To Tell You The Truth…

Snapshot_001Just calling you all up to say “GURRRLS!  You have got to check out this Alaska Metro Hunt at The Free Dove!” 

You Really Must

If you STILL haven’t checked out the amazing hunt being hosted by The Free Dove – prizes courtesy of Alaskametro even after my last post, I am hoping this one will send you there!  It will take you just a few minutes to wander around and pick up 10 light pink glittery balloon hearts with free prizes inside…  and who knows what else you’ll find.  There is always so much going on there.

In my photo above you’ll see me displaying:

  • #5 – Bette Applier Lingerie
  • #6 – Rouge Hearts Glitter Nail Polish
  • #8 – Black Silk Stay Up Stockings

The Bette Lingerie can be worn all together or panties alone as per the applier hud options and is compatible with the following bodies:

  • System
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Let Your Hair Down… Or Not!

Truth Hawks of Truth wants you to have the choice to let your hair down or not, and he wants you to  have that choice for free!  He has just sent out his new group gift for February and it includes full fatpacks of colours in the Char (up-do) and HoneyAna (side messy braid) as shown in my photos below.  I really like both of these so much, I probably would have purchased them, so I am really glad I had joined that VIP group!  If you are not currently in the group, it will set you back 300L, however based on previous gifts you won’t be feeling financially stung a bit!

I Wear My Heart On My Socks

Snapshot_006Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s a long weekend for me, and I’m taking it easy with a cup  of tea and some comfy attire to catching up on emails, skimming through gossip on facebook and pinning a bunch of crafty things that I’ll probably never actually do.

Pull Your Socks Up

Ok, I’ll admit it…  I did steal another one of his shirts.  What can I say – it’s so soft, and it still smells like him (sighs), but these adorable Lea Socks in both red and white versions are courtesy of  C’est La Vie as they have just added them to the ever growing VIP group gift shelf.  As a bonus, this group is free to join!  These “love”ly little socks are compatible with system bodies and several different mesh bodies as shown on the vendor ad below.

Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!

Spelling 101

Snapshot_007School Is In Session

Hey there FabFree!  In my last post I showed you a group gift by MonaLISA [HERE], and as I was digging through the rest of the items I picked up at the same time, I came across this great business suit that had a real teachery kind of feel to me.  It reminded me that “someone” was picking on my Canadian spelling last week in blog comments posted [HERE] and I had threatened to school him on the subject.

I honestly have no idea why we have different spellings for the same words between Canada and the USA. It’s probably one of those things we’ll never figure out with history going back and forth… Just saying…  I wasn’t wrong!

Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit

The MonaLISA Business Mini Skirt & Suit Jacket both come in S-XL mesh sizes with alpha layers.  As I mentioned in my previous post regarding MonaLISA, the group is 100L to join.

Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On

On my avatar, I am also wearing the latest group gift shoe offer by Phedora!  The Marian Heels have been added in a full fatpack of colours to the ever growing group gift section at their shop.  With a one time 300L join fee, you can pick up several fantastic pairs of shoes that are compatible with many types of feet.

In A Hurry

As Edi mentioned in her post earlier today [HERE], it’s Fifty Linden Friday… and if you are really quick, you can still stop by Maxi Gossamer and pick up their Fifty Linden Friday offer for today.  It’s a little tough to see in my post, but you can buy their Love Catcher Heart Necklace and Earring set for 50L, just today!

Class dismissed!

Going dotty

Going dotty

Help! The weather’s been so dotty lately.

I don’t know what’s going on but the weather’s been acting kinda strange recently. Not so strange that it’s raining literal cats and dogs (thankfully) but it seems as if it can’t make up its mind most of the time. Some days the sky is heavy with dark clouds while on others it’s surprisingly sunny for this time of year and on other days things can flip between the two at the drop of a dime. I just can’t figure it out but anyway, at least I’ve found an outfit versatile enough to keep up with all of this odd weather.

As they say, if you can’t beat them…

Join them! I’ve gone dotty as well with the Lily outfit from MOoH! (it’s so much fun typing out this store’s name). You can always count on classic prints to get you through the day and none are more classic, or classy when it comes down to it than black and white polka dots. Personally, I found that it paired off rather well with the prim cut of this collared dress. I like fantasy clothes as much as the next Second Life(r) but it’s always great to find something that I’d actually wear outside of this virtual world.

As you can see from the picture above there are two ways of wearing the Lily outfit. The dress itself is a sleeveless number (perfect for when the sun decides to show itself) and flatters your figure by being cinched at the waist by a white belt. The dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size so you can most certainly test it out on your mesh body should you own one. If it gets chillier (or if you just feel like rocking the cute librarian look) throw on the comfy, duel toned cardigan. I simply love the little bow that holds the two sides together, as it just adds to the girlish look of the whole outfit. The cardigan comes in five standard mesh sizes as well (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size. Both outfits have their own spiffy alpha layer and not only do they help with the fit, they also ensure that you can wear the cardigan with a separate outfit as well.

