A game Inside a Game

A game Inside a Game
When I am not living my best Secondlife, I like to play video games.  Of course, Secondlife has everything you can possibly dream of in real life; so I shouldn’t have been surprised when I found this awesome arcade with playable retro games.

It was also a great location to wear my new sci-fi inspired Alexis dress I found for free at Love Fashion.  It is one of the free gifts available to members of the group (the group is free to join.)  There are also a few other group gifts to pick up while you are there.  But like all freebees, there is no telling how long this will last.  So pick up your dress while you still can.

First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

Sizes Included ( Both top and Jeans )

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Rock Around the Clock Tonight!

Rock Around the Clock Tonight!
As the saying goes, everything old is new again.  Just look at me, I am ready to go to the sock hop with this cute ’50s style poodle skirt for free on the marketplace from Norma Underwood.  The skirt itself is unrigged, so you can position the skirt to fit your avatar better.  It also comes with a BOM layer that can be used for an underskirt.  The skirt was originally designed for classic avatars, but with a little adjusting, it can work on mesh bodies as well.

I needed the perfect vintage sweater to finish off the look, so dug through my inventory and put on the Ellen Sweater from Quinnty’s Aline first blogged about in this post. The cute, argyle pattern really made the outfit complete.

Watching Paint Dry

Watching Paint Dry
I liked to draw and paint when I was a child, but I am not very artistic.  Still, I have a great appreciation for art.  When I saw this dress on the lucky board for letter “V” at Milky Way, was thrilled because it reminded me of a pop art floral painting.  There are many luck boards  at Milky Way, all free for group members. (group is free to join).  I won a few dresses during my trip there, so if you are looking to refresh your wardrobe with some cute free gifts, this is a great place to start.

A Lazy Sunday

A Lazy Sunday
A calm, relaxing Sunday is the perfect time to take a break and unwind.  Right now I am enjoying a nice up of tea (and my avatar enjoys her coffee) while I unpack my latest SL treasures.  I went to the 2Much Event and found some lovely free gifts.  I really likes this Benita dress Auralia’s booth.  The bright, yellow color is very cheery and I loved the embroidered design.  To get the dress, just join the 2Much Events free group and click the gift box.  Be sure to take a look around the event as there are plenty of lovely items for sale– and of course, more free gift.s 😉

But don’t wait too long, the 2Much Event is ending on Jan 16th.  You don’t want to miss getting this cute dress for your own.

A ’90s State of Mind

A '90s State of Mind
I was in a ’90s state of mind today and was looking for some cute clothes to suit my mood.  Luckily for me, I stumbled on this adorable ringer tank from Arata fr just 1L.  The top comes with a nice HUD that let’s you choose between several different colors and graphic prints, so you can change it up when you want.  This is not the only 1L gift from Arata.  There were two different hair styles and a balloon skirt all for 1L.  There is no telling how long this great deal will last, so pick it up while you still have a chance.

To complete the outfit, I found this great skirt for free on the marketplace by Bad Rabbit.  It is the gift version of the Kolly skirt and it comes in two patterns than can be changed with the HUD.  Who knows how long this cute skirt will be free, so grab yours as soon as you can.

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

Mermaid State of Mind

Mermaid State of Mind<
Now that the holidays are over, it is nice to take breather and just relax.  I took a nice, evening stroll on the beach this evening in the new dress I found at Drunken Elf Fest. The event is running until January 10th, with plenty of free gifts to enjoy in 2021.  I found this great great Ariel dress by Viki under the tree and there are more gifts at the designers’ stalls.  The dress has a beautiful mermaid scale texture and comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from a selection of ombre color patterns.  I wore it on the beach, but it is elegant enough to be worn to a formal event.

Don’t delay to check out these free gifts.  Drunken Elf Fest will be over before you know it

New Years in Okinawa

New Years in Okinawa
With the Christmas season winding down, all of Secondlife is getting ready for the New Year’s Festivities.  If you are lucky, you may catch the tail end of some nice events before they close for the season.  Such as the Okinawa Festival, which currently has two events running, one for Christmas and one for New Years, both accessible from the landing point.  The Christmas Festival will be over soon (December 29th) but the New Years Festival will continue until January 13th.

When you get to the landing point, there is a little quirk to get in.   If it looks like you are still on the landing point after choosing the teleport option, just press your escape key.  This should take you from the landing point into the actual shopping sim.  You got to love Secondlife and all it’s little quirks. 😉

The Okinawa New Years Festival was filled with many nice vendor stalls and almost all of them had a beautiful gift.  I picked up a few free accessories like this very pretty Tsubaki hair flower by Ayame Ame.  The cute little pinwheel (or Kazaguruma) blowing in the winter air is by ExiA and is also a free gift and their booth.

Hurry Quick and pick up your gifts.  January 13th will be here and gone before you know it.
