With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Some Days, You Just Get Lucky

A Single Sunbeam

Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are off today on a camping adventure to the mountains (just in time to escape a horrible heat wave), but I couldn’t leave without sharing this free outfit with you first.  I just love the design of this one!

“To Me, Flowers Are Happiness”

This quote from Stefano Gabbana says it all.  When I put on an item decorated with posies, I just have to smile.  I absolutely adore the combination of denim and the pretty floral print in this Naira Top and Skirt from Safira.  I know, I know, just yesterday I told you about a cute top that I picked up as a free group gift at the shop, but I also mentioned those group-only lucky boards.  This free outfit just so happens to be one of the ten prizes that group members can win if their lucky letter appears.  There were quite a few avatars in the shop while I was there, so the boards turned over very quickly and it didn’t take too long for that often elusive “K” to pop up.  I did a little happy dance, then scurried home to open up my prize.  The top is actually composed of two segments – a bandeau section and the long sleeves.  You can wear them together as I have done, or just the bra piece by itself to change up your look.  The skirt features a high waist, a zipper in the back, and a flirty hemline.  It’s a bit on the short side, so I made strategic use of the alpha layer on my mesh body, but it also has built in undies (the C string).  The generous designer included a texture change HUD so you can alter the shade of denim in the skirt, as well as the metals, and you can turn on and off the C string section and change up its color.  I really really love the hues in this set, and best of all it was free!  All I needed was a bit of patience and membership in the Safira Store Group (50L join fee).

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I will miss you when I am gone and hope you have a wonderful time in the next week.  I look forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with you when we return.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

It Was Just a Daydream


Just a Daydream

I sometimes have a habit of daydreaming, especially if I am near a window with even a somewhat interesting view. I don’t see it as a negative thing. Still, I’ll admit I sometimes find myself daydreaming when I should be doing other things. Today however, I have plenty to keep me busy. It’s Cart Sale time once again, and here at Fab Free that spells bargain hunting!

I’ve already browsed through the rows of carts at The Wash sim and no matter what your looking for, you just might find it. I picked up this cute little shorts and halter top set by Kuid for just 10 linden. The set comes with a hud for the top with several patterns and a few graphic choices, and a hud for the shorts to match them to the shirt. I think the back of the top is the best part of the whole outfit. This set comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus). To get yours, head to the Kuid Cart at The Cart Sale.

Let’s Go to Brazil

Cat Tails

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope the middle of the week is treating you well!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to tell you about this casual jean dress that I picked up as a free gift, and then we’re going to hit the road for a camping trip.  I sure hope it doesn’t snow *this* time!

Darling Denim

The Verona Dress from Enigma Apparel features a snug fitting bodice, pockets galore, and a skirt trimmed with a checked pattern.  I really like all the detailed stitching and the frayed texture on the back pockets.  The hem portion is slightly flared and falls to your upper thigh.  To add this little number to your inventory, teleport to Ajuda Brasil Volantarios, and follow the “Freebies” sign.  Use the teleporter in the back left portion of the freebies building to go to the 2nd floor.  The teleporter directions are not in English, so here’s a direct link to where you’ll find the dress.  Right click and pay the vendor 0 Linden dollars.  There is no group required.  When I first visited, I cammed around and was able to buy the dress without actually teleporting to the correct floor.  On my return visit to check the link for you, I used the “area search” function of the Firestorm Viewer under the “World” sub menu, typed in “Verona” and clicked “show beacons,” which allowed me to directly locate the dress and purchase it without using the teleporter at all.  However you get to it, this denim cutie will not disappoint!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

She Don’t Know…

She Don't Know She's Beautiful

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  Ripley and I are about to set off on a camping trip, but I couldn’t leave without telling you all about a stunning formal gown that I picked up for just 2 Linden dollars as a prize in the You’re Beautiful Hunt.

She’s Beautiful

I just love the color scheme of this outfit from The Sissy Bar!  The soft lavender hue of the material is accented with a delicate floral design.  Featuring a floor length skirt that just kisses the ground, this gown will have you feeling elegant as you sweep across the dance floor.  An x-shaped detail emphasizes the gown’s waistline, while an off-the-shoulder cut allows your shoulders to soak in some sun shine (or moonlight).  Just in case you get a little chilly, the designer also included a translucent shawl to wrap around yourself.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  All you have to do to add this lovely frock to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a mirror, and pay the teensy 2 Linden dollar fee.  There’s a handy hint giver in the store to point you in the right direction.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

We’re off to the mountains.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Marshmallow World

A Marshmallow World

It’s snowing!  It’s snowing!  I feel like a small child, running to the window with delight, then hastily putting on my outdoor gear to race out into the snow and catch a few snowflakes on my tongue.  I may have dressed a little quickly in my excitement, pulling on a comfy sweater and some lovely stockings to keep me toasty, and you guessed it – they’re free!

Black Fri-yay!

Pru mentioned earlier that there are gifts aplenty to be had at the Black Friday Bazaar!  Join the group there for free, and you’ll be rolling in awesomeness.  I got my hot little hands on this gorgeous hoodie by Sevyn East that comes with three different textures in the HUD, as well as these lovely thigh-high stockings by The Little Bat that come with an Omega applier.  There really are some lovely things to be had, that it was a hard job deciding what to show you!  Head on over and get your own awesomeness!

