Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.  Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!  There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.  Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.  You deserve it! 🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Extra Frill

Lacy Sweater
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are sure happy to be back in Second Life, and we’re also super excited to share our latest Fabulous Find with you.  We discovered this lovely Sweater With Lace Frills as a free group gift upstairs at Sweet E’sDesigns.  With its long sleeves and cozy knit, this soft green dress is sure to keep you toasty warm on mid-winter mornings.  What I really love about this frock is the lace trim on the cuffs and hemline, which adds a decorative, feminine touch that I thought was just so pretty!  Since I was blessed with a sunny day, I chose to wear the outfit with bare legs, but I am sure it would look just as beautiful with a coordinating pair of leggings.  The free gift package for members of the Sweet E’s group (free to join) includes fit mesh for classic avatars, as well as versions for mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Separate alpha layers for dress and lace
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Are You Feeling Lucky?

While I explored the shop, Ripley laid down in front of the four lucky chairs located at the top of the stairs.  I’m thankful he did, because after a short time, he ran over to me, grabbed my hand, and gently led me over the a chair with a wild card ? on it.  I came away with a 100L Sweet E’s gift card in addition to my lovely new dress.  So, I’d suggest keeping an eye on local chat to see if your special letter pops up, too.  I can’t wait to put my gift card to good use!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Time for a night on the town!  I’m feeling myself today, and I’m all about being the pampered princess.  That calls for big hair, high heels, and loads of pink.  I can just picture myself now, dancing to Cyndi Lauper, clinking glasses with my girls, and rebuffing any lame-o who makes advances.  Fries before guys, amirite? Uh…right. ANYWAY…

Girls Night

I’m working that late 80’s vibe tonight with the help of a whole bunch of gifts I picked up at the Midwinter Fair!  There are so many cool free gifts there, that putting together this outfit was a breeze!  My hot pink dress comes from the BouBouKi stall, and doesn’t it just make you happy? I paired it with this uber bright clutch by Luas Urban.  I really enjoy the bright colours, as well as the charms that are hanging on the little chain.  Cuteness!  No need to join a group, just pop round the stalls and click on whatever strikes your fancy.  Hurry though, the Midwinter Fair closes on January 17th!

Dress Sizes

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

Proud as a…

My last little outfit detail is a gift I picked up for free at the Gacha Guardians event.  This fun peacock hair comb just tops my hair perfectly! You can move it around to fit nicely with any hair do you may be rocking at the time.  Just join the free Gimme Gacha group when you land, and pick up your free gifties! Whee!

Wait…who’s that dishy guy over there? Maybe I will dance with someone after all…

The Masked Soirée

The Masked Soirée

I was invited to an exclusive masked soirée at the Manor.  The invite said “dress to impress”, and being someone who takes people at their word, I planned my outfit with aplomb.  There is nothing that will turn heads quite like a shiny bodysuit, and if it’s free, then who am I to complain?  I have to say, heads swiveled so fast in my direction, I wouldn’t be surprised if they all got whiplash!

Head-Turner

I found this hot little number at Belle Époque, where they have several great Lucky Letter boards set up outside.  There are so many fantastic outfits, but this one really fit the bill!  You can pick it up without joining any group for absolutely free, just wait for your letter to come up!  The bodysuit is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

The gorgeous peacock feather mask is also available at Belle Époque and is one of the Fab Free Group Gifts!  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free tag, and click away!  The Fab Free Group is always free to join and new gifts are being added all the time!

Well, I’ve got a full dance card, so I’m off to dance the night away with some handsome suitors….

Walk On

Walk On

Ah 2018.  You’ve arrived.  A brand new year, full of possibilities and newness.  It’s a chance to be the best me ever, and I’ve got myself a few resolutions to ensure this year gets rolling in the best way possible!

1 – Be more rock n’ roll
2 – Dance like nobody’s watching
3 – Eat more pizza
4 – Learn to say no

I’m working hard at that last one, since it’s clearly the hardest one.  I’m starting off easily with some clothes to inspire my ability to say no!

Here, Fishy Fishy!

I found my inspiring clothing at Sn@tch, who are always amazingly generous with their gifts.  This outfit is part of a really great mix and match fishing grab bag that has all sorts of great items, from shoes to pants, to hair and even tattoos!  You can really make all these items your own.  I’ve paired the Shiny Plaid Snowpants with the Untouchable Bra to emphasize the fact that I want people to step off and keep walking!  I also put on the Carter hair, because I love a good top knot!  You too can grab these amazing items (and so much more) by picking up a 7 Seas fishing rod (which you can buy right near the pond outside Sn@tch). The rod will cost you 100L, no bait required.  Pay once, and play for fishing outfits in the future!

Ooh, my doorbell is ringing!  That must be resolution number 3 at my door!

Low Key Glam

Low Key Glam

Happy 2018 Fab Free!

I am ready for a fabulous me in 2018, complete with more glitter, happiness and pizza. In order to start the year off right, I’m keeping my outfit kinda low-key glam, because 2018 calls for a bit of shine and a smidge of comfort.

Dress it Up

I got my sorta chill dress for free at Spirit & Kitja, who have put a few group gifts out, one of which Love posted earlier HERE.  I like that this dress is made of a comfortable fabric, and yet still has a hint of sexy, as well as the small 2018 that is just visible on my hip.  You can pick this dress up by joining the Spirit & Kitja group for free and clicking on the gifts under the tree.  Enjoy!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Shoe know it!

Phedora is being super generous for the New Year and giving as a group gift 500L in store credit.  There are plenty of great shoes to choose from, and as my giftie I picked up the Anael heels which are lovely with stylized wings on the sides.  You can join the Phedora group for 300L and see which fancy shoes make you feel awesome this New Year.

Lucky Locks

I spent a bit of time at Olive again, and won myself another smashing hairdo, which comes in a fun assortment of bubblegum hues.  I always say that a bit of colour goes a long way, especially if it’s free!  You can pick up the Sabrina hair without a group join, just by parking yourself prettily by the boards and waiting til your letter comes up!  My fingers are crossed for you!

Happy 2018, gorgeous readers – I hope it comes with oh so much awesome for you!

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

I’m searching my closet for the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve… Should I wear something sexy? Something sweet?  I can never decide… My closet is packed with clothing, and yet, nothing quite strikes my fancy (as always!).  I hit the pavement and searched high and low for just the right thing… And what did I find?

Scandalous!

I dropped by Scandalize and found they have a really hot strapless jumpsuit out as a new group gift!  I love how it looks sexy but sophisticated all at the same time!  You can grab the jumpsuit too by joining the Scandalize group for 100L.  The join fee is well worth it though, because there are loads and loads and LOADS of group gifts on the wall.

Sizes

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

So, what are YOU doing New Year’s Eve?
