It’s A Random Cold Day

BDR
Hello Fabulouses!  Yep, it’s just another random cold day here in Canada and it appears to be cold today inworld too!  Of course that is depending on which sim you are standing on at the moment.  I took some time to visit Angel Bay which is a lovely Italian style sim with a couple of seasons happening if you travel far enough.  There are plenty of interesting faces on this sim as well and as I was taking this shot, Flickr Artist Frenchy25 took a snap too and included me in his digital art.  You can see it [HERE].  Thank you for taking my photo Frenchy25, and it was a pleasure meeting you.

So…  About My Sweater

Today I am coming to you to share news about a free fatpack of sweaters I came across that you can pick up with a free group join.  At Beautiful Dirty Rich, or BDR as some know it by…  You can pick up the Random Cold Day Sweater group gift.  This playful animal printed sweater includes tons of mesh sizes as listed below and as you can see from the vendor ad, included is a 10 colour texture HUD so you can wear your favourite colour.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh for Classic Avatar XS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara

Life is a Highway

On the road again...

I Can’t Drive 55

I finally had enough of the cold and snow and decided to take a drive in my new car.

I hadn’t been out driving on the Mainland roads for quite a while, and let me tell you, it is not for the faint-hearted. In one trip, I saw everything from the ridiculous to the… well, more ridiculous. I passed a WWII-era airbase floating several meters off the ground, a seriously overcrowded breedables farm, a “Kittycat Whorehouse” (for humans? cats? humans dressed as cats?), and a giant baby with Donald Trump’s head holding the Scales of Justice. I have no idea what that last one was all about, but somebody is clearly trying to send a message, LOL! 😯

If you’re looking for somewhere to drive, be sure to check out the Second Life Road Network Directory for maps and suggested routes. I did most of my driving on Routes 8 and 9, and there are plenty of Rez Zones (places to rez your vehicle) along the way.

Unfortunately, sim crossings still take much of the fun out of driving; once you finally get going, you’re tossed up into the air, underground, or into the water, before jarringly arriving on the road on the other side. Another hazard to watch out for is accidentally driving onto private land with super-speedy-object-return and having your vehicle zapped out from under you. DOH!

Be careful out there, folks!

Little Deuce Coup

I stopped for gas – and a quick selfie – on this lovely sim called West of the Rain. It’s not a large sim, but it’s extremely detailed and worth a visit!

My look was inspired by this fabulous leather jacket, which is the latest free group gift from BUENO. You can wear the jacket with or without the little shirt that says “Naughty is the New Nice” (which I think may be my mantra for 2017), and it comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies, as well as a “fitted” version.

I added the free Absence of Fear jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich (previously blogged by Love and Pru), and the Lacey Choker dollarbie gift from CHAIN. The choker is resizable and comes in both black and white (changeable via HUD).

SIDE NOTE: Since there was no Maitreya version included in the BUENO gift, I decided to switch over to my Slink Physique body. I had heard that Slink recently updated their mesh bodies, so I popped over to the store to pick up the new version. To be honest, I hadn’t worn my Slink body in a very long time because the HUD made me crazy, and I didn’t feel that there were enough alpha cuts, making the body difficult to wear with many designs. But I am happy to report that the updated body has many more alpha cuts, and the new HUD is split up into sections, no longer cramming everything onto one, crowded screen. If you own a Slink body, be sure to head over to a redelivery terminal at the in-world store to pick up the updated version. 🙂

 

On the road again...

Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Shoot, there’s my phone again. Probably Carson needing a ride. I’ll just let it go to voicemail.

I’ve been having such a blast driving my new Bentley Supersport! I picked it up as a free group gift at Sydney City, and I have to say that it is really well done, not to mention FUN!

Both doors and the trunk open and close, the headlights turn on and off, and the dashboard is nicely detailed. The engine makes a cool vroom vroom sound, the exhaust you see in the photo was not photoshopped, but actually comes out of the car when you drive! There are a ton of other options that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet, so be sure to click on the car to get the full menu. Note that the car weighs in at a hefty 69 LI, so you may not want to park it or use it as decor unless you have plenty of available land capacity.

My apologies to the lady people I ran over, and thank goodness the bus that hit me sustained more damage than I did. 😉

BTW, I’m pretty sure that Soylent Green is people.

Everything Has Its Wonders

Hazardous

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in therein to be content.” – Helen Keller.

Another dark exploration?

On my last sim hop in my post [Here] I explored a dark cafe. I failed to mention that while I was there snapping my pictures, there was a hospitable couple also there who chatted amicably with me — Mr. and Mrs. S.

