Hello Autumn

Hello Autumn

A Change is in the Air…

I have a love/hate relationship with Autumn. I love the changing colors, the crisp browns, golds and oranges of the season. I also love the smell of camp fires, (hard) apple cider, and the crisp air in the evenings. BUT, I hate that the days are getting shorter, (walking the black pup in the dark is no fun) the sky takes on a grayish hue, and the thought that winter is fast approaching.

Fall ‘Stuff…

I decided to take a taxi over to The Menstuff Lounge. They have remodeled since I last visited and have several new gifts on the wall. I decided on an outfit that was fitting of the season. I picked up the gift by Brocade Tiger, the Carlos Pants and Open Blazer. This set comes in two styles. solid (shown) or patterned. I paired it with the Menstuff gift by Just Imagine. With some adjustment I fit the Un Dos Stress Tank under the jacket for a nice Autumn look. All the gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are FREE to members but there is a one time join fee of 50L.

And if you are in the mood for some fall scenery, check out The Autumn Cafe. I’ll see you by the campfire.

Fab Free – Designer Friday – 09/15/2017 – Heaven & Hell

Heaven & Hell Exterior
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here, especially on Friday (okay, almost Saturday)! I’m sure it goes without saying that this is indeed the Fab Free Designer Friday post for the week. Heaven & Hell is this week’s featured designer. Also you’ll be happy to know that Heaven & Hell has clothing for ladies as well as gentlemen. Along with clothing you’ll also find shoes at Heaven & Hell. The style could best be described as fun and flirty, leaning more toward casual clothing, but with some what I would call “date night” looks.

From the moment you enter the Heaven & Hell main shop, it’s obvious there is a lot to see. Just to the right of the circulation desk you’ll see boards mentioning associated groups and events. This is also where you can find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members, just be sure to wear your tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, there’s a joiner above the gift. The Fab Free group is and always will be FREE to join.
Heaven & Hell Offers
Once you’ve picked up your copy of the FREE Fab Free group gift previously announced by Love here, follow the trails on the floor toward the Heaven & Hell group gifts. The Heaven & Hell group is also FREE to join. You’ll find a vendor of FREE female Heaven & Hell group gifts to the left and a vendor of FREE male group gifts by Heaven & Hell to the right. Keep following the paths and you’ll come to a wall full of Lucky Letter boards, half of which require the Heaven & Hell group tag to participate, and half are open to everyone. There are male and female gifts in the Lucky Letter boards also. In the center of the Lucky Letter boards are a couple of Midnight Mania boards which also have a male and a female prize. Finally, you’ll also want to take note of the various “special offer” vendors positioned throughout the store. Happy shopping Fab Free! Enjoy all these awesome FREEbies!

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!

Blueberries at the Gulf of Lune

Cabin Days_001

A friend has been taking me exploring and I’ve found some beautiful sims lately this way. Just this week Gulf of Lune made my list as one of my top favorites (thank you dear friend for showing it to me). It’s a wetlands recreation complete with elk and ducks and country cabins.

New gift at Blueberry.

When I saw the new free to all gift at Blueberry (hurry and get it before it’s gone!), I knew I had my perfect chance to take some pictures at Gulf of Lune. The lacy top was pretty and sexy, but also sort of has that flexible look that could go casual, racy, urban, or country, and I used the (amazingly generous) texture change hud to choose a pretty country blue and pose on one of the cabins at the Sim.

Sizes included:

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

A Bonus!

Not only does the free Blueberry gift include the top in a long version, but it also includes the gift in a short version that you could easily use for a bralette. And with so many options on the color change palette, you’d never run out of lingerie styles! I’ve included a picture below of the “short” version of the gift as well so you can see it. It comes in all the same sizes as the “long” version.

Cabin Days 2_001

I couldn’t resist…

… showing you just how much versatility you will be getting with this free gift. This is a picture of the texture change palette that comes with the new Blueberry gift top. As you can see you will get the texture change colors for the top in both “lace” and “plain” as well as some metallic colors. You’ll also be able to change the colors of the ties on the shirt. The possibilities are almost endless! This is a very generous free gift! Be sure to get this one before it disappears!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/14/2017 – Nala Designs

Nala Designs
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you but I am so glad the weekend is here. It’s been along week and I am ready to relax a little bit. I also am in need of some freebie retail therapy. Thankfully I have the pleasure of sharing with you Nala Designs for this weeks edition Fab Free Designer Friday. There are many opportunities at Nala Designs for FREE and inexpensive items. The above photo is of the Nala Designs front desk. Here is where you can join the Nala Designs group and you’ll want to check out the little pink gift box. It’s a 5 linden gift. Most of the Nala Designs items are mesh trendy casual women’s clothing items in great colors and patterns. Additionally there are a few formal gowns and dresses, and I even spotted a men’s formal suit. There’s also a lingerie department on the second floor.
Nala Downstairs
The Nala Designs group is just 50 linden to join. Directly to the right of the desk you’ll see the wall of information. Check out that information space for info on hunts, events, and other group affiliations. To the left of the front desk you’ll see two discount vendors next to a pretty mirror. You can score two 50L items there. Also, the mirror will let you teleport to a discount area. As you travel through the store toward the back of the first floor, you’ll find the FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift. This is for Fabulously Free in SL group members only, so don’t forget your Fab Free tag! If you’re not already a member of the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join.  At the very back of the store you’ll also see a Midnight Mania board, and a Night Prize Board. I was able to join the Night Prize board without a group tag. Also while you’re exploring the first floor, keep your eye out for a round side table with a little blue gift package. There you’ll find a 10 linden swimsuit, it’s on the right side of the main floor. As if these great gifts and discounts were not awesome enough, there’s more to be found upstairs.
Nala Upstairs
Once you’re upstairs, you’ll find two additional group gifts for other groups among the regular store vendors. The upstairs is also where the Nala Designs group only Lucky Letter boards can be found. You will need to be sure to wear the Nala Designs group tag to participate in the Lucky Boards. Needless to say there are plenty of Fabulous reasons for you to visit Nala Designs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

On Down the Line

Ocho Tango

All my bags are packed and reedy to go…

… in my dreams. I’d love to be able to take a trip, but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. At least in Second Life, I can go to whatever destination a care to choose with a simple click of the mouse. Today I’m taking a train ride to wherever the tracks lead me. I had a layover at the Ocho Tango Club and found by joining the group I could get this Men’s Mesh Dress Outfit for FREE. The outfit includes a shirt and pants in classic XS-XL sizes, a hat and shoes. There are several FREE gifts on the table for members, both male and female. Be sure to check them all out.

My train is boarding, I need to scoot on down the rails. Later!

Prince and the Pea

Price and the Pea

Waited on Hand and Foot….

You’d think that would be great, someone talking care of your every need. Adjusting the pillows, pulling down the covers because you are hot, pulling them up because you are cold, having all your meals served to you in bed…  It is pretty awesome…. for a while, then it gets old and you want to do things for yourself. I’m happy to say that all my help has vanished and I’m glad to be doing things on my own.

Laid Up in Style…

You can still be stylish while convalescing.  I stopped by House of Ruby and found the Ruby Boxers for just 1L as part of the Masters of Style Hunt. These applier boxers come in both Slink and Omega appliers. The netted look to the boxers are great for lounging, recovering or sharing some naughty time with that someone special. The Masters of Style Hunt runs from June 17th through July 31st.

Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂
