Nowhere Over the Rainbow

Nowhere Over the Rainbow

Welp, it’s Monday again Fab Free!  We just keep on rollin’ on, don’t we?  Sometimes when things get a bit monotonous, I need to bust out the bright happy colours in SL and tuck a few flowers in for good measure.  Also, I believe someone once said “When you don’t dress like everyone else, you don’t have to think like everyone else”.  That’s a sentiment I can get behind!

In The Name of Love

There’s a new group gift at Safira celebrating Pride!  This sexy little cropped tee is free with your 50L group join.  You gotta love that, because there’s a massive wall of gifts to pick up too while  you’re there.  The Pride top comes with an HUD of a dizzying array of colours, as well as several different rainbow options to represent the different realms of the LGBTQ+ community.  Gotta love it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Middle of Nowhere

If you have a growing collection of backdrops like I do, or even if you’re looking for a nice little building to add to your living area, I found a cool free backdrop by The Bearded Guy over at the Unik event.  If you join their free group, and head over to the group gift booth, you can pick this cool little shed (which you can’t go into, but is quite detailed nevertheless) for free!  I can’t say no to photo ops!

Hope your Monday is brighter than bright!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ava Design

 

Hi There Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog. We’ve been long over due for a Designer of the Week post. So here we are with a new edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week featuring Ava Design. At Ava Design you’ll find ladies mesh fashion that includes everything from casual dresses and street-wear to latex and lingerie. I also spotted a few complete head-to-toe outfits. Most of the clothing did appear to be fitted for multiple mesh bodies as well. There’s also a small section of home furnishings on the second floor.

This wouldn’t be a Fabulously Free in SL post without all the details about the freebies available at Ava Design. The above photo shows all the available group gifts and freebies. On the first floor you’ll find a handful of free Ava Design group gifts to the left as you enter. The Ava Design group is free to join. In the same area there is a group only lucky letter chair, and a Midnight Madness board that is free for everyone. No group is needed for the Midnight Madness board. After you check out the Ava Design group gifts, you’ll want to check out the second floor. Upstairs you’ll find an entire wall of group gifts for other store associated groups. This is where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Ava Design. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag to get this free gift. If you’re not already a member of Fabulously Free in SL, not to worry, the group is free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Nostalgic Record Store Day


Nostalgia

Hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog, I hope you’re ready for some sweet nostalgia via the Record Store Day gacha set by Petite Mort for the current round Gacha Garden. Don’t hate because these items are gachas, I promise I would not share them if I didn’t believe they were well worth the effort. The moment I saw this Record Store Day set by Petite Mort I had to have it, and honestly am so excited to share it with you!

Collecting records goes deep for me. I have so many great memories from childhood on up through recent years of listening to music on a record player, and of buying albums. Then there’s that crackle before the music plays, looking at all the artwork on the albums, the feel of the vinyl, it’s a little bit like magic in my world. I’m so glad Love was able to get together with me to create this photo, and help tap into all those awesome memories and share this set with you. This second photo is her version of this visual story.

FabFree: I got your back

Coming back from memory lane, and returning to the actual gacha set, this too cool set by Petite Mort is just 50 linden per play at Gacha Garden. There are 14 commons and 2 rares. There is also an exclusive gift tote that is awarded after 20 pulls. All the clothing items are sized for the following bodies: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), and Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus). You can see the tote more clearly in the ad above. I’ll include the gacha key for more details about all the items in the set below.

Cottage Dreams

Cottage Dreams

It’s Sunday Funday, Fab Free!  It’s the perfect day to do some gardening, and potter about in my little English cottage.  Well, I mean…it’s probably the thing that people do who own cottages and like to garden.  I, on the other hand prefer to just sit back and admire the blooms while talking airily about how wonderful the petunias look.  If you’re like me and you like to hang out in gardens boasting about the work you did without ever really having a speck of dirt under your nails, then I’ve got the perfect deal for you!

