Final Check

Final Check
Hiya, hope you all are having a wonderful fun-filled weekend.

Date Night

For some unknown reason, this outfit brought to mind a nursery rhyme, “There once was a girl who had a curl, right in the middle of her forehead.” “When she was good, she was very, very good.” “And when she was bad, she was even better.” Ok, so Mae West really doesn’t belong in the rhyme. LOL. Call it creative license. Jacx is doing a final wardrobe check before her date arrives. Modeling Fatal Fashion Dress/Garter Lace Black, for 1L @ the Orsy Event. Also from Fatal Fashion for 1L at the Orsy Event Fatal Fashion Nail #18 Halloween. (Sized for Belleza, Kupra, Maitreya, Slink, Tonic.) The Orsy Event is running from Oct 6th- Oct 21st. Some of the pumpkins at the event need the Orsy Group, some do not, I just joined the free group for ease of picking up the goodies.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Red Hot Heels

Today’s shoe is Venus Shoes Stella GG. These sweet basic heels come with a 15 color hud that changes all parts of the shoe, (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Venus.) Group join is 50L, with a wall of gifts, plus Lucky Chairs too. 🙂

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time,

Jacx

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

Homework

Homework
Hiya, happy hump day 🙂 Slipping in a quickie, something to lounge in this weekend.

For The Boobs

Another year of the Rock Your Rack Event. (Oct.2,2021-Oct.17,2021) A most worthy cause I truly support. The event has live music, fashion shows, booths to shop, beautifully decorated areas. Plus a hunt, look for the black and pink hanger in the designer’s booth. All hangers can be bought for 10L each. 100% of the sales from the hangers go to charity. Jacx is modeling 2 items from the hunt. Starting with Alaskametro Starlet Lace Bodysuit,(sized for Omega Appliers, Tattoo Layer, System Top & Bottom Layer) in shocking pink for 10L. (psst while at the booth grab the free wearable testers for the lips.) Next up, you guessed it! Shoes. LOL. Gabrielle Hamelin has the sweetest pair of heels for 10L, the GH October Pink Heeled Bow Pumps, ticking all my boxes. Open toe, pink & gold flowers on the side, a dusting of gold on the back, black shoe body, and a black bow, and like the name says, a pink heel.  Included is a small hud with bow on/off, shine on/off.

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time,

The Tale of Two Ravens

Coming Soon

There is a funny story behind this post. You might be wondering why I am wearing my dress twice in these two photos… that’s because my original plan was to just show the full version of the Raven dress shown in my photo on the right,  but last- minute before posting, I discovered that Starlight Apparel graciously set out a 1L version of the Raven dress in orange and with black ties- a Halloween edition- for the Bring on the Night Hunt. This hunt ends on September 30th, so get over to Starlight Apparel and hunt for this adorable dress. This was too cute not to show you so I had to snap a pic of the hunt prize. The dollarbie hunt prize comes in the orange colour of the dress with black ties only, seen in my photo on the left. 

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique 
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Ear Blush?

A new trend in new products made for Lelutka EvoX heads is ear blush. I wondered what ear blush is so I had to try it. One of my favourite SL vloggers Novata made this ear blush and it is available for free on the Marketplace. You can even tint the tattoo layer- you can see in my photos how I tinted it in orange to match one outfit and purple to match another. Neat! I guess you could also use ear blush for all the folks out there whose ears go red when they blush. 

Heels @ NX-Nardcotix

The stylish red heels I am wearing are a free gift at NX-Nardcotix. I was delighted to find that they have a couple free gifts for the shoe lovers out there. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Alice
  • Legacy
  • Slink

Enjoy, FabFree!

Fall Blue

Fall Blues

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. We are getting to the time of year when warm is becoming as important as stylish. The days grow cooler and I fore see sweaters and fleece in my future. Happily, Mystrie has that in mind for todays outfit.

This is the “Autumn Walks” outfit and you can pick it up for just 1L and a little hunting at the main store. The hunt prize for the Changing of Colors Hunt comes with the blue fleece look top, a pair of pants with a fall print and the ‘blue suede shoes’. I chose to throw on a pair of well-worn jeans for my walk today proving that the outfit is rather versatile. As I often have to chase after Dixie when she takes off after a squirrel, I thought jeans were appropriate.

The Changing of Colors Hunt runs until Sept. 30th so don’t tarry too long.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

When Bloggers go Bad

When Bloggers go Bad

Ah, sorry to say it does happen, bloggers do go bad.  When the deadlines become too much, when your creativity has been squashed away by demanding designers and events…. sometimes a girl just *snaps* (or a guy!) and there goes poor Teddy, who never said a mean thing to her in his entire life….  it’s so sad….

Kidding!  I’m kidding gang!  No teddy bears were harmed in the writing of this blog post!  That’s not really blood, its just ketchup!!!!  And its just a rubber knife I am wielding!  I couldn’t even cut a tag off a new dress with that thing!

It’s just me getting ready for my Halloween photos.  I have to say, Halloween is my very favorite time of the year in second life.  There are always haunted carnivals and zombies chasing you, and sometimes really grisly stuff that makes me squeal and squirm at my desk and I wonder what some people are actually thinking because it starts to borderline on just a wee bit *too* demented, you know?  But all in all it’s a lot of fun and I love to dress up and take scary pictures for a month or so, if you want to see some of my old Halloween creations just check my Flickr, I will keep it tame (er!) on Fab Free of course, but in my other blogging world… bwahahaha!!!!!  Look out!

However, I do have a reason for this post (don’t I always???), I’ve been continuing the treacherous Twisted Hunt and came up with this cute and slightly sinister outfit at Maya’s Meshy Stuff.  The shirt has a little evil (also knife wielding) bunneh on it.  It’s very INFP, the cute but can be scary thing, and I fully embrace it!  This is as I said previously a totally free hunt (but you gotta work for stuff!) and the top and skirt were hidden separately.  It’s a fun hunt to get you into that twisted spooky frame of mind for Halloween time.

This outfit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Spookily yours,

Divine Wisdom of the Earth Goddess

Ancient Wisdom

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!
