Cute as F*ck

Getting my own little corner…

After complaining publicly that I am not allowed to decorate, I was graciously given (with dragon eyes) a corner to decorate all by myself. The only stipulation was it has to match the rest of the room (ie. no sports, pinup, or movie posters).  I took the challenge and now I think my little corner is cute as f*ck. That’s because I shopped for all my decorating needs at ::cute as f*ck::. By joining the group for FREE, I was able to get this month’s FREE group gift, Mirror w Post Its. While I was there, I also found the  I Love You More Chalkboard, part of the Where’s Cupid Hunt for just $1L.

Casual as a teddy bear…

Not only are my decorating skills cute as f*ck, but so is the outfit I’m wearing from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos. The Teddy Bear Casual Outfit is the hunt gift on the For Him Hunt 3. Find the hunt item and this outfit, hoodie, t-shirt, jeans and sandals, can be yours for a single linden $1L. I wonder if I can get on one of those home decorating shows now…

Early Dismissal

Wilsons- For Him Hunt

Sending them home…

There is nothing better than to hear a rumor that there is an early dismissal because of a maintenance issue. It’s even better when you know and the students don’t. It seems like dropping hints to today’s youth is like talking to this chalkboard behind me. When the “official” announcement was made, the building erupted into total chaos. I’m glad they held off letting the cat out of the bag for as long as they did. I also guess I’ll save my new outfit I picked up at Wilson’s Designs for another day as well. The Donnie Mesh Outfit can be found on the For Him Hunt 3 for just $1L. Both the pants and blazer come in standard sizes of XS-XL. I think I’ll go home and put on something less business like and maybe even take a nap! Oh, In case you’re wondering what is written on the blackboard behind me, I really couldn’t tell you.. Math isn’t my subject… 🙂

For Warm Sunny Days

Dead Dollz Imbue
Well Hello Fab Free’rs, no matter what the groundhog says I’m pretty sure I can already smell spring. The weather however seems to have no idea what season it is nor which is coming! Spring is all over these group gifts I picked up at Dead Dollz and Imbue. While, I do love sweaters and sweater weather, I have to admit it does feel good to put on something meant for warm sunny days.

Dead Dollz Dress

This stunner of a red dress is the latest group gift from Dead Dollz. Though it only comes in a single size, the dress fit my Maitreya Lara body like a glove. Even with all the detailed edging and low points under the arms and down the back, this mesh dress moves well. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens, which this dress alone is well worth in my opinion.

Imbue Shoulder Bag 

I love the look of this bag from Imbue! The style of this cute mesh shoulder bag is such that it would match just about any outfit, whether you’re still sporting your winter fashion or you’ve started to dig out that spring wardrobe. I think the floral pattern is beautiful, and I even like how the fringe looks when your avatar moves. The Imbue group has a one time join fee of 99 lindens.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

HairRunAway – [RA] Daline Hair – Essential

Skin – Essences – Digby

Head – CATWA HEAD Helena

Dress – .::Dead Dollz::. Anja – Red – FREE Group Gift/Group is 250L to Join 

Bag imbue. fringe bag – FREE Group Gift/Group is 99L to Join 

Body/Hands – Maitreya – Lara

Fab Free Designer Friday – 1/27/2017 – House of Ruby

House of Ruby
Hello Fab Free! It’s Friday and I’m ready to sing… okay maybe not sing, no one wants to hear me sing, but I am ready for this weeks addition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I am happy to feature House of Ruby. House of Ruby is the place to go for sexy yet casual under things. The shop specializes in mostly applier underwear and lingerie type clothing for both men and women. At the House of Ruby landing point you’ll be greeted by the above pictured wall with all the important store information, and possibly the store kitty! You’ll notice right away that though the shop is small, it’s well set up and easy to navigate. Directly to the right from the House of Ruby information wall you’ll see several gifts.
HoR Gifts
Some of the gifts in this section appear to be former hunt items. There’s also a men’s and a women’s group gift. You’ll also want to make sure to pick up the box on the floor. It’s packed full of all the House of Ruby group gifts from 2016! The House of Ruby group is FREE to join. Then of course there’s the Fab Free exclusive gift which Astrid had previously shown in her blog post here. Don’t forget you’ll need to switch over to your Fab Free group tag for that gift. Finally, don’t forget to join the subscriber while you’re there. There’s a FREE subscriber gift given out to new subscribers. Remember, House of Ruby has items for both men and women, so don’t miss out!

Think Pink

Pink_001

Think pink.

Keke is giving out a lovely free gift to remind us that girl power is important, and I couldn’t help but snatch it up. If you are a member of keke (or join the group for free, there is no join fee) you can pick up one of their pink pussy hats, kitten inspired, to support women’s rights across the globe.

The hat is mesh and fit down nicely over my Catwa mesh head (though I did use the Catwa base hair applier under it), and I didn’t have to do any adjusting for fit at all!

This hat is a lovely reminder of unity, support, love, and equality for women world-wide. 🙂

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
