Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!

One Day I’ll Fly Away

One Day I'll Fly Away

Sometimes one just wants to put on something soft and sweet and think about teacups and roses.  I’m in one of those moods that involves spending some time with swans while I moon about looking ethereal!

Soft White

I picked up this gorgeous dress, complete with the beautiful detailing on top (which is just a little see-through) over at On9!  I joined the group there for free and made my way over to the very back of the event, through the door and into the back room where I found this gift.  This dress is sized for Maitreya Lara and comes in both this dusty rose colour and red!  Go grab yours before it disappears on August 31st!  There are one or two other gifts hanging around if you search them out too!

Sorry, no time to chat, I need to waft about gracefully!

Snowball Sneak Attack

IzzieGotMeBeware!

I love wandering around Izzie’s Sim!  Izzie’s is ever changing with the seasons and there are plenty of critters about to enjoy all year long, but…  beware when you walk past this house in particular because Izzie Button herself will pelt you with 5 snowballs before you know what hit you, and then – she’ll shut the door and peek at you through the window, giggling!  I know this, because it just happened to me this morning!

Winter Casuals

I was glad to be bundled up in my winter gear so I could stay warm on the walk home.  I had just picked up this entire three piece “Casual Her Outfit” at #bye in the group gifts section on the back side of the wall just at the entrance as a free Fitmesh Fanatics group gift!  The Fitmesh Fanatics inworld group is free to join!

Outfit Includes:

  • Casual Her Jeans:  Fitmesh XS-XL + Alpha Layer, Lara, Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Casual Her Cardigan (includes shirt too!:  Fitmesh XS-XL + Alpha Layer, Lara, Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Casual Her Ugg Boots w/ Shoe Base & Alpha

My photo does not do this hair justice…

At The Imaginarium Event, you will find that No.Match is participating and is offering the No Justice hairstyle as shown on my avatar as a 50L per play gacha item!  The cute hat comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the hat, brim and also the ears!  (Thanks to Izzy Christenson for sharing her extra!)

The Perfect Gown

Deaddollz1

Hello Fabulouses!  Dead Dolls has a lovely VIP gift for the members of their inworld group!  Once you join their group, which has a fee of 250L, you can pick up the Holiday Gown X Mas Gift that is shown on my avatar today.  This dress is Maitreya Mesh Body specific and comes with a texture change hud that allows for the six colour options (plus you can mix and match the skirt / top colours!) and two belt options as listed below.

  • White
  • Black
  • Blush
  • Red
  • Navy Blue
  • Light Blue
  • Belt – Gold / Silver

Rigged To Perfection

This dress truly is the perfect gown as the delicate lacy top is perfectly rigged close to the skin without body parts poking out during movement and the sheer lace shows just enough to be sultry but not too risque for those on the shy side.  Not only the top is amazing, however the bottom is too with the long slender satiny skirt featuring a sexy lower back dip that shows off a little cheek peek.

Deaddollz2To sum things up…

If you are not in this group – get in it!  This gown is worth the fee if you have the Maitreya Lara Body.  They do gives a few times a year, so it puts you on the list for future gifts too.

The Heiress

The Heiress

TGIF, fabulous readers! A few days ago, I paid a visit to On9 and found BUNCHES of gifts set out from the vendors for this round. I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here today.

NOTE: To pick up these gifts, you will need to head over to On9 and join the free in-world group.

Take Back Your Mink

Just kidding, don’t you dare! 

When I put on this gorgeous satin dress with the mink jacket, I felt sort of Paris Hilton-y, so that’s where the name for this post came from. 😉

The Marlena dress and jacket is the On9 gift from AnaMarkova. It comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The dress and jacket are separate pieces, so you could wear the dress without the jacket, or wear the jacket with another outfit if you choose. I like versatility. 🙂

Dressed to Impress… With FREE Gifts

The fashionable AnaMarkova dress isn’t the only On9 gift I’m wearing today. Here are a few more!

ICONIC’s gift is a generous pack of hair. Katherine includes 6 color packs, as well as a styler HUD so you can choose from 2 different styles.

HAYSURIZA is gifting a huge set of pearl jewelry. The set includes:

  • Necklace* (includes optional add-on decoration)
  • Bracelet (optional add-on decoration)
  • Earrings for day wear*
  • Earrings for evening wear
  • Choker
  • Ring* (2 options)

* The asterisked items are the ones I’m wearing in this photo.

So Sparkly

The final On9 gift I’m sharing today is this glittery nail palette from Alaskametro<3.

alaskametro<3 "New Years" nail appliers (black/copper) for on9 - gift

Mani/pedi appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled hands are included. You can apply all the same color or a mix of all five if you prefer. The Maitreya HUD has a button to apply a mix of all the colors.

A girl really can’t have too much glitter, can she? ❤

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown – the latest group gift from .miss chelsea. – would be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store – no group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! 🙂

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

skater8_001f

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! 😛

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. 🙂

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the free group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. 😀

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!
