3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

Uninspired

PRISM for MEN. The Ferran Outfit v2

Ain’t no cure for the winter-time blues…

Some days the motivation just isn’t there. You don’t want to work, you don’t want to write, and you don’t want to do much of anything. It’s not because you’re lazy or from the lack of energy, it’s because there is just isn’t the inspiration to give you the creative spark needed. It could also be the season. The blah days of winter always get me down. Or perhaps, something shiny and new could be catching your attention distracting you from the task at hand. I know I’ve been distracted lately and haven’t been as creatively funny as I’d like. But enough of my ramblings, today’s outfit comes from PRISM for MEN. The Ferran Outfit v2 is a FREE group gift from L’ Homme Magazine SL Reader’s Group by pasting this link in local chat  secondlife:///app/group/bbb3ae61-39ea-8674-8b3e-9a99867b911a/about  , where you can join the group for FREE and pick up this gift from the vendor at PRISM for MEN. This outfit comes in four sizes and two different textures.
Now I need to get back to work… Oh look, a shiny…

Heart! Triangulate and Listen

Not Today SLHello Fab Free’rs! I feel like it’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed sharing with you. Like some of the other bloggers I’ve been feeling a little blah recently, and perhaps a little restless. I think it’s this strange weather we have been experiencing out here in the southern United States. I also think I read something about Mercury being in retrograde. While I’m not sure exactly what that entails, I always see it associated with mental, physical, and emotional shenanigans. Even Second Life seems to be misbehaving more than usual. Whatever the reason, I hope things settle down soon for all of us! That said, I fell back on an old saying “look better, feel better” and picked out an outfit full of fun bright colors in effort to counteract all the blahs in both worlds.

TriangulateMaxi Gossamer – Sugar Heart Necklace

 The proverbial icing on the cake that is this wildly colorful outfit is the FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. This heart pendant necklace comes equipped with a detailed touch menu so you can customize the size and color of your necklace. Also included is a longer version of the necklace. Pru tried it on, and the long version hung down to her navel. It made me think of those long necklaces you’d wear with a sweater. The Maxi Gossamer group is FREE to join. To get your own copy of this FREE gift, just head to the Maxi Gossamer main store and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Eclectic Stars – Shimmy – Triangulate

If these pants don’t cheer you up, I’m afraid nothing will. They are a unique design from Eclectic Stars in an exclusive pattern especially for Fab Free group members. That’s right, these colorful pants are the most recent Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars. This generous gift includes specific sizes for Maitreya Lara, all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, and TMP. Additionally there are fitmesh and standard mesh sizes included. To get this FREE gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join, and click the gift vendor at Eclectic Stars.

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Risqué

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! Erratic, who is known for some of the sexiest, best fitting lingerie out there has a new group gift in store for their inworld group members!  This group is 100L to join, but I would have paid much more than that for this hot item, so it was a no brainer for me, and now I can look forward to future gifts by staying in the group too!

Get Risqué

If you like the sexy bralette I am wearing today, you can teleport over to Erratic and head straight to the Risqué Luxury Lingerie section where you can pick up their new group gift that includes this very feminine and foxy, made for Maitreya top that could be worn as a sheer top or as lingerie with your favourite panties.  It fits so snug to the body, that it appears to be applied right on, but it is indeed mesh.

Get Risqué in Colour

In my photo I am showing you the noir version, but it comes in all of the colours listed below:

  • Noir
  • Crimson
  • Frost
  • Ivory
  • Lilac
  • Mint
  • Plum
  • Rose

How to get your gift…

Either activate your Erratic group tag, or click the gift sign and look for the link in local chat to join.

TIP:  If you are ever having trouble joining a group that a group gift is set to (depending on your viewer – I am on Firestorm), instead of searching around for a group join sign, you can simply right click your mouse and “edit” the group gift giver.  In the General Tab you can find which group the gift is set to.  Click on that group and join it!  This doesn’t work every time…  but most times it does :).

Gonna Soak Up the Sun 

ADRIATIC line Blue Hoodie & Jean Shorts

Gonna tell everyone to lighten up…

I’m feeling the need to head down to the beach, find a sunny spot to sit and dig my toes in the sand. And today’s outfit is perfect for such an excursion. I was lucky enough to win the Men’s Jean Shorts with Dark Blue Belt from the Midnight Mania Board at Adriatic line.

The water’s still free…

And so is another group gift I found at Adriatic line. By joining the Third Life group (type or paste in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/22874c32-502f-f4d9-fbdc-97205dad4b13/about   and join the group for just $10L , the Dark Blue Men’s Hoodie can be yours by clicking the vendor.

Every time I turn around you’re looking up, I’m looking down…

My pose today comes from PosESion. The Hunter pose pack is just $60L as were many other pose packs located on the second floor for both men and women. I’m just going to sit here a and remember that I’ve got no one to blame for every time I feel lame…

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

Midnight Lake_002

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.
