Beachcomber

Beach Comber

Floating  away…

Walking along the beach gives me time to reflect and for just a little while, to clear my mind from the “noise” of the events happening around me. It can be very calming to be alone with just my thoughts and to listen to the ocean waves, the breeze, and the occasional bird song. The smell of the salt water and water droplets on my skin make me feel relaxed, just like a sailboat floating along the currents…

When I’m feeling blue…

I’ve been told that blue is my best color because it matches my eyes, so today I found another Cart Sale find at Wash. I picked up both the Free Bird Casual Tee and the Striped Tailored Shorts for just $10L each at the Dark Water Designs cart. The tee also includes a texture HUD for different colors and each color goes will with the pants. I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear to the Menstuff Group. The MenStuff group does have a joining fee of $50L.

The Springtacious Cart Sale at The Wash continues through April 12th.

The Morning After…

snapshot3_001f

But First… Coffee

I love the holidays… but sometimes what I love most is when they’re over! This morning, I was so tired that I couldn’t handle the thought of getting dressed until I had consumed an entire pot of coffee.

And even then, I still didn’t have the energy for pants.

A Poor Attempt at Getting Dressed

So basically, all I managed to put on today was this comfy sweater from WICKED, which you can pick up for free until December 31st as part of the EnMESHed Into Christmas (EIC) Hunt. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L), as well as one for FITMESH. You’ll be looking for a little Santa hat.

Speaking of Santa hats, Christmas may be over, but you can still pick up this cute hair and hat from *ARGRACE* until December 31st. It comes with a fatpack of colors, and is set out as a free group gift (although I was able to get the gift without joining the free group… shhh). There is also a version for men, which Carson has modeled several times, most recently here.

YAWN… that’s enough work for today. I think it’s time for a nap.

That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hi there Fab Free’rs! It always seems the weekend goes by too fast. Other times I feel like I need a weekend from my weekend! Either way, retail therapy always works for me. Nothing makes me feel good like something new to wear, especially when that something new happens to be free! I spent the afternoon picking up a few more awesome group gifts, and I’m happy I get to share them with you.
Group Gifts First, this halter dress is actually the March group gift at BlackRose. You’ll find it in a box near the BlackRose main entrance. Though it is a “group” gift I did not need to join the group to get the gift. Just click the box and the dress should be delivered. Additionally, there is a second equally cute dress included in the gift. This FREE gift is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Hurry over to BlackRose and pick up this beautiful FREE dress before it’s no longer available.

These FREE group gift heels from Empire are the perfect match for the dress. These sexy peep-toe shoes are too pretty to pass up. They include a specific fit for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza, and Slink feet, as well as a color change HUD that allows you to change colors of specific parts of the shoes by choosing between 12 colors. The Empire group has a one time join fee 0f 499 lindens. Upon joining you’ll have instant access to previous, and current group gifts, each well worth the group fee.

Last but not at all least is this studded purse from Swallow. The purse is their FREE April group gift available to all group members. This highly detailed purse has re-size scripts, and comes in several color options. The Swallow group carries a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. The purse alone is more than worth the join fee, not to mention there are several past group gifts still available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – > Asset < Want Hair

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Skin Applier) champagne

Head – CATWA HEAD Annie Vampire *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately 

Dress – BlackRose Myconos Dress Bouquet – FREE Gift

Horse Power

Sometimes… you just need something different.

I love when different also turns out to be classy…

Horse Power

I made a stop by the Spring Freshness Cart Wash Sale Event this morning and came away with some not to be missed items from three different carts. Mix and match is always my thing of course… I love when beautiful pieces come together in style.

One of the carts I came across that really caught my eye was the BiZarre Hair Cart, where I picked up this rather amazing hair and jewelry set for only 50L called “Horse Power”. You get the hair in all its regal appearance, the earrings, the necklace, and a bracelet (bracelet not shown). It also comes in 12 textures with 12 hairbases all in the same box for the same single low price. I love the details and that despite the fact that this hair is really ‘out there’ as far as style… it is still incredibly classy. Though one could use it for contests… you could honestly don it for a formal ballroom setting just as easily and no one would blink an eye. It is high style couture.

