Bold and Beautiful

I want to take a moment to tell you all that you’re all bold and beautiful! We often don’t hear it enough, but it’s true!  Just remember that you are all beautiful on the outside and the inside. ❤

Before I jump into all the things I have to show you today that Be Bold has out for FabFree at Fifteen, make sure you check out Aline’s post HERE, which shows the free gift available for FabFree group members at the Be Bold store. One must always grab those freebies first, after all. Now, the real reason I’m here today is to show you the 15L and exclusive item Be Bold has set out for FabFree’s fifteenth anniversary. Both items are an “All-in-One Outfit”, meaning that you get matching clothing, shoes, and accessories all wrapped into one box.

Hardly There…

The lovely zara, who is one of our amazing chat mods for the FabFree in-world group, made a hilarious joke last week that I blogged a bathing suit that was “hardly there”. I thought it was funny! Well, I have another outfit that is barely there and it’s pretty cute and summery, too! Be Bold has the full set I am wearing at the top, including the floral pasties, floral bracelets, hair flower, hot pink heels, panties, mini-skirt, necklace, and sunglasses, all in one box for only 15L for FabFree at Fifteen. It’s a great deal and yes… it’s “bold”. It really does look like the summer wind will blow these floral pasties off like some daisies in a field… oops!

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

For the Cool Kids…

Be Bold also has a full-priced item out which makes up the casual look shown in my second photograph shown below. This set includes a great pair of star sneakers, some awesome white-rimmed sunglasses, low-cut shorts, and a crop top. You can change the shorts, top, and sneakers to several different colour and texture options using the HUD included with the set. This is a new exclusive made just for FabFree at Fifteen! Woohoo! This all-in-one outfit costs 249L.

Sizes Included

Have fun, FabFree!

The Queen in Her Kingdom

Coming soon

There’s only two days left of Fantasy Faire, and I poked around the various regions of the event to look for gifts. There are some out, but they are a bit tricky to find. One I found was this free animated golden flower, which I thought was gorgeous. The item is made by Gabriel, and it includes the hand pose and light orbs that float above it. You will find it for free near the landing of the Tenpayo region here. It all ends on May 18th, so go soon!

Queen Natalia

Coming soon

Now it’s time for the feature of my post today, which is this beautiful “Natalia” skin for Lelutka EvoX heads. This is a free gift from ItGirls. I am wearing the skin in “Rose”, but it comes in a fatpack of other dark and light natural shades. Each shade also includes the lovely dark eyebrows.

For this particular EvoX skin, you will need to own a Lelutka Evolution head. All previous Lelutka Evolution heads have been updated to EvoX, so be sure to click the update button in your head folder if you haven’t had the time or interest in updating yet. EvoX is a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend it because the skins are fabulous! Once you have your EvoX head, just click the “EvoX” button on the HUD to put your head in EvoX mode, which allows you to use more detailed skin and makeup options.

Once this is all done, you will notice that with the free skin from ItGirls, that the ears and face skins are separated. You need to wear a separate tattoo for the ears. So you then need to find the matching ear skin to go with the face skin. All of the face skins and ear skins are included in the free gift from ItGirls. You can also get a pack of free EvoX ear skins, which is available for all to get on the front desk at ItGirls.

Sizes Included (ItGirls skin & ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

What about that sneaky neckline?

I’m sure some of you have noticed that nasty neckline that can pop up when you wear an EvoX head skin that doesn’t include a body skin. Not to fear, for Velour is here. Velour has a package of free ear skins and neck fixes for EvoX heads. To get the package, look on the front desk to get the pack for free. No group join is needed. The neck fixes work perfectly to blend the ItGirls skin with another body skin. I am currently wearing a body skin from a different creator entirely, one of 7 Deadly S[K]ins‘ BOM skins in the Caramel tone, and it blends so smoothly! These neck fixes should work with any companies that use Velour tones in their head skins and you should have few problems wearing the head skins with a different body skin.

Sizes Included (Velour neck fixes and ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Well, that wasn’t complicated at all! 😉 If you have any questions about EvoX skins feel free to post your queries in the comments.

Black Spring

Coming Soon

This whole spring season has been filled with pastel shades and bright colours. However, who says we can’t have a darker spring season too? I have a hunt that has some darker prizes available for you, and I wore black to match the theme!

