Sweet Skater Girl

Sweet Skater

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I were enjoying the first snowfall in our last post, I decided to slip on some ice skates and glide across the frozen pond while I had the chance.  Ripley absolutely refused to step foot onto the slippery surface, and watched safely from the shore.  I put together my outfit for just 1 Linden dollar by combining a hunt prize and a free group gift, and I’m excited to tell you about it!

A Serendipitous Discovery

While I was at the Grumble store searching for the Snowflake sweater in the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt, I stumbled across a neatly folded shirt, which is the hunt object for the Hoarders of Second Life Hunt.  It was just 1 Linden dollar, so I scooped it up, and decided to take it home to open later.  I am so glad I picked it up on a whim, because the sweet Word Dress was tucked inside.  Featuring a thick knit, loose turtleneck collar, and open shoulders, this form-fitting frock could be worn solo for a cute indoor mini, but since I was outside, I opted to slip on some cozy leggings (more on those later).  Just in case Jolly Old Saint Nick is watching, I like how the word “Sweet” is emblazoned just below the collar.  Hey, it never hurts to remind Santa how nice I am!  😉 The smoky charcoal gray hue is subtle and would coordinate with a variety of colors.

Gotta Keep Warm!

Over at [west end] Apparel, I picked up a fat pack of cozy stockings designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body.  This free gift for members of the [west end] VIP group contains a HUD which allows you to select from 36 texture options, which range from solids to stripes.  There are so many times in the winter season that I want to wear a dress, but also need to keep my legs toasty warm, so I know for sure these stockings will come in handy!  To add this gift to your wardrobe, you need to be a member of the group, which does have a 299L join fee, but you will have access to monthly group gifts, a 50% discount for items that were past group gifts, as well as access to special sales for VIP members only.

‘Tis the Season for Gratitude

I’m off to bake a pumpkin pie for the big day tomorrow.  It will be Thanksgiving here in the US.  I have so many reasons to be thankful this holiday season, including my pal Ripley, my RL family, the Fab Free blogging team, close friends, and of course our Fabulous Readers.  Just in case I don’t get the chance to post again before the holiday, I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for YOU, dear readers.  Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, leave comments and likes.  I feel so blessed to have this opportunity!  Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!
