No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy haunting hunting!

Soon, It Will Be Slothoween!

It's Almost Slothoween

Hello there, Fab Free! With the new month, we have a bunch of hunts that got started, and I eagerly hit the trail of The Boo Bunny Hunt this week. My favorite prize of all is this adorable tank top. It makes me smile every time I see it, and I picked it up for just a small fee (plus a bit of time spent searching).

I’ll Do it Tomorrow…

…at least that’s what I imagine the sweet-faced critter on my new shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. might be saying as he gives us a friendly wave. The Slothoween Tee features a cute creature lounging atop a carved pumpkin, brightly colored autumn leaves, and a crescent moon in a star-filled sky. The vibrant colors really pop against the dark background! With its narrow shoulder straps and slightly cropped hem, I’d be grabbing a jacket in real life when wearing this top, but hey, this is SL, and it’s all good 🙂 The prize folder contains an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for a variety of mesh body types. Each item in The Boo Bunny Hunt costs one Linden dollar, and you’ll be searching for pieces of wrapped candy. You have until Slothoween, er I mean Halloween, to collect some amazing prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Life is Gourd

Jack O’Lanterns Shining Bright

Over at satus Inc., I found these Halloween Pumpkin Earrings that were the perfect accessory for my outfit as a free group gift. They come in gold, green, and red, and are sized for female and male avatars. While in the shop, I also picked up an older free group gift to round out my look – charcoal-colored Stella Leggings. Inside the folder, you’ll find sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body types. There is a 25 Linden dollar join fee for the satus Inc. group, but with thirty-two (yes thirty-two!) other group gifts, it’s well worth the price.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hiya, happy hump day 🙂 Slipping in a quickie, something to lounge in this weekend.

For The Boobs

Another year of the Rock Your Rack Event. (Oct.2,2021-Oct.17,2021) A most worthy cause I truly support. The event has live music, fashion shows, booths to shop, beautifully decorated areas. Plus a hunt, look for the black and pink hanger in the designer’s booth. All hangers can be bought for 10L each. 100% of the sales from the hangers go to charity. Jacx is modeling 2 items from the hunt. Starting with Alaskametro Starlet Lace Bodysuit,(sized for Omega Appliers, Tattoo Layer, System Top & Bottom Layer) in shocking pink for 10L. (psst while at the booth grab the free wearable testers for the lips.) Next up, you guessed it! Shoes. LOL. Gabrielle Hamelin has the sweetest pair of heels for 10L, the GH October Pink Heeled Bow Pumps, ticking all my boxes. Open toe, pink & gold flowers on the side, a dusting of gold on the back, black shoe body, and a black bow, and like the name says, a pink heel.  Included is a small hud with bow on/off, shine on/off.

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Kupra

  • Slink

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time,

It’s Time for Some Retail Therapy

Autumn Day

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  I decided to spend some time today exploring the Whispering Windz sim.  If you are looking for a lovely place to visit, I’d highly recommend taking a journey there yourself.  It has meandering paths that work their way through a beautiful fall landscape.  Before my idyllic afternoon, I picked up a couple of free gifts that I am excited to share with you.

But First, Lipstick

I decided to check out the 18th Round of MIIX Event this morning, and I’m so glad I did.  Right at the landing zone, there is a free gift set out for members of the Hype Events ::: News and Offers ::: group, which is free to join.  The Make Me Matte Lipstick Set from Opulein is compatible with Lelutka Evo and Evo X, Genus and Catwa HD Pro mesh heads.  It features two creamy shades, pink and taupe, in BOM appliers as well as a tattoo layer.   I opted for the blush-colored version, but either one will leave your lips looking lusciously soft.  I’ve included a close-up photo below so you can get a better view of this gorgeous makeup.  While you’re at the event location, you might want to tap the giveaway board for a chance to win a Lelutka or Furtacor gift card and Blogger Room access.  Good luck if you decide to enter!

‘Tis Bat Season

I am a kid at heart and look forward to October 31st every year, so I decided to get my Halloween vibe going a little early.  Over at Mister Razzor Body Shop, I joined the group for just 10L and picked up a free ear tattoo as a group gift.  It is comprised of a small cauldron of bats – or is it a colony?  I am not exactly sure, but I call it adorable!  Created exclusively for the Lelutka Evo X mesh head, this gift includes a 100 percent version as well as a lighter 75 percent option.  I love how it is playful the design is!

