If I Had One Wish

If I Had One Wish
Hello Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for the weekend. Maybe I’ve watched too many romantic comedies, or read too many cheesy love stories, but I’ve been daydreaming about a romantic summer getaway lately. I could really use some gorgeous scenery and a little romance in my life! This little dress (emphasis on little) is a free group gift at Simple. I will say I felt sexy wearing it. The fruit and basket of spirits is another free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, this time from Aphrodite Shop. I really can’t think of a better way to start of a romantic weekend then with a little bubbly and a sexy dress.

The Dress – I wasn’t exaggerating when I said this dress is short, you’ve been warned! I’d even consider wearing it with some shorts, it’d be cute! This flirty dress is a free group gift at Simple. At this time the Simple group is also free to join at this time. This gift comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only in the blue floral pattern shown.

The Basket & Fruit – I have Aphrodite Shop to thank for the free gift basket of drinks and goodies, along with the spread of fresh fruit. This decorative item is a free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. The Fabulously Free in SL group is always always always free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Heiress

The Heiress

TGIF, fabulous readers! A few days ago, I paid a visit to On9 and found BUNCHES of gifts set out from the vendors for this round. I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here today.

NOTE: To pick up these gifts, you will need to head over to On9 and join the free in-world group.

Take Back Your Mink

Just kidding, don’t you dare! 

When I put on this gorgeous satin dress with the mink jacket, I felt sort of Paris Hilton-y, so that’s where the name for this post came from. 😉

The Marlena dress and jacket is the On9 gift from AnaMarkova. It comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The dress and jacket are separate pieces, so you could wear the dress without the jacket, or wear the jacket with another outfit if you choose. I like versatility. 🙂

Dressed to Impress… With FREE Gifts

The fashionable AnaMarkova dress isn’t the only On9 gift I’m wearing today. Here are a few more!

ICONIC’s gift is a generous pack of hair. Katherine includes 6 color packs, as well as a styler HUD so you can choose from 2 different styles.

HAYSURIZA is gifting a huge set of pearl jewelry. The set includes:

  • Necklace* (includes optional add-on decoration)
  • Bracelet (optional add-on decoration)
  • Earrings for day wear*
  • Earrings for evening wear
  • Choker
  • Ring* (2 options)

* The asterisked items are the ones I’m wearing in this photo.

So Sparkly

The final On9 gift I’m sharing today is this glittery nail palette from Alaskametro<3.

alaskametro<3 "New Years" nail appliers (black/copper) for on9 - gift

Mani/pedi appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled hands are included. You can apply all the same color or a mix of all five if you prefer. The Maitreya HUD has a button to apply a mix of all the colors.

A girl really can’t have too much glitter, can she? ❤

My Own World

My Own World

Panic Mode

I woke up this morning with a touch of “holiday panic.” You know, that feeling you get when the holidays are creeping up on you waaaay too fast. Your heart starts racing, you feel like you can’t breathe… you break out in a cold sweat. Yeah. It seems like summer was just starting… and now it’s almost Thanksgiving. 😮

I headed out in search of a quiet place to collect my thoughts and wound up on the couch at a coffee bar on the Oh Deer sim. A couple of lattes and some smooth jazz later, I think I might be kinda-sorta-maybe ready to tackle the holidays.

Or maybe I’ll just start with a turkey and see how it goes.

A Sweater and Leather

Before running off in a coffee panic, I managed to get myself dressed in the latest group gift from Ghee. The Ombre Sweater and Leather Pants duo come in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh standard XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A texture-change HUD is included so you can choose from brown, black, burgundy, and blue ombre for the sweater, and the same colors (without the ombre) for the pants.

Since the sweater is cropped, and I was cold thanks to the snow and all, I added a tank top underneath. I picked up the Enora tanks by Edenia on the Marketplace for 1L and used the included appliers for Maitreya. Check out Pru’s post HERE to see what they look like without a sweater.

To “top” things off, I added a cute hat. You can pick up this derby – as well as a baseball cap, felt hat, and Homburg hat – as a free gift from ICONIC at HairOLogy. I didn’t realize how pretty it was until I turned on my windlight and saw the lovely textures!

Each hat comes with a HUD containing several colors (varies by hat), and all are resizeable from the HUD. I’m sure they would also look great on the guys.

Ok, now that I’m all latte’d up, I think I’m ready to brave Costco to do some shopping. Until next time! 😀

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. I’ve got a few fantastic gifts to share with you, starting with this fabulous skirt from Gato.

To get your copy, head over to Gato and join the subscriber, the gift will be delivered automatically.

I always enjoy the group gifts from Empire, but I especially like these adorable heels. They are the April group gift at Empire and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. They come in the usual sizes, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Maitreya, and they include a color change hud that gives you 20 color options and allows you to change individual parts of the shoe. Also, the cute little bows at the heel are optional. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 499 linden, and currently there is more than one group gift still available.

Don’t Say a Word

Don't Say a Word

“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.”

Feeling Introspective…

When I saw the group gift from Le Morte, I knew I had to have it. The join fee is 50L but I wanted the mouth tape gift of “Silence” as it spoke to me on so many levels. I’m a person who speaks out after all. And the idea of representing silence seemed important. Because I really don’t think we should remain silent when issues are important to us. I won’t get into politics or issues here, but I’ll offer a heartfelt plea to all of you… speak out. Don’t remain silent when something is important to you. I am pretty sure the saying goes that you’ll regret the things you didn’t do, more than the things you did do. That’s sort of the idea I’m going on here.

Hairology is still going on!

