A Moment of Zen

727_001

 

Good Monday everyone!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and are refreshed and ready for a brand new week. I’m starting off the week by staying in my new favorite pajamas all day long!  These soft, silky mesh pants are a bit of an older group gift from Red Sand, but still available (along with a slew of other great gifts for men and women).  The package contains the pants in 5 sizes and two colors, along with matching tops.

I could not help but pair the pants with this cute scooped tee from Foxy.   You can find it on the discount wall, packaged with a pair of adorable shorts for only $10.  I love the dark shading and the fact it comes will appliers!

Last week I showed off some group gifts from Dead Apples, this week I made the trip again and picked up this soft, sweet makeup kit for only $10 L.  It is called Cinema Makeup, and gives your eyelids a tint and your cheeks a glow.

When I need a moment of zen, Black Kite is my favorite sim to hide and just relax.  (Well, and there are gachas!) It is beautiful sim, and provided the backdrops for these pictures.

Totally Wigging Out At The Hair Fair!

72113trendy 3_001

The Hair Fair. Guys, unless you live in a cave (if you do, I am coming over to watch ESPN and drink beer) you know it’s a big deal on Second Life. All month there has been a traffic jam as avies crowded, pixel against pixel, to see what the best hair creators on Second Life had to show off, and what freebies they set out to lure us in. Well, now things have gotten a bit less crowded and the level of lag is much more comfortable, so it’s a great time for us guys to go have a look. Most of the free items available at Hair Fair are for female avies, but there are some male and unisex hairs offered plus a hat or two for you to discover. Finding quality male hair as a freebie is quite a challenge, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity like this if I were you.

My favorite men’s item I found at The Hair Fair this year is offered as a FREE gift from Exile @ Hair Fair. Part of the Jack And Jill Hair Fair Gift, Jack is a stylish modern cut with the top of the head covered by a mesh piece, and the sides and back covered by a hairbase. A unique aspect of this hairbase is that it is offered in 3 hues, and you may manually tint all three of them to get just the match you are looking for. On my avy, I resized the top mesh portion a bit smaller until I got the look I wanted. This is a fatpack and has tons of colors offered in a hud based system. Exile @ Hair Fair gives you everything you need to get it looking perfect for your avi. That’s extraordinary for a FREE men’s hair.

I, much like many guys on Second Life, wear black often. By often, I mean all the time and in every shade imaginable! That’s why I grinned ear to ear when I saw this denim shirt and jacket set from Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy! Yes, that is a bit of fuchsia, Fabbies, but no worries. It won’t bite. The Ewan SE- Fuchsia Black Jacket & T-Shirt is a brilliant bit of color while catering to our very masculine addiction to black. Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy offers this one-piece garment in five sizes for easy fitting. It is a 10L hunt prize on The Summer Hunt 2015. You are looking for a very small brightly colored star. This is a darned fine looking hunt prize, I hope you enjoy it.

Another fantastic FREE gift at The Hair Fair is this long hair offering from Asset @ Hair Fair! The Miracle Hair comes in a fatpack of colors and uses a hud system to change them. Also worth noting: it comes with a set of six head alphas to help make your head invisible under the hair. It is an interesting way to handle that, and I think I will probably be able to use the alphas on other outfits as well. So, it’s a great bonus feature! The hair itself is mesh and has a true rock and roll look! So much so, that once I had it on, I had to run out and buy a guitar! The fit on my head shape took a bit of fiddling to perfect, and I like to wear a hairbase as well, so I added one under it for a finishing touch. If you like long hair this is a must pick up!

I could have worn black leather, but I knew you would be expecting it now that I am a rock star. I decided to switch it up with a very nice FREE Group gift jacket from SZD Fashion. The Leather Jacket in Light Brown caught my eye not simply for the brown tones in it, but rather for the distinct olive tones. The overall texture appears dark but look closer. You will see the nicely balanced tones are very pleasing and give you a wide range of color options when matching it with your other clothes. Another surprising feature of this jacket is that you get it in two sizes of Fitmesh! I don’t have much Fitmesh yet, but this jacket fit me perfectly when I slipped it on. Kudos to SZD Fashion for making a great fit easy!

It has been quite a fun day, from the hustle and bustle of a very successful Hair Fair event, to getting so excited over a FREE hair that I bought a guitar and nearly went on tour! Oh! Time to start saving for a tour bus! Have fun everyone and since I rarely tell you this, then I should say it again: Thank you for letting me do what I love at a level I always aspired to. Take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

topsyTurvy_001

ANY way…  let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started my casual Friday with these cute shorts from WallFlower. The ‘Daisy Denim’ shorts are part of the Beached Bunny Hunt and are a great 1L prize. Nice and versital. They come in system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Omega. It’s always good to see well done system layer items! On top, I have a cute lace side tie top from ‘New to me’ designer: Lowkey Shawty. The Knotted top is a dollarbie on Lowkey’s Marketplace page but there are many cute things in the main store too.

 

topsyTurvy_003

Each of the prizes is between 10 and 15L which sounds like a lot till you see the prizes. There are kiosks set up on the corners of the Sim displaying all the prizes from the shops so you can pick which prizes you want to hunt for. And trust me… you will want a bunch of them!

The 1L Beached Bunny Hunt runs until July 31st and the Summer Hunt runs until July 26th so Happy Hunting and have a great weekend!

Silver Fey

Hello again FabFree folks! It’s official… I am totally addicted to Gachas. Sad, but true. SO when I saw a ‘new to me’ gacha event I grabbed my Lindens and hurried over.

gacha_001

The “Oh My Gacha” event is full of all kinds of tempting machines to play but I fell in love with these Dragonfly wings from Sn@tch and knew I needed to build a fairy outfit around them. The wings are just 35L per play so I stocked up.  Then I found the “Jocelyn” hair from Alice Project, one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. And at 75L per play I was ready to go wild with sixteen different packs to win.  Cila is finishing off my fairy day with the ‘Doris – Lace Princess’ corselets and skirts for 75L per play. These are Fitmesh so you don’t have to play only your size but be sure to pick up the Alpha set at the machine for free.

Oh My Gacha is a great event with a ton of machines to play. Decore, pets and quite a few unisex and men’s items can all be found there. But hurry… it only runs till July 31st!  Your taxi to – OMG- Oh My Gacha

Lets Play Hooky!

new713-1

Man, another Monday?  Lets all play hooky and hit the beach!  There is no better reason than this sweet, windswept hair from the geniuses at Truth.  The Essena Hair is free in the subscriber, and you get the complete fatpack.  I love the soft curls and finger combed look.

On the way to the beach, I swung into Kendrasy Creations to pick up this adorable mesh Aztec top.  It is free in store, and includes 5 mesh sizes.  The texturing is top notch,  and the mesh moves perfectly with your body.

Also on Moira is the subscriber gift from Amala.  They are giving out a beautiful 4 necklace set just for joining the subscriber list.  And the best part about subscribers? It doesn’t take up a group slot, and you get to keep up with great creators!

new713-2

What is a day at the beach without a great campsite to plop down at, have a few drinks and as many nachos that will fit in your tummy?  I found this awesome wearable beach set from The Black Forest on MarketPlace for only 10L.  No need to rez, just attach, and you can plop down anywhere and have yourself a siesta.   Nothing makes the work week fly by like so many margaritas!  It is available in a few different styles, so make sure to shop the store.

Here is to a wonderful week!

Love,

Moi

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.

Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

black walls

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Snapshot_004

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!

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!
