Ice Bucket Challenge & Fair

Ice bucket

Hope you’re all having a happy weekend! I know I’ve enjoyed mine, though I’m a little bummed it’s coming to an end. To cheer us all up, I’ve got some great news about another event that recently started, and it’s for a good cause too! I know we’ve all seen the Ice Bucket Challenge stuff going around the internet, it’s everywhere. We’ll Second Life has got in on the act too!

Several fantastic designers and group organizers have come together and partnered with ALSA to raise funds and awareness. What is ALSA you ask? ALSA stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. The ALS Association works to raise funds to help fight this disease, create awareness, and help find a cure! For more information, go to http://www.als.org. Now where is the cheer-up part Pru? I know you’re asking! The cheerful part of this is that at the Ice Bucket Fair there are ALS vendors with incredible items , 100% of the proceeds from the ALS vendors goes to the ALSA. Now that’s exciting!

In addition to the worthy cause, there is a lot of fun to be had, several designers have additional items up for sale at great prices. There are also some gachas for all the gacha addicts like me, and the best part, the Ice Bucket Challenge! Yep, you can actually participate in an Ice Bucket Challenge at the Ice Bucket Fair. Sit down, make a face, and dump a bucket of ice cold water on your head all in the name of charity! There is a booth set up for you to take a snapshot as well, so you can capture your best Ice Bucket Challenge moment. Upload your photo to the Ice Bucket Challenge Flickr pool and be entered to win awesome prizes!

I did do a little bit of shopping while quickly checking out the Ice Bucket Fair, and I found a couple of cute things I wanted to show you. Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Velvet Whip and The Little Bone

Velvet Whip Mystery Gacha

Hello Fab Free’r’s I hope you’re having a lovely day! I know I’ve been a little absent this week, I’ve been nursing a little head/chest cold. Not to worry though, I’m starting to feel better! My personal stuff aside, I’m so excited to share these gorgeous items with you!

The Mystery Gacha Fair has started, and there are some incredible designers participating! I purposefully chose to do simple photos because I wanted you to really see how incredible the details are in these jewelry pieces from Velvet Whip. The necklace and the bracelet are just two examples of the Mystery Gacha items from Velvet Whip. There are 4 Rare Necklaces, and 8 commons, along with a mystery rare, all of which are equally stunning!

To go with these lovely pieces of jewelry from Velvet Whip, I picked up the new group gift from Little Bones. This sweetly casual hair includes the fedora as part of the style, and a color change hud with a large variety of pretty pastel shades. The Little Bones gift is called “Hurt” and can be found at he main location.

Last but not least, you might recognize my manicure. This Slink Nail Applier is from the Nail Me! Cart at the Cart Sale currently taking place at Fab Free Headquarters. I liked it so much, I decided to wear it again. This is from the “Heavy Metal” palette and it’s a steal at just $10 lindens, don’t miss out.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Glass Leaf Winter

Glass Leaf Winter 1

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! We are almost to the weekend, who is excited about that!? I know I am! So last post I showed you the hunt gift from Pixy Stix at Rock Your Rack, today I want to show you the gacha dress Pixy Stix has also at Rock Your Rack. There are several patterns to be had, and all of them are really beautiful. This specific pattern is called “Winter” and while I know it’s still a little early for Christmas themed posts, this just screamed holiday party to me! It doesn’t have to be for a Christmas party, I think this dress is really the perfect party dress. To go with my new dress, I picked up the latest group gift at Little Bones. This tousled side-swept hairstyle has been really popular, and I think it looks great with casual looks and dressier attire. Now wouldn’t you know, the perfect manicure to match this dress, and several others from the same gacha, is waiting at Fab Free Headquarters! That’s right, Yobasha has this pretty nail polish set with pretty french tips out for FREE at Fab Free Headquarters. If you’re not a member of the MOCK Cosmetics group, now is a great time to take the plunge, pay the $250 join fee, and get a ton of group gifts handed to you in the notices! One of the 10 + group gifts is this super sexy winged liner in “Black Hat”. If you want to see more of the MOCK group gifts, check out Calle’s post here!

There are 12 different kolala designs to collect, and each design comes in all 4 pieces. Each adorable clutch is rare, while the other accessories are all common. Let’s see if we can’t collect them all as soon as they come out! My super shiny metallic nails are by none other than Frogstar and are on SALE right now at Genre! The whole pack of 4 metallic colours will run you just $L50!

Ready, steady, go!

Vroom vroom! Watch out, Fabbies, because here I come around the corner with a post chock full of awesome! There is a brand spankin new event going on right now called Level Up, and I’m here to speed on by with some of the great cheapie items that you can pick up at the event!

Level Up is an event that happens every 3 months and features some of the grid’s absolute BEST designers, each of which create items to fit a specific theme, but here’s the extra awesome part… The event is video game inspired, and each moth highlights a different type of game! June’s theme is racing games, with the tagline being “Drive it like you stole it!”

ready, steady, go!_001

My whole outfit, and the racing-themed setup all around me, are both chock full of cheapies!

ready, steady, go!_002

While my dress from Katat0nik is NOT a cheapie (it runs $L200 for each style, and there are 4 styles!) it is super adorable, and an event exclusive. This dress is fitted mesh, so if you want it, make sure your viewer is up to date so it can handle it! The cute VW bug purse is an event exclusive AND a cheapie! GFD‘s racing bag comes in 20 different styles, and the gacha is just $L65 to play!

