Late Shopper

On my journey to continue shopping for sales past the sale day, which I recently blogged about here, I stumbled upon [QE Designs], which currently has a dress and shoes in two bright colour packs for 75L each. These were on the Saturday sale a while back, and they are still available! I am not sure when they will go down, but they are a great deal. Go ASAP to get these packs as they will be gone soon. Each item includes a bright hud that includes bright rainbow colours, as well as white. You can change each individual parts of the dress and shoes to those bright colours. I just love all the pride deals this month because I can see myself wearing bright items any time of the year to show my pride. 🏳️‍🌈

Sizes Included (dress)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass

Sizes Included (shoes)

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Slink

Majer 2.0

The other gift I have for you today is this cute hairstyle, which is another group gift at FAGA. Their group is still free to join, but it will go back to a paid group at some point so jump on this offer now! This gift is the “Majer” hairstyle in an exclusive pack for VIPs only. Note that this is a different gift from the fatpack of this hairstyle that was formerly given as a group gift, which was blogged by Aline here. This gift includes new textures which come in bright-coloured ombres. So you need to get the new one even if you got the fatpack before because it has different textures! The same rules apply for their new Yaina hair exclusive pack group gift I blogged here and the exclusive Dori hairstyle exclusive pack group gift that Aline blogged here. Make sure you grab all 3 gifts if you are missing any. These are the steps to grab the new Majer hair gift for free:

  1. Join the FAGA group, which is currently free to join.
  2. Look for the Majer hair vendor in the store.
  3. Cam down to the “exclusive pack” sign under the vendor.
  4. Click that sign with your group tag active to grab the free hairstyle.

See you soon, FabFree!

Frilly & Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Hey FabFree! Sometimes a girl just wants to feel frilly and pretty in pink, even if it’s not my typical style. I set up a cute bedroom scene to match my mood and the cute new finds I have to show you today.

Cute Finds for 25L Tuesday

25L Tuesday is on today! Paper.Sparrow set their sale items out early, and they usually keep it out for the week. Double win! I love this because I am horrible at following daily sales. I just forget about them and miss them most times, but not at Paper.Sparrow. They have this adorable night shirt and bag for only 25L each! The 25L version of the shirt comes in black and white, and the bag comes in white, grey, and black. See below for a closeup of these cute sale items! Go soon to get them, as this is a limited-time sale.

Sizes Included (night shirt):

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

Coming Soon

I also have a few pretty goodies from SL19B that you can see in my close-up. These are all totally free gifts.

  • The lovely lipstick is an applier gift from Ives Beauty @ SL19B. It includes 8 lip tones for Lelutka Evo, Lelutka EvoX, and Genus heads.
  • My pretty earrings are the free gift from Poeme @ SL19B. These come in several lovely colours.
  • My face skin is the gift from Purple @ SL19B, and it comes in a full fatpack of tones. This is made for Lelutka EvoX, and it includes ear skins and neck fixes.

Pretty Poo

Now head back over to Paper.Sparrow, where you will find the funny “Pretty Poo” decor air freshener bottles that cost 75L per colour. You can see how I used these to decorate my room in my scene below. These are the “Vanilla” and “Strawberry” versions. These will help you smell so nice in SL!

Coming Soon

Have a wonderful day, FabFree!

Weekend on the French Riviera

french_007
Heyo Fabbies and happy weekend!  Or should I say Salut!  Ca va?

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring weekend.  I am out here just sipping some wine on the French Riviera where the Bohemian style is all the rage right now.  In fact, it is all the rage throughout Europe!  Just colors and frills and fun sexy outfits!  I think with all the war and pandemic and everything else, the mood of peace and love so exemplified by the Hippies back in the 60’s and since then is on everyone’s mind.  Mind?  I don’t mind, it’s my preferred style, bohemian gal that I am!  So when I saw the Saturday Sale and Belle Epoque, well, I just had to run down and grab it.  I want to be in style while I sip my wine like a fashionista!

