Wrap me in Bows

071422 - Wrap me in Bows 01

FabFree @ Fifteen Continues…

Today I am bringing two items from Fabulously Free’s Birthday Event. The first is this beautiful set of bow jewelry that I am wearing and the second is the cheerful flower field I’m standing in. And now that I’ve called them “first” and “second” I’m going to confuse you and talk about the second one first! Dr. Seuss is in the house.

  • .Lunaria. is the location for this fun little tulip field. It is there fabulous FREE gift for FabFree at Fifteen. The gift comes with both a static and animated version. It is all mesh, copy/mod and only 1 Li at its given size. Don’t forget your FabFree group tag to get it!
  • The bow jewelry that I am wearing are all from Beloved Jewelry by Kimbra McMillan. If you have never seen Beloved Jewelry, you are in for a treat. The amount of detail and customization options that go into her work is incredible. Let me break these down for you:
    • The spine piercings are actually part of the Miix 69L Sale, and are at her mainstore. I added them because I thought they would really finish the look. It fits Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink and comes in large and small versions.
    • The earrings are the L$15 item for FabFree @ Fifteen and unrigged. They come in two sizes and two versions. I should add you can change the metal and gem textures with one HUD and the tint/color of the bows with another on all these jewelry items.

  • Two more…
    • The choker is the discounted exclusive item, and only L$25!!! It is unrigged and comes with two sizes each in two different versions.
    • Finally, the FREE item is a set of these darling hair clips, again unrigged and in two versions. Check out the one I’m wearing here:

Garden Dreams

Garden Dreams

It’s Officially Open!

Aline recently posted all the details about the Second Life birthday celebrations here, so make sure to check out her post. SL19B is officially open now, so all can teleport in (if you can make it)! As you may know, every booth has a free gift and there are 20 sims and 400 stores this round. Personally, I went about it by starting at the Zinnia region in the northwest corner and move clockwise to complete the event rejion-by-region. Here’s a map of the 20 regions that Dreamer’s Virtual World posted on their blog if you need a reference point! Use the “World Map” to track your progress and this map will come up on your screen; you will see what direction your avatar is moving in with the map open. This one will take you a while!

Care for a Pergola?

This pretty pergola (the large wooden structure) is a free gift from Noveny @ SL19B. This is a really pretty gift, and I set up a garden scene to showcase it. I’m also showing some discounted decor available from [QE Home] @ SL19B, so check out my credits to see these 50% off home and decor promotions. You will find many sales at the 19th birthday celebrations from 20%-75% off at each store. It’s time to get some discounted shopping in as well as free gift collection! Some of the sales are as good as Black Friday!

Purple Daisies

Lunaria has a tonne of Midnight Madness Board prizes at their store for all to play for free, and no group join is required to get them. The pretty purple daisies with ground cover in my scene are from the boards. For these boards, you just tap all of them, and you get entered into the contest until they fill up. They don’t time out at midnight, so you are guaranteed to win all the MM prizes!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

Nymph 1

I always feel like it’s pretty special when I can find gifts to put together a free roleplay outfit. Especially one that I feel is top quality. I’ve already shown you some of the great gifts to be had at the Gacha Garden in my posts here and here, but I wanted to make sure that I put together a roleplay look when I discovered that several quality roleplay creators were involved in the event!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

I’m not sure if I feel like a Nymph or a Dancing Girl in this silk and chains outfit by Broken Style, but I do know it is beautiful. This free gift at the Gacha Garden by the Broken Style gacha machine includes a skirt and top that are separate and come in one Maitreya Lara size.

The top includes the mesh arm wraps that move beautifully with your avatar (I didn’t have any clipping issues at all) so they would be perfect for dancing and they worked great with my Animation Override. The detail on the chains and the breast plates is simply stunning.

Nymph 2

The Tattoo…

I picked up the free gift bag at Fallen Gods and saw that it was a tattoo and wasn’t sure what to expect… and then I was blown away at how beautiful this forehead tattoo was. I was even more thrilled at the fact that it is a full fatpack of colors — 19 colors in fact. You’ll get system layers if you are still rocking your system head as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads. I found it easy to apply the tattoo to my Catwa head. (Color shown is “blood.”)

The Crowning Glory…

Near the Kite gacha machine I picked up the free gift and it gave me what became the “crowning glory” of my outfit… this flowered crown of roses. Inside the free gift package is three different colored rose crowns: pink, rose (shown), and white. So you’re sure to find a color to match other roleplay outfits as well as this one. It was also easily editable to get it to fit with my head and hair. I just stretched it a bit and adjusted it and voila, it was perfect!

Enjoy the gifts at the Gacha Garden and if you decide to wear this out to roleplay, Happy roleplaying!

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Bike-Riding Attire

Bike Ride

Hello FabFree! *Waves!* I’ve been busy moving in real life to a new house and it’s kept me away (and very busy). I just put the finishing touches on my new kitchen! I moved from an apartment to a house and now have a back yard! I’m so excited! My new neighborhood has sidewalks that are great for bike riding, so I thought a bike ride in second life would be perfect to commemorate my return to FabFree after my hiatus! I found this quaint neighborhood with a bike rezzer and took a ride!

My riding attire…

… is almost entirely from one place! You’ll want to pick up all these goodies to enjoy for your own adventures!

Feeling Lucky!

I guess it was my lucky day at Graffitiwear as well! I won both this shirt and these shoes on “lucky” items. The shirt is from the Group Only Lucky Board at Graffitiwear. The group is only 5L and gives you access also to a Midnight Mania Board as well as a monthly group gift, so it’s well worth joining. My letter came up and the Silk Top was mine! It comes with a color change hud that includes 8 different textures. Sizes included: Standard Mesh XXS – L and Maitreya.

I also took a dive into the free Lucky Dip and came up with the free pair of bunny shoes you see in the picture! How cute are these! You’ll get them in black and white both, as well as fits for both Slink and Maitreya feet!

Top it off!

I really loved the Subscriber Gift at Graffitiwear for June. If you are not currently a subscriber, be sure to go subscribe and get your free Flower Head Wreath to decorate your favorite hair style. If you are currently a subscriber and missed getting the gift, just slap the sign above the subsciber and it will be delivered to you for you to wear!

Aloha!

Tiki Times_001

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!
