Before the Rain



Before the Rain

As we all know by now I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Medieval Fantasy Hunt items. While wearing the free MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia, I felt transported, inspired by another time and place. I’m pleased my guy was willing to participate and help me capture this moment while showing off the male MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia. I considered writing a little narrative to go with this photo, but I’ll leave that to your imagination and just tell you about the freebies

Kimonos! There’s something majestic about a kimono in my opinion. These gorgeous his and hers matching kimonos are the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize at Secrets of Gaia. I love all the attention to detail in them. The women’s kimono includes matching flats, and hand fans (not shown) and the men’s gift includes the kimono only. 

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

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL) + Alpha Layer 

Hunt Hint: Let me check you out. (The male gift and the female gift are hidden together.)

It’s a Cover Up

It's a Cover Up

Well, I guess every beach day has to come to and end. O(9r at least, I need to take a break. And what do you need when you take a break from all the sand and surf and fun in the sun? That’s right… a cute suit cover up!

Gotcha Covered

Sexy Princess has us covered with the adorable ‘Jacintha Jumpsuit’ which is the new free group gift. Of course, you can wear it any way you choose… this would be a sexy little number at any club night… But I thought it was a perfect swim suit cover up. You will get a ton of choices as Sexy Princess has given us a full fat pack to play with in pretty florals and bold solids. Extra nice… The Sexy Princess Group is totally free to join!

Horse of Another Color

Horse of another color

Most girls go through that “Horsey” phase. Some of us… never grow out of it.  I remember happily cutting out every picture of horses I found and pasting them in an old photo album when I was a kid. That album was my pride and joy. You know…. now that I think of it, all my horses here in Second Life are kind of like that old album. But these guys are much more fun!

Horse of another color

Good ol’ Jack has a shiny new coat thanks to one of my favorite shops; The Flying Pony. This beautiful ebony coat is “Echo” and I picked it up for free by stalking the Lucky Chairs.  The coat features two hind socks and a little star marking. The build of the coat is just gorgeous and Jack looks amazing. All you need to do is join the free Flying Pony Group and have some patience and a little luck.

“Echo” is available for The Water Horse Riding horse as well as the Teegle Avatar and the Teegle Animesh pet horse. BUT… Echo will only be around for a limited time as a free Lucky Chair prize so don’t delay!!

Lake Day

Lake Day

I remember waiting so eagerly for summer. Three months stretching out on front of you with no school, no homework, no tests or teachers.  It was bliss! I’m definitely getting that summer-time bliss vibe from Graffitiwear’s latest Group Gift. At least, I’m certainly feelin’ all breezy and summery in it! I think it’s time to head for the lake.

July

This is the ‘July’ crop top from Graffitiwear for us VIP group members. There is a small one time 25 Linden fee to join the group but I think it’s well worth it. There are always fresh new gifts each month plus a group lucky board and Midnight Mania. Plus, the quality of the gifts is second to none. even this simple little crop top is wonderfully built and detailed and it comes with a HUD for one of six color patterns to choose from.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

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!