The Saturday Sale

This is a bit time sensitive, so if you love this outfit and want to see all the colors it comes in for only 75L per color, you will need to hit Belle Epoque today.  I’m not sure how long they keep their Saturday Sales up for.  This outfit fits Maitreya and Legacy only but gosh all the colors are stunning.  I had a difficult time trying to choose and finally went with my signature pink.  I can’t go wrong with pink… ever.  lol

No group is needed to get the sale price, so run on over and style up!  I’m *so* glad I saw this and grabbed it.  I am absolutely in love!

My table, chair and wine (and pose) are another 75L Nextup from Le Poppycock.  I love that I can wear the props and they pose me and so I have no need to rez, so I can use them anyplace (like I did!  lol)!

Praying for Time

imagine_001

And it’s hard to love
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much, too much, too late
Well, maybe we should all be praying for time
Praying for Time – George Michael

Heya faboos!

Been hearing some horrible stories about war crimes being committed by the Russian armies and it just saddens me so much, how cruel we humans can be to one another.  We are supposed to be the most intelligent advanced species on the planet, but tell me, what other species is cruel to one another? Makes me question how intelligent and advanced we truly are.  So today I have donned my peace hat and am holding a light up in prayer, hoping for these atrocities to end.  It is the innocent who suffer in a war, and that is so wrong.

Meanwhile I’ve been working on this a bit longer than I would like, I’ve been under the weather but spent much of the last few days snuggled with the little man (Rocky, my Chi) and sleeping/watching tv and I have a bit more energy so I am tackling this again.

Let’s do this!

My super cute and bohemian peace hat was a marketplace find by Libelula World and it was free to scoop up!  One size fits all of course.

My top and jeans are the latest free group gift by Shanti (did you know that Shanti is Sanskrit for Peace?).  The group is 99L to join and you can grab several other group gifts as well, along with a monthly 100L that all VIP get.  You’ll also get half off all new releases so you do get your 99L worth (you basically get it right back via the gift card.  Pretty nifty huh!).  This outfit (both top and jeans) fits:

  • Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Fine
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

My awesome pose with the sparkler is from Le Poppycock, it is another of their Nextup goodies that I have been grabbing lately.  The machines are only 75L a play and there are endless poses.

Anyhoo, better wrap this up.  It’s taken me far too long!

Snapshot_028

Hey faboo gang!

It’s a rainy day here in my real life world, a day to crank up those fairy lights and delve into some fun second life fashion!

I love to find designers who are *not* on the big designer list and introduce them to everyone.  There are a helluva lot of good designers out there that you never hear about and who don’t even get a chance because they are overshadowed by those designers you *do* hear about every day!  I like to share these “mom and pop” designers, the small businesses of the grid to show them some support.

This time around I have found a cute place called It’s Me.  They have some freebies and dollarbies, but my eye caught this outfit which was still only 29L, I love the funky pattern on the overalls. It also comes with cute sneakers to match (not shown). This cute set which has both the top and the pants fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

My pose is another cute 75L Nextup find from Le Poppycock.  I love that you wear the props and they pose you, so you have nothing to rez.  This pose comes with both the tree and the dove, as well as the pose, of course.

I Need a Pig Here!

Modern Wonderland

Hey gang!

This outfit reminded me of a modern sort of Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.  See how she sits surveying her royal domain?  Wouldn’t you like to play Red Queen too (Off with their heads!!!)?  I’m here to tell you how!  Just put your feet up on your pig, call in your fat boys, grab a dwink and lets go!

The Sexy Red and Black Dress

I found this dress at a shop called Mia Styles.  It is a free group gift and the group is free to join.  It fits:

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Slink

Remember, You Can Tune a Piano But…

Now the pose and the piano come from Le Poppycock, where a lot of us have been stalking lately, because she literally has a room of Next Up machines to play with more cute and fun poses than you can shake a stick at! (pictures herself standing in the room shaking a stick at the machines but finally giving up)  The machines are all 75L or less a play (this one is 75L) and one of my very favorite things about these poses is that you can use them anywhere, because you wear the prop and it poses you, so you do not have to rez them! (does happy dance!)  So am I wearing the piano or is the piano wearing me?  One of life’s great mysteries my friends, but whichever way, it works like a charm!

