Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Beach More, Worry Less

Salt in the Air

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It was one of those days in real life when the day to day stresses seemed to pile up on my shoulders, and all I wanted to do was escape to the shore.  Since I am a long way from the ocean, Ripley and I did the next best thing……we escaped to NorderNey in Second Life.  Of course, I had to wear the newest addition to my summery wardrobe – a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.

Like the Sea – Wild and Free

This beautiful Turquesa Boho Beach Dress from Poeme is perfect for soaking up some sunshine in the salty air.  It features slender spaghetti straps, a comfy casual cut, and a soft pale teal hue.    I really like the intricate white pattern which is swirled across the fabric.  The free gift package also includes a pair of Mandala Turquoise earrings that coordinate perfectly with the outfit.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, this warm weather frock is sure to fit most.  To add Turquesa to your SL closet, simply teleport over to Poeme, activate your Teleport Hub group tag, and tap the vendor.  If you’re not already part of the group, membership costs only 10L, and includes gifts around the grid.  It’s so worth the fee!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Mandala Turquoise Earrings also included

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Not So Basic

Not So Basic

My go-to is the little black dress.  I love the easy glam of pulling on a black dress and knowing it will be appropriate, no matter the situation.  However, some days you really just want to push the envelope a bit.  Purple is the perfect half way point, I think.  Because it’s dark, sultry, and um…not black!  In my post today, I’ll tell you all about where to grab this particularly head-turning ensemble!

Dressed Up

I found my not so basic dress at Masoom!  Their April group gift is this dress that toes the line between supersexy and regal, and I’m loving every minute of it!  You can grab yours by joining the Masoom group for 10L.  I mean, check out them cut outs!  How can you possibly live without?  😉

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Well Heeled

My shoes today were a completely free find at Bodyfy – the event that focuses mostly on tattoos and other suchness.  I was pleased to find a free pair of shoes by Fashion Addiction.  Just find the red buttons at each stall to pick up your gifts – no group join required, making these pretty pumps completely free!  The Bodyfy event is open until April 24th.

Best Tressed

And, it’s Truth time!  The March group gift came out a smidge late, however check out this pretty thing!  As always, the Truth monthly group gift is gorgeous, with a full fatpack of colours and a stylist HUD that lets you change up the bangs.  It’s kinda like getting 4 hairstyles in one!  If you haven’t joined the Truth group, it may seem a little pricey at 350 Lindens, but every month you get a sweet hairstyle that is always top notch.  Well worth it!

Time to sashay away!

Growing My Awareness

Rockin' the Polka Dots

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy April!  It’s always so exciting to have a new month roll around, so my pal Ripley and I can dust off his tracking harness and hit the trail.  My outfit today is from an April hunt that is not only fun, but also works to raise awareness about Autism, which affects 1 in 50 children.  I am so happy to do my part to support MixMatchMissy with this endeavor.  Her goal with this hunt is to encourage people to “pay it forward by thinking of how you can assist at least one person with autism into feeling safe, included, and valued.”  If you’d like to learn more about Autism or the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, please take a moment to visit MixMatchMissy’s blog post about the topic.

Rockin’ the Polka Dots

This adorable crimson frock with white polka dots from Thirteen is just simply adorable!  I love, love, love the cut out section in the front that allows for a peek at your midsection, and the high cut sides.  Playful spaghetti straps and a back that dips just below your shoulder blades round out the look.  Its eye catching color combination is sure to raise your spirits.  The prize package includes versions for mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can add this fun dress to your spring wardrobe completely for free once you locate the hunt object concealed within the shop.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

This hunt runs until the end of April, and contains lots of beautiful gifts.  Many of them are free, and some cost 1 Linden dollar, but are well worth the teensy cost.  The pupster and I are going to continue on with the hunt, and look forward to sharing some more Fabulous Finds with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Long Day

Long Day
Hey There Fab Free’rs. Welcome back to the blog. I’m always happy you’re here. Yesterday one of those days where you daydream about that moment when you can come home and soak in a nice warm bath. While waiting for the tub to fill and the bath bomb to work it’s magic, I did a little Fab Free style shopping. Here’s what I found: adorable group gift shorts from Moon Amore, and a pretty white ink tattoo by Abyel.

