Waiting for the Girls in FK Papillion

Waiting for You

All my blogging sisters have run over to the Shop & Hop and left me waiting back at the Sorority house with a bucket of champagne…so I called a virtual uber and ran to some new stores I’ve been hearing great reviews about and found myself at FK Papillion.  This sweet little dress, Enje, comes in 40 different colors/patterns and was a group gift!  The Group costs 20L to join, but you get two very nice group outfits AND a 50L gift card to spend in the store.  Most outfits are discounted for VIPS and so, you get about 50% off a new outfit with the GC.

Dress Sizes:

  • Maitreya (L& P)
  • Slink (H & P)
  • Belleza (F, I & V)
  • Legacy (C & P)
  • eBody (CL & CU)

The Girl Next Door in a [Well Made] Outfit

[Well Made] Astra Outfit
I am a sucker for a nicely made outfit with parts I can choose to wear or not.  The Astra Outfit is this week’s 50L Weekly Limited selection from [Well Made].  There are actually three parts to it…the sweater, the skirt AND a warm fuzzy fleece jacket.  I chose not to wear the jacket because it covered this amazing sweater that I think is so incredibly pretty.  The HUD has many colors to mix and match to create a look that truly reflects my girl-next-door personality.

But…here is the catch.  There are a limited number of copies for this fabulous outfit, soooooo…run, run, run!  Go grab her!

A Little Bit of Indie

Indie Style 2.0
I like to give myself challenges.  I had a half hour over lunch to “work” in SL, and I committed myself to finding a cool outfit to share with you. For this challenge, I could rely on any of the 5 Minute or 1 Hour groups I belong to and any sales I ran into while at a store.  However, my cap was 100L for all parts of the outfit (clothes, hair, jewelry, and shoes).

Safyra‘s did not disappoint!  Within the first ten minutes, a 5 Lindens 1 Hour deal was posted.  I ran over quick and grabbed the very nice jumpsuit on sale.  She comes with lots of colors. But….while trying to dodge the incoming avatars, I looked around and three OTHER sales caught my eye.  The outfit above is the top from the Set 010 Sunday Sale (35L) which comes with a cute bra/shirt, skirt and boots (the bra, shirt, and skirt all have a color HUD; the boots do not) and the pants and shoes from the Janice set on sale (55L) which comes with a blouse and HUD for both.

Sizes:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Slink (for the Boots in the 010 package)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

I picked up the FREE!!! subscriber gift (a cool choker with a butterfly) at Zuri which went nicely with this outfit. I love the resizer on her jewelry. It makes everything so much easier!

I had picked up a bunch of No_Match gifts earlier in the day, so I decided to use my time to find the first hairstyle that went with the outfit.  This style is called No_Sea and comes with all of the different color fatpacks. This was a free group gift with 50L membership.

By the time I had picked out the hair and fussed with the colors, I only had 5 minutes left, so I ran over to my studio to snap this pose.

I managed to get everything I needed for less than 100L in the space of 30 minutes!  WOO!!!

Do you have a challenge in mind for me to do?  Hit me up in the comments below!!

Classic

Classic

Heyya FabFree! When we are writing up our posts here on the blog, we use the “Classic” block style for Word Press. Simple, clear and… well… classic. When I sat down to write today, I pressed the “Classic” button and thought to myself, “Yeah… classic that’s this gown and jewelry combo. So classy and classic.” Now you know my title process. LOL Quite the author, I am.

So on to the gown and y’all know I love a nice ball gown. This is the “Carol Taty Gown” from Anne Silver Couture and you can pick it up for free with your Fabulously Free Group tag. When you think about all the parties and social events coming up in the next few months, having a stunning gown like this is a necessity. The details are so nice. The skirt has that look of quality velvet and the bodice has a playful embroidered pattern. This will definitely make my party list this year.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My new jewelry in amethyst and silver couldn’t have come up at a better time. While I was looking for something sparkly to wear with my new gown, I thought of one of my long time favs – Zuri. So I popped over and there it was, “The Medusa Set” on the Teleport HUB gift board. Talk about good timing. I put on my tag and collected my new choker and earrings ablaze with gorgeous purple amethysts.  Teleport HUB has a one time fee of 10L to join but then you have access to hundreds of gifts just for Group members.

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 03/24/2018 – Zuri

Zuri Entrance
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! So I will just come right out and admit it, I completely dropped the ball on this week’s Designer Friday post. However, do not let that deter you from all the fabulous shopping at Zuri. This enormous jewelry store is a jewelry lovers paradise. Zuri has everything your bejeweled heart could desire. There are items for men as well as the ladies, and even couples items like wedding bands. There are also many gifts, sales, and other offers happening all over this 3 story jewelry store! At the entrance shown above, you can get your first FREE gift from Zuri by joining their subscriber.
Zuri Gifts and Offers
As you head inside the Zuri main store you can follow the pink footprints to some Steals & Deals along with Midnight Mania boards and other awesome discounts. First however, you’ll want to make a pit-stop at the Zuri circulation desk. Not only can you pick up the info you need about an Easter hunt happening in the store, there are a hand full of gifts waiting to be picked up. The Zuri in world group has a one time join fee of 299 linden. This grants you instant access to the several group gifts, the group Midnight Mania, shopping discounts and much more. There’s even a board at the circulation desk that will give you a note card about all the group perks.

