Hello There Fab Free’rs! Sadly our weekend is coming to an end, but I’m not going to let that get me down, and you shouldn’t either. To help keep away the pending Monday blues, I say some retail therapy is in order.

First, I love this oriental style parasol by Belle Epoque. It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at the Belle Epoque main location. This FREE gift has a single hold pose, and comes with a texture change hud that lets you choose from several equally beautiful patterns. To get your copy of this fun gift, just join the Teleport Hub group, there’s a one time fee of 10 lindens, then click the gift vendor at Belle Epoch.

Next up, I think this hairstyle by Tram is uber cute. It’s an older gift, originally available at a past hair fair, but it was new to me! lol There are several group gifts available at Tram, and the group is FREE to join. This particular gift is called F623 (though the package says F719?) and it comes in this lovely pale blue grey color only. To get your copy, head over to Tram and wear your group tag, then just click the gift vendor on the table at the back of the store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! 😛

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet, and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar… although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. 🙂

Bullying Stops Here!

I had really hoped to post this yesterday, but for some reason, WordPress was being a stinker, and every time I tried to log into my draft, I wound up in one of Love’s drafts. Weird! I finally gave up and went to bed, but I’m back today to share this news with you!

PurpleMoon Creations is sponsoring the SL version of Pink Shirt Day – Bullying Stops Here. The actual Pink Shirt Day was yesterday, February 26, 2014, but… you can continue to support the project until March 4, 2014. If you head over to the PurpleMoon in-world store, you can pick up this cute t-shirt for a minimum 10L donation. More is appreciated, of course, but every Linden counts. And fellas, don’t feel left out because there is also a pink shirt for you! 😉

Blogging soon!

From the PurpleMoon web site:

“Bullying can take place anywhere and it’s important to speak up about it. Stand against bullying without saying a word by slipping into a pink T-shirt.” PurpleMoon Creations invites you to wear a specially created mesh pink shirt for males and females and show your support against bullying. A minimum donation of L$10 is required but any higher amounts are appreciated!

Net proceeds from this project will be donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Boys & Girls Clubs Anti-Bullying programs. As of yesterday afternoon, PurpleMoon had raised almost $30kL!

As the mother of a young daughter, bullying is something that worries me every time she goes to school or interacts with others. I remember the “mean girls” when I was young, but sadly, there are so many more and different avenues for bullying nowadays… it really is scary. Many thanks to PurpleMoon Creations for spear-heading this project in SL!

A few more items of note in this post: my super cute, ‘do is a new group gift from Tram. It only comes in this ginger color, but it does include a resizer, so you can fit it to most head sizes. My skin is the Pink Fuel Sora Peach Flushed which Love originally showed here. My bracelet (which says “Friends Forever”) is a gacha from NuDoLu, and because Xia said I need to wear glasses more often, I’m wearing these fun Peace Glasses from Fabuleaux (also a gacha). 😉 OH! And my pretty nails are a free gift from Flair. There are several other gifts available on the wall at Flair, so be sure you pick them all up!

Amo’s room

Amo's room

Hair 1: Truth – Noemi
Dress: RoA – Jyo-gakuin (Group gift)
Shoes: Nyachi – School loafers (10L$)
Pose: RoA – friends pose (Group gift)

Whilst I was out exploring the grid the other day, I came across a store called Room of Amo and saw that they had a big shelf full of adorable gifts! and a great variety of them too from poses to skins to clothing to makeup! The group costs a measly 77L$ which definitely isn’t much considering RoA puts out a new gift every month and you get access to all the past group gifts too! And I’m not talking about one gift per box here, some of the clothes come in a variety of colours or even a whole fatpack! So without further delay, lemme give you the rundown!

Above we have this cute mesh school uniform (socks included!). It’s very bright and really adorable, not to mention very well made! And with a little bit of scientific cloning (aka. photoshop wizardry) I can show you this funny couples pose in all its glory too!

Amo's room

Hair 2: Exile – Crazy in love
Foot tattoo: NEO – Puripuri (Free)
Lingerie: RoA – Star star lingerie (group gift)

RoA specialises in cute lingerie (but has other items too!) so of course there are some nice lingerie sets up for grabs! Both sets (above and below) come in a variety of colours so you can mix and match to change your look! They’re not mesh so they make great pieces to layer under mesh clothing!

Amo's room

Skin: Glam affair – Elvi
Lingerie: RoA – Secret me (Group gift)
Slink nail appliers: Xanthe’s – Lovely lace slink appliers (Free! I made these! :D)

Amo's room

Phone & Pose: RoA – Pinky phone (Group gift)
Dress: RoA – charmant dress (Group gift)

Here’s another cute pose for you! The mobile phone comes with three static poses so you can take selfies, message your friends and call your parents too. The dress I’m wearing has a really nice print to it and I just love the ruffles, it comes in two colours; a pink shown and a lime green. They look great for summer or wear on top of a long sleeve sweater to warm it up for autumn.

