Summery Shimmer

Summery Shimmer

Summer always makes me want to wear bright colours.  Orange isn’t necessarily one of my go-tos, but there’s something about a warm, iridescent orange is really lovely and summery.  Pair it with a cold drink, and you’ve got a great Saturday night!

Back at It

I’m still shopping and hopping all over the place!  SL19B rages on with more free gifts than you can shake a stick at.  And by that, I mean you’ll be rolling in freebies for the next who knows how long – no need to join a group, just click on the boxes!  Here are the goodies I’m showing off today:

  • FREE dress by [ADD] sized for Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya and Maitreya Petite
  • FREE drink by Bubble in both right and left hand holds

SL19B is running until July 10th, so you still have time to mosey around collecting all the goodies.

Cheers to Saturday Night!

By the Sea

062322 - By the Sea 01

Some days I wish I lived by the ocean. I could take walks on the sandy beaches and ride my bike on the boardwalks. Maybe I could do some window shopping at the local boutiques and grab a drink at a cafe. But, I do not live by the ocean…so I do these things inworld instead.

Cheeky Monkey Hunts – ‘All the Colors’

For the month of June, Cheeky Monkey Hunts is running a super fun hunt called ‘All the Colors’. You can see details and hints on their website. The hunt runs until June 30th at 12pm SLT. Each participating designer has three choices of prizes they can set out: 1L, 25L or 50L. The 25L and 50L prizes are exclusive to the hunt. You can find the starting point here.

  • My necklace and earring set and the bicycle are available from Loredana Loring of Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop. The jewelry is unrigged with a resize script and the earrings have a script in them that allows the colors to swirl and move! The bicycle is so cute! It can be used as decor and you can also sit on it, as there are 12 PG poses in it…split between male and female. Both items are 25L exclusives.
  • The tank top comes in a set of three colors from Mikki McLain of The Bold Llama T-shirt Co. It is a 50L exclusive prize. The set includes this black, a blue and a burgundy shade. They fit the following mesh body sizes:
    • Belleza
    • Legacy
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Reborn
    • Slink
    • TMP
    • Tonic

A few more things…

I wanted to grab a few other things that are currently free or super cheap, to style the outfit with. Can I just say, I could be…am guilty of stuffing my inventory FULL of gifts from the Marketplace!

  • The summery shorts I paired with the tank top are only 10L on Marketplace from a store I found called Gifts Home. They include an HUD that allows you to choose from four different prints and they fit several mesh bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink
    • TMP
  • My cute little sneakers are only 1L on Marketplace, from MH Unique Design. You can change the colors with the included HUD on them as well, with 10 print options. And they fit the following bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink

West Coast Dreaming

West Coast Dreaming

Well, I’ve found my way back to the beach, though this time I’m thinking about the West Coast.  There’s something refreshing and somewhat unexpected (at least for me) to head off in a car and drive for seven days until I see mountains.  Then, beyond them, large swathes of driftwood-covered beaches, tall pines, and fresh air.  It’s like all the fun of sun-baked beaches without the possibility of becoming a straight-up lobster.

Happy Anniversary!

LSR are celebrating their anniversary right now, and they happen to have a new group gift.  This (rather skimpy) top and skirt can be worn separately and come with loads of different tie-dyed options (and other!) in the HUD.  To get yours, plus the bajillions of other gifts and lucky board prizes, just join the LSR group for 99L and head upstairs to their gift area.  You’ll have a whole new wardrobe in no time!

Sizes

  • Erika
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Perky
  • Petite

Road trip, anyone?

Ebullient

Ebullient

I totally want to be the person who bursts into a room with bubble gun that blows out heart-shaped bubbles.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to be that person with the never ending supply of weirdness and ebullience?  She’s always got gum in her purse, and a plan hatching for shenanigans, and she does it all with style.

Get in Now!

A little birdie told me that Masoom’s group is currently free to join!  I’m not entirely certain for how long, so get in while you can!  There are some really awesome group gifts, a few of which I’m currently showing you:

  • Free top and skirt in both red and pink sized for Kupra, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Reborn
  • Free belly chain sized for Freya, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy
  • Free shoes sized for Freya, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy
  • Free gloves sized for Belleza, Slink, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy

There are a whole bunch more, too, and all excellent quality and super cute.

Here’s the group join key (just copy and paste it into your local chat): secondlife:///app/group/e402ddb4-f2ac-2a93-d637-111e26f22084/about

How to Keep Cool

How to Keep Cool

Time for bright, cheerful and extremely sugary vibes!  It’s supposed to be super super hot here tomorrow – something like 40 degrees C, so I’m pre-empting the heatwave with some sweet shaved ice before I wilt entirely.  I’m sure it won’t work, but at least I feel like I’m doing something about it!

