Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

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

Oh Sexy Gullfriend

Oh Sexy Gull Friend

The gulls on the beach…

It never fails. Every time I go to the beach, they flock to me. It doesn’t matter if I am wearing a hoodie or no shirt at all. They all squawk in my ear trying to be the one to get my attention. They all display themselves to me hoping I notice. I really believe they just want me give them dinner…

I CDC you…

I stopped by CDC Creations and took advantage of the different group gifts displayed on the counter. Among the gifts, was a gift for the Third Life group, the Long Sleeve Black Hoodie. The Third Life group does cost 10L to join, but I am always finding gifts from this group. Also on the counter was a FREE gift from the DM::: group. The Dark Green Cargo Shorts are FREE when you join the group which is also FREE.
Ummm… I’m not a statue… STOP THAT! … ewwww

Yesterday Once More

mom
When I was growing up, the world was a different place.  Some changes are for the better, and some are for the worse.  I remember it seemed like my Mom was just always cleaning.  I suppose it was her way of keeping busy.  There was no internet, no cable TV, crib night on Fridays, and bowling day was just on Mondays.  Whatever was a stay at home Mom to do the rest of the week?  Often times, I’d find her holding a cigarette in one hand, and the vacuum in the other, with The Carpenters spinning on the record player.  To this day, The Carpenters are still my cleaning music go-to 😉

Fashion Flashback

I came across this sweet Carole Outfit at I.M. Collection as a free SLF&O inworld group gift, and it gave me flashbacks of those old days.  The Carole Outfit includes the mint pants and the tropical printed cropped blouse as show on my avatar in several sizes for mesh bodies.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so you can pick this up with no cost at all to you!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

ps.  While you are at I.M. Collection, make sure you grab the store group gift Serena Showed you [HERE]!

Fraternity Row

Fraternity Row

The countdown is on…

With only  a few weeks left until summer break, things are beginning to liven up here on campus. The the warmer weather is bringing study groups out to the quad, fraternity pranks are in full swing, and me, I’m just headed to the Union to hang out with friends and grab a bite to eat. All the while, I keep telling myself “Just three more weeks”…

GIVE ME A C….

Today’s collegiate look comes mostly by the way of the Marketplace.I found the Jonathon Outfit by [[>CaKe!<]] for just $1L. Wearing the University Jacket and Sneakers, I was not happy with the system jeans that were included, I stopped by Free Dove and grabbed the FREE JZ- Men’s Classic Blue Jeans by Dolome Designs. Accessorizing this look, I picked up the dollarbie Big Headphones also by [[>CaKe!!<]] on the Marketplace.
Anyone know where a kegger is happening?

A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

In Her Eyes 2

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

I hope you’ve found something in today’s outfit to inspire you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

So Sweet You’ll Get A Toothache

MOoHAstralia
Sugar Free – Calorie Free – Cost Free

Hey there Fabulouses! If you don’t happen to have 410 spare calories for the real life limited time Unicorn Frappuccino that Starbucks has just released, don’t fret!  You can live  out your wildest full fat, triple the sugar fantasies here in Second Life!

Astralia wants you to have a calorie free Cute Frappuccino as a free subscribing gift. This gift contains a static and holdable cup so you can set it down, or hold it to drink if you like.  I haven’t actually tried one of these…  I usually just go for my Caramel Macchiato, which is already really sweet.  The pink and blue magical drink is pretty, but looks a little sweet, even for my threshold of sugary goodness.  Have you tried it?  I’m curious what it tastes like!

On A Clothing Note…

The breezy summer outfit I am wearing today is called Willow and is available at MOoH!, priced at 40% off until May 4th.  This brings it down to 99L, but if you still have your monthly group credit handy, you can pick it up  for free – with 51 lindens left to spare on your card!

It’s Easy Being Green

Sunflowers

Real life has been crazy busy for the past week! I really needed a chance to get out of my head for a while, so I took a ride in the fresh country air at Le Sixieme Sens. As you can see, the sunflowers are in full bloom, and nothing says “happy” like a field of sunflowers! 🙂

Going Green

Earlier in the week, I was looking for a gift to show you when I accidentally stumbled into a new-to-me store called I.M. Collection. I never did find the gift I was originally looking for, but what I did find is just as good!

The I.M. Collection in-world group is free to join (for now), and there are 3 4 gifts on the wall – one of which is this cute and comfy green ensemble. Belle includes the trousers and top and is sized for Maitreya and Slink (Physique and Hourglass) mesh bodies.

UPDATE: I just got a notice that the group fee will be raised from 0L to 50L very soon, so be sure you join quickly if you want to join for free!

I’m off to do a little more riding and relaxing. Have a wonderful weekend, fabulous readers!
