Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go AwayRain Rain Go Away…

This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.

Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.

There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.

The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.

Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Come Again Another Day…Come Again Another Day

During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Rock-A-Billy Chick

Time Warp

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I popped on some Rockabilly music, and traveled back in time to capture a snapshot for today’s Fabulous Find. My brilliant blue polka dot frock is one of the latest gifts available to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  Did you know that 56 generous designers offer gifts just for our members?  You can check out the entire group gift listing {HERE}.

You Belong to Me (♬ tune ♬)

Well, the Rock-A-Billy Blue ensemble can belong to you, too.  All you have to do to add this free sassy little number to your inventory is teleport over to Brandy’s Boutique, click the vendor, and pay one Linden.  Don’t worry, you’ll get your Linden dollar instantly returned along with delivery of this darling nostalgic outfit.  With a form-fitting bodice, and a frilly skirt adorned with frothy lace, this dress will have you ready to rock around the clock in retro style.  I love the swirling movement the flexi skirt provides….so fun for swing dancing!  The studded, sling back heels adorned with the cutest little bows, which are included in the gift, fit my Slink high feet perfectly.

What’s Included:

  • Rock-a-Billy Blue Multi Applier HUD (Lena Body, Maitreya and Slink)
  • Jacket, shirt, pants, underwear and tattoo layer for classic avatars
  • Flexi skirt
  • Studded bow heels

Uh oh….. The Time Machine’s on the Fritz!

Ripley and I had a blast at the Nifty 50’s Diner, but when we tried to travel home, we discovered to our dismay, that the button to bring us back to the future was broken.  As soon as we can figure out how to repair this contraption, we’ll return to tell you about some more finds.  I hope it won’t take too long…

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

Taking a Break

Happy Middle of the Week to you, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are taking a break after spending a good part of the day in RL de-cluttering a closet.  It feels really good to organize and open up space!  Now, if only I could get motivated to do the same with my SL inventory!  After over 8 and a half years on Second Life, organizing that monstrosity is something I really need to do.  Maybe tomorrow……

I Know I Said I’d De-clutter, But…………It Was FREE!

The pupster and I decided to swing by Brii Underground to check out the latest group gift, and it is so adorable, I scooped it up immediately.  The free Linei Urban Style Complete Outfit is a comfy, body-hugging denim mini dress with tons of eye-catching details such as the realistic seams and folds in the fabric, an optional belt that draws the eye to your midsection, and the silver center zipper.   The gift also includes jewelry – the necklaces and bracelets I am wearing in my photo, and the heart-adorned heels in a perfectly coordinated shade of blue.  A pair of sunglasses, which I opted not to wear for my picture, complete the ensemble.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Belt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Necklaces, bracelets, sunglasses
  • Tattoo for classic avatars, Maitreya, Omega and Slink (not shown)
  • Omega make up applier and make up for classic avatars on the tattoo layer
  • Optional light

If only Ripley had paid more attention during the organization segment of our dog obedience classes………. Ah well, at least he excelled in tracking and bargain hunting!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

WOH3 Goes to the Beach

Beach DayHello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
WOH
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty

Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.

Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.

Sizes Included: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

The Summer Lovin Hunt has numerous stops and the 1L prizes all relate to summertime.  Since Ripley and I both adore this special season, we’ll be sure to continue along the hunt path.  Who knows?  Maybe we’ll see you on the trail!  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Celebrating 100

Window Seat

Hello Fabulouses!  Today Ripley and I are celebrating 100 posts with Fabulously Free in SL by curling up in front of a window in one of our favorite places – the library.  It’s the perfect spot to sit and reminisce about the past 9 months of blogging for Fab Free.   Sharing my Fabulous Finds with you, and becoming part of the Fab Free family has been such a wonderful experience.  Thank you so much for reading my posts, and for being so encouraging and positive.  I am truly blessed, and look forward to writing many more blog posts to come!

A Marketplace Find

My summery top and skirt are a recent Marketplace discovery from the BarBarella store.  Priced at only 50L, this complete outfit, called Mona, is designed to fit both standard and mesh bodies alike.  The softly worn denim skirt features a delicate embroidered pattern on the back pockets which coordinates perfectly with the creamy hue of the tank top.  Ideal for a casual day spent exploring SL, this outfit is light and sweetly feminine.  The package also includes strappy sandals, which I didn’t wear for my picture.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Jean Mini Skirt in mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for skirt
  • Strap Tank in Fitted mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Strap Tank in mesh XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank

Good morning FabFree Readers!

It’s that season again…  the season of swimwear, and whether you are a water splasher or a soaker of sun, there is just no reason to wear last years suit.  There are tons out there at your fingertips as free gifts!  I came across a mesh one piecer in a retro curvy cut that I really like and as it is a free group gift, I thought I’d share the news here with all of you.

Everything is going along just swimmingly!

The new group gift for June at MONCLER is the Swimsuit as shown on my avatar today.  This suit not only comes with the sweet flamingo print I am showing off, but also has two other prints included via the 3 option tropical texture change HUD.  The MONCLER group is 50L to join, but there are a few gifts to pick up once you join.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

A Lil Bit of Lace

A Lil' Bit of Lace

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I can’t tell you how excited I was to see the Women Only Hunt 3 started today.  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the trail.  With the pupster’s talented nose, we uncovered two completely free gifts to share with our favorite readers.

Wrapped in Serenity

Our first stop was Petite Mort, where we searched around until we discovered the free hunt item, a coconut shell, tucked carefully away in the shop.  Hidden inside was this stunning, White Serene Lace dress.  A delicately detailed, translucent lace overlay rests on top of a solid white sleeveless frock.  It features a V-shaped back, a fitted bodice, and a skirt that falls to mid-thigh length.  Depending on how you accessorize your outfit, this beauty would be perfect for a casual outing or a night on the town.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Add Some Glitzz

Our second stop as ace detectives was the Glitzz Mainstore.  I have to be honest here…..maybe I should have tucked some extra Ripley snacks in my pocket before leaving to motivate a certain canine someone.  We spent quite a long time roaming up and down the aisles, hunting high and low before we finally located the tropical seed concealed in the shop.  I was almost ready to give up, but we persevered, and I’m so glad we did!  The free white and yellow Flower Sun Hat coordinated perfectly with my new dress, and provided just the right amount of glam and sun protection for our outing to the Isle of Love sim.  The head wear comes complete with built in resizer, so in no time at all, I was able to adjust the hat to fit perfectly over my hair.  Score for team Ripley!  The hat has a realistic woven texture, and is perfectly adorned with a trio of yellow roses and a touch of greenery for added flair.

So Many More Prizes Out There

These are just two of the free hunt gifts awaiting discovery in the Women Only Hunt 3, which runs until June 24th.  You can see a preview of the hunt gifts on the hunt information page.  There’s also some handy hints in case you don’t have your very own tracking companion to assist you.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

She’s so Foxy!

Foxy Lady
Hello Fabulouses!  While browsing on the Marketplace, I found a foxy mini dress to share with you,  and Ripley even sniffed out a skulk of foxes to snap a photo with.  Yup, oddly enough, a group of foxes really are called a “skulk” or a “leash”……..I had to look that one up!  For only 50L, I snatched up the “Eve” dress from Yeliz.  With an amazing color/texture change HUD, the sky’s the limit with this sexy mini.  There are 35 different textures and 31 colors to choose from.  It has delicate shoulders straps, a deeply scooped back, and the cutest little cut out in the front.  Perfect for date night, or a casual day of shopping, this frock would make a lovely addition to your inventory.  As you can see from the list below, the Eve dress is designed to fit a wide range of avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Belleza Venus
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
