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!

Punk Rock and Pumpkins

Punk Rock and Pumpkins

I’m all punk rock and pumpkin colours tonight, ready for a little frolicking in the leaves with a bit of an edge!  Are you in the mood for some toughness?  Well let me get right down to it then!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Crom is currently having a little hunt over at their mainstore.  There are 5 little pumpkins hiding around the store.  Buy them for 5L each, and you’ll find all sorts of cuteness inside!  I picked up pumpkin number 1, and inside lay this super cute miniskirt.  I can wear it with loads of different tops and at any time -not just Halloween!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS-XL with an Alpha Layer

Up Top

My top is another free find over at Trick or Treat Lane, this one by Glutz!  There are loads of gifts to be had for absolutely free, as I mentioned the other day, no group join required.  The Babygirl top gift by Glutz features a cute bat on the front and is sized for Hourglass, Freya, Maitreya, Physique and V-Tech with several different petite and push-up options for a few of the sizes.

More Hair!

My sweet multitone bob is a free gift by BMS at the Japan Canvas sim.  They’re having a little hunt which didn’t strain my eyes too much, thankfully!  I searched for the little orange clapboards not far from the landing point, and I quickly found this hair!  There are two other styles inside the box too!  Cool!

Is carving pumpkins considered punk rock?

My self-control’s so paralyzed

Sexy dress alert! This is not a drill. Please proceed with caution to CroM’s cart at The Wash to pick up this sexy dress for just 10L. I repeat, this is not a drill. Running is permitted, as is tping hastily, but please no shoving. There is enough for everyone.

Sexy Dress

For 10L, I got this great dress in 3 colors! There’s a HUD to change it from the blue that I’m wearing to either green or brown. It comes sized for:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • 5 classic sizes, XL-XS

It really is a hot little number. I love the pretty draping fabric at the front and the back is pretty much not there and tied at the neck. It’s hot.

Gotta Accessorize

I chose these pretty earrings to complete my look. They are a FREE subscribo gift from Zuri Rayna. If you’ve already subscribed, you might need to unsubscribe and then resubscribe to get them. That’s what I did, and upon resubscribing I was automatically given this fancy gift. You can’t really see them so well in my picture, so here’s a better look:

Pretty, right? I thought they were perfect to compliment my sexy dress. ❤

I feel you whisper across the sea

I feel you whisper across the sea

Ohhh Fab Free, I’m so excited about today’s post. Yesterday, Blueberry sent out a new group gift! It is free with a free group join. And just like everything else from Blueberry, it’s absolutely flawless and comes in the fatest of fatpacks!

Meet Mimi

This sweet little dress has a slight ruffle along all of the edges, a great cut out in the middle, and ties at the chest. I’m in love. Do I say that too often? Maybe so, but I just can’t help it. I already mentioned the fatpack, and let me tell you – it comes packed full of plain colors, a bunch of patterns, and some ombres too. Plus there are panties that can be turned off and on, as well as changed to any of the solid color options. The sizes included are:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

To get the free gift, you don’t need to go to the store – just join the group and check the group notices! The dress is there waiting for you. Right now the group is free to join. I read either on flickr or group chat that the free group join is just supposed to be for yesterday, today it is supposed to go back up to 20L. However, I checked this morning and it’s still free! But seriously, even for 20L this dress is totally worth it. And there are a bunch of other really great group gifts on the wall in the store so you’ll want to pop over there and grab those too if you haven’t already.

Life’s been good to me so far

Life's been good to me so far

Happy Saturday, FabFree! I was wandering around The Darkness event recently and came across gifts! Isn’t that the best? There are 3 boxes set out in front of Adris King’s booth and each one is only 10L. I was distracted by all of the pretty tattoos around me (seriously, I might need a tattoo intervention) and just grabbed one as I walked by. I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked it later.

This dress is really cute! I love the silver specks in the texture and it’s got these sexy cut outs on either side – I tried to give you a bit of a side angle so you could see what I’m talking about. It’s just a really great little black dress that I’m pleased to have added to my inventory. The sizes are:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • 5 classic sizes, XL-XS
  • 5 fitmesh sizes XL-XS

I totes need to go back and see what’s in the other two 10L boxes! And maybe buy a tattoo from one of the other shops while I’m there…

  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Phisique
  • 5 fitmesh sizes, XS-XL

It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at Trashed and the Teleport Hub group is 10L to join.

