The Secret Gate

The Secret Gate

 

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

New Roads

Oh, um hi Fab Free!  You caught me quoting from my fave book – Lord of the Rings.  Yes, I am a mystery wrapped in an enigma, I am aware!  (ha).  Anywhos, I’ve clothed myself today with a free top, that I think is pretty darn cute.  The Anita Jeans top is a free group gift at Loki, and their group is free to join!  The enclosed HUD allows you to change the colour of the top to six delightful hues.  This gift is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  There are a bunch of other gifts you can pick up while you’re there too, so hop to it!

Bunting Baby

I also found a fun little decor item in my travels – Apple Fall (which I am, of course, obsessed with and would literally buy everything in the store) has a group gift out which is super cute!   It’s this pretty Varsity bunting set which you can customize to say whatever you want.  There are a bunch of different versions in the box, so you can make longer or shorter messages, or stack a bunch of different lengths together.   This would be great for a party, or even just to hang up in your home for fun!  I may end up playing with this for ages!  You can grab your copy by joining the Apple Fall group for free, then clicking on the vendor in the front entrance area of the store.

Oh and, Happy Victoria day to all my Canuck peeps out there!

Good morning FabFree! We are very excited to announce that we have added two new bloggers to our Fabulous Blogging Team!  Introducing in no particular order, please welcome….

ALLISON TOBIAS & NEVIMARIECROSS (NEVIANA MARSHALL)


landslide

ALLISON TOBIAS

Allison has been a Second Life resident for over 10 years, which means she knows her way around the grid a little!  She logs into SL for shopping, photography, blogging and hanging out and says music is her soul.

She began blogging in 2010, and continues to blog at http://slsuchandsuch.blogspot.com/ but is so excited now to be able to blog her free content on FabFree!

Sitting Pretty♥NEVIMARIECROSS (NEVIANA MARSHALL)

Neviana rezzed in nearly two years ago and considers herself to be a fly by the seat of her pants kinda girl.  Her typical style can range from vintage pin-up to California hippie chic, to alternative rocker depending on her mood.

Neviana has previous blogging and photography experience and is looking forward to her new adventure on FabFree!

A Moment of Peace

Peace

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I have family arriving from out of town tonight, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a budget friendly hunt find that I picked up for just one Linden dollar.  Since Stan had such good luck at the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt, I decided to give it a go myself, and came away with the Gloria outfit from Sweet E’s Designs.  With its floral skirt and coordinating short sleeve top, this outfit had me instantly ready for summery weather.  The shirt features a scoop-style neckline adorned with a narrow string tied in a bow.  The mini skirt, with its column of four buttons and four pockets, rides low on your hips and hugs your curves.  Since the outfit contains both classic and mesh avatar versions, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for you.  To pick up this complete outfit for yourself, teleport over to the store and search for the puzzle piece hidden in the store.  The hunt sign out front has a hint giver, which I found pretty handy.  Since the hunt concludes on June 3rd, you still have plenty of time left.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

After my peaceful moment at Butterfly Beach, it’s time to round up Ripley, and head off to the airport.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

What kind of every day magic do you love?

The Light In Your Eyes

My Eyes Adore You

Hey there, Fab Free!  Happy Saturday to you and Happy Victoria Day holiday weekend for our Canadian and Scottish readers!  We have a three day weekend coming up in the US, and to me, it always signals that summer is just around the corner.  I hope wherever you are, you enjoy your weekend.  I have two free gifts to share with you (one is unisex, so keep reading, ladies).  Now there’s a budget friendly way to start summer!

My Eyes Adore You

They say eyes are the window to the soul. I’m not sure if that’s true, but I do know they are the first things I notice when I meet someone new.  I’m stuck with the same old color eyes in RL, but in SL, I can change the hue up whenever I like.  Today, I am sporting May Eyes from Amias, but ladies this gift isn’t just for the menfolk.  These appliers are for the Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, and feature five colors to choose from.  I selected the hazel option, which features a pale green shade accented with brown radiating from the center, but I think the blue is really attractive as well.  I really like the way the designer included a pop of white color as a reflection in the left portion of the iris.  To pick these peepers up for yourself, simply teleport over to the store, activate the Amias group tag and tap the vendor.  Since there is no join fee, you can add the gift to your inventory completely for free.

Stripes

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

While shopping at the Trashed Mainstore, I decided to check out the Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards.  I’m glad I did, because as soon as I arrived, I spotted an “S” appear, and picked up the Blurred Lines shirt, completely for free.  The prizes vary each round, so you might have to wait awhile.  Now, if you don’t see your magic letter pop up on the Lucky Board, or the Blurred Lines picture isn’t on display, don’t despair because you can still get this shirt for free as a gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.  If you’re not already a member, there is a 10L join fee, but there are Teleport Hub group gifts all around the grid, so joining is well worth the price.  This polo style shirt features a turned down collar, shorts sleeves, and  a bold red, white and gray stripe pattern splashed across a black background.  The gift package includes classic as well as mesh body versions.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)

I’m off to see what other fabulous finds for guys I can discover.  Until next time, happy shopping!

You See, I <3 Cats

Kitty

Hey there Fabulouses!  I have returned today to share three more interesting little treats you might like 🙂

I wear my heart on my panties

Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves, but I am wearing it on my panties thanks to the new free group gift at Vinyl.  In celebration of 10K inworld group members, Vinyl made these super cute little Camilla Panties that come with a 16 colour option texture change HUD.  This group is free to join!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Cute Cats

This Cute Cats Tattoo is one of the many free group gifts at Carol G. with a 130L group join fee. If you are a cat lover – this is a must 🙂  My pixel cat Betsy was a little curious about it!  This tattoo comes in three darness options and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP and Omega.

I Can See Clearly

I can see clearly in my new glasses that I picked up at The Sunnyside Up Event that the poster for the Wash Event says it’s over, but there are still many displays out.  They will be all returned tomorrow, so this is your last chance to shop the 10L event!  You’ll find the TS 1 Reading Glasses on the Battle Fairy display in two colour options at 10L each.

Bird Watching

Bird Watching

When I was little, we lived across from a big field (quite unusual for someone growing up in the big city!) and there were always lovely birds coming to visit our backyard.  We saw Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Red Winged Blackbirds quite frequently.  I’d always race to the cupboard to grab my binoculars and our bird book to identify which feathered friends were visiting today.  That either sounds completely nerdy, or insanely cozy… perhaps it’s somewhere in between!  I found the perfect outfit for bird watching – and no binoculars were required to find it!

On Wings

In my travels around the grid, I came upon a shop that’s new to me called Zhora Design.  They currently have this super cute bird-adorned outfit out for free for group members.  Join their group for free, and pick up your own copy.  It comes with the adorable skirt, as well as an omega applier top which comes in several different colours.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Beanie Baby

Fashionably Dead also have a new group gift out – this really cute hair and hat combo that comes in a fatpack of colours that range from natural to well…supernatural!  I love when hats are included in hair packs these days, since we all know what hats used to do in SL – look like you were wearing a boat on your head!  This one looks perfectly natural with options to change the colour of the hat as well.  You can grab yours by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts out as well, making this group join super worth it!

Have a fantastic weekend Fab Free!

At Safira’s display you’ll find the Fierce Necklace in several colours as a free group gift  – black, copper, rose, gold & silver.
