Holographic Honey

Holography Honey

I’ve had conversations with people about the awesomeness that is holographic clothing.  I’ve probably expounded my beliefs several times here on the blog about it all, and I’m sure you’re all sick to death of me singing the praises of anything vaguely reflective and purpleish.  I just get all the vibes of magic, the seaside and the 80’s all wrapped into one awesome little package, and since those are three of my favourite things, I don’t see how it could possibly be a bad thing.

A Little Taste of Magic

Caboodle have just put up a really sweet gift on Marketplace for just 1L.  You get this beautiful holographic dress that slips ever so sultrily off the shoulders.  It also features an A-Line skirt, which you may have guessed I approve of heartily because of the name.  Well, and the shape is pretty awesome too.  To get yours, just head over to Caboodle’s Marketplace store and it will be yours!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

This Way

Mosquito’s Way are at it again with a cute pair of shoes for FREE!  These adorable purple booties are yet another knock-it-out-of-the-park monthly group gift.  They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.  To get yours, just join the Mosquito’s Way inworld group for FREE, and they’ll be yours for the taking!

You really can’t say no to purple, amirite?

The Perennial Maximalist

The Perennial Maximalist

Everyone always talks about simplicity.  I am a proponent of this on certain days, to be sure,  however sometimes what one needs to be is a maximalist.   There’s nothing wrong with surrounding yourself with your favourite things.  I like a good overflowing collection of pretty baubles, or being surrounded by all the glitter and gorgeousness I can muster.   You know, like a deep pile rug and vases full of marabou feathers and just one more lip gloss.  The aging, weathered glamour calls out to me sometimes, or perhaps it’s just a little pvc skirt and a new hairstyle!

Smug as Can Be

Mug has a new group gift out!  This extremely mini PVC skirt is slightly insane in all the right ways.  You can make it into the perfect weird outfit with just a bit of imagination.  You’ll most probably need a little layer underneath though if you’re planning on not shocking the neighbours.  To get your own little skirt, just join the Mug group for 250L and head on over to the shop and click on the vendor.  There are a bunch of other gifts there while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Sking

Nothing But the Truth

Time for a new VIP gift from Truth!  Horizon is a long messy ponytail with several different bang options.  You can add or remove the bobby pins too to make this look all your own.  And as always with Truth VIP hairstyles, it’s a full fatpack of colours!  You can get yours by joining the Truth VIP group for 350L and then taking a peek in group notices for your copy!

Here’s to maximalism!

Cinnamon Candy

Cinnamon Candy

I know I’m a bit late for the Lunar New Year but I just stumbled across this great little Hunt going on at the shops of Solara. This is a fun little hunt you can do in one sitting but you’ll still bag some great loot. So let’s celebrate the Lunar New Year Hunt!

Red Hot Cinnamon Candy

Remember those? With today being Valentines Day, you might have had few of ’em already. And I feel like a ‘Red Hot’ in this sweet red outfit. I put this look together from two different prize gifts from Caboodle: the holo-rific Cassi Tee and the Jarhly Jog set pants. The Cassi tee comes in shades of holo glimmer Purple, Lemon-Lime, Mermaid Blue and the Rose Gold I’m wearing. The pants are from a two piece set: The Jarhly Jog set which is super cute on it’s own.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Lunar New Year Hunt at Solara only runs until February 19th so don’t delay.

Holographically Happy

Holographically Happy

I’ve probably talked about the importance of all things holographic a million times.  I do have a penchant for things with a pretty pearlescent sheen, and the purveyor of all great things holo-cute in SL is without a doubt Caboodle.  Guess what….you can grab some holo awesomeness for FREE!  Eep!

Happy New Year!

First things first, let me wish a happy Lunar New Year to all those out there celebrating!  I hope that the new year brings much luck and joy (and little red envelopes!) to you all.  To celebrate, Caboodle and all the other stores on sim are hosting a really fun mini hunt!  Just head on over and find the little red envelopes (you can read the clues HERE) and buy for 0L.  I got some really cute stuff, but because I’m so into holographic prettiness, I decided to show you this cute off the shoulder dress.  And yup, it’s FREE!  Don’t delay, this hunt runs until February 19th!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Happy Lunar New Year!

