Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!

I’ll hold on to what I’m missing the most

I'll hold on to what I'm missing the most

Ahhhh can’t you just feel the sea breeze on your face and smell that salt in the air? Those are definitely some of my favorite things, but I’ll try to focus because I have exciting things to tell you about!

Today is a big day. Let me count the ways:

  1. Two posts in one day! But maybe not really because I did the one from this morning last night. Still counts though.
  2. On this day, 3 months ago, I did my first post for FabFree! Can you believe that you’ve been putting up with me for three whole months already? Yeah, me neither.
  3. The Cart Sale starts today!  If you’re not familiar with this sale, it’s pretty simple. Just tp over to The Wash and you’ll see lots of carts lining the road, full of wonderful offerings. There’s clothes, furniture, decor, and so on…a nice little mix of everything. There are great designers selling things for 10L each, with some freebies sprinked in as well. What’s not to love?

My Favorite Flower

Tulips are my favorite flower. They are so pretty and happy and springy, I just love them. They were even my wedding flowers (RL not SL…I’ve never had a wedding in SL but that’s a story for a different day). So when I saw the lovely tulip pattern on this great maxi dress from baci, I knew right away that it would be my first post for The Cart Sale! It comes in these sizes:

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

It’s just the perfect sweet, casual look to wear as summer winds down.

Just let me have my fun tonight, a’ight

Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

I tend to forget about Pink when I’m shuffling music which is unfortunate because she’s got some really great songs, like the one that I borrowed my title from for this post. I had to listen to it like 3 times to decide which line to use, I wanted to use all of them! …but that would have been a ridiculously long title. Anyway, today I’m wearing a whole bunch of Suicidal Unborn. There are a ton of free group gifts available and they’re all really great, so I’ve combined three of them here – my top, necklace, and eyes.

The Shirt

Shall we discus my shirt first? Ohhhh the shirt. lol I really like it. Because seriously, who hasn’t felt this way? Especially in Second Life where I would argue that the boys in question are not necessarily more prevalent, but definitely bolder. It’s a bit crass perhaps, but oh so accurate! Because there is only one way to say some things. This particular free group gift has an included HUD containing 6 color options and comes in 5 sizes, XXS-L. It did take a bit of alpha’ing to make it fit but I was able to get a perfect fit easily.

The Eyes

If you’re an eye snob like me, then you have to go to Suicidal Unborn. Seriously, the eyes are gorgeous. There are gacha machines in the store with eyes and lots of really cool styles available, but these are a free group gift! I tried to crop my picture a bit tight so you can see them, they are so so pretty. You can also click the picture to see it in flickr if you’d like to get a closer view. My only issue with the group gift eyes is that there is no catwa applier (the other eyes in the store do have a catwa applier) but that seems like a minor gripe, all things considered. I’m just really terrible, bad, and no good at editing eyes so please excuse me if they’re not fitted quite right. What it DOES come with is classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD fuuuull of colors to choose from! The HUD also lets you change the left and right eye independent of each other, so you can have 2 different color eyes of you want to. It’s really fantastic and so pretty. Did I say that already? Because they’re really pretty.

The Necklace

I love finding quality jewelry and this cool choker totally falls into that category. It has interlocking chain in the front and the back is a leather band. It also includes a HUD that allows you to chain the color of the metal and has 3 options for how distressed the leather is. All as part of a free group gift.

The Suicidal Unborn group is 100L to join but there are quite a lot of gifts available. I would happily have paid that for any one of these gifts, and instead I get ALL of them plus a bunch more. Yes, please! You can find these and all of the other group gifts behind the front desk when you enter the store.

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

My picture today is chock-full of freebies, it’s very exciting. Don’t believe me? Just watch.

The Dress

I think this is just the sweetest dress. It comes with a HUD so you can choose from 4 different colors. I got it at Synford Style. When you land, you will be invited to join a group – that is not the one that you need to be in to get the free gifts. Instead you’ll need to join the Synford Style VIP group, which is also free. Then you’ll have access to the free group gifts, including this dress. It comes sized for the following bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

And The Necklace

I’ve been meaning to join the Nanika group and finally did. The join fee is only 50L and there are 3 really great necklaces set out as free group gifts. I’m a sucker for this choker style tied in a bow. It includes a HUD for 4 color options.

And Even The Pose

This pose is part of a pack of 5 that are a free gift for the #Faded group. The group is free to join. They’re all really natural, pretty poses – my favorite kind.

How We Roll

How We Roll

So I was unpacking some more of my awesome Redeux gifts and realized that TODAY is the last day of the event. I couldn’t resist showing you one more quick look with some of the gifts that I picked up there – specifically this necklace, top, and skirt. Don’t they look great together? And they’re all free! But don’t look too long, because Redeux ends TODAY.

Redeux, redeux

This event has already gotten quite a bit of coverage on FabFree, but that’s because there are so many great gifts. Most recently, Serena blogged it here and she’s got links on that post to the other times it’s been blogged. Links within links, it’s like the movie Inception up in here.

When you get to Redeux makes sure you join the free Redeux VIP group so you can pick up all your gifts. Oh and did I mention that it ends TODAY?

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Hi guys! I have a quickie for you today. Just a pretty little dress that will make you feel like a princess and a lovely necklace.

I feel pretty

I picked up this fun and flouncy dress at Shoenique. The flower on the front is removable and the white spot on the skirt isn’t really there, it’s just a little bit of light from my windlight setting. It is the April free group gift but it is still available and I don’t imagine that it will go away soon because there is a whole wall of past group gifts as well. Just join the Shoenique group for free and click away!

Dress Sizes:

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus, Isis
  • Slink hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • 5 standard sizes L-XXS

I also feel lucky

There are three free lucky boards at Chain, currently stocked with two necklaces and a really great dress that I had to have! The boards are open to everyone, no group join is required. I did eventually win the dress (YAY!) but before that I won and photographed this cute little look. Maybe I’ll show you the dress later, but right now look how fabulous this necklace is!
