Working on my tan

SnapshotSlathered in sunscreen off I went to the beach to work on my tan with the help of 7 Deadly S{k}ins latest FREE GG. The group is 50L to join but so worth it. Every month you are given a generous GG that always includes at the very least slink appliers and many times a whole ton of other appliers. This month doesn’t disappoint you get 4 skin colors with and without cleavage, slink appliers and lola appliers. I am showing you the 3 tanned skin colors today but there is also a lovely paler tone included. In this 1st pic I have on the chestnut skin tone and the new FREE MoDANNA GG. A good basic mesh pair of ripped jean shorts. I found they run a bit small so don’t be afraid to go up a size for a good fit.SnapshotThis is the Pineapple skin tone.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The CollectionGood morning Fabulous Friends! There are lots of fun hunts to tell you about, including two which just started today… The Collection (a Madpea event) and The Nishi Mall Crawl (a sim hunt with lots of prizes).

There are many more hunts to choose from of course, and the themes abound. Rock music, bowling, marriage, fashion, and birds, are just some of them. I’m sure you can find a theme that’s “the one” for you. Have a powwow with your friends and decide which one to go on!

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.

Posing, and dressed for fun, on date night

Yayyy, it’s Thursday again, and lucky me,  I have a date tonight :) It’s going to be a fairly casual date, so I thought I would put together a nice, date-worthy, yet fun, casual look. With so many great group gifts out, it wasn’t hard. Let me show you.
*****

*****
First off, I will start with my cute top and capri’s. My shirt is from Tamiron Forge, and my capri’s are from blah.BLAH.blah, and they are both current, free group gifts in The Stuff Lounge for the Womenstuff group. The Summer Blouse is mesh and comes with 2 versions, 1 with trim, which I am modelling, and 1 without. They are mesh, and come in the standard sizes, and I think it has the perfect amount of ‘flirty’ for a date ;) . My Marjorie Cropped Jeans are also mesh, and in the standard sizes, but they come with a 5 texture hud! All of the choices are solid colours, so you are sure to have no trouble matching whatever top you want to wear, as I so nicely did for the Summer Blouse. To get these gifts, as well as a bunch of others, which change out all the time, you just need to join the Womenstuff group, for a mere L$50 join fee, once you land at The Stuff Lounge. The group join is right in the middle of the women’s gifts.

Next to show off, my pretty skin and the lovely tattoo on my chest. These 2 are free group gifts from the Gimme Gacha group, that were put out in advance,  in preparation for the now open Garden Gacha Event. My skin is from Essences, is called Teal, and comes in  the pale02 skintone, with black brows. You get 2 versions, 1 with cleavage, and 1 without. It does not come with appliers, but you can buy the appliers in the Essences main store, or do like me, and colour match your hands and feet. I’m not sure how easy colour matching the mesh bodies are, as I don’t have one :P . The sweet FeeBee tattoo I am sporting, is from SEB INK, and comes in a system tattoo layer, as well as appliers for Maitreya, SLink and Omega, so almost everyone will be able to wear it. As I mentioned, these were put out before the start of Garden Gacha, along with a few other gifts, however, to get them, you need to head over to Bella Gacha where you can join the Gimme Gacha group for free. From there, you can find a board with a TP over to the actual Garden Gacha event, which has so many great gachas to play, from many wonderful creators. Love already gave you a little taste of this event HERE. I’m not sure how long these gifts will be available, as they were put out a few weeks ago, but I am guessing they will be there till the end of Garden Gacha, which is Aug 22. I would not suggest waiting though, they could dissapear before that!

One last thing I wanted to show you is a group gift from oOo Studio. The fabulous box I took my pictures in, is available for free, for group members at the oOo Studio store. The Surface box has only 5 LI, and  comes with 13 poses total, which are also included separate to use wherever you want, without the box. I have a few of the poses pictured in my collage, but these are just a taste. I love the fact that you can adjust the positioning of each pose in the box, as I tend to be shorter than a lot of AV’s in SL, and most poses are not meant for shorter avs. To get this gift, you just need to join their group for L$100 and grab it up for yourself. There are several more gifts available, including pose packs for both men and women, so that fee is money well spent!

So what do you think..is this a date worthy look? I think I will receive a few compliments, and that always makes me feel good :) . OK lovelies, I must be off for now. You know I will be back again this same time next week though, with more goodies to show off. So, until then, TTFN *waves*

Besom body, be Anybody

AMD1

Hello Fab Free’rs, we made it through Monday! I think that deserves a little celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a little shopping trip?! The pretty sleeveless top Pru has on is the current 25 linden special at Apple May Designs. I love this pretty dark pink color. The top is fully mesh and includes this pinstriped version and a plain version. In the package you’ll get the standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza fit for both Isis and Freya bodies. The top will be available for just 25 lindens until August 7th, so don’t forget to stop by Apple May Designs!