The Shorts – Perfect for lounging around the house, or even a quick errand, these shorts are a must have. They are a recent group gift at Moon Amore and they include a fat pack texture change hud. When I say fatpack, I mean fatpack. There are 36 different texture options for these too cute shorts. They are fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only however. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden. I think these shorts alone are worth that! You can find this gift at the store or in the recent group notices.

The Tattoo –  There is an event called “Up” and there are quite a few 10 linden gifts at the current round. I picked up several, one of which is this tattoo by Abyel. The tattoo is a full upper body tattoo with pretty imagery front and back. I like the addition of little blue/purple flowers and butterflies.  This beautiful 10 linden gift tattoo at Up comes in appliers only.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Omega, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena

Chasin’ The March Hare and Avoiding That Evil Bunny

Room Enough for Two

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Just a quick mid-week post to share with you a complete outfit (minus the shoes) that you can pick up at REA as a hunt prize in the Mad as a March Hare Hunt.  The studded jacket, trousers, and even a white top are included, but I opted to go without the t-shirt.  Also tucked inside the prize package is an evil bunny in a chick costume that perches on your shoulder.  Don’t tell him I said so, but that little critter scared Ripley so much that I quickly shoved it back inside the box.  The poor guy was hiding behind Loki the cat, whining and shaking.  Some big, tough German Shepherd, eh?

What’s Included:

  • Evil Bunny Shoulder Pet (not shown)
  • Bunny Headband (not shown)
  • Shannon Jacket (with t-shirt) in S, M, L and Fitmesh (not shown)
  • Shannon Open Jacket in S, M, L, and Fitmesh (shown in picture)
  • Jeans in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layers for both jacket versions and pants

You get all this for just 1 Linden dollar when  you locate the hunt icon – a sitting rabbit.  It’s pretty well hidden in the store, but with the pupster’s assistance, and some careful searching, we finally found it.  The hunt runs until March 31st, so you still have some time left to do some sleuthing and grab a copy for yourself.

Happy hunting!

A Crown of Daisies

She Carried Magic Secrets in Her Eyes

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  As the weekend is wrapping up, I wanted to pop in quickly and share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

She Wore Flowers in Her Hair

Ripley and I headed over to the Medieval Fantasy Fair, and he helped me locate this free gorgeous Daisy Wreath.  The cheerful yellow flowers and bright green leaves lifted my spirits as soon as I put it on.  It fit perfectly over my Ophelia hair from Truth, but it comes with full editing rights, so you can stretch it if need be.  Best of all, once we located the hunt object, a moon with a star and a cloud, it was completely free.  The only cost was a little bit of our time spent searching…. which I didn’t mind at all.  After you arrive at the Fair, head to the Lunaria booth, and the prize is hidden inside.

She Wore Flowers in Her Hair

Bold Floral Print

To coordinate with my lovely daisy crown, I wanted to find a yellow dress, and it took me a few days to settle on just the right frock.  Over at Legendaire, I spotted the Susan Maxi Dress, which comes with a texture change HUD packed with ten choices for the main body of the dress, and 20 options for the bodice section, all for just 59L.  With so many textures to choose from, it was like getting a whole bundle of dresses in one box.  A leather purse is also included, but I decided not to wear it for my photos.  Although I donned the mesh body version, the package also contains mesh for classic avatars as well.  I love wearing maxi dresses in RL, and was thrilled to find such a pretty one in my SL travels.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venusen

I hope your week gets off to a fantastic start tomorrow.  It’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guard dog duties for the pupster.  Sometimes I find myself wondering during the day exactly what he is doing.  I have a feeling he spends a lot of his time snoozing until the cats decide to have some fun.  One of my cats, Loki, seems to enjoy teasing poor Ripley from the other side of the gate.  It would be interesting to have a camera set up to catch some footage…

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Morning Ride

Morning Ride

Happy Friday, fabulous readers!

After spending the last week or so in bed with the flu, I thought it would be nice to take Fergus out for a refreshing ride. After all, he was literally chomping at the bit, so I took that as a not-so-subtle hint on his part. 🙂

Anyway, today I’m sharing a casual gift from Anny’s Fashion for members of the TeleportHub group. For just 10L, you can join the TeleportHub in-world group and pick up Beatrice Jeans & Tank Top. Sizes include the following…

Beatrice Jeans in Emerald

  • Belleza
