“Music is the strongest form of magic.”
Marilyn Manson

I never know where my blogging adventures are going to take me, and that’s lots of fun.  I never know what form my blog photos will take and there are no limits to the imagination.  Today they have taken me on a magical, musical journey into the mystical fairy realms of wonder and light.  I found this gorgeous apparel at Planet29 in a gacha (75L) from FenDuDu (Flower Fairy Gacha).  This is Flower Fairy Streamline B #2.  It is a sky blue, very pretty! I’ve circled it below in the key.  It is one size.

I realize there is a lot going on in this photo, so lets not ignore the elephant piano in the room.  This piano is more than just a photo prop, it plays music and it animates you along with the music!  It is a very cool item from Culprit that you can find at Uber.  It was essential to my ethereal magical mystery tour, per se.  😉  Background is just a bunch of my own stuff I threw together and other magical surprises can be found in my credits list below.

Next time I will just be appearing as myself.  😛  Look out!

Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Making it Shine

Making it Shine
Some of the things I love the most are sparkly – there’s something ever so wonderful about glitter and shine.  Other times, all I want is a bit of rugged with straps and buckles.  Today’s mood comes to you courtesy of not being able to make up my mind: Straps? Buckles? Purple? Shine? Ahhhh… why not have it all?

Uber Good

Grixdale have put out another free wearable demo of their latest release over at this month’s round of Uber.  The Calliope dress comes sized for Maitreya bodies and is in this lovely purple hue with the darker geometric triangles that give it a bit of a shiny texture.  No need to join a group here, just click on the free demo and it’s yours!  This round of Uber is running until January 22nd!

Sparkle, sparkle!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Merry Yule, and all those Holiday happy things to each and every one of you! Thank you as always for being here. I hope your day is bright. Maybe it can be a little bit brighter with a few group gifts to splurge upon here in Second Life. Yesterday TRUTH sent out a new group gift hairstyle to their VIP group! Also, Beautiful Dirty Rich has out a free 500 linden gift card for their group members now through December 26th. I’ll let you know all about each of these fantastic fabulous gifts below. Enjoy!

TRUTH 

This pretty up-do is a free group gift given to the TRUTH VIP group. It has a style hud that allows you to style the hair with or without the tendrils in the front, with or without the hairbase, and a slightly more kempt or more wispy bun. The little fairy lights are also optional. This group gift from TRUTH is of course a fatpack as well, so you’ll get all the hair colors. There is a join fee of 350 linden to join the TRUTH VIP group. You’ll find this gift waiting in the notices.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

Beautiful Dirty Rich put out a generous 500 linden store gift card just in time for the Holidays. This free group gift can be picked up and used from now through December 26th. The B.D.R. group is required, you’ll need to wear the group tag when you click the gift vendor. The group is free to join, so all you need to take advantage of this sweet offer is open up a group slot. I managed to pick up 3 different items with my gift card, so if you are careful with your spending, 500 linden will go far!

Merry Christmas!!

New Wave

New Wave

There’s something I love about the brightness and madness of 80’s fashion.  There was hot pink, lurid yellow, and flying geometric shapes everywhere.  There may be a time when I no longer like the madcap insanity of it all, but that is not this day.  Time to put on some New Order and dance with a vacant expression on my face!

First Things First

There are two free things in this fun outfit that made me want to listen to New Wave  music and eat pop rocks (I have no idea what the pop rocks have to do with anything, but let’s just go with it).  I’ll start with this hot pink and quite unique top by Enigma Apparel.  I picked it up for free over at The Beauty Sales Event.   There really are several nice gifts at this event, so it’s definitely worth a trip.  No need to join a group, just click on the gifts at each stall.   You’ve got until December 11th to pick them up!

Sizes

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

Second Things Second

To match the hot pink mood, I totally needed a nice bright skirt.  Luckily for me, Grixdale are up to their old tricks over at this month’s round of Uber.  You’ll find this free wearable demo which is sized for Maitreya and TMP completely free, isn’t that nice?

Turn up the music!

Fall Friends

 

Fall Friends

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I’d fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are inches close to October already? I feel as though August lasted forever, but September has flown by. Needless to say, I’m so excited that my favorite time of year is here at last. Bring on all things autumn, I’m ready! For this post I’ve got freebies from PosEd and LYBRA to share with you.

