No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Break from Beaudelaire

A Break from Beaudelaire

I’m feeling a bit collegiate today.  Perhaps the changing leaves are bringing me back to days spent in the quad with piles of books and a mug of Earl Grey tea, the library not too far off as I delved into tomes of Beaudelaire and Dante.  I think that this precise moment is the one where you have had just about enough of deciphering the depths of literature, and you just need to let go for a little while.  I think that moment came pretty often for me!

500 is an Excellent Sum

Blueberry are at it again!  This time, they’re showering their group members with 500L in store credit.  How nice is that?  You can use it to buy anything you like in the store, and the entire store is 50% off until the 14th.  I picked up the Blessed jacket, skirt and top which were just 125L each, leaving me a bit of coin left over for something else.  You can get your own store credit by joining the Blueberry group for 20L, then peeking in group notices.  Once you add the HUD and click, the store credit will be added to your account and you can buy what you like in store.   Yay!

Autumn Leaves and Pumpkins Please

Autumn Leaves and Pumpkins Please

I’m totally living my pumpkin fantasy today.  Or you know, Autumn/Fall… no pumpkins in sight, but I do love me a good pumpkin.  Anyway, I’m crunching my way through the Fall landscape, the fresh air blowing through my hair, my boots all perfect n stuff, and a brand new coat to complete the scene.  I think the next stop is somewhere to get a hot drink!

Happy Anniversary!

Tachinni is celebrating 3 glorious years on the grid!  With that they’re giving group members 400L in store credit which you can spend on anything  you so desire in their lovely shop – the group is only 15L to join!  I bought the very classic Olivia coat (the mock-turtleneck underneath is included!), which really had me ready for the cool breezes that have been wafting my way recently.   It only cost 299L so I still have a bit of credit left to put towards another purchase.  The credit expires on October 12th, so make sure you use it soon and don’t forget about it!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Before the Sun Sets

Before the Sun Sets

Okay, this is going to be a fast one, Fab-ers! Fast because the Wanderlust Weekend sale only lasts till midnight tonight!

My awesome new leather jacket and shirt are just 50L until midnight SLT tonight over at Petite Mort!  ((Sometimes merchants leave the items out longer. Don’t count on it though!!))The jacket and shirt are separate pieces and it comes with a HUD to pick one of twenty colors/patterns for the shirt. The shirt, however couldn’t really be worn on it’s own. This just gave me such a western vibe I had to grab my hat and boots and head out for a ride with Jack. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass

Now my closet is full of jeans but not many BOM jeans or appliers and this shirt with the untucked side needs it. So I hopped on to the MarketPlace and found these great applier/BOM jeans from Delizio. And the kicker… they’re free!  You get Maitreya and Omega appliers plus the System layer for BOM in eight different colors. That’s quite a pack for free!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Applier
  • Omega Applier
  • System Layer BOM

On the Hunt

On the Hunt

Good evening, FabFree Readers. This is a good tie to be a ‘Man about The Grid’. There are plenty of hunts, Gachas and events going on right now to make one feel almost spoiled by choice.  In fact, the Men Only Hunt is so large this round that I’m still unpacking all of the gifts! While there are still quite a few items I personally don’t… appreciate… (Juli insists I be nice) I cast no judgment on the tastes of others. As Juli says, “You do you, boo.” Which is an eccentric way of saying this hunt has something for everyone. That said, my complete outfit including the new hair style is all 100% free and up for grabs on The Men Only Hunt.

First is the “Reed” cardigan and shirt set from Ascend. The thick comfortable sweater comes in the shown shades of blue but a HUD will give you six colors of shirts and ties to choose from. The shirt and tie themselves can be turned off if you prefer to wear just the cardigan. They, however are not wearable by themselves. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy – Athletic, Legacy
  • Siganature – Gianni

The jeans are from Cheerno and are also a hunt gift. The ‘S21 Jeans’ are waiting for you to find. They are well made and are a solid addition to my wardrobe. 

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic – Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legancy
  • Signature Gianni

Last but not least is my new hair style from Volt Hair. This is a New-to-Me designer that I am happy to have ‘discovered’. Volt does both men’s and ladies hair and has an extensive collection of both. I found the hair to be very well designed and easy to wear. The hair is unrigged and comes with a resizer. Plus, you will receive the entire fatpack in this prize.

A quick note on the Hunt. While you are not required to get the HUD with all of the SLurls loaded, I did find it makes the hunt much easier. There isn’t a page with the hints or the SLurls available online. You will need to join the Hunt’s group but that is free as well.  The pick up for the HUD is here.

