Getting Some Exercise Around the Grid

You Me and the Sea

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your July is going well.  Ripley and I had a great time camping up in the mountains.  Even though we came back to sizzling temperatures, it feels good to be home.  The pupster didn’t want to eat much while we were away, and I was worried he had lost weight.  He actually gained a pound, so we decided the best thing to do was to hit the hunt trail in SL to get some exercise.  That still counts as exercise, right? 😉

Around the Grid

As we traversed the SL universe, we stopped by Nuts Inc, and Ripley discovered the hot air balloon hunt icon fairly quickly.  One nice thing about the Around the Grid Hunt is if you are short on time, you can pay 25 Linden dollars for the prize, or invest a bit of energy and discover the hidden hunt object and pay just 1 Linden dollar.  Thankfully, with the pupster’s help, I paid a very budget-friendly 1 Linden dollar for this adorable Sari outfit.  I just love the combination of blue and rusty hues in both the top and skirt.  This little number features a cropped top with a tasseled hemline and a mini skirt with two slits to make moving around a breeze.  Although I chose not to wear them, the hunt prize also included sandals and a backpack.  This outfit is compatible with classic and mesh body avatars.  The hunt runs until September 30th, so you have plenty of time to uncover some fabulous prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for skirt and top)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

Beach Hair

My short windswept locks are perfect for a day at the beach.  I picked this new hairstyle up for free as a group gift from Barberyumyum.  It comes only in this sun-kissed blonde color, but I just love it!  With the enclosed HUD, you can adjust the size of the hair to get just the right fit.  The folder includes rigged and non-rigged versions as well as an alpha layer for your scalp.  To add this free gift to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Double Paradox group, but it’s completely free to join.  There are five other gifts set out for group members, too.

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Deep Greens and Blues Are the Colors I Choose

Summer Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are back from our camping trip.  We had beautiful blue skies and no snow this time!  It was nice to get away, but it also feels so good to be home again.  The first thing we did this morning was to make a return visit to Ajuda SL Brasil to do a little budget friendly shopping.  We found a super cute casual outfit to share with you on this Monday.

Earthy Greens and Blues

I guess I have green on my mind since the pupster and I were out in nature for the past 6 days.  When I saw the Bettina Top and Shorts set from Cynderella’s as a free gift, I knew it was destined for my inventory!  With its loose fitting verdant crop top and pale denim shorts, this is just the right get up for an easy summer day.  The top features spaghetti style shoulder straps and a vibrant botanical print.  A coordinating floral motif and lace trim on the jeans echoes the theme, and a sturdy belt provides a finishing accessory.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh body types.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free, with no group membership required! I appreciated the fact that the designer included a note card certifying that the outfit is an original creation donated to Ajuda Brasil to be offered as a gift to residents.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Make it a soulful shade of blue

FabFree: Make it a soulful shade of blue

Hey there Fabulouses!  I’m playing “dress maker” today!  I did take a sewing class once, and I barely passed.. WITH HELP!  Perhaps I should stick to buying dresses, instead of making them.  In fact… how about I just find them for free??

Like this one!!

At I.M. Collection in the group gift area, you will find the Aisha Skirt & Top I am wearing.  Sometimes you need to just look a little professional, even in SL and this dress fits the bill with it’s wool texture and bronze buttons.  This free gift is available to members of the Inventory Trends group and it is free to join!

Sizes Included:

  • Top – Fitmesh S-L + Slink & Maitreya

This is a very limited time offer, and I hope it’s still available by the time I hit the publish button, but at the landing point of White River Farms, you’ll find that the White River Co. has the Autumn Dusk hairstyle in the essentials pack priced at 50L!  It comes with a variety of different colours and a texture change HUD for the scarf so you can match up with whatever you are wearing ;).

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

The week before Christmas is always a bit hectic, wouldn’t you say?  I know I’ve been running around in RL trying to stay organised without losing my mind.  At moments like these, I need a bit of a calm space.  There are some lovely places in SL where you can collect yourself and remember to just breathe!

By the White River

White River Co.  have got some super lovely freebies in their group notices!  My lovely hair and antlers, as well as my cozy sweater are all tucked away in the notices section of the group profile.  I joined the group for free, and there they were all bundled up nicely for me!  The Sweater comes with a few different texture options (I went for the Christmas ornament look!) and is sized for Maitreya and Hourglass.  The hair comes with several solid and ombré hair colour options.  You can mix it up and will surely look cute whichever way you decide to wear it all!

Don’t forget to breathe, my pretties!

A Lucky Autumn Jewel

Autumn Jewel Tones

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day, Ripley and I were picking up items at a weekend sale over at Siss Boom, and I noticed two Lucky Boards on the wall.  They featured gorgeous cowl neck cropped sweaters in autumn shades.  Of course, with my canine good luck charm by my side, all I had to do was spend a bit of time waiting, then I scurried on home to try out my new sweaters.

As Pretty As the Changing Leaves

Isn’t this dark jewel tone lovely?  The gift box included fits for various mesh body styles and also a fit mesh version for classic avatars, but there was no alpha layer.  I went back to the pre-mesh Kat and the fit mesh worked just fine on my old shape.  I absolutely adore the rich hues in this cropped sweater; they are ideal for fall weather.  The intricate pattern is just so eye-catching!  You do have to be a member of the Siss Boom group to be able to win the free prizes from the Lucky Boards, but there are a ton of group gifts on the wall that you can pick up as well, so your 500L join fee will bring you some fantastic outfits.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh (no alpha layer included, but I didn’t need it for my non-mesh body)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Ripley and I are off for our evening walk.  Until next time, happy shopping!
