Outbreak

Nothing but steam…

Ok, not the ideal place for my radiator to spring a leak, but I’m have to make due.  I saw a house a mile or so back. I could go there and ask for help, but it did look old and abandoned. maybe I should walk up ahead and made find some help.

Maybe I should have stayed with the car. The farther I walk the foggier it gets. Today I’m wearing the Wyatt Open Shirt a FREE group gift at Ashbury. The group is also FREE to join. I’m still wearing the Brooklyn Pants (with a different texture) from TentatioN  I modeled yesterday [HERE] along with the Barcelona Shoes by A&D Clothing.

The fog is starting to thin a bit. I think I see someone up ahead. They seem to be wearing a fedora and a striped sweater. I made it to my destination, this has to be Elm Street!

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

Brooklyn Bridge is Falling Down

Brooklyn Bridge

Crazy Dayz…

Every year, around this time, I’m a bit stressed. It’s crunch time at work… I’m always tired and a grumpy cat. Every little thing gets under my skin. It’s times like this I tend to wander off by myself because, trust me, I’m my own best company. But, I know in just a few short weeks, the stress will be gone and I can take a nice long (and well deserved) break.

Cross that bridge when you come to it…

Today, I found the Brooklyn Outfit at TentatioN. This is a for the SLF&O group members. Not a member? The group is FREE to join! This outfit comes with a texture changing HUD for both the shirt and the pants for several different looks to suit your needs. On my feet I have the Barcelona Shoes from A&D Clothing. This also includes a texture HUD for different laces and soles.

Countdown… T-4 weeks…

You Spin Me Right Round

Snapshot_002A Whimsical Spin To Save The Day

Hi there Fabulouses!  Just home from work, and am taking a few minutes to blog/unwind from my day.  After a day like today, a whimsical spin in the garden sounds like a perfect way to let go of the days events, alas…  it’s pouring rain, so here I am…  in SL…  trying out my luck with the sun here 🙂  It’s always sunny in SL (unless you don’t want it to  be!).  This fun spinning pose is just one of several Fabulously Free in SL group gifts available at West End.  It doesn’t actually spin…  it’s a static pose made for catching the moment as I have, in a snapshot!  The FabFree group is always free to join.

I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Tropical_002

“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch”

Okay, okay…

Okay, so I don’t really have any coconuts, but I found this great tiki disco house called The Revival Disco where I could dance in my new free group gift dress from EvelineInTheBox! I love this particular dress. The colors are tropical and gorgeous and it has a sexy side slit all the way down the right side of the dress.

Sizes you’ll be getting: Standard sizes XXS – L + a Fitted Mesh and a quality alpha for system bodies.

EvelineInTheBox is a great place to pick up roleplay, fantasy, and modern clothes for low prices and regularly puts out a free group gift. Be sure to drop by and get your free Nandi dress before it disappears!

FabFree Designer Friday (On A Tuesday… A Little Late): West End

We’re Late!

Good evening FabFree Readers!  It’s time for FabFree Designer Friday!  Actually, it’s been time for FabFree Designer Friday for a few days now lol.  Prudence Rexroth usually does these features on Friday but it appears she is having some technical difficulties, so you are stuck with me this time and it’s a little late (my apologies!!)!  I hope I do as good of a job as she usually does!

Take a trip to the West End

Today I am choosing to featuring West End, which was established in 2016 by Beloved Ruby.  This modern, easy to move around in, two level shop offers beautifully designed men’s and women’s shapes on the first floor and a hefty selection of  poses on the upper level.  If you are having trouble shaping yourself with your new bento head, be sure to stop by West End and check out Beloved Ruby’s selection as she has some really nice – ready to put on, no muss – no fuss shapes for bento!

Free, Free, Free!

There are a ton of group gifts to take advantage of while you are visiting the shop.  As you can see from the photo below, there are currently five group gifts set to the free Fabulously Free in SL inworld group and seven group gifts set to the West End inworld group.  You’ll find these group gifts just to the left as you enter through the main doors right next to the “Events Ads”.

Right as you walk in the store, straight ahead you’ll find a very sweet couples pose as a free group gift for the Second U Magazine group which is free to join.  If you are a blogger and like what you see instore, you can even apply via the Blogotex system at the desk!

As you can see, it’s a lovely shop, so head down there – I bet you’ll find something you like!

King (and Queen) of the Jungle

Snapshot_0033

Queen Bee…

In my SL existence I feel like I’m the king of my jungle…. My 512 x 512 jungle….  it’s all mine, none the less. But the one thing I have learned is that I may be the king, but it’s the queen who rules the jungle. If she isn’t happy, no one is happy. My advice to all you guys out there… keep the queen happy!

Royal garb…

Today, with her help, we are showing off gifts from two groups. Hypnose has as a gift for their members, the matching King and Queen Shirts for him and her. There will be no doubt who is the royalty in these shirts. The group is free to join, however the gift requires you to pay 1L and get refunded 1L.

Since you asked…

Our couples pose is Since by Reel Poses.  The group gift is free to members but there is a 30L joining fee. This is the perfect pose to show off her best feature….  Dang! remember what I said about keeping the queen happy? I think I just messed up…

Do You Believe In Fate?

Snapshot_002
Hello there Fabulouses!  I believe it was purely fate that these two amazing royal blue group gifts by GOS Boutique and Blanco came out at the same time.  These two items colour match so perfectly, it would seem as though they were planned to be released together, but I’m sure…  it must just be a coincidence!

Fate only takes you so far…

Once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen, so go grab these gifts!

Your first stop is to Blanco to pick up the beautiful halter Stasia Dress that is a free group gift.  Blanco is a small shop right next to Scandalize and the gift is very easily found as soon as you enter.   I am displaying this dress in a gorgeous shade of blue, however it does come with a texture change HUD that allows for 10 solid colours and 3 prints.  This group is free to join.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya

Fate pulls you in different directions

It’s a good thing that it does, because you’ll need to take a teleport to GOS Boutique to grab the latest group gift called Karrueche in the colour of Snorkel Blue. These shoes come in XXS-L sizes as well as fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh feet.  The group is 250L to join

Transparency

Transparency_001

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Transparency_002

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!
