Why you should never let the elf drive….

Never Let the Elf Drive

Holy crow… what a long day! So, I had the bright idea to drive us to the beach for some fun in the sun. You know … a girls day out! I mean, we all had a long week and the men were off doing guy stuff. It’s the perfect time, right?  Plus, I know this great little beach waaayyy off the beaten path…

Apparently, it was a little too far of the beaten path. Cause I’m pretty sure we’re lost…..

At least we look good in the latest Hunt prizes from Petite Mort and Oubliette…. right?

We, The North

We The North

HAPPY CANADA DAY FAB FREE!

It’s the time of the year when I give thanks for all things maple syrup!  Up here in the North, we’re celebrating with barbecues, face paint, fireworks and hot Prime Ministers!  Up here in the True North, Strong and Free we like our beer, our nature and all sorts of cool stuff like poutine, ketchup chips and toques!  You guys do realize that this is the one day of the year I throw as many Canadian stereotypes at you as I possibly can, so hunker down on your chesterfields and grab your nanaimo bars, cuz we’re about to do it up Canuck-style!

Just Give’r

I trawled through Marketplace for just the right outfit to celebrate this most auspicious of days, and came up with a really cute jumpsuit by [sYs].  Their marketplace store is chock full of great dollarbies, and this one I’ve got on is no exception.  I topped off my look with the “Oh Canada” headband by Sugarplum Boutique which only cost 10L.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Perfect for singing O Canada and waving flags emphatically while grinning at my pet moose.  Speaking of flags, I grabbed this little animated Canadian flag by Persephone’s Grove for only 15L on marketplace as well, rounding out a nice lot of dollarbies and cheapies for my long weekend!

Jumpsuit Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

From up here in the wilds of Canada, I wish you all the best for this Canada Day!  Sending you loads of Beavertails and Butter Tarts!

Had to share… Free SL Entertainment! – Get Crackin’

I have been back to laugh at this Second Life Cooking Show video a couple times now, and I thought you might like to see some free entertainment made by Second Life Resident Splinter Smirnov.  So much work went into this character and the video!  Well done, Splinter.

Cloud Nine

Cloud Nine

It isn’t often that Gabe is the one to tell me about a good deal. But, I guess it had to happen sometime. of course, I’m talking about the 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event he just wrote about. But since there are oodles of gifts at The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event, I can get over being scooped.

Wrapped in Floral

It’s no secret I love a pretty floral print, the more vintage the better. So I was quick to grab this super cute wrap top. This is “Sonia” from FashionNatic and it’s the free gift at Cosmo.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

And Booted with Emeralds

Cute Boots! Need I say more?? These are the “Knit Sock Boots in Emerald” from Ricielli and they are gorgeous. You can zoom alllll the way in and each detail and texture is perfect! Cute boots AND a great build!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

I’m on Cloud Nine

I skipped this little gift at first. I thought it was “just furniture” and I’m loaded down with furniture already. Then I saw what it actually is… a wearable cloud! Your own personal little fluffy cloud to glide around on!  Needless to say, I’ve been floating everywhere since I picked it up.  Now, I don’t think MoonRabbit meant for this to be a vehicle, per se. BUT… you can glide along as you walk since the cloud is a wearable. There are four cute poses in the cloud chair and I can’t decide which one I like best!

The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event ends on June 15th ( TOMORROW) so hurry over  and get your shopping on!

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza Freya

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Nylon Pinkney’s “Nylon Is Online” Comic Strips

Ok.. so I know this is a little bit of an odd post on FabFree since it’s not a free dress or free shoes or anything, but hey – it’s FREE entertainment!

I am in love with Nylon Pinkney’s comic strips that are all about the crazy stuff that happens in SL.  Her humour is very entertaining, and her art is amazing!  As residents of Second Life yourself, I am sure you can relate to these funnies as I do.  Tee hee. ♥

You can find them all here – Nylon Pinkney’s Nylon is Online Flickr Album

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Hint “Help Freda sewing in the back of the shop and you will find your gift beside the sewing machines.”

Here are the details!

Hair – Clawtooth: Soaked (Brunettes w/roots Pack)
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Litzi
Dress – “Freda” Luisa Refashion Dress honey – 1L SEH Prize

Story of My Life


Awkward

Hey There Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. I feel like the sign board Pru is holding says what could be the title to Pru’s autobiography. lol Really, this sign board by Le Poppycock with the cheeky saying is one of many free gifts at The Liaison Collaborative. The current round of TLC is an anniversary round so there are several gifts either at the vendor booths or in the center of the event on little carts. In addition to this gift by Le Poppycock, Pru is wearing the free TLC gift by Canimal. Both gifts require the free-to-join TLC group tag.

The Sign Board – This free gift at TLC by Le Poppycock comes with the pose needed to hold this fun prop. The board itself has several sayings, some a bit cheeky like this one, and some not. It’s great for photos, and I would even use it as décor.

The Romper – Also a free gift at TLC, this romper by Canimal is a Maitreya fit (I believe). It comes on it’s own, unboxed. To get your copy of this gift and all the others, be sure to join the Liaison Collaborative group and wear the tag before clicking the gift boxes.

Here are the details:

I’m not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens!

FabFree: I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens!
Have you ever had one of those days where nothing is going right and you think an alien abduction might be your best option?  This is the kind of day I had yesterday…  It was most definitely a Monday on a Tuesday (courtesy of the long weekend I suppose lol), and by 8PM, I was ready to strategically place myself in a field and wait for the little green men to take me away.  Here’s hoping today is less abrasive for one and all.

This unique Alien Abduction Pose is and oldie, but a goodie, and you can find it for just 1L in the HelaMiyo marketplace store.  I hope you pick it up and have fun with it and make sure you pop those photos into the FabFree flickr pool so we can see!!
