Where do we go? Where do we go now?

Where do we go? Where do we go now?

You guys, this morning I put my baby girl on the school bus for her first day of Kindergarten. She was so excited and waved happily out the window as the bus drove away. I am…okay, kind of. I know she’s going to do great but I could use some hair pats. haha So I called my mom to apologize for ever growing up and putting her through this and then I came here to find something pretty to distract myself with.

My Distraction

This sweet dress was only 25L at Belle Epoque. It is marked down for yesterday’s 25L Tuesday and was still discounted this morning when I went and scooped it up for myself. You can choose either the white that I’m wearing or pink. Both are lovely and have that classy, timeless look that I’ve come to associate with Belle Epoque. I stuck around and took my picture on Belle Epoque’s pretty sim. Even in this gorgeous location and wearing these fabulous things, I realize that this probably isn’t my best work. But I’m fragile right now, okay? Just tell me I’m pretty and give me chocolate and/or bourbon. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go see how much L I can blow on gachas.

Is It Spring Yet?

Belleepoque25LTuesdayHEY!  Do you know what day it is?

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another round of 25L Tuesday!  I received a notice in the Belle Epoque inworld group last night to notify me that they are offering their {Uma} skirt and two different coloured tops (I am wearing the orange, but there is also a sunshiny yellow!) for 25L a piece and it just screamed “BLOG ME”, so I had to show it to you!

I know you all love to see free stuff here on FabFree, but you know…  sometimes these offers are actually less expensive than a group join fee, so I thought they were worth a mention here.  I know that if I had found these three items as group gifts with a 75L join fee, I’d have paid it to pick them up, so paying 25L a pop for them is all the same to me!  Plus…  SPRING FLOWERS! (SWOON)

Try Before You Buy!

The three {Uma} pieces come in one fitted mesh size that fits my Maitreya Lara body like a glove, but since it doesn’t specify which body exactly they fit, please do try a demo before you buy.  While you are there make sure you check out the lucky boards outside on the lawn, and the group gifts available inside the store.

Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

From Head to Toe

The Seamstress 1

It’s Tuesday! And that means 25L specials! I made away like a bandit today and put together a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on. Some of you who don’t roleplay may like the looks of these deals too!

From Head to Toe!

I made my first stop at Calico where they have out two hairstyles for just 25L per color pack (or 150L for the fatpack). I chose the pretty “Daphne” style you see in my picture. It’s a fully mesh style, but also includes an optional flexi attachment (not shown) if you want some added softness. For just 25L per pack, this style is a steal!

A dress, a dress!

EvelineInTheBox never ceases to amaze me with pretty dresses for my wardrobe. This dress is perfect for roleplay (I’ve set myself up as a seamstress here in this scene, but this dress is really perfect for so many things), but this dress would also work great for a casual date or every day wear as well. Best yet for your 25L you also get a color change hud and 10 color choices, including brown, pink, moss, lavender, charcoal, red, sky (shown), black, olive, and salmon.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

The Seamstress 2

A free gift too

While I was at EvelineInTheBox, I took the opportunity to pick up their free Group gift! The group is free to join, and they currently have out these pretty leather and star anklets. These are made to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as there is a classic size with a resize script in the box.

One more stop.

I finished my wandering at On a Lark where I picked up a set of sandals. These flats are just 25L per color (or 150 for the fatpack of colors which includes all the colors plus all the metal textures too). I’m showing off the blue one’s here with the silver straps. For just 25L these Flat Sandals by On a Lark are a steal and come in sizes to fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

Winter Maiden

25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Bathroom Set –  Mystique – Bathroom Sink Bura in Creme – (25L for 25L Tuesday) – hurry, it’s still sitting out!

Dark Grace

Snapshot_004
In time with Astrid’s 25L Tuesday post for today [HERE], I have news about another 25L Tuesday find that you might like!  Just in time for Halloween priced at just 25L today, Belle Epoque has this blood stained version of her very pretty fitmesh Grace Dress which she has affectionately named Dark Grace.

To complete my bloody look today, I have added the Punk’d makeup applier that has added bruised eyes, a busted lip and a bit of blood to the nose.  Not too blood drippy, just a little bit of beat up from a long night of dark mischief!  This is a free group gift at The Horror that is compatible with the system face in the form of a tattoo layer and also Omega for Omega compatible mesh heads… like my Catwa Candy Head.

My Secret Garden On Tuesday

My Secret Garden on Tuesday

It’s 25L Tuesday! Time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe! On a Lark has out another lovely dress for the ladies… and again it is one that is versatile enough to be for roleplay or everyday. You can pick it up in a myriad of colors for just 25L each and this pretty dress comes in fits for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Venus, and Werwolf. There are no standard mesh sizes in the package and it does not include an alpha, though if you did some fiddling, you might be able to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I decided I needed a place to lounge about and found the perfect seating courtesy of Crys Secret Garden. They have generously put out a gift for FabFree members.

Just join the FabFree group FREE by coping and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat, clicking the link, and then joining the group.

Teleport to Crys Secret Garden and pick up this lovely rock garden with daffodils free! It includes 5 sits and is only 6 prims.
