It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

The First Snow

FabFree: The First Snow

Hello there Fabulouses!  Living in Canada, it is definitely not the first snow of the season for me in real life, but this is the first bit of snow this season that I have seen in Second Life!  The Atheneaum Sim is twinkling beautifully with sparkly fresh snow, and for just a while I forget that I hate winter, because it’s so pretty!

Good thing I had a new parka!

Actually I had two new parkas, because at Scandalize on the massive group gift wall there is the Parka in White AND Midnight that includes the top in two versions and the hooded furry parka.  I decide to wear the white top from the white set and the midnight coat from the midnight set, but you can wear them however you like.  Also included, but not shown on my avatar is a tailed version of the top!  The Scandalize inworld group is 100L to join, but you’re totally missing out if you aren’t in it!  At least go check out the wall of gifts!

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

Sometimes in the Middle of Nowhere, You Find Yourself

Hello Fabulous Readers!  This afternoon, Ripley and I spent some time wandering through the fields over on the Yorkshire sim.  I just love the color of the sky, the  landscaping, and the general atmosphere there.  If you haven’t been, it’s a lovely place to visit!  My outfit today fit right in with the meadow due to the sprinkling of flowers across my skirt.  I picked it up over at Inventory Trends for just 30 Linden dollars.

A Fortunate Find

When Rip and I arrived at the Inventory Trends shop, I spotted the in store gacha machines over on the right as soon as I entered.  Always on the lookout for a bargain, I wandered over to take a look, and knew I just had to have the Diana outfit.  The machine is stocked with 3 different skirts and tops as separates, and two rare combinations with the skirt and top together in one package.  In my very first try, I was rewarded with a cute duo with a white crop top and white floral skirt.  I could have just as easily blogged that combo, but I really wanted to pick up the black version, so I decided to give it just one more shot (my famous last words with gacha machines…..just one more try….), and to my surprise, an inventory offer popped up on my screen with the words “Rare 1” and I did a little happy dance right then and there!  I quickly teleported home, then donned the strappy black crop top and cheery maxi.  The black shirt hugs your curves in a flattering way, and the long, generously cut skirt features bright blossoms in magenta and lime green.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop and give the machine a try.  If you don’t like the black version I am wearing, there are also a solid red, a solid back and a white skirt with a rose print to try for,  as well as red, pink or yellow crop tops.   For just 30L, it’s a fairly budget-friendly opportunity.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week ahead of you filled with plenty of good luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Down in The Shire

The Elven Way

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Rip and I are popping in with a quick post featuring a fantastic outfit, which is perfect for role play.  The entire ensemble, from cape to boots, is all included in the prize for The Red Hunt from Feyline Fashions, and it only cost 10L.  The Red Hunt is in support of Team Diabetes of SL, an official and authorized team of the American Diabetes Association.  All proceeds from the hunt go directly to Team Diabetes of SL.  I have several family members in RL who suffer from diabetes, so I am happy to participate in this hunt and pay just 10L each for some fantastic prizes.

The Elven Way

Once I began wearing the different components of the Vashti Anduine outfit, I just knew I was going to wear some fantasy elf ears and head on over to The Shire for an extended visit.  The prize package includes everything I’m wearing in my picture from the necklace and cape right down to the high heel boots.  I love the pairing of deep red and dark blue along with the golden accents.   A collared cape and belly jewel are also tucked inside the box, but I opted not to wear them.  The generous designer included classic avatar versions as well as an Omega Applier, so there is something for everyone in this prize, and you get it all for just 10 Linden dollars.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Applier
  • Top
  • Sleeves
  • Body Veils
  • Cape and Collared Cape version
  • Collar
  • Belt
  • Chest Medallion
  • Necklace
  • Pants
  • Skirt
  • Boots (includes alpha layer and boot base)

Back Down the Hunt Trail We Go

The pupster and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can come across on the trail of The Red Hunt.  We’ll be searching for the red and gray diabetes awareness ribbon.  The hunt, which features red items, runs through right through Diabetes Awareness Month, so you have until November 30th to scoop up some fabulous goodies and support a great cause.  Until next time, happy hunting!
