Morning run

Morning run

Back to basics

I’ve been stuck on dresses and skirts lately and while there’s certainly nothing wrong with indulging your more feminine side, it’s time to do away with frills and fringes for something more sporty. Early morning jogs are perfect for chasing away the blues of being stranded on a deserted island and speaking of perfection the Neva outfit from Tentation was just the thing I needed for this outing. It’s always a good idea to stock up on basics for those days when you just want to slouch around at home or go for a run with your polar bear cub and the Neva outfit with it’s baggy off shoulder sweater and comfortable leggings afford just that. After spending days with pastels the cool gray and off-white color scheme of this outfit were a nice change and I did like the eye-catching asymmetrical pattern on the front of the sweater. The sizes for the Neva outfit are as follows;

Sweater:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • 1 size for the Belleza mesh body
  • 1 size for the Maitreya mesh body
  • 1 size for the Slink mesh body

Leggings:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • 1 size for the Belleza mesh body
  • 1 size for the Maitreya mesh body
  • 1 size for the Slink mesh body

There are also separate alpha layers for the sweater and leggings available in the folder should you decide to wear these articles of clothing as separates. Otherwise, there’s also another alpha layer included should you want to wear the entire outfit together for the day. The Neva outfit costs just 10L and can be found with other great low-cost outfits and gifts at the Tentation main store so take a while to poke around and who knows what might catch your fancy.

But let’s not forget about the pink

As in sneakers. If you’ve been following the developments on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift list, you’ll know that Ollie’s Follies have updated their gift to a darling pair of pink camo sneakers. Not only are these a great girly update to the classic camouflage pattern but are classic feet friendly as well. In the gift package, you’ll receive a great alpha layer for your feet and these sneakers come equipped with a resize script making refitting a breeze. Should you happen to kill the scripts before you’re happy with any changes, however, permissions are set to copy so you can simply rez out another pair and start over. The Flowerbed Camo sneakers come free with your FabFree group tag and as always there’s no cost to join the group. While you’re at the store don’t forget to hit that no group needed midnight mania board and keep your fingers crossed for that 100L gift card prize. For a closer look at those sneakers check out the group gift listing page {HERE}.

And that’s a wrap. I really have to go see if Commander hasn’t stuck his nose into one of these houses looking for breakfast. Till later guys!

Ice Dreams

Ice Dreams

Nostalgia.

Things disappear in Second Life really quickly don’t they? I was going through my landmarks folder and discovered that some of the places that I used to visit have either changed drastically or are altogether gone. It was a bit of a relief to discover that Ice Dreams and the picturesque boardwalk that it’s standing on is still there. The Baja Norte sim was one of the very first sims I visited when I rezzed and I still remember trying to figure out how camera angles and windlight settings worked right in front of this little ice cream stall. Those attempts have long been bined (why I thought neon, drop waist medieval gowns were a good idea is beyond me) though I think that the results of my second attempt could certainly be a keeper.

Here are the details;

 All it takes is an inspiring hat,

Being on a bit (loosely putting it) of a hat binge recently, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the updated Fabulously Free In SL group gift from Belle Epoque was a simple yet elegant straw hat. It was as if I couldn’t get it out of the box fast enough, oohing and ahhing all the way at its pretty textures and the white ribbon detailing around its crown. It added a nicely feminine touch especially when paired together with the green leaves and lovely white carnations that sit on one side of the hat’s brim. To get a little bit more technical about things, the hat comes with a nifty resizer script and permissions are set to copy so that you can make as many backups as you want.

Well, it looks like I’m ready to keep the sun out of my eyes this upcoming Spring; and all for free too as there is no cost to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. Just wear your group tag when clicking on the vendor and you’ll be good to go. Still hazy on how to join the group? Visit this page {HERE} and take a step closer to collecting all the free gifts that we have on our listing.

A generous gift card,

Last Friday, Pru did a post about FabFree Designer Ollie’s Follies and my curiosity was piqued when I saw that they were offering a 100L gift card on their midnight mania board. She went on to detail that a group tag was not needed to smack the board and with a very low goal (10!) to lock the it, I couldn’t resist popping down to give it a tap as well. With my free gift card in hand I explored Ollie’s Follies further and found not a few things that caught my fancy. Foremost was the Lysa dress which comes in an array of colors and prints (pictured is the pale blossom color). The style of the dress, with it’s V-shaped neckline and belted waist went quite nicely with Belle Epoque’s Straw Hat and the girly look I was going for. The Lysa dress comes in five standard mesh sizes, though there are sizes for mesh bodies sold separately at the store as well, with a good alpha layer included. Usually this classic little number is priced at 150L though with my gift card activated I ended up only forking out 50L for it which was just wonderful. While you’re there at Ollie’s Follies don’t forget to grab your Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well!