ready, steady, go!_003

I love the snail on my head, don’t you? My racing snail friend is another gacha item, but this time from Tentacio. Each play costs just $L70, and there are 8 common and 2 rare adorable snails to collect!

ready, steady, go!_004

If you HAVEN’T caught gacha fever yet, then maybe these fantastic slink-compatible heels will light a fire under you! Frogstar‘s flame on wedges come in 10 colours, are unrigged, modifiable, and the gacha is only $L50 per play, you can’t beat that for fabulous Slink shoes!

ready, steady, go!_005

And finally, if you’re looking for decor instead of clothes, then Cubic cherry kre-ations has you covered! These super adorable cherry racers are yet another of the gacha items available exclusively at Level up! These come in 6 styles (4 shown above!), are only 1-2 land impact, and the gacha is $L50 to play. This event, and all of its exclusives, speed away on July 5th, so you’d better race over to the venue and shop till you drop… and remember… drive it like you stole it!

Pink Striped Poses Galore!

BehaviourBodyFAC1
Another time sensitive post for you! It is that time at BehaviorBody again, another free Sunday gift. This time it is the BehaviorBody animated model poses set 3. This set includes 12 animated poses, which means, each pose is actually a combination of 2 or 3 poses in 1…that’s a heck of a lot of poses in total! The pictures I have taken are of what you see when you first turn the pose on, they all move into other poses after, but that would be a whole lot of pictures, and then this post would not be very quick :P Oh, and since they are animated, you could even think about putting some of them into your AO as stands. All that for free?? I know, I couldn’t believe it either.

I am sure you are all trying to get into the Arcade right now, but there are great gatcha’s to play at FabFree Headquarters, and they will surely help ease that itchy gatcha finger.

Ok lovelies, that is it for me, I think I am about ready to go sit outside with a nice cool beverage and enjoy the last of my Sunday :) *waves* TTFN!

Fun in the sun? About time!

EcceBellusBikini1
Thought I would do up a little quickie post for all of you fab readers. For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is here, or coming very soon despite all of the rain I’ve been having in my area :P. What does summer mean? Bathing suits of course, and this weekend I got myself a cute mesh suit courtesy of the L$60 Weekend Sale that happens every weekend.  The .:Ecce Bellus:. Fun In The Sun-Flowered bikini pieces are both mesh, and the medium fits my standard medium shape perfectly, I’m not even using an alpha. You have your choice of 6 different patterns, so there should be something for everyone. It really is a great buy at only L$60.

EcceBellusBikini2

Oooh, and, if you are fast enough, my lovely SLink flat feet flipflops are still available just outside the *REIGN store for only L$75. They were only supposed to be that price until midnight last night, being part of The Saturday Sale, but as of 11AM slt today, they were still there!

A Day at the Lake with Chrysalis and Boudoir

Greetings!

A quick post today to let you all know that Chrysalis has now closed their inworld store.  However, you can still purchase her beautiful designs on the Marketplace.  To make shopping a bit easier, for the bargain hunter, Chrysalis has two Marketplace stores….the regular priced Chrysalis and the Chrysalis Attic.  I found this wonderful Margot mesh long dress white in her attic store for only 75L!  This beautiful strapless sheath dress has classic lines and pintuck draping at the hem…finished off with the optional rossette, it is the perfect dress for a wonderful day wandering the countryside or an evening out for dinner and dancing.  You can also find a FREE Chrysalis – Bows & Butterflies dress *Special Gift* in the Chrysalis Attic.
~A Day at the Lake~

I complimented the dress with the [Fairy Tail] Garden jewelry set (group gift/store closed) and an enchanting Spring Fairy Parasol (with animated butterflies), from Boudoir, a Gatcha prize (50L per play) at the entrance to the main store!  My shoes are the Jolie Sandals (beige/Slink flat feet compatible), part of a fat pack I bought from the 50% off sale Pure Poison had this past weekend.  If you missed the 50% sale or if you don’t use Slink feet…you can still benefit from a trip to Pure Poison!  The group is still free to join and there are TONS of FREE goodies at the main store landing point!

Happy Shopping! <3 <3

We Love the Enchantment of Group Gifts!

While I was wandering today I ended up in a store called Junbug. I was delighted to see that they had a group gift available! The group is 100L to join but as an added bonus as a group member, you get 10% off of future purchases! It was the perfect thing to wear on a cool Autumns day through the forest..


.Autumn Cape by Junbug [Free / Group Gift – 100L join fee (10% discount on future purchases)

The beautiful dress worn above is a group gift from Maai and it really is stunning! I love how the designer has made flexi additions to give the dress some movement.


.Lini Dress by Maai [Free / Group Gift - Free to join]

While looking around the Junbug store, I saw a poster for an event called Enchantment. Being the curious Alice that I am, I took the landmark and tumbled down the SLURL-hole. Skipping through the autumn leaves there I came across many a wonderous thing.. and this freebie necklace from House of Rain, which I instantly fell in love with.


.First and Last and Always necklace by House of Rain [Free / Enchantment Gift]
.Maris Head Dress (Silver Rare) by G Spot at We Love Roleplay [Not Free / L$50 a turn]

As you can see I took a quick detour to the realms of the We Love Roleplay event which has lots of discounted items in three buildings, aswell as a gatcha/gift area. It was at this event that I found a 10L$ cheapie box by The Plastik that I thought I would tell you about. There are several different items inside, this outfit is one of them


.Jasmine Hair by Calico @ WLRP [Not Free / L$150L - Discounted @ We Love Roleplay Event]