Aline and the Holograms

Aline and the Holograms

I’m sorry…did someone say HOLOGRAPHIC?  Because I am all about anything that shimmers, shines and even bears a passing resemblance to the love of my life in the 80’s – Jem and the Holograms.  You heard me, I’m all about the big hair, the massive earrings and anyone whose name is Jerrica.  That’s like Jessica, but with R’s!  Come on now, how can you say no to that?  Ok fine, maybe it needs a little toning down, but….really, only just a little!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Have you heard the buzz around the SL Frees and Offers 1st Annual hunt?  It’s big folks, and there are lots of fab designers participating, and loads of prizes to get your mitts on!  I’m showing off the really awesome holographic sweater by Caboodle (purveyors of all things shiny).  Just head on over to their store, and look around for the fall leaf that is hiding somewhere in the store.  The sweater inside is completely free, has three different colour options, and comes sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya bodies.

While on the hunt, I also came across these fantastic shoes by Ch’s (also completely FREE!).  I love the buttons up the side.  Very military-inspired and completely and utterly adorable.  I love them.  There’s an HUD included with a boatload of colour options, and they come sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Good luck!

Ain’t That the Truth

Here comes the next offering from Truth!  This month’s group gift is a really lovely and undone braid called Ciara.  Very sweet and soft.  If braids aren’t your thing, the stylist HUD has the option of turning it into a messy bun.  I do love a good stylist HUD!  As always, the Truth VIP hairstyle comes with a whole fatpack of colours.  If you haven’t joined yet, it’s 350 L, which is extremely reasonable, and SUCH a good deal.  Join the group and check in notices to pick up your own copy!

Until next time!

A place in the sun

A place in the sun

Pretty sunshine and a cute outfit…I mean, it’s not the beach but it’s still pretty great!

The whole kit and Caboodle

Caboodle’s store name always makes me think of that saying. I’m not really going anywhere with that…it just does. ANYWAY, this super cute top is the newest free group gift from Caboodle. It’s seriously sooooo adorable. It’s cropped just perfect and the texture is fab and the little flowers along the bottom are just the right finishing touch. This shirt comes sized just for Maitreya and Hourglass, and with a HUD that lets you change the color of the flowers, the trim, and the shirt itself independently. There are a bunch of pretty pastel shades and some of them have a really cool metallic kind of sheen to them. Caboodle is 50L to join and there’s a wall of really well done group gifts available behind the desk when you enter the store.

I’m an Urban Farmer

I don’t even know what that means, but it’s the name of these great pants that I’m wearing. My subtitles are really lacking tonight. The pants that I’m referring to are a free group gift from Loordes of London and the group is free to join. I popped over to grab the FabFree group gift sandals (which I’m not wearing) and came away with so much more. It’s the story of my SLife, but at least they were free in this case! I just love the cute style and it comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

 

Oh one last thing – my pose is technically a freebie as well. It’s by IOS but it’s the unpack pose from Euphoric and you can get it for free by going and grabbing the group gifts that Aline posted about here the other day. I’m such a pose hoarder, surely I’m not the only one who saves and uses cute unpack poses? Or maybe I am. Don’t answer that.

Serial Chiller

Serial Chiller
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I sincerely hope everyone is having a good week so far. For me, today is a total laundry day. Not so lazy but definitely a day for something comfy and casual to wear while folding clothes and lugging the laundry basket around. The newest group gift at gO! is perfect for a day like this. For a little fun I also picked up the most recent group gift at Caboodle, and lasts but never least the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid. I hope you like my cute laundry day look!

Serial Chiller

I simply could not resist this group gift outfit from gO!. I love the details in the over-sized slashed and slouchy shirt, as well as the comfy looking capri style pants. I also like the phrase “Serial Chiller”, it’s not a play-on-words that I often hear. Let’s just say it suits me! The gift comes in this singe group exclusive color with several mesh sizes. You will need to join the gO! in world group, which has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Meow Kitty Ears Meow

I think I’ve mentioned before that very early in my Second Life I was Neko, and while I no longer don ears and a tail on a regular basis I’m always a sucker for cute kitty ears. Caboodle’s new group gift just so happens to be this pair of adorable kitty ears complete with wraps and bows. The ears have a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of the inside fur, outside fur, bows, and wraps. The Caboodle group has a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

Feline Eyes

As luck would have it the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid is a set of beautiful sunset inspired feline eyes. They are a FREE exclusive group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The group is always FREE to join. These eyes come in dark, medium, and light color versions. Pru is wearing the darkest of the 3 options. The gift includes a set of mesh eyes for each color, and appliers. To get your copy of these pretty peepers, war your Fab Free group tag and head over to Liquid.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
