Toucan? You Can!

Toucan? You Can!

I love visiting exotic locales… and this dress by LaVian & Co. [SamJones] with its toucan on the hem inspired me to seek out something a little more unusual. What I ended up discovering was a tiki treehouse tea house… forest and waterfall included. It’s a pretty fantastic set up and area. You may want to check it out some day if you have some wandering hours free in Second Life.

My dress is a really amazing 10L find on the LaVian & Co. Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. You’ll get all the standard Sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and fits for the Maitreya, Belleza, Hourglass, and Slink bodies. It includes a color change hud for 27 different colors… that is a LOT of dress for your 10 little Linden!

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift at Hairology. You’ve stopped by there and gotten the free cake, right?:) This hair is “Mabel” by EMOtions. I love the sort of Flapper style to this look and think it is really cute. The gift box includes a fatpack of 20 colors, so you’re bound to find one you like!

Bluebell

Happy Monday, FabFree!

Bluebell

I guess I could have called this post Blue Monday or Monday blues… but in a good way! My “blues” are curtesy of the Nerdy Girl Cart at the Bi Annual Wash cart Sale today. My gorgeous blue dress is the “Beach Dress” in Blue Ocean. This cute dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The Beach Dress comes in three ‘wave’ colors, a cloud white, denim and a super cute nautical print. All for just 10L each!  Even my cute “Flower Sandals” are from the Nerdy Girl Cart. The sandals come in five colors ( each sold separately) and with a rigged version for SLink flat feet and an unrigged version as well.

I’ve even got a great new blue hairstyle today from Analog Dog. This is ‘Kanpai’ and not only does it come in blue… it comes in pink and auburn and blonde and… well, every color Analog Dog makes! Analog Dog has set out the full free fatpack of Kanpai as part of the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebration at Hairology.  There’s a ton of gorgeous free hairstyles to be had at Hairology this round as well as deep discounts on some of the best styles for the best designers! Just look for the layer cake at many of the booths and have a slice.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash runs until July 6th while Hairology runs until June 30th so don’t delay.

Sn@tch it, Right From the Source

Hide&Seek Hello Fab Free’rs I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good, and really that’s all anyone can ask for. Today I want to share with you these cute applier clothes I picked up at Sn@tch recently. Also, Swallow has a new group gift, and I found some had-to-have shoes at Momento. I really like the complete look, I hope you do too!
Snatch Swallow Momento So recently it came out that Sn@tch had been copy-botted. Even though that happens more often than I think even I realize, I’m still always a bit surprised and disheartened when I learn that someone has come along and taken advantage of another person’s hard work. I’m not sure which items specifically were copied, but the designer at Sn@tch has taken the occurrence and turned it into a positive! The silver lining in all of this is that rather than buy the stolen items, you can get the originals for FREE at the Sn@tch main store. The items have been placed up on the “freebie” wall near the gachas for FREE, no group needed. There are several really cute items to be had, most with Omega appliers and classic system layers.  I picked up this pretty little halter top and these cuffed jeans. Both the top and the jeans come with classic system layers, and an omega applier. Additionally they both have a color change hud with the bold color options Sn@tch is known for. The jeans include some add-on cuffs that I really like, they give some dimension.

To go along with my cute punky-pinup style outfit from Sn@tch, I picked up these wild sunglasses from Swallow. These glasses are so detailed and fun, a definite statement piece! They are one of the most recent group gifts available at Swallow. The Swallow group does have a one-time join fee of 30 lindens. Once you have your group tag you’ll be able to pick up these FREE sunglasses along with several other previous group gifts.

Finally, the “had-to-have” shoes I mentioned from Momento. These star platforms are wickedly cute! I saw them in a flicr photo and instantly wanted them. I was expecting to pay quite a bit for them, however I was pleasantly surprised to find them in a gacha machine at Momento. These shoes are just 70 lindens per play at Momento. Included with them are a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit pair of shoes. I’m seriously tempted to collect them in every color!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – little bones. Pogo – Past Hair Fair Gift

Skin – Essences – Digby

Head – CATWA HEAD Amy  *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Daydreaming

Day Dreaming

In real life it’s sweltering where I live today. Thankfully in second life it’s much cooler… and I can daydream a little. I got a notice from Pure Poison that they had a new Gacha Group gift out and was really excited. I always love the FREE spin on the group gacha… part of the fun is the surprise of what you will get. The group is FREE to join, so the pair of shoes won’t cost you a single Linden, and this set of Khyrah heels is just divine. You get one FREE spin per avatar, and that will get you a pair of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. If you want additional shoes, they are only 50L per spin on the non-gift gacha machine.

