Blues is quickly becoming one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. While it isn’t a large as some shops the creative and quality of the builds is spot on.

Next up is Curious Kitties. I love this designer’s shop! It’s full of freebies and gifts and some really nifty clothes, skins and full avatars. I could spend all day just wandering around looking at everything. So it didn’t surprise me when I found such super cool unique gift hairs here.

  1. – ‘Christmas Angel’ – I love the wings! (Free Gift/no group needed)
  2. – ‘Frasti’ – White is one of my favorite SL hair colors and when you add snowflakes and sparkle… I’m all over it. (Free Gift/no group needed)

Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit 🙂

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack 🙂

strawberry lemonade3

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

strawberry lemonade2

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

strawberry lemonade4

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around 🙂 I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

The Black Event: Fab-Fae for Men + Makeover Your Bod!

Blogging soon!

Hey Fab Readers! I’ve got some great freebies and deals for you fellas today. I’ll start with my comfy sweater, which you can pick up for only 10L from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event. Standard mesh sizes… you know the drill. While looking for a new pair of jeans, I stumbled across these terrific Mesh Jeans from Ducknipple. They were 195L… but before you get all mad at me, consider this: they come in 3 different styles – tight, normal, and bootcut, which I’m wearing here – and they are HUD-controlled with 8 different textures. You get 4 colors in both “clean” and “dirty” versions (that’s dirty with dirt on them… not an “adult” version, if that’s what you’re thinking!). And the texturing is awesome! So… if my math is right, that would be 24 different pairs of jeans… which works out to less than 9L per pair. Not a bad deal, if you ask me! 🙂

Fab-Fae Two Shades of Grey Roll Neck Sweater (10L @ The Black Event)

Need a new skin and/or shape? Then you DO NOT want to miss this amazing group gift from Mr.Bloch. This youthful Danny skin comes in 10 different tones, and includes a shape, which I’m wearing here. But don’t delay! I missed last month’s gift because I didn’t get to the store quickly enough, so go… NOW! Best part: the Mr.Bloch group is FREE to join! My eyes are a free gift from Mayfly, no group required. You can find them on the back wall under the “NEW Luminous Eyes” sign. Don’t forget to pick up the Dark Olive group gift eyes while you’re there. Finally, this shirt with the great camo texturing is another deal from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event.

Fab-Fae Grey Camo Long Sleeve Loose Shirt (10L @ The Black Event)

Blogging soon!

What else do you need with your new skin, shape, and eyes? Hair, of course! You can pick up this cool 2-color hair from Uncleweb Studio (a.k.a. uw.st) by joining the free group at the front of the store. 5 different versions/colors are in the box. This is a 2012 group gift, but it’s still available, so get yours while you can. And you can dress your new bod in this Commando shirt from the Fab-Fae cart for just 10L.

There you go, guys. A whole new you! 🙂

Mr. Autumn

Blogging soon

I’m out at Central Perk this afternoon for a little coffee and autumn sunshine, and I thought I’d do a quick post before my caffeine buzz wears off. I’m wearing the Mr. Autumn jacket, sweater, and shirt combo by Coepio. This item is one-piece mesh, and comes with sweaters in brown, gray, or black. The Coepio group is free to join, and there are quite a few other gifts for men available. My wing tips are a new-ish group gift from ::GABRIEL::. Again, lots of great gifts are available at ::GABRIEL::, so if you’re a new resident, or an old one who hasn’t been over in a while, be sure to check them out!

Trick or Treating in Kauna and UW.St.

kauna2_Final

It’s almost time to go trick or treating and Kauna wants to make sure your dressed warm for the chilly night ahead. They have two Halloween knit sweaters as free gifts at their store near their other sweaters. Above I am wearing the skeleton and below I have on the pumpkin. If you haven’t had a chance yet, I highly reccommend the Ghost of Halloween hunt that I told Xiu about. My sexy orange hairstyles in both pictures are GOH hunt gifts from UW.St. The adorable pumpkin bucket above and pumpkin bag below are GOH hunt gifts from SEY.

kauna1_Final

I was looking for the perfect mesh pants to go with this outfit and came across them from B&T on the Fashion Boulevard Halloween Hunt! You can pickup the Mesh Black Spiderweb Jeans once you locate the skull and buy it for just 10L. Men’s gifts are hidden in silver skulls. Speaking of skulls…you can get my Skull N Crossbones shoes for just 5L on a very short hunt from the Halloween sim exploring their haunted house. The cute bracelet of skulls in my mouth is a freebie from (-Atypical-).

kauna3_Final

The handsome skin I am in is another version of the current group gift from ~Tableau Vivant~. It is the Marilyn skin which comes in the light tone I am wearing, but also the darker tone I blogged before. The Tableau Vivant group costs 50L to join and has great new gifts every month. My sparkling mesh eyes are Pearl- Clear Pond from Poetic Colors which are free for joining their subscribe kiosk.

Don’t delay, Halloween is almost here and soon these offers will be history!

Splitting Hairs

One of the worst decisions I had to make when creating my avatar was what hair to use. I tried several different styles before I found one I liked. And it is about what the individual likes, not other people. Here are four hair styles you might want to try on. At Kin, I found a box of free hairs. While most were for women, I found two mens hair worth checking out. The Male Hair 1 gives me a sandy look. But I’ve been told by several people I’m a true brunette. 🙂

Kin Male Hair 1 Freeb

The Kin Male Hair 4 is closer to what my shade should be.

Kin Male Hair 4 Freeb

On the counter at Uw.St , there are two free hairs. The Roy Hair hides one of my baby blues.

Uw.St Roy hair

The Reed Hair is closer to what I normally wear. I might have to let this one “grow” on me lol

Uw.St Reed hair

*Kin Male Hair 1 Freeb ($0L)
