Uber Girly

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulouses!  Boy am I feeling fine and flirty today, in my new floral romper, just laying under the sun enjoying the birds sing to me.  This one piece item had a bit of a vintage look to it in my opinion, so I tossed on my pink Platform Maryjanes by Livalle and braided my hair for an uber girly ensemble.

The Light In The Dark

This sweet summery find is ironically available at The Dark Side 2 Fashion Fair on the floor of the MOoH! shop, priced at just 10L!  It may be located on the dark side… but it’s definitely of light!  The Tina Romper comes in tons of fits for your body and also includes a texture change HUD for an extra colour option in pink floral too.  I am including the vendor ad below so you can see both texture options 🙂

We Are Family

We Are Family

fam(ə)lē

A family is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. And the family I have here at FabFree is united together to bring you the best in free and inexpensive items for all of you on a budget (or if you just like good deals)! We often pass information to each other about the things we’ve seen that my be more someone else’s style than our own… (you won’t ever see me in a skirt and heels). 😃 My fellow bloggers and a few of my friends that point me in the way of sweet deals are my SL family. A guy couldn’t be more lucky!

I’ve been framed!

I’ve taken the time to frame my family (now I sound like a mobster) and honor them as they should be. I found while hunting on the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 the Hall of Fame Family Photo Frame at unmisTakAble Weddings. The gifts on this hunt are just $1L each. Hopefully you have a family as big as mine to frame as well.

Being picked on for sport…

And with any family, there is always teasing back and forth. I usually come out on the short end of the stick.😣 My sporty casual look for a Sunday can both be found at the Wash Cart Sale. At the K&A Design cart, I found both the Sports Tee Shirt and Sport Pants both for just $10L each.

And now it is time for me to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. I worked way too hard doing yard work yesterday…

I’m No Angel

I'm no Angel

Fatal Mistake…

Someone made a BIG mistake. I can deal with the fact that I died, but, REALLY? I should have horns and sitting in a fire pit, right?

There is a “heavenly” deal on the Marketplace. You can pick up a FREE set of Angel Wings And Halo from T.J Store. The wings can be resized by simply touching them.

I think I’m gonna fly up and talk to the “Big Guy” and get this straightened out…

The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

Snapshot_004Good morning SLovers 🙂

On a budget, but in need of something new and shiny to dangle in front of your partner?  Lingerie can be really expensive in Second Life…  but if you know where to go, you’ll find some really nice sets at affordable prices or in some cases, even free!

Sn@tch… It Fits The Bill

The new 21 piece 7Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch called “In The Moulin Rouge” sure fits the bill, and you can pick it up for free if you own a casual 7Seas Fishing Rod!  In my photo above I am wearing several of the pieces such as the Moulin Rouge Bodysuit, Simone Corset, Francine Latex Gloves and Anastasia Choker, but as you can see from the vendor ad below, the pond is stuffed with pieces to reel in on your rod!  As always, no bait is required!~

Evil Bunny

Evil Bunny

I’ve been a Naughty Bunny…

…or I want to be. I found the Jimmy Boxer Briefs at Firelight Creations & Manstuff as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt 7. You can choose to be a nice bunny with a halo or an evil bunny, like me, with the horns. There are nice and naughty eggs to be picked up along the path. So hop your way down the evil (or nice) bunny trail and pick up your $1L Easter treats.

It’s Always Sunny in Second Life

Sunny in SLHave Pool Will Travel 

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad it’s the weekend. I plan to spend the whole weekend in this cute little inflatable pool. This fun Marketplace Freebie is wearable and animated, so you can lounge in the pool any time any place! The pool’s creator is June Trenkins of JT, and she thoughtfully included the beach ball, and butterfly in this animated item.  Get your copy of this fun FREE wading pool on the Marketplace.

Always Sunny

Good Day Sunshine

I suppose you could wear whatever you wanted or nothing at all if you’re so inclined to wade in the pool. I decided to take advantage of the most recent Fab Free Group Gift at Brandy’s Boutique and relax in style! This applier bikini includes classic system layers, and a flexy add on for the bikini top (not shown). You can pick up this FREE Fab Free exclusive gift by wearing your Fab Free group tag and heading over to Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll find the Fab Free gift vendor on the wall opposite the circulation desk. Pay the gift vendor 1 linden then you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden and your gift will be delivered.

Appliers included:

  • Belleza
  • Lena
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Show Some Skin

One of the best things about a bikini for a tattoo lover like myself is the ability to show off your tattoos! I picked up this beautiful full body tattoo on the Marketplace from a shop called Natti for just 50 lindens. The tattoo includes appliers and classic tattoo layers in 4 tones. These mandala/paisley type shapes and swirls always make me think of summer!

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega

Summer Hair 

Earlier today Clawtooth put out this FREE gift for everyone as an April Fools gift, with no fooling. This cute swing bob hairstyle comes with the magic tones color change hud. There are several bright gorgeous colors to choose from. This FREE gift will be available through the end of the day on April 2, so don’t wait!
