Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Date Night Ready!

Black Lace

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  I have lots of things to get accomplished in RL today, but wanted to publish a quick post that features this sweet black lacy concoction. The Iris Dress is just perfect for a Saturday night date, and it’s free!

All Dolled Up

With sexy cut outs in the sides that show off a glimpse of skin and translucent lace, your avatar will look fantastic in this sexy frock.  Best of all, you won’t have to spend a fortune to look fabulous!  I love the floral pattern and the asymmetrical hemline of the skirt in my new dress.  While out in public, I made strategic use of the alpha layer of my Maitreya body to ensure my bits were concealed, but when back at home after a date night, the alpha layer won’t be needed! 😉 The free package includes both red and black versions of this mini for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Julia’s Scandal, activate the group tag (it’s completely free to join!), and tap the vendor.  You (and your date) will glad you did!

What’s Included:

  • Classic Avatar (in black and red)
  • Alpha layer
  • Ebody (in black and red)
  • Freya (in black and red)
  • Hourglass (in black and red)
  • Maitreya (in black and red)
  • Physique (in black and red)
  • Venus (in black and red)

The pupster and I are off to complete as many errands and household chores as we can.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Beach More, Worry Less

Salt in the Air

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It was one of those days in real life when the day to day stresses seemed to pile up on my shoulders, and all I wanted to do was escape to the shore.  Since I am a long way from the ocean, Ripley and I did the next best thing……we escaped to NorderNey in Second Life.  Of course, I had to wear the newest addition to my summery wardrobe – a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.

Like the Sea – Wild and Free

This beautiful Turquesa Boho Beach Dress from Poeme is perfect for soaking up some sunshine in the salty air.  It features slender spaghetti straps, a comfy casual cut, and a soft pale teal hue.    I really like the intricate white pattern which is swirled across the fabric.  The free gift package also includes a pair of Mandala Turquoise earrings that coordinate perfectly with the outfit.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, this warm weather frock is sure to fit most.  To add Turquesa to your SL closet, simply teleport over to Poeme, activate your Teleport Hub group tag, and tap the vendor.  If you’re not already part of the group, membership costs only 10L, and includes gifts around the grid.  It’s so worth the fee!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Mandala Turquoise Earrings also included

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Growing My Awareness

Rockin' the Polka Dots

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy April!  It’s always so exciting to have a new month roll around, so my pal Ripley and I can dust off his tracking harness and hit the trail.  My outfit today is from an April hunt that is not only fun, but also works to raise awareness about Autism, which affects 1 in 50 children.  I am so happy to do my part to support MixMatchMissy with this endeavor.  Her goal with this hunt is to encourage people to “pay it forward by thinking of how you can assist at least one person with autism into feeling safe, included, and valued.”  If you’d like to learn more about Autism or the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, please take a moment to visit MixMatchMissy’s blog post about the topic.

Rockin’ the Polka Dots

This adorable crimson frock with white polka dots from Thirteen is just simply adorable!  I love, love, love the cut out section in the front that allows for a peek at your midsection, and the high cut sides.  Playful spaghetti straps and a back that dips just below your shoulder blades round out the look.  Its eye catching color combination is sure to raise your spirits.  The prize package includes versions for mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can add this fun dress to your spring wardrobe completely for free once you locate the hunt object concealed within the shop.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

This hunt runs until the end of April, and contains lots of beautiful gifts.  Many of them are free, and some cost 1 Linden dollar, but are well worth the teensy cost.  The pupster and I are going to continue on with the hunt, and look forward to sharing some more Fabulous Finds with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Love and I were having a serious conversation about Whitesnake videos.  I’m not even joking.  We were talking about the hair, the wind blowing, the billowing smoke… I have no idea how we got on the subject, it just kinda happened.  While we were discussing the finer points of 80’s hair bands, I heard that Seniha had a new group gift out, that really went with my 80’s rock mood…

Here I go Again…

The Tamara Dress from Seniha is a animal print and flower concoction that really just screams “cavort on the hood of a car!”.  I may be extrapolating, but anyway, I stick by my assessment!  You can grab this dress by joining the Seniha group for free!  Then you can put it on and be as awesome as you possibly can.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Quick!  To a car hood!

Nope, I’m Not Too Old For an Easter Egg Hunt!

Happy Easter

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  After all of Kat’s Fabulous Finds from the Easter Egg Hunt over at the Land of Rainbows, I journeyed to the sim to check it out for myself.  Right away, I discovered the colorful egg from Ascend, and excitedly teleported home to open my free prize…

A New Stan

… and then discovered the Ben Slim Fit Shirt package included only versions for mesh bodies.  At first, that was a big bummer, but I had been toying with the idea of picking up a mesh body anyway, so I decided to take the plunge and go full mesh.  After my transformation, the top fit my Belleza Jake body to a “tee” (ugh, even I winced at the bad pun – sorry).  It showed off my newly acquired muscles, and the texture featured realistic wrinkles.  The front is a solid charcoal color, and a cheery holiday message is printed across the shoulder blades. Best of all, it was completely free as a gift in the Easter Egg Hunt, which I appreciated after my spending spree.  The hunt runs until April 6th, so there is still time for you to “hop” on over and do some searching for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I’m looking forward to blogging a wider variety of clothing than I was able to show in the past.  It will take some time to get used to my new face, but at least Ripley didn’t run and hide from me when I put it on.  Hopefully, the best readers in the world will think it looks ok, too.  Until next time, Happy Easter!

Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!
