A Dust of Snow

A Dust of Snow

 

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As a light dusting of snow sprinkled down from the sky, Ripley and I traveled to the North sim for a late afternoon stroll.  The only sounds that broke the winter silence were the crunch of our footsteps and the faint rustle of branches stirred by the breeze.  Although it was chilly, I was all wrapped up in a full length cardigan that we discovered as a free gift in the Women Only Hunt 4.

A Hug That Lasts All Day

As we walked, the thick knit of this Weirdo Duster from Oubliette nestled around me, keeping me cozy and warm.  It features a built in crop top, extra long sleeves, and slits in the side for easy walking.  It offered protection from the elements, and also provided a sexy glimpse of skin.  I knew I could always pull the edges closed if need be, but thanks to the magic of SL, I was totally comfortable, bare tummy and all!  Inside the gift box, I found versions for multiple mesh bodies, as well as an infinity scarf that I chose not to wear in my photo because my hair already had a scarf built in.  Since the Women Only Hunt 4 prizes are completely free, I scooped up this woolen wonder for a song!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Holiday Tacos

Tacos Tequila
Oh Hello There; Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! There are quite a few things that are kind of part of the local culture where I am from. This outfit embodies two of them. For starters, most people have a deep love for tacos. I’m not sure if it is our proximity to Mexico or if the tacos are just that super fantastic, but tacos are serious business out here. Secondly, you could actually wear a long sleeveless top and a scarf in December and be warm enough in the afternoon. You thought I was going to say something about tequila didn’t you?!

Get Lucky at Petite Mort

Okay so tequila isn’t so bad either, and it does go quite well with tacos, but that is not the point. This fun loose tank top is one of many Lucky Letter board prizes at Petite Mort. It comes in several mesh sizes, and in my opinion is well worth the effort. The Petite Mort group tag is required for the Lucky Letter boards. There is a one time join fee of 75 linden at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara (2 sizes)

Also, just in case you missed them, Love blogged a few of the other Lucky Letter board gifts at Petite Mort in her posts “Seeing Sepia… Roses” and “Can’t Stop! Too Many Sales!.

Keep Warm at Clawtooth

Clawtooth recently set out this wispy long hairstyle out as a FREE gift. There is no need to join a group, just pay the gift vendor 0 linden. The knit scarf is part of the hairstyle  Along with the hairstyle you’ll get a color change hud for the scarf, and an “Essentials” hair color pack. Needless to say this awesome Clawtooth FREEbie is a must have.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Another Flower Child

Flower Child

Happy weekend, fabulous readers (or, what’s left of it, anyway)!

I think Kathryn and I were on the same Bohemian wavelength, with both of us choosing casual denim and flowers in our hair! My dog, Finn, has been off chasing birds somewhere… hopefully she hasn’t caused any damage while I was taking a nap in my van. 🙄

Causal in Denim

My summery, denim dress is just the latest group gift from Maci. It sports a sexy, tied halter back, quite a bit of cleavage, and is sized to fit the following:

  • Classic mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya (regular and autohide)
  • Slink
  • TMP

My necklace is the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer. It comes in 3 style combinations with 10 different colors for the stones. Click on the necklace to bring up a menu for changing the texture or resizing.

Ah well… naptime is over. Until next time!

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

It’s Always Sunny in Second Life

Sunny in SLHave Pool Will Travel 

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad it’s the weekend. I plan to spend the whole weekend in this cute little inflatable pool. This fun Marketplace Freebie is wearable and animated, so you can lounge in the pool any time any place! The pool’s creator is June Trenkins of JT, and she thoughtfully included the beach ball, and butterfly in this animated item.  Get your copy of this fun FREE wading pool on the Marketplace.

Always Sunny

Good Day Sunshine

I suppose you could wear whatever you wanted or nothing at all if you’re so inclined to wade in the pool. I decided to take advantage of the most recent Fab Free Group Gift at Brandy’s Boutique and relax in style! This applier bikini includes classic system layers, and a flexy add on for the bikini top (not shown). You can pick up this FREE Fab Free exclusive gift by wearing your Fab Free group tag and heading over to Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll find the Fab Free gift vendor on the wall opposite the circulation desk. Pay the gift vendor 1 linden then you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden and your gift will be delivered.

Appliers included:

  • Belleza
  • Lena
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Show Some Skin

One of the best things about a bikini for a tattoo lover like myself is the ability to show off your tattoos! I picked up this beautiful full body tattoo on the Marketplace from a shop called Natti for just 50 lindens. The tattoo includes appliers and classic tattoo layers in 4 tones. These mandala/paisley type shapes and swirls always make me think of summer!

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega

Summer Hair 

Earlier today Clawtooth put out this FREE gift for everyone as an April Fools gift, with no fooling. This cute swing bob hairstyle comes with the magic tones color change hud.

The Real Teal

Tickle Me Teal
Hello There Fab Free! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. Mine has been busy, but in a positive way. I also had a lot of fun putting this unique look together. It’s always fun to style something outside the usual, and as I am sure I’ve said a thousand times and don’t mind saying again, I love mixing elements of fantasy style with modern fashion. That said, one of the shops in Second Life that you can truly count on for unique beautiful skins is Stix.

Tickled Teal 

Stix has put out a huge group gift skin pack out as their March/April group gift. The gift includes the above pictured version of their Vera skin in 4 fantasy skin-tones. Each tone has appliers for mesh bodies, ears, heads all sorts of things included , which is one more reason this FREE group gift is so fabulous. There’s also a classic system version of each skin in the package. The Stix group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to claim your gift.

