Sharpened Pencils

Sharpened Pencils

It’s far too early in the year to feel this way, but this outfit is kind of giving me back to school vibes.  I’m sorry, really I am… But you know that whole feeling of new clothing, a hint of houndstooth, the promise of new adventures, and perfectly sharpened pencils.  I’m a sucker for that kind of thing, though I know that school has just ended (for the weirdest year ever).  Enjoy the summer, but if you are feeling a bit of nostalgia, I’ll tell you where you can grab it!

Mustard and Houndstooth

This sweet and vaguely reminiscent of “Clueless” outfit is courtesy of Luas‘ lucky boards.  They were recently updated with two cute outfits, this one being one of them!  The Luas group is 50L to join, and with that fee you’ll gain access to some awesome gifts, as well as these lucky boards.  A bit of patience is all that’s required after that – just wait for your letter to come up!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I Love it

There are so many things to show you from SL17B, that I couldn’t resist showing you this lovely hairstyle from Love.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the Shop & Hop.  You’ve still got time to pick up goodies from this massive event, so grabbing this free fatpack of hair shouldn’t be too much of a chore.

I swear I’ll go back to thinking about summer real soon!

Roleplay, Witches and Hunts!

image 2 improved

I was inspired by a post Bunnie Francis did a few months ago about Spellbound, run by Madpea. I did the Spellbound hunt/game last week, and it is super challenging and fun. If you finish the game you can even win some free prizes, as Bunnie showed us in her post. Happily, Spellbound is running until December, so maybe you can play it for fun sometime this summer after the craziness of June’s freebie hunting is over!

Today I’ll be showing the freebies I used to make my witch roleplay outfit, which I had fun putting together and wearing while I explored the Spellbound sim.

The PoseStuff Hunt: 1 of the 5 Allstuffs Hunts

Right now the All Stuff hunt is going on, and I’ve been working my way through some of the hunts going on there all month. Wow, is this a huge and impressive hunt! The poses used here are one of the hunt prizes on the Posestuff hunt, from the first stop on the hunt.  These poses come from a whole pack by Poses With Attitude, which can be found for free at the Stuffs sim. This stop will take you to the starting point for the Womenstuff, Menstuff, Posestuff, Kidstuff and Homestuff start point, so you better start hunting now if you want to get in on this great multi-hunt event! For more information on each of these hunt go to the stuff groups website, click on the hunt you want to do at the top and click the hunt hints listing for each hunt. I have also linked the hunt pages directly above. All five hunts end on June 30th.

This Adorable Dress

If you want to pull off the look I have going here for some magical roleplay, you can actually get this great dress for free. This dress is one of my favourite items, and it is a lucky chair prize at the Versus Event sim. They have a number of lucky letter outfits available right now. To get the lucky prizes, all you need to do is join the media-sl.com group, which is free to join. The nice thing about the free Versus lucky letters is that you can still get them even if the current round of the event is closed; the sim with the lucky chairs stays open all the time. So hop on over to Versus right now, wait for your letter and grab this dress for free!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

The Amazing Bonnie Boots

These great boots, called the Bonnie Boots, are a free MM Board prize by Paper.Sparrow. I am in looove with these boots and anyone can get them by participating in their free Midnight Madness boards everyday! The MM prizes rotate, but keep yours eyes out for them at Paper.Sparrow!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and happy hunting!

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Satus Inc.

Happy Friday Fab Free! Thank you as always for being here. I’m excited about today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. Satus Inc. has participated as a Fab Free designer for quite a few years. It’s hard to describe the Satus Inc. store simply because they have so much to offer. This could almost be consider a “one-stop” shop. Really and truly there’s something for everyone.

At Satus Inc. you’ll find female fashion, poses, furniture, decor, gadgets and gizmos. The ladieswear at Satus Inc. is mostly comprised of casual dresses, though there are what I would call business attire dresses, and even a few cocktail type gowns. You’ll also see casual clothes like shorts, sleepwear, and t-shirts, along with shoes and some accessories. Most of the ladies clothing is upstairs.

As for the furniture and decor there is a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, with PG and Adult animations. I suggest taking a moment to really look around. You never know what you might find. There are also quite a few fun and useful gadgets at Satus Inc. Again, I strongly suggest planning a shopping trip to check out all this shop has to offer. Poses are under the stairs to the left, and the furniture is on the first floor to the right, with a little bit of everything else in between. Group gifts of all kinds are on the wall to the left in front of the stairs.

Satus Inc. Group

There are 30 group gifts for the Satus Inc. group. That’s not a mistake, the Satus Inc. group is just 25 linden to join and there are 30 total group gifts out at this time. There’s also a group-only Midnight Madness board, and a single Lucky Letter board with no group required. Joining the Satus Inc. group gets you instant access to all the gifts, and updates on future gifts and promotions.

Just wear your group tag and click the gift vendor under the Fab Free group joiner at Satus Inc. You’ll see this free gift waiting on the same wall as the other group gifts.

