Make it Every Day

Make it Every Day

I’m about to go on a rant about how Valentine’s Day is every day.  Sure, it’s trite, people who avoid the holiday say those very words all the time to justify not buying into the commercial aspect of it all, but it is rather true.  It’s all about making time for that special someone!  You can cover that someone with kisses, Valentine’s Day or not!

One Hand in my Pocket

HolliPocket are having a bit of a clear-out sale right now – all their items are currently 40% off, and some of their older clothes are heading off to the retirement pile.  Along with all that goodness, there are two new group gifts:  this slinky little bralette top in two different versions  (one is a bit more transparent) in six different colours, and the kisses tattoo that meanders down my chest and back (with Omega and Maitreya appliers, as well as BOM system layers).  The even better news is that the group is temporarily free to join until March 12th.  Don’t wait!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Show some love, FabFree!

Dreams

FabFree Post: Dreams

Dreams are what you make them

There is nothing better than a dimly lit room to let your daydreams go wild. While the silence overcomes your ears and your mind drifts off to your quiet place… you feel a calm warm blanket of peace envelope you. You feel your arms grow heavy as your body slips into a lovely tranquil meditation, feeling your mind drift from one thought to another, then another you realize that you are in a state of contentment. Nothing bad can happen to you here, not here, you are safe at this desk in your dimly lit room.

 

{moss&mink} has updated their Free VIP Group Gift wall and I’ve spotted a new item! I jumped on the spring wall hang decor and I can say it’s lovely! It comes with two versions both are sublime for any home or workspace that needs a little splash of color. There is a one-time fee to join the group which is L$500 but there are a ton of past free group gifts as well as your monthly choice in decor items at the VIP Wall

Subtle Urges

Subtle urges

Hey FabFree! This week is just flying by! before you know it, it’ll be Friday and time for weekend fun. But before all that, I have some fun casual but put together looks to show off for you. It’s always fun to dress up or dress wild here on the Grid. But I always find myself drawn to some of the more subtle “everyday” outfits. Maybe I’m just a little boring…

Anyway… I found this super cute sweater over at The Annex on their Teleport HUB gift board. Which, of course means it’s free to us Teleport Hub group members! And it’s not just this delicious cobalt blue… it’s a whole fatpack! That’s twelve colors to choose from. You’re bound to find one or two colors to love. The Teleport HUB group is a measly little ten Lindens to join and that gets you access to hundreds of free gifts all over the Grid.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

My Milkshake

Fabfree Post: My Milkshake

My Strawberry Milkshake

Brings all the boys to the yard, oh man.. now I have that in my head… All from a lovely Milkshake made with love. Oh well… So I can’t wait until it is springtime so I can take some adventures outdoors and breathe some fresh air.

 

[WellMade] has done it again with another perfect free group gift! This Yareli Outfit is a cute addition to my collection from their shop. The free gifts [WellMade] puts out are of the same quality as the ones you pay for in the shop. Making this group and their gifts a high-quality catch for everyone around!

This bodysuit and jacket come with a texture hud to change the jacket color, bodysuit, pockets, and belt between two color options. Which you can see in the ad image below. There is no going wrong with any of the options you choose! The hud comes along free inside the package, SCORE!

Hey Fab Fam! Welcome to Friday! 

I overheard some folks talking about how hard it was to find “good stuff” on the Grid that didn’t coast a fortune. And I thought to myself, “What???’ Of course we all know about the Fab… but there are a ton of other helpful sources for low cost or free things. I personally love the Teleport HUB group and today, I found a new to me group – Designer News. The group is free to join and has tons of notes and notices about new promos and gifts and sales. Then I saw that one of my fav designers had a gift up for the group and I was sold!

This is the ‘Rafaela’ dress from Pink Mango and you can pick it up for free as a member of the Designer News Group. Don’t you love the subtle shimmer? Pink Mango has a bunch of group gifts up in addition to their own group so you can get some awesome sources when you go to pick this cute sweater dress up!  Get out there and SHOP, my dears!

99 Red Balloons

FabFree Post: 99 red balloons

Ninety-nine dreams

99 Dreams and it only takes 1 more to find the perfect joy. How many of you wake up in the morning remembering your dreams, how vivid are they? Mine happens to be so realistic I can taste the foods and smell the sweetness of the flowers in the fields.

The LOVE Balloon

The first stop we’ll hit today is the Cupid Inc Event that ends February 28th. So you still have time to snag this very large, very lovely free gift courtesy of the Novel Group! The gift is attainable by joining the free group and slapping the lovely LOVE balloon vendor in the middle of the event. This has to be one of the most thoughtful balloon assortments I have seen as a free gift!

All the shades of Love

Dahlia has some items up in a hunt that is adorable and so perfect for this themed love scene. They aren’t easy to find as the hunt items are scattered across the sim. You’ll be looking for items that can be found in stores that are marked with the -SHADES OF LOVE- sign. Each prize is L$20 so that makes this hunt a score!!

