High Desert Morning

High Desert Morning

 

Packing it up for the weekend…

I need a little getaway to put my mind at ease and to get a bit of stress relief.  So I hooked up the Airstream and started driving. I found a spot in the High Desert to camp and listen to the beautiful sounds of silence. With just the wind in my face and in my ears, it’s easy to relax here.

Not a Loud Rebel….

Today’s outfit is from Loud Rebel Designs. They are celebrating their new store on the Celebration sim with a FREE group gift to members. The Dennis Outfit is a one piece outfit that combines a shirt, pants and a jacket and includes a texture changing HUD to give you three different looks. The group is FREE to join currently, so grab this gift while you can.

Everyone enjoy your weekend…. I’m gonna relax….

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/27/2017 – Aphrotdite Shop

Aphrodite Shop
I hope you’ve all enjoyed your Friday thus far. Today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday focuses on a whimsical shop called Aphrodite. This playful shop centers around cute furniture, seasonal items, decor, and landscaping materials. The Aphrodite Shop is nicely decorated and landscaped, so in addition to any shopping, it’s a pretty spot to look around. At the landing point is where you’ll find the wall of event and group affiliation information.
Aphrodite Gifts & Info
There are several gifts and offers on this wall, including the Fab Free Exclusive group gift. Serena showed the FREE box of valentines sweets gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in her post “Home Alone.” To get your copy, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Be sure to check out the other offers on this wall as well. Just across from the wall with gifts is where you’ll find the Aphrodite Shop gift cards, flickr, Facebook, and subscriber  kiosk. You can also join the in world group for just 99 lindens and be rewarded with occasional gifts, discounts, and exclusives. For a little instant gratification, join the Aphrodite Shop subscriber group and be instantly gifted a nice wooden drink cart for your home, no fees.  Between the decorative items, seasonal decor, landscaping, and furniture, it won’t be hard to find something you want or need for your personal space, or you can just bring your significant other or your best friend and enjoy the scenery.

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Hair w/Headband – Clawtooth: Winter Romance Essentials Pack – 50L for Fifty Linden Friday Only

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Head Applier/Skin – Essences – Lark [Catwa Catya Bento Applier / Omega] – Currently Available @Kustom 9

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island.  I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world.  I found the perfect poses for times like these.  Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers.  Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package.  Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included:  

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

Breakdown

Outbreak

Nothing but steam…

Ok, not the ideal place for my radiator to spring a leak, but I’m have to make due.  I saw a house a mile or so back. I could go there and ask for help, but it did look old and abandoned. maybe I should walk up ahead and made find some help.

Maybe I should have stayed with the car. The farther I walk the foggier it gets. Today I’m wearing the Wyatt Open Shirt a FREE group gift at Ashbury. The group is also FREE to join. I’m still wearing the Brooklyn Pants (with a different texture) from TentatioN  I modeled yesterday [HERE] along with the Barcelona Shoes by A&D Clothing.

The fog is starting to thin a bit. I think I see someone up ahead. They seem to be wearing a fedora and a striped sweater. I made it to my destination, this has to be Elm Street!

I’m Seeing Stars

Snapshot_014
Is it summer yet? I really just want to sit in the sand and watch the boats go by!  Since it’s only April, and still freezing…  I’ll have to settle for some SL summer therapy for now.

Starring Precious Designs

I picked up this star printed sundress called Songbird at Precious Designs as a free Maitreya Sales & News Group gift.  It had a nautical feel to it that made me ache for sand between my toes.  This dress includes a texture change HUD with six different colour choices.  You can also pick up matching shoes as a free group gift in the vendor below the dress!  This group is free to join.

Sizes available:

  • Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

Light Reading_002

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

Belice Gift :: Woman Shoes :: Two Colors
