I Dream of Granita

I Dream of Granita

I’m right in the frame of mind where I’m ready to be on summer vacation.  My brain has filled with visions of light fabrics, sunny skies, scudding clouds and a nice lemon granita.  The summer always brings a nice sense of calm, and the thought of shoveling snow or -30 windchill is nowt but a distant memory.  Time to do some basking!

The Price is Right

Over at Poème right now you’ll find this absolutely perfect summer dress priced for just 75L for a limited time.  There are a bunch of lovely different textures to choose from, so if you black and white isn’t your thing, you’re sure to find something else that delights just as much.  You can also change the belt to black if you’d prefer!  Again, this deal won’t be around forever, so don’t wait too long!

Venti Strawberry Açai Refresher

Venti Strawberry Açai Refresher

My first thought when I put on this outfit was “time for a workout”, but of course that devolved into “time for a leisurely stroll with a drink that has over 1500 calories in it”.  I suppose the two are synonymous in some way.  At least in my world they are – because they involve some form of movement…. right?  RIGHT?!  Come on people, work with me here!

Dark Waters

My top and shorts are one of my latest finds from The Wash Cart sale!  You’ve most likely heard that this is their final round ever, so do head over to stock up on reasonably priced goodness.  We’re sad to see them go, but we are glad for the memories.  I stopped by the Dark Water Designs cart and grabbed this top and shorts look that is perfect for either being industrious or….not.  It will only cost you 25L, and that’s awesome!

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

A Time for all Things

A Time for all Things

It’s the perfect time of the year for two things: first, clambering through the woods and second – The Wash Event!

In Dark Water

It’s always nice when the weather turns cool to have a fun event to look forward to.  The Wash churns out a great discount event several times per year, and this season’s is no different.  You’ll find plenty to love, just like I did!  My first stop was the Dark Water Designs display.  This floral jumper gives me all the right 90’s feels that are perfect for this time of year!  If florals aren’t your jam, then there are some really nice plaids too.  Best of all, this top and jumper set only costs 30L.  Oh, and there’s even an iced coffee in the box for you. Perfect!

What Could Go Wrong?

What Could Go Wrong?

There’s this thing that happens in summer where the minute I get ready for something summery (today on the menu is surfing…) the clouds appear, or the wasps show up and all my summer plans are dashed.  Happily, I can avoid all the unpleasantness with a bit of windlight magic in SL!

Sun-Sational

The Wash’s Sun-Sational Event is still raging on this month, and I came across this super cute bikini and sandals outfit courtesy of Artic Storm.  There are several different colours to choose from at The Wash, and I went for the pink option.  The whole outfit is a steal at just 25L!  How awesome is that?

A Slice of Heaven

A Slice of Heaven

It’s one of those days where all I want to do is go out, buy ridiculous amounts of objects that I don’t really need, and then finish with a massive bowl of ice cream.  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  I think everyone has their own idea of heaven, but that might just be one of my favourite iterations!

Gacha Good

Kustom9 is in full gear right now, and Amitomo are back at it with their newest gacha.  I can never resist playing the Amitomo gachas, because they really are a great deal.  You usually walk away from 1 or 2 plays with a full outfit, and with a bit of luck you often land the rares.  This has been my experience at the very least!  I promise that I only played this gacha three times (at 69L per pull) and I landed this full outfit (the dress, jacket, bags and ice cream, all with HUDs to customize the bags and ice cream, as well as the hand colour) as well as the rare hair.  In my books, that’s an awesome deal!  Plus…just look at it, how much more late 80’s early 90’s appealing can you get?  This fun outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies and there are loads of different versions of the outfit you could end up with!  Check out the vendor pic below!

Good luck!

Just a Little Insanity

Just a Little Insanity

I’m a sucker for a crazy outfit in SL, and this one is totally giving me life right now.  It’s shiny, sexy, zippered, and just generally insane in all the right ways.  Do you ever get excited about the fact we can wear pure insanity in SL?  I know I do.

Blossoming

So Fab Free reader Karan whispered a tip in my IM box yesterday that made me head on over to Blossom.  They’ve got a 1000L gift card just waiting to be snapped up on their main counter.  All you need to do is join their group for free, and this awesome gift is yours.  Again, I have no idea for how long, but it is there!  If gift cards aren’t your thing, then head over to the lucky board area where there are about 40 billion (slight exaggeration) lucky boards full of cute outfits.  If you don’t have time to wait, then the option is there for you to buy the outfit I’m wearing for just 49L.  The shoes are also from a lucky board there, and you can’t be mad at that!

Goodbye Gato

Goodbye Gato

It’s always sad when a brand decides to sail off into the windlight sunset, but I supposed that is the nature of things in both RL and SL.  One of my fave brands, GATO is closing up shop, but is giving us all a bit of time to gather the rosebuds while we may!

Meow

There are all sorts of goodies to be had at GATO, but I really loved this dress (sized for Maitreya).  It’s deeply discounted to just 60L, and that made me pretty happy.  If you’re looking for even bigger deals, then I’ll point you in the direction of the Gachas, some of which are discounted down to  20L per pull.  Grab all you can now (don’t forget the group gifts too!), cuz Gato will disappear forever quite soon.   Thanks for the mems, Gato!

Now, off you pop.

The Creative Process

The Creative Process

Ah, Fab Free…the creative juices are a-flowin!  And there’s a sentence that sounded better in my head.  Despite my clunky phrase, the sentiment remains the same!  I’m all about the artistic pursuits, whether in RL or SL, so why not adorn your SL affordably?  Read on!

So De’Fient

My lovely boots and dress are the offering by De’Fient Unicorn at The Wash Crisp n Cool Cart Sale.  They come bundled together and are priced at a very affordable 50L.  I’d pay way more than that for the boots alone!  I also picked up the long cardigan at the same stall, and it only cost me 1L.  Cute, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS-L with an Alpha Layer

Easel-y Done

Terrible subtitles aside, I love the whole art set I picked up at The Cart Sale by Luna Rose.  The easel I’m painting on and the stool came together and cost 50L.  The exciting part is that the canvas has a function that lets you paint gradually.  In other words, the painting appears more and more complete each time you click on it and there are two different paintings to choose from.  Fun!  I also picked up the canvases on the ground in my shot at the same cart, and they set me back only 25L.  I love to decorate in SL, so these were fun buys for me!

Do you keep it creative?  Let me know in the comments!
