Ready for Back to Work? Yeah, No

Yeah, No

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I went camping over the weekend, and I have to tell you, when it was time to come home and get ready for work again, my shirt spoke my thoughts clearly.  Was I ready to head back?  Yeah, no.  I can’t be the only one who feels like that after a long weekend, so if you’ve ever had the same sentiment, you might want to pick up this free group gift for yourself and let your shirt do the talking.

An Eyeluring Tank

I was able to scoop up this soft cotton tank for free just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  It features a dark gray strip on each of the side panels, the perfect sarcastic response to a silly question, and a cut that is sure to flatter your figure.  Since the bold text really stands out against the snowy white background, everyone will read your message loud and clear.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body types.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the Eyelure store, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

And That’s Not All

I also picked up my Glaice leggings as a free group gift…this time from Revelation.  These shorts are packed with plenty of detail such as rolled up cuffs joined with lacing, a shiny belt, frayed areas on the pockets and a curve-hugging fit.  I can see myself wearing these throughout the spring and summer months.  The gift includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select from six options for colors for the jeans ranging from blues and grays to brown.  To add these versatile leggings to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Revelation Store group, but there is no join fee, so they are completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Take it Easy

Taking it Easy

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are heading out to go camping for a few days, and plan to just take it easy this holiday weekend.  Whatever your plans are, we hope you have a wonderful weekend yourselves.

Traveling Companions

These comfy casual Yareli pants from Wellmade are coming with us on the trip.  Best of all, I picked them up completely for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group!  With lots of attention to details such as the zippered cuffs, a ribbed design for ease of movement around the knees, and zippered pockets in the front, these pants are sure to please.  I really like the tan colored botanical pattern, which is scattered across the blue background – it’s just so pretty!  If you’d prefer a different color scheme, the designer thoughtfully included a HUD which allows you to change to a darker green background with pale blue flowers.   Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in this free gift.  To pick up a copy for yourself, activate the Fab Free group tag, teleport to the shop and click the vendor, which is way up high on the wall of gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Why Walk If You Can Dance?

Alice

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week got off to a terrific start yesterday.  I’m happy to be able to tell you that Ripley made it through his surgery and is back home resting and recovering.  He surprised the vet tech by chewing through his first catheter – silly, spunky boy!  Right now, after he was shaved for his ultrasound last week, and again yesterday on his two front legs and around his incision, he looks a bit worse for wear, but I am grateful to have him back home.  We will know more in the next week or so if the surgery was successful.  Thank you so much for your kind words of support.  They touched my heart.

Since I had some extra time while hanging out with my exhausted pal, I was able to discover some gifts that I am excited to share with you.  One is this gorgeous dress, which I picked up as a free Women’s Day gift, and the other is a sultry dance animation that cost just one little Linden dollar.  Even though I’m nowhere near as skilled as Love with her editing skills, I had fun making a little video clip to showcase the dance moves, and I hope you enjoy it!

First, The Dress

With its high neckline and long sleeves, you might think the Alice Dress would be on the “plain Jane” side, but its sexy slit, golden eyelets and tied lacing add spice and intrigue.  I love the way this little number clings to your curves and dips dramatically low in the back.  The fabric itself contains subtle ribbing and realistic folds.  The hemline falls just to the upper thigh, so you might need to make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body while out and about.  Although I opted for black, there is also a maroon version tucked inside the gift folder that is just as appealing.  To pick up a copy of this frock for yourself, teleport over to the Hilly Haalan shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Next, The Moves

Humanoid Dance Animations, one of my favorite animations stores on the grid, celebrates the return of Angie by offering the slow, sexy Angie_16 dance for just 1 Linden dollar.  It’s fascinating to watch how Angie’s dance animations are captured from real life, so I’ve linked Humanoid’s video below.  Here’s my little clip of how the dance appears in world:

 

 

Thanks for reading and watching.  Happy shopping!

Is Today Your Lucky Day?

Crossing Bridges

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post, I shared the latest group gift for members of the Scandalize group, and today I’m back with a Lucky Chair prize that group members can scoop up for free.  Sleek and elegant, I think you will really like this one!

When Lady Luck Smiles

Featuring a crop top with a cute twist detail in the fabric and curve-hugging leggings, the Senuna outfit is comfy yet packed with sex appeal.  The off the shoulder style of the top allows you to soak up some sunshine while long sleeves provide contrast and coverage.  In real life, I often have trouble finding sleeves that are long enough for me.  I wish more of my tops had the generous length that these sleeves do!  Even with its dramatically dipped neckline, the shirt still keeps you covered in all the right places.  For a bit of variety, you could opt to wear the fuzzy version of the top, which the generous designer also included with the prize.  In addition, you have two options for the leggings, both of which feature the word “Scandal” across the waistband.  You can opt for solid black as I have done in my photo, or add some pizazz with the ombre version, which fades from ebony to a rosey pink.  Either way, you will look stunning!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Pupster

You might know that Ripley is based on my RL dog.  Although he is fairly young, he has been having health issues for the past month, and the vet is not sure what is wrong with him.  I dropped him off for surgery this morning, and would sincerely appreciate positive thoughts and healing energy sent his way.  We were hoping to put off the operation until he regained more strength, but he took a turn for the worse over the weekend, and it can’t be delayed.  If you pray, please keep him in your prayers.  I’m worried about my pal.

Alright Spring, Do Your Thing!

Spring is in the Air

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your Monday treated you well.  If not, I’ve got just the thing to cheer you up – how does a free outfit sound?  My jacket, knotted cropped top and leggings all came as a group gift over at the Scandalize shop.

Spring is in the Air!

Ripley and I took a trip over to the Fox Paradise sim and enjoyed the ocean view while we frolicked in the green meadow.  The Elva Outfit is just right for those early spring days where the morning starts out a bit brisk, but then temperatures warm throughout the day.  All three pieces are worn separately, so as the mercury rises, you can shed the jacket and just sport the sexy white top alone.  I love it when an outfit is flexible like that!  Speaking of flexibility, the package includes two different versions of the jacket (the blue one I am wearing as well as an all white one) and two variations of the leggings – solid white and ombre.  You even get a HUD with a ton of options for altering the color of the buttons on the jacket.  To pick up a copy of Elva for yourself, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group, which has a 100L join fee, but there is an entire wall full of gifts up for grabs, as well as some lucky boards, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Paw-sitively Perfect

While we were shopping at Grumble, Ripley wandered over and started sniffing a tiny little pet bed and bone, which just so happened to be the hunt object for the Puppy Love Hunt.  The hunt is technically over, but luckily for me, the prize at Grumble is still available.  For just one Linden dollar, I scooped up a bauble which was right up my alley.  If you like fur babies as much as I do, this paw print dangling from a silver chain might be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit.  Don’t delay, though, because I’m not sure how much longer this will be up for grabs!

That’s a wrap for tonight.  Until next time, happy shopping (and hunting)!

A Gift From a Dove

Stand Tall

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  The pupster and I are popping in quickly to share this maxi skirt outfit that I picked up as a free group gift over at The Free Dove.  Way back when I was new to SL, someone introduced me to this marvelous shop, where I began my love affair with SL fashion.  Every so often, I return to check out the new arrivals, and this visit did not disappoint!  I came away with a swagger in my step and several new additions to my inventory.

She Has a Gypsy Soul

The Gypsy Swagger Outfit from Eclectique features a halter style top paired with a maxi skirt with a definite Bohemian vibe.  I love the deep, rich color scheme of this gift!  The two pieces can be worn separately, which adds to the versatility of the outfit.  The skirt features a darker waist panel with a drawstring bow hanging down, and a patterned fabric which ends in a slightly flared hemline.  The solid wine colored top echoes the predominant hue from the skirt.  You can pick up this boho-styled set for free, just for being a member of the Free Dove group.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I discovered a lovely formal gown that you can pick up as a free group gift.  If you’re not feeling blue, not to worry – this gift comes with a texture change HUD which allows you to select from 10 colors in all.  You’re bound to find a hue that suits your mood.

Ready For Spring

With its slender shoulder straps. low cut back and sleeveless design, the Falon Dress is just right for warmer weather events.  This frock clings to your curves and falls to a generous hemline which glides across the floor, and the overall look is that of sleek sophistication.  The bodice features a lace embellishment, which coordinates with whatever background color you choose.  I’m including a front facing view below so you can see the dress from all views.  Since the gift includes a HUD that provides a multitude of choices, it’s like getting ten dresses in one package!  Best of all, versions for classic as well as mesh avatars are tucked inside, so there is something for everyone.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the MLM Free and Offers Group, which is completely free to join.  Simply teleport to Sevyn East, activate the group tag, and click the vendor.  Easy peasy!

It’s Still Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in really quickly today to share this adorable sweater dress/scarf combo.  I picked it up as a free gift over at S@BBiA just for being a member of the S@BBiA group (which, btw is completely free to join).  Featuring a cozy cable knit pattern, long sleeves and a thick scarf to keep out wintry winds, this is a perfect end of winter (a girl can hope, right?) outfit.  I love the soft dusty rose hue.  The gift includes a texture change HUD for the neckline and wrist cuffs, but I chose to keep them the same shade as the rest of the dress.  Many of the gifts that I come across are for mesh bodies only, but the Cable Knit Dress (in one size fits all) includes an alpha layer so those rocking classic avatar bodies will be able to sport this outfit just the same as those with mesh bodies.   Best of all, you get both the scarf and frock for free!  After I slipped into some thigh high boots, the pupster and I spent the late afternoon hours exploring the Rosehaven Dreaming sim.

What’s Included:

  • Cable Knit Dress (one size only)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Texture Change HUD
  • Knit Scarf

Until my next post, happy shopping!
