Love is in the Air

Love is in the air

G’day fab fam!

Love is in the air, my friends!  What with so many hunts revolving around love and Valentine’s and cupids!  But in February, that is to be expected!  Of course we all know what hunts mean… free or nearly free goodies!  Lots of them!  For instance, I found this adorable outfit in the Love Hunt (1L hunt ends 2.28) from Applique’ Chic.  It comes with a HUD for the skirt which includes 6 really pretty color choices.  I had a difficult time deciding!

Both top and skirt come in these sizes:

  • Ocacin
  • Volumptuous
  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Now, I know from experience that we rarely give ourselves enough love.  You are the only one who has always been with you no matter what, and you are *amazing* whether you realize it or not!  So I have an assignment for y’all tonight… Go love yourself, BIG TIME!  You know what you need and what makes you happy, so go do that!  And in case no one has told you today fab fam, I love you and YOU matter!

Space Age Love Song

Space Age Love Song

This is not a drill, FabFree!  There’s 500L in store credit waiting for you at the amaaaahhhhhzing Pure Poison!  I can barely speak from all the excitement, so let’s dive in!

Shhh…Don’t Tell Anyone!

So, I just happened to swing by the store (I am there more often than is strictly necessary – I love Pure Poison a ridiculous amount), and lo! What to my wondering eyes should appear?  500L in store credit for group members.  You can use it to buy whatever your heart desires.  The group is free to join, and there are so many lovely things to buy, including full outfits (some of which are even strippable) and lots of really nice shoes.  I’m wearing the Lilian outfit which comes complete with strappy dress, shirt, leg straps and shoes (all with super extensive HUDs) and only costs 299L, leaving me a good chunk of the gift card left.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Don’t know how long it will be there, so I would hurry if I were you!

Update:  Looks like it’s available til midnight tonight, but will NOT expire.  GO GO GO!

Sweater Weather Season

Sweater Weather Season

It is getting chilly in New York, which means that sweater season is right around the corner.  And what better way to celebrate cold weather and the approaching holidays that with an ugly sweater party?  Luckily, designers on second life have the same idea.  I found this cute “Ugly Xmas Sweater” with a reindeer print under the Christmas tree for 1L at XO Xtra Ordinari (adult sim). The sweater comes in both mens and womens sizes in the box, so no one is left out at the ugly sweater party this year.

I was feeling a bit festive with this ugly sweater, so I decided to track down some makeup to complete the look.  I found this great eyeshadow for free on the marketplace from Absinthe! called “Grinch.” It is a festive read and green combination and comes in BOM.

Watch it Swirl

Watch it Swirl

It’s Sunday and the snow truly is coming down in my part of the world.  That clearly calls for a bit of chilling (literally and figuratively) in questionable outfits while surrounded by things that make me feel cozy.  All I need is a pile of books and a window to watch the swirling snow come down.

That’s Amore

Moon Amore have a few group gifts out, and while I was there a few days ago I noticed this little top that we hadn’t shown on the blog before.  It’s just the right kind of crazy for me, because in my silly mind it can be dressed up or down – and by that I mean, wear it to please yourself on a quiet day, and become a mad sexy superhero hell-bent on global domination on others!   It comes with an HUD to change to several other pretty, shiny hues and is sized for Maitreya bodies.  Anyway, to get yours, and also all the other fun gifts at Moon Amore, just join the group for 55L.

And yes, those are drag queen dolls behind me.  10 points if you can name them!

The darkness of the music of the night

The darkness of the music of the night
I’m sure you’ve all figured out from my posts by now that I love hunts.  I like to visit new sims, find out about new stores and of course, search for fabulous gifts.  I stumbled on The Phantom of the Opera Hunt a few days ago and had to give it a try.  The best part– all the gifts are free.  The hunt took me to Jinx, where I got this Phantom of the Opera pose hud.  (The pose I am doing is called “iaaaa” on the HUD.)  Then later, Fugue, where after some hunting, I found this cute Operetta Dress.

