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!

Stuck in the Middle

Some Guard Bear!

Hello Fabulouses!  Here I am TRYING to relax in the winter sunshine (finally) with a steaming mug of coffee, and I am stuck smack-dab in the center of an adolescent contest of wills between a “guard” bear and a stubborn dog (yes I mean YOU, Ripley!).  It all started with a protective glare from Rip when this polar bear lumbered up to us.  Baloo the bear then stuck his tongue out at the Pupster, and the goofy face competition began…

At Least I am Decked out in Style

I seem to be favoring sweaters lately, and today’s top is no exception.  My chunky-knitted poncho is a limited time offer for Fifty5 Thursdays at Cristal’s Creations.  I love the bright splash of teal across the black background.  With its high collar and long sleeves, I’m sure to stay toasty warm even in the midst of icy glances, and even a possible snow ball fight between two young males.  The sweater is very well made with gorgeous detailing in the ribbed texture of the fabric, and gleaming buttons.  Fifty5 Thursday sales take place every week beginning on Thursdays, and run through Sunday, with many merchants choosing to leave the sale items up for sale all week long.  You can get a peek at the items available this week {HERE}.  The Elegant Black Poncho A package at Cristal’s Creations includes my poncho shown here as well as skinny blue jeans, which I opted not to wear.  Also set out is The Elegant Black Poncho B which is the same as my outfit, except the stripes are a rusty brown tone.  At only 55L for a complete outfit, it’s a great bargain.  I’m not sure how long it will be available past Sunday, so if you are interested, don’t delay in popping over to Cristal’s Creations.

A Girl With an Attitude in Black Leather Pants

Well, if I wasn’t trapped in the center of two posturing goofballs, I probably wouldn’t have my exasperated attitude, but I would definitely still have my stunning leather pants created for the Maitreya mesh body.  Packed with details such as zippered pockets and a glossy sheen to the leather, these pants also come with a 5-color texture change HUD to coordinate with whatever top you choose.  Although I wouldn’t wear these on a warm day, they are perfect for frosty weather. Best of all, you can add them to your inventory for only 25L if you visit Premier’s Marketplace store.  It’s a great deal for a quality pair of color-change leather pants!

Calm Down Boys…..There Are Enough Ripley-Snacks for Everyone

Well, dear readers, before this teen-age situation gets out of hand, I’d better assure both Baloo and the Pup that there really are enough Ripley-snacks to go around.  Perhaps I can even convince them that (shock of all shocks) they can even be friends.  Wish me luck!  Happy shopping to you!

Smiles on a Cloudy Day

Little by Little

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It has been a number of cold, gray, rainy days in a row where I am in RL, so I guess that influenced my selection of outfit and location for today’s blog post.  With a couple of lamps to guide our way, Ripley and I set out to explore the snowy It All Starts With a Smile sim. Rip never has to worry about getting the chills with his luxurious fur coat, and lucky for me, with my cozy knitted outfit and scarf from VIPs Creations, I stayed toasty warm all day as well!

Nothing Goes Together Like Winter and a Sweater

Unless of course it’s a knitted skirt, fleecy scarf, and a sweater!  My entire outfit today from my shawl to my shoes is a free group gift for members of the VIPs Creations group, which by the way, is free to join!  I just love it when I get a complete outfit all in one swoop!  The soft, woolen, long-sleeved sweater wrapped my arms in comfort, while its cropped waistline offered a sexy peek at my midsection.  Just so we could keep snuggly warm, the generous designer tucked a black scarf in the package to drape around our necks.  It resizes with just a touch, so you can adjust it as needed for your avatar.  A thick, knitted gray skirt which fell to just above my knees, perfectly coordinated with the hue of my top, and rounded out my outfit.  Finally, before setting out with Ripley, I slipped on the Cecilia shoes, which are also included as part of the gift.   These leather high heels are packed with details such as three buckles and delicate knotted laces.  They were the perfect footwear to shield my toes from old Jack Frost.  If you would love to capture this sweet, stylish complete outfit for yourself, head on over to VIPs Creations, join the group if you’re not a member already, then tap the gift board.  There’s also a men’s group gift up for grabs, but since Ripley already sports a fluffy winter coat, he opted out (not to mention the fact that he’s a canine!).  I can’t say I blame him….he’s pretty cute just the way he is!

What’s Included:

  • Cecilia Shoes for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya
  • Skirt in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Top in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Black Scarf

Sunny Days Ahead…. (I Hope!)

I think Ripley and I have had enough rain and gray skies to fill us up for quite some time.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you sunshine and happy shopping!

Socking It To Me

Snapshot_003I Don’t Understand

There is one thing about men that I will never understand… Actually there are several things, but one strikes me particularly hard today – Why oh why, do the socks go on the floor beside the laundry hamper?  I even moved the hamper where he was tossing them last week, thinking to myself “Ok…  if I can’t beat him, I need to join him“, but no…  The socks are still beside…  the…  laundry … hamper.

I am considering that perhaps there is some kind of negative magnetic force that keeps them from going inside the basket.  What else could it possibly be?  I am reading up on the subject…  “How To Understand Him”.  Wish me luck.

At Least One Thing Was Clear

One thing that was really clear to me today was that I was really glad I picked up the Zenovia Outfit as a free group gift at MonaLISA.  I joined this group for 100L some time in December to take advantage of a lucky board prize [blogged here] that is still available, and stopped in today to check out what was available in the way of group offers.  There are tons of group gifts, a midnight mania board, and a few group lucky boards too.

The Zenovia Outfit all goes on in one click and includes the skirt, top, and cardigan.  It comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the alphas in the case that you need them.

Like My Hair?

I think I jumped up and down when I saw that Truth was participating in this new round of The Epiphany with three gorgeous long hairstyles at just 50L per play!  I am wearing Wind today, and can’t wait to get my hands on the other two as well!  All of the braids and waves are done perfectly.

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
