Look Sharp For Free

Java
Hello Fabulouses!  Sometimes in Second Life, you require something a little more on the professional side for attire, and it’s not always easy to find for free.  Perhaps you have an inworld job as a customer service representative for a shop, or another type of job where you need to put your capable and confident foot forward.  Either way, this “Comfort Here Dress” by JAVA that is set out as a freebie fits the bill.

Make The Right Impression

The Comfort Here Dress comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those that need it.  There are no mesh specific body fits for this gift, however I was able to get this to fit like a glove with my Maitreya Lara mesh body using it’s alpha HUD.  It also comes with some free jewelry, however I prefer less to more when it comes to jewelry and accessories, and just wore the dress.  You can find this free gift near the subscribomatic by the main entrance, just priced at 0L – no need to join a group to take advantage of the offer.

PEACE

PrismGarageFair

Hey there FabFree Readers!  Over the last few days I have been showing you some really nice gifts that are available at The Garage Fair and I have another one to share news with you about today.

Before I get into the details of my free outfit…

I wanted to mention that it has come to my attention that some of the barrels do not contain gift items, they contain for sale items.  Please take care when you are willy nilly clicking away at the barrels that you don’t purchase something you don’t intend to.  Take your time, look around and check the prices!  There are many gifts to be found, but many great deals too.

Sky Blue Lara

The playful 2 piece set called Lara that I am wearing today is a free gift that you can pick up at The Prism Garage Fair Display by buying the contents of the barrel for 0L.  What you’ll receive is the teeny frilled tied top and the printed denim skirt.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alphas
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Are You A Poser?

If so, you should grab this fun Happy Girl Pose that I picked up for just 1L in the B&G Marketplace store.

PEACE!

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!

Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things

You better shape up…

It’s that time of the year that I decide that it’s time to get outside and start exercising. The job I have is very sedentary and it’s easy to not get enough exercise. I decided that I would take time every day and walk or run to get back into shape.  It’s a great concept, I hope I can continue to follow through.

TRAINing…

My workout look consists of some freebies I found at NewClover. Both the Red Zip-Up Jersey and the Black Line Training Pants were both hanging on the rack for FREE. There are freebies all over the store, just be careful when buying items as not all items in the store are set to 0L. My footwear choice are my go to Vasiforms from Vale Koer. I pull these out quite often as they are so versatile with the color change HUD. It’s like designing your very own high-tops every time you put them on. The Vasiforms are FREE to Vale Koer members and the group is FREE to join.

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

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.

Call Me Jim

Call Me Jim

Sunday Stroll…

There’s no better way to spend the first weekend in May than taking a walk among the flowers just coming into bloom. And if you’re looking for flowers, look no further than the Flowerage Hunt 2. Just look for the blue flowers (pink flowers for the ladies or purple for unisex gifts) and get some nice dollarbie gifts. At Sparrow by Design I found the Call Me Jim Sweater and Enfield Cargo Pants. Both the pants and sweater come on standard XS-XL sizes and are both nicely textured. This is most definitely a keeper for the wardrobe. The Flowerage Hunt 2 runs through the end of May.

In this outfit I don’t mind if you call me Jim… Just don’t call me Bob….

I’d Love To, But My Dog Said No

I'd Love To, But My Dog Said No

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today, I escaped got out of work early, and since it was a gorgeous spring day, decided to take a stroll on the beautiful grounds of the Calas Galadhon sim with my pal, Ripley.  While he happily scampered about, I enjoyed the glimmering sunshine, which danced off the surface of the pond, while a gentle breeze stirred the boughs of the trees overhead.  Suddenly, my peace was disturbed by a flash of fur, and the scampering paws of a creature as it scrambled up my leg and perched, curled around my neck.  As I stood in shock, the ferret stared down at my canine companion, and stuck out his tongue at him.  Of course, this set Ripley off into a barking frenzy!  So much for my harmonious afternoon…

It took some sweet talk, and the promise of his ever-coveted Ripley snacks to persuade him to give the climbing pole cat a break from “chase the ferret.”  As the pupster wandered off in search of another playmate, my new friend and I gazed at each other and relaxed.  He’s really quite sweet, with deep, brown eyes surrounded by a mask of fur.  Surely there is room enough in our home for just one more pet…

As Lovely as a Goddess

My cream colored goddess top and black leather leggings are the latest free group gift for members of the Teleport Hub group from Prey.  Airy and light, with a realistic texture and open back, this sleeveless top is perfect for warm weather.  The curve-hugging leather leggings fit perfectly under the hem of my shirt, and provided a striking contrast to the loose fitting blouse.  Together, these two pieces create a timeless, classic appeal that is simple, yet elegant.

What’s Included:

  • Goddess top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Black leather leggings in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layers for the top and leggings

To add this charming outfit to your inventory, simply swap to the Teleport Hub group tag, then journey over to Prey.  On the wall near the landing point, you will find the group gift sign.  The Teleport Hub normally has a 10L join fee, but it’s currently set at oL (at the time of publication).  I’m not sure how long this will last, but I’d highly recommend joining if you can, because there are a boatload of free group gifts for members scattered across the grid.

About Adding to Our Family…

I tried to convince Ripley that we have plenty of room for a fur-sibling for him, but he resisted.  I cajoled and pleaded, promised double scoop ice cream cones with Ripley snack crumbles, and I almost had him convinced, when I heard a deep voice say, “Excuse me, Miss, but I believe you have my Jasper.  You see, he escaped from his harness, and I’ve been searching for him all afternoon….”  The little ferret wriggled with joy, and happily reunited with his owner as Ripley heaved a sigh of relief.  Jasper’s owner and I chatted for a little while, then my pal and I headed toward home, making a pit stop for ice cream on our way.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Fresh Prince of SL

The Prince of SL...

♫  At the Wash sim where I was created and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school  ♫

I’m chilling at the b-ball court, out by the school in my new threads and there was no poppin’ tags. Everything I’m wearing was FR -EEE! I hitched a ride to R2A Creations and picked up this month’s group gift, the Grind Outfit. With the athletic pants and tank, you also get a pair of blue sneaks and a black snapback hat. So yo, get yourself on down to R2A and join the group, it’s FREE to do so and then join me for some hoops. PEACE!

♫  I rezzed at the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the Linden ‘Yo holmes smell ya later’
I looked at my kingdom
In the sim that I dwell
To sit on my throne as the Prince of SL  ♫
