Zoltar Says

RowenaMM
I came to the great and powerful Zoltar for a wish to be granted at Tralala’s Diner, but he had advice for me instead.  “Hard work pays off over time, but laziness… it pays off right now.”.  Sage advice I suppose… I should probably take the day off and watch Netflix 🙂

Before I get into lazy mode

I wanted to share news about a free outfit I found at Rowena’s Designs in a midnight mania board!  The Jenny Vest and Jeans Set is the prize loaded into the midnight mania board at Rowena’s Designs (no need to join the group to participate).  It includes the floral printed vest and denim jeans as shown in the photo.  They both come in several mesh sizes as well as the jeans have mid feet height and high feet height options.  The most exciting part about this outfit is that there is a texture change HUD included that allows you to change the colour of the vest, belt and jeans in a handfull of different colours, so you can wear this outfit over and over again in whatever shade suits you that day!

Sizes Included:

  • Jeans – High Heels: XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Jeans – High Heels: Maitreya Lara
  • Jeans – High Heels: Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Jeans – High Heels: Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

Hang To Dry -.-

RowenasdesignsslfoMy stupid clothes dryer broke down last week, and it is just depressing how dependent I have become on machinery!  I had clothes drying (trying to dry…) all over my house for days until the repair man could come and put in a new piece for me!  I am not sure why this never happens in the summer when I like to line dry anyways.  If I put my clothes out now, they’d come back in as popsicles!  Anyways, I’m all fixed up now and have finally caught up with the mountain of laundry I had been avoiding!

While my machines were doing all the hard work,

I had some time to sit down here and find some free stuff for you!  I teleported on over to Rowena’s Designs as I haven’t been there in a while and found a really cute retro style gift out for the members of the SLF&O inworld group.

The SLF&O inworld group is free to join, and once you activate your tag, you can pick up the Anne Marie Top & Jeans as shown on my avatar.  They come in a ton of different sizes, and even include a texture change HUD so you can wear whatever colour you feel like!  This outfit goes on as one piece, so you can’t wear them separately, but heck…  They look so cute together why wouldn’t you? 🙂

Colours Included:

  • Red
  • Purple
  • Pink
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Black

Sizes Included:

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

Easy Silence

Easy Silence

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  Ripey and I are enjoying the easy silence at Borneo Isle while we tell you about two free group gifts to get your weekend off to a fantastic start.  I think you’ll love both of them as much as I do.

Free Tresses

My loosely braided locks, called Tori, are the latest free group gift from Truth Hair for VIP members.  With a full fatpack of all colors, plus a stylist HUD, you have so many options to choose from.  Featuring long, side-swept bangs that frame each side of your face, this soft, casual hairstyle is ideal for a day of relaxing by the shore.   Although the Truth VIP group has a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks generously gifts members with a full fat-pack of a hairstyle each month.  In addition, the group chat is quite active and friendly, and I’ve picked up a number of tips and pointers.   I really look forward to reading the chat messages each day.

Casual Summer Stylin’

At Rowena’s Designs, I scooped up this adorable Angie crop top and belted shorts outfit, which is a free gift for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group.  With a floral print, spaghetti style straps, and a loosely flowing hemline, this top is sure to be a summer staple in my wardrobe from now on.  I opted for a charcoal print and black shorts, but the gift includes a color change HUD for both the top and shorts with 6 hues ranging from green, red, blue, purple, and brown as well as the black.  The shorts feature a buckled strap on the sides and a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  The snug fit of the shorts contrasts beautifully with the ruffled top.  The MGSN Group has no join fee, so you can add this cute set to your inventory completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Kat is wearing…

Mesh Head:  LAQ Bento Motion Capture Gaia

Head Applier:  LAQ Sophia

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Storm

Hair:  Truth Hair Tori (free group gift for Truth Hair VIP Group 0L/350L to join)

Necklace:  EarthStones Eternity Circle Drop Necklace

Top and Shorts:  Rowena’s Designs Angie Crop Top and Shorts (free gift for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group 0L/0L to join)

Flip Flops:  Reign Cali Flip Flops (available at Collabor88)

Mesh Feet:  Slink

Pose:  aDORKable Poses (store closed)

Sim:  Borneo Isle

Tune:  Easy Silence by the Dixie Chicks

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

~Traditional Gaelic Blessing

 Kiss Me, I’m (Really) Irish

I know, Carson already said that. But I’m saying it, too. 😉

My grandmother was 100% Irish, and it was her grandparents who immigrated from Ireland during the potato famine years. I grew up hearing plenty of Irish quotes and sayings, my favorite of which was, “May you be in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you’re dead.” I’m not exactly sure how that works, but to this day, I still hope I can do it! 😀

But hey, enough of my family history… on to the free stuff!

Let’s Get This Party Started!

This sexy, little dress is a free subscriber gift from Nerido. No group space is required; just hit the subscriber button and wait for your gift. I’ll admit that it actually took several hours to receive mine – I don’t know if this was an SL glitch or just a slow delivery system. But if you don’t receive your gift right away, just be patient.

