Alright Spring, Do Your Thing!

Spring is in the Air

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your Monday treated you well.  If not, I’ve got just the thing to cheer you up – how does a free outfit sound?  My jacket, knotted cropped top and leggings all came as a group gift over at the Scandalize shop.

Spring is in the Air!

Ripley and I took a trip over to the Fox Paradise sim and enjoyed the ocean view while we frolicked in the green meadow.  The Elva Outfit is just right for those early spring days where the morning starts out a bit brisk, but then temperatures warm throughout the day.  All three pieces are worn separately, so as the mercury rises, you can shed the jacket and just sport the sexy white top alone.  I love it when an outfit is flexible like that!  Speaking of flexibility, the package includes two different versions of the jacket (the blue one I am wearing as well as an all white one) and two variations of the leggings – solid white and ombre.  You even get a HUD with a ton of options for altering the color of the buttons on the jacket.  To pick up a copy of Elva for yourself, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group, which has a 100L join fee, but there is an entire wall full of gifts up for grabs, as well as some lucky boards, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Paw-sitively Perfect

While we were shopping at Grumble, Ripley wandered over and started sniffing a tiny little pet bed and bone, which just so happened to be the hunt object for the Puppy Love Hunt.  The hunt is technically over, but luckily for me, the prize at Grumble is still available.  For just one Linden dollar, I scooped up a bauble which was right up my alley.  If you like fur babies as much as I do, this paw print dangling from a silver chain might be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit.  Don’t delay, though, because I’m not sure how much longer this will be up for grabs!

That’s a wrap for tonight.  Until next time, happy shopping (and hunting)!

My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

We’re Members Just for Today

When in Doubt, Wear Red

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic Saturday.  In RL, Ripley and I spent some time at a home show today, dreaming about renovations and all the things we can’t afford to do to our house.  So, when we got home, we popped onto SL and found a bunch of free gifts over at The Seasons Story.  I’m so glad there are such generous designers in SL!

Go Red!

Although I enjoy chatting and being around other people, I do have to admit there are those days when I just want to quietly take a walk with my pal and shut out the rest of the world.  The free sweatshirt that I picked up at the Moonstone display at The Season’s Story makes this abundantly clear with its printed message about the Anti Social Club.  This over sized hoodie is perfect for a brisk fall day spent exploring nature.  I really like the casual style and the bright crimson color.  The only quirky thing was the top forces you to have one hand in your pocket, which meant I needed to alpha out one of my hands.  On my Maitreya body, I could only alpha out both hands, so I dusted off the Slink hands I had in my inventory, and popped on the right one.  Problem solved!  Since the text on the top and the stripes on the sleeve are white, I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with white pants, but I think it would look great with denim as well.  The free gift package contains only one version – Maitreya – so if you have a different mesh body, this may not work for you.  However, since the gift is completely free, it may be worth a shot to pick it up and try – you might get lucky!  You have to be a member of The Seasons Story Event group to receive the gift, but there is no join fee, so I’d say give it a go!

I’m off to try on some of the other Fabulous Finds I scooped up at The Season’s Story.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Somewhere in Springfield Wood

Strolling in Springfield Wood

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After a long week at work, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off with my pal.  As soon as I logged in to SL, I slipped into this comfy outfit, and we teleported over to Springfield Wood to decompress and take in the beautiful scenery.  Aren’t the wildflowers in this meadow gorgeous?

Just Right for Friday Casual

My Laura Outfit today is the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from MOoH!.  With its frayed capris and striped top, it was perfect for our stroll through the sim.  I really liked the way the soft shade of blue in the striped top coordinated with the worn denim pants, but if blue is not your color, the generous designer included a HUD with three other color choices – gray, pink and red.  The open top is fastened with two buttons in front and features half length sleeves and a stand up collar.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find just the right size for you.  You can mix and match these separates with items in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, this set is completely free.  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport over to the shop and click the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes separate alpha layer for top and capris)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

While I was typing up this post, Ripley spotted a squirrel frolicking nearby and trotted over to investigate.  Apparently, Mr. Squirrel was not in the mood for company and scrambled up a tree.  Now the pupster is parked at the base of the pine, barking and whining.  I think I’d better go intervene so the woodland creature can get back to gathering stores for the coming winter.  Until next time, happy shopping!

