Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Zoltar Speaks

Zoltar Speaks

Went to the Fortune Teller

I popped over to New Brighton yesterday to hang out on the pier for a while, and among the rides and arcade games, I found this Zoltar Cat machine. I thought it would be fun to see what Zoltar Cat had to say about my future, so I gave him a click. Perhaps he was just messing with me – or maybe he was offended by the doggies on my handbag and shirt – but he kept insisting that I needed more cats in my life. Here’s a sample:

[13:29] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: I am the great Zoltar Cat, I will tell your fortune!
[13:29] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: You will be meeting an old friend soon. It will be a happy meeting with lots of chatting and giggles.
[13:30] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: You will wonder why you don’t see them more often. Are they a cat?

Well, this is SL, so I suppose anything is possible! 🐱

Zoltar Cat also gave me a bunch of “lucky numbers” so I may have to run out and buy a lottery ticket to see if he’s right about any of them!

Cats and Dogs

If you haven’t visited the FLG Store lately, you really need to go check it out. There are quite a few *very generous* gifts to pick up, including the complete outfit that I’m wearing here. And by “complete,” I mean COMPLETE! 😀

The Marcelly outfit comes with pretty much everything you see here: leggings, top, shoes, bag, and headphones. And, get this: the leggings, top, and shoes come with a HUD containing 30 different textures… EACH! Seriously! That’s a different outfit for every day of the month!

The Marcelly leggings and top will fit the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya M and L
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

The shoes will fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet. Both the headphones and pug bag can be resized; click to bring up the blue resizer menu.

The FLG Store – No Cabide group is free to join. Zoltar Cat thinks you will be very happy if you go there. 😉

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

nc5_001f

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! And what a crazy, bizarre week this has been! The “highlight” of my week was accidentally tossing my cell phone in the washer with a load of laundry. GAAAH! My poor baby is dead, but at least she smells good. 😥

To cheer myself up, I grabbed Finn and headed over to Summer Trace for a relaxing walk in the sun. Finn had a grand old time chasing the birds (which she never caught), and I enjoyed the pretty flowers and ocean breeze. Ahhhh.

Dressed Up to the Eyes

My dress is the latest Fab Free group gift from No Cabide. The Jayne Mini Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP

You also get an amazing texture-change HUD which includes 10 dress fabrics, as well as 10 strap textures. To grab your gift, activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag and pop on over to No Cabide.

To See Your Shoes and Your Spirits Rise

Continuing my Friday theme… my cute flats happen to be from fri.day! The Bebe Flats (in peachy) are only 50L today for Fifty Linden Friday and are sized for Slink and Maitreya mesh feet. I love the detailed stitching and pretty, feminine bows. 🙂

While you are there, be sure to have a look around the store. Fri.day is having their Semi-Annual Sale from March 3-10, and everything in the store is 50% off (excluding gachas and gift cards). This is a great time to stock up on shoes for spring!

Here’s to a calm, stress-free weekend! 😎

In Like a Lion

In Like a Lion

Hello Hello Fab Free! March is coming to an end already, sometimes it seems like the month flew by. With the end of the month coming near, I always check to make sure I’ve picked up any group gifts I can. In my efforts I picked up these high-waist pants from MoDanna, and a lion septum piercing from Swallow. Additionally, The Cart Sale at The Wash continues on. What’s not to love about tons of items at just 10 lindens each?!

These well-textured black leather high-waist pants are a must have! They are the FREE March group gift at MoDanna, and the inspiration for this outfit. These fully mesh pants come in standard mesh sizes, a Belleza fit, Slink fit, and a Maireya fit. Also included in this gift is an applier hud for a blue pentagram bustier style top, which isn’t shown. I didn’t realize it was included until I’d already picked out another top. Whoops! To get this awesome gift, head over to MoDanna and wear your group tag. The MoDanna group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss this one!
In Like a Lion Close Since I goofed missed the top in the MoDanna gift, I picked out this cute little halter top by Kita’s Sideshow at The Cart Sale happening on The Wash sim. There are a few different versions of this mesh top available for 10 lindens each at the Kita’s Sideshow cart. Each of them has a playfully macabre graphic. This one shows a poison bottle with the phrase “Drink and be Merry”. It suits my eclectic style well, and for 10 lindens I had to have it!

