Some Days, You Just Get Lucky

A Single Sunbeam

Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are off today on a camping adventure to the mountains (just in time to escape a horrible heat wave), but I couldn’t leave without sharing this free outfit with you first.  I just love the design of this one!

“To Me, Flowers Are Happiness”

This quote from Stefano Gabbana says it all.  When I put on an item decorated with posies, I just have to smile.  I absolutely adore the combination of denim and the pretty floral print in this Naira Top and Skirt from Safira.  I know, I know, just yesterday I told you about a cute top that I picked up as a free group gift at the shop, but I also mentioned those group-only lucky boards.  This free outfit just so happens to be one of the ten prizes that group members can win if their lucky letter appears.  There were quite a few avatars in the shop while I was there, so the boards turned over very quickly and it didn’t take too long for that often elusive “K” to pop up.  I did a little happy dance, then scurried home to open up my prize.  The top is actually composed of two segments – a bandeau section and the long sleeves.  You can wear them together as I have done, or just the bra piece by itself to change up your look.  The skirt features a high waist, a zipper in the back, and a flirty hemline.  It’s a bit on the short side, so I made strategic use of the alpha layer on my mesh body, but it also has built in undies (the C string).  The generous designer included a texture change HUD so you can alter the shade of denim in the skirt, as well as the metals, and you can turn on and off the C string section and change up its color.  I really really love the hues in this set, and best of all it was free!  All I needed was a bit of patience and membership in the Safira Store Group (50L join fee).

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I will miss you when I am gone and hope you have a wonderful time in the next week.  I look forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with you when we return.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

All on a Lazy Summer Day

Think Pink

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I put his talented nose to the test today and headed down the trail of the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  Our first discovery over at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes actually inspired my outfit.  I hope you are in the mood to think pink, because that’s where my mind went.  The best part?  My entire outfit cost just $26 Linden dollars!

The Inspiration

After locating the lounge chair hunt icon concealed inside Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, I was inspired to put together this entire look just based on these cute Kendra sneakers.  My picture does not do justice to the intricate designs on the canvas of the sneakers, so I’ve included the vendor close up below.  I immediately fell in love with the delicate white blossoms and stitched swirls.  The white piping, sole and lacing are just perfect for completing the look of this casual set of footwear.  They are designed to fit classic avatars as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh feet.  A shoe base and alpha layer are tucked inside the folder.  To add these shoes to your inventory, all you have to do is find the hunt object and pay the teensy 1 Linden dollar price.  There is a hint giver in the shop if you don’t have a super sniffer dog 😉 or if you need a nudge in the right direction.

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

The other day, I told you about a group gift that I had picked up just for being a member of the Safira Store Group, and I mentioned how there are 64 past gifts up for grabs.  Well, this adorable Mindy top is one of those free gifts.  Of course, I chose pink to coordinate with my new footwear, but with the included texture change HUD, I had the option to go with five prints or four other solid colors.  It’s like getting ten tops in one package!  Its ruffled trim on the hemline really ups the cuteness factor!  It is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  You do have to be a member of the Safira Store Group to receive this gift, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but there are a LOT of other goodies available to members, plus group-only lucky boards, so I am super happy that I joined.

But You Said 26 Linden Dollars…

The final touch for my summer day outfit was a new pair of Worn Denim Shorts that I picked up on the Marketplace at the Bang Bang shop for 25 Linden dollars.  They are short but not too short and feature folded up cuffs and a beaded belt around the waist.  The jeans texture on these shorts is really well done and the stitching and button closure are very realistic looking.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  I’m sure these will become a summer time fave of mine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pastel Ice Cream

Pastel Ice Cream

Another magical element of summer that I enjoy all too much is the plethora of frozen treats you can get!  It seems to me that ice cream is no longer just a thing you have on its own, but a crazy amalgam of as many sweet things as one can stuff into a small container.  I’m not complaining about the craziness of today’s ice cream, on the contrary…I say bring it on and why not dress just as sweet to match?

