Suit Up

Free as a bird …

As Love mentioned [HERE], there are so many free items at Free Dove. There is also a hunt for group members. Locate the golden heart to find the Blue Christian Suit, one of the hunt prizes by Marquesse. This one-piece suit includes shoes and comes in classic sizes XS-XL. It’s FREE to join the group so why not hunt for this fabulous prize.

She actually says that a lot, but also told me about the latest group gift from no.match. She also said that I would most certainly like it. And she was right. The no.vault hair comes with a color change HUD to match your choice of color. The gift is FREE to members but the group does have a 50L join fee. Now I have another choice of hairstyle to put in my rotation.

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Crochet Bikini

Yellow Bikini
Oh Hello! Welcome back Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here because I’m really excited about sharing with you today. Stick with me and I’ll tell you all about these gorgeous skins, the hairstyle, and this itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow crochet bikini!

Summer is For Skin

Both of the lovely skins are FREE group gifts for the month of May at Deluxe Body Shop. Each skin comes with a classic system layer skin, and a single omega applier that will work with Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads. You’ll find both gift vendors just inside the entrance in front of the circulation desk. You’ll also need to join the Deluxe Body Shop group. There is a one time join fee of 299 linden for the Deluxe Body Shop group. While you’re there picking up  your group gifts, take a minute to click the group only Midnight Mania boards just behind the desk. Also, you’ll see 24 (yep twenty-four) group only Lucky Letter boards in the same location.

Beach Hair

I love the long beachy waves of this hairstyle by Mutiny in Heaven. Everyone can pick up this Mutiny in Heaven hairstyle for FREE exclusively at The Free Dove. The gift comes in the brunette color, and the blonde color shown. Also there are two sizes of each color. If you haven’t visited the hair section of The Free Dove lately, I’d recommend it. There’s no group to join, and you can pick up this recent addition along with several others.

Yellow Crochet Bikini

I knew I wanted to wear a cute bikini for this post, it is early days of summer and I’m longing for a trip to the beach. This applier bikini from Ashmoot is their exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The package includes appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies.

Fraternity Row

Fraternity Row

The countdown is on…

With only  a few weeks left until summer break, things are beginning to liven up here on campus. The the warmer weather is bringing study groups out to the quad, fraternity pranks are in full swing, and me, I’m just headed to the Union to hang out with friends and grab a bite to eat. All the while, I keep telling myself “Just three more weeks”…

GIVE ME A C….

Today’s collegiate look comes mostly by the way of the Marketplace.I found the Jonathon Outfit by [[>CaKe!<]] for just $1L. Wearing the University Jacket and Sneakers, I was not happy with the system jeans that were included, I stopped by Free Dove and grabbed the FREE JZ- Men’s Classic Blue Jeans by Dolome Designs. Accessorizing this look, I picked up the dollarbie Big Headphones also by [[>CaKe!!<]] on the Marketplace.
Anyone know where a kegger is happening?

Cool Beach Guy

Cool Beach Guy

No Worries…

As I approach the holiday weekend, I am realizing how much I need a break from the stressors of everyday life. I’m ready to kick back and not have any cares… for a few days, at least.  To just hang out on the beach and be that cool guy that nothing ever seems to bother… I could be that guy. I will be that guy!

Too Cool for School….

The Cool Beach Guy Set is a free gift by ILLI found at Free Dove. The pants and shirt each come in classic sizes XS-XL and this FREE gift also includes sandals and resizable sunglasses. This is a cool and comfy way to spend the weekend… now if I just had one of those drinks with the fancy umbrellas…

Can I make a connection?

Can I make a connection?

Another bright and sunny day

Well, it looks like the weather’s perfect for Valentine’s and while Commander’s distracted with chasing butterflies, I decided that it would be a good time to sneak in some headshot practice. If you’ve been following Love’s blog posts (here and here) recently, you’ll have been clued in about the Alaskametro hunt going on right now at Free Dove. It’s not a hunt to pass up on (Free Dove also runs two more free hunts concurrently at their location) but needless to say, I got wholly distracted by all the other free goodies that you can find there as soon as I teleported in. One of these is the Serenity skin by Alaskametro. I was immediately intrigued by this (as I always am when encountering new to me skin brands) and a look at the box told me that the skin gift package would include:

  • One classic avatar skin
  • Lipstick and Eyeshadow classic tattoo layers (worn in picture)
  • Omega skin appliers for mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system
  • Omega applier for both lipstick and eyeshadow
  • One shape

