Someday, My Prince Will Come…

Sleeping Beauty

But why wait around when you can ride a unicorn instead?

With so much crazy going on in RL, I’ve been enjoying a little fantasy escape in my SL. And *{Junbug}* has a new group gift out that suited my mood perfectly. 🙂

The Sleeping Beauty dress is available for Maitreya mesh bodies only, but I’m sure you could probably fit it to other mesh bodies if you tried. There is a notecard in the folder explaining that the dress is a “corseted style,” meaning that the waist is meant to look “unnaturally small.” But if you feel that the waist is too small for your liking, you can use your torso sliders to put a little weight on… which is what I did.

And what does every princess need?

A tiara, of course! And I was happy to find this one for free at Chop Zuey (no group required). A resizer is included, so just touch the tiara to make it larger or smaller. As with all Chop Zuey products, the details are impeccable; I love the heart-shaped diamonds on each side of the center diamond.

I’m off now to look for some rainbows. ❤

Stood Up

Waiting_001

Stood up.

He said we had a date, and I was all decked out. Dressed to the nines. Fit to kill. You know how it goes. You find just the gown at ALB that can’t be passed up, especially since it’s free. I opted out of the full skirt and kept it simple, going only for the slinky white part with the draping back and the low cut neckline and then I waited at the door but he never showed up. It’s a good thing the dress didn’t cost me anything… or I might have more in the way of revenge than just petty aggravation on my mind.

Of course if you have an upcoming date, you can get this dress too… and it comes in all the right sizes: fitmesh XS – XL as well as Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

Waiting_002

Pairing things up.

I had a flair for dramatics. (So does he… I’m sure he’ll have some excuse.) So I added this jewelry from Lazuri to my dress. It’s the current group gift out. I’m showing you the necklace and cuff bracelets, but there were also rings and earrings too. They are even color change, with a choice of silver or gold metal and an ability to change the color of the pearls as well. Lazuri frequently sets out large sets of color change gifts, so though the group fee is 250L, it means a lot of jewelry for your group fee.

I wonder if he’ll show up late to pay the ticket for the bottle of wine I ordered…

Ready for Red?

A Shade of Red for Every Woman

Hello Fabulous Readers!  On Monday, when Love posted about Agata (here), the lovely new Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift, Ripley and I trotted right over to Kamiri.  With one click, I scooped up this gorgeous dress.  Designed for both classic and mesh avatars, Agata will hug your every curve and its deep, red hue will flatter any complexion.  With a daring plunging neckline, but still coverage in all the right places, you can add some elegant jewelry and be ready for an evening out, or opt for a less formal, everyday look.  Either way, you’re sure to shine!

On a Bad Day, There's Always Lipstick

A touch of Cherry Glossy Lipstick from Curves, which I discovered on The Marketplace for a mere 70L, and the Enchanted Red Ruby and Black Onyx jewelry set from Lazuri continued my “Lady in Red” theme.  Right now, Lazuri has this accessory set on promo on The Marketplace for only 50L!  Included is a necklace, bracelet, rings, earrings and even a tiara (not shown).  Wearing red (my favorite color) always makes me smile, and knowing I got such a lovely frock for free made me practically dance with joy.  Even Ripley happily wagged his tail with approval when he saw my completed look.

To add Agata to your SL closet, all you need to do is teleport over to Kamiri, wear your Fabulously Free in SL Group tag, and give the group gift sign a quick tap.  To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule on Sunday with another Fabulous Find for you.  Until then, happy shopping!

Boho butterflies, and violet blooms…Spring is here, at least for a little while

Hello all you Fabulous readers! I hope your week has been as good as mine (I took this week off from RL work, so my week has been wonderful). To make things even better for me, it is feeling an awful lot like Spring in my neck of the woods, despite it being the middle of February only. I know we will have another bout of winter, that’s always the way the weather works, but for now, I am enjoying the sunshine, and thought I would represent the Spring feeling in my post for today.

butterflyboho1

It all started with a trip to *Glitter*. I was actually there to slap a MM board, but while looking around, I noticed a free group gift I had not picked up before. How I missed it, I do not know. The Macy Boho Long mesh dress comes in all the standard sizes, and the colour is just gorgeous. The group is free to join, just throw on your tag and click the picture to get your gift. There are a few other gifts out as well, make sure you grab them too.

I wanted jewelry that had colours just as pretty as my dress, and found the perfect set while wandering around The Free Dove. The Cocoa Island Violets necklace and earring set is from Lazuri, and is free for everyone. The stones and metal are texture change by touch, as well, you can resize them. You may actually remember seeing this beautiful set a few months ago when it was a group gift from Lazuri, as Astrid did a lovely job of showing it off HERE. I just adore The Free Dove, and if it’s been awhile since you’ve gone, then you need to go visit again. There are always great new gifts being put out, and I am sure you will find stuff to snap up.

