Wake me up

FabFree Post: Wake me up

Wake me up inside

And after typing out “wake me up inside” all I can think about is “wake me up when September ends” *you are so welcome* because I am super excited for all the pretty fall colors mixed with the end of summer green! Fall has to be my second favorite season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pie, Freshly Baked Cookies, Festivals, Falling Leaves, and so much more puts this season on top just under Spring. The days become shorter, the nights become colder, snuggling under a blanket watching movies, warm fuzzy socks.. all highlights of a typical Bunnie Fall.

Early last week BackBone gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming free group gift, I had to very patiently wait until it was released, and let me tell you, this GLORIOUS Warrior is my new favorite decor item, hands down! The detail on the statue alone made my jaw hit the floor. I know L$500 is a hit but if you think about all the past free group gifts you can snag while there it makes the cost small in comparison. It comes with the ability to turn the water sounds up or down, which is amazing because I love the sound sometimes but when I’m working it could be slightly distracting to me.
Then again that could just be a “me” thing.

Belle Epoque has put out a very inspiring dress for 25LT Sale (sale prices only good for Tuesday 9/15) coming in 8 colors for L$25 each with options for short and long. Both dress styles of the dress are classic and could be used for RP or even a new age shot because we all know vintage looks come back over and over again 🙂 So soon we will all be using standard avatars again ❤ JK!

Fits:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

Back to Cool

Back to Cool

It’s back to school time in my part of the world, and I’m always a sucker for new clothes, new stationery and new friends!  There’s something exciting about September, it’s always been one of my faves.  A big shout out to all the teachers heading back to uncertain circumstances in schools, whether you’re teaching in person or doing remote learning, and also to all the students who are heading back to a school building that doesn’t function the way it did in the past.  Stay safe, education land!

Feeling Pretty, Yet Again!

The other day I showed you the newest group gift from Pr!tty, and I’m happy today to show you the second one that you’ll also get!  The Pr!tty group is free to join, and you’ll find this full fatpack of hair in group notices.  I love every minute of it!

Alpha Beta

Another group gift you’re sure to enjoy is yet another you can get over at Alpha Female.  This group is also free to join, so this full outfit is an awesome deal!  In the box you’ll find the top, jacket and jeans, perfect for back to school awesomeness.  The top and jacket combo can be worn separately from the jeans, so they’re a good staple to add to your collection.  Oh, there’s also a pair of boots in the box too!

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way

Ramblin’ On

I couldn’t help but quote a bit of Led Zeppelin at you.  When Autumn comes around, that song always has me feeling all the feels!  Anyway, there’s maaaaassive news from Mangula today, and that is that they’ve got 20 free gift boxes lying around the store for everyone to pick up!  No group join required, just click on the boxes scattered around the shop.  You’ll also find that each box doesn’t just contain one gift, they each contain multiple, and that’s hella generous!  I fell in love with the contents of box #6, which is this awesome corseted dress.  I don’t know how long this will be going on for, as it is listed as “limited time only” so get your patoot over there!

Update:  Looks like you have to hit the subscrib-o-matic in order to pick up the gifts!  It’s located over the front desk and is free to join!

Hair Done, Nails Done

Hair and nails…we can never have enough, can we?  I won’t talk too much, let’s get right down to the action!

Feelin’ Pr!tty

There’s a new group gift at Pr!tty!  Well… actually there are two.  But I’m showing off one tonight!  The super high and floofy pony called Brittany will have you feeling extra peppy and cute!  You can grab it in group notices when you join the free Pr!tty group.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, so they’ve totally got you covered.

Nailed it!

To make sure you’re looking fab all over, Belle Epoque also have a new group gift of very pretty polished bento nails.  They have lots of different gradient colour options in the HUD and are rigged for Maitreya fingers.  There are some great deep Fall colours in there, so you’ll be ready for the season!  Grab them (and all the other awesome gifts) by joining the Belle Epoque group for just 10L.

See you beauties soon!

Pink Power

Pink Power

A bit of pink here and there (or everywhere) never really goes amiss.  I think the extreme girlishness of it all really just makes me happy.  And really, can you ever have too much pink?

Like a Mouse

The latest group gift from Mouse is what put me in a pink state of mind today!  Isn’t the top and skirt combo oh so cute?  I love every minute of it.  To get your own, just join the Mouse group for free and it’s all yours.  You’ll find several other gifts there as well, freebies and a bunch of lucky boards.  So much fun!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Belle Epoque

Hello and happy weekend to you. Thank you so much for being here. I’m excited to share with you another of our Fabulous Fab Free designers, Belle Epoque, to start off the weekend. Belle Epoque is a women’s clothing boutique with an elegant feminine style that lends itself well to the wide range of clothing. At Belle Epoque you will find a lot of beautiful clothing, casual dresses, formal gowns, even fantasy and role play themed items. There is also lingerie, casual attire, and even some jewelry.

Belle Epoque Store Group 

The Belle Epoque in-world group has a small join fee of 10 linden. Considering there are 6 group gifts at this time, that’s one heck of a bargain! Group members get first knowledge of sales, promos, group gifts, and events. They also are able to trade Belle Epqoue gacha items in chat.

