Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

Ski Bunny

Ski Bunny

Well, the snow has finally found me in RL, and I’m not entirely complaining at the moment.  Maybe it’s the fact that it just looks so pretty as it falls from the sky, creating that Marshmallow World we’re all dreaming of.  I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune come January when the cars turn the white snow grey, and slush is pervasive.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts, so it’s time to hit the virtual slopes!

Chubby Bunny

This adorable bunny sweater by Me Sew Sexy will keep me warm on the slopes, and it’s a sweet gift at The Chapter Four event.  Pay a measly 10L to join the group, and pick up piles of gifts!  I literally spent hours unpacking, so the 10L fee is totally worth it.  This cozy sweater comes in two versions:  one with the hood up and one with the hood down, which you can see me wearing in the photo.  I guess it brings new meaning to the term snow bunny!  This gift comes in fitmesh to fit most avatars (Psst – the hood has bunny ears on it!  Eeek – so cute!).

Stock up!

I love wearing cute stockings in the winter, and these ones by Aim Glory are no exception!  How adorable are they?  I love the little reindeer faces!  These stockings are another gift at The Chapter Four and they come with appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Check Meowt!

Pr!tty has been consistently gifting out really amazing hair at events, and I’m very excited to add this one to my collection.  I pretty much love anything which is vaguely cat-like, and so these little lighted ears fit perfectly into my vast horde of cat things!  I especially love the fact that there are several different colour ears in the pack, named such things as “Mistletoe” and “Wrapping Paper” .  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and is very versatile.  Love it!

One More Thing…

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my fave gifts from The Chapter Four, but I had to add in this lipstick applier from Elise.  I love the sparkly look!   There are several different colour options, so you can play in the paint all day long.  In the box, you’ll find appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and TMP as well as System Layers.

I think I hear someone in the background calling me to come skiing.  I’m off to hide in the chalet!  Toodles!

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

Like many of you, I’ve spent the weekend trying to keep up with all the Black Friday sales. My feet are killing me, and I can’t remember where I parked my car, but at least my pixel purse is much lighter now!

Keep On Keeping Up

Speaking of keeping up: I just can’t keep up with all the group gifts at I.M. Collection! Seems like every time I show you one, a new gift gets put out. But hey, I’m not complaining. 🙂

So today I’m showing you Group Gift 12 (yes, there are 11 more), which is this pretty sweater dress. I’m wearing the apple (green) color, but it also comes in gold and orange – perfect fall colors. It is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

I.M. Collection Group Gift 12

More Gacha Garden Goodies

This round of the Gacha Garden has had some really exceptional gifts. I shared a couple of them HERE last week, and I’ve got two more to show you today!

Starting at the top, I’m really loving this gorgeous hair by Pr!tty. The Aliya hair comes in a fatpack of colors in both windy and not-so-windy versions. There is also a beautiful jeweled headdress in 4 different textures in the box.

Last but definitely not least… Essenz has set out a pair of their Barcelona shoes as a Gacha Garden gift. Other colors are available in the gacha machine, so be sure to give it a play if you need more colors (and who doesn’t?)!

Remember, you need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts. And there are SO MANY, so you’d better get started now!

Oh hey, I think that’s my car. Now I can go home and get ready for Cyber Monday! 😀

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Look to the Future

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

What’s Normal Anyway?

What's Normal Anyway?

I’m still unpacking gifts!

I’m still unpacking gifts from the Anniversary Round of Hairology… and I’m loving all of them. I really wanted to share this one from Pr!tty called Kyla with you. It comes in an essentials pack and is a 1L gift currently at Hairology until November 3oth.

This pretty mesh hair is a pretty side-sweep and it’s hard to go wrong with that. The essential color hud includes several natural colors, a couple of ombres, and a couple of wilder colors like pink. It didn’t have my usual grey-scales, but I settled for this light blonde ombre, and was very happy with the look.

Baby got a new top on!

Elegance Boutique is great about giving out regular group gifts, and I love that the group is FREE to join, making their gifts totally FREE. You just need a spare group space to pick them up. Right now you can pick up this Mely shirt as their current group gift. I chose one of the cheeky prints to wear for my picture, but there are some more traditional choices on the color change hud that is included with the top.

What you get with the top…

  • Sizes: Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Textures: Red, Pink floral, Pink, Navy Stripes, Black, Black Cat Meow, Brown Whisker Cat, Normal People Scare Me (shown), and White Cat Meow

It’s Mushy Feet Season

Snapshot_002
Good morning FabFree! Don’t mind my pouty face today… I’m just mourning the loss of sandal season! I call this time of year the “mushy feet season” because it’s when all the ladies are still trying to get away with the sandals they love so much, but there are puddles… EVERYWHERE.  I imagine there are a lot of feelings that are  much worse than the sensation of cold wet street water seeping into your shoes onto your bare feet, but it’s right up there.

Enough of my complaining…onto the news!  I did a little shopping last night inworld and found that Siss Boom has a ton of really cute things on sale this week for 55L – 60L in their events section.  I purchased the Anex Geo Dress that I am wearing today because I was in love with the texture and colours.  The dress and bolero are one piece and it comes in plenty of fitmesh sizes for system bodies and mesh bodies too.  At 55L this dress was a steal.

In  my last couple of posts, I have been showing off free fatpacks of hair that are available in the Lakewood Haven Hunt by Pr!tty, and today is another one!  This medium to long hairstyle tucked behind my ears is called Brook and you can hunt for it too!  This hunt only lasts for 2 more days, so act quickly.

Disenchanted

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulous Readers!  It appears I am not a very good witch as one once said… because the dead is still dead and my cat has two heads!

I suppose I should just park my broom and stick to what I know I am good at… finding fabulous freebies in Second Life.  It’s a shame because I really do dig the hats!  Well..  actually it was free – so let’s talk about that!  You might want to grab a brew and sit for a spell, because I have a lot to share today!

I did a little 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch yesterday as they have just put out a new 22 piece Coven Outfit in their pond that includes clothing items, shoes and accessories too.  The whole set is really cute, but I am wearing just a couple of the pieces today:  The Claire Sweater and the Witch Hat!  I used the Omega applier for the top, but there are system layers available for those not able to use Omega.  You will be able to fish for this set for another couple of weeks!

My Melena Heels are a free group gift at Phedora and they include a texture change HUD with a ton of different colour options.  These shoes are compatible with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies and make for terrific basic heels that match with everything.  The group is 300L to join, however there are several group gifts to pick up once you do that will make it well worth the fee!

Last, but certainly not least…  I have news about my hair too.  This is Pr!tty’s Yeemi hairstyle under my hat and it is available as a free Lakewood Haven Hunt prize in a full fatpack of colours!  This news might seem familiar to you if you are an avid FabFree reader, and that is because I shared another one of the prizes with you yesterday;) [HERE].  As I mentioned yesterday, this hunt runs until October 10th and all 10 prizes are worth searching for in my books!  Happy hunting 🙂
