Lush

Lush

Just too lush…

Ages ago, a friend of mine teleported me to a sim called Elysion. Membership was required to visit, and he paid the fee of 650 Linden and we walked around a bit, but I didn’t get to do much exploring. I never left the group because of the fee, but I hadn’t been back to the sim because of my busy schedule, despite its promise of a lush adult atmosphere. (Don’t worry, I promise this is a PG-13 post😉 )

Fantasy cream?

I had just finished up a few stops along the trail of the Fantasy Cream Hunt and had come up with a prize that I was aching to show off. I had found this gorgeous not-quite-necklace — but definitely a come hither neckline apparel showpiece — by EvelineInTheBox which is their prize for the Hunt for just 1L if you find the little cup of cream. The gold interwoven chains are each connected by tiny red beads, and the entire thing is resizable for the perfect fit. I knew that if I could find the perfect dress… I’d be ready to explore that mysterious oasis I now consider Elysion.

Woman with the red dress on.

It turned out that I found what I was looking for at The Beautiful Ones. Right now you can pick up the Sarah group gift there one of two ways. It is out as a FREE group gift (just pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be immediately refunded to you). The group join fee is a mere 25 Linden. OR if you don’t have a lot of group space, you can pick up this beautiful applier dress with rigged mesh skirt panels for just 10L (no group space required).

Appliers included: System Layers, Omega and TMP

The Sarah dress also comes with a color change hud with 6 color choices. I’m showing you the dress in red (it matched those lovely and delicate red beads on my neck piece I was telling you about), but with 6 color choices, this is a dress that is versatile.

All decked out.

Now that I was all decked out, it was time to make my visit. I found Elysion prepared for winter… and while there were visitors scattered here and there, no one stopped to disturb me. I wandered the paths and eventually ended up upon the terrace of a stone cottage where I took my picture overlooking the pines next to a sheer curtain. Don’t worry, the fireplace is not too far away… I’ll warm up in time to be off to find more freebies.

A Little Whimsy

Whimsy

The Teleport Hub

Yesterday I was cleaning out my inventory… and with it, lots of notecards. I came across one that was a bit old, and wondered if the gift that was listed at More Than Ever was still available. It looked whimsical, flowery, pretty… and with all the cold weather posts… like something that would really cheer me up!

So I took a chance and teleported over to More Than Ever to take a peek and found that the gift was still out. This Hepburn Rose Dress in Plum is a Teleport Hub gift. You join the Teleport Hub for just 10L and you can get gifts from stores all over the grid! Just check the notices to see what’s available. For just 10 tiny linden, it’s well worth the small join fee.

The dress…

I picked up my dress and brought it home to unpack it, and instantly fell in love. It has a glittery purple top, a wide belted waist, and a skirt that is opaque at the hips, but leads down into a glittery flowered swirl of transparent prettiness. It’s whimsical and lovely and made me think of sunshine and spring.

It was also versatile and included a variety of sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Time for a little exploring.

I don’t always take time to share the sims I visit with you, but this dress made me want to visit something fanciful, so I took to the destination guide to try to find something to suit my mood.

I clicked on “Photogenic Spots” and Astralia popped up. A couple of lines from the description say that Astrialia is “an astral surreal landscape for photographers and art lovers.” And that while, “Nothing was in place according to logic and common sense, everything was in order according to the soul.”

I took a look around after the landscape rezzed in, and found myself spending far more time than it took to just take my picture. It’s a sim worth visiting if you find yourself with a little spare time and feeling a little introspective. I’ve gone back today to finish writing this post (I took my picture yesterday), just so I could see the sim as I sit here to tap out my words to you.

It made me think I need to expand my horizons a bit as far as photographs go. I think sometimes we stick with the familiar and don’t explore enough. I’m ready to branch out a bit… I hope you don’t mind, dear FabFree readers.

I want to take you on an adventure… don’t worry. Freebies will be the breadcrumbs that lead the way😉

Feeling Cozy

Bundled Up

Ready Colder Weather?

I think I’m feeling the bite of colder weather where I am. I actually had to turn the heat on this week! And all this cold has sent me hunting for warmer deals… like this FREE cozy sweater from Kib Designs. Kib is FREE to Join the group and the current group gift is a pair of cozy sweaters in all the standard mesh sizes. (I’m showing you the purple, but there is also a darling maroon color).

Past Group Gifts too!

These sweaters will warm you up and have you ready to adventure to snowy regions for sure! What’s more is there were several FREE past group gifts still up at Kib. Including at least one that caught my eye for gentleman… I’ll be letting Loki know in case he want’s to give you the details.

She’s a Cheeky One!

Cats Choose Us We Don't Choose Them
Mew……mew….mew…. the soft, plaintive cries floated on the breeze just as we arrived at the Pandora Resort.  My pal, Ripley, cocked his head, and then sped off to offer assistance to two poor, lost kittens.  The pupster can’t resist the call of creatures in need, and I can’t resist hunting down a good bargain.  Today, I have some free gifts to share with you that work beautifully together to create a cheeky, casual outfit, but first, back to our adventure…

Kittens 'n' boots

 Kittens ‘n’ Boots

When my boot-clad feet caught up with my canine friend, we discovered these adorable kittens calling for the rest of their family.  While I kept a close eye on our new feline acquaintances, Ripley dashed off to locate the missing relatives.  In this photo, you can get a close look at these fabulous and free Super Thigh Boots I discovered at Cheeky Amour.  A free gift for Third Life Group members, these softly polished high boots come with a texture-change HUD, which includes a range of 29 color variations, making them a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  High boots are “in” this fall, and for only a group join fee of 5L, you can keep up with the latest fashion trend for a very small investment.  In addition, there are many other free gifts around the grid for Third Life group members, so your lindens will reap a big return.

