Who says Halloween can’t be about flowers?

Hello again my FabFree readers! Did you miss me last week? I missed you, but don’t worry, I’m going to make up for my lack of a post last week with a super-duper, wicked-awesome, goodie-filled post today! Ok, maybe I overdid it with the ‘super-duper’, and ‘wicked-awesome’, but I do have a lot of goodies to show off. So let me get right into it.

purple_004I wanted to put together a look that would work for a more formal Halloween party, and I started with my shoes. These little beauties, called Sutra II, are the free October Facebook gift from Alaskametro. I was so excited to see the colour they came in, as I just love purple as a Halloween colour. What’s even better, they come with a HUD that lets you choose between 3 different shades of purple. I am wearing the version for SLink high feet, but there are also The Mesh Project, Maitreya, and Belezza versions, all in their prospective high versions. In case you have not ever taken advantage of the Alaskametro Facebook gifts, or just don’t remember what to do, let me tell you. You need to head over to the Alaskametro Facebook page, HERE (like it if you haven’t already), and click on the link for special promotions. The picture there will tell you the code you need to know. Then, inworld, head over to the Alaskametro store, and walk over to the gift poster. Say the code you got from the Facebook page, on channel 33, exactly as written (meaning in capital letters). So your chat bar should show /33 CODEHERE, with CODEHERE not being the actual code, of course. Make sense? Trust me, these shoes are worth the effort! You have until the end of the month to grab them up. purple_001

Next up, my gorgeous dress. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple from Tiffany Designs, and it is their current Womenstuff group gift located at the ‘stuff Lounge. As stated in the name, this is a mesh dress, in all the standard sizes. Sure, looking at the lovely flowery print, with the sweet flower at the waist, one does not immediately say ‘Hey, that’s a great dress for Halloween!’, but the colour worked so nicely with my shoes, and of course the devil is in all the little added details for putting together a great costume. *grins* All you need to do to get this free gift, is join the Womenstuff group, for a small L$50 fee that is totally worth it for this dress alone, not to mention the multitudes of other gifts available.

purple_006OK, no formal party look is complete without some great jewelry. I picked up this statement making Bohemian Rhapsody necklace and earrings set at our very own FabFree Headquarters, and it is a free gift from D.D.M. Designs. These big bold pieces are the perfect complement to the simple lines of my dress and shoes, and it’s hard to beat free! Just a warning, there are actually 2 left earrings in this set, and no right earring. I have alerted the creator, but it is a simple fix by changing the attach point of one earring to the right ear, and then doing a few hocus pocus adjustments to get it sitting correctly.purple_003

OK, now for the piece that made my stunning formal look into a stunning masquerade formal look…my fabulous floral eye patch from the Bird Next Door Shop on the Marketplace.  To be honest, when I decided that I needed something for my face, I went looking for the typical, pretty, delicate mask look, and believe me, there are lots of great ones to choose from. However, in my search on the Marketplace, this flower eye patch came up, and for only L$23. It was so different from everything else, and at such an affordable price, I thought I’d give it a try. Obviously…it was a winner! And, even though the listing says it is no mod, it is actually the resize script that is no mod, so you can adjust each individual piece to your heart’s content. I tinted a few of the glowy flexi pieces the same purple as the flowers to better match my dress.

purple_002

Phew…ok…I think I am done. This was a long post. I think I am going to go see if Mr. Skeleton would like to dance. He looks like he may have been waiting around for quite a while. LOL. Hope you all have a lovely week, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN!

New shoes make me feel just peachy!

Well hello all you Fab readers! I’m back! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. RL took me away for far longer than anticipated, but I couldn’t stay away, even if RL has only let up a little bit. So, for the time being, I will be posting every Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the swing of things.

purepoisonalaska1

Now, it was lucky for me that the day I came back to FabFree was the day Pure Poison sent out a notice about having a new group gift gacha out! The gorgeous Daya pumps, that I am showing off in Brown, are available in 6 colours, with a rare animal print pattern as well. I’m sure all you loyal readers know how their gacha group gifts work, but for any new readers, or those that just aren’t familiar, let me explain. Head over to the store, and put on your Pure Poison group tag, which is free to join, and hit the blue gacha machine with the group gift sign on it. You get 1 free play for being a group member. Now, if you are not a group member, or did not get the colour you wanted from the group machine, despair not, because right beside the blue gacha is a green gacha that is L$50 per play for everyone. Everybody wins this way…and I love it! I happen to be wearing the SLink rigged version, but you also get an unrigged SLink pair, and a pair for Maitreya feet.

