Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Hello there Fabulouses!  The beginning of the month means new hunts have rolled in; Ripley and I donned our detective hats, and did some sleuthing for you for today’s post.  Brii Underground Wear is hosting the Surf Girl Hunt from February 1st – 28th with 10 hunt gifts concealed in sea shells scattered around the store.  Each shell is priced at one linden and contains an entire outfit.  1L for a complete costume from clothes to footwear?  Count me in!

Meet Me at The Beach

The first mollusk we uncovered contained the Itapema outfit.  With a sheer, flowing, sleeveless jacket layered over a crop top, brightly hued capri-style leggings, and glittering golden sandals, you will be ready for a day of beach combing.  As soon as I saw the jacket on my avatar, I pictured the long hem fluttering in a gentle sea breeze as I strolled along the sand.  I really like how the muted hue of the top and jacket is livened up by the colorful stripes on the pants.  The metallic sheen on the heels included in the prize box echoes the golden decorations on the top, and really pulls the entire outfit together.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Golden sandals
  • Make up for classic avatars and an Omega make up applier for Catwa mesh heads (not worn in my picture)

More Prizes Yet to Come…

With 9 more hunt items to ferret out, Ripley and I won’t be “homeward bound” for some time.  We have our work cut out for us, but he’s already tugging on the leash with *that* look in his eyes.  I have a feeling it won’t be too long before we return with another outfit to share with you.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

The Road to My Heart

The road to my heart 1
Hello Fabulouses!  It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is only nine days away.  So much has gone on in my real life the past couple of months, it seems like the last time I looked at my calendar, it was the beginning of December, and now it’s almost the second week of February!  Lucky for me, I already have a special Valentine who is always by my side.  The road to this girl’s heart is paved with paw prints, specifically, my pal Ripley’s.

Just in Time for the Holday

With my free jumper from AnaSTyle, I am all set for V-day with plenty of lindens left to splurge on Ripley snacks for my sweetheart.  This darling, satiny red outfit has slender straps, golden hearts, and delicate lace trim.  I really like the gathered fabric at the waistline and how it emphasizes the curve of my figure.   A gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group, this package includes my entire outfit, not just the clothing.  My heart choker, shiny silver earrings, bracelet, hand held heart, and red heels for slink high feet are tucked inside the box as well.  There are so many items included in this one gift!  I love it when I can get a complete outfit in one fell swoop! To pick up this Valentine’s Day ensemble for yourself, just teleport over the AnaSTyle, switch to the SLF&O tag, and click the gift sign.  The group is free to join, and the gift is available to you for no charge as well.

The road to my Heart 2

What’s Included:

  • Romper with lace in XS, S, M, L, XL Fitmesh sizes
  • Alpha layer for romper
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies
  • Slink high sandals
  • Heart bracelet
  • Heart earrings
  • Heart choker
  • Valentine’s heart to hold

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

When Things Go Bump in the Night

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 2
Thump!  Bang!  Clatter!  The hair rose on Ripley’s hackles as the eerie noises crashed towards us on the evening air.  A deep growl began low in his throat, and his eyes focused on the back yard door.  My heart pounding, I grabbed a lantern (since I was in a medieval-style role play gown, a flashlight was out of the question) and, with a pounding heart, I made my way into the darkness of the yard, my steadfast protector by my side.

Brave Beatrice at Your Service

Now, what I was going to do when I met the maker of the noises, I hadn’t the faintest idea, but it seemed to me I just had to investigate.  At least I was elegantly dressed in my free Beatrice gown from AnaSTyle.   Featuring puffed sleeves, a laced bodice, and a delicately embroidered long skirt, this beautiful formal frock is perfect for role playing or just strolling around looking lovely.  The rich, red fabric and deep golden accents provided a vivid contrast to the white top.  I’ve been attempting for a week now to win one of the Mini Mania Prizes at AnaSTyle, and also claiming as many of the Lucky Board prizes as I can.  While waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I cammed around the shop, and spotted a Guess and Win game board.  The lovely Beatrice gown is one of its many rotating prizes.  All I had to do to capture this exquisite dress was to don my AnaSTyle group tag, and click tiles until I made a matching pair.  The AnaSTyle group has a 50L join fee, but with all of the gifts, Mini Manias, Midnight Manias, group-only lucky boards, and game prizes up for grabs, it’s a worthwhile investment!

