Country Girl

Country Girl

I really wish I lived in the country right about now. I would love to get away and just graze the fields and nature during this time when it’s difficult to walk outside in the city where I live. I may not be able to escape the urban jungle in real life, but I can act out my country fantasies here on SL.

Tone 2 News!

Tone 2 is temporarily free to join, and with their gifts you can achieve that perfect country girl look. I am featuring 5 current gifts from the store, including the dress, the eye appliers, BOM beauty marks (moles), and the blue tone of the nail pedicure collection.  You can get the free beauty marks inside their main store and to get the other gifts you need to go to the blue barn (the eyes and nails store) which is to the left of the entrance of Tone 2 . Simply join the group for free and activate it to claim these great gifts. Tone 2 regularly gifts its group members with gifts, so keep an eye out for this store. This group is regularly 500 L to join.

Sizes Included:
Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Physique & Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy & Fine)
Appliers included: Omega & BOM

Wow!

Wow Skins has some awesome freebies out at the moment. The skin I am wearing is the current Fab Free group gift. It comes with omega appliers fitted for Genus head, and classic skins. I used the classic skin as a BOM skin, and you can also grab a free BOM feet and hand fix for all Wow Skins at the front of the store under the “Body Appliers” section of the store.
Appliers included: Omega & BOM/ Classic Skins

Wales

These amazing heels, called Wales, are the latest group gift from Essenz. These heels are highly customizable and allow four shoe styles, with different options to change the sizes of the wedges and heels, and many colour choices are included as well.  I imagine you could find a way to wear these heels with “virtually” any outfit in your inventory. The Essenz group costs 350 L to join, but it is worth the fee alone for these versatile shoes.

Thank you for reading!

Time To Get Glam

Time to Get Glam
Hi Fab Free! I think it’s time to get all glammed up and dressed up. After you have collected these beautiful freebies, we will all be ready for a night out at a Jazz club (which are some of my favourite places to hang out on SL).

The Skinnery is free right now!

The The Skinnery ‘s group is temporarily free to join until the end of April. I am showing off the Dezziree eyeshadow, which is one of their current free gifts. You can also grab some other gifts like makeup and freckles and blushes made for mesh heads and BOM. I am currently wearing the blush from the freckles and blushes pack. These makeup and skin addon gifts are fatpacks and come with a range of options in the hud.

Appliers Included: Genus & BOM

This Gorgeous Gown

This gown is by Sascha’s Designs, a designer I love. They have graciously set out a free Stay at Home Club gift for us all which is this beautiful red gown! The gown comes with Omega Appliers, BOM appliers/ classic appliers and a skirt. The gown can be worn on all mesh bodies with these appliers and is also compatible with classic avatars.

Amara Beauty

Amara Beauty currently has 3 skin fatpacks out for Genus, Lelutka Evolution and Catwa. These are a “together at home” free gift, so they will not be out for much longer. I am wearing the Brielle skin for Genus, and it is beautiful. It is a full fatpack and comes in a range of tones. Go now and get these amazing freebies!

Have fun getting glammed up!

A Free, Full Bento Mesh Head from Genus Project!

Free Genus Strong Head

Hey Fab Free! I have the most exciting news to share with all of you! Genus Project is giving away a completely free Genus head! The head is a full bento, BOM head which is also compatible with Genus appliers and Omega appliers. I will be showing you how to get the head, some basics on how to get started and some free skins, makeup and eyes you can pair with the head successfully. For those of you who need a mesh head for the first time or wanted a Genus head, now is the time to jump at the opportunity!

How to get the Head

When I opened my SL notices this morning I was truly stunned and amazed that Genus Project has released a new free head as a gift. I ran to my computer and grabbed the head as soon as I could! It was super exciting and it made me happy. The head is a strand of Genus’ Strong Head type, so it is more mature looking.

