Imperfection is Key

Imperfection is Key

In the 90’s, it was always super important to me that my hair was absolutely flat and straight.  No “pouffiness” here, thank you very much!  As time went on, I learned to embrace a bit of the wild curl and the untamed mane.  Though my hair today can hardly be considered untamed, I know that back in the day the little flip up would have driven me mad.  Nowadays, I like a bit of madness and imperfection!

Sweet Bonbons

There’s a new group gift over at Bonbon!  This cute hairdo is free for members of the Bonbon group.  To get in on this flipped ends goodness, just join for 99L.  There are a bunch of fun gifts on the wall there, making the fee quite worth it.  With this style, the option to remove the bangs as well as one errant strand is up to you.  This look comes in a full fatpack of colours as well!  Cute!

Pass the Salt

Salt & Pepper have also updated their gift for the SLFO group.  This little top comes in 12 different satiny shades which you can dress up or down to your heart’s content!  The SLFO group is free to join, making this little top completely free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

Imperfection is key, I always say!

Miss Caroline is to blame for this amazing galpal gathering for The Liquid Lunch Date. She so cleverly persuaded me to get out of my bubble and interact with other humans. I can’t thank her enough for it either because this picture is worth a billion words that sing to my heart! It marks my official welcome into the blogger’s circle that I have craved to be in for 3 years now.
Aline is the sweetest woman I’ve been honored to meet, her running the FabFree group and blog must be two full-time jobs in itself. She does it with ease and grace I am honored she took a chance on me.
Pru gosh between her and rainbows/butterflies, I wouldn’t know why anyone would pick rainbows or butterflies! Pru has always been so amazing with her photos and friendship with me, that I couldn’t ask for a better idol to look up too.
Caroline is a loving, out of the box type woman who has always had kind loving words to share with me and is very helpful with everything she does. She told me about the MadPea Float and I was flabbergasted and needed it asap! She brought me right to it and She has never failed to be nothing but a kind, loving friend who the group would have a hole in if she wasn’t here.

Only Juli was missing from our little blogger gathering – but we’ll get her in there next time!

Let’s GAB about this free swimsuit I’m wearing from Dead Dollz, it has a very lovely tropical vibe with bright colors (GREEN) featuring some cute Flamingos that are perfect for this summer. You can get it free at the SecondLife Birthday 17 Shop & Hop and time is almost running out so make sure you get all your lovely gifts and celebrate!

Silene Swimsuit Fits:

  • Maitreya

Next up is this amazing free group gift from MadPea Rainbow Float that comes with poses for singles and couples. Past gifts are available as well with their free group, so I recommend you get there and get your beach on with some immeasurable friends and have some relaxation in the sun.

Make sure you check all the credits for additional Fab Finds!!

Movie Night

Movie Night

This pic gives me vibes of going to see a movie.  You know, the moment between buying tickets and walking into the darkened theatre with your chosen snacks… though I’m not sure how many movie theatres give you flowery ice cream nowadays.  The thing is, I do miss the whole “going to the movies” experience that seems to have been taken away from us over the last few months. I don’t think I’ll take it for granted ever again…

Top Up

There’s a new group gift at Osmia in order to celebrate their anniversary!  You can get this pretty and versatile cropped blouse (which comes in 12 different colours) by joining the Osmia group for free.  You’ll also find a bunch of other gifts while you’re there too, as well as a 50% off sale to celebrate.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Bag It!

My cross body bag is the latest group gift from Magnoliac, and it pairs very well with the top, I think.  You can size it quite easily by clicking on it, and it comes with an HUD to change it’s colour to match your outfit.  The Magnoliac group is 75L to join and there are a few other gifts to pick up while you’re there.

Do you miss going to the movies?

Lavender’s Blue

Lavender's Blue

I won’t go on another rant about how much I love lavender, but I’m really having to bite my tongue right now!  The fields!  The bouquet!  The dress!  Oooh, it’s all proving too much for my sensitive little heart.  Swoon!

The Truth

Some say the Truth hurts, I say it doesn’t when we’re talking about their awesome hair!  The latest VIP group gift from Truth has made it’s appearance, and it’s so pretty that I could cry (tears of joy, obvs).  As always with Truth offerings, it comes in a full fatpack of colours and is absolutely perfection.  To get yours, just join the Truth group for 350L then look in group notices to get it.  All from the comfort of your own skybox!

What’s the Story?

Stories & Co. are celebrating pride this month with their latest group gift, as well as a free group join.  Their group is usually paid, but for the whole month of June you can join for free.  Their latest gift is this pretty asymmetrical dress.  I particularly enjoy the slit on the side!  There are also a few male and flat-chest options in the box, so everyone can take part.  To get yours, just join the Stories & Co. group for free, then click on the dress.  You’ll find a few other group gifts there too while you’re at it.

Intrepid Explorer

Intrepid Explorer

This is the perfect time to go for a hike and find some hidden places in SL.  You never know when you’ll find your new favourite hangout.  I found a gorgeous waterfall over at the It all Starts With a Smile sim, and I feel like exploring it is my new calling!

Dress it Up

As is my wont, I am doing my exploring in an outfit that I probably wouldn’t wear to explore RL locations.  The shortest skirts don’t always tend to be the best outside gear in the real world, but I’m so glad this new group gift from Luas won’t ride up!  To get this super cute look with a deeper message, just join the Luas group for 50L and then click on the vendor on their group gift wall.  The wall is pretty full of super adorable gifts, so totally worth the group join.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

But the Shoes Work!

