Color Me Beautiful

Color Me Beautiful

Happy Tuesday FabFree!

I hope everyone’s week as set off to a great start! I have had quite a busy morning today, but while browsing our FabFree group gifts I saw this cute and festive romper and couldn’t resist the urge. I was born and raised in Cali, and my inner Cali girl, or as I call it, my “inner hippie” loved the colors and ran for the hills with it. Snickers. The Mandala Romper by The Beautiful Ones, is an beautiful freebie for our members here at FabFree! The colors in the design on the top half of the romper are so bright and fun and the teal used on the bottom half and through out the outfit was eye-catching and drew me to this piece! You can see some previous coverage done on this creator by Love Trill, [here].

Don’t forget to wear those FabFree group tags, when heading over to The Beautiful Ones to grab this free group gift! If you aren’t a member the Fabulously Free in SL in-world group is free to join!

You Could Have Knocked Me Down With A Feather

FabFree: You Could Have Knocked Me Down With A Feather

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  I am kicking back in a hammock today to show off a sweet free find I thought you might like to hear about.

Fine Feathers

This sweet little feathery summer top is available at The Beautiful Ones as part of a two piece outfit for the Fitmesh Fanatics inworld group (which is free to join).  The Ona Outfit comes with the feather top as shown on my avatar, but a totally different pair of denim shorts which are nice too (just not shown today).  I’ll include the vendor ad below so you can see them too.

I had just picked up these awesome new shorts by N-Core at Kustom9 and could not take them off.. and so you see a bit of a mix and match.  You know me…  I love a good freebie, but I can’t stop myself from shopping either!

2 Pc. Ona Outfit Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Chasing The Sun

TBOSabina
Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you all had a relaxing weekend :).  It may be that dreaded day of Monday again and it’s back to the old grind, but I did find a little sunshiny something that may brighten your day a little bit.

A Tropical Treat

At TBO (The Beautiful Ones) on the wall behind their reception desk, you’ll find several group gifts with a one time group join fee of 25L.  Most of their group gifts are in a teal shade of blue, which is great for me, because I really like that colour!   One of the more recent gifts is this tropical Sabina Outfit that includes the printed top and long skirt.  You can even wear these two items as separates if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Far Better Things Ahead

Far Better Things Ahead
Happy New Year, Fabulouses!  After reading about Love and Carson’s New Year’s Eve mis-adventures {HERE}, {HERE}, and {HERE}, I gained a new appreciation for the quiet evening I spent in the company of my canine pal, Ripley.   No last minute trip to the dog park with his pals to share a few Ripley snacks, no lampshade on his head, just a peaceful stroll through The Winter Forest sim, contemplating the big changes we went through in 2016, and anticipating better days ahead in 2017.

Ringing in the New With Style

As I was considering what to wear on my New Year’s Eve, I was happy to see a message from Astrid about the gorgeous and free Christmas Dress 2016 from The Beautiful Ones.  She said it is a lovely gown, and boy, was she right on the money.  Thank you so much, Astrid, for the tip!  Ripley and I scrambled over to TBO, activated the group tag, and quickly scooped up the formal frock.  With a join fee of only 25L, you will have access to promos and gifts, as well as mania boards, and a group-only lucky chair upstairs.  Featuring glistening gold accents, and a long, flared skirt, this gorgeous, sleeveless gown is perfect for an evening of dancing.  Although the title “Christmas Dress” might make you think it is only suitable for holiday wear, the gift includes a color-change HUD with 6 options, making it very versatile indeed.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Hourglass, Physique, Belleza, Maitreya,  and TMP
  • Mesh for Classic Avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Mesh
  • Color Change HUD with red, white, green, black, teal, and purple options

A Little Bling

It must have been my lucky day, because after the IM from Astrid, my hound with a nose for bargains led me over to Mandala Jewelry’s Marketplace store.  I was thrilled to notice the many S-A-L-E items.  I couldn’t help but dally over the 12 days of savings, 50% off, and 70% off specials.  Finally settling on antique gold, Tukemono double hoop earrings for only 37L (50% off… woot!  woot!) , I checked out, and crossed my fingers, hoping for a perfect match to the trim and bow on my beautiful dress.  Ta-da!  The shimmering baubles wonderfully accessorized my outfit, providing a touch of simple elegance.

Get it, Girl

My Day Just Kept Getting Better

While I was drooling over pondering the many bargains at Mandala Jewelry’s sale, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing a gift from Sentinus Design.  Gold-accented heels with an eye-popping 8 texture options.  Was I interested in the Casandra high heel shoes?  You bet!  Best of all, the group is completely free to join.  In the pose for my main photo, my shoes are completely concealed by the hemline of my gown, so I’ve included the close up photo to showcase the design of my newest footwear.  With softly polished leather, and gleaming golden chain accents, these beauties glammed up my feet in style.  I selected the teal version to complement my dress, but you also have 7 other texture options to choose from.  In addition to the Casandra heels, group members can also pick up 18 (no, that is not a typo) other free gifts.  Time for another happy dance!

