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!

Izzie’s, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Greetings!

It’s one of those days where I just want to cozy up in a comfy chair and bury my nose in a great book.  So today I rummaged around my inventory and found all sorts of treasures from my latest shopping excursions.  My Izzie’s Belted Dress is a combination of mesh and non-mesh pieces and the belt has a color change option in the HUD.  This dress came in one of two clearance boxes, FILLED with all sorts of Izzie’s goodies, for only 10L each!  I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is in those boxes!  I see poses, clothing, hand bags, satchels, jewelry and Holiday items…the list goes on and on and only 10L for the whole shebang!  Make sure you pick up both boxes, located in the foyer at the entrance, because they both have different items in them…what treasures to be found!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!My gorgeous Touch of Stone Jewelry set is only one of several FREE jewelry items from Lazuri!  You’ll find some of the FREE (no group required) Lazuri jewelry items at the Main Store on the first floor near the group gifts (250L group join) and more on the second floor!  This Touch of Stone set comes with two different types of Fuschia stone options and metal change options! My absolutely adorable Baby Black Kite is a FREE gift from 8f8 and comes with an option to have it static on your shoulder, rotating around you or rezzed and rotating.

My stunning skin, Hanako T2 Aka,  was a gift from the skin artist behind Adam n Eve (AE), Sachi Vixen.  One of the things I have always loved about AE skins is that  Sachi details each skin from top to bottom by hand…speaking of which…her skins are known for having the best “bottom” in SL! Her skins are truly a work of art…NO templates here…100% original.

The particular skin gifted to me  came with delicious ruby red lips but I opted to use a Light Peachy Lipgloss from Esk-Imo.  The lip gloss is an old gift and no longer available…but you will find FREE eyeliner at the landing point and reasonably priced (150L and under) makeup tattoos in the makeup room. I topped the lipgloss off with Izzie’s Glossy Lips Highlights, from the Marketplace,…NOT free (149L) but ohhhhhhhhhh so worth it…what a difference it makes to the lips!  Yum!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!Love sent me these fabulous Athens (Pink) gacha shoes, from Essenz…she knows I ADORE all things pink!  These shoes are available as a gacha item (75L per play) at the The Comic Fair.  Thank you Love!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

What would a trip to a bookstore be without this cute little [POSH] Book Purse (Alice in Wonderland )for only 10L, from [POSH], on the Marketplace!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Once I had my outfit all sorted out, I headed for a cozy little place called the Novel Cafe.  I found this sweet bookstore/cafe as a result of a wonderful conversation with one of our amazing FabFree readers…Macey.  Macey is the creator behind this charming little bookstore/cafe and has done a lovely job at making a comfy place to curl up with a good book and a latte.  Be sure to venture out beyond the Bookstore/Cafe…there are other things to also discover and explore there!  Thank you for the tour and the fabulous conversation Macey…it was a pleasure to meet you! <3

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! <3 <3

Art~Paris METRO & Elysium

Good Morning!

I hope you all took advantage of the fabulous offerings, around the grid, for St. Patrick’s Day.  I finished off the day with a visit to the Paris Metro Art Gallery …where Love suggested I would find a wonderful exhibit AND a free outfit from Paris Metro Couture.

The exhibit, featuring the work of Indea Vaher, highlights the life of African American women from a fictional barrier island; off the coast of the USA.  Vaher is an artist in First Life and her work, focusing on African American southern culture, has been internationally recognized.  The Paris METRO Vaher Dress brilliantly reflects the vibrant colors of Indea’s art pieces, and it is FREE to anyone; you will find it in a vendor right at the landing point.  It comes with a matching hat (not worn).
Art~Paris METRO & Elysium
I styled the outfit with a gorgeous Jah versace Headwrap from L&H Couture and a Mesh Necklace 02, from .:ECCO:. FREE (no group join required).
Art~Paris METRO & Elysium
This stunning Africa skin is also a FREE item from Elysium…which also generously comes with hand/feet/phat azz/Lola appliers and shape (worn).  The skin comes with an Africa jewelry set and is part of the MEGAstuff Hunt, brought to you by WOMENstuff and MENstuff…just look for the little red tshirt to receive your FREE items.  I’ve embedded a link for the MEGAstuff Hunt page so you can check out the starting point and any other info you might need to do this Hunt.

