Candy Girl

Sugar, ah honey honey

Once upon a time, I had a whole list of ideas (because I’m a dork like that) for themed posts that I could do leading up to Saint Valentine’s Day. Since things have sure taken a sharp swerve into busy between then and the present, I figured I’d just have enough time to at least honor my most favorite aspect of February the Fourteenth. Forget about flowers or jewelry or even -shudder- dates, this Valentine’s (like every other before it) will be all about that sweet, sweet sugar rush. In lieu of simply wearing a sign that declared to all the (virtual) world my love for cookies, cakes, chocolates, and candy, I looked towards the Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift Listing for some inspiration and free gifts. Needless to say, there was one that stood out in the form of La Boheme’s updated group gift. My picture doesn’t really do it any justice but the delicate heart and vines motif that is drawn on each nail is very reminiscent of the icing on the prettiest confectionaries. The gift package includes:

  • LB Crush Gold Manicure and Pedicure Set for Slink and Omega hands
  • LB Crush Silver Manicure and Pedicure Set for Slink and Omega hands
  • LB Crush Gold Manicure set for Maitreya hands
  • LB Crush Silver Manicure set for Maitreya hands

Manicure and Pedicure sets for Slink and Omega hands are done separately, so if you’ve been wanting that subtle difference between fingernails and toenails, this is it. For a closer look at the mani and pedi sets, have a look at Love’s post {HERE}

You are my candy girl

Fully aware that it’s a rare thing indeed to find a hat that speaks both to my love for odd headgear and my sweet tooth, there was no way that I’d pass on this Valentine’s Day freebie by June Trenkins. The vibrant pink of the Bubblegum hat is made even more eye-catching due to the riot of prismatic bubblegum balls that decorate it. While snapping this picture, I was so very tempted to reach up and snap off one of them to pop into my mouth. While the Bubblegum hat is not resizable, you can still move it up and down or side to side along your point of attachment for a better fit. Permissions are set to copy so that you’ll be able to make as many backup copies as you like.  I’m not sure how long this freebie will be up for so if you fancy it, best hurry and grab it for your hat collection.

And you got me wanting you

February has really become a month for reds and pinks, hasn’t it? Not that I’m complaining as it’s really interesting to see the use of different shades in the many gifts and freebies found on the grid this month. Personally, I wouldn’t have considered pink footwear (unless they were sneakers of the hot pink variety) but the latest group gift from Essenz has really changed my mind. Not only do the bows on the Paris heels make a sweet twist to the open toe style, they also come in a choice of three perfect shades of pink (shown here in Bubblegum). The easy to use Hud also lets you customize the metals of the shoe so you can personalize it your heart’s content. The Paris heels come in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink feet with a shoe base to help with the fit. The Essenz group has a 350L join fee but the Creator is very generous and their group gifts never disappoint.

And you got me wanting you.

One of the first things I did as soon as there was a lull in ‘busy-ness’ was visiting one of my favorite skin stores. The Midnight Mania boards at 7 Deadly s{K}ins change out fairly regularly and on my last foray, I managed to get the Renske system skin pack off one of the Midnight Mania boards. As always when it comes to prizes from 7 Deadly s{K}ins, the Renske prize package was very generous and contained:

  • 7 system skins with cleavage/no cleavage options in the tones: Apricot, Chestnut, Cotton Candy, Powder, Pineapple (shown), Sand and Taupe.
  • Omega body appliers with cleavage/no cleavage options for all tones stated above.
  • Slink Hands and Feet appliers for all tones stated above
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers.

Midnight Mania boards are open to group members and this month group members will also have access to the Valentine’s Day Advent that runs from the first to the fourteenth of February. If you’re only hearing about this now, don’t worry as past gifts, aside from two I believe, are still available to you until the fourteenth. Right now the group join fee is 1000L but there’s always waiting for it to dip again if you’re not already a member and the store does hold free join exercises quite often. I just love the impish, sultry look on Renske. 7 Deadly s{K}ins have never disappointed and they’re certainly a store to watch.

And that’s a wrap. If the song’s stuck in your head I truly apologize. At least it’s catchy right?

Hey there!

