Aim For Wow

Aim For Wow 1

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I continued our journey along The Flowerage Hunt 2’s prize trail.  Even though he suffered some nasty scratches after our encounter with the clowder of felines (you can read about that adventure {HERE}), Ripley’s talented nose was still able to sniff out the female hunt gift at Sparrow by Design.   Hooray for tracking dogs! Sparrow by Design’s generous designer didn’t leave out the guys in The Flowerage Hunt 2.  Carson blogged the male gift in his post {HERE}.

Sunshine On My Shoulders

The Emily dress features a halter-style neckline, and a pretty blue and green floral print splashed across a white background.  Its dark belt calls attention to your slender waistline, and a silver metal ring adds a pop of shine.  This summery frock left my shoulders free to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine, while the loop around my neck made sure the sleeveless dress stayed in place.  This little number is perfect for an afternoon of shopping, but with the right accessories, it is easily glammed up for a date night.  One nice feature is that the gift package includes a white, cropped, quilted jacket that you could add when the sun starts to set, and the air becomes a bit chilly.  Since it was a lovely, warm spring day, I opted not to wear it for my photo shoot, but I was comforted in knowing it was there should I need it.

The Wow Factor

My Catwa mesh head applier is the May gift for members of the Wow Skins group.  With beautifully arched, dark eyebrows, and a clear, fresh complexion, this skin is flawless, and lovely.  A HUD with 6 shades ranging from Milk to Caffe’ is included.  I chose the Tan shade, and I just love the sweet, glowing finish on this skin.  I experimented with eyeliner and lipstick appliers, and had terrific success, so if you are looking for a date-ready appearance, this applier works well with added make up for a glamorous touch.  (In my pictures, I am wearing no make up).  The WOW group costs 450L to join, but if you are already a member, I’d highly encourage you to scoop up this stunning group gift.

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend.  Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.  Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine, strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans.  The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline.  Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning.  Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground.  The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose.  Poor Ripley!  So much for trying to be helpful!  As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign.  “It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick.  He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Just a Country Girl at Heart

A Trio of Puppies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I just finished opening the hunt gifts which Ripley and I had scoped out at the Country Girl Hunt currently running at Brii Underground, and when I saw this floral dress, I knew I had to blog it!   The event runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to head on over and do some searching for yourself.  With 10 complete outfits, all for 1L each, you won’t want to miss this hunt!

A Bohemian Country Girl

With three-quarter-length sleeves, and a skirt that falls to mid-thigh, the Lucineide dress keeps you modestly covered, but still allows a sexy glimpse of skin at your midsection.  The cheerful botannical print is complemented by purple trim, which coordinates beautifully with the boots tucked inside the prize package.  I really liked the way the skirt is softly draped. Although this frock is a perfect country-style dress with the included bandana and cowgirl hat, I decided to accessorize instead with hair beads and Gypsy bangles to create a boho-chic flair.  I was really happy with the final look.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, and L
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Boots
  • Cowgirl hat
  • Bandana
  • Sunglasses
  • Omega applier for Lucineide make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light

Kat is wearing:

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Kathy (bento)

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Moirah

Eyeliner:  Yokami Cat Eyeliner

Lipstick Applier:  Izzie’s Catwa Lipstick Applier (Aiko)

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Hair:  Magika Stay the Night

Hair Beads:  EarthStones Hemp Hair Beads – Head Wrap in Sizzle

Dress and Boots:  Brii Underground Lucineide Country Style Complete Outfit (hunt prize in Country Girl Hunt – 1L)

Bracelet:  EarthStones Tarnished Gypsy Bangles in Silver Flame

Puppies:  Glamour Poses Female 05 (I added the puppies, but did not use the pose) 35L on the Marketplace

Pose:  Le Poppycock

Just a Girl and Her Horse

A Girl and Her Horse
Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued to work our way through the Country Girl Hunt at Brii Underground, and we discovered the stylish Fabiola outfit.  Just like the Keli dress I showed {HERE} yesterday, this hunt gift will deck you out from head to toe…all for only 1 little Linden dollar.  I love the combination of turquoise and brown, especially on the embroidered vest, which offers a sexy peek at the skin on my midriff.  Snug fitting jean shorts emphasize the length of my legs and hug every curve, while the dangling strands of the belt offer a playful bit of movement.  The feathered cowgirl hat coordinates perfectly with the colors of the vest, and offers a welcome respite from the rays of the sun.  Polished brown boots with silver adornments finish off the look.  This rancher is ready to lead her horse to water….. in style!

