Blue Sweater Morning

Blue Sweater Morning

April mornings are still chilly here in my part of the world… so sweaters and blankets are a must. Thankfully, a new-to-me store that I found saved the day… errr morning… with a beautiful his and hers FREE gift!

Currently, if you stop by the ::K:: main-store, you can join the group FREE and pick up the FREE group gift. Inside the box you will find these beautiful blue his and hers matching sweaters. The sweaters come in two styles… one with a white inner blouse and one without. There is only one size inside and they seem to be fitted mesh. There is another group gift out for members as well, a pair of very nice red men’s trousers (not shown in this post).

I’m looking forward to warmer spring weather, but for now, I’m content to curl up with a warm sweater and good company… even if that company is my own alt-er ego ;). Enjoy your day!

Corset-ed Fairy

Corset-ed Fairy

I decided to put my roleplay hat on… or rather my wings on! Because I found an amazing little FREE in-store mini hunt at Tiar that is not to be missed. Right now if you bunny hop to Tiar, the creator is hosting an in-store mini Easter Egg hunt where you can get free goodies. There are eggs full of prizes all over the store. You have to be within 10 meters of the eggs to get the goods, so no cam-touching, but its well worth the hop around the store.

I picked up this FREE Princess Corset in all the standard sizes as one of the hunt gifts, as well as these FREE wings in black in one of the eggs. There were many many more wonderful gifts… so jump over to Tiar and fill your basket!

A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!

The Radio Grind at the Wash Cart Sale shows me I don’t need clothes to paint.

Well look at this, it’s Thursday already! I have to admit, my week didn’t start out the best, I was feeling a little under the weather. When feeling like that, there are a few things that make me feel better…finding stuff to show all you fab readers, being creative, and cats. Yup, you heard me. So for my feature post this week, I was able to combine all 3! Go me!

painting1

First of all, I have to tell you about my super cute outfit…well, I’ll call it an outfit, but in reality, it’s a painter’s smock, a cute bra and pantie set, and paint, lot’s of it, which inspired my colourful painting of cats. My Painted Lady look is courtesy of The Rebakery for Radio Grind at The Wash Cart sale that I know you all know is still going on. For a whole L$10, you get a multitude of system layers of body paint, from your head, to your hands to your legs. A bra and pantie set, on your underwear layers, and a mesh smock in the standard sizes. I love the little paint smudges you can have on your face, in RL, I would totally have paint on my face. Here is the Direct TP to the Radio Grind Cart. I will put a picture of the Cart itself at the end of this post so you can check out the other fun offerings they have.

The next piece to my puzzle was a new skin, and with it being the start of another month, new, free group gifts abound! I went with the lovely Gardenia skin from WoW Skins, which is the new September group gift. You get this skin in every tone, with cleavage and noncleavage versions of each. I happen to be wearing tan, without cleavage. For a one time fee of L$350, you can join their group and grab up this beauty, not to mention a box of past group gifts sitting right beside the new one, as well as have access to group only midnight manias, and lucky letter boards. Don’t you just love the pretty pale pink of the lips? This is a very natural look, which I really gravitate towards.

painting2My final piece, is the fun hair I have on. It is another free group gift, this time from Elikatira. The Lena hair, with the exclusives texture hud that you won’t be able to buy, was sent out to group members on the 1st. It is unrigged mesh, so you can adjust it to fit practically any size head. The group is L$250 to join, but as that is the price of one pack of hair, it pays for itself immediately! I love a great short hairstyle. You may see this on me quite often 🙂

 ** OK Fab readers. I did some investigation after hearing that the Elikatira group was not open to join, and messaged Elika herself. The group is currently closed, but has been for quite some time, due to Elika not being inworld very much. She did not want people having to pay the join fee and then not get so much as a notice from her, due to her absence. Fear not though…she is in the midst of preparing her new store location, and once it’s open (within a month, she figures) she will re-open her group! Sorry to have teased you with this gift, but now at least you know what to expect in the future.

See, I was able to get creative, albeit a little messy, paint some cats, and show off some wonderful stuff for all you fabulous readers! Yup, made me feel much, much better. OK, I am off for now, but you know I will be back. Until next time, TTFN *waves*

A nap on the beach is a fine idea!!

Well hello again, all you fabulous readers!

This week has been really long, I’ve learned that this blogging thing is tough. I mean look at me, having to lay here in the warm sun, with the sound of waves gently hitting the shore, breathing in the fresh salty air of the ocean, it’s so exhausting. I may just have to close my eyes and drift off for a nap! This is what I have to do so that all you FabFree readers out there can see some of the newly put out gifts and gacha prizes at our FabFree HQ. It’s a tough job, but I am dedicated 🙂

Beachy3

First of the new designer donation gifts at FabFree HQ‘s, is the lovely FABOO. WOMEN”S GIFT, which is the SANTA MAUI BIKINI.  It has a fun tropical pattern that is sure to make you want to rush off and find a beach somewhere. For all you Lola Tango and Phat Azz wearers, it does come with appliers for both. I really love the cute little bows that sit just perfectly on the hips.

Beachy2

Of course I had to add a little sparkle in the way of the *P* MESH Necklace and Ring set called ~Fallen Heart~.  It comes across as a beautiful, simple set that still manages to stand out.  The necklace and ring are heart-shaped diamonds with silver wings. This, like the bikini, is a designer’s donation gift at our FabFree HQ‘s.

Now, just outside FabFree HQ‘s are some gacha’s, as some of my fellow bloggers have mentioned before. One of them is where I got this gorgeous skin from. It is the  Alexxis Skin 02H, from Style by Kira, and it is a steal at only L$45 a play! There are 16 different makeup versions for this skin, each skin has a normal and cleavage version, and it is just the perfect tan shade to compliment my beachy look. Oh, and just so you know, the eyebrows on this skin are a light brown shade, so the black brows you see in my picture are my own.

The final piece to my beach puzzle is the beauty by alaskametro<3 polish – “Electric” mani and pedi appliers for SLink hands and feet on the marketplace. Love had shown you the Midnight set [HERE], and as she mentioned, there are other colours to choose from. I went with the gorgeous blue set called Electric. At only L$10 for both the feet and hand appliers, it was an easy choice. 

Well…I think it is high time for that nap. *waves sleepily* I hope you all have a fabulous day, I know I will.
