My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

S-Trapped in My Blue Skull

S-Trapped In My Blue Skull

It’s always nice when a great store like Sweet Intoxication includes the fellas in their group gifts. I was checking out the hunt scene when I stopped over by the Sweet Intoxication main-store. They have a really nice ladies gift out, but of course that just wasn’t my style (unless you all want to see me in a pair of cute capris some time?), but they did have out this really great men’s Strapped Blue Skull shirt. The group is FREE to join and after that you only need to pay 1L for the shirt. So you get the gift for a total of just 1L. A great deal for a quality clothing item.

The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has the nice detailing of the buckled, black straps on it. I took a picture of the back of the shirt so you could see why it was called “blue skull”. There is, of course, a blue skull on the upper back in the styling of the shirt.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

Hey Fabulous people!

Astrid’s been on vacation this week… BUT… I decided to sneak in with a post and a few items for all the men out there. Because everyone needs a good towel in this summer heat.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

If you aren’t a member of Legal Insanity, the group is really worth joining. It’s going to set you back a one time fee of 99L, but there is an entire wall of past group gifts, including this rigged mesh men’s towel (there’s a ladies version on the wall too) that you can pick up. Each gift will cost you just 1 little Linden after paying your group fee and they are high quality gifts. The current group gift that is on the counter is FREE.

I also stopped by Nerdy Girl, which has recently moved to a new location. With all this warm weather, I was thinking cool… or Nerdy. See it how you will. And the current group gift at Nerdy Girl fit the bill. There are a set of matching men’s and women’s lingerie there (yes ladies… you get the goods at the shop too!) in either this For the Alliance! which I’m showing you in the picture above… OR a For the Horde! set if you prefer that. You can show your allegiance to Nerd-dom either way😉

The boxers come in system layers as well as omega appliers for mesh bodies, making them a really great group gift. They are FREE with your one time fee of 25L.

Sit Stay Good Dog

Sit Stay Good Dog“Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…” Does anyone else start singing that song from Grease when every they see “Summer Lovin'” written anywhere? lol Okay maybe it’s just me. Since it’s been a minute since my last post, I’ve filled this one with fun stuff from the Women Only Hunt, and one item from the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Both hunts started June 1st, and there are so many cute things to hunt for, it was hard to pick what to show! Also you may have seen a few posts from some of my Fabulous teammates. I’ll link to their posts in the credits as well, just in case!

I’m going to start with this puppy and ice cream pose from Le Poppycock because it’s my favorite. I’m such a sucker for French bulldogs, and this little guy, or gal, is just irresistible. The pose shown in the top photo, the puppy, and the delicious looking ice cream cone are all included in the FREE Women Only Hunt gift at Le Poppycock. If your a photographer this pose set is especially great, because the puppy is meant to be worn. Wearing the puppy puts your avatar in the pose so you can use it without having to rez anything. The gift also comes with the pose, so you could rez the puppy and use the pose alone, allowing for a little more versatility.Sit Stay Good Dog 2Also part of the Women Only Hunt is this frilly little crop top from 1 Hundred. This is an applier top with appliers for almost everything you could imagine. There is a single hud that includes appliers for mesh breasts (Lolas, Lush, Mirage, Delicq,Omega), and mesh bodies (Wowmeh, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Omega). Additionally this FREE WOH gift from 1 Hundred includes classic system layers for non mesh wearers.

This sinfully sweet full-body tattoo is another FREE WOH gift. Chemical Princess put this “Cupcake” tattoo out, and I just love it. The tattoo is filled with yummy looking candies, cupcakes, ice cream, and other sweets. This gift tattoo comes with an Omega applier, a Slink applier, and classic system layers. Tattoo lovers like me won’t want to miss out on this delicious tattoo!

Arise is also participating in the WOH and their gift is a beautiful set of “Sunny” eyes. These shining bright blue eyes are part of the FREE set from Arise. The gift includes a brown, grey, lime, purple, and sky pair of eyes along with the light blue ones shown. In the package you’ll get a set of mesh eyes for each color and a matching system eye layer. Sunny is definitely an appropriate name for these eyes, each of the colors are equally bright and vibrant.

Back to the Summer Lovin’ part of this post! Slipper put out these cute sandals as their Summer Lovin’ Hunt gift. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so these cute shoes are just 1 linden. The gift includes a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. Also, Slipper is participating in the Women Only Hunt as well, so don’t forget to hunt down that gift while you’re there!

Why So Early Kittens?

