If you haven’t… you should…

Sitting Pretty_001

If you haven’t… you should…

If you haven’t checked the FabFree group gift list lately you should. Just click [Here], or on the icon along the right side of the blog, and you’ll find a long list of stores offering amazing free gifts exclusively to FabFree group members. I was browsing the listing and happened upon the Satus Inc. FabFree gift and decided I really wanted to pick it up!

I teleported over to Satus Inc. and picked up this Rye Tied Pink shirt. It’s a lovely knit fabric with side splits and the beautiful detail of ties on the sides to keep the fabric together. It comes in several handy mesh body sizes. As always, Fabfree gifts are free with your Fabfree group tag.

Shirt Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something to match.

I needed a skirt to match and so I hopped over to Atik where I saw that the April group gift, free to group members (the group is free to join) was a great compliment to my top! It’s a cute miniskirt with a soft floral pattern, perfect for the coming spring air that I keep hoping for!

Skirt sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Vision in Pink_002

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Tending Bar_002

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!

!gO! Get your Easter Dress!

!gO! Spring

!gO! get your Easter Dress!

!gO! has out an Easter Dress as their newest group gift! I got the notice just today and couldn’t wait to go get the dress, especially when I saw the polka dots. Growing up, my favorite Easter Dress was a polka dot dress my mother made for me by hand, sewing it months in advance of the holiday with loving care. I wore that dress out even before I outgrew it, and this dress by !gO! brought back those fond memories.

To pick up the dress you’ll need to be a member of the !gO! group. It has a one-time join fee of 50L, but there are regular gifts to make it worth joining. And this pretty dress is worth the fee alone.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Lumae Catwa Lips

Ostara’s Alter

I also stopped by Ostara’s Alter. The event ends April 3rd, so if you want any of the 5L hunt items (there are eggs with gifts hidden around the sim) you’ll need to hurry. I picked up the 5L gift item from Lumae and discovered a lovely Catwa lips makeup set. I included a picture of the hud above so you can see the lip palette. You might remember that Aline blogged a cute dress from the event in her post [here].

Enjoy your weekend, Fabulous Readers!

On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

Color this hair to your hearts content and get it for free!

Checking out Sexy!

I was checking out the FabFree Group Gift Listing and saw the gift for Sexy Princess and thought it would be perfect to go with my new hair!

And while I was there…

While I was at Sexy Princess, I couldn’t help but notice the wall of gifts! I picked up this second sexy number that is a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift. The Fitmesh Fantatics group is free to join, so you can pick up this group free as well. You might remember that Kat blogged this dress in turquoise [here] so if you liked this dress and want to add it to your wardrobe in red, now is your chance!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Be Cheeky!

Lucky_001

Be Cheeky!

The Finders Keepers Hunt has turned out to be an amazing hunt with some real gems of gifts that the FabFree bloggers have shown off for all of you amazing readers! I noticed that one of my favorite stores, Vision, was on the list, and stopped by to hunt down their gift to see what it was. Pictured above is the free gift – a white waist pants set with a really cheeky top that tells you to “Go Luck Yourself.”

It made me think of Pru who recently blogged about taking your demon to the beach 😀 I’m always excited to see Pru’s posts because she invariably blogs something unique and cheeky that I think I could never pull off! But I think I managed to pull off this one from Vision! Hunt down the pot of gold, and you can be cheeky too! Just be sure to do it before the end of the day on March 24th, because that’s when the hunt ends!

The pants and top come separately and in several sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Lucky_002

As I mentioned in my post [here] there are various perks to being a member of the Vision VIP group. Your one-time fee of 250L gets you an in-store credit of 100L on the first of every month plus access to four lucky letter boards (they change out each month too).

When I picked up my in-store credit this month, my letter happened to be up on one of the lucky letter boards and I grabbed the Moly top! The top is in this lovely Salmon color, but includes a color change hud for the ruffles around the hem. You could make the ruffle white to match the waist pants. Either way, this top goes lovely with the free Finders Keepers waist pants!

Moly Shirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Taking time for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n.

Poolside_001

All this hunting for treasure has me WORN OUT! So I decided to head to a resort for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n. I noticed I wasn’t the only one who thinks hunts are both great and evil at the same time. Aline was mentioning it in her post where she sported some great Finders Keepers hunt gifts. For me, the worst part is all those boxes scattered all over the floor of my Second Life house as I try to unpack everything. Wowzer! At least I unpacked a couple of resort worthy items sure to make relaxing at the poolside worth hunting down my freebies!

A new shirt.

Hey don’t worry if pink’s not your style! This shirt from Get Jiggy! has you covered with an amazing color hud.

You’ll get:

  • 13 colors to choose from for the outside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the inside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the cuffs

and you can change those separately. The shirt only comes in standard sizes, but I had no problem fitting it to my Jake body by using the alphas. I also tried it on my Slink body and it fit that body just fine too! This Vintage Polo shirt is a free group gift with your free to join group at Get Jiggy!

New Pants too!

While you’re at Get Jiggy! be sure to hunt down the Glam or Grunge hunt gift. It will only cost you 1L, and you’ll be getting a great pair of cargo capris. Just like the shirt, these pants come with an outstanding selection of color with the color change hud.

  • 5 colors for the pants
  • 5 colors for the front pockets
  • 5 colors for the side pockets
  • 5 colors for the back pockets
  • 6 colors for the belt
  • 5 metal choices
