Under An April Sky

Under An April Sky

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a quick Sunday evening post about a free unisex necklace that you can pick up as a group gift at Amias.  This choker features three beads suspended on a dark gray cord, which softly reflect sunlight with a subtle gleam.  The simple design of this accessory provides just the right touch to finish off an outfit.  Male and female versions are tucked inside the package, so ladies, this one’s for you, too!  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate the Amias group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.  There are also two other group gifts on the wall, but these are just for the gals.

I’m off to scour the grid for more fashion finds for men.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ali & Ali Designs

Ali & Ali Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry I’ve been so absent as of late. I’m gearing up for a move in RL and it is taking not only my focus but most of my energy. I cannot wait to be settled and back into a normal routine. I hate being away, I miss you guys! That said I did manage a little bit of time to share with you the designer of the week, Ali & Ali Designs.

As most of you probably know, Ali & Ali is a hair shop that has been part of the Second Life experience for quite a while. What you might not know is that Ali & Ali also has a small selection of clothing, shoes, and even business scripts! There’s really a lot to see and shop for at Ali & Ali. At the main entrance you’ll notice there’s even a convenient teleport board with quite a few store “departments” that you can teleport to for convenient shopping. Still, the main Attraction at Ali & Ali is the hair. There are male styles as well as the female styles, there are also beards. Ali & Ali also caters nicely to the Classic Avatars in that they still offer non-mesh styles along with mesh, and they have a set of free tattoo layer hair bases available on the information desk just inside the entrance.

Ali & Ali Front Desk
The Ali & Ali information desk is really the hub of the store. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything and everything Ali & Ali related. There are also helpful fairies around the store that you can click for help and additional information. Also at the desk are the current free Ali & Ali group gifts. There is one for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. The Ali & Ali group is free to join at this time. I added a close up of the teleport board so you can get a better look at all Ali & Ali has to offer.Ali & Ali Lucky Gifts

Speaking of offers, just to the left of the desk you’ll find the exclusive Ali & Ali male and female gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Finally, as you shop through the multiple floors of the Ali & Ali store, you’ll see the occasional lucky letter chair and a few mini mania type boards. I put up some examples of what to look for, however the boards and chair shown are not the only ones. Don’t forget, there are male prizes as well as female ones. Also I noticed that at least a few of the boards did not seem to require a group to participate. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Free As A Bird

FabFree: Turquoise (Take 2)Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I hope you have been enjoying your weekend!  The weather is so nice here (aside from the wind and allergies…  I just have to deal with that lol) that I have been able to spend a lot of my weekend outside in the garden, but I still made time pop inworld to take you under my wing and show you where to find a couple of really great free items.

She was a lovely bird

I’m going to start off by telling you about this beautiful tattoo called Lovely Bird which I found as a free group gift at Carol G.  This tattoo comes in four different fades and includes a ton of applier options.  The Carol G. group is currently 130L to join, but here are several group gifts to pick up making the fee worth your while.

Tattoo Appliers Included:

  • Belleza
  • Bento Vista
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • TMP

A Perfect Match

While I was on my search for something to co-ordinate with the pretty colours in this tattoo, I remembered that DM has the Nanda Set that includes the crochet bikini top and long beachy skirt as a free group gift for joining the No Cabide inworld group.  The included texture change HUD allows for 5 different skirt options (prints and solids) and 5 different bikini top colours as well.  You could mix and match these two items for days!  The No Cabide inworld group is free to join, making this 100% free!

Sizes Included:

  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya Experimental (worked great on my mine!)

C’est La Vie

La Vie

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday!  As you can see, Ripley and I had a lazy morning over on the La Vie sim today.  I tossed some crumbs to this adorable gaggle of geese while the pupster supervised, making sure no Ripley snack pieces were in the mix.  What a lovely way to start the day!

As Luck Would Have It

Yesterday, I shared a group gift that I had picked up over at Zoom Design.  When I went back to the store to pick up the landmark for my post, I happened to glance over at the group only Lucky Boards, and was thrilled to see a “K” appear.  Quick as a wink, I tapped the board, and became the proud new owner of this Gizele Outfit.  The free package included a separate crop top, skirt, and four texture color change HUD.  I chose the black floral design, but could have gone with solid black, solid brown or a brown floral pattern.  The top includes lacing which criss-crosses through golden eyelets; it’s sexy, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The skirt reaches to almost knee length and features a slit in the side.  In the photo, it appears like there are two slits, but that is an illusion created by the sit position – there is actually just one slit on the left side.  Sorry about that, but I just love the romantic nature of the pose in the swing, so I opted to go with this photo, and explain about the skirt.  To pick up a copy of this sweet outfit for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Zoom Designs group tag, and cross your fingers.  Hopefully your special letter will appear quickly!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

New Tresses

On Friday, I received a group notice from the Olive VIP group regarding a new release, so I popped over to the shop to take a look.  While there, I scooped up some of the VIP gift hairs on the shelf and noticed the Aries style, which is part of the Zodiac Collection.  This gorgeous, full, side-parted, shoulder length style frames the face in luxurious waves.  The free gift package for group members includes a FULL fat pack of color options, so it’s a wonderful treat.  Also on the shelf, you’ll find the newest group gift, an updo called Skee, as well as a variety of other free items.  If you are not a group member, you can purchase the Aries Zodiac Collection at the store.

The crumbs have all been gobbled up, the geese have dispersed, and Ripley is giving me that “I’m STARVING!” look with his deep chocolate eyes.  He WAS a good boy, and made no move to “share” the breadcrumbs with the birds, so it’s time to head on home, and reward his model behavior.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

The weather has been a little crazy where I live lately – cold in the mornings and hot in the afternoons. For me… the temperature change is just plain uncomfortable and impossible to dress to go outside for. So I’d much rather stay inside and curl up with a good book. Right now, my guilty pleasure is a Laurell K. Hamilton novel… shhh don’t tell anyone, but I love the Anita Blake series!

Yup, I’m getting old.

And that means I need reading glasses. Luckily, AstroidBox has me covered with some extremely stylish ones that are absolutely free. These silver framed beauties will only cost you a group space and they are aptly named “serpent” frames as they have a snake on the sides. The detailing is terrific and they are also resizable. I love, love, love these! Pick them up while you have the chance!

An unexpected surprise.

I stopped by Crom to pick up the latest group gift and was surprised by a special promo. There are three free to all gifts out that you can buy for 0L. I am wearing one of them, the Elizabeth White shirt, in the picture above. Pick up all three of these gifts before they disappear. No group required. If you want the group gift, you can nab that too. The Crom group is free to join. I also slapped the subscriber while I was there and was rewarded with a pretty free dress just for subscribing! Lots of gifts, one stop!

Gift Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
