A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

The reams of writing that has taken place over the years about the importance of the little black dress is longer than I care to imagine.   Any nattering I can do about the importance of one is only sure to muddy the waters of deep thinking about how one must needs have a LBD for any occasion.  Instead, perhaps I’ll discuss how much I love Froot Loops.  And then, I’ll wonder what human sat down to think it would be cool to write the word “froot” instead of “fruit”.  These are the things that keep me up at night!

Lucky Girl

There are two new lucky board prizes over at Luas!  You may have guessed by now that this little black dress is one of the two prizes that are currently available, the other being a red dress.  The letter A came up pretty quick for me this time, so I suggest you grab a bunch of friends and head over (preferably 26 of them, all with a different letter of the alphabet starting their name? eheheh) and then wait til your letter comes up.  The Luas group is 50L to join, but there is a huge wall of monthly group gifts and the lucky letter boards get changed up pretty often.  Totally worth it!

A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

It was high time to head to the beach.  After a long day of work, buried under pages and pages of who knows what drivel,  I looked at my watch and thought “you know…I need some vitamin sea today”.  I put on my unnecessarily complicated sandals (but so fashion!) and slipped into something summery then headed down to feel a bit of warmth.  I was ever so glad to have brought my camera with me, just so I could capture a bit of summer and carry it with me wherever I went afterwards.  A few snaps of palm fronds will keep me going until I can escape again!

Feeling Lucky

I was a bit inspired for some warmth today after I saw the newest lucky boards at Luas.  This cute little outfit had me dreaming of warmer climes the minute I saw it (you have the option to add or remove the tied jacket)!  To gain access to the lucky boards at Luas, just join their group for 50L, then wait for your letter to come up!  There are also loads of really great group gifts for you to pick up while you’re there, making this group join fee ever so worth it.

Roman Sandal Empire

Looks like Empire are having a bit of an item retirement sale at the moment.  The store isn’t shutting down, but all items in the store are on sale before they disappear forever, making room for the new.  Pretty much ever pair of shoes and accessories are 199L (some 99L!) for fatpacks, which is an awesome deal.  However, what caught my eye was the 35L per pull gachas you’ll find at the back of the store.  I got these awesome sandals as well as the fun glasses for just 35L each.  Worth a shot!

A Return to Darkness

A Return to Darkness

Back in my early days of Second Life-ing, I was straight up a goth girl.   Probably because it’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, and it was fun to explore all the deep, darkness of it all.  I know I’ve blathered about this before, about being who you want to be in SL, etc.  But what I do want to touch upon is how FabFree made me realise that I didn’t have to have just one style.  When I started blogging here back in 2017, I realised that there were so many different freebies hanging around the grid that I could play around with, and since that moment I haven’t really looked back – I just get what I like!  But it is nice to revisit old friends, isn’t it?

The Deep Dark

I’m getting that Morgan le Fay feeling today (you know, when she’s an antagonist), and bubbling up some magical devilry in the depths of the earth.  To get this look, I need look no further than the Vanity Event.  They’ve got a bunch of gifts peppered around at different stalls, and they’re all free.  You don’t even need to join a group here, just click on the boxes and bags, and they’re yours.  I got this gorgeous gown over at the TOG display.  It comes in both black and white versions, and also has a pair of shoes included (not pictured).  Who doesn’t need a good gown?

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way

Ramblin’ On

I couldn’t help but quote a bit of Led Zeppelin at you.  When Autumn comes around, that song always has me feeling all the feels!  Anyway, there’s maaaaassive news from Mangula today, and that is that they’ve got 20 free gift boxes lying around the store for everyone to pick up!  No group join required, just click on the boxes scattered around the shop.  You’ll also find that each box doesn’t just contain one gift, they each contain multiple, and that’s hella generous!  I fell in love with the contents of box #6, which is this awesome corseted dress.  I don’t know how long this will be going on for, as it is listed as “limited time only” so get your patoot over there!

Update:  Looks like you have to hit the subscrib-o-matic in order to pick up the gifts!  It’s located over the front desk and is free to join!

Candy Girl

Candy Girl

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! For this post I have a few time-sensitive goodies from Junk Food and Demicorn, alongside a group gift at COCO. With time in mind I’m going to keep my banter to a minimum. Short and sweet, like candy! I hope you love these finds as much as I do.

