A Dust of Snow

A Dust of Snow

 

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As a light dusting of snow sprinkled down from the sky, Ripley and I traveled to the North sim for a late afternoon stroll.  The only sounds that broke the winter silence were the crunch of our footsteps and the faint rustle of branches stirred by the breeze.  Although it was chilly, I was all wrapped up in a full length cardigan that we discovered as a free gift in the Women Only Hunt 4.

A Hug That Lasts All Day

As we walked, the thick knit of this Weirdo Duster from Oubliette nestled around me, keeping me cozy and warm.  It features a built in crop top, extra long sleeves, and slits in the side for easy walking.  It offered protection from the elements, and also provided a sexy glimpse of skin.  I knew I could always pull the edges closed if need be, but thanks to the magic of SL, I was totally comfortable, bare tummy and all!  Inside the gift box, I found versions for multiple mesh bodies, as well as an infinity scarf that I chose not to wear in my photo because my hair already had a scarf built in.  Since the Women Only Hunt 4 prizes are completely free, I scooped up this woolen wonder for a song!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Fashionably Frigid

Fashionably Frigid

I’ve been hunting like a maniac the last few days, and despite wanting to rip my hair out now and then, I’ve found some really fantastic gifties!  The Women Only Hunt has been delivering some fabulous finds (you’ve probably seen a bunch of them on the blog) and I hunted down an outfit for a chilly and fashionable afternoon of standing outside full-sized gingerbread cottages.

Dressed for Success

I’m wearing a dress of an icy hue that I got for free at Ersch through the Women Only Hunt.  With a little bit of patience, and perhaps some eye rubbing, I found this distinctive dress.  It comes with an HUD of pastel colours, and one with darker colours.  You can even go red and green for Christmas!  Basically, you can mix and match the bows and dress colour to your heart’s content.  Oh, and by the way the back of the dress has a cute heart cut out on it!  The Lensa dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Frosty Frames

The glasses I’m wearing are another Women Only Hunt free find from Dazed .  I really like the frosted glass on the glasses which give a cool wintry look.  Seek and ye shall find!

Strike a Pose

You can’t take a good photo without a cute pose, and this free pose was my quarry at Hello Poses.  The box had 3 different posing options and their mirrors in it.  You can pose all day long!

If you’ll excuse me now, I’m getting a bit hungry and that corner of the house has my name on it!

I’m Just Catching Snowflakes

Catching Snowflakes

Hello Fabulous Readers!  In my post on Monday, I shared the Women Only Hunt 4 gift from Naive.  The pupster and I continued along the trail, and today I have another free hunt giftie to share with you.  This time, rather than a formal, elegant look, I have a more casual sweatshirt, which is bound to keep you comfy and sheltered from the elements.

Hoodie Weather

The Abbie Pull Over from Justice is a sweatshirt that I’d be perfectly comfortable wearing in RL as well as SL.  In fact, as soon as I saw it, I found myself wishing I could have an exact duplicate for the real me to sport in the outside world.  There’s nothing like the warmth you get from a cozy hoodie on a wintry afternoon!  Featuring realistic folds, gray cuffs, and dangling ties which are hiding behind my hair, this sweatshirt hugs your curves and is long enough to seal out any breeze trying to work its way through.  I love its muted, dusky teal color.  To scoop one up for yourself, journey over to the Justice store and search around for the snowflake hidden somewhere inside.  Since this is a free hunt, you can pick up a fantastic top for just a small investment of your time.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

My hound with a nose for fashion and I are off to see if we can complete the hunt tonight.  I stocked up on Ripley snacks, so we should be good to go.  I sure don’t want to forget them again. Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Tiny Pearls of Snow

Evergreen

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Sunday to you!  Ripley and I encountered this cute, book-loving duo on the Deciduous sim, and I just had to pose with them to take a snapshot.  Aren’t they both adorable?  Mr. Chippers was busily stuffing his cheeks with Christmas cookies while Peeps was scolding him to save some for a poor, hungry bird.  I do hope there will be at least a few crumbs leftover for him!

White as Newly Fallen Snow

While we were out doing a bit of holiday shopping, the pupster and I paid a visit to Sweet E’s Designs, and I spotted a lovely lacey mini dress on the Midnight Madness board.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a quick tap, and continued on my way.  The next morning when I logged in, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer, and quickly set to work opening the package.  Nestled inside, I discovered the White Lace Dress I had hoped to win the day before.  I added the Maitreya applier, and presto – the bodice of the dress instantly appeared, hugging my every curve.  With its vertical piping, plunging neckline, and four gleaming buttons, this dress is just so pretty.  I love the loose cuffs that you add to the sleeves that give the outfit a romantic feel.  An optional collar and skirt panel completed the look, but since the temperature dipped quite low in my area today, I decided to remove the skirt panel and don a long, flowing maxi skirt instead.  This gift makes an adorable mini dress, but also does double duty as a beautifully textured top as well!

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Maitreya, Eve, Omega, Slink and TMP
  • Jacket, shirt and pants layer for classic avatars
  • Sleeves, collar and skirt panel (skirt panel has varieties for mesh and non mesh avatars)

In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman

Well, Izzie Button actually made the snowmen, and boy are they darling!  Set out under the tree at her shop as a free holiday gift to all, are two adorable pearl snowman earrings, each adorned with a bow tie and top hat.  She also included a texture change HUD so you can alter the hue of the pearls by selecting one of nine color options.  I opted to keep the pearly white tone to coordinate with my top.  You can see them better in my close up photo below.  No group membership is required.  All you need to do is teleport to Izzie’s Mainstore, and look under the tree.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the winter blush Serena mentioned in her post {HERE} as well as candy cane eyeliner that Love blogged {HERE}.