On the wall near/behind the circulation desk is also where you’ll find the Zuri exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. To get this FREE gift you just need to wear your Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. The fun doesn’t stop there, you’ll find a little area on the first floor with the currently available Zuri group gifts. From there you’ll definitely want to explore the second floor.
Zuri Get Lucky
On the second floor of the Zuri Jewelry store you’ll find more dazzling goodness. I spotted two Lucky Chairs, and a yummy looking Lucky Dip. Each of these offers a lovely jewelry prize. I would even consider the Lucky Chair prizes to be unisex. There is also a third floor of Zuri Jewelry to explore. You will definitely want to check that out, there is a cool little observatory up there as well. Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for those Easter eggs! Happy Shopping Fab Free!

An Easter Hunt.

Zuri is hosting an Easter Hunt through the month of April. There are 3 eggs to find and they are just 10L each (or they are free if you are a member of the Zuri Jewelry group). One egg contains the beautiful necklace you see me wearing. One contains my earrings, and one contains my bracelet (upper picture). For just 30L you can have the entire set. It’s a steal for your Easter basket!

Blowing in the wind.

I think there was a breeze in the air at the Garden of Absentia where I took my picture… or maybe it was just this beautiful free to all gift that I picked up from Exile hair. Right now if you hurry over to Exile, there is a gift out for both guys and gals. This is “Gina” for the gals. It is a free gift and comes in a full fatpack of colors. Hurry, you won’t want to miss this beautiful style!

A hunting we shall go!

blog1I do love a good hunt and in this case 3! Lets dive right in so you can have fun hunting too.
Our 1st hunt is at the Jewels Isle Sim Hunt (also being refereed to as the Zuri Hunt), this is a sim wide hunt including several well known shops and runs now thru Oct.  This hunt has allowed each store to set the price of their item so they run from FREE to 25L. If you touch one of the hunt signs when you land it will give you a note card that will show you a pic and give you a landmark to each shop so that is worth giving a look to to see if any of the other prizes might tickle your fancy to grab along with the ones I am showing.

My Spring Fling-copper lingerie set with gorgeous detailing is from Blacklace and it includes not only system layers but also Slink, GOS and Omega appliers. Very generous for this FREE hunt item. This was very easy to find, a clue is given but I had found it before I even read the clue.

I am also showing you the hunt prize from Poet’s Heart, it is 1L but money well spent for what you get. This lovely Aradia headpiece comes with a color hud that changes both the pearls and spikes separately giving you a whole bunch of color combinations. This headdress could look just lovely with something formal to fantasy as well.

Now lets get in close on my nails which are also hunt prizes both from ZOZ but from 2 different Hunts. ZOZ has 2 shops so we are going to need to move around a bit to snag these hunt prizes but its well worth the tping. Both of these prizes are for Slink nails and will change both fingers and toes in one click with the bonus of not just 1 shade but several. The 1st prize is from ZOZ Jewels Isle Sim Hunt. The Fall pumpkin (Slink) Polish nail hud is just in time for Oct & Halloween. It is a french manicure with gold tips and tiny pumpkins. The cost is 5L. Our next ZOZ polish, Silver Leaf is from the Autumn Effect Hunt which runs til Oct 15th and you are looking for a round puck that says Depraved Nation Presents on it. You are getting a whole set of 9 different colors plus the ring I am wearing for FREE. It took me only a few seconds to edit this ring to my Slink finger. Both of these hunts give clues and I both prizes were pretty easy to find.

My pretty floral dress is also from the Jewels Isle Sim Hunt and it is FREE. It is the prize from Ever An’ Angel, Salem – Eventide. This is a mesh dress with a prim add on skirt piece. I did find I had to go up a size in this dress for a better fit. Alright now onto the 3 hunt prizes which I could hardly wait to tell you about, mainly because I was shocked to have found both of them. Both my necklace and headpiece are from The Twisted Hunt which runs til Oct 19. This hunt will tell you its not easy and its not, it is a huge grid wide hunt with lots of stores involved and it gives no clues and on top of it there are fakes set out to make it more of a challenge. You are looking for a black & white spinning box. This is why I count myself so lucky to have found not only the Zuri Dawn Necklace prize but also the extra prize The xtra F-headpiece prize. As if I wasn’t lucky enough in finding both of these they are both FREE! They look fab together but look just as fab worn as separates.

Ok off you go, happy hunting to all! I’ll be back next week with more goodies to share.

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!
