Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Merry Yule, and all those Holiday happy things to each and every one of you! Thank you as always for being here. I hope your day is bright. Maybe it can be a little bit brighter with a few group gifts to splurge upon here in Second Life. Yesterday TRUTH sent out a new group gift hairstyle to their VIP group! Also, Beautiful Dirty Rich has out a free 500 linden gift card for their group members now through December 26th. I’ll let you know all about each of these fantastic fabulous gifts below. Enjoy!

TRUTH 

This pretty up-do is a free group gift given to the TRUTH VIP group. It has a style hud that allows you to style the hair with or without the tendrils in the front, with or without the hairbase, and a slightly more kempt or more wispy bun. The little fairy lights are also optional. This group gift from TRUTH is of course a fatpack as well, so you’ll get all the hair colors. There is a join fee of 350 linden to join the TRUTH VIP group. You’ll find this gift waiting in the notices.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

Beautiful Dirty Rich put out a generous 500 linden store gift card just in time for the Holidays. This free group gift can be picked up and used from now through December 26th. The B.D.R. group is required, you’ll need to wear the group tag when you click the gift vendor. The group is free to join, so all you need to take advantage of this sweet offer is open up a group slot. I managed to pick up 3 different items with my gift card, so if you are careful with your spending, 500 linden will go far!

Merry Christmas!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like….MORE GIFTS!  Everywhere you go!  Oh my goodness, FabFree.  There is so much going on on the grid right now that my eyes may be going criss-crossed.  Just when I think I’m getting through my list of things I want to show you, I have to add more to it!  I’m not complaining, I promise.  We’re so spoiled!

Miss Chic

I love Miss Chelsea‘s fashions with an undying passion.  They always are something that I know I *need* to have!  Every year around Christmastime, they spoil their group members with a lovely dress, which is always perfect for parties.  This year is no exception, and the Star Dress is just so sexy and slinky that I just don’t know what to do with myself.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours too!  To get your very own, join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the main desk of the store.  You’ll find lots of other gifts there too, making this group join quite worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Geometric Love

Alaskametro, another of my absolute faves has put out some sweet gifts for members of their group (which is 50L to join) underneath the Christmas tree in their store.  A fantastic array of Christmassy nail appliers with Maitreya and Omega appliers which just make me happy.  There are so many to choose from, I really don’t know which to put on first!  Though I usually do a really nice mix of them (which is an option on the HUD).  There’s also a skin (in several tones) and shape under the tree there for the new Lelutka Lilly head, which is free at this time (get your info on that HERE – you still have a few days!).

Group gift: "Xmas Geo" nail art appliers

No rest for the weary!

The Bright Side

The Bright Side

I’m in the process of looking on the bright side at the moment.  It may not look like it, because I’m sitting in the dark on a staircase.  But I find that those times are sometimes the best for finding the silver linings.  I’m happy that I don’t have to race around to stores at the moment, or that I don’t have to go to all the parties and gatherings that I’d rather avoid (you know, the awkward ones).  So really, even though this Holiday season is super different than ones we have lived in the past, I think we can still find a bit of joy hidden among all the madness.

Sparking Joy

One thing that has been super great about all this time spent at home is that there seems to be an overabundance of gifts inworld.  I really love it, not only because of all the freebies, but also because it shows that deep down we all care about each other.  I see these gifts as a little spark of care sent to us from designers all around the globe.  We’re all united, even when we’re apart!  Anyway, enough of my nattering.  I’ll get to the freebiesTres Chic has just started their newest round, and wouldn’t you know it?  There are free gifts for members of their free-to-join group!  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE Hair by No.Match in a pack of black hair hues.  The little Christmassy bow is also included!
  • FREE Dress by Catarsis sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Shoes by Ricielli sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Tres Chic is running until January 10th!  Put it on  your to-do list!

The Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat

Hello Fab Free, and Happy Weekend! I’ve got a quickie for you this Saturday morning that you’re going to love, so let’s get right to it. Jian has out the cutest Santa hats as group gifts. There are two versions, one with a puppy peeking out from under the hat, and the one I’m wearing with a kitten under the hat. Each hat has a touch menu with several color choices for the main part of the hat, and several fur textures for the kitten or puppy. Jian’s store group is free to join, and you can also still pick up their previous group gift.

Next up, I couldn’t resist sharing with you Cae’s Saturday Sale jewelry set. The beautifully detailed “Jingle” set includes pretty bow and jingle-bell earrings with a matching necklace. The set has a texture change hud with quite a few choices for the gemstones in the bow, and several metal options for the metal parts of the jewelry. At just 75 linden, you don’t want to miss this perfect for the holidays set at Cae.

That’s all for now, go get some!

Party Prep

Party Prep

When I get ready for a Christmassy-type shindig, I put on loud music, grab a drink and then find myself a really cute outfit.  I have always loved the simplicity of a chic pantsuit, but this one is not exactly what I would classify as simple.  It has all the bells and whistles I need for the biggest parties, while still being entirely comfy.  Let me give you all the details!

