A fresh hair style!

I got a notice that Nyne put out a fresh group gift and I headed to the store to check it out! My new Nissa hair is free with your free to join Nyne group tag and comes with a hud to fully texture change both the color of the hair as well as the bow! Color this hair to your hearts content and get it for free!

Checking out Sexy!

I was checking out the FabFree Group Gift Listing and saw the gift for Sexy Princess and thought it would be perfect to go with my new hair! This sexy mini dress has a floral print and criss cross front and comes in several mesh sizes. As always, the Fabfree group is free to join, so the gift was free to take home!

And while I was there…

While I was at Sexy Princess, I couldn’t help but notice the wall of gifts! I picked up this second sexy number that is a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift. The Fitmesh Fantatics group is free to join, so you can pick up this group free as well. You might remember that Kat blogged this dress in turquoise [here] so if you liked this dress and want to add it to your wardrobe in red, now is your chance!

Dress Sizes Available:

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

One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!

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 🙂

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

A Touch of Lace

One Fine Day_001

Something lacy.

We’re well into March and the days of green and shamrocks, but I was visiting Graffitiwear and the subscriber gift really caught my eye. It is this pretty pink lacy dress that I just really had to have. And all you have to do is click the subscriber and this dress is yours free! I love that it is an applier dress (I do love applier clothing) and I really like the mesh skirt panel that adds a nice dimension to it.

What comes in the box:

  • System Layers for standard avatar bodies
  • Applier for TMP, Omega, Slink, and Wowmeh
  • Rigged mesh skirt panel in standard sizes XXS – L

One Fine Day_002

A little sparkle.

I also stopped by Chop Zuey just to see if there was anything new. There is a pretty “Heart Brillante'” gift out that fit with my new dress just perfectly. I picked up the necklace and ring both as the free group gift (the group is 350L to join but the gifts are always generous and plentiful). I love the sparkle and they resize easily too. There is a set of matching earrings out as well and those are free to all if you want to pick those up.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

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!

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge.

Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and PINKY*GALS Gift!

Hi all!

Today I have items from three stores that are participating in the Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and one super cute FREE dress from PINKY*GALS!

First a little info on how the Hunt works.  It is a bit different from your regular hunt…in the Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt you go to the link I provided and you will find instructions, photos of all the items in the hunt and HINTS on where to look for the eggs.  There are several eggs in each store, containing one item, and the trick is finding the spot, via the hint given, where you might see the egg…BUT you will need to keep a keen eye on that spot because the eggs randomly appear and disappear!  So you may see it one moment and then the next moment it is gone!  It is a great hunt and loads of fun..with fantastic prizes to be found!  Let’s get hunting!

My first outfit is from Sky, it is this adorable pink top, shorts, handbag, bunny headband and flower ring! Such a cute outfit and yours FREE if you find all five eggs before they disappear!  Remember to use the HINTS…they really do help.  The hair is Tomorrow from MAGIKA (not free), the shoes are Plumeria Sandals Rare (gacha item from previous Arcade) from Pure Poison,  and the pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

Next we have an oh-so-cute Kawaii inspired outfit from Hapi Rabi!  This outfit comes with the bunny bag, bunny ears, dress, knee socks and prim nails (not worn) and is FREE…all you need to do is spot those eggs!  The hair is Tomoko2 (Ruby, limited color) a previous lucky board prize from “”D!va”” Hair.  The Ribbon Cupcake Mouthie is 25L for a transferable fat pack of 8 colors…available at [:Kawaii Couture:] and the shoes are part of an outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie, 25L, also available at [:Kawaii Couture:]!   My pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

My final outfit shows only a few of the items available from Perch.  Follow the hints, find the eggs and you will be given this cute birdie bag, lunch box and sneakers (there are also a non mesh top and shorts not shown) absolutely FREE!!  Catch those disappearing eggs!  The mesh dress is a FREE gift (no group join required) from PINKY*GALS.  *Note…the SLURL link for PINKY*GALS takes you to the Love Soul shopping mall…walk out of the mall and the shop will be in the first building to your left. My soda is Dollypop from [:Kawaii Couture:] and my pose is a previous subscriber gift from Diesel Works.  The hair bow is Kyary PonPon Alice Bow – Creamy Yellow…available for FREE from .:Midi:Nette:. on the MarketPlace and my hair is Norma (Ruby limited color) a previous COLLABOR88 item from “”D!va”” Hair.

Take those HINTS and SLURLS  and Grab The Eggs Before They Poof!
