Who says Halloween can’t be about flowers?

Hello again my FabFree readers! Did you miss me last week? I missed you, but don’t worry, I’m going to make up for my lack of a post last week with a super-duper, wicked-awesome, goodie-filled post today! Ok, maybe I overdid it with the ‘super-duper’, and ‘wicked-awesome’, but I do have a lot of goodies to show off. So let me get right into it.

purple_004I wanted to put together a look that would work for a more formal Halloween party, and I started with my shoes. These little beauties, called Sutra II, are the free October Facebook gift from Alaskametro. I was so excited to see the colour they came in, as I just love purple as a Halloween colour. What’s even better, they come with a HUD that lets you choose between 3 different shades of purple. I am wearing the version for SLink high feet, but there are also The Mesh Project, Maitreya, and Belezza versions, all in their prospective high versions. In case you have not ever taken advantage of the Alaskametro Facebook gifts, or just don’t remember what to do, let me tell you. You need to head over to the Alaskametro Facebook page, HERE (like it if you haven’t already), and click on the link for special promotions. The picture there will tell you the code you need to know. Then, inworld, head over to the Alaskametro store, and walk over to the gift poster. Say the code you got from the Facebook page, on channel 33, exactly as written (meaning in capital letters). So your chat bar should show /33 CODEHERE, with CODEHERE not being the actual code, of course. Make sense? Trust me, these shoes are worth the effort! You have until the end of the month to grab them up. purple_001

Next up, my gorgeous dress. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple from Tiffany Designs, and it is their current Womenstuff group gift located at the ‘stuff Lounge. As stated in the name, this is a mesh dress, in all the standard sizes. Sure, looking at the lovely flowery print, with the sweet flower at the waist, one does not immediately say ‘Hey, that’s a great dress for Halloween!’, but the colour worked so nicely with my shoes, and of course the devil is in all the little added details for putting together a great costume. *grins* All you need to do to get this free gift, is join the Womenstuff group, for a small L$50 fee that is totally worth it for this dress alone, not to mention the multitudes of other gifts available.

purple_006OK, no formal party look is complete without some great jewelry. I picked up this statement making Bohemian Rhapsody necklace and earrings set at our very own FabFree Headquarters, and it is a free gift from D.D.M. Designs. These big bold pieces are the perfect complement to the simple lines of my dress and shoes, and it’s hard to beat free! Just a warning, there are actually 2 left earrings in this set, and no right earring. I have alerted the creator, but it is a simple fix by changing the attach point of one earring to the right ear, and then doing a few hocus pocus adjustments to get it sitting correctly.purple_003

OK, now for the piece that made my stunning formal look into a stunning masquerade formal look…my fabulous floral eye patch from the Bird Next Door Shop on the Marketplace.  To be honest, when I decided that I needed something for my face, I went looking for the typical, pretty, delicate mask look, and believe me, there are lots of great ones to choose from. However, in my search on the Marketplace, this flower eye patch came up, and for only L$23. It was so different from everything else, and at such an affordable price, I thought I’d give it a try. Obviously…it was a winner! And, even though the listing says it is no mod, it is actually the resize script that is no mod, so you can adjust each individual piece to your heart’s content. I tinted a few of the glowy flexi pieces the same purple as the flowers to better match my dress.

Phew…ok…I think I am done. This was a long post. I think I am going to go see if Mr. Skeleton would like to dance. He looks like he may have been waiting around for quite a while. LOL. Hope you all have a lovely week, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN!

FabFree HQ encourages lounging…Let me show you how!

Hello Fabbies! How is your week going? Are you all as happy as I am that we are passing the midweek mark? I thought, as I was just lounging around my skybox,  I would show you all a few of the free gifts that some of our generous FabFree Designers currently have available down at the FabFree Headquarters.

