Yearning For Spring Things!

Yearning For Spring Things
With this being the second day of spring *looks out her RL window to see snow and ice still*, I’m all kinds of yearning for these springy type things… Playing in the garden, outdoor market shopping, impromptu road trips, Frapuccinos, and most of all… bare feet!

MOoH! At The Designers Circle

Today I’m wearing a free outfit by MOoH! that can be found at The Designers Circle just for visiting!  The Designers Circle is celebrating an anniversary round and with that, as Aline mentioned in her blog post yesterday [HERE] –  several of the vendors are offering free gifts or dollarbies that you can either obtain upon “touch” or “buy”.  The free gift by MOoH! is the Veda Outfit which includes a summery striped tank top and a sweet frilled skirt.  There is also a texture change HUD included that offers 6 solid textures for the skirt and  6 striped textures for the top!

Veda Outfit Sizes Included:

  • Top – XXS-XL Mesh / Skirt – XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layers
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • TMP

Fading Into Spring

For my springy outfit, I needed to paint my nails a matching shade and I found the perfect set by Hello Dave as a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift!  It’s a little tough to see in my photo, but I have included their vendor ad below so you can see all six delicious Spring Fade colour options.

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

Oh my goodness, hasn’t this been an amazing week of shopping and gift-getting? Thank goodness SL offers an endless supply of 24-hour coffee shops so we can always find a caffeine pick-me-up to keep us going. 😆

The only thing I love more than December Advent calendars is December Advent calendars that don’t expire after one day! You know, sometimes Real Life happens, and you can’t get in-world one day so you end up missing out on a really amazing gift.

Well, today I bring you glad tidings of TWO stores that have Advent calendars with gifts you can pick up until Christmas!

Advent Adventures

PurpleMoon Creations has once again set out an Advent calendar with beautiful, high-quality gifts. I’m showing you three of them today.

First up is the gorgeous green Velvet Dress, which was the Advent gift for day #7. It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Fitmesh XXS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

The jewelry you see here were also Advent gifts from PurpleMoon. My necklace and earrings were the gifts for day #5, and the pretty snow globe ring was the gift for day #8. I don’t believe the ring is specifically for bento-enabled hands, but it seems to work fine with my Maitreya hands.

Another must-visit Advent calendar is the one at Hello Dave. Each day, there is a new, holiday-themed nail palette for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled (includes Belleza, Empire, and Vista) hands. I’m wearing the day #6 palette, which is white with delicate gold snowflakes.

To receive these – and more! – Advent gifts, you will need to join each store’s in-world group. But it’s a small price to pay for the fabulous gifts you will receive, not only at Christmas, but ALL YEAR LONG, as both stores are extremely generous with gifts. 😀

P.S. Just a note about my shoes by BREATHE: they are still available as a free gift at FaMESHed. But don’t look for them under the Christmas tree; you’ll find them next to one of the concierge tables outside the glass ring. These shoes come with a texture-change HUD and were originally shown in black by Love HERE last month.

Get This Party Started

Get This Party Started

I love holiday parties. Good food, good friends, and everything is so bright and shiny. I just wish we could get this party started.

Part of the problem could be that I’m the first to arrive. I’m not sure if I’m too early or if everyone else is just fashionably late.

Guess I’ll just stand here awkwardly with the food until someone else shows up. :-/

Black and Gold

I’m decked out tonight in a new party frock from Hilly Haalan. The sexy, strapless Kaylee Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The gorgeous statement necklace I’m wearing is the latest group gift from Maxi Gossamer. Click for a menu to change the texture from gold to silver, the beads from white to black, or to resize. Matching earrings are included.

Oooh, I think I see someone… “Hey, Love! Over here, Love!!”

/me waves madly

“Oh… sorry! I thought you were someone else.” 😳

A Shutterbug in a Winter Wonderland

Kodak moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I visited The Mill for another dose of winter wonderland, and came across multiple kodak moments.  There aren’t too many things that would make me kneel in the snow (brrrr!) to snap a photo, but the gorgeous landscape, and Rip’s new pals decked in winter accessories are two of them.  Aren’t Rufus and Rex super cute?

Lilian and Naia Are Super Cute, Too!

There is something so classic in the combination of red and black, and I created this look today by combining three group gifts.  First, my off-the-shoulder, crimson sweater is a free gift from ::LiES:: Creations for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group.  With ribbed knitting on the neck and hemline, and a realistic texture in the body of the sweater, this top is bright and cheerful.  Inside the gift package, you will find versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Since the MGS&N group is free to join, the Lilian pullover won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Also a group gift, this time from Belle Epoque, my Naia pants come in black, blue, red, white and yellow, so it’s like getting four presents in one.  A free giftie for members of the Teleport Hub group, these trousers don’t come in different sizes, but they fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly, closely hugging each and every curve.  Featuring a shimmering, satiny texture topped with well placed folds, Naia is sure to flatter your figure.  To add these slacks to your inventory, simply journey to the shop on the Wild Willows sim, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and tap the vendor.  While you are there, you might want to scoop up the theatrical Venetian Mask which is a gift for Fab Free group members.

All Wrapped Up

To add a finishing touch, I applied a brilliant red manicure, which is a free gift from Hello Dave for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  You can get a better view of this fun polish in my close up below.  “Early Wrapping” features silver ribbons tied across a cherry red background, which is bound to put you in a festive mood!  This applier is compatible with Slink (v2 and above), Maitreya (just click the small nail polish bottles on the right side of the HUD), and Belleza, Vista and Empire (providing you have the appropriate Omega System Kit for the particular brand of hands).

Kodak Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap for this post (I couldn’t resist the pun).  Rip and I are off to explore some more of this wintery landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂
