Sunday Stretching with Flair

Told ya I’d be back soon!

Sunday Stretching

When I logged in earlier today, I had a notecard from Flair, saying for a short 24hrs, they’d have their ballet slipper set of nail appliers as a free gift for everyone, in celebration of the new SLink pointe feet. I do not know when that 24hrs started from, but as of this post, they are still out, so I am guessing it is at least until midnight tonight, if not into tomorrow. The set is for SLink hands and feet only, and I think they are just adorable, no ballet experience necessary! I’ve included a picture of the ad itself so you get a really good look at the colour choices available.

Sunday Stretching With Flair

Oh, and are you eyeing up my comfy pink leggings I have on? They are an older free for everyone gift from Flair that is still available. It was shown here on FabFree a few years ago (I did say older) but they are still just as good today. There are 3 colours, and come in system layers as well as include a SLink Physique hud, that will also work on just the feet.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that the coming week has nothing to dread 😛 I will see you all again real soon. TTFN *waves*

An Easter Portrait in Watercolour

Happy Saturday, and it’s a long weekend to boot! I can’t believe it’s already the Easter weekend. You know what Easter means, right? All sorts of hunts here in SL! I discovered a really easy, and fairly large, Easter egg hunt, after receiving a notice from one of the participating stores. The German Land Holding Estate is hosting a Spring Fair, with lots of participating vendors, and to coincide with the Spring Fair, there is also an Easter egg hunt happening in and around the stalls. There are 103 eggs to find, each with a gift from the different stores. All you need to do is grab your free egg basket, put it on, and then wander around the stalls, clicking on free Easter eggs. You do have to be within 10M of an egg to pick it up, so no camming, and once you have picked up an egg, you will not be able to pick it up again. I managed to find 97 out of the 103…and let me tell you, there is some good stuff in these eggs!

watercolour1

The first gift I’m showing off is the absolutely gorgeous dress from Sweet E’s. This is the Water Colour Kate gown, and I really can’t express how much I am in love with this. The colours, the watercolour-like flower print, the rouching on the corset! It has to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve put on in SL, and really wish I had one in RL. LOL. It is mesh, and comes in 4 sizes ; one for Maitreya, one each for SLink and SLink Hourglass, and a single fitmesh that will fit standard sizes from XXS up to a M. I did try it with a L shape, and it did not work out well.

watercolour2

My colour coordinated bracelets are the gift you will get with you find the Luminesse egg. This gift is actually for both men and women, as the gold and magenta bracelet on my right wrist is the women’s gift, and the silver and blue band on my left arm is the men’s gift. The men’s bracelet will not shrink down enough for my M sized wrist, but I think it does make a lovely armband. I don’t normally mix metals with individual jewelry pieces, but I really did have to show you all how perfectly both worked with my dress. Like it was meant to be. You get both left and right versions of each bracelet, and they are scripted for size changing if needed.

The GLH Springfair Easter Egg hunt runs until the end of April, so you have plenty of time to go grab all the goodies. I already have plans of showing you a few more gifts in upcoming posts, so keep your eyes opened for them.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter/long weekend, and I will see you all again real soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Happy Free Hair Day Gentlemen!

Free Hair Post 1

Happy Free Hair Day Gentlemen! Hopefully, by this time next year this will be a national holiday, like Groundhog Day or Bring Your Weevil to Work Day. Given the task to scour the grid and round up some free men’s hairstyles, I am happy to present to you the results of my epic quest.

  • A – Damselfly – Ashton w/20 color hud (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • B – Amacci – Leon in Cinnamon (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)

  • H – Argrace – Minato (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • I – Emo-tions – Aidan in Brown w/ 4 color hud in 2 variations (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)

  • L – LaLa Moon Axell (FREE Gift)

 

That about wraps it up for this post, but before I go, let me tell you about two more great stops that guys should make in their ongoing search for men’s hair. One fine resource for men’s hairstyles is Alli & Ali. They have free group gifts and frequently take part in gridwide hunts. If you are looking for free hair, they are definitely worth a visit. Lastly, while they are not offering any free male hair, Truth is an excellent hair store and, as of this writing, their male hair is only 50L. For that price, they are a bargain. That’s all for me, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Wash Cart Sale- Luminesse

SnapshotLuminesse has a whole cart full of not only necklaces but all sorts of jewelry for us at The Wash Cart Sale, each item is 10L so we can fill up our jewelry boxes at this cart!

Today tho I am going to focus on necklace sets since maybe its a little quirk of mine but I like to see how a necklace is going to look before I buy them. Since sometimes from a pic you may think its short when it long or vice versa.

