A Lone Subway Car

A Lone Subway CarHow’s it going, Fab Free? I have started to leave the house a little bit more now that my country’s restrictions have loosened a bit. However, every time I take the subway there is almost no one on it! I guess I’m riding this subway train solo today. At least I can do it in style thanks to the free gifts I got through the Stay at Home Club during quarantine!

The Goods

The cute dress and heels I have on are current gifts at M&M style and Baby Monkey for the Stay at Home club. Just head over to their stores, find their stay at home club vendor and enjoy these precious finds! The dress comes in one pattern/ texture, but for these Sativa Plats heels you can change the shoes to several shades of green.
Stay safe, Fab Free!

Snow Day like Today

Snow Day like Today

Hey FabFree! Are you getting all that Christmas shopping done? I thought I was caught up then wham… we get the Shop and Hop! So… MANY… Free Gifts!

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’

Like this lovely new hair from Magika! This is “Let it Snow” and you can pick it up for free at the Magika booth at Shop and Hop. The hair style comes in three sizes and the HUD is a full Fatpack! Merry Christmas, indeed.

My cozy scarf is also a free gift at Shop and Hop. This is Aphorism’s unisex gift ‘Winter Scarf’. It also comes with a HUD to change the scarf from solid to strips and to change or hide the fringe.

Women’s Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Men’s Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature- Gianni
  • SLink Male

Great balls of snow

I also hopped over to the SOS Winter Faire where I found this cute hand painted snowball free from Bad Kats. A few booths have gifts and most have an exclusive item for the Fair.

The Survivors of Suicide group in Second Life has grown by leaps and bounds and is, in fact , the longest running mental health group on the Grid. The Holidays are often difficult times for people and reaching out is never easy. But knowing someone is ready to talk or just listen can make the difference to someone in need.  So, have fun shopping the Fair and know the moneys raised from the raffle and donations go to SOS helping with real recovery.

And a personal note… if you are feeling blue this holiday season… reach out. There are so many people ready and willing to help.

You are loved and needed.

Fine Fall Friends

Fall Friends
Happy Weekend, FabFree Folks! Don’t you love that Fall is really here? Even way down here in South Texas, we’re seeing colors in the trees and it’s been wonderfully cool. This is that picture perfect ‘Back To School” weather isn’t it?

On the gO

!gO has the perfect school girl or college girl outfit in the Adela Gatcha over at the Gacha Garden. I am in love with the soft fuzzy sweater and the prim and proper neck scarf. At only 75L perplay I was ready to play for along time. But I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares in just a couple of plays! The rare includes the armful of books with a scripted hold pose. Other than that, the commons are just as nice as the rares. Something I really appreciate. But since I had two cute looks… I called Aline to come help me out. So here we are reliving our college days…. if we had lived in Europe… and had loads of private school money … 😉

Sizes Included ( Sweater, Skirt and Scarf)

  • Belleza – Freya. Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Curls for Days

As usual, many of the venders at the Gacha Garden have put out free gifts for the free Gimme Gacha group. My luxurious new locks are the gift from Analog Dog.,  This is “Mali” and you get the full color fatpack when you pick up the gift. There is also a styling HUD to change how the hair lies on your shoulders. The curls are just gorgeous and with every color under the rainbow, I bet you’ll find one that’s perfect for you.

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Family

Guardians_001

It’s hard to believe how close we are almost to December. To celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, Baby Monkey is giving out a special group gift to their members. All you’ll need to do is be a member of the group (it’s only 20L to join).

To get the gift

Join the group by pasting secondlife:///app/group/56b559e4-74aa-2b4a-deeb-7c5d4517fe3a/about into your local chat and then check the group notices for the gift. Notices expire after 14 days, so be sure to hurry to get this beautiful Olive Wood Nativity from Baby Monkey.

Not just for Christmas

One thing that really resonated with me about this beautiful gift from Baby Monkey is that it can speak to many people. As said in the beautiful little note that was included with the gift: “If you are not a Christian we think this is still a charming family group that speaks to the enduring love of parents for their child.” This is a gift that is for all families, not just those who celebrate Christmas.

Just 2 Prim

The lovely sculpture come in at just 2 prim and is also modifiable if you want to make it larger. Currently it is tabletop size.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/20/2017 – Baby Monkey

Baby Monkey Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! I’ve been lucky, my weekend started early which means more time for my Fabulously Free in SL family. It also means I had a little extra time to check out this weeks designer of the week, Baby Monkey. The Baby Monkey shop is probably best known for their shoes, however they also have quite a bit of ladies and some mens fashion, and accessories. You may recall seeing their most recent Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift in Astrid’s post “Paradise and Leaves.” More on that in a moment. The Baby Monkey shop has a nice, easy to navigate store with a pretty center courtyard. I like this shop setup up quite a bit because it’s easy to use your camera to see where you are and where you want to go next.

In what you could call the main part of the store you’ll see a desk with a few little FREE gift bags sitting on it. These fun little freebies are FREE to everyone. Each of the 4 bags has something interesting or useful for anyone, such as an ankle lock, or tummy takers, one even has a ton of recipes inside. Next to the desk is a teleporter that lets you jump to an individual department for easy shopping. Also in this same room you’ll find the Baby Monkey group gifts. The Baby Monkey group is just 20 lindens to join at this time and there are current and previous group gifts available.
Baby Monkey Gifts
In addition to the numerous Baby Monkey group gifts, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, including the previously mentioned Fab Free exclusive gift. Remember, the Fab Free gift requires the Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Needless to say the Baby Monkey shop has something for everyone, and for just about any occasion. Don’t miss out on these great freebies and cheapies! Happy weekend and have fun shopping!

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!
