Monday Adventures

Hello and happy Monday, FabFam! Wow, what a weekend. I finally made it all the way through the enormous SL19B Shop and Hop. Twenty SIMs is nothing to sneeze at even if it was so much fun. And I don’t even want to talk about all the unboxing!  So let’s get started with one of my top favorite gift from the whole event.

This is the “Emilia” outfit from Zenith. (@ The Shop & Hop Location) This has always been one of my go-to designers and this lovely set is no disappointment. The top, sleeves and skirt are all separate pieces for more mix and matching. The build is top notch and you get a HUD with four different colors to choose from. So you’re looking sharp no matter what you pick!

“Fitting In”

Fitting In

I recently created a new avatar with Maitreya Lara as the mesh body. It took me a lot of time to get the shape right. I was finding that a lot of stuff wasn’t fitting me anymore. Isn’t it crazy how much bodies are changing in SL? The minute I buy the newest one and get used to it, another one comes along… Hopefully, I still kept my curves with this new look. Let me know what you think of the end result! Now that I’m “fitting in” I am hoping to show you some cute outfits and products on the blog that I just couldn’t showcase before… although I would not be surprised if I do go back to my beloved Belleza eventually. I just think it’s so funny how we get emotionally attached to our virtual bodies and heads! I know I do, anyways.

Ooooo, Leg Chains!

A freebie I’ve been dying to show you for some time are these free leg chains from Mossu. You will find this gift lying on the floor under the “Harmony Dress Fatpack” vendor for free for all to grab. No group is required for this one. They’re sexy as heck! The chains include a colour texture change hud that allows you to customize the colours of the metals and the gems. It’s cute little things like this that I’ve been waiting to show you with a body that fits just right.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female

Fitting In II

Latex Look

You may remember that I recently blogged [QE Designs]’ recent offerings on the Kink in Pink Hunt. I couldn’t fit into the full outfit before. Now I can, so I decided to snap a pic with the panties, top, and skirt. Each prize only costs 25L on the hunt, so 75L for this full outfit! Each piece includes a hud of pastel latex colours. The Kink in Pink Hunt is running until June 30th, and you can read all the details about it in my post here.

Sizes Included (top, skirt & panties)

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female
  • eBODY Reborn
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

Marvelously Fab in Paris

Seven $55 Thursday Alena Ourfit_001 (1)

I’m feeling special today. How about you? I think we’ve been watching way too many episodes of Project Runway at home. Today’s outfit kind of reminds me of some of the fashion creations the contestants design and fabricate.  The challenges on the show can run from making an elegant gown in luxurious fabric to using EMS and firefighter supplies for an avant-garde look (think bandages, fire hoses, etc).

In honor of my feeling special, sexy, and so fashionable I visited Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals. I love all of what I’m wearing from the top of my head down to my toes. Where is that runway? I feel like being in a fashion show.

Ooh La La

I subscribe to a lot of stores and groups. This morning I received a notecard about Fifty5 Thursday deals at Seven. Deciding I loved this look off to the shop I went. Alena comes as a top and mini skirt. Details give it an edgy look. There are a number of colors to choose from available at the store ($55L per color).

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink HG & Physique

Edgier (?)

SL19B eyes with hud 6-18-2022_001 (1)

Then another notecard arrived from Sintiklia! The store participates in the Happy Weekend Sale on a fairly regular basis. One of today’s offerings is this funky updo, Octavia. It’s a high ponytail pulled to the front and bangs hanging in front. Included in each color pack is a style hud. It was just what I needed to complete this look.

Look deeply into my eyes . . . . Named “Rainstorm Eyes” they’re a lovely SL19B gift from theMars. You get 6 shades of bom eyes along with huds for Catwa, Catwa HDPro, Lelutka Evo, and Genus. The huds work with the eyes for each of the heads. How cool is that?

SHOES!

Finishing off my look is the gorgeous Lilly shoes, one of many group gifts at StephaneL. The group join fee is $15L. The current gift is a $500L gift card. I’m not very good at math but even I can see that’s a pretty good deal. You’ll also find a couple of walls of older group gifts.