SeldomBlue1

First up of the FabFree gifts, Seldom Blue has put out the beautiful Lottie Lingerie in a lovely pinkish shade of red, and black. You can wear this set with or without the waist cincher and garters, as well as the stockings. For all you meshy-bits lovers, there are a few appliers supplied with this, a combined Tangos and Phat Azz applier, a SLink feet applier, and 3 layer HUDs for the SLink Physique body, so almost everyone should be very happy 🙂

SeldomBlue2

I personally believe that lingerie and jewels go together perfectly, so I was pretty happy to see that the current gift at FFHQ being offered by DDM Designs, was a gorgeous pair of sweetheart earrings, which just so happened to have a pinkish-red stone in the hearts. Talk about happy coincidence!

SeldomBlue4

Now, when lounging around in your lingerie, you cannot lounge in an empty room. So I took advantage of 2 more free gifts being offered at FFHQ. The first being from StoraxTree, the aptly named Cathedral Chest, has a definite gothic church feeling to it. Just above it is my second choice, the spirograph memo board from Wise Walls, which is a nice contrast in style to the chest. It is actually one of 2 wall decorations you receive in this gift, the other being a pretty heart memo board, which also would have worked nicely in my pictures, not to mention complimenting my heart earrings!

SeldomBlue3

Are you eyeing up the skin I am wearing? Don’t worry, stare all you like, I did when I first saw the gacha for it. Located just outside FabFree HQs, is a new gacha from Flounce. Many of you older skin lovers may remember Mimi Coral’s previous store, Cupcakes, Flounce is her newest creation, and yet again, she is satisfying our skin cravings, and at only L$25 a play for this gacha, it satisfies our love of a great deal as well. There are 5 different tones available, each tone having 2 different makeups, and none of the makeups are alike, so you have 10 different skins to play for, and all of them are so pretty. I have included a picture of the gacha ad for all of you to see, I am wearing #7, Anna – Latte – Nebula. The skins come with several different tattoo layers for beauty marks, freckles, blush and cheek highlighting, which you can put together to make your face your own.

SeldomBlue5

OK, my evening is winding down, and I think all this lounging has made me ready for bed 😛 Remember, do not let anyone tell you that it is weird to hang out in your undies and high heels, alone…well, almost alone if you don’t include Simon, who is already sleeping in the background. Until next time, TTFN!! *waves*

Caresia’s Photo Challenge Entry #3 – Then and Now

BlogPost_143A

Well, in reviewing my pictures from over the years I came to the happy conclusion that the longer you spend in SL, the better you look.  At least to yourself.  I started Second Life 6 years ago on my first avatar and I was going to use the picture from my very first day…. and then I decided I would just show you Care’s first day 3 1/2 years ago and what she looks like today.

BlogPost_143B

May I say that Second Life is ahead of its time…  *laughs*  I can’t wait to see everyone’s Then and Now pictures.

Found a few freebies to show you … I love this dress that Dressed By Lexi is giving away as their January Group Gift.  I got my earrings from D.D.M. DESIGNS and my Apple May Designs bow off the Marketplace.  I also ran over to The Dressing Room Fusion and found my Al Vulo skin and M I N A  hair. I also hit up the KUSTOM9 event and picked up a pose pack as well as their beautiful S0NG eyes. Check out all the Credits and Links below ❤

Princess Roses

Snapshot_002

You will probably see a few Color Blocking Fair 2012 posts from me this week!  I am so impressed with the creations being displayed – not to mention it’s easy to navigate your way around and the lag wasn’t bad at all!  At The Color Blocking Bazaar I found a gorgeous mesh dress made by Mayden Couture for 10L called Rose Dress.  It is a beautiful shade of raspberry and has an all over rose print with a banded waist.  it comes in five different sizes and includes the alpha layer.

 You can find the skin I am wearing in the same building for 10L as well.  This is Modish FruitJam and features juicy pastel makeup tones.

The bracelet I have on is not found at the fair. You’ll have to head to D.D.M Designs to pick up this sweet group gift!  The Princess Rose Bracelet can be picked up with your free inworld group tag activation.
