Zoltar Says

RowenaMM
I came to the great and powerful Zoltar for a wish to be granted at Tralala’s Diner, but he had advice for me instead.  “Hard work pays off over time, but laziness… it pays off right now.”.  Sage advice I suppose… I should probably take the day off and watch Netflix 🙂

Before I get into lazy mode

I wanted to share news about a free outfit I found at Rowena’s Designs in a midnight mania board!  The Jenny Vest and Jeans Set is the prize loaded into the midnight mania board at Rowena’s Designs (no need to join the group to participate).  It includes the floral printed vest and denim jeans as shown in the photo.  They both come in several mesh sizes as well as the jeans have mid feet height and high feet height options.  The most exciting part about this outfit is that there is a texture change HUD included that allows you to change the colour of the vest, belt and jeans in a handfull of different colours, so you can wear this outfit over and over again in whatever shade suits you that day!

Sizes Included:

  • Jeans – High Heels: XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Jeans – High Heels: Maitreya Lara
  • Jeans – High Heels: Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Jeans – High Heels: Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis
  • Jeans – High Heels: TMP
  • Jeans – Mid Heels: XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer

I Can Only Be Me

I Can Only Be Me

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I have a penchant for outfits that are a bit… different. You can often find me wearing something slightly unique in SL, whether that’s a set of cat ears, long pastel hair, or perhaps a shiny purple bodysuit – or all of those at once!  I love expressing my wild side in SL, because events in RL that call for a set of heels and a fur stole are few and far between!

Midnight Magic

I found my unique free look today at rOrO The creator, Rowan Carroll has put out a fabulous bodysuit and matching fur stole on the midnight madness board.  I adore the lavender shade, the sheerness of the fabric in all the right places,  and how plush the stole looks.  Definitely fits in with my unique SL style!  You can grab it too by slapping (or caressing fondly, your choice…) the midnight madness board and keeping those fingers crossed. Even better, grab a few friends and get them all to click for better chances!  You only need 10 people to click and it’s all yours!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • eBody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Small and Large AV versions

Building an Empire

After a few quiet months, Empire have updated their group gifts!  Empire puts out a new group gift every second month, and the November and January gifts are now available!  I’ve chosen to show you the gorgeous Altheda heels, that have a nice bow on the toes that kinda reminds me of a little bat.  Love it!  You can grab them too by joining the Empire group, which at this time costs 500L to join.  There are a slew of old gifts on the wall which make the join fee more than worth it!  Here’s a closeup for you!

I Can Only Be Me 2

I say be yourself, nobody else is better qualified!

Midnight Violet

Pretty in Purple
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day, when the pupster and I visited TRS Designs, I spotted this gorgeous violet gown on a Midnight Madness board.  It took several attempts before I popped in this morning to discover an inventory offer from the shop.  I couldn’t wait to try on the Sandra Gown!  With its slender decorative straps, eye-catching, lace net waistline, and flattering fit, this free elegant frock is sure to become a favorite of mine for evenings out on the town.  The long skirt offers full coverage along with a slightly flared hemline for ease of movement on the dance floor, while the halter-style neckline allows a sensual glimpse of skin. I thought the bows at the bodice offered just the right decorative element.  There is no group required to enter to win.  All you have to do is travel to the shop, tap the Midnight Madness board, and cross your fingers.  With a low target of only 20 avatars, the odds are in your favor that you will soon possess your very own copy of this lovely outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes lace alpha)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping to you!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Winter is Coming

12-19-2017

Have you hear the news?

Winter is coming. For some, it already has arrived. Instead of reading about it in the newspaper, I’ll go outside and enjoy it first hand. I’ll find a nice place to sit in the sun and watch the world go by… even if it is just for a little while…

Sill POE..

I’ve reached into my hunt bag and found another Peace on Earth Hunt gift, that for one reason or another, I haven’t shown yet. The Bromley Hoodie is the POE hunt gift from Horr Menswear.  The purple hoodie comes in the following sizes:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • CLassic Sizes XS-XL

Something borrowed, something won…

I opened the other group gift from Giz Seorn and borrowed the Group Gift 4 Pants for this look. You can see the first Christmas group gift [HERE]. The pants come in these sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Any store I go into, I slap the midnight mania board, just to give it a nudge. I often find things in my inventory that have me scratching my head as to how I received it. When I was at Moonlitecat Creations, I happened to touch the board and won the Shade Dark Sneakers. the sneakers comes in sizes S-L and one non rigged size.

Neck love….

Group members of tram found a group gift in their notices. The Male Long Scarf is a wonderful Christmas gift that includes several texture HUD’s for colors and prints. Don’t worry ladies, there is a size just for you too!. To get this gift, join the tram group by visiting the store or typing the following into local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/cf49eca5-c71c-aaa7-ba1a-db289ebe9aef/about   and clicking the link. Then look in the notices after joining to pick up the gift (make sure you grab the fixed version).

Tiny Pearls of Snow

Evergreen

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Sunday to you!  Ripley and I encountered this cute, book-loving duo on the Deciduous sim, and I just had to pose with them to take a snapshot.  Aren’t they both adorable?  Mr. Chippers was busily stuffing his cheeks with Christmas cookies while Peeps was scolding him to save some for a poor, hungry bird.  I do hope there will be at least a few crumbs leftover for him!

