My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Move! Animations has a new dollarbie Bento Dance to grab! This time it’s fun and sassy Julia13, which to me seems like a great club dance to add to your variety!  It runs about half a minute and loops pretty smoothly too.

Skateboard Love


Skaboard Love

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I thought why not show some mush and love on the blog. 😛 I’ve got my guy with me to help show this super sweet couples pose gift from the Pop Up Pose Fair and some matching his and hers hunt dollarbie prizes from the Love Me Not Hunt. Keep reading for all the important info.

The Pose – The moment I saw this super fun couple’s pose by Fashiowl, I had to share it with you! It is one of 3 free gift poses at the Pop Up Pose Fair. It comes with the skateboard props, a mirrored version of the pose, and the pose is adjustable. To get your copy of this gift and the others by Fashiowl, you’ll need to join the Pose Fair group. It’s free to join. Then you can click the gift boxes at each of the participating vendors and get your free gifts. Also, the Pop Up Pose Fair ends Feb. 14th, so don’t wait!

Waffles LMN Hunt Prizes – There are dollarbie his and hers hunt prizes for the Love Me Not Hunt at Waffles that are of course perfect for Valentine’s Day. The “Love Me” shirt for the guys comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. The “Love Me” dress for the ladies at Waffles also comes in multiple sizes and will work for classic avatars. The LMN Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a stem-less red rose. This hunt runs through the end of the month, so there’s still some time left to hunt the multiple floors at Waffles for these prizes.

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

I love conversation hearts.  You know, those little pastel candies that don’t taste like anything in particular other than sugar and the colour pink.  It’s not the taste I’m after, it’s the little messages.  I still get overly amused when I find one that says “fax me” or “page me”.  Looks like the conversation heart writers are still stuck in 1994!

Love Bites

It’s time for the Love Bites Hunt!  There’s a sim full of little conversation hearts just begging for you to find them.  They are all priced from under 25 Lindens, and they are filled with goodies I just can’t get enough of.   The sim may be a little busy, but if you derender everyone and cam about it makes things just a little easier.  Today I’m showing off the offerings by Ersch, which are priced at only 1L each.  The sweater and skirt combo are delightfully quirky and give me that pink and red pop of colour that I love this time of year.  Both are sized for Maitreya bodies.  Don’t delay, the Love Bites Hunt runs until February 17th!

The real question is, who is faxing valentines!?!

Stupid Cupid Cute


Nicer When I Like My Outfit

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the middle of the week than with some dollarbies from the Stupid Cupid Hunt! The Stupid Cupid Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a cupid’s arrow. For this post I hunted TSCH prizes at EscalateD, DeFient Unicorn, and Prism. Keep reading for all the info about each of these 1 linden prizes.

The Hair – This adorably messy up-do is the TSCH prize at EscalateD. It comes in 2 variations, each with a mirrored version also, and has 3 mini color change huds. A unique feature for this style is the added ability to color change both sides of the hair the same or differently.

HintYou can keep this love in a photograph but where to put, where to put…

The Barrettes – To go with adorable hair, you need equally adorable barrettes. These Valentine themed hair clips are 3 of the set of 7 barrettes that make up the TSCH prize at DeFient Unicorn. Each barrette is copy so you can wear multiples of the same one, or mix and match.

Hint – If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.

The DressPrism put out this sweet little dress as their TSCH prize. The key word here is little, watch out ladies, she’s short! That said, the dress is definitely cute on, and perfect for Valentine’s Day. It comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EBody, Slink (Hourlgass, Physique)

Shake Shake, Shake Shake

Hello there FabFree!  I have no idea when it happened, but there are some really cool free mesh starter avatars in your inventory!  Grace Selene sent me a message earlier to tell me about them, and so I recruited her to help me show off a couple of them, along with a playful 1L dance animation by Move! Animations.

Second Life is offering plenty to choose from for guys and girls, young and old –  whether you want a normal avatar or something a little different.  There are retro avatars, medieval for roleplay, fantasy characters, vampires, wolfmen, demons, and even zombies. Below is just a snapshot of a random selection available.  Starter avatars have come a long way if you ask me!

Here’s how to easily find them and change them in firestorm…

  1. Click on “avatar” at the top left hand corner of your screen.
  2. Click on”toolbar buttons”.
  3. Select “avatars” and drag it down to your toolbar.
  4. Click on the avatar tool button you just created and select your poison.  (note…  this will replace your avatar)

Now to see them inworld…

Here’s the fun part!  Grace and I are showing off the retro 70s guy and girl, shaking our booties with the Sophie Bento 049 Dance Animation by Move! Animations which is a 1L teaser of their new dance line of Super Cute Kawaii Loops.

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy hunting!

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone. To get your copy of this dynamic pose, head over to the Pose Fair, and be sure to join the free group before clicking the gift box at the posEd booth.

Tweed

Tweed

As Stan told you, Gabriel is having a huge clearance sale and an entire section of the store is all priced at 1Linden! You could get an entire wardrobe for the price of one piece of clothing. And from a premier Second Life designer!

Outdoors

After I picked up this stunning tweed jacket and bag, I headed out to my new favorite hiking spot, confident that I was the best dressed man on the SIM. ( Stop rolling your eyes, Juli ) The ‘Zip Up Tweed Jacket’ comes with the smart leather bag but you can wear each separately. Each color of the jacket is sold separately but at this price, you can easily scoop up all of them if you so desire. This amazing sale will certainly not last long so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • XXS – XL Mesh