Amo's room

Cardigan: RoA – Cowichan hoodie (Group gift)
Top: RoA – Ribbed tank top (Group gift)
Shorts: RoA – Denim shorts (Group gift)

This comfy outfit is made entirely out of RoA gifties! The mesh cardigan comes with male and female versions and the top and shorts both come in packs with a wide variety of colours included.

Amo's room

Hair 3: Tram – C601
Skin: RoA – Ayura (Group gift)
Eyes: Dead apples – Sorrow eyes (Group gift)

And finally, these very pretty pastel skin is the final gift from RoA I’ll show you today. There are also packs of eyeliners and teeth tattoos on the shelf but I felt like I should show you the skin in it’s bare, vanilla glory! It’s very cute, I’m in love with those glossy ombre lips.

Mary had a little…Llama?

Mary had a little...Llama?

Hair: Tram – C601 hair
Dress: KDM – Ami dress (Luckyboard)
Stockings: Amato – Osakana socks (Free)
Shoes: BCC – La luna strap heel
Alpaca: Pixels – Lil alpaca mesh avatar (Group gift)
Pose: Axix – Drama

Hey everyone! It’s friday! I’m excited because as soon as I publish this post, I’m heading straight over to C88 to try on everything! But I’m drifting off-topic!

KDM has 3 cute luckyboards up with a shirt and two dresses, including the one you see above! It’s set on group only but the group is free to join. If you don’t have a slot free or if you’re impatient/unlucky like me, you can buy all of the luckyboard prizes for just 30L$ each! Bargain!

While I was at KDM, I saw a bunch of landmarks on the wall for affiliated stores and decided to check out Amato. I was definitely not disappointed when I found a 1L$ gacha for this little milk-carton mouthie and these pretty fish socks! I had to be a little bit sneaky with this stockings though, they don’t come with slink appliers so I had to wear appliers for a different pair of white stockings so that my feet wouldn’t show (my shoes are slink add-ons) but I think it’s a pretty good colour match, and a good technique you should consider if you ever want to wear stockings that don’t have appliers with your slink feet. Amato also has a bunch of free eyes, hairs, and a gift for newbies who are under 90 days old!

Mary had a little...Llama?

Head: Utilizator – M3 mesh anime head
Bow: TokiDoki – Bow3 (Gacha)
Milk Carton: Amato – kitten milk (1L$ gacha)
Eyebrows: Candy mountain – M3 eyebrows (Group gift)
Eyes: SmexyL – M3 eyes (Free)
Glasses: SmexyL – Round glasses (Thank you gift for leaving a review)

Tiana’s post here made me want to brush the dust off my M3 head and try out some free appliers I found (she also showed off this adorable little alpaca avatar that I just HAD to pose with!). In case you missed it, the other day I did a big post on Candy Mountain‘s group gifts, well it just so happens that they have set out eyebrow mods for the M3 head as a gift too! The eyebrows come in 5 different styles, but I’m wearing short in these photos. If you check out the post I made, you’ll see why 75L$ group fee is a tiny amount to pay in exchange for all the free goodies you can swipe up!

I also came across a store on the marketplace called SmexyL that were selling some great eye mods for free! They come in lots of colours and textures are beautiful. Not to mention, if you leave a nice review on the marketplace listing, the owner will send you these great glasses as a thank you for free!

Have a happy Friday everyone! I’m off to go shopping now~

Kawaii mountain

Kawaii mountain

Green house: Aleta Designs – Ashfield green house (0L$)
Shelves and pots: What next – Beach cottage shelves and decor (10L$)
Step ladder: 143 – Step ladder mini (KMH)
Frames: Frog’s garden – Frame garden four seasons (KMH)
Jars: Forest feast – Seed pots (KMH)
Lamp: Oberon’s trick – Pop desk lamp (KMH)
Books + Pose: Natural – Hunt book (KMH)
Dress: Ambrosia – Fuwa lace dress (KMH)

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you’re all feeling relaxed and ready for a new week! Don’t worry if you’re not, there’s nothing more relaxing than some garden reading on a sunny day! Some of the stuff you can grab at the Kawaii mini hunt is just perfect for a green house or garden!

But first, you’re going to need a green house to put all your new goodies in! Well there’s a free one on the marketplace by Aleta Designs. It’s very spacious and has a vintage worn-paint feel to it, it also has plenty of shelving for your beloved pot-plants. The best part is it’s totally free! Also on the marketplace are these great shelves with plant pots and wicker baskets from What next. Mix and match the plants and accessories with your own decor too for a little bit of cutesy clutter!

