It’s Reigning Buckled Pumps!

Snapshot_002

Good evening Fabulouses!  When Lyric sent me a message to “GO GET THOSE SHOES!”, I raced over and  I knew I had to hop right in them so I could give you the skinny!  Thank you for the heads up Lyric :).  These Buckled Shamrock Pumps that fit on the Slink Mesh High Feet are a free group gift that you can find in the past notices of the Reign inworld group.  The group is free to join, and you’ll receive both the gold buckled version and the silver version as well.  This was placed in the notices on the 17th of March, so they will very soon disappear!

I have been having a hard time trying to find just the right outfit to show with these smexy shoes, but finally found something with a little shamrock on the shoulder!  The Taste My Own Tears outfit that includes the mesh jeans and blouse (6 texture options!!) is available for 49L as a Secret Wednesday Sale at LIV-Glam.

Enjoy your evening!!

Dr. Pixel Coming Atchya on FabFree!

Good evening Fabulous readers!  I have news of yet another addition to our blogging team… Although this is a little different than our usual additions!  After reading our Fab Advice questions, Dr. Pixel (Jacob Forsythe), asked if he could be assistance to us for the more technical stuff we can’t answer for you, like our recent questions on alpha layers and machinema.  Dr. Pixel will be here, posting Wednesdays with SL tips, tutorials and issue fixes!  Below is a personal message from Dr.Pixel himself.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************
Dr. Pixel Coming Atcha On FabFree!
Hello peeps!

Dr. Pixel coming atchya….

First let me say, thank you to Love, for allowing me to help out here on FabFree and I hope that I don’t step on her toes to hard. 🙂
I have been reading FabFree for about 6 years now and always found that they -do- try to get players the best things for the lowest cost.
——————————–
As for why I am here:
I look forward to trying to help players of Second Life in any way that I may be able to help. I have done many things in SL as most have, and have also taught classes to several that dealt with just about anything. I also like learning and being taught something that I do not know, so that works both ways :).

I like challenges and learning things that deal with the game of SL. I know, to some, it is not a game and I respect that, but I see it as a game and enjoy all the talent that comes from within SL,  which makes it even better, we get to see all types of talents and ideas that people come up with and how their imaginations are so exciting and expressive.

I believe that if one knows something that they can share with others, that is a good thing, they can share that with someone else down the line with someone else that they help.

I may not know the right way to do something, but I do know what works for me and that it may help you as well. “Sharing is caring”, in this case, knowledge.

I will do some helpful hint type things to hopefully help people out with what I know or learned over the years.
What works for me, may not work for you.
——————————–
A  little about my av in case you see me wondering about in world:
As any game, one can be what ever they want to be, and with SL, we can be that Dragon from D&D that we always wanted to be, or Tanthalas from Dragonlance that we may have admired so much.

Or we can even be the opposite sex from our real lives. Which leads me to my AV. I do use all sort of avatars for my character in SL just as others may use a Mermaid or a Centaur. So don’t be afraid to say hi if you see me out and about in world bumping into walls or walking off into the ocean somewhere. I’d probably be fiddling around with trying to get unstuck or trying not to land on your head 🙂
Okay! That’s about it for now. I will see you inworld some where.

Again, thanks to Love and all of you FabFree readers for allowing me to be here! Without you, FabFree wouldn’t be here.

Be safe, and, “Be kind 2 one another.” (Ellen Degeneres)

TWA_LNS_TRUTH_ESSENCES_BYSNOW_SLINK_03302014Hello there my pretties!

I’ve been so busy with my store, and yet…. There is kind of this feeling of loss when I think of blogging… so I decided to pick up the latest “The White Armory” giftie and show it off… Gotta dust off those blog skillz now and then no?  I added one of TRUTH ‘s latest hair releases which is so good I weep a little inside.  By Snow has these really great nail appliers that worked so well with the outfit.  The skin is the latest release from ESSENCES  over at The Dressing Room – FUSION event.   Of course I just had to add some of my own store’s items by putting on our eyes and jewelry..

Casting The Water

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! Are you mesmerized by my water casting?  Oh come on… play along!  I may not be magic, but there are some awesome Water Casting Poses at the new round of The Candy Factory made by LaNoir Soleil Designs that will put a little enchantment into your hands too.  There are several different poses available in a gacha machine at 47L per play.
Another cool item you will find as a gacha at The Candy Factory in LaNoir Soleil Design’s display in several colour variations is the Water Lotus Head Chains at 74L per play.
Snapshot_004While you are visiting, make sure you snag the free gift LNS has placed out for you – the little shoulder Water Sprite!  **  Note – The Candy Factory officially opens on April 1st, and some designers might be not quite set up, but LNS is!

Snapshot_002The gorgeous white, lacy dress you see me wearing today is currently in the Midnight Mania Board at PeKaS, locking down at 130 slaps.  It’s called The Best Love, and  also includes arm silks and gloves (not shown).  There is also a MM board with a prize for men and lucky boards too!
Snapshot_003Wondering about the skin I am in?  This is WoW Skins Sarola April GG Skin and it is the newest group gift for WoW Skins inworld group members (300L to join).  It may seem like a high join fee, but let me tell you, it’s VERY worth the lindens.  Once you join you gain access to a year’s worth of group  gifts, daily MM board prizes that switch up often, and 10 lucky group only boards!  You’ll be rolling in skins!

Enjoy spring with gifts from fabulous designers!

So, after checking out the recent posts by the other wonderful fabfree bloggers  that show off some of the gifts available at the fabfree station, I thought I’d continue the trend and show a couple more!

This Tee dress by Zanze is rigged mesh and comes in the 5 standard sizes. The dress also includes a really neat HUD!

You click the size you wear at the bottom, and it dispenses the dress to you, then you wear the dress and can choose the colour via the same HUD!

I’m Blossom-ing

finesmith_mar4_001f

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! I’ve been dying to see some spring, so I decided to show you this gorgeous Blossom gown and headpiece, which are the March group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. 🙂 And just as I was finishing up these photos, I got a note that the April group gift is out at Finesmith, so be sure to pick that one up too, while you’re there! My pose is from the March gift pack at Diesel Works Animations, originally shown by Skyler here. Be sure to grab yours before the gift is gone!

Blogging soon!

This pretty Mimi skin by Belleza is still available at The Arcade Gacha Event. I’m wearing makeup #3 (rare); Love showed #9 here. I have added a glossy lipstick by Lumae, which you can find in a free pack of 6 colors at The Skin Fair. Last day for both events is TODAY, so hurry over! BTW, I am smiling ever-so-slightly for the FabFree Photo Challenge #7: Show Us Your Smile. Sadly, I’m a day late for the challenge, but hey, better late than never, right? 😀
