Essentially Cool

Essentially Cool

When one is too cool for school, one must wear one’s too cool for school duds with some flair, you know.  I am leaning ever so nonchalantly on this here desk because obviously I am that person who is too cool for school.  Just suspend your disbelief for one minute, we all know I’m actually a giant nerd, but let’s just roll with it today, yes?

We’ve Got Cookies

So over at The Dark Side event, there are all sorts of awesome little 10L gifts you can grab!  There are a whole bunch of great ones to choose from, but I really liked the patches on this little mini dress by MoOh!   I may have a weakness for all things with patches and pins so this sure was the dress for me.  It comes with an HUD with six different colour options, including a few nice jean ones.   Grab yours by visiting the MOoH!  kiosk at The Dark Side!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

Top it Off

To top off my look, I made my way over to Amiable.  They’ve got a whole bunch of group gifts out (some of which have been shown here on Fab Free by Juli in the past, HERE and HERE), and there I found this cute little hairdo that comes in a whole bunch of natural shades (I like a blunt bob!) and also the little hair bow that tops off my look quite perfectly.  You can grab these two group gifts by joining the Amiable group for free!  There are lots of other lovely little gifts there too!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go continue being extremely cool.

Looking for Winter

Looking for Winter

As much as I’d like to pretend we get real winter weather here in Texas… we don’t. I have a real life closet full of cute winter boots and coats that get no love. If I want snow… I have to get on the grid!

Fuzzy Elegance

It seems like an oxymoron, but this fantastic hat, coat and boots set is just that. Fuzzy and elegant. This is the ‘Fur Pocket Winter Coat’ set and it is one of the In-Store gachas at Amiable’s main store. You get the coat, the boots, the great fuzzy hat AND the sweater all for 65L per play. I was lucky enough to pull one of the two rares and got the cream colored coats and a HUD for the sweater with eight color choices. Amiable has a ton of gacha machines in store right next to the ton of past Group Gifts, all ready for us bargain hunters!

Sizes Included

  • One size Fit Mesh (I had no problems fitting it to Maitreya at all)

Perfect Fall Day

Perfect Fall Day

Hey there, FabFree-ers. I hope you’re having a perfect Fall day too!  Well, to be honest, it’s still really cold and rainy here in the RL but that why you gotta love SL, right?

Perfectly Comfortable and Pretty, Too!

Don’t you love this top and culottes outfit? I found a fantastic new-to-me designer yesterday in my wanders. (Yes, I’m still looking for Gabriel, that slacker!) This is the Angola Knit Tunic from Amiable and it’s the Halloween Gift for the Group. The tunic comes in a soft buttery yellow as well as the sweet pumpkin orange. And you get both in the gift! And here’s the kicker… the Group is FREE to join.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena

She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

computer1

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

computer2

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

computer3

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

Boxing Day dog walking

winterwalk1B

Hello again! It’s Boxing Day here in Canada, as well as in a few other countries. What that means for us, big sales! It’s kind of like Black Friday for Americans. While neither of the items I’m going to show off today were for Boxing Day, 1 is a great sale price, and the other is a Black Friday gift that’s still available. So it’s kinda like Boxing Day shopping 🙂

winterwalk3

While I did obviously make it into SL for a little while yesterday, I did not have enough time to run around and take a look at any of the Fifty Linden Friday items that were available. However, today I started looking through notices, and saw what Ingenue had put out for their FLF sale item. I had to run over and see if it was still up. Yay for me, it was! So, fair warning…I do not know how long you will be able to get these fabulous Lydia D. Booties in the Frosty Morning colouring, for the L$50 sale price. They are meant for the medium height feet for SLink, which I am wearing, Belleza, and Maitreya. I really do love the aqua colour of these, and they conveniently matched my new sweater I’d only just picked up at Uber, from Blueberry (I seriously got the sweater first, and then saw the boots. I love when it works out like that!). I’ll cross my fingers for you all that they stay out at this price for quite a while.

winterwalk2

I love a warm, cozy scarf. Heck, even my new Husky friend has one! It was great for me then, when I headed over to amiable to pick up their Christmas gift (which I may show off soon in another post) that I found this great texture change scarf as their Black Friday gift, free for group members. I know, Black Friday is well over, but amiable always leaves their gifts out, so those of you who may have missed when they came out, like I did with this scarf, can still grab them later! All you need to do to get it, is join their free group, if you aren’t already in it, and while wearing your tag, click on the picture. You get 2 versions of this scarf in the box, one rigged mesh version, and an unrigged version. Both are texture change with a hud, and I also found, that the unrigged version is actually mod, so you can choose the white texture on the hud, and then tint it as needed in edit. That’s what I did, picking this lovely darker aqua colour to match my outfit.

OK, I think my pup is ready to head back inside now, and I think I am ready myself. As pretty as the snow is, and as warm and cozy as I am in my boots and scarf, I have a fire waiting for me, and probably a cup of hot cocoa. So, until next time, TTFN!

Falling into Spring…or Springing into Fall

Happy Wednesday everyone! I’ve noticed that I haven’t really done a Fall type post yet, and even though it is almost half way through November already (OMG, right!), it is still very much Fall in my area, with only the smallest hint of snow so far. So I thought I’d play along with the weather, and do a cozy Fall, not Winter, post, and for fun, throw in Spring. Are you confused yet? LOL.

springyfall1OK, let me explain. Traditionally, sweaters are Fall territory, I think we all can agree there. However, the colours of Fall tend to be warm colours, darker, rich, cozy colours. As you can see in my picture, although my surroundings are screaming Autumn, the pretty  pastel colours of my outfit, are more inclined to say Spring. Skirts also tend to be seen more in Spring and Summer, although not exclusively, and when I got dressed, I couldn’t decide what season I was best suited for.  But, I guess I should just stop rambling and go ahead and tell you where to get this multi-seasonal look eh? LOL. The sweet pink sweater I have on, is the latest group gift from Amiable. I can’t get enough of the lips cutout, such a fun detail. Put out in celebration of the group hitting 1700 members, it is free with your group tag on. Even better, that group is free to join. My skirt is an older group gift from Amiable that is still available, and you might recognize it, kinda, as Love showed it originally HERE, in its darker blue version. It comes with a hud for you to be able to choose between the 2 colours. Both sweater and skirt are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. Make sure you grab all the other group gifts that are still available. springyfall2

I love an easy, slightly messy, updo, with the loose wispy bits making me think of a spring breeze, working perfectly with my Spring in Fall look. Lucky for me, and for all of you, the one I am wearing is from a new to me store called Bold & Beauty, and it is a free group gift! Avery comes in a full fatpack, with every colour you could possibly wish for, and is unrigged mesh, to allow for editing if you need to. The group is free to join, all you need to do is have your tag on to pick up your gift. There is a second hair gift for you, as well as a few clothing items, all free with the group tag.

springyfall3

So..am I reaching with this Fall Spring look? LOL. Honestly, I do not choose clothing based on the season, I’m one of those crazies who wears whatever ever they want, whenever, and no colour is off-limits. Clothing is about expressing yourself, and as Spring and Fall are my favourite seasons, this expresses me perfectly 🙂

Alrighty, I must be off for now. I won’t be gone long though, as I already have some great stuff set up for another post soon. So, until then, TTFN!

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

garden1

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

garden3

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do 😉 . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

garden2

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality 🙂 .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

Good evening Fabulouses!  Tonight I bring you some amiable news 🙂

This gift is the adorable top/sweater combo you see me wearing that would match up with so many different bottom options.  I picked up the Mixtulle skirt found at the {amiable} shop, but you could pair it up with jeans, or shorts or whatever.
