Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach!  With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday.  I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy.  It will be wonderful!  I hope you have some time with family and friends, too.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Monday Monday

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I sure put his tracking harness to good use lately.  This time, we hit the trail on the Four Seasons Hunt 2 and discovered this gorgeous flowing skirt (called Petra) from Trashed.  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline, which is short in the front, but falls to knee length in the back, Petra drew many compliments as I wandered throughout SL.  A violet and green floral print splashed across a black background coordinates beautifully with a violet inner lining.  The waistline and side ribbons echo this contrasting hue.  I imagined the skirt trailing behind me on the breeze as Ripley and I strolled through the Mystical Fae Forest.  This has to be one of my most favorite hunt finds of all time.  I just adore this skirt!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • Fine

The Four Seasons Hunt 2 runs until July 30 and offers gifts priced at 1L each, which are themed for one of the four seasons.   There are 22 goodies to be discovered from a variety of talented designers.  Ripley and I look forward to bringing you another Fabulous Find soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

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!

Wild Rose

Rose

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I’m taking a quick break from housecleaning in RL to tell you about another discovery Ripley and I made at The Cart Wash.  The Wild Rose top from Mystic Dragon Designs features a floral print across a white background, a halter style neckline, and an asymmetrical open front, which offers a sexy peek at your belly button.   I really love the romantic, feminine look of this summery shirt, and you can scoop it up for only 10L at The Wash.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus
  • Werwolf

Sadly, the dog hair (thanks, Ripley!) is not vacuuming itself up, so I need to return to my cleaning.  Perhaps I should follow Serena’s example and pick up the Clean-o-Mat.  It sure would come in handy!  Or maybe you can train a dog to use a vacuum cleaner?  I wonder…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

Snapshot_006
Well hello there Fabulouses! Feast your eyes upon the very sexy Willow Jumpsuit by Just Because.  You can pick up this newly released, hot little set as a free group gift when you join the Just Because inworld group – which is free to join.  I think Just Because had you and your partner in mind with this one, because it really is a treat for two *winks*.

About the Willow Jumpsuit

The Willow Jumpsuit comes in three pieces that you can wear together or as separates, and includes a texture change HUD that allows you to mix and match textures between a few different holiday choices.  I really liked the lickable candy cane stripes, but the other options are very nice for the holidays too.

Under the Light of the Moon

Gazing up at the Moon
Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, while Ripley and I wandered through SL, he stopped, and gazed intently into the distance, then suddenly slipped from his collar.  He bolted away, leaving me holding a dangling leash, and the chase was on!  I finally caught up to him as he paced impatiently outside the Lucky Night Shop.  I tightened his collar up a notch, slipped it around his neck once more, then followed my hound with a nose for fashion over to the group gifts corner.  Sure enough, Ripley had discovered another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

A Dreamy, Draped Dress

Ripley’s nose pointed straight at the free Moon Dress, which is the current gift for the FitMesh Fanatics group.  Following the pupster’s lead, I switched over to my FitMesh Fanatics tag (the group is free to join), gave the group gift board a quick tap, and became the proud owner of this lovely, free gown. With softly draped folds gathered by a simple black belt at the waist, this floor-length gown reminds me of a Roman goddess dress.  A delicate shade of mauve, paired with a plunging neckline, and a daring, scooped back, lend this frock a feminine air.  I love the way it frees my skin to softly shimmer in the moonlight.  Simple, yet elegant, this gown would be perfect for role play, or an evening of dancing under the light of the moon.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza and Maitreya
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fitmesh

Ripley and I traveled to The Gates of Melancholy, and spent a quiet evening contemplating the stars and moonlight.  I wish you peace in this sometimes-hectic holiday season.  If you are fortunate to have your family near you, I hope you take a moment to hold them close, and let them know how much they mean to you.  I discovered recently just how fragile life can be, and I’m glad I had let my loved ones know how much I care while I still had time to do so.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

Just Because You’re Cynful

Snapshot_002
Hello FabFree! Just Because just put out this super cute Kathie Shirt in a Hibiscus print as a free group gift for their inworld VIPS (free to join!).  This top comes in Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza specific sizes and as you can see – it fits like a glove on my Maitreya Lara Body.   

As I was rummaging through my inventory for some bottoms to go with my new top, I remembered that I had recently won a 3/4 Denim Skirt at Cynful on the lucky boards and I think it goes quite nicely!  You will need to join their inworld group, however it’s free to join as well.

Bleh – it’s Monday tomorrow – hope this week goes quickly for you!
