Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom

Autumn's Blooms

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share one of our discoveries as we checked out the hunt going on at the Rock Your Rack Event.  It costs only 10 little Linden dollars, and features just the cutest botanical design.

Autumn Posies

Over at the Maci booth, if you can find the coat hanger with the heart on it (it’s not that hard to locate), you can scoop up the Autumn Blooms skirt for yourself.  With a cheerful floral print across a black background, this mini can pair with a top in a variety of colors from black as I chose to wear, to red, pink or white.  I really like the decorative white stitching along the waist and hem lines; it adds a bit of visual contrast.  The waistline sits low, just below your belly button so if you wear a cropped top, you can show off some skin while the temperatures outside are still fairly mild (unless you live near Love in which case you are stuck with snow).  Since the package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh body avatars, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.  I know I’m sure looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Autumn Stroll

Walk With Me

Post Holiday Trick or Treating

Hello Fabulouses!  Even though Halloween is over, the Halloween Hunt is still going strong over at Ricielli’s.  Ripley and I moseyed on over today to check out this fabulous in-store event.  For just 15L per prize, you can scoop up 20 goodie baskets which contain footwear, tops, dresses and even some lacey undergarments.  My sexy mini is just one of the hunt gifts up for grabs.  The Bobbi Dress is hunt item #3, and she’s a real beauty!  With detailed extras such as the ruffled trim on the bodice and the neatly tied bow at the waistline, this frock will not disappoint!  The rich burgandy texture has a subtle sheen which highlights the realistic folds in the fabric.  All you have to do is search through the store, locate the basket containing item #3, and pay 15L.  The baskets are scattered throughout the shop, but they are quite easy to find, so in no time at all, you can collect all 20 gifts.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

I Found the “Escape Winter” Button

Coming Home

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! After all that winter weather, and the tiff between Ripley and Baloo, I decided a vacation to a tropical climate was in order.  Rip and I packed our bags, and jetted off to this Italian villa.  No polar bears, no rain, no snow, just warm sunshine and gentle breezes.

She’s Got a Brand New Dress And She’s Ready to Shine

Of course, a balmy location called for a new outfit to celebrate, and lucky for me, Carrie Snowpaw has generously set out this gorgeous, halter-style frock as an exclusive free gift for Fab Free Group members. The Segalle Halter dress features a soft blue, floral pattern and hugs all your curves.  I love the detailing of the delicate ring and neck ribbon (for a better view, check out my close up picture below).  It also includes sexy side slits, which offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh.  You can’t see them due to the angle of my photo, but they are a really sweet touch. To add Segalle to your inventory, simply teleport over to Snowpaws, activate your Fab Free Group tag (as always, the Fab Free Group is completely free to join), and tap the gift board.  Then, you too, will be ready for a mid-winter get away to someplace warm and sunny.

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my outfit, I scoured the Marketplace, and came upon these silver Triple Loop earrings from Vextra Co.  I wanted baubles that would provide a welcome touch of glimmer, yet still be simple enough to let the beauty of my dress take center stage.  These hoops fit the bill perfectly. Since their price tag was only 9L, I still have plenty of jingle in my purse to bring home a collection of souvenirs from our journey, and keep a certain someone well-supplied with Ripley snacks.

I Hear the Beach Calling My Name

Floating on the summery breeze, I can just barely make out the lapping waves of the ocean, inviting Ripley and I to wander along the shore, collect sea shells, and play fetch-the-stick.  Until my next post, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!

Springtime Casual, and Free!!

Have you made it out to the 5th Anniversary of Designer Circle yet? Well why not? It ends on the 19th, and there are gifts to be had! Need more incentive? Well, as promised in a previous post, here are a few more gifts that you will find here.

Springtime Casual, and Free!!

I wanted to go for a little more casual look that would tie in nicely with the beautiful Spring weather I’ve been enjoying in my neck of the woods, and The Loordes of London Designer Circle gift was perfect for that. My cute sweater/long-shirt, dress like combo, called The SL Retro Look #19, is their offering, and I really love the versatility of it. This one-piece mesh outfit is long enough that you could get away with wearing it on its own as a dress, short enough you could throw on a pair of comfy jeans, or do like I did, and wear a pair of leggings to get the best of both worlds! It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as several mesh body sizes. Oh, and speaking of leggings, the perfect, inventory staple must-have, pair of black leggings I am wearing, are the free gift you can grab from the CNZ display, also at Designer Circle. They come in a pants system layer, and an appliers hud that will work for many of the different mesh bodies out there. Both of these cute, comfy pieces, that are perfectly suited for Spring, are free for everyone. Hooray!

Alrighty my fab freebers, I must run, so until next time, TTFN 🙂

The Skin You’re In, is perfect for dressing up.

