Hunting through the night…

One of the great things about Second Life is that it’s open all night. If you can’t sleep you can do the same things you would do during the daytime hours. And one of the things I like doing when i can’t sleep is participating in hunts. The Springtime Aesthetic Hunt just started and I’m finding all kinds of goodies with the Aesthetic (and sometimes other) bodies in mind. Today’s look comes by way of Sin Original. I’m showing the Oliver Tee and Derek Jeans for the Aesthetic body, but also included in the $1L hunt gift are styles and sizes listed below:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Classic mesh sizes XS_XL

The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt continues through March 31st. You can find a list of participating stores [HERE]. Happy Hunting!

I Did A Bad Thing

BadThings

Day 7 – Stocking Up On Lingerie Challenge!

Sometimes in life we do bad things.  That cream cheese iced cinnamon bun we had for breakfast, that little bit faster we drove over the speed limit on the way home from work, or the extra glass of wine – or three you had at dinner…  The list goes on!  We weigh our decisions heavily in our minds… write it out and read it back, yet still decide there is no giving up the bad things we do.  Sometimes the bad things make us feel so good that we find other ways to balance it out and that’s just how it is.

If you are feeling like you might be in the mood for some bad things today, make sure to stop in at Bad Things and join their free inworld group.  After you have joined, you can obtain the Bria Belted Robe & Panties Set as shown in my photo as a free group gift.  It is a gorgeous shade of royal blue in a silky smooth texture.  The neat thing about this set is how the sleeves shrug over the hands.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

More Lingerie For Valentine’s Day

  1. Tickled Pink
  2. In Mint Condition
  3. Make Him Purr
  4. Not Your Granny’s Panties
  5. Listen For The Siren’s Song
  6. To Tell You The Truth

I’ll be back tomorrow with “Day 8”, the last day of my personal challenge!

Winter Maiden

Winter Maiden

25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

Echoes of Summer

Echoes of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Although it was a manic Monday in some parts of the world, I still enjoyed the balmy weather on my impromptu getaway.   The soft lap of waves, the cries of gulls, and the golden glow of a lovely sunset filled the air as Ripley and I explored the Salt Water sim.

Strapless Summery Fashion

Before heading out with the pup, I slipped on the Salin dress, which is the latest free gift for Fab Free group members from Ecko.  I love the fit of this strapless frock, and the way the hemline is slightly longer in the back than in the front.  Featuring a silvery gray and black pattern, this dress is perfect for a casual stroll or a day of shopping.  I chose to leave my shoulders bare, but I could see draping on a lovely necklace or even a shawl to add an additional touch of flair.  To scoop up Salin for your very own, simply swap over to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to Ecko, then tap the gift board.  You will come away with a super cute, free summer dress.  Happy times!

What’s Included

  • Standard Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

A Little Touch of Bling

To add a bit of elegance, I embellished my outfit with a pair of dangling silver Shaka earrings that I discovered for 70% off at Mandala’s Marketplace store.  The detail and workmanship the designer invested while crafting these jewels is impressive.  With a texture that readily complemented my dress, these earrings added just the right touch of movement and sparkle.  I have always loved Mandala jewelry, and discovering the continued 70% off sale on certain items at the Marketplace store was enough to bring a smile to my face.

The Dreaded Return to the Grind

All too quickly, my escape with Rip will end.  I’d better savor these last few moments of serenity before we have to face Jack Frost’s chilly presence once more.  I hope you will be able to utilize the magic of SL to experience a bit of warmth and sunshine if you long for an echo of summer like I did.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Water Cooler Break

Water Cooler Break_001

Busy working… sort of.

It was a busy day at the office and I needed a quick break so I stopped by the water cooler. I managed to get in a little social networking while I was there as well… like talking about my latest outfit find at Prism. I hunted down this 1L Winter Blows Hunt gift in no time flat to add to my wardrobe just the other day and it is perfect for a day at the office. My colleagues agreed.

What you get.

