Linda, honey… just listen to me

FabFree: Linda, honey... just listen to me
Hey there Fabulouses!  I may have bookmarks in three books right now and I have stacks and stacks of to-reads, but I am always jotting down little lists of books I need to pick up.  One book reading essential is a pair of comfy socks, and Friday has just put a lovely group gift pair out in the group notices of the White River Farms group that I am here to tell you about today as well as a fabulous gacha item by C’est La Vie and a 50L hairstyle by Elikatira.
White River Farms VIP Group Gift - February 2019!

Really honey – listen to me, even if your name isn’t Linda…

I have mentioned before that you should totally be a part of the White River Farms group (HERE) and I really hope that everyone signed up when it was free, but now that it’s 100L it’s still worth every little penny with monthly group gifts from Elikatira, Friday and White River Co. in a rotation!  Recently Friday sent out the Honey Socks to the White River Farms group (you’ll find it in the past notices!) and they are just adorable with the faces on the knees and the sweet pastel pink top.  AGAIN…  this is not in the store… you’ll find it in the past notices of the White River Farms inworld group – secondlife:///app/group/600afe02-78d6-180e-f6aa-afc3d9b4e07d/about

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Flat, High & Boot
  • Slink Hourglass Flat, High & Boot

Other Affordable Finds!

To complete my comfy book reading ensemble, I have also added the C’est la vie Maitreya-fitted Iro Sweater that is just 67L per play at the C’est La Vie store in a gacha machine.  This machine is great… because with every play, you’ll get one of these comfy oversized sweaters.  No little trinkets or chokers lol.. the machine is just full of different colours of this sweater and the rares are floral ;).

My relaxed braid is Elikatira’s Maeve which is just 50L per colour pack as a limited time offer.  I believe this is for the Saturday sale, but it is on sale today still at the landing point if you hurry!

ps.  If you aren’t sure what I am talking about or why I am calling you all Linda, here’s the youtube video!  It’s an oldie, but a goodie.

Good boots take you to good places

FabFree: Good boots take you to good places

Good morning Fabulous Readers 🙂

Do you love boots as much as I do?  I have come across some really nice casual boots that include the socks which is nice because you don’t have to wade through a billion pairs of socks in your inventory trying to find just one little pair that doesn’t poke sock bits through the boots.  While these boots would look fab with a skirt or a pair of shorts, I even got these socks to go OVER my pants (Blueberry’s Julia Leggings come with an “Under Boots” version) that aren’t applier leggings.  I know.. it felt like a magical moment.

50L BOOTS!

Friday is participating at Epiphany and is featuring their fitted for Maitreya Olwen Boots at just 50L per gacha play.   The socks and laces offer texture change options, even on the commons. There are 8 commons and 2 rares.  Want them all?  You can buy a fatpack if you’d rather not play!

Because Puppies

FabFree: Because Puppies

Hey there Fabulouses!  FaMESHed and The Arcade both have some very nice gifts under their trees at their December rounds and they are all free!!  In this blog post, I am showing you one little gift from each event, but there are a whole lot at both!

At The Arcade

Under the giant tree at the center of The Arcade Event you’ll find plenty of free gifts under the tree for you, just priced at 0L.  No need to join a group, just grab those gifts!  I am wearing the gift by Enchante today, which is the HUD driven texture change Constance Choker. (Tip:  After you are done admiring the pretty tree – derender it! … it makes it easier to see all the gifts)

At FaMESHed

You’ll need to join the group to be able to pick up the free gifts under the tree in the center of the FaMESHed event, however the group is free to join.  I am wearing Elikatira’s gift, which is an essentials pack of the Juniper hairstyle (actually when I edit the gift it shows Tatiana too, but it didn’t deliver for me – did it for you?).  The essentials pack contains a little bit of everything from all the colour packs, so I’m sure you’ll find a shade for you.  It includes the texture change leather accessory too!

This sweet little dress…

This sweet little dress is called Indra and is available for sale at ZK Store.  I couldn’t help but pair this boho inspired frock with the Elikatira Juniper hair when I saw it!

By the Light of the Moon

By the Light of the Moon

Hello Fabulouses!  Under the light of a full moon, Ripley and I are pausing for a moment to catch our breath before diving right back into the hunt for more Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers!  Speaking of “hunting,” the cute little frock I’m wearing in the photo is a hunt prize that I scooped up for just five Linden dollars as part of the Skull N Bones Black Widow Hunt.

