Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂

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

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

Gracefully Shabby

I’ve already shown you a couple of the fantastic gifts that are available FREE at the Shiny Shabby anniversary event this month in my previous post HERE, and I’m back with a few more, as well as some treats from a few other great places as well! This post is full of goodies you won’t want to miss out on, so roll up your sleeves and get ready to do some sim hopping!

Gracefully Shabby 3

Make a stop by Wicked right now and wear your group tag. The group is FREE to join and you can then pick up this FREE top and these FREE jeans as your FREE group gifts! The top comes in this rocking red but the belt has a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the belt, laces, and metal eyelets each separately! The jeans have a really great tush on them too! The jeans come in all the standard mesh sizes, as do the top, but the top has the added bonus of also coming in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits as well!

My lovely and casual pony tail hair style in this special edition color is a FREE Shiny Shabby anniversary gift from Mina. Just stop by the booth and buy the gift box for 0L and it is yours to enjoy!

You’ll have to do a little hunting to nab my boots, but these are well worth it! These mesh Doctor Boots are resizable and don’t require any special feet. You can pick them up for the tiny sum of only 10L if you find the little black and white shoe as part of the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt… just visit even.flow and do a bit of searching!

Gracefully Shabby 4

I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to this casual outfit, and so I picked up a couple of other FREE gifts at Shiny Shabby. My bracelets are courtesy of Kunglers. I am showing you the garnet set, but the box also contained a set in emerald green. The detailing on these is just fantastic.

My simple but super stylish necklace is the FREE gift from RealEvil Industries, also at the Shiny Shabby event. Again, just stop by and buy the box for 0L.

Gracefully Shabby 1

I hope while you were at Wicked that you picked up all the FREE gifts! Did you notice this super hot mini dress near the top and jeans? Sha-zam! I love this zippered number! It comes in all the standard sizes and is a stunning fit and even includes a hud with five color choices for the zipper. It is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join.

Gracefully Shabby 2

Again, I added a few special items from the Shiny Shabby anniversary event to make my look. This soft and pretty pink hair from elua is perfectly feminine and I love the soft waves and the way it frames the face. It is another FREE anniversary gift at the event.

Meva is also participating and is giving this generous and gorgeously detailed stone necklace set FREE as part of Shiny Shabby‘s anniversary. It really added a nice touch to this outfit.

Gracefully Shabby 5

A girl can never have too many shoes, right? I thought some sandals would be perfect for walking the beach though, and decided to stop by Slipper Originals to pick up their Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt gift. A mere 10L will have you styling in these pretty pink flats. Just look for the little black and red shoe.
