No Love

No Love
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m just going to come right out and say it, there are days when I really wish I could wear this shirt to work irl. Just sayin’! Generally speaking I enjoy my coworkers, but every workplace has a few that you just tolerate. The top and septum piercing Pru is wearing are both current group gifts.

The Shirt – This sassy tied top is a FREE group gift at Trashed. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for non-mesh avatars. I think it’s the perfect passive aggressive anti-Valentine’s Day shirt. The Trashed group is FREE to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Ocacin

The Piercing – I think half the reason I love septum piercings in Second Life is that I could never pull one off in real life. This pretty heart septum piercing is a FREE group gift at Empyrean Forge. The Empyrean Forge group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are other previous group gifts still available. This piercing includes a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of individual parts of the jewelry.

Game On!

18-01-12

The games people play…

If you are reading this, you obviously play online games.  I’ve spent countless hours, socializing, blogging, leveling, raiding and chasing the next best weapon in that given game. The games I have played online are many and varied. From card games to RPGs, to social interaction games like Second Life, each defines a bit who I really am.

Gamer Boi…

My gamer look today is made up of two dollarbie gifts from the All ‘stuff Hunt. D2T Designs is providing as their hunt gift the All ‘stuff Hunt Menstuff Hoodie. The Malcom Shorts are the prize at Trashed. Both the hoodie with my favorite mantra “Eat,  Sleep, Game, Repeat” and the shorts come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

If you game for fun or glory, be sure to pick up both of these hunt gifts for just 1L each.

It can get hairy, sometimes…

If you have ever played an MMO and have taken part in a raid, you know that sometimes it can get very intense. Take one too many steps or move in the wrong spot and you can be the one responsible for the raid wipe. That’s the thing about Second Life if you talk about things getting “hairy’, the conversation is usually about hair or appliers. My messy gamer hair is a FREE group gift at ARGRACE. The Minatu Hair is just one of the group gifts available to members. I’m just glad in gaming you always get another life, a second, and a third, fourth…

It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

Which Path Will You Choose?

Down a Gravel Road

Happy Friday Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am ready for a weekend!  With Halloween and the morning-after effects of too much sugar among my co-workers (not so much for me, but I do admit to snacking on a few pieces here and there), this has been a challenging work week, and I’m glad to see the end of the week and the end of October.  One of the great things about a new month starting is a crop of new hunts to check out.  The pupster and I tried our luck on the Dirty Little Secret Hunt, and came away with a darling mini dress.

Cherri Blossoms

My new frock from Trashed features a daring neckline that plunges deeply to offer a sexy peek at my belly button.  I fell in love with its cherry blossom print as soon as I laid eyes on it.  This little number hugged my every curve and fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  Narrow shoulder straps looped behind my neck and allowed my shoulders to feel the caress of the sun.   The hunt package includes fits for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fit mesh version (with alpha layer) for classic avatars.  For just 50L and a little bit of your time searching around, you can scoop up this gorgeous mini dress for your own collection.

Versions Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • eBody
  • Physique
  • Fit mesh (includes alpha layer)

The Dirty Little Secret Hunt runs through November 25th, so you have plenty of time to locate the hunt icon, which is a black key adorned with a red ribbon.  There are two trails to follow on this hunt – a 1L path and the 50L one that Ripley and I set off down.  Honestly, there are lovely items on BOTH paths, so if you have time this weekend, I’d recommend checking out this hunt. (Just a warning, there are some adult items included in the hunt).

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Monday Monday

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I sure put his tracking harness to good use lately.  This time, we hit the trail on the Four Seasons Hunt 2 and discovered this gorgeous flowing skirt (called Petra) from Trashed.  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline, which is short in the front, but falls to knee length in the back, Petra drew many compliments as I wandered throughout SL.  A violet and green floral print splashed across a black background coordinates beautifully with a violet inner lining.  The waistline and side ribbons echo this contrasting hue.  I imagined the skirt trailing behind me on the breeze as Ripley and I strolled through the Mystical Fae Forest.  This has to be one of my most favorite hunt finds of all time.  I just adore this skirt!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

The Four Seasons Hunt 2 runs until July 30 and offers gifts priced at 1L each, which are themed for one of the four seasons.   There are 22 goodies to be discovered from a variety of talented designers.  Ripley and I look forward to bringing you another Fabulous Find soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Kiss & Make Up

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses :).  What a relief!  As you can see, he has almost forgiven me for yesterdays swamping adventures.  Aside from the mantra he is repeating to himself out loud with his eyes closed, over and over again: “I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding“, I think he’s doing ok with it.  His jeep is a little soggy, but will be ok after a day in the sun…  It may take just a few more kisses.

Actually…  the more I think about it, I feel…  If this is my punishment for stalling his jeep in a swamp, I may just do it again tomorrow!

Coming Together

Carson and I have collaborated on a blog entry so that we can share news about a couples matching Glam or Grunge Hunt prize and a really sweet couples pose that is available as a free group gift.  This post is packed full of freebies for both you and your sweetie.

For Her

On myself you can see me wearing the black and white Lauren Dress which is available as a free gift for the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Trashed.  This dress is available in several mesh and mesh body specific sizes, including an alpha.   Make sure to bring your guy with you, because there is a gift for him inside that hidden rose icon too!

For Him

Carson is displaying the Simon Shirt which is the male offering at Trashed for the Glam & Grunge Hunt.  He was also lucky enough to score the Drifter Jeans in rust for free on the lucky board while he was at Trashed which work very nicely with the top.

A Kiss On The Cheek

This adorable kiss on the cheek pose for two is available as a free group gift at Agape Poses with a free group join.  You will actually find a whole wall full of couples poses that are perfect for bloggers or photography.

The Evolution of a Hipster

Hipster 1

A box and a box of smokes…

Serena messaged me and told me I was cray cray if I didn’t get down to The Hipster Fair as there were plenty of gifts to be had (and even a few gifts for guys). I popped on over and boy was it … PINK! Once I got used to the color scheme, I started going from store to store looking for the green mustaches for the guy gifts. I managed to find a few dollar gifts to make a couple of amazeball hipster looks to show you. The NIDOLO XIV Outfit can be picked up at the ARTIZANA booth for just $1L. This three-piece outfit consists of the mesh suit pants, mesh shirt w/ tie and mesh suit vest. The look is versatile as the vest and shirt can be worn separately. My Hipster Glasses are a $1L gift from KIB Designs. They come in both male and female versions and can be worn on your face or on the top of your head.

Tired of Walkman around…

I also found the Adam Sweater at the Trashed booth. This $1L gift comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a great casual look. The Classic Spring Camo Sneakers by The Man Cave is a FabFree goup gift that was previously shown [HERE]. My poses are by Image Essentials. The Evolution of a Hipster poses can be had at the Hipster Fair out of a gacha machine for just $50L per turn. You won’t be devo ‘cos you’re heaps povo with theses cheap gifts.