Lost in Thought

Weekend Sales

I always look forward to the 60L Happy Weekend Sale, which runs Saturday through Sunday.  With a very reasonable price tag of just 60 Linden dollars per item, you can pick up some wonderful additions to your SL wardrobe without breaking the bank.  Today, I scored the Jola Dress from Meva.  With ruffled short sleeves, a laced bodice, and a flirty hemline, this ebony frock is ideal for early fall, and I have to say, the color is perfect for October.  If you toss in a witch hat and broomstick, it could even double for a Halloween costume.  The folder includes versions for the standard and petite Maitreya mesh bodies.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Lara Petite

Over at [The Forge], I found another Happy Weekend offering for just 60 Linden dollars – a pair of over-the-knee stiletto style boots.  They look like they were tailor-made to coordinate with my new dress.  I really like the added detail of the golden buckles, which contrast beautifully with the buttery soft leather of the footwear.   Fortunately for me, my avatar has no problem maintaining her balance on the slender heels of these curve-hugging boots.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but you can also find the Hellen Boots in seventeen other colors (each sold separately).

Until next time, happy shopping!

Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Crisp Breeze and Dancing Leaves

Happy Last Day of September, Fabulous Readers!  The month flew by for me, and it’s hard to believe it will be October tomorrow.  Today’s post features a free camisole top that I opted to pair with a jacket because of the cooler fall temperatures.  That being said, I think it would also work well worn by itself or coupled with an overshirt.

Crisp and Clean

I love the contrasting hues in my outfit today.  If opposites are not your cup of tea, my new tank top from Arata Shouten will coordinate well with just about anything because you can easily edit the color.  The folder includes two options for the camisole, a white and a gray tint that you can customize by right-clicking and selecting edit.  After that, you’re limited only by the colors of the rainbow!  I decided to stick with a bright white, but the sky’s the limit.  Best of all, I picked it up for a grand total of zero Linden dollars and I didn’t need to join a group.  The top is BOM, so you have to have a mesh body with BOM enabled to be able to wear it.

Until next time, I wish you days full of crisp breezes and colorful dancing leaves.  🙂

Time Is Of The Essense

Jacx is spending a few minutes of alone time, making a list of the last-minute things to buy at Kaithleen’s 75L sale. Which will be ending in just a few days. So I wanted to slip in a fast post about a great pair of “go-to” jeans before time runs out. Kaithleen’s Skinny Stretch Jeans 75L per color, are hip-hugging, form-fitting jeans with a great chain belt with multi-color hud, also included is a sheer lace add-on top (not shown.)

The Red Shoes

No not the classic 1940’s ballerina film. Instead the cutest pair of red high-top sneakers ever. A new to me store [ADD] has as one of the group gifts these awesome Sneakers 2020 Promo. You will find several more GG’s with the shoes all for a 20L join fee. On a funny side note, Caroline also had a pair of red sneakers here. Maybe there is something about red sneakers this autumn.

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Until my next post,

All Those Stripes

All Those Stripes

It’s a good thing I’ve left the beach behind for this season (for now…) because I just couldn’t resist this bodysuit.  It’s completely impractical in every conceivable way, especially if you’re thinking of getting a tan at some point.  However, I just love it.  I love how impractical it is and how it shows several enticing expanses of skin without giving away the whole shebang!

She Does it Again

I told you yesterday about the new group gift at Kaithleen’s, but I neglected to mention the massive wall of new lucky boards.  There are so many, all of which contain one of Kaithleen’s signature sexy-classy looks.  I managed to win the Nagen Bodysuit, which I waxed poetic about just above.  The details are fantastic (check out those metal rings!) and the blush hue is just to die for.  If this isn’t your cup of tea, I’m sure you’ll find something else to tickle your fancy on the massive wall of lucky boards.  If you want in, all you have to do is join the Kaithleen’s group for 199L and wait for your letter to come up!

This Provincial Life

This Provincial Life

There’s something about this dress that makes me feel a bit like Belle in Beauty and the Beast.  Or perhaps a bit like Maria in the Sound of Music.  Either way, I’m about to twirl in a field and sing a ditty about hills being alive and the baker coming with his tray like always.   Are you feeling very twirl in a field too?  Well read on!

El Ducado

There’s a cool gift at the Ducado de Aliaga sim for members of the free to join group.  This gorgeous dress by Belle Epoque can be yours when you join said group (which is a Spanish-speaking RP group, in case you’re wondering!)  Worth a peek, and the dress (sized for Maitreya) is totally worth the visit!

See you in the fields!
