I could go on and on and on… and I will!

This is my 1000th post on fabfree.  My very first post was June 10th 2008.  I was very much a noob and just over two months old.  I constantly messaged the other bloggers and I’m sure I drove them crazy with questions.  My pictures were exceptionally small and pixelated, but I loved the thrill of telling people about such wonderful creations found though out the grid.  You can see my very first post at the link below, go ahead giggle and laugh!  I dare ya!

https://fabfree.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/camped-out-and-lucky-at-eclectric-eclipse/

In September 2008, there were around a thousand members and 64 designers.  It shocked me when Cherlindrea asked me if I would take over the blog and group.  Of course, I said yes, but I didn’t think I was qualified to carry out her plans and dreams for the group.  Now, there are nearly 15,000 group members in the Fabulously Free in SL group and each day the blog gets between 6-7 thousand viewers!

I am honored to have such wonderful people surrounding me!  From the fabulous writers, group moderators, designers, group members, and readers, you have all made my experience truly amazing!

I consider the writers of this blog my personal family and friends.  The contribution the writers make to FabFree is extremely appreciated!  I admire and care deeply for each of them.  As soon as I see any of the writers in-world, I am there messaging them.  Hopefully, my “Did you see this?” and “Are you going to blog that?” translates into “How are you doing?” and “I hope your day goes well!”  Farah has almost been with the blog as long as I have, we have shared soooo many laughs and even a skybox!  Farah has such style that she can put together one single outfit and her post will be the highest viewed all week long!  Whisper is an inspiration to all!  I just want to hug her.  Whisper’s posts always make me smile and I am so glad that she stays true to who she is!  At times it seems I knew Carson in another life, perhaps I did.  He is an encouragement to me in RL and SL!  Plus, he loves my shopping lists!  I am very protective of all of the writers, they are my family.

The moderators are all long term creators within Second Life.  Each of them has contributed greatly to the SL experience!  I trust and value their opinions and I am very grateful that they help moderate the Fabulously Free in SL and Fabulously Lucky Chair groups!  Some of my best friends are moderators in the groups.  They have been there for me through SL and RL issues.  For months I perched above CCTV’s shoe store while taking pictures in a make do photo studio.  Floatie gave FabFree a home and helps me stay grounded.  Teagan has been my second opinion whenever needed.  There are over 20 moderators and each one of them has made a significant impact on my slife.  The moderators are among my best friends in SL and have always been around to listen.  There have been a lot of learning, laughing, venting, bitching, moments of inspiration, with all of the moderators.  I respect each of them and appreciate the contribution they make in my life, the group, and within SL.

I believe creators are the essence of Second Life.  Without them and their wonderful ideas there would be no Second Life.  I wish I could tell you the endless amount of stores I’ve blogged from the beginning until now, but we would be here all day!

I smile when I see familiar names in group chat.  There isn’t a better bunch of people in SL.  The group members often go out of their way to help each other.  It amazes me that in a group as large as Fabulously Free in SL the members are so wonderful!

My favorite thing about Second Life is still Fabulously Free in SL.  I still get a huge thrill when I post something and it’s even better when a reader comments!  From the designers, to the fabulous writing staff, to the moderators, to the group members, and to our loyal readers, Thank you all!

Adam n Eve were full of EMO-tions!

Five mini gift bags are hidden around the Adam n Eve sim with great prizes in each one!  This mini hunt started today and ends noon SLT on Sunday.  Bag number 4 includes the black leather Trench coat (which comes in two lengths).  The cream colored Shawt outfit has two skirt options and tiny hot pants.  This outfit is in gift bag number 5.

Gift Bags 1, 2, and 3 contain Midummer’s Eve eyes, Starry Sky eyes, and prim lashes!  The Stem Umeko skin is a group gift for !Imabee members.  The skin comes with and without freckles and also with dark and light eyebrows.

