It’s a world where the dog eats the dog

It's a world where the dog eats the dog

If you know what my title is from and/or why I chose it, then we should be best friends. Nerd alert – I love me some Les Mis. But that has nothing to do with what’s going on here today, so let’s move on. I found a couple of really great free gifts that I wanted to show you. And the best part is that they will cost you exactly nothing!

First the top!

My super cute top is by WellMade. It’s another free group gift that I got by joining the free group! I say “another” because there are bunches of gifts in the store. Undoubtedly you’ve seen the store name pop up time and again if you spend any time here on FabFree. This newest gift is a great t-shirt that’s tied in the front. It comes with a HUD with 4 color/pattern options and sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya (and Maitreya V2, whatever that means)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Then the bottom…I mean, boots

My new WellMade shirt and these great thigh high boots just begged to be worn together. So I was like, okay. To get the boots you’ll just need to pop over to Moda. There is no group join required, they are just there in the store for free. Doesn’t get much simpler than that! They come in various colors – three shades of denim, floral, and 2 animal prints. The sizes are Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass.

Life’s been good to me so far

Life's been good to me so far

Happy Saturday, FabFree! I was wandering around The Darkness event recently and came across gifts! Isn’t that the best? There are 3 boxes set out in front of Adris King’s booth and each one is only 10L. I was distracted by all of the pretty tattoos around me (seriously, I might need a tattoo intervention) and just grabbed one as I walked by. I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked it later.

This dress is really cute! I love the silver specks in the texture and it’s got these sexy cut outs on either side – I tried to give you a bit of a side angle so you could see what I’m talking about. It’s just a really great little black dress that I’m pleased to have added to my inventory. The sizes are:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • 5 classic sizes, XL-XS
  • 5 fitmesh sizes XL-XS

I totes need to go back and see what’s in the other two 10L boxes! And maybe buy a tattoo from one of the other shops while I’m there…

Don’t let the days go by

Don't let the days go by

I can’t even think of any car terms off the top of my head to throw out and pretend I’m doing something to this shiny red car in front of me. Lame. But let’s skip all that and cut to the chase. No reason to be coy, right? My butt looks fantastic in these shorts. And even better? Yours will too!

Just 1L!

I grabbed this outfit by N-Uno on the marketplace for 1L! I realize I’m not showing most of it, but here’s the marketplace link so you can see the vendor ad for yourself. The shirt and shorts are separate pieces and they each come in 5 sizes, L-XXS. The outfit comes in the color I’m showing as well as a bunch of others. All for 1 silly little L!

Fifty Linden Friday!

I love a good pair of boots. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from paper arrow for Fifty Linden Friday. There was this pair and another darker shade for 50L each. Do I even need to say that I bought both? Yeah, ’cause I bought both… Each pair comes sized for Maitreya and Slink.

There are lots of other great things available for FLF as well. And don’t forget that the Saturday sale is tomorrow!

I got that red lip classic thing that you like

I got that red lip classic thing that you like

It’s possible that I’ve had this post title in my head for a while and was just looking for the right outfit to use it for. And here it is! A classic dress and some great red lipstick!

LIVIA

I don’t wear makeup a lot in Second Life, but a girl’s gotta have a few really great bright red lipstick shades handy. You never know when you’ll need them. This new pack by LIVIA is perfect for that. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. There are 6 shades included, 2 with a nice gloss. They all come in classic tattoo layers as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega.

Lavian&CO

My dress is a free gift from Lavian&CO. It is for the SL Frees & Offers group, which is free to join. There are some other gifts for that group and others available too, as well as some nice one for the Lavian&CO store group (although that one has a fee to join). The dress that I’m wearing has a HUD with a bunch of patterns in different colors and sizes for:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • 5 standard sizes XXS-L

We got nothing to lose, might as well take off our pants

We got nothing to lose, might as well take off our pants

What? I went jogging yesterday so today I’m going to sit in this chair in my underwear. Makes perfect sense to me. And I’m not sitting around in just any underwear, no way. This new super comfy and sexy underwear by Scandalize is simply perfect.

Underthings 

The set that I’m wearing is the new free group gift from Scandalize. The gift is a fatpack and when Scandalize says fatpack they’re not messing around. There are 2 separate HUDs, one plain and one ombres. Each is packed with colors, and the top strip, bottom strip, and main part of both the bra and panties can all be changed separately. Oh and there are 2 pantie options, one with the number 63 on the bum, and the number color can be changed too if you choose that pair. Got all that? haha Let’s just say it’s a lot of colors, okay? The top, bottom, and bottom with number each come sized for:

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

I already said that it’s the latest free group gift from Scandalize, right? AND even better than that, the group is currently free to join! The group is usually paid and I have no idea how long it will be free but if you’re not already in it then you best hurry and join. As for me? I’m going to sit in this chair in my underwear.

Well Behaved Women, Rarely Make History

Well Behaved Women, Rarely Make History

Hey FabFree!

I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend, so far! So, I went browsing around stores in-world this morning and totally remembered a terrific creator with an entire wall of freebies! A lot of her items have been done on FabFree, but I love pretty things, as much as everyone else. The group is free to join, so all you have to do is wear the tag and shop away!!

