C’est La Vie

La Vie

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday!  As you can see, Ripley and I had a lazy morning over on the La Vie sim today.  I tossed some crumbs to this adorable gaggle of geese while the pupster supervised, making sure no Ripley snack pieces were in the mix.  What a lovely way to start the day!

As Luck Would Have It

Yesterday, I shared a group gift that I had picked up over at Zoom Design.  When I went back to the store to pick up the landmark for my post, I happened to glance over at the group only Lucky Boards, and was thrilled to see a “K” appear.  Quick as a wink, I tapped the board, and became the proud new owner of this Gizele Outfit.  The free package included a separate crop top, skirt, and four texture color change HUD.  I chose the black floral design, but could have gone with solid black, solid brown or a brown floral pattern.  The top includes lacing which criss-crosses through golden eyelets; it’s sexy, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The skirt reaches to almost knee length and features a slit in the side.  In the photo, it appears like there are two slits, but that is an illusion created by the sit position – there is actually just one slit on the left side.  Sorry about that, but I just love the romantic nature of the pose in the swing, so I opted to go with this photo, and explain about the skirt.  To pick up a copy of this sweet outfit for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Zoom Designs group tag, and cross your fingers.  Hopefully your special letter will appear quickly!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

New Tresses

On Friday, I received a group notice from the Olive VIP group regarding a new release, so I popped over to the shop to take a look.  While there, I scooped up some of the VIP gift hairs on the shelf and noticed the Aries style, which is part of the Zodiac Collection.  This gorgeous, full, side-parted, shoulder length style frames the face in luxurious waves.  The free gift package for group members includes a FULL fat pack of color options, so it’s a wonderful treat.  Also on the shelf, you’ll find the newest group gift, an updo called Skee, as well as a variety of other free items.  If you are not a group member, you can purchase the Aries Zodiac Collection at the store.

The crumbs have all been gobbled up, the geese have dispersed, and Ripley is giving me that “I’m STARVING!” look with his deep chocolate eyes.  He WAS a good boy, and made no move to “share” the breadcrumbs with the birds, so it’s time to head on home, and reward his model behavior.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Growing My Awareness

Rockin' the Polka Dots

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy April!  It’s always so exciting to have a new month roll around, so my pal Ripley and I can dust off his tracking harness and hit the trail.  My outfit today is from an April hunt that is not only fun, but also works to raise awareness about Autism, which affects 1 in 50 children.  I am so happy to do my part to support MixMatchMissy with this endeavor.  Her goal with this hunt is to encourage people to “pay it forward by thinking of how you can assist at least one person with autism into feeling safe, included, and valued.”  If you’d like to learn more about Autism or the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, please take a moment to visit MixMatchMissy’s blog post about the topic.

Rockin’ the Polka Dots

This adorable crimson frock with white polka dots from Thirteen is just simply adorable!  I love, love, love the cut out section in the front that allows for a peek at your midsection, and the high cut sides.  Playful spaghetti straps and a back that dips just below your shoulder blades round out the look.  Its eye catching color combination is sure to raise your spirits.  The prize package includes versions for mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can add this fun dress to your spring wardrobe completely for free once you locate the hunt object concealed within the shop.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

This hunt runs until the end of April, and contains lots of beautiful gifts.  Many of them are free, and some cost 1 Linden dollar, but are well worth the teensy cost.  The pupster and I are going to continue on with the hunt, and look forward to sharing some more Fabulous Finds with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Looking for a Black Rose

BlackRose

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I were lucky enough to have some spare time to spend wandering the grid, and came across a beautiful frock to share with you today.  We hope you like it!

Fabulous and Free Frock

Just for being a member of the Fab Free group, you can scoop up this teal colored Lena dress over at BlackRose for the low price of………zero linden dollars.  Featuring criss-crossed shoulder straps , a curve-hugging design, and a hemline that falls to the knees, this baby will take you from a casual day look straight on into date night.  I love the realistic folds in the fabric and its flattering fit.  The deep hue will complement just about any skin tone, and its budget-friendly price tag will bring a smile to your face.  The package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies.  Since the Fab Free group has no join fee, you can add this lovely outfit to your wardrobe completely for free!

Well, that’s a wrap for today.  It’s time to head out grocery shopping before the snowbirds fill the aisles, and thereby double the amount of time it takes to complete this weekly chore.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

In the Pink

Hello Fabulouses!  It must be those blush colored tulips from my post {here} left me with pink on my mind, because today’s outfit continues that theme.  Like Loki, the pupster and I are working our way through the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and finding some wonderful goodies along the way.

In the Pink

We discovered my one shouldered Simple Chicness Gown at OMG! Inc.  For just one Linden dollar, I came away with a lovely formal frock complete with a HUD packed with ten options for colors.  I selected this pretty rose hue, but if pink is not your style, OMG! Inc. has you covered.  Featuring a long skirt, low waistline, and realistic wrinkles in the texture, this elegant dress is perfect for a date night or a casual stroll with your bff.  Although there were no mesh body versions in the gift box, I was able to adjust the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body to get a perfect fit.

