Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun

I’m sure you’re all aware at this point that August is soon coming to a close, and with it it shall take the summer (for the most part…September can still be a scorcher where I am!).  I’m enjoying every minute of those precious rays by strolling down the beach and probably wearing stuff that would make me sweaty in RL.  But you know my SL body doesn’t come with sweat glands, so it’s all good!

A Huge Hat is What You Need

There are so many great gifts at The Hair Fair, I’m sure you’ve been reading all about the goodness here on Fab Free.  I found a fun accessory at the Iconic booth – this enormous chapeau that flops ever so alluringly.  It comes with an extensive HUD to change to a whole host of tropical looks, but I kept it pretty basic with black trim and a cute saying.  And oh, yes.  it’s FREE!

She Still Shines

I have been in a bit of a latex mood recently, and though you might not normally wear this fabric to stroll on the sand, I say just go for it.  I picked up this slinky little dress over at Beauty Factory.  I joined their group for 99L and it was all mine.  There are several other great gifts there too, so the join fee is beyond worth it.  The Vanjie dress comes in both pink and black and is a whole lotta fun. I’ve included the vendor pic below so you can easily see all the details.

Drink it Up

Drink it Up

Sometimes all you need for a great outfit in SL is some cute and fun accessories.  I love chasing down the little extras that make SL looks fun, and I found a few free ones to keep you looking fresh!

Fair Hair

You may have heard that The Hair Fair is going on right now, and boy oh boy is it full of goodness.  A portion of all sales goes to Wigs for Kids, so it’s not just fun but aiming to do some good in the world.  There are also some great free gifts offered up by some of the creators!  I stopped at the Ade booth and there I came across this sleek bob which comes in a full fatpack of fun colours as well as a styler HUD.  They also put out these very on-trend shades out too for free, and I’m having a great time looking imperiously over the rim at people!

Catching Tears

There’s a new free group gift over at Jackalope too, and it’s this amusing little milk carton of “boy tears”.  Don’t you fret though, there’s also a carton of “girl tears” included.  To grab this amusing little addition, just join the Jackalope group for free and click on the vendor by the front desk!

Mhhhhmmm!

A Good Day

Good Day

I had a really good day here on the grid. I found free awesome hair and my letter just keep coming up on the lucky chairs! Does it get better than that?

Little Black Dress?

Why, yes, please! And free? Double yes!  This is the ‘Erica’ two piece dress from La Bella Boutique. This super cute lacy LBD is on the lucky chairs now and can be yours for just a little patience. And, well… luck.  Each piece can be worn separately for even more versatility.  The top looks really cute with a pair of jeans for a more casual look.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink

More Free Hair?

Why, yes to that too, please! I’m still unpacking from the Hair Fair and finding great gifts like this one from No.Match. This is No.Girl and it comes with a sweet fat pack of blacks, browns, blondes and reds as well as a separate HUD for the cute little clips. If you want one too, don’t wait around. The Hair Fair and all it’s gifts will disappear on October 7th!

Good morning Fabulouses!

Wandering Leaf

This month at The Arcade Gacha, Decoy released the sweetest gacha set called Wandering Leaf.  This set is just 50L per play and includes 15 commons and 2 rares with texture change HUDS.  Wandering Leaf is rigged for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and has the loveliest gold leaf detailing!  I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the colours in the set, but I really liked the pink with the brown as shown in the ad (which I have included below).

Snapshot_009Well hi there Fabulous Readers!  I have a crazy night so I am going to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to stop by and let you know about an awesome retirement sale at The Annex!  The sale was actually set to end yesterday, but the sale prices are still up today so you can take advantage of about half the store being priced at 50L per item.  All non fit-mesh/mesh body compatible clothing has been marked down to 50L.  I picked up this adorable windblown Ashley Dress for 50L, beautifully textured and works just fine with my Maitreya body!

Totally Wigging Out At The Hair Fair!

