A few more days of Summer sun

Boy… that was one long weekend! I hope it was a great one for all you Fabulous Folks.

BRii_001

Happily, I got a minute or two to satisfy my SL Hunt desires at Brii’s Underground Wear. This is the 1L White and Flowers Hunt ad it runs until August 31st.  There are ten sweet summery outfits hidden in  little clusters of flowers all over the store to find. Each prize is only 1 little linden but you get the outfit, the shoes and a make-up on a tattoo layer. I chose to show my favorite prize today: the Elsie. Again, you get the dress in five standard Mesh sizes, the shoes for SLink High Feet and a tattoo layer make-up.

I don’t want to let go of summer just yet so leave me here in my garden and my summery sundress for a little longer.

End of Summer

Coming soon to FabFree

Summer is winding down and I’m just not ready to let go of my cute summery wardrobe, especially now that I’ve added this adorable outfit from Daisy’s Closet.  It is available right now as a group gift (free to join) and includes the sweet tank top with eyelet lace trim and cut off black denim shorts.  If you are addicted to applier clothing like I am, you will be happy to find not only system layers, but Slink, Maitreya, and Omega appliers as well.  The outfit is very detailed and blends sweet and sexy perfectly.

Coming soon to FabFree

The White Watch from Swallow makes the perfect, simple accessory for this outfit.  It is a group gift, and the group costs $15 L to join, but there are so many great gifts out, making the fee more than worth it in my opinion.  Among the group gift is a multi pack of mesh eyes.  Moira is shown here wearing tone 1.

Coming Soon to FabFree

I am in love with these sweet, and free, pineapple print flats from G Field.  They are sized for both Slink and Maitreya flat feet, and you can also find a mid foot version in store!

I hope you all have a wonderful end of summer!

Love,

Moi

Drifty Dainty Dreaming

Snapshot

A beautiful dream!

My new Freya lingerie is FREE from Maai, it is their new GG and the group is FREE to join. Pretty detailing, sheer in the right places and modest in others with a touch of lace this set is just divine. It includes system layers, slink, TMP and Omega appliers. Maai is always generous with her appliers. I mentioned the FREE 7 Deadly S{k}ins Aug GG here and that there was 1 more skin in the box. This is the paler skin, marshmellow. It has lovely soft features and is a pretty everyday skin. You may already own it if you grabbed it before if not you have to the end of the month to still get it for FREE with a 50L group join fee.

Snapshot These dreamy Papillon (butterfly) balloons are FREE from Moon Amore at the current round of Collab88. You get several colors in the pack. They are designed to be worn but I rezzed mine for a dreamy drifty effect. At a mere 1 prim each you can rezz them too. SnapshotI happened on this Dreamfield with pearls on Marketplace which was the perfect final touch for my dreams. The bubbles and sparkles drift up slowly. They are transfer only but at 1L a set you could grab as many as you need to fill your dreams with them.

Just Say ‘I Do’

Hello hello, Fab Free Folks! I hope this brand new August is treating you well. With the start of August we have the start of a bunch of new Hunts including the 1L  ‘Marry Me Hunt’ from Nefeli Events.

Just Say "I Do"
I picked this Hunt because I am such a hopeless romantic. My real life wedding anniversary is in August so dressing up as a bride again in second life was just too much fun. I started with the dress, of course. This is the Chiffon Sparkle Wedding Gown from Kitty Shape Wears. You get both the dress and the shimmery veil in the Hunt prize. I know this is a wedding dress but the clean elegant lines would make this a lovely evening gown for any occasion.     Just Say "I Do"

 

I added some glamor and glitz with the “Beloved” jewelry set from Footpaw Industries. Your one Linden will score you the necklace, the earrings, two bracelets, the tiara, and two hair sticks. And again, this is lovely wedding wear but you could easily wear the set for any dress up occasion.

Now I just needed the perfect back drop for my new finery. Darkmatter stepped up and granted my wish with the gorgeous Lover’s Bench. The sweet little retreat comes loaded with three couples poses just right for photos.

