A Road Trip Around the Grid

Puppy Trio

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I set off Around the Grid, and while visiting the Facepalm Clothing Company, scooped up a lacy top and short set (called Road Trip) for just one little Linden dollar over the weekend.  I really like the way Road Trip’s wrap-style tunic has an asymmetrical hemline, which is very short in the front, but long and flowing in the back.  The airy fabric keeps you well covered in strategic places, yet allows for a subtle peek at your midsection.  The hunt gift also includes a faded pair of denim shorts that hugged the curves of my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  If you don’t feel like searching for the smaller hot air balloon hunt object, you can purchase the prize for 25L by locating the Around the Grid Hunt display, and clicking the larger hot air balloon located next to the sign.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Clearance Sale Tresses – Oh Yes!

When we needed a break from all that searching around along the hunt trail, Ripley and I visited Elikatira, and happily discovered the shop is in the midst of a Clearance Sale.  After doing a little happy dance, I discovered the ideal boho hairstyle to complete my Road Trip outfit.  Eden is a long, straight, center parted ‘do with a headband, that fit just the look I had in mind.  Included in the package is a daisy add on for the headband, which I felt echoed the creamy hue of my top perfectly.  For just 72L per pack, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of color varieties (and a few other hairstyles as well).  I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so if you are interested in some high quality hairstyles at very budget-friendly prices, I’d recommend heading over to Elikatira as soon as possible.

Savoring the Last Few Days of Freedom

Ripley and I are enjoying our last few days of summer freedom.  All too soon, it will be back to the grindstone for me, and long days of silence, interrupted by some barking at the cats for Ripley when I head back to my job.  I hope no matter what you are doing in real life, you are able to work in some “you time.”  Until my next post, happy shopping (and hunting!).

Dancing on My Own

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing weekend.  While in the midst of our wanderings through the grid, Ripley and I came across a fantastic group gift that I just had to tell you about!  I blogged earlier this month {HERE} about a previous gift from Arcane Spellcaster.  The generous designer has replaced Spring Blue with a free 500L gift card for members of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group.  No, that wasn’t a typo!  If you joined the group after my previous post, switch back to the group tag, teleport over, and claim your very own gift card worth 500L.  If you aren’t yet a member, the join fee is 250L, but you can scoop up some lovely items on a shopping spree!

So Many Possibilities

Typically with group gifts, you don’t get a choice in what item you receive, so I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the store, and checking out all my options.  The lovely Patricia gown immediately caught my eye, and when I slipped it on, Ripley wagged his tail with approval.  With slender shoulder straps, a lace-covered midsection, and a long, curve-hugging skirt, this dress is pure elegance.  I love the way the translucent overlay adds a lace texture over the trailing skirt.  Also included in the package are gauzy sleeves, and a pearl necklace, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  The gift comes with a HUD with four textures; you can color the entire outfit the same as I have done, or use a different hue for the bra, dress and sleeves.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted Mesh
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

If Patricia is not your style, there are *plenty* of other options to choose from at Arcane Spellcaster.  I had a tough time deciding which pieces to add to my inventory.  I’m sure you’ll find an outfit that catches your eye.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Butterfly Kisses

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to Hobbiton this week, and I had the magical experience of having a butterfly alight on my outstretched hand as I stood in a garden of wildflowers.  If you haven’t traveled to this lovely sim, it’s well worth the trip!  Modeled after the Tolkien tales, and filled with whimsical references to scenery from the novels, Thunder Dragon Island offers optional, light-hearted role play, a peaceful setting, and spots for couples scattered throughout its landscape.

A Jeans and Tee Kind of Girl

Since I knew we would be exploring the wonders of nature, I opted for a casual spring look for our journey to the land of Bilbo Baggins.  I assembled my outfit from free group gifts available at My Style, and it was perfect for the mild spring weather we encountered.  The strappy, cream colored Kelly top  kept my shoulders free to feel the dappled sunshine.  I particularly enjoyed the loose-fitting satiny texture of the fabric.  My well-worn capris continued the carefree theme.  Complete with rolled cuffs, a buff colored belt, and a realistic, faded texture that echoed the milky hue of my tank, these pants are sure to become a spring wardrobe staple for me.  Both items of clothing are available completely for free as group gifts at the My Style store.  Simply swap over to the Avangardista tag for the Kelly tank and the My Style tag to scoop up the trousers.  If you’re currently not a member of either group, don’t let that stop you, as both groups have 0L join fees!

Included With the Kelly Top:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Included With the RAF Jeans:

  • Fitmesh for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Time for a Game of Fetch

My peaceful encounter with my new butterfly friend did not last long, as it was soon disturbed by a canine pal dropping a branch on my toes (ouch, Ripley!).  As the beautiful winged creature fluttered away, Rip gave a joyful woof and nudged the stick, just in case I hadn’t noticed its crash landing.  Guess I’d better indulge in his favorite past time in order to save my pedicure.  Until next time, happy shopping!
