Arabian Nights and Wicked Pleasures

“A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance.” [The Arabian Nights]

There are always conflicting ideas about the finer things in life — and whether or not they are material wealth or riches in the form of things like health and family. The good news is, that if your wardrobe is drooping, it won’t cost you much more than a bit of patience for these striking Arabian Nights looks!

Wicked Pleasures 1

I discovered that ALB Fashion has out a gorgeous new tunic dress as a group gift called Sandy for FREE if you wear your group tag. It is a one time fee of 500L to join, but there are quite a few quality past group gifts out and more gifts in the future to come. The tunic dress came in two colors and in all the standard sizes for a great fit (I paired it with jeans and it made a stunning top).

My necklace, pictured above, is a FREE gift, but it’s going to take you some patience and persistence. It is a two part necklace (so you could wear just the short or just the long piece for added versatility) and called India and is a Mini Mania Board prize by Wicked. The board is 10 slaps and starts over every time it reaches 10, randomly giving out 1 prize to 1 person who has slapped the board. I was thrilled as this necklace with its great indigo color matched my new tunic just perfectly!

Wicked Pleaures 2

My Wicked Alex Sweater shown above is also FREE at Wicked, but like the India necklace will take a bit of patience and luck. Currently at Wicked, not only is there a Mini Mania Board out for shoppers to slap, but there are also two lucky letter chairs. I was super lucky as not only did I get the India necklace, but my letter came up for this gorgeous sweater as well! The sweater comes in all the standard mesh sizes and while the sweater part itself is one solid color, the bra part comes with a color change Hud for versatility making this a fabulous giftie! Woot!

Wicked Pleasures 3

If patience is not your thing, it’s still worth stopping by Wicked for the current group gift. Shown above is the FREE group gift offering – the Sally Blouse in Rouge. The group is FREE to join, making this gift completely FREE. Like all the other items, it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is a great fit!

Wicked Pleasures 4

I paired my Sally Blouse with a lovely jewelry Gift from Chop Zuey that is in store currently. This stunning set called Dragon Heart Demi Parure is yours FREE with your group tag (and one time join fee of 350L but don’t worry — there are regular gifts to make it well worth it!). The choker and earrings are resizable and texture change and you can change the two gems on the earrings separately allowing for multiple combinations of colors! What a treat!

Halloween is so *Foxy!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 3

“This witch can be bribed with chocolate.” -Anonymous. I would also like to add… for some of us that includes good free and low price fashion for Halloween! And *Foxy Fashion has come through with treats for the holiday, which I’m going to show you how to mix and match (as always) because as you well know… I love to do that!

The first base outfit, which you can see above, is the Evil Bunny Halloween Hunt Gift. Find this in the *Foxy main-store and for the tiny sum of 1L you will have the stunning Latex shorts and top in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitted mesh. It also includes a surprise set of pasties inside (which I loved). The pasties come in standard layers as well as the different type of appliers such as Maitreya, Omega, and TMP and have two versions: “Angry” and “Happy”. I’ll be showing you “Happy” in my posts, because I was so “Happy” with these great finds!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 1

“A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.” – Charles Gordy

The pumpkin guy next to me is definitely smiling… as are my “Happy” pasties! I paired the Happy pasties and the shorts from the 1L hunt gift with a rocking sheer top that *Foxy currently has out in the store in two different styles for only 49L. I love the way these drape and the pasties under them make them PG enough for anywhere.

Above you can see the top in Pumpkin and below you can see the top in Spiderweb. I wanted to make sure and give you both a front and back view of both the top AND the hair I’m sporting… because the hair is a fabulous gift too!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 2

“Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps it’s brain!” – Sheruni Ratnabalasuriar

Did you notice the hands on that piano? I know creepy! I’m keeping it away from me! But seriously, the detail on these *Foxy 49L sheer tank tops is not to be beat. And you can get the back view of the Spiderweb tank in the picture above… as well as the back view of my hair. I’m sure you were admiring where I was keeping *MY* brain!

Right now if you stop by MINA Hair and join the group you can pick up this unisex hair, called Tristan for FREE. The group is 200L to join but there are two gifts out: one for women and one that is unisex and the fee gets you periodic gifts plus everyday in-store savings! That’s a tough deal to beat!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 4

“Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death but to inspire yourself to life.” – Adele Brookman

And we’re not done yet shoppers! Because the picture above shows you something you won’t want to miss out on!

This *Foxy Group Gift just brought my imagination to life! I love the jumper (jumping not including :P) and the textures on this great little number! It is the FREE October group gift from *Foxy and the group is FREE to join, making this little number completely affordable for everyone! Be sure to get over to *Foxy and inspire yourself too!


