Love Me Lingerie_001

Drama!

Drama, drama, drama! That’s what these amazing backdrops from Kraftwork make me think of! I got them as a group gift by stopping by the store. There are currently two set out and each has a hud to change it to three different colors. One includes this chair and a posing stand! They even have the lights that filter through.

These are great if you are a second life photographer or just want to snap some photos. The Kraftwork group is a mere 25L to join and you can pick up these great backdrops yourself!

A little love…

I have a little love left over from February! I stopped by Elegance Boutique and discovered that they had out a lovely lingerie set for free with your free group join. It’s two pieces with the undies and the top and has cute details like the heart pasties. It comes in several mesh body sizes. I’m showing off the Maitreya size.

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

So I mentioned that I had a date planned for later, little did I realize that my date was going to be shopping at The Point! My friend took me on a little excursion to this fun event and I was pleasantly surprised to find gifts at nearly every little shopping stall. Some of the gifts are 1 or 2L, a few are free, a couple of them go for 10L. All of them were kinky and fun! I wanted to show off a couple to you here!

His and Hers…

If you run inside the Applique Chic booth at the event, you’ll find a variety of nice clothing. In order to demo their sexy fetish tops, they have out a very nice gift… these Kinky t-shirts that come in a his and hers version. You can pick up the box for just 1L and if your with a date he can get his for the same price!

Kickers.

I was kicking around the event stores at The Point and stopped by Look@Me and feel in love with one of several 1L gifts they had setting out. I grabbed their In-Style January Gift heels for just 1L and put them on to go with my mood. They come in black with gold accents and a fantastic heel and will fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet!

Fetish

Queen_001

“I have a fetish for damsels in distress.”
“Don’t be sexist.”
“Not at all. My services are also available to gentlemen in distress. It’s an equal opportunity fetish.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Fetish…

Rather your a damsel in distress or a gentleman in distress, the outfit I’ve put together with the Womenstuff Hunt is sure to hit the spot if you’re in the mood for a little… fetish. Layer on a sexy full body tattoo and top it with a sexy white latex body suit that is as form fitting as it gets, and you’re in for a steamy night.

Get inked.

I hunted down that little red t-shirt at Taox Tattoo and bought it for 0L for my full body “Queen” tattoo. It covers back and front and down the hands and up the neck onto the chin as well. It’s highly detailed and comes in a variety of layers including:

  • Belleza
  • Brazilia Doll
  • Catwa
  • Lelutka Tats
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Omega Face
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Vista Hand

Suited up.

I finished off my hunt by checking out Razor, where I picked up my form fitting white latex body suit for free. It was also part of the Womenstuff Hunt. It barely covers up all the necessities, and is hot hot hot with its little silver rivets where the material straps meet. It comes in fits for Maitreya, Isis, and Freya to cover your mesh body needs.

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

In a Naughty Mood…

Lets Play_001

I’m in a naughty mood today… and I decided I wanted to play… darts. I also did a naughty hunt. But came up with some most excellent free gifts that many of you may want in on even if you’re a perfect angel 😉

Being Naughty.

Now though Oct. 30th, you can get in on the Femdom hunt. You’ll be hunting down a little red shoe and the gifts are free if you are willing to brave what are mostly adult areas (there are a few stores that are not adult, but pre-warning, most of the hunting areas are adult). I picked up several very nice gifts that I wanted to share with you.

The Dress.

If you’re admiring my beautiful free purple corset gown, it is a free Femdom Hunt gift courtesy of Roped Passions. Hunt down the red shoe at the main-store and ladies it is yours to dance, wine and dine, or… kick up your heels in. Whatever suits your fancy. There’s also a men’s gift in the box that was too naughty to show. So if you want to bring your fella in for a naughty tee shirt (it’s really not PG-13) 😛 … feel free!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Necklace.

