Desert Boho

Desert Boho

Happy Monday, fabulous readers!

I was looking through a box of old photos and found this picture of me hamming it up during my ’70s boho days on Route 66.

Lol, not really! 😉

But a visit to The Mother Road sim reminded me of the decade I spent living in the High Desert of California. I didn’t live in a trailer in the middle of nowhere, but just a mile or two from my house you could find scenes that looked remarkably like this one… tumbleweeds and all.

Boho Chic Chick

To create my boho look, I stopped by The Boho Culture Fair (TBCF) and picked up a few of the MANY generous gifts.

First off, my outfit is TBCF gift from Rir Life.  The Bartot Top & Lagenlook Pants are a really fun, carefree look. You can’t see them here, but the pants have a short flare on each side, almost like they were made of big scarves. The top ties at the waist with just a hint of skin showing. Both top and pants are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Accessories

I also picked up some fun items to complement my boho look:

  • My Dream Catcher Choker is a free TBCF gift from SAGA. It comes with a HUD that includes 4 different metal colors for the leaves. Click the choker for the blue resizer menu.
  • My bracelet is a free TBCF gift from !IT! It includes a HUD with 10 different metals and is resizeable through the HUD.
  • Like my pose? You can pick it up as a gift from Stonerella at TBCF. Be sure to wear your Bento hands for the full effect.

The Boho Culture Fair runs through November 9, so you still have a few days to stop by. I could not give you direct landmarks to the individual vendors because you’ll wind up back at the landing point, but you can always do an area search to find what you need. You do need to join the Fair Lovers or Hunters in-world group to pick up most of the gifts –  it is only 1L to join.

BTW, Kat already showed this cute strapless dress by Gypsy Chic that you can pick up at TBCF landing point. Be sure to grab that one, too!

Waiting
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I have a cute FREEbie for the Maitreya Lara body wearers out there. This adorable top and mini skirt combo is a FREE gift at Foxes. Now before I get into the details about the gift I want to say that the gift does say it is a VIP Group Gift for Foxes group members. However, I have been able to pick up the gift just by clicking the gift vendor without wearing the Foxes group tag. Just click the vendor and the gift is automatically delivered. That said, this might be an accident and it could become a group-only gift at any time. The Foxes group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. Now that I’ve got the PSA part of the post out of the way, how cute is this outfit from Foxes?!?

Maitreya Foxes

As I mentioned above this gift from Foxes comes in a Maitreya Lara mesh fit only. The skirt with suspenders, and the long sleeve top with the peter pan collar can be worn separately. If you had the right alpha layers already in your inventory, I imagine Classic Avatars could wear this too. There are not any alpha layers included with this gift. Once again this gift says it is a VIP gift, however as recently as this afternoon, no group was actually required. Just click the vendor poster and the gift is delivered. This could change at any time! The Foxes VIP group does have a 150 linden join fee should the group become required.

P.S. If you like the cute bubblegum, it’s by Pink Fuel. It has been around forever, but is still so cute. You can get it for just 50 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the details! Don’t wait on this one!

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Coffee and Gossip

I needed a little “caffeine therapy” on this rainy (in RL) Monday morning, and I managed to grab Sheidey to join me for some lattes and girl talk. I was so happy to see that spring had sprung at of my favorite SL spots, the Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe.

After gossiping about which hunts had the best gifts, and whether we thought Carson looked better in his Signature or Adam body, I had the nifty idea of snapping a selfie to share on IG. This must have been the laggiest day in SL EVER because what I thought would be a quick pic wound up taking about 20 minutes. Poor Sheidey was so sweet and patient while I fiddled with my slow-moving graphics settings, eventually taking about 3 photos before I crashed and gave up. But I definitely think this one is a keeper! 😀

Make Mine a Venti

Sheidey and I had plenty of Lindens to spend on large, expensive coffee drinks because we had saved so much on our fabulously free outfits! We’re both wearing the latest group gifts from Hilly Haalan: Sheidey in the red Evelyn Dress, and me in the pink Almila Belted Dress. Both dresses include matching shoes.

Sizes for the Almila Belted Dress include:

  • Fitmesh for Classic Avatars
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Sizes for the Evelyn Dress include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project (TMP)
  • Shoes for Maitreya, Slink, and TMP feet

The Hilly Haalan group is free to join. You can find these dresses in the group notices and at the in-world store (along with LOTS of other gifts). 🙂

Take My Picture

takemypicture1

Hello again Fabfreebers! Do you have an open group slot and are interested in free group gifts? Do you like my dress? If you said yes to both of those, than you need to join the Amazing Creations group. My cute tunic dress is one of many free group gifts you can pick up after joining their group. In this particular gift, you actually get 2 versions of this dress, the one I am showing off, and another with a similar black and white print on it. They are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. As much as I love lots of colour, there is something to be said for a great black and white dress that allows little pops of colour from your accessories, to really shine. The Amazing Creations group is free to join, and there are loads of group gifts, for both men and ladies, as well as several group lucky letter chairs. Just make sure you have your tag on to take advantage of it all.

Until next time, TTFN!

Free Dove Has More Free Stuff!! Really!

Every month, Free Dove has been having mini hunts from some of the stores that regularly contribute to them. I picked up some great clothes from Cero Style, and what amounts to a fatpack of shoes from Baby Monkey, and thought I’d show some of it off.

There are 10 hidden boxes from Baby Monkey, you are looking for the white box with the dove on it, and 8 items from Cero Style. Their hunt object is the silver star. Each item is free for everyone, you just need to find them 🙂

Here’s a close up of the Pal Slingbacks, in red. The other colours I did not show off, are Navy, Tan, Ivory and Brown. These shoes come in SLink high, Bellezza, and Maitreya versions.

