Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know?🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

Tropical Mornings

Tropical Mornings

I was in the mood to walk the beach this morning… but needed some proper attire. There was a group gift out at paper.arrow that I thought was perfectly fitting for such a walk and so I headed over to pick it up. This slip dress is yours FREE with your group tag. It comes in two versions — the one I am showing you in the picture above which has the mint top and flamingo skirt, or one with an all-over flamingo print.

This dress comes in Maitreya and Slink fits, and does not include an alpha layer (though I’m sure if you needed one, you could probably dig one up out of your inventory). The group fee is a one time cost of 250L, but you’ll find a wall full of past group gifts up at paper.arrow to pick up, as well as this pretty dress to make it worth joining.

I decided I was going to do some “rock hopping” instead of “sand walking” and so I really wanted some cute tennis shoes to finish off my look. Lindy Modern & Retro shoes did not let me down! For just 1L and a little hunting time, I found this pair of adorable pink tennis shoes at their main-store as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt 6. These shoes includes fits for classic, Slink flat, and Maitreya feet… so everyone wins out!

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Metropolis

If you thought pink wasn’t in, think again! I’m back with my alt-er ego to show you a couple of great gifts that will have you rethinking pastels and ‘cool’ in one stop!

Head to Wicca’s Wardrobe and pick up the latest group gifts. For just 50L for your group membership you’ll get access to the most recent FREE group gift — the Billy Pants which my alt-er ego Loki is sporting in blue (the gift comes in pink as well). These awesome asymmetrical mesh pants come in all the standard sizes, and Wicca’s Wardrobe is offering them in both men’s and women’s styles! And if that wasn’t enough reason to join the group, there is a vendor FULL of past group gifts (both men’s and women’s) just waiting for you to click and grab to your hearts content!

While I was at Wicca’s Wardrobe, I also nabbed up the Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift. For just 1 little Linden, this Nuella jumpsuit in its soft pastels and all the standard mesh sizes is yours! I thought it was the perfect complement to Loki’s new pants😉

Enjoy the weather! Loki and I are headed to the city to sight-see!

My Address is Ninth Ave on the Beach

My Address is Ninth Ave Beach 1

Midnight Manias are the words of the day! And I picked up some great ones to share with you! Can you believe that Moon {Hair} has already put out a fresh hair on the Midnight Mania board? It’s true! This beautiful updo called Ninth Ave Reverie in Naturals 2 is on the board now for you for FREE. It locks down fast, so get there early! You do need the group tag, which is 100L to join, but there are lots of group gifts, lucky letters, and the Midnight Mania board which changes out often, making this a group well worth your Linden!

Speaking of Midnight Mania boards…….. dun dun dun! I’m sunning on the beach in a beautiful new dress thanks to one! If you take a hop and a pop stop over to Total Eclipse, you can slap the Midnight Mania Board there and if it locks down, you’ll get a FREE gift certificate for 1,000L to spend in the store! Yes, you heard me right! You can then purchase this beautiful dress among one of many others. The group is 25L to join, but for this generous of an offer, well worth the join fee.

My Address is Ninth Ave Beach 2

While you are at Total Eclipse with your nifty new group tag, be sure to grab the FREE group gift at the entrance. I’m sporting it above. It’s called Sportify! Bella Tennis Dress and has a sporty feel, just right for kicking back on the beach or other casual attire events.

I’m off to enjoy a walk in the sand. Have a great day!

Spring Gardens

Hey FabFree-ers, the last few days in my Real Life have been soaked with rain so I’m escaping to a sunnier… dryer Second Life.

Joi_001

I found two perfect little top and skirt combos in the Womenstuff Hunt just right for wandering in a garden this week.

First up, is ‘Spring Roses’ from House of Joi and it’s the 0L prize for the Womenstuff Hunt. The combined top and skirt come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and has it’s own alpha. The style is flirty and feminine with out being frilly, something I really like. Dress it up for an afternoon date or keep it simple for a walk in the garden.

