I just had to…

Stuck_002

I just had to try it…

… just to see if it really happened like in the movies. Yup. It does. Stuck! But that’s okay. A friendly passer-by helped me out with a bit of water from their water bottle and all was well in the world again. (That really does unstick you!)

Sales!

Speaking of stuck, since I was stuck inside with all this cold weather I decided to check out some sales. I heard that Vision had a sale on their gift cards (currently 50% off gift cards until the 30th) and was tempted enough to mosey on down to the store. While I was there, I discovered that if I joined their VIP group for 250L, I would be rewarded with 100L of in-store credit each month on the 1st. This is cumulative, plus you get access to the lucky letter boards.

So I got my in-store credit, and saved that up. In just less than a week I’ll be able to get another 100L on January 1st! So now is the perfect time to join the VIP group. And then I hit the lucky letter boards…

Getting lucky…

I got lucky at Vision pretty quick as my letter came up and I snagged the jacket and top you see in the picture. The jacket and top are separate so you could mix and match if  you want which is nice.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Addicted To Siss Boom

SissBoomRose60L I have a problem…

I can’t walk through the events wall at Siss Boom without buying something!  What can I say?  Her soft, feminine fashion style just calls to me.  Today I picked up the Persuasion Dress in Rose as shown my avatar.  For a limited time it is just 60L, and well worth every little penny!  A Maitreya Lara size was not included, but the Slink Physique worked on me :).  Try a demo!

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha layer
  • Slink Physique

You’ll find this dress, and several other items on sale this week at the main entrance on the events wall.

btw…  My frosty breath is not an after photo edit.   The Mill sim, where I took my photo today –  auto sends it out when you land as a free gift!  It even breathes.  How fun is that?

No Pants Are The Best Pants

COCOfront
Hi there Fabulouses!  When newcomers ask me where they should go to start their inventories, COCO is always at the top of the list because with a free group join you can pick up several high quality items ranging from casual clothing to formalwear, accessories, shoes and even costumes!

NEW THIS WEEK

This week COCO has added two new free group gifts to their GIANT wall of VIP treasures in Halloween theme.  Both items are compatible with Maitreya and Slink (Physique & Hourglass) mesh bodies (may work on others too – I didn’t try).

  1. Halloween Gift – Oversized Sweatshirt
  2. Halloween Gift – Bunny Backpack

I purchased the Thigh High Sock Boots while I was there because I liked how it looked in their vendor ad.  What can I say…  no pants ARE the best pants!

He Loves To Hate

Snapshot_003

Friend or Foe?

My real life dog just loves to hate one particular cat on my block.  That darn cat was strutting around right outside the front window where he watched her, certainly teasing him on purpose but he thought she wanted to be friends.  Finally one day, someone had left the door open to bring some groceries in which made for the opportune moment for him to make his off-leash move.  He dashed out the door, scared the fur off the cat and chased her around the fence.

FOE!

Now… he just wanted to get to know each other, but this cat was not having it.  I ran out to bring him back, and heard “SWAT!  HISS” and then “YIPE YIPE YIPE!“.  He came running back home, unharmed but with his tail between his legs and a new perception on his feelings for her.  Even when I point the cat out now (who is still strutting her stuff at the window btw), he wants nothing to do with her!

Get on with it, Love!

Now, enough of my jibber jabber – let’s talk freebies!  I couldn’t help myself with the story, because as I sit here writing this blog entry… The cat is outside, and the dog – in the window.

The brown jersey knit dress you see me wearing in my photo today is a free group gift by COCO.  Compatible with Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, this casual treat is even more cute from the back as it offers a cut out wrapped design.  I have included the vendor ad below so that you can see it.

COCO is always free to join, offering a ton of gifts in the VIP section, including the gift Serena recently showed [HERE].

Blueberries at the Gulf of Lune

Cabin Days_001

A friend has been taking me exploring and I’ve found some beautiful sims lately this way. Just this week Gulf of Lune made my list as one of my top favorites (thank you dear friend for showing it to me). It’s a wetlands recreation complete with elk and ducks and country cabins.

New gift at Blueberry.

When I saw the new free to all gift at Blueberry (hurry and get it before it’s gone!), I knew I had my perfect chance to take some pictures at Gulf of Lune. The lacy top was pretty and sexy, but also sort of has that flexible look that could go casual, racy, urban, or country, and I used the (amazingly generous) texture change hud to choose a pretty country blue and pose on one of the cabins at the Sim.

Sizes included:

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

A Bonus!

Not only does the free Blueberry gift include the top in a long version, but it also includes the gift in a short version that you could easily use for a bralette. And with so many options on the color change palette, you’d never run out of lingerie styles! I’ve included a picture below of the “short” version of the gift as well so you can see it. It comes in all the same sizes as the “long” version.

Cabin Days 2_001

I couldn’t resist…

… showing you just how much versatility you will be getting with this free gift. This is a picture of the texture change palette that comes with the new Blueberry gift top. As you can see you will get the texture change colors for the top in both “lace” and “plain” as well as some metallic colors. You’ll also be able to change the colors of the ties on the shirt. The possibilities are almost endless! This is a very generous free gift! Be sure to get this one before it disappears!

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂

Nefarious Plans

ZigZag 1

Even villains have day jobs.

Neckwarmer Man blew my cover… again. So the earmuffs are gone. But thankfully KoKoLoRes Hair has out a new group gift for January, which means I have a new hairdo. Just call me “Spike.” That old moniker just wasn’t me. And I think I like the name Dillon too… after the hair… as my other Alias. Got to have a lot of aliases when your in the business of crime. Crime and coffee that is. And I’ll be serving up your coffee at the local coffee and tea bar here at Tanya’s.

The shirt off the rack.

They say you have to blend in. Look normal. Especially if you’re running the day shift at a coffee bar when Neckwarmer man is hot on your trail. So I stopped by MOoh! and picked up the latest FabFree Gift. I didn’t even have to steal it, as it was already FREE. Can you believe that? They just leave this stuff lying around. It even came in four colors, fitmesh, and sizes for Maitreya and Slink bodies.

On the lookout…

I know that guy will never give up… wait… did that customer just take an extra creamer for his coffee? See! There are worse villains than me! At least I serve the coffee hot while I plot my nefarious plans. Okay, semi-hot. I don’t want the customers getting spoiled.