Outfit

Outfit – Seven Alena Top & Mini Skirt ($55L Thursday – still available as of this posting)

Hello hello, FabFam! I may look relaxed in this snapshot but I am anything but! As you all must know by now, The Second Life 19th Birthday is going strong and has 20 SIMS this time! It’s huuuuuge! And that means it has a ton of free gifts for us to collect and open. I am up to my pointy little ears in gifts, ya’ll! There are so many cool things to show off I don’t know where to start. So let’s just jump in!

This dress… I flat out love this dress! This is “Elena” from Salt and Pepper. The lace… the shine… it makes my heart happy. It’s just beautifully made, the lace is SO detailed and lovely, I just can’t get over it. Plus you get a full fatpack of colors for both the base fabric and the belt and sleeve caps. Salt and Pepper really knocked it out of the ball park with this gift.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy + Perky
  • Maitreya + Petite
  • Reborn

My new sandals are another big winner today. These are the “Enola” leather flats from Hilly Haalan, a designer we already love. The flats come with another huuuuge fatpack of options to change the feather, the chain, the beads and the body of the shoes. This is the kind of gift we always hope to get at a big event like SL19B! Thank you so much, Hilly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

The Second Life 19th Birthday Celebration runs until July 10th so you’ve got plenty of time to explore the whole event! And if you want a jump on some of the great gifts, check out these posts right here on FabFree. Here, and here, here here, here ( I hope I didn’t miss anyone…)

Here In This Minute

Here In This MinuteHappy weekend! My happy place is next to an ocean and I was psyched to put on something cute and free (which surprisingly was not a bikini) and spend some time there!

A Hunting We Will Go

Guys, I tried to do a hunt. If I’m hunting then you know it’s for something really really amazing. As we’ve discussed recently, I’m more of a wait-in-front-of-a-lucky-chair kind of a girl. But this hunt at Luas and Una is so worth it! Aline told us about it already here. There are little golden stars hidden around the sim (I had to get pretty close for them to rezz but maybe that’s just my laptop). You buy them for free, there is no group join required, and there are really lots of excellent prizes. I’m wearing Avery and it comes with a short version of the skirt also, as well as the belt and harness that I’m wearing. The fit is only for Maitreya. I’m not sure how long the hunt lasts, the signs don’t say, but trust me you don’t wanna miss this one.

But Still Glam

Glam Affair is part of today’s Fifty Linden Friday sale. It’s a lovely basic skin line with a bunch of different tones, all with or without brows. 50L today only. You know I can’t pass that up!

19 Years in the Making

19 Years in the Making

I’m back in bold and brights, and I’m in full-on celebration mode!  It’s time to dive into…GASP!  SL19B!

Early Access!

Ok, so it doesn’t actually start until tomorrow, but you can get into the ENORMOUS SL19B early if you join their free group.  You may want to nip in before the crowds get thickety thick!  This year, it’s bigger than ever with 20 whole regions filled to the seams with gorgeous gifts and awesome discounts.  To start off, here’s what I loved on my spin around the place:

  • FREE top by ViSion sized for Reborn, Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • FREE skirt by Stories & Co. sized for Maitreya, Legacy & Hourglass
  • FREE hair by Mina (I didn’t use the HUD to change the colour, so it’s pristine white…but there are rainbow hues to be had!)

There’s really so very much more.  All the gifts are free, and you don’t need a group to get them.

Here’s the list of all 400 participating shops and where to find them:  CLICK

Black is the New Orange

Fatal Fashion June GG

One of my favorite SL activities is shopping! It has been for a very long time. I love sales and events that lead me to shops I’ve never before visited. One of my latest discoveries was Fatal Fashion. I popped over a couple of weeks ago to pick up a weekend sale item. I saw the group gift wall there and thought the gifts looked pretty nice. The latest group gift loudly called my name. The $0L group join fee sealed the deal for me!

Black can be so Seductive

Dressing in black can be for mourning but personally I prefer it as a prelude to a dramatic look. (p.s. I prefer brighter colors for mourning). The latest group gift from Fatal Fashion (Free/Group is free to join) is this sexy top and skirt along with the boots and 2 bracelets in black and gold. It’s a curve hugging fit with nice detailing in lace & cut outs on the top. As you can see in the picture the boots are open toe & laced up the front. You will be noticed in this outfit so be prepared to maybe get a few IMs from guys!

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
