C’mon Let Me Ride Your Bicycle

HOLA
Hello there Fabulouses! It’s been a while since I have pulled my bike out and taken it for a ride in RL.  In fact, I can’t remember if I still own one.  It may be in the back of the garage somewhere!  All of this wonderful warm weather is sure opening me up to the idea to look for it, but today I decided to go for a ride inworld instead.  Here when I crash into things and fall off, it doesn’t hurt :D.

Race You to FaMESHed!

My casual summer look today is put together with three group gifts that I had picked up at FaMESHed!  I have done a couple of posts previously [HERE] and [HERE] to tell you all about the amazing lot of FREE group gifts available during this Anniversary round, and will be available until the end of the month.

The Three Gifts I’m Wearing Today Are:

  • COCO Gift CropTee:  Sizes Included – Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass & Physique, Belleza Freya & Isis.
  • Le Fil Casse Monday Skirt:  Fitted for Maitreya – Comes in White, red, navy, black & rose gold.
  • RAMA Feeling Alpha Necklace:  Comes in Black, Gold, Silver, Rose Gold & Copper.

The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so if you haven’t made time to stop in and grab all of the free group gifts – you really should!

The Moon Sees Me

The Moon Sees Me
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I have had such a mixed up day, nothing terrible, I just keep getting my schedule wrong. So I decided to retreat into my favorite alternate reality, Second Life, and share a few lovely free April group gifts with you. First, this witchy tube top from Oubliette. Then these kick ass unisex kicks from Versov.

The Top – Gleefully I picked up this “boob tube” top from Oubliette. It is black and reads “WITCH” across the chest. It’s the perfect warm weather top for the little witchy side of my personality. I love how cute it is on, not too tiny but still a tube top. To get your free copy head over to the Oubliette shop and join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group if you’re not already a member. The group is currently free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Shoes – Run, don’t walk over to Versov and pick up these highly detailed unisex shoes. They are a free group gift at Versov, and the Versov group is free to join at this time. The shoes come in several male and female sizes, and have a color change hud that lets you pick between several preset colors for 9 individual parts of the shoe. I got the impression that the Versov group may not always be free to join, so don’t wait!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Male, Female), Signature, Slink (Male, Female), TMP (Male, Female), Unrigged, Aestethic

Here are the details, enjoy!

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails ~Elizabeth Edwards

 Sometimes in life and SLife you just have to force yourself to give up on what’s not working and move towards a different goal.  It can be a a life changing decision or it can be something as small as knowing when to give up on a photography location that isn’t working. I must have stood in the same spot, switching angles, and lighting and poses for what seemed like an eternity yesterday even though I loved the sim I was on – when finally after trying and trying, I had to force myself to move to a different sim.  All I needed to do was adjust my sails to the Yasmina sim, and it felt like it all came together.  I think it was probably just one of those days, but I sure wish I wasn’t so stubborn to try something different earlier!

Love, stop babbling and get to the free stuff

COCO has such an amazing selection of free group gifts, and they have just released another!  The Scoop Neck Crop Top is available as a free group gift with a free group join in several mesh body sizes as listed below and it also includes a five colour texture change HUD (Navy, red, tan, black and white)

Yes Please, All Them All

Yes Please! All Them All!

Hello Fabulouses!  I just can’t quite make up my mind which sweet to choose, but this is Second Life and our clothes always seem to fit no matter what these days, so I’m just going to have ALL THEM ALL!  This little cafe with all the treats is right beside the FabFree Info Hub on The Wash Sim, and you are welcome to hang out there any old time you like.

Where can you get this great dress for free?

I’ll tell you where!  At Petite Mort, you can find this darling Lavender Serene Lace Dress as a free lucky board prize.  You are required to join the Petite Mort inworld group to participate, however the group is still free to join.  The free group join may change in the future, as I remember there used to be a fee before the move, so make sure you join and stay in it just in case!

It is a little hard to see the arms, as I have added a sweater from my inventory by COCO, however it is sleeveless making this a great dress for the upcoming spring weather! (I hope it’s upcoming…  I see I am under another severe weather advisory for this afternoon again -.-).

Sizes Included:

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

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].
