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! 😉

I wasn’t about to head out into this frozen tundra without a good pair of winter boots, and just in time… N-Core put these cute Winter Boots out as a free group gift!  They include a texture change HUD with six colours too!  I have added the vendor ad below as well because it turns out that most of the detailing is hidden in the snowy grass :/.

Beguiled by Argyle

SnatchminaGood afternoon Fabulous Readers!  Today I am bringing you news about a couple of really fabulous free items that I was really excited to come across.  One item is the super cute long hair by MINA Hair and the other is the adorable argyle sweater dress by Sn@tch.

Taking It From The Top

I’m not quite sure where to start because I am so giddy about both items, so let’s just start at the top with the Luna Hairstyle that is available as a free group gift at MINA Hair.  This playful style includes a hairstylist HUD that allows you to tuck your hair behind your shoulders and also remove the bangs and side hair, making it compatible with whatever you might be wearing with it.  Blonde and Essential colour packs are available in this gift so you’ll have plenty of options for shades.  This group has a 200L join fee, and you can find this group gift at the entrance of the store, but if you venture in just a little further, you’ll find a wall full of previous group gift hairstyles as well!

Sn@tching Up That Argyle Style

There is some pretty exciting news at Sn@tch!  Ivey Dechanel has updated ALL of the lucky boards with new FREE prizes and they are awesome!  One of them is the Wilora Argyle Sweater Dress I’m all bundled up in – AND…  it includes a texture change HUD with a ton of colour options.  It fits like a glove to the mesh bodies listed below and also comes in regular mesh sizes and an alpha for those still on the system body…  so everyone can enjoy it!  These are not group boards, so you can just give it a little slap when your letter comes up!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Through Heart Shaped Glasses

Holes in My Heart
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’m back with some fun five-linden hunt gifts from the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt. There are so many cute quality gifts on this hunt. The hunt ends September 30th. For now I picked a few of the gifts to share with you. I hope you like these 5 linden HSGH prizes as much as I do!

There’s a Hole in My Heart

First, let’s talk about how cute this chair from The Artist Shed is! It definitely has an eclectic up-cycled feel. I love the way it looks just sitting in my living room. This 5 linden HSGH prize has a single pose (not shown) and is copy so you can set out more than one.

*Hint – A few shades of grey

So Emotional
Through Heart-shaped Lenses

If you somehow missed Astrid’s post with these too-cute glasses by Kotte, you should definitely check it out here. These detailed glasses with their heart-shaped lenses are the HSGH prize at Kotte. Like all the HSGH prizes, these are just 5 lindens. They also come with a hud that lets you change part of the frames, you can choose gold or silver. The glasses also have resize scripts for easy fitting.

*Hint – That blue is getting me high and making me low.

Is My Skeleton Showing?

I love this corset by The Little Bat. It’s perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Yes, I said season. lol Really, I’d wear this corset year-round. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud that gives you 12 color options for the skeleton graphic. Again, this awesome HSGH prize from The Little Bat is just 5 lindens.

*Hint – I love you so much you must kill me now…

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (XS -L)

Studded Flats

Just like the little black dresses, little black flats are a wardrobe staple. These cute flats by Lindy Modern & Retro just have a bit more attitude than most! They are just half of the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt prize at Lindy Modern & Retro. The HSGH prize includes the flats shown, and a matching pair of boots meant for classic system avatar feet. These detailed mesh flats come in 2 sizes.

*Hint – ALETA  bit of Marilyn goes a long way.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya

Happy Hunting Fab Free’rs! Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

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

Train Station_002

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Just Me and My Bae

A Different Kind of Pearl

Hello Fabulouses!  Here’s hoping your week is off to a fantastic start.  Where I am in RL, we are supposed to have record heat today, which is leaving me feeling kind of wilted, and I guess that blended over into SL as well.  Good thing I have a brand new summery outfit to keep me cool!

My Bae…

While Ripley frolicked in the waves over at Beach Paradise Island, I lounged on a clam shell bed, and wished for a cool breeze.  Clad only in my new, free Bae Jumper from Apple May Designs, I certainly kicked back in style.  In a deep, rich purple hue, adorned with a black bow at the waist, this sweet summer romper flattered every inch of my curves.  I love the added detail of the lace trim, which softened the edge and gave a feminine flare.  To add Bae to  your inventory, activate your Apple May Designs group tag (25L join fee), teleport over to the shop, and tap the gift vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Happiness is Walking Barefoot on the Beach

Oh how I love to feel the sand between my toes and the tickle of the waves as they lap the shore!  Since the pupster and I spent a lazy morning at the beach, I opted to go barefoot today.  For that added bit of pizzazz, I chose to slip on my new free Tribal Ankle Bracelets, which I scooped up as a gift over at Merlific.  The group is not free to join, but this jewelry is so cute, it’s well worth the itty-bitty 10L fee.

I sure hope that you find a way to stay cool where you are.  I won’t be venturing out for long in this heat in RL.  Thank goodness for air conditioning!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