Joi 2_001

Next up is this spring green combo from MooLaLa. I really love this top and skirt and I can see it becoming a regular in my wardrobe. The pieces are combined for alpha layer convenience. If green isn’t your color, the Hunt prize comes with a brown version that will be perfect for Fall. Both outfits come in standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and share that alpha layer I mentioned.

The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31st so you have a bit of time to hunt down all the fantastic prizes while enjoying the SL sunny weather!

Spring Liaison

Happy Friday, FabFree-ers!

Spring Liaison

I hope you’re gearing up for a great weekend here on the Grid. There’s a ton of sales and fairs and Hunts and events…. too many to list it seems. I discovered a new to me event -> The Liaison Collaborative. I say new to me because this is actually the third year for this event. In celebration of the birthday, many of the designers have placed out gifts for us. Most are free and a few are 1L.

I picked up my gorgeous new hair from Mina as a free gift. This is ‘Esmee’ and it comes with a HUD for five ombre colors. There are also two ‘chest size’ versions in the gift.

My dress is also a free gift from United Colors for the Liaison Collaborative. This is ‘Moly’ in sky blue. Now, technically this lovely dress is only for Maitreya Laura, Belleza Freya and Isis and SLink Natural and Hourglass. I have it on my classic system body and with a little tweaking it does fine. The dress features beautifully done lace front and back panels and a leather texture.

Spring Liaison

I added a splash of bold color with my free ‘Red Rose’ ring from Ama. The ring comes in both a gold and silver band version and for both hands.

Last, but certainly not least, my pose. oOo Studio has given us another free Birthday Gift. This is one of the five poses in the “Quirky” pose pack.  oOo Studio has done it again with five creative poses that are smooth and incredibly well built. No clipping or weird lumps to be found.

The Liaison Collaborative runs until March 30th. And here’s your taxi now!

Every little heart beat

Hello FabFree-ers! I’m back after a week of RL wrangling. It’s been pretty crazy here so thank goodness for some downtime in SL… doing my favorite thing – Hunting!

Every little heart beat

This cute little number is the ‘Heatbeats’ bubble dress from Broken Glass Boutique and it’s the 1L prize for the Love Hunt. The dress comes in Mesh sizes XS-L with the alpha layers. You also get the micro bead red and white necklace in the prize, Plus… a pair of fire engine red panties.

Every little heart beat

My shoes are from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes and they are the free prize for the Add Some Red Hunt.  The are for the system feet so no need for mesh. The prize also comes with a super cute pair of red boots as well!  Now, There is some snafu over at Fi’s hunts web page and the stores, hunt pics and SLurls are not loaded. However, I stumbled over the Hunt prize while I was hunting in LM&RS for something else. I hope Fi’s Hunts gets back up and running soon. I don’t know if the hunt was canceled or on hold.  But, as of this posting, the Add Some Red prize is out and available at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Please check back for any updates.

The Love Hunt ends on February 29 and the Add Some red hunt is scheduled to end on February 29 as well. Don’t delay!

Remember when you used to make Valentine’s cards using paper heart doilies? The lovely group gift from FA Creations reminded me of making cards using paper doilies, ah nostalgia. The gift is this pretty mesh eyelet lace top which includes a pastel color hud. You can pair it with jean like I did, shorts or a skirt would work just as nicely. Its really a versatile and cute top and will be great for summer time. You have the whole month to grab this top for FREE with a FREE group join.

Surprise!

Greetings FabFree Folks!

Surprise

I’ve been hunting today and ‘Surprise’! I found some cool things!  Well, maybe not such a surprise but I did go on the Surprise Pack Hunt. This cute dress is the Hunt prize from Veronica’s Secrets. It’s meant to be a dress but I really like the long tunic look so I paired it with some jeans. The Mesh dress comes in the standard sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.

It’s no surprise I had to have there shoes from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. ‘Kharis’ is the 1L prize on the Surprise Pack Hunt as well. The mesh shoes are compatible with system feet so no need for the Mesh feet if you don’t have them.

Surprise

The Surprise Pack Hunt from MssJewell runs until January 30 so don’t delay that will be upon us very soon!
