Rainy Day Sales!

Snapshot_002I love Fridays off work ;) Gives me a chance to play some catch up! I have another post for you today, this time with some time sensitive sale items that you can find around the grid (and a little gift too).

For the Secret Wednesday Sale event, LIV-Glam has this adorable Honey & I Outfit on sale for just 99L.  For this low price, you receive the shorts, bra and top in three different colours each and the mesh  floral printed jacket (the jacket comes with a texture change hud too!).  I know we usually show items that are under 75L, and preferably free lol, but this set as so many pieces in it with mix and match possibilities that I had to share!

These Coral Earrings are from Pure Poison and are a free group gift (still free to join!).  While you are at Pure Poison, make sure you have a look at their Fifty Linden Friday offering!  The Lisa Slink Add-on Sandals are a huge steal at just 50L – today only!

Guest Blog by Chiana Oh

A Guest Blog by ChianaO, originally blogged on Cheep & ChiChi!

Spaaace

What’s your favourite thing about space?

Mine is space the futuristic fashion ;)

Spaaace Close-up

The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own. These detailed original meshes are designed to be worn as attachments but I thought it would be fun to rez them for this post; I resized ‘My Home,’ (taking care to make a note of its original dimensions so I could return it back to its intended state once I was done) and I love the results!

Of course, setting up a space-themed post meant I got to shop for lots more cool stuff (not that I ever really need much of an excuse.) I stumbled across Nylon Popstar‘s leotards a little while ago and I knew they would be the perfect starting point for my outfit – there are 9 colours to choose from, each including 2 transparancy options, multiple layers and Phat Azz and Lolas appliers for only L$50 a pack. Hopefully the pictures speak for the amazing quality of the texture itself – it really is that shiny!

A search for space-y items on Marketplace returned these funky boots by Killer Cerise and I just had to have them: the style and texture is just so cute! I resized them slightly and used the alpha for my Slink feet rather than the one included as my legs are pretty small.. but that is the beauty of modifiable items, with just a little tinkering you can have them fit pretty much any shape you choose to be.

I found Olli Braveheart‘s hair store, LCKY, thanks to a fellow blogger and I’m now a big fan: the styles there are really something special and the colours in the packs are some of the loveliest I’ve seen. The one I’m wearing here is an older style which fitted perfectly under Dolce Blackflag‘s fab helmet – there are currently 15 discounted styles out in store sold in colour packs costing only L$50 each.

I’ve layered quite a lot of eye makeup for an ‘out of this world effect’ but the skin itself is a lovely dollarbie from the ever-fabulous MiaSnow (back in-world again, yay!): its lips were already a perfect match for my chosen outfit.

I hope you enjoy this look at least a little as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Until next time,

<3

The Dressing Room Fusion – Round 29 (From Jan 3rd)

Since the new changes to the blog and the raising of the upper level price of things we can show you to L$75, we have been aiming to include more of the discounted items around the grid and that you can find in events such as The Dressing Room Fusion!

There is a new round starting today so I thought I would pop along to take a look. Usually I end up incorporating a few bits here and there throughout my posts to show you some of the items that are available.. but this time around I thought I focus on the event itself and create a few looks from some the creations you can find there.

I’ve peppered in some other items from around the grid so I could pull together some complete looks.

PS :~ TDRF after each item means it was bought from The Dressing Room Fusion

Kitties & Stuff ;)

Snapshot_002

Howdy Fabulouses ;)  Just popping by with some fabulous news for you in the way of gifts, and great deals too.  I have so much to tell you about, I have no idea where to start…  Probably with the cat!  Serena and I have been bringing you coverage of the Peace on Earth Hunt, and when we were going through the prizes, Serena said I simply must show the cat, because her dogs would just go crazy if she added a cat into the mix.  I tried to tell her, that her dogs were already crazy causing trouble all over SL ( I have pictures to prove it!), but what the heck…  I like kitties, and fortunately for me, I don’t have to feed this one so it won’t end up stuck in a bed with a thermometer in it’s mouth like the rest of my kitties :/ *sighs*.  Anyways, enough of my babbling!  You can find this Peace Angel 2013 wearable kitty at KittyCats for the Peace on Earth Hunt.

