Hawaiian Breeze

Monomania is an excellent store to visit if you are looking for a bargain…  or fabulous free things!  I stopped in over the weekend and picked up the gorgeous Tropicalia Dress as shown on my avatar as a free SLF&O group gift.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so this dress was 100% free.

Go To Hawaii

The Tropicalia Dress is a breezy long maxi dress with an all over striped floral print that screams:

Do you wanna go
Straight to Hawaii
(Hawaii) Hawaii (Hawaii)
Straight to Hawaii (Hawaii, Hawaii)
Oh do (Honolulu, Waikiki) you wanna come along with me
(Do you wanna come along with me)

PEACE

PrismGarageFair

Hey there FabFree Readers!  Over the last few days I have been showing you some really nice gifts that are available at The Garage Fair and I have another one to share news with you about today.

Before I get into the details of my free outfit…

I wanted to mention that it has come to my attention that some of the barrels do not contain gift items, they contain for sale items.  Please take care when you are willy nilly clicking away at the barrels that you don’t purchase something you don’t intend to.  Take your time, look around and check the prices!  There are many gifts to be found, but many great deals too.

Sky Blue Lara

The playful 2 piece set called Lara that I am wearing today is a free gift that you can pick up at The Prism Garage Fair Display by buying the contents of the barrel for 0L.  What you’ll receive is the teeny frilled tied top and the printed denim skirt.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alphas
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Are You A Poser?

If so, you should grab this fun Happy Girl Pose that I picked up for just 1L in the B&G Marketplace store.

PEACE!

Down in Mexico

DownInMexico
It’s been quite a while since I have been down to Mexico, but I do remember the sun was hot, the tequila was amazing, and the siestas were long and plentiful…  Ahhh…  I really must go back again soon.  What made me think back to my visit to Mexico was the latest group gift at Mishchino!

I’m in Stitches

You can find this sweet ethnic embroidered tank top as a free group gift for ladies at Mishchino with a 1L fee to join the group!  You can’t see the back of this top in my photo because I really wanted to feature the front stitching, but it has a cute red bow holding the straps together racer-back style – making the back as awesome as the front!

Sizes included:

  • XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Hybrid Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Venus & Freya
  • TMP

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

How Do I Find Dollarbies on Marketplace?

Snapshot_002
Hey there Fabulous Readers! Sometimes I find myself scanning the dollarbies on marketplace when I have a few spare minutes, because I think at times these goodies get missed in the shuffle of all of the feeds and group news and such.  I find it’s a great way to get in a little harmless pixel shopping when I can’t get inworld too!  I just fill up my cart and when I get inworld, I check out so that nothing is a miss delivery.

How to find dollarbies on marketplace:

First of all… Be careful when you are marketplace shopping, especially for things like hair and skin.  Unfortunately there are a lot of copybotters out there, and Marketplace is their jam.  It is very important that we support the original content maker, and not the person trying to benefit from someone else’s work.

There may be a better way to do this, and if anyone has any positive suggestions or tricks on how to narrow down the search, please feel free to comment, but what I do is this…

  1. Open up Second Life Marketplace.
  2. Click on the category you are wanting to explore on the left hand side.  In my case usually it’s Apparel -> Womens
  3. Scroll down to the price category on the left hand side and enter min – 1  x max – 10 and click “refine search”.

This will bring up all items that are priced in your category of choice, priced between 1-10L.  Unfortunately it does include a lot of demos, but not as many as if you select a price category of 0-10!

To make things a little easier to view, I also do the following:

  • Select items per page 96, so I don’t have to “next page” so much.
  • Select sort by Age: Newest First, which will bring up items that have been newly listed first.
  • ETA: Entering “NOT demo” into the search box will remove the demos from your listing – Tip courtesy of Brinlea

Additionally, typing words like “promo”, “gift”, and “free” into the search box will also narrow your quest for dollarbies down!

My Marketplace score of the day:

My favourite marketplace dollarbie find for today is the Eyk Tunic Dress in red by Sun*Love as shown on my avatar.   This summer chic design could be worn as a short dress as I have done, or as a blouse.  Either way you decide to wear it, you’ll be stylin!  At just 5 little lindens, it comes in mesh sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.

Window Shopping

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  Don’t mind me, I’m just doing a little window shopping on my tablet while I wait for him to return with 5 zillion coffee pods so he never runs out again.  Don’t tell him, but I packed the last one in my purse and took it to work on Friday.  I meant to pick up more on the way home, but you know me… I’m distracted by shiny freebies allllll the time and Friday night was no exception.

My Shiny Distraction

I came across this gorgeous dress by {AnaMarkova} called Jett Harness/Chain Dress La Rose.  It has a gorgeous all over peony print and is laced down the hips for a bit of a skin flash.  It also comes with a body chain that can choose to wear with the dress… or on it’s own (winks).   I have not worn it with the dress today, but it is indeed included.  If you can believe it, it’s a free group gift for the SLF&O group which is free to join!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis

I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Tropical_002

“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch”

Okay, okay…

Okay, so I don’t really have any coconuts, but I found this great tiki disco house called The Revival Disco where I could dance in my new free group gift dress from EvelineInTheBox! I love this particular dress. The colors are tropical and gorgeous and it has a sexy side slit all the way down the right side of the dress.

Sizes you’ll be getting: Standard sizes XXS – L + a Fitted Mesh and a quality alpha for system bodies.

EvelineInTheBox is a great place to pick up roleplay, fantasy, and modern clothes for low prices and regularly puts out a free group gift. Be sure to drop by and get your free Nandi dress before it disappears!

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Transparency_002

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!

Yesterday Once More

mom
When I was growing up, the world was a different place.  Some changes are for the better, and some are for the worse.  I remember it seemed like my Mom was just always cleaning.  I suppose it was her way of keeping busy.  There was no internet, no cable TV, crib night on Fridays, and bowling day was just on Mondays.  Whatever was a stay at home Mom to do the rest of the week?  Often times, I’d find her holding a cigarette in one hand, and the vacuum in the other, with The Carpenters spinning on the record player.  To this day, The Carpenters are still my cleaning music go-to 😉

Fashion Flashback

I came across this sweet Carole Outfit at I.M. Collection as a free SLF&O inworld group gift, and it gave me flashbacks of those old days.  The Carole Outfit includes the mint pants and the tropical printed cropped blouse as show on my avatar in several sizes for mesh bodies.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so you can pick this up with no cost at all to you!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

ps.  While you are at I.M. Collection, make sure you grab the store group gift Serena Showed you [HERE]!

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!
