A Vintage Stroll

Vintage_001

It’s not cold everywhere.

There are still parts of this world that have warm weather… and I decided to take a warmer weather stroll. I was missing flowers and sunshine amidst all the snow. I found a garden sim with roses, vintage bikes and vases, and took a walk in my brand new January gift from BYRNE. You’ll definitely want to pick this one up. The group is free to join and the gift is free too. You’ll get the jacket and the skirt (two separate pieces) and quality alphas to go with them.

Sizes Included:

  • The Jacket: standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • The Skirt: Fitmesh XS – XL, as well as a Maitreya fit

A finishing touch.

Chop Zuey has generously set out a gift just for FabFree group members. Since the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join, this gift is free as well, and it matched my new dress from BYRNE just perfectly. So I stopped by Chop Zuey to pick up the Love Knot Set. It includes the beautiful heart choker necklace shown above as well as a pair of matching earrings that are hidden in my hair. These are easily resizable to fit any avatar. You’ll find this gift where the other Chop Zuey gifts are.

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

Fishing For Silver

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulous Readers! Last week on the FabFree Blog [HERE], I mentioned that Sn@tch had put out a new 7 Seas Fishing Prize and I did show you one of the 20 piece Fish For This:  New Years Grab Bag, but hadn’t had a chance to go through all of the items yet.

Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold

As I am digging my way through the boxes and bags, it seems that most items are gold or silver which is really nice because they will mix and match with a ton of different colours from my inventory!  There are casual items, and formal items and even some accessories and jewelry!

Today I am wearing The Delilah Wrap Top and Changes Crystal Earrings which were both free in the set.  I am wearing the beautiful satin wrap top with a leather skirt from my inventory by Stories & Co. by Flowey, however I think this blouse would look really nice with a pair of black pants too.

How To Fish For This

Again, If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch.  Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too!  No bait is required.

I’m still digging – stay tuned to see more!

A Day in Gray

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  If you happen to have a space 60L kicking around, I know just the place to spend it!

Don’t forget your purse…

You will need a little bit of cash for today’s find (60L to be exact), but to be fair…  Sometimes group fees cost more than this little dress does!  [Satus Inc.] has just released their new Anya Collar Mini Dress in four beautiful colours, and for a limited time, they are just 60L per colour.  I am wearing the gray today, but you will also find black, blue and pink.  I think the sheer midriff, slit skirt and studded collar add so much sexy to what would normally be a very basic design.  Another feature that I can appreciate is the realistic wrinkled texturing.

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown – the latest group gift from .miss chelsea. – would be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store – no group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! 🙂

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

Extra Extra Read All About It

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree! I’m just taking the time to enjoy my last day off before I have to go back to work tomorrow…  at least I am trying to.  I just want to read through the entertainment section of The Second Life Times, and my furball is not co-operating.  He’d rather jump around and force me into a game of stick fetch.   While I am here, I thought I would tell you about a really cute dollarbie that I came across on the Marketplace!  Actually, you can pick it up as a free group gift inworld too, if you happen to have the group space.  The group is free to join.

For Just 1 Little Linden…

You can pick up the Flowers Embroidered Dress in both white and black in the Insomnia Store marketplace store, or you can head to the mainstore inworld and join their free group to obtain it as a free group gift.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh w/ alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There are more dollarbies available in the marketplace store, and more group gifts available for pick-up inworld!  Have a great day, I’m off to play fetch!

Nefarious Plans

ZigZag 1

Even villains have day jobs.

Neckwarmer Man blew my cover… again. So the earmuffs are gone. But thankfully KoKoLoRes Hair has out a new group gift for January, which means I have a new hairdo. Just call me “Spike.” That old moniker just wasn’t me. And I think I like the name Dillon too… after the hair… as my other Alias. Got to have a lot of aliases when your in the business of crime. Crime and coffee that is. And I’ll be serving up your coffee at the local coffee and tea bar here at Tanya’s.

The shirt off the rack.

They say you have to blend in. Look normal. Especially if you’re running the day shift at a coffee bar when Neckwarmer man is hot on your trail. So I stopped by MOoh! and picked up the latest FabFree Gift. I didn’t even have to steal it, as it was already FREE. Can you believe that? They just leave this stuff lying around. It even came in four colors, fitmesh, and sizes for Maitreya and Slink bodies.

On the lookout…

I know that guy will never give up… wait… did that customer just take an extra creamer for his coffee? See! There are worse villains than me! At least I serve the coffee hot while I plot my nefarious plans. Okay, semi-hot. I don’t want the customers getting spoiled.

