Love Story

FabFree Post: Love Story

It’s a classic Love Story

Once upon a time, a girl logs on SL and gets loads of free gifts (the end) from the SL17B Shop & Hop SLife is great today! I popped in the sim and was again in a complete loss for words at the number of shops, sales, and gifts. I laced up my walking shoes and went about collecting some of the free amazing items I will tell you all about in this post.

But first, let me tell you about the group gift Candy Kitten VIP gift out right now! The Superstar Dress made me feel like a modern-day Juliet.  With 12 color options it is easy to find one that will match your mood. Each option is a colored version of a cute floral pattern that perfectly matched the early summer feel going on. So if you aren’t a member of the group, there is a fee of L$400 but I can tell you that I have received a LOT of group gifts that have personally made up for the fee in the last 6 months alone!

Superstar Dress Fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Though you can barely see my nails in this shot, I have to give a mention to alakametro<3 for their as always amazing nail appliers, which are free for you to run by and snag at the SL17B Shop & Hop Event! The gift includes a Maitreya Manicure, Maitreya Pedicure, and Omega Applier version.

Second Life birthday gift

It’s all about the Hair

All good love stories just NEED a Strong Woman with AMAZING hair! Doux delivered 110% without fail! This amazing free hair is also at the SL17B Shop & Hop and is a MUST snag while there! Coming with various sizes and color huds there is no way you cannot find one that matches your romantic mood.

Color Huds:

  • Black & Whites
  • Blondes
  • Brunettes
  • Fades
  • Naturals
  • Pastels & Ombre
  • Reds

A rose is a rose…

By any other name, would it be as sweet if it was free like the adorable Flowerpots from Astralia?! I don’t think so! I am in love with them and the moment I put them out I knew I was going to keep them up as deco (for as long as I keep THIS house up) for my romantic balcony. This free gift is again another item from the SL17B Shop & Hop (Have I convinced you to dedicate time to get in yet?) the flowers look like they were painted with watercolors to show some beautiful rainbow hues for your eyes to swoon over.  The free gift comes with two options, with and without metal – this is so you can either attach to your house or the railing.

Last by not least the final free gift I have to share with you in this blog is the confetti, it comes from Dahlia and again another amazing item from the SL17B Shop & Hop Event. (no seriously get those tp hammers going!) Inside the box, there are three color options (colorful, Halo, and Rose Gold) with two shape options, a circle and for those who want to be cooler, a square 😉 *pun intended* So why are you still reading? Get going and snag your gifts before the birthday bash ends!

Wicked

Steam Hunt 1

Hello Faboulouses! I don’t know if any of you readers are familiar with the book and musical Wicked, but this post was based on it. The novel’s protagonist, called Elphaba, is based on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. Now I look just like her- witchy green skin and all- except I’m in steampunk attire too! I’ll be showing off this green skin 75 L promo, some more freebies from the steam hunt and a free hair in this post. Buckle up; this is a long one!

More Steam Hunting

I finished the Steam Hunt IV, and this is an outfit I came up with using the goodies from the hunt! I am featuring the free hunt prizes from Razmataz, Prism Designs, Dragon Lady’s Closet, Adele Arts, Pixel Box, Destiny’s Designs, and Sweet Revolutions. The STEAM XV’s grid-wide hunt is free and going on until March 31st- so get out there hunting to get these cool finds!

First off- my outfit is the prize from Destiny’s Designs. The top is a system top I have applied using bakes on mesh (BOM), and the skirt comes in fitmesh and mesh standard sizes (S-XL) which will fit a variety of mesh avatars with some help from your alpha hud. The lantern I am holding is one of five prizes from Pixel Box on the hunt. I also used one of the “Steampunk poses” from Razmataz in this shot.

The gate in behind me is the prize from Sweet Revolutions– it can be rezzed anywhere and be used for landscaping or sim-building- how cool is that!

Steam Hunt 2/Ritual Skin

This dashing hat, which includes a top hat for men as well, is the prize from Dragon Lady’s Closet and you can find these chic boots from the prize box from Prism Designs. Underneath my skirt, I am wearing some lovely omega applier tights which are in the hunt gift from Adele Arts.

Estha & Osha

I stumbled across a promo at Ritual Skins right now, where you can get 2 skins for the low price of 75 Linden. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the skin, but it also comes with a number of head appliers, body appliers, ear appliers and omega if you haven’t switched over to BOM yet. The skin comes in 2 shades: Estha and Osha, and you can wear the skin with freckles, without freckles and with black or white brows. I am currently wearing Estha. The skin can be worn as part of a fantasy outfit and the duo even includes elf or faerie ears. The shade of both skins is green, and it’s really beautiful. It reminds me of the character Elphaba from the book and musical Wicked, which I love. This green skin duo will be 75L until Midnight SLT on Friday, March 27th. As far as I know, there will be a weekly promo at Ritual for this prize so keep an eye out- especially if you love fantasy skins.

