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!

  • Freya
  • Maitreya

Imperfection is key, I always say!

My Go-To

My Go-To

We always have our go-to locations in SL.  When it comes to makeup, I know that If I’m looking for something gorgeous, affordable and different, then Alaskametro is the place I need to head.  When they recently announced that they were taking over a table at The Free Dove, I got excited and headed straight over to pick up the free goodies!

Free, I Tell You!

Caroline recently mentioned that The Free Dove are reorganizing a bit – they’ve moved to grouping all designer products together.  There’s a whole table’s worth of prettiness from Alaskametro, and I couldn’t be happier.  I got this swimwear/lingerie look there (comes with appliers for Omega, Slink and Maitreya, as well as System Layers) in addition to the lipstick, eyeshadow and nail polish!  The makeup comes with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, Omega and BOM/System Layers.   There’s also a pretty skin available as well if you’re looking for something new for your avi!  To get all this goodness, all you have to do is join the free Free Dove” group and click on all the boxes.  I’ve included a photo of the nail polish vendor (comes with an Omega applier and Maitreya as well)  just so you can see how many options there are!

Strike a Pose

There are always great new additions to The Stay at Home Club, and these poses from Kokoro were perfect for showing off my manicure.  There are 4 different poses in the box!  No need to join a group, just head over to Kokoro and click on the vendor – grab them for free!

What are your go-to’s?

Who Doesn’t Love a Good Traipse?

Who Doesn't Love a Good Traipse?

Though Easter is behind us, I’m still happy to traipse about the countryside with a basket full of goodies looking as cute as can be!

Hunt, You Say?

There’s another lovely hunt going on over at LEIGH.  I love how whenever a holiday comes along you’re sure to get something pretty and affordable over at their mainstore.  You can grab the pretty flowered dress I’ve got on (it comes in two different colour options in the HUD) for 10L and just a bit of hunting.  Look all over the store for the little eggs – and do peek outside too.  You’ll also be able to get this lovely basket for free!  There are lots of pretty items to choose from, so head over there before May 11th before it’s all gone.

Sizes

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

Have fun traipsing!

Bougainvillea Dreams

Bougainvillea Dreams

I’m thinking about trips I’ve taken in the past to warm, sunny climes.  I’m reminiscing very fondly of trips to Southern Italy, where the bougainvillea trails down the sides of buildings, wreathing every balcony in a rosy glow.  Long walks on the beach in the evening looking at what everyone is wearing, and having as much gelato as my heart desires.  Italia, siete nel mio cuore (Italy, you’re in my heart!).

Hunting for the Love

To keep us occupied in these strange days, many creators are coming up with fun and free ways to keep the hearts of our online community uplifted.  Being stuck at home myself, I highly appreciate the efforts!  Over at Belle Epoque, they’ve brought back one of their previous Valentine hunts!  Just join the Belle Epoque group for 10L, then hunt around the store for all the little roses.  In the past these items were paid, but right now they’re free for group members!  Nice!  I picked up the shoes, top and fan there, though there are loads more pretty items too!  These items are sized for Maitreya bodies.  Oh, and the fan moves back and forth in a sultry little animation.  Cool!

Have Fun Fab Free, and check in with all your friends inworld while you’re at it!

Love for your Girls

Love for your Girls

Yes, yes I know… Valentine’s day has passed, so what’s up with all the pink and red?  We have been so lucky the last two weeks to be drowning in gorgeous group gifts, that I’m going to be tossing hearts at you for the next little while!  This cool outfit is in celebration of all your best girls, and so I think it’s one of those looks you’ll be wearing beyond the confines of love day!

Don’t Mess With Miss

Miss Chelsea recently put out a new group gift, and I am super in love with it.  It’s this awesome pair of tights and cropped sweatshirt combo (yep, the mesh underneath comes with too!).  You can look like you’re planning on working out, or kicking butt, even if you’re just about to crack open a bag of chips and Netflix it up with your friends.  The best part about this look is the different sayings that come plastered across the sweatshirt – four to choose from.  Mine says “Support your local girl gang”, but there’s also “Bride Squad”, “Nasty Woman” and “All the Single Ladies”.  You can even change the colour of the mesh underneath to suit your mood.   Nice!  To get it, all you have to do is join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L.  There are a bunch of other group gifts on their counter too while you’re at it.