Perfectly Polished

Another shop known for stellar fantasy style is Plastik. Just this weekend Plastik placed out a gorgeous nail applier set for just 5 linden. I believe this is a group only purchase, but I may be wrong. Either way, the Plastik group is FREE to join, so the cost of the applier set remains the same. The set includes 10 polish options, each in this bright beautiful shade of blue, some are glittery, some are metallic. You really have to see them to appreciate how pretty the polish is. Included in this 5 linden purchase are appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails.

Teal Me No Lies
Teal Me No Lies

Finally, for this post anyhow, I also picked up the latest FREE group gift at Enertia. This cozy sweater dress is actually quite sexy on. It’s a halter style dress with low sides and an even lower back. If you’re at all modest, this may not be the dress for you as it shows a little side-boob and a generous amount of bum cleavage. I think it’s quite fun and playful. This is Second Life after all, so why not be a little more daring now and then. The dress comes in several body specific mesh sizes, including all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, Maitreya, and another called Werewolf that I’m honestly not familiar with. Also there is a color change hud that allows you to pick from 12 different colors. Still not convinced you want to wear something so revealing? I think the dress would be just as cute with applier jeans and an applier crop top underneath. The Enertia group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Can I make a connection?

Can I make a connection?

Another bright and sunny day

Well, it looks like the weather’s perfect for Valentine’s and while Commander’s distracted with chasing butterflies, I decided that it would be a good time to sneak in some headshot practice. If you’ve been following Love’s blog posts (here and here) recently, you’ll have been clued in about the Alaskametro hunt going on right now at Free Dove. It’s not a hunt to pass up on (Free Dove also runs two more free hunts concurrently at their location) but needless to say, I got wholly distracted by all the other free goodies that you can find there as soon as I teleported in. One of these is the Serenity skin by Alaskametro. I was immediately intrigued by this (as I always am when encountering new to me skin brands) and a look at the box told me that the skin gift package would include:

  • One classic avatar skin
  • Lipstick and Eyeshadow classic tattoo layers (worn in picture)
  • Omega skin appliers for mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system
  • Omega applier for both lipstick and eyeshadow
  • One shape

Snapping up the gift and taking a peek inside also lead me to discover that you’ll receive a bald base and eyebrow shaper as well. I’ve tried Alaskametro’s makeup and clothing in the past and the Serenity skin certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of quality. The subtle tones of the makeup provided go really well with such a sweet face and I do adore the light dusting of freckles that Serenity has. It’s certainly a skin to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Speaking of Hunts

There’s another one I’ve just started call the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. It promises to be fun though I hope I don’t get shot by any arrows in the process. One of the stops on the hunting path is Kingswood and they’re offering the Be My Valentine USB necklace as their hunt prize. This adorable and quirky necklace has an inbuilt resizer script for easier fitting and permissions are set to copy if (like me) you’d like to make backups before embarking on any modifications. I love how well detailed this necklace is, from the symbols on the USB to the little heart charm to the tag that reads Be My Valentine, it almost makes me wish I had this necklace in real life as I’m always loosing my USB drives (there’s probably a black hole in my purse or something). The Stupid Cupid Hunt runs from the 3rd of February to the 28th and prizes for the hunt are set to 1L.

Get to the Sale

What’s a holiday without scampering about to a sale? If you love getting more great quality hairstyles for your inventory, Clawtooth is holding a 25% off sale for all hair packs (gachas excluded) from the 13th to 15th February (not much time so hurry down). I’m wearing the Hang It Up hairdo in the picture which is an older style but I’ve had my eye on it for a while and thought that this was a good time to snap it up!

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Valentine’s Day! I got myself saddled with a blind date (pfft) and do you think I should bring Commander along? Some girls carry pepper spray others bring animals that could potentially maul you. Decisions…decisions.

Heart! Triangulate and Listen

Not Today SLHello Fab Free’rs! I feel like it’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed sharing with you. Like some of the other bloggers I’ve been feeling a little blah recently, and perhaps a little restless. I think it’s this strange weather we have been experiencing out here in the southern United States. I also think I read something about Mercury being in retrograde. While I’m not sure exactly what that entails, I always see it associated with mental, physical, and emotional shenanigans. Even Second Life seems to be misbehaving more than usual. Whatever the reason, I hope things settle down soon for all of us! That said, I fell back on an old saying “look better, feel better” and picked out an outfit full of fun bright colors in effort to counteract all the blahs in both worlds.

TriangulateMaxi Gossamer – Sugar Heart Necklace

 The proverbial icing on the cake that is this wildly colorful outfit is the FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. This heart pendant necklace comes equipped with a detailed touch menu so you can customize the size and color of your necklace. Also included is a longer version of the necklace. Pru tried it on, and the long version hung down to her navel. It made me think of those long necklaces you’d wear with a sweater. The Maxi Gossamer group is FREE to join. To get your own copy of this FREE gift, just head to the Maxi Gossamer main store and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Eclectic Stars – Shimmy – Triangulate

If these pants don’t cheer you up, I’m afraid nothing will. They are a unique design from Eclectic Stars in an exclusive pattern especially for Fab Free group members. That’s right, these colorful pants are the most recent Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars. This generous gift includes specific sizes for Maitreya Lara, all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, and TMP. Additionally there are fitmesh and standard mesh sizes included. To get this FREE gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join, and click the gift vendor at Eclectic Stars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
