It’s Time for Some Retail Therapy

Autumn Day

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  I decided to spend some time today exploring the Whispering Windz sim.  If you are looking for a lovely place to visit, I’d highly recommend taking a journey there yourself.  It has meandering paths that work their way through a beautiful fall landscape.  Before my idyllic afternoon, I picked up a couple of free gifts that I am excited to share with you.

But First, Lipstick

I decided to check out the 18th Round of MIIX Event this morning, and I’m so glad I did.  Right at the landing zone, there is a free gift set out for members of the Hype Events ::: News and Offers ::: group, which is free to join.  The Make Me Matte Lipstick Set from Opulein is compatible with Lelutka Evo and Evo X, Genus and Catwa HD Pro mesh heads.  It features two creamy shades, pink and taupe, in BOM appliers as well as a tattoo layer.   I opted for the blush-colored version, but either one will leave your lips looking lusciously soft.  I’ve included a close-up photo below so you can get a better view of this gorgeous makeup.  While you’re at the event location, you might want to tap the giveaway board for a chance to win a Lelutka or Furtacor gift card and Blogger Room access.  Good luck if you decide to enter!

‘Tis Bat Season

I am a kid at heart and look forward to October 31st every year, so I decided to get my Halloween vibe going a little early.  Over at Mister Razzor Body Shop, I joined the group for just 10L and picked up a free ear tattoo as a group gift.  It is comprised of a small cauldron of bats – or is it a colony?  I am not exactly sure, but I call it adorable!  Created exclusively for the Lelutka Evo X mesh head, this gift includes a 100 percent version as well as a lighter 75 percent option.  I love how it is playful the design is!

Lost in Thought

Weekend Sales

I always look forward to the 60L Happy Weekend Sale, which runs Saturday through Sunday.  With a very reasonable price tag of just 60 Linden dollars per item, you can pick up some wonderful additions to your SL wardrobe without breaking the bank.  Today, I scored the Jola Dress from Meva.  With ruffled short sleeves, a laced bodice, and a flirty hemline, this ebony frock is ideal for early fall, and I have to say, the color is perfect for October.  If you toss in a witch hat and broomstick, it could even double for a Halloween costume.  The folder includes versions for the standard and petite Maitreya mesh bodies.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Lara Petite

Over at [The Forge], I found another Happy Weekend offering for just 60 Linden dollars – a pair of over-the-knee stiletto style boots.  They look like they were tailor-made to coordinate with my new dress.  I really like the added detail of the golden buckles, which contrast beautifully with the buttery soft leather of the footwear.   Fortunately for me, my avatar has no problem maintaining her balance on the slender heels of these curve-hugging boots.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but you can also find the Hellen Boots in seventeen other colors (each sold separately).

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara

Until next time, happy shopping!

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

As Stan reported a few days ago, The latest issue of L’Homme is out. With the Fifth anniversary issue comes a selection of gifts for the readers. To become a member of the free L’ Homme Reader’s group, simply tap the sign at any of the participating designers. Then help yourself to the gifts. Don’t forget to peruse the issue itself at L’Homme Magazine Second Life.

Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Come Sail Away With Me

FabFree: Come Sail Away With Me

Hello there FabFree Readers! A few weeks ago [HERE], I showed you a group gift by Meva and I hope you loved it enough to join the group then (and stayed in it!!), but if you didn’t… perhaps this new addition to the group gift wall will entice you!

About Arabella

The latest group gift at Meva is the Arabella Pants & Jacket Set which is fitted exclusively for Maitreya.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows several colour options for the jacket / jacket collar and pants so you can choose yourself!  This group is 100L to join, but as I mentioned in my last post for Meva…  There are plenty of group gifts to pick up making it worth the fee!

Baby’s in Black

FabFree: Baby's in Black

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  This fine Saturday, I come to you all dressed in black with news about a free group gift at Meva that is fitted exclusively for Maitreya Lara.

Trudi Meet Joan

When you join the inworld group at Meva, which will set you back 100L…  You gain access to a handful of free group gifts including the new group gift for September which includes the Joan Jacket and Trudi Skirt in black.  As earlier mentioned, these two items are fitted just for Maitreya.  These two items look pretty sweet together, but I’m sure they would look adorable paired up as separate items too.

Enjoy!

‘Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

'Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

You guys, the gifts that all of the designers have put out for the 6th anniversary of Cosmopolitan are really nice! I’ve been really pleased with everything and had a hard time deciding what to wear first. There is an easel when you first go through the doors with a group joiner so you can join the free “!!Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge!!” group. I joined the group and was able to pick up a gift from most of the designers, all for free. Here’s a little play by play of what I put together:

Rings

I have to start with the gift from Meva. I was shocked when I unpacked these rings. Not only do I already have these rings in silver and love them, but I paid for them. And now you can get them as a free gift! The free gift includes the rings in gold for each hand, plus a HUD that allows you to hide and show them.

Hair

The hair that I’m wearing is the free gift from Limerence. It’s a super cute little updo with a braid wrapped around. It comes in a nice variety of fun colors.

Top

I love a cute little corset top and this one is lovely. It is the free gift from Tachinni. It comes in a pretty, pale pink shade and has laces down the back that can be adjusted with an included HUD – you can change the colors of the laces and make them longer or shorter. It includes 4 mesh sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Isis.

 

All 3 of these gifts can be picked up at Cosmopolitan. There’s already been a bit of Cosmopolitan coverage on FabFree, specifically here, here, here, and here. Enjoy!

Yeah I’m Free, Free Fallin’

Yeah I'm Free, Free Fallin'

Have you heard? There is a mid-summer hunt at Witchwood! Of course you’ve heard, Love blogged about it here…but bear with me while I gush momentarily anyway. Witchwood is the home of Oubliette and Petite Mort, aka two of my very favorite stores on the grid. When I first saw the notice about the hunt I may have audibly squeeee’d, or at the very least I IMed “squeee.” True story.

The hunt lasts through the end of the month. There’s a cute little tote that you can grab at the landing point for free and then 6 seashells hidden with prizes costing 10L each. Oh and did I mention that there are hints and the shells aren’t very hard to find? Here’s the vendor ad again for easy reference:

Witchwood-MidSummer Hunt

Today I’m showing three of the prizes. We’re going right down the middle row with numbers 2, 3, and 4. The tee and skirt each come sized for:

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

The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. Happy hunting! I might see you there, I still need to go back and hit up the 50% off sale.

Do I look mean in this picture? I swear I’m a nice person, my avatar just likes to make mean faces sometimes. She probably broke those windows when I wasn’t looking too. What a rebel. But she sure dresses cute!

Ricielli Rocks My World

There are bunches of promos on the marketplace from Ricielli. For real, so many. I saw a couple of things for 1L, and lots of others for a bit more but still deeply discounted. The top that I’m wearing includes two colors and is 10L. It comes in 5 standard sizes from L to XXS and I had no problem fitting it without even needing any alpha cuts. It also shows off some killer side boob. My hot boots were a bargain at only 15L.

Boots Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Can’t Forget The Hair

This hair is the newest group gift from Clawtooth. You just need to join the group for free and go to Clawtooth to pick up this super cute long bob in the Essentials color pack.
