Silke Smooth

Snapshot_002

Hello everyone :)  For those of you that have jumped on the Lelutka mesh head bandwagon like I have, there is a Lelutka mesh head makeup applier at The Chapter Four as a free group gift throughout this round by The Skinnery!  I am wearing the Silke Lipstick and Eyeshadow applier over my Glam Affair Karin skin. These appliers allow you to wear the eyeshadow and/ or the lips so you can choose just one – or both at the same time.  It is a fantastically free way to add some diversity to your new mesh face!

The cute Manon Ring I am displaying is the free group gift by C’est La Vie at The Chapter Four.  This free group gift comes in a bunch of colours so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.

You’re Worth It

You're Worth It

Hello Fab Free! I’ve recovered from my long weekend and I’m glad to be back. I have a few great group gifts to share with you to get the week started. The first item is the May group gift at Entice, followed by the May group gift at Mes Petites Coutures. I hope you like them.

This on-piece outfit with the gold flourish accent is fully mesh and completely FREE at Entice. I love it when cute outfits come in a single mesh. Sometimes I’m in a rush and outfits like this “You’re Worth It” number from Entice make dressing easy. All you need is an Entce group tag and the outfit is yours. The Entice group is FREE to join.

Next, I picked up this super cute freckled skin at Mes Petites Coutures. The Mes Petites Coutures group is also FREE to join, so this pretty skin is a truly FREE gift. This group gift also includes a matching loud mouth applier. I like the uniqueness of the freckled face on this skin, and the “cookie” tone is a nice warm tan. I liked it so much that I even purchased the Maitreya appliers also available at Mes Petites Coutures.

Lastly, I picked up this pretty little hair piece for just $75 lindens on the Marketplace. I think this accessory from Ity is both pretty and fun. It’s a great alternative to wearing more traditional jewelry when you’re trying to dress up an outfit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Wayward-Hunt-Poster-4-15-to-5-1_1024Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 28.

The Wayward Hunt has been sitting at the top of the list for several days now. I suggest going to the hunt’s own web page and checking out the free bicycle.

Then check out The Vintage Hunt. It’s a pretty good size hunt with 46 stores, and it just started last week so you have lots of time to get through them all.

There are plenty more to choose from. I’m sure you can find one to love.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Hello again, Fab Folks! Thanks to Ms Love’s beautiful post and pics here, you all know that the Black Fashion Fair is in full swing. But there are so many lovely things to be had I wanted to show y’all a few more.

BFFAIRt_001

This is the ‘February’ Dress from Dead Dollz. I love the gorgeous black lace and the sassy split skirt. So very elegant.  And how can you beat the price… it’s free.   Max Gossamer has also set out a great gift for the Fashion Fair. These are the ‘Singapore Swing’ earrings. They come in two lengths and I picked the triple .

BFFair2jpg_001

With all the dollerbies and freebies you might be tempted to just rush in and grab the free/cheap stuff. But be sure to look around. The designers have put out a really awesome Fair. There are lots of “Fair Only” sales and special buys! So take your time and enjoy the shopping!

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!
