Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Soap Is Slippery Business, That Ain’t No Lye!

Snapshot_003
Good afternoon Fabulous Readers! Today I am stopping in to share news about a new group gift with a fatpack of dresses and tell you a little real life secret of mine.

Fatpacking Hali

Serena recently blogged about a gorgeous group gift at Miss Chelsea [HERE], and they have released an awesome fatpack of the jersey dresses called Hali as shown below.  This group is 100L to join, but between the gown that Serena previously showed that is still available and this fun fatpack, it’s worth every little linden you’ll have to part with to join.

Sizes included:

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

.miss chelsea. hali dress - group gift @ the main store now!

 

My Undirty Little Secret

I am sure you all know that my biggest shopping crutch in Second Life is probably… hair, and that is a sweet spot for many of us girls here on the grid, but we all have real life shopping crutches too, and one of mine…  is handmade soap!

I can’t get enough of the bubbly stuff.  I have stacks and baskets, and bags full and still buy more.  On occasion I’ll even make some myself!  Anyways, I pretty much “SQUEEEE-ed” when I came across the new Soap Collection Gacha Set by Kraftworks at this round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room, I couldn’t help myself!  This machine is just 50L per play and offers 9 commons and 1 rare (the scale).

I really thought the slippery soap should have been the rare, because it’s so funny.  I did another little GIF to show you what happens when you rez the Slippery Soap and sit on it.

The Dreaded Daylight Saving Time…

I’m totally not a fan. Pick a time and leave it is my motto. This jumping back and forth is outdated and needs to fade away. Since I get an extra hour of sunshine (ask me about that tomorrow morning when I’m walking the dog in the dark) I thought I’d get outside and begin the spring cleanup of the yard. I’ve pick out a casual outfit suited for yard work. I picked up The March group gift at the Orchid Store. The Adrian Skull Shirt is something I wouldn’t mind getting a little dirty. That would make it look more “authentic”. Both the group and the gift are free, but it is a pay $1L, get $1L back for each. I also stopped by AGATA and grabbed their latest group gift, the Dana Stripe Pants. This is also a FREE gift to members and the group is FREE to join. My Mesh Clogs (she thinks they are not a good fashion choice, but they are so dang comfortable) are a subscriber gift at A&D Clothing that Edi previously showed [HERE] . Just tap the subbo and the shoes are yours. The clogs also come with a texture changing HUD for your choice of colors.

Squirrelly Weather…

With the strange weather this winter, I already have flowers starting to grow. I hope the snow that is expected tomorrow doesn’t kill them off. I’ll mulch them in good and hopefully they will be protected. My outdoor decor comes from the Vintage Gacha Fair. Both the Natural Woodland Stump with Flowers and the  Chickadee Birdhouse are both FREE booth gifts from Kitty Creations. Each booth has a gift, it is worth the effort (and lag when I was there) to grab them all. I also needed some yard tools. I found the Garden Tools form Death Row Designs on the Marketplace for just $40L. I better get back to work before it gets dark… oh yeah, I have that extra hour now…

Get Your Goose!

GooseGG

Hi there FabFree!  Today I am switching it up a little bit and have decided to show you some cool outdoor décor rather than an outfit.

I came across this awesome, and very big Broken Wall at the landing point at GOOSE, set out as a free group gift.   It has a land impact of just 5 which is very low for such a large item and it comes with the couple/solo animated pillows too.  This gift can be all yours with a 50L group join fee.

Have a peek around at the landing point, there are a few group gifts set to other groups that are free to join too!

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!

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.
