Beached Bunny

Beach Bunny

Hey, fabulous readers! I’ve been traipsing all over this beach looking for Aline. I know she’s out here somewhere… you haven’t seen her, have you?

I wonder if I’m at the wrong beach?

Oh well… no worries. She’ll turn up eventually. Right now, I need to sit down and put on some sunscreen before I get burned to a crisp!

And I’ve got some amazing items from The Beached Bunny Hunt 8 (TBBH8) to show you, so here we go! 😀

I Need Another Set of Hands

And since this is SL, I supposed I could always add a few more, right? LOL!

Anyway, I’ve got so much great beach stuff to carry, thanks to this adorable pose from X.T.C. Poses for TBBH8. The Them Summer Days pose includes the cute bento pose (obviously), as well as the sunglasses, ice cream cone, and bag full of beach essentials (including sunscreen, thank goodness).

My colorful swimsuit is TBBH8 gift from Anny’s Fashion. It includes the towel swung over my shoulder and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

All gifts in TBBH8 are 1L each. The hunt runs through July 31st.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂

In Repose

Repose

“These vapors, with their leaden, golden, iron, bronzèd glows,
Where the hurricane, the waterspout, thunder, and hell repose,
Muttering hoarse dreams of destined harms,–
‘Tis [he] who hangs their multitude amid the skiey deep,
As a warrior that suspendeth from the roof-tree of his keep […]”
— from “A Sunset” by Victor Hugo

Sunset.

I have a potted garden in real life that I tend, and I sit outside surrounded by the flowers and herbs almost every evening as the sun sets. When I passed the NSP Florals Cart at the Cart Wash, I was taken in by the dresses… particularly the blue flowered smock that I have chosen to show off. It reminded me of my evening sunsets among my flowers… mostly yellow petunias and a wide range of potted herbs such as spearmint, chives, oregano, cilantro, etc.

I love the high neckline, the detailed flowered texture, and the softly ruffled skirt that make this dress perfect for summer evenings. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a quality alpha layer, and is sure to become a favorite of yours too for only 10L. The NSP Florals Cart sports this dress in 12 different colors for you to choose from, so if blue is not to your liking, you’re bound to find something that is.

Behind the ears.

I’m a little late in showing it off, but I’m glad I didn’t forget to stop by KoKoLoReS for the monthly group gift! Be sure to stop by the main-store before June is over to pick it up. This month’s gift called “Kit” is a beautiful long and behind the ears style that has a summery and demure feel to it. It comes with a hud of natural colors to suit your needs. The group join is a one time fee of 250L, but KoKoLoReS is excellent about giving a monthly gift on schedule, usually with a range of natural colors with each gift, making the fee well worth your lindens.

Uber Girly

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulouses!  Boy am I feeling fine and flirty today, in my new floral romper, just laying under the sun enjoying the birds sing to me.  This one piece item had a bit of a vintage look to it in my opinion, so I tossed on my pink Platform Maryjanes by Livalle and braided my hair for an uber girly ensemble.

The Light In The Dark

This sweet summery find is ironically available at The Dark Side 2 Fashion Fair on the floor of the MOoH! shop, priced at just 10L!  It may be located on the dark side… but it’s definitely of light!  The Tina Romper comes in tons of fits for your body and also includes a texture change HUD for an extra colour option in pink floral too.  I am including the vendor ad below so you can see both texture options 🙂

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL + alpha layer

The Warmth of the Sun

The Warmth of the Sun

Greetings, fabulous readers! Today, I’m sharing two more free gifts from the anniversary round of Designer Circle!

This sweet, sexy top is the Designer Circle gift from MOoH! It comes with a texture-change HUD with 4 really pretty floral prints inside, and is available in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh S and L with an alpha
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Since I’m a sucker for florals, I decided to extend the motif with a floral tattoo. The Femina Tattoo is the Designer Circle gift from Pin Up, and it comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega. The tattoo also has a rose on the belly button, as well as a rose vine on the lower back.

You have until April 1st to grab the fabulous gifts at the anniversary round of Designer Circle.

Trade Wind

Trade Wind

I found a set of his and hers gifts that are really just stunning. They remind me of early morning sunrises, warm beaches, love letters and all the good things in life. I know that definitions of happiness are different for everyone, but a great find of excellent clothes is surely a win either way 🙂

In the picture above, I’m showing you the Runway Perfect Hunt gifts from Miss Darcy’s. A little bit of hunting time at the main-store for the black and white prim, and just 5 little linden, will score you this beautiful his and hers set.

The lady’s dress includes the skirt and top (they are separate pieces) in all the standard mesh sizes. I love the details of the bow on the skirt, and the tied waist top. Alphas are included for standard avatars.

The men’s gift includes the matching pants and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as an optional system Tee shirt to wear under the jacket if desired.

The gifts come in one box, so no need for hunting down two separate hunt prims.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Last Exit to the Weekend

This morning was chilly and it made me think that spring was having her last fling before summer. And of course today is Friday… that last exit before the weekend. I have a few special treats to get you through the day until Saturday blooms, though 🙂

If you’ve not yet started the Runway Perfect Hunt, you should consider picking up this dress by Loordes of London. I really like the unique style of this one piece mesh cover up (which has the look and feel of layers). It’s long enough to be a dress, but short enough to be a shirt. You could easily pair it with your favorite jeans or capris. It will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time for the black and white prim. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, and Physique.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Chop Zuey has out a new group gift called Harlow Creed… a texture change ring. I have always really loved cameos, but this one also appealed to my sense of Gothic flair. So I nabbed it up to show off to you as well. It offers 3 metal choices and several color choices for the cameo part. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting regular gifts to offset this fee, making it well worth your fee.

