Just another day in paradise

Just another day in paradise

Hello FabFree! I’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, and it’s nice mixing in some lovely freebies so I don’t go completely broke! Well…don’t go completely broke as quickly, rather. But even when I’m purchasing things I typically tend to be a bit of a bargain shopper. Come along, I’ll tell you about the pretty things that I’ve got on!

From Top…

This shirt is a new free group gift from Tachinni and the group is free to join. It hangs really nicely and I love the pretty pink shade. The gift comes in 4 sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya.

…To Bottom…

One can never have too many pairs of cute jeans shorts. These are really nice – plenty short but not “Is she wearing pants or underwear?” short. They are from Amazing Creations, a store which has been blogged her over and over. Becauuuuse there are lots of free group gifts up on the wall and the group is free to join. These shorts come in the white that I’m wearing, black, and blue. All three colors need to be “purchased” separately but they are free group gifts so I’m using the word purchase loosely. They also come with a color change HUD but I can’t seem to make it do anything? Maybe you’re smarter than me and you can figure it out, or maybe lag was just getting the best of me. Regardless, the three colors that they come in are sure to cover all your needs and they come sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy and Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy

…And almost everything else!

I love shopping Fifty Linden Friday and the Saturday Sale. Both events are full of fantastic designers selling beautiful things for 50L and 75L, respectively. They pop up here from time to time but not too often because by the time we’re able to get a picture and a blogpost together the sale is quite often over. This week I got my Glam Affair head applier from FLF and my hair and flip flops from the Saturday Sale. I have no idea what’s available still but if you don’t already shop these sales, then here’s your PSA to keep an eye out for the pretties that will be on offer next week!

Feeling a Bit Foxy

Foxy

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After I saw Serena’s posts {here} and {here} and Pru’s post {here} about their discoveries on The Beached Bunny Hunt, I dusted off Ripley’s tracking harness, and we hit the trail.  Our first stop was over at Ink Blots, and it didn’t take the pupster long to sniff out a super cute cropped top that I am excited to share with you.

A Sweet Summer Top 

The knotted Fern top from Ink Blots features a botanical print in soft shades of green and teal splashed across a white background.  I really like its strapless design and the way the ties dangle down in front.  The back portion dips down low to allow your shoulders to catch some rays, which makes it ideal for warm sunshiney days.  I chose to pair the top with some worn denim shorts, but I think it would also look fantastic with a skirt for a dressier outfit.   To pick up this little jewel for yourself, all you have to do is travel to the shop and locate the hunt object, which is a beach sand pail.  The prizes in The Beached Bunny Hunt cost just 1 Linden dollar each, so they are quite budget friendly!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hello July

Hello July

Happy Saturday or Sunday, Fabulouses (depending on where you are in the world)!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  The pupster and I decided to spend some of ours indulging in some budget friendly retail therapy.  After reading Aline’s post {HERE} in which she said there was another free super cute crop top over at FashionNatic, I decided to teleport over to the store and take a look around.  Boy, am I glad I did!

Thank you, Aline!!

The Nadia top is a flirty wrap style sleeveless shirt that includes a HUD packed with a fat pack of 30 textures.  I opted to shade all portions with a really pretty pink floral pattern, but I could just have easily colored the left side, right side, and tie differently.  That opens up a ton of variations!  With neck and back lines that plunge low, and a tummy skimming fit, you’ll be able to stay cool all summer long wearing this top.  Nadia coordinated well with my casual capris, but I could also see pairing it with a skirt for a dressier look.  The package contains versions for mesh bodies only.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the FashionNatic group tag (it’s completely free to join), click the vendor, and select “deliver.”

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Ripley and I are off to wander the grounds of the Mystical Fae sim.  It’s just so tranquil and beautifully landscaped.  I’d highly recommend a trip there!  Until next time, happy shopping.

A Quiet Evening Alone

A Quiet Evening Alone

Hello Everyone!

I hope you aren’t sick of FREEBIES from SLB15 yet! I know all of us at FabFree can’t, I have made a few trips now to gather them all! I have a couple amazing free gifities, up my sleeve for you today.

First off, this dress from ISON is absolutely stunning. It fits my curves flawlessly, and is the free gift from SLB15. This Michelle Dress comes with three textures, a fun summer print, solid red and navy blue with white stripes! Like always with ISON the textures are beautifully done, I am never left disappointed here! This dress can be worn as everyday wear or dressed up with a pair of your favorite heels and be used for an evening out with your girls or that special someone in your life.

