New 2 Shop & Hop Fall 2022 Shanti Vanity Secrets #3_001

Are you ready for another round of Shop & Hop? I think it should officially be called “Shop Till You Drop”. It gets bigger and bigger each round with a total of 16 sims of goodies for Halloween. Tons of gifts and lots of sales abound so get your walking or running shoes on!

The Details

I can’t claim to have completed all 16 sims thus far. It doesn’t matter because I picked up a bunch of fun and cute gifts. From the top:

  • Free hair from Vanity with a Glampack hud containing 9 colors to choose from and cool spooky tophat.
  • Free dress from Shanti sized for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus; Ebody; Fitmesh Classic; Maitreya; and SLink HG & Physique.
  • Free Spooky Chest & Leg addons from Secrets for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Reborn.
  • Free Halloween Kickers from Justice sized for Ladies (Belleza, legacy, Maitreya, SLink, Unrigged) and also for men (Aesthetic, Geralt, Gianni, SLink & Unrigged)

You can get a glimpse of more free gifts in Aline’s post. Also You can grab all of the shops’ surls here. You have all month to visit the extravaganza but you don’t want to wait too long so you don’t miss out on all the great Halloween items.

One more thought. If you’re looking for some spookiness to explore I highly recommend a visit to Spooky Trails @ LeLoo’s World. You can wander around the sim on foot, ride a pumpkin bike, or use the convenient Taxi hud found at the main landing point.

Spookily Yours,

Going to Japan

6-26-2022 Poison Rouge $35L Sunday004_001 (1)

The skies aren’t very pretty down in my neck of RL. So I decided to enjoy a frosty libation while visiting this quaint and lovely Japanese sim. It’s one of those places that’s good for your soul with peaceful settings, tons of waterfalls, and glorious flowering trees galore! What else is a girl to do on a rainy Monday besides do a quick post??

A Pretty Find

Remember the store credits and gift cards you picked up at SL19B Shop & Hop? I picked up this gorgeous, sexy dress from Poison Rouge by using my $350L gift card at their SL19B booth. The Hakina Kimono dress is simply stunning and woohoo it’s on sale. I have no idea why I am drawn to oriental styles; maybe it’s because they are elegant and never seem to go out of style. There are a number of colors to choose from.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

More Hair from Vanity

Vanity has this style, Babydoll is set out as a Free gift at Hair Fair. All you have to do is tp over and grab it! It is a retro style with little bows on each side. Think the 1960s. Included is a ton of huds so you can color the hair to your heart’s desire.

That’s my quickie for today : )

xoxo,

Here In This Minute

Here In This MinuteHappy weekend! My happy place is next to an ocean and I was psyched to put on something cute and free (which surprisingly was not a bikini) and spend some time there!

A Hunting We Will Go

Guys, I tried to do a hunt. If I’m hunting then you know it’s for something really really amazing. As we’ve discussed recently, I’m more of a wait-in-front-of-a-lucky-chair kind of a girl. But this hunt at Luas and Una is so worth it! Aline told us about it already here. There are little golden stars hidden around the sim (I had to get pretty close for them to rezz but maybe that’s just my laptop). You buy them for free, there is no group join required, and there are really lots of excellent prizes. I’m wearing Avery and it comes with a short version of the skirt also, as well as the belt and harness that I’m wearing. The fit is only for Maitreya. I’m not sure how long the hunt lasts, the signs don’t say, but trust me you don’t wanna miss this one.

But Still Glam

Glam Affair is part of today’s Fifty Linden Friday sale. It’s a lovely basic skin line with a bunch of different tones, all with or without brows. 50L today only. You know I can’t pass that up!

Oh Paris- the City of Love!

Parisian Look

Happy day-before-Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!

Today, my post is inspired by the one place on earth where it is the season of love and romance all year- Paris! I put together this Parisian look by combining some of the free gifts I collected at the Valentine’s Shop and Hop! You can go there, collect the goodies and walk out looking like you stepped out of France! I may look like a Parisian now, but the only French thing about me is my love of baguette and brie cheese. Aside from that, however, these items are super cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The Free Hair and Beret

Perhaps what tops off this outfit is the Beret Accessory included in this free hair which you can get at Vanity Hair’s booth at the Shop & Hop. The hair is called “Winter is Coming” and it includes a colour change HUD and a tinting HUD which allows you to change the hair and the hat to any colour. You can find the Vanity Hair booth in the Tinseled sim.

A Cute Set from Pixicat

The top and shorts I am wearing is the lovely gift from Pixicat- called “soft set” in red stripes. It’s sort of artsy and I feel like it matches the hair super well! Get the free gift from Pixicat at the Aurelian sim of the Shop and Hop.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass & Physique

A Pearl and Heart Crystal Necklace

What says love and romance more than pearls and crystal hearts? This gift from Supernatural, the “Kyary Necklace” will be the best gift to yourself for this Valentine’s! The necklace can be found in the Tinseled sim of the Shop and Hop.

