FabFree: I was standing, You were there (2 of 2 - Picture)

Hey there Fabulouses! In my blog post today I am featuring a brand new lucky board prize at Apple May Designs!  You’ll need to be a member of the AMD inworld group to participate in this lucky board offer, but the group fee is only 25L making it very affordable… and hey – it’s just once right?  Then you can take part in future lucky board prizes too!

About the AMD lucky board update

There are actually two group lucky boards at Apple May Designs on one, you can find the Seasons Sweater Dress you see me wearing in my blog post in a dark pack which contains four colours (red, black teal and purple) and on the other board is the lighter four pack of pastel shades.  This plaid little cutie is fitted for Maitreya and is rigged beautifully for movement…  as you can see from the video below!

About the video

It’s rare that I like a remake of a song better than the original, but I heard Paloma Faith do a cover of the old INXS Never Tear Us Apart song on The Umbrella Academy and I have had it on replay ever since!  I was inspired to do a little video to show off the new Julia bento dance animations at Move! Animations which is the full line of the dollarbie Julia dance I showed you on FabFree [HERE] and it’s still available for 1L instore btw!

Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

P.S. Like the wings? They are simple yet beautiful mesh individual wings by Corvus that you can pick up on the Marketplace for just 45 linden. They also come in white!

The Art of Avoiding RL Grocery Shopping

Flowers and Lace

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post while I put off RL grocery shopping to share a couple of budget friendly finds I picked up over at The Cart Sale at The Wash.  I think the pretty floral mini shorts and the warm weather lacy top really work well together.  The best part?  I only spent a grand total of 20L to put together this fun, casual look.  If only my RL grocery bill was that small!  With two kids, three cats, and two hungry German Shepherds, that is just a fantasy though…

Sweet Yet Sassy

To create my Sunday afternoon look, I visited two of the vendor displays at The Wash.  First, at the Kuid Clothing cart, the Wings Shorts caught my attention with their pink and green floral pattern scattered across a frayed white denim fabric.  With four pockets for stashing the every day essentials, a buttoned closure, and an eye-catching pointed hemline in the back, these mini shorts hugged my curves beautifully.  This design fits many of the popular mesh body styles, and is priced at just 10 Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

To Top It All Off

The feminine print on my shorts called for a frilly, girly top, and I found just what I was looking for at the Baci Shop display.  The 10 Linden Badalado Top features an off-the-shoulder, cropped design, generous ruffles and a pretty swirled lace texture.  I opted to go with the white version, but with the 80 color HUD that is tucked inside the package, I can change hues to my heart’s content.  I really like the soft, romantic look created by the layered lace, and could see pairing this shirt with skirts or longer pants as well as the Wings Shorts.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  •  Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Ripley and I discovered quite a few bargains at The Wash, and will return soon with another post.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Big City Raised; Living Wild and Country

Hello, Fabulous Readers!

I hope everyone’s weekend is going well, I know mine is! I am going to have a relaxing weekend at home, for once. I had to have a tooth pulled yesterday that broke off while waiting to be filled, after a root canal back in March. I am on a “no chewing food diet” for the next week, which sucks, but hey I get pampered so, it’s a trade. Lots of pudding, jello and mashed potatoes, here I come!

So, here I am browsing Flickr and I see Apple May Designs as a new Free Group Gift, I had to go grab it! The gift is free to group members on Lucky Letter Boards or group members can pay $49L for the dresses. The gift consists of two packs of two dresses. One pack consists of an ivy pattern with the colors pink and violet. The second pack includes a polka dot pattern in teal and purple. The Apple May Designs in-world group is $25L to join, just be sure to wear your tag, while collecting from the Lucky Letter Boards or purchasing the gifts, if you do not wish to wait. This country girl dress is absolutely fun and adorable!

Fifty Linden Friday Finds for Guys!

Watch Out

“Hey, Serena? I’ve been calling you all morning. Where are you? I thought you wanted me to bring you some lunch today? Oh well, call me.”

Awww, poor Gavin. I forgot to tell him that I was feeling better and decided to take Fergus out for a ride this morning, lol! 😳

FLF for Guys

But everything worked out since Gavin was able to do a little Fifty Linden Friday shopping!

Starting at the top: Gavin scored with some great hair from Wasabi. The Marcus hair comes in a special pack of 7 colors, with and without roots. The hair is resizeable and even comes with a smaller version for the ladies.

Gavin’s sweater is a FLF deal from Etham. The Julian Turtleneck comes in blue or gray and is sized for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

There are some really nice Fifty Linden Friday finds out for the fellas today, so be sure to grab them before midnight SLT tonight!

Free Jeans

Gavin also managed to find a pair of free jeans! The Worn Denim Jeans by Apple May Designs are a free gift at The Free Dove.