ISON- Michelle Dress Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza- Isis & Freya
  • Slink- Hourglass & Slink

Another, free gift at SLB15, is from Truth! This gift is a fat pack of hair and a mask that is included (not shown). You can wear these Kyoko pigtails with or without bangs. This gift also includes a couple sizes for ladies with larger breasts, there is nothing more annoying than putting on hair and loving it, only to find out it just doesn’t work out because of the “girls.” I personally love wearing pigtails, it spices up any outfit in a fun way and adding bangs just makes you look younger. I can’t help but giggle at myself sometimes.

Truth- Kyoko Hair Colors:

  • Blonde, Brunette, Greyscale & Redhead
  • Candy, Jewel & Rainbow
  • Selection, Multitone 1 & 2

We aren’t through yet! Zibska also put out a fun freebie for us! It is a make-up pack that includes eyeshadow and lipstick! This Liddy gift is fun, silly and gorgeously done. Both eyeshadow and lipstick come with six different colors. Don’t miss out on all the fun and freebies to be had at SLB15, it’s not over until July 1st!

Zibska- Liddy Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Lelutka
  • Omega

I have added a few different Landmarks to SLB15 in my post, if one doesn’t work please try another! I can not remember where Truth, ISON and Zibska are located exactly, but I hope the multiple LMs help!

I’m Secretly a Mermaid

I Wanna Be a Mermaid

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Friday!  Ripley and I are STILL trying to escape the extreme heat in RL by visiting beautiful sims in SL.  Today, we headed over to Luane’s World and took a stroll in this flower filled meadow by the water.  Thankfully though, the forecast is predicting cooler temperatures for the weekend.  I don’t know how much cooler, but we will take what we can get!

The Temps Might Be Cooler, But This Dress is HOT!

I have another free strapless mini to share with you today.  This one is probably my most favorite recent addition to my wardrobe!  The Mermaid Dress from Seniha Originals features a sparkly background that fades from a light teal to a gorgeous purply pink at the hemline.  Vertical piping traces your curves and divides the dress into panels.  Since it is accented with a silver diamond pattern, the center section looks a lot like the texture on a mermaid’s tail – the effect is just lovely!  I really like the cutout on the neckline, which allows for a sexy glimpse of cleavage, while still keeping you covered in all the right places.  To scoop up a free copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Seniha Originals group, but it’s completely free to join.  Plus there are seven other free group gifts that you can pick up as well, so being a member provides a lot of benefits!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Until next time, happy shopping!

First Stop: Coffee

First Stop: Coffee

Hey there, fabulous readers! I hope you all have been well since I last “saw” you!

I’m back on the blog after taking a bit of a break, and I’m looking forward to sharing my favorite freebies with you.

But first… I had to stop for coffee.

Summer in Stripes

I’ve been noodling around SL for a few days in this cute summer dress from Ghee.

The Summer Stripes Dress is the May group gift (still available). It includes the belt and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The colors would be perfect for Flag Day or a 4th of July party… or just to lounge around your fave summer hangout.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now. Lounge around. And drink coffee. 🙂

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope your work week is off to a fantastic start.  I wanted to pop in with a quick post sharing a cute and colorful cropped top that I picked up for free.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Rainbow of Colors

My sleeveless top features a high neckline and a hem that falls just above the midsection, which makes it just perfect for summer.  The bold stripes of color are a bright and cheerful reminder that June is Pride Month, a time to promote acceptance of others.  According to bustle.com, the month of June is a time to “envision a future where everyone is respected and accepted.”  I’m happy to show my support for the community by wearing the Ami Crop Top Pride Flag Print shirt, which the generous designer is offering as a gift over at Stories & Co.  The free package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • VTech

Ripley and I are off to do some housework.   Well, actually, I think Ripley is planning to laze around and watch me vacuum up all of the dog hair he has scattered around, but at least I will have company while I do so ;).  There is a reason why German Shepherds are sometimes referred to as “German Shedders.” Until next time, happy shopping!

Playful as a Kitten

Playful as a Kitten

Yup, I gots me another cat shirt!  I don’t actually own any cats, but I do have a ginormous pile of cat-themed accessories (both in RL and SL…) I’ve got cat ear headbands, cat shirts, cat socks, cat rings… I have a hard time passing it all up.  Love pointed me in the direction of this find, and it’s making me feel quite playful, so I pulled out a hula hoop and just did my thang.  Whee!

Chatons

Oui oui, I have zee cats on my shirt!  I joined the group over at Charm for free, and found this really fun boatneck tee dress that will get me through the warm months in style for free!  I particularly enjoy the apt naming of the dress which is “Kittens Tear My Shirt”.  eheheheehehhee…. I can’t stop giggling.  Grab one for yourself, I’m sure it will have the same effect!

Desert Rose

The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Oh, by the way….I went back for the jacket, and I still enjoy it to this day! ha!
