Soon, It Will Be Slothoween!

It's Almost Slothoween

Hello there, Fab Free! With the new month, we have a bunch of hunts that got started, and I eagerly hit the trail of The Boo Bunny Hunt this week. My favorite prize of all is this adorable tank top. It makes me smile every time I see it, and I picked it up for just a small fee (plus a bit of time spent searching).

I’ll Do it Tomorrow…

…at least that’s what I imagine the sweet-faced critter on my new shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. might be saying as he gives us a friendly wave. The Slothoween Tee features a cute creature lounging atop a carved pumpkin, brightly colored autumn leaves, and a crescent moon in a star-filled sky. The vibrant colors really pop against the dark background! With its narrow shoulder straps and slightly cropped hem, I’d be grabbing a jacket in real life when wearing this top, but hey, this is SL, and it’s all good 🙂 The prize folder contains an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for a variety of mesh body types. Each item in The Boo Bunny Hunt costs one Linden dollar, and you’ll be searching for pieces of wrapped candy. You have until Slothoween, er I mean Halloween, to collect some amazing prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Life is Gourd

Jack O’Lanterns Shining Bright

Over at satus Inc., I found these Halloween Pumpkin Earrings that were the perfect accessory for my outfit as a free group gift. They come in gold, green, and red, and are sized for female and male avatars. While in the shop, I also picked up an older free group gift to round out my look – charcoal-colored Stella Leggings. Inside the folder, you’ll find sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body types. There is a 25 Linden dollar join fee for the satus Inc. group, but with thirty-two (yes thirty-two!) other group gifts, it’s well worth the price.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Crisp Breeze and Dancing Leaves

Happy Last Day of September, Fabulous Readers!  The month flew by for me, and it’s hard to believe it will be October tomorrow.  Today’s post features a free camisole top that I opted to pair with a jacket because of the cooler fall temperatures.  That being said, I think it would also work well worn by itself or coupled with an overshirt.

Crisp and Clean

I love the contrasting hues in my outfit today.  If opposites are not your cup of tea, my new tank top from Arata Shouten will coordinate well with just about anything because you can easily edit the color.  The folder includes two options for the camisole, a white and a gray tint that you can customize by right-clicking and selecting edit.  After that, you’re limited only by the colors of the rainbow!  I decided to stick with a bright white, but the sky’s the limit.  Best of all, I picked it up for a grand total of zero Linden dollars and I didn’t need to join a group.  The top is BOM, so you have to have a mesh body with BOM enabled to be able to wear it.

Until next time, I wish you days full of crisp breezes and colorful dancing leaves.  🙂

Free as a Wren (err…Bird)

Free as a Bird
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am so excited to join the Fab Free team!  I’ve been a long time Fab Free member, and it is a dream come true to blog for all of you.  I’m looking forward to sharing my fashion finds as I journey around the grid, so without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Birds of a Feather…

I don’t know about you, but I love it when I head to a store to pick up an item and just happen to spot another gift that I knew nothing about ahead of time.  It’s definitely a welcome added bonus!  That happened to me the other day when I followed Aline’s advice in her post here, and stopped by Ewa Boutique to pick up their latest Fab Free group gift.  Right away, I noticed the sleek Aghata dress vendor on the wall.  All I had to do was change my group tag to the FitMesh Fanatics group, tap the board, and pay zero Linden dollars …. easy peasy!  Since the group is free to join, my budget was just as thrilled as I was with my discovery.  This strapless frock hugs my curves and allows my shoulders to soak up some late summer sunshine.  The gift includes adorable lacing and ties on the sleeves, a texture change HUD, and a coordinating pair of Valkire heels.  If red is not up your alley, you have 11 other hues to select from.  I’m sure you will love this dress as much as I do!

Sizes/Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • EBody

Until next time,

The color of the collar or the belt or the hem. Flowers on or off! Polka Dots here or there! I spent a lot of time mixing and matching all over this cutie. Jeanette comes in a ton of colors each one for the 25L special price. I’m betting you will find a favorite or two!

Black Friday at Blueberry

FabFree: Black Friday at Blueberry

Ok Fabulouses…  I have some awesome Blueberry news, but the first thing I have to say is… I have no control over the blueberry region, please don’t send me hate mail if you can’t get in (yes, I got some frustrated IMs from readers after the last Addams 300L credit post I did when people were upset they couldn’t get in right away)!  Be kind and patient and keep trying with the three sims listed below.  Maybe you have a teleport HUD that might assist you in getting in faster?

It’s Black Friday at Blueberry

There is WAY too much going on at Blueberry for Black Friday, and it’s super exciting!

