Luncheon on the Grass

Coming Soon

If you’re an art history nerd, you may have gotten the reference in my title. Yes, this post is inspired by one of my favourite paintings in art history, Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, translated to Luncheon on the Grass painted by Édouard Manet. As much as I studied this painting in school, I never thought I would (unknowingly) create a photo in SL that looks a bit like it! Of course, I need some 19th-Century men in the photo too, and I’m not posing in the nude, but it’s still a classic art history tradition to show people eating a picnic on the grass. I am having my picnic solo today, but I definitely have enough food to share around!

Oh yeah, I need to get to freebies now and stop ranting about art history. The first gift seen in my picnic shot are the classy Marilena Shoes. These come in a fatpack of colours and you can customize each part of the shoe including that fabric fold at the top of the feet. You can grab it as a group gift at StephaneL, and their group currently costs 15 Linden to join. 

Full with Free

Here’s an up-close shot of more free gifts I am showcasing in my picnic shot today. 

Solo Picnic Closeup

  • The hairstyle is the latest group gift at Firelight! Their group is free to join, and you get a number of free hairstyles with this group. The hair includes a colour hud that allows you to change the style to several natural tones. 
  • My earrings and necklace set are a free gift at RealEvil Industries. They have many gifts out for free at their store in addition to this gold and pearl set,  and the group is free to join. You can also grab these fashionable accessories for free on the Marketplace
  • My blue eyeshadow and purple lipsticks comes from the lucky board prizes at Trend. Their group currently costs 250 Linden to join, and they often give out gifts, lucky boards and hundreds of store credits. Both the lipstick and the eyeshadow are sized for Catwa HD, Lelutka Evolution, and Genus, and they also include BOM layers. 

I’m going to go enjoy my lunch on the grass now, FabFree. I might even call up a friend because there is way too much pie and cheese for me to eat by myself. 

Until next time!

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I picked up a few group gifts recently that got me thinking about makeup. I love makeup. While I don’t believe makeup is something most people need, I do believe in the absolute fun of wearing it. I think it’s creative, and even artful at times. That said, I do feel pretty, and I think my look for this post is both fun and creative. The group gifts I’ve used to create this look come mostly from Ives Beauty, YOSHI Eyes, and POUT! Keep reading for all the details.

Ives Beauty 

My pretty lip color is part of a generous free group gift lip applier set group gift at Ives Beauty called Ravenous Tint. It comes in a range of nude pinks and purples. The best part, until August 21st the Ives Beauty group is free to join. You know what that means, don’t wait!

Appliers Included: Catwa HD Lips, Genus, Lelutka Evolution

YOSHI Eyes

Purple is one of my very favorite colors. I can remember wishing I had lavender eyes when I was a little girl. So in a way these bright blue/purple hued group gift eyes from YOSHI are a childhood dream come true. The YOSHI store group is free to join. In this free gift you’ll get appliers, a pair of mesh eyes, and BOM eyes.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Omega, Lelutka (BOM & Mesh Eyes also Included) 

POUT! 

Stars have always been attractive to me. So I couldn’t help but want this pretty set of little star face freckles from POUT!, especially considering they are a free group gift. I think they look sweet and give a touch of whimsy to your makeup. These stars come in several colors and are BOM only. The POUT! group is free to join as well.
