Party Girl

Party Girl

Even though it’s not quite Friday, this girl is ready for a party! I want to dance, maybe have a drink or two, and spend time with my fantastic friends, and maybe even meet a few new ones. Is that too much to ask?! Well, either way, I got dressed up for the occasion anyway. I adore this dress from Ashmoot. The dress comes in several bright playful patterns and color combinations, this one just begged me to take it home! The good news is it only costs $69 lindens at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Every dress needs the right pair of shoes. I found these gorgeous bronze heels at the La Metallique Fair. They are from Essenz and are in a gacha for $75 lindens per play. Also at La Metallique Fair I stumbled over this striking bracelet from Alienbear. It is a free gift just for the event, and I really love the uniqueness, it’s a true statement piece! What’s that you say, you see a little sparkle in my cheeks and across my collarbone? No, it’s not the wine, it is however a little body glitter I picked up at La Petite Morte. With such a brightly patterned dress, and a stand-alone bracelet, just a little glitter was all I needed to feel complete!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Photo Challenge #12 – Love’s Version of FabFree Luau

Snapshot_001Good afternoon Fabulouses! Today I have group gift news and big sale news too ;)
First, I will start by telling you that The FabFree Photo Challenge Inspired me to try out this fabulous Tropical printed Ke Alaula Dress that can be found as a free SLF&O Gift at Entice.  This month’s theme is FabFree Luau and while I’m not in a grass skirt lol, I feel I am quite ready for luau ;)  The SLF&O inworld group is free to join, and once you join you can pick up two group gifts at Entice.  I am just showing you one, but the other is quite cute too, so snag them both while you are there!

The other thing I wanted to share with you today is a BIG RETIREMENT SALE AT BELLEZA… Yes, I totally yelled that!  YAY!  For a limited time you can find several skins at Belleza marked down as low as 100L.  I picked up a few that I liked including the Lily V2 skin I am wearing today.  Not only are they having a super sale, they also have male and female group gifts available for the taking!  Belleza is one of my favourite “naked” skins, because the body is so detailed.  Try a demo, and strip down (probably somewhere private, not actually IN the store lol)- you’ll see what I mean!
Snapshot_003The Belleza group gifts have probably been shown here on FabFree previously, several times… because well.. they are awesome, but I wanted to share them again in case it was new to someone!  Some of them are single skins, but others come with different skintones, eyebrow colours, options etc.  The group is 250L to join, but as you can see from the shots below – WORTH IT!

Can you salsa to bagpipes?

Hello again all you lovely FabFree readers :) I thought I would give you a wee bit of a break on the dots for this post. What I am not giving you a break on, is great freebies, as I have some I think you will love :)

salsa1

By now, you should all be familiar with B!ASTA, as I know we have shown many wonderful pieces of clothing from there. Well, Bomboloni Freschi, the owner and creator of B!ASTA, is branching out a little, with a new store called La Gazza Ladra {by B!ASTA}. To celebrate the opening of this new store, she has put out a super cute, mesh dress as a free group gift for B!ASTA group members! This beauty is called The Thieving Maggie, and actually, I really like the mash-up of a Scottish tartan texture mixed with a very Latin style dress. Tartan skirt ruffles…so much fun. I really wanted to get a latin type dance pose going for my picture, but alas, in my ever-growing selection of poses, I did not have one. Oh well, the dress didn’t really need it :) The B!ASTA group has a small L$50 fee to join, but this dress alone is worth the fee I think.

salsa2

The other freebie I have for you today is also a group gift, from Maxi Gossamer. These cute daisy printed bangles come in 2 sets, of 2 sizes, the large, which I have on my left wrist, and the small, which I have on my right. These are texture change, with 4 different textures, I’ve included the display picture for you to see all the choices. How nicely do they go with my dress? I love when things work out like that! The group is free to join, and once you do, just go into the notices and grab your bracelets. This is one group I hold on to for sure, you can never have too much jewelry.

MG - Bangles - Painted Daisies

I hope you all have a good night, and an even better day tomorrow…Hump day! Woot! Friday is within sight :) LOL. Until next time, TTFN!!

