I Can Hear Them Whisper

I can hear them whisper

I can’t believe that Blueberry has been around for 10 years! That’s an eternity in SL time. There are various happenings at the store in celebration and you definitely don’t want to miss them, so allow me to enumerate. 

New Gift

There’s a new group gift at the Blueberry main store and oh my is it pretty. It’s called Decade and included is a dress version and a shirt version. I’m wearing the dress here. There’s also a very extensive HUD for all of your customization needs – the group notice says it’s 37 colors and 18 patterns! Not to mention options for things like button and panty color. Oh! I wanted to mention the panties too. Yes, I just exclaimed over free panties. They are a separate piece and will certainly be useful under other outfits as well. Bonus gift!

Sizes:

  • Ebody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Store Credit

There is a free 500L store credit that you will find in the Blueberry group notices. When you attach it and click to apply the funds to your store credit balance, there’s a popup that the credit will expire in 3 weeks. it certainly won’t last that long though! Because…

Sale!

There’s also a sale going on and the entire store at Blueberry is 50% off. So if you use your credit now you can get twice as much stuff. Math! I’ve found that I’m a sucker for shoes that lace up the leg and I grabbed these Solstice sandals (which you can only see the very top of) in a fatpack – we’re talking flat/high feet, height options for the laces from ankle to knee and clear up to thigh, and lots of colors. A whole fatpack at half price was only 225L but free with my giftcard, so I was able to grab a couple of other cute pieces as well!

The sale started on Saturday and will last for 5 days, so I guess until Thursday-ish? The good news is that, if you can’t get there for the sale, the credit is in group notices and Blueberry leaves up their old group gifts so the gift will probably remain available. It’s 20L to join Blueberry‘s group but you’re already in it so no problem there, right? And if not, that’s 20L very well spent. Happy Anniversary Blueberry!

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time…

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time...

Hey Fab Fam, I know it’s another Monday but I hope it’s a good one for you. My Monday hasn’t been bad at all because I popped over to the 10th Anniversary round of Cosmopolitan. And what made it so good, you may ask.  All the free anniversary gifts set out for us! Most every Designer has set out a lovely little free gift to celebrate. In fact, I was able to put together this entire outfit, from head to toe with nothing but free gifts!

First is this lovely dress. This is ‘Candra – gris’ from Avale and just look at the way it drapes and flows! The color is a deep navy (maybe) but comes across more as a dusty black. But “gris” does mean “gray” so… There is a HUD to change up the color but it only changes the top not the skirt. Just my personal preference but I liked the matching pieces best.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Kalhene – Erika
  • Kupra – Original
  • Legacy
  • Maitrya
  • SLink – Hourglass

My shoes are the Nives Sandals from G & D. You get a full fatpack with these cuties! So it was easy to match them to my new dress. I just love it when that happens.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Even my new hair style is a free gift! This is the ‘Coral’ style from eXxEsS. You get the full fat pack of colors here too. I love the swoopy bangs and the little buns. Such a playful yet sophisticated style.

And last but not least is my demur pose from LW Poses. The ‘Anniversary Gift’ pose comes with a pose ball and they animation as well as the pretty flowers to hold.

Cosmopolitan has got us covered for gifts! And this is just part 1 of a 2 part celebration! I see loads more gifts in our future!

Free Ice Cream for the Taking

*Dalilu'* by Peperoncino Yo Fabbies! It’s nigh beach time again! time to feel the sand between your toes. While I could have shown you a cute bikini or swimsuit I chose to go with a couple of fair gifts and a freebie! Sighs, I wish getting free things in RL was so easy. Wouldn’t that be nice? On to the goodies…

Buy What for $3L??!!??

Harambee Hunts benefit the Harambee Gwassi Kenya project. One of the current hunts is also a fair; the Magical Spring 2 Fair runs until May 10th. Most every booth has a $3L hunt gift (look for the Magical Unicorns near the booths) and some also have free gifts.

Originally posted by Aline in Fabulous Finds the Peperoncino Dalilu outfit is a FATPACK!! You get the jeans, the bra, and a bomber jacket for only $3L! AND, it comes with a huge texture change hud. This is the perfect spring outfit to wear when roaming the grid.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG
  • Reborn

I Scream for Ice Cream!

In another one of Aline’s Fabulous Finds I spied ice cream. I know how much Aline loves her ice cream cause I do too. It is Free! Hop on over to Just Tony and get your own cause I’m not sharing.

I’m ready for the month of May and all the new events and hunts. However my inventory is not since I am a self-proclaimed SL hoarder – EEKKKK! What about you?

Keep on being Fabulous!

Free the Mind: Imagination Vibrations

Monarchs Kingdom

Second Life is about imagination.  We can do things, see things, BE things in Second Life that we can only dream about.  It’s a fantasy world where we each get to be a star.

Monarchs Kingdom is not a store.  They are a performance dance troupe, and you can attend their live shows or watch their videos here.  So how, you ask, did they end up on the FabFree blog???

Each month, their creator, Royal Shippe, places a group gift of decor out for free.  Royal isn’t any ordinary dance designer, he’s won awesome awards like the Avichoice Performance Artist of the Year.  The gifts are elaborate set pieces from the many awesome shows he’s created.  They are 100% original.

