Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

Winter Maiden

25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Bathroom Set –  Mystique – Bathroom Sink Bura in Creme – (25L for 25L Tuesday) – hurry, it’s still sitting out!

Rug – Storax Tree – Simple Elegance Mesh Braided 19 Rug Mid (no copy) – (Fabfree group gift/0L/Group is Free to Join)

Mix and Match it up

Mix and match it up

Hello, FabFree! Did you know that the group gift from Ollie’s Follies is out?

I don’t know about you but I keep a very, very close eye on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift listing found {HERE}. It is updated on the regular and I don’t want to miss out on even one of the awesome and free gifts put out by our Fab Designers. You can be sure that there was much excitement when I saw the latest addition to the list from Ollie’s Follies as not only did both gifts cater to classic and mesh avatars, they could be used as separates as well.  Pretty sure I left dust bunnies in my wake as I rushed over to get my hands on these new wardrobe staples.

Before we begin, though…

Alright, before I jump in there’s one very important thing that you should do (if you haven’t already) and that is to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. All you have to do is cut and paste the following link into the local chat inworld and click the link;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  The group is free to join and there are no more steps after that. Are you all set? Let’s go!

So that picture on the right.

Since I got too excited and did up two looks for this gift, I’ll be talking about the picture on the left first before moving on to the right.  What you’ll see on the left is the Harlowe Cardi Combo, a snug and beautifully textured long cardigan that comes with the grey tube top. In RL I really do love pieces of clothing with inserts like these as they save time on styling and that fact as not changed in SL. The combination of reds, greys and subtle greens flow well together and bring to mind the coming festive months not to mention the chevron patterns all over the cardigan are deliciously eye-catching.

As I’ve mentioned above, the Harlowe Cardi Combo caters to both classic and mesh avatars. If like me you chose to go with the classic and mesh package you’ll receive the outfit in five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. In the package, you’ll also receive an alpha layer for easier fitting. On the flip side, should you chose the package only for classic avatars you will receive the outfit in five standard sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer for the fitting.

I’ve paired up the Harlowe Cardi Combo with the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE] Designs that you can get for just 25L by hunting cute little ghosties at the Spookzilla event. The skirt comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and sizes for the Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass bodies. You’ll get a spiffy alpha layer in the package as well. As a fan of denim, this skirt was a must have for me and the artful blood splatters simply sealed the deal.

The footwear pictured on the right is the free gift from Black Arts that is currently out for free at the Trick of Treat Lane event. The Halloween edition of the Gothic Lolita shoes is simply to die for and I just adore the details on of the skull and buckles. Mesh feet are not a requirement as the shoes come with a shoe base and an alpha layer. The Trick or Treat Lane event ends on the first of November.

Remember the Hocus Pocus event that I talked about in my post {HERE}? Well, I hit more of the participating stores and got lucky! The Mariska hairstyle that is pictured on the right is from KoKoLoReS and could be available for free to you with a little luck and magic on your side. This sweeping updo comes with a hud with six different color combinations and a tintable hairbase. If the magic is a little lacking on your try you can simply purchase the hairstyle for 50L.

Now to the left!

The high waisted trend is something that I follow pretty closely so I was pleased when I saw the other part of the free group gift from Ollie’s Follies. As with the Harlowe Cardi Combo, these Huez leggings cater to both classic and mesh bodies as well. I opted to get just the classic package which contains five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer, which is the one pictured. On the other hand, the package for both classic and mesh avatars include five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) and sizes for the Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You’ll also receive an alpha layer for the fitting. I am just in love with the unique silver color of the Huez leggings and will definitely be wearing more of it as end of the year festivities draw closer.

Paired up with the Huez leggings is the Skelly swimsuit in Ultraviolet from Alaskametro that you can get for 25 L at the Spookzilla hunt. The Skelly swimsuit comes in classic clothing layers as well as appliers for TMP, Slink and mesh bodies that use the Omega system. Hunt around the Spookzilla sim for five other prizes from Alaskametro and you may be able to find the Skelly swimsuit in two other colors as well as makeup and nail polish. I’ve heard about Alaskametro through posts from Astrid so now’s my chance to try products from this merchant out!

