Flying By the Seat of My Pants

Flying by the Seat of My Pants

Ready For Lift Off

I have to agree with Pru and Carson that something is just not right this week. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the moon, or what, but I’ve had a HECK of a week so far, and it’s not over yet!

To help get over my funky mood, Finnoula (my dog) and I headed over to the beautiful Winter Trace sim for a little fun in the snow. Turns out sledding is a lot harder than I thought, and I was so scared that I just closed my eyes and tried to hold on! Sadly, I wound up going so fast that I lost control and went flying through the air in a most ungraceful manner. Poor Finn couldn’t keep up (or kept her distance on purpose?) and didn’t care at all that I had completely humiliated myself with a face-plant at the bottom of the hill. She ran off to chase some deer, leaving me alone to pick myself up… along with my dignity! ūüėõ

Coming in For a Landing

While I may not have landed on my feet, I was still glad to be wearing these awesome boots! Belle Epoque has set them out as a free gift at the current round of The Crossroads, and you can pick them up for 0L¬†right across from the landing spot. They’re sized to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and the detailing is really gorgeous. There are several other gifts available at this round of The Crossroads, 2 of which were shown here by Carson. ūüôā

Moon Amore has put out this “lovely shirt” as a holiday gift for group members. It comes with a texture-change HUD that includes 8 different colors¬†and is sized to fit Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. The group is only 30L to join, and past group gifts are still available for you to scoop up.

Last by not least, my choker is the latest group gift from CHAIN. Choose from¬†silver or gold metal options with the included HUD. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to fit.

A modern day flowerchild – peace, love and all that other stuff.

flowerchild1

Hello all you wonderful FabFree readers. So, RL has been a little rough for me the past 2 weeks, and while I won’t go into things, all I will say is I really needed a break from it all. It got me thinking though, what I wouldn’t give to be back in the 60’s and become a flowerchild. You know what I’m talking about right? Carefree, happy, peaceful, doing whatever they wanted whenever, and not seeming to worry over much at all. At least that’s what the movies I’ve seen with these types of characters have taught me, and movies are always right…right? In honour of these thoughts of mine, I’ve put together what I think is a modern take on a 60’s flowerchild.

flowerchild2

It all started with me putting in random search words on the Marketplace to find new items to show you all. I happened across a really cute top from Moon Amore. It was the Hey Sexy Lace top in white, and at only L$10, I had to have it. Clicking on the listing for the Moon Amore Marketplace store, I started browsing, and found the lovely high-waisted Vintagmatic Pants in Blue. With the pretty¬†flower pattern, and lace detail on the waist…they were perfect to go with my top. They too were only L$10!. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. I will warn you, the top is semi-transparent. Lighter toned skins will be alright, but I still chose to add a pretty bra underneath.

flowerchild3

Next I needed shoes. I had happened to be wandering around the Boho Culture Fair, which finished on the 2nd, and found the gacha from Elysium with these fun¬†fringed wedges. For only L$50 a play, you get 2 sets of shoes, a solid coloured pair like what I am wearing, and a pair with a cork sole. They are meant for mid feet from SLink or Maitreya. Now, you may ask, why am I telling you about these if the Fair is already closed down? I actually messaged the creator and owner of Elysium and asked her if she planned to put that gacha in her store, and she thought it was a great idea and said she’d try to put it out this weekend. So, if you head to her store and if it’s not there yet, give it a little time and check back. They are totally worth it.

flowerchild4

The last piece to my flowerchild puzzle was funky nail polish, and I had just gotten a notice from La Boheme saying there were new Bi-weekly L$10 polishes out for the start of the month. The beautiful bright colours, and sweet Indian inspired pattern (albeit hard to see in my photo) of the Marakech set, won me over immediately. These will work for SLink, Maitreya, and bodies¬†that can use the Omega applier system, and are for both the fingers and toes. I had a little fun with mine, choosing to do 2 different colours from the hud for SLink/Omega on my fingers. This set will only be at this price for the first half of the month, so don’t wait too long to run and grab it.

So, what do you think? Would I make a good modern-day flowerchild? With my slightly wild hair and being surrounded by nature? Whether you agree or not, you have to admit, these were some great deals, and I can see this being one of my go-to looks.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday evening, or Saturday morning, depending on your location, and I will see you all again soon! Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Playing With My Heart

Snapshot_004¬†Hi there Fabulous readers!¬† It may be Monday, but it’s nothing a SL shopping therapy can’t fix, right?

If you are digging the denim topped summer dress I am in today, you can snag yourself a copy of the Playing¬†With My Heart Dress in a full fatpack of colours as a free group gift at B!asta after you activate your inworld B!asta group tag.¬† The group is 50L to join, but that’s nothing for a whole fatpack of these great frocks!¬† They also have a great midnight mania board prize which is open to everyone, so if you aren’t wanting to pay the 50L group join fee, you can still go slap the MM board without any fees.

