At The Beach, Checking Out The Waves!

Whc spring break 1

Hello everyone, welcome to my last post as a staff member of Fab Free. I would regale you with the story of how, when I was a new resident over seven years ago, I relied on Fab Free to find great items to pick up, how I would eventually come to idolize Love to an embarrassing extent, how I revered Carson when he was a male blogger here, and how much I wanted to emulate them both. This blog has been more than a hobby; it was hugely important to me in both my first and second lives. Sadly, though, times do change. While my feelings towards Fab Free have not, I do need to step away from my dream job here in order to focus on other matters at hand.

Before I go, I have to tell you about a few fantastic items. The great Roughnecks T-Shirt shown above is available as a free group gift. It has been a long winter for me and the thought of donning a well-worn, soft cotton tee and shorts is irresistible. This free Group Gift Tee looks very much like a real world garment and is adorned with a cool biker image on both the front and the back. Inside the box is a wide range of versions including tucked, untucked, Mesh, Fitmesh and three different waist widths to help fit with a wide range of Mesh pants. Not only is this going to fit well but this Tee is going to look great with almost any pants you choose to wear with it. I was very impressed with everything included in this box.

The shorts I am wearing come from the unbelievably bountiful Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event! Previously, the main item on it was featured by Astrid here, but there is so much more there that deserves a look! These Cargo Shorts in White Canvas look fantastic and inspired me to go seek out some sun. (A good thing too because in real life my legs were about that color). I love the way they look but I should caution you that finding the perfect shirt to wear with them is slightly more complicated since they seem to require a little extra width at the waist at the back. Luckily they look awesome if you go bare-chested too and the little extra work putting together an outfit with them is well worth the effort!

Also at the Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event are these sharp looking polo shirts. My favorite was the Polo Shirt – Nautical package which contains that fun looking print shirt you see me chilling on the beach in. In addition to that design it comes with a hud that gives you two more textures to choose from, a bargain at only 10L! Inset in the picture are two examples of the Polo Shirt – Madras Colors package also available for only 10L. Along with a third color (light blue) included in the texture change hud, these polos are excellent Easter and spring-wear. All put together this was one of the best cart sale carts I have ever seen!

Oddity has a great item they are giving away as a free group gift that is perfect for us spring breakers. The -TopGun- Dark Glasses are sharp looking aviator style sunglasses. A classic eternally popular design, these sunglasses are a good pickup as you prepare to look cool for the coming spring and summer months. Well done Oddity, thank you!

It has been beyond fun serving all of you. In the end, that is what we do here at Fab Free, and that what all of us at here have in common. It doesn’t matter where we are, where we have been, or when we were here at this wonderful institution. What we do, we do out of love for all of you. I have re-launched my own blog and will continue posting there when time permits. I leave you with one final thought: Second Life is an amazing adventure if you open yourself to it and allow yourself to be carried away. The trick is finding what you love and focusing on that. My time here has been my greatest adventure so far, and I want to thank all of you for that. Take care and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Spring Happens

Snapshot_008Hi there Fabulous readers! I am all ready for Easter, thanks to Sn@tch and their new Fish For This 7 Seas Fishing Prize….  (and actually our very own Astrid too, because she sent me her fishing extras as they are transfer and sharable!).

The new prize is called Spring Happens and includes 21 pastel/Easter eggy coloured pieces that you can fish for.  I am more of a less is more kind of girl, keeping my fashion style simple so I am just wearing the Spring Happens Mini and Tank but as you can see from Sn@tch’s vendor ad below – it’s all so very cute!

Go! to !gO! for 200L In-Store Credit Today!

!gO! !gO! !gO!

Apparently Loki has this hair-brained idea that camp-outs are a good idea! Personally I think he’s crazy! But at least he agreed to stop by !gO! with me this morning to get the 200L in store credit that is available TODAY ONLY as a moving gift to Group members. You’ll need to wear your group tag and click the terminal at the entrance when you arrive.

Yes, you heard right! !gO! has moved locations, but this is good news to dedicated !gO! customers. The new !gO! location promises less lag and better quality and as a giftie to group members, we are being given 200L in-store credit FREE (the group tag is 50L if you are not already a member) for purchases today. !gO! is high quality clothes, and not just for women… they have modern and fantasy for men and women both. I picked up a cute set of pj’s. Loki picked up a pair of jeans with an attached kilt. Yes, I totally teased him about it being a skirt… that might be how we ended up camping out against my will!  >.<
