You Make Me Happy, When Skies Are Grey

You Are My Sunshine
Hello there FabFree! I have a bit of a crazy day today, but I wanted to stop by here real quick and tell you about a sweet little gift that brought such a smile to my face!

You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine

At Cae, when you join their free inworld group you gain access to the many free group gifts on the VIP shelf, including the latest addition – The Sunshine Necklace.  I tried to get my photo in as close as I could so that you could see the tag that reads “You are my sunshine”.  This necklace comes in both short and long versions and includes a HUD that allows for three metal options and 15 gemstone colours.

Sweet April Showers

April Showers

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  While out on our evening jaunt that I mentioned in my last post, the pupster and I decided to check out the April Showers Hunt.  I am so glad we did because over at C!L Boutique, we discovered a gorgeous gown in a lovely soft teal shade, called “rain.”  Let me tell you, this stunner is well worth the small 1L price!

Ready for Dancing in the Rain

With an empire waist and a full length skirt, this frock will have you ready for formal events.  The bodice features a whimsical spiral design which draws the eyes upward to your bare shoulders.  If the evening is chilly or April showers begin to fall, don’t worry, because the generous designer tucked a cloak and a Victorian style umbrella into the package to shield you from the elements.  I opted not to wear them for my photo, but they add a vintage appeal to the outfit.   Also included (but not worn for my picture) a sheer veil can be worn over the skirt, which is quite pretty.  With classic and mesh body versions, this dollarbie hunt prize is a perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.  The April Showers Hunt runs until April 30th, and offers a myriad of prizes, all for 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/20/2018 – Continuum

Continuum Exterior
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! Fab Free Designer Friday is back this week. I know you’ll enjoy it! This week the post is all about Continuum Fashion. Continuum is a ladies clothing store split into two sections. One side is what you might call “going out” wear, think sexy cute dresses and skirts. The other side is shoes and frilly lingerie. As soon as you land at the Continuum main store, you’ll be greeted by new releases and the first opportunity to score a free gift.
Continuum Gifts & Offers
The Continuum Subscriber is located just outside the entrance. There is where you can pick up the free set of butterfly hair sticks, they are the current Subscriber gift. There is a discount area toward the back of the store with lots of cute inexpensive finds. The group Midnight Mania board is also located toward the back of the store. First, I’m getting a little ahead of myself. You’ll want to be sure and pay attention to the wall of group gifts behind the front desk just inside the entrance.

Continuum Gifts & Offers 2
The top photo above shows the wall behind the circulation desk at Continuum. There are several group gifts for various store affiliated groups to be had here. This is also where you will find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members, so don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. You may recall this Fabulous gift from Love’s post “Don’t Quit Your Daydream.” Also you will find the free Continuum Fashion group gifts on the same wall.  The Continuum Fashion group is free to join as well. Finally, that same back room I mentioned, it also has some group lucky chairs, alongside the Midnight Mania board, and the discounted items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

The Moon Sees Me

The Moon Sees Me
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I have had such a mixed up day, nothing terrible, I just keep getting my schedule wrong. So I decided to retreat into my favorite alternate reality, Second Life, and share a few lovely free April group gifts with you. First, this witchy tube top from Oubliette. Then these kick ass unisex kicks from Versov.

The Top – Gleefully I picked up this “boob tube” top from Oubliette. It is black and reads “WITCH” across the chest. It’s the perfect warm weather top for the little witchy side of my personality. I love how cute it is on, not too tiny but still a tube top. To get your free copy head over to the Oubliette shop and join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group if you’re not already a member. The group is currently free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Shoes – Run, don’t walk over to Versov and pick up these highly detailed unisex shoes. They are a free group gift at Versov, and the Versov group is free to join at this time. The shoes come in several male and female sizes, and have a color change hud that lets you pick between several preset colors for 9 individual parts of the shoe. I got the impression that the Versov group may not always be free to join, so don’t wait!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Male, Female), Signature, Slink (Male, Female), TMP (Male, Female), Unrigged, Aestethic

Here are the details, enjoy!

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

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!

It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere

wellmadegg
Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s gotta be 5 o’clock somewhere right?  I don’t drink all that often, but on a hot summer day, I enjoy a margarita – frozen or on the rocks, no matter! If it’s really good tequila, I’ll even drink it straight ;).    I know a lot of people take offence to tequila, and  I do have a rocky relationship with it myself.  The way I see it is this…  Tequila is kind of like that bad-ass boyfriend you know is going to be detrimental for you in the end, but you put up with his beastly behavior and risk it because you are enjoying the ride.

It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care

What inspired my fast forward into mid summer beverages on the patio, is this breezy little floral blouse I picked up at Wellmade as a free group gift!  It comes in fitmesh and several mesh body sizes as listed below and also includes a texture change HUD that allows for another print as well.  I have added the vendor ad below so that you can see them both 🙂

[WellMade] Alee Top

The Wellmade inworld group is free to join, and there are several group gifts that you can pick up once you join.

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus
  • TMP

CHEERS!
