Sun, Fun, and Free

Well hey again, FabFam! My real life has been pretty chaotic here lately. All good things but just… wow… a lot! And it isn’t getting any less busy. But I will always have time for FabFree and you guys, the best readers in Second Life! And I’ll make time for great deals and freebies, especially if it means lounging around the Sea-side being smexy!

My latest find if from QE Designs and I picked it up at the awesome Second Life 19th Birthday Shop and Hop. There are so many free gifts… so.many.gifts. this year! [QE] alone is giving out a ton of gifts too. In fact, my new outfit here isn’t even the main gift. It’s in a box of extra gifts. This is the “End of Summer Set” top( Part of a Bikini), shorts and flip flops. Each piece comes with a matching HUD for three choices of color/patterns. I love this summery floral best but they are all super cute. If you haven’t hit the Shop and Hop yet this is just one great reason to head over!

West Coast Dreaming

West Coast Dreaming

Well, I’ve found my way back to the beach, though this time I’m thinking about the West Coast.  There’s something refreshing and somewhat unexpected (at least for me) to head off in a car and drive for seven days until I see mountains.  Then, beyond them, large swathes of driftwood-covered beaches, tall pines, and fresh air.  It’s like all the fun of sun-baked beaches without the possibility of becoming a straight-up lobster.

Happy Anniversary!

LSR are celebrating their anniversary right now, and they happen to have a new group gift.  This (rather skimpy) top and skirt can be worn separately and come with loads of different tie-dyed options (and other!) in the HUD.  To get yours, plus the bajillions of other gifts and lucky board prizes, just join the LSR group for 99L and head upstairs to their gift area.  You’ll have a whole new wardrobe in no time!

Sizes

  • Erika
  • Legacy

Dragon and blossom

Dragon and blossom

Hello FabFam! This is ging to be a fast oe since we don’t have much time at all to take advantage of it! SO hold on… here we go…

If you don’t already know, the wonderful group, Historical Hunts (the website has hunt prize pics) is running their ‘Silk Road’ again this June and we are running out of time quickly to do the hunt. The Silk Road is your hunt for all things exotic and this year’s theme is Japan. There’s silk and kimonos and cherry blossoms galore! And of course a dragon or two!

We are showing off Amazing Creations free gifts for the Silk Road today. Gabe is wearing the ‘Black & Red Dragon’ shirt for the men and I have the lovely ‘Rock and Droll’ shirt dress on. The dress comes with two patterns and a HUD to change the color of the skirt if you’d like. The watercolor prints are just so pretty and the silk texture is beautiful. The only bad thing is all the gifts travel on down the road on June 26th. And that’s coming up! So hurry hurry, my dears!

Ebullient

Ebullient

I totally want to be the person who bursts into a room with bubble gun that blows out heart-shaped bubbles.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to be that person with the never ending supply of weirdness and ebullience?  She’s always got gum in her purse, and a plan hatching for shenanigans, and she does it all with style.

Get in Now!

A little birdie told me that Masoom’s group is currently free to join!  I’m not entirely certain for how long, so get in while you can!  There are some really awesome group gifts, a few of which I’m currently showing you:

  • Free top and skirt in both red and pink sized for Kupra, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Reborn
  • Free belly chain sized for Freya, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy
  • Free shoes sized for Freya, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy
  • Free gloves sized for Belleza, Slink, Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy

There are a whole bunch more, too, and all excellent quality and super cute.

Here’s the group join key (just copy and paste it into your local chat): secondlife:///app/group/e402ddb4-f2ac-2a93-d637-111e26f22084/about

How to Keep Cool

How to Keep Cool

Time for bright, cheerful and extremely sugary vibes!  It’s supposed to be super super hot here tomorrow – something like 40 degrees C, so I’m pre-empting the heatwave with some sweet shaved ice before I wilt entirely.  I’m sure it won’t work, but at least I feel like I’m doing something about it!

Rawr!

