Feeling the Essences of Mimi….in a wheat field??

So, one of the things I love about SL, you can walk around in heels anywhere, and not worry about how easy or difficult it will be depending on terrain or flooring! I found myself surrounded by wheat fields and water while wandering around today, and despite wearing some killer platforms, it did not matter. I thought I would pretend to be a super model posing in a really odd location that has nothing to do with what I am wearing. LOL!

mimiessence1

Before wandering around a wheat field, I wandered into Mimi’s Choice. If you have never been there, it is a gathering of some of the best stores in SL, all in one place. Best thing about it is, there is a Mimi’s Choice group, and several of the stores have placed out group gifts for those Mimi members. I’m showing off 2 items for you. The first is the gorgeous Leslie dress from Zanze. When you hit the picture of this dress, you are given a hud that allows you to have the standard  sized mesh dress you need delivered to you, and then serves as a colour changer. It’s really handy, since you only need to have the one size you wear, and do not need to get the others if you don’t want to. You have 3 other colour choices for the dress, so you are sure to find one you like. The second item, from Chop Zuey this time, which is conveniently located right across from Zanze, is the eye-catching Black Rose Rattler Cuff Bracelet. You actually get 3 of these bracelets when you click on their gift sign, each with a different design for the main stone. The one I am wearing is based on an ed hardy design. This is not a bracelet for those of you who like delicate and dainty! LOL. The Mimi’s Choice group is free to join, and make sure you have a good look around the 4 buildings, as there are loads of other group gifts scattered throughout, including men’s gifts!

I know you are eyeing up my skin. I would be if I were you, but then I am a skin nut :P I am wearing the oh-so lovely Quinn from Essences, and she is available at the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion, for only L$70. You have your choice of the Medium 2 tone that I am wearing, and a paler tone. I love the pale yellow shade of the eyeshadow, combined with the almost-bare lips, so soft and pretty!

OK, that’s it for me, I gotta see if I can find my way out of this field. IDK how I even end up in these places sometimes :) . The fun of SL!! Until next time, TTFN!

A little bit of birthday magic in India

I just love the Indian culture, especially the clothing! All the beautiful colours, with bold patterns. Heaven for a girl like me.

india1

So how excited do you think I was when I saw a picture of the new group gift Saree from AnaLee Balut? The ALB PREMA saree mesh dress is absolutely gorgeous, and best of all, it’s free! You need to find the LAMU group joiner at the store first, and then once you join for free, you need to head HERE, as this group gift is in a different area. The dress is one piece mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. The lovely little forehead jewelry you see better in a picture below, is also part of this gift. What you can’t see are my shoes. There is a pair of shoes included, in a SLink flat version, and a standard SL av foot version too.

india3

The lovely jewelry set I chose to go with, as no Indian outfit is complete without jewelry, just so happens to be in one of the FabFree 7th birthday cupcakes set out at FabFree HQ! This elegant necklace, earrings and bracelet set was generously donated by Chop Zuey, and I think it really goes nicely with my saree, it even has the same sort of look as the forehead jewelry. This gift, along with more than 50 others, is free, you just have to find it.

Now, I am sure you are wondering about the beautiful skin I am wearing.  It is the current group gift from Pink Fuel, the group is L$250 to join, you just need to go into the notices to get it. The darker tone is Hazel, and the lighter tone is Peach. As Mochi Milena, the owner/creator of Pink Fuel, said in the notice this was sent out in, the makeup palette on these skins is a little bit different from her usual style. If you are familiar with  Pink Fuel skins and makeups at all, you know that she likes to go with brighter and more youthful looking makeups. The lovely brown tone to this makeup is definitely a bit older looking, but don’t worry, older does not mean old :P In the pictures, the bigger picture is how I would wear this skin after a little magic (which I will show you below), with the 2 smaller pictures showing how the skin is, which is with slightly lighter than I prefer eyebrows. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all. I adore these skins :)

