Flirty Florals and Spring Ribbons

Sweet Spring

Hey there FabFree! The warm weather I have been having in my part of the real world this weekend, (and when I say warm… I mean +13 Celcius, and after the -30 we have had all winter – this feels like suntanning weather!) inspired me to put on a little spring outfit inworld.  You know me…  I always try to work something free in, and today it’s my shoes and skirt, which I will tell you about below!

Flirty Florals

The Mint Rose Flirty Skirt I am wearing today is available for free in a lucky board at Petite Mort!  You’ll need to be a member of the Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group, however this group is currently free to join.  There are actually four boards, and you can see two of the other prizes previously blogged on FabFree [HERE].

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • TMP

Spring Ribbons

Previously on FabFree, Aline has told you all about the new group lucky boards at Empire (with a free group join) in her Fly Gal Post [HERE], and while she scored up some sweet bow flats, I won the Lavender ribbon wedges!  You can fully customize these beautiful sandals with a texture change HUD that allows for 20 different colours.  Remember, you’ll need to be in the free to join Empire group to participate in the group lucky boards, not the group with the fee.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

A little trick:  If you have trouble finding a group joiner to pick up a group gift or participate in a group offer such as lucky boards or midnight manias, simply go into edit on the offer board or gift and click on the group it is set to to open up the profile.  It works “most times”.

Making it Happen

Making it Happen

I’m going to make the onesie as clothing thing happen.  I will, you’ll see.  Come on, think of the positives:  You’ll be comfy all day, people will compliment you on your style, and ain’t nobody else gonna be dressed like you!  Trust me, it’s going to happen!

My Lucky Onesie

I got my onesie (which by the way, if you click on it, you can take bits off one by one exposing different parts of your body…cough cough) at Vanilla Bae.  They’ve got five lucky boards out with a plethora of different looks for you.  You can join the group for 100L and pick up all five prizes (with a bit of patience) and also there are two group gifts to be had at the moment!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

My Empire

I’ve been a group member at Empire for a while – it’s one of those groups you join and just don’t leave because they come out with some really fab gifts semi-regularly (they aim for one every second month).  Sure, it’s 500L to join, but if you hurry over there you can grab all the gifts from 2017 as well as the January and March gifts (hurry though, apparently last year’s are coming down soon).  It’s a whole lotta swag.  This month’s gift are the Hazel shoes that come in a full fatpack of colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Now, me and my comfy onesie are making fashion magic happen.  Excuse us. 😉

Fly Gal

Fly Gal

I have a love-hate relationship with lucky boards.  There are some that I totally adore, because I stand there for about 5 minutes and get a whole lotta swag.  Then there are others that I believe must hate me.  I stand there for ages, hoping for that letter A to pop up, and all I see is things like “number 5” or “Q”.  What the heck man!  What gives?  Despite the sometime frustration of standing beside boards that like to taunt me, I do get some really awesome stuff, and today is no exception!

Lucky Letter Love

Empire – purveyor of awesome shoes galore – have just put out 5 new lucky boards, and they’re completely free!  You don’t have to join the VIP group for these ones, there’s another update group to join that gets you these pretty little sandals!  The group joiner for this is right beside the lucky boards in store.  I got the Penstemon shoes, that are just so sweet and come in 20 colours – you can even change the colour of the gems on the bows.  Gorgeous!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Toodledoo Baby
  • Toodledoo Kid

Top it Off

There’s no waiting and hoping for this gift from Promagic – just click on their free subscriber and you’ll get this really cute tank top that is splashed with happy colours.  You may need to click and go into the “history” section of the subscriber to find their April gift, and if that doesn’t work, just unsubscribe and re-subscribe, because that totally worked for me!  This top fits my Maitreya body perfectly.

Right – back to waiting for some more gifts to pop out of this lucky board!

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. ~ Wayne Dyer

Good afternoon Fabulouses!  You might be surprised how much power your own thoughts and actions make in not so stellar situations.  Positive intentions and focus on the things you have control over can make all the difference.  Squishy hugs to those that are struggling – hang in there!

Need a rosy little something?

Sometimes all you need is a rosy little something, and Ricielli has got your back… and your front, literally!  The Comfy Sweater as shown on my avatar is a Maitreya and Slink specific free group gift that you can pick up with your free group join.  This off the shoulder, cinched at the waist treat can be worn as a sweater or a dress depending on your mood and has the cutest sloppy sleeves.

!gO! Get your Easter Dress!

!gO! Spring

!gO! get your Easter Dress!

!gO! has out an Easter Dress as their newest group gift! I got the notice just today and couldn’t wait to go get the dress, especially when I saw the polka dots. Growing up, my favorite Easter Dress was a polka dot dress my mother made for me by hand, sewing it months in advance of the holiday with loving care. I wore that dress out even before I outgrew it, and this dress by !gO! brought back those fond memories.

To pick up the dress you’ll need to be a member of the !gO! group. It has a one-time join fee of 50L, but there are regular gifts to make it worth joining. And this pretty dress is worth the fee alone.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Lumae Catwa Lips

Ostara’s Alter

I also stopped by Ostara’s Alter. The event ends April 3rd, so if you want any of the 5L hunt items (there are eggs with gifts hidden around the sim) you’ll need to hurry. I picked up the 5L gift item from Lumae and discovered a lovely Catwa lips makeup set. I included a picture of the hud above so you can see the lip palette. You might remember that Aline blogged a cute dress from the event in her post [here].

Enjoy your weekend, Fabulous Readers!

Stay Weird

Stay Weird

I’ve always been a proponent of being yourself.  I get it though, sometimes in RL it can be hard to dress the way you want, act the way you want, or do the things you want to do.  That’s the best thing about SL.  Escapism at its finest.  In SL, I choose to Stay Weird.  Luckily for me, there are loads of creators out there who let me be who I want on a budget!  One of my fave designers, Sn@tch (who are always SO generous), have put out a new group gift.  Read on!

Skirting the Issue

This new group gift at Sn@tch is super awesome.  I like the peekaboo lace on the skirt. It isn’t too over the top in the skin showing department!  You can wear this high-waisted skirt with all sorts of things, but it comes with an Omega applier to add this really cool suspender top to the outfit!  You can always wear them separately too!  The skirt comes in loads of different colours to fit your mood of the day.  You can grab this gift by joining the Sn@tch VIP group for 200L, and clicking on the vendor in the VIP seating area.

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physic
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy

Now, go out my little ones – go out there, and stay weird!

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!
