Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

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

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You

Paint the Town

Ah, a night on the town!  Just what is needed!  I want carefree dancing, bright lights, and a bit of excitement.  SL to the rescue!  I can have a night out without leaving my chair.

Up Top

My outfit is a collection of several different stops for you today, and I hope you won’t fault me too much for sending you off on a mission to put it together!  First stop is MellowCute, where you can grab this little lacy bralette.  It’s perfect for making heads swivel as you walk into a room.  To get it, just join the MellowCute group for free, and click on the vendor.

In The Bag

My really cool clutch is courtesy of 28LA.  I love the drawings on it!  It’s the event gift over at the 2MUCH event, which just kicked off a few days ago.  Join their free group, and you’ll gain access to this fun gift!  Ta-da!

Tip Toe

Of course, for the perfect night out you’ll need the perfect set of heels, and you’ll find the ones I’ve got on over at Cosmopolitan.  Their free group lets you gain access to their two event gifts that you’ll find on the boards just inside the entrance.  These heels by Little Fox are so classy and cool, and they come sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Alice.  Don’t delay, this round of Cosmopolitan is only around for one more week!

Have a great night on the town, Fab Fam!

Bad Girls Go Everywhere

Bad Girls Go EverywhereGood Girls Go to Heaven, BAD Girls Go Everywhere!

I have been DYING to make a new “Demon of Anguish” look! I have always loved the darker side of things but with 99% of my photos/posts are all bubbly and bright I felt like I wouldn’t be doing any of you a favor by showcasing only the “Good Girl” side. I’ve let my Inner Demoness out and she’s itching to burn things down, so tonight I’m going to spend my Night Out and causing some dark fun for everyone.

Pacagaia has this sexy harness out for their FREE Group Gift and honestly, it fits perfectly with my feelings for today. The FREE group gift comes with a hud that gives you 12 color options for the leather harness and 3 metals. Make sure you get their FREE Group by copying the code below and pasting it in local.

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.

Self Expression

Self Expression

“I’m not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion.
Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression.”
~ Phoebe Philo

Hello hello Fab Free’ers! I’m going to make this short and sweet because one of the finds I am about to share with you is for this weekend only. This gorgeous leather jacket is a Happy Weekend special at LeiMotiv priced at just 60 linden for this weekend only. It comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud that allows you to change the main portion of the jacket, the pockets on the sleeves, and the metal parts.

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

Adorning my new jacket are several pins from the two free pin sets at Star Sugar. I’ve been eyeing these for a little while now, waiting for just the right thing to wear them with. Pin set 1 includes 16 pins and is free for SLF&O group members. That group is free to join. Pin set 2 has 9 pins and is free for everyone, no group needed. These pins are intended (I believe) for a backpack also sold at Star Sugar, however I was able to wear them with my jacket by attaching them to my chest attachment spot and moving them to the place I wanted by editing them. I’ve included the vendor photos for each of the two sets below so you can get a look at these cute as heck pins.

Lyrical Love

Its Friday night and that means its time to party like Post Malone until the sun comes up. Showcasing our moves like jagger with all the girls at the club where its ladies night, because let’s face it girls just wanna have fun. We all jam to our favorite songs from the coolest DJ around and vogue until we need some water and head to the bar. Drinking our water we hear another old school tune and it makes us all jump around until the bouncer is screaming closing time to everyone inside the club. We love to dance the night away and our feet are so sore we toss our heels in our cars, we all will walk like an Egyptians to the nearest pancake restaurant.

Secrets has this gift a cute little rabbit necklace and earring set for their group members. I was given the top-secret information by one of our readers ❤ (Thank you) and I went right over to find the goods. The group gift comes with Black, Copper, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver options for their earrings and necklace.

Lioness

Lioness

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”
― Osho

“A lion doesn’t concern itself with the opinion of sheep.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

With today’s post I want to encourage everyone, myself included, to take the path of the lion. I understand that at times this is easier said than done. What inspired all this inclination toward courage and self love? My shirt believe it or not. This cropped tee was destined to become a staple in my wardrobe. It also happens to pair quite nicely with this earring artwork that has me kind of obsessed. I’ll tell you all about each of these fantastic finds, and hopefully you’ll feel a little inspired by them as well.

MicrO

The lion top is a 75 linden Marketplace bargain from a little shop called MicrO. I would encourage you to check there Marketplace store out. If the lion isn’t really your bag, there are several other versions available at MicrO with the same affordable price. I genuinely like the fit of this crop. It’s short enough to be sexy but I don’t feel like the girls are going to expose themselves if I move around too much.

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

Garmonbozia

I’m not sure how long  Garmonbozia has been around however I am excited about this new-to-me store find. Along with being aesthetically pretty, the jewelry there is truly wearable art. I even like that this free group gift earring is just a single earring, and not a pair. It’s eye catching and fierce. Though you can’t see it, I paired it with a simple stud in my other ear for symmetry. The Garmonbozia group is free to join.
