Big Love

Big Love

Love is an adventure. It can make you feel 50 feet tall, and capable of anything. Perhaps that’s why I felt a bit bold and adventuresome while wearing this dress by DM. It’s the perfect casual dress, comfortable, not too short, but not too long, and just the right mix of edgy and cute.

Lucky for us this dress also happens to be a free group gift at DM. The gift includes a color change hud with a few solid color options for the main part of the dress. The DM group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

Also, my starry violet eyes are from a mid-week “Golden Days Weekly Sales” sale offer at Madame Noir. Blue told me about the sale, and I of course had to check it out. Madame Noir has two sets of beautifully detailed eyes on sale for 55 lindens from now until the 25th. You will need to join the “Golden Days Weekly Sales” group to use the vendor. The group is free to join.

Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!

Opia

The ruffled coral pink halter top I’m wearing is a free group gift by the Opia brand for the Poison Rouge group. The group is 30 linden to join. My favorite part of this halter style top is the ribbon that ties it up in the back. The group joiner is located right next to the gift vendor.

Riddell 

The little tattoos around my eye are a free group gift from Riddell. The wording above my eyebrow reads “life goes on” and there are definitely times in life when I feel like that is important to remember. The Riddell group is free to join.

Autumn Glow

Autumn Glow

Fall is sneaking closer and closer, FabFolks! Like I said earlier, I am so ready. I even unpacked my sweaters and boots this weekend. Of course, here in Texas…. it may be awhile before I can use ’em. Oh well… a girl can dream, right?!

S@bbia must be dreaming of a cozy Fall too with this months free Group Gift. This is the ‘High Necked Knit Dress’ and it can be yours if you join the free Group at S@bbia.

Prepping for Halloween

Prepping for Halloween
Are any of your excited for Halloween? It is my favourite holiday, but it’s always more fun on SL in my humble opinion. I got some amazing jewelry that reminded me of Halloween and an amazing dress on the fall Twisted Hunt, as well as a great pose from the Pose Fair event.

Twisted Hunt- Drow

Pru recently showed some of the amazing prizes you can get from the fall Twisted Hunt, and I’m showing off a couple more today.
The Twisted Hunt is always really tricky and fun at the same time. You are looking for the little cubes with prizes in them at each hunt location, but watch out for the decoys! The main hunt ends on September 31st, and endgame is available to play until October 17th (a game/hunt at the end of the grid-wide hunt where you win lots of prizes if you complete the challenging puzzles and quests). Have fun on the hunt! All prizes on the hunt are free.

the.best.dress.

I am in love with this dress by Ari-Pari. It comes with a colour hud of a variety if colours and it is very versatile. It is their free twisted hunt prize, available until September 31st.

Sizes Included

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

Halloween Jewels!

Some other prizes I absolutely loved from this round of Twisted are several free hunt prizes at Moondance Boutique. There is a whole jewelery set available, so you are looking for several hunt prizes here. Just click the little Twisted hunt easle at the store to get the details about all the prizes hidden here. I am showing off the earrings, necklace and rings and there is also two colour huds available as prizes to change the colours of the jewelery set.

Hopscotch @ the Pose Fair

We have seen quite a lot of posts this month about the Pose Fair, and today I am showing the free gift by HopScotch. This round of Pose Fair ends on September 28th, so get over there quickly.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Winding Down

Winding Down

The weekend may be slowly coming to a close (alas!), but I think I still have a bit of fun left to squeeze out of it.  Time to put on some comfy but cute clothes, hang out on the porch and enjoy the sunset.  Hey, that counts as partying nowadays, right?

It’s the Kustom

As is my wont, I made my way to this month’s round of Kustom9 and played all the lovely gachas (I refuse to acknowledge this as a problem!), but the one gacha that to me is always super worth it is Amitomo.  You really get bang for your buck when you play their gachas.  At just 69L per pull, it’s hard to come away with anything less than a stellar outfit!  In just two pulls I had a top and skirt combo that is ready for all types of porch chilling.  If you’re lucky, you might just get the rare hair!  As always with Amitomo, their items are made exclusively for Maitreya bodies.  Which will you win?

Keep it Sparkly

And because I’m a bit sad that the weekend is ending, these sparkly tears I’ve got on my cheek from Insomnia Angel give my outfit just that little bit of glam drama I needed.  They’re completely free, no need to join a group.  Just head on upstairs and you’ll find a confessional full of free gifts that are fun, surprising and a bit surreal!

Farewell, sweet weekend.  You will be missed!

Fierce Love

Photo Credits: Left photo by Prudence Rexroth / Right photo by BlueGreyEyeGentleman

Under the cloak of darkness, among the wisps and fireflies such a moment exists when love conquers all, even for fearsome Drow. The realm of the Dark Elves has taken over the Twisted Hunt this fall. Will you be able to brave this difficult journey and seek the hunt prizes through decoys and without hints to their location?

The fall Twisted Hunt with the Drow theme will end September 30th, with the End Game lasting through October 17th. Don’t wait to embark on this quest for free Dark Elf inspired gifts and prizes. Blue and I both took on the Twisted Hunt, though I admittedly did not complete the full hunt. Thanks to quite a few of the free Twisted hunt prizes, he and I were able to create these striking Dark Elf characters.

Twisted Hunt Websitehttps://twistedhunt.com/
