Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Man in Black

Man in Black

Black as Midnight

Hey there! I’m attempting a post to see how it goes. My recuperation has been nice, relaxing, and BORING! But unfortunately I’m returning to work in a couple weeks. So much for the life of leisure. <sigh>  I’ve been watching listening to way too much TV. One of my favorite new shows is Midnight, Texas. The church in the show reminded me of the church at The Last Forever. So here I am in my midnight best showing it off.

Today’s outfit is a free gift for the Third Life Group members at !BBN!. The Man in Black outfit consists of pants and a shirt, both in sizes XS-XL and also a fitted size for each. The Third Life Group does have a 10L join fee, but a small price for such a nice outfit. This outfit is going into my keeper closet, for sure!
Hopefully, I’ll see you soon!

Everything is coming up roses! And I found the perfect dress for a casual dance, complete with mesh gloves, so I won’t get pricked with pesky thorns should I happen to be offered a rose to hold!

Bento Gloves are in!

Purplemoon Creations has out a beautiful new group gift, complete with necklace, earrings, and Bento compatible gloves!

Gloves available with this outfit:

  • Fitted Bento gloves
  • Slink Bento gloves
  • Maitreya Bento Gloves

If that weren’t enough, the dress comes in all the popular mesh body sizes as well!

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Put some dancing shoes on, this is a gift you won’t want to miss out on. There is a small group join fee of 50L for the Purplemoon Creations Store group, but the creator is generous with gifts and promotions, making this fee one that is definitely worthwhile. Teleport down and pick up this beautiful gift while it’s available!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/14/2017 – Nala Designs

Nala Designs
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you but I am so glad the weekend is here. It’s been along week and I am ready to relax a little bit. I also am in need of some freebie retail therapy. Thankfully I have the pleasure of sharing with you Nala Designs for this weeks edition Fab Free Designer Friday. There are many opportunities at Nala Designs for FREE and inexpensive items. The above photo is of the Nala Designs front desk. Here is where you can join the Nala Designs group and you’ll want to check out the little pink gift box. It’s a 5 linden gift. Most of the Nala Designs items are mesh trendy casual women’s clothing items in great colors and patterns. Additionally there are a few formal gowns and dresses, and I even spotted a men’s formal suit. There’s also a lingerie department on the second floor.
Nala Downstairs
The Nala Designs group is just 50 linden to join. Directly to the right of the desk you’ll see the wall of information. Check out that information space for info on hunts, events, and other group affiliations. To the left of the front desk you’ll see two discount vendors next to a pretty mirror. You can score two 50L items there. Also, the mirror will let you teleport to a discount area. As you travel through the store toward the back of the first floor, you’ll find the FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift. This is for Fabulously Free in SL group members only, so don’t forget your Fab Free tag! If you’re not already a member of the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join.  At the very back of the store you’ll also see a Midnight Mania board, and a Night Prize Board. I was able to join the Night Prize board without a group tag. Also while you’re exploring the first floor, keep your eye out for a round side table with a little blue gift package. There you’ll find a 10 linden swimsuit, it’s on the right side of the main floor. As if these great gifts and discounts were not awesome enough, there’s more to be found upstairs.
Nala Upstairs
Once you’re upstairs, you’ll find two additional group gifts for other groups among the regular store vendors. The upstairs is also where the Nala Designs group only Lucky Letter boards can be found. You will need to be sure to wear the Nala Designs group tag to participate in the Lucky Boards. Needless to say there are plenty of Fabulous reasons for you to visit Nala Designs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

One Moment in Time

One Moment_001

It’s that one moment of magic when the moon is still out in the morning as the sun rises and both are out at the same time… The sky is a color that no painter can capture, but Lunaria almost captures the color on this free gift dress I found.

Annabel don’t cry for me…

I’m not sure if this free group gift dress by Lunaria called “Annabel” was meant to be a roleplay dress or not, but it sure would be perfect for one. If you’re not into roleplay, it’s beautiful for any other occasion as well, and it makes me think of moors and songs and poems by Edgar Allan Poe like “Annabel Lee.” The fabric is an amazing texture as far as the color… shimmering in different hues of blue with a sheer hem, and it comes in a variety of sizes for all your needs.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

If you love this dress, be happy! There was another free group gift out, as well as a Midnight Mania board, and three lucky letter boards too!

