Heavy Reading

Heavy Reading

Time to get some serious studying done.  I feel I’ve been lax in the cultivation of my grey matter.   As Poirot would call them “zee little grey cells”.  So, I’ve gathered up some edifying reading material, and I shan’t put down this serious tome until I am feeling decidedly more intelligent.  Now, where are my brainy specs?

Non-Blonde

The Free Dove is back with another of their great monthly hunts.  This time, featuring BlondeQueen!  They’ve gathered up some very professional looking garb to keep you on track with everything you need to get done today.  To take part, just join The Free Dove group for free, and look for the little kawaii cats hiding around the building.  You’ll find 5 at The Free Dove, and 5 at the BlondeQueen mainstore.  Check out the key below for all the different goodies!

Happy Anniversary, Magika!

One of my absolute faves, Magika, is celebrating 16 years on the grid!  That’s quite an accomplishment!  To celebrate, they’re having a 40% off sale, and there’s a new group gift.  The group is free to join currently, and with your group join, you’ll be able to pick up these very versatile bangs that are a useful addition to any hair collection!  Also great for hiding scars! (ha!)

What are you doing to challenge yourself today?

I Own Everything

I Own Everything

For days when you have to get stuff done, days when you have to be the boss, days when you are large and in charge, or days where you just feel like looking capable…we’ve got the power pant and blouse combo!  To be fair, it’s rare to come across a well-tailored look (for free) in SL, so once in a while, when you need to remind the board that you own 51% of this company, you jump on the opportunity!

It Stands For…

Over at GGVG there are three new group gifts – all variations on the rolled pant look, in different colours.  I like a good polka dot now and then, so I went for this one.  You can wear the top and pants separately (useful!) and they fit like a glove.  To get yours, join the GGVG group for free, and click on the vendors located at the back of the store (straight ahead, at the back!).  There are a few other very nice gifts there while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Voluptuous
  • Classic M
  • Fitmesh M

Now, we were discussing how I own everything?

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. Julianna has been so busy building the “New Kids”, I’ve had to step in to help her find men’s wear on Grid. One of my old favorite designers has opened a new “shop” and I was thrilled to tell her and now the blog readers about it. (And to get Alistar some proper clothing.)

Gabriel has opened a new little shop next door to the main shop called “Free Bees”. And as you might guess all the items inside are 100% free. To everyone, no group needed. I had to stop from grabbing everything in one wild frenzy. But then I thought, “It’s free… why not?” 

Like this “Slim Pants Suit” in black and white. But this striking suit isn’t the only one. There are three black and white styles in the box. As well as the three designs on just the shirt and jacket and the three designs on a complete set… plus the complete set with both shorter and longer pants. Everything you need all for zero lindens.

Of course, Gabriel still has the large 50% off section and the 1L section in the main store. So you could literally fill your closet for a handful of lindens. And look smashing doing it.

Sizes Included

  • one size + full alpha

Asher

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Hello, my FabFree Dears! As I said Monday, this month is all Christmas all the time! And now I’m dragging Gabriel into it. But dang, doesn’t he look good in that suit? Nothing like a handsome man in a handsome suit. (He’s rolling his eyes at me)   At any rate, Gabe and I stopped over at R&R Swag and found this gorgeous set of his and hers Group Gifts. Both gifts include shoes and the ladies stunning gown includes the complete jewelry set as well. Now, we’re both ready for the Holiday Parties to get rolling.

R&R Swag is one of those awesome designers you can always count on for loads of past group gifts, lucky chairs and both men’s and ladies current gifts. Plus, the group is free to join. And of course, the quality is excellent. What more could you ask for?  Now go grab these and get all spiffied up!

Black Friday Shopping

Black Friday Shopping
Hiya, hope all of you in the US had a happy turkey day and the rest of the world a wonderful Thursday. And if like me, being a tad sluggish today due to carb overload LOL. So you need something to get the blood flowing again. Today’s outfit will do just that.

Planning For The Future

This post is ultimately about the future, but first the present, as in a gift, LOL group gifts. Meva has 2 new group gifts out. Jacx is modeling my favorite of the 2 Meva‘s Akina Set ticks a ton of the right boxes. Starting with a beautiful hunter or forest green color, (timely for the upcoming Xmas season.) The set consists of a jacket that is open clear to almost the navel, with contrasting lapels and a waist hugging belt. The skirt has a pleasing thigh-baring split to really show some leg. The outfit is free but does require the group which has a 100L join fee. This group is well worth having, as Meva does a fantastic advent, (if previous years are anything to go by) and that is just around the corner. Dec. 1st -Dec 24th.

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

A Touch Of Class

Touch Of Class
Hiya, have a wonderful look to show you, something to wear to those pre-holiday parties. 🙂

Classic Tailored Look

Have to admit to being a huge fan of classic-style clothing. The plus in classic style clothing is it doesn’t go “out of style”.  Lucky for us classic fans Hilly Haalan‘s currant group gift is a stunning example of this look. The free Hilly Haalan Debbie Dress GG is a one-piece dress that looks like a skirt and blouse, and a basic black handbag is included. The well-crafted pinstripe top with 3/4 length sleeves and the sleek black slightly ruffled skirt definitely will make a fashion statement. This outfit will make a great addition to your SL wardrobe. The Hilly Haalan group is free to join, in addition to this gift, there is a building brimming with more gifts to pick up.

I Own Everything

I Own Everything

I’m feeling a bit profesh today in this outfit!  Like I could type 100 words per minute and close deals while simultaneously drinking iced coffee and having perfect hair.  Hey, one can always dream…

Happy Anniversary!

Belle Epoque has been gracing us with their classic clothing designs for 6 years!  They’re celebrating in grandiose style with a fun and completely free hunt.  You’ll find almost 40 free gifts hidden in cupcakes around the store, and not only from Belle Epoque!  Other designers have joined in too, adding all sorts of great gifts including shapes, decor and clothing.  No need to join a group, just look for the cupcakes.  I found three lovely items – all by Belle Epoque – the Tyra dress, Runaround Sue bag and Pop Diner glasses that have had me feel ready to play the part of corporate queen perfectly!
