Feel the Love

Feel the Love

Ok FabFree.  First things first, Happy Valentine’s Day!  I want to go on a flowery, goopy rant about how much I heart my FabFree bloggers.  They work tirelessly (without remuneration!) and are constantly cheerful and exuberant about what we do here on the blog.  I was particularly touched by the extra steps that Bunnie and Arielle took the other day when they put together a hunt at our FabFree Info Hub.  These two girls are so sweet, kind and generous that it always makes me grin.  Thank you both so much for your generosity and hard work, it really is wonderful.

What’s at the Hub?

I’m going to show you the lovely hunt gifts from Shanti today, made by the lovely Arielle.   When you search for the little FabFree heart at our Info Hub (it’s a heart with our pretty rainbow on it) you’ll find three items from Shanti.  The Shabby Valentine Dresser is right up my alley (I love Shabby Chic) and is completely free when you wear your FabFree group tag.  With a bit more searching, you’ll also be able to pick up the lovely valentine leggings and booties to go about your day cozy and comfy for 1L each.  How awesome is that?

Legging Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Fitmesh M

I’ll show you the goodies from Paper.Sparrow next time – but if you get a chance to thank Bunnie and Arielle, please do.  They’re awesome.

You’ve got until February 20th to pick up the prizes at the InfoHub!

A Brief Respite

A Brief Respite

Valentine’s Day always falls in the dead of winter where I live, so the bright red and pink hearts that permeate the world at this time really perks up what is usually a cold, dreary month.  Instead of ruminating on the piles of snow outside, I choose to go and frolic among the spring meadows of SL, taking just enough time to smell the roses.

Slip Into It

The latest group gift from COCO has made its appearance, and it’s this slinky slip dress that is sexy in a kind of nonchalant way.  I can just imagine the silky material flowing gracefully over every curve of one’s body.  The best part is, it’s completely free when you join the free COCO group.  There are so many lovely gifts there, and new ones are always popping up, so a great group to stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Heel, Toe!

Mosquito’s Way have updated the group gift section again, much to my excitement.  They always have such well-crafted and pretty gifts for their members, that I always feel a little thrill of excitement when a new one pops up.  Join the group for 50L, and you’ll be able to pick up these pretty ombré heels come in three different colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Ahh, sunshine.  Forgot what that looked like!

Love is Free

Love is Free

It’s Valentine’s Day eve, and that means that you’ve got to sort out all your bits and bobs.  By sort out your bits and bobs, I clearly mean settle on one of the bajillion gorgeous outfits that have been placed out as gifts, hunt items, discounts…my head is spinning with all the possibilities.  I found some really lovely items that came together as a strong contender for my final option for V-Day, but knowing me…I’ll probably change 5 times in a night anyway!

Short and Sweet

There’s a new group gift at Osmia!  I just love it when that happens!  This pretty pink and heart-covered dress is just what I needed for a night of romance (there are also lots of other colours in the HUD if you are not a pink person).  I particularly enjoy the little lace trim around the hem.  The best part is that this pretty dress is completely free!  Just join the Osmia group for free, then click on the vendor that’s just inside the front doors of the shop.  There are some other wonderful gifts there too while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Shoe Addiction

ChicChica are being their usual generous selves with a new gift for all.  No need to join a group to pick up these lovely shoes, you’ll find them for free on the counter of the main store.  There are also some other shoes in the box too (which you can see in the vendor pic below).  The ones I’ve got on come in both silver and gold options and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Gift shoes u might miss

Last Stop

Time for another new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  This delicate little necklace I’ve got on is a cheeky little nod if you’re fending off the advances of some unworthy suitor.  The little gold bar in the middle says “not yours”, which made me giggle a little when I put it on.   There are three other choices of message, as well as a metals HUD with a few different options.  The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to Join, but you’ll find a very large pile of extremely high quality gifts on the main counter of the store, making the join super worth it.

Have you got your outfit sorted yet?

Shhh…I’m hiding out in here cuz I’m trying to escape from all the things I’m supposed to be doing.  The thing is, you put on some lingerie and a robe and next thing you know you’re far too sexy to be doing anything as pedestrian as washing the dishes.  I call this look “the dishes can wait, don’t tell them I’m hiding”.

The Hunt is Afoot!

It’s time for another awesome free hunt hosted by The Free Dove.  This month, the prizes come courtesy of one of my absolute faves – Alaskametro!  If you’re not familiar with how hunts from The Free Dove work, then let me break it down real quick.  There are 10 prizes to be found, but 5 of them will be at The Free Dove, and the other 5 are located at Alaskametro’s main store.  To get the prizes, you’ll need to joint the free Free Dove group, and then hunt for the red heart-shaped boxes all over both sims.  You’ll find some really fantastic prizes this round, including lingerie, robes, makeup, nail polish and even skins.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE robe sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique & Small and Medium.
  • FREE lingerie in BOM layers and an Omega Applier
  • FREE nail polish with appliers for Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE lipstick in BOM and Omega appliers
  • FREE eyeshadow in BOM and Omega appliers

You’ve got til Feb 28th to take part!

