Time for a Redeux

Purple Flowers

Time for a Redeux.

The Redeux event began April 14th (so if you go now you will probably miss the major laggy crowds) but it lasts until April 21st so there is still plenty of time to snap up the deals. Many booths are out featuring 30L and 35L deals as well as each booth offers a free gift (no group required!)

Picking flowers.

I was picking up my free gifts at the Redeux event, and I happened to pick the box at the Sexy Princess booth and brought home the purple flowered romper you see in the picture above. (TIP: I noticed that some of the boxes don’t deliver when you click them, but if you right click and select “give me” or “touch” they will deliver that way.) This spring romper seemed perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, and it offered some favorite body sizes as well as standard fitmesh sizes with a quality alpha.

Sizes in the box:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

To the Easter Parade

Virtue

We’re late, we’re late….

… I tell her as I grab her hand and pull her out the door. She’s a bit annoyed at me as she forgot to grab her bonnet, but you know how “I’ll be ready in two minutes” turns into twenty…. So down the street we go, headed for the Easter Parade.

Virtuous Sunday

Today we welcome another designer to the FabFree family. Virtue  has joined us and has a FREE gift to to the members that join the Virtue group which was announced [HERE] and can be viewed in the FabFree Group Gift Listing as well. Virtue group members can also pick up a 200L Gift Card at the store. She spent her gift card on the Angela Dress, which wold normally cost 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! And I picked out the Joseph Suit in beige for a spring feel, also normally 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! What a great Easter present. The pose,  Beach Stroll by Bounce This Poses, can be found on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Don’t be like another rabbit I know and be late…. Happy Easter!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/14/2017 – No Cabide

No Cabide Storefront

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
Gifts @No Cabide
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.”  Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Searching

Lots and Lots of Stars…

I’m out late at night searching…. not for stars but for Easter eggs on The Great Easter Egg Hunt. This is a large hunt with 625 gifts and 339 locations to visit. Sponsored by Caspertech, you can pick up your hunt HUD [HERE] and is nifty enough to let you know how many eggs are at each location and includes hints! And the best thing about this hunt is that all the gifts are FREE! Just the little bit I was out hunting, I found the Too Young To Dye Easter Tee from >>K<< and the Graf Cargo Shorts at Angel DELUXE. The cargo shorts come in Fitmesh and standard sizes to fit just about anyone and also includes a belt (not shown).

I See You…

Madpea Productions usually has a FREE Friday-Only gift for members, but I barely have time to get a post up before the gift is gone. I loved this one so much that I’m putting it up in hopes some people want it. The Telescope from Madpea has three poses included for your stargazing pleasure. The Madpea group is FREE to join.

I’m going to hunt all night if I have to….

An Easter Hunt.

Zuri is hosting an Easter Hunt through the month of April. There are 3 eggs to find and they are just 10L each (or they are free if you are a member of the Zuri Jewelry group). One egg contains the beautiful necklace you see me wearing. One contains my earrings, and one contains my bracelet (upper picture). For just 30L you can have the entire set. It’s a steal for your Easter basket!

Blowing in the wind.

I think there was a breeze in the air at the Garden of Absentia where I took my picture… or maybe it was just this beautiful free to all gift that I picked up from Exile hair. Right now if you hurry over to Exile, there is a gift out for both guys and gals. This is “Gina” for the gals. It is a free gift and comes in a full fatpack of colors. Hurry, you won’t want to miss this beautiful style!

Come Sail Away

How to enjoy the holiday weekend…

There are many ways to relax this extended weekend. but for me it will be on the top of a boat, taking in the sun and the waves…. in Second Life, at least…. I do intend to do some serious rl relaxing this weekend after a few necessary chores are completed.

Online Shopping Addict…

On my shopping spree online I found some great deals on the Marketplace.  I found a few dollarbies that look and feel great for lounging about. The Bro Collection Casual Cotton Tee is a 1L find on the marketplace from Adham DeCuir. It comes with a texture HUD to change the tee to three different statements  (Now I can’t get this song out of my head). Another 1L find is the White Bermuda Cargo Shorts by Aquarius. For my feet I picked up the Sandy Flip Flops at DROPS that Kat first showed [HERE]. I’m still wearing the Brandon Specs from Thalia Heckroth, a group gift and free to members and just 5L to join.

Time to feel the breeze in my hair and the surf on my face….

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Never ending shopping spree…

Life as a blogger always has you on the lookout for your next item to show and the next location to photograph at. I’m always on the go, store to store, sim to sim, and rarely stop to take a break.  But as I passed this mobile coffee stand, I thought I’d stop and look to see what tasty menu items looked appealing…

Be a Spaz…

Today I’m wearing one of the newest group gifts from Spazio. The A28 Pants and Jacket with Shirt is a semi casual fun look and great to shop in. The Hypnose-Spazio group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE to members. I also found the Brandon Specs, a free group gift at Thalia Heckroth. These sunglasses come with a color changing HUD to change out the rims and the frames. This group does have a 5L joining fee, but well worth the 5L.

I’m off to my next location shoot. I’m thinking maybe a cruise….

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – CATWA HAIR Aimee

Head –  Lelutka – Aria

Skin – Essences – Imani

Dress – (BYRNE) Hollywood Lace Dress – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join
