A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Sailor Prudence

Sailor PruIt’s Cos-play time! One thing I never tire of, even as an adult, is playing dress-up. Maybe that’s why I enjoy blogging so much. I get to play dress up regularly. Recently I came across this super cute Sailor Moon inspired outfit from Milk Tea. The shorts and top set is the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt gift at Milk Tea, and you can hunt it down and claim it for just one linden. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in system layers and includes omega appliers, a Lolas applier, a Belleza applier, and a “Combo” applier. Needless to say, it’s got quite a few options! To add to this playful outfit I found a cute little compact on the Marketplace. This crescent moon shaped compact is by Ity and is FREE on the Marketplace. Next, the moment I saw the FREE gift from ZOZ at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I had to have it for this outfit! The nail palate gift from ZOZ comes with a pretty array of slick blue polishes. Now all I need is a good convention to go to, and I’ll be set!

Have Fun, here are the details!

Gypsy Summer

Summer Lovin'

Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad it’s Friday, or as my friend likes to say Fri-Yay! I’m really just going to make this post as short and sweet as possible. I picked up this so so so cute and sexy top for FREE at American Bazaar just by joining the AB group and wearing my group tag. Not to worry the group is FREE to join. There’s also a cool yellow jacket out for the men. This top is fully mesh and it’s every bit as cute on as it looks. This gift is the July Group Gift at AB, so hopefully today is not the last day to get it, but it could be gone at Midnight tonight. Don’t wait on this one! Next, I picked up this dazzling necklace from a group-only Lucky Letter board at Tantalum. Like the AB group, the Tantalum group is FREE to join. I was really impressed when I put the necklace on and realized it’s equipped with a touch-menu that gives you a ton of customization options. There’s a re-sizer for fitting, color change options for the gems and the metal bits, also you can adjust the glow and the full bright settings to your taste. I turned the glow and brightness off completely.  There are several Lucky Letter boards with lots of jewelry and accessories at Tantalum, as well as a group gift or two.

He Shoots, He Scores!

72715bball5b_001

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week, I decided to get more exercise, change some of my poor eating habits, and end up with a healthier version of me! Yeah…had you going there a minute, didn’t I? LOL! Seriously, my favorite find this week is a very good looking basketball uniform emblazoned with the words “New York” across the front. The hunt prize from the Boom Boom Pow Hunt, The Mensline Mesh Basketball Outfit from KAD Designs is great athletic wear even, if you aren’t a basketball fan. The jersey alone would fit well in an urban street wear outfit, but KAD Designs gives you much more than that! The hunt prize includes the entire uniform right down to the sneakers and socks. In you have no need of active wear, consider this: The outfit has some seriously fun role play potential in the right situations. The Boom Boom Pow hunt ends on the 31st of July, and this gift will set you back 1L. Hurry and grab it, it is a very nice gift.

72815Basketball Blk1

Staying with the basketball theme, earlier today I saw that IAF had set out a goodie bag for us guys with multiple freebies in it. Among the four items in the bag is this basketball jersey with the number “01” on it and with the name “Hustle” on the back. This happens to be perfect for me since “Hustle” happens to be my nickname around the office. (I sold Love’s stapler to Pru, then wrapped up Pru’s stapler as a gift to Love. I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky kids!) The Jersey is black with silverish gray numbers and accents and would look as great out on the street as it would on a basketball court. One last note, in this very generous FREE gift bag IAF also included some chinos, a sweater, and a wool jacket/shirt combo!

Lastly, my hair is a great FREE group gift from Amacci! Truly one of the best places for men’s hair on the grid, I was very pleased to hear they had put a male hair out recently and hurried over. The current FREE group gift is called “Leon” and comes in cinnamon. It is a nice length for guy hair; I call it medium length in my inventory and is a must pick up, since free hair for guys is such a tough find. I don’t know how long this will be out. So, like most of the end of the month items, it is best to run and grab it before it vanishes like the playoff dreams of a basketball team from a certain city that I will not specify.

That’s what I have for you this week. Whether you want to look good hanging out on the corner talking smack to your friends, playing a quick pick up game of basketball, or have an interesting idea for a role play in mind, these items should come in quite handy. Until next week my friends, take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Aloha Bettie

Aloha

Hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely feeling the summer heat! In need of some fun in the sun, I made a trip to the Aloha Fair and was not disappointed. Not only is the Aloha Fair nestled in a beautiful tropical location, there are tons of dollarbie Aloha Fair gifts to be had from the participating merchants. I have to say I’m more than just a little impressed with the generosity of the Aloha Fair gift from Brii Underground.

The Brii Underground Aloha Fair gift is this complete outfit. For just 1 linden, you get the mesh romper, matching shoes, hair flower, sunglasses, and a tattoo (not shown). The mesh romper comes in standard sizing, and the tattoo (not pictured) comes in regular system layers, as well as a Wowmeh applier, and a Slink applier.

Next I picked up this too adorable tote from Knockers. Also an Aloha Fair gift, this dollarbie tote comes in 2 versions, one with magazines showing and one without. Also, each version comes with a right or left hold for versatility. Sometimes the accessories really make the outfit. Not to mention, how cute are these flamingos?!

A Moment of Zen

727_001

 

Good Monday everyone!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and are refreshed and ready for a brand new week. I’m starting off the week by staying in my new favorite pajamas all day long!  These soft, silky mesh pants are a bit of an older group gift from Red Sand, but still available (along with a slew of other great gifts for men and women).  The package contains the pants in 5 sizes and two colors, along with matching tops.

I could not help but pair the pants with this cute scooped tee from Foxy.   You can find it on the discount wall, packaged with a pair of adorable shorts for only $10.  I love the dark shading and the fact it comes will appliers!

 

727_003
Last week I showed off some group gifts from Dead Apples, this week I made the trip again and picked up this soft, sweet makeup kit for only $10 L.  It is called Cinema Makeup, and gives your eyelids a tint and your cheeks a glow.

When I need a moment of zen, Black Kite is my favorite sim to hide and just relax.  (Well, and there are gachas!) It is beautiful sim, and provided the backdrops for these pictures.

Delicious Pants – Red Sand 5000 member group gift – FREE

Boyo Black Top – Foxy – $10 L
