Sweet and Juicy

Sweet and Juicy

Ah, watermelon.  The fruit that (to me) embodies summer like no other.  The bright colours, the sweet taste and the refreshing effect do have a certain pull on my spirit!  Now before I wax too poetic about a member of the cucumber family (which watermelons are…yowzas), I’ll just get into the fashion!

Fruit Salad!

The Fruit Salad Hunt has begun and there are lots of fun, flirty prizes to hunt for!  I made my way over to C!L and picked up this insanely adorable set that comes with the t-shirt and shorts.  To grab your own fruit salad-inspired outfit, just hunt for the big juicy strawberry at C!L and then pay 1L for the outfit! Your hunt clue is “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”

No more yielding than a dream

All a Dream

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear;
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

 

It was all a dream upon Midsummer’s Night

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt, that is. First my new gown. I am becoming a huge fan of Ari – Pari. Honestly, when I saw this designer was doing the Hunt I may have actually squeaked with a happy. For just 3L and a little hunting you get the beautiful gown with a HUD for eight colors of fabric and six metals for the belt. It’s just gorgeous.

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Butterfly

Butterfly

 

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away bye bye

Fly away

Want to be a butterfly too? Auradacious has the perfect Hunt prize for you if you do! And it’s a sassy butterfly too. The floral sash barely covers the essentials but if you’re brave enough you’ll be the most beautiful butterfly in the sky. You get these beautiful bento animated wings both scripted and unscripted, the sash, a little butterfly friend and the silver crown. All for a little hunting and 3Ls for the Midsummer Nights Hunt.

Sunshine

Like this super cute little bitty bikini, “Sunny”, from Lepidoptera. For 1 little Linden you get the suit and a HUD for … get this… 200 color and pattern choices! I know, right?! Plus, each piece is a separate and can be worn and/or colored independently. You may never need another bikini again!

Peace Love Music and Air Hockey

Peace Love Music & FoosballWaiting is always hard, especially when I’m waiting for Blue to get home so I can attempt to beat him at air hockey. The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ocacin, EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Hunt HintThe Bold LlamaTake a left hand turn and head strait back into the 70s. I heart 70s and Mustang Cars.

Pandemic Fashion

Staying Safe

Hey there Fab Free, I have to say that with all that is happening in the world, I am thankful for my Second Life. I’m also glad you’re here. While we are all “staying home” did you know that you can find “stay home” gifts on the Marketplace as well as in world? Some are available both in-world, and on the Marketplace. I don’t know about you, but with the higher numbers joining in on Second Life recently, I sometimes find teleporting to be cumbersome. With that in mind I picked up a few “stay home” themed free or inexpensive gifts from the Marketplace to share with you.

Koyuki

Nothing says pandemic fashion like a face mask. There are tons of face mask gifts floating around, this one is from Koyuki. It’s a unisex Marketplace dollarbie that comes in basic black or white with some minor color changes for 9 options in total. I liked that this mask is simple and fit well with some minor resizing/positioning.

:KOYUKI: 1L Mask - Stay home Stay safe

Maryfer

Who doesn’t love a little buffalo plaid now and then? I suppose it could be just me, but somehow I don’t think I’m alone on this. My and black plaid top is a freebie on the Marketplace put out by Maryfer in the spirit of staying home and staying safe. This top is fitted for Maitreya Lara only. There’s also a free men’s version of this top. It too is red and black plaid. The men’s shirt is fully unbuttoned and sized for Signature male body/bodies. There’s no specification as to whether it fits a specific Signature body, or all of them.

Unfazed & Zombie Suicide 

Lastly, the hand sanitizer spray I’m using is a free collaboration between Unfazed and Zombie Suicide. This fun animated freebie worked well with my AO and static poses. The bento animation makes your avatar appear to pull the spray from a pocket, spray hands, replace the sanitizer in a “pocket”, and then rub the sanitizer in. It also has the added option of letting you pick how frequently your avatar will bust out the hand sanitizer. You can get your copy of this free animated hand sanitizer on the Marketplace.

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all doin well. I am making it a day at a time. I think we all are in some form or fashion. Speaking of Fashion, I’m loving this yellow moment. I took a time out in SL, browsed through some shops, and just had some me time. Along the way I also picked up these yellow shoes by Thrive, and this honey bee patterned top by Kieran Stephens Designs for free. Something about the bright warm yellow colors really uplifted my mood, and the “free” aspect didn’t hurt. Lastly, keeping with the yellow theme, this cozy chair from Consignment is just 1 linden. Keep reading for details, and check the end for credits.

Thrive

I have a thing for yellow-work boots. Call it nostalgia, call it weird, call it whatever you like, I love them. These “B-Ball Sneakers” by Thrive remind me exactly of that shade of work-boot-yellow. They are also unisex in that they come in male and female sizes. Even better, they are a free group gift at Thrive. The Thrive group also happens to be free to join at this time, so don’t miss out!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Legacy Male, Signature Male, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh

Kieran Stephens Designs

Having picked up my sneaks at Thrive, I was on the hunt for something to wear with them. This cute off-the-shoulder cropped top in bright yellow with the honey bee print could not have worked out better. This fun top is a free Stay at Home Club gift by Kieran Stephens Designs. There’s no group needed, just grab your free gift at Kieran Stephens Designs. It’s that easy!

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Consignment 

This buttery yellow chair by Consignment is quite possibly one of my favorite dollarbie finds. Blue’s had it in the house as long as I’ve known him and I’ve always liked it. Today he let me in on the dollarbie secret. We double checked, and sure enough it’s still just 1 linden at Consignment. It has couples and singles animated poses, PG of course, and the textures are nice. To get yours you’ll need to find the vendor for this chair at Consignment, the vendor is small. It’s on the second level of the displays. You’ll see what I mean when you get there if you’ve not been before. There’s no group needed, just pay the vendor 1 linden and your chair will be sent to you.

Scrub a Dub

Scrub a Dub

Well Fab Free, it’s time for a good ol’ fashioned clean up.  I’m gonna tackle this kitchen and make it as clean as is humanly possible, because let’s face it…what else is there to do but disinfect right now?  May as well do it stylishly too!

It’s Belated!

C!L are having a little “belated” Easter hunt, with lots of bright and colourful goodies for those who take the time to hunt for them.  I happened to find this pretty bright pink dress (which only cost me 3L) as well as a matching pair of ombré pink tights (they come with an Omega applier and classic layers) for just 2L!  What a cute little outfit!  There are plenty of other colours to choose from at C!L, and all you have to do is hunt for the eggs at the store.

A Free, Full Bento Mesh Head from Genus Project!

Free Genus Strong Head

Hey Fab Free! I have the most exciting news to share with all of you! Genus Project is giving away a completely free Genus head! The head is a full bento, BOM head which is also compatible with Genus appliers and Omega appliers. I will be showing you how to get the head, some basics on how to get started and some free skins, makeup and eyes you can pair with the head successfully. For those of you who need a mesh head for the first time or wanted a Genus head, now is the time to jump at the opportunity!

How to get the Head

When I opened my SL notices this morning I was truly stunned and amazed that Genus Project has released a new free head as a gift. I ran to my computer and grabbed the head as soon as I could! It was super exciting and it made me happy. The head is a strand of Genus’ Strong Head type, so it is more mature looking.

Here are some easy steps on how to grab the head:

  1.  Join the Genus Project Free Group. Copy and paste this join group URI into your SL chat or nearby chat: secondlife:///app/group/b153906f-38dd-0dd6-d327-345bef9f446e/about
  2. Open up the Notices in the Group info tab
  3.  Scroll down to the notice called “Support from the Genus Project Team” and accept the attached object. The object is called “GENUS Project – Genus Head – Strong Face GIFT001 – Mocap”

You can also grab the head at the mainstore, although it will be packed and hard to get in. You can grab a free BOM activator HUD and some free skins at the store as well.

Skin Hunt at Insol

There is a Stay at Home/ Quarantine themed hunt going on at Insol right now, and they have some 1L Genus head appliers as some of the hunt prizes. I am wearing the Mila skin in the Milk skintone, one of the hunt prizes, and I also grabbed the free Insol body appliers while I was there. These hunt gifts will allow you to use appliers so you won’t even need to try BOM yet if you aren’t ready to. Each skin on the hunt is 1 L only, and the body appliers are free. The body appliers aren’t hunt items; just click the free body appliers near the entrance of the store.

Need some makeup for your new head?

I also added some Genus makeup onto the Strong head. I selected some basic ones that are good to start out with on the Marketplace. This everyday lip balm pack from Ottilie is currently on promotion for 1L, which includes genus appliers, BOM and other head appliers. I also found an  eyeshadow from Pout! which is available as a gift in their marketplace store called Vibez Eyshadow which is 1 L only as well.  These shadows come in some basic colours to start you out. To top it off, I purchased a pair of eyes from Myria for 1 L which contain Genus applier eyes in blue, green and brown.

Now we’re all set! I used my own custom shape, but there are also shapes for the head available for free at Jinx/Kumio’s mainstore and on the marketplace.

Have fun playing with your new free Genus head, Fab Free!

xx
