I <3 NY, and I Got Milk!

Blogging soon!

Oh my goodness, how is it Friday already?! It seems like this week has just flown by… probably because I’ve been stuck at home with a sick kid… but enough about that! This cute outfit, which includes leggings, sweater, and boots, is the generous Womenstuff Hunt gift from Hawker’s House. The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31, and there are some truly fabulous gifts available from 200 amazing designers, all for only 1L each. Some designers are even offering exclusive items which you will only be able to find during the hunt. Trust me, this is one hunt you DO NOT want to miss! :-)

This cute updo is a group gift from *Milk* Hair. The group is free to join, and let me just say this: FAT PACK. That’s right, the gift comes in just about every color imaginable! So run… ok, tp… to Milk as fast as you can before you miss this fantastic gift! My fun ring and earrings are Marketplace gifts from .Olive. There is also a bracelet, but I figured it would just hide under my sleeve, so I’m not wearing it (but I did pick it up!). Called Maybe They’re Real, I can’t tell if they look like rocks or some type of reptile skin, but they’re cute – and unusual! – just the same. They also come in a dark gray color with red stones.

Need nails? I thought these appliers from .::Ceiling::. were fun, and they’re only 1L on the Marketplace! Appliers for your toesies are also included. :-D

Blogging soon!

My skin is the lovely Fleur, an new release from Bite & Claw for The Skin Fair. She will be released in the usual B&C 5 tones, but I’m only showing a preview of tones 2 (light) and 4 (dark). I’m typically a fair-skinned girl, but I have to say that tone 4 is really nicely done. There are several make-ups and the usually appliers available for this skin. FWIW, The Skin Fair opened today (March 14), and I’ve been trying to get in all day today with no success. It runs until March 30, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for us all to pay a visit!

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we're CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. :-) My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. :-)

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! ;-)

Nikita in New England

Blogging soon!

What a gorgeous day for a stroll on the newly-opened {Noble} New England sim. You really must head over and check out the autumn beauty! I was kept toasty and warm in my new FA Creations group gift, Nikita. Included are the leggings, sweater, scarf, and handbag. FA Creations gives such generous group gifts… can you believe the group is free to join? :-D

Blogging soon!

I could just sit here all day and relax. ::Sigh:: Anyway, I picked up my cute, leafy earrings at the !Rebel Hope Designs Hug a Pumpkin Hunt. I’m not exactly sure when the hunt ends, but there are 7 pumpkins with great gifts inside, so don’t miss your chance to grab them! My manicure is the November group gift from EZ’s, and the HUD comes with 5 different designs.

Hair Fair 2013: Bandana Day is July 28th!

Bandana Day at FabFree

The last day of Hair Fair 2013 is drawing near, and with that comes Bandana Day, the day we remove our hair to show we care, and instead wear the bandanas we have purchased at Hair Fair. There are bandana booths on all four sims, and each purchase of 50L is donated to Wigs for Kids. The community of Second Life all come together each year to create these lovely bandanas; there are so many really beautiful ones this year, all created around the wonderful mesh bandana that Mel Vanbeeck created for us.

Many thanks to the bloggers of Fab Free who joined me to show their support for this worthy cause. They are not only fabulous bloggers with a terrific fashion sense, but also really nice people. (Unfortunately Clar was ill and unable to join us for the photo, but she was with us in spirit!) :-D

I hope you will stop by a bandana booth and show your support, too!

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Harbour Sim

Hey fabulous readers! As promised, here are some of the great freebies you can find at Hair Fair 2013. This batch is from the Harbour sim.

Blogging Soon!

The gift from Analog Dog (0L) is this luscious Mono hair, which you get in EVERY color! You have to “buy” each color pack separately, but at 0L each, you can’t complain! A few days ago, I showed you my favorite red color, but here I thought I’d shake things up a bit with “fairy.” :-) This sexy crop top is the gift from Heartless (1L), available in standard mesh sizes.

Hair – Analog Dog Mono (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Top – Heartless Laced Crop Top (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Blogging Soon!

