School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

All That I Am

All That I Am

“All that I am, and all that I hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

A Gift to Celebrate Mothers Everywhere

The quote above is so true!  There is no love like that of a mother for her child.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Hilly Haalan has set out these deep pink heels and matching clutch as a free gift for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions Group, which is completely free to join.  The Mitzi Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink high mesh feet feature an open toe box to allow your tootsies room to wiggle and get a breath of fresh air.  With a semi-transparent body, and delicate ankle straps, this pair of summer footwear is elegant and comfortable.  I love the raspberry pink shade!  Coordinating perfectly with the shoes, the polka-dotted Mitzi clutch is just the right size for stowing a tube of lipstick and essentials for the day.

When in Doubt……Wear Polka Dots

The strappy, slip-style Pink Dot Dress from Kendrasy Creations harmonized beautifully with the playful, pink, polka dot theme established by my purse.  Falling to below the knees, this frock features a deeply scooped back, and a pretty, scalloped edge on the bodice.  Its figure-hugging cut emphasizes all your curves, but keeps you covered in all the right places.  An added, fitted skirt panel comes with permission to modify so that it molds perfectly to your mesh body, but I didn’t need to adjust it at all for my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 60L, you can wrap yourself in this sensual summer dress, which fits both classic and mesh avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Omega
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Pure Elegance

To shield my eyes from the glare of midday, I opted to add a chic, white, floppy sun hat that I discovered for only 69L on the Marketplace at L&R Studios.  Its snowy, white suede material provided elegant sun protection as I strolled along the streets of Maison de L’amitie with my pal Ripley by my side.  Often, I need to edit and stretch hats to get them to cover all my hair, but I only needed to slightly adjust where this hat sat on my head for it to fit just right.

On a more personal note, tomorrow will be my first Mother’s Day in RL without my beloved Mom.  😦 I miss her so very much!  If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother with you, please give her an extra hug tomorrow if you can, in honor of my mom.  I wish I still could hug her.  Until next time, take care, my friends.

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.

Bright Sunshiny Day

Bright Sunshiny Day

When you call my name…

… It makes my day that much brighter… even if it’s just to pick up a gallon of milk at the market. So I’m off to the store to pick up the essentials until we can make a grocery run later this weekend….

Or just walk on by…

Today I’m showing off the Men’s Floral Taupe T-Shirt by Virtual Glitter that happens to be the 1L hunt gift in the Flowerage Hunt 2. This shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. After putting on the shirt I knew what pants shorts I wanted to wear with it. I put on the Paramilitary Shorts, the FREE L’Homme gift at Prism for Men, I originally showed [HERE] and the Black Sunglassesthe Moolto Spring Fling Hunt gift at QualityDesignZ that  I first showed [HERE].
Yeah, Yeah…I won’t forget the milk….

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.

The East End

East End

Not a safe place to be…

Walking the East End at night is not the smartest thing to do. But when the car breaks down, sometimes you just have to take the risk. I see a big red stain on the sidewalk and hope someone dropped a bottle of ketchup … PLEASE let it be ketchup. I think I’ll walk a little faster now…

Somebody’s watching me…

I’m strolling the streets in a new group gift from Spazio. The MH17 Jacket, Jeans and Blue Tennis Shoes complete outfit is FREE to Hipnose-Spazio group members and the group is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes S-L and the jeans come in XS-XL. The non-rigged shoes come with a resizer to get just the right look.
Ok, non-rigged shoes, don’t fail me now….

ETA:  This group gift is no longer available, but there are two very nice men’s group gifts out, still with a free group join, so be sure to check out the shop anyways!

Evening Anxiety

Evening Anxiety

When thoughts are swimming in your brain…

… and you can’t sleep. Nothing in particular is bothering you but your brain just doesn’t want to shut down for the night. Was it too much caffeine? or perhaps too much screen time before bed? Whatever is keeping me awake, I might as well get dressed and go sit outside. Perhaps the cool evening breeze will tire me out and let my brain rest for ….. ONLY THREE MORE HOURS? Dangit!

Over-sized is not under-dressed….

My comfy evening attire tonight includes the Oversized Sweater by GizzA Creations. This sweater is FREE to members of the L’Homme group. The sweater comes in the standard mesh sizes and is not only comfy, but stylish as well. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Baggy Lee Shorts is a FREE gift to members of the Damoour group. This group does have a 20L join fee, but there are more gifts on the wall for members.
Well, dang, I might as well put on a pot of coffee and start my day…. I’m gonna be so tired later on…..

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂
