Beautiful Morning

Lisbon_007

Hey fab fam!

You know that feeling when the air is a bit cool, but warmer days are coming so the sun feels toasty warm?  Don’t you just lurrrrrve that feeling?  And when the sun is coming in and the floor gets warm and you are barefoot and it feel soooo soothing on your feet and toesy-woesies?  ahhhhhhh.  I wish I was feeling that right now!  As life would have it at the moment I am chilled and trying to get warm!  I literally put on a big fluffy sweater, the fingerless gloves that I absolutely love, and my unicorn hat.  Yes, I have a unicorn hat, so I am a unicorn writing a blog right now.  Who says we don’t exist (INFP= sparkly unicorns!)??

Aline and I sometimes wonder if anyone actually *reads* these posts… we are not sure anyone does.  Yet we babble away into the unknown, just in case someone *does* actually read it (if you do, please let us know in the comments!  We would love to know someone reads our silly drivel!), but we have our doubts that many do.  Y’all are just sneaking in to see pics, grab links and RUN arencha????  sneaky little shoppers  😉

While we are on that subject, let me tell you about this sexy little number I’m wearing today… I found this in the Kings & Queens Hunt for just 1L, and the hunt runs til the end of the month!  It is from PinkFunk and is totally cute.  It is also what I call a “boob-dangle” meaning your boob is dangling out in the open (since this blog is PG-13 I have strategically tucked my dangling boob under my hair) (and how many times do you think I can use the word boob and dangle together in one blog post?????  See, if you aren’t reading these posts through, you miss all the fun!).   Just one of the many styles that are popular in second life, that if you walked around like that in real life you would get arrested, or worse!  Like, “Oops!  Oh I’ll just leave it hanging out!”

So, this cute little number, with air conditioning for the girls on one side only fits Maitreya.  But for one linden, you can’t beat that with a stick!

More soon chickadees and …. Roosteradees?

Hanging Around

bird pic_006 (4)

Hey FabFree! How’s it goin’?  I’m just hanging out and enjoying all the awesome goodies I found last weekend! I have a lot of freebies and group gifts to share with you today so I am going to jump straight in! 

Goodies @ The Gacha Garden

You can pick up a few gifts at this round of The Gacha Garden and I am showing a few here, including:

  • Free BOM stockings in Purple, Black and Brown from Morbid Mausoleum
  • Free heart earrings and glasses from No Cabide. This is the same gift that Aline blogged yesterday; you can pick them up at both events for free!
  • The table next to me is also a free gift at The Gacha Garden! The table comes in several options, and options to use the table with or without the candelabra, goblet and yummy chocolates on it.

There are a few gifts around the sim, so enjoy all the free gifts this round has to offer! You just need to join the free Bellatech group and the join code for that group is here:

secondlife:///app/group/6e91adfd-133d-784d-a747-ab3df758660d/about

Gachas!

I also had the chance to play some fun gachas at The Gacha Garden. Most of my outfit, including the dress, boots, the skull headband, the backpack and the cat handbag are all part of the Gothic Lolita Gacha by MOoH! Each play is 50L a try, and you can see the gacha key below of everything available on the gacha. When you play 20 times you will receive the heart choker for free, and I just love the cute little skull choker too!

Dress & Boots Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

The Gacha Garden ends on May 31st, so go check this great event out before the end of this month!

More gifties!

I also am wearing a couple more group gifts from around the grid to create this look.