The jeans come in sizes XS-L with an alpha layer, but they work fine on Gavin’s Slink mesh body.

There is also a version for the ladies in the box!

Guess I’d better give Gavin a call so he can bring me some dinner. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Fries With That Shake

LuckyAMD
Hey there Fabulous Readers!

Have you seen the new group lucky board prizes at Apple May Designs?

The Apple May Designs inworld group is 25L and once you activate your tag you can participate in the two lucky boards just inside the doors at AMD.  Recently, the Ribbon & Kalani Outfits were loaded into the boards in a black pinstripe version and a pink pinstripe version.  This set includes the tiny ribbon top and belted pants as well as a texture change HUD that allows you to change the belt colour!

Dat Azz

I love the way the pants are designed, cinching at the waist and not only looking so cute from the front with the bow belt, but offering the most amazing from behind view that draws plenty of attention.  Disclaimer:  If you are one that wants your partner to look longingly into your eyes, you might want to re-think your pants choice, because they will just be wanting fries with that shake the whole time you are in them.

(AMD) Group Gift

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara

  • Belleza Freya & Isis

If you just can’t wait for your lucky letter to come up, you can purchase both of these colour sets for 49L each above the boards :).

Pre-Emptive Strike

Pre-Emptive Strike

The holidays are creeping up, and you know what that means…a lot of scrumptious food is on the way!  If I want to eat all the deliciousness, then there’s only one thing to do – work it out!

Hot Top

To avoid getting all gross while I run, I found this top that will do the trick to keep me feeling cool!  The Sanie top from Scandalize is a group gift and comes in a fatpack of colours.  I used it as a workout top, but it could be used for a whole bunch of different looks!  The Scandalize group is 100L to join, and if you’ve been following any of Love’s posts for the last while, you’ll know there are loads of free gifts to be had at Scandalize.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Leggings for Days

Perfect for a good workout session, the Acid Wash pants from Apple May Designs give a well-needed dose of style and function.  I found the leggings on the lucky boards, and with a bit of time and patience, finally they were mine! There is a pink version included as well, so try your luck and they can also be yours!  The Apple May Designs group has a join fee of 25L, and there is a group gift up on the wall you can snap up at the same time.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Well…off I go! Can you keep up?

Lavender Key of Time

Lucky Lavender
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Lucky Lavender

This gift at Apple May Designs is extra awesome because you don’t have to join the group to get it. Non group members can pick up this adorable polka-dotted two piece Shae set in either pink or lavender for just 49 lindens per color. If you are already an Apple May Designs group member, or you wanna join (there is a one time fee of 25 lindens) you can get one or both of the Shae sets for FREE by participating in the group only Lucky Letter boards. There is also at least 1 previous group gift still available. Even though you can’t see it in this photo, there’s an enormous bow in the back that just adds to the charm of this set. It’s like retro lingerie meets Disney princess and I love it!

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza Isis & Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Tattoo Time

Up next, how pretty is this very feminine under-bust tattoo by Moon Tattoo?! I love all the delicate lines. You can pick up this tattoo for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. I guess 49 lindens must be a theme for this post! The inexpensive tattoo comes in an omega applier and includes a classic system tattoo layer.

 

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve got a couple of group gifts I’ve been dying to share with you. Technically one is a Lucky Letter board prize, but we will get into that in a moment. I don’t know about you, but I am of the personal opinion that sometimes being blonde is more fun.

QTPIE

Whether you’re in agreement about blonde hair or would rather have any other color, you’re in luck because this super cute hairstyle is a current fat-pack group gift from Love. That’s right, you get all the color huds the Love brand offers.  The Love main location is temporarily under construction, though the owner/designer says it shouldn’t be under construction for much longer. The good news is this FREE group gift is available in the group notices. The Love group is also FREE to join. Once you’ve joined the group (I was able to find it by searching “Love Hair”) you can pull up the past notices and snag your gift. Oh, and before I forget, this style called “QTPIE” can be worn with or without the long strands, and there is a rigged and non-rigged mesh version for easy resizing if needed.

Lucky in Silver

As I mentioned, the second group gift featured in this post is a Lucky Letter board prize for group members only. Right now Apple May Designs has this gorgeous silver bikini/lounge wear/whatever adorable thing as a FREE Lucky Letter board prize for all AMD group members. The Apple May Designs group is just 25 lindens to join at this time. There’s also a second Lucky Letter board with this same gorgeous gift in gold. I’m still stalking that one! This mesh set comes in several sizes, and is every bit as pretty as it looks. Don’t forget, you will need an AMD tag to participate with these group only Lucky Letter boards. Good Luck, and may the letters or numbers be ever in your favor!
