Lots and Lots of Stars…

I’m out late at night searching…. not for stars but for Easter eggs on The Great Easter Egg Hunt. This is a large hunt with 625 gifts and 339 locations to visit. Sponsored by Caspertech, you can pick up your hunt HUD [HERE] and is nifty enough to let you know how many eggs are at each location and includes hints! And the best thing about this hunt is that all the gifts are FREE! Just the little bit I was out hunting, I found the Too Young To Dye Easter Tee from >>K<< and the Graf Cargo Shorts at Angel DELUXE. The cargo shorts come in Fitmesh and standard sizes to fit just about anyone and also includes a belt (not shown).

I See You…

Madpea Productions usually has a FREE Friday-Only gift for members, but I barely have time to get a post up before the gift is gone. I loved this one so much that I’m putting it up in hopes some people want it. The Telescope from Madpea has three poses included for your stargazing pleasure. The Madpea group is FREE to join.

I’m going to hunt all night if I have to….

Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away

 

How to enjoy the holiday weekend…

There are many ways to relax this extended weekend. but for me it will be on the top of a boat, taking in the sun and the waves…. in Second Life, at least…. I do intend to do some serious rl relaxing this weekend after a few necessary chores are completed.

Online Shopping Addict…

On my shopping spree online I found some great deals on the Marketplace.  I found a few dollarbies that look and feel great for lounging about. The Bro Collection Casual Cotton Tee is a 1L find on the marketplace from Adham DeCuir. It comes with a texture HUD to change the tee to three different statements  (Now I can’t get this song out of my head). Another 1L find is the White Bermuda Cargo Shorts by Aquarius. For my feet I picked up the Sandy Flip Flops at DROPS that Kat first showed [HERE]. I’m still wearing the Brandon Specs from Thalia Heckroth, a group gift and free to members and just 5L to join.

Time to feel the breeze in my hair and the surf on my face….

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Never ending shopping spree…

Life as a blogger always has you on the lookout for your next item to show and the next location to photograph at. I’m always on the go, store to store, sim to sim, and rarely stop to take a break.  But as I passed this mobile coffee stand, I thought I’d stop and look to see what tasty menu items looked appealing…

Be a Spaz…

Today I’m wearing one of the newest group gifts from Spazio. The A28 Pants and Jacket with Shirt is a semi casual fun look and great to shop in. The Hypnose-Spazio group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE to members. I also found the Brandon Specs, a free group gift at Thalia Heckroth. These sunglasses come with a color changing HUD to change out the rims and the frames. This group does have a 5L joining fee, but well worth the 5L.

I’m off to my next location shoot. I’m thinking maybe a cruise….

Spreading News of Joy

Snapshot_006
Hello Fabulous Readers! Today I am bringing you news of a couple group gifts you just might be interested in learning about.  In just a couple stops and group joins, you’ll have the full outfit I am wearing too.

Your First Stop

The first one is at NyDesign.  When you join their free inworld group there are a few group gifts that you can obtain with your tag activated on the back wall in the VIP area, however the latest free gift is the Joy Skirt & Blouse Combi that I am wearing today. It goes on in one piece with the blouse and skirt attached, however it includes a texture change HUD that allows you to  make a handful of texture changes to both the top and the bottom.  The cut out floral blouse is not for the shy.  You may wish to wear a bra or some pasties to conceal your lady bits, but I didn’t find it was too risqué.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya
  • Ebody

Your Second Stop

The second place you need to head to is none other than N-Core!  Now…  this group will set you back 199L but after you join, you can pick up the fatpack of Mambo shoes as you as me wearing today!  The Calyssa Boots that have previously been shown on FabFree as an N-Core group gift are still available as well, so you can pick up both packs for one join fee!

Mambo Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • N-Core
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to meet a friend for coffee at this shop in the City of Templemore.  With my companion running late, I had plenty of time to snap a photo of my latest outfit to share with you all.

