Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

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

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

le 4 Juillet

le 4 Juillet

Growing up, one of my favorite classes in high school was French, and I had an amazing French teacher who was French-born. We would celebrate Bastille Day on July 14th, and my French teacher was always great about recognizing both the 4th of July as well as Bastille day, and we would have celebrations for both as she would teach us the importance of both holidays and how they were similar and how they were different. I admired her a lot.

I thought of her today as I stopped on my gift rounds and put together my outfit. I thought of her as I thought about the importance of fighting for human rights, freedom, and things we believe in. She was an inspiration to me. So this post is for her… my le 4 Juillet!

Pick up your heels!

Graffitiwear put out two really terrific gifts for the month of July, so pick up your heels and get down to the store to pick them up! If you are already a subscriber member, you should have received the free July Subscriber gift, which is this great set of Strappy Blue heels. They come in a box that includes heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, as well as a pair that says “Map” that I’m not familiar with. If you’re not a subscriber, just slab that board and the heels will be delivered to you!

A new dress!

My new dress is the July group gift. Just wear your Graffitiwear group tag and pick up this July dress which is perfect for any July celebration.

It comes in the following sizes:

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

New hair too!

I’ve been showing you some of the great gifts from the Hair Fair here and here, and I’m back again with another great style. I love this edgy look from KoKoLoReS called “Sniper.” I think it’s super sexy, and it’s not only free but it comes in a fatpack of colors too!

Again I went to the cam area and shopped from there, using the trick that I told you about in my post here to be able to select things from long distances. I picked up this style and was thrilled!

Happy cam shopping at the Hair Fair! There are so many wonderful gifts to be had!

A Street Fair Find

Independance Day

Street Fairs are still in!

I took a stroll down The Old Fashion 4th of July Street Fair, which is going on until July 9th, and was thrilled to see all the free gifts (woot free!) as well as the discount deals and low cost items. There were many free items I could have shown off for you, but in the end, I decided I would spend a little bit of linden to don the one thing that really caught my eye!

Ready for Independence Day!

At the G Sloane booth, I picked up this Mesh Flag Wrap Dress for just 10L! It comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a quality alpha as well and fits like a dream. (There were several other discount items at this booth that were just as pretty as well as a free gift basket!) I couldn’t resist the pretty wrap style, and the price was just right.

Another Hair Fair gift.

As I showed you in my post here, I went cam shopping for gift hair at the Hair Fair again. Don’t forget to check out my tip on how to get rid of that pesky issue that keeps you from selecting things that are far away. My post here tells you the special trick.

This time, I picked up this pretty hair from DUE called Crystal. It only comes in the one color (brunette) but it was such a lovely pony tail style that I didn’t mind deviating from my usual silver colored hair. And it was free too!

I hope you have a great day gearing up for the 4th of July tomorrow!

The New Color of Sexy

Shine

I’m still relaxing in my comfy chair. I’ve spent the morning sorting through old journals of my grandfather’s from World War II. He’s been gone for several years now, but I miss him and it’s been nice to travel down memory lane and learn a little more about his life. I haven’t changed out of my pajamas yet either… this great set of wine colored lingerie.

The new color of sexy…

Ashmoot has been putting out beautiful gifts each month, including this Long Shirt that is still out that Love blogged here. This month was no exception and you can pick up this gorgeous applier lingerie in burgundy as a free group gift (the group is free to join). It comes in appliers for System bodies, Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. I really fell in love with the lacy neckline and lace bodysuit of the one piece.

The Hair Fair is here!

The Hair Fair started yesterday! And we all know that not only does that mean money is raised for a great cause, but that creators are generous with lots of amazing and wonderful gifts for visitors. You can visit the Hair Fair website for more information here.

I picked up my luscious locks by enVogue by stopping at one of the cam shopping locations on the outskirts of the Hair Fair. These have been set up to allow you to cam shop. There is less lag and you can just cam in and look in the booths to pick out the items that you want.

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

I cammed away while I was in the corner of the Foils Cam Sim and happened to see the enVogue booth and picked up the gift there for just 1L. When I opened it, I was thrilled with the gift inside. This style, called Beyonce, includes a hud for a fatpack of colors and has a beautiful flow and realistic texture. It was well worth my camming and crowd fighting time!

Everything I Wished For

Stargazing

It’s still early enough that the sun’s not quite up where I am and I can still catch a few of the stars that are out before the sunrise melts them away. Was that a falling star?! I made a wish! What will you wish for?

Everything I wished for…

… is at S@BBiA today. I got an amazing free group gift at S@BBiA yesterday and I had to share it with you so you could get it today. I’m not sure how long it will be out, so make sure you hurry! This back bow blouse with beige denim skirt is the current free group gift (the group is free to join) and it is just adorable.

The gift comes in one mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The two pieces are separate and they did include alpha layers, so I believe they would fit a system body very well also. I think they may be a very good quality fitmesh (or perhaps a Maitreya fit). The outfit might fit other bodies very well also and for the grand cost of free, who could pass up trying it out!

I’m going to catch a few more winks at the stars before they disappear completely. Happy stargazing if you go, and happy shopping!

A Little Pink

A Little Pink

Yawn… It’s Friday, but maybe I’ll just stay in bed all day, especially since I found this sexy little pink number that I don’t want to take off. I’m all comfy, and sleeping in seems like a good idea. Breakfast in bed… an extra cup of coffee… maybe an a late brunch…

You can sleep in too!

If you decide you like this delectable lingerie with its lacy peekaboo material (and built in panties… it’s all one piece for convenience… just take a teleport to Selene Creations where you can pick it up free. You’ll need to go upstairs to the gift area, and if you are not already a member of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Gifts Group, join the group (no fee, it’s free to join) and then you can get this gift free. Right next to it, you can pick up the same romper in lavender as an SL frees & offers gift as well!

Sizes available:

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

Well I’m back to bed… I’m still thinking about that extra cup of coffee. Today it’s rainy where I’m at, so bed seems like the perfect cure. Happy daydreaming!

Heads Up!

Heads Up

If you’ve been wanting to try out a bento mesh head… BUT haven’t wanted to spend the large amount of lindens that the new bento heads can cost? Boy do I have the deal for you! AK Creations is giving an anniversary gift not to be missed!

Heads up!

If you are a group member of AK Creations, you can buzz on down to the store and pick up your Lulu bento mesh head free with your group tag. If you’re not a member, join the group for 150L to get in on the deal. That’s a small fee for a bento mesh head.

The gift package includes:

  • The Lulu head in versions 2.5 and 2.6
  • An alpha
  • A set of mesh teeth
  • A bento shape (shown worn in the picture)
  • And Body appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP (in a single box that you have to open… all the appliers are inside that one box).

I purchased an Omega relay for the AK head for just 99L off the marketplace (there is a link on the wall near the heads inside the store to take you directly to the marketplace link) and was able to then wear a skin I already had inside my inventory — one of my favorite Lumae skins that was Omega ready. It looks great with the AK bento head in my opinion!

Hurry and get your AK Creations group gift bento head while you can… and let the guys know too, because there is a guy’s version of the gift out for them as well!

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
