Here’s Some Shapes for Everyone!

Shapes for Everyone

If you are in need of some new shapes, this post is made for you! Shapes for Everyone is a FabFree designer and they are participating in FabFree at Fifteen. They sell shapes for a variety of mesh heads and bodies. I will be showing you two shapes they have available for the event today. I also threw in some more 15L items available for FabFree at Fifteen from the lovely designers Ruxy, Spells & Charms to Go, ati and ShoeDiction, so let’s look at what they have available! Note that all of these offers are only available until tomorrow, August 6th, so you must rush to get them!

“Deep Nightmare”

  • The first shape shown in the photo at the top of this post is “Deep Nightmare”, which is the free FabFree at Fifteen gift from Shapes for Everyone when you join the Fabulously Free in SL group. This shape is designed for Lelutka Lilly, which I am wearing with it. It is made to fit Maitreya Lara, Lucbody Atenea, and Legacy bodies, and I chose to wear Legacy with it. The free gift includes slim and plus versions (I am wearing the slim), as well as 12 eyebrow shapes and a style card. It includes a lot of goodies for a free gift!
  • I paired this look with an adorable dress made by Ruxy, which only costs 15L for FabFree at Fifteen. The dress includes a HUD with 5 pretty floral patterns. It fits Lara, Petite, Legacy, and Perky.

Shapes for Everyone II

“Ninniach”

  • The second shape is called “Ninniach” and it’s designed for the Catwa Queen HD Pro head. This shape is 15 Lindens at Shapes for Everyone for FabFree at Fifteen. It also works with Maitreya Lara, Lucbody Atenea, Legacy, Altamura, Erika, Reborn, Star, Kupra, and Belleza Freya bodies. It includes slim and plus versions (I am wearing the slim). It also includes 12 eyebrow shapes and a style card.
  • The toffee bowl is 15L at ati, and it gives out toffee to put in your mouth and a toffee aura. Note that you cannot rezz it.
  • The dress I am wearing in the second look is 15L at Spells & Charms to Go. The outfit includes a HUD that allows you to change the dress to 6 different colour options. It fits Lara, Freya, Legacy, Hourglass, Kupra, and TMP.
  • The shoes are 15L at ShoeDiction, and they fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

Have fun, FabFree!

Somedays our worlds get a little gray. For a variety of reasons we all have struggles and hard times. And sometimes all we need is for someone to bring a little color and sunshine to our life. I’m grateful for the people in my life that have done and continue to do that for me!

“Fitting In”

Fitting In

I recently created a new avatar with Maitreya Lara as the mesh body. It took me a lot of time to get the shape right. I was finding that a lot of stuff wasn’t fitting me anymore. Isn’t it crazy how much bodies are changing in SL? The minute I buy the newest one and get used to it, another one comes along… Hopefully, I still kept my curves with this new look. Let me know what you think of the end result! Now that I’m “fitting in” I am hoping to show you some cute outfits and products on the blog that I just couldn’t showcase before… although I would not be surprised if I do go back to my beloved Belleza eventually. I just think it’s so funny how we get emotionally attached to our virtual bodies and heads! I know I do, anyways.

Ooooo, Leg Chains!

A freebie I’ve been dying to show you for some time are these free leg chains from Mossu. You will find this gift lying on the floor under the “Harmony Dress Fatpack” vendor for free for all to grab. No group is required for this one. They’re sexy as heck! The chains include a colour texture change hud that allows you to customize the colours of the metals and the gems. It’s cute little things like this that I’ve been waiting to show you with a body that fits just right.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female

Fitting In II

Latex Look

You may remember that I recently blogged [QE Designs]’ recent offerings on the Kink in Pink Hunt. I couldn’t fit into the full outfit before. Now I can, so I decided to snap a pic with the panties, top, and skirt. Each prize only costs 25L on the hunt, so 75L for this full outfit! Each piece includes a hud of pastel latex colours. The Kink in Pink Hunt is running until June 30th, and you can read all the details about it in my post here.

