Pool Boy

Life’s a  beach…

I’m back in the Aesthetic body to show off another of the hunt gifts from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. Today’s look is the hunt gift from :::boyberry::: . The Pool Boy outfit comes with several different pieces to mix and match looks. This gift includes Swim Trunks, Tank, T-shirt, Open Shirt, Hi-top Shoes, a Sun-visor and a Floatie Ring, all fit for the Aesthetic body. The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt runs though the end of March. I may look for a second job. I know someone that is looking for a new cabana boy…

A cure for rain

Renard

Rain, rain go away

Nursery rhymes are rather common in my real life day to day and that particular one has been a ‘fan favorite’ as of late probably due to the fact that it’s been drizzling or outright storming off and on this entire week. To escape, I’ve been traversing through the sunniest sims I could find and it’s pretty fortunate that there are some great deals at the moment to help make my travels a whole lot less costly. Since I’ve been finding my (virtual) self on the uneven ground of the great outdoors more often than not, I thought it prudent to take advantage of the newest group gift from Reign. The Arianna sneakers are not only gorgeous and great quality two hallmarks that I’ve come to associate with Reign but the gift package also includes two different style variations if you’re wearing them for flat mesh feet and a size that fits mesh high feet as well. As someone who hasn’t gotten around to getting flat feet, it was nice to be able to slip on some sneakers for a change on my Slinks.

Here’s a rundown of styles and compatible mesh feet included in the gift package:

  • Belleza mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Belleza Flat) Trippies (for Belleza High)
  • Maitreya mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Maitreya Flat) Trippies (for Maitreya High)
  • Slink mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Slink Flat) Trippies (for Slink High)
  • TMP mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for TMP bare) Trippies (for TMP Ouch)

If you’re wondering what the style variations are for the flat feet it’s between wearing your sneakers normally, and simply slipping them on to leave the ends folded up under your heel. It’s a nice, slouchy detail to be sure. The gift package also includes a hud that allows you to choose between three different colors schemes (red with white hearts, white with black hearts and black with white hearts) for the body of your shoes as well as the laces (choice of three colors) and the sole of the shoe (choice of two colors)

The Reign group has a joining fee of 250L however you can still pick up older group gifts while you’re there.

Welcome addition

It’s certainly a good idea to stock up on those comfy clothes now that I’m nursing a bad case of wanderlust, though truth be told I would have snapped up this lovely pair of denim shorts from Ibela Store on the Marketplace anyway. There’s a serious lack of shorts or even pants in my inventory (or maybe they’re just hidden under the mountains of pet food) so the Mina shorts with it’s high waist and faded wash are certainly a welcome addition. Priced at only 1L, I was pretty glad that I didn’t have to break the bank too.

Sizing details:

  • Five Standard Mesh sizes (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer for classic avatars.
  • One size for the Slink Physique mesh body.
  • One size for the Maitreya mesh body.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to go spend my time with these two cuties, they’re pretty convinced I’m one of them. I’ll leave with a close up picture of the Arianna Sneakers to give you a better picture of what the style variations are. Have fun out there guys!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/17/2017 – MOoH

MOoH
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs and welcome to this weeks edition of Fab Free Designer Friday! This week’s shop is MOoH and I have to start by saying wow, this store has grown so much in the last few years. I can recall when MOoH was still a very young store with a hand-full of items. Now they have an enormous main store! I’m proud to see how far this cute shop has come. The above photo shows the entrance at the right half of the store. Yes I said right half! haha You’ll find information boards about various events and affiliations here. Inside you’ll find tons of cute quality ladies clothing in styles to suit everyday looks to formals, and most things in between. While clothing does seem to be the main focus at MOoH, there are also shoes and accessories, plus a courtyard full of gachas. You’ll notice the center gacha yard, along with a row of event information on art easels at the MOoH landing point.
More MOoH
After you’ve browsed your way through the gacha machines, which I dare you to not play, you’ll be met with another cutely decorated area of gifts and information. Here there’s a MOoH subscriber so you can stay informed without taking up a group slot. Additionally there is a re-delivery terminal, and all kinds of store information. The best info has to be the group gift info however. You should see the exclusive Fab Free group gift right away. It’s right next to that rainbow Fab Free group joiner. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. Sheidy blogged the super cute gift in her recent post here. You’ll also find other group gifts and the MOoH shop group gifts in this cute corner. The MOoH group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the benefits are almost too numerous to list! There is of course the group gift, which you’ll need your MOoH group tag for and there’s the monthly gift gift card raffle. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the chance to score a 500 linden gift card! Each month there are also group only discounts, a 150 linden gift card gift, there are group only Lucky Chairs, and group members get a 10% discount on the purchase of store gift cards. I’m almost certain I’ve left something off that lengthy list. I definitely encourage you to take the time to explore the MOoH store for yourself, even if it’s just to oogle all the cute decor and window-shop, you won’t be disappointed!

