All Things Considered
Hi There Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to be able to share some fabulous finds with you. You might be thinking, what an odd combination, a silk robe with bandanna hair. You might be right, it is perhaps a little odd. However, it’s exactly something Pru would do. So think of this as a friendly reminder to just be yourself.

Speaking of the bandanna hair, this style is a current group gift at Fabia. There are actually several group gifts available at Fabia, but this long hairstyle caught my eye the most. It comes with a style hud that lets you choose how the hair does or does not lay over your shoulders. It also is a fatpack with all the color choices. The Fabia group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

So yes, Pru is wearing a lovely satin-like lace trimmed robe with her skull bandanna, what?! I do like this robe a lot, it’s parted but still covers you up a little. It is a free group-only lucky letter board prize at Insomnia Store. The Insomnia Store group is free to join, and there are multiple lucky letter boards. Also, the letters change fast, so hopefully you won’t have to wait terribly long for your letter/number to appear. This pretty robe comes in the silver version shown and a matching gold version.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique

Here are the details, enjoy!

Amber is the color of your energy

Amber is the color of your energy

Hey FabFree. I’m just hanging out, enjoying the view. Oh and wearing new, pretty, free things of course!

Short Hair

My hair is the latest free group gift from Fabia. The gift is a fatpack of hair that comes with a really great hairstyle HUD as well! You can choose to have the hair pushed behind one ear, the other ear, or neither ear. Options for days! Fabia is 100L to join if you’re not already in the group and totes worth it! There are some previous group gifts still out in the store as well. I just activated my group tag and clicked the vendor picture in the store and free hair was all miiiiiiine.

Unzipped Shorts

I’m not typically a fan of the half opened shorts look – “Zip up your pants! We’re trying to live in a society here! And get off my lawn!” But in this case I’ll make an exception because these are super cute and really well done. Yes, that’s all that it takes for me to change my mind. They are a free group gift from Un!q for the ShopaholicSL group, which is free to join. The shorts come sized for:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

While you’re there picking up the shorts be sure to check out the gifts for other groups as well, including the Un!q store group.

And that’s all I have to show you today. Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Here For The Party

I'm here for the party

Hi! I’m Allison, one of the two new Fab Free bloggers, and I’m so excited to be here! I’ve been reading this blog for what seems like my whole slife, so it’s weird being on the other side of things. I’m still like, “omg I need to pick up that cute top Aline is wearing” and “ohhh I want that bikini” when I should be bringing some content. So today I’m giving it a go myself and the things I’m wearing? Pretty fantastic!

Little Green Dress

My dress is the new group gift from Hilly Haalan and the group is free to join. I love the ruffles along the top and the texture has a little bit of sheen to it. It also comes with a HUD that will let you change it to just about any color that your heart desires.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Tres Chic Hair

Many of the fantastic gifts at Tres Chic have been mentioned here already and it’s not too hard to TP in anymore, so there’s no reason not to go grab them for yourself! Just head on over to Tres Chic and join the free group to pick up all of the gifts. This hair is the gift from FABIA there. It’s a low, messy bun with great long bangs. I love a versatile hairstyle that can be dressed up or down!

Gacha to chase away the Monday Blues

The mix of being in an experimental mood and seeing all the great Vintage Gacha Fair posts from Astrid and Love and Carson had me wondering if it was possible to brew up a look using mostly under 75L gacha prizes. Since the fair is going to be running until the 19th of this month, I figured that there would be enough time to go and take a poke around. If things didn’t go according to plan at least I would have had some amusement on a (yucky) Monday. As it turns out, though, my experiment yielded up some pretty positive results. Here are the details;

Casual historical dressing

I’ve been in some pretty fancy dresses this week and it was rather refreshing to step into a more casual (in comparison) period piece. Cut in the regency style, the Lizzy dress has pretty puffed sleeves, a flattering neckline, and an empire waist to enhance your silhouette. I personally liked the detailing on the hem of the skirt and it was nice to step out in a pretty gown without the frills of swishing silk skirts and lace. Lizzy is available at the Faida booth at the Vintage Gacha Fair for 50L per pull and you can choose from five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) before paying the gacha machine. The corresponding alpha layer for the Lizzy outfit is available for free at the booth so don’t forget to grab that too if you do try your luck at the machine. Commons range from a trio of pretty pastel shades; blue, lavender, and cream (shown) while I do believe that rares are black, white, and red.  Just a side note, however, there was no demo (that I could spot) at the booth and I had to do a bit of guesswork and go by the standard size that I always wore.

