I found just what I needed for a nighttime stroll on a medieval farm when I stopped by Belle Epoque.  The current group gift is this lovely mesh gown in blue, brown, and green(shown in blue).  Each dress is beautifully textures and moves great with your body.  It is a must have for medieval role players.

A few days ago Glimmer posted 7 Deadly Skins‘ new group gift, and I loved it so much, I went and grabbed a copy myself.  (If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out her post HERE.)  It is shown here with the 10L C.I.N.E.M.A makeup from Dead Apples.  The skin comes in 4 tones, including my favorite, Taupe, and I find the makeup gives you a sweet, rosey glow.

Plenty of fish in the sea

Hello FabFree Folks! Thursday just keeps rolling along. I do love a sale and 45 Linden Sales always has something I just gotta have.

Plenty of Fish in the Sea

This week, The Broken Glass Boutique put this amazing little sea – inspired dress out for the 45 Linden Sale. This is the “She’s A Catch” dress, earring and bangles. I love the creative layering of the dress. The under dress is cute by itself but then you add the separate ‘fishing net’ over dress and ..wow! I guess you could wear just the net if you are daring enough. ;)   You also get the matching earrings and the bangles to make a sweet outfit.

The 45 Linden Sales items go out on Wednesday evenings so hurry over to get your sale on!

Just Say ‘I Do’

Hello hello, Fab Free Folks! I hope this brand new August is treating you well. With the start of August we have the start of a bunch of new Hunts including the 1L  ‘Marry Me Hunt’ from Nefeli Events.

Just Say "I Do"
I picked this Hunt because I am such a hopeless romantic. My real life wedding anniversary is in August so dressing up as a bride again in second life was just too much fun. I started with the dress, of course. This is the Chiffon Sparkle Wedding Gown from Kitty Shape Wears. You get both the dress and the shimmery veil in the Hunt prize. I know this is a wedding dress but the clean elegant lines would make this a lovely evening gown for any occasion.     Just Say "I Do"

 

I added some glamor and glitz with the “Beloved” jewelry set from Footpaw Industries. Your one Linden will score you the necklace, the earrings, two bracelets, the tiara, and two hair sticks. And again, this is lovely wedding wear but you could easily wear the set for any dress up occasion.

Now I just needed the perfect back drop for my new finery. Darkmatter stepped up and granted my wish with the gorgeous Lover’s Bench. The sweet little retreat comes loaded with three couples poses just right for photos.

The Marry Me Hunt runs until August 31st so hurry down the aisle!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers

Sometimes, we all need a week at home and a little snuggling and “me” time… but really, this entire post was inspired by a chance encounter…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [1]

So it was Fifty Linden Friday and I landed at Sway’s to pick up their deal of the day when I noticed they had out this gorgeous FREE gift! A rainbow heart couch with single sits and LBGT cuddle sits and it’s only two prims. You don’t need a group and you just pick it up courtesy of their store for FREE! I won’t get into politics, but it hit close to home and is a cause close to my heart, so I snatched up the gift and decided, this would be the “heart” of my post for the week (yes pun intended!)

Later I happened to be at on9 when I noticed they had some fabulous gifties out for visitors. There are several items out, and the group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. I picked up the clutch in mango but there were also several lovely mesh dresses and some accessories as well!

And let’s not forget that the Hair Fair ends today! Don’t miss your last chance to get the great gifts that are just there waiting for you!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [2]

Astrid is sporting this sexy short style from which was a FREE gift from Calico in a rich brown called Quinn and I topped it off with the FREE gift from Tableau Vivant — a sexy flower headband. Both creators were generous with their Hair Fair gifts. Calico’s Quinn is a fatpack of full colors and Tableau Vivant’s flower giftie comes in a fatpack of six sexy colors!

This photo is also a great shot of my jewelry, which you can grab for a sweet steal of a deal for only 50$L a spin at OMG – Oh My Gatcha right now. It comes in either gold or silver and Meva outdid herself in the gorgeous details on this flowery jewelry set. I love that the rings come in a right or left hand choice setting and that the jewelry is easily modifiable for sizing!

If you look close you’ll also notice my Tango nail appliers. These are another great find — this time from the marketplace. That’s right! Alaskametro has done it again! Another great palate of 12 colors for only 10$L. Don’t miss out on this “Tango” applier set!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [3]

But were not done yet… you have one more stop before you can relax. Head over to Kaithleen’s to pick up the latest group gift. This sweet mesh green dress comes in all the standard sizes is a FREE group gift right now. The group is FREE to join and I love the off the shoulder style and the lovely detailing at the top.

All in all, it made for a great day at home. I’m feeling the love! And I’m loving my new couch. (And for only two prims only my house is loving it too!) Time for a couch nap!

No Passport Needed

Hello again, FabFree Dear ones! I don’t know about y’all but I need a vacation! Taking eighty or so days to trapse around shopping at fabulous stores and collecting great prizes sounds like just the thing.

No Passport Needed

My first stop on the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt was at Nerdy Girl. I am absolutely in love with this dress! I spent a large part of my collage age years in Oklahoma and route 66 runs right through there. I have very fond memories of cruising the ‘mother road’ through the back country and stopping at funky little diners and dives along the way. The ‘Vintage Summer Road trip ‘ dress would have been the perfect get up to cruise around in! It comes in all the standard sizes and the little bow at the waist is optional.

