Misty Morning Walk

Misty Morning

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!   Walking for exercise must be a new, healthy trend for the Fab Free Bloggers, because just like Carson, Ripley and I headed out for another morning walk.  This time, we explored the Sea Foam sim.  With rose-pink flowers carpeting the ground, and mist rising off the water, the pup and I set out.  We paused to snap a quick photo before continuing our journey through this beautifully landscaped sim.

Nothing Gets Between Me and My Purple

When I was a new SL resident, a friend introduced me to The Free Dove, which is a wonderful shop packed full of free gifts ranging from shoes, to clothing to hair.  Every so often, Ripley and I travel back there to check out the new offerings.  I am so glad we visited this week because while we were there, my hound with a nose for fashion sniffed out a Fabulous Find to share with you.  The free, curve-hugging Justine dress I am sporting in my picture is a sleek, sleeveless number with a fun, asymmetrical hemline.   I love the way the fabric is slightly gathered with realistic folds.  A zipper on the left side of the skirt adds a whimsical touch.  The generous designer at Finale Couture also tucked the free, perfectly-coordinated Justine heels into the package, so I came away with a complete outfit!  Best of all, the frock and footwear were in my favorite color – purple!  (The box said “eggplant,” but to me, it’s a lovely shade of purple).  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to scoop up this lovely dress, but joining is free.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Justine dress in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Justine heels

Now It’s Time For a RL Walk…

I am truly enjoying the cooler mornings that we are experiencing now in the desert.  According to Siri, 78 degrees is “hot,” but to me, it’s a fabulous treat.  Ripley and I are off to explore in the early fall morning.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Finding a Pearl

Where Time is Never Planned

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I visited Soul2Soul Bay, he befriended this little pup with a nose for a good book.  I couldn’t resist posing near the cute fella and snapping a quick photo.  Isn’t he adorable?

Pearly White Lace

My cream colored halter top today is part of a free gift offered by SnB Fashion to members of the Teleport Hub group.  I love the delicate lace layered over a solid white, bustier-styled top.  The package also includes a lacey skirt, but since the pupster and I were wandering up and down the beach, I opted to slip on a pair of faded blue jeans instead of the dressier skirt.  The gift contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh body versions of the outfit, so it’s quite versatile indeed.  The Teleport Hub group has a 10L join fee, but group membership makes you eligible for a plethora of gifts scattered around the grid, so your linden dollars are well-spent.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Love Me Tender, Love Me Sweet

Blacklace
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  If you are in the market for something a little on the sexy side, I have news for you…

It’s all about Audrey

Through all of the craziness this past summer, I somehow missed that Blacklace had updated their group gift near the end of July, but luckily for me (and for anyone else who missed it!) – it’s still available!  This gift is available with a 99L group join fee if you are not already a member, and they do tend to switch out the lingerie gifts every couple of months.

What’s in the folder, you say?

Included are system layers and omega appliers for the bra, panties and stockings you see me wearing.

ENJOY!

He Loves To Hate

Snapshot_003

Friend or Foe?

My real life dog just loves to hate one particular cat on my block.  That darn cat was strutting around right outside the front window where he watched her, certainly teasing him on purpose but he thought she wanted to be friends.  Finally one day, someone had left the door open to bring some groceries in which made for the opportune moment for him to make his off-leash move.  He dashed out the door, scared the fur off the cat and chased her around the fence.

FOE!

Now… he just wanted to get to know each other, but this cat was not having it.  I ran out to bring him back, and heard “SWAT!  HISS” and then “YIPE YIPE YIPE!“.  He came running back home, unharmed but with his tail between his legs and a new perception on his feelings for her.  Even when I point the cat out now (who is still strutting her stuff at the window btw), he wants nothing to do with her!

Get on with it, Love!

Now, enough of my jibber jabber – let’s talk freebies!  I couldn’t help myself with the story, because as I sit here writing this blog entry… The cat is outside, and the dog – in the window.

The brown jersey knit dress you see me wearing in my photo today is a free group gift by COCO.  Compatible with Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, this casual treat is even more cute from the back as it offers a cut out wrapped design.  I have included the vendor ad below so that you can see it.

COCO is always free to join, offering a ton of gifts in the VIP section, including the gift Serena recently showed [HERE].

A Stationary Drive

Snapshot_002
Happy Monday FabFree! I meant to get this blog post up yesterday, but I was just having too much fun watching the leaves fall on my Sunday drive.  Actually, I am still trying to figure out how to work this car.  I did mention the other day that some things are so much better in Second Life for me, but driving is not one of them!  I had more of a Sunday sit than a drive, and while I couldn’t feel the wind through my hair at least my hat didn’t fly off!

Bundled Up In Denim

What inspired this outdoor excursion yesterday was the denim jacket you see me wearing.  It is shown as a dress in the Scandalize ad, but I quite liked it with a pair of pants from my inventory and some fall boots!  The big chunky belt is probably my favourite feature, but the big wide sleeve cuffs are cool too.  This Kaily Denim design is available as a free group gift at Scandalize with your 100L group join!  There are several gifts on the wall to pick up making this fee well worth it, don’t worry!

Sizes Included:

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

Soft Golds

Fall Colors_001

The weather has cooled down the last few nights where I live… cold winds ushered in by thunderstorms. It’s made me think that fall will perhaps be here sooner rather than later. But that’s okay. I’ve always enjoyed the autumn breezes and warm browns and oranges that mark the season. It’s not quite cold enough for sweaters yet, but it’s cool enough I’m wanting to start my fall wardrobe, so I picked up a gift that tickled my fancy for that!

Soft Golds

I stopped by Guilia Design and picked up the Third Life Group gift called “Cherry Gold”. I’m not too sure about the name as the gift includes these great black leather pants plus this gold tones snake skin top and a separate mesh belt, but I’m going with it because I really love the outfit!

Cherry Gold comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus quality alpha layers for system bodies (if you need it). Remember, the Third Life group is only 10L to join if you are not already in it, so this gift will only cost you 10L. And the Third Life Group gives you access to gifts in stores all over the grid, so it’s well worth joining!

Fall Colors_002

Change of Pace

I don’t usually show off collar gifts, as they are not my personal style… but I love the quality of clothing and items at Salt & Pepper and I think the creator turns out some truly beautiful gifts. I wanted to make sure and share this new gift that Salt & Pepper has out for group members, as it’s incredibly well made and really lovely.

The “Toy” Collar comes in two versions “His Toy” or “Her Toy” and both are fully customizable with a hud that allows you to change the color of both the leather and the metal. (I’ve included a picture of the advertisement below to show the options). It is also resizable making it unisex as well. You’ll need to click the menu to find the resize option. It is RLV enabled for those who are interested.

The Salt & Pepper Group does have a one-time join fee of 300L, however there are quite a few very nice past group gifts still out for you to enjoy, and the creator is generous about putting out new, quality group gifts as well, making the fee worth it in my opinion!

Early Morning Light

Desert Light
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Weekend! Ripley and I have truly been enjoying the arrival of cooler temperatures in the desert. For the past two days, we’ve ventured out for long morning walks. The bright sunshine washed everything in our path with a clear, brilliant light, yet the air was still tempered by the early hour.  After many months of sweltering triple digits, we are savoring the arrival of more fall-like weather.

It May Be Cooler in the Mornings…

but it is still very warm in the afternoon, so long pants are not really an option for me in RL yet.  I was very happy to stumble across this cute Aurola outfit in the Desire shop on the Marketplace!  With a knotted crop top and sporty drawstring-style shorts, this casual combination was ideal for an early morning jaunt with the pupster.  Although I opted for a midnight hue with white piping, Aurola includes a full fat-pack, which offers 18 colors for the top, and 15 for the shorts, so if black isn’t your favorite, you have many other options available.  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile top and shorts combo for only 5L!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you are enjoying some splendid, early autumn weather yourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

She’s a Little Runaway

Runaway_002

“No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head”

“Oh, she’s a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
All those things he couldn’t say
Ooh, she’s a little runaway”

I captured this picture and thought… now this is the outfit I would like to runaway in! And who knows, maybe you would like to runaway in it too! Of course it would be great for a date night or just casual wear, but if not… runaway, runaway!

Autumn Gift

It’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here! Paisley Daisy put out their autumn group gift to celebrate. The group join fee is just 50L and the creator puts out a monthly gift to make it worth joining. I love this sweet chocolate dress that is this month’s gift! It comes in several sizes to fit mesh bodies, including regular fitmesh sizes XS – XL, plus Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza sizes.

New Hair!

Like clockwork, KoKoLoReS has set out their monthly group gift, proving once again that their join fee is worth it. This month is the pretty gift hair called “Jin” which I am wearing in the picture above. It includes a hud of natural colors as well. It’s a flirty style and would work well for casual days and flirty nights, and it fit my catwa head without any adjusting.

Well I’m off! I still feel like running away for the day! Who knows what adventures I will get into… but I can’t wait to find out! Happy shopping and gift hunting!
