Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Far Far Away

Far Far Away_001

Addicted

It’s safe to say I’m addicted… to the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I visited Stix this time and came away with a beautiful fantasy skin called Yuki Addicted for just 5L. It includes system layers plus…

Appliers for:

  • Omega for Catwa & Body
  • Omega for LAQ/Logo & Body
  • Omega for LeLutka & Body
  • Makeup Only applier

You might remember that Pru showcased the beautiful Yuki as Syx skin here which is the current group gift at Stix. This Yuki Addicted addition of the skin is another fantasy version which is just as beautiful and is in pink shades with pink eyebrows, pink cheeks and pink lipstick. I couldn’t resist it! I think it would be fun for everyday, and it is definitely perfect for roleplay!

Far Far Away

I went fishing… far far away. Okay. So I just went to Sn@tch. There is about a week left to pick up the current fishing prize before it is changed out next Wednesday. Currently is is a lovely little outfit called “Holiday in the Sun”.

You get the full kit and caboodle with jewelry, make up, shoes, tops, omega applier pants and so on. The mesh shirts come in the following colors: Pink (shown), Beige, Blue, Peach, Seafoam, White, and Violet. You’ll also get a texture change hud for the pants and the pants come in: Pink (shown), white, lavender, sky, seafoam, and peach.

Sizes available for the shirt:

  • Standard sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

I’m a big fan of fun graphic t-shirts. I’m also one of those Bigfoot skeptics. I mean how is Bigfoot really real? Everyone is always looking for Bigfoot… but how often do they ask the *real* question? Hmm? Hmm?

A Ride in the Country

Decked out country_001

I’ve been exploring again, and this time my dear friend took me horseback riding at a sim called Glanduin. You arrive and there are several areas on the sim where you can click a horse rezzer so that you can rezz a horse to ride to sight-see around the country side of the sim and its beautiful views!

I tried to put together a bit of a country girl look for the occasion, and with the help of a few lucky finds, I was able to do just that!

Three Tees!

Graffitiwear always puts out quality gifts each month, and August was no exception. They sent out three free fitmesh Tees with Maitreya autohide included as their August 2017 subscriber gift. (If you’re not a current subscriber just go to the store and slap that subsciber to get your gift.) For my picture, I donned the Tribal Tee, but I included a copy of the vendor add at the end of my blog post, so you could also see the Orange Tee and the Floral Tee as well. These fit like a charm and were so pretty!

Four skirts!

One Creations has out a generous free gift exclusively for FabFree group members. It’s a four pack of skirts in different colors. Like the Graffitiwear shirts, these skirts come in one fitmesh size, but I didn’t have any trouble getting them to fit as pretty as a picture. The four colors you get are brown (shown), red, blue, and black.

And shoes!

The Pirate Hunt also started today, so I stopped by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes to see if there happened to be a pair of shoes I could work into my look. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoes for the hunt matched my outfit like a charm! For just 2L and a bit of hunting time, I picked up the Fara Fantasy flats. They come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreaya, and Classic feet, and could match a variety of outfits with their muted blue and brown color scheme.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Blueberries at the Gulf of Lune

Cabin Days_001

A friend has been taking me exploring and I’ve found some beautiful sims lately this way. Just this week Gulf of Lune made my list as one of my top favorites (thank you dear friend for showing it to me). It’s a wetlands recreation complete with elk and ducks and country cabins.

New gift at Blueberry.

When I saw the new free to all gift at Blueberry (hurry and get it before it’s gone!), I knew I had my perfect chance to take some pictures at Gulf of Lune. The lacy top was pretty and sexy, but also sort of has that flexible look that could go casual, racy, urban, or country, and I used the (amazingly generous) texture change hud to choose a pretty country blue and pose on one of the cabins at the Sim.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Bonus!

Not only does the free Blueberry gift include the top in a long version, but it also includes the gift in a short version that you could easily use for a bralette. And with so many options on the color change palette, you’d never run out of lingerie styles! I’ve included a picture below of the “short” version of the gift as well so you can see it. It comes in all the same sizes as the “long” version.

