As Luck Would Have It…

As Luck Would Have It

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post to share a stunning free skirt I picked up as a lucky board prize at .Lunaria.  The Kaelyn maxi skirt falls in a slender line from your hips to about mid-shin length, where it flares as it sweeps the ground for freedom of movement.  Ivory white in color (the windlight setting I used made it look greenish for some reason, but it is white), it features circular adornments at the waistline, which add visual interest.  I really love the sleek, sophisticated look this outfit evokes!  Kaelyn comes in sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Lunaria group tag (it’s completely free to join), and cross your fingers.  I was lucky enough to scoop this baby up during my first few minutes of waiting.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S and M (I don’t see an L in my folder, but that could be a glitch in unloading the package)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

About the Pie…

So, to give you an update:  while Ripley snoozed the afternoon away today, I *was* successful in creating a pie.  I have to admit, though, it took two tries to get a crust that rolled out large enough for the pie plate.  It smelled so delicious as the oven worked its magic.  We will see tomorrow how it tastes.  I’m hoping my luck holds out for a flavorful pie as well as it did for all my lucky board prizes in SL!  Until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating, and happy shopping to all our Fabulous Readers!

A special Gift

Glitterati by Sapphire has put out a special gift… the 9th Anniversary gift for the store. It’s a beautiful dress in a soft textured pink with a white lace hem and white lace sleeves. It’s perfect for every day casual wear, or even a date night.

You’ll need to wear your Glitterati group tag to get the dress and that will cost 100L, but it gives you access to every single past group gift that Glitterati has ever put out… and since the creator puts out a monthly group gift like clockwork, that’s a lot of gifts to be had. Plus you’ll get to look forward to another group gift come December! So this is a group well worth its join fee.

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya

  • Belleza

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Jingle Those Bells!

Jingle Those Bells

Some might say it’s too early to start donning the Christmas gear, and usually I’d agree.  However, I just couldn’t wait to show you all this gorgeous group gift from Violent Seduction.

Winter Wonderland

Wearing the Astral Christmas dress that I found, I suddenly felt the urge to head to the North Pole.  Perhaps I was a bit foolhardy wearing such a skimpy dress to the frozen regions of the world, but the magical aura at the North Pole Village and Santa’s Workshop sim drove the cold from my mind.

The elves were merrily capering about, and the crystalline caves glittered before me.  Before I knew it, I was helping wrap gifts, and Santa himself was doing a practice run in his sleigh.

Lo and behold, the Christmas spirit had taken over, and I had to remind myself that it was still November.  Ahwell, I guess I’ll deck the halls anyway!

Astral Christmas

As I mentioned, this gorgeous red dress that caused me to cavort with elves is a free group gift at Violent Seduction.  The group is currently 100 Lindens to join, but they do have some other great gifts out, as well as three group boards, two of which Love previously blogged about HERE and HERE.

Sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Well guys, I’m going to go jingle some bells and hang out with the Sugar Plum fairy!

Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

25L Tuesday_001

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!

Monday is Cancelled

Oh, hey there… you found me.

Yeah, I’m still sitting here drinking my coffee. To be honest, I was completely unable to adult today. Sure, I had tons of stuff to do, but I didn’t get any of it done. I’ll be sorry tomorrow. :-/

But for now, I just gonna sit here quietly and enjoy my coffee.

Coffee and Comfort

I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything done today soon as I put on this cozy outfit. The Parka Dress is the latest group gift from S@BBiA, and it comes in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer. I love not having to make decisions – like what size to wear – early in the morning.

To keep my feet toasty, I added the Baby It’s Cold Outside boots from Entice. You can pick up a pair for free by joining the SL Frees & Offers in-world group. The boots come in rigged and unrigged versions with an alpha layer so they should fit just about everyone.

Ok, I guess it’s time to pack it up and go inside. In the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all, tomorrow is another day.” 🙂

Just a Boho Girl and Her Pup

Just a Girl and Her Dog
Hello Fabulouses!  Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend must never have owned a dog.  Ripley brings me far more joy than any jewel ever could….although I do have to admit that a diamond wouldn’t have outrageous vet bills………  Aww, don’t worry boy, you’re still my #1!

Speaking of the Number 1…

Yesterday in my post {HERE} I highlighted a lovely dress that I picked up from Brii Underground for a song.  What I didn’t tell you at that time was that there are quite a few goodies at the store, all available for just one Linden dollar.  My beautiful boho outfit is one of them.  From the jeweled headband and accessories, to the hemline of my maxi skirt, the Mireia outfit includes everything I’m wearing.  I love the realistic texture of the cropped tank top, and the way its hue is echoed in the pattern of the skirt.  Raspberry and teal always look so delicious together!  The generous designer thought of everything you need for this complete outfit, including feathered earrings, a necklace, and a slender bow to accentuate your waistline.  There’s even a pair of sunglasses and a make up applier that I opted not to wear.  The lovely floral tattoo is also tucked inside the package.  I don’t normally wear body art, but this one was just too pretty to pass up.  To add Mireia to your inventory, teleport over to the shop, and locate the vendor in the 1L section on the front wall.  There’s no group required!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh skirt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Fit mesh top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Tattoo applier for classic avatars as well as Maitreya and Omega
  • Omega Make Up Applier for Catwa Head

Until my next post, happy shopping!

True Colours

When I’m feeling playful, I always reach out for some bright colours to wear.  You really can’t beat a pastel hair colour, and some hot pink.  Luckily, these generous SL creators have got my back!  My sweet do’ was a gift at Hairology, and was previously blogged by Pru HERE.

Hot in Hot Pink

Safira has a few free group gifts out right now, and one of them is this bright and cheerful jumpsuit.  It comes in a shiny midnight blue as well, for the days when you’re feeling only slightly less exuberant.  The Safira group is free to join, and there are quite a few nice group gifts in the store.  It’s definitely worth the visit!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The North Star

Cae has a birthday gift out right now to celebrate 5 years of pretty jewelry in Second Life.  The North Star bracelet features super cute silver stars that encircle your wrist, and a larger silver charm adorned with blue gems.  Very delicate!  The group is currently 100 Linden to join, and you can find the group gift in the notices section of the group profile.  I’ve included a closeup below so you can see the detailing.

Ok Fab Free – go light up the world with those bright colours!

What’s In Your SL Wallet?

NunoHey FabFree! It’s time to check under those couch cushions and scrape up some all the little lindens you can find because N-Uno has some big sales going on in their Marketplace Store, and when I say sales…  I don’t mean 100L, or 75L or even 50L…  I MEAN 1L!

ENTIRE FATPACKS FOR 1L!

Infact almost everything is priced at 1L so you can shop for hours on a handful of change!  The best way to make your lindens go farther is to skip the single outfits first and go straight for the fatpacks, and then go back to the main marketplace link for other single items that are not sold in fatpacks.  Below you will find first a link to the marketplace store, and then below it you will find a link to just the fatpack items, so you can easily skip over the singles and get more bang for your buck.  Again..  make sure you check out the whole store though – as some items are only sold in singles.

Mama Mia, What A Deal!

In my photo above, you will find me wearing three items from the N-Uno Marketplace store that I picked up for 1L each in full fatpacks.  The Mia Bodysuit, Skirt and Jacket (animated to keep your arms in!) all come in five standard mesh sizes with alpha layers.  Their vendor ad is shown below to give you an idea of fabric textures included.
