At Ease

At Ease

Ok y’all, I’m going to be real with you.  I don’t know what this look is really, but in some weird cavern of my mind, it works.  It’s like I’m some sort of half police chick, half soccer referee who just looks cool.  I’m making it happen.  You can’t stop me.

Binge-worthy

Binge Events have a cool free group gift at their headquarters for members of their free-to-join group.  This stripey top and matching pants (love the length on these) are great for a striking yet laid-back look.  There’s a little HUD to go with so you have 4 different colours for the top and three for the pants.  Nice!

Sizes

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

To the Engine Room!

Another of Second Life Syndicate’s massive and super awesome events is underway right now:  Engine Room!  If you’re into all things steampunk, you must visit.  There are a whole pile of awesome free gifts at most booths too, so there’s lots to discover.  I grabbed this hat and goggles set by Gabriel (you can resize quite easily, so very unisex), and the earrings from AiiZawa that are in the shape of the moon (love!).  The SLS group is free to join, making all the goodies at this event completely free.

Wanted to take a sec to wish Shana Tova to all those celebrating the New Year tonight!
And if someone asks you how your year is going… you say…. “Shofar so good!”

Sorry,  I’ve been peddling that joke *EVERYWHERE*.

Art Lover

Art Lover

I am a lover of art in both RL and SL. I’m hanging out in the studio with a nice, piping hot chai tea latte. Although I look like I’m ready to go to an art gallery opening with all the fashionable finds I am wearing today…

Uber! Style!

I have a whole load of free gifts from the Uber Anniversary to share this morning. This event is filled with fashionable free finds. To do the event, go to each store on the Uber gifts list that Aline made for us all. It can be accessed here. If you have the time, do send her a thank you for this because her hard work compiling this list made it so much easier for everyone to find the gifts. You can grab the free gifts until September 22nd. You only have a week left to get the goods!

Free gifts from the 8th Uber Anniversary I am showing today are:

  • A pack of BOM lipsticks for Lelutka EvoX at Glam Affair
  • Heels from Breathe that fit Lara, Legacy, Reborn, Kupra, Legacy and Slink
  • A tea chai latte at Andika, which can be worn or delivered to others through a dispenser
  • Earrings and a necklace from EarthStones Jewelry
  • Sunglasses from Deep Static, which includes an extensive color-change hud to change the frames, sides, and shades

Make sure you check out all the past FabFree coverage of the Uber Anniversary before the event closes. The posts below show more free goodies for you all to get! You will be walking around in style and ready for the next big art event after you collect these fashionable presents.

A Little Fun From Alaskametro

I’m loving the deals I found at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, and I was delighted to see that Alaskametro has a 10L item out at their booth at the event. It’s inside the coconut.  100% of the donations for this item are given to Doctors Without Borders. This nail applier set includes a hud of tropical colours. I will admit that Aline’s love for Alaskametro’s products has totally worn off on me. There are so many shades and designs included in this set! Did you know that even if you use a BOM avatar you can wear omega nails if you have the omega kit installed in your body? They are so cool and I always enjoy using omega nails because they are easy to apply and use- they just apply onto the nails on your body. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival ends on September 18th, so you only have a couple of days left to grab this great nail set for only 10L. You can see an image of the textures included with this nail applier set below.  Note that the set includes toenail appliers as well.

Sizes Included (Nail Appliers)

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Cinn
  • Chai

Here are my past posts which cover some of the 10L donation prizes from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival:

Thanks for reading, FabFree!

Renaming Tuesdays

Renaming Tuesdays

Ok, so Tuesdays are my least favourite day of the week.  Every other day seems to have an excuse for why it’s great, or why it’s terrible.  Like Mondays we all know are a bit of an ick, Wednesday is hump day, Thursday is allllmost Friday, Friday is Friday… and well, you know the rest.  Tuesday however – Tuesday just sits there and sticks its tongue out at you and defies to be classified.  So, because of that – I’ll proclaim this Tuesday to be store credit at Mossu day!

Don’t Delay!

