Deja Vu & Gifts For You

Sissboomsentinus
Hey there Fabulouses! I’m just taking some time to myself after work tonight on my deck doing a little light reading, while it is still nice and sunny.  I am SO glad that the summer months are drawing near so that I can enjoy the outside once again.  Winter months are just awful here leaving in the dark and coming home in the dark!

So what’s my post all about today?

My attire today is put together with some really great group gift finds that I will tell you about below:

Deja Vu!

This hairstyle called Deja was previously released as a group gift in the TRUTH inworld group (300L to join), and was previously blogged by Kathryn [HERE], but I wanted to give it a re-mention because it has been re-released as a Truth group gift in the updated colours and with the stylist HUD!  Even if you have this gift from before when it came out, make sure you pick up the update in notices!

Siss Boom Has Me Tongue Tied

The wrapped top you see me wearing today is called Tongue Tied and is available as a free group gift to members of the Siss Boom inworld group.  It comes in black, gold and silver and is available in several sizes as listed below.  This group is 500L to join, but there is a load of gifts on the VIP wall to grab!

Sizes included:

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

Free Jeans!

One can never have too many pairs of jeans, and these ones in particular are worn and torn in all the rip places… The Mariya cuffed jeans are a free group gift at Sentinus for joining their FREE inworld group.  Sizes included are mesh XXS – L and an alpha layer is provided.

Adventures in Babysitting

Adventure 3
Hello there, Fab Free!  In my last post {HERE}, I told you about the Flawless Sim’s Adventures in Babysitting quest that Ripley and I had recently completed.  Today I have a quick post to share three more of the 11 free prizes that are awarded at the completion of the quest.

A Bird in the Hand

First of all, the Pretty Saffron Finch perched on my finger came from Zo Awesum.  The cute little guy is so adorable, and comes with his own cage, but I kind of figured he’d appreciate some freedom so he could stretch his wings.  Best of all, he is completely free when you finish the babysitting quest.  When I was a little girl in real life, I used to sit quietly below my father’s bird feeder, with my hand outstretched, just hoping a feathered friend might land on my fingers, but it never happened.  At least I get to experience that in SL. 🙂

A Free Top….Why Knot?

My free, long sleeved, knotted top from Tori Stylez was well worth all the searching for those two wandering twins.  Lily features a delicate floral print and realistic folds in the texture.  It includes a color change HUD packed with 8 options, so it’s like getting 8 different shirts in one.  I chose to pair  the crop top with simple denim shorts, but you could also dress it up with a skirt or a pair of longer pants on a cool day.  I really like how the ends of the ties dangle down.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

    • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
    • alpha layer for classic avatars
    • Curvy
    • Fine
    • Freya
    • Hourglass
    • Isis
    • Maitreya
    • Physique
    • TMP
    • Venus

Adventure 1

The Mark of Beauty

Sometimes in SL, it seems like everything is just too perfect, too flawless.  With the free Adventures in Babysitting gift from Arte, you can add a touch of whimsy and visual interest to an otherwise perfect complexion.  With the Catwa Adored Moles applier, you can wear two versions of a sprinkling of beauty marks.  I think they provide a lovely touch of character, and help to draw the eye to your face. Below, I’ve included snapshots of my face with no beauty mark applier (on the left) and with the second variation  of the moles (on the right), so you can get an idea of the range of options available. One of the wonderful things about SL is the ability to change the appearance of your skin with just a few clicks.

Adventures 5

Well, that wraps up my coverage of the Adventures in Babysitting quest at the Flawless Sim.  The event runs only until May 29th, and grants you 11 free prizes in all  at the completion of the quest.  I enjoyed reading the story as I traveled from store to store, and was very happy with the quality of the gifts at the end.  To begin your own adventure, teleport to the Flawless Sim, and click the event sign to obtain the necessary Hud.  Wear the HUD, which will appear as a red oval on your screen, say yes when prompted for permission, then left touch the HUD and select “Adventure in” on the sub menu.   Directions for completing the quest will appear on your screen.

Until my next post, happy shopping questing!

More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day, and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! XD

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for fitmesh (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! 😀

Simply Amazing

Amazing

Oh, what a feeling…

In just a few short days I will have the next 2 months and change to myself, answering to nobody and only having to cater to her needs… (uhh …I meant my dog, not sure who you were thinking I was talking about.) The pressure of the past month are slowly slipping into just a memory and I have nothing but sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. And you can also look amazing in the group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This month’s gift is a green striped Men’s Shirt. This shirt comes in the stadard XS-XL sizes plus fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

I paired the shirt with  new items from A&D Clothing. The Patrick Pants and the Nautics Shoes can be purchased individually or in fatpacks. I always choose the fatpacks because like Pokemon, I got to catch them all. Y’all have an amazing day!

