Fab Free – Designer Friday – 09/15/2017 – Heaven & Hell

Heaven & Hell Exterior
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here, especially on Friday (okay, almost Saturday)! I’m sure it goes without saying that this is indeed the Fab Free Designer Friday post for the week. Heaven & Hell is this week’s featured designer. Also you’ll be happy to know that Heaven & Hell has clothing for ladies as well as gentlemen. Along with clothing you’ll also find shoes at Heaven & Hell. The style could best be described as fun and flirty, leaning more toward casual clothing, but with some what I would call “date night” looks.

From the moment you enter the Heaven & Hell main shop, it’s obvious there is a lot to see. Just to the right of the circulation desk you’ll see boards mentioning associated groups and events. This is also where you can find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members, just be sure to wear your tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, there’s a joiner above the gift. The Fab Free group is and always will be FREE to join.
Heaven & Hell Offers
Once you’ve picked up your copy of the FREE Fab Free group gift previously announced by Love here, follow the trails on the floor toward the Heaven & Hell group gifts. The Heaven & Hell group is also FREE to join. You’ll find a vendor of FREE female Heaven & Hell group gifts to the left and a vendor of FREE male group gifts by Heaven & Hell to the right. Keep following the paths and you’ll come to a wall full of Lucky Letter boards, half of which require the Heaven & Hell group tag to participate, and half are open to everyone. There are male and female gifts in the Lucky Letter boards also. In the center of the Lucky Letter boards are a couple of Midnight Mania boards which also have a male and a female prize. Finally, you’ll also want to take note of the various “special offer” vendors positioned throughout the store. Happy shopping Fab Free! Enjoy all these awesome FREEbies!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/07/2017 – The Man Cave

The Man Cave
It’s FriYay and I’m ready to sing! Okay maybe no singing, but I am definitely excited to be here. Today’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about The Man Cave. Yep, a store for the guys, that has to be exciting. I know it doesn’t happen as often as we would like. The Man Cave has mostly casual menswear including some shoes and accessories. It would be a great spot to pick up everyday attire. The layout of the shop is fairly strait forward, new releases to the left as you enter the store, and little foot prints on the the floor leading you to a few bargains at the back of the store. Wouldn’t it be great if all shops were so easy to get around?!
The Man Cave Gifts & Offers
At the back of the store is where you’ll find The Man Cave information desk. There you can join the group, and buy gift cards. Along the back wall are where the various bargains and offers are available, including the FREE Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Carson showed this awesome gift in his post “Welcome to Minerva.” The gift includes the hat, sunglasses, and shoes.  Also, in the same area there is a Midnight Madness board with no group required. It has a low target of just 10 people and the current prize is a 100 linden gift card for The Man Cave. So, it’s definitely worth the effort to check out The Man Cave!

Caution… Step Away From the Turtles

I was wandering around that beach that Love dragged me to for a photo op… and I came across an interesting sign…

Gizza5_001

Wasn’t sure what to make of that… as I drifted off to sleep dressed comfortably in the great shirt/shorts combo that is still available as the March gift at GizzA!  The group is free to join and they have some really great gifts for both guys and gals. I was awakened by some talk about saving the turtles at the beach.  By the time I had shaken the wool out of my head I had been deputized as a Turtle Protector o.O   Didn’t get a cool badge or anything, but I did chase off a guy bent on making turtle soup out of the poor denizens on the beach.  You don’t have to be a Turtle Protector to grab the great March gift at GizzA. So get your bums over there if you haven’t already!

A Bright Ydea

So there I was.. wandering around aimlessly through shops trying to recover from a day at the beach with Miss Tw… Love, when this Ydea went off in my head… mostly because I was standing in front of the guys May gift for Ydea group members. So I slowed my breathing down and wiped the sweat from my eyes so I could read the sign. It turned out to be a great outfit, featuring shirt, windbreaker, jeans, and sneakers!  The only thing missing is a .. well nothing is missing other than a place to romp around so I found one myself. The outfit is called “StreetBoy,” so naturally I went off-road at the beautiful  HumaNoiD sim to snap a pic of the outfit.  Get on over to Ydea and pick up this great outfit that is FREE for members. Going off-road is at your own risk 🙂

A Walk in Brussels

vero4f

It’s a great day for a walk in the sunshine, so I decided to take a stroll around the City of Brussels. I’m wearing the February group gift from Vero Modero (free to  join), along with these Shearling Short Boots, the latest group gift from ::GABRIEL:: (free to join).

vero13f

I was lucky enough to get this great skin for free from the lucky boards at *JOMO*. It comes with the tattoo you see here. My jewelry is one of the current men’s group gifts from Chop Zuey (350L to join; lots of gifts out now!), and my hair is the group gift from Mr. C (30L to join). The hair doesn’t come with a hairbase, so you’ll need to find one you like to wear it with. I wearing the hairbase from the *OMIKO* group gift from Yasum.

