This One’s For the Bloggers

Flames of Love

To the Photographers and Bloggers!

It’s about time I showed some love to all the amazing bloggers and photographers out there. You know you all inspire me to do better… I just love browsing Flickr and checking out everyone’s pictures! I have three cute freebies today for all the bloggers and photographers of SL to enjoy.

Posin’

I have been working on setting up a small photo studio for myself so I was looking for the perfect pose stand. I was tearing my hair out trying to find the perfect one! I found a great little pose stand from Shanti tucked away in my inventory. This stand is free, and you will find it at the front of their store on the wall cubby in a small little box. No group is needed for this little freebie. The pose stand is no copy, so be careful not to lose it! Make sure to rezz the gift on a sandbox or on your land. Once you have it opened, just rezz it at your place, click “edit”, and then “drag” animations into the contents menu of the pose stand. I was able to add ALOT of my poses to it, so this is going to be very useful for my blogging ventures! I used the Shanti pose stand to create the photographs in my post today in my new studio.

Some of the poses I loaded up into the stand are from an lar [poses]. They have many freebies on their Marketplace. I have been known from time-to-time to spread the news of these freebies to any blogger friends I meet. They are so great! The pose I am wearing today is from the free Ellie Series. FabFree coverage of more free poses from an lar [poses], which are all still available HERE, can be found in the following posts by my fellow bloggers and myself (check our credits to see where the poses come from):

The “Flames of Love” Backdrop

Finally, the backdrop behind me is another freebie at Shanti. Just head to the front of the store and pick it up in the little yellow bag. No group join is required for this one! It’s so pretty! It has a glowing hear in the background with lovely purple patterns and shine. Radiant!

Here Comes the 4L Bride!

A Blushing Bride for Just 4L

Love is in the air and SL’s wedding season approaches.  Valentine’s Day weddings have a been the seasonal kick off since the beginning of time (well, virtual time, anyway).  But, what’s a bride to do if she doesn’t have oodles of Linden to spend on her special day?  Never fear, Desi is here!

I set out to create an entire wedding outfit for less than 200L including dress, shoes, hair, flowers, jewelry, makeup, and a pose. I had two rules: the outfit would have to be something I would actually wear and the items couldn’t be part of a weekly/weekend special so they’d be available to our FabFree Readers if they wanted to check them out.  In the end, this amazing outfit only cost FOUR (4!) Linden!!! (Plus a group join fee!)

Assembling an elegant bridal package was a harder task than I could have imagined, but thanks to hints and tips from my blogging sister, Jacx Broome-Waverider, I ended up with a beautiful ensemble to reflect my own tastes in bridal finery.

First, I had to say yes to a dress.   I hopped on over to Siss Boom because I remembered seeing a white gown on the Lucky Boards.  You can read more about my obsession with Siss Boom‘s FREE no-group lucky boards here.  It took about 20 minutes, but HOORAY!  I found a beautiful simple white gown named Wayward.  It’s elegant and comes in two styles – sheer and solid.  I am wearing shear.  The solid version has modesty backing to the top.  Cost : FREE!!!

Dress Sizes:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP

Next came hair.  Jacx reminded me that No-Match recently had a bun posted as the group gift. We teleported over to find a new group gift, but quickly made our way to the VIP room.  The group gift was not actually a bun, but, rather, hair attachments (called No-Embrace) that could be used with bridal hair. However, in perusing the fabulous room of VIP Gifts, I found No_You Rock which is my style of a messy but classy updo complete with pearls in it.  I paired that with the No-Embrace Pearls accessory to create a pretty head of hair for the wedding outfit.  Price: two free group gifts with 50L join.

Beloved & Truth Closeup

I tried to find a nice veil for cheap, but didn’t score.  The ones I tested off of MP were, well, circa 2006.  I did, however, find a pretty Pearl and Pewter Tiara from Nightfairy.  You have to fiddle a little with it, but, overall, it works.  Cost: 1L

For jewelry, I stalked MP for a good hour to find something pretty.  I found two sets from Beloved that I liked, but settled on the Teardrop set in Silver because it matched the Tiara.  Cost: 1L

For flowers, I found a simple but pretty bouquet at Wedding Princesse on MP that is currently being offered as a dollarbie.  This really is a no-frills bouquet, but you only need it for a hot minute before the dancing begins!  Cost: 1L

For shoes, I found LaPerla’s Apple Sandal for Maitreya in White on MP.  They are simple and pretty, but you really can’t see them under the dress. Cost: 1L

Finally, to strike a pose for my official wedding album, Jacx sent me to MP to An Lar poses where for 0 Linden, I picked Like a Lady #4.  Cost: FREE!!!

Total Cost for this outfit and pose?  4L (plus 50L group fee for No-Match)

Classic Hottie

Classic Hottie
This will be a quickie. Of course I mean the car, being the “classic hottie” LOL. 😛

Picture For His Wallet

Back in the day, a man usually carried a pin-up picture of his girlfriend.  The real purpose of the picture was not the girlfriend. No, it really was a picture of his baby, the all-important classic car. To show all his buddies, his hot girlfriend, and his hotter car. What better way to be the hot girlfriend than in Legendaire Sally 2 Outfit. From the open overall style top to the distressed, decorated denim mini skirt, this outfit says “I’m a sexy babe.” Included are a 4 color hud, for both skirt and top, plus short booties (not shown.) The added perk of this hottie outfit is the price. 49L. Sale items have changed at Legendaire, so it’s a great time to pop over and check out what’s new.

Buckle Up Buttercup

Buckles, buckles everywhere. When picking up the Sally Outfit, right next to it was these awesome Legendaire Jolene boots. It was love at first sight. Included with the boots (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink.) 2, 10 color huds. One to change the laces and buckles, one to change the base boot. Also on sale for 49L.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time

Chilly

I have the AC turned all the way up and I am starting to get chilly… I shouldn’t complain because I have everything I need here in my apartment, but let me just go grab a warm sweater and some stockings. I’ll be right back. 😉

Something to Keep You Warm

The adorable top and arm warmer I am wearing is the current group gift at MOoh! The MOoh! group costs 100 L to join, and there are so many benefits to this group! Every month, there is a brand new gift at MOoh!.

This amazing group gift for the month of April includes the top and arm warmer as separates, and you can change each piece to 14 different matching textures using a colour change hud. This item is so versatile and could be worn with a variety of items! I matched this gift with some adorable stockings and shorts from MOoh! that I already owned. Being a group member at MOoh! gives you access to a 150 L gift card every month, which has allowed me to collect quite a lot of lovely clothes from this amazing store over time. Remember to look at the credits at the bottom of my post to see all the details! 🙂

Who would have thought it’s only the second snow this year?! I live in New England where there is supposed to be tons of it at this time of year, however, it’s been lacking lately. Wait! I just complained again about it… UGH!

With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP
    • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!