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 1

What’s Included

  • Mesh Dress in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Necklace
  • Belt (not shown)
  • Keys (not shown)
  • Coordinating shoes (not shown)

The Mystery Solved…

As I held my lantern up high to illuminate the yard, I caught a glimpse of our nocturnal visitor.  Two glowing eyes stared worriedly back at me, while their hungry owner debated continuing to scavenge in the trash bin, or dashing off in a mad scramble.  After a warning rumble from my fierce watchdog, the raccoon quickly decided on the latter, and made a hasty exit to the nearby woods.  Breathing a sigh of relief, and making a vow to set out an extra bowl of food for our ravenous neighbor, I headed back inside with Ripley.

Here’s hoping you have a peaceful, safe evening wherever you are, Fabulous Readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Now is the Time….

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have quick, time sensitive post to share with you today featuring a free group gift.  The group is free to join only until January 31st, so don’t delay if you would like to scoop up this lovely gift for free.

While Rip and I wandered about SL, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest group gift from MMC Store.  As soon as I opened the texture included in the notice, and had a peek at the Celline dress, I knew she was destined for my inventory.  Quick as a wink, I teleported over to the shop, joined the group, and scooped up Celline, as well as the 5 other group gifts featured on the wall just inside the door.

Little.  Black.  Dress.

Every girl needs a slinky, black dress and this little number is just about as perfect as you can get.  With a daring neckline, sexy cut out, satiny fabric, and darling ties in the back, Celline hugs your curves in all the right places.   Simple enough to wear to work, yet easily accessorized and glammed up for an evening date, this dress is a valuable addition to your SL closet.  The 16-texture HUD included with the gift opens up a wide range of possibilities beyond merely a black dress.  As of January 29th, the group is free to join, and the dress is one of six free group gifts available to members.  As I stated earlier, the free join is for a limited time only, so if you have a hankering for this frock, I’d suggest you pop on over to the MMC Store right away.  After the 31st, the join fee will increase to 50L.  Even at that price, this dress is well worth the fee!

What’s Included

  • Fitted Mesh for Classic Avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic Avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Eve (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), The Mesh Project, and Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
  • Color change HUD packed with 16 textures

That’s it for now, my friends.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:
C&CH2 Pic-Firelight Creations

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

Stranded

Just 'Cause She's a Girl...

Hello Fabulouses.  Do any of you know if the SL version of AAA services tractors?  In RL, I’ve run out of gas, had a dead battery, and locked my keys in the car.  Every time, the AAA rep arrived like a knight in shining armor, and saved me.  However, today…. I don’t think that will be the case.  😦 After Ripley and I returned from our trip, a friend of mine called, saying he needed help with plowing his field.  When I saw the rusted condition of his tractor, I glanced at him dubiously. “The tank is full,” he said.  My eyebrow raised.  “I just tuned it up,” he said.  Both eyebrows raised.  “Nothing to worry about,” he said.  Famous.  Last.  Words.   She did start up like a charm, I’ll grant him that, but after one trip around the field, with a shudder and a cough, she just….gave….up.  No amount of coaxing, no amount of promises of Ripley snacks, no amount of helpless pounding on the steering wheel worked.  I was stranded.

Pretty as a Pin Up

Well, if I have to be stuck with a stubborn, tired old tractor, at least I look glamorous in my Retro Pin Up Outfit from Meli Imako.  With a vintage, knotted checkered top, and fitted denim capris, this adorable number makes me feel like a sexy, fifties pin up girl.  I love the detail the designer put into this creation such as the slightly puffed sleeves, buttons on the shirt, and the pocket accents on the pants.  This outfit is the featured free January gift at Meli Imako’s Marketplace store because it earned the most likes on the designer’s Facebook page.  I’d have to agree with all the votes……it’s a great choice!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in 5 sizes:  XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Hourglass, EBody and Tonic

Put Your Red Shoes On

I admit it, my heels are in no way practical for driving a tractor around a field, but they called my name.  As soon as I saw the Cinzia pumps fat pack featured in the KC Couture Marketplace store for only 75L, I knew they had to be mine.  Constructed of rigged mesh, these classic heels have a timeless elegance which totally complemented my retro ensemble.  A 30 color texture HUD makes these shoes extremely versatile.  You can customize them to go with any outfit.   These stilettos require mesh feet, and fit Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza and the Eve Mesh Body.  I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for a day of plowing, but hey, it’s SL!  Where else could I drive a tractor and walk around in muddy, scrubby fields, and never mar my shoes?

Speaking of Walking…

I don’t think help will arrive any time soon.  It’s time for this girl to save herself, and hoof it on back to civilization.  I’ve got a pup at home who is probably worried sick about me.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Off Like A Bolt Of Lightening

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulous Readers! After a long work day, I returned home to a very anxious pup needing a walk, so off we went!  Like they say – no rest for the wicked.

