Pastel Ice Cream

Pastel Ice Cream

Another magical element of summer that I enjoy all too much is the plethora of frozen treats you can get!  It seems to me that ice cream is no longer just a thing you have on its own, but a crazy amalgam of as many sweet things as one can stuff into a small container.  I’m not complaining about the craziness of today’s ice cream, on the contrary…I say bring it on and why not dress just as sweet to match?

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards for the month of July over at Safira!  5 cute outfits (plus the 5 that went up last month) that are all sorts of adorable!  I got this two piece look while hanging out there, and you must admit that it’s really sweet.  I like a good pleated skirt, and if it’s turquoise I surely can’t complain!  To get yours, just join the Safira group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are loads and loads of great gifts to pick up while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Magical Beret

I told you all yesterday about the free gifts over at The Crystal Heart Academy, but I had one more thing I really wanted to show you that I picked up while I was there weaving my way through the magic wands and sparkles.  This hat and hair by Ayashi is simply divine, don’t you think? It just makes me super happy.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the event, and you can wear it with or without the hat.  It comes in several hair colours as well as a super useful HUD to change the hat colour.  Cuteness overload!

Geez, this ice cream is so tasty!

Calm Down


Calm Down

Hello hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. I can’t explain exactly why, but I feel like I relate to this group gift sleep mask by e.marie so much! Sometimes I do feel like everyone needs to calm down and other times I’m the one that needs to calm down. haha

Either way, I think the eye mask is a must-have. It comes in several colors, and each color has an “up” version worn pushed above the eyes, and a “down” version as shown in the above photo. Also at e.marie is the perfect mix and match manicure for the month of June. There are 4 rainbow themed choices, and the hud allows you to choose the look for each nail, or make them all the same. This e.marie group gift comes fit for Maitreya hands, Slink hands, Belleza hands, and Vista hands. The e.marie group is just 50 linden to join, and there are past group gifts still available.

Lastly, have you seen all the new Fab Free group gifts? There have been lots of updates to the group gift listing recently. The bra top Pru is waring is the recent Fab Free group gift by Eyelure. I think it makes the perfect “lounge around the house” top. This gift comes in several sizes, and is free to al Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the pink giftbag next to the Fab Free group joiner at Eyelure.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

The TRUTH and secrets

FabFree: The TRUTH and secrets
Good morning FabFree Readers! If you can’t trust your best girl with your secrets, who can you trust right?  Pru and I are constantly buzzing in each other’s ears about this, that and the other thing and last night was no exception.  She was so excited to tell me about the new TRUTH group gift that she teleported right over to show it to me.

Of course I was already wearing it too, because who doesn’t put on their new TRUTH gift as soon as it comes through, right?  Pru arrived with her hair styled down with no shoulder tendrils, while I had mine styled up with the falling shoulder tendrils.  It made me giggle a little, because it’s a perfect explanation of our friendship. We may look at fashion and style in completely different ways, but we are on the inside the same kindred spirits most often on the same wavelength.  It was after all the perfect way to display the gift.. differently!

About the latest gift

The TRUTH inworld group does have a join fee of 350L (which is roughly the cost of a single pack of hair these days!), but in the group charter promises 12 gifts per year, and in the past most of these gifts have been full fatpacks with stylist HUD systems!  This new gift by TRUTH is called Kaijah and includes all the colours along with a butterfly headband and several options in the hair stylist HUD.

Hello October

Hello October
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, and a special hello to the month of October! Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Honestly, October is my December, and Halloween is my Christmas. Alright, I won’t subject you to any more of the thought of me singing, but I am still excited about the group gifts from Safira and HEC I have to share with you.

The Top – Love reminded me about this recent free group gift out at Safira. She really knows my style so well! The top has a satin-like look to it and is plain in the front with this cutely spooky skull cutout pattern in the back. This cute top comes with a color change hud with quite a few solid color options. The Safira group is free to join at this time, and there are quite a few group gifts available.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass

The Bracelet – One of the most recent group gifts at HEC is this cute bracelet. The letters spell the word HOT which gives this accessory a little sass! This group gift at HEC comes in a left and a right so you can wear it on either wrist, or both. It’s also able to be resized and is unisex. The bracelet has a color change hud with the ability for you to choose a custom color for the letters and the band. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Queen Bee

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday! Pru is serving some serious face on this Sunday-funday, and with good reason. I have two group gifts from Swallow to tell you about, and the August group gift from e.marie. I hope you love them.

