The longest day has just begun

The longest day has just begun

Hi there! I went shopping at Cosmopolitan and found presents! And I paired them with a pretty FabFree gift to show off a whole bunch of free! Nothing wrong with that. And then I decided to hang out by some stairs. That’s totally logical, right? And of course I threw in a nonsensical title and a bunch of sentence fragments. So pretty much nothing new for me. I’m sure that the run on sentences will be along shortly, don’t you worry!

Everything Cosmopolitan 

After the billions of free gifts at the last round of Cosmopolitan, I wasn’t expecting anything when I heading over to do some light window shopping and demoing. But I was pleasantly surprised! There is an easel on either side of the door and each displays a free group gift. You’ll need to join the free group (there’s a group joiner right under each gift) to get them. On one side is this lovely free dress from Miimikri. I love the lace detail on the top and the pretty ruffles. It comes in this pretty soft color and in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The gift on the other side is a pack of free poses from Nina Rosario! I love me some poses and this pack of five of them is really nice.

Shiny Things

Every time I peruse the FabFree group gift listing I’m amazed by all of the awesome things on it. Today I picked up this pretty free jewelry set from Beloved Jewelry. It includes the necklace as well as earrings. You can only see a little bit of one of the earrings peaking out of my hair, but it’s literally the bottom of the necklace (the biggest circle and the tassel) in earring form. Head over to the store and you’ll see what I’m badly describing. Just active your Fabulously Free in SL group tag (or join for free if you’re not already in the group) and give the vendor a click.

I want you to have it all

I want you to have it all

Have you noticed that I have this habit of blogging events on their last day? I don’t know what that’s about. I guess I just feel like I need one last hurrah with the fabulous gifts before it’s over or something. So today I bring you a couple more Cosmopolitan gifts. But wait, there’s more! I also have a great new gift that just came out last night…

Goodbye Cosmopolitan

The current round of Cosmopolitan ends today, so this is the last chance to pick up all of those awesome freebies. There is a group joiner at the door, and the group is required to get all of the gifts. But of course the group is free to join so that’s no big deal. I’m wearing 2 more of the gifts here:

  • The necklace by adorsy is rigged, which I love, although only for Maitreya. It’s a super cute style that I can see myself wearing a lot.
  • My outfit is the gift from EB. I know that I’m not showing all of the skirt but it’s tight, short, and kinda ombres at the bottom to the same pink as the top. I love how high the waist of the skirt is – it almost looks like a dress from the back but then the front shows a little skin in between. The skirt and top are separate pieces and each comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique.

Hello Chain

My earrings are the newest free group gift from Chain. You’ve really gotta go pick them up, they are even prettier in-world. The detail is just amazing. It also comes with a HUD to change them to 15 different metal colors. Chain’s group is 100L to join and the wall of group gifts is now up to 10, plus this new one. What a bargain.

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Hi there! I’ve maybe gone a little overboard with the flowers today – they’re on my dress, in my hair, and of course all over my background. But I can’t help it. Flowers are always pretty and they never clash with each other, they just become more beautiful! Huh I feel like there’s a life lesson in there somewhere. I better cut myself off before this becomes another edition of “deep thoughts with Allison.”

Floral Dress

I love this sweet, floral dress from BEO. It’s feminine and sexy all at the same time and hangs just perfect. The more I look at it the more I like it, it’s truly lovely. It is only sized for Maitreya and comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the belt. The BEO group is free to join and you’ll find this dress in the store as a free group gift.

Tippy Toes

These super cute flip flops are another of the Cosmopolitan free group gifts. I posted all the details of this event yesterday, and you can find links in that post to the others posts on the subject. These shoes come in just one size, which fit my Maitreya high feet perfectly. They include a HUD that lets you pick different colors, too. These will definitely become a summer staple for me!

Boudoir Secrets

Boudoir Secrets (2)

Hello FabFree!

As you may have heard Cosmopolitan’s 6th Anniversary as started, you can see previous coverage on the event by Love {here}! There are gifts a plenty here, all you need to do is be a member of the in-world group, which is free to join and shop away! All of the gifts are freebies for the celebration of the event’s 6th Anniversary.

So, after shopping and gathering my free gifts at Cosmopolitan, I rush home to see what goodies are in store for me. The very first gift I open is a sexy little lingerie number by Kenny Rolands. Now, I am a HUGE fan of this creator, have been for quite some time, their textures and attention to detail is outstanding. This is a one piece lingerie set, that is quite risque, a little blue bow covers the most sensitive of areas, while the bra is left open for a revealing concept.

Kenny Rolands- Miss Cute Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza- Freya
  • Slink- Hourglass

I love lacy pretty accessories and Supernatural has a beautiful little freebie at the Cosmopolitan event. It is a little collar/choker, with a multi-color HUD for the band. This gift does offer both open collar and non open collar options, for those it may interest. The accents of gold and little white gems, really do bring a sense of soft beauty to this piece.

