Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/26/2017 – Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque Exterior
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a marvelous week and a very happy Friday. I’m excited about this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday featuring Belle Epoque! If you’ve never visited Belle Epoque before, you must go. The clothing style is very unique. I think of it as softly feminine with a little bit of fantasy and some definite vintage flair. I spotted everything from casual dresses to elegant gowns. Along with a variety of women’s clothing, there is a whole room of gachas to discover. As you enter the Belle Epoque main location from the beautifully landscaped entrance, you’ll be greeted with the usual information desk. Directly to the left is where you’ll find the Belle Epoque group gifts.
Belle Epoque Gifts
There are two FREE Belle Epoque group gifts. The Belle Epoque group is FREE to join as well. A bit further to the left, you’ll see the Fab Free exclusive group gift, and a gift for Teleport Hub group members. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You may recall Edi had previously blogged the exclusive FREE gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Ice Dreams.” Don’t miss out on the opportunity to pick up these lovely gifts, and explore a shop with truly unique style!

Get Wet

Get Wet

Surfin’ Safari…

I’ve really become a fan of going to surfing sims and riding the waves. It’s fun and, believe it or not, relaxing to hear the waves and ride over some of these mondo waves.  Today I’m boarding at San Blas Beach where the waves are high and the current is swift. I stopped by ::Mr.Poet:: and upstairs near the lucky boards was a rack of FREE gifts, no group needed. I picked up the Summer Tank Top that comes in three different prints. I’m also wearing the green Swimsuit I found at NEWCLOVER when they were having their new store celebration. but when I went back to check, it was no longer free. 😦  And what would a surfing post of mine be without a pose from Le Poppycock? (I said I played several rounds on the gacha) Today’s pose is called “Get Wet” from the Surf’s Up series. The pose comes with a texture changing surfboard in several colors. Each play of the gacha is just 50L. I’m going to paddle out to catch another wave.
If you haven’t tried surfing, you should give it a go!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

Catch a Wave

Catch a Wave

Surf’s up…

It’s finally time to head down to the beach for some much needed relaxation. I grabbed the board and I’m hoping the waves are big enough catch a few rides. The beach bunnies are already starting to flock to see who will catch the biggest wave of the day…

Tiki Time…

My look today is thanks in part to Prudence, who did a wonderful job on her Designer Friday post on Faboo, that you can read [HERE]. She mentioned there were group gifts for men, so I popped over to see what was available. With several gifts on the board to choose from, I decided to grab them all and see what would look good together. I paired up the Tiki Open Shirt and Low Rider Shorts in pistachio for a tropical flair. While the group is free to join, the gifts are  pay 1L , get 1L refunded.

Gacha every time…

I normally stay away from gacha machines. My one exception to that rule is when it comes to poses. I recently saw the *Surf’s Up* pose gacha at Le Poppycock and decided if I needed a surfboard pose, I’d be back…. long story short, I went back, and played… several rounds… The Catch a Few pose is just one of the few many poses I picked up for just 50L a pull. The surfboard has a color change HUD to give your board multiple looks.  I’m sure I’ll be showing you many more of this set before the days of summer have passed…

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

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

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend.  Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.  Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine, strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans.  The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline.  Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning.  Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground.  The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose.  Poor Ripley!  So much for trying to be helpful!  As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign.  “It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick.  He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Yesterday Once More

mom
When I was growing up, the world was a different place.  Some changes are for the better, and some are for the worse.  I remember it seemed like my Mom was just always cleaning.  I suppose it was her way of keeping busy.  There was no internet, no cable TV, crib night on Fridays, and bowling day was just on Mondays.  Whatever was a stay at home Mom to do the rest of the week?  Often times, I’d find her holding a cigarette in one hand, and the vacuum in the other, with The Carpenters spinning on the record player.  To this day, The Carpenters are still my cleaning music go-to 😉

Fashion Flashback

I came across this sweet Carole Outfit at I.M. Collection as a free SLF&O inworld group gift, and it gave me flashbacks of those old days.  The Carole Outfit includes the mint pants and the tropical printed cropped blouse as show on my avatar in several sizes for mesh bodies.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so you can pick this up with no cost at all to you!

Sizes included:

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

ps.  While you are at I.M. Collection, make sure you grab the store group gift Serena Showed you [HERE]!
