I couldn’t stop at just one. Just one what you ask? One post about the 5 linden hunt prizes at the Mystical Market. For this post I have 2 more of the Mystical Market hunt prizes to share with you. One from JR Wolf Creations, and one from Astara. As mentioned in my last post, the hunt object is a little black cauldron with purple brew. There are no hints for these hunt items, however they are not truly hidden so much as settled into the landscape. Some cauldrons are sitting inside their corresponding shop. Happy Hunting!

JR Wolf Creations

This witchy halter top is the Mystical Market hunt prize by JR Wolf Creations. The top has a cool watercolor/tie dye look overlaid with arcane symbols. It comes in quite a few sizes and like all the Mystical Market hunt prizes is just 5 linden.

Sizes included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Astara

The triple ring septum piercing I’m wearing is the Mystical Market hunt prize by Astara. The rings are thin which I think gives them a demure look which isn’t always easy with such a bold piercing. This 5 linden hunt prize includes a color hud with several metal color options.

What I’m wearing:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Septum Piercing – Astara – Triple Septum – 5L Hunt Prize @Mystical Market
Top – JR Wolf Creations – Sacred Halter Maitreya – 5L Hunt Prize @Mystical Market
Face & Body Tattoos – Nar Mattaru – Legend

May All Your Blues Be the Ocean and Sky

Summer Blues

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely Saturday.  Ripley and I paid a visit to the Love Cats sim this morning.  It is truly beautifully done, and if you are looking for a quiet spot to relax, I’d highly recommend it.  Another trip I’d suggest is to the Leigh shop.  I picked up my new frock for free, just for being a member of the Leigh store group.

Darling Damask

The beautiful Desired Dress features a soft floral pattern across a slightly faded background color.  The fabric itself is well done with realistic wrinkles and stitching.  Side slits ensure you can easily maneuver and slender straps allow your shoulders to soak up some summer sunshine.  I chose the blue color variation, but with the enclosed HUD, you can select from 10 options, which you can then tint with 20 additional hues.  This little number is highly customizable, which makes it seem like you are getting an almost endless number of dresses in one folder.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in the gift.  Best of all, since the Leigh group has no join fee, you can truly pick up the Desired Dress completely for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just a Little Bit


Just a Little Bit

A brat?! Who me? Maybe just a little bit. lol For today’s post I have 3 goodies to share with you, the Cae Saturday Sale item, a free group gift by Beautiful Hustler, and a free wearable demo from Alaskametro.

Cae

For the Saturday Sale only, Cae has out a sassy choker/collar that reads “brat” in pretty cursive. It’s highly detailed, and marked just 75 linden. Included in the package is the choker in two versions (with or without peanut), and a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from several metal, and gemstone options.

Beautiful Hustler 

Next up for this post, Beautiful Hustler has a new free group gift out. This long sleeve slightly cropped top and the glittery striped pants are free to all Beautiful Hustler group members. At this time the Beautiful Hustler group is free to join. The pants have a long tailored look to them with a small cuff at the bottom. The top and pants can be worn separate and come in multiple sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Alaskametro

Lastly, I picked up a wearable demo lipstick by Alaskametro for free on the Marketplace. This Catwa applier lipstick with rust colored lip and gold flecks is just really pretty. Definitely play with the opacity for the lipstick layer on your Catwa head while wearing this lipcolor. I think it’s pretty at multiple levels. This free wearable demo lipstick applier includes the color shown only.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – KaraBaby


Hello hello Fab Free, and welcome back to the blog. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable week so far. Mine has been good, and creating content for this blog always makes it brighter. For today, it’s time for a designer of the week post with the spotlight on KaraBaby. A shop focused post has been long over due. If you’ve ever visited KaraBaby you know this clothing boutique specializes in mesh and applier clothing for female avatars.

Most of what you’ll find at KaraBaby is casual style dresses, and outfits. There is however a wide range of fashion. You can find everything from lingerie and evening dresses to shoes and swimwear. While browsing the “racks” I saw lots of bright colors and dainty prints. There are also some great opportunities at KaraBaby to pick up some fashion for little to no lindens.

Once inside the KaraBaby shop you’ll find the 35 Linden Sunday Sales items are still available to the right side next to the event items. To the left just as you enter you’ll see the free KaraBaby group gift, and the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. First, the free KaraBaby group gift is the pretty floral print dress shown. At this time the KaraBaby group is free to join. Next, the pretty shoes with vintage flair are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Additionally, there is a discount area upstairs where you can find great bargains on older items. Happy Shopping!

Unless It’s Got a Dirt Road…

Dirt Road

Hello Fabulouses!  For my walk down a country road with the pupster, I put together a fun, casual outfit with two budget friendly separates that look like they were made for each other.  One of them is a free group gift, and the other is something I can pretty much guarantee you already have in your wardrobe! Sound intriguing?

