Naked and Afraid 

Gau

Alone in the Jungle for 21 Days…

… Does Carson have what it takes to be Naked and Afraid? Probably not. I like a cozy, comfortable bed and a pantry full of food. But I can look the part in the newest FREE group gift from *It’s Gau*. The jungle themed Adao outfit would be perfect for survival based role play or just for getting back to nature. The *It’s Gau* group is FREE to join.

Under My Skin…

Today I thought I’d switch it up and try on the latest group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. The Jager Skin is FREE to members, but there is a $225L cost to join this group. If you’re into skins, this would be worth your money because there’s a FREE gift to members monthly. The skin comes in a variety of  tones and for different body types, and even comes with it’s own shapes (not shown). I think I’ll stalk my next meal… *heads off to the refrigerator*

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

A Warming Trend

Morning Dew_001

I see a trend.

This warm weather thing must be a trend. I think a few of us have been longing for a break from the cold weather. If you are also into fantasy roleplay (or even if you are not), I’ve found a warm weather outfit that may just suit your fancy. I took a stroll among the flowers with it, but I can see it fitting into a roleplay wardrobe too.

The dress.

The latest group gift from EvelineInTheBox is easily one of my favorite gifts from the creator yet. It is very elaborate with a plunging neckline, shoulder straps, a strap across the chest, and very unique sleeves that sort of remind me of “I dream of Jeanie.” As always, the group is free to join, making the gift free to you.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Werwolf
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wrap it up.

I paired my new dress with a unique gift from Merlific. These Maitreya specific leg wraps not only fit like a dream, they are sexy too. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. You’ll get a gift package that contains five colors (black, white, red, blue, and purple). I’m showing off the black in my picture as it matched my outfit. Don’t miss your chance to pick these up!

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

That Morning-After Feeling

Sweatpants

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I don’t know how she does it… She drinks like a sailor and then can be so chipper the next morning. While I on the other hand, feel like there’s someone inside my head attacking me with an ice pick and my mouth tastes like a family of Bigfoots had a picnic in there. We had a late night staff meeting midnight margaritas and I’m feeling the after effects today.  It was nice that she let me sleep in while she ran out to do errands. She could have left the bottle of aspirin a little closer though… I think I’ll just lay here for a bit in a new group gift at the Menstuff LoungeRobbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos has placed the Blue Pagoda Sweats out for group members ($50L joining fee). The outfit includes the sweatpants, sneakers and even a shirt (that I somehow lost in a game of stri … cards). Maybe I’ll try and get some work done while she’s out  and then a nap… yes definitely a nap…
