Among the Wildflowers

Happy 14!

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate Second Life’s 14th birthday by visiting the Community Celebration, which runs through June 26th.  At the shopping event, there are free gifts and exclusive offers from 60 designers, spread out across 3 regions. The pupster and I scooped up a couple of sweet gifts to share with you.

Life is Short – Buy the Dress…

especially if it is set for sale for zero lindens!  This adorable Autumn Cami Dress is yours for free at the SL14B celebration.  Simply swing by the Aphorism shop, and click the gift box at the front display.  This sleeveless mini features a rich burgandy background sprinkled with a delicate floral pattern.  Its slender fit and narrow piping will draw the eye to all the right places.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

A Journey of a Thousand Miles…

begins with a fabulous pair of shoes.  Over at the KC Couture booth, you can pick up the free, extremely versatile Hedy heels, which come complete with a HUD packed with 40 textures, plus 5 metal options.  You can customize 6 parts of these shoes individually, or the entire shoe globally.  With so many options, they will coordinate beautifully with just about any outfit in your SL wardrobe.   Designed to fit Belleza, Eve, Maitreya, Mesh Project, and Slink High feet, these gorgeous heels are sure to become “go to” summer footwear for me.

These are just a couple of the many free gifts generous designers have set out for you at the birthday gala shopping event.  With so many booths to visit, Ripley and I had better get a move on!  We only have until June 26th, and don’t want to miss out on any of the fabulous deals.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Date With Destiny

WellmadeAphorism
Hey there FabFree Readers!  I am just taking some time to myself to enjoy some oldie but goodies on vinyl.  It makes me so sad to think back about when I was a kid and used to make roads out of the records lined up on the ground for my little brother to drive his trucks on.  So many a scratched record happened, and many albums didn’t survive but there are some good memories attached to playing trucks with my brother…. and yes..  there were Barbies in those trucks.  It was the only way I would play!

Rompers are all the rage!

If you haven’t noticed on the feeds already…  rompers are a big deal this season and I was glad to have come by this poppy printed jumpsuit as a free group gift at [Wellmade].  The Destiny Jumpsuit also includes a texture change HUD that allows for a pastel floral print as well.  This group is free to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up!

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

On The Fringe

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses! The Springtacious Cart Sale continues for one more week and we are still finding so many wonderful 10L finds to share with you here on the FabFree Blog! Today I put together a casual boho outfit to show off a couple things from the Loordes of London Cart I think you might like.

Both for 10L!

The Loordes of London “On The Fringe” Outfit including the shirt/sweater combo and the jeans are available in a few different colours for just 10L a set!  I actually couldn’t believe my own eyes when I saw the display.  I clicked on the top, bought the top and then clicked on the jeans and bought the jeans… but what I really did was buy the whole set twice because you get both pieces for 10L and it’s all one long vendor! lol.  Silly me.  I should pay closer attention…

Sizes included:

  • Top & Jeans – XXS-L mesh + alpha layer
  • Top – Slink Physique
  • Top – Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Shine It up

You can also pick up The Lunar Eclipse Sunglasses at the same display for 10L each in a couple of different colours if you want to shine your look up a touch.

Top Notch

SnatchorismHey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🙂  I am popping in real quick to share news with you about another Sn@tch freebie that I thought was a great basic addition to my inventory.

The Royal Rococo Bodysuit is available in the Cheap & Free section at Sn@tch (just inside the entrance doors to the right.), priced at…  you guessed it – 0L!  This bodysuit comes in 8 different colours and includes the mesh sleeves which you can wear, or leave off if you like.  As this is an applier (Slink & Omega compatible)/system layer design, it’s fantastic for layering under jackets or sweaters.  The colours are vibrant, and the texturing, top-notch!

Get Your Goose!

GooseGG

Hi there FabFree!  Today I am switching it up a little bit and have decided to show you some cool outdoor décor rather than an outfit.

I came across this awesome, and very big Broken Wall at the landing point at GOOSE, set out as a free group gift.   It has a land impact of just 5 which is very low for such a large item and it comes with the couple/solo animated pillows too.  This gift can be all yours with a 50L group join fee.

Have a peek around at the landing point, there are a few group gifts set to other groups that are free to join too!

Off Like A Bolt Of Lightening

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulous Readers! After a long work day, I returned home to a very anxious pup needing a walk, so off we went!  Like they say – no rest for the wicked.

A Leisurely Evening Walk With Lightening

Things on our walk were going along quite nicely, which was a relief because sometimes Lightening (yes, that’s his name) is just a beast to control when something suits his fancy… like running rabbits, or teasing cats to chase.  The weather was calm, and the sun kept us warm.  We leisurely strolled along the path and I was just thinking how relaxing this walk really was when the pleasant aroma of rich chocolate and marshmallows began to fill the air.   I really should have known better than to close my eyes, and inhale the delicious attack on my senses, because mid sniff…  he also caught a wiff, and was OFF like…  well the bolt of lightening he is –  dragging the leash behind him.

The 100 Meter Dash

I finally did catch up with him at the hot cocoa stand that smelled way too good for either of us to pass up.   I wasn’t about to risk breaking a heel running in my brand new Molly Boots that I had just picked up at Kustom9 over the weekend, and really there was no question where he was going.   I am not sure who smelled it first, me or him, but we were both happy to take a little break.  Now of course…  he can’t have cocoa, but he was happy for his very own fresh cup of water after that 100  meter dash he had just done.

About The Free Stuff

I was thankful I was in a cozy sweater dress because our walk did indeed take a little longer than expected.  I found this adorable light pink dress called Natisa at Nala Designs as a free group gift for the Avangardista Group which is free to join.  Available in the following sizes, I’m sure whatever size you are, you’ll find a good fit:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL w/ alpha layer
  • Fitted Mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Snapshot_003

Hi there Fabulous Readers! I just don’t even believe it… I have barely gotten over the excitement about the first TRUTH Hair group gift that came out a couple weeks back (First shown [HERE] by Kathryn and is still available for pick up instore), and now in celebration of 4500 group members, Truth Hawks has sent out another fatpack of hair in the notices!  This group is 265L to join, but currently you can pick up both gifts in full fatpacks… so that’s a killer deal in my opinion!

Sugar is her name…

Sugar is her name, and a loose top bun updo with a variety of bang and whispy attachments is her game!  The versatility of these short/long whisps will be especially handy in this sweater/jacket/scart season so that you can find the right pieces that don’t interfere with your outfit!

Where to find it:

According to the Truth Customer Service Rep, Padma Scorpio… “Gifts will expire in notices after 14 days and then will be available in the main store for a total duration of 1 month after which they will no longer be available.” (this message was found in group notices as well)

Side note about the pose used:

I have used Raindale ‘s Tree Swing Spring Gift Pose that you can pick up for 1L at the Raindale shop!  No need to join a group – just go grab it for a linden ;).  It comes with a few different natural swing sitting poses, adjustment and swing option.
