Blue Monday

Blue Monday

Hey there, fabulous readers! I was so tired of snow that I packed a few bags, hopped in my car, and sped off to the first warm, sunny sim I could find. There are several really cute shops to browse through here, so I think I’ll be busy for a few days. 🙂

But First, The ‘Stuff

Before heading out on my little vacay, I picked up a few items on the All-‘stuff Hunt trail. Today I’m sharing the Womenstuff Hunt gift from Ghee: this beautiful Navy Rosa Dress.

The dress is sized for the following:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

Now… if I could just find someone to help me with these bags…

All Dressed in Black Black Black

All Dressed in Black
We made it through Christmas Fab Free! What a fun but hectic holiday! Christmas may be over, but there’s still plenty of reasons to celebrate and have a good time. New Years Eve is coming up in just a few days. I personally always look for gold and silver sparkly things to wear for a New Years Eve party. This year I like the idea of this calf-length black dress from CHAIN and these stiletto booties from Hilly Haalan, both in black. Not only are they ultra sexy, they are FREE group gifts just in time for a party.

CHAIN

This dress. I don’t think I really need to gush about how pretty it is. Right now it is one of several FREE group gifts at CHAIN. The CHAIN in world group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.  The Sally Dress comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from black, silver, or violet. There are also 2 versions of the dress, one with the body chains as shown in the photo above, and one without.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Hilly Haalan

I wasn’t sure how these detailed ankle boots would look with the Sally dress when I picked them up as a group gift at Hilly Haalan. Honestly, I love the two together. I think you could just as easily wear these awesome shoes with a pair of fitted jeans and a swanky top. These shoes are one of three group gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join at this time, and all the group gifts are conveniently located at the landing point.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, N-Core, TMP

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair –  #taketomiWEST – Aishwarya – The Hills

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology. This FREEBie comes in the single lovely shade of red shown with two sizes, and an alpha layer. Just in case you missed my previous post about some of the fantastic gifts at the 2nd Anniversary round of Hairology, you can take a look at it here. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Hairology most of the participating designers have a FREE gift available, no group required.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bardot

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

I’m all dressed up for an evening out and a glass (or two) of my favorite wine. And just in time for my night on the town, Gos Boutique set out a gorgeous group gift. This one isn’t just shoes; it also includes a matching dress!

The super-sexy Bardot Body-Con Dress is sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. The matching sandals are for Maitreya and Slink High feet, and include a HUD for changing the texture of the lining and soles.

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! ❤

UPDATE 10/31: Gos Boutique is currently having a HUGE mainstore sale with incredible prices. And to top it off, the in-world group is FREE to join! I don’t know how long either of these events will last, so HURRY over to Gos before it’s too late!

Bunny Hop

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! 😮

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! 😀

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

Tell Me About It Scream Queen

Pastel Goth
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone enjoyed at least some of their weekend. Mine was uneventful but in a positive way. Even though it’s the dreaded start of the week, Monday,  I’m glad you’re here so I can share these sassy cute group gifts with you.

Tell Me About It Stud

This top by Shakira was one of those “I have to have that!” items the moment I saw it. You can’t put a quote from one of my all time favorite movies on something as cute as this fitted mesh t shirt and not expect me to grab it up! The quote on this FREE group gift at Shakira is from the scene in Grease where Sandy has transformed into the sexy “bad girl” version of herself, and her love interest, Danny, sees her for the first time. (If it isn’t obvious I think I know the movie by heart. lol) The shirt comes in fitted mesh sizes for Slink, Belleza, TMP, Maitreya, and Tonic bodies. There are several group gifts currently available, and the Shakira group is FREE to join.

Scream Queen

This sassy hairstyle is one of several group gifts still available at Mello. I even like the name, “Scream Queen”! This mid length style with side swept bangs comes with a color change hud that has 13 bright bold colors. You won’t find any natural hair colors with this gift, but that suits me fine. I really like the fullness of this hairstyle, and considering the Mello group is FREE to join, it’s a total steal.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – [Mello] Scream Queen – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join

Flying By the Seat of My Pants

Flying by the Seat of My Pants

Ready For Lift Off

I have to agree with Pru and Carson that something is just not right this week. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the moon, or what, but I’ve had a HECK of a week so far, and it’s not over yet!

To help get over my funky mood, Finnoula (my dog) and I headed over to the beautiful Winter Trace sim for a little fun in the snow. Turns out sledding is a lot harder than I thought, and I was so scared that I just closed my eyes and tried to hold on! Sadly, I wound up going so fast that I lost control and went flying through the air in a most ungraceful manner. Poor Finn couldn’t keep up (or kept her distance on purpose?) and didn’t care at all that I had completely humiliated myself with a face-plant at the bottom of the hill. She ran off to chase some deer, leaving me alone to pick myself up… along with my dignity! 😛

Coming in For a Landing

While I may not have landed on my feet, I was still glad to be wearing these awesome boots! Belle Epoque has set them out as a free gift at the current round of The Crossroads, and you can pick them up for 0L right across from the landing spot. They’re sized to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and the detailing is really gorgeous. There are several other gifts available at this round of The Crossroads, 2 of which were shown here by Carson. 🙂

Moon Amore has put out this “lovely shirt” as a holiday gift for group members. It comes with a texture-change HUD that includes 8 different colors and is sized to fit Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. The group is only 30L to join, and past group gifts are still available for you to scoop up.