Eye Candy

FurtacorGarageFair
Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I am still happily unboxing gifts and dollarbies that I have picked up at The Garage Fair.  Last night I opened up the 1L item by Furtacor and was very pleasantly surprised with this sexy little summer dress.

For Just 1L…

You too can own the Furtacor Candy Dress as shown on my avatar for just one little linden by visitng the Furtacor display at The Garage Fair.  This dress comes in mesh (with alpha), fitmesh and Slink specific body sizes and has a texture change hud with 30 different top and skirt combinations and three options for lace.  I went with the black floral print for both the top and the skirt, but you can choose textures for the top and skirt separately.  There are tons of solids and prints to choose from if flowers aren’t your thing.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XXS – L Fitmesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

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

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!

Bright Eyes, Blue Denim

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulouses!  He’s stuck at work on this glorious warm spring day, while I have the day off ;).   Of course I’d rather we had the day off together, but I decided I’d try and make the best of it and head out to the park nearby this afternoon to enjoy the splendors of spring that I have been so missing over the long winter, like the smell of green grass, and flowers.. and the tickle of butterflies!

While I have your attention here, I have some exciting free hair news today as well as a little tidbit to share with you about a sweet summer denim dress I found as a group gift.

The Astonishing Truth

I’m sure you don’t need me to say it again… but I will… I’m a big fan of Truth Hair.  I wear it quite often on the blog, and inworld.  I was so excited to see that with his new group gift for May called Kare, he has updated his textures with more gloss and shine and has also included a Hairstylist HUD that allows you to shift the hair around your shoulders a few different ways – which is fantastic because there will be no more interfering with collars and jackets!!  This group has a one time fee of 350L to join, but seriously…  a whole fatpack of awesome hair every month…  Nuff said!

Never underestimate the power of a little denim dress

It’s a little tough to see in the photo above, so I took a few minutes and snapped another angle so you could see the Camilla Dress in Sky Denim that you can pick up as a free group gift at TRS Designs.  This group is free to join and there are multiple gifts to score.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Bring on the Night

Bring on the Night

Hello there Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  This week, Ripley and I happened upon a new-to-us store called Klara Original Mesh.  While I explored the shop, my bargain seeking hound padded up the stairs and sniffed out this gorgeous, full length gown, which is a free gift for members of the Maitreya, Gifts, Sales & News group (completely free to join).

Stylish Evening Attire

The Eva Night Gown features a high neck in front and a floor length hemline, paired with a dramatically draped back that offers a daring glimpse of skin.  I love the simple, elegant design, the lacey texture of the fabric, and the way the gown is slightly flared at the bottom so my feet are free to move.  In addition to this free frock, the designer also has four other gifts set out for various groups, plus 6 boards which offer generous discounts on dresses for Klara Waco Style group members.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Off to Discover More Fabulous Finds

I love the weekends when Ripley and I are free to wander the grid to locate more fashions to share with our favorite readers.  I’m sure it won’t be long before we return with yet another budget friendly discovery.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Road to My Heart

The road to my heart 1
Hello Fabulouses!  It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is only nine days away.  So much has gone on in my real life the past couple of months, it seems like the last time I looked at my calendar, it was the beginning of December, and now it’s almost the second week of February!  Lucky for me, I already have a special Valentine who is always by my side.  The road to this girl’s heart is paved with paw prints, specifically, my pal Ripley’s.

Just in Time for the Holday

With my free jumper from AnaSTyle, I am all set for V-day with plenty of lindens left to splurge on Ripley snacks for my sweetheart.  This darling, satiny red outfit has slender straps, golden hearts, and delicate lace trim.  I really like the gathered fabric at the waistline and how it emphasizes the curve of my figure.   A gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group, this package includes my entire outfit, not just the clothing.  My heart choker, shiny silver earrings, bracelet, hand held heart, and red heels for slink high feet are tucked inside the box as well.  There are so many items included in this one gift!  I love it when I can get a complete outfit in one fell swoop! To pick up this Valentine’s Day ensemble for yourself, just teleport over the AnaSTyle, switch to the SLF&O tag, and click the gift sign.  The group is free to join, and the gift is available to you for no charge as well.

The road to my Heart 2

What’s Included:

  • Romper with lace in XS, S, M, L, XL Fitmesh sizes
  • Alpha layer for romper
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies
  • Slink high sandals
  • Heart bracelet
  • Heart earrings
  • Heart choker
  • Valentine’s heart to hold

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
