A Night on the Town

Belle Epoque Anniversary hunt 3_001

It’s time for a fancy night off. Time to out on something dressy and head out into the night. My mystery date has sent a car to pick me up. Looks classy to me. I’m ready.

Belle Epoque Hunt

The Belle Epoque 7th Anniversary Hunt runs until the 30th of November; you still have time to hunt. The best part of this hunt is that everything is free, There are cupcakes scattered around the store. Find one and you’ve got a new gift! Read more about the hunt in Aline’s post. I picked up most of the hunt gifts but today I’m showing you the Angie dress. This lovely frock shows some skin but you’re still covered. It comes in this lovely shade of purple. A great outfit for a night out. Angie is sized for Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya, Juicy & Perky.

While hunting I also picked these cute earrings by Arkivet – the Strawberry Snail earrings. Aren’t they adorable? I’ll have to wear them to the next snail race! You can also see the Hiral eyeshadow and Daffodil lashes I’m wearing.  I do feel festive.

You folks have fun while I figure out how to get back to regular lashes! HA!

Telsiope Has Your Number

Telsiope pose RP SF0051A 10-28-2022 3_001

Feeling up to spookiness yet? You should because Halloween is knocking at the door. I’m not going to show you a costume today (yet). Instead I’m bringing you news from Telsiope Couture. As I have said in previous posts about this store is that I LOVE it. So let’s get talking about what you can find there.

Sexy Mama

I am feeling so sexy in this body-hugging provocative dress that fits like a sheer glove. It just makes you feel like you’re sending clouds of pheromones out into the world. Ooh-la-la! Yes, it’s sheer but have no fear, strategically placed solid swathes cover your bits. Included in the package is a texture change HUD with 20 options to choose from making the dress versatile. It’s like getting a fat pack without all the extra pieces.

Sizes included are Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. When you tp into the shop go up the stairs to the third floor. Alessia is currently the gift in the Midnight Madness board – give it a slap. There is also a Scratch & Win board and a host of gifts for other groups like Fabfree. The prices are very reasonable so get shopping.

Telsiope AMber_001

My second look from Telsiope Couture is the Amber Halloween Dress & Boots. It’s a dress that is not strictly for Halloween so you can wear it anytime. The included texture change HUD gives you three options in four colors. Your color choices are purple/lavender, black, red, and green. The texture choices are plain colors, small symbols (this is what I’m wearing) and last, one with large pentacles. You can really do a lot with the HUD. Amber is also sized for Belleza, Maitreya, & SLink. The boots are included in this black color. I got this for $50L. I always feel like I’m getting a nice bargain from Telsiope Couture.

Hair Today & Maybe More Tomorrow?

I have tons of hair but I cant resist buying new styles when they are on sale. I was beyond excited when I saw that No_Match had an offer out for the Happy Weekend Sale. I zoomed to the store and grabbed the No_Confusion red pack for only $60L. It’s really cute and you can change the color of the bow headband. There are many great hair designers around the grid but No_Match has remained my favorite for years.

One last note – I could not remember or find the pose used in picture #1. If anyone would like to apply to be my inventory organizer please send your resume to my Zanzibar.

It’s Only a Couple of Scratches

Java Halloween dress free 3_001

It was one of those Escape Rooms where you get locked in with people you don’t know and have to work together to escape. Seems that none of us who were booked for last night got the memo about leaving knives at home. As the evening turned to night it got  very dark. And oops, no one told us to bring flashlights.

In all that inky blackness things got a wee bit out of hand. Although I may be torn up a bit I’m fine. From the looks of it our team won! We all celebrated with a round of Bloody Marys!

A Spooky Take on a Classic

I like graphic clothing with witty sayings or artwork It’s a way of expressing yourself. A longtime SL fashion designer, Simone Udimo, is the creator/owner of  Java Fashion Design. I’ve been a subscriber at her store for years. She regularly offers free gifts for everyone and always has low prices. My dress today is one of several totally free gifts at the store. Upon entering look for 2 pumpkins in the lobby. They’re really easy to spot.

