Sticker fun

Sticker fun

All about those stickers

When I was a kid, stickers were ‘serious business.’ Every other kid I knew was collecting them (the puffy ones are the best, don’t let anyone tell you different) or trading them or just plain showing them off in their fancy sticker books (-ahem-). Fast forward years ahead and stickers are still part of my every day. They’re used as rewards now but sometimes they get caught on clothes or in my hair or maybe even on my face.  The new Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Pink Passion reminded me of such days and since I’m always one to collect unique and cute accessories, there was no way I’d let this free gift slip me by. Put away your makeup layers or your tattoos or scars, stickers are the way to go! I adore how cute and well detailed these cupcakes are (just look at the sprinkles on the yellow one!) but another thing to love is that these stickers are compatible across all avatar types as they are attachments and not appliers or classic layers. You’ll be able to edit the stickers to move them around on your face (not individually, however) and permissions are set to mod and copy so you can make as many backups as you like. This adorable gift from Pink Passion is free and of course getting your FabFree group tag comes at no cost as well. While you’re at the store and have an empty group slot, consider joining the free Pink Passion store group. There are group gifts, lucky letters and a midnight mania board to take advantage of for group members.

 Do you hear that echo?

It’s saying that the gorgeous Marina skin is available for free at the .Ecko. main store. She has such a mysterious look about her, though that dark eye makeup isn’t at all over the top thanks to beautifully neutral lip color. I really love freckles on skin in Second Life and Marina was a great addition to my fast growing collection. The Marina skin folder contains the following:

  • One system skin layer
  • Belleza mesh body applier
  • Loud Mouth applier

You’ll need the Teleport Hub group tag to snag Marina for yourself and luckily enough the group is currently having a free join exercise until the 15th of this month because it’s holding a giveaway for group members. Curious as to what this giveaway is? Join the group to find out but don’t forget to grab your free new skin on the way. While you’re at .Ecko. click on the sub-o to remain up to date on new releases and other goodies from the store. It won’t cost a group slot and there are gifts available to sub-o subscribers. Be sure to also grab .Ecko.’s FabFree group gift too okaaaayyy?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to see if I can dig out my old sticker collection…catch you guys later!

FabFree Designer Friday – 02/24/2017 – Ecko

Ecko Storefront
Good Evening Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday features a shop called Ecko. I was a little surprised that Ecko is such a new shop in Second Life. The clothing at Ecko has a cute casual style that would appeal to almost anyone. Ecko sells mainly women’s mesh and applier clothing. You’ll also find some fun accessories. At the landing point just outside the entrance you’ll be greeted by a few shop pets, and the subscriber kiosk. You’ll want to be sure to join the subscriber to keep up-to-date on all things Ecko, also subscriber members have access to 2 FREE gifts inside the store.
Ecko Info
Just inside the entrance, there’s a kiosk with a weekly special purchase for just 50 lindens. It also appears there are a limited number of this special purchase. Once inside if you browse your way to the right side of the shop you’ll find 2 FREE gifts for subscribers. Since you joined the Ecko subscriber on the way in, just click the vendors and your FREE gifts will be delivered to you. The right side of the shop is also where you’ll find the “wall of information” as I have come to call similar spots in other shops. Here you’ll find all the information about store affiliations and current/upcoming events and hunts. This is also where you’ll find Ecko’s exclusive Fab Free group gift. This cute little dress was previously shown on the Fab Free blog by Kathryn. Make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick up this FREE gift.  There are also a few other group gifts. Take a moment to stop by  Ecko and do a little shopping, perhaps a little hunting, and a little freebie grabbing!

Echoes of Summer

Echoes of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Although it was a manic Monday in some parts of the world, I still enjoyed the balmy weather on my impromptu getaway.   The soft lap of waves, the cries of gulls, and the golden glow of a lovely sunset filled the air as Ripley and I explored the Salt Water sim.

