Cupcakes are Dope

Cupcakes Are Dope
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I can almost feel the summer coming to an end, there are still a few good beach days left though. Personally I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than listening to the waves roll in and indulging in something sweet. For my beach moment I picked up this mermaid cupcake at Boutique 187, and the swimwear at Beautiful Hustler. Both items are current group gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Cupcake – The clearly mermaid inspired cupcake Pru is holding is a recent group gift at Boutique 187.  It is super adorable all by its self, however, it also has a hold pose. This way you can carry it around and show off this delicious looking cupcake. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden.

The Swimsuit – If I were to only be able to wear one type of swimsuit for the rest of my life, the tankini would be my personal choice. It’s equal parts cute and comfortable. This tankini from Beautiful Hustler is their free August group gift. I love the bright tie dye colors for summer. It also reads “Dope” across the front of the tankini top for some extra sass. Also, the top is tied in the back, which gives it some extra detail. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Get Nostalgic
Hey Fab Free’rs! It’s time to get out your Doc Martins and your brown lipstick, ’90s fashion and accessories are making a comeback! I am once again going to show my age with this post, but I’ve learned to not care about age so much.

Right now you can get the cutest little heart choker for free at Boutique #187. This is a rare “no group required” freebie from Boutique #187, so you won’t want to miss it. It has resize scripts and comes in black, gold, and silver. I remember wearing these stretchy black plastic chokers in my teens in the ’90s so of course I had to have this one.

What better way to show off your choker than with cute braided space buns?! This hairstyle is a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. It comes with 3 color pack huds, and has resize scripts. The Pink Hustler group has a sizable join fee of 500 linden. This fee will grant you not only the current group gift, but an entire wall of previous group gifts, and of course future gifts.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, here are the details!

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve has always been my favourite.  There really is something magical and wonderful about it.  One of my most beloved traditions for Christmas Eve, is the fact that we all get together, gather around the table for hours and hours, have the best food and then after midnight, we bust out the cake and champagne before we roll ourselves contentedly into bed.   In order to be ready for tonight’s revelry, I of course needed to find the perfect fancy outfit to match the occasion.  And as I always say, if it’s free…even better!

Dazzling Delight

I popped over to the Cosmopolitan event, and found that they have a massive Christmas tree that is covered in gifts for group members.  Join the group for free, and then click on each little stocking hanging from the tree.  I got this gorgeous dress from Seniha (they actually have three dresses for you!).  I love the fact that the hem of the dress is dripping with sparkles!  So festive!

Sizes

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

Tree Topper

Also hanging from the tree, is the little Christmas tree headband that I think is super cute.  It’s lighted as well, so you will be absolutely glowing tonight!  I also found the floating stars by Persefona that I added for an extra magical touch.  Both are delightfully free.   My finishing touch is my eye makeup which I also found hanging on the tree by VYC Femme.  The smoky eye comes in several different colour options on the applier, which is for both Omega and Catwa.

Well, my dearest readers, I hope that your Christmas Eve is filled with magic and delight.  I wish you all peace and much joy.

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Petite Mort

Like all the gifts in this post, the cute “Let’s Get Baked” top by Petite Mort is a dollarbie gift at the Frost Fair. This fun holiday themed top comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, look for the gold and red gift box at the Petite Mort and buy it for 1 linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Slipper

The perfect house shoes for a day of holiday baking, these shoes are the dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Frost Fair. I really like the little details such as the stitching around the edges. This cute dollarbie is waiting for you at the Frost Fair in a pretty gold and red package at the Slipper booth. The shoes come in a few sizes, including a standard mesh size with a shoe base.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Boutique 187

This headband by Boutique 187 was just too cute to pass up. It’s the cherry on top of an already cute outfit. It isn’t often I have an excuse to wear such a cute and silly accessory. Not to mention that for just one linden, this Frost Fair gift is sure to make everyone smile. There are lots of great gifts to be had at the Frost Fair, no group needed and just 1 linden each.

Creepy and Cute

Pru OOPSCreepy

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely one of those people who thinks of Halloween as being more of a season than a single day. I’m in a spooky festive mood already this year. I think these cute sweater dresses from OOPS are a fun way to ease into the season. They come together as a FREE group gift for all OOPS group members. I really like the off the shoulder style, however I think the term dress is relative in this case. My body shape would definitely not allow me to wear this sweater as a dress! The OOPS group has a one time join fee of 10 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Ebody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP

Pru 187187

Next up this three ring septum piercing is a FREE group gift from Boutique 187. I could wear this piercing every day, no matter if my outfit was dressy or casual. This group gift at Boutique 187 comes with a color change hud that lets you choose between 6 colors and you can change each ring separately. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden. Along with this piercing gift, there are several past gifts still available.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

~Traditional Gaelic Blessing

 Kiss Me, I’m (Really) Irish

I know, Carson already said that. But I’m saying it, too. 😉

My grandmother was 100% Irish, and it was her grandparents who immigrated from Ireland during the potato famine years. I grew up hearing plenty of Irish quotes and sayings, my favorite of which was, “May you be in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you’re dead.” I’m not exactly sure how that works, but to this day, I still hope I can do it! 😀

But hey, enough of my family history… on to the free stuff!

Let’s Get This Party Started!

