I Would Walk 500 Miles

Entice500MileLB

And I would walk 500 more…

You won’t have to walk that many miles to the Entice Lucky Boards where I picked up The 500 Miles Outfit for free!  Just take “the TP” and it will pop you right down in front of the board!  Previously I have shown you several of the lucky board prizes at Entice which are still available, but this satin mint beauty is the newest addition.  The jacket, blouse and skirt go all on your avatar in one click, and you can choose from three different scarves to add to your outfit.  There is a texture change HUD included that allows you to change the colour of the skirt, blouse and jacket separately in three different co-ordinating textures each.

Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Scarf Colours:  Aqua, Coral & Grey
  • Texture Change HUD

500 Miles - Pattern Lights

Other Lucky Board Prizes Still Available:

Hope your letter comes up quickly!

Sparkle and Shine

Blog coming soon to FabFreeHey there Fab Friends!  The other day, when I posted about a 60L special at Siss Boom, I mentioned that I was actually going in to pick up the new group gift!

Well here she is…

The Fireside Formal Mum Gown is the latest addition to the very large selection of group gifts at Siss Boom which you can find right at the entrance in the VIP shelf.  This is a real keeper for me as I am in love with both the design and the shimmery silver texturing.  It will fit you like a glove on the following mesh bodies…

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

This group does have a bit of a steep join fee at 500L, but seriously…  tons of really high quality gifts to snag including formal wear, casual wear, lingerie and even footwear and accessories.  Join it – and stay in it!

ps.  (hangs head) and be careful not to accidentally leave it when you are checking the join fee like I did…  I may have to pay to rejoin! lol

Not a Cloud in the Skye

Listen to Your Heart
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday at last!  Here I am enjoying one final moment at the shore (Ripley is off chasing gulls) before the shopping and prep work for Thanksgiving begin.  It sure would be nice to spend the whole weekend here at NorderNey, curled up on the beach with a pile of books.  Someday, maybe!

A Hint of Pink in the Skye

My sweet swimwear from Just Ordinary features white hearts scattered across a pale pink background.  “Skye” features realistic folds in the fabric, and golden half circle closures on both the bikini top and swimsuit bottom.  I love the flared skirt, asymmetrical hemline, and the ties that dangle down my back.  To add this free group gift to your beach wear collection, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Just Ordinary group tag (it’s completely free to join), and tap the group gift vendor.  This package offers something for everyone – from classic mesh, to fit mesh and versions for popular mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Off to Save Some Birds

The poor seagulls……  The pupster has been having the time of his life chasing them up and down the surf while I tried to capture the perfect picture.  One feathered fellow just caught my eye, and I could tell he was getting pretty fed up with Rip’s antics.  It’s time for mission “Gull Rescue” to swing into operation.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Under the Cedars

Secret Garden
Happy Pre-Friday, Fabulouses!  Oooooh have I found a gorgeous, sexy gown for you today!  When Ripley and I were wandering the grid, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest free gift from monaLISA.  Quick as a wink, we popped on over to the shop, and scooped up this beauty.  If you’re not a group member already, for just a 70L join fee, you can add the spellbinding Maite gown to your inventory, too.

Gold Trimmed Ebony

With a slit that offers a glimpse of shapely legs, and a daring cut in the bodice, this sleeveless dress sets off your figure beautifully.  Sleek ebony fabric hugs your curves, and drapes to a slightly flared, floor-length hemline.  Softly gleaming gold edging surrounds the border of the skirt, and adds a glamorous touch.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It’s so Close, I Can Almost Taste It

We’re almost to the weekend….yay!  Here’s hoping the rest of your work week passes smoothly.  I know I’ll have a busy Saturday in RL.  Thanksgiving managed to sneak up on me this year.  Sheesh!  Where did November go?  Over the weekend, I plan to make sure I have all the ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving Holiday dinner.  (I know our Canadian friends already celebrated – we’re a little behind them here in the USA).  The pupster put in a special request for a double batch of Ripley Snacks.  My favorite, however, has to be pumpkin pie.  What’s yours?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Red and Green Season

Red and Green Season

Ready or Not…

And I’m not.

In my neck of the woods, red and green season actually started back in September. I’ve been in serious denial about it, but unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore.

Seems like we just put away the holiday decorations a few weeks ago, and now it’s time to get them back out again. 😛

It’s Easy Being Green…

In this sparkly new gift from I. M. Collection!

Shortly after I shared their latest group gift, I. M. Collection put out a lovely new gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group.

The Eirwen Sweater Dress comes in sizes for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. Also included for Maitreya bodies is an applier for these pretty, jeweled tights. 12 different color textures are included so you can wear them with different outfits all winter long.

Keeping it Short

I do love a short ‘do, and this one is no exception.

When I saw the amazing HairOLogy anniversary gifts that Pru picked up (see them HERE and HERE), I decided to head over and grab them for myself!

Delrio, the HairOLogy gift from Tukinowaguma, comes in a full fatpack of colors and would likely look nice on the fellas as well as the ladies. I love the way the bangs fall carelessly over one eye. 😉

Be sure to stop by HairOLogy before November 30th to see what’s new and pick up all the pretty gifts (no group needed)!

Cotton Candy After Midnight

Wrapped in a Cozy Cardigan

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  On chilly fall days such as this, I love, love, love to cloak myself in a toasty warm cardigan.  Ripley and I recently teleported over to @rOrO to take a look around, and I’m so glad we did!  I picked up my new, super-long sweater as a free Midnight Mania prize there.  All I had to do was tap the board on the wall, cross my fingers, and hope that the target of 10 slaps would be reached by midnight.  Sure enough, when the clock struck 12, my prize was delivered!

Raspberry and Teal

Featuring an ombre color scheme composed of a jewel-like raspberry hue fading to a dusky teal, this sweater-jacket kept both my arms and legs shielded from the brisk air.  The playful diamond-shaped pattern on the outer shell coordinated beautifully with the solid-colored shirt underneath.  This sexy little crop top offered a glimpse of my tummy, but I was comforted by the fact that should the wintery air become too uncomfortable, all I had to do was pull together the sides of my cardigan to warm up.  I really liked the added detail of the dark necklace, which is included as part of the top.   To pick up this Cotton Candy Argyle Cardigan and Shirt for yourself, simply journey to @rOrO and give the board a tap.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

While you’re at the store,  here’s hoping that your letter will come up on the lucky boards.  There are also a variety of dollarbies on the wall offered for sale, and a collection of group gifts as well, including one for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
