Lessons Learned and Freebies Found

MimisGizzaA five star resort they said!  Expansive sandy beach, luxury spa, valet service, free wifi, turn down service, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor pools as well as lush green gardens.  It all sounded so perfect for an impromptu overnight mini-vacation to unwind and be pampered.  The real excitig news is that it was HALF PRICE!  I threw some of my essentials in an overnight bag,  got dolled up for my fancypants adventure, and blew goodbye kisses to the furbabies…

I was dressed to the nines!

Thanks to a couple of fabulous freebies, I was dressed to the nines.  I had found the Tracy Strapless Dress, designed by Gizza at Mimi’s Choice priced at 0L in a gift box on the floor.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My Snazzy Gems

This Glittz Zania Jewelry Set that includes the necklace and earrings on my avatar comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the gems, pearls and metal.  It is available as a free group gift at Tres Chic with a free group join.

Upon Arrival…

/me takes off her hat and looks around…  Am I in the right place?  I checked my phone to double check the address…  It would appear the lush green gardens are growing out of those old rusted out cars behind me and the pool as a family of ducks living in it -.-.  I have been tricked by the magic of the interwebs…  once again!  I guess it’s true what they say in regards to hotels …  You get what you pay for.  I suppose I’ll have to make the best of it!

Flowers That Fly

Flowers That Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Now this is the way to start your vacation…….relaxing in a field of butterflies!  Those last few days of school are so hectic; it’s wonderful to savor the first few moments of freedom.  Just like Carson’s Angel, Ripley is not on his summer schedule yet, but our morning walk led me to a lovely patch of daisies full of fluttering butterflies…….pure magic!

All This is Free?

The bi-monthly Ultra Event is celebrating its first year anniversary with lots of freebies for members of the Ultra Society Group (free to join).  Blue boxes at the event contain gifts from a variety of generous designers.  I’m featuring two of them in my post today.  First of all, my lovely tresses, called Froukje, came from Mina.  I love the way the long bangs are tucked behind my ear, with a few wispy strands escaping on my forehead.  In the gift package, there is one shade called “new blond,” which is this gorgeous golden yellow hue.   Other color packs are available for purchase in the Mina store.  I have to admit, I visited there, and scooped up some additional colors because this hair style is just so “me.”

My second giftie from Ultra is the ornate Nadine Gem Bracelet from Modish.  Crafted in dark, gleaming gold with emerald stones, this delicate bracelet coordinated beautifully with my Dorothea dress (more on that in a moment!).  The floral motif was a perfect match for the butterfly theme.  Best of all, it’s completely free at the Ultra Sales Event!

These are just two of the many free gifts up for grabs at Ultra’s first anniversary celebration, which runs until June 15th.  (There are even some for guys).  I’d highly recommend a visit there!

Thanks for the Butterflies

Don’t Fly Away Yet!

The flirty Dorothea mini dress I’m wearing features a satiny teal texture with a cluster of golden butterflies soaring to freedom.  With slender shoulder straps and sexy slits in the skirt, this frock is ideal for the warm summer days to come.  It is a free gift from Sexy Princess for members of the Third Life Group.  There is a 10L join fee for this group, which gives you access to multiple gifts from many designers, so your investment goes a long way.

Butterflies…Flowers that Fly and All But Sing (~Robert Frost)

Although I’ve enjoyed my interlude with the “flying flowers,” it’s time for Ripley and I to tackle some of the many chores around the house that we put off until summer break.  Fun times!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I See Your True Colours

BlackRose
A Primary Pairing

Good morning Fabulouses!  BlackRose Fashion, usually puts out one group gift per month, but this month there are two of them!  I haven’t even had a chance to try on the first one yet which is a floral printed dress, but when this sweet 2pc set came up as a second group gift, I jumped right in it.  The bright primary colours just screamed at me to wear them… and so I did.