india4

What is the magic I mentioned? Well, both Pru and I recently showed you a few of the group gifts that were sent out in the MOCK Cosmetics group a few days ago, but there were so many, that we barely made a dent in them. My magic is one of the other gifts that was sent out. It’s called [mock] Tintable Brow Out experiment secret menu item (so, just in case this is actually supposed to be secret, we’ll keep it just between us ;) ) There are 2 versions, the one I am using, which starts out with a pale skin-tone colour, and a non-human version, which starts out white. This is a makeup layer, so, you add it from your inventory, and as you can see in the pictures, it will cover up the eyebrows on the skin you are wearing. You then have to edit that makeup layer to change the colour. While it can be a bit tricky, it is not impossible. If you look closely at the 3rd picture, it is not seamless, with so many skin designers out there, it would be impossible for it to be, but…it comes pretty dang close, looking like it is just shading on your face around the natural hills and valleys of your eyebrow area. Add your own makeup layer eyebrows, and voila…my eyebrows are now the ones I normally wear only on skins that come with a no-brow version. I think this is great for those of you who like wilder colours of hair. If you can find eyebrows that are the same colours, you can use any skin you want and still have them match. This one gift alone, for me, is well worth the L$250 join fee for this group.

OK lovelies, That is it for my Indian Inspiration post. This is why I love SL, there are so many people from all over the world in our little virtual world, so many cultures for you to experience that you might not otherwise have a chance to encounter. I hope you enjoyed my trip as much as I did. Until next time, TTFN!

Chop Up The Zuey, I’m FaMESHed!

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! Today I would like to show you the ladies group gift at FaMESHed!  Valentina E. is sponsoring the ladies group gift for this round of FaMESHed and it’s a very pretty mesh (of course! lol) Celine Jacket in the shade of ocean.  I liked this jacket so much that I headed to the Valentina E. mainstore and picked up the matching Celine Pencil Skirt for 185L, but you could put it with another skirt or a pair of trousers just as easily.  The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so check it out!

After I had my Jacket and Skirt it was time to accessorize, so I TPed over to Chop Zuey where my friend Kimmie told me they had a beautiful pair of Amour Delicata Earrings out as their Fabulously Free offer (priced at 0L).
Snapshot_002What would be better to finish off my look than a group gift skin? Nothing!! So I found one :) Morphine has this beautiful Nadine skin in two makeup variations as shown below as their September Group Gift.  To obtain this group gift, you will need to  make a purchase in the shop to be auto invited into the group.

Happy Birthday American Bazaar!

American Bazaar is celebrating their 4th birthday in SL and from 1st – 6th of September there will be lots of things happening from free gifts and group gifts to discounted items! Right now at the landing point, there are heaps of free gifts from other designers who are helping to celebrate! Today I am going to show you some.. Im not sure if the gifts are going to be there until the 6th so be sure to get there as soon as possible if you see something you like!

The Dark Body by PANIK is the main focal point of the first picture with the awesome Rose Shoes for SLink High Feet by The Candy Shop adding some pretty spectacular glitz. The Rose Shoes are not free but are L$1 to buy! There are others available too! I added the Lolita Shades by Luxe to give the outfit a bit of a cuter look. The Moon Crystals Earrings and Necklace by Chop Zuey add a bit more sparkle while the Nautical Wristbands by add a little more colour.

Untitled

In this picture you can see another length of earring and necklace from the The Moon Crystals set by Chop Zuey. There are three lengths in all and it comes in both black and white.. which incidently, so does The Lace Top by MoDANNA. Here I am showing the black version. This also comes with Tango appliers!

Untitled

Lastly I am showing you the Snug Sweater by sexZ. This looks very cosy and warm and of course being pink I love it! This top also comes with Tango appliers.

There are several other items available at the birthday celebration which I will show you very soon! So check back!

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 :)

ballroom2

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!