Night Wish Toys isn’t just for toys… I picked up my free pretty little bauble necklace as part of the Femdom hunt there by hunting down the red shoe at their main-store. Included in the box is a necklace for both men and women. I’m showing of the ladies gift in the picture above. I didn’t get a close up, but if you click into flicker you can zoom in to get a glance at this leaf shaped silver pretty.

Let’s Play?

I also picked up two excellent pieces of furniture to add to my home. One is from the Men Only Hunt, but I really love playing darts… and hey! A woman can play darts too! Just stop by Bad Unicorn and hunt down that free mustache and you get the 3 prim dart board as well as a throwing dart you can hang in your home… or den… or where-ever!

Have a seat!

I had to also show off my new parlor seat. This free Lyla chair by Roawenwood as part of the Femdom Hunt is so good that it actually took a spot in my own linden home on a permanent basis.

It includes single animations as well as Femdom animations and is only 5 prim. It includes enough animations that it rivaled any other Femdom chairs I have come across for quality… and it is free! It is worth hunting down that little red shoe to have this one in your home if you are into the lifestyle. Sorry, I can’t show you any of the animations! But it’s worth checking out if this is your thing! To top it off, it’s just plain pretty! Enjoy!

Soft Golds

Fall Colors_001

The weather has cooled down the last few nights where I live… cold winds ushered in by thunderstorms. It’s made me think that fall will perhaps be here sooner rather than later. But that’s okay. I’ve always enjoyed the autumn breezes and warm browns and oranges that mark the season. It’s not quite cold enough for sweaters yet, but it’s cool enough I’m wanting to start my fall wardrobe, so I picked up a gift that tickled my fancy for that!

Soft Golds

I stopped by Guilia Design and picked up the Third Life Group gift called “Cherry Gold”. I’m not too sure about the name as the gift includes these great black leather pants plus this gold tones snake skin top and a separate mesh belt, but I’m going with it because I really love the outfit!

Cherry Gold comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus quality alpha layers for system bodies (if you need it). Remember, the Third Life group is only 10L to join if you are not already in it, so this gift will only cost you 10L. And the Third Life Group gives you access to gifts in stores all over the grid, so it’s well worth joining!

Fall Colors_002

Change of Pace

I don’t usually show off collar gifts, as they are not my personal style… but I love the quality of clothing and items at Salt & Pepper and I think the creator turns out some truly beautiful gifts. I wanted to make sure and share this new gift that Salt & Pepper has out for group members, as it’s incredibly well made and really lovely.

The “Toy” Collar comes in two versions “His Toy” or “Her Toy” and both are fully customizable with a hud that allows you to change the color of both the leather and the metal. (I’ve included a picture of the advertisement below to show the options). It is also resizable making it unisex as well. You’ll need to click the menu to find the resize option. It is RLV enabled for those who are interested.

The Salt & Pepper Group does have a one-time join fee of 300L, however there are quite a few very nice past group gifts still out for you to enjoy, and the creator is generous about putting out new, quality group gifts as well, making the fee worth it in my opinion!

Catch Me in Your Dreams

Catch Me In Your Dreams

More and more amazing designers are offering amazing group gifts for the FabFree Group at their in-world stores. House of Ruby has now offered up a fashionably sexy gift for us fellas that gentlemen will want to get in on. These Torn Boxers for Him come in system layers as well as Slink or Omega Huds. You also get two versions… the “mesh” version I’m showing in the picture above, or the slightly riskier “clear” version that I’m not showing 😉

To pick up this generous FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. Then teleport to House of Ruby and pick up your FREE gift.

Pixel Box is also currently hosing a FREE in-store Group Gift hunt. What does this mean? It means there are 4 group gifts set out that are FREE to group gift members. Join the Pixel Box group FREE, wander around the store and find the gifts and they are yours FREE. I’m sporting the Gothic dreamcatcher necklace in the picture above. I’m pretty sure it’s meant for a female avatar but I discovered that with the resize option, it’s very versatile and manages to be nicely unisex. I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.
