Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope your work week is off to a fantastic start.  I wanted to pop in with a quick post sharing a cute and colorful cropped top that I picked up for free.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Rainbow of Colors

My sleeveless top features a high neckline and a hem that falls just above the midsection, which makes it just perfect for summer.  The bold stripes of color are a bright and cheerful reminder that June is Pride Month, a time to promote acceptance of others.  According to bustle.com, the month of June is a time to “envision a future where everyone is respected and accepted.”  I’m happy to show my support for the community by wearing the Ami Crop Top Pride Flag Print shirt, which the generous designer is offering as a gift over at Stories & Co.  The free package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • VTech

Ripley and I are off to do some housework.   Well, actually, I think Ripley is planning to laze around and watch me vacuum up all of the dog hair he has scattered around, but at least I will have company while I do so ;).  There is a reason why German Shepherds are sometimes referred to as “German Shedders.” Until next time, happy shopping!

Make Me A Sammich

Snapshot_003Hey there Fabulouses! I hope you enjoyed your weekend 🙂  It’s been fff f f f fffreeezing here over the past couple of days and there is nothing better for it than a warm snuggly sweater and comfort food, so I am following suit here in Second Life as well!

Fishy Strawberry is where I found my red turtleneck.  It actually comes in a set of two labelled Christmas Turtlenecks as a freebie, and while the other white tree/gift printed sweater is better suited for the holidays,  I think the red one I am showing off today could be worn any old cold day.  The mesh Moto Jeggings are also by Fishy Strawberry and are available for free instore.  I have blogged these before when they were a gift for The Chapter Four’s Anniversary [HERE], but if you missed them previously – you can snag them now!

This picnic basket is a free gift at :Poche and comes with a rezzable and hold version.  When you touch the basket it gives you a steaming animated sandwich.

I should also mention the Distressed Lace Table I’m sat upon because it is not only adorable and shabby chic, but a free group gift that you can pick up after you join the free Scarlet Creative inworld group.

Wayward & Lazy

Snapshot_004 Hello Fabulouses! I have put together a cozy outdoor display to show you some free and inexpensive Second Life decorative items and furnishings that are currently available via the Wayward Hunt and the Tag Gacha Event.

I started off with the Trompe Loeil Shotgun Shack that was at the previous round of The Arcade playing at 25L per play.  If you didn’t happen to snag one of these when the event was on, you can play it at the Trompe Loeil Mainstore now.   I then added several pieces of the ISON Tag Gacha Fortune Set such as the curtains in the background, the wooden chests, wooden chair, rugs, pillows and lantern.  This machine is 50L per play.

You can find the Tree Swing by Pixel Mode, which I have placed on my porch (I’m such a rebel) as a free Wayward Hunt prize.  This swing offers a menu full of single animated poses and an adjust option which is really nice if your avatar is not the standard size.  The Salvaged Wood Welcome Sign behind me on the shack wall can be found at Frogstar after you locate that hidden Wayward Hunt icon.

Cheeky Pea is where you need to visit if you’d like to pick up the Rodeo Chime which is available in three colour options as a free Wayward Hunt Prize and the Geode Mobile displayed beside the Rodeo Chimes is at Fancy Décor (also a free WH prize!).

The Toro Racer Bicycle which comes complete with a posing animation is a free group gift for joining the Wayard Events group, and they not only want you to have this gift, but they want you to take pictures of it and submit them for display on their website too.  You can find this in the past notices of the group.

Last but not least, I wanted to mention that the striped Sprite T-Shirt that I am wearing is a Wayward Hunt prize at Moran which comes in a pack of three colours (blue, black and red).

Spring Green

Spring Green Final

Spring green sounds so cliche but I don’t care, over the years green has become one of my favorite colors, and it does remind me of spring! This cute top by Vivi feels especially spring-like with the faint floral pattern and the lovely shade of pale green. The top comes in yellow as well, and the set is a current FREE gift available at Fab Free Headquarters! These tops also have the added detail of some little buttons at the lower back, which I think is sweet and a little sexy. The tops can be worn on system layers, and include Omega Appliers, WowMeh, Lena, Lolas, and Slink appliers.

