Happy 17th Birthday Second Life!  This year the celebration seems bigger and better than ever.  There are 200 merchants participating in the birthday Shop & Hop event.  Since each merchant sets out a free gift, that’s a staggering amount of goodies to collect.

I’m not even going to try cover all the cool things I’ve unpacked.  By the time I got all the pictures cropped, and style cards linked the festivities would end.  Instead I’ll tempt you with one awesome gift I found, and list a couple of links to help you navigate the 10 regions.

As if 10 regions of shopping with free gifts in each store isn’t enough, there is also a separate SL17B gift only area with over 150 interesting gifts.  Plus, for those of you that enjoy working for your gifts, there are also the ever tricky Swaginator Hunt gifts waiting to be discovered.  The party shuts down on July 12th, so let’s get busy.

My favorite SL17B gift is Addams 500 Linden gift card.  It’s fabulously generous, and more than enough to put together a complete outfit.  Simply click on the gift board at Addams’ booth to automatically receive a store credit.  Spend the credit by right clicking a vendor and selecting menu – then pay with credit.  *FYI – Addams group join fee is only 19 Lindens and offers several great fatpack gifts including today’s necklace.*

Our model’s skin and shape are Genesis Lab’s lovely gift.  The Rosie BOM skin comes in 6 tones, each of which include a no-brow option. Add hair from Limerence, a headset from Foxy, and a manicure from Koffin Nails to almost complete the look.

You’ll have to tear yourself away from all the birthday madness to pick up these lovely eyes from Demicorn.  Thanks Demicorn for creating such a unique Stay-at-Home Club gift.

Until next time, party on peeps!

Today’s look includes a group luckyboard gift from 7DS, and a complete outfit-in-a-box group gift from Scandalize.  If you need more incentive to join consider this:  Both stores have many more gifts available for their members.

Furthermore, both stores give new gifts every month.  And, they each have lucky boards requiring group membership to play.  Did I mention that the gifts are high quality?

New Outfit, Coiffed Hair, Fresh Skin, New You!

AS - Nov11-1

Happy November!  To kick off this month’s posts I thought I’d change things up a bit.  All of the items featured in today’s pictures are freebies from the stores listed below.  The stores above the horizontal line have fee-free groups that offer loads of free gifts to members.  Plus, each of the three stores has a great set of lucky boards requiring group membership.  Basically, these designers are so freebieliscous they deserve a special mention.

STORE LIST 

The stores below the horiztional line do not have free groups to join.  However, these talented creators often give out completely free and absolutely fantastic gifts, which makes them stores worth watching.

AS - powder

Let’s start with LSR Moda.  Whenever I pop over to LSR, I’m almost always looking for something short and sexy.  Of course, short and sexy is by no means the extent of LSR’s inventory.  Their stock includes all sorts of garments, makeup, hair, and shoes too. All of the clothing featured today came from either LSR Moda’s group area or the lucky boards.

LSR’s group is free to join, and currently features 6 gifts plus 10 lucky boards.

Join the LSR group.

AS - Cashew22

I discovered Mosquito’s Way years ago at a White Nights shopping event.  The store had an event booth, and gave away a wonderfully detailed gift pair of heels.  I loved the heels so much, I immediately teleported to their mainstore.  As a result, I’ve been a customer ever since.

The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join, and currently features 10 group gifts plus 3 lucky chairs.  Inside the store you’ll aslo find gifts for several shopping groups.  The featured necklace is currently a gift for SLF&O members.  Furthermore, all of the shoes are current group gifts and lucky board prizes  at the the main store.  Hanging around Mosquito’s Way for your letter is well worth the time spent.  The lucky board gifts are full fatpacks!

Join Mosquito’s Way group.

AS - Cotton Candy

Too much hair is never enough!  Which, is why I strongly recommend a lengthy visit to NYNE.

NYNE has two store groups.  Joining the regular store group is free, and at present, grants access to 19 group gifts and 8 lucky boards.  That’s definitely enough hairstyles to get you through the upcoming holiday season.  Each one of the featured hairstyles is currently a free gift in-world.

