Easy Silence

Easy Silence

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  Ripey and I are enjoying the easy silence at Borneo Isle while we tell you about two free group gifts to get your weekend off to a fantastic start.  I think you’ll love both of them as much as I do.

Free Tresses

My loosely braided locks, called Tori, are the latest free group gift from Truth Hair for VIP members.  With a full fatpack of all colors, plus a stylist HUD, you have so many options to choose from.  Featuring long, side-swept bangs that frame each side of your face, this soft, casual hairstyle is ideal for a day of relaxing by the shore.   Although the Truth VIP group has a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks generously gifts members with a full fat-pack of a hairstyle each month.  In addition, the group chat is quite active and friendly, and I’ve picked up a number of tips and pointers.   I really look forward to reading the chat messages each day.

Casual Summer Stylin’

At Rowena’s Designs, I scooped up this adorable Angie crop top and belted shorts outfit, which is a free gift for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group.  With a floral print, spaghetti style straps, and a loosely flowing hemline, this top is sure to be a summer staple in my wardrobe from now on.  I opted for a charcoal print and black shorts, but the gift includes a color change HUD for both the top and shorts with 6 hues ranging from green, red, blue, purple, and brown as well as the black.  The shorts feature a buckled strap on the sides and a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  The snug fit of the shorts contrasts beautifully with the ruffled top.  The MGSN Group has no join fee, so you can add this cute set to your inventory completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

Love Me Like You Do

Love Me

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m so glad the weekend is finally here.  I’ve been a bit under the weather in RL, and look forward to some down time for the next couple of days where I can just take it easy.  It’s time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy!

Nothing Wrong About This 

It happened again…. my hound with a nose for fashion took advantage of me not feeling well, and slipped out of his leash while we were on our morning stroll.  I guess since I wasn’t feeling well, I wasn’t walking fast enough for him!  When I finally caught up to him as he sat waiting outside the This is Wrong Shop, he thumped his tail happily, then led me over to the gift display vendor.  He had discovered a super sexy, free group gift to share with you today.  “Love Me” frames your curves in a dark rose mini dress adorned with black lace flowers.  With straps that criss-cross in front and a deeply scooped back and tummy section, this frock allows you to flaunt your flawless skin while still providing coverage in all key areas.   The This is Wrong group currently has a 100L join fee, however, including this gorgeous dress, there are 10 group gifts available for members, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Ripley and I plan to return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nice Day for a White Wedding

White Wedding

I’m Getting Married

Lol, just kidding! (/me giggles) XD

When I saw this gorgeous dress — the latest group gift from Dressed by Lexi — I thought it would be really lovely as a wedding gown, so I decided to style it in that way.

The top comes as an Omega applier (which I used on my Maitreya mesh body with an Omega kit), but there is also a system layer for classic avatars. There is a significant amount of skin showing through the lace, making this top extra sexy. 😉

The skirt is sized for Belleza, eBody, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, as well as standard mesh S-XL with an alpha layer. The lace at the bottom is added in two flexi attachments, but you could always leave those off for a sleeker look.

My pose is a gift from An Lar Poses for the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary. Three poses with mirrors are included in the set. You have until June 5th to pick up all the fabulous gifts at this round!

IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Ooh She’s A Little Runaway

Snapshot_001

Have you heard the latest scandal? I’m running away!

OK… ok… I’m not really running away, but I do have big news about a newly released design as a freebie at Scandalize and a fatpack of hair in a lucky board Runaway!

Lucky At Runaway!

I have been wearing more and more hairstyles by Runaway lately, and while I was in there shopping I noticed that there are several group lucky boards with (:O) fatpacks of hair in them!  You’ll need to join the group to gain access to the lucky boards, however that also means you’ll also gain access to the group gifts in the shelf at the customer service desk too!  I was lucky enough to win Vanessa as shown on my avatar today.  Vanessa is a sweet volumized ponytail style with a headband and bangs.  The headband is texture change so you can match it up to your outfits.

Scandalize Offers A Free New Release!

Scandalize has recently released their new Tabitha Outfit in a whole line of colours.  As shown on my avatar, this gorgeous dress has a layered look to it and is beautifully textured.  The best news about this new release, is that you can pick up the Sia colour FOR FREE!  I don’t know how long this offer is valid, so rush down there if you like it!  Just don’t blame me if you wind up buying more colours!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis

Bunny Hop

bunny5_001ff

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! 😮

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! 😀

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

Before Dawn

Snapshot_002
Why. Is. Morning. So. Early?

As you can see…  Even on the best of days I am very much not a morning person.   Most mornings, it is pure luck if I can manage to pour a cup of coffee and return the cream to the fridge instead of the cup cupboard (has truly happened so many times).  He is up at the crack of BEFORE dawn even on the weekend, puttering around in the kitchen doing whatever he does in there (on a positive note, I do smell coffee already made 🙂 ).

The Calm Before…

Pulling the covers over my head, I try to muffle out the sounds of doors creaking, kitchen cupboards slamming, and dishes clanging.  Even the dogs are grumbling and huffing with disdain of the way too early morning activity going on.  Finally I can hear him making his way to the door and I’m thinking to  myself…  “finally. silence.”.  I hear him digging out his shoes, and taking his coat out of the closet and creeping out the back door to the man cave.

The Storm…

As the door shuts behind him, the dog leash hanging on the hook beside the door falls to the ground…  My eyes squeeze shut tight instantly knowing and bracing for what was about to happen.   ALL of the dogs jump up and run around the bedroom six times, wagging and panting, collar jingling and barking with excitement, because that is all the signal they need for “It’s time for a W.A.L.K” (I spell out the word walk to avoid the craziness,  but they have learned to spell it out).  I tried calling for him, but he had already made his way out of earshot.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, I pick up the littlest one before she gets trampled on in the pre-W.A.L.K mayhem, dig up some clothes and head out for what is hopefully a very uneventful walk…  Gooood morning!

Back To Bed In My NEW Group Gift?

With any luck I’ll be able to slip back into my comfy new night shirt for another hour or two of sweet dreams when I get back.  I picked up the Miranda Chemise Group Gift at !gO! as a group gift.  The !gO! group tends to do a handful of gifts a year and on occasion sends out instore credit offers, so the 50L join fee was no issue for me!  I have found it has more than made up for it.

Available Sizes:

  • Standard Fitmesh & Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

Top Notch

SnatchorismHey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🙂  I am popping in real quick to share news with you about another Sn@tch freebie that I thought was a great basic addition to my inventory.

The Royal Rococo Bodysuit is available in the Cheap & Free section at Sn@tch (just inside the entrance doors to the right.), priced at…  you guessed it – 0L!  This bodysuit comes in 8 different colours and includes the mesh sleeves which you can wear, or leave off if you like.  As this is an applier (Slink & Omega compatible)/system layer design, it’s fantastic for layering under jackets or sweaters.  The colours are vibrant, and the texturing, top-notch!
