Adventures in Babysitting

Adventure 3
Hello there, Fab Free!  In my last post {HERE}, I told you about the Flawless Sim’s Adventures in Babysitting quest that Ripley and I had recently completed.  Today I have a quick post to share three more of the 11 free prizes that are awarded at the completion of the quest.

A Bird in the Hand

First of all, the Pretty Saffron Finch perched on my finger came from Zo Awesum.  The cute little guy is so adorable, and comes with his own cage, but I kind of figured he’d appreciate some freedom so he could stretch his wings.  Best of all, he is completely free when you finish the babysitting quest.  When I was a little girl in real life, I used to sit quietly below my father’s bird feeder, with my hand outstretched, just hoping a feathered friend might land on my fingers, but it never happened.  At least I get to experience that in SL. 🙂

A Free Top….Why Knot?

My free, long sleeved, knotted top from Tori Stylez was well worth all the searching for those two wandering twins.  Lily features a delicate floral print and realistic folds in the texture.  It includes a color change HUD packed with 8 options, so it’s like getting 8 different shirts in one.  I chose to pair  the crop top with simple denim shorts, but you could also dress it up with a skirt or a pair of longer pants on a cool day.  I really like how the ends of the ties dangle down.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Adventure 1

The Mark of Beauty

Sometimes in SL, it seems like everything is just too perfect, too flawless.  With the free Adventures in Babysitting gift from Arte, you can add a touch of whimsy and visual interest to an otherwise perfect complexion.  With the Catwa Adored Moles applier, you can wear two versions of a sprinkling of beauty marks.  I think they provide a lovely touch of character, and help to draw the eye to your face. Below, I’ve included snapshots of my face with no beauty mark applier (on the left) and with the second variation  of the moles (on the right), so you can get an idea of the range of options available. One of the wonderful things about SL is the ability to change the appearance of your skin with just a few clicks.

Adventures 5

Well, that wraps up my coverage of the Adventures in Babysitting quest at the Flawless Sim.  The event runs only until May 29th, and grants you 11 free prizes in all  at the completion of the quest.  I enjoyed reading the story as I traveled from store to store, and was very happy with the quality of the gifts at the end.  To begin your own adventure, teleport to the Flawless Sim, and click the event sign to obtain the necessary Hud.  Wear the HUD, which will appear as a red oval on your screen, say yes when prompted for permission, then left touch the HUD and select “Adventure in” on the sub menu.   Directions for completing the quest will appear on your screen.

Until my next post, happy shopping questing!

What’s In Your Garage Fair Goodie Bag?

Snapshot_001Hello Fab Readers!  Yesterday was a really busy day for both Carson and I in the real world, but when we both happened to pop online at the same time yesterday and I teleported him to where I was taking this photo…  oddly enough, we were both wearing these jackets.  You know they say after a while you just start dressing alike, and I didn’t believe it until just then!  He hopped up on the crates behind me and waited for me to finish the picture, but I shifted my camera to include him too and I like the way it turned out.  🙂

Put on a jacket!

In my last blog post [HERE], I mentioned that there are several free gifts at The Garage Fair and these cool shirt/leather jacket combos that you see Carson and I wearing today are available as a free group gift for joining the Fair Lovers or Hunters  inworld group.  You’ll find these at the landing point of the event and the group is just 1L to join.

You can wear these jackets with or without the shirt and there are two versions of the jacket colour as well.  Plenty of mesh sizes are included in both the male and female packs and an alpha layer is included for those on the system body.

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island.  I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world.  I found the perfect poses for times like these.  Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers.  Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package.  Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included:  

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

King (and Queen) of the Jungle

Snapshot_0033

Queen Bee…

In my SL existence I feel like I’m the king of my jungle…. My 512 x 512 jungle….  it’s all mine, none the less. But the one thing I have learned is that I may be the king, but it’s the queen who rules the jungle. If she isn’t happy, no one is happy. My advice to all you guys out there… keep the queen happy!

Royal garb…

Today, with her help, we are showing off gifts from two groups. Hypnose has as a gift for their members, the matching King and Queen Shirts for him and her. There will be no doubt who is the royalty in these shirts. The group is free to join, however the gift requires you to pay 1L and get refunded 1L.