Strapless Summery Fashion

Before heading out with the pup, I slipped on the Salin dress, which is the latest free gift for Fab Free group members from Ecko.  I love the fit of this strapless frock, and the way the hemline is slightly longer in the back than in the front.  Featuring a silvery gray and black pattern, this dress is perfect for a casual stroll or a day of shopping.  I chose to leave my shoulders bare, but I could see draping on a lovely necklace or even a shawl to add an additional touch of flair.  To scoop up Salin for your very own, simply swap over to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to Ecko, then tap the gift board.  You will come away with a super cute, free summer dress.  Happy times!

What’s Included

  • Standard Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

A Little Touch of Bling

To add a bit of elegance, I embellished my outfit with a pair of dangling silver Shaka earrings that I discovered for 70% off at Mandala’s Marketplace store.  The detail and workmanship the designer invested while crafting these jewels is impressive.  With a texture that readily complemented my dress, these earrings added just the right touch of movement and sparkle.  I have always loved Mandala jewelry, and discovering the continued 70% off sale on certain items at the Marketplace store was enough to bring a smile to my face.

The Dreaded Return to the Grind

All too quickly, my escape with Rip will end.  I’d better savor these last few moments of serenity before we have to face Jack Frost’s chilly presence once more.  I hope you will be able to utilize the magic of SL to experience a bit of warmth and sunshine if you long for an echo of summer like I did.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beautiful Era

Beautiful era

Such exciting times!

Looks like the FabFree Group Gift list is growing again and I hope you’ve wasted no time in reaping all of the generous offerings. For my part, I had fun hopping from store to store and now with everything unpacked and organized (whew!) I’ve come to share one of these gifts with you plus some other free and under 75L finds. If you aren’t a part of the FabFree group yet, get in on the fun by pasting the following link into the local chat of your SL viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and then clicking on the link. Are you all set? Great! Cause I’m ready to share!

A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down…

Hunting out great deals for all you lovely readers out there is not something that I would consider a chore but one look at the Tiffany dress from Belle Epoque immediately brought to mind this song from the Mary Poppins movie. Not only is the lovely lavender coloring reminiscent of candy floss, its hooped skirt and delicate lace detailing add a very feminine touch. The buttons on this dress are well-crafted, eye-catching details and I appreciate that they go right up to the dress’ high collar.  I haven’t had the chance to strike role playing off my bucket list but I imagine that this dress would be a good fit on a Steampunk or Victorian sim. The Tiffany dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer included in the folder to help with the fitting. All you need to do to have this beautiful new addition to your wardrobe is to head on over to Belle Epoque, activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click away. The dress is yours for free. While you’re there at Belle Epoque as they have other beautiful dresses with a vintage feel in their collection.

Step out in style!

I’ve paired off the Tiffany dress with boots (what else?) from Baby Monkey one of my favorite shoe stores. Sometimes it’s hard to find boots with both a relaxed and formal feel to them but I think that the Pixie boots manage to balance out these two facets really well with the studded detailing and low heel. What’s better is that the Pixie boots are made for both mesh and classic system feet. In the package, you will receive a pair for classic feet as well as pairs for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink flat feet. An alpha layer and boot fitter are also included in the pack as well as an easy to use Hud which will help you modify the look and feet of your boots to your liking. The Pixie boots are just one of the group gifts available at Baby Monkey and there is a one-time fee of 20L to join.

Not so wicked witch…

It seems that I just can’t shake off dressing up for Halloween (lol)! Truth be told I wanted to wear one of my bunned up hairstyles for this picture but then tested out the Little Witch hairstyle from Ayashi at SaNaRae and the rest is history. There was no way I could resist this long and flowing hairstyle from its cute bangs to the well-detailed bows to the jaunty looking hat and I personally think that the style went well with the dress. If vibrant acid green isn’t your style, the Little Witch hair comes with a Hud that lets you choose from red or green shades in various tones. It also lets you customize the hat and bows and also has an option to hide the hat. The SaNaRae group is free to join so head on down to the latest round to pick up your gifts. If you’re still not convinced check out these posts {HERE} and {HERE} which showcase other gifts available for you.

