’s favorite treats.  I hope his attitude toward sharing has improved since the incident with Baloo the guard bear!  Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Seek and You Will Find

photo_006

Hello there Fabulouses!  When I saw Carson’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}about the What’s Your Category Hunt, I decided to check out the female prizes up for grabs.  Ripley and I teleported over to  Ambient Fashion, and although it took some determination and many trips around the store to locate the hunt icon, the Cassandra shirt was well worth our investment of time and one little linden dollar.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

When I first attempted to locate the small black bag tied with a red ribbon, I just couldn’t find it.  I wandered throughout the store, upstairs and downstairs, and after quite some time, I gave up in frustration.  However, later while looking at the hunt prizes on the preview page, my eyes were drawn over and over to the knotted Cassandra top.  I loved the raspberry and purple tones, and became determined to add the long sleeved shirt to my inventory.  So….I returned to Ambient and searched again.  I’m so glad I did!  The satiny texture of the fabric, the realistic folds, and the dangling ties all combine to make the perfect casual cropped top and, at only 1 little Linden dollar, the price was just right!

What’s Included:

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

That Look in His Eye

As I put the finishing touches on this blog post, a certain canine someone tapped my leg with his paw, and stared longingly at his tracking harness.  I think he is enjoying the challenge of tracking down hunt gifts to share with our readers.  We’ll hit the trail again, and hopefully be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). 🙂

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green – it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them – or a pair in teal – for 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Packa brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The Julia applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! 😀

Once Upon a Fairy Tale

Once Upon a Fairy Tale

Once upon a time…….a fair princess named Kathryn followed her sure-footed canine Prince Ripley on a journey through the lands beyond First Life.  They had many marvelous adventures including rescuing homeless kittens, conquering dust bunnies, and spying a Kraken while sailing across sparkling waters.  Along the way, the fair maiden and her companion kept their eyes peeled for bargains and special items to share with their readers.  On this fair evening, two sweet, new friends lead our adventurers to discover yet another Fabulous Find…

Pretty in Pastel

My outfit tonight features a rose-tinted, high-waist maxi skirt which hugs my curves and drapes softly to a slightly ruffled, ankle-length hem.  Naomi comes in fitmesh in two sizes (XXS – S) and (M-L) as well as a Maitreya version.  In this picture, I am sporting the fitmesh style, even though I am wearing my Maitreya Lara body.  For some reason, the top I chose to wear kept poking through the Maitreya version of the skirt, but it behaves itself with the fitmesh option.  This long skirt is fit for a princess, yet won’t dent the palace coffers at all, since it is a free gift for the Second Life Frees and Offers Group.  Best of all, the group is completely free to join!  All you need to do to add the Naomi skirt to your wardrobe is switch to your SL Frees and Offers group tag, teleport over to the WellMade store, then tap the group gift sign.

Finishing Touches

My baby unicorn friend is gazing up at my Love and Luck Necklace from Kerriki.  I think its subtle sparkle and sheen caught the little one’s fancy.  I can’t say I blame her!  A delicate shade of pink tourmaline, the clover pendant sits suspended from a finely wrought silver chain, just waiting to bring good fortune my way.  With a price tag of only one little linden, I couldn’t pass up a four-leafed lucky charm!  This little gem can be yours with one quick shopping trip to the Marketplace. Who knows, it might even bring you good luck, too!

Off to Explore

Before the alarm clock rouses me from my fairy tale slumber, the pupster and I need to check out some more of the Once Upon a Fairy Tale sim.  Sweet dreams to you, dear readers, and happy shopping!

~ Princess Kathryn (and Sir Ripley)

Blowin’ in the Wind

Blowin' in the Wind
As the breeze tousled my Haruka hair from Argrace and Ripley playfully pounced on some tumbling leaves, I paused, savoring the stormy atmosphere. I snapped this picture and thought back to earlier in the day.  While I was sipping my morning coffee, Ripley had clambered up on my lap and given me *that look*.  As he hung half-on and half-off my lap (silly dog, he still thinks he can fit!), he nosed the group notice from Damoour on my screen.  Sure enough, his instincts led us to another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.  When we arrived at Damoour, we noticed that there are actually four gifts set out.  The group costs 20L to join, but just this skirt alone is worth the joining fee.

Today, I sported Valerie, a sweet mini skirt with a jaunty chain belt and racy circle cut outs in the side.  I paired the skirt with Christi, a strappy top from Cartiera Designs, which has a color-change HUD jam-packed with 28 hues.  Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique (also color-change) and Kosh’s Multiplex pendant rounded out my outfit.  A Marketplace dollarbie first blogged here by Calleja Fairey, this necklace includes an easy-to-use menu that enables you to personalize the initials on the center bead and alter the texture of the cord to coordinate with your outfit.  The dark, edgy feel of my look cried out for a tattoo, and I found this simple Tribal Arm Band from JT Tattoo on The Marketplace for only 10L.  It has appliers for mesh bodies and also can be added on the tattoo layer of classic avatars.

With mission “Fabulous Find” accomplished, Ripley and I journeyed over to the rural Kekeland sim for a late-afternoon stroll on its winding gravel road.  I had to distract him from attempting to herd a rogue flock of sheep on our path, but he happily diverted his attention to some leaves dancing in the wind.  Soon after I captured this photo, the spattering of raindrops forced us to return home before we got caught in a downpour.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

I had such a good time covering the Pink Fusion Hunt that I decided I’d try my luck with the Dangerous Curves Hunt!