Rocking Those Polka Dots

After joining the store group at Monomania for 50L, I had a plethora of group gifts just a click away.  The My Sweet Jeans Top practically called my name.  Created in a playful, late summer style with narrow shoulder straps, a bra-like fit and a delightful ruffled hem section, this cropped top features double strands that meet in a bow in back.  Cheery white polka dots grace the medium blue denim fabric.  I don’t know about you, but I am always extra happy when I wear polka dots!  While you are in the shop, you might want to pick up any or all of the *29* other free group gifts on the wall.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Thank You, Monique!

I knew I wanted to slip into high-waisted blue jeans to coordinate with my top, so I did a search for “jeans” in my inventory.  I tried on ALL (and I do mean all) of the jeans I had (queue the Sponge Bob *two hours later* clip), but just could not get the look I was going for.  My coffers were all but empty, so I knew a shopping spree would have to wait.  Desperate, I decided to peruse my “closet” once more.  Down at the bottom of my inventory, in the Initial Outfits of the Library folder, I spotted “Monique Jeans.”  Monique…. it sounds chic, and classy, which happened to be the look I was going for.  What the heck?  I thought, I’ll give it a go….it can’t hurt.  I am *so* glad I did!  I tried to wear the jeans individually, but for some reason, Firestorm wasn’t cooperating, so I just wore the whole avatar.   Now, Monique herself was not a look that I can rock, but her jeans – oh yeah- just what I wanted!  They are the right shade of blue, with slightly flared cuffs, a high buttoned waist, and the price was an absolutely perfect zero Linden dollars.  Piece by piece, I put the real me back on, alphaed out my legs, added the top, and was completely satisfied with the end result.  I hope you like it too!

Until next time, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!

Lazy Dog Dayz

Dog Days
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Real life decided to rear its ugly head and dragged me away from SL for awhile, but I sure am glad to be back!  Ripley and I have two sweet hunt gifts to share with you this evening.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  The only caveat is that the hunt ends tomorrow, August 5th, so you will have to head on over to the sim as quickly as possible to scoop them up before they are all gone.

Oh, Those Dog Days of Summer

Paper.Sparrow is hosting an event in their store with 14 prizes up for grabs ranging from bathing suits, to sexy heels to summer shorts and tops, as well as a belted strapless dress.  All of them cost 25 Linden dollars, and as I said earlier, the hunt ends tomorrow.  For today’s post, I’m wearing two of these pieces of summery goodness.  I just love the soft bluish teal color scheme of the separates.  The cropped halter style shirt features lush tropical leaves in a pale hue accented with pink flowers.  Slender shoulder straps ensure that the Floral Blue Amber Top stays securely in place as you travel across the grid.  My Zarah Skirt coordinates perfectly with the top and has the cutest ruffled trim on the waist and hemlines.  Two dangling garter straps add intrigue.  The texture is really well done with realistic folds in the fabric and a subtle shimmer.  I really like the asymmetrical hemline.  To add both of these items to your wardrobe, head on over to the shop and look for teal colored palm trees scattered around.  They are not that difficult to find, and I was able to discover all 14 of them in one short visit.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Konnichiwa



Konnichiwa

Konnichiwa Fab Free! I have to say I’ve been having so much fun with the Asian theme of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. The prizes have given me lots of inspiration. I’m also enjoying the mix of traditional themes with modern style. For today’s post I’m wearing the female MFH prize at Mishmash Fusion. It’s a short modern dress with a bit of Japanese flair to the cut and fabric. There’s a male prize also, which you can check out in the vendor photo below. The MFH is a free hunt, so this pretty prize won’t cost anything. All you have to do is find it!

With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP
    • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!

This is a PSA

 

This is a PSA
This my fabulous friends is a Public Service Announcement, or two. I know it’s still July, and you’re likely wondering about the vampy, very Halloween-esque look I’ve put together for this post. Well, that’s part of my PSA: There are less than 100 days left until Halloween!! It’s never to early to be excited or prepared for Halloween in my world.

With this in mind I picked up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Hudson’s Clothing and ran with the theme. After all, who doesn’t want to be “Faboolous?!” This tube top is one of the few older Fab Free group gifts available, an oldie but a goodie! Like all FabFree group gifts, this one is free to all group members. It comes in the following sizes and also has optional red tassel/fringe: Standard Mesh (s,L) + Alpha Layer, Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass).

This brings me to the second PSA: Have you checked out the Fab Free group gifts lately?? There have been lots of new additions to the ever-growing number of Fab Free gifts available. You can always check out the free gifts on the Group Gift Listing. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL in-world group, it’s always free to join.

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – TRUTH Alias – Fatpack – Current VIP Gift *Originally Shown Here
Head & Makeup – Catwa Koura
Eyes – Buzzeri – Celestial Demon
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Tatoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted
Necklace – [WitchCraft] Agate Necklace – Coming 7/28 to Suicide Dollz!
