Water Cooler Break

Water Cooler Break_001

Busy working… sort of.

It was a busy day at the office and I needed a quick break so I stopped by the water cooler. I managed to get in a little social networking while I was there as well… like talking about my latest outfit find at Prism. I hunted down this 1L Winter Blows Hunt gift in no time flat to add to my wardrobe just the other day and it is perfect for a day at the office. My colleagues agreed.

What you get.

The outfit is one piece mesh, belt included, and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system bod. I paired it with a pair of black boots for a complete look, but you could always go with heels. For 1L and some hunting time, this dress is a steal.

Back to work for me… break time is over!

Some Things are Better Left Unsaid

ALB NEW YEARs EVE suit 2016 & shoes & fur & cap by AnaLee Balut

I feel like I could run away…

Swanky event… Soft music… Dancing slow and close together… Dressed in style… one too many drinks from the top shelf…

The words come out of your mouth before you have a chance to think about what you just said. You can hear the imaginary needle scratching across the vinyl  record as everything slows to a screeching halt.  The long awkward silence that follows… She recovers from your revelation with the grace and dignity that she is so well known for, but you just can’t hide the embarrassment on your face. You excuse yourself for some fresh air. You wonder to yourself how you could have been so imprudent as to let your true feelings known…

I’m dealing with a force that’s so strong…

While I’m out here coping with this awkward situation, let me tell you about my latest group gift find from ALB Dream Fashion. The FREE New Years Eve Suit 2016 is a stylish white suit that comes with some great and unusual accessories. Included in this package are a pair of White Mesh Shoes and a resizable cap (if you have unruly hair like me). It also comes with a fur stole to keep your shoulders warm on those chilly winter nights.

She comes outside, takes your hand, places a soft kiss on your lips, then whispers in your ear … ” Let’s go back inside where it’s warm…”

The Panty Peek

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulous Ladies! I have a bit of a sensitive subject I’d like to talk about today. I hope you can put aside my cheek(s) and just take it for what it’s worth!

That Day…

Do you remember “that day”?  The day when mesh was released, the alpha layers were introduced and women in Second Life became hollow?   Men (and some women too!) across the lands and sims fled their homelands leaving their excavated partners in search of  the rare panty peek.  Families were broken, hearts were broken and we…  as women leapt forward taking the big step into the future, being promised a time where garage door skirt prims were no longer an issue.  No more hair through shoulders, or big bulky sweater prims.  We remained strong, and patient while Linden Labs and creators worked together in pursuit of a dream.  A dream for us!  A way to mend our voided bodies put our lady parts back where they belong in hopes that maybe…  just maybe it would bring our men back home…

The Time Has Come!

Ladies…  Rejoice!  The day has finally come!  With the great strides that mesh has taken, becoming fluid and rigged to our bodies, we are now able to avoid those unwanted alphas with some of the newer fashion designs.  Sometimes it takes a little shape adjusting, but it is indeed possible to put “the peek” back into your SLife.  It’s now time to call out to your lover, put on your big girl panties and claim what is yours!

Maai Supports The Peek

Maai is in support of this cause and wants you to have these very cheeky, made for Maitreya mesh Body panties to wear under your dresses and skirts (or on their own if you like 😉 )!  For 1L on marketplace, you’ll receive the sheer keyhole cheeky butt panties as shown on my avatar in both black and white.  My “darling” fingernail polish is also courtesy of a 1L marketplace offer by Maai, so be sure to check out all of her offerings!

Telephone 

Modulus - Riano Jacket

I call you one the telephone…

Some days are just crazy, the phone doesn’t stop ringing, the emails are plentiful and the texts are nonstop.  But,  even though my days seem crazy I make sure to take time to communicate with those around me that matter, even if it’s just something silly to let them know I’m thinking of them.

 But you’re never home…

As I was touring the Ultra Event, (happening between now and February 15th)  I came across a FREE gift at the Modulus display. The brown Riano Jacket is FREE for members of the Ultra Event Group. The group is FREE to join, do there’s really not an excuse to grab it up.