Alright Fabbies. I have loads to show you in this post, from hunt stuff, store sale stuff, group gift stuff , to cart sale stuff, so I am not going to chat it up too much, I’m just going to get right to it!!

theskin1Lets start with my fun and flirty dress. The Fanny Sequin Dress is from CroM, a new to me store, and it is the gift for the WomenStuff hunt that is currently happening right now. This lovely dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and comes with a hud that will let you change the colour of the solid parts of the dress from the black I have on, to red. This hunt prize is free, although if you continue on in the hunt, be aware that some gifts are set to L$1. The hint for CroM is ‘I love new releases’. It’s pretty easy 🙂 You have until September 30th to go find the little red t-shirt hunt object. theskin2

Next up are my gorgeous shoes. Essenz has put out a new, free group gift, and that is my Bologna heels in Olive Gray. These are for SLink high feet, as well, there is a pair for Maitreya feet too. The group is L$350 to join, but the gifts are given quite often, and you receive a 15% store credit when you wear your tag while shopping there, so I think it is a justifiable fee for sure.

theskin3Now, I did mention more Wash Cart Sale stuff didn’t I. This time, I’m showing off the sweet Danielle skin, in Tone 4 from The Skin You’re In, Direct TP. For L$10 a tone, either the cleavage version, or the non-cleavage version, you get your skin, with a bunch of different tattoo options. My favourite, is the fact the skin is eyebrow-less, and I’m sure you all know by now, my love of a certain pair of eyebrows that I wear constantly. However, the eyebrows that come with the skin are pretty, and come in several shades to match any haircolour. The other options are freckles, dimples, and the teeth I am showing off in the close-up where I have makeup on. The lower picture without makeup, which is a nice fresh face, is what my skin looks like as is, with the freckle layer. Perfect for adding makeup layers to! I’ll add a shot of the cart at the end of this post so you can see all the tones available. You only have until the 16th to grab this deal, so do not wait! theskin5

As I said, the bare face of my skin is perfect for all these makeup layers you can buy now. So how did I decide what to wear? Well, while I was wandering around The Wash sim, looking at the carts, I wandered by the La Boheme store, and saw that they are having an end of the summer sale, 50% off everything except already discounted items. Of course, I had to partake in the deals! All lipstick and eyeshadow packs are only L$35 each, and all nail appliers are L$25 each. I picked out the Matte Plum lips, the Feline Instinct eyes, and as highlighted in the picture below, the Abalone nails.This sale runs until September 15th, so make sure you go fast, you don’t want to miss out. Oh, and as an added bonus, there is a 2 pack set of nail appliers for SLink, set out as a free gift!

theskin4theskin6

Phew! See, told you I had loads of great things to show off, and it all came together in a cute, slightly flirty-sexy, yet still classy look. Love when it all pulls together so easily! I think I took more time trying to decide how to wear my hair than anything else 😛 . OK, that’s it for me for now, so I am outta here, but you know I’ll be back. So, until then, TTFN!

The Dark Fae @ The Cart Sale; or, A Whole Lotta L$10 Love!

Hello lovelies!! I’ve missed you all. I know I have been a bit absent this week, but it has been a little hectic for me, and the one night I managed to log in and post a post, SL starting acting weirdo on me and I could not attach anything! It’s just been one of those weeks 🙂 I have survived though, and I am here to show you a bevy of L$10 goodness. Although not planned, it has turned out that everything I am showing you tonight, is L$10. How funny is that 🙂

darkfae4

So, I shall start with the one piece, mesh, Little Miss Magic legwarmers and shorts combo that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart, at the ongoing Wash Cart Sale. I am sure most have you have been already, but if not, and if you are a fan of comfy looking clothing, you really need to make a special trip just for these legwarmers with attached shorts.  I think they go with the season perfectly…the shorts are for those of us holding on to summer, and the legwarmers are for those who are embracing the shortened days and chill to the air. The best of both worlds I tell ya! There are 4 different short colours that you can choose from, each L$10 of course, and each pair comes with a texture change hud for the legwarmers. I’ve taken a few pictures of some of the textures, but there are 16 colours/textures in total to choose from. Those of you of the male persuasion, there is something on this cart for you as well, take a look at the end of my post for pictures of the cart to see everything available. You have until Oct 8th to make it to the Wash Cart Sale, so don’t wait, before you know it, it will go *poof*.

When putting my outfit together, I knew I wanted sneakers. Remembering the cute sequined sneakers I had shown you all HERE, I decided to check out CC Design’s Marketplace store again to see if a pair struck my fancy. The super cute Twirl Turquoise Sneakers jumped out immediately, and wouldn’t you know it, there is a Twirl Turquoise tank top in the same fun pattern! I know you do not have to match your shoes to anything specific in an outfit, but I couldn’t resist. Both the shoes, and top are L$10 each, and I just couldn’t say no with the great combination of colours. You know how I am 😛

darkfae3

Needing to top my look off with something fun and shiny, I found the *MM* Whale Jewelry Set, also on the Marketplace, and also only L$10!. The metal is texture change by clicking on the pieces, and everything is modifiable, so it is super easy to adjust to fit. The whale is just adorable, and I love the retro look of the earrings (I swear I had a pair that looked just like this when I was a kid, only in pink…I won’t say how long ago that was,. Suffice it to say…it would be considered retro.)

darkfae5

L$10…it is such a great price point. You get great items, and they feel like a steal, while still helping to support the creators who have brought them to you. It’s a win-win in every sense. I hope you enjoyed my L$10 post, but I must be off, there are more deals calling my name! Until next time, TTFN *waves*