Almost all of the Cero Style outfits, including 3 more not shown, are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. A few come with system layer items.

I’m not 100% sure how long either hunt will run at Free Dove, but why chance missing out?

Alright lovelies, I am off for now. Hope you are having as wonderful a weekend as I am. Until next time, TTFN!

A Little Beach Yoga

Hello again fabulous peeps! I picked up a fun outfit on the Marketplace the other day and just had to show you. Especially for those of us in the Northern hemisphere, we could really use some brightness during the dreary winter we are going through right now. For an added bonus, I took my pictures at the beach, while doing yoga! That should help make you forget about winter for a few minutes 🙂

A Little Beach Yoga

Doing my best tree yoga pose, gives a good shot of my really cute mesh Elise outfit in the cheery Sun colouring, and comes from a new to me store on Marketplace, called Cysleek. I just happened to stumble across it the other day when I was browsing around. For L$0, you get both the yellow striped tee, and the fun orange parachute pants. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes, and they would both be great to mix and match with other clothing you probably already have. I’ve included a shot with both legs down so you can really get a good look at my pants. I have to say, this outfit really makes me smile, as you all know how much I love bright colours, and you really can’t beat free.

Ok, I hope you all liked my get-away-from-winter post! I’m off for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN, and namaste 🙂

I go a walking, after midnight…

Hello Fabbies!! Happy Sunday. Hope you all have had a great weekend.  It is not currently midnight yet where I am, but tonight found me in a wandering mood, all the while, singing ‘Walking After Midnight’ by Patsy Cline. It’s a little weird on my part, as that is not the type of music I listen to, at all. Sometimes though, you just need to roll with it, so I made sure I had a good walking outfit, courtesy of Get Frocked and Cattiva.

walking_001

It really started with the current January group gift from Get Frocked. My fuzzy jacket, perfect for the snowy weather that has recently been hitting an awful lot of the North American continent, is both functional and cute! I love the red hearts pattern all over it. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and it is free for Get Frocked group members. The group is free to join, so even better! While I was grabbing this beauty, I also saw that Get Frocked is participating in the Black and White Hunt that is currently running, until the end of January. While the prizes for both paths are great, the black path prize really spoke to my black and red look that I had going on. This silky black shirt/dress is that black path prize. It is mesh, and again, is in all the standard sizes. I really like the length of it, as you could go the dress route like I did, or throw on a pair of jeans, and rock the long shirt look. Either way, that super low neckline lends itself to making a very sexy look. As I said, this hunt runs until the January 31, and all prizes, on either the black path, or the white path, are free.

Now, you can’t go walking without a good pair of boots. I had just picked up these sweet  7 League boots on the Marketplace from Cattiva for the teeny tiny sum of L$10! They do not need any kind of special feet, and are scripted for size change, as well as have modify permissions for those of you who like to hand adjust the sizing. If black is not your thing, or you love them a lot and want other colours, just take a look through the Cattiva MP store, as there are several other colours available. These babies make me want to start singing ‘These Boots are Made For Walking’ now. LOL.

Ok lovelies, I must be off. Monday morning comes way too quickly it seems, and I need to go finish up some odds and ends to be ready for RL work in the morning. The weekend needs to be 3 days I think…who’s with me? *grins* I will be back, so until next time, TTFN *waves*

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

computer1

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

computer2

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

Who says there’s a dress code for tree decorating?

So, am I the only one that will sometimes put on pretty lingerie and heels, and then do something like decorate my Christmas tree dressed like that…alone? Well, if you haven’t, you should!

TreeLingerie1

My lingerie is yet another fabulous KittyCatS Advent gift, this time, from Blacklace. The Katy : Red and White set is available, free for everyone, in day number 13. You get every possible system layer you could think of, cute little mesh bow attachments (you get a good view of the one on the back in one of my other pictures), as well as an Omega appliers hud for the mesh bodies and body parts that are Omega compatible. I actually went over to the Omega store to get the hud to set up my SLink feet to be Omega enabled so I could use the hud for the stockings.

TreeLingerie2

Speaking of stockings, I needed sexy shoes to compliment them and my new lingerie. The Lindy Shoes booth at the Wash Cart Sale totally helped me out there. I picked up the Oreil shoes in red, for SLink high feet, for only L$10! This is why I love the Wash Cart Sale. You really can’t beat a great bargain 🙂 There are a variety of shoes and boots for you to grab from this booth, both for SLink feet, as well as system feet.

TreeLingerie3

Now, while you are at the Wash sim for the Cart Sale, picking up your shoes, make sure you head over to the new monday booth for some sweet tattoos and funky face paints. New monday is actually a new project from our very own Julianna Seriman, blogger extraordinaire, turned body artist 🙂 I really liked how the Sweet Rose tattoo I picked up, for only L$10, ended up being framed perfectly with the back of my bra. Like they were meant to go together. Oh, and if you are into Fantasy type RP, you really should take a look at the face paints that are at the booth. You really let your imagination run wild Juli!

OK, lastly, the festive tree I am decorating. It is 1 part of a 3 part gift, again free from the KittyCatS Advent, for day 8, from Zanze. You get a pose and decor set, of which I am showing off the tree and ornaments, the pose that you get is for 2 people, and is really cute. You also get a gift for the guys, and a gift for the ladies. See, everyone will be happy!

Now that I am finished the tree, I’m going to go bake some cookies or something. Hmm…maybe not such a good idea to be in the kitchen and dealing with hot things with so much skin exposed. Wardrobe change! Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you again soon. Until then, TTFN 🙂
