Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!

Fit for a princess!

Maiden_001

Aline has already shown you some great free gifts from the Gacha Garden {here} and {here} but when FabFree reader Victoria sent me a special tip that I could put together a roleplay outfit with two gifts from the event, I knew I had to blog them for you! All you’ll need is the Gimme Gacha group (the group is free to join) and then stop by the respective vendors to nab your gifts and this pretty fantasy look fit for a princess is yours!

Hair please!

This fabulous fantasy hair is free courtesy of Analog Dog at the Gacha Garden event and includes twisted braids in the front and back for a fanciful look. You’ll get a full range of colors with a color change hud and a tinting wheel that will allow you to make the hair almost any color your heart desires. This is fitted mesh and should work with just about any head you might have. It’s a generous gift indeed!

A dress fit for a princess!

Broken Style is also giving a generous gift at the Gacha Garden in the form of their Ursula gown. It includes a tiara as well, making it fit for a princess. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes an alpha in case you need it. You’ll also get a color change hud allowing you to choose between three colors (I’ve included a picture of the hud at the bottom of this post so you can see). Pick this gift up free with your Gimme Gacha tag as well!

Vendor Artwork/Hud NOT my artwork!

XoXo

xoxo_001

I decided to stay in bed today. I think I’ll just curl up with the remote and watch cartoons and drink hot cocoa and forget about the world for a while. A couple of days ago I went out with my hunt buddy and we found some pretty things that I thought I’d share with you and they seemed fitting for a day snuggled between the sheets.

XOXO

My sweet kisses shirt is by Sin Original and is part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. You can get it for just 1L and it features kisses on it as well as X’s and O’s on the design. It comes in several sizes to fit your mesh body needs.

Shirt sizes available:

  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A little silver

I also picked up a sweet circle pendant as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt at Florian. This too was just 1L and is yours for a little hunting time to find the little black bag. It is pretty, delicate, and adjustable, and would fit with most outfits, rather casual or dressy. I loved the detailing on this pretty bauble!

Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!
