Heaven let your light shine down

Heaven let your light shine down

Good morning, FabFree! I’ve had a 90s alternative station streaming on Amazon Music most of the morning. I really need to do that more often, all of the songs are sooooo good. Does that make me old? Don’t answer that. I mean, I was in middle school or high school when I listened to most of this music, but I suppose that doesn’t really make a difference. Well either way, it’s been a lovely morning…good music and a bikini to show you…both are things that make me happy!

The bikini is not just adorable, it’s also FREE. It is the current group gift at M*Motion and the group is free to join. There are lots of cute little details like the ties on the sides and little beads at the bottom of the strings and along the middle of the top that make it just perfect. The free gift is this pretty striped pattern in 3 sizes: Lara, Physique, and Isis.

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Sweet On You

FabFree: Sweet On You

Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s hotter than the hinges on the gates of Hades today so I thought I might live vicariously through Love Trill with a sticky sweet, somewhat free, cool look in hopes that it brings my core temperature down a little.

Happy Melons

This (fitted for Maitreya Lara) sweet Liberty Top in the Qtee Melon print is available at Nerido for FREE once you locate the hidden hunt icon for the Women Only Hunt (which is a coconut drink).  As I mentioned in a previous post [HERE], the Women Only Hunt doesn’t officially start until August 4th…  but if you are lucky, you’ll stumble across a store or two that does have their prizes out already!

Chill Out

Once I had my outfit together there was still something missing and I decided that a popsicle was just the thing.  I found this [ CP ] Popsicle that is texture change upon touch on the marketplace, priced at 0L.  It is not animated, but made for a really cute pose prop 😉

Still hot…  I may have to go buy RL popsicles…  or hmm freezies!

Small Town Girl

FabFree: Small Town Girl

Good evening Fabulouses!  This morning I mentioned that I have been doing some Around The Grid in 80 Days hunting and while I am not showing you a prize from that hunt today, I do want to share some news that I stumbled across while hunting!  Normally I don’t post twice in one day, but I was afraid this one might be a limited time offer and wanted to get the news out ASAP!

WHAT?  This is too good to be true!

When I stopped in at PP, I noticed there was a gift box on the reception desk (for everyone – not even a need to join the group!) that was labelled “Welcome Gift” and I was feeling very welcome already, but I thought – hey, what the heck.  I’ll grab it – it’s FREE!  Guess what it was?!  A free 200L instore credit.  Most of the items in the store are under 200L so you can pretty much pick out whatever you like from the store for free!  You’ll find a wide variety of women’s mesh clothing, shoes and accessory items to choose from.

What did I grab?

Right beside the reception desk at PP is a vendor containing the newly released Country Girl Outfit which was priced at 199L. I like this outfit so much, that I’m excited to try on the hunt gift I also picked up while I was there.  I’m curious to hear what you pick up!!  Tell us about it in comments 🙂

***  ETA:  Please note that now the offer does not pertain to new items, but the gift card is still available.

Hello July

Hello July

Happy Saturday or Sunday, Fabulouses (depending on where you are in the world)!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  The pupster and I decided to spend some of ours indulging in some budget friendly retail therapy.  After reading Aline’s post {HERE} in which she said there was another free super cute crop top over at FashionNatic, I decided to teleport over to the store and take a look around.  Boy, am I glad I did!

Thank you, Aline!!

The Nadia top is a flirty wrap style sleeveless shirt that includes a HUD packed with a fat pack of 30 textures.  I opted to shade all portions with a really pretty pink floral pattern, but I could just have easily colored the left side, right side, and tie differently.  That opens up a ton of variations!  With neck and back lines that plunge low, and a tummy skimming fit, you’ll be able to stay cool all summer long wearing this top.  Nadia coordinated well with my casual capris, but I could also see pairing it with a skirt for a dressier look.  The package contains versions for mesh bodies only.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the FashionNatic group tag (it’s completely free to join), click the vendor, and select “deliver.”

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Ripley and I are off to wander the grounds of the Mystical Fae sim.  It’s just so tranquil and beautifully landscaped.  I’d highly recommend a trip there!  Until next time, happy shopping.

Catch a Wave With Me

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Come on down to Basil Bay, and join me for a beach party!  The sun is shining, the sand is warm beneath my feet, and the inviting water is there to cool us off.  I brought plenty of food, a cooler full of beverages, and of course, a container full of Ripley Snacks.  (The pupster is hoping you’ll bring along some canine pals, too.)  The more, the merrier!  Now, that’s the way to spend a Saturday!

