monaLISA Smiles For Lucky Boards

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulous Readers! I came across a “new to me” shop this past weekend where I  picked up a fantastic lucky board prize, as I was updating The FabFree Advent Listing.    monaLISA is hosting an instore advent calendar which you will need to join their group to take advantage of (100L to join), but when you do join their group, you will also gain access to their massive selection of group gifts and group lucky boards too.

I got lucky…

I got lucky, because as I was peeking around the monaLISA shop, a letter “L” popped up in the lucky chair with the Anjali Outfit you see me wearing today.  The patchwork textured Anjali Outfit includes the top and matching skirt, alpha layer, as well as a texture change HUD for a handful of different colours to change both at the same time.

Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Venus
  • Slink Physique

I will definitely be back with more news about this shop, but  make sure you go check it out for yourself!

A Snowy White Sweater and a Black Friday Sale

Fantasy Deer

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have a quick, time-sensitive post for you today.  On a tip from reader Starr Devereaux (thank you so much, Starr!), Ripley and I journeyed over to Wasabi Pills to check out their Black Friday Sale.  When we arrived yesterday, I was overjoyed to notice that this Fifty Linden Fridays Belle mesh hair was still set out in front of the store for only 50L.  I scooped it up, did a little happy dance, then headed inside to purchase a few (OK, OK, more than a few) Basics Packs of hair, which are on sale for 70% off.  I had to reassure Ripley that I still have enough Linden dollars left over to keep him well supplied with Ripley Snacks, and then his tail set to wagging once more.  Unfortunately, the Fifty Linden Friday Hair is no longer available, but you can scoop up the basics pack for Belle, and have more shades than I do, for 70% off.  Wasabi Pill’s Black Friday Sale runs through November 28th.

Snowy Sweater

In my post [HERE], I shared that Mie Beck strives to offer quality mesh items for 50L in her Marketplace shop.  I went back to poke around for more bargains, and I discovered this lovely white knitted sweater dress, just perfect for the season.  With a wide, ribbed, folded-down neck, and decorative cable stitching, this dress is packed with textural detail.  It reminds me of the sweaters that my grandmother used to knit for me when I was a little girl.  In addition, it features long sleeves, and falls to about mid-thigh.  You could definitely wear leggings underneath to keep your legs toasty if you are going to be out on a cold winter’s day.   The sweater is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and is available in other colors in the Beck Marketplace store.

Happiness is Shopping for a Scarf

Siss Boom participates in Sixty Linden Weekend Sales Event, and when Rip and I traveled there to check out this week’s offerings, I noticed the wall filled with 24 group gifts.  I decided to pick up a few.  I had joined Siss Boom’s group quite some time ago, and although it costs 500L to join, the *24* generous group gifts such as this free Ragland scarf in PAISLEY (woot! woot!) really make the fee a worthwhile investment.  Love previously featured this scarf in her post [HERE].  I adored it then, and am still enthralled with its delicate silk texture.  The soft, muted tones of the shawl really complemented my dress.  I draped it around my neck, and was quite pleased with the effect.

After popping home to grab a few of those Ripley Snacks for the road, the pupster and I dashed through the snow over to Snuggles Forest and met Jinx, a friendly deer.  I have to admit, though, Ripley kept a careful eye on those antlers while I gave Jinx a pat.  It’s so good to have a protective pal to keep me safe!  Until next time, wonderful readers…. happy shopping!

You know… I may rez in to the grid with my mesh brain in my mouth (ever seen that?  It’s disturbing lol  Very Walking Dead), my shoes in my hand and be completely naked until everything else has rezzed around me, but Second Life does hold it’s advantages over that thing called Real Life too.  For example… NO ALLERGIES!  This is a bonus that I can really appreciate this time of year🙂.

Buckled, Belted & Sling Backed

Snapshot_002Hello Fabulouses! Today I bring you news of a couple 70L EVANI finds at The Dressing Room and a FREE group gift pair of shoes by N-Core that you won’t want to miss out on.

The dress I am wearing today is EVANI’s Nikki and is available in three colours priced at 70L each at The Dressing Room.  EVANI is also offering the very cool belted halter at 70L as well that adds just a little bit of pizazz to the simple style of the dress.  You have a week left in this round of The Dressing Room before the items get switched out at the end of the month.

Ok, onto FREE SHOES news!  I know you were waiting for it :)  N-Core has a new group gift called Karen that is compatible with N-Core Xtreme Feet, Slink, Maitreya, TMP and Belleza.    Being that these beauties are black, I know these will be worn and worn again because it will go with so many of my outfits!  The group is 50L to join – WORTH IT!

