An Open Letter to Spring

An Open Letter to Spring

Dear Spring,

I know you’re still really far away, but I’d like you to come back to me.  I am aware that it is February and I live in the frozen North, but such petty little details shouldn’t keep us apart!  I’m sure whichever part of the world you’re in right now won’t mind if you come this way just a little sooner.  I promise.

Forever Yours,

Aline

Spring Hopes

I know.  I’m weird.  What isn’t weird, is this really gorgeous spring-inspired dress by Fashionably Dead.  They’ve put out a group gift for Valentine’s day that comes with an HUD to change to a myriad of different flowery textures.  I love it.  You can pick up this dress by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100L.  There are several other gifts out as well for your paltry fee!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

New Hair? Where!?

Sintiklia are up to their old tricks again, placing a new group gift out at their store.  You can grab this full fatpack of hair (that has several different bangs in the box, as well as a styler HUD for completely different looks), by joining the Sintiklia group for 100L.  There are plenty of gifts out there as well, making this group join super worth it.

Maybe if I dress for spring, it will come! It’s worth a try…

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Silver Lady

MissChelseaGGHiya Fab Readers!  Over the crazy busy holiday season, Miss Chelsea put out a really nice group gift for their inworld members and I hadn’t had a chance to show it with everything going on, but it is still available and could be worn anytime of the year –  so it is sure worth a mention, even now!

Go Grab Abby

With a 100L join fee, you gain access to the several group gifts sitting at the reception desk at Miss Chelsea including the newly released Abby Dress in the four colours as shown below in their vendor ad.  The shimmery texture is lovely as is the fit, and can be worn with or without the sleeves.

Sizes Included:

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

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Soap Is Slippery Business, That Ain’t No Lye!

Snapshot_003
Good afternoon Fabulous Readers! Today I am stopping in to share news about a new group gift with a fatpack of dresses and tell you a little real life secret of mine.

Fatpacking Hali

Serena recently blogged about a gorgeous group gift at Miss Chelsea [HERE], and they have released an awesome fatpack of the jersey dresses called Hali as shown below.  This group is 100L to join, but between the gown that Serena previously showed that is still available and this fun fatpack, it’s worth every little linden you’ll have to part with to join.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Isis & Freya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara

My Undirty Little Secret

I am sure you all know that my biggest shopping crutch in Second Life is probably… hair, and that is a sweet spot for many of us girls here on the grid, but we all have real life shopping crutches too, and one of mine…  is handmade soap!

I can’t get enough of the bubbly stuff.  I have stacks and baskets, and bags full and still buy more.  On occasion I’ll even make some myself!  Anyways, I pretty much “SQUEEEE-ed” when I came across the new Soap Collection Gacha Set by Kraftworks at this round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room, I couldn’t help myself!  This machine is just 50L per play and offers 9 commons and 1 rare (the scale).

I really thought the slippery soap should have been the rare, because it’s so funny.  I did another little GIF to show you what happens when you rez the Slippery Soap and sit on it.

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown – the latest group gift from .miss chelsea. – would be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store – no group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! 🙂

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

More Miss Chelsea

Snapshot_005Hello FabFree! Yesterday I mentioned that Miss Chelsea had moved to a new location and had three new group gifts out for their inworld members. I showed you one of them [HERE], but I wanted to show off another one of them, because when I tried it on I really liked it!

The Emie dress comes with a texture change hud that allows for a handful of top colour choices to go with the red polka dotted skirt and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies.  As I mentioned yesterday, the Miss Chelsea inworld group is 100L to join.

Relocation & Giftification

Snapshot_005Hi there Fabulous Readers 🙂 Today I am showing off one of the three new group gifts that you can pick up at the shiny new Miss Chelsea location after you join their inworld group.  All three group gifts are very cute, but I usually like to dedicate one outfit per post, so I’m displaying the Leia Outfit this time…  Which is a one piece long T-shirt and denim shorts combo.  The short come with a texture change hud too, so you can switch up your colours a few different ways.  This outfit is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I should also mention the pose I used in  my photo today, because I picked it up in a set for 10L! Le Poppycock also moved to a new location (what’s up with everyone moving lately? lol), and they have a re-opening offer that is open to everyone.  The I Love Myself Selfie pose pack that comes with the cell phone and a few poses is just 10L, which is a super inexpensive price!  It is a lot of fun for profile pictures too – so pick it up!

Wow! Look at the super hot Neve Bikini in Royal Blue that you can pick up as a free group gift at the Miss Chelsea FaMESHed display for the FaMESHed 4th Anniversary Round.  This Bikini is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies.  I picked up a pair of Elegant Arm Cuffs at the Just Design display as a free group gift, and they are really cute with the bikini – so pick those up too!  The FaMESHed group is free to join 😉