I’m wearing the Prissy Perks Midi dress that has been set out as a Halloween gift at Java Fashion Design. I think it’s hysterical with all of the wounds and the saying, “I’m fine”. As you can see it’s trimmed with a drippy, bloody border. It’s sized for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Legacy, Maitreya, & SLink Hourglass.

My heels are a free gift from [QE] at Shop & Hop. The Akila heels are definitely keepers.  The styling is perfect and of course there is a color/texture change hud with a choice of 15 colors. The heels fit Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink. There are only a few days to visit Shop & Hop; it ends on November 1st.

Java Halloween dress free Closeup _001

As I mentioned in a previous post Booty’s Beauty has new makeup on the MM boards every day. The La Luna eyeshadow comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX. The awesome tattoo below my right eye was on sale at One 2K for $25L Tuesday. It looks like I have a stash of extra eyeballs inside my cheek! Unfortunately it has been set back to regular price. (Sorry about that readers).

Lastly I am wearing a set of Bento Square nails by Fatal Fashion you can pick up for free at Swank (the group is free to join). They fit SLink, Maitreya, Belleza Kupra, Legacy, & Tonic.

If you aren’t ready for Halloween it is time to get it together!! Now – run!

Give Thanks

Coming Soon

Happy Thanksgiving! I am also celebrating Thanksgiving from Canada today, and I got dressed up to go have dinner with the fam later. Cheers! I have some gifts and free prizes to show today too, so let’s dig in!

The Floodgates are Open at TRUTH!

I am happy to report that past group gifts are now available for free for VIP group members of the TRUTH Hair group. There are 28 fantastic mesh hairstyles available as past group gifts, which include full fatpacks. The extensive colour huds and options are fantastic in each style. Most of the packs include style HUDs as well. For many years, these past group gifts cost VIP group members of TRUTH Hair 500L per fatpack, so this is simply amazing that the gifts have opened up for all- especially new members who never got the past gifts. Note that these are the mesh hair gifts before TRUTH started designing alpha hair. Today I am wearing the “Athena” hairstyle, which is one of my favourite past group gifts from this amazing hair creator.

TRUTH will continue to come out with group gifts every few months or so, but any future gifts are only available for the limited time they are available (usually at least 2-3 months), and future gifts will not be available as past group gifts. TRUTH is the absolute must-have group in my opinion because the group gifts are fantastic! It’s just an added bonus that all the past gifts are free for group members now! The TRUTH group currently costs 350L to join, and it is well worth the join fee.

Back To the Board

My BOM lipstick is from another fatpack I won from the free Midnight Madness board at Booty’s Beauty. You need to join their free group to slap the board each day. This lipstick set comes in a full pack of colours in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads.

Have a great day, FabFree!

Nostalgia

Coming Soon

This look brings me back to my pre-teen “Emo” days. Yep, this was the fashion style I rocked back in middle school… red converse shoes with black clothes and hair swept past half my face and eyes. Ah, nostalgia. I will admit that I’m happy those years are over, but it’s still fun to dress up Caroline in different styles all the time!

More MMB Goodies @ Moon

I have more great Midnight Madness Board prizes from Moon to show off today. As you already know by now, the VIP group is required to play their boards and the group costs 350L to join.

  • The “Felt Emo” hairstyle is one of the new hair prizes on the board. It includes a full fatpack with different colour huds and options – ombres, naturals and duo packs, as well as a style hud.
  • The eyeliner I am wearing is decorated with little flames at the top of each eyelid. These eyeliners come in black with colour accents on the flame design. These eyeshadows come in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads only.

Here are some past posts from Allison and myself that show more great prizes from Moon‘s Midnight Madness board:

Luckies @ [QE] Designs

I always love to play the lucky chairs at [QE] Designs. I won this fantastic skirt on the chairs. This skirt comes in a corduroy texture in several colours you can change via a HUD. No group join is required to play the lucky chairs at [QE] Designs, so these are free to play.

