A Touch of Crystal Magic

A Touch of Crystal Magic
It’s that time of the year for one of my favourite events!  The Crystal Heart Festival is here – complete with magic, sparkles, and about 40 million Sailor Moon references.  It’s always an exciting event to wander around, because there are loads of pretty creations to drool over.  If you’re not in the mood to spend any Lindens though, I’ve got some great news – plenty of freebies to be had!

Space Girl

Everything kawaii, sweet and sparkly is what really attracts me to The Crystal Heart Festival year after year, but I also do have a special place in my heart for Sailor Moon since it was such a big thing when I was in High School.  You’d often find me singing “Fighting Evil by Moonlight…” while wondering exactly why the girls were always dressed as sailors.  Anyway, you don’t need to join a group to pick up the lovely free gifts at The Crystal Heart Festival, just click on the little pink heart-shaped boxes at the stalls (most will have one, but not all) and then revel in the cuteness within.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Hair by Love in 12 fantasy colours and an RGB input HUD
  • FREE Skirt by Loki sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE floating animated orb by Petrichor (it’s soooo mesmerizing)
  • FREE shoes by Exia sized for Maitreya and Legacy

The Crystal Heart Festival just opened, so it’s quite busy at the moment.  If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – it’s running until August 27th

Have fun!

Hey Fab Crew! Welcome to the start of the weekend at last! Now I know weekends are awesome but you know what makes them even more awesome?  Discovering a New-To-Me designer! I stumbled upon Blackbird Lace today and I couldn’t be happier. Such nice designs and really beautiful builds. What more could you ask for? How about nine lucky boards/chairs AND a wall full of current and past Group Gifts?  I hope you said yes because that’s what we got here!

I picked out this sweet full outfit set, “Adley” from the past group gifts to show you today because it pinged all the Summer feels. I love the bright happy print and blue and yellow are so classic together. Plus you really do get the full set – the mini dress, the heels and the cute bag! Perfect for a Summer stroll.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

It’s a very drab dreary day here in the Real world today. Everything is rainy and drizzly so I need some sun! Even if it’s “just” my newest little summer sundress. 

This is the “Karen Dress” from Dreams and isn’t it a lovely sunshine yellow!? The crocheted look is so delicately done and shows off just enough without reveling too many secrets. But you might want to find some pretty sunny yellow panties to wear with it, if you catch my drift. 😉 Plus, if yellow isn’t your thing, the included HUD will let you pick one of twelve other summery colors.

Karen is the current gift up for the Teleport HUB group over at Dreams. Just wear your tag and slap that board! The Teleport HUB Group is a measly little 10L to join and then you get access to hundreds of great free gifts all over the Grid. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to pick up the FabFree Group gift for free as well!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Good evenin’ Fab Crew! Have you ever looked at something and thought, “Yeah… that’s okay. Cute enough.”  But then you really look at it and think, “WOW, how did I miss that? This is so so cool!”  Maybe it’s me… Anyway, I have two items for this post, one you’ve already seen but I couldn’t resist showing again and one I almost tossed out because it was ‘just another mini’. Both of these items are from the Dubai Third Anniversary round.

First is my hair. This is No_Reason from No_Match and our adorable Cre showed it off in her post here. I saw it and thought, “Browns… I don’t need brown hair,” But I unpacked it anyway and saw one of the browns was kinda auburn. I popped it on clicked ‘edit’ and then changed the color from basic white to a more orange color. And Bingo! Red hair!  I’m saying all this because with a little easy fiddling this Freebie was just right for me when I had thought it wasn’t at all. It goes to show ya, don’t pass up a free gift until ya mess around with it. You might miss out on something cool. Well, that and trust Cre, she knows what she’s doin’ 😉

Second, is my lovely new mini, the “Medea” dress from Flirt. When I unpacked it I was a little ‘meh’ about it. Then it rezzed fully and I took a closer look. The pink ‘splashes’ are gorgeous branches of cherry blossoms! The pattern reminds me of the old paintings on silk in Japanese art. The vibrant contrast of the delicate pink and white on the ink black background is really stunning. And the workmanship in the dress is simply beautiful. And to think I almost passed it by.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

Hello FabFree! No, I’m not off on vacation or going anywhere. (Haha yer stuck with meeee) But, dang, I have the “Travel Wannas”. Don’t y’all? We’vev had to put off two years of trips now and it’s so disappointing. So I guess I’ll just have to pretend on the Grid. When I saw the super cute ‘travel’ pattern on PGR’s gift over at the #Hashtag event I knew I’d be off to adventure somewhere… even if it’s just in my head.

#PGR or Pretty Girls Rock, is a new to me designer but I am so happy to have discovered them. This little mini is the “After 5” dress and it can be yours for just one little Linden. The “After 5” comes in a fatpack of five color/patterns, each one just as cute as the next. Just pop over to the #Hashtag shopping event, do some shopping and grab alllll the gifts that range from 0 to 15L. 

The #Hastag Event runs until July 31.

… all among the bloomin’ heather

... all among the bloomin' heather

Hey There FabFree! I am so happy to have made it to the weekend, didn’t this week just fly by? I am ready for some Grid time! One happy delight, just as I popped on this evening was receiving this gorgeous dress from the Midnight Mania boards over at Lunaria. I really got to know this designers work during the Fabulous Enchanted Forest Hunt and I was so glad I did. The clothes from Lunaria are just as enchanting as the decore.

Take this dress – “Fainche”. I am in love with it. The details and build are just as perfect as you can ask for and I love the deep greens and copper. It’s topped off with the included circlet in copper and agate and jade stones. It’s just magical. To get your own little bit of magic, just join the free Lunaria Group and slap that Midnight Mania board. There are currently three boards all loaded with beautiful things for us.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I got another happy surprise when I popped over to No_Match today. This sleek sexy hair is called “No_Thorn” and it’s a free gift for everyone, no group needed. Now the hair comes with a skinny headband that you can change the color off via HUD. But I slipped my new circlet over it. The gift includes a HUD of twenty basic colors, 2 choices for bangs and twenty colors for the headband.

As with all free gifts and Midnight Mania boards, the designers can change or remove them at anytime. So hurry hurry to add these two awesome items to your closet!

Speechless in the Sun

Speechless in the Sun

Happy Friday FabFree!  After a long week I’m totally ready for a few days of rest and relaxation in the sunshine.  I’m so tired, in fact, that I am at that point of having a hard time stringing sentences together – so instead, I’ll just stand in the sunshine and let the rays work their magic.

It’s Free!

In my meanderings, I stopped over at Evani since they have an item out for the 7 Day Sale.  While I was there I noticed that they’ve also got a free gift at the display out for everyone  – no group join required.  This top and skirt is a good summery option for hot days when you still want to look super cute.  It comes with a great customizing HUD so you can change all the different parts to a whole host of lovely shades.  Plus, the top and bottom can be worn separately.  I assume this outfit is only around during the 7 day sale, so don’t delay!

So I ask you, what do you do when even the grid is Summer time hot?  Well, you grab a tall cool glass of lemonade and just accept… ya look hawt!

My lovely new dress is from Indigenous and it’s a cool 1L as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt. Can you believed the Hunt is celebrating it’s 11th year!?  This is one successful Hunt and it’s no wonder when you get great designers to hide such gorgeous prizes like this “Lemonade” dress.

It think it’s just the thing for my new dress.