Sweater Sizes

  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Maitreya

Go frolic happily in the snow, why don’t ya?

Hey You With the Red Dress On

Red Dress

Well, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are still checking out the trail of The Red Hunt.  As you can see, we found another gorgeous crimson item over at AlaFolie that I’m excited to share with you.  I couldn’t help humming this song as I tried my new dress on.  It just seemed to fit the occasion.

She Wants to Make a Night to Remember

Featuring a bright, cheerful cherry colored fabric with a sprinkling of flowers and petals, this fun little dress is sure to draw eyes your way.  The green centers of the blossoms really pop against the red background.  I love the asymmetrical hemline, which is longer in the back and a flirty length in front.  Thankfully, the designer tucked a pair of coordinating panties in the box, which come in handy because of the shorter length.  The skirt is fairly full as it falls gently from the high empire waistline.  Short sleeves and a scooped neckline complete the look.  To add this frock to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the diabetes awareness ribbon concealed somewhere in the shop, then pay 10 Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original
  • Slink Original Petite
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

We’re off to finish our afternoon walk before we lose the sunshine.  I love the cooler temperatures of fall, but the shorter days are a bummer, don’t you think?  Until next time, happy hunting!

Hello November!

Hello November

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a fantastic Halloween.  We had quite a few trick or treaters last night.  It seemed like I would just sit down to type up this blog post, and then DING DONG went the door bell again!  There were a number of “first timers” that were just super adorable.  I think we had one repeat visitor, or maybe it was just a popular costume….since it had a full mask, I guess we’ll never know.  The best part (for me anyway) is we still have some candy leftover.  Yay!  Sorry boy, dogs can’t have chocolate.

Yes, It’s Free!

Speaking of sweet treats, Alias! is gifting the Dot Orange outfit to members of Fabulously Free in SL completely for free.  It features a tube top style shirt with a playful polka dot print in orange, white and black, as well as curve-hugging black jeans with a flared bottom hem.  Packed with details such as gleaming silver buttons, vertical panels in the pants and a ruffled bottom on the top, this duo aims to please.  Although you can’t see them well in my picture because of the bell bottoms, the package also includes chunky heels with a coordinating polka dot pattern.  Since each of the components are worn separately, you can mix and match them with other items in your wardrobe for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Ebody, Maitreya, and Slink

After hearing that he can’t have any of the candy, the pupster is now pouting in the corner.  I’m off to whip up a batch of Ripley Snacks to help him feel a bit better.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Friday, I’m Ready!

Gray Day

Hello Fabulouses.  We made it!  We’re finally on the downhill slide to Friday!  I don’t know about you, but for me, this week has dragged on in RL.  When Ripley and I were over at the Fatal Fashion store picking up the outfit I blogged in my post here, I saw the perfect little mini dress to ring in the weekend.  And, just like the last gift, this one is completely free and contains an entire look, including heels and a necklace!

Free Flirty Frock

The Cecelia dress features a subtle color variation from a lighter gray at the bodice to a darker tone at the skirt.  Deep black edging and horizontal bands accent the overall design.  I love the way the fabric “poufs” out and is gathered in.  It creates such a pleasing effect.  If you zoom your camera in close, you can even see lighter gray accent stitching – such fine detail!  It’s kind of hard to see in my photo, but the bodice is completely strapless.  The intricate Goddess Necklace I’m sporting is also included in the gift package as well as the high heel Lysa Shoes.  Right out of the box, you have everything you need for a night out on the town….all for free.  To pick up Outfit 047 for yourself, you need to be a member of the My Fair Gifts group, but it’s free to join.  Just teleport over to the shop, switch to the group tag, and tap the vendor.  You’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, that’s it for tonight – short and sweet – but I wanted to tell you all about this opportunity before Friday arrives.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

We’re Members Just for Today

When in Doubt, Wear Red

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic Saturday.  In RL, Ripley and I spent some time at a home show today, dreaming about renovations and all the things we can’t afford to do to our house.  So, when we got home, we popped onto SL and found a bunch of free gifts over at The Seasons Story.  I’m so glad there are such generous designers in SL!

Go Red!

Although I enjoy chatting and being around other people, I do have to admit there are those days when I just want to quietly take a walk with my pal and shut out the rest of the world.  The free sweatshirt that I picked up at the Moonstone display at The Season’s Story makes this abundantly clear with its printed message about the Anti Social Club.  This over sized hoodie is perfect for a brisk fall day spent exploring nature.  I really like the casual style and the bright crimson color.  The only quirky thing was the top forces you to have one hand in your pocket, which meant I needed to alpha out one of my hands.  On my Maitreya body, I could only alpha out both hands, so I dusted off the Slink hands I had in my inventory, and popped on the right one.  Problem solved!  Since the text on the top and the stripes on the sleeve are white, I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with white pants, but I think it would look great with denim as well.  The free gift package contains only one version – Maitreya – so if you have a different mesh body, this may not work for you.  However, since the gift is completely free, it may be worth a shot to pick it up and try – you might get lucky!  You have to be a member of The Seasons Story Event group to receive the gift, but there is no join fee, so I’d say give it a go!

I’m off to try on some of the other Fabulous Finds I scooped up at The Season’s Story.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
