Popsicle


Popsicle

Sometimes being an adult isn’t so bad, especially when it means I can eat popsicles in bed if I want to. Even better, here in Second Life I can eat popsicles in bed with no fear of having to do laundry later! As if this moment couldn’t get better, I’m here to tell you that much of what I have on, and the yummy strawberry popsicle is free. Keep reading for all the info or scroll on down for the credits and links. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Maai

The pretty blue and pink bra and panty set is a free group gift at Maai. The Maai store group is also free to join. This pretty set comes in the color shown and is sized for Maitreya Lara.

Harajuku Event Gifts

Pink Unicorn – The bright strawberry popsicle is the free Harajuku event gift by Pink Unicorn. This hold-able has a bento pose that should work with most ao’s and static poses (just add the popsicle last). You can pick your copy up for free at the Pink Unicorn booth at Harajuku.

Kotte – The vine-like leaf ring by Kotte is another of the many free gifts at Harajuku. It comes in gold, and silver, with right and left hand options fit for Maitreya hands only.

Cute*icles – The minty blue manicure I have on is the free Harajuku gift by Cute*icles. These pretty mesh nails come fit for Maitreya and Slink bento hands.

Vegas Tattoo – Finally, the unisex Asian inspired upper body tattoo by Vegas Tattoo I’m showing is also free at Harajuku. It comes in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Signature, Omega, Belleza, and Altamura bodies.

P.S. Aline recently showed off some of the Harajuku freebies in her post “Play the Game.”

Cheap Thrills


Sweet Sorcery

It probably is not a good idea to ask a witch if she can turn someone into a frog. She just might show you. It is however a good idea to ask me about the 12 linden gifts by Firelight and Nerdy Girl at the current round of Twe12ve. Most, if not all of the participating shops have a 12-linden item along with their event items and exclusives. I picked up the hair gift by Firelight and the clothing gift by Nerdy Girl. Keep reading for some info about each of these 12 linden finds, or scroll down for the credits. As for me, I’m gonna enjoy this frog!

Firelight

I really like this high ponytail hairstyle by Firelight. The long wispy bangs make me think of Bridget Bardot and that is never a bad thing. This hairstyle is the Firelight 12 linden gift at Twe12ve. It comes in 2 sizes and has a color change hud with the choice of either the dark brown shade shown, or a light brown shade. There’s no need to join a group to get this special price, just look for the little gift vendor at the Firelight stall at the Twe12ve event.

Nerdy Girl

The top by Nerdy Girl I’m wearing is also just 12 linden at Twe12ve. It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. This cute baby-doll style top has a color/texture change hud with 6 solid color choices, and 6 prints. Again, there’s no need for any group, just pay the gift vendor 12 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Phsique), Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Over It


Over It

Finally the weather outside made me want to put on a jacket rather than lift my hair off the back of my neck. It has been an unusually cool day, even for September. Love and Aline may be clinging to summer, but I don’t mind telling you I’m over it. Give me crisp cool air, fall leaves, bonfires, and all the deliciousness that summer is just too hot for. I also love a good fall wardrobe which wouldn’t be complete without a good jacket. The jacket I’m wearing is part of a group gift newly available at Star Sugar. While picking up my new favorite jacket, I also found a handful of free gifts at Star Sugar, one of which was this cute start studded bag. Needless to say I couldn’t resist. For more about each of these fantastic finds, keep reading, or you can scroll to the credits.

Star Sugar

First, the initial thing that drew me to this jacket by Star Sugar were the little bats. I love them! That said, the jacket is a group gift at Star Sugar, along with a matching skirt which I did not wear. The Jacket comes in several pastel colors, all with black trim and little black bats around the bottom. The skirt and jacket are fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Star Sugar group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available including this one recently blogged by Juli. Below is a copy of the vendor photo so you can see the cute buttoned skirt and the sweet pastel colors the jacket comes in.

Babe Fit

As I mentioned, there are several free gifts that do not require a group tag at Star Sugar. The gift that caught my eye the most was this cool little star studded bag. This freebie has a hold pose that actually worked with my mixed priority AO. Additionally the free bag comes in the black version shown, as well as yellow, blue, green, pink, and white. Definitely pick this one up!

In Your Dreams


Industiral Chic

Need a little personal space? In Your Dreams. Seriously, the Your Dreams shop has a quaint little industrial loft skybox as their August group gift. To fill your new space, I suggest the Wanderlust gacha set by Petite Mort now available at the Imaginarium gacha event. For more details about each of these fabulous finds, keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for the credits.

Your Dreams

The Your Dreams store group is 50L to join, and there are actually 3 skybox group gifts available. The August group gift is this modest industrial looking skybox. The textures are well done, and the extra high ceiling makes it seem more spacious. To get your copy of this group gift, and the others, head over to Your Dreams and join their in-world group. Then click the gift vendors while wearing your group tag.

Petite Mort

This shabby chic bedroom set by Petite Mort reminds me of some coveted thrift shop finds and some definite southwest style. I love all the little details in each piece and the equally detailed textures. The set is called “Wanderlust” and is 50 linden per pull at the Imaginarium event. I also happens to think this eclectic set pairs perfectly with the Your Dreams skybox gift.

Here are the Details:

Southern Summer


Summer Romance

Sometimes I wish southern summer evenings were really as they are often described in books or depicted in movies. The reality is far less pleasant. One more thing to enjoy about Second Life, summer evenings are every bit as pleasant as you want them to be. I got caught up in the sexy yet romantic look of this dollarbie romper from La Perla and settled into an evening picnic complete with mulled wine and sweets. Hopefully my inamorato will join me soon for a romantic evening rendezvous. For now keep reading for info about this pretty dollarbie find at La Perla, or scroll down for the credits.

