Red and Green Season

Red and Green Season

Ready or Not…

And I’m not.

In my neck of the woods, red and green season actually started back in September. I’ve been in serious denial about it, but unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore.

Seems like we just put away the holiday decorations a few weeks ago, and now it’s time to get them back out again. ūüėõ

It’s Easy Being Green…

In this sparkly new gift from I. M. Collection!

Shortly after I shared their latest group gift, I. M. Collection put out a lovely new gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group.

The Eirwen Sweater Dress comes in sizes for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. Also included for Maitreya bodies is an applier for these pretty, jeweled tights. 12 different color textures are included so you can wear them with different outfits all winter long.

Keeping it Short

I do love a short ‘do, and this one is no exception.

When I saw the amazing HairOLogy anniversary gifts that Pru picked up (see them HERE and HERE), I decided to head over and grab them for myself!

Delrio,¬†the HairOLogy gift from Tukinowaguma, comes in a full fatpack of colors and would likely look nice on the fellas as well as the ladies. I love the way the bangs fall carelessly over one eye. ūüėČ

Be sure to stop by HairOLogy before November 30th to see what’s new and pick up all the pretty gifts (no group needed)!

An Unexpected Journey

Ripley, What Have You Done?
Hello, Fabulous Readers!¬† Today, Ripley and I returned to one of our favorite sims – Deciduous.¬† We traveled down a path we had never explored before, and stumbled across a lovely cove complete with a gentle surf calmly lapping the shore.¬† An old wooden rowboat sat abandoned on the beach.¬† Ever curious, the pupster trotted off to investigate.¬† He hopped aboard, and began sniffing the cushions piled in the stern section of the boat.¬† Glancing back at me, he gave me that “I’ve found something interesting!” look, so I joined him.¬† That’s when our curious adventure began.¬† Unexpectedly, the ancient craft unfurled wings and soared into the sky.¬† ¬†While I stumbled and attempted to keep my balance, Rip happily faced the bow, his nostrils twitching in the wind, and his tail wagging gently with anticipation. “Oh, Rip, what have you gotten us into this time?” I wondered.

At Least I Looked Lovely…

Whatever magical kingdom we were about to visit, I was comforted by the thought that I was dressed for a fairy tale adventure in my free Princess Pink gown from GIULIADESIGN.¬† This gorgeous flowing frock features a plunging neckline, delicate shoulder straps, and a whimsical criss-crossed tie that accentuates the waistline.¬† Pale roses adorn the fabric which shimmers in the sunlight.¬† The gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group also includes a coordinating clutch, which I must have dropped in my moment of panic when our vehicle sprouted wings.¬† You can add this “fit for a princess” gown to your inventory completely for free.¬† Simply activate your SLF&O group tag (the group is also free to join), teleport over to the shop, and give the vendor a quick tap.¬† It will be almost as if you have a built in fairy godmother to equip you for the ball.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic avatars with a “feet” and “no feet” verison
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Here’s a close up of my stunning new dress taken after we safely returned from our visit to the magical kingdom.¬† As you can probably tell from the picture, I was quite happy to be standing once again on the shore at Deciduous!

Safely Back on Land
Although I sent Ripley on a search and rescue mission to recover my lost bag, he was unable to locate it.  If you travel to the sim, and happen to discover a pink evening clutch, would you please send it my way?  Until my next post, Ripley and I will be keeping ourselves firmly on solid ground (right boy?).  Happy shopping!

Lavender Skies

Lavender Dawn
Hello again, Fab Free Readers!  Ripley and I went out early for our walk this morning in RL.  By the time we got back, the powerful sun was beating down, and we both knew it was time to head to SL for some cooler temperatures.  We found the ocean breeze and the crash of the waves at Banana Bay refreshing after our desert walk.

A Scattering of Pretty Petals

My strappy Rosse Dress from Kendrasy Creations features an all-over floral print sprinkled across a white background.  Its sleek fit flattered my figure, while still providing coverage in all the right places.   Packed with realistic details such as stitching on the hem, and folds in the fabric, this charming free gift for the Mesh Body Friends group made a delightful addition to my SL wardrobe.  Since the group is free to join, I was able to scoop up this darling mini for a song.  Happy dance time!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The pupster and I are off to seek out more budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Gorgeous in Gingham

Gorgeous in Gingham

Hello there, Fabulouses! ¬†Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to showcase a Vintage Gacha Fair gift today. When we arrived, we were quite pleasantly surprised to discover that a number of talented designers are featuring free gifts at their booths at the fair. ¬†My top today is courtesy of Belle Epoque. ¬†Featuring a vintage pink gingham fabric, trimmed with lace edging, this tank-style cropped top is a summer time classic. ¬†I chose to pair it with denim shorts, but the generous designer is also offering coordinating pink shorts as a gift for shoppers at the fair. ¬†The delicate shade of pink is soft and feminine, ideal for this vintage shirt. ¬†It comes in one mesh version, which fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly. ¬†The Vintage Gacha Fair runs until August 13th, so you have plenty of time to mosey on over to the Path of Destiny sim to scoop up some free goodies for yourself. ¬† ¬†Most of the stalls have white boxes set out, which contain a free present for you. ¬†It’s well worth the visit!