All this walking has made me hungry. Do I smell Belgian Fries!

A Jolie Fleur du Soir

Gavin is humoring me today while I “play pixie” again. 🙂

ydeakc5f

I wanted to show you this gorgeous petite dress, La Fleur du Soir, the current group gift at Kastle Rock Petites. The group is free to join, and the sim is simply lovely, so be sure to give it a wander. You can see a little peek of it behind us (please click to enlarge).

Gavin is wearing the latest group gift from *Ydea*, also free to join. Included are the mesh hoodie jacket, shirt and tie, jeans, and shoes. Gavin’s Rhett hair is a pre-opening, sneak peak from brand-new designer { Quandry }. You can pick it up at the preview price of 100L for a little while longer at {EPIC}. 5 colors are included in the box, all with a little, red tip in the front. Scarlett, a long braid, is also on preview for the ladies.

ydeakc8f

What I really wanted to show you is this skin. Aeva // Heartsick is currently having a sale, with lots of skins available for 100L each. When I saw that they were previewing a couple of new petite skins, I was intrigued, and tried the demo. Jolie Petite comes in several different shades, and includes a red, rose outfit in the box. Now, I won’t lie to you; it’s a bit of a pain putting a new skin over your petite avatar. Nothing at all like putting a new skin on your “biggie.” But it’s not hard – read the directions! – and I think the results are definitely worth it! Have you ever seen lips like this on a petite before?

My earrings are not free, but they are on sale at !ELEMENTAL PETITE for 50L. They are texture change with silver/gold metals, and 4 different gems. My hair is a free group gift from “”D!va”” (free to join; 30,000 Members Gift), and I’ve sized it waaaaay down to fit. All the “”D!va”” hairs I’ve tried are resizeable, and can be made to fit petite avatars; be sure you take a copy first. This one includes flowers, which I’m not wearing, a “wig” with a couple of extra buns, and there’s even a dress in the box! 🙂

UPDATED 2/20/13 12:37 PM SLT: Great news! The designer has put the 2 Jolie Petite skins back out for sale because so many people were asking for them! They are still for sale at 100L/per shade so hurry over and grab them. I just picked up the Black Rose version, and I can’t wait to try it. She will also be putting out a 10L petite skin at The Wash Cart Sale, which opened today and Love wrote about this morning. I haven’t seen it yet, so let me know what you think if you try it! 🙂

UPDATED 2/18/2013 9:57 PM SLT: I’m sorry to report that the skin sale at Aeva // Heartsick has ended. 😦 Hopefully the Jolie Petite skins will be available in the store soon.

Feeling the Love on Valentine’s Day

valentine6f

I’m in love! Yeah, I know, who doesn’t love a man in a tuxedo, right? 😉 Lucky for Gavin, I found this snazzy mesh tux at Sin Original as part of the Love Love Hunt. Even the shoes are included – not bad for only 1L! He’s also wearing the new Goldy Teal gift eyes from Amacci – no group join is needed.

My dress is a free Valentine’s Day gift from Snowpaws; there is also a petite version available, so ladies of all sizes can look dazzling today. Oh, and I got our dancing pose at the Valentine’s Sale at Glitterati Poses; all couples and friends poses are on sale until 21 February.

valentine11f

Gavin is a great guy, but I’m so in love with these SHOES! I joined the [Gos] Boutique group for free back when it first opened up, and I’m so glad I did; these special edition Grace Sandals Red Glitter are a brand-new gift for group members. The join fee is 500L now, but… the Grace Sandals regularly cost more than the join fee, so pick up this gift and you’ve got your $L back. Part of what makes these shoes so amazing is the skin matching. To say that it’s easy – and it works! – would be an understatement. Seriously, a couple of clicks and you’re done. Behind me is the Who We Love Photoboard, the Valentine’s Day VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). There are spaces for photos of 16 of your favorite people, and the board and frame are texture-change. I’ve added a few of my faves already. 🙂

valentine16f

[Pink Fuel] released this scrumptious group gift today: Alyx <Peach> – Sultry. She comes with dark brows and 2 different eye makeups, and the [PF] group is free to join. Are those red lips luscious, or what? My Love’s Coming necklace and ring are both group gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The group is 350L to join, but even if you choose not to join, you can still pick up several other gifts, including these earrings, for free.

I would personally like to thank all the wonderful designers for their generosity this Valentine’s Day. Today has honestly been like Christmas all over again; while I was taking these photos, it seemed like a new gift came through every few minutes! If you get a chance, thank a designer.

Gavin and I hope you all have a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day! ❤
