Modern Geisha

Evening Fab Free’rs, hope you’ve all had a great day! I spent mine doing all sorts of not fun very mundane real life stuff. It’s not so bad though, because now I get to share pretty accessories with you. :) Tonight’s post is stacked with some really beautiful accessories that I picked up at a new event called Creators Collection Box. At the event you’ll find everything from furniture to clothing, much of which is specially discounted just for the duration of the event. Several of the participating designers also placed out special gifts, simply wear your CCB (Creators Collection Box) tag and pick them up for FREE. Out of the several gifts I picked up, I decided to show my favorites, which include the umbrella, the bow in Pru’s hair, the lovely bouquet of roses, the chest tattoo, and these pretty eyes. Some of the items are also scripted and have poses, so I took some additional photos.

First however, the adorable bow in Pru’s hair is one of the many FREE Gifts at CCB. It comes from Amiable. I positioned it differently than the default to better fit Pru’s hairstyle. Pru is wearing the bow in black, however the gift includes a pink version and a cream colored version.

Umbrella Poses

This Japanese style umbrella is gorgeous, and I had a lot of fun posing with it. The umbrella is the FREE CCB gift from Silvery K. It is very detailed, and includes a menu for changing the pose, opening or closing the umbrella, turning particles on or off, and re-sizing. The above photo shows the 3 poses, two for when the umbrella is open and one for when it is closed. Please note that the pose only changes how you hold the umbrella, not so much your stance. You can also use the touch menu to turn the animation off and on for different poses. I found that if you have a pose that initially “overrides” the umbrella’s hold, turning the umbrella animation off, then back on fixes it so you can use your own ao/sits/stands or whatever and still be holding the umbrella properly.

Old Rose Poses

Another beautifully done absolutely FREE CCB gift with poses are these “Old Rose Bouquets” by RH Design House. There are three colors, red, blue/lavender, and a pretty pink. In addition, the gift comes with two standing poses, and one sitting pose specifically for holding the flowers. I really can’t decide if these roses or the umbrella are my absolute favorites of all the gifts. I sincerely love these flowers though, and intend to leave them out in my home so even when I’m not holding them, just so I can see them.

Tattoo & Eyes

Speaking of seeing, the eyes Pru has in are also a FREE CCB gift. They are by *(OO)*Yuki, and come in a four-pack of pretty variations of the basic eye colors, brown, green, blue, and black. The eyes are mesh and included in the package is an alpha to hide system eyes. Also shown in the above photo yes yet another FREE CCB gift by Chocolate Atelier. The Valentine’s themed chest tattoo comes in color and monotone versions, and includes system layers, as well as appliers for Slink Physique, WowMeh, and Maitreya.

Candy Girl

Sugar

It’s the weekend!! Time for some something fun! The most recent group gift at The Sugar Garden is deliciously cute and girly. VIP Group members can pick up this candy themed necklace and bracelet set for FREE in the VIP room. The Sugar Garden VIP room is to the right at the landing point. Additionally, there are several past group gifts and promotional items still available such as these glassy rainbow eyes, the raspberry lip gloss, and these fun sparkly face stickers! There is a one time group join fee of $350 lindens, however there are monthly gifts and as mentioned before, instant access to several previous gifts.

The second I saw this Group Gift from Remarkable Oblivion, I knew it was perfect to go with the sugary sweet jewelry from The Sugar Garden. I really enjoy the combination of  the sweet treats printed on the fabric of the bow, and the punkish spiked stud accents. This adorable bow is just one of several group gifts out at Remarkable Oblivion. Just wear your group tag. There is a small group join fee of $50 lindens, worth it! This hair bow is honestly my favorite part of the whole ensemble. It’s cute, and the textures are really beautifully done.

Feeling the need for something pink and girlish to go with my sugary sweet accessories, I picked up this halter top and skirt set for FREE from B!atsa at Fab Free Headquarters. The top is regular clothing layers, with an optional applier for Lolas Tango. No need to join a group, just come out to FFHQ and pick it up! Also, don’t forget to check out the other Fabulous gifts available.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The ink is black, the page is white….

