Lighting The Way

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! It’s time to get your 7Seas Fishing Rods out again and head to the VIP Lounge, because Sn@tch has a new 20 piece Fish For This Prize to collect! For the next couple of weeks you can try your luck on reeling in pieces of the New Year Grab Bag!  I hadn’t even opened all of the bags yet when I came across #6 and wanted to jump right into it and show it off to you!  I can hardly wait to dive back in and see what else is in the grab bag set, because judging on the first few I opened, I’m going to say it’s a great haul!

If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch.  Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too!  No bait is required.

Lucky #6

Within the 20 piece set, #6 is the dazzling gold formal gown called Rhona Sequin (Gold), and I am displaying it today.  This dress is beautifully textured and sparkles when the light hits it.

Sizes included:

  • Mesh XS-XL + Alpha layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

ps.  Not my dog!  Honest.

Another Auld Lang Syne

It's Gau GG

We drank a toast to innocence…

I’ve decided to spend my New Year’s Eve at home, away from the parties the noise, and the revelry.  But I am celebrating with a few bottles of champagne and ringing in the new year in the latest group gift from *It’s Gau*. The FREE Happy New Year Shirt  is available to members and the group is FREE to join! I also snagged a pair of  Skinny Blue Jeans, another FREE group gift from *It’s Gau* while I was there.

We drank a toast to now…

And finally, I promise this is the last item from Free Dove for a while… (There was so much stuff!) I found the Stars Camel Sneakers by Shoe-Ddiction at Free Dove. I think I’ll just sit here and remember friends long gone and look forward to my new SL adventures in the coming year.

♫ Just for a moment I was back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And, as I turned to make my way back home
The snow turned into rain ♫

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/30/2016 – Beloved Jewelry

Beloved JewelryHello There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and we know what that means: Fab Free Designer Friday! This weeks post is dedicated to Beloved Jewelry. I have to tell you, it’s been quite a day of blunders for me today. I actually had an entire post written and photos taken of what I thought was the Beloved Jewelry main store, only to find out that I’d been at their satellite store the whole time.  If Love hadn’t come to help me “find” the Beloved Jewelry Fab Free exclusive gift, I would have been in big trouble. My whole post would have been about the right shop, but wrong location! Needless to say, I have it all sorted out and Love probably got a good laugh!

My mishap aside, the Beloved Jewelry store is really elegantly set up with a grand desk at the entrance. On the desk you’ll find a little black box with a FREE Beloved Jewelry group gift, and a second group only vendor that will allow you to purchase a box full of previous group gifts. Just below these fantastic gifts, you’ll also see 3 group exclusive group gifts for other groups including the Fabulously Free group gift blogged previously by Astrid. Now I am getting a little ahead of myself. I got distracted by all the fabulous gifts. The Beloved Jewelry store has a wide range of gorgeous jewelry that ranges in style from casual to formal. You’ll even find some beautiful shoes to suit your formal wear needs. Most of the jewelry is for the ladies only, however the shop does have an entire section dedicated to wedding jewelry and bridal sets which of course include male sizes. If you’re looking for a gift for someone you care for, or even a gift just for yourself, you’ll want to stop through Beloved Jewelry. As you browse through the store you’ll even find specials and discounted items for shopping events. Just look closely at the signage throughout the store, everything is clearly marked.Dollarbies As you’re browsing and hopefully shopping, you may want to take note of the wall behind the front desk area. The back of that wall is where you’ll find the Beloved Jewelry dollarbie section. As you can see from the above photo there are a lot of beautiful jewelry sets to choose from in a wide range of styles.  These items are all no transfer so they aren’t meant for gifting, but rather would be a lovely and inexpensive way to treat yourself. I sincerely hope you’ll take a moment to check out Beloved Jewelry, and don’t forget to pick up all the awesome gifts while you’re there.

Life is a Highway

On the road again...

I Can’t Drive 55

I finally had enough of the cold and snow and decided to take a drive in my new car.

I hadn’t been out driving on the Mainland roads for quite a while, and let me tell you, it is not for the faint-hearted. In one trip, I saw everything from the ridiculous to the… well, more ridiculous. I passed a WWII-era airbase floating several meters off the ground, a seriously overcrowded breedables farm, a “Kittycat Whorehouse” (for humans? cats? humans dressed as cats?), and a giant baby with Donald Trump’s head holding the Scales of Justice. I have no idea what that last one was all about, but somebody is clearly trying to send a message, LOL! 😯

If you’re looking for somewhere to drive, be sure to check out the Second Life Road Network Directory for maps and suggested routes. I did most of my driving on Routes 8 and 9, and there are plenty of Rez Zones (places to rez your vehicle) along the way.

