Taking Time Out for Some Leaf Peepin’

Time Out for Leaf Peeping

Hello Fabulouses!  One of my favorite parts of autumn (when I lived in a place that actually had four seasons) was going for a stroll in the woods with my pup by my side.  Although I still have a beloved canine, I have to get my leaf peeping fix on Second Life.  After seeing Aline’s posts here and here, Ripley and I decided to check out the Boo Bunny Hunt for ourselves, and came across this gorgeous cropped cowl neck top for just 1 Linden dollar.  

Time to Break Out the Sweaters

When I checked out the prize preview page, I really liked the picture of OMG Inc.’s Ladies Hooded Swarl, so I dusted off Rip’s tracking harness and we headed over to the shop to try our luck.  With the pupster’s talented nose (and the helpful hints page), we quickly discovered the hunt object, a piece of fall candy.  I was thrilled to notice when I opened the prize package that the designer had tucked a texture change HUD with 5 options for colors/patterns inside.  So, for just 1 tiny Linden dollar, it was like I got five different tops in one!  Although it’s not specifically designed for mesh avatars, I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  This poncho type sweater features a generous folded down cowl neck secured with two chunky buttons, a knitted ribbed texture, and an asymmetrical length which keeps your back toasty warm and allows a sexy glimpse of skin in the front.  I think you could also wear a tank underneath on really chilly days if you’d prefer.  Although I chose to pair the top with a rugged pair of leather pants for a casual look, I think it would also look fab when combined with a skirt.  The sky’s the limit!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Ripley and I are gonna head back down the hunt path and see what else we can discover.  Yes, Pal, there will be some Ripley Snacks at the end of our journey!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

In the Pink

Hello Fabulouses!  It must be those blush colored tulips from my post {here} left me with pink on my mind, because today’s outfit continues that theme.  Like Loki, the pupster and I are working our way through the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and finding some wonderful goodies along the way.

In the Pink

We discovered my one shouldered Simple Chicness Gown at OMG! Inc.  For just one Linden dollar, I came away with a lovely formal frock complete with a HUD packed with ten options for colors.  I selected this pretty rose hue, but if pink is not your style, OMG! Inc. has you covered.  Featuring a long skirt, low waistline, and realistic wrinkles in the texture, this elegant dress is perfect for a date night or a casual stroll with your bff.  Although there were no mesh body versions in the gift box, I was able to adjust the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body to get a perfect fit.

Sizes Included:

  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L

Feeling Just Like a Princess

In addition to my new gown, I also picked up a gorgeous hairstyle as a free group gift over at Clawtooth.  This new ‘do features the Essentials HUD with 16 texture choices.  I love the simple floral headband which is included as well.  I opted for pink blossoms, but could have easily gone with one of five other selections.  You can even change the texture of the band itself to either yellow, white, in addition to the green I am wearing.  In order to pick up this hairstyle for yourself, you need to be a member of the Clawtooth by Clawtooth Update Group, however, there is no join fee, so your new tresses will be completely free.  I’m not sure how much longer the Princess Bride Group Gift will be available, so if you want to scoop up a copy for yourself, don’t delay.

Well, that wraps up my Fabulous Finds for today.  Ripley and I will be out and about searching for more budget friendly items to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Skate Like Nobody’s Watching

Poised

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  After Ripley and I left the La Vie sim yesterday, we decided to try our luck on the Peace On Earth Hunt, and made our way over to the OMG! Inc. store.  There, the pupster’s talented nose discovered the hidden snowflake which contained the free Skater Dress I’m wearing in my picture.  This fun and flirty outfit inspired a trip to an ice covered pond at Moonchuck Winter Wonderland for a late afternoon glide across the frozen water.  With sizes for classic as well as popular mesh avatars, you’re sure to find a fit for you!  The prize package includes a texture change HUD with 5 options to choose from.  I love the way the knotted top offers a sexy peek at my mid section.  With the generously flared skirt, your avatar will have plenty of freedom for your finest figure skating moves!  Best of all, you can pick up a copy for yourself for just a small investment of time.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Super Nova

Solar_001

I love checking out the view at Inspire Space Park. And I found the perfect outfit for visiting. I picked it up free as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt by stopping by OMG! Inc. and hunting down that iconic … ahem… symbol. (Let’s keep things PG 13, why don’t we?) My Supernova outfit includes the shiny black leather pants and the purple top (the pieces are separate so you can mix and match if you want) with the plunging neckline and the splash of stars that sheen over the material. It comes in all your favorite sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Raise a brow

I like little details and since I was feeling out of this world, I decided to add some glittery eyebrows to my features. I found these purple ones by alaskametro on the Marketplace for just 75L. These are Catwa head appliers and you’ll get 6 colors.

Glitter Eyebrow Colors Included:

  • Silver
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Pink

Something Solar

I also stopped by The Forge, because I like their in-store gachas, and gave the Aura necklace gacha a spin. I got lucky and landed the Ultra Rare on the first spin! I was super happy to show off the gold and and white necklace with my outfit. For just 50L a spin though, all the necklaces are beautiful! And they are modifiable to fit any neck size 🙂

Cupid is Here!

