I REBEL

I REBEL

I REBEL

Hello There Fab Free’rs! It’s true, in my heart of hearts I am really super nerdy. I doubt that comes as much of a surprise! All the same when I saw the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from Eclectic Stars, you better believe I snagged it quick. This Star Wars themed v-neck tee has the Rebel symbol and the phrase “I Rebel” in yellow. I really like this casual top on so many levels, not just for the obvious Star Wars reference, though that’s a big plus in my book. This cute top from Eclectic Stars is FREE to all Fab Free group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and has an alpha layer for non mesh avatars. Don’t forget to wear you Fab Free group tag when you head over to Eclectic Stars to pick up your FREE gift.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), FitMesh (XS – L) *Apha Layer Also Included

Nerd Glasses

Alright, I know it’s a huge cliche to suggest that to be nerdy you should wear glasses or that wearing glasses is nerdy but come on, these are cute! They also are technically a mens gift from BlankLine. I happened across these FREE basic black glasses while surfing through Flickr. They come with resize scripts for easy fitting. To get your pair head over to BlankLine (if you land in the “Mens Department” you’re in the right spot) and there’s a BlankLine group joiner right at the landing spot. The BlankLine group is FREE to join. Just above the BlankLine group joiner is the gift vendor for these adorably basic glasses.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Hero Inside

Closed for Business Open for Hero...ing

It was a dark and dangerous alley and all the stores were closed for business… but I had work to do… hero-ing it up and all.

A Dirty Little Secret

It all began with a hunt at Eclectic Stars. The Dirty Little Secrets Hunt to be exact. It has two paths… a 50L hunt path and a 1L hunt path. I stumbled upon the 1L hunt path by chance and ended up with a super hero batman studded blindfold for just 1L at Eclectic Stars. All you have to do is hunt down the little black key with it’s red ribbon. (There’s also a Golden Lasso blindfold in the box.) I knew it was time to find the super hero inside!

The Hero Inside

That led me to the marketplace in search of the perfect shirt. Inodoro provided and for just 5L! I got this batman t-shirt, perfect for every day hero wear, and in the most popular mesh body sizes. The package includes sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. For 5L, it was a steal… errr… deal.

Happy hero-ing!

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!

It’s an 8bit Christmas

8 Bit Christmas

Hunting time again.

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s the weekend once again and that means it’s time to dig into more hunts. I’ve been trying out a few this past week and aside from getting mixed up and turned around (happened quite a bit, unfortunately) my loot bag has been stuffed to the brim with goodies. One such example is the beautifully quirky 8bit Christmas dress that’s out from Eclectic Stars for the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt. If you’ve read Pru’s post {HERE} Eclectic Stars carries a wide range of unique and nerdy clothing and furniture pieces and the 8bit Christmas dress is no exception. True to its name the dress features cute pixel Santas, reindeers, Christmas trees and candy canes and gave me quite the nostalgic kick for the old video games I used to play (Pac-Man!) Coupled with the vivid Christmas-y color scheme of greens and reds you’ll surely have a great dress for this season. The 8bit Christmas dress comes in 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer to help with the fit as well as sizing for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. Prizes in the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt costs 1L but if you’d rather not poke around the store you can buy the prize for 25L from the mistletoe prize prim. Personally, I’d take some time to peruse the items in Eclectic Stars as they do have a free no group needed advent calendar up, not to mention a Midnight Mania board and their free FabFree group gift! Curious to see what that is? Take a peek at Julianna’s post {HERE}

Tis the season…

To join groups for free! Moon hair store has set their group join fee to 0L and they have a wide range of group gifts out for you to pounce on. I’ve been watching this store for a while because of their elegantly casually hairstyles and beautiful hair colors and was pretty pleased to have discovered this free join period. Pictured is the Mias La II which is but one of many group gifts available. While I was partial to the dusty light purple version of this hairstyle there are nine other out of the ordinary colors to choose from an easy to use Hud that’s included in the gift package. Once you’re in the group, you can take advantage of group only Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Mania board. I’m not sure when Moon’s free group join exercise will end so join up soon.