La Perla

It’s been a while since I came across something pretty and lacy to share with you. Needless to say this “bridal bodysuit” by La Perla quickly caught my eye. It’s just 1 linden, with no need to join a group of any kind. The bodysuit/romper comes in white only. You’ll find this pretty dollarbie waiting on the second floor of the La Perla store.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink (Physique, Hourlgass)

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Legendaire

 

Hello Fab Free! It’s time for another edition of “Fab Free Designer of the Week.” For this post we are happy to feature Legendaire. I have to say, shopping at Legendaire feels almost like an event. There are so many things happening, it’s a party, and I for one am here for it! Legendaire specializes mostly in women’s fashion, including shoes, and accessories. The style is very feminine with pretty prints and bright colors. There’s also a small section of menswear on the second floor.  There are also a few non-clothing items as an example I even saw a car for sale! 

Before you head upstairs however, there are freebies and group gifts waiting for you just inside the Legendaire entrance. Right inside there are two tables with free gifts. These gifts are completely free, no group needed. Then on one of the square pillars you’ll see all the store affiliated groups and their gifts. Some of which are also free with the required group tag. This is where you’ll find the Fab Free group gift at Legendaire for example. Just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the little black gift bag with the Fab Free sign on it. The Fab Free group is of course free to join.

On the side of the same pillar you’ll find two of the Legendaire group gifts. The Legendaire group has a one-time join fee of 49 linden. Additionally you’ll see a teleporter that will take you to the Legendaire outlet/discount area with even more Legendaire group gifts and discounted items. Don’t miss these awesome finds at Legendaire, happy shopping!

Let’s Get Mystical


Bewitching

“Let’s get mystical, mystical, I wanna get mystical. Let’s get into mystical… “

Okay that’s not really how the song goes but it was kinda fun to sing it that way! Why am I changing the lyrics to an Olivia Newton John song? The Mystical Market of course! Don’t try to understand my pretzel logic, it’ll only confuse you more. The point of all this silliness is there happens to be a 5 linden hunt happening at Mystical Market. There are little black cauldrons full of witchy prizes scattered around the area. For this post I picked up 2 of the many 5-linden hunt prizes, the prize from WitchCraft and the prize from LOVE. Let’s get mystical.

WitchCraft

The black lace-trimmed dress I’m wearing is the 5 linden hunt prize by WitchCraft at Mystical Market. The dress comes in a several sizes and has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices.

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

LOVE

The pretty floral wall is part of the 5 linden hunt prize by LOVE at Mystical Market. This gift includes a pack of pretty floral walls that remind me of climbing flowering vines. They come in several colors with 3 versions each, and have little twinkle lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

There aren’t really any hints for these hunt prizes, however I can tell you that the cauldrons you’ll be looking for aren’t often hidden as much as they are settled in and around the landscape. Some are even hiding right in plain sight!

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Summer Hairplay – Chinook – Ombre
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Dress – [WitchCraft] Willow dress – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market
Manicure – {WitchCraft} Midnight Nails + Polish – Currently @Mystial Market
Cat – –Pixicat– Bastet.Sphynx RARE
Floral Wall – LOVE – Tall Wall Foliage Pack – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market

Fab Free Designer of the Week – KaraBaby


Hello hello Fab Free, and welcome back to the blog. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable week so far. Mine has been good, and creating content for this blog always makes it brighter. For today, it’s time for a designer of the week post with the spotlight on KaraBaby. A shop focused post has been long over due. If you’ve ever visited KaraBaby you know this clothing boutique specializes in mesh and applier clothing for female avatars.

Most of what you’ll find at KaraBaby is casual style dresses, and outfits. There is however a wide range of fashion. You can find everything from lingerie and evening dresses to shoes and swimwear. While browsing the “racks” I saw lots of bright colors and dainty prints. There are also some great opportunities at KaraBaby to pick up some fashion for little to no lindens.

Once inside the KaraBaby shop you’ll find the 35 Linden Sunday Sales items are still available to the right side next to the event items. To the left just as you enter you’ll see the free KaraBaby group gift, and the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. First, the free KaraBaby group gift is the pretty floral print dress shown. At this time the KaraBaby group is free to join. Next, the pretty shoes with vintage flair are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Additionally, there is a discount area upstairs where you can find great bargains on older items. Happy Shopping!

Golden Hour


Golden Hour

Hello Fab Free, thanks as always for being here. Petite Mort has done it again and put out an absolutely gorgeous must-have furniture and décor set for Gacha Garden. I’ve also got a cute little kitty friend from JIAN to share with you. I hope you love them both.

Petite Mort

Gacha Garden recently started, and once again I can’t get over the furniture and décor collection by Petite Mort. It is just 50 linden per play and there are 11 commons and 1 rare. The pillow basket is a Gacha Garden exclusive that is awarded after 20 pulls. The chair has 10 sit poses, and several of the items have resize scripts. I have included the gacha key for this set so you can see all the pieces. The lamp and chandelier are not shown in my photo.

JIAN

The adorable sleeping kitty in its funny fish bed is a free group gift at JIAN. Though not super recent it is one of a handful of free group gifts available. This particular gift lets you pick from several fur patterns for the cat, and 3 texture choices for the fish. There are also resize scripts. Lastly, there is a fun animation that makes the cat appear to yawn and stretch that can be turned on or off. The JIAN group is free to join.

The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

  • Bikini Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

What I’m Wearing:

  • Hair – [DUE] Michelle
    Head – Catwa Koura
