Living Out Loud

Living Out Loud

It seems that I’ve been spending a lot of time around giant sweets these days, but I don’t mind so much.  Luckily I have a sweet tooth of epic proportions to keep up with the desserts of equally epic proportions.  Thank goodness I can eat to my heart’s content in SL and not put on any weight!

Playful Brights

My hot pink dress is a gift at the Cosmopolitan event this month from Masoom.  I really like the string detailing on the side.  Makes it look quite playful!  The free gift can be found by the entrance doors to the event. Just join the Cosmopolitan group (which is free to join) in order to pick it up.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Hourglass

Colourful Locks

The ever resourceful Love pointed me in the direction of this next group gift.  She whispered ever so sweetly that there were some free group gifts at Nyne.  I hopped over right away, and was not disappointed with her tip.  There are three free hairstyles at Nyne right now, and this top knot was right up my alley.  The Nyne group is free to join, so get down there!

Well, dear readers, I guess I could tone down the brightness of my wardrobe, but where would be the fun in that? Live life out loud!

Sugar Lips

Sugar Lips 1

Hey Fab Free!

It’s always fun to get free makeup, because you get to try out some fun looks that you might not usually choose for yourself!  My recent visit to the Candy Fair brought me just such an opportunity, as I picked up a few fun little gifties! You can see the other gifts I picked up HERE.

Sugar-Sweet

My sparkly, sugary lipstick was a fun free gift from Pout! at the Candy Fair It comes in several different shades, and I think it looks quite fun for a night out with friends!  This lipstick comes with an applier for both Catwa and Lelutka.

Macaron Madness

Another little gift at the Candy Fair was the pretty nail polish applier from alaskametro.  I’ve only shown one of the options available, but there are a total of 15 different nail designs, all inspired by my fave french patisserie – the macaron!  This free gift comes with nail appliers for Maitreya and Slink, and there’s an Omega applier in there for good measure!  Here’s a close up of my nails for ya!

Sugar Lips 2

Pocket full of Poses

Last but not least, I always enjoy a good bento pose.  I love the way your fingers can get expressive!  This pose from Foxcity is only 1L on the marketplace!  Super cute!  You can grab this pose right here:

Well, Fab Free – I’d like to wish our American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Although I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving this year (up here in Canadaland!) I’m very thankful to be part of this awesome blogging family – thank YOU all for welcoming me so warmly.

Limit8 but not Limited

Deer me... 1

Limit8 is a new-to-me event though it’s obviously been around a while because this month is its anniversary round with free gifts! If you join the Limit8 group (free to join) you can pick up gifts at each of the booths!

A new dress

I stopped by the Ella booth and picked up a new free dress. It only comes in a Maitreya fit, but you get two colors: Military (shown) and floral (not shown). Both are very pretty.

Shoes too!

Stop by the Dirty Princess booth for new free heels. These Darling Princess Heels in black come with gold details and you’ll get them to fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The bracelets…

I added these chevron bracelets by Bubble which were also a free gift at Limit8. Just stop by the Bubble booth to pick them up.

Deer me... 2

One last touch

I couldn’t resist adding one last touch to my outfit. I adore this free little deer bauble choker necklace by Burial. It is delicate and simple and yet very detailed. It’s simply stunning and my favorite part of this outfit. I had to show it off! Be sure to stop by the event to pick up this free giveaway!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Add a flower.

I stopped by the Aloha Fair and was pleasantly surprised to discover a multitude of generous gifts at the different booths. I picked out the Perllific Necklace with its attached white lily for just 1L at the IT! booth to add to my outfit as the final touch. It is lovely and pretty and all good girlie things! Don’t miss out on this pretty gift!

Don’t Say a Word

Don't Say a Word

“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.”

Feeling Introspective…

When I saw the group gift from Le Morte, I knew I had to have it. The join fee is 50L but I wanted the mouth tape gift of “Silence” as it spoke to me on so many levels. I’m a person who speaks out after all. And the idea of representing silence seemed important. Because I really don’t think we should remain silent when issues are important to us. I won’t get into politics or issues here, but I’ll offer a heartfelt plea to all of you… speak out. Don’t remain silent when something is important to you. I am pretty sure the saying goes that you’ll regret the things you didn’t do, more than the things you did do. That’s sort of the idea I’m going on here.

Hairology is still going on!

On a lighter note, the Hairology Anniversary celebration is still going strong, and you can still pick up lots of FREE and 1L gifts of beautiful hair until November 30th, when the event ends. I picked up my beautiful hair from Iconic called “Michelle” as a FREE gift from Hairology. It came with a fatpack hud of colors. There are lots of other gifts to be had at this event so it is a not-to-be-missed one! Mark it down and teleport in!

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!

Tie Dye & Wave

Tie Dye & Wave

It’s so twisted! But definitely awesome! From June 1st through the 30th… creators have gathered for a good cause! At the Twisted Summer of Love event you can shop and benefit the American Cancer Society… while also hunting for 58 twisted cubes with FREE goodies!

I found a really rad hair that I fell in love with. The FREE gift from The Stringer Mausoleum called “The Wave” is in one of the twisted cubes around the shopping area if you hunt it down (there are decoys!). It comes in this luscious berry color! I used my included LuLutka white hairbase and tinted it to match and voila!

Then did a little shopping and found this really fabulous tie dye shirt by Roped Passions for only 75L at the creator’s booth. I’ve always been a fan of tie dye and this fit the bill (and matched my new hair). There were several other colors to choose from, as well as several outfits that you can purchase and the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer society. That’s a win win for everyone!

Fly Away

Fly Away

I’m taking some time to relax now after a whirlwind tour of the Pick my Strawberry! Event. There are approximately 50 creators participating and if you stop by, you’ll find a little strawberry at each store’s booth, with a FREE gift! While there, I picked up a couple that I really found just as delightful as the theme 🙂

This beautiful white dress with its flared style skirt and sensual plunging neckline is the FREE gift from the FAIDA booth. Just buy the strawberry for 0L and this pretty dress is yours in all the standard mesh sizes.

I also found a couple of lovely gifts I couldn’t pass up at the Firefly booth. Buy the Firefly strawberry for 0L and you’ll get 2 FREE gifts… this intricately detailed blue and silver mesh hair comb, as well as this Black Birds tattoo for your back. The tattoo comes in a system layer as well as a Maitreya mesh body applier.

The event ends May 23rd, so don’t delay! Hurry over and Pick Your Strawberries!

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!