For a little finishing touch, I picked up another March group gift. This lion’s head septum piercing is the most recent group gift available at Swallow. The septum piercing gift can be re-sized by clicking, and includes a color change hud with several metal texture options. I thought the lion was quite fitting for March! The Swallow group has a one time join fee of 30 lindens, which is more than worth while. Once you’ve got the Swallow group tag, you can pick up this gift and several others!

I hope you like these fab finds as much as I do. Here are the details, Enjoy!

Knockers Empire

Knockers Empire

Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I’m feeling a little more gothic than usual, perhaps it’s this curvaceous school uniform from Knockers giving me gothic lolita vibes. This subtly sexy outfit is the current group gift at Knockers. The Knockers V.I.P. group is currently 150 lindens to join, however the monthly gifts are more than worth the one time fee. The dress is a single mesh piece and highly detailed. Not to mention, the curves in this mesh are killer. If you like the style, you won’t want to miss out on this gift from Knockers.

To match this cute dress, I needed equally cute and flirty shoes. Recently I received notice of a new shop in Second Life called Empire. I went and checked out Empire, and was not disappointed. These platform shoes are their current opening group gift. The shoes come in fits for most mesh feet and include a color change hud that allows you to change individual parts of the shoes. The shoes could be colored this way to match just about anything. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens as well, but I am comfortable saying these shoes are worth it. I’ve been wearing them, and they are seriously cute on.

Happy Howl-o-ween!

Snapshot_002 The TAG! Gacha Event has begun again this year and there are a ton of fantastic gacha machines to be played…  The best part about this year’s round of TAG! Gacha?  There are free tricks and treats at every stop!

You’ll need to start by picking up the HUD system at The Haunted Mortuary (starting point) and then you can spin to be teleported to random stops until you are finished the tour.  You can see more information about this event at their blog, but today I wanted to show you three of the free prizes I picked up that I thought were kinda fun for the upcoming Halloween!

  • Jian – My undead décor dog is called Happy Howl-o-ween and is the free treat you’ll receive at Jian when you tag the urn.
  • Lark – Lark is offering their Halloween Glasses as a free gift for you.  What a great way to add a bit of spirit to your outfit without having to wear a whole costume.
  • {Imeka} – This free Tag Gacha Balloon comes with a holding animation so you can take it with you wherever you go.

The Seeing All Outfit I am wearing that includes the top and skirt is one of the common sets at for the tag gacha, playing at just 50L a try.  The set includes both the skirt and the top which is a real steal in my opinion.  I am displaying the nr. 1 set, however the nr. 2 common set is covered in seeing all eyeballs!

I have even more fabulous freeness in my post for you today!  The Feline hairstyle that I am wearing today is a free gift (priced at 0L), at Pepe and includes the light brown hair HUD.  There are actually two free styles, so grab them both!

I wanted a fun title, but came up empty, so fill ‘er up!

Hi hi! How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous, and I couldn’t think of a better way to finish it off than by showing you some goodies I have found!

gasstation1

The top I am wearing, is the newest group gift from [ bubble ]. You will need to pay L$150 to join the group, but once you do, you get this texture change mesh Boudoir top for free, as well as gaining access to quite a few previous group gifts.  This top has 8 different colours to choose from via HUD, but I have just chosen a few to show off.

gasstation3

So, for those of you who like makeup that makes a statement, have I got a skin for you! As a Thanksgiving promotion, 7 Deadly s{K}ins has put out this gorgeous pale skin with the most beautiful turquoise eyeshadow! For only L$50, you get 2 versions, one with cleavage, and one without, as well as SLink hand and feet appliers, and a Tango applier. I think that is a pretty sweet deal.

gasstation2

Last but not least is my necklace and earrings. The Baby Monkey Embossed Hearts Jewelry set is on one of several Midnight Mania boards located in their store, and if you can get 60 slaps for this set, it’s yours, free! Each piece is texture change, with 4 different metal textures to choose from. If you are thinking that you recognize this set, it’s because Serena showed it off way back in February, HERE, when it was a Valentine’s promo.

OK, my evening is drawing to a close, and my bed is calling me. Until next time, TTFN!
