Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s Just So Cute!

Island Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post from me to share a casual “take it easy” day outfit.  And boy, after the past day in RL, I sure need it!  I had recently purchased a new car after driving the same one for 12 years.  I have had it for 2 weeks, and someone hit it in the parking lot, leaving quite a bit of damage, and no note to claim responsibility.  What a bummer!  At least I could escape to this spectacular island in SL, and chill in my new jumpsuit.  The best part (since I now have to pay my insurance deductible – ouch!) is the outfit was completely free!

Another Dumpster Diving Find

In my last post, I shared a date night outfit with a coordinating men’s suit (it’s here if you missed it).  Stan and I picked them up as part of the Dumpster Diving Hunt that is running until August 31st.  Since we had such great luck at our first stop, Ripley and I decided to continue on down the trail.  At Fukin Cute, we quickly discovered the mini dumpster concealed in the shop and I excitedly teleported home to open the free package.  Nestled inside, the sporty Kardashi jumpsuit promised relaxation and comfort.  With its semi sheer tank style top, gathered waist, and long sleek pants, this little number will have you decked out in style.  The designer even included a HUD that allows you to alter the color of the eye catching stripes that run the entire length of the suit.  I opted for the purple combo, but you have 5 other choices if purple and pink is not your cup of tea.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hangin Around

Hangin Around

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  As you can see, Ripley and I decided to keep spending the weekend at the beach.  It’s a good thing I had picked up the latest free gift for members of the FaShIoNable Group over at ALB Dream Fashion.  The best part is since the group is free to join, I added a sweet summery outfit to my wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar!  After donning the bikini bottom and pretty cover up, I was all set for a day of strolling along the shore.

Ready for Fun in the Sun

With its tropical print scattered over a teal blue background, this outfit made me think immediately of palm trees and lazy days relaxing in the shade with a good book and a fruity Bahama Mama in hand.  The strapless cover up is knotted in the front and opens as it flows down to allow the cool ocean breeze to caress your skin.  A coordinating bikini bottom completes the look.  I like how the hemline is shorter in the front but drapes down to knee height in the back.   I enjoyed lounging around in this casual outfit so much that it’s making it hard to face Monday morning and the return to work!  Ripley is not helping as he is encouraging me to play hookey and spend “just one more day” at the beach…  I’ll simply have to explain how my salary pays for all those Ripley snacks Stan keeps bribing him with, and the pupster will be shoving me out the door in the morning.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy shopping!

Lucky Enough

Lucky Enough

Ahh to be lucky enough to live near the beach……sounds like heaven to me.  Unfortunately there’s not a beach within many, many miles of where I live in RL, so thank goodness for SL!  Today Rip and I explored the Voodoo sim and found a cute strip of beach there perfect for some summer relaxation.  The buildings are colorful and include beachside bars, a coffee house with yummy looking pastries, and even a seafood stand where the pupster and I paused to snap a photo.

Casual Summer Cutie

In my last post here, I told you about a sweet outfit that I picked up over at Fatal Fashion.  Everything I’m wearing today, from head to toe is included in another free gift from the same shop, called Outfit 007.  I say from head to toe, but when I was walking in the sand, I did slip off my heels in my main picture, but I will include a second shot below so you can see what they look like.  I just love this raspberry colored cropped top!  Although you can’t see it from the angle in my photo, there is a lovely laced detail on the sides that is super adorable.  It features an asymmetrical hemline and realistic looking folds in the fabric.  Ideal for warm summer days, the worn denim mini shorts have an unbuttoned fly and slender pockets in the front for tucking in small essentials.  Also included, the chunky necklace and golden bracelet add the perfect finishing touches.  To scoop up this summertime staple, you need to be a member of the Fit Mesh Fanatics Group, but since it’s free to join, you can add a complete look to your wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s a look at the Johan heels which are also included in the gift box.  Enjoy!

All Dolled Up For Date Night

Hello August

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a complete outfit that I picked up as a free group gift, just for being a member of The Third Life group.  The generous designer over at Fatal Fashion has put all the pieces you need including golden jewelry, a sizzling mini dress, and delicate heels into one gift box.  With just a quick stop at the shop, you’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

You’ve Got the Look

The Monna Dress features a back that dips down low so the starlight can caress your skin, and a neckline designed to flaunt your curves while keeping you covered in all the right places.  The texture on the dress is well done, and contains realistic folds and subtle highlights.  The hemline of this mini is quite high, so you might want to don a pair of panties or make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body.  Slip on the strappy heels, the chunky Midna Gold necklace, and even some upper arm bracelets (not shown) for the perfect finishing touches (all are included), and all eyes will be on you.  Since the Third Life Group costs only 10L to join, this free group gift will have you all dolled up for a very budget friendly price.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy shopping!

