Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!

Heyyyy guyyyyys….

I’m up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness!  I dunno about you, but in RL I don’t look quite as poised when it’s time to have a little sweat sesh (ew why did I just say sweat sesh?), but I figure in SL you can always look effortlessly adorable and working out in a little skirt would totally work!  Wanna know how I put this look together?  Read on!

Sn@tching it Up

If you haven’t been to Sn@tch recently, you may not know that there are a bunch of new lucky boards just waiting for you to claim some prizes!  It’s completely free, no group join required.  You can grab all sorts of goodies.  I picked up the Connie Sport Skirt (comes in a miriad of colours, of course) as well as The Weekender top.  That’s one of my fave finds, because the texture change HUD has loads of options for this cute little crop top. There’s also a pair of jeans tossed in with the top, which come with system layers and an Omega applier.   I love it!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Bunny Shoes!

The good people at Reign put out a little Easter gift last week, and I’m sure you’ll agree that these shoes are insanely adorable.  From the little ears all the way to the cute little cotton tail, they’re just pure perfection.  You can change the accent colours on these cute sneaks, as well as whether you’d like the tip-toe version or a flat look – they come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.  To pick up your pair,  join the Reign group for 250L, and then take a peek in group notices to grab the sneakers to add to your collection.

Now go out there and feel the burn!

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena

Morning Ride

Happy Friday, fabulous readers!

After spending the last week or so in bed with the flu, I thought it would be nice to take Fergus out for a refreshing ride. After all, he was literally chomping at the bit, so I took that as a not-so-subtle hint on his part. 🙂

Riding Casual

Anyway, today I’m sharing a casual gift from Anny’s Fashion for members of the TeleportHub group. For just 10L, you can join the TeleportHub in-world group and pick up Beatrice Jeans & Tank Top. Sizes include the following…

Beatrice Jeans in Emerald

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Tank Top in Gold & White

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Fitmesh XS-L

Both the jeans and tank top come with an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Quiet Moments Lost in Thought

Lost in Thought

Well, hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy Saturday!  After a very late night (or early morning, I guess) in RL, I’m feeling a bit off track today.  I had to pick up a family member at the airport for a supposed midnight arrival, that turned out to be about an hour delayed.  The pupster and I didn’t get to sleep until about 2 am… eep!  Back in my wild and crazy  younger days, I could easily bounce back from a late evening, but now I find myself needing to sit and catch up.  I think Rip’s feeling the same way, because we both just plunked ourselves down near a fence line on the Whimberly sim this morning, and vegged.

Off the Shoulder

Luckily, it was a warm dawn in SL, so I was quite comfortable in my new “K2” shirt from the Petry Model Store.  This cropped top features a ruffled neckline, a one shoulder style, and a HUD that allows you to select from a variety of solid and print textures.  This floral pattern seemed just right for an early spring day, but if that’s not your style, you have 19 other options to choose from.  You can even opt to texturize the ruffle separately from the rest of the blouse.  Best of all, this little gem of a top is a free gift for members of the DM group, which is completely free to join!  In addition to this adorable shirt, there are a number of other free gifties set out; you’ll find them clustered on the wall nearby.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

I can see Ripley’s eyes drifting closed, and I’m feeling a bit sleepy myself.  We’re off to try to catch up on some Z’s.  Thankfully, we don’t have to deal with the time-change in our part of the world.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I’ll Spread My Wings and Fly

I'll Spread My Wings and Learn How to Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a super quick post tonight to share with you another of the Fabulous Finds that Ripley and I discovered on the trail of the Dress Her Up Hunt.  In my post {HERE}, I shared the first hunt item we discovered.  This next one from <Trashed> is just as fantastic!  For only 2 Linden dollars, I was able to scoop up the adorable Birdie Skirt, which features a fun avian print, soft pleats and a narrow waistband that sits just below my belly button.   I chose to pair it with a white cropped top, but I think black would also coordinate nicely.  One thing I really appreciated about this hunt prize is it includes classic sizes as well as mesh body versions.  The hunt runs through March 31st, so there is still plenty of time left to pick up some budget-friendly additions to your inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Fine
  • Isis
  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

I’m Sporting a Neon Rainbow

Spring is on the Way

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  Since March came in like a lion in my neck of the woods, I’m sure err – I mean – hoping it will go out like a lamb with plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  Well, even if it’s only “springish” in SL, I’m ready with a couple of budget-friendly fashion finds.  It must be a rainbow kinda day, because just like in Aline’s post {HERE}, I donned a rainbow of my own, but more about that later.

Start At the Top

My ruffled, multi-layer Calinda top features pale, vertical stripes near the neckline, and an organic, almost floral motif on the lower hems.  Made exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, this cropped shirt will help me celebrate the arrival of warm days, and will be a fashion staple throughout the entire summer.  Tucked inside the package, you’ll find white and teal strapless versions, as well as the same shades sporting spaghetti straps for that extra assurance your shirt will stay in place.  I chose to pair mine with jeans, but in the dog days of summer, I’m sure it will look just as adorable with shorts.   It might be simply due to the shape of my avatar, but from a side angle, a bit more of my cleavage showed than I was comfortable with.  I solved that problem by wearing a long style of hair that covered that part of the girls up.  This little number is specially priced at just one linden dollar at LS Diamond’s marketplace shop.  I’m not sure how long this will last, so if you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, I’d recommend visiting the store soon.

Then Add Some Brilliant Pops of Color

For a jaunty finishing touch, I slipped on the Neon bracelets that I picked up at Zendra for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This set is so whimsical and cheerful!  A resize script is included so you can adjust the jewelry to fit your avatar.  I had to do that for myself, and it was easy-peasy!  No editing skills required at all.  You can wear the bracelets on both arms as I chose to do, or just one.  I’m including a close up shot below so you can get a better look of this free gift.  It’s a fun throwback to my younger days when I would wear layer upon layer of jelly bangles.

Neon Rainbow

And You are All Set for Spring!

Ok, I am ready (well, more than ready) for spring to arrive.  I’m sure looking forward to shedding my jacket and taking walks in the balmy sunshine.  How about you all?  Until my next post, happy shopping!