Group Gifts (Free Group Gifts/10L to Join)

  • Pride Shirt
  • Serene Jewelry Set
  • Giulia Casual Dress
  • Tian Casual Dress
  • Kanemi – Asian Inspired Rob
  • Women’s Day Gift – Formal Gown

Fab Free Group Gift

We love our designer’s generosity with their exclusive free gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Taylor Earrings are Belle Epoque’s current group gift for Fab Free. We’ve shown these fun earrings a few times on the blog. Aline wore them in her post “I’m Still Standing” and I followed and showed them again in my post “Right Here Waiting.” You can get them for free with you Fab Free group tag. If you’re not a member yet, join up! The Fab Free group is free to join.

Other Group Gifts & Finds

Along side the gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members, there are a few other group gifts to be had at Belle Epoque. Below is a quick list of the additional gifts and their required group, and any join fee. Also I think it’s very much worth mentioning that Belle Epoque has a huge wall of gachas that runs almost the full length of the store. Most if not all of the gachas are priced at just 50 linden per play. Happy Shopping!

Just Keep Swimming

Just Keep Swimming

Ah, to be a mermaid.  I’d 100% be a lazy mermaid though, the kind that spends her time in the shallows and waves her tail nonchalantly at passing princes.  I don’t have time to be embroiled in underwater intrigue, this mermaid just wants to chill!

Flipping Her Fins

Ok, I’ve been looking for an awesome mermaid tail for a while now (I already own a few, but you know…you can never have too many) when along comes this pretty one from Fireheart!  It is 100% free when you join their free group.  It also comes with the shell-like bra top, as well as a very mermaid-like pose (not pictured).  It’s everything you need for your mermaid fantasy!  It doesn’t really specify what size it is, so a bit of alpha work may be necessary to work on your body.  It worked rather well with my Maitreya body once I alpha’d out my legs and feet.  To get it, just peek in group notices by pasting this code into your local chat:

secondlife:///app/group/68a7c062-e87e-9003-9182-0eb394f12f57/about

Her Crown

No mermaid princess would dare show her face in the shallows without the perfect diadem.  You know, diadem, crown, tiara…head jewelry…whatever you want to call it!  The latest group gift at Belle Époque is colourful, happy and works with my look really well.  I didn’t use the necklace that is also included, but it is also super fun and I’ve added the vendor pic below so you can see it.  To get it, join the Belle Époque group for 10L, and it’s yours!  There are a bunch of other gorgeous gifts to grab while you’re there!

 

Time for some tilapia!

The Beautiful Bunny

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, and today you are all gorgeous! Today is the day I spend with family and I had such a great day in real life, which made me so happy to come back as soon as I could and share the thought of the day. If everyone treated others how they wanted to be treated we would all be treated like gold. So when you are faced with a chance to be the beholder that sees beauty all around, take it, and share that love with others. We will only see a change when we can all love ourselves as much as we love others. ❤

This gown from Belle Epoque makes me feel like a billion Doll Hairs :0 and their textures are on point with this Teleport Hub Group Gift at their shop! The Teleport Hub Group does cost L$10 but if you factor in this free dress with that price it’s a steal! The dress only comes in Maitreya Lara as an option and in this one very sensual red color. Next is this cute Kyoto Set that matches so adorably in this photo! The free group gift (For the free to join SL F&O group) is the fan and headpiece with matching colors and patterns. They brought this gift back just for a short time so make sure you get the group and get this free gift asap! You will never know when you will need to cool off from all the HOT savings FabFree is showing you lately!

Sweet Thing has another secret gift out at their shop and with their group being free this is a score! It’s a lovely wire necklace with crystals, I wish I had something like this in real life as I am a huge fan of wire wrapped jewelry & crystals! I digress, again… back to the necklace, which comes with a hud that changes the crystal 24 colors and the metals 8 colors.

Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis), Signature Alice, MeshBody Legacy

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Spread the Love

Spread the Love

I’m feeling full of love today, Fab Free.  It could be the fact that people have been sending me nice notes, it could be the fact that I am grateful for all my friends and family, or it could be because I think the world needs just a bit more love these days.  I think it’s probably a combination of all these things!  Don’t forget to spread a bit of lovins to everyone around you.  A little goes a long way.

Si Belle

There’s a new group gift at Belle Époque!  This sweet tied t-shirt (sized for Maitreya and Legacy) is all about pride and love.  Y’all know I have a thing for rainbows!  To get it all you have to do is join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  There are lots of gifts to pick up for such a minimal fee, and new ones appear often.  Nice!

What a Drag!

The latest group gift from COCO has also made an appearance, and I adooooore them.  These long, wide-leg pants strike a balance between comfort and fashion, and I’m sure you’ll find loads of outfits to wear them with!  There are two different versions, this striped one, and an animal print version for all you wild ones out there.  To get them,  all you have to do is join the COCO group for free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Always Pr!tty

And lastly today, Pr!tty’s latest group gift was just released and it’s hella cute.  These long tousled locks come in a fatpack of colours, and there’s a free watermelon headband thrown in too!  Join the Pr!tty group for free to access this lovely hairdo, and stay buckled in to the group for their monthly offering.  Adorbs or what?

Hugs all round,
