Wishing for Winter

Wishing for Winter

It’s the time of year in my world physical and virtual that I start to wish for snow. Perhaps because I almost never get to experience temperatures cold enough for snow where I live, I find that I long for that story-book white snowy winter. I am also so ready to break out the winter wardrobe. Thank goodness Second Life has me covered, here I get my snow, and a pretty stellar closet full of winter clothing. Speaking of clothing, this outfit is the most recent group gift at Vooh.

Vooh

There are actually several group gifts available at Vooh, Group Gift 76 is the most recent. I really like the look of this all-in-one outfit. The jacket, sweater dress, and undershirt are all one piece. I love that it makes me appear as though my hands are tucked warm into my pockets. Also, the outfit includes matching boots, and a beret (not worn). The jacket/sweater dress combo has a color change hud with several solid color options for the main part of the jacket, the dress, the undershirt, as well as the metal parts of the jacket. Additionally the hud will allow you to tint each part, and adjust things like glow and materials. The boots and beret have their own similar customization huds with matching color choices. The required Vooh store group has a join fee of 50 linden, which if you ask me is well worth it.

Jacket/Sweater Dress Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer
Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza (Freya, Isis/Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Fitted Mesh, TMP

Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya (+ a Flat Chest Version)
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique
  • SLink – Hourglass

Sizes Included (gloves)

  • Belleza – Jake

Colour Therapy

Colour Therapy

I’m all about bright colours to spice up the dreary days.  I think that a good purple can change anyone’s outlook, no matter how sour.  If you mix it with colours that make  you vaguely think of a peacock, then I think you’re about to hit a winning combination.  Colour therapy is a thing, isn’t it?

Redeux it all Over Again!

Redeux is celebrating their 3rd anniversary right now, and you know what that means!  Free presents!  I spent ages unpacking after I visited and found all sorts of pretty things.  There seems to be some debate going on about whether you have to join a group to get these gifts or not, but I can tell you that I got them all just by clicking, no group join required.  Do let me know if you experienced something else.  Here’s what I’m showing you right now:

  • FREE dress by Antaya sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE glasses by Noir

Redeux isn’t going to be around for too long, just until April 21st, so make sure you head over there as soon as you can!  You’ll find poses, swimwear, accessories and things to make you laugh, all for free.  Enjoy!

See you colourful cats and kittens later!

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

You Can Pull it Off

You Can Pull it Off

One of the best things about SL is the fact that you can wear clothes that you wouldn’t normally wear in RL.  I mean, I’m sure there’s someone out there who could pull off this striking look in RL, but it ain’t me.  The other facet of me, Aline, can pretty much wear anything and make it look amazing.  I’m sure your pretty little avi will look just as fab!

Vaniteuse

I may be just a little filled with vanity when it comes to my looks on SL, but I suppose that’s what the game is generally about (I suppose you can make it about what you want!).  I found this exceedingly high cut dress by Scandalize and Noir as a free group gift at the Vanity event.  There is also a shorter top version that you could pair with jeans or leggings to create a cool look.  There are few other little gifties in the bag too to go with the outfit – so do check them out!  Just join the Vanity group for free, and pick this dress up right by the entrance!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Peek-a-Boo

Peek-a-boo

Hello again FabFree’ers! I hope your weekend was wonderful and that your Monday is good as any Monday can possibly be!  I am excited to be starting another week of freebie and offer hunting for you all.

Oh Carolina!

Today I am sharing an item that is still out for 55L Thursday, and likely to be so for another couple of days but even so, if you want it, you shouldn’t delay.

Virtue is one of my favourite places to go for classy, ladylike, well made items of clothing, and this top does not disappoint.  It is a brand new release and comes in a variety of shades, and this white colour is on offer for just 55L.  I love the little ties at the wrist, the length is just right and I was able to wear it over many different bottoms without any bleed through – which is a real bonus as far as I am concerned – I love versatile pieces I can wear with lots of different wardrobe staples.

It comes in a humongous list of  sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
  • Slink Physique
  • Large, medium and small for Classic Avatar (alpha included)
  • Tonic fine and curvy
  • Ocacin & Ocacin Voluptuous

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Bonbon Mina
Top – Virtue Carolina (55L Thursday)
Leggings – Neve, Deedee, poetry
Shoes – Phedora Sorcha Flats
Pose – Foxcity Autumn
Background – part of Maya’s Autumn House

Free “Bye Summer” group hunt at Safira

FF3
Hello again FabFree’ers, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you are right now.

