Look Out Any Window

Look Out Any Window

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the Ricielli Halloween Hunt, and discovered another gorgeous dress for only 15L.  The EOS II dress features a delicate lace trim all along the neckline, which adds a soft feminine appeal.  The deep midnight texture has a subtle sheen to it that highlights the natural folds in the skirt and the criss-crossed tie at the waistline.  This frock fits beautifully, and is an amazing bargain!  With elegant accessories, it is perfect for a date night, but is also just as wonderful for every day wear.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Original

I’m not sure how long the Halloween Hunt will continue at Ricielli’s, so if you like this dress as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop as soon as possible.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Which Path Will You Choose?

Down a Gravel Road

Happy Friday Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am ready for a weekend!  With Halloween and the morning-after effects of too much sugar among my co-workers (not so much for me, but I do admit to snacking on a few pieces here and there), this has been a challenging work week, and I’m glad to see the end of the week and the end of October.  One of the great things about a new month starting is a crop of new hunts to check out.  The pupster and I tried our luck on the Dirty Little Secret Hunt, and came away with a darling mini dress.

Cherri Blossoms

My new frock from Trashed features a daring neckline that plunges deeply to offer a sexy peek at my belly button.  I fell in love with its cherry blossom print as soon as I laid eyes on it.  This little number hugged my every curve and fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  Narrow shoulder straps looped behind my neck and allowed my shoulders to feel the caress of the sun.   The hunt package includes fits for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fit mesh version (with alpha layer) for classic avatars.  For just 50L and a little bit of your time searching around, you can scoop up this gorgeous mini dress for your own collection.

Versions Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • eBody
  • Physique
  • Fit mesh (includes alpha layer)

The Dirty Little Secret Hunt runs through November 25th, so you have plenty of time to locate the hunt icon, which is a black key adorned with a red ribbon.  There are two trails to follow on this hunt – a 1L path and the 50L one that Ripley and I set off down.  Honestly, there are lovely items on BOTH paths, so if you have time this weekend, I’d recommend checking out this hunt. (Just a warning, there are some adult items included in the hunt).

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Bo Peep

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I spent a lovely afternoon on the NorderNey sim, and even made a few new friends along the way.  They graciously agreed to pose for my picture with me.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Say Yes to the Dress

My gorgeous, antique white frock is a free gift from Lomomo.   With plenty of ruffles and a bow, this dress features frothy lace over a solid sheath underneath.  A belted high waistline draws the eye upward, while the skirt cascades down in a beautifully textured layer.  I love the way the over skirt forms the shape of an inverted “V” trimmed with ribbon.  Best of all, the Lomomo group is completely free to join, so this charming dress won’t cost you a single Linden dollar!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s another view so you can get a glimpse of the front side of my new lace dress:

Enticing Polka Dots Paired with Spooktacular Shoes

 

Spooktacular Polka Dots

Greetings, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After recovering from his traumatic experience at the V.E.T. last week, Ripley quickly bounced back and soon headed off, nose to the ground.  With nary a step off target, he led me directly to Entice and didn’t stop until he sat in front of the Midnight Mania board.  After looking up at the polka dot dress, then back at me, Ripley whined, then tapped the board with his paw.  I bet you know by now, I’ve learned it’s best to follow my pup where ever he takes me.  Sure enough, Rip’s intuition was right on the money.  When I logged in to SL the next day, I saw the inventory offer from Entice and set straight to opening the box and pulling out the Side to Side dress.

With its bright, circular pops of color splashed across a black background, and a red belt to accentuate the waist, this cheery dress offers a fun addition to your SL wardrobe and won’t put even the slightest ding in your budget.  The Midnight Mania board does require you to join the Entice group, but it’s free to join, and there are a bunch of lucky boards and gifts just waiting for members to claim.  On our way out, Ripley befriended this adorable Corgie in a lobster outfit and I had to take a quick snapshot of the little guy.  Isn’t he cute?