Shocking!

Shocking

Final words….

“I’m innocent! I swear!” Those were my final words before they threw the switch sending 2000 volts of electricity through my body. I have often times said I’m innocent but no one seems to believe me… wonder why?  My shocking new look comes from all over the grid. The Valentine Group Gift Hair come from Tableau Vivant. The gift is free to members, but costs $100L to join. I found the FREE Men’s T-Shirt at LeFreak! by joining the FREE group.

Better than a lazy-boy…

My new favorite chair is a FREE grand opening group gift from Death Row Designs. The Electric Chair has several poses for both male and female death row inmates. The group is FREE to join, so grab one and park it in the middle of your living room…. “What was that?” excuse me… I was told to say…” put it in your man cave…. ”

Hunting through the night…

One of the great things about Second Life is that it’s open all night. If you can’t sleep you can do the same things you would do during the daytime hours. And one of the things I like doing when i can’t sleep is participating in hunts. The Springtime Aesthetic Hunt just started and I’m finding all kinds of goodies with the Aesthetic (and sometimes other) bodies in mind. Today’s look comes by way of Sin Original. I’m showing the Oliver Tee and Derek Jeans for the Aesthetic body, but also included in the $1L hunt gift are styles and sizes listed below:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Classic mesh sizes XS_XL

The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt continues through March 31st. You can find a list of participating stores [HERE]. Happy Hunting!

This EMPIRE is LODEd

Goth Love
Hello Fab Free’rs! So I hope I am not alone in the thought that one of the best things about holidays like Valentine’s Day is the discount chocolate you can buy the days following the actual holiday?! Let’s just say I think I’ve had more than my fair share of Valentine candy. That little shameful confession aside, there is one compulsion I am not at all ashamed of, my addition to freebies! Why else would I be here, right? For the first time in much too long I made it out to the EMPIRE main store. I caught notice of their February group gift and picked up the January gift while I was there. Additionally I was excited to see these gorgeous flowers in the LODE group notices.

Take a LODE off FabFree

I could write an entire post and then some about how much I love everything I’ve ever seen from LODE. I won’t, but I could. The recent group gift sent out in the group notices is truly gorgeous. These lovely black freesia flowers are set in a tall slender glass vase. I want to place them in every room of my house. The LODE group is just 10 lindens to join. Yes, I said ten. Also, this gift is a group exclusive color. You won’t find this color of the freesia flowers for sale in the shop. Pay the ten lindens to join the LODE group and check the past notices before this beautiful gift is gone.

Purple Empire
This is Why I EMPIRE

As I mentioned, there are two group gifts currently still available at EMPIRE. Now I know that EMPIRE is one of those shops with a high group join fee.  The EMPIRE group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however, look at these gifts! The dress Pru is wearing is February’s group gift while these incredible shoes are the January group gift. I could really just end my post right there. That would be enough information for me! lol I’m genuinely excited about these gifts though, and I want to tell you more about them starting with the dress.

February Group Gift at EMPIRE 

Considering EMPIRE is known for their shoes, I was delighted to see this sexy spaghetti strap dress is the February group gift. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed in anything from EMPIRE, group gift or otherwise, and this dress does anything but disappoint. The mesh is curvy in all the right places, and fits very well. It comes in mesh sizes to fit all 3 Belleza bodies, and Maitreya Lara. Also included is a color change HUD that lets you choose from 20 unique colors. Additionally, you can change the color of the straps separately for a touch of added detail. You’ll find this gift along with January’s waiting for you at the EMPIRE main store.

