Take Time to Stop and Smell the Roses

A Single Rose

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  It’s a three day weekend where I am in RL, and I sure am looking forward to it.  I have a lot of little projects that I’ve been putting off around the house, but I’m also eager to share some more Fabulous Finds with you all.  Ripley and I will head out to wander the grid, and search for some budget friendly fashions to blog.

Happiness is Receiving a Love Letter

Although I spent the recent holiday cuddled up with my favorite canine pal, I still had a love letter delivered right to my inbox……the Addison Love Letter Dress from Ecce Bellus, that is.  With beautifully handwritten text adorning the bodice, a slender belt to accentuate your waistline, and a solid skirt that falls to mid thigh, this bright and cheery frock is sure to look adorable on your avatar.  The free gift box for members of Fabulously Free in SL includes the red option I am wearing in my picture as well as one with a white top.  Both come in mesh for classic avatars and versions for mesh bodies, so this is a versatile outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

 

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Skin Me

LAQ Valentine
Good morning FabFree Readers! Just a quick little shot from me today to share news about a beautiful new group gift from LAQ!

Give Me Some Skin!

Back in December, I posted that I had picked up the LAQ Neve Bento Motion Capture Head while it was on promo and I do on occasion wear it inworld and am glad I made the purchase because after some shape tweaking I was able to make her “feel like me”.  Yesterday for Valentine’s Day, LAQ announced that they had placed out a new free group gift for it’s inworld VIPS (FREE TO JOIN!), and that gift is the Valentine Skin head appliers, specifically for LAQ Bento Motion Capture Heads.

LAQ Valentine Skin Details:

This skin is lightly freckled with rosy cheeks and glossed lips making it a fantastic, wear every day base skin that would even be suitable for makeup layering!  The HUD included allows for several different skin tones as well as a browless option so that you can add your own.  Matching body appliers are not included with this gift, however they are currently on sale at very low prices (between 15-25L for ALL the skin tones) for several different body styles.

This gift is a limited time offer, available in store until February 18th.

ps.  I don’t have Scarlet, but I bet this skin looks great on her too!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

No Love

No Love
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m just going to come right out and say it, there are days when I really wish I could wear this shirt to work irl. Just sayin’! Generally speaking I enjoy my coworkers, but every workplace has a few that you just tolerate. The top and septum piercing Pru is wearing are both current group gifts.

The Shirt – This sassy tied top is a FREE group gift at Trashed. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for non-mesh avatars. I think it’s the perfect passive aggressive anti-Valentine’s Day shirt. The Trashed group is FREE to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Ocacin

The Piercing – I think half the reason I love septum piercings in Second Life is that I could never pull one off in real life. This pretty heart septum piercing is a FREE group gift at Empyrean Forge. The Empyrean Forge group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are other previous group gifts still available. This piercing includes a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of individual parts of the jewelry.

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

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

.miss chelsea. judi top - group gift out now!

The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to join, but on the desk you’ll find several past group gifts still available, many of which shown here on FabFree!

Short Cut

The free gifts don’t stop there!  These sweet Sporty Shorts by Pixicat come in two love themed prints and are FREE at The Shop Your Heart Out Event!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus & Freya

Happy Valentine’s Day ❤

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Chase Away Those Blues

Bluetiful

Hello there, Fabulouses.  Boy, have Ripley and I found a sexy number to share with you tonight to help ease any mid-week blues you might have!  With a side slit that travels up, up, up, and a plunging neckline, the Althea Slit Dress from the YM Shop is sure to draw eyes your way.  Its dark navy tone and long sleeves contrast beautifully with the sexy glimpse of skin revealed in the view from the side.  With sizes for classic avatars, plus mesh body versions, this outfit is sure to fit almost any everyone.  The best part is that you can pick up this curve-hugging gown for free as a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  Simply activate your tag, teleport to the store, and click the vendor.  Actually, there are *two* free female gifts for Fab Free group members in the shop.  I blogged the Dandy Outfit in my post {HERE}, (it’s still available) so you can journey back home with a pair of outfits that cost you absolutely nothing!  Talk about a sweet treat in time for Valentine’s Day!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Belleza (2 versions)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope you have a wonderful holiday on the 14th.  I am looking forward to spending a quiet evening at home with my best pal.  He may not bring me a dozen roses or a box of chocolates, but he certainly fills my heart with unconditional love.  What more could a girl ask for?  Until my next post, happy shopping!
