Is the heat getting you down?
Though we can’t physically cool you down, we can offer a distraction. Why not pop over to the Helping Haven Gateway for a round of Greedy Dice, a stroll along the beach, a romp through the forest, or you know – do as Team All Spiffed Up does – raid their freebie cache!
This colorful mini is just one of the fun finds.
Nice detailing and an included alpha for classic avatars. Not a bad freebie, not bad at all!
Since we managed to hijack Lady Mystic along with her lovely lips for another post, we simply had to feature more lipstick from Livia. Just Reds is this month’s group gift at Livia. This lipstick set is simply awesome. Thanks Livia for another great gift!
There is no need to say no to these quality sandals. The detailing is fab, they are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet, are black, and best of all they’re free. So pop over to Pure Poison to complete today’s look.
Mystic’s Style Card:
DRESS – *Stars*Fashion Mini Dress – Mesh & classic avatar @ Helping Haven (0L)
LIPSTICK – Livia Just Reds Set – Appliers only 6 colors (group gift 0L/0L to join)
SHOES – Pure Poison Claudia Sandals – Mesh only, black (group gift 0L/0Lto join)
Helping Haven Gateway – Great gateway sim run by dedicated volunteers committed to helping new residents.
…and utterly delicious!
Today Team All Spiffed Up finally gets the opportunity to welcome the ever gorgeous Lady Mystic into our model pool! Freebies and Mystic don’t normally mix, but thanks to Blueberry’s fantastic new group gift, we caught her out.
The top-tied Mimi dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies and is packaged with the full fatpack HUD. That’s 70 different looks with the option of a built in panty.
Blueberry always adds such wonderful touches to their garments. Look at that fold detailing!
Since our blogs are all about the freebies, we were able to talk Mystic into popping over to to Livia, joining their free group, and patiently modeling two of their wonderful gifts.
The Gianna lipstick gift is for mesh heads only with appliers for Lelutka, Vista, and Omega systems.
Apologies dear readers, we experienced a little darkroom mishap in the main Gianna picture accidentally doubling one of the shades and omitting the luscious cherry red hue above.
***YIKES – while working in the darkroom for the next blog entry (Summer Nights) it was obvious that the last lipstick in the composite picture did not belong to the Gianna lipstick pack. That lovely tomato red is actually part of Livia’s Just Reds set.
Who doesn’t love a cruelty free cheetah print? The Cheetah Girl mani/pedi applier set is yet another terrific gift at Livia. Appliers included are for: Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, and Omega systems.
It would be remiss not to mention the bento ring set that is quietly stealing the scene from our manicure. Yes it was free, but “was” is the operative word. Not long ago eBento celebrated its birthday with a phenomenal gift rich round. So many designers giving gifts galore, OMG – note to self: never miss an eBento anniversary round! Meva was in attendance, their gift (Heidi Bento Rings Gold set) was one of the round’s best.
Though the Heidi Set is no longer free it is still available at Meva for a modest sum. So, for those of you who can’t live without making this set your own, here is your taxi: MEVA.
Up close and personal: Cheetah Girl’s six color options.
Mystic’s Style Card:
DRESS – Blueberry Mimi tied-front – 70 color HUD, mesh only (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Fans of futuristic urban noir films are going to love the Hangars Liquides sims. The environment completely immerses the senses, tempting even non-role play enthusiasts to dabble a bit. Fortunately, we managed to hold it together long enough to snap a few pics for today’s post.
Recreating this look will take 6 teleports, 5 free group joins, and one quick marketplace grab. Let’s get this party started!
The simple yet stylish gradient sweatshirt is a group gift from Revelation. It comes with 11 color options sized for mesh bodies only. However, since it’s a sweatshirt it would be easy enough for classic avatars to scare up a suitable alpha from their inventory.
Mission awesome skirt requires a visit to Cremosas Store. It is boxed for mesh bodies only and supports: Altamura, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Maitreya, and TMP.
If you’re looking for a bit of protection from sooty city rain this marketplace find will do the job nicely.
Lovesong is another great hairstyle available for members of Lamb’s group. Did we mention Lamb’s group is free to join?
The Fondness bracelet from Osmia is just one of many free gifts to be found at Epiphany’s birthday round.
Need a fresh manicure? Livia is the shop for you! Whether you’re looking for classic subtlety or bling, it’s all here. These are only 2 of the 6 options to choose from in the Calla group gift. Calla includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Vista, and Omega.
Now, before you ask why we have gratuitous sexy pics thrown in let us point out that our model is wearing this fabulous thong under her skirt. The thong fits like a glove, and it easily fit under all the bottoms our model was thinking about blogging which could be why Kaithleen’s has called this the Universal Thong. It’s sized for most mesh bodies, including ebody curvy, comes with a 15 color HUD plus two metals.
C&S is today’s final stop. The Joy Sandals fit Maitreya and Slink, have 40 color options plus the ability to change the laces independently. Thanks C&S for this lovely summer gift!

