That’s what I thought

FabFree: That's what I thought

Hey there Fabulouses!  I have a couple of really nice free things to tell you about today, and I have news about some awesome 50L boots.  My whole look today is uber budget friendly, and I think… uber cute too!

Jersey Knit

At Safira, you’ll find a wall of free group gifts and on that wall, you’ll find the Renee Belted Dress in grey jersey knit!  You can choose to wear the belt with it, or without for an even more casual look.  I think this might be cute with printed leggings too, worn as a long top.  The Safira inworld group is free to join – grab all those gifts!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

A Glam Kitten

The voluminous Glam Kitten “do” is another one of the fatpacks of hairstyles in the daily rotation of midnight mania board prizes at Besom.  There are different styles in the board every day, and they just keep coming!

Sweet 50L Boots

I have no idea if this was a FLF or a Saturday Sale offer… but still today, you can find the Friday Lennon Boots w/ texture change socks at the landing point at White River Farms today in the colour storm!  As I am unsure how long this offer will last, it’s best to rush right over if you’d like to partake!

Linda, honey… just listen to me

FabFree: Linda, honey... just listen to me
Hey there Fabulouses!  I may have bookmarks in three books right now and I have stacks and stacks of to-reads, but I am always jotting down little lists of books I need to pick up.  One book reading essential is a pair of comfy socks, and Friday has just put a lovely group gift pair out in the group notices of the White River Farms group that I am here to tell you about today as well as a fabulous gacha item by C’est La Vie and a 50L hairstyle by Elikatira.
White River Farms VIP Group Gift - February 2019!

Really honey – listen to me, even if your name isn’t Linda…

I have mentioned before that you should totally be a part of the White River Farms group (HERE) and I really hope that everyone signed up when it was free, but now that it’s 100L it’s still worth every little penny with monthly group gifts from Elikatira, Friday and White River Co. in a rotation!  Recently Friday sent out the Honey Socks to the White River Farms group (you’ll find it in the past notices!) and they are just adorable with the faces on the knees and the sweet pastel pink top.  AGAIN…  this is not in the store… you’ll find it in the past notices of the White River Farms inworld group – secondlife:///app/group/600afe02-78d6-180e-f6aa-afc3d9b4e07d/about

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Flat, High & Boot
  • Slink Hourglass Flat, High & Boot

Other Affordable Finds!

To complete my comfy book reading ensemble, I have also added the C’est la vie Maitreya-fitted Iro Sweater that is just 67L per play at the C’est La Vie store in a gacha machine.  This machine is great… because with every play, you’ll get one of these comfy oversized sweaters.  No little trinkets or chokers lol.. the machine is just full of different colours of this sweater and the rares are floral ;).

My relaxed braid is Elikatira’s Maeve which is just 50L per colour pack as a limited time offer.  I believe this is for the Saturday sale, but it is on sale today still at the landing point if you hurry!

ps.  If you aren’t sure what I am talking about or why I am calling you all Linda, here’s the youtube video!  It’s an oldie, but a goodie.

Hello Fabulouses!  When I saw that Fetch had a new group gift out called “Love Pyjamas”, I knew it was meant just for me… it had my name in the title!  I’ll tell you about those in my blog post today as well as where you can find this cute shoulder length hairstyle for just 75L in a whole fatpack of colours!

Of course, you can wear them too…

At Fetch when you join the inworld group for 50L you can pick up the new group gift called Love Pyjamas that includes the solid bottoms and dotty top in three colours (white, pink and blue).  This sweet little set is fitted to Maitreya and is perfect for lounging around the house… or wherever lol.

Messy hair, don’t care!

Besom is where you’ll find the disheveled hairstyle called Hylde in a whole fatpack of colours for just 75L!  It is labelled as a sale price for Saturday Sale, but it’s still there tonight if you’d like to grab it!

Deep Pockets

FabFree: Deep Pockets

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I dunno where everyone is today lol, so I have another blog post for you! Isn’t this Thea Cardi by C’est la vie cute?  The fuzzy and warm one piece outfit includes the dress and cardi with deep pockets for your hands.  Well, don’t be afraid to fall in love with it, because it’s a group gift!  You can grab this sweet Thea Cardi in red as a free group gift when you activate your C’est la vie inworld group tag!

I know what you are thinking….

