Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

Adventures in Babysitting

Adventure 3
Hello there, Fab Free!  In my last post {HERE}, I told you about the Flawless Sim’s Adventures in Babysitting quest that Ripley and I had recently completed.  Today I have a quick post to share three more of the 11 free prizes that are awarded at the completion of the quest.

A Bird in the Hand

First of all, the Pretty Saffron Finch perched on my finger came from Zo Awesum.  The cute little guy is so adorable, and comes with his own cage, but I kind of figured he’d appreciate some freedom so he could stretch his wings.  Best of all, he is completely free when you finish the babysitting quest.  When I was a little girl in real life, I used to sit quietly below my father’s bird feeder, with my hand outstretched, just hoping a feathered friend might land on my fingers, but it never happened.  At least I get to experience that in SL. 🙂

A Free Top….Why Knot?

My free, long sleeved, knotted top from Tori Stylez was well worth all the searching for those two wandering twins.  Lily features a delicate floral print and realistic folds in the texture.  It includes a color change HUD packed with 8 options, so it’s like getting 8 different shirts in one.  I chose to pair  the crop top with simple denim shorts, but you could also dress it up with a skirt or a pair of longer pants on a cool day.  I really like how the ends of the ties dangle down.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

    • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
    • alpha layer for classic avatars
    • Curvy
    • Fine
    • Freya
    • Hourglass
    • Isis
    • Maitreya
    • Physique
    • TMP
    • Venus

Adventure 1

The Mark of Beauty

Sometimes in SL, it seems like everything is just too perfect, too flawless.  With the free Adventures in Babysitting gift from Arte, you can add a touch of whimsy and visual interest to an otherwise perfect complexion.  With the Catwa Adored Moles applier, you can wear two versions of a sprinkling of beauty marks.  I think they provide a lovely touch of character, and help to draw the eye to your face. Below, I’ve included snapshots of my face with no beauty mark applier (on the left) and with the second variation  of the moles (on the right), so you can get an idea of the range of options available. One of the wonderful things about SL is the ability to change the appearance of your skin with just a few clicks.

Adventures 5

Well, that wraps up my coverage of the Adventures in Babysitting quest at the Flawless Sim.  The event runs only until May 29th, and grants you 11 free prizes in all  at the completion of the quest.  I enjoyed reading the story as I traveled from store to store, and was very happy with the quality of the gifts at the end.  To begin your own adventure, teleport to the Flawless Sim, and click the event sign to obtain the necessary Hud.  Wear the HUD, which will appear as a red oval on your screen, say yes when prompted for permission, then left touch the HUD and select “Adventure in” on the sub menu.   Directions for completing the quest will appear on your screen.

Until my next post, happy shopping questing!

It’s Just Like Riding A Bike

ScandalizeTresChic
HORRAY for Friday! I am very much looking forward to a weekend of relaxing… Maybe I’ll even pull out my old ten speed and see if I can remember how to ride it.  I thought I’d try a little practice in Second Life first and took a trip down to Baja Shore.  Seems pretty easy here, hopefully I’ll follow suit on the real life version.  Wish me luck!

A Fine Friday

On this fine and sunny Friday afternoon, I am sporting the Lauren outfit by Scandalize that I picked up as a free Tres Chic group gift for this Anniversary round.  As Serena mentioned in her post [HERE] and [HERE], there are a ton of gifts to pick up with your free group join!  You can find this gift in particular at the Scandalize display at Tres Chic.

About Lauren

The Lauren outfit is a one piece outfit that includes the skirt and blouse together.  It also comes with a texture change hud that allows you to change both the top and bottom to several different patterns/colours with the click of a button.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

A Date With Destiny

WellmadeAphorism
Hey there FabFree Readers!  I am just taking some time to myself to enjoy some oldie but goodies on vinyl.  It makes me so sad to think back about when I was a kid and used to make roads out of the records lined up on the ground for my little brother to drive his trucks on.  So many a scratched record happened, and many albums didn’t survive but there are some good memories attached to playing trucks with my brother…. and yes..  there were Barbies in those trucks.  It was the only way I would play!

Rompers are all the rage!

If you haven’t noticed on the feeds already…  rompers are a big deal this season and I was glad to have come by this poppy printed jumpsuit as a free group gift at [Wellmade].  The Destiny Jumpsuit also includes a texture change HUD that allows for a pastel floral print as well.  This group is free to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up!

