Prints Charming

Prints Charming

I remember there was a period of time where I had relegated animal prints to the dustbin.  I would have nothing to do with them.  No cheetah!  No Giraffe! No Brown Cow!  (hehehe) Now as the years have passed a bit, I can really get behind a pattern that is a.) colourful and madcap and b.) animal-inspired.  You won’t catch me in a traditional animal print for the most part, but this?  Bring it on!

Back to Belle Époque

Belle Époque has always been one of my favourite spots for clothing, for as long as I can remember.  The designer and owner, Janire Coba, is completely generous with group gifts too, making this a must stay in group for me!  The latest gift is this super cool dress that is a bit of a throwback while also being thoroughly modern.  To get it, join the group for just 10L and then click on the vendor.  There are a bunch of other fantastic gifts for you while you’re at it.  Oh, and since we’re at Belle Époque, you may as well pick up the latest FabFree group gift – which is this sweet ring (sized for Maitreya) that comes in 6 different colours, all changeable via HUD.  Of course, the FabFree group is FREE to join, making this little bauble entirely free.

I think this calls for some new wave music and a tequila sunrise!

I don’t know, it’s a mood!

Moody in Neon

Moody in Neon

Monday has got me feeling a bit all over the place today.  One minute I’m happy, the next I’m…not as happy!  Anyway, I’m channeling all my emotions into my lewk today, and I’ve got some eggies to keep me company.  Because, misery (and euphoria, and complacency…) loves company (and eggs)!

Parfait

In my meanderings, I came across some lucky boards at Parfait.  They’ve got a very Kawaii vibe going on, and they have me feeling comfy to escape my malaise.  It’s always nice to look comfy and cute all at the same time, a feat that often escapes us mere mortals.  The dress and layered top are free for all when your letters come up, and so are the cute socks!   No need to join a group, just have a bit of patience.  Thanks Parfait!

Afterparty

You guys know I love me some Afterparty.  The neon revolution is in full swing when you visit their store, and they always aim to bring a bit of life and light to everyone.  There’s a fun Easter egg hunt going on at the shop right now, and it’s kind of a mix of Easter, Halloween and Goth set in an atmospheric graveyard.  Take a walk through said graveyard (outside the store) and look for the 6 different eggs – each one has 8 different coloured eggs inside.   To take part, just join the Afterparty group for 10L, and then hunt away.  (There are lots of great group gifts there for you to pick up too, while you’re at it!  You’ve got until April 11th to take part.

Have fun, and keep those emotions in check!

Let’s Go

Let's Go

I was talking to one of my friends who lives on another continent.  She was telling  me about how the snowdrops are pushing their heads through the snow – a sure sign that winter was relenting.  Unfortunately, winter has a tendency to not relent in my part of the world.  We Canadians get used to having Winter last until at least April…so let’s bundle up!

Warmth for One Linden

This awesome outfit comes courtesy of Monomania and it costs only 1L!  It comes complete with the jacket, jeans, shoes (sized for Slink, Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza and Tonic), and shirt.  It comes with an HUD to change to 6 different colours too.  No need to join a group, just pay 1L to the vendor you’ll find just to the left of the main counter of the store.  Doesn’t get much easier (or toasty) than this!

A Dream in Teal

A Dream in Teal

The highs and lows of Second Life sure really are lofty and rock-bottom, aren’t they?  Either we’re rolling around on the carpet eating piles of food, hoping the day will end, or we’re getting glam and heading to the ball.   Today I’m the girl who’s got it all together – the lighting is right, the hair is sitting just so and I haven’t consumed a carb for at least 20 minutes.   I’d say that’s something to celebrate!

She Glitters, She Glows

I was making my rounds the other day and stopped at FabFree Designer 2.0 program member Glitter.   My eye fell upon their own group gift and I instantly knew I had to make it mine.  It’s slinky, it’s sexy, it’s gorgeous!  It comes in this gorgeous teal hue, and it’s completely free.  Just join the free Glitter group, and then click on the massive vendor at the back of the shop (you can’t miss it!).  Make sure you pick up the new FabFree gift while you’re there!

That Magic Bean Juice

That Magic Bean Juice

I was in one of those moods where I needed coffee.  It doesn’t happen that often, honestly!  I’m a tried and true tea girl (Tea, Earl Grey, Hot is my jam).  But once in a while, I need a bit of that magic bean juice to get my synapses firing.  It was late, so I nipped out to the coffee shop down the street, got an iced something or other (it was 95% sugar, obvs), and now I feel like I can attack a full hour of inventory sorting again!

Sexay!

Mangula is an endless font of amazing gifts.  I love every single one of the subscriber packs that come out of their store, because they’re really interchangeable and fantastically versatile.  The bestest part of it all is that it doesn’t take a group spot up and they’re all completely free.  When you smack the subscribo on the wall over the front desk, you gain access to the full wall of gifts, including this top and shorts combo I’ve got on.  You can wear the lacy bralette with or without the fishnet top.  It also comes with the shorts (belts are optional additions), OR a black skirt.  See?  OPTIONS!  There are so many more fantastic gifts there, do take the time to check them out!

