Keeping Busy

There are swathes of time in SL where suddenly there’s a lot going on.  We seem to be heading into one of those chunks of time, where so many different events are celebrating anniversaries, and then deciding to spoil us all because of it!  I’m definitely not one to complain about that.

Happy Bday Cosmo!

It’s time to celebrate Cosmopolitan’s 9th anniversary!  This staple event always has something awesome to pick up, and this round is filled to the gills with free gifts.  To get them, join the free Cosmopolitan group, then click on all the little crates at each stall.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Dress by Mondial sized for Legacy, Freya, Hourglass & Maitreya
  • FREE Glasses by ZK store
  • FREE Hair by Limerence in several pastel hues
  • FREE Makeup from Poema with BOM layers, and Omega and Catwa appliers

This round of Cosmopolitan is running until May 15th!

Enjoy!

The Owlery

bird pic_0043489u

This post is filled with great deals that will help you achieve this fantastical owl look, so read further for the details! This post is chock full of freebies, so dig in for the free and magical fun my friends! 🦉

Free Gifts @ Fantasy Faire

In this post, I am focusing on freebies you can find at Fantasy Faire 2021. I had to hunt hard to find these, as the event is massive- 22 sims in total! I will break down down some of free gifts I found at the Faire below.

  • The gorgeous owl mask is a free gift at Spyralle’s booth. Grab this little guy for 0L on the wall. This was a hard one to find, but it is so beautiful and intricate. What an amazing gift!
  • This beautiful hairstyle is a free gift at Firelight’s shop at the Faire. This hair is so cool, because it changes colour every minute to a different natural tone! There is also a free men’s hair gift in their booth!
  • The amazing shimmer on my body is a generous free gift from Ghoul. Just enter into their store at Valhalla and grab this gift in the middle of their display. This crystal shimmer is a materials applier that works on Legacy and Maitreya bodies only, as well as Lelutka Evolution heads. This applier can be used on Male and Female avatars.

  •  Belle Epoque has a set of nails hidden in an object in their store at the Faire for free. Click the statue for the hint, and go hunt for it! The prize is a beautiful set of purple nails that work on Legacy and Maitreya bodies.

The Language of the Birds

Another way to hunt down some great deals at Fantasy Faire is to participate in their “Language of the Birds” hunt quest. Please read Juli’s post here to find out more details about how to play the Fantasy Faire Quest Hunt. By purchasing the quest HUD (it costs 250 L for the basic or 350L for the deluxe*), you are able to participate in the quest. The HUD can be purchased at Fantasy Faire Junction. If you solve the quest, you will receive a reward in the form of a bunch of gifts from various Fantasy Faire designers. The quest gift I am showing today is a set of beautiful floral horns made by EscalateD. These look like little floral branches that a little bird would stop to rest on!

The Quest hunt and the free gifts will be available until May 9th, the closing day of Fantasy Faire.

The Fairlands Quest is live!

Other Freebies and Offers

My look today is packed with additional freebies and offers from various places around the grid, so here are some more offers I am showing off today:

  • LSR currently has a 300L credit gift for all LSR group members. The group costs 99L to join. I bought this amazing dress I’ve had my eyes on for a while now. It’s called Yanikha Dress and it comes in 3 textured patterns. I purchased the dress in black and it was completely covered by the credit gift! The dress fits Legacy, Maitreya, Isis, Freya, and Hourglass. The 300L credit is only available until May 7th, so go get it quickly!
  •  The rings I am wearing are a free gift at OVH that fit Legacy and Maitreya bodies. The group is free to join; just click the board and these lovely rings are yours! They include a HUD that allows you to change the colours of the metals and colours of the gems on the rings.
  • My blue fantasy skin is a free group gift at Lumae. This skin is made for Lelutka Evolution heads and you can get it for free at their store as a group gift. This skin is BOM and it fits Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Belleza bodies. The Lumae group is free to join.

Daisy Fields

Daisy Fields

Hey FabFree! I hope you’re having a wonderful start of the week. I am enjoying the blossoming spring (almost summer) weather in the daisy fields and just chilling. It’s a good day! Today I have a gorgeous free skin to show you and another group gift at Scandalize.

Holly

This skin is absolutely beautiful, and it’s completely free. This gift is compliments to amara beauty. This designer makes gorgeous skins! This is the Holly skin, and it’s designed for Lelutka Evo heads using BOM. I am wearing the skin on the Lilly Lelutka Evo head that was gifted to us last Christmas, so if you have this head this might be the perfect skin for you! This skin will also look lovely on any other Lelutka Evo head.

Sizes Included

  • BOM, designed for Lelutka Evolution Heads only

amara beauty also has other body skins- body appliers and BOM layers for Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies- out for free in the upper level of the store, so check those out while you stop by too.

