Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic_001

TWE12VE is a new event this year that begins on the 12th of each month. To celebrate their first year, creators are giving gifts for just 12L each at their booths. I’m here to show you a few of the fantastic finds I picked up when I went to check out the goings on!

Do you believe?

I believe in magic! And tee shirts! I’ve become an avid fan of JellyRoll clothing since I discovered the cute brand, and JellyRoll is at TWE12VE with a few new releases as well as a 12L gift. Their gift, which you can pick up for just 12L, is a texture change tee called Magic that comes with a hud with four different textures. I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this post so you can see all the textures available. It comes in several sizes to accommodate many mesh body types as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something magical

I stopped by the Adorably Strange Wares booth and picked up their 12L gift and was thrilled with what I found when I unpacked the box. I rezzed it out and discovered that it was floor glitter! You can get a pretty good idea of the look of it in the picture above, but the picture doesn’t really do it justice. The floor glitter shimmers, glitters, and moves just like magic and a swatch of it that covers a fairly good sized area is only 3 prim to set out. The gift is copiable so you can set out as many as you need to decorate your area!

Last touches

I finished off my look with a gift from Indigenous Designs. For just 12L, I picked up their gift box and this Rose Choker was in the box. There were two in the box actually… one in gold and one in silver. I’m wearing the silver in the picture above. The details on this choker are really pretty and it makes a nice final touch to a casual outfit (or perhaps for a more formal date?). Either way, I was charmed by its look!

Avi-Glam Lucky Board Offer

Snapshot_003
Hello Fabulouses! If you happen to have a bit of free time this week, make sure you stop in at Avi-Glam and check out their offerings!  A friend of mine teleported me to the shop recently when there was a letter L on the lucky board (thanks again Grace!) and I was fortunate enough to win this beautiful dress.

A Rotation of Dresses

You’ll need to join the free Avi-Glam inworld group to partake in the lucky board offers as they are group only, so clear a space!  There are a few boards with eyes and the Prestige Dress that appears to rotate in prints to win.  I am not sure how many different ones there are, but I love this one called Stylish.  It comes in XXS-L mesh and includes a couple of alpha layers should you require them.

Be sure you also swing your cam around the corner of the boards, because that free group tag activation will also score you a wall full of free group gifts.

A Moment to Reflect

A Moment to Reflect

Hello, fab readers! So much is going on in the world right now that I needed a moment to sit and reflect. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irma right now, and to those of you who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I have family in Florida, so we are anxiously waiting and watching the storm’s progress.

A new group and a new gift

My adorable shirt is the latest group gift from Fashionably Dead. The Cropped Collar Tank is sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with a fatpack of 4 different patterns for each. I’m wearing the one on the bottom right, which is actually quite a bit bluer than it appears in the HUD.

fdauggift

Fashionably Dead has a new in-world group which is currently free to join but will cost 100L after September 25th. They also have a new mainstore on the Lula sim, so be sure to update your landmarks!

Stay safe out there! ❤

Taking Time to Watch the Leaves Turn

Just Breathe

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are back with another budget-friendly Fabulous Find that we discovered at the Petry Model store on the Marketplace.  This sweet, strappy dress includes a HUD with 12 textures for the bodice and 12 for the skirt.  I love the fact that you have so much flexibility to customize this frock!  Some of the options are more transparent than others.  I opted for an opaque white underskirt layered with sheer fabric, and paired it with a floral top.   The Tattooed Dress V48 has a price tag of just 20L.  With the variety of prints and solids to choose from, it’s like getting a box full of dresses!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope the rest of your weekend is rejuvenating and relaxing.  Now that Ripley and I have the yard work out of the way, we are planning to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon watching Mother Nature paint the landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Something extra

I also stopped by E. Vary as one of their make up gifts had caught my eye. I love my current Maya applier that I’d picked up as a free gift (no longer available sorry!), it’s my new favorite, but I wanted a “pick me up” for it and decided that it needed a fresh look. E. Vary has out the Ilusion Gift as their free SL Frees & Offers gift. Just don your tag and pick it up for free. It’s an omega system applier make up.

I did discover that you either have to applier the lipstick or the eye-shadow and I wasn’t able to figure out how to apply both at the same time, but for free, I still feel the gift was well worth it. I donned one of the pretty lipstick shades to add to my look. I’ve included a picture of the HUD below to show you what all you will be getting with this free gift!

Pretty as Ribbon Candy

Bright and Sweet Like Ribbon Candy

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  While shopping on the Marketplace at the Believe shop, Ripley and I discovered this bright and cheerful fitted dance top for only 10L, and I wanted to quickly share it with you before I head outside to tackle the dreaded y-a-r-d-w-o-r-k before it gets too hot.  Fortunately, the sky is overcast and the high temperature is expected to be only in the nineties … so I’d better take advantage of the respite from heat while I can!

Pastel Stripes

I just love the stripes of color on this cropped shirt!  The pattern reminds me of the ribbon candy my mother used to get during the holidays.  With a playful, asymmetrical hem line, slender shoulder straps and pastel colors, this little number is just so happy and fun!  The fitted mesh top comes in XS – M and L sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to get a perfect fit.  Although I bought it a couple of days ago, the shirt description says the price is only for 24 hours, so if you’d like to scoop up this bargain for yourself, I’d suggest doing so quickly.

The pupster and I are off to pull weeds and pick up seed pods – oh the ever-fun life of a blogger!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sheer Days and Glitter Nights

Snapshot_002

If you are in need of a few sexy cocktail dresses for the month of September, [::FAX::] has you covered (or barely covered in the case of one of the dresses…). One is free and the other will only cost you 10L if you aren’t already a member of the Third Life Group. I think once you see these variations on the “little black dress” you’ll want them both!

Sheer Days!

The September group gift from [::FAX::] is sheer… and absolutely beautiful and pictured above. The [::FAX::] group is free to join making this gorgeous black wrap dress with the slim waistline belt free to pick up. It is sheer lace that somehow manages to give just enough coverage to keep things PG-13 with daisy accents and little rhinestones in the center of the daisies. This is a dress that goes zero to sexy in a nano-second and comes in all your favorite mesh sizes!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Glitter nights

Right next to the regular [::FAX::] group gift, is their Third Life Group Gift offering. It is just as lovely and is the glitter mini dress in the wrap style pictured above. The picture doesn’t do it justice as it has a lovely shimmery texture that really does seem to glitter.

If you’re not a member of the Third Life Group, the group will only cost you 10L to join, and it gives you access to gifts in stores across the grid, making it well worth the tiny fee. This dress also comes in a variety of sizes to suit your needs!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
