With a Little Help From My Friends

Wild and Free

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I met some new friends today at The Mill and paused to capture a snapshot with them.  Mr. Ears was shy and didn’t want to look at the camera, but his pal Blackie happily obliged.  Isn’t Chippers just the cutest little chipmunk ever?  He is part of the pose pack “Snuggly” from Nani that I discovered on the Marketplace for only 50L.

My outfit today is a free group gift from Machka Design, and includes the darling floral shorts and knit cropped top shown in the picture, plus cowboy boots and a shirt that ties around your waist, which I opted not to wear today.  The color of the top reminded me of pale morning sunshine.  I like its high collar and sleeveless design.  Echoing the flowers scattered in the field at The Mill, the pretty botanical pattern on the shorts was perfect for a casual day spent exploring nature.  The Machka Design group is completely free to join.  To add the Santa Rosa outfit to your inventory, just switch over to the group tag, teleport to the shop, walk inside, and tap the box on the floor just inside the doorway.

What’s Included in the Gift Package:

  • Mesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for shorts
  • Knit tank top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Alpha layer for cowboy boots
  • Shirt tied around waist in XS, S, M, L, XL

You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…
You Give Me Butterflies 3

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!

Spring is in the Air

Spring Posies

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….thank goodness!  This has been quite an eventful week in RL for me, and I’m really looking forward to the weekend.  While Ripley and I were out exploring, a group notice from Fabulously Free in SL (my *fav* group ever!) popped on my screen, detailing the newest free group gift from Eloise Baker.  Of course, after one peek at the photo, I high-tailed it over to the Time Portal sim as fast as my fingers could click the link!

Lavender Love

My spring floral dress in a lovely purple hue is the free gift offered to FabFree members at Eloise Baker.  This sweet, strappy feminine frock features a slightly flared and ruffled skirt.  With pastel-colored, contrasting flower-dotted panels, and a curve hugging fit, this dress is sure to flatter any figure.  Its timeless, classic design can be accessorized for vintage role play, yet also is perfect for a casual, modern look.  Soft and graceful, this dress is definitely one of my most favorite Fabulous Finds!

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Belleza, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

To Top it All Off

To add an elegant touch, and shield my eyes from the bright sunshine, I donned a wide-brimmed summer sun hat, which I scooped up for a mere 29L at the MESHit store on the Marketplace.  Since it’s completely customizable, it was easy to edit the color and texture of the hat so that it perfectly coordinated with my dress.  It seems as if they were made for each other!  I love the mysterious aura I get with the angle of the brim covering my eyes.   With its reasonable price, and flexible options for color and textures, this versatile topper is sure to find its way into many blog pictures in the future.

Better Days are Coming…

… namely Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  I hope the rest of your week passes smoothly, and you have plenty of free time to visit boutiques or do whatever you like in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Feel Lucky Today

The Best is Yet to Come 2

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I were at My Style, and picked up the outfit for my last post {HERE}, I couldn’t resist scooping up another free group gift, this lovely Maya top.  It has a fun tie that wraps around your midsection and ends in a cute little bow.  Three quarter length sleeves and a plunging neckline complete the look.  The gift box includes appliers for Freya, Isis, Physique, Hourglass, Lara and Venus mesh bodies.  To add this sexy number to your inventory, swap over to the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group tag (it’s free to join), and tap the gift board.

The Best is Yet to Come 1

Those Little Added Touches

Since my cropped shirt was a free gift, I had some wiggle room left in my budget, and picked up the Miley Collar from Euphorie for just 70 Linden dollars on the Marketplace.  This versatile necklace comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from 10 different hues of leather, and six varieties of metal trim.  I selected black to coordinate with my outfit, but I could have easily added a splash of eye-popping color.

With Saint Patrick’s Day rapidly approaching, I slicked on polish from the Get LUCKY! Mani Pedi Mini set from Bombora.  This 15L Marketplace find helped me get into the holiday spirit.  With the handy HUD, there are 5 options, including several versions with shamrocks, as well as this green and gold tipped finish that I applied today.  Who knows, maybe some of the luck of the Irish will rub off on me.  Actually, this would be a good time for a game of Greedy.  Too bad Ripley doesn’t play because, just like Mary Chapin Carpenter, I Feel Lucky!

Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Butterfly Kisses

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to Hobbiton this week, and I had the magical experience of having a butterfly alight on my outstretched hand as I stood in a garden of wildflowers.  If you haven’t traveled to this lovely sim, it’s well worth the trip!  Modeled after the Tolkien tales, and filled with whimsical references to scenery from the novels, Thunder Dragon Island offers optional, light-hearted role play, a peaceful setting, and spots for couples scattered throughout its landscape.

A Jeans and Tee Kind of Girl

Since I knew we would be exploring the wonders of nature, I opted for a casual spring look for our journey to the land of Bilbo Baggins.  I assembled my outfit from free group gifts available at My Style, and it was perfect for the mild spring weather we encountered.  The strappy, cream colored Kelly top  kept my shoulders free to feel the dappled sunshine.  I particularly enjoyed the loose-fitting satiny texture of the fabric.  My well-worn capris continued the carefree theme.  Complete with rolled cuffs, a buff colored belt, and a realistic, faded texture that echoed the milky hue of my tank, these pants are sure to become a spring wardrobe staple for me.  Both items of clothing are available completely for free as group gifts at the My Style store.  Simply swap over to the Avangardista tag for the Kelly tank and the My Style tag to scoop up the trousers.  If you’re currently not a member of either group, don’t let that stop you, as both groups have 0L join fees!

Included With the Kelly Top:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Included With the RAF Jeans:

  • Fitmesh for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Time for a Game of Fetch

My peaceful encounter with my new butterfly friend did not last long, as it was soon disturbed by a canine pal dropping a branch on my toes (ouch, Ripley!).  As the beautiful winged creature fluttered away, Rip gave a joyful woof and nudged the stick, just in case I hadn’t noticed its crash landing.  Guess I’d better indulge in his favorite past time in order to save my pedicure.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Rambling Gypsy Soul

Rock Those Polka Dots
Hello wonderful readers!  I have an adorable, middle of the week Fabulous Find to share with you today.  I know it certainly brought a smile to my face when I added this free outfit to my inventory!

Rocking Those Polka Dots

Gypsy Chic’s free gift features a sweet, salmon-colored halter mini dress sprinkled with polka dots, and topped with a denim bolero style jacket.  Loosely fitted, with softly draped folds in the skirt, this frock is sure to flatter any figure.  I love the semi sweetheart style neckline, and the retro appeal of the entire outfit.  PinkMelon is a free gift for members of the TeleportHub.com group.  Although the group has a 10L join fee, there are so many goodies bestowed upon members, it’s a worthwhile investment.  The free package includes mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M and L sizes, as well as the requisite alpha layer.  The dress fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly once I adjusted its built-in alpha layer.  To add this adorable number to your inventory, simply activate the TeleportHub.com group tag, journey on over to The Event and Hunt Office, and give the gift board a tap.

Grateful For the Little Things

When I was out with the pupster on one of our shopping jaunts, we moseyed over to EarthStones, which just so happens to be one of my favorite jewelry stores in Second Life.  I meandered around the store, admiring the many baubles on display.  Meanwhile, Rip sniffed around, then excitedly grabbed my hand, led me over to the teleport board, and nosed the “Bargain Loft” section.  He didn’t have to show me more than once!  We popped upstairs, and in no time, I spotted the perfect accessories, priced well within my budget at only 75L each.  The Grateful Necklace and Bracelet, both in Ramble on Rose, echoed the pink and white tones in my dress, and suited my outfit to a “T.”  If you are in the market for jewelry, I encourage you to check out all the budget-friendly adornments available in the loft at EarthStones.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

The Road to My Heart

The road to my heart 1
Hello Fabulouses!  It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is only nine days away.  So much has gone on in my real life the past couple of months, it seems like the last time I looked at my calendar, it was the beginning of December, and now it’s almost the second week of February!  Lucky for me, I already have a special Valentine who is always by my side.  The road to this girl’s heart is paved with paw prints, specifically, my pal Ripley’s.