Before I begin, I’d just like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and that I hope you had a great one! As for myself, I’m pretty excited to continue my adventures in Second Life; who knows what kind of fun and freebies 2017 will bring! Even with the festivities behind us, I was still in the mood for bright colors and knitwear and was very pleased to see that the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Marquesse Pret a Porter was a great mix of both. The Paige shirt was certainly a welcomed addition to my virtual wardrobe and not only for its vivid color (which is perfect for when you’re in the mood for color blocking by the way) but also for its fun and flirty design. Best of all, you can have this off shoulder little number for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group (no join fee required). Simply cut and paste the following link into the main chat box in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link when it pops up in main chat. Aforementioned link is; secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and if you’ve just joined us, welcome to the group!

Coming to a close

With the Winter Cart sale at the Wash coming to an end today, this is the last chance for you to pick up some goodies for yourself and your friend for just 10 L. I’ve recently purchased a new pair of Slink hands (finally something to cross off that bucket list) and thought that it was about time that I got a manicure. Pictured is the Diti Gold Omni set from La Boheme and the package includes a manicure set for Maitreya as well as a manicure and pedicure set for Slink and Omega.

I also stopped by the Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes cart at the Wash to pick up to pick up this gorgeous pair of boots. I own a similar pair in the real world and am always tickled when I get to dress the avatar in a similar fashion. You don’t need prim feet for this pair and the package includes a nifty alpha mask and shoe base to help with the fit.

My little friend

I stumbled upon this cute little guy on the Marketplace and thought to include him in the picture because our outfits matched (lol). For just 0L you can get a Baby Polar Bear for yourself too at the Meli Imako Marketplace store. The bear itself comes in both standing and sitting positions (shown) as well as AO, UV, Normals, Specular maps and textures. Full disclosure, as I haven’t gotten into building in SL yet, I’ve no idea what all of those are but the polar bear is cute and I’ve always had a thing for keeping odd animals around the house…

Speaking of, with two cats, several owls and now this little guy, I’m going to have to find a place that sells kibble for them all. Until next time guys!

Midnight Magpie

Midnight Magpie

Hello Fab Free…we did it!!  Ripley and I had been pursuing her for days, traveling stealthily to the Flawless sim, tapping the Midnight Mania board, and waiting, patiently waiting.  Then, it happened –  we finally caught the elusive Thieving Magpie!

A Prize Worth Waiting For

When Rip and I traveled to Entice to win the Be With You dress featured in my post [HERE], we spotted The Thieving Magpie (another free Midnight Mania prize), but we weren’t successful in our first attempt at victory.  I’m glad we returned to try again, because she’s a real beaut!  A stunning shade of aquamarine, Magpie features three-quarter length sleeves, a fitted, ribbed bodice in a slightly darker hue than the satiny main fabric, and a short, flared skirt.  The Midnight Mania board where you can win this flirty dress happens to be for Entice group members only, but the group is free to join. There are also multiple group-only lucky boards with sweet, free prizes available very close by, so joining the group will yield a number of gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for classic avatars
  • Appliers for:  Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya

Brazilia Shoes

Finishing Touches

I wanted something elegant, yet uncomplicated, to accent my outfit, so I added Dusk Angel Design’s Simplicity Necklace in aquamarine.  The center gemstone echoed the tint of my frock perfectly, while still allowing it to remain center stage.  My long, braided hair, Dakota, is from Wasabi Pills.   I scooped it up quite awhile ago as part of Fifty Linden Fridays, but you can purchase it in the store with a greater variety of colors than I have, for Wasabi Pill’s regular price.  I love the loose braid with wispy tendrils of hair framing either side of my face.  Next, I donned some strappy, Brazilia sandals from KC Couture (these 75L shoes come with a customization HUD with 30 textures!), then followed Ripley to the picturesque sim, A Painter’s Link.  There, he introduced me to some tiny ducklings he had befriended.  I pulled out my phone, and snapped a few pictures as they waddled up to their mini pond in the washtub.  Aren’t they just adorable?!

A Magpie Among Ducklings

I hope today’s outfit has inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

Dressed Like a Day Dream

I've Got a Blank Space

Hello there, Wonderful Readers!  You may have noticed the virtual flurry of posts lately about all the new presents for members of the in-world Fab Free Group, such as Edi’s post here, Love’s post here, Pru’s post here, and Loki’s post here.  If you haven’t, please do check them out!  The generosity of SL designers never ceases to amaze me!  There are so many gifties just for Fabulously Free in SL Group members, and it’s completely free to join.

