Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!

Hailing Hottie

Hailing Hottie

Hello Sweeties of the Fab Free variety!  Can’t a girl flag a cab looking absolutely fabulous?  Well I’m going to do it, and do it with style.   I found some free and cheap goodies to keep you smiling through your week!

A Cheeky Hipster

I meandered through the Hipster Fair, and found a boatload of awesome stuff!  Most display booths there have a little pressie for you in a mustache-shaped box.  The dress I’m wearing only cost me 1L at the Cheeky display.  I’m a massive fan of anything with a harness on it!  Plus it’s turquoise, so yay.  This dress comes with an HUD to change the colour of the straps, and it is sized for Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique.  While I was at the Hipster Fair, I also found these fab leg tattoos by Aurica for absolutely FREE! They work with Slink, Maitreya, Belleza bodies and also come with an Omega applier for good measure.   What awesomeness will you find at the Hipster Fair?

Shady Business

Another event currently happening is the 68 Main Event.  There are a few free gifts out, and as I meandered about, I picked up these awesome glasses and purse from Jumo.  I absolutely LOVE the detailing on the purse.  You can never have too many sparkly appliques if you ask my opinion!  To grab these gifts, just join the 68 Main group for free and clickety click!

I’m off to cocktails!

Speakeasy Breakfast Combo

Speakeasy Breakfast
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way through the week! I’m happy to be here with you I’ve got a couple of mid-week finds to share. I’m also grateful for a little down time during this unusually hectic week. The leg tattoos Pru’s showing, and the strappy crop top are both group gifts currently available.

Speakeasy

Speakeasy has this beautiful leg tattoo as their January group gift. The tattoo comes in 3 shades (faded, worn, fresh), in a couple of appliers. I love getting new tattoos in SL almost as much as I do in RL. Not to mention Second Life tattoos are painless and easily changed, and easily removed! To get your copy of this highly detailed tattoo from Speakeasy, you’ll need to first join the Speakeasy group. There is a one time join fee of 100 linden to join the group. Also, there are past group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, TMP

A Breakfast Combo

Next up, this cute little cropped top is a current group gift at a new-to-me shop called “A Breakfast Combo.” This cute little top is one of a few group gifts currently sitting on the ABC (A Breakfast Combo) circulation desk. Just look for the line of black gift bags, it’s the first one on the left. The gift includes the “Cake” top in black, blue, creme (shown), pink, peach, red, white, teal, purple, pink, navy, mustard, and grey. No hud needed, so no scripts, and each color comes in a few sizes. I think having no scripts and several color options make this a perfect wardrobe staple. The A Breakfast Combo group is 100 linden to join. To get your gifts just wear the group tag and click the black gift bags on the circulation desk.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fetish

Queen_001

“I have a fetish for damsels in distress.”
“Don’t be sexist.”
“Not at all. My services are also available to gentlemen in distress. It’s an equal opportunity fetish.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Fetish…

Rather your a damsel in distress or a gentleman in distress, the outfit I’ve put together with the Womenstuff Hunt is sure to hit the spot if you’re in the mood for a little… fetish. Layer on a sexy full body tattoo and top it with a sexy white latex body suit that is as form fitting as it gets, and you’re in for a steamy night.

Get inked.

I hunted down that little red t-shirt at Taox Tattoo and bought it for 0L for my full body “Queen” tattoo. It covers back and front and down the hands and up the neck onto the chin as well. It’s highly detailed and comes in a variety of layers including:

  • Belleza
  • Brazilia Doll
  • Catwa
  • Lelutka Tats
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Omega Face
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Vista Hand

Suited up.

I finished off my hunt by checking out Razor, where I picked up my form fitting white latex body suit for free. It was also part of the Womenstuff Hunt. It barely covers up all the necessities, and is hot hot hot with its little silver rivets where the material straps meet. It comes in fits for Maitreya, Isis, and Freya to cover your mesh body needs.

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

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

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

25L Tuesday_001

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!

Queen Bee

Queen Bee_002

I’ve been out gathering the last blooms before fall really sets in. We’ve had a few warm days and some of the flowers still are blooming. The cold nights will soon be frosting over the last of the buds though.

Late Bloomer

This ruffled romper is perfect for picking late blooms with its pretty lacy textured design and soft color. And you can pick it up free at Ashmoot. It’s their exclusive FabFree gift to all of us! Just don your FabFree group tag and head over to the Ashmoot main-store to pick it up.

Available sizes:

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

Pose pretty!

My pretty pose is another 12L gift from the TWE12VE event! You can find this gift at the B’Style booth and the pose is called “Angel”. It is great for Second Life photographers! And for only 12L, I couldn’t pass it up!

Queen Bee_001

Queen Bee

Since I’m picking all these flowers, I have decided that I’m queen bee for the day, as stated by my most excellent tattoo. This was another TWE12VE event gift. I picked this gift up for 12L at the Lush booth. Inside the box was the cute omega applier tattoo pictured above!

A special gift

NSP Florals and [MUSE] sent out their September gift via group notices with a special announcement that their main-store would be temporarily closed due to an SL glitch (it will reopen as soon as possible). In the meantime you can get the current group gift in the notices (but hurry, notices only stay active for two weeks and it’s already been a few days). That’s where I got my beautiful set of 50s swing jewelry that I paired with my outfit.

Note* If you’re not already in the group, copy and paste this: secondlife:///app/group/fc7863f9-aea1-e3d3-9705-b37dd4bcd531/about into local chat and use it to join the group!

Don’t worry, the NSP Florals satellite store is still open and you can go to it to do your regular shopping for now using this teleport by clicking here. And the main-store will be back up soon! In the meantime, pick up the group gift from the notices!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

Nymph 1

I always feel like it’s pretty special when I can find gifts to put together a free roleplay outfit. Especially one that I feel is top quality. I’ve already shown you some of the great gifts to be had at the Gacha Garden in my posts here and here, but I wanted to make sure that I put together a roleplay look when I discovered that several quality roleplay creators were involved in the event!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

I’m not sure if I feel like a Nymph or a Dancing Girl in this silk and chains outfit by Broken Style, but I do know it is beautiful. This free gift at the Gacha Garden by the Broken Style gacha machine includes a skirt and top that are separate and come in one Maitreya Lara size.

The top includes the mesh arm wraps that move beautifully with your avatar (I didn’t have any clipping issues at all) so they would be perfect for dancing and they worked great with my Animation Override. The detail on the chains and the breast plates is simply stunning.

Nymph 2

The Tattoo…

I picked up the free gift bag at Fallen Gods and saw that it was a tattoo and wasn’t sure what to expect… and then I was blown away at how beautiful this forehead tattoo was. I was even more thrilled at the fact that it is a full fatpack of colors — 19 colors in fact. You’ll get system layers if you are still rocking your system head as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads. I found it easy to apply the tattoo to my Catwa head. (Color shown is “blood.”)

The Crowning Glory…

Near the Kite gacha machine I picked up the free gift and it gave me what became the “crowning glory” of my outfit… this flowered crown of roses. Inside the free gift package is three different colored rose crowns: pink, rose (shown), and white. So you’re sure to find a color to match other roleplay outfits as well as this one. It was also easily editable to get it to fit with my head and hair. I just stretched it a bit and adjusted it and voila, it was perfect!

Enjoy the gifts at the Gacha Garden and if you decide to wear this out to roleplay, Happy roleplaying!
