!gO! Get your Easter Dress!

!gO! Spring

!gO! get your Easter Dress!

!gO! has out an Easter Dress as their newest group gift! I got the notice just today and couldn’t wait to go get the dress, especially when I saw the polka dots. Growing up, my favorite Easter Dress was a polka dot dress my mother made for me by hand, sewing it months in advance of the holiday with loving care. I wore that dress out even before I outgrew it, and this dress by !gO! brought back those fond memories.

To pick up the dress you’ll need to be a member of the !gO! group. It has a one-time join fee of 50L, but there are regular gifts to make it worth joining. And this pretty dress is worth the fee alone.

Available Dress Sizes:

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

Lumae Catwa Lips

Ostara’s Alter

I also stopped by Ostara’s Alter. The event ends April 3rd, so if you want any of the 5L hunt items (there are eggs with gifts hidden around the sim) you’ll need to hurry. I picked up the 5L gift item from Lumae and discovered a lovely Catwa lips makeup set. I included a picture of the hud above so you can see the lip palette. You might remember that Aline blogged a cute dress from the event in her post [here].

Enjoy your weekend, Fabulous Readers!

Serial Chiller

Serial Chiller
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I sincerely hope everyone is having a good week so far. For me, today is a total laundry day. Not so lazy but definitely a day for something comfy and casual to wear while folding clothes and lugging the laundry basket around. The newest group gift at gO! is perfect for a day like this. For a little fun I also picked up the most recent group gift at Caboodle, and lasts but never least the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid. I hope you like my cute laundry day look! Keep reading for all the info on how to get these fantastic group gifts.

Serial Chiller

I simply could not resist this group gift outfit from gO!. I love the details in the over-sized slashed and slouchy shirt, as well as the comfy looking capri style pants. I also like the phrase “Serial Chiller”, it’s not a play-on-words that I often hear. Let’s just say it suits me! The gift comes in this singe group exclusive color with several mesh sizes. You will need to join the gO! in world group, which has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Meow Kitty Ears Meow

I think I’ve mentioned before that very early in my Second Life I was Neko, and while I no longer don ears and a tail on a regular basis I’m always a sucker for cute kitty ears. Caboodle’s new group gift just so happens to be this pair of adorable kitty ears complete with wraps and bows. The ears have a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of the inside fur, outside fur, bows, and wraps. The Caboodle group has a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

Feline Eyes

As luck would have it the Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Liquid is a set of beautiful sunset inspired feline eyes. They are a FREE exclusive group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The group is always FREE to join. These eyes come in dark, medium, and light color versions. Pru is wearing the darkest of the 3 options. The gift includes a set of mesh eyes for each color, and appliers. To get your copy of these pretty peepers, war your Fab Free group tag and head over to Liquid.

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!

Come gO! With Me

Sweet Bohemian
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way through the week. I hope you’re all doing well. I’m happy to report that I’m quite busy but otherwise fairly fantastic all things considered. I’m also really missing some of our Fab Free family lately. I don’t know what I’d do with my Second Life with out each of you, and my fellow bloggers here at Fab Free. So thanks again and always for being here. Mush and gush aside, I do have some lovely gifts to share with you!

Slip Dress to Impress

Something about this sweet slip dress from gO! must have me feeling sentimental today! It is quite darling on. I love the way it seems billowy when you move while wearing it. This cute dress is the most recent group gift at gO!. You will need to join the gO! group, and wear the group tag to get your FREE gift. Currently the gO! group has a one time join fee of just 50 lindens. The group gift Tamara dress comes in several fitted mesh sizes, and standard mesh with an alpha layer also included.

Mesh Sizes Included: One Standard Mesh size, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya

Amulet

The proverbial icing on the cake for this look would have to be this FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I had a somewhat similar necklace as a teenager, so I was twice excited about this gift when I saw it. The “Gossamer Jewellery” group is FREE to join, so don’t hesitate to pick up this beautiful FREE gift. The Maxi Gossamer gift Tibetan OM Amulet comes in several colors, as well as a long version and a short version. It can also be easily sized with the built in resize scripts. Just touch the necklace to get the menu and options.

Before Dawn

Snapshot_002
Why. Is. Morning. So. Early?

As you can see…  Even on the best of days I am very much not a morning person.   Most mornings, it is pure luck if I can manage to pour a cup of coffee and return the cream to the fridge instead of the cup cupboard (has truly happened so many times).  He is up at the crack of BEFORE dawn even on the weekend, puttering around in the kitchen doing whatever he does in there (on a positive note, I do smell coffee already made 🙂 ).

The Calm Before…

Pulling the covers over my head, I try to muffle out the sounds of doors creaking, kitchen cupboards slamming, and dishes clanging.  Even the dogs are grumbling and huffing with disdain of the way too early morning activity going on.  Finally I can hear him making his way to the door and I’m thinking to  myself…  “finally. silence.”.  I hear him digging out his shoes, and taking his coat out of the closet and creeping out the back door to the man cave.

The Storm…

As the door shuts behind him, the dog leash hanging on the hook beside the door falls to the ground…  My eyes squeeze shut tight instantly knowing and bracing for what was about to happen.   ALL of the dogs jump up and run around the bedroom six times, wagging and panting, collar jingling and barking with excitement, because that is all the signal they need for “It’s time for a W.A.L.K” (I spell out the word walk to avoid the craziness,  but they have learned to spell it out).  I tried calling for him, but he had already made his way out of earshot.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, I pick up the littlest one before she gets trampled on in the pre-W.A.L.K mayhem, dig up some clothes and head out for what is hopefully a very uneventful walk…  Gooood morning!

Back To Bed In My NEW Group Gift?

With any luck I’ll be able to slip back into my comfy new night shirt for another hour or two of sweet dreams when I get back.  I picked up the Miranda Chemise Group Gift at !gO! as a group gift.  The !gO! group tends to do a handful of gifts a year and on occasion sends out instore credit offers, so the 50L join fee was no issue for me!  I have found it has more than made up for it.

Available Sizes:

  • Standard Fitmesh & Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

A day at home

A day at home

Homebody

It’s the middle of the week and I’ve put adventuring on hold for a little bit to take a look at all the free gifts and dollarbies that have been collected over the past several days. With events such as the Vintage Gacha Fair and Liaison Collaborative’s Birthday round, not to mention fun hunts such as the Into the Blue Hunt and great deals on the Marketplace, my loot bag has been filled to the brim.  This casual (finally!) look today was pulled from all of the above and here are the details top to toe;

Let your hair down

Today’s hairstyle is called No Diva, a free gift that’s been generously set out by no.match at their Liaison Collaborative booth. While I’ve heard whispers of the no.match brand before (isn’t Carson’s celebrated new do’ from that store?) I’ve not yet had a chance to try out their products. As the old adage goes, there’s no time like the present and suffice to say I was very gleeful when I tried this hairstyle on for size. To be honest, it was really off to a promising start when I saw that the prize prim was labeled as ‘unicorn’ and guessed that I was in for some really wild and special colors. The multicolored shades go hand in hand with the lovely over the shoulder swirl of the No Diva hairstyle. If red and rainbow tones don’t suit your taste, however, the gift package contains a hud which lets you choose from twelve different color sets.  Other contents of the gift package include:

  • No Diva hairstyle in two different sizes
  • Alpha layer
  • Package containing tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Package containing applier hairbases for mesh heads (TMP, Lelutka, Catwa – Jessica, Omega)
  • Face moles tattoo layer

The birthday round of the Liaison Collaborative closes its doors on the 30th of this month so go and snag this sweet hairstyle before then. Also, Serena’s made a lovely post of some of the other free gifts available at the Liaison Collaborative so get your hands on those too!