Mossu are spoiling their group members with 300L in store credit for the next little while.  Their group is only 30L to join at the moment, so suuuper great deal.  Mossu makes some really pretty things, so I was excited when I heard the news.  I picked up this very pretty translucent dress (there are different transparency options in the HUD – so you can cover up….or…not) and the little bit of sparkle is totally giving me life.  It comes in at just 299L, so the perfect buy for your store credit.  You’ve got until August 23rd to pick it up, so head on over before you forget!  Oh, and don’t forget that there are also men’s items at Mossu, so let your dude friends know!

Sizes

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Happy Store Credit at Mossu Day!

A Flower for Bees

062122 - A Flower for Bees 01

Today was a lovely day for a walk in the woods among wildflowers and bees. I was feeling bright and cheerful for this photoshoot. I am super excited to be joining the FabFree team! I must say a huge thank you for the opportunity! Since its very early days I’ve been an avid (although mostly silent) follower of FabFree and now I get to join in on the fun as a blogger!

Womenstuff Hunt

Have you done the Womenstuff Hunt yet? If not, why not?! Hurry hurry because it ends June 30th.  The group is just 50L to join, and you’ll get so many amazing prizes.  You can read all the details on how it works in Bring on the WomenStuff by Caroline Walker. Be sure you don’t miss these other posts featuring the awesome prizes from the hunt as well:

Now let’s talk about what I’m wearing from the hunt…

  • My vivid pink outfit is from Vulnus by owner Vᴜʟɴᴜs (vulnuscouture). The blouse and pants are two separate pieces that come together in the hunt object for free. They are made to fit Freya, Hg, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink bodies. Vulnus is one of the sponsors for the Womenstuff Hunt.
  • The free jewelry set is from ZanSarai of Luminesse. You can click the necklace or earrings to bring up a menu that allows you to change options such as brightness, size, shininess and glow. Since it comes unrigged, the resize option is super nice.
  • C’est la vie, owned by Larcoco Ragu (larcoco.mathy), has this lovely free headband as their hunt prize. It is unrigged with a resize script and comes with an HUD that allows you to choose between 12 plain and 12 patterned textures.
  • And the adorable little pink hearts on my cheeks are the free prize from Silent Alchemi of -Birth-. They are unrigged as well and come with a tintable version if you would like to have them in a different color. -Birth- is also a sponsor for the Womenstuff Hunt.

Check out a close up for details…

Space Babe time!  I don’t actually know what that means, but my glowing floating keyboard denotes that I’m the one who does mystical computery things and gets stuff done.  You know, the cool girl in the van hacking into whatever room the others are about the repel from the ceiling into.  Get it girl!

Catsuits Make Me Purr

This awesome catsuit is an excellent addition to my wardrobe.  I sometimes feel a bit spacey-utilitarian, or perhaps like I suddenly need to jump on a motorcycle.  Or even just be in a music video.  Whatever your need, you can make it happen for free at Grixdale.  If you look at their Saturday Sale display (behind the main counter) you’ll find this wearable demo for free right in the middle, just buy for 0L!  Don’t know how much longer it will be there, so get it while it’s hot!

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

I’m feeling Spring today deep down into my toes, FabFree!  Let’s get to frolicking among some flowering shrubbery while humming the Rite of Spring and searching for marshmallows in the shape of tiny animals.  Seems like the perfect time to do some questionable things, but when Spring Fever comes along, you just do what the muses tell you.

It’s Tradition!

I’m pretty sure that Safira gets in the Easter spirit every year with a bit of a pastel-themed hunt.  I’m always happy for a bit of (non-challenging) hunting, especially when I can get some really cute outfits out of it.  Safira have that in spades right now, with a whole pile of pretty dresses, lingerie, skirts, tops and more.  I went with the Mika top and Vany skirt, which had me feeling playful and coquette.  Each item on the hunt is just 15L so you can get something sweet for not too many lindens.   Just look for the eggs throughout the store!

