The Wind at My Back

The Wind at My Back

There’s a cool breeze on the air as summer starts fading here at the end of August and I’m ready for September days… but I plan to enjoy these last warm breezes with some summer dresses. And I’m thrilled with the gifts that I’m finding that are letting me do just that.

A special dress

Meva has out a new group gift dress for us ladies to add to their collection of group gifts in the group gift section. The dress is Maitreya fit only but there are two colors in the package… the cream I am showing you as well as a charcoal color. The group is 100L to join, but currently there are 9 past group gifts you can pick up. So if you are new to Meva, that’s a nice little group of gifts to pick up for your group gift fee.

New hair

I stopped by the Gacha Garden as I got a notice that there are currently 61 free gifts to be had at the event! I went right away to check it out and was thrilled with the loot I came away with. I couldn’t wait to show you my favorites.

I have three just in this post, including this beautiful fatpack of hair called Eevee by Analog Dog. Find the Analog Dog gacha machine and pick up your gift by clicking the little bag. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag, but the group is free to join, making the fatpack of hair an absolutely free gift!

Maya and Teeth

An affair… with skin!

Glam Affair has a free face applier as their gift at the Gacha Garden! I was so excited to see this beautiful applier called “Maya” as their gift! It’s in the American skin tone with lovely freckles and a pretty mouth shade. It’s perfect for that girl next door look but also lovely enough for a glamorous outfit too. And since it too is a Gimme Gacha gift, it’s FREE!

She’s got teeth!

Cae’s gift had me “hooked” from the moment I unpacked it! I love their Sharkteeth necklace and earrings set! The set even includes a color change hud so you can choose between silver, brass, or gold! And like the other Gimme Gacha gifts, it’s free! 😀

Dancing… for Free Hair!

Epsilon

I’m dancing… because I found new free hair at the Freeball on the beach at Analog Dog! If you’re not familiar with the Freeball, just fly up and over the discount area to the beachy area of the sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble and buy it for 0L. Inside is free hair! Each hair contains a hud for lots of color possibilities, and there are three new styles inside to add to the three previous styles that I blogged here.

Free Hair!

This first hairstyle in the picture above is called Epsilon and is a beautiful style with a braid at the crown and long flowing locks of hair. It includes a flexi attachment at the shoulders for a soft effect if you want. I opted not to add those, as I felt the hair was pretty enough without it.

Jenna

Also in the Analog Dog Freeball is the pretty style in the picture above called Jenna. This one also has long flowing locks, but is topped off with a top-knot for a cute look that says “casual days.”

Gabby

I love this last flirty, curly hairstyle called “Gabby” that you will find in the Analog Dog Freeball. It is a one-sided curly updo. It is just plain fun! You’ll want to wear it for punk rock days, fun days, or maybe a contest!

Did you notice my lingerie?

This pretty applier lingerie is by 1 Hundred and you can pick it up free as the exclusive FabFree group member gift at 1 Hundred! Just last Friday, Pru gave us a peek at the 1 Hundred shop in her Designer Friday Showcase here, giving you all kinds of reasons to want to head over and check out the shop. I knew I had to hurry over and pick up this cute lingerie set!

It comes in:

  • System layers
  • Lolas appliers
  • Mirage appliers
  • Delicq appliers
  • Omega appliers

Everything I Wished For

Stargazing

It’s still early enough that the sun’s not quite up where I am and I can still catch a few of the stars that are out before the sunrise melts them away. Was that a falling star?! I made a wish! What will you wish for?

Everything I wished for…

… is at S@BBiA today. I got an amazing free group gift at S@BBiA yesterday and I had to share it with you so you could get it today. I’m not sure how long it will be out, so make sure you hurry! This back bow blouse with beige denim skirt is the current free group gift (the group is free to join) and it is just adorable.

The gift comes in one mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The two pieces are separate and they did include alpha layers, so I believe they would fit a system body very well also. I think they may be a very good quality fitmesh (or perhaps a Maitreya fit). The outfit might fit other bodies very well also and for the grand cost of free, who could pass up trying it out!

I’m going to catch a few more winks at the stars before they disappear completely. Happy stargazing if you go, and happy shopping!

Happy Summer

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  Look no further than the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale if you are in the market for a new swim suit!

For Just 10 Little Lindens…

You can pick up the Sage Poppy Base Set as shown on my avatar that includes the bikini top and bottom as well as the sexy sheer cover-up.  Each piece comes in XS-L mesh sizing so finding a size to fit your avatar with little body alterations shouldn’t be a problem.  The poppy print is just adorable and screamed out to me as my own real life garden poppies have just popped up to say “happy summer”!  Included in the folder is a giant HUD that allows for 20 different colours, allowing you to mix and match all three pieces if you like.

I Can See Clearly Now, The Rain Is Gone

Snapshot_013
Good morning FabFree Readers!

Look All Around, There’s Nothing But Blue Skies!

With the warm weather in my part of the real world teasing that I can trust it’s here to stay for a season or two, I have been starting to bring out little bits of my summer wardrobe in hopes that they still fit the way they should (SOBS).

In Second Life, this is all much easier of course.  Everything always fits from last year, and even if it doesn’t, I can replace it with brand new things…  for free!

Look Straight Ahead, There’s Nothing But Blue Skies (and Seniha)!

A great place to stop is Seniha, to pick up their new free group gift which is the tropical printed Dolche Dress in my favourite colour…  BLUE (because it brings out his eyes)!  This group is free to join.  The panties I am wearing today are not included. They came with my Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and if you happen to have them…  they work great with this design without interfering with the mesh.  It’s a good thing I had them on, because it may be a bright sunshiny day, but it’s breezy!

Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Have a bright, bright sunshiny day and thanks for reading FabFree!!

Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” 😉

But it’s all for a good reason: Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins, Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay! (Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty Tule and Leather Dress from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store: Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ❤

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize.  Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the party (lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!
