Poppin’ champagne

I may have found the house to last for a few months! As you may know, I change houses quite often, and it’s a running joke with the people in my circle. I’m no machine, but I seriously love decorating so much it seems like it’s one of the things I do the most. Not really a hobby but more like, “oh snap, I don’t have a home down…” and then I need to decorate it, not only to my SL standards but also with my personal style mixed in.

G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S

{moss&mink} has updated their VIP Group Gift wall with some items perfect for Valentines Day. I picked up the Halo Cat Cushion this round, previously it was released for a Halloween hunt in black, so I found the pair of them would be super cute for my collection.

While you’re there picking your Free VIP Group Gift make sure you also get your monthly store credit! It adds up over time so that’s a bonus for the group fee of L$500. Which yes L$500 is a bit heavy for a group price, however, you get several perks and over time you’ll have an amazing collection of group gifts.

Music of the soul

Fabfree Post: Music of the soul

Sing me a song

It’s been awhile Fabsters, I took a much-needed break from everything to revamp my creative juices again. It was a heck of a year for all of us and I didn’t realize how much I’ve been letting my artistic side slip until Christmas hit and I found myself completely burnt out. So I’m back after a little vaca from my sl duties and I now I’m back to burning brighter than before!

So thank you lovely Fabulous Readers for not leaving me in the dust and for those of you who sent loving words to me, telling me I’m missed know it meant a lot. xoxo You are all a part of my extended family and when I share my life and pictures know you are seeing me in them. ❤ you all!

 

So on to the Group Gift!

Some of you know I’m a huge fan of Ariskea and their latest free group gift is one of my new favorites! This adorable little gold deer is featured on a pile of fluffy white snow, (something my area is missing currently) along with some flakes that shine, and how can you forget the silent night song? The music box is by far one of the smallest free gifts I have picked up that has a long-standing impact on my heart.

I hope you have time to swing by Ariskea to snag their group (Fee is L$150) to get this free group gift and older ones at their shop now!

Ready for the snow

FabFree Post: NYC

Ready for snow!

It’s time we get some snow where I am in New England! I love the moment after it stops snowing and everything is coated with white snow or ice, no one around, and you can hear nothing but your own breathing. That is my favorite moment, it makes you pause and appreciate all the hustle and bustle of the season.

So what is your favorite winter moment?

Apple Fall is having an amazing sale where EVERYTHING in their shop is L$50 or less! I was able to snag quite a few freebies from their in-world shop, which by now is super hard to get into so get those TP Hammers ready and set. Mostly everything in their outlet is FREE with a few exceptions.

Make sure you grab the shop group if you plan to shop in-world because you’ll get a great deal on top of that low price! The lowest price I saw besides FREE was L$38, so use that group tag!! There is no set date of when this deal will end, I assume very soon so get there asap!

Make a Scene

Making a Scene

One of my most favorite things to do in Second Life is decorate. I am constantly rearranging my little house and decorating for the seasons and holidays. And I’m really getting into the landscaping too. I love being able to make a perfect scene.

And speaking of scenes… I was able to put together this quite little scene in a coy corner of my house all for free. I dropped by one of my most favorite decor designers today: Reka Nutmeg and was so excited to see a ton of free gifts set out. Now, I hadn’t stopped by the main store in some time so many of these gifts may have been out for awhile but they were all new to me.  Just join the free Group and scoop up your treasures!

As with all free gifts and group gifts on the Grid, these could go poof at any time. So don’t wait around too long to go make your own scene!


Wake me up

FabFree Post: Wake me up

Wake me up inside

And after typing out “wake me up inside” all I can think about is “wake me up when September ends” *you are so welcome* because I am super excited for all the pretty fall colors mixed with the end of summer green! Fall has to be my second favorite season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pie, Freshly Baked Cookies, Festivals, Falling Leaves, and so much more puts this season on top just under Spring. The days become shorter, the nights become colder, snuggling under a blanket watching movies, warm fuzzy socks.. all highlights of a typical Bunnie Fall.

Early last week BackBone gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming free group gift, I had to very patiently wait until it was released, and let me tell you, this GLORIOUS Warrior is my new favorite decor item, hands down! The detail on the statue alone made my jaw hit the floor. I know L$500 is a hit but if you think about all the past free group gifts you can snag while there it makes the cost small in comparison. It comes with the ability to turn the water sounds up or down, which is amazing because I love the sound sometimes but when I’m working it could be slightly distracting to me.
Then again that could just be a “me” thing.

Belle Epoque has put out a very inspiring dress for 25LT Sale (sale prices only good for Tuesday 9/15) coming in 8 colors for L$25 each with options for short and long. Both dress styles of the dress are classic and could be used for RP or even a new age shot because we all know vintage looks come back over and over again 🙂 So soon we will all be using standard avatars again ❤ JK!

Fits:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

In My House

In My Home

Hey Fab Free! I have a few really cool freebies to show you, which is almost everything in this photo except for my hair. Let’s start with the decor, and then move on to my outfit after.

Hip Decor

This great wall tapestry is amazing, and a free gift at Petite Mort. It’s called the “Compassion tapestry” and it’s branded with a number of slogans about human rights and social issues. It works perfect in my living room, so I was quite pleased with this gift! No group is needed for this gift, just buy it for 0L on the gift shelf at Petite Mort.

I am also showing a couple of free stay at home club gifts by Rune Creation, including this funky chair and the camo rug. There are a whole wall of free stay at home gifts, so collect them up while you still can.

The Outfit

The top I have on is another free gift at Petite Mort, which you can also get for 0 Linden.  You can’t see it very clearly in my photo, but it says “Black Lives Matter” on it and it fits perfect. I love it, plus is goes with my new banner perfectly. The skirt, which I simply adore, is currently a free lucky letter prize at Oubliette, the partner store of Petite Mort, which needs the free group to win.

Sizes included (Top & Skirt):

    • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
