Ready for Back to Work? Yeah, No

Yeah, No

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I went camping over the weekend, and I have to tell you, when it was time to come home and get ready for work again, my shirt spoke my thoughts clearly.  Was I ready to head back?  Yeah, no.  I can’t be the only one who feels like that after a long weekend, so if you’ve ever had the same sentiment, you might want to pick up this free group gift for yourself and let your shirt do the talking.

An Eyeluring Tank

I was able to scoop up this soft cotton tank for free just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  It features a dark gray strip on each of the side panels, the perfect sarcastic response to a silly question, and a cut that is sure to flatter your figure.  Since the bold text really stands out against the snowy white background, everyone will read your message loud and clear.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body types.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the Eyelure store, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

And That’s Not All

I also picked up my Glaice leggings as a free group gift…this time from Revelation.  These shorts are packed with plenty of detail such as rolled up cuffs joined with lacing, a shiny belt, frayed areas on the pockets and a curve-hugging fit.  I can see myself wearing these throughout the spring and summer months.  The gift includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select from six options for colors for the jeans ranging from blues and grays to brown.  To add these versatile leggings to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Revelation Store group, but there is no join fee, so they are completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

He’s Not Such a Bad Bunny!

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  It was time for another escape to the shore for Ripley and I today.  Lucky for us, Baja Tides was just a mouse click away.  If only I could escape so easily to the ocean in RL!  I’m excited to tell you all about my beachy outfit, which I picked up for just 1 Linden dollar as a hunt prize.

This Girl’s Ready to be a Beach Bunny!

The pupster and I hit the trail of the Evil Bunny Hunt 9, which is running until April 30th.  Over at Indigenous, we came across the “Nice Egg” the Evil Bunny had hidden.  I don’t know why they call him evil – after all, he provided a hint for us, which helped us out tremendously!  I am guessing it’s because he has also left some devilishly decorated “Evil Eggs” scattered about as well.  Still, I think he’s a pretty good guy!  “Beware the lillies,” he said in his hint.  Following his advice, it no time at all, I spotted the white egg sporting angel wings and a halo, paid the single Linden dollar fee, and scampered back home to open up my prize.  Nestled inside the folder was the Easter Flowers outfit, which includes the cropped top and mini skirt I’m wearing in the photo, as well as a floppy brimmed hat in a coordinating print.  With the shore breeze, I opted not to add the hat to my ensemble, but it’s there for you if you’d like to add it to your look.  I must say, it’s pretty darn cute!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Altamura Sofia
  • Ebody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I hope your work week is off to a smooth start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Slow Down, World!

Slow Down, World

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  After a super busy week in RL, it was past time for a few quiet moments spent taking it easy in SL.  As Ripley cavorted on the beach at the Baja Tides sim, I plopped myself down onto an old crate perched on the sand and caught my breath.  We all need times like these, and I sure hope you find some time to relax this weekend as well.  There’s plenty of room on top of this box, so why don’t you join me while I tell you all about my latest hunt find?

That Easter Bunny Sure Likes to Play Tricks!

The pupster and I decided to check out the Bunny Hop Hunt that is currently taking place over on the Lucky Star sim.  We had heard that the old E.B. himself had hidden a bunch of colorful eggs all containing lovely prizes throughout the sim.  The price for each ranges from 0 – 25 Linden dollars.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip because it is so beautifully decorated!  Some of the eggs are easy to spot, but others will leave you scratching your head.  I had seen a preview photo of the outfit I’m wearing in my picture, and *really* wanted it for myself, so I was bound and determined not to give up.  After spending two nights searching high and low, I finally spotted the tiny purple egg tucked in a fiendishly difficult spot, but let me tell you, I just love, love, love this Nola Top and Shortie set from QE Designs!  It features a cute plaid crop top knotted over a white bustier, and pale blue jeans shorts with a coordinating pink belt.  This little number was well worth the hours spent looking high and low and the budget-friendly price of just 15 Linden dollars!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Now, I’m off to battle the crowds at my local grocery store.  It seems like everyone in town decides to shop on Sunday afternoons, too.  Do people just park their carts in the middle of the aisle in your market like they do in mine?  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Walk Lightly On The Earth

Sunrise

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I traveled down the path of the Save Earth Hunt and discovered this cute casual outfit over at The Sissy Bar.  It’s perfect for a warm spring day spent exploring the beach, and it costs just 1 Linden dollar plus a bit of time spent searching.

