Cute as a Bug

Cute as a Bug

I love taking a lazy day to simply explore the grid. No matter how many times I go for a wander, I always find something new. I count myself lucky to have found this gorgeous little Sim today. This is Candlewood and it’s one of the prettiest places I’ve seen here in Second Life. I honestly had a hard time picking a spot to take my picture because everywhere was so perfect.

Picture Perfect

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Nuts Inc.


Welcome to the Blog Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re ready for this edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This time we have the pleasure of sharing Nuts Inc. with you. This fun little shop has brightly colored fashion for men and women. Yep, you read that right, there’s menswear at Nuts Inc. along with ladieswear. As you enter the store you’ll find the clothing separated by women’s fashion on the left and men’s fashion on the right. The clothing styles range from casual wear to formal, and everything in between. I even spotted a ballgown or two. There is also a second floor at Nuts Inc. with a few seasonal and miscellaneous clothing items.

First however you’ll want to stop by the front desk. There you can find a group gift for guys and one for gals. The Nuts Inc. group has a one time join fee of 15 linden. In addition to the current group gifts, you’ll find a 70 linden promotional offer in the same area of the Nuts Inc. store. Just look for it on the wall opposite the desk. Right next to it you’ll spot the colorful Fab Free logo above the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free tag for this one. If you’re not already a member, you can join for free. As you explore the Nuts Inc. shop be sure to make it to the back of the store. It’s there you’ll find a kiosk with quite a few past group gifts still available. Finally, next to the past group gifts you can also get all the store information such as their Flickr and redeliveries. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Now and WooW

Hey There Fab  Free! It’s time for another edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This edition is all about a shop called “Now and WooW.” This little shop is a ladies fashion boutique that carries both mesh and applier clothing as well as shoes. At Now and WooW you’ll find mostly what I would consider club-wear. However there are shoes (as I mentioned before), some casual streetwear looks, a little bit of lingerie, and even a few hairstyles. It is definitely a little bit of everything, so there’s bound to be something for almost everyone. Sorry guys!

As you enter the Now and WooW shop you’ll see the information desk right away. In this area you can join the in-world group, which is free to join. There’s even a cool studded pair of free group gift high heeled shoes waiting for you next to the desk. Also on the wall next to the desk are the posters for the store associated groups and events. In this area of the Now and WooW store is where you can pick up your free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, have no fear, the Fab Free group is free to join also. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 1/13/2019 – C!L

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! You guessed it, this is another edition of “Designer of the Week” with fabulous designer C!L. This is definitely a new-to-me shop, and as C!L may well be new to you as well, we like to make a little post once a week as we have new designers joining Fabulously Free in SL to tell you about them and all they have to offer (especially the gifts!). C!L is a ladies clothing store that has a sort of “old Hollywood” feel to their clothing style. Much of what you’ll find are mesh dresses for both casual and formal occasions. The C!L shop itself is small, though I suspect that may change. Currently you will see right away the desk where you can grab a little free gift. It’s the small purple giftbox. Also, as you can see C!L is participating in the Magical Winter Hunt.

Here next to the desk is also where you can join the C!L store group. It has a one time join fee of 50 linden. The current C!L group gift is waiting just above the group joiner. It’s a pretty strapless formal gown in several colors. You can also pick up the free C!L gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in this spot. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Just click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag to get your fabulous fur coat.

Across from the desk on the opposite wall at C!L is a Midnight Mania board. The free prize is another beautiful formal gown in black. There is no group required to participate in this Midnight Mania board, and as you can see the board has a low target that does appear to fill up! Whether you are looking for a formal gown or just something pretty to wear while you shop, definitely stop by C!L and take a look at their glamorous clothing line.

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Winter Friends

Winter friends

As, I’m sure you all know by now, the Epiphany – Holidays event is going strong! I finally got in and was just about overwhelmed. There are so many venders this year! I’m sure you’ll find something to love.

