A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

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

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!

Peace, Love & Camping

Peace, Love & Camping

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I just have to say that Second Life camping is so much more comfortable than Real Life camping. When I arrived to my site today, it was all set up.  My bed was made, the campfire was lit – even my camera was set out and ready to shoot some wildlife photos.  I swear sometimes camping in Real Life is simply setting up half the weekend and then dismantling it all for the rest of the weekend.  Next time, I think I’ll try my RL luck at The Holiday Inn, so I can log in here and get a comfortable camping fix.

Need a free spirited adventure of your own?

Getting dressed for one, is the first step!  You’ll need to take a trip to HashTag to pick up these Ripped Capri Dungarees (fitted for Maitreya Mesh Bodies) as a free group gift (free group join too!), and then head over to Loordes of London and hunt down a black rose hunt icon for the Glam or Grunge Hunt.  Once you find it – pay 1L and you’ll have the Right To Be Free top and vest combo.  It’s not super easy to see in my photo as my pose is a little hunched over, but the vest is decorated with all kinds of cool wild child things like buttons,etc.  This hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included:

  • 5 Standard Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

After Yesterday’s Rain

Misty Morning

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  After yesterday’s rain, the dawn arrived with a nearly cloudless sky, so Ripley and I decided to take a journey to Felicite Isle, one of our favorite sims for relaxing.  As small waves lapped against the shore, we paused among some wild flowers to capture a quick photo.

Fresh New Frock for Spring

I decided the other day to re-visit The Free Dove to see if there were any gifts recently made available, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover this free long sleeved dress from AvaGirl.  I’m not sure if it is a new addition to The Free Dove’s line up, or if I just had never seen it before, but once I spotted it, I knew it was destined for my inventory.  Featuring a full skirt that drapes to mid-thigh, a cute little cut out area on my tummy, and buttoned fasteners on the bodice, this frock made a wonderful addition to my spring wardrobe.  Best of all, it is completely free!  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to pick it up, however, there is no group join fee, so this new outfit will cost you exactly….zero linden dollars.  Now, that’s what I call a budget-friendly option!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Quiet Moments Lost in Thought

Lost in Thought

Well, hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy Saturday!  After a very late night (or early morning, I guess) in RL, I’m feeling a bit off track today.  I had to pick up a family member at the airport for a supposed midnight arrival, that turned out to be about an hour delayed.  The pupster and I didn’t get to sleep until about 2 am… eep!  Back in my wild and crazy  younger days, I could easily bounce back from a late evening, but now I find myself needing to sit and catch up.  I think Rip’s feeling the same way, because we both just plunked ourselves down near a fence line on the Whimberly sim this morning, and vegged.

Off the Shoulder

Luckily, it was a warm dawn in SL, so I was quite comfortable in my new “K2” shirt from the Petry Model Store.  This cropped top features a ruffled neckline, a one shoulder style, and a HUD that allows you to select from a variety of solid and print textures.  This floral pattern seemed just right for an early spring day, but if that’s not your style, you have 19 other options to choose from.  You can even opt to texturize the ruffle separately from the rest of the blouse.  Best of all, this little gem of a top is a free gift for members of the DM group, which is completely free to join!  In addition to this adorable shirt, there are a number of other free gifties set out; you’ll find them clustered on the wall nearby.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

I can see Ripley’s eyes drifting closed, and I’m feeling a bit sleepy myself.  We’re off to try to catch up on some Z’s.  Thankfully, we don’t have to deal with the time-change in our part of the world.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Oh, Lover Boy? C’mere Lover Boy!

Oooh, Lover Boy!

Sylvia
Yes, Mickey
How do you call your lover boy
Come here, lover boy
And if he doesn’t answer
Oh lover boy
And if he still doesn’t answer
I simply say
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you’re the one
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you’re the one

Come Here, Lover Boy

With so much lingerie being showing on the blog lately, you can sure tell that we’re getting in the mood for Valentine’s Day, lol!

Glitter recently set out this sexy number as a gift for getting their 7,000th group member. And since the group is free to join, you can make it yours for FREE!

Closer comes as two separate pieces in mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layers. The detailing of the lace and sequins is really quite pretty.

If you’re looking for a sexy pose for when you call your lover boy, you can pick up this one from Nanika on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Oh Sunshine Day

Oh Sunshine Day
Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all fine and well. Isn’t it amazing how sometimes your outfit can completely affect your mood? I do not mind admitting that I really had fun with this cute, yet simple outfit. I hope you enjoy these fun FREEbies as much as I do. First, I’ll tell you all about this fun skirt from Cremosas, then the equally fun pearls from Maxi Gossamer.

Skirt

There isn’t anything I dislike about this group gift skirt available at Cremosas. I also think it’s one of those versatile statement wardrobe pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on where and when you want to wear it.  To get your copy of this FREE group gift, head over to Cremosas and join their FREE in-world group. There is no cost to join the group. Alternatively if you do not have a group slot open, you can pick up this skirt on the Marketplace for just 50 linden, no group needed.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EVE – (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Altamura, TMP

Pearls

I love these FREE group gift pearls from Gossamer Jewelry. They are such a pale shade of pink, I almost didn’t notice they weren’t white. They also come in several versions or variations for lots of versatility. There are 7 individual necklaces, a short combo, and a long combo.  Pru is wearing the “long combo” version. Each necklace can be resized via touch menu.  To get your copy make your way to the Maxi Gossamer/Gossamer Jewelry store and join the FREE-to-join Gossamer Jewelry group. The group gift vendor is on the wall near the entrance.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.  Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!  There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.  Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.  You deserve it! 🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fries With That Shake

LuckyAMD
Hey there Fabulous Readers!

Have you seen the new group lucky board prizes at Apple May Designs?

The Apple May Designs inworld group is 25L and once you activate your tag you can participate in the two lucky boards just inside the doors at AMD.  Recently, the Ribbon & Kalani Outfits were loaded into the boards in a black pinstripe version and a pink pinstripe version.  This set includes the tiny ribbon top and belted pants as well as a texture change HUD that allows you to change the belt colour!

Dat Azz

I love the way the pants are designed, cinching at the waist and not only looking so cute from the front with the bow belt, but offering the most amazing from behind view that draws plenty of attention.  Disclaimer:  If you are one that wants your partner to look longingly into your eyes, you might want to re-think your pants choice, because they will just be wanting fries with that shake the whole time you are in them.

(AMD) Group Gift

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

If you just can’t wait for your lucky letter to come up, you can purchase both of these colour sets for 49L each above the boards :).
