The Unforgiven

Kicked Out

But I Called….

… and told her I was stopping for a beer after work with the guys. And yes, I know it is New Year’s Eve and that we HAD plans. But, you know how it goes… time just got away from me. So, as I walked through the door, she was madder than that bear in The Revenant. She told me to and I quote “Get the @#&* out of MY (thought it was ours) house and don’t come back!”. Yeah, I was a few hours late, but we still had time to make the party. Now I’m sitting here in the cold and contemplating just what I did wrong. I’m glad I grabbed the Hunter Jacket by BRAVURA Boite Noir to keep warm. You can find this as a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge. While I was there I also picked up the JZ For Men Classic Tan Jeans, another FREE group gift to the Menstuff members. The group does cost $50L to join, but with the many great gifts, it makes the joining fee well worth it.

A Reprieve, sort of…

After about an hour of me freezing and sulking for being a bad person and her staring me down out the window with eyes made of dragon fire, she opened the door and told me to come inside and warm up. I told her I was sorry and promised it would never happen again. She simply said “OK”, then pointed towards the chair and said this was where I’d be sleeping tonight. AND I was to keep my “hat” on. I reached up and realized that I had forgotten I had on the Baby I’m Back! Lampshade from !gO!  or even how it got on my head. The lampshade comes with a texture HUD if you want to make sure you match.  So here I am, warming by the fire and slowly realizing that this little incident is not yet over…

Forgiven - sort of

The Spirit of Christmas

The Spirit of ChristmasIt’s almost Christmas Fab Free!! Are you ready? I am never ready. LOL However I look and feel one step closer with an irresistibly cute group gift from !gO!, a FREE skin from Essences, and a winter-y gacha from LODE. I feel like a mythical Christmas spirit or one of Santa’s magical elves. Hopefully with all the Christmas spirit I’ll feel more like wrapping presents and baking goodies later. For now, I’ll get to the details!

LODE Fir Hair Wreath

This gorgeous highly detailed hair wreath is a gacha from LODE. You’ll find this gacha machine to the left as you enter the LODE main store. As with most of the gacha machines at LODE this one is just 60 lindens per play. Not only is this hair wreath gorgeous, it’s also able to be sized with a touch menu. There are several equally beautiful hair accessories to be won, even one with some adorable snowmen!

Essences KittyCats Advent Gift

Essences is participating in the KittyCats Advent Calendar this year. Like all the gifts in the advent calendar, the Essences (Day 16) gift is FREE and there is no need to join a group. You can visit the Essences main store to pick up your FREE gift from the KittyCats advent calendar, it’s on the wall to the right as you enter the shop. The FREE Essences advent gift is this an exclusive version of the Lynn skin. This gift includes a mesh head applier for Catwa, and an Omega applier that will work for mesh heads and bodies in the medium01 tone. The full release of this pretty face will be available soon! Don’t forget to pickup past group gifts while you’re at Essences, and you can of course pick up the current and previous KittyCats Advent Calendar gifts.

Spirit of ChristmasThe above outfit, including the legwarmers is the end-all beat-all of Christmas sweater outfits! This is the most recent group gift (not an advent gift) at !gO!. All group members can pick up this whimsical gift by clicking the gift vendor on the wall behind the desk at the !gO! main store. The outfit is fully mesh and can be worn with or without the legwarmers. In the package you’ll find a specific fit for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Standard mesh sizes. You will need to be in the !gO! in world group for this gift, which has a one time join fee of just 50 lindens. Also, don’t forget to pick up the !gO! advent gift for today, there’s a male advent gift and a female advent gift for each day.

Baubles & !gOs

AvaGirl & AvaBoy - Baubles Bear Sweater & Ice Skates

Lacing Up the Skates…

I’m going skating, (or at least virtually… It is just too cold to go outside today). And you can too with the FREE Christmas gifts from AvaGirl & AvaBoy. For the men, the gift was Baubles Bear Sweater and Ice Skates w/ animations. Just wear the skates and your walking and running movements make you skate like a pro. There are ladies gifts as well in the AvaGirl store. I also grabbed a pair of Bruce Rolled Mesh Jeans off of the Rispetto Designs cart at the Wash Cart Sale. As with all the other items from the Cart Sale, the jeans were only $10L.

Too Cool for the Ice…

If you’d rather just sit and watch, at least do it comfortably in the Todd Shirt & Jacket which is the Day 18 Male Advent gift from !gO. The jacket can also be worn separately to match your style. Now, if I only had a drink to dip this candy cane in…

!gO! Pick Up Day 5!

Snapshot_002
Hi there!  I am stopping by again today real quick to share news about the time sensitive !gO! Advent prize for day 5 and some sweet holiday flats I came across as a group gift at #EMPIRE  that just went so nicely with it!  There are so many wonderful gifts out there this month that I wish I could just stay here all day and show them, alas.. there is work.. and family and stuff!

