Part Of Your World

American Bazaar are continuing their 4th birthday celebrations and more great free items have appeared on the gift tables outside the store from some very generous designers who are helping with the festivities! I have already shown some of the gifts in this post here so be sure to check that out too!

There are lots of gifts that come with applier HUDS so if you wear breast enhancements then you will find some great additions to your wardrobe! Of course if you don’t wear them then all the items are workable for you too! The Dat Titteh top by Hollipocket is one of those that looks just as cute on mesh enhancements as without though it comes with applier support for Lola Tango and Lush. I kind of like the contrast of the bright blue with my Ariel Red hair! My shoes are the Singapore Cream shoes for SLink High Feet by Essenz. These are amazing shoes to have in your collection as they will go with pretty much anything so be sure to pick these up!

Untitled

The Lace Corset by Biddy is another great top that comes with applier support for Lola’s, Phat Azz and Banned. I think it goes really well with the Fitted Mesh Skinny Pants that are by American Bazaar. The pants arent part of the celebration gifts but I bought them so I could show the tops to you. They are very reasonably priced and are definately going to be ones I wear very often!

Untitled

I am a sucker for a cute pastel dress and I just adore the Azura Dress (Coral) by LadyLuck! The Dulce Beret by Ariskea is the perfect little addition to wear with the dress and looks so adorable!

Untitled

My hair and skin in this picture are two great items available at the new round of The Arcade Gacha! The Skye II SKin by Glam Affair is so pretty with such expressive eyes. The tintable eyebrows that I am wearing are also included! I am completely in love with the gorgeous Ocean hair by Olive! Their gacha contains some amazing colourways with the option of winning them in this Ocean style or another style called Belle.. hmmm.. I wonder who that could be modelled after?

My nails are the gorgeous Princess Glitter Nails by Free Bird and are their prize in the Enhance My Avatar Hunt. The prize costs L$5 to purchase! Pink glittery nails make Tiana very happy!

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.

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!

Introducing Shamic Ember, Calle’s newly male av!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce my original SL av to you, the pre-Calle av, when I couldn’t figure out how to remove the torch from my hand at Welcome Island…remember that dang torch? LOL. Anyways,  this is Shamic Ember, and while he did not start off as a he, I wanted to be able to show off some of the great men’s things you can find around the grid, so voila…the magic of SL allowed me to change Shamic’s gender :) Then, all he needed to do was make a few stops, and I think he turned out pretty good. Let me tell you what he got.

comfycouch1

I’m going to start off with the skin. 7 Deadly s{K}ins  is one of those great skin shops that dabbles in both female and male skins, and lately has had many free group join opportunities. Shamic was lucky enough to get into the group during the last free join, and had his pick of quite a few group gifts. The one he is wearing is the August group gift. If any of you male readers out there have gotten yourselves the SLink hands and feet for guys, this skin has those appliers included! This skin is free for group members, but the join fee, as of this post, is L$200. As I said though, there have been an awful lot of free join opportunities lately, so keep your eyes open, you never know, but, with the multitude of back group gifts you can get right now, L$200 is still a great deal.

comfycouch_004

As this is Shamic’s official introduction, he thought he should dress up. Lucky for him, when he joined the MENStuff group, and headed over to the gift lounge, he found the perfect t-shirt…it has a tie! Tie’s totally say dressed up, right? Even if it is just a texture on a t-shirt :P This free group gift is from alpha lab, and is a mesh, materials ready shirt, in all the standard sizes as well as a fit mesh version. Now, it is supposed to be texture change, and did come with a HUD, but it was having script issues, so until I hear back from the creator about it, consider it only available with the white tie pattern. Hey, it is still a great find, working HUD or not. The MENStuff group is only L$50 to join, but there are many group gifts from different designers available, so it is totally worth the fee.

comfycouch2

I could not let him wander around without pants, so lucky for Shamic, Nightmare Designs is currently participating in the Anarchy Hunt and has a great outfit as their L$1 hunt prize. Of the outfit, he is wearing the mesh pants and Doc Marten Boots, but there is also a pair of mesh, hanging suspenders and a mesh tank top. All the mesh pieces come in the standard sizes, and the Doc Martens are materials ready. You are looking for a little Anarchy A symbol, and the hint is ‘Why is there graffiti on my wall?’, oh, and there is also a gift for the ladies as well, so everyone should check it out.