Snapping up the gift and taking a peek inside also lead me to discover that you’ll receive a bald base and eyebrow shaper as well. I’ve tried Alaskametro’s makeup and clothing in the past and the Serenity skin certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of quality. The subtle tones of the makeup provided go really well with such a sweet face and I do adore the light dusting of freckles that Serenity has. It’s certainly a skin to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Speaking of Hunts

There’s another one I’ve just started call the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. It promises to be fun though I hope I don’t get shot by any arrows in the process. One of the stops on the hunting path is Kingswood and they’re offering the Be My Valentine USB necklace as their hunt prize. This adorable and quirky necklace has an inbuilt resizer script for easier fitting and permissions are set to copy if (like me) you’d like to make backups before embarking on any modifications. I love how well detailed this necklace is, from the symbols on the USB to the little heart charm to the tag that reads Be My Valentine, it almost makes me wish I had this necklace in real life as I’m always loosing my USB drives (there’s probably a black hole in my purse or something). The Stupid Cupid Hunt runs from the 3rd of February to the 28th and prizes for the hunt are set to 1L.

Get to the Sale

What’s a holiday without scampering about to a sale? If you love getting more great quality hairstyles for your inventory, Clawtooth is holding a 25% off sale for all hair packs (gachas excluded) from the 13th to 15th February (not much time so hurry down). I’m wearing the Hang It Up hairdo in the picture which is an older style but I’ve had my eye on it for a while and thought that this was a good time to snap it up!

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Valentine’s Day! I got myself saddled with a blind date (pfft) and do you think I should bring Commander along? Some girls carry pepper spray others bring animals that could potentially maul you. Decisions…decisions.

Another Auld Lang Syne

It's Gau GG

We drank a toast to innocence…

I’ve decided to spend my New Year’s Eve at home, away from the parties the noise, and the revelry.  But I am celebrating with a few bottles of champagne and ringing in the new year in the latest group gift from *It’s Gau*. The FREE Happy New Year Shirt  is available to members and the group is FREE to join! I also snagged a pair of  Skinny Blue Jeans, another FREE group gift from *It’s Gau* while I was there.

We drank a toast to now…

And finally, I promise this is the last item from Free Dove for a while… (There was so much stuff!) I found the Stars Camel Sneakers by Shoe-Ddiction at Free Dove. I think I’ll just sit here and remember friends long gone and look forward to my new SL adventures in the coming year.

♫ Just for a moment I was back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And, as I turned to make my way back home
The snow turned into rain ♫

Simply Irresistible

Prey - Men's Vest Duh! Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers JZ- Mens Classic Blue Jeans -

The Love Meter says….

… That I’m “Irresistible“. I was sure it was going to say “Naughty“, but that was apparently meant for someone else. I stopped by Prey and by joining the group for FREE, I was able to get the Men’s Vest as a FREE group gift. I’m still wearing the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men that I showed [HERE]. I am also wearing the FREE Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers I picked up at Free Dove that were provided by Duh!  

Put a Ring On In It

While I was at Free Dove, I also picked up the FREE Unisex Black Trim Diamond Stud Earrings by Glint. That just added a little more sparkle to my already irresistible look. I wonder if I can break this machine?

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Snow

A Shovel Full…

I knew better than to answer the phone at the crack of dawn… “Carson, PLEEEEEEEASE come shovel my snow.” The nice guy that I am gets dressed and heads over to Love’s house to dig her out. It’s a good thing I stopped at Free Dove and picked up some warm clothes. and yes, the FREE in Free Dove means everything is FREE! I picked out the People Puffer Jacket by Kaju and the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men. I also picked up the Mosh Pit Combat Boots by Sn@tch. This is keeping me warm. I’m even working up a sweat.

The snow wasn’t the only thing that got brushed off…

As I’m hard at work shoveling, (proof provided in the picture above) Love is standing at the window, clutching a teddy bear and sipping a cup of coffee. All the while, I’m thinking about after I get finished, Love will offer me a cup.  I finish up and as I head for the steps, I hear “Looks good, Carson. Thanks!” and see the curtains pulled tightly together. I hopped in my old jalopy, (yes it’s running, today…) and changed out of my wet coat and into the Leni Roll Neck Sweater by Tiffany Designs, another FREE gift at Free Dove. I headed down the road and bought my own cup of coffee.  The next time she calls to be shoveled out, I’m grabbing this snow plow. To heck with the shovel!

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!
