Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

25L Tuesday_001

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!

It’s Not a Trick!

Trick_002

It’s not a trick!

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I cannot believe July is almost to an end. It seems like the summer just began. I suppose that old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” really does ring true. I don’t know about ya’ll but I’ll be spending at least some of my Saturday picking up the last few July group gifts that I’ve yet to snag.

July at the EMPIRE

One of which is the July group gift at EMPIRE. I’ve been an EMPIRE fan for a long while now and I’m never disappointed in their group gifts. This month’s gift includes 2 pairs of these high wedge type heels with a cut out at the heel, laces at the ankle, and a peep toe. The shoes come in the deep red shade shown, and a shade of blue. Additionally there is a hud to change the tone of the metal bits between black, silver, and gold. The EMPIRE VIP group has a one time join fee of 500 lindens, however they do offer monthly gifts and there are currently a few previous gifts still available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

Leggings FTW

Next up, I am so glad I snagged these cute black leggings from Satus Inc. They are a current group gift available to all Satus Inc. group members. You’ll find this group gift on the table to the left as you enter the Satus Inc. main store. You will need to join the Satus Inc. group and wear the group tag before clicking the gift vendor. There is a one time join fee of just 25 lindens however there are always gifts and sales. Plus, I think these comfy leggings will make everyone’s bum look good!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), FitMesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

FREE Okami Tattoo

Finally, this nicely done tattoo is a current group gift at K-tarsis. This tattoo shop is a new-to-me shop and I’ll tell you there are some eye-opening photos decorating the store. Just be aware you’re in for a bit of tasteful nudity if you shop at K-tarsis. The decor aside, I’m super happy with this Okami gift tattoo. This is another group gift, so you will need to join the K-tarsis group before clicking the gift vendor. The K-tarsis Designs group is FREE to join, making this a totally FREE gift even for new group members. Also, this is a unisex applier tattoo with appliers for both male and female mesh bodies.

Appliers Included: Slink (female/male), Omega (female/male), Belleza (female/male), Maitreya, Signature

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Shore from Here…

Pineapple_001

The shore is pretty from here, and I have stopped to check it out from the dock. Good thing I am all dressed for the part thanks to a few lucky gift finds and a lovely in-store gacha hair that I couldn’t pass up. I thought I’d check in with you Fabulous readers and share my finds with you!

Pineapples!

I love applier clothes and this cute top from Egoxentrikax stole my … pineapple with ITS pineapples! It’s a free group gift (the group is free to join) and you’ll get both system layers and an omega applier that works with most mesh bodies.

A touch of class.

Moondance Boutique has out a new group gift for the month of July. Just like last month, this gift is free and the group is free to join. It includes the necklace and the earrings shown in the picture, and just like last month you get a full color change hud with colors to change the texture of the metal, and both gems in the jewelry for lots of versatility!

Top it off!

I stopped by Wasabi Pills after seeing they had some new hairs out, but ended up navigating toward their in-store Gacha section instead. I came across the Bianca Gacha and really loved the hair style. There are two styles in the machine: style 1 (shown) which has only one side of the hair tucked behind one ear and Style 2 (not shown) which has both sides of the hair tucked behind your ears. For just 75L per spin, this is a chance to win some really pretty hair!

Rainbows

Pride
Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by, hopefully a little retail therapy will help this Monday feel like, well, less of a Monday. As I am certain many are aware, June is Pride month. I think love is love and rainbows are Fabulous, especially when they come in the form of gifts (the rainbows, you dirty birds! *insert winky face here*). With those sweet simple sentiments in mind, I picked up the colorful June group gifts at Flowey and Stix.

First Rain, Then Rainbows

In my last post my plans had been slightly spoiled by a little rain. Since then I’ve been reminded that the rain never lasts forever, and you can’t have rainbows without a little rain. The rainbow on this cute tshirt dress from Flowey has nothing to do with rain I know, but I had to tie things in somehow! Even so, it’s good to remember those two sayings. That said, this thsirt dress is the June group gift at Flowey. It comes in several mesh sizes, and it’s FREE to all group members. There is a group join fee of 100 lindens for the Flowey group, however, I think it’s worth mentioning that I counted at least 6 previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Flat, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
Pride Makeup

Rainbow Brite

I don’t feel at all bad admitting that I’ve been waiting for just the right outfit to wear this eye makeup from Stix. I was really excited to see a look with lots of dramatic color under the eye on the lower lid. I also love the addition of little silver or gold stars. This omega applier makeup is a FREE June group gift at Stix.  In the applier hud you can pick a bright or pastel version of the shadow with either gold or silver stars. Also included in the package are classic system layers. The Stix group is currently FREE to join. Does this gift remind anyone else of Rainbow Brite? One more reason to love it in my opinion!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

CAH TLB

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

Hello Fab Free’rs! Looking for a fun way to spend a little free time? Why not do the Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt! The Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt has been a widely recognized hunt in Second Life for a while now. Sadly, this is the last year the hunt will run. It’s been a minute since I did a hunt, and this farewell CAH with an Alice in Wonderland theme was too much to resist. Each prize on the hunt is just 5 lindens. I personally didn’t come across anything for the guys on this hunt, sorry gentlemen, but there are a few furniture and decor items along side the plethora of ladies clothing and accessories. I of course picked out a few favorites to share with you. The CAH will run from now until May 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get hunting.

