Any Given Sundae

Any Given Sundae 1

Hello Again, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! In a previous post I mentioned how I’m kinda over this summer heat. Well, there is one thing I very much enjoy that is generally associated with hot weather, ice cream! One of my favorite ways to cool off on a hot day is with a little ice cream. This outfit very much makes me think of strawberry ice cream, which is a personal favorite of mine!

It all started with this over-sized shirt from Cheeky. The top is their July group gift, so just a few days left to grab it up! It is fully mesh and comes with the sunglasses that hang casually from the neck-line. I thought it was perfect for a lazy afternoon. Lucky for me, and for everyone else, I came across a slew of pretty pink gifts to go with my new shirt. The toe-less leggings are a store gift from Flair, there are 3 separate colors in the pack, and they include appliers for Slink Physique along with regular clothing layers. How cute are these knee pads from Skull Designs? Another group gift I could not resist! It’s an addiction for certain. hehehe These knee pads are also mesh, and they are completely free, just wear the group tag! As if things could not get any sweeter, I found the perfect pair of shoes waiting for me in the past notices for HollyHood! Over all, I think it’s a fun casual look, perfect for a lazy day cooling off with some ice cream.

Here are the detail, Enjoy!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400′s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.


 

What is Calle showing you…

Modern Punk

Modern Punk

Hello Fab Free Lovies! I hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend. :D Sometimes I really think that my sense of style has multiple personalities! The good news is, somehow, I think I manage to pull it off anyway! :P I”m really not sure what you would call this style, I’d lean toward a mixture between high fashion, goth, and punk. Whatever you want to call it, I think it’s really flirty and fun, with a touch of sinister!

So how’d I get find myself in such an outfit you ask? First, I think you have to be inspired. While out and about I stumbled across some group gifts at a shop called Chary. There is a very rebellious exciting vibe to that store. I think maybe that was my initial inspiration. At Chary I picked up these playful “valentine” tights, shown in black/red. I also picked up the face paint, which I think gives the look an almost post-apocalyptic/urban street feel. The face paint gift comes with 3 variations.  An image of what I wanted starting to form in my mind, I used the Marketplace to hunt down this mesh top from Nuclear Bambi. Then of course, I went to Nail Me! and got my nails done with their current SLF&O group gift, Deco Stripes. One thing I really enjoy about this outfit is how the silhouette of the shirt kinda mimics that of the skirt. Cute, and a little bit flared, I picked up this skirt at the most recent round of My Attic. And there you have it. Modern Punk.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – July “O’Canada”

I have to admit, it took me quite awhile to come up with my submission for the Monthly Photo Challenge, especially as I had already done a post to celebrate Canada Day at the beginning of the month, wearing my country’s colours. Oh sure, I could have submitted one of those pictures, but I wanted to do some pictures specifically for the challenge. So here it is.

PhotoChallengeJuly1

So, this oh-so-sexy halter dress was a find on the Marketplace! I typed in ‘red white dress’, LOL, and this was one of the many items that popped up. The Furry Circle Halter Dress is from LA VITA, and is a great buy at only L$1. It is mesh, coming in 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, and it fits like a dream. There is an in-world store HERE if you like the more hands on approach of shopping, and the Halter Dress is still, only L$1 there as well.

PhotoChallengeJuly2

Sunglasses were a must, in this sunny coastal setting,  and the [ bubble ] Star Me Up White Glasses fit the bill perfectly. These adorable sunglasses are available right now, in a gacha at the Candy Shop event, and are only L$50 a play. Each pair comes with a HUD that allows you change the colour of the lenses, and there is a chance at winning the full fatpack. I’ve included a photo of the board so you can see all the colours you have a chance at winning.

Heart Glasses Gacha AD

PhotoChallengeJuly3

Elephante poses recently released a second July group gift, free for their VIP group members, which is a set of 6 static poses called Ember. There is a L$300 join fee for this group, but if you are a pose junky, like I am, then it is more than worth it As I said, this is the second July group gift released, and the first is still available as well, and you also get a 15% credit with every purchase made in store with your group tag on. If you do not have the group space, don’t fret, there is a subscribo available, which also has a little giftie available for July.  So either way, you win!

