I’ve been so busy with my store, and yet….

A Honey Of A Freebie!

Snapshot_003

Fabfree Blog reader and active inworld group member, Honey Ryu sent me an IM the other day to let me know that J. Allen has some really cute gifts!  I took a trip down there and found that in the front window of their shop they have six really generous and well made clothing and accessory gifts for women.  There is no need to join a group – all six are simply priced at 0L. – Thanks for the hot tip Honey!

In the photo above I am wearing my favourite of the bunch, which is the Summertime Dress in Red, but below I have snapped a few quick shots to show you all of the gifts you can pick up.  There are a couple of gifts with colour options to!

Beautiful Music

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never to late to make beautiful music together. You can find this lovely, romantic pose at Positure Poses (piano is included). ♥

Blogging soon

While you’re at it, be sure you pick up these beautiful shoes. They’re the Valentine’s Day group gift from Gos Boutique. Gos shoes are always amazing, and these Carrie Pumps are no exception. The come with a stocking option with 5 colors, which I have turned on here in white. But – and here’s the catch – you ONLY have until the end of tomorrow, February 21st, to pick them up at the store. You’ll find them near the landing point by the stairs. (The group is currently 500L to join while the gift is out, but I believe it drops back down to around 50L when there is no gift.)

Blogging soon

This sexy negligee is the February gift from ~ghee~. This is a gift for EVERYONE, and no group join is needed – yay! These pretty bracelets are a group gift from Maxi Gossamer, and can be found in the notices. Gavin’s suit is the men’s New Year’s gift from Gizza Creations, and it includes the pants, shirt, and jacket. His shoes can be found in the 0L clearance area at *COCO* Designs. I’ll warn you… they were very small when he first put them on, so they might actually be women’s shoes. But I made them quite a bit larger using the resizer, and they look like they were made for him now. :-) Oh, and see that cute picture on the wall behind us? That’s a new dollarbie at floorplan. It comes with 3 “nerdy” romantic textures; this one says “Amin Mela Lle,” which is the Elven phrase for “I love you.” Don’t ask me why I know that. ;-)

Blogging soon

This gorgeous build is the Dion Skybox, which you can pick up as a free subscriber gift from Llorisen. It’s really a good size and weighs in at only 12 LI. I love the big picture windows. :-) I added a few furniture items so you could get an idea of the skybox’s size. The items are listed below, in case you like any of them.

This Little Piggy

Snapshot_002

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend :)  I have some super cute things to share with you tonight and I hope you like them enough to go pick them up, and check out what else these awesome stores have available too.

I stopped in at Ehr, originally to join their group and pick up the lovely dress they have in past notices (I’ll try to blog that one tomorrow!!), but got sidetracked by a couple more casual items that I wanted to show off tonight.  On the back wall at the Ehr shop you can find some 10L items for both ladies and men.  I picked up the Pig Shirt and Women’s Mesh Caprice Jeans for 10L a piece.

My fun Hipster Glasses with the adorable little ghost (comes in pink and blue) is available as a free group gift at Tabou Irresistible, along with a couple other items as well.  This group is 1L to join.

You can find my HeartKey Necklace made by Izzie’s at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion (TDRF).  You’ll receive long and short versions in three different metal colours for just 70L.  I couldn’t pass up a sweet necklace like this with MY name on it!

Snapshot_003

You can find this cute pastel Bubble Ring at Leonard as a group gift (80L to join), and my sparkling Haze Eyes are available as a freebie in the Brixley (formerly Crash Republic) store or in the Brixley Subscribomatic.

WoW Skins has recently moved their store and has placed out a very limited time offer of a free skin!  The Charlotte Moving Gift includes the skin shown today as well as a Smokey Eyeshadow makeup layer (worn today), eyebrow shaper, cleavage option, and appliers for hands, feet, Tango and Phat Azz.  This is a free gift for everyone – no need to be a group member.

Caresia’s Photo Challenge Entry #3 – Then and Now

BlogPost_143A

Well, in reviewing my pictures from over the years I came to the happy conclusion that the longer you spend in SL, the better you look.  At least to yourself.  I started Second Life 6 years ago on my first avatar and I was going to use the picture from my very first day…. and then I decided I would just show you Care’s first day 3 1/2 years ago and what she looks like today.

BlogPost_143B

May I say that Second Life is ahead of its time…  *laughs*  I can’t wait to see everyone’s Then and Now pictures.

Found a few freebies to show you … I love this dress that Dressed By Lexi is giving away as their January Group Gift.  I got my earrings from D.D.M. DESIGNS and my Apple May Designs bow off the Marketplace.  I also ran over to The Dressing Room Fusion and found my Al Vulo skin and M I N A  hair. I also hit up the KUSTOM9 event and picked up a pose pack as well as their beautiful S0NG eyes. Check out all the Credits and Links below <3

Urban Casual

Snapshot_006

Need some mesh casual baggies?  Today is the last day to  pick up these swaggy denims at Apple May Designs for the low price of 25L.  I had meant to show them to you sooner, but have just been swamped!  I hope you are able to grab them before they are gone if interested :)

As Tiana mentioned earlier, there is another sweet round of TDRF (The Dressing Room Fusion) and I did a little shopping myself!  I picked up the [glow] Studio Bird Necklace (Raven) for 70L.  I think this will be a fun necklace to put with so many different styles.

Snapshot_008

Have you heard the latest Mirror’s Enigma news?  They are rebranding to Morphine, and have released two new skins recently (Julianna and Kazumi).  The skin I am wearing in todays post is Kazumi Smoky in the Native skin tone.  It includes the skin shown with cleavage options, Lush, Lola and Phat Azz Appliers as well as the three lipstick tattoos shown below.  The group does not have a fee to join, but you will need to make a purchase in the store to be auto sent an invite.  If you are already a member, fantastic – just go activate your group tag and smack the sign!
