Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new-to-me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe.:)

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day!❤

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.

Hope

Hello FabFree Folks!

Hope

I’ve got a lovely new-to-me designer to share with y’all today. This is the latest Group Gift from Rebel Hope Designs. I just love finding new designers, especially when their work is so well done. Like this cute dress: Amy.  Amy comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a whole plethora of appliers -> Maitreya, and the SLink Physique + Hourglass, as well as Belleza’s Isis, Freya and Venus.  The HUD allows for ten color changes and four metals. I could go on and on about the great details all over this dress.. even on the back. But I’ll show it off instead.

Hope (Back detail)

I can see this becoming a staple in my closet!  The best news… Rebel Hope Designs group is free to join!

This Rogue

This Rogue

Now’s the time to add a few manly staples to your wardrobe if you’re a guy in Second life. Astrid and I have shown you gifts from Wicca’s Wardrobe a few times… so hopefully you have the group tag handy. If not, join up for 50L, it’s well worth the fee. Then stop by the main-store and pick up the latest group gift — these Rogue Jeans. You can get them in the male pair that I’m sporting above (it comes in all the standard sizes plus a fitmesh size) or there is a female version also out for the ladies.

If this gift doesn’t convince you to join Wicca’s Wardrobe group, consider the frequent gifts given, plus the plentiful past gifts still out for you to pick up and enjoy.

I added a touch of ‘macho’ to this outfit with a FREE harness from Gabriel, which they have set out as a L’Homme Magazine Group gift. This group is FREE to join, making this gift totally FREE. The harness is mesh and comes in three fits: one for a regular avatar, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit.

Tiki Heat

Tiki Heat 1

I can tell things are heating up for the summer… as there are a lot of summer related hunts and group gifts popping up — like this fantastic palm and tiki inspired bathing suit called “Pamila” that is the current SL Frees & Offers group gift at Darling Haute Couture. If you stop by the main-store and don your group tag (the group is FREE to join), this colorful mesh swim suit in all the standard sizes is yours FREE!

Tiki Heat 2

I really enjoy dressing my outfits up a little, so as usual I looked for some jewelry… and I found an adorable FREEBIE! My Lucky Tiki necklace that I am wearing is one of three tiki necklaces you will get from Crev if you take a peek at their marketplace link. This necklace is transfer only, but it’s high quality and FREE! I’m thrilled!

I also donned a bit of blue lipstick courtesy of alaskametro<3, as they are offering a FREE tester of their Heat matte lipsticks on the Marketplace as well.  You’ll get a system layer lipstick as well as appliers for TMP, EVE’olution, Lelutka, Loudmouth, Nyam, Omega, and SLink… all in this bodacious blue. If you love it enough to buy the full version you can get that [here] and it will only set you back 75L.

I did splurge a bit on my eyeshadow, as I really fell in love with alaskametro<3‘s Creme Duo eyeshadow appliers. Again, you get all the above mentioned head appliers, plus a system layer. The full palette of colors is only 75L if you decide to dive in. If you want to test it out first, you can get a FREE tester [here] first.:)

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

No Harm Done

No Harm Done

I decided to go shirtless for a cause today… to show off some excellent group gifts. If you’re a fan of high quality tattoos in Second Life, you know that finding good ink with all the proper layers at a reasonable cost can sometimes be a challenge. I ran into a new-to-me store that is offering group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

If you stop by Suicide Gurls main-store, you can join the group for 150L. This will give you access to a total of five group gifts, as the monthly group gifts for January through May are all set out for customers to enjoy. Each of these tattoos are unisex and come in a full range of appliers, including Omega, Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as a system layer for system avatars. So your one time fee for the group join pays for itself easily right away. I’m showing you the April gift called “Dagni” in the photo above. The gifts vary widely each month in style… but one thing doesn’t vary… quality. They are all top quality tattoos.

To add to my rugged look, I picked up the FREE L’Homme Magazine Group Gift being offered by No.Match at their mainstore. This group is FREE to join and means you’ll have access to numerous FREE gifts for men at a variety of stores all over the grid. No.Match is generously offering this chin goatie called “No Harm”. I thought it fit the feel of today’s look.