The Kawaii Energy

The Kawaii Energy

There’s a mall where I live that specializes in all things Asian.  You can get pretty much anything you need from that part of the world there (weirdly flavoured chips, Hello Kitty toasters, and as many sea cucumbers as your heart desires).  Back in the early 2000s, I went there with a good friend of mine and was introduced to the joys of insanely adorable stickers and stationery from Japan and Korea.  There’s not as much of it nowadays, it’s all mostly been replaced by cell phone covers – but I’m always trying to recapture the colourful girly-ness of it all!

Super Kawaii

Energy Weekend price is in full effect, which is exciting in itself (we love a good deal), but along with all the fun shopping also comes a few very nice free group gifts for those who join the free Energy Weekend Price group.  If you’d like to grab the HUD with all the info, you can head to the Buyer’s Room HERE.   I did so, and found all the info about this weekend’s free gifts quite easily.  My first stop was Absen where I got this semi-transparent dress (and matching boots, btw).  Very nice indeed!  Then what really got me in the Kawaii mood was this fun aura by Amazing.  There are three versions in the box, but I opted for the cute hearts, flowers and pandas.  They’ll trail behind you as you walk and fall about you if you’re just standing around.  Fun!  It’s all free – but only for the weekend, so don’t delay!

This is Fine!

This is Fine!

Sometimes I feel like I’m the dog on this shirt.   This is fine!  Yes!  Allllllll good….. But then I realise that looking on the bright side isn’t necessarily always a bad thing.  At least, it gets me through a lot.  What about you?  Have you felt this way at all since last March?  At least we can poke a bit of fun at it all, now and then.

All Good in the Hood

Corvus are spoiling us with this hilarious and rather apt sweatshirt.  There’s a version for both males and females in the box, and it’s completely free.  No need to join a group here, just click on the vendor and buy for 0L.  See – it IS fine!

High Pony

I always love a good crazy ponytail, and when it’s this bold and brash, it makes me even happier.  It’s the latest group gift from Love, and it kinda puts a smile on my face.  To get it, you’ll have to join the group for 50L, but there are quite a few group gifts there (even some fun clothing and more hair).  You’ll also find a matching hairbase to go with it, which is a nice added touch.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and you can switch the side of the ponytail with the style HUD.  Yay!

IT’S ALL FINE!  REALLY! 😉

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Once upon a time there was a little avatar named Aline.  She wrestled with herself every New Year’s Eve, and wondered “do I put on a dress and head out to a dance floor, or do I put on some comfies, hop on the bed with some chips and cuddle with the nearest fluorescent light?”  Well, for the moment – you can see what she decided!

Hi!

My comfy NYE look comes from two easy stops on the grid for you today.  Stop one is Meow.Hi, who have a new group gift out!  The loose and sexy tank top I’ve got on comes in a pile of different candy-coloured hues, and they are free when you join the free Meow.Hi group!  Versatile, I should say!  There are a few other gifts to grab there while you’re at it too!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky

So Mellow

Mellowcute have also put out a new group gift for their members, and that is this sweet pair of snowflake-laden short shorts.  They’re excellent for people wrestling with the heavy decision about whether to celebrate in one’s skybox or to bust out onto the dance floors of Second Life.  They are really comfy though, so I know what my decision is…for now!  The Mellowcute group is 30L to join, and you’ll find two other very nice gifts there too.

I was asking a friend last night:  are you a multicolour Christmas light person, or a warm white Christmas light person?  I sometimes think we all fall squarely into one category or another, but I’m quite likely wrong.  I’m usually the warm white lights person.  You know, all golden hued and classic…but then today I put these lights on and I was suddenly all about the riot of rainbow colours.   Ah, the beauty of choice!

Feeling Lucky

LSR have updated their immense wall of lucky letters again, adding three new lewks for the holidays.  I didn’t have to spend too much time waiting there until my letter came up – and I was quite pleased with what I got!  This cinched dress is a bit poufy, a bit tight, and entirely sexy.  PLUS the boots are included too!  Even if you don’t get one of the three new outfits, your letter will surely appear on one of the other bajillion boards on the wall.  Win-win!  The LSR group is currently 99L to join, and there are sooooo many gifts that’s it’s insanely worth joining.

Riot

The garland of lights heaped on my shoulders is a new group gift from Nanika.  They flash intermittently between different bright colours, and certainly give an aura of party to any room you walk into! Join the Nanika group for 50L, and then you’ll find this gift in group notices (there’s a dark and light version…woot!).  Don’t forget to visit the store to pick up the other myriad of gifts while you’re at it.

So, which are you?

It’s me again FabFree!  I feel like we’ve been trying to smush in as much Halloween coverage as we can here on the blog!  I’ve got a quick and cheerful hunt for you that ends quite soon that I really wanted to tell you about so you don’t miss out!  This sure is a busy Halloween season in SL!

To Safira We Go!

As mentioned, there’s a non-challenging hunt going on at Safira, with lots of cute outfits in blacks and oranges.  I picked up the Neidi romper (which really can be worn at any time of the year, and also comes in heart and flower – covered versions) for just 15L and a bit of hunting.  Keep your eyes peeled for the little pumpkins lying around the store.  It’s not too difficult, I promise!  You’d better hurry though, this hunt ends on November 1st!

More Hair, You Say?

I told you yesterday about Limerence’s latest group gift, and now I’m going to skip over to the other side of the sim to Ayashi, where there’s another free hairstyle for you!  Join their free group and you’ll get this blunt bob hairstyle in a reddish hue.  It’s quite cute!  Head over to Ayashi for yours!

Happy Halloween FabFree!
