Saturday Night = Date Night!

Hello Hello, FabFree! Welcome to the weekend! In real life, Saturday means date night! Of course, our idea of a bog date night is movies and tacos… but hey whatever makes ya happy, right?

Monday is my SUN day

Monday is my SUN day

Hey FabFree. This afternoon I am enjoying a typical north country Spring. I.E. It’s cold and rainy. Really coooold and rainy. Which of course, makes me think of the beach with it’s warm sands and gentle waves and soft breezes. That’s logical… right?! Oh well, it’s Juli logic! Plus, while I was at the Miix Event I found a super cute little free swim suit so maybe I had the beach on my mind already.

As Aline told you here, the Miix Event is full of free gifts right now. Like this awesome two piece suit from Impact. This is the “Mellisa Bikini” and it’s one of those free gifts. You get a HUD with ten colors for the shorts and fourteen colors for the top. There are so many cute patterns and colors and it all so marvelously mix and match… I had a hard time figuring out what to wear! Such a good problem to have, am I right?!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

While I was wandering round picking up freebies and group gifts and all, I stopped in at Mina Hair and got a good surprise. This gorgeous hair style was up as a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. You can join the SLF&O group for free and pick this and tons of other gifts across the Grid. This style, “Alexa” comes with the “Essentials” color HUD giving you a nice range of natural colors from white to blonde to brunet to deep black.  I do love getting such great quality hair for my hair obsession. I don’t know how long this style will be offered for the SLF&O group or even how long it’s been up… but if you want to add it to your hair obsession hurry over and pick it up.

Something about Spring

Something about Spring

Hey there, FabFree. Are you into the Spring season yet? I know some of our readers are actually going into Autumn so all of our Spring weather ramblings must sound sorta out of place. But… ya gotta grow where you’re planted and right now that means Spring in all it’s glory.

The Grid is celebrating Spring with a ton of Spring themed Hunts. Today’s hunt included a very nice men’s shirt and jeans so I grabbed my Gabriel and off we went. The Hop Along Hunt was a fun quick Hunt over at MystRie and it netted us both these snazzy Spring outfits.

My maxi dress, “Softly Spring’ is a lovely wash of watercolors with pale pinks and a floral pattern. It looks like something I’d have in my real life closet! Beautifully made, it’s the perfect addition to my SL closet. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Gabriel’s knit sweater over a dark gray collared shirt is just different enough to be eye catching. And I love the pale lavender color. Who says guys can’t wear pastel? The prize includes a pair of jeans as well (Not Shown)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geanni
  • SLink Male

Cupcake

Cupcake

Hey FabFree! I know I look a little … casual today. It’s just one of those days when you don’t want to get out of bed and you only want to wear pajamas. Now, you know I love frilly, feminine and sexy just as much as the next girl. But some days you just want comfort. And if that comfort is cute too? Then it’s an all around win. Add a cupcake… my day is made!

My super cute new pj pants here are from Epicine and you can pick them for just 2 little lindens as part of the Femboy Hunt. I do love the Femboy Hunt, not just for the inclusion but the awesome gifts the designers always put in for us. So don’t miss this one. I’ll get back to work on it myself pretty soon…. right after this cupcake.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya Isis, Venuc
  • Classic Mesh Sizes – XXS – L

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun

Hello hello, FabReaders! I’m still enjoying the Spring and everything it brings. Of course, it’s easier to say that here on the Grid where all these beautiful flowers and trees don’t make pollen! In real life, we may have the windows open but we’re also starting to sniffle a lot.

Spring also brings the need for some fresh new clothes for our fresh new season. Happily, I found what must be the perfect little dress for Spring at one of my absolute favorite designers: Poeme. This is the “Check Me Out” mini from Poeme and you can add this beauty to your closet for free. “Check Me Out” is the current gift for our fantastic FabFree Group members. So you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag. Oh, and of course, the FabFree Group is free to join.  While you’re at Poeme, ‘check’ out all the other group gifts and lucky boards and cool stuff too!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh Sizes – XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP

Celebrating April!

3.28.21 wp_031

Hey Gang!

Its a new month and you know what that means!  It’s time to see what we celebrate in April (aside from Easter, of course) Let’s have a look-see….

Today, of course is April Fools’ Day, so watch out for those pranksters!  I used to be one of those pranksters but everyone knows me too well and they know I will be up to no good! So, no fun for me cause everyone is all waiting for me to pull a prank.  Alas.  Now, of course it’s not *only* April Fools Day (and they put April at the beginning of it, like every month has it’s own fools day and we need to distinguish.  the heck??), but also National Burrito Day and National One Cent Day.   I think Taco Bell should jump on this one and sell one cent burritos all day today.

Now for the rest of the month….

2. Good Friday, nice normal Holiday, also World Autism Day.

3. National Find a Rainbow Day (that’s a nice one!) and World Party Day.  Especially for those who went in search of said rainbow and actually found one!  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be able to stand in the rainbow colors so I would get on my bike and chase after the rainbow, trying to find the part where it met the earth (I didn’t care about the pot of gold.  Silly little me!), I wanted to bask in those colors up close!  I don’t need to tell you this story does not end in World Party Day for yours truly!