Spring is in the air at Nail Me! also, the April group gift is out. This FREE mani/pedi set (for Slink hands/nails) includes several pretty pastel options with a delicate dotted pattern. There is also an Omega applier included in the gift. My photo does not do the polish justice, so I included a copy of the vendor photo below. The Nail Me! group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss out on these. There are also several past group gifts still available, now’s your chance to get them all!

Fantastic Finds at Frogstar

Good evening, my dears. I have a super fast one for you tonight because this sale is only going on until FEB. 8!!

I finally broke down and bought a new home here in SL and I’m all about décor right now.  So I was thrilled when Frogstar put a ton of great home goods ( and jewelry and shoes and nails and and and ) in a ‘retirement’ sale. Not Frogstar retiring , thankfully, but some items to make room for new things!

frogstar_002

First is this cute Chalkboard Door. I propped it up by my front door as a welcome sign. The board has ten different looks to choose from. But if that’s not enough, Frogstar has included blank chalkboards textures so you can create your own messages and pictures!

Sharing the front porch with my new chalkboard is Crys Secret Garden’s Planter gift for FabFree. This lovely little planter full of greenery and a butterfly is available at our own FabFree Headquarters for… you guessed it… free!

frogstar_004

This is the Torcello End table. I love the ‘distressed paint’ look in real life and I was tickled to find such a cute versatile end table for my SL home. The table comes in eight different colors so one is sure to be perfect for your décor. On the wall is the ‘My Little Raven’ 3d wall art. He comes with three different color changes.  Lastly is the ‘Plaster Garden Lantern’ in yellow. The Lantern is not on sale but it’s still a very reasonable 75L. It is completely resizable so you could use it indoors or out.

I’ve only shown a few of the great home goods on sale but there are also many other items on sale such as jewelry, shoes and nails! Remember, this special “retirement” sale only lasts till Feb 8!!!

A Little This A Little That

FAFFHQ Full

Hello Fab Free’rs, I know I’ve been scarce this week, but things are settling down and I’ve got some awesome stuff to show you!

First, the mesh dress Pru has on is a current gift at Fab Free Headquarters from DressMe Designs. I love the hounds-tooth skirt, it gives this outfit a very classy look, yet still casual and comfortable. It would be perfect for work or looking awesome while out shopping and running errands.  As with all the gifts at FFHQ, this one is absolutely FREE, just stop by and pick it up!

Next, the cute star garland behind Pru is a current gacha prize from Frogstar at The Play Room. These cute garlands are just $25 lindens per play, and they come in various colors with either hearts or stars. They are super cute just hanging on the wall, and they make great back grounds for photos!

Lastly, I picked up these really unique lanterns and decorative trunks at Aisling. They are some recently added freebies at the Aisling main store. No need to join a group, just pick them up for FREE at Aisling. The lanterns come in sliver, black, and gold, and the trunk is available in the two tones shown. I think these make great props for photos, not to mention they are great decorative pieces.

MoDanna’s Lazy Sunday with Frogstar

Lazy Sunday

One of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday is bargain shopping! Okay, I admit, bargain shopping is one of my favorite things to do any day! Still, Sundays in SL do offer a unique opportunity to pick up some great deals at several of the grid’s most popular shops. The event is called “Lazy Sunday” and for the duration of the day designers offer one or more items for just $75 lindens or less.

This Sunday a few items on the list caught my eye. First, this cute cropped sweater from MoDanna. MoDanna has quickly become one of my personal favorite places to shop. This sweater is fully mesh and can be obtained in a variety of colors, each just $75 lindens today only.

Also on the Lazy Sunday circuit, I picked up this adorable post board from Frogstar. The board has a cute winter theme and is perfect to go with any winter decor. At just $75 lindens, I had to have it. The beautiful textures and the details really make the piece. You will not be disappointed.

While out shopping and enjoying the day, I also came across a FREE Group Gift hairstyle from Tukinowaguma. You may have seen it before, but it was new to me, and so cute on that I had to show it here! The style is called Azumi, and the group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