This sexy, little dress is a free subscriber gift from Nerido. No group space is required; just hit the subscriber button and wait for your gift. I’ll admit that it actually took several hours to receive mine – I don’t know if this was an SL glitch or just a slow delivery system. But if you don’t receive your gift right away, just be patient.

The dress comes in this cute shamrock and horseshoe design, as well as a solid green version, and is sized for:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Wearing of (More) Green

I kind of picked up these shoes by accident. I was hopping around the grid looking for something festive to wear and found myself at Precious Designs. Apparently, I clicked on a Mini Mania board because the shoes showed up in my inventory a few hours later – yay! They are sized to fit Slink High Feet only, but they do come with a 10-color texture change HUD, making them super versatile.

Note: the Mini Mania boards at Precious Designs change, and these particular shoes were not available when I went back today to take a look. But the shoes that were available are just as cute, so be sure to hit the board anyway.

My earrings and bracelets are by Heartsdale Jewellery as a free group gift for The Weekly Limited. Again, finding them was a bit of an accident. I had dropped in at the store to look for a different gift and found the pretty Green Goddess set instead (there is also a matching choker). Must be the luck of the Irish! 😀

Last but not least, my shamrock glasses are a free gift from Boutique 187. No group is required; just pay the 0L. Touch the glasses to activate the resizer.

Enjoy the rest of your St. Patrick’s Day! Sláinte mhaith!

A Mantra for the Weekend

Netflix Nutella and Naps

Those lovely long gone weekends.

Sometimes I can’t believe how fast those weekends zip by. It almost always seems that I blink and somehow teleported myself into another Monday. Hmm…I hope that isn’t some sort of hidden superpower manifesting itself but thankfully though I managed to make last weekend fruitful but getting into some hunts I’ve been meaning to do. Ever since I saw Pru’s post {HERE} about a pair of lovely and free boots from Perch, completing the Women Only Hunt 2 quickly made it’s way up to the top of my bucket list. This free hunt runs until the 24th of this month and there is a nifty hunt hud that you can pick up at the organizer’s main office which makes teleporting from store to store and getting hunt hints a breeze. Since I’m behind (what else is new yeah?) and am going to try my hand at doing a few hunts at once this really came in handy!

Back to knitwear.

In these chilly months, I’ve really come to miss my T-Shirts with their quirky quotes so opening up the hunt prize from American Bazaar and finding this oversized knit sweater was really a pleasant surprise. Not only is this comfy find well made and textured, I was also tickled by the caption on the front. Netflix Nutella and Naps…it’s good to have plans for next weekend don’t you think? This oversized sweater comes in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer to keep things nice and fitted. Just hunt out the snowflake at American Bazaar and this cozy addition to your wardrobe can be yours for free.

The thing about leggings…

Is that I can’t seem to get enough of them this season, especially the ones with the pretty prints and eye-catching colors. It’s a good thing then that the Women Only Hunt prize at Boutique #187 yielded up the Xmas knit beige leggings. Not only will these keep me warm while out on a jaunt on a snowy sim, the festive prints, and vivid colors certainly put me in a jolly mood. The Xmas leggings come in a system pants layer for those with a classic body and also a great hud that incorporates appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies as well as mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system. It’s a great space saver where inventory is concerned so hunt out that snowflake and get your leggings for free.

Who does your hair again?

In this post {HERE} I mentioned two new group gifts from the Truth VIP group and pictured is the second style. While I don’t own a great many short hairstyles, I fell in love with the Irenka hairdo straightaway thanks to it’s casual, wavy style. That tousled look is perfectly paired up with the beanie and not only will you get a hud to play around with beanie customization you’ll also get the option for added bangs. As with the Irena hairstyle, the Irenka hairdo comes in a fatpack of colors too. The Truth VIP group has a one time fee of 350L but we’ve gotten 3 hairstyles so far so it’s a great deal.

Back to the hunt!

Two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and one of those is WoW Skins. While hunting I noticed that they had their December group gift out and I immediately picked it up as well. I’ve always adored the glossiness of the skins from this merchant and December’s group gift, Janette, didn’t disappoint. The subtle blush on the skin is so very pretty and really brings to mind how flushed skin looks when you’ve been out in the chill. December’s group gift consists of the Janette classic skin in Tan with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Catwa and Omega appliers.  The Janette group gift is free to current members and it’s 450L to join. If you do decide to make the investment, past gifts will also be available to you as well as Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards.

Frosted sight.

As soon as I saw that Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 I thought, well there goes my decision to stick to one eye color. I’ve really enjoyed wearing the expressive eyes from this merchant and their Women Only Hunt 2 prize is no different. The aptly named Ice Dream Eyes fits in perfectly for this snowy season and if you’re into role playing as supernatural creatures these frosty pair of eyes are something that you could wear all year round. The best thing about this hunt prize, aside from being free of course, is the fact that you’ll get not one but three different dreamy eye colors. Pictured are the blue pair but there are green and gray as well. In the prize package, you’ll receive for all three colors, system eyes, mesh eyes and a hud for the Genesis mesh head as well as the Omega hud for mesh heads compatible with that system.

And that’s a wrap. Happy Hunting dear readers! For more coverage of the Women Only Hunt 2 check out the following posts:
