Finding a Pearl

Where Time is Never Planned

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I visited Soul2Soul Bay, he befriended this little pup with a nose for a good book.  I couldn’t resist posing near the cute fella and snapping a quick photo.  Isn’t he adorable?

Pearly White Lace

My cream colored halter top today is part of a free gift offered by SnB Fashion to members of the Teleport Hub group.  I love the delicate lace layered over a solid white, bustier-styled top.  The package also includes a lacey skirt, but since the pupster and I were wandering up and down the beach, I opted to slip on a pair of faded blue jeans instead of the dressier skirt.  The gift contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh body versions of the outfit, so it’s quite versatile indeed.  The Teleport Hub group has a 10L join fee, but group membership makes you eligible for a plethora of gifts scattered around the grid, so your linden dollars are well-spent.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Ready for Music

Music_002

I love when gifts just appear in my inventory! That’s what is so great about subscriber gifts 😀 And Graffitiwear has sent out their free September subscriber gifts and this month they were so cute I wanted to make sure you fabulous readers didn’t miss out!

Check your inventory!

If you’re already a subscriber to Graffitiwear, check your inventory for the free gift box from Graffitiwear for September and unpack it! You’ll discover a pair of fitmesh tee shirts. One has this great guitar design on the front (shown in the picture above) and the other has a set of headphones (not shown). Both have a “ripped” back design which I wasn’t able to get in the picture, and belatedly wished I’d thought to take a picture of. The outfit has that awesome 90’s music appeal to it!

If you’re not a subscriber, go down to the Graffitiwear main-store and click the subscribomatic for your free gift and that will also sign you up for future gifts as well! You’ll be all set!

Feeling Pretty Thereafter

Feeling Pretty
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone down in the Gulf Coast USA is keeping safe and dry. Sometimes I feel pretty. Today is one of those times thanks to a few group gifts and some hunt items I stumbled over in Second Life earlier today. I hope you enjoy them also.

Thereafter

To start with I happened across an event in Second Life called Thereafter. Sadly, this event does end in just a few days on August 27th. However that gives you just enough time to check it out if you hurry! The Thereafter event is a sort of post apocalyptic themed event with several big named designers participating. A hand-full of the shops have also set out FREE hunt items. The hunt items are little hand grenades hidden around the event grounds. Some are hidden in shops, some are hiding in plain sight among the scenery.

Essenz  Thereafter

One of these FREE Thereafter hunt prizes is from Essenz. These beautiful strappy high heeled shoes are a must have in my book. They come in a deep chocolate brown color. There’s a color change hud that lets you change the color of the sole of the shoe. A little hint for finding the Essenz grenade, this one is hiding out in the open.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis) , Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Arte Thereafter

Secondly, I also picked up the FREE Thereafter hunt prize by Arte. Their grenade contains a pretty set of eye shadow with winged liner. There are 7 shadow colors in the set, each with a crisp version and a slightly more luminous version for a total of 14 options. Along with the appliers, there are classic system makeup layers included.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

A Beautiful Dress

I really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dress to match the shoes from Essenz. This pretty floral print dress is a current FREE group gift at Thalia Heckroth. The Thalia Heckroth group is 25L to join. You’ll find this gift on a shelf just inside the main store. Along with this gorgeous floral pattern, the dress has a texture change hud with 2 additional fall floral options for a total of 3 textures.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara

The Perfect Accessory

Lastly, I couldn’t resist this FREE group gift at Raiment. This little tie choker seemed like just the perfect accessory for this outfit. I felt like the thin cords mirrored the straps of the shoes. This pretty little gift also includes a color change hud with 12 solid color options. The Raiment group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Dahlia on a Wednesday

Sweet DahliaHappy middle of the week, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to a couple of days off.  After last weekend without a working computer (technology withdrawal – eep!), I am yearning for some retail therapy.

Speaking of Retail Therapy…

Ripley and I have been checking out all the Fab Free Group gifts, and found a sexy, strappy little number to share with you today.  The Lisa dress from Sevyn East Ave. features a curve-hugging skirt topped with a flared bodice.  It comes complete with a texture change HUD, which offers you 12 different options, including both prints and solids.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply teleport over to Sevyn, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.  Both the group and the dress are completely free.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Canine Mission

Every night in RL, I hide a dental treat for the pupster, and give the command, “Find It!”  It’s one of his favorite moments, and he’s gotten quite good at using his nose to sniff out the chew.  He gets so excited when he knows I am looking for the perfect spot to conceal his treasure.  Astrid’s post {HERE} about Eclipse themed gifts inspired me to send Ripley on a search mission, not for a treat for him, but for me this time.  He happily led me straight to Dahlia where I was able to scoop up this free Eclipse Necklace.   It’s actually part of a set, which includes a ring, as well as a texture change HUD that allows you to change the color of the moon and the metal.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but I could just have easily chosen white or a deep burgandy.  In order to pick up this jewelry set for yourself, you will need to join the Dahlia group, but it is completely free!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Feeling Erratic

Erratic

Hello Fabulouses!  What a weekend it was for me in RL.  My hard drive failed in my computer, and then I ran into technical difficulties with installing the new one.  Fortunately, once I was able to return to SL, there were no problems there.  Ripley and I quickly got back into the swing of hunting for budget friendly fashions, and discovered this sleek button front frock to share with our favorite readers.

Pretty in Purple (or Whatever Color You Choose)

My curve-hugging mini dress today is the latest free group gift from Erratic.  Featuring short sleeves, and a buttoned closure, this little number is quite sassy with a few of its fasteners undone.  It comes complete with a color change HUD with 12 texture options, just in case violet is not your style.  The fabric has a soft sheen with realistic folds, and I was quite pleased with the flattering fit. It is designed only for the Maitreya mesh body.  To add this beauty to your inventory, simply switch over to the Erratic group tag (there is a 99L join fee), teleport to the Erratic shop, and make your way over to the “Risque” section.  There, you’ll find the group gift vendor, which will deliver the dress with one quick click.

Crossing Our Fingers (and Paws)

Here’s hoping my new hard drive has a long and productive life, and that you have a wonderful week ahead.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Time for a Knotical Weekend Getaway

Knotical

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday!  I have a cute, casual outfit to share with you today.  One of the items is a Fifty Linden Friday offer, so if you want to pick it up for yourself, I’d suggest heading to the shop as soon as possible.

Feeling so Knotical

As soon as I saw the jaunty navy and white striped crop top from Valentina E., I knew it was destined for my inventory.  It has an adorable little twist in the bodice section that I had not seen before in a top.  Since it is a Fifty Linden Friday special offer, I only spent 50L for this cute little number.  It’s designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, so it fit my avatar perfectly!  Since Ripley and I had plans to visit the beach at Maison de L’amitie, the nautical stripes echoed the sea-side theme of our day.

The Weekend’s In Sight

After a crazy busy week in RL for me, I’m really looking forward to a couple of days off.  My “Weekend” mini shorts from Kitchen Sink are aptly named!  Featuring a frayed denim edge, beautifully detailed stitching, and a curve hugging fit, these shorts complemented the dark navy stripes in my top.  The best part of all was these shorts are available at the KS shop on the Marketplace for only 10L – happy dance time!  The package includes Maitreya and Omega appliers, plus a clothing layer option for classic avatars.

I hope you all enjoy some relaxing moments during the upcoming weekend.  I know not much will make me budge from this cozy hanging lounge chair – except for getting up to feed my favorite canine companion, that is.  Calm down Ripley, I won’t forget to serve your dinner. 🙂 Until my next post, happy shopping!

RUFFLES!

Ruffles_001

I think Friday is my new lucky day! I hopped onto SL this morning and my inbox was full of notices of all kinds of new group gifts and a 50 Linden Friday special that I knew I had to have! I was so excited to put this look together for you that I could hardly wait to post it!

New pants!

Pure Poison usually puts out shoes as their group gifts, but this time around they set out a free gorgeous pair of black ruffle front shorts! As always, the group is free to join. I fell in love with these at first sight and actually made the rest of my outfit around this signature piece! When you open your gift package, you’ll find that the Haley shorts come in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Some browsing…

I did some browsing for the perfect shirt to go with my new shorts, and was in luck when I came across this beautiful Summer Color ruffled top by Toxic Bish. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. I am showing it off in black in the picture above, but it comes with a texture hud that includes 11 colors and sizes to fit all the popular mesh body types.

Colors you get with this top:

  • White
  • Mauve
  • Brown
  • Hot Pink
  • Salmon
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Mint
  • Black (shown)

50 Linden Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay! The start of the weekend and special shopping deals! I stopped by Exile and picked up this beautiful hairstyle called “Run the World” in a pack of naturals (they also have out a separate pack of pastels for 50L too). It’s really pretty and I love the bangs! It’s a great and versatile hairstyle, perfect for many occasions.

Strike a pose!

I noticed oOo Studio Poses on my 50 Linden Friday list and decided to stop by there for a look. While I didn’t end up using the 50L pose for my picture today, I discovered that there were two free to all gifts sitting on the counter. You can buy the “My Life” pose used in this picture for just 0L, no group needed. It’s great for those of you into Second Life photography. The second pose out on the counter was a reclining pose, and was just as nice!

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

Beachin

Snapshot_004
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  It’s another gorgeous hot and sunny Second Life day again today.  He’s resting up today, still recovering from his wild medical ride, but I needed some fresh air.  I’ll bring him back a milkshake on my way home!  🙂

It was just pure luck that I came across this beachy fun outfit as a free group gift as I was about to TP to Baja Shore for some sandy goodness.

Seriously…  All this is free!

At DM, you can join the FLG inworld group (which is free to join), and slap the vendor in the group gifts section to obtain the Summer Set that includes the skirt, top, flip flops, sunglasses and the bag!  You’ll be fully dressed – all for free! If this news wasn’t fantastic enough on it’s own, you should know that there is a texture change HUD included for the top, skirt and bag that allows for a pastel print, and a texture change HUD that includes SIX different prints for the flip flops!  The sunglasses are available in red and blue.

Sizes included:

  • Flip Flops: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza
  • Top: Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, TMP
  • Bottom: Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass

Hmmm…  What kind of shake should I get him?  Chocolate, vanilla or strawberry?