Come gO! With Me

Sweet Bohemian
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way through the week. I hope you’re all doing well. I’m happy to report that I’m quite busy but otherwise fairly fantastic all things considered. I’m also really missing some of our Fab Free family lately. I don’t know what I’d do with my Second Life with out each of you, and my fellow bloggers here at Fab Free. So thanks again and always for being here. Mush and gush aside, I do have some lovely gifts to share with you!

Slip Dress to Impress

Something about this sweet slip dress from gO! must have me feeling sentimental today! It is quite darling on. I love the way it seems billowy when you move while wearing it. This cute dress is the most recent group gift at gO!. You will need to join the gO! group, and wear the group tag to get your FREE gift. Currently the gO! group has a one time join fee of just 50 lindens. The group gift Tamara dress comes in several fitted mesh sizes, and standard mesh with an alpha layer also included.

Mesh Sizes Included: One Standard Mesh size, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya

Amulet

The proverbial icing on the cake for this look would have to be this FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I had a somewhat similar necklace as a teenager, so I was twice excited about this gift when I saw it. The “Gossamer Jewellery” group is FREE to join, so don’t hesitate to pick up this beautiful FREE gift. The Maxi Gossamer gift Tibetan OM Amulet comes in several colors, as well as a long version and a short version. It can also be easily sized with the built in resize scripts.

The Meadow Makes it All Better

Across the Meadow

Hello Fabulouses! ¬†It’s almost Friday….phew! ¬†After spilling my drink on my keyboard (not recommended by the way!), and a trip out in the heat to buy a replacement, Ripley and I really needed a walk across a cool, green meadow. ¬†Lucky for us, we found the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll on the Lemon Beach sim. ¬†I felt the stress of the day fade away with each step on the springy grass. ¬†Now, this is the way to end the day!

Just One Little Linden

While browsing the Marketplace, I came across a sweet deal to share with you today.  My form fitting, fitted mesh mini dress can be yours for just one linden dollar at the Avale shop on the Marketplace.  With a plunging neckline, narrow shoulder straps, and a realistic texture, this dress is sure to be a summer favorite of mine.  In addition to the milky white version I chose to wear today, a texture change HUD allows you to select red or black as well.  I really like the way my shoulders are free to soak in some summer sunshine with my new frock.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Freya

Hopefully, liquids will stay far away from my new keyboard…. I’d rather remain indoors in the air conditioning, and out of rush hour traffic. ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping!

Another Flower Child

Flower Child

Happy weekend, fabulous readers (or, what’s left of it, anyway)!

I think Kathryn and I were on the same Bohemian wavelength, with both of us choosing casual denim and flowers in our hair! My dog, Finn, has been off chasing birds somewhere… hopefully she hasn’t caused any damage while I was taking a nap in my van.¬†ūüôĄ

Causal in Denim

My summery, denim dress is just the latest group gift from Maci. It sports a sexy, tied halter back, quite a bit of cleavage, and is sized to fit the following:

  • Classic mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya (regular and autohide)
  • Slink
  • TMP

My necklace is the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer. It comes in 3 style combinations with 10 different colors for the stones. Click on the necklace to bring up a menu for changing the texture or resizing.

Ah well… naptime is over. Until next time!

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

I Got a Peaceful Easy Feelin’

Happy Rez Day to Me!

Earlier in the week, I celebrated my 7th Rez Day by picking up a few gifts for myself from the Peace By Peace Hunt. This is a brand-new hunt produced by the same team that puts on the Peace on Earth Hunt each winter, although on a much smaller scale.

There are several lovely gifts to find on this hunt, including a few nice finds for the fellas (hey, Carson!). This sexy sundress is from Ghee and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L (no alpha)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Peace By Peace Hunt runs until May 31st. Each gift is 1L, and you’ll be looking for a teal-colored puzzle piece.

Have a peaceful rest of the weekend, fabulous readers! ūüôā
