Time To Relax

Good Morning

Some of my favorite moments in life are when I get to have quiet time with nothing to do and nowhere to be. This new group gift towel wrap from Legal Insanity made me want to run a nice hot bath and relax with a great book! This “towel dress” is a FREE gift for Legal Insanity group members. The Legal Insanity group is FREE to join. I kinda like the idea of somehow making this cute mesh wrap part of an outfit but I just didn’t pull it off. I could also see wearing it over your swimwear as a cover-up. The cute pattern and vibrant colors would be great for the pool or the beach.

Pru is also wearing a FREE group gift from ASO!. The dainty bow around her neck is FREE for ASO! group members, and the group is also FREE to join. This delicate bow is mesh and comes in several colors. I like that it’s simple and feminine, and I think it is a great alternative to a traditional necklace, or even a collar.

Next, I love this sweet face from Mudskin. Right now Mudskin group members can score a Lelutka head applier, and a matching Maitreya (body/hands/feet) applier for the Maitreya Lara body by stalking the lucky letter boards. There are 3 different variations to be had, I was lucky and managed to get the Reina appliers. The applier for the Lelutka heads includes brow and freckle options. So if you wear the Maitreya Lara body and or any of the Lelutka mesh heads, these FREE lucky letter prizes are a must-have. Additionally, the Mudskin group is FREE to join. Please note that the individual skin is not included in these lucky letter prizes, just the mentioned appliers.

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

5 July 2015 [1]

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

5 July 2015 [2]

The second thing you need is this fabulous rigged mesh gift hair from rezology called Save the Queen. It is a steal that even Queen Mab will approve of for the sweet price of only 1L on the Market Place and comes with a fully customizable hud that lets you tint the hair first with a base color and from there even further with a secondary tint to get the hair your perfect shade. It’s the first hair hud of this kind I’ve seen and I was very impressed with the way it worked (and the control it gave me over the colors I could achieve!).

5 July 2015 [3]

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!

Weekend Independence!

Hello FabFree Folks and Happy Independence Day to all us crazy Americans! I hope your day is filled with festivities and fire works!

Weekend Independence

My SL day started off with a bang when I got the group notice from Heydra about the great weekend event going on right now. Heydra is celebrating Independence Day with a 40% off everything ( except limited Venders) in the store AND they’ve made the group FREE to join over the weekend.  This is your opportunity to get in on a great Group with a very generous perks such as member only Lucky Chairs, Midnight Mania boards and monthly group gifts. And if that wasn’t enough group members get 300L instore credit every month!

I popped over to Heydra this morning and found this charming tee and scarf set on the camping chair and … yes… I camped!  This is the ‘Charlotte shirt with scarf and HUD’.  The HUD lets you pick fifteen colors/patterns for the tee and ten colors/patterns for the scarf. While I was there, I grabbed these cute distressed ‘Hayley’ jeans from the past group gifts wall.

I rounded off my shopping today with a quick trip to the Marketplace and found this adorable tote bag. This the “American Flag Tote Bag” from Things i Like. It’s beautifully detailed and comes with an animation for a hand hold or a shoulder hold. And it only set me back 25L. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Okay, I’m of to fire up the grill for our cook out and light some sparklers. Y’all have a wonderful 4rth of July!

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Beached Bunny HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! As I reported earlier in the week, we have a bunch of new summer hunts to partake of. More are arriving every day. In fact, today marks the first day of The Beached Bunny Hunt 5… a popular well-run hunt now in it’s fifth iteration. There are 67 stops, so it may take you some time, but your inventory will get stuffed with all kinds of L$1 goodies.

Right down below you’ll find a comprehensive list of hunts running right now. You should be able to find one that’s “just right” for you. Poke the the names for more information on each hunt.

By-the-way.. FabFree and HUNT SL both have excellent pages if you’re new to hunting, or even if you’re not. There are lots of tips and tricks to be had.

A Sky Full of Stars

Snapshot_001
Belle Epoque has a really pretty new group gift for everyone to take advantage of!  The medieval Merewald dress is available in three colours as a free group gift after activing  your inworld group tag.  The group is free to join.

I can see this dress being worn as a medieval type roleplay dress or even as a modern day boho gypsy or hippie style dress.  I am wearing the blue version above, but have included the designer’s vendor ad below so you can see all three colours in the gift.

What’s New Pussycat?

Hello FabFree Folks! If you haven’t already guessed: I love cats! So when I saw there was a Cats! Hunt, I knew I was going Hunting!

Cats_001

First up, this is the “Cats Hunt”  dress from Get Frocked. I love the little black cats on the skirt and the back has a really unusual open design. It goes perfectly… or should I say ‘purrrrr fectly’ with my new tattoo from French Vintage Couture.  The “Cats” tattoo comes with two thigh sets of paw prints, one set for the spine and even a set for your face.  My necklace continues the paw print theme and adds a little heart to it. This is the ‘Paw” necklace from Miss Jewel.

Cats_002

Now, I know we normally don’t blog things like tip jars but when I saw that you can add your own photo and this being all about our feline friends… I had an opportunity to show off my real world fur babies.  This is the Curious Cats tip jar from Tipsters. It is a very nice build and I love that you can add your own photo to it. I’m going to keep it around as a super cute picture frame since it only takes up 3 land impact points.  And if you’re ‘curious’ … from left to right that’s Malachi, Boomer, Ivy and Cassie all sitting in the window saying ‘hi’ as I come home.

The 1L Cats! Hunt runs until July 30th so have fun!