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

My Milkshake
Hello again Fab Free! So maybe my milkshake isn’t bringing boys to the yard, but it should bring you guys to Limit8! This strawberry milkshake, among quite a few other things, is a free Limit8 group gift in celebration of the current Birthday round of Limit8. Most if not all of the participating designers have set out a free gift. All you need to do to get yours is head over to Limit8, join the in-world group (It’s free to join) and click the little brown paper wrapped presents at each booth while wearing the Limit8 group tag. I spotted everything from poses and props, to clothing and jewelry. There are even some housewares.  I picked out a few of these awesome free gifts to share with you. Also, thanks to Love’s much needed and appreciated help, you’ll get to see one or two of the gifts in action. I hope you love them!

Eyes – So after I took the above photo, I realized you really can’t see these gorgeous eyes by NamiiChu. They are part of a set of mesh eyes available for free at Limit8. The set includes 4 pairs of individual eyes so you can mix and match them. These pupil-less eyes have an otherworldly look to them that I think is really beautiful. To get yours, join the free Limit8 group and click the gift box at the NamiChu booth at the Limit8 event.

So Close!

Face Moles – The second above photo shows these cute face moles by Arise a bit better as well. This variation is one of 6 included in the Catwa hud. I think they are not only super cute, but a great way to customize your favorite skin a bit further. You can get this Catwa applier hud by Arise for free at Limit8. Once again, don’t forget that Limit8 group tag!

Strawberry Milkshake – Alright, so I’m a sweet-a-holic, and strawberry is hands down my favorite milkshake flavor. So Pru taking home this free Limit8 group gift milkshake by PewPew! was simply meant to be.  This detailed strawberry milkshake by PewPew! comes equipped with a bento hold pose, which you’ll see in action in the video below.

Booty Dance – Finally, I could not resist showing you this free Limit8 group gift booty dance by Sync’D Motion. Thankfully, Love was willing to help me out by putting together this awesomely hilarious video. The dance is too fun, and well all things considered the song went perfectly! I do want to note that because Pru is holding the milkshake by PewPew! while dancing some of the hand animations that are part of the dance are not shown.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Life’s A Road That You Travel On

Life's Life A Road That You Travel On

Check me out! I’m a biker chick! Well, maybe not a biker chick…maybe more like a bike admirer? Yes, we’ll go with that.

Those Jeans Though

The jeans that I’m wearing are an oldie but a goodie. They are a free gift over at Beautiful Dirty Rich and no group join is required (although if you do join the free group, there are a bunch of group gifts to be had as well). I think a good pair of applier jeans is a necessity in any inventory, and these are fantastic with rips in all the right places. If you fancy your jeans without rips, there are some of those available as well and an assortment of other gifts, all for 0L or 1L. The destroyed jeans come with appliers for:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Phat Azz (is that even a thing anymore?)
  • And if all else fails, there is an Omega applier as well

I want to ride my bike

This motorcyle is awesome AND it’s only 10L on the marketplace. Confession time…I don’t know much about motorcycles, which is doubly bad because I used to be an owner of a bike shop and have many, many used-to-be-awesome-but-now-outdated motorcycles in my inventory. Although to be fair, my ownership was purely symbolic because I was an owner in all of our other groups at the time. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even have perms on most anything. haha But I digress…as I was saying, I don’t know much about bikes, but I know enough to know that this one is really great. It is fully functional and comes with a driver HUD. For 10L. Pretty sweet deal.

Let’s Dance in the Dalias

You'll Never Walk Alone

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day when I was at the Maci shop picking up the two piece swimwear for my last post, I spotted the fabulous Dalia skirt right next to Tropical Playa.  Without batting an eye, I switched to the Fitmesh Fanatics group tag (it’s completely free to join) and scooped up the gift.  With its pink floral motif, soft pleats, and waistline that dips just below the navel, this free mini is perfect for summer days.  Depending on what you pair it with, this little number could take you straight from work to a stroll on the beach….it’s just that versatile!  The box contains classic as well as mesh avatar versions, so you’re just about certain to find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Chilly Gray Dawn

Gray Dawn

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  It was a bit of a chilly spring morning, so I sure was glad to have my new warm sweater and vest combination to wear on my walk with Ripley.  This lovely top is the latest free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Loordes of London, and it can be worn solo as a dress or paired with leggings as I chose to do for my photo.  I love the deep crimson hue of the sweater and the playful folds in the extra long vest.  The free Exeter gift box includes sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body versions.  At first, I didn’t think I would be able to use this cute combination because there wasn’t a copy specifically made for the Maitreya mesh body, but by wearing the Freya style and adjusting my alpha layer, I achieved a perfect fit.   I’m so glad I was able to pick up this cozy top/dress for the grand total of zero linden dollars!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!
