Jump the Fence

Jump the Fence

It wasn’t easy getting past the crowds to get into this round of Fameshed, but it was worth it! Have you heard the news? It’s Fameshed‘s 4th anniversary, and that means gifts! Thankfully, creators have generously remembered us menfolk!

I was able to pick up a couple of really outstanding gifts I wanted to share with you. You’ll have plenty of time to jump to Fameshed later if you don’t want to fight the crowds just yet, as it will be running until May 27th.

I picked up this really fantastic mesh shirt in all the standard sizes by etham called “Patrick Jumper” as the first FREE gift I wanted to share with you. You do need to wear the Fameshed group tag, but the group is FREE to join, so you just need a free group slot. This shirt is of excellent quality and make, and worth putting in your inventory.

I also grabbed this fence you see behind me. It too is a FREE gift at Fameshed being offered by Di’Cor. There are two parts in the gift, the straight links, and a corner link, so you can make a fence to suit your needs. Each piece is 4 prim, and when two are linked they add up to 7 (instead of 8). They are high detail mesh.

Mello Lemonade

Hey There Fab Free’rs! After a rather long weekend, I’m back and I of course have awesome goodies to share with you! First, who doesn’t like a good up-do this time of year? It’s been muggy in my part of the world thanks to the unusual amount of rain, and the last thing I want is my hair making me feel hot and sticky. This messy bun is the current group gift at a hair shop called Mello. The Mello group is FREE to join, so this cute style is absolutely FREE, you just need a group slot. The gift includes a color change hud with a wide variety of pastel colors.
JLZ Floral Halter Additionally, I picked up this sweet little tie-back halter top at JLZ Fashion. This mesh top is their dollarbie Flowerage Hunt prize. The Flowerage hunt started a few days ago, and Astrid showed us another of the gifts in her post here. This cute floral top is also excellent for keeping cool as the seasons become warmer. The top is fully mesh, and includes many mesh sizes, there’s definitely one that will fit just about any avatar shape. You’ll definitely want to head over to JLZ Fashion and hunt down this adorable dollarbie.

Two to Tango

Two to Tango

Prudence tipped me off on a sweet set of hunt gifts at Sparrow by Design… that had Loki and I tangoing off that direction!

I scored a sublime dress with this beautiful floral print in all the standard mesh sizes. It comes in a few layered pieces, so you can leave some of the layers off, if you want a slimmer fit, but I decided I loved the flounce! For only 1L and a little bit of hunting for the tulip at the shop, this dress suited my fancy just fine!

Loki picked up this sweater and shirt with the floral tie… and the tie just happens to match my dress. Again, his item was just 1L. Both of these are at Sparrow by Design and are the store’s lovely contribution to the Flowerage Hunt which runs through the end of May.

We are off for our tango! Happy hunting!

Gala Roses

Gala Roses

If April Showers bring May flowers… I’m all in! Either way, I have a couple of pretty group gifts to share with you:)

TBO The Beautiful Ones has a pretty teal colored gift dress called Gala for its group members. This dress is FREE with your 25L group membership, OR if you are already a member of the subscribo (not a new subscriber… so if you aren’t already subscribed, hit that subscriber to get in on future offers!) you can just hit the subscriber to get the gift as a second option!

This sweet dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitted mesh, Physique, and Maitreya.

I paired my new dress with the April group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group tag is 200L, but you’ll have access to lots of past group gifts as well, and I suspect that a fresh new May group gift will be coming out soon too! This beautiful Chainmail & Roses collar set off my dress very nicely. It also comes with a hud to change the colors (8 choices for the roses, 3 choices for the metals), making this a very versatile piece for your jewelry box!

Siren Today

Siren Today 1

It’s been a while since I roleplayed my sexy siren! But I was inspired to bring her out of my inventory by a couple of beautiful 30L Saturday offerings today! If you stop by Whatz main-store, you can pick up the Ariel outfit in deep blue today for only 30L. It includes this mesh mermaid skirt in all the standard sizes, the starfish belt, and the starfish half-top. All the pieces are mesh and fit like a dream.

