Waiting for You…

Waiting for You

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you.
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you.

~Richard Marx, Right Here Waiting For You © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.

I’m an old-fashioned girl. And there’s nothing like a little anticipation to make that special moment a bit more… special. :-)

When I saw this pose from brand-new pose store Positure Poses, I knew I wanted to find something sexy and unusual to show it off. So I was thrilled when Fairy Freng sent me her new gift – I love the sensual, wrapped skirt and the lovely, gold detailing. This gift is free to everyone – no group needed – in celebration of her new store opening. There is also a pretty pendant in the box, which I’m not wearing here. Instead, I’m wearing two new gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The cuffs are a group gift, and the earrings are free to everyone. I’m sorry that I’m not doing the cuffs justice – they really are quite beautiful. I tried turning them around to show the stunning detail, but they just didn’t look right that way. You’ll have to head over to Chop Zuey and see for yourself!

Sigh… the waiting really is the hardest part!

KittyCats Advent Calender & Collabor88 Goodies

There are so many different Breedables in Second Life right now, one of my favourites are the KittyCat breedables. They are so adorable and cute and make the perfect addition to any household in SL even if you don’t want to go down the breeding route.

At the KittyCats sim right now, there is an Advent Calender! With free gifts every day until Christmas! The last gift will be a special gift from the KittyCats themselves! There are TEN doors open right now and they all stay open after each day has past. They will be available until 2nd January so plenty of time to go get them!

You don’t need to join the group to get these gifts, just simply click each day to open the advent calender and recieve the gift. Be patient though as it can be a little slow with everyone clicking at the same time!

The things I love

The things I love

Skin: Essences – Whisper
Hair: Truth – Dee
Dress: Cambridge House – Taylor Dress (1L$)
Boots: K-room – Paint Vanessa boots (1L$)
Ears: Half deer – Deer ears (FLF)
Antlers: Half deer – Metallic leaf vein antlers (SL fashion week)

It’s Friiiiiidayyyyy! Wooo! Which means deals, sales, bargains and general money-saving goodness!

First of all, my dress is 1L$ from Cambridge House on the marketplace. The store is full to bursting with dollarbies and freebies of dresses, tops and jeans for women in a myriad of colours. How does that saying go? “If the dress fits, buy it in every colour because it’s only 1L$”? I think that’s it ;)

My awesome boots are also 1L$ on the marketplace by K-room and they come with an extensive HUD which lets you change size, colour and even the  brightness of your boots!

See the tiny fellow in my hands? Well he’s an adorable little freebie you can pick up at Café Neko no mori in a big box full of adorable tiny animal avatars and accessories! The box even includes a rabbit avatar and a little seat for your new cute self! My little cat friend at my feet is named Skylar! And he’s free from the Kiyomizu hunt at the Kiyomizu mall. He’s only 2 prims and if you give him a tap, he’ll meow!

Finally, Half Deer are taking part in Fifty Linden Fridays and have these adorable fawn ears and a pretty cabinet out for 50L$ each. Not free but a good deal nonetheless! The door of the cabinet can be opened and closed and the ears are an essential for all your deer-related antics!

*X*

Props/Furniture/Decor

Cabinet: Half deer – Display cabinet (FLF)

Deer, fox, owl, squirrel: Half deer – Carved woodland animals (Arcade)

Tiny cat: Café neko no mori – Working kitty Beige (Free)

It’s a Fabulous Frugal Friday

Snapshot_003Good morning ;)  I can still feel the heat outside and see the greenery, but they tell me it’s September…  No more open toed shoes?  :O  Who said that?   I am not sure of the actual rule about white or open toe shoes…  I think it has something to do with Labour Day, but today… I’ll follow it because I feel like boots!  These Belted Ankle Boots that are a group gift at *COCO* have been previously blogged by Serena (here), but they went so great with inexpensive outfit find today, that I had to show them again!

The mesh Sunset on Ibiza Cargo Pants & Shirt are currently 55L at LIV-Glam in the main entrance for 55L Thursday.  This duo is perfect for that inbetweason we seem to be in!  I believe, if I am correct this will be available all week at that price, but don’t quote me!  There are a bunch of other great outfits at 55L too!

I stopped in at Acid Lily and picked up the group gift which is The Delicate Pose Set made by Elephante Poses that includes 6 poses that are fabulous for photography or blogging in SL.   The Acid Lily group is free to join.  I also snagged the Even.Flow’s feature item, which is the Ohm Earrings in Silver for just 60L that Care showed earlier (here).

Happy New Year To One And All!

Snapshot_002 Status Poses has the perfect “New Years toasting pose” that was just released as a free group gift.  Normally the group is 250L to join, however until January 2nd, you can join the group for free and pick up this great pose that includes two champagne glass static poses.

A toast to you – All of us here at Fabulously Free in SL, wish you the very best for the new year and we would like to thank every one of you, from the casual peeker to the die hard every day, sometimes twice a day visitors for your heart-warming support!  Thank you also to the very generous designers who have put out such wonderful gifts over the last year :)

Hugs & Kisses from all of us (even the un-mushy ones!)

