Hello, I’ve Just Got To Let You Know

Hello, I've Just Got To Let You KnowYou may recall from my recent ramblings, that I’ve spent a bit of time at Candy Kitten doing some serious lucky board stalking. You might also be interested to know that there is a group gift available right next to the lucky boards. When I first went it was a free 300L store credit and at some point I noticed that it had become this fantastic outfit that I’m wearing in front of these oddly placed blocks. Yeah, Candy Kitten is definitely a group to get in and stay in, for so many reasons.

Passionate

I keep finding things that I love about this outfit. It is seriously so well made and detailed. From the shading and texturing on the vest to the amazing cut outs on either side of the skirt right back to the extensive HUD, this outfit is a keeper. Don’t even get my started on the thumb hole on the sleeve. As I mentioned, the Passion set is a free group gift at Candy Kitten. You’ll find it near the middle of the store next to the lucky boards. The Candy Kitten group is 400L to join. The gift includes the top and skirt as separate pieces, each complete with a HUD full of options. It’s so generous when designers give us gifts that are also fatpacks. Upon writing this I’ve also noticed that there is a really nice pair of customizable stockings included too that I had completely missed earlier. The gifts just keep on coming.

Each Item Comes in Sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky and Petite (just for the top)

Right Here Waiting

Right Here WaitingThe lucky boards over at Candy Kitten have been updated! Well, actually they were like a week and a half ago but it took me foreeeever to get my hands on the prizes, those pesky boards were very stingy with the As. When my letter finally appeared though, I was rewarded with this pretty purple dress. Totally worth all of that board stalking! You need to be in the Candy Kitten group (which costs 400L) and then the lucky board prizes are free with a little waiting. Included with the dress was the stockings that I’m wearing, along with a HUD for the stocking and bow colors.

Sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Hopefully you have better luck than me, may the odds be ever in your favor!

Look Into My Eyes

Look Into My EyesHey FabFree. Don’t be fooled, I’m not showing a very wide scene tonight, but I still have fabulous things to show you! I’m beat so let’s get right to it, shall we?

Shiny Lips

I’m really a fan of very subtle makeup. There’s a place for bold too of course, but most of the time I want it to enhance my look not take it over. Take this lip gloss as an example. It’s just the nicest little shine that’s so sweet and natural. I got it at Vortex. The group is free to join and these lips are a free group gift (in three subtle and perfect variations) as well as a couple of other free group gifts that are also really great and a bit more dramatic.

Stunning Eyes

Eyes are so important in making a quality avatar. It’s not as big of an issue as it was when I first started in SL (ahem whenever that was) because there are so many really amazing eye creators now. But ladies and gents this is a PSA, don’t neglect your eyes! Your avatar is not complete without quality eyes. /me steps off her soapbox. I’ve been wearing Sequoia most of the time for a while now and if you haven’t checked them out, you need to. And hey, there’s a new group gift out while you’re at it! The Sequoia group is 10L to join, and it will be the best 10L that you ever spent. The eyes I’m wearing here are part of the August group gift and there are a bunch of other group gifts on the wall as well, all free once you’ve join the group. They’re really beautiful eyes, trust the eye snob.

Aline already visited here a couple of weeks ago, and here are the things I picked up on my visit that I’m showing today:

  • Free tears by tres beau that went on to inspire this whole mood that I’ve got going on here – a BOM layer for your right eye, left eye, or both

  • Free top by Palette, with an almost fuzzy looking texture in this peach color and sizes for: Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy, and Perky
  • And last but not least, free applier lipstick by amara beauty in SO many great shades that it’s sure to become an instant staple in your inventory

There’s still plenty of time but don’t delay too long, this round of Access lasts till July 8th. When you get there, you’ll need to join the free group and then there are free gifts at just about every booth. ❤

Turn Off The Lights, And I’ll Glow

Turn off the lights, and I'll glow
My looks have been all over the place lately. It’s just so fun to play dress up and there are creators making gorgeous things in all different styles, what’s a girl to do? Especially when there’s so much prettiness about for free!

Fashion MOGUL

My first stop was MOGUL. All I had to do was join the free update group and then claim the three free group gifts on the wall by the entrance! I just love these jeans, so sexy and fun. The gift is this “rose” color and includes sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass

I think that they look great with a simple cropped tank top, but I bet you can style them much better than I did.

Poser

What a fantastic name for a store – Unholy Duality. If you’re a poser like me then you’re going to love this one. Once your find yourself at Unholy Duality you’ll just need to join the free group and take your pick from the free group gifts on the wall. In this case you’ll be getting poses. Do I show poses too much? I realize that people who don’t photograph and/or blog won’t be into them really, but I just can’t get enough poses. Hopefully you feel the same way!

I guess that’s it for now. ‘Till next time. ❤

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Basking in the Desert Sun

Desert Sunlight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are still wandering around the grid doing our best to avoid winter.  Today, we traveled to the beautiful southwestern landscape over at Villa Baldeney.  One of my favorite aspects of the desert is the brilliance of the sunshine and the warmth in the air… (although I will probably deny this in the summertime!).  The adorable cropped top that I am wearing in my photo does a fantastic job of reflecting the light, AND it’s a free gift as well!

All Wrapped Up

I think you probably have already figured out how much I like the Kali Top from American Bazaar.  With its open back and sexy wrapped style, this little number is just right for catching some rays.  The shimmering texture and curve-hugging design of this free group gift flatter your figure, and the dark shade will coordinate with a variety of bottoms.  I chose long jeans, but could also see pairing the top with shorts, capris or even a skirt.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the American Bazaar Fashion Group, but with a join fee of zero Linden dollars, it’s completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Hmmm, I see a vulture circling overhead.  Perhaps it’s time for Ripley and I to resume our rambling journey across the warmer weather sims in SL before that bird gets any ideas.  Until next time, happy shopping!
