Jenny Don’t Be Hasty

JTHMooh
Hey there Fabulouses! Yesterday Kathryn showed you a super cute top that is just 1L for The Jerky Turkey Hunt [HERE], and I did a little orange feather (that’s the hunt icon… an orange feather!) hunting myself, and found that MOoH! is also participating in TJTH and has a really nice prize too.

What Will You Get For 1L?

Jenny is the prize you’ll have once you locate the orange feather at the MOoH! store.  It’s actually considered a dress, but it’s short enough that if you prefer it as a top with a cute pair of jeans like I do, you totally can!  It comes with a texture change HUD as well so you can change the blouse and frock to a few different colours to switch up your look according to your personal taste.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

Lavender Blues

Untitled

Hey, fabulouses! I’m so happy the weekend is here! It’s been a rough, busy week, and I’m looking forward to having some time to relax. I might even throw in a nap or two. Zzzzzz…

Comfy and Cozy

If you’re looking for something warm and comfortable to wear for your relaxing weekend, check out this cozy group gift from I.M. Collection. Both the jeans and sweater are included and come in the following sizes:

Sweater

  • Standard mesh S-XL (no alpha)
  • Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies

Jeans

  • Belleza Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

In addition to pink (my favorite color), I’m a sucker for anything lavender. I love the long sleeves of this sweater for keeping my hands warm. And the shoulder-baring hint of sexiness. 🙂

To Tell the Truth

Speaking of gifts… the TRUTH Hair VIP group just turned 1-year old, and to celebrate, Truth is gifting group members with 250L in store credit. That’s like getting free hair! 😀

To grab your gift, head over to the TRUTH in-world store and click on the black gift box. You only need to click the box once, but it may take a while to receive your gift because the store is so busy at the moment. Oh, and be sure to wear your group tag!

Happy Halloween, Fabulouses!

I thought I’d take a few minutes to catch my breath before the craziness starts tonight. My sweet, little friend is having such a peaceful snooze… I’m starting to feel the need for a nap myself!

But before I nod off, let me tell you about this cute Halloween gift.

Braaaaaaiiins… are sexy

At least, that’s what my shirt says! 😀

New-to-me store Quinnty’s has set out this tank top and denim jacket duo as a Halloween gift. They can be worn as separate items or as a set, as I’m doing here.

Tons of sizes are included in the folder:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with an alpha for each (so you can wear them separately)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Curvy and Fine (I don’t know which body those go to!)

The Quinnty’s in-world group is only 50L to join, and several other gifts are just waiting for you to pick them up. The store is also decked out in Halloween decor, so be sure to stop by and check it out.

Have a fun Halloween tonight, and stay safe! 🙂

Pumpkin Picking Time

Pumpkin Time

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this outfit just darling?  It was perfect for a little impromptu pumpkin picking adventure on a warm autumn day.  Ripley and I discovered it on our latest trip to The Cart Wash Sale.  I love the criss-cross lacing on the Classy Chics Designer Top and the way the Denim Mesh Shorts hug my every curve.  Both are designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body and are available at the Classy Chics display at The Cart Wash.  The overlapping semi circles on my blouse create a pleasing, sophisticated pattern, and the dangling laces add a whimsical touch.  If you’d prefer a different texture, there are nine choices available in all.  At only 10L per selection, I scooped up a variety!  My shorts came with a color change HUD which includes 9 options, so it’s like getting 9 different pairs of shorts for just 50L.  Now that’s a real deal!

On the Trail of Another Fabulous Find

Speaking of deals, the pupster just put his nose to the ground at The Cart Wash, and insistently began pulling me, making a beeline for a display across the way.  That can only mean one thing – my hound with a nose for fashion is on to another great deal for us to share with you.  We will undoubtedly be back soon with another budget-friendly Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Feels Like Monday

EnticeMMOpen

This morning started out great!

I woke up to a brand new “Let it Snow” Outfit auto sent to me for FREE as the Midnight Mania Board at Entice I slapped yesterday had locked down.  I put it on all in one click, no muss no fuss and was even able express my own personal style with the colours a little due to the texture change HUD that was included.  All I had to dig out of my pixel closet was a pair of boots, because even the jacket was part of the prize!  The mitten pockets are OH so cute!