I thought these Leather Sandals by Aphorism that are available at Shiny Shabby matched my new dress, spot on.¬† They are 50L per play and you really can’t go wrong with any of the styles!¬† My faves are the rare sandals, but even the commons are fab!

 

!APHORISM! Leather Sandals Gacha Key

Hope your Monday treats you well ūüôā

Drifty Dainty Dreaming

Snapshot

A beautiful dream!

My new Freya lingerie is FREE from Maai, it is their new GG and the group is FREE to join. Pretty detailing, sheer in the right places and modest in others with a touch of lace this set is just divine. It includes system layers, slink, TMP and Omega appliers. Maai is always generous with her appliers. I mentioned the FREE 7 Deadly S{k}ins Aug GG here and that there was 1 more skin in the box. This is the paler skin, marshmellow. It has lovely soft features and is a pretty everyday skin. You may already own it if you grabbed it before if not you have to the end of the month to still get it for FREE with a 50L group join fee.

Snapshot These dreamy Papillon (butterfly) balloons are FREE from Moon Amore at the current round of Collab88. You get several colors in the pack. They are designed to be worn but I rezzed mine for a dreamy drifty effect. At a mere 1 prim each you can rezz them too. SnapshotI happened on this Dreamfield with pearls on Marketplace which was the perfect final touch for my dreams. The bubbles and sparkles drift up slowly. They are transfer only but at 1L a set you could grab as many as you need to fill your dreams with them.

Sweet dreams with Glimmer

A Second Chapter

Snapshot_005

Hi Fabulouses!¬† Guess who else is celebrating an anniversary?¬† When it rains – it pours… and it’s raining free group gifts in celebration of their second anniversary over at this round of The Chapter Four!¬† I am showing you six of them in this post, but there are a good 25 – 30 of them – and the group is free to join!

I’ll start with the goodies I am wearing tonight – At The Chapter Four as free group gifts you can find the LpD Judy Top in white which comes in several mesh sizes as well as the Fishy Strawberry Moto Jeggings.¬† These Jeggings come in normal sizes and curvy sizes – plus you get black and blue!¬† The Bday Octopulpo friend is wearable and is the gift you can pick up that is sponsored by Moon Amore.

Now moving onto the set I have built…¬† The cute little rezzable Ferret in a hoodie is by Birdy and if you love this lil guy, you can play for other versions in their gacha machine.¬† The bag he is holding is the Eco Bag by M.Birdie Story and is holdable for avatars, but I thought he looked cute wearing it instead lol.¬† The double pillow with the sweet little bird on it is the gift by Serenity Style.

If you are an inworld member of the¬†Sway’s group (250L to join), you can pick up the Seat Cushions in a folklore print along with the table and table accessories for free!¬† This is located at their mainstore.

Just two more pieces to tell you about… and these are not gifts, but are very affordable!¬† I picked up the Wannabe Boho Petal Mirror and Rug in an instore gacha machine at the¬†Junk mainstore at 50L per play and if you love eclectic boho decorating you are going to love this set!

I’m off to open up more boxes – this is just like Christmas all over again! Enjoy your night ūüôā

My Cozy Corner

Snapshot_001
I have been having a lot of fun sharing news of home and garden items recently on the FabFree¬†blog.¬† I suppose¬†I have a bit of a decorating itch or something lately!¬†¬† I put together a cozy little corner for myself in the sky and I thought I would share the deets with you incase you are interested in picking some of these sale/free items yourself!¬† You’ll have to be quick… I know some are very time sensitive.

You can find the Zerkalo Beanbag and¬†Fancy D√©cor¬†Table and Frames Set (which you can pop your own photos into!)¬†featured at the current round of¬†Cosmo Sales Room¬†at affordable sale prices.¬† Zerkalo¬†also has their My Father’s Shiny Shabby Treasures gacha machine set up at 1/2 the pull price, so¬†it’s just 25L to play the machine.¬† If I remember correctly – this machine was released at the last round of¬†the Shiny Shabby event in case you missed it.¬† ¬†I am displaying three of the gacha items I snagged (pile of books, pillows and rare large pile of books).¬† This round of Cosmo Sales Room¬†ends very soon on 4/26/15 so if you’d like any of these items – go now!¬† Also – snag their free group gifts I showed you [HERE]!

Fancy Décor has two group gifts for you to take advantage of after you join their free inworld group.  I am in love with the lit Birch Candles which are mod, so you can make them large or small! As you can see, I sort of put them everywhere! lol.  The Black Ceramic Lamp is the other group gift.

I feel like I am missing a critter or two in this cozy little corner of mine…¬† I must get back to shopping!
