A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy hunting!

Free as a Wren (err…Bird)

Free as a Bird
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am so excited to join the Fab Free team!  I’ve been a long time Fab Free member, and it is a dream come true to blog for all of you.  I’m looking forward to sharing my fashion finds as I journey around the grid, so without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Birds of a Feather…

I don’t know about you, but I love it when I head to a store to pick up an item and just happen to spot another gift that I knew nothing about ahead of time.  It’s definitely a welcome added bonus!  That happened to me the other day when I followed Aline’s advice in her post here, and stopped by Ewa Boutique to pick up their latest Fab Free group gift.  Right away, I noticed the sleek Aghata dress vendor on the wall.  All I had to do was change my group tag to the FitMesh Fanatics group, tap the board, and pay zero Linden dollars …. easy peasy!  Since the group is free to join, my budget was just as thrilled as I was with my discovery.  This strapless frock hugs my curves and allows my shoulders to soak up some late summer sunshine.  The gift includes adorable lacing and ties on the sleeves, a texture change HUD, and a coordinating pair of Valkire heels.  If red is not up your alley, you have 11 other hues to select from.  I’m sure you will love this dress as much as I do!

Sizes/Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • EBody

Until next time,

Wishing You Healing & Positivity

Lets stay in bed

Happy Monday, Fab Free! I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy. I’ve been feeling a lot of negativity in real life right now due to COVID-19 taking over the world… but I hope we can all look on the bright side, stay positive and try to have fun this week. On that note, I also want to send best wishes and healing to all the victims who are being affected by the virus right now. Let’s all stay inside, get cozy and protect ourselves by doing a little bit of fabulously free shopping in the comfort of our homes.

Spring Healing

Have I ever mentioned that my favourite colour is purple? In spiritual communities, purple or violet represents spiritual awareness and in Chakra healing, it is believed that the energy of this colour helps one become more aware of oneself and others around you. During this difficult time, maybe what we all need is a bit more purple in our lives. Violet and purple also remind of Spring- which is almost here- so let’s celebrate to that! To cheer myself up I’ve put together a lovely matching violet outfit, and I hope that it makes you feel better too!

You can pick up a gorgeous Violet “Barcelona jumpsuit” at Apple Blossom and Seeds. This gift is only available at their satellite store at the good place sim, not at their mainstore. The group is free to join. I am not sure how long this gift will be available so go quickly.

Sizes included

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Suami

I paired the jumpsuit with the Suami Heels, my go-to pair of shoes with virtually any outfit. These amazing heels are a group gift at KC Couture. Their group is only 25L to join and you get access to a bunch of wonderful shoes, anklets, sandals and heels. Suami is my fave! There was a nice purple option that matched the Barcelona Jumpsuit perfectly, and you can change these heels to many colours to match any outfit in your inventory!

Stay safe and I am sending healing to you all.
xx

Repping the T Dot

Repping the TDot

I am totally repping my home town of Toronto in this t-shirt today – you know, Drake lyrics on my shirt and all that jazz!  Toronto is a concrete jungle of greyness and insanity at times, but right now the trees are in bloom, the sun is shining and I’m ready to take it all in…but maybe a nap first? Good thing this exceedingly comfortable pool table just happened to be here…

Mom’s Plan

I got my Drake-lyric adorned shirt today at High V, where they put out a gift for mother’s day for both males and females, and it’s entirely free.  It’s a great little crop top for days where you just kinda want to laze around, while also showing off your midriff!  No group join required, just a click!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Slouch On

I found a pair of sweatpants that work really nicely with my t-shirt at Atik.  I like the striking colour combination of lime green and purple, as well as the slouchy fit of the pants.  You can grab your own pair by joining the group for free (make sure you end up in Atik , look to your left from the landing point – took me a while to find it myself!)

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Isis
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL Fitmesh with an Alpha Layer

Oh, and just so everyone knows, I refuse to call Toronto “The 6ix” because that’s just lame.  It’s T.O., because I’m old school like that.  Ahem.

Run, Don't Walk

Hey Fab Free!  I don’t have too much time for a chat today, because I’ve got  time-sensitive gifts for you!  Eek!

