Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Royals

Fabfree Post: Royal

You can call me queen bee

I know, I laughed a little writing that too just let me live that fantasy for a moment. I have to admit I have been watching Reign on Netflix lately to pass my time and I must say that I do believe my birth was in the wrong era! I’m currently on the 3rd season episode 7 and I just cried my little heart out. No spoilers.

 

Speaking of Queen Bee! FOXCITY has a new free group gift out for you lovely fans. This panel backdrop features some very beautiful marble, gold, and *my favorite* emerald.  It has material patterns enabled along with some floor spotlights that showcase the wall.

The group is L$650 to join, with a wall of past gifts the cost is completely made back.

Got Milk?

FabFree Post: Got Milk

Milk it does a body good!

Pink Cream Pie & Milk, what more can a girl ask for? That sounds like an amazing dream to me!! Adventuring out I saw this adorable Tex Mex Swimsuit marked as their group gift and needed to snag it! I also stalked the shop for a bit and stumbled upon a Group Mystery Gift Giver, so naturally, I clicked it (I like buttons!!) and was gifted a L$250 Gift Card to Pink Cream Pie. Now, I must say its a random item giver so there is no way to say what it is you will get, but oh man this was the coolest thing I’ve seen lately.

Fits

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

With my new swimsuit group gift & my gift card in hand, I skipped home happily to plan out what to do with it. So I took an adventure over to the Cruel Summer Hunt, which Aline posted HERE which is totally tubularly 80s themed gear and deco. I knew that the backdrop you see here by The Bearded Guy was needed and I had no other option but to make it mine. So I put on my hunting boots and got out there to find a sexy 80’s Miami Vice type setup. My jaw hit the floor and I started scanning around for the hunt items on my to get list.

Hello Fab Free, I hope all of you whom experience changing the clocks back are surviving the adjustment. It can be wild how much difference just one hour makes. As for me, I found myself indulging in the latest group gift at MINIMAL, and enjoying the furniture and décor set Petite Mort has at Gacha Garden. Retail therapy really can help, even with the grogginess of a post time change haze. That’s my story anyway. Keep reading for all the “wheres” and “hows” or scroll to the end for the full credits. Thanks Fab Free’rs!

MINIMAL 

I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with this new group gift backdrop by MINIMAL. It has a sea-side villa vibe that sets it apart from a lot of the similar backdrops I’ve seen. It also sits high off the ground which gives it the feel of being part of some ancient hilltop villa. To get your copy of this beautiful backdrop you’ll need to join the MINIMAL group. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden.

MINIMAL - November Group Gift

Petite Mort

Welcome to my sanctuary, also known as the most recent group gift at MINIMAL. This backdrop by MINIMAL is not only gorgeous, it is free to all MINIMAL group members. It comes in 2 versions; one with side door openings like shown, and one with out. The MINIMLAL group is 50 linden to join.

Also, the sweet little dress I’m wearing is the free July group gift at WellMade. It has a color/texture change hud that lets you pick from 7 solid pastel colors for the top, and 7 watercolor-like floral prints for the skirt. Currently the WellMade group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. Don’t have group space? You can also pick this gift up on the Marketplace for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Peek-a-Boo

Peek-a-boo

Hello again FabFree’ers! I hope your weekend was wonderful and that your Monday is good as any Monday can possibly be!  I am excited to be starting another week of freebie and offer hunting for you all.

Oh Carolina!

Today I am sharing an item that is still out for 55L Thursday, and likely to be so for another couple of days but even so, if you want it, you shouldn’t delay.

Virtue is one of my favourite places to go for classy, ladylike, well made items of clothing, and this top does not disappoint.  It is a brand new release and comes in a variety of shades, and this white colour is on offer for just 55L.  I love the little ties at the wrist, the length is just right and I was able to wear it over many different bottoms without any bleed through – which is a real bonus as far as I am concerned – I love versatile pieces I can wear with lots of different wardrobe staples.

It comes in a humongous list of  sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
  • Slink Physique
  • Large, medium and small for Classic Avatar (alpha included)
  • Tonic fine and curvy
  • Ocacin & Ocacin Voluptuous

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Bonbon Mina
Top – Virtue Carolina (55L Thursday)
Leggings – Neve, Deedee, poetry
Shoes – Phedora Sorcha Flats
Pose – Foxcity Autumn
Background – part of Maya’s Autumn House 


A tale of Ice Cream and Kittens

FF4 v3 final

Today we find a rather glum Zsa.  I told her that if she still wanted to buy stuff on top of all the freebies and cheapies all us FabFree girls hunt down, she had to get a job.  I found her one in the local ice cream parlour, The Sugar Bowl, but she is not impressed, and spent her days day dreaming about Elvis, and trying to avoid damaging her new manicure.

At least she dressed well for her first day at her new job, and her outfit includes 2 group gifts and a dress that cost very little.

The dress…..

….. is from Bowtique and available on the marketplace for just 50L includes a 25 option texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya (with autohide)
  • Fitmesh
  • 5 fitmesh standard avatar sizes (alphas included)

The Sparkly Stuff….

…..consists of group gifts from Cae. The group is free to join, and there are other gifts to pick up including the companion necklace for this bracelet and earrings.

And finally….

…….Kitty nails!  Zsa, like the person behind the monitor, is animal obsessed (you should see her Jian folder), with a particular love of cats, bats, elephants and goats – but cats always come first.  One of many free group gifts available from Alme is a kitten manicure! The group costs 50L to join but there are frequent gifts and a wall of previous gifts to pick up.  The Alme system uses an easy hud allowing you to apply to all these systems with a click.  To pick your gifts up just put your Alme tag on, and pay the vendor 1L, which will immediately be refunded).

    • Alme
    • Belleza
    • Slink
    • Maitreya
    • Omega
    • Vista
    • Tuty’s

As you can’t see the nails very well, here is a vendor pic:

Alme Love Kittens Nails, lilac

Must dash, I need to search for another job for Zsa, I don’t think this one will last very long.  She switched the fridge off by mistake and all the ice cream melted.  Whoops.
