Boho butterflies, and violet blooms…Spring is here, at least for a little while

Hello all you Fabulous readers! I hope your week has been as good as mine (I took this week off from RL work, so my week has been wonderful). To make things even better for me, it is feeling an awful lot like Spring in my neck of the woods, despite it being the middle of February only. I know we will have another bout of winter, that’s always the way the weather works, but for now, I am enjoying the sunshine, and thought I would represent the Spring feeling in my post for today.

It all started with a trip to *Glitter*. I was actually there to slap a MM board, but while looking around, I noticed a free group gift I had not picked up before. How I missed it, I do not know. The Macy Boho Long mesh dress comes in all the standard sizes, and the colour is just gorgeous. The group is free to join, just throw on your tag and click the picture to get your gift. There are a few other gifts out as well, make sure you grab them too.

I wanted jewelry that had colours just as pretty as my dress, and found the perfect set while wandering around The Free Dove. The Cocoa Island Violets necklace and earring set is from Lazuri, and is free for everyone. The stones and metal are texture change by touch, as well, you can resize them. You may actually remember seeing this beautiful set a few months ago when it was a group gift from Lazuri, as Astrid did a lovely job of showing it off HERE. I just adore The Free Dove, and if it’s been awhile since you’ve gone, then you need to go visit again. There are always great new gifts being put out, and I am sure you will find stuff to snap up.

My last 2 items that helped keep me in the ‘Spring’ mood, came from the sister stores of Bella Elephante, and Elelphante Poses. I saw that Elephante Poses was participating in the hunt for this round of Enchantment, and headed over to do a little hunting. The free hunt gift you will receive, when you find the hidden book, is a pose prop called Flutter. It is a mesh set of glowing white butterflies that has 5 built in poses. Funny thing, I didn’t realize it was a ‘rezz and sit’ type of prop, so I wore it instead😛 Though you could easily take the poses out of the butterflies and create a version you wear for sims where you don’t have rez-capabilities. Just a thought. You will need to grab the hunt hud from the hunt poster at the store to be able to receive your gift. Just have it on when you find it, and you will get Flutter for free. The HUD conviently shows all the other stores participating and their LM’s as well. Once you have grabbed your hunt gifty, head across the way to Bella Elephante, and at their desk, you will see the board for the freebie nail hud I am showing off here, called Bloom, and all the colours are perfect for Spring. It is for SLink nails only, and it is free for everyone! Make sure you grab the Autumn themed set that is sitting right behind the Bloom nails too, they are free as well.

Well, I hope I have been able to inject some Spring into your day, as I know not everyone has been having such lovely weather. I’m off for now, but until we meet again, TTFN!

Snow Angel

Snow Angel 1

I once had a mentor in my life give me a little gold stick pin that said we all had guardian angels in our lives. This gift from Paris Metro reminded me a bit of the sweet nostalgia I felt the other day when I found that small gift tucked away in my jewelry box.

This lovely gift from Paris Metro is FREE with your FREE group join, and you can get it by stopping by the main store to pick it up there. It includes system and applier layers for Belleza, Slink, and Omega, a flexi skirt, sculpted belt and back bow, the wings shown, and a beautiful lead glass ornament (not shown).

Snow Angel 2

Lazui has also put out a set of beautiful new gifts for their group members in the form of this Renata Emeralds Set. For your 250L group join fee, you can get two different necklaces, both bracelets, and two earring styles all FREE. Lazuri is generous about giving out regular gifts, so don’t let the fee deter you.

My lovely Snow Queen pose is an advent gift from Eternal Dream Poses. Yes, the advents are still going on and it’s not too late to get in on some of the advent generosity! To get this pose you have two options, pay 10L if you are short on group space (a tiny fee for such a beautiful pose) or join the group for 200L and get all the advent gifts FREE — plus gifts for the rest of the year as well! The snowflake in the picture I have tinted to gold, but it was originally blue (tinted from white). It’s modifiable, so you can tint it whatever color you like to fit your snowy scene.

Trillion Dollar Daisy

Generosity is the spirit of the season, and creators in second life are no exception. Gifts simply abound this month and now is your chance to stock up on beautiful items for your wardrobe.

Trillion Dollar Look 1

I was doing a little bit of grid wandering, and I came across two items you won’t want to miss out to help you chase away any winter evening chills.

First, if you stop by Paisley Daisy, be sure sure to join the group (if you are not already in it) and pick up the latest FREE group gift, which is this elegant coat called Vintage Jackie 0 Style Dress/Coat. It is a coat or dress depending on how you wear it, though I paired it with some leg warmers for a look that suited my style. The coat comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as the fitted mesh size which I am wearing — because that is the size that accommodated my fuller avatar figure without forcing me to move down my sliders — yay!

The Paisley Daisy group is 100L to join, but there are quite a few past group gifts out to nab, with monthly group gifts out to follow, making this small group join fee well worth the lindens.

Trillion Dollar Look 2

I hadn’t stopped by Lazuri in a while to see if there was anything new, so I decided to take a stroll through the stores spacious offerings of glittering gems and precious pearls just to see what I could find. While there, I saw that they had up a new subscribo by the group gift section and clicked it just for updated news, and lo and behold it sent me FREE gifties!

There were quite a few items in the gift box, but my absolute favorite was this Trillion Ring which is not only stunning in style and contrast, but is color change as well for versatility. The options include 4 metal colors and 11 gem colors. I am showing it off in silver and onyx in the picture above.

Be sure to hurry to pick these items up. While the Paisley Daisy coat is a gift for the month of December, the Lazuri gift is subscribo, so it may not last long. Don’t wait and miss out!

