Hello again Fabulouses!  Today I would like to share with you, news of the latest Glitterati by Sapphire group gift :)  We are seeing a lot of florals pop out this spring in fashion, and I am loving it!  The group gift this month from Sapphire is the lovely mesh (also comes in the NEW FITMESH version) dress with shoulder ribbon accents.  If you are not already a member, you will need to pay a 50 join fee, but once you have joined you will have gained access to years and years worth of monthly gifts and also will be eligible to take part in the VIP discounts.

Lucky S@bbia

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! My RL weather isn’t quite co-operating with the spring calendar, but I can play long in Second Life!  Today I’m wearing a springy type outfit that I put together with some free and inexpensive items I thought you might like to hear about!  I found this great mesh Peplum Tunic in a group lucky board at S@bbia.  It changed to “L” the minute I walked in as if it was fate I should have it.  If only that always happened – LOL!.   It was my lucky day I guess :). The group is free to join, and you’ll want to join anyways to grab these fantastic mesh denim shorts  that go so nicely with the Lucky Board prize top!  While I was in the S@bbia shop looking around, I grabbed this adorable Ribbon Straw bag for 50L.

If you are in the market for a new skin, make sure you check out The Happy Bunny Gacha Fair.  Wow Skins is participating and has their new Rima skin available in three skin tones at 100L per play along with slink appliers, tango appliers and a shape too!  Below I am displaying the six makeup variations you can play for in the Bronze skin tone.

Smokin’ Bubbles

Snapshot_010
Good morning Fabulouses! I can’t believe it’s almost mid month already and I haven’t done the April Showers FabFree Photo Challenge yet!  I logged on last night to snap some pictures on one of my favourite rainy sims….  The Cupcake Sim!  They have the best puddles for splashing!  If you’d like to participate in this challenge as well – you can find more information on it [HERE]!

Wondering about the goods?  I found some really fun items last night to put together this look :)  I picked up the Mesh Short Jumpsuit for 10L  on the wall above the stairs at Aushka & Co., and tossed on the newly released Slink Add-on Lora Wedges, available now at the Pure Poison Mainstore.  The colour black is on VIP special for half price for  limited time at just 99L!

After I had the basics, I popped over to LEONARD and saw that there is a brand new group gift available for inworld members (80L to join) which is the Sherlock Pipe that blows bubbles (available in silver and gold!).  There are also several inexpensive to play gacha machines placed around the shop.  I picked up these LaDonna Glasses for 40L per play!

The fun bobbed hair with a headband  is made by LaNoir Soleil Designs and will be available at the upcoming round of The Soho Market that begins Monday, April 14th for just 147L!  It comes with a HUD that allows for three hair colour fades as well as headband texture change ;)  Sweet deal!

ps.  Speaking of Aushka & Co…  You should like their FB page!  Check out this ad…

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone…
RPH5-#27(69 Park Ave)

This is for all the Fab Free guys out there who think Menstuff and Make Him Over are the only hunts where men can find high quality, free or nearly free items.  Love, Xia and Xiu have been blogging The Runway Perfect Hunt #5 gifts.  Yes it’s true that most of the 51 stops on it have female gifts, but a couple of them have men’s prizes.  Today I’m showing you two gifts guys can pick up from RPH5, plus a couple of other freebies.

The Cayman outfit in sandstone is from 69 Park Ave GQ and features a jacket layer shirt, brown mesh pants, and dress shoes – a complete outfit for only $5L.  It’s a nice casual outfit for an evening out or at home with your lady.  And while you’re looking around the store for the gift be sure to check out the group gift. 69 Park Ave GQ gives out nice ones and they change frequently, so it’s well worth the small joining fee to get them.  The pose is one of five male poses offered by KaTink in the RPH5.

Wow Skins Easter Egg Hunt

WoW Skins is holding an Easter Egg Hunt at their mainstore from April 11th – April 22nd and during this fun event, you will find 10 hidden Easter Eggs priced at 15L each, as well as a special GOLDEN EGG with an extra special prize.  I completed this hunt last night, and found that there are a whopping NINE skin sets to be found!  There is also an outfit and a set of lipsticks, but my focus today is these skins!!  I <3 Laura and Cassandra, however I think my favourite has got to be the skin I found in the golden egg – Soraya and amazingly it came with all kinds of goodies like a shape, tons of appliers and freckles layers too!

Fab Advice – Edition #14

Untitled

********

QUESTION #1:  I am a new resident in SecondLife or a “newb” as I have been called and I would like to know how I can get people to speak to me???  Most that I approach see my rez in date and run for the hills. :( Thank you for this blog.  I’m sexy this early on in the game  ~ thanks to you.

Love Says:  It’s hard being the new girl/guy in most types of places, and Second Life is no different.  Everything is foreign in this world and it will take time to learn the ropes, and meet your friends and family.  My advice is to just explore different sims, join groups you find interest in and be friendly  but respectful :).  If you IM someone and they don’t respond, just move on.  Not everyone is in SL to meet people.  Some come to escape for peace and quiet!   Thank you for your kind words regarding the FabFree Blog – we are glad to help!

Xiu Says:  First, welcome to SL!  I would suggest finding things that you enjoy…such as music, art, books, poetry, education, building etc.  Then look for groups to join that focus on those activities…for example Builder’s Brewery has been around forever and it is a fantastic place to meet people while exploring the amazing plethora of FREE classes they offer.  You can find a directory of their classes, like photography, jewelry making, clothing design etc., right at their landing point.  Join Facebook and start chatting people up there or start following blogs that feature posts about activities and places to see around the grid.  Daniel Voyager, Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell all have fantastic blogs that feature an amazing array of activities and places to visit on their blogs; you can also friend them on Facebook to help get you started with making connections there. If you’re into photography, there is a HUGE presence and a ton of SL groups you can join on Flickr; where you can meet fellow SLers and establish connections there. I’m not covering dance clubs, though it is a great place to see people, I think there are better places to truly meet people and make friends.  You can also find lots of opportunities, through reading the Linden Labs updates on the SL dashboard, to volunteer for events…where you will be helping others AND making friends!  Good luck and have fun! <3 <3

********

QUESTION #2:  what are some fun and free activities to do in SL?

Love Says:  Almost everything in Second Life is free!  There are of course some things that cost money… like shopping and there are fees to enter a small amount of sims, but many, many fun activities are free!  Freebie shopping of course is one of my favourites, but you can also visit events, attend live shows, visit clubs, go to poetry readings, and open mic nights!  There are also amusement parks and RP sims if you are into that kind of thing!

Xiu Says:  My favorite activities are exploring and sailing…well shopping also, but that isn’t always free lol.  For sailing…look for Sailor’s Cove or Fisher’s Island Yacht Club…both are public places connected to the Bake Sea.  You will be able to find a lot of information on sailing, classes for sailing, racing, and various sailing groups you can join to become more involved with sailing.  You can also get a free starter boat at those locations.  As for exploring…there is the SL Destination Guide where you can find great places to explore; many also have great interactive things to do, at their location, as well.  You can also do a search for Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell…both individuals have really great SL travel blogs; where you will find so many great places to explore and activities to enjoy!  If you like RP (Role Play), there are TONS of places you can explore and often you will be able to get started for free.  If you’d like to try flying in SL…do a search for airfields…they will often have temp rezzers where you can rez a plane or helicopter and fly around the Blake Sea.  There are also a ton of Art Galleries, Exhibits, Museums, Educational Centers and Live Music venues…use your search option and enter those key words/phrases into it…you’ll be surprised how many places there are to have FREE fun! <3 <3
