As Luck Would Have It…

As Luck Would Have It

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post to share a stunning free skirt I picked up as a lucky board prize at .Lunaria.  The Kaelyn maxi skirt falls in a slender line from your hips to about mid-shin length, where it flares as it sweeps the ground for freedom of movement.  Ivory white in color (the windlight setting I used made it look greenish for some reason, but it is white), it features circular adornments at the waistline, which add visual interest.  I really love the sleek, sophisticated look this outfit evokes!  Kaelyn comes in sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Lunaria group tag (it’s completely free to join), and cross your fingers.  I was lucky enough to scoop this baby up during my first few minutes of waiting.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S and M (I don’t see an L in my folder, but that could be a glitch in unloading the package)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

About the Pie…

So, to give you an update:  while Ripley snoozed the afternoon away today, I *was* successful in creating a pie.  I have to admit, though, it took two tries to get a crust that rolled out large enough for the pie plate.  It smelled so delicious as the oven worked its magic.  We will see tomorrow how it tastes.  I’m hoping my luck holds out for a flavorful pie as well as it did for all my lucky board prizes in SL!  Until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating, and happy shopping to all our Fabulous Readers!

Sugar Lips

Sugar Lips 1

Hey Fab Free!

It’s always fun to get free makeup, because you get to try out some fun looks that you might not usually choose for yourself!  My recent visit to the Candy Fair brought me just such an opportunity, as I picked up a few fun little gifties! You can see the other gifts I picked up HERE.

Sugar-Sweet

My sparkly, sugary lipstick was a fun free gift from Pout! at the Candy Fair It comes in several different shades, and I think it looks quite fun for a night out with friends!  This lipstick comes with an applier for both Catwa and Lelutka.

Macaron Madness

Another little gift at the Candy Fair was the pretty nail polish applier from alaskametro.  I’ve only shown one of the options available, but there are a total of 15 different nail designs, all inspired by my fave french patisserie – the macaron!  This free gift comes with nail appliers for Maitreya and Slink, and there’s an Omega applier in there for good measure!  Here’s a close up of my nails for ya!

Sugar Lips 2

Pocket full of Poses

Last but not least, I always enjoy a good bento pose.  I love the way your fingers can get expressive!  This pose from Foxcity is only 1L on the marketplace!  Super cute!  You can grab this pose right here:

Well, Fab Free – I’d like to wish our American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Although I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving this year (up here in Canadaland!) I’m very thankful to be part of this awesome blogging family – thank YOU all for welcoming me so warmly.

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Jingle Those Bells!

Jingle Those Bells

Some might say it’s too early to start donning the Christmas gear, and usually I’d agree.  However, I just couldn’t wait to show you all this gorgeous group gift from Violent Seduction.

Winter Wonderland

Wearing the Astral Christmas dress that I found, I suddenly felt the urge to head to the North Pole.  Perhaps I was a bit foolhardy wearing such a skimpy dress to the frozen regions of the world, but the magical aura at the North Pole Village and Santa’s Workshop sim drove the cold from my mind.

The elves were merrily capering about, and the crystalline caves glittered before me.  Before I knew it, I was helping wrap gifts, and Santa himself was doing a practice run in his sleigh.

Lo and behold, the Christmas spirit had taken over, and I had to remind myself that it was still November.  Ahwell, I guess I’ll deck the halls anyway!

Astral Christmas

As I mentioned, this gorgeous red dress that caused me to cavort with elves is a free group gift at Violent Seduction.  The group is currently 100 Lindens to join, but they do have some other great gifts out, as well as three group boards, two of which Love previously blogged about HERE and HERE.

Sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Well guys, I’m going to go jingle some bells and hang out with the Sugar Plum fairy!

Just a Boho Girl and Her Pup

Just a Girl and Her Dog
Hello Fabulouses!  Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend must never have owned a dog.  Ripley brings me far more joy than any jewel ever could….although I do have to admit that a diamond wouldn’t have outrageous vet bills………  Aww, don’t worry boy, you’re still my #1!

Speaking of the Number 1…

Yesterday in my post {HERE} I highlighted a lovely dress that I picked up from Brii Underground for a song.  What I didn’t tell you at that time was that there are quite a few goodies at the store, all available for just one Linden dollar.  My beautiful boho outfit is one of them.  From the jeweled headband and accessories, to the hemline of my maxi skirt, the Mireia outfit includes everything I’m wearing.  I love the realistic texture of the cropped tank top, and the way its hue is echoed in the pattern of the skirt.  Raspberry and teal always look so delicious together!  The generous designer thought of everything you need for this complete outfit, including feathered earrings, a necklace, and a slender bow to accentuate your waistline.  There’s even a pair of sunglasses and a make up applier that I opted not to wear.  The lovely floral tattoo is also tucked inside the package.  I don’t normally wear body art, but this one was just too pretty to pass up.  To add Mireia to your inventory, teleport over to the shop, and locate the vendor in the 1L section on the front wall.  There’s no group required!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh skirt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Fit mesh top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Tattoo applier for classic avatars as well as Maitreya and Omega
  • Omega Make Up Applier for Catwa Head

Until my next post, happy shopping!

True Colours

When I’m feeling playful, I always reach out for some bright colours to wear.  You really can’t beat a pastel hair colour, and some hot pink.  Luckily, these generous SL creators have got my back!  My sweet do’ was a gift at Hairology, and was previously blogged by Pru HERE.

Hot in Hot Pink

Safira has a few free group gifts out right now, and one of them is this bright and cheerful jumpsuit.  It comes in a shiny midnight blue as well, for the days when you’re feeling only slightly less exuberant.  The Safira group is free to join, and there are quite a few nice group gifts in the store.  It’s definitely worth the visit!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The North Star

Cae has a birthday gift out right now to celebrate 5 years of pretty jewelry in Second Life.  The North Star bracelet features super cute silver stars that encircle your wrist, and a larger silver charm adorned with blue gems.  Very delicate!  The group is currently 100 Linden to join, and you can find the group gift in the notices section of the group profile.  I’ve included a closeup below so you can see the detailing.

Ok Fab Free – go light up the world with those bright colours!

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

Pretty in Plaid

Pretty in Plaid

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After a visit to the vet today, Ripley is snoozing by my side as I type this post.  All the excitement just wore him out.  Actually, he kind of looks like I felt after my flu shot earlier this week…  Poor boy!  At least he doesn’t need any more shots for awhile.  Before we headed out to the pet doc, the pupster and I discovered a free group gift to share with you.

Rich Hues for Autumn

My Fall Dress from Sevyn East features a black sleeveless sweater tucked into a loosely pleated plaid skirt that is topped off with bow tied at the waist.  One of my favorite outfits back in high school included a skirt very similar to this one, so as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew I had to have it!  I really love the deep colors, which are perfect for fall.  Although it looks like this frock is composed of separate pieces, it is actually all-in-one.  With sizes for classic avatars in addition to two mesh body versions, this free gift is a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Sevyn East, activate the group tag (don’t worry – it’s completely free to join!) and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Once I am able to rouse Ripley from his well-deserved slumber, we will travel around the grid, and locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st
