She’s a Happy Camper

A Happy Camper

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In the midst of holiday shopping, Rip and I decided to take a break over at Etchaflesh.  A few days ago, in my post [HERE], the pupster and I featured a stylish vest we picked up at the store, and we decided to return today to camp awhile.  We were very well rewarded!

Pick Your Poison

While Ripley happily gnawed on a bone, I relaxed for just 35 minutes in one of the plush chairs arranged along the back wall of the store.  Right when the time elapsed, this cozy Poison sweater joined my inventory.  In addition to the knitted pullover, the free prize package included a HUD with 15 color choices for changing up the texture of the arms.  Featuring a scooped neck line, long sleeves, and a realistic ribbed texture, this sweater is destined to become a winter wardrobe staple for me.  I appreciated its generous length, which ensured my tummy stayed toasty warm.

What’s Included:

  • fitted mesh
  • standard sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • alpha layers for both mesh styles
  • Texture HUD for the sleeves

Poison

Avoiding a Cuff Malfunction

I wanted to don a pair of boots to wear while romping with Ripley through the snowy climate of It All Starts With a Smile.  The only problem was the bottom edge of my pants poked right through the sides of my boots …. one of those dreaded SL wardrobe mishaps that never occurs in real life.  After a quick perusing of the Marketplace, I netted this Purrrvy Skinny Jeans applier from the IGNOTO store for only 25L.  Although I applied the jeans on my Maitreya Lara mesh body, they are also designed for Belleza, Slink, and Omega.  With a flattering fit, detailed stitching, and a dark denim wash, these jeans are perfect for casual wear, or they can be easily dressed up with the right layers and shoes.  Best of all, they behave themselves, and don’t project through my boots.  Yay!

As you can see in my photo, Ripley and I have a few packages to deliver before nightfall, so we’d better get pedaling.  Until next time, happy shopping!

I Only Wanna Be With You

I Just Wanna Be With You
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Are you ready for winter like I am?  As the days of November ticked by, I found myself itching to frolic in a winter wonderland.  Although in real life, I never mastered an axel, a spiral, or I’ll be honest, even just a simple crossover, in SL, I glide along with all the moves of a figure skating champion.  Today’s outfit, with its flared skirt and icy, gray tones inspired Ripley and I to travel to this frozen pond on the Twilight Moon sim, but I’m getting a bit ahead of myself.

Mania at Midnight

Time and time again, I keep returning to the Entice store to check out their latest releases.  Currently, the no-group-required free Midnight Mania board is offering the “Be With You” dress.  This frock features short sleeves with a slightly scalloped edge, and a wide leather belt, in addition to the mid-thigh length skirt.  It comes complete with a color-change HUD, which allows you to modify the textures of the top, skirt, and belt individually.  This offers a myriad of possible combinations!  I opted for a black top, white belt, and a dark, printed skirt to contrast vividly against the white snow and ice.  For finishing touches, I added a glistening Snow Flurry Pearl necklace from EarthStones, and laced on a pair of ice skates from V-Style that I picked up for only 30L on the Marketplace.

What’s Included With the Dress:  

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
  • Alpha Layer
  • Texture change HUD – grays

Jack Frost Nipping at Your Nose (and Ears!)

Of course, with the chill in the air, I needed something to keep my ears toasty.  While I rummaged around in my inventory, searching for the perfect winter hat, Ripley nudged my elbow insistently, and pointed his nose at the box from Mina perched on my shelf.  Love previously blogged the free Nell hair in her post [HERE], and I had immediately traveled to Hairology to scoop up Love’s featured hairstyle.  However, like Astrid in her post [HERE], I hadn’t yet finished opening my gifts from the event, and had completely forgotten this lovely style.  It’s a good thing my pupster remembered, because the long, flowing hair and white, knitted cap were perfect for a day of gliding across the ice!

Cold Hands and a Warm Heart

With my outfit complete, Ripley and I thoroughly enjoyed a lovely, wintry afternoon, filled with drifting snowflakes, frosty air, and the sound of blades cutting across fresh ice.  Now, if only I had trained Rip to fetch a steaming mug of cocoa, my day would be complete, and I would be able to feel my hands again…. Note to self:  When you go skating, bring mittens!

Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

She’s The One

She's The One
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys.  Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations.  A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely!  These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture.  To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap.  To join the Fab Free 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 .

After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain.  As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique.  The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please.  I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist.  The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars.  Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members.  There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.

After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories.  There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval.  Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here.  The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock.  It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!

Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops.  Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping.  Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine.  For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types.  Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne.  Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play.  While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.

I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday.  As always, happy shopping!

Afternoon at the Museum

Can you find the fabulously free outfit in this picture?

