Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit :)

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack :)

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around :) I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler

Glam-orous Gifts!

Glam Affair Holiday

 

I’ll just start with the fact that I cannot say enough good things about the latest group gifts from Glam Affair, Earthstones, and ZOZ.

Recently Glam Affair put out this gorgeous skin in two tones for free to all group members. I think I’m a little bit in love! I’m wearing the “Asia” tone, which is a tiny bit darker than the other tone included, both are lovely. In addition to Glam Affair‘s gift, on my pilgrimage of gift-getting, I picked up a beautiful bracelet from Earthstones.

I’ll be the first to admit I often neglect to include jewelry in my wardrobe, not because I don’t like it, but because I’m forgetful! The second I saw this candy cane bracelet from Earthstones, I had to have it. It’s dainty, and I really like the iridescent textures. Part of me wants to wear it with everything, matching or not!

Feeling pretty in my new skin, and my shiny new bangle, this beautiful holiday themed manicure from ZOZ is the proverbial icing on the cake. I really like this more delicate take on a holiday manicure, with the white reindeer silhouette and the classic french tips. This FREE gift is the type of manicure you could wear all winter and not just during the holidays. Also, the ZOZ Group is FREE to join until January 1! Please note that the manicure does require ZOZ mesh nails, though it does include a hud for Slink toenails.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Peace & Love from Lottie Dottie

Afternoon in the Garden

Where has the day gone? It seems like this day has just flown by, at least for me! So I am going to make this short and sweet. While doing a little shopping earlier, I came across this adorable little dress from Osito. Today only you can pick up this fully mesh dress for just $50 lindens as part of the “Hello Tuesday” sales! This halter style dress has a sweet and comfy sundress feel to it. It’s just the sort of thing I’d wear when I wanted to look cute without much effort! To go with my pretty little dress, I picked up an amethyst necklace and matching earrings from EarthStones. These are current group gifts at EarthStones. The pieces are called “Peace & Love” and I really like how sweet and delicate they look. With my outfit together, I of course had to have the perfect manicure to go with it. Nail Me! Has just the thing, these “Lottie Dottie” nails are at a promotional price of just $50 lindens for a limited time. The nails come in a few color variations, and are just too cute to pass up. Head over to Nail Me! and get them while they are still at this awesome price!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Pink Striped Poses Galore!

BehaviourBodyFAC1
Another time sensitive post for you! It is that time at BehaviorBody again, another free Sunday gift. This time it is the BehaviorBody animated model poses set 3. This set includes 12 animated poses, which means, each pose is actually a combination of 2 or 3 poses in 1…that’s a heck of a lot of poses in total! The pictures I have taken are of what you see when you first turn the pose on, they all move into other poses after, but that would be a whole lot of pictures, and then this post would not be very quick :P Oh, and since they are animated, you could even think about putting some of them into your AO as stands. All that for free?? I know, I couldn’t believe it either.

Before I go, I just wanted to give you a heads up about this gorgeous Pink and White striped dress I am wearing. The ::FAC:: Flora Dress [Pink Stripe] is available in a gatcha at our very own FabFree Headquarters for only L$50 a play! I am sure you are all trying to get into the Arcade right now, but there are great gatcha’s to play at FabFree Headquarters, and they will surely help ease that itchy gatcha finger.

Ok lovelies, that is it for me, I think I am about ready to go sit outside with a nice cool beverage and enjoy the last of my Sunday :) *waves* TTFN!

So, the other day I was searching for pretty freebies to blog, and a friend of mine pointed out that The Free dove has had a quite a few new things added recently, and a lot of it’s even mesh! I’d actually never been to The free dove, so naturally I had to check it out!

A walk in the woods

Snapshot

I’m not sure about everyone else here in the Northern hemisphere, but personally I am hoping and praying for warm weather to finally arrive soon. Early spring is a great time for a walk in the woods, wearing your comfiest clothes. This cozy looking hoodie is this month’s group gift at !go! It looks adorable worn alone, or with a tank layered underneath. (as seen here) Also for a limited time there is another color of this same hoodie on sale for half off in their main store, so it’s a great time to pick up another color of hoodie if you find you like this one.

Plain & Simple

Snapshot

Some days it’s best to keep your outfit plain and simple, just as I keep most of my photos I use here at FabFree. Outside of adding my name and maybe a frame they are never photoshopped in any way. I do this because I want you, the reader, to see the things I am blogging exactly as they are without any fancy camera tricks.

I loved how nice and simple this denim dress from Cynful was. It can be causal, or even dressed up nicely depending on which accessories you choose to pair with it. Best of all, it is absolutely free at Club 108 on the wall with the rest of their opening group gifts.  I am all about details, especially when it comes to denim, and as you can see in the photo below, the amount of detail in this dress is wonderful. I think this would be a great staple piece for any SL wardrobe.

Sexy Senior Citizen

Snapshot

Second Life is usually considered a playground for the young and the young at heart, or as the old saying goes, “as old as you feel.” Some days that means rocking the saddle shoes and pom poms, and others, well, your bones ache, and suddenly you look at your avatar that would surely get carded, and wonder who in the world you think you are kidding.

This sexy senior citizen is brought to you by REO-G. It is a prize on their group lucky boards, along with several other “grandmotherly and grandfatherly” looking avatars. Each avatar comes with a skin and shape. (The shape shown above is a personal shape, and not the one that comes with the skin) Needless to say I was thrilled to come across these wonderfully detailed “mature” skins. They have surely put a smile on my face, even if Granny looks as if she is “not amused.”

I’m with the Doctor

Snapshot

Someday  wouldn’t we all like to run off with a mad man with a box?  We can’t do it in real life but isn’t it wonderful that we can do anything we want to in Second Life? One of the most awesome things about this world is that unlike in real life, you can be anyone and do almost anything you could never, ever do in the real world. It’s even more awesome that you can have an amazing time here for free, or almost free every day.

What would the well dressed time traveller wear? Maybe something like this beautiful jacket dress I found on the Midnight Mania board at Ecru. It is an absolutely free public board, no group to join to get it, though there are some other wonderful group gifts in the store should you chose to sign up.
