Ooh She’s A Little Runaway

Snapshot_001

Have you heard the latest scandal? I’m running away!

OK… ok… I’m not really running away, but I do have big news about a newly released design as a freebie at Scandalize and a fatpack of hair in a lucky board Runaway!

Lucky At Runaway!

I have been wearing more and more hairstyles by Runaway lately, and while I was in there shopping I noticed that there are several group lucky boards with (:O) fatpacks of hair in them!  You’ll need to join the group to gain access to the lucky boards, however that also means you’ll also gain access to the group gifts in the shelf at the customer service desk too!  I was lucky enough to win Vanessa as shown on my avatar today.  Vanessa is a sweet volumized ponytail style with a headband and bangs.  The headband is texture change so you can match it up to your outfits.

Scandalize Offers A Free New Release!

Scandalize has recently released their new Tabitha Outfit in a whole line of colours.  As shown on my avatar, this gorgeous dress has a layered look to it and is beautifully textured.  The best news about this new release, is that you can pick up the Sia colour FOR FREE!  I don’t know how long this offer is valid, so rush down there if you like it!  Just don’t blame me if you wind up buying more colours!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis

When Things Go Bump in the Night

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 2
Thump!  Bang!  Clatter!  The hair rose on Ripley’s hackles as the eerie noises crashed towards us on the evening air.  A deep growl began low in his throat, and his eyes focused on the back yard door.  My heart pounding, I grabbed a lantern (since I was in a medieval-style role play gown, a flashlight was out of the question) and, with a pounding heart, I made my way into the darkness of the yard, my steadfast protector by my side.

Brave Beatrice at Your Service

Now, what I was going to do when I met the maker of the noises, I hadn’t the faintest idea, but it seemed to me I just had to investigate.  At least I was elegantly dressed in my free Beatrice gown from AnaSTyle.   Featuring puffed sleeves, a laced bodice, and a delicately embroidered long skirt, this beautiful formal frock is perfect for role playing or just strolling around looking lovely.  The rich, red fabric and deep golden accents provided a vivid contrast to the white top.  I’ve been attempting for a week now to win one of the Mini Mania Prizes at AnaSTyle, and also claiming as many of the Lucky Board prizes as I can.  While waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I cammed around the shop, and spotted a Guess and Win game board.  The lovely Beatrice gown is one of its many rotating prizes.  All I had to do to capture this exquisite dress was to don my AnaSTyle group tag, and click tiles until I made a matching pair.  The AnaSTyle group has a 50L join fee, but with all of the gifts, Mini Manias, Midnight Manias, group-only lucky boards, and game prizes up for grabs, it’s a worthwhile investment!

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 1

What’s Included

  • Mesh Dress in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Necklace
  • Belt (not shown)
  • Keys (not shown)
  • Coordinating shoes (not shown)

The Mystery Solved…

As I held my lantern up high to illuminate the yard, I caught a glimpse of our nocturnal visitor.  Two glowing eyes stared worriedly back at me, while their hungry owner debated continuing to scavenge in the trash bin, or dashing off in a mad scramble.  After a warning rumble from my fierce watchdog, the raccoon quickly decided on the latter, and made a hasty exit to the nearby woods.  Breathing a sigh of relief, and making a vow to set out an extra bowl of food for our ravenous neighbor, I headed back inside with Ripley.

Here’s hoping you have a peaceful, safe evening wherever you are, Fabulous Readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just Keep Swimming

Snapshot_007
Hello FabFree!  Just swimming by to show off my new Chain Bikini in Purple that I picked up as a free lucky board prize at Cynful!  Yes…  I did say swimming lol, not surfing. This is how I swim 🙂 … I hate getting my face wet.  Swimming on a board, is the best of both worlds…  the cool water (in places you want it), and the hot sun!  This would actually be even better if I had a handsome man pulling me around.  That would free up my hands for a beer!  Why didn’t I think of that…

I have been trying for a good couple weeks to win this prize, and I was not disappointed by the quality!  This hot bikini comes in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza, but also included is XXS – L sizes in standard mesh for those still on system bodies or other mesh bodies.

You will need to join the group to take advantage of the Cynful Lucky Board offers, however the group is free to join – so no worries 😉
