Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). ūüôā

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green¬†– it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the¬†skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards¬†since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them Рor a pair in teal Рfor 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Pack,¬†a brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The¬†Julia¬†applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! ūüėÄ

Spelling 101

Snapshot_007School Is In Session

Hey there FabFree!¬† In my last post I showed you a group gift by MonaLISA [HERE], and as I was digging through the rest of the items I picked up at the same time, I came across this great business suit¬†that had¬†a real teachery kind of feel to me.¬†¬†It reminded me that “someone” was picking on my Canadian spelling last week in blog comments posted [HERE] and I had threatened to school him on the subject.

I honestly have no idea why we have different spellings for the same words between Canada and the USA.¬†It’s probably one of those things we’ll never figure out with history going back and forth…¬†Just saying…¬† I wasn’t wrong!

Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit

The MonaLISA Business Mini Skirt & Suit Jacket both come in S-XL mesh sizes with alpha layers.  As I mentioned in my previous post regarding MonaLISA, the group is 100L to join.

Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On

On my avatar, I am also wearing the latest group gift shoe offer by Phedora!  The Marian Heels have been added in a full fatpack of colours to the ever growing group gift section at their shop.  With a one time 300L join fee, you can pick up several fantastic pairs of shoes that are compatible with many types of feet.

In A Hurry

As Edi mentioned in her post earlier today [HERE], it’s Fifty Linden Friday…¬†and if you are really quick, you can still¬†stop by Maxi Gossamer and pick up their Fifty Linden Friday¬†offer¬†for today.¬† It’s a little tough to see in my post, but you can buy their Love Catcher¬†Heart Necklace and Earring set for 50L, just today!

Class dismissed!

Smiles on a Cloudy Day

Little by Little

Hello there, Fabulouses! ¬†It has been a number¬†of cold, gray, rainy days in a row where I am in RL, so I guess that influenced my selection of outfit and location for today’s blog post. ¬†With a couple of lamps to guide our way, Ripley and I set out to explore the snowy It All Starts With a Smile sim. Rip never has to worry about getting the chills with his luxurious fur coat, and lucky for me, with my cozy knitted outfit and scarf from VIPs Creations, I stayed toasty warm all day as well!

Nothing Goes Together Like Winter and a Sweater

Unless of course it’s a knitted skirt, fleecy¬†scarf, and a sweater! ¬†My entire outfit today from my shawl¬†to my shoes is a free group gift for members of the VIPs Creations group, which by the way, is free to join! ¬†I just love it when I get a complete outfit all in one swoop! ¬†The soft, woolen, long-sleeved sweater wrapped my arms in comfort, while its cropped waistline offered a sexy peek at my midsection. ¬†Just so we could keep snuggly warm, the generous designer tucked a black scarf in the package to drape around our necks. ¬†It resizes with just a touch, so you can adjust it as needed for your avatar. ¬†A thick, knitted gray skirt which fell to just above my knees, perfectly coordinated with the hue of my top, and rounded out my outfit. ¬†Finally, before setting out with Ripley, I slipped on the Cecilia shoes, which are also included as part of the gift. ¬† These leather high heels are packed with details such as three buckles and delicate knotted laces. ¬†They were the perfect footwear to shield my toes from old Jack Frost. ¬†If you would love to capture this sweet, stylish complete outfit for yourself, head on over to VIPs Creations, join the group if you’re not a member already, then tap the gift board. ¬†There’s also a men’s group gift up for grabs, but since Ripley already sports a fluffy winter coat, he opted out (not to mention the fact that he’s a canine!). ¬†I can’t say I blame him….he’s pretty cute just the way he is!

What’s Included:

  • Cecilia Shoes for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya
  • Skirt in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Top in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Black Scarf

Sunny Days Ahead…. (I Hope!)

I think Ripley and I have had enough rain and gray skies to fill us up for quite some time. ¬†Until my next post, here’s wishing you sunshine and happy shopping!

Socking It To Me

Snapshot_003I Don’t Understand

There is one thing about men that I will never understand… Actually there are several things, but one strikes me particularly hard today – Why oh why, do the socks go on the floor beside the laundry hamper?¬†¬†I even moved the hamper where he was tossing them last week, thinking¬†to myself “Ok…¬† if I can’t beat him, I need to join him“, but no…¬† The socks are still beside…¬† the…¬†¬†laundry … hamper.

I am¬†considering that¬†perhaps there is some kind of negative¬†magnetic force that keeps them from going inside the basket.¬† What else could it possibly be?¬† I¬†am reading up on the subject…¬† “How¬†To Understand Him”.¬† Wish me luck.