Hello Little Snowman

Sad News for Peeps

I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Chippers stuffed every single cookie from the bench into his cheek pockets.  Poor Peeps!  I promised him that Ripley and I would head over to the farm supply store and pick up some birdseed for him, but I think he was really looking forward to that gingerbread.  Hopefully a full bag of sunflower mix will help to console him.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

All That Jazz

All That Jazz

I got my gladrags on, so let’s cut a rug!  Standing on the edge of the dance floor, I’m just dying to jump in and jitterbug.  Wouldn’t that just be the bee’s knees?

Ok, I’m out of 1920’s parlance.  Nevertheless, the spirit remains:  This dress makes me want to dance!

Speakeasy Sparkle

I was completely inspired by this sparkly shiny dress by Seniha to teleport over to 1920’s New York and frolic with the flappers.  This silver party dress is a great little number for a fun night on the town, or even a hot date!  The detailing is quite superb, and the different shades of silver on the sequins gives a high level of visual interest.  The Amishar Dress is completely free at Seniha designs.  Just join their group for free, and pick up the dress in store.  There are also a few other lovely gifts on the wall for you to check out.

Sizes

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

Princess Vibes

To complete my 1920’s glam look, I added the Princess Tiara from Sn@tch.  I found this lovely filligree accessory at the Winter’s Hollow event, and it is also completely free!  It comes in gold and silver versions, and can be resized easily to fit any hairstyle you may have on!  There are a few other free and cheap gifts at Winter’s Hollow, so jump down and grab ’em.

Time for me to jump on the floor and be the cat’s meow!

Two Birds on a Fence

Two Birds

Hello there, Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  In the midst of a quiet morning walk, Ripley and I paused to listen to chirping and trills from two feathered friends perched on a rustic fence in the Oh Deer sim.  What a lovely start to our day!

Free as a Bird

Before leaving home, I slipped into my silver Rossi Skinny Jeans, which are a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group from Alter.  These curve-hugging trousers feature a lovely swirled embellishment on the right thigh that is just so pretty!  The designer also added soft folds at the knees and a frayed hole in one leg.  These jeans have been lovingly worn and are so so comfy!  To pick up a pair for yourself, journey over to Alter, activate your Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Casual Comfort

My warm Shoulder Sweater from Beck was a 50L Marketplace find that coordinated beautifully with the swirled pattern on my pants.  Its long sleeves and tight knit sheltered me from the chill in the air, while its one-shoulder-bare style added a touch of playfulness.  The sweater itself was comfortably loose, but featured a hemline that fit my waist snugly.  Designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body, this pullover is a terrific addition to my winter wardrobe.

Well, the pupster and I had better head on home and tackle our “to-do” list.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Proud as a Peacock

Proud as a Peacock

You know that problem we’ve all got in SL – not wanting to wear the same thing twice?  Well, I think I’ve found a dress that may make me want to break that rule.  ‘Tis the season for sparkly dresses, and this super pretty one is completely FREE!  Yummy!

You too can get this pretty number by just spending a few minutes searching for it on the rOrO cart at The Guest List.  Yep, no random walking about, no scratching your head for ages, just find the little strawberry on the cart, and it’s all yours.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

The Cotton Candy Beaded Gown made me think of peacocks – I do love the deep turquoises and purples of the dress, and the slit on the side made for a nice exotic touch.  A real showstopper for all the parties and events this season.  A golden beaded shawl is also included to keep warm on those chilly nights (not pictured).

Sizes

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

Now, did someone promise me champagne?

With Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

A Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I finished unpacking our prizes from the Pixies of Snow Hunt (you can read more about our adventure {HERE}), and discovered this exotic Neva skin from Stargazer Creations.  With cool blue and lavender tones swirled across a lighter blue base, this fantasy-themed skin would be ideal for role play.  I really was impressed by the quality of this free skin, and although it’s not my typical SL look, I really wanted to feature it in a blog post.  The prize box includes a skin layer for classic avatars and an Omega Advanced Applier, which allowed me to easily add the skin to both my Maitreya Lara body and Catwa head.  My picture really doesn’t do justice to Neva’s gorgeous tones and swirls of colors.  If you are planning to do some magical role play, and would like a free skin to start you on your journey, this free hunt gift from Stargazer Creations might be just what you need!  Ripley and I were able to complete the hunt in under an hour, so it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar and just a slight investment of time.

We’re off to find someone in need of a sprinkling of pixie dust.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

The Cold Never Bothered me Anyway

It has recently come to my attention that I often venture out into winter conditions in SL wearing the least practical thing possible.  But you know what I say to that?  I say I can’t catch pneumonia in SL, so I’ll wear whatever I want in cold weather! So there!

If you are also unafraid of hypothermia, then read on and find out how to get this striking gown from Scandalize at FaMESHed for free!

Shiver

The gorgeous Loan gown by Scandalize is sexy and striking all at the same time.  The greatest thing about it is that it comes in a full fatpack of colours, as well as loads of different ombré combinations.  Additionally, the top and skirt are separate so you can mix and match with other items in your inventory.  Basically, you can never run out of options for this dress!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Sparkle On

I also picked up a free gift from !Aphorism! at FaMESHed that is a pretty little trinket you can wear to all your holiday parties and beyond.  The Antique Bracelet is a delicate chain with a heart locket on the end that you really won’t want to take off.  Here’s a close up of the bracelet for your viewing pleasure!

The Cold Doesn't Bother Me Anyway 2
Nip over to FaMESHed and check what’s under the tree for you!  This round runs until December 27th.  I’d better go find a blanket before I shiver myself into the next sim!
