English Rose

English Rose

This past summer I spent some time in real world Yorkshire.  It was all about rolling hills and dry stone walls and lots of green (though it was uncommonly hot and dry for the area, and things were just a little crisp!).  They also managed to talk me into trying a Yorkshire pudding the size of a dinner plate, and I’m not entirely sure I’d repeat that experience.  The rest, however, was lovely.  I’m recreating my adventures inworld at the Yorkshire sim, but thankfully no one has tried to feed me massive Yorkshire pudding yet!

The Syndicate is Back!

It’s time for yet another round of Syndicate Sunday!  One of my fave monthly events is happening this week, and you can get lots of pretty things for just 69L each!  I’m showing off some rings I grabbed over at Ama.  They work with Maitreya bento hands and each ring is customizable with a little message you can choose in the HUD.  I went with “love”, but there are a bunch of anti-lovey sentiments to play around with on them too!  The dress I’m wearing is by Anny’s Fashion and is quite a lovely breezy number that has me longing for spring and blooms.  It comes with an HUD to change to several different flower colours and really is quite pretty and ethereal.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP

Hurry though, Syndicate Sunday runs until February 10th!  Make sure you check out their website to see what else is on offer!

Just Waiting Around…

Endless Waiting

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  Ripley and I had quite an adventure last night that involved a check engine light, a tow truck, and an excruciating wait at a garage for a mechanic that moved as slow as molasses in January.  After hours of tapping our toes, we were finally able to get back on the road, but it made for a very long day, indeed.

Leather Jacket

While we remained on stand-by in the brisk November air, I was glad to have my cozy jacket from Mad Cat Crreations to ward off the chill.  With a double layered lapel, rolled back cuffs, and a snug-fitting waist buckle, I was cloaked in comfort.  A gleaming zipper helped to insulate me and seal out the breeze trying to work its way through to my bones.  One thing I really enjoy about this coat is the way it nipped in at the waistline and emphasized my curves.  The best part – this fall essential only cost 1L and a bit of searching time in The Jerky Turkey Hunt.  To pick up one for yourself, teleport over to Mad Cat Crreations and locate the orange feather concealed in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

It’s Time for a Pity Party

Ripley and I had discovered another hunt prize, the Spiked Collar from Ama. that coordinated perfectly with my outfit.  An offering for the Pity Party at the Doll House Hunt, this neck wear comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the rhinestones set into the black leather band.  After searching around the store, the pupster located the hunt object, (a small pink dollhouse).  I paid 10L, then happily scooped up my new bauble.  You can see a close up of it in the image below (along with my face when I received the bill from the mechanic).  Although I enjoy being without a monthly car payment, maybe it’s time to search for a new vehicle…

And then You Get the Bill

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Spring Liaison

Happy Friday, FabFree-ers!

Spring Liaison

I hope you’re gearing up for a great weekend here on the Grid. There’s a ton of sales and fairs and Hunts and events…. too many to list it seems. I discovered a new to me event -> The Liaison Collaborative. I say new to me because this is actually the third year for this event. In celebration of the birthday, many of the designers have placed out gifts for us. Most are free and a few are 1L.

I picked up my gorgeous new hair from Mina as a free gift. This is ‘Esmee’ and it comes with a HUD for five ombre colors. There are also two ‘chest size’ versions in the gift.

My dress is also a free gift from United Colors for the Liaison Collaborative. This is ‘Moly’ in sky blue. Now, technically this lovely dress is only for Maitreya Laura, Belleza Freya and Isis and SLink Natural and Hourglass. I have it on my classic system body and with a little tweaking it does fine. The dress features beautifully done lace front and back panels and a leather texture.

Spring Liaison

I added a splash of bold color with my free ‘Red Rose’ ring from Ama. The ring comes in both a gold and silver band version and for both hands.

Last, but certainly not least, my pose. oOo Studio has given us another free Birthday Gift. This is one of the five poses in the “Quirky” pose pack.  oOo Studio has done it again with five creative poses that are smooth and incredibly well built. No clipping or weird lumps to be found.

The Liaison Collaborative runs until March 30th. And here’s your taxi now!

Be Incredible

Work Hard Do Good

Hello Fab Free! I’ve had a busy few days but I’m back and I’m excited to share some great group gifts I stumbled across today. I love it when you can pick up gifts at events, and Cosmopolitan Sales Room always has gifts each round. This round, the gifts were just my taste which doesn’t always happen! In addition to the gifts at Cosmo Sales Room, Entice has recently put out a new group gift and as always it’s beautiful.

This pretty inspirational wall art from Ama is one of the group gifts at Cosmo Sales Room. I love decorating in Second Life, especially when I can pick up well-made beautiful pieces like this one for FREE. The canvas reads “Work Hard, Do Good, Be Incredible” which is sweet and direct, which makes me like it even more. I’ll be leaving this one up at my house for sure. Everyone can benefit from a little inspiration, I know I can!

Also at Cosmo Sales Room as a FREE group gift is this fun quirky necklace from Tantalum. The Ouija board necklace comes in both a female and a male version and can be re-sized by clicking the necklace. Once again, this gift is exactly my taste, a little playful and maybe a little sinister. If you like it too, better hurry, there are just a few days left of this round of Cosmo Sales Room. To get these gifts simply join the FREE Cosmopolitan Sales Room group and click the gift vendors while wearing your tag.

Finally, this saucy low-cut dress is the current group gift at Entice. I like that this dress is simple yet elegant in style, and could be easily dressed up or down, and I think it would even look cute with leggings or pants. Also this FREE group gift comes with a texture change hud. I really like this “Love” pattern, with Valentines Day just around the corner Love is certainly the theme of the moment. I included a copy of the vendor photo for this great dress from Entice below so you can see the additional textures included. To get this dress join the FREE Entice group and pay the vendor 1 linden while wearing your tag. You will then be instantly repaid the 1 linden.

Bundled In Blue

Snapshot_005

Brrr.. It’s chilly here in Canada today, but that’s not stopping me from enjoying the holiday season!  I’ll just bundle myself up in some cute winter gear, and head out!

As you can see I’m doing the same thing inworld 😉  Today I am wearing The Shirley Winter Edition Coat by Sage that is available on the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L.   The Wash Cart Sale actually begins tomorrow (December 16th), but Sage is all set up and ready for sale if you’d like to visit early and avoid the crowds!  This cute coat is an adorable shade of baby blue with a snowflake print.

I have paired this up with the Ama Glitter Leggings in Snow Day which I picked up as a free advent gift today (day 3).  These leggings will work with system bodies and include several appliers for mesh bodies as well.  No need to join the group – just TP over to Ama and open the door 🙂

This outfit wouldn’t be complete without a scarf and Clawtooth had just the thing!  This hairstyle called Valerie comes with the texture change head scarf and is available at the Arcade Gacha for 75L per play.

Stay warm, Fabbies!