Adventing at !gO! – Day 5

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Alina Jacket & Top with the Hydrangea add on under the advent tree labelled as Day #5.  You can wear the shirt with the jacket or each piece on it’s own if you like.  There are daily prizes for guys too!!

Adding the shoes…

After I had put on my new jacket, I remembered that #EMPIRE had recently released their group gift for December and they matched perfectly with one of the colours in the texture change HUD.  When you are a VIP at #EMPIRE (499L to join), you can pick up tons of group gifts including the Poinsettia Flats I am wearing today, and also take advantage of their group lucky boards.

Have a great day!

Adventing We Will !gO!

Snapshot_006
Hey Fabulouses! I am stopping by super fast tonight with a quick snapshot and a flash of news to let you know about a cute advent prize I picked up today at !gO!. As this is an advent gift, it is only available today (12/3/16).

Day 3 Advent @ !gO!:

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Valentine Collared Coat for free under the tree.  You just have to dig your way through the numbered tags to find #3!  I actually picked these pants up yesterday – as the day 2 advent prize at !gO! and thought I would never need a pair of green and white striped pants, but when I saw this jacket – it all came together and I love the way it looks.

Enjoy your evening and happy adventing!

Ombre Polka Dots

Polka dotsHey There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. So I want to tell you, I’ve tried my darnedest to get a really cool in world shot of this outfit at various locations around the Second Life grid, and my laptop is just not having it this week! It’s a cranky little thing some days. I really wanted to show off this group gift dress from !gO! paired with the group gift hair from redMint as much as I could. These plain background shots will have to do. Both of these gifts are beautifully unique, hopefully my photos do them enough justice.

Starting with this messy long pony tail hairstyle from redMint, how lovely is this style? I adore the idea of a long messy hairdo, it reminds me of ’90s grunge fashion. I also really do enjoy the hair color of this FREE group gift; the group is FREE to join. The color is a pale grey with hints of blue-green, and purple. It instantly made me think of the “sterling” hair color that has been showing up all over my social media feeds. As per usual with most redMint gifts, this one comes in the color shown only. You’ll find two sizes however.

This ombre orange and purple polka-dotted dress with it’s white collar and cuffed sleeves makes me think of Wednesday Addams, and gorgeous fall sunsets. Once again, !gO! has put out a beautiful gift for their group members. This is the sort of outfit that would be perfect for a Halloween party that you didn’t want to wear a costume to, but still wanted to be festive. The dress comes in body specific sizes as well as standard mesh sizes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Baubles! and Stripes

Shaded

I’m always thrilled when EvelineInTheBox sets out a new group gift, and I was not disappointed with the latest giftie. This pretty shirt with its upward dipped front, rivets at the neckline, and colorful stripes is not only fun, but also beautiful. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh sizes for a multitude of mesh bodies, including: Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique, Freya, Isis, and Venus. It fits like a dream and since the group is FREE to join, the gift is completely FREE as well.

I paired this boho reminiscent style shirt with a pair of earrings that I felt had the same feel. I picked up the Baubles! gift earrings FREE as a group gift as well. This group is also FREE to join. There were two other gifts setting out for you to enjoy… another pair of earrings as well as a pretty necklace.

Orangutan

Orangutan Baby I got a baby orangutan! hahaha I think this sweet little girl is too cute for words. I named her Princess Mombi but you can name yours anything you like. These adorable little orangutan babies are available at the current round of N21 from Black Bantam. These hold-able pets are 75 lindens per play and come in a few color variations. Upon receiving your orangutan you’ll know by clicking on him/her whether you adopted a boy or a girl. There are lots of fun ways to interact with your orangutan baby via the touch menu such as cuddling or kisses. Once you choose an action you’ll see an emote come up in local chat. Also, since these little babies are gachas so you can trade and collect them. Stop by N21 and get yours!
Pumpkin SpiceNext up, gO! has a new group gift out, and as always it’s beautiful! The colors in this halter style, hi-lo dress remind me of the coming fall season. I instantly thought of yummy pumpkin spice lattes and pretty fall leaves. The Olga dress comes in standard mesh size options, as well as Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. This gift is FREE to all gO! group members, and the gO! group has a one-time join fee of 50 lindens. I think this pretty dress is well worth the fee!

Finally, I picked up these classic pumps at Empire. They are one of the current FREE Lucky Letter prizes in an exclusive coral shade. You’ll still be able to change the color of the shoe sole using the standard Empire hud included. They come in a Maitreya Lara fit, Slink fit, Belleza fit, and a TMP fit. To get these pretty pumps head to the second floor of the Empire store, and join the Empire Updates group. The Empire Updates group is FREE to join, and is separate from the Empire VIP group.

***I’d also like to note that I’m noticing the windlight setting I used is making everything, including the dress, shoes, and the skin Pru is wearing appear a shade darker than they actually are. Please keep that in mind should you decide to pick them up. 

Here are the details, Enjoy!
