It’s Still Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in really quickly today to share this adorable sweater dress/scarf combo.  I picked it up as a free gift over at S@BBiA just for being a member of the S@BBiA group (which, btw is completely free to join).  Featuring a cozy cable knit pattern, long sleeves and a thick scarf to keep out wintry winds, this is a perfect end of winter (a girl can hope, right?) outfit.  I love the soft dusty rose hue.  The gift includes a texture change HUD for the neckline and wrist cuffs, but I chose to keep them the same shade as the rest of the dress.  Many of the gifts that I come across are for mesh bodies only, but the Cable Knit Dress (in one size fits all) includes an alpha layer so those rocking classic avatar bodies will be able to sport this outfit just the same as those with mesh bodies.   Best of all, you get both the scarf and frock for free!  After I slipped into some thigh high boots, the pupster and I spent the late afternoon hours exploring the Rosehaven Dreaming sim.

What’s Included:

  • Cable Knit Dress (one size only)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Texture Change HUD
  • Knit Scarf

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Take a Breather

Take a breather

I’m taking a page for Pru and Aline’s book…. or from their posts… and taking a minute to find some calm. Take a break, so to speak. The Holiday season is always full to the brim with presents and shopping and decorating and baking and eating and parties… Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it all.  So I took a minute… and a glass of a very nice adult beverage and took a breather.

Merry Christmas

Amid all the hustle and bustle, so many of my favorite designers have shown us their holiday spirit and given their groups some lovely gifts. S@bbia, one of those favs, has really out done herself and given us this beautiful cozy outfit just to say “Merry Christmas”. Each piece here, the boots, the skirt and the sweater are all separates. It’s like getting three gifts in one. Use the sweater to top some cute jeans or add those delicious boots to a mini skirt. It’s all up to you! Just join the S@bbia Group, it’s FREE and get your “Merry” on.

Sizes Included

  • Fitmesh – one size

Don’t Be Giving Me That Cold Shoulder

FabFree: Don't Be Giving Me That Cold Shoulder

Hey there Fabulouses!  S@bbia has added a new group gift to their ever growing collection in the VIP area right by the front doors!

Not ready to fall – it’s still summer!

Now at S@bbia with a free group join you can pick up the Cold Shoulder Blouse & High Waist Denim Shorts as a free group gift.  The top comes in Physique and Maitreya fits, however the bottoms don’t specify which body they are meant for.  With that being said, they do fit perfectly on my Maitreya Lara, but they may fit more with the right alphas turned on.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! 🙂

I’m enjoying some quiet time by the lake this afternoon, but I wanted to pop in for a few moments to tell you about the adorable group gift that was just set out at S@BBiA.

The Sleeveless Blouse & Wrap Skirt-Short Pants come in one mesh size with an alpha layer. The back of the blouse fastens with a button and has a keyhole opening underneath. The wrap skirt-short is actually a “skort”… it looks like a skirt from the front and shorts from the back.

Both pieces can be worn separately.

Enjoy!

Just a quick note about my jeans. They were originally shown HERE by Love, and they’re still available on the S@BBiA lucky board!

When the Red Bird Sings

When the Red Bird Sings

Happy Christmas Eve eve, fabulous readers!

I woke up this morning to the sound of these sweet birds chirping in my new bird feeder. I just had to come out and say hello. 😀

Red and White

S@BBiA set out a couple of new gifts this month, and I’m wearing both of them here today. They are perfect for staying warm and cozy during a walk in the snow.

The first gift is my dress, which is new on the lucky board. The Slit Sweater Dress & Velour Pleated Skirt comes in 2 pieces, so you could possibly wear them separately if you wished. Both items come in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer.

The second gift is these red suede Western Boots, which are S@BBiA’s newest group gift. The boots are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet.

I love the way both gifts go together so well. 🙂

Christmas Cardinals

{What Next} sent out a new gift to group members: this lovely Winter Bird Feeder with cardinals. It comes in a snowy version (pictured here) and a no snow version.

You should still find the gift in your notices. If it’s not there, just head over to the {What Next} mainstore and click the vendor to receive your gift.

Whether you are with friends and family or spending the holidays alone, I wish you peace and happiness. ❤

Monday is Cancelled

Oh, hey there… you found me.

Yeah, I’m still sitting here drinking my coffee. To be honest, I was completely unable to adult today. Sure, I had tons of stuff to do, but I didn’t get any of it done. I’ll be sorry tomorrow. :-/

But for now, I just gonna sit here quietly and enjoy my coffee.

Coffee and Comfort

I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything done today soon as I put on this cozy outfit. The Parka Dress is the latest group gift from S@BBiA, and it comes in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer. I love not having to make decisions – like what size to wear – early in the morning.

To keep my feet toasty, I added the Baby It’s Cold Outside boots from Entice. You can pick up a pair for free by joining the SL Frees & Offers in-world group. The boots come in rigged and unrigged versions with an alpha layer so they should fit just about everyone.

Ok, I guess it’s time to pack it up and go inside. In the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all, tomorrow is another day.” 🙂

Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Everything I Wished For

Stargazing

It’s still early enough that the sun’s not quite up where I am and I can still catch a few of the stars that are out before the sunrise melts them away. Was that a falling star?! I made a wish! What will you wish for?

Everything I wished for…

… is at S@BBiA today. I got an amazing free group gift at S@BBiA yesterday and I had to share it with you so you could get it today. I’m not sure how long it will be out, so make sure you hurry! This back bow blouse with beige denim skirt is the current free group gift (the group is free to join) and it is just adorable.

The gift comes in one mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The two pieces are separate and they did include alpha layers, so I believe they would fit a system body very well also. I think they may be a very good quality fitmesh (or perhaps a Maitreya fit). The outfit might fit other bodies very well also and for the grand cost of free, who could pass up trying it out!

I’m going to catch a few more winks at the stars before they disappear completely. Happy stargazing if you go, and happy shopping!
