She’s Just A Girl

FabFree: She's Just A Girl
Hello there Fabulouses!  I have a couple of group gifts to tell you about today.  One is by Glam Affair and the other by Scandalize!

A-Mazed

Do you remember that amazing Glam Affair group gift I told you about in July [HERE]? Well… I know you will have a hard time believing it so soon after such a generous gift, but Glam affair has put out ANOTHER group gift, this time for September!  In the gift you will find a head applier for Lelutka (not shown) and Catwa!

You can see me wearing the sweet applier called Maze 007 Shy on my Catwa Catya mesh head which is the FREE gift for Catwa!  It has a youthful, lightly freckled, slightly blushed look to it.  The 007 body appliers are not included so you’ll need to purchase those at the store if you’d like a perfect match.  The Glam Affair group is just 30L to join, and on the desk you’ll find both the other gift I blogged about before, and this new one!

A Scandalizing Gift @ Vanity Event!

There’s a new free group gift at Vanity Event by Scandalize!  At the entrance of the store on the wall to the right, you’ll find the vendor for the Scandalize Kimberly Set which includes the Nude and Nude Ombre version of Kimberly AND these sweet arm/leg ribbons.  This ribbon-wrapped bunchy cotton set is just in the one colour with the ombre option, however the arm/leg ribbons come with a texture change HUD with several different colours, and I imagine these will be fun with a lot of different outfits!  The Vanity Event group is free to join!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

It’s The Country Life for Me!

On the Fence

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, I opened the closet where I keep Ripley’s harness to retrieve another item, and he got *super* excited like he always does.  He jumped up and down, stared at the harness, whined a bit, and would not remove his head when I tried to close the door.  I wasn’t planning to go hunting, but when Rip gets an idea in his one track mind, I’ve learned it’s best to go with the flow.  I’m sure glad I did because the Kat/Rip duo discovered my entire outfit from cowboy hat to boots – and only spent 6 little Linden dollars in the process.

She’s a Little Bit Country

The Country Music Life Hunt is running at Brii Underground, and it features ten themed outfits, all for just 6 Linden dollars each.  All you have to do is wander throughout the shop, and keep your eyes peeled for the hunt icon – a rearing horse.  Since they are good sized objects, it didn’t take us long to complete the entire hunt in one evening.  There’s even a hint note card for an added boost.  The Suellen outfit I’m wearing happens to be item number 10, and my favorite one out of the bunch.  Featuring a denim romper with dark calico accents, this little number will have you all set up for an afternoon working on the farm, or just a casual day out and about.  A buttoned center section, pockets and rolled up hems on the shorts are some of the special additions that really lend a country flair to this darling outfit.  Tights, boots, a wide brimmed cowgirl hat, and a knotted bandanna completed my look.  Sunglasses and make up are also tucked inside the package, but I decided not to wear them in my photo.  You’ll find classic as well as mesh body versions in the prize package, so the Suellen Romper is sure to fit a wide variety of avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
  • TMP
  • Tonic (Curvy, Fine)
  • Tights for classic plus appliers for Maitreya, Omega, Slink
  • Boots (includes foot shaper and alpha for classic avatars)
  • Sunglasses
  • Make Up Omega Applier for Catwa Head Jessica

Phew!  That’s a whole bunch of items all tucked carefully into one hunt prize!  And you get them all for just 6 Linden dollars, plus a bit of time searching around.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Yes Please, All Them All

Yes Please! All Them All!

Hello Fabulouses!  I just can’t quite make up my mind which sweet to choose, but this is Second Life and our clothes always seem to fit no matter what these days, so I’m just going to have ALL THEM ALL!  This little cafe with all the treats is right beside the FabFree Info Hub on The Wash Sim, and you are welcome to hang out there any old time you like.

Where can you get this great dress for free?

I’ll tell you where!  At Petite Mort, you can find this darling Lavender Serene Lace Dress as a free lucky board prize.  You are required to join the Petite Mort inworld group to participate, however the group is still free to join.  The free group join may change in the future, as I remember there used to be a fee before the move, so make sure you join and stay in it just in case!

It is a little hard to see the arms, as I have added a sweater from my inventory by COCO, however it is sleeveless making this a great dress for the upcoming spring weather! (I hope it’s upcoming…  I see I am under another severe weather advisory for this afternoon again -.-).