On the left is the gift from Tameless Hair (0L). Dori Naturals is HUD-controlled (click on the hair), an comes in 16 different colors ranging from blonds to blacks, and the hairpin also changes colors. The gift from Clawtooth is on the right (1L), and it comes in red, black, and wheat.

Hair – Tameless Hair Dori Naturals (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair – Clawtooth Dear Heart (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Blogging Soon!

I hadn’t tried Baiastice hair before… in fact, I didn’t know they were making hair! But several hairs are available at Hair Fair, including this gift updo (1L). Buy the gift listed as “Color Demos,” and you’ll find this style in 35 different colors!

Hair – Baiastice Color Demos (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Blogging Soon!

Lots of gifts here to show you! On the left is the gift hair from Tableau Vivant (oL). This one is unisex, and comes in a gajillion colors and dip-dyes. Note that the gift only includes the long hair on the right side of my head. You can either add a hairbase (not included) or go with the 1/2-bald look. I could not find any hairbases at the Tableau Vivant main store, so I added one from CaTwA and edited the color to match. My hair on the right is the gift from (red)Mint (1L). It only comes in this color, but a version for the more “well-endowed” ladies is also included. Auxiliary is offering two clothing gifts this year: the Owl Love tank on the left, and the My Deer minidress on the right. Standard mesh sizes of each are included.

Hair – Tableau Vivant Constantine (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Tank – Auxiliary Slouchy Tank Owl Love (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair – (red)Mint goodyHair (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Dress – Auxiliary My Deer Mini (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Blogging Soon!

If you like “hat hair,” you’ll love these two. :-D On the left is the gift from Gauze (0L), which comes in 8 different colors of hair. The scarf only comes in this green color, unless there’s a way to change it that I couldn’t find. The unisex gift from Ink (0L), on the right, only comes with the blonde hair and blue hat, but is cute, nonetheless.

Hair – Gauze Matey (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair – Ink SKC Gift for Hair Fair 2013 (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Blogging Soon!

These last two are gifts from Alice Project (oL). Erika and Erika II look very similar, but Erika is actually an eensy bit shorter than Erika II. The gift pack comes with 5 copies of each, and when you read the directions, you’ll understand why; you can make 5 copies in pretty much any color imaginable with the included HUD. Be sure you read the directions, though… I can’t emphasize this enough. And choose your colors with care because once you hit the “apply” button, the color is yours forever – there are no “do overs” (I tried)!

Hair – Alice Project Erika and Erika II (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Head over to the Harbour sim at Hair Fair 2013 to collect these wonderful gifts! For a map and list of designers, click here. And don’t forget that your purchases benefit Wigs for Kids.

Spangles and Bangles and Fireworks… Oh My!

Blogging Soon!

I so wanted to post this yesterday, but RL 4th of July family stuff took priority. I even wound up taking in an afternoon matinee of “Monsters University,” so hey, who can complain? Anyway, this amazing, patriotic ensemble is the latest group gift from Chop Zuey at The Sky Boutique. It includes the mesh pants, fringy top, AND all the jewelry… except for the ring, which you can find as a group gift at the main store. The group is 350L to join, and absolutely worth every Linden. Gifts are fabulous and plentiful. Your group tag for the main store also works in The Sky Boutique, so you don’t need to join another group.

Blogging Soon!

Today I’m wearing the July Group Gift skin from WoW Skins. I have to say that I’ve really been liking their skins lately, and I especially appreciate when designers put out gift skins with red eyebrows. The gift skin comes with and without cleavage, and with appliers for Lolas and Lush, as well as Slink hands and feet. My nail appliers are a dollarbie from *Hopscotch*, and includes both fingernails and toenails, and comes in 4 All-American designs. These gorgeous eyes are the July group gift from IKON. If you’d like a pair, you have until July 7th to pick them up. Oh, and if you like my hair by D!va, you have about 1 more day to pick it up on sale at Collabor88. Two styles are included.

Happy belated American Independence Day!