For once I managed to get some sensible shoes for exploring, though, and they come courtesy of Equal!  I love the rainbows, as you all know, and you can get them for free by joining their free group.  How awesome are they?  They come with both male and female versions, and come sized for…

Sizes

  • Aesthetic Enzo
  • Alice
  • Belleza Female
  • Belleza Male
  • Exmachina
  • Legacy Female
  • Legacy Male
  • Maitreya
  • Signature Geralt
  • Signature Gianni
  • Slink Male
  • Slink Female
  • Unrigged Versions

Where will you explore today?

Spread the Love

Spread the Love

I’m feeling full of love today, Fab Free.  It could be the fact that people have been sending me nice notes, it could be the fact that I am grateful for all my friends and family, or it could be because I think the world needs just a bit more love these days.  I think it’s probably a combination of all these things!  Don’t forget to spread a bit of lovins to everyone around you.  A little goes a long way.

Si Belle

There’s a new group gift at Belle Époque!  This sweet tied t-shirt (sized for Maitreya and Legacy) is all about pride and love.  Y’all know I have a thing for rainbows!  To get it all you have to do is join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  There are lots of gifts to pick up for such a minimal fee, and new ones appear often.  Nice!

What a Drag!

The latest group gift from COCO has also made an appearance, and I adooooore them.  These long, wide-leg pants strike a balance between comfort and fashion, and I’m sure you’ll find loads of outfits to wear them with!  There are two different versions, this striped one, and an animal print version for all you wild ones out there.  To get them,  all you have to do is join the COCO group for free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Always Pr!tty

And lastly today, Pr!tty’s latest group gift was just released and it’s hella cute.  These long tousled locks come in a fatpack of colours, and there’s a free watermelon headband thrown in too!  Join the Pr!tty group for free to access this lovely hairdo, and stay buckled in to the group for their monthly offering.  Adorbs or what?

Hugs all round,

Hunt it Out

Hunt it Out

I always love a hunt that gets a song stuck in my head.  The thing is, I actually have a love-hate relationship with hunts.  I love the fact that I get free or cheap stuff by looking around a sim or a store, and a lot of the stuff I get is super adorable!  However, I find that my patience for well-hidden items seems to have dwindled in the last few months.  I’m not sure what that says about me, but I did manage to get one hunt under my belt today!

Cruel Summer

It’s time for the Cruel Summer Hunt!  From the organizers of Spookzilla etc, you’ll find a sim just bursting at the seams with cute items to hunt for.  You’re looking around for a little rubix cube.  Each one costs 25L or less.  I found most of the goodies from Love, and I’m sure you’ll agree they’re super adorable.  Here’s what I found:

  • 25L Hair by Love in a full fatpack of colours
  • 25L Panties by Love sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya
  • 25L Pants by Love sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya
  • 10L Pasties by Love with either clam shells or starfish in the box to choose from

The Cruel Summer Hunt has lots of designers participating – you can find all their hunt keys at the landing point.  You don’t have too long to grab the stuff you like though, this hunt is only running until June 14th!

Good Luck!

Fantasy Heals

Fantasy Heals

Come fairies,
Take me of
this dull world
for I would ride with you
upon the wind
and dance upon
the mountains
-WB Yeats

Fairy Time!

Are you feeling a bit under the weather?  Are the doldrums upon you?  I sometimes feel that a bit of fantasy goes a long way for removing the cobwebs from your head and reinvigorating your soul!  I picked up this top and bodysuit combo over at ShyDoll by joining their free group.  It comes in a pink and purple version and both items can be worn separately!

The Tide is High

The Tide is High

Yay!  I got to go fishing today!  It’s been a while since I parked myself over at the pond at Sn@tch and waited for a few cute outfits to bite, but I’m excited that there’s a brand new collection of clothes to pick up.  Sn@tch is actually where my Fab Free adventure began, so their little pond has a special place in my heart.  Read on to find out how you can get all sorts of free outfits!

Fishing Date

If you’ve never partaken in 7Seas Fishing, the concept is simple:  You buy a fishing rod for 100L, then you can use it for all other fishing locations, and fishing outfits.  An excellent return on investment!  You can buy a fishing rod by the pond at Sn@tch.  Then, you attach the rod to yourself and hang out by the pond to see what you catch!  There might be fish…there might be scrap, but there is also a pile of 21 free items you can get!  I fished the hair, bikini, and shoes (sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink) out of the pond, but there’s also tattoos, cover ups, more bikinis and some jewelry too!  All you need is  your 7Seas Fishing rod, and a bit of patience.  You can even set your rod to auto-cast so you can afk while your avi does all the work!

Bathing Suit Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Werewolf

Proper

Proper

Time to class up the park today in my frilly dress and proper hat!  There’s nothing quite like a little jaunt out in the afternoons in one’s finery to lift one’s spirits!

Fiesta!

The Sola Fiesta event is in full swing right now, and if you look carefully you’ll come across a few free gifts at the different stalls – no group join required, just buy the gifts for 0L.  Here’s what I picked up!

  • FREE dress by PS sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Necklace by RNK in 8 Colours
  • FREE Hair by Dura in three colours (This hair is made for wearing with hoodies, so is just the front piece – works with hats too!)

Sola Fiesta is running until June 22nd.

Back to Très Chic!

To go with the little hairpiece I picked up by Dura at Sola Fiesta, I figured the free hat from Miu that I got at Très Chic would work quite well.  To get it, all you have to do is join the free Très Chic group!

Hope your walk in the park is as genteel as mine was!
