Meh, Whatever!

Meh, Whatever

Hello Fabulouses!  Rip and I continued with our hunting spree this weekend – this time along the Meh, Whatever Hunt trail.  With prizes set to sale for just 1L each, this event runs until August 31.  There is quite a variety in the hunt gifts since the theme for designers was to create whatever they wanted.  You can get a preview of what’s available by visiting the Pounce Hunts web page here.  You’ll be looking for a red and black box with question marks.

Pretty as a Blooming Dahlia

When I saw the preview photo of the Macy Silk Dress from C!L Boutique, I knew she was destined for my inventory!  With a sleeveless design featuring cute cutouts on the shoulder straps, a gathered waistline, and a just-above-the-knee length skirt, this frock is ideal for these warm, dog days of summer.  I just love the soft pink color and the detail put into the stitching.  Since the package contains sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find a fit just right for you.  For only one Linden dollar and a bit of time searching, this was a very budget friendly addition to my inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Just let me have my fun tonight, a’ight

Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

I tend to forget about Pink when I’m shuffling music which is unfortunate because she’s got some really great songs, like the one that I borrowed my title from for this post. I had to listen to it like 3 times to decide which line to use, I wanted to use all of them! …but that would have been a ridiculously long title. Anyway, today I’m wearing a whole bunch of Suicidal Unborn. There are a ton of free group gifts available and they’re all really great, so I’ve combined three of them here – my top, necklace, and eyes.

The Shirt

Shall we discus my shirt first? Ohhhh the shirt. lol I really like it. Because seriously, who hasn’t felt this way? Especially in Second Life where I would argue that the boys in question are not necessarily more prevalent, but definitely bolder. It’s a bit crass perhaps, but oh so accurate! Because there is only one way to say some things. This particular free group gift has an included HUD containing 6 color options and comes in 5 sizes, XXS-L. It did take a bit of alpha’ing to make it fit but I was able to get a perfect fit easily.

The Eyes

If you’re an eye snob like me, then you have to go to Suicidal Unborn. Seriously, the eyes are gorgeous. There are gacha machines in the store with eyes and lots of really cool styles available, but these are a free group gift! I tried to crop my picture a bit tight so you can see them, they are so so pretty. You can also click the picture to see it in flickr if you’d like to get a closer view. My only issue with the group gift eyes is that there is no catwa applier (the other eyes in the store do have a catwa applier) but that seems like a minor gripe, all things considered. I’m just really terrible, bad, and no good at editing eyes so please excuse me if they’re not fitted quite right. What it DOES come with is classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD fuuuull of colors to choose from! The HUD also lets you change the left and right eye independent of each other, so you can have 2 different color eyes of you want to. It’s really fantastic and so pretty. Did I say that already? Because they’re really pretty.

The Necklace

I love finding quality jewelry and this cool choker totally falls into that category. It has interlocking chain in the front and the back is a leather band. It also includes a HUD that allows you to chain the color of the metal and has 3 options for how distressed the leather is. All as part of a free group gift.

The Suicidal Unborn group is 100L to join but there are quite a lot of gifts available. I would happily have paid that for any one of these gifts, and instead I get ALL of them plus a bunch more. Yes, please! You can find these and all of the other group gifts behind the front desk when you enter the store.

Keeping It All In Balance

Keeping It All in Balance

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share another free gift from Seniha.  In my last post {HERE}, I shared the chevron printed Drizella dress.  While I was at the shop, I also picked up the Jade top, which is a free group gift for the Third Life group.  This cute cropped blouse features a delicate floral pattern scattered over a cream colored background, and a criss-crossed halter style neckline.  It paired beautifully with my black jeans, but I think it would also look lovely with a skirt.  The group has a 10L join fee, but that includes access to a variety of gifts around the grid, so it’s well worth the investment.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

This EMPIRE is LODEd

Goth Love
Hello Fab Free’rs! So I hope I am not alone in the thought that one of the best things about holidays like Valentine’s Day is the discount chocolate you can buy the days following the actual holiday?! Let’s just say I think I’ve had more than my fair share of Valentine candy. That little shameful confession aside, there is one compulsion I am not at all ashamed of, my addition to freebies! Why else would I be here, right? For the first time in much too long I made it out to the EMPIRE main store. I caught notice of their February group gift and picked up the January gift while I was there. Additionally I was excited to see these gorgeous flowers in the LODE group notices.

Take a LODE off FabFree

I could write an entire post and then some about how much I love everything I’ve ever seen from LODE. I won’t, but I could. The recent group gift sent out in the group notices is truly gorgeous. These lovely black freesia flowers are set in a tall slender glass vase. I want to place them in every room of my house. The LODE group is just 10 lindens to join. Yes, I said ten. Also, this gift is a group exclusive color. You won’t find this color of the freesia flowers for sale in the shop. Pay the ten lindens to join the LODE group and check the past notices before this beautiful gift is gone.

