Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

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

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Saved By the Bell

18-01-09

And the bell rings…

After a few false starts, I’m FINALLY back to work, providing the weather doesn’t take another nasty turn today. I was starting to go a bit stir crazy being trapped in the house with the horrible winter weather outside.  It is also nice to be back in my professional attire. I’m not saying my jammies pants weren’t comfortable, but dressing like an adult again feels good. It seems most of my work attire is a bit snug fitting after the holidays. I’m thinking they must have shrunk. It’s a good thing I happened upon the FREE All ‘stuff Hunt gift at AdReNaLiZeD. The Striker Black and Blue Suit is made in classic sizes XS-XL. I think I look very dapper for my first day back. I’m sure I’ll look frazzled by the end of the day.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/05/2018 – Liquid

Liquid Front Entrance
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m bringing this Fabulous Friday to a close with the Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week I have the pleasure of featuring a little shop called Liquid. As far as I am aware, Liquid is a fairly recent shop in Second Life. Their products are mostly mesh and applier eyes, makeup, and some tattoos.  While these items are predominately for the females, there are also products for the gents, and even some unisex finds. Generally speaking the appliers sold at Liquid are meant for Catwa or Lelutka head users, but I’d keep an eye out for more offerings in the future. That’s not an insider hint, just a personal opinion. One of the things I really like about Liquid is that it is a very well organized, easy-to-shop-at store. Also, all the information about Liquid, including events and group gifts can be found all in the same spot just as you enter the store.
Liquid Desk close up
As I said, everything you could need, the group joiner, subscriber, event information, it’s all right here at the desk as you enter Liquid. This is also where you’ll find the group gifts Liquid currently has to offer. To the left is the Liquid group gift, a gorgeous lipstick applier. You’ll need to join the Liquid VIP group to grab this gift, which is currently FREE to join. To the right I’m sure you recognized the Fabulously Free in SL group joiner. Those lovely blue eyes are an exclusive gift for Fab Free group members. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag! Also, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you the Fab Free group is FREE to join. The Fab Free gift is a good example of one of the unisex items at Liquid. Don’t miss out on these pretty freebies! Happy shopping Fab Free’rs.

New Year New Everything

New Year New Everything
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a new year, so why not make everything new?!  Recently I posted about new skins and even some lingerie. Today I’m having fun with some furry new friends, a cute new outfit, and a brand new space to call home. Keep reading to find out the how and where you can get each of these FREE or inexpensive items. First, let’s talk about these adorable fur babies!

Puppies!

The adorable little guy on the cushion is not only as cute as he can be, he’s also completely FREE. You can pick this little guy up at Japonica, he is a FREE gift from TLC Animated Animals. Part of what makes him (or her!) so adorable is that he is animated. This little puppy wags his tail and moves his head. There are also little particle feathers that come up out of the cushion where the little rascal tore it. To take him home all you need to do is purchase the box for zero linden from the TLC shop at Japonica.

The second equally adorable puppy in my arms is also at Japonica. There several variations of this furry friend by Who What, each wearing a pretty little kimono. These pups are a gacha item, the one I have is called “Friday” and is one of the common gacha prizes from the Who What gacha at Japonica. This sweet puppy has the hold animation shown (the ground sit is part of Pru’s AO) as well as a typing animation. When you type in local chat the pose will change so that you are holding your puppy and vertically instead of horizontally and cute hearts and butterfly particles are emitted. To get your sweet kimono wearing pup just play the Who What gacha for 48 linden per play.

MOoH!

If you haven’t checked out the more recent Fab Free group gift listing, you should. This sweater and leggings combo is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoh. It’s the kind of outfit that can be perfect for a lazy casual day or be dressed up for a comfortable yet put together look. The outfit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the sweater. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, if you’re not already a member.

Kraftwork

Did you happen to notice the gorgeous textures in the room Pru’s sitting in? This photo is a narrow view of the studio apartment style skybox group gift at Kraftwork. This one room skybox is beautifully textured and comes in a “daylight” and a “moonlight” version. The shades and hues are slightly different depending on which version you use. I chose the daylight version, and the appearance of light through the windows is from the windlight settings I used. I love the added illusion of an exterior treeline through the windows. To get your copy of these pretty little skyboxes just join the Kraftwork group and click the group gift vendor near the landing point. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/29/2017 – Loordes of London

Loordes of London Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! This week seemed to fly by, maybe it’s all that Christmas cheer. This weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Loordes of London. At this shop you’ll find a lot of everything from jewelry and shoes to dresses and sweaters. Most of the items are fully mesh and both priced and styled well. The style is what I would call classic. There is a lot of attention to detail in the items at Loordes of London.
Loordes of London Events & Info
As you enter the Loordes of London store, you’ll see the desk with the usual information including the group joiner, and a Marketplace link. There’s also a little pink package on the desk that says it’s the January gift at Loordes of London. You can pick it up for just 10 linden. Also, I thought I’d let you know that I did notice several hunt items just waiting to be found as I browsed the shop. In the same section of the store as the circulation desk is a long wall of events, group affiliations, and hunts. In the same area is also where you can pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift from Loordes of London. Just wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already in the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join. As if that wasn’t motivation enough, the Loordes of London shop has 3 wings and 2 stories full of fashion to explore.