The BlackRose inworld group is free to join, so you have nothing to lose and plenty to gain!  The Pencil Skirt and Top Set include both the mesh pencil skirt and laced top with off-the-shoulder sleeves in a variety of mesh and mesh body specific sizes.  As these come in two pieces, you can even choose to wear them separate if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XS – XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Tonic
  • TMP

What’s The Point?

With the primary colours and straight lines this outfit features, I went with a simple gold triangle point necklace that I picked up at FaMESHed as a free Anniversary Gift.  The FaMESHed group is free to join and you can find this gift at the RealEvil Industries display.

Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – little bones. Queen – Past Group Gift (2015)

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

SkinEssences – Thea (Catwa & Omega) – Currently @Kustom 9

Sunglasses – ^^Swallow^^ Metropolitan Sunglasses – 50L for Hello Tuesday

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Skin – Essences  – Charlie [Catwa Catya Bento Applier] – Currently @Shiny Shabby

I’m sorry, BUT when you get home…  I’ll be wearing this 🙂

If you have something you need to make up for, make sure you grab this new SLF&O group gift at AsHmOoT.  He might just forget you deleted the house by accident this afternoon trying to clean up shopping bags when he sees you in this sexy lace bralet & slip set.  This sultry eye treat has got to at least distract him a little right?  The SLF&O group is free to join, so even if it doesn’t help, it won’t hurt!

Body Compatibility:

  • System Layers
  • Omega Appliers
  • Slink Appliers
  • Maitreya Appliers

Wish me luck.

Bad Romance at TCF

Bad Romance
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been such a long week, I’ll be so glad for the weekend. Weekend yearnings aside, I promised more of The Chapter Four Anniversary gifts, and I’m here to deliver. As I mentioned in my previous post, there is a 50L join fee for The Chapter Four group, which is a bit of a bummer, but I believe it’s worth it for these fantastic gifts.

Pr!tty Awesome Gift

Speaking of, this cute side-swept hairstyle is The Chapter Four Anniversary gift from pr!tty. This is one of those hugely generous gifts. Not only is the style a full fat-pack of colors, there are 3 color styles, rootless, medium roots, and heavy roots. There’s also a lower front version of the style. This FREE gift comes with the headband shown, and two additional headbands as well.

A Little Meow Meow

I really love the delicate detail of the two necklace combo that is the Supernatural TCF Anniversary gift. These adorable necklaces can be worn separately as well as together. Also, there is a hud included that will allow you to resize them for easy fitting.
Bad Romance 2

Going GaGa

I will tell you that I really don’t believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. However, I understand the concept, and Lady Gaga is a “guilty pleasure” of mine. That said, when I saw that the TCF Anniversary gift by Kraftwork was this sign that reads “bad romance”… yeah love it! If you’re not sure about the connection with Lady Gaga, it’s the title to one of her songs. The sign can be resized manually and has a faint glow.

White Lace

Lastly, this lingerie set is a Maitreya applier TCF Anniversary gift from Ambrosia. Just wear the applier hud and click it to apply both the top and bottom. Also, based on the name which you’ll see in the credits below, I expected the lingerie to be mauve. However, I’m not disappointed in the white lingerie. I think it looks very feminine and pretty.

This Pup Has Cast a Spell On Me

puppy

Hello Fabulouses!  There’s nothing like the companionship of a canine……always willing to lend a listening ear…..that tail wagging happily when you walk through the door.  I’m so thankful for my puppy pals!  Every day, they offer unconditional love, and teach me to live in the moment.

Time for a Little Side Trip

Yesterday, when I saw a group notice pop up about the new Spring Blue dress at Arcane Spellcaster, Ripley and I lived in the moment, and chose to detour over to the shop to pick up the lovely, free frock.  Featuring an ice blue top layer, and a deep, sky-blue skirt panel, this little number is packed with visual details such as the patterned, wrapped texture of the bodice panel which ends in a beaded fringe dangling down.  Its asymmetrical hemline, and slender shoulder straps emphasize your figure. In order to add Spring Blue to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group, which will set you back 250L, but there are multiple gifts available, including a special 1500 member Amosa Club structure, so you get a lot of return on your investment.

IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

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

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!
