Siren of the Sea

Siren of the SeaKelpies

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s the end of the week already?! I know I’m ready for the weekend. I’ve talked before about being drawn to the sea, about having a great love for the water. When I saw this kelpie jewelry set group gift at Vengeful Threads, I might have squealed with delight! Half fish half horse, these mythological creatures are a favorite of mine. What better excuse to fashion my pixel self into a benevolent siren of the sea. The Vengeful Threads group gift is FREE to all group members and the group is FREE to join at this time. The gift includes the gauged kelpie earrings and matching septum piercing.

Tresses Worthy of a Siren

Thanks to Astrid having posted about the Anniversary round of TWE12VE, I decided to check it out for myself. You can take a look at her post featuring a few gifts from the TWE12VE event here. Needless to say I am not at all disappointed in the gifts I picked up. Keeping with the number 12 theme, each vendor has a single gift set out for just 12 lindens. These long pastel locks are a TWE12VE event gift from Firelight Hair. This luscious long hair style from Firelight Hair comes in rigged and unrigged versions, as well as a fit for the bustier ladies. Additionally there is a single color hud with pastel color options.

Opalescent Claws

There is something mythological about the opalescent shimmer of the nail applier gift at TWE12VE by LIVIA. It is really beautiful in person. I can honestly say that even with my usual preference of dark polish, this is my new favorite manicure. The set from LIVIA will work for both fingernails and toenails. The all-in-one hud allows you to pick between 3 variations of this beautiful polish, or use all 3 of them at once. Like all the gifts at the TWE12VE event, this one is just 12 linden.

Appliers Included (all in 1 hud): Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Resting Witch Face

RWF1
Resting Witch Face

Hello hello Fab Free! Don’t worry, I’m not really gloomy. I just have “Resting Witch Face.” I’m sure some of you can relate to this. I’ve often been told I look upset or even angry when I am genuinely not. I just happen to look that way. So when I saw this FREE Subscriber gift tumbler from Astralia, I had to have it. Admittedly the rest of this look is inspired by the travel mug that cheekily reads “Resting Witch Face” with an arrow pointing up. To get your copy simply head over to Astralia and join their subscriber, then click the gift vendor and the cup will be sent to you.

The TRUTH

This hairstyle, much like Pru’s facial expression, is rather witchy if I do say so myself! These cropped curls are the September Group Gift for TRUTH VIP Group members. As with all the group gifts from TRUTH, this one is a fatpack. Additionally it has a stylist hud so you can change up the style of the hair. I went with this little side braid. I think I’ll be wearing it for a while. Currently the TRUTH VIP group is 350 linden to join.

Cubic Cherries

The top and the bindi Pru has on are both recent group gifts at Cubic Cherry. I think there was even another group gift sent out in the group notices today! I know there are several available at the store. Anyway, I digress, this top is really cute if you’re going for a casual goth look. It comes in a single mesh size (which I think is meant for TMP and could easily be unisex), and in 4 color variations, black & white (shown), black & red, white & black, and white & red. The top fits like a slouchy over-sized tee on my shape/body, which I’m totally okay with. The second gift is the triangular Norse bindi. I like bindis in general, but I think this one is very cool because it’s different from a lot of the ones I am used to seeing. This Cubic Cherry gift comes in black (shown), brass, gold, and silver. At this time the Cubic Cherry group is 66 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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

Avi-Glam Lucky Board Offer

Snapshot_003
Hello Fabulouses! If you happen to have a bit of free time this week, make sure you stop in at Avi-Glam and check out their offerings!  A friend of mine teleported me to the shop recently when there was a letter L on the lucky board (thanks again Grace!) and I was fortunate enough to win this beautiful dress.

A Rotation of Dresses

You’ll need to join the free Avi-Glam inworld group to partake in the lucky board offers as they are group only, so clear a space!  There are a few boards with eyes and the Prestige Dress that appears to rotate in prints to win.  I am not sure how many different ones there are, but I love this one called Stylish.  It comes in XXS-L mesh and includes a couple of alpha layers should you require them.

Be sure you also swing your cam around the corner of the boards, because that free group tag activation will also score you a wall full of free group gifts.
