A little warmth

A little warmth

 

It’s starting to get cool in the mornings, a sure sign of Autumns arrival. Plus, just about everywhere, pumpkins and ghosts and those enormous bags of candy in the stores. I have to admit I am having a great time finding, and sampling, the bags Juli thinks she’s hidden around the house.

Speaking of finding treats, you will be hunting down a piece of candy for the Boo! Bunny Hunt to get your treat. This is the men’s gift from Ink Blots and it’s just one Linden plus some hunting. The warm jacket and sweater come as one convenient piece making dressing easy and quick. The details are of good quality and move well once it’s on. Something a lot of men’s wear struggles with. The Boo! Bunny Hunt runs until October 31rst so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL

Hurry up and wait

Hurry up and wait

Why do I always end up waiting? Usually I’m waiting on Juli. This time is no different. She told me… ordered me to hurry up and go find something appropriate for Halloween so of course I did… now I’m just cooling my heels till she gets dressed.  I may be here for a while.

Well, Bats

At least I was able to find something “Halloween – y” for the wait. And got it on the cheap. This is the ‘Bat Shirt’ from Dragonmoon Designs. And it was just 1L as part of the Monster Mash Hunt. There are quite a few men’s prizes on this Hunt so don’t miss it.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic 
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh Sizes – XS – XL

Hello Fab Free’rs! I found some hot freebies waiting at the Sense event and I’m super excited to share them with you. Both the dress and the necklace are free group gifts by Alter at the Sense event. I can’t say for certain if the two were made to go together or it’s just a happy coincidence. Either way, I think they make an awesome pair. Keep reading and I’ll explain exactly how to get both items for free.

The Dress – Not only is this sexy little red dress free, it’s fitted for just about everyone. It comes in quite a few mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. You’ll find the “Vixen” dress by Alter at the Sense event. Toward the back of the event there is a row of several group gifts, this dress is a free gift for members of the Mejora tu Apariencia or MTA group. The MTA group is free to join. Simply join the group then click the gift box while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Ebody, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Necklace – Like the dress, this “Vianney” necklace is a free group gift at the Sense event. For this gift you’ll need to be wearing the Sense group tag. The Sense group is also free to join. Also, the necklace has resize scripts for easy fitting.

P.S. Though not shown, I thought it would be good to mention, there’s also a free men’s gift by Alter for the Sense group at the Sense event. It’s a complete outfit with shirt, pants, and shoes. The outfit is called “Owen”, and it happens to be red and black which would match the dress perfectly.

Here are the details!

Hi Fab Free! I’m back with some beautiful landscape/scenery finds from Simply Shelby. The setting in the above photograph is almost entirely made up of either one of the 30 Linden Saturday items at Simply Shelby or the equally awesome and completely free April group gift also at Simply Shelby. The only reason I say “almost” is because that small patch of green grass is not included. Keep reading for all the details about each fabulous offer at Simply Shelby.

30L SaturdaySimply Shelby has several offers for today’s 30L Saturday items. Generally speaking, I believe Simply Shelby does leave these items up until the following Saturday, however I wouldn’t guarantee that, so do not miss these just in case! I picked up her Druid’s Cave both because I love it, and of course because I really wanted to share it with you! This set includes the cave, with the added vines, candles, the little crystals and mushrooms, along with the Druid Priest, the alter, and an additional vine. The Druid Priest, the alter, and the vine are all copy, so you can rez out as many as you like, or leave them out all together. The cave is copy as well. No group is needed for this awesome set, just teleport to Simply Shelby and run over to the “Sales” building where you can purchase this set for just 30 linden along with several other fantastic items.


Simply Shelby Mystical Druid Cave

April Group Gift – The free April group gift at Simply Shelby is this lovely maple tree with surrounding floral landscape, rocks, and the adorable bunny all together. This item is no transfer, however it is copy and modify so you can adjust it to your liking if you so desire. Just be sure to make a copy first! To get your copy of this free group gift, you’ll need the Simply Shelby group tag. The group is currently free to join. Also, there are quite a few other group gifts also available. The Simply Shelby group gifts are located in the VIP/Hunts & Events building alongside the Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards.

Here are the details:

A Sharp Start to the New Year

Dressed for Success

Happy New Year, Fabulous Readers!  The other day, I told you about the Sense Event, showed a free gift I picked up there, and mentioned that there was another present there for the guys.  I decided to start off 2019 by sporting the second outfit I picked up – the Casey Formal Set by Alter.  Again, the generous designer has tucked everything you need for a complete outfit inside this free package.

