Free as a Wren (err…Bird)

Free as a Bird
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am so excited to join the Fab Free team!  I’ve been a long time Fab Free member, and it is a dream come true to blog for all of you.  I’m looking forward to sharing my fashion finds as I journey around the grid, so without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Birds of a Feather…

I don’t know about you, but I love it when I head to a store to pick up an item and just happen to spot another gift that I knew nothing about ahead of time.  It’s definitely a welcome added bonus!  That happened to me the other day when I followed Aline’s advice in her post here, and stopped by Ewa Boutique to pick up their latest Fab Free group gift.  Right away, I noticed the sleek Aghata dress vendor on the wall.  All I had to do was change my group tag to the FitMesh Fanatics group, tap the board, and pay zero Linden dollars …. easy peasy!  Since the group is free to join, my budget was just as thrilled as I was with my discovery.  This strapless frock hugs my curves and allows my shoulders to soak up some late summer sunshine.  The gift includes adorable lacing and ties on the sleeves, a texture change HUD, and a coordinating pair of Valkire heels.  If red is not up your alley, you have 11 other hues to select from.  I’m sure you will love this dress as much as I do!

Sizes/Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • EBody

Until next time,

La Route du Soleil

La Route du Soleil

I’m having visions of the South of France again.  Days spent driving down the N7 highway, listening to French pop music, the wind in your hair and the promise of a good meal when you reach your destination. I spent a large chunk of my early years sitting in the back of a Renault Clio staring out the windows at the giant sunflower fields basking in the sun, wishing I could be running through the rows instead of just looking at them on the way to a castle.  To be fair, the castle was always great too, but running through a field of sunflowers can never go wrong.

Cosmo Finds

I mentioned the other day that Cosmopolitan had a second round of anniversary celebrations, and this round had so many nice gifts that I really wanted to show you a few more of my faves.  The Cosmopolitan group is free to join!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE shirt by Loki sized for Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Seniha sized for Belleza, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE pose by Le Poppycock

Don’t forget, this round of Cosmopolitan runs until May 29th!

I think this calls for a picnic in the champ de tournesols!

Guilty Pleasures

Guilty Pleasure

Hello Fab Free! If you’ve ever seen the movie Ocean’s Eleven you’re familiar with Brad Pitt’s character in the film and the fact that he always had snacks. I find that very relatable. lol Thankfully Second Life makes it so easy to be indulgent. Today I got to indulge my fondness for food, and fashion.

Le Poppycock

This delicious looking pink drink and the corresponding bento pose are one of the many gachas from the “Guilty Pleasures” gacha set by Le Poppycock currently featured at The Pose Fair. These gacha poses are all various sweets and savory treats that I couldn’t resist spending a few lindens on. This Le Poppycock gacha is just 69 lindens per play, and since they are transferrable you can trade them. The Pose Fair is open until September 28th. Also, don’t forget there are free Pose Fair group gifts!
New at Pose Fair!

Afrotay

Now for the fashion! This cute red dress is a free group gift by Afrotay. I couldn’t resist the stylized snake graphic. I think it’s so interesting and unique. I also really like the way the shoulder straps come together in the back, and I am wishing I’d taken a photo of it to share with you. The dress comes in a pretty bright yellow color as well as this vibrant red. The Afrotay group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Wake me up

FabFree Post: Wake me up

Wake me up inside

And after typing out “wake me up inside” all I can think about is “wake me up when September ends” *you are so welcome* because I am super excited for all the pretty fall colors mixed with the end of summer green! Fall has to be my second favorite season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pie, Freshly Baked Cookies, Festivals, Falling Leaves, and so much more puts this season on top just under Spring. The days become shorter, the nights become colder, snuggling under a blanket watching movies, warm fuzzy socks.. all highlights of a typical Bunnie Fall.

Early last week BackBone gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming free group gift, I had to very patiently wait until it was released, and let me tell you, this GLORIOUS Warrior is my new favorite decor item, hands down! The detail on the statue alone made my jaw hit the floor. I know L$500 is a hit but if you think about all the past free group gifts you can snag while there it makes the cost small in comparison. It comes with the ability to turn the water sounds up or down, which is amazing because I love the sound sometimes but when I’m working it could be slightly distracting to me.
Then again that could just be a “me” thing.

