Lemonade Stand

Lemonade

It’s not the milkshake that brings the girls to the yard…

…It’s the lemonade. I am really needing warmer weather to finally settle in. I’m starting to get a case of cabin fever and thinking about all the Spring and Summer activities I enjoy. Stopping by a mobile drink stand and picking out my favo(u)rite cold summer drink has been right up there on the list. Today’s FREE gift is a group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. The Leather Jacket is tight fitting and does not come with a shirt layer. So I borrowed the Military PT Uniform Olive Drab Shirt from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift I found at Emmalena Damour Designs that I previously showed [HERE]. This shirt is worn with an Omega Applier for my body and works great with the jacket. Another Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift that comes in sizes than the Aesthetics form is the Derek Jeans part of the $1L hunt gift from Sin Original that was originally shown [HERE]. Here’s to warm, sunny days ahead for everyone!

Besome kind of Hipster

Sunglasses
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll tell you how I’ve spent my Sunday, shopping! The Hipster Fair is happening and it ends March 3rd. Most of the designers have set out an inexpensive gift for the event. While you shop, look for the pink and green mustaches at each booth. The pink gifts are women’s only, and the green gifts are male or unisex gifts. Each designer set the cost of their gift, in my experience most gifts were just 1 linden, while some were FREE, and others were as much as 5 lindens. I probably picked up at least 20 gifts! There were so many good items that I’ll be doing a second post with several more Hipster Fair freebies and cheapies. That said I also want to let you know about a special sales event at Besom.

Now, the most urgent aspect of the sale at Besom is that today is the last day! I wish I had caught wind of the sale sooner. Through the end of the day today (I assume, the sale is a “weekend” sale) all individual hair packs at Besom are marked 50 lindens. The purpose of the sale is to help raise funds for the medical bills of an adorable cat named Spirit. I’m not often one to promote causes, because I’m partly a cynical skeptic, but if ever there was a reason to feed my love of hair, the life of a kitty is just the one. Either way, you can’t beat 50 lindens for the quality hairstyles at Besom. The fact that the purchase will likely be helping a beloved pet is just the icing on the cake!

Normally I would go into a little bit of detail about each of the items in the post, however since there are several items in this post and a time sensitivity, I’ll just give you the basics.  Thanks in advance for understanding.  ❤

Hair – *Besom~Weekend Warrior *Essentials* – 50L – Last Day! (Sunday 2/26) 

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Applier) – champagne

Sunglasses – B&W Design – DIVINA Sunglasses WOOD – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Tattoo – {TOUCH MIA} Moth Tattoos *Classic Layers/Omega/Slink – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Top – EnvyMe – ::EM:: Mesh Owl Knotted  *Standard Mesh Sizes – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Pants – Blueberry – Pizza

Bag – YoKana – YK – Hipster Bag – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Shoes – Delirium Style – Sneaker *For Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP w/Color Hud  – FREE Gift @The Hipster Fair

Feeling Mouthy!

Mouthy_001

Sometimes you feel… mouthy.

Today I feel a bit mouthy. You know, sometimes you just have to get it ALL out there in the open and tell it like it is. There’s no stopping you and then… of course later you know you’re going to pay for it… but luckily I found this great top that can just be mouthy for me!

Stopping by Ashmoot!

So I stopped by Ashmoot where I was able to pick up two great gifts and it didn’t cost me a single Linden!

First I picked up this terrific sweater (the one that made me feel so mouthy 😉 ). It’s Ashmoot‘s FREE FabFree Group Gift offering. Just wear your FabFree Group tag and pick this gorgeous mesh sweater up. It comes in all the standard sizes and includes an alpha layer as well.

I also picked up the matching shorts! These are applier shorts and you can get them by wearing the Ashmoot group tag. The Ashmoot group is also FREE to join, making this gift FREE as well. You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega as well as a couple of system layers as well!

Just be careful not to let your mouth run away with you while wearing this great outfit 😉

Flamingos and Squids

Flamingos and Squids

In preparation

It’s been a pretty long week for me IRL and with all signs, unfortunately, pointing to things getting more chaotic in the coming days, I turned to my Second Life and popped into the Baja Norte sim for some a much-needed breather. There’s still something calming about seagulls swooping about amidst the cresting waves, even though it’s just only in a virtual world. I had something skimpier in mind for this outing (hmm…come to think of it I’ve never actually worn a swimsuit to any of the beach sims I’ve visited), but a stop to Creator’s Collection Box changed my mind. Unlike Carson, who came away with one killer look, I quickly picked up the gift at the S@bbia booth. From its quirky print (flamingos are just adorable birds don’t you think?) to its pretty bowed sash, the (aptly named) Flamingo dress is simply darling.

The gift comes in only one mesh size, however, and without an alpha layer included. While arguably it’ll be easier for those with mesh bodies to find a fit thanks to their nifty alpha huds, I experimented with some of the alpha layers of other dresses that I already owned and found a good fit. Personally, I feel that the Flamingo dress was worth the effort especially when you take into consideration that it does come with a hud that lets you switch the dress between three colors (blue, red and white) technically making it three free dresses. Be sure to do a little more exploring if you visit this 2nd Anniversary round of Creator’s Collection Box as the majority of booths have great free gifts out.

