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.

Pixie Fluff

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!

Hair –¬†Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Hair base –¬†Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Head –¬†CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Coffee and Gossip

I needed a little “caffeine therapy” on this rainy (in RL) Monday morning, and I managed to grab Sheidey¬†to join me for some lattes and girl talk. I was so happy to see that spring had sprung at of my favorite SL spots, the Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe.

After gossiping about which hunts had the best gifts, and whether we thought Carson looked better in his Signature or Adam body, I had the nifty idea of snapping a selfie to share on IG. This must have been the laggiest day in SL EVER because what I thought would be a quick pic wound up taking about 20 minutes. Poor Sheidey was so sweet and patient while I fiddled with my slow-moving graphics settings, eventually taking about 3 photos before I crashed and gave up. But I definitely think this one is a keeper! ūüėÄ

Make Mine a Venti

Sheidey and I had plenty of Lindens to spend on large, expensive coffee drinks because we had saved so much on our fabulously free outfits! We’re both wearing the latest group gifts from Hilly Haalan: Sheidey in the red Evelyn Dress, and me in the pink¬†Almila Belted Dress. Both dresses include matching shoes.

Sizes for the Almila Belted Dress include:

  • Fitmesh for Classic Avatars
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Sizes for the Evelyn Dress include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project (TMP)
  • Shoes for Maitreya, Slink, and TMP feet

The Hilly Haalan group is free to join. You can find these dresses in the group notices and at the in-world store (along with LOTS of other gifts). ūüôā

Hazy Shade Of Winter

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulous Readers!¬† I am so glad to be home¬†after a nasty morning of trying to¬†navigate¬†first through the freshly dumped snow and treacherous icy roads,¬†and then again in the supermarket where everyone appeared to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed.¬† I won’t even mention the events in the parking lot afterward… It’s still too fresh in my mind!¬† I was off work on Friday…¬† should have done it then! (head/desk)

A Supermarket Meltdown

I¬†actually saw one man have a melt down¬†in the salad dressing aisle when he realized that the¬†elderly lady hogging the¬†whole aisle that he¬†had cleverly tried to avoid by skipping¬†one row was now in front of him again.¬† Without any regard to who was around him, he just dropped his head to the handle of his shopping cart and groaned.¬†¬†I nodded my¬†head at him understandingly when he noticed I caught that and all either of us could do was laugh and look forward to¬†following that¬†woman’s buggy all the way through the¬†entire store…¬† and we did.

Free As A Dove

When I got home, I wanted nothing more than a stiff drink lol, but it was too early for that so I decide a little blog therapy was in order!  I popped into Second Life and took a trip to The Free Dove where I found that Hilly Haalan has an amazing complete outfit set out there for all to pick up for FREE on the clothing table.

The Coco Outfit includes the following pieces all in mesh sizing with necessary alphas for those on the system body:

  • Sweater
  • Pants
  • Boots
  • Sunglasses
  • Purse

/me looks at the weather forecast…¬† MORE SNOW -.-

**************

Love is wearing…

Mesh Body ‚Äď Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head ‚Äď Catwa¬†Candy
Head Applier ‚Äst¬†Glam Affair Renee¬†
Eyes ‚Äď IKON Triumph Eyes Dusk
Hair ‚Äď Truth¬†Debra

Hello everyone, I have a few great freebie finds for you today from an event called True Fashion Times. It runs until 22nd November so you have a few days to get there and check it out. Lots of designers have put free gifts and dollarbies out in their stores so be sure to check as you wander around. There is also a huge stretch of gachas for you to play also! Today I am showing you two great gifts from Lavarock Creations, one for the ladies and one for the guys! The Lita and Lito jackets are freebies found at their store at this event and I thought I would bring in the lovely Mr0mizu to help show them off.

Also at the event are the shorts I am wearing. The Susy Shorts are by Sweet Temptation and are part of a freebie two piece outfit that includes the shorts and a tied vest top, that you can find at their store at the event.

All The Dreams There Are To Know

Hello FabFree readers, I hope you are all doing well and the week is treating you kindly! Just another couple of days until the weekend.. time surely is flying!

Untitled

I have a bit of an obsession with lingerie and sleepwear in SL as it can be so pretty and girly, so whenever I find a new set I am always thrilled. Yesterday, Hilly Haalan generously placed out a new free group gift of a beautiful camisole set in two colours called Luna and I just instantly fell in love with it. I couldn’t wait to show it to you!

Untitled

The background that I am using is a gorgeous set called the India Wall Unit by Mirage. IT comes complete with the lighting, the mat, cushions and candles and is just so so pretty it has to be seen to really be appreciated. The rug comes complete with some cute couples poses also. You can find it at this months Genre event!

The Curator

The Curator

Over the years, I won’t say how many, I’ve fancied several “dream jobs”, one of which would be a curator for an art gallery of some kind. I also believe that fashion and art go together like mint in a mojito! I’d like to think I would wear outfits like this one for such a job. This little black dress from Beepin is so pretty on, I love the color combination. Wearing it made me feel smart and sophisticated, yes, the right outfit can do that! Lucky for me, and for all of you, this dress is a group gift from Beepin at the current round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room. While picking up this must have dress, I spotted the perfect shoes to go with it. Hilly Haalan has out these gorgeous shoes for just $70 lindens. The texture and detail in these heels is stunning. I love how the detailing on the front appears almost like a scorpion, whether that is intentional or not, I’m not certain. Either way, they are too pretty to pass up!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Strolling in Venice

Hello all! I’m so excited to be joining this team of fabulous bloggers on FabFree. As Love said, I’ve been following this blog almost as long as it¬†has been around, and my¬†too-full inventory is proof of that, *grins*, but there is always room for more!!

Alrighty, let’s get down to why we are all here…..the lovely mesh Venice Dress that is the current free group gift from Hilly Haalan.
Hilly Haalen Dress_010-Edit

I am a big fan of designs that are classic and easy to accessorize. This dress is exactly that, and as an added bonus, it comes with a HUD¬†that gives you a total of 8 different textures to choose from, as seen below¬†(although SL was playing it’s usual games with me, so I was unable to get pictures of the 2 striped options. One is black and white stripes, and the other is navy blue and white stripes). It is mesh, and is available in the 5 standard sizes.

To get this lovely dress, you just have to go down to the shop and join the group, which is free to join, and click on the board in front of the desk. Now, for those of you who might be full in the group area, you can also find this on the MP [HERE]  for L$10. While I like free more, knowing how hard it can be to free up a group slot, L$10 is still a great deal.

So there it is, my very first, ever, blog post! Let me know what you thought. I believe this is the start of a beautiful blog friendship ūüôā