Purple Empire
This is Why I EMPIRE

As I mentioned, there are two group gifts currently still available at EMPIRE. Now I know that EMPIRE is one of those shops with a high group join fee.  The EMPIRE group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however, look at these gifts! The dress Pru is wearing is February’s group gift while these incredible shoes are the January group gift. I could really just end my post right there. That would be enough information for me! lol I’m genuinely excited about these gifts though, and I want to tell you more about them starting with the dress.

February Group Gift at EMPIRE 

Considering EMPIRE is known for their shoes, I was delighted to see this sexy spaghetti strap dress is the February group gift. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed in anything from EMPIRE, group gift or otherwise, and this dress does anything but disappoint. The mesh is curvy in all the right places, and fits very well. It comes in mesh sizes to fit all 3 Belleza bodies, and Maitreya Lara. Also included is a color change HUD that lets you choose from 20 unique colors. Additionally, you can change the color of the straps separately for a touch of added detail. You’ll find this gift along with January’s waiting for you at the EMPIRE main store.

January Group Gift at EMPIRE

First I want to start by saying I’m not certain how long these shoes will remain available. I’m not knowledgeable about how long the previous month’s gift will remain available once the new gift is out. EMPIRE does a monthly group gift. That said, run run run before these shoes are gone! I know we’ve seen a lot of caged boots recently, but I have to admit these are drool worthy.  These thigh high shoes have an added optional detail that I love as well. There are tiny studs that you can choose to wear with the boots or leave them off. If you look closely in the above photo you’ll see the studs on Pru’s boots. Included with the gift is a color change hud that will allow you to choose between this dusty purple color and a pastel pink for the main parts of the shoe, there are 8 color options for the sole, and for the studs you can  pick between 3 metallic textures, and 3 gem-like textures. As always with EMPIRE, the shoes will fit Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and TMP, bodies/feet. Needless to say I believe the EMPIRE join fee is well worth it. If you haven’t joined already, do so and score the current gifts, while you also keep from missing out on future gifts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Introducing Shamic Ember, Calle’s newly male av!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce my original SL av to you, the pre-Calle av, when I couldn’t figure out how to remove the torch from my hand at Welcome Island…remember that dang torch? LOL. Anyways,  this is Shamic Ember, and while he did not start off as a he, I wanted to be able to show off some of the great men’s things you can find around the grid, so voila…the magic of SL allowed me to change Shamic’s gender 🙂 Then, all he needed to do was make a few stops, and I think he turned out pretty good. Let me tell you what he got.

comfycouch1

I’m going to start off with the skin. 7 Deadly s{K}ins  is one of those great skin shops that dabbles in both female and male skins, and lately has had many free group join opportunities. Shamic was lucky enough to get into the group during the last free join, and had his pick of quite a few group gifts. The one he is wearing is the August group gift. If any of you male readers out there have gotten yourselves the SLink hands and feet for guys, this skin has those appliers included! This skin is free for group members, but the join fee, as of this post, is L$200. As I said though, there have been an awful lot of free join opportunities lately, so keep your eyes open, you never know, but, with the multitude of back group gifts you can get right now, L$200 is still a great deal.

comfycouch_004

As this is Shamic’s official introduction, he thought he should dress up. Lucky for him, when he joined the MENStuff group, and headed over to the gift lounge, he found the perfect t-shirt…it has a tie! Tie’s totally say dressed up, right? Even if it is just a texture on a t-shirt 😛 This free group gift is from alpha lab, and is a mesh, materials ready shirt, in all the standard sizes as well as a fit mesh version. Now, it is supposed to be texture change, and did come with a HUD, but it was having script issues, so until I hear back from the creator about it, consider it only available with the white tie pattern. Hey, it is still a great find, working HUD or not. The MENStuff group is only L$50 to join, but there are many group gifts from different designers available, so it is totally worth the fee.

comfycouch2

I could not let him wander around without pants, so lucky for Shamic, Nightmare Designs is currently participating in the Anarchy Hunt and has a great outfit as their L$1 hunt prize. Of the outfit, he is wearing the mesh pants and Doc Marten Boots, but there is also a pair of mesh, hanging suspenders and a mesh tank top. All the mesh pieces come in the standard sizes, and the Doc Martens are materials ready. You are looking for a little Anarchy A symbol, and the hint is ‘Why is there graffiti on my wall?’, oh, and there is also a gift for the ladies as well, so everyone should check it out.

Before we end this post, I wanted to quickly mention the cute couple pose couch we are on in that first picture. I wasn’t going to let Shamic do this first post alone, so I needed a pose for both of us to be in, and while searching the multitude of couples poses on the Marketplace, I found this great one. The couch is from OMFG Poses, and is called Relax. It comes with the poses and is totally modifiable to allow you to adjust until you fit together perfectly. At only L$1, it is a great addition to anyone’s pose collection.

Alrighty, that is it for us. What do you all think of Shamic? I think he is going to be great, I may even let him pose on his own next time! LOL. So, until next time, TTFN from the both of us *waves*
