The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!

cartsale_001

There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

You have until September 16th to come on down to the Wash and fill up your closet!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Boho Basics

Snapshot_001Hey there Fabulouse Readers :) I was visiting the latest round of Shiny Shabby the other day and came across this super fun Boho Daily Basics Set by Luas.  It’s just 50L per  play, and in the set there are several different styles of skirts and matching tops as well as the rare collar and also a bag (which I wasn’t lucky enough to score, but the event isn’t over yet!).  My favourite piece of the gacha set is actually the common floral skirt.  It’s so vibrantly coloured and full!
Luas Daily Basics GachaThe furnishings in my photo above are also available at 50L per play – but you’ll find the Boho Summer Gacha Set located at the Luas mainstore.

I haven’t come to you completely without freebie news!!  Don’t worry – I got your back.. or your eyes or something!  These very sultry IKON Triumph Eyes in the colour of Armor are the latest free group gift!  Just activate your free inworld group tag and you’ll be able to pick up both the prim and mesh versions.

Playing With My Heart

Snapshot_004 Hi there Fabulous readers!  It may be Monday, but it’s nothing a SL shopping therapy can’t fix, right?

If you are digging the denim topped summer dress I am in today, you can snag yourself a copy of the Playing With My Heart Dress in a full fatpack of colours as a free group gift at B!asta after you activate your inworld B!asta group tag.  The group is 50L to join, but that’s nothing for a whole fatpack of these great frocks!  They also have a great midnight mania board prize which is open to everyone, so if you aren’t wanting to pay the 50L group join fee, you can still go slap the MM board without any fees.

I thought these Leather Sandals by Aphorism that are available at Shiny Shabby matched my new dress, spot on.  They are 50L per play and you really can’t go wrong with any of the styles!  My faves are the rare sandals, but even the commons are fab!

Hope your Monday treats you well :)

A few more days of Summer sun

Boy… that was one long weekend! I hope it was a great one for all you Fabulous Folks.

BRii_001

Happily, I got a minute or two to satisfy my SL Hunt desires at Brii’s Underground Wear. This is the 1L White and Flowers Hunt ad it runs until August 31st.  There are ten sweet summery outfits hidden in  little clusters of flowers all over the store to find. Each prize is only 1 little linden but you get the outfit, the shoes and a make-up on a tattoo layer. I chose to show my favorite prize today: the Elsie. Again, you get the dress in five standard Mesh sizes, the shoes for SLink High Feet and a tattoo layer make-up.

I don’t want to let go of summer just yet so leave me here in my garden and my summery sundress for a little longer.

Just Another Fantasy

Snapshot_002 I have so much fun with the event rounds of The Fantasy Gacha that I have been, and been back several times now.  This particular trip I played the Dead Dollz gacha machine which is 50L per play,   and has these very sexy Bissmillah Tops and matching skirts in a few different colours with the white and black pieces being the rare items.

These items fit the Maitreya mesh body specifically and you are instructed to try a demo before you play just to be sure they fit your shape… but they fit me great!  I was a little worried the hip cut-outs wouldn’t be quite right, but they are cut low in all the right places and are rigged very well for movement too.

My Aadi Hair is by Damselfly and is also available at The Fantasy Gacha for 75L per play.  I have added the Bamse Butterfly Headband to this style (also available at TFG, playing at 50L per try).

Thanks so much to Fab Reader Scout for passing me these super cute dragons after seeing I had lost my others in a previous post. lol  I now have no shortage of baby dragons!

Overall It’s Been A Great Summer!

Snapshot_002

Good morning everyone :) I am taking advantage of the last few days of summer in this adorable overall/top set that Meli Imako put out as a free gift in her marketplace store.  This is a full perm set for builders, but heck – you can wear it as it comes and if you have any kind of designing talent (which I don’t!) you can play around with the colours too!  I am not sure how much longer this will be available – so grab it quick!

Enjoy your weekend!

Days of magic

Hello Fabulous Folks! I’m getting my fantasy fix today at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and I love it.

Days of magic

In RL, I happen to love Cosplay and have a few costumes that… yes… I wear. But there’s so few places to wear them. I mean… they’d toss me out of the Home Depot if I came in dressed as a Druid or something. So that leaves Second Life and trust me… I take advantage of it. I’ve been wearing the “Lisissandra” dress and jewelry from UNA non stop since I won them at the Carnival. I’m showing the Lisissandra top in the black and silver with the silver arm bands, the blue and white skirt with the silver belt, the black leather collar and bracers, and the silver headdress.

Days of magic

It’s such a gorgeous complete look I had to play till I won them all! The skirt is fit mesh but it doesn’t come with an alpha layer that I could find. But any slim skirt alpha will work nicely. The belt, collar, and bracers all come with a HUD to change the metal colors and the Headdress has a HUD to change the colored stones.  All this for only 50L per play!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival runs until September 12!  Here’s your taxi to the event -> Let’s GO!

** Oh… and that guy…? He was dead when I got there….
