I am back at the Shop & Hop, my dear Fab Folks. I can’t seem to get away! There are just so many wonderful free gifts here. I hope you don’t get bored with all my shoppin’ an’ hoppin’!

Today is this beautiful party perfect gown from Lurve. This is the “Forever Loved” gown in the special Halloween colors. Just look at the stunning work on the lace shawl! It’s outstanding! And the gown itself is equally gorgeous. I’m ready for the fanciest Halloween party SL can throw at me!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – M
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I added another Shop & Hop gift to my look tonight. My jewelry is from Zuri and t’s their free gift for us. The ” Lady Skull Fire Opal” choker and earrings couldn’t compliment this dress more if they tried. Both the choker and earrings are resizable and there is a ‘bling’ feature if you want to sparkle.

My seductive pose is yet another free gift at the Shop & Hop. This is “Nezuko” from Fashiowl and it’s one of three gifts in their present. Two of the gifts are full fatpacks of poses and props and one is a single pose with Halloween props. I just love adding to my pose collection! 

If you haven’t been to the Shop & Hop yet… why not??? There great shopping and more free gifts than you can shake a stick at!! Now, get goin’!

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

It’s Been a Fabulous Friday!

FLF 8/6/21 Cynful Play Time Romper

Happy Friday peeps!! Friday means big sales & lots of goodies. It’s also the start of the weekend and time to partay! I found some great stuff for looking fab and sexy.

Fifty Lindens!

Cynful‘s offer for FLF is the Play Time Romper. It comes with a HUD with 4 ombre shades. It’s sexy & certainly playful. You’ll feel like a million dollars in this.

Sizes

  • Maitreya regular & petite
  • Legacy
  • Belleza
  • Kupra

My darling shoes are the Totem Wedges for the FLF sale @ Astralia. A color change HUD is included. It lets you change all the different components of the shoes like pompoms, bands, laces, etc. You’ll get a lot of use out of these.

Of course I needed hair!! I always need more hair. Maybe I like SL hair better because I can’t do a thing with my RL hair. I scoured the sales galleries and gacha sales to find something. I noticed that Rama Salon had $25L gacha sales. My first pull got me this long & sexy blonde style, Grace. I love it when things come together!

Get out & shop ladies!!

Hachi & I

beach_011

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀

Kitten in the Snow

Kitten in the Snow

Don’t worry little one, I will keep you safe and warm. I’ll also keep myself cute at warm thanks to a few free group gifts at FaMESHed. If you’ve not made it over to FaMESHed yet, it’s well worth it to go. You may have seen the posts Aline has done featuring some of the many gifts at FaMESHed. I also recently showed the FaMESHed gift by Cae. If not, I’ll link them below. For this post I am featuring the free FaMESHed group gifts by Luas and Limerence. FaMESHed runs until December 27th, and the required event group is free to join.

Luas

My full outfit, minus the shoes and socks, is a free FaMESHed group gift by Luas. The scarf, sweater, and skirt are all included in this fantastic free gift. Each piece comes in the pink/black color shown with several size choices. I really love the warm tones to the shades of pink in this outfit. The extra long sleeves I’ve come to associate with Luas are also so cute and cozy for winter.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Limerence

This tousled chin-length hairstyle by Limerence is also free at FaMESHed with the event group tag. It comes in rigged and unrigged versions for easy fitting, and with or without the delicate shimmery snowflakes. This free hairstyle comes in a brown color pack with several brunette tones.

Feed Your Soul

Feed Your Soul

So I’d been having one of “those” days. I’m sure that you know the type I am talking about. No major tragedies, just a lot of little things not quite going the way they should and wreaking havoc on your mood and the plans you’d made. Yep, definitely a Thoseday. Still, I managed to find some zen, take a moment to enjoy some music, a purely indulgent latte, and the company of this silly orange fur-ball. While the day might have been a mess, just that moment and a few freebies from Vision and e.marie managed to salvage my mood. I’d call that a silver lining.

ViSion

Now, about those freebies I mentioned. My bandeau top and cargo pants are both from Vision. I picked them both up at the Vision stop at the Second Life 17th Birthday Shop & Hop. The top is the free SL17B gift, while the pants are a free Vision group gift. You’ll need to wear the Vision group tag (there’s a group joiner there) for the pants. The Vision group also happens to be free to join at this time. The top has a texture change hud with 5 choices. The cargo pants come in the color shown with a hud that lets you change the color of the drawstring and metal parts.

Bandeau Top Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy
Cargo Pant Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

e.marie

My latte with it’s fluffy whipped topping and cute little particle effect is by e.marie. You’ll find it waiting for you at the e.marie stop at the SL17B Shop and Hop event. It’s their free Second Life Birthday gift. The latte is copy, and has a bento hold animation. If you’re like me, after cruising around the enormous Shop and Hop shopping event you’ll be thankful for the sweet pick-me-up!

Fluffy and Fine

Fluffy and Fine

I’m all about the massive fluffy jackets right now, and today I found a fantastic iteration of the relentlessly chic look!

Gacha Covered

This round of Kustom9 is, as per usual, full of things I want to spend my Lindens on.  Amitomo always calls out to me with their awesome creations.  Their Merry and Bright gacha is just 69L per pull, and most of the prizes are complete outfits.  I got the coat and dress on the first pull, and the hair just 2 pulls later.  You’re sure to walk away with a fantastic outfit for very few lindens.  Also, you can make the dress disappear with the HUD if you want to wear the coat on its own!  This gacha comes sized for Maitreya bodies.

Good Luck!

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!

Down Time

Down Time

This is who I am today. I’ve got my tunes, some fur babies, and the cutest little holiday loungewear set from Kais. Never under estimate the power of a little down time, especially during this often hectic holiday season.

You also shouldn’t under estimate the cuteness of this free bra and boy-short set at Kais. Yep, I said free, and there is no group needed. Simply head over to Kais, click the gift vendor and choose “deilver” and the gift will be sent to you. Included with this gift is a color change hud that allows you to pick from 4 colors, and the bra top can be colored separately from the shorts. Have a happy Saturday Fab Free!

Tis The Season

Tis the Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!
