My New Nerd Haven

Of all the posts I’ve done here at FabFree, this one is probably the most like me in RL. The truth is, I’m something of a nerd. So when I heard about the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, you can bet that I rushed over and spent more than a few L’s – and this isn’t even everything! :-D

Blogging soon!

These great skinny jeans are a new gift from *COCO* Designs, and my sweater is a gift from Prim & Pixel (full credits for what I’m wearing are at the bottom of this post). The poster behind me is a Geeks ‘n’ Nerds gacha prize from Sari-Sari. Since nerds love to read, I’ve surrounded myself with tons of books. And I love my little “Potion Master” doll, which I got from the *~HopScotch*~* gacha at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Oh, the tray of goodies was the day 1 advent gift from Sway’s; you can no longer get it for free, but it is available for sale for 75L. If you aren’t doing this fun advent at Sway’s, you really should be! Uh oh, I think my dogs are about to devour my snack… bad dogs!

Chair – {what next} Cubby Armchair (200L for set of 2)

Poster - Sari-Sari OMG!!! Posters! Nerds (50L Gacha @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Giraffe – StoraxTree Native Giraffe Whimsy Brown Statue

Lamp – {what next} Charlotte Lamp

Doll - *~*HopScotch~* 15 Jammy Dodgers and a Fez Potion Master RARE (75L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Treats – Sway’s Tray with Cocoa and Cookies (past advent, now 75L)

Blogging soon!

This pretty skin is from a new-to-me store called {AIMI}. It is the current group gift (free to join), and will run you 1 whole Linden. It only comes in the tone and eyebrows as shown, but hey, 1L! My nails are a Slink HUD from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds for 50L. Eight nerdy patterns are included. ;-)

Blogging soon!

I finally decorated my office space, and I’ll admit that it’s now my favorite space in the house. My desk (including clutter!) and the Eiffel Tower Marquee are both for sale at Collabor88, but since the current round is almost over, you’d better hurry!

Wall Hanging – Alouette Ctrl Alt Delete Key Rack (129L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Lamp – floorplan. Eiffel Tower Marquee (188L @ Collabor88)

Easel – StoraxTree Artistic Endeavors Easel A

Desk – Standby Inc. Huckleberry Desk (288L @ Collabor88)

Blogging soon!

Another view of my new office. :-) The shelf and stuffs, as well as the Industrial Chandelier, are available at Collabor88. The surge protector under the desk is from Second Spaces at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. There are two other versions that will make your virtual space look like a fire hazard with lots of wires sticking out (just like my RL office), but I thought they were a little excessive for the one lamp I have plugged in here. I’m sure I’ll find a place for them somewhere else, though! The Mayfair Trunk is a past VIP group gift from {what next}, and you can still find it in the VIP gift room.

NOTE: The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event closes on December 8th, and new round of Collabor88 will be starting the same day. Hurry on over if you want any of the great stuffs at either of these events! Please also note that slurls to both an event and the store’s main location are provided in the credits; however, if you want an event item, you need to go there to get it while the event is in progress.

Kawaii mountain

Kawaii mountain

Green house: Aleta Designs – Ashfield green house (0L$)
Shelves and pots: What next – Beach cottage shelves and decor (10L$)
Step ladder: 143 – Step ladder mini (KMH)
Frames: Frog’s garden – Frame garden four seasons (KMH)
Jars: Forest feast – Seed pots (KMH)
Lamp: Oberon’s trick - Pop desk lamp (KMH)
Books + Pose: Natural – Hunt book (KMH)
Dress: Ambrosia – Fuwa lace dress (KMH)

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you’re all feeling relaxed and ready for a new week! Don’t worry if you’re not, there’s nothing more relaxing than some garden reading on a sunny day! Some of the stuff you can grab at the Kawaii mini hunt is just perfect for a green house or garden!

But first, you’re going to need a green house to put all your new goodies in! Well there’s a free one on the marketplace by Aleta Designs. It’s very spacious and has a vintage worn-paint feel to it, it also has plenty of shelving for your beloved pot-plants. The best part is it’s totally free! Also on the marketplace are these great shelves with plant pots and wicker baskets from What next. Mix and match the plants and accessories with your own decor too for a little bit of cutesy clutter!

Now onto the stuff you can grab for free from the Kawaii mini hunt! The step ladder comes with multiple poses for up to three people from 143 and it looks great with the books and poses from Natural!  Brighten up the place with the pretty lamp from Oberon’s trick, it also comes with a floor-lamp version as well. The gorgeous 4 seasons frames are  from Frog’s Garden and have animated snow and butterflies in it! FG also has a few group gifts up for grab so be sure to join the group for free and grab some essential garden decor. The pretty little jars on the floor by the ladder are Forest feast‘s contribution to the hunt.

Kawaii mountain

Skin: Glam affair – Elvi
Hair: Tram – C601
Eyes: Candy mountain – Orb eyes (Group gift)

And last but not least, my gorgeous dress is from Ambrosia! It’s mesh but has a pretty flexi attachment on the skirt as well as matching blue rose earrings and a necklace!