I landed a beautiful yellow pair and I really love the detailing on these heels by Pure Poison. I included the vendor advertisement at the end of my post so you could see the other colors available as well as get a close-up of the heels.

I wanted to pair my new heels with a pretty dress, and found just what I was looking for at the Cart Wash Sale. I picked up this pretty maxi dress by Lilbit Sass for only 10L. It is breezy and beautiful and the fit is perfect. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza too.

Day Dreaming 2

If you haven’t stopped by Hairology yet, you still have time. It runs until June 30th. I highly recommend you pick up all the cakes there! There are so many pretty FREE gifts! [e] elikatira has out a cake and inside is two gift hairs in exclusive colors. I am showing you “Libby” in the pictures above. You don’t need a group… the hair is completely FREE. Just click the cake and it’s yours!

Loki showed you one of the 10L offerings from the Luminess Cart [here] earlier, but there are several pretty items for us ladies too. I found a pretty pastel pendant that looked lovely with my outfit and picked it up to finish off my soft summery look. It has a little cherub relaxing on the disk… looking like he is daydreaming… which is exactly the mood I was in this afternoon.:)

Summer Weekends Ahead

Happy Friday, FabFree!

Summer Weekends Ahead

Now that the weekend is here, let’s do some shopping! Let’s start with my super cute free new hair style. This is ‘Jayla’ and it’s the new Group Gift for Truth. Jayla comes with a HUD for four cotton candy color choices and a HUD to change the color of the bands in the pig tails! The Group is free to join and don’t forget while you’re there to scope out the huge discount room in back for 50L hairs too!

My super cute new hair needed a super cute new outfit, of course! And I think I found what’s going to be a wardrobe favorite at Vicarious Youth’s Cart at the Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale. This is the Bandeau + Tank – ‘Nautical Stars’ and the ‘Solid Americana’ flip flops from VY’s Cart. I love them! The bandeau and tank are one piece with it’s own alpha and comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL.  The flip flops are fit to SLink, Maitreya and Belleza feet. If that wasn’t enough, they also come in three color combinations – red soles with navy straps, navy soles with red straps and beige soles with navy straps.

I paired up my Cart finds with a marketplace goody, this is ‘Denim Mini’ in red and it’s from Love25. The skirt is very nicely made and again… I think it’ll become a favorite of mine. The skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-XL and has a good alpha layer.  I couldn’t find a store for Love25 in world so if any of y’all know of it, drop me a note. I’d love to see more of this designer’s work!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale goes on until July 6th so you’ve got some time to browse to your hearts content!

Bee Sweet

Bee Sweet Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by! I have to tell you, I’m really enjoying this round of Kustom 9, so many cool things to be had at really affordable prices. Not to mention there are tons of FREE Second Life’s 13th Birthday gifts! I love slightly smaller events like Kustom 9 as well, they are easier to navigate and you can be certain you’re not missing anything.
Bee Sweet Close The moment I saw the ad for the Aquarium Heels gacha at the Kustom 9 Astralia booth, I had to have them. It was a true, “take my money now” moment! At just 69 lindens per play, I felt I could do no wrong. I love this style of shoe, and the Rare pair are more than worth the effort in my opinion. There’s something fun and whimsical about having a mini aquarium in your heels! The Rare pair includes a color/style change hud that allows you to pick between several colors, and change between the slip on style shown and a flipflop/thong style. These shoes fit Slink High feet.

Additionally, Astralia has a Second Life’s 13th Birthday gift out at their Kustom 9 booth. This FREE gift is an adorable bumble bee themed jewelry set that includes earrings and a necklace. Included with this gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the metal between 4 options, and the gemstone in the necklace between 3 options. Each piece is also able to be re-sized by touch menu.

Another of the FREE SL13B gifts I picked up while at Kustom 9 is this cute hairstyle from Beusy. These double bun style up-do’s are so popular for the summer, and I can see why! With this FREE gift you’ll get the hairstyle and a color change hud that has 9 natural hair colors to choose from. Also, the hair is set up to be re-sized via touch menu for easy fitting.

Finally, I added this cute black and yellow striped nail polish to tie the whole look together. The polish is a dollarbie from TASHI that I found available on the Marketplace. This playful single color nail applier set includes appliers for Maitreya, Omega, TMP, and Belleza nails.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.