Coming soon to FabFree

Look down… lower… to the left… there it is!

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Second Life Natural History Museum, it is totally worth a stop.  There is tons to explore, not to mention some pretty impressive dinosaur builds.   You might even learn something too!
Coming soon to FabFree

An afternoon at the museum calls for a great new outfit, luckily I happened to stop by one of my favorite stores as they were gearing up for an event.  Etchaflesh is hosting a Halloween hunt again this year, with a wall full of 12 gorgeous prizes.  Swing by, grab a hud, find all of the tombstones and you can take your pick!  You can play once each day, and get every item off the wall for your trick-or-treat basket before the hunt ends October 31st.

I snagged up this cute knotted tank and stripped capris over the course of two days.  The capris include a pretty sweet color change hud.

There is no group needed, and the hunt is completely free!

Coming soon to FabFree

I needed a little something to round out my outfit, so I hopped on over to Earthstones to take a look at their wall of group gifts.  I snapped up this great earrings and bracelet set, and a load of other jewelry.  The group is $250 to join, but there are over a dozen beautiful and classy items to snag, making this one totally worth the money.

Recharge Your Soul

 

Recharge Your Soul

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Here’s hoping you are having a lovely, lazy weekend.  Ripley and I are out doing what we do best…….Sunday!  We did some shopping (of course!), then some wandering, and finally settled down in this cozy corner of the Bella Pace sim to curl up with a few of our favorite books.

Not only a bunny-fanatic and my constant companion, Ripley also has a nose for sniffing out Fabulous Finds.  Today, he led me straight to Indyra where I discovered the newest group gift, this Kai Jacket and top in a mossy shade of green called “herb.”  It perfectly matched my Triumph Eyes in Moor from IKON, and I knew I had to have it.  Lucky for me, the Indyra Originals Fashionista Files group is free to join, so I had a new addition to my wardrobe, just like that!

A cheerful hello from Sheidey solved my next dilemma of what to pair my top with.  She had been 7 Seas fishing and offered me an extra pair of Zef jean capris she had collected from the prize-filled waters at Sn@tch.  There, you can fish for one of 20 random grab bags for free.  I’m so lucky Sheidey is such an avid fisher-woman and shared her day’s catch with me!  She inspired me to do some angling myself very soon.  I heard she also came home with a cutely-goofy looking hammerhead shark, too,….but that’s a story for another day.  The capris fit standard avatars and also come with an Omega applier for mesh bodies.

After adding a colorful Falling Leaves necklace from EarthStones and Caty wedges from KC Couture, I joined Ripley in the quest for a peaceful spot for some afternoon relaxation.  It is my wish for you that you find time to rest and recharge yourself before Monday rolls around.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Día de Muertos

Día de Muertos

Day of the Dead

This Sugar Skull set works for celebrating the Day of the Dead or lovers of sugar skulls.

Neve formerly known as Coldlogic (still located at the same location) is giving this set away as their current FREE GG. The group is free to join. Coldlogic rebranded into Neve and is now including more mesh body fits with their clothing, Venus Isis, Slink and Maitreya. Of course you still also get the standard mesh sizes like before. The new Neve line has the same quality Coldlogic was always known for. You get 2 versions of the mesh Campus sugar skulls shirt. One with the undershirt which you are seeing here. You are also getting the mesh zeezee leggings in 2 patterns, web & stripes. Both top and bottom have easy to use HUDs giving you lots of options. I also wanted to show you the new current FREE GG over at Earthstones which is the Spider Cascade Hair Stick in my hair. It comes with a color hud to change the stone color. It is also adjustable to work with any hair you already have. No date was given but it sounds like this gift wont be around long so I would run right over and grab it. The Earthstones group does have a 250L fee to join but there are a whole wall full of gifts along with this one. There are plenty of Day of the Dead makeup tattoos on MP, I grabbed the Delizio – La Dia de Los Muertos Face Paint Tattoo I am wearing for FREE.

PicMonkey14Just to show you all of the patterns and a few of the wearable options I snapped some more pics for you. You are seeing all 4 shirt patterns some with and without the undershirt and both legging patterns in these pics. The top and leggings can be worn as separates for even more options.

There is a chill in the air so I am gonna snuggle up in one of my sugar skull shirts and enjoy the rest of the day. I hope you enjoy them too.

