Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Lavender Key of Time

Lucky Lavender
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Lucky Lavender

This gift at Apple May Designs is extra awesome because you don’t have to join the group to get it. Non group members can pick up this adorable polka-dotted two piece Shae set in either pink or lavender for just 49 lindens per color. If you are already an Apple May Designs group member, or you wanna join (there is a one time fee of 25 lindens) you can get one or both of the Shae sets for FREE by participating in the group only Lucky Letter boards. There is also at least 1 previous group gift still available. Even though you can’t see it in this photo, there’s an enormous bow in the back that just adds to the charm of this set. It’s like retro lingerie meets Disney princess and I love it!

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza Isis & Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Tattoo Time

Up next, how pretty is this very feminine under-bust tattoo by Moon Tattoo?! I love all the delicate lines. You can pick up this tattoo for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. I guess 49 lindens must be a theme for this post! The inexpensive tattoo comes in an omega applier and includes a classic system tattoo layer.

Corn-Dog Hustler

Corndog
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t mind telling you I had a wonderfully lazy weekend so far. I hope yours has been just as awesome. Speaking of awesome, I am excited to share the several gifts I used to create this look. I’d struggle to tell you what my exact personal style is, I’m a little bit pin up, a little bit goth, and a little bit grunge. Ha! This look definitely matches my eclectic tastes, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Corn Dog

There’s something wonderful about food in Second Life. You can enjoy anything and everything without any negative affects. Fair food like this corn dog from Label Motion has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s terrible for you, but oh so good! Now you can enjoy a corn dog and have zero guilt. This fun prop is a FREE subscriber gift from Label Motion. I did have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get the gift, but the minimal effort was well worth it. In the gift you’ll get a mustard version (one whole, one half eaten), and a ketchup version (also whole or half eaten).  I think it makes for a super cute photo prop.

The Hustler

Pink Hustler has several group gifts out right now, the most recent of which is this super adorable bandanna hairstyle. No pin-up girl wardrobe would be complete without it. Not to mention it’s one of those styles that can dress up or be very casual. The gift includes the hairstyle and two color change huds. The huds also include several floral textures for the bandanna.

While picking up the group gift hairstyle at Pink Hustler, I also snagged a copy of the bento nails group gift that is still available. These extra long claws are seriously cute. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick colors for every other nail, or you can choose to color them all the same. There are quite a few polka dotted color options in bright summery colors. There’s also a cute little bow on the left ring finger that has separate color options. These bento nails by Pink Hustler come in a Maitreya fit only. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. As I mentioned before, there are several past gifts still available including the two shown here today!

A Little Side Note: Pru is also wearing a few past group gifts that had been previously blogged but are still available! The top is a FREE group gift at Vinyl (group is FREE to join) which was originally blogged by Love here. The eye makeup is also a FREE (group is 100L to join) group gift from Slack Girl previously blogged by me here.  

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/04/2017 – Monomania

Monomania Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, Friday may be coming to an end but the weekend is just beginning. With that in mind I highly suggest you take a moment this weekend to visit Monomania. They just so happen the subject of this weeks Designer Friday post! Why should you visit? Well first of all, the shop is very prettily decorated and landscaped, there’s even a lush courtyard type oasis you can enjoy. I always admire when there is great scenery to go along with great shopping! However, a big reason would be the huge number of group gifts and freebies you’ll find.

MonoMania Gifts
As you enter the store the wall of vendors you’ll see are the currently available Monomania group gifts. Seriously ladies, that’s half way to a new wardrobe! haha There are also a few group only Lucky Letter boards, and a group only Midnight Madness board. The Monomania group does have a one time join fee of 50 lindens, however as you can see it is 50 lindens well spent! The style of ladies mesh and applier clothing at Monomania has a wide range, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Monomania Other Groups & Camping
A bit farther to the right of the Lucky Letter boards at Monomania you’ll find a large group of affiliate groups and their associated gifts. It’s in this spot where the FREE and exclusive Fab Free group gift by Monomania is available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t picked this gorgeous green mesh dress up yet, you’ll want to make sure to snag it. It’ll be great for the current warm weather or with cute knee boots in the fall. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Monomania also has a camping chair, park your avatar for 30 minutes to claim the prize!

Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs, and happy shopping!

A Cheeky Find

Cheeky Rose

EvelineInTheBox sent out a special new gift to celebrate 1,000 members… and if you hurry you can pick up this free Nora dress in pink. The group is free to join. The detailing on this dress is fantastic. It has a pretty cut and neckline with a floral ribbon edging around the hem and sleeves. I realized belatedly that I should have given you a picture of the back of the dress, as the back is a criss-cross of ribbons for a beautiful, feminine look, with just a touch of butt-cleavage (for the daring ones!).

This dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Cheeky Rose 2

A cheeky find.

I’m still enjoying the Aloha Fair, though I’m not sure how much longer you have to pick up all the great gifts. I found this pretty necklace by Cheeky called Boho Rose as a 1L gift and it matched my dress just perfectly. I picked it up and found it fit over most of my mesh dresses and has a pretty rose metallic finish. It’s a steal for just 1L!

Be sure to visit the Aloha Fair before it is over… the variety of beautiful dollarbie gifts is just amazing!

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

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!

Man in Black

Man in Black

Black as Midnight

Hey there! I’m attempting a post to see how it goes. My recuperation has been nice, relaxing, and BORING! But unfortunately I’m returning to work in a couple weeks. So much for the life of leisure. <sigh>  I’ve been watching listening to way too much TV. One of my favorite new shows is Midnight, Texas. The church in the show reminded me of the church at The Last Forever. So here I am in my midnight best showing it off.

Today’s outfit is a free gift for the Third Life Group members at !BBN!. The Man in Black outfit consists of pants and a shirt, both in sizes XS-XL and also a fitted size for each. The Third Life Group does have a 10L join fee, but a small price for such a nice outfit. This outfit is going into my keeper closet, for sure!
Hopefully, I’ll see you soon!

Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!
