Pencil me in

I just love a good pencil dress don’t you. Ghee is all too happy to pencil us in with their FREE group gift. It is the Jan gift so you might wanna hurry over to grab it but I will say Ghee is good about leaving heir past month gifts out so if you are reading this late still run over there I bet you can still grab it. This group does have a 250L fee, the gifts are generous tho making it a worth wild investment.

Not only are you getting a fab fit mesh pen stripped & polka dot pencil dress my adorable matching hat is included. I love hats but its so rare to find one that works well with your own hair. This one perches on your head very nicely and is too cute. An extra bonus you also get a nice pair of black slink high heal pumps that you slink feet wearer are sure to get tons of use out of.

This outfit is a classic and one that works from brunch to the office.

Twist n shout!

PicMonkey2Just take those old records off the shelf!

Feelin very retro today after picking up the new FREE group gift at Entice, group is FREE to join. This mesh halter dress is called Shake, Rattle & Roll Dress and it includes a color hud. You can change the top and skirt colors separately giving you several color options. I opted for the pink polka dots since the new FREE group gift over at N-core and those cute pink shoes “Norma” I have on. They work with Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and X-treme feet. The group does have a 50L join fee but the shoes are so worth 50Ls. My sweet Hopefulness Necklace is the FREE group gift from the Cosmopolitan room available til Oct 23. The group is FREE to join. Every retro girl needs her Cat sunglasses and I lucked out with the group gift from Nerdy Girl (NG) not only did I get the Cat sunglasses but regular glasses too all for FREE with a 5L group join fee. The glasses even have a color hud. MEOW!

I am not quite ready to dance away just yet. Lets move onto my nails and skin. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and La Boheme has my lovely nail polish out where there hunts are listed. Tho you don’t have to hunt for this nail polish just touch the MSABC 2015 Official Hunt+ Vendor sign and make a 2L donation which goes towards supporting breast cancer research and you can show your support for breast cancer awareness with this polish too. It has a Slink, Omega and Maitreya hud for fingers & toes. My lovely skin is the new FREE group gift at WOW skins.  Natasha Tan comes with both non cleavage and cleavage versions but that is not the best part. WOW is moving into omega appliers and this skin includes the omega skin applier. There only drawback is it doesnt include the slink hand/feet appliers but never fear there is a FREE solution. Right at the base of the group gift there is a FREE box of past group gifts, grab that box and look inside for .::WoW Skins::. GG NOV 2014 Poly there is a set of slink appliers in there in tan which is what you need. Problem solved. The WOW group its self is a 350L join fee but you are walking away with more than one full skin and they have a new skin every month so I considered it a good investment.

Ok I hear the manger coming I better scoot since I have been twisting n shouting on top of the table!

How to rock n roll like me!

Ready, steady, go!

Vroom vroom! Watch out, Fabbies, because here I come around the corner with a post chock full of awesome! There is a brand spankin new event going on right now called Level Up, and I’m here to speed on by with some of the great cheapie items that you can pick up at the event!

Level Up is an event that happens every 3 months and features some of the grid’s absolute BEST designers, each of which create items to fit a specific theme, but here’s the extra awesome part… The event is video game inspired, and each moth highlights a different type of game! June’s theme is racing games, with the tagline being “Drive it like you stole it!”

ready, steady, go!_001

My whole outfit, and the racing-themed setup all around me, are both chock full of cheapies!

ready, steady, go!_002

While my dress from Katat0nik is NOT a cheapie (it runs $L200 for each style, and there are 4 styles!) it is super adorable, and an event exclusive. This dress is fitted mesh, so if you want it, make sure your viewer is up to date so it can handle it! The cute VW bug purse is an event exclusive AND a cheapie! GFD‘s racing bag comes in 20 different styles, and the gacha is just $L65 to play!

ready, steady, go!_003

I love the snail on my head, don’t you? My racing snail friend is another gacha item, but this time from Tentacio. Each play costs just $L70, and there are 8 common and 2 rare adorable snails to collect!

ready, steady, go!_004

If you HAVEN’T caught gacha fever yet, then maybe these fantastic slink-compatible heels will light a fire under you! Frogstar‘s flame on wedges come in 10 colours, are unrigged, modifiable, and the gacha is only $L50 per play, you can’t beat that for fabulous Slink shoes!

ready, steady, go!_005

And finally, if you’re looking for decor instead of clothes, then Cubic cherry kre-ations has you covered! These super adorable cherry racers are yet another of the gacha items available exclusively at Level up! These come in 6 styles (4 shown above!), are only 1-2 land impact, and the gacha is $L50 to play. This event, and all of its exclusives, speed away on July 5th, so you’d better race over to the venue and shop till you drop… and remember… drive it like you stole it!

Izzie’s, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Greetings!

