Cat Hangout

cat hangout

I created this fun little apartment scene just for the cats to hang out in today! My furbaby in RL is a total apartment dweller, so this kitty cat bachelor pad is inspired by my baby.

I have some limited-time sales and a freebie to show tonight. These will be gone tonight or any moment now, so go ASAP to get them.

  • The beige cat pole with the funny cats playing on it and with the hanging fish cat toys is on sale for 50L for the Secret Sale at MOoH! until today, August 29th. The item includes a cat tree with cats on it (shown on the right) and a cat tree without the cats on it (shown on the left). Several other colour options and a special Halloween edition of this cat pole are available for 50L each at MOoH! for the duration of the sale. The sale ran from August 26th to today. Once the sale ends, you can get it for full price at the MOoH! mainstore if you miss the sale. You only have a few hours left to get these at the price of 50L, perhaps less. If you want to do a quick last-minute rush run through the Secret Sale, the details about how to do this sale and previews of the deals are posted on their website, which I have linked right here.
  • The other sale item I have to show you tonight is a cat gym. That’s the dark brown one with the black cat sleeping on the top with the white cat sleeping at the bottom. This item is currently on sale at Noveny for only 60L. This was on the eBENTO sale last weekend, but it’s still available to grab for that low price at the time of posting right now! This item will likely also be released for full price after the sale is taken down, but now is your chance to get it for a low price. RUN before it switches over to full price.
  • The birdcage lamp is on sale right now for 60L for an unknown limited time at Noveny for the Beauty60 sale. All of the 60L sales for this weekly event are posted on their website here.
  • The tire table with beer bottles is the latest free subscriber gift at Noveny. Just subscribe and click and it is yours for free. This is not a limited-time item (it should be out for a bit of time as it’s a brand new subsriber gift…), so don’t feel too stressed about getting it tonight. However, you may as well pick it up if you’re heading over to Noveny. 😉

That’s all for now! See you soon, FabFree!

When You Need A Banana Kitten Purse in Your Life…

Coming Soon

Fun at the FLF Birthday Bash!

Aline and Allison have been covering the Fifty Linden Fridays Birthday Bash extensively this month! I am showing you a few things from my top three designer booths I found at the event that I absolutely LOVED. I am featuring free and 50L finds from Jian, Lybra, and Wasabi from the FLF Birthday Bash today.

Jian

First off, let’s talk about all the awesome items available from Jian for this event! They deserve an award for the cutest animal-themed items at the FLF Birthday Bash.

  • The cute kittens crawling up my legs are the free gift. Simply join the free Fifty Linden Fridays group to get these! You can click them to change the breed/look of the cats under the textures menu. I picked these two breeds, and I thought they were so cute together. Wearing these little guys has resulted in me getting some interesting comments from strangers… I love them! The free gift also includes a cat that sleeps on your head.
  • Secondly, let’s talk about the kitten purse. It’s a bag shaped like a banana with an adorable kitten inside it! Honestly, how can you resist? You get a full fatpack for only 50L at the event. It includes wearable bags with kittens in them for your right and left shoulders, as well as rezzable versions of the kitties in the banana purse and rezzable versions of the bag without a cat in it. They are precious and cute, truly. ❤

Lybra

Lybra has some awesome offerings at the FLF Birthday Bash. They are selling 4 mini-packs of shoes for only 50L per pack. I have been loving the shoe designs Lybra has been releasing. They are very detailed and unique, and on sale for an excellent price too! I am wearing one of the 50L mini-packs right now, called the “Morgan” shoes. Each 50L mini-pack includes a colour hud of white, black, pink and red colours. You can colour the top and bottom of this pair of shoes to different colours, and the pack includes 3 metal options for the heart pendant connected to the laces.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Erika
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Lybra is also offering a white and pink patterned version of Morgan as their free event gift for the FLF Birthday Bash. Those ones have little bunnies on the bottoms. See the vendor photo below as a preview and make sure you pick up this free texture of the Morgan shoes while you are at the event. Take a look at the other 3 mini-packs Lybra has on sale for 50L too- they are all amazing!

Wasabi

I am also wearing another 50L sale item from Wasabi. This was a past sale item I believe, so check if you have it already. I had missed it in the past, so I picked it up this time around! I love when I get a second chance. 😉 This hairstyle is called “Sunday”. It’s a style of braided pigtails, so what’s not to love? The 50L deal includes a full “absolute” pack of hair with 3 extensive colour huds, and there is a styling hud included as well. You can turn the accessories (the hair clips) on or off.

