Pool Day

Pool Day

Hey FabCrew! My computer is now officially… “On the Work Bench”. With any luck my new screen will be here Friday or Saturday and I can get back to normal. But for now, thank heavens for a packrat husband who never throws anything out including old laptops.  It’s all a perfect reason to just stay here at the pool on the Grid.

I figured a hunt would help leave my worries behind so I grabbed Gabe and we popped over to Rea to hunt down these cool graphic swim suits, both named “Read Me”.. My bikini and his board shorts each come with a HUD to pick one of 6 black and white graphic patterns. The fit is perfect and the suits are a beautiful build. Both suits are part of the “Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt” and will only set you back 1L for each.

With all that black and white, we need a dash of color now! Partners in Crime are supplying that with these super cute pool floats. The “Free Willy” whale floaties are the current free gift for all us Fabulously Free Group members! So you can add them to your pool or hot tube or lake or wherever just for being an awesome FabFree Member. Willy comes in all three colors you see here and each whale has 3 sits for male and female.  

So we are gonna kick back and drift around and soak up some sun without a care in the world. So go grab your suit and dive in!

Sunshine state of mind

Sunshine state of mind

Hey FabFree, I hope your week is starting off with bang or at least a good Monday. My was kinda exasperating… I broke my brand new computer screen. So now the right side of my screen looks like it’s trying to contact the Netherworld. But… I will not worry, things can be fixed and instead of freaking out… I’m heading to the beach!  Besides, I have a brand new super sexy bikini to show off!

This is “Summer Body” from DM Designs and you can add it to your collection for free as part of the Summer Nights Hunt.  It’s so nice to find a completely free Hunt now days, isn’t it? And when you’re getting really amazingly beautiful prizes it’s doubly nice! The build is perfect and the tiny details of the loose weave are really impressive. There’s nothing like a designer who really knows their stuff!  

Sizes Included

  • Legacy – Classic, Perky
  • Maitreya

The Summer Nights Hunt runs until August 14th so you’ve got lots of time to enjoy all the goodies you can hunt down.

Don’t Let it End

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I hope you are all keeping well and not having the August blues. I admit I am a bit because I just don’t want to summer to end! I know I talked about Autumn in my last post and although fall weather is my fave all the summer holidays ending and going back to work is definitely not my favourite. Time to hit to beach again as many times as possible and party hard before I have to hit the grind of hard work again!

Many Gifts @ Psycho Barbie 

All the gifts I am showing today are from Psycho Barbie. This is an amazing store, and if you join their group for 100 Linden you can grab a whole bunch of their previous group gifts. Some of the group gifts I am showing from Psycho Barbie include:

  • The amazing and cool Yoko sunglasses, which come with several patterns and words on the glasses. I love these. 
  • The finger-length silver rings I have one. So detailed! 
  • The gorgeous henna tattoos on my arms. I love these and they are BOM. 

I am also wearing the TeleportHub gift at Psycho Barbie, which is this great collar with the crescent moon on it. If you join the TeleportHub group for only 10 Linden you can get this lovely collar gift. You can change the colour of the crescent moon to a myriad of colours via a hud!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Daydream

Daydream

Hey Fab Crew! Welcome to the start of the weekend at last! Now I know weekends are awesome but you know what makes them even more awesome?  Discovering a New-To-Me designer! I stumbled upon Blackbird Lace today and I couldn’t be happier. Such nice designs and really beautiful builds. What more could you ask for? How about nine lucky boards/chairs AND a wall full of current and past Group Gifts?  I hope you said yes because that’s what we got here!

I picked out this sweet full outfit set, “Adley” from the past group gifts to show you today because it pinged all the Summer feels. I love the bright happy print and blue and yellow are so classic together. Plus you really do get the full set – the mini dress, the heels and the cute bag! Perfect for a Summer stroll.

  • Maitreya

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

It’s a very drab dreary day here in the Real world today. Everything is rainy and drizzly so I need some sun! Even if it’s “just” my newest little summer sundress. 

This is the “Karen Dress” from Dreams and isn’t it a lovely sunshine yellow!? The crocheted look is so delicately done and shows off just enough without reveling too many secrets. But you might want to find some pretty sunny yellow panties to wear with it, if you catch my drift. 😉 Plus, if yellow isn’t your thing, the included HUD will let you pick one of twelve other summery colors.

Karen is the current gift up for the Teleport HUB group over at Dreams. Just wear your tag and slap that board! The Teleport HUB Group is a measly little 10L to join and then you get access to hundreds of great free gifts all over the Grid. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to pick up the FabFree Group gift for free as well!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Can’t Stop the Beat!

