Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

I think this shirt generally sums up my feelings.  And probably a lot of yours too, dear readers.  Say no more!

Uber it Up!

There are few days left to this round of Uber, and we’ve shown you lots of the free goodies you can grab on the blog.  I couldn’t help but show you this fun tee from one of my fave designers, Miss Chelsea.  It’s completely free when you visit Uber, no need to join a group!  There are so many fun gifts at Uber that you’ll probably be unpacking for ages.  Don’t wait though, this round ends on the 22nd!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Bonbon Goodness

There’s a new group gift over at Bonbon.  Their hair is so cute, I can rarely hold myself back from their new releases.  To get this fun hairstyle (which comes with several different bang options, as well as loads of different hair colour options in the HUD), all you have to do is join their group for 99L.  You gain access to a whole pile of their older gifts too when you join, so totally worth it!

Come on 2020, get your act together!

*Leaps back onto the Blog with a spray of glitter and a burst of pumpkin spice** I’m back, Fab Folks! Hah, y’all didn’t think you’d get rid of me that easily, did ya? Mister Juli and I had a wonderful break together and now I’m ready to blog all the fabulous Fall that the Grid has to offer.

Mystical

I guess I’m eagerly anticipating Halloween ’cause when I saw this gorgeous witch’s robe from Kitty Creations, I had to have it. This is the Mystical Night robe and the Aelvabeth hair add on. This lovely robe can be yours for free and a little hunting for the Renaissance Hunt. There is also a great outfit for our gentlemen in the same prize item. The hair add on makes the hood easy to wear without going “bald”. That HUD has eight natural colors to choose from.

The Renaissance Hunt and Faire run until 27 September so you’ve got time to hunt down all the goodies.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya

Back to Cool

Back to Cool

It’s back to school time in my part of the world, and I’m always a sucker for new clothes, new stationery and new friends!  There’s something exciting about September, it’s always been one of my faves.  A big shout out to all the teachers heading back to uncertain circumstances in schools, whether you’re teaching in person or doing remote learning, and also to all the students who are heading back to a school building that doesn’t function the way it did in the past.  Stay safe, education land!

Feeling Pretty, Yet Again!

The other day I showed you the newest group gift from Pr!tty, and I’m happy today to show you the second one that you’ll also get!  The Pr!tty group is free to join, and you’ll find this full fatpack of hair in group notices.  I love every minute of it!

Alpha Beta

Another group gift you’re sure to enjoy is yet another you can get over at Alpha Female.  This group is also free to join, so this full outfit is an awesome deal!  In the box you’ll find the top, jacket and jeans, perfect for back to school awesomeness.  The top and jacket combo can be worn separately from the jeans, so they’re a good staple to add to your collection.  Oh, there’s also a pair of boots in the box too!

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass

  • Maitreya

Happy New Year!

Hair and nails…we can never have enough, can we?  I won’t talk too much, let’s get right down to the action!

Feelin’ Pr!tty

There’s a new group gift at Pr!tty!  Well… actually there are two.  But I’m showing off one tonight!  The super high and floofy pony called Brittany will have you feeling extra peppy and cute!  You can grab it in group notices when you join the free Pr!tty group.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, so they’ve totally got you covered.

Nailed it!

To make sure you’re looking fab all over, Belle Epoque also have a new group gift of very pretty polished bento nails.  They have lots of different gradient colour options in the HUD and are rigged for Maitreya fingers.  There are some great deep Fall colours in there, so you’ll be ready for the season!  Grab them (and all the other awesome gifts) by joining the Belle Epoque group for just 10L.

See you beauties soon!

Crazy Cat Lady

Crazy Cat Lady

I don’t think anyone really sets out to become a “Crazy Cat Lady.” I think it’s something that sort of claims you. From the first kitten/cat that enters your life, the seed of cat lady-ness (or in some cases, crazy cat guy-dom)  germinates. I also think that from then on other cats know you’re now a “cat person” and they find you. Whether it be a stray kitten meowling for help in the parking lot where you work, or adoption ads from animal shelter pages on social media… they find you. Suddenly you find yourself in this situation, crouching on the floor with several of what you now refer to as your fur babies.

All the kitties aside, I do have some fantastic freebies to share with you. My top is a free group gift by UNA at the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event. My stylish bun is a freebie as well. It’s a free gift at SHEGO. Keep reading for details about both free finds, while I herd these silly cats into the kitchen for some food and water.

UNA

Yes, you read that right. There is an event titled Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It’s geared toward the recent influx of chest sizes choices with some of the female bodies. The important part here is that UNA has a free group gift at the event. This cute top is free to all UNA group members. There’s a group joiner at the IBTC event, and the UNA group is free to join. This top comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with lots of options. There’s also a cool glowing UNA logo on the back of the shirt, and an optional glowing UNA pin that attaches on the front of the shirt.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Petite, Flat, Original), MeshBody Legacy (Perky, Original), Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

SHEGO

Once again I’ve been doing some exploring in Second Life, and I’m glad I did. I came across a hair shop called SHEGO that has this ultra cute top bun for free. There’s no group needed, just purchase the hairstyle from the vendor for zero linden. This style comes with an Omega applier hair base, and a system layer hair base. The bun part of the style, and the side wisps are mesh.

Cool in the Shade

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! I am rocking a new look today, and it’s always fun to experiment with different fashion styles. I might as well rock it in the shade in the sun while I still can.

Nitro Panic

First off, you can grab this awesome ripped dress by Nitro Panic on the Marketplace. I love this dress, and it comes in a few pattern options. I love the “Babygirl” version of the dress the most. This amazing dress only costs 1 Linden.

Sizes Included: 

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

(red) Mint

I found this hairstyle as a free group gift at a store I’d never been to before, (red) Mint . The group gifts are scattered throughout the store and you just need the free group to grab them all. This hairstyle I have on was my favourite of the lot, so enjoy the gifts from (red) Mint if you haven’t tried them before!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Green-eyed Monster

Green-eyed Monster

Hello Fab Free, how are ya? I’m doing good all things considered. I sincerely hope you are as well. Guess what?! A new round of Uber started today and there are gifts! That said I am just going to get right into things. This post is featuring the free Uber gifts from Cae and Tram, along with a store credit group gift at ViSion.

Cae

I love Cae jewelry collections. They are always detailed, include lots of color choices for metals and gems, and are sized via the same hud. This full jewelry set is available at Uber.  Honestly, I think the bracelet is the prettiest piece in the set and it is the free event gift.

Tram 

I love this hairstyle from Tram. It’s the cutest messy bob. The add-on bangs are free at Uber. They come with a full fatpack hud, and a customization hud for extra tenting and 5 style choices. You know what that means? You can add these wispy bangs to other Tram hairstyles you own and they will match perfectly. I’m wearing the bang style 3 from the hud by the way.

ViSion

Alright, this one might be short lived, so do not wait on it! ViSion has a board at their store that grants group members 350 linden in store credit. The ViSion group has a join fee of 18 linden. That’s not a typo, it really is just 18 linden. I picked up this very cute though daringly-low cut sweater for 250 linden using my store credit and have a little left over for future purchases. It comes in a solid color and a patterned version.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy (regular, Perky)
