Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Family

Guardians_001

It’s hard to believe how close we are almost to December. To celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, Baby Monkey is giving out a special group gift to their members. All you’ll need to do is be a member of the group (it’s only 20L to join).

To get the gift

Join the group by pasting secondlife:///app/group/56b559e4-74aa-2b4a-deeb-7c5d4517fe3a/about into your local chat and then check the group notices for the gift. Notices expire after 14 days, so be sure to hurry to get this beautiful Olive Wood Nativity from Baby Monkey.

Not just for Christmas

One thing that really resonated with me about this beautiful gift from Baby Monkey is that it can speak to many people. As said in the beautiful little note that was included with the gift: “If you are not a Christian we think this is still a charming family group that speaks to the enduring love of parents for their child.” This is a gift that is for all families, not just those who celebrate Christmas.

Just 2 Prim

The lovely sculpture come in at just 2 prim and is also modifiable if you want to make it larger. Currently it is tabletop size.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/20/2017 – Baby Monkey

Baby Monkey Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! I’ve been lucky, my weekend started early which means more time for my Fabulously Free in SL family. It also means I had a little extra time to check out this weeks designer of the week, Baby Monkey. The Baby Monkey shop is probably best known for their shoes, however they also have quite a bit of ladies and some mens fashion, and accessories. You may recall seeing their most recent Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift in Astrid’s post “Paradise and Leaves.” More on that in a moment. The Baby Monkey shop has a nice, easy to navigate store with a pretty center courtyard. I like this shop setup up quite a bit because it’s easy to use your camera to see where you are and where you want to go next.

In what you could call the main part of the store you’ll see a desk with a few little FREE gift bags sitting on it. These fun little freebies are FREE to everyone. Each of the 4 bags has something interesting or useful for anyone, such as an ankle lock, or tummy takers, one even has a ton of recipes inside. Next to the desk is a teleporter that lets you jump to an individual department for easy shopping. Also in this same room you’ll find the Baby Monkey group gifts. The Baby Monkey group is just 20 lindens to join at this time and there are current and previous group gifts available.
Baby Monkey Gifts
In addition to the numerous Baby Monkey group gifts, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, including the previously mentioned Fab Free exclusive gift. Remember, the Fab Free gift requires the Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Needless to say the Baby Monkey shop has something for everyone, and for just about any occasion. Don’t miss out on these great freebies and cheapies! Happy weekend and have fun shopping!

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

Getting ready

Getting ready

The need to unwind

It’s been a pretty busy couple of days for me out in the real world (the kind that leaves you feeling as if you’ve been trampled on by a small herd of elephants). While all of this stampeding activity is far from over I thought I’d take advantage of a lucky little lull to sneak onto SL for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Seeing how it’s St Patrick’s Day, a green outfit was in order and happily enough Baby Monkey’s new free group gift, Else, was just the dress for this occasion. This quarter sleeved, collared shirt dress has a chic retro vibe to it that’s accentuated by the pretty bowed belt at its waist. The cherry blossom print of the Else dress not only adds a dash of sweetness to the outfit but a lovely contrasting white as well. What I adore most about this new group gift, however, is its versatility. You’re able to wear the blouse and skirt components as one single outfit or wear them individually to mix and match with other pieces of clothing in your inventory. The gift package includes a hud which lets you switch up between two different colors (warm green and bright blue) for the blouse, skirt, and belt, opening up more combinations for you to play around with. Sizes include:

Blouse:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Skirt:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Dress:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya

The Baby Monkey Group costs 20L to join and to add the Else dress to your collection you’ll just have to pay the vendor 1L before getting an instant refund. Use that dollar to snap up the other current group gifts at the store as well (past group gifts cost 10L each).

Getting ready

Accessorize

Speaking of eye-catching colors, the Aishas set from Legendarie certainly fits the bill very well. These lovely fuschia heels and matching clutch bag are a free gift for everyone, meaning that you don’t have to use up group slots or tap any sub-o machines to get your hands on them. There was no way I could pass up on these flirty strappy slingbacks (only made for Slink high feet, however) and the fact that there’s a matching clutch thrown into the mix just sweetens up the pot. There are two different versions of the clutch bag included in the gift package, one worn on your avatar’s hand and the other worn higher. You’re able to move, rotate and stretch the clutch and permissions are set to copy so do make backups before editing. I’m not sure how long this pretty gift will be out for so get it ASAP.  Legendarie is a generous store that set out free gifts fairly regularly so I would recommend putting it on your ‘must watch’ list. Though there’s a 99L group join fee there are tons of past gifts to pick up at the store.

Hairstyles

One of these days I’ll stop writing about the Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round but that day clearly isn’t today. There are so many great free gifts by awesome designers and I was really excited to discover that there’s not one but two hairstyles that you can snap up at the event at no cost at all. The Ullrika hairstyle from EMO-tions is a great messy updo that allows you to just toe the line when looking for something elegant by not too formal. The pretty braided details of the Ullrika hairstyle are a very nice touch as well. In the gift package, you’ll receive

  • Two versions of the Ullrika hairstyle, one for larger chests
  • Huds for the Black/White, Blondes, Brunettes, Reds and Pastels palette colors. Each hud contains eight tones and a resize script
  • Fatpack of tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Hairbase appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and mesh heads using the Omega system.
  • Hair alpha layer

The Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round is running until the end of the month so go and snap up your gifts if you haven’t already.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got my keys right here and I’m pretty sure I haven’t left the stove on. Time to hit the grid and take a peek at those Fifty Linden Friday offers. Happy St Patrick’s Day! I’ll catch you guys later!
