Besom-e kind of Hipster

Sunglasses
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll tell you how I’ve spent my Sunday, shopping! The Hipster Fair is happening and it ends March 3rd. Most of the designers have set out an inexpensive gift for the event. While you shop, look for the pink and green mustaches at each booth. The pink gifts are women’s only, and the green gifts are male or unisex gifts. Each designer set the cost of their gift, in my experience most gifts were just 1 linden, while some were FREE, and others were as much as 5 lindens. I probably picked up at least 20 gifts! There were so many good items that I’ll be doing a second post with several more Hipster Fair freebies and cheapies. That said I also want to let you know about a special sales event at Besom.

Now, the most urgent aspect of the sale at Besom is that today is the last day! I wish I had caught wind of the sale sooner. Through the end of the day today (I assume, the sale is a “weekend” sale) all individual hair packs at Besom are marked 50 lindens. The purpose of the sale is to help raise funds for the medical bills of an adorable cat named Spirit. I’m not often one to promote causes, because I’m partly a cynical skeptic, but if ever there was a reason to feed my love of hair, the life of a kitty is just the one. Either way, you can’t beat 50 lindens for the quality hairstyles at Besom. The fact that the purchase will likely be helping a beloved pet is just the icing on the cake!

Normally I would go into a little bit of detail about each of the items in the post, however since there are several items in this post and a time sensitivity, I’ll just give you the basics.  Thanks in advance for understanding.  ❤

Get Your Mustache On

Hipster

Hello hello Fab Free! I’m back with another cute group gift from This is Wrong as well as a cute little septum piercing I found on the Marketplace from NOX. The graphic print on this adorable crop top was just too fun to resist. I love the sketched bow ties, pipes, and glasses, and of course the mustaches! This top is one of several FREE group gifts available at This is Wrong. The group is also FREE to join, so no reason to miss out on all this nerdy fun. It goes without saying that this septum piercing from NOX could not be more perfect with this shirt. I found this septum piercing for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace. The piercing comes with the black version shown as well as a brown version.  I hope you have fun with all this casual hipster cuteness!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Dollar Dollar Dollarbies Ya’ll

Hipster Gifts

Hello again Fab Free! I just couldn’t resist showing you a few more of the great gifts to be had at the Hipster Fair. Once in a while it’s fun to just put your hair up and pull on your favorite jeans. I did just that today, and it was perfect with these Hipster Fair gifts.

One of the things I love about Second Life is that heels become comfortable shoes you can wear with anything and not have to take into consideration the terrain or how long you’ll be standing! These pretty black pumps are a dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Hipster Fair. They are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Black pumps are one of those staple wardrobe items that you can’t have too many of.

Also at the Hipster Fair are these playful sunglasses from MONOMANIA. I love fun accessories for casual days, especially when they only cost 1 linden. I thought these particular glasses were especially cute considering the camera graphic in the lenses. The glasses do not include any scripts so they are low lag, and can be sized using the edit menu.

The chest tattoo Pru is sporting is another Hipster Fair dollarbie. This gift is from Rust Republic. The cute little owl and sugar skull tattoo comes with system layers and appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP, each with a normal and a fresh version. Not to mention I’m always for the combination of owls with sugar skulls!

To help tie everything together I browsed through the Marketplace and found this basic little applier tank top. The top is from a shop called Edenia and includes system layers in 14 colors, as well as appliers for Maitreya, TMP, and Slink. For something very basic that includes several colors and applier options, this is a great buy.

Hipster Stix

Hipster Stix

I feel like I’ve been away too long, it’s amazing what a busy few days in RL will do to your SL! That said I do have some awesome items I want to share with you, so I won’t waste time with chit chat. Stix recently put out a brand new group gift, and you’re gonna love it! It’s a pretty pale skin with fuchsia lips and dramatic eye-shadow that made me instantly think of the dark yet cute pastel goth style. This generous group gift from Stix includes the base skins with all the brow and bust options, as well as appliers for just about everything under the sun from mesh heads to bodies. At this time the Stix (PixyStix) group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift absolutely FREE.

Next up, the Hipster Fair has started and as always there are some great finds. This heather grey colored swimsuit and shorts combo is a 75 linden find at the Hipster Fair from Lushish Catz. Grey is such an in color right now, I’d say it’s the new black, but we all know how that goes! This is an applier outfit with appliers for Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink Physique/Hourglass, Belleza, Lena, Lolas Tango, Phat Azz, and Omega, but it also includes system layers. The swimsuit can be worn without the shorts as well.

Also at the Hipster Fair, Indulge Temptation has out a cute set of triangle rings for one linden. Just swing by the Indulge Temptation booth at the Hipster Fair and pick them up. The rings include a set for the right hand and the left hand, with a small or large triangle. I did have to adjust them some to fit my Maitreya hands, but the adjustment was easy to make. The dollarbie set also includes a color change/re-size hud so that you can adjust the metal of the rings and easily re-size them for a perfect fit.

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are 🙂 Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved 😛  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree 🙂

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

biancaF. / Quelita Beauty & B!Shop

biancaF. did it again and this time she gives out through the subscribe-o-matic another wonderful skin designed by a friend of her, Rachele Delgado (Quelita Beauty). It`s QS Skin Freebie in milk, a very pretty skin! Look at this face, the eye make up is great (and the body, too!) Tp over to biancaF.`s main store, touch the subscribe-o-matic, go to History, click the first choice dated Apr 16, 08 with subject “Rachele Free Skin In ….”. In a few minutes you will be proud owner of QS Skin Freebie designed by Rachele DelgadoQuelita Beauty (you will find the skin in your “Body Part” folder!).

Curious as I am I wanted to know more about Rachele Delgado and headed over to her store Quelita Beauty 2. Guess, what I´ve found? Yes, freebies – lingerie! Sexy lingerie 🙂 There are 2 boxes sitting on the ground. One box with B!Shop Nude Lingerie, the other box contains B!Shop Corallo Lingerie, both with matching stockings. I like it! But this lingerie is designed by Barbarella Cioc, owner of B!Shop! A bit confusing, I know 🙂 However, great freebies – thank you!
