WOH3 Goes to the Beach

Beach DayHello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
WOH
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty

Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.

Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.

Sizes Included: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!

Fishing is the reel deal.

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Feature! While I’m not much for fishing when it comes to real world leisure time, I’ve since discovered that this activity in Second Life can be quite addictive. Interesting and free prizes always prove to be a great motivation and this is especially true at Sn@tch, an awesome store that regularly holds fishing events where you can try your luck with catching full outfits and more! When I saw the advert for the current round I just couldn’t resist in indulging that festive feel once more, even with Halloween a week or so behind us. Trusty fishing rod and a bucket of bait in hand, I headed on over to Sn@tch to see what the prize filled waters had in store for me.

The results are in!

As it turned out I was pretty lucky and at the time of writing this, I’m only missing one piece of the Spooky Mix and Match ensemble that’s being offered for this round of fishing at Sn@tch. That single pair of system tights continues to elude me and while I’m determined to lure them out, let’s get into the details of what I did catch.

To the left is a sweatshirt and leggings combo that I’m sure to be wearing around the grid as the days get chillier. While I’m only wearing one of the sweatshirt options (Pumpkin) there are six other cozy tops available with seasonally appropriate prints for your choosing. All sweaters come in five standard sizes (XS-L) and have their own alpha layer. As for those quirky Skeleton Leggings, they come in a set of seven different eye-popping colors. As stated above there are classic pants layers available for these leggings but if you’re using a mesh body never fear as there is an Omega applier hud waiting to be fished out as well.

Speaking of pieces of clothing to be fished out, the boots that I’m wearing on the left is available in the prize package as well. You needn’t mesh feet to fit into these stompers as they come in five standard sizes (XS-XL) with a shoe base and alpha layer. This strappy pair are just perfect for stomping in puddles.

And when you’re done with your rough and tumble, change it up with something more whimsical. The Spooky Mix and Match prize also comes with a sparkly crop top (five standard sizes XS-XL) and a spidery full-length skirt (four standard sizes S-XL). Both pieces of clothing include an alpha layer in their respective folders to help with the fitting. I adore this combination for it’s lovely and well-textured glitter, it provides just the right amount of shimmer and shine for this outfit to be worn on those glitzy SL nights.

While we’re on the topic of effortless glam the last outfit in the Spooky Mix and Match prize package is the Undead Bodycon dress. You’ll be able to choose from five different colors for this form fitting number and it comes in five standard sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer. I think I’ll never get tired of dressing up as a spooky skeleton girl with this dress on. So to recap, the Spooky Mix and Match fishing prize at Sn@tch contains twenty-four pieces which are one pair of boots, one full-length skirt, one crop top, five bodycon dresses, seven sweaters and seven leggings. A casual fishing rod costs 100L and can be purchased at Sn@tch or on Marketplace but its a great investiment as you can fish to your heart’s content.

Sprinkle in those little extras.

If you’re looking to expand your hair collection, GeMyles Couture is offering four mesh hairstyles in different colors for free on their Lucky Letter boards. You don’t need a group tag to participate and the letters change out fairly quickly. I managed to grab all three hairstyles in the picture above in under an hour or so but they are frankly, worth the wait. Coming in different lengths and styles, they prove to be the perfect quality topper (literally!) to any outfit.

You might also notice that I’m wearing a different pair of shoes for the picture on the right. These are a Halloween Gift that’s available at the ChicChica Mainstore for free (just find it at the base of the staircase) These shoes are made for the Slink High, Maitreya and Belleza mesh feet. I just can’t get over the beautiful bow and vivid orange and purple coloring.

It’s also worth a mention that the poses I’m using in the pictures are the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by One Creations. Since becoming a blogger I’ve realized I need a wide diversity of poses and am glad that to have discovered One Creations and their fluid poses. The store is currently part of the Menstuff Hunt so if you know a guy looking to add to his pose collection, go and do some hunting! (Psst the prize is 1L) For more information on the FabFree group gift, it was blogged fantastically {HERE} by Kathryn.

Holding on to Summer

Coming soon to FabFree!
While many parts of the world are starting to embrace fall, we here are stubbornly clinging to summer temperatures.  And that is okay, because it is giving me the perfect excuse to wear this beautiful sundress FabFree group gift from Snowpaws.  The package includes 10 mesh sizes for just the right fit.
Coming soon to FabFree!

ChicChica currently has a jeweled headband as a free gift.  Its wonderfully made with lots of detail.  I tried it on with a few dozen hair styles (I have a bit of a hair addiction problem!) and it looked great with just about every one.

Let’s Have an Adventure

Adventure

Have an adventure Fab Free! At the very least, a shopping spree. That’s what you’ll feel like after you see the room full of group gifts at Lavain&Co. Yes, you read that right, there is a gift room and the number of gifts is honestly almost overwhelming! One of the several items I picked up for myself at the Lavain&Co. women’s gift room is this sleek stylish one-piece suit. This is the sort of sophisticated look that never goes out of style. The gift is called “Big in Japan” and it includes several standard mesh sizes, as well as alpha layers. This means it’s suitable for mesh and classic avatars. That said, the Lavain&Co. VIP group does have a hefty one-time join fee of 499 lindens. However, if you like the chic style, the fee is well worth the instant access to the abundance of group gifts.

Speaking of chic style, these cute blue pumps from ChicChica are a FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The shoes are a pretty dark blue with a lace-like overlay pattern, and they come in Slink high and a Maitreya fit. To get these great shoes by ChicChica for yourself, just join the Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group and click the gift vendor. Don’t wait, they’ll be gone as soon as the current round of Cosmo Sales Room ends. The Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group is also FREE to join.

Lastly, to add a little something extra to this already pretty outfit, I put on the Steam Hunt gift from Hudson’s. This FREE hunt prize is a simple yet elegant pair of detailed nautical themed pendants on a thin black cord. This FREE necklace comes in a short and a long version, and both can be re-sized. Even with the somewhat floral and lace patterns present in the clothing and shoes, I think the blue lends it’s self to the nautical aspect of the necklace. If you like the necklace it’s well worth the effort of hunting it down at the Hudson’s main location.