Queen of Queenz

I love when Queenz puts out a new group gift, because it’s always fabulous and different.  They are also great for all the curvy avatars out there, so if you have a hard time finding clothes that fit, you should really give Queenz a try.  By joining their free group, you gain access to a pile of great outfits, and the latest is the Outre pantsuit I’ve got on.  I enjoy the addition of the fluttery trim on the jacket.  The top and pants can be worn separately, so if you really fancy a skirt with the jacket, then you can totally make that happen too.  The HUD allows you to change the colour of the pants and the jacket separately as well.  Don’t forget to pick up the rest while you’re there!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Cheers!

In the Bright of the Day

In the Bright of Day

Sometimes I swear I am the embodiment of one of those memes you sometimes see where there’s a girly princess on one side and a broody goth type on the other, and it suggests that each is one side of the same person. I identify with that meme so darn much! So here we are, dark and broody, but loving the bright wintery holiday season. Speaking of the up-coming holiday, this feather trimmed little black dress is a free group gift at COCO that would be amazing for a swanky Christmas party. Also, if you’ve gone and picked up the free Lelutka Lilly head Aline blogged here, you might want to check out the 60L Happy Weekend Sale at head applier/bom layer at Eudora Beauty. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about both. After all, what better way to start the weekend than with a little retail therapy.

COCO

I love this dress by COCO. It’s simple, it’s elegant, and the feathered hemline is a welcome departure from the fur trim that is ever popular this time of year. It is also absolutely free with the COCO group tag. You can join the COCO store group for free, and pick up a few of the past group gifts as well if you haven’t already.

Sizes Included:  Maitreya (Lara/Petite), Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy

Eudora Beauty

Eudora Beauty has a gorgeous bom layer and Lelutka applier skin for the Lelutka Lilly gift head that you can get for just 60 linden per skin tone during the 60L Happy Weekend Sale this weekend only. The “Lillian” skin at Eudora Beauty is a head applier/bom layer only. You’ll need to purchase the body applier/layer separately. Which given the full price of skins, is still one heck of a deal! This skin will also work with any of the Lelutka Evolution heads. Also, I used the browless option that is included with this skin and wore one of the brow options included in the HUD for the Lelutka Lilly head.

It’s Cold Outside

Cold Outside

Sometimes I am pretty certain I enjoy the fantasy version of cold weather much more than the reality of cold weather. As a southern girl I find I am just not cut out for all that a white winter entails. Virtual winter however is an entirely different story. I love the beautiful winter settings and the ever falling snow. I also love the excuse to have an extensive winter wardrobe. Beautiful Dirty Rich has out this cozy cropped sweater group gift, and my earrings and necklace are a stunning jewelry set gift by Cae at FaMESHed. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details, along with the how and where to get these fabulous gifts.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

I’m a sucker for a pretty sweater. This cropped cable-knit sweater by Beautiful Dirty Rich is free for store group members. Right now the B.D.R. group is free to join. The sweater is their latest group gift, and there are several previous group gifts still available. This fuzzy little sweater comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 30 solid color choices. The hud will also allow you to custom tint the sweater. Honestly, it was hard to pick which color to wear!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink (Physique, Hourglass/Petite), MeshBody Legacy/Perky + Alpha Layer

Cae

There are tons of free gifts at FaMESHed this round. To get them, you’ll need to join the FaMESHed event group, which is free to join. That said, the earrings and necklace I am wearing are together the free gift by Cae at FaMESHed. I love the classic look of this jewelry set, and all of the customization options. The jewelry has resize scripts for easy fitting, and a color change hud with 6 metal choices, and 15 choices for the gemstones.

WOW… it’s the end of November… already! Winter is right around the corner. Of course, lot’s of us have already seen snow and cold temps so that corner is not far off.  With all this weather, I decided to do a one store indoors Hunt for the Blog today.

When I got the notice that LsR was doing a 15L in store Winter Hunt, I hollered at Aline, “Did you get this? Let’s go hunt, girl!” And we jumped right in! Cause great minds think alike! And we even ended up picking very similar outfits for some matchy matchy goodness.

I’m wearing the frilly little ‘Sexy Sannae’ dress. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of the ruffle on both the sleeves and the bodice. Be sure to wear your nice panties with this one, ladies cause it is a little cheeky. 😉

Aline picked out the ‘Sexy Yanika’ dress today. If you pick this one too, you’ll actually get three dresses for your 15L prize money. The dress comes in white, white with a polka dot print and a white lace pattern. Plus a HUD to change the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included for Both

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite *
  • SLink – Hourglass

* Yanika doesn’t include the Maitreya Petite size

The LsR Winter Hunt only runs until the 5th of December so hurry hurry and get your hunt on!
