Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

Real Men Wear Pink

Real Men Wear Pink

I decided real men wear pink… or at least tie dye. Or Astrid told me so and I ended up in both somehow. Either way, this applier shirt which is pretty fabulous was FREE, courtesy of Corrupted Designs, and it won’t even cost you a group space. All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board. It locks down at only 25 slaps, so hurry if you want this shirt. The gift includes both slink and omega appliers (there are no system layers, sorry fellas), and as far as I can tell would work as a unisex top, but is really geared more toward the male audience.

My bracelet is a FREE to all gift I picked up at Glint Jewelry. This one *is* unisex as there is both a male and female bracelet in the box. No group is needed, just buy the gift for 0L at the main-store. It is being given in remembrance of the victims and survivors at Orlando.

Dura- able.

Call me blonde… platinum blonde…

But seriously — the ladies have all been showing you all these great SLB13 cake gifts and I didn’t want anyone to think that us menfolk had been left out! I stopped by The Men’s Department to discover that there were a plethora of cakes out for us menfolk at the event. I’m showing you a couple of the top quality FREE gifts (no group required) that you can pick up for wearing just with a click of your teleport button.

Yes I went platinum blonde for this post. It all began with this Dura hair gift at the event. It is the SLB13 gift out at the Men’s Department and is it yours FREE when you click the cake. It includes a hair base and is resize for easy fitting. I was really impressed with the hair quality and the fit and wanted to show it off.

The other FREE gift I picked up was this really terrific button down striped shirt by Gabriel. It comes in three mesh sizes… Slink, Standard, and TMP. You’re sure to find your perfect fit.

Be sure to pick these up soon, as this round of The Men’s Department event ends June 30th of this month.

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Morning Java

Morning Java

Paisley Daisy is one of my favorite places to pick up the monthly VIP group gift. And June’s gift is just gorgeous. I stopped by this morning and nabbed this two piece pants suit in red (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) with its flowing flexi side sash and thought that with a good set of heels and some bangle bracelets, I would be ready to take on the world with a great cup of Java… which is how I ended up at the latest art installation Sim — Entropy III — which is… you guessed it… the inside of a giant coffee cup! Well worth visiting some Second Life morning, if I don’t say so myself!

My pretty bangle bracelets by Paddling Melody are a fabulous FREE find on the marketplace, and what I really love best about these is the versatility. When you open the box you’ll find that you can wear each single bracelet separately, or the whole kit and caboodle as one set. The bracelets are just set to wear on the right arm… so if you want to wear them on both arms, as I have in the photo above, you’ll want to make a copy of the set and “attach to” your avatar’s left forearm and edit into place, and voila!

My shoes really are worth mentioning… even if they are over our 75L price tag limit. I had stopped by the Arcade Gacha event to take a look around for new hair and fell in love with these amazing heels by Azoury. They are 100L per spin, but each spin gets you a set of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, or TMP feet. Azoury are unique and high quality shoes, so if you can spare the Linden to give this machine a spin, you might want to give it a go.

Morning Java 1

My last stop was at the Clawtooth Gacha at the Arcade Gacha, where I picked up my new pretty hairstyle. There are two styles in the machine… the one I am showing you in the picture above called Zosia which is a shorter style. There was also a longer style called Jolene in the gacha machine. Both are really beautiful on, and at only 75L per spin, these are a really good deal.

Horse Power

Sometimes… you just need something different.

I love when different also turns out to be classy…

Horse Power

I made a stop by the Spring Freshness Cart Wash Sale Event this morning and came away with some not to be missed items from three different carts. Mix and match is always my thing of course… I love when beautiful pieces come together in style.

One of the carts I came across that really caught my eye was the BiZarre Hair Cart, where I picked up this rather amazing hair and jewelry set for only 50L called “Horse Power”. You get the hair in all its regal appearance, the earrings, the necklace, and a bracelet (bracelet not shown). It also comes in 12 textures with 12 hairbases all in the same box for the same single low price. I love the details and that despite the fact that this hair is really ‘out there’ as far as style… it is still incredibly classy. Though one could use it for contests… you could honestly don it for a formal ballroom setting just as easily and no one would blink an eye. It is high style couture.

I found the perfect dress to wear with my new hair at the Artic Storm Cart. I picked up the Jackie Oh Brown Stripe dress for only 50L and was really thrilled with the style and fit. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and does include a hat. I had to leave the hat off due to my exotic hair ;)  But there is one in the box, I promise you!

I also wanted to show off some of the amazing textures you can pick up from the Timeless Textures Cart right now for just 10L per pack. This is a great chance for builders or photographers or anyone who just likes great textures to stock up. I’m showing off three of the beautiful styles available in this picture. The beautiful wood grain is from the 12 Seamless Polished Wood Stained Pack. The green textures are from the 12 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Green Pack. And the red textures are from the 10 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Rose Pack. There are quite a few more texture packs set out… all for just 10L each!  Go go go and check them out!