What’s Included:

  • Fabiola Vest in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Fabiola Shorts in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layers for classic avatars
  • Maitreya Applier for Tights and Gloves (I left my hands bare)
  • Omega Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Slink Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Omega Applier for Fabiola Make Up – Catwa Head (not shown)
  • Make Up Tattoo layer for classic avatars
  • Fabiola Hat
  • Fabiola Scarf (not shown)
  • Fabiola Boots
  • Fabiola Belt
  • Optional Light (not shown)

All ten of the dollarbie gifts in this hunt are up for grabs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own.  With Ripley’s talented nose, and the hints available by clicking the hunt sign in the Brii Underground store, locating all the rearing horses really didn’t take too long at all.  Since each package contains a complete outfit, you will come away with a versatile wardrobe perfect for a day on the farm, or a day of casual shopping.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

The Meadow is Calling

The Meadow is Calling

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness today, and did some sleuthing in the Country Girl Hunt over at Brii Underground.  There are ten prizes up for grabs in this event, and each costs just one little linden dollar. The boxes even include accessories such as hats and footwear.

A Country Girl at Heart

The Keli dress is a charming shade of blue, and includes the ribboned hat, dress, and boots shown in my picture.  I love the white floral pattern sprinkled across the sleeveless frock, and the way it leaves my arms bare to soak up some sun.  The bow tied at the waistline echoes the ribbon on the hat, and provides a visual contrast to the remainder of the dress.  Blue, slouchy, high heeled boots, and thick, white socks round out the look, providing you with a complete ensemble from the crown of your head to the tips of your toes.  The package also contains Keli make up (not shown), an Omega Applier for the make up, and optional lights.  What a great bargain!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Time to Continue the Round Up

Each of the ten hunt gifts is concealed in a small, brown, rearing horse.  If you click the hunt display on the wall at Brii Underground, you will receive a note card with helpful hints for tracking down the prizes.  With 9 more ponies to corral, Ripley and I had better get a move on.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

The Easter Egg Hunt at Petite Mort

Snapshot_005

Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t already heard, Petite Mort’s Easter Egg Hunt started today! Love and I had fun with this fantastic hunt last year, so we were both thrilled to hear it was happening again this year. Talk about the perfect opportunity to amp up your spring/summer wardrobe with seriously cute items from Petite Mort. Love and I also took the opportunity to spend an afternoon catching up while trying on all our pretty new clothes. There may or may not have been a little girl gossip going on as well. I’d tell you what Love said to get me to make that face, but it’s  not the sort of thing a lady should repeat! Snapshot_001

Each egg is just 10 lindens each, and there are 7 total eggs to find at the Petite Mort main location. Just outside the shop is a sign with information about the hunt, including a prize key.  Also, there’s a little rabbit near the sign who will gladly gift you an Easter basket to carry while you hunt!  The Petite Mort Easter Egg Hunt will last from today until April 30th. Happy Hunting!

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I did some more sleuthing, and have another hunt item to share with you today.  Serendipity has hidden Alexandra, this gorgeous, formal gown as their prize for The Best of You Hunt.  Featuring shimmering black fabric, gleaming decorative trim, and a daring leg slit, this full length frock is sure to draw all eyes your way as you enter the room.  I especially love the criss-cross straps on the back, which allow for a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   It’s so elegant, yet full of sex appeal.  Best of all, you’ll only have to part with one little Linden dollar to add Alexandra to  your inventory.