January Group Gift at EMPIRE

First I want to start by saying I’m not certain how long these shoes will remain available. I’m not knowledgeable about how long the previous month’s gift will remain available once the new gift is out. EMPIRE does a monthly group gift. That said, run run run before these shoes are gone! I know we’ve seen a lot of caged boots recently, but I have to admit these are drool worthy.  These thigh high shoes have an added optional detail that I love as well. There are tiny studs that you can choose to wear with the boots or leave them off. If you look closely in the above photo you’ll see the studs on Pru’s boots. Included with the gift is a color change hud that will allow you to choose between this dusty purple color and a pastel pink for the main parts of the shoe, there are 8 color options for the sole, and for the studs you can  pick between 3 metallic textures, and 3 gem-like textures. As always with EMPIRE, the shoes will fit Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and TMP, bodies/feet. Needless to say I believe the EMPIRE join fee is well worth it. If you haven’t joined already, do so and score the current gifts, while you also keep from missing out on future gifts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

All you need is…

All you need is

A pair of pink sneakers!

Since my laptop has continued to be in a good mood (though I was really pushing my luck during this shoot, to be honest) I decided to put those long neglected landmarks to use and visit another picturesque sim. A quiet stroll through beautiful countryside called for proper footwear (wouldn’t want to go tripping and rolling into a ditch) and it was the perfect time to slip on these pink pair of high top sneakers that I’ve accommodated for myself recently from Graffitiwear. Not only are they free but they’re part of the full outfit that you see in the picture above.

This adorable and high-quality t-shirt, skirt and sneakers combination is a gift for Valentine’s Day that Graffitiwear has most generously set out. There is no group tag needed for you to grab this outfit for your virtual wardrobe though since freebies like these can be fleeting and I’m not sure how long this gift will be out for, I suggest you do it ASAP. Here are the sizing details:

Knotted t-shirt:

  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Knotted t-shirt alpha layer

Skirt:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-L)
  • Skirt alpha layer

Sneakers:

  • Sneakers alpha layer
  • Sneakers shoe base

I’m wearing the sneakers without the use of my Slink feet and they fit like a dream. While you’re at Graffitiwear, do consider joining their group (the joining fee stands at 5L) or their subscribers group to stay in touch with the great deals going on at the store. There’s also a steady stream of gifts and other perks that make joining the group worthwhile.

A new day a new hairstyle

While waiting for my blind date to turn up ( the date was a bust, by the way, I’ll tell you the story some other time) I passed the time by looking into the Marketplace and came across this beautiful mesh hairstyle from Fabia. Long and flowing and elegant the Rima hair was just up my alley and it didn’t hurt that it only cost 1L. You’ll also get a hud of thirty natural colors to choose from a fact that certainly made me less huffy that he was running late.

Well, that’s a wrap for today. I have more of this countryside to explore so catch you guys later!

An Evening Stroll

GIZZA February Group Gift

A night on the town…

“Enough work!” she said as I was typing away on another post. “Tonight I am taking you out!” She pointed to the outfit she had picked out for me to wear. As I “suited up” I noticed we matched. Now I understand why she picked out my clothes. She had been shopping today at GizzA and brought home the latest FREE  group gifts for both men and women. The matching Group Gift Feb’2017 are gray and black outfits. The one piece men’s outfit has an attached scarf. The women’s outfit has a matching belt with the GizzA logo. The GizzA group is FREE to join and there are many previous gifts still available!

A walk to the restaurant…

The restaurant is close by, so we decide to walk. It’s a nice evening and the stars are out. Our walking pose is called White Christmas by GlamRus. It can be found on the marketplace for just $1L. That leaves up plenty of lindens for our evening meal.  So, out to dinner we go, and maybe some dancing afterwards… After all, it is my birthday…

Going Momoa…

No you haven’t changed the channel … I’ve (temporarily) changed my look to bring you some of the great gifts from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. I’m starting off the hunt by  riding my way… (crickets) … to the stores on a hunt gift by Reckless Pride Chopper. The Gold Don’t Fear The Reaper Chopper is a custom chopper built and posed for avatars with Aesthetic bodies. I took this baby out for a spin and had loads of fun.

Aesthetic Post 1A

Unbuttoned…

My clothing choice is the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs. The New Jeans and Unbuttoned Shirt for Aesthetic bodies is great for hitting the open road or even along side of it. All the gifts on this hunt are available for just $1L. You can get a look at all the hunt gifts [HERE] as well as slurls and hints for the participating stores. The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt runs from February 15th – March 31st And ladies… don’t get used to THIS… the body is a loaner not a keeper 😉

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.
