A Slight Navigational Mishap

Wrong Turn

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to head to another beach to continue enjoying our long weekend, but, sadly, his navigational skills are not quite up to par with his fantastic nose.  We got hopelessly lost after a wrong turn, and while trying to find the correct route, ran out of gas.  Well, if I have to be sidelined, at least I can be stranded in style…

Free Shorts?  Count Me In!

Before leading us down the wrong path somewhere along the way, Ripley sniffed out a great find at the [WellMade] in world store, so I can’t be too upset with him for his co-piloting abilities.  In addition to ten other free gifts for WellMade group members, the generous designer has set out these cuffed Natallie shorts for free.  Best of all, the WellMade group is completely free to join.  Adorned with two columns of triple buttons, the shorts fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  The gift package includes a color change HUD that enables you two choose between this deep crimson shade and a navy blue hue.  If you don’t have a group slot available, you can also pick up these summertime staples at the [WellMade] Marketplace shop for only 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Textures and Colors Galore

Back when The Cart Wash Sale was in full swing, I blogged about a cute little white Babado top in my post {HERE}.  Since that time, Bacidalucia Oh has created a new version which includes a HUD enabling you to select one of four texture options and 18 color choices.  To coordinate with my shorts, I opted for a deep red shade with the first of the four background prints, but there are so many other available combinations….all for only 49L.  You get the same off the shoulder fit, and softly draped fabric, finished with ric-rack trim as the original, with multiple options for customization.  To add this cropped top to your inventory, teleport over to the Baci shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

A Trail of Ripley Snacks

Instead of handing a map to my hound with a nose for fashion, I probably would have been better off leaving a trail of Ripley snacks to follow, kind of Hansel and Gretel style.  Live and learn, I guess…  Now, do any of you wonderful readers have a gallon of gas you can spare? 😉 Until my next post, happy shopping!

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

Once Upon a Fairy Tale

Once Upon a Fairy Tale

Once upon a time…….a fair princess named Kathryn followed her sure-footed canine Prince Ripley on a journey through the lands beyond First Life.  They had many marvelous adventures including rescuing homeless kittens, conquering dust bunnies, and spying a Kraken while sailing across sparkling waters.  Along the way, the fair maiden and her companion kept their eyes peeled for bargains and special items to share with their readers.  On this fair evening, two sweet, new friends lead our adventurers to discover yet another Fabulous Find…

Pretty in Pastel

My outfit tonight features a rose-tinted, high-waist maxi skirt which hugs my curves and drapes softly to a slightly ruffled, ankle-length hem.  Naomi comes in fitmesh in two sizes (XXS – S) and (M-L) as well as a Maitreya version.  In this picture, I am sporting the fitmesh style, even though I am wearing my Maitreya Lara body.  For some reason, the top I chose to wear kept poking through the Maitreya version of the skirt, but it behaves itself with the fitmesh option.  This long skirt is fit for a princess, yet won’t dent the palace coffers at all, since it is a free gift for the Second Life Frees and Offers Group.  Best of all, the group is completely free to join!  All you need to do to add the Naomi skirt to your wardrobe is switch to your SL Frees and Offers group tag, teleport over to the WellMade store, then tap the group gift sign.

Finishing Touches

My baby unicorn friend is gazing up at my Love and Luck Necklace from Kerriki.  I think its subtle sparkle and sheen caught the little one’s fancy.  I can’t say I blame her!  A delicate shade of pink tourmaline, the clover pendant sits suspended from a finely wrought silver chain, just waiting to bring good fortune my way.  With a price tag of only one little linden, I couldn’t pass up a four-leafed lucky charm!  This little gem can be yours with one quick shopping trip to the Marketplace. Who knows, it might even bring you good luck, too!

Off to Explore

Before the alarm clock rouses me from my fairy tale slumber, the pupster and I need to check out some more of the Once Upon a Fairy Tale sim.  Sweet dreams to you, dear readers, and happy shopping!