To the Market(place) we’ll go

Personally, I’ve found that one of the best times to visit the Marketplace is when I’m stalking Lucky Letter boards/chairs/balloons. While attempting to multitask might make me miss my letter or that magical wildcard round, sometimes it’s worth it when you find a store like !gO! which offer up a plenty of varied dollarbies for sale. One of the first of said dollarbies to catch my eye, thanks to its pretty orange shade, was the Nico shirt. This spaghetti strap top is certainly Spring and Summer-ready and comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with two nifty alpha layers to help with the fitting. The alpha layers are split according to size with sizes XXS-M sharing one alpha layer and the L size with a larger one.  As mentioned the !gO! store boasts several different dollarbies so if you love clothing in the Boho or Vintage style, spend some time taking a look around.

Speaking of Vintage

While I’ve talked about Faida’s Vintage Gacha Fair gacha offering in my last post, I thought that the free gift that they’ve kindly put out at their stall deserved a mention as well. I’m always looking for a good pair of pants and the steamy leather pack certainly fit the bill nicely. While capris can be a rather iffy subject (we all have that one style of clothing that’s pretty low on our list right?) for me, I did like how these ended in soft tiered fabric. Not only did it add a nice feminine touch to the outfit, it also provided a dash of patterns (tatarn) to what would have otherwise been an outfit comprised of only solid colors. The steamy leather capris come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer also included in the gift package. These capris are one of two gifts at Faida’s stalls and let’s just say the other is really great if you roleplay. The Vintage Gacha Fair ends on the 19th so that means it’s only a couple of days more for you to scoop up gifts and play some great gacha machines.

Hunting for shoes

In lieu of pink sneakers, pretty and well made blue ones will do just fine. When I saw the ad for Madison keds by Wicked on my flickr feed, I knew I had to have them for my growing and growing and growing collection. It was pretty exciting to realize that these sneakers would be available for just 1L for the Into the Blue Hunt and you’ll get not one but two different pairs in the prize package. I’m wearing the jeans version in the picture above and while the shot doesn’t do the pair justice there are pretty scalloped flowers on the body of the sneakers. You don’t need mesh feet to slip into these sneakers as the prize comes along with an alpha layer and shoe base. The Madison keds themselves have a resize scrip in them for easy fitting and permissions are set to copy so you can make backups. The Into the Blue hunt is ending on the 29th of this month so get out your nets and hut out your blue butterflies by then and while you’re at Wicked slap their no group needed mini mania. They have lucky chairs too!

And that’s a wrap. The chores are done and all of the animals look like they’re going behave (for now) all that’s left is convincing Damon over here that Halloween is not for several months. Someone tell him that his puppy face is not enough for people to give him candy out of season; please? Oh and before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Madison keds to give you a better idea of the design on them and a look into the other pair that you’re in store for should you decide to hunt these out at Wicked.

The Unforgiven

Kicked Out

But I Called….

… and told her I was stopping for a beer after work with the guys. And yes, I know it is New Year’s Eve and that we HAD plans. But, you know how it goes… time just got away from me. So, as I walked through the door, she was madder than that bear in The Revenant. She told me to and I quote “Get the @#&* out of MY (thought it was ours) house and don’t come back!”. Yeah, I was a few hours late, but we still had time to make the party. Now I’m sitting here in the cold and contemplating just what I did wrong. I’m glad I grabbed the Hunter Jacket by BRAVURA Boite Noir to keep warm. You can find this as a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge. While I was there I also picked up the JZ For Men Classic Tan Jeans, another FREE group gift to the Menstuff members. The group does cost $50L to join, but with the many great gifts, it makes the joining fee well worth it.

A Reprieve, sort of…

After about an hour of me freezing and sulking for being a bad person and her staring me down out the window with eyes made of dragon fire, she opened the door and told me to come inside and warm up. I told her I was sorry and promised it would never happen again. She simply said “OK”, then pointed towards the chair and said this was where I’d be sleeping tonight. AND I was to keep my “hat” on. I reached up and realized that I had forgotten I had on the Baby I’m Back! Lampshade from !gO!  or even how it got on my head. The lampshade comes with a texture HUD if you want to make sure you match.  So here I am, warming by the fire and slowly realizing that this little incident is not yet over…

Forgiven - sort of
