Aline and the Holograms

Aline and the Holograms

I’m sorry…did someone say HOLOGRAPHIC?  Because I am all about anything that shimmers, shines and even bears a passing resemblance to the love of my life in the 80’s – Jem and the Holograms.  You heard me, I’m all about the big hair, the massive earrings and anyone whose name is Jerrica.  That’s like Jessica, but with R’s!  Come on now, how can you say no to that?  Ok fine, maybe it needs a little toning down, but….really, only just a little!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Have you heard the buzz around the SL Frees and Offers 1st Annual hunt?  It’s big folks, and there are lots of fab designers participating, and loads of prizes to get your mitts on!  I’m showing off the really awesome holographic sweater by Caboodle (purveyors of all things shiny).  Just head on over to their store, and look around for the fall leaf that is hiding somewhere in the store.  The sweater inside is completely free, has three different colour options, and comes sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya bodies.

While on the hunt, I also came across these fantastic shoes by Ch’s (also completely FREE!).  I love the buttons up the side.  Very military-inspired and completely and utterly adorable.  I love them.  There’s an HUD included with a boatload of colour options, and they come sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Good luck!

Ain’t That the Truth

Here comes the next offering from Truth!  This month’s group gift is a really lovely and undone braid called Ciara.  Very sweet and soft.  If braids aren’t your thing, the stylist HUD has the option of turning it into a messy bun.  I do love a good stylist HUD!  As always, the Truth VIP hairstyle comes with a whole fatpack of colours.  If you haven’t joined yet, it’s 350 L, which is extremely reasonable, and SUCH a good deal.  Join the group and check in notices to pick up your own copy!

Until next time!

A place in the sun

A place in the sun

Pretty sunshine and a cute outfit…I mean, it’s not the beach but it’s still pretty great!

The whole kit and Caboodle

Caboodle’s store name always makes me think of that saying. I’m not really going anywhere with that…it just does. ANYWAY, this super cute top is the newest free group gift from Caboodle. It’s seriously sooooo adorable. It’s cropped just perfect and the texture is fab and the little flowers along the bottom are just the right finishing touch. This shirt comes sized just for Maitreya and Hourglass, and with a HUD that lets you change the color of the flowers, the trim, and the shirt itself independently. There are a bunch of pretty pastel shades and some of them have a really cool metallic kind of sheen to them. Caboodle is 50L to join and there’s a wall of really well done group gifts available behind the desk when you enter the store.

I’m an Urban Farmer

I don’t even know what that means, but it’s the name of these great pants that I’m wearing. My subtitles are really lacking tonight. The pants that I’m referring to are a free group gift from Loordes of London and the group is free to join. I popped over to grab the FabFree group gift sandals (which I’m not wearing) and came away with so much more. It’s the story of my SLife, but at least they were free in this case! I just love the cute style and it comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

 

Oh one last thing – my pose is technically a freebie as well. It’s by IOS but it’s the unpack pose from Euphoric and you can get it for free by going and grabbing the group gifts that Aline posted about here the other day. I’m such a pose hoarder, surely I’m not the only one who saves and uses cute unpack poses? Or maybe I am. Don’t answer that.

Serial Chiller

Serial Chiller
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I sincerely hope everyone is having a good week so far. For me, today is a total laundry day. Not so lazy but definitely a day for something comfy and casual to wear while folding clothes and lugging the laundry basket around. The newest group gift at gO! is perfect for a day like this. For a little fun I also picked up the most recent group gift at Caboodle, and lasts but never least the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid. I hope you like my cute laundry day look!

Serial Chiller

I simply could not resist this group gift outfit from gO!. I love the details in the over-sized slashed and slouchy shirt, as well as the comfy looking capri style pants.

