A Ride in the Country

Decked out country_001

I’ve been exploring again, and this time my dear friend took me horseback riding at a sim called Glanduin. You arrive and there are several areas on the sim where you can click a horse rezzer so that you can rezz a horse to ride to sight-see around the country side of the sim and its beautiful views!

I tried to put together a bit of a country girl look for the occasion, and with the help of a few lucky finds, I was able to do just that!

Three Tees!

Graffitiwear always puts out quality gifts each month, and August was no exception. They sent out three free fitmesh Tees with Maitreya autohide included as their August 2017 subscriber gift. (If you’re not a current subscriber just go to the store and slap that subsciber to get your gift.) For my picture, I donned the Tribal Tee, but I included a copy of the vendor add at the end of my blog post, so you could also see the Orange Tee and the Floral Tee as well. These fit like a charm and were so pretty!

Four skirts!

One Creations has out a generous free gift exclusively for FabFree group members. It’s a four pack of skirts in different colors. Like the Graffitiwear shirts, these skirts come in one fitmesh size, but I didn’t have any trouble getting them to fit as pretty as a picture. The four colors you get are brown (shown), red, blue, and black.

And shoes!

The Pirate Hunt also started today, so I stopped by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes to see if there happened to be a pair of shoes I could work into my look. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoes for the hunt matched my outfit like a charm! For just 2L and a bit of hunting time, I picked up the Fara Fantasy flats. They come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreaya, and Classic feet, and could match a variety of outfits with their muted blue and brown color scheme.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

A garden in my backyard!

Save me a flower_001

I planted a little garden in my backyard! Complete with a trellis and flowers and it has a pretty stained glass finish! Better yet, it’s a free gift that I’m going to tell you about along with my outfit!

Get my dress!

I picked up my dress at Monomania when I stopped by there to check out the current gifts. There are many gifts currently at the main-store, including the store’s group gifts as well as gifts associated with other groups such as our very own FabFree group as well as this dress I picked up, which is a Third Life Group Gift. The Third Life group costs just 10L to join and gets you gifts at many stores across the grid… like this pretty pink dress called “Candy” at Monomania!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I wandered back to Lindy Modern & Retro after having stopped by the other day. Discovering all those 1L shoe hunts had me excited, and I was sure I could find a pair of shoes to match my new dress. I was right! The pretty pink pair of shoes you see in my picture includes fits for classic, Maitreya and Slink feet and are only 1L as part of the Summer Diaries Hunt. Pick them up at the Lindy Modern & Retro Shoe Store before the end of the month!

Planting flowers.

Finally… my garden centerpiece! This beautiful garden trellis by Crys Secret Garden is a free gift exclusive for FabFree group members. As always, your FabFree group is free to join. Don your FabFree tag and teleport to Crys Secret Garden to pick up this pretty trellis for your back (or front) yard. It weighs in at only 8 prim and includes many beautiful flowery details!

Picnic Time!

Picnic_001

Summer is perfect for picnics and bbq’s and I have the perfect summertime picnic outfit for you!

That dress!

You’ll love this picnic perfect dress by Glitterati! I picked it up as the July Group Gift. As always, this creator has generously put out a beautiful monthly group gift. The group join is 100L, but you’ll be able to look forward to a gift every month, plus all the past gifts are still available (and if you’re new to the group, you’ll be unpacking boxes for ages!), so it’s definitely worth it to join this group and pick up this pretty summery dress with its vintage print.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocasin
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Picnic Feet_001

Paired up.

I matched my new dress with a new pair of shoes, courtesy of Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These summery flats with the ribbon up the ankle come in sizes to fit Maitreya and Slink (both Hourglass & Physique) feet and are a great addition to any wardrobe for only 1L and a little hunting time. They are part of the Home and Garden Hunt.

While I was at the Lindy Modern & Retro main-store I noticed that there were a lot of hunts going on. I picked up quite a few pairs of shoes for just 1L each. Now is a great time to visit the store and see what you can find!

Creepy Steamy

Give Me Steam_001

Feeling Creepy?

Or are you feeling Steamy? I think this look is a cross between dark burlesque and creepy steampunk and I really like it. I managed to put it together for free with some pieces from various gifts that you can grab up if you hurry. All the offers expire in the next three days (March 31st). So don’t wait.

First up, grab my burlesque corset from BYRNE as the free March Subscribo gift. You’ll get both a copper (shown) and purple (not shown) color in your gift box. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus you’ll also get popular mesh body sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. While you are at BYRNE, be sure to pick up the free group gift (the group is free to join). It was really nice as well.

Steam on!

