Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

Exposing My Weakness!

Snapshot_005 Confession:  I may be selling a ton of my gacha extras at The Fabulous Yard Sale…  but I may be buying the other girl’s stuff  with my earnings *blush*

Today I am wearing the pastel retro Maelle Dress by Luziefee that you can pick up as a free subscribe gift by subscribing and checking the history for #2.  If you are already a subscriber, simply check the history if you missed the send out the other day.  This says it is a group gift for June, which makes me think there might be a gift for July soon too!  Keep your eyes peeled!

Essenz is offering their Cancun (mid feet slink add-ons) shoes at this round of Designer’s Showcase for 100L in a variety of colours.

ps.  The tables at The Fabulous Yard Sale were getting a little bare, but we have replenished them and they are overflowing once again with some great gacha steals – everything is 10-50L!

Watching The Tide Roll Away

Its Monday again FabFree-ers! The start of a new week and soon the start of a new Month! Where did June go? Its flying past!

Firstly, I am wearing the Group Gift by Pr!tty that I previously blogged yesterday. It seems that the group gift joiner in the mainstore isnt working, which is probably because the store is unfinished yet.. but I want you to all know that you can still join the group for free and get the gift simply by finding the group in my profile and opening it through there, or by copy and pasting the following group info into chat and clicking the highlighted text that appears to open the group join window:

secondlife:///app/group/b23b775b-c35b-7464-cdd7-026987d42963/about

Ok now on to the rest of the goodies I have to show you. BN Designs have this beautiful tropical dress as their new group gift. The group is free to join! I think it goes really well with the Uva jewelry set from Miel that you can find in their subscriber when you join. This set has been blogged quite often before since Love originally blogged about it, but its always good to refresh an old find for anyone who might not know about it.

Somnia have a new group gift of some very pretty simple French manicure nails for SLink hands and feet. The group is free to join and you can find them in the group notices! Hooray! Im wearing the Mauve colour in the pictures.

If you like the skin that I am wearing, then you will be happy to know that as of tomorrow (1st July) you will be able to try your luck at getting it from the Gacha’s at the Sex Sells Gacha Festival that runs until 15th July. This is one of 22 skins by Lumae that you can attempt at winning in their two gachas at the event!

Taking a break, laughing at my own jokes.

MissLTHeydra_001

So, I decided to take a little break from Summer Fashion Festival posts, and show you what I have been wandering around SL in, and as a matter of fact, I showed little glimpses of a few of these items in my last post HERE, so I figured I might as well show them outright for you all :)

PicMonkey Collage2

It all started with a trip to The Cosmo Sales Room that started its new round this past Monday. I saw the Alyce Skinny Pants – Fatpack, and my jaw dropped. A HUD with 20 different colours/textures to choose from to fit any mood, of which I have chosen a few to show you, and for only L$70, now that’s a great deal in my eyes. Now, I will warn you, the sign says they are rigged mesh in the 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, but when I opened my box, it turns out you get 2 pairs of fitmesh pants. One that fits sizes XXS-L, and another in an XL size. I do have my shape in sizes XXS-L, so I tried each size out, the standard L would need a little adjusting, but other than that, the other sizes fit great. I don’t have an XL shape, so I did not get to try that one out. These pants are also materials enabled, and the effect is awesome! I don’t want to take them off, really.

MissLTHeydra_003

The next piece to my outfit puzzle came from a tip from a good friend. She sent me a link to a Facebook post about a hidden gift from Heydra.  The Emily Tank Top is hidden in a purple skull and crossbones, somewhere in the store. As blue is a favourite colour of mine, I couldn’t resist. I lucked out and found that baby in under a minute. Many years of doing hunts here in SL has paid off I think ;) This gift is free, but if you really like it, there are many other colours available in store for only L$69 each, so still a great deal.

MissLTHeydra_002

The same lovely friend who told me about the Heydra gift is also how I got ahold of this gorgeous chunky necklace, and corresponding bracelet and earrings. She saw the  Mel  Necklace at ::Poised::, and thought of me, so much so that she bought it for me. Well, she was right, I love it, and I would have easily parted with the L$50 this lovely necklace costs, no question. To get the matching earrings, bracelet, ring (not shown) and bellychain (not shown), you have to buy them separate from the necklace, for L$75 for the group, but they make such a great addition to my jewelry staples collection, I’m sure you will see them on me again.

PicMonkey Collage

The colourful manicure I am sporting, with the matching pedicure, is the June subscribo gift from Bella Elephante. The Popsicle SLink nail HUD’s are free, all you have to do is slap the subscribo board in store, and it will be sent to you. I’ve included a shot of the HUD so you can see all the delicious colours available, I can see why it’s titled popsicle, makes me want a Rocket. Remember those? Yum!

MissLTHeydra_010

As I like to end on a high note…Miss LT just put out a new group gift, for SLink High feet. Gosh..sometimes I just kill myself *giggles*. Anyways…the shoes, focus Calle…the Miss LT Nanda mesh platform for SLINK HIGH FEET are texture change, the heels and straps can be changed independently, with 14 colours to choose from. Again, you can match whatever mood you are in. I wanted bright, so the lime green was perfect! The shoes are free with your group tag activated, and the group is free to join. I know all you shoes lovers need these, so go get them!

OK, I think I covered all the goodies I’m wearing. I hope you like them as much as I do. I guess I better get back to the Summer Fashion Festival post 3 I am working on. Until next time, TTFN!!

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. :-( But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! :-) My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

Wicked Peach Advert Wicked Gift

Blogging soon!

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we're CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! :-D

Anchors Away

Hello everyone! Its a beautiful day outside.. the perfect weather to go down to the beach and laze around in the sands. Of course we have to look fabulous while doing so and this outfit certainly fits the bill!

After hearing of a new group gift from CandyMetal to celebrate their reopening, I was on the look out for a suitable pair of heels to match up. When as if by magic or some divine intervention, a notice fell from the heavens to say that Hucci had sent out a gorgeous new subscriber gift of a pair of Peep Toe Heels. Thanking my lucky stars I high tailed it over there to get them and by the good graces they matched my outfit!

All I needed was some accessories to help complete the outfit and I knew exactly where to go! Yummy has some cute little sailor themed jewellery and accessories for this round of Collabor88 and these were just ideal to add the finishing touches.