The My Signature Move mesh outfit that includes the skirt and jacket shown today is available at LIV-Glam for just 60L.  It comes in the form of their fancypants HUD system that allows for three colour changes, so you can mix and match up the prints and colours on a whim!

Snapshot_003

I am wearing the Glam Affair Gemma skin which you can pick up at the The Arcade Gacha this month for 100L per try (previously shown by Caresia in her post, here), but I am also wearing the Nox. Silent Night Shadow that I found just outside the Atooly Mainstore priced at 0L.  There are actually a huge amount of free gifts and hot deals, so be sure to check it out.

Don’t forget to take a trip down to JCNY, as they have plenty of gifts under the tree for everyone.  I picked up the Celtic Trinity Good Luck Diamond Earrings that I have on today, and many more very pretty items.

umeboshi

UMEBOSHI is where you will find the new four pack of Shimmer Eyes that was jut placed out as a free group gift for inworld members.  (free to join).

The Caroline’s Kitty Slink Nail Appliers I am wearing today, are currently available in the KittyCats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was in lol.  You’ll want to smack all those little advent doors anyways as they are all filled with wonderful gifts!   I am showing you their vendor photo below so you can see all of the choices in the hud.

Caroline's Kitty Nail Polish Ad

Whew…  And last but not least…  The poses that were used in this post came in a Forgetful 3PK, and are available in the Elephante Advent Calendar today only.

May You Have Peace In Your Mind And Love In Your Heart

Snapshot_001
May you have peace in your mind and love in your heart.

I am in love with this awesome Peace on Earth Sweater that can be found at Legal Insanity for The Peace On Earth Hunt for FREE!  It makes such a huge statement and it is available in both male and female versions.  I matched up this top with a pair of Eibo Trousers in Grey that I picked up in the Kyoot Marketplace store  for 55L, but you could wear it with a skirt or even a pair of denim shorts & leggings.

While I have you sitting here with me, I also wanted to say…  On behalf of the FabFree blogging team, I would like to express my sheer gratitude to those responsible for FabFree being nominated in the SL Avi’s Choice Awards “Favorite SL Blog/Blogger” category!  We are beyond honoured to be mentioned amongst a group of such well received blogs and bloggers.  If you have a few minutes – make sure you head to the SL Avi’s Choice Awards website and vote for your favourites… If your favourite blog happens to be Fabulously Free in SL, we greatly appreciate your vote…  but no pressure –  Just sayin ;)

Hi everyone! I have some great free skins to show you today. All 5 of these skins are absolutely free from Ryuukou, no group join necessary! Just waltz in and buy them for 0L$! All of the skins come with various eyebrow shapes and tattoo layers for freckles and beauty marks. A couple have cleavage/no cleavage options and teeth tattoo layers as well!

System Failure Halloween Game Part 1

If you love the survival horror genre of console games then this will be right up your dimly lit, zombie strewn street. Snatch and friends have created a very special interactive game that will run until the 17th of November. Please be aware that this is very gorey and is not for the squeamish. I have a high squeam factor and I found this quite icky in some places and very very tense and atmospheric!

When you land make sure you get your System Failure HUD package. You will need wear the HUD to be able to interact with everything and for it to register your progress and give you hints at what to do next by reading the green text that appears. It also registers any items you need to proceed. You also get the Lab coat and Employee Badge Lanyard shown below:

Bear in mind that this isnt a hunt, it is a game where you will have to interact with the background, read clues, finding codes and items that will help you proceed to the next part. Trust me you will need your eyes wide open along the way. As you move through the game you will also be looking for silver shield badges to purchase for L$0 .. these contain prizes donated by lots of generous designers.

My advice for you is… Interact with EVERYTHING, try to open things, read things, touch things and look EVERYWHERE! You never know what you might find or where you might find it! There are 60 or so hidden Shields to find.. I don’t think I found them all but I found a huge chunk of it! Please don’t ask me where specific things are because I really couldnt tell you their exact location as there are so many prizes and being involved in the game play is quite disorientating.

I will be doing this in a couple of parts as there are quite alot of things to show and I don’t want to hog the blog! I really hope you will give this a go as it is alot of fun! ALL of these items are found INSIDE the game as you move around the areas so there are no individual SLURLS to give.
