Follow Your Dreams ~ They Know the Way

follow your dreams

Heya, Fab Free! I have yet more goodies to share with you from the beloved Stay at Home Club. Let’s take a look and make your dreams come true! After all, what’s more dreamy than all these free gifts that the wonderful club blesses us with?

Follow your Dreams

I loved the shirt by Emmergi, which is the store’s gift for women. The shirt reads: “follow your dreams, they know the way”. I love this saying and the graphic design used on the top.

Alba

This lovely skin, called Alba by Revoul , is a past sale item by the amazing creator. However, I have noticed that Alba has still been on sale for weeks and is still available to grab at this sale price at their store! This full skin fatpack only costs 69 Linden. It comes in a variety of light, mid-tone and dark natural skin tones. It’s on sale as part of the store’s “Mark Downiana Mondays” sales. To get the skin at this sale price, just head down to skins section of the store, find the vendor for Alba deluxe skin and the price is set to 69L for a limited time. I am not sure how long this item will be up for sale; it’s been there for a while, but I thought I should mention it while it’s still available! As all of the creations by Revoul, this skin is super gorgeous. Make sure you keep an eye out for future “Mark Downiana Mondays” sales at Revoul too, as there should be more new skins coming out for sale soon!

Follow your dreams, Fab Free! ❤

Purple Glory

Purple Dreams

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you’re all having fun this weekend and snatching up lots of sale items and freebies! I am going to share with you today pieces of this glorious purple outfit!

A Limited Edition Sale

Addams is having a limited edition sale of the Phoebe outfit- which includes this lovely sweater and jeans. These items are being sold in packs at 50 L each. What an amazing deal! Several textures and different colours come in each pack, but they are all in stripe options. This offer is only available this weekend, so head over to Addams ASAP to get Phoebe!

Feeling Fruity

The top I am wearing underneath is from Tooty Fruity. It is a past group gift, called Carlie top. Their group costs 99 Linden to join. The Addams special does not include the original under top for the special, so this top fits this outfit perfectly!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

A Free, Full Bento Mesh Head from Genus Project!

Free Genus Strong Head

Hey Fab Free! I have the most exciting news to share with all of you! Genus Project is giving away a completely free Genus head! The head is a full bento, BOM head which is also compatible with Genus appliers and Omega appliers. I will be showing you how to get the head, some basics on how to get started and some free skins, makeup and eyes you can pair with the head successfully. For those of you who need a mesh head for the first time or wanted a Genus head, now is the time to jump at the opportunity!

How to get the Head

When I opened my SL notices this morning I was truly stunned and amazed that Genus Project has released a new free head as a gift. I ran to my computer and grabbed the head as soon as I could! It was super exciting and it made me happy. The head is a strand of Genus’ Strong Head type, so it is more mature looking.

Here are some easy steps on how to grab the head:

  1.  Join the Genus Project Free Group. Copy and paste this join group URI into your SL chat or nearby chat: secondlife:///app/group/b153906f-38dd-0dd6-d327-345bef9f446e/about
  2. Open up the Notices in the Group info tab
  3.  Scroll down to the notice called “Support from the Genus Project Team” and accept the attached object. The object is called “GENUS Project – Genus Head – Strong Face GIFT001 – Mocap”

You can also grab the head at the mainstore, although it will be packed and hard to get in. You can grab a free BOM activator HUD and some free skins at the store as well.

Skin Hunt at Insol

There is a Stay at Home/ Quarantine themed hunt going on at Insol right now, and they have some 1L Genus head appliers as some of the hunt prizes. I am wearing the Mila skin in the Milk skintone, one of the hunt prizes, and I also grabbed the free Insol body appliers while I was there. These hunt gifts will allow you to use appliers so you won’t even need to try BOM yet if you aren’t ready to. Each skin on the hunt is 1 L only, and the body appliers are free. The body appliers aren’t hunt items; just click the free body appliers near the entrance of the store.

Need some makeup for your new head?

I also added some Genus makeup onto the Strong head. I selected some basic ones that are good to start out with on the Marketplace. This everyday lip balm pack from Ottilie is currently on promotion for 1L, which includes genus appliers, BOM and other head appliers. I also found an  eyeshadow from Pout! which is available as a gift in their marketplace store called Vibez Eyshadow which is 1 L only as well.  These shadows come in some basic colours to start you out. To top it off, I purchased a pair of eyes from Myria for 1 L which contain Genus applier eyes in blue, green and brown.

Now we’re all set! I used my own custom shape, but there are also shapes for the head available for free at Jinx/Kumio’s mainstore and on the marketplace.

Have fun playing with your new free Genus head, Fab Free!

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Someday….

Someday

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is off to a fantastic start.  Ripley and I paid a visit to one of our favorite shops today and picked up this lovely belted frock in a vibrant color (which happens to be my go-to shade to wear).  Best of all, it was completely free!

A Quiet Country Walk With My Pal

With its long skirt and sleeves, and high neckline, the Frill Sleeve Pleated Dress from S@bbia had me thinking of leisurely walks enjoying the crisp autumn air.  Since it has been over 110 degrees around my neck of the woods lately, I really, really am longing for the respite of fall!  Someday soon, it will come, right?  I just love the diamond patterned, lace texture on the fabric of this sweet dress and the way the belt is loosely knotted around my waistline.  My first thought for how to style it was to make my outfit a little bit country with cowgirl boots and a hat, but I spotted these cute Asymmetric Sandals in S@bbia, and decided to opt for slightly dressier instead.  Either way you go, this frock creates a charming look.  The folder includes just one size as well as an alpha layer for classic avatars, but I think it will work well with various mesh body types.  To add this versatile dress to your inventory, you need to be a member of the S@bbia group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up a copy without spending a single Linden dollar!  While you are at the store, you can try your luck on the Guess and Win board and check to see if your letter appears on one of the Lucky Boards.  If you bring along your own good luck charm, you just might walk away with more than one addition to your wardrobe.  I know I did 🙂

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Dress (one size)
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Only Us

Fenceline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a darling outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.  With a floral crop top and sleek shorts, this outfit will have you ready for a weekend adventure, without putting even so much as a tiny dent in your budget.

Pretty Floral Print

Lalie from WellMade has lots of fine details such as the semi transparent generous cuffs, the ruffled edge on the hem and coordinating ties dangling down on the sides of the shorts.  While I opted for a grayish botanical print and black shorts, with the enclosed HUD, you have three other options for the top and bottom that you can switch up and combine to your heart’s content.  Since each piece is worn separately, you can mix and match with other items already in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, since the WellMade group has no join fee, you can add this summery number to your inventory completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
