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.

Aim For WOW 2

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!
