A New Gift on the Horizon

Ever Wonder Where You'd End Up If You Took Your Dog For a Walk and Never Pulled Back On The Leash?

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  I borrowed the pupster and his tracking harness to see if he and I could round up a budget friendly hunt gift or two on the trail of the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and the old guy didn’t let me down.  I’ll have to give her a quick jingle to see if she finished baking that fresh batch of Ripley snacks…

For Those Warm Days When She Wants  You to Walk the Dog

At Horr Menswear, our very first stop, we scored the Duvall shirt I am wearing in my photo.  It’s a tied-around-the-waist model only, but with today’s warm sunshine, I didn’t mind.  Plus, it gave me a chance to show off my new tattoo (more on that in a moment).  The hunt package costs 1 Linden dollar, and includes classic mesh and versions for several mesh bodies.   I really like the plaid pattern, and I’m looking forward to wearing it often in the near future.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha necessary)
  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

Get Inked!

My new tattoos are a free group gift for members of the Teleport Hub group, courtesy of Angel’s Design.  The Horizon tattoo features a sinuous design down both arms, a tribal style face on the left pec, a skull on the abs, and three more large designs up and down the back.  The box includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP,  as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars.  Joining the Teleport Hub group will set you back 10L, but that opens up a multitude of free gifts around the grid.  I’m not sure how long this item will be available, so if you like these tats as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop soon to pick up a copy for yourself.

I’d better get Ripley back home so he can enjoy his well-deserved reward.  Until next time, so long!

Just Another Rainy Day

Let it Rain

“We’re almost out of dog food,” she sighed.  “Would you be a good sport and run out to pick some up?”  Since she was making home made chicken noodle soup (from scratch), and the big guy stared at me with pleading chocolate brown eyes, what else could I do?  A man and his pal (ok, ok HER pal) have got to eat!  I suddenly found myself trudging through the downpour on my way to the pet food warehouse.  Not how I planned to spend my Sunday morning, but I can’t resist either one of them!

That Turned Up Collar

Lucky for me, I had the new Stand Collar Jacket from Gabriel to protect me from the downpour.  Its thick fabric repelled the deluge, while its large collar prevented the rain from soaking into my shirt.  With sturdy buckles, a generous cut, and full length sleeves, there is no way that damp wind is going to work its way through.  Right now, this overcoat is available for just 1L in three shades (dark blue, dark olive and the dark gray I am wearing), and also includes an alpha layer, and a shoulder bag.  That should keep Ripley’s food nice and dry while I brave my way through the storm.  I’m not sure how long this special offer will last, so I’d recommend a quick tp to the shop soon if you’d like a copy for yourself.  She keeps writing about warm spring days, but I’m here to tell you, they aren’t all filled with sunshine.  A jacket comes in mighty handy on days like today.

Happiness is Homemade Soup

With mission “Dog Food” accomplished, I’m on my way back home, looking forward to savoring a steaming bowl of her secret family recipe.  If you ask, she might have some leftovers to share…

~ Stan  

P.S. – Really, it’s just Kat wishing she had someone to go out in the freezing rain to pick up dog food… but I *do* have some home made chicken noodle soup for anyone who’s willing…  🙂

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Astrid (Portia Swords) is wearing…

Body – Maitreya – Lara V4.1

A Cabin in the Woods

11-21-2017

 

One can dream…

One of my secret fantasies (no this isn’t getting naughty, sorry) is to be snowed in at a remote cabin. There is something very rustic about this dream (of course I would need internet). With plenty of books to read and watching the snow fall out the window, I believe it would be quite enjoyable for me…

Dreams aren’t the only things free…

I stopped by The Menstuff Lounge and found that the sim has once again changed. All the gift for all the ‘Stuff groups are on display along the street.  I happened across the gift provided by Tiffany Designs. The Andrew Casual Outfit includes the shirt, pants and shoes in sizes XS-XL, and looks warm enough for the coldest cabin.  While the gift is FREE, The Menstuff group does have a one time join fee of 50L.

I’ll see you in the spring….

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

I’ll Keep You Warm

Snapshot_002

See? I don’t know how it happens… The goofy furballs just follow me home wherever I go!  I found these little guys chasing eachother’s tails, bouncing through the snow drifts on The Winter Trace Sim while I was out for my morning walk today.  One of them extra snuggly, and the other extra playful. I should keep them right? 😀  There is always room for two more, right Serena? (Serena always has my back in this department).

What’s Keeping Me Warm Today

I picked up these two little guys and snuggled them warm in my big comfy sweater (which is incidentally now completely covered in mud and white fur *sighs*) that I picked up as a free gift at The Wash Cart Sale!  When I initially saw the Mimi Mesh Sweater Gift at the Tiffany Designs display, I thought it was just the sweater, but upon opening it, it does indeed include the pants too!  Just pay the vendor 0L and this outfit is yours!

Sizes included:

  • Sweater:  Fitmesh XS-L w/ alpha, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP
  • Pants:  System Layer & Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Boots, To Boot.

You can find these Nyka Boots, available in black or brown for just 10L each at The Wash Cart Sale as well – only these you’ll find at the Urbania display.  These do come with an alpha layer if you need it, and you can shift them around so whatever feet you have – they’ll work.

The Pupperdoodles…

You can play for these cute little Holiday Huskies at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  Some you hold, some you rez – all are cute!

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:
