Birthday Surprise

Birthday Surprise - Outfit

I am pleasantly surprised by these wonderful SLB19 free gifts from Alter, Essenz, and Rawr!  I was able to put together an outfit that is perfect for any birthday celebration.

The lovely dress by Alter can be dressed up for a night out or paired with some flats for a casual brunch date.  I’m a sucker for anything floral so of course these platforms from Essenz will be added to my collection of favs along with these classic earrings by Rawr!.

Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

Sl19B Son!a Edge Petra Dress (1)

Going through the SL19B sims reminds of me of an old commercial for the Yellow pages phonebook. In the early 1960s an artist came up with the now famous slogan – “Let your fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages” for the New England Telephone which was eventually bought out by AT&T. (btw, it’s an American thing as far as I know).

Okay, where was I going with this bit of trivia?? Oh yeah! Walking through SL19B is like walking through the yellow pages. I don’t know how your avatar moves but mine moves with me using 2 fingers to “walk”. Quit blathering and get on with it Cre!

Lovely Sparkles

Don’t you love it when you pick up free gifts, open them and find a few treasures? I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the SL19B gift from Son!a Edge. What a beautiful, well-crafted dress! The details and textures knocked me out of my socks. Petra comes in this pleasing shade accented with shiny sequins and gorgeous flowers.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya Perky & Isis Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy & Perky

Peau Neuve (aka New Skin)

Thanks to the WoW non-group Lucky Boards I’m sporting a new skin. When a “C” popped up on one of the boards I slapped it and got 2 shades of the Sugar BOM skin. I’m wearing the bronze version today. When you arrive in the gifts room you’ll also find several free gifts as well as gifts for FabFree and various other groups. There are also non-group lucky, mini-mania, & midnight mania boards.

Have a most splendid week Fabbies!

Marvelously Fab in Paris

Seven $55 Thursday Alena Ourfit_001 (1)

I’m feeling special today. How about you? I think we’ve been watching way too many episodes of Project Runway at home. Today’s outfit kind of reminds me of some of the fashion creations the contestants design and fabricate.  The challenges on the show can run from making an elegant gown in luxurious fabric to using EMS and firefighter supplies for an avant-garde look (think bandages, fire hoses, etc).

In honor of my feeling special, sexy, and so fashionable I visited Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals. I love all of what I’m wearing from the top of my head down to my toes. Where is that runway? I feel like being in a fashion show.

Ooh La La

I subscribe to a lot of stores and groups. This morning I received a notecard about Fifty5 Thursday deals at Seven. Deciding I loved this look off to the shop I went. Alena comes as a top and mini skirt. Details give it an edgy look. There are a number of colors to choose from available at the store ($55L per color).

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink HG & Physique

Edgier (?)

SL19B eyes with hud 6-18-2022_001 (1)

Then another notecard arrived from Sintiklia! The store participates in the Happy Weekend Sale on a fairly regular basis. One of today’s offerings is this funky updo, Octavia. It’s a high ponytail pulled to the front and bangs hanging in front. Included in each color pack is a style hud. It was just what I needed to complete this look.

Look deeply into my eyes . . . . Named “Rainstorm Eyes” they’re a lovely SL19B gift from theMars. You get 6 shades of bom eyes along with huds for Catwa, Catwa HDPro, Lelutka Evo, and Genus. The huds work with the eyes for each of the heads. How cool is that?

SHOES!

Finishing off my look is the gorgeous Lilly shoes, one of many group gifts at StephaneL. The group join fee is $15L. The current gift is a $500L gift card. I’m not very good at math but even I can see that’s a pretty good deal. You’ll also find a couple of walls of older group gifts.

Happy Monday to our readers! What’s so happy about Mondays grumbles the former working Cre. It means you’ll have days off again in 5 days. That’s something to be happy about, isn’t it? You’ll be even happier if you’re a member of the Shanti Bohemian Shop group. This month’s group gift will surely brighten your day.

Light & Bright

I swear that Ms. Arielle, the owner, creator, and driving force of Shanti Bohemian has a texture fairy! Not only is the design of this beautiful, flowy Bohemian top and skirt perfect, her color choices with this texture sends it over the top. The sleeves are gorgeous; the construction details are evident. It makes me feel like dancing, day or night. Dang, I’ll blow everyone away with my cuteness. : )

Here’s the low down on the group. The fee to join is $99L. Shanti VIP’s get half off all new releases as well as monthly gifts and a monthly 100L gift card as a bonus! To join the group copy and paste this into local chat:

Feeling Like a Fantasy

30L Sat God Mod/Simply Shelby 5-28-2022

Happy Saturday! I have a couple of goodies to show you. SL weekends are stuffed with sales events. There are tons of items at heavily reduced prices. I don’t roleplay in Second life but I do like a lot of the clothing and “magical” items. One of my go-to sales for those genres is $30L Saturday. There is a good mix of items so everyone is likely to find something they “need”. So, today I decided to do something a little different.

How This Happened

Reviewing the sales gallery the first item that caught my eye was a splendid scepter (I admit I thought it was a staff!). Simply Shelby creations are well made and sometimes a bit on the fantastical side. I love this one! The Maleficent Scepter Set comes with three colors: rose red, moss green, & mystical purple. The set includes both scripted with flicker & ribbon effects and non-scripted glow versions. An ad states it was “magically created from mystical fairy flower pods”. A tip about the store: The sales items often stay out for several days longer and you can slap a few MM boards while you’re there (NGN).

I needed something to wear that would show off my scepter. The stunningly textured Wild Rose Top & Maxi Skirt on sale at God Mod, a fairly new to me store, fit the bill. It looks so comfy I want a set in RL too. Note: Blue is the only color on sale.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • SLink HG & Physique

Find your fantasy look…

Goddess Mode: On

kimini_002

Hey gang!

So sometimes you just want to feel like a Goddess.  Like you just came down to the ruins of the ancient world and have to power to make it all beautiful again.  Sometimes you simply find a dress that makes you *feel* like a goddess.  And sometimes, just sometimes…. that dress is free.  And you do a mad happy dance cause now you feel like a freaking goddess and it didn’t even cost you anything!  And then you start a lot of sentences with “and” even though you know you aren’t really supposed to but you feel like such a rebel and you really don’t care cause you are too busy happy dancing….  and then you think you need to come up for air, stop babbling like a lunatic (its a hobby) and tell everyone else how they too can feel like said goddess, for freaking free!

This is one of those times.

Kamiri has this gorgeous dress available as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is free to join making this gift totally free! (can’t say that happy word enough!) In fact, they have an entire area upstairs with free gifts!  Well worth the trip to the shop.  This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Classic

I absolutely love the detail on this and will be tucking this away for further wearing!  Bliss!