Came for the Rides, Stayed for the Churros

Hi hi, have you ever been to an amusement park in Second Life? There’s been so many through the years, some of them are still around, some are long gone, but they can be pretty fun places, if not great places for pictures. Even this one, with it’s ghosts and many other spooky things.

I dropped by the other day by Gabriel and stumbled into a lot of goodies. There’s a whole section of 1L and 49L items, group gifts and free for everyone gifts. You will even see some little signs by some of the vendors where you can pick up some free shoes. A lot of what you will find is for male avatars, yet there are also accessories for everyone along with some unisex and female clothing items.

 

For other things you’ll see in this post, Maru Kado also has a lot of gifts (you will need to join their group for free to pick up most), from fun accessories to a selection of old booths for past editions of Japonica, one of which i’m using as a backdrop, tho of course they can be handy for many things more. And there’s also a hair from bonbon. You can pick it up for free if you belong to the group ( cost: 99L). It comes with a ton of colors and  both with the koala headband and without.

About the jackets:

You’ll see three different tops/jackets you can pick up for free at Gabriel, there’s no group join required. The three of them come in versions for both male and female avatars. Two of them come with swords as an accessory

Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Stay Safe!

Stay Safe

I won’t bore you with my regular ramblings about the lack of warmth in RL, or the fact that I’m still trudging through slush on the daily.  Instead, I’ll just talk about the importance of water safety!  Make sure you’ve got a cute lifeguard keeping an eye on  you at all times, because ain’t nobody got time for no drowning!  What?  It’s true!

Upcycling is so Hot Right Now

You may have heard of the shop Upcycled before if you’re a freebie hunter like we are here on Fab Free!  They have a little inworld shop now where every item is completely free, from clothes all the way down to flowers, furniture and food.  I grabbed my cute little applier bikini and jean shorts there, as well as the lifeguard chair I’m sitting on!  You’ll find lots of great items to decorate with, so give it a little peek!  My clothes come with an Omega applier for easy wearing purposes!

More Bonbons!

Have you seen that Bonbon has a new group gift out for Fabulously Free in SL group members?  My little side ponytail is just so adorable and warm-weather ready that I can barely stand it.  It comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty hair colours, and you can also change the colour of the scrunchie.  To grab your own, just join the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group, which is always FREE to join, making this cute hairstyle completely free!  Yaaaas!

Stay safe out there!

I Sparkle! I Shine!

I Sparkle, I Shine!

Time for a nice night out, sparkling my way through the holiday season.  Are you looking for a cute look to wear to a holiday party without shelling out too much dough?  I mean…who isn’t!?

Sparkle On

My sparkly, chain-mail-like dress is a group gift over at Miss Chelsea.  The bodice drips seductively off the delicate chains in quite an alluring way, making this slinky little dress one heck of a showstopper!  It comes with an HUD to change the colour of the dress to loads of different options, so you’ll never want for different looks.  To get yours, join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L.  Totally worth the join fee, because there are a bunch of other gifts on the counter for you as well.

Space Bunz!

My cute hair from Bonbon is a completely free marketplace gift!  Yup, I got my adorable space buns just by heading over to the marketplace and buying it for free!  It was delivered neatly to my received items folder, and I’ve got all sorts of colour options as it’s a full fatpack of awesomeness.  It can also be resized just by clicking on the hair itself!  So fab!

Now, go forth my little disco balls!

Feathers and Lace

Feathers and Lace

I told you I’d be inching toward the realms of Halloween bit by bit… I’m just poking my toe in.  I know Pru is ready to go for it – but since I’m a Canuck, I feel like I need to exercise restraint until Canadian Thanksgiving rolls by next Monday.  So here I am, in black lace waving some fancy fans in a nonchalant kind of way…

So Sexay

Beauty Factory have been chucking the gifts about like nobody’s business recently.  Pru showed you this amazing bikini recently, but they’ve got another sexy number for you!  I joined the group for free and picked up this really lovely lace dress and knickers set.  It comes in both red and black.  You really can dress it up like crazy, or just slink around the house looking sultry all day!  I’d rush over there if I were you while the group is still free!

Sizes

  • Maitreya

  • Hourglass

Enjoy the last day of September!
