I’m No Angel

Greetings FabFree Folks.

I'm No Angel

I love coats. I have way too many in RL and now I’m collecting them in Second Life. So I sure could not resist Virtual Diva Couture’s latest Group Gift! This is the super stylish Fever Mesh Pastel Jacket. It’s free to group members this month and the group is also free to join! While you’re at Virtual Diva Couture be sure to check out this huge shop and the tons of great styles everywhere.

If you remember my last post, I showed you Miss Canning’s free group gift jeans in the black. I’m showing the blue version here today. Plus, these come in a green tone as well.

I’m also wearing the ‘Simple Dragon Choker’ from Jinx. You can pick up this lovely at the  Fair Play  event for free. Jinx has generous set it out as a free for everyone gift just for stopping by.  Fair Play runs until January 27 so don’t delay.

I'm No Angel

Last but not least is my gorgeous graceful pose. This is from Eternal Dreams’ “Guardian Angel” Gacha machine, pose #8.  The circle of glowy feathers are included in both gold and silver. However the wings are not included. This gacha was at the Fantasy Carnival, if it looks familiar, but now it’s available at the main store… along with a ton of other gachas!

An Angelic Cold

An Angelic Cold

Last post it was warm Arabian sands… this post I bring you the cold angelic look of a frost fairy! And it won’t break your budget for this stunning look!

Sweet Peach Designs has put out an exclusive gift for FabFree members at their main-store. This simply Angelic Baby-doll outfit (wings included) includes both system layers as well as omega appliers, and is FREE with your FabFree group tag! Just head to the back of the store to pick it up. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L but your 1L is immediately refunded, making this gift completely FREE!

To give my look this truly frosty fairy feel, I stopped by Finesmith, where I found that their stunning December group gift called White Cold Xmas is still out. It includes the bracelet, headpiece, and neck-piece shown… all of which are snow and branch “nature inspired” for a truly elemental feel that is perfect for roleplay! This amazing set really added to my baby-doll outfit and was FREE with my group tag. The group is 150L to join, but the gorgeous monthly gifts make it well worth your while!

Banner Free Dove ~ Tiffany DesignsGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 12.

The Tiffany in-store hunt at The Free Dove is topping the chart this week. Just looking at the outfits pictured on the hunt poster I can see why. This looks like a fabulous collection of gifts that every woman will want to get in on. This hunt is FREE.

While you’re there, you can pick up some Iconica shoes too. Check The Free Dove Iconica Shoe Hunt… currently number 6 on the chart.

There are plenty of other cool hunts too. Check the list and start clicking!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Sweet & Sour Desert Flower

Sweet and Sour Desert Flower 1

Some days you just feel like dancing. And if a new outfit and new hair isn’t a reason for dancing, I don’t know what is!

Firefly is participating in the Mars Meets Venus on Earth Hunt (which ends January 23rd) and for only 1L you can pick up this beautiful Arabian inspired full outfit called Sweet&Sour for only 1L if you find the planet at their main-store location. The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has a terrific eclectic design that really catches the eye. The outfit includes shoes for system feet (no special feet required) as well as a sculpty sash (it’s modifiable for a perfect fit), resizable armlets, and the tattoo bindi for your forehead. The top comes in a system layer only, but it’s well worth rocking your system body for this highly detailed gem.

Sweet and Sour Desert Flower 2

If you’re looking for a new hair-do, be sure to stop by Blues. Hair and pick up the latest group gift. This style called Eline (which is the Happy 2016 New Year gift) is FREE to group members for your small group join fee of 99L. There are a couple of past group gifts still out and more to come in the future, and these are all full fat packs so you’ll get your Linden worth in one stop at the store by joining the group!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL colorsofthewindhuntThe number of hunts has definitely fallen off since Christmas. I think all the hunt organizers are exhausted from the holidays. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some good hunts out there however. Some of the winter themed hunts are still on and a whole bunch of Valentine’s Day hunts are just over the horizon. Second Life residents love their… well… love!

So take a gander at the current offerings and get hunting. As usual, The Free Dove has a nice set of store-wide hunts that are worth checking out. Going in the wee hours of the morning is good because The Free Dove does get crowded.

Don’t Try to Box Me In

Don't Try to Box Me In 1

I am making away with some fabulous finds at the Cart Sale… and this sexy little black dress just happened to catch my eye this morning and find its way into my wardrobe. I really think it is a must have simply for its versatility. The design is clean but classic and embellished enough that with the right accessories it can be casual, elegant, Gothic (as I have done) steam punk, fantasy, or just about anything your heart desires. And for just 10L at the Stars Fashion Cart at the Cart Wash Sale, it was a real gem to take home. What’s more, it comes in all the standard sizes, plus fitmesh as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza fits.

Don't Try to Box Me In 2

I wanted to stop by to see a particular sim (the location is listed at the bottom of this post) and somehow the wintry feel, class ideas of ghosts and lives past, brought out the Gothic poet in me! So when I saw this stunning FREE accessory gift by Pixel Box designs — and how well it went with my little black dress from Stars Fashion — I just fell in love. You don’t even need to join the group, just hop over to Pixel Box and buy the gift for FREE. You’ll get these gorgeous boots, the raven hand bag, and the black rose head band all in one box. Do hurry though! Pixel Box tends to change out their FREE gifts quite frequently!

A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!

Darkly Beautiful

Hello again FabFree Folks!

Darkly Beautiful

I don’t often go ‘full glamour’ but Rowena’s Designs Cart over at the Wash Cart Sale sort of demanded it. This is the “Adalina” gown on the Cart for 10L. It comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and it’s alpha layer. There is kind of a dark side look to this outfit that makes my inner Goth very happy. The bodice is a very subtle leather look with deepest red highlights.

Darkly Beautiful

I picked up those red highlights in the absolutely gorgeous ‘Adalina’ necklace , also on the Cart.  The necklace comes with a HUD to change the metal, the gems and the hanging jewels. In fact there are six metals choices, six gem choices and six jewel choices, making it a very versatile piece!

Even though the gown is floor length, I picked up the elegant matching ‘Adalina’ Heels for SLink High Feet. They also come with a HUD to change the colored section at the bottom of the shoe. I really do love it when a designer puts together such a well thought out and coordinating outfit. It’s one stop shopping at Rowena’s Designs Cart!

Rowena’s Designs Cart ( and all the other Carts) will be parked at the Wash until January 6th.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!
