Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Hint “Help Freda sewing in the back of the shop and you will find your gift beside the sewing machines.”

Here are the details!

Zig A Zig Ahh!

Zig a Zig Ahh!

The year was 1996, and I was standing by a lake with a bunch of friends.  The summer had just begun, and all things grunge were starting to wear a little thin.  It was on that fateful day in 1996, when the sun was shining on the water and the snapping turtles were being especially jerky, that I first came in contact with my destiny – The Spice Girls.  The semi-jarring sounds of “Wannabe” floated at us from a nearby cabin, and from that moment on, it was all about Girl Power, Union Jacks, and saying “Zig Ah Zig Ahhh!” as much as possible.  It was meant to be, what can I say!

Group Gift Power

I won’t try and wax too poetic about my love for the Spice Girls, but they did bring me out of angry teenager land to a bright, fun time full of Chupa Chup lollipops and a blonde wig or two (don’t ask).  When I saw this group gift over at Una, I couldn’t say no.  I have a weakness for the ubiquitous catchphrase of the late 90’s, which still resonates within me to this day.  This top comes in black, blue and pink versions for your viewing pleasure! Anyway, to get your own hop over to Una, join the group for 50 Lindens, and this gift (plus a bunch of others) is all yours!  Score!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink

Shouting is Fun

Another important facet of Spice Girl-dom is to make sure you’re shouting as loud as you can (after all, they used to say “Silence is Golden, But Shouting is Fun).  I found the perfect lipstick for shouting over at Collabor88.  It looks just like a mini disco ball!  If you head over to the Sintiklia booth, you’ll find there’s a wearable demo which comes with appliers for Genus and Catwa heads as well as an Omega applier.  Pretty cool eh?

I’m off to slam it to the left, and shake it to the right!

There’s nothing quite like a little black dress for all occasions.  I found a really fantastic one, and I can truthfully tell you that anywhere I’ve worn this one, I’ve gotten compliments (no lie).  Read on and I’ll tell you where to grab it!

Feeling Lucky

There are some lucky boards over at Scandalize right now!  The group is currently 100L to join, but there are so so many gifts that it is beyond worth it.  The five lucky boards are for the month of February, so I’m not sure how long they’ll be around after the month comes to a close.  I picked up the absolutely lovely Axcid dress when my letter came up, and it is fairly versatile as it comes with the longer pencil skirt or a short version, and you can decide to wear the sleeves or not.  Go grab one yourself!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Have fun turning heads!

Cat Conversations


Cat Conversation

Hey There Fab Free! I don’t know about you guys, but some of my best conversations have been with my cat. My cat is also the only one who I can trust to not judge when I want to lay around in my underwear. lol Speaking of, this cute as hell bra and panties set is the free February group gift at Belle Epoque. The Belle Epoque group is just 10 linden to join and there are multiple group gifts available. The “Alena” lingerie set in red comes in a single mesh size, which even though it is not labeled, I believe is fit for Maitreya.

WellMade Billionaire


WellMade Billionaire

Hey There Fab Free’rs! Did your weekend go by as quickly as mine did? My week seems to be getting away from me as well.  I did however get to do some freebie shopping over the weekend thanks to the gifts at the Paradise Event. This new-to-me event was pointed out to me by this super awesome guy in my life, thanks Blue for the heads up! At the Paradise Event most participating designers have a gift or two at their booth ranging in cost from zero to ten lindens each. No group is required, simply purchase the gift for the set price. I picked up the gift by WellMade along with the gift by Beauty Passions. The Paradise Event gifts aside for a moment, how cool is this black and white limousine?! It’s absolutely free at Billionaire Motors, no group needed.

WellMade Paradise Event Gift – This dress by WellMade is a free gift at the Paradise Event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 8 preset colors, including 3 metallic options. The faux leather-like appearance of the fabric with the lacey texture gave me major ’80s glam rock vibes. I couldn’t help but channel my inner Tawny Kitaen! This free gift comes in several sizes and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (single size), Slink (Single Size)

Manicured

Beauty Passions Paradise Event Gift – Beauty Passions has this pretty mesh manicure out as their Paradise Event gift. I thought the pale pearl color was just right for my ’80s fashionista fantasy! It is just 10 lindens and includes a set of mesh nails for Maitreya hands and one Slink hands. There’s no group needed for this beautiful inexpensive gift.

Billionaire Motors Free Gift – Finally, the Limousine! So I heard through the Fab Free grapevine that Billionaire Motors had a cool free car available with no group needed. Of course, I had to check it out. There is indeed a very posh looking black car freebie at Billionaire Motors. However this limousine really caught my attention. It too is free to everyone, no group required. Not only is this limo beautiful to look at, it’s fully functional. You can drive this baby! It comes with a free Billionaire Motors men’s jacket, and a driving hud. There’s also a touch menu with lots of options. To get your copy head over to Billionaire Motors and look for the “Free Gift” sign, both free cars are waiting in a boxes with big gold bows.

In the Quiet of the Afternoon


In the Quiet of the Afternoon
Hello Fab Free’rs! Happy weekend! I’m so glad you’re here. For this post I have the most booty-licious sweater dress ever and the cutest chair and table set to share with you. Keep reading for all the details.

The Dress – The pretty sweater dress Pru has on is one of several free group gifts available at Ellnique. The Ellnique group is free to join. I love the long sleeves and high neck of this dress, it also happens to be very shapely. I don’t mind telling you I changed Pru’s shape a little for this dress, her curves came out a little too dangerous when she first put it on. This dress definitely has a corseted look to it. This and the other group gifts can be found upstairs.
Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Furniture – I’m not sure what took me this long to pick up the latest group gift at Kraftwork, it’s cute as can be! This “Gipsy” set includes the chair, table, and lantern shown. Each of the 3 items is copy so you can rez out multiple. I love the bright colors and playful floral patterns. This set is one of quite a few group gifts, all of which are furniture, landscaping, or other home related items. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join, and the beautiful gifts are well worth the effort.

Here are the details!

It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

To get yours, head over to Belle Epoque and join the in-store group. There is a one time join fee of 10 linden,

Hello October

Hello October
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, and a special hello to the month of October! Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Honestly, October is my December, and Halloween is my Christmas. Alright, I won’t subject you to any more of the thought of me singing, but I am still excited about the group gifts from Safira and HEC I have to share with you.

The Top – Love reminded me about this recent free group gift out at Safira. She really knows my style so well! The top has a satin-like look to it and is plain in the front with this cutely spooky skull cutout pattern in the back. This cute top comes with a color change hud with quite a few solid color options. The Safira group is free to join at this time, and there are quite a few group gifts available.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass

The Bracelet – One of the most recent group gifts at HEC is this cute bracelet. The letters spell the word HOT which gives this accessory a little sass! This group gift at HEC comes in a left and a right so you can wear it on either wrist, or both. It’s also able to be resized and is unisex. The bracelet has a color change hud with the ability for you to choose a custom color for the letters and the band. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!
