That Friday Feelin’

That Friday Feelin'

Hello there, Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  I’m popping in to share a free gift with you as well as a time sensitive special offer.  When I put the two together, a good friend of mine actually thought they were sold as a set.  I think they create just the free-spirited boho vibe I wanted to start off my weekend.  I hope you like the combination as much as I do!

First, that Hippie Vibe

My gray Anna Jeans with the colorful bell bottoms sit low on the hips, and hug your curves before gradually widening to a generous hemline.  I know I’m probably gonna date the real me, but when I was a child, bell bottoms were IN, and I just loved the swish swish they made as I walked.  I adore this vintage style!  Featuring rivets and a buttoned waistline, these faded jeans have that comfy, well-worn feel straight out of the package.  Best of all, they are a free gift from ALB Fashion.  To pick up a pair for yourself, simply activate your FabFree group tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Next the Lacy Perfection

To show off the low rise waist of my pants, I knew I wanted a cropped top, but I just couldn’t find one in my inventory that was the right hue.  Of course, this meant one thing………shopping!  As per my usual on Fridays, I checked out this week’s offerings for Fifty Linden Friday, and spotted the Pico Top in Sunny from A N E  Main Store, and I knew this was just what I was looking for!  With a light, airy texture perfect for my escape to summer, cute little side ties draping down, and a buttery hue that seemed to be made to go with my bell bottoms, I happily paid the 50L and teleported home to try it on.  Sometimes the color on the vendor picture is not quite a match for the actual hue of the item, so I crossed my fingers.  It was a perfect match!  Actually, the folder contains two versions of the Pico top, so you get a brown color as well as the sunshiney shade.   The shirt is made specifically for the Maitreya body, so if you have a different body type, it might not work for your avatar.  The only caveat is, this is a deal for Friday only, so if you like this top as much as I do, scurry on down to the shop before it’s too late!

Ripley has been worriedly eyeing my balancing act on these old timbers, so I’d better hop down before he goes into full blown rescue mode.  He is itching to go off and explore the rest of the Soul 2 Soul sim.  It’s so beautifully landscaped and we are both eager to check it out.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Delacruz Park

Delacruz Park
Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about bringing you posts not only about free and fabulously inexpensive items, but places you can go to have fun without spending your linden as well. Delacruz Park is a recent discovery of mine that I believe is one of Second Life’s many lesser-know but amazing locations. It’s a small but fully functioning amusement and adventure park. Most if not all of the rides and attractions are for sale, but you can experience them for free in this beautifully landscaped setting. You can even see the neon blue roller coaster in the background of the above photo! Also, I love that Delacruz Park is all decked out for the fall season.

Delacruz Park Ferris Wheel View
Delacruz Park is family friendly, however it would also be a fun spot for date night or an afternoon with friends. I already mentioned the roller coaster, this second photo was taken from high up in the working Ferris Wheel. If you look closely you can spot a few of the other attractions such as the Hot Air Balloon ride, the must-see mini Stone Hinge setup. I could continue to list the number of things to see and do at Delacruz park, however half the fun is discovering all this beautiful spot has to offer. Also, I’m sure I’d absentmindedly leave something out!

Along with this destination recommendation, Pru is wearing a couple of past group gifts that are still available. If you’re interested in her look, you can check the credits below!

Les Jolie Fleurs

Antiquing With My Pal

Hello Fabulouses!  While out looking for antiques, Ripley and I stumbled across a new-to-us shop called FAFA.  As I wandered through the store, drinking in all the vibrant hues and tribal prints, the pupster did what he does best……..he sniffed out a free gift.  All I had to do  was switch to my SL Frees and Offers group tag, tap the vendor, and I took home a sweet new tank top – all for zero linden dollars!

Il y a Des Fleurs

That’s about the extent of the French I still remember from high school, but the heading really seemed to fit this gift.  Featuring delicate blossoms and greenery scattered across a cream colored background, the Fleur Tank is *almost* long enough to double as a short dress.  With the right pair of leggings or tights, you could definitely pull off a dressier look, but I opted to don on a pair of beige pants for a more casual outfit.   Where I live in RL, it’s still plenty warm enough for tank tops (still in the triple digits here), and one of the best things in SL is you can wear whatever you please and still be comfy and cozy, so this top made a welcome addition to my wardrobe.  I bet it will to yours, as well.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, we still haven’t discovered just the right piece of furniture for the corner of the great room, so Rip and I are off to do some more antiquing.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! 🙂

I’m enjoying some quiet time by the lake this afternoon, but I wanted to pop in for a few moments to tell you about the adorable group gift that was just set out at S@BBiA.

