A Pleasant Surprise by Scandalize

Blog coming soon to FabFreeI hope I don’t sound like a broken record, but…

Hey there Fabulouses!  I know I have shown you several gifts from Scandalize over the last year, and so you probably are well aware that there is a giant wall full of sweet treats for VIPs, but every time I visit, it gets bigger with new additions.  In a notice to their inworld group recently, they mentioned that they have placed their lucky board prizes in with the group gifts, so you can just pick them up now if you didn’t win them in the boards!  With a 100L group join, you’ll overstuff your inventory with sexy little things!

Another Free Gift?  WOW!

The other day I picked up a few new to me Scandalize group gifts, and this Dian set was one of them.  Dian is a two piece matching set that goes on all in one click and includes a texture change HUD so you have the option to make it whatever colour you like…  or even mix and match top/skirt/button colours.

Sizes Included:

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

Under the Cedars

Secret Garden
Happy Pre-Friday, Fabulouses!  Oooooh have I found a gorgeous, sexy gown for you today!  When Ripley and I were wandering the grid, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest free gift from monaLISA.  Quick as a wink, we popped on over to the shop, and scooped up this beauty.  If you’re not a group member already, for just a 70L join fee, you can add the spellbinding Maite gown to your inventory, too.

Gold Trimmed Ebony

With a slit that offers a glimpse of shapely legs, and a daring cut in the bodice, this sleeveless dress sets off your figure beautifully.  Sleek ebony fabric hugs your curves, and drapes to a slightly flared, floor-length hemline.  Softly gleaming gold edging surrounds the border of the skirt, and adds a glamorous touch.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It’s so Close, I Can Almost Taste It

We’re almost to the weekend….yay!  Here’s hoping the rest of your work week passes smoothly.  I know I’ll have a busy Saturday in RL.  Thanksgiving managed to sneak up on me this year.  Sheesh!  Where did November go?  Over the weekend, I plan to make sure I have all the ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving Holiday dinner.  (I know our Canadian friends already celebrated – we’re a little behind them here in the USA).  The pupster put in a special request for a double batch of Ripley Snacks.  My favorite, however, has to be pumpkin pie.  What’s yours?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fab Freaky

Well hello again Fab Free!

Do you ever get one of those days where you just need to sit in your oversized bird cage amongst the white-leaved trees?  Me too.  It happens all the time.  (Not actually, but you know…)

To go with my mystical surroundings, I found a cute free look, and some suitably magical makeup!

Skelly Corsetry

The Little Bat is a fun little shop filled with loads of yummy fab free finds.  This skeleton-adorned corset is a free group gift, and the group is free to join.  There are a slew of nice gifts at the store, as well as some midnight mania boards, and some lucky letters that don’t require a group join.  This corset comes in XXS – L sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Mystical Makeup

Quick as you can, Zombie Suicide‘s group is currently free to join for a week!  Hurry up and join as the normal cost is 200L.  There are plenty of group gifts to be had, including this cool moon and stars applier makeup.  It comes in several fantasmagorical colours! This makeup works with mesh heads, and appliers included are Catwa, LeLutka and Omega.

Pout for me!

I do love a good black lipstick, and when you find one this shiny, and priced at 1L, you just can’t go wrong.  Hop on down to Pout! and check out the wall of gifts all priced at just 1L, no group join required.  These different makeup appliers work for mesh heads, so check that the one you pick up works with your head.  This particular lipstick works with Catwa and LeLutka.

I REBEL

I REBEL

I REBEL

Hello There Fab Free’rs! It’s true, in my heart of hearts I am really super nerdy. I doubt that comes as much of a surprise! All the same when I saw the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from Eclectic Stars, you better believe I snagged it quick. This Star Wars themed v-neck tee has the Rebel symbol and the phrase “I Rebel” in yellow. I really like this casual top on so many levels, not just for the obvious Star Wars reference, though that’s a big plus in my book. This cute top from Eclectic Stars is FREE to all Fab Free group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and has an alpha layer for non mesh avatars. Don’t forget to wear you Fab Free group tag when you head over to Eclectic Stars to pick up your FREE gift.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), FitMesh (XS – L) *Apha Layer Also Included

Nerd Glasses

Alright, I know it’s a huge cliche to suggest that to be nerdy you should wear glasses or that wearing glasses is nerdy but come on, these are cute! They also are technically a mens gift from BlankLine. I happened across these FREE basic black glasses while surfing through Flickr. They come with resize scripts for easy fitting. To get your pair head over to BlankLine (if you land in the “Mens Department” you’re in the right spot) and there’s a BlankLine group joiner right at the landing spot. The BlankLine group is FREE to join. Just above the BlankLine group joiner is the gift vendor for these adorably basic glasses.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Queen of Autumn

Queen of Autum_001

I have a special free roleplay gown for you. Though if you skip the cloak and high neck collar on this gown, the red gown and mesh red gloves, make this gown fitting for any formal occasion as well.

