A Moment of Zen

727_001

 

Good Monday everyone!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and are refreshed and ready for a brand new week. I’m starting off the week by staying in my new favorite pajamas all day long!  These soft, silky mesh pants are a bit of an older group gift from Red Sand, but still available (along with a slew of other great gifts for men and women).  The package contains the pants in 5 sizes and two colors, along with matching tops.

I could not help but pair the pants with this cute scooped tee from Foxy.   You can find it on the discount wall, packaged with a pair of adorable shorts for only $10.  I love the dark shading and the fact it comes will appliers!

Last week I showed off some group gifts from Dead Apples, this week I made the trip again and picked up this soft, sweet makeup kit for only $10 L.  It is called Cinema Makeup, and gives your eyelids a tint and your cheeks a glow.

When I need a moment of zen, Black Kite is my favorite sim to hide and just relax.  (Well, and there are gachas!) It is beautiful sim, and provided the backdrops for these pictures.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Xmas in JulyWe’re starting to wind down to the end of July, and there are a whole bunch of hunts ending on the 31st that you probably want to get in on. There is no shortage of themes… sun, cats, explosions, tea, vikings, and yes… even Christmas. That’s right… Christmas. Just have a look at the hunts in this report if you don’t believe me.

Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

CasualFun3

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service :) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

CasualFun4

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

CasualFun2

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area :) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

Topsy Turvy

Hello and happy Friday, my FabFree Dears! I’m getting ready for the weekend by going completely casual! Well… I’m getting ready for a casual weekend in SL… in RL not so much….

topsyTurvy_001

ANY way…  let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started my casual Friday with these cute shorts from WallFlower. The ‘Daisy Denim’ shorts are part of the Beached Bunny Hunt and are a great 1L prize. Nice and versital. They come in system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Omega. It’s always good to see well done system layer items! On top, I have a cute lace side tie top from ‘New to me’ designer: Lowkey Shawty. The Knotted top is a dollarbie on Lowkey’s Marketplace page but there are many cute things in the main store too.

 

topsyTurvy_003

On top.. too or would that be two….  I have another fab design from our own FabFree Designer, More than Ever! The Blue Tie Dye tee is part of the Summer Hunt 2015 on the Flawless Sim. Each of the prizes is between 10 and 15L which sounds like a lot till you see the prizes. There are kiosks set up on the corners of the Sim displaying all the prizes from the shops so you can pick which prizes you want to hunt for. And trust me… you will want a bunch of them!

The 1L Beached Bunny Hunt runs until July 31st and the Summer Hunt runs until July 26th so Happy Hunting and have a great weekend!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL picnic-day-hat-hunt-posterGood Morning Fabulous Fans! There are lots of great hunts going on right now, but if you like picnics (and who doesn’t) and you like hats (and who doesn’t) then you should check out the Picnic Day Hat Hunt which just started today.

Another hot hunt right now is Around The Grid In 80 Days Hunt 3. This is a big hunt with 129 stops, but yes, it really does last for 80 days so we have plenty of time to get it done. I have it right near the top of my list of “hunts to do.”

Still unclear on the whole hunting thing? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get in on the action. Pay them a visit and you’ll be good to go! Then poke all the hunt names below for more info on each one.

Welcome To Fantasy Island!

71415 tiffany 1

I always wanted to say that in my best, most romantic Spanish accent possible. For me growing up, Ricardo Montalbán was very cool, and when he greeted the guests on the TV show Fantasy Island with that iconic greeting, I realized nothing in the world was cooler than being a very rich man in a white suit. Oh yeah, the show had all kinds of mushy nonsense in it as well, but for me it’s the suit that I find unforgettable!

My memories of that show came flooding back when I saw what Tiffany Designs has put out as a group gift: this fantastic white suit! Now, it isn’t exactly the same suit as he wore in that tropical paradise, but it doesn’t matter. It is beautifully made and gives that same “I am so rich, I am going to order extra hot sauce on my chicken wings without giving it a second thought” kind of look. The Tiffany Designs Rey Mesh Formal Suit in white comes in two pieces: The upper (consisting of the white jacket, black shirt and dark red tie ) and the lower (the white suit pants). Each piece is offered in five sizes to help you get a good fit. If you click on the picture above and then click once more to zoom in, you can see it is nicely textured too. The suit is a FREE group gift, but Tiffany Designs will cost 50L to join. This outfit alone is worth that. The group gift will likely be changing this weekend so run there to pick this up as soon as possible and get ready to pick up another quality outfit in just a few more days. In real life, this kind of clothing wouldn’t last ten minutes on me without getting ruined in some random, yet entertaining, way. This is about fantasy though, and not practicality. So, chicken wings be damned! I finally have my fantasy summer suit!

