Desert Boho

Desert Boho

Happy Monday, fabulous readers!

I was looking through a box of old photos and found this picture of me hamming it up during my ’70s boho days on Route 66.

Lol, not really! ūüėČ

But a visit to¬†The Mother Road sim reminded me of the decade I spent living in the High Desert of California. I didn’t live in a trailer in the middle of nowhere, but just a mile or two from my house you could find scenes that looked remarkably like this one… tumbleweeds and all.

Boho Chic Chick

To create my boho look, I stopped by The Boho Culture Fair (TBCF) and picked up a few of the MANY generous gifts.

First off, my outfit is TBCF gift from Rir¬†Life.¬† The¬†Bartot Top & Lagenlook Pants are a really fun, carefree look. You can’t see them here, but the pants have a short flare on each side, almost like they were made of big scarves. The top ties at the waist with just a hint of skin showing. Both top and pants are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Accessories

I also picked up some fun items to complement my boho look:

  • My Dream Catcher Choker is a free TBCF gift from SAGA. It comes with a HUD that includes 4 different metal colors for the leaves. Click the choker for the blue resizer menu.
  • My bracelet is a free TBCF gift from !IT! It includes a HUD with 10 different metals and is resizeable through the HUD.
  • Like my pose? You can pick it up as a gift from Stonerella at TBCF. Be sure to wear your Bento hands for the full effect.

The Boho Culture Fair runs through November 9, so you still have a few days to stop by. I could not give you direct landmarks to the individual vendors because you’ll wind up back at the landing point, but you can always do an area search to find what you need. You do need to join the Fair Lovers or Hunters in-world group to pick up most of the gifts –¬† it is only 1L to join.

BTW, Kat already showed this cute strapless dress by Gypsy Chic that you can pick up at TBCF landing point. Be sure to grab that one, too!

Keeping It All In Balance

Keeping It All in Balance

Hello Fabulouses!¬† Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share another free gift from Seniha.¬† In my last post {HERE}, I shared the chevron printed Drizella dress.¬† While I was at the shop, I also picked up the Jade top, which is a free group gift for the Third Life group.¬† This cute cropped blouse features a delicate floral pattern scattered over a cream colored background, and a criss-crossed halter style neckline.¬† It paired beautifully with my black jeans, but I think it would also look lovely with a skirt.¬† The group has a 10L join fee, but that includes access to a variety of gifts around the grid, so it’s well worth the investment.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

One Magic Hour

The Magic Hour

Hello Fabulouses!  In the midst of all the weekend chores, it’s so important to indulge in some down time.   You have to look out for yourself so that you can care for others.  Here, Ripley and I are enjoying a magic hour before diving into all the “have-to’s” that seem to make up my weekends.

Bold Chevron Print

My sexy black and white Drizella dress today is a free gift from Seniha for members of the Mesh Body Friends group.  I just love the timeless zig-zag pattern that never goes out of style.  This little beauty features a neckline that plunges deeply, but still provides coverage in all the right areas.  A coordinating panel accentuates your waist, and the skirt falls to just the right length.  Best of all, since the MBF group has no join fee, I added my new frock to my collection completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I suppose one hour off will have to do for today.  After a trip to the home improvement store to pick out a replacement for a dripping faucet in RL (I had NO idea there were *so* many faucet styles available!), I never did get to grocery shopping yesterday.  I can’t let the pupster run out of Ripley Snacks…  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Let Your Colors Burst

Vision

Hello Fabulouses!  I have a quick post for you today, featuring a completely free, bustier from ViSion Clothing Company.  With a soft pink, lavender and gold floral pattern splashed across a dark background, this colorful, sexy top will set off your curves in style.  I really like the eye-catching details of the silver rivet accents and the black criss-cross side straps.  Since the misty morning air was cool, I decided to slip on a leather cropped jacket, but as the day heats up, I plan to remove it, and soak up some sunshine.  Either way, this top looks fantastic, and so will you!  Best of all, the ViSion Clothing Company group has no join fee, so you can scoop up this bustier for free.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Although it’s above our 75L maximum limit, I thought it was worth mentioning that my beaded necklace from Indulge Temptation is currently 50% off.  In fact, every item in the store is 50% off until July 10th, so if you are looking to add some reasonably priced baubles to your inventory, you might want to journey over to IT! and take a peek around.

Baby, You’re a Firework…

Although I enjoy Fourth of July celebrations, I dread them as well, because poor Ripley is terrified of the sound of fireworks.  Last night, he paced my room, and spent some time cowering partly under my computer desk (poor boy doesn’t quite fit under it any more).  I’m sure the next couple of days will be challenging for him as neighbors celebrate Independence Day with firecrackers, Roman Candles, and Skyrockets. I know he’ll be glad to have this holiday behind us.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Wild Pink Butterfly

Butterflies Hello Fab Free’rs! For once I’ve had a fairly quiet day in RL and I’m glad. It’s about time! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have a few group gifts, one from Hucci (technically a subscriber gift), and one from The Skinnery. Also,¬†Indulge Temptation is celebrating 2 years with two ways score a beautiful celebratory gift.

The subscriber gift a Hucci is this lovely magenta colored mesh sleeveless top. The shirt comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, as well as Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. As you can see this low cut “WildPink” is meant to be sexy yet casual, I think it could also be worn over an applier top if you wanted a little more coverage. To get this FREE subscriber gift at Hucci simply join the Subscriber, if the gift isn’t sent to you, use the message history to have the gift delivered.
Butterfly To go with the top from Hucci, I also picked up this pretty raspberry colored lip stain from The Skinnery. This Catwa lip applier is a FREE group gift at The Skinnery. It comes in a set of 4 stains. Each color has a normal version and smudgy version that makes it look as though you’ve messed up your lip-color with a little kissing! The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve got your group tag, simply click the gift vendor and your lip stain set will be delivered. There are also several past group gifts still available.

