Flying By the Seat of My Pants

Flying by the Seat of My Pants

Ready For Lift Off

I have to agree with Pru and Carson that something is just not right this week. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the moon, or what, but I’ve had a HECK of a week so far, and it’s not over yet!

To help get over my funky mood, Finnoula (my dog) and I headed over to the beautiful Winter Trace sim for a little fun in the snow. Turns out sledding is a lot harder than I thought, and I was so scared that I just closed my eyes and tried to hold on! Sadly, I wound up going so fast that I lost control and went flying through the air in a most ungraceful manner. Poor Finn couldn’t keep up (or kept her distance on purpose?) and didn’t care at all that I had completely humiliated myself with a face-plant at the bottom of the hill. She ran off to chase some deer, leaving me alone to pick myself up… along with my dignity! 😛

Coming in For a Landing

While I may not have landed on my feet, I was still glad to be wearing these awesome boots! Belle Epoque has set them out as a free gift at the current round of The Crossroads, and you can pick them up for 0L right across from the landing spot. They’re sized to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and the detailing is really gorgeous. There are several other gifts available at this round of The Crossroads, 2 of which were shown here by Carson. 🙂

Moon Amore has put out this “lovely shirt” as a holiday gift for group members. It comes with a texture-change HUD that includes 8 different colors and is sized to fit Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. The group is only 30L to join, and past group gifts are still available for you to scoop up.

Last by not least, my choker is the latest group gift from CHAIN. Choose from silver or gold metal options with the included HUD. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to fit.

3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

PRISM for MEN. The Ferran Outfit v2

Ain’t no cure for the winter-time blues…

Some days the motivation just isn’t there. You don’t want to work, you don’t want to write, and you don’t want to do much of anything. It’s not because you’re lazy or from the lack of energy, it’s because there is just isn’t the inspiration to give you the creative spark needed. It could also be the season. The blah days of winter always get me down. Or perhaps, something shiny and new could be catching your attention distracting you from the task at hand. I know I’ve been distracted lately and haven’t been as creatively funny as I’d like. But enough of my ramblings, today’s outfit comes from PRISM for MEN. The Ferran Outfit v2 is a FREE group gift from L’ Homme Magazine SL Reader’s Group by pasting this link in local chat  secondlife:///app/group/bbb3ae61-39ea-8674-8b3e-9a99867b911a/about  , where you can join the group for FREE and pick up this gift from the vendor at PRISM for MEN. This outfit comes in four sizes and two different textures.
Now I need to get back to work… Oh look, a shiny…

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

Midnight Lake_002

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.  Of course I tried to sneak his….  His sweater is always the softest warmest option.  It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch had a whole fatpack of their Agnetha Winter Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on a lucky letter “L”.   Included are eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I found these fabulous Vintage Jeans at Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.  This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again :).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Fishing For Silver

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulous Readers! Last week on the FabFree Blog [HERE], I mentioned that Sn@tch had put out a new 7 Seas Fishing Prize and I did show you one of the 20 piece Fish For This:  New Years Grab Bag, but hadn’t had a chance to go through all of the items yet.

Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold

As I am digging my way through the boxes and bags, it seems that most items are gold or silver which is really nice because they will mix and match with a ton of different colours from my inventory!  There are casual items, and formal items and even some accessories and jewelry!

Today I am wearing The Delilah Wrap Top and Changes Crystal Earrings which were both free in the set.  I am wearing the beautiful satin wrap top with a leather skirt from my inventory by Stories & Co. by Flowey, however I think this blouse would look really nice with a pair of black pants too.

How To Fish For This

Again, If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch.  Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too!  No bait is required.

I’m still digging – stay tuned to see more!

Stronger than Super Glue

Cassandra Couture - Dema Outfit

Vice Squad…

It has been over a year since I finally kicked the smoking habit. But sometimes, I want to fall back to that old stress-relieving crutch. I’ve just started back to work after two relaxing weeks off and the stress wall smacked me right in the face. I felt like all I was doing was spinning around in circles getting nothing accomplished.  It would have been easy to light one up and inhale my stress away. But, if it’s one thing I’ve learned, cigarettes are like potato chips, you can’t have just one. So I’ll just burn one virtually and tell you about some fabulous group gifts I’ve found. By joining the group at Cassandra Couture for FREE, you can receive the FREE Dima Outfit.  This outfit comes complete in the standard mesh sizes and includes shoes! There are also other past group gifts available.

Wicker Man…

You can also get some nice furniture at PiCaZZo. By spending just $15L on joining the group you can get the Contemporary Wicker Set as a free gift. The chair has several poses and animations to choose from. With my stress level, I picked the smoking one (of course). I also found a FREE Seltzer Bottle at %Percent Furniture & Lighting when I joined the subscriber. I guess smoking in the virtual world isn’t doing me any good. I better go look for a better stress reliever…

We match!

We match!

Hey there!

Before I begin, I’d just like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and that I hope you had a great one! As for myself, I’m pretty excited to continue my adventures in Second Life; who knows what kind of fun and freebies 2017 will bring! Even with the festivities behind us, I was still in the mood for bright colors and knitwear and was very pleased to see that the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Marquesse Pret a Porter was a great mix of both. The Paige shirt was certainly a welcomed addition to my virtual wardrobe and not only for its vivid color (which is perfect for when you’re in the mood for color blocking by the way) but also for its fun and flirty design. Best of all, you can have this off shoulder little number for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group (no join fee required). Simply cut and paste the following link into the main chat box in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link when it pops up in main chat. Aforementioned link is; secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and if you’ve just joined us, welcome to the group!

Coming to a close

With the Winter Cart sale at the Wash coming to an end today, this is the last chance for you to pick up some goodies for yourself and your friend for just 10 L. I’ve recently purchased a new pair of Slink hands (finally something to cross off that bucket list) and thought that it was about time that I got a manicure. Pictured is the Diti Gold Omni set from La Boheme and the package includes a manicure set for Maitreya as well as a manicure and pedicure set for Slink and Omega.

I also stopped by the Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes cart at the Wash to pick up to pick up this gorgeous pair of boots. I own a similar pair in the real world and am always tickled when I get to dress the avatar in a similar fashion. You don’t need prim feet for this pair and the package includes a nifty alpha mask and shoe base to help with the fit.

My little friend

I stumbled upon this cute little guy on the Marketplace and thought to include him in the picture because our outfits matched (lol). For just 0L you can get a Baby Polar Bear for yourself too at the Meli Imako Marketplace store. The bear itself comes in both standing and sitting positions (shown) as well as AO, UV, Normals, Specular maps and textures. Full disclosure, as I haven’t gotten into building in SL yet, I’ve no idea what all of those are but the polar bear is cute and I’ve always had a thing for keeping odd animals around the house…

Speaking of, with two cats, several owls and now this little guy, I’m going to have to find a place that sells kibble for them all. Until next time guys!