The Cheshire Cat

Of all the Wonderland characters, the Cheshire Cat has always been my favorite, followed closely by The Hatter. The Cheshire Cat print dress and matching leggings Pru has on are the 5L CAH prize at The Little Bat. The dress and leggings can be worn together or separately. You also get a color change hud for the dress, there are 4 Wonderland themed prints to choose from, or you can pick from the 16 additional solid color options. The dress and leggings come in the following mesh sizes: standard, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody. The leggings come in standard mesh sizes also, and a TMP size.
CAH Prizes

Gotta Love a Messy Bun

I love an up-do with bangs. This messy bun hairstyle is the CAH prize at lock&tuft. Just find the cupcake and for 5 lindens you’ll get this cute style in a fatpack of color options. This hairstyle from lock&tuft also has the added feature of touch menu resizing.

Flutter Those Lashes

These playful feathery lashes are part of the CAH prize at ARTE. The lash applier hud works with Catwa heads only. In addition to these pretty purple lashes, there are 3 equally pretty everyday versions. This CAH prize like the others is also just 5 lindens.
CAH Tattoo

Wonderland Ink

Finally, this pretty full back tattoo is the CAH prize at Ripley Bay Tattoos. This 5 linden prize gets you the full tattoo in a full opacity, and a slightly faded version. The hud will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, eBody, and Omega compatible mesh bodies. Also included are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the Details:

Hair – lock&tuft – Bey fatpack – 5L CAH Prize

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Skin –  Essences  – Charlie [Catwa Catya Bento Applier] – Currently @Shiny Shabby

In White

In White_001

Tempt me.

I stopped by Tori’s Stylez because they tempted me with their free hunt gift offering for the Tie the Knot Hunt… I just couldn’t pass it up. Even if you aren’t planning on tying the knot, you just might want some free lingerie, after all!

What you get.

Hunt down the little ring box (there’s a clue where to look if you click the hunt icon at the entrance of the store) and you’ll get a free package of system layers and an omega applier for this pretty white lingerie.

It includes the ability to sort of mix and match so that you can wear different pieces and leave other pieces off. So if you want to wear the bra and panties only, you can! Want to wear the stockings and the bra? Covered! There is also a button to apply the entire lingerie outfit at once, if you don’t want it to be complicated to get all the pieces in the right spot 😉

Besom-e kind of Hipster

Sunglasses
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll tell you how I’ve spent my Sunday, shopping! The Hipster Fair is happening and it ends March 3rd. Most of the designers have set out an inexpensive gift for the event. While you shop, look for the pink and green mustaches at each booth. The pink gifts are women’s only, and the green gifts are male or unisex gifts. Each designer set the cost of their gift, in my experience most gifts were just 1 linden, while some were FREE, and others were as much as 5 lindens. I probably picked up at least 20 gifts! There were so many good items that I’ll be doing a second post with several more Hipster Fair freebies and cheapies. That said I also want to let you know about a special sales event at Besom.

Now, the most urgent aspect of the sale at Besom is that today is the last day! I wish I had caught wind of the sale sooner. Through the end of the day today (I assume, the sale is a “weekend” sale) all individual hair packs at Besom are marked 50 lindens. The purpose of the sale is to help raise funds for the medical bills of an adorable cat named Spirit. I’m not often one to promote causes, because I’m partly a cynical skeptic, but if ever there was a reason to feed my love of hair, the life of a kitty is just the one. Either way, you can’t beat 50 lindens for the quality hairstyles at Besom. The fact that the purchase will likely be helping a beloved pet is just the icing on the cake!

Normally I would go into a little bit of detail about each of the items in the post, however since there are several items in this post and a time sensitivity, I’ll just give you the basics.  Thanks in advance for understanding.  ❤

Hair – *Besom~Weekend Warrior *Essentials* – 50L – Last Day! (Sunday 2/26) 

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Applier) – champagne

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning I was determined to shake it off Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! 😉

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Très Joli dress from The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Très Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

This adorable plaid bra and pantie set is the December group gift at Sass and it was just too pretty to resist. Did I mention the plaid? Plaid, like paisley is an often irresistable pattern for me. The gift is absolutely FREE, you will need to get “Sassified” by joining the Sass group. The group is FREE to join. This gift at Sass includes an omega applier only. Each piece, the top, bottom, and matching stockings (not shown) can be worn together or separately. Also, you’ll notice there are several other FREE group gifts available.