My last 2 items that helped keep me in the ‘Spring’ mood, came from the sister stores of Bella Elephante, and Elelphante Poses. I saw that Elephante Poses was participating in the hunt for this round of Enchantment, and headed over to do a little hunting. The free hunt gift you will receive, when you find the hidden book, is a pose prop called Flutter. It is a mesh set of glowing white butterflies that has 5 built in poses. Funny thing, I didn’t realize it was a ‘rezz and sit’ type of prop, so I wore it instead 😛 Though you could easily take the poses out of the butterflies and create a version you wear for sims where you don’t have rez-capabilities. Just a thought. You will need to grab the hunt hud from the hunt poster at the store to be able to receive your gift. Just have it on when you find it, and you will get Flutter for free. The HUD conviently shows all the other stores participating and their LM’s as well. Once you have grabbed your hunt gifty, head across the way to Bella Elephante, and at their desk, you will see the board for the freebie nail hud I am showing off here, called Bloom, and all the colours are perfect for Spring. It is for SLink nails only, and it is free for everyone! Make sure you grab the Autumn themed set that is sitting right behind the Bloom nails too, they are free as well.

Well, I hope I have been able to inject some Spring into your day, as I know not everyone has been having such lovely weather. I’m off for now, but until we meet again, TTFN!

Snow Angel

Snow Angel 1

I once had a mentor in my life give me a little gold stick pin that said we all had guardian angels in our lives. This gift from Paris Metro reminded me a bit of the sweet nostalgia I felt the other day when I found that small gift tucked away in my jewelry box.

This lovely gift from Paris Metro is FREE with your FREE group join, and you can get it by stopping by the main store to pick it up there. It includes system and applier layers for Belleza, Slink, and Omega, a flexi skirt, sculpted belt and back bow, the wings shown, and a beautiful lead glass ornament (not shown).

Snow Angel 2

Lazui has also put out a set of beautiful new gifts for their group members in the form of this Renata Emeralds Set. For your 250L group join fee, you can get two different necklaces, both bracelets, and two earring styles all FREE. Lazuri is generous about giving out regular gifts, so don’t let the fee deter you.

My lovely Snow Queen pose is an advent gift from Eternal Dream Poses. Yes, the advents are still going on and it’s not too late to get in on some of the advent generosity! To get this pose you have two options, pay 10L if you are short on group space (a tiny fee for such a beautiful pose) or join the group for 200L and get all the advent gifts FREE — plus gifts for the rest of the year as well! The snowflake in the picture I have tinted to gold, but it was originally blue (tinted from white). It’s modifiable, so you can tint it whatever color you like to fit your snowy scene.

Trillion Dollar Daisy

Generosity is the spirit of the season, and creators in second life are no exception. Gifts simply abound this month and now is your chance to stock up on beautiful items for your wardrobe.

Trillion Dollar Look 1

I was doing a little bit of grid wandering, and I came across two items you won’t want to miss out to help you chase away any winter evening chills.

First, if you stop by Paisley Daisy, be sure sure to join the group (if you are not already in it) and pick up the latest FREE group gift, which is this elegant coat called Vintage Jackie 0 Style Dress/Coat. It is a coat or dress depending on how you wear it, though I paired it with some leg warmers for a look that suited my style. The coat comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as the fitted mesh size which I am wearing — because that is the size that accommodated my fuller avatar figure without forcing me to move down my sliders — yay!

The Paisley Daisy group is 100L to join, but there are quite a few past group gifts out to nab, with monthly group gifts out to follow, making this small group join fee well worth the lindens.

Trillion Dollar Look 2

I hadn’t stopped by Lazuri in a while to see if there was anything new, so I decided to take a stroll through the stores spacious offerings of glittering gems and precious pearls just to see what I could find. While there, I saw that they had up a new subscribo by the group gift section and clicked it just for updated news, and lo and behold it sent me FREE gifties!

There were quite a few items in the gift box, but my absolute favorite was this Trillion Ring which is not only stunning in style and contrast, but is color change as well for versatility. The options include 4 metal colors and 11 gem colors. I am showing it off in silver and onyx in the picture above.

Be sure to hurry to pick these items up. While the Paisley Daisy coat is a gift for the month of December, the Lazuri gift is subscribo, so it may not last long. Don’t wait and miss out!

Cocoa Island Violets With A Twist

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [1]

Neville Bell: Oh no, you can’t take my photograph.
Sue Charlton: Oh, I’m sorry, you believe it will take your spirit away.
Neville Bell: No, you got lens-cap on it.
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

So I went a little crocodile Dundee this week (as you can see) but it was well worth my while and I think I would make even Sue Charlton proud! The Twisted Hunt is not quite over yet, though you’ll need to hurry to get any of the last minute gifts you want. You’ve got until Oct 19th, to finish this wicked hunt for cubes. My dress today is {MOEKO} Elegantly Alternative’s FREE offering for the Twisted Hunt Gift and well worth the difficult walkabout through the jungle of cubes.

This great gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as a lovely (optional) mesh glittery overlay which I couldn’t pass up wearing. After all… even down under, Sue Charlton would not have!

Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: If I give my heart to you…
[pause]
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: Then I’ll have none and you’ll have two…
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

And this gorgeous matching jewelry and hat from Lazuri just stole *my* heart! So, I topped off my look with the latest round of FREE offerings from Lazuri which are just stunning to behold. The Cocoa Island Violets jewelry and hat are not to be missed.

If you are not in the group already, the invite will set you back 250L, but the regular gifts make it worthwhile, and even just for this one time, you’re going to get two different necklace styles, two different bracelet styles, two different earring styles, two different ring styles, and the hat. All are resizable and all have a color change Hud with different shades of violet, lavender, indigo, purple, etc.!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!