So Cozy

Like this cute as a button cozy sweater and super cute bear ears ear muffs from 89HZ. I would have been happy to pull anything from the Laura Gacha but I really wanted the cute ear muffs and a matching sweater. ‘Cause, you know, I got a lot of ear to cover. 😉 The ear muffs are easily modifiable to fit anyone and come in a bunch of colors. At 75L per play, the 89HZ Laura Gacha sneaks in just at our cut off but it’s really worth it.

Sizes Included

  • FitMesh

Put a Bow In it

Limerence is quickly becoming one of my Go-To designers and I almost always play the heck out of their Gachas. The Limerence Christmas Hair Gacha at the Epiphany- Holiday Event  is no different. I was playing for the Lina Hair with the soft braid and pretty bow. At 75L per play… I played….a lot. 😉 But I was thrilled when I got the one I wanted and unpacked it. Perfect style and perfect color. There is even a HUD for the bow so I can match lots of outfits.

The Epiphany – Holidays Event runs until December 27th so don’t let it pass you by!

Juli… where are you?

Oh and a word about my gorgeous photo location… Right in the FabFree headquarters back yard! That’s right, we’ve decorated for the Holidays! Come on by and do some ice skating and Santa spotting.

Shadow One Estates Fall Festival & Haunted Corn Maze

Fall Festival Haunted Hayride 2
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about the up-coming Halloween weekend! If you’re like me and you can’t get enough of all the spooky fun, you need to visit the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. There are so many scary fun things to do here that I’m certain I will accidentally leave one out. At the Fall Festival landing point you’ll see a sign with windlight setting suggestions. I highly recommend using them to enhance the experience. The photo below was taken using the suggested setting. Also at the landing point you’ll want to click the sign to receive your flashlight. There’s an information menu when you click the jack-o-lantern that has the “click here” sign. In that menu you can choose to get a gift, which is a silly pumpkin head mask.

In this same landing area at the Fall Festival you’ll see a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin. Click the pumpkins and you’ll see funny messages in open chat. Once you find the “right” one you’ll be gifted your very own pumpkin. There’s also a table with treats and candies, take a grab from each bowl and get a cute little prize. Pru picked up a purple spider ring and some Halloween candy. There’s even a cute little spot with hay bales and pumpkins where you can take some fun fall photos.
Pru Haunted Hayride
After having done all your Halloween-loving little heart desires at the Fall Festival landing, you can head toward the haunted corn maze. There is the option of choosing to bravely go on foot through the maze, or hitch a ride in the horse-drawn carriage. Once you’ve completed the creepy haunted corn maze, you’ll end near the even creepier haunted house. You’ll want your flashlight for sure to explore the house and the surrounding haunted grounds at the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. There’s even a macabre scavenger style hunt you can complete to be sure you aren’t missing any of the scary fun. You’ll find the list of things to find on your search on a board outside the windmill.

Whether you’re looking for a spot to spend a spooky date-night, or a scary fun-filled adventure with you’re friends, I would highly recommend the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. Just be warned, though tons of fun, some of the sights and settings are frightful! However if you ask Pru, being a little scared is half the fun!

Delacruz Park

Delacruz Park
Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about bringing you posts not only about free and fabulously inexpensive items, but places you can go to have fun without spending your linden as well. Delacruz Park is a recent discovery of mine that I believe is one of Second Life’s many lesser-know but amazing locations. It’s a small but fully functioning amusement and adventure park. Most if not all of the rides and attractions are for sale, but you can experience them for free in this beautifully landscaped setting. You can even see the neon blue roller coaster in the background of the above photo! Also, I love that Delacruz Park is all decked out for the fall season.

Delacruz Park Ferris Wheel View
Delacruz Park is family friendly, however it would also be a fun spot for date night or an afternoon with friends. I already mentioned the roller coaster, this second photo was taken from high up in the working Ferris Wheel. If you look closely you can spot a few of the other attractions such as the Hot Air Balloon ride, the must-see mini Stone Hinge setup. I could continue to list the number of things to see and do at Delacruz park, however half the fun is discovering all this beautiful spot has to offer. Also, I’m sure I’d absentmindedly leave something out!

Along with this destination recommendation, Pru is wearing a couple of past group gifts that are still available. If you’re interested in her look, you can check the credits below!
