Feeling Cute

blog 010921_007

Hello again Fabbies!

You know those days when if you could just feel *cute*, then everything would be just hunky dory?  Like, you’re not in the mood to exert the energy to strive for stunning or drop dead gorgeous, but if you can still be cute, well that’s just fine!  Cute is always a good thing.

That’s exactly how this dress from Seniha made me feel, just perfectly cute.  Perfectly cute and waiting (not so patiently!) for spring.  I found this dress at the Orsy Event, which goes until the end of the month.  It is a group gift for the event group, which is free to join and its made by Seniha.  It comes in three dark pink patterns, and it makes you feel hella cute!

Pair it up with this group gift hair from DP YumYum (group is free to join) and you are set to rock that cute look! 

The dress comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Better, warmer, sunnier days are coming my friends! We will all get there! In the meantime, stay safe and stay cute! 

Pups & Kitties!

A Lazy Sunday

A Lazy Sunday
A calm, relaxing Sunday is the perfect time to take a break and unwind.  Right now I am enjoying a nice up of tea (and my avatar enjoys her coffee) while I unpack my latest SL treasures.  I went to the 2Much Event and found some lovely free gifts.  I really likes this Benita dress Auralia’s booth.  The bright, yellow color is very cheery and I loved the embroidered design.  To get the dress, just join the 2Much Events free group and click the gift box.  Be sure to take a look around the event as there are plenty of lovely items for sale– and of course, more free gift.s 😉

But don’t wait too long, the 2Much Event is ending on Jan 16th.  You don’t want to miss getting this cute dress for your own.

A Return to Darkness

A Return to Darkness

Back in my early days of Second Life-ing, I was straight up a goth girl.   Probably because it’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, and it was fun to explore all the deep, darkness of it all.  I know I’ve blathered about this before, about being who you want to be in SL, etc.  But what I do want to touch upon is how FabFree made me realise that I didn’t have to have just one style.  When I started blogging here back in 2017, I realised that there were so many different freebies hanging around the grid that I could play around with, and since that moment I haven’t really looked back – I just get what I like!  But it is nice to revisit old friends, isn’t it?

The Deep Dark

I’m getting that Morgan le Fay feeling today (you know, when she’s an antagonist), and bubbling up some magical devilry in the depths of the earth.  To get this look, I need look no further than the Vanity Event.  They’ve got a bunch of gifts peppered around at different stalls, and they’re all free.  You don’t even need to join a group here, just click on the boxes and bags, and they’re yours.  I got this gorgeous gown over at the TOG display.  It comes in both black and white versions, and also has a pair of shoes included (not pictured).  Who doesn’t need a good gown?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Now…where did that little toad go?

Making it Shine

Making it Shine
Some of the things I love the most are sparkly – there’s something ever so wonderful about glitter and shine.  Other times, all I want is a bit of rugged with straps and buckles.  Today’s mood comes to you courtesy of not being able to make up my mind: Straps? Buckles? Purple? Shine? Ahhhh… why not have it all?

Uber Good

Grixdale have put out another free wearable demo of their latest release over at this month’s round of Uber.  The Calliope dress comes sized for Maitreya bodies and is in this lovely purple hue with the darker geometric triangles that give it a bit of a shiny texture.  No need to join a group here, just click on the free demo and it’s yours!  This round of Uber is running until January 22nd!

Sparkle, sparkle!

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

blog 010821_004

Hey adorable faboos!

Last night I had a dream I was wearing a beautiful magenta purple gown with lovely details on the bodice.  As I stepped out of my carriage I noticed I wore my hair up and it was adorned with oh so sweet yellow daisies. It was magical!  I knew my true love was waiting for me and as I crossed the brick walkway to find him, I woke up.  Alas.

Ohhh wait.  That wasn’t a dream!  It was sl!  But the rest of it was real!  The gown, the flowers, the carriage!  Let me tell you about the gown, as that’s what I am here to share.

