Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Punk Rock Girl

A Tale of Two Cats

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the hunt trail again.  This time, the pupster and I sought out little white skulls during the Brii Underground Punk Rock Girl Hunt.  Each of the ten punk rock themed prizes in this hunt cost 1L and feature a complete outfit.   At the landing point, there is a board which displays the variety of hunt gifts and also a hint giver, which I found very useful.

Punk’s Not Dead…

…at least that’s what the Lokele t shirt claims.  The black side-knotted top features a gray, guitar-wielding skeleton, which definitely gives the shirt an edgy feel.  The asymmetrical, cropped hemline provides a sexy glimpse of your tummy.  Gray and black plaid capris with white stitching and riveted pockets coordinate beautifully with the theme of the outfit.  To wrap it all up, flat black sneakers with dark gray socks complete the look.  Quite a bit of care was taken with the amount of detail in these shoes, from the suede texture with white stitching, and the untied laces, to the herringbone-patterned soles.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh pants in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Mesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layers for top and shorts for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh pants in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Omega Lokele Make Up Catwa Head Jessica (not worn in my photo)

A New Multi Hue Updo

The edgy feel of my new outfit called for a different style hair than my usual, and the Zoe updo from EscalateD fit the bill perfectly. Completely free to Fab Free group members, this hairstyle features long tresses gathered in a large bun at the back of your head.  A few wispy strands dangle realistically down near your ears and the back of your neck.  The dark ebony hue of the hairstyle is brightened by highlights which provide vibrant pops of color.  A texture change HUD allows you to customize the base color and streak color of the highlights, offering a range of 15 colors across the rainbow spectrum.  I decided to use purple tinted eye shadow to play off the streaks in my hair.  It’s not a look I’d wear every day, but it made for a fun change up!

Ripley and I will return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

Taking a Break

Happy Middle of the Week to you, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are taking a break after spending a good part of the day in RL de-cluttering a closet.  It feels really good to organize and open up space!  Now, if only I could get motivated to do the same with my SL inventory!  After over 8 and a half years on Second Life, organizing that monstrosity is something I really need to do.  Maybe tomorrow……

I Know I Said I’d De-clutter, But…………It Was FREE!

The pupster and I decided to swing by Brii Underground to check out the latest group gift, and it is so adorable, I scooped it up immediately.  The free Linei Urban Style Complete Outfit is a comfy, body-hugging denim mini dress with tons of eye-catching details such as the realistic seams and folds in the fabric, an optional belt that draws the eye to your midsection, and the silver center zipper.   The gift also includes jewelry – the necklaces and bracelets I am wearing in my photo, and the heart-adorned heels in a perfectly coordinated shade of blue.  A pair of sunglasses, which I opted not to wear for my picture, complete the ensemble.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Belt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Necklaces, bracelets, sunglasses
  • Tattoo for classic avatars, Maitreya, Omega and Slink (not shown)
  • Omega make up applier and make up for classic avatars on the tattoo layer
  • Optional light

If only Ripley had paid more attention during the organization segment of our dog obedience classes………. Ah well, at least he excelled in tracking and bargain hunting!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just a Country Girl at Heart

A Trio of Puppies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I just finished opening the hunt gifts which Ripley and I had scoped out at the Country Girl Hunt currently running at Brii Underground, and when I saw this floral dress, I knew I had to blog it!   The event runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to head on over and do some searching for yourself.  With 10 complete outfits, all for 1L each, you won’t want to miss this hunt!

A Bohemian Country Girl

With three-quarter-length sleeves, and a skirt that falls to mid-thigh, the Lucineide dress keeps you modestly covered, but still allows a sexy glimpse of skin at your midsection.  The cheerful botannical print is complemented by purple trim, which coordinates beautifully with the boots tucked inside the prize package.  I really liked the way the skirt is softly draped. Although this frock is a perfect country-style dress with the included bandana and cowgirl hat, I decided to accessorize instead with hair beads and Gypsy bangles to create a boho-chic flair.  I was really happy with the final look.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, and L
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Boots
  • Cowgirl hat
  • Bandana
  • Sunglasses
  • Omega applier for Lucineide make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light

Kat is wearing:

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Kathy (bento)

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Moirah

Eyeliner:  Yokami Cat Eyeliner

Lipstick Applier:  Izzie’s Catwa Lipstick Applier (Aiko)

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Hair:  Magika Stay the Night

Hair Beads:  EarthStones Hemp Hair Beads – Head Wrap in Sizzle

Dress and Boots:  Brii Underground Lucineide Country Style Complete Outfit (hunt prize in Country Girl Hunt – 1L)

Bracelet:  EarthStones Tarnished Gypsy Bangles in Silver Flame

Puppies:  Glamour Poses Female 05 (I added the puppies, but did not use the pose) 35L on the Marketplace

Pose:  Le Poppycock

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!

