Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere

wellmadegg
Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s gotta be 5 o’clock somewhere right?  I don’t drink all that often, but on a hot summer day, I enjoy a margarita – frozen or on the rocks, no matter! If it’s really good tequila, I’ll even drink it straight ;).    I know a lot of people take offence to tequila, and  I do have a rocky relationship with it myself.  The way I see it is this…  Tequila is kind of like that bad-ass boyfriend you know is going to be detrimental for you in the end, but you put up with his beastly behavior and risk it because you are enjoying the ride.

It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care

What inspired my fast forward into mid summer beverages on the patio, is this breezy little floral blouse I picked up at Wellmade as a free group gift!  It comes in fitmesh and several mesh body sizes as listed below and also includes a texture change HUD that allows for another print as well.  I have added the vendor ad below so that you can see them both 🙂

[WellMade] Alee Top

Sizes Included:

Flirty Florals and Spring Ribbons

Sweet Spring

Hey there FabFree! The warm weather I have been having in my part of the real world this weekend, (and when I say warm… I mean +13 Celcius, and after the -30 we have had all winter – this feels like suntanning weather!) inspired me to put on a little spring outfit inworld.  You know me…  I always try to work something free in, and today it’s my shoes and skirt, which I will tell you about below!

Flirty Florals

The Mint Rose Flirty Skirt I am wearing today is available for free in a lucky board at Petite Mort!  You’ll need to be a member of the Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group, however this group is currently free to join.  There are actually four boards, and you can see two of the other prizes previously blogged on FabFree [HERE].

Sizes Included:

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

Spring Ribbons

Previously on FabFree, Aline has told you all about the new group lucky boards at Empire (with a free group join) in her Fly Gal Post [HERE], and while she scored up some sweet bow flats, I won the Lavender ribbon wedges!  You can fully customize these beautiful sandals with a texture change HUD that allows for 20 different colours.  Remember, you’ll need to be in the free to join Empire group to participate in the group lucky boards, not the group with the fee.

Sizes Included:

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

A little trick:  If you have trouble finding a group joiner to pick up a group gift or participate in a group offer such as lucky boards or midnight manias, simply go into edit on the offer board or gift and click on the group it is set to to open up the profile.  It works “most times”.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 7Deadly Skins

7Deadly Skins Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Real Life has got me away from my life in SL more than usual lately but today I have the fun of introducing this week’s Fab Free designer of the week, 7Deadly Skins. The 7Deadly Skins store is beautifully done and the landing point is as pretty as the skins the shop has to offer. Here you’ll find both male and female skins on multiple floors, and gifts for the guys as well as the ladies. Along with gifts there’s a sale currently going on, and you’ll find that 7Deadly Skins is participating in several events with opportunities to purchase their skins at event prices. As you enter the store you’ll find the group gift of the month for ladies and one for the gents behind the front desk. The 7Deadly Skins group has a one time join fee of 275 linden. Along with the monthly gifts, there are group only lucky boards, mini mania and more!
7Deadly Skins Events & Offers
The top photo shows the current group gifts for 7Deadly Skins members. You’ll want to be sure to check out the events area for all the current and up-coming events and offers. Also toward the back of the shop you’ll find the group Mini Mania, Midnight Mania boards, and Lucky Letters. There are also two Mini Mania boards marked as “no group” so even non 7Deadly Skins Group members can get in on the fun. Last but never least, you’ll find the free and exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members waiting for you in one of the boxes under the Saturday Sale sign. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag for this one. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is free to join. Happy shopping Fab Free’rs!

Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails ~Elizabeth Edwards

 Sometimes in life and SLife you just have to force yourself to give up on what’s not working and move towards a different goal.  It can be a a life changing decision or it can be something as small as knowing when to give up on a photography location that isn’t working. I must have stood in the same spot, switching angles, and lighting and poses for what seemed like an eternity yesterday even though I loved the sim I was on – when finally after trying and trying, I had to force myself to move to a different sim.  All I needed to do was adjust my sails to the Yasmina sim, and it felt like it all came together.  I think it was probably just one of those days, but I sure wish I wasn’t so stubborn to try something different earlier!

Love, stop babbling and get to the free stuff
