Pick Up! I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

Pick Up! I'm Calling You On My Banana PhoneThe banana phone is not necessarily a very effective mode of conversation, however it’s worth a shot when nothing else works and if it still fails at the very least – onlookers will be entertained.

In this blog post I have news about a new group gift at Poeme and also am revisiting Just Ordinary to show off a free instore group gift.

More of the extraordinary

I had recently blogged a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift that is available at Just Ordinary and if you liked that one shown here – you’ll love this one too!  The Char Dress in Denim Flowers that you see me wearing today is available as a free gift for Just Ordinary inworld group members (free to join!)

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic

Now About Those Shoes…

When you join the Poeme inworld group (has a 1L group join fee), you gain access to the Double Happy Roses Chucks in the floral Rhyme print.  They were just what I needed for today’s ensemble, so it was perfect timing that I came by them!

Shoe Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Unrigged + Alpha Layer

Just One Last Thing!

The Endless Summer Hello Sunshine pose that I am using today includes the bananas (for making phone calls of your own) and is available in an instore gacha at 50L per play at Le Poppycock!

Lessons Learned and Freebies Found

MimisGizzaA five star resort they said!  Expansive sandy beach, luxury spa, valet service, free wifi, turn down service, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor pools as well as lush green gardens.  It all sounded so perfect for an impromptu overnight mini-vacation to unwind and be pampered.  The real excitig news is that it was HALF PRICE!  I threw some of my essentials in an overnight bag,  got dolled up for my fancypants adventure, and blew goodbye kisses to the furbabies…

I was dressed to the nines!

Thanks to a couple of fabulous freebies, I was dressed to the nines.  I had found the Tracy Strapless Dress, designed by Gizza at Mimi’s Choice priced at 0L in a gift box on the floor.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My Snazzy Gems

This Glittz Zania Jewelry Set that includes the necklace and earrings on my avatar comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the gems, pearls and metal.  It is available as a free group gift at Tres Chic with a free group join.

Upon Arrival…

/me takes off her hat and looks around…  Am I in the right place?  I checked my phone to double check the address…  It would appear the lush green gardens are growing out of those old rusted out cars behind me and the pool as a family of ducks living in it -.-.  I have been tricked by the magic of the interwebs…  once again!  I guess it’s true what they say in regards to hotels …  You get what you pay for.  I suppose I’ll have to make the best of it!

Look Sharp For Free

Java
Hello Fabulouses!  Sometimes in Second Life, you require something a little more on the professional side for attire, and it’s not always easy to find for free.  Perhaps you have an inworld job as a customer service representative for a shop, or another type of job where you need to put your capable and confident foot forward.  Either way, this “Comfort Here Dress” by JAVA that is set out as a freebie fits the bill.

Make The Right Impression

The Comfort Here Dress comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those that need it.  There are no mesh specific body fits for this gift, however I was able to get this to fit like a glove with my Maitreya Lara mesh body using it’s alpha HUD.  It also comes with some free jewelry, however I prefer less to more when it comes to jewelry and accessories, and just wore the dress.  You can find this free gift near the subscribomatic by the main entrance, just priced at 0L – no need to join a group to take advantage of the offer.

PEACE

PrismGarageFair

Hey there FabFree Readers!  Over the last few days I have been showing you some really nice gifts that are available at The Garage Fair and I have another one to share news with you about today.

Before I get into the details of my free outfit…

I wanted to mention that it has come to my attention that some of the barrels do not contain gift items, they contain for sale items.  Please take care when you are willy nilly clicking away at the barrels that you don’t purchase something you don’t intend to.  Take your time, look around and check the prices!  There are many gifts to be found, but many great deals too.

Sky Blue Lara

The playful 2 piece set called Lara that I am wearing today is a free gift that you can pick up at The Prism Garage Fair Display by buying the contents of the barrel for 0L.  What you’ll receive is the teeny frilled tied top and the printed denim skirt.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alphas
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Are You A Poser?

If so, you should grab this fun Happy Girl Pose that I picked up for just 1L in the B&G Marketplace store.

PEACE!

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

An Opportune Mewment

Snapshot_002
“Oh come on Kitty! I just got up to look out the window… Leave my ice cream alone!”

