Take Time to Stop and Smell the Roses

A Single Rose

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  It’s a three day weekend where I am in RL, and I sure am looking forward to it.  I have a lot of little projects that I’ve been putting off around the house, but I’m also eager to share some more Fabulous Finds with you all.  Ripley and I will head out to wander the grid, and search for some budget friendly fashions to blog.

Happiness is Receiving a Love Letter

Although I spent the recent holiday cuddled up with my favorite canine pal, I still had a love letter delivered right to my inbox……the Addison Love Letter Dress from Ecce Bellus, that is.  With beautifully handwritten text adorning the bodice, a slender belt to accentuate your waistline, and a solid skirt that falls to mid thigh, this bright and cheery frock is sure to look adorable on your avatar.  The free gift box for members of Fabulously Free in SL includes the red option I am wearing in my picture as well as one with a white top.  Both come in mesh for classic avatars and versions for mesh bodies, so this is a versatile outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

 

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

An Open Letter to Spring

An Open Letter to Spring

Dear Spring,

I know you’re still really far away, but I’d like you to come back to me.  I am aware that it is February and I live in the frozen North, but such petty little details shouldn’t keep us apart!  I’m sure whichever part of the world you’re in right now won’t mind if you come this way just a little sooner.  I promise.

Forever Yours,

Aline

Spring Hopes

I know.  I’m weird.  What isn’t weird, is this really gorgeous spring-inspired dress by Fashionably Dead.  They’ve put out a group gift for Valentine’s day that comes with an HUD to change to a myriad of different flowery textures.  I love it.  You can pick up this dress by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100L.  There are several other gifts out as well for your paltry fee!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

New Hair? Where!?

Sintiklia are up to their old tricks again, placing a new group gift out at their store.  You can grab this full fatpack of hair (that has several different bangs in the box, as well as a styler HUD for completely different looks), by joining the Sintiklia group for 100L.  There are plenty of gifts out there as well, making this group join super worth it.

Maybe if I dress for spring, it will come! It’s worth a try…

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

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

.miss chelsea. judi top - group gift out now!

The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to join, but on the desk you’ll find several past group gifts still available, many of which shown here on FabFree!

Short Cut

The free gifts don’t stop there!  These sweet Sporty Shorts by Pixicat come in two love themed prints and are FREE at The Shop Your Heart Out Event!

Sizes Included:

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

Happy Valentine’s Day ❤

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Chase Away Those Blues

Bluetiful

Hello there, Fabulouses.  Boy, have Ripley and I found a sexy number to share with you tonight to help ease any mid-week blues you might have!  With a side slit that travels up, up, up, and a plunging neckline, the Althea Slit Dress from the YM Shop is sure to draw eyes your way.  Its dark navy tone and long sleeves contrast beautifully with the sexy glimpse of skin revealed in the view from the side.  With sizes for classic avatars, plus mesh body versions, this outfit is sure to fit almost any everyone.  The best part is that you can pick up this curve-hugging gown for free as a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  Simply activate your tag, teleport to the store, and click the vendor.  Actually, there are *two* free female gifts for Fab Free group members in the shop.  I blogged the Dandy Outfit in my post {HERE}, (it’s still available) so you can journey back home with a pair of outfits that cost you absolutely nothing!  Talk about a sweet treat in time for Valentine’s Day!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Belleza (2 versions)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope you have a wonderful holiday on the 14th.  I am looking forward to spending a quiet evening at home with my best pal.  He may not bring me a dozen roses or a box of chocolates, but he certainly fills my heart with unconditional love.  What more could a girl ask for?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Fabulouses 😉  In this blog entry, I’ll be sharing news about a free fatpack of hair by Truth, a couple of 10L finds at The Wash Cart Sale and some items priced at 50% off at Petite Mort!

The Hair…  I always start with the hair!

Astra by Truth is available as a FREE gift in a full fatpack of colours and includes the stylist HUD that allows you to make a few changes to make this cute “do” your style! Astra was a previous release so you may already have it in your inventory, but has been updated with the new colours and stylist HUD options!  You’ll find this free hair gift priced at 0L at The Shop Your Heart Out Event Truth display along with some really great half price sale items.  Additionally, the hairstyles that they have on sale for the event is also on sale in their marketplace store!

Completing The Look

Sometimes to complete an outfit, you need to add a little something extra, and today I am showing off a couple of accessories you can pick up at The Poeme display at The Wash Cart Sale for 10L a piece!   The Pueblo cross body fringed suede bags are available in ten different colours and the Dangle Earrings in seven! The Spring Is In The Air Event on The Wash Sim where everything is just 10L is ending on February 14th… which is tomorrow!  If you haven’t had a chance to check out what the participating designers have for you, make sure to make some time for it today!
