And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails ~Elizabeth Edwards

 Sometimes in life and SLife you just have to force yourself to give up on what’s not working and move towards a different goal.  It can be a a life changing decision or it can be something as small as knowing when to give up on a photography location that isn’t working. I must have stood in the same spot, switching angles, and lighting and poses for what seemed like an eternity yesterday even though I loved the sim I was on – when finally after trying and trying, I had to force myself to move to a different sim.  All I needed to do was adjust my sails to the Yasmina sim, and it felt like it all came together.  I think it was probably just one of those days, but I sure wish I wasn’t so stubborn to try something different earlier!

Love, stop babbling and get to the free stuff

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

I’m sorry for the things I said when it was winter

I'm sorry for the things I said when it was winter :)

Hey there Fabulouses!  It has been a long winter and I may have said a few things I shouldn’t have in frozen frustration, but it’s time to move forward, smile and build up those spring and summer 2018 inventories.

Build Up Your Spring Fashion Inventory

A great place to start is at Z Black Store where you’ll find several free gifts, including the Safira Dress as a group gift for being a member of the Teleport Hub inworld group (10L to join).  The Safira Dress comes in several sizes as listed below and includes a texture change HUD with eight different colour options.  This is a very sheer dress, and I have chosen to add a bit of modesty with a pair of Maai Basic Panty appliers (free group gift at Maai with a free group join, which has been previously blogged on FabFree by me [HERE].

Sizes Included

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ocacin

My Mirela Choker is also by Z Black Store and is available as a free group gift for the free to join Z Black Store inworld group.  I have previously blogged this item [HERE], so you may already have it in your inventory :).

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast

Good morning FabFree Readers! I don’t listen to a whole lot of Nicki Minaj, but I did borrow her quote because I love it!

Scandalizing News

Today I have news about a new group gift at Scandalize!  The other day, the Velure set in black was added to the giant wall of VIP gifts.  This set includes the Velure Skirt and Top in both plain and fluffy versions.  I went all out and put on the fluffy version, and I tried so hard to shoot this photo in a way where you could see all the cool fluff, but it’s really one of those outfits you gotta see inworld to do it real justice!  It also includes a belly chain which you can custom texture (not shown in my photo, but you can see it in the vendor ad below).  This group has a 100L group join fee for those of you that are not already in it.

Sizes Included:

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

The Call of Spring

The Call of Spring

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower, 
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths; 
And ’tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes. 

Sorbet Spring

We are coming close to the end of March, and I’m hoping that the above staves will help bring forth the warmth and renewal we all crave.  I’m just sitting in my green bower, listening to the sounds of spring that are all around me.  I found the perfect dress to lead me into sunnier climes!  I found my way to Sorbet, where there are several group gifts to be had.  I paid 25L to join the group and got this lovely dress.  It brings me a thrill of pleasure, just as Spring did to William Wordsworth when he wrote the above poem (though he did get a bit sad about the state of man, but that’s another topic entirely…).  The Robe Plisée Framboise (oooh) comes in sizes XS, S, and M with an Alpha layer.

Details

My necklace today was another fantastic gift I picked up at Pure Poison, who as I mentioned HERE are really a treasure trove of gifts.  Join the group for free to pick up this lovely necklace (and get yourself loads of other stuff too while you’re there!).   Wheeee!
I hope Spring is sneaking up on you too, wherever you are.

Waiting For My Ship To Come In

Waiting For My Ship To Come In

Hey there Fabulouses!  I have been waiting and waiting for my ship to come in, and if that’s mine – I pick another!

Today in my blog post…

I am featuring a pretty little faded terra cotta halter dress called Thoroughfare at Siss Boom that is currently available for just 60L.  The texturing is lovely and feminine, as usual for Siss Boom and the adorable bow at the back of the neck begs to be worn with an up-do!  The event sales usually switch out mid week at Siss Boom, so my guess is that you have a few days still, but one just never knows, so make sure that you head down there ASAP if you are interested in this offer.  You’ll find the sale items right at the entrance on the wall across from the group gifts section.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody

A Quest for Treasure

A Quest for Treasure

Hey Hey Fab Free!