Enjoy the Harvest

It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday!  This month, Harvest Moon have put out this super adorable cottage and garden set out for only 69L!  The entire set is super adorable, and comes complete with a really bright garden, several large trees, potted plants and an extremely livable cottage that it is more than just cute.  You have the choice of just rezzing the cottage, or both the cottage and garden.  The cottage has a Land Impact of 163, whereas both cottage and garden come out to 350 Land Impact.  Rezzing it out was simple as anything, and I was well impressed with how it all looked that I was quite reticent to put it all away!  To get yours, head on over to Harvest Moon – this deal for Syndicate Sunday will only be out for the week, so don’t delay! There are other great deals for you at other participating shops, so make sure you take a look at the Second Life Syndicate website!

Happy Gardening!

Hi Fab Free! I’m back with some beautiful landscape/scenery finds from Simply Shelby. The setting in the above photograph is almost entirely made up of either one of the 30 Linden Saturday items at Simply Shelby or the equally awesome and completely free April group gift also at Simply Shelby. The only reason I say “almost” is because that small patch of green grass is not included. Keep reading for all the details about each fabulous offer at Simply Shelby.

30L SaturdaySimply Shelby has several offers for today’s 30L Saturday items. Generally speaking, I believe Simply Shelby does leave these items up until the following Saturday, however I wouldn’t guarantee that, so do not miss these just in case! I picked up her Druid’s Cave both because I love it, and of course because I really wanted to share it with you! This set includes the cave, with the added vines, candles, the little crystals and mushrooms, along with the Druid Priest, the alter, and an additional vine. The Druid Priest, the alter, and the vine are all copy, so you can rez out as many as you like, or leave them out all together. The cave is copy as well. No group is needed for this awesome set, just teleport to Simply Shelby and run over to the “Sales” building where you can purchase this set for just 30 linden along with several other fantastic items.


Simply Shelby Mystical Druid Cave

April Group Gift – The free April group gift at Simply Shelby is this lovely maple tree with surrounding floral landscape, rocks, and the adorable bunny all together. This item is no transfer, however it is copy and modify so you can adjust it to your liking if you so desire. Just be sure to make a copy first! To get your copy of this free group gift, you’ll need the Simply Shelby group tag. The group is currently free to join. Also, there are quite a few other group gifts also available. The Simply Shelby group gifts are located in the VIP/Hunts & Events building alongside the Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards.

Here are the details:

Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH HAIR Essena – variety
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

FabFree: Spring Really Has Sprung!

Hello there Fabulouses!  It’s true – spring really has sprung as it’s the first day of spring today (SQUEEEEE), and it’s sprung inworld too, with The Wash’s Spring Has Sprung Cart Sale Event beginning today!  The streets are lined with spring themed displays by designers from across the grid, all priced with items between 10L and 50L.  Today in my blog post, I will be featuring a couple of clothing items by Shae’s Designs and decor by KK Home that you can find at the event… as well as a free gift by Lagom at The Liaison Collaborative.

My Springy Outfit

These adorable denim Misty Jean Shorts and April Tops are available at The Spring Has Sprung Event in eight different prints / colours each.  The tops are priced at 25L each and the shorts at just 10L each!  I know I was tempted to grab a few!!  I am wearing these items on Belleza Freya and they fit well, but hey are both also available in several mesh body fits as listed below.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

The Decor

It’s not often I put together a scene and blog home and garden items.  I generally just go somewhere pretty and stand in it lol, but I was inspired by the spring decor by KK Home at The Spring Has Sprung Event to decorate a little balcony for this shot.  In my photo you’ll see the Tulip Planter Box, the Pussy Willow Vase and The Vintage Pitcher w/ Daffodils.  All three of those items are available for 25L at the event along with plenty of other spring and Easter decor.

Falling Flowers

In my photo you’ll see some pink blossoms and petals blowing in the wind.  This is Lagom’s Falling Flowers TLC Gift that you can pick up with your free The Liaison Collaborative group tag at The TLC Event!  I have attached it to my avatar for photography, but you could rez this item as decor too.  We have shown several of the group gifts available in this Anniversary round of The Liaison Collaborative – here’s a rundown if you missed them!
