Step inside and come closer

Step inside and come closer

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”

Have a seat.

The cushions are comfortable, there’s sushi on the table if you’re so inclined and please, don’t mind the knife…  -ahem- Seeing as it is the haunting season, I couldn’t help but try to be just a little bit creepy. In all seriousness, though, I do have some treats for you today dear readers and if you’re ready to let’s go! First up is the brand new Fabulously Free in SL group gift by M0oH! Now, this store has long been on my bucket list of places to visit thanks to all the wonderful posts by Love, one such example {HERE}, and a free group gift proved to be a strong lure. As soon as I saw the notice I hurried down to the main store to get my grab on and I was not disappointed.

So what are the details?

The gift, dubbed the Thea Outfit, comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) for both the cropped sweater and the skirt. You’ll also receive not one but three alpha layers to help you with the fitting, one for the top and skirt combined and the other two for each piece of clothing respectively. What I find really great about this outfit, aside from the fact that it’s very well made and that the way it’s textured is to die for, is that you’re given the option to keep the outfit intact or to wear it as separates. Just thinking of experimenting with different combinations gives me joy and more so when you take into consideration the fact that this outfit is completely free. All you have to do is activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag! Not in the group yet? Well, copy and paste the following link into the local chat inworld;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about then click on the link and there you go!

If you want to know more about MO0H! and the great store credit program that they have going on at the store, visit some of Love’s blog posts for more information:

More treats!

Hmm…lets go from the top down, shall we? The bat headband that I’m wearing in the picture is the newest group gift by C’est La Vie. Not only is it adorable and a great fit for the festive season, it comes with a pose and resize scripts as well, making it easy to edit. What’s more, permission is set to copy so you can make backups before you embark on any editing.  The C’est La Vie group is free to join and you can pick up other group gifts while you’re there scooping up this one as well.

Do you love advent calendars? I’m certainly looking forward to Christmas time but Alice Project is giving you a little taste early. As part of their Halloween Massacre Special, you’ll be able to get one free hairstyle in fifteen special colors from the 25th to the 31st of this month. These gleefully macabre blood streaked hairstyles change out daily but don’t worry if you’ve missed one as you’ll be able to buy hair packs consisting of 5 tones for 50L if you want to complete your collection.

And ah yes, footwear. I’ve always had a weakness for quirkiness and boots and this pair from Wicked satisfies both those fancies. The Quinn heels (made for Slink high feet only) feature a wonderfully detailed lace up front and skull patterns so that you’ll stay in step with the season. Go to the Wicked store and hunt out a skeletal hand  for just 1L or just buy the pair for 25L from the shopper’s option that has been set out. The shopper’s option prim is also a skeletal hand that’s placed near the hunt poster. The Jeepers Creepers hunt runs until the 31st of October.

Step in and come closer

Oh, but I’m not done yet!

Head on down to Trick or Treat Lane to peruse the variety of seasonal goodies from a number of merchants. While you’re there, don’t forget to snap up the free gift that the majority of these awesome designers have set out and you’ll find yourself with a bag full of accessories, furniture, and even skin! The one I’m wearing in the pictures above is called Berry, a gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins that comes in the skin tone Dust. In the package, you’ll receive the system skin with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Slink hand and feet appliers and Omega body appliers also with cleavage/no cleavage options. Between this and the Klaasje fantasy skin blogged {Here} also from 7 Deadly s{K}ins I might just go drow permanently. The Trick or Treat Lane event though lasts until the 1st of November.

Windows to the soul…

To complete the look are the Hazelnut eyes from Out of Orbit. I tend to go for blue or grey eyes so this was a nice and free change up. These eyes are part of the EnMashed in Fall hunt and aside from the system eyes, you’ll also receive mesh ones with an alpha layer and Huds for Genesis Heads and Heads that use the Omega system. Find the bat that’s hiding in the store and buy for 0L. The EnMashed in Fall hunt is running until the 15th of November.

Ready? Pose!

New types of hunts and games are always something that I look out for and the Hocus Pocus event that is running until the 4th of November was something that caught my attention. You’ll need to go to a participating merchant for the Hud, Elephante Poses is one such merchant, and once you get the teleport list visit the stores to find a magic bottle. Once found say hocus pocus in local chat (game is case sensitive so remember all small letters) and depending on your luck and some magic you may get the item for free. If you’re not so lucky (you’ll get one chance per 24 hours) but still fancy the prize, you can buy it for 50L. That’s what happened to me for this Psycho pose set from Elephante but since I do love the poses from this store and was so tickled by the little prop knife that’s included with the set I got it anyway.

And that wraps it up. So many events going on this season and more besides…what are you still doing here? -Brandishes knife- Off you go.

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
 For who goes up your winding stair
     -can ne’er come down again.”