I found the perfect dress to wear with my new hair at the Artic Storm Cart. I picked up the Jackie Oh Brown Stripe dress for only 50L and was really thrilled with the style and fit. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and does include a hat. I had to leave the hat off due to my exotic hair 😉  But there is one in the box, I promise you!

I also wanted to show off some of the amazing textures you can pick up from the Timeless Textures Cart right now for just 10L per pack. This is a great chance for builders or photographers or anyone who just likes great textures to stock up. I’m showing off three of the beautiful styles available in this picture. The beautiful wood grain is from the 12 Seamless Polished Wood Stained Pack. The green textures are from the 12 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Green Pack. And the red textures are from the 10 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Rose Pack. There are quite a few more texture packs set out… all for just 10L each!  Go go go and check them out!

My Address is Ninth Ave on the Beach

My Address is Ninth Ave Beach 1

Midnight Manias are the words of the day! And I picked up some great ones to share with you! Can you believe that Moon {Hair} has already put out a fresh hair on the Midnight Mania board? It’s true! This beautiful updo called Ninth Ave Reverie in Naturals 2 is on the board now for you for FREE. It locks down fast, so get there early! You do need the group tag, which is 100L to join, but there are lots of group gifts, lucky letters, and the Midnight Mania board which changes out often, making this a group well worth your Linden!

Speaking of Midnight Mania boards…….. dun dun dun! I’m sunning on the beach in a beautiful new dress thanks to one! If you take a hop and a pop stop over to Total Eclipse, you can slap the Midnight Mania Board there and if it locks down, you’ll get a FREE gift certificate for 1,000L to spend in the store! Yes, you heard me right! You can then purchase this beautiful dress among one of many others. The group is 25L to join, but for this generous of an offer, well worth the join fee.

My Address is Ninth Ave Beach 2

While you are at Total Eclipse with your nifty new group tag, be sure to grab the FREE group gift at the entrance. I’m sporting it above. It’s called Sportify! Bella Tennis Dress and has a sporty feel, just right for kicking back on the beach or other casual attire events.

I’m off to enjoy a walk in the sand. Have a great day!

Spring Liaison

Happy Friday, FabFree-ers!

Spring Liaison

I hope you’re gearing up for a great weekend here on the Grid. There’s a ton of sales and fairs and Hunts and events…. too many to list it seems. I discovered a new to me event -> The Liaison Collaborative. I say new to me because this is actually the third year for this event. In celebration of the birthday, many of the designers have placed out gifts for us. Most are free and a few are 1L.

I picked up my gorgeous new hair from Mina as a free gift. This is ‘Esmee’ and it comes with a HUD for five ombre colors. There are also two ‘chest size’ versions in the gift.

My dress is also a free gift from United Colors for the Liaison Collaborative. This is ‘Moly’ in sky blue. Now, technically this lovely dress is only for Maitreya Laura, Belleza Freya and Isis and SLink Natural and Hourglass. I have it on my classic system body and with a little tweaking it does fine. The dress features beautifully done lace front and back panels and a leather texture.

Spring Liaison

I added a splash of bold color with my free ‘Red Rose’ ring from Ama. The ring comes in both a gold and silver band version and for both hands.

Last, but certainly not least, my pose. oOo Studio has given us another free Birthday Gift. This is one of the five poses in the “Quirky” pose pack.  oOo Studio has done it again with five creative poses that are smooth and incredibly well built. No clipping or weird lumps to be found.

The Liaison Collaborative runs until March 30th. And here’s your taxi now!

The sexy Librarian strikes again…now with Leopard print.