  • The cute heart animation on my chest is the latest group gift at LuluB. The LuluB group costs  150L to join, and this gift is adorable! The little heart moves around and flashes lights and sits on your chest.
  • My gorgeous lipstick is the latest group gift at Trend. The pack comes with 12 colours, with appliers for Lelutka Evo and Origin, Catwa HD and Pro, and Genus heads. The Trend group currently costs 250L to join.
  • My gorgeous auburn eyes are a group gift at Avi-Glam. The Avi-Glam group costs 10 L to join and they have a number of beautiful eyes available in their group. These eyes come in appliers for Catwa, Lelutka Evo, Genus, and BOM/system layers and omega appliers.
  • My skin- called Lotte – is a camper chair prize at 7 Deadly S[K]ins which you can get if you camp on a chair for 50 minutes. This offer is available for group members of 7 Deadly S[K]ins , and their group currently costs 295L to join. This skin is a BOM skin designed for Lelutka Evo heads. 
  • Finally, this adorable hair is a free gift from {Limerence} over at the current anniversary round of FaMESHed, and it comes in a number of cute pastel colours! The FaMESHed group is free to join. Make sure you go back to Aline’s post here to see more gifts you can get at the FaMESHed anniversary. FaMESHed ends on May 27th so you still have some time to collect all the gifties!

Enjoy, FabFree!

I Dream of Granita

I Dream of Granita

I’m right in the frame of mind where I’m ready to be on summer vacation.  My brain has filled with visions of light fabrics, sunny skies, scudding clouds and a nice lemon granita.  The summer always brings a nice sense of calm, and the thought of shoveling snow or -30 windchill is nowt but a distant memory.  Time to do some basking!

The Price is Right

Over at Poème right now you’ll find this absolutely perfect summer dress priced for just 75L for a limited time.  There are a bunch of lovely different textures to choose from, so if you black and white isn’t your thing, you’re sure to find something else that delights just as much.  You can also change the belt to black if you’d prefer!  Again, this deal won’t be around forever, so don’t wait too long!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

I’ll take that granita now!

Mooo!

Mooo!
Apparently cows are in now.  It’s a thing that I never thought I’d actually see, I guess, but apparently it’s happened.  The closest to cow patterns I ever got in my *ahem* youth, was the cow print chupa chups that were all the rage.  Also, let me just go on a rant about Spice Girls chupa chups, because I was all over that scene.  Wait, how did I get here again?  I don’t know, but… mooo! – I’m a cow for now!

A Shot of Saki

It’s time for yet another event filled with gifts!  I never tire of the generosity, and I love opening presents.  The Saki event is a fun little event full of colourful things, and there’s a free gift (no group join required) at every booth.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Shirt by Reed sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Physique & Venus
  • FREE Skirt by Angel Pink sized for Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine & Venus
  • FREE Glasses by No Cabide with matching earrings in the box

Don’t wait too long, I coudn’t find any info about when the event ends, so nip over there ASAP!

500L in Credit from Blueberry!

Oh hey, it’s me again!  I’ve got awesome news from Blueberry!  Let’s get down to the details!

Happy Birthday!

We’re at 9 years of Blueberry goodness, and to celebrate, there’s lots going on!  For the next 5 days the whole store is 50% off!  Yessss!  Oh but wait, that’s not the super exciting part – you’ll find that if you join the Blueberry group for 20L, you’ll find a gift card for 500L of store credit in group notices!  Woohoo!  I picked up all sorts with my gift, including the pants and top I’ve got on that only set me back 125L on that credit each.  You’ll want to try your best to get in in the next 5 days to be able to get the 50% off.  If you can’t get in to the main location, you can also cam shop from HERE.  Oh, and be careful, you have two weeks to use the store credit from the moment the card is activated, so be sure you’re honed in on exactly what your heart desires.

Wrapping up the Weekend

Wrapping Up the Weekend

Ok since I missed so much of my weekend sleeping (hey, a girl has got to get her beauty rest now and then, right?) I’m making up for it with a bit of fun.  I want to head out into the world and just experience SL’s madness in all it’s glory.  Who doesn’t like a smattering of bright colours, funny drinks, a dance or two…and of course, freebies!

