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.

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*

A Booty Call From WHC!

hoorenbeek biker boots 3_001

After years of hearing about “booty calls,” I finally get to make one! This one goes out all the freebie foragers reading Fab Free: The Hoorenbeek subscribo gifts have changed again and the items available are spectacular! Pictured above are the UNISEX gritty black Mesh Heritage boots, now available for FREE from Hoorenbeek. Using a system different from most subscribos, in order to obtain these great boots, you need to go and click to subscribe. Then, wait two weeks and go back to pick up your gifts. As you can see from the picture, these boots are worth the extra effort. They are black with realistic dirt stains, just like my boots in real life (except on Second Life you don’t need glue to apply the dirt – I like my real life clothes to look as realistic as I can possibly make them look). The gift contains 4 different variations of the Heritage boots: regular (with or without socks), tall and short. This is an impressive package for a free gift, and the boots themselves are very detailed and lifelike. If you are already in the Hoorenbeek subscribo, run to pick these boots up. If you aren’t, then now is the time to get your name in the system. Hoorenbeek gifts are almost always excellent.

I was excited to do The Biker Hunt and, in the process, I found some noteworthy boots. MayCreations’ gift for The Biker Hunt are the Mesh Hunter boots in grungy black, shown in the picture above. They feature finely textured black leather with silver accents, including thin studded decorative bands in the ankle area that give these boots a very distinctive look. I also love the sharply pointed toe. Although MayCreations doesn’t specifically mention them being Unisex, I imagine they would look fantastic on a female avy as well as a male one. The boots do have a resizer in them. Also, a great bonus to this gift is that it includes a slink male version for those who can use it. I am always snapping up slink items for when I can finally afford to add slink to my avy, so I find gifts like this especially exciting to pick up. The Biker Hunt is a 1L hunt that continues until July 20th, and the item you are looking for is a motorcycle headlamp.

If you haven’t had enough booty already, there’s one more store you should call on. The white leather boots shown in the picture are from Forsaken Falls, another hunt prize on The Biker Hunt. Their great pebbled-grain white leather texture looks intriguing and carries a black abstract design that I found hard to interpret. The markings on the Mesh Biker Boots seem to incorporate skulls and such, but they aren’t overly obvious. If this kind of style influences your clothing choices, then take a good look at the boots up close. They have a unique style to their texture that separates them from a lot of boots out there, and for a 1L hunt prize, they are definitely worth a good look. I was very pleased with them.

Finally, this week I want to highlight the photo prop I used in making this post. It was created by Mrs. B. Designs, who offers it as their prize in the Biker Hunt. The Easy Rider motorcycle is non-driveable, but looks great for photos and comes with a couple’s pose that I chose not to use this week simply because I was using the bike to display the boots. In the pictures this week, I tinted it slightly beige to simulate it being a bit dirty. If you collect photo props like I do, this is a very nice addition to your collection, I highly recommend it. Three different sets of fabulous boots in one week? Not bad for my first booty call, if I do say so myself! Until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Under the Stars

And so, we’re back to Monday, my FabFree Dears.  I hope y’all had a good weekend and are starting this week with a smile.

new_003

I’m smiling because I’m starting a bunch of new Hunts. One Hunt full of really cute prizes is the Living Like Japan Hunt. This ruffled crop top is the ‘Sweet McFlury’ from Holli Pocket. As soon as I saw it I remembered long summer evenings at the fair or some little street carnival. It’s casual but still pretty and flirty. Then I found the sporty pink sneakers for system feet from Selfie and I knew I had an outfit.

Well, most of an outfit.  Then Just Because put out their latest group gift. It was like they were reading my mind! This is the ‘Denim Lace Skirt’ in pink and this completes my outfit perfectly.  Just Because has loaded this group gift with everything you could need. There are the standard mesh sizes L-XXS, plus versions for SLink Body, Belleza ( V 0.02 and V3) and Maitreya!  Plus the HUD included let’s you change the lace to one of seventeen different colors. All that and the Just Because group is free to join!

The Living Like Japan Hunt runs until July 15th so don’t delay!

Oldies but Goodies

62915front
I was talking with a friend the other day about one of our favorite topics (freebies, of course), and I mentioned how Paradisis was one of my favorite places for free goodies and great deals.  I was surprised she didn’t know about this little gem.  Over at the main store there is a corner full of sweet little bags containing over 30 cute and sexy free outfits.  Everything from jeans to lingerie, including this long tee and great ripped jeans.  A few of the items even include Lola Appliers.

If you read my last post, I mentioned that I was going to head back to the Valyria sim to hunt again and pick up more prizes.  This lovely skin is one of the offerings from 7 Deadly Skins for the hunt.  I love the lovely sun kissed tone and the peppy pink lips!  If you haven’t snagged any gifts yet from this great little hunt, this is your last chance!  It only lasts until the end of the month.

62915back
Continuing on my theme of favorite freebies that not everyone knows about are these cute silver bangles from Real Evil Industries.  In fact, this creator has a whole pile of gorgeously made jewelry set out for free and free to group (free to join).

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely week!

Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

black walls

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Snapshot_004

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!