How to treat yourself right this October!

Stargazing in Wicca’s Wardrobe

“Only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is the time of year that we are reminded that there is beauty to be had in the simple pleasures of life — things like nature walks, the crisp bite of the fall wind, camp-outs with a friend, and yes — even in Second Life — stargazing.

A Wicca's Camp Out [2]

“Bright Star! Would I were steadfast as though art –
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores.”
– John Keats

Of course on those cooler fall evenings, stargazing calls for a little bit warmer clothing — and thank goodness Wicca’s Wardrobe is here to help out with clothes for both the guys and the gals with their sweet, sweet steals! For just a one time 50L group join, you will have access to all their present and past group gifts, including male and female group gifts. These range from dresses, pants, full outfits, and shoes… to poses as well!

Above you can see that Riler and Astrid found matching Indian Summer jeans in a great late shade of fading late autumn brown and Riler is sporting a pair of October Boots called Easy Rider Boots. These are both great gifts from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which you can call “yours,” once your group tag is steadfastly in place.

A Wicca's Camp Out

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.” – Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

These male and female jackets by Wicca’s Wardrobe came separate from the jeans, but look as if they were just made for them, and certainly are a matching set for any two friends who need to stay warm on autumn evening camp outs to star gaze and discuss the really important things in life.

The male version of the jacket which Riler is wearing is called Luke and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It is one piece (the undershirt with coat attached) for easy fitting, and is a great compliment to the female version of the jacket called Leia which Astrid is sporting. Leia too is one piece in all the standard sizes and fits just as nicely.

There are plenty of new and old group gifts to be had for your piddly 50L group join gift. You’ll be able to fill a small closet (or wardrobe!) for that small bit of change. Don’t miss out on the chance to check out Wicca’s Wardrobe!

The Wash Cart Sale – Artic Storm & some hunting fun

Artic Storm @ The Wash

As The Wash Cart Sale is winding down (you have til the 16th) lets dig right into the Artic Storm Cart so you can grab what you want before its too late!

The hanky hem on the mesh Willa Tank Dress is cute and different from the usual straight hem on many dresses. The 2 colors of this dress look so different you could get both and a doubt anyone would recognize it as the same dress.

Artic Storm Cart
Joise Flirt Blue is a mesh dress with a flexi skirt option. The dress can be worn without it as I am showing you here. Particularly with he flexi skirt on I found myself looking for Toto as this cute little frock reminded me of Dorthy in the Wizard of OZ. If anyone sees Toto send him on my way giggles. The side slits is what sold me on the mesh Melanie jumper. They will make heads turn. The belt is attached to the outfit. You also get a system layer bikini which could probably double as a bra and panties in a pinch. I really liked the texture on the mesh Tangerine Purple Floral Dress. All these outfits could work with flats or heels and are 10L each.

Artic Storm 3

I wanted to mention the skin I am wearing in all the pics today. The 7 Deadly S{ki}ins is having a FREE Fall Hunt, you do have to be in their group but right now its FREE to join, which runs thru the 15th. There are 15 orange leaves to find containing skins and appliers for Slink, Tango and Phatazz. The hunt will take you a bit of time and will make you put good use to your camming skills. While some leaves are pretty easy to see some are really well hidden, tucked under and behind things and even outside. While each skin is the same apricot color they are subtly differences as you can see in the sample I am showing here. Some have freckles, no freckles, cleavage, no cleavage, lip color etc. Even if you don’t want to do the hunt pop over and take advantage of the FREE group join which runs thru the hunt so its FREE til the 15th. Its a generous group there are gifts and hunts etc all the time.

Spumped by That Vintage Touch

Rev me up! I’m ready to ride! And a little Vintage Touch added to my inventory was just the attitude adjustment my wardrobe needed to spruce up my Sunday stop at BB’s Diner in Second Life!

The Vintage Touch [1]

You still have a few day’s left to catch the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale. So before time runs out, make sure you stop by the Vintage Touch Cart to check out their fabulous mesh T-shirts. These classic designs are only 10L each, come in all the standard sizes, and are transferable for gift giving too!

The Vintage Touch Cart also has a special deal for you while you are at their cart! If you touch the Landmark giver to their main store, it will give you a free gift and then you can travel to their main store where their line of zodiac pendants and rings are currently on sale for only 10L each as well!

Each ring or pendant package includes both a male and female item in two sizes. Astrid is wearing the Capricorn set above and below is a picture of the full line up of all the zodiac styles available!