Just in Time for the Holday

With my free jumper from AnaSTyle, I am all set for V-day with plenty of lindens left to splurge on Ripley snacks for my sweetheart.  This darling, satiny red outfit has slender straps, golden hearts, and delicate lace trim.  I really like the gathered fabric at the waistline and how it emphasizes the curve of my figure.   A gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group, this package includes my entire outfit, not just the clothing.  My heart choker, shiny silver earrings, bracelet, hand held heart, and red heels for slink high feet are tucked inside the box as well.  There are so many items included in this one gift!  I love it when I can get a complete outfit in one fell swoop! To pick up this Valentine’s Day ensemble for yourself, just teleport over the AnaSTyle, switch to the SLF&O tag, and click the gift sign.  The group is free to join, and the gift is available to you for no charge as well.

The road to my Heart 2

What’s Included:

  • Romper with lace in XS, S, M, L, XL Fitmesh sizes
  • Alpha layer for romper
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies
  • Slink high sandals
  • Heart bracelet

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

When Things Go Bump in the Night

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 2
Thump!  Bang!  Clatter!  The hair rose on Ripley’s hackles as the eerie noises crashed towards us on the evening air.  A deep growl began low in his throat, and his eyes focused on the back yard door.  My heart pounding, I grabbed a lantern (since I was in a medieval-style role play gown, a flashlight was out of the question) and, with a pounding heart, I made my way into the darkness of the yard, my steadfast protector by my side.

Brave Beatrice at Your Service

Now, what I was going to do when I met the maker of the noises, I hadn’t the faintest idea, but it seemed to me I just had to investigate.  At least I was elegantly dressed in my free Beatrice gown from AnaSTyle.   Featuring puffed sleeves, a laced bodice, and a delicately embroidered long skirt, this beautiful formal frock is perfect for role playing or just strolling around looking lovely.  The rich, red fabric and deep golden accents provided a vivid contrast to the white top.  I’ve been attempting for a week now to win one of the Mini Mania Prizes at AnaSTyle, and also claiming as many of the Lucky Board prizes as I can.  While waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I cammed around the shop, and spotted a Guess and Win game board.  The lovely Beatrice gown is one of its many rotating prizes.  All I had to do to capture this exquisite dress was to don my AnaSTyle group tag, and click tiles until I made a matching pair.  The AnaSTyle group has a 50L join fee, but with all of the gifts, Mini Manias, Midnight Manias, group-only lucky boards, and game prizes up for grabs, it’s a worthwhile investment!

When You Hear Bumps in the Night 1

What’s Included

  • Mesh Dress in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Necklace
  • Belt (not shown)
  • Keys (not shown)
  • Coordinating shoes (not shown)

The Mystery Solved…

As I held my lantern up high to illuminate the yard, I caught a glimpse of our nocturnal visitor.  Two glowing eyes stared worriedly back at me, while their hungry owner debated continuing to scavenge in the trash bin, or dashing off in a mad scramble.  After a warning rumble from my fierce watchdog, the raccoon quickly decided on the latter, and made a hasty exit to the nearby woods.  Breathing a sigh of relief, and making a vow to set out an extra bowl of food for our ravenous neighbor, I headed back inside with Ripley.

Here’s hoping you have a peaceful, safe evening wherever you are, Fabulous Readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

purple dress_012
Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  “Not all those who wander are lost.”  One of my favorite quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien, which lends itself well to today’s post.  The wanderlust bug bit Ripley and I today.  We decided to hit the road in this retro VW bus.  When we reached The Yorkshire Dales sim, we pulled over to camp for the night in our vintage vehicle.  While I lounged in comfort, daydreaming about our adventures to come, Rip cavorted across the grassy meadow, sniffing out bunny trails.