Surf’s Up

Snapshot_008

I need a warm weather break…

I am already sick of the cold and snow and it isn’t even January yet. It’s time for some fun in the sun, even if it is virtually. I headed out to Mauna Lani Surfing Beach to catch a few waves and enjoy the sunshine and the surf. There was even a parrot perched on the lifeguard chair, but flew away before I could snap a shot. Just my luck…

Hanging Ten…

Today’s offering is a Mini Mania Board item from Emerald Couture. Every five clicks pays out the Blue Sea Beach Trunks, which come ins standard sizes XS-XL. There is also a board for women and lots of lucky chairs to win prizes too! It’s worth the stop to check out. My Aviator Shades are one of several FREE group gift on the wall at Rebellion. Accessorize yourself in style with the group gifts found here. The Rebellion group is FREE to join and there are also group lucky boards at the store to win prizes from. My surf pose is a gacha find from Le Poppycock. Hang Ten is one of the many poses in the Surf’s Up series and each can be had for just 50L a pull.

That’s my wave, brah. Later Dude!

Colder Than a Brass Toilet Seat in the Yukon

12-28-2017
…And that’s pretty darn cold

An arctic blast found it’s way to my part of the world this week and I have been experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the past few days.  I’ve done my best to stay inside, but there are times you just have to go out and brave the elements. I’m just glad my dog isn’t a fan of the cold either…

Wrap up and put a lid on it…

Today’s look is a mix of various gifts that are still available as of this posting. The David Sweatshirt by etham is a FREE gift at the Shop & Hop Sale and I was told it would be available until the end of the month. The sweatshirt comes with a texture HUD for different colors and comes fitted for the following body types:

  • Belleza
  • NX-Nardcotix
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Standard
  • TMP

TheWinter Holiday Scarf is the current group gift at ::K::. This scarf comes rigged in both men’s and women’s sizes and adds color to any look. The ::K:: group is FREE to join. And to top it off, (pun intended) I found the Wish Newsboy Cap by Couture Chapeau as a FREE gift to members of The Menstuff Lounge. The cap includes a sizer to get the proper fit. The Menstuff group does have a 50L join fee for non members.

Now… could someone please throw another log or five on the fire? I’m FREEZING!!!

To All a Good Night

To All A Good Night
Happy Holidays Fab Free! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and joy. For today’s post I did a little “shopping” for myself. Actually, I did some gacha-ing. I sat at my home and Pocket Gacha’d until my little heart was content. I have to admit, it was content rather sooner than I would have liked. My linden wallet is quite thin! lol Still, I had lots of fun using the FREE Pocket Gacha HUD without having to go anywhere. I had such fun in fact that I wanted to share my experience with you, and show off the equally fun items I gatcha’d.

e.Marie

I adore over-the-knee socks. These pretty striped socks are from the e.Marie items within the Pocket Gacha this round. There are tons of fun socks, some holiday themed, some not. I lucked out and got one of the Rare sets. This set included a color change hud with several preset options, and optional twinkle lights. The lights have their own hud as well. Also, this is important, you’ll want to make sure that you’re looking at the e.Marie gacha key for your body. Pru wears Maitreya Lara, so I had to be sure to play the “Lara” key for the e.Marie gachas. If that sounds confusing, I promise it is easy, you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the gacha keys on the hud. These cute socks by e.Marie are just 50 linden per play.

Sizes Available: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis)

Cubic Cherry

It just so happens that the Cubic Cherry sweaters have the possibility of matching quite nicely with the e.Marie socks. These cute fluffy sweaters are just 75 linden per pay. There are tons of commons and a few cute Rares to be had. These are sized for Maitreya Lara wearers only.  Again I felt lucky when I pulled this cute unicorn common from the Cubic Cherry gacha key inside the Pocket Gacha hud. I love unicorns, and this sweater says “99% Unicorn” across the front.

Size Available: Maitreya Lara Only

99 Percent Unicorn
LOTUS

These deep brown eyes are from the Pocket Gacha by LOTUS. Every once in a while I like to change things up and wear eyes that are different from the ones I usually wear. I love the details in these dark eyes by LOTUS. They are also very similar to the color of my own eye in RL. The mesh eyes come with resize scripts, and there is a Catwa applier for the Catwa mesh eyes. The LOTUS Pocket Gacha is just 60 linden per play and there are 15 pretty earth toned commons, and 2 hauntingly pretty Rares.

Essences

I love it when Essences participates in events and things like Pocket Gacha. For this round of Pocket Gacha, Essences has a full set of  Catwa head appliers. There are 10 commons, in the Pale02, Dark01, and Dark02 tones, along with 2 Rares, one Medium02, and the other Pale01. Body Appliers are not included, but can be purchased at the Essences main store. This set of pretty faces is called Lydia, and she’s just 58 linden per play.

P.S. You can also pick up a Pocket Gacha hud at most (if not all) participating stores.

Here are the details, Merry Christmas, and Happy Gacha-ing!!

Waiting for Christmas…

Only in My Socks_001

Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!