One Earth

One Earth

One Earth, One Heart

While out looking for a cute bed for my new studio apartment, I found myself over at Lagom and was slapped with a load of Lucky Letter boards of items I haven’t seen! So I ran over to the group and amazingly enough it’s a FREE GROUP! So I was so excited I called a couple of friends to hang out with me while I waited for the letter to roll on mine.

I was able to snag a few items before having to leave the sim happier than I arrived. Not sure when the items will change, or if they do but I wanted to share these FREE gems with you lovelies and hopefully I can snag that closet I’ve been eyeing for two days 😉  Between the wall hanging world and the beds, my love for Lagom was reignited once again!!

Green Goodness

Coming soon to Fab Free

As much as I love purple, green is in a heavy competition for my favourite colour and with this great green outfit I managed to pull off today with a few free finds, green is taking the win today! It’s definitely very easy, and stylish, being green today.

Vivian- Lucky Board Prize

This gorgeous green hair is Vivian by EscalateD, and it is one of their lucky board prizes for members of their VIP group. The EscalateD group, which costs 99 L to join, gives you access to numerous fatpacks of hair which include unnatural and natural hair colour options. This luscious green is achieved using the Unnatural essentials HUD included with the lucky board prize.

In my last post I mentioned the zk store, and here I am showing off another one of the awesome gifts you can get from this great designer. These Paula boots are one of the free gifts you can get at their main store. They are just great and I can see them going with many outfits. You can change the colour, gems, metals and pearls of the boots to match whatever outfit you need. These are unique and I love them!

“Who is this girl I see, staring straight back at me? When will my reflection show who I am inside?”

So… I have been really excited for the new live-action movie of Mulan to come out in theatres but that has, unfortunately, been delayed. The good news is that I can dress up in a Mulan-esque costume (pre-warrior) here is SL with these amazing group gifts and prizes!

Mickellena

This striking gown and shawl is the current Exclusives group gift at Donni’s Dollies. I am not sure how long this gift will be available, so go quickly to pick it up before it switches over to the next temporary gift! This is the Mickellena Gown & Shawl, which comes in the Luxurious Brocade Pine pattern. You can get this gift by joining the Donni’s exclusives group. This group costs 25 Linden to join, and it gives you access to monthly temporary exclusive gifts and sales.

Off to Hogwarts!

Off to Hogwarts
Good day my lovely witches and wizards! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE all things Harry Potter? I have been a Potter-maniac since I grew up with the series as a child and this week I was able to collect a few free and on-sale goodies in SL that are HP-inspired! What a treat!

Goodies from Muggleborn

At least one store in SL that is partially inspired by the Harry Potter series is Muggleborn, although it certainly takes an adult twist on the theme. Note that Muggleborn is an Adult-rated sim and if you are not over 18 you definitely cannot visit it; there are a number of adult-only themed items sold here. Aside from that warning, however, I absolutely LOVE this store! They even have this AMAZING top, shorts and ties set on their lucky boards to play for all to win. It includes a top, shorts and a tie. There are different styling/ stripping options for the top and tie, and the shorts can be adjusted for male/trans avatars as well. The tie also has different styling options. Each item comes with an HUD to change the colour pattern to the respective four Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff). To get these items, walk towards the back of the store until you see the “muggle” lucky boards and join Muggleborn‘s free group to play and win this amazing outfit!

In addition to these amazing gifts, Muggleborn has many fantasy-themed free group gifts and free past hunt items which you can get at the front of the store. This is also a brand new Stay at Home Club gift from them, which is a wand with a colour hud! This one may take the cake from me because now I can run around SL with a wand whenever I like with this free gift!!! I am so psyched about this!

Wisteria is Perfect…

This hair is perfect for visiting Hogsmeade, or for bundling up in the winter (even if it is spring now… it’s still snowing where I come from). The hair seen in this look above is Wisteria from EscalteD. This is a past MM board prize, and you can also win it on their Lucky Boards if you join their VIP group for 99L. This hair is a full fatpack of natural and unnatural colours which allow you to change the hair to different styles, change the colour of the hat and the pom pom and the hair bows on each braided ponytail. If you have no attention span for that, every hair at EscalteD is currently on sale for 50% as part of the Let’s Stay at Home event, so anyone can buy it right now at a discounted price.

Harry Potter Skins @ Ritual

Ritual Skins Sale- A Harry Potter Skins Collection

I should also mention that these gorgeous skins I am wearing are from Ritual. They currently have a massive sale on, where all of their skins are on sale for 100L. This is an amazing deal, and although not under our 75L limit, it is a steal I thought I should mention with this post. These skins normally go for hundreds and they are just gorgeous. These are four Harry Potter-themed skins which were previously sold at the Majik event sponsored by Muggleborn. Seen in order, this is Griffin, Slyther, Raven and Huffle. The skins include two tones each and the makeup is included in the skins; they can’t be removed. These are beautiful, so I just had to mention them! The Ritual store may be downsizing, so now is the time to support this amazing skins creator.

Have a magical day, Fab Free!
