Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

All Heart

All Heart
Hiya, it’s Monday. Let’s start the week off with some awesome freebies.

Color My World

Color My World is my absolute favorite Chicago song. My world would be colored in pastels. Peach, mint, baby pink, lavender, butter yellow, and even some baby blue, but not too much. Now that I have waxed lyrically about colors. Let’s get to the good part. LOL. In my post, Love Garden here that the Reed Group was free to join. Not only does the Reed group give you free skin, but you also get access to 11 other GG, plus 3 Lucky Boards, including Reed Anna, this free rocking dress, has so much to offer, from the multi pastel color, sweater styling, and the best of all, the cutout heart 🙂

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Shoes!

That one word says it all. The Duchess Of Windsor once said, “You can never be too rich, or too thin.” I would have to disagree with the Duchess, you can never have enough shoes. When as a newlywed moving into my first home, my husband picked up a 4×4 moving box, as it was really heavy he asked “what’s in the box.” I said “shoes.” He said, “Why in the heck would you need that many shoes?” My answer was “to match my outfits.” LOL. Now that I have babbled on. The Breathe shoe group is free to join, one of the available free GG’s is the Breathe Fen Ling Heels, this bootie style laced heel, comes with a generous 21 color hud, sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and slink.) Not sure how much longer these 2 groups will be free, so grab your stilettos and run fast to these awesome stores.

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

Lovely in Lavender

Where Flowers Bloom

Hello again, Fab Free!  With Friday and Saturday just around the corner, I’m popping in quickly to share an alluring dress that is perfect for a weekend date night.  Best of all, with just a small investment of time, plus the budget-friendly prize fee, you’ll have plenty of Linden dollars left for shopping!

It’s Our Turn, Now

Last month the Men Only Hunt took place, but it’s time for the fellas to step aside.  The Woman Hunt kicked off on September 1st, and features clothing, shoes, furniture, and the like just the ladies!  My first stop on the hunt trail was Wiccan Wears, and I have to say I am thrilled with the Felicity Splash dress.  A soft shade of lavender with pink and pale green accents, it features long sleeves for cooler autumn nights, an asymmetrical hem, and a sassy, plunging neckline.  I love the way the bodice drapes ever so slightly to emphasize your figure.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply locate the hunt object (bright red lips) and pay the one linden fee.  The hunt runs through September 30th and has sixteen stops along the way.

  • Isis

Diving In All Over Again

Diving in All Over Again
I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time at the beach these days, haven’t I?  You can’t blame me, I spend most of my life in a world blanketed in a thick carpet of snow, so when beach season arrives, I totally go for it.  Just, don’t let the fish know that I’m scared of them, ok?

Oh Maai!

It’s time for a new lovely group gift courtesy of Maai!  This punchy floral bathing suit is making me feel decidedly tropical, and I can’t complain at all.  To get your own, join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor.  There are a few other gifts to pick up as well.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

Sea you later! (See what I did there?)
