Scritches for Jack

Scritches for Jack

When I was just a very little kid, I took horse back riding lessons and fell in love with my lesson horse. His name was Jack. He was a sweet old horse and I still think about him. I’m not able to keep a horse where we live now in real life, so I have my “Jack” here in Second Life. And like the RL jack, this one loves his scritches too.

If you’re going out… take a sweater!

It’s still pretty cold in my little corner of the Grid. So I was pleased to see Jazzixa Casalet for Prism set out this cozy set of Sweater, jeans and boots as the January group gift. That’s right, you get a complete outfit including the boots all for free for us Group members. And double yay… the group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

Straighten up my crown

I’ve been shopping at the Epiphany again. This time I played the heck out of Doe’s “Yas Queen” Gacha. I was lucky enough to pull my own set of ginger pretty quickly. But I’ll be going back for the little crown that’s also in the Gacha. Too cute! Each hair comes with a HUD to style the bangs two different ways as well.

Best Bitches

Best Bitches

Every gal needs a bestie.  I am quite lucky that I have found loads of amazing friends over the years on SL.  My Fab Free family are not only people I collaborate with, but we have a great laugh behind the scenes and share our lives and ups and downs with each other.  One other person that my SLife has been made rich by is my good friend Eesoov.  We met right back at the beginning of my days in SL, and she showed me the ropes – as well as quite a few police boxes (don’t get me started on Doctor Who…).   We’re showing off a few group gifts that we’re sure you’ll love.

Best B’s

Me and Eesoov often go shopping together, and though our styles can be quite different, we did agree that this group gift over at Foxes was right up our alley.  I joined the group for 150 Lindens, and went into the right hand side of the store to find this gift.  Just pay the vendor 1L, and then you can transfer the “bitches” version of the dress to your bestie!  How cool is that?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

So Cosmo

While I was over at Cosmopolitan, I found that there are some new group gifts this round!  The pose you see Eesoov and I striking is the current gift by K&S Poses that you can pick up by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free.  There was also a super cute pair of heels that you can pick up too while you’re there!

I hope that you have someone really special to share your SL with, I know I do!

Mermaid Monday


Mermaid Monday

Hi There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! In a perfect world the above photo shows exactly how I’d want to spend the day. I’d love to be lounging on a fluffy sofa with some pretty candles lit eating tarts from a fancy tray. Alas, it is simply not meant to be, not for real life anyway. Thank goodness for Second Life where I can at least pretend. lol Even better I can get the fluffy sofa, the pretty candles, and the plate of tarts all for free at Merak. Additionally, I can live out a little bit of my mermaid daydreams wearing these leggings from RoRo. Keep reading for more information about the free group gifts at Merak and the store closing sale at RoRo.

Merak – I need to be sure to thank Love for pointing out these awesome group gifts at Merak. Right now you can pick up several free gifts while wearing your Merak group tag including the candles, sofa, and tray of tarts shown. The candles come in 3 versions, and the sofa has single and couples poses along with some texture options for the large center pillow. The Merak group is free to join as well, making these gifts irresistible and well worth the effort. There are some additional gifts available that are not shown in my photo, so I’ve added a photo below of the group gift area at Merak.

RoRo – The news is sad but true, RoRo is closing. The store will shut its doors tomorrow, January 15th. If there’s anything you’d like from the store, now is the time. Most items are marked down to just 25 lindens. I picked up these super cute leggings for 25 lindens. They are an Omega applier only item with several color variations. At RoRo you’ll also find many past gifts out marked from 1 linden to 10 lindens each. Also, there is an assortment of gachas from different stores all marked 25 lindens each. You’ll definitely want to stop by RoRo and check things out. The below photo shows some of what you can expect to find. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

After a long weekend of busy and running around, I am happy to get back on the Grid for some relaxation.  So I headed straight to my new favorite place to wander: Soul2Souls Highlands.

Roses for days

Luckily I had a brand new outfit to wander about in. I especially pleased with my new jeans. These are the ‘high waisted boot cut jeans’ from the Sissy Bar. These are the 1L Hunt prize for the New Years Hunt running until January 31. Just find the little red question mark somewhere in the store and they can be yours too!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • eBody

Staying Cozy

I needed a nice cozy top to go wandering, these Highlands are still pretty chilly, ya know. So I made a stop on the marketplace to find the perfect new sweater. And !gO! was my “Go -to”. This is the ‘Balbina’ sweater and it’s a 1L gift from !gO! on the marketplace. There are several great 1L gifts on !gO!’s page so check those out too.

