I Love Boathouses

Coming SoonI love boathouses. I have blogged about them before, and you may remember that I love hanging out by the water. Naturally, I was simply delighted by this boathouse skybox I stumbled upon at Quoted Memories. I’m feeling the cool greys, blues and earthy tones in this scene and I also have a few freebies to share so let’s check them out together!

Awesome finds @ [QE Designs]

I am a huge fan of [QE Designs], and oh my are they generous. The gorgeous sandals I have on are one of their lucky chair prizes, and their chairs cycle all day with amazing goodies!

Free hair @ tram

I am wearing another one of their free sculpted hairs here, and all of their sculpted hairs in the store are set for 0 Linden. Pick them all up there’s quite a few and each one comes in several natural colours. 

Exotic

I am also wearing another lucky board prize from Trend, which I previously blogged about here. I am wearing the “Exotic Lip Gloss” pack, which is a super shiny pack of vibrant lip glosses. Trend‘s group currently costs 250L to join.

Luncheon on the Grass

Coming Soon

If you’re an art history nerd, you may have gotten the reference in my title. Yes, this post is inspired by one of my favourite paintings in art history, Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, translated to Luncheon on the Grass painted by Édouard Manet. As much as I studied this painting in school, I never thought I would (unknowingly) create a photo in SL that looks a bit like it! Of course, I need some 19th-Century men in the photo too, and I’m not posing in the nude, but it’s still a classic art history tradition to show people eating a picnic on the grass. I am having my picnic solo today, but I definitely have enough food to share around!

Oh yeah, I need to get to freebies now and stop ranting about art history. The first gift seen in my picnic shot are the classy Marilena Shoes. These come in a fatpack of colours and you can customize each part of the shoe including that fabric fold at the top of the feet. You can grab it as a group gift at StephaneL, and their group currently costs 15 Linden to join. 

Full with Free

Here’s an up-close shot of more free gifts I am showcasing in my picnic shot today. 

Solo Picnic Closeup

  • The hairstyle is the latest group gift at Firelight! Their group is free to join, and you get a number of free hairstyles with this group. The hair includes a colour hud that allows you to change the style to several natural tones. 
  • My earrings and necklace set are a free gift at RealEvil Industries. They have many gifts out for free at their store in addition to this gold and pearl set,  and the group is free to join. You can also grab these fashionable accessories for free on the Marketplace
  • My blue eyeshadow and purple lipsticks comes from the lucky board prizes at Trend. Their group currently costs 250 Linden to join, and they often give out gifts, lucky boards and hundreds of store credits. Both the lipstick and the eyeshadow are sized for Catwa HD, Lelutka Evolution, and Genus, and they also include BOM layers. 

I’m going to go enjoy my lunch on the grass now, FabFree. I might even call up a friend because there is way too much pie and cheese for me to eat by myself. 

Until next time!

Melty but Yummy!

ice cream final

Hey gang!

This ice cream cone reminds me of growing up, it was always so hot in the summer when the ice cream man came around, that you had to eat your ice cream fast or it would just melt away in record time leaving you with nothing but a puddle!  That said a soft serve cone with chocolate ice cream is just what I can use after a long day of shopping.

So thanks to a tip from Aline, I scooped up this absolutely adorbs dress free at The Makeover Room Event.  It is a free group gift from Entice, and the group is free to join (Makeover Room Group).  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

So super cute and versatile, I feel like this can be for a casual date or even something more fancy.  Now if I don’t drip ice cream all over mine, I’ll tuck this into my closet (inventory!) for another time, it’s a keeper!

Happy almost the weekend gang!

Draped in Velvet

Draped in Velvet

Are you guys fans of Seinfeld at all?  I might call myself a rather giant Seinfeld fan.  It’s one of those shows that never failed to make me laugh (out loud even!) and the situations always related back to life in so many amusing ways.  Now I’m sure you’re asking yourself why I’m thinking of Seinfeld when I’m clearly heading out for a night on the town dressed in head to toe pink.  Well, the fact that my dress is made of crushed velvet just had me thinking “I’d drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable!”.  Well, apparently now it is.

Très Chic, Indeed

So…are you ready for yet another event filled to the brim with free gifts?  You’re here at FabFree, so I’m assuming the answer is a resounding yes.  I found my way over to Très Chic and got excited that they’re celebrating an anniversary!  I joined the group for free, then clicked on the little boxes at each stall (I had to TP in and out a few times for everything to rez, so you may find that helpful as well).  Here’s what I got:

  • FREE dress by Rosary sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy and comes with an HUD to change to 5 different colours
  • FREE shoes by Venus Shoes sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink
  • FREE lipstick by TREND with appliers for Catwa, Genus, Lelutka Origins & Lelutka Evolution

This round of Très Chic is going until June 10th

Happy Anniversary, Très Chic!

