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.

In Denial

Snapshot_001
We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!

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?

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!

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.

Down to the Crossroads

-Labyrinth- New Year's Gift (Dapper Suit)

Trying to flag a ride…

Clapton told me to go, so I went down to the Crossroads Event and found not one but TWO FREE great gifts for us guys. Directly in front of the landmark provided, you will see the gifts. The first one is the Dapper Suit, provided by Labyrinth. The blue suit comes in standard sizes and with it, you also receive a HUD to change colors on the tie and shirt, six different colors for each equals 36 different combinations!

Everybody passed me by…

Also at Crossroads Event is the FREE Kyo Black Coat by Modulus. This double-breasted frock coat is very stylish and would work well for numerous situations. And now my weekend is over and I have to go back to frocking work….

A Warming Trend

Morning Dew_001

I see a trend.

This warm weather thing must be a trend. I think a few of us have been longing for a break from the cold weather. If you are also into fantasy roleplay (or even if you are not), I’ve found a warm weather outfit that may just suit your fancy. I took a stroll among the flowers with it, but I can see it fitting into a roleplay wardrobe too.

The dress.

The latest group gift from EvelineInTheBox is easily one of my favorite gifts from the creator yet. It is very elaborate with a plunging neckline, shoulder straps, a strap across the chest, and very unique sleeves that sort of remind me of “I dream of Jeanie.” As always, the group is free to join, making the gift free to you.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Werwolf
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wrap it up.

I paired my new dress with a unique gift from Merlific. These Maitreya specific leg wraps not only fit like a dream, they are sexy too. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. You’ll get a gift package that contains five colors (black, white, red, blue, and purple). I’m showing off the black in my picture as it matched my outfit. Don’t miss your chance to pick these up!

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

That Morning-After Feeling

Sweatpants

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I don’t know how she does it… She drinks like a sailor and then can be so chipper the next morning. While I on the other hand, feel like there’s someone inside my head attacking me with an ice pick and my mouth tastes like a family of Bigfoots had a picnic in there. We had a late night staff meeting midnight margaritas and I’m feeling the after effects today.  It was nice that she let me sleep in while she ran out to do errands. She could have left the bottle of aspirin a little closer though… I think I’ll just lay here for a bit in a new group gift at the Menstuff LoungeRobbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos has placed the Blue Pagoda Sweats out for group members ($50L joining fee). The outfit includes the sweatpants, sneakers and even a shirt (that I somehow lost in a game of stri … cards). Maybe I’ll try and get some work done while she’s out  and then a nap… yes definitely a nap…

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…

A Day in Gray

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  If you happen to have a space 60L kicking around, I know just the place to spend it!

Don’t forget your purse…

You will need a little bit of cash for today’s find (60L to be exact), but to be fair…  Sometimes group fees cost more than this little dress does!  [Satus Inc.] has just released their new Anya Collar Mini Dress in four beautiful colours, and for a limited time, they are just 60L per colour.  I am wearing the gray today, but you will also find black, blue and pink.  I think the sheer midriff, slit skirt and studded collar add so much sexy to what would normally be a very basic design.  Another feature that I can appreciate is the realistic wrinkled texturing.

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP