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

Almond (right) and blush (left)

It's cStar's birthday, but the presents are for YOU!_004

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

A Little Magika and a Lot of Accessories for Moi

Moi

Hi Everyone, here’s a fun Tuesday afternoon quickie for you! Recently I’d said that I was trying to get interested in jewelry more, well MoiMoi currently has the perfect opportunity for just that. Right now they are offering several jewelry sets absolutely FREE with your SLF&O group tag! The sets range from gorgeous gold cross earrings, to playful sets with themes like “London” and “Cotton Candy”. There are also a couple of cute clutches to be had. Since there were so many items at MoiMoi, I decided to keep it simple and just show you a few of them in my photos. Even if you don’t see something pictured that is specifically your taste, go to MoiMoi, take a look, I’m certain you’ll find something you love! Enjoying my new jewelry, I was excited to receive the latest Subscribo gift from Magika. This adorable headband is a FREE gift sent out late yesterday. The Magika headband is color change, and modifiable so it can be sized and tinted. Last but not least, one of the other Fab Free bloggers told me about this casual little outfit at Allusions. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I do like the “embroidered” details on the jeans. The jeans and tank-top combination are FREE at the Allusions main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Shh… Midday Blog Fix ;)

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! I’m totally sneaking online in the middle of my work day to get a little “blog fix”!  I wanted to show you a couple of stunning items at The Fantasy Gacha.  The Junbug machine is 50L per play and there are a few different prizes, all of which are just breathtaking.  My favourites of the bunch I played for were the Azure Nightflower Gown (rare) and the Ink Satin Bow (common) that I am wearing in my post today, although I quite like the vintage style Dayflower Dress too.  I may have to show off that one soon too! lol

Tortuga Princess

Tortuga Princess 2

I have to say I am very much enjoying this round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I’m spending way too many lindens, but enjoying it just the same! One of the things I really like is the fact that many of the vendors such as Aisling have set their gachas at just $50 lindens per play! Now you know what I’ve spent my lindens on, this incredibly detailed “Tortuga Princess” set from Aisling. Each piece is color-changeable, including commons, and has re-size scripts. I really do feel like a princess from some fabled island during a time of pirates and buried treasure! To go with my new highly detailed and colorful accessories, I picked up a pretty little set from Orsini Red. The top and matching bottom is fully mesh and they come in several standard sizes. The outfit also comes with gold bangles, which are not shown in my photos along with matching bow accents. The set from Orsini Red is a current Subscribo gift! I hope you enjoy my Tortuga Princess look as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Also, as a sweet little bonus, Aisling has set out a gift that includes 3 static poses, also at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A New Round of Cosmo Sales Room!

Snapshot_006Good evening Fabulouses! A new round of The Cosmo Sales Room has begun, which means new group gifts, and more awesome deals to be found!  In this round of The Cosmo Sales Room there are three group gifts, two for men, and one for women.  I am displaying the women’s group gift in the photo above.  Hilly Halaan was kind enough to sponsor her silver trimmed white Strapless Dress.  The CSR inworld group is free to join so it won’t sting a bit!  You can also find the Hollyhood Glam Heels (99L), {ZOZ} Natural Pink Rose Slink Polish Huds (90L), and the Damselfly Kandi Rigged Mesh Hair (70L per colour pack), so have a peek around the three sales rooms for some steals while you are snatching up group gifts!

I also wanted to mention this stunning Freya Necklace that can be found at The Fantasy Gacha priced at 50L per play.  The rare necklace piece is texture change to gold or silver and you can change the jewel colours too.  There are several co-ordinating pieces in both gold and silver to play for.
Snapshot_011One more little tidbit to share with you tonight!  If you are a blogger, photographer or designer you may be interested to know that  (*ANGELICA) has placed out a new gift that includes 6 really nice hand poses for mesh hands.  No need to join a group – it’s just priced at 0L :)

Combat Boots with Everything

Anarchy

I hope everyone had a Fabulously Fantastic weekend! I know I did! hehehe It’s a shame it has to be Monday, again. Didn’t we just go through this last week? :P At least we can take some time here and there to escape the Monday’s in Second Life and enjoy some shopping, or as I (and several others) like to call it, retail therapy!

Today I decided to go with a slightly different look, one I genuinely enjoy quite a bit. Have you ever known a girl who wore her combat boots with everything… seriously, everything, and yet somehow managed to make it look awesome?! Well this is that girl. These detailed mesh combat boots have been seen on Fab Free numerous times, but I love them, so I’m showing them again. Everyone should have a pair in their wardrobe. Since we started with the boots, I’ll move to the dress next. This funky printed mesh dress is really flattering on. I like the almost camouflage look to it, but more artful and sophisticated. The dress is by OVH and you can pick it up at The Dressing Room Fusion for just $5o lindens! In the past I’ve sort of ignored jewelry in Second Life. Now, I’m learning to love it. I managed to get this stunning necklace from Zibska at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The necklace also includes a set of matching earrings, and at just $50 lindens per play, the set is too pretty to not have it in your jewelry box! To go with my artsy dress and the beautiful jewelry, I needed my nails to make a statement also. I chose to go with a manicure from the Anarchy set at Nail Me! . This set is a $1 gift as part of the Anarchy hunt. The nail pallet has two unisex versions, both with some anarchy attitude! Like the poses I’m using? They are part of a great set called “Call me… Elf”  put out by Les Encantades Poses which can be had for $50 lindens for a limited time at The Countdown Room!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