A Hunt at Ostara’s Altar

There is yet another hunt out this month at the hunt taking place at Ostara’s Altar by Dark Passion Events. My pretty flower crown is the hunt prize from [QE Design]. It includes a hud that allows you to change the colours of the roses, leaves and circlet to six different options. It’s a gorgeous item! All prizes on the hunt at Ostara’s Altar cost 10L each. This event ends on April 30th. You can see all of the previews of the hunt prizes right here.

Funny Slippers

The best type of slippers are funny slippers. Tooty Fruity has some fun slippers out for their April VIP group gift, which features bunny head slippers. The slippers include a colour hud to change the bunnies to several different colours- including pastel and light shades as well as the black I chose to wear. Tooty Fruity is always so generous to their group members, handing out presents every month and gifting MM board prizes regularly. Their group currently costs 49L to join and it’s well worth it!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

That’s it for now, FabFree! See you again soon,

Hi Fab Free! I’m back with some beautiful landscape/scenery finds from Simply Shelby. The setting in the above photograph is almost entirely made up of either one of the 30 Linden Saturday items at Simply Shelby or the equally awesome and completely free April group gift also at Simply Shelby. The only reason I say “almost” is because that small patch of green grass is not included. Keep reading for all the details about each fabulous offer at Simply Shelby.

30L SaturdaySimply Shelby has several offers for today’s 30L Saturday items. Generally speaking, I believe Simply Shelby does leave these items up until the following Saturday, however I wouldn’t guarantee that, so do not miss these just in case! I picked up her Druid’s Cave both because I love it, and of course because I really wanted to share it with you! This set includes the cave, with the added vines, candles, the little crystals and mushrooms, along with the Druid Priest, the alter, and an additional vine. The Druid Priest, the alter, and the vine are all copy, so you can rez out as many as you like, or leave them out all together. The cave is copy as well. No group is needed for this awesome set, just teleport to Simply Shelby and run over to the “Sales” building where you can purchase this set for just 30 linden along with several other fantastic items.


Simply Shelby Mystical Druid Cave

April Group Gift – The free April group gift at Simply Shelby is this lovely maple tree with surrounding floral landscape, rocks, and the adorable bunny all together. This item is no transfer, however it is copy and modify so you can adjust it to your liking if you so desire. Just be sure to make a copy first! To get your copy of this free group gift, you’ll need the Simply Shelby group tag. The group is currently free to join. Also, there are quite a few other group gifts also available. The Simply Shelby group gifts are located in the VIP/Hunts & Events building alongside the Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards.

Here are the details:

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus

A Day at the Beach in LUAS, *Chipmunk* Clothing and Kakia Designs!

Today was so beautiful, I decided to pack a bikini and head to the beach! I slipped on my LUAS TYENE WHITE Mesh Camisk/Dress (50L on the Marketplace), grabbed my Kakia Designs (NH) Signature Newport Bag (FREE on the Marketplace), and threw my lotion, glasses and little *CC* – Mesh Bikini – Gift Red (1L on the Marketplace), from *Chipmunk* Clothing Store, in it and headed out to Baja Norte.  This adorable dress from LUAS is so versatile…you can wear it as is or you can wear the sheer version…it also comes with the beautiful chest ribbon, flower crown and two arm bracelets!
~A Day at the Beach~The beach was packed with people, birds and other wildlife and it was hot…so I ducked into a building and changed into my *CC* little red bikini; so I could take a swim and cool off.  I tucked my sundress into my  FREE Kakia Designs signature Newport Bag and took off for the surf!
~A Day at the Beach~
I had a blast swimming, surfing, building sand castles and watching the pelicans in the surf.  Good thing I did my nails this morning with my FREE FLAIR  (no group join) Fingernail/Toenail Slink Appliers A/E …in Watermelon…they looked perfect with my dress and bikini!

~A Day at the Beach~
Happy Shopping and see you at the beach! ❤ ❤

Oh What A Charming Hunt Ricielli Has!

Shakes fist feverishly at RL for pulling me away from writing on the blog, I miss you all. Thankfully the dust has settled, and I am here to display some goodies!

