Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Beauty Rest

morning after_001

Up at midnight.

I swore I heard something outside the window. Maybe it’s just the branches tap tap tapping on the window pane. It howled up a storm last night and I didn’t sleep as well as I would have hoped. Thankfully, I slept beautifully in my new nighties, even if I didn’t get in as many beauty winks as I would have liked.

A fatpack for 1L

This nightie is just one of a fatpack of nighties you can get as a group gift at Bella Moda for 1L. Yes, you heard me right. Join the group for 1L and pick up the group gift free. You’ll get the full fatpack of this gorgeous Intimissi Lace Nighties & Panties set (the nightie and panties are two separate pieces).

Colors included: Black, Blue, Blush, Red, Teal (shown), and Violet.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I don’t see anything at the window after all, so I’m back to my beauty rest. Night, night everyone!

Tempt me.

I stopped by Tori’s Stylez because they tempted me with their free hunt gift offering for the Tie the Knot Hunt… I just couldn’t pass it up. Even if you aren’t planning on tying the knot, you just might want some free lingerie, after all!

What you get.

Hunt down the little ring box (there’s a clue where to look if you click the hunt icon at the entrance of the store) and you’ll get a free package of system layers and an omega applier for this pretty white lingerie.

It includes the ability to sort of mix and match so that you can wear different pieces and leave other pieces off. So if you want to wear the bra and panties only, you can! Want to wear the stockings and the bra? Covered! There is also a button to apply the entire lingerie outfit at once, if you don’t want it to be complicated to get all the pieces in the right spot 😉

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

His & Hers at Ruby’s

With the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt ending May 15th, you still have a little over two weeks to pick up some of the really amazing prizes. Loki and I stopped by House of Ruby and picked up some… wardrobe essentials today.

His and Hers at Rubys 1

If you hunt down that iconic hunt symbol, this sensual pink body suit is yours FREE as part of the hunt gift at House of Ruby. It comes in both Omega and Slink appliers. It is sheer enough that to share it with you, I had to wear a hair that would cover bits 😉 , but it is a beautiful body suit for any lady to add to her virtual closet.

His & Hers at Ruby's

For the guys, House of Ruby is offering these cheeky lowered trunks with a “bunny” print. These too are FREE as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt. Like the women’s gift, they come in Omega and Slink appliers… but this also has system layers, sure to fit any fella’s clothing needs.

Be Mine… Even In April

Be Mine... Even In April

When you need something to unwind in at the end of the day, House of Ruby has the perfect duo — matching guy’s briefs and lady’s lingerie. This set is yours FREE as a subscribo gift if you stop by the main-store and click the subscriber. In the box you’ll find a system layer of men’s briefs as well as men’s appliers for slink men’s mesh bodies and an omega applier as well. For ladies you’ll find Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies (there are no system layers for ladies).

Loki stopped by Legal Insanity and picked up the February group gift which is FREE and still out. It is this dual set of men’s and lady’s “Be Mine” necklaces. The gift includes both a copy/no transfer version and a no copy/transfer version of the men’s and lady’s style each. That means that rather you are a guy or a gal, if you pick up the gift, you’ll have one for yourself and one to give as a gift to someone else! Better yet, the 99L group gift fee is made well worth your Linden… there is an entire wall filled with lady’s and men’s past gifts, varying from clothing in different seasons to jewelry, all still available for just 1L each with your Legal Insanity group tag!

Be Your Queen

Be Your Queen

The Femboy Hunt really captured my interest, as it features some terrific creators and beautiful prizes. I found that while creators were offering prizes that are geared toward the femboy demographic, several work great for us gals as well!

I took a stop by !Majestic! main-store and picked up the 2L Femboy Hunt prize there and was rewarded with this gorgeous Surprise Bitch Robe. The robe comes in two colors — the animal print shown, as well as a red that is not shown. The robe comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh. It is suitable for both female and femboy avatars. I did add on my Maitreya panties to make it suitable for sharing with you here on FabFree 😉 .

I took a quick look around the store and discovered that !Majestic! also had out a really fun and beautifully made FREE group gift as well! This Be My Queen headphone/crown set is FREE with your  FREE group membership and is a jewel fit for any queen! The details on it are superb!

Cozy & pink

Cozy & pink

Some days nothing feels as good as a cozy robe.

Gothicatz sure knows this with their FREE Sweethearts short robe gift. No group to join just hang a left when you walk inside the store and there is a big display just waiting for you. This cozy robe comes not only in fitmesh but also Belleza, Maitreya and Slink fits. As you can see there is a small store logo on the pocket but it didn’t stop me from cuddling up in this cute robe.

Cozy & pink

You can wear this robe alone but I do have a sweet feminine bra and panty set on underneath which is a FREE group gift from M*Motion in their group notices. Notices only last for 2 wks and you have about a wk to still grab this notice before it disappears. The group is FREE to join. You get system layers and Maitreya appliers. The set gives almost a sheer appearance while not being sheer at all. This lovely set is going right in my lingerie drawer, its a keeper.

This cozy robe is just begging me to grab a chick flick and curl up on the couch and how can I argue such a good plan.
