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!

Time for a Redeux

Purple Flowers

Time for a Redeux.

The Redeux event began April 14th (so if you go now you will probably miss the major laggy crowds) but it lasts until April 21st so there is still plenty of time to snap up the deals. Many booths are out featuring 30L and 35L deals as well as each booth offers a free gift (no group required!)

Picking flowers.

I was picking up my free gifts at the Redeux event, and I happened to pick the box at the Sexy Princess booth and brought home the purple flowered romper you see in the picture above. (TIP: I noticed that some of the boxes don’t deliver when you click them, but if you right click and select “give me” or “touch” they will deliver that way.) This spring romper seemed perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, and it offered some favorite body sizes as well as standard fitmesh sizes with a quality alpha.

Sizes in the box:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Low Prim Living it up

Hello and welcome back to Monday, FabFree-ers! You know what’s guaranteed to banish the Monday blues? You guessed it – The Cart Sale. As I confessed to Pru the other day: I must have the cart Sale on the brain. Course, it’s hard not to when you see some of the marvelous things at the Wash!  Today, I checked out the Cart from Low Prim Living and I was not disappointed.

Low prim Living it up

This is the ‘Rustic Hutch with Dinnerware’.  For a tiny 6 prims, you get not only the hutch but also the kitchen stool and the pot of flowers. There are texture changes on the stool and the flowers and tons of dinnerware display. There are twenty different flowers to pick from alone!  Just the thing to perk up your kitchen or dining area. If you’re looking for something for the living room or bedroom you might like the Mesh ‘Sweet Dreams Chest’ for only 2 prims. The chest is loaded with five different adjustable sits and Blaze assures me the pillows are very comfy.

A Spring In My Step

FPH + DCNY

Today I picked up some things from the Flower Pedals Hunt. Each prize costs one linden. This hunt is super short (29 places) and really got me into a Springy mood.

Can’t you hear the birds chirping and the flowers blooming?

FPH Mouthy

This precious little mouthy is #4 in the Flower Pedals Hunt at Kre-ations Mainstore.

FPH Mouthy + Necklace

The Special Flower necklace comes from #24 Fujiwara’s World.

FPH Shoes

Number 7 in the FPH is from Nevermore Designs. They have three hunt prizes. One of them includes the black and pink ballet slippers above. Totally adorbs! Another prize is the Wingback Short Back Luxury Chair in Plum Butterlies shown below (5 poses).

FPH Chair

Where does the stellar Chevron mesh dress come from you ask? It is the DCNY item at My Attic @ The Deck. It costs 95L and comes in 10 colors. Lola Tangos applier also included (shown above). Comes with black and brown belts or no belt. I ADORE chevron patterns and plan to buy at least half the colors! Alas, I better hurry because the April Edition of My Attic runs through April 30th.

More to come this week from the awesome bright little Flower Pedals Hunt. ^~^