Sleek and Elegant

My entire outfit today, with the exception of the boots and cell phone, are free gifts from Rowne.  The Alla Crepe Top and Xinyu Trousers brought to mind a sophisticated, uptown girl look (tune).  I like the high waist of the pants, and the short cropped top, which left one arm bare while the opposite was encased in a full-length sleeve.  I thought it made for an interesting visual contrast.  The pants emphasized my long, slender figure, and at first, I had a hard time finding footwear that would work with them.  My slink feet and shoes poked through far above the hemline of the trousers, and I couldn’t adjust where they attached on my legs.  Uh-oh…

An Uh-Oh Followed by a Sigh of Relief

After adjusting my hover height to be slightly above the ground, I dug down deep in my inventory, and found some old-style boots that I could adjust and slide down to the bottom of the cuffs of the trousers.  It worked like a charm, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when I went to include the landmarks for my post, I discovered that the boots in my full-body shot were no longer available.  I did, however, find an alternate pair from Blackburns (shown in the close up picture below) that worked just as well, and these were only 29L on the Marketplace!  Phew!

An Entire Outfit, But That’s Not All…

In addition to the pantsuit, Rowne also has the Jane Cat Eye Sunglasses, Bon Bon Earrings, and Buckett bag set out as free gifts for group members.  I felt they all coordinated beautifully, so I combined them in one look.  The end result:  classy sophistication!  Although the group has a 350L join fee, the numerous gifts available balance out the initial expense.

What’s Included in All the Gifts:  

  • Alla Crepe Crop Top and Xinyu Crepe Trousers fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Buckett Bag (with two pose options)
  • Cat Eye Sunglasses in Onyx (they were originally on top of my head; I edited them to be on my face)
  • PW BonBon earrings in Lilac (shown) and Hunter

Here’s a close up of the Blackburn boots.  They’re cute, aren’t they?

Boots Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cool Beach Guy

Cool Beach Guy

No Worries…

As I approach the holiday weekend, I am realizing how much I need a break from the stressors of everyday life. I’m ready to kick back and not have any cares… for a few days, at least.  To just hang out on the beach and be that cool guy that nothing ever seems to bother… I could be that guy. I will be that guy!

Too Cool for School….

The Cool Beach Guy Set is a free gift by ILLI found at Free Dove. The pants and shirt each come in classic sizes XS-XL and this FREE gift also includes sandals and resizable sunglasses. This is a cool and comfy way to spend the weekend… now if I just had one of those drinks with the fancy umbrellas…

Stopping for a Cuppa

coffee 2_001

Always a hot… hunt.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is one of my favorite hunts. I always love surfing through my inventory after a few stops along the trail. I happened to pick a stop – Mimi’s Choice to be exact – and head home to unpack and was thrilled with the beautiful form fitting flowery gown I unpacked.

This dress nice enough for a date night out, but casual enough for coffee at a cafe. It’s sure to be perfect for any occasion, and it includes all the popular sizes such as:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza

Shoes make a match.

If you hurry, the [MUSE] and NSP Florals March group gift is still out. It’s a lovely gift well worth picking up. You surely must have noticed my gorgeous shoes! These hipster wedges fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza Feet, and include a color change hud with 6 different colors to match your outfits. Hurry! With March being over, I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be out to pick up!

Tropical Nights

Tropical Nights

 

Lifestyles Famous and Fortunate…

A beach, a tropical breeze and a bottle of champagne… it can’t get more romantic than this. If you’re trying to impress, you better look your best.  And you can do just that in the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 gift from Angel DELUXE. The Orlando Outfit  pants come in sizes for the following bodies:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Slink
  • TMP

And both the pants and jacket come in classic XS-SL sizes. I completed the look with the Boston Shoes from A&D Clothing.

Here’s hoping everyone can have a romantic evening on the beach under the stars.

We Are Family

We Are Family

fam(ə)lē

A family is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. And the family I have here at FabFree is united together to bring you the best in free and inexpensive items for all of you on a budget (or if you just like good deals)! We often pass information to each other about the things we’ve seen that my be more someone else’s style than our own… (you won’t ever see me in a skirt and heels). 😃 My fellow bloggers and a few of my friends that point me in the way of sweet deals are my SL family. A guy couldn’t be more lucky!

I’ve been framed!

I’ve taken the time to frame my family (now I sound like a mobster) and honor them as they should be. I found while hunting on the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 the Hall of Fame Family Photo Frame at unmisTakAble Weddings. The gifts on this hunt are just $1L each. Hopefully you have a family as big as mine to frame as well.

Being picked on for sport…

And with any family, there is always teasing back and forth. I usually come out on the short end of the stick.😣 My sporty casual look for a Sunday can both be found at the Wash Cart Sale. At the K&A Design cart, I found both the Sports Tee Shirt and Sport Pants both for just $10L each.

And now it is time for me to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. I worked way too hard doing yard work yesterday…
