A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Sailor Prudence

Sailor PruIt’s Cos-play time! One thing I never tire of, even as an adult, is playing dress-up. Maybe that’s why I enjoy blogging so much. I get to play dress up regularly. Recently I came across this super cute Sailor Moon inspired outfit from Milk Tea. The shorts and top set is the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt gift at Milk Tea, and you can hunt it down and claim it for just one linden. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in system layers and includes omega appliers, a Lolas applier, a Belleza applier, and a “Combo” applier. Needless to say, it’s got quite a few options! To add to this playful outfit I found a cute little compact on the Marketplace. This crescent moon shaped compact is by Ity and is FREE on the Marketplace. Next, the moment I saw the FREE gift from ZOZ at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I had to have it for this outfit! The nail palate gift from ZOZ comes with a pretty array of slick blue polishes. Now all I need is a good convention to go to, and I’ll be set!

Have Fun, here are the details!

Princess for a day

Princess for a dayI have 3 dresses fit for a Princess weather you like mesh or system layers I have something for every Princess today. So lets have a trip thru the castle on this lovely Saturday!

I started my morning wandering thru the castle in the divine Jewel periwinkle mesh dress that is a FREE subscriber gift at The Crystal Clothing Company. That is right this Princess didn’t even have to give up a group spot for this dress. Tho should you also like to join their FREE group you can pick up this dress in pink too. Every Princess has to have a tiara and I found a grand deal on mp for this dainty ^^Swallow^^ tiara, 1L 3 colors! It fits perfectly on top of this FREE gift from Amacci Hair. Alva is a lovely tight bun with a full color hud and it totally FREE no group to join.

Princess for a day

The garden looked so lovely I had to wander out there for a stroll in this delicate mesh dress that I found at JLZ fashion it is there prize for The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. I opted to hunt for the scroll which meant this dress only set me back 1L. You have the other option of buying it without hunting for 25L. It is a good deal either way. Btw I did kiss the frog and alas he didn’t turn into my Prince, maybe next time!

Princess for a day

Having changed for the 3rd time this Princess is ready to retire into the study in this beautiful system layer dress which is the FREE GG over at The White Armory (TWA) this week. But today is the last day so while staying poised rush over there right now! The group is FREE to join and there is a new GG every sunday so if you miss this dress grab the next one it will be equally pretty. This is a group worth staying in, here is another example why from Pru. The furniture is another prize from The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. You can pick up the whole set for 1L or 25L at Lilith’s Den.

Aloha Bettie

Aloha

Hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely feeling the summer heat! In need of some fun in the sun, I made a trip to the Aloha Fair and was not disappointed. Not only is the Aloha Fair nestled in a beautiful tropical location, there are tons of dollarbie Aloha Fair gifts to be had from the participating merchants. I have to say I’m more than just a little impressed with the generosity of the Aloha Fair gift from Brii Underground.

The Brii Underground Aloha Fair gift is this complete outfit. For just 1 linden, you get the mesh romper, matching shoes, hair flower, sunglasses, and a tattoo (not shown). The mesh romper comes in standard sizing, and the tattoo (not pictured) comes in regular system layers, as well as a Wowmeh applier, and a Slink applier.

Next I picked up this too adorable tote from Knockers. Also an Aloha Fair gift, this dollarbie tote comes in 2 versions, one with magazines showing and one without. Also, each version comes with a right or left hold for versatility. Sometimes the accessories really make the outfit. Not to mention, how cute are these flamingos?!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers

Sometimes, we all need a week at home and a little snuggling and “me” time… but really, this entire post was inspired by a chance encounter…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [1]

So it was Fifty Linden Friday and I landed at Sway’s to pick up their deal of the day when I noticed they had out this gorgeous FREE gift! A rainbow heart couch with single sits and LBGT cuddle sits and it’s only two prims. You don’t need a group and you just pick it up courtesy of their store for FREE! I won’t get into politics, but it hit close to home and is a cause close to my heart, so I snatched up the gift and decided, this would be the “heart” of my post for the week (yes pun intended!)

Later I happened to be at on9 when I noticed they had some fabulous gifties out for visitors. There are several items out, and the group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. I picked up the clutch in mango but there were also several lovely mesh dresses and some accessories as well!

And let’s not forget that the Hair Fair ends today! Don’t miss your last chance to get the great gifts that are just there waiting for you!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [2]

Astrid is sporting this sexy short style from which was a FREE gift from Calico in a rich brown called Quinn and I topped it off with the FREE gift from Tableau Vivant — a sexy flower headband. Both creators were generous with their Hair Fair gifts. Calico’s Quinn is a fatpack of full colors and Tableau Vivant’s flower giftie comes in a fatpack of six sexy colors!

This photo is also a great shot of my jewelry, which you can grab for a sweet steal of a deal for only 50$L a spin at OMG – Oh My Gatcha right now. It comes in either gold or silver and Meva outdid herself in the gorgeous details on this flowery jewelry set. I love that the rings come in a right or left hand choice setting and that the jewelry is easily modifiable for sizing!

If you look close you’ll also notice my Tango nail appliers. These are another great find — this time from the marketplace. That’s right! Alaskametro has done it again! Another great palate of 12 colors for only 10$L. Don’t miss out on this “Tango” applier set!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [3]

But were not done yet… you have one more stop before you can relax. Head over to Kaithleen’s to pick up the latest group gift. This sweet mesh green dress comes in all the standard sizes is a FREE group gift right now. The group is FREE to join and I love the off the shoulder style and the lovely detailing at the top.

All in all, it made for a great day at home. I’m feeling the love! And I’m loving my new couch. (And for only two prims only my house is loving it too!) Time for a couch nap!