Softly you whisper, you’re so sincere

Softly you whisper, you're so sincere

Hi! Aren’t the things that I’m wearing pretty? Let me tell you about them!

Risque

My top and panties are a free group gift from Queenz. They come in the white that I’m wearing as well as red and black. You’ll just need to join the free Queenz group when you get to the store and all three colors come together and sized for:

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

The undies are a nice simple but sexy thong. I’m in love with the gorgeous lacy detail of the top and the back is lots of really fabulous crisscrossed straps. It would be perfect with a pair of jeans and in fact I wore it like that for a day last week, but I’m showing it with just the panties because no pants is apparently how we roll on this blog. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t fault someone browsing the most recent photos on my flickr stream for assuming that I don’t own any pants. Maybe I should consider actually getting dressed sometimes. Oh well.

Deadly

My pretty skin is a 4th of July gift from 7 Deadly Skins. I went and grabbed it today but I have no idea how much longer it will be available so huuuurry. You do need to be a member of the group and it is 225L to join BUT right now you can grab this skin as well as the July group gift which is a 300L gift card. So your membership is paying for itself plus some straight away, and there are new group gifts every month. Pretty sweet deal, right? I love the red lips on this Dreams skin that I’m wearing. It comes with omega appliers for both the head and body as well as brow and no-brow versions so you can slap on your own eyebrows if the color doesn’t suit you.

In My Dreams You’re Touching My Face

In My Dreams You're Touching My Face

I haven’t been to La Vie in a few weeks and decided to head over there to take my picture today. OMG it is so different and still so pretty. It’s seriously the perfect place to explore and take pictures.

The outfit

There are two new free group gifts at Canimal, plus a bunch of other previous gifts, and the group is free to join. I love this sexy, silky little one piece outfit. It also comes with a HUD full of colors. It is only fitted for Maitreya Lara.

The necklace

My necklace is one of the free group gifts at amias. It’s a black choker tied into a bow at the side that can easily be dressed up or down. I love a necklace that I can wear with anything! The amias group is free to join. They’re also currently having a 50% off sale, and I definitely picked up a couple of other things while I was there!

P.S. My pretty new skin (but not the cleavage) is from yesterday’s Fifty Linden Friday. I’m in love! There was this tone plus another in Polar. Totally worth going over to see if they’re still on sale!

Summertime, And The Livin’s Easy

Summertime, And The Livin's Easy

Do you know what I like even better than regular gifts? Unexpected surprise gifts! And that’s just what I found as I was browsing Designer Showcase. There are 4 gifts set out in front of Lavian&Co’s booth and they are all seriously fabulous. I had trouble deciding which one to show you today, but finally settled on this cute, casual look.

Summertime

How great is this little outfit? I tried to show you a bit of the back because the top is all untucked and adorable. The whole thing is one piece – the little white shorts don’t change (and why would I want them to, anyway) but the pretty, silky top can be changed to a bunch of different colors with the included HUD. To get the gifts you’ll need to join the free Designer Showcase VIP group and locate Lavian&Co’s set up at Designer Showcase. There you will find the 4 free group gifts that I mentioned earlier.

Life’s A Road That You Travel On

Life's Life A Road That You Travel On

Check me out! I’m a biker chick! Well, maybe not a biker chick…maybe more like a bike admirer? Yes, we’ll go with that.

Those Jeans Though

The jeans that I’m wearing are an oldie but a goodie. They are a free gift over at Beautiful Dirty Rich and no group join is required (although if you do join the free group, there are a bunch of group gifts to be had as well). I think a good pair of applier jeans is a necessity in any inventory, and these are fantastic with rips in all the right places. If you fancy your jeans without rips, there are some of those available as well and an assortment of other gifts, all for 0L or 1L. The destroyed jeans come with appliers for:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Phat Azz (is that even a thing anymore?)
  • And if all else fails, there is an Omega applier as well

I want to ride my bike

This motorcyle is awesome AND it’s only 10L on the marketplace. Confession time…I don’t know much about motorcycles, which is doubly bad because I used to be an owner of a bike shop and have many, many used-to-be-awesome-but-now-outdated motorcycles in my inventory. Although to be fair, my ownership was purely symbolic because I was an owner in all of our other groups at the time. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even have perms on most anything. haha But I digress…as I was saying, I don’t know much about bikes, but I know enough to know that this one is really great. It is fully functional and comes with a driver HUD. For 10L. Pretty sweet deal.
