Captivating Karin

She Has Fire in Her Soul and Grace in Her Heart

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I found a fantastic beach to spend our Saturday on.  With gulls calling over head, the crash of waves on the shore, and the nickers of wild horses grazing in the meadow nearby, it was a tranquil setting.

As the tide rolled in, and the sun sank low on the horizon, I snapped this photo to showcase the free Karin Love Camisk, which is one of the many free gifts generous designers are bestowing on the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented creator at PA Designe put together this sexy, barely there garment, which I’m sure would come in handy for Gorean role play, in addition to a day at the shore.  In a soft shade of mauve, this two piece outfit is sure to flatter any skin tone.  Its bandeau-style top, frayed edges, and daring cut will draw all eyes to your figure.  Ripley insisted I apply the alpha layer of my mesh body strategically so he didn’t have to be on active guard dog duty all day on the beach, and his suggestion worked like a charm.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Standard Large and Small Avatar

It’s time for this surf-lovin’ girl and her bodyguard pup to bundle up in some beach towels, and head on home for the night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Aphrodite Shop
I hope you’ve all enjoyed your Friday thus far. Today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday focuses on a whimsical shop called Aphrodite. This playful shop centers around cute furniture, seasonal items, decor, and landscaping materials. The Aphrodite Shop is nicely decorated and landscaped, so in addition to any shopping, it’s a pretty spot to look around. At the landing point is where you’ll find the wall of event and group affiliation information.
Aphrodite Gifts & Info
There are several gifts and offers on this wall, including the Fab Free Exclusive group gift. Serena showed the FREE box of valentines sweets gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in her post “Home Alone.” To get your copy, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Be sure to check out the other offers on this wall as well. Just across from the wall with gifts is where you’ll find the Aphrodite Shop gift cards, flickr, Facebook, and subscriber  kiosk. You can also join the in world group for just 99 lindens and be rewarded with occasional gifts, discounts, and exclusives. For a little instant gratification, join the Aphrodite Shop subscriber group and be instantly gifted a nice wooden drink cart for your home, no fees.  Between the decorative items, seasonal decor, landscaping, and furniture, it won’t be hard to find something you want or need for your personal space, or you can just bring your significant other or your best friend and enjoy the scenery.

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island.  I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world.  I found the perfect poses for times like these.  Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers.  Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package.  Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included:  

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

Light Reading_002

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

Belice Gift :: Woman Shoes :: Two Colors

Snapshot_002A Whimsical Spin To Save The Day

Hi there Fabulouses!  Just home from work, and am taking a few minutes to blog/unwind from my day.  After a day like today, a whimsical spin in the garden sounds like a perfect way to let go of the days events, alas…  it’s pouring rain, so here I am…  in SL…  trying out my luck with the sun here 🙂  It’s always sunny in SL (unless you don’t want it to  be!).  This fun spinning pose is just one of several Fabulously Free in SL group gifts available at West End.  It doesn’t actually spin…  it’s a static pose made for catching the moment as I have, in a snapshot!  The FabFree group is always free to join.

FabFree Designer Friday (On A Tuesday… A Little Late): West End

We’re Late!

Good evening FabFree Readers!  It’s time for FabFree Designer Friday!  Actually, it’s been time for FabFree Designer Friday for a few days now lol.  Prudence Rexroth usually does these features on Friday but it appears she is having some technical difficulties, so you are stuck with me this time and it’s a little late (my apologies!!)!  I hope I do as good of a job as she usually does!

Take a trip to the West End

Today I am choosing to featuring West End, which was established in 2016 by Beloved Ruby.  This modern, easy to move around in, two level shop offers beautifully designed men’s and women’s shapes on the first floor and a hefty selection of  poses on the upper level.  If you are having trouble shaping yourself with your new bento head, be sure to stop by West End and check out Beloved Ruby’s selection as she has some really nice – ready to put on, no muss – no fuss shapes for bento!

Free, Free, Free!

There are a ton of group gifts to take advantage of while you are visiting the shop.  As you can see from the photo below, there are currently five group gifts set to the free Fabulously Free in SL inworld group and seven group gifts set to the West End inworld group.  You’ll find these group gifts just to the left as you enter through the main doors right next to the “Events Ads”.

Right as you walk in the store, straight ahead you’ll find a very sweet couples pose as a free group gift for the Second U Magazine group which is free to join.  If you are a blogger and like what you see instore, you can even apply via the Blogotex system at the desk!

As you can see, it’s a lovely shop, so head down there – I bet you’ll find something you like!

Transparency

Transparency_001

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!
