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…

You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Bo Peep

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I spent a lovely afternoon on the NorderNey sim, and even made a few new friends along the way.  They graciously agreed to pose for my picture with me.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Say Yes to the Dress

My gorgeous, antique white frock is a free gift from Lomomo.   With plenty of ruffles and a bow, this dress features frothy lace over a solid sheath underneath.  A belted high waistline draws the eye upward, while the skirt cascades down in a beautifully textured layer.  I love the way the over skirt forms the shape of an inverted “V” trimmed with ribbon.  Best of all, the Lomomo group is completely free to join, so this charming dress won’t cost you a single Linden dollar!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s another view so you can get a glimpse of the front side of my new lace dress:

Dreaming of Infinity

Timeless

Hello Fabulouses!  Happy weekend to you!  Ripley and I found a sweet free mini dress to share with you today, and combined it with some budget-friendly accessories to create my look.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Covered With White Lace

The foundation for today’s outfit is the light and airy Lace Mini from AlmaMiranda.   The free, June gift for members of the AlmaMiranda group, this sexy little sleeveless number features a high collar and a creamy white hue.  It hugs all your curves and offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   If you are daring, you can just wear the dress alone.  It is a bit see-through, so I chose to don a lacey lingerie set underneath, and pulled on a cropped denim jacket to cover up.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Lace mini in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Infinity

The Finishing Touch

For my one piece of jewelry, I slipped on the Bento Infinity Ring from Misha Jesuil, which I discovered for the promotional price of only 10L on the Marketplace.  This simple, yet elegant thumb ring is designed only for Maitreya Bento hands and required no adjusting whatsoever.  I’m not sure how long this special price will last, so if you would like to scoop up this charming bauble for yourself, I’d recommend doing so soon.

I hope you find time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nautically Inclined

Nautically Inclined

Ships Ahoy! Look out for land! I admit in real life I never learned to swim, but that never kept me off the boats. I’ve always had a love for boats and everything nautical! I love to fish, rather it be small ponds or deep sea fishing. And you’ll never catch me passing up a boat ride. So this outfit I ran across today, had me really smiling!

Ready to sail.

I’m ready for sailing weather, or even to sit dockside, in my new Sailing Day Outfit by Tam. It only cost me 1L and a little hunting time as part of the June Effects Hunt. I went to the Tam main-store and hunted down the little life preserver and the shorts and top were mine!

It comes in a variety of sizes including:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS- XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Worth mentioning!

It’s over the 75L limit, but I know you’ll forgive me when you see the deal that I got on my hair! I stopped by the Hairology event which began on June 10th and visited the EMO-tion’s booth. Hair at this booth is 50% off, and I picked up my new Claudia hairstyle for just 122L per pack. It was such a good deal that I wanted to share it with you, even if it was over the usual limit, in case you are a hair fanatic like moi!

A Cynfully Sweet Summer Night

Cynfully Sweet

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  Ripley and I have a few lovely gifts to share with you today…. one of them is available for a limited time only, so if you like it, please act quickly.

A Time Sensitive Top

My cute, Ness cropped top is quite time sensitive, so if you are interested in scooping it up, I’d suggest teleporting to the Cynful booth at the Les Fest as soon as possible.  I just discovered that the event ends today.  This location has an adult rating, so in order to pick up the gift, you will have to be able to visit an adult area in SL.  With a realistic texture and slender shoulder straps, this free knotted shirt  will pair beautifully with a long skirt, as I have chosen for my outfit, or a pair of shorts for a more casual look.  I opted for a neutral gray solid hue, but the gift includes a HUD which offers you a choice of solid, print or ombre textures in a variety of tones.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Long Wavy Tresses

My hair today is another of the many free gifts you can gather at the SL14B Community Celebration.  Available at the Alice Project booth, the Mercedes II hair is a lovely center parted hairstyle.  The package includes a basics HUD with 15 texture options ranging from the white I chose to wear, blonde, red, brown or black to the more exotic aqua, light blue, and pink.  I love this simple, wavy hairdo.  It’s so feminine and soft.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Meet Me at the Disco!

Meet Me at the Disco

Friday Night Fever has hit early for me and I am trying to get my dancing in quick because I have a busy day ahead. Thankfully I have the perfect disco clothes for a quick dance to start my weekend off right!

The arrow points this way —>

To BYRNE! Stop by BYRNE and slap that subscriber board and pick up the free June subscriber gift that is this Arrow Long Shirt. Depending on your windlight setting, it will look black and white, or like in my picture it will have a colorful sheen to it! The texture is intriguing and unique, and I really love it.

Sizes included: Hourglass and Maitreya (and a pair of bonus earrings which I opted not to wear in the picture).

It’s 50L Friday!

Quick! Stop by Wasabi Pills while you can! This gorgeous hairstyle called Nahia in an exclusive color pack is only 50L for today. Since I was disco dancing I opted to go a different shade than my usual and picked out a red and pink style that I thought complimented my outfit. This fun hair is mesh and the package includes a standard size hair, as well as a size to fit “chesty” avatars.

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!

Deja Vu & Gifts For You

Sissboomsentinus
Hey there Fabulouses! I’m just taking some time to myself after work tonight on my deck doing a little light reading, while it is still nice and sunny.  I am SO glad that the summer months are drawing near so that I can enjoy the outside once again.  Winter months are just awful here leaving in the dark and coming home in the dark!

So what’s my post all about today?

My attire today is put together with some really great group gift finds that I will tell you about below:

Deja Vu!

This hairstyle called Deja was previously released as a group gift in the TRUTH inworld group (300L to join), and was previously blogged by Kathryn [HERE], but I wanted to give it a re-mention because it has been re-released as a Truth group gift in the updated colours and with the stylist HUD!  Even if you have this gift from before when it came out, make sure you pick up the update in notices!

Siss Boom Has Me Tongue Tied

The wrapped top you see me wearing today is called Tongue Tied and is available as a free group gift to members of the Siss Boom inworld group.  It comes in black, gold and silver and is available in several sizes as listed below.  This group is 500L to join, but there is a load of gifts on the VIP wall to grab!

Sizes included:

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

Free Jeans!

One can never have too many pairs of jeans, and these ones in particular are worn and torn in all the rip places… The Mariya cuffed jeans are a free group gift at Sentinus for joining their FREE inworld group.  Sizes included are mesh XXS – L and an alpha layer is provided.
