Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome. Today we are taking a rare look at a Prudence Rexroth in her natural habitat, and preferred state of being. Notice the sleep mask she wears serves a dual purpose, warning any who might disturb her away while simultaneously blocking out any and all light. Also noteworthy, the casual comfortable attire, essential for deep restful sleep. All cheekiness aside, I do have a very serious relationship with my bed. I love sleeping, and I think naps are deeply undervalued. Just like toddlers, most adults I know (myself included) are cranky when they haven’t had enough rest!

This sleep mask from Poeme is the perfect sleep accessory for those like me who take their siestas seriously. The Poeme group is just 1 linden to join at this time and you can pick up this cute FREE gift on the second floor. It’s sitting in a box on a table near the group lucky letter boards and Midnight Mania. There’s also a June group gift available on the Poeme main floor, so don’t miss out on the chance to score some gifts and stay for some lucky letter play.

The comfy casual tank top Pru has on is a FREE subscriber gift at Curve. It comes with a color change hud for 6 total color options. To get this sweet gift, all you have to do is join the Curve subscriber, once your name is added in the Curve subscriber you’ll be sent this FREE gift automatically.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Prince and the Pea

Price and the Pea

Waited on Hand and Foot….

You’d think that would be great, someone talking care of your every need. Adjusting the pillows, pulling down the covers because you are hot, pulling them up because you are cold, having all your meals served to you in bed…  It is pretty awesome…. for a while, then it gets old and you want to do things for yourself. I’m happy to say that all my help has vanished and I’m glad to be doing things on my own.

Laid Up in Style…

You can still be stylish while convalescing.  I stopped by House of Ruby and found the Ruby Boxers for just 1L as part of the Masters of Style Hunt. These applier boxers come in both Slink and Omega appliers. The netted look to the boxers are great for lounging, recovering or sharing some naughty time with that someone special. The Masters of Style Hunt runs from June 17th through July 31st.

Peaceful

Peaceful

That time of the night…

Bedtime…. This is the time of the night when I’m at my most peaceful. “Good nights” and “sweet dreams” have been said and it’s time to turn in.The doors are locked and the dog is waiting for me to crawl under the covers before she hops up to her favorite spot at the foot of the bed. My peaceful look come by way of House of Ruby. The Peaceful Boxers and Tank is the 1L hunt gift for the Peace By Peace Hunt. The form-fitting look is due to the fact that this is an applier outfit. Appliers come in both Omega and Slink and the tank and boxers can be worn together (as shown) or as separates.  (To be totally honest, I never thought I’d get the hang of appliers, but it’s easy-peasey) All gifts on the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L and the hunt runs all month long. Goodnigzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

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

Evil Bunny

Evil Bunny

I’ve been a Naughty Bunny…

…or I want to be. I found the Jimmy Boxer Briefs at Firelight Creations & Manstuff as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt 7. You can choose to be a nice bunny with a halo or an evil bunny, like me, with the horns. There are nice and naughty eggs to be picked up along the path. So hop your way down the evil (or nice) bunny trail and pick up your $1L Easter treats.

Before Dawn

Snapshot_002
Why. Is. Morning. So. Early?

As you can see…  Even on the best of days I am very much not a morning person.   Most mornings, it is pure luck if I can manage to pour a cup of coffee and return the cream to the fridge instead of the cup cupboard (has truly happened so many times).  He is up at the crack of BEFORE dawn even on the weekend, puttering around in the kitchen doing whatever he does in there (on a positive note, I do smell coffee already made 🙂 ).

The Calm Before…

Pulling the covers over my head, I try to muffle out the sounds of doors creaking, kitchen cupboards slamming, and dishes clanging.  Even the dogs are grumbling and huffing with disdain of the way too early morning activity going on.  Finally I can hear him making his way to the door and I’m thinking to  myself…  “finally. silence.”.  I hear him digging out his shoes, and taking his coat out of the closet and creeping out the back door to the man cave.

The Storm…

As the door shuts behind him, the dog leash hanging on the hook beside the door falls to the ground…  My eyes squeeze shut tight instantly knowing and bracing for what was about to happen.   ALL of the dogs jump up and run around the bedroom six times, wagging and panting, collar jingling and barking with excitement, because that is all the signal they need for “It’s time for a W.A.L.K” (I spell out the word walk to avoid the craziness,  but they have learned to spell it out).  I tried calling for him, but he had already made his way out of earshot.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, I pick up the littlest one before she gets trampled on in the pre-W.A.L.K mayhem, dig up some clothes and head out for what is hopefully a very uneventful walk…  Gooood morning!

Back To Bed In My NEW Group Gift?

With any luck I’ll be able to slip back into my comfy new night shirt for another hour or two of sweet dreams when I get back.  I picked up the Miranda Chemise Group Gift at !gO! as a group gift.  The !gO! group tends to do a handful of gifts a year and on occasion sends out instore credit offers, so the 50L join fee was no issue for me!  I have found it has more than made up for it.

Available Sizes:

  • Standard Fitmesh & Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

Moooving on

Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

After reading Prudence’s post about this week’s FabFree Designer Friday. I stopped by House of Ruby and picked up the FREE FabFree Group Gift that Loki previously posted [HERE].
