Snapshot_006
Good evening Fabulouses!  I have yet another post for you tonight!  I must be on a roll ;D.  Tonight I am showing you the Lyrical B!zarre Templates Daze Dress that you can pick up for free by locating the hidden cupcake at FabFree Headquarters for The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt.  If you happened to pick this dress up within the first week of the hunt, and you opened up the package to find that the alpha layer was missing, please do go back and pick it up again.  The designer has added in the missing alpha and the dress is simply adorable!

The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt ends tomorrow, September 16th and midnight SLT, so make sure you take some time to pick them all up before they are gone for good!  If you’d like to see the full prize preview, you can visit THIS LINK, which is a detailed hunt page that Tiana put together for us!

Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course 🙂

pinup2

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement 🙂 Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find 🙂 The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

There are really great gifts in the hunt and in this post I am going to be showing you a few of them! My Dress is the hunt prize from Trinite and is a gorgeous deep red slinky number that has a deep cut cowl neck line and a low back. It is Fitmesh which means it will adapt to your body shape rather than you having to adapt your shape to fit the dress.  In the next picture you can see a better view of the front and just how sexy it is.

Untitled

My Skin is the hunt prize from Lumae and is the Odette Skin in a really lipsmacking make up especially for the event called Birthday Kiss! I am sure there will be very few who will be able to resist a smooch from you while wearing this! It comes in two tones. I am wearing Tone 4 – Honey but there is also a darker tone called Tone 6 – Cookie which is equally as beautiful! They also come with freckle versions! If you are looking for a yummy cake for your own celebrations then you can pick up the “I Love You” cake by Aphrodite as their hunt prize.. it is delicious as well! Yum!

Untitled

The beautiful and sparkly September Birthday Sapphire ring is the hunt prize by Dressed By Lexi and is quite a stunning rock! The depth of blue is really captivating. My adorable nails are the Birthday Bow Nails that are the hunt prize by Dirty Little Secret and come with a HUD with several different colours on. I went for the red to match my dress! Below is a picture of the HUD so you can see the other colours available.

And as a bonus little tip.. The shoes I am wearing in the first picture are the Allure Shoes by REIGN and although are not part of the hunt, they are currently on offer as part of the Saturday Sale.. now, I am aware it is Sunday! Soooo… I don’t know how much longer these will be on sale so get over there quickly to be able to grab these while they are only L$75 a pair!

The absolutely charming Coffee shop set is made up from the La Petite Joie Cafe set by 8F8 and it can be found in their gacha at The Arcade Gacha!

Purple : It’s what to wear…

I’m back!! I know, I just posted a few hours ago, but I was running around FabFree grabbing birthday cupcakes and just had to show you some more goodies that you can find there! Both items I am featuring are free, all you have to do is find their cupcakes at the FabFree HQ. There are preview pictures for all the gifts, posted HERE, as well.

bdaypurple1

Starting with the super cute  Sporty Romper in Purple from Kaithleen’s. This is a one piece, mesh romper, and comes in the standard sizes. I just love the bow at the waist, and I can totally see how easily this could be dressed up with some fancier jewelry and a pair of killer heels. I, obviously, went for the more laid back look 🙂

bdaypurple3

Lucky for me, the other birthday gift I wanted to show you is also purple…well, part of it anyways! This stylish and sleek hair is the gift from enVogue, and is called Jasmine. The purple ombre on the ends of the hair is so lovely, and it goes so nicely with my outfit. I have a very obvious purple theme going on here!

bdaypurple2

With some comfy sandals, and a fun necklace, I am all set for a relaxing bikeride…or maybe I’ll head over to the little coffee shop across the street. Either, or, I am ready for anything.

Make sure you head over to the FabFree HQ, if you haven’t already, the birthday hunt only runs until the 16th, and there are too many free goodies to be had to miss out!

Until next time…TTFN!

