Monday Funday

7515_002
Happy Monday everyone!  What is the best thing to ease into a long work week?  An entirely free, and super cute, outfit!  A little birdie told me about free Minions purses over as Muschi, so I made a beeline for the store.  In addition to this purple Minion bag, there is also a regular, yellow version available.  Not only is Muschi generously giving out these purses, they also have this adorable mini dress out as a gift.

Vanity Hair has this beautiful, rainbow hair for free in the group gifts section (No group needed for this hair!  But there are a ton more cute styles for free if you do join the group, and it is very worth it).  The Damasc Bangles, the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer is the perfect touch for this outfit.  The set is amazing, with options for full sets of bangles, our add each bangle separately for endless customization.

Rounding out the day are these mesh stockings and Dolly shoes from Curious Kitties.  I love the big, clunky mary janes, and think they give a great balance to the minidress.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

5 July 2015 [1]

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

5 July 2015 [2]

The second thing you need is this fabulous rigged mesh gift hair from rezology called Save the Queen. It is a steal that even Queen Mab will approve of for the sweet price of only 1L on the Market Place and comes with a fully customizable hud that lets you tint the hair first with a base color and from there even further with a secondary tint to get the hair your perfect shade. It’s the first hair hud of this kind I’ve seen and I was very impressed with the way it worked (and the control it gave me over the colors I could achieve!).

5 July 2015 [3]

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July

It wouldn’t be the forth without some fireworks now would it. Well I have a firecracker for you from Blueberry. This is the FREE mesh lingerie set GG which includes fits for both system and mesh bodies. The group is FREE to join. But wait for the real bang it comes with separate huds for the top and bottom containing 16 colors so you can mix and match colors to your hearts content making this a very versatile set and not just for the 4th of July.

My skin is the FREE enmeshed (EIS) hunt gift from 7 Deadly S[k]ins. A lovely basic skin and it comes with Slink hand, feet and body appliers along with tango and phatazz appliers too. No hints are given so I will just suggest everyone look closely at the NEW skin display for a pop sickle.

Just a little reminder about the 50L sale Truth Hair is having. There are a whole truck load of hairs in the backroom which is were I found this sweet as apple pie hair I am wearing. It has a bow Hud which along with changing colors will also remove the bows.

My flag is actually a pose that comes with the flag prop. Makes for an easy way to snap some patriotic pics all for only 25L on the MP.

Happy 4th of July

Just in case you want to start some fireworks you can grab this sexy hot little number FREE over at !SOUL using your SL frees & offers group tag. In case you don’t belong to the SLF&O group it is free to join and many store throughout SL have free gifts in their stores connected to this group so keep an eye when shopping anywhere for the pink SL frees & offers sign. Speaking of that 7 Deadly S[k]ins has a FREE SLF&O gift skin sitting on the table in the 1st room waiting for you while you are grabbing the hunt giftie.

Here is a close up of the SLF&O skin