The other goodie I have to show off, is from one of my favourite stores, Alaskametro. Every month, there is a new Facebook giftie available, and while May is almost up, you still have a little bit of time to grab the May gift. In this month’s gift, you receive a whole lot of peachy goodness! There are makeup and polish huds for most head and body types you can think of, as well as tattoo layers for the makeup. The polish comes with 2 choices, a solid peach, and a polka-dotted peach, which I’m able to show you both on one hand now that I’ve updated my SLink hands which allow selecting individual nails for different colours!!! (What a great update to come back to SL to!) There are 2 lipsticks, 2 eyeshadow, and 2 blushes, all in the peach shade family. I happen to be wearing the Peach Juice lipstick, and the Peach Shimmer eyeshadow. To get this free pack of peach yumminess, head to the Alaskametro Facebook page, like it, if you haven’t already, and hit the special promotions tab. It will take you to a page which will give you a password, then head on over to the main store, stand near the gift poster, and on channel 33, say the password in chat. Example: /33 ‘password’, where ‘password’ is replaced with the actual password. Make sure you type it exactly as you saw it on the page, capital letters and all.

Phew! Can you tell that I’ve missed writing for all of you lovelies? If I had a word quota, I think this post would have used up several posts worth! LOL. Anywho. That is it for me for now. I will be back in a week with some more fabulous finds to show off. Until then, TTFN *waves*

What Colour Do You See?

What Colour Do You See?
Have you guys been reading about the huge online debate splattered all over the net about the blue/black or white/gold dress?  My daughter came home the other day and made me look right away to see what colour I thought it was…  I first saw white/gold, but when she looked at me like I was an alien and said ” You are completely wrong, Mother”, I looked again and you know what?  I was then seeing the blue/black!  It is so odd, and everyone is talking about it.  Even stars like Taylor Swift are adding in their two cents about what colour it is lol.  If you have no idea what I am talking about you can read about it [HERE].  I’d love to see your comments – What colour did you see?

Anyways…  When you “like” the Facebook Page for Alaskametro you can pick up a voucher code for a free copy of the Enigma Dress in blue/black and white/gold.  No need to decide -you just get both!  So much fun 🙂

ps.  I’m wearing Maitreya Lara – and it works great with the alphas!

An icy blue dream….with my cat.

Hello all you beautiful fabfree’rs, and you handsome ones too 😉 How has your weekend been? I decided I wanted to take one of my cat’s out for a wander around SL this evening, and wouldn’t you know it, my newest baby, Pirilti, matched my outfit perfectly! Is it wrong that I considered that when choosing who to take out? LOL. Oh well, she enjoyed herself, as I ended up on a bridge surrounded by trees full of birds for her to watch while I posed. So what am I wearing that colour coordinates with my cat….let me show you!

icyblue1

I have to start with my super cute dress. This is the latest free Facebook gift from Alaskametro, and if you haven’t taken advantage of these gifts from them before, it requires a little bit of work. First you need to be logged in to Facebook, and then head on over to Alaskametro’s Facebook Page and ‘like’ it. Once that is done, hit the ‘special promotions’ tab and you should be taken to a picture of this dress, which also has a promotion code. Under the picture are the instructions on what to do once you TP yourself, in SL, over to Alaskametro‘s building. Here’s a hint, make sure you type the code in exactly as you see it, meaning all capital letters. The Ingrid Tunic dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and I really love the open sleeves.

icyblue3

While you are in the building, you might as well take a look to the left of  the Facebook gifts poster, and you will see a little gacha machine. For only L$3 a play, you will receive one of the Byzantine nail appliers sets that give you a hud for both SLink finger and toe nails, as well as an Omega applier for both. Hopefully you have more luck than I did…I got several repeats of the same 4 colours! LOL. For such a small price per play though, I don’t mind really. I’ve included a shot of the gacha ad so you can see the large assortment of colours available, as well as the other 2 patterns. I, btw, am wearing the Mocha colour.

icyblue4

Lastly, did you noticed that gorgeous unicorn ring on my finger? Well, it is a group gift from the current round of the Oneword event, and it is from Moon Amore. This months theme/word, is Dream, and I think a unicorn fits that theme perfectly. You get 3 different colour combinations, I am wearing the silver/blue version. This gift is free after you join the Oneword group, which is free to join. There are several more gifts for group members, from other stores as well, so make sure you grab all of them. This round of Oneword runs until the 15th, so don’t take too long before heading over there, it’ll be gone before you know it.