OK lovelies, that is it for me, for now…but I have more I want to show you, so, until then, TTFN!!

I <3 Lingerie

Blacklace

Yes, I’m back, and with more lingerie! I couldn’t help myself, when I saw this pretty black lace set, I had to show it. I’m a sucker for these baby-doll style tops. I think they give a little sweetness to a very sexy look. This specific set is a new group gift from Blacklace. Feelin’ a little bit punk-rock today I decided to forgo the usual stilettos with my lingerie and go with some super edgy boots instead. These “pony” style boots are a statement all on their own. The best part is, you can snag them for free with a group tag and a slap to the group only Midnight Mania board at Aparecium.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Just a Delicate Peach

Delicate Peach

Okay, I admit it, I do get some secret delight out of pairing these fierce, sexy gladiator shoes with a sweetly simple dress! I’m not sure what you would call this style, but I really like it. :) The moment I saw these shoes from Whatever, I knew they had to be mine. These pastel-peachy colored knee-high gladiator style heels are fully mesh and have awesome detail. Whatever VIP Group members can pick them up for free at the main store along with several other gifts. The sweet-looking dress I picked out to go with the gladiator shoes is a July gift from SkullCandy on the Marketplace. The pretty pastel peach of the dress is the perfect match for the shoes. Also, for what I am certain is a limited time, WoW Skins has this gorgeous skin “Lisa” in tan for just $10 lindens! I really hope you like my little demon lolita look! :D Oh! One more quick note, my manicure and pedicure are from Nail Me!.  They are the 100 group members gift which was sent out in a group notice again recently. This 100 Butterflies gift will be retired soon, so if you don’t have it yet, get it!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind

The weekend is winding down for me on this Sunday evening, so I thought I would show you a few amazing things to help ease you into a new week.

If you haven’t been to The Hair Fair yet then now is the time as it is much less crowded now the initial rush is over. Exile put their dollarbie gift out last night, which is a reason in itself to go over as this hair is just breathtaking. They have made a special pack of four colours expecially as their dollarbie for this event and the ends of the hair is a sparkling rainbow ombre! I may never take this hair off as I am so smitten with it! Plus it perfectly matches the adorable Unicorn Clutch that I found when taking a wander over to The Dreamers Factory event. If you join the event group for free, you can claim the little swag bag of gifts nearby which contains this clutch bag and two sweet necklaces that I will show in a future post!

Soooo.. about this gorgeous hair ~ laughs ~ I know, I know.. Im going to be obsessed about it for a while. But as Im back on the subject, here is a picture of the three other colours in the package.

Exile Hair Fair

Ok, I promise I will talk about the other things now! IKON have a new Group Gift for July with the release of their Immortal Eyes range. Their gift is a set from this range in a striking green colour. These eyes are perfect for that otherworldly feel and I can imagine I will be using them a lot in the future! The IKON group is free to join!

As you may have noticed from my other posts, I have quite a love for flowery head bands and crowns, so I was thrilled when I stopped by The Secret Affair event. The theme for this event is Medieval Masquerade with a hint of A Midsummer Nights Dream and there are so many beautiful things to swoon over. The Rose String Crown that I am wearing in the picture is one of the rare prizes from the ieQED gacha but there are several different styles to play for!

The beautiful and romantic Mrs Darcy gown in Floral by Junbug is out for today only at a very very special price and this is just gorgeous. I love every single thing about it! Although it is a one piece with the coat and dress together, the coat is also included seperately in the package which is a wonderful addition.

It is available in all of the 8 tones that and can be found at Genre which is dedicating its whole event to the Baroque and Rococo theme with all items L$100 or less. I adore the flushed cheeks and the little heart on the cheek so I couldnt resist showing it to you.

