What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers!¬†:/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. ūüôā

Another Flower Child

Flower Child

Happy weekend, fabulous readers (or, what’s left of it, anyway)!

I think Kathryn and I were on the same Bohemian wavelength, with both of us choosing casual denim and flowers in our hair! My dog, Finn, has been off chasing birds somewhere… hopefully she hasn’t caused any damage while I was taking a nap in my van.¬†ūüôĄ

Causal in Denim

My summery, denim dress is just the latest group gift from Maci. It sports a sexy, tied halter back, quite a bit of cleavage, and is sized to fit the following:

  • Classic mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya (regular and autohide)
  • Slink
  • TMP

My necklace is the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer. It comes in 3 style combinations with 10 different colors for the stones. Click on the necklace to bring up a menu for changing the texture or resizing.

Ah well… naptime is over. Until next time!

I’ve Got the Music in Me

I've Got the Music in Me

A Retro Vibe

Sometimes the perfect outfit feels just as good a listening to your favorite song. And that’s exactly how I feel in this beautiful, vintage dress from Ghee!

The Polkadot Halter Dress comes with a 4-color texture-change HUD and is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, as well as standard mesh XXS-L with an alpha. I think the pretty orchid corsage really pulls the whole outfit together. ūüôā

My earrings are the latest group gift from CHAIN. I neglected to get a close-up photo (you can click the photo to enlarge on Flickr), but I can tell you that they are pretty hoops, and they come with a HUD that includes 8 metal textures. When I first put them on they were quite large, but if you click the earrings, you’ll get a resizer menu to make them smaller.

To Tell the Truth

Like many of you, I have an inventory full of hair, and I just can’t bring myself to delete any of it. Though it’s an older style, I put on the Sassy 2¬†‘do from TRUTH HAIR because I thought the classic look¬†would go well with my dress.

I decided to pop over to the TRUTH main store to see if the style is even still available, and guess what? Not only is it available, but it is only 50L in the discount room! That’s right: there’s an entire room full of hairs that are just 50L each. Be sure to stop by and take a look; it’s a great place to pick up some really well-made hair at a very reasonable price.

Have a fabulous rest of your day! ūüėÄ

Let’s Play

Let's Play

Happy Birthday, Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic event is celebrating its 2nd anniversary this month, and all of the gifts are for YOU! You do need to join the Tres Chic in-world group, but it is free to join, and there are SO MANY awesome gifts!

So let’s get started!¬†ūüėÄ

The Skin

First off, how gorgeous is this skin?¬†It’s a different look for me,¬†but when I tried it on, I thought it was so beautiful that I just had to share it with you.

The skin applier is the Tres Chic anniversary gift from PUMEC.¬†It comes in this one tone¬†and is for LeLutka mesh heads. AND… not only do you get the head applier, but you also get body appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega mesh bodies, system skin appliers, and Vista/Omega hand appliers. All of the body appliers include an option for “push-up,” if you’d like a little extra cleavage. ūüėČ

The Hair

My hair is the Tres Chic gift from DeLa. It comes in fitted and regular mesh versions, and both have a materials option. A HUD with 18 different colors is included, and there is even a version for the fellas.

The Accessories

I fell in love with this CatchMe! necklace by E-Clipse as soon as I tried it on. It reminds me of a cross between an Irish Claddagh and a Game of Thrones Hand of the King pin. ūüôā A texture-change HUD containing 3 metal colors and 8 different stones is included.

Another Tres Chic gift is my Infinity Ring from Ec.cloth, which comes in versions for both Maitreya and Vista Bento hands. And yes, you get a texture-change HUD with this one too Р4 different metals are included.

Let's Play

But wait, there’s more!

The Glasses

Though you may not be able to see them very well, I’m actually wearing a pair of really pretty sunglasses in this picture. Petite Mort set out the Gold Lennon Round Specs¬†as their Tres Chic¬†anniversary gift. The lenses are just dark enough to add a bit of mystery and style to any outfit. There is no resizer, but you can edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

The Dress

Last, but definitely not least, is this super sexy linen dress from POSIE. The Alaia dress comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. It is nicely textured and really hugs your curves in all the right places.

