She’s Like the Wind

(red)sand _5000 members gif male coat and scarf

Just a Fool to Believe…

I’ve had ’80’s movie soundtracks playing in my head all weekend…. (Thanks, Pru and Love   >.< ) And Dirty Dancing is one of my “compromise chick flick movies”.  I don’t mind cuddling up, watching Jennifer Grey (big time ’80’s crush) and singing along to the music. You can’t help but like this movie because we all know you don’t put Baby in the corner.

…I have Anything She Needs

Today’s gift is from (red)sand. For reaching 5000 members, they are celebrating by giving the members this FREE Coat and Scarf set. The mesh coat comes in the standard sizes XS-XL  and the scarf can be adjusted to get that perfect fit. the (red)sand group is FREE to join. Find the gift in the crate on the bottom shelf under the red slink sign. There’s also a special gift for the women!

Say Anything

Say Anything

 In your eyes, I am complete…

After seeing Pru getting Footloose and Love Dirty Dancing, I thought I’d play along with my take on Lloyd Dobler from one of the best movies of the 1980’s, Say Anything. This well known iconic pose of Lloyd holding his boombox (yeah, had one back in the day) above his head, belting out Peter Gabriel’s  In Your Eyes is one of movie’s most recognizable scenes. Lloyd found David’s Black Coat as the FREE prize on the Midnight Mania Board at Tiar.  He also picked up the FREE Group Gift Men’s Mesh Steel Blue Austin Tee by Cold Ash at their display at the Men Only District

When I want to run away, I drive off in my car…

I followed Pru and also played the gacha at [Since1975] and was lucky enough to get the rare BoomBox/C on my first try. (/me cracks his knuckles) My car, a Ferrari, (much better than Lloyd’s car in the movie) is a FREE gift at Sinsity Race Track. Take a spin around the track. It only takes 10 minutes.

♫ But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are… ♫

Cute Curvy Classy

Cute Curvy Classy

Pastel Dream

Have you ever had rainbow ice cream before? More specifically Paddle Pop rainbow ice cream? It was my favorite growing up (the only flavor of ice cream I’d consume actually) and one look at this pretty pastel offering from Glasgow Grin had me nostalgic for those days all over again. Personally, I’ve always found pastel shades to have a rather dreamy quality about them and when they’ve been mixed together so artfully I find them quite irresistible. Such was the case for the Cutey Dress that’s out right now at Glasgow Grin for the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2. This comfy sweater dress comes in sizes for ebody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass) and Maitreya mesh bodies as well as one standard mesh size for those of us classic avatars. I’m wearing the standard mesh size in the picture above and was pretty pleased with the alpha layer that’s provided as it helped with the fit quite nicely. Cute, curvy, classy indeed! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 are for 1L and the hunt runs till the 31st of January.

Accessorize

Did you guys make New Year resolutions? It’s a little dorky I know but I made a couple for Second Life as well and one of which is to try to pay more attention to the little details when putting together outfits. The other is to clean out the inventory but we’ll see how well that goes. Anyway, I’m on Oxide’s mailing list and discovered that they’ve put out a great pair of hooped earrings for their sub-o members. You can never go wrong with this classic design (especially when wearing a shorter hairstyle) and this well-made pair from Oxide come with a color change hud as well. If you’re not in the mood to stick to gold there are nine other colors to choose from as well. Some other perks of being in Oxide’s sub-o group is that you’ll have access to past sub-o gifts as well (that you can snap up for free) and of course it doesn’t take up those precious group slots so it’s certainly worth checking out.

All nice and manicured

If you’ve been following the blog closely, you’d have seen that some Fabulously Free in SL group gifts is being changed out. It’s really exciting to see what our generous designers have in store for us next! Needless to say, I snapped up the new manicure and pedicure sets from Hello Dave in a jiffy and am wearing the Fairy French set in the picture above. I love the clean, glossy colors and truth be told its stores like Hello Dave that make getting Slink hands really worth it. Hello Dave nails are compatible with Slink hands and hands using the Omega system. To add this set to your inventory for free, simply wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag or if you’re not in the group yet copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . As always the group is free to join! If you’re still not convinced, click {HERE} for a clearer picture on these gorgeous nail sets.

New face for a new year

Last but not least I stopped by 7 Deadly s{K}ins to pick up their January group gift. Carson blogged about the men’s gift {HERE} and I’m happy to report that the gift for ladies is packed full of goodies as well. In the gift package you’ll get:

  • Classic skins in seven tones (caramel, cotton, oak, pineapple, sand, taupe, and walnut)
  • Omega body appliers in the tones listed above
  • Omega head appliers in the tones listed above
  • Slink appliers
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers
  • 2 shapes

7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group join fee of 225L but as you can see it’s well worth the lindens. Not only are their gifts generous, but the faces on their skins are always so gorgeous.

That’s a wrap! I’ve still got a hankering for some rainbow ice cream but luckily it’s not too late to skip on over to the corner store. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice – Simple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

Sitting Pretty

Hunting for Frosting.

I made a couple stops along the trail of the Frosting Hunt and found a couple of gems to share with you. My first stop was Prism, where I picked up my outfit. It includes this excellent pair of suede pants and the lovely off the shoulder pink sweater. Each piece is separate and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer. For just 1L and a little hunting time to find the snowflake, this gem of an outfit can be yours.

Sitting pretty.

I also stopped by Kitty Creations because I was in need of a furniture pick-me-up. The Frosting Hunt prize there is this lovely braided rug as well as this nicely patterned black ottoman which includes quite a few very nice unisex sits. The rug is copiable, but the ottoman is no copy. However for only 1L, if you want more than one of this gorgeous ottoman, it won’t break the bank to hunt down the snowflake and buy more than one copy of this Frosting Hunt prize at Kitty Creations.