The Marry Me Hunt runs until August 31st so hurry down the aisle!

Clothes That Don’t Wear Out And Great Places To Wear Them!

8415 ab2_001

Hello, everyone! This week, I am sharing something a bit special with you; and it has to do with the very spot where I am standing. But first, let’s talk about something FREE and fantastic! Every month, I swing by the American Bazaar store to pick up their FREE group gift. This month they have offered the James Jacket in Electric Blue along with the James Shirt in Black. Each piece comes in five sizes for versatility, but they are meant to be worn together so there is a single alpha accommodating both the jacket and shirt. The color is dark and dramatic, just like me! When I dress for my own pleasure, this is absolutely the kind of item I am drawn to: dressy, yet still very casual and comfortable looking. American Bazaar did a great job with this garment. Plus, the group is FREE to join, so make sure you run out and pick this up.

All of us have very different reasons to be on SL, and what we choose to do here can be vastly different from avy to avy. I am an avid freebie hunter, blogger, and general goof off, but Second Life offers us many different activities to do and enjoy. One that I personally like to do is go to concerts and listen to live performers like my friends Phideaux Mayo and Maximillion Kleene. I truly admire the talent and courage it takes to get up in front of people and perform. When you are looking for an interesting activity, I encourage you to search in “events” and sample some of the live entertainment SL has to offer, which brings me to where I am now standing. This is the ENT SL RADIO TRANSPORT HUB and is an excellent place to pop by when you are looking for entertainment. ENT SL Radio is kind of like RL public broadcasting: it offers eighty hours of FREE programming a week! You can even listen to it outside of Second Life by visiting their web site. At the hub, you will find many kiosks, each if which represents a club that is partnering with ENT to help broadcast and promote live music to the SL community. Walk around and check out the schedules. You can even teleport directly to your club of choice from the bus stop. It is a fun and FREE way to explore music and clubs that you might not have experienced yet. I highly recommend you add it to your list of places to check out.

8415 madcat 3_001

Now that you have a great place to go, to choose whichever live performer you may fancy, how about something else you could wear? It is my pleasure to let you know about another item from Madcat Creations that is definitely worthy of your attention. Madcat Creations got my attention in late April by making an amazing hippie outfit that I blogged here. Now they are offering a 1L hunt prize from the Romance Under The Stars Hunt, the Leather N Lace in Red Dress Shirt and Jacket combo looks great with its vibrant color, in addition to giving me my recommended daily dose of black clothing. Together with the white tee part of this garment, the three components in the mesh look extremely well layered giving the appearance of being separate items. This is a fantastic piece of mesh! It comes in three sizes, each of them being similar to fitmesh in that they will conform to your avy. I got an excellent fit without any fuss at all. The red is quite eye catching. After all, do you really want to spend your time blending into the background? Reach for some color now and then and spice up your Second Life, and this garment is an excellent start.

That is all for now. I am going to wander about and find a good concert to check out. However you choose to spend your Second Life, I wish you the best and look forward to running into you one day. Until then, have fun and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Besom body, be Anybody

AMD1

Hello Fab Free’rs, we made it through Monday! I think that deserves a little celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a little shopping trip?! The pretty sleeveless top Pru has on is the current 25 linden special at Apple May Designs. I love this pretty dark pink color. The top is fully mesh and includes this pinstriped version and a plain version. In the package you’ll get the standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza fit for both Isis and Freya bodies. The top will be available for just 25 lindens until August 7th, so don’t forget to stop by Apple May Designs!

AMD2

In addition to the cute top from AMD, I also picked up this gorgeous hairstyle from Besom. The Besom group is currently FREE to join, and this hairstyle “Genesis” is a current FREE gift. This gift comes in a complete fat pack with all the available color huds. I love the heavy bangs and thick lush waves.

So, if you’ve been wondering about the skin Pru has on, you’re in luck! This is the Lazy Sunday skin by Lumae from last Sunday. I know it’s not Sunday anymore, but Lumae is leaving the skin at the ultra low price of 75 lindens per tone until August 15th! What makes this an even better deal is the fact that it’s a full skin with all the available appliers and add-ons.

