Spending A Little, Getting A Lot

Snapshot_017Hello there Fabulouses!  Last month on FabFree, I featured a really cute group gift by Mishchino [HERE], and I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip down there again this month to see what was new in the shop.  Boy was I glad that I did!

Sold For 20L!

I *think* there is a new group gift to pick up there, and I will have to go back and check lol, because my eyes zoomed straight to this mermaid scale printed dress and I was lost in the sale.  I nearly fell over when I saw it was priced at just 20L.  There are several of the Olivia Dresses in different prints for sale on the same rack for just 20L as well.  There was no Maitreya version included for the body I normally wear, however the medium mesh size fit me just fine with the use of the Maitreya Lara Alpha HUD.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus & Isis
  • Belleza Freya Natural, Perky & Pushup

A Couple Shopping Additions…

Since I was out saving a bundle of lindens (I’d have spent so much more on that dress… just sayin), I had a little extra for some Cosmopolitan Sales Room Finds!  I added a close up shot below so you can see the ARTE Shimmer Eyeliner and Supernatural Splash Necklace that are both available at great prices at the new round of Cosmo Sales Room.

Don’t Get Up

Snapshot_007
This is exactly what my RL dog does when he doesn’t want me to get up. He’ll just lay across me, so I can’t easily move in hopes that I don’t bother.  Fortunately my RL dog is much smaller than my SL variety.

Previously on FabFree…

I have shown you a couple of group gifts that are available at Just Ordinary, but the gifts don’t stop there!

  1. Anything But Just Ordinary
  2. Pick Up!  I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

I quite like the Isabelle Dress as shown on my avatar as it’s perfect for an easy breezy casual kind of day and it gets bonus points for being free too.  You can actually pick up more than a handful of free group gifts when you join the free inworld group at Just Ordinary.

Isabelle’s Size Range:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XS-XL Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

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

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.

Close Your Eyes And Float

EzmeraldasSummerLovinHunt1LSILENCE!

Can you think of anything more relaxing that silently floating in the clear blue sea?  I suppose there are a few things that could be “up there”, but for me, not much tops it.  The sun warms your skin and the water drowns out all of your worries and cares.  The water pretty much forces you to be at peace, because the second you tense up, it sucks you under like it’s trying to teach you a lesson.

Get your own gold bikini!

I am very happily floating in my new Beach Bikini that I picked up for just 1L at Ezmeralda’s for the Summer Lovin Hunt.  This Bikini comes with system layers and an omega applier as well as the bows with beads which add on at the hips, back and center of the chest.  Until the end of June, you can find the hidden beach ball hunt icon in the store and purchase it for 1L.

This Wild Hair…

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant Cocomuel and is one of the styles available at The Arcade Gacha for just 75L per play.  The cool thing about these unique hairstyles that are awesome for photography is that they come with bento poses!

Happy hunting… and floating!

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pick Up! I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

Pick Up! I'm Calling You On My Banana PhoneThe banana phone is not necessarily a very effective mode of conversation, however it’s worth a shot when nothing else works and if it still fails at the very least – onlookers will be entertained.

In this blog post I have news about a new group gift at Poeme and also am revisiting Just Ordinary to show off a free instore group gift.

More of the extraordinary

I had recently blogged a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift that is available at Just Ordinary and if you liked that one shown here – you’ll love this one too!  The Char Dress in Denim Flowers that you see me wearing today is available as a free gift for Just Ordinary inworld group members (free to join!)

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic

Now About Those Shoes…

When you join the Poeme inworld group (has a 1L group join fee), you gain access to the Double Happy Roses Chucks in the floral Rhyme print.  They were just what I needed for today’s ensemble, so it was perfect timing that I came by them!

Shoe Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Unrigged + Alpha Layer

Just One Last Thing!

The Endless Summer Hello Sunshine pose that I am using today includes the bananas (for making phone calls of your own) and is available in an instore gacha at 50L per play at Le Poppycock!