Hello again, my dears. Things are seldom as simple as black and white. (anyone remember the awesome PC game called Black and white?) However, this is pretty simple: the Black and White Hunt from Fi’s Creations is a great hunt.

black and white1_001

Let’s start with this sleek smexy look I put together from the Black Path. This is the ‘Arlington’ dress from Euphoria Couture , with just a little subtle sparkle and a lot of attitude. The prize comes with the gorgeous dress, the sandals, the sunglasses. It also comes with a lovely necklace but I wanted to show you the prize from Redrose Jewellry. This is the Onyx Diamond Silver Chain necklace and it’s perfect if you’re looking for something really special and sparkly.

The next prize is from Wicked and it’s a dozy. The earrings, ring and the clutch all for one prize. Can’t ask for more. Last, but not least are the nails from La Boheme. As always, La Boheme has put together an awesome set of nails for us. The prize includes both the manicure and pedicure for SLink nails.

And I’ve been waiting such a long time… for Saturday

Happy happy Saturday, my dears!  The weekend is upon us and that means -> Date Night!  Whether it’s with your honey or a girl’s night out or just hitting the hot spots, you have to look good.  And M&M Style has got just the thing to make you look really good.

M&M1_001

First is the “Shanna” dress in black and white with pops of hot pink. It has an asymmetrical hem so you can show off a little leg and turn heads where ever you go.  Second is the equally smexy and smart “Monic” dress.  The board on the group gift wall calls this dress “Hanky Dress Mesh” and the folder you receive… calls it Lady Monic. Whatever you want to call it, I think it looks great with it’s deep plunge and short skirt.

M&M1_002

M&M is a treasure trove for all us bargain hunters. There are 16 group gifts up right now plus… get this… Forty Three… lucky boards! This is in addition to camp chair and midnight mania. PLUS a huge store full to the brim with really outstanding fashions! You can’t go wrong!

… Standing there by the record machine…

Hey there, my dears! Today, I’m getting my rockabilly on with KC Couture!

rockabilly_001

This is the “Bellavita Coat Dress” and it’s one of the many sale items over at KCC right now.  For just 60L you get the dress as I’m showing it but it’s also usable as a coat over your own outfit. You also get a HUD with a flat out ton of choices. You can separately change the color and pattern of the “bra” top part and the slice of skirt showing under the black part. There are 20 solid colors plus 20 patterns AND 3 different metal button colors. In the Bellavita fat pack you also get a pair of SLink High heels. However, I wanted to show you the Roma heels for Slink High feet that is KCC’s Second Life Frees and Offers gift this month.

rockabilly_004

Completing my doo wap look today is the pink “Do-Rag/Head Band #11″ from  Silver’s Trading Post that I found on the Marketplace. The bandana comes in both the full kerchief I’m wearing and a head band style. All for 10L. The earrings and necklace are also marketplace finds. These are the “Cherry Earrings and Pendant” from Something for Everyone by Lillia Fleury for only 5L!

Catching up with SL F&O

Hello again my dears! I know all of you guys who already knew about (and love) Second Life Frees and Offers must be laughing at me for my new found enthusiasm. What a great group! I’ve been running around collecting the fantastic gifts all day. Happily, many of the designers leave their gifts out for longer than a week so some of my picks here are actually the last round’s finds. First up is a ‘new to me’ designer:  Precious Designs
sfl&71_001

This is the “Come with me” dress. I love the flirty flippy skirt and the print is just wonderful. Precious Designs has a bunch of SL F&O gifts and group gifts out at their main store. Everything I saw was just a pretty and well made as this cute little dress. You can also see Lumae’s SL F&O gift here: the Alaska Skin in Mulled wine. The beautiful skin comes in two colors: Honey and Cocoa. The Alaska Skin is one of the December SL F&O gifts I was talking about. So if you want it, be sure to hurry over to Lumae.

sfl&71_002

The “High Tied’ boots and the “Leila” hair are the big stars of this next look. The boots come from Like Design and I love them. I like that they are a silvery black or charcoal rather than just a solid black. It really sets them apart. These too are a December gift still available at the main store.
My wild hair is the real show stopper. “Leila” is a limited edition color pack made for the A&A Anniversary by Alice Project. The pack has five colors. Each color has the same blue and pink locks with different colored ‘roots’. The root colors are black, brown, blonde, and natural red as well as the white.

So put your SL F&O tag on, my dears and head out.  :)

Updated to add – I’m really sorry, guys but the High Tied boots are no longer the SL F&O gift for Like Designs. They have an new ( and equally awesome ) pair of shoes.