A good pair of clogs

Seeing as I wanted to be able to dip my toes in the water or wriggle them in the warm sand, fussy boots or heels just wouldn’t do for this latest adventure. The sneakers had to stay at home too because who wants to spend their time cleaning sand out from the soles of their damp sneakers (yuck!). Luckily enough I came across a free fatpack of clogs from A&D Clothing and my footwear problems were quickly solved. These cute clogs are a sub-o gift at the store meaning that you won’t need to join any groups or free up those precious group slots to get your hands on them. Better yet this gift is unisex (that ‘special’ dude won’t have any excuses not to join you at the beach now) and can be worn with classic avatar feet (alpha layer and shoe base included). Did I mention that this gift is a fatpack? Well, you’ll also be getting a hud which lets you choose among twelve different colors with a section that’s dedicated to resizing tools as well. I’m still pretty tickled that I found this design in SL seeing as I’ve a couple of pairs of these out of the virtual world and see them all over the place besides. When do we get to choose the charms hmm?

Flamingos and Squids

So squids were mentioned

And here they are in the form of a cute pair of earrings from Frangipani Garden that’s also available as a free gift at Creator’s Collection Box. While I’m fully aware that you’re supposed to eat seafood and not wear it, these Takosan earrings were just too cute to pass up. The detailing on these earrings are amazing as is the subtle difference in the expressions between Mr. and Ms. Squid (well, I assume they’re Mr and Ms). While a resizer script is absent, permissions on these earrings are set to modify and copy so you can make as many backups as you like before making those changes if need be. Creator’s Collection Box runs until the 18th of next month so hurry down.

A sweet face

There’s a new group gift out at WoW Skins! I always look forward to the frequent gifts from this store and was pretty excited to unbox Preziosa. She has a slightly more mature look to her, I feel but still, has that sweet look and glossiness that are hallmarks of the WoW Skins. The neutral tones of the makeup on Preziosa are simply perfect. The gift package includes:

  • Two system skins in the Tan tone (one with cleavage and one without)
  • Omega applier hud for Head and Body

Other skin tones are available for purchase at the WoW Skins main store at a discounted price of 199L and it is 450L to join the group if you’re not already a member. Of course joining the group will mean access to the group only Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards that are always stuffed with goodies.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got a sudden craving for takoyaki and hmm…where do I get some? Till later.

EDIT: Thanks to Ariel Starflare, I’ve been informed that there is now an alpha layer for the dress. Us classic avatars can rejoice!

Sunday Morning Paper

Zed

Kickstart my heart…

I totally planned a blog-free weekend to recharge the creative juices and to put a little balance back into my RL (the dog was starting to get annoyed). As I was doing all the domestic chores that I’ve neglected, my mind was coming up with ideas for new posts… no, no, no… shut your brain off… As I was playing ” Identify what food this USED to be” while cleaning out the refrigerator, I had another post idea (to be fair, it was for the MadPea Food Fair), but I’m on a short holiday, right? RIGHT?

Ahem….

Today I’d like to show you this great FREE find that can be found on the Loving Kind Hunt 2 from Zed Designz. The Milan Blue Leather Jacket w/ TurtleNeck is a beautiful mesh jacket that comes with a texture changing HUD for the turtleneck to give you several color choices to pick from. It also comes in sizes S-L and fitted small and large sizes.

And now I return to my Sunday crossword and my cup of coffee… Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Carson is wearing…

Hey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  As you can see I have found myself a cozy little nook to rest in on the Follow Your Bliss sim, and it couldn’t be more needed!  I didn’t even bring a dog with me this time, because we all know how my dogs behave and I just needed some peace…  It’s been a long, busy and challenging week!  I left all 23 of my furr babies with him and his new cat.  I am sure they are having a lovely and relaxing time  adjusting to eachother.  *crickets*

Blogging, for me… is a way to relax and unwind, so I have put on an outfit that I picked up for just 1L courtesy of MOoH!  for the Stupid Cupid Hunt. and set out to find a nice place for a photo.

The Outfit Details

If you like the Tabitha Outfit by MOoH!  that I am wearing today that includes the breezy Rope Cowl Neck Top and metallic leather Cut Out Pants, all you need to do is hunt down that little red arrow icon at the MOoH! store and pick it up for 1L.  Don’t delay though – this hunt only runs until the end of the month!

Kiss Me, Baby

Kiss Me, Baby

Pucker Up

If you are a wearer of LeLutka mesh heads, you will want to hustle over to Laura Hurley to pick up this gorgeous applier. Kay comes in the milky tone and with glittery, pink eyeshadow, high-gloss lipstick, and a light sprinkling of freckles and beauty marks. She is a really pretty face, and I love the intense lips. ❤ ❤

I am wearing Kay on my Simone 2.6 Bento head, and I did not have to mod my shape much at all to achieve a look that I liked. I did notice a teensy, shadowy line above the upper lip, which did not appear until I turned on atmospheric shaders to take this photo. It was less noticeable on my non-Bento Karin head, so perhaps my shape was the culprit. :/

The Lara Hurley group is free to join – with many lovely gifts offered throughout the year – so be sure to stop by and give Kay a try.

XOXO

My lingerie – what you can see of it – is part of the very generous Valentine’s Day group gift from Foxes. I am wearing the crop top and bottoms, but there is also an uber-sexy bra and panty set included. Both sets come in three different fabrics and are sized for Maitreya mesh bodies. A HUD is included so you can change the color of the bows and lace.

My necklace is from Amala for Fifty Linden Friday, and as of this writing, it is still available for 50L. The Scarlett Necklace comes with diamonds and a HUD with 4 metal colors included. The Deluxe HUD is also available for 50L and includes 10 additional pearl colors. NOTE: the Deluxe HUD does NOT include the necklace, so be sure you pick that one up first!