Sky at Midnight

If Only You Were Here

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While out on one of our meandering walks around the grid, Ripley and I popped into TRS Designs on a whim.  It didn’t take long for me to spot a gorgeous gown on the Midnight Madness board.  Since the target was just 20 people, I tapped the board, then crossed my fingers.

At the Stroke of Midnight…

Well, actually, it was quite a few hours after the clock struck twelve before I logged back in again.  Nevertheless, I was super happy to see the notification offering me the Trix Dress in Sky.  I quickly slipped into the frock and admired my new look.  It features a dusky blue bodice accented with decorative white stitching, and a long hemline that drapes from a high waist. This dress is ideal for a casual afternoon or a night on the town, depending on how you accessorize.  I just love the way the skirt is crafted with a wash of color in varying shades from a cream to an almost teal blue.  It’s just so pretty!  With only a narrow strap around your neckline, Trix leaves your back deliciously bare.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, this prize includes something for everyone.  Best of all, it’s completely free, and with the low target number, your chance of receiving the package is really high.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I couldn’t resist including a peek at the back view of Trix.  I hope you like it!

If Only

Until next time, good luck and happy shopping!

Oh How You Sparkle

Full of Stars

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday (or what’s left of it, anyway, lol).   I had such a busy day in RL that the hours just flew by.  Isn’t it funny that that never happens when you are in the middle of a dental appointment?  It’s just when I want time to slow down that it seems to whiz by.  That sure is the case when I am shopping and exploring in SL, especially when I find wardrobe essentials for free like this star spangled skater skirt.

Oh How You Shine

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, I was able to scoop up the 4th of July Skater Skirt from Ecce Bellus completely for free.  With a bright waistband, navy and red stars scattered across a snow white background, and a generous cut, this adorable number is sure to lift your spirits.  Since the gift package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for you.  I chose to keep my look clean and bright by pairing my skirt with a white top, but I also tried red and navy shirts, and was quite pleased with those results as well.   To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, look for the Fab Free logo on the wall, click the vendor, then get ready to shine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • E Body
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!

Feeling a Bit Foxy

Foxy

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After I saw Serena’s posts {here} and {here} and Pru’s post {here} about their discoveries on The Beached Bunny Hunt, I dusted off Ripley’s tracking harness, and we hit the trail.  Our first stop was over at Ink Blots, and it didn’t take the pupster long to sniff out a super cute cropped top that I am excited to share with you.

A Sweet Summer Top 

The knotted Fern top from Ink Blots features a botanical print in soft shades of green and teal splashed across a white background.  I really like its strapless design and the way the ties dangle down in front.  The back portion dips down low to allow your shoulders to catch some rays, which makes it ideal for warm sunshiney days.  I chose to pair the top with some worn denim shorts, but I think it would also look fantastic with a skirt for a dressier outfit.   To pick up this little jewel for yourself, all you have to do is travel to the shop and locate the hunt object, which is a beach sand pail.  The prizes in The Beached Bunny Hunt cost just 1 Linden dollar each, so they are quite budget friendly!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Discoveries at Dawn

Dawn of a New Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a lovely Sunday.  Before the weekend is over, I want to tell you about two group gifts that I came across early this morning in my SL travels.  Although I chose white for the dress, it comes with a texture HUD packed with 15 options, including prints and solids, so it’s very versatile!

Dress to Impress

The free Katie Dress from Hilly Haalan Fashions features a sleeveless design with loosely draping fabric which is gathered at the waist with a belt.  A v-shaped neckline and a small gathered section in the skirt add visual interest.  I really like the soft shimmering texture of each of the solid colored options for the fabric, and look forward to trying out the pretty floral prints, too.  The belt is colorized separately from the body of the dress, which really adds to the variety of looks you can create.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (no classic fits).  To pick up this free July gift for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Fabulous Shoes That Can Lift Your “Sole”

Of course, what would a new dress be without a pair of heels to go with it?  Selene Creations has you covered with their free July group gift, which is a strappy pair of sexy high heels.  With plenty of wiggle room for your toes and a criss-cross design, these ivory shoes would challenge my navigational skills in real life with their high, narrow heels, but in Second Life, walking and even running in them is a piece of cake!  The package includes Belleza, Maitreya and Slink fits.  You do have to be a member of the Selene Creations group to receive these, and joining costs 100L, but they are just so pretty!  Here’s a close up so you can get a better look at them:

Chase Your Dreams....In High Heels of Course!

I’m off to finish exploring Snuggles Forest with Ripley.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
