Dinner Date

Dinner Out_001

I have a dinner date, and needed something spectacular to impress my friend. I know he won’t leave me waiting long, after all, he helped me hunt down both my necklace and my dress…

Don’t miss out…

… the Women Only Hunt ends December 31st, so you’ll need to hurry to get the last of the beautiful free prizes if you haven’t made all the stops yet. In preparation for my date, I stopped by Secrets and picked up the free Bey Necklace. It comes in two separate pieces and with a color change hud with 9 color choices for the metal. You can even change each part of the necklace separately. Color choices included some unique metal choices such as turquoise, pink, and violet, as well as the traditional black, silver, and gold.

As good as gold…

… is this Selene Black Lace Dress by Glitter. It’s the free group gift dress celebrating 6,000 group members. The Glitter group is free to join so you can pick up this dress for free too. It’s got a sheer bodice and a slightly sheer skirt. So if you’re modest, you might want to wear a pair of panties underneath.

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • Belleza

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

The Chair…

Braver than you Believe_001

I stopped by to visit my friend, the one I mention frequently and who’s furniture I envied in my post {HERE}. (I’m pretty sure you can still get that table and screen and decor if you’re a member of the L’Homme group by the way.) And he had out a chair that I had to try out. Then he informs me he got it as a free gift at an event where almost every booth has a free gift out! Of course I demanded a shopping excursion. Was it too much that I asked him to hold my purse? (Good thing I don’t usually carry a purse in Second Life).

The Chair…

So we made our way to “Shop ‘Till You Drop” and I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed at all the displays of wonderful shopping pleasures. I picked up free gifts as my shopping buddy hemmed and hawed (because of course he’d already been there and got all the goods).

But he was patient and I got my much awaited free gift chair by Chic Buildings! It has seven great poses and is low prim too! I’m showing off the pose called “monkey” in the picture above. You don’t even need a group for the free gifts at the event. Just buy the gifts that are out for 0L!

Another POE gift!

Serena showed you a gorgeous free POE Hunt gift from Prism in her post {HERE} but there are two (yes two!) POE Hunt gifts at Prism if you look! The second one is this dress I’m modeling called Sparkles by Journey. You can pick it up as part of the Hunt for free too! It has a sparkly gold turtleneck collar and sexy split sides and includes a color change hud for versatility!

Dress body compatibility included:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂

Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Put some jingle bells on…

Let it Snow_001

The White Armory has long been known for turning out beautiful gowns, dresses, and outfits. Recently they rebranded their ladies clothing line to Silvan Moon Designs. On the trail of the POE Hunt, you won’t want to miss their free gift contribution.

Put some jingle bells on.

I swear I heard jingle bells out on the snow as I stood out shivering and watching the sky. Is it too early for Santa to be checking up on us you think? I don’t think so! And I think Santa thought of me early with this free POE Hunt gift from Silvan Moon Designs. The Belladonna dress comes in a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit, and has beautiful details including the ascot scarf at the neck. It is all one piece for easy fitting.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift!