Cute Corgie

In search of the perfect accessories, the pupster and I journeyed over to Cae, one of my favorite jewelry stores.  As we arrived, I noticed the glowing Gacha Guardian Rune Stone right away.  Cae has a free charm bracelet set out and you can try your luck on the Gacha board for a plethora of Trick or Treat charms for 75L a turn.  From an adorable pumpkin, a spooky ghost, a witch hat, a spider, and my favorite, the silver cat (well, my name is Kat :P), these charms all magically attach to the free bracelet with the included HUD.  You can opt to wear Cae’s bracelet as a simple chain, snap on a single charm, or add as many as you like.  Now, I have to admit, Gacha machines are my nemesis and Ripley’s eyes became a bit worried as I was determined to get…. that….cat….charm.  It didn’t take long, though, and I soon had a jingly charm bracelet to add a Halloween theme to my outfit.

Charmed

All that was left was a cute pair of shoes.  Ripley and I had read Astrid’s post here about the Spooktacular Goth Hunt over at Swank Events, and decided to check it out.  After a short time of searching, we discovered the black rose containing the free prize from Ghostyss, which is this gorgeous pair of Carrie heels for slink high feet.  I particularly like the way these sweet black shoes have a thin cord that wraps around your ankles and ties in an adorable bow on the back.  There are numerous black roses scattered around the Swank Events show room, in designer’s booths and cleverly hidden all around, so look everywhere and you will discover LOTS of prizes, all set for sale at 0L.  The hunt runs until October 31st.

Now, Ripley must have some Blood Hound coursing through his veins, because after we finished at Spooktacular, he was off and running toward another hunt, with me scrambling to keep up with his racing paws.  This time, he led me to LaBoheme for the Halloween Hunt, which is a 1L hunt that runs through November 2nd.  All you have to do is locate the glowing jack o’lantern cleverly concealed in the store and soon you’ll have two sets of nail polish for Slink, Omega and Maitreya.  I’m wearing the “Dark Passion” polish (this shade is one of the ten colors in the HUD) for this outfit, but in the hunt prize, you also get a spooky Catacomb polish as well).

A trip to Black Basalt Beach was a perfect way to end the day.  Ripley and I explored the lovely grounds, had fun playing fetch and followed some shy deer across a log suspended over a gully.  There are so many sights to see at this beautiful sim.  If you have free time and love to visit SL locations, I encourage you to check it out.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

A Second Chapter

Snapshot_005

Hi Fabulouses!  Guess who else is celebrating an anniversary?  When it rains – it pours… and it’s raining free group gifts in celebration of their second anniversary over at this round of The Chapter Four!  I am showing you six of them in this post, but there are a good 25 – 30 of them – and the group is free to join!

I’ll start with the goodies I am wearing tonight – At The Chapter Four as free group gifts you can find the LpD Judy Top in white which comes in several mesh sizes as well as the Fishy Strawberry Moto Jeggings.  These Jeggings come in normal sizes and curvy sizes – plus you get black and blue!  The Bday Octopulpo friend is wearable and is the gift you can pick up that is sponsored by Moon Amore.

Now moving onto the set I have built…  The cute little rezzable Ferret in a hoodie is by Birdy and if you love this lil guy, you can play for other versions in their gacha machine.  The bag he is holding is the Eco Bag by M.Birdie Story and is holdable for avatars, but I thought he looked cute wearing it instead lol.  The double pillow with the sweet little bird on it is the gift by Serenity Style.

If you are an inworld member of the Sway’s group (250L to join), you can pick up the Seat Cushions in a folklore print along with the table and table accessories for free!  This is located at their mainstore.

Just two more pieces to tell you about… and these are not gifts, but are very affordable!  I picked up the Wannabe Boho Petal Mirror and Rug in an instore gacha machine at the Junk mainstore at 50L per play and if you love eclectic boho decorating you are going to love this set!

I’m off to open up more boxes – this is just like Christmas all over again! Enjoy your night 🙂

Kirei at The Wash Cart Sale

I thought I would do something a little different in todays post about The Wash Cart Sale. I am showing you a couple of the items from the Kirei cart and the names of their dresses inspired me to go searching in the dark depths of the inventory Library that is part of everyones inventory to find the perfect thing. If you are of a nervous disposition you may not like the pictures that follow.. hey I don’t like them and Im the one in them! Zombies noooooo! Where is Rick when you need him?

