Hawaiian Orange Pekoe

untitled
Hey Fabulouses! Check out what I found on marketplace in the Orange*Pekoe store!

As I have previously mentioned on FabFree, Orange*Pekoe has a ton of dollarbie wearable demos on marketplace in the shade of orange. If orange is your thing- you should check them out! Today I picked up the  demo of the Hawaiian Set for 7L that includes the mesh floral skirt, purple bikini (includes the bottoms too if you don’t want to wear the skirt), book bag, hooked sunglasses, shoes & hair flower.  The shoes are for system feet, not the slinks just so you know ;)

SLiving Vicariously

Snapshot_005Hello Fabulouses! The long awaited weekend is finally here, YAY!  Now… if only the RL rain would quit, I (the real me) could enjoy it as much as Love Trill is in her cute beachy summerwear.  I will have to SLive vicariously through her today and soak up some virtual sun and sand :).

Love’s outfit today consists of some newer lucky board prizes that are available at SMC.  I was lucky enough to snag the Bustier Top in Red, the Denim Shorts (which have great detailing on the back pockets – shoulda done a butt shot, sorry!), and the fun Swim Rings too.  The Swim Rings come in two versions… One to wear over your shoulder and one around your waist – I have edited the placement of the shoulder ring to work with this pose.  There is no need to join a group to play the lucky boards at SMC, although it’s a good idea so that you can become alerted of news and offers.

My Strawberry Necklace can be found as a free gift at 1005 , and the Annie Sandals for the Slink flat feet (previously shown by Calleja [HERE]), are still available at Pure Poison as a free group gift (free to join).

Happy Weekend Everyone! I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love the country, though admittedly I’m kinda torn at times. One of the things however that do very much enjoy about country life is the atmosphere. Life is more casual, sometimes it even seems that time it’s self moves at a slower, comfortable pace. The skies seem enormous, and there is a communion with nature that just doesn’t happen in the big city. Considering my conflicting adoration of both country and city life, my wardrobe can sometimes be a mishmash of both worlds. Still, I think I somehow manage to make it work!  I believe this outfit fits into that idea quite well. There’s a little bit of country, with the denim jumper and hair scarf, but I’ve got my city-girl heels on, my makeup is a little bit wild, and my toenails and fingernails are freshly manicured!

Where did I find this stuff you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, just like I’m conflicted about the country versus the city, I’m conflicted about where I like to shop! It seems lately I have an events addiction, and with so many good ones going on, who wouldn’t?! My first stop was The Wild West Fair where I picked up my shoes, my perfect manicure by ZOZ, and this awesome pose by Something New complete with horse and apple! Next I meandered through the N21 event, and while there bagged my hairdo and this adorable necklace. The necklace is by AMAYA and there are several versions with one-word sayings like “Yes” or “Adored”. Mine says “Kiss”, and I think that’s super sweet! My skin is one Love told me about, it’s the current Group Gift at Genesis. I’m so glad she did, it’s just different enough to really be my style! This lovely skin from Genesis has some vampy lipstick and shimmery gold eye-shadow. It also includes appliers for Slink hands and feet as well as Lolas Tango, and Phat/Cute Azz.  Wanting a little extra color in my eye-makeup, I went with something a little different and got this under-eye liner at La Petite Morte! It comes in a fatpack with several different color options, and the basic black. As for my jumper, I found it on the Marketplace!  I sincerely hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Zombies make lovely music to dance to!

If you all can remember, I have ended up in a few spots with zombies, with my first zombie shoot taking place in Dusty Heights (HERE is the link to that post). Would you believe, there is an absolutely gorgeous ballroom, right smack dab in the middle of that place? So of course, when I saw the kinds of gifts Shamic and I were collecting from The Silver Platter Hunt, quite a few formal wear outfits for him and her, well…I thought what better way to initiate Shamic into FabFree blog posts, than to drag him there. We danced to the music of zombie groans and doors being rattled, it was awesome!

ballroom1

Our whole foray into the Silver Platter Hunt, which prompted me to head to a ballroom, started with the lovely Pru sending me a link to the hunt’s blog gift preview page, telling me that there was a nice male skin available at Style by Kira. She was right, of course, and lucky for me, there was a really lovely female skin available for the hunt as well. I am wearing the Style by Kira – Janelle Skin SPH, and Shamic has on the Style by Kira – Anton Skin SPH. Both of these skins will cost you a whole L$1 each. Or, and this is one of the neat features of this hunt, if you do not want to take the time to root out the hunt gifts, all you need to do is find the hunt sign at the store, and the hunt gifts are available there for you without having to search, the catch, these one’s are L$25. So..there are 2 sets of the same gifts, the L$25 ones, are right beside the hunt sign, and the L$1 ones, are hidden somewhere in the store, and will take a little time to find, the choice is up to you. Either way, these skins are well worth the extra time or extra money.