The hunt does not include green areas! It is only inside the buildings !!! So that’s a helpful hint for you! The hunt ends on February 25th. So you have time, but don’t wait around because this won’t be around forever!

Shades of Love Hunt

 

Dahlia Group Gift is that beautiful mylar balloon you see with 7 color options! The group is currently set to free for this week, making the gift 100% free. After this week though the group fee will be back to L$50, so don’t wait to snag this gift and their past ones while you can!

Girl’s Night Out

Snapshot_011

Hey fab fam!

Hope you are staying toasty in all the snow that seems to be nearly everywhere right now!  (except Florida, where I wish I was.  lol)

Since I am watching it snow I thought it a good time to have a nice sl night out, I brought my sweet shih tzu Tara with me (she is named after a real life shih tzu I had and lost a few years ago and still dearly miss, but real life Tara (aka Miss Tee) was black and white), while she and I are both introverts, we love a little adventure, so off we go!

I found this adorable sweater at Poeme.  It is their group gift for February/March and their group is only 1L to join!  The pants are by WellMade and I found those over at the Free Dove, and they were well… free! (Natch!)  Aline has also highlighted them here.  They really are a great pair of pants and you can’t beat the price!

The sweater comes in:

  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Fitmesh – xs-xl

The pants come in:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

They also come with a HUD that lets you choose between black or red.  All things perfect for a casual/dressy-ish night out with my Tara girl.

Until next time fam, when I share with you a really cute new dress for spring!

Keep on, keepin’ on!

After Work Gift Run

ffkartelsemller 

I just got in from a long day at work and had to figure my way home through snow up to my waist. I thought it would be a good day to create something nice and sunny and go for a shirtless run through the city to work up a sweat. Also to show everyone out there my first FabFree post. As the newest member of the team I have to be on my A-game and keep up with all of the amazing bloggers on this site.

First off, Kartel is currently featuring this amazing Fat Pack of shorts via a gift from joining the L’Homme Magazine group which can lead you to many other free gifts. . These Mechanical shorts come with Multiple colors for the shorts themselves as well as the strap material. They come in sizes for Geralt, Gianni, Jake and Legacy. You can pick them up as well as join the L’Homme group at the following location.

Next are these awesome socks and shoes by Semller. The basic sock pack is free and comes fit for Males in Jake, Gianni and Legacy as well as multiple female fits. The great thing about these socks is that they come with a style and color Hud in which you can change the socks from slouchy or short to calf high as well as the color. Certain areas of the socks can be alpha’d to fit many different shoe brands. This brings me to shoes. This is a fat pack of shoes that you can get by joining the group for only 30L. These shoes come in both Male and Female sizes just as the socks above. The best part is they are completely customizable with a color and glow Hud to suit your tastes for the moment. You can pick up both the Socks and the Shoes at the Semller & Hiemal Main Stores.

Shorts Sizes Included

  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Legacy

Socks and Shoes Sizes Included

  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Legacy
  • (Female Sizes included also)

Thanks everyone and I hope you enjoy my first post with more to come.

Walking on Air!

ldr_009

Hey fab fam!

I’ve been thinking (and that is always dangerous!), wouldn’t it be odd (and sometimes disconcerting…and sometimes really cool!) if we could do the things we can do in second life, in real life?  Like… change your hair, your face, your body…on a whim!  Wicked cool.  Possibly even wickeder cooler… teleporting!  With my partner and best friend on the opposite side of the rl planet, that is something we both wish for!  I know some people would like the ability to fly.  I am not one of those people.  lol  This chickie is chicken and does NOT fancy heights!

Now, on the flip side of all that comes the disconcerting….

One time when I was a noob I came home and everything was gone, my house, all my belongings, everything.  It would not be fun to lose everything you own, plus your house in real life!  You get home and OMG where’s my house???  It was here when I left!  OK, so another scenario… you get dressed, go out and you can see your clothes but no one else can.  !!!!!!  You turn into a red cloud!  You walk off a platform and fall down through the sky.  Or you live on a platform in the sky and sometimes people fly by.  Or now with mesh bodies, other people see you as a weird mix of body parts floating around and clothes floating around.  Awkward!!!  One last one…. imagine going to the store in rl and having to wait for everything to rez cause all you see is grey!  That’s one issue I’m glad not to have!  lol

In second life we can be anything we want to, go anyplace we want to (mostly!), it can be like a waking dream.  Just like real life, it can get expensive!  Thank goodness for the fab free blog where you can find amazing free and low priced goodies for your second life!  On that note… here’s the next one for you!

My outfit today is a super cute group gift from Loud Rebel Design.  Their group is free to join.  I felt so cute wearing it that it had me walking on air!  Or very nearly walking on air.  There are several trends right now I am finding super cute and jumpsuits is one of them.   So thanks to LRD for this group gift!

This jumpsuit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Stay safe and reach for the stars fab fam!