COCO

COCO has a new group gift top out with a free join to their in-world group. I love the look of the top, and the bright sunny yellow color.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Original, Petite) MeshBody Legacy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Junk Food 

Junk Food is participating in this week’s So Kawaii Sunday. Their 65 linden offer is this pack of delicious looking gummi bears. The bears have a bento hold pose, and bento wearable that attaches with your tongue out just like in my photo. Also, they have been updated to fit Genus heads.

Demicorn

My lipstick and eye makeup are Secret Sale items at Demicorn. Each applier set is just 50 linden for Sunday only. The lipstick works with Catwa HD lips, and Genus. The eye makeup is a Catwa applier only, however there are Genus sets for sale as well.

Café Culture

Café Culture

I have so missed going for coffee in RL.  It’s fairly safe in my part of the world to do so right now, but I am still eschewing the outside world pretty fervently.  I’m also eschewing coffee, and always have to be fair… I’m more the type of person who drinks things that are 98% sugar and 2% hot chocolate.  Or some combination thereof… I made my way over to The Burrow Coffee Co. so I could soak in some of the café atmosphere!

Moons and Stars

Moonstar is celebrating their 12th anniversary!  Congratulations!  In celebration, they’ve set up a hunt with lots of fun goodies that are completely free!  I picked up the “Café Cats” dress, because a.) it’s cute and b.) it has cats all over it and I can never say no to that!  To get this dress, and a bunch of other cute outfits, just search the store for the little blue moons and stars – they’re free, and there are 12 outfits to search for!  Happy Anniversary, Moonstar!

Purely Tentacular

Purely Tentacular

What’s the weirdest ice cream flavour you’ve ever had?  There are so many insane concoctions these days that I never know if people are joking or whether they are creating genuinely delicious foods.  You may have heard of onion flavoured ice cream (it’s a real thing), but the tendency to the strange doesn’t lie only at the feet of the ice cream world.  Don’t even get me started on molecular gastronomy.  Is that still a thing?

The Shade, The Shade of it all!

The Shady Seasonal Hunt takes off today, and there are several brands participating!  When you join the free group, you’ll be able to access the different gifts (all priced at 20L) in each store on the sim.  I headed to Mug, where I grabbed this fun skirt (it would match very well with the group gift I posted yesterday).  It comes with an HUD to change the skirt colour to four different neon colours, as well as options to change the fishnet or remove it.  As with many Mug clothing items, you also have different body types taken into account, so this skirt could be considered a unisex item.  I also grabbed my be-tentacled ice cream from Dots for just 20L.  There are six different flavours, and three different tentacle colours!  Just search for the beach balls when you’re in each store, and you’re sure to find something fun!

A Bit Snobby

A Bit Snobby

I am feeling a bit like a snobby shopper today.  It’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, but sometimes playing a role can be lots of fun.  I detest when people are mean or entitled, but this outfit is letting me explore the look without any of the drama!

Parisienne

My snobby yet chic look today is courtesy of Masoom.  You can get this very cute dress over at Cosmopolitan by joining the free group.  I particularly enjoy the little tied cravat bow around the neck.  It gives me all sorts of Paris in the 60’s vibes, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

Don’t wait too long, this round of Cosmopolitan ends on the 11th!

I can’t keep the snobby charade up for long, but I do love a good lewk!

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”

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Beach season has perched itself firmly in my spirit.  I live not far from a beach in RL, but it’s not the kind of beach that we all dream of – soft sand, crashing waves, and warm waters.  It’s more of a thin ribbon of sand leading you to icy cold depths.  I’m not complaining one bit – it’s a beautiful lake – but I always wished for something traditionally beachy.  I get my traditional beach-bound moments in SL, I guess!

Choices

Seniha have been spoiling group members recently!  Pru showed you a recent group gift HERE which is still available, and now they’re getting us ready for the beach with their newest group gift!  The Ariana bikini comes with lots and lots of texture options in the HUD, which allows you to switch the top and bottom separately for your own look.  There are nautical stripes, tropical flowers, and even solids.  Your mixing and matching will never get tiring!  To get this lovely gift, just join the Seniha group for free, and click on the vendor near the entrance.
