… to a deluxe CEO Penthouse in the sky!  Thanks to Elements Log Homes you can too.  Just pop by their marketplace store and pickup one of their four free skyboxes.  This photo shoot was staged in the 84 prim CEO Penthouse.

The CEO Penthouse ambiance is great for a wide range of uses i.e. : evening weddings, cocktail parties, music venues, restaurants, and of course the odd photo shoot.

Today’s blog post marks team All Spiffed Up’s first visit to NYNE.  NYNE features hair, clothing, accessories, gatchas, and appliers.  Best of all, their group is free to join and has a whopping 19 gifts, 18 of which are hair.

Our model Cassie is wearing the dress that was included it NYNE’s clothing gift box.  The shoulder dress is sized for several mesh bodies and also the standard fitmesh.  NYNE thoughtfully included the dress alpha for everyone using classic avatars.  So, if your looking for a new store to check out, definitely boost NYNE to the top of your weekend shopping list.

The Solar Full Body tattoo is a marketplace find boxed with appliers for mesh bodies along with layers for classic avatars.

A quick trip to LeLutka is guaranteed to put a smile on any hair lovers face.  The Oops hair is a free wearable color demo that can be found upstairs in the older hair section.  The style is nice, and the colors are wonderful.  Oops is perfect for all those casual encounters you’re bound to embark on this weekend.

Cassie’s skin, shape, eyes, and eyelashes can all be found in the Dulce Secrets 2017 Free Dove gift box.  This box is simply AWESOME!  Whether you’re new to Second Life, or simply need a fresh makeover this gift will fit the bill.  Thank you Dulce Secrets for your artistry and generosity.

Moving On Up hands
Fingernails are always a bit of a problem for classic avatars.  Before the introduction of mesh avatars several of our models parted with large wads of lindens is search of the perfect manicure.

Thanks to the marketplace store Vika Design our readers don’t have to follow in our linden bleeding footsteps. These flashy nails are not only free, but also copy/mod. Once you file away an original copy for safe keeping you’re free to recolor and re-texture to your hearts content.

Finishing off today’s outfit are Blackburns Angel Heels Colorable.  The heels are for classic avatars, and come with a color HUD for the skin, toenails, and leather.

What’s Up Pussycat?

What's Up Pussycat? cover
Meow!  No your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve found yet another “hipster cat” outfit for you at FLG & No Cabide.  The backless t-shirt and skirt come boxed together.  They come sized to fit most of the major mesh bodies.  Unfortunately, standard mesh sizes are not included.

Of course, thanks to The Mesh Project the omission of standard mesh sizes and their corresponding alphas is never a problem.  A quick teleport to The Shops will remedy that problem ASAP.  The TMP beta free female body is always just a few clicks away.

Naturally, a system body wearer can always cobble together a few alphas and pull off this ensemble fairly well.  However the backless design of the t-shirt made doing that  quite a challenge.  In the end, it was easier for our model Gabby to simply change over to the TMP body.

Today’s flowing hairstyle is a Lucky Board find from Olive Hair.  It comes with a wonderful HUD loaded with terrific colors and a streak option.  If you are a hair enthusiast a visit to Olive is definitely in order!

… take me shopping tonight!
ASU - MakeMeUP cover
Get ready to get your shop on.  Though today’s look is completely free, it will require a bit of assembly and some sim hopping.  So, let’s dive straight into the details.

The lovely denim dress and whimsical high heeled sneakers can be found at Cremosas StoreCremosas gives lots of wonderful freebies.  The store has two groups: a free one, and a fee based VIP group.  Plus, special gifts are available for various freebie groups.  An avatar can walk out of Cremosas with a good weeks worth of outfits.

Summer, Not Fade Away!

Summer, Not Fade Away! cover
When standing on a tropical island contemplating you’re next snorkeling adventure it is hard, oh so very hard, to accept that Summer 2017 has come to an end.  Luckily for us virtual world enthusiasts everyday can be summer if we so desire.

We tasked Wolfgang to go forth and find some new male freebies.  So he teleported off to a store he saw in a 2012 blog.  Of course he materialized in the middle of water.  The shop closed it’s doors long ago.

Being an adventurous guy, Wolf simply swam to shore and explored the sim.  Lucky for us, he found Cold Ash.  Which just so happens to be a store filled with quality mesh clothing and free group gifts.

Summer, Not Fade Away! back
The California t-shirt comes sized to fit mesh and classic bodies.  The shorts are sized only for mesh bodies.  Wolfgang wears a classic system body, and had to enlist the aid of team All Spiffed Up to get the shorts to work without altering his shape.

It took a little brain storming and two lower body alphas to get Wolf beach ready.  Since the anchor shorts didn’t come with a classic body alpha we’ve packaged up the alphas for our readers.  You can find them at the All Spiffed Up headquarters under the Summer, Not Fade Away! photo.

The leather and gold bracelets are also courtesy of Cold Ash.

Dark Desires

Dark Desires

Live a little this weekend, give in to your dark desires and… submit.  To what?  Well, that is entirely up to you.

