The Dark Side

The Dark Side

Yesterday’s plan was to be a cat.  I was going to be all sleepy and luxurious and have people feed me (you can read about that idea HERE).  But then I got bored and so I decided to have an adventure.  I found a creepy and beautiful door that leads who knows where, I put on some adventurous clothing (and by adventurous, I mean completely unsuitable for an adventure, but very pretty nonetheless).  Anyway, long story short, I found my way into a shadowy realm.  No biggie!

Darkness Falls

My mysterious adventure all started when I landed at The Darkness.  This event is celebrating an anniversary, so the designers have put out some FREE gifts! Yay!  I first picked up this sexy dress from zOOm.  It comes with an HUD that allows you to change the colour, but of course in my misty adventure mood, I went for black.  Typical.  It comes sized for Hourglass, Maitreya and Physique.  You can also wear the top and bottom separately to mix and match with other things in your wardrobe.  Cool!  I also picked up a few other things at The Darkness for free – These really alluring head chains I’m wearing by Stomcrow Designs being one of many!  I love how they’re understated and can be worn for so many different looks.  The box also contained several different septum piercings that were quite striking (not pictured).  The other giftie I’m showing is this pose by Kokoro Poses.  You get four for free to add to your collection!  I’m loving this dark adventure thing!In order to pick up these gifts, just join The Darkness Monthly Event group for free, and then click on the gifts at the landing point.  Some gifts are also near the vendors so you may want to venture into the event just a little deeper.  Enjoy!
Now um…can someone get me out of this creepy realm of darkness?

Silver Girl

Silver Girl
Hello there, Fabulous Readers  and Happy Friday at last!  I’m super excited about my post today because Ripley and I have a special surprise to share with you in just a bit.  We hope you enjoy it!

Silky Soft Sweater

I know I’ve blogged about TRS Designs quite a bit lately, but there are so many lovely gifts there that I just can’t resist returning again and again.  My high necked Meghan sweater is my latest Fabulous Find at the shop.  With sleeves that completely cover my wrists and an extra long waistline, I could see myself wearing this top in real life (I can never find sleeves long enough for my arms).  I really like its realistic folded texture and silvery sheen.  This cozy winter top is a free gift for members of the TRS Designs group, which is completely free to join!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

It’s Full Bento and It’s Free?!

This week, I heard about a Bento AO that new residents (under 90 days) can pick up for free at the SEmotion in-world store.  The SEmotion Newbie Girl AO HUD includes four stand poses, three sits, two ground sits, an athletic jump, Bento hand movements, and a sassy walk animation.  This is one sweet deal!  You haven’t been left out fellas – there is also a male version available.  If you’ve been in SL a bit longer than 90 days, you can scoop up this animation override for just 1 little Linden dollar at the SEmotion Marketplace shop.  It’s really cute!  In order to take advantage of the full Bento capabilities of this HUD, you need a Bento avatar, but I tested it on a classic avatar, and other than the hands being different, it worked just fine.  I knew I wanted to feature this AO in a blog post, but I really didn’t think a still picture would do it justice, so I tried my hand at creating a video about it for you.  It’s my first attempt at vlogging, and I know I have a lot to learn, but I hope you watching enjoy it!

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Thank you for reading (and checking out the vlog post).  Until next time, happy shopping!

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

Fab Free Designer Friday -12/15/2017 – HelaMiyo

HelaMiyo
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here because this week the Designer Friday post is all about HelaMiyo. Generally HelaMiyo is probably best known for their static poses. The shop also has hand fans complete with poses, couples poses, eyes, and hairstyles. Yes, you read that right hair. The HelaMiyo hairstyles are very stylized, much like a lot of their static poses. Most notably there are period hairstyles, which are great for costumes, role-play, and photographs. Speaking of photographs, at the landing point for HelaMiyo, you’ll find a room with a public photo studio that is FREE for everyone to utilize.
HelaMiyo Gifts & Info
In the room with the public photo studio you’ll find several FREE or dollarbie poses for purchase. There is also a pose stand with poses that are also available as gifts in the center of the HelaMiyo store. This photo studio room at HelaMiyo is also where you’ll find the group gifts, and store info. The HelaMiyo group is FREE to join. Additionally, there are two gifts for other groups, one of which is the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Carson showed this gift in his post “Whatever.” If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, you should be! The Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

As you browse the HelaMiyo store, you’ll wanna check out the table in the room with the hairstyles. There are a few dollarbies to be had. Another spot to be sure and stop by is the sunken lounge area. This is where you’ll find a few HelaMiyo group Lucky Letter boards. Don’t miss these awesome freebies! Enjoy your weekend Fab Free.