Flarya

The beautiful top and shorts set I have on is yet another group gift at Scandalize. You can find this gift at the same location as the new Scandalize outlet that Aline blogged about the other day. For this gift, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group. In addition to that huge room of free gifts Aline shared with us last week, Scandalize has set out some extra gifts at this sim which you can only get at this location. Just go into the “group gifts” room on the outlet sim. The Scandalize group costs 20 Linden to join, and it is well worth the fee because you get access to lots of fatpacks, gifts and lucky letters! The Flarya set is a full fatpack and comes with options to change the colour of the top, shorts, the frills, strings and metals of each piece. There are also a number of stripes patterns that come with the set. It’s a keeper!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

See you soon, FabFree!

The Book of Spells

Book of Spells

I have always had an affinity for all things fantasy and magical! I love to crawl up with a good fantasy book any day- let me escape to a wonderous, magical place! Today I will be sharing an amazing free magic spell book, and a few other magical gifts.

The “Trouble Maker” Spell Book

This glorious spell book I am levitating is the latest free group gift at Birth. The book comes in black, silver or gold binding, and the animations are wonderful. The gift also includes light particles for the book and your hand. Watch the video by Birth below to see the full animated effects. This is an amazing gift, so thank you Birth. ❤ The Birth group is free to join so go snatch this gift before they change it to a new one!

Juna

The hair I am wearing is the latest group gift at EscalateD, which you can pick up at their main store. Juna is a beautiful, messy style, and I paired the hair with colour huds that EscalateD has for sale at Fantasy Faire. The group gift comes with its own naturals and unnaturals colour huds as well, but it’s great that you can collect and used other colour huds on any hair made by this designer.  Juna is a new favourite style of mine! The EscalateD VIP group costs 99L to join and past group gifts, including more universal hair colouring huds, are still available to collect.

❤ New Group Gift

BOM Goodies

The last couple items I have to share with you are Bakes on Mesh items. First off, this gorgeous black tattoo of the roses and chains shown on my chest is a group gift for members of the Carol G Tattoo  group. Every since converting to BOM, I like playing around with tattoos and this tattoo at Carol G is gorgeous. The Carol G VIP group costs 200L to join.

The second item I wish to share is a stunning eyeliner set by Trend. These are a group gift, and Trend is temporarily FREE to join! Make sure to collect all the gorgeous group gifts while you stop by. ❤

Appliers Included

  • Genus
  • BOM

See you soon, FabFree!

School Day

School Day

Hey hey, FabFree! Ya know Elfs and unicorns go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like cheese and crackers. Like chocolate and milk…. Like…. Okay, I might be hungry…   But let’s talk unicorns. I do love the magical critters and when I found a Hunt dedicated to them, I knew I was gonna jump on it!  Tons of cute stuff on this Hunt and it’s “family friendly” so those of you with SL wee ones are going to want to check it out too.

This entire outfit, from head to toe, is the 1L prize from a new-to-me designer – The Dismal Peacock. Yes, the name made me chuckle, too.  You get the ‘Unicorn School” tee shirt, the jeans and the cute pink and white sneakers all as one prize. Plenty of fit options and a solid build means this will be a good addition to your closet!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And while you’re spending that 1L for a new casual outfit, save one Linden for a gorgeous new hair style! This is ‘Instant Crush’ from Exile and you will find it for 1L on the Market Place. That one little Linden will get you all the colors and two versions of the hair. One that is regular mesh and one that is ‘Bento’. Which means it moves with a little sway when you move. Pretty cool!

Not All Who Wander are Lost

Not all who wander are lost...

Hey gang!

Felt the need to just get away from it all today, found myself in an enchanted forest with ruins.  I have a story about ruins.  A friend’s aunt and uncle traveled to Rome and came back with photos, of course, while showing them to my friends parents, the Uncle complained that the buildings were all run down and falling apart.  The aunt replied, “Oh honey, they are *ruins!*  They’re ruined!”

So here I am in the forest with the ruined ruins.  Donning yet another free group gift hair from Fabia (@ Energy Weekend Group, Free to join!).  I told you there was a wall full!  Wanted to show you one more before I lose them all in my messy inventory!

So now, in all my chattering, I’ve wandered too far and must find my way back once again.  Hope you have all had a splendid weekend!

One Big Runway

KS @ Girls Heaven

Took the little man out for a stroll this morning and came upon a modeling agency!  Saw it was mostly male clients, but little man wanted me to inquire and so I did.  Unfortunately they only take on human male clients and my little man Chi was a no go.  😦  I assured him that doesn’t make him any less appealing as a canine model and that he is very handsome indeed! (You can get your very own handsome little man (or little lady!) at Jian at the Cheeky Chihuahuas Gacha, only 50L).  The key is below:

I, meanwhile, am here to also show you this cute group gift from Lamb (hair).  There are a bunch of group gifts over at Lamb, their group is free to join, so go grab some cute hair whydoncha?!

And so, like I told my little man, as long as you feel good in what you wear (or au naturel like my little man  lol) and you walk through life like it is one big runway, you are a model baby!

Until next time, happy Sunday!
