First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

This post was featured in fab finds previously so you may have it already but I wanted to add a note about this amazing freebie

It’s free right now to join and there are a ton of past gifts available ( Up the stairs behind the welcome desk) Plus Lucky Letter and Gachas galore.

Nope! The Christmas Tree Ain’t Going Down Yet!

Nope! The Christmas Tree Ain't Going Down Yet!I am one of those people who keeps their Christmas decorations out at least another month after Christmas has passed. Yes, one of those people. I just can’t accept that the holiday fun is over! Well, let’s pretend it’s not over yet, as I have several free and 1 L wonderful presents to share with you today! Let’s open up those gifts!

Be Unique

EscalateD is known for their unique hairstyles! They are so creative and offer us so many wonderful gifts. EscalateD currently has a 500L store credit gift available at their store. The free store credit is available for everyone until January 24th, and this a gift that was left-over from the Christmas season. You just need to click the free store credit board in front of the group lounge in the middle of the store. I am fashioning one of EscalateD‘s beautiful hairstyles, Genova, which you could purchase with your free credit (or any other hairstyle of your choice in the store). I paired this hairstyle with one of their latest VIP group gifts, which is a Xmas hair colour hud. EscalateD VIP is 99L to join and it gives you access to many group gifts and lucky and mini-mania boards.

Another Winter Sweater…Dress

This lovely sweater dress is perfect for wearing indoors (which I have a feeling you are doing a lot of this winter), or you could wear some leggings under it if you dare to venture outside. This lovely dress comes in several colours which you can change via a hud and it only costs 1 Linden. This is a hunt prize at Ari Pari for the Let It Snow Hunt. The hint is, “How much is that snowman in the window?!”. The hunt ends on January 31st.

Free Group Join at LuluB!

I am wearing the Rainbow Bae lipgloss, which is a free group gift at LuluB. The group is currently free to join. Just check the group notices to grab these cute lip glosses in a few different shades. The LuluB group is currently free to join, and they also have a 500L store credit gift to grab while you are there.

Over the fields of snow

Over the fields of snow

Hello, FabFree! I know Christmas is over but a bunch of designers have left their gifts out for us slowpokes to pick up. Like one of my absolute favorites – Teegle.  You know I love my Teeglepets and I’m always on the look out for new gear for  them.  So I was thrilled when I found the loaded Christmas tree at the Teegle main store was still up.

There is a ton of freebies under the Teegle tree but this on is just so special. This is the Snow Drifter Sleigh from Out on a Whim. This classic Cutter Sleigh comes in several versions. One for Horse avatars, one for Teeglepets, one for wearable horses, even one for just display. It’s a beautiful build and I am just so excited to hook Mystic up and go dashing through the snow!

Now, I do NOT know how much longer the gifts will be available over at Teegle. So get over there and scoop  ’em up while you can. Even if you don’t want this sleigh, there are tons of other goodies. Like blankets, tack and skins for your ponies!

I have to laugh to keep from crying

I have to laugh to keep from crying

It’s Teleport HUB day for me, FabFree! I know I’ve talked about what great deals you can find by being a member of the Teleport HUB group and today’s finds will prove me right.

First is my new dress. This is “My Dark Dress” from new-to-me designer, Corvus. I had a look around the shop and I liked what I saw. Especially that there is a good selection of items for our guys as well as us girls. Gabriel will be happy to hear that one! The dress is very nicely made and it comes with a HUD for four patterns/colors. I picked this deep red, threw on a belt from my inventory and I’m ready to go!

Sizes Included

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

While still on my Teleport HUB kick, I found these awesome boots from Velvet’s Dream. The “Leather Overknee” boots also come with a HUD for eight basic colors. So these will fit right in with tons of your outfits. Remember, to join the Teleport HUB group is easy peasy. Just slap the gift board and pay the 10L join fee once. Now you have access to hundreds of awesome gifts all over the grid.

