Need A Penny, Take A Penny

BelleEpoqueGG
Hello again FabFree! I know I blogged this store yesterday, but I am sending you right back to Belle Epoque today to pick up another awesome group gift that has just been released!

Time Portal

Oh, how I wish I could have been around in the 50’s and 60’s to wear these dishy dresses and walk down the city streets with my shopping bag (that I probably filled for under $10!).  At least in Second Life, we have Belle Epoque to take us back in time fashionably :).  Now you can pick up the Penny Dress as shown on my avatar (including the scarf) in one fitmesh size as a free group gift (10L to join).  I am wearing the Ocean colour that is included, but also included is Aubergine, Shadow and Olive!

Have a great day!

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.

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). 🙂

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green – it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them – or a pair in teal – for 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Packa brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The Julia applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! 😀

Periwinkle Snowflake

Snapshot_005

Hello Fabulous Readers! I have returned to tell you about another brilliant Women Only Hunt 2 prize that I recently picked up!  I might as well… the weather is minus a billion and it’s dumping snow all over the place.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Don’t worry…  Environment Canada ensures me it will warm up in 7 days! [Click to see a funny video about weather in Canada]

Speaking of snow…  It’s Snowing At Petite Mort

Petite Mort is participating in the WOH2 this year and has a gorgeous silvery periwinkle dress for you as a FREE prize once you locate the hidden snowflake hunt icon.  This is a tricky one and it took me a while to find it, but as you can see…  It’s worth the challenge!

Sizes included:

  • Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Take My Picture

takemypicture1

Hello again Fabfreebers! Do you have an open group slot and are interested in free group gifts? Do you like my dress? If you said yes to both of those, than you need to join the Amazing Creations group. My cute tunic dress is one of many free group gifts you can pick up after joining their group. In this particular gift, you actually get 2 versions of this dress, the one I am showing off, and another with a similar black and white print on it. They are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. As much as I love lots of colour, there is something to be said for a great black and white dress that allows little pops of colour from your accessories, to really shine. The Amazing Creations group is free to join, and there are loads of group gifts, for both men and ladies, as well as several group lucky letter chairs. Just make sure you have your tag on to take advantage of it all.

Until next time, TTFN!

Go Strapless

Snapshot_002
Hello Fabulous ladies :). If you are in the market for a new formal gown, be sure to stop by Satus Inc. this weekend and check out the Strapless Party Gowns that are available in several colours for just 60L each for a very limited time.

I am wearing the beige today which I think is very classy but I also saw red, blue and black available if you feel a bit more daring.  In the box you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and Fitmesh and mesh sizing as well.

Hey, Shit Happens

Snapshot_002
Good evening FabFree Readers! I have returned tonight to show off a couple more of the The Love Pink Hunt prizes!

If you are ever having one of “those SL days” and need a reminder that sometimes shit just happens for no reason, MELONopolis can hook you up with a big neon lighted décor sign!  It’s a pretty cool piece to have in your inventory and would be a great addition to lots of different types of decorating to mix things up a bit!   All you need to do is locate the hidden pink heart icon at the MELONopolis store and pay it 2 little lindens.

You might notice my dress is also pink, and yes –  It is also a Love Pink Hunt item.  This lovely pink mesh dress with the bow on one shoulder is also just 2L, available inside the hidden Love Pink Hunt icon at Dollle.

Enjoy your evening!

Boxing Day dog walking

winterwalk1B

Hello again! It’s Boxing Day here in Canada, as well as in a few other countries. What that means for us, big sales! It’s kind of like Black Friday for Americans. While neither of the items I’m going to show off today were for Boxing Day, 1 is a great sale price, and the other is a Black Friday gift that’s still available. So it’s kinda like Boxing Day shopping 🙂

winterwalk3

While I did obviously make it into SL for a little while yesterday, I did not have enough time to run around and take a look at any of the Fifty Linden Friday items that were available. However, today I started looking through notices, and saw what Ingenue had put out for their FLF sale item. I had to run over and see if it was still up. Yay for me, it was! So, fair warning…I do not know how long you will be able to get these fabulous Lydia D. Booties in the Frosty Morning colouring, for the L$50 sale price. They are meant for the medium height feet for SLink, which I am wearing, Belleza, and Maitreya. I really do love the aqua colour of these, and they conveniently matched my new sweater I’d only just picked up at Uber, from Blueberry (I seriously got the sweater first, and then saw the boots. I love when it works out like that!). I’ll cross my fingers for you all that they stay out at this price for quite a while.

I love a warm, cozy scarf. Heck, even my new Husky friend has one! It was great for me then, when I headed over to amiable to pick up their Christmas gift (which I may show off soon in another post) that I found this great texture change scarf as their Black Friday gift, free for group members. I know, Black Friday is well over, but amiable always leaves their gifts out, so those of you who may have missed when they came out, like I did with this scarf, can still grab them later! All you need to do to get it, is join their free group, if you aren’t already in it, and while wearing your tag, click on the picture. You get 2 versions of this scarf in the box, one rigged mesh version, and an unrigged version. Both are texture change with a hud, and I also found, that the unrigged version is actually mod, so you can choose the white texture on the hud, and then tint it as needed in edit. That’s what I did, picking this lovely darker aqua colour to match my outfit.

OK, I think my pup is ready to head back inside now, and I think I am ready myself. As pretty as the snow is, and as warm and cozy as I am in my boots and scarf, I have a fire waiting for me, and probably a cup of hot cocoa. So, until next time, TTFN!

The Heat Wave Event: Entice

Snapshot_002

Greetings Fabulous Readers!  Today in my blog post I am featuring the fine and very affordable fashions that you can pick up on the Entice display at The Heat Wave Event on The Wash Sim.  In the above photo you will see me wearing my favourite item on display – The Head Over Heels Dress in Lavender Rose which is available for just 10L.  This feminine piece is simply dishy with the all over floral print and bottom skirt frills.  As you can see in the photo below there are 9 ladies fashions available at 10L and a pair of add-on heels (for Maitreya & Slink) featured at 50L.

Snapshot_003

ps.  Without taking away from the Entice feature, I also wanted to pop in a little note about the other cost effective gacha items in my post because they are all under 75L too.  The Damaris Hair includes the hibiscus flower and is 50L per play at The Arcade Gacha.  My Carmen Wedges are also available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play and include Slink & Maitreya add-on options.  You can also find my Atomic Alpaca Pal at The Arcade Gacha for 75L per play.  The furnishings in the photo are by Apt. B from The instore Douze Roses Gacha Set which is 55L per play.
