I Like You a Latte


I Like You a Latte

Sometimes there’s no place I’d rather be than settled into a comfy spot enjoying the crisp autumn air (assuming it ever reaches my part of the world hah) and a nice hot spiced latte. Especially when my latte is just as happy to see me as I am to drink it! My happy-faced latte is the September group gift at Andika. The dress I have on is a group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by Revelation. I hope you love these fabulous free finds as much as I do. From here either scroll down for the credits, or keep reading for a bit more information about each freebie.

Andika

I love a good latte, and the September group gift at Andika is the sweetest latte around. The gift includes 2 beautifully detailed latte cups with smiling froth faces. The Andika group is free to join, so these sweet lattes can bring some brightness to your fall décor for free. You’ll find them waiting at the Andika store, just wear your group tag and click the gift vendor.

Revelation

The cute red dress I have on is a free group gift by Revelation available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. It’s a fairly short dress so I chose to pair it with some cute leggings. The dress comes in several sizes, and has a texture/color change hud with graphic and solid color options. The Fab Free group is free to join, so this casual dress is absolutely free. To make this gift easier to pick up I’ve included a photo of the gifts at Revelation. The Fab Free gift is the last gift on the right.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cheap Thrills


Sweet Sorcery

It probably is not a good idea to ask a witch if she can turn someone into a frog. She just might show you. It is however a good idea to ask me about the 12 linden gifts by Firelight and Nerdy Girl at the current round of Twe12ve. Most, if not all of the participating shops have a 12-linden item along with their event items and exclusives. I picked up the hair gift by Firelight and the clothing gift by Nerdy Girl. Keep reading for some info about each of these 12 linden finds, or scroll down for the credits. As for me, I’m gonna enjoy this frog!

Firelight

I really like this high ponytail hairstyle by Firelight. The long wispy bangs make me think of Bridget Bardot and that is never a bad thing. This hairstyle is the Firelight 12 linden gift at Twe12ve. It comes in 2 sizes and has a color change hud with the choice of either the dark brown shade shown, or a light brown shade. There’s no need to join a group to get this special price, just look for the little gift vendor at the Firelight stall at the Twe12ve event.

Nerdy Girl

The top by Nerdy Girl I’m wearing is also just 12 linden at Twe12ve. It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. This cute baby-doll style top has a color/texture change hud with 6 solid color choices, and 6 prints. Again, there’s no need for any group, just pay the gift vendor 12 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Phsique), Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Inner Demons

 

Is it Friday yet?! Okay, I know it’s not Friday, however we can take a little break and have a fun adventure among the fantastical scenery at the Inner Demons main store. It’s always fun when a shop has a store environment that is as interesting as the merchandise. Inner Demons is just such a place. You can follow the stone pathways through bright, colorful, glowing flora and fauna to shop for loosely fantasy themed furniture, décor, ladies clothing, and accessories. **Please note that the Inner Demons store is on an adult sim and has some adult themed items in the shop.

Near the landing point at Inner Demons is where you’ll find the “wall of information” as I like to call them. It’s where all of the shop associated events and such are posted. Just a little bit to the right from there, you can join the group, and pick up several group gifts. The Inner Demons group is just 50 linden to join. I think it’s well worth mentioning that the September group gift is a 150 linden gift card which more than makes up for the group join fee.

There are also 2 group only lucky letter boards at Inner Demons, and 1 free for everyone lucky letter board. There is a Midnight Mania board as well that does not require a group. In this same area is where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift also. The gift is a cute heart shaped balloon with pose. Simply wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your free gift. Should you need to join the Fabulously Free in SL group, there’s a Fab Free group joiner on the far left side of that “information wall” I mentioned. Along with the lucky boards, and midnight mania there’s a 25 linden sales item. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Good Bunny


Good Bunny

Get strapped in Fab Free, literally and figuratively. Since it’s been a few days since my last post I’ve got an entire look of freebies to share with you. I really had a fun time with this look. I think it’s a softer style fetish ensemble. The eyes by Petite Chambre, the lipstick by Leronso, the bunny mask by NyDesign, and the dress by Queenz are all free group gifts. Keep reading for info about each free group gift, or scroll to the bottom for full credits.

Petit Chambre

Don’t mind the strange (but kind of cool!) circular line through one of my eyes in the up close photo. I’m not sure why that happens sometimes when I wear certain mesh eyes, but it does. The textures for these free group gift eyes by Petit Chambre is every bit as beautiful and otherworldly as they look in the ad below. This free group gift at Petit Chambre includes appliers only for Catwa mesh eyes, and Genus mesh eyes. The Petit Chambre group is free to join, so all you need is group space for these pretty eye appliers.

(pc) Dreamy Eyes [Group Gift / August 2019]

Leronso

I first want to point out that this free gift at Leronso requires you to have and wear the free Catwa HD lips gift. Which also means you must have a bento Catwa head. This free group gift at Leronso is an applier for the Catwa HD lips. It includes the 6 lipstick variations shown. The Leronso group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. If you do not already have the Catwa HD lips, they are free, no group required. Simply head over to Catwa and use the teleporter to head over to the gift area. There you’ll find an entire goodie bag of Catwa freebies, including the HD lips.

New group gift for CATWA!

NyDesign

This fetish bunny mask by NyDesign is the free group gift that inspired the entire look. This free gift comes with a color change hud with several solid color options for the straps and ears, as well as a few metal options for the studs and rings. The mask comes in a rigged and unrigged version. The unrigged version of the mask can be sized. The NyDesign group is free to join as well, and there are multiple group gifts to be had here also.

Queenz

Finally, this free group gift dress at Queenz was just too perfectly sexy to not share along side the bunny mask! The Queenz store group is free to join, and like the other stores, there are multiple group gifts available. This particular gift comes in several specific sizes, and has a color change hud with 10 preset color choices.