The weekend may be winding down, and the snow may still be swirling in my part of the world, but my mind is fixed with laser-like precision on spring, warmth and all things connected therein. What can I say, at least I’m consistent.  I found a treasure trove of goodies for you, so read on!

The Quest Continues…

Did you manage to take part in the Flawless Game Show Quest yet?  There’s one day left to partake in this fun game, where you TP to a bunch of stores, answer some questions and at the end you get all sorts of goodies!  I showed you some other gifts I received here.  The whole thing took me about 45 minutes, so it’s well worth it.  Today, I’m showing off the Orquidea Still Summer dress – which is a gorgeous hue of turquoise dappled with sea birds.  It just makes me happy.  It comes in sizes XXS-L with an Alpha layer!  Oh and…psssst….it’s free!

Piles of Presents

So, have you been to Pure Poison?  I’ve been a fan of their shoes for quite some time, picking up their stuff at events.  I hadn’t been to the store though (weird, I know), and nipped in out of curiosity the other day.  Holy mackarel guys – there is quite literally an Alladin’s cave of gifts hiding in there, and they’re all FREE.  There are two group gifts in the front entrance area, one that Astrid showed back in December here, and the other that I’m wearing on my tootsies today!  You can wear the shoes and socks separate if you prefer!  They come sized for Isis, Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass feet.  Don’t just stop there though…. head into the gacha area and take a look at the machines – loads of them have the words “group gift” printed on them, as well as there being a giant wall full of accessories – the bangles and necklace I’m wearing today are two of the finds I came across.  You’ll be accessorizing forever!  You can join the Pure Poison group for free – hop to it!

Phew.  I’m getting a little overexcited!  I hope you all enjoy!

Love In Tattoos?

Love in Tattoos?
Well hello there Fabulouses!  It’s not often I wear tattoos in Second Life, which is odd… because I actually do have a little ink in RL, but I found a tattoo as a free group gift that I really liked on my avatar and at the same place was this sexy black dress as a group gift too.  It’s possible I have just been too lazy to add another layer on top of all the other things I am already wearing!  I am not sure if this is going to stick yet, but you may see me in more ink in future posts.  It was totally a double score!

It’s Always A Good Day For A New Tattoo

The bolero style Lori Tattoo as shown on my avatar (and several other tattoos) as well as the black Perla Dress in one fitted Maitreya Mesh Body size is available as a free group gift at Aurica with a free group join.

Tattoo Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • TMP

Even if you don’t normally wear ink in Second Life, pick this tattoo up and give it a try – It’s free and it might just surprise you as much as it did me.

Steam Punk Nyne

Steam Punk Nyne_001

I always love it when I can bring you free or cheap roleplay styles to add to your wardrobe. So cheers to bringing you an inexpensive look today! This one you can add to your Steampunk drawer!

The look…

This look comes courtesy of Prism Designs and is part of the Steam Hunt. It only comes in Classic Mesh sizes, but it is well worth adjusting your body to fit it, or using those mesh alpha hiders to catch any stray body parts if you must! The outfit includes a mini top hat and steampunk goggles! I love every part of it! I paired it with some color change boots from Pure Poison and I was ready to go! Like all of the gifts that are part of the Steam Hunt, this gift was free and only cost me a little hunting time.

More Hair.

As I mentioned in my post [Here], I discovered Nyne with a friend and its plethora of free gift hairstyles. I’m sporting off the newest free group gift in the picture above. I love how the color change hud includes streaks options so that you can get multicolor looks! Just don your free to join Nyne group tag and pick up the group gift free!

Now That’s How You Celebrate 4000 Days!

Deaddollz
Hey there FabFree!  Dead Dollz has a special little treat for us and I’m in looooove with it!

4000 Days Old!

Kiddo Oh (Designer of Dead Dollz) is old…  4000 days old to be exact, and while her age brings her grief wisdom and grace (lol, I shouldn’t talk, I’m not that far behind her), it brings the members of her inworld group a new free gift!  Fitted for the Maitreya mesh body, Vesper II is a shorter  version of the previously released Vesper Dress, and it comes with a 12 colour texture change HUD!  It’s not just pink…  it’s 12 different colours :).

The Dead Dollz inworld group is 250L to join, but the gifts are top quality, and they come often enough.  The last one was shown by me [HERE] in December.
