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.

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].

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.

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 Dark Fae & Rispetto Designs at The Wash Cart Sale

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

A Little Birdy Told Me…

Snapshot_005
Guess what? :)  A little birdy told me about some awesome gifts and I am going to pass on the good news with you,  here on FabFree!

The other day I was sent a free gift called Iris from the Luziefee Subscribomatic that includes this gorgeous long halter dress as well as the big Jackie O sunglasses!  If you aren’t a current subscriber or missed this gift, you can go to the Luziefee store and subscribe, then check the history.  Have both 1 and 2 delivered, as they are both free gifts!  You can find the Luna Necklace, which is the newest of the free gifts at Pure Poison amongst the plethora of other group gifts.  This group is still free to join.

If you like this classy side bun as much as I do, head down to Pocket Mirrors and pick up the Guadalupe Hair shown here today as a free group gift after joining the free SL Frees & Offers group.

Enjoy your day, Fabulouses! xox

50 Free Hairstyles!

Recently, I had an IM from distraught reader, Itali… who was in a real pickle!  She had deleted her ENTIRE HAIR FOLDER :O (I would have just passed out – like forever!).  That type of event would be catastrophic to a hair whore such as myself and I just felt terrible for her.  While there was nothing I could do about all of her missing hair, her story inspired me to do a post on FREE HAIR…  I have compiled a list of 50 free hair styles (ok, ok… one of them is 1L – don’t  be all “Looooove… “.  Don’t think it ends here – there are several designers across the gird with hair out as free gifts :)  I hope this helps rebuild your inventory some Itali!  xox

Vintage Black Widow

Fabulously Free in SL - Vintage Black Widow, By Love Trill

“I do believe we are lost, Driver. This is not the theatre… Good help is so hard to find.”

The very elegant vintage gown above, bolero and hair piece are all part of The Black Widow hunt prize at Cilian’gel’s 1920’s Boutique called Got Allure Black Gown Set?.  The dress is mesh, so you will need a mesh compatible viewer.  The cost for the hunt prize is 1L and the icon you are searching for is a spider on a skull.

The skin I am wearing is called HoRang and is a free lucky board prize at Mother Goose.

This adorable skin is the latest group gift for March from My Ugly Dorothy.  It features a pale skin tone with teeth and sunshiny cheeks and is just too cute!  The curled semi-updo shown in these photos is made by Pocket Mirrors, which makes such wonderful vintage styles.  You can pick up this sweet hair called Scarlet for free by joining the Pocket Mirrors inworld group.  Both the My Ugly Dorothy group and the Pocket Mirrors group are free to join.

Ok… back to the goodies @ The Wash – The Rosemary Dress in red, shown above is one of the items you can pick up there, as well as the Bessie Dress in Skull print below.

So You Say It’s Your Rez Day?

Wilsons Closet Rez Day

So you say it’s your rez day?  Wilson’s Closet has a beautiful present for you!  Carson showed the gift for men the other day and this is the gift for the ladies.  This gown called Starlight is my favourite design of Marcy’s with the sheer bodice (but not so revealing that you will get kicked out of the ballroom lol), and high neckline.  On your rez day you can head down to Wilson’s Closet and pick this gorgeous gown up in Lavender as a free gift!  A little birdie told me that if you have already had your rez day this month (January 2012), you can send Marcy a notecard and she will honour your request for the gift.  She’s sweet like that :)

Wilsons Closet MM

Another great reason to head to Wilson’s Closet is the True Beauty in Blue Dress above which is currently featured as a Monday Mania item for just 25L.  (Yup… it’s Sunday today, but it’s out a bit early!) The thin double straps that cross in the back are adorable and the colour is so vibrant!

The large gold Tres Circle Earrings I am wearing in this post are a subscribo gift from Hucci that were sent out over the weekend.

Pocket Mirrors

Pocket Mirrors is the designer of the stunning, shiny hairstyles I am wearing in this blog post.  Above, the photo to the left displays Myrtle which is a dollarbie at Pocket Mirrors that comes in a dark, blonde and red shade.  The semi-updo hair in the photo to the right is called Sabriane and is not free, but was too pretty not to share with you.  I am in love with it!
