Safer Up Here

Safer up Here

Have I mentioned before that I have a fear of lakes?  Well if I haven’t, I’m mentioning it now.  There’s something sinister about the black depths of a lake, with its slimy greenery and threat of snapping turtles that just gives me the heebie jeebies.  However, this pretty little body of water I found at Baja Norte may be just the place for me.  Nevertheless, I will pass my time on the dock looking pretty as a picture instead of diving in!

The Circle is Complete

Juli mentioned in her post today that there are gifts over at Designer Circle!  They’re celebrating their anniversary, and have all sorts of lovely things out!  Some of the gifts can be picked up by paying 0L for them, and others you may have to join the free group for, either way all the gifts there are completely FREE!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE Dress by Pacifica sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus – Comes in pink and blue versions
  • FREE Bento Mesh Nails by SlackGirl for Maitreya, Tuty, Belleza, Altamura, Eve, Tonic, Slink and Vista in six different shades
  • FREE Lipstick applier by GO which works with a Catwa applier and an Omega applier

There’s a whole lot of awesome over at Designer Circle, so make sure you jump on over there!

I may just dip a toe in!

The Evening Just Got Curiouser and Curiouser

Curiouser and Curiouser

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a terrific Monday.  Last night, Ripley and I had quite an adventure over on the Baja Norte sim.   We were strolling along a forest path, me taking in the peaceful bird songs, and the pupster happily sniffing the trails of woodland creatures, when out of nowhere, this large white rabbit raced past, muttering something about being late.  Of course, Rip couldn’t resist temptation, and the race was on, with me trailing behind in my high heels and gown, hollering at my naughty pup, “STOP! STOP! Come back!!”  Did he listen?  Nope!  When I finally caught up to him, he lay panting on the ground next to a giant stack of storybooks.  The white rabbit that started it all?  Gone!

Ready for Wonderland

The evening had been off to an unusual start, but at least I looked like a fairy tale character myself in my lovely new gown from Virtue.  I picked it up completely for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With an off the shoulder design accented with soft pink trim, the Angel Dress will have you ready for date night, a formal dance or a trip to a fantasy land far away.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but the darker pink fabric is enhanced with sparkly golden accents.  This frock is just so elegant!  Its waistline drapes beautifully around the body, and its skirt falls gracefully to a comfortably wide hemline, where it barely whisks above the ground.  The gift package contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as popular mesh bodies, so I’m sure you’ll find a fit for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S, M, L and Vol (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • O. Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I’m hoping once Ripley catches his breath, he’ll realize it’s pointless to wait for that old rabbit to reappear, and we’ll be able to head home.  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!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs
Skin – Essences  – Amber

Longing For A Beach Day

This is a Well Made Item!Boat Gasoline and Coconut Sunscreen

What I would give for one of those carefree summer beach days right about now!  The warm breeze through the palm trees that continually blows whisps of hair into your bubblegum lipgloss without fail.  Of course it’s annoying in the moment to have to pick your hair out of your lipgloss, but right about now I’d take it, and like it.   I long for the kind of day that smells like boat gasoline, and coconut sunscreen.

Well-Made

This longing is all courtesy of my current weather… and Well-Made’s free group gift called the Holly Outfit that inspired my imaginary beach day.  The Holly Outfit includes the floral ribbon pants and the matching peachy pink cropped T-Shirt that you see me wearing today.  It’s available in all kinds of mesh body fits and the group is free to join with several other group gifts to enjoy!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis
  • TMP

Replenishing Pixie Powers

Reindeer Princess

Hello Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I were out wandering the grid, my canine pal froze, pricked up his ears, tilted his head, then took off running.  Barely managing to keep him in my field of vision, I trailed behind, wondering what in the world had gotten into the pupster this time.  Out of breath, I finally caught up to Rip at the Pennycat sim, where I found him offering a comforting paw to a downcast pixie.  She and the other magical creatures on the sim explained that the Great Pixie of Winter had been weakened in a battle with the Demon of the Sun.  By collecting snowflakes and returning them to the Pixie of Night Snow, we could help the Great Pixie of Winter to recover all three of her powers.  It seemed a simple enough task, and with the promise of some lovely hunt prizes, Ripley and I set to work collecting snowflakes for the Pixies of Snow Hunt.  In just a short amount of time, we were victorious in our mission, and gathered our hunt prizes.  Two of them are featured in tonight’s post.