Little lamb

One thing on my SL New Year’s resolution list was to stop buying little animals and big ones too. This was promptly broken as soon as I walked by the Jinx booth and spotted their MacSheepy gacha. They’re so adorable aren’t they? Will you look at those big eyes…awww. -ahem- Before I descend into baby talk, these cute little sheep are available for 65L per pull. I’m showing the holdy version of Giro in the picture above but there are twelve commons (six huggies and six holdies ) to be won as well as three rares and one ultra rare companion MacRamstein. All version of the MacSheepy blink their pretty big eyes and companion MacSheepy will walk around with your avatar. Jinx has another booth at the Vintage Gacha Fair as well with adorable baby goats.

Accessories

No trip to the Vintage Gacha fair is complete without snagging those awesome free gifts that merchants have out at their booths from clothing to home and garden items to accessories, I found something in the many, many gift boxes to compliment today’s outfit. The Escapade necklace in gold comes from the Fallen Gods Inc booth and is a simple yet pretty trinket to flatter any outfit historical or modern. While the necklace doesn’t come with a resize script, you’ll still be able to stretch, rotate and move it around using the edit option. Permissions are also set to copy/mod so be sure to make backups. If you poke around the other booths belonging to Fallen Gods Inc you’ll find the silver version of the Escapade necklace as another free prize.

The Vintage Gacha Fair is running until the 19th of this month so hop on over to get your free gifts and see what kind of cool stuff you’ll be able to play for.

Other gacha

Looks like the gacha bug has bitten me rather viciously as I can’t seem to stop play them even after I’ve left the fair. I picked up the Galadriel hairstyle from Fabia Hair’s instore gacha for 50L per pull (shown here in pack number 3). This flowing and romantic hairstyle is very reminiscent of the elf that shares its name. I especially like how wavey the mesh looks and was pretty pleased to discover that you’ll also be receiving the tiara accessory as well to go along with your new hair. Here’s a rundown of what’s in the prize package:

  • Two versions of the Galadriel hairstyle; one for larger chests
  • Four versions of the tiara with rigged and resize versions and shine/no shine versions
  • Color hud with six different shades to choose from for common sets (rare sets have three times that)
  • RGB hud to change up the accessory colors

A very happy birthday

If you’ve seen Pru’s Post you’d have seen that it’s 7 Deadly s{K}ins’s fourth birthday today and the store is celebrating with not only a free join exercise but a birthday market placed at the front of their store and extra mini-manias. At the market, you’ll find 4L skin boxes for both male and female and before you think they’re only for classic skins there are boxes of face appliers for the different mesh heads thrown into the mix as well. Also available are 1L gacha and an example of this is the Daisey skin shown above. Though she only comes in one tone (taupe) there are different versions of the makeups (version 5 shown) to be won from this gacha and with such a sweet face I couldn’t resist playing over and over. Common prizes come with only classic skin while rare prize packages include body appliers. It’s highly recommended that you take advantage of this free join exercise as there’s a 400L gift card up for grabs for group members and stay in the group as members get access to regular gifts as well as the midnight mania, mini mania’s and lucky chairs. The free group exercise and birthday market are open for a very limited time so don’t delay!

And that’s a wrap. I gotta get the new sheep and goat settled in with all the other animals. My place is turning into a zoo… -rubs temples- Have fun out there guys and good luck on the gachas!

