Time To Relax

Good Morning

Some of my favorite moments in life are when I get to have quiet time with nothing to do and nowhere to be. This new group gift towel wrap from Legal Insanity made me want to run a nice hot bath and relax with a great book! This “towel dress” is a FREE gift for Legal Insanity group members. The Legal Insanity group is FREE to join. I kinda like the idea of somehow making this cute mesh wrap part of an outfit but I just didn’t pull it off. I could also see wearing it over your swimwear as a cover-up. The cute pattern and vibrant colors would be great for the pool or the beach.

Pru is also wearing a FREE group gift from ASO!. The dainty bow around her neck is FREE for ASO! group members, and the group is also FREE to join. This delicate bow is mesh and comes in several colors. I like that it’s simple and feminine, and I think it is a great alternative to a traditional necklace, or even a collar.

Next, I love this sweet face from Mudskin. Right now Mudskin group members can score a Lelutka head applier, and a matching Maitreya (body/hands/feet) applier for the Maitreya Lara body by stalking the lucky letter boards. There are 3 different variations to be had, I was lucky and managed to get the Reina appliers. The applier for the Lelutka heads includes brow and freckle options. So if you wear the Maitreya Lara body and or any of the Lelutka mesh heads, these FREE lucky letter prizes are a must-have. Additionally, the Mudskin group is FREE to join. Please note that the individual skin is not included in these lucky letter prizes, just the mentioned appliers.

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!
