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.

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!

I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Tropical_002

“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch”

Okay, okay…

Okay, so I don’t really have any coconuts, but I found this great tiki disco house called The Revival Disco where I could dance in my new free group gift dress from EvelineInTheBox! I love this particular dress. The colors are tropical and gorgeous and it has a sexy side slit all the way down the right side of the dress.

Sizes you’ll be getting: Standard sizes XXS – L + a Fitted Mesh and a quality alpha for system bodies.

EvelineInTheBox is a great place to pick up roleplay, fantasy, and modern clothes for low prices and regularly puts out a free group gift. Be sure to drop by and get your free Nandi dress before it disappears!

“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!

Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

Late Night Slice

Late Night Slice

Got the munchies….

We’ve all been there. It’s late and the rumbling in your stomach starts. You look at the clock and know the only place still open is that corner pizza joint. If you hurry, you still might be able to grab a pie before they close of the night.

Stars and Scars…

Tonight, I’m wearing the Starboy Hoodie, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt 9 gift from American Bazaar. What else would I throw on to run out to get pizza with. I didn’t even bother to comb my hair.  The Morinaga Hair is a FREE group gift from Scars. The Scars group is FREE to join.

Whole or by the slice…

And last but not least, my food of choice is a FREE gift from Lorien at the Redeux Event. The Pizza Box has enough pizza to feed all your friends as it gives a slice to anyone who touches it. You’ll be the hit of any party with the never-ending pizza slice.

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

Vroom! Vroooom!

THE PEA MOBILE_002

Vroom! Vroom!

I haven’t had a new car since 2004. At least in real life. And even then I bought a used one. So when I heard that I could get a new free car at MadPea (even if it was a Pea Pod car) I was all in for a new set of wheels!

I made a mad dash to the MadPea main-store to check out the deal and it wasn’t long before I was cruising down the streets of Port Babbage in my favorite of the 7 colors that are available in the free gift pack. The group is free to join by the way, making this gift absolutely free as well. If I look like I’m having fun, that’s because I am!

Perks:

  • This car is wearable, no rezzing required.
  • The headlights turn off and on with a click.
  • 7 Colors in the package: Dark Blue, Green (shown), Light Green, Orange, Pink, Red, Turquoise.
  • Each color comes in a fit for both male and female avatar so you won’t have to worry about that problem.
  • I found it easy to edit the car when up and down a bit and then set my hover height a touch when the wheels didn’t quite touch the ground.
  • It’s easy to drive/navigate!
  • Did I already mention its absolutely FREE?!

THE PEA MOBILE_001

Cruising…

I was cruising down the streets (plus I wanted to give you a side view of this cute little pea-pod of a car – aren’t all the details amazing!) and ran across a little bakery shop. I decided to make a stop and get out of my new wheels and head in…

THE PEA MOBILE_003

A spring dress.

I had to step out carefully, as I was wearing a bit of a short skirted dress today. Good thing my MadPea car sets low to the ground, it makes for easy exits. My adorable frock is a free group gift from Graffitiwear for the month of April. You just need your free group tag to pick it up.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • Fitmesh XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

Time for a Redeux

Purple Flowers

Time for a Redeux.

The Redeux event began April 14th (so if you go now you will probably miss the major laggy crowds) but it lasts until April 21st so there is still plenty of time to snap up the deals. Many booths are out featuring 30L and 35L deals as well as each booth offers a free gift (no group required!)

Picking flowers.

I was picking up my free gifts at the Redeux event, and I happened to pick the box at the Sexy Princess booth and brought home the purple flowered romper you see in the picture above. (TIP: I noticed that some of the boxes don’t deliver when you click them, but if you right click and select “give me” or “touch” they will deliver that way.) This spring romper seemed perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, and it offered some favorite body sizes as well as standard fitmesh sizes with a quality alpha.

Sizes in the box:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
