Magical Moments

Magical Moments

Ah, I love a good magical interlude!  Time to conjure some prettiness, and blast those midwinter blues away.  What better than a gorgeous red dress to do that?

Pre-Valentines

Telsiope’s Couture have a gorgeous new dress on Marketplace for just 1L.  It’s slinky, it’s fabulous… it kind of put me in the mood to head into the woods barefoot and dance in the moonlight.  So, that’s what I did!  Of course, you can always style this dress in other ways, which is what half the fun is, I’d say.  Grab it on MP today!

Sizes

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Ah, a bit of romance and mystery goes a long way…

MakeOver Monday part 3

Hey Guys and Gals, it’s Monday so that means our next installment of “MakeOver Monday” is on the air. Or on the web… or whatever.  First I want to say a big THANKS to Karl Jacob who gave me the tip that Altamura had a new free avatar gift at the  eBento Event! I popped over and grabbed the male gift “TakeMYWay”. And I may have done a little happy dance when I saw it was BoM ready! Then I got it set up and I was SO much happier with this avatar. Right out of the box he is miles ahead of poor “Robert”. The shape is nicer and the face is so much less “I’m gonna cut you” angry. He also comes with his own skin and since he’s BoM ready I won’t have any trouble finding more skins and tattoos, etc. for him.  

But for every step forward…  Unfortunately, “TakeMYWay” does not come with a body HUD of any sort. So we are stuck using alpha layers for clothes. Which (in my opinion) is extremely inconvenient. So many mesh clothes don’t even come with alpha layers anymore. So there is that. It’s almost a deal breaker for me. Your mileage may vary. 

 

So, moving on. As you recall we were going to talk about hair today. Again, this was soooo much easier for Kerydwyn. But I found three styles for each of them but there are more out there.  Let’s look at the Ladies first. I also changed, Kerydwyn’s skin to show some of the basic BoM skins you already have in your inventory. Just look under the ‘Clothing’ folder. You’ll also find some hair there too. Some of it, is rather nice, especially the newer mesh avatar’s hair. 

Fist is Firelight. The group is free to join and they offer many gifts and several lucky chairs. The best thing is they offer a gift card for 250L to new avatars ( 30 days old or less ) and unlike some gift cards this one is enough to buy a regular hair completely. This is the “Monica” one of the past group gifts available. I’m showing the “Anna” skin from the Inventory too.

Next is “Leela” Hair from Analog Dog. When you hit the landing point, just walk to your left all the way to the ‘coast’ where you’ll see a big glowing ball. Click it and get a selection of free hair. I’m showing the “Kimberly” skin here once again, in your inventory.

Last we have “Tsarina” from A&A. This is the free group gift for the Fabulously Free Group. Of course, FabFree is free to join.

For Alistar, the selection was a bit more challenging. Free hair for the guys is few and far between but it is out there. Having said this, I think this is where I would get off the free ride and lay out some Lindens. The group for N0_Match is 50L and with that you get monthly gifts for BOTH men and women ( Usually a Unisex style) and you get access to literally dozens of past gifts with many many male styles. 50L is literally 0.21 cents USD… I can find that in the couch cushions… ( A note here… yes, it’s 21cents but the minimum amount you can buy is $2.50… so I’d have to check under my car seats too.)   If you’re set on free, do check out the mesh hair in your inventory. The ‘Brandon’, ‘Johnny’ and ‘Wyatt’ hairs aren’t bad.

So first here is “Mike” from Sintiklia. The Group is free to join and there are loads of Group Gifts to pick up. And don’t forget to check the ladies hair as well. Lots of styles are aimed at women but are more unisex.

Modulus’s “Cole”. You can get it on the MarketPlace or in-store and you get the entire Fatpack of colors. This is an extremely well made hair. And the fact that’s free is just icing on the cake.

Lastly is one of those hairs sold as a ladies style but I think it works as unisex. I found “yume” from ASO on the MarketPlace and there doesn’t appear to be an in-world store.  Again, this was the result of a “Free Hair” search on the MarketPlace.

 

Okay, that’s going to do it for today. I thought I’d get to Inventory control today but I’m thinking that actually needs it’s own post. SO until next week, my dears!

And remember, comments, ideas, opinions etc. are ALWAYS welcome! So let me know what you’re thinking!

Conjuring

conjuring_001

Hey Gang!

Just recently I was casting a spell (as I always do), and this photo was taken just before things went horribly wrong…  I mean, I was pretty oblivious (as usual!), and had no idea how powerful my conjuring spell really was!  Huh!  I guess I pack a wallop!

Enamored

I’ve discovered a wonderful “new to me” shop thanks to our own Ms. Julianna!  Honestly, I am enamored with most everything in the shop and to my delight discovered they have a discounted area with gorgeousness I can share with y’all on the blog.

This shop is called Oubliette and this adorbs dress I am wearing is from that area.  It was only 50L and I am so in love with it. (Y’all know I love pink but did you know I love anything celestial too?  IE Moons, stars, suns)  I felt so magical in it that I whipped out my spell book and well, started casting spells!  This dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Not sure what the …. person?  Behind me is wearing.  0.o

More soon!