The Lily outfit is on sale at the MOoH! main store until the 26th of the month and is priced at 85L. That’s a little over the FabFree price cap but if you join the MOoH! group as I’ve already done (-crosses another thing off the bucket list-) you can take advantage of the free 150L gift card that’s available to members to get this dress for free. MOoH! has a one-time join fee of 100L but it’s a great investment in the long run as the gift cards are given out monthly. If you haven’t picked it up already, the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at MOoH! has been changed out recently.

Heeled and tasseled

With Commander being a bit grumpy recently I’ve had to stay home to make sure he doesn’t get up to any mischief. Of course, that also means more time to poke about the SL Marketplace. I came across these pretty pair of strappy heels from Ferina’s Creations and immediately thought about wearing them with the Lily outfit. There’s nothing like wearing a bit of red with a monochrome outfit to make things pop. I simply adore the detail of the tassel on these heels though the best part about them is that you’ll only have to spend 1L to add them to your collection. Note however that these heels are made for Slink high feet only.

A little bit of bounce

It seems that I’ve been more inclined towards shorter hairstyles recently doesn’t it? It’s nice to switch things up for a change and it helps that there have been not a few great offers for shorter hairstyles. One such is the free gift that Analog Dog has out for the January round of Gacha Guardians. I’ve come to associate wild, fun curls with this brand and the Charlotte hair certainly did not disappoint. This bouncy hairstyle has a retro feel about it, acting as the perfect topper for the Lily outfit. In the gift package, you’ll receive a bald base, an alpha layer as well as an easy to use hud that lets you choose from twelve fantasy colors as well as control the ombre fades and tints of the hair. There are loads of other gifts out at the Gacha Guardians event and you’ll need to be part of the Gimme Gacha group to be able to scoop them up. Don’t worry though the group is free to join so all you need is a group slot and you’re good to go!

Another group gift

Speaking of free group gifts, there’s a new one currently out at Hello Dave. The pictures don’t do them any justice but the Spot Me manicure in nude that I’m wearing pairs up very nicely with the entire outfit as well. Personally, I find that Hello Dave puts out manicures with very interesting designs and it certainly doesn’t hurt that they change out their free group gifts on the regular too. The group is free to join as well so go ahead and treat yourself to a mani and pedi! Hello Dave nails work with Slink mesh hands and some mesh hands that are compatible with the Omega system. While you’re there at the store don’t forget to pick up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well. Two of the sets have been blogged by Kat {HERE} and myself {HERE} and you can get a closer look {HERE}.

And that’s a wrap for today! The weather’s looking pretty dodgy again so I’m retreating back indoors. Oh, but before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Hello Dave group gift I was talking about.

The Panty Peek

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulous Ladies! I have a bit of a sensitive subject I’d like to talk about today. I hope you can put aside my cheek(s) and just take it for what it’s worth!

That Day…

Do you remember “that day”?  The day when mesh was released, the alpha layers were introduced and women in Second Life became hollow?   Men (and some women too!) across the lands and sims fled their homelands leaving their excavated partners in search of  the rare panty peek.  Families were broken, hearts were broken and we…  as women leapt forward taking the big step into the future, being promised a time where garage door skirt prims were no longer an issue.  No more hair through shoulders, or big bulky sweater prims.  We remained strong, and patient while Linden Labs and creators worked together in pursuit of a dream.  A dream for us!  A way to mend our voided bodies put our lady parts back where they belong in hopes that maybe…  just maybe it would bring our men back home…

The Time Has Come!

Ladies…  Rejoice!  The day has finally come!  With the great strides that mesh has taken, becoming fluid and rigged to our bodies, we are now able to avoid those unwanted alphas with some of the newer fashion designs.  Sometimes it takes a little shape adjusting, but it is indeed possible to put “the peek” back into your SLife.  It’s now time to call out to your lover, put on your big girl panties and claim what is yours!

Maai Supports The Peek

Maai is in support of this cause and wants you to have these very cheeky, made for Maitreya mesh Body panties to wear under your dresses and skirts (or on their own if you like 😉 )!  For 1L on marketplace, you’ll receive the sheer keyhole cheeky butt panties as shown on my avatar in both black and white.  My “darling” fingernail polish is also courtesy of a 1L marketplace offer by Maai, so be sure to check out all of her offerings!

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!

In Denial

Snapshot_001
We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

Midnight Lake_002

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

Midnight Margaritas

Midnightmargaritas
Hi there Fabulouses! The other day, a few of the girls and I were commiserating about disobedient dogs (and men),  and decided that we couldn’t solve our problems… but we could have “midnight margaritas”!

It was around midnight last night when I called on the whole team with a “whirrrrrrrr” of my blender to pop into my kitchen for some fun!  I wasn’t able to wake Edi or Astrid out of their sound slumbers…  I’ll have to catch them next time, but Serena, Kat, Pru and Carson all came running, still in their jammies at the sound of “put the lime in the coconut…”.

* Note for those who for some reason don’t know the best scene in the best movie ever…  Practical Magic – Midnight Margaritas:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ihb6FLSh64

Wouldn’t you know it…  all of our night clothes are under the Fabulous 75L limit, with some of them even being free!  Check out the credits below…

ps. Thank you for posing for me ladies and abs!