C’est la Monday

C'est la Monday

Hello Fab Free, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a serious Monday! Thankfully, there’s always some retail therapy available in Second Life. I think it’s definitely true that shopping is a form of therapy, even in a virtual setting. I know I feel better when I get to buy new things. hehehe That being said, it’s always better when the stuff you acquire is FREE. **Note Added 1/19/15**Here’s more proof this was a total case of the Monday’s! Somehow I missed that our lovely Julianna had already shown this great jacket, be sure to check out her post here also.  
C'est la Monday 1 This pretty leather jacket from Virtual Diva Couture is their current group gift. I love the sort of dark mauve color of the leather, I think it make the jacket very feminine, while keeping an edgy style. The gift is FREE, you just need to join the Virtual Diva Couture in world group, which is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and a fitted mesh version.

Another super cute group gift are these pretty star hairpins. This gift from C’est la Vie includes several hairpins in gold and two silver versions, each with a different colored star. I really like this gift because cute hair accessories are not something you see often. The gift is FREE to all C’est la Vie group members, and the group is FREE to join as well.

Here’s to a better Monday, Enjoy!

Pretty in Pastel

Snapshot_001

Good evening Fabulous readers and Happy Monday!  Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean you have to put away all of your lighter coloured fashion!  I know I usually gravitate towards warmer hues for fashion this time of year, but I managed to find a couple things to put together my sweet snuggly warm pastel look today.

Check out this adorable pink Frill Top I found on a group lucky board at S@bbia!  You do need to join the group to take advantage of this offer, however the group is free to join, so no biggie, right?

My Heart Glasses are a new free subscribe gift at C’est La Vie that you can obtain by becoming a new subscriber.  If you are already in the subscribomatic and missed this gift, simply unsub and resub to have the gift auto sent to you.  These glasses also come with a texture change hud!

Flowers on Friday

Snapshot_013Happy Friday everyone!!   Yep… I have two posts for you today.  Mostly because the first one was supposed to go up yesterday alas I didn’t get it done in time, and also because I wanted to share some exclusive to today news!

If you haven’t checked the Fifty Linden Friday list yet, you really should!  The list this week is killer :)   If you are not familiar with Fifty Linden Friday, it is a weekly event that happens every Friday in which 10 or so rotating shops offer one or two items each at 50L for the day located at their respective mainstores.  In my photo I am displaying the following participating items:

  •  Glam Affair:  Glam Affair is offering two skins today for just 50L.  The skin I am in today, which is Summer V3 (Jamaica) and an additional skin called Katra Polar August.  These skins come with several different eyebrow and eyebrow shaper options.
  •  C’est La Vie:  The Serry Bag is available, complete with a texture change hud so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.
  •  Fri.Day:  You’ll find the Effy Sandals on sale for 50L today, and as a bonus you’ll get them in not just one colour but two (steel as shown and dust).
  •  Elikatira:  The Elodie mesh hairstyle is available today for FLF, including the exclusives colour hud which allows for tons of shade variety.

You can find a complete listing in the Fifty Linden Friday inworld group which you can join by hitting the FLF sign at any of the four participating shops I have mentioned today.  It’s free to join, and then you’ll get the future week’s offerings via notice🙂.

If these 50L delights were not news enough for you, you will be happy to hear that my Haler Loose Dress is available as a free group gift along with a wide variety of other gifts at Black Rose!

Have a great weekend!

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!

The Heat Wave Event: Battle Fairy

Snapshot_011Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :)  Today I am excited to show you this spicy summer outfit that I put together for just 20L – including the hair!

In the past notices of the Burley Republic inworld group – (which is the official group for Taketomi and is free to join), you will find a free gift sent out on 5/25 that includes a male and female hair in a ton of colours.  The female gift is MeiLing and it comes with texture change hair accessories too.    (Copy & paste this text into local chat – secondlife:///app/group/3beca388-cdae-2c74-fffe-bb3a50c247bb/about )

(Please note that the headband is not included with the hair.  I picked this C’est La Vie Native Headband at a previous event as a gift.)

The outfit I am wearing today is called Loose Fitting Set 2 and can be found on the Battle Fairy display at The Wash Heat Wave Event.  For just 10L you get the pants and the top! This set is also available in green/purple for the same price.  My Sunflower Summer Sandals by Battle Fairy (for Slink Mid Feed) can also be found at The Heatwave for 10L.  In fact,  there are 5 different prints for just 10L.

As you can see from the display photo below, there are five pairs of sandals, four summer outfits, and unisex boots available for 10L, and Battle Fairy’s 50L feature is the Dirty Feet Maitreya Applier.

Silke Smooth

Snapshot_002

Hello everyone :)  For those of you that have jumped on the Lelutka mesh head bandwagon like I have, there is a Lelutka mesh head makeup applier at The Chapter Four as a free group gift throughout this round by The Skinnery!  I am wearing the Silke Lipstick and Eyeshadow applier over my Glam Affair Karin skin. These appliers allow you to wear the eyeshadow and/ or the lips so you can choose just one – or both at the same time.  It is a fantastically free way to add some diversity to your new mesh face!

The cute Manon Ring I am displaying is the free group gift by C’est La Vie at The Chapter Four.  This free group gift comes in a bunch of colours so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.

We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….
