Basking in the Desert Sun

Desert Sunlight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are still wandering around the grid doing our best to avoid winter.  Today, we traveled to the beautiful southwestern landscape over at Villa Baldeney.  One of my favorite aspects of the desert is the brilliance of the sunshine and the warmth in the air… (although I will probably deny this in the summertime!).  The adorable cropped top that I am wearing in my photo does a fantastic job of reflecting the light, AND it’s a free gift as well!

All Wrapped Up

I think you probably have already figured out how much I like the Kali Top from American Bazaar.  With its open back and sexy wrapped style, this little number is just right for catching some rays.  The shimmering texture and curve-hugging design of this free group gift flatter your figure, and the dark shade will coordinate with a variety of bottoms.  I chose long jeans, but could also see pairing the top with shorts, capris or even a skirt.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the American Bazaar Fashion Group, but with a join fee of zero Linden dollars, it’s completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Hmmm, I see a vulture circling overhead.  Perhaps it’s time for Ripley and I to resume our rambling journey across the warmer weather sims in SL before that bird gets any ideas.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! 🙂

As you can see, Gavin has already started his holiday weekend at the beach. Hopefully, he saved a spot for me because after this week I’m really ready to relax!

Fifty Linden Friday Finds for Guys!

Watch Out

“Hey, Serena? I’ve been calling you all morning. Where are you? I thought you wanted me to bring you some lunch today? Oh well, call me.”

Awww, poor Gavin. I forgot to tell him that I was feeling better and decided to take Fergus out for a ride this morning, lol! 😳

FLF for Guys

But everything worked out since Gavin was able to do a little Fifty Linden Friday shopping!

Starting at the top: Gavin scored with some great hair from Wasabi. The Marcus hair comes in a special pack of 7 colors, with and without roots. The hair is resizeable and even comes with a smaller version for the ladies.

Gavin’s sweater is a FLF deal from Etham. The Julian Turtleneck comes in blue or gray and is sized for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

There are some really nice Fifty Linden Friday finds out for the fellas today, so be sure to grab them before midnight SLT tonight!

Free Jeans

Gavin also managed to find a pair of free jeans! The Worn Denim Jeans by Apple May Designs are a free gift at The Free Dove.

The jeans come in sizes XS-L with an alpha layer, but they work fine on Gavin’s Slink mesh body.

There is also a version for the ladies in the box!

Guess I’d better give Gavin a call so he can bring me some dinner. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Back to the Beach!

Sunshine in My Pocket

Hello again, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I had so much fun on Monday, we decided to return to the shore for some more R&R.  I packed a bag with sunscreen, a towel, a magazine and, of course, Ripley snacks, then we headed off to one of our favorite sims – NorderNey.

Flirty and Free

I slipped on the latest free Fabulously Free in SL group gift from BlackRose before leaving home.  Bold and bright, with a white, black and dark teal color scheme, this strappy mini dress was perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  Its figure-hugging form will flatter any avatar, for sure.  I liked how the vertical stripes of dark teal at the bodice provided a touch of contrast to the otherwise horizontal bands of color, and directed the eye upward.  With plenty of versions for mesh bodies, plus mesh sizes for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you.

What’s Included:

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

The Beach is Calling Me and I Must Go

Here’s hoping you can carve out a little time for some rest and relaxation for yourself this week.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

Peace on Earth for the Fellas

Blogging soon!

There’s still plenty of time to pick up those Peace on Earth Hunt gifts (POE6)! Gavin’s jacket, shirt, and tie are the POE6 gifts from B&W Designs. Hopefully you can see the detailing in the leather because it looks pretty awesome! His hat and hair is the POE6 gift from ChiChickie!, which includes a HUD so you can change the hair color and hat texture.

Just a note about Gavin’s new skin: 7 Deadly s{K}ins has recently started making men’s skins, and has partially released a new line called Judas. The tone he’s wearing here has freckles, which I thought was rather unique for a men’s skin. Check ’em out if you’re looking for something different! 🙂

Mr. Autumn

Blogging soon

I’m out at Central Perk this afternoon for a little coffee and autumn sunshine, and I thought I’d do a quick post before my caffeine buzz wears off. I’m wearing the Mr. Autumn jacket, sweater, and shirt combo by Coepio. This item is one-piece mesh, and comes with sweaters in brown, gray, or black. The Coepio group is free to join, and there are quite a few other gifts for men available. My wing tips are a new-ish group gift from ::GABRIEL::. Again, lots of great gifts are available at ::GABRIEL::, so if you’re a new resident, or an old one who hasn’t been over in a while, be sure to check them out!

Little Buddy

This cute, little guy was out wandering around here on the DERAILED sim, and was nice enough to pose for a picture with me. If he follows me home, can I keep him?

Blogging soon!

My outfit is the November group gift from Sin Original, which includes the jeans, sweater, and jacket. There is also a gift for the ladies, which Love showed here. The gift includes a pair of shoes, but instead I decided to wear these great Men’s Work Boots, which are a free gift from =MODA= at The Rockabilly Fashion Fair (TRFF). Did I mention that this is a FATPACK of boots, and you get 5 different colors in the box? AND there is also a gift for women? 😀 The Rockabilly Fashion Fair continues until November 23rd, so don’t miss out!

Oh, my skin is a group gift from Belleza. It has has been around for a while, and shown here several times. But it’s still a great skin, and still available. Also not new, but still free, is my texture-change scarf by Mr. Poet. 10 different colors are included.

Friday Guy Day: Falling Into Autumn

Happy Friday! Today I bring you gifts from the Falling Into Autumn Hunt. All gifts are 0L, and the hunt lasts until October 21, 2013.

Blogging soon

First up is my awesome mesh sweater, which is the FIAH gift from [American Bazaar]. Let me tell you, the knit textures are on this one are amazing. Next, my shoes are the FIAH gift from Shoenique Designs; there is also a pair of ladies boots in the box. My eyes are the group gift from IKON (already shown by Serena and Xanthe), and are still available! My jeans are not free, but are a new release from FATEwear. They’re Materials Enhanced, and come in 3 different “hip heights” so you can wear them as high or low as you like. 😎

BTW, if you want to see a gorgeous display of SL autumn, head over to The Trace. Beautiful place to take pictures or just to wander.

Beachin’ It

hudsons_may5_001f

In observance of Memorial Day, it’s a long weekend here in the U.S. And let me tell you, this extra day off couldn’t have come at a better time! I intend to relax and not do one useful thing today! 🙂 I’ve headed out to the beach in this comfy, Summer Tropics Watermelon dress and hat, the May group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co. (free to join). These texture-change sunglasses are a free gift from SteinWerk, and my over-sized beach bag is only 10L from Kakia Designs. It also comes with a lipstick and compact, in case you need to do a little touching up after a day of fun in the sun.

I’m really loving this new skin: Irene, the latest release from Izzie’s. This special version is currently featured at The Dressing Room Fusion for 70L, with a choice of three eyebrow colors. My jewelry, a free group gift from Miel, has been around for a while and shown many times here at FabFree, but I still like it because it’s so versatile. Both the beads and strings are texture-changing, so you can match them to just about anything. My hair was a holiday group gift from LeLutka, but I’m happy to report that you can still pick it up for free in the store. 8 different colors and a hat are included in the box. 🙂