If Only…

So, my loyal canine companion and I shared a wonderful New Year’s Eve together.  The only down side of the whole story is he didn’t bring me breakfast in bed the next morning.  Just deep brown, liquid chocolate eyes, and a cold, wet nose, demanding a walk in the frosty, pre-dawn air.  Maybe Love does have the right idea after all…  I wonder how hard it would be to train an old dog to whip up breakfast as a new trick?  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Lush

Lush

Just too lush…

Ages ago, a friend of mine teleported me to a sim called Elysion. Membership was required to visit, and he paid the fee of 650 Linden and we walked around a bit, but I didn’t get to do much exploring. I never left the group because of the fee, but I hadn’t been back to the sim because of my busy schedule, despite its promise of a lush adult atmosphere. (Don’t worry, I promise this is a PG-13 post 😉 )

Fantasy cream?

I had just finished up a few stops along the trail of the Fantasy Cream Hunt and had come up with a prize that I was aching to show off. I had found this gorgeous not-quite-necklace — but definitely a come hither neckline apparel showpiece — by EvelineInTheBox which is their prize for the Hunt for just 1L if you find the little cup of cream. The gold interwoven chains are each connected by tiny red beads, and the entire thing is resizable for the perfect fit. I knew that if I could find the perfect dress… I’d be ready to explore that mysterious oasis I now consider Elysion.

Woman with the red dress on.

It turned out that I found what I was looking for at The Beautiful Ones. Right now you can pick up the Sarah group gift there one of two ways. It is out as a FREE group gift (just pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be immediately refunded to you). The group join fee is a mere 25 Linden. OR if you don’t have a lot of group space, you can pick up this beautiful applier dress with rigged mesh skirt panels for just 10L (no group space required).

Appliers included: System Layers, Omega and TMP

The Sarah dress also comes with a color change hud with 6 color choices. I’m showing you the dress in red (it matched those lovely and delicate red beads on my neck piece I was telling you about), but with 6 color choices, this is a dress that is versatile.

All decked out.

Now that I was all decked out, it was time to make my visit. I found Elysion prepared for winter… and while there were visitors scattered here and there, no one stopped to disturb me. I wandered the paths and eventually ended up upon the terrace of a stone cottage where I took my picture overlooking the pines next to a sheer curtain. Don’t worry, the fireplace is not too far away… I’ll warm up in time to be off to find more freebies.

Hey, Beautiful One, Keep Cozy and Comfortable

Aqua 3

Hello Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are taking a break from chasing zombies at Woodbury Falls to bring you a special edition blog post featuring one of the newest Fabulously Free in SL group gifts.  I think you’ll really like this one!

It’s All About Sweater Weather

With brisk fall days upon us, I’m finding the need for warmer clothes to ward off the chill.  This free Bea Off Shoulder Sweater from The Beautiful Ones will keep me warm in style.  The aqua knit garment wraps my avi in comfort, and offers a sexy peek at one shoulder.  In addition to Maitreya and Slink versions for mesh bodies, the gift also includes classic avatar sizes in XS, S, M, L and XL in fit mesh.  I like the detailing on the knit cuffs and waistline… no chilly breezes will sneak past them, so I’m sure to stay cozy and comfortable.  To add this cute sweater to your wardrobe, all you have to do is join the Fabulously Free in SL group (it’s completely free!) then teleport over to The Beautiful Ones, and tap the board… easy peasy!  If you haven’t checked out all the wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free in SL group members, you can see them here.

Aqua 1

Trendy, Chic Choker

Since Rip and I had an exciting afternoon of zombie chasing planned, I decided to keep my look casual.  This simple, tattoo-style choker from Fakess on The Marketplace proved to be the perfect accessory, and it was only 1L.  With multiple layers included in the package, such as a tattoo and undershirt layers for classic avatars, and mesh body appliers for Omega, Slink Physique and TMP, this accessory is sure to be useful to all.

Relay…….What?!?

Although I am using the Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to utilize the Omega applier for the choker by using the HUD from Omega Solution’s System Relay Kit for Maitreya.  At 99L, it is priced a bit over our 75L limit for Fab Free, but I find this HUD to be an extremely useful tool to have tucked away in my inventory.  It allows me to wear items that only come with Omega appliers on my Maitreya mesh body, and it opens up so many options for expanding my SL wardrobe.  If you have a Maitreya body, it’s worth checking out.

Aqua 2

Ready to Run!

I slipped on these snug-fit, figure-sculpting Katelyn pants from Mette’s, and Lewis Studded Flat Sneakers from the Mesh Agency, then teleported (somewhat nervously) to the Woodbury Falls Sim.  Ripley has confidently assured me that he will keep me safe from harm.  I do have to say, though, that these zombies are pretty creepy, and emanate frightening sounds, so I’ve been keeping my guard up… This spooky sim is not for the faint of heart.  Yikes!  I think I hear the shuffling footsteps and moaning of one of those creatures fast approaching now, so I’d better end this post.  Until next time, happy shopping!
