New Horizons

If you were reading carefully the last few days, maybe you will have noticed Love mention that I was a Renegade Time Lady HERE.

I’ve been traveling the vortex on and off for the past 7 years, and along the way I’ve picked up a lot of great gifts.  The most recent ones are a little Rock n Roll, a little crazy, and just look cool.  Now where can I get these glasses in RL?

 Cynfully Sweet

This hot little dress is a great find from Cynful, perfect for landing on alien planets or just hanging out in my TARDIS, plus it’s free! They’ve got a bunch of really nice group gifts on the wall there, and the group is 0L to join.  You can’t say no to that!

Sizes

Freya
Isis
Venus
Maitreya
Hourglass
Physique

1975….or anywhere in time and space

I just LOVE these glasses from Since 1975 .  They are such a great addition to my ever-growing sunglasses collection (it’s a bit of a disease, I’ve got a massive collection in RL too).  They’re just perfect for keeping the rays of dying stars at bay.  The group at Since 1975  is free to join, making these puppies free!

Phew.  Time for a rest!  Or is that the cloister bell I hear ringing?

A Timelady’s work is never done!

Just Waiting Around…

Endless Waiting

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  Ripley and I had quite an adventure last night that involved a check engine light, a tow truck, and an excruciating wait at a garage for a mechanic that moved as slow as molasses in January.  After hours of tapping our toes, we were finally able to get back on the road, but it made for a very long day, indeed.

Leather Jacket

While we remained on stand-by in the brisk November air, I was glad to have my cozy jacket from Mad Cat Crreations to ward off the chill.  With a double layered lapel, rolled back cuffs, and a snug-fitting waist buckle, I was cloaked in comfort.  A gleaming zipper helped to insulate me and seal out the breeze trying to work its way through to my bones.  One thing I really enjoy about this coat is the way it nipped in at the waistline and emphasized my curves.  The best part – this fall essential only cost 1L and a bit of searching time in The Jerky Turkey Hunt.  To pick up one for yourself, teleport over to Mad Cat Crreations and locate the orange feather concealed in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

It’s Time for a Pity Party

Ripley and I had discovered another hunt prize, the Spiked Collar from Ama. that coordinated perfectly with my outfit.  An offering for the Pity Party at the Doll House Hunt, this neck wear comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the rhinestones set into the black leather band.  After searching around the store, the pupster located the hunt object, (a small pink dollhouse).  I paid 10L, then happily scooped up my new bauble.  You can see a close up of it in the image below (along with my face when I received the bill from the mechanic).  Although I enjoy being without a monthly car payment, maybe it’s time to search for a new vehicle…

And then You Get the Bill

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

A Cynfully Sweet Summer Night

Cynfully Sweet

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  Ripley and I have a few lovely gifts to share with you today…. one of them is available for a limited time only, so if you like it, please act quickly.

A Time Sensitive Top

My cute, Ness cropped top is quite time sensitive, so if you are interested in scooping it up, I’d suggest teleporting to the Cynful booth at the Les Fest as soon as possible.  I just discovered that the event ends today.  This location has an adult rating, so in order to pick up the gift, you will have to be able to visit an adult area in SL.  With a realistic texture and slender shoulder straps, this free knotted shirt  will pair beautifully with a long skirt, as I have chosen for my outfit, or a pair of shorts for a more casual look.  I opted for a neutral gray solid hue, but the gift includes a HUD which offers you a choice of solid, print or ombre textures in a variety of tones.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Long Wavy Tresses

My hair today is another of the many free gifts you can gather at the SL14B Community Celebration.  Available at the Alice Project booth, the Mercedes II hair is a lovely center parted hairstyle.  The package includes a basics HUD with 15 texture options ranging from the white I chose to wear, blonde, red, brown or black to the more exotic aqua, light blue, and pink.  I love this simple, wavy hairdo.  It’s so feminine and soft.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cynful Cereal Killer

Cereal KillerHello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.

Anxiety Group Gift Choker 

The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.

Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress

Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

Cynfully Pretty In Purple and Pink

Photo 7
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  After a long work week, how about treating yourself to start your weekend?  Ripley and I uncovered some Fantastic Finds that will leave you feeling indulged and pampered.

She’s Got a Brand New Dress

Cynful, the first stop on our “pick me up” journey, has a free, pink to purple ombre Cynnosence dress for the Cynful Group (free to join).  The gift also comes with another version, which is a pink to deep-pink ombre.  With its curve-hugging design, this mini is ideal for some Friday night fun.

Mesh Body Appliers Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Keep Calm and Polish On

Next, I switched to my Fab Free Group tag, and popped on over to ZOZ.   Here, you can spoil yourself with a new, free manicure, which is free just for Fabulously Free in SL group members.  The “Faded Winter” slink nail polish applier contains 9 glossy hues from warm reds to cool blues.  You can find the vendor picture here so you can take a peek at all the options available.

Add a Little Bling and Final Touches

For only 10L, I added a bit of whimsy with Zyn’s Vintage Mood Ring.  This playful trinket changes colors, and even includes a color interpretation chart.  It was fun to check to see what the different color combinations represented.  Ripley got a little nervous when he noticed that the ring was red in this picture (it’s supposed to represent anger), but I assured him I wasn’t upset at all.  Silly boy!

After slipping on a pair of strappy sandals from Basta! Footwear, a touch of glossy lipstick from Arte, and Catwa eyeliner from Izzie’s, I felt rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready for the weekend.  It is my sincere hope that you will take time to indulge yourself, and do more of what makes you happy.  You deserve it, wonderful readers!  Until next time, happy shopping!

You Were Always on My Mind

Always Thinking Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share with you an almost complete look that I think is not only fantastically cute, but Fabulously inexpensive. I’m really pleased with how this look came together. I love the colors, and I think it’s a cute casual look for the cooler weather. Not to mention there’s something essential about a hoodie for the fall.

Cynful Clothing Co. recently switched out the items in their lucky boards. If you’ve never been to Cynful, the store has several group only lucky boards all with quality women’s clothing. The mustard yellow hoodie Pru has on is one of the several FREE lucky board prizes to be had at Cynful. It’s fully mesh and comes with an optional zipper attachment for added detail, as well as a color change hud to adjust the color of the inner shirt, the hood strings, and the zipper attachment. The hoodie is technically a dress, and it is long enough to be worn without pants.
Thinking AlwaysWhen I first put this hoodie dress on, I knew I wanted to wear leggings and boots with it. It gives the look of a comfortable casual outfit while still being stylish. These applier leggings are a Marketplace dollarbie by Offline. I couldn’t ask for the colors in these patterned leggings to match more perfectly with the hoodie, and I really like the sort of bohemian feel the leggings give the complete look. In the package you’ll find a classic system layer, an Omega applier, a Belleza applier, and an “All in One” applier with options for Lena, Phat Azz, Wowmeh, Banned, Ghetto Booty, and Banned.

For a final touch I added this pretty purple nail polish by Hello Dave. Sometimes I like my manicure to very obviously match my outfit, and other times I like it to stand out a little. This pretty shade of deep purple compliments the mustard yellow in the outfit very well. You’ll find this FREE manicure/pedicure in one of the 3 FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gifts at Hello Dave. As previously shown here, this lovely color is part of the palate of sold polish colors. The nail applier hud works with omega compatible  and Slink hands. To get these specific freebies at Hello Dave, you’ll want to wear you Fabulously Free in SL group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Just Keep Swimming

Snapshot_007
Hello FabFree!  Just swimming by to show off my new Chain Bikini in Purple that I picked up as a free lucky board prize at Cynful!  Yes…  I did say swimming lol, not surfing. This is how I swim 🙂 … I hate getting my face wet.  Swimming on a board, is the best of both worlds…  the cool water (in places you want it), and the hot sun!  This would actually be even better if I had a handsome man pulling me around.  That would free up my hands for a beer!  Why didn’t I think of that…

I have been trying for a good couple weeks to win this prize, and I was not disappointed by the quality!  This hot bikini comes in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza, but also included is XXS – L sizes in standard mesh for those still on system bodies or other mesh bodies.

You will need to join the group to take advantage of the Cynful Lucky Board offers, however the group is free to join – so no worries 😉

Hey Bae!

Snapshot_003
Hi there Fabulous Readers!  This past weekend, I spend much of it doing just this…  sitting on the patio in a chair just enjoying the sun 🙂  I only wish I had this adorable and very comfy looking Hey Bae Shorts & T-Shirt Set that I picked up as a free group gift at Cynful today.  This set comes in the pink/blue dip dyed version that I am showing in my photo and is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies.  On the back of the shirt and shorts it reads…  “Good vibes only”.   The Cynful inworld group is free to join – and they have mentioned that they plan to offer bi-monthly group gifts!

I haven’t taken a front on photo of it, so I am also including the vendor ad below.

You may have noticed my face is looking a little different than normal today. I switched up my usual head and skin today to show off the new Catwa Applier Insol gacha offering at the new round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  On my Catwa Annie Mesh Head, I am wearing the Insol Ilona skin applier that is just 75L per play.    There are 14 commons and 2 rares.  I believe…  if I remember correctly, that I am wearing #13 – which is a common.  It offers a very simple look with freckles and glossy lips.Snapshot_007