But First, a Bit of Shopping

Before you pack your sunscreen and towel, I have a couple of budget friendly finds to share with you that are perfect for a day at the beach.  Since showing a bit of skin is part of the package, I decided to add some new body art that I picked up at the Jersey Shore for just 10L.  The Troy Lite Tattoo covers both my arms with intricate designs.  I really like the diamonds at the edge of my wrists.  You can pick up a copy for yourself at Addicted to Ink’s stall over at the Jersey Shore.  The package includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, and Slink, and is specially priced at the event for only 10L.

Looking for a Terrific Tank?

I wanted everyone to be able to see my new tats, so a tank top was the way to go for the day.  Luckily, I discovered a specially priced one at Redangel Designs.  Right now, the shop is offering the Arnold Tank at a reduced price specifically for members of the Redangel Designs group.  Normally sold for 499 Linden dollars, for a limited amount of time, members can purchase this top for just 50 Linden dollars.  The package includes fits for classic and mesh bodies, as well as a texture change HUD with 8 color options.  That’s kind of like getting eight tops for just 50L.  Count me in!  Joining the group will set you back 25L, but that opens up six lucky chairs, a midnight madness board and a gift board which are exclusively set up for group members.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Adam
    • Aesthetic
    • David
    • Gianni
    • Jake
    • Slink
    • TMP

Those Eyes

Take in All the Sights

Of course, ya gotta be able to enjoy the panoramic vistas of the beach, and what better way to do so than through a new pair of peepers?  The other day, Kat shared a cute crop top in honor of Pride Month, but for me, I’m gonna show my support every day, ALL month long with my new Pride Eyes that I picked up as a free group gift over at the Madame Noir Store.  With both mesh and applier versions for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, these eyes are quite versatile.  Using the included HUD, you can select either large or small irises.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Madame Noir Store group, but it’s completely free to join.  I don’t know how long these will be available, but if you are looking for some vibrant and colorful eyes to sport, I’d recommend a trip over to the Madame Noir Store.

So, what time can I plan for your arrival?  I’ll be here all day, just taking in the rays, grilling some burgers, and looking forward to catching a wave or two.  I hope you come on down!

~ Stan (Kat)

Black Beauty in June

Make a Statement
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Maybe it’s just me but once in a while I still have a thing for what most would call “statement” jewelry. I don’t mean statement in that it has actual words but in that the jewelry its self is a statement. The recent free Subscriber gift from Graffitiwear definitely fits that description.

I really like the almost tribal feel of the necklace and the inclusion of a dainty floral pattern in this jewelry set. The free set from Graffitiwear includes earrings, bangles, and a necklace. Also, each piece has resize scripts for easy fitting. If you’re not already a Graffitiwear Subscribo member, you can join at the Grafftiwear main location. Already a member but missed the gift? You can still rejoin and get the gift for free!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Watch The Wind Blow By

Watch The Wind Blow By

Oh hi there. I’m just enjoying the view and the breeze blowing in from the ocean, and thinking long thoughts. For instance, whose genius idea was it for the tooth fairy to come get teeth from under a kid’s pillow? Like really? Shouldn’t that first parent have been like, “let’s put the tooth in the living room, way far away from the sleeping child’s head and the tooth fairy can get it from there” or something? Because that would make my life a whole lot easier. This totally random thought is brought to you because my oldest child lost her first tooth last week. Wow I have digressed a looooot from the things I wanted to tell you about. Let’s get back on track!

No Long Thoughts Needed!

This free and super cute romper from Scandalize was a no brainer, even for me! I love the hood and how the back is kind of pushed up. The front is to die for as well with a super sexy neckline and a really cute tie at the waist. It’s perfect beachwear for when you’re not in the mood for a bikini. To gets yours, tp over to Scandalize. Right out front there’s a sign that you can click on to join the Vanity Event group (free to join) and then right above that are your free goodies. You’ll get the pale pink version that I’m wearing as well as one in ombre, both sized for:

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

Wind Blown Locks

My hair is a freebie too! It’s an in-store gift at Exile, and perfect for when you need that swept away look.

Strike a Pose

Wait, one last thing before you go get your cute outfit and hair! I’m sure you’re already a member of the FabFree group so this one will be simple. [west end] has a great pose pack, including the one I’m using here, in their mainstore as a FabFree free group gift. You’ll just need to active your FabFree group or join for free if you’re not a member yet and go click the vendor.
