Let’s Talk About L O V E

Snapshot_002

Hey FabFree! I am back real quick to share some more freebie news with you today!  I even grabbed Carson from his evening shopping run (which I am usually not allowed to interrupt) to come and show off a great new couples gift.  As you can see he is already planning his exit with his eye on the door… because …

Hello Tuesday is just for one day!

Carson had just picked up the  A&D Vest & Shirt at the Cosmopolitan Sim location for 50% off – priced only at 100L for today only.  There are plenty of other great stops on the sim with items either 50% off or priced at 50L, so have a stroll and check it out!  You might even see him there.

Stop in at Rowena’s Designs Too

Today as I was picking up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Rowena’s Designs [freshly announced HERE], I noticed that they also had this sexy Gwen dress as a free SLF&O group gift!  This smoking hot dress comes with a texture change hud for several different colours and also includes several sizes for different body types.

Let’s Talk About Love

You know…  I’m a sucker for stuff with my name on it and when Carson saw the new group gift at Earthworx , he knew I had to have it.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Earthworx has put out a lovely decorative Floor Shelf with a potted glitter heart that comes in at just 6 prims.  The funny part was… after it was all set up, I noticed it had 3 couples dance animations in it!  The pose we are in is from one of the three animations.  What a sweet  bonus 🙂  This group is 25L to join.

Free as a Bird (or Two)

Be Kind. Even on Your Bad Days

Well, hello there Fabulouses!  On this cool, gray day, Ripley and I set out to explore the Whimberly sim, and we met up with some old friends we had first encountered waddling up a ramp into their washtub pond {HERE} over on the Painter’s Link sim.  As you can see, they are all grown up now, and have migrated to a home of their own away from Mama and Papa.

A Thick, Knitted Sweater to Ward off the Chill

Even though it was a brisk cloudy day, I stayed cozy and warm throughout my visit with Cali and Abigail, thanks to my free sweater from Luziefee.  My Tula knitted shirt is the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from designer Luzie Cheng of Luziefee.  I discovered three versions tucked inside the package – red, blue, and  green.  Since its bands of cool colors reminded me of the beach glass I used to collect as a child, I opted to wear the green sweater for my photo. Each color pack comes in a variety of sizes from XXS to L, so you are sure to find just the right fit for your avatar.  The texture of the chunky knitting is quite realistic looking!  Also included in the present is a Nail HUD so you can apply perfectly matching striped polish to your fingertips if you so desire.  Sadly, I didn’t notice the polish until after I had snapped my photo.  To add Tula to your sweater collection, simply switch over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, pop on over to Luziefee, and click the gift board.  It’s easy and completely free!

Glitter Glass

Ripley must have known I was in a beach glass state of mind, because he approached me with the Powder Blue Glitter Glass Necklace from Evica dangling from his mouth.  He nudged my leg and offered me his Fabulous Find.  As you may already know, my boy has a nose for bargain-priced fashion finds, and today was no exception.  He had discovered this gorgeous piece of jewelry on the Marketplace for a mere 50L.  After slipping the bauble around my neck, I rewarded the pup with his favorite Ripley snack, and we shared a celebratory high-five.

Complete the Look

The other day, when I logged on, I was happy to see an offline IM that had been left by Fabulous Reader, Rowan Carroll, telling me about a nail art shop I had never been to before called The Odd Eyed Cat.  As soon as I read the words “the entire store of appliers is under 75L,” I teleported so quickly Ripley almost couldn’t track me down!  There is an adorable pink, red and black striped Gillian polish on the wall for only 1L (definitely scooped that one up!) and tons of other color combinations for either Maitreya or Slink nails throughout the store.  When I spotted the Tabitha Nail Applicator in Neutral Blankes, I was entranced by its metallic, gleaming finish.  The blue tone was a lovely match for my sea glass sweater.  I only spent 59L for 12 hues of polish in this one package.  It was a great deal!  Thank you for the tip, Rowan! 🙂

Off to Face the Middle of the Week…

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, and the weekend will coast ever closer after that.  This week has already seemed extra-long to me, even though it’s only Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off.  Until my next post, happy shopping, my friends!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Snapshot_003Hi there Fabulous Readers!   I don’t know about you, but I for one can appreciate an expressive man…  It would be a real shame to have to tear all the petals off of this beautiful velvety bouquet of roses and play the game of “he loves me, he loves me not”.  First of all it would take forever, and then all I would have left is a bunch of pokey sticks and a mess to clean up.  I am not saying it wouldn’t be fun…  for the first few roses, but come on… there are at least 48 in this bunch!  I’d be plucking petals for days.