Head Appliers Included

  •  LAQ
  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Catwa
  • Omega

Body Appliers Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic
  • Omega
  • V-Tech
  • AMD Bump

Ear Appliers Included

  • Soul Ears
  • Bentobox Ears
  • LOGO ears

Green Locks

It isn’t easy being green, especially when you don’t have much hair to match your own skin in your inventory. Luckily Firelight! still has their free group gift out from March 2019 which is a beautiful long and green hairstyle for women. There’s a whole bunch of other gifts to grab while you’re there too! There’s even a brand new green hairstyle to match this skin!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

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.

Pool Side

Pool Side
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m glad you’re here. This cute little pup and I have been having some fun by the pool. Being pools side gave me the perfect excuse to wear this cute little outfit from Tiar. It’s one of the many current Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. I also picked up this cute upper-body tattoo by Primal on the Marketplace after Love pointed it out to me. I really like the freckle-like hearts. I hope you enjoy these fabulous freebies!

The Outfit – This cute little two-piece is perfect for lounging by the pool or walking along the beach. It comes in several mesh sizes and is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. You can pick it up at Tiar while wearing your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. At the Tiar landing point you can take the teleporter to the gifts area, or just head strait to the back of the store. This Fab Free gift along with a gift for the guys is waiting with the Tiar group gift, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Tattoo – I really like that this tattoo by Primal gives you little hearts across your chest and shoulders, as well as on your hands. I think it’s a very dainty tattoo. It is free on the Marketplace. With this free gift you’ll get Omega appliers and classic system layers in Faded, Normal, and Fresh options. The system layers make this tattoo suitable for classic avatars as well as mesh.

P.S. Two of the pool-side props are Marketplace freebies/cheapies I wanted to let you in on as well. I’ll link them in the credits with their cost so you can pick them up as well!

Pastel Procrastinator

Pastel Procrastinator

I’m having one of those days, where I get up, plan everything I’m supposed to do, get really ready for it all, and then next thing I know the day is done without much actually having been accomplished.  On days like that I try to remind myself that I’m allowed to relax, and kick back now and then.  Aline, however, has other plans.  She got her hair did, slicked on makeup and started bounding about doing all sorts of creative things.  I dunno why, but she never really seems to need much of a rest… 😉

Best Tressed

I caught up with Pr!tty, and it seems they’ve moved again.  If you didn’t get a chance to get group gifts last time, or had issues landing in the store, you can try again at another build located on the Senses sim.  I landed just as my letter came up on the lucky board.  I activated my group tag (a group that is currently free to join), and clicked upon the board.  This lovely creation was delivered to me, and I was happy to see it came with some cute sparkly ears too.  My fave!

Pretty in Pink

I also managed to get some free makeup today!  It’s always nice to find a cool subscriber gift, because it doesn’t take up any group space, and once in a while you log in to find a nice surprise delivered straight to your inventory.  This month, Alma have sent out really nice pink eye shadows and lip gloss.  There’s also a green version for those who are feeling a tad more adventurous!  It comes in an Omega applier, so it works with a relay on most mesh heads.  Once you have clicked on the subscriber, click the poster again to see past notices, and there you will find the March Subscriber gift waiting for you.

Wish getting ready was this easy in RL!

Stay Weird

Stay Weird

I’ve always been a proponent of being yourself.  I get it though, sometimes in RL it can be hard to dress the way you want, act the way you want, or do the things you want to do.  That’s the best thing about SL.  Escapism at its finest.  In SL, I choose to Stay Weird.  Luckily for me, there are loads of creators out there who let me be who I want on a budget!  One of my fave designers, Sn@tch (who are always SO generous), have put out a new group gift.  Read on!

Skirting the Issue

This new group gift at Sn@tch is super awesome.  I like the peekaboo lace on the skirt. It isn’t too over the top in the skin showing department!  You can wear this high-waisted skirt with all sorts of things, but it comes with an Omega applier to add this really cool suspender top to the outfit!  You can always wear them separately too!  The skirt comes in loads of different colours to fit your mood of the day.  You can grab this gift by joining the Sn@tch VIP group for 200L, and clicking on the vendor in the VIP seating area.

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physic
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy

Now, go out my little ones – go out there, and stay weird!

She’s got the look!

Rawr_001

“Heavenly bound
Cause heaven’s got a number
When she’s spinning me around
Kissing is a color
Her loving is a wild dog
She’s got the look”

Get the look too!

You can get the look for free! I have some special gifts to list off to you starting with some sweet deals at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Right now the group join fee is free (I’m not sure how much longer this promotion will last, so hurry!). For the month of January, your group gift is 400L in-store credit! Just go to the credit terminal with your group tag on and click it to get your credit to go towards any purchase!

Don’t forget that 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a nice assortment of lucky letter boards, mini mania boards, and midnight mania boards accessible to group members. While I was there picking up my free 400L store credit, my letter came up on one of the lucky boards, and I got the Vyra skin for free! It includes the face and body Omega appliers in a full fatpack of skintones! I was thrilled with this free beautiful skin pictured above.

More free stuff…

Byrne has out their free goodies for January as well and RAWR are they gorgeous! I picked up the Jungle Queen dress in the group notices (or you can pick it up at the main-store) and the subscriber sent me the matching gloves. The dress and gloves both come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza to fit your mesh body needs.

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.
