Somewhere in Springfield Wood

Strolling in Springfield Wood

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After a long week at work, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off with my pal.  As soon as I logged in to SL, I slipped into this comfy outfit, and we teleported over to Springfield Wood to decompress and take in the beautiful scenery.  Aren’t the wildflowers in this meadow gorgeous?

Just Right for Friday Casual

My Laura Outfit today is the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from MOoH!.  With its frayed capris and striped top, it was perfect for our stroll through the sim.  I really liked the way the soft shade of blue in the striped top coordinated with the worn denim pants, but if blue is not your color, the generous designer included a HUD with three other color choices – gray, pink and red.  The open top is fastened with two buttons in front and features half length sleeves and a stand up collar.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find just the right size for you.  You can mix and match these separates with items in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, this set is completely free.  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport over to the shop and click the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes separate alpha layer for top and capris)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

While I was typing up this post, Ripley spotted a squirrel frolicking nearby and trotted over to investigate.  Apparently, Mr. Squirrel was not in the mood for company and scrambled up a tree.  Now the pupster is parked at the base of the pine, barking and whining.  I think I’d better go intervene so the woodland creature can get back to gathering stores for the coming winter.  Until next time, happy shopping!

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

My Milkshake
Hello again Fab Free! So maybe my milkshake isn’t bringing boys to the yard, but it should bring you guys to Limit8! This strawberry milkshake, among quite a few other things, is a free Limit8 group gift in celebration of the current Birthday round of Limit8. Most if not all of the participating designers have set out a free gift. All you need to do to get yours is head over to Limit8, join the in-world group (It’s free to join) and click the little brown paper wrapped presents at each booth while wearing the Limit8 group tag. I spotted everything from poses and props, to clothing and jewelry. There are even some housewares.  I picked out a few of these awesome free gifts to share with you. Also, thanks to Love’s much needed and appreciated help, you’ll get to see one or two of the gifts in action. I hope you love them!

Eyes – So after I took the above photo, I realized you really can’t see these gorgeous eyes by NamiiChu. They are part of a set of mesh eyes available for free at Limit8. The set includes 4 pairs of individual eyes so you can mix and match them. These pupil-less eyes have an otherworldly look to them that I think is really beautiful. To get yours, join the free Limit8 group and click the gift box at the NamiChu booth at the Limit8 event.

So Close!

Face Moles – The second above photo shows these cute face moles by Arise a bit better as well. This variation is one of 6 included in the Catwa hud. I think they are not only super cute, but a great way to customize your favorite skin a bit further. You can get this Catwa applier hud by Arise for free at Limit8. Once again, don’t forget that Limit8 group tag!

Strawberry Milkshake – Alright, so I’m a sweet-a-holic, and strawberry is hands down my favorite milkshake flavor. So Pru taking home this free Limit8 group gift milkshake by PewPew! was simply meant to be.  This detailed strawberry milkshake by PewPew! comes equipped with a bento hold pose, which you’ll see in action in the video below.

Booty Dance – Finally, I could not resist showing you this free Limit8 group gift booty dance by Sync’D Motion. Thankfully, Love was willing to help me out by putting together this awesomely hilarious video. The dance is too fun, and well all things considered the song went perfectly! I do want to note that because Pru is holding the milkshake by PewPew! while dancing some of the hand animations that are part of the dance are not shown.

A tale of Ice Cream and Kittens

FF4 v3 final

Today we find a rather glum Zsa.  I told her that if she still wanted to buy stuff on top of all the freebies and cheapies all us FabFree girls hunt down, she had to get a job.  I found her one in the local ice cream parlour, The Sugar Bowl, but she is not impressed, and spent her days day dreaming about Elvis, and trying to avoid damaging her new manicure.

At least she dressed well for her first day at her new job, and her outfit includes 2 group gifts and a dress that cost very little.

The dress…..

….. is from Bowtique and available on the marketplace for just 50L includes a 25 option texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya (with autohide)
  • Fitmesh
  • 5 fitmesh standard avatar sizes (alphas included)

The Sparkly Stuff….

…..consists of group gifts from Cae. The group is free to join, and there are other gifts to pick up including the companion necklace for this bracelet and earrings.

And finally….

…….Kitty nails!  Zsa, like the person behind the monitor, is animal obsessed (you should see her Jian folder), with a particular love of cats, bats, elephants and goats – but cats always come first.  One of many free group gifts available from Alme is a kitten manicure! The group costs 50L to join but there are frequent gifts and a wall of previous gifts to pick up.  The Alme system uses an easy hud allowing you to apply to all these systems with a click.  To pick your gifts up just put your Alme tag on, and pay the vendor 1L, which will immediately be refunded).