Now onto the stuff you can grab for free from the Kawaii mini hunt! The step ladder comes with multiple poses for up to three people from 143 and it looks great with the books and poses from Natural!  Brighten up the place with the pretty lamp from Oberon’s trick, it also comes with a floor-lamp version as well. The gorgeous 4 seasons frames are  from Frog’s Garden and have animated snow and butterflies in it! FG also has a few group gifts up for grab so be sure to join the group for free and grab some essential garden decor. The pretty little jars on the floor by the ladder are Forest feast‘s contribution to the hunt.

Kawaii mountain

Skin: Glam affair – Elvi
Hair: Tram – C601
Eyes: Candy mountain – Orb eyes (Group gift)

And last but not least, my gorgeous dress is from Ambrosia! It’s mesh but has a pretty flexi attachment on the skirt as well as matching blue rose earrings and a necklace!

You thought I was done, didn’t you? Well nope! These stunningly-detailed eyes are a group gift from Candy mountain and they are just to die for. The group costs 75L$ to join but Mynx updates the gifts regularly. And in my opinion, these eyes are worth way more than that. They’re great for fantasy or animal avatars but if you’re not a fan of these colours, you can buy a pack of 6 colours inworld for just 125L$ a pop (Mynx is currently making 33 pairs of these eyes so you’ll have lots of choice!).

Well I’m sure that will keep you going for a little while longer but I’ll be uploading some more Kawaii Hunt things tomorrow!

Don’t I spoil you guys? ;D

Pulling me away

Pulling me away

Hat: Le poppycock – Eighties hat (5L$)
Top: Pull – Lil shirt (5L$)
Skirt: Vodka – Mesh skirt black (5L$)
Shoes: Diktator – Envy
Knee tattoos: Mes petites coutures – Bloody knees

I have a few great freebies and cheapies to show you guys today from the Fashion’s story fair and the marketplace!

First up my shirt is a gift set out for you at the Fashion’s story fair from Pull. It also comes with shorts which I decided not to wear. If you want a little more info about the fair as well as how you can get involved in the hunt, take a gander at Care’s post here where she tells you how the hunt works and what you’re looking for! You’ll need it because my hat which was also shown by Care in that post is one of the 5L$ items laid out at the hidden dressing room location!

Pulling me away

Skin: Glam affair – Neva (The boutique)
Hair: ISON – Heidi
Glasses: AIR – Black cat glasses (Free)
Clutch: Gang/Cold – Brocadia clutch
Scarf: Tram – Fringe scarf

These intricate glasses are free believe it or not! AIR‘s store on the marketplace has a ton of ornate and pretty glasses and sunglasses for sale but these little beauties are a freebie. It even comes with colour change options so you can change the colour of the lenses to match your outfit! The gorgeously made little wings on the stalks really make this a great value steal.

Sinister and Steampunk

Looking for something “different” to do, I ventured off into the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. Now, I’ll admit that prior to this hunt, Steampunk itself was a mystery of the unknown to me. The idea has always fascinated me, but I have just never had the chance to see what it was all about. So… this was definitely a new experience for me, and I saw things and parts of SL that I had no idea existed. In one store, a small brain in a flying saucer followed me around. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared! But this really is a fun hunt, especially if you’re looking for some cool Steampunk stuff. 🙂

Blogging soon!

My outfit – shirt, vest, pants, boots, and hat – are the SSH3 prize from Rag Dollz Steampunk Emporium (there is an identical version for the fellas in the box). The outfit also comes with a pair of glasses, but I took them off to mess with my eyes (see below) and forgot to put them back on. And there is a ray gun strapped to my leg. A RAY GUN, how cool is that?! At least, I think it’s a ray gun. Like I said, my knowledge of Steampunk is pretty limited. Anyway… the chaise behind me is the SSH3 gift from The Vintage Touch, and it comes with several animations for singles and couples. The cabinet is from An Lema, and includes the three curio items on the left:  an antique telescope, a picture of a Steampunked kitty, and… wait for it… a LION’S HEART beating in a cage. I mean, who doesn’t need one of those? The lamp is from Nadeau Shoppe; you can make one or both of the gears spin. Finally, the picture of Princess Victoria on the wall is from Sanna Science and Art. You have a choice of several antique frames, or you can use one of your own. And the seagulls are animated. I kept expecting Princess Victoria to start talking to me a la Harry Potter, but alas, she doesn’t move or speak.

Blogging soon!

I picked up these eyes from the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz. They’re part of a pack of six Steampunk Oddity Eyes, and they come in “regular” and unrigged mesh so you can mix and match. I’ll admit that they were rather huge on me, so I had to pick up a resizer script and mess around with them until they looked less huge. This was as small as I could get them, but I think they look pretty good. I mean, who doesn’t need a little earth in their eyes? My little shoulder pet friend is also not a hunt gift. I actually picked him up from a BubbleHut gacha during Fantasy Faire a few months ago, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear him. I think we match nicely. 😉 Oh, and I didn’t get a good shot of my nails appliers, but they are only 1L on the Marketplace. You can see a picture here.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free. But you’ve only got a few more days, so hurry!