The latest group gift at Belle Epoque has just made it’s appearance, and it’s put me in an excellent mood.  It comes in two parts, so they can be worn separately and mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe.  Some of the other textures in the HUD are just absolutely adorable too, like foxes, watermelons and floral patterns – a must have.  To get yours, join the Belle Epoque group for 10L, then click on the vendor – pick up the other awesome group gifts while you’re there too, they’re ah-mah-zing!

  • Legacy

Keep cool, Fabbies!

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
  • SLink

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…)

The Call of the Waves

The Call of the Waves

The beach is calling!  Figuratively, of course.  Wouldn’t it be weird if a pile of sand suddenly called you, and you looked at your phone and mumbled “I don’t recognise this number…” and you pick up, and the beach is all like “heyyyy buddy…come splash in the waves!” and you just leave your normal life behind to become a beach person forever?  Um.  I don’t know what just happened there.  But…we’re going to the beach!

5,6,7,8!

Vanilla Bae have some big sales going on this weekend (they call them bake sales…heheheh).   Anyway, as the sales are happening they’ve also put out a new group gift in the middle.  These leggings are inspired by cheer workouts (the side says 5-6-7-8) and come in both tight and loose versions.  The Vanilla Bae group is currently 50L to join, and there are a few other group gifts to pick up too.  This gift is most likely going to disappear after the weekend, so don’t delay!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Still Shopping and Hopping

I found a cute top and phone to go with my new leggings at SL19B.  Putting together a look is the thing that I have to most fun with when it comes to blogging (That and apparently rambling about who knows what).  So, I stopped by the Masoom booth to grab this little cropped top as well as the Boutique 187 booth for this cell phone to celebrate SL’s bday.  Both are free, and there’s no need to join a group to get them!

I wonder if the beach knows ice cream’s phone number…

Memento Mori

Memento Mori

Happy Friday, Fabbies!  I’m heading back to my roots of dark, gothy vibes.  I’ve often ruminated on the fact that I started off my SL as Ms. Dark Cloud, swathing myself in black.  It always makes me giggle a bit, since really – that is the antithesis of who I am.  I’m the one who bursts into giggles at the mere mention of sausage (don’t ask), or tosses glitter about with wild abandon.  Anyway, it just goes to show – you really can be exactly who you feel like being at any given time in Second Life.  And I think that’s pretty great.

Dark Lady

I put this look together with a few awesome freebies I picked up at SL19B.  Now, we’ll be covering the event fairly extensively, as I know that not everyone is going to go to every single booth and pick up every gift and…gasp…unpack them.  So, in the hopes you’ll see something you like, we’ll do a general smattering of lovely free gifts, and give you ideas of just what you can do with them.  So…here’s my look:

  • FREE hair by Ade in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE hat by Psycho Barbie with 13 different textures in the HUD
  • FREE Lipstick by Alaskametro with an Omega Applier and BOM layers

SL19B is running until July 10th, so there’s plenty of time to check it all out.

Who will you be today?

A Few of my Favourite Things

A Few of My Favourite Things

Hey Fabbies!  I’ve got a quick one for you today, so I’ll zip my virtual lips and hop right in!

First Stop

As you may have heard, I’m a sucker for a good tee.  I collect them both in RL and SL, so this cute one by Bipolar was right up my alley.  The even better part is that it’s completely free!  This pride-themed top comes in two versions, and to get it, all you have to do is join the free Bipolar group.  You’ll find this gift right out the front of the shop.  Bipolar is only free for a while longer, so make sure you join it now!

Sizes

  • Kupra Kups
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Second Stop

I was quite excited when I heard that Sweet Thing had a new group gift out.  It’s been kinda quiet on their side of the world recently, so I jumped at the opportunity to get this super cute headband.  Come on, you’re mixing two of my fave themes:  cats and celestial!  I couldn’t possibly say no.  To get it, join their free group, and head over to the group gift wall.  There are a bunch of other fun gifts there while you’re at it!

Have an awesome end to your weekend, FabFree!