Make sure you check out Aline’s post here which shows the new hair Wasabi is selling for only 50L at the event.

Everything from this year’s FLF Birthday Bash ends so soon on September 2nd! So rush over there now and get what you want before it all goes away. I have linked the past FabFree coverage of the FLF Birthday Bash below for your convenience. Make sure you check out these great posts and get the goods before it’s too late!

Have fun at the Bash, FabFree!

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

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!

Pugs & Kisses

Pugs n Kisses

The weekend is the perfect time to dress up and spend some time hanging out with a four legged date!  Heck, they don’t care if you dress up or not.  But it’s fun to dress up so I do.    This cute little guy comes to me courtesy of Dench Designs who are (is??) having a flash sale on them!  You get a plethora of pugs, for NOT a plethora of lindens!  This flash sale goes til Tuesday (great band back in the day!  lol), and you can get the puggies for only 32L!  If you can’t make it there by Tuesday (thats *not* a band…. that I know of.), then you can get the puggies for 60L.  Which is still a faboo price!  You just rez the pug bed and click it and choose what you would like the pug to be doing.  I made him sit so he could be pretty for my picture.  This is the ad which shows your pug activity choices:

For the love of Pug Ad

Each pug is indeed animated and soooo stinking cute!  They are perfect company for that at home with my pug date night!  😀  Grab the popcorn and a movie and get ready for lots of pugs and kisses from your little four legged date!

Well its me again gang, Your favorite blonde, psychotic, shopaholic, head in the clouds blogger!  I hope you sang along with me!

As Aline already knows (and she *still* lets me blog!  I tell ya that girl is a saint!) and now you all do too, I love to change the words to songs, I generally make them very silly.  But sometimes they just come out downright BAD!  But that’s the fun in it!

I know, I know, y’all are waiting to find out what goodies I found for you this morning!  So, thanks to the group chat (which is usually loaded with fun info and helpful peeps like yerselves!) I learned of a little part of Scandalize that I (since I’ve been living under a rock, apparently, which someone once told me  lol) is just chock full of freebies!  It’s called Scandals Frees and News.  The group is free to join and it is an entire room of clothes and complete outfits that are totally free!  Really, if they had this sort of stuff back in the dark ages when I was a newbie, well, let’s just say I would have been much better dressed!   You can get an entire wardrobe here!

The cute pants and belt I am wearing are one of the things I found there. They come in this solid color and the same color but with cute little polka dots.  I found so much though don’t be surprised if they pop up in another blog post.  These super cute pants fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

OK chickadees, this girl is *starving*! So I’m gonna go find some lunch.  Happy shopping y’all!

Just Slothing Around!

Just Slothing Around

Hello Fab Free!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I know, I sure did. Watched some beautiful fireworks and had a nice barbecue with family. Yummy, hotdogs and burgers fresh off the grill! And of course, with all of that you can’t forget the fries, baked beans and fresh corn on the cob! Okay… okay, before I make myself hungry again, let’s talk freebies!

I decided to wander over to Foxes today and am I glad I did! Their new group gifts for July are amazing! Their are a bunch of new free goodies, as well as lots of older gifts still available. The in-world group is $150L to join. I always find Foxes items to be super cute, and I can’t wait to see what other goodies she puts out in the main store. So, while venturing at the store, I saw this adorable Jasmine Cropped Top and I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. I normally dislike the color yellow, but when I put this on I was quite pleased with how it looked!

Foxes- Jasmine Cropped Top Sizing:

  • Maitreya

Now, I am a sucker for animals, especially cute hold-able ones. Foxes always seems to have some cute babies up their sleeve! This month’s free group gifts include a baby sloth! That’s right… a SLOTH! I am a lover of these slow moving animals, so to have one to hold in Second Life?! I about died, with excitement. I am like never putting this little baby down, maybe I shall give him a name… mmmh? Well, I should ponder this for a while, names are very important you know!

Breaux Jr. gave out a gift and at first I thought it was the box! I rezzed their box and it was this one prim adorable little baby bear! How cute is that?! And only 1 prim! Ohmygosh! He would make a great prop for any landscape!

Then I realized he was actually the box for another free gift that is inside him! “Open” him up and you get the free torch that I have rezzed out as well. This gift is also courtesy free of the Gacha Guardians event.
