The Good Witch of the North

The Witch of the North
Hello There Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in my last post, Sanarae is celebrating their Second Anniversary this round. The event will last about two more weeks, so if you haven’t been by yet you’ve still got a little time. In celebration of Sanarae’s birthday, each of the participating vendors has at least one FREE birthday gift. The gifts do require the Sanarae group tag, however the group is FREE to join. I put this look together while going through the gifts I collected. I love the way these items came together, it’s a complete departure from the look in my previous post. With that in mind, I’ve decided to call this The Good Witch of the North. I hope you like it!

Pearls for Your Hair

The pretty pearl tiara is the Sanarae birthday gift from Letituier. This beautifully detailed FREE gift can be sized via touch menu. To get your copy stop by the Letituier booth at Sanarae and click the birthday cake while wearing your Sanarae group tag.

Pearls for Your Throat

I love how well the tiara from Letituier looks with this choker from Shanghai. This is another FREE Sanarae birthday gift you won’t want to miss. Along with the white pearl version shown, the gift includes the following color versions: black, jade, orange, pink, and nude. This choker can also be resized via touch menu.

Shimmer for Your Eyes

Next up, the shimmery eye shadow Pru has on is the Sanarae birthday gift from Zibska. This FREE makeup applier gift has several color options. I think I’ll be using this often, there’s a color to match just about anything. Don’t forget to join the FREE Sanarae event group before clicking the birthday cake at the Zibska booth to get this gift.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka, Omega

Sparkles for Your Wrists

These pretty bangles are the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from OXIDE. The delicate looking bracelets come with a color change hud so you can choose between 5 metal colors and 8 gemstone colors. The hud also allows you to resize, pose, and delete scripts. Like all the gifts at Sanarae, this one will require the Sanarae group tag.

A Little Bit of Lace

Lastly, the delicate lace camisole top is the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from Milk Tea. This sheer white top with delicate blue flowers was just too pretty to not share. If you want to wear it but have it appear a bit less see-through, wear the top on multiple layers. This gift is an Omega applier only.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Limit8 but not Limited

Deer me... 1

Limit8 is a new-to-me event though it’s obviously been around a while because this month is its anniversary round with free gifts! If you join the Limit8 group (free to join) you can pick up gifts at each of the booths!

A new dress

I stopped by the Ella booth and picked up a new free dress. It only comes in a Maitreya fit, but you get two colors: Military (shown) and floral (not shown). Both are very pretty.

Shoes too!

Stop by the Dirty Princess booth for new free heels. These Darling Princess Heels in black come with gold details and you’ll get them to fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The bracelets…

I added these chevron bracelets by Bubble which were also a free gift at Limit8. Just stop by the Bubble booth to pick them up.

Deer me... 2

One last touch

I couldn’t resist adding one last touch to my outfit. I adore this free little deer bauble choker necklace by Burial. It is delicate and simple and yet very detailed. It’s simply stunning and my favorite part of this outfit. I had to show it off! Be sure to stop by the event to pick up this free giveaway!

Eclipse

Eclipse_001

I was in the path of the Solar Eclipse yesterday, and was lucky enough to have a chance to view it because my local library had a viewing event and was providing free eclipse glasses for individuals to check out for 15 minute intervals. By lucky chance, I was able to check out my 15 minutes at the peak of the eclipse and see it in all its glory. It was an amazing sight!

A few creators have made gifts that seem to commemorate the event and it seemed appropriate to show them off!

Mandala…

Kib Designs is giving away a free Mandala dress (the group is free to join) if you stop by their main-store. The Mandala has come to represent or be a general generic term for any diagram, chart, or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos… a microcosm of the universe. It seems an appropriate and beautiful gift at the moment given the impact of the solar eclipse on so many people as they rushed to get to see it.

Dress sizes available:

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

Eclipse_002

August Eclipse 2017

Chop Zuey was not to be outdone as far as gifts, and the creator has made a special texture change set of jewelry, specifically to commemorate the event, called “August Eclipse.”

There are two gifts… the diadem is a free to all gift and is fully customizable and texture change. You can pick it up in the free to all gift section by buying it for 0L.

