Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s Just So Cute!

Island Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post from me to share a casual “take it easy” day outfit.  And boy, after the past day in RL, I sure need it!  I had recently purchased a new car after driving the same one for 12 years.  I have had it for 2 weeks, and someone hit it in the parking lot, leaving quite a bit of damage, and no note to claim responsibility.  What a bummer!  At least I could escape to this spectacular island in SL, and chill in my new jumpsuit.  The best part (since I now have to pay my insurance deductible – ouch!) is the outfit was completely free!

Another Dumpster Diving Find

In my last post, I shared a date night outfit with a coordinating men’s suit (it’s here if you missed it).  Stan and I picked them up as part of the Dumpster Diving Hunt that is running until August 31st.  Since we had such great luck at our first stop, Ripley and I decided to continue on down the trail.  At Fukin Cute, we quickly discovered the mini dumpster concealed in the shop and I excitedly teleported home to open the free package.  Nestled inside, the sporty Kardashi jumpsuit promised relaxation and comfort.  With its semi sheer tank style top, gathered waist, and long sleek pants, this little number will have you decked out in style.  The designer even included a HUD that allows you to alter the color of the eye catching stripes that run the entire length of the suit.  I opted for the purple combo, but you have 5 other choices if purple and pink is not your cup of tea.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Lucky Enough

Lucky Enough

Ahh to be lucky enough to live near the beach……sounds like heaven to me.  Unfortunately there’s not a beach within many, many miles of where I live in RL, so thank goodness for SL!  Today Rip and I explored the Voodoo sim and found a cute strip of beach there perfect for some summer relaxation.  The buildings are colorful and include beachside bars, a coffee house with yummy looking pastries, and even a seafood stand where the pupster and I paused to snap a photo.

Casual Summer Cutie

In my last post here, I told you about a sweet outfit that I picked up over at Fatal Fashion.  Everything I’m wearing today, from head to toe is included in another free gift from the same shop, called Outfit 007.  I say from head to toe, but when I was walking in the sand, I did slip off my heels in my main picture, but I will include a second shot below so you can see what they look like.  I just love this raspberry colored cropped top!  Although you can’t see it from the angle in my photo, there is a lovely laced detail on the sides that is super adorable.  It features an asymmetrical hemline and realistic looking folds in the fabric.  Ideal for warm summer days, the worn denim mini shorts have an unbuttoned fly and slender pockets in the front for tucking in small essentials.  Also included, the chunky necklace and golden bracelet add the perfect finishing touches.  To scoop up this summertime staple, you need to be a member of the Fit Mesh Fanatics Group, but since it’s free to join, you can add a complete look to your wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Here’s a look at the Johan heels which are also included in the gift box.  Enjoy!

All Dolled Up For Date Night

Hello August

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a complete outfit that I picked up as a free group gift, just for being a member of The Third Life group.  The generous designer over at Fatal Fashion has put all the pieces you need including golden jewelry, a sizzling mini dress, and delicate heels into one gift box.  With just a quick stop at the shop, you’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

You’ve Got the Look

The Monna Dress features a back that dips down low so the starlight can caress your skin, and a neckline designed to flaunt your curves while keeping you covered in all the right places.  The texture on the dress is well done, and contains realistic folds and subtle highlights.  The hemline of this mini is quite high, so you might want to don a pair of panties or make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body.  Slip on the strappy heels, the chunky Midna Gold necklace, and even some upper arm bracelets (not shown) for the perfect finishing touches (all are included), and all eyes will be on you.  Since the Third Life Group costs only 10L to join, this free group gift will have you all dolled up for a very budget friendly price.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Sandals for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Until next time, happy shopping!

Traveling Around the Grid With My Pal

I've Got the Blues

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  When I saw all the great prizes Love has been discovering on the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt (HERE and HERE), I knew it was time to fit Ripley up with his tracking harness and hit the trail myself.  Our first stop was at one of my favorite stores, Horr Menswear.  It took some time and effort, as well as the motivation of some crunchy Ripley Snacks, but soon enough, we discovered the cheerful yellow and red hot air balloon (and by “we” I mean “he” – thank you, pal).  For just 1 Linden dollar (and the cost of a batch of biscuits), I added a great looking top to my wardrobe.

I’ve Got The Blues

Well, not really.  How could I be blue with a great shirt like this?  Featuring realistic folds and a button down v-neck, this shirt is perfect for a gray summer day with a bit of drizzle in the air.  Its three quarter length sleeves provide that added extra protection from the elements when you need it, but aren’t so long you are over heating when the sun finds its way through the clouds again.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding shirts that don’t clip at the waist and allow my pants to poke through, but the fit of the Summit Shirt was ideal.  I really like the turned down collar and the added trim at the waist and cuffs – they add just the right finishing touch.  Best of all, this bluesy top can be yours just one little Linden dollar.  Hey if you’re lucky, you won’t have to provide a tray of Ripley snacks either 🙂

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink

Until next time, happy hunting!

I think there’s something you should know, I think it’s time I told you so

Hello there Fabulouses! Today I come to you with news about a little freebie that I thought was really cute!