Happy day! It’s a new week with new goodies. We even stumbled into a new to team All Spiffed Up store. So limber up your teleport fingers because it’s going to take a few hops to pull this look together.
First stop: Monomania – Clothing, Footwear & Fantasy Stuff. This cheery tropical dress is a group gift, sized to fit both classic and mesh avatars. Best of all, Monomania’s group is free to join!
Fans of long wavy hair are bound to love the White Rabbit Hair from Olive. This is another lucky board style that is currently available in-world. It comes with a color HUD and different meshes that support streaks, bewbies, and a rabbit ear headband.
Though tricky to view through all the hair, there are some lovely buckle and top stitching details plus a generous “Y” cutout to enhance the rear view.
Mesh head and body wearers can sport a summer tan with this fresh faced skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. The creators at 7 Deadly s[K]ins have a talent for capturing natural details like the dusting of freckles across the bridge of the nose and the clear glossy lips.
Visitors can find this skin in the gifts area behind the main counter. Simply join the free shopping group Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News and click the gift box under the group’s picture.
You’ll have to make 3 trips to round up today’s jewelry. The love gem and gold summer solstice cuff bracelet is a completely free, no group join required, gift at Chop Zuey’s main store.
Our model’s gorgeous pink beaded jewelry is from Chop Zuey’s beads & baubles set available at The Free Dove.
We love the Sail Blue nail appliers from Livia. This fabulous group gift comes with 5 different designs that can be applied to either the hands, feet, or both.

Mango Yacht Club & Marina if you’re looking to get away from this stifling summer heat try a trip to the sea. This sim has lots of nooks and crannies perfect for photo opportunities.
A funny thing happened in The Hamptons …we lost our model. At least we thought we did until the aroma of her unscheduled break caught our photographer’s attention. Luckily Gabe is a resourceful shutterbug and got a few fun candid shots.
This is the last weekend to pickup gifts at The Bliss Event. The official Bliss advert touts 63 gifts ranging from 0L – 10L. While there are a lot of “gifts” be advised that very few of them are actually 0L. That said, there are a few free gifts that are worth a teleport.
Team All Spiffed Up’s favorite Bliss freebie is the jean vest from FAFA. The detailed embroidery is simply great. Even better, the vest comes sized for both mesh and classic avatars, making it the perfect mix and match garment. Nina got the vest to work over her mesh top by wearing one of the standard sized vests over her body specific top. The combination worked like a charm.
The top, denim skirt, and heels are group gifts from No Cabide. No Cabide’s group is free to join, and chocked-full of wonderful gifts. There are even more gifts available for members of various different shopping groups. Bottom line: No Cabide is one of the most generous stores on the grid, and well worth visiting!
Today’s lovely long hair is a lucky board gift from Olive. Olive’s wall of lucky boards changes quickly and does not require group membership. It took Nina less than 5 minutes to collect two different hairstyles.
Red platforms with lots of studs and buckles, ooh la la, we love them! Believe it or not, these fabulous beauties are an added bonus, not the main attraction, in a boxed gift outfit at No Cabide. They are sized for mesh feet only (Slink, Maitreya, Belleza), and also come in black and white.
When Nina was putting today’s outfit together she almost missed these shoes completely. Luckily for us the style of the top boxed with these shoes caught her eye. She liked the top enough that she thought “hmmmm, wonder what the heels will look like?” Curiosity works for us Nina, thanks for the great finds!

Yes we are breaking out the show tunes, gorging on cake, and guzzling the bubbly. What can we say? Second Life’s 15th birthday celebration is making us wild. So wild in fact that it’s hard to pick a topic to start with.
When in doubt, start with what you know, and Team All Spiffed Up knows all about the Amazing Dreamz SL15B exhibit on the Incredible Sim. None other than our very own arniek Resident, aka ASU model Iona, created the Crystal Forest.
Iona scripted many of the larger soap bubbles with poses making the build a great place to take selfies. Don’t forget to experiment with your environment settings when looking for that perfect picture. The Crystal Forest has a completely different feel when viewed at midnight.
