 Not Just for the Birds

Not Just for the Birds

 

The Pen is Mightier than the Beak….

With my coffee in one hand and my notepad in the other, I decided to head out to the yard to make notes for my next post. My goal is write a post about the other group gift at Angel DELUXE that I didn’t mention in my surfing post [HERE]. As I’m scribbling notes … comes in classic avatar sizes XS-XL… comfy look and feel…. FREE to members but the group has a 10L joining fee… blah blah…. an owl swoops down and takes my pen from my hand and perches on the garden wall… FINE! You write my next post….

Please allow me to introduce myself….

I’m Owlson.  Carson has so graciously allowed me to finish his post today. (I personally think he has writer’s block) I’ve just flown in from the Tres Chic Event event that I read about from Serena [HERE] and [HERE] and Love [HERE]. While I was circling the event, I was asking HOOever was around if there were gifts that were not geared strictly for the hens. I was fortunate enough to find a flock that was looking for the same things I was.  We soared from booth to booth finding great  nest home and garden items. I’ll list them below to save you from me trying to imitate Caiben’s droll sense of humor….

  • CHEZ MOI – Teal Wooden Bench
  • [Merak] – Cup and Notebook
  • Serenity Style- Rusty Birdhouse
  • Fashiowl Poses – Happy Birthday Gift w/ Owl Pose

If you noticed, you can even get a lifelike version of me in a perched  pose position from Fashiowl. All you need to do to get these great gifts is join the Tres Chic group for FREE and wear the group tag while picking up gifts at the Tres Chic Event.
This blogging gig is easy. I wonder if they have an opening for an owl who looks better in glasses than Caiben does?

EDIT: The gift from Fashiowl is IN the owl which is an owl balloon… I still like the owl….

Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day, and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! 😄

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for fitmesh (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! 😀

A Night at the Theatre

At the Theatre

Magical…

I enjoy the theatre. Not just the shows but the overall experience. There is something magical that happens when the lights dim and the orchestra begins to play. You are whisked away into a story, and for a couple of hours, forget your own worries…

Showstopper…

The outfit today is a real showstopper. The Alexander Mesh Outfit is a beautiful suit that will most definitely turn heads. This is a FREE group gift from Lara Augusta Carnelian. This one-piece suit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and could be used not only for a night out for a show and dancing, but also for role-play. The Lara AC group is FREE to join. I am also wearing two group gifts from Gabriel. Both the Studded Gloves and the Shearling Shoes are FREE Gifts to group members.

A Rose by any other name….

It is so glad to see that The Rose Theatre is still in existence. This a lovely building with so many intricate details that it feels like a new experience every time I visit. It does feel new, it’s been five years since i last visited.  🙂

Get Wet

Get Wet

Surfin’ Safari…

I’ve really become a fan of going to surfing sims and riding the waves. It’s fun and, believe it or not, relaxing to hear the waves and ride over some of these mondo waves.  Today I’m boarding at San Blas Beach where the waves are high and the current is swift. I stopped by ::Mr.Poet:: and upstairs near the lucky boards was a rack of FREE gifts, no group needed. I picked up the Summer Tank Top that comes in three different prints. I’m also wearing the green Swimsuit I found at NEWCLOVER when they were having their new store celebration. but when I went back to check, it was no longer free. 😦  And what would a surfing post of mine be without a pose from Le Poppycock? (I said I played several rounds on the gacha) Today’s pose is called “Get Wet” from the Surf’s Up series. The pose comes with a texture changing surfboard in several colors. Each play of the gacha is just 50L. I’m going to paddle out to catch another wave.
If you haven’t tried surfing, you should give it a go!

Official Kick Off To Gardening Season

prismLW

Good morning Fabulouses!  Yesterday was a holiday here in Canada (YAY for a Monday free work-week!), and the official kick off to gardening season, so I spent the day flower shopping,  planting and spreading new mulch.  I did stop in online however to find some freebie news to share with all of you!