There is also a Chop Zuey group gift, which is the jewelry set, in the group gift section. This set includes the choker, earrings, and bracelets, all texture change just like the diadem. The group is 350L to join, but Chop Zuey sets out frequent gifts for both men and women, making the group well worth joining.

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Train Station_002

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Kiss Me Maybe

Free Kisses Maybe_002

I was exploring The Wash sim after doing my shopping… checking out the carnival and I found a kissing booth and couldn’t resist checking it out. The pose puts you in position inside with your hands sort of over your mouth as if to say “no kisses today!” which I found amusing, but fitting because I was wearing a cute pair of “Kiss me” hawt pants from Roped Passion’s that had other ideas in mind!

Check it out!

You’ll want these hawt pants for yourself. I’ve included a picture of the front and the back, just so you can see how cute they are! I may not be handing out kisses at the kissing booth… but these hawt pants have their own ideas! And they were only 10L at the Roped Passion’s Cart at the Cart Wash Sale!

6 Pants Choices:

  • All you can eat Hawt Pants
  • Binge Watching Hawt Pants
  • In Case of Emergency Hawt Pants
  • Kiss This Hawt Pants (shown)
  • Slippery When Wet Hawt Pants
  • Spank Itself Hawt Pants

Sizes available for each:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Add a splash of color!

I wanted to add some color (and Pride) to my outfit and stopped by the Luminesse Cart to pick up the rainbow bracelets you see in my pictures. These too are only 10L and are resizeable too! I think they are a perfect addition to my outfit and highlight something that is important to me, so I was happy to find them at the Luminesse cart among the other pretty baubles! Pick up your Pride and show it off today! Of course if you just like rainbows that works too 😉

Stood Up

Waiting_001

Stood up.

He said we had a date, and I was all decked out. Dressed to the nines. Fit to kill. You know how it goes. You find just the gown at ALB that can’t be passed up, especially since it’s free. I opted out of the full skirt and kept it simple, going only for the slinky white part with the draping back and the low cut neckline and then I waited at the door but he never showed up. It’s a good thing the dress didn’t cost me anything… or I might have more in the way of revenge than just petty aggravation on my mind.

Of course if you have an upcoming date, you can get this dress too… and it comes in all the right sizes: fitmesh XS – XL as well as Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

Waiting_002

Pairing things up.

I had a flair for dramatics. (So does he… I’m sure he’ll have some excuse.) So I added this jewelry from Lazuri to my dress. It’s the current group gift out. I’m showing you the necklace and cuff bracelets, but there were also rings and earrings too. They are even color change, with a choice of silver or gold metal and an ability to change the color of the pearls as well. Lazuri frequently sets out large sets of color change gifts, so though the group fee is 250L, it means a lot of jewelry for your group fee.

I wonder if he’ll show up late to pay the ticket for the bottle of wine I ordered…

Entice Me, Baby. I’m the Real Thing.

Snapshot_001

The Cart Sale has begun!

As Love mentioned here, the biannual Cart Wash Sale began yesterday, and that means fabulous 10L and under goodies for shoppers like you and me!

Entice me, Baby!

I stopped by the Entice Cart and right away I fell in love with the “Get Busy Dress” in red. It comes with a hud with three texture options (all various red versions) and standard mesh sizes with an excellent alpha layer. There is an optional chain belt which I chose to don for my picture so you could see it. It is separate, however, so you can wear the dress without it.

The finishing details!

This dress from the Entice Cart is pretty all on its own, but a few finishing details never hurt anyone right? Especially if they are classy and well made! My gorgeous red pearl set from Real Evil Industries is an older gift but it is so well made you would never know it. It is FREE from the Marketplace. Just drop it into your Marketplace Cart and you are well on your way to enjoying the spoils!

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Touch Not Da Boobies!

I love different looking things and this outfit by Rowena is indeed different. It reminds me of a protective garment with these beautiful spikes. It says “Hey – stay away from my beauties!”. I find that Rowena is a versatile designer and has a nice collection of outfits for sale at her shop(s). Many of the items are available as gifts and Midnight Mania prizes. Her group is FREE to join.

I have included 3 pictures below, one with a closeup of the corset.