OK, I think Pirilti is getting ready to leap off this bridge, some of those birds are purposely taunting her, I’m sure of it. I’m off for now, but I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*

The Bling Ring

Hello again FabFree Readers! I hope you have been enjoying October so far and that you are having fun finding all the new hunts, group gifts and freebies that come with a new month! Today I am going to be showing you some of the things you can find on The Bling Hunt! If you love a bit of sparkle in your life then this is definately the hunt for you! All prizes cost L$1 to purchase and you are looking for a little golden crown .. after all, every Queen of Bling needs her crown.

Every girl needs a glitzy dress at some point in her life, even if its just for one special night. The Celebrity Dress is the Bling Hunt prize at Sassy and fits the bill perfectly. You’ll obviously need matching shoes with that and the Bling Sandals for SLink High Feet by Heathenesque were practically made to be worn with this dress.

Untitled

No glamourous look is complete without some gorgeous lips and The Bling Hunt prize at WoW Skins will add the perfect finishing touch to any skin. The Galaxy Bling lip tattooes come in a pack of colours but my favourite was the Mars shade that I am wearing here. There have been some big changes over at Tableau Vivant over the last week and to celebrate they have set out a free group gift of a full fatpack of hair HUD’s for this divine sleek hair style! The group is currently free to join!

Untitled

No matter how dressed up I am, I always like to add a little bit of cute too. My adorable ring is a new promotional dollarbie from Sweet Thing! This is going to be available for two weeks before the flavour will never be available again. To get your hands on this sweet treat, simply go to the Sweet Thing Facebook page, like the page and scroll down to the post that shows the ring. Then click on the SLURL shown in the post. I was going to post the SLURL here, but I didnt know if it was a secret SLURL which is unfair to print so be sure to go to their page and like them!

I hope you enjoyed these! Stay tuned as I will be bringing you some blinging finds soon!

Falling In Love With Autumn

Im having a lazy Autumn day in the sun, taking a little snooze with the gorgeous falling leaves around me and the cooling breeze. Its still quite warm here for October and some of the trees are a little confused at whether they should be turning into golds and russets yet! But slowly the seasons are changing..

I have several great freebies to show you today! First is the cosy Tokyo Sweater by Eaters Coma is their group gift for the Creation.jp event. To get it, you will need to join the Creation.jp group for free and then click the poster on Eaters Coma booth nearby while wearing the group tag. Im not sure when the event ends as I couldn’t find an end date though I spent a while searching for that info! So be sure to run over to get it while you can.

Untitled

My hair is the new free group gift by Moon and comes in a huge fatpack of colour HUDS for you to enjoy! There are so many colours included, you are bound to find something that suits you. The group is also free to join and there are other gifts there you can pick up also that can be found nearby so don’t forget those too! The hairbase I am wearing isnt included with the hair, but can be found in the fatpack of colours available at Spellbound on the counter for free. These are made to match the hairs from this store, but there is a white hairbase in the monochrome pack that I use to match other hair that need a base! Hooray!

Untitled

Pumec is a reasonably new store name to me that I found one day while exploring new stores I found from other events. They have several free gifts available that have already been shown before by Love here and Calleja here. Today I am showing you their new free group gift available called Alina! It is such a cute skin and comes complete with a whole wealth of appliers on a special HUD, including SLink! My eyes are the group gift Opal Eyes in beautiful autumnal colour called Seashell by Poetic Colors. You need to be a member of their subscription group to claim the eyes as when you click the gift it will check, but it will also offer a chance to join it if it doesn’t find your name in the database.

Untitled

The nails I am wearing are a special Halloween gift from Alaskametro. There is a special way to get these nails so be sure to follow the instructions! First you will need to go to their Facebook page and like their page. You then go to the Special Promotions tab at the top of their page.. inside there will be a special code. Then go to the Alaskametro store in world and locate the redemption sign underneath the “Featured Items and Promotions” sign and stand next to it. Type /33 and then the code you got from Facebook in main chat and press enter and you will be sent the gift! Just to clarify you need to type /33 YOURCODE in main chat, replacing YOURCODE with the code you got from Facebook! Make sure it is in all capital letters as lower case won’t work!

Alaskametro Gift / Facebook Promo

These are all the great nail options available in the HUD. There are both manicure and pedicure HUDS in there for SLink hands and feet as well as Omega appliers!