    • Alme
    • Belleza
    • Slink
    • Maitreya
    • Omega
    • Vista
    • Tuty’s

As you can’t see the nails very well, here is a vendor pic:

Alme Love Kittens Nails, lilac

Must dash, I need to search for another job for Zsa, I don’t think this one will last very long.  She switched the fridge off by mistake and all the ice cream melted.  Whoops.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth Thelma
Nails – Alme Love Kittens (group gift / pay 1L, immediately refunded / 50L to join) 
Dress – Bowtique Valerie
Bracelet & Earrings – Cae Northstar stud earrings and bracelet (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Backdrop – Exposeur The Sugar Bowl
Pose – Ex-Posed Cassie

Angels & Airwaves

Angels & Airwaves
Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

(AMD) Tuli Gifts

P.S. Like the wings? They are simple yet beautiful mesh individual wings by Corvus that you can pick up on the Marketplace for just 45 linden. They also come in white!

A Massive Treat

A Massive Treat

There is nothing quite like a little trip to the ice cream shop to brighten one’s spirits!  I got a fairly humongous cone, complete with hot fudge because life’s too short to not eat hot fudge.  Also, I had to take a pic of it because if it’s not on instagram, did it really happen?  Ah, musings on a Wednesday are the best kind of musings!

Happy/Sad

I’m really into my skirt today – hearts with happy and sad faces on them?  Yes!  And cheery yellow hue is just what the doctor ordered.  There’s something vaguely 60’s about it too, don’t you think?  The Yoon skirt is a Maitreya Lara exclusive, and I picked it up for Free over at Ersch – word on the street is that their group join will be free for a limited time right now, so hop on over and grab it!

Little Doll

There’s a new group gift over at CandyDoll – the collar you see above! I comes with a fairly comprehensive HUD to change the colour of the strap, so you can make it go with any outfit you can think of.  The CandyDoll group is currently 450 Lindens to join, but there are a bunch of other gifts you can pick up while you’re there.

Right, I’m not going to eat this enormous ice cream.  Good thing calories don’t count in SL!

Fortune’s Fool

Fortune's Fool

“I am fortune’s fool!” – Romeo, Romeo & Juliette – Shakespeare

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s my favorite time of year. The weather starts to get cooler, the leaves turn, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can tell from these playful if mildly occult themed gifts from the Garden of Shadows event that many of the designers in Second Life are getting into that magical mystical spirit of the season as well. At the current round of Garden of Shadows many of the participating designers put out at least one, sometimes several, 10 linden gifts. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag to purchase these event cheapies. While shopping the event I saw 10 linden gifts for the ladies, gifts for the gentlemen, unisex items, and even some home goods. I picked out three of the gifts to share with you, I hope you like them!

The Top – It’s no mistake that these Garden of Shadows event gifts I chose to share have a slight fortune telling theme to them. I’ve always had a fascination with the other worldly and mystical. This top is from a shop called Shinu Made. This mini crop top has a fun, macabre Ouija board print complete with dancing skeletons. It comes in three mesh sizes, and is just 10 linden.
Sizes Included – Slink, Maitreya, Belleza (There is a single mesh size for each body.)

The Necklace – The flat black kitty cat necklace Pru is wearing is another 10 linden gift at the Garden of Shadows shopping event. This one is from a shop called ProFect. It does not have any scripts, which makes it a low lag accessory, and it can be manually resized.

The Crystals – I think these Divination Crystals from Melt are a really fun, beautiful accessory/prop. They spin and rotate as if propelled by magic. This Garden of Shadows gift is also just 10 linden. Along with the spinning animation, they have their own hold pose to complete the effect. Also included is a color change hud for the crystals that gives you 8 color options.

Here are the details, enjoy!

This is My Song

This is My Song

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share another of the prizes that Ripley and I discovered at the Country Music Life Hunt which is currently running over at Brii Underground.  All in all, there are 10 complete outfits awaiting discovery in the store for just 6 Linden dollars each.  Since the event runs until September 30th, there’s still plenty of time for you do do some hunting of your own.

Call Me a Pollyanna, Do

My entire outfit from the tip of my cowboy hat down to my buckled high heel boots comes all neatly packaged inside prize box #08 in the hunt.  Featuring a three quarter length knotted shirt layered over a black bra and worn denim shorts, the Pollyanna outfit will have you all set to enjoy a late summer September day in the country.  The yoke and cuffs on the top are decorated with a wild west revolver print for that added cowgirl touch.  Faded denim shorts ride low on your waist and show off a bit of skin.  The boots come with slouchy socks to keep your tootsies plenty warm.  Both the socks and the bra are added with an Omega friendly applier.  Also included, but not worn in my photo is a make up layer and black bandana.  You get everything you need for this adorable ensemble all for the low price of just six Linden dollars and the time it takes you to seek out the hunt object.  Now that’s quite a deal!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Sweet As Sugar

Sweet as Sugar

Oh my FabFree Darlings! How I’ve missed y’all!

Real life can be a real pain in the a…. um, neck sometimes. But y’all know that by now. Anyways, Love and Pru, being the dolls they are, have very graciously asked me back and I was delighted to jump onboard. SO, like a bad penny, I’m back! And what better way to ‘tip toe’ back in than with some free socks?

 

Gimme some sugar

The Fall Socks from Star Sugar are this month’s free group gift. The group does have a small 50L fee to join but there a lots of past group gifts available so it’s Lindens well spent.  The socks are fit to Maitreya and come with a HUD with eight colors and patterns, each one as cute as the foxy one I chose. Both left and right sock can be applied separately so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!