There are several colours of the Shot Through Dress on the Kirei cart. The colour above is called Infected, While the colour below is called Ghoul. The Sadie Zombie mesh avatar is free and can be found already in your inventory. It also comes with a male version called Ian. These are part of the new wave of sign up avatars that you can choose from when you create a new account with Second Life.

I Want To Take A Breath That’s True

Hello dear readers! We are past the hump in another week and I hope the days are being kind to you.. and evenings too! Today I am showing a few discounted items and another gift from the FabFree 7th Birthday Cupcake Hunt!

The Arcade Gacha is still going strong and today I am wearing the Fade Into You hair by ClawTooth which comes in lots of colours, plus a rare version with hats which is really adorable. I wasnt lucky enough to get the rares but I love the version without the hat just as much! The adorable Gigi bag is by The Sugar Garden and is from their gacha there also. It is so so cute and I adore that you can change the colour of the lace edging to suit your mood – or remove it completely!

Untitled

The Meri Two Tone Dress by M&M Female Fashion can be found at the Nice To Be event that starts a new round today. This is a pack of two dresses, one in print as shown and another in plain black. The Lita Platforms For SLink High Feet are by Emporium and are also at the Nice to Be event. You can find these in the Gacha there in a range of colours. The ones I am wearing are the Rare version which comes with a colour change HUD!

Lastly here is a close up of the Black Jewelry Necklace by Ozlemimsinn Brahm and is one of the Free gifts found in one of the 50 cupcakes for the Birthday Hunt at the FabFree HQ! It also comes with earrings but with my hair it was difficult to see them.

Falling in Summer

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulous readers 🙂  I have some sweet freebies and deals to share with you tonight… at least… I am hoping I can get them blogged before ‘tonight’ is over!  Where I live in RL, it is sort of that season in between summer and autumn now…  a little bit chilly, but warming up in the afternoons and I think I have put together an outfit perfect for a day like today!  I am not quite ready to give up my sandals yet :/

The Caren Belted Blouse can be found at FA Creations as the latest free group gift (free to join), and I have paired it up with the Ricielli  Fitted Highwaisted Jeans that you can find as a World Cup Hunt Prize at the Ricielli Mainstore for 15L.  I have previously shown you the Arabia group gift necklace at LEONARD (80L to join) but it is still available if you missed it 😉

I am in love with the latest Damselfly hair release, Koko.  This long style that includes the decorative feather clip will be available at the new round of We ❤ Roleplay that begins tomorrow (9/4/14) and will be priced at 25% off!  Just one more sleep and you can pick this style up!

I’ll Be The Mad And The Bad And The Dangerous

Hi everyone, here is another look at some of the great freebies and dollarbies you can find at The Black Fashion Fair! There’s still quite a few to go through!

Im always looking for a great pair of skinny pants and I just know that the Leather Stripe Leggings by Kitje Cherie are going to become a staple part of my wardrobe as they will look great dressed up or down. I really love the SayIt Tank by The Little Bat, particularly as you can use the HUD included to choose from several different slogans to appear on the front! I picked the “Bad Witch” slogan for today but I promise Im a good little witch really ~smiles sweetly~

If you are looking for a sexy little black dress then you have certainly come to the right place! The Night Out Dress by Sassy is the perfect amount of sweet and sexy and is bound to get you noticed!

Another really cute dress that can be found is the Summer Comes Dress by Bubblegoth. Perfect for the little goth girl who wants to sneak out and get a little bit of sunshine.. but not too much!

Here is a close up of the jewelry I am wearing in the other pictures. The delicate beads on the Stygian Necklace by MV are so pretty and the pendant is quite a close match to the one on the Venice Bracelet by Shine by ZD.

The Third Eye Chakra Ring by ZoZ and can be found at the Totally Top Shelf event. Pru already showed you this ring in this blog post here. The Linka skin by Essences is also available there. Here you can see how it looks without the smokey make up layer I was wearing in the other post!
