Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.  Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!  There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.  Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.  You deserve it! 🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Take a Chill Pill

Chill Pill_001

Special Reminder!

In case you’ve forgotten, Wasabi Pills is having a 60 – 80% off hair sale on older hair styles. Love first told us the big news in December in her post She’s a Snowflake Sweetie. I wanted to remind you before the sale is over!

Once you get to the store, just take the teleport upstairs to a wide selection of both rigged and unrigged hair styles to choose from. I picked up the “Betty” hairstyle in the picture above in a pack of reds for just 50L. I could have picked up a full fatpack of colors for just 350L if I had wanted to! For a gorgeous style like this, you can’t even tell it’s an “older style”!

I’m not sure how much longer this sale will last. So don’t wait! Get to Wasabi Pills TODAY and shop to your heart’s content!

From hair… to dress.

I am loving the Womenstuff Hunt as you might have guessed, as I’ve already featured some of the gifts I’ve found in posts {here}, {here}, and {here}. Today I wanted to show off a pretty formal cocktail dress that I picked up for free while I was out with my usual hunting date. He picked this one up ahead of time, and alerted me to the fact that it was a beauty that I shouldn’t pass up! Just hunt down that little red t-shirt icon at S&B main-store!

We have a date for later where I plan to put this free dress from S&B to good use! Included with this dress is a color change hud and multiple sizes for your mesh body needs.

Dress colors included:

  • Red and Black (shown)
  • Blue and Black
  • Pink and Black
  • Purple and Black
  • Moss and Black
  • Charcoal and Black

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Suit Up

18-01-20

Free as a bird …

As Love mentioned [HERE], there are so many free items at Free Dove. There is also a hunt for group members. Locate the golden heart to find the Blue Christian Suit, one of the hunt prizes by Marquesse. This one-piece suit includes shoes and comes in classic sizes XS-XL. It’s FREE to join the group so why not hunt for this fabulous prize.

no.carson

She actually says that a lot, but also told me about the latest group gift from no.match. She also said that I would most certainly like it. And she was right. The no.vault hair comes with a color change HUD to match your choice of color. The gift is FREE to members but the group does have a 50L join fee. Now I have another choice of hairstyle to put in my rotation.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

In Hindsight

FreedoveHillyHaalanSometimes all you have is hindsight

In hindsight…  This is what I should have done when the snowflakes started to fall.  I am so very jelly of the people that pack up in October and head south for the whole winter season!  Hang in there Northerners…  There are just three short months of this icy freezing mess to go (maybe four :/)!

Hopeful Visualization

As I was imagining myself getting the heck out of winter dodge, I was stylin in my new Maggie Gee Outfit by Hilly Haalan that I had just picked up at The Free Dove as a free group gift.  The Maggie Gee outfit can be worn all in one piece as a set or you can wear the jacket or skirt as separates.  Probably the most exciting news about this gift is that it comes with a 30 texture option HUD so you the fashion opportunities are endless!  The Free Dove group is free to join and as I am sure you already know from previous posts on FabFree that there is a massive amount of freebies to be had in that building.

Sizes Included:

  • Entire Outfit XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Solo Skirt XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Solo Jacket XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer

btw…  Also in hindsight, I am so glad I took a trip down to The Free Dove, because it had been a few weeks since my last visit and there are plenty of new items!

Down to There

Down to There

Oh, you know how it is, getting invited to balls and galas every other minute.  Can’t keep my calendar clear for half a second these days… Or maybe it’s just me enjoying some me time and posing by a fountain wearing a free gown that is cut down to there…  Most likely the second option, come on people…

Emerald Stunner

Yep, this gown is absolutely free.  No, I’m not joking.  This gorgeous emerald gown is a free group gift at the new Sense event.  You can pick it up by joining the Sense Group for free, and clicking ever so delicately on the vendor (or just mash your mouse, I know I did…ha!).   I love the daring cut, as well as the sparkly bits.  So prettyyyy.  Sense is open until February 8th!

A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Of Course I Wake Up Like This

Morning GlowYeah….  Right!

I am giggling to myself right now because this photo is so the opposite of how I wake up!   Maybe after a shower, an hour of fussing and a much larger cup of coffee than the one depicted in the photo, but certainly not straight out of bed.

The reason I come to you in my undies today is because…

The Tabata Set shown on my avatar including the bra and panties as well as the little open robe is just one of four new group gifts at Pacagaia Creations.  You may remember me mentioning this store a couple weeks back [HERE] in December when they were offering a 1000L instore credit for Christmas (no longer available).  I hope you joined then and took advantage of that offer, but also stayed in the group so that you could have the new group gifts for January too!  I am in love with the Tabata Set, and it even comes with a texture change HUD to allow for six robe textures and six solid colours for the bra and panties.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis
  • TMP

All four group gifts for January shown below in their vendor ad.