I paired my new corset with a pair of outstanding Steampunk boots from the Steam XII Hunt. These boots were free as part of the hunt, and I found them with just a bit of searching at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They are unrigged mesh, and made to fit standard bodies as well as all the major mesh body types. I got them to fit my Maitreya body perfectly just by hiding my feet! The detailing on them of the gears, straps, and buckles is amazing, and they matched the Corset just perfectly.

Give Me Steam_002

Carnival touches…

I really liked the lucky dip this week at PA Designe and couldn’t help but try my chances at it. Luckily I landed the scull nose chain and earring. It’s all one piece for easy fitting. When I attached it, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t require any editing at all to get it to fit to my Catwa Head. This item is completely free if you are lucky on your dip in the bucket. Take a chance on this skull inspired jewelry piece!

March On!

March On_001

March on!

We are marching into the last week of March, and I have my gold shoes that I found at the end of the rainbow… or to be more specific, I found them as part of the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. For just 1L and a little hunting time for the icon, you can pick these pretty gold pumps up.

For your 1 little Linden, you’ll get heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet all in one package for that tiny little sum. It’s well worth the trip to the Lindy Modern & Retro. Plus while you are there, pick up the other hunt gifts. There are many out! One is free, and the rest are all 1L as well. You can stock up on your shoe wardrobe!

A touch of green…

I needed a dress for my new dress shoes, so I picked up the pretty green dress from Ass Kicking Angels. It is the free FabFree group gift out for March! It includes both this lovely dress as well as the matching necklace (which has a pretty clover attached to it).

You’ll get the following sizes:

  • Standard classic avatar
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

We match!

We match!

Hey there!

Before I begin, I’d just like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and that I hope you had a great one! As for myself, I’m pretty excited to continue my adventures in Second Life; who knows what kind of fun and freebies 2017 will bring! Even with the festivities behind us, I was still in the mood for bright colors and knitwear and was very pleased to see that the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Marquesse Pret a Porter was a great mix of both. The Paige shirt was certainly a welcomed addition to my virtual wardrobe and not only for its vivid color (which is perfect for when you’re in the mood for color blocking by the way) but also for its fun and flirty design. Best of all, you can have this off shoulder little number for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group (no join fee required). Simply cut and paste the following link into the main chat box in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link when it pops up in main chat. Aforementioned link is; secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and if you’ve just joined us, welcome to the group!

Coming to a close

With the Winter Cart sale at the Wash coming to an end today, this is the last chance for you to pick up some goodies for yourself and your friend for just 10 L. I’ve recently purchased a new pair of Slink hands (finally something to cross off that bucket list) and thought that it was about time that I got a manicure. Pictured is the Diti Gold Omni set from La Boheme and the package includes a manicure set for Maitreya as well as a manicure and pedicure set for Slink and Omega.

I also stopped by the Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes cart at the Wash to pick up to pick up this gorgeous pair of boots. I own a similar pair in the real world and am always tickled when I get to dress the avatar in a similar fashion. You don’t need prim feet for this pair and the package includes a nifty alpha mask and shoe base to help with the fit.

My little friend

I stumbled upon this cute little guy on the Marketplace and thought to include him in the picture because our outfits matched (lol). For just 0L you can get a Baby Polar Bear for yourself too at the Meli Imako Marketplace store. The bear itself comes in both standing and sitting positions (shown) as well as AO, UV, Normals, Specular maps and textures. Full disclosure, as I haven’t gotten into building in SL yet, I’ve no idea what all of those are but the polar bear is cute and I’ve always had a thing for keeping odd animals around the house…

Speaking of, with two cats, several owls and now this little guy, I’m going to have to find a place that sells kibble for them all. Until next time guys!

Morning Shopping at the Wash

Good Morning, FabFree!

Take the mic

I don’t know about you but it’s an “I need coffee” sort of morning here. I was up late, maybe too late but a little coffee and a little shopping? Now that’s the way to start the day.  I started out at the fantastic Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash and found this wonderful mini dress from Zanze. This is the Becca dress in cream I’m showing off. But it comes in several just-as-tasty colors and all for 10L each. The dress includes the standard Mesh sizes XS-L but it has no alpha layer. I found I actually didn’t need one. The dress fits perfectly! Just don’t forget your undies since you aren’t alphaed! 😉

Right next to the Zanze Cart is the always awesome Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes Cart. Lindy has put out a very nice loaded Cart this round with shoes for SLink feet and system feet. I picked the Yeva heels in nude to match up with my new dress.

Last but not least, is a new hair style to top things off. This is the lovely ‘Esra’ from Sentinus and it was one of the current free groups gifts.  As of right now, the Sentinus group is free to join! Plus there is a nice selection of group gifts available, a free SLF&Os gift AND a great Hunt/sale going on! So don’t delay!

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.

My Ruby Slippers 2

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!

My Ruby Slippers 3

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.