The outfit is one piece mesh, belt included, and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system bod. I paired it with a pair of black boots for a complete look, but you could always go with heels. For 1L and some hunting time, this dress is a steal.

Back to work for me… break time is over!

A Fab Free Breakfast Club

Wink
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! There are a few more days left to pick up the many FREE gifts available at the Anniversary round of Designer Showcase, so I chose a few more to share with you. I also couldn’t help but notice all the 80s and 90s movie nostalgia on the blog. I like it! Finally, did not go unnoticed that Carson claimed the role of Fab Free Black Sheep. That made me smile, and chuckle a little. To quote the best of all the John Hughes movies, the truth is “… that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal…” or perhaps in some instances a black sheep.

A Dress for a Princess & a Basket Case…

This mixed floral and animal print dress is the FREE Designer Showcase gift from Kendrasy Creations. No matter if you’re a princess, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, or perhaps even a criminal, this dress is perfect for a night out. The dress comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. I must admit, I do feel like a sassy princess in this dress. As with all the gifts at the Designer Showcase, you’ll need to join the Designer Showcase group to pick up this FREE gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.
Princess

… and the Jewelry to Match 

Yet another FREE gift at the Designer Showcase Anniversary round is this gorgeous jewelry set from Moondance Boutqiue. The necklace in the photo comes with a matching pair of dangle earrings. In addition the set can be resized and recolored with the scripted touch menu. This means the jewelry will match virtually any outfit whether you’re the princess or the basket case, or like me and a little bit of both! Don’t forget to wear that Designer Showcase group tag to get your gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Someday My Ship Will Sail

My Ship Will Come In

My spirit hungers to go on, someday my ship will sail

This smexy, curve-hugging dress is the latest free group gift from Entice. It comes in black, gray, and a yummy dark red via texture-changing HUD, all with a black belt and trim. You can mix and match the skirt and top to get the look you like. Sizes include:

My spiky, strappy stilettos (Maitreya only) are a free gift from LYBRA at The Crossroads Event. You can’t see it from this angle, but those heels could seriously put someone’s eye out! The current round of The Crossroads will be ending on January 28th, so be sure to stop by and pick up the fabulous gifts – see Carson’s post for some great menswear items and mine for a pair of must-have winter boots.

Last but not least, my necklace and earrings are free gifts from Chop Zuey. No group is required; just on click on each to pay 0L. You can also pick up the set in gold, which was previously shown here by Astrid.

Flying By the Seat of My Pants

Flying by the Seat of My Pants

Ready For Lift Off

I have to agree with Pru and Carson that something is just not right this week. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the moon, or what, but I’ve had a HECK of a week so far, and it’s not over yet!

To help get over my funky mood, Finnoula (my dog) and I headed over to the beautiful Winter Trace sim for a little fun in the snow. Turns out sledding is a lot harder than I thought, and I was so scared that I just closed my eyes and tried to hold on! Sadly, I wound up going so fast that I lost control and went flying through the air in a most ungraceful manner. Poor Finn couldn’t keep up (or kept her distance on purpose?) and didn’t care at all that I had completely humiliated myself with a face-plant at the bottom of the hill. She ran off to chase some deer, leaving me alone to pick myself up… along with my dignity! 😛

Coming in For a Landing

While I may not have landed on my feet, I was still glad to be wearing these awesome boots! Belle Epoque has set them out as a free gift at the current round of The Crossroads, and you can pick them up for 0L right across from the landing spot. They’re sized to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and the detailing is really gorgeous. There are several other gifts available at this round of The Crossroads, 2 of which were shown here by Carson. 🙂

Moon Amore has put out this “lovely shirt” as a holiday gift for group members. It comes with a texture-change HUD that includes 8 different colors and is sized to fit Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. The group is only 30L to join, and past group gifts are still available for you to scoop up.

Last by not least, my choker is the latest group gift from CHAIN. Choose from silver or gold metal options with the included HUD. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to fit.