Since you asked…

Our couples pose is Since by Reel Poses.  The group gift is free to members but there is a 30L joining fee. This is the perfect pose to show off her best feature….  Dang! remember what I said about keeping the queen happy? I think I just messed up…

A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

In Her Eyes 2

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

I hope you’ve found something in today’s outfit to inspire you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Ring Ring

Snapshot_001Hey there FabFree! It never fails…  I pour a nice hot bath with some pretty smelly salts, and the phone rings!  I sit on the edge and submerge my tired feet instead, waiting for the babbling ear assault to end before I can soak my worries of the day away.  Surely it’s going to be cold by the time this call ends… but I suppose I can always just add in more hot water :).

To Make A Long Story Short

While I’m sitting here, I should mention that the satin cherry blossom printed shorts I have on are a free group gift at Kendrasy Creations!  They are actually quite similar to a pair I own in real life that I just love to wear around the house in the summer, so I was happy to see these in Second Life too!  This group is free to join and there are a couple more gifts you can pick up as well including [THIS ONE that Pru blogged].

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Pretty in Pastels

Pastel
Hello Fab Free’rs, It’s been such a busy week for me, I’m just not sure why! lol Needless to say I’m always excited when I get to share my Fabulous finds with you. Even after all the time I’ve spent in Second Life, and all the experiences I’ve had, bargain hunting remains one of my favorite pastimes. The best bargains however, are the ones that come to you, no hunting required.

The Best Things in Second Life are Free

Just recently Graffitiwear sent out this beautiful jewelry set to their subscriber members. Each item in this FREE gift is beautifully detailed.

The Skin Pru’s In 

This lovely face is courtesy of WoW Skins, via their April group gift. I always like the combination of a soft smokey eye with a pale lip. The April group gift at WoW includes two classic system skins (one with a little extra cleavage), and an Omega applier that works for Omega compatible bodies and heads. To get this FREE group gift, you’ll need to join the WoW Skins group which carries a one time join fee of 450 linden.

Chillin’ With the E.B.

Some Bunny Loves You

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope your week has gotten off to a good start.  Now that my computer is up and running again (crossed fingers and toes), I can tell  my favorite readers about two free gifts that are available, just in time for the arrival of spring weather.  Ok, well, spring weather hasn’t hit everywhere yet, but a girl can dream of carefree, spring weather, right?

Hanging Out With the E.B. In My New Tee

Enjoying his last few weeks of freedom before the big holiday, Mr. E.B. and I enjoyed a quiet moment at the NorderNey sim while Ripley tried to convince some lambs to play “herd the sheep.”  My fitted, light teal colored t-shirt today is a free gift for members of the Justice store group.  With a curve-hugging shape, realistic texture, and adorable ties at the waist, the Brandy shirt will have you yearning to frolic in warm spring breezes.  With a texture-change HUD packed with 15 choices, this casual scoop necked top is a versatile addition to any wardrobe.  The Justice group has a 10L join fee, but with the quality of this pretty pullover, you won’t be disappointed.

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus
  • Color change HUD

My Lips Are Sealed

Sparkling Earrings

I decided to jazz up my outfit with a fanciful pair of dangling earrings that brought to mind the Eagles’ song Peaceful Easy Feeling.  I love the ornate twists and turns in the silver metal, which are accented with aquamarine crystals.  If gold is more your style, you are in luck because the package includes both metal types.  Best of all, these Gothica Earrings are currently on sale at the promo price of only 70L at Baubles! by Phe.  I’m not sure how long the promotion will last, so if you want to scoop up these jewels for yourself, I’d suggest heading on over to Baubles soon.

Fancy Free

One of the best parts of balmy weather is being able to slide on a pair of comfy flip flops, and feel the breezes caress my toes.  After being caged up all winter in boots, my feet relish the freedom offered by sandals.  With a moment’s notice I can slip off my footwear, and dangle my tootsies in the surf, or feel the warmth of sun-drenched sand on the soles of my feet.  Just in time for my peaceful, easy day, I discovered these free Sandy FlipFlops from Drops.  All I had to do was join the Drops group for free, click the display in the store, and this pair of summer-friendly footwear completed my look.