The weekend is almost here, and everyone will be celebrating! You only have a few days left to set up your space and get your outfit ready. But never fear… cupid is here to help… with the Stupid Cupid Hunt! As well as a few other goodies here and there!

Every Love Story is Beautiful 2

If you are not a subscriber at Sway’s, now is the time! Currently, new (or current) subscribers can get these fabulous wooden art boards (modifiable) as FREE Valentine’s gifts. I think they are good year round for any decor!

I stopped by OMG! Inc. and picked up this color change corset in all the standard mesh sizes with 8 color choices for just 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. You are looking for a little arrow.

Every Love Story is Beautiful

I also found this sweet unisex ILY necklace by Mesh Glam Jewelry for 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. Stop by the main-store and look for the arrow again, and it’s yours to take home. It’s resizable for male or female avatars.

Since I had some great jewelry, I wanted to add a bit of flair to my make up. I usually go with neutral make up, but decided to go a bit more wild for the upcoming holiday and alaskametro is offering this great little tester of their Extreme Wing in Flame for FREE on the Marketplace. If you want the full pack you can get that for only 75L. So either way it’s a great deal on some fantastic eye-shadow! The make up comes in standard system layers as well as appliers for TMP, EVEolution, Lelutka, Omega, and Slink.

Snakes and Dragons

Dragons and Snakes 1

There are some great hunts going on at the moment and I had to satisfy my inner hunter again… once more at OMG! Inc. This time, I snatched up the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt gift… which is this totally FREE sexy dress called Slither Snakeskin. I’m wearing it in red in the picture above, but what I really love is that the dress comes with a color change hud with 8 color choices! It’s mesh in all the standard sizes, so you are sure to find your fit, as well.

You have until February 15th to grab up this sensual number, so don’t stress if you want to finish out a few of the ending January hunts first 🙂

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

I wanted a great set of heels to go with my new dress, and the Black and White Hunt did not disappoint! However it IS one of those hunts that is coming to a rapid close… and ends on January 31. You’ll need to hurry if you want to snag a set of my heels by Lindy’s Designs in the pictures above. These are FREE for the Black and White Hunt and are on the Black Path and are made for slink high feet.

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

I rounded out my look with a necklace from Chop Zuey. One of the latest group gifts is this fantastic Dragon Flight necklace, which you can get FREE by wearing your group tag. The group is 350 to join, but the gifts are always plentiful! So you’ll have your money’s worth in no time! To note: this necklace is a men’s piece, however I was easily able to resize it to fit my female shape… and I think it works great as unisex jewelry!

Resting With My Reindeer

Resting With The Reindeer

Winter is not quite over yet… and I found a great accessory to prove it! Right now, if you go to the Jinx Fantasy Store location, you can join the group FREE and get this amazing wearable AFK reindeer (with pose) group gift for FREE. It’s modifiable, so if you have a little bit of editing skills, you can make the ‘afk’ sign part invisible (like I did) and just lay down with your new reindeer in the snow for a very nice fantasy feel! I included a picture of the gift advertisement below, so you could see what the item looks like with the ‘afk’ tag on it too. It is a really terrific prop all the way around!

I also did a bit of hunting, and for just 1L picked up this Pearl Lingerie bodysuit by OMG! Inc. as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt. The details on it are amazing, and even though it only comes in system layers, I just fell in love!

Snow in August never looked so good!

Before you yell at me, yes…that is snow in my pictures! I know, in most of our parts of the world, Summer isn’t even over yet, let alone any thoughts of snow. I’m sorry, I can’t help where my outfits inspire me to go for pictures, and you have to admit, my look in this post goes quite well with the white of the snow 😛

snowblue1

So, I won’t go into much with my items on this post, as there is a deadline..the hunt for these gifts ends tonight!! Both the dress and skin are from the Fairy Tale Hunt, and you better move fast if you want them. I’ll remind you, the gifts are L$1 each, and for the hints and previews of other gifts, go HERE.

This gorgeous turquoise gown is the huint gift from OMG! Inc. The Grace Me Midnight Gown (love the name!!!) comes in 2 lengths. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is a system layer and rpim skirt gown..yayy! IDK if I like it better long or short, I’ll let you all decide, both looks are beutiful. I may be biased though, as this is one of my favourite colours.

snowblue2

The lovely pale skin I am wearing is the Thindwen skin from Deluxe Body Factory. I love the pale blue brows ❤ In the gift, you get the skin, a brow shaper and an eyelash hider alpha (I did not use either of those). I did have to whip out the alternative skin hud for my SLink hands, feel free to IM me in world if you would like the numbers I decided on.

OK lovelies, I hope you have enough time to run and get these gifts. Along with many others on the hunt, sorry I don’t have enough time to show anymore prizes. I will be back with something else that is just as wonderful, so until next time, TTFN!