A Prism Replay

This casual two piece outfit called Naquita by Journey is available as a free group gift at Prism (no fee to join!!).  It includes the printed blouse and cuffed jeans as shown on my avatar in XXS – L mesh sizes as well as the alpha layers for hiding rogue body parts.  Now this outfit has been shown on FabFree before, way back in 2015 by Julianna – but I wanted to make mention of it again for anyone who missed the news, because it’s still available as a free group gift along with a wall full of gifts  – and is a keeper!

Been Strong Too Long

LW Poses put up a new free group gift for May at the landing point of the shop for Luane’s World group members (free to join).  This pose is called Been Strong Too Long and comes with the single pose, pose ball and mirrors.

The Buried Man

Buried Man

It’s the end of the world as we know it…

But why sweat the small stuff. I’ve got a shack to live in, a fire to keep me warm, and a large broken statue that creeps me out at night. Who could ask for more? I was lucky enough to win this outfit at the Lucky Board at Angel DELUXE (before the world went to hell in a hand basket). The Desert Outfit can be won if your lucky letter come up. You do need to be a Angel DELUXE group member to click the board, but the join fee is just 10L. I’m also wearing the Shearling Boots,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel and the TopGun Retro Glasses, also a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. I had a lot of fun exploring The Buried Man Sim. Check it out!

The Tide is High

The Tide is High

But I’m holding on…

…to my surfboard. The waves are gnarly today, the water is choppy and the surf is rough…. just the way I like it! I’m back at Kona Beach riding a few waves in a couple of new group gifts from Angel DELUXE. The Blue Tank Top lets everyone know I’m part of the Angel DELUXE surf team. The fitmesh tank comes in Slink & Signature sizes only and I had to do some body adjusting to get it to fit. Another group gift at Angel DELUXE is the Splattered Shorts with Belt. The shorts come in standard XS-XL sizes. Both these gifts are FREE to Angel DELUXE members , but there is a 10L fee to join the group. I’m still wearing the FREE Aviator Sunglasses group gift from Rebellion  that I previously showed [HERE].

Gnarlatious…

I am showing off another pose in the *Surf’s Up* gacha series by Le Poppycock. This pose is called Gnarlatious and can be won from the gacha for just 50L.

Beach Weekend

Beach                                                                                                                                                                          Photo by Love Trill

FINALLY…. the weekend….

It is been a long hard week for the both of us, either finishing jobs or beginning new ones. One thing we could most definitely agree on was that we needed a getaway to let the events of the week drain away and just relax. So, off to the beach we go. As I’m sitting here looking out over the ocean and enjoying the cool breeze in my face,  she hands me one of her magazines and tells me to answer the questions on a compatibility test…. I thought this was supposed to be a stress-free weekend…. /me sighs…

It’s A Wrap

You can find her wrapped Puerto Rico Bikini as a FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Faboo! It comes in several mesh body specific sizes as listed below.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is FREE to join, and once you do – you can pick up a whole list of group gifts [FOUND HERE].

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic
  • TMP

Shades, Stars and Thongs, Ohhhh My…

My *AHEM* banana hammock is also a gift at Faboo. The Kanji Thong is one of the many group gifts available to Faboo members.  The Faboo group is FREE to join, but the gifts are pay 1L, get 1L refunded. I’m also wearing tats (GASP) today. The Black Star Tattoo is a 5L gift from the Red Girl booth at the Spotlight Event. The Tattoo comes in both Omega and Slink appliers for both upper and lower tattoos. I also stopped by REBELLION  and after joining the group, was able to pick up the Aviator Sunglasses, one of many group gifts available to members. The Rebellion group is also FREE to join.

Getting Beachy…

Our pose today is the latest group gift from Come Soon PosesBeach Weekend is just what the doctor ordered to unwind and relax. The couple’s pose comes with a chair and a chaise lounger, an umbrella, a beer beverage cooler, and a cute little pup to keep you entertained.  Also included is a wearable magazine, if you’re into taking silly quizzes… And what is the price, you are probably wondering? Why, everything you see is FREE. It’s quite a nice setup for just being a FREE gift.

Now back to the quiz… Question 2 – Do you follow her every command?  ummmm, say what???