Unfortunately, sim crossings still take much of the fun out of driving; once you finally get going, you’re tossed up into the air, underground, or into the water, before jarringly arriving on the road on the other side. Another hazard to watch out for is accidentally driving onto private land with super-speedy-object-return and having your vehicle zapped out from under you. DOH!

Be careful out there, folks!

Little Deuce Coup

I stopped for gas – and a quick selfie – on this lovely sim called West of the Rain. It’s not a large sim, but it’s extremely detailed and worth a visit!

My look was inspired by this fabulous leather jacket, which is the latest free group gift from BUENO. You can wear the jacket with or without the little shirt that says “Naughty is the New Nice” (which I think may be my mantra for 2017), and it comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies, as well as a “fitted” version.

I added the free Absence of Fear jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich (previously blogged by Love and Pru), and the Lacey Choker dollarbie gift from CHAIN. The choker is resizable and comes in both black and white (changeable via HUD).

SIDE NOTE: Since there was no Maitreya version included in the BUENO gift, I decided to switch over to my Slink Physique body. I had heard that Slink recently updated their mesh bodies, so I popped over to the store to pick up the new version. To be honest, I hadn’t worn my Slink body in a very long time because the HUD made me crazy, and I didn’t feel that there were enough alpha cuts, making the body difficult to wear with many designs. But I am happy to report that the updated body has many more alpha cuts, and the new HUD is split up into sections, no longer cramming everything onto one, crowded screen. If you own a Slink body, be sure to head over to a redelivery terminal at the in-world store to pick up the updated version. 🙂

 

On the road again...

Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Shoot, there’s my phone again. Probably Carson needing a ride. I’ll just let it go to voicemail.

I’ve been having such a blast driving my new Bentley Supersport! I picked it up as a free group gift at Sydney City, and I have to say that it is really well done, not to mention FUN!

Both doors and the trunk open and close, the headlights turn on and off, and the dashboard is nicely detailed. The engine makes a cool vroom vroom sound, the exhaust you see in the photo was not photoshopped, but actually comes out of the car when you drive! There are a ton of other options that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet, so be sure to click on the car to get the full menu. Note that the car weighs in at a hefty 69 LI, so you may not want to park it or use it as decor unless you have plenty of available land capacity.

My apologies to the lady people I ran over, and thank goodness the bus that hit me sustained more damage than I did. 😉

BTW, I’m pretty sure that Soylent Green is people.

Safe With You

westendffgroupgift

Hi there Fabulouses!  Carson (aka Muscles – rawr) was kind enough to take one for the team and snuggle up to me for a bit so I could get a snapshot to show off the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift that has been generously donated by [ west end ] .  Normally on FabFree you see us showing off free clothing or home items, but today what we are actually showing you is the pose!

About the pose…

The [ west end ] Safe With You Couples Pose is very well made with natural positioning, and is modifiable so that you can adjust the pose balls around making a good fit.  This pose would be fab for bloggers, photographers or anyone wanting to capture a cozy moment with someone special!  If you’d like a free copy of this beautiful embrace, simply adjust your Fabulously Free in SL group tag above your head and TP to [ west end ] to obtain one!

Carson’s Take

While Carson was waiting for me to make my bazillion photography adjustments to get my one and only shot, he managed to snap a few photos as well that show off different angles of the pose… evidently before I even had a chance to get my lipstick on or his vest off (and never mind why I needed his vest off….  There was interference!)!

Below is one of his photos featuring a full body shot, and if you’d like to know what Carson is wearing, you can see his credits [HERE].

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

Old Town_002

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

Simply Irresistible

Prey - Men's Vest Duh! Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers JZ- Mens Classic Blue Jeans -

The Love Meter says….

… That I’m “Irresistible“. I was sure it was going to say “Naughty“, but that was apparently meant for someone else. I stopped by Prey and by joining the group for FREE, I was able to get the Men’s Vest as a FREE group gift. I’m still wearing the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men that I showed [HERE]. I am also wearing the FREE Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers I picked up at Free Dove that were provided by Duh!  

Put a Ring On In It

While I was at Free Dove, I also picked up the FREE Unisex Black Trim Diamond Stud Earrings by Glint. That just added a little more sparkle to my already irresistible look. I wonder if I can break this machine?