Freedom!  You’ve gotta give for what you take

A few months back, I joined the Carol G. inworld group and I have not been sorry I did!  I stayed in this group and have been picking up new tattoo group gifts on a fairly regular basis!  Recently, the Freedom 3D Tattoo was sent out to the group and it’s really cute!  It does have the appearance of 3D and looks adorable with this new Navy & Copper Triffle hairstyle (available at Shiny Shabby) that is pulled forward off the back onto the shoulders creating the perfect landscape for a sweet new tatt such as this!  The Carol G. inworld group is 150L to join, but like I said…  I haven’t been sorry about paying the fee!  Sometimes you have to give a little to get a little.

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Oh How You Sparkle

Full of Stars

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday (or what’s left of it, anyway, lol).   I had such a busy day in RL that the hours just flew by.  Isn’t it funny that that never happens when you are in the middle of a dental appointment?  It’s just when I want time to slow down that it seems to whiz by.  That sure is the case when I am shopping and exploring in SL, especially when I find wardrobe essentials for free like this star spangled skater skirt.

Oh How You Shine

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, I was able to scoop up the 4th of July Skater Skirt from Ecce Bellus completely for free.  With a bright waistband, navy and red stars scattered across a snow white background, and a generous cut, this adorable number is sure to lift your spirits.  Since the gift package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for you.  I chose to keep my look clean and bright by pairing my skirt with a white top, but I also tried red and navy shirts, and was quite pleased with those results as well.   To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, look for the Fab Free logo on the wall, click the vendor, then get ready to shine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • E Body
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!

Ahhhh, Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days

Hi Fabulouses!  Now, this is the life…… just lazing around, soaking up some rays, and getting lost in a good book.  What could be better?  Well, how about doing all of the above in an outfit that cost you only 1 little Linden dollar?  Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Sunflowers and Sunshine

My entire outfit, from the jaunty floral top, to the button fly shorts, to the tips of my sunflower dappled sneakers, cost only one Linden dollar and a small investment of time spent searching in the Dog Days of Summer Hunt.  With slender shoulder straps, and pretty ruffled layers, this shirt is sure to brighten even the most cloudy day with its large, cheerful sunflowers scattered across a butter yellow background.  Worn black shorts adorned with a smiling sun on the back pocket help round out the look.  Finally, tip toe sneakers featuring a coordinating pattern add the perfect finishing touch.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is teleport on over to The Sissy Bar, and locate the hunt object (which is a small dog house) concealed within the store.  The hunt runs through July 31st, so you still have plenty of time left to do some sleuthing of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Eve Mesh Body in P and S
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

And now, I shall return to avoiding any and all housework reading my novel.  Until next time, happy hunting!

At The End of The Day

At the End of the Day

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  It’s been a long day of riding the waves, and the pupster and I are having one last look across the water before we head home for the night.  Today’s little get away to the shores of Kanaloa Surf Beach was inspired by a budget-friendly wet suit that I picked up over at La Perla.

Fits Me Like a Glove

Featuring a deep shade of indigo accented with bright blue piping and a dark gray inlay, this outfit will have you suited up in style.  The Surf Set Gift from La Perla covers the entire length of your legs to protect them from the chilly water and any scrapes and scratches you might encounter.  It includes half length sleeves and a high collar to keep you completely shielded from the elements.  The package contained classic mesh sizes from extra small through extra large, but no alpha layer.  Although there weren’t fits designed exclusively for mesh avatars, the small worked just fine on my Belleza Jake mesh body.  I’m including a forward facing snapshot below so you can get a good look at the logo splashed across the chest area.  Ladies, don’t despair, there is a female version included for you as well.  I couldn’t drag Kat out with me today….maybe next time!  If you’re up for a surfing adventure, head on over to the group gift wall at La Perla.  For just one Linden dollar, you’ll be well equipped for a day of play at the beach.

Sizes Included:

  •  XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL

Happiness Comes in Waves

Until next time, happy shopping!

Discoveries at Dawn

Dawn of a New Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a lovely Sunday.  Before the weekend is over, I want to tell you about two group gifts that I came across early this morning in my SL travels.  Although I chose white for the dress, it comes with a texture HUD packed with 15 options, including prints and solids, so it’s very versatile!

Dress to Impress

The free Katie Dress from Hilly Haalan Fashions features a sleeveless design with loosely draping fabric which is gathered at the waist with a belt.  A v-shaped neckline and a small gathered section in the skirt add visual interest.  I really like the soft shimmering texture of each of the solid colored options for the fabric, and look forward to trying out the pretty floral prints, too.  The belt is colorized separately from the body of the dress, which really adds to the variety of looks you can create.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (no classic fits).  To pick up this free July gift for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Fabulous Shoes That Can Lift Your “Sole”

Of course, what would a new dress be without a pair of heels to go with it?  Selene Creations has you covered with their free July group gift, which is a strappy pair of sexy high heels.  With plenty of wiggle room for your toes and a criss-cross design, these ivory shoes would challenge my navigational skills in real life with their high, narrow heels, but in Second Life, walking and even running in them is a piece of cake!  The package includes Belleza, Maitreya and Slink fits.  You do have to be a member of the Selene Creations group to receive these, and joining costs 100L, but they are just so pretty!  Here’s a close up so you can get a better look at them:

Chase Your Dreams....In High Heels of Course!

I’m off to finish exploring Snuggles Forest with Ripley.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
