Free Lunch

Free Lunch

I got up this morning and found that Fergus – that naughty horse – had vanished! I searched all of his favorite landmarks, and finally found him not only making himself at home at Sol Farm but also helping himself to a free lunch.

And in true Fergus form, it looks like he’s making some new friends along the way, lol! 🙂

New Gift From The Painted Pony

The Painted Pony is one of our favorite stores for appliers and accessories for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. Earlier this week, they sent out a gift to group members: the Island Pony “Summer Bay” Coat Applier. Fergus (above, left) managed to slip his on before he slipped out of his stable this morning.

To grab your gift, join The Painted Pony’s in-world group and download the attachment from the notices.

NOTE: Gifts for The Painted Pony group members are only sent out in notices, and will only be available for 14 days until the message falls out of notices. Group gifts are NOT available in the store, so please don’t go looking there!

(That said… there are a couple of completely free, non-group gifts available in the store, including a box of demo textures and the Crispin coat applier that we shared in THIS POST RIGHT HERE.)

Not sure how to use a coat importer? Just wear your Water Horse and it’s texture HUD, and then rez the coat importer on the ground. Click the coat importer and it will automagically install the new coat in your HUD. You can find it by opening the texture HUD, selecting the desired body part (in this case, the body), and clicking the “Imported” button. Your new texture will appear in the slider; click to select. And… voila! 😀

As a side note, be sure to check out the Water Horse Creator’s Faire going on through the end of August at the Water Horse Mall. It’s a great opportunity to see what various vendors have for sale for your horse, and a few of the vendors even have gifts and gachas available. In fact, if you like the Summer Bay coat, you can pick up additional versions of the Island Pony Coat Applier from The Painted Pony’s gacha machine at the Faire for 100L a pull.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Limelight

Limelight

Greetings, fabulouses!

I’m just heading out for a night on the town, but I wanted to stop by the blog to show you this pretty new gift from Eloise Baker for members of the Fab Free in-world group.

The Rose & Lace Dress is delicate and feminine, and it comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The dress has a definite vintage flair, but you can also give it a more modern twist, as I’ve done.

Oh, and it comes in several other colors, but the lovely lime version I’m wearing here is FREE. 🙂

Be sure to check out the Fab Free Group Gift Listing page for more amazing gifts from our fabulously generous designers!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Can’t Get My Ducks in a Row

Getting My Ducks in a Row

“Go for a bike ride,” she said. “The fresh air will be good for you,” she said.

She forgot to mention the ducks. They won’t quit following me, and I think one of them is pretty sure I’m its dad. :-/

But enough about my problems. On to the free stuff!

More Gifts for Men

L’Homme Magazine SL is celebrating its 4th anniversary this month, and 20 of SL’s top designers have set out gifts for members of the L’Homme Magazine Readers Group.

Meandering Through the Flowers

Meandering Through the Flowers

I just can’t seem to pass up stopping by a flower shop, and today I feel as if I fit right in! So let me get right to it and tell you about the pretty floral dress I’m wearing. 🙂

Poppin’ & Posin’

New-to-me store Meander recently set out this festive, flowery dress as a group gift. Salsa Pop comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh S-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Voluptuous

But wait… there’s more!

I was so pleasantly surprised when I logged in this morning and found a set of 3 Real World Poses had been sent out to Meander group members! I didn’t see the poses in the store, but you can find them in the group notices.

50L Boho

Just a quick note about my necklace: You can pick up the Barcelona Boho necklace and earrings (not shown) at Maxi Gossamer today for Fifty Linden Friday. A texture-changer with 9 bead colors and 2 metal colors is included.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

The Waiting…

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

…is the hardest part, of course.

But YOU don’t have to wait to grab these great gifts from JUMO!

Being Transparent

JUMO Fashion is celebrating its birthday this week by opening up their in-world group for FREE! The join fee is regularly 350L, so this is kind of a big deal. 😀

They’ve also set out some really lovely gifts, two of which I’m wearing here.

Starting at the top… the Nanette Jewelry BDay includes the gorgeous statement necklace and earrings. Click any piece to bring up a resizer menu if you need it.

I’m also wearing the Gigi Outfit BDay Version, which includes the top, pants, and shoes (actually, the shoes are part of the pants). Sizes include:

Shirt:

  • Standard Mesh XXS-L (no alpha is included)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Pants:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There are two things you need to know about this outfit:

  1. It’s SEE-THROUGH. And by that, I mean not only the back and a peek-a-boo front panel of the shirt, but also the pants! That’s right, the pants are completely transparent. You may want to add a pair of sexy panties if you plan to go out in public… or not, if you plan to stay at home with your honey. 😉
  2. It’s SHINY, especially the shirt. You won’t notice unless you turn on your windlight, but I’m just letting you know, in case you plan to take some photos.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Galvanized

Galvanized

Happy Hump Day, fabulous readers!

I decided to shoot some hoops this afternoon and managed to find some great group gifts to wear on the court!

A True Fit

First up is my shorts and t-shirt from Galvanized. The Tru-FIT Shorts and T-Shirt come in sizes for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • TMP

I’ll give you a little tip, though. I found that the Belleza t-shirt didn’t really fit my Jake body correctly, and I couldn’t alpha out a spot in the front. So, rather than have to Photoshop the spots out of the picture, I’m actually wearing the Signature shirt. It’s a little bit around the collar, but nothing major. Also, the TMP shirt isn’t black, but olive green! This may have been fixed since I picked up the gift, but it was kind of cool to find a different color in the box.

Super Socks

A great pair of trainers needs a super pair of socks, so I was lucky to find these awesome Thermal Socks as a free gift at VALE KOER. Sizes include:

For men:

  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink

For women:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There’s a HUD with 65 different colors and patterns included, and you can alpha out sections of the socks.

Have a great day!
