Should The Evenings Grow Cooler…

 

whc kauna fall 1

We are enjoying a beautiful summer now, my favorite season of the year. In real life, I am a warm-weather creature and even in Second Life I tend to avoid cold areas – lest I lose a few pixels to virtual frostbite. However, one pleasant surprise for me lately was seeing some excellent fall wardrobe items pop up this early in the year. I have decided to take a few minutes of valuable beach time and devote them to sharing some cooler weather clothing that has recently been offered to us, the male bargain hunters of Second Life.

The FREE FaMeshed group gift this month comes from Kauna and includes the diamond orange sweater, the steel blue XIV shirt and tweed overcheck trousers (not shown here). All three items are of excellent quality and look very much like real life clothing. The sweater is beautifully shaded and textured. I bet by the time fall arrives, it will be my favorite pullover. The realistic steel blue XIV shirt looks great without the sweater as well. The tweed overcheck trousers have a beautiful dark texture on them and are definitely a keeper, but for the pic I opted for sharp black tuxedo trousers that I bought from Kauna recently. The main reason I couldn’t wait to show you this though is located in the “additional items” box inside the group gift. Kauna, in addition to a generous array of options and sizes included in this gift, added a bonus box with some extra variations as well. This means you can wear both the sweater and that beautiful blue shirt under that amazing men’s Kuana leather jacket that they gave away last month at FaMeshed! The Jacket, which I blogged here previously looks fantastic! I have been on the lookout for some great things to wear under it, and this is a perfect chance to get a sweater and a shirt that look absolutely perfect with it! In case you missed it when Tiana posted it previously here, you finally have a second chance to pick it up. Hurry though, the month is nearly over, and whether you were lucky enough to get the jacket last month or not, this is a great chance to get very high quality clothing for FREE!

IKON is offering another FREE group gift for a very limited time. If you click the above picture, and once you are in my flickr, click the picture once more, you will get a closer look at the IKON Odyssey Eyes – Clarity. They are a light gray-ish blue with distinctively shaped pupils and plenty of reflections. They are Mesh, but could be used as system eyes if you prefer. They even included a hud to make fitting and selecting options easier. I don’t expect them to be out long, so run to IKON to pick up these FREE eyes while they are still available.

whc fall Fe Style 1

The Menstuff Hunt has been great this time around. All month I have been posting fabulous clothing and items that were part of it. Now, with the hunt ending at the end of the month, this is my last chance to share some items with you that I thought worthy of special attention. Fe Style is offering this light denim jacket that is going to be perfect as the season turns to fall or for a cool summer’s night. The Tartan Denim Jacket is a mesh one-piece including the white T-Shirt, comes in 5 sizes for worry free fit, and looks lightweight and comfortable to wear. I love the range of colors in the jacket! It manages to be multihued, yet is very easy on the eyes with its mix of blues and gray. For the cost of only 1L this is definitely a good pickup, and yet another reason for people to hunt the Menstuff Hunt (even if they haven’t started yet).

The riot of color in the lower two pictures comes courtesy of Come Soon Poses. Their FREE gift for the Menstuff Hunt, *CS* Paparazzo is a beautiful fall-themed photo prop that I am thrilled to put to use already. It comes with a bench and a pose, but you can always move them out of the way and substitute whichever items you intend to use. The colors are vibrant, and when fall comes around this will be an excellent addition to your photo prop collection, or even to your own back yard.

whc fall lovecats 1

The Menstuff Hunt gift from Lovecats is the No Club Jacket, the perfect article of clothing to wrap up my coverage of the Menstuff Hunt for now. It is a one-piece mesh item, but it appears to have 4 layers of clothing (a T-Shirt, shirt, hoodie and jacket) integrated into it. It comes in five sizes for a good fit. Although it is very snug around my waist and required some emergency slider dieting, the great look of the garment more than made up for that tiny inconvenience. “Lone wolf – no club” is emblazoned on the back with a white wolf logo giving it a biker style look. Each part of the mesh looks very realistic and, since it is one piece, it is very easy to wear once you perfect its fit for your avi. Biker style, unbelievably inexpensive, and simple to wear, Fe Style did a superb job on this FREE gift. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Next up, I will be doing the Biker Hunt, which started just two days ago. I want to point out that Tellaq, an excellent store for male skins, has a Midnight Mania board at their main store. The group is required, but it is free. Although the target number seems high, when new skins and avy packages get put up on the board the target is met for several days. I should know, because that Midnight Mania is a regular stop for me on Second Life, and I get nearly every prize package they offer. Tellaq is especially good at darker skins which feature extremely highly defined muscle textures. It just so happens that the skin currently on the midnight mania board is called “Saint” and is perfect for my new biker look, as you can see here. If you are looking for a skin upgrade, haunt the MM board and you will probably come up with something that pleases you. It’s worth the effort.

