No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Break from Beaudelaire

A Break from Beaudelaire

I’m feeling a bit collegiate today.  Perhaps the changing leaves are bringing me back to days spent in the quad with piles of books and a mug of Earl Grey tea, the library not too far off as I delved into tomes of Beaudelaire and Dante.  I think that this precise moment is the one where you have had just about enough of deciphering the depths of literature, and you just need to let go for a little while.  I think that moment came pretty often for me!

500 is an Excellent Sum

Blueberry are at it again!  This time, they’re showering their group members with 500L in store credit.  How nice is that?  You can use it to buy anything you like in the store, and the entire store is 50% off until the 14th.  I picked up the Blessed jacket, skirt and top which were just 125L each, leaving me a bit of coin left over for something else.  You can get your own store credit by joining the Blueberry group for 20L, then peeking in group notices.  Once you add the HUD and click, the store credit will be added to your account and you can buy what you like in store.   Yay!

Soon, It Will Be Slothoween!

It's Almost Slothoween

Hello there, Fab Free! With the new month, we have a bunch of hunts that got started, and I eagerly hit the trail of The Boo Bunny Hunt this week. My favorite prize of all is this adorable tank top. It makes me smile every time I see it, and I picked it up for just a small fee (plus a bit of time spent searching).

I’ll Do it Tomorrow…

…at least that’s what I imagine the sweet-faced critter on my new shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. might be saying as he gives us a friendly wave. The Slothoween Tee features a cute creature lounging atop a carved pumpkin, brightly colored autumn leaves, and a crescent moon in a star-filled sky. The vibrant colors really pop against the dark background! With its narrow shoulder straps and slightly cropped hem, I’d be grabbing a jacket in real life when wearing this top, but hey, this is SL, and it’s all good 🙂 The prize folder contains an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for a variety of mesh body types. Each item in The Boo Bunny Hunt costs one Linden dollar, and you’ll be searching for pieces of wrapped candy. You have until Slothoween, er I mean Halloween, to collect some amazing prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Life is Gourd

Jack O’Lanterns Shining Bright

Over at satus Inc., I found these Halloween Pumpkin Earrings that were the perfect accessory for my outfit as a free group gift. They come in gold, green, and red, and are sized for female and male avatars. While in the shop, I also picked up an older free group gift to round out my look – charcoal-colored Stella Leggings. Inside the folder, you’ll find sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body types. There is a 25 Linden dollar join fee for the satus Inc. group, but with thirty-two (yes thirty-two!) other group gifts, it’s well worth the price.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hiya, happy hump day 🙂 Slipping in a quickie, something to lounge in this weekend.

For The Boobs

Another year of the Rock Your Rack Event. (Oct.2,2021-Oct.17,2021) A most worthy cause I truly support. The event has live music, fashion shows, booths to shop, beautifully decorated areas. Plus a hunt, look for the black and pink hanger in the designer’s booth. All hangers can be bought for 10L each. 100% of the sales from the hangers go to charity. Jacx is modeling 2 items from the hunt. Starting with Alaskametro Starlet Lace Bodysuit,(sized for Omega Appliers, Tattoo Layer, System Top & Bottom Layer) in shocking pink for 10L. (psst while at the booth grab the free wearable testers for the lips.) Next up, you guessed it! Shoes. LOL. Gabrielle Hamelin has the sweetest pair of heels for 10L, the GH October Pink Heeled Bow Pumps, ticking all my boxes. Open toe, pink & gold flowers on the side, a dusting of gold on the back, black shoe body, and a black bow, and like the name says, a pink heel.  Included is a small hud with bow on/off, shine on/off.

  • Belleza

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time,

Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Crisp Breeze and Dancing Leaves

Happy Last Day of September, Fabulous Readers!  The month flew by for me, and it’s hard to believe it will be October tomorrow.  Today’s post features a free camisole top that I opted to pair with a jacket because of the cooler fall temperatures.  That being said, I think it would also work well worn by itself or coupled with an overshirt.

Crisp and Clean

I love the contrasting hues in my outfit today.  If opposites are not your cup of tea, my new tank top from Arata Shouten will coordinate well with just about anything because you can easily edit the color.  The folder includes two options for the camisole, a white and a gray tint that you can customize by right-clicking and selecting edit.  After that, you’re limited only by the colors of the rainbow!  I decided to stick with a bright white, but the sky’s the limit.  Best of all, I picked it up for a grand total of zero Linden dollars and I didn’t need to join a group.  The top is BOM, so you have to have a mesh body with BOM enabled to be able to wear it.

Until next time, I wish you days full of crisp breezes and colorful dancing leaves.  🙂

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Recharging The Batteries

Second Life mirrors RL in many ways, one being the hurry, hurry, ding, ding (as my mom used to call it.) Trying to get to the event that is full, the next sale, picking up GG’s. TP here, TP there. You know what I’m saying. Right? Jacx is taking time in her garden to relax and unwind, in a bright neon sweatshirt to lift her spirts. The sweatshirt is the free September GG, that comes with a 6 neon color hud. This shirt is from a new to me creator -Slackr. Group fee 50L to join, with other gifts available.

Stand Out and Blend In

Stand Out and Blend In

I’ve got a quick post for you today, FabFree!  If you’re looking to blend into the environment….or more likely stand out… It’s all about camouflage!

A Departure

Belle Époque have got a new cute group gift out – this awesome top and skirt in a very striking camouflage-esque pattern.  I think it works in lots of different situations, from a brunch out with the girls to a fun date.  You can make it your own!   The top and skirt can also be worn separately so you can mix and match with jeans or with a white tank if you prefer to break up the pattern.  The Belle Époque group is 10L to join, and there are several gifts out for you to grab while you’re at it, with new ones being added rather regularly!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Have a great one, FabFree!

Here Kitty, Kitty – Meow

Nerido Meow Overall Sat Sale 8/21/2021

I confess to being a cat lover. I grew up with many cats around and have a silly kitty these days. Like Aline, I am a lover of anything cat. My blanket covered kitty, Romper, (he wanted to keep napping) has to nap with me.

Meow, Meow

When I saw Nerido‘s offer for The Saturday Sale I had to scramble over to scoop it up! The Meow Overall is on sale for $75/color; there are a number of colors to choose from. For me, it’s usually pink. These overalls have a kitty face print on the bib, white paw prints on the right leg, and straps/belt with the word Meow & hearts. Great way to show kitty love!

Today’s hairstyle, Vita, is a gacha prize at Fabia. The gachas are set at $25/pull. Get em while they’re hot; it’s a great way to stock up on hair.

Feeling meowy today I also added these cute kitty ears headband I picked up as a gift from [t2p] a couple of weeks ago. It is sold in the store for $99 L – just in case you’re in the mood for more cat!
