Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Everyone Loves a Canadian Girl

Happy Canada Day, Fabbies 🍁!  I know that the vast majority of our readers don’t necessarily hail from the land of maple syrup and poutine like I do, but we do have a dedicated set of readers out there – I see you, Canucks!  Anywhos, if you’re looking to celebrate the land of Inukshuks, Polar Bears, Anne of Green Gables, Nanaimo Bars, Beaver Tails, Ryan Reynolds, Hockey, The Northern Lights, Tim Horton’s, Moose, Canoes, Drake, Free Health Care, Mounties and about 50 billion other fun things… well, then this post is for you.  I salute you, Canadaland!

MP Trawl

Around this time of year every year, it’s my personal little tradition to trawl Marketplace in search of some cute Canadian gifties.  They’re not always easy to find, so an MP search can be a fun scavenger hunt.  There are a few I come back to every year, just because they’re so cute, and a few new ones I add into my repertoire.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L top by Shamrock Boutique sized for Isis, Freya, Hourglass, Jomo Fox, Jomo Werewolf, Maitreya, Physique and Venus with three different textures to choose from (Hi Dews!)
  • FREE glasses by Little Llama
  • 10L Headband by Sugarplum Boutique

There are quite a few other fun things – what will you put together?

Movie Night!

I’m getting straight up movie night by the lake at the cottage vibes from Kim’s Kreations today.  You all know how generous Ms. Kim is, and she’s gone and done it again with all sorts of Canadiana for you to set up the perfect night with friends.  You’ll find the whole movie night set there for free, as well as the balloon arch behind to decorate with!  There’s even a flyable balloon there that you’ll have fun zooming around places and yelling “eh!” at people from.  Trust me, I’ve done it.  Thanks Kim!

 

Have a wonderful day, Canada – you’re pretty awesome.

$L 10,200 Worth of Store Credit and Gift Cards @ Second Life’s 19th Birthday!

Hey FabFree! I am here to show free and group gift store credits and gift cards available @SL19B. SL19B closes on July 10th, but I suggest you go as soon as possible to get the credits and spend them as sometimes they are taken away early. This year’s birthday has the largest offering of free store credits and gift cards the event has ever soon!

What are Store Credits vs. a Gift Card?

For those who need a refresher, gift cards are objects that send to your inventory that allow you to buy any product in a store. You have to add the gift card hud to your screen and use the “buy” menu to purchase it. In comparison, store credit adds linden “credits” on your account, which you can use to purchase items at a store using the vendor’s menu. Note that often store credits and gift cards have an expiry date and some limitations on items that can be purchased with them, so read up on the offer when you get it!

Mermaid Off Duty

Mermaid Off Duty

I’m taking a break from all the undersea splashing.  A girl can only comb her hair with a fork for so long before she needs to take a break and go where the people are.  So I’ve packed a lunch of krill and headed up to the shore to see what’s new in the land of the two-legged types.

Under the Sea

Under the Sea they may play all day, and I promise you won’t slave away picking up all these free gifts!  Just join the free Evil Bunny group, and click on all the gift bags (there are a few that are paid, be aware!) and you’ll have boatloads of fun gifts in no time.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE hair by Butterfly Kiss Boutique
  • FREE top by The Bold Llama sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody, Legacy, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine & XS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • FREE backpack by Snappy Wears

Here’s a better look at the backpack:

Under the Sea is running until June 14th, so dive in soon!

  • FREE Glasses by GiuliaDesign

I Can Hear Them Whisper

I can hear them whisper

I can’t believe that Blueberry has been around for 10 years! That’s an eternity in SL time. There are various happenings at the store in celebration and you definitely don’t want to miss them, so allow me to enumerate. 

New Gift

There’s a new group gift at the Blueberry main store and oh my is it pretty. It’s called Decade and included is a dress version and a shirt version. I’m wearing the dress here. There’s also a very extensive HUD for all of your customization needs – the group notice says it’s 37 colors and 18 patterns! Not to mention options for things like button and panty color. Oh! I wanted to mention the panties too. Yes, I just exclaimed over free panties. They are a separate piece and will certainly be useful under other outfits as well. Bonus gift!

Sizes:

  • Ebody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Store Credit

There is a free 500L store credit that you will find in the Blueberry group notices. When you attach it and click to apply the funds to your store credit balance, there’s a popup that the credit will expire in 3 weeks. it certainly won’t last that long though! Because…

Sale!