Cocoa Island Violets With A Twist

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [1]

Neville Bell: Oh no, you can’t take my photograph.
Sue Charlton: Oh, I’m sorry, you believe it will take your spirit away.
Neville Bell: No, you got lens-cap on it.
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

So I went a little crocodile Dundee this week (as you can see) but it was well worth my while and I think I would make even Sue Charlton proud! The Twisted Hunt is not quite over yet, though you’ll need to hurry to get any of the last minute gifts you want. You’ve got until Oct 19th, to finish this wicked hunt for cubes. My dress today is {MOEKO} Elegantly Alternative’s FREE offering for the Twisted Hunt Gift and well worth the difficult walkabout through the jungle of cubes.

This great gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as a lovely (optional) mesh glittery overlay which I couldn’t pass up wearing. After all… even down under, Sue Charlton would not have!

Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: If I give my heart to you…
[pause]
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: Then I’ll have none and you’ll have two…
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

And this gorgeous matching jewelry and hat from Lazuri just stole *my* heart! So, I topped off my look with the latest round of FREE offerings from Lazuri which are just stunning to behold. The Cocoa Island Violets jewelry and hat are not to be missed.

If you are not in the group already, the invite will set you back 250L, but the regular gifts make it worthwhile, and even just for this one time, you’re going to get two different necklace styles, two different bracelet styles, two different earring styles, two different ring styles, and the hat. All are resizable and all have a color change Hud with different shades of violet, lavender, indigo, purple, etc.!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind

The weekend is winding down for me on this Sunday evening, so I thought I would show you a few amazing things to help ease you into a new week.

If you haven’t been to The Hair Fair yet then now is the time as it is much less crowded now the initial rush is over. Exile put their dollarbie gift out last night, which is a reason in itself to go over as this hair is just breathtaking. They have made a special pack of four colours expecially as their dollarbie for this event and the ends of the hair is a sparkling rainbow ombre! I may never take this hair off as I am so smitten with it! Plus it perfectly matches the adorable Unicorn Clutch that I found when taking a wander over to The Dreamers Factory event. If you join the event group for free, you can claim the little swag bag of gifts nearby which contains this clutch bag and two sweet necklaces that I will show in a future post!

Soooo.. about this gorgeous hair ~ laughs ~ I know, I know.. Im going to be obsessed about it for a while. But as Im back on the subject, here is a picture of the three other colours in the package.

Exile Hair Fair

Ok, I promise I will talk about the other things now! IKON have a new Group Gift for July with the release of their Immortal Eyes range. Their gift is a set from this range in a striking green colour. These eyes are perfect for that otherworldly feel and I can imagine I will be using them a lot in the future! The IKON group is free to join!

As you may have noticed from my other posts, I have quite a love for flowery head bands and crowns, so I was thrilled when I stopped by The Secret Affair event. The theme for this event is Medieval Masquerade with a hint of A Midsummer Nights Dream and there are so many beautiful things to swoon over. The Rose String Crown that I am wearing in the picture is one of the rare prizes from the ieQED gacha but there are several different styles to play for!

Izzie’s, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Greetings!

It’s one of those days where I just want to cozy up in a comfy chair and bury my nose in a great book.  So today I rummaged around my inventory and found all sorts of treasures from my latest shopping excursions.  My Izzie’s Belted Dress is a combination of mesh and non-mesh pieces and the belt has a color change option in the HUD.  This dress came in one of two clearance boxes, FILLED with all sorts of Izzie’s goodies, for only 10L each!  I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is in those boxes!  I see poses, clothing, hand bags, satchels, jewelry and Holiday items…the list goes on and on and only 10L for the whole shebang!  Make sure you pick up both boxes, located in the foyer at the entrance, because they both have different items in them…what treasures to be found!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!My gorgeous Touch of Stone Jewelry set is only one of several FREE jewelry items from Lazuri!  You’ll find some of the FREE (no group required) Lazuri jewelry items at the Main Store on the first floor near the group gifts (250L group join) and more on the second floor!  This Touch of Stone set comes with two different types of Fuschia stone options and metal change options! My absolutely adorable Baby Black Kite is a FREE gift from 8f8 and comes with an option to have it static on your shoulder, rotating around you or rezzed and rotating.

My stunning skin, Hanako T2 Aka,  was a gift from the skin artist behind Adam n Eve (AE), Sachi Vixen.  One of the things I have always loved about AE skins is that  Sachi details each skin from top to bottom by hand…speaking of which…her skins are known for having the best “bottom” in SL! Her skins are truly a work of art…NO templates here…100% original.

The particular skin gifted to me  came with delicious ruby red lips but I opted to use a Light Peachy Lipgloss from Esk-Imo.  The lip gloss is an old gift and no longer available…but you will find FREE eyeliner at the landing point and reasonably priced (150L and under) makeup tattoos in the makeup room. I topped the lipgloss off with Izzie’s Glossy Lips Highlights, from the Marketplace,…NOT free (149L) but ohhhhhhhhhh so worth it…what a difference it makes to the lips!  Yum!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!Love sent me these fabulous Athens (Pink) gacha shoes, from Essenz…she knows I ADORE all things pink!  These shoes are available as a gacha item (75L per play) at the The Comic Fair.  Thank you Love!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

What would a trip to a bookstore be without this cute little [POSH] Book Purse (Alice in Wonderland )for only 10L, from [POSH], on the Marketplace!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Once I had my outfit all sorted out, I headed for a cozy little place called the Novel Cafe.  I found this sweet bookstore/cafe as a result of a wonderful conversation with one of our amazing FabFree readers…Macey.  Macey is the creator behind this charming little bookstore/cafe and has done a lovely job at making a comfy place to curl up with a good book and a latte.  Be sure to venture out beyond the Bookstore/Cafe…there are other things to also discover and explore there!  Thank you for the tour and the fabulous conversation Macey…it was a pleasure to meet you!❤

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free!❤❤