You thought I was done, didn’t you? Well nope! These stunningly-detailed eyes are a group gift from Candy mountain and they are just to die for. The group costs 75L$ to join but Mynx updates the gifts regularly. And in my opinion, these eyes are worth way more than that. They’re great for fantasy or animal avatars but if you’re not a fan of these colours, you can buy a pack of 6 colours inworld for just 125L$ a pop (Mynx is currently making 33 pairs of these eyes so you’ll have lots of choice!).

Well I’m sure that will keep you going for a little while longer but I’ll be uploading some more Kawaii Hunt things tomorrow!

Don’t I spoil you guys? ;D

Going to the Dogs

So last week I celebrated my RL birthday. It was a “milestone,” but we won’t discuss which one. ;-) Anyway, I decided to buy myself a present: this cute Yorkshire Terrier puppy. I’ve named her Fiona, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her here. Looks like she and Nessie are getting to know each other!

Blogging soon!

Moving right along… I’m relaxing this evening in a comfy combo made up of gifts from several different designers. My mesh skinny jeans are the newest group gift from WERTINA (free to join). There are several other group gifts on the wall, so be sure to pick them all up. My cozy KISS sweater is a gift from Hysteria Creations, and my Juana shoes are a group gift from Baby Monkey. They come with a HUD so you can change the colors, and there is also a similar gift for the guys.

Blogging soon!

Like this skin? Me too! It’s a group gift from new-to-me skin store Story Leaf. There is also a gift skin for the men. My Ribbon Necklace is a free gift from KOSH on the Marketplace, and has been shown a few times here on FabFree, most recently by Audrey and Love. It comes with a texture-changing HUD so you can choose your metal. Finally, my hair is the latest subscribo gift from ChiChickie! If you didn’t receive yours, head over to the store and pick up the red gift box by the subscribo. You’ll also find last month’s gift in the box. :-D

Long day today, so this is just a “quickie” before I head off to dreamland. :-)

A Mirage at the Beach

I finally got myself over to The Wash Beach Party today, and wow is there a lot of great stuff! If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, then GO! You have until June 19th to pick up these great deals. :-)

mv_cap&topf

These comfy capris & crop tops are by :{MV}:, and are 10L each (capris and tops sold separately). Colors, left to right: Lavender, Tan, and Sky.

mv_cap&top3f

Colors above are Antique, Mint, and Rose. Note that the mesh sizing is a bit smaller than usual; I normally wear a size XS, but I had to wear a S in both the capris and top.

mv_9_001f

For 50L, you get both the brocade capris and tied top in Soot (above), AND the Brocade Satin Bikini you see below.

mv_13_001f

Perfect for a hot day of fun in the sun, yes? Oh, and I needed a towel, so I picked up this Shelly Beach Towel from [LPL], which Caresia showed you a few days ago. :-)

mock_toes

One more thing: I opened my group notices from MOCK Cosmetics and found this fabulous 28-color pedicure HUD for Slink Avatar Enhancement Mesh Feet… as a group gift! The MOCK group is 250L to join, but there a TON of gifts sitting in the group notices right now! :-D

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Teddy Bear Picnic

Ok, more like an afternoon garden party, but you know what I mean. :-)

Linden Labs is gearing up for Second Life’s 10th Birthday (SL10B), and the presents have started flowing! Today they released this… ummm…. interesting, limited edition, Commemorative Bear Avatar:

“Starting today, you can get a free, special-edition SL10B avatar on the Marketplace. This avatar is made with some of the new Materials features and will look even better once that Materials Viewer launches (you can also check it out with the Materials Beta Viewer). Visit the SL10B Marketplace and get your commemorative avatar today – they’ll only be available until the end of June!”

(If you don’t feel like celebrating, you can wear the bear sans party hat and t-shirt.)

So there you have it. You can read the full article here. And LL promises more gifts to come, so keep your eyes open!

Oh, if you’re wondering about my little bunny friend here, she is not free, but is a special Relay For Life item from the Virtual Kennel Club, released for the Home & Garden Expo. The H&GE ended yesterday, but if you’d still like to donate to RFL, you can find the bunny on the Marketplace as of this posting, but not for much longer. I know: Not free Serena, what are you thinking?! You’re right… I just have a personal interest in seeing cancer’s fanny get kicked as soon as possible.

Oh shoot, my claws just poked right through my newspaper! Grrrrr!

The Fisherman

The Fisherman

Ah… what a beautiful morning for some fishing on the lake. So far, I haven’t caught anything, but I’m not ready to go home yet. Good thing I brought my lunch. Anyway, my fishing gear today consists of these great cargo pants and skullie shirt by Ruca Tease for the Color Explosion Hunt. Care and Love have already shown you a few ladies items from this hunt, but there are also men’s prizes to be found. The hunt runs until May 31st, and all prizes are free. More info on the official blog.

My hat is a MENstuff gift from JfL, bracelet is a group gift from Ronsem, and my earring is a group gift from ::GABRIEL::. These unisex sneakers were just 10L at Duh! and come with both black and white versions in the box. However, if you’re a new resident under 30 days old, you can pick up a free pair at the front desk of the in-world store.

At the rate I’m going, we won’t be having fish for dinner tonight. :-(
