Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

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!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!

I Like it Sweet and Spicy

Hello everyone, and happy happy Sunday! I know, It  seems like forever since I last posted, but hopefully, the gifts I am showing you all today will make up for that! Remember my last post about the Spring Fair hunt going on over at the German Land Holding Estate? Well, I’ve got 4 more gifts to show you all, and I think you will like them.

First, let me refresh your memory about this hunt. Head over to the German Land Holding Estate, and grab your free Easter egg basket from one of the many baskets placed around the Spring Fair. Add it to your arm, and start walking around and grab free eggs. It’s as easy as that.

I like it Sweet and Spicy

My sweet and spicy look starts with this fairly flirty dress, which is the gift from {VEE}’s. The Maylie dress is mesh, and comes in standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Bellezza and SLink sized versions. It also comes with a texture change hud that gives you 3 lovely colours to choose from (I forgot to take pictures of the aqua and pale pink choices, DOH!!) Now, when I opened my gift, there were a few sizes missing for me, including my usually worn M, but once I contacted the designer, she very quickly sent me the missing sizes! Love great customer service. I’ve included a shot of the back, so you can see how pretty it is, I love the straps.

I like it Sweet and Spicy

Sticking with the straps motif, and adding the spicy to my sweet and spicy look, are my spiky foot straps from Living Vintage Couture. They are rigged mesh, and while I am wearing them with my SLink high feet, they may be able to be worn with other mesh high feet, as they aren’t a super tight fit. See my pretty toenails? The gift from Perfect Seduction is a nail hud with these 2 lovely polish choices. You get a SLink hud, and an Omega hud, so almost everyone should be happy :). My last addition, brings me back to the sweet. The lily pearl earrings I have on are from DAMIANII, and I think they were the perfect final touch. Hard to believe all these goodies are free, with just a little hunting needed.

The Spring Fair, and corresponding hunt, run until the end of April, so if you didn’t head over there after my last post, you still have plenty of time to get your egg hunt on.

Alright all you lovely readers, I am off for now, but I heard tell of a limited time goodie that I wanted to show off, so I will be back soon! Until then, TTFN.

The Heat Wave Event: Living Vintage Couture

Snapshot_005 Hello Fabulouses! Today in my blog post I am showing off the delightful items that you can pick up on the Living Vintage Couture display at The Heat Wave Event!  In the above photo I am wearing their 50L feature item which is the Blossom Collection Three.  This item includes the classic summer denim shorts and the summer blossom top shown –  as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the shorts between black or blue and the top in four different floral colours.  If you are just after the shorts you can find them priced by themselves too – for just 10L.

As you can see from the photo below there are nine summery 10L items  in the way of ladies fashion and footwear to choose from and the 50L feature outfit.
