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.

Winter Kissed

Snapshot_004
Hi there Fabulouses! I was meaning to get this post up yesterday, but Monday got the best of me… so I’m sneaking on to show you a couple of things over my lunch hour today.

Put on a holiday sweater…

I stopped in at trs recently to see what was new there, and noticed that there are a couple of free holiday group gifts to pick up when you join their free inworld group.  One of the gifts is this gorgeous fitted winter sweater.  I love the deep green and red used on the texture as it gives it a more classic feel, and the reindeers are pretty cute ;).

Sizes included:

  • Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

Why are my cheeks so rosy?

My red nose and winter kissed cheeks are courtesy of Nanika as I picked up their Frosty Blush Catwa Applier as a free ON9 group gift at this round of ON9.  This particular round of ON9 has free group gifts in almost every display (little gold presents), and the group is free to join too which makes it a great stop for freebie hunting a there are LOADS!

Back to work for me – enjoy your day!

Too Much Red in the Champagne Room

Prism DesignsPOE9

 

As I was following the holiday cheer on the Peace on Earth Hunt 9, I came across a wonderful Christmas Outfit for the gents.  The FREE hunt gift at Prism for Men is this beautiful and comfy mesh red high neck sweater and pants set. The outfit comes in the standard sizes XS-XL with alphas included. The shoes are from the Owen Outfit I showed earlier from ALTER, which is also a FREE hunt gift on the Peace on Earth Hunt 9.

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Massage Therapy

Rose Marine & POLO PAUL- Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals -free gift

Getting the kinks worked out…

Writing these posts are hard work… Teleporting all over the place to find great freebie finds for all of you can leave me sore and tense. Good thing my latest find was perfect for that afternoon massage. At Rose Marine & Polo Paul I found the Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals for FREE! No group join, just click the gift and receive. It’s that simple. The yoga pants come in the standard sizes XS-XL, and the sandals are great for just hanging around your skybox or estate.

Towel me more…

Also included with this gift is a mesh towel with AO and mesh nerd glasses. I prefer to call them my Superman shades. 🙂

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.
