A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

In Her Eyes 2

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

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

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

A Spring Day at the Shore

Spring Day at the Shore

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are enjoying our weekend get away to Maison de l’amitie!  We’ve been spending our days lazing on the beach, watching sailboats zigzag across the harbor, while seagulls circle overhead.  I could definitely get used to this!

I Like Vintage…..a Lot!

My worn and comfy vintage jeans capris today are a free gift for Third Life group members from the Red Room.  Although joining the Third Life group will set you back 10L, there are multiple gifts around the grid from a variety of designers for lucky group members, so it’s a worthwhile investment.  With a soft, faded denim that hugs every curve, rolled cuffs and a belted waistline, these pants are perfect for a casual day at the beach.  In addition to the gray-blue denim version, the capris also come with a texture change HUD for the fabric and belt, offering a range of possible combinations.  The gentle hue and frayed areas of the jeans complemented my white lace-trimmed Ivy cami from Pretty Please.  With a budget-friendly price tag of only 65L, this cute, feminine top is sure to become a summer time favorite.  I couldn’t resist scooping up the cami in several other pastel shades as well.  Together, these two vintage finds created the perfect outfit for a lovely spring day on the beach with my pal.

Sizes and Compatibility:

Capris:  Freya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Maitreya, and Isis

Top:  Shirt and Undershirt layer for classic avatars, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega

There Goes the E.B.!

As the Easter Bunny completed his last minute deliveries, he paused and waved, twitching his cute little nose in our direction.  I couldn’t resist pointing him out to Ripley.  This adorable pose is perfect for alerting my pal to the E.B.’s presence, as well as for featuring the Bento hands that are part of my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 50L at the Reve Obscura Marketplace store, you’ll get the pose as well as an adorable mesh dog (in case you don’t have an ever-present canine companion like I do).  I love the way “Spring Day” reflects that special relationship between a girl and her BFF!

Leaving It All Behind

Leave It All Behind

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  After the hectic week I’ve had in RL, it’s time for a get away in SL.  I packed all the essentials (yes, Ripley, even your goodies!), and we loaded up the car with just a few pieces of luggage.  The small one on the left is packed to the brim with Ripley snacks, which made for a very happy pup, indeed.  We filled ‘er up, and headed over to Maison de l’amitie for the holiday weekend.

Fabulous and Free

My free, strapless mini is the latest gift from Satus Inc. for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Alisa Aviator dress hugs all your curves and ends with a slightly flared skirt just above mid-thigh length.  I like the soft sheen of the leather, and the contrast of the texture used on the sides of the bodice.  To add Alisa to your inventory for free, simply activate your Fab Free tag, teleport over to Satus Inc., then click the display.

What’s Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Aurora

Fifty Lindens for a Short Time

My loosely braided, sideswept hairstyle is available today at Wasabi Pills for only 50L as part of Fifty Linden Friday.  Aurora includes the special HUD loaded with 6 textures with roots and non-roots versions for each, plus black hair.  It includes side wisps on the left, the perfect length to frame your face.  If you’d like to add Aurora to your inventory for the extra low FLF price, be sure to pop on over to Wasabi Pills before the promo ends with the arrival of Saturday morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Until next time, happy shopping!

Stopping for a Cuppa

coffee 2_001

Always a hot… hunt.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is one of my favorite hunts. I always love surfing through my inventory after a few stops along the trail. I happened to pick a stop – Mimi’s Choice to be exact – and head home to unpack and was thrilled with the beautiful form fitting flowery gown I unpacked.

This dress nice enough for a date night out, but casual enough for coffee at a cafe. It’s sure to be perfect for any occasion, and it includes all the popular sizes such as:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza

Shoes make a match.

If you hurry, the [MUSE] and NSP Florals March group gift is still out. It’s a lovely gift well worth picking up. You surely must have noticed my gorgeous shoes! These hipster wedges fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza Feet, and include a color change hud with 6 different colors to match your outfits. Hurry! With March being over, I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be out to pick up!

In the Forest of My Dreams

Meet Me At Midnight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  At the Mystical Fae Forest, Ripley and I found an enchanted harp surrounded by softly glowing candles.  As we stepped closer, the wind began to pluck the strings, playing a lovely, haunting tune.  The pupster and I stood entranced as even the local reindeer paused, and tilted their heads to listen to the melody.  It was a magical night in a forest of dreams.

