“Adda” Boy, You Found My Heart!

Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly tonight to share a budget-friendly hunt gift with you.  Le’La Design is hosting a Valentine’s Day Hunt that runs until February 28th.  Scattered throughout the store are small red hearts, which are priced at just 5L each.  I dusted off the pupster’s tracking harness, and sure enough, his talented nose didn’t let me down!  Almost before I knew it, I was unboxing the bounty.  My crimson frock is one of the ten hunt prizes concealed in the shop.  The Adda Dress features an asymmetrical hemline and a one shoulder bodice style (with my hair style you can’t really see my bare right shoulder) that is really quite fun.  A wide, sequined sash emphasizes your waistline, and the skirt is generously cut for freedom of movement.  Overall, it’s a really pretty, feminine style dress that will become a warm weather favorite of mine.

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Venus
  • Ebody

Unboxing Boxing Day

Unboxing Boxing Day

Hey Fab Free!

It’s Boxing Day!  Well, it is here in Canada… Celebrate with me!  Although we don’t actually do anything for Boxing day other than shop for deals and eat lots of leftovers, I feel like this should become a super special day.  It’s a day on which I have UN-BOXED lots of fun stuff – here we go!

Peace On Earth Wrap Up

I’m rushing to get as much out of the Peace on Earth hunt as I can before it wraps up at the end of the month!  I toddled over to Luziefee and found the little globe.  Within it lay this sweet babydoll dress that I think can be used for a myriad of occasions. It comes in black, gold, red and silver and in sizes from XS to XL with an Alpha included.  Adorable AND free!

Heels for Me!

I kept unboxing on my Boxing Day extravaganza, and out popped this super group gift from CandyDoll!  The heels come with an HUD to change the colour to your heart’s content, and seriously, how much do you love those pompoms?  I can’t even.  They come sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  The CandyDoll group is free to join at this time, making these shoes completely free!

Cheers!

All this unboxing has me needing a pick-me up.  Seeing as it’s Boxing Day, I went to Lootbox and played the Nani & Eliavah gacha which costs 75L.  Out popped this classy martini glass, which is just what the doctor ordered.

Happy Boxing Day, friends!  What’s in your boxes?

I’m in the Mood for Blueberries and Cherry Blossoms

Fox in the Snow

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a free group gift and another budget-friendly hunt prize with you.  They pair together well to create a simple, casual, and very comfortable outfit.

Adorned With Twin Bows

First, my adorable long sleeved top from Blueberry features a pair of texture change laces that add a whimsical touch.  You can opt to coordinate them with one of the 35 color choices for the top, or select a contrasting option.  You can even adjust the metal of the eyelets, too.  With so many hues available, this top is sure to become a wardrobe favorite of mine!  To pick up this free group gift for yourself, all you need to do is head over to the shop, activate the Blueberry Store Group tag (20L join fee) and tap the vendor.  With other gifts available for members, your 20L investment will be well worth while.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Cozy Leggings

A prize in the Dear Santa Hunt, I picked up my crimson leggings at Cherry’s Blossom for just one Linden dollar.  They hugged my every curve and fit my Maitreya mesh body beautifully.  An all-over muted pattern provided visual interest, and the fabric had a slight sheen to it.  I could see wearing these under a sweater dress for extra warmth on a winter day.  To add the Cozy Leggings to your inventory, search the shop until you locate the hunt object, which is a letter to Santa.  After that, it’s just a matter of paying the teensy fee, and then scurrying home to open up the box.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a good start.  I don’t know about you, but I am counting the days until my holiday break.  I’m looking forward to having some extra time to spend relaxing with my family, and of course, looking for more Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Skate Like Nobody’s Watching