Dressed for Success

Featuring a long sleeve, button down shirt, gleaming black trousers and lace up shoes all in black, this outfit is sharp looking, and can easily take you from a casual day of shopping with your lady to a night out on the town.  I really like the sheen of the pants because they contrast just enough with the top to add visual interest, yet still coordinate with the ebony theme.  The shoes are worn separately, but the clothing comes as a packaged set, so getting dressed quickly is a snap.  To add Casey to your SL closet, travel to the Sense Event, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.  The free box contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, but I did have to switch to a different mesh body than my usual Belleza because there is no Jake option in the package.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Shoes for classic, Signature, Slink and TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Of Gifts and Goals

Snowy Woods

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I decided to go for a long walk today and think about 2018.  I like to do that as the year ends and decide what to keep and what to improve.  The arrival of the new year brings a fresh, clean start, and I’m determined to set some realistic goals for myself – goals that I can stick to.  As we meandered through the winter wonderland scenes at Lemon Beach, I began by listing what went well in the past year.  For starters, finding budget friendly fashions and sharing them with our favorite readers is going right at the top of the “Keep on Trucking” list.

I Sense a Gift (or Two)

Earlier in the day, Rip and I made a visit to the Sense Event.  This monthly happening showcases new releases in a variety of categories from menswear to furniture to home and garden to kids’ items to women’s wear.  Each round opens on the 18th of the month.  We arrived and landed in front of a Christmas tree surrounded by free gifts.  Many of them are for the ladies, but I happily discovered two for the gentlemen.  The free gift box from Alter contains a deep crimson button down shirt, classic black trousers and even shoes.  The Owen top features rolled back cuffs, a subtle vertical stripe pattern, realistic folds and several buttons undone.  The solid black trousers fit well and coordinate perfectly with the top.  To complete the look, the generous designer also tucked a pair of oxfords inside the package as well.  The best part about this gift is that it includes standard mesh for classic avatars as well as styles for popular mesh bodies – all for free!  You just need to be a member of the Sense Event group, but it’s completely free to join.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Setting Some Goals

Now that we’ve  examined what went well, it’s time to think of a few things to work on.  I know for sure Kat has some ideas for chores around the house, but I reckon there’s room on the “To Do” list for some quiet moments fishing with man’s best friend.  Isn’t that right, Rip?  Rip?! Now where did he get off to?  Ugh.  That dog can hear the rattle of a box of Ripley Snacks more than a country mile away.  Seems like he just might not be man’s best friend after all.  I guess I’d better head home and get to work repainting the trim around the doors and attacking that “Honey Do” list.  There will be plenty of time for fishing down the road (I hope).  Until next time, happy shopping!

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Hmm, is that Stan on the beach over there in the wetsuit? Gosh, he looks pretty hot. I need to get Gavin a wetsuit like that…

OH HEY there, fabulous readers! You caught me ogling the cute guys on the beach today. Shame on me, but what can I say? They look too good not to look, lol! 😎

A New SENSEation

If you haven’t been over to the latest round of the SENSE Event, then you need to go there now! There are quite a few gifts set out, and I know you won’t want to miss them.

Today, I’m wearing two of the gifts, which were set out for members of the TeleportHub in-world group. The Ashley Boho Dress Pink & Mocha is by ALTER and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I love the saying on the top, “Let your faith be bigger than your fear.” It’s been my mantra all this week as I’ve been pushing myself to do a few things that are definitely out of my comfort zone. 🙂

The second gift I’m wearing is the pretty Infinite Love necklace, also by ALTER. If you need to, click the necklace to bring up the blue resizer menu.

It’s Getting Hot Warm Out Here

I also picked up the newest group gift from Hello Dave and was delighted to see how perfectly it matched my outfit. The glittery little dragonflies are adorable!

Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, and Slink hands are included.

Hello Dave - Nail Appliers

Enjoy!

Morning Still Loves You Automatic

Morning Still Loves You Automatic

You would never guess from my most recent few posts here that I got a beautiful new skin that I’m in love with. I’ve shown it exactly one time…from the back. There are just so many lovely skins around, how can a girl be expected to commit to just one? Even a gorgeous one that stole her heart? Are we still talking about skins? Yes, most definitely!

The Skin I’m In

Isn’t it pretty? It’s the newest group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. I love a store with a cute puny name. Especially when said store gives out a free skin each month to their group members! There is 225L fee to join the group and it’s totally worth it.

Vestir Bonita

I am shocked that my high school Spanish classes stuck with me enough to form the above phrase, although I’ll admit that I gave it a quick google to make sure I was correct. This vestir bonita is a free gift at the Sense event, which ends soon on June 8th. There are a few gifts there available to different groups. To get the lovely layered dress that I’m wearing here, you’ll just need to join the Mejora tu Apariencia group (it’s free to join).

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus

Ready, Set… Relax

Untitled

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! 🙂

As you can see, Gavin has already started his holiday weekend at the beach. Hopefully, he saved a spot for me because after this week I’m really ready to relax!

Alter Your Senses

ALTER set out a the Tottes Tank & Shorts as a free gift for members of the Sense Event in-world group. Both pieces come in sizes for the following mesh bodies:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Signature Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

The shorts only come in blue denim, but the tank comes with a HUD containing 7 different textures.

This round of the Sense Event will end on April 8. There is also a gift from ALTER for the ladies!

Oh, and you can find Gavin’s leather bracelet at Cold Ash as a free group gift. It’s been out for a while but was still available at the time of this publishing.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena
