Tranquil Lavender

Snapshot_003
In Pru’s post [HERE], it would seem she was conjuring up her “inner fierceness”, while today –  I was seeking just the opposite in my search of silence, and tranquility.  I think I have found that sense of repose in my visit to The Summer Trace Sim.  While I  tiptoed through the warm  powdery sand, my new cotton frock blew freely in the salty sea air as the cooling ocean waves lapped gently at my feet.  I managed to collect a few fancy shells on the shore, and tucked them into my pocket. No idea what I will do with them… they were just pretty :).  If this isn’t serenity…  I don’t know what is.

The Cotton Frock

I was glad to have found this darling Edi Dress in Lavender by Belle Epoque as a free gift at The Vintage Fair as it was perfect for my Second Life outing today!  You can find this right at Belle Epoque’s display, priced at 0L with no need to join the group.  This dress is specifically designed for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, however it may work with others too.  Give it a try – it’s free afterall!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.  Of course I tried to sneak his….  His sweater is always the softest warmest option.  It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch had a whole fatpack of their Agnetha Winter Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on a lucky letter “L”.   Included are eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I found these fabulous Vintage Jeans at Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.  This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again :).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Her Blahness

Snapshot_004Hello FabFree Readers!  As much as I love red.. and even green on occasion, I am getting a little tired of wearing red and green, and green and red!  I was really happy to find a couple of free gifts that were still holiday themed, but in different colours.  Today… I’m in black, gold and red!

Starting with my boots…

These very well made winter boots by Fri.day are red, black white and gold and are free (priced at 0L) under the giant Christmas Tree at The Arcade.  They are compatible with my Maitreya Lara body (I’m sure they’ll work with whatever you are wearing!), and include an alpha layer for those on the system body too.

My Nutcracker Pants!

I picked up these awesome Nutcracker Pants by Sn@tch for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  These are compatible with system bodies and include an OMEGA applier.  A texture change HUD is included for several different colours, but I went with coal, because it showed the gold nutcracker design down the sides of the legs best. As Kathryn mentioned in a previous post…  if you are trying to stuff your pants into a pair of boots, appliers are really the way to go!
Tres Blah December 2016 Group Gift

Her Blahness

If you like my sweatshirt, you should head on over to Tres Blah and slap on your “Her Blahness” tag above your head to pick up the Olsen Winter Sweatshirt as a free group gift in five different fun prints!  Arrows are my jam, but as you can see from the Tres Blah vendor ad to the left, the other prints are super cute too!

Sizes included:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique

This group will set you  back 100L, but there are several other group gifts to pick up like these [HERE] and [HERE], making it well worth the join fee!

See Your !Soul

Snapshot_006
Hi there Fabulouses! It’s been a while since I have visited the !Soul shop inworld, so I took a little trip there recently and found that they have an entire room filled with free group gifts that has just been adding up over the years! Many of these gifts have been previously blogged here on FabFree, such as this post [HERE], [HERE] and this post [HERE].

The Mesh Mini Dress (vest not included) you see me wearing today is their latest group gift that you can snag with a free group join.  This dress comes in classic mesh sizes, fitmesh, Maitreya, Slink & Belleza specific sizes and also includes a texture change HUD with 12 different colours.  This dress is adorable on it’s own or with a vest/jacket 🙂

Ain’t Nobody Gonna Steal My Honey!

Snapshot_004It’s a good thing Gizza put out this sneaky peeky camoflauge hunting set out as a free group gift because I had a little investigating to do this evening.  Someone’s been sneaking my honey for weeks!  Of course when I got there and began my investigation, it was clear instantly that there was nothing but Booger Bear fluff and tiny paw prints.  I knew it had to be those rascally little fuzzbutts…  Now to figure out who they belong to….  CALLLEEEEE

You can pick this this one piece (shorts/shirt/jacket) full “Hunter” outfit by Gizza as a free group gift after you have activated your free Gizza inworld group tag.  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh body specific sizes.  There is also a matching men’s outfit available as a free gift if you feel you need to call for back up on your hunting expedition.

