Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy

Isn’t it funny how attached we get to our virtual world? Our pets and our friends on the Grid become part of our ‘real’ life as much as they are in our Second Life. At least, I hope it’s not just me…

Beautiful Boy

Jack is sporting a new coat today curtesy of the brilliant Cinnamon and a lucky “J” on the group Lucky Chairs. This is the “Velvet Dapple – Bay” and it’s on the Lucky Chairs for the Cinnamon Group members. As with every Cinnamon design I’ve encountered, this coat is just lovely. The dapples are rich and subtle just like a realistic horse coloration.

The prize comes with the applier for your WaterHorse Riding Horse and your WaterHorse Riding Unicorn. Both sets of hooves are included. If you can’t wait for the Chair to toss up your letter, the entire Velvet Dapples series is for sale at the Cinnamon main store.

Horse Cuddles…

… are some of the best cuddles! And you can get your WaterHorse cuddles with Antaya’s latest free Group Gift for the Vsteed group. I’ve talked about the Vsteed group before and I’ll say again… this is a warm friendly group with tons of info and advice for all things ridable in Second Life.  So let’s talk about Antaya… if you want poses for your WaterHorse Riding horses or the Jinx Centaur… Antaya is a definite Go-To Designer. This pose is scripted into a bale of hay to sit on and is movable by editing that bale. The pose is made for the WaterHorse Riding Horse but I don’t know if it will work with the Riding Unicorn.

Riding Casual

Last but certainly not least is my cute casual shorts and top perfect for a summer day of riding. This is the “Twila” top and the “Tricia” shorts from Shae’s Designs and you can pick them both up for just 10L each at the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale at the Wash. There are eight cool colors for the striped Twila top and eight shades of denim for the Tricia shorts. And at just 10L, you can pick your favorites and not bust the wallet. But you’ll need to hurry… the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale is packing up and leaving town on the 24th!

It Was Just a Daydream


Just a Daydream

I sometimes have a habit of daydreaming, especially if I am near a window with even a somewhat interesting view. I don’t see it as a negative thing. Still, I’ll admit I sometimes find myself daydreaming when I should be doing other things. Today however, I have plenty to keep me busy. It’s Cart Sale time once again, and here at Fab Free that spells bargain hunting!

I’ve already browsed through the rows of carts at The Wash sim and no matter what your looking for, you just might find it. I picked up this cute little shorts and halter top set by Kuid for just 10 linden. The set comes with a hud for the top with several patterns and a few graphic choices, and a hud for the shorts to match them to the shirt. I think the back of the top is the best part of the whole outfit. This set comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus). To get yours, head to the Kuid Cart at The Cart Sale.

Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Just a Delicate Snowflake

Delicate Snowflake

Hello dear Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I said thank you for being here, so thank you so much! Really, there’d be no point to the Fab Free blog without you. That said, I’m happy I get to be here too! I still cannot get over how much there is going on this Holiday Season. I don’t know why, it is probably like this every year, but each year it always seems pleasantly overwhelming. So many gifts and inexpensive finds, so little time! haha Yep, it’s a good problem to have. For today’s post I picked up a few gifts at Redeux and I couldn’t resist another stop at The Cart Sale. As always, I’ll have all the information below.

P.S. Redeux ends on the 21rst so don’t wait! 

The Romper – This little black romper with ruffled shorts is the free Redeux group gift by The Forge. Simply wear your Redeux group tag and click the gift waiting at The Forge’s event booth. The Redeux group is free to join if you’re not a member. This cute little number comes in a single unlabeled mesh size. It fit Pru’s Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly, so that would be my “size” guess.

The Facial Piercings – Axix also has a gift at this round of Redeux. Their free gift is this set of unique triangle shaped facial piercings positioned below the eyes and under the lower lip. They come in the gold color shown, and can be resized and positioned. I would definitely consider them to be a unisex accessory. Again you will need the Redeux group tag to get this gift.

The Snowflake Tattoos – These pretty snowflake upper body tattoos are one of 10 linden items available at The Cart Sale by InnerJoy Love Tattoos. The tattoo comes in an Omega applier, a Maitreya applier, and a classic system tattoo layer. I love when designers continue to include classic layers with their applier products!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Ready for Fall

Ready for Fall

Hello Fabulous Readers!  With weeks now of high temperatures soaring well over 100 degrees where we live in RL, the pupster and I are certainly ready for fall.  Sadly, we are realistically looking at high temperatures around 100 degrees into October here, so it’s a good thing Rip and I can catch a bit of autumn in SL.  I found just the outfit to help me celebrate cooler temperatures over at the Cart Sale at The Wash.

Layers are the Way to Go

When those crisp mornings arrive, I’ve found the best way to deal with fluctuating temperatures is to dress in layers, and it’s “mission accomplished” with the Russ Outfit from Emerald Couture.  I really like the way the soft green t shirt coordinates with the plaid of the over shirt.  Dark grayish green cargo shorts round out the look.  I just love all the extra storage space in the large pockets in these pants!  Well worn seams and realistic folds contribute to the comfy feel of the outfit.  Although I couldn’t get them to work with my mesh body, a pair of brown and green sneakers for classic as well as Slink feet are included.  The outfit includes only versions for classic bodies, but I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza Jake body.  The best part was the whole shebang cost just 10 Linden dollars at the Emerald Couture cart!

Sizes Included:

  • Two versions of fit mesh shorts plus classic mesh in S, M, L
  • Classic mesh shirt in XS, S, M, XL
  • Shoes for classic as well as Slink feet
  • Alpha layer for shorts and shirt

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Coffee Contemplations

Coffee Contemplation

Summer Cabin Fever…

Who would have thought I’d be going stir crazy in my own house in the middle of summer?  I don’t count my numerous travels to appointments as relaxing outside time, but I am finding excuses to venture out just for a change of scenery. I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with my Kindle in hand just to feel the sun on my face and hear the morning birds sing.  I’ve been taking evening walks at a local walking path, and even dragging walking the dog when I’m up to it. All these things give me a sense of normalcy.

Take a walk and shop….

I took a walk (virtually speaking) down to The Wash for the Cart Sale. There are many items on display for guys with nothing over 10L.  It officially doesn’t start until tomorrow, but most vendors have booths up and running.  I picked out and outfit from the selection of men’s clothing to choose from. I always make sure I stop at the Dark Water Designs cart for some inexpensive clothing pieces. This round of the Cart Sale has three different layered shirt prints and I chose the Palm Leaf Layered Shirt. I matched it with the Faded Tan Cargo Shorts, each just 10L. I also looked through the selection of shoes at Poeme. Although the fitted sneakers are for women, there are a few patterns that could be considered unisex and using the unrigged version, I made it easily fit my man sized feet. I chose the Happy Blue Canvas Chucks, also just 10L.

Rest and catch my breath…

After all that walking I needed to sit down. Lucky for me I was near the Park Place Home Decor cart and found a Bright Director’s Chair, another 10L find. This chair comes with many sits for both males and females. It also has animations for drinking coffee or wine and even provides the drinks. I’ll just sit here for a bit and watch the passersby while i catch my breath. I hope to see you down at The Wash Cart Sale that (offically) begins tomorrow and runs through July 5th.
