Beach Therapy

Beach Therapy

I can rest anywhere…

I was told to take it easy but wasn’t told to stay home. So, I’m hitting the beach to relax and enjoy the view. From here, I can watch the waves, the boats the birds and the occasional bunny that passes by. 🙂 Today, I’m wearing more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. As I passed the Emerald Couture cart, the Men’s Teal Tank Top and the  Turtles Beach Trunks  caught my eye.  At just 10L each I couldn’t pass them up.  Another Cart Sale find is the Sky Blue Summer Slip Ons from Roped Passions. I’m all about inexpensive footwear and there are several styles to choose from for just 10L each.

Tiar a new one…

I’m also wearing the latest Male FabFree group gift from Tiar. David’s Necklace is FREE to our FabFree members. All you have to do to pick up this gift is,you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s free to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

Lounging in Style…

Getting comfy can sometimes be a chore in itself. I was lucky enough to come across the Cushioned Poolside Lounger and the Poolside Umbrella for just 10L each at the EC Designs cart at The Wash. The lounger comes with many poses to find that comfy spot you’ve been seeking. Soaking up the sun never felt so good.

On Down the Line

Ocho Tango

All my bags are packed and reedy to go…

… in my dreams. I’d love to be able to take a trip, but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. At least in Second Life, I can go to whatever destination a care to choose with a simple click of the mouse. Today I’m taking a train ride to wherever the tracks lead me. I had a layover at the Ocho Tango Club and found by joining the group I could get this Men’s Mesh Dress Outfit for FREE. The outfit includes a shirt and pants in classic XS-XL sizes, a hat and shoes. There are several FREE gifts on the table for members, both male and female. Be sure to check them all out.

My train is boarding, I need to scoot on down the rails. Later!

Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!

Prince and the Pea

Price and the Pea

Waited on Hand and Foot….

You’d think that would be great, someone talking care of your every need. Adjusting the pillows, pulling down the covers because you are hot, pulling them up because you are cold, having all your meals served to you in bed…  It is pretty awesome…. for a while, then it gets old and you want to do things for yourself. I’m happy to say that all my help has vanished and I’m glad to be doing things on my own.

Laid Up in Style…

You can still be stylish while convalescing.  I stopped by House of Ruby and found the Ruby Boxers for just 1L as part of the Masters of Style Hunt. These applier boxers come in both Slink and Omega appliers. The netted look to the boxers are great for lounging, recovering or sharing some naughty time with that someone special. The Masters of Style Hunt runs from June 17th through July 31st.

This pretty pair of pastel blue heels with the ties at  the ankles are a FREE group gift by Empire available to all “Friendship: The Hangout” group members.  The shoes only come in the color shown, however there is a HUD that allows you to change the color of the sole, and the little metal accents.

Now about those unicorns I mentioned. This cute little tire and pillows seat is the FREE June group gift at Chez Moi. The gift has 10 sit/lay poses.

Down the rabbit hole…

This week I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole, attended a wild tea party and smoked a hookah with a caterpillar. I thought I’d show you some items I found before I get summoned for a round of croquet. I found three gifts at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS  that I’d like to share with you. First off, I found a gift for FitMesh Fanatics to celebrate 15K members.  The Male Shirt is comes in either v-neck or u-neck. The Fitmesh Fanatics group is FREE to join.

Off with his … Clogs?

The other two gifts come bundled in one box and for just 1L. Both the Male Shorts and the Green Male Clogs can be found in the Summer Hunt gift located somewhere in AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS. Any time I can find clogs to wear, I do just to annoy her. She says it is not fashionable to wear them, but I think they are comfy.

Ok, I’m out for a bit. Until next time…

Carson

Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Pretty Posies

Sweet Floral
Oh Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very girly today, princess-like even thanks to this pretty floral dress and matching shoes from NSP Florals. The gifts at NSP Florals have always been generous, so I was not at all surprised to see that the shoes came with this beautiful pink dress. I can’t help but imagine a romantic date on a warm summer evening dancing and laughing in this dress. I also love the added detail of the straps on the bodice.  The NSP Florals group has a one time join fee of 125 lindens. In addition to this June group gift, there are group only lucky letters, and you can purchase a few of the previous group gifts for just 5 lindens each.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/16/2017 – Marquesse Pret a Porter

MPP Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and this week I’m happy to share with you a shop that has both male and female clothing designs. This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Marquesse Pret a Porter. You’ll notice right away as you enter the shop that the store offers clothing for the ladies as well as gentlemen. There’s a wide range of clothing available at Marquesse Pret a Porter. I saw shoes along with casual and formal style clothing.

The circulation desk and wall of information are both in the same location, right as you enter the store. I love it when everything is easy to find and can be seen right away! Most of the shopping is on the main floor, however there are a few items upstairs as well.
MPP Gifts
The circulation desk area is also where you’ll find the Marquesse Pret a Porter group gifts, as well as several group gifts for other affiliated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL. First, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. You’ll find there are a few available group gifts located in a row just above the “Gift” marquee on the desk. The additional gifts require other specific group tags. For the exclusive Fab Free group gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the red and green present on the desk. You may recall seeing this gift in Astrid’s post “Waiting is Over-rated…” As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. Oh! Also, before I forget, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group members also have group exclusive Midnight Madness boards and Lucky Chairs.
MPP MM Lucky Chairs
Located at the back of the store, Marquesse Pret a Porter group members can slap one or both Midnight Madness boards, and win prizes from the 5 Lucky Chairs. The MM Boards have one male gift and one female, while the Lucky Chairs have rotating gifts. Happy Shopping guys and gals!

Dark Magick

Dark Magic

I’m stirring up a little magic in my roleplay today, courtesy of SLB 14! I visited the event and was thrilled to see that roleplayers were not left out of the free treats and gifts to be picked up.

Generosity…

I was amazed at the generosity of [Tia], the creator of the Grimoire Table you see in my photo above. It is the free gift you can buy for 0L if you visit the [Tia] booth at SLB 14. The table is all decked out with tons of detail, including lit candles and a rotating magical aura on the book on top. For all this detail it weighs in at a mere 5 prim. This is a must add to your inventory for roleplay furniture.

And my dress!

My dress is a free gift also. If you go to The White Armory, and head inside the main building, you will see that it also houses BlueMoon Enterprises, where you can pick up their latest free gift (the group is free to join), this Saoise Dress in Aqua. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a quality alpha so that you’ll be able to fit it to standard or mesh bodies either one. It’s perfect for some magical roleplay!