As previously mentioned on FabFree, Gizza has an expansive group gift area at the landing point filled with goodies for girls and guys.  If you happen to know any new residents or come in contact with any, this is a good place for them to visit!  These are high quality, well made items and 100% free 🙂

Here are a couple more examples of gifts available at Gizza:

Always and Forever

Snapshot_006Hi there Fabulous Readers! With the start of a new month comes many new group gifts to hop around and collect!

Stories & Co. by Flowey is just one of the very generous designers that puts out monthly group gifts to their inworld VIPs and they have just put out August’s treat!  This month’s gift by Stories & Co. by Flowey is the Ash Shorts in Mermaid you see me wearing today.  These shorts are available for Maitreya and Slink Physique & Hourglass.  The group itself is 100L to join, but when you join you can pick up this month’s gift as well as three previous gifts which I have shown here on the blog [HERE], [HERE], and [HERE], so as you can see 100L is a steal!

I had a few spare lindens kicking around so I picked up this cute top at Stories & Co. by Flowey too.  It’s a good thing to support the designers with purchases where you pick up gifts when and if you can, plus…  it was so cute and went great with these shorts.

Have a great day!

Soak Up The Sun

Snapshot_002Greetings Fabulous Readers!  I know usually it is the outfit that is my free or under 75L feature in my posts but today – It’s my hair and shoes!

You can find this super sweet short summer hairstyle called Mao in a blondes pack by Elua at Kustom 9 as a free SLB13 gift (in the cake at Elua’s display).  If you happen to wear reds, you can find the red pack as a free gift at Collabor88.  If browns are more your thing, you can find the brown pack as a free gift at The Mens Dept.

I know these Fri.day Polly Sandals are a little hard to see under my dress in the photo above, so I have included their vendor ad below, but these flat sandals for Slink/Maitreya are available as a free SLB13 gift at Kustom 9 too in a wheat shade that will match with so many of your summer outfits!
fri.day - Polly.Sandals for Kustom9 June!
ps. If you are digging my dress today, it’s not free… but if you feel like doing a little shopping – you can find the Aphorism Nicole Maxi Dress at this round of Collabor88 at a very affordable price 🙂

White Jasmine

Snapshot_004Hey there FabFree! I am so excited for today – June 1st, because The Women Only Hunt begins! This hunt runs until June 18th and all of the prizes are free.  You can pick up the teleport hud for the hunt at The Flair For Events Office or join their group and pick it up in the notices.  *Note:  I didn’t need the hud to pick up the hunt prize.

Today I am showing off the free Women Only Hunt prize that you can pick up at Petite Mort  after locating the hidden coconut hunt icon.  The White Jasmine Dress is so cute and flowy, I couldn’t wait to put on some sandals and go play in the sun!

Midnight Sordid Affair

Snapshot_002
Hello again Fabulouses! I am back today to share news of more free goodness 🙂

The beautiful floral kimono that I am wearing tonight is a free subscribe gift at I<3F.  If you are already subscribed and didn’t receive it, simply check the history for #1.  If you are not a current subscriber, you can subscribe and check the history for #1.  It’s free and doesn’t take up any group space.  It comes in Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and mesh sizing.  It also includes a texture change hud that allows for four different equally as beautiful floral textures to choose from :).

My long Sordid Affair hairstyle is available in the group midnight mania board at MOON.  This group is 100L to join and is well worth the fee for all of the gifts, lucky boards and midnight mania boards that you can take advantage of.  Sordid Affair comes with ALL the colour huds, so you’ll find your shade!

I have blogged these Fri.day Reverie foot Wraps previously when they were featured at an event, but I saw today in the Fifty Linden Friday notice that the Reverie Wraps in Pewter are available for 50L today only!  I ran right over and picked these ones up too.  They are so cute with bows at the back that I wish I fatpacked!  I suppose I still could.
