BYRNE – The Instruments Gift

Sunset

Happy Sunday Fab Free! Today I have another Fabulous creation from BYRNE to share with you. This gorgeous gown and matching hat are a current FREE gift at The Instruments. I had a serious “My Fair Lady” moment in this fully mesh dress and elaborate hat. It is easy to imagine yourself as a modern day Eliza Doolittle while wearing this great dress.  I love the two slits in the front of the skirt and the sort of smokey lace-like pattern. The dress alone is just beautiful on, and the addition of the hat adds a bit of a dramatic yet elegant flair. This event will run until August 6th, and there are several gifts to be had simply by wearing your “The Instruments. the event” tag. The group is FREE to join.

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers

Sometimes, we all need a week at home and a little snuggling and “me” time… but really, this entire post was inspired by a chance encounter…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [1]

So it was Fifty Linden Friday and I landed at Sway’s to pick up their deal of the day when I noticed they had out this gorgeous FREE gift! A rainbow heart couch with single sits and LBGT cuddle sits and it’s only two prims. You don’t need a group and you just pick it up courtesy of their store for FREE! I won’t get into politics, but it hit close to home and is a cause close to my heart, so I snatched up the gift and decided, this would be the “heart” of my post for the week (yes pun intended!)

Later I happened to be at on9 when I noticed they had some fabulous gifties out for visitors. There are several items out, and the group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. I picked up the clutch in mango but there were also several lovely mesh dresses and some accessories as well!

And let’s not forget that the Hair Fair ends today! Don’t miss your last chance to get the great gifts that are just there waiting for you!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [2]

Astrid is sporting this sexy short style from which was a FREE gift from Calico in a rich brown called Quinn and I topped it off with the FREE gift from Tableau Vivant — a sexy flower headband. Both creators were generous with their Hair Fair gifts. Calico’s Quinn is a fatpack of full colors and Tableau Vivant’s flower giftie comes in a fatpack of six sexy colors!

This photo is also a great shot of my jewelry, which you can grab for a sweet steal of a deal for only 50$L a spin at OMG – Oh My Gatcha right now. It comes in either gold or silver and Meva outdid herself in the gorgeous details on this flowery jewelry set. I love that the rings come in a right or left hand choice setting and that the jewelry is easily modifiable for sizing!

If you look close you’ll also notice my Tango nail appliers. These are another great find — this time from the marketplace. That’s right! Alaskametro has done it again! Another great palate of 12 colors for only 10$L. Don’t miss out on this “Tango” applier set!

But were not done yet… you have one more stop before you can relax. Head over to Kaithleen’s to pick up the latest group gift. This sweet mesh green dress comes in all the standard sizes is a FREE group gift right now. The group is FREE to join and I love the off the shoulder style and the lovely detailing at the top.

All in all, it made for a great day at home. I’m feeling the love! And I’m loving my new couch. (And for only two prims only my house is loving it too!) Time for a couch nap!

Frolicking in color

Frolicking in Color

This swirl of color caught my eye at the Fasiontropic event and when I saw the 7L price tag I couldn’t leave this deal behind. The event only runs til July 30th so you need to hop skip and jump on over and snap up this lovely !:Lyria: Mea mesh maxi dress right away.

 

Feeling very in the mood for color today when I saw this FREE face make-up from Madrid Solo I knew it was worth doing the Body Art hunt that runs til July 31 to get it. I will warn this item has been hidden well and may take you a bit of looking. Because of this I am going to give the provided hint which is “between good and evil” plus a bit of an extra hint from me :) You are looking for a purple ink bottle, dig deep down into something of the same color.

Frolicking in Color

I am off to frolic in color til next Saturday when I will have more goodies for you!

Come frolic with me, here is how:

Dress: !:Lybra: – Mea (Fashiontropic event) ends on July 30th FREE

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Xmas in JulyWe’re starting to wind down to the end of July, and there are a whole bunch of hunts ending on the 31st that you probably want to get in on. There is no shortage of themes… sun, cats, explosions, tea, vikings, and yes… even Christmas. That’s right… Christmas. Just have a look at the hunts in this report if you don’t believe me.

Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

CasualFun3

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service :) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

CasualFun4

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

CasualFun2

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area :) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

The Future of FabFree

Hello Fabulous Readers, Group Members and Designers,

If you have been keeping up with the blog posts, you may be aware I have just returned from a two week vacation enjoying some sunny R&R.  During that much needed down time, it has come clear to  me that I while I have been busy organizing FabFree, I have been denying myself some of the things that I enjoy in that crazy thing called “real life”, but also within Second Life as well.  This decision is something I have been considering for a few months, however I had been so hectic with a busy RL and a busy SL that I hadn’t really taken the time to sit down and hash it out properly.  I just kept on going to keep up with everything.

It is with bittersweet sentiment that I have decided as of July 31st,  I will be stepping down from my FabFree organizing duties to give myself more freedom.  I do plan to continue logging inworld to “play” and will continue blogging, but on a lighter basis.

Despite the fact that organizing FabFree literally fell into my lap after the departure of our previous organizer, Renee Lowenhart, it has been my  pleasure to have had the opportunity to lead (with MUCH help of the team members) such a “fabulous” organization since December 2012. It is, however…  time for someone else to take the reigns and bring FabFree into it’s 8th year in Second Life.  It is with great relief and excitement that as of August 1st –  Prudence Rexroth, currently FabFree Blogger Manager with nearly two years with FabFree will be stepping up as the new Fabulously Free in SL organizer, and Julianna Seriman who has been blogging with us since November 2014 will be assisting her as Co-Organizer.  I have all the confidence in the world that these two ladies will bring fantastic things to FabFree in it’s next phase.

I cannot express enough how thankful I am to all of the bloggers, group moderators, designers and helpers that have been such a huge support to FabFree and myself over the last two and a half years.  It takes a small army to run FabFree and it wouldn’t have been possible without you.  It has been my pleasure to work beside you, sharing ideas – and for the friendships that have developed  along the way (that I intend to keep, btw!) ;).  Thank you also to those who support FabFree by reading the blog or joining our inworld group.  It may seem like an easy job for you, but it means a whole lot to me that you are part of FabFree!

With this news, the designer application process will be closed until September 1st so that our new management can familiarize themselves with the new routine.

Thank you all for your understanding!  If you have any questions, please contact me inworld.
