Tranquil Lavender

Snapshot_003
In Pru’s post [HERE], it would seem she was conjuring up her “inner fierceness”, while today –  I was seeking just the opposite in my search of silence, and tranquility.  I think I have found that sense of repose in my visit to The Summer Trace Sim.  While I  tiptoed through the warm  powdery sand, my new cotton frock blew freely in the salty sea air as the cooling ocean waves lapped gently at my feet.  I managed to collect a few fancy shells on the shore, and tucked them into my pocket. No idea what I will do with them… they were just pretty :).  If this isn’t serenity…  I don’t know what is.

The Cotton Frock

I was glad to have found this darling Edi Dress in Lavender by Belle Epoque as a free gift at The Vintage Fair as it was perfect for my Second Life outing today!  You can find this right at Belle Epoque’s display, priced at 0L with no need to join the group.  This dress is specifically designed for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, however it may work with others too.  Give it a try – it’s free afterall!

Spelling 101

Snapshot_007School Is In Session

Hey there FabFree!  In my last post I showed you a group gift by MonaLISA [HERE], and as I was digging through the rest of the items I picked up at the same time, I came across this great business suit that had a real teachery kind of feel to me.  It reminded me that “someone” was picking on my Canadian spelling last week in blog comments posted [HERE] and I had threatened to school him on the subject.

I honestly have no idea why we have different spellings for the same words between Canada and the USA. It’s probably one of those things we’ll never figure out with history going back and forth… Just saying…  I wasn’t wrong!

Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit

The MonaLISA Business Mini Skirt & Suit Jacket both come in S-XL mesh sizes with alpha layers.  As I mentioned in my previous post regarding MonaLISA, the group is 100L to join.

Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On

On my avatar, I am also wearing the latest group gift shoe offer by Phedora!  The Marian Heels have been added in a full fatpack of colours to the ever growing group gift section at their shop.  With a one time 300L join fee, you can pick up several fantastic pairs of shoes that are compatible with many types of feet.

In A Hurry

As Edi mentioned in her post earlier today [HERE], it’s Fifty Linden Friday… and if you are really quick, you can still stop by Maxi Gossamer and pick up their Fifty Linden Friday offer for today.  It’s a little tough to see in my post, but you can buy their Love Catcher Heart Necklace and Earring set for 50L, just today!

Class dismissed!

Socking It To Me

Snapshot_003I Don’t Understand

There is one thing about men that I will never understand… Actually there are several things, but one strikes me particularly hard today – Why oh why, do the socks go on the floor beside the laundry hamper?  I even moved the hamper where he was tossing them last week, thinking to myself “Ok…  if I can’t beat him, I need to join him“, but no…  The socks are still beside…  the…  laundry … hamper.

I am considering that perhaps there is some kind of negative magnetic force that keeps them from going inside the basket.  What else could it possibly be?  I am reading up on the subject…  “How To Understand Him”.  Wish me luck.

At Least One Thing Was Clear

One thing that was really clear to me today was that I was really glad I picked up the Zenovia Outfit as a free group gift at MonaLISA.  I joined this group for 100L some time in December to take advantage of a lucky board prize [blogged here] that is still available, and stopped in today to check out what was available in the way of group offers.  There are tons of group gifts, a midnight mania board, and a few group lucky boards too.

The Zenovia Outfit all goes on in one click and includes the skirt, top, and cardigan.  It comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the alphas in the case that you need them.

Like My Hair?

I think I jumped up and down when I saw that Truth was participating in this new round of The Epiphany with three gorgeous long hairstyles at just 50L per play!  I am wearing Wind today, and can’t wait to get my hands on the other two as well!  All of the braids and waves are done perfectly.

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!  She …  Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting fun.  My shooting aim of course is horrible…  The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun…  If I am aiming at them, they are pretty safe.  It’s the ambulance windshield right next to him that needs to worry…  or the tree WAY over to the left.  It’s a good thing Carson just follows around behind me shooting them all dead.  Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…  but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!  The new 22 piece prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:  Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL  The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

Someday My Ship Will Sail

My Ship Will Come In

My spirit hungers to go on, someday my ship will sail

This smexy, curve-hugging dress is the latest free group gift from Entice. It comes in black, gray, and a yummy dark red via texture-changing HUD, all with a black belt and trim. You can mix and match the skirt and top to get the look you like. Sizes include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza Freya, Venus, and Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

My spiky, strappy stilettos (Maitreya only) are a free gift from LYBRA at The Crossroads Event. You can’t see it from this angle, but those heels could seriously put someone’s eye out! The current round of The Crossroads will be ending on January 28th, so be sure to stop by and pick up the fabulous gifts – see Carson’s post for some great menswear items and mine for a pair of must-have winter boots.