ballroom3

Our formal wear is from Wicked Sin Creations, and they compliment each other so nicely.  I have on the ^WSC^ Opulent *Red/Black* {Mesh} Gown, and Shamic is wearing the ^WSC^ Tuxedo *Red Waist Band* {Mesh}. Both outfits are mesh, with the standard sizes available. Like the skin gifts, you can choose to search for the hunt gift (both male and female gifts are in one object) and only pay L$1, or go to the hunt sign and pay L$25. While there are hints on the hunt’s blog site, the hint for this item is wrong, so I will give you my own hint “Hey Sweet Sugar, Be Mine!”. I just love the matching red colour of my dress and Shamic’s cumberbund, and we look so elegant together :)

The Silver Platter Hunt runs until September 15th, and with a large majority of the stores having either a unisex gift, or both a male and female gift, it’s a great hunt to do together with your honey, or just your male alt…like me :P LOL. I better not let Shamic hear me call him just my male alt, I might hurt his feelings.

OK lovelies, that is it for me, but you all know that I will be back, maybe even show a few other gifts from this hunt. Until then though…TTFN!

Can you salsa to bagpipes?

Hello again all you lovely FabFree readers :) I thought I would give you a wee bit of a break on the dots for this post. What I am not giving you a break on, is great freebies, as I have some I think you will love :)

salsa1

By now, you should all be familiar with B!ASTA, as I know we have shown many wonderful pieces of clothing from there. Well, Bomboloni Freschi, the owner and creator of B!ASTA, is branching out a little, with a new store called La Gazza Ladra {by B!ASTA}. To celebrate the opening of this new store, she has put out a super cute, mesh dress as a free group gift for B!ASTA group members! This beauty is called The Thieving Maggie, and actually, I really like the mash-up of a Scottish tartan texture mixed with a very Latin style dress. Tartan skirt ruffles…so much fun. I really wanted to get a latin type dance pose going for my picture, but alas, in my ever-growing selection of poses, I did not have one. Oh well, the dress didn’t really need it :) The B!ASTA group has a small L$50 fee to join, but this dress alone is worth the fee I think.

salsa2

The other freebie I have for you today is also a group gift, from Maxi Gossamer. These cute daisy printed bangles come in 2 sets, of 2 sizes, the large, which I have on my left wrist, and the small, which I have on my right. These are texture change, with 4 different textures, I’ve included the display picture for you to see all the choices. How nicely do they go with my dress? I love when things work out like that! The group is free to join, and once you do, just go into the notices and grab your bracelets. This is one group I hold on to for sure, you can never have too much jewelry.

MG - Bangles - Painted Daisies

I hope you all have a good night, and an even better day tomorrow…Hump day! Woot! Friday is within sight :) LOL. Until next time, TTFN!!

It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Beautiful&Dangerous_001

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

StoraxTree,Euphoria_001

Pictured above:

Car:  Skull Pump Ride – Red & Black by NR Designs (AGH2 prize/$1L)

Shorts & Tee:  Plaid Cargoes & Tee (mesh) by Beautiful & Dangerous  (AGH2 prize/$1L)

Peace & Love from Lottie Dottie

Afternoon in the Garden

Where has the day gone? It seems like this day has just flown by, at least for me! So I am going to make this short and sweet. While doing a little shopping earlier, I came across this adorable little dress from Osito. Today only you can pick up this fully mesh dress for just $50 lindens as part of the “Hello Tuesday” sales! This halter style dress has a sweet and comfy sundress feel to it. It’s just the sort of thing I’d wear when I wanted to look cute without much effort! To go with my pretty little dress, I picked up an amethyst necklace and matching earrings from EarthStones. These are current group gifts at EarthStones. The pieces are called “Peace & Love” and I really like how sweet and delicate they look. With my outfit together, I of course had to have the perfect manicure to go with it. Nail Me! Has just the thing, these “Lottie Dottie” nails are at a promotional price of just $50 lindens for a limited time. The nails come in a few color variations, and are just too cute to pass up. Head over to Nail Me! and get them while they are still at this awesome price!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