  • Maitreya

Turn Off The Lights, And I’ll Glow

Turn off the lights, and I'll glow
My looks have been all over the place lately. It’s just so fun to play dress up and there are creators making gorgeous things in all different styles, what’s a girl to do? Especially when there’s so much prettiness about for free!

Fashion MOGUL

My first stop was MOGUL. All I had to do was join the free update group and then claim the three free group gifts on the wall by the entrance! I just love these jeans, so sexy and fun. The gift is this “rose” color and includes sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass

I think that they look great with a simple cropped tank top, but I bet you can style them much better than I did.

Poser

What a fantastic name for a store – Unholy Duality. If you’re a poser like me then you’re going to love this one. Once your find yourself at Unholy Duality you’ll just need to join the free group and take your pick from the free group gifts on the wall. In this case you’ll be getting poses. Do I show poses too much? I realize that people who don’t photograph and/or blog won’t be into them really, but I just can’t get enough poses. Hopefully you feel the same way!

I guess that’s it for now. ‘Till next time. ❤

Life in a Snow Globe

Life in a Snow Globe

Did you know that the Christmas season isn’t actually over yet?  Today is only the 10th day of Christmas, which means that there’s plenty of time for celebrating still.  I’m still busy reveling until the 6th, and I hope you will too.

Epiphany

Ashmoot are taking part in one of my favourite traditions – and that’s giving gifts for Epiphany!  When I was young, I’d always check in my stocking on January 6th to see if it had been filled!  You don’t have to wait til the 6th for the gifts at Ashmoot, you’ll find them all under the tree.  I clicked on the boxes and picked up the shorts for 10L, jacket for 20L and the little furry pompom earrings were free.  There are a few other goodies there too while you’re at it.  It all goes away on the 6th though!

Sizes

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

Having a Snow-ball

I’ve often heard people ask if there are affordable ways to have a place to live in Second Life.  Rent can add up, and when you’re working on a budget it’s always nice to find somewhere that doesn’t break the bank.  If that place is really beautiful as well, then even better!  The Snow Globe sim aims to create a fun community living experience in SL, on an affordable scale.   You can actually get a home with 300 prims for FREE if you become an active member in their community.  That means taking part in events such as bowling, movies, game nights and more.   If you’re not so much into participating, you can still call Snow Globe home for 10L per week and 75 prims allotted to you.  Sound good?  Well head on over to the rental office HERE for further details!

Happy (still) Christmas!

Broken Promises

Broken Promises

Who here makes resolutions?  I am not one of those humans who thinks that they can magically change all their bad habits once the clock strikes twelve.  If you are, you are awesome.  If you are like me and haven’t managed to keep a resolution for…um…ever, then welcome to my club.  I was going to stop eating virtual noodles, but alas – the call of the noodle was too strong.

Adorsy-ble

Another way to start the year off right would be to head over to Adorsy!  They don’t come out with group gifts too often, but when they do I always have to grab it.  This dress comes in a full fatpack of colours and you can even mix and match the different parts of the dress – like the belt and the strap etc, to make it as you as you want.  Join the Adorsy group for 30L, and it’s all yours.  There are a bunch of other really great gifts there while you’re at it, so don’t miss out on those too.

Sizes

  • Maitreya

The call of the noodle, I say!

The Collective Shiver

The Collective Shiver

I can hear the collective shiver going through the ranks of FabFree readers as I stand here in the glittering snow in very very little clothing.  Thank goodness my avatar has built in heating (or at least that’s what I tell myself all the time), or she totally would have been sneezing all over the place by now.  I have seen her sneeze – but never shiver, so maybe I’ve got this theory all wrong!

Festively Frosty

This very sultry little slip dress is the group gift for the holiday season at Nanika!  The group is just 50L to join, and there are plenty of lovely gifts on the wall there.  This dress is the latest.  It comes with several different textures for the main part of the dress, and all sorts of different colours for the lace portion as well, so you can totally play around with the look.  I also added these snowflake lights which were a gift there last year that you can still pick up on the wall to add to any outfit you like!  Yay!
