Just another day in paradise

Just another day in paradise

Hello FabFree! I’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, and it’s nice mixing in some lovely freebies so I don’t go completely broke! Well…don’t go completely broke as quickly, rather. But even when I’m purchasing things I typically tend to be a bit of a bargain shopper. Come along, I’ll tell you about the pretty things that I’ve got on!

From Top…

This shirt is a new free group gift from Tachinni and the group is free to join. It hangs really nicely and I love the pretty pink shade. The gift comes in 4 sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya.

…To Bottom…

One can never have too many pairs of cute jeans shorts. These are really nice – plenty short but not “Is she wearing pants or underwear?” short. They are from Amazing Creations, a store which has been blogged her over and over. Becauuuuse there are lots of free group gifts up on the wall and the group is free to join. These shorts come in the white that I’m wearing, black, and blue. All three colors need to be “purchased” separately but they are free group gifts so I’m using the word purchase loosely. They also come with a color change HUD but I can’t seem to make it do anything? Maybe you’re smarter than me and you can figure it out, or maybe lag was just getting the best of me. Regardless, the three colors that they come in are sure to cover all your needs and they come sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy and Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy

…And almost everything else!

I love shopping Fifty Linden Friday and the Saturday Sale. Both events are full of fantastic designers selling beautiful things for 50L and 75L, respectively. They pop up here from time to time but not too often because by the time we’re able to get a picture and a blogpost together the sale is quite often over. This week I got my Glam Affair head applier from FLF and my hair and flip flops from the Saturday Sale. I have no idea what’s available still but if you don’t already shop these sales, then here’s your PSA to keep an eye out for the pretties that will be on offer next week!

It’s Black, It’s White

It's Black, It's White

I had a little fun editing this picture. I usually don’t do much to my pictures here because I want you to be able to see what you’re looking at. But in this case I’m garbed entirely in black and white, so I figured we’re not losing anything. You’ll never guess what color the background was, though!

Monochrome

This fabulous tunic dress is one of the free group gifts at Amazing Creations. It hangs really cute and has a fun, artsy pattern. It comes in 5 classic sizes, XS-XL. The group is free to join and there are bunch of other gifts, including some nice ones for the guys.

Great Heels

You can never have enough pairs of really great heels. Love showed the ones that I’m wearing today already here. In my case, I have an overflowing shoes folder…and then I wander the grid barefoot the vast majority of the time. I really love these N-core shoes. They have a bit of a glitter to them, fur at the heel, and can change to 3 metallic shades. They’re one of the group gifts for to the N-core group. It costs 299L To join the group, but once you see the amazing collection of group gifts available at the store then you’ll understand why! The heels I’m wearing come sized for:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • N-core
  • Slink
  • TMP

Allison is wearing…

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara

Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Eyelashes Applier: Arte My Lashes
Hair: [e] Mel 2
Tattoos:  Liquid Buttercups and Traveler’s Joy

I’m Gonna Take You Surfin’ With Me

See You on the Next Wave

Since Kat hasn’t stopped going on about her relaxing getaway to the beach, I decided it was my turn.  I loaded up my board, and made a quick trip to the surf over at Baja Tides, blasting music by the Beach Boys the whole way.  Luckily, my new shorts had me all set to catch some waves in style.

Celebrate the Start of May Just a Tiny Bit Early

It might still be the end of April, but I came across my first May group gift this morning at Amazing Creations.  With a dark belt, a teal background, and a fun tropical print, these shorts are just right for my surfing safari.  Classic and mesh body versions come side by side in the free gift package, so this summer staple is sure to fit most guys.  The best part about it all?  The Amazing Creations group is completely free to join, so my new look didn’t cost a single Linden dollar.  Now, my board’s a whole other story…

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Let’s go surfing now!  Come on a safari with me…

On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

Down the rabbit hole…

This week I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole, attended a wild tea party and smoked a hookah with a caterpillar. I thought I’d show you some items I found before I get summoned for a round of croquet. I found three gifts at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS  that I’d like to share with you. First off, I found a gift for FitMesh Fanatics to celebrate 15K members.  The Male Shirt is comes in either v-neck or u-neck. The Fitmesh Fanatics group is FREE to join.

Off with his … Clogs?

The other two gifts come bundled in one box and for just 1L. Both the Male Shorts and the Green Male Clogs can be found in the Summer Hunt gift located somewhere in AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS. Any time I can find clogs to wear, I do just to annoy her. She says it is not fashionable to wear them, but I think they are comfy.

Ok, I’m out for a bit. Until next time…

Oh, what a feeling…

In just a few short days I will have the next 2 months and change to myself, answering to nobody and only having to cater to her needs… (uhh …I meant my dog, not sure who you were thinking I was talking about.) The pressure of the past month are slowly slipping into just a memory and I have nothing but sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. And you can also look amazing in the group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This month’s gift is a green striped Men’s Shirt. This shirt comes in the stadard XS-XL sizes plus fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

I paired the shirt with  new items from A&D Clothing. The Patrick Pants and the Nautics Shoes can be purchased individually or in fatpacks. I always choose the fatpacks because like Pokemon, I got to catch them all. Y’all have an amazing day!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:
C&CH2 Pic-Firelight Creations

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Take My Picture

takemypicture1

Hello again Fabfreebers! Do you have an open group slot and are interested in free group gifts? Do you like my dress? If you said yes to both of those, than you need to join the Amazing Creations group. My cute tunic dress is one of many free group gifts you can pick up after joining their group. In this particular gift, you actually get 2 versions of this dress, the one I am showing off, and another with a similar black and white print on it. They are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. As much as I love lots of colour, there is something to be said for a great black and white dress that allows little pops of colour from your accessories, to really shine. The Amazing Creations group is free to join, and there are loads of group gifts, for both men and ladies, as well as several group lucky letter chairs. Just make sure you have your tag on to take advantage of it all.

Until next time, TTFN!
