The Next Day

MHScandalizeSnatchHope you don’t mind if I blog with my eyes closed…

UGH!  The events of last night flooded back into my brain as I winced in pain trying to hide the from the sun, which seemed to be extra bright this morning.  An afternoon of Mojitos with Pru [shown here], turned into more mojitos and a girls night out.  She is such a bad influence on me :O!  Why, oh why did I drink so  much, and since when do I dance on bars?  I better call Pru and see what other “crazy girls night out” things I can’t remember!

I did manage to shower and get dressed for the day,

but no way am I ready to be upright!  Thank goodness I had picked out today’s outfit yesterday so I could just slide into it this morning.

  • The Jeans:  I stopped by MH Unique Design and picked up these fantastic ripped denim capris that are available THIS WEEKEND ONLY as a free group gift with a free group join.
  • The Blouse:  My Suzy Tied Jersey Top is available as low as 50L in the riot vendor at Sn@tch for a limited time. TP your friends and bring the price down!
  • The Shoes:  Scandalize put these awesome Ainara Shoes for Maitreya out as a free group gift to their inworld group members (100L to join).  A texture change HUD is included!

Scandalize. Ainara (FREE)/me feels around blindly for her shades and aspirin.

More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day, and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! 😄

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for fitmesh (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! 😀

Everything Is Coming Up Roses

GFFloral
I feel like a flower in the garden wearing this pretty pink rose printed dress by AdoreZ that I picked up at The Garage Fair.

Will You Accept This Rose?

The Mabel Flower Dress comes in several sizes as listed below so I am sure you’ll find a size to fit you, and the best part is…  it’s just 1L!  There are a few of those barrels sitting around at the AdoreZ display at The Garage Fair, so take care when you are looking for this dress that you check for the one that is priced at 1L and check the contents first.  The others are barrels are priced at 10L and I haven’t checked them out yet, but if this dress is any indication, I am sure they are great too.

Sizes included:

  • XS-XL Mesh
  • XS-XL Fit Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Official Kick Off To Gardening Season

prismLW

Good morning Fabulouses!  Yesterday was a holiday here in Canada (YAY for a Monday free work-week!), and the official kick off to gardening season, so I spent the day flower shopping,  planting and spreading new mulch.  I did stop in online however to find some freebie news to share with all of you!

A Prism Replay

This casual two piece outfit called Naquita by Journey is available as a free group gift at Prism (no fee to join!!).  It includes the printed blouse and cuffed jeans as shown on my avatar in XXS – L mesh sizes as well as the alpha layers for hiding rogue body parts.  Now this outfit has been shown on FabFree before, way back in 2015 by Julianna – but I wanted to make mention of it again for anyone who missed the news, because it’s still available as a free group gift along with a wall full of gifts  – and is a keeper!

Been Strong Too Long

LW Poses put up a new free group gift for May at the landing point of the shop for Luane’s World group members (free to join).  This pose is called Been Strong Too Long and comes with the single pose, pose ball and mirrors.

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂

Visiting Turtle Beach

damoour
Hey there FabFree Readers!  Just out taking a quick morning walk through the sand before it gets too hot :).  I sure won’t complain about the uncharacteristically warm spring we are having after that long winter.  It felt like mid summer yesterday in my part of the world and the heat is welcome!  I have a feeling it won’t stick around for very long, so I am going to soak up as much sun as I can!

Beating The Heat

If you are in need of some summer basics, you should take a trip to Damoour!  When you join their inworld group for just 20L, you gain access to a handful of group gifts such as the denim shorts and printed blouse I am wearing today.  Both of these items come in a ton of fitmesh and mesh body specific sizes and also include alphas in case you require them for a system body.  There are also group gifts for men, which Carson will be showing off to you shortly!

Feel Good!

I also wanted to mention the pose I am using for today’s photograph because it is available as a free group gift at LW Poses!  Luane was kind enough to update her instore group gift for us picture snappers!!  The Luane’s World group is free to join, and it also gives you access to rez on her beautiful sim!

