Do You Believe In Fate?

Snapshot_002
Hello there Fabulouses!  I believe it was purely fate that these two amazing royal blue group gifts by GOS Boutique and Blanco came out at the same time.  These two items colour match so perfectly, it would seem as though they were planned to be released together, but I’m sure…  it must just be a coincidence!

Fate only takes you so far…

Once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen, so go grab these gifts!

Your first stop is to Blanco to pick up the beautiful halter Stasia Dress that is a free group gift.  Blanco is a small shop right next to Scandalize and the gift is very easily found as soon as you enter.   I am displaying this dress in a gorgeous shade of blue, however it does come with a texture change HUD that allows for 10 solid colours and 3 prints.  This group is free to join.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya

Fate pulls you in different directions

It’s a good thing that it does, because you’ll need to take a teleport to GOS Boutique to grab the latest group gift called Karrueche in the colour of Snorkel Blue. These shoes come in XXS-L sizes as well as fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh feet.  The group is 250L to join

Transparency_001

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!

Hey there FabFree Readers!  You caught me catching a few rays at Devin again.   He’s around exploring somewhere too… Last I saw him he was on the shore shoo-ing away his flock of sexy gullfriends again.  I just watch and shake my head.

Do You Dare Wear Short Shorts?

What inspired my afternoon outing was these great Camo Maya Shorts that I picked up as a free group gift at Bueno.  These high waisted stunners come in ripped/regular versions as well as several sizes for mesh bodies as listed below and the best part is – The Bueno inworld group is free to join!

Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Yesterday Once More

mom
When I was growing up, the world was a different place.  Some changes are for the better, and some are for the worse.  I remember it seemed like my Mom was just always cleaning.  I suppose it was her way of keeping busy.  There was no internet, no cable TV, crib night on Fridays, and bowling day was just on Mondays.  Whatever was a stay at home Mom to do the rest of the week?  Often times, I’d find her holding a cigarette in one hand, and the vacuum in the other, with The Carpenters spinning on the record player.  To this day, The Carpenters are still my cleaning music go-to 😉

Fashion Flashback

I came across this sweet Carole Outfit at I.M. Collection as a free SLF&O inworld group gift, and it gave me flashbacks of those old days.  The Carole Outfit includes the mint pants and the tropical printed cropped blouse as show on my avatar in several sizes for mesh bodies.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so you can pick this up with no cost at all to you!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

ps.  While you are at I.M. Collection, make sure you grab the store group gift Serena Showed you [HERE]!

So Sweet You’ll Get A Toothache

MOoHAstralia
Sugar Free – Calorie Free – Cost Free

Hey there Fabulouses! If you don’t happen to have 410 spare calories for the real life limited time Unicorn Frappuccino that Starbucks has just released, don’t fret!  You can live  out your wildest full fat, triple the sugar fantasies here in Second Life!

Astralia wants you to have a calorie free Cute Frappuccino as a free subscribing gift. This gift contains a static and holdable cup so you can set it down, or hold it to drink if you like.  I haven’t actually tried one of these…  I usually just go for my Caramel Macchiato, which is already really sweet.  The pink and blue magical drink is pretty, but looks a little sweet, even for my threshold of sugary goodness.  Have you tried it?  I’m curious what it tastes like!

On A Clothing Note…

The breezy summer outfit I am wearing today is called Willow and is available at MOoH!, priced at 40% off until May 4th.  This brings it down to 99L, but if you still have your monthly group credit handy, you can pick it up  for free – with 51 lindens left to spare on your card!

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

ZZZZZZ

clearsleepJust five more minutes

It was all peachy and peaceful until 6:55AM…  This is my morning routine, done most days like clockwork.

6:55 AM – (opens one eye and tries to muffle the sound of the alarm clock with a pillow)

6:56 AM – (smacks randomly at the night stand trying to turn off “Walking on Sunshine, WHOAH” – misses it and gives up)

6:57 AM – (buries herself under the blankets, head and all, trying harder to hit the snooze button… ahhh  hits it! :))

7:00AM – (Alarm B goes off…  groans into pillow and admits defeat – FINE!)