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as some blooms in the middle of winter.  When you think about how outside (at least in my part of the world) is cold and barren, with many months to go until things start to poke their heads out of the earth, it is comforting to think that you can grow some pretties indoors.  And if you don’t have a green thumb, virtual blooms will do just fine!

Cozyfest Continues

Yesterday, I told you about the 50L items you can pick up at Cozyfest, but today I’m showing off some of the free gifts that are just as delightful.  To get these gifts, just join the Fifty Linden Fridays group for free, and click on the box located at each stall. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE dress by CandyDoll sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya & V-Tech
  • FREE lollipop by Lyrium
  • FREE flowers and table by Kraftwork

It’s all just so lovely!  What a fab event.  It’s still quite busy, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair –  you have until February 4th.

Keep on blooming, FabFree!

Unicorns, Snowflakes & Multi-coloured Trees

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m hanging out at the gorgeous Mystic Dreamers Mall, the home of Shanti & New Monday. Look at the gorgeous unicorn statue and the colourful tree! The decorating is so pretty. This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!

Aline in Paris

Aline in Paris

There are days where I feel oddly like a character in a TV show that wears one of those wonderful outfits that are completely impractical in RL.  For instance, have you been watching Emily in Paris?  I’ll forgive you if you haven’t – it’s one of those delightfully ridiculous romps filled with strange stereotypes…but if you can get past that and just enjoy it for the frivolity, then you can have a bit of fun.  Anyway, her outfits give me a bit of a pang of jealousy, but then I remember that my SL closet is just a bit more extensive than hers…

A Piece of The Pie

There are new lucky boards at Pink Cream Pie!  These boards never fail to delight me since they move so quickly, AND there are separate boards for letters and numbers, which is such a breath of fresh air.  There are five new pieces, including the lovely dress I’ve got on, each in several different colours in shiny, satin-like textures.  To take part, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L, and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are lots of gifts in this group, plus you get 100L of store credit every month.  Super worth it!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Hats Off to You

Fifty Linden Friday is in full swing, and I’m totally excited about this lovely hairstyle courtesy of Wasabi.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, plus several different colours for the beret.  Of course, FLF items usually disappear around midnight (sometimes you’ll find them a few days later, but it’s not guaranteed), so head on over ASAP to pick up this beauty for 50L.

Have a great weekend Fabbies!

Asher

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Marketplace Hunter

Coming Soon
I’ve been doing a lot of Marketplace freebie hunting lately… mostly because I’m just too tired to come online lately and go shopping. Sad, I know. But one of the perks of this recent trend is that I’ve found so many cool sales as well as some freebies on the MP!

Glow!

Glow has a load of free poses on the Marketplace. There’s a tonne, as everything on their MP store is completely free! These are great gifts for bloggers and photo lovers alike! I’m not sure how long these will be available, so scoop them up now.

Can you spare 10 Lindens?

Going back to those sales I mentioned, I have two items I found today for sale on the Marketplace for only 10L each:

  • This amazing ice crown is currently on sale for 10 L at Pure Poison, available only on the Marketplace. This item is amazing with how detailed it is! It comes with a colour hud to change the flowers and other parts of the crown.
  • My lovely lipstick is from another 10L sale item, which is a fatpack of lipsticks by Synnergy. You can purchase it on the MP here. It’s a lovely set! This lipstick applier works with Lelutka Evolution & EvoX heads only.

Winter Feels

Finally, my striking eyeshadow is the latest group gift at Pout! This comes from an eyeshadow set in different colours with unique patterns on them. You can grab this freebie at the Pout! mainstore when you join their free group gift. These shadows come in an HD makeup applier that only works on Lelutka EvoX heads.

See you soon, FabFree!

Time to Celebrate

Time to Celebrate

I’m suddenly in the mood to celebrate!  Could it be all this awesome free decor I got?  Or perhaps it’s the mythical call of the cake….hmmm….

With Panache!

Right so this might be something you have to do in fast forward if you would like the pretty cake from Dahlia I am about to eat…. Anyway, let me get you the info.  If you join the free Panache Events group, then look in group notices, you’ll find this lovely cake from Dahlia, as well as the amazing streamers, balloons and posing frame from Elm.  The HUD to change the colour of the streamers and the words at the bottom of the posing frame are INSANELY amazing.  So many choices.  Gifts are slated to drop every two weeks in this group, and the Dahlia cake is sure to disappear very soon.  Join the group ASAP and get your mitts on these amazing free gifts!

Copy and paste this key into chat to join the group: secondlife:///app/group/36a7347f-5761-879c-dffc-ae4905fd09ec/about

Let’s party!

No Shivers Required

No Shivers Required

A metaphorical shiver runs down my spine as as I write this post, my dear readers!  Don’t worry, before you all think I’m about to expire from exposure, You’ll all be happy to know that there is indeed a firepit at my feet keeping me toasty.  Plus I have a massive sweater…and I’m Canadian.  So all in all, I am safe from frostbite!

Hearty

The season of all things pink and covered with hearts is creeping towards us (and I am SUPER excited about it).  Over at Reed, they’re totally ready for some V-Day action with their latest group gift:  The top and shorts combination I’ve got on.  They can be worn separately so if you’re not in the mood for hearts quite yet, you’ve got a sweet pair of shorts to go with pretty much anything.  The Reed group is free to join and there are lots of really nice gifts to pad your inventory with.