Casual Friday on Monday

Snapshot_001Good evening Fabulouses! Before I head offline for the night, I have a couple of group offers to share with you, and a sweet deal too.

My Teya Jeans and Sweater which are made by Evani, can be found at this round of The Dressing Room for 70L each in a variety of colours.  The knit texturing on the sweater is fantastic and the ripped knees in the jeans are super cool because they come with a texture change hud that allows you to match up your knees with the rest of your body.

N-Core put out these sexy little ankle boots today as a free group gift for their inworld VIPs (50L to join)!  These boots are compatible with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and N-Core feet.
Snapshot_002Make sure to swing by Besom and join their free inworld group so that you can give their group midnight mania board a slap.  This Hannu hairstyle is available as a free MM Board prize for group members only in a whole fatpack of colours.  The goal is 360 slaps, which is pretty high – but if we allllll  slap that darn board we’ll lock it down!

We’ve Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!)

There’s nothing quite like working together to get a job done! And I had a picture frame to hang so… I called Glimmer over to see if she’d help me — plus I wanted to show her my new Christmas tree! I’m not really sure this was the kind of framing I had in mind… but we had fun anyway!😀

By the way! That gorgeous 3-D mesh Christmas tree you see behind us? Is a totally FREE gift you can pick up if you hurry over to LeLutka right now. It’s their advent tree! Not only is LeLutka giving away gorgeous advent gifts each day, but they are giving away the tree too! Just join the LeLutka group FREE and click the tree itself for your FREE copy!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 1

So we didn’t quite get the picture hung on the wall, but Glimmer and I looked great anyway! I had found this amazing applier top (don’t worry it has system layers too) called the April Blouse (with lovely flexi sleeves and prim bottom) at the advent calendar at PurpleMoon Creations (Day 15). It is yours FREE with your 50L group join — plus all the other advent goodies at PurpleMoon as well!

Glimmer outdid me though, I think! Can you believe how that gold dress just shimmers! She found a real sweet deal at Sweet Temptations for you! Her Golden Nights cocktail dress is the current FREE gift at Sweet Temptations and the group is FREE to join as well, making it a completely FREE gift! Yay! She is also wearing a free holiday hat she found at SnowPaws that are FREE for everyone — no group required! How cool is that!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 2

I wanted to show you a couple more great offers before I went back to finish hanging that frame that never got hung! The hair you see me sporting in these pictures is from MINA and is currently one of two VIP gifts available to group members. This one is called Waylon and is actually the men’s gift, but it had such a cute little ‘flip’ to the edges that it took on a feminine feel when I put it on (sorry guys out there!). The female gift is equally pretty. Both gifts are yours FREE with you group tag. The group is 200L to join but you get 2 gifts per month, full fatpacks, so the fee is well worth your time.

My necklace is currently a FREE advent gift at Chop Zuey (day 3) from the FREE side (no group required). This particular necklace called Snow Dance also came with earrings which I’m not wearing, and just has gorgeous details. The advent calendar at Chop Zuey is filling up with beautiful items… be sure to check it out!

I’ll Facepalm you for White Hot Chocolate!

So, there I was, wandering around the house, wishing I had some hot chocolate. Specifically white hot chocolate. Do you think I actually had some? No, of course not! So that meant I had to bundle up, and head out for some, that’s how badly I wanted it.

hotchocolate1

Lucky for me, I had just picked up a brand new coat from Facepalm, and this was the perfect opportunity to show it off. LOL. The Seasonal Coat, with texture change hud, is Facepalm’s hunt item for the Let It Snow hunt. This warm and cozy, yet truly stylish mesh coat comes in the standard sizes, and as I mentioned, is texture change through a hud. You get to choose from 3 leopard prints, and 4 plaids. I’ve included a shot of a few of the choices below. As with all hunt items in the Let it Snow hunt, you can choose how to get their prizes. Find the sign in the store, and you can buy this lovely jacket for L$25, or, follow the hint, and only spend L$1. I guess it all depends on how savvy a hunter you are😛 Facepalm‘s hint : Midnight is a magical time. You have until Dec 31 to get hunting!

hotchocolate2

I swear, hot chocolate tastes even better when you are outside, with a slight chill to the air and some snow on the ground. As long as you are bundled up properly of course🙂

Alright lovelies, I must be off, but you know I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!
