The Frostbite Was Worth It!

The Frostbite Was Worth It!

Right, I know I was at the beach experiencing Christmas the Southern Hemisphere way yesterday, but suddenly I’m in the mood for wintry climes and hot drinks.  As per usual, I’m not really dressed for the weather, but when you look this cute, how can you possibly care about a bit of frostbite?

Wishing for Winter

Wishing for Winter

It’s the time of year in my world physical and virtual that I start to wish for snow. Perhaps because I almost never get to experience temperatures cold enough for snow where I live, I find that I long for that story-book white snowy winter. I am also so ready to break out the winter wardrobe. Thank goodness Second Life has me covered, here I get my snow, and a pretty stellar closet full of winter clothing. Speaking of clothing, this outfit is the most recent group gift at Vooh.

Vooh

There are actually several group gifts available at Vooh, Group Gift 76 is the most recent. I really like the look of this all-in-one outfit. The jacket, sweater dress, and undershirt are all one piece. I love that it makes me appear as though my hands are tucked warm into my pockets. Also, the outfit includes matching boots, and a beret (not worn). The jacket/sweater dress combo has a color change hud with several solid color options for the main part of the jacket, the dress, the undershirt, as well as the metal parts of the jacket. Additionally the hud will allow you to tint each part, and adjust things like glow and materials. The boots and beret have their own similar customization huds with matching color choices. The required Vooh store group has a join fee of 50 linden, which if you ask me is well worth it.

Jacket/Sweater Dress Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer
Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza (Freya, Isis/Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Fitted Mesh, TMP

Multifaceted Purple

Multifaceted Purple

Something has always pleased me about the colour purple.  It’s like it can go from rock & roll to shabby chic in a way that many other colours cannot.  I think it’s equally at home in growling lightning as it is in lavender fields, which kind of really represents a bit of my own self.  I’m just a bit of everything, I guess!

Happy Birthday!

It’s AsteroidBox’s Fifth Birthday, and that calls for some celebration of all things dark and moody.  AsteroidBox has always been one of my faves, so I’m quite pleased to wish them all the best.  There are two gifts out on the counter there at the moment- one is this cute t-shirt and skirt combo (that comes with an extensive HUD to change the skirt colour, as well as the lightning colour on the shirt), the second is the little crystal necklace too.   The outfit is free for members of the AsteroidBox group (which is 75L to join) and the necklace is free for everyone!  There’s also a rumour of another gift for group members being released today, so do check it out!

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!

Read My Mind

Read My Mind

If you could read my mind like the expression on my face would you know what I am thinking?

It was one of those nights out like I hadn’t had in a long while. Summer in the south means even the nights are hot, but not nearly as sweltering as the day. Just about any excuse to get out and take your mind of the heat after the sun has gone down is welcome. Street racing is a popular pass-time, and it brings with it an exciting atmosphere where one can socialize after dark. Afterward there’s always a favorite dive bar where everyone is welcome, even if you don’t drink, and people play pool all night long even though the table hasn’t been level in years. It was fun to get dressed up, and get out of the house for a reason that didn’t include grocery shopping. To see, and be seen.

Eternal Limited

This is one of those outfits that you dress up in for no one else. You wear it for yourself because it looks good, and you feel good in it. From the moment I put this dress on I felt like a sexy goth pinup ghoul, like it was made just for me. Depending on the lighting this sexy dress from Eternal Limited has the look of satin, latex, or leather. The purple flames on the skirt remind me of the custom paint jobs you see on vintage hot rods, and for me that is just icing on an already delicious cake. Because of the hip-high slits on either side of the dress I felt more comfortable wearing it like a long top with cute black skinny pants. So now that I’ve sold at least some of you this hot little dress, I’ll tell you the price. Free. Yes, free. It is one of several free group gifts at Eternal Limited and the group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, EBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Legacy (Original, Perky)

This is Wrong

Though the name of the store is This is Wrong, their new Stay at Home Club gift tattoo is so very right. It is a unisex upper body tattoo and it’s completely free. You do not need to join a group to get it. As with most of the Stay at Home Club gifts you just pay the vendor zero linden. This free tattoo gift at This is Wrong is waiting just inside the store and to the right along with their previous Stay at Home Club gift which was originally shown here.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Legacy, BOM/Classic Tattoo Layer

Lost Bunny

Lost Bunny

This lost little bunny is looking to find her way home after a long day of hopping about and hiding chocolate.  I can’t seem to find the right path, but I guess it’s alright since it’s just so lovely out.  Any pointers?

Off to Seniha!

Before I head home, I suppose I should tell you all where I got my adorable bunny look from.  Seniha are spoiling us with their latest group gift.  To get it, all you have to do is join their free group, and you’ll end up with this bodysuit (and yes, it has a tail…), cuffs, collar and ears.  It comes with a very extensive HUD to change the colours of each part of the outfit!  It’s perfect for a sweet and sexy Easter-themed look.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Pose it Out

If you’re looking to add to your collection of poses, then you might want to head to La Vie en Pose.  This event is crammed with free gifts, and you’ll certainly find something you love.  I found this lovely little pose at the Indigo Poses booth, and to get it all I had to do was join the FREE Vie en Pose group.  You’ll have lots of fun posing and taking pictures with all the gifts on offer!

This Easter Bunny is ready for a long springtime nap!

A Splash Without Too Much Cash

A Splash Without Too Much Cash

I love looking like a million Lindens, when all I’ve spent is a few.  Or none, you know… Today I only shelled out a small piddling amount and yet I look pretty darn good if I do say so myself!

Be Lovely

There are loads of mini hunts going on right now at the Be Lovely sim, home of Safira, Seniha, and Blossom & Seeds (and many more).  Each store has a little hunt key posted at their entrance, and there are so many pink and red items that I really didn’t want to live without.  My first stop was Seniha, where I picked up this easy breezy number, which I expect is probably a bathing suit of some sort, but I’m styling it as a dress because life’s too short!  I got it by hunting just a little bit, and paying 15L for the contents.  It comes in both red or the patterned version you see on the skirt.  It works for me!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

VALENTINE'S HUNT!!!

Oh right, Maitreya!

Oh, by the way…if you haven’t heard yet, Maitreya has updated their body.  There are a few extra little features for you to customize your look, so head over to the Maitreya mainstore to grab your free redelivery (if you already have the Maitreya body)!

Have fun hunting Fab Free!