Meow Kitty Ears Meow

I think I’ve mentioned before that very early in my Second Life I was Neko, and while I no longer don ears and a tail on a regular basis I’m always a sucker for cute kitty ears. Caboodle’s new group gift just so happens to be this pair of adorable kitty ears complete with wraps and bows. The ears have a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of the inside fur, outside fur, bows, and wraps. The Caboodle group has a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

Feline Eyes

As luck would have it the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid is a set of beautiful sunset inspired feline eyes. They are a FREE exclusive group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The group is always FREE to join. These eyes come in dark, medium, and light color versions. Pru is wearing the darkest of the 3 options.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown – the latest group gift from .miss chelsea. – would be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store – no group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! 🙂

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

Follow Me – Everything Is Alright

Snapshot_001
Good morning Fabulouses :).  When Edi mentioned last week that there were new free group lucky boards at Caboodle in her post [HERE], I ran right over to see if there was anything for me.  Low and behold – there was!  Not only did I snag the leather pants she told us about in a couple different colours, but my lucky letter also came up for this super sweet Shaleene Dress in Green Leaves print.  I have shown this dress in different prints previously on FabFree (once as a hunt prize in Blue Floral [HERE] and once in a solid burgandy as a group gift which is still available [HERE], so as you can see…  I REALLY like the cut of this dress 😉

The Caboodle group is free to join – good luck with your lucky letter!

By the water

By the water

Spending as much time as I do on beach sims, it’s easy to get lost in an endless Summer dream. I’ve only just recently traded in my sundresses and flip flops for some warmer options in the hopes of getting with the weather and have been pretty pleased with some of the finds. The tunic pictured is a dollarbie from Atis and comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L). Included is a Hud that controls the colors on the chevrons and the option to put stripes on the tunic itself. For the picture, I choose a cool blue though there are five other colors to choose from and I simply love the metallic sheen to them.

Also pictured is the Elias leather pants from Caboodle. You can get these amazingly well-made pants for free by hanging around the lucky letter boards at the store. The group is free to join so wear your tag proudly, keep your fingers crossed and hope that luck is on your side. The pants come in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and comes with an alpha layer and a shoe base as well so if you don’t feel like wearing shoes but don’t want to go totally barefoot either this is most certainly another viable (and stylish) option.

Aside from beach sims, I love rummaging through interesting looking stores. Ever shopped inside an elephant? If no, then maybe you’d like to check out Schadenfreude. I adopted my cuddly three headed pal for 50L and there are other cute gachas that you can play at the store. Now…to see if I can arrange some play dates with Love and Kathryn’s pups. If you’re looking to play more gacha, you can get this cute Clio fitted mesh hairstyle from Oleander for 75 L per pull. Gachas are so addictive!

Finally, the skin I’m wearing is Deluxe Body Factory’s October group gift called Johanna. She comes in a pretty chai tone with both classic skin and Omega body and face appliers included in the pack along with a brow shaper and an alpha layer to hide your system lashes. I love the detailing of the eyebrows and all of the beauty marks on the skin. Deluxe Body Factory has a 299L join fee and there are two other group gifts to pick up this month as well as midnight mania and lucky letter boards open only to members. A great deal all in all.

Sweet Memories

Snapshot_005
With all of the excitement going on this weekened with the Designer 2.0 program launch and the opening of the new Fabulously Free in SL Info Hub, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sneak a post in, but I am glad I found a little bit of time to share this bit of news!

My Caboodle Shaleen Dress in the blue floral print (available in mesh XXS-L sizes) can be found as a free Getsuga Sim Hunt prize along with the ATTIC Elfman Vintage Camera shown.  There are a few different stores  participating and I believe there are 12 prizes in total, but you can find this information along with an example of the hunt icon at the landing point at the Getsuga Sim! All prizes are free and this hunt will run until the 16th of September.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Glam Affair Skin Applier called Viktoria that I am wearing today on my Catwa Helena Mesh Head.  I picked this beautiful applier up in an asia skin tone (normally lighter than I usually wear, but I really like it!) on Friday for 50L as a Fifty Linden Friday offer and I just checked before publishing this post (Sunday night) to make sure it is still there for anyone who may still be interested.  This is a time sensitive offer and may not be available.

It’s Fear The Walking Dead night – Gotta run!