Last by not least, my choker is the latest group gift from CHAIN. Choose from silver or gold metal options with the included HUD. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to fit.

Life is a Highway

On the road again...

I Can’t Drive 55

I finally had enough of the cold and snow and decided to take a drive in my new car.

I hadn’t been out driving on the Mainland roads for quite a while, and let me tell you, it is not for the faint-hearted. In one trip, I saw everything from the ridiculous to the… well, more ridiculous. I passed a WWII-era airbase floating several meters off the ground, a seriously overcrowded breedables farm, a “Kittycat Whorehouse” (for humans? cats? humans dressed as cats?), and a giant baby with Donald Trump’s head holding the Scales of Justice. I have no idea what that last one was all about, but somebody is clearly trying to send a message, LOL! 😯

If you’re looking for somewhere to drive, be sure to check out the Second Life Road Network Directory for maps and suggested routes. I did most of my driving on Routes 8 and 9, and there are plenty of Rez Zones (places to rez your vehicle) along the way.

Unfortunately, sim crossings still take much of the fun out of driving; once you finally get going, you’re tossed up into the air, underground, or into the water, before jarringly arriving on the road on the other side. Another hazard to watch out for is accidentally driving onto private land with super-speedy-object-return and having your vehicle zapped out from under you. DOH!

Be careful out there, folks!

Little Deuce Coup

I stopped for gas – and a quick selfie – on this lovely sim called West of the Rain. It’s not a large sim, but it’s extremely detailed and worth a visit!

My look was inspired by this fabulous leather jacket, which is the latest free group gift from BUENO. You can wear the jacket with or without the little shirt that says “Naughty is the New Nice” (which I think may be my mantra for 2017), and it comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies, as well as a “fitted” version.

I added the free Absence of Fear jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich (previously blogged by Love and Pru), and the Lacey Choker dollarbie gift from CHAIN. The choker is resizable and comes in both black and white (changeable via HUD).

SIDE NOTE: Since there was no Maitreya version included in the BUENO gift, I decided to switch over to my Slink Physique body. I had heard that Slink recently updated their mesh bodies, so I popped over to the store to pick up the new version. To be honest, I hadn’t worn my Slink body in a very long time because the HUD made me crazy, and I didn’t feel that there were enough alpha cuts, making the body difficult to wear with many designs. But I am happy to report that the updated body has many more alpha cuts, and the new HUD is split up into sections, no longer cramming everything onto one, crowded screen. If you own a Slink body, be sure to head over to a redelivery terminal at the in-world store to pick up the updated version. 🙂

 

On the road again...

Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Shoot, there’s my phone again. Probably Carson needing a ride. I’ll just let it go to voicemail.

I’ve been having such a blast driving my new Bentley Supersport! I picked it up as a free group gift at Sydney City, and I have to say that it is really well done, not to mention FUN!

Both doors and the trunk open and close, the headlights turn on and off, and the dashboard is nicely detailed. The engine makes a cool vroom vroom sound, the exhaust you see in the photo was not photoshopped, but actually comes out of the car when you drive! There are a ton of other options that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet, so be sure to click on the car to get the full menu. Note that the car weighs in at a hefty 69 LI, so you may not want to park it or use it as decor unless you have plenty of available land capacity.

My apologies to the lady people I ran over, and thank goodness the bus that hit me sustained more damage than I did. 😉

BTW, I’m pretty sure that Soylent Green is people.

Circa 1998

Circa 1998
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy the past weekend. I personally have been thankful for the reprieve from Real Life that Second Life offers. As it’s been mentioned multiple times already, sweater season is in full swing, and I’m never tired of hearing that. If given a choice, I’ll take sweater weather over any other type of weather! With that in mind, I was out shopping recently and came across a group gift at The Little Bat that I hadn’t seen before. This group gift sweater was the inspiration for this look, instant ’90s nostalgia for this girl! A grunge rock anthem playing in my mind I found a lace choker from CHAIN on the Marketplace, and finished the look with a gift hairstyle by Alice Project that I picked up at Hairology.

This over-sized black sweater with plaid accents is exactly the kind of sweater I want to wear with some leggings while I curl up, have a cup of coffee, and read a book or binge watch my favorite tv show. I also think it’s totally cute with jeans and some boots. It’s the perfect “Netflix and Chill” kind of sweater. The best part its, it’s FREE at The Little Bat, just gotta join the group and wear your tag. The Little Bat group is FREE to join. With the sweater you’ll also get a color change hud that allows you to choose between a few color options to change the color of the plaid parts of the sweater.

With the plunging neckline of my sweater, and that sort of ’90s style, I wanted to wear a choker style necklace. CHAIN has this perfect pretty lace choker available for 1 linden on the Marketplace. I think the detail of this choker is beautiful. Also, it has a color change hud that will let you change the lace from black to white, and the choker has resize scripts so you can adjust the size by clicking it. I have to admit, I kinda want to wear this choker with everything!

Finally, I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Hairology is celebrating their first Anniversary round. As a bonus, most of the participating designers have FREE or dollarbie gifts out to celebrate! The hair pictured is one of two gift hairstyles from Alice Project. The Alice project gift is FREE. In their gift you’ll get two hairstyles, Kelly (shown), and Nicki II, both styles have a “winter compilation” color change hud with a generous number of options. I think just about everyone would be able to find a hair color in the hud that suited their personal style. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on this or the other gifts at Hairology.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
