FabFree Photo Challenge #8 – FabFree Challenge Champion

Our seventh round of the FabFree Photo Challenge, April Showers has ended, and we had a ton of truly excellent rainy day submissions!  Rain is a tricky thing to find in Second Life, and when I come across a good rain display I am always pleased!  The sound of the raindrops falling is peaceful to me, even inworld.

Thank you to those that took the time to participate!  It was Madison Mars that took the title of FabFree Photo Challenge Champion for this round with her amazing rainy day shot photo below!  Congratulations Madison!

Pink {dollle*} Fix

Snapshot_003Good evening Fabulous Readers 🙂 I hope you are all enjoying your week so far!  After a long day of RL work, I was feeling the need for a refreshing “pink fix”!, so I did a little shopping and put some free and some sale items together.  I hope that you’ll like them enough to grab them too.

In the notices of the {dollle*} inworld group you’ll find this adorable Easter Holidays Dress 2014 for just a few more days.  This was posted on the 19th of April, and notices stick around for two weeks so you’ll want to pick this one up soon!  The group is free to join.

To accessorize my new dress, I added the April group gift from Izzie’s which is the Butterfly Jewerly Set including the Necklace in short, med. & long versions, earrings,  and L&R rings too!  This group is 250L to join, but Izzie always puts out fabulous monthly gifts!

Snapshot_004The skin I am in tonight is Al Vulo Celestial Natural Milk which is just one of three of the skin variations that Al Vulo has featured at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion for 70L per set.  Each set includes Mesh Lashes, three eye brow colour options, three hairbases, cleavage options, as well as Phat Azz, Lola Tango, Baby Bump, & Slink Hands and Feet Appliers.

Just one more stop to complete this look, and that stop is at…  The Cosmopolitan Sales Room where you will find a TON of smoking hot deals from a variety of designers across the grid (not to mention free group gifts!!), including these fab items from -{ZOZ}-!  The Tiffany Polish Huds come in a set of fingers and toes for just 75L….
zoz… and these hot Slink add-on (for the Slink High Feet) Tiffany Heels that are beautifully decorated with jewels and bows in a fatpack of four colours (blue, orchid, tulip & sand) for just 125L!

Until next time… xox!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – YOU MEAN THERE ARE GIFTS FOR MEN TOO AT FABFREE HEADQUARTERS?

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone

You heard it here first, fellas.  Tucked away between all those super gifts for women from the FabFree designers at Headquarters are some great things for guys.  This is just a quick post to show you two of the men’s gifts you can pick up there, plus a great free group gift skin.

The skin I’m wearing in both pictures is Elijah (Tone 5//Beardy).  It’s one of eight skintones in a a free group gift for men from Aeva/Heartsick .  Included in the pack are the tones shown below, some of which come in both bearded and clean-shaven, plus the option to show the teeth as both a tatoo layer overlay or an alpha layer on the lips.  All of the skintones are bald so that you don’t have to worry about a hairbase peeking out from under your regular hair.
Aeva:Heartsick Elijah Skintones

First off at FabFree Headquarters is a mesh jacket and tee from GoodVibeZ.  There’s great pocket detailing on this jacket which gives you room for your car keys, cell phone, or any of the other stuff you need to carry around with you. The gift box gives you the choice of a plain tee or the patterned one shown here.  The hat and hair in the picture are from sf design do not come with the gift.  The baseball cap is not free, but the “hat hair” in several different hair colors is free at sf designs and is what you need for wearing hats when your regular hair just won’t fit inside.

This next men’s Headquarters gift from is from FABOO.  This pair of Hawaiian print board shorts arrives just in time for the long warm weather beach season in Second Life.  You could wear then surfing, but frankly they work just as well for lying in a hammock.

Clear A Couple of Group Spaces, Ladies!

