The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

Relax… and visit a friend.

Relax_001

Visiting a Friend!

This is a good time of year for catching up with friends. I was visiting a friend’s house this morning and I fell in love with some furniture he had out… this room divider and table. It turned out that he got it as a free group gift for the L’Homme Readers Group. Well I was all excited and wanted the gift for myself!

A trip to get my own…

So we took a trip to UnKindness, my friend kindly escorted me, and I picked up the free UnKindness Bamboo Hall Set for myself. It does come with decor but I like it just topped with a plant myself. I did include a vendor advertisement picture at the bottom of this post so you can see everything that is included in this great free gift. All the pieces are just 1 prim each so this is very low land impact and practical for setting out!

A new sweater too!

After seeing Love and Carson sporting their matching sweaters in their blog post {here} my friend and I decided we wanted those exact same sweaters. So we took a teleport to NUTS Inc to pick up the free POE Hunt prize there so we had something to lounge about the house in. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were matching ladies and men’s group gift sweaters out at the store too that were just as nice! The NUTS Inc group is only 5L to join and if you take your fella along, you can both have a matching sweater like the one I’m wearing in the picture above. I really like the classic colors and warm feel.

Sweater sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L with Alpha
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Put some jingle bells on…

Let it Snow_001

The White Armory has long been known for turning out beautiful gowns, dresses, and outfits. Recently they rebranded their ladies clothing line to Silvan Moon Designs. On the trail of the POE Hunt, you won’t want to miss their free gift contribution.

Put some jingle bells on.

I swear I heard jingle bells out on the snow as I stood out shivering and watching the sky. Is it too early for Santa to be checking up on us you think? I don’t think so! And I think Santa thought of me early with this free POE Hunt gift from Silvan Moon Designs. The Belladonna dress comes in a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit, and has beautiful details including the ascot scarf at the neck. It is all one piece for easy fitting.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift!

Getting ready…

Winter parties will soon be starting. All those invitations will be going out for the get togethers at different friends’ houses. I knew I needed the perfect dress to spark conversation. I can usually find what I’m looking for at Byrne! Their POE gift was no exception and I fell in love with this combination dress and mesh fur stole.

The dress has side cut outs to make it just a bit risky, while the white fur stole adds a bit of class. And of course since this is a POE Hunt gift, you can pick it up free by going to Byrne and hunting down the globe.

Dress sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

Family

Guardians_001

It’s hard to believe how close we are almost to December. To celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, Baby Monkey is giving out a special group gift to their members. All you’ll need to do is be a member of the group (it’s only 20L to join).

To get the gift

Join the group by pasting secondlife:///app/group/56b559e4-74aa-2b4a-deeb-7c5d4517fe3a/about into your local chat and then check the group notices for the gift. Notices expire after 14 days, so be sure to hurry to get this beautiful Olive Wood Nativity from Baby Monkey.

Not just for Christmas

One thing that really resonated with me about this beautiful gift from Baby Monkey is that it can speak to many people. As said in the beautiful little note that was included with the gift: “If you are not a Christian we think this is still a charming family group that speaks to the enduring love of parents for their child.” This is a gift that is for all families, not just those who celebrate Christmas.

Just 2 Prim

The lovely sculpture come in at just 2 prim and is also modifiable if you want to make it larger. Currently it is tabletop size.

Don’t get mixed up with the VIP group which costs to join. You just need the regular free store group to pick up this gift.

  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
