I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

I Wear my Sunglasses at Night

I know I always go on rants about the things I would wear, should wear or could or could not wear in both SL and RL, but today I’m going to get 100% real with you about my sunglasses collection.  I have a problem folks. I am the first to admit that I have more sunglasses than any sane human could possibly need, but that doesn’t stop me from pining for the next mirrored pair of heart-shaped glasses that cross my path.  I may also own a pair of Lady Gaga inspired flip up sunglasses à la Paparazzi video.  But I admit nothing!

Dress to Impress

Before I get to the glasses, I’ll start with the cute dress from Adorsy that I found!  It’s one of their group gifts right now, and really, isn’t it nice?  The dress (sized for Maitreya bodies) comes with the sleeves (which are detachable, of course) and an extensive colour change HUD for all your rainbow needs.  I got mine by joining the Adorsy group for free, and clicking on the vendor.  That makes this dress completely FREE!  YAY!

The Special Specs

Ok so I hardcore love these glasses.  I would sooooo wear them all the time and enjoy the madness that ensued.  They kind of look like they have Froot Loops cereal attached to them, and you really can’t say no to that.  I got them at Elise by joining their group for 20L.  You’ll also find a few other cute gifts while you’re there, so totally worth it!

Hope your day contains just a little bit of kook to keep it awesome!

Far beyond the Elysian Fields

Far beyond the Elysian Fields

Oh Twisted Hunt… How I hate to love you. You make me crazy… and yet I keep going.  How’s that for twisted behavior? The theme for this round of the Twisted Hunt is “Divine”. So everything is all about the old gods and the elysian fields.  So I flittered up to those fields beyond to romp with golden horses and try out my own wings.

Golden Divine

My Chiton – My first find is this lovely ‘Asphodel Chiton Tunic’ from The Dreaming Thicket. The prize cube includes both the female and male version of the gift. Both the prizes are beautiful and so very well made.

My Wings – I found these lovely wings in a side quest at Sweet Revolutions. The details are awesome and the wings are completely resizable and repositionable. Originally they were very small and set on the head, like Hermes. But it was so easy to make them larger and place them on my shoulders.

My Friend– The gorgeous guy at my side is the “Divine” horse from Awesome Breed Creations. Once you locate the cube, both this golden stallion and a golden mare are yours to roam with. Both horses are fully breedable and must be fed with food supplies from ABC. Be sure to read the enclosed ‘quick start’ Notecard if you are unfamiliar with Breedables or ABC Horses.

Sizes Included for the Tunic

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh – XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Walk Into the Room Purse First

Walk Into the Room Purse First

I don’t think there has ever been a song that I identify more with than Purse First by Bob the Drag Queen (well, I mean…there are probably loads that I identify more with, but for the purposes of this post, let’s just suspend our disbelief for a moment!).  The song has it all – sass, a beat and the deep knowledge that you should never pay too much for an outfit.  Don’t you think you could get behind that statement?

Don’t be so Evasive

There are two new group gifts at Queenz!  Yessss.  I love me some Queenz.  I decided to show you the “Evasive” dress, which shows a heck of a cross-section of your cleavage (ain’t nothing wrong with that, amirite?) and is really an eye-catching look.  It comes with an HUD with plenty of colour options, so you’ll never get bored.  You can get yours by joining the Queenz group for FREE, and you can totally grab all the other awesome gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

Now About that Purse

So I totally take the advice of walking into the room purse first seriously.  I 100% did it for real at a wedding in RL and almost beaned a very bewildered fellow in the face, but it was a glorious moment nevertheless.  You can walk into the room purse first SL style with this cute group gift by Mug!  It comes in 4 different colours, and you can even change the colour of the pompom too.  The bento pose is just adorable, and I love every minute of it.  You can get your own by joining the Mug group for 150L, and don’t miss the other two group gifts while you’re there! (I showed you those puppies right HERE).

Have fun my darlings!