Snapshot_002Hey fabulouses!  SL is very finicky for me tonight, and I was afraid to snap pictures, but managed to get a couple shots with minimal crashing!  The vibrant colors of my outfit today inspired me to visit the Metropolis Sim, which is a very well put together cityscape, perfect for hanging out, meeting people – or like I did today…  photography!  Some people dress for the day ahead, but in SL my day is determined by the way I dress lol 🙂

I am wearing the latest free group gift at Prism called Chelsea by Journey – Batik.  This gift includes the capris and matching mesh top in several sizes, as well as lola tango appliers for those partaking in the meshy bewbage.  The Prism inworld group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts available.  Most of them have been shown right here on FabFree, and you can find them by typing “Prism” into the search button at the top of the blog if you’d like a preview before heading over to the store.
Snapshot_004

Group members of Amacci have a very special treat to pick up at the Amacci Mainstore too.  Once you join the free inworld group you are eligible to pick up the Tyne Skin – Cherry as a free gift .   I am wearing Tyne today, and I quite like this skin – but you’ll have to excuse my “meat hands” as Serena calls them!  I don’t have the slink appliers to match this skin yet lol.  I have been wearing my slink hands so much, that I feel naked without them!  Inside the group gift you will find the skin in the cream skin tone (which I am displaying), and also in nutmeg which is a bit darker, as well as several cleavage option tattoos.

While you are at Amacci picking up this group gift, make sure you hit up the subscribomatic too.  When you join the subscribomatic updates you receive a free pack of eight sets of eyes.  I am wearing the Infinity Brown Image Big Eyes from the pack 😉  There are also several free gifts priced at 0L (no need to be in the group) set out in their FREEBIES area, and an OUTLET room too where you can find a ton of older very inexpensive items.

See you back here soon, Fabulouses! xox

Izzie’s, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Greetings!

It’s one of those days where I just want to cozy up in a comfy chair and bury my nose in a great book.  So today I rummaged around my inventory and found all sorts of treasures from my latest shopping excursions.  My Izzie’s Belted Dress is a combination of mesh and non-mesh pieces and the belt has a color change option in the HUD.  This dress came in one of two clearance boxes, FILLED with all sorts of Izzie’s goodies, for only 10L each!  I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is in those boxes!  I see poses, clothing, hand bags, satchels, jewelry and Holiday items…the list goes on and on and only 10L for the whole shebang!  Make sure you pick up both boxes, located in the foyer at the entrance, because they both have different items in them…what treasures to be found!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!My gorgeous Touch of Stone Jewelry set is only one of several FREE jewelry items from Lazuri!  You’ll find some of the FREE (no group required) Lazuri jewelry items at the Main Store on the first floor near the group gifts (250L group join) and more on the second floor!  This Touch of Stone set comes with two different types of Fuschia stone options and metal change options! My absolutely adorable Baby Black Kite is a FREE gift from 8f8 and comes with an option to have it static on your shoulder, rotating around you or rezzed and rotating.

My stunning skin, Hanako T2 Aka,  was a gift from the skin artist behind Adam n Eve (AE), Sachi Vixen.  One of the things I have always loved about AE skins is that  Sachi details each skin from top to bottom by hand…speaking of which…her skins are known for having the best “bottom” in SL! Her skins are truly a work of art…NO templates here…100% original.

The particular skin gifted to me  came with delicious ruby red lips but I opted to use a Light Peachy Lipgloss from Esk-Imo.  The lip gloss is an old gift and no longer available…but you will find FREE eyeliner at the landing point and reasonably priced (150L and under) makeup tattoos in the makeup room. I topped the lipgloss off with Izzie’s Glossy Lips Highlights, from the Marketplace,…NOT free (149L) but ohhhhhhhhhh so worth it…what a difference it makes to the lips!  Yum!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!Love sent me these fabulous Athens (Pink) gacha shoes, from Essenz…she knows I ADORE all things pink!  These shoes are available as a gacha item (75L per play) at the The Comic Fair.  Thank you Love!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

What would a trip to a bookstore be without this cute little [POSH] Book Purse (Alice in Wonderland )for only 10L, from [POSH], on the Marketplace!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Once I had my outfit all sorted out, I headed for a cozy little place called the Novel Cafe.  I found this sweet bookstore/cafe as a result of a wonderful conversation with one of our amazing FabFree readers…Macey.  Macey is the creator behind this charming little bookstore/cafe and has done a lovely job at making a comfy place to curl up with a good book and a latte.  Be sure to venture out beyond the Bookstore/Cafe…there are other things to also discover and explore there!  Thank you for the tour and the fabulous conversation Macey…it was a pleasure to meet you! ❤

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤
