Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic_001

TWE12VE is a new event this year that begins on the 12th of each month. To celebrate their first year, creators are giving gifts for just 12L each at their booths. I’m here to show you a few of the fantastic finds I picked up when I went to check out the goings on!

Do you believe?

I believe in magic! And tee shirts! I’ve become an avid fan of JellyRoll clothing since I discovered the cute brand, and JellyRoll is at TWE12VE with a few new releases as well as a 12L gift. Their gift, which you can pick up for just 12L, is a texture change tee called Magic that comes with a hud with four different textures. I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this post so you can see all the textures available. It comes in several sizes to accommodate many mesh body types as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something magical

I stopped by the Adorably Strange Wares booth and picked up their 12L gift and was thrilled with what I found when I unpacked the box. I rezzed it out and discovered that it was floor glitter! You can get a pretty good idea of the look of it in the picture above, but the picture doesn’t really do it justice. The floor glitter shimmers, glitters, and moves just like magic and a swatch of it that covers a fairly good sized area is only 3 prim to set out. The gift is copiable so you can set out as many as you need to decorate your area!

Last touches

I finished off my look with a gift from Indigenous Designs. For just 12L, I picked up their gift box and this Rose Choker was in the box. There were two in the box actually… one in gold and one in silver. I’m wearing the silver in the picture above. The details on this choker are really pretty and it makes a nice final touch to a casual outfit (or perhaps for a more formal date?). Either way, I was charmed by its look!

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Hello, yeah it’s been awhile…

Summer has come and gone (and I’m glad this particular summer is over). I’m finally back to work in the nether realm called the real world, and the first few weeks were nothing short of exhausting. But I’m now hitting my stride and feel I can come back and blog a bit more regularly. Today’s look is the latest group gift from R2A Creations. This gift consisting of a dotted polo, denim shorts and blue sneakers comes fitted for most body types and also comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL . Also included is a headband (not shown). This gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

An extra long (smoke) break…

I purchased today’s pose just before my extended break and it was a surprise for me when I found it in my inventory. I had totally forgotten about it. Smoke Break is one of several poses that can be purchased for just $25L on one of the male pose displays at Double Take. I  am excited to be coming back with poses I have never used.

Until next time, true believers…

You Are Amazing

Amazing
Oh hello again! If you’re reading this, I want you to know that I think you’re amazing, just like it says on Pru’s shirt! Seriously, I appreciate each and every one of you. Speaking of amazing, this outfit I think qualifies as amazing also. The top and cargo pants are a current FREE group gift at NyDesign. With this gift you’ll get the pants and top in several mesh sizes, and a color/texture change hud that lets you pick from 3 color choices (maroon, navy blue, dark green) and the pants can be solid or a camouflage pattern. Additionally there are options for the metal bits on the belt and pockets. In my opinion the best part of the hud however is the option to choose to have the alpha texture that creates the cutout letters in the top be toward the back or toward the front. This helps to keep it from interfering with other alpha textures you might be wearing, such as the ones in most long hairstyles. The NyDesign group is FREE to join and there are several group gifts still available, including the one in my previous post “Bronze.”

Mesh Sizes Included:  Ebody, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Moment to Reflect

A Moment to Reflect

Hello, fab readers! So much is going on in the world right now that I needed a moment to sit and reflect. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irma right now, and to those of you who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I have family in Florida, so we are anxiously waiting and watching the storm’s progress.

A new group and a new gift

My adorable shirt is the latest group gift from Fashionably Dead. The Cropped Collar Tank is sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with a fatpack of 4 different patterns for each. I’m wearing the one on the bottom right, which is actually quite a bit bluer than it appears in the HUD.

fdauggift

Fashionably Dead has a new in-world group which is currently free to join but will cost 100L after September 25th. They also have a new mainstore on the Lula sim, so be sure to update your landmarks!

Stay safe out there! ❤

I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

Face ItFace It

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. As I’m sure you’ve noticed there have been quite a few new additions to our Fab Free group gift list. One of the more recent gifts is this makeup inspired tank top from Zendra. I think the pop art style graphic is seriously cute. Fair warning however, the sides of this top are really low cut. Unless you wear something under this fun FREE top from Zendra, you might be showing a generous amount of side-boob. The top is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t joined the Fab Free in world group yet, you should! It is always FREE to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (XS -L)

I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

As far as I am concerned, sunglasses are like lipstick, and shoes. You can never have too many. These super cool shades are a FREE Nessmarket group gift at HEC, also known as Hot Elegant Clothing. You might recall my previous blog posts with other sunglasses gifts from HEC here, and here. These particular sunnies are able to be custom colored via a very detailed color hud. You can change each individual part of the glasses, and you can adjust things like opacity, glow, and brightness. If the glasses Pru has on seem a little big, there’s a smaller version included in the gift. The Nessmarket group is FREE to join. Just head over to HEC, join the Nessmarket group (group joiner near the gift) and snag your FREE gift.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Something extra

I also stopped by E. Vary as one of their make up gifts had caught my eye. I love my current Maya applier that I’d picked up as a free gift (no longer available sorry!), it’s my new favorite, but I wanted a “pick me up” for it and decided that it needed a fresh look. E. Vary has out the Ilusion Gift as their free SL Frees & Offers gift. Just don your tag and pick it up for free. It’s an omega system applier make up.

I did discover that you either have to applier the lipstick or the eye-shadow and I wasn’t able to figure out how to apply both at the same time, but for free, I still feel the gift was well worth it. I donned one of the pretty lipstick shades to add to my look. I’ve included a picture of the HUD below to show you what all you will be getting with this free gift!
