Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Are You a Good Girl?

Up From a Dream?

Are you a good girl?

It’s been a while since I posted a pretty free or low cost find for all of you amazing Fabfree Readers, and I’ve missed you! Real life has been pretty hectic for me this month. But I knew I had run across something special when I found this dress and pendant as part of the Good Girl or Bad Girl Hunt at Wicked.

You search for the little icon, buy it for just 2L and you get both this baby doll dress (which I think could double as a roleplay nightgown) and the beautiful glowing pendant. Somehow this ensemble gives me the impression that you could be either a good girl or a bad girl either one wearing it!

All the sizes you need in one box!

I was really pleased with the assortment of sizes this outfit came in. It is mesh (with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system body) but comes in lots of mesh body sizes as well. For your 2L spent at Wicked you’ll be getting:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Psysique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya Isis, and Venus

Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!

Buckled, Belted & Sling Backed

Snapshot_002Hello Fabulouses! Today I bring you news of a couple 70L EVANI finds at The Dressing Room and a FREE group gift pair of shoes by N-Core that you won’t want to miss out on.

The dress I am wearing today is EVANI’s Nikki and is available in three colours priced at 70L each at The Dressing Room.  EVANI is also offering the very cool belted halter at 70L as well that adds just a little bit of pizazz to the simple style of the dress.  You have a week left in this round of The Dressing Room before the items get switched out at the end of the month.

Ok, onto FREE SHOES news!  I know you were waiting for it 🙂  N-Core has a new group gift called Karen that is compatible with N-Core Xtreme Feet, Slink, Maitreya, TMP and Belleza.    Being that these beauties are black, I know these will be worn and worn again because it will go with so many of my outfits!  The group is 50L to join – WORTH IT!

Be Your Queen

Be Your Queen

The Femboy Hunt really captured my interest, as it features some terrific creators and beautiful prizes. I found that while creators were offering prizes that are geared toward the femboy demographic, several work great for us gals as well!

I took a stop by !Majestic! main-store and picked up the 2L Femboy Hunt prize there and was rewarded with this gorgeous Surprise Bitch Robe. The robe comes in two colors — the animal print shown, as well as a red that is not shown. The robe comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh. It is suitable for both female and femboy avatars. I did add on my Maitreya panties to make it suitable for sharing with you here on FabFree 😉 .

I took a quick look around the store and discovered that !Majestic! also had out a really fun and beautifully made FREE group gift as well! This Be My Queen headphone/crown set is FREE with your  FREE group membership and is a jewel fit for any queen! The details on it are superb!

Show Your Pride

Show Your Pride 2

One of the best things about Second Life is the diversity… and April marks the start of the Femboy Hunt. There are quite a few stores in Second life which are friendly to Femboy and LBGT fashion, one of which is Brocade Tiger. For this hunt in particular, Brocade Tiger is featuring a 2L gift that is not to be missed… these “Pride Blue Jeans” with their rainbow look and bedazzled back pockets. For just 2L and a little hunting time, these quality mesh jeans in all the standard sizes are well worth picking up. They even include a fantastic attached rainbow mesh belt.

Show Your Pride

I figured Astrid wouldn’t be happy unless I showed a little more pride than just the jeans… so I scoured the marketplace and looked for some proper jewelry, and managed to find a reasonably priced necklace at C3. You can get their Gay Pride Necklace for just 10L. I did find that though the marketing says it is unisex it required a bit of editing to get it to fit a male form. It wasn’t difficult with a bit of patience, though, as the shape of the cord is well done.

I’m out for now… but I’ve got my rainbow on! Show your pride too if you are so inclined with these fantastic items.

Hey, Shit Happens

Snapshot_002
Good evening FabFree Readers! I have returned tonight to show off a couple more of the The Love Pink Hunt prizes!

If you are ever having one of “those SL days” and need a reminder that sometimes shit just happens for no reason, MELONopolis can hook you up with a big neon lighted décor sign!  It’s a pretty cool piece to have in your inventory and would be a great addition to lots of different types of decorating to mix things up a bit!   All you need to do is locate the hidden pink heart icon at the MELONopolis store and pay it 2 little lindens.

You might notice my dress is also pink, and yes –  It is also a Love Pink Hunt item.  This lovely pink mesh dress with the bow on one shoulder is also just 2L, available inside the hidden Love Pink Hunt icon at Dollle.

Enjoy your evening!

Thrifty Finds

Snapshot_007Hi there Fabulouses! Guess who just released a new wearable demo in their marketplace store??!  Yep – Orange*Pekoe!  This sweet peach coloured Valentine Cardigan is available for just 2L as a wearable demo in unisex/adult/teen sizes, as well as a with or without the shirt option.  I am wearing it with a pair of my favourite new jeans (Addam’s Real Worn Out Jeans @ this round of Uber) and the Spencer Flats that I picked up at Reign this past weekend for The Saturday Sale price of 75L.  These cute tied flats are still available at the sale price as of tonight in case you missed them on the weekend.

I also wanted to mention the Aphorism Thrift Shop Décor items I have used in the set for my photo today.  These items are 50L per play at this round of The Gacha Garden.  If you play 20 times, you will be gifted with the Seeds of Inspiration prize which is the Reclaimed Wood Clock.  This clock actually tells time, and allows you to set your own timezone (or your partner’s if you need a cheat sheet!).

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A Minute

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A MinuteYou know I really enjoy this time of year, but it is freaking exhausting!  Are you all worn out too?  I feel like I just need to close my eyes around the ruckus for a minute lol.   Two more days to go!

I am stopping by the blog today to share news with you about a couple new free gifts I really like.  First, Due sent out this adorable hairstyle called Teeny for free as a group gift to their inworld VIPs.  This pack includes all the colour huds and seriously could not be any cuter than it is!  The Due group is 100L to join.

Aphorism recently released their new Knee Socks and with that, have placed out a limited edition holiday print as a free subscribe gift!  While I am not wearing a whole lot today to match my socks up to,  these socks do come with a texture change hud that allows you to change between several different colours and come in specific fits for Slink Physique/Hourglass, Maitreya (experimental, but works perfect on mine), and fitted.

Lingerie isn’t something I normally wear in SL as I am always running from shop to shop, but “WOW” when I came across this dainty bodysuit (Karla by Milk Tea) at The Cosmo Sales Room for 75L, I couldn’t pass it up!  Maybe I’ll stay in today 🙂

The beautiful Angel Christmas Tree you see in my photo is a free gift at Hanaya!  I just hit the vendor and it was sent to me, now I am not sure if you need to be a subscriber first or not, because I was already in it to begin with.  If the tree doesn’t get sent to you right away, subscribe (It’s free), and then hit it again 😉