The stonewashed jeans are coming to Aqua next week.  I’m not sure what the price of the jeans will be, but there will be a gray version for only L$10!  The Celine II hair is a new release from EMO-tions.  The hair isn’t free, but I love it and I may have to splurge and buy the hair in the brown color!  Also there is a new group gift available for EMO-tions group members which I will show you soon!

What’s Your Second Style?

The white sale ended yesterday but there are still quite a few googies to pick up!  I grabbed the Faking Innocence dress from Sn@tch.  The dress is quite lovely and does make me look innocent, right?  The Feathers skin is available at Heartsick for only L$50.  The skin is available in many skin tones, I am wearing the Reverie tone.  The Mei Ying hair has a very innocent look so I had to wear it.  The hair is not free, but available at Hair Solutions.

I also found the black Mourning Flower dress at Soleil for only L$1!  The Cassie hair is another not free, but fabulous hair from Hair Solutions.  The Prisma Blood earrings, necklace, and ring set are the grand opening gift at Morrisey Jewels.

I picked up the purple sequin bikini at Aqua.  There are also male swim trunks in the box next to the bikini.  Also, I know Whisper has blogged this before, but the True Romance dress is a gift at Aqua.  The dress includes the long length and a mini skirt option.

I won the yellow Pammy babydoll dress in the lucky chair at Cupcakes.  There are tons of other prizes to win, so try your luck!  I blogged the white Prelude XtremeHeels yesterday.  The heels are a group gift at N-core and will be available throughout the summer.

Hudson Clothing has a new VIP group gift available.  The Watermelon Beach bikini comes with the matching skirt wrap.  The multicolor ankle boots are a past group gift from N-core.  The boots have been blogged several times before, but they are great and still available!

The Too Black lace dress is a dollarbie at Elemiah Design.  The dress is available for 48 hours, so dom’t miss out!

The green leaf print top and brown skirt were sent to the Kunglers Fashion Design group members for July.   There is a L$50 one time enrollment fee to join the Kunglers Fashion Design group.  The red beaded necklace was sent to the *evie* sub-o members this morning and comes with the triple and single strand necklace.

The newest gift for ezura group members is the slim fitting white dress.

If you feel like splurging pick up the Pandora gown at ezura.  This gown is a new release and has many options available, including matching lingerie!

Also the Limited Edition FF Gothic Gown is available to the higher bidder at ezura.  Only 25 of these gowns are available and I have one of them, perhaps you can get one too!  The proceeds from the sale of this gown will be donated to Relay for Life

There’s also an unfurnished Studio Skybox at Designer Prims.  The skybox has a skylight window and includes a few accessories in the gift.  Plus, it’s only 22 prims!!!  I think I have a ghost in the center area…

Turn loose the heaven within

I love bargain days.. well who doesnt! This weekend there are some awesome items to be snapped up for under 100L, here are some things I bought to show you. Please be aware most of these are time limited so if you miss out I am really sorry.

Inside each skin set you get 3 cleavage options and freckles options. Rapture was previewed before at the SSI Whites week which ended yesterday, Obsidian is a new never before seen shade that will be part of the new release of skins coming soon!

Unless you’ve been living under a stone you will have read that the Crazy Arse Hair Hunt 2 has started.. this hunt is not your average hair hunt. All of the hair designed for this hunt is out of the ordinary. Bright colours, accessories and crazy designs are the name of the game and there are 52 stores in the hunt. It starts at The U-Neek and runs until 1st August.

I have a handful of hairs to show you now that I picked up but Im sure more will appear during the following days.

BC322 Skull & Bones – this hair comes with a version without the accessories

Curious Kitties – this hair comes in two parts so you can wear it without the cross ties at the bottom

Rotten Toe – comes in a variety of colours

Burning Chrome – fear not you can wear this without the spiders! Thank god! There are 6 colours and a free spider to wear in your mouth.. yuck!

GaNKeD

Allusions – This SLURL isnt a direct one as the area doesnt allow it, but it will show you a red dot on your Mini map to follow. It isnt far away from where you land so be patient while it rezzes.

Nevermind