Ocean Eyes

Coming Soon to Fab Free
Hey, Fab Free! I like making new avatars/looks, and I made this one in the spirit of Billie Eyelish with the green and black hairsyle. Do you think it looks like her? It kinda succeeded but I think she ended up having her own unique look… this new avatar I created is super cute either way.

Let’s get down to the details which are a beautiful 1 L mesh body and this great free sweater!

Sweet’s Ruth Mesh Body

As many of you know, I have been working on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing. I recently made a few updates to the page so you may want to look at some of the new bodies I posted. I decided to show off a body from that list, which is one of Ruth mesh bodies. This one is Sweet’s Ruth. Isn’t the body gorgeous? It fits many Maitreya clothes and shoes, although you will need to use the alpha hud to make many of the clothes fit. To use the alpha version of the body, just open up the box included in the folder that has the alpha HUD! This body is BOM and works with all BOM skins and other products. The Sweet’s Ruth mesh body costs only 1 L on the marketplace.

Here are some more details about the body:

Fits: Maitreya clothes and feet (flat, mid, and high) for the most part, with the use of the alpha hud provided.
Omega/Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?  This body is BOM only.
Bento? Yes.
Other Notes: Includes mesh nails with a nail colour hud. There is no mesh head included with this body.

You may also want to be aware of the following known issues about the body that the creator makes a note of:

“- A small glitch can appear between neck and head
(usually on high ground)
– A small glitch can appear with feet and hands in extreme poses.
– Medium High feet often need an alpha to fit Maitreya Shoes (provided!)
– Older skins with painted on nails will not match mesh feet. Use a nailfix! (provided!)”

Just as a side note, I used the Ariel head from LOGO to create this avatar. The LOGO group is free to join and every month in 2021 they are going to sell an older head of every month to group members for only 300L. In order to use the head, you need the 3.1 version LOGO customization hud. I was pleased to hear about this sale and grabbed the Ariel head up for that low price. The head is BOM compatible. There is NO mesh head included with the Sweet’s Ruth body, so you will need to use another mesh head of your own with it or get one of the mesh heads listed on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing to complete a mesh look. Alternatively, you can wear the Sweet’s Ruth body with a classic system head if you prefer.

Beatrix

Another item I am showcasing today is the Beatrix Sweater Dress, which you can grab at the zOOm Mainstore. I found this gift by using the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group, and they have many gifts that were available for free during the Christmas train event this group ran over the holidays. Technically, the event ended around Christmas time, but a lot of designers still have their gifts out at their store. You can look at the gifts using this page, although some of them may not be available still. It’s worth a look though because I found that quite a few of the gifts are still out! I had my eye on this lovely sweater by zOOm on the list and to my delight, it was still available! Simply join the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MSGN) group for free and the sweater is yours. zOOm has 2 free MSGN gifts out at the moment so grab them while you’re there!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Have fun!

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

All I Ever Wanted

All I ever wanted

Hey there FabFree. I feel I must apologize for being absent these last few days. My 2021 started with me being a bit under the weather. No, I didn’t party too hard on New Years eve. Unless you count binge watching “The Mandolorian” and eating popcorn.  Anyway, I had to get back in world ’cause I miss you darlin’s when I’m away too long. Plus, there are freebies to blog!

I’m wearing the latest group gift from one of my favorite designers: Graffitiwear! This is ‘New Years dress’ and it’s the January group gift. If you’re already a member of the 25L VIP group, this cutie is in your past notices ready to go.  If you aren’t a member, 25L will get you in and then you just click the pic at the store. There is also a Subscribers Group to join and get a free set of nails!

I know this says it’s a dress. And if you’re daring enough it can be. Just wear your panties, if you know what I mean. I thought it gave off a more lingerie vibe so that’s how I’m wearing it. Plus, if purple isn’t your favorite color, it come with a HUD to pick one of four sparkly colors.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
