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!

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!

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown – the latest group gift from .miss chelsea. – would be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store – no group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! 🙂

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

Extra Extra Read All About It

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree! I’m just taking the time to enjoy my last day off before I have to go back to work tomorrow…  at least I am trying to.  I just want to read through the entertainment section of The Second Life Times, and my furball is not co-operating.  He’d rather jump around and force me into a game of stick fetch.   While I am here, I thought I would tell you about a really cute dollarbie that I came across on the Marketplace!  Actually, you can pick it up as a free group gift inworld too, if you happen to have the group space.  The group is free to join.

For Just 1 Little Linden…

You can pick up the Flowers Embroidered Dress in both white and black in the Insomnia Store marketplace store, or you can head to the mainstore inworld and join their free group to obtain it as a free group gift.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh w/ alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There are more dollarbies available in the marketplace store, and more group gifts available for pick-up inworld!  Have a great day, I’m off to play fetch!

The Not So Magical Blanket of Snow

Snapshot_005
Hello FabFree… Do you see the look of disdain on my face?  I am now past the “ooo look at the blanket of magical snow, it’s so white and clean” phase, and have moved onto “Grrrrrr rr rrrrr, again!?!”.  It’s so dark in the morning still and that walk needs to be shovelled!  You know that snow spray on the Frosty Returns cartoon?  If it really existed, I may invest!  Maybe someone will come up with a “Snow Roomba”!  Anyways, enough of my complaining…  Maybe Carson will come shovel for me? 😀

I do have good news to share and that should brighten my day, and hopefully yours too!

Sn@tch a Freebie

The eight lucky boards at Sn@tch are free for everyone to use, and have been recently updated with new prizes.  If your lucky letter comes up you might just win the Sacraficial Lamb set that you see me wearing today.  It includes the printed black pants and star top in system layers and Omega.  Also included is a texture change HUD for the top with several different colours.  I have added on a jacket and boots from my inventory, however if you’d like to wear them alone, cuffs for the sleeves of the shirt and pants are included.

If you happen to be snowed in too…

Snap a picture of it and enter our Snowed In Photo Challenge that ends in just a few days.  Be sure to double check the rules before entering and good luck!

Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

Previous Peace on Earth Hunt 9 Coverage on FabFree:

  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?