A few years back, after learning there is just no avoiding the routine, I started setting my alarm five minutes ahead so I wasn’t late.  I believe I have scheduled myself 5 more minutes.  Whatever works, I say!  I was so comfy in my new nightie by United Color, having the most wonderful dream that I just didn’t want to get up, and I certainly didn’t want to change into day clothes, or go to work…  but alas I had to.

Are you a morning person?

Whether you are a morning person or not, you’ll look fantastic in this feminine little nightie.  The Midnight Dress in white is available as a FREE GIFT at The Free Dove in the lingerie section and comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to switch up the lace three different ways.  I zoomed in nice and close so you can see just how detailed the texturing is on this beautiful design.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Vroom! Vroooom!

THE PEA MOBILE_002

Vroom! Vroom!

I haven’t had a new car since 2004. At least in real life. And even then I bought a used one. So when I heard that I could get a new free car at MadPea (even if it was a Pea Pod car) I was all in for a new set of wheels!

I made a mad dash to the MadPea main-store to check out the deal and it wasn’t long before I was cruising down the streets of Port Babbage in my favorite of the 7 colors that are available in the free gift pack. The group is free to join by the way, making this gift absolutely free as well. If I look like I’m having fun, that’s because I am!

Perks:

  • This car is wearable, no rezzing required.
  • The headlights turn off and on with a click.
  • 7 Colors in the package: Dark Blue, Green (shown), Light Green, Orange, Pink, Red, Turquoise.
  • Each color comes in a fit for both male and female avatar so you won’t have to worry about that problem.
  • I found it easy to edit the car when up and down a bit and then set my hover height a touch when the wheels didn’t quite touch the ground.
  • It’s easy to drive/navigate!
  • Did I already mention its absolutely FREE?!

THE PEA MOBILE_001

Cruising…

I was cruising down the streets (plus I wanted to give you a side view of this cute little pea-pod of a car – aren’t all the details amazing!) and ran across a little bakery shop. I decided to make a stop and get out of my new wheels and head in…

THE PEA MOBILE_003

A spring dress.

I had to step out carefully, as I was wearing a bit of a short skirted dress today. Good thing my MadPea car sets low to the ground, it makes for easy exits. My adorable frock is a free group gift from Graffitiwear for the month of April. You just need your free group tag to pick it up.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • Fitmesh XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Let’s Go Lil’ Slugger

Lil' Slugger
With the sun still shining on the way home from work (HORRAY FOR LONGER DAYS!), he was itching to throw a few balls outside and enjoy the sun. I was just getting dinner started, when he came in to the kitchen.  “Let’s go Lil’ Slugger!” he said, passing the baseball back and forth between his hand and the glove making a thunking sound as it hit the leather.  I turned to respond “I have to start di…” but he cut me off with “Don’t worry, baby!  I’ll go easy on you.”. I stopped  mid-chop because that was all I needed to hear.  I grabbed one of his caps off the coat rack, laced up my shoes and followed behind him to the yard.

Heading Out

We stopped at the open part of the yard and he went on and on the whole way out trying to teach me how to hit the ball. “Keep your head up, legs bent, eyes on the ball and full swing.”.  I looked at him out of the corner of my eye, and waited for him to stop talking and start throwing the ball.  He finally moved back into his pitching position, while I dug my feet in, wiggled my butt and did a couple practice swings.  He called from about 10 feet away “See honey?  Nice and close. Ready?”.  “PFFT, MOVE BACK!” I responded, turning my cap backwards.  He laughed, admiring my confidence but agreed and moved back a little more to play along.  I did tell him he should move back a little more again.. WAY more, but he laughed it off and took his place.

Up To Bat

He threw the ball…  “THWAK!!” went the bat as I hit the ball, and watched it fly over his head, over the fence, and into the pasture.  He blinked his eyes and just looked at me as I straightened my mini dress. “I told you to move back.” I said with a shrug and a smile.

Mini Dress For Success

Speaking of mini dress…  This sweet Tank Dress in Lemon is available as a free group gift at BlackRose with a free group join.  It’s quite similar to the FabFree group gift dress that was shown by Kathryn [HERE], so if you like this one, make sure you grab that one too!

Sizes Available:

  • Mesh in XXS –  L  + alpha
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus
