Hey gang!

We have a lot of fun here on the Fab Free Blog, but today I would like to get serious for a moment.

We know cancer is evil (I refuse to capitalize it), and that anyone can get it, even our beloved fur legged babies.  But did you know cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs?   It is estimated that 1 in 3 domestic dogs will develop cancer, which is the same incidence of cancer among humans.

So when I popped over to Foxwood for something totally unrelated, I saw the story of Ellie, who belongs to the girl who runs Foxwood.  Ellie is her Golden Retriever and Ellie has cancer.  I have lost two out of three of my Goldens to cancer, as well as my beloved Shih Tzu, Tara.  So I know the story all too well, and it is an issue that is very close to home for me.  I never had the chance to help my babies, but Ellie has a chance to fight and we can help her.

The three goldens in my photo, are a set that you can get at Foxwoods for only 75L (they are adorable too!!!  I love the one I can carry around and I’ve had three people say they wanted one too when they saw me carrying her!) and all proceeds go to help Ellie.  We all love the sales and we love the cute sl pets, this is a chance to enjoy both while helping a real pet have a chance at fighting the evil known as cancer.  (I have lost both my parents to it as well).

I’m not sure how long the sale is up for, I reached out but haven’t heard back.  I checked a little while ago and it is still up.

I hope each and every one of you will stop by Foxwood for this cause.  Cancer *can* be beaten, for both humans and our furbabies!

In just ten days Tara will be gone five years and my heart still breaks every single day (and someday Jian will make us a cute set of Shih Tzus so that I can have her with me at least in second life) (I keep requesting it!).  Her and Sumner (my Golden boy I lost to cancer) are pictured below.  I never got to have human kids, and honestly I raised these two from babies and I couldnt have loved them more if they had been human.  They were my kids.

These are the faces of canine cancer, the ones we must fight for.

Sumner (above) lost to Hemangiosarcoma at the age of 9 on 8.29.2004

Tara aka Tee (below) lost to Lymphoma of the intestines at the age of 12 on 11.25.2016

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Hachi & I

beach_011

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀

Sharing a Snack

Coming soon

There’s not much more I love in this world than puppies and horses.  Seriously, I could leave nearly all the human race behind and be on an island of puppies and horses, I would be one happy chickie!  Honestly, I talk more to animals, plants and inanimate objects than I do to other people most of the time!

Can you spell I N T R O V E R T?  lol!

Anyhoo!  Another thing I love is cute clothes that I can get for cheap or even better free!  Today I’ve got a super cheap cute outfit for you from Cremosas Store who is one of out Fab Free designers.  It is one of many in her store, this one is a romper that is overall style and soooooo cute for summertime!  This cute ensemble will cost you only 25L!  They do come in lots of different colors, but I chose purple.

It fits:

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

Epiphany Goodies

Hey gang,

Can you imagine I had *never* been to The Epiphany before this week???  So seriously what is wrong with me?  I had a *blast* and I found some awesome goodies to share with you.  I’m not sure how much longer Epiphany runs for so, if you want to go play in the plethora (my favorite word lately, can you tell??) of Gachas, go soon! But for the moment, let’s see what fun stuff I found!

You should always have a sidekick

My first fun goodie is my little Pomsky from HEXtraordinary.  He is animated and sooooooo cute (you can tell I have a thing by now for the pups!), he even looked up and what I was holding for the picture!  The gacha for these little guys is 75L

Speaking of what I am holding…

My sign, is from Nerth and was a 50L gacha.  Yes, I realize the whole pandemic is *finally* winding down a bit (yay!), but as an introvert, I have always hated people I don’t know getting in my personal space.  I mean, is it really necessary to bump me with your shopping cart repeatedly when we are both standing in line and the line is not moving?  I think the six feet rule should stay in place.  You stay in your space, I will stay in mine.  After all I have *always* followed this rule by staying out of the space of strangers, I think they should extend the same courtesy to me.  I *really* wanted to the sign saying “up for adoption” but didnt get it.  It would have been fun to see if anyone adopted me.  😉

The Jewels, Oh the jewels!

The lovely jewels on my forehead are from Okiya.  They were a rare from a 50L gacha.

Yes the backdrop too!