Happy Hunting!

Prickly

Prickly

I’m not usually a massive fan of animal prints.  It may have something to do with watching endless episodes of SCTV and Edith Prickley when I was young (holy Canadian reference).  However, once in a while I come across something that is cute, wearable and maybe gives me a bit of jungle fever!  Or…you know…something like that!

Feeling Free

There’s a new addition to the insanely extensive and generous piles of free goodies at The Free Dove!  Reed has brought this lovely animal print minidress (there are also some solid colours and florals in the HUD), as well as the necklace and shoes you see in my photo.  They all go really well together, which inspired me to get it all on and have a night on the town.  To get yours (and the bajillion other lovely freebies at The Free Dove), just join their free group and click on the boxes on Reed’s table.  Couldn’t be easier!

  • Freya

Out of the Ordinary

Out of the Ordinary

You never know when you’ll have a fancy affair to attend in SL.  They seem to pop up every night of the week, and you’ve got to be ready for ’em.  The thing is, you don’t really want to look like everyone else at said events, so it’s nice to keep an eye peeled for something out of the ordinary when you really want to stand out.  I’ve found just the thing!

Back to Queenz

As per usual, Queenz is spoiling members of their free-to-join group.  You’ve got a massive wall of gifts to grab when you get there, and this fun dress is just the latest.  I am particularly taken with the triangle cutouts down the side, since it gives the dress a sexy yet different kind of vibe.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and is just super cool.

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

How Sweet!

Romazin are being amazin’ (see what I did there?) with their latest massive gift to members of their group.  When you join, you gain access to a box full of 11 awesome new gifts.  It’s hard to choose which one I like best, since they’re all really beautiful.  I’ve got on the lovely Cody necklace, which drapes prettily over your décolletage.  The Romazin group is free to join, so do head over to grab these lovely gifts.

Thatched Cottage Dreams

 

Thatched Cottage Dreams

There is something so heartwarming and serene about a cute little thatched cottage.  I love the magical aura they emit – something like out of a fairy story.   The thought of living in a cute cottage, your feet up in front of the fire, is so comforting.  Then, suddenly you might get the urge to get completely dolled up and head out to some glamourous locale, only to return by midnight to a cup of tea and some biscuits in  your little cottage.

Vanilla Cookies

There’s a new group gift at Vanilla Bae!  Always an exciting prospect, since their clothing is just so much fun.  Not only do you get this pretty dress in fatpack of colours, you also get the matching clutch and the adorable shoes too.  Purrrfect for Valentine’s Day!  If you know about Vanilla Bae, then you’ll know that they specialize in strippable clothing.  There are two versions in the box:  the PG version and the Adult version which allows you choose people who can take your clothes off bit by bit.  Ooh, salacious!  The Vanilla Bae group is 50L to join, and you’ll find a few other super cute gifts on the easels by the group gift area too.

Going Coconuts

Going Coconuts
It’s time for a bit of getaway.  I’m going for a bit of a 1950s beach look, but entirely and completely not 1950’s at the same time.  Does that make sense?  It’s one of those moments where you mix your ideas together so hard that you’re really not sure what you’ve come up with, but you like it anyway.  Whatever this is, it’s fun – let’s dive into the details!

A Little 2MUCH

This cute bathing suit from Apple Blossom is the group gift over at the 2MUCH event.  Join their group for free and it’s all yours! It also comes with an HUD that gives you the option to add some sleeves if that’s what you’re in the mood for.  The 2MUCH event runs until February 16th, so don’t leave it too long!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

In the Bag

This classic bag that contains all my obviously essential beach needs (aka 7 fashion magazines and money for drinks in coconuts) is the latest group gift from Vive Nine.  There are two different versions in the box (the other one has wads of money sticking out of it), and so many different hold options that range from girly to dainty to even a rezzable option.  Cool!  The Vive Nine group is free to join, so go grab yours!

Feeling at Home

I was poked the other day with information about this pretty location called Caribbean Homes! They aim to provide free homes for residents of Second Life, and even some affordable rent options.  You can set your home to here or chill on the dance floor and wander about in the beachy atmosphere.   So just to reiterate, yes…there are FREE homes here that you can live in!  If you want to know more, swing by Caribbean Homes, and join their group to find out more about this lovely little community that aims to give back to SL.

Join their group by copying and pasting this link in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/2b3f464a-9110-b373-8639-bedf20c2b4f8/about

Now, where’s my coconut drink?
