Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Beguiled by Argyle

SnatchminaGood afternoon Fabulous Readers!  Today I am bringing you news about a couple of really fabulous free items that I was really excited to come across.  One item is the super cute long hair by MINA Hair and the other is the adorable argyle sweater dress by Sn@tch.

Taking It From The Top

I’m not quite sure where to start because I am so giddy about both items, so let’s just start at the top with the Luna Hairstyle that is available as a free group gift at MINA Hair.  This playful style includes a hairstylist HUD that allows you to tuck your hair behind your shoulders and also remove the bangs and side hair, making it compatible with whatever you might be wearing with it.  Blonde and Essential colour packs are available in this gift so you’ll have plenty of options for shades.  This group has a 200L join fee, and you can find this group gift at the entrance of the store, but if you venture in just a little further, you’ll find a wall full of previous group gift hairstyles as well!

Sn@tching Up That Argyle Style

There is some pretty exciting news at Sn@tch!  Ivey Dechanel has updated ALL of the lucky boards with new FREE prizes and they are awesome!  One of them is the Wilora Argyle Sweater Dress I’m all bundled up in – AND…  it includes a texture change HUD with a ton of colour options.  It fits like a glove to the mesh bodies listed below and also comes in regular mesh sizes and an alpha for those still on the system body…  so everyone can enjoy it!  These are not group boards, so you can just give it a little slap when your letter comes up!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

Game On!

18-01-12

The games people play…

If you are reading this, you obviously play online games.  I’ve spent countless hours, socializing, blogging, leveling, raiding and chasing the next best weapon in that given game. The games I have played online are many and varied. From card games to RPGs, to social interaction games like Second Life, each defines a bit who I really am.

Gamer Boi…

My gamer look today is made up of two dollarbie gifts from the All ‘stuff Hunt. D2T Designs is providing as their hunt gift the All ‘stuff Hunt Menstuff Hoodie. The Malcom Shorts are the prize at Trashed. Both the hoodie with my favorite mantra “Eat,  Sleep, Game, Repeat” and the shorts come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

If you game for fun or glory, be sure to pick up both of these hunt gifts for just 1L each.

It can get hairy, sometimes…

If you have ever played an MMO and have taken part in a raid, you know that sometimes it can get very intense. Take one too many steps or move in the wrong spot and you can be the one responsible for the raid wipe. That’s the thing about Second Life if you talk about things getting “hairy’, the conversation is usually about hair or appliers. My messy gamer hair is a FREE group gift at ARGRACE. The Minatu Hair is just one of the group gifts available to members. I’m just glad in gaming you always get another life, a second, and a third, fourth…

Walk On

Walk On

Ah 2018.  You’ve arrived.  A brand new year, full of possibilities and newness.  It’s a chance to be the best me ever, and I’ve got myself a few resolutions to ensure this year gets rolling in the best way possible!

1 – Be more rock n’ roll
2 – Dance like nobody’s watching
3 – Eat more pizza
4 – Learn to say no

I’m working hard at that last one, since it’s clearly the hardest one.  I’m starting off easily with some clothes to inspire my ability to say no!

Here, Fishy Fishy!

I found my inspiring clothing at Sn@tch, who are always amazingly generous with their gifts.  This outfit is part of a really great mix and match fishing grab bag that has all sorts of great items, from shoes to pants, to hair and even tattoos!  You can really make all these items your own.  I’ve paired the Shiny Plaid Snowpants with the Untouchable Bra to emphasize the fact that I want people to step off and keep walking!  I also put on the Carter hair, because I love a good top knot!  You too can grab these amazing items (and so much more) by picking up a 7 Seas fishing rod (which you can buy right near the pond outside Sn@tch). The rod will cost you 100L, no bait required.  Pay once, and play for fishing outfits in the future!

Ooh, my doorbell is ringing!  That must be resolution number 3 at my door!

B-Ball

BBallA Tickle Trunk of Goodies!

In the group notices of the Vive9 inworld group , you will find three FREE group gifts STUFFED with fatpacks (13 fatpacks to be exact!) of ladies hair, clothing items, footwear and accessories by Vive Nine, Fiore and Ryvolter!  All of these eclectic goodies touching all different genres of style made me think of Mr. Dressup’s Tickle Trunk where he stored endless amounts of random items to make up the costumes used for the skits on the show.  You’ll see… my next post is all the way on the other end of the fashion spectrum lol.  Whatever your personal style is, I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

My Sporty Look Using Three Gifts:

I put my sporty B-Ball look together using three of the gifts in the lot.

  • Fiore Allana:  This hairstyle comes with a regular version and a flip, for ease of use with clothing items and poses and offers a full range of hair colours.
  • Ryvolter Aria Denim Jacket: Fitted for the Maitreya mesh body and may work with others.
  • Vive Nine Jacky Jersey Dress: Comes in XXS – L mesh sizes + alpha layer.
