Creepy and Cute

Pru OOPSCreepy

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely one of those people who thinks of Halloween as being more of a season than a single day. I’m in a spooky festive mood already this year. I think these cute sweater dresses from OOPS are a fun way to ease into the season. They come together as a FREE group gift for all OOPS group members. I really like the off the shoulder style, however I think the term dress is relative in this case. My body shape would definitely not allow me to wear this sweater as a dress! The OOPS group has a one time join fee of 10 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Ebody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP

Next up this three ring septum piercing is a FREE group gift from Boutique 187. I could wear this piercing every day, no matter if my outfit was dressy or casual. This group gift at Boutique 187 comes with a color change hud that lets you choose between 6 colors and you can change each ring separately. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden. Along with this piercing gift, there are several past gifts still available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Soft Golds

Fall Colors_001

The weather has cooled down the last few nights where I live… cold winds ushered in by thunderstorms. It’s made me think that fall will perhaps be here sooner rather than later. But that’s okay. I’ve always enjoyed the autumn breezes and warm browns and oranges that mark the season. It’s not quite cold enough for sweaters yet, but it’s cool enough I’m wanting to start my fall wardrobe, so I picked up a gift that tickled my fancy for that!

Soft Golds

I stopped by Guilia Design and picked up the Third Life Group gift called “Cherry Gold”. I’m not too sure about the name as the gift includes these great black leather pants plus this gold tones snake skin top and a separate mesh belt, but I’m going with it because I really love the outfit!

Cherry Gold comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus quality alpha layers for system bodies (if you need it). Remember, the Third Life group is only 10L to join if you are not already in it, so this gift will only cost you 10L. And the Third Life Group gives you access to gifts in stores all over the grid, so it’s well worth joining!

Fall Colors_002

Change of Pace

I don’t usually show off collar gifts, as they are not my personal style… but I love the quality of clothing and items at Salt & Pepper and I think the creator turns out some truly beautiful gifts. I wanted to make sure and share this new gift that Salt & Pepper has out for group members, as it’s incredibly well made and really lovely.

The “Toy” Collar comes in two versions “His Toy” or “Her Toy” and both are fully customizable with a hud that allows you to change the color of both the leather and the metal. (I’ve included a picture of the advertisement below to show the options). It is also resizable making it unisex as well. You’ll need to click the menu to find the resize option. It is RLV enabled for those who are interested.

The Salt & Pepper Group does have a one-time join fee of 300L, however there are quite a few very nice past group gifts still out for you to enjoy, and the creator is generous about putting out new, quality group gifts as well, making the fee worth it in my opinion!

Early Morning Light

Desert Light
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Weekend! Ripley and I have truly been enjoying the arrival of cooler temperatures in the desert. For the past two days, we’ve ventured out for long morning walks. The bright sunshine washed everything in our path with a clear, brilliant light, yet the air was still tempered by the early hour.  After many months of sweltering triple digits, we are savoring the arrival of more fall-like weather.

It May Be Cooler in the Mornings…

but it is still very warm in the afternoon, so long pants are not really an option for me in RL yet.  I was very happy to stumble across this cute Aurola outfit in the Desire shop on the Marketplace!  With a knotted crop top and sporty drawstring-style shorts, this casual combination was ideal for an early morning jaunt with the pupster.  Although I opted for a midnight hue with white piping, Aurola includes a full fat-pack, which offers 18 colors for the top, and 15 for the shorts, so if black isn’t your favorite, you have many other options available.  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile top and shorts combo for only 5L!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you are enjoying some splendid, early autumn weather yourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Queen Bee

Queen Bee_002

I’ve been out gathering the last blooms before fall really sets in. We’ve had a few warm days and some of the flowers still are blooming. The cold nights will soon be frosting over the last of the buds though.

Late Bloomer

This ruffled romper is perfect for picking late blooms with its pretty lacy textured design and soft color. And you can pick it up free at Ashmoot. It’s their exclusive FabFree gift to all of us! Just don your FabFree group tag and head over to the Ashmoot main-store to pick it up.

Available sizes:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Pose pretty!

My pretty pose is another 12L gift from the TWE12VE event! You can find this gift at the B’Style booth and the pose is called “Angel”. It is great for Second Life photographers! And for only 12L, I couldn’t pass it up!

Queen Bee_001

Queen Bee

Since I’m picking all these flowers, I have decided that I’m queen bee for the day, as stated by my most excellent tattoo. This was another TWE12VE event gift. I picked this gift up for 12L at the Lush booth. Inside the box was the cute omega applier tattoo pictured above!

A special gift

NSP Florals and [MUSE] sent out their September gift via group notices with a special announcement that their main-store would be temporarily closed due to an SL glitch (it will reopen as soon as possible). In the meantime you can get the current group gift in the notices (but hurry, notices only stay active for two weeks and it’s already been a few days). That’s where I got my beautiful set of 50s swing jewelry that I paired with my outfit.

Note* If you’re not already in the group, copy and paste this: secondlife:///app/group/fc7863f9-aea1-e3d3-9705-b37dd4bcd531/about into local chat and use it to join the group!

