Belle and Pearls Are a Girl’s Best Friends

We probably all remember the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” I remember thinking: “But diamonds are hard and why do boys get dogs?!” Because dogs were man’s best friend — what was up with that? Life was so unfair! Well MINA @ the Hair Fair, Belle Epoque and Empyrean Forge are here to save the day with outstanding fashion (as usual!) to make up for all the insanity!

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [2]

I had spent a hard day’s work braving Hair Fair, where I picked up this amazing FREE gift from MINA @ the Hair Fair called Selenia. This gift is only available in Grey tones (which was fine by me as it fits my roleplay character (a glass fae) just perfectly! But it would also be terrific for mature looks or even in the very lightest shade to pass for a platinum blonde.

The great thing is that this is one of those second chance gifts! You first saw this hair HERE where it was blogged as an amazing find by Love Trill at The Arcade Gacha! So if you missed it then, now it’s available for a second go ’round!

My next stop was a quick jump to Belle Epoque for their amazing FREE group gift which is perfect for any roleplayer’s wardrobe and can be worn as is — or over the top of system clothes or applier clothes for more modesty if desired. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE as well. It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes, and includes three great colors (I’m only showing you the green but there is also a beautiful blue and a fabulous brown shade inside the package as well!).

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [1]

I had decided that the evening now called for a little relaxation, which meant I headed home to sit by the fire and did the rest of my shopping via the marketplace where I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite designers — Empyrean Forge — is spoiling us all with a special promo! A 1L giftie of their Contessa ring in either a lustrous white or sexy black pearl option (depending upon which way you go)!

This is great because you can give it as a gift to a friend as well if you like. I finished my look off with a lovely manicure set by alaskametro in a french silver finish for slink hands. The applier kit is on the Marketplace and has a great palette choice of 25 colors for only 25L. That’s a hard deal to beat for such a great color set!

In case you were wondering, yes I did splurge. With all the mullah I saved on my other goodies for this get-up, I did buy the jewelry that matches the Contessa ring! Empyrean forge is offering a lovely matching necklace and matching bracelet and with a color change hud, each with two metal choices, and 12 gemstone finishes. I just couldn’t resist!

Into the depths of the sea

Finally… the weekend! Hello again, FabFree Folks, I hope your weekend is going well in SL and RL. I hope you’re making time for some of the great new Hunts going on all over the grid. I plunged into the Atlantis Hunt this weekend and I found some lovely prizes to show you.

Into the depths of the seaFirst up, this is the ‘Claire Dress in Ocean’ from Wicked. This is a deceptively simple dress but it’s very sleek and elegant without being fussy or formal. I love the ombre dye look and the color is so lovely.  Even though the dress has a higher neckline, it makes the perfect back drop for the ‘Atlantis’ necklace from Never Ever. This is a unisex prize though it does come in two sizes for gals and guys.   Lastly, I’m wearing the ‘Atlantis – Silver’ for SLink nails from La Boheme. You get both the mani and pedi with both silver and gold accents. Atlantis Collage

There are thirty eight stops on the 0L Atlantis Hunt and there is a very nice variety of prizes for men, women and the home.  This Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay!

50s TV sitcom moment!

50s TVs sitcom momentsWhile I normally shy away from house work in SL this Time for Tea hunt prize has inspired a retro 50s TV sitcom moment for me. This is the American Bazaar prize [AB] Babydoll dress. The hint for this cute mesh dress is “Have you ever tried to go to tea in a denim Bustier?  ” You are looking for a green leaf and the cost is 1L. I am totally feeling like June Cleaver vacuuming in my pearls.

50s TV sitcom moments Continuing my retro Saturday I have slipped into this FREE FA Creations GG Paige outfit you get the lace top, bolero jacket and jacquard print pants. All the pieces can be worn as separates. This look just begged for a simple little pair of flats which I was able to pick up for 10L at Mute. I couldn’t pass up a pull on the gatcha machine over at Izzie’s to get one of these retro camera necklace to complete my look. Its after 5 someplace so I think its ok to have a drink winks.
50s TV sitcom moments
My skin is the FREE July GG at 7Deadly Sk{i}ns and includes slink, Tango and Phatazz appliers. There is a 50L group join fee but its well worth it for this skin since it comes with blonde, brunette, red and black eyebrows which is rare in a FREE skin gift. The group tag also allows you to acess to the camping chairs, monthly group skins, contests and store discounts. My nails while not very easy to see are a french tip with a cat face pattern on them. Well worth the trip over to La Boheme to do the Cat hunt. This prize costs 1L. They are clues for this and all their hunts are in a treasure chest on the counter in the shop.

Kindred Spirits

Hello my FabFree Dears! I hope no one minds that I’m doing two ‘Fairy’ themed posts in a row. I couldn’t resist when I saw that BlueMoon Enterprises had put out this great new Group Gift: The Summer Fae.

bluemoon_002

I’m sure our readers who are more role play inclined are familiar with BlueMoon, the shop is full of beautiful RPG / fantasy/ medieval clothes and items. But even if you aren’t “one of us”, you can still appreciate this gorgeous dress. You get the lovely underdress, I’m showing, plus the gossamer wings and a lovely lace-like over dress. I’m also wearing the “Baby’s Breath Wreath w/ Butterflies” from Tamiron Forge and it’s a prize in the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt going on till July 19th. The Medieval Fantasy Faire has a ton of great designers and a gacha garden as well. I was unable to find a web site for them ( other than what I’ve posted here) or a list of the Mini Hunt participants. If any of y’all out there have that info I’d be thrilled to get it.

Another prize in the Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt is the ‘Celtic’ necklace from Acios.  The simple elegant design is compliments by the huge HUD wil four metal choices and the twelve stone color choices. I love it when one piece can go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

Update – This is the Hunt Object for the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt. Hope this helps out a little.

Lets Play Hooky!

new713-1

Man, another Monday?  Lets all play hooky and hit the beach!  There is no better reason than this sweet, windswept hair from the geniuses at Truth.  The Essena Hair is free in the subscriber, and you get the complete fatpack.  I love the soft curls and finger combed look.

On the way to the beach, I swung into Kendrasy Creations to pick up this adorable mesh Aztec top.  It is free in store, and includes 5 mesh sizes.  The texturing is top notch,  and the mesh moves perfectly with your body.

Also on Moira is the subscriber gift from Amala.  They are giving out a beautiful 4 necklace set just for joining the subscriber list.  And the best part about subscribers? It doesn’t take up a group slot, and you get to keep up with great creators!

new713-2

What is a day at the beach without a great campsite to plop down at, have a few drinks and as many nachos that will fit in your tummy?  I found this awesome wearable beach set from The Black Forest on MarketPlace for only 10L.  No need to rez, just attach, and you can plop down anywhere and have yourself a siesta.   Nothing makes the work week fly by like so many margaritas!  It is available in a few different styles, so make sure to shop the store.

Here is to a wonderful week!

Love,

Moi

Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit :)

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack :)

strawberry lemonade3

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

strawberry lemonade2

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

strawberry lemonade4

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around :) I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

PicMonkey Collage

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.

Hi everyone! FabFree’s Tuesday Feature Blog is taking some time to smell the roses…a quiet moment in the garden before heading out to see what adventures SL has in store today.

I was inspired by the FREE group gift from Lapointe & BastChild Design. Their “Classic Womens Tank Top” comes with a texture-changing hud with 9 fun logos. There is also a cap-sleeve version and a great tee for guys too! The group is FREE to join and while you’re there, pick up the fabulous “Je Suis Charlie” FREE necklace just down the stairs. (Previously shown here).