Sizes Included

  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

See you soon, FabFree!

Time to Shop FLF!

FLF 9-23-2022Wasabi Aleutia Ingenue_001

After a week of forced dominant hand thumb rest I’m back! I had no idea I could be so bored. I could have watched hour after hour of television & streaming shows. Or I could have indulged in my long time favorite hobby – reading. But no I can’t spend a lot of time on those pursuits because I am a resident of Second Life. I had to come back to make sure my flowers were watered and most importantly I knew I’d missed some great gifts and sales.

Fifty Linden Friday

I spent the better part of yesterday gathering tons of gifts then woke up this morning with Fifty Linden Fridays on my mind. I found three items I liked and put this look together.

  • My hair is the FLF offering at Wasabi. The Raya Beret Ed. hair – Absolute Pack. There are 4 sizes of the hair, unrigged bangs, and 3 texture change huds. There are several packs to choose from. What a way to start the weekend!
  • The frilly and girly looking Peggy dress is available at Aleutia. The FLF colors on sale are pink or green. The package comes as a hud that allows you to choose from one or all of these sizes: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Legacy/Perky, Kahlene Erika, Ebody/Reborn. I love these newer huds!
  • Ingenue has these great ankle boots out for FLF. The Queen of the Galaxy boots (As I have previously proclaimed myself a queen several times I HAD to grab these). The boots fit Maitreya, Legacy, and SLink. Four colors are included on the hud.

Here’s a closer look at the Raya hair and makeup:
FLF 9-23-2022 Close up Wasabi Aleutia Ingenue_002

My lipstick is Booty’s Beauty Gelous lips 9 BOM. This was yesterday’s MM prize for the Booty’s Chairleaders group. The join fee for this premium group is $100L and well worth it because you’ll have access to exclusive gifts. LC, & MM. There is also a free to join group that will still give you access to some gifts, and a different LC, and MM.

xoxoxo,

Light Up

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have a quick post showing off some gorgeous eyes and eyeshadow. These items will really make your look light up and “pop”. They are worth grabbing, especially because they are both free.

Joe

First, my eyes are a freebie from Hitori on the Marketplace. These are called the “Joe” eyes. They work with Lelutka EvoX heads only. These eyes include BOM and an HD Applier for Lelutka EvoX heads. The pack includes several eye colours. Each one is stunning!

All About That Booty’s

My eyeshadow comes from a Midnight Madness Board prize at Booty’s Beauty. You need their free group to play, and 50 slaps are needed every day to lock the board and win different makeup prizes.  The Midnight Madness board and lucky chairs are upstairs. You can leave the group each day after your slap is registered, and you will be sent the prizes (if you are low on group spaces).  The eyeshadow I am showing comes in BOM Layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads, and many colour options are included. I am not certain if this particular item will appear on the board again, but they have new items every day! I hope it pops up again for you too because these shadows are stunning! 😉 All the free prizes at Booty’s Beauty on the boards and lucky chairs are fantastic! Note that only the board and lucky chairs on the left side of the wall are for the free group.

Enjoy, FabFree!

In Search of Fall

Artic Storm MM Sweater & Pants 2 nuve Ad WL 9-7-2022_001

I went out in search of fall. You’re probably thinking about why I would be searching for it. You see, in my RL world it’s still hotter than Hades. But there is a hint of fall here – the leaves are falling off my tree! Autumn is bursting out all over SL so my search was fairly easy. I did take time to hit a few MM boards along the way.

Yummy Threads

Are you all aware that the MM boards at Artic Storm are open to everyone? I was able to scoop up this great fall outfit by slapping the two boards there. Note: one board is one the first floor & the other is upstairs. The Martye Cardigan Gold and Martye Jeans Black also has a hud for the belt. The two items make up this lovely outfit. You’ll be ready for a hayride or clam bake or whatevah!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique

More to come later. I’m off to go leaf peeping.