The building behind me is from ninety.  This was a 50L gacha.  It had all different buildings that you could use to make your own street!

Pugs & Kisses

Pugs n Kisses

The weekend is the perfect time to dress up and spend some time hanging out with a four legged date!  Heck, they don’t care if you dress up or not.  But it’s fun to dress up so I do.    This cute little guy comes to me courtesy of Dench Designs who are (is??) having a flash sale on them!  You get a plethora of pugs, for NOT a plethora of lindens!  This flash sale goes til Tuesday (great band back in the day!  lol), and you can get the puggies for only 32L!  If you can’t make it there by Tuesday (thats *not* a band…. that I know of.), then you can get the puggies for 60L.  Which is still a faboo price!  You just rez the pug bed and click it and choose what you would like the pug to be doing.  I made him sit so he could be pretty for my picture.  This is the ad which shows your pug activity choices:

For the love of Pug Ad

Each pug is indeed animated and soooo stinking cute!  They are perfect company for that at home with my pug date night!  😀  Grab the popcorn and a movie and get ready for lots of pugs and kisses from your little four legged date!

Vintage Modern

Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Have you every visited a quaint little bed and breakfast and walked in and fell in love? Then entered the bathroom and said to yourself OMG I want this. The wanting is easy in the real world, but not as easy to achieve the dream bathroom in real life. Not to mention it may not go aesthetically well with the rest of your home décor. Here in Second Life you can have it all! You just have to find the pieces to make it come true. The Muniick Chalet Rue Chabot Bathroom Add-On. Is a great start, if you love vintage bathrooms like I do.

Finally, this Happy Weekend offer also includes a décor pack with an un-linkable bath caddy, towels, rug, toilet paper caddy, and a potted plant. If you like the clawfoot tub, and who wouldn’t, it’s also on sale separately for 60 linden. It too has touch menu color change options as well as many detailed features.

Manly Weekend - 50L$

JIAN

Finally, I’m sure you noticed the cute fluffy little rascal settled into his basket full of toys. This Bichon pup is a free group gift at JIAN. This adorable doggy is animated, he (or she/they) has different fur texture choices, and can be named. The JIAN group is free to join so you don’t have to resist bringing this fur baby home. The cute basket with toys means I get to bring him into any room in the house, whether I’m relaxing in the living room, or picking up the bathroom. I hope you enjoy this bundle of fluff as much as I do. Have a great weekend Fab Free!

Merry Everything and Happy Always

Merry Christmas

Merry Everything and Happy Always Fab Free!

❤ Prudence & Roscoe

So we have survived Monday, some of us just barely, and are inching toward Christmas at a faster pace than I am mentally, physically, or financially prepared for! Lucky for me and all of us in the Fab Free Second Life community, there are tons of great gifts available so we can look cute and decorate for the Holidays without breaking the bank. I found this cute little rover on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. I named him Roscoe after my first dog growing up. The little guy was so festive, I couldn’t pass him up. Plus he looks great under my Christmas tree.

The tree is another Marketplace find, and my photos don’t do this dollarbie from a shop called Love justice. It shimmers and sparkles and is really pretty all on its own. Not to mention that I love the slightly gothic element of the spider webs.  I left mine as it is, just added a “homemade” tree skirt, but I think it would be fairly easy to dress this tree up even further with your own decorations if you’re so inclined.

Merry Christmas Outfit

Now that my house and my dog are in the holiday spirit, I thought I’d do a little dressing up myself. BYRNE recently sent out a super cute sweater dress to their subscriber members. The dress is a cozy yet sexy off-the-shoulder v-neck, with a subtle swirl pattern that makes me think of the iridescent patterns on bubbles. This FREE gift includes the mesh dress in a white version as well as the black version pictured. Simply join the subscriber at the BYRNE main location and check the notice history to receive this gorgeous gift.

To add some holiday cheer to my outfit, I added this pretty little holiday ribbon from Indulge Temptation. This ribbon is a FREE gift at the current round of Designer Circle. The ribbon is mesh and has re-size scripts for easy fitting. Pretty accessories like this one are a great way to spruce up any outfit for the holidays. No need to join a group for this one, just buy the gift for zero lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