72113trendy 3_001

The Hair Fair. Guys, unless you live in a cave (if you do, I am coming over to watch ESPN and drink beer) you know it’s a big deal on Second Life. All month there has been a traffic jam as avies crowded, pixel against pixel, to see what the best hair creators on Second Life had to show off, and what freebies they set out to lure us in. Well, now things have gotten a bit less crowded and the level of lag is much more comfortable, so it’s a great time for us guys to go have a look. Most of the free items available at Hair Fair are for female avies, but there are some male and unisex hairs offered plus a hat or two for you to discover. Finding quality male hair as a freebie is quite a challenge, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity like this if I were you.

My favorite men’s item I found at The Hair Fair this year is offered as a FREE gift from Exile @ Hair Fair. Part of the Jack And Jill Hair Fair Gift, Jack is a stylish modern cut with the top of the head covered by a mesh piece, and the sides and back covered by a hairbase. A unique aspect of this hairbase is that it is offered in 3 hues, and you may manually tint all three of them to get just the match you are looking for. On my avy, I resized the top mesh portion a bit smaller until I got the look I wanted. This is a fatpack and has tons of colors offered in a hud based system. Exile @ Hair Fair gives you everything you need to get it looking perfect for your avi. That’s extraordinary for a FREE men’s hair.

I, much like many guys on Second Life, wear black often. By often, I mean all the time and in every shade imaginable! That’s why I grinned ear to ear when I saw this denim shirt and jacket set from Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy! Yes, that is a bit of fuchsia, Fabbies, but no worries. It won’t bite. The Ewan SE- Fuchsia Black Jacket & T-Shirt is a brilliant bit of color while catering to our very masculine addiction to black. Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy offers this one-piece garment in five sizes for easy fitting. It is a 10L hunt prize on The Summer Hunt 2015. You are looking for a very small brightly colored star. This is a darned fine looking hunt prize, I hope you enjoy it.

* Guitar and in my case musical talent not included *

Another fantastic FREE gift at The Hair Fair is this long hair offering from Asset @ Hair Fair! The Miracle Hair comes in a fatpack of colors and uses a hud system to change them. Also worth noting: it comes with a set of six head alphas to help make your head invisible under the hair. It is an interesting way to handle that, and I think I will probably be able to use the alphas on other outfits as well. So, it’s a great bonus feature! The hair itself is mesh and has a true rock and roll look! So much so, that once I had it on, I had to run out and buy a guitar! The fit on my head shape took a bit of fiddling to perfect, and I like to wear a hairbase as well, so I added one under it for a finishing touch. If you like long hair this is a must pick up!

I could have worn black leather, but I knew you would be expecting it now that I am a rock star. I decided to switch it up with a very nice FREE Group gift jacket from SZD Fashion. The Leather Jacket in Light Brown caught my eye not simply for the brown tones in it, but rather for the distinct olive tones. The overall texture appears dark but look closer. You will see the nicely balanced tones are very pleasing and give you a wide range of color options when matching it with your other clothes. Another surprising feature of this jacket is that you get it in two sizes of Fitmesh! I don’t have much Fitmesh yet, but this jacket fit me perfectly when I slipped it on. Kudos to SZD Fashion for making a great fit easy!

It has been quite a fun day, from the hustle and bustle of a very successful Hair Fair event, to getting so excited over a FREE hair that I bought a guitar and nearly went on tour! Oh! Time to start saving for a tour bus! Have fun everyone and since I rarely tell you this, then I should say it again: Thank you for letting me do what I love at a level I always aspired to. Take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Driving Miss Daisy

How are you all today? I hope you are having a great week so far! Here is some news about some great freebies and offers for you to enjoy!

!Soul have been very generous over the last few days with their free group gifts and today is no exception. They have a pack of two stripe dresses as their group gift today, which are perfect for a summers day bike ride! They come with appliers for lolas too! My adorable bicycle is from the Vespertine gacha at The Dreamers Factory and is only L$50 a play! There are some really adorable bicycles in there and they all come with cute poses! I also found a beautiful little pearl bracelet set by Imeka there for L$50 which comes in three pastel colours. My little birdy friend is called Miss Daisy and she is from the 8F8 gacha which is also at the same event! I think she is really loving the handlebar ride!