This morning, after I refilled my coffee cup, I returned to find Ripley with his front paws perched up on my chair staring intently at the screen.  His tail was wagging briskly, and I knew my hound with a nose for fashion was on the trail of a mid-week Fabulous Find to share with you.  I’m a huge fan of Kira Paderborn and Jolene Carami over at Entice (as you could probably tell from my posts here and here).  When Ripley nudged the announcement from Love about a new, free gift from Entice, I scurried over to the Flawless sim to scoop it up.

I’ve Got a Blank Space

Featuring a deep magenta texture with subtle shimmers of colored sequins, the free, sleeveless Blank Space dress is loosely fitted and chic.  A simple black belt, worn low on the waist line, accents the deep shade of the dress beautifully.  The package includes standard mesh, plus an alpha layer for classic avatars, but also fits my Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up Blank Space for yourself, simply navigate to the Entice store, cross the footbridge, and head to the group gift section in the back.  Swap over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the board.  Ta da!

Sizes Included:  Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
Leave You Breathless

Finishing Touches

An elegant garnet Princess Solitaire necklace and earring set from Cae (a 75L gacha prize) echoed the rich tone of my new dress.  I splurged and picked up the matching Blank Space heels from Entice for 150L on the Marketplace to complete my look.  Perfectly coordinated, and dressed like a day dream, I accompanied Ripley to the Paramour Sim (thanks for the tip, Loki!) to snap a few photographs and look for little kittens to rescue.

Until Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

She’s a Cheeky One!

Cats Choose Us We Don't Choose Them
Mew……mew….mew…. the soft, plaintive cries floated on the breeze just as we arrived at the Pandora Resort.  My pal, Ripley, cocked his head, and then sped off to offer assistance to two poor, lost kittens.  The pupster can’t resist the call of creatures in need, and I can’t resist hunting down a good bargain.  Today, I have some free gifts to share with you that work beautifully together to create a cheeky, casual outfit, but first, back to our adventure…

Kittens 'n' boots

 Kittens ‘n’ Boots

When my boot-clad feet caught up with my canine friend, we discovered these adorable kittens calling for the rest of their family.  While I kept a close eye on our new feline acquaintances, Ripley dashed off to locate the missing relatives.  In this photo, you can get a close look at these fabulous and free Super Thigh Boots I discovered at Cheeky Amour.  A free gift for Third Life Group members, these softly polished high boots come with a texture-change HUD, which includes a range of 29 color variations, making them a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  High boots are “in” this fall, and for only a group join fee of 5L, you can keep up with the latest fashion trend for a very small investment.  In addition, there are many other free gifts around the grid for Third Life group members, so your lindens will reap a big return.

Camo Kat

A Military-Inspired Mini

Scandalize Creations is currently offering this camo-print Militar mini dress as a free gift for its group members.  The frock features a plunging, V-shaped neckline, and a softly-gathered sash at its center, designed to accentuate your waistline.  An asymmetrical hemline adds a playful touch, while half-length sleeves keep your arms warm on cool fall days.  I love its fun and flirty style! Best of all, the Scandalize Creations group is completely free to join.  To coordinate with the mini’s military theme, I snapped on a Brass Bullet necklace that I found from Jade Dragon Designs on The Marketplace.  It’s actually meant for guys, but it resized easily to fit my avatar, and I’m quite pleased with the overall look.

Reunited

It didn’t take Ripley long to round up the rest of the feline family.  As you can see in my main snapshot, all ended happily for the two little, lost kittens.  After accepting grateful thank yous from a once-anxious set of kitty parents, Ripley and I were free to explore SL’s wonderful sights, and seek out new Fabulous Finds for our wonderful readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hey, Beautiful One, Keep Cozy and Comfortable

Aqua 3

Hello Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are taking a break from chasing zombies at Woodbury Falls to bring you a special edition blog post featuring one of the newest Fabulously Free in SL group gifts.  I think you’ll really like this one!

It’s All About Sweater Weather

With brisk fall days upon us, I’m finding the need for warmer clothes to ward off the chill.  This free Bea Off Shoulder Sweater from The Beautiful Ones will keep me warm in style.  The aqua knit garment wraps my avi in comfort, and offers a sexy peek at one shoulder.  In addition to Maitreya and Slink versions for mesh bodies, the gift also includes classic avatar sizes in XS, S, M, L and XL in fit mesh.  I like the detailing on the knit cuffs and waistline… no chilly breezes will sneak past them, so I’m sure to stay cozy and comfortable.  To add this cute sweater to your wardrobe, all you have to do is join the Fabulously Free in SL group (it’s completely free!) then teleport over to The Beautiful Ones, and tap the board… easy peasy!  If you haven’t checked out all the wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free in SL group members, you can see them here.

