Counting My Blessings

telsiope FF GG, No Match No Tendencies

Happy 1st Friday of 2022! Although the real world is wild, crazy, and insane here in SL we have so many blessings. We usually don’t catch viruses or diseases here (at least I haven’t gotten any). But always remember this – boys have cooties!

Our fabulous, marvelous designers are always showering us with gifts or offering great prices an promos or sales. It’s fun to jump around the grid to discover new goodies. I’ve been doing a bit of this and that, going here and there to find fashion items you may like.

One of the newest FabFree group gifts (Free to join) comes courtesy of Telsiope’s Couture. This lovely delicately textured dress is Victoria. I love the way the gold threads swirl while making lovely patterns on the cloth. You could use this as casual or a semi-dressy wear.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • SLink HG

While I was scoping out goodies I made a trip to The Free Dove to see what was new. I found these tres chic heels from {Le’la}, the Unka Heels (Free gift at The Free Dove/Free group join needed). If you prefer a shiny shoe you will love these. The package includes sizes for Maitreya and Slink as well as an 8 color change hud.

Next I tripped on over to No_Match. There is a new Next Up game with a new to me style – No_Tendencies. Each try at the machine costs $50L. If you haven’t tried one yet it’s like a gacha but you know what you’ll get before you spend the $L. I scored this Black/white version on my 1st try. The included hud has 9 different shades from whites/greys/blacks. I’ll be going there often to catch the red hud!

Off I go again to scour the grid for goodies!

Peace,

Cre

The hints to find the prizes for Starlight Apparel’s items are:

  1. Find me near a gigantic fruit!
  2. Help yourself to a rink at the bar.
  3. Joined a couple of firey pumpkins for a chat!
  4. Tucked behind a magical stone.
  5. You may need to arch backwards to see me.

Last Chance

There are only a few days left to go to the Halloween Shop & Hop before it closes on October 31st. Some great gifts I am showing from the event are:

  • Beautiful pumpkin rings at Kunglers‘ booth.
  • An adorable bat mouth keychain at Zombie Suicide‘s booth. The keychain comes in a fatpack of colours!
  • My gorgeous black lipstick is from a pack of halloween makeup made by Trend! They currently have 250L free store credits at their booth at the event. Remember to read my post here to see how you can get 1,000L in free store credits at the Trend mainstore before October 28th in addition to this 250L credit (1,250L credits in total).
  • Finally, I am showing Sintiklia‘s gift again, which you can get here. This hair gift was originally blogged by Arielle here so make sure you go read her post to see how she styled it with even more freebies from the Shop & Hop. The hair includes a style hud and a pack of natural, ombres, and halloween-themed colour options. I’m wearing the cobwebs version of the hair and it’s so spooky!

Lucky Number 13!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang,

I’m getting ready to celebrate my 13th rezz day here in second life. (10.23)  I still can’t believe it’s been 13 years!  Why I was still a spring chicken back then!

How I Came to Second Life

We were in the process of selling our house and getting ready to move, and most things had been packed up, but I had my trusty little laptop.  I don’t know where I was reading but I saw a mention of a virtual world called Second Life.  I remember thinking, I wonder what a virtual world looks like!  I had time to kill and my curiosity to lead me and in I dove.

I chose a perfectly practical name thank you, thinking that’s what you did in a virtual world (had I known better I might have called myself willowmoon or something dreamy like that.) and I’m only just checking it out anyway.  I’ll probably only try it once or twice…

My earliest memories are of a lot of nekkid newbies jumping on each other and I was bemused.  Little horny nekkid animated people.  huh.  Imagine my surprise a few days later when I realized they had anatomically correct ones too! (the boys, I mean)  That was like Woah!  ok then!  lol

I wandered off to other areas and I found a house that was like a big log cabin and always empty so being clueless as I was, I would crash there (I was a squatter!  LOL), it was so cute.  I didn’t realize people had private residences, heck I dont know what I thought!

I started trying to put my avi together, back then, there were not nearly as many wonderful freebies as there are now, and what there was, wasn’t nearly as well made!  (The Free Dove was actually around but it was much smaller than it is now!) I took some photos outside that house….  Want to see noob me?  I warn you, it’s not pretty!  But I did get myself some decent hair somehow.  For back then anyway.

The grid has come a long long way since 2008 my friends.  !!!!!  This photo was taken right outside the cute house I used to crash in, I loved the little blanket area and the sparkly rainbows.  Second Life seems so much more real now, with mesh and things look so much better!

13 Years Later!

So now lets talk about my new photo (stark contrast!!!) cause I’ve got an adorbs outfit for you from Lunar.  My shorts, top and jacket are all part of the Chanty outfit which is a free group gift at Lunar (I love their stuff!  I am *dying* for their Lamu Jacket in Pink!), and that group is free to join.  The ensemble fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Each item comes with a HUD so you can pick and choose colors and make the outfit uniquely yours.