4. Happy Hoppy Easter!  And apparently, for the Easter Bunnies to celebrate, it is also National Carrot Day (who did that???).  I kid you not.  That’s not all.  It is also National Hug a News Person Day and National Tell a Lie Day.  Do we really need that last one?  And no, it is not an excuse to get together with family (wear a mask and stay safe folks!) and tell them all sorts of lies about your life.   Not a good holiday custom for anyone.

5. Now being the Trekkie I am, I know this is First Contact Day.  I was disappointed that it was not listed.  I guess that’s the Universe paying me back for how long it took me to understand why May 4th was Star Wars day.   Today is also, strangely enough…. National Flash Drive Day.  Why little bitty flash drives would get their own day is beyond me.  Maybe it doesn’t mean them at all, maybe it means we need to drive around in our cars and flash people!  Woohoo!  Happy National Flash Drive day!  *giggle*

6. Happy New Beer’s Eve!  Who knew that was a thing!  *Why* is it a thing?  Go on and read the 7th.

7. Happy National Beer Day (this is why).  Today is also No Housework Day (well if you are drinking beer all day to celebrate, I suppose that is understandable.).  It is also World Health Day, which I don’t think ties in with the beer thing very well.  You certainly can’t celebrate both.

9. National Name Yourself Day (that’s fun!), and also National Unicorn Day!  I need to start celebrating both of these! (I luurrrrveee Unicorns!)

10. National Hug Your Dog Day.  Hopefully people don’t need a holiday to give their dog hugs.  Mine always get a bazillion hugs every single day.  So much so that they get sick of me I think.

13.  National Be Kind to Lawyers Day.  Um, ok.

15. National High Five Day!  High five everyone you know!  and people you don’t!  Oh wait, the pandemic.  Substitute high fives for fist or elbow bumps and then get away from each other, pronto and wash.  That takes the fun out of that.  Thanks pandemic!  Sigh.

17. International Bat Appreciation Day.  I think this means the animals and not the baseball kind.    ‘Tis also International Haiku Poetry Day and National Cheese Ball Day!  So show your favorite bat some appreciation, while reading him/her a Haiku you wrote for them and sharing in a delicious snack of cheese balls.

Oh little Bat
Munching on a Cheese Ball
How I do adore Thee

24. National Pigs in a Blanket Day (Yum!  No I am not going to make a joke about little piggies all snuggled on a chilly spring night under a blanket together and how cute they must be!) and National Skipping Day!  While eating your little piggie in a blanket, I am guessing.  That combination sounds like a happy hobby.  Could be fattening too eating all those piggies in blankets, but do you suppose the skipping burns the calories off?

30. National Bubble Tea Day (I had to google this, it sounded so good and I guess I am behind the times cause everyone but me knows about this.  I plan to try some in rl soonly!) and we end the month with bubble tea aaaaaand…. National Hairball Day!  I wonder how people celebrate that last one?  With lots of catnip?

This all makes me realize one thing, humans are CRAZYYYY!

Oh and I did come in here to tell you about a freebie.  This comes from Shanti, via Ajuda Brazil.  It fits BOM and classic avatars (I’m getting away with it using BOM on my Maitreya Body).  There is a whole wall of Shanti freebies there, some more for classic bodies and some for mesh bodies too!  There are several floors of freebies there, so you definitely want to check it out!

This is enough blather from me for one post.  I’m off to the beach next time!

Peace & Pot Pies,

❤ Arielle

FabFree Mesh Body Feature: The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

FabFree Mesh Body Feature: The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

Top of the morning to you, FabFree! I hereby introduce the first FabFree Mesh Body Feature post. Today I will be sharing the Ultra Vixen Busty mesh body made by Ultra Vixen, one of our lovely FabFree designers. This body is one of the free mesh bodies that are available to learn about on the Fab Free Mesh Bodies and Heads listing. Please check out our listing to learn about more free mesh bodies and heads! Be sure to also check out the FabFree ’30 days’ list to find all the amazing offers new residents have access to when they join SL, as I am showing a freebie from that list today.

The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

Today I am wearing the Ultra Vixen Busty body by Ultra Vixen. This body is free for all Second Life residents under 31 days old, and it is a fully functional, BOM enabled mesh body. The freebie is the full package with all the latest updates for the body. Make sure that you tell any newbies about this offer in case they are in need of a mesh body!

The Ultra Vixen Busty body also includes a mesh head which is designed after the original classic head, but more detailed and fully Bento, allowing residents to retain their original “classic” look. You can also add different heads to the body. I added an older head gift by Akeruka Creations (no longer available) and I popped on a free choker which is a free gift for all at Osmia.

What can I wear with the Ultra Vixen Busty?

The free Ultra Vixen body wears custom mesh clothes that are sized for Ultra Vixen Busty. I decided to pair the body with the free jeans that are the current FabFree group gift at Ultra Vixen. I love the little FabFree logo on the butt! Go FabFree!

Sizes included

  • Ultra Vixen Busty
  • Ultra Vixen Perky
  • Ultra Vixen Flat Chested

The freebie body is also fully BOM, so bakes on mesh tops, undies, other clothing, skins, makeup, and tattoos can be worn with it as well. I threw on a lovely top by Mishmash Fusion, which I won for free on their lucky chairs, which are free to play without a group join. This lovely top is BOM/system layers so it can be worn on any bakes on mesh enabled mesh body or on system avatars as well! Mishmash Fusion has a huge selection of BOM and system clothing available on their lucky chairs, as well as mesh clothing items for men and women.

Thanks for stopping by!