Camo Kat

A Military-Inspired Mini

Scandalize Creations is currently offering this camo-print Militar mini dress as a free gift for its group members.  The frock features a plunging, V-shaped neckline, and a softly-gathered sash at its center, designed to accentuate your waistline.  An asymmetrical hemline adds a playful touch, while half-length sleeves keep your arms warm on cool fall days.  I love its fun and flirty style! Best of all, the Scandalize Creations group is completely free to join.  To coordinate with the mini’s military theme, I snapped on a Brass Bullet necklace that I found from Jade Dragon Designs on The Marketplace.  It’s actually meant for guys, but it resized easily to fit my avatar, and I’m quite pleased with the overall look.

Reunited

It didn’t take Ripley long to round up the rest of the feline family.  As you can see in my main snapshot, all ended happily for the two little, lost kittens.  After accepting grateful thank yous from a once-anxious set of kitty parents, Ripley and I were free to explore SL’s wonderful sights, and seek out new Fabulous Finds for our wonderful readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

I’ve got news of a couple of Halloween goodies that are still out that you will want to add to your wardrobe as Gothic clothing staples. This dress from CandyDoll will be a year-round staple for any Gothic-at-heart gal (like me) even if it has been set out as a Halloween Gift. It’s FREE with your group membership. The group is FREE to join.

Hurry though, I’m not sure how much longer it will be out now that the holiday is over.

What You Get

My gorgeously Gothic lipstain is a FREE gift from WarPaint for Catwa heads. I picked it up at The Coven Event. Be sure to hurry over and pick this up before the event ends!

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Gothic is still in…

If you think I have to put away those amazing Halloween Gifts creators put out for us, think again. I’m re-purposing mine into fashionable Gothic accessories. Chop Zuey has always been generous with both group gifts (the join fee is 350L) and free to all gifts, and though I didn’t manage to show off this Skull of Corruption Necklace in time for Halloween, I knew it would have a place in my Goth-at-Heart wardrobe.

This necklace is one of the newest group gifts that you can pick up at Chop Zuey with your group tag. There are also two free to all gifts that match it (earrings and hair sticks) as well that I’m not showing. Those you can pick up nearby to get a beautiful matching look.

The little black dress…

I love little black dresses, and I love that there are so many ways to make a little black dress. They can be plain, business, creative, sexy, Gothic, or what have you! I was really thrilled when I saw that Meva had put out this nicely detailed little black dress for group members as a gift. It only comes in a size for Maitreya, but you might be able to fiddle with it to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I love the metal rings and straps and sexy cut outs. This is a real winner. The group join fee for Meva is 100L, but there are currently a total of 5 beautiful group gifts out for you to pick up, making it well worth your fee to join, if you’re not already in the group.

My Secret Garden on Tuesday

It’s 25L Tuesday! Time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe! On a Lark has out another lovely dress for the ladies… and again it is one that is versatile enough to be for roleplay or everyday. You can pick it up in a myriad of colors for just 25L each and this pretty dress comes in fits for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Venus, and Werwolf. There are no standard mesh sizes in the package and it does not include an alpha, though if you did some fiddling, you might be able to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I decided I needed a place to lounge about and found the perfect seating courtesy of Crys Secret Garden. They have generously put out a gift for FabFree members.

Baubles! and Stripes

Shaded

I’m always thrilled when EvelineInTheBox sets out a new group gift, and I was not disappointed with the latest giftie. This pretty shirt with its upward dipped front, rivets at the neckline, and colorful stripes is not only fun, but also beautiful. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh sizes for a multitude of mesh bodies, including: Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique, Freya, Isis, and Venus. It fits like a dream and since the group is FREE to join, the gift is completely FREE as well.

I paired this boho reminiscent style shirt with a pair of earrings that I felt had the same feel. I picked up the Baubles! gift earrings FREE as a group gift as well. This group is also FREE to join. There were two other gifts setting out for you to enjoy… another pair of earrings as well as a pretty necklace.

A Little Hallow-Something For Your Outfit

Snapshot_001
Hi there FabFree!  If you have been reading my posts over the years, you probably know that while I am not a big “Halloween costume” girl…  I do <3 LOVE <3 the season and adore adding little touches to my outfits to celebrate rather than going all out.

Orquidea had just the touch I was looking for to add a little hallow-something to my outfit today, in the form of this Sweet Kitty Mesh Shirt.  The blouse and vest are one piece and it comes in several mesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer for those still on the system body.   The best news is, that if you like it as much as I do – you can pick it up for FREE!  All you need to do is hunt down the little hidden candy corn hunt icon for the Tihuta Halloween Hunt!

Happy hunting!