How Do I Find Dollarbies on Marketplace?

Snapshot_002
Hey there Fabulous Readers! Sometimes I find myself scanning the dollarbies on marketplace when I have a few spare minutes, because I think at times these goodies get missed in the shuffle of all of the feeds and group news and such.  I find it’s a great way to get in a little harmless pixel shopping when I can’t get inworld too!  I just fill up my cart and when I get inworld, I check out so that nothing is a miss delivery.

How to find dollarbies on marketplace:

First of all… Be careful when you are marketplace shopping, especially for things like hair and skin.  Unfortunately there are a lot of copybotters out there, and Marketplace is their jam.  It is very important that we support the original content maker, and not the person trying to benefit from someone else’s work.

There may be a better way to do this, and if anyone has any positive suggestions or tricks on how to narrow down the search, please feel free to comment, but what I do is this…

  1. Open up Second Life Marketplace.
  2. Click on the category you are wanting to explore on the left hand side.  In my case usually it’s Apparel -> Womens
  3. Scroll down to the price category on the left hand side and enter min – 1  x max – 10 and click “refine search”.

This will bring up all items that are priced in your category of choice, priced between 1-10L.  Unfortunately it does include a lot of demos, but not as many as if you select a price category of 0-10!

To make things a little easier to view, I also do the following:

  • Select items per page 96, so I don’t have to “next page” so much.
  • Select sort by Age: Newest First, which will bring up items that have been newly listed first.
  • ETA: Entering “NOT demo” into the search box will remove the demos from your listing – Tip courtesy of Brinlea

Additionally, typing words like “promo”, “gift”, and “free” into the search box will also narrow your quest for dollarbies down!

My Marketplace score of the day:

My favourite marketplace dollarbie find for today is the Eyk Tunic Dress in red by Sun*Love as shown on my avatar.   This summer chic design could be worn as a short dress as I have done, or as a blouse.  Either way you decide to wear it, you’ll be stylin!  At just 5 little lindens, it comes in mesh sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.

Do You Believe In Fate?

Snapshot_002
Hello there Fabulouses!  I believe it was purely fate that these two amazing royal blue group gifts by GOS Boutique and Blanco came out at the same time.  These two items colour match so perfectly, it would seem as though they were planned to be released together, but I’m sure…  it must just be a coincidence!

Fate only takes you so far…

Once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen, so go grab these gifts!

Your first stop is to Blanco to pick up the beautiful halter Stasia Dress that is a free group gift.  Blanco is a small shop right next to Scandalize and the gift is very easily found as soon as you enter.   I am displaying this dress in a gorgeous shade of blue, however it does come with a texture change HUD that allows for 10 solid colours and 3 prints.  This group is free to join.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya

Fate pulls you in different directions

It’s a good thing that it does, because you’ll need to take a teleport to GOS Boutique to grab the latest group gift called Karrueche in the colour of Snorkel Blue. These shoes come in XXS-L sizes as well as fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh feet.  The group is 250L to join

So Sweet You’ll Get A Toothache

MOoHAstralia
Sugar Free – Calorie Free – Cost Free

Hey there Fabulouses! If you don’t happen to have 410 spare calories for the real life limited time Unicorn Frappuccino that Starbucks has just released, don’t fret!  You can live  out your wildest full fat, triple the sugar fantasies here in Second Life!

Astralia wants you to have a calorie free Cute Frappuccino as a free subscribing gift. This gift contains a static and holdable cup so you can set it down, or hold it to drink if you like.  I haven’t actually tried one of these…  I usually just go for my Caramel Macchiato, which is already really sweet.  The pink and blue magical drink is pretty, but looks a little sweet, even for my threshold of sugary goodness.  Have you tried it?  I’m curious what it tastes like!

On A Clothing Note…

The breezy summer outfit I am wearing today is called Willow and is available at MOoH!, priced at 40% off until May 4th.  This brings it down to 99L, but if you still have your monthly group credit handy, you can pick it up  for free – with 51 lindens left to spare on your card!
