Ax-Man…

I may not have mutant superpowers, but I can swing a mean axe. Who needs adamantium claws when this axe will split a stack of logs in a matter of minutes? I just hope there is a warm beverage waiting for me inside when I’m done.

A warm winter workout…

I may work up a sweat chopping wood, but I still need to keep warm. I found some FREE items to help you look fashionable while still getting the job done. The latest group gift at Resun Fashion is the Simon Black Jacket. The Resun group is FREE to join. The jacket comes in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes S-XL w/alpha layer

I hit it big on the group Lucky Boards at Rebellion . My letter came up as I was rezzing in and walked away with the Militant V-Neck Tee in just a matter of seconds. I am NEVER that lucky. The t-shirt comes with a texture HUD for four different color combinations. You need to be a member of the Rebellion group to play the boards, but the group is also FREE to join.

Bento gloves for my Bento hands…

Ever since I received the update for my body and now have Bento hands, I’m playing with them all the time (as some of my Flickr followers have seen).  And now I can use the Male Bento Gloves, a FREE group gift at E-Clipse Design. This gift also includes a texture HUD to change the gloves color to either Sand, Brown, or Black. Ladies, there is also a gift in your size too! And just like the other two gifts, the E-Clipse group is FREE to join. You don’t have to spend a lot to look good. Just axe (ask) me… 🙂

Happy Birthday, Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic event is celebrating its 2nd anniversary this month, and all of the gifts are for YOU! You do need to join the Tres Chic in-world group, but it is free to join, and there are SO MANY awesome gifts!

So let’s get started! 😀

The Skin

First off, how gorgeous is this skin? It’s a different look for me, but when I tried it on, I thought it was so beautiful that I just had to share it with you.

The skin applier is the Tres Chic anniversary gift from PUMEC. It comes in this one tone and is for LeLutka mesh heads. AND… not only do you get the head applier, but you also get body appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega mesh bodies, system skin appliers, and Vista/Omega hand appliers. All of the body appliers include an option for “push-up,” if you’d like a little extra cleavage. 😉

The Hair

My hair is the Tres Chic gift from DeLa. It comes in fitted and regular mesh versions, and both have a materials option. A HUD with 18 different colors is included, and there is even a version for the fellas.

The Accessories

I fell in love with this CatchMe! necklace by E-Clipse as soon as I tried it on. It reminds me of a cross between an Irish Claddagh and a Game of Thrones Hand of the King pin. 🙂 A texture-change HUD containing 3 metal colors and 8 different stones is included.

Another Tres Chic gift is my Infinity Ring from Ec.cloth, which comes in versions for both Maitreya and Vista Bento hands. And yes, you get a texture-change HUD with this one too – 4 different metals are included.

Let's Play

But wait, there’s more!

The Glasses

Though you may not be able to see them very well, I’m actually wearing a pair of really pretty sunglasses in this picture. Petite Mort set out the Gold Lennon Round Specs as their Tres Chic anniversary gift. The lenses are just dark enough to add a bit of mystery and style to any outfit. There is no resizer, but you can edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

The Dress

Last, but definitely not least, is this super sexy linen dress from POSIE. The Alaia dress comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. It is nicely textured and really hugs your curves in all the right places.

Head Over to Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round ends on June 5th, so don’t delay. There are still lots of people there, so wearing your “low lag” attire is advised (I wore a full body alpha like a ghost). 😉

Wrap it Up with a Bow

Wrap it Up with a Bow 1

Feeling lucky

I was feeling lucky, and I happened to stop by The Little Bat because it’s a place I can try my luck when I think a lucky streak has hit. It has 4 Lucky Letter boards, two Midnight Madness boards and a Lucky Guess game that will all let you win fabulous Gothic style clothing for free, no group required. I managed to round up a lot of goodies, but my favorite was this free Heather Top in purple with its black bow and flared sleeves. It came in all the standard sizes and a good quality alpha layer. It was well worth waiting for my lucky letter!