Hey FabFree! How’s it goin’?  I’m just hanging out and enjoying all the awesome goodies I found last weekend! I have a lot of freebies and group gifts to share with you today so I am going to jump straight in! 

Goodies @ The Gacha Garden

You can pick up a few gifts at this round of The Gacha Garden and I am showing a few here, including:

  • Free BOM stockings in Purple, Black and Brown from Morbid Mausoleum
  • Free heart earrings and glasses from No Cabide. This is the same gift that Aline blogged yesterday; you can pick them up at both events for free!
  • The table next to me is also a free gift at The Gacha Garden! The table comes in several options, and options to use the table with or without the candelabra, goblet and yummy chocolates on it.

There are a few gifts around the sim, so enjoy all the free gifts this round has to offer! You just need to join the free Bellatech group and the join code for that group is here:

Gachas!

I also had the chance to play some fun gachas at The Gacha Garden. Most of my outfit, including the dress, boots, the skull headband, the backpack and the cat handbag are all part of the Gothic Lolita Gacha by MOoH! Each play is 50L a try, and you can see the gacha key below of everything available on the gacha. When you play 20 times you will receive the heart choker for free, and I just love the cute little skull choker too!

Dress & Boots Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

More gifties!

I also am wearing a couple more group gifts from around the grid to create this look.

  • The cute heart animation on my chest is the latest group gift at LuluB. The LuluB group costs  150L to join, and this gift is adorable! The little heart moves around and flashes lights and sits on your chest.
  • My gorgeous lipstick is the latest group gift at Trend. The pack comes with 12 colours, with appliers for Lelutka Evo and Origin, Catwa HD and Pro, and Genus heads. The Trend group currently costs 250L to join.
  • My gorgeous auburn eyes are a group gift at Avi-Glam. The Avi-Glam group costs 10 L to join and they have a number of beautiful eyes available in their group. These eyes come in appliers for Catwa, Lelutka Evo, Genus, and BOM/system layers and omega appliers.
  • My skin- called Lotte – is a camper chair prize at 7 Deadly S[K]ins which you can get if you camp on a chair for 50 minutes. This offer is available for group members of 7 Deadly S[K]ins , and their group currently costs 295L to join. This skin is a BOM skin designed for Lelutka Evo heads. 
  • Finally, this adorable hair is a free gift from {Limerence} over at the current anniversary round of FaMESHed, and it comes in a number of cute pastel colours! The FaMESHed group is free to join. Make sure you go back to Aline’s post here to see more gifts you can get at the FaMESHed anniversary. FaMESHed ends on May 27th so you still have some time to collect all the gifties!

The Book of Spells

Book of Spells

I have always had an affinity for all things fantasy and magical! I love to crawl up with a good fantasy book any day- let me escape to a wonderous, magical place! Today I will be sharing an amazing free magic spell book, and a few other magical gifts.

The “Trouble Maker” Spell Book

This glorious spell book I am levitating is the latest free group gift at Birth. The book comes in black, silver or gold binding, and the animations are wonderful. The gift also includes light particles for the book and your hand. Watch the video by Birth below to see the full animated effects. This is an amazing gift, so thank you Birth. ❤ The Birth group is free to join so go snatch this gift before they change it to a new one!

Juna

The hair I am wearing is the latest group gift at EscalateD, which you can pick up at their main store. Juna is a beautiful, messy style, and I paired the hair with colour huds that EscalateD has for sale at Fantasy Faire. The group gift comes with its own naturals and unnaturals colour huds as well, but it’s great that you can collect and used other colour huds on any hair made by this designer.  Juna is a new favourite style of mine! The EscalateD VIP group costs 99L to join and past group gifts, including more universal hair colouring huds, are still available to collect.

❤ New Group Gift

BOM Goodies

The last couple items I have to share with you are Bakes on Mesh items. First off, this gorgeous black tattoo of the roses and chains shown on my chest is a group gift for members of the Carol G Tattoo  group. Every since converting to BOM, I like playing around with tattoos and this tattoo at Carol G is gorgeous. The Carol G VIP group costs 200L to join.

The second item I wish to share is a stunning eyeliner set by Trend. These are a group gift, and Trend is temporarily FREE to join! Make sure to collect all the gorgeous group gifts while you stop by. ❤

Appliers Included

  • Genus
  • BOM

See you soon, FabFree!
