She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.

Good evening Fabulouses!  I nearly logged off and went to bed, but then I remembered I wanted to tell you about a couple of sweet deals I found recently and they are fairly time sensitive, so I’m back… half asleep to give you the news!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Snapshot_003

Hi there Fabulous Readers! I just don’t even believe it… I have barely gotten over the excitement about the first TRUTH Hair group gift that came out a couple weeks back (First shown [HERE] by Kathryn and is still available for pick up instore), and now in celebration of 4500 group members, Truth Hawks has sent out another fatpack of hair in the notices!  This group is 265L to join, but currently you can pick up both gifts in full fatpacks… so that’s a killer deal in my opinion!

Sugar is her name…

Sugar is her name, and a loose top bun updo with a variety of bang and whispy attachments is her game!  The versatility of these short/long whisps will be especially handy in this sweater/jacket/scart season so that you can find the right pieces that don’t interfere with your outfit!

Where to find it:

According to the Truth Customer Service Rep, Padma Scorpio… “Gifts will expire in notices after 14 days and then will be available in the main store for a total duration of 1 month after which they will no longer be available.” (this message was found in group notices as well)

Side note about the pose used:

I have used Raindale ‘s Tree Swing Spring Gift Pose that you can pick up for 1L at the Raindale shop!  No need to join a group – just go grab it for a linden😉.  It comes with a few different natural swing sitting poses, adjustment and swing option.

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

Cynfully Pretty In Purple and Pink

Photo 7
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  After a long work week, how about treating yourself to start your weekend?  Ripley and I uncovered some Fantastic Finds that will leave you feeling indulged and pampered.

She’s Got a Brand New Dress

Cynful, the first stop on our “pick me up” journey, has a free, pink to purple ombre Cynnosence dress for the Cynful Group (free to join).  The gift also comes with another version, which is a pink to deep-pink ombre.  With its curve-hugging design, this mini is ideal for some Friday night fun.

Mesh Body Appliers Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Keep Calm and Polish On

Next, I switched to my Fab Free Group tag, and popped on over to ZOZ.   Here, you can spoil yourself with a new, free manicure, which is free just for Fabulously Free in SL group members.  The “Faded Winter” slink nail polish applier contains 9 glossy hues from warm reds to cool blues.  You can find the vendor picture here so you can take a peek at all the options available.

Add a Little Bling and Final Touches

For only 10L, I added a bit of whimsy with Zyn’s Vintage Mood Ring.  This playful trinket changes colors, and even includes a color interpretation chart.  It was fun to check to see what the different color combinations represented.  Ripley got a little nervous when he noticed that the ring was red in this picture (it’s supposed to represent anger), but I assured him I wasn’t upset at all.  Silly boy!

After slipping on a pair of strappy sandals from Basta! Footwear, a touch of glossy lipstick from Arte, and Catwa eyeliner from Izzie’s, I felt rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready for the weekend.  It is my sincere hope that you will take time to indulge yourself, and do more of what makes you happy.  You deserve it, wonderful readers!  Until next time, happy shopping!

Reaching for the moon

Reaching for the moon

I don’t know about you dear readers but sometimes I use this blog as something of a destination guide. My fellow bloggers are such creative photographers that more often than not I find myself curious to see the sims that they’ve used as their backdrop. Follow your bliss is one such location and for this little adventure I’ve chosen to wear the aptly named Joy from Luzifee that you can get for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group. In the days of autumn oranges, browns, and golds, this smock dress will bring a cheerful dash of color to your Second Life wardrobe. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size with a good alpha layer included in the package. Not only is the uneven hemline of the dress unique but I adore the lovely patchwork pattern in the front of this dress as well. Even with my steadily growing inventory, I can safely say I don’t have anything in it like this free offering from Luzifee. So! What are you waiting for? Follow these steps to getting this gift and more:

First copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Secondlife Viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Second, click on the link in local chat and you’re done! Welcome to the group! Time to pick up some wonderful gifts!

I got lucky in finding the items to tie this whole look together. In the case of these boots, quite literally as I got them off the lucky boards at Sn@tch. Bring a alot a bit of a boots junkie I was ecstatic when I won the pair pictured. It was even more exciting when I discovered that there were a lot of options when it came to choosing the appearance of these boots as you can tint and texture different parts individually according to your fancy. There’s even the option to make the spikes shinier which I definitely did.

The hairstyle I’m sporting is one of the older ones from Truth called Roma and the good news is that you can get the color packs of all of the hairstyles upstairs in the discount area for only 50L. I’ve already a collection of hairs from this merchant and will certainly be sneaking up those stairs more often to expand!

I Have A Song To Sing

Snapshot_003Guess what FabFree?! Addams has two brand new releases…. and … one of them is a fatpack of colours given out as a free group gift!

Addams released their new Rebecca Bodysuit in Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and TMP mesh sizing along with a hefty 13 option texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the bodysuit and laces as well as turn the bottom off if you wish to wear just the top.  The Addams inworld group is free to join and there are plenty of other gifts to pick up as well, such as the items previously shown on FabFree:

I purchased their second new release for 199L (which is the Flora Flare Jeans) as well because it was a great price and looks super hot with the bodysuit.  It features a serious killer butt too…  try a demo and see for yourself!

Relocation & Giftification

Snapshot_005Hi there Fabulous Readers🙂 Today I am showing off one of the three new group gifts that you can pick up at the shiny new Miss Chelsea location after you join their inworld group.  All three group gifts are very cute, but I usually like to dedicate one outfit per post, so I’m displaying the Leia Outfit this time…  Which is a one piece long T-shirt and denim shorts combo.  The short come with a texture change hud too, so you can switch up your colours a few different ways.  This outfit is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I should also mention the pose I used in  my photo today, because I picked it up in a set for 10L! Le Poppycock also moved to a new location (what’s up with everyone moving lately? lol), and they have a re-opening offer that is open to everyone.  The I Love Myself Selfie pose pack that comes with the cell phone and a few poses is just 10L, which is a super inexpensive price!  It is a lot of fun for profile pictures too – so pick it up!

If You Are Chilly, Here Take My Sweater

Snapshot_002

Hi there Fabulouses!  It’s a bit drizzly and dismal this week where I am, and I can sure tell that fall is just around the corner.  It’s (unfortunately) time to dig up some warmer clothes, just in case.  I suppose I was following suit in Second Life too, because I remembered when I found a cute summer dress at Starr Fashion a couple of weeks back [HERE]…  There was a sweater/jeans outfit as a free gift as well.  Of course at the time a sweater and jeans seemed silly as the weather was blistering hot so I didn’t pick it up, and went back yesterday to grab it.

The Lenore Jeans are black with blue pockets and come belted.  The off the shoulder Nina shirt is red and is textured in a cozy light knit.  Both items are available in an array of mesh sizes, and also mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink.

The free gift in question at Starr Fashion can be found on the gifts wall near the back close to the midnight mania and mini mania offers.  There are two ways you can obtain this gift…  either by joining the group and touching the vendor or not joining the group and paying 1L that is auto-refunded to you.

Precious Punk Justus

Untitled

Good evening Fabulous Readers:).   I have returned from my little trip and am refreshed and ready to…  ahhhh  who am I kidding?  I come back from these little trips more tired than when I left, and I need a weekend off to recover from my weekend off…  alas it’s back to the grind for me!

It’s always a nice break for me to pop into Second Life and dig up some affordable/free finds though, and tonight I found a really precious dress that I thought you all might like to know about.  At Punk Justus, near the back of the shop by their midnight mania board you will find the darling floral printed Little Geisha halter dress that I am wearing in this photo as a free gift (just priced at 0L – no group required).  The sizes included are XXS-L fitted mesh as well as a Slink Physique mesh body specific size.

I suppose I better get back to unpacking – enjoy your evening!
