A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

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!

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)!

Goin’ Gone

Goin' Gone

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I have to get my house ready for the bug guy to spray (oh the joys of living in the desert with scorpions and other nasties), but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a really pretty hunt prize with you.  I’ve already blogged one of our other finds from the Puppy Love Hunt here, but I must say, I think this one is my favorite.

Lagenlook – What’s That?

The Byzantine Lagenlook dress from Coveted features a gorgeous golden design over a deep burgundy fabric, which happens to be a go-to color for me in RL.  Its slightly flared, asymmetrical hemline falls at about mid thigh.  Cap sleeves and a fairly high scooped neckline complement the figure-flattering cut of the frock.  Three covered buttons on the right hand side add visual interest.  I had never heard the word “lagenlook” before, so of course, I googled it and discovered that it is a style which incorporates wearing layers of clothing.  Although I chose to wear just the dress by itself for my post today, I think it would work well with additional items such as leggings, a jacket, etc.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Coveted store and locate the hunt object (a pet bed with a bone) concealed in the shop.  For just 1 little Linden dollar and a bit of time looking around, you’ll come away with a lovely outfit.  The Puppy Love Hunt runs only until February 28th, so if you like the prize as much as I do, don’t delay!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, I am off to vacuum and tidy up.  I can tell spring is coming because Ripley is blowing his coat, and his “German Shedder” hair is creating dust bunnies galore.  Thank goodness for the invention of the vacuum cleaner!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

There’s No Truer Love Than Puppy Love

Puppy Love

Hello there, Fabulouses!  In a recent post, Love stated that sweetness is her weakness, but for me, I would have to say my weakness is…. dogs and puppies!  No surprise there, right? 😉 While Ripley and I were enjoying a lazy afternoon at the NorderNey sim, I couldn’t resist scooping up this little ball of fluff for a quick cuddle before he left with his owner.  Isn’t he just adorable?  There’s nothing truer in the world than the love of a good dog, so it’s quite fitting that my top today features the word “LOVE.”

The Hunt Continues!

I picked up my cute tee for free over at the Valentine’s Hunt at the Justice store.  Until Valentine’s Day, you can search around the shop for 12 small hearts hidden all around.  Each of the hunt objects is set to sale for zero Linden dollars and contains a fantastic prize.  I’ve already shared a couple of them here and here.  If you have some spare time and are looking for some delightful gifts, I’d recommend you check out the event before it all comes to a close on Valentine’s Day.  The Brandy Shirt hugs your curves and features a gathered hemline with ties dangling down.  With a scoop neck and short sleeves, this is definitely a warmer weather top, but it was ideal for our trip to the shore.  A heart formed from black stripes, as well as the word “LOVE” spelled in bold, white letters complete the look.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

This is My Happy Place

Finding Sanctuary

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday!  Ripley and I are taking a quick break from the Valentine’s Hunt over at Justice to show you another of the free prizes from the hunt.  I know I said the Opal Tank was my favorite, but maybe, just maybe, I’ve found a new fave!  I don’t know whether this qualifies as a bathing suit, or lingerie, but the pupster decided it was time to play with his seagull friends, and led me to the shore on Sanctuary Isle…. so a bathing suit it is!

Red Hot

Harley, Valentine’s Hunt prize #8 at the Justice store, is a skimpy, super sexy bathing suit (or piece of lingerie) in a gorgeous crimson hue.  Complete with gleaming silver chain accents, this spicy little number is just right for a day of fun whether inside or out.  Best of all, after just a small investment of time, you can pick it up completely for free!  All you have to do is locate the heart shaped hunt object concealed somewhere in the store.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

After we enjoy the picnic lunch we’ve brought along on our beach getaway, Rip and I plan to return and try to ferret out some more of those elusive hearts.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Beachy Boho

Beachy Boho

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to check out the Education for Kenya Hunt and picked up this gorgeous Beach Bohemian dress for just 10 Linden dollars.  This hunt runs through February 28th and is a 50% to charity/50% to the designer hunt.  The charity is called Harambee Project Gwassi-Kenya and it helps to provide education and resources to people in Kenya.  If you decide to travel down the hunt path, you’ll be seeking a pencil shaped hunt object.   Pru also checked out this hunt, and you can read about the hunt gift she uncovered in her post here.

I Love Me a Maxi Dress

Even in real life, I tend to favor maxi dresses.  This one features an off-the-shoulder style, a close fitting, contrasting waist section, and a tiered skirt with accent stripes and a generous hem.  What first caught my eye about this beauty were the rich tones and the vibrant print.  A gold and blue botanical design is splashed across a crimson background.  It’s just so pretty!  My heels, which you can barely see peeping out from under the dress, coordinate beautifully with the rest of the outfit, and are also part of the hunt prize.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Melange !nc. shop, and locate the yellow school pencil concealed there.  Actually, there are two hunt objects hidden at the store, so you might be able to come away with a couple of outfits for just 10 Linden dollars each.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Venus
  • Ankle Wrap Heels for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

The pupster and I are off to see what other fabulous finds we can discover as we wander through the grid.  Until next time, happy hunting!

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
