Feels Like Monday

EnticeMMOpen

This morning started out great!

I woke up to a brand new “Let it Snow” Outfit auto sent to me for FREE as the Midnight Mania Board at Entice I slapped yesterday had locked down.  I put it on all in one click, no muss no fuss and was even able express my own personal style with the colours a little due to the texture change HUD that was included.  All I had to dig out of my pixel closet was a pair of boots, because even the jacket was part of the prize!  The mitten pockets are OH so cute!

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Fit

I was at an all time high until…

Oh crap… I forgot my library books and had to go back from them.  Now I think I missed the bus…  AND I think I have Mr. C for study hall this afternoon.  That guy never lets us get away with anything!  It feels like Monday all over again…  At least I look good 😉

Note:  There are two midnight mania boards at Entice.  This one in particular is open to all.  The other one, you’ll need to join the group for.  It’s  too – I’ll show it off soon 🙂

What Do I Want to Eat?

What Do I Want to Eat?

I happens to the best of us…

You go to the fridge and stare blankly at what’s inside, trying to decide what you want to eat or if what you want is even in there. Deciding meals have been more difficult for me lately as I want all the things I am no longer supposed to eat because it isn’t good for me. Tell my body that, because sometimes the cravings overcome my dietary needs. Today’s gift is not a wearable, but a furnishing for your SL home. The Chalk Fridge is this month’s group gift at KraftWork, located on one of my favorite sims, The Last Forever. Even though it doesn’t open, it will add a distinctive look to your kitchen area, or even your man cave. Although the group gift is FREE to members, the group does have a joining fee of 25L. But, there are several other gifts available as well. My pose today is by {Way} . The Cristano R. 03 is just 15L, one of several poses available for that price.

Heck with it, I’m going for the ice cream sammich!

You Looking At My Bum?

Snapshot_001
Good morning Fabulouses :).  These amazing new jeans by Dead Dollz with butt hoisting technology have been causing quite a stir on the grid.  I had to bring my furry body guard with me when I was out and about today just to keep the boys back!

#RLgoals #butthoistingtechnology #bestjeansever

I have made it a real life goal of mine to FIND THESE JEANS… for my real self!  The little hearts are so sweet. Until I can find them in the real world, I can enjoy them here in Second Life.  In fact, all of you Maitreya Mesh Body wearers can too if you like – for FREE, because they are a free group gift when you are a member of the Dead Dollz inworld group.  This group will set you back 250L, but the few gifts a year are always of fantastic quality, and honestly…  I’d pay 250L for just these jeans.

Note:  Maitreya size only, and don’t blame me if you can’t stop looking at your own bum.  Blame Dead Dollz!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Not a Walk in the Park

Not a Walk in the Park

Just a normal stroll….

I have mentioned previously that I’ve been taking daily walks to improve my fitness and get my 6 pack back after a summer of leisure. What I have failed to mentions is that most of my walks on my days off are at the nearby cemetery. I figured I could walk through it or lay down in it for a dirt nap. It isn’t nearly as spooky as the one behind me, nut then again, I don’t walk there after dark…

Run, Don’t Walk…

There are only a few days left in the month and until the end of the AHG Autumnal Hunt 2017This dollarbie hunt is for the Aesthetic Body, but some of the gifts look good on the other body types as well. Today’s look is the hunt gift found at !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. The complete outfit, consisting of  the Aesthetic Sweater, Jeans and White Beige Loafers can be yours if you find the ear of corn hunt item.

Enjoy your evening stroll…. ewww… I feel like someone just walked over a grave… oh, that was just me…

One Year Later…

One Year Later...

Hello Fabulouses!  Well, it’s hard to believe it, but this week marks one year of blogging with Fab Free!  So much has happened in the past year for me in RL, but what hasn’t changed is how much I love blogging and sharing my adventures with Ripley.  I truly enjoy seeking out Fabulous Finds, and want to thank our wonderful readers for their support.  Reading your comments really makes my day!  I feel so blessed to be a part of the Fab Free team, and look forward to continuing to write far into the future.

