Join the R3VOLT
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m honestly not sure how this group gift, or gifts I should say, at R3VOLT escaped me for so long. As the name might suggest, R3VOLT specializes in mostly urban style casual clothing. Right now there is a wall full of FREE group gifts available to all R3VOLT  VIP group members. Even better, there are gifts for the guys as well as the gifts for the ladies! The R3VOLT group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Personally, I think the fee is worth it just for the number of gifts currently available. I’ve added a photo of the wall-o-gifts below.

I thought this hi-lo tank top at R3VOLT was really cute, and perfect now that the weather is starting to warm up down here in the south. What makes this great gift fabulous is the texture change hud. I love when clothing has this feature. The Carly top includes a hud with 15 textures (10 prints and 5 solids), standard mesh sizes, and matching alpha layers for classic avatars. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

~Traditional Gaelic Blessing

 Kiss Me, I’m (Really) Irish

I know, Carson already said that. But I’m saying it, too. 😉

My grandmother was 100% Irish, and it was her grandparents who immigrated from Ireland during the potato famine years. I grew up hearing plenty of Irish quotes and sayings, my favorite of which was, “May you be in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you’re dead.” I’m not exactly sure how that works, but to this day, I still hope I can do it! 😀

But hey, enough of my family history… on to the free stuff!

Let’s Get This Party Started!

This sexy, little dress is a free subscriber gift from Nerido. No group space is required; just hit the subscriber button and wait for your gift. I’ll admit that it actually took several hours to receive mine – I don’t know if this was an SL glitch or just a slow delivery system. But if you don’t receive your gift right away, just be patient.

The dress comes in this cute shamrock and horseshoe design, as well as a solid green version, and is sized for:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Wearing of (More) Green

I kind of picked up these shoes by accident. I was hopping around the grid looking for something festive to wear and found myself at Precious Designs. Apparently, I clicked on a Mini Mania board because the shoes showed up in my inventory a few hours later – yay! They are sized to fit Slink High Feet only, but they do come with a 10-color texture change HUD, making them super versatile.

Note: the Mini Mania boards at Precious Designs change, and these particular shoes were not available when I went back today to take a look. But the shoes that were available are just as cute, so be sure to hit the board anyway.

My earrings and bracelets are by Heartsdale Jewellery as a free group gift for The Weekly Limited. Again, finding them was a bit of an accident. I had dropped in at the store to look for a different gift and found the pretty Green Goddess set instead (there is also a matching choker). Must be the luck of the Irish! 😀

Last but not least, my shamrock glasses are a free gift from Boutique 187. No group is required; just pay the 0L. Touch the glasses to activate the resizer.

Enjoy the rest of your St. Patrick’s Day! Sláinte mhaith!

On the Tip of My Nose

Dragonfly

Oh my goodness, wasn’t it Monday just a few minutes ago? I feel as if I’ve lost a day somewhere… must be the change to Daylight Savings Time that’s messing with me. I’m happy that it stays light for longer now, but getting up in the dark is really hard! :/

Happy Birthday, TLC!

As Sheidey mentioned, The Liaison Collaborative (TLC) is saying “Hello Spring!” this month, as well as celebrating its own 4th birthday. And many of the participating designers are giving presents to us! No need to join any group; just click on the boxes to receive your gifts.

I picked up this adorable Shifty Spring dress from the Neve booth, and I really love it. It comes with a 4-color HUD and is available in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-M with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Accessorize!

This pretty, triple-decker bracelet was a TLC gift from Have Unequal . The Pandora Bracelet comes in silver and white and is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Oh! And as I was heading out on my morning walk, this sweet, little dragonfly landed right on my nose! 😄

Ok, not really. I actually got it from the Les Sucreries De Fairy booth at TLC, which is a whole lot easier than waiting for one to land on your nose. My little guy is purple, but in the box, you’ll find his buddies in blue, orange, pink, and rainbow.

The 4th birthday round of The Liaison Collaborative will be open until 30 March, so SPRING on over to pick up the fabulous gifts (see what I did there?)! 😀

Say, “Cheese!