Aqua 1

Trendy, Chic Choker

Since Rip and I had an exciting afternoon of zombie chasing planned, I decided to keep my look casual.  This simple, tattoo-style choker from Fakess on The Marketplace proved to be the perfect accessory, and it was only 1L.  With multiple layers included in the package, such as a tattoo and undershirt layers for classic avatars, and mesh body appliers for Omega, Slink Physique and TMP, this accessory is sure to be useful to all.

Relay…….What?!?

Although I am using the Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to utilize the Omega applier for the choker by using the HUD from Omega Solution’s System Relay Kit for Maitreya.  At 99L, it is priced a bit over our 75L limit for Fab Free, but I find this HUD to be an extremely useful tool to have tucked away in my inventory.  It allows me to wear items that only come with Omega appliers on my Maitreya mesh body, and it opens up so many options for expanding my SL wardrobe.  If you have a Maitreya body, it’s worth checking out.

Aqua 2

Ready to Run!

I slipped on these snug-fit, figure-sculpting Katelyn pants from Mette’s, and Lewis Studded Flat Sneakers from the Mesh Agency, then teleported (somewhat nervously) to the Woodbury Falls Sim.  Ripley has confidently assured me that he will keep me safe from harm.  I do have to say, though, that these zombies are pretty creepy, and emanate frightening sounds, so I’ve been keeping my guard up… This spooky sim is not for the faint of heart.  Yikes!  I think I hear the shuffling footsteps and moaning of one of those creatures fast approaching now, so I’d better end this post.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Where the Sky Touches the Sea

Where the Sky Touches the Sea
Ahoy there, Fab Free!  My trusty sea dog, Ripley, spotted a Fabulous Find today through his spyglass, and sounded the alarm as he paced the deck of our ship.  I followed his pointing nose, and caught sight of what looked to be the arms of a tentacled Kraken reaching above the waves, but it was actually the whimsical Octa dress from .Ecko.  While I admired the dress from a distance, Ripley took control of the rudder, and piloted us safely to shore so I could net a Saturday Special Edition outfit to share with our wonderful readers.

The Dress

This strapless frock is the most recent free gift from .Ecko. for Fabulously Free in SL group members, and features white octopus arms playfully waving across a jet-black background.  The gift comes in five standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, but hugged every curve of my Maitreya Lara body after adjusting the alpha layer.  It left my shoulders bare to enjoy the caress of gentle ocean breezes as my pup and I continued our sea adventure to scope out the rest of my outfit.

Sizes Included

Mesh for Classic avatars:  XXS, XS, S, M, L

Sideswept

Side-Swept Ponytail

As we got underway once more, a friendly seagull swooped down bearing welcome news of a brand-new gift from Truth Hawks for Truth VIP Group Members.  For a one-time fee of 265L, members will have access to an exclusive monthly hair style, which is scheduled to arrive the first week of each month, and will only be available for one month.  In addition, members will be granted early access to sales.  Deja, November’s free VIP hairstyle, is a loose, side-swept ponytail complete with the optional wispy bangs I am wearing here, as well as a cuff and side hair which I opted not to add in my picture.  This generous gift contains a full fat-pack of all color HUD variations Truth offers!  In real life, I often sport a ponytail, and I wish it was as glamorous and elegant looking as this one.

Accessories….The Exclamation Point of an Outfit

In my blog post here, I featured Victoria Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique.  I discovered today if you join the in-world Ben’s Beauty group, you can receive this free Harmony necklace.  It comes complete with a HUD that allows you to choose from 20 different scarf-stone colors and 4 metal textures.  I love how this piece of jewelry combines the look of a necklace with the added pop of a scarf, all wrapped up in one versatile piece.  I opted to stay with black and silver to coordinate with my dress.  Best of all, the Ben’s Beauty group is free to join!  Angular bangles from Izzies, and hoop earrings from Phoebe Piercings and More added the final touches of bling.

After slipping on RADEX Mesh Hayal High boots, which I found on the Marketplace for 89L, this pirate seafarer was ready for more adventures on the deep blue ocean with her ever-faithful, bargain-sniffing hound by her side.  Until next time, happy shopping!
