A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!

A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

All the Sweets

Snapshot_001

I’m still gleefully unpacking gifts from the Womenstuff Hunt. I feel like I’ve made away like a bandit this month will all the goodies! And I’ve put together a look for you with three of the gifts I found that I really like!

All the sweets…

My sweet (and exclusive) dress if from Robot dolly. It’s yours if you stop by their main-store and hunt down that little red t-shirt and buy it for 1L and it’s yours! This cutie comes in lots of mesh sizes to fit your needs.

Mesh sizes included:

  • Classic XXS – L + alpha layer
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Shoes too!

I also stopped by SoHoe Shoes where I grabbed the Kate heels as part of the Womenstuff Hunt, hunting down that little red t-shirt and buying it for 0L and discovered that they matched my cute new mini dress just perfectly. These come in fits for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and are cute as a button in pink and white.

Snapshot_002

One more stop!

I teleported over to Hot Fuss for just one more stop for the day and was rewarded with their cute free and exclusive gift for the Womenstuff hunt. I love this necklace! It has a sort of mystical boho feel with its lavender eye and silver diamond eyelashes. And for the price of free you can’t beat the deal! Pick this gift up to wear!

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 🙂

Oh baby…

Lush_001

It’s baaaaaack… that ever popular dirty little secret that we love to hunt for… the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt! And do I have some hunt finds for you!

Oh baby…

I did my hopping around the grid for this hunt, but I ended up back home curled up on the edge of my bed in creamy lace, courtesy of @rOrO and their free white lingerie gift that is part of the hunt. You’ll get a pair of panties and a very sheer baby doll top that is split down the front to reveal your belly button. I had to do some strategic camera angles to even show this off at all! It even includes lace gloves in an omega applier (I forgot to put them on… doh!) but boy is this lingerie pretty!

Lingerie & panty sizes included:

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

Heels!

What do you think of my heels? I picked these up free as part of the hunt as well from Sevyn East. I failed to get a close up, but if you click on the picture to bring up flicker and then click for a close-up, you’ll see that my pink heels are covered with unicorns! How cute is that! I thought it was a perfect touch to go with my lingerie. These cute heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

le 4 Juillet

le 4 Juillet

Growing up, one of my favorite classes in high school was French, and I had an amazing French teacher who was French-born. We would celebrate Bastille Day on July 14th, and my French teacher was always great about recognizing both the 4th of July as well as Bastille day, and we would have celebrations for both as she would teach us the importance of both holidays and how they were similar and how they were different. I admired her a lot.

I thought of her today as I stopped on my gift rounds and put together my outfit. I thought of her as I thought about the importance of fighting for human rights, freedom, and things we believe in. She was an inspiration to me. So this post is for her… my le 4 Juillet!

Pick up your heels!

Graffitiwear put out two really terrific gifts for the month of July, so pick up your heels and get down to the store to pick them up! If you are already a subscriber member, you should have received the free July Subscriber gift, which is this great set of Strappy Blue heels. They come in a box that includes heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, as well as a pair that says “Map” that I’m not familiar with. If you’re not a subscriber, just slab that board and the heels will be delivered to you!

A new dress!

My new dress is the July group gift. Just wear your Graffitiwear group tag and pick up this July dress which is perfect for any July celebration.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New hair too!

I’ve been showing you some of the great gifts from the Hair Fair here and here, and I’m back again with another great style. I love this edgy look from KoKoLoReS called “Sniper.” I think it’s super sexy, and it’s not only free but it comes in a fatpack of colors too!

Again I went to the cam area and shopped from there, using the trick that I told you about in my post here to be able to select things from long distances. I picked up this style and was thrilled!

Happy cam shopping at the Hair Fair! There are so many wonderful gifts to be had!

Bike-Riding Attire

Bike Ride

Hello FabFree! *Waves!* I’ve been busy moving in real life to a new house and it’s kept me away (and very busy). I just put the finishing touches on my new kitchen! I moved from an apartment to a house and now have a back yard! I’m so excited! My new neighborhood has sidewalks that are great for bike riding, so I thought a bike ride in second life would be perfect to commemorate my return to FabFree after my hiatus! I found this quaint neighborhood with a bike rezzer and took a ride!

My riding attire…

… is almost entirely from one place! You’ll want to pick up all these goodies to enjoy for your own adventures!

Feeling Lucky!

I guess it was my lucky day at Graffitiwear as well! I won both this shirt and these shoes on “lucky” items. The shirt is from the Group Only Lucky Board at Graffitiwear. The group is only 5L and gives you access also to a Midnight Mania Board as well as a monthly group gift, so it’s well worth joining. My letter came up and the Silk Top was mine! It comes with a color change hud that includes 8 different textures. Sizes included: Standard Mesh XXS – L and Maitreya.

I also took a dive into the free Lucky Dip and came up with the free pair of bunny shoes you see in the picture! How cute are these! You’ll get them in black and white both, as well as fits for both Slink and Maitreya feet!

Top it off!

I really loved the Subscriber Gift at Graffitiwear for June. If you are not currently a subscriber, be sure to go subscribe and get your free Flower Head Wreath to decorate your favorite hair style. If you are currently a subscriber and missed getting the gift, just slap the sign above the subsciber and it will be delivered to you for you to wear!

Spumped by That Vintage Touch

Rev me up! I’m ready to ride! And a little Vintage Touch added to my inventory was just the attitude adjustment my wardrobe needed to spruce up my Sunday stop at BB’s Diner in Second Life!

The Vintage Touch [1]

You still have a few day’s left to catch the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale. So before time runs out, make sure you stop by the Vintage Touch Cart to check out their fabulous mesh T-shirts. These classic designs are only 10L each, come in all the standard sizes, and are transferable for gift giving too!

The Vintage Touch Cart also has a special deal for you while you are at their cart! If you touch the Landmark giver to their main store, it will give you a free gift and then you can travel to their main store where their line of zodiac pendants and rings are currently on sale for only 10L each as well!

Each ring or pendant package includes both a male and female item in two sizes. Astrid is wearing the Capricorn set above and below is a picture of the full line up of all the zodiac styles available!

The Vintage Touch [3]

Okay, so I couldn’t resist a stretch out on top of the convertible I found outside of the diner… but only because I wanted to show you these fabulous SHOES! Oh my goodness! You simply must make a hop stop to shop at Pure Poison to nab up these heart-popping Leila Spumps. Yes! I said spumps! If you are wearing your Pure Poison Group tag you are eligible for a free spin on the Leila Gacha and can get a pair of these fantastic spumps for free! I didn’t get the rare, but the gift gacha granted me a pair in black, so I was just as spumped (pun intended)!!!

Best yet? Right now the Pure Poison group is FREE to join, making this a FREE gift! This may be a limited time offer, as I do remember the group having a fee in the past, so be sure to nab up your group invite ASAP!

The Vintage Touch [2]

Now if wine and burgundy aren’t your thing, don’t let that deter you from stopping by the Vintage Touch Cart to pick up a T-shirt. As you can see below, the variety is terrific. There are 8 great styles available, in 8 different colors — and while my shirt was about wine… there are shirts for milk lovers, tea drinkers, coffee connoisseurs, and beer buddies. This creator has you covered! Check it out below!