I have some exciting news to share today – until Wednesday the 19th, there is a “Bye Summer” hunt at the new Safira mainstore.  You do need to be a group member, but the  group is currently free to join.  You just need to head to the Safira store, which is based on the revamped Scandalize sim, and find 10 watermelons (shown below left corner of the poster below) – thankfully these aren’t tiny, so they are pretty easy to spot – even for me!  Just remember to put your Safira tag on, buy each watermelon for 0L and run home to unpack all your boxes, in which you will find these goodies:

Bye Summer hunt!!

Most of the items appear to have a couple of options included.  I am showing you the floral option of dress #4, but it also comes in the floral/white combo shown on the poster above.  Zsa is a modest little soul so was particularly pleased that this dress, which is very short, comes with an integral “C string”, which comes with a texture change hud and the option to hide it if you wish.

This cute little dress comes in the following sizes:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass

Have fun, happy hunting!

As both Safira and Scandalize are currently holding group hunts on to celebrate the revamped sim, the sim has been very busy this weekend.  For this reason, the Safira hunt has been extended to the 19th.  If you find the sim full, just keep trying, you will get in eventually.  Prior to tp’ing in, I recommend you use the “show friends only” option if you are using Firestorm, and camming rather than trying to walk when you land – unless you are particularly skilled at walking in treacle while being catapulted around on a rubber band.  Sadly, Zsa missed that class at School of SL, so she cams everywhere – well, secretly, she cams everywhere because she is just plain lazy, but don’t tell her I told you that, it’s our secret, shhhh.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Stealthic – Haven
Nails – Alme Spring Flowers – Vintage (free group gift / 0L / 50L to join)
Shoes – Essenz Mallorca
Dress – Safira – Gwen Floral (Maitreya) (free group hunt gift / 0L / free to join) (hunt extended to Wednesday Sept 19th)
Jewelry – Izzie’s Cowrie Shell necklace, bracelet and earrings
Backdrop – Exposeur – Room of Balloons

Indecisive in Sevilla

FF2

Hello again Fab Free’ers! I hope you  have had a Fabulous week, and that your weekend is off to a good start.  Ready for another free dress?  Keep reading!

Roxanna

I recently shared with you the Hilly Haalan group gift Nadia gown, here.  Today I am bringing you their other new group gift, the Roxanna dress. This dress comes in plenty of sizes and with an extensive texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

Maitreya
Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
Slink Physique & Hourglass
Fitmesh for Classic Avatar (alpha included)

Decisions, decisions

I love love love texture change huds but as an annoyingly indecisive Libran, they give me too many options to choose from and then require me to make – loud gasp – a decision!

I can honestly say that all the choices in the Roxanna hud are lovely, and all very different, both in the colour of the top and the pattern of the skirt.  Which of course made my decision even harder, but this combo kept calling to me, so one decision down.  Then I had the issue of finding the right shoes in the perfect shade, but that is another story for another day…..

Sevilla

Zsa popped to Sevilla for her shoot today, via Minimal, who have a set of 2 backdrops in today’s Saturday Sale, well worth picking up at just 70L for the two.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Murray, Demi
Nails – Alaskametro “Flowerpress” nail art
Dress – Hilly Haalan Roxanna (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Shoes – Essenz Slovakia
Bracelet – Noir Peace Bracelet
Backdrop – Minimal Sevilla (70L for Saturday Sale)

Rose Gold

Rose Gold

In my opinion, rose gold is the superior gold.  I don’t know why, it just is so much warmer and different.  I like things to be different, I supose.  You can imagine my happiness when I came across a rose gold dress, along with lots of other goodies over at Redeux!

Let’s Redeux It!

The Redeux event this month is chocka with loads of pretty FREE gifts – Just join the Redeux group to pick up some lovely stuff.   I found three that went really nicely together (I do enjoy going to an event and trying to put an outfit together out of the gifties!):

  • Dress by Le Fil Cassé (Comes in two gorgeous colours, and is a Maitreya Lara Exclusive)
  • Sandals by Noir (Sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink)
  • Pose by Serendipity (3 different poses in the pack!)

I am just going to ride this rose gold wave through the day, and enjoy the sunshine!  Redeux is open until June 21st.

Happy shopping!