Sizes Included:

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

A Little Extra Frill

Lacy Sweater
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are sure happy to be back in Second Life, and we’re also super excited to share our latest Fabulous Find with you.  We discovered this lovely Sweater With Lace Frills as a free group gift upstairs at Sweet E’sDesigns.  With its long sleeves and cozy knit, this soft green dress is sure to keep you toasty warm on mid-winter mornings.  What I really love about this frock is the lace trim on the cuffs and hemline, which adds a decorative, feminine touch that I thought was just so pretty!  Since I was blessed with a sunny day, I chose to wear the outfit with bare legs, but I am sure it would look just as beautiful with a coordinating pair of leggings.  The free gift package for members of the Sweet E’s group (free to join) includes fit mesh for classic avatars, as well as versions for mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Separate alpha layers for dress and lace
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Are You Feeling Lucky?

While I explored the shop, Ripley laid down in front of the four lucky chairs located at the top of the stairs.  I’m thankful he did, because after a short time, he ran over to me, grabbed my hand, and gently led me over the a chair with a wild card ? on it.  I came away with a 100L Sweet E’s gift card in addition to my lovely new dress.  So, I’d suggest keeping an eye on local chat to see if your special letter pops up, too.  I can’t wait to put my gift card to good use!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

Oh my goodness, hasn’t this been an amazing week of shopping and gift-getting? Thank goodness SL offers an endless supply of 24-hour coffee shops so we can always find a caffeine pick-me-up to keep us going. 😆

The only thing I love more than December Advent calendars is December Advent calendars that don’t expire after one day! You know, sometimes Real Life happens, and you can’t get in-world one day so you end up missing out on a really amazing gift.

Well, today I bring you glad tidings of TWO stores that have Advent calendars with gifts you can pick up until Christmas!

Advent Adventures

PurpleMoon Creations has once again set out an Advent calendar with beautiful, high-quality gifts. I’m showing you three of them today.

First up is the gorgeous green Velvet Dress, which was the Advent gift for day #7. It comes in the following mesh sizes:

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

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

The jewelry you see here were also Advent gifts from PurpleMoon. My necklace and earrings were the gifts for day #5, and the pretty snow globe ring was the gift for day #8. I don’t believe the ring is specifically for bento-enabled hands, but it seems to work fine with my Maitreya hands.

Another must-visit Advent calendar is the one at Hello Dave. Each day, there is a new, holiday-themed nail palette for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled (includes Belleza, Empire, and Vista) hands. I’m wearing the day #6 palette, which is white with delicate gold snowflakes.

To receive these – and more! – Advent gifts, you will need to join each store’s in-world group. But it’s a small price to pay for the fabulous gifts you will receive, not only at Christmas, but ALL YEAR LONG, as both stores are extremely generous with gifts. 😀

P.S. Just a note about my shoes by BREATHE: they are still available as a free gift at FaMESHed. But don’t look for them under the Christmas tree; you’ll find them next to one of the concierge tables outside the glass ring. These shoes come with a texture-change HUD and were originally shown in black by Love HERE last month.

Just Waiting Around…

Endless Waiting

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  Ripley and I had quite an adventure last night that involved a check engine light, a tow truck, and an excruciating wait at a garage for a mechanic that moved as slow as molasses in January.  After hours of tapping our toes, we were finally able to get back on the road, but it made for a very long day, indeed.

Leather Jacket

While we remained on stand-by in the brisk November air, I was glad to have my cozy jacket from Mad Cat Crreations to ward off the chill.  With a double layered lapel, rolled back cuffs, and a snug-fitting waist buckle, I was cloaked in comfort.  A gleaming zipper helped to insulate me and seal out the breeze trying to work its way through to my bones.  One thing I really enjoy about this coat is the way it nipped in at the waistline and emphasized my curves.  The best part – this fall essential only cost 1L and a bit of searching time in The Jerky Turkey Hunt.  To pick up one for yourself, teleport over to Mad Cat Crreations and locate the orange feather concealed in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

It’s Time for a Pity Party

Ripley and I had discovered another hunt prize, the Spiked Collar from Ama. that coordinated perfectly with my outfit.  An offering for the Pity Party at the Doll House Hunt, this neck wear comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the rhinestones set into the black leather band.  After searching around the store, the pupster located the hunt object, (a small pink dollhouse).  I paid 10L, then happily scooped up my new bauble.  You can see a close up of it in the image below (along with my face when I received the bill from the mechanic).  Although I enjoy being without a monthly car payment, maybe it’s time to search for a new vehicle…

And then You Get the Bill

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
