Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included

  • Vista Bento Hands

  • Tuty Bento Hands

In a Field of Tiger Lilies

Tiger Lily

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I found a fun, flirty, and free halter top to share with you today.  Featuring criss-crossed straps, a ruffled hem, and a warm, rusty-red tone with golden accents, this jewel is a free gift for members of the Third Life group from VN Creations.  The sequined trim adds just the right amount of sparkle while the cropped length will keep you cool on warm summer days.  It coordinated beautifully with a pair of dark jeans, but I think it would also go well with a maxi skirt or a pair of shorts, depending on your mood for the day.   The Third Life group has a 10L join fee, but there are many gifts for members scattered across the grid, so your one-time investment really pays off, even if all you get is this adorable summer top.

Mesh Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL
  • alpha layer

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Ripley and I will be sure to keep our eyes and ears open for more Fabulous Finds to share with you. Until my next post, happy shopping!

Slip Into a Little Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello Fabulouses!  Mondays………nothing a little shopping can’t fix!  All you need to do is scoop up a sexy, little red dress.   The Ecce Bellus dress is a gorgeous, crimson frock crafted from crushed silk.  Slender shoulder straps, a curve-hugging fit, and a daring slit in the skirt will draw all eyes your way.   A low cut back provides a tantalizing glimpse of skin as it keeps you cool on a warm spring day.  Best of all, the mini is completely free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group.  All you have to do is switch to your Fab Free tag, teleport over the the Ecce Bellus shop, and give the board a tap.  The gift also includes the free coordinating Cassie Heels for Belleza and Slink High.  The graceful T-Strap style sandals continue the flirty feel of my outfit all the way down to the tips of my toes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer

Despite the stormy gray skies, Ripley and I decided to take a stroll through the beautifully landscaped Black Cat Orcadi Island sim, and found a lovely bed of poppies to act as a backdrop for my photo.    Now *this* is definitely the way to shake off those Monday blues!  Until next time, happy shopping, Fabulous Readers!

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Look Ma! No Meat Hands!

 Good morning Fabulouses! I did a little shopping this weekend at S@bbia and on marketplace and put together a couple of outfits I thought you might be interested in seeing.  Maybe you’ll find a piece or two to add to an outfit of your own 😉

Snapshot_005

In the photo above, I am wearing S@bbia‘s Blue Knit Sweater which you can find in the lucky board for free if your letter comes up.  This is a group lucky board, however it’s free to join, and you are going to want to snag the new group gift while you are there too, (which I will tell you about in a bit)!  I purchased the Flare Skirt in Grey for 70L that was sitting beside the lucky boards and accessorized this ensemble with some treats on marketplace!

If you are a good girl too, you can pick up the Good Girl legs tattoo in the Barn Owl shop for 10L.  My Layered Sock Boots are a free gift in the Blackburns marketplace store, and they come with a HUD that allows you to change 4 sections of the sock which means – these will match about anything!  I have shown this TuTy’s FREE Mesh Pet Carrier w/ 12 Bag Textures before, but it was months back – and this sweet bag is still available, priced at 0L, so if you didn’t pick it up the first time – you can pick it up now!

In the second photo you will see me wearing the same Knit Sweater, this time in pink – which I picked up for 100L at S@bbia to go with the Flare Skirt in Red which is S@bbia’s new group gift.  There are a ton more group gifts to pick up as well, right by the entrance so make sure you check them out too to see if there is anything you’d like.

The adorable Kitty Tights are available in the Barn Owl Marketplace store for 10L, and I have paired them up with Blackburns 19th Century Classic Lace Up Booties which were free on Marketplace!  The Sixboi’s Mustache Bag has been shown previously by Xanthe (here), and is still available as a free gift in the Sixboi’s Marketplace store.

Just a couple more things I want to show you today…  Al Vulo has placed a GORGEOUS skin at The Dressing Room Fusion called Astrea 60’s Chic in a Fairy skintone.  This skin is available for just 70L and includes all kinds of appliers including the slink hand appliers – (Hey Serena and Xiu… check me out – no meat hands!)  All by myself I figured out how to get my hands on, and then the Al Vulo applier, and then a nailpolish applier from Atooly.  Ladies…  If you tried on these mesh Slink hands when they first came out and found them WAY too hard to put on and match up – pick up the update, and try them again – it’s as easy as putting them on and clicking the appliers these days.   If I can figure this out – so can you!  You too will never be called “meat hands” again!

Whew – I’m blogged out – Happy shopping!

Looking Through Lucid Eyes

Snapshot_002

Good morning Fabulouses!

I ❤ SAKIDE hunt gifts because they are always so generous!  Yes.. it’s a three level store, and dark.. and tricky to find hunt icons in lol, but.. it is ALWAYS worth the trouble hunting at SAKIDE!  Last night I did a little Jack Or Jill Hunting and found the hidden women’s icon at the mainstore.  Inside was the Lady Tux Outfit that includes the pinstriped Lady Tux mesh pants and vest in both this colour and a lighter shade of grey as well.  These sexy black pumps are also included in the gift.

Jack Or Jill Official Blog – http://depravednation.com/jack-or-jill-2-0

Virtual Impressions has placed out a new group gift for their VIPS!  Once you activate your free inworld group tag, you can snag the Belinda Necklace in Aqua Blue shown.  There is also a free gift in a big box by the stairs that you can pick up without joining the group.  I’m not sure what’s in it today, but it’s always filled with good sparkly stuff!

If you loved the TuTy’s Christmas Gift Mesh Pet Carrier (shown here) as much as I did, you’ll be excited to know that they have placed another version of the pet carrier in the marketplace store for free without the Christmas Hat so you can carry your pooch around all year!  This bag includes a hud with 12 changeable textures and has cute holding / petting animations.

Snapshot_003

These mesmerizing eyes are the latest group gift at IKON called Lucid Eyes – Optimism.  Gavin showed these eyes yesterday and as you can see they look fab on both men and women.  They come in several sizes, so they’ll fit about anyone!  This group gift is only available for a few more days, so make sure you head on over and give them a try!  The group is free.

The skin I am in today is not free, however you can find Al Vulo’s Ramona Solstice in three skin tones at The Dressing Room Fusion for just 70L each.  It comes with blonde, red, and dark eyebrow options as well as cleavage options, and eyes (both regular and mesh – but not shown today)