It’s all about free today..everybody loves free, right?

autumnheat1Ahh, Thursday again, which is quickly becoming my favourite day of the week, as I get to show all you lovely Fab readers, some great deals! Today shall be no different. The recent post, by fellow blogger Morgie Hilra, that Pru featured HERE, in which she made a video showing off several places for new, or just deal-loving avies to go for free or well-priced items, including our own FabFree HQ, reminded me that it has been an awful long time since I paid Free Dove a visit. So, this week, that is where I headed, and let me tell you, there is something for everyone, whether you are new to SL, or have been around awhile and have mesh body parts out the ying-yang. LOL. Let me show you a few pieces that I think everyone will love, and each item is totally FREE! autumnheat2

Let me start off with my clothing. The cute Layla tank in Purple, and my sexy Jade skinny jeans, are both items at Free Dove from blah.BLAH.blah. The mesh tank top actually comes in a whole fatpack of colours, 8 to be exact, and each come in the standard sizes. As for my jeans, it is almost like a fatpack. You get 4 versions of jeans. V1, which I am wearing, has a brown belt, while V2 has a jean belt that matches the jeans themselves. Both versions then also come in 2 more versions, cuffed or uncuffed. Not bad for free. Like the tanks, these are mesh, and come in the standard sizes.

No outfit is complete without some kind of jewelry, at least that’s my opinion. Lucky for me, EarthStones has some goodies for you at Free Dove as well. Their offering is the Lora set in 2 colours. These sets consist of a necklace, and matching earrings. You get one set in silver, with a turquoise stone, which I am showing off (although my hair is hiding my earrings), and another set in gold, with a warm, orangey-coloured  Sunstone. Each piece is script-resizable, so the majority of shapes and sizes should be able to adjust as needed.

autumnheat4My last Free Dove gift to show you, is from Pink Cherry, and it is for you SLink hand and feet users, such as myself. You can pick up a set of nail appliers, in a really pretty metallic and black pattern, again, for free! Silly me, forgot to include a picture of the hud, but there are 8 total colours for you to choose from, that all have the black accent stripe on them. The perfect finishing touch for pretty much any outfit. autumnheat3

OK, so I mentioned my hair when talking about my jewelry.  The last gift I want to share with you, said hair, is not from Free Dove, but I had to let you all know about it. The fun and sassy Sadie hair, in Walnut, is the current free group/subscribo gift from Zalea. You all remember ChiChickie! don’t you. Well, when they closed to rebrand, Zalea is what they became. Pru showed off the free Grand Re-Opening gift HERE (and it’s still available, in case you were wondering, along with the gift hair they had out at this years Hair Fair.) Both of those are free for everyone, but if you want the hair I have on, you have 2 choices; join their free in-world group and grab it from history, or if you don’t have room, join the subscribo, and it is in that history, as well. It’s a sweet style of un-rigged mesh, with some flexi-pieces that add a little movement as you walk, and you all know how partial I am to shorter-do’s.

Alrighty..I think I have shown you all I can for now. I know, I could find more, but I need something to show you next week! Who am I kidding, as if I could run out of awesome freebies and cheapies to show off. That is why I love SL, so many generous designers with awesome products for us thrifty shoppers. So, until then, TTFN!

Coffee and Books Keep Me Youthful

Give me coffee and no one gets hurt! But seriously… I like my coffee. Who doesn’t? (Shhhhh… If you don’t — I don’t want to know!)

Cofffee and Books Keep Me Youthful [1]

So I was off adventuring again, looking for a great spot to get my morning coffee and lucky for me the Vicarious Youth Cart at the Cart Wash Sale had just what I needed to top my morning off right! This great mesh cardigan (it comes in all the standard sizes and in two different colors as you can see on the cart picture at the bottom of the post) and was perfect for my morning wake up call! For only 10L it was the perfect added comfort to my morning cuppa Joe!

I also found this fabulous necklace and earring set for Ladies at EarthStones that matched just perfectly! (The earrings are hidden under my hair but I promise they are there.) These pretty understated beads called the “Arron Set” for ladies comes with a handy resize script and is a FREE group gift from EarthStones right now with your group membership. The group is 250L to join, but if you’ve not stopped by in a while, there were many gifts still sitting out for happy shoppers!

Cofffee and Books Keep Me Youthful [2]

Once I had my coffee I was all set for some serious reading. (Who wouldn’t be?) And FauxDoll Rae didn’t let me down! I found this cute wearable poetry book (pose included! No need to rezz!) on the Marketplace for just 10L! The creator has included her own original art and poem on the book for you to read as well! How awesome is that!

Once you’ve had your morning coffee and gotten your reading in, be sure to hop over to the Vicarious Youth Cart at the Cart Wash sale. There is a great selection of items there for the entire family. There are adult lady’s and men’s styles, teen’s styles, and children’s clothes as well as two FREE gifts  — a kitty headband and a Dr. Who trapper keeper. Woo Who!

Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit🙂

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack🙂

strawberry lemonade3

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

strawberry lemonade2

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around🙂 I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!