All I need is a great pair of shoes

And so we reach mid week, my dears. I hope all is well in your RL and your SL. The weather is still miserable here so I’ve been camped out in my SL finding all kinds of fun free and almost free things for us. After the Cart sale at the Wash, I decided to check out a designer who is quickly becoming one of my favorites: DUH!

yellowflats_001

The shop is full of fantastic shoes and even more fantastic bargains. These cute gold ballet flats are a completely free for everyone gift! The ‘Sunny Yellow Sequin Slippers’ fit system feet for y’all who haven’t gone the SLink route. Simple and so well made, I think these will fill many a wardrobe spots. Next is my favorite find today – The ‘Rainy Day Boots’!

rainboots_001

These purple polka dotted rain boots are another free gift! The ‘Rainy Day’ comes in seven colors but only the purple ones are a free gift. I fell so in love with these so much I had to build an outfit around them. I found the ‘Ladies Trench Coat Chanel’ from Divine Essence Designs on the Marketplace for just 15L. Lastly, is the umbrella. This is the full perm mesh ‘Umbrella’ from Flax Pye Studio also on the Marketplace. This is a blank mesh for builders and comes with both an opened and closed version and the color and shadow patterns. All for 20L.

Monday Grey

Happy Monday, my dears!
It’s kind of gray and gloomy here in my RL and it put me in the mood for oversized cardigans and cozy things. Mr. Poet has supplied just the thing for a chilly wet day: their “Bat Sleeved Knit Coat”. Now, technically, this cardigan and scarf are for the boys but I think they look great on anyone.
Snapshot_001

This is the gray cardigan but you also get a black one and a blue one in the gift. The “Wide Scarf” is a separate gift, it is resizable and has ten color changes. I was really impressed with the quality of the builds on these items. Both gifts are free for everyone!

Topping this casual day look is my new do from Cheveux. This is their Christmas gift now available to everyone for 1 little Linden. You can find it in the main store or on the Marketplace. I love the soft mix of browns and golds in the aptly named “Brown Mix. The style also comes in a pale blonde in the gift.

Y’all stay warm today!

Goodbye Weekend, Hello Week

Good evening my dears! I hope we all had a wonderful weekend. I count it a good weekend when I find a new to me designer AND get some nifty free hair styles from them.
quick_002

This is Vivain from Earth and Sky . It comes with the cute watch cap attached and a HUD to change the color of the knit. And it’s no quickie HUD either… there are twenty colors for your cap.  Both of the hair styles I’m showing you come in the 25 color fat pack so there’s a bunch of choices.

The other free style is Leotie with it’s fun pig tails. I love the casual ‘messy’ look.

quick_003

This last look isn’t hair but it’s such a cool jacket. The Winter Shorty from Yasumis only 50L right now. I don’t know how long this special price will last so if you want it go grab it quick. Like all of Yasum’s pieces it’s beautifully made and just so suave.

Here’s to the weekend past and a new week coming. *Cheers, my dears*

Some beach, somewhere…..

Hello, my dears! I don’t know about y’all but it’s so so very cold here in the States this week! There’s snow all over the place and we’re not going to get above freezing today or tomorrow. So this is the perfect time to go to the beach! Right? Okay, maybe not in real life but in SL it’s beach time any time! With that in mind, I took a run at the 0L  Summer in January Hunt  . Besides, January IS the middle of Summer in New Zealand and Australia! ** waves to her Kiwi Friends!**

BeachBunny1

This is a very smexy offering from Ayva’s Attic. There is a great pair of men’s board shorts in the gift as well for you gentlemen. The barely there halter top and shorty sarong skirt might not be the best for surfing but you will surely turn some heads on the beach.

Next is the gift from Grumble: a strapless bikini in my favorite color – purple.  And when you’re ready to take a break from the surf, you can relax on this beach blanket from Kabuki Creations. It comes with the stack of towels, a bottle of wine and the great little vintage radio. There are two pose balls – one sit and one stretched out sun bathing pose.

beach_003

But what if you’re stuck in winter and can’t get to the beach? Ms. B. Designs has got the answer – your own wading pool! The pool comes with poses for two and is fillable with water or.. ice cubes if you really need to cool off.  So just slip on some shades, like these from B. Barbie Style, grab a yummy ‘adult beverage’ served in a coconut and enjoy your January!
