Houseboats Galore

Free houseboats!

Free Houseboats!

You know what’s cooler than a free house? A free house that can stay on water. I love houseboats and I just found a whole load of free ones at The Workshop, which are all free compliments of the Stay at Home Club.

In-World Boats

The first stop you will want to go to get in on this offer is The Workshop‘s in-world store. On the wall with the Stay at Home Club sign they have three houseboats out for free: The Seabass, The Mullet (seen in the photo above), and the Blue Pearl Houseboat.

Marketplace Houseboats!

You can also grab a few houseboats by this creator for free on their marketplace store. You can get the Trout boat here, the Blue Pearl here and the Mullet boat here, which is the one I am also showcasing in my photograph.

In total, there are four houseboats in total to get for free from The Workshop between their in-world store and their marketplace.

Another Gift Head from Akeruka!

AK free Gift Head Stay at Home Gift

I have another full bento head gift to share with you, Fab Free. This is the new Advanced head from Akeruka and it is a limited-time gift. I will also be showing you how to get the free stay at home necklace gift I am currently wearing, and some poses available as a gift for members of the Lybra VIP group!

Stay at Home Gift Head

Akeruka is known for giving out free mesh heads and their new 1L gift is gorgeous. It is an “Advanced” BOM head. Simply join the Akeruka group for 150 Linden to get this gift. The head then will cost you 1 L. The total cost: 151 L for a bento mesh head that normally costs 5, 000 L. What a steal! This new model of the Advanced Akeruka Head has new features such as full BOM, and in includes detailed options of adding pores, oily skin, or wrinkles to your skin. It also has a “wet” feature to make it look like you have water droplets on your face, to make it look as if you are in the rain or just came out of the shower. These are just some of the cool advanced options with their new head! This offer is only available for a limited time, so go grab it while you still can.

Hopeful

I know it is a sad time in our world right now, but let’s try to be hopeful and pray for a better future during these difficult times.  This beautiful necklace by Secrets says “Hope” on it and that’s a great message for them to send out right now. This is a free Stay at Home Club gift.

300 Lybra Poses

If you happen to be a Lybra VIP, you can get a new set of 300 poses as a group gift. I used one of the poses in the pack to create this shot. This is a very generous gift. The Lybra VIP group costs 500 L to join.

Thank you for reading, Fab Free!

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Someday….

Someday

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is off to a fantastic start.  Ripley and I paid a visit to one of our favorite shops today and picked up this lovely belted frock in a vibrant color (which happens to be my go-to shade to wear).  Best of all, it was completely free!

A Quiet Country Walk With My Pal

With its long skirt and sleeves, and high neckline, the Frill Sleeve Pleated Dress from S@bbia had me thinking of leisurely walks enjoying the crisp autumn air.  Since it has been over 110 degrees around my neck of the woods lately, I really, really am longing for the respite of fall!  Someday soon, it will come, right?  I just love the diamond patterned, lace texture on the fabric of this sweet dress and the way the belt is loosely knotted around my waistline.  My first thought for how to style it was to make my outfit a little bit country with cowgirl boots and a hat, but I spotted these cute Asymmetric Sandals in S@bbia, and decided to opt for slightly dressier instead.  Either way you go, this frock creates a charming look.  The folder includes just one size as well as an alpha layer for classic avatars, but I think it will work well with various mesh body types.  To add this versatile dress to your inventory, you need to be a member of the S@bbia group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up a copy without spending a single Linden dollar!  While you are at the store, you can try your luck on the Guess and Win board and check to see if your letter appears on one of the Lucky Boards.  If you bring along your own good luck charm, you just might walk away with more than one addition to your wardrobe.  I know I did 🙂

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Dress (one size)
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Only Us

Fenceline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a darling outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.  With a floral crop top and sleek shorts, this outfit will have you ready for a weekend adventure, without putting even so much as a tiny dent in your budget.

Pretty Floral Print

Lalie from WellMade has lots of fine details such as the semi transparent generous cuffs, the ruffled edge on the hem and coordinating ties dangling down on the sides of the shorts.  While I opted for a grayish botanical print and black shorts, with the enclosed HUD, you have three other options for the top and bottom that you can switch up and combine to your heart’s content.  Since each piece is worn separately, you can mix and match with other items already in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, since the WellMade group has no join fee, you can add this summery number to your inventory completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
