my mother told me son let it be

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

The PINK Season is coming

The Pink Season is coming

Hey there, Fab Free! Can you believe the week is nearly over??? Another day and it’s the weekend already! I guess it’s a good thing but dang! Anyway, time and January is apparently going to speed by and before we know it it’ll be hearts and kisses and PINK everywhere. 

I guess I have some pink on the brain cause when I tried on this latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from MOoh I had to have the pink shirt instead of any of the other colors. So, this is the “Mariah” outfit and it’s the gift I’m talking about. You can pick it up for free when you wear your free FabFree Group tag and slap that board. Mariah comes with the jacket/shirt combo and the skirt as separates which is always nice. The denim part has a HUD for two colors: blue and black while the HUD has seven solid colors and five stripy colors for the shirt. I still am enjoying my Winter but this might have me thinking about Spring.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Life in a Snow Globe

Life in a Snow Globe

Did you know that the Christmas season isn’t actually over yet?  Today is only the 10th day of Christmas, which means that there’s plenty of time for celebrating still.  I’m still busy reveling until the 6th, and I hope you will too.

Epiphany

Ashmoot are taking part in one of my favourite traditions – and that’s giving gifts for Epiphany!  When I was young, I’d always check in my stocking on January 6th to see if it had been filled!  You don’t have to wait til the 6th for the gifts at Ashmoot, you’ll find them all under the tree.  I clicked on the boxes and picked up the shorts for 10L, jacket for 20L and the little furry pompom earrings were free.  There are a few other goodies there too while you’re at it.  It all goes away on the 6th though!

Sizes

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

Having a Snow-ball

I’ve often heard people ask if there are affordable ways to have a place to live in Second Life.  Rent can add up, and when you’re working on a budget it’s always nice to find somewhere that doesn’t break the bank.  If that place is really beautiful as well, then even better!  The Snow Globe sim aims to create a fun community living experience in SL, on an affordable scale.   You can actually get a home with 300 prims for FREE if you become an active member in their community.  That means taking part in events such as bowling, movies, game nights and more.   If you’re not so much into participating, you can still call Snow Globe home for 10L per week and 75 prims allotted to you.  Sound good?  Well head on over to the rental office HERE for further details!

Happy (still) Christmas!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.

Hey there, Fab Fam! It’s Christmas Eve Eve and I’m so wrapped up in the Christmas spirit! All my gifts are wrapped up under our little tree, there’s hot chocolate on the stove, and Christmas music on the radio. One of my favorite things about this season is going to see friends and family and bringing gifts and snacks and indulging in the best gift of all – People I dearly love.

One thing you need for all the visits is something cute and cozy and full of the holiday spirit. S@bbia has me covered this year with the “Chester Coat and Skirt Set”. You get the whole outfit for free when you were the S@bbia group tag. Yep, even the snazzy red boots! Plus, the group is free to join. The outfit is truly a ‘one and done’ as the coat, sweater and cutie skirt are one piece. The knit textured boots are separate.

Wintry Fun Deals (and more snowball fights!)

snowball fight

Hey gang!

I’m still out here being the trouble maker that I am.  Mainly because I found *the* most funnest (its a word!!!!!  lol) thing ever!  Fluffy Stuff has, well, basically a snowball fight that you can buy and it’s still on sale from SoKawaii Sunday yesterday for only 65L!  Not only does it give you some cute poses, but when you go into mouselook and aim, you can throw snowballs at things and people and anything!  There was no one around so Santa got hit quite a few times.  I really got sidetracked playing with this.  Lots of fun!

I’ve also still been stalking The Arcade, where I got another pair of these super cute fluffy boots from Gild (mens and women sizes, one size fits each) for only 50L a play and also this awesome jacket and leggings by Amias, which is 75L a play.  I’m wearing the Maitreya size.

Again, time sensitive so I can get y’all that awesome sale at Fluffy Stuff.  Not sure how long it will be up for though, so if you want some wintery fun (it really is!) run over and grab this while it’s on sale!

Grandma’s been staring through the window ever since it started to snow…
If it gets any worse I’ll have to let her in.

Hey Gang!

Yeah I’m starting off with a bad snow joke, and that’s snow joke!  So Jacx was talking about a snowball fight the other day in her post and I’ve decided to take her up on her offer.  I’m not sure she knows what she has gotten herself into though.  I am *very* competitive!  I also have the same set of poses from Fashiowl from Shop & Hop (free), so I am armed and ready to go too!  (I can’t throw snowballs without arms, you know!)

I’ve put together an eclectic combo of an outfit for the fight, me and cold aren’t the best of buddies (despite my Elsa obsession!), and so whatever I can throw together that keeps me warmest, gosh-darnit, that’s what I’m gonna wear when it’s cold!

Freebies, Freebies and More Freebies! (and maybe a couple of great deals for good measure!)

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the free mesh heads from Lelutka this past week, I have the *worst* luck trying to get into crowded places like that and I feel like I am always the last to grab anything that there is a big rush for.  Nonetheless, I am sporting the brand spankin’ new Kaya head which is a free group gift (free group join) from Lelutka.  (There’s one for the guys as well!)  My skin is also a freebie, it is a group gift from Koonz.  Their group is free to join.

Usually I use my own shape, but I really liked the free shape for Kaya by Wren’s Nest.  It is a free group gift and the group is temporarily free to join.  Her shapes are really nice.

This awesome Santa style jacket is from Gabriel and you can get it for men and women both at their store for only 50L.  It’s super warm for snowball fights too!  For women this fits Maitreya and Legacy.  It does come with the option of a shirt underneath too.

I am absolutely enamored with my fluffy boots, they are from Gild at The Arcade.  They have all the colors you can wish for of fur boots and the machine is 50L a play.  They have them for both men and women.

Finally, my hair and hat is a Fifty Lindens Friday pick from Wasabi, I just checked and she still has it up, but not sure how long it will be up for!

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

Good evening, Fabulously Free. It is certainly very wintery here in my part of the real world tonight. Blustery wind and freezing rain… everything one needs to stay home near the fire. But what if you insist on braving the weather? Then you will need something warm and comfortable. Which, of course, brings me to tonight’s post.

I am sporting the “Jerico Coat and Hoodie” from FurtaCor. You can add this to your closet for a mere 77L this weekend as part of the Mix Weekend sale. I realize that this is over our customary 75L cut off. However, it’s such a small stretch and the outfit is certainly worth every penny. You’ll get a HUD to change the coat’s texture to one of colors, all of which go well with the Christmas inspired hoodie. 

I don’t know how long this special price will last so you may wish to fetch it as soon as possible.

Sizes Included

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