Fashionably Frigid

Fashionably Frigid

I’ve been hunting like a maniac the last few days, and despite wanting to rip my hair out now and then, I’ve found some really fantastic gifties!  The Women Only Hunt has been delivering some fabulous finds (you’ve probably seen a bunch of them on the blog) and I hunted down an outfit for a chilly and fashionable afternoon of standing outside full-sized gingerbread cottages.

Dressed for Success

I’m wearing a dress of an icy hue that I got for free at Ersch through the Women Only Hunt.  With a little bit of patience, and perhaps some eye rubbing, I found this distinctive dress.  It comes with an HUD of pastel colours, and one with darker colours.  You can even go red and green for Christmas!  Basically, you can mix and match the bows and dress colour to your heart’s content.  Oh, and by the way the back of the dress has a cute heart cut out on it!  The Lensa dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Frosty Frames

The glasses I’m wearing are another Women Only Hunt free find from Dazed .  I really like the frosted glass on the glasses which give a cool wintry look.  Seek and ye shall find!

Strike a Pose

You can’t take a good photo without a cute pose, and this free pose was my quarry at Hello Poses.  The box had 3 different posing options and their mirrors in it.  You can pose all day long!

If you’ll excuse me now, I’m getting a bit hungry and that corner of the house has my name on it!

/me sneaks a bite.

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

Enchantress

Enchantress

Sometimes when the mood strikes, I become a little bit…witchy.  I was inspired by some gifts I picked up at the Hashtag Black on Black Event to become an Enchantress of the snow!  I dunno guys… you can be anything in SL, right?

White on White

There are quite a few gifts out at the Hashtag event, some for free, some for a small fee.  I picked up the Amelia dress at the TRS designs booth, and immediately liked the damask patterning.  It also made me think of freshly fallen snow, all crisp and white! The Amelia dress comes in sizes from XXS to L, and costs a measly 1L, so go grab it!

Enchanting Pose

Another gift I found at the Hashtag event was a free pose by Sam Poses that made me think of someone calling forth the snow.  Very fancy.  There are three poses in this gift, and I noted afterwards that it came with skulls you can hold in your hands if you so desire.  Clearly I needed no skulls for my snowy moment!

The Hashtag Black on Black event is open until November 30th so you’d better hurry up to grab this enchanting look!

A Shutterbug in a Winter Wonderland

Kodak moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I visited The Mill for another dose of winter wonderland, and came across multiple kodak moments.  There aren’t too many things that would make me kneel in the snow (brrrr!) to snap a photo, but the gorgeous landscape, and Rip’s new pals decked in winter accessories are two of them.  Aren’t Rufus and Rex super cute?

Lilian and Naia Are Super Cute, Too!

There is something so classic in the combination of red and black, and I created this look today by combining three group gifts.  First, my off-the-shoulder, crimson sweater is a free gift from ::LiES:: Creations for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group.  With ribbed knitting on the neck and hemline, and a realistic texture in the body of the sweater, this top is bright and cheerful.  Inside the gift package, you will find versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Since the MGS&N group is free to join, the Lilian pullover won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Also a group gift, this time from Belle Epoque, my Naia pants come in black, blue, red, white and yellow, so it’s like getting four presents in one.  A free giftie for members of the Teleport Hub group, these trousers don’t come in different sizes, but they fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly, closely hugging each and every curve.  Featuring a shimmering, satiny texture topped with well placed folds, Naia is sure to flatter your figure.  To add these slacks to your inventory, simply journey to the shop on the Wild Willows sim, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and tap the vendor.  While you are there, you might want to scoop up the theatrical Venetian Mask which is a gift for Fab Free group members.

All Wrapped Up

To add a finishing touch, I applied a brilliant red manicure, which is a free gift from Hello Dave for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  You can get a better view of this fun polish in my close up below.  “Early Wrapping” features silver ribbons tied across a cherry red background, which is bound to put you in a festive mood!  This applier is compatible with Slink (v2 and above), Maitreya (just click the small nail polish bottles on the right side of the HUD), and Belleza, Vista and Empire (providing you have the appropriate Omega System Kit for the particular brand of hands).

Kodak Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap for this post (I couldn’t resist the pun).  Rip and I are off to explore some more of this wintery landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