You are thinking that you have picked up sweaters and jackets with hands that are supposed to be in the pockets before and when you wear it inworld it looks rigid, your AO interferes and it seems that the item is really only any good for a photo standing still, but it’s totally not the case with this item!!  This Cardigan is animated to hold your hands inside the pockets and worked beautifully with my AO, so I could walk through this winter wonderland and have toasty warm hands at the same time, looking quite natural about it.   You’ll love it! 🙂

The C’est la vie inworld group is 200L to join, but there is a wall of group gifts to obtain once you join and well.. this item alone – is way worth the one time fee!

Sizes Included:

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

Hearts and Harnesses

Hearts and Harnesses

Hey Hey Fab Free!  I’m rolling in lace again – and I really can’t complain!  I’ve been exploring the lingerie aisles of SL recently, and I’m not 100% sure this is lingerie, because I mean….I would wear it out in SL!  What can I say, I’ve got a bit of a different sense of style… Did you notice?  Well…if you’ve got it flaunt it!

Bish, Please!

Toxic Bish is one of those stores that you find a whole lotta free inside. There are midnight madness boards, lucky letter boards, and a pile of free group gifts!  I found both the top and bottom of this outfit in the group gift area, and I figured I’d put them together and see what larks.  I am highly enjoying the harness addition to the shorts (harnesses are so hot right now, right Pru?).  You can pick up both the top and bottom of this outfit at Toxic Bish, by joining the group for free and clicking to your heart’s content.

Short and Top Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Top includes TMP size

Can’t Say No to Glitter!

I found a little sweet addition to my kinda intense outfit at C’est La Vie.  Join the group for free, and pay the vendor 1L – it will be returned to you along with the gift!  I picked up the Star Hairpins that come in a plethora of colours.  You can move them about so they fit with any of your hairstyles.  Cute!

To thine own self be true!

Monday is Cancelled

Oh, hey there… you found me.

Yeah, I’m still sitting here drinking my coffee. To be honest, I was completely unable to adult today. Sure, I had tons of stuff to do, but I didn’t get any of it done. I’ll be sorry tomorrow. :-/

But for now, I just gonna sit here quietly and enjoy my coffee.

Coffee and Comfort

I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything done today soon as I put on this cozy outfit. The Parka Dress is the latest group gift from S@BBiA, and it comes in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer. I love not having to make decisions – like what size to wear – early in the morning.

To keep my feet toasty, I added the Baby It’s Cold Outside boots from Entice. You can pick up a pair for free by joining the SL Frees & Offers in-world group. The boots come in rigged and unrigged versions with an alpha layer so they should fit just about everyone.

Ok, I guess it’s time to pack it up and go inside. In the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all, tomorrow is another day.” 🙂

I Wear My Heart On My Socks

Snapshot_006Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s a long weekend for me, and I’m taking it easy with a cup  of tea and some comfy attire to catching up on emails, skimming through gossip on facebook and pinning a bunch of crafty things that I’ll probably never actually do.

Pull Your Socks Up

Ok, I’ll admit it…  I did steal another one of his shirts.  What can I say – it’s so soft, and it still smells like him (sighs), but these adorable Lea Socks in both red and white versions are courtesy of  C’est La Vie as they have just added them to the ever growing VIP group gift shelf.  As a bonus, this group is free to join!  These “love”ly little socks are compatible with system bodies and several different mesh bodies as shown on the vendor ad below.

Step inside and come closer

Step inside and come closer

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”

Have a seat.

The cushions are comfortable, there’s sushi on the table if you’re so inclined and please, don’t mind the knife…  -ahem- Seeing as it is the haunting season, I couldn’t help but try to be just a little bit creepy. In all seriousness, though, I do have some treats for you today dear readers and if you’re ready to let’s go! First up is the brand new Fabulously Free in SL group gift by M0oH! Now, this store has long been on my bucket list of places to visit thanks to all the wonderful posts by Love, one such example {HERE}, and a free group gift proved to be a strong lure. As soon as I saw the notice I hurried down to the main store to get my grab on and I was not disappointed.

So what are the details?

The gift, dubbed the Thea Outfit, comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) for both the cropped sweater and the skirt. You’ll also receive not one but three alpha layers to help you with the fitting, one for the top and skirt combined and the other two for each piece of clothing respectively. What I find really great about this outfit, aside from the fact that it’s very well made and that the way it’s textured is to die for, is that you’re given the option to keep the outfit intact or to wear it as separates. Just thinking of experimenting with different combinations gives me joy and more so when you take into consideration the fact that this outfit is completely free. All you have to do is activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag! Not in the group yet? Well, copy and paste the following link into the local chat inworld;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about then click on the link and there you go!

If you want to know more about MO0H! and the great store credit program that they have going on at the store, visit some of Love’s blog posts for more information:

More treats!

