Free Dove Has More Free Stuff!! Really!

Every month, Free Dove has been having mini hunts from some of the stores that regularly contribute to them. I picked up some great clothes from Cero Style, and what amounts to a fatpack of shoes from Baby Monkey, and thought I’d show some of it off.

There are 10 hidden boxes from Baby Monkey, you are looking for the white box with the dove on it, and 8 items from Cero Style. Their hunt object is the silver star. Each item is free for everyone, you just need to find them:)

Here’s a close up of the Pal Slingbacks, in red. The other colours I did not show off, are Navy, Tan, Ivory and Brown. These shoes come in SLink high, Bellezza, and Maitreya versions.

Almost all of the Cero Style outfits, including 3 more not shown, are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. A few come with system layer items.

I’m not 100% sure how long either hunt will run at Free Dove, but why chance missing out?

Alright lovelies, I am off for now. Hope you are having as wonderful a weekend as I am. Until next time, TTFN!

Sunday Stretching with Flair

Told ya I’d be back soon!

Sunday Stretching

When I logged in earlier today, I had a notecard from Flair, saying for a short 24hrs, they’d have their ballet slipper set of nail appliers as a free gift for everyone, in celebration of the new SLink pointe feet. I do not know when that 24hrs started from, but as of this post, they are still out, so I am guessing it is at least until midnight tonight, if not into tomorrow. The set is for SLink hands and feet only, and I think they are just adorable, no ballet experience necessary! I’ve included a picture of the ad itself so you get a really good look at the colour choices available.

Sunday Stretching With Flair

Oh, and are you eyeing up my comfy pink leggings I have on? They are an older free for everyone gift from Flair that is still available. It was shown here on FabFree a few years ago (I did say older) but they are still just as good today. There are 3 colours, and come in system layers as well as include a SLink Physique hud, that will also work on just the feet.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that the coming week has nothing to dread😛 I will see you all again real soon. TTFN *waves*

Show Your Pride

Show Your Pride 2

One of the best things about Second Life is the diversity… and April marks the start of the Femboy Hunt. There are quite a few stores in Second life which are friendly to Femboy and LBGT fashion, one of which is Brocade Tiger. For this hunt in particular, Brocade Tiger is featuring a 2L gift that is not to be missed… these “Pride Blue Jeans” with their rainbow look and bedazzled back pockets. For just 2L and a little hunting time, these quality mesh jeans in all the standard sizes are well worth picking up. They even include a fantastic attached rainbow mesh belt.

Show Your Pride

I figured Astrid wouldn’t be happy unless I showed a little more pride than just the jeans… so I scoured the marketplace and looked for some proper jewelry, and managed to find a reasonably priced necklace at C3. You can get their Gay Pride Necklace for just 10L. I did find that though the marketing says it is unisex it required a bit of editing to get it to fit a male form. It wasn’t difficult with a bit of patience, though, as the shape of the cord is well done.

I’m out for now… but I’ve got my rainbow on! Show your pride too if you are so inclined with these fantastic items.

TGIF & Siss Boom Weekend Specials

Snapshot_003TGIF!!  It’s been a long week.  I sure wish I had a beautiful lake house in RL to escape to…  but I suppose a Second Life trip will have to do for now!

If you happen to have a few spare lindens kicking around this weekend, make sure you take a little trip to Siss Boom and check out the sales they have going on.  I popped in and picked up the high waisted floral printed Boyfriend Jeans for 60L and this great matching Jersey Lace Top (available in a system layer and Omega applier) in green for 55L.   These jeans come in both gold and silver belt options and I gotta say… the gold option matches the top to perfection.  Also – as this top is an applier, there is no interference with the mesh jeans as we sometimes see with mesh on mesh outfits.

I should mention my hair as well as it is also a smoking hot deal!  You can find the Oleander Chanmi Hair I am wearing at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  This round is ending quickly, so if you like this hair – act fast!

Enjoy your weekend❤

I Heart Rompers

AB Gift Close

Hello Fab Free! Am I the only one whose schedule has been whacko lately? haha I swear I will find a regular rhythm again soon. Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about this scandalously cute romper from American Bazaar. Yep, I said scandalous. The low cut, wide v of this romper means  you’ll need to be careful when wearing it, or not, just know you might be showing more than your cleavage. Even so, I do love it, and it’s in my favorite not-a-color, black! The romper is Amercan Bazaar’s most recent FREE group gift for the ladies. It’s of course fully mesh and comes in several fitmesh sizes and a Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza fit. For a little modesty, and to add a touch of casual to this look, I chose to wear an applier tube-top under the romper. The American Bazaar Fashion Group is FREE to join at this time. Wear your group tag. Go to American Bazaar. Get this romper. Look adorable.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – little bones. Tonic – The Blend

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Skin Applier) champagne

Head – CATWA HEAD Gwen *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

In Like a Lion

In Like a Lion

Hello Hello Fab Free! March is coming to an end already, sometimes it seems like the month flew by. With the end of the month coming near, I always check to make sure I’ve picked up any group gifts I can. In my efforts I picked up these high-waist pants from MoDanna, and a lion septum piercing from Swallow. Additionally, The Cart Sale at The Wash continues on. What’s not to love about tons of items at just 10 lindens each?!