Stop by the Indea Vaher Art Exhibit, check out her amazing work and don’t forget your FREE outfit from Paris METRO Couture…then hop on over to Elysium and Ecco for more free goodies!

Happy shopping!

A PurpleMoon on St. Patty’s Day!

I’m baaaaaaaaaack!

It feels fantastic to be joining the Fab Free team again and, for my first post, I just couldn’t resist showing you this amazing group gift gown from :: PM:: PurpleMoon Creations !!
:: PM :: Patty Gown Group Gift
I LOVE this :: PM :: Patty Gown in white/green!  It is a mesh sheath dress with a wonderful flexi skirt overlay…full of shamrocks.  You can also opt not to wear the flexi skirt…the sheath looks lovely all by itself and also sports the shamrocks on the hem.  The gown also comes with a sweet shamrock hair piece…I chose not to wear. The PurpleMoon Group is 50L to join and well worth it…Poulet is VERY generous with her group members.  I have accessorized the dress with the stunning Esme necklace and earrings from LAZURI…both items are previous group gifts.  The LAZURI group is 250L to join but it is also another group definitely worth joining…the group gifts are generous, frequent and you will find previous group gifts still available at the main store…not to mention there are gifts available for non-members also!
:: PM :: Patty Gown Group Gift
My adorable shamrock nail appliers are available on the Marketplace for only 1L from DiAna Homemade Creations.  A perfect finishing touch for my night out on St. Patrick’s Day!

Enjoy your St. Patty’s Day <3 <3

More Hidden Cherries

Snapshot_001

Hey Fabulouses!  Remember the other day when I mentioned a few prizes from The Cherries on Top Hunt at PurpleMoon Creations, Lazuri and Wetcat?  Here is my previous post for reference.

I am back today with a few more prizes from this great, free hunt!   I am displaying the Luisana Dress in a gorgeous pink and black floral print which is #14 in the hunt. While I enjoy the classy floral front of this dress, I love the sexy diagonal cut skirt from the back that allows for showing a little more leg.  Put this dress on and you’ll have leg men following you around for pixel miles!

You can find the Regal Desires necklace, bracelets (and also a pair of matching earrings – not shown here today) hidden around the Lazuri store in red cherry hunt icons!

The Love Hamster

Blogging Soon

Look who I found wandering around the garden: the Love Hamster! ;-) Ok, I know Valentine’s Day is over, but I just couldn’t resist showing you this little cutie, a Valentine’s VIP group gift from BIRDY. He comes with a HUD so you can change the sentiment on his heart (mine says “XOXO”). Both my dress and eyes are group gifts from Avi-Glam, and my jewelry is a group gift from Lazuri. The jewelry is also HUD-driven, with 6 metals, 10 heart gems, and 10 small gems.

Wake me up in spring

Wake me up in Spring

Skin: Glam Affair – Elvi (New!)
Hair: Chemistry – Tamora
Jewelry: Lazuri – Fall romance (Group gift)
Antlers: Alirium – Antlers (Group gift)
Butterflies: Alirium – Butterfly (Group gift)

Yesterday, I moved out of my Skydome which served as my first SLhome for the past 3 months and while I was looking for plants to landscape my new place with, I noticed Alirium had a couple of group gifts out! I can’t believe I never noticed them before since Alirium has been around for as long as I can remember and I often visit to take photos! Join the group for free to get hold of these static butterflies in many colours (great to wear or for home decor and fully moddable) as well as these amazing tree-inspired antlers. They come a lot larger than in the photo but I had to scale them down using the resizers inside them so they’d fit into the frame! I think they’d look fantastic with fantasy or RP outfits for Fairies, Elves, Dryads or Satyrs!

The gorgeous jewelry I’m wearing is the new group gift from Lazuri and it is a doozy! You get earrings, bracelets and necklaces all with wide colour-change options (you can even colour the pearls independently!) so you can rest easy knowing you look sublime in any outfit. The catch is though, that the Lazuri group is no longer free to join, so if you’re already a member of the Lazuri group then don’t leave as it will cost you 250L$ to get back in! 250L$ for a group might seem a little steep to some of you but I assure you it’s totally worth it (I always wondered why they weren’t charging group fees for such wonderful gifts back when it was free!) but not only do you get access to the gorgeous (and frequent) gifts, you can also make the most of group-only discounts on new releases! All of Lazuri’s pieces are very beautiful and professional looking, extremely well made and almost always come with a wide variety of colour options.
