Spreading News of Joy

Snapshot_006
Hello Fabulous Readers! Today I am bringing you news of a couple group gifts you just might be interested in learning about.  In just a couple stops and group joins, you’ll have the full outfit I am wearing too.

Your First Stop

The first one is at NyDesign.  When you join their free inworld group there are a few group gifts that you can obtain with your tag activated on the back wall in the VIP area, however the latest free gift is the Joy Skirt & Blouse Combi that I am wearing today. It goes on in one piece with the blouse and skirt attached, however it includes a texture change HUD that allows you to  make a handful of texture changes to both the top and the bottom.  The cut out floral blouse is not for the shy.  You may wish to wear a bra or some pasties to conceal your lady bits, but I didn’t find it was too risqué.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya
  • Ebody

Your Second Stop

The second place you need to head to is none other than N-Core!  Now…  this group will set you back 199L but after you join, you can pick up the fatpack of Mambo shoes as you as me wearing today!  The Calyssa Boots that have previously been shown on FabFree as an N-Core group gift are still available as well, so you can pick up both packs for one join fee!

Mambo Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • N-Core
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

Be My Valentine

Snapshot_002Happy Valentine’s Day to all you SLovers out there!  Whether you are spending it romancing the night away with a sloved one or curling up on the sofa with your favourite furrball, I hope it’s a great day for you.

Tonight’s The Night

If you can convince your honey to dress up all “matchy matchy” with you for the big date night tonight, make sure you check out the past notices of the Loca Como tu Madre group for a very generous free group gift for both men and ladies!  It may take a little convincing, some dragon eyes…  and possibly negotiations, but when a woman puts her mind to something, we all know there is no stopping her!

The Loca Como tu Madre shop is marketplace based, so I can’t teleport you to a store, but you can join the group by copy and pasting the following link into local chat to join and then review the past notices of the group for the gift.  secondlife:///app/group/9ad09367-24c5-391a-90d2-3eabc100c420/about

For Her

  • Be My Valentine Dress
  • Be My Valentine Slink Shoes (not shown as I am wearing my Maitreya feet)

For Him

  • Be My Valentine Suit
  • Be My Valentine Shoes

Be My Valentine

Question Of The Day

The adorable pose that I have pretty much forced upon poor Carson is called Be My Valentine and is available for just 1L in the GlamRUs Marketplace store.  It was a real steal and I think would be great for commemorating this special day with your sweetie in a snapshot or for blogging/photography purposes.

The Final Verdict

Will I be his Valentine?  How could I not after he’s jumped through all of these hoops for me?  I should be so lucky!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE ❤

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!  She …  Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting fun.  My shooting aim of course is horrible…  The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun…  If I am aiming at them, they are pretty safe.  It’s the ambulance windshield right next to him that needs to worry…  or the tree WAY over to the left.  It’s a good thing Carson just follows around behind me shooting them all dead.  Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…  but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!  The new 22 piece prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:  Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL  The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

A Day in Gray

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  If you happen to have a space 60L kicking around, I know just the place to spend it!

Don’t forget your purse…

You will need a little bit of cash for today’s find (60L to be exact), but to be fair…  Sometimes group fees cost more than this little dress does!  [Satus Inc.] has just released their new Anya Collar Mini Dress in four beautiful colours, and for a limited time, they are just 60L per colour.  I am wearing the gray today, but you will also find black, blue and pink.  I think the sheer midriff, slit skirt and studded collar add so much sexy to what would normally be a very basic design.  Another feature that I can appreciate is the realistic wrinkled texturing.

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

Festive Greens and Reds

Festive greens and reds

All of this running around.

Hey there fabulous readers, how are your advent runs coming along? I must admit that I’ve lagged behind these past couples of days thanks to all festive busyness in RL but thankfully there’s the FabFree Advent Listing to lean on and get me right back on track again. It’s also really awesome that some advents allow for past prizes to be delivered or purchased and one such store that’s doing this is Entice. I came to know about this merchant thanks to Kathryn but finally got myself around to visiting when I saw that they were doing an advent calendar. The prizes are free to group members and the Entice group is free to join but if you’re short on group slots (like me) you’ll be able to purchase the advent gifts for 25L each. Past prizes are available for 25L so drop by to the store and, er, Entice yourself so to speak by trying on the demos for the advent gifts provided so that you can pick out and purchase your favorites.

Demos lead to good things.

Trying on demos is what lead me to the stunning emerald number pictured. I’m still using a mostly ‘classic avatar’ and it can get a bit daunting when I don’t see the words ‘standard mesh sizing’ on the vendor ads but with the help of those demos under the Entice advent tree, the deal was sealed. Not only is the color for the Make Me Dress (advent gift day 6) vibrant and eye catching, its design is unique as well. The top and skirt part of the dress are linked together with circular chains, making this a fun and flirty outfit that’s perfect for all those Christmas parties. The Make Me dress comes in sizes for Slink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya and Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus.  Personally, the Venus fit was perfect so throw on a demo and an alpha layer that’s lying around in your inventory and experiment!

Scientia potentia est

Have you ever been to the Fabulously Free in SL flickr feed? It’s a great way to learn about new free gifts and that was how I caught wind that N-Core was giving out two free pairs of shoes! Pictured above are the Kate Christmas heels which are very fitting for the season with its vivid red and white color scheme. The gift folder includes sizes for N-Core High feet, Belleza High feet, Maitreya High Feet, TMP High feet and Slink High feet. N-Core is very much a new to me shoe store but I’m really loving this well-made pair of classic heels. If you have a group spot open, N-Core has also put out a gorgeous pair of boots as their group gift which you can read all about in Love’s post {HERE}. Find your gifts under the Christmas tree!

Who does your hair?

The gifts for the Truth VIP group have been very generous and the trend continues into December with not one but two gifts. Pictured is the Irena hair, a long and wavey style that is simply elegant. You can choose to make things more casual with a beanie (color hud provided) or add bangs. The Irena hair also comes with a seperate fit so that it won’t cut into your front. As always with Truth VIP group gifts, this hairstyle comes in a fatpack of colors.  The join fee for the Truth VIP group stands at 350L, a good deal since you’ll be getting two hair fatpacks.

Festive Greens and Reds

Have you joined up yet?

In this post {HERE}, I mentioned that 7 Deadly s{K}ins was going to make it’s group free to join on the 28th of November. Well, that date has come and gone so if you haven’t taken the opportunity to join up now is your chance to do so. There is an advent going on at the store for both females and males that are open to group members. You’ll need to pay the 1L for the day’s gift but it will be immediately refunded back to you so that means you’ll get a different skin a day for free this month if you join up! Pictured is the Day 6 prize Feeb’s Fabienne which ones in one tone and cleavage/no cleavage options. There are also appliers for Tango, Phatazz and Slink (full body) included in the gift package. If you’ve missed some of the advent gifts, those past prezzies are still available for 50L (pay vendor 99L and have 49L refunded immediately) 7 Deadly s{K}ins  have always been consistent with the quality of their skins and the generosity of their gifts so join up now as free group will only last till the first of January.

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!

Allergies

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!
