The Good Witch of the North

The Witch of the North
Hello There Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in my last post, Sanarae is celebrating their Second Anniversary this round. The event will last about two more weeks, so if you haven’t been by yet you’ve still got a little time. In celebration of Sanarae’s birthday, each of the participating vendors has at least one FREE birthday gift. The gifts do require the Sanarae group tag, however the group is FREE to join. I put this look together while going through the gifts I collected. I love the way these items came together, it’s a complete departure from the look in my previous post. With that in mind, I’ve decided to call this The Good Witch of the North. I hope you like it!

Pearls for Your Hair

The pretty pearl tiara is the Sanarae birthday gift from Letituier. This beautifully detailed FREE gift can be sized via touch menu. To get your copy stop by the Letituier booth at Sanarae and click the birthday cake while wearing your Sanarae group tag.

Pearls for Your Throat

I love how well the tiara from Letituier looks with this choker from Shanghai. This is another FREE Sanarae birthday gift you won’t want to miss. Along with the white pearl version shown, the gift includes the following color versions: black, jade, orange, pink, and nude. This choker can also be resized via touch menu.

Shimmer for Your Eyes

Next up, the shimmery eye shadow Pru has on is the Sanarae birthday gift from Zibska. This FREE makeup applier gift has several color options. I think I’ll be using this often, there’s a color to match just about anything. Don’t forget to join the FREE Sanarae event group before clicking the birthday cake at the Zibska booth to get this gift.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka, Omega

Sparkles for Your Wrists

These pretty bangles are the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from OXIDE. The delicate looking bracelets come with a color change hud so you can choose between 5 metal colors and 8 gemstone colors. The hud also allows you to resize, pose, and delete scripts. Like all the gifts at Sanarae, this one will require the Sanarae group tag.

A Little Bit of Lace

Lastly, the delicate lace camisole top is the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from Milk Tea. This sheer white top with delicate blue flowers was just too pretty to not share. If you want to wear it but have it appear a bit less see-through, wear the top on multiple layers. This gift is an Omega applier only.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Cute Curvy Classy

Cute Curvy Classy

Pastel Dream

Have you ever had rainbow ice cream before? More specifically Paddle Pop rainbow ice cream? It was my favorite growing up (the only flavor of ice cream I’d consume actually) and one look at this pretty pastel offering from Glasgow Grin had me nostalgic for those days all over again. Personally, I’ve always found pastel shades to have a rather dreamy quality about them and when they’ve been mixed together so artfully I find them quite irresistible. Such was the case for the Cutey Dress that’s out right now at Glasgow Grin for the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2. This comfy sweater dress comes in sizes for ebody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass) and Maitreya mesh bodies as well as one standard mesh size for those of us classic avatars. I’m wearing the standard mesh size in the picture above and was pretty pleased with the alpha layer that’s provided as it helped with the fit quite nicely. Cute, curvy, classy indeed! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 are for 1L and the hunt runs till the 31st of January.

Accessorize

Did you guys make New Year resolutions? It’s a little dorky I know but I made a couple for Second Life as well and one of which is to try to pay more attention to the little details when putting together outfits. The other is to clean out the inventory but we’ll see how well that goes. Anyway, I’m on Oxide’s mailing list and discovered that they’ve put out a great pair of hooped earrings for their sub-o members. You can never go wrong with this classic design (especially when wearing a shorter hairstyle) and this well-made pair from Oxide come with a color change hud as well. If you’re not in the mood to stick to gold there are nine other colors to choose from as well. Some other perks of being in Oxide’s sub-o group is that you’ll have access to past sub-o gifts as well (that you can snap up for free) and of course it doesn’t take up those precious group slots so it’s certainly worth checking out.

All nice and manicured

If you’ve been following the blog closely, you’d have seen that some Fabulously Free in SL group gifts is being changed out. It’s really exciting to see what our generous designers have in store for us next! Needless to say, I snapped up the new manicure and pedicure sets from Hello Dave in a jiffy and am wearing the Fairy French set in the picture above. I love the clean, glossy colors and truth be told its stores like Hello Dave that make getting Slink hands really worth it. Hello Dave nails are compatible with Slink hands and hands using the Omega system. To add this set to your inventory for free, simply wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag or if you’re not in the group yet copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . As always the group is free to join! If you’re still not convinced, click {HERE} for a clearer picture on these gorgeous nail sets.

New face for a new year

Last but not least I stopped by 7 Deadly s{K}ins to pick up their January group gift. Carson blogged about the men’s gift {HERE} and I’m happy to report that the gift for ladies is packed full of goodies as well. In the gift package you’ll get:

  • Classic skins in seven tones (caramel, cotton, oak, pineapple, sand, taupe, and walnut)
  • Omega body appliers in the tones listed above
  • Omega head appliers in the tones listed above
  • Slink appliers
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers
  • 2 shapes

7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group join fee of 225L but as you can see it’s well worth the lindens. Not only are their gifts generous, but the faces on their skins are always so gorgeous.

That’s a wrap! I’ve still got a hankering for some rainbow ice cream but luckily it’s not too late to skip on over to the corner store. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Time for a Little SaNaRae

SaNaRae GiftsHello There Fab Free’rs, I’m back with some Fabulous “Halloween” gifts from the SaNaRae event. I know I know, Halloween has come and gone, but really it’s a state of mind, isn’t it? Okay maybe only in my world! Still the current round of SaNaRae started October 25th, and it’s ending on November 18th. That means there’s about a week left to snag several FREE group gifts. I picked out a few of my favorites that I thought looked well together. I call this look “the everyday goth”. I hope you like it!

Starting with the dress, it’s what caught my eye the most. I’m usually not into skulls, just a personal thing, but sometimes I think they work and for me this works. This FREE SaNaRae gift is by BADA. The dress comes in a single mesh size, and of course includes an alpha layer. Aside from the skull design on the top, I really like the almost iridescent look to the blue-green colored skirt.

Next up, these earrings are the FREE SaNaRae gift from Oxide. The best part about these, in my opinion, is that they look so well made. I instantly feel like they’d be heavy. The textures are also nice. This pair of earrings includes a color change hud that lets you pick between 3 dark colors for the stone, and gold or silver for the metal tones. I also like that the metal textures have more of a “brushed” look than an ultra shiny metallic look.

To go with the earrings, I chose this thin black choker with the little silver cross. This FREE SaNaRae gift comes from a shop called C.ment. In the package you’ll find this version of the choker, and one with a red cross rather than silver. The jewelry can be sized via touch script for easy fitting. I will say I had to size mine up quite a bit. I guess I have a big neck! lol That said, I love that chokers are so in right now.

Lastly, I adore this manicure by Nanika, also a FREE gift at SaNaRae. I have seen this spiderweb pattern with a black french tip before, but I think this version is particularly well done. It’s pretty and understated enough that it doesn’t scream Halloween, but still has that playful aspect. I would wear this every day. This manicure set comes with a single hud that works with Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya compatible nails.

**To get these Fabulous Freebies, you’ll need to join the SaNaRae group, and wear your group tag. The SaNaRae group is FREE to join.**
