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!

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Story of My Life


Awkward

Hey There Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. I feel like the sign board Pru is holding says what could be the title to Pru’s autobiography. lol Really, this sign board by Le Poppycock with the cheeky saying is one of many free gifts at The Liaison Collaborative. The current round of TLC is an anniversary round so there are several gifts either at the vendor booths or in the center of the event on little carts. In addition to this gift by Le Poppycock, Pru is wearing the free TLC gift by Canimal. Both gifts require the free-to-join TLC group tag.

The Sign Board – This free gift at TLC by Le Poppycock comes with the pose needed to hold this fun prop. The board itself has several sayings, some a bit cheeky like this one, and some not. It’s great for photos, and I would even use it as décor.

The Romper – Also a free gift at TLC, this romper by Canimal is a Maitreya fit (I believe). It comes on it’s own, unboxed. To get your copy of this gift and all the others, be sure to join the Liaison Collaborative group and wear the tag before clicking the gift boxes.

Here are the details:

The Oracle


The Oracle

Hello Fab Free! I’m so glad you’re here. This look I came up with for Pru reminded me of an Oracle like the ones in stories about ancient Rome. Maybe it’s the fiery eyes, or the detailed pendant. Both items are free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. I used several gifts from the Summoning Spring Fair to create this unique look. I hope you enjoy them.

The Hair – As I mentioned there are lots of free gifts to be had at the Summoning Spring Fair. CHARME happens to have 2 gifts. This swing-bob style hair is their free gift, and if you pick up both of the CHARME gifts you’ll get the hairstyle with 4 total color change huds. This free hairstyle also has a unique feature that lets your color/texture the top strands of the hair separately from the rest to give the style a lot of dimension and tons of color combinations.

The Tattoo – This mandala-like forehead tattoo is the Summoning Spring Fair gift from Fallen Gods. It comes in classic system layers along with an Omega applier. That means this freebie is suitable for mesh (Omega compatible) avatars and classic non mesh avatars. Not to mention with all the color choices, you could wear it with anything!

The Eyes – I think these intense eyes by Cubic Cherry might be my favorite of the free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. They come in several vibrant colors. This git set includes a pair of mesh eyes, a matching alpha layer, an optional shadow add-on for extra detail, a texture change hud, and an Omega applier hud for Omega compatible eyes.

The Necklace – Finally, this beautiful necklace is by On a Lark, and is also a free gift at the Summoning Spring Fair. I would consider this item to be unisex. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from several preset options for the shiny stone, and 3 metal choices for the chain and setting.

Here are the details!

Hair – C H A R M E – Valentine – Monotones – Free Gift @Summoning Spring Fair
Horns –  [[Black Star]] Glamour Horns gold
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Ears – Mandala – (UNISEX)_[MANDALA]Pierced_ELF_EARS_VER1

Livin’ Our Best Life


Best Life

Hello There! Welcome back to the blog! Is it too early for the beach? Maybe. I suppose it depends on where you are in the world. Here in Second Life we get to be beachy anytime. This cute little pup and I are out living our best lives right here in SL where the sun always shines. Speaking of this adorable doggie, she’s part of a free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. Additionally, Pru’s outfit is a freebie by Sn@tch, also available at The Free Dove. Keep reading for all the info.

Pose and Props – I think French bulldogs are my favorite of the bulldog breeds, and this little pup with her red bow and sunglasses is the cutest of the cute. She is part of the free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. The gift also includes the cell phone with the matching bulldog case, and a hairbow for you to wear (not shown), and of course the pose. To get your copy of this free gift you’ll need to venture over to The Free Dove and join their free-to-join group. Then while wearing your group tag you can click the gift vendor for this item and it will be delivered to you.

Applier Outfit – While at The Free Dove snagging some freebies, I also picked up this free outfit by Sn@tch. The tied shirt and cropped jeans come in classic system layers and Omega appliers. There are 12 color choices for the top, and one for the pants. You’ll need The Free Dove group tag for this gift also. The Free Dove group is always free to join.

Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’ve been fishing! Of course I mean 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Their current “Fish 4 This” outfit was just too cute to pass up. Not to mention the fact that you can score a full head to toe look with different color choices for several of the pieces. Also, there are options that make this look suitable for Classic avatars. The following blurb is a quick “how-to” for those new to 7Seas Fishing. I’ve posted it before, but figured I’d post it again just incase someone needed the information. If you’ve already figured the fishing thing out, just skip that part.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

“That Magical Night” Outfit 

Like most of the Fish4This outfits at Sn@tch, this one includes everything you see in the photo, just about. These items are all free, as long as you have your 7Seas Fishing Rod. There are 21 total pieces, including the top with bra in an Omega applier, and system layers, 6 mesh skirts, the black tights in Omega appliers, mesh boots (alpha layer and shoe base fished separately), jewelry, and the hairstyle shown in 3 colors. Also, each of the mesh skirts come with the following size options: Standard Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Fine, Curvy), and EBody.

Here are the details!

Love and a Cat


Love and a Cat

Hellooo Fab Free! I missed you! I had a busy weekend and just a busy February in general, but it has been good and productive so I can’t complain. As February begins to come to an end, so do most of the February hunts. One such hunt is the Cupid’s Crush Hunt. This adorable little tank top by Ghee is one of the Cupid’s Crush Hunt prizes. I also couldn’t resist the chance to share with you the 10 linden offer at the Truth or Dare Affair by EscalateD. Keep reading for all the info about these two fabulous finds.

The Hair – Spring is on the way and I love this shaggy short hairstyle for warmer months. This hairstyle is the 10 linden item by EscalateD at the Truth or Dare Affair event. It comes with 3 specialty mini huds to change the texture/hair color. The Truth or Dare Affair ends February 28th, so don’t wait.

The Shirt – The Cupid’s Crush Hunt also ends in just a few days on February 28th. It is a 2 linden hunt, so all the prizes are just 2 linden. This cute tank top is the CCH prize by Ghee. It reads “All you need is Love and a Cat” and I couldn’t agree more with that statement. haha This 2 linden hunt prize comes in several mesh sizes and has an alpha layer included making it wearable for classic avatars.

OMG I’m Cureless!


Oh My Gah

Hey hey hello Fab Free’rs! I can’t believe this week is already nearing to an end. I seem to be always in some disbelief when it comes to the passing of time however, so it’s probably just me! lol Speaking of passing time, one of my favorite ways to do so is (you guessed it) hunting for fabulous freebies! For this post I picked up the recent group gift set of eyes at Cureless, and an adorable free manicure by Tamagosenbei.

The eyes – Once again Cureless has you covered if you’re in need of some gorgeous eyes with an otherworldly appeal. The Lethe eye set is a recent group gift at Cureless. In this gift you’ll get a set of mesh eyes, and an applier. The applier works with the mesh eyes, as well as Catwa eyes or Omega compatible eyes. There are several color options to choose from, and with the included mesh eyes or Catwa eyes you can change the color of each eye separately. To get your copy you’ll need the Cureless group tag. The group has a one time join fee of 99 linen, however there are several group gifts currently available.

The manicure – This cute heart shaped manicure is by Tomagosenbei. They are free with no group tag needed. You’ll find them for sale in the doorway of the Tamagosenbei store that just so happens to be in the same shopping area as Cureless. Just pay the box zero linden and your nails will be sent to you. This pretty little freebie is fit for Maitreya hands only.
