Key to My Heart

Key to My Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Readers!

Oh, I’m all hearts and candy today, happily batting my eyelashes and being flouncy.   I’m feeling the love, what can I say?  My pretty little outfit is helping the cause as well, so read on to find out how you can grab it too!

Heart Eyes

Belle Epoque has a mini hunt going on!  The creator, Janire Coba, has created 15 beautiful items for V-Day, all priced at just 10L each.  So search high and low for these gorgeous creations, because they’re totally worth it!  I found item number 11, which is this flirty little dress festooned with heart-shaped locks and keys. The dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   So so sweet!  You’d better hurry down to Belle Epoque though, because the hunt will end on the 18th of February! Oh and by the way, here’s a handy little pic of all the prizes:

Key to My Heart 2

Happy Hunting, Valentines.  I heart you all!

Is It Spring Yet?

Belleepoque25LTuesdayHEY!  Do you know what day it is?

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another round of 25L Tuesday!  I received a notice in the Belle Epoque inworld group last night to notify me that they are offering their {Uma} skirt and two different coloured tops (I am wearing the orange, but there is also a sunshiny yellow!) for 25L a piece and it just screamed “BLOG ME”, so I had to show it to you!

I know you all love to see free stuff here on FabFree, but you know…  sometimes these offers are actually less expensive than a group join fee, so I thought they were worth a mention here.  I know that if I had found these three items as group gifts with a 75L join fee, I’d have paid it to pick them up, so paying 25L a pop for them is all the same to me!  Plus…  SPRING FLOWERS! (SWOON)

Try Before You Buy!

The three {Uma} pieces come in one fitted mesh size that fits my Maitreya Lara body like a glove, but since it doesn’t specify which body exactly they fit, please do try a demo before you buy.  While you are there make sure you check out the lucky boards outside on the lawn, and the group gifts available inside the store.

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

The Masked Soirée

The Masked Soirée

I was invited to an exclusive masked soirée at the Manor.  The invite said “dress to impress”, and being someone who takes people at their word, I planned my outfit with aplomb.  There is nothing that will turn heads quite like a shiny bodysuit, and if it’s free, then who am I to complain?  I have to say, heads swiveled so fast in my direction, I wouldn’t be surprised if they all got whiplash!

Head-Turner

I found this hot little number at Belle Époque, where they have several great Lucky Letter boards set up outside.  There are so many fantastic outfits, but this one really fit the bill!  You can pick it up without joining any group for absolutely free, just wait for your letter to come up!  The bodysuit is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

The gorgeous peacock feather mask is also available at Belle Époque and is one of the Fab Free Group Gifts!  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free tag, and click away!  The Fab Free Group is always free to join and new gifts are being added all the time!

Well, I’ve got a full dance card, so I’m off to dance the night away with some handsome suitors….

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

A Shutterbug in a Winter Wonderland

Kodak moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I visited The Mill for another dose of winter wonderland, and came across multiple kodak moments.  There aren’t too many things that would make me kneel in the snow (brrrr!) to snap a photo, but the gorgeous landscape, and Rip’s new pals decked in winter accessories are two of them.  Aren’t Rufus and Rex super cute?

Lilian and Naia Are Super Cute, Too!

There is something so classic in the combination of red and black, and I created this look today by combining three group gifts.  First, my off-the-shoulder, crimson sweater is a free gift from ::LiES:: Creations for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group.  With ribbed knitting on the neck and hemline, and a realistic texture in the body of the sweater, this top is bright and cheerful.  Inside the gift package, you will find versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Since the MGS&N group is free to join, the Lilian pullover won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Also a group gift, this time from Belle Epoque, my Naia pants come in black, blue, red, white and yellow, so it’s like getting four presents in one.  A free giftie for members of the Teleport Hub group, these trousers don’t come in different sizes, but they fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly, closely hugging each and every curve.  Featuring a shimmering, satiny texture topped with well placed folds, Naia is sure to flatter your figure.  To add these slacks to your inventory, simply journey to the shop on the Wild Willows sim, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and tap the vendor.  While you are there, you might want to scoop up the theatrical Venetian Mask which is a gift for Fab Free group members.

All Wrapped Up

To add a finishing touch, I applied a brilliant red manicure, which is a free gift from Hello Dave for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  You can get a better view of this fun polish in my close up below.  “Early Wrapping” features silver ribbons tied across a cherry red background, which is bound to put you in a festive mood!  This applier is compatible with Slink (v2 and above), Maitreya (just click the small nail polish bottles on the right side of the HUD), and Belleza, Vista and Empire (providing you have the appropriate Omega System Kit for the particular brand of hands).

Kodak Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap for this post (I couldn’t resist the pun).  Rip and I are off to explore some more of this wintery landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

Get Moving!

BelleEGGThey say “Home is where the heart is”, but which one of these boxes did I pack it in??

Hey there Fabulouses! One of the many cool things about Second Life is that you can pick up your entire home at the drop of a hat and go from a beach bungalow to a mountain chalet or New York studio, or where ever your heart desires…  Even a tree house or a cave if you like!  You don’t even have to change locations if you don’t want to, you can just pick it all up, and put something new down.  If only it was that easy in real life!

Enough Babbling Love, What ARE You Wearing?

My casual fall outfit today was put together with a couple of new goodies I came across this week – which was perfect timing, because they look great together!

You can pick up the LFE Leonie Sweater I am wearing today for just 10L in several mesh body sizes on the marketplace, and in fact…  if you do a little browsing through their marketplace listings, you’ll find that you can pick up the same sweater in several prints for just 10L each.

Sizes Included:

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

What goes better with a cozy sweater than some fuzzy warm boots?

Not much, and you can find the Mina Boots as a free group gift at Belle Epoque with a 10L join fee.  These boots will fit any kind of mesh avatar using their alpha huds and may work with the system body too if you happen to have the right alpha layer already in your inventory (alpha layer not incuded).  You will not only find the gorgeous brown colour I am wearing, but all of the following colours in your gift folder!

Boot Colours:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Coffee
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Wine
