This One’s For the Bloggers

Flames of Love

To the Photographers and Bloggers!

It’s about time I showed some love to all the amazing bloggers and photographers out there. You know you all inspire me to do better… I just love browsing Flickr and checking out everyone’s pictures! I have three cute freebies today for all the bloggers and photographers of SL to enjoy.

Posin’

I have been working on setting up a small photo studio for myself so I was looking for the perfect pose stand. I was tearing my hair out trying to find the perfect one! I found a great little pose stand from Shanti tucked away in my inventory. This stand is free, and you will find it at the front of their store on the wall cubby in a small little box. No group is needed for this little freebie. The pose stand is no copy, so be careful not to lose it! Make sure to rezz the gift on a sandbox or on your land. Once you have it opened, just rezz it at your place, click “edit”, and then “drag” animations into the contents menu of the pose stand. I was able to add ALOT of my poses to it, so this is going to be very useful for my blogging ventures! I used the Shanti pose stand to create the photographs in my post today in my new studio.

an lar [poses]

Some of the poses I loaded up into the stand are from an lar [poses]. They have many freebies on their Marketplace. I have been known from time-to-time to spread the news of these freebies to any blogger friends I meet. They are so great! The pose I am wearing today is from the free Ellie Series. FabFree coverage of more free poses from an lar [poses], which are all still available HERE, can be found in the following posts by my fellow bloggers and myself (check our credits to see where the poses come from):

The “Flames of Love” Backdrop

Finally, the backdrop behind me is another freebie at Shanti. Just head to the front of the store and pick it up in the little yellow bag. No group join is required for this one! It’s so pretty! It has a glowing hear in the background with lovely purple patterns and shine. Radiant!

Have fun, FabFree!

By the Sea

062322 - By the Sea 01

Some days I wish I lived by the ocean. I could take walks on the sandy beaches and ride my bike on the boardwalks. Maybe I could do some window shopping at the local boutiques and grab a drink at a cafe. But, I do not live by the ocean…so I do these things inworld instead.

Cheeky Monkey Hunts – ‘All the Colors’

For the month of June, Cheeky Monkey Hunts is running a super fun hunt called ‘All the Colors’. You can see details and hints on their website. The hunt runs until June 30th at 12pm SLT. Each participating designer has three choices of prizes they can set out: 1L, 25L or 50L. The 25L and 50L prizes are exclusive to the hunt. You can find the starting point here.

  • My necklace and earring set and the bicycle are available from Loredana Loring of Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop. The jewelry is unrigged with a resize script and the earrings have a script in them that allows the colors to swirl and move! The bicycle is so cute! It can be used as decor and you can also sit on it, as there are 12 PG poses in it…split between male and female. Both items are 25L exclusives.
  • The tank top comes in a set of three colors from Mikki McLain of The Bold Llama T-shirt Co. It is a 50L exclusive prize. The set includes this black, a blue and a burgundy shade. They fit the following mesh body sizes:
    • Belleza
    • Legacy
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Reborn
    • Slink
    • TMP
    • Tonic

A few more things…

I wanted to grab a few other things that are currently free or super cheap, to style the outfit with. Can I just say, I could be…am guilty of stuffing my inventory FULL of gifts from the Marketplace!

  • The summery shorts I paired with the tank top are only 10L on Marketplace from a store I found called Gifts Home. They include an HUD that allows you to choose from four different prints and they fit several mesh bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink
    • TMP
  • My cute little sneakers are only 1L on Marketplace, from MH Unique Design. You can change the colors with the included HUD on them as well, with 10 print options. And they fit the following bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink

Feel the Rainbow!

Coming Soon

It’s time for a rainbow-filled Pride post! I have a bunch of awesome and bright free Pride finds to share with you all today. This look may be a wee bit bright for some folks, but I’m soaking it up. Feel the rainbow! 🌈

The Look

  • First off, this amazing romper is a free group gift at [WellMade]. It comes in five fab pride rainbow patterns. It fits Lara, Freya, Petite, Hourglass, Perky, Legacy, Kupra & Kups.
  • The pretty hearts on my cheeks are the latest free gift for all at Izzie’s. The gift includes Pride hearts in many variations ( bisexual, transgender, gay, etc.). I am wearing the “progress” hearts. Love it! ❤ All the different options come in BOM layers for LAQ, Genus, Catwa, Lelutka Evo and Lelutka EvoX heads. You can also grab this gift on the Marketplace if you don’t want to head to the store.
  • My rainbow ripped stockings are a free gift at Psycho Barbie available for a limited time until June 30th. These stockings come in 2 options: plain rainbow and rainbow and black. These stockings are BOM only so they work with any bakes-on-mesh enabled mesh body. You can’t see the top of them in my photo, but they say Love Wins
  • Finally, my pride popsicle stick is a free group gift at Bad Unicorn. This little pop is so cute, and it’s a brand new gift! Make sure to collect all the other free gifts at Bad Unicorn when you stop by.