Izzie’s, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Greetings!

It’s one of those days where I just want to cozy up in a comfy chair and bury my nose in a great book.  So today I rummaged around my inventory and found all sorts of treasures from my latest shopping excursions.  My Izzie’s Belted Dress is a combination of mesh and non-mesh pieces and the belt has a color change option in the HUD.  This dress came in one of two clearance boxes, FILLED with all sorts of Izzie’s goodies, for only 10L each!  I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is in those boxes!  I see poses, clothing, hand bags, satchels, jewelry and Holiday items…the list goes on and on and only 10L for the whole shebang!  Make sure you pick up both boxes, located in the foyer at the entrance, because they both have different items in them…what treasures to be found!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!My gorgeous Touch of Stone Jewelry set is only one of several FREE jewelry items from Lazuri!  You’ll find some of the FREE (no group required) Lazuri jewelry items at the Main Store on the first floor near the group gifts (250L group join) and more on the second floor!  This Touch of Stone set comes with two different types of Fuschia stone options and metal change options! My absolutely adorable Baby Black Kite is a FREE gift from 8f8 and comes with an option to have it static on your shoulder, rotating around you or rezzed and rotating.

My stunning skin, Hanako T2 Aka,  was a gift from the skin artist behind Adam n Eve (AE), Sachi Vixen.  One of the things I have always loved about AE skins is that  Sachi details each skin from top to bottom by hand…speaking of which…her skins are known for having the best “bottom” in SL! Her skins are truly a work of art…NO templates here…100% original.

The particular skin gifted to me  came with delicious ruby red lips but I opted to use a Light Peachy Lipgloss from Esk-Imo.  The lip gloss is an old gift and no longer available…but you will find FREE eyeliner at the landing point and reasonably priced (150L and under) makeup tattoos in the makeup room. I topped the lipgloss off with Izzie’s Glossy Lips Highlights, from the Marketplace,…NOT free (149L) but ohhhhhhhhhh so worth it…what a difference it makes to the lips!  Yum!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!Love sent me these fabulous Athens (Pink) gacha shoes, from Essenz…she knows I ADORE all things pink!  These shoes are available as a gacha item (75L per play) at the The Comic Fair.  Thank you Love!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

What would a trip to a bookstore be without this cute little [POSH] Book Purse (Alice in Wonderland )for only 10L, from [POSH], on the Marketplace!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Once I had my outfit all sorted out, I headed for a cozy little place called the Novel Cafe.  I found this sweet bookstore/cafe as a result of a wonderful conversation with one of our amazing FabFree readers…Macey.  Macey is the creator behind this charming little bookstore/cafe and has done a lovely job at making a comfy place to curl up with a good book and a latte.  Be sure to venture out beyond the Bookstore/Cafe…there are other things to also discover and explore there!  Thank you for the tour and the fabulous conversation Macey…it was a pleasure to meet you! ❤

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤

Sleek and stylish in Overhigh FREE Group Gift and Black Collection!

Greetings!

I have five spectacular outfits to show from the Overhigh Black Collection and a FREE Group Gift (FREE to join)!  Overhigh specializes in sophisticated, modern style with a global feel, and you can clearly see it in these pieces.

The first item I want to show you is the fabulous little black dress …simply called Overhigh Gift – 001.  This adorable dress is perfect as is or it can serve as a base piece to add your own creative touch to it with belts, boot, tights, or these amazing legwarmers; previously featured by Pru HERE.  The legwarmers are a recent release, from Maitreya, as a FREE group gift (FREE to join).  These legwarmers come with a HUD where you can choose things like leather or suede and a ton of color options!

My Verania necklace is also a FREE group gift (FREE to join) from Pure Poison and previously shown by Love HERE.  My Maria hair was shown previously by Tiana HERE and is  from Tukinowaguma.   Maria is a FREE group gift (FREE to join)…as a group member of Tukinowaguma you will also find a wall full of shoes and hair FREE!
Over High Black Collection and Group GiftNext on my list is an outfit I put together with three pieces from the Overhigh Black Collection.  ALL of the individual pieces in this outfit, and the dresses that follow, are NOT free but they are amazingly priced at only 50L each! No group join required for the sale price.

The lace top, labeled #04 in the collection, is mesh and does not require an alpha to wear, the sweet cuffed shorts are labeled #03 in the collection and the fabulously cool fuzzy jacket is labeled #07 in the collection.  Each piece is sold separately for 50L and can be located on the Overhigh Black Collection rack; located to your left as you enter the store.

Next up in the Overhigh Black Collection is this all-in-one collared top and patterned skirt…labeled #08.  I love the ease of the all-in-one style with the look of separate pieces and perfectly priced at just 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

Next in the Overhigh collection is a gorgeous gown, labeled #02, with a one shoulder asymmetric cut across the bodice and a scandalous side slit that goes on forever!  I absolutely love how simple, elegant and sexy this dress is…full of taste and sophistication…and ONLY 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

The final piece, in the Overhigh Black Collection, is a stunning ballgown with a modern edge.  This gown, labeled #01, has a sleek feel with the horizontal stripes that alternate opaque and sheer panels…and the full flourish of the ballroom skirt.  This gown is an understated knockout…sure to turn heads when you enter the room…and an absolute steal at only 50L!