Last but not least, my necklace and earrings are free gifts from Chop Zuey. No group is required; just on click on each to pay 0L. You can also pick up the set in gold, which was previously shown here by Astrid.

How Do You Call Your Loverboy?

Snapshot_001
Good evening FabFree Readers!  If you are in the market for a little something sexy to grab your partners attention, make sure you take a trip to Salt & Pepper to check out their most recent group gift!  There is a 150L fee to join this group, however there are several gifts available in the VIP shelves at the back of the store such as these shown my Astrid [HERE], and [HERE].

Come Here Loverboy!

Feast your eyes upon this very sexy halter neck Babydoll.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to wear sheer or opaque and change the colour between black, ivory and pink.  If you can believe it, this is actually the opaque version.  If you want to turn up the juice, although I bet you won’t need to – just flip the switch to sheer ;).

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Isis & Freya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Oh Loverboy?…

There’s more!  These Gadhra Metal Leg Wraps are also a free group gift as well and come with a HUD that allows for a few colours and metal change.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Flying By the Seat of My Pants

Flying by the Seat of My Pants

Ready For Lift Off

I have to agree with Pru and Carson that something is just not right this week. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the moon, or what, but I’ve had a HECK of a week so far, and it’s not over yet!

To help get over my funky mood, Finnoula (my dog) and I headed over to the beautiful Winter Trace sim for a little fun in the snow. Turns out sledding is a lot harder than I thought, and I was so scared that I just closed my eyes and tried to hold on! Sadly, I wound up going so fast that I lost control and went flying through the air in a most ungraceful manner. Poor Finn couldn’t keep up (or kept her distance on purpose?) and didn’t care at all that I had completely humiliated myself with a face-plant at the bottom of the hill. She ran off to chase some deer, leaving me alone to pick myself up… along with my dignity! 😛

Coming in For a Landing

While I may not have landed on my feet, I was still glad to be wearing these awesome boots! Belle Epoque has set them out as a free gift at the current round of The Crossroads, and you can pick them up for 0L right across from the landing spot. They’re sized to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and the detailing is really gorgeous. There are several other gifts available at this round of The Crossroads, 2 of which were shown here by Carson. 🙂

Moon Amore has put out this “lovely shirt” as a holiday gift for group members. It comes with a texture-change HUD that includes 8 different colors and is sized to fit Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. The group is only 30L to join, and past group gifts are still available for you to scoop up.

Last by not least, my choker is the latest group gift from CHAIN. Choose from silver or gold metal options with the included HUD. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to fit.

3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

Risqué

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! Erratic, who is known for some of the sexiest, best fitting lingerie out there has a new group gift in store for their inworld group members!  This group is 100L to join, but I would have paid much more than that for this hot item, so it was a no brainer for me, and now I can look forward to future gifts by staying in the group too!

Get Risqué

If you like the sexy bralette I am wearing today, you can teleport over to Erratic and head straight to the Risqué Luxury Lingerie section where you can pick up their new group gift that includes this very feminine and foxy, made for Maitreya top that could be worn as a sheer top or as lingerie with your favourite panties.  It fits so snug to the body, that it appears to be applied right on, but it is indeed mesh.

Get Risqué in Colour

In my photo I am showing you the noir version, but it comes in all of the colours listed below:

  • Noir
  • Crimson
  • Frost
  • Ivory
  • Lilac
  • Mint
  • Plum
  • Rose

How to get your gift…

Either activate your Erratic group tag, or click the gift sign and look for the link in local chat to join.

TIP:  If you are ever having trouble joining a group that a group gift is set to (depending on your viewer – I am on Firestorm), instead of searching around for a group join sign, you can simply right click your mouse and “edit” the group gift giver.  In the General Tab you can find which group the gift is set to.  Click on that group and join it!  This doesn’t work every time…  but most times it does :).

In Denial

Snapshot_001
We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!