A Passion for Purple

Along our journey, the pup and I had pulled up outside the Petry Model Store, and meandered through the boutique to peruse the inventory.   When I saw the collection of group gifts on the wall, I quickly joined the free Petry Model Store group, and started shopping.  This lovely violet-hued dress was the first free group gift to catch my eye.  As you could probably tell from the hue of my blog post headings, purple is one of my favorite colors.  As soon as I saw this mini, I knew it was my next outfit to blog.  From the front, it appears as though the dress provides solid coverage (which it does in all the right areas), but the side and back views offer a sexy peek of skin.  It features a plunging v-neck, sash at the waist, and a slightly gathered skirt with an asymmetrical hemline.  Before I detail the contents of the gift package, here’s a full, front view picture:

purple dress_011

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza applier for the dress
  • Optional Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega sock applier (not shown in my pictures)

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my look, I slipped on an amethyst pendant from Elemental Earth Designs, which I found on the Marketplace for only 50L.  Its teardrop shaped, sculpted gem is a perfect match for the color of my dress, and the price was right up my alley, too.  The simple styling of the pendant along with its leather cord, provided just the right amount of sparkle while still allowing my dress to shine on center stage.

Time to Rescue the Bunnies

I think it’s time to reign in the pupster, and give the bunnies some well deserved peace and quiet.  After relaxing next to the campfire with a cold beverage for me, and a refreshing bowl of water for the rascally rabbit chaser, we’ll hopefully spot a shooting star to wish on before we call it a night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Free as a Bird (or Two)

Be Kind. Even on Your Bad Days

Well, hello there Fabulouses!  On this cool, gray day, Ripley and I set out to explore the Whimberly sim, and we met up with some old friends we had first encountered waddling up a ramp into their washtub pond {HERE} over on the Painter’s Link sim.  As you can see, they are all grown up now, and have migrated to a home of their own away from Mama and Papa.

A Thick, Knitted Sweater to Ward off the Chill

Even though it was a brisk cloudy day, I stayed cozy and warm throughout my visit with Cali and Abigail, thanks to my free sweater from Luziefee.  My Tula knitted shirt is the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from designer Luzie Cheng of Luziefee.  I discovered three versions tucked inside the package – red, blue, and  green.  Since its bands of cool colors reminded me of the beach glass I used to collect as a child, I opted to wear the green sweater for my photo. Each color pack comes in a variety of sizes from XXS to L, so you are sure to find just the right fit for your avatar.  The texture of the chunky knitting is quite realistic looking!  Also included in the present is a Nail HUD so you can apply perfectly matching striped polish to your fingertips if you so desire.  Sadly, I didn’t notice the polish until after I had snapped my photo.  To add Tula to your sweater collection, simply switch over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, pop on over to Luziefee, and click the gift board.  It’s easy and completely free!

Glitter Glass

Ripley must have known I was in a beach glass state of mind, because he approached me with the Powder Blue Glitter Glass Necklace from Evica dangling from his mouth.  He nudged my leg and offered me his Fabulous Find.  As you may already know, my boy has a nose for bargain-priced fashion finds, and today was no exception.  He had discovered this gorgeous piece of jewelry on the Marketplace for a mere 50L.  After slipping the bauble around my neck, I rewarded the pup with his favorite Ripley snack, and we shared a celebratory high-five.

Complete the Look

The other day, when I logged on, I was happy to see an offline IM that had been left by Fabulous Reader, Rowan Carroll, telling me about a nail art shop I had never been to before called The Odd Eyed Cat.  As soon as I read the words “the entire store of appliers is under 75L,” I teleported so quickly Ripley almost couldn’t track me down!  There is an adorable pink, red and black striped Gillian polish on the wall for only 1L (definitely scooped that one up!) and tons of other color combinations for either Maitreya or Slink nails throughout the store.  When I spotted the Tabitha Nail Applicator in Neutral Blankes, I was entranced by its metallic, gleaming finish.  The blue tone was a lovely match for my sea glass sweater.  I only spent 59L for 12 hues of polish in this one package.  It was a great deal!  Thank you for the tip, Rowan! 🙂

Off to Face the Middle of the Week…

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, and the weekend will coast ever closer after that.  This week has already seemed extra-long to me, even though it’s only Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off.  Until my next post, happy shopping, my friends!
