Monday is Cancelled

Oh, hey there… you found me.

Yeah, I’m still sitting here drinking my coffee. To be honest, I was completely unable to adult today. Sure, I had tons of stuff to do, but I didn’t get any of it done. I’ll be sorry tomorrow. :-/

But for now, I just gonna sit here quietly and enjoy my coffee.

Coffee and Comfort

I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything done today soon as I put on this cozy outfit. The Parka Dress is the latest group gift from S@BBiA, and it comes in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer. I love not having to make decisions – like what size to wear – early in the morning.

To keep my feet toasty, I added the Baby It’s Cold Outside boots from Entice. You can pick up a pair for free by joining the SL Frees & Offers in-world group. The boots come in rigged and unrigged versions with an alpha layer so they should fit just about everyone.

Ok, I guess it’s time to pack it up and go inside. In the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all, tomorrow is another day.” 🙂

Just a Boho Girl and Her Pup

Just a Girl and Her Dog
Hello Fabulouses!  Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend must never have owned a dog.  Ripley brings me far more joy than any jewel ever could….although I do have to admit that a diamond wouldn’t have outrageous vet bills………  Aww, don’t worry boy, you’re still my #1!

Speaking of the Number 1…

Yesterday in my post {HERE} I highlighted a lovely dress that I picked up from Brii Underground for a song.  What I didn’t tell you at that time was that there are quite a few goodies at the store, all available for just one Linden dollar.  My beautiful boho outfit is one of them.  From the jeweled headband and accessories, to the hemline of my maxi skirt, the Mireia outfit includes everything I’m wearing.  I love the realistic texture of the cropped tank top, and the way its hue is echoed in the pattern of the skirt.  Raspberry and teal always look so delicious together!  The generous designer thought of everything you need for this complete outfit, including feathered earrings, a necklace, and a slender bow to accentuate your waistline.  There’s even a pair of sunglasses and a make up applier that I opted not to wear.  The lovely floral tattoo is also tucked inside the package.  I don’t normally wear body art, but this one was just too pretty to pass up.  To add Mireia to your inventory, teleport over to the shop, and locate the vendor in the 1L section on the front wall.  There’s no group required!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh skirt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Fit mesh top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Tattoo applier for classic avatars as well as Maitreya and Omega
  • Omega Make Up Applier for Catwa Head

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Slipping into Winter

11-20-2017

Seasons Change …Quickly!

I logged out to a nice Autumn scene, with leaves on the still green grass and a crispness in the air. I log back in a few hours later to find it had snowed and I’m slipping on the frozen ground. I happened to snap this quick shot before I fell right on my pixels….

Slick… Looking

At least I’m dressed for the weather in the FREE November group gift from R2A Creations. In this month’s gift you’ll find a Sweater, Jeans, Boots and a Cap.  This outfit comes fitted for the ADAM, Aesthetic, Signature, Slink and TMP bodies as well as XS-XL for classic bodies. The R2A Group is FREE to join and always has a monthly gift.

Now… Can someone please come over and shovel my walk?

True Colours

When I’m feeling playful, I always reach out for some bright colours to wear.  You really can’t beat a pastel hair colour, and some hot pink.  Luckily, these generous SL creators have got my back!  My sweet do’ was a gift at Hairology, and was previously blogged by Pru HERE.

Hot in Hot Pink

Safira has a few free group gifts out right now, and one of them is this bright and cheerful jumpsuit.  It comes in a shiny midnight blue as well, for the days when you’re feeling only slightly less exuberant.  The Safira group is free to join, and there are quite a few nice group gifts in the store.  It’s definitely worth the visit!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The North Star

Cae has a birthday gift out right now to celebrate 5 years of pretty jewelry in Second Life.  The North Star bracelet features super cute silver stars that encircle your wrist, and a larger silver charm adorned with blue gems.  Very delicate!  The group is currently 100 Linden to join, and you can find the group gift in the notices section of the group profile.  I’ve included a closeup below so you can see the detailing.

Ok Fab Free – go light up the world with those bright colours!

What’s In Your SL Wallet?