I found this gown at Designer Showcase (open until Jan 25th).  It is a VIP group gift (group is free to join!) from Tori Stylez.  So this gown is absolutely free!  It comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Also, if you aren’t a fan of purple, it comes with a HUD that has 16 colors which include 4 bonus colors (so, 12 plus the 4 bonus).  All of which are gorgeous so you can use this dress for any occasion, just change up the color to suit the day!

Until next time, stay fabulous!!!

Coming Soon to Fab Free
Hey, Fab Free! I like making new avatars/looks, and I made this one in the spirit of Billie Eyelish with the green and black hairsyle. Do you think it looks like her? It kinda succeeded but I think she ended up having her own unique look… this new avatar I created is super cute either way.

Let’s get down to the details which are a beautiful 1 L mesh body and this great free sweater!

Sweet’s Ruth Mesh Body

As many of you know, I have been working on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing. I recently made a few updates to the page so you may want to look at some of the new bodies I posted. I decided to show off a body from that list, which is one of Ruth mesh bodies. This one is Sweet’s Ruth. Isn’t the body gorgeous? It fits many Maitreya clothes and shoes, although you will need to use the alpha hud to make many of the clothes fit. To use the alpha version of the body, just open up the box included in the folder that has the alpha HUD! This body is BOM and works with all BOM skins and other products. The Sweet’s Ruth mesh body costs only 1 L on the marketplace.

Here are some more details about the body:

Fits: Maitreya clothes and feet (flat, mid, and high) for the most part, with the use of the alpha hud provided.
Omega/Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?  This body is BOM only.
Bento? Yes.
Other Notes: Includes mesh nails with a nail colour hud. There is no mesh head included with this body.

You may also want to be aware of the following known issues about the body that the creator makes a note of:

“- A small glitch can appear between neck and head
(usually on high ground)
– A small glitch can appear with feet and hands in extreme poses.
– Medium High feet often need an alpha to fit Maitreya Shoes (provided!)
– Older skins with painted on nails will not match mesh feet. Use a nailfix! (provided!)”

Just as a side note, I used the Ariel head from LOGO to create this avatar. The LOGO group is free to join and every month in 2021 they are going to sell an older head of every month to group members for only 300L. In order to use the head, you need the 3.1 version LOGO customization hud. I was pleased to hear about this sale and grabbed the Ariel head up for that low price. The head is BOM compatible. There is NO mesh head included with the Sweet’s Ruth body, so you will need to use another mesh head of your own with it or get one of the mesh heads listed on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing to complete a mesh look. Alternatively, you can wear the Sweet’s Ruth body with a classic system head if you prefer.

Beatrix

Another item I am showcasing today is the Beatrix Sweater Dress, which you can grab at the zOOm Mainstore. I found this gift by using the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group, and they have many gifts that were available for free during the Christmas train event this group ran over the holidays. Technically, the event ended around Christmas time, but a lot of designers still have their gifts out at their store. You can look at the gifts using this page, although some of them may not be available still. It’s worth a look though because I found that quite a few of the gifts are still out! I had my eye on this lovely sweater by zOOm on the list and to my delight, it was still available! Simply join the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MSGN) group for free and the sweater is yours. zOOm has 2 free MSGN gifts out at the moment so grab them while you’re there!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Have fun!

Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom

TGIF FabFree!  I am ready to shake the madness of the week off and dress in some wild animal prints.  What else does one do on a Friday night?  I’m sure there are other options to be fair, but today animal prints sure are calling my name!

Happy Anniversary!

It’s Designer Showcase’s 10th anniversary, and that is definitely something to celebrate.  In true SL fashion, they’ve put lots of gifts out for members of their free to join group.  There are so many nice things from the quite generous designers, and you do know how I love to put together outfits from freebies I’ve found at an event!  Here’s what I put together today:

  • FREE Top and Pants from Le’La sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus with matching shoes in the box
  • FREE Hair by Tameless in several natural shades
  • FREE Ice cream by Body by Bayn in three different flavours

Designer Showcase is running until January 25th, so you’ve got a bit of time to check it out!

Happy Weekend!
