The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Life’s A Beach

Life's A Beach

I’ve never actually been to a tropical beach.  You know, the kind with palm trees and the smell of coconuts (or at least that’s how I imagine it), but I have been to Mediterranean beaches quite often.  I think that sitting on sand and seeing the sun sparkle on the waves really is one of the best things you can do for your soul.  And as I always say, when you can’t get to it in real life – then hop to a beach in SL, because there really are some gorgeous ones out there.  I went to Adele and had a lovely time on the sand.  You should too!

Well Suited

My bathing suit today (which quite frankly, can double as a little summer top, or very short shorts if you want to get creative) is by Scandalize and is a second group gift for an upcoming event they’re hosting called Vanity.  If you join the Vanity group for free, then peek into notices, you will find this lovely bathing suit that suits me just fine!

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

I Want to Send You Selfies

Sending Selfies
Hi There Fab Free! I’ve had some time to squeeze in a little quickie I think you’ll be excited about. I’m just going to jump right in, how hot are these boots?! Love showed them to me first, she knows my style so well! I of course snatched them up right away. They are the free April group gift at Gos Boutique. In the past the Gos Boutique has had a join fee, however it is free to join at this time. I have no idea how long it will be free-to-join either, so get these gorgeous boots for free while you can!

They come in quite a few sizes, and there’s a “spring” color change hud that lets you pick from quite a few springtime colors for the boot, a few separate colors for the sole, and a couple of metal tones for the hardware. I feel like maybe these will be a limited time offer, so don’t wait! I’m including a copy of the vendor ad below so you can see some of the other colors and get another look at the cool perforated pattern.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Seeking the Sea

Seeking the Sea

I remember once, walking along the beach in Southern Italy.  It was hot.  It usually is there.  It was the end of the beach season though, so late August or early September – and the beach was mostly empty.  I was walking along, enjoying the sun, the light breeze and the carefree feeling of having sand between my toes, and water lapping at my ankles.  I looked up suddenly, and saw a dolphin swim by!  The magic of the beach does soothe the soul, and I know that the daily grind is wearing on me these days – time for a trip to the beach?  Maybe not in RL, but SL comes the the rescue again!

Beach, Please!

I found this glorious sundress – made for strolling along beaches, if you ask me, at DM Modas.  I joined their group for free and this amazing dress was all mine!  It comes with a really awesome texture change HUD, filled with 15 swirling summery designs that will set your heart aflutter.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Well darlings, may the beaches of SL and RL bring you peace and grounding!

Ink it Was Love at First Sight

Ink it was love at first sight
Oh my gosh, Becky look at her ink! She must be one of those shoppers who went to the Second Anniversary round of Bodyfy. Haha All silliness aside, there are quite a few free gifts at the current round of Bodyfy in celebration of their second year running. Most of the gifts are (you guessed it!) tattoos. I picked out four of the many gifts to share with you along with the free April group gift from Sevyn East.

Get Some Ink

Starting from the top with this brow tattoo Goth1c0. You may recognize the tattoo that reads “Stories to tell…” as it was a previous gift I showed here. If you missed it then, now’s your chance to pick it up for free at Bodyfy. Just pay the “panic” button at the Goth1c0 booth zero linden. This particular tattoo comes in a Catwa applier and an Omega applier.

Next up, not a tattoo, but rather feathery doll-like lashes. Another free gift at Bodyfy. these upper and lower lashes are an applier by MILA. These sweet lashes come in a Catwa applier only.

These sleeve tattoos by Ivory & Rose are my absolute favorite of the free gifts at Bodyfy. The colorful highly detailed tattoos come in fresh, fade, and worn versions in an Omega applier.

Finally, the black and grey detailed upper leg tattoo is also a free gift at Bodyfy. The tattoo is by Endless Pain. I think it’s both fierce and beautiful. It comes in a classic system layer as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. Like all the gifts at Bodyfy just pay the panic button zero linden to get your copy. No group required.

April at Sevyn East

This cute little bodysuit is the free April group gift at Sevyn East. You’ll need to join the Sevyn East group. The group is free to join at this time. The bodysuit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud. The hud has 8 color combinations to choose from.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs

Good afternoon Fabulouses!  You might be surprised how much power your own thoughts and actions make in not so stellar situations.  Positive intentions and focus on the things you have control over can make all the difference.  Squishy hugs to those that are struggling – hang in there!

Need a rosy little something?

Sometimes all you need is a rosy little something, and Ricielli has got your back… and your front, literally!  The Comfy Sweater as shown on my avatar is a Maitreya and Slink specific free group gift that you can pick up with your free group join.  This off the shoulder, cinched at the waist treat can be worn as a sweater or a dress depending on your mood and has the cutest sloppy sleeves.

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Love and I were having a serious conversation about Whitesnake videos.  I’m not even joking.  We were talking about the hair, the wind blowing, the billowing smoke… I have no idea how we got on the subject, it just kinda happened.  While we were discussing the finer points of 80’s hair bands, I heard that Seniha had a new group gift out, that really went with my 80’s rock mood…

Here I go Again…

The Tamara Dress from Seniha is a animal print and flower concoction that really just screams “cavort on the hood of a car!”.  I may be extrapolating, but anyway, I stick by my assessment!  You can grab this dress by joining the Seniha group for free!  Then you can put it on and be as awesome as you possibly can.

Quick!  To a car hood!
