Feeling a little monochromatic.

Hello again everybody. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I know I am! To make this weekend even better, I’ve got a few Marketplace finds for you, 2 great group gifts, and a lovely, wearable demo. Wow, I better get started!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Let’s start with the Marketplace. My sexy dress is called Lanelle, and it is a dollarbie from Tee*fy. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh version for the Maitreya Lara body. My other Marketplace find are my sweet heels. The Nix High Heels also only L$1, were put out as a special for Halloween, from Vowtte, and are still available. They are meant for SLink and Bellezza high feet, and you actually get 2 pairs, the black ones that I am showing off, and a purple pair as well. The texturing on them is amazing, and they are well worth that L$1! (Thanks for the tip on these amazing shoes Glimmer :) )

Feeling a little monochromatic

OK, on to the group gifts. Have you been admiring my beautiful skin? Well, lucky for all of you, it is the most recent Toxxic Design Studio’s group gift from AlterEgo. The lovely Adriana in the rose skin tone, is free for group members, and even better, the group is free to join! You get 2 skins, one with red eyebrows, and the one I am wearing, a browless version. There is also a loudmouth applier, a shape, an eyelash remover, as well as a few brow shapes. Any other appliers you need, have been placed right in front of the sign for your convenience (I hate having to go exploring to find corresponding appliers!), they will need to be purchased for a small fee. The other group gift I am wearing, my pearl jewelry set, comes from Chop Zuey, and is a free gift for members of the Womenstuff group, available in the ‘stuff Lounge. If the To The Daisy set looks a little familiar, you may recall that Astrid had previously shown it to all of you HERE, when Chop Zuey had it out as one of their own group gifts. So if you missed grabbing it then, now’s your chance! You get right and left bracelets, earrings, a ring, and 3 different necklaces that you can wear individually, or stack them all together like I have done. The Womenstuff group has a small join fee of L$50, but as you should already know (from the numerous posts showing off gifts from this group) it is well worth it!

Feeling a little monochromatic

The last piece I want to tell you about, my hair,  may also seem a bit familiar, as Love first modeled it for you HERE as a free group gift.  However, the Sheena hair from LeLutka is now available, free for everyone, as a free wearable colour demo! This rigged mesh style, is a full colour hud pack to allow you to see all the different colours available for LeLutka hair. I really do love wearable demos, it’s a great excuse to put out a freebie, even better when it’s as pretty as this hair is.

I have to say, I am really loving this monochromatic look I’ve put together with all these great finds. Would you believe, other than the choice in hair colour, though even my normal black would have worked, I did not plan it like this at all. Sometimes it just works out perfectly this way :) . Alright lovelies, that is all I have for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!!

Every little heart beat

Hello FabFree-ers! I’m back after a week of RL wrangling. It’s been pretty crazy here so thank goodness for some downtime in SL… doing my favorite thing – Hunting!

Every little heart beat

This cute little number is the ‘Heatbeats’ bubble dress from Broken Glass Boutique and it’s the 1L prize for the Love Hunt. The dress comes in Mesh sizes XS-L with the alpha layers. You also get the micro bead red and white necklace in the prize, Plus… a pair of fire engine red panties.

Every little heart beat

My shoes are from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes and they are the free prize for the Add Some Red Hunt.  The are for the system feet so no need for mesh. The prize also comes with a super cute pair of red boots as well!  Now, There is some snafu over at Fi’s hunts web page and the stores, hunt pics and SLurls are not loaded. However, I stumbled over the Hunt prize while I was hunting in LM&RS for something else. I hope Fi’s Hunts gets back up and running soon. I don’t know if the hunt was canceled or on hold.  But, as of this posting, the Add Some Red prize is out and available at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Please check back for any updates.

The Love Hunt ends on February 29 and the Add Some red hunt is scheduled to end on February 29 as well. Don’t delay!

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 2

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

More From The Menstuff Hunt!

Snapshot12_001

Hello again, everyone! I have some more goodies to share with you from The Menstuff Hunt Hunt! Menstuff is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free. The entire hunt will set you back less than 34L total for 100 hunt prizes, so it’s a bargain! Look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object with the Menstuff logo on it. Now is a great time to be a hunter.