A Leisurely Evening Walk With Lightening

Things on our walk were going along quite nicely, which was a relief because sometimes Lightening (yes, that’s his name) is just a beast to control when something suits his fancy… like running rabbits, or teasing cats to chase.  The weather was calm, and the sun kept us warm.  We leisurely strolled along the path and I was just thinking how relaxing this walk really was when the pleasant aroma of rich chocolate and marshmallows began to fill the air.   I really should have known better than to close my eyes, and inhale the delicious attack on my senses, because mid sniff…  he also caught a wiff, and was OFF like…  well the bolt of lightening he is –  dragging the leash behind him.

The 100 Meter Dash

I finally did catch up with him at the hot cocoa stand that smelled way too good for either of us to pass up.   I wasn’t about to risk breaking a heel running in my brand new Molly Boots that I had just picked up at Kustom9 over the weekend, and really there was no question where he was going.   I am not sure who smelled it first, me or him, but we were both happy to take a little break.  Now of course…  he can’t have cocoa, but he was happy for his very own fresh cup of water after that 100  meter dash he had just done.

About The Free Stuff

I was thankful I was in a cozy sweater dress because our walk did indeed take a little longer than expected.  I found this adorable light pink dress called Natisa at Nala Designs as a free group gift for the Avangardista Group which is free to join.  Available in the following sizes, I’m sure whatever size you are, you’ll find a good fit:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL w/ alpha layer
  • Fitted Mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Echoes of Summer

Echoes of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Although it was a manic Monday in some parts of the world, I still enjoyed the balmy weather on my impromptu getaway.   The soft lap of waves, the cries of gulls, and the golden glow of a lovely sunset filled the air as Ripley and I explored the Salt Water sim.

Strapless Summery Fashion

Before heading out with the pup, I slipped on the Salin dress, which is the latest free gift for Fab Free group members from Ecko.  I love the fit of this strapless frock, and the way the hemline is slightly longer in the back than in the front.  Featuring a silvery gray and black pattern, this dress is perfect for a casual stroll or a day of shopping.  I chose to leave my shoulders bare, but I could see draping on a lovely necklace or even a shawl to add an additional touch of flair.  To scoop up Salin for your very own, simply swap over to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to Ecko, then tap the gift board.  You will come away with a super cute, free summer dress.  Happy times!

What’s Included

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

A Little Touch of Bling

To add a bit of elegance, I embellished my outfit with a pair of dangling silver Shaka earrings that I discovered for 70% off at Mandala’s Marketplace store.  The detail and workmanship the designer invested while crafting these jewels is impressive.  With a texture that readily complemented my dress, these earrings added just the right touch of movement and sparkle.  I have always loved Mandala jewelry, and discovering the continued 70% off sale on certain items at the Marketplace store was enough to bring a smile to my face.

The Dreaded Return to the Grind

All too quickly, my escape with Rip will end.  I’d better savor these last few moments of serenity before we have to face Jack Frost’s chilly presence once more.  I hope you will be able to utilize the magic of SL to experience a bit of warmth and sunshine if you long for an echo of summer like I did.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Found the “Escape Winter” Button

Coming Home

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! After all that winter weather, and the tiff between Ripley and Baloo, I decided a vacation to a tropical climate was in order.  Rip and I packed our bags, and jetted off to this Italian villa.  No polar bears, no rain, no snow, just warm sunshine and gentle breezes.

She’s Got a Brand New Dress And She’s Ready to Shine

Of course, a balmy location called for a new outfit to celebrate, and lucky for me, Carrie Snowpaw has generously set out this gorgeous, halter-style frock as an exclusive free gift for Fab Free Group members. The Segalle Halter dress features a soft blue, floral pattern and hugs all your curves.  I love the detailing of the delicate ring and neck ribbon (for a better view, check out my close up picture below).  It also includes sexy side slits, which offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh.  You can’t see them due to the angle of my photo, but they are a really sweet touch. To add Segalle to your inventory, simply teleport over to Snowpaws, activate your Fab Free Group tag (as always, the Fab Free Group is completely free to join), and tap the gift board.  Then, you too, will be ready for a mid-winter get away to someplace warm and sunny.

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my outfit, I scoured the Marketplace, and came upon these silver Triple Loop earrings from Vextra Co.  I wanted baubles that would provide a welcome touch of glimmer, yet still be simple enough to let the beauty of my dress take center stage.  These hoops fit the bill perfectly. Since their price tag was only 9L, I still have plenty of jingle in my purse to bring home a collection of souvenirs from our journey, and keep a certain someone well-supplied with Ripley snacks.

I Hear the Beach Calling My Name

Floating on the summery breeze, I can just barely make out the lapping waves of the ocean, inviting Ripley and I to wander along the shore, collect sea shells, and play fetch-the-stick.  Until my next post, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!