At Least One Thing Was Clear

One thing that was really clear to me today was that I was really glad I picked up the Zenovia Outfit as a free group gift at MonaLISA.  I joined this group for 100L some time in December to take advantage of a lucky board prize [blogged here] that is still available, and stopped in today to check out what was available in the way of group offers.  There are tons of group gifts, a midnight mania board, and a few group lucky boards too.

The Zenovia Outfit all goes on in one click and includes the skirt, top, and cardigan.  It comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the alphas in the case that you need them.

Like My Hair?

I think I jumped up and down when I saw that Truth was participating in this new round of The Epiphany with three gorgeous long hairstyles at just 50L per play!¬† I am wearing Wind today, and can’t wait to get my hands on the other two as well!¬† All of the braids and waves are done perfectly.

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!¬† She …¬† Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting¬†fun.¬† My shooting aim of course is horrible…¬† The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun… ¬†If I am aiming at them,¬†they are pretty safe.¬† It’s the¬†ambulance windshield right next to him¬†that needs to worry…¬† or the tree WAY over to the left.¬† It’s a good thing¬†Carson just follows around¬†behind me shooting them all dead.¬†¬†Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…¬† but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!¬† The new 22 piece¬†prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:¬† Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to¬†mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL¬† The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

She’s Like the Wind

(red)sand _5000 members gif male coat and scarf

Just a Fool to Believe…

I’ve had ’80’s movie soundtracks playing in my head all weekend…. (Thanks, Pru and Love ¬† >.< ) And Dirty Dancing is one of my “compromise chick flick movies”. ¬†I don’t mind cuddling up, watching Jennifer Grey (big time ’80’s crush) and singing along to the music. You can’t help but like this movie because we all know you don’t put Baby in the corner.

…I have Anything She Needs

Today’s gift is from¬†(red)sand. For reaching 5000 members, they are celebrating by giving the members this FREE¬†Coat and Scarf set. The mesh coat comes in the standard sizes XS-XL ¬†and the scarf can be adjusted to get that perfect fit. the¬†(red)sand¬†group is FREE to join. Find the gift in the crate on the bottom shelf under the red slink sign. There’s also a special gift for the women!

Say Anything

Say Anything

¬†In your eyes, I am complete…

After seeing Pru getting Footloose and Love Dirty Dancing,¬†I thought I’d play along with my take on¬†Lloyd Dobler from one of the best movies of¬†the 1980’s, Say Anything. This well known iconic pose of Lloyd holding his boombox (yeah, had one back in the day) above his head, belting out Peter Gabriel’s¬†¬†In Your Eyes is one of movie’s most recognizable¬†scenes. Lloyd¬†found David’s Black Coat as the FREE¬†prize on the Midnight Mania Board at¬†Tiar. ¬†He also picked up the FREE Group Gift Men’s Mesh Steel Blue Austin Tee by Cold Ash at their display at the Men Only District.¬†

When I want to run away, I drive off in my car…

I followed Pru and also played the gacha at¬†[Since1975] and was lucky enough to get the rare BoomBox/C on my first try. (/me cracks his knuckles) My car, a Ferrari, (much better than Lloyd’s car in the movie) is a FREE gift at¬†Sinsity¬†Race Track. Take a spin around the track. It only takes 10 minutes.

‚ôę But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are…¬†‚ôę

Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice РSimple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Gonna Soak Up the Sun 

ADRIATIC line Blue Hoodie & Jean Shorts

Gonna tell everyone to lighten up…

I’m feeling the need to head down to the beach, find a sunny spot to sit and dig my toes in the sand. And today’s outfit is perfect for such an excursion. I was lucky enough to win the Men’s Jean Shorts with Dark Blue Belt from the Midnight Mania Board at Adriatic¬†line.

The water’s still free…

And so is another group gift I found at Adriatic¬†line. By joining the Third Life group (type or paste in local chat: ¬†secondlife:///app/group/22874c32-502f-f4d9-fbdc-97205dad4b13/about¬† ¬†and join the group for just $10L , the Dark Blue Men’s Hoodie can be yours by clicking the vendor.

Every time I turn around you’re looking up,¬†I’m looking down…

My pose today comes from PosESion. The Hunter pose pack is just $60L as were many other pose packs located on the second floor for both men and women. I’m just going to sit here a and remember that I’ve got no one to blame for every time I feel lame…

You Get My Motor Running

AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS - Biker Outfit

Looking for Adventure…

I’m got a bad case of cabin fever and need to get out the house. Only in Second Life can you ride a hog comfortably with snow on the ground. And I’m going to look the part in the latest group gift from Amazing Creations. Biker Outfit 21 is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. The outfit comes with jeans, several pairs of shoes, and a vest with a texture HUD to change your gang colors on the fly. (I originally thought the vest was untextured, DOH!) And now I’m headed down the highway for a ride… Anyone care to hop on back and join me?