Carmen’s Escape

chopzuey2_001f

Chop Zuey owner Belle Roussel has recently opened a new Chop Zuey Sky Boutique, which not only features gorgeous jewelry, but also stunning, couture clothing. I finally wandered over there a few days ago, and boy was I surprised: this beautiful dress, fascinator hat, AND jewelry were set out as an opening gift for Chop Zuey group members! The Chop Zuey group is 350L to join, but the gifts… THE GIFTS! If you are already a member of the Chop Zuey main store group, you do not have to join another group; just put your tag on and grab your new dress! :-D

chopzuey5_001f

And how much do I love this hair? Let’s just say, I think I’m going to be wearing it for a long time!  I’d been seeing a lot of chatter in the feeds about a store called Tram, and since I liked what I was seeing, I decided to take a look for myself. I’m so happy I did because this lovely hair is set out as a free group gift! I’m not usually a short-hair girl, except when I find a style I love, and… LOVE! :-D I’m also still wearing the new Lulu skin from Glam Affair, which you can pick up in the gacha machines at The Arcade until the end of June.

One last thing: You may already have heard that Glitterati Poses is closing its doors. :-( Until June 30th, everything will be either 50% off or 100L, whichever is cheaper. Don’t miss this opportunity to pick up some fabulous poses at an amazing price!

Serena’s Tips for New Residents: Joining a Group

We were all new SL residents, once upon a time. Perhaps it was many years ago, or possibly even yesterday. If you’re lucky, you have a friend to mentor you and help you find your way. If you’re not lucky, you have to figure it all out for yourself. I fell into the latter category, and let me tell you, the learning curve was steep. Even after a couple of decades of programming experience, it still took me time – and several books! – to figure things out. So now I try to help out new residents whenever I can, and this will be the first in what I hope will be a series of Tips for New Residents.

I was chatting with a new resident a few days ago, telling her that she really should go to a particular store and pick up the latest group gift. Unfortunately, she didn’t know what I was talking about. Seems she did most of her shopping on the Marketplace, and had never been to an in-world store to join a group. We’re always talking about “group gifts” here at FabFree, and it occurred to me that there may be new readers out there who also don’t know how to join a group. Sooo… let me explain! (For you “old-timers” who already know this, please feel free to skip ahead to find out what I’m wearing.) ;-)

tips_join5f

Since I’m wearing the latest group gift skin from HUIT, I decided to head over to their store to show you how YOU can pick it up too.

Step 1: Go to the in-world store of your choice. Locate the “group joiner.” These typically have the store logo on it or somewhere nearby, and the word JOIN. Left-click on the JOIN button.

tips_join_winf

Step 2: After you click the button, you will probably get a pop-up notice to open your chat window (that’s the place where you talk to other residents). The chat button is located at the bottom left of your screen, unless you moved it (sorry, I cut mine off in this picture). Click the hyperlink, which probably has the group name, or says “click this link” or something similar. A box like this one will pop up. If the group is free to join, it will say “free” next to the “Join Now” button. If there is a join fee, you will see it on the bottom right where it says “Cost to join” (if you choose to join a group that is not free, you will need to confirm in another pop-up that it is ok to pay the join fee). This group is free to join, and has a cost of 0L. Click the “Join Now” button. You should get a notice in the chat window stating that you have been added to the group.

tips_join_ggf

Step 3: You should now be wearing your new group tag. You can see mine right over my head, next to my little birdie friend. With your tag on, head over to the group gift vendor and left-click the vendor to get your gift. VOILA! Your gift should appear in your inventory, either in a folder (probably with the store name) or in your Objects folder. :-D

tips_join12f

Ok, now for what I’m wearing. :-) You already know by now that the skin I’m in is the free group gift skin from [HUIT]. I’m also wearing the Kiana outfit from {Liv-Glam}, which includes the mesh jacket and jeans, and tank, and is on sale for 49L for Secret Wednesday. I love these “skullie” boots from ::Duh!::, which I managed to pick up for free in their lucky chair. And my Berry Slushie blue hair is a free gift from a new-to-me store called [Raspberry]. You get the full “Aristocrat Pack” of Chai Anxiety, full of a whole lotta fun (and regular) colors. Enjoy!