Did you eat my tarts???

Nice and Cozy!

cozyfest_004

Hey gang!

Hope you are all staying warm and enjoying some cozy time during this frigid (where I am anyway!) January!

Like the other ladies, I too have been stalking Cozyfest and seen all the gorgeousness there.  I brought something to show you from there too, this is a 50L find from Asteria, this sexy little number felt perfect with Valentine’s day coming up so quickly, so I grabbed it.  The pieces are mix and match and each part is separate and 50L each (bra, panties and shirt), including a HUD with ten coordinating colors for each too.  This set fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Now maybe the other girls are good getting cozy on their own, but I love a little four legged baby to snuggle up to.  This cutie is from Foxwood and the set of Doodle pups is on sale right now for 75L.  Not sure how long it will be on for, so I would hurry if you want to grab a little sweet pup!  They are truly adorable.

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Wintry Fun Deals (and more snowball fights!)

snowball fight

Hey gang!

I’m still out here being the trouble maker that I am.  Mainly because I found *the* most funnest (its a word!!!!!  lol) thing ever!  Fluffy Stuff has, well, basically a snowball fight that you can buy and it’s still on sale from SoKawaii Sunday yesterday for only 65L!  Not only does it give you some cute poses, but when you go into mouselook and aim, you can throw snowballs at things and people and anything!  There was no one around so Santa got hit quite a few times.  I really got sidetracked playing with this.  Lots of fun!

I’ve also still been stalking The Arcade, where I got another pair of these super cute fluffy boots from Gild (mens and women sizes, one size fits each) for only 50L a play and also this awesome jacket and leggings by Amias, which is 75L a play.  I’m wearing the Maitreya size.

Again, time sensitive so I can get y’all that awesome sale at Fluffy Stuff.  Not sure how long it will be up for though, so if you want some wintery fun (it really is!) run over and grab this while it’s on sale!

Hey gang!

We have a lot of fun here on the Fab Free Blog, but today I would like to get serious for a moment.

We know cancer is evil (I refuse to capitalize it), and that anyone can get it, even our beloved fur legged babies.  But did you know cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs?   It is estimated that 1 in 3 domestic dogs will develop cancer, which is the same incidence of cancer among humans.

So when I popped over to Foxwood for something totally unrelated, I saw the story of Ellie, who belongs to the girl who runs Foxwood.  Ellie is her Golden Retriever and Ellie has cancer.  I have lost two out of three of my Goldens to cancer, as well as my beloved Shih Tzu, Tara.  So I know the story all too well, and it is an issue that is very close to home for me.  I never had the chance to help my babies, but Ellie has a chance to fight and we can help her.

The three goldens in my photo, are a set that you can get at Foxwoods for only 75L (they are adorable too!!!  I love the one I can carry around and I’ve had three people say they wanted one too when they saw me carrying her!) and all proceeds go to help Ellie.  We all love the sales and we love the cute sl pets, this is a chance to enjoy both while helping a real pet have a chance at fighting the evil known as cancer.  (I have lost both my parents to it as well).

I’m not sure how long the sale is up for, I reached out but haven’t heard back.  I checked a little while ago and it is still up.

I hope each and every one of you will stop by Foxwood for this cause.  Cancer *can* be beaten, for both humans and our furbabies!

In just ten days Tara will be gone five years and my heart still breaks every single day (and someday Jian will make us a cute set of Shih Tzus so that I can have her with me at least in second life) (I keep requesting it!).  Her and Sumner (my Golden boy I lost to cancer) are pictured below.  I never got to have human kids, and honestly I raised these two from babies and I couldnt have loved them more if they had been human.  They were my kids.

These are the faces of canine cancer, the ones we must fight for.

Sumner (above) lost to Hemangiosarcoma at the age of 9 on 8.29.2004

Tara aka Tee (below) lost to Lymphoma of the intestines at the age of 12 on 11.25.2016