Reindeer Princess

My gorgeous crimson and white gown set the theme for the outfit I put together for my photo today.  The Aurora Princess Dress is a free gift from Shanti for members of the Shanti Bohemian Shop group.  This stunning strapless dress features a red bodice with contrasting white stitching, and a full paneled, floor length skirt.  In the chilly early winter air, I was grateful for the coordinating wrap draped around my shoulders.   The gift box includes mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL and an alpha layer for classic avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport to the shop, activate the group tag (50L join fee) and click the vendor.  The generous designer set out other gifts out for group members, too.

Myster Owl

A “Crown” Atop My Head and a New Found Friend

The free prize box from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions awarded at the conclusion of the Pixies of Snow Hunt contained two fun accessories to complete my outfit.  Sitting atop my head, the free Winter Stag Antlers added a touch of whimsy and holiday spirit to my otherwise formal attire.  The pale gray color scheme worked well with the winter white sections of my gown.  Every princess needs a trusted advisor or two, and Mr. Wyse, my free shoulder pet (also from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions)  fit the bill perfectly.  He is just so cute, and is already fast friends with Ripley.  The best part in Ripley’s opinion…. he doesn’t care to munch on Ripley snacks!

More Boxes to Unpack…

I still have more packages to open and hunt prizes to sort through.  It almost looks like Christmas came early to my little homestead.  I think there’s a very good chance Ripley and I will be back soon with another Pixie gift or two.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Sit Stay Good Dog

Sit Stay Good Dog“Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…” Does anyone else start singing that song from Grease when every they see “Summer Lovin'” written anywhere? lol Okay maybe it’s just me. Since it’s been a minute since my last post, I’ve filled this one with fun stuff from the Women Only Hunt, and one item from the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Both hunts started June 1st, and there are so many cute things to hunt for, it was hard to pick what to show! Also you may have seen a few posts from some of my Fabulous teammates. I’ll link to their posts in the credits as well, just in case!

I’m going to start with this puppy and ice cream pose from Le Poppycock because it’s my favorite. I’m such a sucker for French bulldogs, and this little guy, or gal, is just irresistible. The pose shown in the top photo, the puppy, and the delicious looking ice cream cone are all included in the FREE Women Only Hunt gift at Le Poppycock. If your a photographer this pose set is especially great, because the puppy is meant to be worn. Wearing the puppy puts your avatar in the pose so you can use it without having to rez anything. The gift also comes with the pose, so you could rez the puppy and use the pose alone, allowing for a little more versatility.Sit Stay Good Dog 2Also part of the Women Only Hunt is this frilly little crop top from 1 Hundred. This is an applier top with appliers for almost everything you could imagine. There is a single hud that includes appliers for mesh breasts (Lolas, Lush, Mirage, Delicq,Omega), and mesh bodies (Wowmeh, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Omega). Additionally this FREE WOH gift from 1 Hundred includes classic system layers for non mesh wearers.

This sinfully sweet full-body tattoo is another FREE WOH gift. Chemical Princess put this “Cupcake” tattoo out, and I just love it. The tattoo is filled with yummy looking candies, cupcakes, ice cream, and other sweets. This gift tattoo comes with an Omega applier, a Slink applier, and classic system layers. Tattoo lovers like me won’t want to miss out on this delicious tattoo!

Arise is also participating in the WOH and their gift is a beautiful set of “Sunny” eyes. These shining bright blue eyes are part of the FREE set from Arise. The gift includes a brown, grey, lime, purple, and sky pair of eyes along with the light blue ones shown. In the package you’ll get a set of mesh eyes for each color and a matching system eye layer. Sunny is definitely an appropriate name for these eyes, each of the colors are equally bright and vibrant.

Back to the Summer Lovin’ part of this post! Slipper put out these cute sandals as their Summer Lovin’ Hunt gift. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so these cute shoes are just 1 linden. The gift includes a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. Also, Slipper is participating in the Women Only Hunt as well, so don’t forget to hunt down that gift while you’re there!