Supernatural- Lovely Collar Options:

  • Open Collar
  • Non Open Collar (Just a simple accessory)

What’s That?

What’s that over there?  No no… to the right a little.  Yes!  There!  Can you make it out?  Yes…it’s …. it’s….. Well  have no flipping idea, but it’s definitely there!

Enough Silly…

Right, so instead of being silly, I’ll just tell you about this super awesome dress I’m currently wearing.  I got it for completely free at the Cosmopolitan event.  Just join their group for free and click on the sign near the entrance – there’s another gift there too if you’re looking to add to your inventory (and who isn’t?).  This dress by Fashionnatic features several daring cut outs, and some really fabulous lacing on the hip.  The dress comes with an HUD to change the colour of the lacing, so you can play around with it and make it yours!

My enormous hoop earrings are a gift courtesy of Mandala.  There are two new gifts out there to celebrate their time on the Tempura sim.  Join their group for free, and you too can pick up these sweet hoops as well as a necklace to go with.  Can’t say no to that!

Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

In My Birthday Suit

In My Birthday Suit

It’s high time to head to the beach, I think.  Ok, it may only be March, and I believe snow is looming in many parts of the world, so quite frankly we need to soak up the rays right now, even if they are only in SL.  I found a really cute bathing suit at Lana that may just tickle your fancy!

Vitamin Sea

The salt water lapping at my legs is all I need to feel at peace today, though this bathing suit by Lana is seriously giving me those mid 90’s vibes that bring me back to a fun time and place in my life!  I mean, how can you say no to a hot pink suit with “Birthday Suit” printed across it?   So hot.  It comes with an HUD to um…. reveal some more of your upper body (cough, cough), you can also change the colour to a dizzying array of awesomeness.  It fits my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  You can grab this fun bathing suit by joining the Lana group for 100L (there are other gifts up on the wall!).

To top off my look, I have these free catty ears by Enchante which I grabbed at the Cosmopolitan event by joining their group for free.  There is another gift there too – both are hiding by the front entrance to the event! Meow!

Right, it may ruin my hair, but I’m diving in!

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve has always been my favourite.  There really is something magical and wonderful about it.  One of my most beloved traditions for Christmas Eve, is the fact that we all get together, gather around the table for hours and hours, have the best food and then after midnight, we bust out the cake and champagne before we roll ourselves contentedly into bed.   In order to be ready for tonight’s revelry, I of course needed to find the perfect fancy outfit to match the occasion.  And as I always say, if it’s free…even better!

Dazzling Delight

I popped over to the Cosmopolitan event, and found that they have a massive Christmas tree that is covered in gifts for group members.  Join the group for free, and then click on each little stocking hanging from the tree.  I got this gorgeous dress from Seniha (they actually have three dresses for you!).  I love the fact that the hem of the dress is dripping with sparkles!  So festive!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Tree Topper

Also hanging from the tree, is the little Christmas tree headband that I think is super cute.  It’s lighted as well, so you will be absolutely glowing tonight!  I also found the floating stars by Persefona that I added for an extra magical touch.  Both are delightfully free.   My finishing touch is my eye makeup which I also found hanging on the tree by VYC Femme.  The smoky eye comes in several different colour options on the applier, which is for both Omega and Catwa.

Well, my dearest readers, I hope that your Christmas Eve is filled with magic and delight.  I wish you all peace and much joy.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Snow

A Shovel Full…

I knew better than to answer the phone at the crack of dawn… “Carson, PLEEEEEEEASE come shovel my snow.” The nice guy that I am gets dressed and heads over to Love’s house to dig her out. It’s a good thing I stopped at Free Dove and picked up some warm clothes. and yes, the FREE in Free Dove means everything is FREE! I picked out the People Puffer Jacket by Kaju and the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men. I also picked up the Mosh Pit Combat Boots by Sn@tch. This is keeping me warm. I’m even working up a sweat.

The snow wasn’t the only thing that got brushed off…

As I’m hard at work shoveling, (proof provided in the picture above) Love is standing at the window, clutching a teddy bear and sipping a cup of coffee. All the while, I’m thinking about after I get finished, Love will offer me a cup.  I finish up and as I head for the steps, I hear “Looks good, Carson. Thanks!” and see the curtains pulled tightly together. I hopped in my old jalopy, (yes it’s running, today…) and changed out of my wet coat and into the Leni Roll Neck Sweater by Tiffany Designs, another FREE gift at Free Dove. I headed down the road and bought my own cup of coffee.  The next time she calls to be shoveled out, I’m grabbing this snow plow. To heck with the shovel!