Poised

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  After Ripley and I left the La Vie sim yesterday, we decided to try our luck on the Peace On Earth Hunt, and made our way over to the OMG! Inc. store.  There, the pupster’s talented nose discovered the hidden snowflake which contained the free Skater Dress I’m wearing in my picture.  This fun and flirty outfit inspired a trip to an ice covered pond at Moonchuck Winter Wonderland for a late afternoon glide across the frozen water.  With sizes for classic as well as popular mesh avatars, you’re sure to find a fit for you!  The prize package includes a texture change HUD with 5 options to choose from.  I love the way the knotted top offers a sexy peek at my mid section.  With the generously flared skirt, your avatar will have plenty of freedom for your finest figure skating moves!  Best of all, you can pick up a copy for yourself for just a small investment of time.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley, his pals and I are all waiting (a bit impatiently) for this bakery to open.  While we were out walking on the Oh Deer sim, we spied these tasty treats through the display window.  After a long, hard week at work, a girl and her pup deserve a sweet treat, don’t you think? 😉

Dear Santa…

The pup and I had built up an appetite as we made our along the Dear Santa Hunt trail.  It was well worth it because I scooped up this Ruffled Crop Top and Mini Skirt from Magnolia Designs for just one Linden dollar.  The lace trim along the edge adds the prettiest feminine touch, and I love the cheerful red and white print!  A pair of cute Mary Jane heels with knee high white stockings, complete with a bow and jingle bell are also tucked in the box, but are not showing in this shot.  The Dear Santa Hunt features two hunt prims at each store – one costs 25L and the other 1L, so if you are short on time, you can just pay the 25L fee and pick up the outfit immediately.  If you’re like me, and you are saving your Linden dollars for holiday gifts (yes, pal, that includes Ripley Snacks), you can invest some time and locate the 1L prim.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

I Hear Keys Jingling!

Yay!  Here comes the baker now…….  After we gobble down some goodies err…pick up some delicious bakery items, Ripley and I will head out to locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

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!

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!

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!

Replenishing Pixie Powers

Reindeer Princess

Hello Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I were out wandering the grid, my canine pal froze, pricked up his ears, tilted his head, then took off running.  Barely managing to keep him in my field of vision, I trailed behind, wondering what in the world had gotten into the pupster this time.  Out of breath, I finally caught up to Rip at the Pennycat sim, where I found him offering a comforting paw to a downcast pixie.  She and the other magical creatures on the sim explained that the Great Pixie of Winter had been weakened in a battle with the Demon of the Sun.  By collecting snowflakes and returning them to the Pixie of Night Snow, we could help the Great Pixie of Winter to recover all three of her powers.  It seemed a simple enough task, and with the promise of some lovely hunt prizes, Ripley and I set to work collecting snowflakes for the Pixies of Snow Hunt.  In just a short amount of time, we were victorious in our mission, and gathered our hunt prizes.  Two of them are featured in tonight’s post.

Reindeer Princess

My gorgeous crimson and white gown set the theme for the outfit I put together for my photo today.  The Aurora Princess Dress is a free gift from Shanti for members of the Shanti Bohemian Shop group.  This stunning strapless dress features a red bodice with contrasting white stitching, and a full paneled, floor length skirt.  In the chilly early winter air, I was grateful for the coordinating wrap draped around my shoulders.   The gift box includes mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL and an alpha layer for classic avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport to the shop, activate the group tag (50L join fee) and click the vendor.  The generous designer set out other gifts out for group members, too.

Myster Owl

A “Crown” Atop My Head and a New Found Friend

The free prize box from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions awarded at the conclusion of the Pixies of Snow Hunt contained two fun accessories to complete my outfit.  Sitting atop my head, the free Winter Stag Antlers added a touch of whimsy and holiday spirit to my otherwise formal attire.  The pale gray color scheme worked well with the winter white sections of my gown.  Every princess needs a trusted advisor or two, and Mr. Wyse, my free shoulder pet (also from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions)  fit the bill perfectly.  He is just so cute, and is already fast friends with Ripley.  The best part in Ripley’s opinion…. he doesn’t care to munch on Ripley snacks!

More Boxes to Unpack…

I still have more packages to open and hunt prizes to sort through.  It almost looks like Christmas came early to my little homestead.  I think there’s a very good chance Ripley and I will be back soon with another Pixie gift or two.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