This black halter gown by Coco Designs was released two years ago, and is so beautifully done I felt the need to share, even now! The dress comes with a necklace to complete the look, if you so wish. I absolutely love the high slit leg and low plunging back, it really brings a sexy appeal to such a simple gown. This gown I honestly believe could be dressed up for a formal affair and could be worn as a maxi dress of sorts. Put on some heels and your hair up and head on out to that formal affair and turn some heads or put on some cute sandals and your hair in a ponytail or braids, maybe some spiffy sunglasses and look nice and comfy for a day around town. The best part is the gown cost you $0L and you look like you just stepped off the runway!

Coco Designs- Halter Gown Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink

Gown was originally posted by Love Trill [here]!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Image

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Image

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent – ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)


Geoffrey is also wearing:

Skin:  Belleza – Shawn Deep Tan (group gift/$350L to join)

Eyes:  [dirty.little.secret] Black eyes (former group gift)

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Men Only Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Men Only Hunt, originally blogged [HERE]

The 4th edition of Men Only Hunt is running through 7AM on June 15 with 58 stores offering completely free prizes if you can find the hidden beer glass hunt object.  A list of participating stores, their SLURLs and hints can be found at the hunt website.  The theme this time is “Summer” and hunters will find plenty of casual clothing, accessories, shoes and tattoos.  There’s not room here to show you all of the MOH4 hunt prizes, but I can show you plenty of examples of the kinds of things you’ll find along the way.

First off, quite a number of the participating stores are offering tattoos.  While all of these tattoo prizes come in tattoo layer form, several also come in clothing layer versions, and an increasing number of them also have SLINK mesh hand appliers as well.  That’s right — the mesh hand/foot craze is starting to hit male fashion too, which means that fashion-conscious men will soon have to start worrying about whether they have the correct hands and feet on when they go out in public.  Obviously I’m still wearing the hands and feet the Linden gods gave me at birth.

Image(Note: Hair in these pictures is Lucifer by A&A Hair and is not included in the hunt)

top row:  Clemm (MOH4 # 49), Tabou Irresistible (MOH4 # 10), Reckless (MOH4 # 19), -Dappa- (MOH4 # 45) and Pekka body piercings (MOH4 # 53)

bottom row:  Sourires (MOH4 # 26), Zentro Body (MOH4 # 32), Speakeasy Tatoo (MOH4 # 38), Taox Tatoo (MOH4 # 42)


In keeping with the summertime theme, several of the MOH4 participating stores are giving glasses and sunglasses as prizes.  Here are the seven I found.

Image

TOP ROW:  [Geek..] (MOH4 #52), Aesthetica (MOH4 #50), UtopiaH (MOH4 #35), [Body Factory] (MOH4 #25)

Bottom ROW:  [sYs] (MOH4 #9), [Zoom] (MOH4 #4), Adjunct (MOH4 #2)


Pretty much all of the clothing prizes in the MOH4 hunt are casual.  Most prizes are shirts or shorts, allowing you to mix and match tops and bottoms to suit your mood, while a few stores are offering complete outfits. I went down to Bondi Beach in the Sydney City region to take some pictures of the outfits I put together from the various shirts and shorts I found in the hunt.

Image

The lowdown on where to find the parts of these outfits is as follows.

Outfit 1: Low Waist Shirt (with 6 color HUD) by [GIOMEN] – MOH#55;  Sum shorts by .ARISE. – MOH#46; Men’s FlipFlops – American Bazaar – MOH#01

Outfit 2:  Summer Flip Flops by Aitui – MOH#16; Anchor Tee V.1 by {Fe Style} – MOH#18; Sum shorts by .ARISE. – MOH#46

Outfit 3:  Saturday Shorts (black) by [tomboi] – MOH#33; Check Summer Shirt by REBELL – MOH#24; Supra Kicks by Razor/// – MOH#27


If you’re looking for a full summer outfit, you’ll find these three lurking among the MOH4 hunt prizes.

Image

The particulars on these full outfits are:

Outfit 4:  Tommy outfit by zanze – MOH#15; Denim Slipons by Anchor & Co. – MOH#7

Outfit 5:  Top, pants & shoes (Marcario) by Shey – MOH#17

Outfit 6:  Donned (Shirt, tie & pants) by SwaggedOut – MOH#54; Zanotti sneakers by Sabotage – MOH#56


Well, after a hard day of hunting I decided to put on two more hunt gifts, a hunt prize shape by Surrogates and another hunt prize skin by T.Bare and catch some rays.  The swim trunks in this picture are not a hunt prize but is one of a set of six James Bond swimsuits by sf Designs.

Image

Shape:  Clint by Surrogates – MOH#44

Skin: Apollon Deep Tan-Eyebrow Cut by T.Bare – MOH#21

Swimsuit:  James Bond swimsuit by sf Designs (not free)

But if you’re going to get a tan, best to do it without getting a tan line.  Fortunately Grafica Poses (MOH#6) is giving out the bain de soleil pose complete with a wearable straw hat strategically positioned in just the right place.  Aaahhhhhh…..

Image

In all but the last two pictures Geoffrey is wearing:

Skin:  Xen_tan_bald_shaved by Prodigal (not free)

Eyes: Deep Honey Hazel mesh eyes by MayFly (not free)

Hair:  Steve by A&A Hair (not free)