My cute golden flower headband is also a free group gift, this time from Evie, and woohoo that group is free to join as well.  Gotta love an entirely free cute outfit!

Tomorrow I think I will check out the fab free list of rezz day gifts, I always mean to and somehow always forget its my rezz day until it passes.  Not this time!  I need some goodies to blog too.  As if I need a reason to find freebies!

Happy Weekend!

Fabulously Fan(Tastic)

Coming SoonHey Fab Free! I am hanging outside the Fabulously Free in Second Life Info Hub! There’s been a lot of talk about all the free gifts and sales we have over here by Jacx here and Arielle here, but I was admiring the beautiful Halloween decorating at the Hub! It provided the perfect backdrop to show off these cozy fall looks I created. 

Funny, Fan(Tastic) Sweatshirts

Have you all been to Tastic? They have the funniest shirts with amazing sarcastic sayings on them. On the left, the sweatshirt says, “I’ve been ready for Halloween since last Halloween” which is literally true for me. Halloween is my favourite time of the year in SL! This sweater costs only 10 Linden on the Harmony Hunt at Tastic.

The other sweater I am wearing on the right says “Resting Witch Face”. This is not a gift, but it is more in the spirit of the hilarious products Tastic is known for. I have been known from time to time to give that face when I’m not in a good mood. They have lots of other goodies and freebies at Tastic so make sure you check the store out!

Sizes Included 

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Tonic Fine/Curvy
  • Legacy
  • eBody Classic/Curvy
  • Classic Fitmesh

Shoes with Stockings on Sale!

I am enjoying wearing lots of cozy stockings and cute shoes this fall season. I am fashioning some here. 

  • On the left are a pair of black boots with cat-themed stockings. The stockings come in plain, polka dot and striped black, grey, red and pink versions. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. I purchased these at MOoH! with the October gift card worth 150 Linden for group members. MOoH!‘s VIP group currently costs 100 Linden to join, and the boots and stockings are on sale for 50% for VIP members until October 28th.
  • On the right are the “Skelly Socks With Shoes” by ~MystRie~. These are available for 5 Linden on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Legacy, Isis, Venus and Freya. You are looking for a blue pumpkin on the sim to find these!

The Cutest Jean Skirt

The adorable skirt I am wearing in my two looks is a free gift at Free Dove at the Tastic booth. The skirt includes several texture denim patterns and it’s a must-have item! This skirt could be mixed and matched with many outfits. I am showing two textures of the skirt here, but there are more in the texture changer hud included with the freebie.  

Sizes Included

  • Kupra
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Altamura
  • eBody Classic/Curvy
  • Alice

See you soon, FabFree!

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Until my next post,

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

Find Your Wings

Don't Walk, Fly

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  I’m back to share one final prize that I discovered while participating in the Free Dove August Hunt.  The event ends soon, so if you like this shimmery outfit as much as I do, don’t walk, fly to the hunt trail.

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

I love dressing up as much as the next girl, but some days, I just want to wear pants.  What I love about this free outfit is I don’t have to give up any of my shine with its eye-catching texture and curve-hugging fit.  This sexy number features a gold corset, sleek leggings, and coordinating shoes.  Packed with details such as glittering sequins, a laced back, decorative seam work on the pants and golden chains on the heels, the Dancin’ Doll outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  As I stated in my post here, each of the hunt sponsors has 5 gifts on the Free Dove sim, and 5 hidden at their main location.   To add EC’s tenth hunt prize to your collection, you will have to journey to the Emerald Couture main sim, activate your Free Dove group tag, and locate the hunt object, which is a tiny green emerald.   Since both the hunt items and the group are free, you can add this entire ensemble to your inventory at no cost to you.  The hunt runs through August 31st, so don’t delay if you’d like a copy of this hunt gift for your very own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Heels for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Bright and Beautiful

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I told you about a prize I collected in the Free Dove August Hunt.  I’m back again today with a gem of a dress that I discovered completely for free on the same hunt trail.

Sparkle and Shine

Hidden somewhere on the Free Dove sim, the flirty Lacy Outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  With a delicate floral overlay applied onto a solid black background, high neckline, and sheath-style cut, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  I love the added border of silver trim on the hemline!  The package includes coordinating ebony, lace-trimmed heels with delicate ankle straps, so you will be all dressed up and ready to go without having to search for matching shoes.  To scoop up this hunt prize (#3 from Emerald Couture), you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but it has a very budget-friendly join fee of zero Linden dollars.  The hunt continues through August 31st, so there is plenty of time remaining for you to do some hunting of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!
