And Pajamas Too!

Pajamas

This one’s a quickie!

Advent Calendars are well on there way, so this one’s a quickie to get you started on 24 days of hair! Alice project has out their advent calendar again this year. You can pick up a FREE to all hair each day in natural colors with stripes in it. The free to all gift includes a hud that will give you “holiday” stripes of red and green or “frosty” stripes of blue. You can pick up the gift each day for FREE. If you miss a day, don’t fret, you can pick up previous days for just 50L each.

If you are an Alice Project Group VIP member (membership is 750L) you get an additional gift. This gift is the same hair but has a silver or gold (your choice) set of streaks in it. These can be picked up any day during the advent season.

The hair pictured above is called Amarys and will be out for a few more hours before a fresh FREE hair is set out. Be sure to pick it up!

And Pajamas too!

I stopped by Graffitiwear because every girl needs holiday pajamas! I picked these up as the free group gift. The group is just 5 little linden to join and this gift includes sizes for:

  • Classic mesh avatars XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya, and Venus

Now I’m all set for a holiday morning under the tree! And you will be too with your new goodies!

Everything Has Its Wonders

Hazardous

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in therein to be content.” – Helen Keller.

Another dark exploration?

On my last sim hop in my post [Here] I explored a dark cafe. I failed to mention that while I was there snapping my pictures, there was a hospitable couple also there who chatted amicably with me — Mr. and Mrs. S.

The gentleman, Mr. S., asked to take my photo. I said sure. Later, to my surprise, a notice popped up in my Flickr feed that I had been tagged in a photo, and in case you are interested, the result of the mysterious Mr. S.’s photo can be found [Here]. I think it’s a rather flattering shot.

I was doing some skimming for group gifts and I came across an advertisement for em@il’s applier leggings. The style caught my eye and I wanted to put a look together. And long story short… I wanted something dark, because something in me was longing for the wonders of the darkness. Not in a negative way, but in the way one longs for silence before a band plays beautiful music. That’s how I ended up at Hazardous. (The sim you see in this post’s pictures.) It’s really a fabulous place to visit… but I don’t want to give away the secrets. You really must go there for yourself.

What do the leggings that inspired the look include?

The leggings are a FREE group gift from em@ail (the group is FREE to join) and there are quite a few very pretty past group gifts still out at em@il for you to check out while you are there picking up this one.

What you’ll be getting in the package: appliers for system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, TMP, Eve, Brazilia, Belleza, and KL. That’s a lot of versatility! You’re sure to find an applier for you!

Hazardous 2

Dangerous measures…

A girl has to have dangerous hair to go with dangerous curves (like those great leggings gave me). So when I saw the gift out at Sintiklia I made a beeline. Of course you better hurry too. Right now there are two ways to pick up this gift.

Want the Free to all hair?

If you want the Colors and Pastels version of this hair, you can pick it up as a free to all gift, no group required. Just pay 0L and it is yours. This is a limited time offer, and I hear that it will be gone by the time the week is out. Be sure to teleport to the shop and nab this one up from Sintiklia right away.

Want the fatpack?

You’ve got a little longer on this offer. If you join the group (the fee is 100L) you can pick up the fatpack (110 colors tint pack) … that’s a lot of hair… you can pick this hair up as a group gift. Keep in mind that it is a 4 in 1 hair. You get the rigged mesh back with 4 different bang options. It is also unisex. I’m including the vendor advertisement below to give you a better idea of what you are getting with this really terrific deal.

But put a bow on it.

I finished up my look with something a little softer. After all… I originally reminded you all that there is “wonder in darkness.” So I picked up the FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) at Baubles. This pretty pair of bow earrings that you can see in my close-up picture above is a nice touch to any outfit and comes with a color change hud with 4 metal options. Danger not included.

Until our next adventure! See you then.

Never Too Tired

Never Too Tired

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative this month, with lots of amazing gifts for us menfolk to fill out our inventories. I opted for a new hairstyle today, which I picked up from Speakeasy. This FREE gift, is courtesy of the creator as part of the hunt. Just search for the beer and buy it for 0L. It includes two side-swept mesh styles, and huds for a full fatpack of colors. It’s well worth hunting down.

I’m never too tired for a good deal, so I also swung by It’s Gau and picked up the FREE men’s group gift from the back of the store. Join the group FREE and this tattoo you see me wearing is yours FREE. It comes in a system layer as well as appliers for TMP and Signature mesh bodies.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

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.

Mistress of Jewells 2

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.

Real Men Wear Pink 2

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.

Dura-ble

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!