Cabin Days 2_001

I couldn’t resist…

… showing you just how much versatility you will be getting with this free gift. This is a picture of the texture change palette that comes with the new Blueberry gift top. As you can see you will get the texture change colors for the top in both “lace” and “plain” as well as some metallic colors. You’ll also be able to change the colors of the ties on the shirt. The possibilities are almost endless! This is a very generous free gift! Be sure to get this one before it disappears!

RUFFLES!

Ruffles_001

I think Friday is my new lucky day! I hopped onto SL this morning and my inbox was full of notices of all kinds of new group gifts and a 50 Linden Friday special that I knew I had to have! I was so excited to put this look together for you that I could hardly wait to post it!

New pants!

Pure Poison usually puts out shoes as their group gifts, but this time around they set out a free gorgeous pair of black ruffle front shorts! As always, the group is free to join. I fell in love with these at first sight and actually made the rest of my outfit around this signature piece! When you open your gift package, you’ll find that the Haley shorts come in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Some browsing…

I did some browsing for the perfect shirt to go with my new shorts, and was in luck when I came across this beautiful Summer Color ruffled top by Toxic Bish. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. I am showing it off in black in the picture above, but it comes with a texture hud that includes 11 colors and sizes to fit all the popular mesh body types.

Colors you get with this top:

  • White
  • Mauve
  • Brown
  • Hot Pink
  • Salmon
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Mint
  • Black (shown)

50 Linden Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay! The start of the weekend and special shopping deals! I stopped by Exile and picked up this beautiful hairstyle called “Run the World” in a pack of naturals (they also have out a separate pack of pastels for 50L too). It’s really pretty and I love the bangs! It’s a great and versatile hairstyle, perfect for many occasions.

Strike a pose!

I noticed oOo Studio Poses on my 50 Linden Friday list and decided to stop by there for a look. While I didn’t end up using the 50L pose for my picture today, I discovered that there were two free to all gifts sitting on the counter. You can buy the “My Life” pose used in this picture for just 0L, no group needed. It’s great for those of you into Second Life photography. The second pose out on the counter was a reclining pose, and was just as nice!

Atom Bomb Baby

Atomic_001

I almost missed out on telling all you Fabulous readers about the Sn@tch 10th Anniversary Sale & Specials! It ends July 19th, so you still have a couple of days, and you don’t want to miss out! In addition to lots of extra ways to win free clothes, almost everything in the store (this does not include new releases, marketplace, or gift cards) is 50 – 75% off!

A Lucky, Unlucky Dip!

Extra prize winning machines have been set out at Sn@tch for this special week, including an Unlucky Dip… except that it’s lucky! It gives out a prize every single time!

I took a dive and came up with a free Sn@tch Skybox of Evil! This skybox is a Gothic skybox and is full-size and simply amazing. It even included decorating accessories such as a bed, candelabras, rugs, and a plant. The skybox itself was 81 prim, but for such a roomy and well textured skybox, that’s not bad! I took my picture in front of the window of the skybox… which was my favorite part!

New Lucky Letters!

Our wonderful Sn@tch creator has set out new Lucky Letter Board prizes and you can win lots of great prizes for free if your letter comes up! I won the Atom Bomb Baby Tank top for free when my letter came up! It comes in all the standard sizes, but I love that it is a fatpack of colors! You’ll have colors to match all your moods for free!

Matching pants!

Have you forgotten Sn@tch‘s new Freebie and Cheapie area? I had! I took a peak over there and snatched up these free Raji Floral leggings. These are mesh and come in all the standard sizes and for 0L I was able to get them in a fat-pack of colors. They matched my new free tank top too! I’m all set!

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

A Quiet Spot

Quiet Time

Sometimes a little rest and relaxation with a good book and some coffee in a quiet spot is just what is needed to recharge our batteries. Luckily I’m dressed for the occasion.

Full Outfit… 10L price

The Loordes of London Cart at the Cart Wash Sale has a wonderful deal for bargain hunters if you love quality casual wear. Their English Garden Sets are available in 5 colors and for just 10L you get both the top and the matching shorts.

The top has a nice knit look with a cotton edge texture, and the shorts have a quality denim texture. You’ll get standard mesh sizes XXS – L with a quality alpha layer to go with it, if you are still rocking your system body.

See you at The Wash!

Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!
