Don’t let the days go by

Don't let the days go by

I can’t even think of any car terms off the top of my head to throw out and pretend I’m doing something to this shiny red car in front of me. Lame. But let’s skip all that and cut to the chase. No reason to be coy, right? My butt looks fantastic in these shorts. And even better? Yours will too!

Just 1L!

I grabbed this outfit by N-Uno on the marketplace for 1L! I realize I’m not showing most of it, but here’s the marketplace link so you can see the vendor ad for yourself. The shirt and shorts are separate pieces and they each come in 5 sizes, L-XXS. The outfit comes in the color I’m showing as well as a bunch of others. All for 1 silly little L!

Fifty Linden Friday!

I love a good pair of boots. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from paper arrow for Fifty Linden Friday. There was this pair and another darker shade for 50L each. Do I even need to say that I bought both? Yeah, ’cause I bought both… Each pair comes sized for Maitreya and Slink.

There are lots of other great things available for FLF as well. And don’t forget that the Saturday sale is tomorrow!

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

It’s proving to be a busy weekend between Memorial Day stuff and all of the graduation parties, but I wanted to sneak in a quick post here in honor of what I believe to be the unsung hero of any outfit – appliers. We go on about hair and clothes, but what’s there behind it all, holding everything together? Appliers. You could even say that I have “mad love” for appliers. See what I did there? The blog title total fits now and couldn’t possibly just be a song that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

New Ink

I love a good tattoo and this one is soooooo pretty. And FREE, which obviously makes it even better! It’s a new group gift from Lush. You know the routine…join Lush’s free group and go to their store to pick up the prettiness. Easy peasy.

Makeup Too

Sintiklia has a box of free stuff in their store too. Well actually it’s 1L but same difference, right? This one doesn’t even require a group join, just buy the gift wrapped box that’s sitting on the front desk. You’ll get this eyeshadow and lipstick, as well as a smattering of other good stuff like hair and eyes.

My Jam

If you had to choose…

What would be your favourite song of all time? I don’t mean the song in the top 40 that is your current favourite (although it could be..), or a special song you have with a loved one, I mean… that awesome song that you blast when it comes on the radio and you know every last word to.  That song that makes everything else around you disappear for a couple of minutes and just fills your heart with “happy”.

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world

That song for me is “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, and when it came on the radio on the way to work the other day it inspired the idea that I needed to find some great headphones in Second Life.  It didn’t take long to find these cool frosting headphones in the Bantam Marketplace Store for just 1L in three different colours!

Headphones Colour Options:

  • Pink/Blue
  • Cream/Green
  • Red/Yellow

You can find my Cozy Sweater Set that includes the holiday sweater and matching panties as a free Paying It Forward group gift (free to join) at the Maddict display at The Paying It Forward Event.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

As previously mentioned on FabFree by both Aline and myself [HERE], [HERE], [HERE] and [HERE]…  There are free group gifts in almost every stall!

Lovely knitwear

Lovely knitwear

Taking cues from your peers.

Upon reading Carson latest blog post {HERE} I was inspired to head down to Prism Designs to check and see if there was a group gift out for the ladies as well. I’ve been a longtime member of the Prism Designs group thanks to being introduced to this particular merchant via the FabFree blog, specifically Julianna’s posts, and have kept the group tag since those early SL days due to Prism’s top notch products, great deals, and frequent gifts. With that being said, it didn’t take very much poking around at all to locate the new group gift at Prism Designs and when I saw what it was, it made me rethink the theme of that ‘blog segment’ that I had planned on doing.

It’s all about keeping warm and toasty.

What I had originally had in mind centered around ball gowns and party wear but with the chill, upon us, I thought I’d highlight the often understated knitwear. At face value, it’s probably not as exciting as demon dresses or warrior armor but hey, this is SL and I’m sure I’ll find some interesting designs to wear. Hence I bring to you today the Paige dress, the new and free group gift from Prism Designs mentioned above. If you have to brave the cold then why not opt for something that will not only make you feel snug and cozy but looks it as well. Personally, I feel that the Paige dress strikes a good balance between being form flattering and comfortable to wear. It’s tan belt really accentuates the waistline but is a simple enough accessory that it doesn’t overwhelm the dress’ loose high neck. If you’re looking to be a stand out while walking the snowy streets this season then the Paige dress will certainly work in your favor when it’s warm magenta coloring contrasts with the icy backdrop. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with a nifty alpha layer included. As it is almost to the end of November, I’m not sure how long this gift will be out so hurry on down to Prism Designs today to join their free group and get your hands on this awesome dress. While you’re there do check out the gifts and hunts room to pick up the other group gifts that are out and to also check out the different hunts that Prism Designs are currently participating in. Have fun!

Don’t you just love an extension?

I certainly do, especially when it comes to real life deadlines (lol) Sometimes extension mean good things in SL and the prime example of that is the sale at Truth being extended until 12-noon slt today! The sale was mentioned {HERE} by Love and {HERE} by Kathryn, but to give you a refresher 48 selected hair styles a the Truth Mainstore have been marked down to 75L per color pack (100 L per variety pack and 500 L per fatpack) The hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is called Foxy and comes with hat/no hat variations as well as hair of different sizing so that it doesn’t cut into your front. There are two alpha layers provided with one that covers up the avatars ears in case you don’t want those sticking out. What’s more both the hair and hat comes with extensive huds giving you the ability to customize to your heart’s content. If you’ve missed out on the Truth Hair sale so far don’t delay as there are other great quality hairstyles to be had.

How about a pretty pair of heels?

There’s really nothing that gives an outfit an extra punch like statement shoes do. I’m a big fan of bright shoes in my first life, which would probably explain why I saw drawn to this pink pair from Kendrasy Creations. These heels are only for Slink High feet and I just love its sweet hue and minimalist design. The bright color though really speaks for itself and I’ll be wearing this pair for a while. Pop down to Kendrasy Creations for this dollarbie. You don’t have to wear any specific group tag to get in on this great bargain.

Hitting two birds with one stone.

Not that I’m about to be throwing stones at any innocent birds but do you remember the post I made {HERE} detailing the gorgeously metallic pair of shoes that are currently out as Enertia’s group gift? Well, joining the Toxxic Design Studios group also gives you access to group gifts from the AlterEgo skin store as well! The skin that I’m wearing in the picture above is called Natalia in the sunkissed tone. As a fan of subtle makeup and full eyebrows, I fell in love with this skin instantly. In the package, you’ll get three different classic skin with dark brows, light brows, and no brow options as well as a varied number of appliers. Those are:

  • Appliers for Loudmouth
  • Appliers for mesh heads that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Soul Uni Standard and Mer
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP mesh bodies
  • Appliers for Mesh bodies that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, and Maireya mesh feet

The final four appliers are in one easy to use Hud so it doesn’t take up inventory space. The Toxxic Designs Studio group is currently set a 0L join fee and as both AlterEgo and Enertia give you group gifts regularly, I suggest you go and snap the current ones asap. You’ve got nothing to loose by joining this free and only a gorgeous, well-detailed skin to gain.

And that’s a wrap for today! Have fun in your SL explorations dear readers. Stay safe!

Spending as much time as I do on beach sims, it’s easy to get lost in an endless Summer dream. I’ve only just recently traded in my sundresses and flip flops for some warmer options in the hopes of getting with the weather and have been pretty pleased with some of the finds. The tunic pictured is a dollarbie from Atis and comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L). Included is a Hud that controls the colors on the chevrons and the option to put stripes on the tunic itself. For the picture, I choose a cool blue though there are five other colors to choose from and I simply love the metallic sheen to them.

