Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Strolling Through Starlight Shores

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  The pupster and I just had to get away from the last minute shopping and wrapping.  It was a bright, sunny day and we both needed a walk in the country air.  If you haven’t visited the Starlight Shores sim, I highly recommend a trip.  It’s the perfect spot for a relaxing get away.  There is a pond for skating, wildlife and gorgeous landscaping to enjoy.  Speaking of places to enjoy, have you visited the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale going on at The Wash?

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

There are so many budget friendly offerings at The Wash.  My favorite has to be the Krystal Outfit from Finale Couture’s cart.  Featuring a long jacket with grayish blue accents, coordinating thigh high boots and optional fur collar and cuffs, this outfit will have you suited up for a chilly day in an elegant style.  The main body of the coat has a woven texture which is really well done, and gray trim and buttons provide the finishing touches.  The best part was the entire package cost just 10 Linden dollars!  The sale runs until January 2nd, so you have plenty of time to take a stroll around the sale and pick up some goodies for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until next time, happy shopping!

Wintry Afternoon Walk

Wintry Afternoon

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are all set for the upcoming holiday.  Ripley and I have been running quite a few errands and sneaking in some last minute shopping.  In the midst of all the holiday bustle, I wanted to make sure I told you about a sweet free outfit that you can pick up just for being members of Fabulously Free in SL as well as some free hair too.

A Little Christmas Dreaming

The Xmas Dream outfit from Alias! is perfect for the inevitable last minute trips to the store in the upcoming days.  This free gift features a thick, long sleeve sweater, curve-hugging capris and high heel sandals.  A texture change HUD for the top allows you to select from 8 different texture patterns, so it’s kind of like getting 8 sweaters in one.  I really like the generous length of the sleeves and the high collar.  The jean capris have upturned hems that fall to about mid calf.  Although pretty heels were tucked inside the box, I opted to pull on a cozy pair of boots since I knew the pupster and I would be trekking through the snow.  The shoes really are super cute – I just couldn’t see wearing them for our stroll down the country lane.  To pick up a copy of this free outfit for yourself, just switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the Alias! shop and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Tonic

Santa’s Coming to Town

To add that extra touch of holiday spirit, I decided to wear another free group gift, the No Santa hat and hair from No.Match.  This is one of two hairstyles tucked inside the Carol Meets Santa gift box for members of the No.Match Update Group.  Although I think No Santa is intended for male avatars, it provided the perfect finishing touch for my casual shopping outfit.  A full fatpack of colors for the hair as well as a HUD containing twelve options for the hat’s texture make this a very versatile gift, indeed.  Although I opted not to wear it, the Carol hairstyle (also tucked inside the box) is a really pretty updo with curly locks, a jaunty texture-change bow, an optional pine branch add on, and Christmas earrings.  I’m including the vendor picture below so you can see both hairstyles.  To pick up a copy of Carol Meets Santa for yourself, you do need to be a member of the No Match Update Group, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but you get not one, but two free hairstyles, plus the opportunity to pick up more gifties in the future, so it’s well worth the price!

CAROL meets SANTA

Until next time, happy shopping!

I had a really good day here on the grid. I found free awesome hair and my letter just keep coming up on the lucky chairs! Does it get better than that?

Little Black Dress?

Why, yes, please! And free? Double yes!  This is the ‘Erica’ two piece dress from La Bella Boutique. This super cute lacy LBD is on the lucky chairs now and can be yours for just a little patience. And, well… luck.  Each piece can be worn separately for even more versatility.  The top looks really cute with a pair of jeans for a more casual look.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink

More Free Hair?

Why, yes to that too, please! I’m still unpacking from the Hair Fair and finding great gifts like this one from No.Match. This is No.Girl and it comes with a sweet fat pack of blacks, browns, blondes and reds as well as a separate HUD for the cute little clips. If you want one too, don’t wait around. The Hair Fair and all it’s gifts will disappear on October 7th!

Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars

I really wish the RL Texas would hurry up and cool down. It’s almost October for crying out loud! At least Second Life has nice early Fall places to hang and pretend it’s a nice cool day. I guess I’ll have to comfort myself with some dollarbies and a couple of FREE group gifts.

MarketPlace Madness and Group Gifts Galore

My cute flirty top is from Harmonia and it’s just one little Linden! I picked the blue one but there’s also a purple one to choose from. Harmonia says that there is a limited number of these tops available so don’t delay if you want one.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink
  • TMP

My equally cute flirty hair, No Come On, is from No.Match and it’s one of the plethora of Gifts available to group members. The group is 50L to join but there are THIRTY SEVEN past gifts available! That’s like getting… *whips out her calculator* every gift for 1.35L each! Now that’s a bargain!

One last goody. My pastel eye shadow,”Unicorn Magic”, is from [Pout!] and it is one of the free Group Gifts available in the main store. [Pout!] keeps a nice variety of current and past gifts up for group members all the time. And there’s NO join fee!

Follow me down to the water

Follow me down to the water

Hi there. I’m combining two of my very favorite things today, the beach and a great sale. Because when the sale is on something that I can use at the beach? Well it doesn’t get any better than that!

Sale or Hunt?

I think that the cool event at The Is Wrong might actually be considered a hunt. The way it works is that random things in the store are marked down, so you have to HUNT through all of the vendors by clicking on them to see which things are on SALE for 30L. Spoiler: one of the things marked down is this fabulous bikini BUT there are lots of other clothes and tattoos to be had for cheap as well! The hunt (sale?) lasts until August 15th. The cute kawaii bikini that I picked up is sized for:

  • Belleza Isis & Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

There are also free lucky boards there stocked with great tattoos to keep an eye on while you’re looking around. I won one when I went back to grab the slurl for this blogpost! Who says blogging doesn’t pay off?? haha

Rebellion

Rebellion

Poor Gavin. His car broke down, and I’m on my way to pick him up. But at least he was able to find some awesome gifts before his old car took its last gasp.

A Rebel With a Cause

Rebellion recently set out this Rebellion t-shirt as their newest group gift. It comes in loose, normal, and tucked versions, and in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Lots of previous gifts, such as these Aviator Glasses, are still available.

Crunchy

Gavin’s hair is the latest group gift from No.Match. No Crunch is a long, dreadlocks-style hair for men and women.

A HUD containing 36 different hair colors is included, as well as two HUDs with 24 colors (12 each) for the scarf.

There are TONS of previous gifts for both men and women still available at No.Match, making the 50L join fee totally worth it!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Free Spirit

Free Spirit

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  I had a long, long day, and sure am happy to be on the tail end of the first day of the work week.  I’m popping in with a quick post featuring fantastic free hair for the guys (actually, ladies you could wear this one, too!).

No, Really, I’m Just a Cowboy at Heart

There’s nothing like a cowboy hat to shield you from the elements, and deck you out in a rugged style.  My No Really hat and hair combination is a free gift over at No Match, exclusively for members of the L’Homme Magazine SL Readers Group, which is completely free to join.  The package includes an accessory HUD packed with 12 options for the hat as well as an Ombre tones HUD loaded with 12 varieties for the hair color.  I’m not sure how long this free offering will be available, so if you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, I’d recommend saddling up, and heading over to the shop soon.

Until my next post, happy trails to you!
