One of Those Days

One of Those Days

It’s been a day, folks!  What a day indeed.  One of those days that hits you like a ton of bricks and then keeps poking you for hours afterwards.  That calls for a warm mug and a cute outfit, plus plenty of freebies!

Big Girls Don’t Cry

As I’m sure we’ve made it clear on the blog, Halloween is on it’s way!  There are loads of free gifts all over the place right now, and I for one am not complaining one bit.  I made my way over to the Big Girl event, joined the free group, then walked around clicking on all the jack-o-lanterns in front of each booth.  Spoiler alert, not every pumpkin contains a gift, some are just a little trick.  But the gifts that you will pick up are really nice, making this a fun event to visit.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE bodysuit by CryBunBun sized for Freya, Kupra, Legacy Perky, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE mug by 28LA (ooh, steamy!)

There’s lots more to check out at Big Girl, and you’ve got until November 10th to visit!

Think I need this drink to be just a *little* stronger…

Pink and Spooky

Pink and Spooky

Hallowe’en sure does have a surfeit of black, orange and spooky all over, but if you know where to look, you can also find a bit of pink and pretty too!  So grab your frillies and clutch your pearls, cuz we’re going on a spooky walk!

Pink and Creamy

Pink Cream Pie are hosting a spooky walk!  What does that mean, you ask?  Well, they’ve decorated a little outdoor area for Halloween, and as you walk through the little maze-like area (which outside of the store), you come across different items you can pick up for deeply discounted prices.  I picked up the Carla top and Serena skirt for just 25L each!  There are several other stores participating, you’ll find some shoes, and even a cool outfit for the guys as you walk the paths!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Freya (skirt)

You’ve got til the end of the month to take your very own spooky walk!

An Escape

An Escape

This skelly girl is in need of a recharge.  As soon as I was free from my workish duties today, I slipped on something cute and comfy, grabbed a hot drink and trotted off into nature.  All those pages of to-dos miraculously disappeared from my mind, and all I could think was “ahh…Fall!”

Pink and Creamy

These super cute leggings are the latest group gift from Pink Cream Pie.  I’m a bit of a sucker for skeleton leggings (would tooootally wear some in RL), and these ones make me super happy – they also come with an HUD to change to 5 different colours.  While I was there, I got a cute tank top to go with them off the lucky boards.  There are lots of gifts loaded into the boards there, and they flip pretty quick, so you’ll be glad you stopped by.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join, but the sheer amount of gifts, lucky boards, PLUS the monthly 100L in store credit that you get make it beyond worth it.  Go check them out!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass (leggings only)

I hope you find your calm today too, my skele-friends!

Legend of the Fall

Legend of the Fall

I read somewhere today that it’s never too early for Halloween.  I’m not really going to classify this as a Halloween look, however – more of a “I need a bit of dark and creepy in my life sometimes” look.  I’m ready for fall – bring on the grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup and pumpkin spice everything!

The Crow

Over at Corvus, you’ll find a wall full of group gifts, including this newest one.  It comes in this printed version, covered in all sorts of creepy delights, or a plain grey version if you just want to be cuddly without the creepy.  To get yours (and the rest of the gifts), just join the Corvus group for free and click on the vendor!

  • Freya
  • Isis

  • Legacy
  • Slink

Serial Cereal Eater

Serial Cereal Eater

This seems like the opportune time to go on a rant about cereal.  I could ramble endlessly about the merits of this sugary breakfast treat over that… but really, why would I meander down the path of preferences in such an inelegant way?  Instead, I’ll just sit on this cart and buy a little bit of all of it.  Problem solved.

The Holy Pants

It’s hot out, right?  But you want to wear leggings, right!?!!  Another problem solved for you today courtesy of Spirit!  They’ve got this really fun top and leggings set out for free right now for members of the 7 Day Sale group, which is free to join.  This seems to be like a fairly new idea, so I hope it’s something that the group continues!  Anyway, you can wear the top and pants separately, making it a good mix and match option for your inventory.  Yay!

A Bit of Space

A Bit of Space

Time to get outside for some fresh air, FabFree!  I think I definitely need a bit of open space, some movement and to feel the wind on my face.  I’ve been spending far too much time cramped indoors in a mostly uncomfortable chair staring at a screen, so a bit of movement is on the menu today!

I Ador-sy It!

Adorsy are celebrating their move to a new sim with a new group gift!  This cute tunic and leggings can be customized with so many different colours that you’ll be playing around for ages.  You also have the option of removing the leggings, so you can turn this into a cute and slouchy dress to give you a nonchalant sexy look.  To get yours, join the Adorsy group for 30L, pay the vendor 1L (it will be returned to you immediately) and voilà!  All yours.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy

You may also find some items on sale in the shop while you’re there, but word on the street is that today is the last day for the discounts!

Off I go!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Kupra, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), MeshBody Legacy

Let’s Do This!

Let's Do This!

We’ve come to the part of the evening where suddenly I’ve got loud music on, the champagne is chilled and all sorts of sparkly dresses have flitted through my mind – visions of NYE revelry.  It’s time to get dressed up and get out onto the grid.  Come on FabFree – let’s kick 2020 to the curb NOW!

Byeeeeeeee

Step 1:  an awesome dress.  Ricielli have got you covered on this front, as they’ve got their New Year Hunt kicking off.  Each gorgeous item is priced at just 15L (as is tradition) and there are so many pretty things to choose from.  I’m currently wearing #1, and I love it’s sparkly exuberance.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Ricielli Hunt New Year 2021

Swish Swish

Beusy are also ringing in the new year with a hairstyle for members of their VIP group.  The Nyx hairstyle is a high ponytail that comes in three parts:  the ponytail, the bangs and the hair base, so you can wear each part separately, mixing and matching as you like, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours.  I wore just the ponytail.  It’s cool because it’s got quite a bit of motion to it!  The Beusy group is currently 350L to join.  You can get this hairstyle by clicking on the wording at the top right of the gift vendor.

NYX HAIR+GIFT@BEUSY.

Happy New Year, FabFree.

I hope 2021 is a whole lot brighter.

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

The Quest for Carbs

The Quest for Carbs

There was a thing I used to do on weekends that would totally get me through the rest of the week back in the early 2000’s.  I’d hop on the subway, head downtown to the mall, buy a bunch of stuff I didn’t need (it was often some form of fun costume jewelry, a t-shirt I didn’t need and possibly some butterfly-shaped hairclips…but anyway) then head to get some horribly unhealthy food.  Wouldn’t that be nice right about now?

Don’t be Jelly

There’s a new group gift at Envious!  The shirt, dress, garter and shoes all come in this generous group gift and even better, the group is currently free to join!  I’m not sure for how long, since it actually says the price will go up November 3rd…so hop on this while you can before it changes!

Update:  Looks like this group will be free to join until November 30th!  The date in the inworld group was just a typo!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

In the Bag

Memoire also has a new gift out, and it’s this fun little purse.  It’s shaped like a Happy Meal, which is kinda awesome, really.  I think that’s what made me think of trips downtown to eat copious amounts of trans fats.  Anywho, the group is free to join, and the bag comes in a bunch of different colours too.  Sweet!

I think fries come with this shake!
