Long Day

Long Day
Hey There Fab Free’rs. Welcome back to the blog. I’m always happy you’re here. Yesterday one of those days where you daydream about that moment when you can come home and soak in a nice warm bath. While waiting for the tub to fill and the bath bomb to work it’s magic, I did a little Fab Free style shopping. Here’s what I found: adorable group gift shorts from Moon Amore, and a pretty white ink tattoo by Abyel.

The Shorts – Perfect for lounging around the house, or even a quick errand, these shorts are a must have. They are a recent group gift at Moon Amore and they include a fat pack texture change hud. When I say fatpack, I mean fatpack. There are 36 different texture options for these too cute shorts. They are fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only however. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden. I think these shorts alone are worth that! You can find this gift at the store or in the recent group notices.

The Tattoo –  There is an event called “Up” and there are quite a few 10 linden gifts at the current round. I picked up several, one of which is this tattoo by Abyel. The tattoo is a full upper body tattoo with pretty imagery front and back. I like the addition of little blue/purple flowers and butterflies.  This beautiful 10 linden gift tattoo at Up comes in appliers only.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Omega, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Ok, But First… Coffee

Ok, But First... Coffee

Morning Fabulouses!  Yeah… I can’t do anything before coffee…  Coffee always comes first, and a chocolate pastry never hurts either.  My springy look today is put together with two free hunt items by Poeme, and a group gift and a 60L special by Siss Boom.

Dressed by Siss Boom

At Siss Boom you’ll find these High Waisted Jeans in a dark and medium denim as a free group gift for being a part of their VIP group.  This group will cost you 500L to join, but there are currently 28 really nice group gifts to obtain with this membership making it well worth the fee.   These jeans are omega appliers, so they work fabulously under longer tops like the one I am wearing or jackets.

The lacy top you see me wearing today is also available at Siss Boom, and is currently on sale for 60L until Wednesday as a limited time offer.  It comes in the sizes listed below and also includes a rose which you can add to the chest.  I of course missed it completely and noticed it after I took the photo, but it’s cute with or without ;).

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody

Accessorize at Poeme

Poeme has 6 pastel easter eggs hidden in the gardens outside their shops for The FREE Dozen Good Eggs Hunt that just started yesterday! In two of the eggs, you’ll find the Mandala Turquoise Earrings and Mandala Teal Flats which accessorized my outfit today!  The Flats include Maitreya, Slink and an unrigged version.  Grab the Hunt HUD while you are there to TP to other shops participating in this fabulous free Easter Hunt with six prizes in each store!

Have a great Monday!

Sleepy Kitty

Sleepy Kitty
Hi There Fab Free’rs! Does anyone else have random bouts of insomnia? I know I cannot be the only one! Despite being sleepy the next day I can’t be mad about staying up late, it lead me to find some cute gifts from Kuni and Pink Pearl Designs to share with you.

Hair & Headband – How sweet is this sleek long hairstyle with the cute kitty-eared headband?! You can pick up this FREE group gift at Kuni. You will need to join the Kuni group, however it is FREE to join. This gift includes the hairstyle in 3 sizes, the kitty headband, a texture change hud for the headband, and 2 color huds for the hairstyle with tons of color options.

Tank & Boy Briefs – The waistband of these boy brief style undies says it all! This tank and underwear combo is just cute. To get your copy of this FREE gift you’ll need to take a trip to Pink Pearl Designs. There you’ll see this gift offered to La Femme Fatale Designer group members. This group is FREE to join. Once you have your La Femme Fatale Designer group tag on you can click the little pink gift bag and your gift will be sent to you. The gift comes in several mesh sizes and though the gift is titled “Dark Dayz Fat Pack” mine only included a pastel color hud. I am sure this is just a mistake of some kind, but I was not bothered by it. After all it is still a FREE gift and it is very cute.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

**P.S. The cute sleepy pose I’m using for the photo in this post is part of a pack of “sleepy” static poses by YoGa that you can pick up for just 50 linden on the Marketplace!

Be Cheeky!

Lucky_001

Be Cheeky!

The Finders Keepers Hunt has turned out to be an amazing hunt with some real gems of gifts that the FabFree bloggers have shown off for all of you amazing readers! I noticed that one of my favorite stores, Vision, was on the list, and stopped by to hunt down their gift to see what it was. Pictured above is the free gift – a white waist pants set with a really cheeky top that tells you to “Go Luck Yourself.”

It made me think of Pru who recently blogged about taking your demon to the beach 😀 I’m always excited to see Pru’s posts because she invariably blogs something unique and cheeky that I think I could never pull off! But I think I managed to pull off this one from Vision! Hunt down the pot of gold, and you can be cheeky too! Just be sure to do it before the end of the day on March 24th, because that’s when the hunt ends!

The pants and top come separately and in several sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Lucky_002

As I mentioned in my post [here] there are various perks to being a member of the Vision VIP group. Your one-time fee of 250L gets you an in-store credit of 100L on the first of every month plus access to four lucky letter boards (they change out each month too).

When I picked up my in-store credit this month, my letter happened to be up on one of the lucky letter boards and I grabbed the Moly top! The top is in this lovely Salmon color, but includes a color change hud for the ruffles around the hem. You could make the ruffle white to match the waist pants. Either way, this top goes lovely with the free Finders Keepers waist pants!

Moly Shirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Peace, Love & Camping

Peace, Love & Camping

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I just have to say that Second Life camping is so much more comfortable than Real Life camping. When I arrived to my site today, it was all set up.  My bed was made, the campfire was lit – even my camera was set out and ready to shoot some wildlife photos.  I swear sometimes camping in Real Life is simply setting up half the weekend and then dismantling it all for the rest of the weekend.  Next time, I think I’ll try my RL luck at The Holiday Inn, so I can log in here and get a comfortable camping fix.

Need a free spirited adventure of your own?

Getting dressed for one, is the first step!  You’ll need to take a trip to HashTag to pick up these Ripped Capri Dungarees (fitted for Maitreya Mesh Bodies) as a free group gift (free group join too!), and then head over to Loordes of London and hunt down a black rose hunt icon for the Glam or Grunge Hunt.  Once you find it – pay 1L and you’ll have the Right To Be Free top and vest combo.  It’s not super easy to see in my photo as my pose is a little hunched over, but the vest is decorated with all kinds of cool wild child things like buttons,etc.  This hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included:

  • 5 Standard Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

Chasin’ The March Hare and Avoiding That Evil Bunny

Room Enough for Two

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Just a quick mid-week post to share with you a complete outfit (minus the shoes) that you can pick up at REA as a hunt prize in the Mad as a March Hare Hunt.  The studded jacket, trousers, and even a white top are included, but I opted to go without the t-shirt.  Also tucked inside the prize package is an evil bunny in a chick costume that perches on your shoulder.  Don’t tell him I said so, but that little critter scared Ripley so much that I quickly shoved it back inside the box.  The poor guy was hiding behind Loki the cat, whining and shaking.  Some big, tough German Shepherd, eh?

What’s Included:

  • Evil Bunny Shoulder Pet (not shown)
  • Bunny Headband (not shown)
  • Shannon Jacket (with t-shirt) in S, M, L and Fitmesh (not shown)
  • Shannon Open Jacket in S, M, L, and Fitmesh (shown in picture)
  • Jeans in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layers for both jacket versions and pants

You get all this for just 1 Linden dollar when  you locate the hunt icon – a sitting rabbit.  It’s pretty well hidden in the store, but with the pupster’s assistance, and some careful searching, we finally found it.  The hunt runs until March 31st, so you still have some time left to do some sleuthing and grab a copy for yourself.

Happy hunting!

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!
