Bright Eyes, Blue Denim

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulouses!  He’s stuck at work on this glorious warm spring day, while I have the day off ;).   Of course I’d rather we had the day off together, but I decided I’d try and make the best of it and head out to the park nearby this afternoon to enjoy the splendors of spring that I have been so missing over the long winter, like the smell of green grass, and flowers.. and the tickle of butterflies!

While I have your attention here, I have some exciting free hair news today as well as a little tidbit to share with you about a sweet summer denim dress I found as a group gift.

The Astonishing Truth

I’m sure you don’t need me to say it again… but I will… I’m a big fan of Truth Hair.  I wear it quite often on the blog, and inworld.  I was so excited to see that with his new group gift for May called Kare, he has updated his textures with more gloss and shine and has also included a Hairstylist HUD that allows you to shift the hair around your shoulders a few different ways – which is fantastic because there will be no more interfering with collars and jackets!!  This group has a one time fee of 350L to join, but seriously…  a whole fatpack of awesome hair every month…  Nuff said!

Never underestimate the power of a little denim dress

It’s a little tough to see in the photo above, so I took a few minutes and snapped another angle so you could see the Camilla Dress in Sky Denim that you can pick up as a free group gift at TRS Designs.  This group is free to join and there are multiple gifts to score.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Aim For Wow

Aim For Wow 1

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I continued our journey along The Flowerage Hunt 2’s prize trail.  Even though he suffered some nasty scratches after our encounter with the clowder of felines (you can read about that adventure {HERE}), Ripley’s talented nose was still able to sniff out the female hunt gift at Sparrow by Design.   Hooray for tracking dogs! Sparrow by Design’s generous designer didn’t leave out the guys in The Flowerage Hunt 2.  Carson blogged the male gift in his post {HERE}.

Sunshine On My Shoulders

The Emily dress features a halter-style neckline, and a pretty blue and green floral print splashed across a white background.  Its dark belt calls attention to your slender waistline, and a silver metal ring adds a pop of shine.  This summery frock left my shoulders free to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine, while the loop around my neck made sure the sleeveless dress stayed in place.  This little number is perfect for an afternoon of shopping, but with the right accessories, it is easily glammed up for a date night.  One nice feature is that the gift package includes a white, cropped, quilted jacket that you could add when the sun starts to set, and the air becomes a bit chilly.  Since it was a lovely, warm spring day, I opted not to wear it for my photo shoot, but I was comforted in knowing it was there should I need it.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (plus alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Aim For WOW 2

The Wow Factor

My Catwa mesh head applier is the May gift for members of the Wow Skins group.  With beautifully arched, dark eyebrows, and a clear, fresh complexion, this skin is flawless, and lovely.  A HUD with 6 shades ranging from Milk to Caffe’ is included.  I chose the Tan shade, and I just love the sweet, glowing finish on this skin.  I experimented with eyeliner and lipstick appliers, and had terrific success, so if you are looking for a date-ready appearance, this applier works well with added make up for a glamorous touch.  (In my pictures, I am wearing no make up).  The WOW group costs 450L to join, but if you are already a member, I’d highly encourage you to scoop up this stunning group gift.

Time for a Little TCF

Maye & TCF
Hello Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. So I decided to take some of Love’s advice from her recent post “Finally… FaMESHed” about entering an event and I am happy to report that I was able to get into the Anniversary round of The Chapter Four. Given the meager abilities of my little laptop, I knew it would be a task to manage the event. Still, the gifts were completely worth the time I spent camera-shopping for the little pink TCF Anniversary gift boxes. I’m just going to tell you now, there are tons of gifts. I’m not even sure I picked them all up, but I gave it a good try. To get the gifts at each vendor, you’ll need to be wearing your The Chapter Four group tag. Currently there is a paltry group join fee of 50 lindens. I know that’s not what everyone likes to hear, in my opinion however, it’s well worth it just for these TCF Anniversary gifts. That said, this will the first, of at least two, maybe three posts showing off my favorites of all the fantastic gifts. I want to make sure you get a good preview, so you won’t feel so bad about that group join fee. First, let’s talk about this pretty face.

It’s Gonna Be Maye

Freckles always win in my book. These freckles are courtesy of the May group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The aptly named Maye skin comes in Omega appliers for the head and body, in the tones Sand and Apricot. If freckles aren’t your thing, there’s a non freckled version in both tones as well. You will need to join the 7 Deadly Skins group to get your May group gift. The group has a one time join fee of 225 lindens, and there are monthly gifts available for men and women.

Flowers For Your Hair

Starting from the top so to speak, this pretty floral hair wreath is the FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Cheveux. The flower crown comes in this single color, and can be resized via touch menu. Also in the package you’ll find a demo for the Cheveux hair pictured in the ad.

Ribbon For Your Neck

The cute little ribbon choker is another FREE TCF gift. This one is from .BF. and it comes with a color change hud with several solid colors for the ribbon only. There’s also a separate hud for adjusting the size. It gives you a great amount of control over the choker’s size so you can get an exact fit.

Polish For Your Nails

If you’ve been looking for a solid collection of pretty nail appliers all in one hud, it’s waiting for you at TCF. The FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Aleutia is a manicure set with 30 separate beautiful colors. That is not a typo, there are 30 colors to choose from. There are 3 separate huds included, one for Slink hands, one for Maitreya hands, and one for Belleza hands.

A Cute Top to Tie it All Together

And finally, for now, this bright colorful crop top is the FREE TCF gift from GATO. I love the bright colors! Fortunately and unfortunately the top is a Maitreya applier only. No other appliers or classic  layers are included.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Peaceful

Peaceful

That time of the night…

Bedtime…. This is the time of the night when I’m at my most peaceful. “Good nights” and “sweet dreams” have been said and it’s time to turn in.The doors are locked and the dog is waiting for me to crawl under the covers before she hops up to her favorite spot at the foot of the bed. My peaceful look come by way of House of Ruby. The Peaceful Boxers and Tank is the 1L hunt gift for the Peace By Peace Hunt. The form-fitting look is due to the fact that this is an applier outfit. Appliers come in both Omega and Slink and the tank and boxers can be worn together (as shown) or as separates.  (To be totally honest, I never thought I’d get the hang of appliers, but it’s easy-peasey) All gifts on the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L and the hunt runs all month long. Goodnigzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
