Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Only Us

Fenceline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a darling outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.  With a floral crop top and sleek shorts, this outfit will have you ready for a weekend adventure, without putting even so much as a tiny dent in your budget.

Pretty Floral Print

Lalie from WellMade has lots of fine details such as the semi transparent generous cuffs, the ruffled edge on the hem and coordinating ties dangling down on the sides of the shorts.  While I opted for a grayish botanical print and black shorts, with the enclosed HUD, you have three other options for the top and bottom that you can switch up and combine to your heart’s content.  Since each piece is worn separately, you can mix and match with other items already in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, since the WellMade group has no join fee, you can add this summery number to your inventory completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Elemental Forces

Rose

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I was in the mood for a dramatic pop of color today, and I found it in the sexiest little dress that I picked up as a prize in the Elemental Desire 2 Hunt for just 25 Linden dollars.  I am super excited to share this one with you!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Vespera Dress from Ambient Fashion features a curve-hugging style that will have you looking and feeling red-hot.  I just love the cut outs in the front of this frock and the way the back plunges dramatically low.  The fabric has a subtle geometric pattern that catches the light when you move.  This little number is perfect for a Friday date night!  Best of all, the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  To add this racy little mini to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the hunt object – the symbols of fire, air, earth and water on a black background – hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a handy hint giver on the hunt poster on the wall.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, there is also a 1 Linden dollar prize for the same hunt in the store as well.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody Curvy and Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

The Elemental Desires 2 Hunt runs until August 25th, so you still have plenty of time to discover some Fabulous Finds along the trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP
    • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Ahoy There!

Ahoy There

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Fourth of July to our readers in the USA!  Ripley and I found a lovely spot for a picnic on the Summer Edge sim…. a place far away from those noisy fireworks that freak him out in RL.  All those booms, whistles and crackling sounds make him so nervous, so I will be keeping him close until the evening’s celebrations are through tonight.  I saw an article online about an animal shelter where people spend the evening with lawn chairs and treats, providing comfort to the homeless canines on the 4th of July, and I thought that was such a wonderful idea!  If Ripley wasn’t so upset by the noises in real life, I’d love to help out too.

No Stars, but I Did Find Stripes

Earlier today, the pupster and I spent some time over at the Ghee store seeking out red anchors concealed throughout the sim as part of the Ahoy There Ghee Nautical Hunt.  Each item costs 10 Linden dollars, and we are showing you two of the 40 + items you can scoop up at the hunt.  First, I’d like to draw your attention to my navy colored sailor shorts.  They feature a high-waisted, curve hugging fit, and two columns of golden buttons.  Three vertical seams add a realistic touch to the fabric.  With a coordinating combination of navy and white stripes, the nautical stripe top completes my outfit.  This little number ties on the sides and boasts spaghetti thin shoulder straps.  It provides coverage in all the right places but also leaves plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun.  If navy blue isn’t your color, there is also a lighter blue version of the top and shorts as well as red concealed separately as part of the hunt.  I really liked the darker blue hues in these two hunt prizes, so for a total of just 20 Linden dollars, I was quite pleased with my nautical look.  The hunt runs through July 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Inner Peace and Quiet

 

Inner Peace and Quiet

Sometimes everyone needs to take a moment and just bask in the quiet. I took some needed time to be alone, be silent, and quiet my mind. It’s part of how I “self care.” Second Life in a lot of ways is part of my self care also. Among many things (and a few people), this blog and the never ending quest for fabulous freebies are therapeutic. They are/it is good for my psyche. For this post I’ve got the latest group gift at gO! to share with you, and free SL16B gifts from Peaches, Libertine, and Ariskea. I hope they’re good for your psyche too.

About The Dress – 

One of the things I’ve always admired about clothing from gO! is the texture. This group gift dress is no different. The detailed textures are such that it’s easy to imagine how this dress would feel, how it would move. The gO! group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. To get your gift simply join the group, then click the gift vendor behind the desk while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

About The Blanket & Décor

I still can’t get over the number of gifts out at the SL16B shopping event. I do wish there were more gifts for the guys, sorry gents, though I did pick up a few great décor items along side the many gifts for the ladies. One of which is this very cute summery blanket with animations, and the froggy incense holder by Peaches. Notably named “The Queen’s Peace”, this gift has single and bento PG couples poses. You’ll find this free SL16B gift by Peaches waiting in the SL16B Tinseled region.

Doesn’t this little owl planter by Ariskea look like it was made to go with the SL16B gift by Peaches? I think it definitely does. This adorable owl comes exactly as shown and is copy, mod, no transfer. You can get yours for free at the Ariskea shop on the SL16B Aurelian region.

Pears are possibly my favorite fruit. This delicious looking plate of pears is the free SL16B gift by Libertine. Along with these perfectly plated pears, the Libertine gift includes a broken plate version with scattered berries and chocolates, and a little note. This free SL16B gift is waiting in the SL16B Aurelian region as well

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here
Skin – Essences – Vanya