Siren Today 2

I wanted some pretty jewelry to compliment my look… all us water-folk love the shinies of course😉

I found just what I wanted at Jinx. Now in the picture above I’m actually only wearing the jewelry from what is a full mesh outfit that you’ll get for your 30L! Since I’m only sporting the jewelry, I am showing you the vendor advertisement for the full outfit below. So my 30L for the jewelry, not only spiced up my Siren’s attire, but also scored me a beautiful and versatile second outfit! Win, win!

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Good evening lovelies! I think I have put together the girliest outfit I could imagine, complete with bows, flower prints, ruffles and lace. Would you believe, you can have all this girly-goodness for under L$40! Yes, really.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Let me start with my skirt, as I truly believe, especially from the backside, this is the star of my show…or should I say the bow of my show. *grins for a minute* My fabulous Gift Wrap skirt is from Promagic, and you can find this colour, and several others, on the Marketplace, for only L$10 each. It is mesh, comes in the standard sizes, and come on…just look at that bow! Love it.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Needing something as equally pretty for my top, I kept searching on the Marketplace and stumbled across The Sea Hole Outlet! Do you remember The Sea Hole store, I still have so many items from that store, and was bummed when it closed. Now, I don’t know if I had just missed seeing items from there on the Marketplace all these years, or if they were just more recently added, but you can find so many of those wonderful pre-mesh clothing pieces, and the prices are unbelievable! I picked up the Odette Bustier in the Rosey Real print, HERE, for only L$8. It is clothing layers only, sorry mesh body wearers, but for those of us still using system bodies, there is nothing wrong with a great quality, clothing layer item.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

If you can’t tell, my inspiration for picking the specific colours I did for my skirt and top, came from these to-die-for shoes. Yup, they were the starting point for my whole outfit. My Lari heels are from a new-to-me store called BOOB-LiSH, and are actually a L$10 steal at The Dark Side event. They are meant for SLink high feet, and honestly, my picture does not do them justice, they are worth way more than the L$10 asked for. Let me warn you, I was late in heading over to this event, so you only have 1 day left to get over there, as this event ends tomorrow (Saturday, April 30th). It’s well worth the rushed trip though, as almost every store participating has a L$10 item out, and believe me, if there was more time, I’d show you a lot more.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

I am managing to show off one other L$10 deal from The Dark Side. This time, it’s from *PB* Nails, and it is my Step Into The Light Mani and Pedi. I’ve included a shot of the ad to show off all the sweet colours you have to choose from for this SLink nail applier hud. They are perfect for Spring/Summer!

The one last item I wanted to point out, is my hair. If my hair in RL was just a touch longer, it could look just like the cute hair I have on here in SL. The Beusy June Gift is a complete fatpack of a rigged mesh hair, and you can find this on the Marketplace for only L$1. Seriously.

So, if you’ve been adding it up, my totally girly outfit is a grand total of L$39, and I think that is a heck of a deal. Even better, I did all the hard work of putting it together for you! LOL. Alrighty, I must be off, I think it’s bedtime. I am being bombarded by family from out-of-town all day tomorrow, so I am really going to need to get all the sleep I can. If I don’t manage to make it back before the weekend is over, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and I will be back soon. Until next time, TTFN!

Raspberry Sorbet I Think I Love You

Raspberry Sorbet

It’s Friday Fab Free’rs and I couldn’t be happier! Though the week went by quickly, for me anyway, it was still quite a week. Thankfully I have my excursions in Second Life to relax and enjoy some “me” time. While on said excursions in the world of SL, I came across the Sanarae event, and the many Lucky Boards there. As mentioned in my previous post, the free-to-join Sanarae group is required for the Lucky Boards. This adorably flirty dress from a shop called Sorbet is one of the many lucky board gifts at Sanarae.

I love love love the rock-a-billy pinup look to this dress! I really can’t say anything negative about this fully mesh dress. The colors are great, and I really like the flare of the skirt. This dress by Sorbet is honestly my personal favorite of the FREE Lucky Board prizes at Sanarae.

To emphasize the rock-a-billy part of this pinup look, I picked up the April group gift from EMO-tions. This retro pony with bandanna and rolled bangs is just too perfect. The EMO-tions group is FREE to join, making this fun hairstyle FREE as well. It comes in the blonde tones, and 4 color options for the bandanna. Also you can pick up a set of bangs, and some hair-base appliers for FREE at EMO-tions. Don’t forget to wear your group tag!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
