Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

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

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pick Up! I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

Pick Up! I'm Calling You On My Banana PhoneThe banana phone is not necessarily a very effective mode of conversation, however it’s worth a shot when nothing else works and if it still fails at the very least – onlookers will be entertained.

In this blog post I have news about a new group gift at Poeme and also am revisiting Just Ordinary to show off a free instore group gift.

More of the extraordinary

I had recently blogged a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift that is available at Just Ordinary and if you liked that one shown here – you’ll love this one too!  The Char Dress in Denim Flowers that you see me wearing today is available as a free gift for Just Ordinary inworld group members (free to join!)

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic

Now About Those Shoes…

When you join the Poeme inworld group (has a 1L group join fee), you gain access to the Double Happy Roses Chucks in the floral Rhyme print.  They were just what I needed for today’s ensemble, so it was perfect timing that I came by them!

Shoe Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Unrigged + Alpha Layer

Just One Last Thing!

The Endless Summer Hello Sunshine pose that I am using today includes the bananas (for making phone calls of your own) and is available in an instore gacha at 50L per play at Le Poppycock!

The Next Day

MHScandalizeSnatchHope you don’t mind if I blog with my eyes closed…

UGH!  The events of last night flooded back into my brain as I winced in pain trying to hide the from the sun, which seemed to be extra bright this morning.  An afternoon of Mojitos with Pru [shown here], turned into more mojitos and a girls night out.  She is such a bad influence on me :O!  Why, oh why did I drink so  much, and since when do I dance on bars?  I better call Pru and see what other “crazy girls night out” things I can’t remember!

I did manage to shower and get dressed for the day,

but no way am I ready to be upright!  Thank goodness I had picked out today’s outfit yesterday so I could just slide into it this morning.

  • The Jeans:  I stopped by MH Unique Design and picked up these fantastic ripped denim capris that are available THIS WEEKEND ONLY as a free group gift with a free group join.
  • The Blouse:  My Suzy Tied Jersey Top is available as low as 50L in the riot vendor at Sn@tch for a limited time. TP your friends and bring the price down!
  • The Shoes:  Scandalize put these awesome Ainara Shoes for Maitreya out as a free group gift to their inworld group members (100L to join).  A texture change HUD is included!

Scandalize. Ainara (FREE)/me feels around blindly for her shades and aspirin.

Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

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

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!