Come Up Smelling Like A Rose

If you’d like to come up smelling like a rose to someone special in Second Life, Scandalize has just the free gift for you!  This inworld group is free to join, and once you activate your inworld group tag, you can pick up a ton of group gifts in the way of dresses, lingerie, swimwear and jewelry as well as this lovely HUGE bouquet of roses.

I have pulled my camera in very close to parade the beautiful texture of the roses, but also wanted to mention that the sparkly black Tiara dress that I am wearing is also a free group gift.  Kathryn has also shown us a couple of the other group gifts that are still available at Scandalize [HERE], and [HERE].

Every Rose Has It’s Thorn

It’s true…  and the thorn here is that it’s no transfer so you won’t be able to give these lovely flowers away to someone, but they will be a very nice gesture to be rezzed out  as décor for your slover this Valentines Day all the same.  Better yet – bring your sweetie to the shop and have her/him pick up their very own holdable copy! ❤

Cat Napping

Dench Designs GG

Not feeling like myself…

I’ve had a rough day. There’s been a knot in my stomach and pressure on my chest all day. I must be coming down with something. I’ve headed back to the bachelor pad to self quarantine myself so not to give anyone else what I could be coming down with. And also not to snap at anyone… I’m not a good patient. So with Angel on my lap ( I thought she was black and white), I’m just going to sit by the fire and rest. I’m wearing the Casual Red Plaid Outfit (I showed the pants off yesterday [HERE]) by 69 Park Ave, a FREE gift at the Menstuff Lounge to it’s members. The Menstuff group does have a joining fee of $50L but the gifts are many and plentiful throughout the year.

Chair full of kittens…

I realized I’ve been feeling poorly ever since my new furniture arrived. And Angel DOES NOT LIKE this chair… At least I know it can’t be my allergies because Angel is hypo-allergenic. My new furniture set comes from *Dench Designs*. Dench Designs is celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a big thank you to it’s members. There is a gift box in the notices that contains a slew of home decor items there were too numerous to show them all, but I have picked out a select few to show off. The Stone Fireplace, Coffee table, Table Lamp, Houseplant and Texture Change Rug are all part of the Anniversary gift and that’s just scratching the surface. The *Dench Designs* group if FREE to join. But that isn’t the only gift box at *Dench Designs*. The monthly group gift is also available. The Slumber Chair comes with several animation and features like the blanket (pictured above). Hey what’s this? Now I know why I feel so horrible. This cute cat was hiding in my chair. I guess I’ll go take some Benadryl and hopefully feel better soon.

We Could Be Royals

We Could Be Royals

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II may be my 10th cousin (twice removed), but I certainly don’t expect to be invited to the Palace for tea anytime soon.

Or ever.

But that certainly won’t keep me from having a royal fantasy in SL, especially when I can find such amazingly “luxe” items as these for free! 😀

Let Me Live That Fantasy

I started my royal fantasy with this gorgeous gown that I picked up as a free group gift at the ULTRA Event. Designed by Snowpaws, this silky dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It has the big bow you see here on the front, as well as a petite bow and flexi-attachment-train in the back that goes swish-swish when you walk (not literally, of course). Both are detachable if you’d prefer a sleek, sexy look.

Head over to the ULTRA Event and join the free group to pick up ALL the gifts before the event closes on February 15th. More Fab Free posts about ULTRA:

 

We Could Be Royals

I’m In Love With Being Queen

Love and I were definitely on the same wavelength today because I also stopped by The Free Dove. I was looking for some jewelry to go with my gown and ran across this delicate pearl set called “Your Majesty” by new-to-me designer ~TEMPESTUOUS~.

But what really caught my eye was the matching free crown. A FREE CROWN! Who doesn’t need one of those, am I right? I, for one, absolutely needed one, for no reason other that it’s a crown. And free. And… hellooooo, FREE CROWN, LOL!

Anyway… the FREE CROWN is no-mod, but it does come with a resizer. Simply touch the crown, and when the blue box pops up, select “All Prims.” I only mention this because I accidentally selected “This Prim,” and… oops. Thankfully, I figured out what I had done before I made too much of a mess.

Well now, according to my diamond timepiece, it’s time for this royal to drive Cadillacs in her dreams and walk her tiger on a gold leash. 😉

Now is the Time….

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have quick, time sensitive post to share with you today featuring a free group gift.  The group is free to join only until January 31st, so don’t delay if you would like to scoop up this lovely gift for free.

While Rip and I wandered about SL, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest group gift from MMC Store.  As soon as I opened the texture included in the notice, and had a peek at the Celline dress, I knew she was destined for my inventory.  Quick as a wink, I teleported over to the shop, joined the group, and scooped up Celline, as well as the 5 other group gifts featured on the wall just inside the door.

Little.  Black.  Dress.

Every girl needs a slinky, black dress and this little number is just about as perfect as you can get.  With a daring neckline, sexy cut out, satiny fabric, and darling ties in the back, Celline hugs your curves in all the right places.   Simple enough to wear to work, yet easily accessorized and glammed up for an evening date, this dress is a valuable addition to your SL closet.  The 16-texture HUD included with the gift opens up a wide range of possibilities beyond merely a black dress.  As of January 29th, the group is free to join, and the dress is one of six free group gifts available to members.  As I stated earlier, the free join is for a limited time only, so if you have a hankering for this frock, I’d suggest you pop on over to the MMC Store right away.  After the 31st, the join fee will increase to 50L.  Even at that price, this dress is well worth the fee!

What’s Included

  • Fitted Mesh for Classic Avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic Avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Eve (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), The Mesh Project, and Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
  • Color change HUD packed with 16 textures

That’s it for now, my friends.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Don’t Overthink It

Snapshot_019

Kiss this…

So often, we over think the trivial things… replaying conversations out in our head, looking for that hidden meaning that isn’t there or never intended. Over thinking actions, when the least benign and most obvious answer is usually right. And over thinking our wardrobe seems to be a major problem, especially in Second Life. I’ve always tried to live by the KISS rule, Keep It Simple Stupid (at least when it comes to clothes, I’m an overachieving  over-thinker in other aspects). And hopefully I’ve done that with today’s ensemble.

It all starts with a good foundation…

Normally, my footwear choice is an afterthought to the clothing choices I make. But today’s look began with the shoes. I heard there was a new group gift at PREY. The Men’s Red Deck Shoes is a FREE group gift to members and the PREY group is FREE to join. I have a feeling I’ll be getting some mileage out of these shoes before Valentine’s Day is over.

Spend a little, get a lot….

I try and live as FabFree as possible, but sometimes you have to spend a little to get the most mileage out of your wardrobe. When I was out skateboarding last weekend, I saw the Oscar Mesh Shirt at A&D Clothing. This shirt very much my RL style and thought about buying one shirt ($199L). But after investigating the HUD driven fatpack that comes with 12 shirts and 6 exclusive shirts that are not sold separately, I was sold on the set. It put me back $1299L but now, I have over a half a month’s worth of shirts that I don’t repeat on the colors. It’s all about the versatility…

Mixin’ up the ‘stuff

Since my return, I’ve noticed that free and inexpensive shirts are in abundance, but free pants are sorely lacking. Sometimes you have to mix and match free gifts to achieve the look you’re going for. I picked up the Casual Red Plaid Outfit by 69 Park Ave at the Menstuff Lounge and “borrowed” the pants for this look.  While I was at the Menstuff Lounge, I decided to accessorize with the Heavy Leather Bullet Turquoise Bracelet provided by GLINT. Both these gifts are FREE to members but it does cost $50L to join the group.

So now I’m ready to grab an early burger and beer with the guys and be home in time to surprise her for some Netflix and chill. (I’m on a two beer limit, not repeating New Year’s Eve EVER again).
