Forever Summer

Forever Summer

I know I was posting about snow just a few days ago, but let’s just go back to the fields of summer for a bit.  I’m really in the mood for some escapism, and escaping to a field of sunflowers while dreaming of the South of France is where my brain is right now.  I think I’ll find a nice pool to lie beside with the sound of cigales (those really loud cricket things) in the background, and a cold drink.  I’m shutting out the frigid air for just a bit longer, and I’m sure you’ll forgive me for it!  At least, I hope you will!

Sassy

I’m so glad that Sass is on the same page as me with their November group gift.  The dress I’ve got on is kind of a nod to Autumn with the leaves flying around, but the flowers and colours scream end of Summer to me.  You can slip into this dress too – just join the Sass group for 10L (pay the vendor 1L, which will then be returned to you).  Sass is more than generous with their gifts, as a new one comes out like clockwork every month.  Thanks Sass!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Hourglass

Pr!tty

I mentioned a little while back that Pr!tty had two new group gifts out over the fireplace in their shop.  I showed you one, but today I’m showing you the second.  It’s short, asymmetrical and lots of fun.  It also comes in a full fatpack of colours so  you can be as adventurous or staid as you like.  To get this pretty hairstyle, just join the Pr!tty group for free!

Summer foreverrrrrrr!

Don’t stop the disco!

Don't stop the disco!

Dancing days are here again– at least on Secondlife.  When I found this keyhole clubbing dress by Art & Fashion for free at the at the Shopping Market; I thought the abstract pattern looked like it could fit in to any time from the ’70s-’90s.  There is both a mini skirt and long skirt version.  Don’t stop looking at the Art & Fashion booth, there are plenty of other free gifts from other designers there.  Although there is no closing date for the event, don’t waste time because we don’t know how long it will last.

I’ve been on a bit of a body art kick lately, experimenting with new tattoos.  I was thrilled to find the Reverie Tattoo, a free marketplace gift from Boss Gloss.  Although you can just see the sleeves in this picture, the tattoo also has a back piece and some hip tattoos.  It comes in both BOM and omega appliers.

Put On Your Weekend Pants

Oh my giddy aunt, FabFree!  It’s finally the weekend!  I know that I’m ready for a bit of rest and relaxation, and I’m also ready for a outfit update!  I’m pretty much always ready for one of those, but this latest one is what I like to call “putting on my weekend pants”.  And yes – I know they’re shorts.  But that’s what I call shorts now.  Weekend pants.  It’s a thing that I’m so going to make happen!

Keepin’ it Cozy

Keepin' it Cozy

The weather sure is turning crisp these days (I hear parts of Canada are under a heavy blanket of snow already….yipes) so it’s definitely time to pull out the sweaters!  Or even better…time to get some new ones to make the thought of chill winds just a little more bearable!

Belted Warmth

There’s a new group gift at LSR!  As per usual, they’re being super generous with a giant wall of gifts and lucky boards.  Their latest gift is this belted sweater dress that kinda hits the perfect balance between sexy and smart.  It comes with an HUD to change to 30 different colours! Woo!  To get this (and a pretty big pile of other gifts) just join the LSR group for 99L.  Super worth it as they come out with new group gifts all the time!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Best Tressed

The lovely brand Pr!tty have put out some new group gifts as well, which is always something I look forward to.  This month there are two hairstyles on the mantle over the fireplace in the mainstore.  I’m showing you the appealingly tousled Rose that comes in a full fatpack of colours.  You can get yours by joining the Pr!tty group for free!  Yup, two whole new hairstyles for 0L.  Gotta love it!

Keep it Cozy, FabFree!

A Good Weekend

A Good Weekend

It’s a gorgeous weekend, FabFree!  I hope that you’re feeling just as good as I am today, that the sun is shining just right, the coffee tastes perfect and the odds are ever in your favour.   Let’s get into the weekend goodies with a lovely free gift from Dreamcatcher that can’t be missed!

Catch it!