Hush Up and Give the Deets

Ok, I’ll be quiet now and tell you where I got my outfit!  Astrid picked up some great free gifts from Redeux.  The thing is, you have a very limited time to grab these free gifts if you haven’t had a chance yet!  The event is closing today, so have a peek at a few of the things I picked up from Le Fil Cassé and Noir.  My dress by Le Fil Cassé is really lovely in satiny textures and three fabulous colours.  It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  My heels by Noir are very versatile and come with a colour change HUD that will suit your needs, I’m sure.  They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Rush down to Redeux, join the group and grab your gifts before it’s all over!

RUN!

Make A Wish

Make A Wish
When I was little and I came across a fountain, I would beg my Mom for pennies to throw in so I could make a wish.  I can’t remember what I would wish for, but with the vivid imagination I always had, I bet it was some wild and crazy stuff.  What are Canadian kids throwing in fountains now?  We have no more pennies!  If I have to start throwing in nickels, you can bet I’m going to expect it’s a bulk wish purchase.

Limited Time Offer @ Siss Boom

The haltered Trade Wind Dress in Salmon is available at Siss Boom until Wednesday for just 55L.  In the folder, you’ll find a designed dress and a solid version.  I am wearing the solid version, but the designed version is lovely too!

Sizes Included:

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

FREEEEEEE Shoes!

You can find these gorgeous baubled (is that a word?  I may have made it up – I do that…) Pamela Mule Shoes in Antique Pink as a free group gift at G&D with a free group join right beside the events posters in the store. These shoes are compatible with Maitreya, Slink & Belleza and include a texture change HUD for the metal, inner sole, sole and pearls.

A Quest for Treasure

A Quest for Treasure

Hey Hey Fab Free!

The weekend may be winding down, and the snow may still be swirling in my part of the world, but my mind is fixed with laser-like precision on spring, warmth and all things connected therein. What can I say, at least I’m consistent.  I found a treasure trove of goodies for you, so read on!

The Quest Continues…

Did you manage to take part in the Flawless Game Show Quest yet?  There’s one day left to partake in this fun game, where you TP to a bunch of stores, answer some questions and at the end you get all sorts of goodies!  I showed you some other gifts I received here.  The whole thing took me about 45 minutes, so it’s well worth it.  Today, I’m showing off the Orquidea Still Summer dress – which is a gorgeous hue of turquoise dappled with sea birds.  It just makes me happy.  It comes in sizes XXS-L with an Alpha layer!  Oh and…psssst….it’s free!

Piles of Presents

So, have you been to Pure Poison?  I’ve been a fan of their shoes for quite some time, picking up their stuff at events.  I hadn’t been to the store though (weird, I know), and nipped in out of curiosity the other day.  Holy mackarel guys – there is quite literally an Alladin’s cave of gifts hiding in there, and they’re all FREE.  There are two group gifts in the front entrance area, one that Astrid showed back in December here, and the other that I’m wearing on my tootsies today!  You can wear the shoes and socks separate if you prefer!  They come sized for Isis, Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass feet.  Don’t just stop there though…. head into the gacha area and take a look at the machines – loads of them have the words “group gift” printed on them, as well as there being a giant wall full of accessories – the bangles and necklace I’m wearing today are two of the finds I came across.  You’ll be accessorizing forever!  You can join the Pure Poison group for free – hop to it!

Phew.  I’m getting a little overexcited!  I hope you all enjoy!

Turn it Up

Turn it Up

As I write, it is officially the weekend in my part of the world!  Are you ready to turn up the volume on life?  I’m in one of those kinds of moods.  Some weekends it’s all about curling up and chilling, but I’m ready to blast noise from my proverbial speakers… and I’ve got a sexy outfit to help with it!

Turn it Up

I found myself at the Pacagaia store, and there’s a new group gift for February out!  It’s actually pretty awesome because there are four outfits included!  I chose to wear the Gio pants and top, which come with a colour change HUD to change the colour of the bandeau top and the panties that peek through the jeans. You can pick up this sexy little outfit by joining the Pacagaia VIP group for 100L  (Just a heads-up there are two groups, so ensure you join the VIP version).  There are loads of gifts up on the wall to burrow into, so it’s deffo worth the fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Now go turn up the volume on your weekend!
