Ice Dreams

Ice Dreams

Nostalgia.

Things disappear in Second Life really quickly don’t they? I was going through my landmarks folder and discovered that some of the places that I used to visit have either changed drastically or are altogether gone. It was a bit of a relief to discover that Ice Dreams and the picturesque boardwalk that it’s standing on is still there. The Baja Norte sim was one of the very first sims I visited when I rezzed and I still remember trying to figure out how camera angles and windlight settings worked right in front of this little ice cream stall. Those attempts have long been bined (why I thought neon, drop waist medieval gowns were a good idea is beyond me) though I think that the results of my second attempt could certainly be a keeper.

Here are the details;

 All it takes is an inspiring hat,

Being on a bit (loosely putting it) of a hat binge recently, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the updated Fabulously Free In SL group gift from Belle Epoque was a simple yet elegant straw hat. It was as if I couldn’t get it out of the box fast enough, oohing and ahhing all the way at its pretty textures and the white ribbon detailing around its crown. It added a nicely feminine touch especially when paired together with the green leaves and lovely white carnations that sit on one side of the hat’s brim. To get a little bit more technical about things, the hat comes with a nifty resizer script and permissions are set to copy so that you can make as many backups as you want.

Well, it looks like I’m ready to keep the sun out of my eyes this upcoming Spring; and all for free too as there is no cost to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. Just wear your group tag when clicking on the vendor and you’ll be good to go. Still hazy on how to join the group? Visit this page {HERE} and take a step closer to collecting all the free gifts that we have on our listing.

A generous gift card,

Last Friday, Pru did a post about FabFree Designer Ollie’s Follies and my curiosity was piqued when I saw that they were offering a 100L gift card on their midnight mania board. She went on to detail that a group tag was not needed to smack the board and with a very low goal (10!) to lock the it, I couldn’t resist popping down to give it a tap as well. With my free gift card in hand I explored Ollie’s Follies further and found not a few things that caught my fancy. Foremost was the Lysa dress which comes in an array of colors and prints (pictured is the pale blossom color). The style of the dress, with it’s V-shaped neckline and belted waist went quite nicely with Belle Epoque’s Straw Hat and the girly look I was going for. The Lysa dress comes in five standard mesh sizes, though there are sizes for mesh bodies sold separately at the store as well, with a good alpha layer included. Usually this classic little number is priced at 150L though with my gift card activated I ended up only forking out 50L for it which was just wonderful. While you’re there at Ollie’s Follies don’t forget to grab your Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well!

Great weekly deals,

It’s 50 Linden Fridays again! There’s a great group of designers for this round that will surely leave you spoiled for choice. I’ve never missed on getting a hair pack from Wasabi Pills every time they participate in 50 Linden Fridays and this week was no different. The side swept Olivia hairstyle was a great whimsical fit to today’s outfit and comes with a Hud of 7 varied colors to choose from.

The second item I picked up from this week’s 50 Linden Fridays was the Kismet socks from Luxuria. These delicate over the knee socks with its pretty lace fringe comes in eight solid colors (white shown in picture) and can be used by most avatars as it comes in the following sizes:

  • System layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink and mesh bodies compatible with the omega system.

If you’d like either item for your virtual inventory, it’s highly recommended that you do so quickly as these deals are available for Friday only.

And a ton of likes.

Remember those heels from Essenz that I blogged about a couple of days ago (hint hint)? Well, since achieving 2500 likes on Facebook, the store is giving away a set of the Paris heels in neutral colors for free! While I already own the shoes in those lovely pink shades, it’s pretty great to receive additional colors for it. The gift package includes sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet with a shoe base to help with the fitting. There’s also an easy to use Hud which lets you switch between three colors for the main body of the shoe as well as its sole and fittings. Congratulations Essenz! Hurry down to the store to grab your pair today as these heels are only available until the 19th.

And that’s a wrap. The sun’s going down on Baja Norte and I should go and see if those walruses in the distance would like to share an ice cream cone or four with me. Catch you later and have fun out there guys!

Stranded

Just 'Cause She's a Girl...