I gotta get a message to you…

I’m all about wearing winter scarves, so I’m still wearing the FREE scarf I received from (red)sand as part of the free group gift for reaching 5000 members that I previously showed [HERE].  Hold on, I have another call… “Hello… What? Ok, Ok , I’ll stop and pick up milk on the way home…”

A Fab Free Breakfast Club

Wink
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! There are a few more days left to pick up the many FREE gifts available at the Anniversary round of Designer Showcase, so I chose a few more to share with you. I also couldn’t help but notice all the 80s and 90s movie nostalgia on the blog. I like it! Finally, did not go unnoticed that Carson claimed the role of Fab Free Black Sheep. That made me smile, and chuckle a little. To quote the best of all the John Hughes movies, the truth is “… that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal…” or perhaps in some instances a black sheep.

A Dress for a Princess & a Basket Case…

This mixed floral and animal print dress is the FREE Designer Showcase gift from Kendrasy Creations. No matter if you’re a princess, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, or perhaps even a criminal, this dress is perfect for a night out. The dress comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. I must admit, I do feel like a sassy princess in this dress. As with all the gifts at the Designer Showcase, you’ll need to join the Designer Showcase group to pick up this FREE gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.
Princess

… and the Jewelry to Match 

Yet another FREE gift at the Designer Showcase Anniversary round is this gorgeous jewelry set from Moondance Boutqiue. The necklace in the photo comes with a matching pair of dangle earrings. In addition the set can be resized and recolored with the scripted touch menu. This means the jewelry will match virtually any outfit whether you’re the princess or the basket case, or like me and a little bit of both! Don’t forget to wear that Designer Showcase group tag to get your gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Stood Up

Waiting_001

Stood up.

He said we had a date, and I was all decked out. Dressed to the nines. Fit to kill. You know how it goes. You find just the gown at ALB that can’t be passed up, especially since it’s free. I opted out of the full skirt and kept it simple, going only for the slinky white part with the draping back and the low cut neckline and then I waited at the door but he never showed up. It’s a good thing the dress didn’t cost me anything… or I might have more in the way of revenge than just petty aggravation on my mind.

Of course if you have an upcoming date, you can get this dress too… and it comes in all the right sizes: fitmesh XS – XL as well as Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

Waiting_002

Pairing things up.

I had a flair for dramatics. (So does he… I’m sure he’ll have some excuse.) So I added this jewelry from Lazuri to my dress. It’s the current group gift out. I’m showing you the necklace and cuff bracelets, but there were also rings and earrings too. They are even color change, with a choice of silver or gold metal and an ability to change the color of the pearls as well. Lazuri frequently sets out large sets of color change gifts, so though the group fee is 250L, it means a lot of jewelry for your group fee.

I wonder if he’ll show up late to pay the ticket for the bottle of wine I ordered…

A hunting we will go

A hunting we will go

A whole slew of new hunts!

The New Year has been kicked off with a number of fun hunts, making me excited to see how many more great ones there are to come. These last couple of days have been spent going down several hunt paths and luck seems to be on my side as I haven’t gotten lost or turned around or spent fifteen minutes in a store only to realize I’ve been looking for the wrong hunt prim all along. Anyway, I’ve put together some of those hunt prizes to come up with my look of the day and here’s the rundown;

Cute and Curvy Hunt 2

Having been stuck in sweaters and jumpers and coats (oh my!) for the better part of two months I was most certainly in the mood for something that showed just a bit more skin. The sultry Amal top from Blasphemic was perfect for my needs. Not only did I adore the unique design of the top, the deep blue and black color combination was very eye catching as well. The Amal top comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) as well as sizes for the Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass and Physique) and Maitreya mesh bodies. There is no alpha layer included in the prize package but I’m wearing the standard size S in the picture above and the top fit like a glove. There are so many sizes included in this gift so play around and hopefully, there will be one that’ll fit. This top is just too great to pass up on! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 costs 1L and the hunt is running until the 31st of this month. Just look for the pink lollipop!