I had to have hair that would ‘flow’ in the breeze as I drive so I stopped at Kokolores’ shop at the Hair Fair and picked up their free gift – Ash . It comes in a very nice variety of colors and is unisex. I’m thinking it would look tres smexy on some of you guys out there who rock the longer hair.

As my real life BH  ( That’s Beloved Husband ) will tell you: I never travel light. Poor guy is pulling out his hair trying to pack everything for our move as it is.  Annnyway, Park Place Home Decore has set out the sleek three piece luggage group for us as part of the Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt. It comes loaded with 22 poses for guys and gals. It’s just the thing to pack up your souvenirs from the trip!

The Hair Fair only lasts until July 26! That’s just a few more days, so if you need hair ( and who doesn’t??) go support the Wigs for Kids charity and grab some marvelous free gifts.

The Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt runs all the way till September 30th!

A New Look for a New Week

Aboutface

 

I love how a small thing, like a new set of eyes, or some makeup, can make your avatar seem like a completely different person.  My little Moira was badly in need of an update, and I was lucky enough to be directed to Dead Apples by a friend.  They have 2 group gifts out right now, these beautiful moody eyes (In three colors, shown here in lilac), and the lovely eyeshadow tint, that really makes the eyes pop (in 8 colors, including a tintable version!).  While I was there, I also picked up new lips for only $50L.  It really pulled the whole look together!  Hidden in one corner of Dead Apples  is a stack of boxes full of great 10L makeups and items as well, so don’t miss that!

If you are a fan of amazing, long silky hair styles, make sure to pick this one up from Moon. at the Hair Fair.  It has an amazing hud with tones of tones, streaks, and even sparkle options.  The circlet is also a freebie from Hair Fair, set out by Blueberry.  I can see it quickly becoming a wardrobe staple.

Have a wonderful week!

Moira

encore2_001This is the “Priscilla” dress and shoes from Encore. You may remember the beautiful things we’ve seen from Encore at our own Cart Sales at the Wash. I am happy to report that the Cart sale was just a teaser for all the lovely things you’ll find in the shop and at Encore’s Marketplace page.  I am totally in love with this dress. The details are simply gorgeous and that fabric… just perfect.  Plus, you get the cute matching shoes for SLink mid feet.  All this for 0L with no group needed. encore2_002

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl’s Best Friends

We probably all remember the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” I remember thinking: “But diamonds are hard and why do boys get dogs?!” Because dogs were man’s best friend — what was up with that? Life was so unfair! Well MINA @ the Hair Fair, Belle Epoque and Empyrean Forge are here to save the day with outstanding fashion (as usual!) to make up for all the insanity!

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [2]

I had spent a hard day’s work braving Hair Fair, where I picked up this amazing FREE gift from MINA @ the Hair Fair called Selenia. This gift is only available in Grey tones (which was fine by me as it fits my roleplay character (a glass fae) just perfectly! But it would also be terrific for mature looks or even in the very lightest shade to pass for a platinum blonde.

The great thing is that this is one of those second chance gifts! You first saw this hair HERE where it was blogged as an amazing find by Love Trill at The Arcade Gacha! So if you missed it then, now it’s available for a second go ’round!

My next stop was a quick jump to Belle Epoque for their amazing FREE group gift which is perfect for any roleplayer’s wardrobe and can be worn as is — or over the top of system clothes or applier clothes for more modesty if desired. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE as well. It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes, and includes three great colors (I’m only showing you the green but there is also a beautiful blue and a fabulous brown shade inside the package as well!).

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [1]

I had decided that the evening now called for a little relaxation, which meant I headed home to sit by the fire and did the rest of my shopping via the marketplace where I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite designers — Empyrean Forge — is spoiling us all with a special promo! A 1L giftie of their Contessa ring in either a lustrous white or sexy black pearl option (depending upon which way you go)!

This is great because you can give it as a gift to a friend as well if you like. I finished my look off with a lovely manicure set by alaskametro in a french silver finish for slink hands. The applier kit is on the Marketplace and has a great palette choice of 25 colors for only 25L. That’s a hard deal to beat for such a great color set!

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl's Best Friends [3]

In case you were wondering, yes I did splurge. With all the mullah I saved on my other goodies for this get-up, I did buy the jewelry that matches the Contessa ring! Empyrean forge is offering a lovely matching necklace and matching bracelet and with a color change hud, each with two metal choices, and 12 gemstone finishes. I just couldn’t resist!

Into the depths of the sea

Finally… the weekend! Hello again, FabFree Folks, I hope your weekend is going well in SL and RL. I hope you’re making time for some of the great new Hunts going on all over the grid. I plunged into the Atlantis Hunt this weekend and I found some lovely prizes to show you.

Into the depths of the seaFirst up, this is the ‘Claire Dress in Ocean’ from Wicked. This is a deceptively simple dress but it’s very sleek and elegant without being fussy or formal. I love the ombre dye look and the color is so lovely.  Even though the dress has a higher neckline, it makes the perfect back drop for the ‘Atlantis’ necklace from Never Ever. This is a unisex prize though it does come in two sizes for gals and guys.   Lastly, I’m wearing the ‘Atlantis – Silver’ for SLink nails from La Boheme. You get both the mani and pedi with both silver and gold accents. Atlantis Collage

There are thirty eight stops on the 0L Atlantis Hunt and there is a very nice variety of prizes for men, women and the home.  This Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay!