You’re so Vain

The latest round of Vanity has taken off, and you’ll find that there are two free group gifts for members of of the free-to-join group.  You’ll find two whole fatpacks of cute outfits for you to sink your teeth into by Scandalize.  I chose the Aelma outfit that comes with the top, skirt and shoes, and a rather extensive HUD to mix and match colours to your heart’s content.  Don’t wait too long, this round of Vanity is only running until May 25th.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy Perky

Bring on the madness!

On the Mend

On the Mend

Heya FabFree!  I’m feeling a bit under the weather the last few days, so I’ve been a bit quiet.  Though I’m coming around the bend of my ickiness, some cute group gifts will surely make me feel even better!

Dress it Up

There’s a new group gift over at Rosary!  This cute summery dress has been updated recently with some new sizes, so it may just be what you need for your summer wardrobe.  The Rosary group is currently 350L to Join, but you’ll get a new group gift really often and it’s always something fun!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Pink Time!

There’s also a new group gift over at Pink Cream Pie – these cool heels that snake pleasingly up your leg.  They come with an HUD to change to several different pretty colours, so you’re sure to find a hue you like.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join, which is totally worth it because you’ll get a new group gift every single month, and there are a few of them out in the store right now (you’ll find them upstairs in the VIP lounge!)

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Have a great weekend, FabFree!

Springtime Swoon

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely *love* all the pastel colors that show up in the Spring!  They just make me swoon!  It’s the Springtime Swoon!  That’s like being twitterpated but you do it over the colors, the clothes, the hair, the makeup, the flowers, the decor, the freaking everything!!!!  I mean, I got an amazon gift card yesterday and I went all crazy about some pastel colored pens for my Bujo!  Just so refreshing and bright and cheery!  Can you tell I am not much of a winter time gal?  😉

But!  I do digress!  (Picture it, Sicily, 1920….)  I have some amazing goodies for you today!  This adorable outfit I am wearing comes to you from our Fab Free Designer Phoebe ~Piercings & more~.  It is a MIIX Weekend Sale item, the top and bottom are 55L each and they come with a HUD that has pinstripes (so sassy and classy!) in every color your heart desires 20 choices!)!  That’s this weekend, as in *right now* so run and do grab!  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Standar (Classic Avatar M size)
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Voluptuous

The shoes I found on marketplace for a mere 50L and they are gorgeous!  They are from ROC, and they come with a HUD that has 25 color choices so these match *everything*!  They fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Now for those of you who are Mom’s, any kind of Mom (humans or furbabies!!) I wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day!  Those of you who are missing your Mom’s (like me) for whatever reason, I send you big hugs!!!

I got really lucky when I visited Lunaria and discovered their lucky boards, which are filled with all sorts of wonderful free goodness!  Not only do they have clothing on the lucky boards, but they have some gorgeous trees and landscaping on the Midnight Mania (only needs to hit 15!).  Imagine my delight when I tried on my outfit and it came with fairy wings!  Holy Moly man!  Score!  You can see the outfit in its entirety below:

It fits:

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XS-L

Oh and that group for the lucky boards and Midnight Mania?  Free!  (they have some gorgeous free goodies in the group gifts wall which is right next to the other boards!)I think you definitely need to grab some Friday goodies, my friends!

Keeping Busy

Keeping Busy

There are swathes of time in SL where suddenly there’s a lot going on.  We seem to be heading into one of those chunks of time, where so many different events are celebrating anniversaries, and then deciding to spoil us all because of it!  I’m definitely not one to complain about that.

Happy Bday Cosmo!

It’s time to celebrate Cosmopolitan’s 9th anniversary!  This staple event always has something awesome to pick up, and this round is filled to the gills with free gifts.  To get them, join the free Cosmopolitan group, then click on all the little crates at each stall.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Dress by Mondial sized for Legacy, Freya, Hourglass & Maitreya
  • FREE Glasses by ZK store
  • FREE Hair by Limerence in several pastel hues
  • FREE Makeup from Poema with BOM layers, and Omega and Catwa appliers