Just Bluetiful…

Today, I am sporting the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of the Third Life Group.  The Lounge Outfit features a soft blue and white striped top with a knotted hemline, and long, comfy, stretchy pants – perfect for a lazy day.  I seriously would LOVE to wear this outfit in real life!  It offers a scooped neckline, white cuffs on the sleeves, and a coordinating white waistband on the pants.  Since the gift contains classic mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, it is sure to fit just about anyone.  The pants run long, and I wasn’t able to get my flat feet to work with them, but my high foot style was just right.  The outfit is worn as a complete set, so you can’t mix and match with other wardrobe components, but I thought the top and the pants were ideally suited for each other.  Although the Third Life Group has a 10L join fee, there are many goodies available for group members from a variety of designers, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

A Lucky Hair Day

Ripley and I decided to check out a new-to-us hair shop today called Mello, and I’m so glad we did!  Right in the entry way, there are 12 Lucky Boards for anyone, and 6 members-only boards packed with a variety of cute hairstyles.  Since joining the group was completely free, I decided to go for it, and see what happened.  Sure enough, that magical “K” appeared on one of the group-only boards, and I gleefully scooped up the Jaded hairstyle in “Blondies.”  After doing a little happy dance, I teleported on home to try out my prize.  Ripley took one look, and wagged his tail happily with approval.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover the gift included a texture HUD packed with 16 options.  This is sure to become one of my “go-to” hairstyles.

The Real Pupster

The Pupster

Because I mention him so often in my blog posts, I thought you might like a peek at the real-life pupster.  He’s my pride and joy, and such a good boy!  Thank you again, wonderful readers, for your support over the past 12 months.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Can’t Sleep

Can't Sleep
Hello there Fab Free’rs! Sorry to have been a little absent lately, I’m sure you all know how it is when real life decides to get in the way.  That said, I have been a little tired and I think I’m due for a day of doing nothing. In preparation for my day of well nothing I picked up the latest group gift for Fab Free group members at Satus Inc. The gift from Satus Inc. matches perfectly with these inexpensive tube socks from Classy Chics on the Marketplace. I also picked up the perfect pillows for lounging around at Zen Creations.

Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap!

This over sized pajama shirt is a FREE gift at Satus Inc. for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. An over-sized shirt is my favorite lazy day lounge wear. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. To get your gift, head over to Satus Inc. and wear your Fab Free group tag. Then just click the gift vendor. The shirt reads “Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap” and I have to tell you I often agree with that statement!

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, FitMesh (XS – XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

Sleepy Pillows

These whimsical throw pillows are a current group gift at Zen Creations. Each pillow can change color via touch, and can be displayed together as shown or individually. The Zen Creations group is also FREE to join at this time. You’ll need to wear the Zen Creations group tag to get this FREE set of pillows.

Tube Socks

I secretly hope that tube socks never go out of style. Maybe they were never in style in the first place. Either way these socks are perfect for a day of do-nothing-ness. These socks are from a shop called Classy Chics on the Marketplace. They come as a Maitreya applier only for just 25 lindens. The hud has six color variations, five of which are white sock with colored stripes, and one black sock with white stripes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

My Bad Dog

My Bad Dog

 

The Bark is Worse Than the Bite…

In my dog Angel’s mind, this is how she appears to others. Big, mean, protective, and ferocious. But in reality she is a 25 pound Sish Tzu/Poodle mix. Her most dangerous weapon, her tongue that will lick your face clean if she likes you. I’ll let her believe what she wants. Don’t tell her otherwise. Today, I’ll start out with the pose. My Bad Dog comes by way of Enipose. This pose is a 25L promotional item that can be purchased for this price at the inworld store only. And yes, the dog is included.

A BIG Hunt….

I previously covered the Aesthetics Spring Hunt, and even though the body style is not for me, you can still make the most of some of the items to be found on the AHG Autumnal Hunt 2017. I discovered that with a little tweaking of your shape, you can make the Aesthetic made clothing work fairly well with the non Aesthetic Body. (TIP: Remember to “save as” and rename the shape so you can switch back and forth between the shape that looks best) I found the Summer Trousers and Shirt dollarbie hunt gift at Boyberry .  The AHG Autumnal Hunt 2017 only runs until the end of September, so run, don’t walk to the participating stores.
