Just a Girl and Her Horse

A Girl and Her Horse
Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued to work our way through the Country Girl Hunt at Brii Underground, and we discovered the stylish Fabiola outfit.  Just like the Keli dress I showed {HERE} yesterday, this hunt gift will deck you out from head to toe…all for only 1 little Linden dollar.  I love the combination of turquoise and brown, especially on the embroidered vest, which offers a sexy peek at the skin on my midriff.  Snug fitting jean shorts emphasize the length of my legs and hug every curve, while the dangling strands of the belt offer a playful bit of movement.  The feathered cowgirl hat coordinates perfectly with the colors of the vest, and offers a welcome respite from the rays of the sun.  Polished brown boots with silver adornments finish off the look.  This rancher is ready to lead her horse to water….. in style!

What’s Included:

  • Fabiola Vest in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Fabiola Shorts in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layers for classic avatars
  • Maitreya Applier for Tights and Gloves (I left my hands bare)
  • Omega Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Slink Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Omega Applier for Fabiola Make Up – Catwa Head (not shown)
  • Make Up Tattoo layer for classic avatars
  • Fabiola Hat
  • Fabiola Scarf (not shown)
  • Fabiola Boots
  • Fabiola Belt
  • Optional Light (not shown)

All ten of the dollarbie gifts in this hunt are up for grabs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own.  With Ripley’s talented nose, and the hints available by clicking the hunt sign in the Brii Underground store, locating all the rearing horses really didn’t take too long at all.  Since each package contains a complete outfit, you will come away with a versatile wardrobe perfect for a day on the farm, or a day of casual shopping.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

A Little Bird Said…

What’s Included:

  • Jacket, top and underwear layers for classic avatars
  • Appliers for:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Wowmeh mesh bodies
  • Universal Omega Applier (top, bra, pants, undies)
  • Applier for Lalas, *L.inc.*, U Luckie, Banned and Universal Omega

Down at the Cart Wash

There are so many amazing deals just waiting to be discovered at The Wash.  I hope you get a chance to check out the multitude of displays, and scoop up some budget-friendly finds for yourself before the carts are all packed up for this round.  The sale ends on April 12th.

Until next time my friends, happy shopping!

When Things Go Bump in the Night

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 2
Thump!  Bang!  Clatter!  The hair rose on Ripley’s hackles as the eerie noises crashed towards us on the evening air.  A deep growl began low in his throat, and his eyes focused on the back yard door.  My heart pounding, I grabbed a lantern (since I was in a medieval-style role play gown, a flashlight was out of the question) and, with a pounding heart, I made my way into the darkness of the yard, my steadfast protector by my side.

Brave Beatrice at Your Service

Now, what I was going to do when I met the maker of the noises, I hadn’t the faintest idea, but it seemed to me I just had to investigate.  At least I was elegantly dressed in my free Beatrice gown from AnaSTyle.   Featuring puffed sleeves, a laced bodice, and a delicately embroidered long skirt, this beautiful formal frock is perfect for role playing or just strolling around looking lovely.  The rich, red fabric and deep golden accents provided a vivid contrast to the white top.  I’ve been attempting for a week now to win one of the Mini Mania Prizes at AnaSTyle, and also claiming as many of the Lucky Board prizes as I can.  While waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I cammed around the shop, and spotted a Guess and Win game board.  The lovely Beatrice gown is one of its many rotating prizes.  All I had to do to capture this exquisite dress was to don my AnaSTyle group tag, and click tiles until I made a matching pair.  The AnaSTyle group has a 50L join fee, but with all of the gifts, Mini Manias, Midnight Manias, group-only lucky boards, and game prizes up for grabs, it’s a worthwhile investment!

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 1

What’s Included

  • Mesh Dress in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Necklace
  • Belt (not shown)
  • Keys (not shown)
  • Coordinating shoes (not shown)

The Mystery Solved…

As I held my lantern up high to illuminate the yard, I caught a glimpse of our nocturnal visitor.  Two glowing eyes stared worriedly back at me, while their hungry owner debated continuing to scavenge in the trash bin, or dashing off in a mad scramble.  After a warning rumble from my fierce watchdog, the raccoon quickly decided on the latter, and made a hasty exit to the nearby woods.  Breathing a sigh of relief, and making a vow to set out an extra bowl of food for our ravenous neighbor, I headed back inside with Ripley.

Here’s hoping you have a peaceful, safe evening wherever you are, Fabulous Readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A “Secret” Meant to be Shared

So much to be thankful for

Happy Thursday, Fab Free, and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Fabulouses living in the United States who celebrate this holiday!  Today has me thinking about all that I am grateful for – my family and friends in RL, my pets, my SL friends and fellow bloggers, and YOU, wonderful readers.  Your support, comments, likes, and messages truly brighten my days!  Being able to share my adventures with Ripley, and the Fabulous Finds we put together has been a fantastic experience.  I feel so blessed to be part of this supportive, friendly community…so thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the amazing people you are!

