Strolling Through Starlight Shores

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  The pupster and I just had to get away from the last minute shopping and wrapping.  It was a bright, sunny day and we both needed a walk in the country air.  If you haven’t visited the Starlight Shores sim, I highly recommend a trip.  It’s the perfect spot for a relaxing get away.  There is a pond for skating, wildlife and gorgeous landscaping to enjoy.  Speaking of places to enjoy, have you visited the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale going on at The Wash?

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

There are so many budget friendly offerings at The Wash.  My favorite has to be the Krystal Outfit from Finale Couture’s cart.  Featuring a long jacket with grayish blue accents, coordinating thigh high boots and optional fur collar and cuffs, this outfit will have you suited up for a chilly day in an elegant style.  The main body of the coat has a woven texture which is really well done, and gray trim and buttons provide the finishing touches.  The best part was the entire package cost just 10 Linden dollars!  The sale runs until January 2nd, so you have plenty of time to take a stroll around the sale and pick up some goodies for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy shopping!

Midnight Violet

Pretty in Purple
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day, when the pupster and I visited TRS Designs, I spotted this gorgeous violet gown on a Midnight Madness board.  It took several attempts before I popped in this morning to discover an inventory offer from the shop.  I couldn’t wait to try on the Sandra Gown!  With its slender decorative straps, eye-catching, lace net waistline, and flattering fit, this free elegant frock is sure to become a favorite of mine for evenings out on the town.  The long skirt offers full coverage along with a slightly flared hemline for ease of movement on the dance floor, while the halter-style neckline allows a sensual glimpse of skin. I thought the bows at the bodice offered just the right decorative element.  There is no group required to enter to win.  All you have to do is travel to the shop, tap the Midnight Madness board, and cross your fingers.  With a low target of only 20 avatars, the odds are in your favor that you will soon possess your very own copy of this lovely outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes lace alpha)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping to you!

Smiles on a Cloudy Day

Little by Little

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It has been a number of cold, gray, rainy days in a row where I am in RL, so I guess that influenced my selection of outfit and location for today’s blog post.  With a couple of lamps to guide our way, Ripley and I set out to explore the snowy It All Starts With a Smile sim. Rip never has to worry about getting the chills with his luxurious fur coat, and lucky for me, with my cozy knitted outfit and scarf from VIPs Creations, I stayed toasty warm all day as well!

Nothing Goes Together Like Winter and a Sweater

Unless of course it’s a knitted skirt, fleecy scarf, and a sweater!  My entire outfit today from my shawl to my shoes is a free group gift for members of the VIPs Creations group, which by the way, is free to join!  I just love it when I get a complete outfit all in one swoop!  The soft, woolen, long-sleeved sweater wrapped my arms in comfort, while its cropped waistline offered a sexy peek at my midsection.  Just so we could keep snuggly warm, the generous designer tucked a black scarf in the package to drape around our necks.  It resizes with just a touch, so you can adjust it as needed for your avatar.  A thick, knitted gray skirt which fell to just above my knees, perfectly coordinated with the hue of my top, and rounded out my outfit.  Finally, before setting out with Ripley, I slipped on the Cecilia shoes, which are also included as part of the gift.   These leather high heels are packed with details such as three buckles and delicate knotted laces.  They were the perfect footwear to shield my toes from old Jack Frost.  If you would love to capture this sweet, stylish complete outfit for yourself, head on over to VIPs Creations, join the group if you’re not a member already, then tap the gift board.  There’s also a men’s group gift up for grabs, but since Ripley already sports a fluffy winter coat, he opted out (not to mention the fact that he’s a canine!).  I can’t say I blame him….he’s pretty cute just the way he is!

What’s Included:

  • Cecilia Shoes for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya
  • Skirt in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Top in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Black Scarf

Sunny Days Ahead…. (I Hope!)

I think Ripley and I have had enough rain and gray skies to fill us up for quite some time.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you sunshine and happy shopping!

Goods New / Bad News – You Decide!

Snapshot_006I have some news for you today that is kinda good, and kinda bad :/.

I adore simple / clean fashion and have always been a fan of the designs that come from Aushka & Co.!  Well.. the other day I received a notice letting me know that due to limited time, Aida will no longer be designing under the Aushka & Co. brand and will be focussing her time now on her new brand = Breathe.  With that, many a design in her Aushka & Co. shop will be retired to marketplace (full price) on the 13th of September.  The good news is that until then you can pick up anything in the shop for 50 or 75L like the very pretty vintage dress I am wearing today (75L).A&CO_Closing Sale She also has several group gifts that you can pick up after you join their free inworld group as well as dollarbies too.  Most of these have been blogged on FabFree already, but I wanted you to see that they are all available at this moment if you missed any!Snapshot_007

She’s Such A Sweet Thing Every Day Of The Week

I had a notice through today about a new group gift from AUSHKA&CO ! The My Week shorts are their newest free gift and are so cute.
Untitled

You can have a pair of the shorts for every day of the week and if you ever forget which day it is, which I do frequently, you can just take a look in the mirror and bingo! You will be reminded.. though knowing me, I would still end up wearing Tuesdays shorts on Thursday! I am wearing the Sunday ones in this picture but the gift is a fatpack that includes all the names of the days of the week.
Untitled

I couldn’t resist showing the shorts with the adorable freebie “You’re A Sweet Thing” necklace that is the free group gift from Sweet Thing. It comes in both gold and silver. They also have a set of nail varnishes available for free so don’t forget to pick those up too while you are there. It was really hard to snap a picture of the HUD as it was quite small, but they are adorable!
Untitled

Also a quick note about my shoes.. these are the Ramsey Flats for SLink Low Feet that REIGN had out for L$75 for The Saturday Sale. They were still available at time of publishing this post, but I don’t know how long for so get over there quick if you want them as they may not be up for that price for much longer!

D’awwww!

Snapshot_002Good evening Fabulouses! OMGosh how cute are these puppies?  My friend Grace Selene sent me a message as soon as I logged in tonight and told me about these uber sweet decorative dogs that you can pick up as a free group gift at !! Follow US !! .  They are called Mr. & Mrs. Halloween and are 6 prims, rezzed together.  These little guys even come with transfer perms, but…  be warned – you can only pick up the gifts once, so if you give yours away – that’s it!  The group is 40L to join, but there are a TON of previous group gifts to pick up and heck, I’d pay way more than 40L for this one gift alone!
Snapshot_003I also wanted to tell you about my dress today because it is not only mega hot, but it’s also just 1L for The Bling Hunt at AUSHK’A & Co. and comes in a light blue colour as well.  All you need to do is purchase the hidden gold crown for 1L and both dresses are yours!