Medieval Hunt

As I’m always in the market for new boots, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Evil Stumper boots when I opened up the hunt prize from Lady Dragon’s Designs. There’s really nothing evil in adding a new pair of shoes to your collection (amirite?) and I really appreciated the rugged cut of this pair. If you’re tired of flat stompers worry not as these boots are heeled and it also has pretty red detailing on its buckles because even when we’re stomping about evilly we can still look pretty while doing it. Full disclosure, however, the boots do not come with an alpha layer. To get a fit I had to play around with some of the other alpha layers that I owned (having a million boots comes in handy really) and ended up having to use the alpha layer provided with my Slink feet. If you do decide to get the Stumper boots for yourself the Medieval Hunt is a 1L hunt that runs until the end of this month. Keep a look out for a shield.

SLF Birthday Hunt

To celebrate four years in SL, Second Life – Free is hosting a 0-1L hunt that spans across the grid as well as the marketplace. Holding both simultaneously is an interesting concept if you ask me and it’s where I found another pair of pretty earrings (if this keeps up I’ve going to need another drawer for accessories). These beautiful ball earrings with its delicate lace flower patterns from Asutris were a great way to spice up the outfit. The pair come with an easy to use resize script so that you play around with the sizing and permissions are set to copy so you can make as many backups as you like. A clearer picture of these darling earrings are provided below but the SLF Birthday Hunt is running until the 11th of February with lots of great prizes to be had. Keep your eyes peeled for the SLF Birthday logo.

Non-hunt related

After an exhaustive time hunting, I decided to kick back a little with a nice spot of fishing at Sn@tch. Love’s blogged about the fantastic new fishing prize {HERE} and while I was trying to get my hands on it (those boots still elude me grrr) I took a peek at what’s in their riot vendors. Needless to say, they’re filled with goodies and the two faced jeans are just one of them. Who knew that such an unsavory aspect in people could translate quite fashionably to clothes. These jeans come in ten distinct patterns (floral shown) with the choice of pants and underwear layer for classic avatars as well as omega appliers for avatars using compatible mesh bodies. I got my copy for 69L if memory serves but if you’re planning on getting these bring…everyone and push those prices down. The riot vendors change out regularly and that only means more goodies.

A hunting we will go headshot

Getting lucky

Ahhh there we go, a close up picture of those fabulous earrings. While we’re on the subject of closeups, I found that skins from Deluxe Body Factory are just great for that. I love how realistic they look and those beauty marks only serve to make their faces more unique. Pictured is the Jasmine skin which I won off the Lucky Letter boards at Deluxe Body Factory. The prize package includes one classic skin in the tone chai as well as a brow shaper and an alpha layer to hide system eyelashes. Lucky Letters are free for group members but if you’re not currently one there is a one-time join fee of 299L. Personally, I find it worth the price as there are a lot of Lucky Letters at the store and Midnight Mania boards as well.

And that’s a wrap. Time to put my aching feet up unless Commander’s (the Polar Bear cub) gone and dug up the carpet again. Catch ya later guys!

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!  She …  Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting fun.  My shooting aim of course is horrible…  The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun…  If I am aiming at them, they are pretty safe.  It’s the ambulance windshield right next to him that needs to worry…  or the tree WAY over to the left.  It’s a good thing Carson just follows around behind me shooting them all dead.  Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…  but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!  The new 22 piece prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:  Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL  The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

Someday My Ship Will Sail

My Ship Will Come In

My spirit hungers to go on, someday my ship will sail

This smexy, curve-hugging dress is the latest free group gift from Entice. It comes in black, gray, and a yummy dark red via texture-changing HUD, all with a black belt and trim. You can mix and match the skirt and top to get the look you like. Sizes include:

  • Belleza Freya, Venus, and Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

My spiky, strappy stilettos (Maitreya only) are a free gift from LYBRA at The Crossroads Event. You can’t see it from this angle, but those heels could seriously put someone’s eye out! The current round of The Crossroads will be ending on January 28th, so be sure to stop by and pick up the fabulous gifts – see Carson’s post for some great menswear items and mine for a pair of must-have winter boots.

Last but not least, my necklace and earrings are free gifts from Chop Zuey. No group is required; just on click on each to pay 0L. You can also pick up the set in gold, which was previously shown here by Astrid.