NunoHey FabFree! It’s time to check under those couch cushions and scrape up some all the little lindens you can find because N-Uno has some big sales going on in their Marketplace Store, and when I say sales…  I don’t mean 100L, or 75L or even 50L…  I MEAN 1L!

ENTIRE FATPACKS FOR 1L!

Infact almost everything is priced at 1L so you can shop for hours on a handful of change!  The best way to make your lindens go farther is to skip the single outfits first and go straight for the fatpacks, and then go back to the main marketplace link for other single items that are not sold in fatpacks.  Below you will find first a link to the marketplace store, and then below it you will find a link to just the fatpack items, so you can easily skip over the singles and get more bang for your buck.  Again..  make sure you check out the whole store though – as some items are only sold in singles.

Mama Mia, What A Deal!

In my photo above, you will find me wearing three items from the N-Uno Marketplace store that I picked up for 1L each in full fatpacks.  The Mia Bodysuit, Skirt and Jacket (animated to keep your arms in!) all come in five standard mesh sizes with alpha layers.  Their vendor ad is shown below to give you an idea of fabric textures included.

Listen to the Mandolin Rain

Mandolin Rain

Hello Fabulouses!  When I first moved to my location in RL, I was so happy to leave gray skies behind.  Now, however, although I do appreciate the near-constant sunshine, I have come to cherish our rare rainy days.  They offer a welcome respite from the blazing sun, and a bit of variety to the same-old, same-old.  Second Life seems to be a lot like my RL location in that you rarely encounter rain, so when Ripley and I came across a patch of rainfall in the Mystical Fae Forest, it seemed a perfect place to snap a photo.

Trimmed in Lace

My beautiful Leikela dress from Brii Underground is a special offer for only 1 little Linden dollar.  Featuring a black mini dress with lace accents, this frock is sophisticated and simply stunning.  The off-the-shoulder fit offers a glimpse of smooth skin on your shoulders, but complete coverage where you need it.  I really like the slit in the skirt panel, which makes walking a breeze.  The package includes a coordinating pair of heels, and versions for both classic and mesh avatars.  To scoop up a copy for yourself, head over to the shop, and turn toward the front wall.  Leikela sits to the right of the group gifts collection.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sometimes (Real) Life Gets in the Way

11-19-17

Oh, Hey!

Sorry to have been MIA for most of November, but this month has been a total b!$@h. Real life just kept my attention way too much to get anything else accomplished. I want to thank my fellow bloggers for keeping busy finding great free finds and a warm (although late) welcome to Aline. I’ll stick my toe back in the proverbial blogging pool and test the waters…

Updates and Pixel Odor…

I was delighted when I actually had a bit of free time to find that both my head and mesh body had updates. (I can’t wait to wiggle my fingers) 🙂 It was also pointed out to me that I had been wearing the same outfit for over three weeks and it was starting to smell (can pixels smell?)  So I decided to leave the sanctuary in the clouds and hit a few stores.

This Jacket doesn’t Smell…

I stopped by Resun Fashions to check out the November group gift for guys. This month’s gift is the Dennis Jacket and Shirt combo. The shirt comes fitted for the ADAM, Aesthetic, Slink and TMP bodies as well as standard sizes XS-XL. This gift is FREE to Resun members and the group is FREE to join. I hope to be back soon with more fabulous freebies and remember… Christmas and all the presents that go along with it is just around the corner…

Playful in Patchwork

RIRLifeGGWestEndFFGG

Hey, maybe you need this one too

A little while back, Serena showed you the Lagenlook Pants and Barlot Top by RIR Life that you could pick up as a gift at The Boho Culture Fair in her Desert Boho blog post, and if you loved the free spirited set as much as I did, you can also head on over to the RIR Life store and pick up a copy of the same set in the Brown Fantasy print which is a playful patchwork pattern as a group gift for joining their RIR Life group too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Know all your angles

The Angles Pose Collection by West End was recently announced as a free FabFree group gift, and the pose I am using today is just one of five of the unique poses in the pack.  I love trying out different angles, and this pose set will be a lot of fun to work with!

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.