Beware the Spider’s Kiss

With a flirty and fun asymmetrical hemline, halter style neckline, and spider web print, that Tattered Widow dress will have you set for the season.  There’s even a spooky arachnid medallion at the top of the bodice.  Although the texture looks shiny in my photo, that’s from a face light I was wearing.  Normally, the fabric was matte on my screen.  To play up the holiday vibe, I added a witch hat and slinky black boots, but I’m sure you could create a more subtle look with different hair and shoes.  Since the hunt box contains versions for classic and mesh bodies, as well as Dinkies, I’m sure you’ll find just the right fit for your avatar.  To add this delightfully spooky frock to your wardrobe, simply teleport over to the Little 2 Large Shop and locate the potion bottle labeled “Spider’s Kiss.”  There’s a trail of black widow spiders along the ground to point you in the right direction, and a handy hint giver if you get stumped.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Small and Large (includes prim skirt, system top, pants, and alpha layer)
  • eBody
  • Dinkies
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Omega applier

While we still have plenty of moonlight left, we’d better be on our way.  Until next time, happy hunting!

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

My Milkshake
Hello again Fab Free! So maybe my milkshake isn’t bringing boys to the yard, but it should bring you guys to Limit8! This strawberry milkshake, among quite a few other things, is a free Limit8 group gift in celebration of the current Birthday round of Limit8. Most if not all of the participating designers have set out a free gift. All you need to do to get yours is head over to Limit8, join the in-world group (It’s free to join) and click the little brown paper wrapped presents at each booth while wearing the Limit8 group tag. I spotted everything from poses and props, to clothing and jewelry. There are even some housewares.  I picked out a few of these awesome free gifts to share with you. Also, thanks to Love’s much needed and appreciated help, you’ll get to see one or two of the gifts in action. I hope you love them!

Eyes – So after I took the above photo, I realized you really can’t see these gorgeous eyes by NamiiChu. They are part of a set of mesh eyes available for free at Limit8. The set includes 4 pairs of individual eyes so you can mix and match them. These pupil-less eyes have an otherworldly look to them that I think is really beautiful. To get yours, join the free Limit8 group and click the gift box at the NamiChu booth at the Limit8 event.

So Close!

Face Moles – The second above photo shows these cute face moles by Arise a bit better as well. This variation is one of 6 included in the Catwa hud. I think they are not only super cute, but a great way to customize your favorite skin a bit further. You can get this Catwa applier hud by Arise for free at Limit8. Once again, don’t forget that Limit8 group tag!

Strawberry Milkshake – Alright, so I’m a sweet-a-holic, and strawberry is hands down my favorite milkshake flavor. So Pru taking home this free Limit8 group gift milkshake by PewPew! was simply meant to be.  This detailed strawberry milkshake by PewPew! comes equipped with a bento hold pose, which you’ll see in action in the video below.

Booty Dance – Finally, I could not resist showing you this free Limit8 group gift booty dance by Sync’D Motion. Thankfully, Love was willing to help me out by putting together this awesomely hilarious video. The dance is too fun, and well all things considered the song went perfectly! I do want to note that because Pru is holding the milkshake by PewPew! while dancing some of the hand animations that are part of the dance are not shown.

Oh How You Sparkle

Full of Stars

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday (or what’s left of it, anyway, lol).   I had such a busy day in RL that the hours just flew by.  Isn’t it funny that that never happens when you are in the middle of a dental appointment?  It’s just when I want time to slow down that it seems to whiz by.  That sure is the case when I am shopping and exploring in SL, especially when I find wardrobe essentials for free like this star spangled skater skirt.

Oh How You Shine

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, I was able to scoop up the 4th of July Skater Skirt from Ecce Bellus completely for free.  With a bright waistband, navy and red stars scattered across a snow white background, and a generous cut, this adorable number is sure to lift your spirits.  Since the gift package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for you.  I chose to keep my look clean and bright by pairing my skirt with a white top, but I also tried red and navy shirts, and was quite pleased with those results as well.   To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, look for the Fab Free logo on the wall, click the vendor, then get ready to shine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • E Body
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!

  • TMP

Beach Ball

My pose is from [west end] and it comes with the ball to hold. It is a FabFree free group gift and of course FabFree is free to join. I said “free” a lot of times in that last sentence. Nothing wrong with that!