Say "Cheese!"

After a week of having no cell phone, I was so excited to get my replacement phone in the mail today! In fact, I’ve been running around taking pictures with it all day… and making a bit of a nuisance of myself, I think. I’m still sad that I lost a bunch of photos that I neglected to back up, but I guess some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. Hopefully, the 99 cents a month that I’ve decided to fork over to upgrade my iCloud account will keep this from happening in the future. 😛

Ok, enough babbling about my sad phone story.

Sweater Weather

This cute skirt and sweater combo is the March group gift from RiR Life. I love the detailed texture of the sweater; it’s romantic and sporty and perfect for those late winter/early spring days when you still need a little warmth. The outfit comes as one piece and is sized for:

  • Standard Classic Avatar (one size)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Smile!

I found this cute selfie pose by Mirukuti on the Marketplace for just 5L. It does not come with a phone prop, so I used the one that came with my Vista Animations Miriam AO. I’m sure any phone prop would work fine, though.

Thank goodness these deer are being so patient with me. Cheese! 😀

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

nc5_001f

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! And what a crazy, bizarre week this has been! The “highlight” of my week was accidentally tossing my cell phone in the washer with a load of laundry. GAAAH! My poor baby is dead, but at least she smells good. 😥

To cheer myself up, I grabbed Finn and headed over to Summer Trace for a relaxing walk in the sun. Finn had a grand old time chasing the birds (which she never caught), and I enjoyed the pretty flowers and ocean breeze. Ahhhh.

Dressed Up to the Eyes

My dress is the latest Fab Free group gift from No Cabide. The Jayne Mini Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP

You also get an amazing texture-change HUD which includes 10 dress fabrics, as well as 10 strap textures. To grab your gift, activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag and pop on over to No Cabide.

To See Your Shoes and Your Spirits Rise

Continuing my Friday theme… my cute flats happen to be from fri.day! The Bebe Flats (in peachy) are only 50L today for Fifty Linden Friday and are sized for Slink and Maitreya mesh feet. I love the detailed stitching and pretty, feminine bows. 🙂

While you are there, be sure to have a look around the store. Fri.day is having their Semi-Annual Sale from March 3-10, and everything in the store is 50% off (excluding gachas and gift cards). This is a great time to stock up on shoes for spring!

Here’s to a calm, stress-free weekend! 😎

Kiss Me, Baby

Kiss Me, Baby

Pucker Up

If you are a wearer of LeLutka mesh heads, you will want to hustle over to Laura Hurley to pick up this gorgeous applier. Kay comes in the milky tone and with glittery, pink eyeshadow, high-gloss lipstick, and a light sprinkling of freckles and beauty marks. She is a really pretty face, and I love the intense lips. ❤ ❤

I am wearing Kay on my Simone 2.6 Bento head, and I did not have to mod my shape much at all to achieve a look that I liked. I did notice a teensy, shadowy line above the upper lip, which did not appear until I turned on atmospheric shaders to take this photo. It was less noticeable on my non-Bento Karin head, so perhaps my shape was the culprit. :/

The Lara Hurley group is free to join – with many lovely gifts offered throughout the year – so be sure to stop by and give Kay a try.

XOXO

My lingerie – what you can see of it – is part of the very generous Valentine’s Day group gift from Foxes. I am wearing the crop top and bottoms, but there is also an uber-sexy bra and panty set included. Both sets come in three different fabrics and are sized for Maitreya mesh bodies. A HUD is included so you can change the color of the bows and lace.

My necklace is from Amala for Fifty Linden Friday, and as of this writing, it is still available for 50L. The Scarlett Necklace comes with diamonds and a HUD with 4 metal colors included. The Deluxe HUD is also available for 50L and includes 10 additional pearl colors. NOTE: the Deluxe HUD does NOT include the necklace, so be sure you pick that one up first!