On a lighter note, the Hairology Anniversary celebration is still going strong, and you can still pick up lots of FREE and 1L gifts of beautiful hair until November 30th, when the event ends. I picked up my beautiful hair from Iconic called “Michelle” as a FREE gift from Hairology. It came with a fatpack hud of colors. There are lots of other gifts to be had at this event so it is a not-to-be-missed one! Mark it down and teleport in!

It will be back to school soon in my neck of the woods and lots of people are gearing up for that time of year. I wanted to enjoy some last minute beach time before it became “hitting the books” time. So I checked out the Pool Party Hunt to see what I could find and struck gold (or in this case black and white!) with this amazing one piece suit from Lady Dragon’s Design.

This retro look one piece suit is part the creator’s 1L offering as the hunt prize and comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Maitreya and Slink. (While you are there, be sure to pick up the Women’s Stuff Hunt gift which is also out for only 1L — you’ll get a gorgeous full outfit that includes slink shoes!).

Speaking of “Back to School” — be thinking of all those cool Back to School photos you’ll want to enter into the Back to School FabFree Photo Challenge! Details were posted by our lovely Julianna [here].

Have a great day!

Flowers & Paws

Flowers and Paws

Evening FabFree! It’s been a busy weekend for me, but I dropped in to share some special treats with you… a little bit here… a little bit there! It all adds up to something colorful!

This round of Hairology wraps up June 30th, so if you haven’t stopped by to get all the FREE SLB13 cake gifts, you should hurry. Tonight, I’m showing you the gift from Iconic. It is a high and sleek, mesh pony tail that is really stylish. It’s a full fatpack of colors, so don’t miss out.

My mesh LBGT Pride shirt by GetDressed is a lucky 9L find on the marketplace. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and its own alpha if you are using a standard system body. I liked the loose fit and the unique texture on the material of the traditional tank top cut.

My pretty manicure will only set you back 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. You still have time to get in on the goods at the Cart Wash! This manicure is by New.Monday and called “Flower Power”. It features flowers on your nails. For just 10L you get 3 colors for Slink nails. There are a couple of other pretty manicure sets out that you’ll want to check out!

Flowers and Paws 2

I also picked up my Pride paws body paint at the Cart Wash Sale courtesy of the same Cart. New.Monday has set out the Pride Paws in either a top or bottom layer for just 10L each. So if you want only one or you want both, it’s up to you! You have the flexibility! This body paint is system layer only, but definitely worth rocking you system body for!

My shorts are another great find at the Cart Wash Sale (I told you I was giving you the goods this evening!). You’ll find this great pair of high waist shorts at the Vicarious Youth Cart for just 10L. They come in distressed Denim. I found that they ran a little on the small side, so I did have to wear a larger-than-my-usual size, but they are still a great fit!

Hello readers! Time for fabulous freebies from the Brickness sim at Hair Fair 2013! So, let’s get right to it, shall we? 😀

Hair Fair 2013: Gifts at the Brickness Sim

Since there were no clothing gifts on this sim, I decided to wear this colorful, summery dress from Hudson’s Clothing Co. It’s the July group gift, and the group is free to join. I added the brand-new group gift jewelry from Maxi Gossamer (check group notices), which comes with a texture-changing HUD. Oh, and my hair? One of two free gifts from Damselfly. This one is Felicity (oL), and comes in pretty much every color.

Hair – Damselfly Felicity (0L / Hair Fair 2013)

Calico Ingmann Creations has generously set out 4 different gifts in a bazillion different colors! All for come with 2 different HUDS, including one for streaks. And did I mention that all 4 only cost 1L? 🙂

Hair – Calico Ingmann Creations Mandy & Denise (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

Here are the other 2 from Calico Ingmann. Again, 2 HUDs for each with a whole lotta colors! I love the sexy,  updo, Desiree. Oh, and when I shot the first picture, I had no idea that Faenzo/Goucci’s gift was earrings! UPDATE: Unfortunately, when I checked this evening, the gift from Faenzo/Goucci seems to be gone. If you happen to find it, please let me know.

Hair – Calico Ingmann Creations Renata & Desiree (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

I think I look a little like Suzanne Somers here. I know, I’m dating myself, but that was my first thought when I saw this picture! This vibrant, green hair and the cute bows are courtesy of Eep (1L). You can wear the hair with or without the bows, or you can wear the bows separately, since they change colors.

Hair – Eep Hair 012 & bows (1L / Hair Fair 2013)

And now, a couple of long styles. One the left is Freedom from Iconic (0L), which comes in 4 main color packs, with several more colors in the HUD of each. The band is also texture-change, but the textures are flags from different countries! I’m wearing Ireland here (Hey Love, there’s one for Canada!). My purple pony on the right is from Miamai. It comes in 6 different colors with a HUD to change the color of the hair bands.

Two gifts on the right: the hair is from !Lamb (0L), and it comes in more colors than I have the energy to count tonight. My favorite is “My Little Pony.” /me giggles  Do you need a tiara? I mean, who doesn’t, really. So be sure to stop by the Slink (1L) booth to pick up this texture-changing beauty. 😀

Both the hairpin and bow are texture-change. Have I mentioned how much I love stuff that is texture-change? I wish RL came with that option!

OMG, I’ve tried on so much HAIR… I’m losing it! AAAAAAGGGH!

Lol, I could never try on too much hair, but I am kind of starting to feel a little like this. Hair Studio One (1L) definitely gets the award for the most amusing Hair Fair gift; this one is called “Bad Hair Day,” and it includes the frazzled pose and hair. My lovely expression is not included, but was added via the free Anypose Expression HUD.

Hair/Pose – Hair Studio One Bad Hair Day (1L / Hair Fair 2013)