Also pictured is the Elias leather pants from Caboodle. You can get these amazingly well-made pants for free by hanging around the lucky letter boards at the store. The group is free to join so wear your tag proudly, keep your fingers crossed and hope that luck is on your side. The pants come in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and comes with an alpha layer and a shoe base as well so if you don’t feel like wearing shoes but don’t want to go totally barefoot either this is most certainly another viable (and stylish) option.

Aside from beach sims, I love rummaging through interesting looking stores. Ever shopped inside an elephant? If no, then maybe you’d like to check out Schadenfreude. I adopted my cuddly three headed pal for 50L and there are other cute gachas that you can play at the store. Now…to see if I can arrange some play dates with Love and Kathryn’s pups. If you’re looking to play more gacha, you can get this cute Clio fitted mesh hairstyle from Oleander for 75 L per pull. Gachas are so addictive!

Finally, the skin I’m wearing is Deluxe Body Factory’s October group gift called Johanna. She comes in a pretty chai tone with both classic skin and Omega body and face appliers included in the pack along with a brow shaper and an alpha layer to hide your system lashes. I love the detailing of the eyebrows and all of the beauty marks on the skin. Deluxe Body Factory has a 299L join fee and there are two other group gifts to pick up this month as well as midnight mania and lucky letter boards open only to members. A great deal all in all.

Scrabble

Scrabble

This 1L hunt gift from The Man Cave was just what I needed to spell “classic look” and I took that to heart for a break and a game of Scrabble. You’ll find this gift as part of the Fall of Man Back to School Hunt. When you land, give the area a bit of time to rezz (you’ll find yourself at a landing point) and head to The Man Cave store to look for the Book that is the 1L Prize.

Inside the box you’ll find two different packages, though each contains the Jayke outfit (both this classically styled shirt with the matching pants). The shirt comes in a tucked-in or un-tucked version and the pants fit nicely with boots or dress flats. One box will contain a mesh outfit with alphas for a standard system avatar, the other will contain the same mesh outfit to fit a variety of mesh bodies, including: Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, and TMP.

Flower Child

Flower Child

Like groovy!

The Flower Power Fair has freebies and dollarbies.

  The overall theme is hippie, boho, 70s but you will find non retro items there too. Not all booths have gifts so look for the blue & floral present boxes. The gifts ranged from FREE to 1L. I am opting to show you some of the truly hippie flower child gifts I picked up. My wild cute funky glasses are 1L and from 187. My happy bright pink flower headpiece is FREE from Swallow. It even includes a version you can size since hair can be so fussy sometimes lol. I lucked out and didnt need to play with resizing. My little flower ring is 1L from IT! and includes a color hud with resizer. I did have to play a bit with sizing it down to fit my slink fingers but I was able to get a good fit. Ok I am gonna harsh your mellow a little bit, the Flower Power Fair is a huge event and you are gonna have to walk around. Its a landing point dealio so I can’t give direct tps to the booths. That being said it was worth spending the time wandering thru the event to find all gifts. The event runs til Feb 26th so you have time to do your walking around.

As soon as I tried on the goodies I collected I knew I needed to head over to Marketplace for the perfect tie dye shirt to pair them with. I kept coming back to this mesh tie dye shirt so I went for it man. I am totally stoked I did. It has a really fab vivid tye dye print which is just what I wanted. Plus its not just a basic tank its got a cool criss cross strappy open back. The tie dye shirt set me back 65L but I am not regretting it this outfit is totally retro and fun.

Peace, love and happiness til next time.

Grab Your Laundry From The Line

Snapshot_006
Howdy Fabulouses! Just outside the !gO!  mainstore you will find a clothes line hung full with freebies and dollarbies for mix and matching, including the Country Girl Dress I am wearing today that I picked up for 1L. Most of the items have the !gO! logo on them somewhere, but it doesn’t seem to take away from the overall look of them in my opinion.  Some have smaller logos than others, and some have none at all ;).

Now go grab your laundry from the line!
