Kiss Me, Baby

Kiss Me, Baby

Pucker Up

If you are a wearer of LeLutka mesh heads, you will want to hustle over to Laura Hurley to pick up this gorgeous applier. Kay comes in the milky tone and with glittery, pink eyeshadow, high-gloss lipstick, and a light sprinkling of freckles and beauty marks. She is a really pretty face, and I love the intense lips. ❤ ❤

I am wearing Kay on my Simone 2.6 Bento head, and I did not have to mod my shape much at all to achieve a look that I liked. I did notice a teensy, shadowy line above the upper lip, which did not appear until I turned on atmospheric shaders to take this photo. It was less noticeable on my non-Bento Karin head, so perhaps my shape was the culprit. :/

The Lara Hurley group is free to join – with many lovely gifts offered throughout the year – so be sure to stop by and give Kay a try.

XOXO

My lingerie – what you can see of it – is part of the very generous Valentine’s Day group gift from Foxes. I am wearing the crop top and bottoms, but there is also an uber-sexy bra and panty set included. Both sets come in three different fabrics and are sized for Maitreya mesh bodies. A HUD is included so you can change the color of the bows and lace.

My necklace is from Amala for Fifty Linden Friday, and as of this writing, it is still available for 50L. The Scarlett Necklace comes with diamonds and a HUD with 4 metal colors included. The Deluxe HUD is also available for 50L and includes 10 additional pearl colors. NOTE: the Deluxe HUD does NOT include the necklace, so be sure you pick that one up first!

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!

Are You a Good Girl?

Up From a Dream?

Are you a good girl?

It’s been a while since I posted a pretty free or low cost find for all of you amazing Fabfree Readers, and I’ve missed you! Real life has been pretty hectic for me this month. But I knew I had run across something special when I found this dress and pendant as part of the Good Girl or Bad Girl Hunt at Wicked.

You search for the little icon, buy it for just 2L and you get both this baby doll dress (which I think could double as a roleplay nightgown) and the beautiful glowing pendant. Somehow this ensemble gives me the impression that you could be either a good girl or a bad girl either one wearing it!

All the sizes you need in one box!

I was really pleased with the assortment of sizes this outfit came in. It is mesh (with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system body) but comes in lots of mesh body sizes as well. For your 2L spent at Wicked you’ll be getting:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Psysique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya Isis, and Venus

Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. 😎

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ❤

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame). 😳

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. 😀

Someone to Watch Over Me

Brooding

Tired and taking a rest…

I’ve been very busy the past week, that I’m just exhausted. So I’m slowing down and taking a little rest. Today’s look comes from HORR Menswear. The Tac-One Sweater is one of the great gifts that can be found for FREE on the Loving Kind Hunt 2. The sweater comes in Sizes XS_XL and for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

My little friend comes by way of  Pop Art. The Milk Shake Cat is a FREE group gift to members and the group is free to join. My pose, Watching You from ENIIPose is a couples pose (/me looks around) but was cute enough to do as a single. I picked this up in-store for just $25L. I’ll see you after a nice long rest. 🙂

A Rambling Gypsy Soul

Rock Those Polka Dots
Hello wonderful readers!  I have an adorable, middle of the week Fabulous Find to share with you today.  I know it certainly brought a smile to my face when I added this free outfit to my inventory!

Rocking Those Polka Dots

Gypsy Chic’s free gift features a sweet, salmon-colored halter mini dress sprinkled with polka dots, and topped with a denim bolero style jacket.  Loosely fitted, with softly draped folds in the skirt, this frock is sure to flatter any figure.  I love the semi sweetheart style neckline, and the retro appeal of the entire outfit.  PinkMelon is a free gift for members of the TeleportHub.com group.  Although the group has a 10L join fee, there are so many goodies bestowed upon members, it’s a worthwhile investment.  The free package includes mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M and L sizes, as well as the requisite alpha layer.  The dress fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly once I adjusted its built-in alpha layer.  To add this adorable number to your inventory, simply activate the TeleportHub.com group tag, journey on over to The Event and Hunt Office, and give the gift board a tap.

Grateful For the Little Things

When I was out with the pupster on one of our shopping jaunts, we moseyed over to EarthStones, which just so happens to be one of my favorite jewelry stores in Second Life.  I meandered around the store, admiring the many baubles on display.  Meanwhile, Rip sniffed around, then excitedly grabbed my hand, led me over to the teleport board, and nosed the “Bargain Loft” section.  He didn’t have to show me more than once!  We popped upstairs, and in no time, I spotted the perfect accessories, priced well within my budget at only 75L each.  The Grateful Necklace and Bracelet, both in Ramble on Rose, echoed the pink and white tones in my dress, and suited my outfit to a “T.”  If you are in the market for jewelry, I encourage you to check out all the budget-friendly adornments available in the loft at EarthStones.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
