Cute N’ Nerdy

Cute N' Nerdy

Bibliophile –
noun
A person who collects or has a great love of books.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I was one of those kids that spent way too much time afraid of being called a nerd. I’d hide my love of books, fantasy, and anything that might label me as geeky, nerdy, or dorky. The funny thing is, all that hiding never gained me any popularity either. Now that I’ve fully embraced my nerdiness it’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself! Alongside my nerdy adoration of books I love fashion and can get especially geeky about a great bargain.

TRS Designs

For this look I picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift dress at TRS Designs. I have to say this dress is even cuter on than it is in photos. I really wish I’d picked this one up sooner. It has the loose fit of a t-shirt dress, with the added details of leather-like straps that come together in a Y shape in the back. I’m also loving the wine red and slate grey tie-dye. To get yours simply head over to TRS Designs and purchase the dress for zero linden from the Stay at Home Club vendor.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Frey, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Standard Mesh + Alpha (xxs – L)

DAPPA

I also don’t think it’s a secret that I love tattoos. DAPPA has been a recent favorite tattoo shop of mine. This heavily detailed upper body tattoo is the newest group gift at DAPPA and I’m geeking out about how great it looks. It’s a unisex tattoo with several appliers and BOM layers each with the choice of a fresh or faded look. The DAPPA group is free to join, and there are several male/female/unisex free group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Signature, BOM Layers

DAPPA - Akuma Tattoo. FREE GIFT!

BND

Last, but not at all least, no cute nerd girl look would be complete without glasses. I love these round specs by BND. They are just 5 linden on the Marketplace. With the glasses you get a texture change hud with options for the frames and lenses. There’s also a backup pair of glasses just in case you need them. Also, they can be manually resized which I really like.

I hope you enjoy these freebies and cheapies, happy shopping Fab Free, and always let your true self shine!

The Bright Side of the Screen

The Bright Side of the Screen

A lot of us are still all confined to quarters, but staying home doesn’t have to be the punishment so many see it as.  I say, stick on a cool outfit, and make the most of your “me” time.  We always complain that we don’t have enough of it, so though it’s probably not the way we want it to happen…may as well look on the bright side, right?

The Bright Side

One of my fave brands, Secret Oktober are taking part in the Midsummer Enchantment Hunt.  This awesome starry tank (sized for Maitreya bodies) is their hunt gift and it will only set you back 5L.   I am a sucker for anything with stars on it, so this one was right up my alley.  Your hunt item is a masquerade mask that you’ll have to search high and low for on the sim.  You’ve got until July 26th to find all the goodness!

Phone Obsessed

The phone I’m holding is a free gift from OMY  that  you can pick up at La Vie en Pose.  I mentioned the other day that by joining their free group, you’ll gain access to a massive pile of gifts that you’re sure to have lots of fun with.  The phone is super awesome because it’s actually animated!  Your thumb will move up and down the screen as it scrolls through what looks like Flickr posts.  It’s totally like art imitating life…or uh…SL imitating RL?  Either way… I had a good chuckle!  Go pick it up!  It’s free!

One with Nature

Coming soon to Fab Free

Now is the perfect time of year to escape to your local river sanctuary and take a breath. I love walking off and finding these small beauties of nature; if only there were more of them where I live! Thankfully I stumbled upon Puddlechurch the other day, a gorgeous sim that allowed me to enjoy nature remotely.

Get Lucky at zk store

zk store has a big re-opening on at the moment, and as part of the celebrations they have put up nineteen new lucky boards and a free group join. All of the letter prizes are full fatpacks or megapacks- included are outfits, shoes, and more with style huds and colour huds. Some of the prizes are fitted for Matireya only, and others fit a range of bodies, such as the Anais dress and boots set I am wearing. To get all these amazing outfits, you will need to join the zk store VIP group, which is currently free to join, and wait for your letter to pop up! Make sure you also grab all the free group gifts while you are there.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Slink Hourglass

New Hair at Free Dove

Free Dove has lots of new free goodies, including a relatively new hair addition by EscalateD. As you probably already know, I am a big fan of this hair company. The hair is called Lovey and it is exclusive to Free Dove. Included in the hair is a style hud which allows you to add and remove the braid, add and remove bangs and hair strands, add pearls of different colours to the braid and change the colour of the headband. The hair also includes two universal huds: one for natural colours and one for unnatural colours. Lovey is a gorgeous hair and it will be a wonderful addition to your inventory!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

I took a bus today to the middle of nowhere to do some soul searching.  It was a long ride, and all I brought with me was my mirror, because even when it’s 100 degrees in the shade, you gotta make sure you look fabulous darlings!

Step it Up

This awesome jumpsuit is courtesy of Tachinni!  They recently reloaded their lucky boards with new goodies!  To gain access to the boards, just join the group for 15L and then wait for your letter to come up!

Losing My Zed

LOSING MY ZED- Prudence Rexroth

Down the hatch in one quick swallow! Hi Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m sure you’re curious as to why I am about to swallow this cute pink letter z. It’s all because of Kiddo Oh, the owner/creator of Dead Doll formerly Dead Dollz. You may have heard that in June the iconic brand Dead Dollz was rebranded and became Dead Doll. In celebration there is a super cute freebie that is intended to be worn for the Dead Doll photo contest.

What’s the contest? It is intended to be a photo depiction of how “Dead Dollz” might have lost their “z” and became Dead Doll. There are some really incredible prizes for this contest and it is free to enter. First prize is 10,000 linden, and 5,000 in store credit to spend at Dead Doll! There is no group requirement to pick up the free contest merchandise at the Dead Doll store. You’ll find it sitting on the counter near the contest information sign. The deadline is July 15th, so hurry if you want to enter, and don’t forget to check the notecard included in the package for all contest rules and information.

The free Dead Doll photo contest merchandise package comes with a knotted logo tee, a coffee to go with bento hold pose (not pictured), and a re-sizeable letter z. Good Luck, and enjoy the freebies!

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Sunday Necessities

Sunday Necessities

Happy Sunday Funday Fab Free!  I am all of a flutter thinking about all the cool stuff I could get up to today.  On the top of that list, is of course ice cream…because….well…ice cream.  Do I need any further explanation?

There’s a new group gift over at COCO!  You’ll also notice that they’ve got a brand new build to explore.  You’ll find loads of free group gifts at COCO, as well as free gifts you can grab with no group join required.  This cute lacy top (which is a bit salacious, I’ll admit) is free when you join their free group.  You can get a whole free wardrobe at COCO!  Nice!

Je Vois la Vie en Pose

The latest round of La Vie en Pose is in full effect, and every designer has a free gift at their stall for members of their free-to-join group.  I picked up this cute ice cream by Lyrium there, and you can grab it too, as well as loads of other free goodies!

Under the Willows

Under the Willows

I guess I’m feeling my wild elf side tonight. I don’t want to be around people… I just want to find a quiet stream and talk to the willow trees. Listen to the water and the wind. Maybe it’s just that time of summer.

Midsummer

Midsummer means the Midsummer Enchantment event and Hunt is going full swing. And if you haven’t checked this one out yet don’t delay and miss it. The SIM is beautifully decorated with witchy fantasy fare and there are tons of booths to pick from. The Hunt isn’t to be missed either. Just search out the purple feathered masks hidden all over for some lovely prizes like this one from Paper Moon. This is the Gelsey Halter Daffodil and it can be yours for some hunting and 5L. Not a bad price for such a cute little Boho top. It comes in two versions a “fresh” one which I’m wearing and a softly faded version. Both are beautiful.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Dragon
  • eBody
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Werewolf