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Tattoo – The Ivory Rose – I&R moth & moon tattoo
Dress – Oubliette– Mystic Flora Dress – Currently @Ostara’s Altar

Spring Fling

Spring Fling

Spring is definitely in the air  now, FabFree. Even here in the RL things are blooming and the soft breezes are blowing. I’m stocking up on tissues for allergy season….  But that part aside, I’m all for the lighter days ahead full of flowers and sun dresses.

Spring Fling

Hilly Haalan must be ready for Spring too since she has set out this lovely little sun dress covered in flowers for the free March Group Gift. This is the ‘Alanis Romance’ dress from HH along with the cute pink purse and shoes. I love getting a set all together, it’s just so smart. And if that wasn’t enough, there are two patterns of the dress included in the gift. Hilly Haalan has another group gift out that Kathryn showed us right here. So put on that group tag and get over there!

Where Flowers Bloom

Gathering Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the peaceful quiet of the Elvion sim today after traveling down the path of the Spring Fling Hunt.  My pretty floral frock happens to be one of the prizes that you can uncover in this hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Gathering Posies

The sweet springtime print scattered across a cream colored background on this hunt prize inspired my pose today.  It made me think of an enjoyable morning spent wandering through nature gathering wildflowers.  Featuring a sleeveless design and a hemline that falls to the upper thigh, this dress will help you usher in sunny, warm spring days.  Its full skirt is loosely gathered and offers casual comfort for day to day activities.  To add this little beauty to your inventory, simply teleport over to The Sissy Bar, locate the rose blossom hidden somewhere inside, and pay just one little Linden dollar.  If you get stumped, there is a handy hint giver in the shop.  Honestly, the pupster and I found the hunt object without any trouble at all, so this should be quick and easy for you, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Bangles
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

If you really wanna know where you can find me, I’ll be unwinding down in the islands

FabFree: If you really wanna know where you can find me, I’ll be unwinding down in the islands (1 of 2 - Photo)
Hey there Fabulouses!  I have news today of a new free bento dance animation at Move! Animations.  I was inspired by this dance to spend some time in the sand at Kanaloa Surf Beach, admiring the waves.  I hope you enjoy the video as much as I had fun making it :).  It’s a quick video at just over a minute, so it won’t take up too much of your day!

Dance along with me!

At Move! Animations, you’ll find the Julia 27 Bento Dance for FREE.  You’ll find a few dance pads with a sign above it and all you need to do is touch the sign!  No need to be in the group (unless you want to, of course!!).  The Julia 27 Bento Dance is almost 40 seconds long and is fun, sexy and chill.

Skip to Summer

Skip to Summer

It may just be my imagination, but we seem to be sneaking a few more beach shots than is normal for March here on the Fab Free blog.  I can honestly tell you that I am in some serious need of vitamin D.  And also warmer weather, and a possibly to not ever wear snow boots again.  I feel like these things may improve my life by quite a bit.  In the meantime, I’m finding some sunlight in SL, and keeping my fingers and toes crossed for some RL sun!

I See the Moon

So Moon has quickly become one of my favourite hair places on the grid.  They’ve got loads of gorgeous styles to choose from, and when I stopped by the other day, I noted that they have a masssiiiiiiive wall of gifts right behind the main counter.  I joined their group for 99 Lindens and got about 15 different styles that I am completely obsessed with.  My favourite one is this long undone braid that comes with little daisies you can add for whimsical purposes.  Fantastic or what!  Get over to Moon, what are you waiting for!

Go Fetch!

Fetch have a few group gifts out right now that you can pick up with a group join fee of 50 Lindens.  I grabbed these really cute sun glasses (they come with an HUD to change the colour of the frames) as well as their most recent gift – the insanely adorable pineapple clutch I’ve got in my hand.  Is it not the best?  I feel like summer is creeping up on us just because I’m holding it!  Head on over to Fetch and grab these beauts!

Until next time, darlings!
