A special Gift

Glitterati by Sapphire has put out a special gift… the 9th Anniversary gift for the store. It’s a beautiful dress in a soft textured pink with a white lace hem and white lace sleeves. It’s perfect for every day casual wear, or even a date night.

You’ll need to wear your Glitterati group tag to get the dress and that will cost 100L, but it gives you access to every single past group gift that Glitterati has ever put out… and since the creator puts out a monthly group gift like clockwork, that’s a lot of gifts to be had. Plus you’ll get to look forward to another group gift come December! So this is a group well worth its join fee.

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

Something extra

I also stopped by E. Vary as one of their make up gifts had caught my eye. I love my current Maya applier that I’d picked up as a free gift (no longer available sorry!), it’s my new favorite, but I wanted a “pick me up” for it and decided that it needed a fresh look. E. Vary has out the Ilusion Gift as their free SL Frees & Offers gift. Just don your tag and pick it up for free. It’s an omega system applier make up.

I did discover that you either have to applier the lipstick or the eye-shadow and I wasn’t able to figure out how to apply both at the same time, but for free, I still feel the gift was well worth it. I donned one of the pretty lipstick shades to add to my look. I’ve included a picture of the HUD below to show you what all you will be getting with this free gift!

Sheer Days and Glitter Nights

Snapshot_002

If you are in need of a few sexy cocktail dresses for the month of September, [::FAX::] has you covered (or barely covered in the case of one of the dresses…). One is free and the other will only cost you 10L if you aren’t already a member of the Third Life Group. I think once you see these variations on the “little black dress” you’ll want them both!

Sheer Days!

The September group gift from [::FAX::] is sheer… and absolutely beautiful and pictured above. The [::FAX::] group is free to join making this gorgeous black wrap dress with the slim waistline belt free to pick up. It is sheer lace that somehow manages to give just enough coverage to keep things PG-13 with daisy accents and little rhinestones in the center of the daisies. This is a dress that goes zero to sexy in a nano-second and comes in all your favorite mesh sizes!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Glitter nights

Right next to the regular [::FAX::] group gift, is their Third Life Group Gift offering. It is just as lovely and is the glitter mini dress in the wrap style pictured above. The picture doesn’t do it justice as it has a lovely shimmery texture that really does seem to glitter.

If you’re not a member of the Third Life Group, the group will only cost you 10L to join, and it gives you access to gifts in stores across the grid, making it well worth the tiny fee. This dress also comes in a variety of sizes to suit your needs!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

From Head to Toe

The Seamstress 1

It’s Tuesday! And that means 25L specials! I made away like a bandit today and put together a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on. Some of you who don’t roleplay may like the looks of these deals too!

From Head to Toe!

I made my first stop at Calico where they have out two hairstyles for just 25L per color pack (or 150L for the fatpack). I chose the pretty “Daphne” style you see in my picture. It’s a fully mesh style, but also includes an optional flexi attachment (not shown) if you want some added softness. For just 25L per pack, this style is a steal!

A dress, a dress!

EvelineInTheBox never ceases to amaze me with pretty dresses for my wardrobe. This dress is perfect for roleplay (I’ve set myself up as a seamstress here in this scene, but this dress is really perfect for so many things), but this dress would also work great for a casual date or every day wear as well. Best yet for your 25L you also get a color change hud and 10 color choices, including brown, pink, moss, lavender, charcoal, red, sky (shown), black, olive, and salmon.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

The Seamstress 2

A free gift too

While I was at EvelineInTheBox, I took the opportunity to pick up their free Group gift! The group is free to join, and they currently have out these pretty leather and star anklets. These are made to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as there is a classic size with a resize script in the box.

One more stop.

I finished my wandering at On a Lark where I picked up a set of sandals. These flats are just 25L per color (or 150 for the fatpack of colors which includes all the colors plus all the metal textures too). I’m showing off the blue one’s here with the silver straps. For just 25L these Flat Sandals by On a Lark are a steal and come in sizes to fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

I’ve been a bad… bad… girl… and it’s written all over my body suit by 1 Hundred. 😀

The Cart Wash Sale is going strong!

Already you’ve seen several wonderful posts by our FabFree staff featuring great stuff by creators at the Cart Wash! Love showed you some beautiful beachwear here, Kat showed you something more casual here, and for the guys Carson showed off his beach gear from the Cart Wash here. I’ve been getting in the Wash action too, but today I decided to be a bad girl today and the 1 Hundred Cart had exactly what I needed!

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!
