Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams
He’s so tall and handsome as hell
He’s so bad but he does it so well
And when we’ve had our very last kiss
My last request it is
Say you’ll remember me standing in a nice dress
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your wildest dreams
Wildest dreams

With Panache

I’m having one of those moments where I feel dreamy and it’s all down to the creamy goodness of a dress I’ve got on right now.  I love the mix between good girl and bad girl that it just gives off with the latex and lace, but in such a prim colour… love it!  You can get this fun dress from Apple Blossom by joining the free Panache Events group and peeking in group notices.  If cream latex isn’t your thang, then there are several other really nice colours to choose from in the HUD.  The necklace is also included and you can change the colour of the stones as well.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart

I’m taking a little break from all the snowy sims (which I super love btw), and heading somewhere warm and classic for a little break from the drifts.  I’m conjuring up images of vast beaches – all empty, and jungles with mysterious ruins in them.  And of course, I’m wearing the most impractical outfit to take in all the scenery.  It’s ok. you don’t get blisters in SL!

Totally Utterly Uber

This latest round of Uber has a few surprises up its sleeve.  And by up its sleeve, I  mean under the Christmas tree!  Head to the middle of the event, and you’ll find quite a few gift boxes, all set to 0L, each filled with some super nice gifts.  No need to join a group here, it’s all free!  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE dress by Apple Blossom sized for Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, Perky and Petite
  • FREE shoes by Eudora sized for Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE hair by No.Match with an HUD of natural colours to play with

Uber is going until January 22nd, so you have some time to visit!

I wonder if there’s a Starbucks in this jungle…

Christmas Rainbow

Christmas Rainbow

In the midst of all the red and green, it’s time for a bright hit of rainbow!  I know that I am pretty partial to a smattering of colour (I mean, check out our FabFree rainbow… c’mon), and I have found the perfect Christmas haul filled with allllll the colours.

We usually see a lot of rainbows during Pride month in June, but Pride @ Home is reminding us that being proud of who you are isn’t only relegated to one month!  Head on over to the Pride @ Home sim, and you’ll find all sorts of free gifts, no need to join a group!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

Confusing the Masses

Confusing the Masses

Have you ever been in a mood where you want to wear something completely insane just to make a statement?  You know, the kind of thing that people don’t understand when you walk into a room, and you’re completely ok with that?  I get that way sometimes – an errant flower crown, a pair of sparkly shoes and a little pin with the word “skint” (shoutout to my UK peeps!) on it… I like to confuse when I’m feeling completely confused myself.  Anyone else do that?  Maybe it’s just me!

The Confusing Part

There’s not actually anything confusing about how to get your mitts on this cute jumpsuit from Apple Blossom.  I styled it a bit all over the place so that I could turn some heads, and I’m having a blast with it.  To get your own (which I want to see how YOU style…) by joining the Apple Blossom group for free, then waiting by the lucky boards for your letter to come up (they’re just outside the front door of the main store).  There are some other great prizes too, so if you’re not in the mood for a purple jumpsuit, you may fancy something else!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Not so confusing after all!

Loud and Proud

Loud and Proud

We’re still rolling through the awesome Pride gifts that have cropped up all over the grid recently, and this one I’ve got on is no exception.  I’m swathed in rainbows on the daily now, and I’m pretty cool about it.  Not gonna lie!  June has been shaping up to be an awesome month on the freebie and group gift front, and it’s all so bright and happy that it never fails to lift my mood.

See Love Blossom

There’s a free group gift over at Apple Blossom to celebrate pride!  This top and jeans is free for members of the Apple Blossom group, which is free to join.  The top and jeans can be worn separately and have loads of different colour options in the HUD.  While you’re there, you’ll also find a skirt to go with this cool look… so many options!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Happy Pride!

Going Coconuts

Going Coconuts
It’s time for a bit of getaway.  I’m going for a bit of a 1950s beach look, but entirely and completely not 1950’s at the same time.  Does that make sense?  It’s one of those moments where you mix your ideas together so hard that you’re really not sure what you’ve come up with, but you like it anyway.  Whatever this is, it’s fun – let’s dive into the details!

A Little 2MUCH

This cute bathing suit from Apple Blossom is the group gift over at the 2MUCH event.  Join their group for free and it’s all yours! It also comes with an HUD that gives you the option to add some sleeves if that’s what you’re in the mood for.  The 2MUCH event runs until February 16th, so don’t leave it too long!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

In the Bag

This classic bag that contains all my obviously essential beach needs (aka 7 fashion magazines and money for drinks in coconuts) is the latest group gift from Vive Nine.  There are two different versions in the box (the other one has wads of money sticking out of it), and so many different hold options that range from girly to dainty to even a rezzable option.  Cool!  The Vive Nine group is free to join, so go grab yours!

Feeling at Home

I was poked the other day with information about this pretty location called Caribbean Homes! They aim to provide free homes for residents of Second Life, and even some affordable rent options.  You can set your home to here or chill on the dance floor and wander about in the beachy atmosphere.   So just to reiterate, yes…there are FREE homes here that you can live in!  If you want to know more, swing by Caribbean Homes, and join their group to find out more about this lovely little community that aims to give back to SL.

Join their group by copying and pasting this link in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/2b3f464a-9110-b373-8639-bedf20c2b4f8/about

Now, where’s my coconut drink?

All the Blossoms

All the Blossoms

In the cold depths of January, all I can really think of is a bit of sunshine and warmth.  It’s been grey in my part of the world for the past forever weeks, and so the thought of sunshine and delicate cherry blossoms warms my insides a bit.  It’s all I can think of!

Blossoms

Apple Blossom just put out a new group gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group (SLFO)! The group is free to join, and with it you can access to lots of quite lovely gifts.  There are two different versions of this dress available for members – this one I’ve got on as well as a plain pink one.  You can also wear it with or without sleeves, if that’s your thang!  It’s sexy and cute all at the same time, which makes me one happy camper.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

Belle

Belle Époque have also put a new free gift out for members of the SLFO group:  a lovely set of bento nails.  They come in some really cool holographic-esque colours, and I think you can make them work with loads of different looks.  They come rigged for Maitreya and Legacy hands.  Again, this group is free to join, making these nails entirely free!

I’m not going back to the cold!  NEVAHHHH!
