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.

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.

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!

Finish off today’s look with a couple of fantastic gifts from eBento’s 2nd Anniversary round.  I’m a huge fan of 7 Deadly s[K]ins creations, and their Paradise skin gift doesn’t disappoint.  The Paradise skin is sweetly freckled, lightly rouged, and supports brow/browless options.
Next, visit GA.EG’s booth for their Ulitmate Eye gift.  This mesh eye system is absolutely wonderful.  I discovered GA.EG a year ago at eBento’s first anniversary celebration, and have been a fan ever since.  These eyes are highly configurable, and are uniquely animated. If you picked up last year’s Ultimate Eye gift, you’ll  still want to pick up this year’s gift, the included eye pack is new.
Since it’s eBento’s birthday,  there are tons of other fabulous gifts to discover.  This round is full of interesting items from talented designers.  Simply join the free event group, click the birthday cakes at each booth, and leave happy.
Until next time, shop happy!

It’s not just the crocus and daffodils that are calling for an end to winter.  The designers at Seniha have put out a new group gift that screams for an early spring.  Lyna comes in two lovely versions sized to fit  Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.  Simply join Seniha’s fee free group to make this beauty your own.
Today’s coif is one of many fun styles available on Olive’s fast moving lucky board wall.  The bubble goth colorway so bright and cheery it seemed like the perfect fit for a spring themed outfit.
ASU - SpringintheAirfoot
Finishing off today’s look is a fabulous pair of ankle boots from Mosquito’s Way.  The Clara boots come in a highly versatile shade of chamois to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.  Though the boots are sized for particular mesh bodies, that doesn’t mean others can’t wear them.  Most classic avatars should be able to find an alpha in their inventory that will pair nicely with this style.
Shop happy everyone!

HAIR|Olive Hair .Sabrina – w/ hair color & headband HUDs (luckyboard/free)DRESS |Sevyn East .January dress – 4 colors for Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/Tonic (GG/free)
| SHOES |Mosquito's Way .Kendra boots – Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/TMP/Classic (GG/free)

Yes, I admit it.  I’m a distracted hunter.  I don’t think I’ve ever been into a store, found the hunt object, and left.  I can’t seem not to ogle all the new releases. If I see a few somethings I like there is always that light bulb moment.   You know the one.  The giant hmm, I wonder if this store has group gifts?
Thanks to my meandering hunting style, I discovered Sevyn East’s group gifts area.   Which is where I found today’s cozy sweater dress.  It comes sized for mesh bodies, but classic avatars could easily wear it by using an off the shoulder shirt alpha from their inventory.  Also included in the box is a texture changing HUD with four choices.
ASU - Feb4shoe
These lovely boots are the current group gift at Mosquito’s Way.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they’re sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP, and Classic avatars.  Quite a nice gift, thanks MW.
Today’s hairstyle is one of many currently featured on Olive’s lucky board wall.  The lucky boards cycle quickly, and are available to all visitors – no group join required.
Shop happy everyone!
