Ring My Bell…. Bottoms

Snapshot_003
Good evening Fabulous Readers!  Tomorrow it’s back to the old grind again, but for now, I can enjoy the last couple hours of my long weekend off with some peace, quiet… and fabulous free stuff!  The family has dispersed, the house is quiet, chocolate wrappers are all over the place, and my pants are feeling tight -.-.

The Fabulous Free Stuff

BlackRose has a really nice April group gift set out for their inworld group members (free to join!!) that includes the Olive Bell Pants & Tied Shirt as shown on my avatar.  Whatever body type you are in, whether it’s mesh or system, I’m sure there is a size included for you as the folder is packed with different sizes (even leg lengths for the pants), and alpha layers too just in case.  This set fits my Maitreya Lara Mesh Body like a glove, and I imagine the other fits are just as well made.

Here’s  hoping tomorrow does not feel like Monday on Tuesday!

Satin Stunner

Snapshot_007
Hello Fab Folks! Do you have a special night ahead that requires a stunning gown on a budget?  Even if you don’t have an event penciled in your datebook, you never know what might arise and should be prepared just in case you need to dress in a flash!

How Does FREE Sound?

I found this lovely Strapless Gown by London Core at The Free Dove.  Its sleek design may be simple, but the beautiful blue (you know I love blue!!) satin texturing and added silver embellishments really do complete this gown.  In the folder, you’ll find XS-XL mesh sizes along with an alpha layer, should you require it.  You’ll find this gown near the back of The Free Dove in the formal attire section, priced at 0L – as is everything in the shop!

Enjoy your day!

Time for a Redeux

Purple Flowers

Time for a Redeux.

The Redeux event began April 14th (so if you go now you will probably miss the major laggy crowds) but it lasts until April 21st so there is still plenty of time to snap up the deals. Many booths are out featuring 30L and 35L deals as well as each booth offers a free gift (no group required!)

Picking flowers.

I was picking up my free gifts at the Redeux event, and I happened to pick the box at the Sexy Princess booth and brought home the purple flowered romper you see in the picture above. (TIP: I noticed that some of the boxes don’t deliver when you click them, but if you right click and select “give me” or “touch” they will deliver that way.) This spring romper seemed perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, and it offered some favorite body sizes as well as standard fitmesh sizes with a quality alpha.

Sizes in the box:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

A Spring Day at the Shore

Spring Day at the Shore

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are enjoying our weekend get away to Maison de l’amitie!  We’ve been spending our days lazing on the beach, watching sailboats zigzag across the harbor, while seagulls circle overhead.  I could definitely get used to this!

I Like Vintage…..a Lot!

My worn and comfy vintage jeans capris today are a free gift for Third Life group members from the Red Room.  Although joining the Third Life group will set you back 10L, there are multiple gifts around the grid from a variety of designers for lucky group members, so it’s a worthwhile investment.  With a soft, faded denim that hugs every curve, rolled cuffs and a belted waistline, these pants are perfect for a casual day at the beach.  In addition to the gray-blue denim version, the capris also come with a texture change HUD for the fabric and belt, offering a range of possible combinations.  The gentle hue and frayed areas of the jeans complemented my white lace-trimmed Ivy cami from Pretty Please.  With a budget-friendly price tag of only 65L, this cute, feminine top is sure to become a summer time favorite.  I couldn’t resist scooping up the cami in several other pastel shades as well.  Together, these two vintage finds created the perfect outfit for a lovely spring day on the beach with my pal.

Sizes and Compatibility:

Capris:  Freya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Maitreya, and Isis

Top:  Shirt and Undershirt layer for classic avatars, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega

There Goes the E.B.!

As the Easter Bunny completed his last minute deliveries, he paused and waved, twitching his cute little nose in our direction.  I couldn’t resist pointing him out to Ripley.  This adorable pose is perfect for alerting my pal to the E.B.’s presence, as well as for featuring the Bento hands that are part of my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 50L at the Reve Obscura Marketplace store, you’ll get the pose as well as an adorable mesh dog (in case you don’t have an ever-present canine companion like I do).  I love the way “Spring Day” reflects that special relationship between a girl and her BFF!