The Meadow is Calling

The Meadow is Calling

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness today, and did some sleuthing in the Country Girl Hunt over at Brii Underground.  There are ten prizes up for grabs in this event, and each costs just one little linden dollar. The boxes even include accessories such as hats and footwear.

A Country Girl at Heart

The Keli dress is a charming shade of blue, and includes the ribboned hat, dress, and boots shown in my picture.  I love the white floral pattern sprinkled across the sleeveless frock, and the way it leaves my arms bare to soak up some sun.  The bow tied at the waistline echoes the ribbon on the hat, and provides a visual contrast to the remainder of the dress.  Blue, slouchy, high heeled boots, and thick, white socks round out the look, providing you with a complete ensemble from the crown of your head to the tips of your toes.  The package also contains Keli make up (not shown), an Omega Applier for the make up, and optional lights.  What a great bargain!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Time to Continue the Round Up

Each of the ten hunt gifts is concealed in a small, brown, rearing horse.  If you click the hunt display on the wall at Brii Underground, you will receive a note card with helpful hints for tracking down the prizes.  With 9 more ponies to corral, Ripley and I had better get a move on.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Station Inspection

Station Inspection

The One Percent…

Most of the time is spent cleaning, inspecting, training and drilling for the one percent of the time when all my skills and knowledge must come into action. When I’m “on the job” lives depend on me. People look to me to protect their property from fire damage. Some need me to lead them to safety from a burning structure. Others depend me to pull them from a wrecked vehicle. My favorite job is rescuing cats from trees. But all these jobs are important. I am a firefighter.

Honoring the working class…

In honor of Worker’s Day, Brii Underground has set a new group gift out. The Fireman Style Costume is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join. The costume consists of the fireman’s jacket and pants, each in sizes  XS-XL. And finishing the look, the package also contains boots and a helmet.

Next time you see a firefighter, police officer, or any other civil servant, thank them for what they do!

On Patrol

On Patrol

Attention…

…We are on the lookout for a stolen Jeep… Seriously, being on patrol in this part of town is not a fun shift. I’ve seen bodies, burned vehicles, vandalized buildings and that was just at the station house. I may not have the best beat to patrol, but I look my finest in the FREE group gift I found at Brii Underground. The Policeman Uniform comes in a fitted mesh size along with sizes XS-XL. Accessories include a cap, handgun and sunglasses. Now put your hands in the air ( like you just don’t care)…

Wrapped in a Warm Glow

Embrace Your Inner Orange
Hello Fabulouses! Feeling quite lucky after our last two finds in Brii Underground’s 1L Surf Girl Hunt, Ripley and I returned once more to see what else we could uncover. Thanks to the pupster’s talented nose, we came away with yet another complete outfit. Big grin!

Orange is the Happiest Color

Inside the clam shell, I discovered the bright, cheerful Lina outfit.  With a handkerchief-style, sleeveless crop top and shorts in the same vibrant pattern, this jaunty outfit is sure to leave you with lighthearted spirits and a bounce in your step.  Coordinating sandals for slink flat feet in a matching orange tone complete the look.  I love the batik print and found this ensemble perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  One added plus is that the appliers for the top and shorts are separate, which allows for the possibility of mixing and matching to create additional combinations.

Orange is the Happiest Color

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh shorts and top appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Fitmesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha Layers for classic avatars
  • Sandals for flat feet in a perfectly coordinating shade

Still Plenty of Time

The Surf Girl Hunt at Brii Underground runs through February 28th, so you still have have plenty of time to scoop up some complete outfits for yourself for only 1L each.  All the prizes Ripley and I ferreted out in this hunt were fabulous, and the shells were really not that difficult to locate.  I highly encourage you to head on over to Brii Underground and do some sleuthing yourself.   You won’t be disappointed!  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