White as Newly Fallen Snow

While we were out doing a bit of holiday shopping, the pupster and I paid a visit to Sweet E’s Designs, and I spotted a lovely lacey mini dress on the Midnight Madness board.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a quick tap, and continued on my way.  The next morning when I logged in, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer, and quickly set to work opening the package.  Nestled inside, I discovered the White Lace Dress I had hoped to win the day before.  I added the Maitreya applier, and presto – the bodice of the dress instantly appeared, hugging my every curve.  With its vertical piping, plunging neckline, and four gleaming buttons, this dress is just so pretty.  I love the loose cuffs that you add to the sleeves that give the outfit a romantic feel.  An optional collar and skirt panel completed the look, but since the temperature dipped quite low in my area today, I decided to remove the skirt panel and don a long, flowing maxi skirt instead.  This gift makes an adorable mini dress, but also does double duty as a beautifully textured top as well!

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Maitreya, Eve, Omega, Slink and TMP
  • Jacket, shirt and pants layer for classic avatars
  • Sleeves, collar and skirt panel (skirt panel has varieties for mesh and non mesh avatars)

In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman

Well, Izzie Button actually made the snowmen, and boy are they darling!  Set out under the tree at her shop as a free holiday gift to all, are two adorable pearl snowman earrings, each adorned with a bow tie and top hat.  She also included a texture change HUD so you can alter the hue of the pearls by selecting one of nine color options.  I opted to keep the pearly white tone to coordinate with my top.  You can see them better in my close up photo below.  No group membership is required.  All you need to do is teleport to Izzie’s Mainstore, and look under the tree.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the winter blush Serena mentioned in her post {HERE} as well as candy cane eyeliner that Love blogged {HERE}.

Hello Little Snowman

Sad News for Peeps

I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Chippers stuffed every single cookie from the bench into his cheek pockets.  Poor Peeps!  I promised him that Ripley and I would head over to the farm supply store and pick up some birdseed for him, but I think he was really looking forward to that gingerbread.  Hopefully a full bag of sunflower mix will help to console him.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Of Counts and Mince Pies

Of Counts and Mince Pies

The Holiday Season is upon us, and that calls for cute dresses galore!  I was invited to a party by some dude who calls himself “Count Ladislaus”.  He said there would be mulled wine, and mince pies, and all sorts, so I rummaged through my inventory, but alas, no appropriate frock was to be found!   I bundled myself up, and jumped out into the cold to find something that would look festive and not break the bank.

Eureka!

My taxi dropped me off in front of TRS Designs, where there were several group gifts to be had!  The TRS Designs group is free to join, to which I said “huzzah!”.  The Midnight Madness boards caught my fancy as they have rather low goal (20 slaps and you win!) , so I gave them a tap.  Only a few minutes later, and much to my delight, there was a lovely free dress in my inventory!

That evening, I donned my dress, buckled my shoes, got my hair did, and headed to the party!  Turns out Count Ladislaus was nothing but a Baronet, and the mince pies were overcooked.  I guess you can’t have everything in this Second Life!

A Quiet Moment With Idelisa

Solitude

Hello Fabulous Readers!  It was a day to pause and be thankful here in the US as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  After a dinner with family, the pupster and I spent a peaceful evening at the Kittens Cradle sim.  It’s really a wonderful place to explore!

Introducing…Idelisa

In my past couple of posts {HERE} and {HERE}, I’ve shown you some beautiful Lucky Board prizes available at .Lunaria.  While we were waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I spotted a gorgeous long gown on the free Daily Prize Board and gave the vendor a tap.  I waited patiently, then as midnight rolled around, “Idelisa” was delivered to my inventory.  A long white, sleeveless gown, with golden trim, this lovely frock features a fitted bodice and a skirt which falls gracefully to floor level.  I really like the way the ivory fabric fades into sparkling golden tones at the hemline.  With sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies, this free frock will fit a majority of avatars.  The target for the daily prize is just 25, so teleport on over to the shop, invite your friends, and it’s a pretty good bet that the goal of 25 slaps will be met!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Physique
  • Venus

After our delicious turkey dinner, we sliced into that pumpkin pie I’ve been talking about and it was …. heavenly!  Thank goodness it turned out ok……I’ve been looking forward to it for days! 🙂  Maybe I should make pies more often, but then again, that was RL, not SL, so calories count.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cotton Candy After Midnight

Wrapped in a Cozy Cardigan

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  On chilly fall days such as this, I love, love, love to cloak myself in a toasty warm cardigan.  Ripley and I recently teleported over to @rOrO to take a look around, and I’m so glad we did!  I picked up my new, super-long sweater as a free Midnight Mania prize there.  All I had to do was tap the board on the wall, cross my fingers, and hope that the target of 10 slaps would be reached by midnight.  Sure enough, when the clock struck 12, my prize was delivered!

Raspberry and Teal

Featuring an ombre color scheme composed of a jewel-like raspberry hue fading to a dusky teal, this sweater-jacket kept both my arms and legs shielded from the brisk air.  The playful diamond-shaped pattern on the outer shell coordinated beautifully with the solid-colored shirt underneath.  This sexy little crop top offered a glimpse of my tummy, but I was comforted by the fact that should the wintery air become too uncomfortable, all I had to do was pull together the sides of my cardigan to warm up.  I really liked the added detail of the dark necklace, which is included as part of the top.   To pick up this Cotton Candy Argyle Cardigan and Shirt for yourself, simply journey to @rOrO and give the board a tap.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

While you’re at the store,  here’s hoping that your letter will come up on the lucky boards.  There are also a variety of dollarbies on the wall offered for sale, and a collection of group gifts as well, including one for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