A little bit of birthday magic in India

I just love the Indian culture, especially the clothing! All the beautiful colours, with bold patterns. Heaven for a girl like me.

india1

So how excited do you think I was when I saw a picture of the new group gift Saree from AnaLee Balut? The ALB PREMA saree mesh dress is absolutely gorgeous, and best of all, it’s free! You need to find the LAMU group joiner at the store first, and then once you join for free, you need to head HERE, as this group gift is in a different area. The dress is one piece mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. The lovely little forehead jewelry you see better in a picture below, is also part of this gift. What you can’t see are my shoes. There is a pair of shoes included, in a SLink flat version, and a standard SL av foot version too.

india3

The lovely jewelry set I chose to go with, as no Indian outfit is complete without jewelry, just so happens to be in one of the FabFree 7th birthday cupcakes set out at FabFree HQ! This elegant necklace, earrings and bracelet set was generously donated by Chop Zuey, and I think it really goes nicely with my saree, it even has the same sort of look as the forehead jewelry. This gift, along with more than 50 others, is free, you just have to find it.

Now, I am sure you are wondering about the beautiful skin I am wearing.  It is the current group gift from Pink Fuel, the group is L$250 to join, you just need to go into the notices to get it. The darker tone is Hazel, and the lighter tone is Peach. As Mochi Milena, the owner/creator of Pink Fuel, said in the notice this was sent out in, the makeup palette on these skins is a little bit different from her usual style. If you are familiar with  Pink Fuel skins and makeups at all, you know that she likes to go with brighter and more youthful looking makeups. The lovely brown tone to this makeup is definitely a bit older looking, but don’t worry, older does not mean old 😛 In the pictures, the bigger picture is how I would wear this skin after a little magic (which I will show you below), with the 2 smaller pictures showing how the skin is, which is with slightly lighter than I prefer eyebrows. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all. I adore these skins 🙂

india4

What is the magic I mentioned? Well, both Pru and I recently showed you a few of the group gifts that were sent out in the MOCK Cosmetics group a few days ago, but there were so many, that we barely made a dent in them. My magic is one of the other gifts that was sent out. It’s called [mock] Tintable Brow Out experiment secret menu item (so, just in case this is actually supposed to be secret, we’ll keep it just between us 😉 ) There are 2 versions, the one I am using, which starts out with a pale skin-tone colour, and a non-human version, which starts out white. This is a makeup layer, so, you add it from your inventory, and as you can see in the pictures, it will cover up the eyebrows on the skin you are wearing. You then have to edit that makeup layer to change the colour. While it can be a bit tricky, it is not impossible. If you look closely at the 3rd picture, it is not seamless, with so many skin designers out there, it would be impossible for it to be, but…it comes pretty dang close, looking like it is just shading on your face around the natural hills and valleys of your eyebrow area. Add your own makeup layer eyebrows, and voila…my eyebrows are now the ones I normally wear only on skins that come with a no-brow version. I think this is great for those of you who like wilder colours of hair. If you can find eyebrows that are the same colours, you can use any skin you want and still have them match. This one gift alone, for me, is well worth the L$250 join fee for this group.

OK lovelies, That is it for my Indian Inspiration post. This is why I love SL, there are so many people from all over the world in our little virtual world, so many cultures for you to experience that you might not otherwise have a chance to encounter. I hope you enjoyed my trip as much as I did. Until next time, TTFN!

1 Hundred Times Just Darling

Snapshot_001Hey Fabfree-ers! The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt is underway as of today and FabFree Headquarters has been packed with hunters all day!  It is so exciting for me to just sit on the bench and see all of your familiar (and not familiar yet) faces spying around for those little free cupcakes!

The group chat has been hopping today with hunt buzz, and one of our Fabulous group members said the cake I was passing out had a shoe in it.  WHUT?  I would never…  Hey – I just pass the cakes out – Tiana made them!  I couldn’t resist putting a shoe in my example of the cupcake hunt icon today in my photo after that entertaining conversation we had this afternoon.  This is probably one of those “had to be there” situations, but those who were there will know what I’m talking about ha ha.

So… In this post I am featuring three of the FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt Prizes!  I am wearing the Grace Dress by 1Hundred, the Just Darling Precious Crown and the Birthday Nails Slink Appliers by [free bird].