The dress comes in this cute shamrock and horseshoe design, as well as a solid green version, and is sized for:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Wearing of (More) Green

I kind of picked up these shoes by accident. I was hopping around the grid looking for something festive to wear and found myself at Precious Designs. Apparently, I clicked on a Mini Mania board because the shoes showed up in my inventory a few hours later – yay! They are sized to fit Slink High Feet only, but they do come with a 10-color texture change HUD, making them super versatile.

Note: the Mini Mania boards at Precious Designs change, and these particular shoes were not available when I went back today to take a look. But the shoes that were available are just as cute, so be sure to hit the board anyway.

My earrings and bracelets are by Heartsdale Jewellery as a free group gift for The Weekly Limited. Again, finding them was a bit of an accident. I had dropped in at the store to look for a different gift and found the pretty Green Goddess set instead (there is also a matching choker). Must be the luck of the Irish! 😀

Last but not least, my shamrock glasses are a free gift from Boutique 187. No group is required; just pay the 0L. Touch the glasses to activate the resizer.

Enjoy the rest of your St. Patrick’s Day! Sláinte mhaith!

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.

Let’s Talk About L O V E

Snapshot_002

Hey FabFree! I am back real quick to share some more freebie news with you today!  I even grabbed Carson from his evening shopping run (which I am usually not allowed to interrupt) to come and show off a great new couples gift.  As you can see he is already planning his exit with his eye on the door… because …

Hello Tuesday is just for one day!

Carson had just picked up the  A&D Vest & Shirt at the Cosmopolitan Sim location for 50% off – priced only at 100L for today only.  There are plenty of other great stops on the sim with items either 50% off or priced at 50L, so have a stroll and check it out!  You might even see him there.

Stop in at Rowena’s Designs Too

Today as I was picking up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Rowena’s Designs [freshly announced HERE], I noticed that they also had this sexy Gwen dress as a free SLF&O group gift!  This smoking hot dress comes with a texture change hud for several different colours and also includes several sizes for different body types.

Let’s Talk About Love

You know…  I’m a sucker for stuff with my name on it and when Carson saw the new group gift at Earthworx , he knew I had to have it.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Earthworx has put out a lovely decorative Floor Shelf with a potted glitter heart that comes in at just 6 prims.  The funny part was… after it was all set up, I noticed it had 3 couples dance animations in it!  The pose we are in is from one of the three animations.  What a sweet  bonus 🙂  This group is 25L to join.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/28/2016 – Rowena’s Designs

Happy Friday Fab Free! It’s that time of the week again where we get to introduce one of our many Fabulous Fab Free designers. This week I have the pleasure of introducing Rowena’s Designs! We don’t always get the chance to really talk about the awesome designers that generously participate in Fab Free, so I hope you’ve all been enjoying these Friday posts. Not only is it a great way to learn a little about each shop and what they offer, it’s our way of showing our appreciation for each designer. The Fab Free community just wouldn’t be the same without them.
RD Gifts 1Rowena Springflower of Rowena’s Designs has often generously participated in Fab Free events and the Fab Free group over the last few years, and we are delighted that they continue to do so. Her store has grown immensely in it’s relatively short time in Second Life.  Rowena’s Designs offers women’s mesh clothing that is as beautiful as it is affordable. The clothing style is what I would call modern, with enough variety that there is bound to be something for everyone. You’ll find shoes, casual, and formal attire, also most outfits will include a color change hud for added versatility. Additionally there is a wealth of opportunities to score FREE and or very inexpensive clothing. Rowena’s Designs has current store group gifts available at the back of the store. Simply head to the left and strait back from the store entrance. The “Designs by Rowena” group is FREE to join and will keep you informed about gifts, events, and new releases. You’ll see group gift boards, as well as Lucky boards, Mini Mania, and Midnight Mania boards right away.
RD Gifts 2Once you’re in the area, turn to your left and you’ll see more opportunities for gifts, including the fantastic Fab Free group gift exclusive which was previously blogged here by Love Trill. In this same area of the Rowena’s Desgins section of the store, you’ll also find some inexpensive outfits next to a couple of Riot boards. I’m not positive how low the Riot boards will take the price, but it would be fun to find out! So take a moment, bring your friends, and check out Rowena’s Designs. Pack your wardrobe with beautiful clothes by Rowena Springflower. Oh! I can’t believe I almost forgot, once you’ve joined the Designs by Rowena group, you’ll want to head upstairs and check out the several past group gifts that are still available. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Good morning Fabulouses!  I’m popping in real quick before work today to display the Thea Shirt & Shorts outfit that Rowena’s Designs has set out as a Fabulously Free in SL group gift at their shop!  I have previously announced this free gift with their vendor ad [HERE], but wanted to show off how I wear it on my avatar inworld.   This is a one piece outfit that makes it super easy to get dressed quickly and comes with a texture change HUD for the blouse portion that allows for 6 different colour options.

As always, the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is free to join.  I’m including the vendor ad below so you can see the texture change HUD options 😉