Belle Epoque has put out a very inspiring dress for 25LT Sale (sale prices only good for Tuesday 9/15) coming in 8 colors for L$25 each with options for short and long. Both dress styles of the dress are classic and could be used for RP or even a new age shot because we all know vintage looks come back over and over again 🙂 So soon we will all be using standard avatars again ❤ JK!

Fits:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

Pink Perfection!

Pink Perfection

Oh my Stars, FabFree! have you been to UBER yet? SO.MANY.GIFTS! I actually had a hard time deciding which cute thing to show off. I know, I know it’s a great problem to have. Then I opened the gifts from Mimikri and Osmia and I knew what I was blogging. I mean, how could I resist a pink bikini with studs???

Itsy Bitsy

Hooleee Crow! Would you look at this itsy bitsy bikini? Pink and tiny and studs, be still my heart. This is the ‘Celeste Bikini’ from Mimikri and it’s free at Uber. I don’t have a whole lot of items from Mimikri in my closet but man, I gotta change that. This little whisper of a swim suit is so perfectly done. Every detail is spot on and I am in love. Plus… it’s free!

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLInk – Hourglass, Physique

Up Top

Another super cute free gift at Uber comes from Osmia. This ‘Aria Bucket Hat’ (My people always called this style a ‘boonie hat’) comes with a HUD for choices of cute colors. Doesn’t this pink look like it was just made for the bikini?! Again, it’s really well done and I love it to pieces!

UBER runs until September 22 which is coming faster than ya think, so get over there and load up!

Roan Inish

Hello hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs. I hope you’ve been enjoying yours. As for me, it’s been a productive sort of quiet weekend and I’m not at all mad about it. Even more, I’m excited to share with you some pretty summery finds from Dead Doll and Sweet Evil. On a side note, bonus points if you’re familiar with the movie from which I got my blog title, and the relation to the seals.

Dead Doll 

This pretty sarong-like tropical print skirt is a free group gift at Dead Doll. It has a color change hud with several color choices and you can color the skirt and the tie separately. Right now the Dead Doll group has a one-time join fee of 250 linden. I think this cute summer skirt is perfect for dressing up and wearing out or even on it’s own at the beach with a bikini.

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Sweet Evil has a dollarbie gift card worth 250 linden for current group members. The Sweet Evil group is free to join. I have no idea how long this gift card will be available, so definite do not wait to pick it up. With my gift card I picked out this cute halter style top and after using my 250 linden gift card only paid 50 linden for the top. I think it went well with the skirt, and it has a tinting hud so you can tint the shirt to match just about anything with the choice of tinting the main part of the shirt and the straps separately. There are lots of things to choose from at Sweet Evil, including BOM items. Just a note of caution, if you’re at all bothered by bare breasts, you might skip this one. Many of the tops sold at Sweet Evil have breasts playfully exposed.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

We’ll get there fast, then we’ll take it slow

we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow

**humming some old Beach Boys**

Hey FabFree! What’s better at the start of the week than some tropical vibes, a few rum spiked adult beverages and some awesome free gifts? Not much!!

First, a bit of confession, Sweet Willows says this outfit is a mini dress… And usually what the designer says goes. But this little cutie makes me have all the swimsuit feels. But hey, that’s the glory of the Grid… it is what we want it to be. So… anyway. I love this little set. It’s so cute and it’s really really beautifully made. Plus it comes with a HUD to change each piece to one of five color choices.  Oh, one more confession… I did have to edit the picture a bit. The skirt… is really a mini and… well, let’s just say, wear your nicest panties, girls.

Oh, I almost forgot… This adorable set… all free for the lucky members of our own Fabulously Free Group!

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Beleeza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP

OH,  I almost REALLY forgot… When you wear your FabFree Group tag at Sweet Willows… you get 50% OFF the regular price for any item! How’s that for Fabulous?!
