A little while back, Serena showed you the Lagenlook Pants and Barlot Top by RIR Life that you could pick up as a gift at The Boho Culture Fair in her Desert Boho blog post, and if you loved the free spirited set as much as I did, you can also head on over to the RIR Life store and pick up a copy of the same set in the Brown Fantasy print which is a playful patchwork pattern as a group gift for joining their RIR Life group too.

Sizes Included:

Know all your angles

The Angles Pose Collection by West End was recently announced as a free FabFree group gift, and the pose I am using today is just one of five of the unique poses in the pack.  I love trying out different angles, and this pose set will be a lot of fun to work with!

Desert Boho

Desert Boho

Happy Monday, fabulous readers!

I was looking through a box of old photos and found this picture of me hamming it up during my ’70s boho days on Route 66.

Lol, not really! 😉

But a visit to The Mother Road sim reminded me of the decade I spent living in the High Desert of California. I didn’t live in a trailer in the middle of nowhere, but just a mile or two from my house you could find scenes that looked remarkably like this one… tumbleweeds and all.

Boho Chic Chick

To create my boho look, I stopped by The Boho Culture Fair (TBCF) and picked up a few of the MANY generous gifts.

First off, my outfit is TBCF gift from Rir Life.  The Bartot Top & Lagenlook Pants are a really fun, carefree look. You can’t see them here, but the pants have a short flare on each side, almost like they were made of big scarves. The top ties at the waist with just a hint of skin showing. Both top and pants are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Accessories

I also picked up some fun items to complement my boho look:

  • My Dream Catcher Choker is a free TBCF gift from SAGA. It comes with a HUD that includes 4 different metal colors for the leaves. Click the choker for the blue resizer menu.
  • My bracelet is a free TBCF gift from !IT! It includes a HUD with 10 different metals and is resizeable through the HUD.
  • Like my pose? You can pick it up as a gift from Stonerella at TBCF. Be sure to wear your Bento hands for the full effect.

The Boho Culture Fair runs through November 9, so you still have a few days to stop by. I could not give you direct landmarks to the individual vendors because you’ll wind up back at the landing point, but you can always do an area search to find what you need. You do need to join the Fair Lovers or Hunters in-world group to pick up most of the gifts –  it is only 1L to join.

BTW, Kat already showed this cute strapless dress by Gypsy Chic that you can pick up at TBCF landing point. Be sure to grab that one, too!

Cat Nap

Black Cat Nap

Happy weekend (almost), fabulous readers!

This week at work has been so busy and exhausting. I thought I would just relax on this bench for a bit and take a quick cat nap. I just wish that cat would stop staring at me! I mean, I’m really not spooked by black cats crossing my path, but it IS Friday the 13th, and one really can’t be too careful. 🐱

Casual and Comfortable

I love comfy fall clothes, and this casual, off-the-shoulder sweater dress from Rir Life is no exception. The Long Sleeve Halloween Dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, but there is also an alpha in the folder so it can be worn by classic avatars. The texturing is nicely done, and there’s a sinister-looking Jack O’Lantern face on the front.

To pick up this gift, head over to the Rir Life mainstore and join the Teleport Hub in-world group (10L join fee).

Put a Bow On It

To accessorize, I added a pretty bow choker. The Ribbon Choker is the latest (I think) group gift from The Little Bat. It is unrigged (meaning you can move it around), and the bow comes in 6 different metallic colors: blue, gold, green, pink, red, and silver (which I’m wearing). Click anywhere on the choker to bring up a resize menu.

Getting Hair-y

I popped into Elikatira last weekend to pick up the Fifty Linden Friday sale item, and guess what I found out? There’s a HUGE clearance sale going on, with EVERYTHING priced at least 75% off! I picked up this sultry Olivia hairdo for just 72L if you can believe that. Fatpacks are on sale for 375L.

