Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Music on – World off

Music on - World off

Good Afternoon, FabFree. We seem to be rushing to the end of April rather quickly now. Hunts are wrapping up, events closing. But amid all the hustle, we have a brand new Group gift from Redangel for the FabFree Group. And even better, this gift is for the men of FabFree.

This is the “Music” tee from Redangel. But it is only one of five musically inclined shirts in the Fatpack you will pick up for free with your FabFree Group tag. I have been known to pick up an instrument or two and spend a cold rainy day just fretting or getting a song onto paper.  And this is perfect gear for a day like that.

School Day

School Day

Hey hey, FabFree! Ya know Elfs and unicorns go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like cheese and crackers. Like chocolate and milk…. Like…. Okay, I might be hungry…   But let’s talk unicorns. I do love the magical critters and when I found a Hunt dedicated to them, I knew I was gonna jump on it!  Tons of cute stuff on this Hunt and it’s “family friendly” so those of you with SL wee ones are going to want to check it out too.

This entire outfit, from head to toe, is the 1L prize from a new-to-me designer – The Dismal Peacock. Yes, the name made me chuckle, too.  You get the ‘Unicorn School” tee shirt, the jeans and the cute pink and white sneakers all as one prize. Plenty of fit options and a solid build means this will be a good addition to your closet!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And while you’re spending that 1L for a new casual outfit, save one Linden for a gorgeous new hair style! This is ‘Instant Crush’ from Exile and you will find it for 1L on the Market Place. That one little Linden will get you all the colors and two versions of the hair. One that is regular mesh and one that is ‘Bento’. Which means it moves with a little sway when you move. Pretty cool!

Something about Spring

Something about Spring

Hey there, FabFree. Are you into the Spring season yet? I know some of our readers are actually going into Autumn so all of our Spring weather ramblings must sound sorta out of place. But… ya gotta grow where you’re planted and right now that means Spring in all it’s glory.

The Grid is celebrating Spring with a ton of Spring themed Hunts. Today’s hunt included a very nice men’s shirt and jeans so I grabbed my Gabriel and off we went. The Hop Along Hunt was a fun quick Hunt over at MystRie and it netted us both these snazzy Spring outfits.

My maxi dress, “Softly Spring’ is a lovely wash of watercolors with pale pinks and a floral pattern. It looks like something I’d have in my real life closet! Beautifully made, it’s the perfect addition to my SL closet. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Gabriel’s knit sweater over a dark gray collared shirt is just different enough to be eye catching. And I love the pale lavender color. Who says guys can’t wear pastel? The prize includes a pair of jeans as well (Not Shown)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geanni
  • SLink Male

It’s almost Easter and many of the hunts are reflecting the Easter and Spring theme.  This adorable dress is from Starshine Designs for the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes Hunt.  As you can see this adorable little blue butterfly landed on my nose while I was doing my photos and made me go all cross eyed in my pic!  A couple of days late for April Fools but there you have it!  This cute dress comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

The hunt is a 1L hunt with 25L exclusive items.  This dress is a 25L exclusive so you don’t wanna miss it.  The hunt goes from today, April 3 to April 30.  I expect soon we will all be sleeping very well from the hunting exhaustion and dreaming of all sorts of eggs with goodies in them!

Modern Spring Goddess

It’s time to bask in the magic of Springtime delights, my dear readers!  That means find a cute dress, hop on the bicycle, get something tasty and hang out in a park.  I can’t possibly think of what I’d rather be doing in this lovely weather that happens to have appeared in my part of the world, so it’s time to take advantage.

Yummy and Plummy

I headed over to Shanti for this sweet dress.  It’s all sorts of Spring magic to me – the boho feel, the purple tones… love it!  To get yours, just join the Shanti group for 50L and click on the gift box.  You’ll find a few other sweet gifts there too, so don’t miss out on them!

Clutter my Life

You may or may not have heard, but there’s a super fun Easter egg hunt going on at the Cies Island sim.  Most of the stores are participating, and my first stop was Tentacio.  I have always adored their penchant for fun and sweet clutter.  My inventory is pretty full of their awesome creations!  You can get all sorts of goodies there by clicking on the pastel eggs hiding around the store.  I got the shoes, drink, bicycle and clutter you see on the ground there, all for free!  There are piles of other free gifts in the boxes too, so you’re sure to find something you love.

The Cies Island egg hunt is running until April 11th!

What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

Hello again, FabFree. As I am sure you may have seen, we have had several new designers join our growing ranks of Fabulous Designers for the FabFree Group. It’s always exciting to welcome new talent and when one such new designers has gifts for the men… it’s doubly exciting.

Which brings us to Dreams. While Dreams is not exclusively male clothing it does a very nice selection of well made items. Simply head upstairs to the men’s department and browse.  Their Group is free to join as well and there are group gifts for both men and women.  The “Uriel” shirt I’m sporting today is the gift for the FabFree Group so it’s yours for the asking once you join up. Which is, of course… free.  Be aware, the vender will ask for 1L and immediately refund it. Uriel comes with a HUD for six colors and while the store logo is embroidered on the chest… it’s subtle and not distracting.  I highly recommend taking a moment to explore this newest FabFree designer.

Catch my heart

Catch my heart

Hey FabFree, happy Saturday to you! When I saw this pretty little jar full of sparkly hearts, all I could think about was lightning bugs and how we used to catch them as kids. I loved chasing after them in the fields of tall grass behind our house. I’d always let them go at the end of the night because I’m a soft heart like that.

I found my jar full of hearts over at Satus Inc and got it for free! The jar of Hearts is just one of a ton of gifts set out for us TeleportHUB Members. There is a fee of 10L to join but then you are set to grab so so many gifts all across the Grid.

I didn’t originally go to Satus Inc for the jar. I went over to pick up this cute pink spring dress. Because it’s the completely free FabFree Group Gift from Satus Inc.  The “Sara wrap around mini dress” is just the thing for these warming temps and spring time days. Just slap that board and join the Fab Free Group if you haven’t already and check out the loooong list of gifts here on the Blog.

Wearin’ O The Green

Wearin' O The Green

‘Afternoon, FabFree. I hope you are all getting around and picking up the plentiful pries from the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt. Today is the last day to do so! But it’s worth the rush! I had to pack a couple of designers into my post today because I don’t want to miss a thing.

First up is the complete outfit from Nuts Inc. The “Jim set” comes in two prize boxes, one with the sweater and one with the jeans and sneakers, each for just 3L. The delightful Ms. Lea Supermarine did tell me that she was generously going to leave the prizes out for a day or two longer to make sure everyone had a chance to pick them up. Thanks, Lea! And you don’t want to miss this set. Just the jeans are a solid build that I can see wearing quite a bit of year round. And the sneakers go with several things in my casual closet.

Next are the two short sleeved tees from Redangel. This was a new to me designer and I’m rather pleased to have “discovered” them. Take a turn around the shop when you go pick up these tees. I particularly like the ‘sanitized’ one.

Lastly, is my new wall decor from Earthworkx. The “Lucky Tiles” are meant for St. Pat’s day but I like them enough to keep them up year round. Juli and I play a lot of Scrabble and I usually win. Elves can’t spell… 😉

Don’t forget… today is your last day to grab these prizes and get lucky!
