Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Avi-Glam Lucky Board Offer

Snapshot_003
Hello Fabulouses! If you happen to have a bit of free time this week, make sure you stop in at Avi-Glam and check out their offerings!  A friend of mine teleported me to the shop recently when there was a letter L on the lucky board (thanks again Grace!) and I was fortunate enough to win this beautiful dress.

A Rotation of Dresses

You’ll need to join the free Avi-Glam inworld group to partake in the lucky board offers as they are group only, so clear a space!  There are a few boards with eyes and the Prestige Dress that appears to rotate in prints to win.  I am not sure how many different ones there are, but I love this one called Stylish.  It comes in XXS-L mesh and includes a couple of alpha layers should you require them.

Be sure you also swing your cam around the corner of the boards, because that free group tag activation will also score you a wall full of free group gifts.

gO Mia, !gO Mia!

GoGG
Hello FabFree Readers! I was so excited when a group notice came through the !gO inworld group announcing it’s newly released Mia Tops & Shorts because they are right up my fashion alley.  In Second Life, my natural go to items are casual styles that look comfortable.

In My Comfort Zone

!gO went all out on the texturing on the Mia Top with bunches and crinkles and wrinkles all in the right spots – and the shorts are perfectly worn in with realistic looking fray.  You can purchase these tops and shorts in a few different colours instore at an affordable price…  Perhaps you still have a group credit on file from previous offers 🙂

Or…  Get it for next to nothing!

You can pick up the top in the colour shown on my avatar for free as a group gift.  This gift does have the store logo on the bottom hem, but I sure don’t mind.  I doubt you’ll find it takes away from the look either.  This group has a very reasonable join fee of just 50L.

while you are there, grab the one pair of shorts (#6 as I am wearing) at half price – just 70L for a limited time!

The Shore from Here…

Pineapple_001

The shore is pretty from here, and I have stopped to check it out from the dock. Good thing I am all dressed for the part thanks to a few lucky gift finds and a lovely in-store gacha hair that I couldn’t pass up. I thought I’d check in with you Fabulous readers and share my finds with you!

Pineapples!

I love applier clothes and this cute top from Egoxentrikax stole my … pineapple with ITS pineapples! It’s a free group gift (the group is free to join) and you’ll get both system layers and an omega applier that works with most mesh bodies.

A touch of class.

Moondance Boutique has out a new group gift for the month of July. Just like last month, this gift is free and the group is free to join. It includes the necklace and the earrings shown in the picture, and just like last month you get a full color change hud with colors to change the texture of the metal, and both gems in the jewelry for lots of versatility!

Top it off!

I stopped by Wasabi Pills after seeing they had some new hairs out, but ended up navigating toward their in-store Gacha section instead. I came across the Bianca Gacha and really loved the hair style. There are two styles in the machine: style 1 (shown) which has only one side of the hair tucked behind one ear and Style 2 (not shown) which has both sides of the hair tucked behind your ears. For just 75L per spin, this is a chance to win some really pretty hair!

Good morning Fabulouses, and happy July 4th to those of you celebrating.  I think I might sit on the deck this afternoon and have a beer, myself so I can celebrate with you.  Oh, who are we kidding?  I’ll use about any excuse to have beer on a hot day!

Don’t Get Up

Snapshot_007
This is exactly what my RL dog does when he doesn’t want me to get up. He’ll just lay across me, so I can’t easily move in hopes that I don’t bother.  Fortunately my RL dog is much smaller than my SL variety.

Previously on FabFree…

I have shown you a couple of group gifts that are available at Just Ordinary, but the gifts don’t stop there!

  1. Anything But Just Ordinary
  2. Pick Up!  I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

I quite like the Isabelle Dress as shown on my avatar as it’s perfect for an easy breezy casual kind of day and it gets bonus points for being free too.  You can actually pick up more than a handful of free group gifts when you join the free inworld group at Just Ordinary.

Isabelle’s Size Range:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XS-XL Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Creating Curb Appeal

Snapshot_006Hi there Fabulous Folks!  I am switching things up today and am showing you some décor items instead of clothing.  I came across a few cute things this weekend that I thought you all might like to hear about.  Perhaps you’ll find something you like to spruce up your home in Second Life!

Come On In!

The build you see in my photo is Ranger Rick’s Office which is part of The Hive’s Arcade Gacha offering at 50L per play.  To the side of the doorsteps you’ll find a couple of items made by The Ruddy Duck Co. (one of them a dollarbie!), and on the steps a group gift by JIAN and Zen Creations which are both free to join.

JIAN Kitty Shark Bed:

This adorable item is just 2 prims to rez and includes the sleeping kittens inside the bed.  Both kittens are texture change as well as the bed and as it is copy, you can rez out as many as you like. You can find this as a free group gift at JIAN with a free group join.

Zen Creations Cape Cod Candles:

The Cape Cod Candles are the latest group gift at Zen Creations.  This décor piece is 7 prims and is copy/mod so that you are able rez as many as you like and edit the colour and size to your liking.  The Zen Creations group is free to join.

The Ruddy Duck Company:

The Ruddy Duck Co. is a fairly new shop in Second Life and has some really nice outdoor décor items available in their marketplace store including a 1L item.  In my photos you’ll find the following…

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.
