What light through yonder window breaks?

Coming soon to Fab Free

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!

-William Shakespeare

I am feeling a 21st-century Romeo and Juliet vibe from this post! I want to shout, “Oh Romeo, where art thou?” from outside my apartment’s balcony! V-day is over but as the Fab team has observed, love is still in the air…

The Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat

Hello Fab Free, and Happy Weekend! I’ve got a quickie for you this Saturday morning that you’re going to love, so let’s get right to it. Jian has out the cutest Santa hats as group gifts. There are two versions, one with a puppy peeking out from under the hat, and the one I’m wearing with a kitten under the hat. Each hat has a touch menu with several color choices for the main part of the hat, and several fur textures for the kitten or puppy. Jian’s store group is free to join, and you can also still pick up their previous group gift.

Next up, I couldn’t resist sharing with you Cae’s Saturday Sale jewelry set. The beautifully detailed “Jingle” set includes pretty bow and jingle-bell earrings with a matching necklace. The set has a texture change hud with quite a few choices for the gemstones in the bow, and several metal options for the metal parts of the jewelry. At just 75 linden, you don’t want to miss this perfect for the holidays set at Cae.

That’s all for now, go get some!

Aroma vs. Shopping Therapy

Aroma vs. Shopping Therapy

Hey Fab Free!  I’m feeling the earthy vibes today, possibly because I spent a lot of time digging and planting.  I’m ready to see the fruits of my labour come forth through the earth and make the world a bit more colourful.  After all the hard work, it’s time for a bit of pampering and prettifying of myself, I think.  Or perhaps some shopping therapy… Don’t shopping therapy and aromatherapy yield the same results?

Rouly Time!

Rouly is treating shoppers to a fun sale, where everything in the store is priced at just 75L.  I picked up this cute top and skirt there (and I’m not really willing to tell you how much else…eep!), and I think the combo looks just fetching!  There are lots of great deals on jeans, tops, jackets, swimwear and a bunch of other stuff too.  Go check it out soon though, because the 75L sale at Rouly is only running until May 27th!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Freya (Top Only)

Now, who wants some lavender oil?

Abbey Road

Abbey Road

Hey Fab Free! I have a really awesome event to share with you today! Well, it’s more like three events in one! Media SL is sponsoring three events in 1 sim and they are basically all taking place in one huge shopping plaza. The events are called the Versus event, the Look Event and the Last Chance event. I will be showing you an outfit I created using gifts from this three-in-one event and other group gifts and sales I found around the sim. Through this look, I was able to channel my inner John Lennon. Let’s Go!

Free Gifts Galore

All three events discussed above have free gifts available, which you can get by joining the free Media SL group. Here is the group join URI, which you can copy into your chat in SL to join the group.

secondlife:///app/group/92d327e1-ec18-698d-c949-22e4d89401f2/aboutsecondlife:///app/group/92d327e1-ec18-698d-c949-22e4d89401f2/about

To get the gifts, just keep running along one side and you will be able to grab them all that way. You are looking for the “Designer Gift” signs in front of the shops on the sim.  In addition to these gifts, there are also lucky chairs set out over the entire event so watch out for your letter and you may get lucky and win even more gifts! I am wearing some of the ones I grabbed from the event, including the John Lennon glasses from A&D and a lipstick applier gift from Unique Obsessions.

Sabine

While I was at the event, I saw that Dreams had this amazing Sabine top fatpack on sale for 75 Linden. I had to have it- it’s gorgeous! It’s inside their satellite store which is located at the Versus Event. Dreams also has out a pair of free pants for men as part of the Versus event.

The Jeans

You can pick up the jeans I am wearing at the Versus Event by joining the free Phoenix store group and clicking the ripped jeans group gift at their stall. The jeans come in three denim shades.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic (Curvy & Fine)
  • The Mesh Project (The Shops Classic)

In addition to this group gift, Phoenix also has out a free dress as their gift for the Versus Event. Aline recently blogged that dress here.

Have fun, Fab Free!

Sweeter Than Sweet

Sweeter Than Sweet

Alright, I’ll admit it, I’m almost as big a sucker for sweets as I am for freebies, which makes this time of year particularly dangerous. Hi there Fab Free’rs, I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of more or less Valentine’s Day themed goodies to be had around the grid. I’ve been sneaking some pre-Valentine’s Day chocolates while wearing the latest group gift from Boubouki and the gorgeous Saturday Sale offer from Cae. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and the credits will be listed at the end as always.

Cae

I’m starting with the Saturday Sale item at Cae because it’s of course a limited time offer. This gorgeous “Ayana” jewelry set is just 75 linden. The vendor will also allow you to send this necklace and earrings set as a gift. The earrings and necklace are both able to be sized via touch menu and there is a color change hud. The hud lets you pick from several beautiful presets for the gemstones as well as the metal parts of the jewelry.

Boubouki

As I mentioned above, my pretty red crop top is a free group gift at Boubouki. At this time the Boubouki group is free to join and there are 2 group gifts available. This red top has some pretty red detailing at the bottom hem, which I completely failed to show in my photo (sorry!) and comes in several sizes. To get yours you’ll need to go to Boubouki and join the free-to-join group, then pay the gift vendor 1 linden, you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden, and your gift will be delivered to you.

Sizes Included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Venus, Isis), Maitreya Lara

I’ll watch you on the slopes from the window, thanks :)

Hiya Fabulouses!  It’s true, I’ve been on a few ski trips in my life, but not one of them actually required skis!  I am more of a “Enjoy the lodge” kind of a girl, all snuggled up nice and warm.

Perhaps in something like the Dead Dollz Apres Ski Gacha Set at Epiphany!

The Apre Ski Gacha Set by Dead Dollz at Epiphany allows you to collect the RARE onesie, cardigan and socks, all in beautiful wintery colours for just 75L a play.  I adore the little pom poms on the socks, and I think the cardigan will be great with other outfits too!  There are no duds in this sweet set – good luck!

Sometimes I like coffee more than people

FabFree: Sometimes I like coffee more than people

Good morning FabFree!  Today I am going to be telling you about a free pose set by Lyrium (one of my favourite pose makers!!) and Nerido’s gacha offering at The Arcade for December.

Since we are all here on the FabFree Blog… I’ll start with the free news!

You might notice that I use Lyrium Poses in my photographs quite a bit, and I was very excited to see that inworld group members of The Pose Fair group can pick up the Coffee Break Pose Pack that includes 5 poses and the steaming coffee cup prop as a free group gift at The Pose Fair!  This group is free to join, and as mentioned in a recent previous post [HERE], there are several gifts all over the event at different displays!

Rene Set by Nerido @ The Arcade

The Rene Set by Nerdo at The Arcade is just 75L per play and you can mix and match to make up the casual and comfy outfit shown.  There are 15 commons and 3 rares and I am pretty confident you could probably make a whole outfit in a handful of plays mixing up colours since there are only three pieces.  Good luck!

Early Bird

FabFree: Early Bird

I always wished I was an early bird.  I wonder what that silent hour is like before everyone else gets up with their daily shenanigans and Mom demands.  The hour you can peek in at little fuzzy heads still quiet and half smiling in their sleep, eat a whole waffle to yourself without the dog begging for a bite, enjoy a cup of tea without it getting cold… OMGosh, take a shower without little fingers under the door or snack requests!  I’m not sure I would recognize the decor of my house before the storm of toys and school backpacks and solo socks.   It’s probably the best hour of the day, and I imagine that if I could have dragged by butt out of bed before the dog was licking my face and ordering me up,  I would have been wearing a comfy outfit similar to this.

Comfy Cutie Pie

For the Saturday Sale at Lybra (which runs all week!), you can pick up the Cutie Pie Sock Pack with 10 different textures for 75L, and the Ariana Sweaters at 75L each too.  Along with this offer, there is a 1L white sweater with
“Lybra” across the front of it, which is what I’m wearing.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya
  • Signature Alice

Have you been awake for that hour?  What’s it like? 😀
