This is My Happy Place

Finding Sanctuary

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday!  Ripley and I are taking a quick break from the Valentine’s Hunt over at Justice to show you another of the free prizes from the hunt.  I know I said the Opal Tank was my favorite, but maybe, just maybe, I’ve found a new fave!  I don’t know whether this qualifies as a bathing suit, or lingerie, but the pupster decided it was time to play with his seagull friends, and led me to the shore on Sanctuary Isle…. so a bathing suit it is!

Red Hot

Harley, Valentine’s Hunt prize #8 at the Justice store, is a skimpy, super sexy bathing suit (or piece of lingerie) in a gorgeous crimson hue.  Complete with gleaming silver chain accents, this spicy little number is just right for a day of fun whether inside or out.  Best of all, after just a small investment of time, you can pick it up completely for free!  All you have to do is locate the heart shaped hunt object concealed somewhere in the store.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

After we enjoy the picnic lunch we’ve brought along on our beach getaway, Rip and I plan to return and try to ferret out some more of those elusive hearts.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Fireside Happiness

Fireside

Happy Sunday evening, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  While wandering the grid, Ripley and I came across a sexy little gift perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.  The generous designer over at Suna Design is offering the entire outfit I’m wearing above, including necklace and strappy heels, as a free present for members of the Suna Design group.

Sizzling Sensuality

Featuring a plunging neckline, a curve hugging fit, and laced cut outs in the skirt, the Kim mini dress is sure to draw appreciative glances your way.  A swirling design decorates the fabric, which fades from light to dark red along the length of the frock.  The two tiered necklace helps to emphasize its low neckline, and slender high heels show off your shapely legs.  The folder includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, so there is something in here for everyone.  It’s a real treat to have an entire ensemble with clothing, jewelry and shoes all in one neat little package, and to top it all off, this is completely free!  You do have to be a member of the Suna Design group to pick this up, but the group has a zero Linden dollar join fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Oh Spring.... I'm Ready for You!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I returned today to one of our favorite sims for photography, Mystical Fae, to capture a snapshot of a cute little dress that I picked up as a free gift just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.

Oh Spring… I’m Ready for You!

I know, I know…….I’m a little premature with my longing for spring, but a girl can dream, right?  When the elusive warmer weather arrives, I’ll be all set for a night on the town in my new frock.  The Ijalu dress from Artizana has a bodice that features a plunging neckline and criss-cross straps in a luminous dark gray solid fabric.  The coordinating skirt is double layered with a silvery, semi-transparent print atop a solid underskirt.  With its flirty length, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, so there is something in there for everyone.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

The scent of these roses is just so heavenly!  It’s so tempting to gather a few of them for my table!  I think Ripley and I will stop by the florist shop, and bring home a little bit of spring.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Radical Resolutions

Radical Resolutions

Everyone is making resolutions these days.  Usually they involve more salad, or perhaps even heading out to the gym more.  While these are all honourable things to endeavour, I am heading for a more fashion-inspired resolution:  Time to have some sartorial adventures!  My clothes often echo a desire for a hint of madness that comes from within, so I am striving to make that desire more of a reality.  Come on, let’s be more adventurous with our clothes in the new year!

Ring Around the Rosary

I am taking semi baby steps today with my adventures, and it all starts with a super awesome and slightly crazy outfit by Rosary.  They have put out a new group gift for January, and it’s got all the brilliant madness that I’m searching for.  It comes with a colour-change HUD that has a bunch of colours as well as some cool textures too like animal print and a few awesome tartans as well!  To grab your own copy of the off-the-shoulder jumpsuit, just join the Rosary group for 200L, and it’s all yours.  There are two other group gifts there too, so totally worth the join fee!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Being Phedorable

Phedora have a new group gift out as well, and it’s these cool platforms covered in hothouse blooms.  There are several different textures to choose from, and they’re all very evocative of warmer climes.  I got my pair by joining the Phedora group for 350 Lindens.  There are a whole bunch of other group gifts available there as well.  These shoes are sized for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya feet.

Do you resolve to be a little more adventurous?  Let’s make it happen!

I feel like calling off the day to be with you

I feel like calling off the day to be with you

I was digging through my inventory this morning, came across this applier lingerie, and felt compelled to photograph it. It is simply elegant and sexy, and quite often that’s enough.

It is a free group gift from ba! designs and the group is free to join. There are classic pants and shirt layers if you’re not rocking the mesh, a TMP applier, and an omega applier. The store also has a few other nice group gifts that are worth checking out. Enjoy! ❤

Wandering in a Field of Flowers

Flirty Summer Style

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.  I had a lovely weekend with my family in RL, and I hope you did as well!  My daughter surprised me with a mason jar full of small pieces of paper on which she had written reasons why she loves me.  It must have taken so long for her to make it, and I’m sure it will be a real pick me up on the days I’m feeling down.  RL aside, I’m excited to tell you about this sweet floral and denim outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.

Flirty Summer Style

AMUI’s bandeau style sleeveless top and maxi skirt are packed with details such as the ruffled trim on the shirt, an embroidered design near the edge, and dangling ties.  I really like the juxtaposition of worn denim and the flower patterned fabric.  Straightaway, the bright hues and cheery blooms caught my eye, and I knew I had to add the “Lindy” top and skirt to my summer wardrobe.  Luckily, it’s set out as a free group gift for members of the AMUI Group, and since the join fee was only 25L, it was a budget friendly fabulous find.  The package includes versions for popular mesh bodies, but no classic avatar styles.  Since the pieces can be worn separately, it will be fun to mix and match with other items of clothing in my inventory.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Ripley is raring to go for his evening walk, and since we had quite pleasant temperatures today, we’d better get out and enjoy it while we can.  Last week, we hit record high temperatures, so it’s nice to have a respite from the heat.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Feeling Vibrant and Vivid

Vivi

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this gown just gorgeous?  Ripley and I wandered over to MH Unique Design and discovered this shimmering frock as a free gift for members of the MH Unique Design group.  With spaghetti straps, an intricate design on the bodice, and its full, floor length hemline, the Vivi dress will have you elegantly clothed for that special night on the town.  The gift includes versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, so it’s sure to fit most avatars.  Since we are close to the end of the month, and it’s a group gift, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  If you like this gown as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the store soon.  Since the group is completely free to join, you can pick up this lovely gift for a song.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • 2 alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!