There is No Planet B

This hunt is all about creating awareness about Save Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd.  The prizes all bring to mind the saying “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” and are related to nature and the environment.  I just love the circular tree design on this comfy top, and the way the back is loosely tied at the top and dangles open below.  It’s just so pretty!  The gray shorts feature a coordinating leaf print in light green and blue.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items from your wardrobe for added flexibility.   I can see myself wearing this Fabulous Find over and over.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  Until next time, happy hunting!

A Perfect Pair

You're My Best Friend

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  I know, I know……it’s a Monday, so how good could it be?  Well, how about a new dress and fancy heels for a grand total of 35 Linden dollars?  My best friend helped me discover this budget friendly duo, which sure made my day!

“I Must Have Flowers, Always, Always”

Monet said it, and I have to admit I agree.  What better way to welcome spring than by wearing a cheerful floral print?  Down at the Spring Has Sprung sale at The Wash, I spotted the lovely Lana dress at the Baci Shop cart for just 10 Linden dollars.  Featuring an off-the-shoulder design, a translucent shawl on the bodice and a generous hem, this frock is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  Although there are no sizes specifically dedicated to classic avatars, there is an alpha layer in the folder and all the mesh body versions are labeled fitmesh, so I think it would probably work for girls who are rocking a classic body type.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Alpha Mask

Chase Your Dreams…In High Heels, Of Course!

My sexy heels came from the Oh Pair! cart at The Wash and cost just 25 Linden dollars.  They feature criss-crossed straps, which add a touch of elegance and the most adorable bows with tassels in the back.  Although I chose black to coordinate with the ebony background color of my dress, the designer generously included a texture change HUD that is packed with 24 colors and 2 choices for the metal portion.  You can mix and match these colors because you have the opportunity to individualize the different components of the shoes such as the main color, the strings, the tassels, the pearls, the heel and the sole.  It’s like getting a whole closet full of heels, which makes them very versatile!  The folder includes shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover to share with you all.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Blossom by Blossom, the Spring Begins

Spring Flowers

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I made a return trip to the Spring Has Sprung sale over at The Wash and discovered a complete outfit for just 50L.  The Rosa Outfit from the Finale Couture cart packs plenty of springtime appeal with its delicate aqua background and floral pattern.

Pretty Posies

Featuring a curve-hugging design, delicate spaghetti thin shoulder straps, and vertical piping, this frock flatters your figure.  I love how it leaves your shoulders mostly bare to soak up sun rays!  Its skirt falls almost to knee length.  In addition to versions for mesh avatars, the folder also includes fitmesh in a variety of sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars, so there’s something for everyone.  Not only do you get this lovely dress, but you also get coordinating heels and a double stranded necklace with a resizer – all for just 50 Linden dollars.  The sale continues until April 10th, so there’s plenty of time left to find some budget-friendly bargains.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Forget the Glass Slippers…

Break Time

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I decided to head over to the Spring Has Sprung sale going on down at the Cart Wash and discovered this complete outfit, which includes slouchy boots and a belt for a very budget-friendly price.

…Life is Better in Boots!

There’s no doubt about it, I love me a pair of high heeled boots, and when they come with skin tight leather pants and a crop top, I love ’em even more!  Over at the Finale Couture cart down at The Wash, you can scoop up the Gina outfit, which includes everything I’m wearing except the hat, and still have plenty of Linden dollars left to do even more shopping.  The sweater features a plum colored plaid, long, solid black sleeves and a high collar.  Glossy leather pants, a belly chain with a triangular charm, and high heeled leather boots round out the package.  For just 10 Linden dollars, you will have a complete outfit!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belly chain and boots for Belleza, Maitreya and Sink

The sale at The Wash continues until April 10th, so there is still plenty of time left for you to make a visit.  The pupster and I are going to mosey around and see what other Fabulous Finds we’ll make at Spring Has Sprung.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

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
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!