  1.  There’s a 100,000L giveaway where 40 winners from social media and inworld groups can win 2500L gift cards to Blueberry.
  2.  You can find a 300L credit for every group member in the past notices of the Blueberry inworld group which is just 20L to join at the moment!
  3.  A 50% off Store Wide Sale until December 2nd, making this the best time ever to spend your credit!
  4.  10% Bonus on gift cards – eg. When you purchase 1000L gift card, you’ll get a card with 1100L on it instead!

What I’m wearing…

It’s not my first rodeo in the Jolene outfit by Blueberry.  As this was released a few months ago, I have worn it inworld over and over again, but now…  I can wear it on FabFree because you can get the jeans and the top for FREE with a little extra to spare, using your 300L group credit during the 50% off sale! Each piece will come to 125L each, bringing your total to 250, of course… you can choose whatever you like in the store at half off, aside from gachas and the two new latest releases!

Now.. before you panic, Note that you don’t have to be IN blueberry to get the credit.  Just join the inworld group and pick it up in notices:

Blueberry Group Link (Copy paste it in world chat): secondlife:///app/group/3e300d6c-e4d5-5e30-fe61-1c46a10fa2ca/about

…  and then calmly try TPing in for the sale.  The credit doesn’t expire, but the sale ends on December 2nd.

Hey Fabulouses!  One of the many things I love about Second Life is that you can be who ever you want, whenever you want!  Right now I’m having some roleplay fun at the Elvion Sim defending the Fae (who are actually probably more capable of defending me, but I look cool with the sword right?) wearing a couple of pieces from the Azuchi Merida Gacha Set that has just been released at Epiphany.

Finding Llamas at Zoom

Once you locate the hidden Llama hunt icon at zOOm and pay it 1L, you’ll have The Boho Hunt Dress which is a denim floral sleeved frock.  I was visiting the beautiful Elvion Sim today, and was inspired to put a fantasy spin on my look today with elf ears, but I can really see this adorable dress being styled up all flower child too.  Have fun with it!

Where Flowers Bloom

Gathering Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the peaceful quiet of the Elvion sim today after traveling down the path of the Spring Fling Hunt.  My pretty floral frock happens to be one of the prizes that you can uncover in this hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Gathering Posies

The sweet springtime print scattered across a cream colored background on this hunt prize inspired my pose today.  It made me think of an enjoyable morning spent wandering through nature gathering wildflowers.  Featuring a sleeveless design and a hemline that falls to the upper thigh, this dress will help you usher in sunny, warm spring days.  Its full skirt is loosely gathered and offers casual comfort for day to day activities.  To add this little beauty to your inventory, simply teleport over to The Sissy Bar, locate the rose blossom hidden somewhere inside, and pay just one little Linden dollar.  If you get stumped, there is a handy hint giver in the shop.  Honestly, the pupster and I found the hunt object without any trouble at all, so this should be quick and easy for you, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Bangles
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Why Walk If You Can Dance?

Alice

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week got off to a terrific start yesterday.  I’m happy to be able to tell you that Ripley made it through his surgery and is back home resting and recovering.  He surprised the vet tech by chewing through his first catheter – silly, spunky boy!  Right now, after he was shaved for his ultrasound last week, and again yesterday on his two front legs and around his incision, he looks a bit worse for wear, but I am grateful to have him back home.  We will know more in the next week or so if the surgery was successful.  Thank you so much for your kind words of support.  They touched my heart.

Since I had some extra time while hanging out with my exhausted pal, I was able to discover some gifts that I am excited to share with you.  One is this gorgeous dress, which I picked up as a free Women’s Day gift, and the other is a sultry dance animation that cost just one little Linden dollar.  Even though I’m nowhere near as skilled as Love with her editing skills, I had fun making a little video clip to showcase the dance moves, and I hope you enjoy it!

First, The Dress

With its high neckline and long sleeves, you might think the Alice Dress would be on the “plain Jane” side, but its sexy slit, golden eyelets and tied lacing add spice and intrigue.  I love the way this little number clings to your curves and dips dramatically low in the back.  The fabric itself contains subtle ribbing and realistic folds.  The hemline falls just to the upper thigh, so you might need to make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body while out and about.  Although I opted for black, there is also a maroon version tucked inside the gift folder that is just as appealing.  To pick up a copy of this frock for yourself, teleport over to the Hilly Haalan shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Next, The Moves

Humanoid Dance Animations, one of my favorite animations stores on the grid, celebrates the return of Angie by offering the slow, sexy Angie_16 dance for just 1 Linden dollar.  It’s fascinating to watch how Angie’s dance animations are captured from real life, so I’ve linked Humanoid’s video below.  Here’s my little clip of how the dance appears in world:

 

 

Thanks for reading and watching.  Happy shopping!
