Coffee Contemplations

Coffee Contemplation

Summer Cabin Fever…

Who would have thought I’d be going stir crazy in my own house in the middle of summer?  I don’t count my numerous travels to appointments as relaxing outside time, but I am finding excuses to venture out just for a change of scenery. I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with my Kindle in hand just to feel the sun on my face and hear the morning birds sing.  I’ve been taking evening walks at a local walking path, and even dragging walking the dog when I’m up to it. All these things give me a sense of normalcy.

Take a walk and shop….

I took a walk (virtually speaking) down to The Wash for the Cart Sale. There are many items on display for guys with nothing over 10L.  It officially doesn’t start until tomorrow, but most vendors have booths up and running.  I picked out and outfit from the selection of men’s clothing to choose from. I always make sure I stop at the Dark Water Designs cart for some inexpensive clothing pieces. This round of the Cart Sale has three different layered shirt prints and I chose the Palm Leaf Layered Shirt. I matched it with the Faded Tan Cargo Shorts, each just 10L. I also looked through the selection of shoes at Poeme. Although the fitted sneakers are for women, there are a few patterns that could be considered unisex and using the unrigged version, I made it easily fit my man sized feet. I chose the Happy Blue Canvas Chucks, also just 10L.

Rest and catch my breath…

After all that walking I needed to sit down. Lucky for me I was near the Park Place Home Decor cart and found a Bright Director’s Chair, another 10L find. This chair comes with many sits for both males and females. It also has animations for drinking coffee or wine and even provides the drinks. I’ll just sit here for a bit and watch the passersby while i catch my breath. I hope to see you down at The Wash Cart Sale that (offically) begins tomorrow and runs through July 5th.

Somewhere Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path 1

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Some days, you need to take a detour off the beaten path, and that’s just what Ripley and I did this morning.  Not only did we discover a cool, green forest sprinkled with wildflowers, we also picked up a budget-friendly outfit to share with you.

Just a Dollar?  You Bet!

For only one little Linden dollar, I scooped up the C’est la Vie maxi skirt and bra top outfit at Mirus Designs.   There are two options available at the shop: the blue that I chose to wear today, and a black version, both priced at only 1L.  The texture of the fabric is well done, with a subtle sheen, and realistic folds.  The line separating the folds in my picture was caused by my pose; it doesn’t appear when you wear the outfit in normal use.  The skirt features a waist panel with decorative stitching, and a white string tied in a bow.  I really like the way the skirt drapes down to my toes.  The outfit includes a coordinating bra top with white stitching, and a halter style neckline with narrow straps.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

Here’s a front view so you can see how beautifully the two pieces blend together to create this playful, casual summer outfit.

Off the Beaten Path 2

Ripley and I plan to do a lot more exploring today.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Don’t Get Up

Snapshot_007
This is exactly what my RL dog does when he doesn’t want me to get up. He’ll just lay across me, so I can’t easily move in hopes that I don’t bother.  Fortunately my RL dog is much smaller than my SL variety.

Previously on FabFree…

Heads Up!

Heads Up

If you’ve been wanting to try out a bento mesh head… BUT haven’t wanted to spend the large amount of lindens that the new bento heads can cost? Boy do I have the deal for you! AK Creations is giving an anniversary gift not to be missed!

Heads up!

If you are a group member of AK Creations, you can buzz on down to the store and pick up your Lulu bento mesh head free with your group tag. If you’re not a member, join the group for 150L to get in on the deal. That’s a small fee for a bento mesh head.

The gift package includes:

  • The Lulu head in versions 2.5 and 2.6
  • An alpha
  • A set of mesh teeth
  • A bento shape (shown worn in the picture)
  • And Body appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP (in a single box that you have to open… all the appliers are inside that one box).

I purchased an Omega relay for the AK head for just 99L off the marketplace (there is a link on the wall near the heads inside the store to take you directly to the marketplace link) and was able to then wear a skin I already had inside my inventory — one of my favorite Lumae skins that was Omega ready. It looks great with the AK bento head in my opinion!

Hurry and get your AK Creations group gift bento head while you can… and let the guys know too, because there is a guy’s version of the gift out for them as well!