AS - Maple

Zibska is one of my favorite makeup creators.  Though Zibska’s group is not free to join, this creative designer gives out lots of truly wonderful free gifts throughout the year.  There is usually one free gift in the mainstore, and another in Zibska’s marketplace store.

Today our model is wearing a different shade of the Cal Eyemakeup gift for L’Homme readers in each photo.  Even though Cal was designed for male avatars, it also works as an understated shadow on female faces.  Simply teleport to Zibska, join L’Homme’s free group, and click the kiosk to receive your gift.

If you’d like a few more pronounced eyeshadows, be sure to check out Zibska’s Marketplace store.  Currently, there are two free eyeshadows just waiting to insinuate themselves into your inventory.

AS - Fudge

Sometimes the only thing needed to spruce up your avatar is a new skin tone.   My all time favorite Second Life skinners are the talented folks at 7 Deadly Skins.  As a general rule, the store group is NOT free to join.  However, 7 Deadly Skins features free group join weekends several times a year.  And, as luck would have it the last free join weekend for 2019 is scheduled for November 23 – 25th.  Mark your calendars dear readers because you need to be a member to enjoy the store’s awesome advent calendar opening on December 1st.

If you’re not sure whether or not this is a group you’d like to join, why not try one of the free gifts currently available for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MGS&N) group.  Simply join the free shopping group, and teleport over to 7 Deadly Skins.

Inside the store you’ll find a few shelves with gifts for various shopping groups.  Wear MGS&N’s tag and click the box to receive the Shelby skin featured in all of today’s pictures.  The gift box includes 10 skin tones, and a browless option.  This is a fabulous gift for Omega compatible avatars.

Happy shopping everyone!

ASU - Oct CBF2
This lovely skin from Mert & BusenuR is a phenomenal gift.  It includes system layers for classic avatars, and a bunch of specialized appliers, plus the all purpose Omega applier.  Not only that, the package includes no brow and cleavage options.

I love these subtly macabre spider web eyes from LadyBunny. The included appliers work great.  However, it’s also wonderful to know the box contains both mesh and system eyes. Thanks LadyBunny for making a product all avatars can enjoy!

And that’s a wrap.  Until next time, shop happy.

Pop over to the Trick Or Treat Lane event for the bat septum, bat eyes, and batty tights.  The event runs through November 1st, and is packed with over 50 designers.  There’s a fantastic free gift in every booth.

Today’s boldly big hair is one of Olive’s rotating Midnight Mania fatpack gifts.  So, if you miss it this time, don’t worry, it will cycle back next week.  While at Olive, check out the fast moving lucky boards.  They are loaded with lots of lovely hairstyles.  Best of all, they’re free for everyone to play.

The last stop on our list is 7 Deadly Skins for the Feny skin.  Feny is featured on the free-to-play Mini Mania board.  This lovely skin comes in three shades with brow/no brow options.  7 Deadly Skins also sets gifts out for members of various Second Life shopping groups.

Until next time, shop happy.

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.

After a day dominated by tanning lotion and coastal breezes you’ll need to pop into Alli & Ali for a quick comb out.  Luckily for us, Alli & Ali’s free Easter Hunt gifts are still dotted around the store.  There are 10 relatively easy to find Easter baskets filled with fun hairstyles.  The Unicorn HUD V.2 is filled with so many awesome shades it was hard to pick one to model.

Sometimes finding free accessories can be a challenge.  Today I decided to visit a store I haven’t been to in years:  Dark Mouse.  I found this sweet bow necklace gift on the main counter.  It comes in 4 colors, and is free for all store shoppers – no group join required!   Ramping up Dark Mouse’s freebielicious appeal are four luckyboards.   For those of you with Lindens burning a hole in your virtual pockets, there are scads of cute extremely low priced (25L) items to be had.

I added Breathe’s stylish, but not overly dressy, Choko heels to polish off the look.  The colors featured in the gift HUD are perfect for spring and summer attire.  As an added benefit, the HUD separates the heels into three color zones allowing for tons of combinations.  Simply join Breathe’s free group to make these lovely sandals your very own.
Until we meet again, happy shopping!