I don’t know how much longer the sale will last, so I strongly suggest that you don’t wait too long. This is a great opportunity to stock up on some really wonderful hairstyles at a terrific price! 😀

The Sea is Calling Me

Snorkel
Hi There Fab Free’rs! To those who celebrate it, I hope you had a fun July 4th. Mine was almost unbearably humid but still a lot of fun. With all the humidity down here in the south, I have been craving beach a beach day, heck I’d settle for a pool day! Soon, very soon I’ll find my way to the water. Until then I’ll day dream here in Second Life, and do my best to look good the part! haha

Snorkel

I love this goggle/snorkel set from Rir Life. It’s a current group gift and I think it’s such a fun accessory. The gift comes with 2 versions, one to wear pushed up off your face (shown) and one to wear over your eyes. Also, how cute are the flamingos? Super cute! The details in this FREE group gift at Rir Life are great. The Rir Life group has a little join fee of 10 lindens. Once you’re wearing your group tag, just click the little gift back under the ad and you’ll get your copy. Also, the set can be easily sized via touch menu.

Trikini

My new snorkel set of course needed a new swimsuit to go with it. This cute trikini is even cuter on. I really should have taken a photo of the back, so you can see how it all comes together in a cool way. This swimsuit is a current FREE group gift at LANA. The best part is it comes with a color change hud. There are a few colorful patterned options, and several sold color options. The LANA group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. Wear your LANA group tag and click the gift ad to get your copy of this gorgeous swimsuit.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and one called “Original” which could be Slink Physique or a Standard Mesh. I’m not certain.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

This Way to the Beach Life

This Way to the Beach

Say, “Cheese!

Say "Cheese!"

After a week of having no cell phone, I was so excited to get my replacement phone in the mail today! In fact, I’ve been running around taking pictures with it all day… and making a bit of a nuisance of myself, I think. I’m still sad that I lost a bunch of photos that I neglected to back up, but I guess some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. Hopefully, the 99 cents a month that I’ve decided to fork over to upgrade my iCloud account will keep this from happening in the future. 😛

Ok, enough babbling about my sad phone story.

Sweater Weather

This cute skirt and sweater combo is the March group gift from RiR Life. I love the detailed texture of the sweater; it’s romantic and sporty and perfect for those late winter/early spring days when you still need a little warmth. The outfit comes as one piece and is sized for:

  • Standard Classic Avatar (one size)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Smile!

I found this cute selfie pose by Mirukuti on the Marketplace for just 5L. It does not come with a phone prop, so I used the one that came with my Vista Animations Miriam AO. I’m sure any phone prop would work fine, though.

Thank goodness these deer are being so patient with me. Cheese! 😀

Fiercely Cute

Fiercely Plaid
Well Hellooo. It’s a new day and I am glad of it. Yesterday I was feeling a little blue and thankfully Love was there to feed me brownies and listen to me while I talked through all that has been bothering me recently. I am forever thankful for the wonderful women in my life. Today I woke up with a renewed sense of self and a brighter outlook. Sometimes all you need is to talk it out, and the brownies helped too! You may or may not have noticed, I keep returning to this stance in my photos lately. I think it’s fierce, and I wanted to remind myself and everyone that we are all fiercely capable amazing human beings.

If I had to pick a pattern for the look of fierce, my go-to would be red plaid. This seriously cute dress is a FREE group gift from Rir Life. Even with the undeniably feminine cut of this simple dress, I feel strong and feminine at the same time. It is the sort of dress you could wear with boots, heels, or sandals and still look good. Heck go barefoot! The gift includes the mesh dress in fitmesh sizes as well as specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. To get this adorable FREE gift, head over to Rir Life and join their FREE group. While wearing the Rir Life group tag, just click the gift box on the counter under the vendor photo.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Catch & Release

Snapshot_004Good morning Fabulous Readers 🙂  Rir Life is a bit of an early bird and has their group gift for September out already!  The Rir Life inworld group is 10L to join, but after you activate that group tag you gain access to wonderful monthly group gifts.  The group gift for September is the pretty black Cross Back Maxi Dress you see me wearing in this post.  As you can see from the photo below it is trimmed with a splash of colour.

I found this awesome Steampunk Mesh Jewelry Set on marketplace in the LpOca store, priced at 1L.  It’s a great set and will go with so many different things!
untitled

The skin I am in today is [PUMEC]‘s Mila which is set out as a free gift above the reception desk at the [PUMEC] shop.  Inside the pack you will find a shape (I’m wearing my own shape), the skin with several eye brow options, cleavage option and tons of appliers in one HUD system.  Creola has previously blogged this skin [HERE], however I thought it took a totally different look on my shape and wanted to show it off again!