Some Day My Prince Will Come

Hello dear readers, here are some beautiful freebies and discounted creations that are sure to enchant and delight you on this Friday.

Firstly, the Rainbow Dress is the new group gift from !Soul and it is just beautiful. I adore rainbows and so I had to have this as soon as I saw the notice for it. There are Lola appliers included in with the dress too! The group is currently at the time of writing this free to join and there are a few other gifts to collect also! As I was looking for something to wear with it, I recieved another notice from Glow Studios to say they had set a new group gift out too! The Simple Necklaces are so cute and I thought suited the look perfectly. You get a set of three in different colours. The group is L$50 to join but there are regular gifts!

Of course, today being Friday, it is time for Fifty Linden Friday! I was thrilled to see that Glam Affair were taking part with their gorgeous Cassia skin in two beautiful tones. In these pictures I am wearing the America tone, but there is a much paler tone called Arctic available in the package also! The shoes are the Fifty Linden offering from Fri.day and are the perfect summer sandal. You will need SLink Medium Feet to wear these.

Isn’t this hair just precious! It is one of the brand new designs made by Ohmai that you can find at The Hair Fair! While you are there, don’t forget to pick up their adorable gifts that Love showed in this post here!

…and not a drop of blood on me anywhere!

Have any of you Fabulous readers ever looked at the Destinations Guide on the SL website? It has soo many different places listed for you to go and explore, and I am always on the lookout for a new to me sim for pictures. This time, I ended up at The Cornfield, and wow, I was not prepared for it at all, but more about that at the end of my post. What I am really here for, is to tell you about some of the pieces of my outfit I put together for my monster bashing escapade. Yes, I said monster bashing :P

TheCornfield1

The other night, one of our own FabFree designers, [free bird], put out a notice in the FabFree group about a time-sensitive, new group gift thingy they are doing, and thingy is totally the technical term I am going for. They are calling it the [free bird] free-for-all give away. The first item to try out this new system is this beautifully embroidered, flowey, mesh Sunday Tank Top. Now, I’ll explain how this works. You join the [free bird] group, which is free to join, and then you find the poster of the tops and click on it, you will be given one random colour, out of 5, for free! It’s like a free gacha, the catch is, you only get 1 per person, but like other gacha’s, the tops are transferable. So if you and a friend go, and each get a colour that the other wanted, you can swap! Or, as I did , you can join the group with an alt, and transfer as needed (of course, I only did this purely because I wanted to show you all a couple of the colours…really, LOL) As I said, this is a limited time offer, only good until July 21st, and then they will no longer be free, so don’t miss out!

TheCornfieldCollage1

I also wanted to show off this cute SLink nail applier set I lucked out in finding for free on the Marketplace! The Shady Ladies- Sailor Jerry SLink Nails are a summer freebie exclusive, and come in a handy single HUD format that will change both your fingernails and toenails at the same time. I just love the classic sailor tattoo theme of these nails. I’ve included a shot of the HUD so you can see the other textures you have as a choice.

TheCornfieldCollage3

OK, let’s get back to the monsters, shall we? If you are bored and are all shopped out one night, head over to The Cornfield, you won’t stay bored for long. Head to the back of the barn, and enter the portal there, you will be asked to give permissions of your av, agree to it, because once you land in the main barn, you will find that you now have a few new accessories. The lovely nailed board I am holding, and the cute basket on my back will both be attached to you, as well, there will be a HUD on your screen. The goal is to run around the cornfield picking up corn and corn bucks, which you can then use to buy yourself stuff in the main shop, including upgrades in weapons as well as armor. The catch…. the field is full of monsters, I have provided a few examples below. Really, it’s a lot of fun! Make sure you read the notecards you are given, and invite a bunch of friends, I had a blast. Bashing monsters is a great way to get rid of any stress you may have :)

TheCornfieldCollage2

I have to say, I did pretty good. I only died once (don’t worry, it was pretty painless), and I did not get any blood on my shirt! That is a bashing well done :) Until next time, TTFN *waves her board high in the air*