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous time this holiday season. All in all, mine was rather quiet, and that suited me just fine, though I’m rather glad everything has ended. Sadly, there is something else that is ending soon, and that is the Wash Cart Sale! I know, it seems like it just started. So I thought I’d show off one more great deal that can be had before this round is shut down for good. As well, I found a gorgeous pair of shoes in a Midnight Mania that I just had to show you. So let’s get this started shall we?

librarian1

Jan 6th, tomorrow, that is the last day for this round of the Wash Cart Sale. For my last stop there, I had to hit up Luzieefee. I was feeling like my sexy Librarian self again, and the pieces at the Luzieefee Cart are perfect to pull off that look. I went with the Miria belted skirt  #1, which is just that perfect length to shows off my legs, while still allowing me to remain demure, and I really like the belt detailing. My skirt is mesh, and comes in all the standard sizes. There are 3 different colours to choose from, as well as some great business casual jackets, of course, all priced at only L$10 each. Oh, and there is a fun freebie jacket, in a holiday print, for you to grab. It’s never too early to start putting together your holiday wardrobe for next year!

librarian2

Now my shoes….have I mentioned lately how much I love shoes, especially free shoes? I managed to get in on the Midnight Mania board over at JK Trends, and win the gorgeous Peep Toe Heels. They are meant for high versions of SLink ,Maitreya and Bellezza. What’s even better, there is a texture change hud with 18 textures to choose from. I had to go with the Leopard print, Rawr! Now, as is known to happen, the MM board does change each day, The shoes I am showing you, are on the board today (Jan 5th), but tomorrow, might be a different story. It’s really worth it to keep checking back each day, as so far, each pair of shoes that I have seen on there, are just as beautiful, with a very achievable 100 target. Plus, there is a free dress in the subacribo, and  a bunch of group (free to join) lucky boards to stalk as well, so you really need to go check this store out.

Alright lovelies, that is it for me for now, but I’ve already got stuff lined up for another post, so I will be back before you know it. Until then, TTFN!

From Day to Night

I was doing a little writing for FabFree last night, when someone dropped off a package at the door. You know I couldn’t help but give it a little shake! I never did figure out what was inside… but I sure tried! It was one of those “Wait to Open” kind of things!

But this fun pose is one you don’t have to wait to open… thank goodness! I picked it up from the Eternal Dream Poses advent Calendar for just 10L. If you are in the group its FREE (you can also join the group for 200L and then all 24 advent gifts will be yours FREE as well as many future gifts and offers!).

From Day to Night 1

Once I was done trying to trying to have a premature peek into my giftie, I remembered that I had some fashion finds to share with you. I stopped by Christmas on 34th Street earlier this week and found four piles of presents under four different trees (look in the four corners of the sim!) and put together my usual mix and match look! My go to full get together evening starts out with this classically lined suit by [LaVian&Co] called RedLabel Under the Boardwalk. I love the wide belt and striped lapels. It came in all the standard sizes as well as fitted mesh… and if you look in the picture below you will see that you can also take the jacket off because it includes a stunning Maitreya applier top in black for additional versatility. Can you believe all this was only 10L as a great gift under one of those trees? Score!

My luscious jewelry was another 10L score by Beloved Jewelry. This Mishka Set would be perfect under any gal’s tree! The detailing is fabulous on the necklace and earrings and better yet? Color change! Yes! Can you believe it? And again, for just 10L!

From Day to Night 2

I wasn’t done with my gifts yet though. I also picked up this sexy updo by Analog Dog Hair called Enja. It comes in two parts with the bun on top and the curls around the face that fall over the shoulder just so. For 10L you are getting a full fat pack… that’s hard to beat! And this sexy style is perfect for day or night either one!

I knew I needed something for my feet, so I snatched up these stylish White Satin Stilettos for Slink feet by Lowen, another 10L find under one of those Christmas trees.

My pose in this picture is yet another Eternal Dream Poses advent giftie! Yours again for just 10L or FREE with your 200L group join. (Plus I needed some hot cocoa after all that gift snooping!)

From Day to Night 3

Had you noticed how in my first picture the top under my jacket was white? I just love it when I can mix and match! Though the [LaVian&Co] suit comes with a gorgeous black undertop (shown in my second picture) I also nabbed this trio of lingerie by Blacklace from under one of the trees. For just 10L you get all three colors in the gift box and I found that the white looked especially nice under the Black and white suit.

My pose in the picture above was another 10L gift you can find under one of the trees. Snatch up this sexy set of stands by oOo Studio called Winterkiss. The box includes three poses for Second Life photographers.

So, I packed a lot into that post! But I hope you found something you liked. I’m going to get back to the hot cocoa and snuggle up with some blankets by the fire!