Well, with my sneak peek into fall now complete, I think I am going to strip off these clothes and hit a nice, quiet beach for a little “me” time. Please, enjoy the rest of the summer with us at Fab Free and don’t worry, we will keep an eye out for amazing deals whatever the season. Until next time, get some sun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Those Hot Summer Nights

summer2

Happy Monday, and happy summer!  To celebrate the new season,  I hauled myself on over to the Flawless Hot Summer Nights cart sale/hunt to pick up some truly awesome freebies and sale items.  There are dozens of carts on the sim, each with great deals all under $100L, a free gift (hunt for the ice pop!)   I picked up a few things while I was there… okay, a lot of things! This cute cross front top from Saris Creations was one of my favorite finds.  It has a sweet, flowing feel and a great texture.  It pairs perfectly with the Pale Green Necklace from the Beloved Jewelry cart and the Life Nail Polish from Posh Pixels.

It may be summer now, but these eggstrodinarily cute shoes from the MM boards at Bitch Heels are still among my favorites to wear.  Created for SLink high feet, but they are unrigged, so they have the potential to work with other foot styles. The boards do rotate through a few different shoes, but they all are amazing and worth a slap.  The pedicure is courtesy of the same Posh Pixel hud.  It includes 8 cheerful and sometimes psychedelic polishes for Slink hands and feet.  Each polish set is so bright and cheerful.

Here’s to a wonderful Monday, and an even better summer!

X-Treme Finds Fit For A Queen

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses!  Could today be a more perfect day for the beach?  The Linden sun is shining, the prim birds are chirping – and I picked up a whole new beachy outfit, and sexy new hair for free!  It really just doesn’t get any better for a beach loving bloggerista!

The outfit that I am wearing today is by X-Treme Vogue and is a free group gift that includes the top and matching tropical pants.  The wrap tube top comes with an Omega Applier which made it lickety split easy to wear with my Maitreya Lara Body.    The X-Treme Vogue group is free to join, and there are other groups available for both men and women.

You can find the new Queen Hair that I am featuring today as a free group gift (100L to join) at Little Bones. I have been waiting and waiting for hair makers to include the hairline as part of the hairstyle so it matches just right, and this one does indeed include it.  If you already have a favourite hairbase or prefer not to wear one, you have that option too.  This free gift is an introduction to their new colour HUD pack called Duo-Tone that is half and half different shades!  The hud includes several different combos.

ps. Happy Father’s Day to all of you Fathers, and Father Figures out there – and happy first day of summer to the rest of you!

Art in the Afternoon

Art Gallery

So I took myself out and went exploring this afternoon. It was nice to spend the time and take a look around. I ended up on this beautiful sim with a beach-side art gallery for an artist named Marisa Falbo. Not only is the setting beautiful and serene, so is the art. In addition to the gorgeous atmosphere, you can pick up a sample of Marisa Falbo’s amazing artwork for FREE! There’s a big gift box as you enter the gallery that anyone can purchase for 0 linden. Her other works are for purchase also, so take the time to stop by the gallery, explore the sim, and maybe pick up some art. It’s well worth the visit.

Of course such an occasion needed a great outfit. After all, the person I want to look good for the most is myself. Lucky me, I found this great tube-top and skirt combo by N-Uno on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This “Summer Day” set is a wearable demo, it’s fully mesh, and includes matching alpha layers. I think it’s cute, feminine, and flirty. It’s the sort of outfit I want to feel confident enough to wear in real life! hahaha Not only did I feel pretty in my new outfit, it presented the perfect opportunity to show off my newest tattoo.

I love this pretty chest tattoo from La Malvada Mujer. The tattoo is a current FREE group gift at La Malvada Mujer, and the group is FREE to join. This lovely tattoo comes in regular system layers, and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, and Omega, each with a fresh and two faded options. I think the flowers at the shoulders are very pretty, and the idea of an envelope is kinda sweet and romantic.

Timeless Classics

Timeless Classics

Timeless classic, the little black dress!

MoDANNA has a new FREE GG that has answered our need for the little black dress.

Just a tiny warning I did find myself having to use the M vs my usual S in this sharp little curve hugging mesh number. The cleavage on this dress is most likely a bit much for most of you ladies so any system layer tank, top or even bra finishes this look off nicely.