Ny Design has the perfect group gift to launch your dark fantasy role-play weekend.  Their Leather Harness Bodysuit is highly detailed.  The harness can be worn with a full bra (as modeled), fishnet bra, no bra & panties, sleeves or no sleeves, and pants only.   It is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.  Don’t despair system body wearers, the harness also comes in Fitmesh sizes XL, L, M, S, and XS.

Even if being strapped up in all that gorgeous leather isn’t your cup of tea, a visit to Ny Design is still a must-do.  The harness was one of many group gifts offered.  And, most of the other outfits were far less provocative.  Best of all, joining the group is free!
Dark Desires
The buckle and studded details add a nice finished touch to the harness mesh.
Dark Desires
Sintiklia’s marketplace store provided the perfect fantasy hair.  The Raphael hair can be worn with or without bangs, and comes with a HUD loaded with bold jewel tone colors.

The mask, lipstick, eyes, tattoos, mesh collar & cuffs are all market freebies.
Dark Desires
N-Core’s Ciara Strappy Edition heels in black put the finishing touch on today’s outfit. Be warned:  THEY ARE NOT COMPLETELY FREE.  The Ciara Heels are a free group gift.  However, the group join fee is 199L.

Normally we don’t mention items that cost in All Spiffed Up posts.  Occasionally though, we find a store that deserves an honorable mention.  The owners of N-Core not only sell great products, but are also wonderfully generous with freebies for their group members.  The free N-Core group gifts make the join fee well worth the price.

Happy Weekend everyone!  It’s time to head on over to Legendaire.  Once again the creators at Legendaire have temporarily set their group join fee to 0L.  So if you have not joined yet, now is the time!

Legendaire has sent several members of  team All Spiffed Up into a freebie collecting frenzy.  Not only have they reduced the group join fee, but, and this is a biggie, they have put out loads of GRRRRRRREAT group gifts.
Pop Culture
Since we’ve been shopping at Legendaire there are always two free gifts at the main entrance.  The gift to the left is a free gift for the group SLF & O.  Which of course happens to be free to join.

On the right is the free with a capital “F” gift.  What do we mean? Simple it is a gift that anyone can take without having to join a group.  Iona actually popped by Legendaire to model those two freebies for today’s blog when she discovered it’s a free group join weekend with  tons of bonus group gifts.
Pop Culture
Iona’s glasses and earrings are wonderful gifts that can be found at Since 1975.  The wall of freebies combined with a 0L group join fee make Since 1975 a worthwhile stop.

Makeup, tattoos, bangles, and the necklace can all be found in the Second Life Marketplace. The bangles and necklace are copy/mod which allowed Iona to intensify and change the colors to suit her outfit.

I Want Candy

I Want Candy
Craving sweets?  No problem, the marketplace is full of all kinds of free tasty treasures.  Ring pops, lollipops, muffins, cookies, if you can think of it you can probably find at least one freebie.

I Want Candy
Of course, you’ll need an outfit to pair with your sweets.  You wouldn’t want to be banned from your favorite sim for showing up wearing only a lolly.  Luckily FLG & No Cabide have loads of free outfits to pick from.

Our model Lucy is wearing the FLG Rock Girl dress.  The color change HUD offers a very nice variety of color changes perfect for the “back to school” crowd.

I Want Candy
Lucy found a fun selection of accessories in the marketplace.

Unfortunately, the marketplace store, Candy Crunchers,  that actually inspired this post updated their offerings two days ago removing their fabulous whimsical freebies.  When I went to verify the freebie links I got nothing.  I even tried to visit the in-world store and  got nothing but air…literally.  I’m sorry to say the cute plushie, choker, and kitty ribbon bracelets are no longer available.

The moral of today’s post:  WHEN YOU SEE A GREAT FREEBIE SNAP IT UP ASAP!!!!

Don’t put it in your basket and wait to checkout on a later day.   Many stores giving 0L items tend to give the freebie in one color per marketplace listing.  Don’t simply buy the color you intend to wear.  If you like something and it’s free grab it right away in every color.

I Want Candy

Lucy started and finished today’s ensemble with items from The Free DoveSentinus Hair and Marquesse supplied the hair and boots.

Before you jump on the nearest yacht and cruise the Blake Sea we recommend a quick detour to Alien Gizmo.  Yes, it’s free 250L gift card time again.

Alien Gizmo frequently sets out free gifts cards for anyone visiting their sim.  If you’re building you’re inventory, or simply like to wear something new everyday, we highly recommend popping by the stores on a regular basis.

New All Spiffed Up Gift

ASU Gold Sneaker Gift
Team All Spiffed Up has put out a new freebie for our readers. We introduced the ASU Sneaker Gold in our Pump It Up! post.  Though we textured the sneaker for Everley, we thought it would be fun to highlight the sneaker’s unisex appeal.

We caught up with Mr Mikey UK at a rehearsal and were pleased beyond belief to find him wearing our sneakers. Unfortunately the only freebie Mr Mikey UK has on is our sneakers.  For this post that will do quite nicely.  Gotta love a man with a flair for fashion!

So grab your friends and pop on over to 7th Heaven for a bit of rest and relaxation, and of course a few gifts on us.
