Creating Curb Appeal

Snapshot_006Hi there Fabulous Folks!  I am switching things up today and am showing you some décor items instead of clothing.  I came across a few cute things this weekend that I thought you all might like to hear about.  Perhaps you’ll find something you like to spruce up your home in Second Life!

Come On In!

The build you see in my photo is Ranger Rick’s Office which is part of The Hive’s Arcade Gacha offering at 50L per play.  To the side of the doorsteps you’ll find a couple of items made by The Ruddy Duck Co. (one of them a dollarbie!), and on the steps a group gift by JIAN and Zen Creations which are both free to join.

JIAN Kitty Shark Bed:

This adorable item is just 2 prims to rez and includes the sleeping kittens inside the bed.  Both kittens are texture change as well as the bed and as it is copy, you can rez out as many as you like. You can find this as a free group gift at JIAN with a free group join.

Zen Creations Cape Cod Candles:

The Cape Cod Candles are the latest group gift at Zen Creations.  This décor piece is 7 prims and is copy/mod so that you are able rez as many as you like and edit the colour and size to your liking.  The Zen Creations group is free to join.

Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

Peace & More Mojitos

Snapshot_013
Hey there Fabulouses!

This is a short and sweet post today, but I wanted to make sure I stopped in to tell you about a couple of FabFree worthy items I found – one a dollarbie on marketplace and the other a fun group gift!

My Favourite Colour!!!

I feel like I have been showing a ton of swimwear lately, and well I guess it is the season, but I found another fabulous 2pc swimsuit called Scandal you should know about.  It’s in my favourite colour (blue!), and is so pretty with the ruffled top and strappy boycut bottoms.  This set is available for just 1L in the Dusti’s Odds n Ends Marketplace Store!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Werewolf

More Mojitos

I can’t believe that I am holding a mojito in my hand again so soon after my wild ride of a girls night with Pru [HERE] and then ugh [HERE], but the new Preocupada Bento Pose by Reel Poses that comes with the floatie and bevvie is the latest group gift, and inspired me to give it another go.  The group is just 30L to join.

PEACE!

Nautically Inclined

Nautically Inclined

Ships Ahoy! Look out for land! I admit in real life I never learned to swim, but that never kept me off the boats. I’ve always had a love for boats and everything nautical! I love to fish, rather it be small ponds or deep sea fishing. And you’ll never catch me passing up a boat ride. So this outfit I ran across today, had me really smiling!

Ready to sail.

I’m ready for sailing weather, or even to sit dockside, in my new Sailing Day Outfit by Tam. It only cost me 1L and a little hunting time as part of the June Effects Hunt. I went to the Tam main-store and hunted down the little life preserver and the shorts and top were mine!

It comes in a variety of sizes including:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS- XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Worth mentioning!

It’s over the 75L limit, but I know you’ll forgive me when you see the deal that I got on my hair! I stopped by the Hairology event which began on June 10th and visited the EMO-tion’s booth. Hair at this booth is 50% off, and I picked up my new Claudia hairstyle for just 122L per pack. It was such a good deal that I wanted to share it with you, even if it was over the usual limit, in case you are a hair fanatic like moi!

Backside

Snapshot_001In my days as a skateboarder, they used to call me “Backside” because the 180 backside was my best trick…  Ok…  truth be told, I had no tricks and they called me “Backside” because that’s where I always landed in attempts.  These fun skater poses by [west end] are currently being featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and reminded me of the fun I used to have “trying to skateboard”!

Everything Is Coming Up Roses

GFFloral
I feel like a flower in the garden wearing this pretty pink rose printed dress by AdoreZ that I picked up at The Garage Fair.

Will You Accept This Rose?

The Mabel Flower Dress comes in several sizes as listed below so I am sure you’ll find a size to fit you, and the best part is…  it’s just 1L!  There are a few of those barrels sitting around at the AdoreZ display at The Garage Fair, so take care when you are looking for this dress that you check for the one that is priced at 1L and check the contents first.  The others are barrels are priced at 10L and I haven’t checked them out yet, but if this dress is any indication, I am sure they are great too.

Sizes included:

  • XS-XL Mesh
  • XS-XL Fit Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

Eye Candy

FurtacorGarageFair
Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I am still happily unboxing gifts and dollarbies that I have picked up at The Garage Fair.  Last night I opened up the 1L item by Furtacor and was very pleasantly surprised with this sexy little summer dress.

For Just 1L…

You too can own the Furtacor Candy Dress as shown on my avatar for just one little linden by visitng the Furtacor display at The Garage Fair.  This dress comes in mesh (with alpha), fitmesh and Slink specific body sizes and has a texture change hud with 30 different top and skirt combinations and three options for lace.  I went with the black floral print for both the top and the skirt, but you can choose textures for the top and skirt separately.  There are tons of solids and prints to choose from if flowers aren’t your thing.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XXS – L Fitmesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Going Dotty

Gone Dotty_001

Going dotty.

I’m dotty for this gorgeous applier top that I hunted down at House of Ruby as part of The Evil Bunny Hunt. It was only 1L and well worth looking around the main-store for! There’s a male prize in the box too, if you fellas want to get in on the hunting action!

This is an applier top and comes in the following appliers: Maitreya, Omega, and Slink.

Hop on down to House of Ruby and pick up your Mellow top in Dot today! You have until the end of April to hunt it down!