Seek and You Will Find

photo_006

Hello there Fabulouses!  When I saw Carson’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}about the What’s Your Category Hunt, I decided to check out the female prizes up for grabs.  Ripley and I teleported over to  Ambient Fashion, and although it took some determination and many trips around the store to locate the hunt icon, the Cassandra shirt was well worth our investment of time and one little linden dollar.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

When I first attempted to locate the small black bag tied with a red ribbon, I just couldn’t find it.  I wandered throughout the store, upstairs and downstairs, and after quite some time, I gave up in frustration.  However, later while looking at the hunt prizes on the preview page, my eyes were drawn over and over to the knotted Cassandra top.  I loved the raspberry and purple tones, and became determined to add the long sleeved shirt to my inventory.  So….I returned to Ambient and searched again.  I’m so glad I did!  The satiny texture of the fabric, the realistic folds, and the dangling ties all combine to make the perfect casual cropped top and, at only 1 little Linden dollar, the price was just right!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Applier for Isis, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus

That Look in His Eye

As I put the finishing touches on this blog post, a certain canine someone tapped my leg with his paw, and stared longingly at his tracking harness.  I think he is enjoying the challenge of tracking down hunt gifts to share with our readers.  We’ll hit the trail again, and hopefully be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Wrapped in a Warm Glow

Embrace Your Inner Orange
Hello Fabulouses! Feeling quite lucky after our last two finds in Brii Underground’s 1L Surf Girl Hunt, Ripley and I returned once more to see what else we could uncover. Thanks to the pupster’s talented nose, we came away with yet another complete outfit. Big grin!

Orange is the Happiest Color

Inside the clam shell, I discovered the bright, cheerful Lina outfit.  With a handkerchief-style, sleeveless crop top and shorts in the same vibrant pattern, this jaunty outfit is sure to leave you with lighthearted spirits and a bounce in your step.  Coordinating sandals for slink flat feet in a matching orange tone complete the look.  I love the batik print and found this ensemble perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  One added plus is that the appliers for the top and shorts are separate, which allows for the possibility of mixing and matching to create additional combinations.

Orange is the Happiest Color

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh shorts and top appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Fitmesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha Layers for classic avatars
  • Sandals for flat feet in a perfectly coordinating shade

Still Plenty of Time

The Surf Girl Hunt at Brii Underground runs through February 28th, so you still have have plenty of time to scoop up some complete outfits for yourself for only 1L each.  All the prizes Ripley and I ferreted out in this hunt were fabulous, and the shells were really not that difficult to locate.  I highly encourage you to head on over to Brii Underground and do some sleuthing yourself.   You won’t be disappointed!  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

High Tides And Good Vibes

High Tides n Good Vibes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  After my last post {HERE}, Ripley and I returned to Brii Underground’s Surf Girl Hunt and did some more sleuthing.  As a youngster, I loved collecting seashells, and this hunt revived childhood memories of trips to the shore with my family.  Under my parents’ watchful eyes, I would traipse up and down the beach, plastic pail in hand, gathering my briny “treasures.”

A Casual Outfit You Will Treasure

After I pried open the clam shell from Brii Underground, I uncovered the Leidiane Beach Outfit, which was perfect for a day of beach combing.  A pair of denim shorts and an island themed, cropped t-shirt, complete with palm trees, gulls, and crashing waves form the basis of the costume.  To ward off the brisk ocean breezes, a dark blue, plaid over shirt completes the look.  This is definitely the type of clothing I would choose for a weekend get away in real life – comfortable and carefree.  Since I have a habit of wading out into the water to gather the perfect mollusk for my collection, I chose to slip on flip flops rather than the light blue platform sneakers which are part of the hunt gift.  For only 1 little Linden dollar, you get a complete look packed inside that tiny shell!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh outfits for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Leidiane Platform Sneakers (not shown)
  • Omega applier with make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light (not shown)

Sadly, those precious days with my parents are now only in the past.  Lost in memories and nostalgia as I listened to the crashing ocean waves, I was glad to have my loyal pupster by my side.  When I am feeling blue, there is no greater comfort than the silent, devoted companionship of my sweet boy.  Until my next post, fabulous readers, happy shopping hunting!