Took a wrong turn

Took a wrong turn

Lost again

Hmm…this club has got a pretty solid farmyard concept going on though those patrons over there are definitely taking the funky chicken way too seriously. Oh, who am I kidding? I should have just asked for directions to the latest social hotspot instead of teleporting about willy nilly. Talk about being all dressed up with nowhere to go. -sighs- Enough with feeling sorry for myself, even if it’s too late to make a splash at some glitzy club with my outfit, I can still talk to you Fab Readers about it so let’s get on with the details! I’ll work from the top down as we have a lot to get through!

More hair accessories

No hair addict worth her salt is going to let a sale slip her by and when I saw that Fabia Hair was having a weekend Spring Sale I quickly er…sprung into action. While I was at the store oohing and ahhing over the fabulous hairstyles I spotted a little sign for this cute hairband displayed along with their group gifts and upon closer inspection saw that it was a donation item set out for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding it to my accessory collection. It’s sweet red and white color scheme and well-made hearts simply screamed at me to get a copy for my own. When I unboxed it, I discovered that you’ll also get a lightbox version of the headband with blinking lights in the hearts. Awesome! The headbands cost only 10L so do consider picking them up if you choose to stop by Fabia Hair’s 50% of Spring Sale. The sale itself is running until the 12th.

Birthday round

The Liaison Collaborative is celebrating it’s Birthday Round this month with the majority of participating merchants putting out a free gift at their stalls. While I was there I picked up the Stickwitu (do you remember the Pussycat Doll’s song of the same name?) dress from the Entice booth. This sleek bustier dress is certainly a saucy little number, isn’t it? I do love the eye-catching black on red color scheme and those symmetrical lines draw the gaze to just the right places. More importantly, the gift folder contains the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • TMP

There is also a nifty alpha layer included which certainly helps with the fitting. The Liaison Collaborative is running until the 30th of this month so hop on over to scoop up your free copy of the Stickwitu dress and more.

Fishnets

With all the talk about Sn@tch from Love {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE} and Pru {HERE}, I decided to take some time to explore the new store build. Unfortunately, I haven’t really had to time to break out the fishing rod or to stalk the Lucky Letters but I did manage to snag this week’s Sn@tch and Grab. It’s always difficult for me to shop for socks, what with needing both appliers for the Slinks and classic clothing layers for the rest of my legs so I’m pretty thankful for stores like Sn@tch that pack everything in one folder. Their Fishnet Collection 2016 is on sale this week for 50L. Not only will you get a wide selection of fishnets (5 tops, 5 bottoms, gloves, stockings, and bodysuit) they’ll come in classic clothing layers as well as easy to use omega applier huds.  I’m wearing the fishnet tights in the picture above with the corresponding layer applied to the Slinks and was pretty happy with the results.

Took a wrong turn

Skin Sale

I’m sure all of us have one store that we visit routinely and for me, one of those is WoW Skins because of the Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Manias. Since they’ve joined the 30L Saturday and 35L Sunday events, however, I’ve been more than happy to stop by this skin store more often. Upon on sale is the Relitha skin (pictured above in the tan tone) All of WoW Skins products carry that signature glossy look and I really liked the eye makeup on Relitha, especially the wing tipped effect of the mascara. The Relitha skin package contains:

  • Two system skins in cleavage/no cleavage options
  • 1 Omega face and body applier
  • Brow shape

There are four other tones (Milk, Bronze, Darktan and Golden) up for sale as well going for 30L each.

Shoes

It’s been a while since I’ve snagged some free shoes for myself and was really happy to discover that Moda was offering the Cybele leather heels as a free gift for the Secondlife Frees and Offers group. These gorgeous heels are only for the Slink feet but you’ll get three different eye-popping animal prints (snake, zebra, leopard)  on the body of the shoe in your gift folder. If you’re not feeling up to walking on the wild side there is a classic all black version of the Cybele heels (shown) included in the prize package as well. The Secondlife Frees and Offers group is free to join, so if you have a slot open hit the group up and pick up your gift. While you’re there, try your luck on the no group needed lucky chairs or hit the midnight mania board there’s no group tag needed for that as well.

And that’s a wrap. Maybe I can still salvage this situation and get these chicks over here to help me coax the local goat into at least wearing a party hat instead of eating it. Till next time guys!
