With such a massive world to explore like Second Life, it’s hard to keep up with all the Hunts and fairs and events happening all over the place. Happily, I stumbled across one I had never seen before and it turned out to be a bonanza of gifts and awesome shopping!

The Beauty Sales Event is a monthly event opening on the 21rst of the month and closing again on the 11th.  Since I’m new to this event I don’t know if each round is so packed full of gifts or if this is a special occasion. But I gleefully bounced around the booths picking up allll the free gifts.

Like this simply gorgeous sweater from Hilly Haalan. Most of you know Hilly Haalan is a major designer on Second Life and with clothes like the ‘Jazzy Sweater’ you will see why. This sweater is so perfectly made you can zoom in and still see details and there’s the perfect fit, even when moving around. Plus, and here is where I get all giddy, you get a HUD with 25 choices to change the color of the main sweater, the cuffs and trim, the buttons, the leather bits around the buttons, and even the cords holding the buttons! That is a LOT of choice! There’s also a resizable scarf with 25 choices of color/patterns as well. A-maze-balls!

The Beauty Sales Event still has about 2 weeks to go so you have some time to get over there but don’t miss it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a coupe other gifts to show off ’cause I couldn’t pick just one.

Hey there, FabFree! I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful time and ate alllll the good stuff! I sure did! And we have leftovers for days.  Of course, today was Black Friday here in the real world. I’m still stuck in quarantine here in New York but I’m sure some folks went out and got those deals.

I stayed in and got a great deal too! And didn’t risk messing with the Covid. I picked up this super chic little plaid dress from Pink Mango Fashion for free! Well.. free or 10L depending on how you look at it. This is the ‘Jolene’ mini dress and it’s the free gift for the TeleportHUB group. I say 10L because that’s what it’ll cost you to join the group. Just 10 little Lindens! Just this dress alone is worth the one time join up fee. Plus there are tons of free gifts for you once you do join up!

So don’t delay… put on that tag and grab your freebies!

Make a Scene

Making a Scene

One of my most favorite things to do in Second Life is decorate. I am constantly rearranging my little house and decorating for the seasons and holidays. And I’m really getting into the landscaping too. I love being able to make a perfect scene.

And speaking of scenes… I was able to put together this quite little scene in a coy corner of my house all for free. I dropped by one of my most favorite decor designers today: Reka Nutmeg and was so excited to see a ton of free gifts set out. Now, I hadn’t stopped by the main store in some time so many of these gifts may have been out for awhile but they were all new to me.  Just join the free Group and scoop up your treasures!

As with all free gifts and group gifts on the Grid, these could go poof at any time. So don’t wait around too long to go make your own scene!

Like the latest Sense Event! This round is chock full of great shopping of course. But this round’s free gift is really something special. This is the ‘Nini Dress’ from Alter and you can pick it up for free just for joining the Sense Event Group which is also free.  Like all of Alter’s things, this cozy little dress is beautifully made and fits perfectly. So hurry over to the Sense Event and grab one for yourself. But don’t delay… this round ends December 8.

Sweeter as the days go by

Sweeter as the days go by

Well, hey there FabFree! Long time no see!  I am finally settling into the new place here in New York. Road tripping all the way from Texas was quite the adventure with all my kitties in tow. But we all did great and it really was smooth sailing. But wooowee, it’s cold up here compared to Texas! It’s time to break out the boots and snuggly sweaters in real life!

Ahlure is breaking out the sweater for us in this months free Group Gift too. This is the ‘Snuggles’ dress.  Now, the interesting thing about this dress is that you get two patterns on the HUD; this leather patch one I’m showing and a stripes all over one. Then you get a color picker so you can tint your own colors to your hearts content.  I know I have a couple of shoes/boots and socks combos I will be using since I can make the dress match perfectly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

A nifty new dress needs some nifty new boots, right? Of course! I picked up these “Steampunk” boots by La Perla for just 1L over at the Orsy Event . Like anything ‘steam’ and/or ‘boots’, these are going to get a lot of wear from me!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya (+ a Flat Chest Version)
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique
  • SLink – Hourglass

Sizes Included (gloves)

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya

Feeling the Love

Feeling the Love

Hey FabFree! Is it finally getting to be Fall where you are? Well… except for my friends on the other side of the globe who are welcoming Spring!  Texas, especially southern Texas, is very late to get Fall. It’s November and the tree here are just now starting to turn and the nights are getting chilly. But our days are so perfectly pleasant now. Warm and breezy and just awesome. You can still really enjoy lighter clothes but you may need a sweater later.

LOL, ok now that you have the weather report from South Texas… let’s get to the outfit that inspired my meteorological musings.

This is the “Autumn Love” mini dress and boots from Lurve.  I was so tickled to pick this beauty up for free today. I just joined the ‘FashioNable’ group for free and grabbed my new favorite outfit!  FashioNable group is very similar to Teleport HUB or Second Life Free and Offers, the group will alert you to lots of new and free or discounted items. Something all us bargain hunters need in our bag of tricks!  As with most of these gifts, they can change at any time so hurry down to Lurve and get your gift on!

One quick note, I slipped on a tee under the beautiful denim vest. I think it makes it look just that much more ‘autumn-y’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Jomo – Fox, Werewolf
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Dreamer

For I have always been a seeker, a dreamer, and a ponderer on seeking and dreaming.

~ H.P. Lovecraft

Seeking and dreaming. I like that. And here I thought Lovecraft was all demons and Deep Ones.  And if you thought the Call of Lovecraft event was all hunt you’d be mistaken too. I found a lovely Victorian look Gacha from Antaya there!

This is the Clementine Gacha and amazingly, it’s only 25L per play! Look at this gorgeous gown… 25L! In fact, I put this entire outfit together for just 75L in pulls. I wasn’t able to get the little top hat fascinator but I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Gown.  Everything is so beautifully made, every detail is perfect! Add a few holiday touches and this would be perfect for Christmas, wouldn’t it?!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Call of Lovecraft runs until November 21 so don’t miss out.

Barbie Girl

Barbie Girl

I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
~ Aqua – Barbie Girl

Okay, I have to admit. I wasn’t into Barbies when I was a kid. Except how they could sit on my Breyer horses. But every now and then, I’d go on a fashion fling and all the Barbies ( and the horses) all got fancy new clothes. Now… I play dress up everyday! 😉

So… the Barbie Hunt caught my eye with all the great designers and cute prizes. Then I saw how this top and these jeans went perfectly together! I love it when that happens!

First is the ‘Summer Fun’ top from Candie Queen… or maybe from Moon Tribe. The top says Candie Queen… but it’s in the Moon Tribe store. I don’t know what to tell ya. All I can do is give you the landmark I used to pick up this cute little crop. Even the little bit of confusion is worth getting this top. It’s beautifully made and you get a HUD for twenty color choices. It’s a great addition to any closet.

Boo, Update ->

It appears that Moon Tribe/Candie Queen has completely dropped off the Grid. None of the LM work now. I just hate this, sorry guys. 😦

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Next is this great pair of jeans. I do love paisley and the pastel colors make me even more happy. Of course, Loordes of London makes a fantastic product and these are no different. The “Teramo Jeans 14” only come in the classic Mesh sizes but I had no problem fitting them to my Maitreya body. Plus, the mesh sizing means everyone clinging to their system bods can enjoy these jeans too!

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh sizes – XXS – L

The Barbie Hunt runs until the end of the month so you have plenty of time to hunt down all the pink prizes!
