Lucky S@bbia

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! My RL weather isn’t quite co-operating with the spring calendar, but I can play long in Second Life!  Today I’m wearing a springy type outfit that I put together with some free and inexpensive items I thought you might like to hear about!  I found this great mesh Peplum Tunic in a group lucky board at S@bbia.  It changed to “L” the minute I walked in as if it was fate I should have it.  If only that always happened – LOL!.   It was my lucky day I guess :). The group is free to join, and you’ll want to join anyways to grab these fantastic mesh denim shorts  that go so nicely with the Lucky Board prize top!  While I was in the S@bbia shop looking around, I grabbed this adorable Ribbon Straw bag for 50L.

If you are in the market for a new skin, make sure you check out The Happy Bunny Gacha Fair.  Wow Skins is participating and has their new Rima skin available in three skin tones at 100L per play along with slink appliers, tango appliers and a shape too!  Below I am displaying the six makeup variations you can play for in the Bronze skin tone.

What’s your favourite thing about space?

Mine is space the futuristic fashion ;)

The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own. These detailed original meshes are designed to be worn as attachments but I thought it would be fun to rez them for this post; I resized ‘My Home,’ (taking care to make a note of its original dimensions so I could return it back to its intended state once I was done) and I love the results!

Of course, setting up a space-themed post meant I got to shop for lots more cool stuff (not that I ever really need much of an excuse.) I stumbled across Nylon Popstar‘s leotards a little while ago and I knew they would be the perfect starting point for my outfit – there are 9 colours to choose from, each including 2 transparancy options, multiple layers and Phat Azz and Lolas appliers for only L$50 a pack. Hopefully the pictures speak for the amazing quality of the texture itself – it really is that shiny!

A search for space-y items on Marketplace returned these funky boots by Killer Cerise and I just had to have them: the style and texture is just so cute! I resized them slightly and used the alpha for my Slink feet rather than the one included as my legs are pretty small.. but that is the beauty of modifiable items, with just a little tinkering you can have them fit pretty much any shape you choose to be.

I found Olli Braveheart‘s hair store, LCKY, thanks to a fellow blogger and I’m now a big fan: the styles there are really something special and the colours in the packs are some of the loveliest I’ve seen. The one I’m wearing here is an older style which fitted perfectly under Dolce Blackflag‘s fab helmet – there are currently 15 discounted styles out in store sold in colour packs costing only L$50 each.

I’ve layered quite a lot of eye makeup for an ‘out of this world effect’ but the skin itself is a lovely dollarbie from the ever-fabulous MiaSnow (back in-world again, yay!): its lips were already a perfect match for my chosen outfit.

I hope you enjoy this look at least a little as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Until next time,

<3

Boho Bunny

Snapshot_005Aeva, who is normally known for their skins has placed a really nice mesh Boho Set in their group notices containing the Skirt, Tank Top and matching Cardi in the mocha version I am wearing today, as well as a berry version.  This group is free to join (remember to look for this gift in the past notices).  There are several group gift to pick up in the store as well – so make sure you check those out too!

This adorable animated Spring Babe Bunny made by Birdy / Alchemy was sent to me by a friend of mine (Thanks Honey!), but if you’d like one for yourself you can find them at The Chapter Four in a gacha machine for 100L per play.  There are several different animals to collect and trade.

Snapshot_006The skin I am in today is Morphine’s (formerly Mirror’s Enigma) latest release, Ghail that is currently being exclusively featured at The Skin Fair.  Below I am showing both the Smoky and Natural versions.  There are also all kinds of appliers, and makeup additions available.  I am wearing the peach skin tone, but there are several shades available in both lighter and darker tones.  Speaking of The Skin Fair, I really need to make some time to check out the gifts that are available!

PicMonkey Collageps.  YES!  Another new release from TRUTH Hair!  Maisy is a long banged style with double side buns that you can add…  I bet these would work on Harriet too…  I’m gonna try it!

Drippy Monday

Snapshot_001
The other day while I was participating in the Actuality Birthday Hunt (post shown here), I noticed that there was a few free gifts scattered on the floor in the corner just inside the café doors by the subscribomatic.  Inside the gifts you will find all kinds of great stuff (I even saw a gift for the guys – which I haven’t opened up yet…) such as ladies fashion, accessories and jewelry.

Snapshot_002
There are several gifts there, but today I am showing off the Langly Classy Dress Coat in a shade of eggplant and taupe that includes the optional under shirt and a fun matching umbrella (with animated holding pose).

Snapshot_003
These awesome Rough Rider Boots that match up almost perfectly to the coat, are not a free gift at the café, however you can pick these up as a free subscribe gift at !APHORISM!.    This is a mesh design and comes in several sizes with co-ordinating alpha.

I am wearing a couple more gifts that were set out at the café, that I will now give you a closer look at.  My blue eyes (which would probably work for men too!) and an eyeliner makeup tattoo were set out as free gifts sponsored by Langly.

Snapshot_005
Like the skin I am in today? You can find the Glam Affair Aria Skin for 50L per play at The Arcade Gacha.  Skyler showed you combination 6 in her post yesterday (here), and this one is combination 11.  My Maiko TRUTH Hair style is also available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play and includes a pair of fun headphones.  They didn’t go with my outfit today so I’ll have to show it again with them, but I quite like the hairstyle even without the headphones ;)

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  I hope that you are all being spoiled the way you deserve, but even if you aren’t the designers are spoiling you today with free gifts!  Today I have a hodge podge of items to share with you.  You’ll be hopping all over SL to find these lol, sorry about that!

The mesh Bohemian Dress in pink can be found as a free gift inside the Sassy! shop at With Love Fair which runs for another week.  There are a massive amount of gifts and dollarbies to be found – so script down, and take a peek if you have the time! My handy Totebag is priced at 0L at Pixicat, along with several other very affordable items.

Lara Hurley must love us because she has placed out a Happy Valentine’s Day gift skin for inworld group members (free to join) that includes the skin shown, and eyebrow shaper, and slink appliers for hands and feet too!  What an awesome gift – I LOVE this skin!
