The Shore from Here…

Pineapple_001

The shore is pretty from here, and I have stopped to check it out from the dock. Good thing I am all dressed for the part thanks to a few lucky gift finds and a lovely in-store gacha hair that I couldn’t pass up. I thought I’d check in with you Fabulous readers and share my finds with you!

Pineapples!

I love applier clothes and this cute top from Egoxentrikax stole my … pineapple with ITS pineapples! It’s a free group gift (the group is free to join) and you’ll get both system layers and an omega applier that works with most mesh bodies.

A touch of class.

Moondance Boutique has out a new group gift for the month of July. Just like last month, this gift is free and the group is free to join. It includes the necklace and the earrings shown in the picture, and just like last month you get a full color change hud with colors to change the texture of the metal, and both gems in the jewelry for lots of versatility!

Top it off!

I stopped by Wasabi Pills after seeing they had some new hairs out, but ended up navigating toward their in-store Gacha section instead. I came across the Bianca Gacha and really loved the hair style. There are two styles in the machine: style 1 (shown) which has only one side of the hair tucked behind one ear and Style 2 (not shown) which has both sides of the hair tucked behind your ears. For just 75L per spin, this is a chance to win some really pretty hair!

One Moment in Time

One Moment_001

It’s that one moment of magic when the moon is still out in the morning as the sun rises and both are out at the same time… The sky is a color that no painter can capture, but Lunaria almost captures the color on this free gift dress I found.

Annabel don’t cry for me…

I’m not sure if this free group gift dress by Lunaria called “Annabel” was meant to be a roleplay dress or not, but it sure would be perfect for one. If you’re not into roleplay, it’s beautiful for any other occasion as well, and it makes me think of moors and songs and poems by Edgar Allan Poe like “Annabel Lee.” The fabric is an amazing texture as far as the color… shimmering in different hues of blue with a sheer hem, and it comes in a variety of sizes for all your needs.

Sizes available:

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

If you love this dress, be happy! There was another free group gift out, as well as a Midnight Mania board, and three lucky letter boards too!

More magic.

As if this dress wasn’t enough to make my day, NSP Florals has out a magical gift right now in the form of this Pastoral Bliss Hair and Wreath. The hair has wisps around the face and a braid down the back. The hair and wreath are separate pieces, so you can wear the hair by itself, or pair the wreath with another hairstyle you already own if you like. You’ll only be getting the ginger color in the hair, but it is simply stunning, and I was happy to change out of my usual silver locks for the day.

NSP Florals has a one time join fee of 125L for their group, and you’ll need the group tag to pick up your gift, but the creator puts out a beautiful monthly gift. So if you join this month to get this gift, you’ll be set to get next month’s gift and all the gifts to come!

This is E. Vary Wrong Dirty Princess

Call Me Cami
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all been having an excellent week thus far. I know it’s been a minute since I had a blog post for you, so this one has several goodies I’m excited to share with you starting with this pretty face!

Recently E. Vary put out a set of FREE mesh head applier gifts for their group members. There is a gift for the Akeruka head, one for Lelutka heads, and this one Pru is wearing the E. Vary  Cami applier for Catwa heads. The E. Vary group is FREE to join at this time. With each of these gifts you’ll get a mesh head applier in each skin tone. The head applier hud has options for brows, and freckles. There is an additional hud that has several lip color options. Also included in each skin tone are the matching system skins with various options, and a set of tattoo layer makeup for classic system avatars. Mesh body appliers are available for purchase at the E. Vary store.

Dirty Princess This is Wrong
To go with this pretty new face, I picked up a few more group gifts to make a pretty new outfit! The mesh dress Pru has on is a current group gift at This is Wrong. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and the group gift version is in this deep purple color which I love. The peter pan collar and the skinny tie just add to the cute nerdy style of this dress. The This is Wrong group has a small one time join fee of 50 linden.

Dress Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya – Lara

In my opinion these boots from Dirty Princess could have been made to go with the dress. They are a current FREE group gift at Dirty Princess and I think they look amazing with the geometric print on the This is Wrong dress. There are two variations in the gift, one with silver buckles, and one with gold. The Dirty Princess group is FREE to join at this time also. If you are a Maitreya Lara body/foot wearer, you won’t want to miss this gift.