Hello Fabulouses.  Do any of you know if the SL version of AAA services tractors?  In RL, I’ve run out of gas, had a dead battery, and locked my keys in the car.  Every time, the AAA rep arrived like a knight in shining armor, and saved me.  However, today…. I don’t think that will be the case.  😦 After Ripley and I returned from our trip, a friend of mine called, saying he needed help with plowing his field.  When I saw the rusted condition of his tractor, I glanced at him dubiously. “The tank is full,” he said.  My eyebrow raised.  “I just tuned it up,” he said.  Both eyebrows raised.  “Nothing to worry about,” he said.  Famous.  Last.  Words.   She did start up like a charm, I’ll grant him that, but after one trip around the field, with a shudder and a cough, she just….gave….up.  No amount of coaxing, no amount of promises of Ripley snacks, no amount of helpless pounding on the steering wheel worked.  I was stranded.

Pretty as a Pin Up

Well, if I have to be stuck with a stubborn, tired old tractor, at least I look glamorous in my Retro Pin Up Outfit from Meli Imako.  With a vintage, knotted checkered top, and fitted denim capris, this adorable number makes me feel like a sexy, fifties pin up girl.  I love the detail the designer put into this creation such as the slightly puffed sleeves, buttons on the shirt, and the pocket accents on the pants.  This outfit is the featured free January gift at Meli Imako’s Marketplace store because it earned the most likes on the designer’s Facebook page.  I’d have to agree with all the votes……it’s a great choice!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in 5 sizes:  XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Hourglass, EBody and Tonic

Put Your Red Shoes On

I admit it, my heels are in no way practical for driving a tractor around a field, but they called my name.  As soon as I saw the Cinzia pumps fat pack featured in the KC Couture Marketplace store for only 75L, I knew they had to be mine.  Constructed of rigged mesh, these classic heels have a timeless elegance which totally complemented my retro ensemble.  A 30 color texture HUD makes these shoes extremely versatile.  You can customize them to go with any outfit.   These stilettos require mesh feet, and fit Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza and the Eve Mesh Body.  I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for a day of plowing, but hey, it’s SL!  Where else could I drive a tractor and walk around in muddy, scrubby fields, and never mar my shoes?

Speaking of Walking…

I don’t think help will arrive any time soon.  It’s time for this girl to save herself, and hoof it on back to civilization.  I’ve got a pup at home who is probably worried sick about me.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

This clutch comes in several colors, and at just 45 lindens per color, it’s a steal!

All sweatered up for a night out

Happy Saturday everyone. My Mom and I are going out for some girls night fun tonight, and before I start thinking of what I’m going to wear for this RL outing, I thought I’d have some fun and doll myself up in SL for the very same thing. Any excuse to put on something pretty, am I right? LOL.

gazebo_002

If you head over to B!asta, you will see that they are part of this years Dirty Turkey Hunt. The gift you need to find, is this lovely sweater and skirt combo called As A Feather. Both pieces are mesh, and while they are obviously made to go with each other, each piece would be great for mixing and matching with other items in your inventory. I had to include a shot of the sexy low back on the sweater, what a nice detail. B!asta is stop #22, and the hint for their prize is : Omg, one of these lights just stared at me – with turkey eyes!! As with all Dirty Turkey Hunt prizes, this baby is free! Here’s a link to the hunt page so you can see all the other stores participating.

If you hadn’t already guessed, I am a nail polish fiend. Both in RL and SL. Lucky for me, Alaskametro’s monthly Facebook gift for November, is a set of Autumn coloured, glittery, nail appliers. You get appliers for Eve, Maitreya, Omega and Slink, in this free for all gift. To claim it, you need to head to Alaskametro’s Facebook page and look under the promotions tab. Copy the keyword, and then in world, head over to the store. Stand near the poster of the gift, and type in /33 KEYWORD, with KEYWORD being replaced by what you copied from Facebook. I have to say, I had a hard time deciding which colour to show off.