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

The latest group gift at Glitterati for January is a lovely little black dress with a twist! It has detailing around the neckline, cuffs, and hem with buttons too that all have a retro feel with their yellow and white swirly-style pattern! It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Belleza fit, and Maitreya fit… so you’re sure to find YOUR fit!

This cute little retro-feel number is yours FREE with your group tag and the group is only 100L for membership. There are LOTS of past group gifts to pick up that are just as nice, so it’s well worth the small fee to join this group!

My fabulous hairdo is called Indigo and is an offer for Alice Project VIP members. The price to join the VIP group is 750L, but it gains you access to a huge number of gifts and goodies and special offers. (Such as this hair I’m wearing today). If you hurry down to Alice Project today, you can pick up this particular hair as part of the Winter Project.

Don’t fret though, if the price tag is too steep. As Love showed you in her post HERE, there is a gift each day until February 14th for non-members too and those are totally FREE! So either way, everyone wins!

I’m including a picture of the hair/color options from the vendor advertisement below just as Love did, to give you a quick reminder of what you get FREE and what you get with the group membership. Remember, if you miss a day, don’t fret! You can pick up the missed days for just 50L!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween?

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 1

Nunthing to wear yet for Halloween? Or interested in a fabulous roleplay costume and on a tight budget? I have your solution!

My nun habit is by Bombard and was an easy snag from the Marketplace for only 10L. It only comes with a flexy skirt and system layers but the flow and fit of the outfit (and quality of the make) was so impressive I was pleased despite the lack of mesh.

I used slink hands and the lack of my beloved mesh body wasn’t even noticeable with this well made costume (the necklace is included and the outfit comes in several colors and styles, not just the black I’m showing… quite a bargain for only 10L).

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 2

+Spellbound+ has put out a beautiful last minute Halloween Group Gift in the form of this hair called Asylum. It comes in a full color pack, and the creator is generously giving out the ‘tears’ face tattoo as well! It is your FREE with your Group Tag which is a mere 100L for the Group Join fee… well worth it I say!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 3

Not only does the hair include a full range of color changes, but let’s not leave out the versatility of the ‘veil/habit’ the hair comes with as well. It has 4 logo options for one… “no logo” the cross (shown above), and upside down cross, or “NILF” if you wish. It too is color change with 7 color choices to match various outfits for you making this a fabulous costume or roleplay hair.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers

Sometimes, we all need a week at home and a little snuggling and “me” time… but really, this entire post was inspired by a chance encounter…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [1]

So it was Fifty Linden Friday and I landed at Sway’s to pick up their deal of the day when I noticed they had out this gorgeous FREE gift! A rainbow heart couch with single sits and LBGT cuddle sits and it’s only two prims. You don’t need a group and you just pick it up courtesy of their store for FREE! I won’t get into politics, but it hit close to home and is a cause close to my heart, so I snatched up the gift and decided, this would be the “heart” of my post for the week (yes pun intended!)

Later I happened to be at on9 when I noticed they had some fabulous gifties out for visitors. There are several items out, and the group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. I picked up the clutch in mango but there were also several lovely mesh dresses and some accessories as well!

And let’s not forget that the Hair Fair ends today! Don’t miss your last chance to get the great gifts that are just there waiting for you!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [2]

Astrid is sporting this sexy short style from which was a FREE gift from Calico in a rich brown called Quinn and I topped it off with the FREE gift from Tableau Vivant — a sexy flower headband. Both creators were generous with their Hair Fair gifts. Calico’s Quinn is a fatpack of full colors and Tableau Vivant’s flower giftie comes in a fatpack of six sexy colors!

This photo is also a great shot of my jewelry, which you can grab for a sweet steal of a deal for only 50$L a spin at OMG – Oh My Gatcha right now. It comes in either gold or silver and Meva outdid herself in the gorgeous details on this flowery jewelry set. I love that the rings come in a right or left hand choice setting and that the jewelry is easily modifiable for sizing!

If you look close you’ll also notice my Tango nail appliers. These are another great find — this time from the marketplace. That’s right! Alaskametro has done it again! Another great palate of 12 colors for only 10$L. Don’t miss out on this “Tango” applier set!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [3]

But were not done yet… you have one more stop before you can relax. Head over to Kaithleen’s to pick up the latest group gift. This sweet mesh green dress comes in all the standard sizes is a FREE group gift right now. The group is FREE to join and I love the off the shoulder style and the lovely detailing at the top.

All in all, it made for a great day at home. I’m feeling the love! And I’m loving my new couch. (And for only two prims only my house is loving it too!) Time for a couch nap!