Swallow – It had been a little bit since I’d stopped in Swallow to check out all their cool jewelry and such. So I did, and I’m always impressed with their group gift section. During a recent shopping excursion at Swallow I picked up this beautiful bee septum piercing. It comes with a hud that lets you pick from several metallic tones, and switch the full bright on or off. Also it has resize scripts for easy fitting.

The second gift I picked up at Swallow (out of the many available) is a pretty lip applier set. There are 2 applier sets, with 3 lipstick shades (a red, a purple, and a pink) each. I will say that the colors are very similar in the two sets, one set seems just a bit more matte than the other maybe. That said, they are all very pretty on. The appliers work with Catwa heads only. The Swallow group does have a one time join fee of just 40 linden.

E.Marie – The super cute manicure Pru has is the August group gift at e.marie. The set is a fun mix of black, white, gold, and what I would call a rose-gold color with cool graphic images and patterns. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can get a better look. This manicure set from e.marie comes in several fits/sizes. Also, there’s a regular version, and a “shine” version. These are mesh nails, not appliers! The e.marie group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden.
Hand Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara

That Crazy Feeling Again

That Crazy Feeling Again

I’m having another one of those weird “put me in a bodysuit, stick some stickers on me and let me dance like a lunatic” moments.  I feel like they may happen more often than I’d like to admit… Luckily I found some great gifts to get me through this moment of insanity… though if you’d like to join me, the more the merrier (and the madder!).

Flowing Free

I was excited to hear that Pr!tty has found another more permanent home again, and to celebrate there are a bunch of new group gifts out!  There are also a whole bunch of older ones if you didn’t get the chance to grab them last time around.  You can join the Pr!tty group for 200 Lindens, but there are more than 10 gifts to be had, most of them fatpacks of hair, so it really is a great deal!  Today, I’m wearing the Yoshi hair, which is super adorbs with little space buns on the top.  Love it!

Outside the Box

Asteroidbox have released another group gift as well, and it’s this slick bodysuit which comes in four bright summery colours.  The electric blue really tickled my fancy, so I slapped it on and got a bit wacky.  Isn’t it nice?  It makes me very happy to tell you the truth.  You can join the Asteroidbox group for 75 Lindens and pick up a few other gifts while you’re there.

Purple is Pleasant

Purple is Pleasant

Ah, the colour purple.  There’s something so wonderful about it, and I’m not quite sure what it is.  I would gladly talk about the magic of all hues ranging from lavender to grape, but I won’t bore you with gory details.  All you need to know is this pretty purple top (and my hair!) are completely FREE!

Enchanting

The Enchantment hunt is happening right now, and the theme is The Frog Prince!  The event is full of lovely things to buy, but stores participating in the hunt have lots of free goodies as well.  I headed over to Love and found the little frog hiding in the store.  Inside were a whole bunch of fun things, like my fringed bikini top (comes in loads of different colours and sized for Hourglass and Maitreya) and my long hair (oh yes, it’s a fatpack)!  There are even cropped t-shirts and knickers in the box, so you’re getting a really great cross-section of FREE gifts!  Make like a frog and hop to it!

Ah, purple.  My fave.

Mixing it Up

Mixing it Up

Have you ever felt both girly and tough at the same time?  I mean, in the way that you can’t decide which way to go?  I always used to fill out those quizzes in magazines like Seventeen and YM back in the day and I never fit into one category only.  I’d always sit somewhere between girly, goth, bohemian and sporty.  You can imagine it was slightly frustrating – I never knew which style I really was, but in a way it was completely freeing.  I could be whatever I wanted without any quiz dictating who I should be.  I guess that’s what this look is about!

Search for Strawberries!

I was over at The Guest List cart sale, and they’ve set up a fun little hunt!  If you keep your eyes peeled, you will notice that on most carts there is a little strawberry hiding – inside is a free gift!  It may take a little time for the strawberry to rez, but it is there, I promise.  I found the prize on the Salty cart, and how cute is it?  It’s this super adorable little blue checked romper.  It ticks the box of being absolutely girly and fun!

Don’t Choke…

There’s a new event on the grid called Output!  They have a group gift out, which is this cute little spiky choker by Little Fox that I picked up by joining the Output group!  The group is free to join, so that makes this little bauble completely free!  I guess this choker represents the tough side of me – whatevs, I think it all works well together!  Go grab yours!

Time for a picnic, I think!