Sizes Included (top, skirt & panties)

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female
  • eBODY Reborn
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

Pretty Little Loves: Raindale & The Beauty Factory

The Beauty Factory & Raindale

Like our fabulous readers, I run out and check out all of Aline’s fabulous finds.  She posted about The Beauty Factory’s awesome 1000L credit here, and I had to run over.  Wow.  What a treat!!!  These are unique threads that are so pretty.  There are a hot pile of group gifts AND the 1000L bought a few very pretty outfits, too!!!  Did I mention the group is FREE???  It was really hard to pick JUST ONE outfit, so I went with the group gift, Megan.  She is so delightful!!!  She comes with both the gown and the panties.  She is both sexy AND classy, and I love that combination! You’ll want to hurry though, this deal ends TODAY!

I also ran over to one of my favorite stores, Raindale, to pick up their March group gifts.  How cute is this set up???  It comes with everything you see except my horse, Dante. The group join cost is 250L, but every month, they have a set of 4-5 themed gifts that you can place out as a group or use individually.

Support Ukraine in Style!

Stand with Ukraine 1

Second Life is one of the most wonderful worlds in existence.  We can stand together and support our friends in the Ukraine while also loving our Russian friends who never asked their leaders to go to war.  I was so inspired by Cre’s post about supporting the Ukraine, that I quickly hopped onto Marketplace to see what else I could find.  Truly, there are hundreds of freebies out there to show our support for the Ukraine.  I can’t blog them all here, but do a quick search and you will have a closet full of items to show your support.  I found this beautiful FREE Eiko Dress Ukraine by E&E which comes with matching shoes.  I also found the FREE matching Ukraine lipstick by MAD, and a FREE 90s Necklace with a hud including two different peace signs by Melt.

Stand with Ukraine 2

The shoes come with the outfit and match perfectly!

If you wish to provide financial support, Two Moons Gardens is donating the proceeds of their Inspiration Garden (249L) to the International Red Cross for use in their care of refugees and victims of acts of war.  The garden, pictured above, is located on a special sim where there are freebies and 10L items to purchase to support the Red Cross’s efforts in addition to donation kiosks.  Two Moons will be hosting a Salsa event in the near future, so please check them out.

The Fabulous Farmer’s Market!

Amais - Kacey

My gentle readers…I’ve just returned from a week in Vegas.  It was for RL work, but STILL…Vegas!  I came back to SL to find all sorts of fun fabulous things including The Farmer’s Market!  To get these goodies, you go to each store and find the farm stand.  Everything is less than 80L.  This cute outfit named Kacey is by Amias.  This color cost 75L, but there are other colors at full price.  The necklace, adorably enough, is ALSO called Kacey (did they plan that?), and cost 65L at Michan.  There are several different metal choices, but each comes with a HUD for the gem.  The silver is pictured below.

As I catch up with all the SL goodies out on the grid, I found the Farmer’s Market to be a lot of fun!!!

The Bearded Guy and the Secret Garden

Simple Gifts

Every good story should start with the line, “let me tell you about The Bearded Guy and a Secret Garden.”  Such is the case with today’s outfit.

I started my morning as I always do, reading the FabFree blog to see what my blogging sisters have been up to.  Well, it turns out that Sister Arielle had been over to the Secret Garden, and that reminded me that I, too, needed to get on over there to see what goodies can be launched from those precious machines.  You can read about her adventures with the Mooh machine here.

While I have to admit that I was not at all fond of the Gacha ban, I really don’t mind the “next up” (there are so many names now) machines.  For one, I thought at least 20 times, wow, I just saved a fat ton of Linden.  In the Gacha days, I would never buy hair or clothes at a machine because I am very specific about my hair color, and I don’t like wasting precious Linden on clothes and accessories I will never wear.  Imagine my delight when I landed at the Demicorn spot at the Secret Garden and the three machines were humming in tandem!  Each 50L a pull, I scored three dresses that I will wear (red, pink and white), 2 rare pink bears, a black bear, and 2 gift boxes.  It was a such a nice score without anything I wouldn’t actually want!

Once I finish reading the blogs, I check out all the sales for the day, and, since it’s Saturday, there are lots of things to occupy my virtual purse.  I headed over to The Bearded Guy for some sale props, and that was the first time I had been to his store.  HOLY TOLEDO!  The Group is 75L to join, but there is an ENTIRE WALL of group gifts AND a 1500L Gift Card for group members.  I bought this scene, Cute Palacio Backdrop, with the Gift Card.  The scenes range in prices but the 1500L Gift Card will buy one fatpack or several single scenes.  I did the latter because I have a “thing” for pink.

So now that shopping is over, I can go listen to Rasbury Rearwin play the guitar in a seriously cute outfit!!!