Home Alone

Close to You

Hey, fabulous readers! I’m happy to be back after a hectic RL out-of-state business trip, and I have some lovely gifts to share with you. ❤

All Dressed Up… And No Place to Go

I’ll be honest: Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. Unlike Love and Carson, my significant other had to work late, and I wound up spending the evening alone. But hey, at least I looked good in this sexy number from Ghee. The Rose Lace Dress is their latest group gift, and includes not only the dress, but also the cute, flat pumps.

The dress comes with a 4-color texture HUD to change the dress color, as well as the lace overlay. The shoes have a HUD which includes the same 4 colors, as well as 6 colors for the toe cap.

Dress sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Shoe sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For a little “bling,” I added the newest group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., the My Heart Platinum Set, which includes a necklace and earrings. All are resizeable; just touch for the menu.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

My guy may have left me on my own for the evening, but at least he remembered to send me a box of my favorite cookies. And he paid my favorite price – free – leaving him with more money to take me somewhere nice on the weekend. The Happy Valentines Flowered Heart Macaroons are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Aphrodite Shop. The box opens and closes on touch, and offers as many delicious cookies as you can eat.

Thank goodness I can eat whatever I want in SL without gaining a pound… unlike RL, where I really need to lay off the salted caramels… DOH! 😳

We Could Be Royals

We Could Be Royals

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II may be my 10th cousin (twice removed), but I certainly don’t expect to be invited to the Palace for tea anytime soon.

Or ever.

But that certainly won’t keep me from having a royal fantasy in SL, especially when I can find such amazingly “luxe” items as these for free! 😀

Let Me Live That Fantasy

I started my royal fantasy with this gorgeous gown that I picked up as a free group gift at the ULTRA Event. Designed by Snowpaws, this silky dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It has the big bow you see here on the front, as well as a petite bow and flexi-attachment-train in the back that goes swish-swish when you walk (not literally, of course). Both are detachable if you’d prefer a sleek, sexy look.

Head over to the ULTRA Event and join the free group to pick up ALL the gifts before the event closes on February 15th. More Fab Free posts about ULTRA:

 

We Could Be Royals

I’m In Love With Being Queen

Love and I were definitely on the same wavelength today because I also stopped by The Free Dove. I was looking for some jewelry to go with my gown and ran across this delicate pearl set called “Your Majesty” by new-to-me designer ~TEMPESTUOUS~.

But what really caught my eye was the matching free crown. A FREE CROWN! Who doesn’t need one of those, am I right? I, for one, absolutely needed one, for no reason other that it’s a crown. And free. And… hellooooo, FREE CROWN, LOL!

Anyway… the FREE CROWN is no-mod, but it does come with a resizer. Simply touch the crown, and when the blue box pops up, select “All Prims.” I only mention this because I accidentally selected “This Prim,” and… oops. Thankfully, I figured out what I had done before I made too much of a mess.

Well now, according to my diamond timepiece, it’s time for this royal to drive Cadillacs in her dreams and walk her tiger on a gold leash. 😉

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning I was determined to shake it off Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! 😉

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Très Joli dress from The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Très Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

In the Shadows

Shi x Messiah

 

The Neckwarmer-man

Is he a guardian angel or one to be guarded against? He’s a masked scarfed man who roams the lonely and deserted streets.  Who is he? Where did he come from? and why does he cover his face? All we know about his is that he shops at .Shi x Messiah. The Fedora he is wearing is a FREE group gift as is the Neckwarmer and Tankbag. All these items are unisex and the group is FREE to join, so don’t be surprised if we see his sidekick, Neckwarmer-Girl  lurking about.

Keeping a Watchful Eye…

It’s crime-fighting time… at least that’s what time the FREE group gift Watch from Prey is saying.  He is also wearing a Vintage Shirt by <T> Roxidus, that can be found at the Menstuff Lounge. All gifts are free to Menstuff members, but there is a $50L joining fee. I’m also guessing that he stopped by the Wash Cart Sale in his secret identity as a mild-mannered blogger and bought the Star 69 Work Pants for just $10L at the Dark Water Designs cart. The Wash Cart Sale is open until January 4th, so hurry on down before it closes.

Tune in next week to see Neckwarmer-man battle EarMuff Girl.