CHARMING HUNT

R.icielli has done it again! They currently have the Ricielli Mesh- Charming Hunt for $15L per item, and there are 20. Yes yes, I know its not free, but the quality of these items for that price, makes it darn near free, pretty much a steal! So here is a preview of some of the items, on my oh so curvy shape.

nov10_1_012

The first is the R.icielli Aurora Mesh Dress- Charming Hunt Item #04. I am definitely a fan of the attention to detail and the texture of the dress. Now I choose to wear the dress with classic black pumps, but you can also pair this with some nice thigh high boots.

nov10_1_014

The next item is the R.icielli Mesh – Papi Jumpsuit/floral Hunt Item #19. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of floral prints, but this jumpsuit changed my mind. I love the sexiness of the plunging neckline, but the sweetness is added by the flowers and yellow belt.

The hunt isn’t difficult, you do not need to be the next Sherlock Holmes, to find these items through out the store!

UPDATED: I AM FROM AUSTRIA thanks GaZoV DeSiGnS & S.Y.D.

Finally, I have to do it *sighs* Blame it all on Greta Gazov! 😉

Well, right now this “football-soccer-championship-thingy” is going on here in my hometown Vienna. Honestly, I´m not interested in any sports at all and I´m not familiar with European Football (it´s boring ….. and our guys are …. uhm *coughs*). If you want to know more details about it, please ask Greta Gazov, or my hubby *grin*

Greta was so kind to drop me her “football stuff”, thanks a lot! I´m doing this post only for the reason I love love love Greta`s umbrellas (parasols), and because I´m from Austria, of course *smiles*

Tp over to Greta`s store GaZoV DeSiGnS Isla del Mar 128, 162, 28 and you will find 5 boxes: GOAL contains purse and parasol in white, black and green and matching bangles. GoGER (Germany), GoNETH (Netherlands), GoAUS (Austria) and GoSW (SWISS) have parasols, hair flowers and bangles inside, matching the regional colors of the countries. Hmmm, looks good although you are not a fan of any sports 🙂

Also there´s a cute teddy as group gift 🙂 Go to “all” tab in search, use the phrase “gazov”, it´s the 3th choice, join the group (free), go to notices, click the one dated 5/30/2008, subject “group gift”. Save attachment, you are now proud owner of a box with cute teddies in many colors from GaZoV DeSiGnS.

The top I´m wearing is the free StarTop-light red by Sams Secrets, Bara 211, 130, 22. Sams Secrets always offers pretty items! Pants are part of four YIP´s (always free!) Black&White Suit outfit. I´ve got it from GNUBIE Store, Powder Mill 121, 142, 34. Hair is by BP* BettyPageVoyager bigbombHair, a Lucky Chair prize. Skin is WheatSkin MakeUp00 (1L) by SYD/Laynie Wear.

Done! But let me insert Greta Gazov´s notecard *grin grin grin*. Oh, and take a look at her blog 🙂

“The rest of the world might not care very much but here in Europe we’re getting prepared for the Euro 2008, the European football championship and of course we are helping you to get into the right mood. We have made a set of three purses (black, green and white) and matching parasols that poof little footballs as well as two sets of bangles in black and white. Also available in our store but only until the German team drops out of the competition. No German win – no freebie, it’s that easy 🙂 Goaaaaaaal”

“Even more cutsie football stuff has arrived in our store now. We have prepared some special fan sets for Germany, our wonderful host countries Austria & Switzerland as well as for our Dutch neighbors – well, they should know why we suddenly love them so much *grins broadly*. All sets are available for zero Lindens and wil be up for grabs until the end of the championship. We wish our neighbors good luck in the ongoing competition.”

Sorry for the long post but I also have to show you what SySy Chapman, designer and owner of S.Y.D, dropped me right now. More funny fan stuff 🙂 No freebie but worth every linden. Spend 10 L and You get a flag, a belt (male + female), a hat (the hat is aaaawsome, can´t stop laughing) and a shirt FOR FREE. My pets are totally floored *grin* Now I can´t hide it no longer! I´ve flagged my parcel, I´m from Austria 🙂 Read details on SySy`s blog and then tp over to S.Y.D and get your football gear pack (there are 10). Thanks, SySy!
