Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Date Night Ready!

Black Lace

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  I have lots of things to get accomplished in RL today, but wanted to publish a quick post that features this sweet black lacy concoction. The Iris Dress is just perfect for a Saturday night date, and it’s free!

All Dolled Up

With sexy cut outs in the sides that show off a glimpse of skin and translucent lace, your avatar will look fantastic in this sexy frock.  Best of all, you won’t have to spend a fortune to look fabulous!  I love the floral pattern and the asymmetrical hemline of the skirt in my new dress.  While out in public, I made strategic use of the alpha layer of my Maitreya body to ensure my bits were concealed, but when back at home after a date night, the alpha layer won’t be needed! 😉 The free package includes both red and black versions of this mini for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Julia’s Scandal, activate the group tag (it’s completely free to join!), and tap the vendor.  You (and your date) will glad you did!

What’s Included:

  • Classic Avatar (in black and red)
  • Alpha layer
  • Ebody (in black and red)
  • Freya (in black and red)
  • Hourglass (in black and red)
  • Maitreya (in black and red)
  • Physique (in black and red)
  • Venus (in black and red)

The pupster and I are off to complete as many errands and household chores as we can.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Ink it Was Love at First Sight

Ink it was love at first sight
Oh my gosh, Becky look at her ink! She must be one of those shoppers who went to the Second Anniversary round of Bodyfy. Haha All silliness aside, there are quite a few free gifts at the current round of Bodyfy in celebration of their second year running. Most of the gifts are (you guessed it!) tattoos. I picked out four of the many gifts to share with you along with the free April group gift from Sevyn East.

Get Some Ink

Starting from the top with this brow tattoo Goth1c0. You may recognize the tattoo that reads “Stories to tell…” as it was a previous gift I showed here. If you missed it then, now’s your chance to pick it up for free at Bodyfy. Just pay the “panic” button at the Goth1c0 booth zero linden. This particular tattoo comes in a Catwa applier and an Omega applier.

Next up, not a tattoo, but rather feathery doll-like lashes. Another free gift at Bodyfy. these upper and lower lashes are an applier by MILA. These sweet lashes come in a Catwa applier only.

These sleeve tattoos by Ivory & Rose are my absolute favorite of the free gifts at Bodyfy. The colorful highly detailed tattoos come in fresh, fade, and worn versions in an Omega applier.

Finally, the black and grey detailed upper leg tattoo is also a free gift at Bodyfy. The tattoo is by Endless Pain. I think it’s both fierce and beautiful. It comes in a classic system layer as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. Like all the gifts at Bodyfy just pay the panic button zero linden to get your copy. No group required.

April at Sevyn East

This cute little bodysuit is the free April group gift at Sevyn East. You’ll need to join the Sevyn East group. The group is free to join at this time. The bodysuit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud. The hud has 8 color combinations to choose from.

Beach More, Worry Less

Salt in the Air

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It was one of those days in real life when the day to day stresses seemed to pile up on my shoulders, and all I wanted to do was escape to the shore.  Since I am a long way from the ocean, Ripley and I did the next best thing……we escaped to NorderNey in Second Life.  Of course, I had to wear the newest addition to my summery wardrobe – a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.

Like the Sea – Wild and Free

This beautiful Turquesa Boho Beach Dress from Poeme is perfect for soaking up some sunshine in the salty air.  It features slender spaghetti straps, a comfy casual cut, and a soft pale teal hue.    I really like the intricate white pattern which is swirled across the fabric.  The free gift package also includes a pair of Mandala Turquoise earrings that coordinate perfectly with the outfit.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, this warm weather frock is sure to fit most.  To add Turquesa to your SL closet, simply teleport over to Poeme, activate your Teleport Hub group tag, and tap the vendor.  If you’re not already part of the group, membership costs only 10L, and includes gifts around the grid.  It’s so worth the fee!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Mandala Turquoise Earrings also included

Until my next post, happy shopping!

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Hey hi hello Fab Free’rs! It’s true what the sign says “Life happens, coffee helps.” At least that has been my experience. If you’re a coffee drinker like myself, there’s a lot to love about this cute decorative rug group gift from Zen Creations. I’m also really enjoying this top. It’s one of three recent group gifts at Hilly Haalan. Keep reading for all the info about these fabulous freebies!

The Rug – This fur rug is a FREE group gift from Zen Creations. The coffee and the pen have poses attached to them. The rug will give you a pen prop or a coffee mug to hold depending on which pose you choose. I just used my own pose to take this photo. The Zen Creations group is FREE to join.

The TopHilly Haalan has 3 FREE group gifts out, and this fun warm weather top is one of them. The top comes in several mesh sizes and has a color/texture change hud with tons of options. This particular option just seemed to suit my mood at the moment! There are graphic print options as well as solid colors. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join, so do not miss this! Also, there is an alpha layer included so this top is suitable for classic avatars.

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Looking for a Black Rose

BlackRose

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I were lucky enough to have some spare time to spend wandering the grid, and came across a beautiful frock to share with you today.  We hope you like it!

Fabulous and Free Frock

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 03/24/2018 – Zuri

Zuri Entrance
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! So I will just come right out and admit it, I completely dropped the ball on this week’s Designer Friday post. However, do not let that deter you from all the fabulous shopping at Zuri. This enormous jewelry store is a jewelry lovers paradise. Zuri has everything your bejeweled heart could desire. There are items for men as well as the ladies, and even couples items like wedding bands. There are also many gifts, sales, and other offers happening all over this 3 story jewelry store! At the entrance shown above, you can get your first FREE gift from Zuri by joining their subscriber.
Zuri Gifts and Offers
As you head inside the Zuri main store you can follow the pink footprints to some Steals & Deals along with Midnight Mania boards and other awesome discounts. First however, you’ll want to make a pit-stop at the Zuri circulation desk. Not only can you pick up the info you need about an Easter hunt happening in the store, there are a hand full of gifts waiting to be picked up. The Zuri in world group has a one time join fee of 299 linden. This grants you instant access to the several group gifts, the group Midnight Mania, shopping discounts and much more. There’s even a board at the circulation desk that will give you a note card about all the group perks.

Zuri Get Lucky
On the second floor of the Zuri Jewelry store you’ll find more dazzling goodness. I spotted two Lucky Chairs, and a yummy looking Lucky Dip. Each of these offers a lovely jewelry prize. I would even consider the Lucky Chair prizes to be unisex. There is also a third floor of Zuri Jewelry to explore. You will definitely want to check that out, there is a cool little observatory up there as well. Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for those Easter eggs! Happy Shopping Fab Free!