See you soon, FabFree! 🏳️‍🌈

Jurassic Worlds

Coming Soon

I am all about the fandoms and blockbuster franchises today. You may remember my rantings about the Peter Pan universe earlier this morning. As it turns out, I am a way bigger nerd and enjoy more fandoms than just Harry Potter, which I have blogged about many times in the past. Well, this posts’ obsession is Jurassic Park! I’m actually going to head out to enjoy the latest Jurassic World: Dominion movie later tonight for the big date night of the week! For some reason, this scene Caroline is in reminds me of that universe, but it’s too bad I didn’t have any scary dinos backing me up. Hopefully, I can do a scary post one day with them, although the way I pictured my SL photography and dinosaurs is that they would look too cute to look like they are ready to eat humans. SL just has a way of making all creatures seem adorable. Anyways… let’s just say my brain is on all things related to Raptors, T-Rexes, and rocky parks with waterfalls because I just had a Jurassic Park movie marathon this week.

Yaina

Ok, enough about dinosaurs! Time to get to the gifts! Faga has this beautiful hair out as a free group gift. You are looking for the “Exclusive Pack Gift” sign under the Yaina hair vendor. Their group is temporarily free to join. It includes a nice little colour hud as well.

Eden

The cute Golden Zebra print “Eden Sandals” I have on are the latest group gift at Starlight Apparel. Just join the ~* Mandilena Creations *~ group for 25L and grab the huge wall of gifts at the store while you’re at it. 

Sizes Included

  • Slink
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

A Dome for the Ages

The last find I have to share today is what I used to create my scene for my photo today. This is one scene you can create from the skydome by Anna Erotica. You will find it for only 10L on the Marketplace. This is a huge skydome that allows you to change the colours of the sky and ground by touching it, and it is only 11 prims. The item does not have modify permissions, although many of their other products do. I absolutely love this creator. In fact, I live in one of their massive 15 prim “Palm Beach” skyboxes most of the time and it takes up virtually no space in my prim allotment. Their stuff is so low prim and afordable! I love the textures, scenes, and skies in their builds. For example, they have a 1 prim skybox home for only 1L here which is spacious, and it includes full modify permissions. You can find more 75L and under on their Marketplace here. Be warned that this is an adult store, so you will come across adult items in their shop if you explore further, but in this post, I have only linked general-rated items.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Who am I to Diss a Brie?

Who am I to Diss a Brie?

There’s nothing I love more than a good cheese joke.  And I’m being 100% serious about that.  Cheese is both my absolute favourite thing ever, and also my go-to for jokes.  I even have a pin on one of my jackets in RL that says “cheezie for life” in the shape of a cheezie.  I don’t know what that says about me, but you know I mean business when it comes to cheese references.  So… I had to have it.

First Things First

Before I get deep into the cheese, you need to know that the School Day event has recently kicked off, and it’s got plenty of free gifts for members of their free-to-join group.  You’ll find lots of cute accessories at this event, most of them themed around school.  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE hairpin by C’est La Vie
  • FREE sakura earrings by K.Closet
  • FREE bento nails by Kiu rigged for Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE poses by Versuta with 5 poses in the box

Just visit each stall and click on the gift boxes, there’s a lot more!  School Day is Running until July 6th

Cheesy Does it Now

Ok so this awesome top couldn’t brie better.  The other day, members of the FabFree inworld group mentioned it and I just haaaad to have it.  I suggest you cheese the day and head off to MP as quick as your legs can carry you (err..mouse can carry you?) to grab this 2L top by Mermaid Farts.  It’s actually our own chat mod Lil’s little shop, so you’re sure to be feeding her massive collection of pets with every purchase.  Ha.  You’re awesome Lil!  This top is fitted exclusively for Maitreya.  You feta get outta here and go get it!

Call me in queso emergency…

Housewarming

Housewarming
I just grabbed one of the “Stilt” Linden homes yesterday, so I am playing around with how I can decorate the front dock. Time for a little housewarming party to serve guests with drinks and appetizers!

Group Gift Run!

Near the end of every month, I collect group gifts from the groups I am a member of. I am featuring a couple the gifts that I collected this month, including:

  • The cute blue “shark week” bra, which is the current group gift at Paper.Sparrow. The bra fits Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Petite mesh bodies. The Paper.Sparrow group costs 25L to join, and you get lots of perks including regular gifts and 50L store credit every month.
  • Secondly, the incredibly detailed bread board with that crusty cheesy Italian white bread with a knife on it is the most recent group gift at Noveny. The Noveny group costs 30L to join.

Put Your Hair Up

Lastly, my cute hairstyle is only 5 linden on the Marketplace. This is one of the deals from Emo-tions. I’m wearing the hair-only version which includes a fatpack of colors, but you can also wear it with a monocle and hat. It’s worth getting, and it has a cute bun done up at the back of the hairstyle.
Housewarming II
Enjoy, FabFree!
