My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Why So Early Kittens?

Snapshot_004Hey there FabFree readers!!  Today, as you can see…  I am up WAY too early tendng to the needs of my very needy kittens.  Why are they always up so early?  I wish I was a morning person…  Seriously, if I could wake up at 8:30 every day, that would be just fine with me :).  Work days, weekends, whatever – I think that’s a natural time for me to just wake up without alarms…  or cats.

These Witty Cats by the way, are available at this round of The Arcade Gacha by Mutresse for 50L per play.  There are several really funny/sassy cats to try your luck on.

I haven’t even had a chance to get dressed yet, but since I haven’t, I suppose I should tell you that this cute Flamingo Love Lingerie Set is available at Milk Tea as a free hunt prize for the Women Only Hunt!  The hunt icon you are looking for is a little coconut, and it’s really quite easy to find given the hint that you can pick up at the landing.  I’m including their vendor ad below so that you can see the full set up close.
WOH_Flamingos & summerI should also mention, since they fall under 75L that the items used to build the scene in my photos are mostly made up of items from the Dust Bunny Wanderlust Gacha Set (Arcade Gacha – 50L per play).  I have used the Hadera Caravan, Apothecary Cabinet, Belted Pillows and Bouquet Teacup.

The “Let’s Have a Good Day Coffee Tray” can be found in the FollowUs Marketplace store as a dollarbie!  If I am up anyways, I might as well eat and get on with my day, right? 🙂

Hey, Shit Happens

Snapshot_002
Good evening FabFree Readers! I have returned tonight to show off a couple more of the The Love Pink Hunt prizes!

If you are ever having one of “those SL days” and need a reminder that sometimes shit just happens for no reason, MELONopolis can hook you up with a big neon lighted décor sign!  It’s a pretty cool piece to have in your inventory and would be a great addition to lots of different types of decorating to mix things up a bit!   All you need to do is locate the hidden pink heart icon at the MELONopolis store and pay it 2 little lindens.

You might notice my dress is also pink, and yes –  It is also a Love Pink Hunt item.  This lovely pink mesh dress with the bow on one shoulder is also just 2L, available inside the hidden Love Pink Hunt icon at Dollle.

Enjoy your evening!

Here Kitty, Kitty

Snapshot_003
Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday evening at home than with tea, cookies and kittens?  It was just what I needed after a long week 🙂

My outfit today is designed by Moonstore, who recently put out these awesome Skinny Jeans with the swallow print as a free group gift.  This group is free to join, and there is another gift from February to still pick up too!  As I was there picking up the group gift, I spotted the Pleated Shirt nearby that was priced at just 75L per colour.  I decided to go with the cream, but there were a few to choose from.  This top fits great with the mesh jeans without interference.

I also wanted to mention that the OMEN Mischievous Tuxedo Kitten you see sitting on top of my backpack beside me is a free gift that you can pick up at this round of The Arcade Gacha. The vendor is priced at 0L just above their gacha machine, so no need to join the group (unless you want lol).  This is actually a wearable cat, although I have posed it instead.

Enjoy your week, and thanks for reading FabFree!

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

No Rain In Here!

Snapshot_001

Hey Fab Readers!  With the RL rain drizzling down my window, I decided to put together a sunny SL corner with some inexpensive, and free finds I have picked up recently in an effort to shake the shivers!

The build and many of the décor items are by Dust Bunny, and are available in a gacha machine at The Arcade Gacha that is just 50L per play.  In this photo you’ll find the following items from the set:

  • Acorn Treehouse
  • Window Table
  • Rocking Chair
  • Apple Pie
  • Warm Cocoa
  • Braided Rug
  • Coat Rack
  • Blanket Stool
  • Potted Rowan Berries
  • Postcards
  • Caramel Apples
  • Dahlia Jug
  • Melted Candle
  • Firewood Basket

Sitting in the window of my cozy corner you will find The Boogers Cuddle Bears which is available as a free gift at The Arcade Gacha right near the Boogers Gacha Machine.  I picked up the College Library Cupboard shown on the right hand side as a free group gift in the notices of the Junk inworld group which is free to join, and the I Love You Canvas artwork above the cabinet is 1L at floorplan.

The Leather Rope Bag in front of the window table is the latest group gift by Zenith (also free to join!).  This bag is wearable with and without a pose, or you can rez it as a décor item as I have done.

Additionally, the adorable Shiba Inu Dogs are by Half-Deer and you can find them at The Arcade Gacha at 75L per play in a variety of different posed pups!

Happy decorating 🙂

Directionally Challenged

Snapshot_003Whew it’s been a long day for me, but I am here now logged into SL for some blogging/shopping therapy! Guess what ladies?! Gizza has a new free group gift for you at the landing point of the mainstore!  This month, Gizza has released the sizzling hot summer dress I am displaying today in a trendy turquoise and brown zig-zag pattern.  I don’t know if it is pointing up or down, but it looks great in my books!  As well as this new group gift for women, you will find a new gift for the guys, as well as a whole years worth of previous VIP treats.  As an added bonus, this group is free to join!

Enjoy your night!

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!

Miss Dove

Snapshot_001Ready to start spreading a little more peace on earth, or atleast around the grid???  The Miss Dove set that I am displaying to you tonight –  includes the corset, feathered skirt, hat and tag along doves.  You can obtain this whole set for free until the end of the month, after you locate the hidden Peace on Earth globe hunt icon at Topazia.  I adore the ribbons on the shoulders 😉

I found that the Chop Zuey Peace on Earth Hunt prize looks very pretty in combination with these items as well, so make sure you stop by there too and snag the free Gloriana Jewelry Set that includes the Necklace, Earrings and Bracelet.