Great weekly deals,

It’s 50 Linden Fridays again! There’s a great group of designers for this round that will surely leave you spoiled for choice. I’ve never missed on getting a hair pack from Wasabi Pills every time they participate in 50 Linden Fridays and this week was no different. The side swept Olivia hairstyle was a great whimsical fit to today’s outfit and comes with a Hud of 7 varied colors to choose from.

The second item I picked up from this week’s 50 Linden Fridays was the Kismet socks from Luxuria. These delicate over the knee socks with its pretty lace fringe comes in eight solid colors (white shown in picture) and can be used by most avatars as it comes in the following sizes:

  • System layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink and mesh bodies compatible with the omega system.

If you’d like either item for your virtual inventory, it’s highly recommended that you do so quickly as these deals are available for Friday only.

And a ton of likes.

Remember those heels from Essenz that I blogged about a couple of days ago (hint hint)? Well, since achieving 2500 likes on Facebook, the store is giving away a set of the Paris heels in neutral colors for free! While I already own the shoes in those lovely pink shades, it’s pretty great to receive additional colors for it. The gift package includes sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet with a shoe base to help with the fitting. There’s also an easy to use Hud which lets you switch between three colors for the main body of the shoe as well as its sole and fittings. Congratulations Essenz! Hurry down to the store to grab your pair today as these heels are only available until the 19th.

And that’s a wrap. The sun’s going down on Baja Norte and I should go and see if those walruses in the distance would like to share an ice cream cone or four with me. Catch you later and have fun out there guys!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/10/2117 – Ollie’s Follies

Ollie's FolliesHappy Friday Fab Free’rs! Even better, Happy Fab Free Designer Friday! My apologies for the rather late in the day post. This week I am pleased to share with you a little about a shop called Ollie’s Follies. Everything at Ollie’s Follies is bright and colorful, including the mostly casual women’s clothing you’ll find at this bright spot. The clothing is mostly fun everyday casual clothing, however I did spot some dresses as well. One thing you’ll notice right away is that there are lots of opportunities for discounts and gifts. The store is also participating in the Nuts About You hunt. The hunt poster just outside will send you all the information about the hunt.
Ollie's Follies FreebiesAs you enter Ollie’s Follies you’ll be greeted by a colorfully decorated front desk. Here you can get store information and join the Ollie’s Follies group. The group is FREE to join at this time. There is also a re-delivery terminal just behind the desk. I love it when stores are set up to do re-delivery! If you venture to the room left of the desk, you’ll find the Ollie’s Follies exclusive Fab Free gifts. Just look for that colorful Fab Free sign. While wearing your Fab Free group tag, click the vendor and get your gifts! Don’t forget to scroll through the gifts, there’s more than one. Just in case you missed it, Edi blogged these great Fab Free group gifts in her post here. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Once you’ve picked up your Fab Free gifts, explore your way to the right side of the shop and you’ll find more gifts and goodies.

There is a Midnight Madness board that is giving out a FREE 100 linden Ollie’s Follies gift card. There’s no need for any groups to join this board, and just like the board says, everyone wins! I would say that 100 lindens would go to a long way toward trying a few items out if you’re new to the Ollie’s Follies brand. Also the gift cards are transferable so you can pass one to your friend, your sister, or perhaps your significant other if you don’t want to keep it for yourself. I also spotted a few weekend sale items in the same room. So if you’re looking for a cute spot to do a little shopping and score some freebies this weekend, Ollie’s Follies might be just the spot!

Mix and Match it up

Mix and match it up

Hello, FabFree! Did you know that the group gift from Ollie’s Follies is out?

I don’t know about you but I keep a very, very close eye on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift listing found {HERE}. It is updated on the regular and I don’t want to miss out on even one of the awesome and free gifts put out by our Fab Designers. You can be sure that there was much excitement when I saw the latest addition to the list from Ollie’s Follies as not only did both gifts cater to classic and mesh avatars, they could be used as separates as well.  Pretty sure I left dust bunnies in my wake as I rushed over to get my hands on these new wardrobe staples.

Before we begin, though…

Alright, before I jump in there’s one very important thing that you should do (if you haven’t already) and that is to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. All you have to do is cut and paste the following link into the local chat inworld and click the link;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  The group is free to join and there are no more steps after that. Are you all set? Let’s go!

So that picture on the right.

Since I got too excited and did up two looks for this gift, I’ll be talking about the picture on the left first before moving on to the right.  What you’ll see on the left is the Harlowe Cardi Combo, a snug and beautifully textured long cardigan that comes with the grey tube top. In RL I really do love pieces of clothing with inserts like these as they save time on styling and that fact as not changed in SL. The combination of reds, greys and subtle greens flow well together and bring to mind the coming festive months not to mention the chevron patterns all over the cardigan are deliciously eye-catching.