Snapshot_004Hey there FabFree readers!!  Today, as you can see…  I am up WAY too early tendng to the needs of my very needy kittens.  Why are they always up so early?  I wish I was a morning person…  Seriously, if I could wake up at 8:30 every day, that would be just fine with me:).  Work days, weekends, whatever – I think that’s a natural time for me to just wake up without alarms…  or cats.

These Witty Cats by the way, are available at this round of The Arcade Gacha by Mutresse for 50L per play.  There are several really funny/sassy cats to try your luck on.

I haven’t even had a chance to get dressed yet, but since I haven’t, I suppose I should tell you that this cute Flamingo Love Lingerie Set is available at Milk Tea as a free hunt prize for the Women Only Hunt!  The hunt icon you are looking for is a little coconut, and it’s really quite easy to find given the hint that you can pick up at the landing.  I’m including their vendor ad below so that you can see the full set up close.
WOH_Flamingos & summerI should also mention, since they fall under 75L that the items used to build the scene in my photos are mostly made up of items from the Dust Bunny Wanderlust Gacha Set (Arcade Gacha – 50L per play).  I have used the Hadera Caravan, Apothecary Cabinet, Belted Pillows and Bouquet Teacup.

The “Let’s Have a Good Day Coffee Tray” can be found in the FollowUs Marketplace store as a dollarbie!  If I am up anyways, I might as well eat and get on with my day, right?:)

By the Beautiful Briny Sea

By the SeaCome with me Fab Free, to the sea! Okay maybe not to the sea, but definitely to SaNaRae! The current round of SaNaRae has tons of cute stuff, and I scored this cute maxi dress and the sunglasses by playing a few gachas. In addition, this hairstyle is a FREE subscribo gift at Pink Hustler. I’m kind of in love with it. To top things up, I found some fun nails on the Marketplace to add a little extra attitude to this perfect summer outfit.I Wanna Tell YouWhile shopping for hair, I literally happened across this freaking adorable subscriber gift at Pink Hustler. I love that the style of this FREE hair is a little bit pinup and a little bit punk rock. All you need to do to get this FREE hairstyle is join the subscriber at Pink Hustler. This awesome freebie includes more than one size, and a color change hud that allows you to change either side of the hair independently, or you could make both sides the same color. There are lots of options to choose from.

I love the fun bright colors in these funky sunglasses from Minimal. The glasses are a gacha common from Minimal at the SaNaRae event. These cool shades are just 75 lindens per play, and there are tons of variations. Also at SaNaRae is this ultra comfortable and just as cute maxi dress from Mignon. Also a gacha common, this dress is just 50 lindens per play. Make sure to try the demos before you decide which gacha to play! I genuinely love this casual look, and scouts honor, I got these two gachas on my first try.

Lastly, I couldn’t resist adding some fun nails to this already awesome look. While poking through the Marketplace I came across these brightly colored stiletto style manicured nails from SHOCK. These are just 1 linden! Included in the package are nails to fit Maitreya, Slink (Gesture, Splayed, Elegant1, Casual), TMP, and Classic non mesh hands, and a color change/re-size hud with 5 color options. Read the note card included about fitting, it saved me what would have otherwise been a headache!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Wickedly Floral

Snapshot_008
If you love lingerie in SL, you should make a quick trip to Wicked and have a look around the shop for the hidden May Flowers Hunt Icon.

I hunted for the hidden flowers, which were super easy to find, paid it 1 little linden and was sent the wicked sweet floral Valerie Negligee you see me wearing in my photo today.  Valerie is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies and standard mesh sizing is included too.  The panties are not included, but I am sure you can dig up a pair of cute ones to match in your inventory easy enough.  I went with the mesh Lara Panties that came free with my Lara Mesh Body when I purchased it.  The darker pink colour is a spot on match to the lace trim.

As an alternative, this would make a super summer  blouse as well! I bet it’s adorable with a pair of denim shorts.

This beautiful mesh swimsuit, in all the standard sizes, called Seaside Chocolate Leather is the FREE May group gift to group members.

You’ll need to wear your group tag, which is 100L to join, but remember, you’ll be getting monthly group gifts that are just as lovely as this one!:)

So Berry Sweet

So Berry Sweet

As a child, one of my very favorite things was my Strawberry Shortcake doll collection! But of course, Strawberry Shortcake herself was the best! So when I saw that Nerdy Girl was giving this Berry Sweet 1L pajama gift as part of the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt, I knew I had to have it!

This sweet gift is yours too for just 1L and a little bit of hunting time at the main-store. It’s mesh in all the standard sizes, and the cute print and little red tie at the waist is just perfect. Sweet dreams!
