A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sleepless Nights

18-01-18

Hello 3AM…

Everyone goes through this eventually. Waking up in the middle of the night wide awake and no matter how hard you try, there is just no getting back to sleep. So I got dressed and decided to walk the lonely streets of Second Life to burn off this wide awake feeling.

An eye opener…

I saw a free group gift shirt on the feeds at Lupus Femina and when I arrived and joined the group for FREE, I noticed there was also a FREE complete outfit for a group gift. The Aiden Outfit comes with a jacket in two fitmesh sizes and classic sizes small, medium, and large. The pants come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Also in the gift are sneakers, which is a good thing with all the walking I’m doing tonight. I guess I should wander home and start getting ready for work… *sigh*

I wasn’t about to head out into this frozen tundra without a good pair of winter boots, and just in time… N-Core put these cute Winter Boots out as a free group gift!  They include a texture change HUD with six colours too!  I have added the vendor ad below as well because it turns out that most of the detailing is hidden in the snowy grass :/.

A Fresh Look

18-01-13

Happy Weekend!

I’m taking some time to relax after a hectic and crazy first week back at work. I wasn’t the only one busy this week. She decided to remodel the FabFree Info Hub, her idea of giving it a fresh coat of paint. Along with the regular items such as the group join board and the group gift listing, she/we added new photos of our favorite posts and even a viewer outside to read the latest posts on the blog!

Top it with frosting…

I’ve even given myself a mini makeover recently. I’ve been changing up my hair, have new glasses and have even experimented with different beard appliers. In addition to putting new frosting on this cake, I also found the Jacket Hoodie w/ Shirt, the 1L hunt prize from Get Jiggy! on the Frosting Hunt 2.The jacket combo comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and includes a texture HUD for 19 jacket colors, 8 hoodie colors and 6 shirt patterns. With these endless combinations, you can make over this jacket daily.

Enjoy your weekend. I may even get a real-life makeover myself!

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways
It may be minus a billion outside, but he and I couldn’t be more oblivious to it!

Frosted Snowflakes

At Sweet Intoxication you can hunt down a snowflake icon for The Frosting Hunt 2 this month (ends on January 31st) and gain yourself the matching outfits you see Carson and I wearing tonight.  There are two hunt icons hidden priced at 1L each, one pink for the ladies and one blue for the men.  You’ll find them both in the same spot, but make sure you pick up the right colour for your gender or you’ll be spending 1L you don’t need to!

For Her

The prize for her is a very shimmery long formal gown in ice blue called “Butterfly Gown”.  My favourite feature of this gown is the detailed butterfly at the back.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

For Him

He will receive the handsome shirt and vest combo called “Ethan Shirt” in a matching shade of blue.  This item could even be dressed down with a pair of jeans and worn any time!

Sizes Included:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Setting A Formal Winter Scene

No need to fight the lag for a romantic night of dancing!  Simply head to The Second Life Marketplace and pick up Emma’s Winter Ballroom Skybox by Emma’s @ Blue Moose!  I took this photo inside the beautiful skybox and this is just one little corner.  There is a chandelier in the center that you can turn on and off, and it is actually 20 X 20, so you’ll have plenty of dancing room.  Rez a little snow and some sparkle lights and you’ll be set!  Don’t even worry about the prims… it has a land impact of 4!  The price?  FREE!

Good morning FabFree Readers!  Digging my posh look today?  Well… you should know that you can pick up the fur jacket and velvet dress (with texture change HUD!) both for free – just for being members of their respective store groups!  It’s not often I find a mesh dress that fits under a mesh jacket without any conflicting of the two items, but these two seemed to fit together like they were made for each other.

She wore blue velvet, but also black, green, red and purple too

And They Called It Puppy Love

18-01-10

Puppy Snuggles…

I was out for a morning stroll when these cute little guys came bounding towards me. They were all rambunctious and ready to play. As they circled around my legs, trying to vie for attention, I stumbled and down I went. It’s ok though. A few puppy kisses never hurt anyone.

Winter Style…

My outfit today, even though I’m face up in the snow, is the latest male group gift from Bri Underground. The Eduardo Winter Style Outfit includes a hooded sweatshirt in sizes XS-XL, sneakers, and pants comes fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

The Bri underground group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE to members.

Playing in the snow…

My furry friends are part of the Playing in the Snow pose set by Lil’ Bug, which is featured at the Gacha Guardians Event. Each pose in the set is just 50L per turn.

Well, it’s back to work for me in RL, and quite frankly I don’t wanna.  I’d much rather continue taking it easy, and enjoying the good things in life.  It’s also rather cold in my part of the world, which can be somewhat offputting, to say the least!  In SL, I’m going to take it easy and enjoy the kind of winter you see in the movies – white, not too cold and a little magical.  Sure, it’s not really like that, but a girl can dream!

Hunting for Style

I hopped on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, and made my way to Lune Bleue.  I nosed my way about the store and found the red t-shirt that is the hunt object, which is FREE!  Inside I found this delightful wintery outfit, which is complete with top, skirt, jacket and the little booties you see.  The top and skirt go on in one simple click, and the coat can be worn seperately!  It may not be the most practical winter outfit for RL, but in SL I’m feeling quite fashionable and winter-proof!

Sizes

  • Fitted Mesh with an Alpha Layer
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Fitted Mesh

Time to go and warm up, so I’ll catch you pretty little things later!

B-Ball

BBallA Tickle Trunk of Goodies!

In the group notices of the Vive9 inworld group , you will find three FREE group gifts STUFFED with fatpacks (13 fatpacks to be exact!) of ladies hair, clothing items, footwear and accessories by Vive Nine, Fiore and Ryvolter!  All of these eclectic goodies touching all different genres of style made me think of Mr. Dressup’s Tickle Trunk where he stored endless amounts of random items to make up the costumes used for the skits on the show.  You’ll see… my next post is all the way on the other end of the fashion spectrum lol.  Whatever your personal style is, I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

My Sporty Look Using Three Gifts:

I put my sporty B-Ball look together using three of the gifts in the lot.

  • Fiore Allana:  This hairstyle comes with a regular version and a flip, for ease of use with clothing items and poses and offers a full range of hair colours.
  • Ryvolter Aria Denim Jacket: Fitted for the Maitreya mesh body and may work with others.
  • Vive Nine Jacky Jersey Dress: Comes in XXS – L mesh sizes + alpha layer.

Where to get this stuff

You won’t find this gift in any of the three stores inworld…  Where to find it is in the past notices of the free to join Vive9 inworld group.  You can join the group by copy and pasting this link into local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/0709215a-63e0-554d-060d-f052a3a41911/about