“Looking sharp”. That is what I would hear if I were standing here with someone else looking at me (although there is always a chance that person isn’t talking to me in the first place). Pure speculation…but not on how good I look; that is fact! B&T Mesh Studio‘s 1L prize for the Menstuff Hunt is this sharp-looking suit which consists of the Mesh Blazer, a white shirt in layers to go under it and matching Mesh skinny pants. It’s a classy look and well executed. If this were all that was included in the hunt prize, B&T Mesh Studio‘s Menstuff prize would absolutely be worthy of a pick up. But, wait! There’s more! They also included a few additional items to make it even more tempting. In the box, there is also a pair of matching sneakers and lowered suspenders, with a distinctively designed texture, which can be added to the outfit for a more casual look. Fit, as usual, should not be a problem with the range of sizes offered, so this is surely a stop on the hunt worth a good look. You will very likely be happy you did.

PBM Enterprise‘s 1L Menstuff hunt gift is a set of eyes in three different colors. For the dress clothing above, I chose the gray ones because they go well with the dark suit I am wearing. The gift is more than just the gray though. It includes these eyes in blue and green as well! The other colors are quite bright and attention-getting. Each color comes in regular system eyes and Mesh ones in case you prefer to wear those. In the picture below, I opted to wear the green ones. As always, if you click each picture twice, that should provide you with a closer look.

Snapshot15_001

Picking up an awesome hunt prize always makes my heart race, and B Barbie Style’s camouflage outfit out right now for the Menstuff Hunt made my pulse speed right up! The camouflage patterned dark green pullover sweater has a stylish, heavy texture that looks warm and toasty. I love the way it is designed with the arms carrying a more linear, non-camo texture, which gives the garment a distinctive flair. The Mesh Cargo pants that come with the sweater match it well, and the textures with the stitching and rivets are top-notch. Together, these garments add up to an excellent Menstuff Hunt prize for only 1L!

Lastly, I have always been a fan of quality boots, and Stone Militaria‘s free gift for the Menstuff Hunt is too impressive not to mention. The Gridwalker Boots are extremely detailed hiking style boots. They are a must pick up since they look quite expensive. Considering Stone Militaria is offering them to you gratis, this is definitely something to jump on! The boots are Mesh and are included in five colors, so they should prove useful for a multitude of outfits. As if you needed any other reason to pick this up…BOOM! Another reason appears before you: even though the boots alone are spectacular, the prize is even more impressive when you find that it includes a polo shirt and cargo pants as well!

That’s it for now. My next Menstuff post is a special one which I have been quietly working on for weeks. While you wait, try a little hunting. It can be fun and unpacking hunt prizes can be a little bit like your birthday, full of excitement as you rip open presents in a frenzy. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

A Functioning Malfunction

Snapshot_003
I know I posted already today but… before all of these fantastic FREE GIFTS are gone, I wanted to tell you about them!

There is a new event called Midnight Madness that runs every first Friday of the month.  This month’s and the very first round was last night and they had a fantastic list of boards to visit, however the boards were malfunctioning.  As a consolation, most of the participants have their gifts priced at 0L today, so you can pick them up if you are quick!

I am showing off the Jewel Sweater & Scarf set that you can pick up at SAKIDE.  This comes with a texture change hud and just happens to match perfect to the Pennsylvania Cognac Boots that Essenz is offering for free!

I am not sure how long these gifts will be up, and they are a list not to be missed!  You’ll find complete houses, home & garden items, hair, boots, clothing and accessories!  Check out THE LIST!

Playing Hookie

Snapshot_001Hi Fabulouses! As you can see, I’m playing hookie from work today :D, and while I was doing so, I thought I would swing by and tell you about the new group gift at Entice that is pretty cute!

First, check out these cute MIGNON furnishings by BananaN.  You can play for the pieces to this set at this round of The Cosmo Sales Room for just 40L a try!  The bed, of course is the rare – but there are two versions of this rare bed and the chances for them are decent at 15%.

Ok, now back to the free gift at Entice!  Inworld group members (currently free to join) can pick up the latest group gift called Butterfly Kisses that includes the short robe, slippers and bee plushie you see me displaying today.
Snapshot_002This set actually comes with a HUD that changes to three different prints on each item as you can see from the vendor ad below.

Have a great Friday!

Your Friday Hunt Report

newKTMHhuntadGreetings once again Fabulous Friends! If you love romance, then February is the month for you. There are all sorts of Valentine themed hunts to participate in. Love is in the air!

There are quite a few grid wide hunts devoted to Valentine’s Day, and sim and store hunts devoted to hearts are cropping up every day. So have a look at the list. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will get you all “twitterpated.”

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!
