Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

I Want to Send You Selfies

Sending Selfies
Hi There Fab Free! I’ve had some time to squeeze in a little quickie I think you’ll be excited about. I’m just going to jump right in, how hot are these boots?! Love showed them to me first, she knows my style so well! I of course snatched them up right away. They are the free April group gift at Gos Boutique. In the past the Gos Boutique has had a join fee, however it is free to join at this time. I have no idea how long it will be free-to-join either, so get these gorgeous boots for free while you can!

They come in quite a few sizes, and there’s a “spring” color change hud that lets you pick from quite a few springtime colors for the boot, a few separate colors for the sole, and a couple of metal tones for the hardware. I feel like maybe these will be a limited time offer, so don’t wait! I’m including a copy of the vendor ad below so you can see some of the other colors and get another look at the cool perforated pattern.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Real Life has got me away from my life in SL more than usual lately but today I have the fun of introducing this week’s Fab Free designer of the week, 7Deadly Skins. The 7Deadly Skins store is beautifully done and the landing point is as pretty as the skins the shop has to offer. Here you’ll find both male and female skins on multiple floors, and gifts for the guys as well as the ladies. Along with gifts there’s a sale currently going on, and you’ll find that 7Deadly Skins is participating in several events with opportunities to purchase their skins at event prices. As you enter the store you’ll find the group gift of the month for ladies and one for the gents behind the front desk. The 7Deadly Skins group has a one time join fee of 275 linden. Along with the monthly gifts, there are group only lucky boards, mini mania and more!

Date Night Ready!

Black Lace

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  I have lots of things to get accomplished in RL today, but wanted to publish a quick post that features this sweet black lacy concoction. The Iris Dress is just perfect for a Saturday night date, and it’s free!

All Dolled Up

With sexy cut outs in the sides that show off a glimpse of skin and translucent lace, your avatar will look fantastic in this sexy frock.  Best of all, you won’t have to spend a fortune to look fabulous!  I love the floral pattern and the asymmetrical hemline of the skirt in my new dress.  While out in public, I made strategic use of the alpha layer of my Maitreya body to ensure my bits were concealed, but when back at home after a date night, the alpha layer won’t be needed! 😉 The free package includes both red and black versions of this mini for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Julia’s Scandal, activate the group tag (it’s completely free to join!), and tap the vendor.  You (and your date) will glad you did!

What’s Included:

  • Classic Avatar (in black and red)
  • Alpha layer
  • Ebody (in black and red)
  • Freya (in black and red)
  • Hourglass (in black and red)
  • Maitreya (in black and red)
  • Physique (in black and red)
  • Venus (in black and red)

The pupster and I are off to complete as many errands and household chores as we can.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Ink it Was Love at First Sight

Ink it was love at first sight
Oh my gosh, Becky look at her ink! She must be one of those shoppers who went to the Second Anniversary round of Bodyfy. Haha All silliness aside, there are quite a few free gifts at the current round of Bodyfy in celebration of their second year running. Most of the gifts are (you guessed it!) tattoos. I picked out four of the many gifts to share with you along with the free April group gift from Sevyn East.

Get Some Ink

Starting from the top with this brow tattoo Goth1c0. You may recognize the tattoo that reads “Stories to tell…” as it was a previous gift I showed here. If you missed it then, now’s your chance to pick it up for free at Bodyfy. Just pay the “panic” button at the Goth1c0 booth zero linden. This particular tattoo comes in a Catwa applier and an Omega applier.

Next up, not a tattoo, but rather feathery doll-like lashes. Another free gift at Bodyfy. these upper and lower lashes are an applier by MILA. These sweet lashes come in a Catwa applier only.

These sleeve tattoos by Ivory & Rose are my absolute favorite of the free gifts at Bodyfy. The colorful highly detailed tattoos come in fresh, fade, and worn versions in an Omega applier.

Finally, the black and grey detailed upper leg tattoo is also a free gift at Bodyfy. The tattoo is by Endless Pain. I think it’s both fierce and beautiful. It comes in a classic system layer as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. Like all the gifts at Bodyfy just pay the panic button zero linden to get your copy. No group required.

April at Sevyn East

This cute little bodysuit is the free April group gift at Sevyn East. You’ll need to join the Sevyn East group. The group is free to join at this time. The bodysuit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud. The hud has 8 color combinations to choose from.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs
Skin – Essences  – Amber
Bikini – .:: KENODOXY ::. – Bea deux-pieces – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 04/07/2018 – Ari’s Bazaar

Ari's Bazaar
Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! Thank’s for being here. This week Ari’s Bazaar is the featured Fab Free Designer of the week. The fashion style of the clothing at Ari’s Bazaar is super feminine. You’ll find pretty casual wear and beautiful formal gowns. There are also some nice nail appliers to go with all the new dresses you’ll be tempted to buy! The Ari’s Bazaar shop is small, which I like because it’s very easy to see everything and nothing is hard to find. There’s even a small section of more seasonal clothing such as swimwear upstairs. To get to the second floor, find the “Teleport” sign near the desk and then look for the teleport disc on the floor. All the gifts and group offers however are conveniently on the first floor in the main room.

Ari's Bazaar Gifts
The Ari’s Bazaar group gift is just inside the entrance on the wall by the door. This cute gift is FREE to Ari’s Bazaar group members, and the group is FREE to join. You’ll notice right away there are a few gifts for store associated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL on the wall to the right. You’ll need to wear the right group tag for each of these gifts. The Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You won’t want to miss the cute purple dress that is an exclusive for Fab Free group members. On the same wall there are 2 Ari’s Bazaar group lucky letter boards and a Daily Prize board. Just don’t forget your Ari’s Bazaar group tag to participate! Happy shopping Fab Free!