Can't Stop the Beat

Hey, FabFree! I’ve been really enjoying rocking out to music all week, so I decided to commemorate that with a post. I wanted to find a microphone and pose to belt out singing some tune but that was harder than I thought it would be… maybe next time ;). In the meantime, I’m just hanging out and dancing at this little vinyl vintage music hangout I built for myself. You can’t stop the beat!

A new FabFree gift @ MOoH! 

First off for today are these rocking heels and high socks at MOoH! This is their latest free FabFree group gift, and they are fab. Just join the free FabFree group to get this great gift at MOoH!. You can change the shoes and socks to white, black and red, and add a few patterns to the socks like this hot heart thermometer pattern. I thought that heart beat pattern reminded me of sound waves, which went perfectly with the vintage and retro vinyl records backdrop and music theme I selected today’s post!

All the Vintage

Speaking of retro, I got this great vintage hairstyle at the 60’s Shopping Event & Treasure Hunt, a new event that looks really exciting! This event has a treasure hunt on, which means that at the sim you will find 2 types of gift boxes. Some give their gifts on touch, and others will ask a trivia question. Those with the trivia will open a window where you can type your answer. When the answer is correct, you receive your gift! Isn’t that awesome? Alli&Ali Designs has 8 vintage hairstyles set out as free gifts for the treasure hunt, including this cute updo I have on. Time to get retro hunting, FabFree! I’m not sure when this event ends, so go quick!

More frees at the Sn@tch Outlet!

The sexy black and purple skybox seen in my backdrop is a freebie at the Sn@tch outlet. As long as I can remember, this item has been in my inventory along with all the other great freebies they have for new residents when I went there as a week-old newb about 3 years ago. The skybox is still super hip in my eyes and it worked perfect for my shot today! The freebie also includes furniture and you could easily set yourself up with a new skybox to live in! No group is required for this one, just head over to the “free wall” at the Sn@tch outlet. and grab it for 0L. They also have a host of other great freebies in their outlet including a great skating AO, some spiky leather bangles and more so if you’ve never been to the Sn@tch outlet I highly recommend it!

Go dance to the beat, FabFree!

If Tables Could be Sexy

Coming Soon

I have good news for all you decor lovers out there! I have news of some gorgeous free tables for your lovely homes and skyboxes, so I hope these fulfill all your latest decorating needs. 

Two Gorgeous Gifts @ Noveny

Both of the gifts I’m sharing today are from Noveny, an excellent decor store. The circular brown wood coffee table with the vase, magazine, and silver coasters is the latest FabFree group gift at Noveny. If a coffee table can be sexy, this table is it. Just join the free FabFree group, and slap the gift board near the front of the store with your tab active to get this sexy table!

The other freebie is the two-parted end table seen next to my sofa. This is another “coffee table” at Noveny, but I thought it looked more like an end table in my place as my sofa is quite low. Nevertheless, it’s gorgeous and it is a free subscriber gift. Simply hit Noveny‘s subscriber for free and it’s yours!

Enjoy the new decor goodies, FabFree!

Sakura Petals

Sakura Petals

Good evenin’ Fab Crew! Have you ever looked at something and thought, “Yeah… that’s okay. Cute enough.”  But then you really look at it and think, “WOW, how did I miss that? This is so so cool!”  Maybe it’s me… Anyway, I have two items for this post, one you’ve already seen but I couldn’t resist showing again and one I almost tossed out because it was ‘just another mini’. Both of these items are from the Dubai Third Anniversary round.

First is my hair. This is No_Reason from No_Match and our adorable Cre showed it off in her post here. I saw it and thought, “Browns… I don’t need brown hair,” But I unpacked it anyway and saw one of the browns was kinda auburn. I popped it on clicked ‘edit’ and then changed the color from basic white to a more orange color. And Bingo! Red hair!  I’m saying all this because with a little easy fiddling this Freebie was just right for me when I had thought it wasn’t at all. It goes to show ya, don’t pass up a free gift until ya mess around with it. You might miss out on something cool. Well, that and trust Cre, she knows what she’s doin’ 😉

Second, is my lovely new mini, the “Medea” dress from Flirt. When I unpacked it I was a little ‘meh’ about it. Then it rezzed fully and I took a closer look. The pink ‘splashes’ are gorgeous branches of cherry blossoms! The pattern reminds me of the old paintings on silk in Japanese art. The vibrant contrast of the delicate pink and white on the ink black background is really stunning. And the workmanship in the dress is simply beautiful. And to think I almost passed it by.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