Sizes Included:

  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L

Feeling Just Like a Princess

In addition to my new gown, I also picked up a gorgeous hairstyle as a free group gift over at Clawtooth.  This new ‘do features the Essentials HUD with 16 texture choices.  I love the simple floral headband which is included as well.  I opted for pink blossoms, but could have easily gone with one of five other selections.  You can even change the texture of the band itself to either yellow, white, in addition to the green I am wearing.  In order to pick up this hairstyle for yourself, you need to be a member of the Clawtooth by Clawtooth Update Group, however, there is no join fee, so your new tresses will be completely free.  I’m not sure how much longer the Princess Bride Group Gift will be available, so if you want to scoop up a copy for yourself, don’t delay.

Well, that wraps up my Fabulous Finds for today.  Ripley and I will be out and about searching for more budget friendly items to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

After Yesterday’s Rain

Misty Morning

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  After yesterday’s rain, the dawn arrived with a nearly cloudless sky, so Ripley and I decided to take a journey to Felicite Isle, one of our favorite sims for relaxing.  As small waves lapped against the shore, we paused among some wild flowers to capture a quick photo.

Fresh New Frock for Spring

I decided the other day to re-visit The Free Dove to see if there were any gifts recently made available, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover this free long sleeved dress from AvaGirl.  I’m not sure if it is a new addition to The Free Dove’s line up, or if I just had never seen it before, but once I spotted it, I knew it was destined for my inventory.  Featuring a full skirt that drapes to mid-thigh, a cute little cut out area on my tummy, and buttoned fasteners on the bodice, this frock made a wonderful addition to my spring wardrobe.  Best of all, it is completely free!  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to pick it up, however, there is no group join fee, so this new outfit will cost you exactly….zero linden dollars.  Now, that’s what I call a budget-friendly option!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Feeling Vibrant and Vivid

Vivi

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this gown just gorgeous?  Ripley and I wandered over to MH Unique Design and discovered this shimmering frock as a free gift for members of the MH Unique Design group.  With spaghetti straps, an intricate design on the bodice, and its full, floor length hemline, the Vivi dress will have you elegantly clothed for that special night on the town.  The gift includes versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, so it’s sure to fit most avatars.  Since we are close to the end of the month, and it’s a group gift, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  If you like this gown as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the store soon.  Since the group is completely free to join, you can pick up this lovely gift for a song.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • 2 alpha layers

Happiness and Prosperity

Pausing in the Meadow

Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  I can’t think of a better way to start the day than a stroll in a meadow sprinkled with wildflowers.  Too bad I don’t have access to something like this in RL!  Thankfully, Ripley and I stumbled across this little slice of heaven on the Cherishville sim.  Isn’t it just lovely?

Fortune Will Smile on You

I picked up this gorgeous strapless dress as a free Chinese New Year group gift (hence the Chinese New Year greetings) over at Zenith Fashion.  With rich, gold accents, an asymmetrical hemline, and an elegant floral textured fabric, this frock will hug your curves.  I especially love the diamond shaped accent piece that drapes down the thigh.  The generous designer included five color options (blue, purple, red, rose and white) all designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body, plus a texture change faux fur stole (5 selections), which I opted not to wear for my photo.  This has got to be one of my favorite recent additions to my inventory, and the best part is it was completely free!  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Zenith Fashion group, however, joining the group is also free.  Along with this lovely outfit, you can still collect past group gifts as well.

As much as I have enjoyed my interlude with the friendly horses in this tranquil environment, it’s time to drag myself back to reality, and get ready for work.  At least I only have today and tomorrow before I get some more time off.  This is definitely one sim that I’ve landmarked for return visits.  If you get a chance, I’d highly recommend checking it out.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hailing Hottie

Hailing Hottie

Hello Sweeties of the Fab Free variety!  Can’t a girl flag a cab looking absolutely fabulous?  Well I’m going to do it, and do it with style.   I found some free and cheap goodies to keep you smiling through your week!

A Cheeky Hipster

I meandered through the Hipster Fair, and found a boatload of awesome stuff!  Most display booths there have a little pressie for you in a mustache-shaped box.  The dress I’m wearing only cost me 1L at the Cheeky display.  I’m a massive fan of anything with a harness on it!  Plus it’s turquoise, so yay.  This dress comes with an HUD to change the colour of the straps, and it is sized for Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique.  While I was at the Hipster Fair, I also found these fab leg tattoos by Aurica for absolutely FREE! They work with Slink, Maitreya, Belleza bodies and also come with an Omega applier for good measure.   What awesomeness will you find at the Hipster Fair?

Shady Business

Another event currently happening is the 68 Main Event.  There are a few free gifts out, and as I meandered about, I picked up these awesome glasses and purse from Jumo.  I absolutely LOVE the detailing on the purse.  You can never have too many sparkly appliques if you ask my opinion!  To grab these gifts, just join the 68 Main group for free and clickety click!

I’m off to cocktails!