AMD2

In addition to the cute top from AMD, I also picked up this gorgeous hairstyle from Besom. The Besom group is currently FREE to join, and this hairstyle “Genesis” is a current FREE gift. This gift comes in a complete fat pack with all the available color huds. I love the heavy bangs and thick lush waves.

So, if you’ve been wondering about the skin Pru has on, you’re in luck! This is the Lazy Sunday skin by Lumae from last Sunday. I know it’s not Sunday anymore, but Lumae is leaving the skin at the ultra low price of 75 lindens per tone until August 15th! What makes this an even better deal is the fact that it’s a full skin with all the available appliers and add-ons.

Next, if you haven’t been to The Aloha Fair yet, you need to go! I’m honestly not sure how long it is running. This beautiful medallion Pru is wearing is the dollarbie gift from Tantalum at The Aloha Fair. I think it’s a great statement piece, and the fact that it’s named “Atreyu” makes me think that the creator may have been inspired by the movie “The Never-ending Story” and that makes my dork side seriously happy.

Last but not least, I have a little preview of good things to come from Entice. These matte leather pumps will be available at Entice for just 49 lindens starting tomorrow (August 5th) as part of their Secret Wednesday Yard Sale Week. Everyone who wears Slink or Maitreya fit heels should have a pair like this in their wardrobe. They go with everything!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl’s Best Friends

We probably all remember the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” I remember thinking: “But diamonds are hard and why do boys get dogs?!” Because dogs were man’s best friend — what was up with that? Life was so unfair! Well MINA @ the Hair Fair, Belle Epoque and Empyrean Forge are here to save the day with outstanding fashion (as usual!) to make up for all the insanity!

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [2]

I had spent a hard day’s work braving Hair Fair, where I picked up this amazing FREE gift from MINA @ the Hair Fair called Selenia. This gift is only available in Grey tones (which was fine by me as it fits my roleplay character (a glass fae) just perfectly! But it would also be terrific for mature looks or even in the very lightest shade to pass for a platinum blonde.

The great thing is that this is one of those second chance gifts! You first saw this hair HERE where it was blogged as an amazing find by Love Trill at The Arcade Gacha! So if you missed it then, now it’s available for a second go ’round!

My next stop was a quick jump to Belle Epoque for their amazing FREE group gift which is perfect for any roleplayer’s wardrobe and can be worn as is — or over the top of system clothes or applier clothes for more modesty if desired. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE as well. It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes, and includes three great colors (I’m only showing you the green but there is also a beautiful blue and a fabulous brown shade inside the package as well!).

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [1]

I had decided that the evening now called for a little relaxation, which meant I headed home to sit by the fire and did the rest of my shopping via the marketplace where I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite designers — Empyrean Forge — is spoiling us all with a special promo! A 1L giftie of their Contessa ring in either a lustrous white or sexy black pearl option (depending upon which way you go)!

This is great because you can give it as a gift to a friend as well if you like. I finished my look off with a lovely manicure set by alaskametro in a french silver finish for slink hands. The applier kit is on the Marketplace and has a great palette choice of 25 colors for only 25L. That’s a hard deal to beat for such a great color set!

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl's Best Friends [3]

In case you were wondering, yes I did splurge. With all the mullah I saved on my other goodies for this get-up, I did buy the jewelry that matches the Contessa ring! Empyrean forge is offering a lovely matching necklace and matching bracelet and with a color change hud, each with two metal choices, and 12 gemstone finishes. I just couldn’t resist!

50s TV sitcom moment!

50s TVs sitcom momentsWhile I normally shy away from house work in SL this Time for Tea hunt prize has inspired a retro 50s TV sitcom moment for me. This is the American Bazaar prize [AB] Babydoll dress. The hint for this cute mesh dress is “Have you ever tried to go to tea in a denim Bustier?  ” You are looking for a green leaf and the cost is 1L. I am totally feeling like June Cleaver vacuuming in my pearls.

50s TV sitcom moments Continuing my retro Saturday I have slipped into this FREE FA Creations GG Paige outfit you get the lace top, bolero jacket and jacquard print pants. All the pieces can be worn as separates. This look just begged for a simple little pair of flats which I was able to pick up for 10L at Mute. I couldn’t pass up a pull on the gatcha machine over at Izzie’s to get one of these retro camera necklace to complete my look. Its after 5 someplace so I think its ok to have a drink winks.
50s TV sitcom moments
My skin is the FREE July GG at 7Deadly Sk{i}ns and includes slink, Tango and Phatazz appliers. There is a 50L group join fee but its well worth it for this skin since it comes with blonde, brunette, red and black eyebrows which is rare in a FREE skin gift. The group tag also allows you to acess to the camping chairs, monthly group skins, contests and store discounts. My nails while not very easy to see are a french tip with a cat face pattern on them. Well worth the trip over to La Boheme to do the Cat hunt. This prize costs 1L. They are clues for this and all their hunts are in a treasure chest on the counter in the shop.