We’re celebrating a Birthday over at Dreamcatcher this weekend!  If you join their free group, you will gain access to 500L in free store credits!  Whut!  That’s so generous!  I picked up the Rochelle’s Dark Soul dress (299L) that kinda made me feel like a warrior elf – slash business woman.  I dunno.  It’s a mood.  You’d better get there quick though, this gift is only available on November 7th, 8th and 9th.   Also, you have to spend the credit before November 30th, so pick up a few goodies while you’re there.   I got three outfits with this generous gift card!

Autumnal Night In

Autumnal Night In

Friday night calls for a bit of chilling at home!  I’m lighting the fire, then burrowing  under some blankets, I think.  Or maybe I’ll get dressed up kinda fancy and have a Zoom Party.  Who knows.  All’s I know is that I am NOT crossing the threshold of my front door tonight!

Autumn in the Air

QE is holding a fun Autumnal Hunt at their mainstore right now!  It’s packed with cute outfits, shoes and even some home decor items.  Each item costs only 25L and a bit of sneaky hunting.  You’ll need to look all over the place in the shop to find these cleverly hidden goodies! You’re looking for a small pumpkin.  I’ve got the Arabella dress on (which has a short sleeve and long sleeve version, as well as several different texture options in the HUD), and the Stacy Booties which come sized for Belleza, Maitreya, eBody Curvy, Legacy and Slink.  I also picked up the lovely carpets and the basket of pillows you see.  Everything you need for the perfect night in!  The QE Autumnal Hunt runs until November 18th, so get yourself over there!

“Gacha” more Free Gifts

"Gacha" more Free Gifts

As soon as I get the notification that the Gacha Garden has opened for another monthly round I get excited for what surprises will be in store.  I already know there will be tons cool gachas to play and plenty of free gifts.  This round did not disappoint.  All the gifts are free for members of the Bellatech Updates Group.  (NOTE: a few gifts are for members of the Gimme Gacha Group, but you won’t know until you click the present box.  If you are wearing the BellaTech Updates group tag and it doesn’t work for a gift, switch to the Gimme Gacha group and you should be able to receive the gift.  Both groups are free to join.)

My first Gacha Garden find was this dress by Romanzin, which comes in a pretty shade of teal.  I had the perfect eye shadow to match tucked away in my inventory, the “Stay at Home Club Set” from Booty’s Beauty (which is still available for free. and comes in BOM and Omega Appliers.)  My next find at the Gacha Garden were these  boots by Art&KO simply called “black shoes.”  Close by I found this cute ice cream cone by Yokai that made a cute prop for the photo.

Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Back to Cool

Back to Cool

It’s back to school time in my part of the world, and I’m always a sucker for new clothes, new stationery and new friends!  There’s something exciting about September, it’s always been one of my faves.  A big shout out to all the teachers heading back to uncertain circumstances in schools, whether you’re teaching in person or doing remote learning, and also to all the students who are heading back to a school building that doesn’t function the way it did in the past.  Stay safe, education land!

Feeling Pretty, Yet Again!

The other day I showed you the newest group gift from Pr!tty, and I’m happy today to show you the second one that you’ll also get!  The Pr!tty group is free to join, and you’ll find this full fatpack of hair in group notices.  I love every minute of it!

Alpha Beta

Another group gift you’re sure to enjoy is yet another you can get over at Alpha Female.  This group is also free to join, so this full outfit is an awesome deal!  In the box you’ll find the top, jacket and jeans, perfect for back to school awesomeness.  The top and jacket combo can be worn separately from the jeans, so they’re a good staple to add to your collection.  Oh, there’s also a pair of boots in the box too!

Hair and nails…we can never have enough, can we?  I won’t talk too much, let’s get right down to the action!

Feelin’ Pr!tty

There’s a new group gift at Pr!tty!  Well… actually there are two.  But I’m showing off one tonight!  The super high and floofy pony called Brittany will have you feeling extra peppy and cute!  You can grab it in group notices when you join the free Pr!tty group.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, so they’ve totally got you covered.

Nailed it!

To make sure you’re looking fab all over, Belle Epoque also have a new group gift of very pretty polished bento nails.  They have lots of different gradient colour options in the HUD and are rigged for Maitreya fingers.  There are some great deep Fall colours in there, so you’ll be ready for the season!  Grab them (and all the other awesome gifts) by joining the Belle Epoque group for just 10L.

See you beauties soon!