It’s one of those days where I just want to cozy up in a comfy chair and bury my nose in a great book.  So today I rummaged around my inventory and found all sorts of treasures from my latest shopping excursions.  My Izzie’s Belted Dress is a combination of mesh and non-mesh pieces and the belt has a color change option in the HUD.  This dress came in one of two clearance boxes, FILLED with all sorts of Izzie’s goodies, for only 10L each!  I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is in those boxes!  I see poses, clothing, hand bags, satchels, jewelry and Holiday items…the list goes on and on and only 10L for the whole shebang!  Make sure you pick up both boxes, located in the foyer at the entrance, because they both have different items in them…what treasures to be found!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!My gorgeous Touch of Stone Jewelry set is only one of several FREE jewelry items from Lazuri!  You’ll find some of the FREE (no group required) Lazuri jewelry items at the Main Store on the first floor near the group gifts (250L group join) and more on the second floor!  This Touch of Stone set comes with two different types of Fuschia stone options and metal change options! My absolutely adorable Baby Black Kite is a FREE gift from 8f8 and comes with an option to have it static on your shoulder, rotating around you or rezzed and rotating.

My stunning skin, Hanako T2 Aka,  was a gift from the skin artist behind Adam n Eve (AE), Sachi Vixen.  One of the things I have always loved about AE skins is that  Sachi details each skin from top to bottom by hand…speaking of which…her skins are known for having the best “bottom” in SL! Her skins are truly a work of art…NO templates here…100% original.

The particular skin gifted to me  came with delicious ruby red lips but I opted to use a Light Peachy Lipgloss from Esk-Imo.  The lip gloss is an old gift and no longer available…but you will find FREE eyeliner at the landing point and reasonably priced (150L and under) makeup tattoos in the makeup room. I topped the lipgloss off with Izzie’s Glossy Lips Highlights, from the Marketplace,…NOT free (149L) but ohhhhhhhhhh so worth it…what a difference it makes to the lips!  Yum!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!Love sent me these fabulous Athens (Pink) gacha shoes, from Essenz…she knows I ADORE all things pink!  These shoes are available as a gacha item (75L per play) at the The Comic Fair.  Thank you Love!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

What would a trip to a bookstore be without this cute little [POSH] Book Purse (Alice in Wonderland )for only 10L, from [POSH], on the Marketplace!
Izzie's, Lazuri and Essenz..oh my!

Once I had my outfit all sorted out, I headed for a cozy little place called the Novel Cafe.  I found this sweet bookstore/cafe as a result of a wonderful conversation with one of our amazing FabFree readers…Macey.  Macey is the creator behind this charming little bookstore/cafe and has done a lovely job at making a comfy place to curl up with a good book and a latte.  Be sure to venture out beyond the Bookstore/Cafe…there are other things to also discover and explore there!  Thank you for the tour and the fabulous conversation Macey…it was a pleasure to meet you! ❤

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤

How I got fabulous for FREE at ieQED and :SMC:!

Greetings!

Yesterday, while I was out and about enjoying my Easter shopping and hunt hopping, I came across the :SMC: Lucky Boards…and what a score I made!  There are a ton of lucky boards at :SMC:, filled with packs of mesh nails (that also include Slink nail appliers!), Tops, skirts, Kawaii head pieces, glasses and Slink compatible shoes!  The layered ruffle mesh white top and pink pleated skirt, I’m wearing, are both :SMC: lucky board prizes (previously blogged by Skyler HERE), no group join required and completely FREE!  The letters turn frequently and I scored most of the items in all the boards in about an hour. I chose this fiery red Divalicious Designs Bella Hair from the MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt… I featured this hair yesterday in platinum…it comes with a HUD loaded with several colors to choose from.  My shoulder bag is the !KKBB! Deidre Shoulder tote – Pink Damask, available on the Marketplace for only 1L from KissKissBangBang.

The appliers on my Slink hand fingernails are part of a Mesh Nail(Momo-RGR) package that is also one of the FREE lucky board items at :SMC:.  I think it is fantastic that the creator included the mesh nails for non-Slink hands AND the appliers for the Slink hand lovers..it’s a win-win AND it is FREE!

A Vintage Happy Easter from Sonatta Morales!

Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!  The woman known for impeccable period clothing has placed this timeless FREE *8* Aprile Dress (mesh) inside one of the several bunnies scattered throughout her store.  Only one bunny contains the dress…so you’ll need to hop along and find out which one it is!  No need to join a group, this dress is FREE for everyone to grab.  I love the beautiful weave on the texture of this dress and it comes with a neck scarf (not shown).
Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!

I’ve finished off this look with this fab pink overtheshoulder sweater, a gacha item at The Chapter Four, from *COCO*.  The *COCO* gacha is 75L per play and I scored my favorite color on the first try!  The bag is from U.one Deluxe PopArt Mode and this particular style is no longer available, however, this store has TONS of  clothing and accessory items from 1L-50L!

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤
