Elegant Evening

I love my tee shirts and jeans and beat up old sneakers as much as the next girl. But isn’t it fun to get a little fancy once in a while? I like to be reminded I can be an elegant lady on her way to a lovely evening out with her gentleman. And I found a gorgeous little lace dress that’s perfect for that evening…. plus, it’s free!

Evening Elegance

This is the ‘Sylvana’ dress from NY Designs and it’s one of the several current Group Gifts available. All of the gifts are awesome but the lace and pretty sleeves really called to me today. Sylvana comes with a HUD with six jewel tone choices. I have a feeling this dress will be in my regular rotation or any time I want to be a little extra pretty.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza

Late Night Conversation
Hi hi Fabulous Fab Free’rs! We are right at the end of the week and I know I’m not the only one who could use some r and r, or rest and relaxation. The most recent group gift set by LsR is perfect for a little lounging. Additionally, Xxxtaci has a flaming cool pair of group gift glasses to help you look cool no matter what you have planned.

Get Some Camo – This pale pink camo sports bra and panties/shorts set is free to all LsR group members. This free group gift includes the top and bottoms in several mesh sizes. The waist band, and the band around the bottom of the top (not sure what you call that, hmm) both read “Sexy Girl Sport” repeated all the way around. The fabric has a knitted look too it also, which is what made me think of this set as being extra comfy to lounge around in. To get yours you’ll need to head over to LsR and join the free-to-join group. There are several group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Flame Glasses – Okay maybe these glasses don’t exactly go with the outfit, but they are so cute on that I don’t even care. They have a rose gold colored partial frame, and the cool flame shaped cuts on the side of these “cat-eye” shaped glasses make them irresistible. They are also equipped with resize scripts. If you’re going to wear glasses, they may as well look awesome. That said, it also helps these glasses are a current free group gift at Xxxtaci. The Xxxtaci group also happens to be free to join! One quick note, the vendor for these glasses does require you to pay one linden, however the 1 linden will be instantly refunded.

Here are the details!

Tropical Summer Days

La Isla Bonita
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! Don’t mind Pru’s expression, she has resting b!$&# face. I’m really quite happy with the fabulous finds I have to share with you. I hope you like them too. For today I have 3 goodies, this summer hat and hairstyle from Pink Hustler, the gorgeous tattoo from This is Wrong, and this fun sundress from Continuum.

The Hair & Hat – A good hat hairstyle is sometimes hard to find in Second Life. This one had me at hello. It’s one of quite a few group gifts available at Pink Hustler. The gift comes with an “Essentials” color hud that also has some pretty pastel options. Additionally there’s a few color options for the hat. The Pink Hustler group has a steep one time join fee of 500 linden. I do however thing the abundance of gifts make the fee worth while.

The Tattoo – This colorful tattoo reminds me of fractals and stained glass. I think I’ll be wearing it often! It is a free Lucky Letter board prize at This is Wrong. No group is needed to participate. There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at This is Wrong. Two have female tattoos with appliers for female bodies, and two have male tattoos with appliers for male bodies. This tattoo comes in several appliers with the option of regular and a faded version.
Appliers Included: Maiterya/Belleza, Slink, TMP

The Sundress – The bright yellow and teal sundress Pru has on is the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Continuum. It comes in a few mesh sizes and is free to all Fab Free group members, just wear your Fab Free group tag, pay the vendor 1 linden, your gift will be delivered, and you’ll be refunded your 1 linden. If you’re not a Fab Free group member, the Fab Free group is free to join.  Also, included with this cute little sundress is an alpha layer, so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitted Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Altamura, eBody

Here are the details, enjoy!

Oh Sunshine Day

Oh Sunshine Day
Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all fine and well. Isn’t it amazing how sometimes your outfit can completely affect your mood? I do not mind admitting that I really had fun with this cute, yet simple outfit. I hope you enjoy these fun FREEbies as much as I do. First, I’ll tell you all about this fun skirt from Cremosas, then the equally fun pearls from Maxi Gossamer.

Skirt

There isn’t anything I dislike about this group gift skirt available at Cremosas. I also think it’s one of those versatile statement wardrobe pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on where and when you want to wear it.  To get your copy of this FREE group gift, head over to Cremosas and join their FREE in-world group. There is no cost to join the group. Alternatively if you do not have a group slot open, you can pick up this skirt on the Marketplace for just 50 linden, no group needed.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EVE – (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Altamura, TMP

Pearls

I love these FREE group gift pearls from Gossamer Jewelry. They are such a pale shade of pink, I almost didn’t notice they weren’t white. They also come in several versions or variations for lots of versatility. There are 7 individual necklaces, a short combo, and a long combo.  Pru is wearing the “long combo” version. Each necklace can be resized via touch menu.  To get your copy make your way to the Maxi Gossamer/Gossamer Jewelry store and join the FREE-to-join Gossamer Jewelry group. The group gift vendor is on the wall near the entrance.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Love Some Body…

Show your body some love this holiday season with the (almost) FREE Teleport Hub group gift at Altamura.  Pick up Aaron, a bento, full body mesh avatar for being a member of the Teleport Hub group. Not a member? Join for just 10L and gift yourself this Christmas. Included are the body and modifiable shape, and the following HUDs:

  • Alpha
  • Facial Pose
  • Facial AO
  • Hands
  • Face animation pack

I didn’t have much time to “play” with Aaron, but if I was looking for a starter bento mesh body, he’d be the one. Capping off Aaron is the Shizuki Cap w/ Hair, the FREE group gift at ARGRACE that I previously showed [HERE].

Christmas Jewells….

I stopped by Miss Jewell where there are several hunts taking place.  I found the Male Mesh Leather Jacket, the Feel My Sack Hunt gift and the 3 Lithium Shirt, the prize in the Christmas Joy Hunt. Both these Items come in classic sizes XS-XL. The items in both of these hunts are just 1L each. I also have more gifts to show form Miss Jewell later.

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.
