Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:

This EMPIRE is LODEd

Goth Love
Hello Fab Free’rs! So I hope I am not alone in the thought that one of the best things about holidays like Valentine’s Day is the discount chocolate you can buy the days following the actual holiday?! Let’s just say I think I’ve had more than my fair share of Valentine candy. That little shameful confession aside, there is one compulsion I am not at all ashamed of, my addition to freebies! Why else would I be here, right? For the first time in much too long I made it out to the EMPIRE main store. I caught notice of their February group gift and picked up the January gift while I was there. Additionally I was excited to see these gorgeous flowers in the LODE group notices.

Take a LODE off FabFree

I could write an entire post and then some about how much I love everything I’ve ever seen from LODE. I won’t, but I could. The recent group gift sent out in the group notices is truly gorgeous. These lovely black freesia flowers are set in a tall slender glass vase. I want to place them in every room of my house. The LODE group is just 10 lindens to join. Yes, I said ten. Also, this gift is a group exclusive color. You won’t find this color of the freesia flowers for sale in the shop. Pay the ten lindens to join the LODE group and check the past notices before this beautiful gift is gone.

Purple Empire
This is Why I EMPIRE

As I mentioned, there are two group gifts currently still available at EMPIRE. Now I know that EMPIRE is one of those shops with a high group join fee.  The EMPIRE group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however, look at these gifts! The dress Pru is wearing is February’s group gift while these incredible shoes are the January group gift. I could really just end my post right there. That would be enough information for me! lol I’m genuinely excited about these gifts though, and I want to tell you more about them starting with the dress.

February Group Gift at EMPIRE 

Considering EMPIRE is known for their shoes, I was delighted to see this sexy spaghetti strap dress is the February group gift. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed in anything from EMPIRE, group gift or otherwise, and this dress does anything but disappoint. The mesh is curvy in all the right places, and fits very well. It comes in mesh sizes to fit all 3 Belleza bodies, and Maitreya Lara. Also included is a color change HUD that lets you choose from 20 unique colors. Additionally, you can change the color of the straps separately for a touch of added detail. You’ll find this gift along with January’s waiting for you at the EMPIRE main store.

January Group Gift at EMPIRE

First I want to start by saying I’m not certain how long these shoes will remain available. I’m not knowledgeable about how long the previous month’s gift will remain available once the new gift is out. EMPIRE does a monthly group gift. That said, run run run before these shoes are gone! I know we’ve seen a lot of caged boots recently, but I have to admit these are drool worthy.  These thigh high shoes have an added optional detail that I love as well. There are tiny studs that you can choose to wear with the boots or leave them off. If you look closely in the above photo you’ll see the studs on Pru’s boots. Included with the gift is a color change hud that will allow you to choose between this dusty purple color and a pastel pink for the main parts of the shoe, there are 8 color options for the sole, and for the studs you can  pick between 3 metallic textures, and 3 gem-like textures. As always with EMPIRE, the shoes will fit Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and TMP, bodies/feet. Needless to say I believe the EMPIRE join fee is well worth it. If you haven’t joined already, do so and score the current gifts, while you also keep from missing out on future gifts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Blinded by Love

Love is blind

My whole heart…

It is the day for love… a day when hearts open up and express their truest feelings. I’m keeping my gift simple today. No hearts or flowers, although I have given her many gifts over he past several days (free of course…shhh). But she will know that my gift comes from my whole heart. I found the You Have My Heart Wall Hanging by COVETED as a FREE gift at the Broken Heart Fair . Each booth has a gift available, but you need to hurry up, the fair closes on the 15th.

My whole life…

I found the AJ-#5 Red Outfit and the Aaron Necklace by Tori’s Stylez at the Menstuff Lounge. This is a FREE gift to members but has a joining fee of $50L. The Casey Boots are a FREE gift to members at A&D Clothing . The A&D group is FREE to Join.

Love is blind…

Finally, Addams has put out a FREE gift to it’s members. The Aurora Blindfold comes with a resizer and color change HUD for both the blindfold and the lettering. I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day… I know I will!

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.

Let’s Talk About L O V E

Snapshot_002

Hey FabFree! I am back real quick to share some more freebie news with you today!  I even grabbed Carson from his evening shopping run (which I am usually not allowed to interrupt) to come and show off a great new couples gift.  As you can see he is already planning his exit with his eye on the door… because …

Hello Tuesday is just for one day!

Carson had just picked up the  A&D Vest & Shirt at the Cosmopolitan Sim location for 50% off – priced only at 100L for today only.  There are plenty of other great stops on the sim with items either 50% off or priced at 50L, so have a stroll and check it out!  You might even see him there.

Stop in at Rowena’s Designs Too

Today as I was picking up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Rowena’s Designs [freshly announced HERE], I noticed that they also had this sexy Gwen dress as a free SLF&O group gift!  This smoking hot dress comes with a texture change hud for several different colours and also includes several sizes for different body types.

Let’s Talk About Love

You know…  I’m a sucker for stuff with my name on it and when Carson saw the new group gift at Earthworx , he knew I had to have it.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Earthworx has put out a lovely decorative Floor Shelf with a potted glitter heart that comes in at just 6 prims.  The funny part was… after it was all set up, I noticed it had 3 couples dance animations in it!  The pose we are in is from one of the three animations.  What a sweet  bonus 🙂  This group is 25L to join.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Snapshot_003Hi there Fabulous Readers!   I don’t know about you, but I for one can appreciate an expressive man…  It would be a real shame to have to tear all the petals off of this beautiful velvety bouquet of roses and play the game of “he loves me, he loves me not”.  First of all it would take forever, and then all I would have left is a bunch of pokey sticks and a mess to clean up.  I am not saying it wouldn’t be fun…  for the first few roses, but come on… there are at least 48 in this bunch!  I’d be plucking petals for days.

Come Up Smelling Like A Rose

If you’d like to come up smelling like a rose to someone special in Second Life, Scandalize has just the free gift for you!  This inworld group is free to join, and once you activate your inworld group tag, you can pick up a ton of group gifts in the way of dresses, lingerie, swimwear and jewelry as well as this lovely HUGE bouquet of roses.

I have pulled my camera in very close to parade the beautiful texture of the roses, but also wanted to mention that the sparkly black Tiara dress that I am wearing is also a free group gift.  Kathryn has also shown us a couple of the other group gifts that are still available at Scandalize [HERE], and [HERE].

Every Rose Has It’s Thorn

It’s true…  and the thorn here is that it’s no transfer so you won’t be able to give these lovely flowers away to someone, but they will be a very nice gesture to be rezzed out  as décor for your slover this Valentines Day all the same.  Better yet – bring your sweetie to the shop and have her/him pick up their very own holdable copy! ❤