Now, lets get back to some free stuff!  Ok, not all of it is free, but mostly!  If you haven’t checked out the Ricielli in store Christmas Hunt you really should!  There are 20 gift boxes (big and easy to find!) hidden around the store with some really nice prizes inside!  Each box is 15L, but you won’t mind paying because.. you can see the prizes before you pick it up on the handy ad below.

 In the photo above I am displaying several of the prizes.  #14 is the Grace Skin with Shadow Gift which sits quite nicely on my shape!  It is a sunkissed skin tone with no cleavage. The Sonia Mesh Jacket I am wearing is #10, which goes great with the Mesh Anna Jeans (#8 – three colours included), and the Ianca Mesh Boots (#6 – four colours included).  Also take note of the Angel Chimes on the table beside me, because that is a free subscribo gift from Laq Decor.  Such a beautiful decorative piece!

Fabulously Free in SL - SL Hunts PageI also noticed when I was in store hunting, that there is a whole pile of cupcakes on the floor near the back, and those cupcakes are the previous hunt – all huddled together for you for easy searching!  Still priced at 15L each :)  You can see the prizes for that hunt here at this link!

 Truth Hair has put a Happy 2013 Group Gift in the subscribo which you can still pick up if you aren’t a current subscriber by subscribing and checking the history.  It includes this adorable updo hairstyle in a fatpack of colours along with the 2013 headband.  It is tintable and you can turn the particles off.  The best part about this gift?  You can choose to wear it with or without the 2013 headband!

Snapshot_004

My new years resolution is to be more active and eat less sugar.  I imagine that will last about a week.  It has been my resolution for about 15 years now and I’m still sitting here eating suger!  /me wonders what your new years resolutions are!!  Leave a comment on this post and share yours :)  Yes.. I know you have to run to Truth first, but then come back and share it, ok?  OK!

Midnight Painter & Shirt Thief

Snapshot_009

“What honey?  No..  I don’t know where your shirt went.  Maybe it’s in the wash.”  :D

RnB Designs is participating in the Flower Power Hunt which runs until October 15th and the prize you will have once you locate the hidden flower icon is this fun painting set that includes the cabinet  to hold all of your art supplies and the  pre-painted canvas on the stand.  It doesn’t come with a brush, but I found one on marketplace for free.  The rugs on the floor made by Zigana are also a free marketplace gift. These come in a pack of 8 different prints and are perfect for layering on the floor in different directions in an artist’s loft.

The comfy flannel shirt in question is made by Leri Miles Design and is currently being featured exclusively at Acid Lily for 70L.  it is a mesh design and comes in several sizes with the alpha layer.  Acid Lily rotates their gallery out each weekend, so don’t delay!  There are also group gifts available.

Saturday Summer Mesh

I put together this entire look for only L$10 and I absolutely love it!  The gorgeous mesh My Summer Jacket is a group gift at Zigana.  R.icielli has a fat-pack of 11 mesh Sally skinny pants on the marketplace for only L$10.  I am wearing the brown pair and a brown Intrinsic tank from Jane.  The group gift flats from Tram come in a variety of colors.

For this outfit the accessories really make the outfit stand out.  R.icielli group members can pick up the dark green leather cowhide tote free in the mesh department.  The Dangle necklace is a 5 year anniversary gift at Primalot.  This necklace has many options to change the bead and metal coloring.

The curly Ombre Shakira hair is the newest group gift for EMO-tions members.  I’m always checking for activity at YS&YS.  The Megan skin is an instore gift for YS&YS members.

The 4 prim blogger studio is a group gift at Fudge.

Furnishings Friday #4 – A Cozy Corner

Snapshot_001

TGIFF because I have some cozy furniture/furnishings to share with you today!

You can find the “Cozy Corner” shown above that includes the rug, two chairs with multiple single animated poses, the table and decorative plant at Rockberry to cozy up a corner of your own.  This entire set is 17 prims.  It can also be found on marketplace at the following link - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/ROCKBERRY-Cozy-Corner-Marketplace/2516137.

The Coat Hanger hanging on the wall is 8 prims and can be found for free in the Zigana Marketplace Store.  It comes in three colours to match up with whatever theme you have going on!  The glowy Light Bulbs can also be found in the Zigana Marketplace Store as a free gift.  You have your choice of white or black cords and the bulbs have a touch colour change hud.

Snapshot_002

I have also got some free and nearly free clothing treats in this post!  The Denim Mesh Dress I have on today is a 1L promo made by Soul Glitter.  It comes in several sizes to suit your avatar and  it can be found on marketplace.  My wedge sandals are the latest group gift at Beach Walk Cafe.  The group is free to join.  The Filthy skin I am in today has been blogged a couple of times previously, but it’s creeping up to the end of the month, which means a new group gift will be out at Filthy soon…  This is a great time to join the group, pick up June’s gift and wait just a few days for July’s gift too!
