Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

Be Sweet

Sweet

Hello Fab Free! I’m sorry to have been away so long, that ever persistent Real Life thing has been quite demanding. Needless to say I’m happy to be here and blogging again! The Candyland 2 event recently started and there are a lot of fun freebies to be had. I picked up the free event gift buy Kawaii Couture and the one from The Bold Llama. The gifts at the Candyland 2 event require the free-to-join Evil Bunny Hunt group. Keep reading for details about each of these sweet gifts. Credits are listed at the end like always.

Kawaii Couture 

I think if there was a comfort food desert milk and cookies might be one of mine. A self proclaimed sugar addict, I couldn’t resist these sweet treats from Kawaii Couture at Candyland 2. The milk bottle and heart shaped cookies are their free Candyland 2 event gifts. The held treats have bento hold poses.

The Bold Llama 

My tank top is the free Candyland 2 gift by The Bold Llama. With the word “sweet” followed by a winky-face, this top is perfect for my fellow sugar junkies, or just to let people know that like me, you too can be sweet when you want to. 😛 Whatever the message is sweet, and this shirt is too cute to pass up, especially for free.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Ebody, Ocacin, Standard Mesh (xs- XL) + Alpha Layer

Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation

I’m thinking about doing some insane karaoke in a pink wig.  It could be that I’m feeling a bit Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation.  Though she didn’t quite dress as scantily as I have today.  Doesn’t matter!  I’m going to go do some karaoke and live it up!

Starved

There are some gifts hiding all about over at Fameshed!  Yeah, sneaky sneaky…I almost didn’t see them!  If you walk around the event, you’ll find a few boxes that you can pick up if you join their free group.  There are some really cute items, so here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE hair by Ayashi in several pastel hues
  • FREE latex shorts by Glitzz, sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya

Head on over to Fameshed, before March 27th and see what’s hiding in all those boxes!

Silk and Sunshine

Silk and Sunshine

Hey There, FabFree! Have you been down to the FaMESHed event yet? There’s always something new or something exclusive from some of Second Life’s top designers. I have to keep a pretty short leash on my wallet or I could go a little crazy. Happily, lots of the designers have put out some fantastic free gifts for us.

Silk Makes Me Smile

For example… this sweet little silky romper from Luas. This is the “Sandy” romper in sky floral. As with everything I’ve seen from Luas, this is perfectly built and wonderfully textured. The Sandy Romper is available in lots of other patterns and colors for L at FaMESHed. And after seeing how cute this color is… you just might be tempted to indulge!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.

“I have enough jewelry”… said no woman ever!

FabFree: "I have enough jewelry"... said no woman ever!

Hey there Fabulouses!  I know I don’t actually wear a lot of jewerly and when I do it is usually fairly dainty, but I have A LOT of it and I love it all, big or small… so I don’t think there has been a woman ever that said they have enough jewelry.

The Cae Laurel Collection – FREE!

Today I’m featuring a gorgeous free jewelry set today that we have actually seen a little bit of on FabFree previously in Aline’s post [HERE].  I fell in love with the hair barrette and didn’t realize that she had already shown the necklace in the set.  So anyways, here’s the whole set all close up.  The Cae Laurel Collection that includes the necklace, earrings and hair barrette are a free group gift for the FaMESHed inworld group which is free to join during this December round.    Gold not your thing?  It comes with 6 metal options!