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Vacation – Day 1

Vacation - Day 1

 

Sleeping in…

The first item on my summer list was being able to sleep in. And I must say it was working out simply fantastic until…. I hear the whimpering at the side of my bed.  It seems poor little Angel is not on her summer vacation schedule as of yet and thinks it’s time for me to get up and cater to her needs. I grab my clothes and look for her leash… Girl, we need to talk about letting me sleep in…

Casual Camo Cargo…

Second Life often imitates Real life in my choices of clothing. My summer choice of pants is not the standard jeans, but comfy cargos and today is no exception. I happened to touch the Midnight Mania Board at DS Mens Wear and won the Jungle Camo Outfit. There is no group needed to participate. The outfit includes a tank, cargo pants and shoes for the Aesthetic body, but other than the tank looking a little big, everything else fit perfectly on my ADAM body. The Midnight Mania board changes items with each round so stop by and see what you could win today.

We are back from our walk and I’m drinking my first cup of coffee, wide awake and ready to start my day. And the dog? She’s snoring behind my chair…. /me grumbles

Get Wet

Get Wet

Surfin’ Safari…

I’ve really become a fan of going to surfing sims and riding the waves. It’s fun and, believe it or not, relaxing to hear the waves and ride over some of these mondo waves.  Today I’m boarding at San Blas Beach where the waves are high and the current is swift. I stopped by ::Mr.Poet:: and upstairs near the lucky boards was a rack of FREE gifts, no group needed. I picked up the Summer Tank Top that comes in three different prints. I’m also wearing the green Swimsuit I found at NEWCLOVER when they were having their new store celebration. but when I went back to check, it was no longer free. 😦  And what would a surfing post of mine be without a pose from Le Poppycock? (I said I played several rounds on the gacha) Today’s pose is called “Get Wet” from the Surf’s Up series. The pose comes with a texture changing surfboard in several colors. Each play of the gacha is just 50L. I’m going to paddle out to catch another wave.
If you haven’t tried surfing, you should give it a go!

Official Kick Off To Gardening Season

prismLW

Good morning Fabulouses!  Yesterday was a holiday here in Canada (YAY for a Monday free work-week!), and the official kick off to gardening season, so I spent the day flower shopping,  planting and spreading new mulch.  I did stop in online however to find some freebie news to share with all of you!

A Prism Replay

This casual two piece outfit called Naquita by Journey is available as a free group gift at Prism (no fee to join!!).  It includes the printed blouse and cuffed jeans as shown on my avatar in XXS – L mesh sizes as well as the alpha layers for hiding rogue body parts.  Now this outfit has been shown on FabFree before, way back in 2015 by Julianna – but I wanted to make mention of it again for anyone who missed the news, because it’s still available as a free group gift along with a wall full of gifts  – and is a keeper!

Been Strong Too Long

LW Poses put up a new free group gift for May at the landing point of the shop for Luane’s World group members (free to join).  This pose is called Been Strong Too Long and comes with the single pose, pose ball and mirrors.

The Buried Man

Buried Man

It’s the end of the world as we know it…

But why sweat the small stuff. I’ve got a shack to live in, a fire to keep me warm, and a large broken statue that creeps me out at night. Who could ask for more? I was lucky enough to win this outfit at the Lucky Board at Angel DELUXE (before the world went to hell in a hand basket). The Desert Outfit can be won if your lucky letter come up. You do need to be a Angel DELUXE group member to click the board, but the join fee is just 10L. I’m also wearing the Shearling Boots,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel and the TopGun Retro Glasses, also a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. I had a lot of fun exploring The Buried Man Sim. Check it out!

Catch of the Day

Catch of the Day
Hello Fabulouses!  I hauled in a great one today!  No, it’s not the fish (but he’s a beauty, don’t you think?)  My Fabulous Find is the best catch of all!  This adorable short set is a free group gift for members of the B&T Designs group at Bijou Couture.  My barely-there, bardot style, crop top coordinates perfectly with the patterned belt and back pockets of the Naomi shorts.  I just love the sweet rose pattern and the soft ruffles in the top and sleeves.  I’m sure to soak up plenty of the sun’s rays with my shoulders and tummy bare.  This outfit is ideal for a lazy warm spring or summer day.  You have to be a group member to reel in this charming short set, but the group is completely free to join.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Catch and Release

Well, I’d better pop this guy back in the water, and whistle for Ripley, who is off hunting for the perfect stick.  It’s time for us to mosey on home for the day.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