The Sleeveless Blouse & Wrap Skirt-Short Pants come in one mesh size with an alpha layer. The back of the blouse fastens with a button and has a keyhole opening underneath. The wrap skirt-short is actually a “skort”… it looks like a skirt from the front and shorts from the back.

Both pieces can be worn separately.

Sleeveless Brouse&Wrap Skirt-Short Pants (Group Gift)

Enjoy!

On the Dock of the Bay

On the Dock of a Bay

Happy weekend (what’s left of it), fabulous readers! And happy Father’s Day (U.S.) to you dads out there!

As I was checking out some beautiful places in SL over the weekend, I happened to wander on to the Devin’s Eye sim. It’s a beautifully-decorated rural sim, and I highly recommend a visit. My buddy here is actually much friendlier than he looks, so don’t let him scare you away.

Oh! And I’ve got a comfy, casual look to share with you for YOUR summer sim-hopping! 😀

Comfy Jeans for Summer

Aleutia recently announced a change in their group gift policy: “Each week, Aleutia will take at least one of our older releases and place it out among the group gifts. When the week is up, that release will be retired from both the main store and marketplace forever.”

So… there are 2 takeaways from that statement:

  1. There will now be WEEKLY GROUP GIFTS! Woohoo!
  2. You’d better grab the gifts quickly each week before they disappear forever!

I’m sporting the first of these weekly gifts, The Zeta Jeans. They come in not one, not two, but FOURTEEN (14) different colors.

The “catch” — if you can call it that — is that they are only designed to fit Maitreya mesh bodies (you can certainly try them with different bodies to see if they’ll fit, though).

Remember: you only have 1 WEEK to grab this gift before a new gift is released and this one goes away forever. So don’t wait too long!

Be My BayBee

I wandered into new-to-me store Holly Mill last week when I was looking for a different store. This turned out to be a good thing because they have a really nice FREE gift set out!

The Baybee Crop Top comes in sizes for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass mesh bodies only. Five (5) different designs are included in the box.

The gift is absolutely free. Just click and buy for 0L. No group join is required. 🙂

Enjoy!

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Hi guys! I have a quickie for you today. Just a pretty little dress that will make you feel like a princess and a lovely necklace.

I feel pretty

I picked up this fun and flouncy dress at Shoenique. The flower on the front is removable and the white spot on the skirt isn’t really there, it’s just a little bit of light from my windlight setting. It is the April free group gift but it is still available and I don’t imagine that it will go away soon because there is a whole wall of past group gifts as well. Just join the Shoenique group for free and click away!

Dress Sizes:

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus, Isis
  • Slink hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • 5 standard sizes L-XXS

I also feel lucky

There are three free lucky boards at Chain, currently stocked with two necklaces and a really great dress that I had to have! The boards are open to everyone, no group join is required. I did eventually win the dress (YAY!) but before that I won and photographed this cute little look. Maybe I’ll show you the dress later, but right now look how fabulous this necklace is!

I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Moment of Peace

Peace

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I have family arriving from out of town tonight, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a budget friendly hunt find that I picked up for just one Linden dollar.  Since Stan had such good luck at the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt, I decided to give it a go myself, and came away with the Gloria outfit from Sweet E’s Designs.  With its floral skirt and coordinating short sleeve top, this outfit had me instantly ready for summery weather.  The shirt features a scoop-style neckline adorned with a narrow string tied in a bow.  The mini skirt, with its column of four buttons and four pockets, rides low on your hips and hugs your curves.  Since the outfit contains both classic and mesh avatar versions, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for you.  To pick up this complete outfit for yourself, teleport over to the store and search for the puzzle piece hidden in the store.  The hunt sign out front has a hint giver, which I found pretty handy.  Since the hunt concludes on June 3rd, you still have plenty of time left.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

After my peaceful moment at Butterfly Beach, it’s time to round up Ripley, and head off to the airport.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