The bold beautiful butterfly jewelry shown in the photos is a fun hunt prize or group gift from Indulge Temptation. This specific set along with several color change huds are the way Indulge Temptation is celebrating their 2 year Anniversary! There are 2 ways you can get this gorgeous set of statement jewelry. If you don’t want to join the in world group, you can hunt each piece at the main store. Each hidden part of the set is 10 lindens and there are 12 total pieces, most of which are the color change huds that allow you to adjust the color of the jewels as well as the metal parts. You can also resize these pieces of jewelry for the best fit. Not up for a hunt? No problem. Indulge Temptation group members can pick the full set up for FREE as a group gift. ¬†The in world group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, and there are previous group gifts available as well. You’ll find this and the other gifts in a room to the left of the landing point.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Water Nymph

Water Nymph
Hi There Fab Free I’ve got a Fabulous find to share with you on this Friday. One of the best things about Fridays in Second Life? Why Fifty Linden Fridays, of course! There are lots of great finds every Friday for just 50 lindens. This Friday has some awesome finds, one of which is this stunningly exotic skin from Plastik. You’ll actually find two Fifty Linden Friday sets at Plastik for 50 lindens each today only. One is an outfit set that includes 2 tops and a skirt. While the outfit is beautiful, I was so taken with the Special Edition skin that I just had to share it with you. This FLF offer is a pack that includes this amazing skin in a male and female version along with every applier Plastik makes¬†for their skins, and of course classic system layers. You’ll also find mesh eyes, makeup layers, and nail appliers for both Slink and Maitreya in the package. I felt like a gorgeous creature in this highly detailed skin, and of course, since it’s summer I wanted to be near the water. Remember, this awesome deal is available today only for Fifty Linden Fridy, run! hehe I also included a copy of the vendor photo for the special FLF skin below so you can see both versions, there’s also a list of all appliers included.

For a little extra detail, I also included this beautiful FREE flower crown I found at Color Me Project from Indulge Temptation. I was hoping to play up the fantasy aspect of the skin from Plastik, and I think this detailed accessory did the job perfectly! This FREE gift is available at the Color Me Project landing point. You’ll need to join the Color Me Project group, which is FREE to Join. With this fabulous gift from Indulge Temptation you’ll get a hud that allows you to size the crown and adjust the color of the metal parts only. Color Me Project’s current round ends July 5th, so don’t wait!

Wasabi Pru

If you haven’t made it out to Hairology yet, you need to go! This gorgeous brightly colored hair is the FREE Second Life’s 13th Birthday Gift from Wasabi Pills, now available at Hairology. This pretty gift comes in a “boobs” version, and the package includes a matching alpha layer. I really like how this hairstyle seems to have movement to it. Again, don’t miss out on this and many other FREE hair gifts at Hairology.

To go with this colorful new style, I picked up a FREE gift at SWANK by Indulge Temptation. This gorgeous flower necklace is just part of the full gift which includes matching earrings and a color change hud with several options for adjusting the color of the metal parts. This Special Edition version has lovely rainbow colored flowers to show support for everyone affected by the recent atrocity in Orlando, Florida.

Last, but never ever least, SlackGirl has put out yet another FREE group gift. This beautiful set of eye shadows has appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, additionally there are classic system makeup layers included. In other words, just about everyone can wear these sultry shadows. This gift has 8 eye shadow variations, all with a pretty gold color on the lid.

Keeping it Lowkey

Tunic Hello Hello Fab Free’rs Thanks for stopping by! Today I have what I think is a super cute look inspired by this gorgeous paisley tunic from Lowkey Shawty I stumbled across on the Marketplace. It also includes today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer from REIGN, so I want to make this post short and sweet. Additionally there’s a new event in Second Life called Addicted to Black. The name of the event makes the theme pretty self explanatory. My goth side is squealing with delight over this event. I stopped by and was happy to find a few FREE gifts, a necklace from Indulge Temptation, and a piercing from CS Tattoo.
Tunic Close I sincerely love this tunic from Lowkey Shawty. Paisleys are a guilty pleasure of mine, and it’s not often you see a good paisley pattern. I love the colors of this top, it’s bright and beautiful without being garish. It’s also long enough that you could wear it without the leggings, and honestly it would be just as cute with shorts or a skirt. The tunic is just 10 lindens on the Marketplace, and you’ll get several mesh sizes.

The shoes, the shoes, I love these platforms too, they kind of make the outfit. These platform sandals are today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer at REIGN. The shoes are just 50 lindens for today only. In the package you’ll get a different fit for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP feet, along with a color change hud with 20 color options.

Speaking of gorgeous, my photo really doesn’t do this roped bead necklace from Indulge Temptation justice. These black seed beads have an iridescent quality. The set I am wearing appears to reflect a pretty red hue from the black beads. This FREE gift at Addicted to Black also includes 2 other versions of this necklace, one with a blue hue, and one with a regular white light hue.

Also FREE at the Addicted to Black event is this horseshoe lip piercing from CS Tattoo. Sometimes I really like just a simple piercing rather than some of the more intense ones that are often seen in Second Life. This black metal piercing can be sized via touch menu. I also want to note, that the piercing did not fit my avatar initially. I think it’s intended to be unisex. However, I had no trouble re-positioning it and using the touch menu to size it down a little.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