Getting out of the summer sun, I couldn’t wait to show you a new hunt prize from the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt that just started two days ago. The Moon Willow Designs Ven Outfit in Tan is a stylish set consisting of an earth tones vest with a very detailed (but easy on the eyes) fabric texture and a tan shirt designed to be worn under it. The shirt looks sharp and is well textured, but carries the shadow of the vest on it, so that using it without the vest is unlikely. Taken as a unit though, both pieces look very nice together and would be a trendy choice to wear as the summer begins to wane and the nights grow cooler. The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt prizes cost only 1L, and the hunt object you are looking for is a rolled up scroll or map.

Lastly, I had to indulge in my Siamese cat fascination a moment. The coolest cats I ever shared space with were Siamese. The Kitty Shape Wear “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt has a cute cartoon featuring two of them on the front. As an experienced Siamese cat person, I can tell you most assuredly they are plotting something evil together. Still, when you look that good, a li’l bit of evil is entirely forgivable. The shirt is tan, comes in five sizes and is wide at the bottom to avoid conflicting with mesh jeans. Finding something to wear with it will be a breeze. The “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt is a 1L prize from the Cats Hunt and the hunt object you are looking for is a small paw print.

Well, I shall wave my farewell from my own personal Fantasy Island, where I stroll about unworried about getting catsup and mustard all over my dapper white suit. Maybe the time has come for me to begin the next phase of my life: the “Gentleman Cat Rancher” phase. Until I do, however, have fun and I’ll see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Summer Time, and the Livin’s Easy

Summer Heat

This is the time of year when if you live in the south, you want to wear as little as possible as often as possible. It’s just to darn hot outside! So for this post, Pru is wearing a vibrant pink bikini (and this one is mini!) by Holli Pocket that you can pick up for FREE at Fab Free Headquarters. I do think the little bit of white lace on the bikini top is a nice detail. This FREE gift at FFHQ comes in regular system layers, and includes an Omega applier.

To go over her itsy bitsy teeny weeny pink bikini bottoms, Pru is also wearing some super cute boy shorts by Pixy Stix. These shorties are a current gacha prize at the Oh My Gacha event. There are several patterns available at just 50 lindens per play at Oh My Gacha. I also love these kinds of shorts for just lazing around the house!

Last but not at all least, this striking toffee toned skin is a current VIP group gift from Birdy. The gift costs an initial 1 linden but the 1 linden is instantly refunded. If  you’re not already a Birdy group member, the one time join fee is 150 lindens, however there are 2 group gifts skins (this one included) and you can get some of the appliers to go with the skins for just 1 linden. This gift includes an applier for Naym Naym mouth, a tattoo freckle layer, face dew in 2 shades, 3 shades of contouring, 3 shades of gloss, eyeliner, as well as a no brows version of the skin.

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and staying cool!

Retail Therapy Begins with Ice Cream

Demons Eat Ice Cream

Even a devil with horns and a tail needs to beat the heat this summer. What better way to cool off than with some delicious ice cream?! Label Motion recently sent out this fun summery ice cream treat to their subscribo members. The mesh ice cream cone comes in 4 variations, each with a right or left hold pose. Join the subscribo at Label Motion to get this FREE gift. You might have to check the history.

Always on the lookout for cute outfits, I came across this strapless top and shorts outfit by Entice at the Retail Therapy Event. I love the vibrant shade of lemon yellow in this top. I’m often drawn to yellow lately, maybe because it reminds me of things I enjoy like citrus and sunshine. The outfit is fully mesh and comes in standard sizes with alpha layers for just 75 lindens. Don’t forget to check out the other great deals from Entice and a slew of other participating stores at Retail Therapy.
