Love Story

FabFree Post: Love Story

It’s a classic Love Story

Once upon a time, a girl logs on SL and gets loads of free gifts (the end) from the SL17B Shop & Hop SLife is great today! I popped in the sim and was again in a complete loss for words at the number of shops, sales, and gifts. I laced up my walking shoes and went about collecting some of the free amazing items I will tell you all about in this post.

But first, let me tell you about the group gift Candy Kitten VIP gift out right now! The Superstar Dress made me feel like a modern-day Juliet.  With 12 color options it is easy to find one that will match your mood. Each option is a colored version of a cute floral pattern that perfectly matched the early summer feel going on. So if you aren’t a member of the group, there is a fee of L$400 but I can tell you that I have received a LOT of group gifts that have personally made up for the fee in the last 6 months alone!

Superstar Dress Fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Though you can barely see my nails in this shot, I have to give a mention to alakametro<3 for their as always amazing nail appliers, which are free for you to run by and snag at the SL17B Shop & Hop Event! The gift includes a Maitreya Manicure, Maitreya Pedicure, and Omega Applier version.

Second Life birthday gift

It’s all about the Hair

All good love stories just NEED a Strong Woman with AMAZING hair! Doux delivered 110% without fail! This amazing free hair is also at the SL17B Shop & Hop and is a MUST snag while there! Coming with various sizes and color huds there is no way you cannot find one that matches your romantic mood.

Color Huds:

  • Black & Whites
  • Blondes
  • Brunettes
  • Fades
  • Naturals
  • Pastels & Ombre
  • Reds

A rose is a rose…

By any other name, would it be as sweet if it was free like the adorable Flowerpots from Astralia?! I don’t think so! I am in love with them and the moment I put them out I knew I was going to keep them up as deco (for as long as I keep THIS house up) for my romantic balcony. This free gift is again another item from the SL17B Shop & Hop (Have I convinced you to dedicate time to get in yet?) the flowers look like they were painted with watercolors to show some beautiful rainbow hues for your eyes to swoon over.  The free gift comes with two options, with and without metal – this is so you can either attach to your house or the railing.

Last by not least the final free gift I have to share with you in this blog is the confetti, it comes from Dahlia and again another amazing item from the SL17B Shop & Hop Event. (no seriously get those tp hammers going!) Inside the box, there are three color options (colorful, Halo, and Rose Gold) with two shape options, a circle and for those who want to be cooler, a square 😉 *pun intended* So why are you still reading? Get going and snag your gifts before the birthday bash ends!

Home Alone

Time Alone

Hi hi hello Fab Free! I sometimes forget about things I have in my inventory. A silver lining to the extra time I have, and so many of us now have, is that I find the things I’d forgotten in my own inventory. Go ahead and laugh, it is comical! I was genuinely excited to find this fun little nail file set by Besom. The files were a past Fifty Linden Friday or some such sale item that I’d purchased and promptly let drown in the abyss of my inventory. Finding them got me wondering if this fun animated item was still available.

I teleported over to Besom and found it right away. The best part? It’s still just 50 linden! Not only that, but there were 3 other previous sale items still available at their sale price waiting just inside the entrance to Besom. Needless to say, the set of fuzzy ears came home with me. Excited about my Besom finds, I remembered Aline telling me that Sass had a new group gift out. My tied top and matching undies are really cute, and not far off from what I prefer to wear when stuck at home alone.

The Besom Nail Files come in a set of 5 or so file boards with a full bento animated hold. The animation even worked with my AO. The set is just 50 linden, no group needed. The ears were just too cute to pass up, there are several ear types including the blue bear ears I am wearing. The full set is also 50 linden also at Besom.

My “quarantine outfit” is the March group gift at Sass. There is a one time join fee of just 10 linden for the Sass group, and there are a few group gifts available. This gift includes the top and panties in the color shown. Long story short, even in Second Life this is how I’m spending my quarantine, safe at home, no pants, delighted by things I’d forgotten I had!

Sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Searching for A Prince and Only Finding Frogs

Searching for A Prince
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here. I have to tell you, I wish I’d payed closer attention to the Enchantment’s Frog Prince Hunt. It was suggested to me by a friend. Other than Aline’s cute “Purple is Pleasant” post, I hadn’t really paid attention until now. I know! Don’t scold me too harshly!  The good news is that the hunt runs until August 31st, so there’s still enough time to search for cute little frogs. The even better news is that the hunt is free. Find the frog, and pay zero linden to get your prize! That said, I picked a few personal favorite Frog Prince Hunt prizes to share with you.

The Kissing Frog – The cute little amphibian in Pru’s hands is part of the Frog Prince Hunt prize from The Cove. This animated pose has your avatar give this little guy a sweet kiss. I know I’ve kissed a few frogs in my time in hopes of finding a prince! This little frog is a lot cuter though. To get yours, head over to The Cove and search for the frog!

Hint – Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

The Ring – If you haven’t seen Disney’s “The Princess and The Frog” you need to! It’s one I’ve seen many times, and a genuine favorite of the more recent Disney animated movies. I mentioned this because the Frog Prince Hunt prize at Dahlia is clearly inspired by that movie. This pretty pearl ring is part of a set of 3 rings, two of which are shaped like fireflies. I’ll add a photo below of the vendor ad by Dahlia so you can get a look at the entire set. If you have seen the movie, you’ll also understand even more why I picked this adorable ring set as one of my favorites!

Hint – This Frog is Curious
Dahlia - Bayou - Evangeline - Ring Set - HUNT GIFT

The Firefly Headband – I like this Frog Prince Hunt prize by Lagom because it’s whimsical and pretty, and I feel whimsical and pretty wearing it. The cute little yellow “fireflies” do seem to glow in an almost enchanted way. The headband comes equipped with resize scripts for easy fitting. I don’t think any princess should be without it. Just like all the Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt prizes, this one from Lagom is free.

Hint – Through the Mist

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – TRUTH Wind [Browns] – Past Gacha
Headband – LAGOM – Firefly headband – Free Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt Prize
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Blake

Don’t Steal My Sunshine

FabFree: Don't Steal My Sunshine
Hey hey, Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I’m chillin’ like a villain as you can see :).  I have found a couple of group gifts that are pretty sweet together, so I’ll be telling you about them in this blog post!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Nothing pairs better with a new swimsuit, than a new floatie to lounge on!  West End has recently put these fun Bento Animated Water Vibes Floating Rings out as a group gift for their VIP group (299L to join).  These tubes come in three prints and are loaded with a menu boasting tons of static and animated poses so you can use these as a pose prop, or inworld for relaxing in your pool!

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

Dahlia on a Wednesday

Sweet DahliaHappy middle of the week, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to a couple of days off.  After last weekend without a working computer (technology withdrawal – eep!), I am yearning for some retail therapy.

Speaking of Retail Therapy…

Ripley and I have been checking out all the Fab Free Group gifts, and found a sexy, strappy little number to share with you today.  The Lisa dress from Sevyn East Ave. features a curve-hugging skirt topped with a flared bodice.  It comes complete with a texture change HUD, which offers you 12 different options, including both prints and solids.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply teleport over to Sevyn, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.  Both the group and the dress are completely free.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Canine Mission

Every night in RL, I hide a dental treat for the pupster, and give the command, “Find It!”  It’s one of his favorite moments, and he’s gotten quite good at using his nose to sniff out the chew.  He gets so excited when he knows I am looking for the perfect spot to conceal his treasure.  Astrid’s post {HERE} about Eclipse themed gifts inspired me to send Ripley on a search mission, not for a treat for him, but for me this time.  He happily led me straight to Dahlia where I was able to scoop up this free Eclipse Necklace.   It’s actually part of a set, which includes a ring, as well as a texture change HUD that allows you to change the color of the moon and the metal.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but I could just have easily chosen white or a deep burgandy.  In order to pick up this jewelry set for yourself, you will need to join the Dahlia group, but it is completely free!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