These well-textured black leather high-waist pants are a must have! They are the FREE March group gift at MoDanna, and the inspiration for this outfit. These fully mesh pants come in standard mesh sizes, a Belleza fit, Slink fit, and a Maireya fit. Also included in this gift is an applier hud for a blue pentagram bustier style top, which isn’t shown. I didn’t realize it was included until I’d already picked out another top. Whoops! To get this awesome gift, head over to MoDanna and wear your group tag. The MoDanna group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss this one!
In Like a Lion Close Since I goofed missed the top in the MoDanna gift, I picked out this cute little halter top by Kita’s Sideshow at The Cart Sale happening on The Wash sim. There are a few different versions of this mesh top available for 10 lindens each at the Kita’s Sideshow cart. Each of them has a playfully macabre graphic. This one shows a poison bottle with the phrase “Drink and be Merry”. It suits my eclectic style well, and for 10 lindens I had to have it!

For a little finishing touch, I picked up another March group gift. This lion’s head septum piercing is the most recent group gift available at Swallow. The septum piercing gift can be re-sized by clicking, and includes a color change hud with several metal texture options. I thought the lion was quite fitting for March! The Swallow group has a one time join fee of 30 lindens, which is more than worth while. Once you’ve got the Swallow group tag, you can pick up this gift and several others!

I hope you like these fab finds as much as I do. Here are the details, Enjoy!

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

At The Beach, Checking Out The Waves!

Whc spring break 1

Hello everyone, welcome to my last post as a staff member of Fab Free. I would regale you with the story of how, when I was a new resident over seven years ago, I relied on Fab Free to find great items to pick up, how I would eventually come to idolize Love to an embarrassing extent, how I revered Carson when he was a male blogger here, and how much I wanted to emulate them both. This blog has been more than a hobby; it was hugely important to me in both my first and second lives. Sadly, though, times do change. While my feelings towards Fab Free have not, I do need to step away from my dream job here in order to focus on other matters at hand.

Before I go, I have to tell you about a few fantastic items. The great Roughnecks T-Shirt shown above is available as a free group gift. It has been a long winter for me and the thought of donning a well-worn, soft cotton tee and shorts is irresistible. This free Group Gift Tee looks very much like a real world garment and is adorned with a cool biker image on both the front and the back. Inside the box is a wide range of versions including tucked, untucked, Mesh, Fitmesh and three different waist widths to help fit with a wide range of Mesh pants. Not only is this going to fit well but this Tee is going to look great with almost any pants you choose to wear with it. I was very impressed with everything included in this box.

The shorts I am wearing come from the unbelievably bountiful Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event! Previously, the main item on it was featured by Astrid here, but there is so much more there that deserves a look! These Cargo Shorts in White Canvas look fantastic and inspired me to go seek out some sun. (A good thing too because in real life my legs were about that color). I love the way they look but I should caution you that finding the perfect shirt to wear with them is slightly more complicated since they seem to require a little extra width at the waist at the back. Luckily they look awesome if you go bare-chested too and the little extra work putting together an outfit with them is well worth the effort!

whc spring break2

Also at the Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event are these sharp looking polo shirts. My favorite was the Polo Shirt – Nautical package which contains that fun looking print shirt you see me chilling on the beach in. In addition to that design it comes with a hud that gives you two more textures to choose from, a bargain at only 10L! Inset in the picture are two examples of the Polo Shirt – Madras Colors package also available for only 10L. Along with a third color (light blue) included in the texture change hud, these polos are excellent Easter and spring-wear. All put together this was one of the best cart sale carts I have ever seen!

Oddity has a great item they are giving away as a free group gift that is perfect for us spring breakers. The -TopGun- Dark Glasses are sharp looking aviator style sunglasses. A classic eternally popular design, these sunglasses are a good pickup as you prepare to look cool for the coming spring and summer months. Well done Oddity, thank you!

It has been beyond fun serving all of you. In the end, that is what we do here at Fab Free, and that what all of us at here have in common. It doesn’t matter where we are, where we have been, or when we were here at this wonderful institution. What we do, we do out of love for all of you. I have re-launched my own blog and will continue posting there when time permits. I leave you with one final thought: Second Life is an amazing adventure if you open yourself to it and allow yourself to be carried away. The trick is finding what you love and focusing on that. My time here has been my greatest adventure so far, and I want to thank all of you for that. Take care and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