An Ecko.

Last week you might have read one of Kat’s adventures with Ripley centering around the Ecko’s FabFree group gift, if you haven’t it’s {HERE}, and it got me really interested to see the store for myself. My visit reaped a couple of interesting discoveries and one of which is that Ecko is offering the Salor skin as a free subscriber group gift. I always love trying on new skins and this one with its unique tones did not disappoint. The Salor skin package comes in two classic skins with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as a hud for Belleza and an applier for Loud Mouth. There are other subscriber gifts available at the store so sign up and pack your wardrobe with goodies. While you’re there don’t forget to grab your Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well.

Giveaways!

I’ve been testing out different eyes lately and was pleasantly surprised to discover that Dulce Secrets has a giveaway for them. Shown in the picture are the Transcendental Sliver Pink eyes which you can get for free at the main store. The shine and reflection in these eyes are remarkable as is its subtle pink coloring. In the prize package, you will receive classic system eyes as well as mesh ones and an alpha layer. There is no group required to hit the giveaway boards so these beautiful pair of eyes are yours completely free!

And that wraps it up! Have fun in your explorations of Second Life and have a great day!

Where the Sky Touches the Sea

Where the Sky Touches the Sea
Ahoy there, Fab Free!  My trusty sea dog, Ripley, spotted a Fabulous Find today through his spyglass, and sounded the alarm as he paced the deck of our ship.  I followed his pointing nose, and caught sight of what looked to be the arms of a tentacled Kraken reaching above the waves, but it was actually the whimsical Octa dress from .Ecko.  While I admired the dress from a distance, Ripley took control of the rudder, and piloted us safely to shore so I could net a Saturday Special Edition outfit to share with our wonderful readers.

The Dress

This strapless frock is the most recent free gift from .Ecko. for Fabulously Free in SL group members, and features white octopus arms playfully waving across a jet-black background.  The gift comes in five standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, but hugged every curve of my Maitreya Lara body after adjusting the alpha layer.  It left my shoulders bare to enjoy the caress of gentle ocean breezes as my pup and I continued our sea adventure to scope out the rest of my outfit.

Sizes Included

Mesh for Classic avatars:  XXS, XS, S, M, L

Sideswept

Side-Swept Ponytail

As we got underway once more, a friendly seagull swooped down bearing welcome news of a brand-new gift from Truth Hawks for Truth VIP Group Members.  For a one-time fee of 265L, members will have access to an exclusive monthly hair style, which is scheduled to arrive the first week of each month, and will only be available for one month.  In addition, members will be granted early access to sales.  Deja, November’s free VIP hairstyle, is a loose, side-swept ponytail complete with the optional wispy bangs I am wearing here, as well as a cuff and side hair which I opted not to add in my picture.  This generous gift contains a full fat-pack of all color HUD variations Truth offers!  In real life, I often sport a ponytail, and I wish it was as glamorous and elegant looking as this one.

Accessories….The Exclamation Point of an Outfit

In my blog post here, I featured Victoria Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique.  I discovered today if you join the in-world Ben’s Beauty group, you can receive this free Harmony necklace.  It comes complete with a HUD that allows you to choose from 20 different scarf-stone colors and 4 metal textures.  I love how this piece of jewelry combines the look of a necklace with the added pop of a scarf, all wrapped up in one versatile piece.  I opted to stay with black and silver to coordinate with my dress.  Best of all, the Ben’s Beauty group is free to join!  Angular bangles from Izzies, and hoop earrings from Phoebe Piercings and More added the final touches of bling.

After slipping on RADEX Mesh Hayal High boots, which I found on the Marketplace for 89L, this pirate seafarer was ready for more adventures on the deep blue ocean with her ever-faithful, bargain-sniffing hound by her side.  Until next time, happy shopping!