Rawr!

The latest group gift at Belle Epoque has just made it’s appearance, and it’s put me in an excellent mood.  It comes in two parts, so they can be worn separately and mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe.  Some of the other textures in the HUD are just absolutely adorable too, like foxes, watermelons and floral patterns – a must have.  To get yours, join the Belle Epoque group for 10L, then click on the vendor – pick up the other awesome group gifts while you’re there too, they’re ah-mah-zing!

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep cool, Fabbies!

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

Have you ever been to a party and just felt overwhelmed by all the people?  It happens to me quite a bit, so here I am hiding in the bamboo and having a little breather.  What?  It’s a legitimate strategy!

Feeling like Queenz

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  This top and skirt is perfect for a party and I love the gathered fabric.  It just gives the dress something a little special.  It comes with an HUD with plenty of different colours and textures to choose from, so you’re sure to find something.  The top and bottom can also be worn separately, so lots of options here.  The Queenz group is free to join, and you’ll find lots of awesome group gifts on the wall!

Sizes

  • BBW
  • Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

See you in the bushes!

Hello hello, FabFam! I may look relaxed in this snapshot but I am anything but! As you all must know by now, The Second Life 19th Birthday is going strong and has 20 SIMS this time! It’s huuuuuge! And that means it has a ton of free gifts for us to collect and open. I am up to my pointy little ears in gifts, ya’ll! There are so many cool things to show off I don’t know where to start. So let’s just jump in!

This dress… I flat out love this dress! This is “Elena” from Salt and Pepper. The lace… the shine… it makes my heart happy. It’s just beautifully made, the lace is SO detailed and lovely, I just can’t get over it. Plus you get a full fatpack of colors for both the base fabric and the belt and sleeve caps. Salt and Pepper really knocked it out of the ball park with this gift.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy + Perky
  • Maitreya + Petite
  • Reborn

My new sandals are another big winner today. These are the “Enola” leather flats from Hilly Haalan, a designer we already love. The flats come with another huuuuge fatpack of options to change the feather, the chain, the beads and the body of the shoes. This is the kind of gift we always hope to get at a big event like SL19B! Thank you so much, Hilly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Call of the Waves

The Call of the Waves

The beach is calling!  Figuratively, of course.  Wouldn’t it be weird if a pile of sand suddenly called you, and you looked at your phone and mumbled “I don’t recognise this number…” and you pick up, and the beach is all like “heyyyy buddy…come splash in the waves!” and you just leave your normal life behind to become a beach person forever?  Um.  I don’t know what just happened there.  But…we’re going to the beach!

5,6,7,8!

Vanilla Bae have some big sales going on this weekend (they call them bake sales…heheheh).   Anyway, as the sales are happening they’ve also put out a new group gift in the middle.  These leggings are inspired by cheer workouts (the side says 5-6-7-8) and come in both tight and loose versions.  The Vanilla Bae group is currently 50L to join, and there are a few other group gifts to pick up too.  This gift is most likely going to disappear after the weekend, so don’t delay!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Still Shopping and Hopping

I found a cute top and phone to go with my new leggings at SL19B.  Putting together a look is the thing that I have to most fun with when it comes to blogging (That and apparently rambling about who knows what).  So, I stopped by the Masoom booth to grab this little cropped top as well as the Boutique 187 booth for this cell phone to celebrate SL’s bday.  Both are free, and there’s no need to join a group to get them!

Top Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Reborn

I wonder if the beach knows ice cream’s phone number…

Memento Mori

Memento Mori

Happy Friday, Fabbies!  I’m heading back to my roots of dark, gothy vibes.  I’ve often ruminated on the fact that I started off my SL as Ms. Dark Cloud, swathing myself in black.  It always makes me giggle a bit, since really – that is the antithesis of who I am.  I’m the one who bursts into giggles at the mere mention of sausage (don’t ask), or tosses glitter about with wild abandon.  Anyway, it just goes to show – you really can be exactly who you feel like being at any given time in Second Life.  And I think that’s pretty great.

Dark Lady

I put this look together with a few awesome freebies I picked up at SL19B.  Now, we’ll be covering the event fairly extensively, as I know that not everyone is going to go to every single booth and pick up every gift and…gasp…unpack them.  So, in the hopes you’ll see something you like, we’ll do a general smattering of lovely free gifts, and give you ideas of just what you can do with them.  So…here’s my look:

  • FREE hair by Ade in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE hat by Psycho Barbie with 13 different textures in the HUD
  • FREE Lipstick by Alaskametro with an Omega Applier and BOM layers

SL19B is running until July 10th, so there’s plenty of time to check it all out.

Who will you be today?