Quiet Moment

A Surprising Dress Discovery

After viewing Sheidey’s mesmerizing eyes featured in her post [HERE], Rip and I moseyed over to Dulce Secrets to have a look around.  In addition to gorgeous make up, alluring eyes, and sultry skins, the pupster sniffed out this beautiful Ines dress, which is a free group gift.  It features a strappy, figure hugging, sheath-style frock, with a sweetheart neckline, and a playful, asymmetical hem that reaches below the knees.  The gift also contains a short, dark chocolate colored jacket with three-quarter length sleeves, and an interesting texture variation across the shoulders in the back.  The warm tone of the bolero complements the softly faded blue of the dress beautifully.  Best of all, the Dulce Secrets group is completely free to join!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L and XL for classic avatars
  • Jacket applier for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus

Sugar and Spice

Sugar and Spice and Accessories Nice

As Love stated in her post [HERE] (in which she featured this newest gift from Truth Hawks), with jacket, scarf, and sweater season upon us, we all need a versatile hairstyle that won’t interfere with our outfits.  After reading Love’s post, I looked through the group notices for the Truth VIP group, and picked up the latest gift, Sugar.  This cinnamon hued, sweet bun with wispy tendrils (my spice for the day) was the perfect style for my new outfit.  I slipped on Janice heels from Moda, and the sapphire Sarai jewelry set from Krystal Fine Jewelry, then headed over to the Bella Pace sim for some quiet moments before traveling over to my parent’s house in RL to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my family.

Thank you for reading!  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping.

Time to Shimmer and Shine

Don't Tie Me Down
Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!

Last week, when I returned to Indyra to copy the landmark for my blog post, Ripley plunked himself down next to a sign in the plaza just outside Indyra’s door and refused to budge.  He kept gazing at me with his dark chocolate eyes, looking at the sign, and back at me.  After one glance at the “Tie the Knot Hunt” sign, I realized my canine companion was pointing out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

We had to don our detective hats, but after some searching around, I spied the small ring box cleverly hidden in the Indyra store.  Although it took a bit of effort (and maybe a little help from a certain someone’s talented nose), the prize within the hunt box made my time invested well worthwhile.  Jessa, Indyra’s lovely Tie the Knot Hunt gift, is a strappy, cream-colored dress with a gold brocade bodice and an airy, glistening skirt.  It’s so feminine and light – just perfect for an evening out.  The present comes with standard-sized fitmesh for classic avatars as well as appliers for mesh bodies.  This free, wedding-themed hunt runs until October 15th, so you still have time to head over to Indyra and do some sleuthing of your own.  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

I accessorized with Fabria, a delicate platinum necklace and earring set from Rebel Hope Designs.  Nena Mesh High Heels from ILLI, which I found on The Marketplace for only 99L, completed my look.  I know this is a bit above 75 Lindens, but these simple slink heels come with a HUD that allows for endless color variations, so one pair is like having a closet full of heels for a small investment.

Ripley and I are off in search of more Fabulous Finds for you.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

Recharge Your Soul

 

Recharge Your Soul

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Here’s hoping you are having a lovely, lazy weekend.  Ripley and I are out doing what we do best…….Sunday!  We did some shopping (of course!), then some wandering, and finally settled down in this cozy corner of the Bella Pace sim to curl up with a few of our favorite books.

Not only a bunny-fanatic and my constant companion, Ripley also has a nose for sniffing out Fabulous Finds.  Today, he led me straight to Indyra where I discovered the newest group gift, this Kai Jacket and top in a mossy shade of green called “herb.”  It perfectly matched my Triumph Eyes in Moor from IKON, and I knew I had to have it.  Lucky for me, the Indyra Originals Fashionista Files group is free to join, so I had a new addition to my wardrobe, just like that!

A cheerful hello from Sheidey solved my next dilemma of what to pair my top with.  She had been 7 Seas fishing and offered me an extra pair of Zef jean capris she had collected from the prize-filled waters at Sn@tch.  There, you can fish for one of 20 random grab bags for free.  I’m so lucky Sheidey is such an avid fisher-woman and shared her day’s catch with me!  She inspired me to do some angling myself very soon.  I heard she also came home with a cutely-goofy looking hammerhead shark, too,….but that’s a story for another day.  The capris fit standard avatars and also come with an Omega applier for mesh bodies.

After adding a colorful Falling Leaves necklace from EarthStones and Caty wedges from KC Couture, I joined Ripley in the quest for a peaceful spot for some afternoon relaxation.  It is my wish for you that you find time to rest and recharge yourself before Monday rolls around.  Until next time, happy shopping!