The Vintage Touch [3]

Okay, so I couldn’t resist a stretch out on top of the convertible I found outside of the diner… but only because I wanted to show you these fabulous SHOES! Oh my goodness! You simply must make a hop stop to shop at Pure Poison to nab up these heart-popping Leila Spumps. Yes! I said spumps! If you are wearing your Pure Poison Group tag you are eligible for a free spin on the Leila Gacha and can get a pair of these fantastic spumps for free! I didn’t get the rare, but the gift gacha granted me a pair in black, so I was just as spumped (pun intended)!!!

Best yet? Right now the Pure Poison group is FREE to join, making this a FREE gift! This may be a limited time offer, as I do remember the group having a fee in the past, so be sure to nab up your group invite ASAP!

The Vintage Touch [2]

Now if wine and burgundy aren’t your thing, don’t let that deter you from stopping by the Vintage Touch Cart to pick up a T-shirt. As you can see below, the variety is terrific. There are 8 great styles available, in 8 different colors — and while my shirt was about wine… there are shirts for milk lovers, tea drinkers, coffee connoisseurs, and beer buddies. This creator has you covered! Check it out below!

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!


Here’s the details!

Skin — [The Skinnery] Judy

Eyes — IKON Immortal Eyes – Coffee

Hair — MOON {Hair}. Spit at the Stars – (0L Lucky Letter Board/Group Required/100L to join the Group)

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…


Here’s how to write your own fairy tale…

Welcome To Fantasy Island!

71415 tiffany 1

I always wanted to say that in my best, most romantic Spanish accent possible. For me growing up, Ricardo Montalbán was very cool, and when he greeted the guests on the TV show Fantasy Island with that iconic greeting, I realized nothing in the world was cooler than being a very rich man in a white suit. Oh yeah, the show had all kinds of mushy nonsense in it as well, but for me it’s the suit that I find unforgettable!

My memories of that show came flooding back when I saw what Tiffany Designs has put out as a group gift: this fantastic white suit! Now, it isn’t exactly the same suit as he wore in that tropical paradise, but it doesn’t matter. It is beautifully made and gives that same “I am so rich, I am going to order extra hot sauce on my chicken wings without giving it a second thought” kind of look. The Tiffany Designs Rey Mesh Formal Suit in white comes in two pieces: The upper (consisting of the white jacket, black shirt and dark red tie ) and the lower (the white suit pants). Each piece is offered in five sizes to help you get a good fit. If you click on the picture above and then click once more to zoom in, you can see it is nicely textured too. The suit is a FREE group gift, but Tiffany Designs will cost 50L to join. This outfit alone is worth that. The group gift will likely be changing this weekend so run there to pick this up as soon as possible and get ready to pick up another quality outfit in just a few more days. In real life, this kind of clothing wouldn’t last ten minutes on me without getting ruined in some random, yet entertaining, way. This is about fantasy though, and not practicality. So, chicken wings be damned! I finally have my fantasy summer suit!

71415 mwdksw1

Getting out of the summer sun, I couldn’t wait to show you a new hunt prize from the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt that just started two days ago. The Moon Willow Designs Ven Outfit in Tan is a stylish set consisting of an earth tones vest with a very detailed (but easy on the eyes) fabric texture and a tan shirt designed to be worn under it. The shirt looks sharp and is well textured, but carries the shadow of the vest on it, so that using it without the vest is unlikely. Taken as a unit though, both pieces look very nice together and would be a trendy choice to wear as the summer begins to wane and the nights grow cooler. The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt prizes cost only 1L, and the hunt object you are looking for is a rolled up scroll or map.

Lastly, I had to indulge in my Siamese cat fascination a moment. The coolest cats I ever shared space with were Siamese. The Kitty Shape Wear “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt has a cute cartoon featuring two of them on the front. As an experienced Siamese cat person, I can tell you most assuredly they are plotting something evil together. Still, when you look that good, a li’l bit of evil is entirely forgivable. The shirt is tan, comes in five sizes and is wide at the bottom to avoid conflicting with mesh jeans. Finding something to wear with it will be a breeze. The “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt is a 1L prize from the Cats Hunt and the hunt object you are looking for is a small paw print.

Well, I shall wave my farewell from my own personal Fantasy Island, where I stroll about unworried about getting catsup and mustard all over my dapper white suit. Maybe the time has come for me to begin the next phase of my life: the “Gentleman Cat Rancher” phase. Until I do, however, have fun and I’ll see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [1]

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!


Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

ND/MD Little Me Midsummer Unicorn Fully Mesh Petite Avatar – (1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt Gift)

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!