Far Better Things Ahead

Far Better Things Ahead
Happy New Year, Fabulouses!  After reading about Love and Carson’s New Year’s Eve mis-adventures {HERE}, {HERE}, and {HERE}, I gained a new appreciation for the quiet evening I spent in the company of my canine pal, Ripley.   No last minute trip to the dog park with his pals to share a few Ripley snacks, no lampshade on his head, just a peaceful stroll through The Winter Forest sim, contemplating the big changes we went through in 2016, and anticipating better days ahead in 2017.

Ringing in the New With Style

As I was considering what to wear on my New Year’s Eve, I was happy to see a message from Astrid about the gorgeous and free Christmas Dress 2016 from The Beautiful Ones.  She said it is a lovely gown, and boy, was she right on the money.  Thank you so much, Astrid, for the tip!  Ripley and I scrambled over to TBO, activated the group tag, and quickly scooped up the formal frock.  With a join fee of only 25L, you will have access to promos and gifts, as well as mania boards, and a group-only lucky chair upstairs.  Featuring glistening gold accents, and a long, flared skirt, this gorgeous, sleeveless gown is perfect for an evening of dancing.  Although the title “Christmas Dress” might make you think it is only suitable for holiday wear, the gift includes a color-change HUD with 6 options, making it very versatile indeed.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Hourglass, Physique, Belleza, Maitreya,  and TMP
  • Mesh for Classic Avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Mesh
  • Color Change HUD with red, white, green, black, teal, and purple options

A Little Bling

It must have been my lucky day, because after the IM from Astrid, my hound with a nose for bargains led me over to Mandala Jewelry’s Marketplace store.  I was thrilled to notice the many S-A-L-E items.  I couldn’t help but dally over the 12 days of savings, 50% off, and 70% off specials.  Finally settling on antique gold, Tukemono double hoop earrings for only 37L (50% off… woot!  woot!) , I checked out, and crossed my fingers, hoping for a perfect match to the trim and bow on my beautiful dress.  Ta-da!  The shimmering baubles wonderfully accessorized my outfit, providing a touch of simple elegance.

Get it, Girl

My Day Just Kept Getting Better

While I was drooling over pondering the many bargains at Mandala Jewelry’s sale, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing a gift from Sentinus Design.  Gold-accented heels with an eye-popping 8 texture options.  Was I interested in the Casandra high heel shoes?  You bet!  Best of all, the group is completely free to join.  In the pose for my main photo, my shoes are completely concealed by the hemline of my gown, so I’ve included the close up photo to showcase the design of my newest footwear.  With softly polished leather, and gleaming golden chain accents, these beauties glammed up my feet in style.  I selected the teal version to complement my dress, but you also have 7 other texture options to choose from.  In addition to the Casandra heels, group members can also pick up 18 (no, that is not a typo) other free gifts.  Time for another happy dance!

If Only…

So, my loyal canine companion and I shared a wonderful New Year’s Eve together.  The only down side of the whole story is he didn’t bring me breakfast in bed the next morning.  Just deep brown, liquid chocolate eyes, and a cold, wet nose, demanding a walk in the frosty, pre-dawn air.  Maybe Love does have the right idea after all…  I wonder how hard it would be to train an old dog to whip up breakfast as a new trick?  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

He Was Late AGAIN!

Snapshot_002

Soaking up the sun

After a long hot shower, my damp hair still wrapped up in a towel, I plopped myself down on my bed comforter trying to let the morning sun cheer me up, still struggling to figure out how to deal with the events of the previous dud of an evening.  You know…  the one where I spent all day making myself all up for a New Years Eve party that he said he wanted to go to, and then waited hours for him to show up late (AGAIN), drunk and “with a lampshade on his head”.  If there is one thing you can always count on with him, it’s a funny story.  It’s not quite funny yet, but I am sure it will be one day.

My Fuzzy Pink Attire

My fuzzy pink robe, slippers and head wrap were just what I needed this morning, and thank goodness I was able to pick them up as a free group gift at MOoH! This group is 100L to join, but after you join you can pick up this group gift, hit the raffle board and grab the 150L instore credit that you can pick up every month!

Yup, he actually said that…

With my bedroom door slightly ajar, it was open just enough to stare icy daggers through him down the narrow hall and through to the kitchen where he was happily fixing breakfast, crashing, banging and whistling a song that was completely unrecognizable.   Words from the previous evening rolled around in my head…  I think probably the most memorable argument was his “the beer was cold, just sayin!” to my “I shaved above the knee,  just sayin!”. 

Forgiven

He somehow managed to penetrate the icy force field that had built up overnight at the bedroom door with a tray of breakfast just for me and puppydog eyes…  <sighs> Looks like he’s forgiven…  again…
