Tale As Old As Time

Tale As Old As Time

Okay, what do you think of this one? Better or worse then the last 8 that I tried on? At least in SL we don’t need to worry about going back for a different size, they’re all already included in one handy dandy folder. If only RL shopping were as simple. *Sigh* Now that I think about it, a HUD to change clothing colors in RL and windlight settings to fix that dreadful lighting would be nice too. Is someone keeping a list? We need to make this happen.

Nevermind that I match the dressing room

When it’s such a pretty color, surely matching the walls isn’t really a bad thing. This very ladylike and elegant dress is the newest group gift from Belle Epoque. The group is 10L to join. If matching the walls isn’t your preference, there are a bunch of other springy, happy colors to choose from in the included HUD.

And shoes to match

I love a great pair of heels. These are a Teleport Hub group gift from G&D. It’ll cost you another 10L to join the group and you’ll get the heels sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

I Know You’re Somewhere Out There

I Know You're Somewhere Out There

So I told myself that I wasn’t going to post another picture of my butt, at least not this soon…but I love the open back on this dress and how it goes down juuuuuust low enough. So here we are. With another picture of my butt. Good story, huh?

Dress Me Up

The dragonfly pattern on this dress is really cute! It’s just the perfect fun, tight mini to wear about. I picked it up at Entice. It is a free gift for the SL Frees & Offers group, which is free to join. While you’re there be sure to check out the FabFree group gift, which Love blogged here. It’s really nice, too!

Oh, What Fun It Is To Ride

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m back in the saddle bringing more awesome gifts for you and your equine buddy!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Brrr, it’s cold on the trail today, but I’m staying warm and cozy in this beautiful coat. The Kabira Coat is the December group gift from Sevyn East and comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Not only does the coat come in this Christmas-y green color, but with the magic of a texture-change HUD, it also comes in blue, black, and a pretty purply-pink.

Note: the gift I picked up had an attachment problem with the HUD, but hopefully, that is fixed now. If it’s not, just rez the HUD on the ground and make your selection that way. It still works. 🙂

Horsin’ Around

Fergus is back in his horse body today after spending a few days as a stag, and he’s chomping at the bit to share some of his free finds with you:

  • Fergus’s antlers – with holiday ribbons and lights – are a gift from Jinx at The Chapter Four. There is also similar set for “hooomans” in the box.
  • If you have already purchased the Norse Gods Tack Set for your WHRH, there’s a free gift waiting for you at the Jinx store. The Xmas Texture HUD will turn your tack a pretty red and gold with a white blanket. There are versions for heavies as well as WB/QH in the box.
  • The Snowy Hoof Applier is a free gift from CINNAMON. You’ll find this – and several more WHRH gifts – under the Christmas tree at the Water Horse Mall.

 

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Another gift from The Chapter Four is this hair from Blossom. The BMGH 02 Xmas Edition hair comes in 6 different colors and includes the Santa hat. It’s not labeled as unisex, but I think this hair could also be worn by fellas who like a longer look. One thing: there appears to be some sort of light built in, which you can see right under my hat where the hair parts. I could not figure out how to turn this off (no mod), but it’s really not a big deal.

My jewelry is a gift from Elle et Lui at The Chapter Four. The necklace and earrings are included. There is no resizer, but you can do a right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

Finally… my gloves are a gift from E-Clipse Designs. A texture-change HUD is included so you can change the color from black to brown or sand. The gloves are Bento-enabled, so you will need to remove your hands if you don’t want them showing through the gloves. Guys, there is also a version for you, which Carson showed off HERE.

Whew – that’s all for now. Happy trails to you! 😀

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.

A Little Beach Yoga

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 🙂