Footwear in the picture on the left is also available in at the Spookzilla hunt. If you catch the ghostie carrying the Hunter boots, you’ll be able to get these amazing pair for 25L. The Hunter boots are a fit for classic avatars or those with mesh feet as the package includes one pair in unrigged mesh, pairs in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and fits for TMP, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. And to top it off there’s a hud included so that you can fiddle around with the look of your new boots.

The hair I’m wearing in this picture is from Love and is also for the Hocus Pocus event. The luck and the right amount of magic you’ll be able to win this beautifully messy hairstyle that comes in a fatpack of colors. Just creep up near the bottle containing the prize and say hocus pocus in main chat to be eligible for the game. Don’t forget the game is case sensitive and you should use small letters. You’ll be able to play once per 24 hours though if you don’t want to wait you can purchase the hair for 50L. The Hocus Pocus event runs until the 4th of November.

 

Mix and match it up headshot

The final stretch!

Not only can you find clothing and footwear at Spookzilla, there are skins to be had as well. The hunt and event are hosted by Toxxic Rhiannyr of Alterego and Enertia so the beautiful skins that you can find in several of the ghosties are from Alterego. Being a skin junkie I love trying out new skins and was very very happy with these beautiful top quality finds. The texture of these skins are super smooth and I just love the dark makeup on them. There’s also something a little different about the ghosties carrying gifts from Alterego and Enertia. If you’re a group member they will yield their gifts for free. Just be sure to wear your group tag while hunting and at the time of me writing this, group is free to join. If you’re not in the group each ghostie will cost 25L

Featured on the right is the Rayne skin in the Pearle tone. The package includes three classic skin with makeup and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. You will also receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. In the picture on the right, I’m also sporting two more hunt prizes from Spookzilla. The pastel goth horns in cream are brought to you by D-Style and the mouth chain by !nfinity. I just love it when I find accessories to compliment an outfit don’t you?

On the left is the is the Runa skin in Petale tone. The package includes three class skin with make and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. As with the Rayne skin package, you will receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. I’m sporting the Skull septum piercing from !nfinity (there are two other septum piercings available in the package as well) and in both pictures I’m wearing the Redrum eyes from !nfinity which includes system eyes, mesh eyes with alpha layer and huds for Catwa heads and mesh heads using the Omega system.

The Spookzilla event is running until the 31st and while I know it’s a bit of a squeeze, as you can see from all the prizes to be had it’s well worth it! Happy Hunting ghosties and happy shopping!

Dark Grace

Snapshot_004
In time with Astrid’s 25L Tuesday post for today [HERE], I have news about another 25L Tuesday find that you might like!  Just in time for Halloween priced at just 25L today, Belle Epoque has this blood stained version of her very pretty fitmesh Grace Dress which she has affectionately named Dark Grace.

To complete my bloody look today, I have added the Punk’d makeup applier that has added bruised eyes, a busted lip and a bit of blood to the nose.  Not too blood drippy, just a little bit of beat up from a long night of dark mischief!  This is a free group gift at The Horror that is compatible with the system face in the form of a tattoo layer and also Omega for Omega compatible mesh heads… like my Catwa Candy Head.

Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I love 25L Tuesdays! Especially when the goodies are versatile like they are today! On a Lark has out a beautiful new dress in lots of colors for only 25L each that comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fits for Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass. This dress is a classic roleplay dress… BUT! It looks awesome as a go to dress for everyday wear as well… which makes it perfect for my inventory. And for the 25L price tag? I bought it in lots of colors!

I also stopped by Luas where my 25L bought me this awesome handbag and back-back set. You get both the handbag shown as well as a backpack (not shown) for your single 25L price. There were 3 other colors/designs, if the one in the picture above doesn’t suit you.

Full Circle 2

Chop Zuey also has out some beautiful new gifts that I wanted to share with you, and I really fell in love with their Circles Set. You can pick up the Circles Necklace in Gold as a group gift if you are a group member (the group fee is 350 but this gives you access to lots of regular group gifts). The earrings are a courtesy gift and FREE to all under the FabFree board. Just pay 0L and pick up the pretty matching earrings completely FREE 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