Shoe Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

New to Me!

Sunrise_001

New to me!

I found this great little shop called Alien Gizmo. It must have been around for a while because there was a little wall of group gifts with some awesome dresses and tops and outfits all free for the taking with your free Alien Gizmo group tag. I picked up the December group gift called Geri, but there were lots of recent group gifts that were just as nice! You’ll be trying on new things for a while if you’ve not been to this shop before.

Geri comes with a color change hud for several really cute styles to suit your tastes (I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this blog to show you the other colors), and I love the unique cut-out design of the top that makes this mini-dress uber sexy! It also comes in a variety of mesh sizes to fit all your mesh body needs!

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New Hair!

KoKoLoReS has out a new group gift for July! Hoorah! Just on schedule and as always, KoKoLoReS delivers, making their one-time join fee of 250L worth every penny. Like clockwork, the creator has put out a new group gift for the month. I’m sporting “Haylee” in the picture above, which is the group gift hair for July. You’ll get this un-rigged (meaning you can adjust it to fit your head) mesh hair with a hud of natural colors to fit your needs. You won’t want to miss this one.

If you haven’t already joined the group, why not start with this month! Then you’ll be ready to go for the next group gift when it comes out in August!

Happy shopping and gift hunting everyone!

Just Boating Around

Boats_001

Roleplayers are you ready for amazing props! I have to give props to the Gacha Guardians for some amazing gifts that will have your roleplay enhanced if you stop by to pick up their free gifts! Props for everyone! And free too!

By the water

I stopped by the Gacha Guardians event and joined the free Gimme Gacha group (you’ll need the tag to get the gifts) and ran all over picking up the 38 free gifts that are scattered around the event. I set out two of them (but really they equate to three) here to share with you!

Just boating around

Unkindness has out a free gift you won’t want to miss! Stop by their gacha machine with your Gimme Gacha tag on and pick up their free gift of these Forgotten Oasis Boats. These one piece, highly detailed, mesh boats are only 9 prim when rezzed out and are really beautiful and perfect for any modern, medieval, or fantasy setting. They are perfect for enhancing a roleplay setting or any landscape really. And who can pass up free!

The bears the thing.

Breaux Jr. gave out a gift and at first I thought it was the box! I rezzed their box and it was this one prim adorable little baby bear! How cute is that?! And only 1 prim! Ohmygosh! He would make a great prop for any landscape!

Then I realized he was actually the box for another free gift that is inside him! “Open” him up and you get the free torch that I have rezzed out as well. This gift is also courtesy free of the Gacha Guardians event.

Lots more to be had!

Be sure to pick up all 38 free gifts. You never know what treasures you’ll find!

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

le 4 Juillet

le 4 Juillet

Growing up, one of my favorite classes in high school was French, and I had an amazing French teacher who was French-born. We would celebrate Bastille Day on July 14th, and my French teacher was always great about recognizing both the 4th of July as well as Bastille day, and we would have celebrations for both as she would teach us the importance of both holidays and how they were similar and how they were different. I admired her a lot.

I thought of her today as I stopped on my gift rounds and put together my outfit. I thought of her as I thought about the importance of fighting for human rights, freedom, and things we believe in. She was an inspiration to me. So this post is for her… my le 4 Juillet!

Pick up your heels!

Graffitiwear put out two really terrific gifts for the month of July, so pick up your heels and get down to the store to pick them up! If you are already a subscriber member, you should have received the free July Subscriber gift, which is this great set of Strappy Blue heels. They come in a box that includes heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, as well as a pair that says “Map” that I’m not familiar with. If you’re not a subscriber, just slab that board and the heels will be delivered to you!

A new dress!

My new dress is the July group gift. Just wear your Graffitiwear group tag and pick up this July dress which is perfect for any July celebration.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New hair too!

I’ve been showing you some of the great gifts from the Hair Fair here and here, and I’m back again with another great style. I love this edgy look from KoKoLoReS called “Sniper.” I think it’s super sexy, and it’s not only free but it comes in a fatpack of colors too!

Again I went to the cam area and shopped from there, using the trick that I told you about in my post here to be able to select things from long distances. I picked up this style and was thrilled!

Happy cam shopping at the Hair Fair! There are so many wonderful gifts to be had!