As I’ve mentioned above, the Harlowe Cardi Combo caters to both classic and mesh avatars. If like me you chose to go with the classic and mesh package you’ll receive the outfit in five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. In the package, you’ll also receive an alpha layer for easier fitting. On the flip side, should you chose the package only for classic avatars you will receive the outfit in five standard sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer for the fitting.

I’ve paired up the Harlowe Cardi Combo with the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE] Designs that you can get for just 25L by hunting cute little ghosties at the Spookzilla event. The skirt comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and sizes for the Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass bodies. You’ll get a spiffy alpha layer in the package as well. As a fan of denim, this skirt was a must have for me and the artful blood splatters simply sealed the deal.

The footwear pictured on the right is the free gift from Black Arts that is currently out for free at the Trick of Treat Lane event. The Halloween edition of the Gothic Lolita shoes is simply to die for and I just adore the details on of the skull and buckles. Mesh feet are not a requirement as the shoes come with a shoe base and an alpha layer. The Trick or Treat Lane event ends on the first of November.

Remember the Hocus Pocus event that I talked about in my post {HERE}? Well, I hit more of the participating stores and got lucky! The Mariska hairstyle that is pictured on the right is from KoKoLoReS and could be available for free to you with a little luck and magic on your side. This sweeping updo comes with a hud with six different color combinations and a tintable hairbase. If the magic is a little lacking on your try you can simply purchase the hairstyle for 50L.

Now to the left!

The high waisted trend is something that I follow pretty closely so I was pleased when I saw the other part of the free group gift from Ollie’s Follies. As with the Harlowe Cardi Combo, these Huez leggings cater to both classic and mesh bodies as well. I opted to get just the classic package which contains five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer, which is the one pictured. On the other hand, the package for both classic and mesh avatars include five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) and sizes for the Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You’ll also receive an alpha layer for the fitting. I am just in love with the unique silver color of the Huez leggings and will definitely be wearing more of it as end of the year festivities draw closer.

Paired up with the Huez leggings is the Skelly swimsuit in Ultraviolet from Alaskametro that you can get for 25 L at the Spookzilla hunt. The Skelly swimsuit comes in classic clothing layers as well as appliers for TMP, Slink and mesh bodies that use the Omega system. Hunt around the Spookzilla sim for five other prizes from Alaskametro and you may be able to find the Skelly swimsuit in two other colors as well as makeup and nail polish. I’ve heard about Alaskametro through posts from Astrid so now’s my chance to try products from this merchant out!

Footwear in the picture on the left is also available in at the Spookzilla hunt. If you catch the ghostie carrying the Hunter boots, you’ll be able to get these amazing pair for 25L. The Hunter boots are a fit for classic avatars or those with mesh feet as the package includes one pair in unrigged mesh, pairs in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and fits for TMP, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. And to top it off there’s a hud included so that you can fiddle around with the look of your new boots.

The hair I’m wearing in this picture is from Love and is also for the Hocus Pocus event. The luck and the right amount of magic you’ll be able to win this beautifully messy hairstyle that comes in a fatpack of colors. Just creep up near the bottle containing the prize and say hocus pocus in main chat to be eligible for the game. Don’t forget the game is case sensitive and you should use small letters. You’ll be able to play once per 24 hours though if you don’t want to wait you can purchase the hair for 50L. The Hocus Pocus event runs until the 4th of November.

 

Mix and match it up headshot

The final stretch!

Not only can you find clothing and footwear at Spookzilla, there are skins to be had as well. The hunt and event are hosted by Toxxic Rhiannyr of Alterego and Enertia so the beautiful skins that you can find in several of the ghosties are from Alterego. Being a skin junkie I love trying out new skins and was very very happy with these beautiful top quality finds. The texture of these skins are super smooth and I just love the dark makeup on them. There’s also something a little different about the ghosties carrying gifts from Alterego and Enertia. If you’re a group member they will yield their gifts for free. Just be sure to wear your group tag while hunting and at the time of me writing this, group is free to join. If you’re not in the group each ghostie will cost 25L

Featured on the right is the Rayne skin in the Pearle tone. The package includes three classic skin with makeup and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. You will also receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. In the picture on the right, I’m also sporting two more hunt prizes from Spookzilla. The pastel goth horns in cream are brought to you by D-Style and the mouth chain by !nfinity. I just love it when I find accessories to compliment an outfit don’t you?

On the left is the is the Runa skin in Petale tone. The package includes three class skin with make and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. As with the Rayne skin package, you will receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. I’m sporting the Skull septum piercing from !nfinity (there are two other septum piercings available in the package as well) and in both pictures I’m wearing the Redrum eyes from !nfinity which includes system eyes, mesh eyes with alpha layer and huds for Catwa heads and mesh heads using the Omega system.

The Spookzilla event is running until the 31st and while I know it’s a bit of a squeeze, as you can see from all the prizes to be had it’s well worth it! Happy Hunting ghosties and happy shopping!
