Al Fresco

Fresco

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m dining “al fresco” today with some free home and garden finds from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I also threw in a few fun group gifts for good measure. ūüôā

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the top photo:

  • Roawenwood –¬†Farmhouse Rustic Dining Table & Chairs,¬†Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread
  • Apple Fall¬†– Argentinian Malbec¬†and Wine Glasses (included, not shown: a decanter of whiskey)

Group gifts in the top photo:

  • RaindaleWall Clock, Candlesticks, Tangerine Cake, and the Winter Rug
  • The Little BranchGolden Birch Trees (left side of photo;¬†the tree with the white trunk)

The trees from The Little Branch are really lovely. They’re animated – meaning they gently sway in the virtual breeze – and you can click to change them with the seasons. Also in the folder is a little mesh hill, and the Buffalo Grass shown here (green and winter versions for both are included).

Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!¬† One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.¬† Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!¬† There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.¬† Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.¬† You deserve it! ūüôā¬† Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Extra Frill

Lacy Sweater
Hello there, Fabulouses!¬† Ripley and I are sure happy to be back in Second Life, and we’re also super excited to share our latest Fabulous Find with you.¬† We discovered this lovely Sweater With Lace Frills as a free group gift upstairs at Sweet E’sDesigns.¬† With its long sleeves and cozy knit, this soft green dress is sure to keep you toasty warm on mid-winter mornings.¬† What I really love about this frock is the lace trim on the cuffs and hemline, which adds a decorative, feminine touch that I thought was just so pretty!¬† Since I was blessed with a sunny day, I chose to wear the outfit with bare legs, but I am sure it would look just as beautiful with a coordinating pair of leggings.¬† The free gift package for members of the Sweet E’s group (free to join) includes fit mesh for classic avatars, as well as versions for mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Separate alpha layers for dress and lace
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Are You Feeling Lucky?

While I explored the shop, Ripley laid down in front of the four lucky chairs located at the top of the stairs.¬† I’m thankful he did, because after a short time, he ran over to me, grabbed my hand, and gently led me over the a chair with a wild card ? on it.¬† I came away with a 100L Sweet E’s gift card in addition to my lovely new dress.¬† So, I’d suggest keeping an eye on local chat to see if your special letter pops up, too.¬† I can’t wait to put my gift card to good use!¬† Until my next post, happy shopping!

My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

skater8_001f

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! ūüėõ

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free¬†group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro¬†for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. ūüôā

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the¬†free¬†group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. ūüėÄ

Happy Spring

Snapshot_002 Good evening Fabulouses!  Tonight I am swinging by to show off my new Happy Spring Garden Table Set that I picked up as a free group gift at Follow Us!  This awesome new low prim group gift includes the table, chairs with several natural poses, and a menu that allows you to rez and hold drinks.  The pretty macaroons on the table are included as well (I CALL THE ROSE ONE!).  The Follow Us group is 40L to join, but will seem like a drop in the bucket with multiple group gifts and exclusive group offers available in the VIP room.

My dress, which is called Edge¬†Ice Roses is available as a free group gift at¬†Siss Boom in both gold and silver.¬† The group is now 250L to join, so I¬†hope you stayed¬†in the group after my last Siss Boom post because this dress is adorbs!!¬† If you are not a current group member, don’t be discouraged by the fee!¬† There are a ton of previous group gifts available after you join the group making it well worth¬†the lindens.