To the Easter Parade

Virtue

We’re late, we’re late….

… I tell her as I grab her hand and pull her out the door. She’s a bit annoyed at me as she forgot to grab her bonnet, but you know how “I’ll be ready in two minutes” turns into twenty…. So down the street we go, headed for the Easter Parade.

Virtuous Sunday

Today we welcome another designer to the FabFree family. Virtue  has joined us and has a FREE gift to to the members that join the Virtue group which was announced [HERE] and can be viewed in the FabFree Group Gift Listing as well. Virtue group members can also pick up a 200L Gift Card at the store. She spent her gift card on the Angela Dress, which wold normally cost 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! And I picked out the Joseph Suit in beige for a spring feel, also normally 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! What a great Easter present. The pose,  Beach Stroll by Bounce This Poses, can be found on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Don’t be like another rabbit I know and be late…. Happy Easter!

Bunny Hop

bunny5_001ff

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! 😮

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! 😀

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

A Touch of Macabre

Back in Black_001

A touch of macabre.

Believe it or not, I was visiting a funeral parlor. I had stopped at Port Babbage again, and I was interested in the pottery in the window of a shop and had gone inside before I realized quite where I was. The somber furnishings and the casket for sale behind the screen quickly gave the location away. But still, I was intrigued. Perhaps it is the fact that I was raised on shows like The Munsters and The Addams Family.

Luckily…

… I was properly dressed for the occasion, thanks to the April group gift from Lisan Store. I had picked up this gift, just prior to going out. It’s a real beauty and the package had included the dress in both red or black, for an equally Gothic feel no matter which color you choose. I love the chained waist and the rose decorated bosom, which adds a bit of flair to this dress, yet somehow manages not to be frilly. As a side note, the dress only comes in Maitreya and Slink sizes for wear.

You will need the Lisan Store group tag to pick up this dress. It will set you back the small fee of 55L, but you’ll not only have access to this beautiful group gift, but also a about 6 other past group gifts that are still set out for you to enjoy. All of them are quality and lovely and make the join fee well worth it.

Leaving It All Behind

Leave It All Behind

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  After the hectic week I’ve had in RL, it’s time for a get away in SL.  I packed all the essentials (yes, Ripley, even your goodies!), and we loaded up the car with just a few pieces of luggage.  The small one on the left is packed to the brim with Ripley snacks, which made for a very happy pup, indeed.  We filled ‘er up, and headed over to Maison de l’amitie for the holiday weekend.

Fabulous and Free

My free, strapless mini is the latest gift from Satus Inc. for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Alisa Aviator dress hugs all your curves and ends with a slightly flared skirt just above mid-thigh length.  I like the soft sheen of the leather, and the contrast of the texture used on the sides of the bodice.  To add Alisa to your inventory for free, simply activate your Fab Free tag, teleport over to Satus Inc., then click the display.

What’s Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Aurora

Fifty Lindens for a Short Time

My loosely braided, sideswept hairstyle is available today at Wasabi Pills for only 50L as part of Fifty Linden Friday.  Aurora includes the special HUD loaded with 6 textures with roots and non-roots versions for each, plus black hair.  It includes side wisps on the left, the perfect length to frame your face.  If you’d like to add Aurora to your inventory for the extra low FLF price, be sure to pop on over to Wasabi Pills before the promo ends with the arrival of Saturday morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Until next time, happy shopping!

An Easter Hunt.

Zuri is hosting an Easter Hunt through the month of April. There are 3 eggs to find and they are just 10L each (or they are free if you are a member of the Zuri Jewelry group). One egg contains the beautiful necklace you see me wearing. One contains my earrings, and one contains my bracelet (upper picture). For just 30L you can have the entire set. It’s a steal for your Easter basket!

Blowing in the wind.

I think there was a breeze in the air at the Garden of Absentia where I took my picture… or maybe it was just this beautiful free to all gift that I picked up from Exile hair. Right now if you hurry over to Exile, there is a gift out for both guys and gals. This is “Gina” for the gals. It is a free gift and comes in a full fatpack of colors. Hurry, you won’t want to miss this beautiful style!