The gentleman, Mr. S., asked to take my photo. I said sure. Later, to my surprise, a notice popped up in my Flickr feed that I had been tagged in a photo, and in case you are interested, the result of the mysterious Mr. S.’s photo can be found [Here]. I think it’s a rather flattering shot.

I was doing some skimming for group gifts and I came across an advertisement for em@il’s applier leggings. The style caught my eye and I wanted to put a look together. And long story short… I wanted something dark, because something in me was longing for the wonders of the darkness. Not in a negative way, but in the way one longs for silence before a band plays beautiful music. That’s how I ended up at Hazardous. (The sim you see in this post’s pictures.) It’s really a fabulous place to visit… but I don’t want to give away the secrets. You really must go there for yourself.

What do the leggings that inspired the look include?

The leggings are a FREE group gift from em@ail (the group is FREE to join) and there are quite a few very pretty past group gifts still out at em@il for you to check out while you are there picking up this one.

What you’ll be getting in the package: appliers for system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, TMP, Eve, Brazilia, Belleza, and KL. That’s a lot of versatility! You’re sure to find an applier for you!

Hazardous 2

Dangerous measures…

A girl has to have dangerous hair to go with dangerous curves (like those great leggings gave me). So when I saw the gift out at Sintiklia I made a beeline. Of course you better hurry too. Right now there are two ways to pick up this gift.

Want the Free to all hair?

If you want the Colors and Pastels version of this hair, you can pick it up as a free to all gift, no group required. Just pay 0L and it is yours. This is a limited time offer, and I hear that it will be gone by the time the week is out. Be sure to teleport to the shop and nab this one up from Sintiklia right away.

Want the fatpack?

You’ve got a little longer on this offer. If you join the group (the fee is 100L) you can pick up the fatpack (110 colors tint pack) … that’s a lot of hair… you can pick this hair up as a group gift. Keep in mind that it is a 4 in 1 hair. You get the rigged mesh back with 4 different bang options. It is also unisex. I’m including the vendor advertisement below to give you a better idea of what you are getting with this really terrific deal.

But put a bow on it.

I finished up my look with something a little softer. After all… I originally reminded you all that there is “wonder in darkness.” So I picked up the FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) at Baubles. This pretty pair of bow earrings that you can see in my close-up picture above is a nice touch to any outfit and comes with a color change hud with 4 metal options. Danger not included.

Until our next adventure! See you then.

Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Beautiful Free

Love BDR

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back. I’m not going to kid you, there are days when I seriously want to wear my hair like this, just in my face. Sometimes I think I might pull it off too. This sassy hairstyle by Love Hair is a FREE Lucky Board prize at the Sanarae event. You’ll need to join the Sanarae group to participate in the Lucky Boards, but don’t fret, the group is FREE to join. This LB prize includes the hairstyle shown in the ombre color shown as well as a blonde to bright red ombre color, not shown.

This cool casual one-piece is a FREE “tester” outfit available at Beautiful Dirty Rich. It is a wearable demo that allows you to test out the colors of the clothing at Beautiful Dirty Rich. They’ve begun a new “mix and match” system allowing customers to mix and match the colors of some of the newer outfits. This tester outfit gives everyone the ability to really see how the wide range of colors look once worn. I think this idea is really fantastic, and the outfit is really cute too! This FREE wearable demo comes with a fat pack of appliers in every color available. It also includes classic system layers in every color. The colors shown are white, grey, black, jet black, and red. There are so many ways I think this one-piece is truly wearable. I like it as-is, but it could easily be worn with a skirt or under some cute running shorts for an athletic look. There’s no need to join a group, just buy the Mix & Match Tester outfit located in the New Releases section of the Beautiful Dirty Rich store.

Lastly, the five static poses are not only a great way for me to show you some of the colors available with the tester outfit at BDR, they are great poses; especially when you consider they are just one linden. This pose pack from Exposeur is listed as their February 2016 group gift on the Marketplace and can be purchased for just one linden. The set includes all 5 static poses shown, and a mirrored version of each pose for a total of 10 poses.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Jacket Weather

Jacket Weather

Good morning! I stepped out for a stroll and realized it was jacket weather! Of course jacket weather is my favorite… because it means I get to break out my favorite jackets!

The good news is, that if you hop over to BYRNE right now, you can slap the subscribo for a FREE jacket of your very own! This great black and white jacket in its geometric design goes great over applier or system layer tops and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It went out to subscribo members the other day, so if you are already a subscriber, hopefully it is in your inventory. If not, just check the history on the subscriber to get this goodie!

There are two versions of the jacket in the gift. The black version I am showing you, which is mostly black with white highlighting… OR! A white version which is much more prominently white with black strips instead. So you are bound to find your fit and your favorite jacket. 😉