The April gift (called the Megapack Holo Trees & Humanoid Statues) is pictured above includes a whole set of large and small holographic trees in a variety of colors and this sculpture called Corellia (which comes with a mirror).  I paired the set with a post set from Something New called Dress Me Again that is currently available at Cheeky Wow for a sweet 50L!!!

If you love backdrops as much as I do, you will LOVE the monthly gifts.

Every month you can pop in and get a new set!!!  Stick around for Christmas, because the advent daily calendar was unbelievable.  And the price?  FREE!!!!  The group isfree; the gifts are free.

Rumor has it that a Star Wars production is in the works and dates will be announced soon.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

The Summer’s Out of Reach

The summer's out of reach

The Miix Event is having an anniversary round! Aline already told us about it here. Because of the anniversary, there’s a free gift at almost every booth. And there are a lot of booths. You will have to join the Hype Events group to get them, which is free to join. This round (and all of the glorious freebies therein) will last until April 20th.

I decided to take this opportunity to play one of my favorite games – “How Many Freebies Can Allison Wear At Once?”: Miix Edition. Spoiler…the answer is a lot.  I’ve been dying for a beach lately and thought that this look could scratch that itch. I ended up at a super cool deserted boardwalk (slurl down below) with a more end of summer type vibe but it’s still ice cream on the boardwalk! The free items I’m wearing from the Miix Event, in no particular order are:

  • Free eyes from Tville – soooooo gorgeous, for real, they might become my new everyday eyes (so weird that that statement makes sense in this virtual world of ours)
  • Free lipstick from SIDIKA SAKA – the gift includes a blush and 7 vibrant lip shades
  • Free eyeliner from Seduction – a nice winged look for evox, including a tintable version
  • Free outfit by FurtaCor – the shorts and sweatshirt are one piece and it includes a HUD full of solid and pattern color options! Perfect for that late summer evening. There are sizes for:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Maitreya
    – Physique
    – Venus
  • Free necklace by No Cabide
  • Free tattoo by SPT
  • Free ice cream cone by BBB – comes in strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate!

Phew I told you it was a lot, and I didn’t even scratch the surface. You’re bound to find something that you love. ❤

Solace in the Wild Woods

Solace in the Wild Woods

This Wednesday evening finds me in search of solace, yet again.  It seems I need a lot of peaceful places to get through the week these days, but perhaps the hustle and bustle of city life does get to one’s spirit now and then.  So off to the lovely flowered fields (and proud peacocks!) of Luane’s World to find a bit of healing whenever I can.

Tori Time

In my wanderings, I happened to stop by Tori Torricelli and found that they have a few group gifts upstairs.  They also have some group gifts for the guys too to check out.  I got this awesome dress (the HUD is huge…) as well as these pretty drop earrings that go with just perfectly.  There are some other jewelry gifts too.  The Tori Torricelli group is just 20L to join, so a great deal!  Head on over – you’re sure to enjoy your visit.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Where do you go for solace?

The Naughty Housewife

Dubai Event & Emerald Dreams

Ladies.  It’s confession time.  I “may” have gone a little nuts at the Dubai Event.  Most stands have a 49L sale item, and, well, I just couldn’t help myself.  There were soooo many cool items to chat about, but I have to focus on just a few.  I found this cute little 49L dress called Callie from Rainn and simple sweet Sherri heels (also 49L) from Tantrum.

Dubai Event

The cute little retro dress only comes in this color, but I love Tiffany blue, so I liked it right away.  The shoes…oh Ladies…the SHOES!  The HUD has all KINDS of colors and three areas to choose what you want.  They are simple yet pretty and go with any outfit you might have stashed away.

Dubai Event: The Shoes

As I was putting together this outfit with the 49L pose set called “This Beautiful Life” from West End, I totally got the “naughty housewife” vibe…I mean, I DID just spend, um, a lot, on makeup, shoes, clothes and, well, if I were a wife, I’d definitely be a naughty one!

Beauty is in the Eye of the Wicked Brat

Wicked Brat: Adore Eyes ($)

Ladies, I have a new addiction.  Well, ok, when it comes to shopping in SL, I have lots of addictions.  My latest is eyes.  I have all kinds of eyes, but I love the eyes that have HUDs.  This makes life so much easier for everyone!

So, here’s the story.  Today, I was inworld cleaning my props area because, well, I don’t clean in RL, and SL is fantasy, right??  Who’s with me here?

I got an inworld notice about a new store (new to me, anyway) called Wicked Brat.  They have eyes…they have group gifts…and who wants to clean up props???

WOW!  Ladies!  RUN to Wicked Brat.  Firstly, they have a FREE group to join.  By joining the group, you get a sweet L250 Credit for FREE!  It’s like they are paying you to get some nice eyes!! I used that store credit to buy the eyes above called Adore.  Aren’t they simply stunning???

As if that weren’t enough, they have a FREE group gift set of eyes called Shimmer.  Aren’t these beautiful???

Wicked Brat: Shimmer Eyes (GG)

And, as if THAT weren’t enough, they have a FREE SLFO gift out called Mistral.  They are beautiful, too!

Wicked Brat: Mistrel Eyes (SLFO)

So now I have MORE eyes to choose from when I put together an outfit.  I am so excited!!!!
