Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Hello again everybody. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I know I am! To make this weekend even better, I’ve got a few Marketplace finds for you, 2 great group gifts, and a lovely, wearable demo. Wow, I better get started!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Let’s start with the Marketplace. My sexy dress is called Lanelle, and it is a dollarbie from Tee*fy. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh version for the Maitreya Lara body. My other Marketplace find are my sweet heels. The Nix High Heels also only L$1, were put out as a special for Halloween, from Vowtte, and are still available. They are meant for SLink and Bellezza high feet, and you actually get 2 pairs, the black ones that I am showing off, and a purple pair as well. The texturing on them is amazing, and they are well worth that L$1! (Thanks for the tip on these amazing shoes Glimmer :) )

Feeling a little monochromatic

OK, on to the group gifts. Have you been admiring my beautiful skin? Well, lucky for all of you, it is the most recent Toxxic Design Studio’s group gift from AlterEgo. The lovely Adriana in the rose skin tone, is free for group members, and even better, the group is free to join! You get 2 skins, one with red eyebrows, and the one I am wearing, a browless version. There is also a loudmouth applier, a shape, an eyelash remover, as well as a few brow shapes. Any other appliers you need, have been placed right in front of the sign for your convenience (I hate having to go exploring to find corresponding appliers!), they will need to be purchased for a small fee. The other group gift I am wearing, my pearl jewelry set, comes from Chop Zuey, and is a free gift for members of the Womenstuff group, available in the ‘stuff Lounge. If the To The Daisy set looks a little familiar, you may recall that Astrid had previously shown it to all of you HERE, when Chop Zuey had it out as one of their own group gifts. So if you missed grabbing it then, now’s your chance! You get right and left bracelets, earrings, a ring, and 3 different necklaces that you can wear individually, or stack them all together like I have done. The Womenstuff group has a small join fee of L$50, but as you should already know (from the numerous posts showing off gifts from this group) it is well worth it!

Feeling a little monochromatic

The last piece I want to tell you about, my hair,  may also seem a bit familiar, as Love first modeled it for you HERE as a free group gift.  However, the Sheena hair from LeLutka is now available, free for everyone, as a free wearable colour demo! This rigged mesh style, is a full colour hud pack to allow you to see all the different colours available for LeLutka hair. I really do love wearable demos, it’s a great excuse to put out a freebie, even better when it’s as pretty as this hair is.

I have to say, I am really loving this monochromatic look I’ve put together with all these great finds. Would you believe, other than the choice in hair colour, though even my normal black would have worked, I did not plan it like this at all. Sometimes it just works out perfectly this way :) . Alright lovelies, that is all I have for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!!

However, I stumbled over the Hunt prize while I was hunting in LM&RS for something else. I hope Fi’s Hunts gets back up and running soon. I don’t know if the hunt was canceled or on hold.  But, as of this posting, the Add Some Red prize is out and available at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Please check back for any updates.

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 2

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

Your Friday Hunt Report

newKTMHhuntadGreetings once again Fabulous Friends! If you love romance, then February is the month for you. There are all sorts of Valentine themed hunts to participate in. Love is in the air!

There are quite a few grid wide hunts devoted to Valentine’s Day, and sim and store hunts devoted to hearts are cropping up every day. So have a look at the list. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will get you all “twitterpated.”

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Just poke the hunt names for more information on each one. I’m sure you can find one that makes your “shopping brain” happy!

See you out on the hunt!

Purple Tiger

Purple Tiger

Even in real life, one of my favorite colors to wear is purple! So when I saw the FREE gift dress that Entice was offering for SL frees & offers group members (the group is FREE to join), I was really excited! This dangerously sexy Delilah dress in Purple Tiger is available right now if you hop over to Entice to pick it up! It includes the dress in all the standard mesh sizes as well as system layer stockings.

Back in October, Entice held a hunt at Free Dove, where our amazing Pru showed us the orange version of this dress HERE. If you missed picking it up in orange, or want to own it in purple, now is your chance!

Just below the gift board, Entice is offering the matching Delilah purple ankle boots for only 85L (they are on sale for a limited time). That’s a touch over the usual 75L limit, but I wanted to let you in on the secret!

I also found the matching Delilah Cuffs on the Marketplace in a full fatpack for only 75L. That’s 10 great colors! I wore the purple to match the dress, but for the little sum of 75L, you are getting a great deal on a great accessory!

Snakes and Dragons

Dragons and Snakes 1

There are some great hunts going on at the moment and I had to satisfy my inner hunter again… once more at OMG! Inc. This time, I snatched up the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt gift… which is this totally FREE sexy dress called Slither Snakeskin. I’m wearing it in red in the picture above, but what I really love is that the dress comes with a color change hud with 8 color choices! It’s mesh in all the standard sizes, so you are sure to find your fit, as well.

You have until February 15th to grab up this sensual number, so don’t stress if you want to finish out a few of the ending January hunts first :)

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

Dragons and Snakes Collage

I wanted a great set of heels to go with my new dress, and the Black and White Hunt did not disappoint! However it IS one of those hunts that is coming to a rapid close… and ends on January 31. You’ll need to hurry if you want to snag a set of my heels by Lindy’s Designs in the pictures above. These are FREE for the Black and White Hunt and are on the Black Path and are made for slink high feet.

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

I rounded out my look with a necklace from Chop Zuey. One of the latest group gifts is this fantastic Dragon Flight necklace, which you can get FREE by wearing your group tag. The group is 350 to join, but the gifts are always plentiful! So you’ll have your money’s worth in no time! To note: this necklace is a men’s piece, however I was easily able to resize it to fit my female shape… and I think it works great as unisex jewelry!

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