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards for the month of July over at Safira!  5 cute outfits (plus the 5 that went up last month) that are all sorts of adorable!  I got this two piece look while hanging out there, and you must admit that it’s really sweet.  I like a good pleated skirt, and if it’s turquoise I surely can’t complain!  To get yours, just join the Safira group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are loads and loads of great gifts to pick up while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Magical Beret

I told you all yesterday about the free gifts over at The Crystal Heart Academy, but I had one more thing I really wanted to show you that I picked up while I was there weaving my way through the magic wands and sparkles.  This hat and hair by Ayashi is simply divine, don’t you think? It just makes me super happy.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the event, and you can wear it with or without the hat.  It comes in several hair colours as well as a super useful HUD to change the hat colour.  Cuteness overload!

Geez, this ice cream is so tasty!

A Place to Hideaway

Dust Bunny

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well.  It’s super hot here in RL and I’m trying to stay cool in SL.  I found this lovely hide away on the Small Town Green sim.  It’s a sweet little spot where I have been curled up listening to some old LP’s while Ripley is frolicking outside with some friends.  Now THIS is the way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

I Must Have Flowers, Always and Always

This pretty little Ellie top from Safira that I’m wearing features vibrant blossoms splashed across a solid background.  I went with a black color scheme, but with the included texture change HUD, I could have chosen 29 other backgrounds for a floral print or 30 solid hues as well.  Talk about flexibility!  It’s kind of hard to see due to the position of my hand and braid, but this crop top has the cutest little knot in the hemline, just to the left of center.  While the neck and back are fairly high, the sides do dip quite low, so you might want to wear a jacket or opt for a hairstyle that provides side coverage.  To add this little number to your inventory, you’ll need to be a member of the Safira Store group.  There is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but this allows you the opportunity to gather a number of group gifts for free, so it’s well worth the cost, in my opinion.  I counted 64 past gifts, plus 3 current gifts on display upstairs, as well as 5 lucky boards.  That’s a whole lotta wardrobe additions that you can pick up for free!

What’s Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nowhere Over the Rainbow

Nowhere Over the Rainbow

Welp, it’s Monday again Fab Free!  We just keep on rollin’ on, don’t we?  Sometimes when things get a bit monotonous, I need to bust out the bright happy colours in SL and tuck a few flowers in for good measure.  Also, I believe someone once said “When you don’t dress like everyone else, you don’t have to think like everyone else”.  That’s a sentiment I can get behind!

In The Name of Love

There’s a new group gift at Safira celebrating Pride!  This sexy little cropped tee is free with your 50L group join.  You gotta love that, because there’s a massive wall of gifts to pick up too while  you’re there.  The Pride top comes with an HUD of a dizzying array of colours, as well as several different rainbow options to represent the different realms of the LGBTQ+ community.  Gotta love it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Middle of Nowhere

If you have a growing collection of backdrops like I do, or even if you’re looking for a nice little building to add to your living area, I found a cool free backdrop by The Bearded Guy over at the Unik event.  If you join their free group, and head over to the group gift booth, you can pick this cool little shed (which you can’t go into, but is quite detailed nevertheless) for free!  I can’t say no to photo ops!

Hope your Monday is brighter than bright!

Virtually Tropical

Virtually Tropical

You know, I’ve never been to an actually tropical place.  I’ve been to hot places, warm places, and absolutely freezing places, but never somewhere I would classify as tropical.  I think I’d be pretty good at being in a tropical place.  Wait, would I though?  I’m born and bred in the frozen North of the world, and when I really think about it, perhaps my constitution isn’t really up to the frizzy hair and massive bugs.  That’s ok though.  I’m on the grid where these little problems aren’t a thing!

Dressing it Up

For my virtual jaunt through the tropics, I found a great dress to keep me virtually cool.  I picked up this beauty over at Safira and I gotta say I love the pinks and turquoises.  I’m not lying when I say they’re my fave!  I got this dress by joining the Safira group for 50L and then heading upstairs to the massive gift wall.  You can build a whole wardrobe out of just the gifts on that wall!  Safira is a great group to join and stay in, because members are continuously spoiled!  Woot!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

See you all in the tropics.  But not you, you terrifying buggy things!
