The Light In Your Eyes

My Eyes Adore You

Hey there, Fab Free!  Happy Saturday to you and Happy Victoria Day holiday weekend for our Canadian and Scottish readers!  We have a three day weekend coming up in the US, and to me, it always signals that summer is just around the corner.  I hope wherever you are, you enjoy your weekend.  I have two free gifts to share with you (one is unisex, so keep reading, ladies).  Now there’s a budget friendly way to start summer!

My Eyes Adore You

They say eyes are the window to the soul. I’m not sure if that’s true, but I do know they are the first things I notice when I meet someone new.  I’m stuck with the same old color eyes in RL, but in SL, I can change the hue up whenever I like.  Today, I am sporting May Eyes from Amias, but ladies this gift isn’t just for the menfolk.  These appliers are for the Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, and feature five colors to choose from.  I selected the hazel option, which features a pale green shade accented with brown radiating from the center, but I think the blue is really attractive as well.  I really like the way the designer included a pop of white color as a reflection in the left portion of the iris.  To pick these peepers up for yourself, simply teleport over to the store, activate the Amias group tag and tap the vendor.  Since there is no join fee, you can add the gift to your inventory completely for free.

Stripes

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

While shopping at the Trashed Mainstore, I decided to check out the Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards.  I’m glad I did, because as soon as I arrived, I spotted an “S” appear, and picked up the Blurred Lines shirt, completely for free.  The prizes vary each round, so you might have to wait awhile.  Now, if you don’t see your magic letter pop up on the Lucky Board, or the Blurred Lines picture isn’t on display, don’t despair because you can still get this shirt for free as a gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.  If you’re not already a member, there is a 10L join fee, but there are Teleport Hub group gifts all around the grid, so joining is well worth the price.  This polo style shirt features a turned down collar, shorts sleeves, and  a bold red, white and gray stripe pattern splashed across a black background.  The gift package includes classic as well as mesh body versions.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)

I’m off to see what other fabulous finds for guys I can discover.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).

I’ll Spread My Wings and Fly

I'll Spread My Wings and Learn How to Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a super quick post tonight to share with you another of the Fabulous Finds that Ripley and I discovered on the trail of the Dress Her Up Hunt.  In my post {HERE}, I shared the first hunt item we discovered.  This next one from <Trashed> is just as fantastic!  For only 2 Linden dollars, I was able to scoop up the adorable Birdie Skirt, which features a fun avian print, soft pleats and a narrow waistband that sits just below my belly button.   I chose to pair it with a white cropped top, but I think black would also coordinate nicely.  One thing I really appreciated about this hunt prize is it includes classic sizes as well as mesh body versions.  The hunt runs through March 31st, so there is still plenty of time left to pick up some budget-friendly additions to your inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Fine
  • Isis
  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

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!