If there is one big rule about having cats…

…  Aside from cats don’t listen to any rules…  It’s pawsatively never to turn your back on a tub of vanilla icecream.  I swear this little guy waits until I’m not looking and then dives in head first, dumping the whole thing over – every chance he gets!

Get Some Cattitude

If you are a fan of all things cat, you might want to check out the new group gift for May at MOoH!, because it is the adorable Cassandra Catsuit that I am wearing today.  It is a pretty basic full bodysuit, perfect for a lounging day, however it has the sweetest leg shreds on the front and cat tail printed on the back that completes this cathletic look.  You can select from 6 different print colours on the included texture HUD as shown below in the vendor ad.

Cassandra catsuit

The inworld group at MOoH! is 100L to join, however as I always mention when blogging the monthly MOoH! group gifts, after joining you gain access to:

  • Their monthly instore raffle
  • Their monthly group gift
  • Their monthly instore credit of 150L

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L mesh sizes
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

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.

Let’s Go Lil’ Slugger

Lil' Slugger
With the sun still shining on the way home from work (HORRAY FOR LONGER DAYS!), he was itching to throw a few balls outside and enjoy the sun. I was just getting dinner started, when he came in to the kitchen.  “Let’s go Lil’ Slugger!” he said, passing the baseball back and forth between his hand and the glove making a thunking sound as it hit the leather.  I turned to respond “I have to start di…” but he cut me off with “Don’t worry, baby!  I’ll go easy on you.”. I stopped  mid-chop because that was all I needed to hear.  I grabbed one of his caps off the coat rack, laced up my shoes and followed behind him to the yard.

Heading Out

We stopped at the open part of the yard and he went on and on the whole way out trying to teach me how to hit the ball. “Keep your head up, legs bent, eyes on the ball and full swing.”.  I looked at him out of the corner of my eye, and waited for him to stop talking and start throwing the ball.  He finally moved back into his pitching position, while I dug my feet in, wiggled my butt and did a couple practice swings.  He called from about 10 feet away “See honey?  Nice and close. Ready?”.  “PFFT, MOVE BACK!” I responded, turning my cap backwards.  He laughed, admiring my confidence but agreed and moved back a little more to play along.  I did tell him he should move back a little more again.. WAY more, but he laughed it off and took his place.

Up To Bat

He threw the ball…  “THWAK!!” went the bat as I hit the ball, and watched it fly over his head, over the fence, and into the pasture.  He blinked his eyes and just looked at me as I straightened my mini dress. “I told you to move back.” I said with a shrug and a smile.

Mini Dress For Success

Speaking of mini dress…  This sweet Tank Dress in Lemon is available as a free group gift at BlackRose with a free group join.  It’s quite similar to the FabFree group gift dress that was shown by Kathryn [HERE], so if you like this one, make sure you grab that one too!

Sizes Available:

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

Don’t Forget The Sunblock

Snapshot_001Hey Fabulouses!  He and I decided to turn it all off for a little beach R&R.  Turn off the IMs, turn off the group chats, turn off the constant blog project in process, and thoughts of future blog projects.  Ahhh….  silence…  just the two of us and a big sandy beach.

Beach Bliss

The sweet scent of coconut sunblock filled the air and the warm sun shone down on us as a misty breeze blew through the palms refreshingly.  For just a minute there wasn’t a distraction in the world that could take me away from the bliss.  I turned to smile at him, and out of the corner of my eye… I spotted an awesome His & Hers Towel Rack behind us.  Wait what? Is that a group gift?!  Turns out, I can’t turn it off for very long after all.  It’s a good thing he was happy to sit there with  me long enough to get a photo!

His & Hers

In the New Releases area at Shutter Field you’ll find the His & Hers Beach Towel Rack as shown in my photo.  The rack includes the folded blanket, sunblock and hanging his and hers towels all with a land impact of just 4.  This piece is copy/mod so you can rez multiple copies and modify it a little if you need to.  I should also mention that there is a His & His Beach Towel Rack out as a free group  gift too.  This group is just 20L to join.

Getting Sandy

This beautiful couple’s pose by Just Posing is called “Sandy” and is available for just 1L on marketplace.

Furnishing – Shutter Field Beach Towel Rack His & Hers (free group gift / 0L / 20L to join)

Pose – Just Posing July Group Gift {Sandy} (1L – marketplace)