Here are some easy steps on how to grab the head:

  1.  Join the Genus Project Free Group. Copy and paste this join group URI into your SL chat or nearby chat: secondlife:///app/group/b153906f-38dd-0dd6-d327-345bef9f446e/about
  2. Open up the Notices in the Group info tab
  3.  Scroll down to the notice called “Support from the Genus Project Team” and accept the attached object. The object is called “GENUS Project – Genus Head – Strong Face GIFT001 – Mocap”

You can also grab the head at the mainstore, although it will be packed and hard to get in. You can grab a free BOM activator HUD and some free skins at the store as well.

Skin Hunt at Insol

There is a Stay at Home/ Quarantine themed hunt going on at Insol right now, and they have some 1L Genus head appliers as some of the hunt prizes. I am wearing the Mila skin in the Milk skintone, one of the hunt prizes, and I also grabbed the free Insol body appliers while I was there. These hunt gifts will allow you to use appliers so you won’t even need to try BOM yet if you aren’t ready to. Each skin on the hunt is 1 L only, and the body appliers are free. The body appliers aren’t hunt items; just click the free body appliers near the entrance of the store.

Need some makeup for your new head?

I also added some Genus makeup onto the Strong head. I selected some basic ones that are good to start out with on the Marketplace. This everyday lip balm pack from Ottilie is currently on promotion for 1L, which includes genus appliers, BOM and other head appliers. I also found an  eyeshadow from Pout! which is available as a gift in their marketplace store called Vibez Eyshadow which is 1 L only as well.  These shadows come in some basic colours to start you out. To top it off, I purchased a pair of eyes from Myria for 1 L which contain Genus applier eyes in blue, green and brown.

Now we’re all set! I used my own custom shape, but there are also shapes for the head available for free at Jinx/Kumio’s mainstore and on the marketplace.

Have fun playing with your new free Genus head, Fab Free!

She’s got the look!

Rawr_001

“Heavenly bound
Cause heaven’s got a number
When she’s spinning me around
Kissing is a color
Her loving is a wild dog
She’s got the look”

Get the look too!

You can get the look for free! I have some special gifts to list off to you starting with some sweet deals at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Right now the group join fee is free (I’m not sure how much longer this promotion will last, so hurry!). For the month of January, your group gift is 400L in-store credit! Just go to the credit terminal with your group tag on and click it to get your credit to go towards any purchase!

Don’t forget that 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a nice assortment of lucky letter boards, mini mania boards, and midnight mania boards accessible to group members. While I was there picking up my free 400L store credit, my letter came up on one of the lucky boards, and I got the Vyra skin for free! It includes the face and body Omega appliers in a full fatpack of skintones! I was thrilled with this free beautiful skin pictured above.

More free stuff…

Byrne has out their free goodies for January as well and RAWR are they gorgeous! I picked up the Jungle Queen dress in the group notices (or you can pick it up at the main-store) and the subscriber sent me the matching gloves. The dress and gloves both come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza to fit your mesh body needs.

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

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

With the Cool Dogs

With the Cool Dogs

The Cart Sale is proving a virtual closet filler for us menfolk. I’ve picked up some great finds as I’ve previously shown you [HERE] and [HERE]. I stopped by today to check out the Ruckus Cart and again was thrilled at the offerings.

In the end, I decided on the black hoodie with striped t-shirt. This includes a hud that allows you to change the color of the striped t-shirt part, giving you six color options total including the blue I’m sporting above. The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is only 10L.

With the Cool Dogs 2

Did you notice the new skin I am sporting? This is the September gift skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and it is a nice one. It’s not often you come across a really great skin for men geared toward those with blonde or light colored hair and I was thrilled when I saw the large array of included appliers in this gift.

The group will cost you 150L to join if you are not already a member, but this one skin gift alone will more than pay for the fee. You’ll get 4 system skins (with beard and no beard options), appliers for: slink hands and feet, omega body applier, omega face applier, tmp face applier, and two shapes which are also included as a bonus. I opted to keep my own shape, but found that the included shapes were rather nice, and they are modifiable.

Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

Mistress of Jewells 2

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!