More magic.

As if this dress wasn’t enough to make my day, NSP Florals has out a magical gift right now in the form of this Pastoral Bliss Hair and Wreath. The hair has wisps around the face and a braid down the back. The hair and wreath are separate pieces, so you can wear the hair by itself, or pair the wreath with another hairstyle you already own if you like. You’ll only be getting the ginger color in the hair, but it is simply stunning, and I was happy to change out of my usual silver locks for the day.

NSP Florals has a one time join fee of 125L for their group, and you’ll need the group tag to pick up your gift, but the creator puts out a beautiful monthly gift. So if you join this month to get this gift, you’ll be set to get next month’s gift and all the gifts to come!

On Down the Line

Ocho Tango

All my bags are packed and reedy to go…

… in my dreams. I’d love to be able to take a trip, but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. At least in Second Life, I can go to whatever destination a care to choose with a simple click of the mouse. Today I’m taking a train ride to wherever the tracks lead me. I had a layover at the Ocho Tango Club and found by joining the group I could get this Men’s Mesh Dress Outfit for FREE. The outfit includes a shirt and pants in classic XS-XL sizes, a hat and shoes. There are several FREE gifts on the table for members, both male and female. Be sure to check them all out.

My train is boarding, I need to scoot on down the rails. Later!

Pretty Posies

Sweet Floral
Oh Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very girly today, princess-like even thanks to this pretty floral dress and matching shoes from NSP Florals. The gifts at NSP Florals have always been generous, so I was not at all surprised to see that the shoes came with this beautiful pink dress. I can’t help but imagine a romantic date on a warm summer evening dancing and laughing in this dress. I also love the added detail of the straps on the bodice.  The NSP Florals group has a one time join fee of 125 lindens. In addition to this June group gift, there are group only lucky letters, and you can purchase a few of the previous group gifts for just 5 lindens each.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/16/2017 – Marquesse Pret a Porter

MPP Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and this week I’m happy to share with you a shop that has both male and female clothing designs. This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Marquesse Pret a Porter. You’ll notice right away as you enter the shop that the store offers clothing for the ladies as well as gentlemen. There’s a wide range of clothing available at Marquesse Pret a Porter. I saw shoes along with casual and formal style clothing.

The circulation desk and wall of information are both in the same location, right as you enter the store. I love it when everything is easy to find and can be seen right away! Most of the shopping is on the main floor, however there are a few items upstairs as well.
MPP Gifts
The circulation desk area is also where you’ll find the Marquesse Pret a Porter group gifts, as well as several group gifts for other affiliated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL. First, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. You’ll find there are a few available group gifts located in a row just above the “Gift” marquee on the desk. The additional gifts require other specific group tags. For the exclusive Fab Free group gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the red and green present on the desk. You may recall seeing this gift in Astrid’s post “Waiting is Over-rated…” As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. Oh! Also, before I forget, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group members also have group exclusive Midnight Madness boards and Lucky Chairs.
MPP MM Lucky Chairs
Located at the back of the store, Marquesse Pret a Porter group members can slap one or both Midnight Madness boards, and win prizes from the 5 Lucky Chairs. The MM Boards have one male gift and one female, while the Lucky Chairs have rotating gifts. Happy Shopping guys and gals!

Dark Magick

Dark Magic

I’m stirring up a little magic in my roleplay today, courtesy of SLB 14! I visited the event and was thrilled to see that roleplayers were not left out of the free treats and gifts to be picked up.

Generosity…

I was amazed at the generosity of [Tia], the creator of the Grimoire Table you see in my photo above. It is the free gift you can buy for 0L if you visit the [Tia] booth at SLB 14. The table is all decked out with tons of detail, including lit candles and a rotating magical aura on the book on top. For all this detail it weighs in at a mere 5 prim. This is a must add to your inventory for roleplay furniture.

And my dress!

My dress is a free gift also. If you go to The White Armory, and head inside the main building, you will see that it also houses BlueMoon Enterprises, where you can pick up their latest free gift (the group is free to join), this Saoise Dress in Aqua. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a quality alpha so that you’ll be able to fit it to standard or mesh bodies either one. It’s perfect for some magical roleplay!