No outfit is complete without some cute lipstick.  Nevrose has a six lipstick set for it’s free group gift. (the group is also free to join.)  It come in 6 colors with Catwa and Leluka appliers.

A Bright Spot

A Bright Spot

Time for a bit of a prance in the woods to clear my head.  I love when the trees give way to wide fields filled with golden blossoms.  Who could want anything more?

It’s a Decoy!

My pretty fluttering top comes from Decoy, and it’s entirely free!  I got it by clicking on their subscriber unit to join.  You’ll find that you’ll have to click on the “History” button that pops up once you’ve joined and choose the item that contains the group gift. The item will then be delivered directly to you.  How sweet is that?

Hey, Look!

The LOOK Event is celebrating their anniversary, so you’ll find that some of the designers have free gifts out.  There is no group to join to grab these, so it’s a quick little trip that won’t take up any of your group spaces.  I picked up this quite different necklace by House of JewelZ.  It comes in a box with a whole set of other matching pieces that will be a cool addition to your collection.  It’s free, just click on the box!

Time for some more soul-searching in the woods!

Still celebrating a day later

Halloween may be over, but I just had to show of one more great Halloween find.  I found these cute tights for free by Fu, who runs the shop Funny Honey. The tights come in six different colors with both BOM and Maitreya appliers.  You can find them at Cafe Nekodamari. (there are also matching mani-pedi set with Maitreya applier for free at her Funny Honey main store.)  These Tara Heels by Dore Papillon Boutique complimented the tights perfectly and were another free gift from the Halloween Sales event running until November 4th.

If you haven’t had your fill of the spooky, Necrotize, by the Second Life Syndicate is open until November 20th.  The theme is Cyber Horror and the free gifts are all in creepy alien eggs in front of the vendor’s booths.  The crop top I am wearing is a gift from Ramen from the event.  Second Life Syndicate is also hosting their own hunt called Halloween at the Headquarters, and all the prizes are 0-10L. The Crucible tattoo from Cubic Cherry (as seen first in this Fab Finds post by Ailne) was free.

The Ghost of Saturday Night

The Ghost of Saturday Night

There is nothing like wrapping up a late night with bite to eat at a quiet diner.  And this retro, greasy spoon is the perfect place to show off my swinging ’60s mod dress I found at RIISE.  Every month, RIISE gives their group members a free 100L giftcard, so I was able to pick up this dress for only 20L.  The group is 25L to join and the monthly gift cards never expire.  This dress is Norah – Edition 4 and has a cute pattern on both the front and back.

The perfect accessory to go match was this chunky, retro style necklace I found as a free group gift at Pure Poison.  It the Gabrielle set and comes with matching earrings as well.  The group is free to join and has many other amazing gifts.

Every good outfit needs a little makeup, right? I am wearing Izzie’s Bunny Lipstick and the Gloom Eyeshadow Pru recently blogged about here.

Hey Mister DJ, put a record on, I wanna dance with my baby!  I’m spending more quality me time at home with my record collection.  You know, those shiny black discs that existed before CDs? (Psst..CDs are the shiny discs that came before whatever the young’uns use to listen to music nowadays….).  Anyway…There’s nothing better than a personal dance party to shake off the blues!

This old Thing?

Right, I own a ridiculous amount of clothes in SL, but not many of them have poses that are included when I wear them!  The newest group gift from Mug is this fishnet tank top (complete with modesty pasties…well…sorta modest) that has you pulling at your straps the minute you put it on.  So much fun.  The HUD that comes with it allows you to change the colour of the little metal hearts, and also the size of the top.  The Mug group currently costs 250L to join, but you’ll find several other group gifts on the wall there!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Katena
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Over it All

To pair with my new top, I picked up these free overalls (sized for Maitreya) from Addicted Apothecary.  It’s their Stay at Home offering, and is super adorbs.  I may live in them forever.  They even have a little embroidered flower on the back which makes me smile.  Of course, as with all Stay at Home Club gifts, this one is completely free.  Just pay the vendor 1L which will then be promptly returned to you.  There’s also a little halter top in the box for you!

Turn up the vinyl!