Before we end this post, I wanted to quickly mention the cute couple pose couch we are on in that first picture. I wasn’t going to let Shamic do this first post alone, so I needed a pose for both of us to be in, and while searching the multitude of couples poses on the Marketplace, I found this great one. The couch is from OMFG Poses, and is called Relax. It comes with the poses and is totally modifiable to allow you to adjust until you fit together perfectly. At only L$1, it is a great addition to anyone’s pose collection.

Alrighty, that is it for us. What do you all think of Shamic? I think he is going to be great, I may even let him pose on his own next time! LOL. So, until next time, TTFN from the both of us *waves*

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals, Originally blogged [HERE]

The Second Life Frees & Offers group (SLF&O) recently sent out a notecard listing all the deals available at participating stores right now, and there are some great free items for men available on the list this time around.   The SLF&O group is free to join and you need to be wearing that group tag to claim your gift at each of the stores.  In addition to the free-to-members gifts, the group gets regular notices from participating merchants about other offers in their shops.  The free gifts put me in an outdoor mood, so I went over to the It All Starts with a Smile sim to take these pictures for you.

This first outfit includes the free SLF&O group mesh racer tank top by [AP.PAREL], perfect for a hot summer day or any day at the beach.  I’m wearing it with my tried and true, available-to-everyone musician male jeans from my inventory library.  My shoes are Duh!’s canvas loafers in tan, just $25L from Duh!.  These nicely detailed loafers are available in several colors, each for the same low bargain price.  The pose in this picture is one of the “Dangerous” pose set, which is the free SLF&O gift at  ~Just Posing~.  There’s also a more female-looking set of poses included in the gift.

[AP.Parel]SL F+O_001

My second outfit shows a versatile mesh “Fred” Top in red, the SLF&O free gift at Glam Dreams.  This shirt is something you can use year-round, so it’s a must-have in your wardrobe.  The pose in this picture is one of a free SLF&O set you can find at [Kikay].

Gizza June GG_003

Now in case you think I don’t look quite like myself in these pictures, you’re right.  Curves Shapes and Skins is offering combinations that include a shape and a skin, one for men and one for women in it’s current SLF&O gift package, and I’m showing you the “Boys” gift.  The hair I’m wearing is Mario in black, which I’ve blogged before but which is still available for free to SLF&O group members at Pocket Mirrors.  And my eyes are Mayfly’s Deep Honey Hazel Eyes, available for free at Fabfree Station.

Gizza June GG_004

So get out there and pick up all these great gifts while they’re available, and don’t forget to look around the shops and give these generous merchants a bit of business too.

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Shown above:

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Shown above:

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent - ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)

The Wash Cart Sale as some good stuff for men in addition to all the goodies for the ladies, and all at bargain prices.  I was pleased to find that one of my favorite stores, Rispetto Designs, is back in SL after having been closed for about a year, and has a small men’s shop on The Wash sim and  a cart in this month’s cart sale.  Designer Khayman Karlsvalt’s Amour & Rispetto Designs cart is selling one of my favorite summer outfits for just $10L – the Giretto tank top, roll-up shorts and waist-tie sweater.  You get both a black and a white tank top with the outfit, and it’s great for the beach or just hanging out.

Next up is the men’s hoodie and cargo shorts that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart.  The mesh hoodie comes in both a t-shirt version and an open, bare-chested look.  Dark Fae’s black mesh cargo pants complete the look with either version of the hoodie, but the pants can be worn by themselves as a board-shorts swimsuit as well.  The hoodie and the shorts are each a mere $10L at the Dark Fae Cart.

The hair I’m wearing with both outfits is Mario in black, the May group gift from Pocket Mirrors.  Pocket Mirrors specializes in retro and old-time hairstyles for men and women, and it’s another favorite store of mine that has been off the grid for sometime but is now back with a new store.  It’s well worth a visit.

ImageAnd finally, if you’re curious about the little piece of paradise in the background of these photos, you should check out the Arabian Oasis of Love, also available at The Dark Fae Cart at The Wash Cart Sale.  For just $10L you get your own beach or desert oasis complete with palm trees, fountain, and animated cuddle rug with pillows.  There are nine pg cuddle poses in the rug, many of which are suitable for relaxing as a single, and the package contains both a full-sized version and a petites-sized version of the oasis and rug.