Play a Little Game

Play a Little Game

Good evening, FabFree! It’s almost Friday! Almost the weekend! Hang in there, we can do this. And to help us along, I’ve tracked down a super cute casual outfit that won’t break the bank from the UP Event.

Fraia Fashion is just one of several gift givers for the event. This cute jacket and mini skirt set, “Ariel”, is set out for us at only 10L. You get the jacket and skirt as two pieces and even two separate HUDs to pick your colors. I love it when a designer makes it so easy to mi and match with other items we may have in our wardrobes. Oh, and look at that popped collar, so cute!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink -Hourglass, Physique

I’m also wearing a nifty new necklace which is a free gift at the UP Event. Zola Designs has set out this sweet summery “Sun Necklace” for us this round. The necklace comes with the gold and diamond I’m wearing and a silver and ruby version.  I think it’s going to be a go to in my closet.

The UP Event runs until August 15th so don’t waste any time!

Something Simple

Something Simple

Good evening, FabFree Readers. If your mood has been anything like Julianna’s these last few days, you’ve been running around madly trying to scoop all the gifts and prizes and shopping all day.  I do suppose that one thing about being a guy on the Grid… I can take it in a bit more relaxing attitude.  And I am all about relaxing. I did go over to BoHo Soul this weekend to pick up the very nice prize for the gentlemen for the FabFree Enchanted Hunt. So a special ‘Thank You’ to Maya for remembering us guys.

This is the ‘Enchanted Forest Men’s Hoodie’ in my favorite color : forest green. Appropriate, no? The hoodie is very well designed and fits like a dream. I truly appreciate the excellent work that obviously went into it. It’s the perfect gear for an early morning walk when you want something to take the chill off. 

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd but with awesome prizes like this… why delay?

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • SLink Male
  • Signature – Gianni

A little hope

A little hope

Hey FabFree! Welcome to Friday our wonderful gateway to the weekend. Our time to relax, revive and have some fun!

In a clumsy segue here…  Let’s talk about time. Time on the Grid is such a weird thing. Shops come and go, designers are stars, then disappear. Real Life takes over and makes the most active players suddenly vanish. It’s sad. especially when a truly talented designer leaves Grid. Where am I going with this… well, I was just rambling around the Grid when I stumbled on a Designer who was new to me but at the same time… is closing their store. 

Rebel Hope is holding a final sale with everything in their store up to 75% off. Awesome for my closet but sad for us because this is a really wonderful designer with a shop full of great clothes and shoes. Now, I don’t know how long the sale has been going on or how long it will last. The Rebel Hope blog is down but their Marketplace is up and active. So if you want a nice selection of really lovely clothes at amazing prices head over to the Rebel Hope main store and shop your heart out.

My Rebel Hope Outfit – Havana Floral Top and Skirt – These are separate pieces for mixing and matching. Each piece comes with a HUD to pick one of eight colors and patterns. There is also a pantie on/off switch with the skirt. Each piece is only 57L each. In fact, I didn’t find anything priced over 73L in the store.

Rainbow Connection

Pride @ Home

I love rainbows (and anything sparkly!) and so I enjoy all the colors associated with the Pride @ Home Event!  I also love how the colors stand for all of us in harmony, side by side and looking beautiful each in our own way!  What color would you be?  I’d like to be pink but that’s not a rainbow color… (alas!) so I will choose my second favorite which would be purple. 🙂

I also notice that Indigo is missing from all the rainbows in my pic.  But that’s just me being a perfectionist and a PITA, so lets just move on to our freebies shall we?

Rainbow Connection

One of my very favorite songs ever is The Rainbow Connection, originally sang by Kermit in The Muppet Movie (back when the muppets were the muppets!  But I digress!), it’s also sort of my life theme.  My favorite version of it besides the original was done by the Dixie Chicks (now known only as The Chicks.  sigh.) and I love to sing along.  Just a great song!

I picked up all these very pretty rainbow-y goodies at the Pride @ Home Event, which was so much fun!  Lots of freebies, a colorful parade and just a really great time to be had!  Everything I am showcasing here is absolutely free, no group required.

My jacket and top are from 28LA, they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

They are also *unisex* and come in Jake and Gianni for the guys!!

These cute pants (I love them!) are from LRD and they fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

My hair is from KMH, you can see how it looks on Aline here.

Lastly but not leastly…. my necklace is from NaaNaas.

Yup, all free gifties!  Enjoy!!!