Hmm…lets go from the top down, shall we? The bat headband that I’m wearing in the picture is the newest group gift by C’est La Vie. Not only is it adorable and a great fit for the festive season, it comes with a pose and resize scripts as well, making it easy to edit. What’s more, permission is set to copy so you can make backups before you embark on any editing.  The C’est La Vie group is free to join and you can pick up other group gifts while you’re there scooping up this one as well.

Do you love advent calendars? I’m certainly looking forward to Christmas time but Alice Project is giving you a little taste early. As part of their Halloween Massacre Special, you’ll be able to get one free hairstyle in fifteen special colors from the 25th to the 31st of this month. These gleefully macabre blood streaked hairstyles change out daily but don’t worry if you’ve missed one as you’ll be able to buy hair packs consisting of 5 tones for 50L if you want to complete your collection.

And ah yes, footwear. I’ve always had a weakness for quirkiness and boots and this pair from Wicked satisfies both those fancies. The Quinn heels (made for Slink high feet only) feature a wonderfully detailed lace up front and skull patterns so that you’ll stay in step with the season. Go to the Wicked store and hunt out a skeletal hand  for just 1L or just buy the pair for 25L from the shopper’s option that has been set out. The shopper’s option prim is also a skeletal hand that’s placed near the hunt poster. The Jeepers Creepers hunt runs until the 31st of October.

Step in and come closer

Oh, but I’m not done yet!

Head on down to Trick or Treat Lane to peruse the variety of seasonal goodies from a number of merchants. While you’re there, don’t forget to snap up the free gift that the majority of these awesome designers have set out and you’ll find yourself with a bag full of accessories, furniture, and even skin! The one I’m wearing in the pictures above is called Berry, a gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins that comes in the skin tone Dust. In the package, you’ll receive the system skin with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Slink hand and feet appliers and Omega body appliers also with cleavage/no cleavage options. Between this and the Klaasje fantasy skin blogged {Here} also from 7 Deadly s{K}ins I might just go drow permanently. The Trick or Treat Lane event though lasts until the 1st of November.

Windows to the soul…

To complete the look are the Hazelnut eyes from Out of Orbit. I tend to go for blue or grey eyes so this was a nice and free change up. These eyes are part of the EnMashed in Fall hunt and aside from the system eyes, you’ll also receive mesh ones with an alpha layer and Huds for Genesis Heads and Heads that use the Omega system. Find the bat that’s hiding in the store and buy for 0L. The EnMashed in Fall hunt is running until the 15th of November.

Ready? Pose!

New types of hunts and games are always something that I look out for and the Hocus Pocus event that is running until the 4th of November was something that caught my attention. You’ll need to go to a participating merchant for the Hud, Elephante Poses is one such merchant, and once you get the teleport list visit the stores to find a magic bottle. Once found say hocus pocus in local chat (game is case sensitive so remember all small letters) and depending on your luck and some magic you may get the item for free. If you’re not so lucky (you’ll get one chance per 24 hours) but still fancy the prize, you can buy it for 50L. That’s what happened to me for this Psycho pose set from Elephante but since I do love the poses from this store and was so tickled by the little prop knife that’s included with the set I got it anyway.

And that wraps it up. So many events going on this season and more besides…what are you still doing here? -Brandishes knife- Off you go.

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
 For who goes up your winding stair
     -can ne’er come down again.”

C’est la Monday

C'est la Monday

Hello Fab Free, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a serious Monday! Thankfully, there’s always some retail therapy available in Second Life. I think it’s definitely true that shopping is a form of therapy, even in a virtual setting. I know I feel better when I get to buy new things. hehehe That being said, it’s always better when the stuff you acquire is FREE. **Note Added 1/19/15**Here’s more proof this was a total case of the Monday’s! Somehow I missed that our lovely Julianna had already shown this great jacket, be sure to check out her post here also.  
C'est la Monday 1 This pretty leather jacket from Virtual Diva Couture is their current group gift. I love the sort of dark mauve color of the leather, I think it make the jacket very feminine, while keeping an edgy style. The gift is FREE, you just need to join the Virtual Diva Couture in world group, which is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and a fitted mesh version.

Another super cute group gift are these pretty star hairpins. This gift from C’est la Vie includes several hairpins in gold and two silver versions, each with a different colored star. I really like this gift because cute hair accessories are not something you see often. The gift is FREE to all C’est la Vie group members, and the group is FREE to join as well.

Here’s to a better Monday, Enjoy!