This glittery Christmas

The holiday season is a good excuse for glitter and since I love shiny things and shoes from Baby Monkey I zoomed right over to the store when I saw that they’ve generously set out a gift for the Fabulously Free in SL group. As you well know the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join and if you’re not a member yet you can copy and paste the following link into the main chat of your SL viewer and click on the link when it pops up on local. The link is: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . Welcome to the group, please grab your free shoes. Classic pumps are a staple in any shoe collection and these come in six (you read that right) beautiful glittery colors. Just click on the hud provided in the gift package and have fun matching your shoes to your outfit. The Glitter Pumps come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. When you’re done grabbing your free group gift, check out the no group needed lucky letter chairs (two for guys as well) and the advent tree that’s set out at the Baby Monkey Mainstore!

8 Bit Christmas headshotThe search is still on!

In my last post {HERE} I said that two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2. If you guessed that the other store is 7 Deadly s{K}ins then you’re right and they’re offering the Amina skin shown above. You can get sweet-faced Amina for 0L by hunting out the snowflake at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins main store and once you’ve found it be ready to be in for a treat. The prize package contains the Amina classic skin in six skin tones (caramel shown) with cleavage/no cleavage options. Four skin tones (caramel, fudge, sand and taupe) have cluster packages that include appliers for Banned, Wowmeh, Tango, Phatazz and Slink Hands and Feet whereas appliers for Tango, Pthatazz and Slink Hands and Feet are provided for the skin tone Powder. It’s a very generous and top quality gift but I’ve found that it’s par for course for 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you’re not a group member, do think about joining up as the store is holding a group only advent and the join fee for the group is free.

I also mentioned…

That Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and that their gift was a trio of beautiful Ice Dream Eyes. I’ve been wearing the blue pair the entire week and decided to switch up to the green pair for this picture. The colors are very stunning and I love the snowy glaze on these green peepers just as much as I love them on the blue. If you haven’t picked up this lovely prize, it’s available for free when you find the snowflake at the Mesange main store. Prize package includes system layer eyes, mesh eyes and Genesis and Omega System huds.

If you’ve missed the coverage for the Women Only Hunt 2, here’s a rundown:

Gotta get back to those hunts now. Have fun on your weekend dear readers!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Saturday – 11/26/2016 – Eclectic Stars

Eclectic Stars FFDFHello Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long few days and I sincerely hope you will all forgive this late edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. I blame Thanksgiving! That said, the lateness of this post does not at all reflect the level of Fabulous of this week’s shop Eclectic Stars. The word eclectic sincerely suits this shop. Though small, the store offers a wide range of mostly women’s clothing and furniture; all of which are delightfully geeky!

Eclectic Stars has been part of the Second Life world since 2013. The shop’s creator Jadziyah describes herself as both cheeky and geeky, and I believe her. You’ll find both attributes in her playful creations. The clothing appears to be mostly casual mesh women’s clothing. The clothes are often brightly colored, and there are a lot of hilariously nerdy graphic tees with references to pop culture, gaming, and everything in between. You’ll find the clothing to the left, along with a few tattoos and some gachas. On the right side of the store as you enter is where you’ll find some whimsical furniture and decor. It’s in this section of the Eclectic Stars shop that it becomes unmistakably obvious the creator is a gamer! You’ll see what I mean when you visit Eclectic Stars yourself.
Eclectic Stars FFDFAlong with all the geeky goodness, there are a few opportunities for FREEbies that I spotted while I was exploring the Eclectic Stars shop. There is a current group gift located behind the front desk just as you enter the store. The Eclectic Stars group is FREE to join. You’ll find the group joiner above the group gift vendor. Pictured above, the group gift is a puny tshirt that would make any geek proud! Also don’t forget to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift while you’re there, assuming you haven’t already. Julianna blogged the super cute Fab Free group gift dress in her post here. The Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars is just inside the store and to the right. You can’t miss it!

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. 🙂

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! 😀
