End of Summer

Hello FabFree!

End of Summer

Summer is winding down now but the days are still hot and I don’t want to wear anything but cool shorts and tops. But you still want to start wearing those soft rustic shades of Fall. That’s why the “Indian Summer” hunt from Ghee is the perfect answer. Ms. Love mentioned this hunt in her post here so I had to go check it out. And I was not disappointed.  You’ll find thirty nine little spice jars hidden all over priced at 10L to 25L.  Now the jars are not numbered but each one is named for a different spice so we can keep track of them. You’ll find tops, dresses, shoes, shorts, jewelry and accessories all in one of three end-of-summer shades.

I picked the “lace trim belted shorts” in ivory and paired them with the ‘Indian Summer blouse’ in taupe and the ‘Indian Summer’ sandals in ivory. The “Swirl” necklace and earrings also come in ivory, taupe and chilli ( a soft rusty red)

The clothing pieces come in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and several pieces come with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink. The sandals all are for SLink flat feet.

You can fill up your spice cabinet and your wardrobe at the Indian Summer Hunt until September 2nd!

Blooming

Hey there FabFree!

Blooming

I’ve got a quick one for you today as our time for the August Hunts draws near to a close.  I found this super cute little sundress. ‘Bloom’ from Lomo by [ IBAN ] on the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I wasn’t expecting to find much for me on this hunt as I don’t use the mesh body but Lomo has included a standard FitMesh and Alpha layerfor this gift as well as appliers for SLink, Maitreya, TMP and Hourglass. I love the delicate lacy look and it seems perfect for the warm end of summer days.

The Addicted to Appliers Hunt runs until August 31st so don’t delay!

Orangutan

Orangutan Baby I got a baby orangutan! hahaha I think this sweet little girl is too cute for words. I named her Princess Mombi but you can name yours anything you like. These adorable little orangutan babies are available at the current round of N21 from Black Bantam. These hold-able pets are 75 lindens per play and come in a few color variations. Upon receiving your orangutan you’ll know by clicking on him/her whether you adopted a boy or a girl. There are lots of fun ways to interact with your orangutan baby via the touch menu such as cuddling or kisses. Once you choose an action you’ll see an emote come up in local chat. Also, since these little babies are gachas so you can trade and collect them. Stop by N21 and get yours!
Pumpkin SpiceNext up, gO! has a new group gift out, and as always it’s beautiful! The colors in this halter style, hi-lo dress remind me of the coming fall season. I instantly thought of yummy pumpkin spice lattes and pretty fall leaves. The Olga dress comes in standard mesh size options, as well as Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. This gift is FREE to all gO! group members, and the gO! group has a one-time join fee of 50 lindens. I think this pretty dress is well worth the fee!

Finally, I picked up these classic pumps at Empire. They are one of the current FREE Lucky Letter prizes in an exclusive coral shade. You’ll still be able to change the color of the shoe sole using the standard Empire hud included. They come in a Maitreya Lara fit, Slink fit, Belleza fit, and a TMP fit. To get these pretty pumps head to the second floor of the Empire store, and join the Empire Updates group. The Empire Updates group is FREE to join, and is separate from the Empire VIP group.

***I’d also like to note that I’m noticing the windlight setting I used is making everything, including the dress, shoes, and the skin Pru is wearing appear a shade darker than they actually are. Please keep that in mind should you decide to pick them up. 

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mrs. B’s Designs closing sale :(

Hey FabFree.

MsB's

I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world.  But, happily, it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L.  The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.

I hate to see Ms B’s Design close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Summer Classic

Greetings FabFree,

Summer Classic

In the spirit of the long hot end of summer days, I have donned a classic summer look today. This white linin looking jacket is the free gift from Gabriel for the L’Homme readers. The jacket is paired with an attached white tee shirt to keep it from looking stodgy. The mesh jacket comes in one size with a good alpha and I found the fit to be perfect.

I also added the ‘Rock Star’ necklace from The Forge which I first showed you here. Happily, the free gift is still available if you missed it last month. As always, L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know?🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

Late Afternoon

I just dropping in to show off a couple of fresh finds for us.  I’m still opening boxes and bags from the Women’s Stuff Hunt and when I opened this super cute top from Tin Roof, I knew I had to show y’all. This is the ‘Daisies’ top and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. Daisies comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and FitMesh for SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and TMP.  The rusty red is an exclusive color for this top only for the Women’s Stuff Hunt!

My skirt is a free Group Gift from a ‘New To Me’ designer -> Egoxentrikax.  This is the ‘Pao’ skirt and it’s the current free group gift in the main shop. Pao comes in FitMesh sizes XXS-XXL as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink.  If beige isn’t your color, the gift also includes this skirt in a denim blue.
