Don’t Be Afraid To Sparkle

SissBoom
Unleash Your Inner Sparkle…

And your outer sparkle too, with this new group gift at Siss Boom!  Siss Boom VIPs have a new addition to the massive group gift section.  The sparkly off the shoulder pull over sweater is now available in peach as shown on my avatar and also a silver.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody
  • TMP

The Siss Boom inworld group is 500L to join, which may seem like a high fee to pay for a sweater set, and you’d be right, but it’s not just for the sweater!  There’s a WHOLE shelf full of gifts for you upon your group activation so have a look ;).  With the generous gifts that are given often, I have never felt bad about the one time I had to pay this fee.

Love Birds

I also wanted to take a sec to say a little thing or two about the Love Birds Necklace by Cae that I am wearing as I was able to pick it up on sale for just 75L.  It is a Saturday Sale special, however it is still available today at the same price if you are interested.  This is includes a texture change HUD for gold/silver and you can turn the leaves off, or personalize them with initials.  You’ll find this very sweet offer just at the landing point! – UPDATE – This is now regular price :/

I’ll Spread My Wings and Fly

I'll Spread My Wings and Learn How to Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a super quick post tonight to share with you another of the Fabulous Finds that Ripley and I discovered on the trail of the Dress Her Up Hunt.  In my post {HERE}, I shared the first hunt item we discovered.  This next one from <Trashed> is just as fantastic!  For only 2 Linden dollars, I was able to scoop up the adorable Birdie Skirt, which features a fun avian print, soft pleats and a narrow waistband that sits just below my belly button.   I chose to pair it with a white cropped top, but I think black would also coordinate nicely.  One thing I really appreciated about this hunt prize is it includes classic sizes as well as mesh body versions.  The hunt runs through March 31st, so there is still plenty of time left to pick up some budget-friendly additions to your inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Fine
  • Isis
  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

I’m Sporting a Neon Rainbow

Spring is on the Way

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  Since March came in like a lion in my neck of the woods, I’m sure err – I mean – hoping it will go out like a lamb with plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  Well, even if it’s only “springish” in SL, I’m ready with a couple of budget-friendly fashion finds.  It must be a rainbow kinda day, because just like in Aline’s post {HERE}, I donned a rainbow of my own, but more about that later.

Start At the Top

My ruffled, multi-layer Calinda top features pale, vertical stripes near the neckline, and an organic, almost floral motif on the lower hems.  Made exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, this cropped shirt will help me celebrate the arrival of warm days, and will be a fashion staple throughout the entire summer.  Tucked inside the package, you’ll find white and teal strapless versions, as well as the same shades sporting spaghetti straps for that extra assurance your shirt will stay in place.  I chose to pair mine with jeans, but in the dog days of summer, I’m sure it will look just as adorable with shorts.   It might be simply due to the shape of my avatar, but from a side angle, a bit more of my cleavage showed than I was comfortable with.  I solved that problem by wearing a long style of hair that covered that part of the girls up.  This little number is specially priced at just one linden dollar at LS Diamond’s marketplace shop.  I’m not sure how long this will last, so if you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, I’d recommend visiting the store soon.

Then Add Some Brilliant Pops of Color

For a jaunty finishing touch, I slipped on the Neon bracelets that I picked up at Zendra for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This set is so whimsical and cheerful!  A resize script is included so you can adjust the jewelry to fit your avatar.  I had to do that for myself, and it was easy-peasy!  No editing skills required at all.  You can wear the bracelets on both arms as I chose to do, or just one.  I’m including a close up shot below so you can get a better look of this free gift.  It’s a fun throwback to my younger days when I would wear layer upon layer of jelly bangles.

Neon Rainbow

And You are All Set for Spring!

Ok, I am ready (well, more than ready) for spring to arrive.  I’m sure looking forward to shedding my jacket and taking walks in the balmy sunshine.  How about you all?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

X’s and O’s

X's and O's

Hey again my little Fab Free Peeps!

There are so many awesome freebies out there right now, and you know the Fab Free crew is just itching to show you all the goodies that are strewn about the grid!  I’ve got some more news today about a cute free top and some free hair that I picked up on the XOXO hunt, which is perfect for days when you want to show off.  And seriously, that should be every day!

Ex’s and Oh’s…

I’ve been trying my luck on the XOXO hunt.  It’s a fairly simple concept – you tp to the location, find the box (they’re not that hard to find, I promise), and then in local chat, type “XOXO”.  If the box feels you’re being romantic enough, it will gift you something fancy for free!  If not, well you have the choice of buying the prize for 50L or to come back in 24 hours and try all over again!  You can grab the handy-dandy HUD on Marketplace to preview the prizes and help with teleporting from location to location.  I got lucky at both KoKoLoReS and Bodhi!

The top I’m wearing from Bodhi is a very hot, off the shoulders number which makes me want to make horrible puns about giving people the cold shoulder.  I promise I won’t.  It’s really pretty though, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Isis

I also picked up this sleek and yet voluminous hairdo from KoKoLoReS.  It comes in several different shades, in my favourite colours: all fades where the ends of the hair are gorgeous shades of pink or blonde.  I of course went my signature dark with pink tips!  Best of all, both these prizes were completely free!

The XOXO hunt runs until February 18th, so hustle!

Free Boots, Free Dress, Free Whatever You Want!

AdrisKingSuena

Good morning FabFree!

I have some exciting news to share with you today!  I have news of a pair of super cute fringed boots and news about a group gift by Adris King worth 1000L!

On The Fringe

These suede fringers are a must have in your inventory!  You just never know when you plan to go all cowgirl, or even boho or eclectic and it’s good to be prepared.  At Suenos, you’ll find a limited quantity free gift board with these great Maitreya fit (or hide your feet and wear them with whatever!) boots in tan and black.  If it’s full up for the day, just come back the next day a little earlier and hopefully you’ll get your free pair.  Just slap the board and they are delivered like magic!

1000L Group Instore Credit At Adris King

Yep, you read right!  Adris King is offering a 1000L instore credit with your group tag activation! I managed to pick up all kinds of things for free, including this 00020 Dress which comes with a texture change denim HUD.  With my group tag activated prices were actually cheaper, and most items I looked at were around 120L each with the exception of a fancy wedding dress (300L) which I won’t be needing!!  This group is 100L to join, but you’ll be glad you did!  I contacted the designer of Adris King and asked how long this offer is available, and she did tell me that this offer will be available until February 15th, but that could change – so act quickly if you are interested!

Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

RIRLifeNCoreMINAGood morning Fabulouses!  The weekend may be nearly over, but I’m making the most of it enjoying the weather now that it has warmed up enough.  Of course it’s not warm enough to melt all of this snow, but at least it’s bearable now!

I bundled myself up in the latest group gift by RIR Life, which is the Padded Coat in the sweetest shade of Coral.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and has a group join fee of only 10L.  RIR Life does really nice monthly group gifts, so your 10L will go super far if you stay in the group.

Warm Winter Boots

I wasn’t about to head out into this frozen tundra without a good pair of winter boots, and just in time… N-Core put these cute Winter Boots out as a free group gift!  They include a texture change HUD with six colours too!  I have added the vendor ad below as well because it turns out that most of the detailing is hidden in the snowy grass :/.

N-core "Winter Boots" January GROUP GIFT! (Updated)N-Core has a group join fee of 299L, however there are several group gifts available right now including the three that I blogged recently as listed below.
