IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

I Got a Peaceful Easy Feelin’

peace9_001f

Happy Rez Day to Me!

Earlier in the week, I celebrated my 7th Rez Day by picking up a few gifts for myself from the Peace By Peace Hunt. This is a brand-new hunt produced by the same team that puts on the Peace on Earth Hunt each winter, although on a much smaller scale.

There are several lovely gifts to find on this hunt, including a few nice finds for the fellas (hey, Carson!). This sexy sundress is from Ghee and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L (no alpha)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Peace By Peace Hunt runs until May 31st. Each gift is 1L, and you’ll be looking for a teal-colored puzzle piece.

Have a peaceful rest of the weekend, fabulous readers! 🙂

Let the Rain Kiss You

spring showers

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I got caught out in a spring shower while exploring the One Caress sim, but fortunately, it was a warm, gentle sprinkle.  While the pupster splashed merrily in the watery world, I tilted my chin upward, and enjoyed the kiss of rain drops.

A Sweetheart of a Deal

My strapless fuschia mini dress is a free gift at Xtravagance.  I love the piping along the bodice, the way it hugs my curves, and the heart-dotted leather with a subtle sheen.  A variety of textures on the frock provide just the right amount of visual interest.  Since the package includes appliers for numerous mesh bodies, plus mesh for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit!  Best of all, the Carmele dress is completely free, with no group required.  Simply teleport to Xtravagance, click the sign, and pay a whopping zero lindens to add this saucy number to your inventory.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Isis, Venus Ebody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Seeking Sunshine After the Rain

Not long after I snapped this picture, my playful pup bounded toward me, plowed a wave of water up over my toes, shook himself thoroughly, and drenched me with a cascade of droplets.   Time to seek out a thirsty towel and some rays before I catch a cold.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Have Some Compassion

FinaleCoutureLWPose
Well hello there FabFree Readers!  As I was puttering around in the yard over the weekend, I noticed that  family of cats has made a home in the shed.   I’ll need to get them vet checked and find them good homes, but I think I will keep this little snuggly one for myself.  I’m sure he won’t mind if I bring in just one more little pet, right?

Step Into My Pose

If you’d like to pose with the family of cats, take a trip over to LW Poses and join their inworld group.  This group is free to join and once you do, you can pick up the Compassion for Animals Pose as shown in my photo :).

You Won’t Believe It, But My Outfit Is 10L!

The Springtacious Cart Sale @ The Wash has begun and the streets are lined with 10L displays set out by some amazing designers from far and wide!  I picked up the Becca Outfit that includes the jean shorts, tank top and plaid shirt ALL for just 10L on the Finale Couture display.  In the folder you’ll find XS-L mesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layers for each article of clothing.

Note:  Wear a smaller size in the tank top than you do for the shirt so it doesn’t show through the outer shirt.

G L O R I A

VeronicaHello There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend was a fun one. I had a fantastic weekend, and now I’m happy to be here where I get to share my latest freebie find with you. The credit for this find should really go to Love however. She spotted the outfit at Sn@tch during one of her recent shopping excursions and told me about it. She knows me so well! I do love retro pinup styles, especially when they are a little sassy like this one.

Why be a Betty When You Can be a Veronica? 

Okay so really I think Betty was just as awesome as Veronica, and Archie was lucky either of them paid him any attention! This outfit just screamed Veronica to me, even though it’s name is Gloria. Before I go off on a tangent about the dynamics of the Betty, Veronica, Archie love triangle and confuse everyone further, I’ll just get to the details. The fully mesh Gloria outfit is absolutely FREE at Sn@tch. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag, just head over to  Sn@tch and check out the FREEbie area Love mentioned in her recent post “A Whole New Sn@tch“. In the box you’ll get the capri pants, the cardigan, and a cardigan/tank top combo in 5 standard mesh sizes, and of course the matching alpha layers. Additionally the cardigan/tank combo comes with the tank top in black or red. Sn@tch your FREE outfit, and tons of other fantastic freebies and inexpensive items at the new Sn@tch main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – *Besom~ Debrossi *Essentials*