Checking out Ostara’s Altar Hunt

I ran across a little Hunt that I couldn’t resist. There are 10 Ostara’s Eggs hidden about on the Ostara’s Altar Faire right now among the booths that are on display (lots of great sale items in the booths). Each egg is only 5L when you find it and contains a quality gift from a great creator. My personal favorite item matched my look and my sweater and was a gift from Oubliette — a pair of Pastel Goth Chucks. These shoes are non-rigged mesh and should fit just about any foot type. I only had to do a little bit of editing to get them to fit my Maitreya feet. I feel certain they would fit Slink and TMP feet as well.

The other gifts were just as nice, and this Hunt lasts until April 16, so you have some time to stop by and wander around the little faire to see what you can see. I’d recommend the shopping there as well!

Sitting Pretty

Hunting for Frosting.

I made a couple stops along the trail of the Frosting Hunt and found a couple of gems to share with you. My first stop was Prism, where I picked up my outfit. It includes this excellent pair of suede pants and the lovely off the shoulder pink sweater. Each piece is separate and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer. For just 1L and a little hunting time to find the snowflake, this gem of an outfit can be yours.

Sitting pretty.

I also stopped by Kitty Creations because I was in need of a furniture pick-me-up. The Frosting Hunt prize there is this lovely braided rug as well as this nicely patterned black ottoman which includes quite a few very nice unisex sits. The rug is copiable, but the ottoman is no copy. However for only 1L, if you want more than one of this gorgeous ottoman, it won’t break the bank to hunt down the snowflake and buy more than one copy of this Frosting Hunt prize at Kitty Creations.

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

Country Boho & Feathers

Country Boho & Feathers 2

I was born and raised in the country… and so the latest FREE group gift from The Beautiful Ones just stole my heart, and I knew I had to show it to you. For a mere 25L the TBO group tag is yours, and then you can have this fabulous Lupe Boho cardigan and top. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as a generous assortment of fitmesh sizes… including Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya. The top is one piece for easy wear, and I paired it with my favorite jeans for a classic country look.

Country Boho & Feathers

I wanted some pretty jewelry to go with my new top, so I hopped on the marketplace and happened across a happy find… this lovely necklace and earrings set called Feather by Miam Miam. It had just the delicate boho look I wanted, and is texture change for three metal colors (silver, gold, and copper). For only 10L, I think it was a steal of a deal.

Lucky Me!

Lucky Me!

I’m feeling lucky today! Are you? It must be all these lucky finds out on these great March hunts! The Women’s Stuff Hunt is proving lucky indeed with some great finds… like this applier shirt and this belly button ring!

To get my fun applier corset top, which comes in a universal hud or system layers either one, just take a jaunt over to 1 Hundred. It will only cost you a little hunting for the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt T-shirt and the tiny sum of 1L.

My fun 4-leaf clover belly button ring is courtesy of Vengeful Threads and is a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift if you take a look around their main-store and find the little red T-shirt.

After all that hunting, I decided to head over to The Blarney Stone, where the drinks were on the house! Cheers!

Music to My Ears

Quality FREE clothes in Second Life are always music to my ears! And if you haven’t stopped by Free Dove lately to check out the many wonderful offerings by all the creative designers who come together in one great location to give you goodies, you are missing out! I’m giving you a peek at just a few items you can pick up at Free Dove to give you an idea of the lovely things available!

Music to My Ears 1

Free Dove has it all for both Ladies and Gents… from the casual to the elegant! My fun casual side tie t-shirt and skirt outfit above with its cute Gothic print on the shirt is a FREE gift you can pick up courtesy of Iconica at Free Dove. Like all the gifts, no group is required. Just buy it for 0L.

Music to My Ears 2

Free Dove has plenty of elegant looks as well. Don’t be fooled by my casual attire in the first picture. I picked up this classy Simply Dressy black dress by Apple May Designs for FREE at Free Dove as well. It is their current FREE gift at the location. It is just long enough to be a cocktail dress, but a little short for my modesty, so I paired it with a pair of capris from my inventory, but you could certainly wear it alone!

I also nabbed a pair of really stylish FREE slink heels by Vavien Stylish while I was there. These strappy stilettos were just the thing to keep my dress looking dressy, even though I paired it with jeans 😉

There really are too many great FREE gifts at the Free Dove to share with you in one post. Don’t wait, head there and check it out for yourself!
