Misty Morning Walk

Misty Morning

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!   Walking for exercise must be a new, healthy trend for the Fab Free Bloggers, because just like Carson, Ripley and I headed out for another morning walk.  This time, we explored the Sea Foam sim.  With rose-pink flowers carpeting the ground, and mist rising off the water, the pup and I set out.  We paused to snap a quick photo before continuing our journey through this beautifully landscaped sim.

Nothing Gets Between Me and My Purple

When I was a new SL resident, a friend introduced me to The Free Dove, which is a wonderful shop packed full of free gifts ranging from shoes, to clothing to hair.  Every so often, Ripley and I travel back there to check out the new offerings.  I am so glad we visited this week because while we were there, my hound with a nose for fashion sniffed out a Fabulous Find to share with you.  The free, curve-hugging Justine dress I am sporting in my picture is a sleek, sleeveless number with a fun, asymmetrical hemline.   I love the way the fabric is slightly gathered with realistic folds.  A zipper on the left side of the skirt adds a whimsical touch.  The generous designer at Finale Couture also tucked the free, perfectly-coordinated Justine heels into the package, so I came away with a complete outfit!  Best of all, the frock and footwear were in my favorite color – purple!  (The box said “eggplant,” but to me, it’s a lovely shade of purple).  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to scoop up this lovely dress, but joining is free.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Justine dress in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Justine heels

Now It’s Time For a RL Walk…

I am truly enjoying the cooler mornings that we are experiencing now in the desert.  According to Siri, 78 degrees is “hot,” but to me, it’s a fabulous treat.  Ripley and I are off to explore in the early fall morning.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Stretching It Out

Stretching It Out

Morning Routine…

For roughly three months now, I’ve been getting up every morning and going for a walk/jog. It started small at first, a quarter of a mile, then a half mile, etc. (no Love, I will not do the metric conversions for you). After I started back to work, I have been arriving early and using the on site facilities to continue my morning routine. I am now up to 2.5 miles every day, seven days a week. That’s all before breakfast.

Workout Wear…

For my running gear today I put together from some free and not free items.  I found the Leman Pants at Prism for Men , another L’Homme Magazine group gift. The gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join. The Jeffery Tank from A&D Clothing is not free (199L), but I thought it went well with the pants The tank also comes with a necklace. I won my FREE running shoes, the “Trey” Graffiti Kicks at Rebellion off the Midnight Mania Board. The gifts rotate daily and you don’t need a group tag to touch this board, so check and see what’s on the board today.

Ok, I need to run…seriously I’m stretched and ready to run…. Later!

Summer’s Last Sunset

Summer's Last Sunset

A Sad Farewell…

As we say goodbye to summer (Goodbye summer, we will miss you.) and move into fall (Hi fall, how are you?), I reflect back on the summer of ’17. I’m glad it’s past but I am going to miss the warm days, the summer breeze,  and the sun setting later in the evening.

A Gift to be Happy About…

I’ve slipped out of my skin today and into a new FREE Mesh Avatar from ExMachina. If you are wanting to experiment with a mesh avatar or have a newbie friend, this would be a good starter for them. The best part, the group is FREE to join. I’m also wearing a pair of Swimsuit Shorts by !BBN! that is free to members of the Menstuff group. The group has a one time join fee of 50L but there are several gifts on the wall to make the lindens worth it.

♫ Though we gotta say goodbye, to the summer
Baby I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss  ♫

Finding a Pearl

Where Time is Never Planned

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I visited Soul2Soul Bay, he befriended this little pup with a nose for a good book.  I couldn’t resist posing near the cute fella and snapping a quick photo.  Isn’t he adorable?

Pearly White Lace

My cream colored halter top today is part of a free gift offered by SnB Fashion to members of the Teleport Hub group.  I love the delicate lace layered over a solid white, bustier-styled top.  The package also includes a lacey skirt, but since the pupster and I were wandering up and down the beach, I opted to slip on a pair of faded blue jeans instead of the dressier skirt.  The gift contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh body versions of the outfit, so it’s quite versatile indeed.  The Teleport Hub group has a 10L join fee, but group membership makes you eligible for a plethora of gifts scattered around the grid, so your linden dollars are well-spent.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has been having a great week so far. Mine has been a tad hectic irl, but that’s what Second Life is for! I’m excited to be here with you to share the latest FREE group gift from the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. Before I continue I want to specify that there are 2 groups at Pacagaia Creations. This gift is for the group that is FREE, not the VIP group which has a join fee.  I also picked up a cute little collar on the Marketplace for cheap.

Ruffled

This sweet and sexy skirt and bustier combo is the FREE group gift for the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. The set is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Also included is a color change hud that gives you 3 options, the black with pink ruffles shown, a pale pink version with a floral ruffle, and a deep red with a black ruffle. You can also change the skirt and top separately.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Tiny Heart

Feelin’ a little feline, I poked through the Marketplace in search of a cute collar/choker to wear with the outfit from Pacagaia Creations. Fortunately I found one! This cute little choker is just 20 lindens on the Marketplace from a shop called Layla’s Workshop. It has a simple heart dangle and is equipped with resize scripts.

Ice Cream Man

Ice Cream Man

 

♫ I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
Oh my my, I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy ♫

Redecorating with 31 favors…

While I was on “leave”, It seems that Love redecorated the FabFree Info Hub. She added a quaint little ice cream bar on the side of the building. If I wasn’t on a diet (stupid doctors), I’d be eating the ice cream instead of serving it.

Basic Black(berry)…

Today’s outfit is a L’Homme Magazine group gift located at KIB Designs. The L’Homme Pants and Shirt Outfit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a very business or semi-formal look. I’m putting this outfit in my closet rotation.

Wait… fruit flavored ice cream is still fruit, right?

He Loves To Hate

Snapshot_003

Friend or Foe?

My real life dog just loves to hate one particular cat on my block.  That darn cat was strutting around right outside the front window where he watched her, certainly teasing him on purpose but he thought she wanted to be friends.  Finally one day, someone had left the door open to bring some groceries in which made for the opportune moment for him to make his off-leash move.  He dashed out the door, scared the fur off the cat and chased her around the fence.

FOE!

Now… he just wanted to get to know each other, but this cat was not having it.  I ran out to bring him back, and heard “SWAT!  HISS” and then “YIPE YIPE YIPE!“.  He came running back home, unharmed but with his tail between his legs and a new perception on his feelings for her.  Even when I point the cat out now (who is still strutting her stuff at the window btw), he wants nothing to do with her!

Get on with it, Love!

Now, enough of my jibber jabber – let’s talk freebies!  I couldn’t help myself with the story, because as I sit here writing this blog entry… The cat is outside, and the dog – in the window.

The brown jersey knit dress you see me wearing in my photo today is a free group gift by COCO.  Compatible with Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, this casual treat is even more cute from the back as it offers a cut out wrapped design.  I have included the vendor ad below so that you can see it.

COCO is always free to join, offering a ton of gifts in the VIP section, including the gift Serena recently showed [HERE].