gazebo_009

As for the beautiful skin I have on, Niska  in Pumpkin, with pretty orangey lips and eyeshadow, is a L$75 special that you will find at Lumae. It was supposed to be part of Lazy Sunday, but Lumiya forgot to apply for this last round, oops! So she decided to put it out at the Lazy Sunday price anyways. As with all of her skin specials, it comes with every applier you could possibly think of, along with several tattoo layers for things like freckles and cleavage. You have until November 21 to get this lovely skin at this price.

gazebo_003

With a few extra touches, I think I am perfectly dressed for a girls night out. If only it were this easy in RL eh? Alright my lovely FabFreers, I better head out. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN 🙂

Who says Halloween can’t be about flowers?

Hello again my FabFree readers! Did you miss me last week? I missed you, but don’t worry, I’m going to make up for my lack of a post last week with a super-duper, wicked-awesome, goodie-filled post today! Ok, maybe I overdid it with the ‘super-duper’, and ‘wicked-awesome’, but I do have a lot of goodies to show off. So let me get right into it.

purple_004I wanted to put together a look that would work for a more formal Halloween party, and I started with my shoes. These little beauties, called Sutra II, are the free October Facebook gift from Alaskametro. I was so excited to see the colour they came in, as I just love purple as a Halloween colour. What’s even better, they come with a HUD that lets you choose between 3 different shades of purple. I am wearing the version for SLink high feet, but there are also The Mesh Project, Maitreya, and Belezza versions, all in their prospective high versions. In case you have not ever taken advantage of the Alaskametro Facebook gifts, or just don’t remember what to do, let me tell you. You need to head over to the Alaskametro Facebook page, HERE (like it if you haven’t already), and click on the link for special promotions. The picture there will tell you the code you need to know. Then, inworld, head over to the Alaskametro store, and walk over to the gift poster. Say the code you got from the Facebook page, on channel 33, exactly as written (meaning in capital letters). So your chat bar should show /33 CODEHERE, with CODEHERE not being the actual code, of course. Make sense? Trust me, these shoes are worth the effort! You have until the end of the month to grab them up. purple_001

Next up, my gorgeous dress. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple from Tiffany Designs, and it is their current Womenstuff group gift located at the ‘stuff Lounge. As stated in the name, this is a mesh dress, in all the standard sizes. Sure, looking at the lovely flowery print, with the sweet flower at the waist, one does not immediately say ‘Hey, that’s a great dress for Halloween!’, but the colour worked so nicely with my shoes, and of course the devil is in all the little added details for putting together a great costume. *grins* All you need to do to get this free gift, is join the Womenstuff group, for a small L$50 fee that is totally worth it for this dress alone, not to mention the multitudes of other gifts available.

purple_006OK, no formal party look is complete without some great jewelry. I picked up this statement making Bohemian Rhapsody necklace and earrings set at our very own FabFree Headquarters, and it is a free gift from D.D.M. Designs. These big bold pieces are the perfect complement to the simple lines of my dress and shoes, and it’s hard to beat free! Just a warning, there are actually 2 left earrings in this set, and no right earring. I have alerted the creator, but it is a simple fix by changing the attach point of one earring to the right ear, and then doing a few hocus pocus adjustments to get it sitting correctly.purple_003

OK, now for the piece that made my stunning formal look into a stunning masquerade formal look…my fabulous floral eye patch from the Bird Next Door Shop on the Marketplace.  To be honest, when I decided that I needed something for my face, I went looking for the typical, pretty, delicate mask look, and believe me, there are lots of great ones to choose from. However, in my search on the Marketplace, this flower eye patch came up, and for only L$23. It was so different from everything else, and at such an affordable price, I thought I’d give it a try. Obviously…it was a winner! And, even though the listing says it is no mod, it is actually the resize script that is no mod, so you can adjust each individual piece to your heart’s content. I tinted a few of the glowy flexi pieces the same purple as the flowers to better match my dress.

purple_002

Phew…ok…I think I am done. This was a long post. I think I am going to go see if Mr. Skeleton would like to dance. He looks like he may have been waiting around for quite a while. LOL. Hope you all have a lovely week, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN!