Have a fun Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!
xx

As Sweet as Candy

Sweet as Candy

Are y’all still wandering the enormous Second Life 16th Birthday celebration? Everytime I think, “I’m just going to pop over for a minute….” I end up there for hours! If you are just there for the shopping you’re missing some really cool groups and shows in the main celebration area. Give it a go…. you might have fun!

Sweet Sixteen

Speaking of fun… I found this really cute little dress from Candy Kitten today. This is the “Flower Power” dress and it’s CK’s free SL16B gift. And it really is fun. You get a HUD with seven patterns, each one cuter than the next. I picked the watermelons but there’s some kittens ( Saying “PURRRR”), unicorns on flamingo floaties, more kitties and hearts and even more flamingos. I had to click through each of them a couple of times just laughing and ‘awwwing’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Up Top

I got my great new poofy hairstyle for free at SL16B too. This is ‘Druida’ from Vanity Hair. You get a HUD with twenty four colors, HUD appliers for the Vanity hair bases for Catwa and Omega and a box of the hair bases as well.

Second Life’s16 Birthday Celebration runs until July 8th so don’t miss out!

Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

For more coverage on the gifts at Hairology check out these posts:

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Hello readers! Time for fabulous freebies from the Brickness sim at Hair Fair 2013! So, let’s get right to it, shall we? 😀

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Since there were no clothing gifts on this sim, I decided to wear this colorful, summery dress from Hudson’s Clothing Co. It’s the July group gift, and the group is free to join. I added the brand-new group gift jewelry from Maxi Gossamer (check group notices), which comes with a texture-changing HUD. Oh, and my hair? One of two free gifts from Damselfly. This one is Felicity (oL), and comes in pretty much every color.

Hair – Damselfly Felicity (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Two gifts from Ayashi: Aiko on the left, and Liliana on the right. The only come in these colors, but both are 0L.

Hair – Ayashi Aiko & Liliana (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Calico Ingmann Creations has generously set out 4 different gifts in a bazillion different colors! All for come with 2 different HUDS, including one for streaks. And did I mention that all 4 only cost 1L? 🙂

Hair – Calico Ingmann Creations Mandy & Denise (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Here are the other 2 from Calico Ingmann. Again, 2 HUDs for each with a whole lotta colors! I love the sexy,  updo, Desiree. Oh, and when I shot the first picture, I had no idea that Faenzo/Goucci’s gift was earrings! UPDATE: Unfortunately, when I checked this evening, the gift from Faenzo/Goucci seems to be gone. If you happen to find it, please let me know.

Hair – Calico Ingmann Creations Renata & Desiree (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

I think I look a little like Suzanne Somers here. I know, I’m dating myself, but that was my first thought when I saw this picture! This vibrant, green hair and the cute bows are courtesy of Eep (1L). You can wear the hair with or without the bows, or you can wear the bows separately, since they change colors.

Hair – Eep Hair 012 & bows (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

A couple of short, unisex ‘dos here. The hair from Colors (0L) comes in 12 different colors. The Hairoin hair (1L) comes in three very different colors. You really need to see them for yourself!

Hair – Colors Free_E (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair – Hairoin Sparrow (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

And now, a couple of long styles. One the left is Freedom from Iconic (0L), which comes in 4 main color packs, with several more colors in the HUD of each. The band is also texture-change, but the textures are flags from different countries! I’m wearing Ireland here (Hey Love, there’s one for Canada!). My purple pony on the right is from Miamai. It comes in 6 different colors with a HUD to change the color of the hair bands.

Hair – Iconic Freedom (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

On the left is the other goody from Damselfly. This is another one that comes in just about every color imaginable, so you’re sure to find one to your liking. Two gifts on the right: the hair is from !Lamb (0L), and it comes in more colors than I have the energy to count tonight. My favorite is “My Little Pony.” /me giggles  Do you need a tiara? I mean, who doesn’t, really. So be sure to stop by the Slink (1L) booth to pick up this texture-changing beauty. 😀

Hair – Damselfly Elaine (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair – !Lamb Bob (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Tiara – Slink Wire Tiara with Gemstone (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

This hair from Vanity Hair (1L) comes in 9 different color packs, so you’re sure to find your fave in there. These hair accessories do not come with the hair, but rather are the gifts from Tram (0L). Both the hairpin and bow are texture-change. Have I mentioned how much I love stuff that is texture-change? I wish RL came with that option!

Hair – Vanity Hair Morea (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Accessories – Tram Hairpin & Ribbon (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

OMG, I’ve tried on so much HAIR… I’m losing it! AAAAAAGGGH!

Lol, I could never try on too much hair, but I am kind of starting to feel a little like this. Hair Studio One (1L) definitely gets the award for the most amusing Hair Fair gift; this one is called “Bad Hair Day,” and it includes the frazzled pose and hair. My lovely expression is not included, but was added via the free Anypose Expression HUD.

Hair/Pose – Hair Studio One Bad Hair Day (1L / Hair Fair 2013)
