Miss Mermaid


Mermaid

Down in the depths of the ocean! Or perhaps just under the water at Mermaid Cove, that’s where I found this fun mermaid gacha by NYNE that I am excited to share with you. I also picked up a free group gift by Sweet Thing, and a free gift by Shiny Stuffs while swimming through the underwater shopping at Mermaid Cove.

NYNE Miss Mermaid Gacha

Mermaid Cove is definitely a cool shopping event, well worth the visit just to see all the fanciful underwater scenery. For this mermaid themed event NYNE put out a colorful mermaid themed gacha that is just 69 linden per pull. **Please be sure that if you play this gacha you play for the size/fit you want.** I played the Slink Hourglass option so my mermaid tail and starfish would fit my Slink Hourglass body. The rare tale comes with mermaid animations that seemed to work when walking, but better when flying. I’ll include a gacha key for this Mermaid Cove gacha by NYNE below.

The necklace includes a color change hud with a few preset colors for the ribbon and some for the shell also. It’s the perfect mermaid accessory!

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

At #bubbles you’ll find mostly mesh ladies clothing in trendy styles, that are sometimes cheeky, but always stylish. The #bubbles shop is open and inviting, as suggested with the “hello” sign welcoming you at the entrance. Also at the entrance you’ll find the “wall of information” where you can do things like join the store group or get a link the #bubbles flickr page.

Cynful #bubbles

Cynful #bubblesHello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here sharing the freebie love with you! Today’s post features my favorite type of shirt, sweaters/sweatshirts, and my favorite style of necklace, a choker. It’s not often that the two items look well together, but I think it made it work! I hope you like them.

For me one of the best things about fall is it’s generally the beginning of sweater weather. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for me this year in real life, it’s still a tad too warm for sweaters. Thankfully I get to retreat to Second Life and enjoy the sweaters anyway. This particularly cute sweater is a FREE group gift at #bubbles. Included in the gift you’ll find this sweater in several fitmesh sizes, and body specific sizes. I think the off-the-shoulder style of this sweater from #bubbles makes it extra cute!

The choker Pru is wearing is another group gift, this time from Cynful. This particular gift is a thank-you gift for all the awesome Cynful Clothing & Co. customers and group members. The mesh choker/collar has a hud that allows you to change the wording between various empowering words like “strength” or “slay”. While using the hud you can also change the metal color of the word, as well as the color of the choker. This playful piece of jewelry is FREE to all group members, and the Cynful group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!

It’s Called Vitiligo

Love Your Skin

Happy July 4th to all who celebrate! I’m always excited to share new freebies with my Fab Free family, however I’m extra excited about the most recent subscriber gift from E. Vary. I’ve also come across some fun patriotic items from #bubbles and KC Couture to help get into the spirit of the day while still looking fabulous!Love Your Skin 2I have been so eager to show this gorgeous “Winnie” skin from E. Vary since I found out about it! For those of you who aren’t sure what this skin is about, the skin condition is called Vitiligo which causes skin cells to lose their pigmentation creating these random patches of pigment-less skin. The name “Winnie” is inspired by the real life model Winnie Harlow whom is a high fashion model with Vitiligo. The purpose of this truly striking skin is to raise awareness of the condition and promote a positive image. You’ll find this FREE subscriber gift at the E. Vary main location. Just join the subscriber, if you haven’t already, then click the vendor photo. In the package you’ll find the Winnie skin in 3 tones. There is a system skin layer in each tone, 2 hair base options, 4 shapes, an Omega applier for Catwa, Slink, Eve, and other Omega compatible heads, as well as an Omega body applier in each skin-tone. Don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift from E. Vary!

Now I couldn’t very well let the 4th of July pass by without a fun patriotic look. This super cute wrap top is on sale for a limited time at #bubbles for just 49 lindens. If the U.S. flag doesn’t do it for ya, not to worry, there’s are solid red, white, or blue options available as well! Each version of this cute mesh top includes standard mesh sizes, fit mesh,  as well as fit sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. I think this top from #bubbles is the perfect style top for a fun day in the sun on this summer holiday.

To match my cute top from #bubbles I continued with my patriotic theme and added these detailed wedge sandals from KC Couture. After all, how often do you get to pull off red white and blue?! These FREE gift shoes are available just outside the KC Couture main store, at the landing point. You can’t miss the giant vendor board, you’ll also see a cool pair of men’s chucks available.  To get these too cute shoes, you’ll need to join the KC Couture group, which is FREE to join. Once wearing your tag, just click the vendor and the shoes are yours. The package includes a Maitreya fit, Slink fit, Eve Fit, Belleza fit, and TMP fit shoes. I really cannot express how cute these shoes are on, not to mention it’s not often I find a FREE shoe gift with all  these fit options!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
