Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

Here’s a quick post to show you two of the group gifts available at a men’s shop I recently discovered.  Bravura Homme has a variety of mesh casual and business wear available at reasonable prices, making it a great place to find wardrobe essentials.  The other good news about Bravura Homme is that the group is free to join and there are generally group gifts from the current and past two months available in the store at any one time.
Bravura - March GG
This first is Bravura Homme’s March group gift, the mesh Paranoia tee shirt and baggy pants which are perfect for stay at home days where you just need something comfortable to hang around in.  If you’d like to add some color to your wardrobe then you should go for the April group gift, the Ice Rose Dress Shirt in camel paired with sand-colored chinos.  A basic pair of tan chinos is a must-have in any man’s wardrobe, and good mesh ones like these normally sell for quite a bit.

Bravura - April GG

The unisex black leather sneakers I’m wearing in these pictures are just one of the many inexpensively priced shoes you can get from FabFree Designer Duh!.  The men’s department is up on the second floor, and you can get almost any kind of shoe you want from sandals to boots to dress shoes for $25L or less.  A package of these sneakers contains pairs in both black and white, and is a steal at just $10L.

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – OUT OF AFRICA

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – OUT OF AFRICA…

A friend of mine teleported me over to Artizana Ethnic Couture’s mainstore recently because a couple of of the group Lucky Boards had some interesting men’s prizes on them.  Within a short amount of time (the boards change letters every 5 minutes) I got myself a couple of great outfits.  Artizana specializes in brightly colored African- and Carribean-style clothing for women, but has a small line of men’s clothing as well.  There are eight lucky boards (six of which currently have women’s clothing) and two MM boards, but you have to join the group to win from any of the boards.

Artizana Lucky Boards

One of the men’s Lucky Board prizes at Artizana is the mesh Nidolo XIII vested outfit in brown and tan which is a bit of a departure from Artizana’s usual ethnic specialty.  Nidolo can also be purchased like the single-colored one in this picture in any of several color schemes, and consists of a shirt, vest, and pants as three separate pieces so that you can mix and match the pieces with other things in your wardrobe.  You can also purchase either the “classic” or the “exotic” versions of the Nidolo Collection which gets you a mix and match texture change HUD giving you 16 options for the vest and pants and 20 options for the shirt and tie.  I took this picture outside the Artizana mainstore to show you the lovely garden there full of exotic flowers in case you’re looking for a good place to take some pictures for this month’s FabFree “May Flowers” photo challenge.

The picture on the right is the other Artizana men’s Lucky Board prize, the mesh Lakana II Bogolan Dashiki with matching pants and kufi cap.  Dashikis are amazingly comfortable and cool to wear during hot weather so I went over to the visually stunning KwaZulu Natal African region to take this picture.  While I was walking around looking for a place to take the picture I happened upon this little herd of elephants splashing in a pool of water.  If it looks like I’m glancing nervously to the side in this picture it’s because this cute little elephant’s mother was just off camera to the side trying to swat me away with her trunk.

Clear A Couple of Group Spaces, Ladies!

Snapshot_002Hey fabulouses!  SL is very finicky for me tonight, and I was afraid to snap pictures, but managed to get a couple shots with minimal crashing!  The vibrant colors of my outfit today inspired me to visit the Metropolis Sim, which is a very well put together cityscape, perfect for hanging out, meeting people – or like I did today…  photography!  Some people dress for the day ahead, but in SL my day is determined by the way I dress lol 🙂

I am wearing the latest free group gift at Prism called Chelsea by Journey – Batik.  This gift includes the capris and matching mesh top in several sizes, as well as lola tango appliers for those partaking in the meshy bewbage.  The Prism inworld group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts available.  Most of them have been shown right here on FabFree, and you can find them by typing “Prism” into the search button at the top of the blog if you’d like a preview before heading over to the store.
Snapshot_004

Group members of Amacci have a very special treat to pick up at the Amacci Mainstore too.  Once you join the free inworld group you are eligible to pick up the Tyne Skin – Cherry as a free gift .   I am wearing Tyne today, and I quite like this skin – but you’ll have to excuse my “meat hands” as Serena calls them!  I don’t have the slink appliers to match this skin yet lol.  I have been wearing my slink hands so much, that I feel naked without them!  Inside the group gift you will find the skin in the cream skin tone (which I am displaying), and also in nutmeg which is a bit darker, as well as several cleavage option tattoos.

