A Place to Hideaway

Dust Bunny

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well.  It’s super hot here in RL and I’m trying to stay cool in SL.  I found this lovely hide away on the Small Town Green sim.  It’s a sweet little spot where I have been curled up listening to some old LP’s while Ripley is frolicking outside with some friends.  Now THIS is the way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

I Must Have Flowers, Always and Always

This pretty little Ellie top from Safira that I’m wearing features vibrant blossoms splashed across a solid background.  I went with a black color scheme, but with the included texture change HUD, I could have chosen 29 other backgrounds for a floral print or 30 solid hues as well.  Talk about flexibility!  It’s kind of hard to see due to the position of my hand and braid, but this crop top has the cutest little knot in the hemline, just to the left of center.  While the neck and back are fairly high, the sides do dip quite low, so you might want to wear a jacket or opt for a hairstyle that provides side coverage.  To add this little number to your inventory, you’ll need to be a member of the Safira Store group.  There is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but this allows you the opportunity to gather a number of group gifts for free, so it’s well worth the cost, in my opinion.  I counted 64 past gifts, plus 3 current gifts on display upstairs, as well as 5 lucky boards.  That’s a whole lotta wardrobe additions that you can pick up for free!

What’s Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Lovin’ Summer

Nothing says “summer” like a tropical paradise. And I was so pleased to see that Small Town Green offered the perfect tropical getaway for a little mid-week R & R.

Oh, and you know what else says “summer?” This gorgeous maxi dress from Sevyn East! I mean, it’s literally called “Summer.” You can’t get more summery than that, right? lol! 😉

Seriously though, the Summer Maxi Dress is the latest group gift from Sevyn East. It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh S, M, L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The dress comes with a HUD that includes 8 textures: 4 flowery prints, as well as 4 solid colors.

Enjoy!

Big City vs. Small Town

Big City vs. Small Town
When I was young and brave, I moved from a very big city to a small town. I thought I was getting away from the hustle and bustle, but what I learned was that even the small towns bustle, just in different ways. I miss the big city, but I’m still nearby and can visit!

Wear This Anywhere!

Whether you are in a big city or a small town setting, I.M. Collection will have you covered!  Stop by and pick up the free Fitmesh Fanatics Gift with a free group join in the group gifts area of the store.  You’ll find it just around the corner from the reception desk at the entrance.  This classy one piece skirt/blouse combination comes in plenty of mesh body fits as listed below.

Sizes Included:

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

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast

Good morning FabFree Readers! I don’t listen to a whole lot of Nicki Minaj, but I did borrow her quote because I love it!

Scandalizing News

Today I have news about a new group gift at Scandalize!  The other day, the Velure set in black was added to the giant wall of VIP gifts.  This set includes the Velure Skirt and Top in both plain and fluffy versions.  I went all out and put on the fluffy version, and I tried so hard to shoot this photo in a way where you could see all the cool fluff, but it’s really one of those outfits you gotta see inworld to do it real justice!  It also includes a belly chain which you can custom texture (not shown in my photo, but you can see it in the vendor ad below).  This group has a 100L group join fee for those of you that are not already in it.

Sizes Included:

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

Ok, But First… Coffee

Ok, But First... Coffee

Morning Fabulouses!  Yeah… I can’t do anything before coffee…  Coffee always comes first, and a chocolate pastry never hurts either.  My springy look today is put together with two free hunt items by Poeme, and a group gift and a 60L special by Siss Boom.

Dressed by Siss Boom

At Siss Boom you’ll find these High Waisted Jeans in a dark and medium denim as a free group gift for being a part of their VIP group.  This group will cost you 500L to join, but there are currently 28 really nice group gifts to obtain with this membership making it well worth the fee.   These jeans are omega appliers, so they work fabulously under longer tops like the one I am wearing or jackets.

The lacy top you see me wearing today is also available at Siss Boom, and is currently on sale for 60L until Wednesday as a limited time offer.  It comes in the sizes listed below and also includes a rose which you can add to the chest.  I of course missed it completely and noticed it after I took the photo, but it’s cute with or without ;).

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody

Accessorize at Poeme

Poeme has 6 pastel easter eggs hidden in the gardens outside their shops for The FREE Dozen Good Eggs Hunt that just started yesterday! In two of the eggs, you’ll find the Mandala Turquoise Earrings and Mandala Teal Flats which accessorized my outfit today!  The Flats include Maitreya, Slink and an unrigged version.  Grab the Hunt HUD while you are there to TP to other shops participating in this fabulous free Easter Hunt with six prizes in each store!

Have a great Monday!

One Magic Hour

The Magic Hour

Hello Fabulouses!  In the midst of all the weekend chores, it’s so important to indulge in some down time.   You have to look out for yourself so that you can care for others.  Here, Ripley and I are enjoying a magic hour before diving into all the “have-to’s” that seem to make up my weekends.

Bold Chevron Print

My sexy black and white Drizella dress today is a free gift from Seniha for members of the Mesh Body Friends group.  I just love the timeless zig-zag pattern that never goes out of style.  This little beauty features a neckline that plunges deeply, but still provides coverage in all the right areas.  A coordinating panel accentuates your waist, and the skirt falls to just the right length.  Best of all, since the MBF group has no join fee, I added my new frock to my collection completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I suppose one hour off will have to do for today.  After a trip to the home improvement store to pick out a replacement for a dripping faucet in RL (I had NO idea there were *so* many faucet styles available!), I never did get to grocery shopping yesterday.  I can’t let the pupster run out of Ripley Snacks…  Until my next post, happy shopping!

So Long to Summer

So Long to Summer

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I enjoyed our extra day off today, and spent quite a bit of time just meandering around the grid. When I was a girl growing up, I had bittersweet feelings about Labor Day.  I relished the three day weekend, but was always sad to see the end of summer.  Now that I live in the desert, the thought of summer heat departing is something I look forward to.  Isn’t it funny how our perspective changes with the passing of time?

Falling Leaves and Long Sleeves

My laced crop top is perfect for those warm early fall days that end with a slight chill as the sun sets.  Loose fitting long sleeves, which are easy to roll up if need be, will keep my arms warm, while the short hem will allow my tummy to soak up some sun.  I really like the criss-crossed straps that weave through large, brass-colored eyelets.    The asymmetrical shoulders add a touch of whimsy to the black pullover, which is the free September gift for members of the Rir Life Design group.  Although there is a teensy 10L join fee, this adorable top is well worth it!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus

Well, it’s back to the grindstone for me tomorrow, and back to his guard dog duties for the pupster.  At least it is only a four-day work week.  🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping to you!

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). 🙂

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green – it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them – or a pair in teal – for 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Packa brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The Julia applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! 😀