PicMonkey Collage Finesmith & cartAfter much back and forth I finally settled on 2 sets to show off today. The 1st set Seirah Smoke is a choker and earrings and could go from dressy to formal. It could also work with most any color since its black and white in a gold setting. I opted to pair it with a floor length formal pink dress which is FREE from Finesmith right now with a FREE group join.

PicMonkey CollageThis 2nd set is called Celestyn Jupiter, you get a necklace and earrings in lovely greens and browns in a silver setting. This necklace needs a deep plunging neckline and I lucked out and found another FREE dress at Finesmith, this one is a casual short puff dress called Garden Love.

Princess for a day

Princess for a dayI have 3 dresses fit for a Princess weather you like mesh or system layers I have something for every Princess today. So lets have a trip thru the castle on this lovely Saturday!

I started my morning wandering thru the castle in the divine Jewel periwinkle mesh dress that is a FREE subscriber gift at The Crystal Clothing Company. That is right this Princess didn’t even have to give up a group spot for this dress. Tho should you also like to join their FREE group you can pick up this dress in pink too. Every Princess has to have a tiara and I found a grand deal on mp for this dainty ^^Swallow^^ tiara, 1L 3 colors! It fits perfectly on top of this FREE gift from Amacci Hair. Alva is a lovely tight bun with a full color hud and it totally FREE no group to join.

Princess for a day

The garden looked so lovely I had to wander out there for a stroll in this delicate mesh dress that I found at JLZ fashion it is there prize for The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. I opted to hunt for the scroll which meant this dress only set me back 1L. You have the other option of buying it without hunting for 25L. It is a good deal either way. Btw I did kiss the frog and alas he didn’t turn into my Prince, maybe next time!

Princess for a day

Having changed for the 3rd time this Princess is ready to retire into the study in this beautiful system layer dress which is the FREE GG over at The White Armory (TWA) this week. But today is the last day so while staying poised rush over there right now! The group is FREE to join and there is a new GG every sunday so if you miss this dress grab the next one it will be equally pretty. This is a group worth staying in, here is another example why from Pru. The furniture is another prize from The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. You can pick up the whole set for 1L or 25L at Lilith’s Den.

Here are the details of what is in this Princess’s wardrobe so you too can be a pretty Princess for a day!

Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course 🙂

pinup2

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement 🙂 Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find 🙂 The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

It’s Canada Day eh! Yes, I really do say eh.

Canada1

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks! I hope today is a day full of BBQ, maybe a beer or 2 (or 3) and fireworks!  I thought I’d put together a FabFree-esque look for my Canada day, and I lucked out and found a BBQ to go to.

Canada2

Almost everything I have on was found on the Marketplace. In fact, I had given my Mom a heads up about keeping an eye out for cute Canadian things in her SL travels, next thing I knew, my IM was flooded with links to great Marketplace finds. One of them being this super cute mesh dress. The Babele Fashion Simply Mesh Canada dress is L$50 and comes with a pair of cute system feet heels as well (which I am not wearing). IDK why, but I just love the little detail of the pocket on the front, it’s a perfect place to put your beer tokens in if you are out at an event with a beer garden! Whoever said the stereotype of Canadians liking beer is not true, is wrong…well, at least for this girl 🙂

The next must have for my outfit, fitting in with the fact that I am in Western Canada, and on the prairies, is my fun cowboy hat. Make that cowgirl hat 😉 The EC Canada Flag Hat is from Ella’s Creation’s, and is only L$25.

In keeping with the kinda-cowgirl theme, I needed boots! I wasn’t able to find any Canada day themed ones that I wanted, but I did find a pair that intrigued me. The Riders Navarro Boots are free, and they are actually a starter kit. You get the boots, with 3 basic textures, Black, Brown and Pink. The neat thing is, you can then buy add-ons for them, such as different textures, toe caps, spurs, you name it. There was even a pack with flowers in it that I saw. Those add-ons, however, are not free. Honestly though, the boots are so fantastic as is, I really don’t feel like I am missing out too much by only having access to the basics.

My final addition, I had already had in my inventory, but are still available on the Marketplace. The Hopscotch Maple Nails for SLink hands and feet are only L$1, and they are the perfect icing to my Canadian outfit cake!

Speaking of cake, they have a cake here at this cute little BBQ being put on by Divnity. You should really come check it out, and for all the Americans reading this, right beside the Canada Day setup is a 4th of July set up. So, to all those dual-citizens, you only need to go to one place for both parties! How great is that 🙂

Oh, I almost forgot, if you don’t have any fireworks to go to, you can get your own mini one, a sparkler that is! Plethora put out a pack of handheld sparklers for Lazy Sunday this past weekend, but they are still available at the store for the Lazy Sunday price of L$75. You get 7 different colours, plus a Red, White and Blue colour changing one.

OK., I am off to find some more festivities, hopefully ending with fireworks. Hope you all have a great Canada Day! TTFN