Lemon Verbina


Lemon Verbina

Meow Meow Hi Fab Free! Haha I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I have to say mine is going pretty well so far. Have you been by the Pose Fair yet?! I feel like I’ve been talking about it a ton, but with good reason. I am not exaggerating when I say there are so many free gifts at the Pose Fair. I also want to point out that while I may not be blogging them, there are quite a few male pose freebies and couples poses. So there’s my bit about the Pose Fair for today. I am of course showing another of the gifts from the event, this time from WetCat. Also, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Sexy Princess. Lastly, as always tattoos are irresistible, and Letis Tattoo has a cute 10 linden tattoo out that I just had to share.

The Cushion – The cute little yellow cushion that Pru is so delicately perched upon is the free Pose Fair group gift by WetCat. This simple floor pillow comes equipped with 2 static female sit poses, and 2 static male sits. You’ll need to join the Pose Fair group and wear the tag before clicking the giftbox at the WetCat booth. The Pose Fair group is free to join.

The Boots – Have you seen the Fabulously Free in SL group  gift listing recently? It’s looking pretty good. The gifts do change periodically, so if you haven’t checked them out recently, you should definitely take a look. I picked up these high heeled ankle boots for free at Sexy Princess while wearing my Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. These cute boots come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

The Tattoo – Finally, the dainty floral linework tattoo on Pru’s upper arm is a 10 linden group only purchase available at Letis Tattoo. You will need to join the Letis Tattoo group to purchase this inexpensive find, however the group is free to join. As much as I do like to be heavily inked, sometimes I enjoy these beautiful more subtle tattoos just as much as a full body one. This 10 linden tattoo comes in several appliers, each with a range of intensity. Also, this tattoo comes in classic system tattoo layers for non mesh avatars!

Come and Get Me!


Come Get Me

Hello and Happy Friday Fab Free! Truthfully, it’s been ages since I was somewhere I could engage in a good old fashioned snowball fight. I kind of miss being able to play in the snow. Thankfully, Second Life has me covered. Here I get all the snow I want and none of the cold! Today I am excited to share with you another one of the many free gifts from the Pose Fair, and a group gift hairstyle from Pink Hustler.

Hat & Hair – On a whim I stopped by Pink Hustler and spotted this pretty hairstyle with the knitted cap. I think it’s a cute departure from the winter beanies. This hairstyle is free to Pink Hustler group members and includes 2 color change huds. One hud has solid hair color options, while the other has a mix of ombre color choices. The Pink Hustler group is 500 linden to join, however there are quite a few free group gifts to be had including hairstyles, and nails.

Pose & Props – This fun snowball fight pose is by Juxtapose, and you can get it for free at the Pose Fair. This free Pose Fair gift by Juxtapose comes with wearable snowball props as well as the single static pose. To get your copy, head over to the Pose Fair and join the free-to-join Pose Fair group. Then click the giftbox at the Juxtapose booth while wearing your group tag.

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone. To get your copy of this dynamic pose, head over to the Pose Fair, and be sure to join the free group before clicking the gift box at the posEd booth.

Melora’s Boudoir

Witchy Romance

Hey There Fab Free! The Gachaland gacha event has started and I just had to share this bedroom set by Oubliette with you. It’s the witchy romantic bedroom of my little gothic heart’s dreams! The textures in each piece are beautiful and detailed. This gacha set is just 50 linden per play, and of course the items are transfer. The bed, chair, and ottoman all have male and female poses, and the light fixtures give off a small amount of ambient light. Speaking of lighting, the beautiful chandelier is a prize awarded after 20 pulls that is exclusive to the event. The Gachaland event will run until the end of January, so don’t wait and miss the opportunity to score some gorgeous bedroom furniture at an incredible price. I’ve included a copy of the Melora’s Boudoir by Oubliette vendor photo because there is one additional piece I was unable to show. I hope you love this set as much as I do!

Happy, Healthy & Zen AF

FabFree: Happy, Healthy & Zen AF

Good morning FabFree, and Happy New Year! I am not one to make resolutions for new years as I never seem to be able to follow through with them, but I am really hoping that this year for myself and for everyone is super zen AF…  Happy, healthy and zen AF!

Attention SL photographers and bloggers!

Today I am featuring news about DB Poses on marketplace.  DB Poses has been known for years to make lovely male, female, couple and family poses, but has recently announced that he will be taking a break and has dropped the price of all of his items to 10L in the marketplace store.  I found several fun poses for myself that I can’t wait to use, and I thought this news might be useful for anyone that is into Second Life photography or blogging.

This particular bento pose is called The Moments We Live For and yep…  10L!

Happy snapping!