Next, if you haven’t been to The Aloha Fair yet, you need to go! I’m honestly not sure how long it is running. This beautiful medallion Pru is wearing is the dollarbie gift from Tantalum at The Aloha Fair. I think it’s a great statement piece, and the fact that it’s named “Atreyu” makes me think that the creator may have been inspired by the movie “The Never-ending Story” and that makes my dork side seriously happy.

Last but not least, I have a little preview of good things to come from Entice. These matte leather pumps will be available at Entice for just 49 lindens starting tomorrow (August 5th) as part of their Secret Wednesday Yard Sale Week. Everyone who wears Slink or Maitreya fit heels should have a pair like this in their wardrobe. They go with everything!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Sailor Prudence

Sailor PruIt’s Cos-play time! One thing I never tire of, even as an adult, is playing dress-up. Maybe that’s why I enjoy blogging so much. I get to play dress up regularly. Recently I came across this super cute Sailor Moon inspired outfit from Milk Tea. The shorts and top set is the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt gift at Milk Tea, and you can hunt it down and claim it for just one linden. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in system layers and includes omega appliers, a Lolas applier, a Belleza applier, and a “Combo” applier. Needless to say, it’s got quite a few options! To add to this playful outfit I found a cute little compact on the Marketplace. This crescent moon shaped compact is by Ity and is FREE on the Marketplace. Next, the moment I saw the FREE gift from ZOZ at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I had to have it for this outfit! The nail palate gift from ZOZ comes with a pretty array of slick blue polishes. Now all I need is a good convention to go to, and I’ll be set! ** My sincere apologies Fab Free’rs, I made a mistake on the Nail Appliers from ZOZ. They are Not available as a gift. I’m so sorry for the oops! 

Have Fun, here are the details!

He Shoots, He Scores!

72715bball5b_001

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week, I decided to get more exercise, change some of my poor eating habits, and end up with a healthier version of me! Yeah…had you going there a minute, didn’t I? LOL! Seriously, my favorite find this week is a very good looking basketball uniform emblazoned with the words “New York” across the front. The hunt prize from the Boom Boom Pow Hunt, The Mensline Mesh Basketball Outfit from KAD Designs is great athletic wear even, if you aren’t a basketball fan. The jersey alone would fit well in an urban street wear outfit, but KAD Designs gives you much more than that! The hunt prize includes the entire uniform right down to the sneakers and socks. In you have no need of active wear, consider this: The outfit has some seriously fun role play potential in the right situations. The Boom Boom Pow hunt ends on the 31st of July, and this gift will set you back 1L. Hurry and grab it, it is a very nice gift.

72815Basketball Blk1

Staying with the basketball theme, earlier today I saw that IAF had set out a goodie bag for us guys with multiple freebies in it. Among the four items in the bag is this basketball jersey with the number “01” on it and with the name “Hustle” on the back. This happens to be perfect for me since “Hustle” happens to be my nickname around the office. (I sold Love’s stapler to Pru, then wrapped up Pru’s stapler as a gift to Love. I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky kids!) The Jersey is black with silverish gray numbers and accents and would look as great out on the street as it would on a basketball court. One last note, in this very generous FREE gift bag IAF also included some chinos, a sweater, and a wool jacket/shirt combo!

Lastly, my hair is a great FREE group gift from Amacci! Truly one of the best places for men’s hair on the grid, I was very pleased to hear they had put a male hair out recently and hurried over. The current FREE group gift is called “Leon” and comes in cinnamon. It is a nice length for guy hair; I call it medium length in my inventory and is a must pick up, since free hair for guys is such a tough find. I don’t know how long this will be out. So, like most of the end of the month items, it is best to run and grab it before it vanishes like the playoff dreams of a basketball team from a certain city that I will not specify.

That’s what I have for you this week. Whether you want to look good hanging out on the corner talking smack to your friends, playing a quick pick up game of basketball, or have an interesting idea for a role play in mind, these items should come in quite handy. Until next week my friends, take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
