When you’re flying high, take my heart along

When you're flying high, take my heart along

You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
You got to chase a dream, one that’s all your own
Before it slips away
When you’re flyin’ high, take my heart along
I’ll be the harmony to every lonely song
That you learn to play

When You Come Back Down ~ NickelCreek

Hey Fab Folks! Like I said yesterday, I have a bunch of cute tops to show you this week. I really love today’s cutie cropped sweater from Hilly Haalan. I literally took so long going through all the options trying to decided which was my favorite! It took forever because the “Bella” sweater comes with a HUD to pick and choose from twenty five colors and patterns!

I don’t know how long this sweet sweater will be up as the Group Gift so you’d better hurry over. While you’re there, be sure to check out all the great sales and the generous ton of past group gifts. The Hilly Haalan Group is free to join so you’re the winner all the way around.

Cute Boots

Cute Boots

Well…. hello there, FabFree!  No, I haven’t lost my mind or my shirt… well maybe the shirt… Let me explain …  See, Poeme, being a go -to source of awesome things is introducing a whole line of these sweet ankle boots. And I knew I was going to grab them up … but at the very reasonable price of 99L, I couldn’t show them off on the Blog. Well, boo. Then the wonderful Elysiane Sapphire said “That’s no fun” and the she put these three fantastic patterns on a Special FabFree Sale! 75L each!

UPDATE:

Good News, Everyone! Elysiane sent me a text a few minutes ago because -I was WRONG! It’s not just these three styles of boots… It’s the entire line! That’s right… The whole shebang is just 75L each. But only till March 1st! So get over there!

So I knew I had to find a shirt that was equally cool to go with them. I looked around and realized… There’s NO shirt as cool as these boots! So I stopped trying and let the boots speak for themselves!

For a limited time, You can grab these three boots for the Fab price of 75L each. Be sure to take a look while you’re there at all the great Group Gifts too. You can’t go wrong at Poeme!

A Rose is a Rose

A Rose is a Rose

Valentines may be over, but lots of the designers and shops on the Grid are still showing us the love! How you ask? By making their hunts last allll month. Like the “All you need is Love” Hunt. Of course, most the Valentine themed hunts feature hearts and kisses and cupids but among all the typical items I was lucky enough to find this gorgeous vintage roses printed mini dress from RR.

The Elvia dress is what I call the perfect mini dress. Short enough to be sexy but my …ahem… behind isn’t falling out. Sometimes less is more, am I right? And just take a look at the details! The little zipper on the thigh and the perfect seams… This one is staying in my closet on a favorites tab.

The All you need is Love Hunt runs until February  28. But that’s coming quicker than you think… so go get your Hunt on!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And I thought to myself, “What???’ Of course we all know about the Fab… but there are a ton of other helpful sources for low cost or free things. I personally love the Teleport HUB group and today, I found a new to me group – Designer News. The group is free to join and has tons of notes and notices about new promos and gifts and sales. Then I saw that one of my fav designers had a gift up for the group and I was sold!

This is the ‘Rafaela’ dress from Pink Mango and you can pick it up for free as a member of the Designer News Group. Don’t you love the subtle shimmer? Pink Mango has a bunch of group gifts up in addition to their own group so you can get some awesome sources when you go to pick this cute sweater dress up!  Get out there and SHOP, my dears!

Hunting Hearts

As promised, I’m back this evening to talk about the sweet little Valentines Day Hunt going on over at Poeme! If you know me, you know I love Poeme’s shop and the owner/designer, Elysiane Sapphire, is an absolute delight. She has very generously offered the Hunt prizes in a “Transferable” form so you can gift your sweetheart if you so desire. If that isn’t enough, she has also added a day to the Hunt to make sure we all have time to pick up these Valentines Day goodies.

I picked out the “Ruffle Me Up” dress in scarlet to show off as well as the “Love Me Red Choker” and the “Burning Love Tote”. But I picked up quite a few more things in the Hunt. Because you can never have too many plaid boots! Besides with everything only 15L this is one event that won’t wreck your pocketbook.

The Hunt now runs until February 15th so get over there and Hunt down some hearts!

Sizes Included

Hey Hey FabFree! Welcome to the weekend, at last! And you know what you need to do this weekend? Shop and Hop! Cause that free gift bonanza is all over on the 17th. And when you aren’t shoppin’ an’ hoppin’ you might get a little Huntin’ in too.

My Shop and Hop gifts for the post are this super cute sweater and boots set from Envious (in the Aurelian Region) called ‘Kisses Love”. I love the bright flashy red and the thigh high boots are so unique. But get ready for some salty-ness from Juli… the set comes with a cute little short skirt too… a skirt that is so short, I didn’t feel comfortable even wearing it, let alone showing it on the blog. I don’t mind showing some skin… but I have my limits!   Ahem, anyway… this is not a dig at this designer or ANY designer or any one who likes showing off. It’s just not me.  So I tossed on my favorite jeans and still got a terrific outfit for Valentines day!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I am also enjoying this luscious cupcake treat free from Shop and Hop. This is the “Be Mine” cupcake from Boyberry. ( Aurelian Region) It looks so tasty… I must obey the cupcake. I am it’s now. The cupcake has a hold animation but it’s only 2LI if you want to use it as some sweet decor.

Last but not least is my new comfy sitting arrangement on which to eat my tasty treat. This is the “Love letters Ottoman and rug” from Ballade. This adorable set is the 1L prize for the “Love Hunt”. For that one little Linden, you get both the ottoman and the rug which can be used separately. The ottoman has ten poses in it that are well suited for guys or gals. Both pieces together are only a 5LI so you can easily add it to your decor. Oh, and while I was at Ballade… I saw that Poeme is have a sweet Valentines Day Hunt too. It was so nifty… well more about that in my next post! The Love Hunt runs until the 28th so get Hunting!

Still in Lockdown

Coming soon

What’s greater than being able to lounge around in comfy, sexy undies all day? I know I love it. Who needs clothes, anyways?!

Cute Set

This adorable panties and top set is a free group gift at Voluptas Virtualis. It’s the store’s own stay at home gift. I am still staying at home from work for the most part these days due to lockdowns, so this cute undies set came to me at the perfect moment! Voluptas Virtualis has you covered for the perfect lingerie set to lounge around in! The set comes in a variety of colours and textures (including some sexy tiger patterns!) which you can change via a hud. 

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Legacy

Fuzzy Socks to go with it, please?

In addition to the perfect set, Voluptas Virtualis also has these awesome fuzzy socks out as a free group gift. They match the socks perfectly with all the textures described above and they are nice, cozy and fuzzy: perfect for these winter months to snuggle up at home. 

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Legacy

Some cute handmade earrings to go with it…

Many years ago I learned how to make jewelry in real life. It is hard! There is nothing like a beautiful set of hand-crafted earrings. Swallow has such a set with a full hud of colours for only 1 L on the marketplace. Grab it up! What a great deal! The ring I am wearing is of a deer and also a 1 L group gift by Swallow on the Marketplace

In need of a haircut? 

I also needed a new haircut recently so I chopped it myself. How does it look? Just kidding, I actually got this cute bob as a free group gift at Tableau Vivant behind the counter. Awesome hair! 

Enjoy, Fab Free!