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Fit

I was at an all time high until…

Oh crap… I forgot my library books and had to go back from them.  Now I think I missed the bus…  AND I think I have Mr. C for study hall this afternoon.  That guy never lets us get away with anything!  It feels like Monday all over again…  At least I look good 😉

Note:  There are two midnight mania boards at Entice.  This one in particular is open to all.  The other one, you’ll need to join the group for.  It’s  too – I’ll show it off soon 🙂

Dream a Little Dream

Dream a Little Dream

Hello Fabulouses… I hope you had a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I visited “The Silent Mind” on Dalaran for the first time on Sunday, and found it to be a peaceful, beautifully landscaped sim.  With soft hues, white, lacey flowers, and glowing lights in the trees, the environment had a serene, dream-like quality.  I’d highly recommend a visit!

Feeling Chic in Paisley

My Tribal Jumpsuit from Gypsy Chic was perfect for a stroll on a warm autumn day.  I love the vibrant colors and cheerful paisley print of the fabric, which is accented with a slender white belt.  The plunging “v” in the bodice felt flirty and daring, while the halter-style collar held everything securely in place.  This free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group contains sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies, so it is a great addition to any wardrobe.  To scoop up the gift for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to Gypsy Chic and tap the vendor ….so easy!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitted mesh version
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

Well, tomorrow it’s back to the old grindstone for me, and back to guard dog duty for the pupster.   Wouldn’t it be great if every weekend would be a three day weekend?  Then again, after awhile, I’d probably wish for four day weekends…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sweater Weather

Dog Days

Sweater Weather is Here and I Love It

Fall has officially arrived, and it seems like the weather has changed overnight. I’ll miss the warm summer days, but there’s just something exciting about crisp, cool autumn air and the changing colors of the leaves.

I picked up this shirt and sweater combo from Loordes of London as part of the I Love School Hunt. Though it’s actually meant to be worn as a dress, I decided that it was a bit too chilly out here, so I added a pair of jeans. The SL Retro Look top comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L, as well as for Belleza mesh bodies.

The I Love School Hunt ends on September 30th, and all items are 1L.

I think it’s time for us to head inside for some hot chocolate.

Happy hunting! ❤

Pretty as Ribbon Candy

Bright and Sweet Like Ribbon Candy

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  While shopping on the Marketplace at the Believe shop, Ripley and I discovered this bright and cheerful fitted dance top for only 10L, and I wanted to quickly share it with you before I head outside to tackle the dreaded y-a-r-d-w-o-r-k before it gets too hot.  Fortunately, the sky is overcast and the high temperature is expected to be only in the nineties … so I’d better take advantage of the respite from heat while I can!

Pastel Stripes

I just love the stripes of color on this cropped shirt!  The pattern reminds me of the ribbon candy my mother used to get during the holidays.  With a playful, asymmetrical hem line, slender shoulder straps and pastel colors, this little number is just so happy and fun!  The fitted mesh top comes in XS – M and L sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to get a perfect fit.  Although I bought it a couple of days ago, the shirt description says the price is only for 24 hours, so if you’d like to scoop up this bargain for yourself, I’d suggest doing so quickly.

The pupster and I are off to pull weeds and pick up seed pods – oh the ever-fun life of a blogger!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Damsel in Denim

Walk With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  There is something about taking a long walk with a canine friend that just makes the stress melt away.  Although I don’t live in a rural area any more, and have to get my dose of country from SL, I still cherish walking with my faithful pal by my side.  I’m sure Ripley enjoys it just as much as I do since he is alone during the day with only the cats for company.

Perfect Attire for an Early Evening Stroll

My skinny jeans are the latest Fab Free group gift from Tiar.  With a snug, curve-hugging fit, realistic wrinkled texture near the knees, and rolled cuffs, these pants are just right for a casual outfit.  Although I love to dress up, I am most at home in faded, comfy denim, both in RL and in SL.  This free gift includes sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies.  To scoop this goody up for yourself, simply head on over to Tiar, then use the teleport board at the landing area to travel to the Midnight Mania area where the gifts section is located.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Dotted With Stars

The adorable side-knotted crop top I am sporting today is part of a package offered by No Cabide on the Marketplace for only 49L.  The Alessandra set contains a pair of denim shorts (not worn), my summery top, and a texture change HUD for the shirt with 15 various options, including both solids and prints.  I opted for a medium blue sprinkled with golden stars, which I felt coordinated well with the hue of my jeans.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Shorts and top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for both
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

Ripley is ready and raring to go for a game of fetch-the-stick, so we’re going to have a little exercise session before we head on home.  I bet the cats will appreciate a tired pup who’s ready to nap all day tomorrow.  Sometimes that boy can get a little too rambunctious… Until my next post, happy shopping!