Stop by…

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic sizes XXS – M (the Medium fit my Maitreya body well)
  • Slink fitted

Cotton Candy After Midnight

Wrapped in a Cozy Cardigan

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  On chilly fall days such as this, I love, love, love to cloak myself in a toasty warm cardigan.  Ripley and I recently teleported over to @rOrO to take a look around, and I’m so glad we did!  I picked up my new, super-long sweater as a free Midnight Mania prize there.  All I had to do was tap the board on the wall, cross my fingers, and hope that the target of 10 slaps would be reached by midnight.  Sure enough, when the clock struck 12, my prize was delivered!

Raspberry and Teal

Featuring an ombre color scheme composed of a jewel-like raspberry hue fading to a dusky teal, this sweater-jacket kept both my arms and legs shielded from the brisk air.  The playful diamond-shaped pattern on the outer shell coordinated beautifully with the solid-colored shirt underneath.  This sexy little crop top offered a glimpse of my tummy, but I was comforted by the fact that should the wintery air become too uncomfortable, all I had to do was pull together the sides of my cardigan to warm up.  I really liked the added detail of the dark necklace, which is included as part of the top.   To pick up this Cotton Candy Argyle Cardigan and Shirt for yourself, simply journey to @rOrO and give the board a tap.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

While you’re at the store,  here’s hoping that your letter will come up on the lucky boards.  There are also a variety of dollarbies on the wall offered for sale, and a collection of group gifts as well, including one for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Couldn’t Say Hell No!

I Couldn't Say Hell No!

Oh.  Em.  Gee.  Hello Fab Free!

I am so excited to be here!  As Love said in her introduction post HERE, I have been a reader of this amazing blog for 3 years.  I, just like many of you I’m sure, check the blog daily for those fabulous deals and gorgeous finds.  And now, here I am!  I’m just tickled pink!

I gotta say, these bloggers make it look easy, but scouring the grid for a fab look sure is a heck of a task.  I want to thank all the Fab Free bloggers for tirelessly seeking out awesome looks for us fashionistas (and fashionistos… is that a word?) to keep us looking gorgeous.  I will do my best to keep up with these well-heeled bloggers!

Hell Yes!

Even though my cute shirt says Hell No, I couldn’t say no to Love when she asked me to join the Fab Free Blog Team!

I jumped straight into the task and found this adorable belly-baring top for a Group Join of 50L at Abrasive .  They have several other gifts out, so the price is well worth it!  This tee comes in sizes from XXS to L and has an alpha layer included.

A Bit of Shine

To complement my new top, I added this free copper skater skirt from Sweet Thing.  The group is free to join .  They also have a few other cute gifts out, which are all quite lovely!

Sizes:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
Slink Hourglass

More to Come…

Dear Fab Free’rs, this has been an absolute blast .  I am so stoked to be a part of this fashion family, and I can’t wait to find you more cool stuff all over the grid!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

Sidetracked by Naniamo Bars

LegendaireFreebieHave You Had A Nanaimo Bar?

Seeing some Nanaimo Bars in the cafe at The Mill sim today while taking some photos made me wonder, just how many people from different countries know about Canada’s favourite confection…  This no-bake layered dessert bar named after the British Columbia city Nanaimo, is quite possibly the most deliciously sinful treat on the planet.  I don’t live any where near Nanaimo, but around the holidays these bars are in every bakery on every block, in every province (and apparently at The Mill too).  Here’s a link to a recipe if you’d like to whip up a batch wherever you are – NANAIMO BAR RECIPE.

So…  What I actually Came To Tell You About…

Legendaire put out a free gift for everyone!  There is no need to even join the group (unless you want to!) – The Ella Gift is priced at 0L at the main entrance on a decorative table.  The Ella Gift is the lovely belted coat you see me wearing today.  This gift comes with a texture change hud that allows for four different prints, and also includes a pair of heels for slink high feet!

What You’ll Find In Your Folder:

  • XXS-L Mesh Ella Coat Dress + Alpha Layer
  • Texture Change HUD – 4 prints
  • Ella Heels (Slink High Feet)

Relaxing in the Desert Light

Resting in the Desert Light

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m fighting off a fever in RL after getting my flu shot today, (ouch!) but wanted to pop in quickly to share another free Fabulous Find that Ripley and I discovered at 68 Main.  In my last post {HERE}, I featured a gorgeous, date night dress and heels from the event that I scooped up for free.  Tonight, I’m sporting a more informal look that was also completely free.

She’s Cute in Camo

The Regan outfit, a free gift from Finale Couture, features a strappy khaki tank top and trousers covered in a camouflage print.  It was just right for a stroll in the desert.  I really like the slightly scalloped edge on the shirt, which adds visual interest.  The pants sat low on my hips and hugged my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.   There is also a resizable belt included in the package that I didn’t see until after I snapped my photo.  Although the pants are only designed to fit mesh avatars, the shirt includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies.  If you are looking for a casual outfit ideal for a day of relaxation, Regan fits the bill!  To pick it up for yourself, you need to be a member of the 68 Main ~ The Event ~ group, but since it has no join fee, it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.   After activating your tag, teleport over to the event and locate the Finale Couture display.  Click the gift box and pay 0L.  Easy as pie!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

Jeans 

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Lara
  • Venus

Top

  • XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit Mesh for Maitreya
  • Fit Mesh for Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!