Head Over to Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round ends on June 5th, so don’t delay. There are still lots of people there, so wearing your “low lag” attire is advised (I wore a full body alpha like a ghost). ūüėČ

Zoltar Speaks

Zoltar Speaks

Went to the Fortune Teller

I popped over to New Brighton¬†yesterday to hang out on the pier for a while, and among the rides and arcade games, I found this Zoltar Cat machine. I thought it would be fun to see what Zoltar Cat had to say about my future, so I gave him a click. Perhaps he was just messing with me – or maybe he was offended by the doggies on my handbag and shirt – but he kept insisting that I needed more cats in my life. Here’s a sample:

[13:29] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: I am the great Zoltar Cat, I will tell your fortune!
[13:29] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: You will be meeting an old friend soon. It will be a happy meeting with lots of chatting and giggles.
[13:30] Zoltar Cat Machine whispers: You will wonder why you don’t see them more often. Are they a cat?

Well, this is SL, so I suppose anything is possible!¬†ūüźĪ

Zoltar Cat also gave me a bunch of “lucky numbers” so I may have to run out and buy a lottery ticket to see if he’s right about any of them!

Cats and Dogs

If you haven’t visited the FLG Store lately, you really need to go check it out. There are quite a few *very generous* gifts to pick up, including the complete outfit that I’m wearing here. And by “complete,” I mean COMPLETE! ūüėÄ

The Marcelly outfit comes with pretty much everything you see here: leggings, top, shoes, bag, and headphones. And, get this: the leggings, top, and shoes come with a HUD containing 30 different textures… EACH! Seriously! That’s a different outfit for every day of the month!

The Marcelly leggings and top will fit the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya M and L
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

The shoes will fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet. Both the headphones and pug bag can be resized; click to bring up the blue resizer menu.

The FLG Store – No Cabide group is free to join. Zoltar Cat thinks you will be very happy if you go there. ūüėČ

IM Free and IM Fameshed

im100_9_001f

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Happy Rez Day to Me!

Earlier in the week, I celebrated my 7th Rez Day by picking up a few gifts for myself from the Peace By Peace Hunt. This is a brand-new hunt produced by the same team that puts on the Peace on Earth Hunt each winter, although on a much smaller scale.

There are several lovely gifts to find on this hunt, including a few nice finds for the fellas (hey, Carson!). This sexy sundress is from Ghee and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L (no alpha)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Peace By Peace Hunt runs until May 31st. Each gift is 1L, and you’ll be looking for a teal-colored puzzle piece.

Have a peaceful rest of the weekend, fabulous readers! ūüôā

Bug Me

You Bug Me

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly. 
~Barbara Haines Howett

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! The spring air was so warm and inviting this morning that I felt inspired to visit the Butterfly Conservatory to check out the butterflies. The Butterfly Conservatory is beautiful, as well as educational; not only did I learn about many different species of butterflies, but I also picked up a few tips on what we can do to help save the bees.

To be honest, I learned way more than I ever needed to know about insects… including this guy, who stared me down while his¬†fanny blinked like a lightbulb. We don’t have “lightning bugs” in my neck of the real world, but I do hope the real ones are a bit smaller. Thank goodness he couldn’t get out of his box! ūüėĮ

Out of My Cocoon

The butterflies weren’t the only ones spreading their wings this morning. Earlier in the week,¬†Nala Design¬†put out a new gift for Fab Free group members, and I fluttered right over right away to snatch it up. I really like the classic design of this dress, making it perfect not only for a walk in the park but also for the office, shopping, or an evening out with your sweetie.

The Sleeveless Dress in Stone includes the belt and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-XL with alpha
  • FITMESH XS-XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

To grab this gift for yourself, head over to Nala Design and activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag. The group is free to join.

Oh! And I added the Sassy/Classy Bag in black and silver, which is only 25L at Duh! I do love me some handbags! ‚̧

I feel the need to fly off and plant a virtual butterfly garden now. Enjoy the rest of your day! ūüôā