While you are at Amacci picking up this group gift, make sure you hit up the subscribomatic too.  When you join the subscribomatic updates you receive a free pack of eight sets of eyes.  I am wearing the Infinity Brown Image Big Eyes from the pack 😉  There are also several free gifts priced at 0L (no need to be in the group) set out in their FREEBIES area, and an OUTLET room too where you can find a ton of older very inexpensive items.

See you back here soon, Fabulouses! xox

Hunting eggs in Sascha’s Designs, NSP Florals and Amacci Hair!

Have I mentioned that Easter is one of my favorites Holidays?  It is a Holiday that celebrates rebirth…flowers popping up…color coming back after a long grey winter.  I love all the wonderful colors that herald Easter activities…but my all time favorite color is PINK!  When I saw that the gorgeous pink Aliana gown, from Sascha’s Designs, was up for grabs as part of the Zuri’s Jewel Isle 2014 Easter Egg Hunt…I HAD to have it!  All you need to do is find the little egg and pay only 5L…and this fabulous dress is yours…just in time for all those wonderful Easter celebrations!
B!asta_0071

While I was looking for the Sascha’s Designs gown, I also found this fabulous Easter in Bloom Hat from NSP Florals…find the egg and pay only 1L!  I also found the egg at *Amacci* and, this time, I was rewarded with the Rosie Hair (Wheat Blond)…completely FREE…just right click the egg and it is 0L!  There are several more stores participating in the Zuri’s Jewel Isle 2014 Easter Egg Hunt and the eggs have varying prices, set by the individual designers participating.  Hurry because this hunt will end on April 21st!!

Happy hunting and stay Fabulously Free!

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!

Hey fabbies! The spring market fair at old europe started recently, and there are a ton of wonderful designers showcasing their spring-themed products at the event. In addition to the abundance of springy goods, most of the designers have out a special free gift hidden somewhere on the sim in a little umbrella! I’ve chosen a few of my favourites to show you, but there are a TON more gifts to be found (NOTE: Hunt related LM’s in this post will lead you to the EVENT, not the designers main store location because the hunt is SIM-WIDE, not grid-wide!).

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!_001

Morea style has out this lovely soft cream coloured dress as their gift. I didn’t want to take this off, it’s so floaty and light, and would be perfect for a picnic or a day at the beach!

Bailey’s gift is this high-waisted shorts and black top combo, which includes appliers for lolas tangos!

If you’re looking for accessories instead of clothes, then you should grab the necklace from Goddess fantasies and the eyes from Amacci. The necklace is resize scripted, and the eyes come in 3 system layer sizes, 2 types (regular and dark) AND pair of mesh eyes!

 

Have fun shopping, hunting, and be sure to stay fabulous!

Waving My Magic Wand

Snapshot_005

Hmmm…  What ever am I going to do with this magic wand?  I suppose a wish for peace on earth would be a good one, but unlimited chocolate and a teleport machine are a close second and third wish on my list.  I guess if I was really clever I would wish for unlimited wishes, but it’s usually against the rules in fairytales…  I am curious… what would YOU wish for?

I am displaying for you, the Peace On Earth Hunt prize from Bubblez Design (for women – there is a men’s gift too!).  Their Angel Outfit includes the dress, necklace, sparkle wings and…  the magic wand :).  You simply need to locate the hidden globe icon at the Bubblez Design mainstore, and you can start making wishes of your own!

PXLCreationsMia
The skin I am in today is PXL Creation’s brand new release called Mia!  Mia is being debuted at the Black Label Event today in three skin tones and three makeup styles.  These gorgeous skins will be available at the PXL Creations mainstore  very soon too.  I can hardly wait for the full release!