There’s also a sale going on and the entire store at Blueberry is 50% off. So if you use your credit now you can get twice as much stuff. Math! I’ve found that I’m a sucker for shoes that lace up the leg and I grabbed these Solstice sandals (which you can only see the very top of) in a fatpack – we’re talking flat/high feet, height options for the laces from ankle to knee and clear up to thigh, and lots of colors. A whole fatpack at half price was only 225L but free with my giftcard, so I was able to grab a couple of other cute pieces as well!

The sale started on Saturday and will last for 5 days, so I guess until Thursday-ish? The good news is that, if you can’t get there for the sale, the credit is in group notices and Blueberry leaves up their old group gifts so the gift will probably remain available. It’s 20L to join Blueberry‘s group but you’re already in it so no problem there, right? And if not, that’s 20L very well spent. Happy Anniversary Blueberry!

Just Another Manic Monday

Just Another Manic Monday

Just another manic Monday here in the land of Aline.  I’m fed up with deadlines and paperwork and madness, aren’t you?  It’s time to put on something comfortable and forget about these tawdry day to day doings.  Let’s get back to some self-care!

Banding Together

This cute cropped and cozy sweatshirt comes to us courtesy of Gaia, but is actually provided in several different locations so that as many people as possible can get it.  It is completely free, and is actually an anti-war shirt.  You’ll find that the HUD allows for some very intense sentiments with regards to war and hate – so just warning you, there are some rude words involved.  However, if you prefer to just go straight up plain, then you can also do so, like I did for PG-13 purposes.  There are lots of different colours in the HUD.  You can grab it for free at any of the stores below!

I Believe

I Believe
I’ve long been a fan of the Witchwood sim and it’s two polar opposite shops – flowy, hippie, boho Petite Mort and dark, goth, witchy Oubliette. If you haven’t wandered Witchwood you honestly need to. And while you’re there you can join the free combo group for both stores that’ll let you take advantage of a shelf of free group gifts and free lucky boards in each!

Blushing

Do you ever just come across something and you can’t believe that it’s made so entirely perfectly? That’s how I feel about this top. Perfection. The way it hangs, the color, the texturing, all the little details – perfection. And do you know what’s even better? It was a free lucky board prize at Petite Mort. There are four free lucky boards at Petite Mort and four more at Oubliette, so you can scamper back and forth and keep an eye on both at the same time. So much goodness. So. Much. The blouse comes in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

All you’ve gotta do is join that free Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group that we talked about earlier and wait for your letter! May the odds be ever in your favor.

Unexpected Freebie

When you’ve got an inventory like mine, just getting dressed is bound to include some freebies! I got it in my head that a denim skirt would be perfect for this look and started trying on options from my inventory. Wouldn’t you know it, this flowy sweet little number that I settled on just so happens to be a Blueberry group gift. It’s not new but it is so cute and well made. So I guess this is a reminder to all of us to not forget about the older stuff, because newer is not always better! The Blueberry group is only 20L to join and this gift includes a really great HUD of color and belt options, plus sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

The Band is Back Together!

SN: All Girl Band

The Band is back together!!!  The Fab Four rock band, “The Blogger Babes,” got back the band back together in true Blues Brothers (Sisters!) style to check out this sweet new background from Something New!  Called “All Girl Band,” this fun pose set can be found at the Cheeky Wow Event for 200L. While you are there, pick up their 10L pose, “Tune My Piano.”  There are four OTHER musical poses (singles and couples with fancy musical props!!) in the stand ranging from 50L -100L.  These deals are DEFINITELY worth a road trip.  Caroline, Arielle, Juli and I had a blast playing with the poses and adding props!

Paint It Black

Paint It Black
One of my favorite quirks of Second Life is that when an event has a birthday, it gives us gifts! The current first anniversary round of 60 Special Go is no exception. Besides the fact that everything is 60L (a bonus in and of itself) lots of the booths have 6L or free gifts out to celebrate. There is no group join needed, you’ve just gotta tp in and start clicking.

I grabbed this free pose at the M&T booth. It’s called “kiss the rain” and it’s just so fun and dramatic. I also couldn’t resist this fab 6L dress from *AS*. Doroty is a great little mini featuring a loose skirt, harness, a HUD that lets you choose from a few color options, and sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

60 Special Go is opened through the end of March, with the last day being March 31st. I hope that you have time to hop over and snatch up the freebies and great deals before they’re gone!
