Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

At Anchor

Snapshot_011
I have been digging in the garden and weed pulling for a week!  While it’s shaping up, I am covered in scratches from rose thorns and my nails are a mess. I think it’s time to set myself at anchor for a day and recover the state of my manicure.

Echo Echo Echo

The new group gift at Echo was just what I needed for a relaxing, lay in the sun day like today.  This sweet anchor printed halter top features a summery draped open back which gives it a real breezy feel.  This group is currently 25L to join (it will soon go up to 75L), but I gather from all of the empty frames in the VIP section that she will be adding more group gifts!

Sizes included:

  • XS-XL mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic
  • Ebody

Ring My Bell…. Bottoms

Snapshot_003
Good evening Fabulous Readers!  Tomorrow it’s back to the old grind again, but for now, I can enjoy the last couple hours of my long weekend off with some peace, quiet… and fabulous free stuff!  The family has dispersed, the house is quiet, chocolate wrappers are all over the place, and my pants are feeling tight -.-.

The Fabulous Free Stuff

BlackRose has a really nice April group gift set out for their inworld group members (free to join!!) that includes the Olive Bell Pants & Tied Shirt as shown on my avatar.  Whatever body type you are in, whether it’s mesh or system, I’m sure there is a size included for you as the folder is packed with different sizes (even leg lengths for the pants), and alpha layers too just in case.  This set fits my Maitreya Lara Mesh Body like a glove, and I imagine the other fits are just as well made.

Here’s  hoping tomorrow does not feel like Monday on Tuesday!

Out On The Water, Soakin’ Wet

SatusInc60L
Good morning FabFree Readers! Recently on the blog, I showed you a new group gift at Satus Inc. [HERE], but you should also know that when Satus Voltz puts out new items in his store, sometimes he puts them out at 60L for a while week as an introductory price.

Got That White T-Shirt, Cling’n To Her Chest

This week he put out the Summer Hot Tank Top & Short Jeans in an array of colours, of course at the introductory price of 60L per set and I was inspired to head to the beach for some sun and fun.  I am wearing the “wet” version in the top but there are several other dry coloured versions to choose from as well.

Size Availability & Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

It’s Cardigan Season

Snapshot_005
OoOo! I was excited to see the new subscribo gift at {ViVi} because I was itching to do a casual inbetweason (the season in between of course) outfit!  You know.. those days when you are not sure if you can get away with sandals or if you need a sweater? 🙂

{ViVi} Subscribomatic members can pick up the Debbie Cardigan Sweater that comes with the undershirt or without for FREE in brown, which is most excellent for this time of year.  I have paired it up with some of my fave jeans from my inventory ([AUX] Belted Flairs) and some sandals (Essenz Tampa), but you could wear it with a skirt or some classier pants if you wanted.

I also wanted to point out my new Ploom Mystic V2 hair, because it was just 75L per play at The Fantasy Gacha which I thought was a super price for such a sweet hairstyle that comes with the curly hairbase too!  I have no idea how I got so lucky, but I managed to get the blonde pack that I was after in the first try!  I should go pick up a lotto ticket!

Romantic Rose

Snapshot_004Hiya Fabulouses!  Today I am writing you to let you know about a really, really awesome group gift at Overhigh!  I actually saw an advertisement for another one of their group gifts (which is a very sexy red skirt), so I went down there to pick it up and see if I could put something together to show you, and beside the skirt gift, there was another gift!  The Rose Dress…   The soft shade of pink, the realistic texturing, and the adorable collar…  I think I am in <3!  The OVH inworld group is free to join, so I am not sure what you are still doing here reading!  GO GO GO!  Whether you are looking for something cute or something sexy, Overhigh’s group gifts have you covered 😉

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. 😦 But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! 🙂 My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

Wicked Peach Advert Wicked Gift

Blogging soon!

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! 😀

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. 🙂 My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. 🙂

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! 😉

contemplate sundays.

Yay to Sunday! While Saturdays are for running chores and shopping and whatnot, Sunday is usually the day to chillout and relax at home (in preperation for the Monday blues of course).

One of the greatest woes of being a home owner is the finding the most suitable deco, and in the case of SL and my post, beautiful and FREE deco. Hence, I thought I’d show some great (free) finds around SL you can use to furnish your home, and hopefully, you’ll find your home as relaxing as mine. I usually like to begin my search for furniture on Marketplace, and nordari. happens to have lots of beautiful and cheap items. To complement my house, I’ve put on a comfy and pretty jumpsuit from Ashmoot’s Join the Picnic Hunt along with a pair of sandals from Room of AMO.