A cure for rain

Renard

Rain, rain go away

Nursery rhymes are rather common in my real life day to day and that particular one has been a ‘fan favorite’ as of late probably due to the fact that it’s been drizzling or outright storming off and on this entire week. To escape, I’ve been traversing through the sunniest sims I could find and it’s pretty fortunate that there are some great deals at the moment to help make my travels a whole lot less costly. Since I’ve been finding my (virtual) self on the uneven ground of the great outdoors more often than not, I thought it prudent to take advantage of the newest group gift from Reign. The Arianna sneakers are not only gorgeous and great quality two hallmarks that I’ve come to associate with Reign but the gift package also includes two different style variations if you’re wearing them for flat mesh feet and a size that fits mesh high feet as well. As someone who hasn’t gotten around to getting flat feet, it was nice to be able to slip on some sneakers for a change on my Slinks.

Here’s a rundown of styles and compatible mesh feet included in the gift package:

  • Belleza mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Belleza Flat) Trippies (for Belleza High)
  • Maitreya mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Maitreya Flat) Trippies (for Maitreya High)
  • Slink mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Slink Flat) Trippies (for Slink High)
  • TMP mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for TMP bare) Trippies (for TMP Ouch)

If you’re wondering what the style variations are for the flat feet it’s between wearing your sneakers normally, and simply slipping them on to leave the ends folded up under your heel. It’s a nice, slouchy detail to be sure. The gift package also includes a hud that allows you to choose between three different colors schemes (red with white hearts, white with black hearts and black with white hearts) for the body of your shoes as well as the laces (choice of three colors) and the sole of the shoe (choice of two colors)

The Reign group has a joining fee of 250L however you can still pick up older group gifts while you’re there.

Welcome addition

It’s certainly a good idea to stock up on those comfy clothes now that I’m nursing a bad case of wanderlust, though truth be told I would have snapped up this lovely pair of denim shorts from Ibela Store on the Marketplace anyway. There’s a serious lack of shorts or even pants in my inventory (or maybe they’re just hidden under the mountains of pet food) so the Mina shorts with it’s high waist and faded wash are certainly a welcome addition. Priced at only 1L, I was pretty glad that I didn’t have to break the bank too.

Sizing details:

  • Five Standard Mesh sizes (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer for classic avatars.
  • One size for the Slink Physique mesh body.
  • One size for the Maitreya mesh body.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to go spend my time with these two cuties, they’re pretty convinced I’m one of them. I’ll leave with a close up picture of the Arianna Sneakers to give you a better picture of what the style variations are. Have fun out there guys!

Just One Day

Snapshot_001A Shadow In The Night

Good evening FabFree Readers!  As I was sitting down to dinner tonight, I noticed one of my pups (Shadow) was missing.  I wasn’t all that surprised…  often I find him on Serena’s doorstep all googley eyed, peering in the window while one of her dogs peers back out.  With the help of a trusty flashlight that I was able to pick up at Ironwood Hills for free at their landing point, I caught him about half way to Serena’s and boy was he disappointed.  Back to the dog house with you Shadow!

About My Dog Chasing Outfit

A Silly Little Thing Called Love

Silly

Inspiring the uninspired…

While I was rummaging through my folder of items yet to post, I came across the latest FREE group gift from Signature Pose. Silly is a couples pose, so I called up Love, who was feeling uninspired by her own photo shoot, and she came over (after stopping for an outfit of her own to show).  The Signature Pose Group is FREE to join.

What she’s wearing…

Love wanted me to make sure I talked about her outfit. She even wrote it down for me so I wouldn’t forget. (tl:dr  I lost the notecard and is going to wing it.) The Brigit Top & Capris by Rowena’s Designs is a FREE group gift to SLF&O members. I do remember Love mentioning that there is a texture changing HUD for both the tank top and the crop top. The SLF&O group is FREE to join.

What he’s wearing…

There is a new gift out in the Menstuff Lounge. The Mesh Spilled Paint Open Hoodie by Ruca Tease is FREE to Menstuff members. The hoodie comes in sizes XS- XL. The group does have a $50L join fee.  I hope everyone takes a moment today to feel inspired and be silly.

Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice – Simple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!
