Counting My Blessings

telsiope FF GG, No Match No Tendencies

Happy 1st Friday of 2022! Although the real world is wild, crazy, and insane here in SL we have so many blessings. We usually don’t catch viruses or diseases here (at least I haven’t gotten any). But always remember this – boys have cooties!

Our fabulous, marvelous designers are always showering us with gifts or offering great prices an promos or sales. It’s fun to jump around the grid to discover new goodies. I’ve been doing a bit of this and that, going here and there to find fashion items you may like.

One of the newest FabFree group gifts (Free to join) comes courtesy of Telsiope’s Couture. This lovely delicately textured dress is Victoria. I love the way the gold threads swirl while making lovely patterns on the cloth. You could use this as casual or a semi-dressy wear.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • SLink HG

While I was scoping out goodies I made a trip to The Free Dove to see what was new. I found these tres chic heels from {Le’la}, the Unka Heels (Free gift at The Free Dove/Free group join needed). If you prefer a shiny shoe you will love these. The package includes sizes for Maitreya and Slink as well as an 8 color change hud.

Next I tripped on over to No_Match. There is a new Next Up game with a new to me style – No_Tendencies. Each try at the machine costs $50L. If you haven’t tried one yet it’s like a gacha but you know what you’ll get before you spend the $L. I scored this Black/white version on my 1st try. The included hud has 9 different shades from whites/greys/blacks. I’ll be going there often to catch the red hud!

Off I go again to scour the grid for goodies!

Peace,

Cre

Batty

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I hope all is going well with you on this fine evening. I have several awesome gifts to show you today. I am still rocking the halloween look! The outfit I have come up with today is all about bats, but I also have added some pumpkins and cobwebs. I hope you like it!

A Bit more Hunting @ Malus Park

First off is the amazing bat-patterned green and black dress. This is made by one of my favourite designers Starlight Apparel  on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. Starlight Apparel’s hunt prizes include some cute pumpkin earrings which I am also wearing. Each prize costs 10 linden.

The hints to find the prizes for Starlight Apparel’s items are:

  1. Find me near a gigantic fruit!
  2. Help yourself to a rink at the bar.
  3. Joined a couple of firey pumpkins for a chat!
  4. Tucked behind a magical stone.
  5. You may need to arch backwards to see me.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Belleza Freya
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Inithium Kupra
  • Signature Alice

Little Black Boots

The suede boots I am wearing today are another great freebie from Tastic. You can find these at Free Dove for free. The boots come in a full fatpack of colours!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic
  • Voluptuous

Last Chance

There are only a few days left to go to the Halloween Shop & Hop before it closes on October 31st. Some great gifts I am showing from the event are:

  • Beautiful pumpkin rings at Kunglers‘ booth.
  • An adorable bat mouth keychain at Zombie Suicide‘s booth. The keychain comes in a fatpack of colours!
  • My gorgeous black lipstick is from a pack of halloween makeup made by Trend! They currently have 250L free store credits at their booth at the event. Remember to read my post here to see how you can get 1,000L in free store credits at the Trend mainstore before October 28th in addition to this 250L credit (1,250L credits in total).
  • Finally, I am showing Sintiklia‘s gift again, which you can get here. This hair gift was originally blogged by Arielle here so make sure you go read her post to see how she styled it with even more freebies from the Shop & Hop. The hair includes a style hud and a pack of natural, ombres, and halloween-themed colour options. I’m wearing the cobwebs version of the hair and it’s so spooky!

Their group will be free to join until October 30th. They also have a bunch of lucky boards to play! If that isn’t cause for celebration I don’t know what is. With my credits, I purchased the witch eyeshadow and lipstick! I love it!

Ethereal

Ethereal

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!

Night at the Museum

Coming Soon

Happy Monday, FabFree! It’s time for a night at the museum and I am stoked. I even brought my little puppy with me. I’ll just have to hide him in my purse to keep him away from the artifacts. I’m sure the pupster and I can sneak in some selfies when the security guards aren’t looking!

Your Shopping List

While I’m at the museum, you can go freebie shopping. Here is a shopping list of the fab finds I have on today:

  • This cute hairstyle is a lucky chair prize for group members of MINA Hair. The MINA Hair VIP group costs 200L to join. This style comes with a blonds colour HUD. 
  • My cute black and red plaid boots are a free gift at the Free Dove at the StephaneL designer booth. They have three amazing pairs of free shoes at the booth. Like all Free Dove gifts, you will need to join the free Free Dove group to get the boots!
  • The beautiful choker I have on is a free gift from Sorumin on the Marketplace. It’s simply outstanding! I do not usually like chokers, but I love how detailed the rose is. There is colour HUD that comes with the choker that allows for a high level of customization (changing colours of the choker, the rose and the metals). 
  • My wicked shorts are by Nerdy Girl, and they only cost 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Nerdy Girl has a load of dollarbies on their Marketplace store so scoop them up. 

Go With the Trend 

The last order of business today is all about Trend. I love this store, and I am more lucky letter prizes from this designer. I am currently wearing the sweet temptation lipstick and the hot eyeshadow. Trend’s group currently costs 250 lindens to join. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Pick them all up there’s quite a few and each one comes in several natural colours.

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. 

Luncheon On the Grass- 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!