I myself used Happy Undead-Tank top (pack 1) I found on mp to finish off my look. You get 11 colors on system layers (shirt, undershirt, jacket), Lolas, Slink, Maitreya and Omega appliers all for the very reason price of 25L. I saw this as a great investment as these will come in handy under lots of mesh clothes or just worn by themselves. Along with a little black dress ever girl needs a good basic tank and this fits that bill to a T.

I went with all good basics you can use over an over today, last is this stylish tote bag thats a FREE GG at ::K:: It actually comes with 3 bags plus each have a HUD. You can get a good look here with the creators pic I am including.

::K:: New Group Gift ☻

P.S One last basic is my FREE Izzie’s Stand Still Pose Hud. Striking a pose never goes out of style!

WAIT!

I almost forgot the most timeless classic of all, Dads!

Father’s Day is this Sunday.

Of course you need a dress to wear to Sunday brunch with Dad.

Run over and grab  Kaithleen’s FREE GG and it may even give Dad a chuckle.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Catnap

Ever since I saw these PB&J jammies by Nerdy Girl, I’ve been singing “Peanut Butter Jelly Time!”  Today has been one of those days when I feel like I should have just stayed in my pajamas all day. Now through Sunday June 21st, you can get these beyond adorable pajama pants and a matching Peanut Butter or Jelly (shown) top for just 10 lindens each at the Nerdy Girl Cart located at the Rally Alley Cart Sale. In addition to the PB&J shirt and bottoms, you’ll find a few others, such as Thing 1 and Thing 2 tops. The tops come with a regular system layer, an Omega applier, and a Slink applier. The bottoms are fully mesh.  Everything at this weekend cart sale is 10 lindens, and there’s even a cute little freebie for everyone who stops by the Nerdy Girl Cart.

All this talk of pj’s makes me want to take a nap, and anyone who has ever had a cat knows a cat will never let you nap alone! While trying my luck at The Arcade, I came across this adorably funny hair from Fashionably Dead. This “style” includes the sweetly napping kitty, and there is just about every hair color imaginable to be had. This mesh hairstyle, and napping cat, is just 50 lindens per play at The Arcade.

Also at The Arcade this round, these cutesy eye-masks by Olive. There are several versions of this mesh mask to be had, along with a few other items as part of their “Sweet Pea” gacha set. The Sweet Pea gacha by Olive is 75 lindens per play at The Arcade. I thought this flowery version of the sleep mask was too cute to pass up!

The Birds and the Bs

Hey there, Fab Free Folks! I have returned to the beach.. and no one can stop me! Muahahaha…*ahem*…. Anyway….

MrsB_002

I found this super cute long tank over at Mrs. B’s Designs and I thought it would be perfect for my triumphant return to the beach. There are several styles on the rack to choose from but I loved this sweet ‘delicious’ cupcake design.  In fact, Mrs. B’s has a ton of summery tanks and tees for both the guys and the girls. Including a  special June promotion set of very sassy tees for a tiny little 5L each!  While you’re at Mrs. B’s, check out the poses and the pose gacha machines. The pose I’m using here is ‘Model #13′ and it came from one of the two single model poses  5L per play gacha. 5L per play… yes, you read that right. You can afford to go gacha crazy!

Till next time, my dears….  now where did I leave that mimosa….

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat…. Or “We’re all mad here…”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

littleBat_003

Like the Cheshire Cat’s quote, no matter where you go in the Alice’s Adventures in Sexyland Fair, you’re going to find something fun, outrageous and just a little smexy.  This is the ‘Cheshire’ set  from The Little Bat.  The corset and skirt come in four iconic themes from Alice in Wonderland: The Queen, The Guard, The Hatter and The Cheshire ( which I’m wearing today) Each outfit comes with both the corset and the skirt as separates making them nicely versatile.  The Little Bat has also set out the cute “Drink Me” bottle necklace as a 1L gift. And if all that wasn’t enough, there are also two gahca machines at TLB: the “Elegant Bow” I’m showing and a matching “Elegant Chocker” both for 50L per play.

LitteBat Collage

7 Deadly Skins has also set out a nifty free gift for us. This is the “Patience” makeup on a tattoo layer. I love the soft lavender eye shadow  and the understated lip color.  Completing my look today is La Boheme’s fair gift for SLink nails: “LB Deco Fleur’ for just 1L.

The “Alice in Sexyland” Fair runs until June 26th so grab this taxi and head on over!