Last Exit to the Weekend

And since it *is* Friday, I decided to scout out the Fifty Linden Friday deals… and discovered that Livalle was offering a set of maryjanes that I really fell in love with. Previously this pair of shoes was offered in the color mint as a gift (Calleja showed them to you Here). If you missed out on that great offer, you can pick up a four pack of the shoes today. You’ll get cherry, navy, pink, and white in the box for your 50L. These shoes fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

I can sing a Rainbow, can you?

“Red and yellow, and pink and green, purple and orange and blue” *hums* Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve got some great colourful pieces to show off for you today! I know, me and lots of colour, surprising isn’t it 😛 .

I know you all are big fans of the SLF&O group, and the many gifts that are available for members. Well, one of my favourite designers that puts out SLF&O group gifts, has just switched out her previous gifts for new ones! I’m talking about Livalle. Sticking with the previous format of 3 pairs of shoes in 3 different heights, she has done the same with some pretty, perfect for spring, shoes. Each pair comes with Maitreya, Bellezza, and SLink versions, so most of you meshy feet wearers should be happy. To remind you all, the SLF&O group is free for you to join, and the gifts are free to grab with your tag on.

colourful1

The first pair, in mint,  is a maryjane style heel, meant for the mid range feet. They are called Wednesday, but obviously will work for any day!

colourful2

The second pair. in Lavender, are a great, strappy high heel for high feet. Their name is Rhiannon.

colourful3

Lastly, the third pair, is a sweet Pink and Black flat, named Rosetta. I love the little bows.

Now, did you notice the dresses I had on in each picture? These lovely, bright, geometric printed dresses are from Somnia, and you can pick up a fatpack of 5 colour combinations over @ Free*Style for only L$50. That’s L$10 a dress! They are mesh dresses, available in the standard sizes, in each colour combination. I should mention that I’ve heard the Free*Style shop will be undergoing some reno’s soon, which will also include a changing of all the great items that are there. So these dresses will not be available after that. I can’t tell you when this is happening, so I would not chance waiting too long, and head over right away. So many other great deals to be had, all items priced L$50 or lower, from so many great creators, you do not want to miss out.

Last thing before I leave you all. The Creators Collection Box is celebrating their 1st anniversary, and so almost every store that has a booth set up there, has also placed out a free gift for you. The 3 poses I used for my pictures are the gift you can grab from addme poses. I love that they include each individual pose, a pose hud, and a pose stand, so you have your choice in how you use your poses. There is no need to join any kind of group, just find the little box that says it is the anniversary gift, and buy for L$0. Sorry, I forgot to check how long this one will be running for, so again, I wouldn’t wait too long before you head over.

Alrighty. That’s it for me. Hope you’ve had a great weekend, and the coming week won’t be too terrible. Back to RL work for me, you know my feet will be dragging after having had a week off. So until I see you all again, TTFN *waves*

It’s all about the shoes here…really, is there anything else?

Happy FabFree Footwear Day!! I know you all know how big a fan I am of shoes here in SL. So you can just imagine my glee when the idea for this day was being bounced around in the FabFree Blogger’s group awhile ago. I was so excited, I ended up getting enough shoes to do 2 posts! This post will be exclusively for mesh feet shoes (of which I am using my trusty SLink feet, all heights), while my other post is a good mix of shoes for mesh feet, system feet, and in some cases, both! So here goes!

ShoeDay1 - 1

These 3 pairs are all SLF&O group gifts, kindly provided by Livalle. They are all free with your free SLF&O group tag, at the Livalle main store..

Left Picture – {Livalle} Slammers -Slip on Shoes- Pea – Unisex, for Male and Female SLink flat, Bellezza, and Maitreya. The unrigged pair could easily work for system feet too.
Middle Picture – {Livalle} Classico -Zipper Heels- Ruby Sparkle – for SLink mid, Bellezza, and Maitreya.
Right Picture – {Livalle} Modig -High Strapped Sandals- Lavender – for SLink high, Bellezza, and Maitreya.

 

ShoeDay1 - 2

These pretty teal pumps are a free group gift for Wicked group members. They, are for SLink high feet only, and come with a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour of the bows, and the soles (both inner, and outer) of the shoes. Though I really like the dual teal look they come as originally 🙂 The group is free to join, just put your tag on, and these babies are yours.

Picture – WICKED * Carmen – Heels (Teal)

ShoeDay1 - 3

These 2 shoes are from No Cabide, and they are free for everyone, no group needed. Also, they are both only for SLink high feet. Just buy the gift boxes for L$0, one on the floor, the other is on the counter.

Left Picture – :: No Cabide :: Aline Shoes For Slink High – Pair
Right Picture – :: No Cabide ::  Xmas 2015_Shoe (Black&Red) HIGH Heels

OK ladies, and those gents also reading this, there is no time to lose! Go and grab all of this lovely footwear before things start to disappear, as in SL, you never know when a gift will be replaced or just plain removed. I’ll be back later this evening with my second post, so make sure you keep your eyes out for it. TTFN!