A Fabulous Frock for a Legendary Evening

Emma is the latest free group gift from Legendaire.  With a solid-colored bodice and hem, accented with bright swirls of paisley, this maxi dress is slender at the waist to emphasize my figure, but ends with a comfortably loose, slightly ruffled skirt.   Narrow straps left my shoulders free to feel the caress of moonlight on my skin.  The gift box includes a HUD which offers a choice of 3 textures.  I was torn between the dark blue and magenta floral swirls, a bold black and white pattern with pops of pale teal, and this red, white and teal paisley pattern.  Every one of the options was equally appealing.  Although joining the Legendaire group will set you back 99L, there is an entire wall in the shop packed with 12 group gifts, all free for members.  A teleporter on the floor will whisk you off to a plethora of other outfits also set out free for group members.  I considered 99L a fair investment for so many generous gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Emma HUD with 3 texture options
  • Emma flats (not shown)

All Good Things Come to an End

As the clock approached midnight, my canine Prince Charming nudged my hand, breaking the spell, and reminding me that this Cinderella has to get up bright and early for RL work tomorrow.  Bidding the reindeer and the spellbinding harp farewell, Ripley and I journeyed home.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you magical encounters, and happy shopping!

A Little Bird Said…

  • Appliers for:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Wowmeh mesh bodies
  • Universal Omega Applier (top, bra, pants, undies)

Until next time my friends, happy shopping!

Spring Flowers

Flower Power_001

April Showers…

… bring flowers! Even if it’s not yet May. 🙂 I picked up the March Group gift from Glitterati which was recently set out for us to enjoy and just fell in love! This pretty flower dress in a tunic style with side-slit sleeves is simply beautiful! You’ll get standard mesh sizes XS – XL plus a quality alpha layer and a system layer thong in black silk and lace (though I just donned a pair of my Maitreya panties).

The group fee for Glitterati is 100L, but there are many past group gifts still available for you to pick up, making it well worth joining and nabbing your tag to pick up this gift (and the past gifts too). Don’t miss out!

Flower Power_003

A perfect match!

The Springtacious Cart Wash Sale is still going strong, and I found the perfect shoes to match my dress at the Battle Fairy Cart! These Dahlia Heels in butterscotch have beautiful details of flowers on them and for just 10L you get shoes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza in one box! These shoes come in 8 colors, all for just 10L each. As pretty as they are, you will probably want to pick up more than one pair.

The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

Gorgeous on a Gray Day

Photo 23

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I discovered another Fabulous Find at The Cart Wash sale to share with you.  I scooped up my strappy Beautiful Gray Day dress for only 10L at the Emerald Couture stand.  This knee-length frock offers a figure hugging fit that ends with a ruffled hem.  It features a light gray background topped with a delicate floral pattern.  With a variety of sizes and mesh body options, this budget-friendly dress is sure to fit your avatar.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Body Compatibility:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass
  • Gray Day Shoes (not shown in picture)

Half Off?  Count Me In!

Although this amazing sale doesn’t quite drop the price to the 75L mark, I did want to pass along the news of the 50 percent off sale over at Exile.  All in-world styles, except Gatchas, are marked half off until April 7th.  As soon as I read the note card announcing the special offer, I clicked the teleport button, only to see the dreaded “Region is full” message.  I persisted, and finally after multiple attempts, arrived.  I picked up several new hairdo’s, including the Class Act style featured above.  For only 125L, you can purchase regular color packs, fusion packs for 140L, and the All or Nothing pack for 625L.  It was well worth the effort required to enter the sim!

Those Extra Little Touches

At the Rispetto Designs cart at The Wash, I picked up these glossy, dark gray Amour Signature Shawnda earrings for only 10 little Linden dollars.  They coordinated perfectly with the hue of the roses scattered across my dress.  The triple hoop design provided just the right amount of bling to complement my outfit.

Treat Yourself…

… to a little retail therapy.  This round of The Cart Wash is absolutely packed with bargains galore, and I hope you get a chance to teleport over to the Wash and check out all the booths for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