Don’t worry, the NSP Florals satellite store is still open and you can go to it to do your regular shopping for now using this teleport by clicking here. And the main-store will be back up soon! In the meantime, pick up the group gift from the notices!

Siren of the Sea

Siren of the SeaKelpies

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s the end of the week already?! I know I’m ready for the weekend. I’ve talked before about being drawn to the sea, about having a great love for the water. When I saw this kelpie jewelry set group gift at Vengeful Threads, I might have squealed with delight! Half fish half horse, these mythological creatures are a favorite of mine. What better excuse to fashion my pixel self into a benevolent siren of the sea. The Vengeful Threads group gift is FREE to all group members and the group is FREE to join at this time. The gift includes the gauged kelpie earrings and matching septum piercing.

Tresses Worthy of a Siren

Thanks to Astrid having posted about the Anniversary round of TWE12VE, I decided to check it out for myself. You can take a look at her post featuring a few gifts from the TWE12VE event here. Needless to say I am not at all disappointed in the gifts I picked up. Keeping with the number 12 theme, each vendor has a single gift set out for just 12 lindens. These long pastel locks are a TWE12VE event gift from Firelight Hair. This luscious long hair style from Firelight Hair comes in rigged and unrigged versions, as well as a fit for the bustier ladies. Additionally there is a single color hud with pastel color options.

Opalescent Claws

There is something mythological about the opalescent shimmer of the nail applier gift at TWE12VE by LIVIA. It is really beautiful in person. I can honestly say that even with my usual preference of dark polish, this is my new favorite manicure. The set from LIVIA will work for both fingernails and toenails. The all-in-one hud allows you to pick between 3 variations of this beautiful polish, or use all 3 of them at once. Like all the gifts at the TWE12VE event, this one is just 12 linden.

Appliers Included (all in 1 hud): Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Resting Witch Face

RWF1
Resting Witch Face

Hello hello Fab Free! Don’t worry, I’m not really gloomy. I just have “Resting Witch Face.” I’m sure some of you can relate to this. I’ve often been told I look upset or even angry when I am genuinely not. I just happen to look that way. So when I saw this FREE Subscriber gift tumbler from Astralia, I had to have it. Admittedly the rest of this look is inspired by the travel mug that cheekily reads “Resting Witch Face” with an arrow pointing up. To get your copy simply head over to Astralia and join their subscriber, then click the gift vendor and the cup will be sent to you.

The TRUTH

This hairstyle, much like Pru’s facial expression, is rather witchy if I do say so myself! These cropped curls are the September Group Gift for TRUTH VIP Group members. As with all the group gifts from TRUTH, this one is a fatpack. Additionally it has a stylist hud so you can change up the style of the hair. I went with this little side braid. I think I’ll be wearing it for a while. Currently the TRUTH VIP group is 350 linden to join.

Cubic Cherries

The top and the bindi Pru has on are both recent group gifts at Cubic Cherry. I think there was even another group gift sent out in the group notices today! I know there are several available at the store. Anyway, I digress, this top is really cute if you’re going for a casual goth look. It comes in a single mesh size (which I think is meant for TMP and could easily be unisex), and in 4 color variations, black & white (shown), black & red, white & black, and white & red. The top fits like a slouchy over-sized tee on my shape/body, which I’m totally okay with. The second gift is the triangular Norse bindi. I like bindis in general, but I think this one is very cool because it’s different from a lot of the ones I am used to seeing. This Cubic Cherry gift comes in black (shown), brass, gold, and silver. At this time the Cubic Cherry group is 66 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic_001

TWE12VE is a new event this year that begins on the 12th of each month. To celebrate their first year, creators are giving gifts for just 12L each at their booths. I’m here to show you a few of the fantastic finds I picked up when I went to check out the goings on!

Do you believe?

I believe in magic! And tee shirts! I’ve become an avid fan of JellyRoll clothing since I discovered the cute brand, and JellyRoll is at TWE12VE with a few new releases as well as a 12L gift. Their gift, which you can pick up for just 12L, is a texture change tee called Magic that comes with a hud with four different textures. I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this post so you can see all the textures available. It comes in several sizes to accommodate many mesh body types as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something magical

I stopped by the Adorably Strange Wares booth and picked up their 12L gift and was thrilled with what I found when I unpacked the box. I rezzed it out and discovered that it was floor glitter! You can get a pretty good idea of the look of it in the picture above, but the picture doesn’t really do it justice. The floor glitter shimmers, glitters, and moves just like magic and a swatch of it that covers a fairly good sized area is only 3 prim to set out. The gift is copiable so you can set out as many as you need to decorate your area!

Last touches

I finished off my look with a gift from Indigenous Designs. For just 12L, I picked up their gift box and this Rose Choker was in the box. There were two in the box actually… one in gold and one in silver. I’m wearing the silver in the picture above. The details on this choker are really pretty and it makes a nice final touch to a casual outfit (or perhaps for a more formal date?). Either way, I was charmed by its look!