PosEd

Speaking of autumn things, how cute are these squirrels?! My squirrel friends and the pail of pumpkins are part of a free Subscriber gift pose at PosEd. The gift includes a pose stand with the pose, and the props rez when you use the stand. The props are easily moved should you need to adjust them here or there. To get your free copy of this fun fall pose just head over to PosEd, join their subscriber, then click the pose vendor.

LYBRA

Did you know that LYBRA is now one of our fantastic fabulous Fab Free designers? This beautiful top is their current free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The gift top includes a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices. To get your copy of this free gift, wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendor over at LYBRA. If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, don’t fret the group is free to join.

I think this shirt generally sums up my feelings.  And probably a lot of yours too, dear readers.  Say no more!

Uber it Up!

There are few days left to this round of Uber, and we’ve shown you lots of the free goodies you can grab on the blog.  I couldn’t help but show you this fun tee from one of my fave designers, Miss Chelsea.  It’s completely free when you visit Uber, no need to join a group!  There are so many fun gifts at Uber that you’ll probably be unpacking for ages.  Don’t wait though, this round ends on the 22nd!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Bonbon Goodness

There’s a new group gift over at Bonbon.  Their hair is so cute, I can rarely hold myself back from their new releases.  To get this fun hairstyle (which comes with several different bang options, as well as loads of different hair colour options in the HUD), all you have to do is join their group for 99L.  You gain access to a whole pile of their older gifts too when you join, so totally worth it!

Come on 2020, get your act together!

And this gorgeous blue cobalt color.. sooo pretty! In fact this top is so pretty and so well designed.. I’m checking out all of Emery!

Pink Perfection!

Pink Perfection

Oh my Stars, FabFree! have you been to UBER yet? SO.MANY.GIFTS! I actually had a hard time deciding which cute thing to show off. I know, I know it’s a great problem to have. Then I opened the gifts from Mimikri and Osmia and I knew what I was blogging. I mean, how could I resist a pink bikini with studs???

Itsy Bitsy

Hooleee Crow! Would you look at this itsy bitsy bikini? Pink and tiny and studs, be still my heart. This is the ‘Celeste Bikini’ from Mimikri and it’s free at Uber. I don’t have a whole lot of items from Mimikri in my closet but man, I gotta change that. This little whisper of a swim suit is so perfectly done. Every detail is spot on and I am in love. Plus… it’s free!

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLInk – Hourglass, Physique

Up Top

Another super cute free gift at Uber comes from Osmia. This ‘Aria Bucket Hat’ (My people always called this style a ‘boonie hat’) comes with a HUD for choices of cute colors. Doesn’t this pink look like it was just made for the bikini?! Again, it’s really well done and I love it to pieces!

UBER runs until September 22 which is coming faster than ya think, so get over there and load up!

Lilacs & Lace

Lavender Lace

If you haven’t made your way to Uber yet, I highly suggest you go. It’s so worth the trip for the genuinely fabulous free gifts during this anniversary round. For this post I’m sharing with you the free Uber gifts from Mossu, Carol G, MonCheri, and Tip2Toe. There is no group requirement for any of these gifts, just click the giftboxes or purchase them for zero linden.

Mossu

My gorgeous lilac lace camisole is the free Uber gift from Mossu. I definitely had an “ooo” moment when I tried it on. It comes in the lovely lilac shade shown and a few sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Meshbody Legacy

Carol G

If you’ve been looking for an utterly feminine almost lace-like tattoo, look no further than the free gift from Carol G at Uber. This upper-body tattoo comes in BOM layers and several opacity options.

Appliers Included: Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Legacy /BOM Layers

MonCheri

I really love the look of this simple yet elegant necklace by MonCheri, which is also free at Uber. It comes fitted for a few body types, and has a hud with a few more color choices than the usual metal colors. I even found a pretty metallic purple to match my top.

Necklace Sizes Included: Rigged Belleza (Freya, Isis), Rigged Maitreya Lara (Original, Petite), Rigged MeshBody Legacy (Original, Perky), Unrigged Mesh

Tip 2 Toe

Lastly, I couldn’t resist the allure of the pretty purple mani/pedi appliers from Tip2Toe. They are of course free at Uber as well. The polish is a French tip style with nude and purple tip options.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya
