Achoo!

-snifflesniff- Oh the things I do for you, Commander. He’s been so sulky recently (I wonder why. He does have the treehouse to himself) and to remedy this I decided to take him on my latest outing. Something urban was what I had in mind, but he seemed insistent on the quiet little nooks and crannies and we ended up on snowy Honeycomb. It was quite lucky that I already had on this cozy outfit or else you’d be seeing a Sheidey-cicle.

Lifesaver.

There’s been more activity recently on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift page but before you go running off I’d like to bring to your attention this wonderfully comfortable gift from BlackRose. With a few sims still in the grip of Winter (let’s face it some of those will be Wintery all year long, it is SL after all) it’s best to at least keep some warm outfits at hand. A top candidate for this is the wonderfully textured Hearts sweater dress. Long sleeved and loose fitting, this sweater dress is great to move around in and I simply adore the contrasting white heart patterns on it. Though the dress’ high turtleneck collar is guaranteed to protect your neck from cool winds, the Hearts sweater dress also features an inbuilt scarf for added warmth. The scarf itself is complimentary to the outfit (and perfect for days when you don’t want to stand around choosing accessories for yourself) with it’s darker red tones and pretty Aztec-esque prints that add a nice dash of teal to the entire outfit. Sizes included in the gift package are; five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size. There is also a great alpha layer included that really helps with the fitting.

The Hearts sweater dress is free with your free Fabulously Free in SL group tag; take a peek {HERE} to get the details of how to join up. If you have another group slot to fill up, do consider joining the BlackRose store group as not only is it free but they have two group gifts (one of them blogged {HERE} by Love) out now for you to collect.

Family outing (accessories)XOXO

Valentine’s Day may be over but I don’t see why I should stop wearing red or forsake anything heart shaped until next year. I’ve only just gotten into the many, many Valentines themed hunts going on across the grid at the moment, with one of them being the XOXO hunt. This hunt puts a great twist on the traditional hunting format in that you’ll need to rely on lucky and charm (but mostly just luck) to get your prize. When you arrive at participating merchants, just spot the golden heart and type in ‘xoxo’ without the quotation marks in local chat. If that ‘lurve connection’ is strong, you’ll the prize for free and if not, you’ll have 24 hours to practice your wooing and try again. If you don’t want to wait for your objects of affection, however, simply pay the vendor 50L for your prize. The hunt hud is pretty nifty for getting around fast and is available from the organizer’s office or from the Marketplace for free.

My first round of the hunt yielded some pretty great results as I managed to snag these unique booties from Bodhi. Just look at the heels on these!! How could I pass up wearing something with heart-shaped heels?! ! (-Ahem- Must remember to be professional. -coughcough-) The open toe design and luscious deep red color also work in favor of these booties as do the gold studding that adorns its body. The Bodhi heart heels are made for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet only.

Another prize that I picked up on the XOXO hunt trail was the Hypnotic Hearts fatpack from Koffin Nails. I’m always looking for new manicure and pedicure stores (-glances guiltily at all the nail polish bottles on her vanity-) and was pretty excited to receive this gift from Koffin Nails. Included are applier huds for Maitreya and Slink mesh hands and feet and an Omega applier hud for mesh bodies compatible with that system. On the hud are nine striking duel colored combinations to choose from. Personally, I love how glossy these nails look and the detailing of the heart shape on each one is simply amazing. The XOXO Hunt is running from the 11th to the 25th of this month so go and try your luck!

And that’s a wrap. The wind is picking up and come on Commander, let’s see if Mama Bear and the twins would like to join us for dinner.

Catch you guys later! Oh but before I leave here’s a closer look at that amazing mani and pedi set from Koffin Nails.

Saturday Night

Snapshot_003
Hello FabFree Readers!  Have you checked out the new round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room? A brand new round as just begun and there are so many wonderful and affordable items to pick up as well as two free group gifts sitting on either side of the main doors.

What’s Free You Say?

One of the two group gifts that you can pick up with your free Cosmopolitan Sales Room group tag is the Efuli Top by Elegance Boutique!  This metallic leather halter top gives just a little peek of hmmm what’s the word for it…  underboob?  bottom breast?  Take your pick lol, but it’s a nice little peek without showing off too much of the girls.  It does however display your entire belly, so don’t go blaming me if you aren’t comfortable with unsuspecting belly raspberries that may come your way.

This seductive little black and red top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer.  Pair it up with a black skirt or slacks and you’ll be ready to go this Saturday night!

In Fine Feather

Snapshot_001
Hello FabFree! In my neck of the RL woods, the sun is shining and it’s beginning to warm up! While there is still snow trying to melt away, the birds are chirping at each other once again.  I am sure this is just a little tease of spring, but I’ll allow it to trick me just this one time so the birds and  I can enjoy it.

As Light As A Feather

The delicate and whispy pink gown you see me pictured in, if you can believe it…  is a free gift at The 30L Saturday Event.  This stunning anniversary gift comes in one fitmesh size which should fit most avatars.  You can find this beauty at the Belle Epoque display in a little pink jar with the price set to 0L.

For The Birds

My little feathered friend is courtesy of ENIIPose as they have set out their “I Love The Nature” pose as a free SL Frees & Offers group gift.  It includes a rezzable pose ball, the bird and berries.  The SLF&O group is free to join.

I hope you are enjoying your day too :).

High Tides And Good Vibes

High Tides n Good Vibes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  After my last post {HERE}, Ripley and I returned to Brii Underground’s Surf Girl Hunt and did some more sleuthing.  As a youngster, I loved collecting seashells, and this hunt revived childhood memories of trips to the shore with my family.  Under my parents’ watchful eyes, I would traipse up and down the beach, plastic pail in hand, gathering my briny “treasures.”

A Casual Outfit You Will Treasure

After I pried open the clam shell from Brii Underground, I uncovered the Leidiane Beach Outfit, which was perfect for a day of beach combing.  A pair of denim shorts and an island themed, cropped t-shirt, complete with palm trees, gulls, and crashing waves form the basis of the costume.  To ward off the brisk ocean breezes, a dark blue, plaid over shirt completes the look.  This is definitely the type of clothing I would choose for a weekend get away in real life – comfortable and carefree.  Since I have a habit of wading out into the water to gather the perfect mollusk for my collection, I chose to slip on flip flops rather than the light blue platform sneakers which are part of the hunt gift.  For only 1 little Linden dollar, you get a complete look packed inside that tiny shell!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh outfits for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Leidiane Platform Sneakers (not shown)
  • Omega applier with make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light (not shown)

Sadly, those precious days with my parents are now only in the past.  Lost in memories and nostalgia as I listened to the crashing ocean waves, I was glad to have my loyal pupster by my side.  When I am feeling blue, there is no greater comfort than the silent, devoted companionship of my sweet boy.  Until my next post, fabulous readers, happy shopping hunting!
