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 Scandalizing Night

Snapshot_003Hey there FabFree!  I am feeling a bit like a Scandalize spokesperson lately sending you there week after week, but they just keep putting out these awesome group gifts, and well… My job is to tell you about awesome freebies…right?!

I Hope You Listened!

I hope that you joined the Scandalize inworld group from reading previous posts, because there is now a 100L fee to join the group.  Still..  One can’t complain even about the 100L join fee as there is a whole wall full of free group gifts for VIPs and it continues to grow by the week.

What’s New?

The latest group gift at Scandalize is the little black lace lingerie number you see me wearing today. I did add on a pair of panties from my inventory, but that’s up to you if you decide to do the same!  This design is called Night, and comes compatible for the following body types:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

More Fab Coverage of Scandalize Group Gifts:

All of these goodies and more are still available at Scandalize with your group tag activated.

Join the R3VOLT

Join the R3VOLT
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m honestly not sure how this group gift, or gifts I should say, at R3VOLT escaped me for so long. As the name might suggest, R3VOLT specializes in mostly urban style casual clothing. Right now there is a wall full of FREE group gifts available to all R3VOLT  VIP group members. Even better, there are gifts for the guys as well as the gifts for the ladies! The R3VOLT group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Personally, I think the fee is worth it just for the number of gifts currently available. I’ve added a photo of the wall-o-gifts below.

I thought this hi-lo tank top at R3VOLT was really cute, and perfect now that the weather is starting to warm up down here in the south. What makes this great gift fabulous is the texture change hud. I love when clothing has this feature. The Carly top includes a hud with 15 textures (10 prints and 5 solids), standard mesh sizes, and matching alpha layers for classic avatars. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Getting ready

Getting ready

The need to unwind

It’s been a pretty busy couple of days for me out in the real world (the kind that leaves you feeling as if you’ve been trampled on by a small herd of elephants). While all of this stampeding activity is far from over I thought I’d take advantage of a lucky little lull to sneak onto SL for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Seeing how it’s St Patrick’s Day, a green outfit was in order and happily enough Baby Monkey’s new free group gift, Else, was just the dress for this occasion. This quarter sleeved, collared shirt dress has a chic retro vibe to it that’s accentuated by the pretty bowed belt at its waist. The cherry blossom print of the Else dress not only adds a dash of sweetness to the outfit but a lovely contrasting white as well. What I adore most about this new group gift, however, is its versatility. You’re able to wear the blouse and skirt components as one single outfit or wear them individually to mix and match with other pieces of clothing in your inventory. The gift package includes a hud which lets you switch up between two different colors (warm green and bright blue) for the blouse, skirt, and belt, opening up more combinations for you to play around with. Sizes include:

Blouse:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Skirt:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Dress:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya

The Baby Monkey Group costs 20L to join and to add the Else dress to your collection you’ll just have to pay the vendor 1L before getting an instant refund. Use that dollar to snap up the other current group gifts at the store as well (past group gifts cost 10L each).

Getting ready

Accessorize

Speaking of eye-catching colors, the Aishas set from Legendarie certainly fits the bill very well. These lovely fuschia heels and matching clutch bag are a free gift for everyone, meaning that you don’t have to use up group slots or tap any sub-o machines to get your hands on them. There was no way I could pass up on these flirty strappy slingbacks (only made for Slink high feet, however) and the fact that there’s a matching clutch thrown into the mix just sweetens up the pot. There are two different versions of the clutch bag included in the gift package, one worn on your avatar’s hand and the other worn higher. You’re able to move, rotate and stretch the clutch and permissions are set to copy so do make backups before editing. I’m not sure how long this pretty gift will be out for so get it ASAP.  Legendarie is a generous store that set out free gifts fairly regularly so I would recommend putting it on your ‘must watch’ list. Though there’s a 99L group join fee there are tons of past gifts to pick up at the store.

Hairstyles

One of these days I’ll stop writing about the Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round but that day clearly isn’t today. There are so many great free gifts by awesome designers and I was really excited to discover that there’s not one but two hairstyles that you can snap up at the event at no cost at all. The Ullrika hairstyle from EMO-tions is a great messy updo that allows you to just toe the line when looking for something elegant by not too formal. The pretty braided details of the Ullrika hairstyle are a very nice touch as well. In the gift package, you’ll receive

  • Two versions of the Ullrika hairstyle, one for larger chests
  • Huds for the Black/White, Blondes, Brunettes, Reds and Pastels palette colors. Each hud contains eight tones and a resize script
  • Fatpack of tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Hairbase appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and mesh heads using the Omega system.
  • Hair alpha layer

The Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round is running until the end of the month so go and snap up your gifts if you haven’t already.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got my keys right here and I’m pretty sure I haven’t left the stove on. Time to hit the grid and take a peek at those Fifty Linden Friday offers. Happy St Patrick’s Day! I’ll catch you guys later!

Soap Is Slippery Business, That Ain’t No Lye!

Snapshot_003
Good afternoon Fabulous Readers! Today I am stopping in to share news about a new group gift with a fatpack of dresses and tell you a little real life secret of mine.

Fatpacking Hali

Serena recently blogged about a gorgeous group gift at Miss Chelsea [HERE], and they have released an awesome fatpack of the jersey dresses called Hali as shown below.  This group is 100L to join, but between the gown that Serena previously showed that is still available and this fun fatpack, it’s worth every little linden you’ll have to part with to join.

Sizes included:

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

.miss chelsea. hali dress - group gift @ the main store now!

 

My Undirty Little Secret

I am sure you all know that my biggest shopping crutch in Second Life is probably… hair, and that is a sweet spot for many of us girls here on the grid, but we all have real life shopping crutches too, and one of mine…  is handmade soap!

I can’t get enough of the bubbly stuff.  I have stacks and baskets, and bags full and still buy more.  On occasion I’ll even make some myself!  Anyways, I pretty much “SQUEEEE-ed” when I came across the new Soap Collection Gacha Set by Kraftworks at this round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room, I couldn’t help myself!  This machine is just 50L per play and offers 9 commons and 1 rare (the scale).

I really thought the slippery soap should have been the rare, because it’s so funny.  I did another little GIF to show you what happens when you rez the Slippery Soap and sit on it.

I’ve Got A Pocket Full of Sunshine

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulous Readers!  While I am still knee deep in RL snow, I am thankful that I can take some time out of my day to enjoy the sun in Second Life.

Turning Up The Heat

I have been spending a lot of time exploring the Devin Sim lately, and I have been finding so many wonderful little spots for photography and quiet moments, but I hadn’t yet seen that there is a really nice beachy area on the far side of the landing point!  I am glad I flew up and looked down to see if I had missed anything because it was just what I needed!  I plopped myself into a beach chair, settled into a comfy resting pose and turned up the sunshine (via windlight, of course!).

New Group Gift @ N-UNO

It was just lucky that I had recently eyed up a new group gift at N-Uno that fit the fashion bill for my little beachy recess.  The March Group Gift at N-Uno is the lovely Dasha Outfit that I am wearing.  It includes the sparkle trimmed bikini and sun dress (sheer & opaque versions!).

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

This group is 150L to join, but once you do join this group – you will also gain access to group lucky boards and midnight mania offers too!

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
