Time To Relax

Good Morning

Some of my favorite moments in life are when I get to have quiet time with nothing to do and nowhere to be. This new group gift towel wrap from Legal Insanity made me want to run a nice hot bath and relax with a great book! This “towel dress” is a FREE gift for Legal Insanity group members. The Legal Insanity group is FREE to join. I kinda like the idea of somehow making this cute mesh wrap part of an outfit but I just didn’t pull it off. I could also see wearing it over your swimwear as a cover-up. The cute pattern and vibrant colors would be great for the pool or the beach.

Pru is also wearing a FREE group gift from ASO!. The dainty bow around her neck is FREE for ASO! group members, and the group is also FREE to join. This delicate bow is mesh and comes in several colors. I like that it’s simple and feminine, and I think it is a great alternative to a traditional necklace, or even a collar.

Next, I love this sweet face from Mudskin. Right now Mudskin group members can score a Lelutka head applier, and a matching Maitreya (body/hands/feet) applier for the Maitreya Lara body by stalking the lucky letter boards. There are 3 different variations to be had, I was lucky and managed to get the Reina appliers. The applier for the Lelutka heads includes brow and freckle options. So if you wear the Maitreya Lara body and or any of the Lelutka mesh heads, these FREE lucky letter prizes are a must-have. Additionally, the Mudskin group is FREE to join. Please note that the individual skin is not included in these lucky letter prizes, just the mentioned appliers.

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

5 July 2015 [1]

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

5 July 2015 [2]

The second thing you need is this fabulous rigged mesh gift hair from rezology called Save the Queen. It is a steal that even Queen Mab will approve of for the sweet price of only 1L on the Market Place and comes with a fully customizable hud that lets you tint the hair first with a base color and from there even further with a secondary tint to get the hair your perfect shade. It’s the first hair hud of this kind I’ve seen and I was very impressed with the way it worked (and the control it gave me over the colors I could achieve!).

5 July 2015 [3]

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!

Weekend Independence!

Hello FabFree Folks and Happy Independence Day to all us crazy Americans! I hope your day is filled with festivities and fire works!

Weekend Independence

My SL day started off with a bang when I got the group notice from Heydra about the great weekend event going on right now. Heydra is celebrating Independence Day with a 40% off everything ( except limited Venders) in the store AND they’ve made the group FREE to join over the weekend.  This is your opportunity to get in on a great Group with a very generous perks such as member only Lucky Chairs, Midnight Mania boards and monthly group gifts. And if that wasn’t enough group members get 300L instore credit every month!

I popped over to Heydra this morning and found this charming tee and scarf set on the camping chair and … yes… I camped!  This is the ‘Charlotte shirt with scarf and HUD’.  The HUD lets you pick fifteen colors/patterns for the tee and ten colors/patterns for the scarf. While I was there, I grabbed these cute distressed ‘Hayley’ jeans from the past group gifts wall.

I rounded off my shopping today with a quick trip to the Marketplace and found this adorable tote bag. This the “American Flag Tote Bag” from Things i Like. It’s beautifully detailed and comes with an animation for a hand hold or a shoulder hold. And it only set me back 25L. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Okay, I’m of to fire up the grill for our cook out and light some sparklers. Y’all have a wonderful 4rth of July!

Belle Epoque has a really pretty new group gift for everyone to take advantage of!  The medieval Merewald dress is available in three colours as a free group gift after activing  your inworld group tag.  The group is free to join.

I can see this dress being worn as a medieval type roleplay dress or even as a modern day boho gypsy or hippie style dress.  I am wearing the blue version above, but have included the designer’s vendor ad below so you can see all three colours in the gift.

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

garden1

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do ;) . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality :) .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*