Here you can see a better view of the blue stripe version of the dress by Soul. The Eliza Cork Platform Wedges are by L.Warwick and are available at a discounted price at the July round of My Attic. There are lots more colours to choose from! Please note that you will need the SLink Mid High Feet to wear these.

Here I am wearing the red stripe version of the dress by Soul. My fabulous new hair is courtesy of ISON! It is called Bee and you can find it at their stand at The Hair Fair! I just love it. I adore curly hair styles and I am always looking out for more! It seems harder to make them with Mesh hair these days but I do hope very much that more and more designers will do more curly hairstyles in the future!

The two adorable necklaces are by Tokame and are the second part of the group gift freebie you can find at The Dreamers Factory. You can see the Unicorn Clutch bag which also included, in my previous post here. Here is a close up of the two cute little characters inside the little cages!

I hope you will all have a wonderful day with all that you do! Make it fabulous dear readers!

Romantic Rosamarie

Snapshot_001Hi Fabulouses! I hope you have survived your Monday ok ;).  Even if it was really cruddy… I have some news that might just make your day if you are a fan of Junbug’s designs!

Junbug is participating in The Secret Affair and has the most beautiful three piece Rosamarie gown that you can play for in several different colours in a gacha machine.  After some piece swapping with my good friend Suz (yes they are transfer, so you can swap or gift!!), I was lucky enough to complete a few different colours, but this one is by far my favourite.  I am wearing the blush skirt, blush frilled knickers and the rare floral corset.  Each piece is 50L per play.  Make sure you try the demo first to see which size fits you best as you only play for the size you want to purchase.

*sighs*  I don’t even want to take this off, but I know I must, once this blog is done so that I can show you something else!  Want to see another colour tomorrow?  How about Azure!  That might be my second favourite.  he he.. ok ok.. I’ll show you something else.  Before I go, I also wanted to tell you about some of the other things I am wearing too.

The Keystone Nicolette Headpiece can be found priced at 50L per play at The Secret Affair and as you can see looks lovely with Exile’s new release “Blown Away” at the Hair Fair.  Now this hair is 250L per colour pack, but 25% of your purchase will go to Wigs for Kids which is “Fabulous” in my books!  Exile also has a delish dollarbie at The Hair Fair that you’ll want to snag – Tiana showed it to you [HERE] in case you missed it!

The skin I am in today is WoW Skins Lana which is currently being featured at Project Limited.  Only 50 fatpacks will be sold so if you love this skin – act quickly!

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind

The weekend is winding down for me on this Sunday evening, so I thought I would show you a few amazing things to help ease you into a new week.

If you haven’t been to The Hair Fair yet then now is the time as it is much less crowded now the initial rush is over. Exile put their dollarbie gift out last night, which is a reason in itself to go over as this hair is just breathtaking. They have made a special pack of four colours expecially as their dollarbie for this event and the ends of the hair is a sparkling rainbow ombre! I may never take this hair off as I am so smitten with it! Plus it perfectly matches the adorable Unicorn Clutch that I found when taking a wander over to The Dreamers Factory event. If you join the event group for free, you can claim the little swag bag of gifts nearby which contains this clutch bag and two sweet necklaces that I will show in a future post!

Soooo.. about this gorgeous hair ~ laughs ~ I know, I know.. Im going to be obsessed about it for a while. But as Im back on the subject, here is a picture of the three other colours in the package.

Exile Hair Fair

Ok, I promise I will talk about the other things now! IKON have a new Group Gift for July with the release of their Immortal Eyes range. Their gift is a set from this range in a striking green colour. These eyes are perfect for that otherworldly feel and I can imagine I will be using them a lot in the future! The IKON group is free to join!

As you may have noticed from my other posts, I have quite a love for flowery head bands and crowns, so I was thrilled when I stopped by The Secret Affair event. The theme for this event is Medieval Masquerade with a hint of A Midsummer Nights Dream and there are so many beautiful things to swoon over. The Rose String Crown that I am wearing in the picture is one of the rare prizes from the ieQED gacha but there are several different styles to play for!
