An Open Letter to Spring

An Open Letter to Spring

Dear Spring,

I know you’re still really far away, but I’d like you to come back to me.  I am aware that it is February and I live in the frozen North, but such petty little details shouldn’t keep us apart!  I’m sure whichever part of the world you’re in right now won’t mind if you come this way just a little sooner.  I promise.

Forever Yours,


Spring Hopes

I know.  I’m weird.  What isn’t weird, is this really gorgeous spring-inspired dress by Fashionably Dead.  They’ve put out a group gift for Valentine’s day that comes with an HUD to change to a myriad of different flowery textures.  I love it.  You can pick up this dress by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100L.  There are several other gifts out as well for your paltry fee!


  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

New Hair? Where!?

Sintiklia are up to their old tricks again, placing a new group gift out at their store.  You can grab this full fatpack of hair (that has several different bangs in the box, as well as a styler HUD for completely different looks), by joining the Sintiklia group for 100L.  There are plenty of gifts out there as well, making this group join super worth it.

Maybe if I dress for spring, it will come! It’s worth a try…

A New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

Hello, fabulous readers! If you’re looking for a place to live with a bit of a retro feel, then I’ve got the spot for you! This beautiful, New York studio apartment can be yours for the low, low price of FREE! 😀

But first, a bit about the furnishings.

Fancy Decor offers a new group gift each month, and ALL of the past gifts are still available! The glass console table you see here is the most recent gift. Other gifts pictured here are the chair, lamp, bell ornament, picture frame, and the clasp boxes under the table. Just join the Fancy Decor in-world group, and these – plus many more – gorgeous home furnishings will be yours!

The artwork you see on the walls are free gifts from The Loft Furniture. They’ve been around for a while, but I thought they added the perfect art deco look to this apartment. You can find the gifts HERE, but in the event that you get tp’d back to the landing point, you’ll need to walk to the west side of the store to find them. Alternatively, you could do an area search for items that are 0L. There are 4 art deco posters available as gifts.

Please keep in mind that The Loft is a large store with many items so it may take a while to load all the textures. Sometimes teleporting out and back in helps speed things up.


Ok, now for the skybox details.

Apple Fall has quietly set this cozy New York Apartment skybox as a free gift. But in order to get it for free, you need to follow these directions:

  • When you arrive at the Apple Fall store landing spot, walk straight ahead towards the mainstore to the teleporter.
  • Click the teleporter and select “New York Apartment” from the blue menu.
  • Hop on the teleporter.
  • When you arrive at the demo skybox, walk around the corner and click the big “Buy Me” tag to purchase for 0L.

I don’t know how long the skybox will be available for free, so if you want it, don’t delay!

New York State of Mind

You don’t like brick? That’s ok!

Click on the back wall (the whitish part you see here) to change the textures. There are 3 different versions available, as well as a “blank” version so you can add your own textures.

Size is about 15 x 12 meters. 10 LI.

This is a cute little apartment with a cool view of the New York skyline, made with the quality you’d expect from Apple Fall. 🙂

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂

Cat Nap

Black Cat Nap

Happy weekend (almost), fabulous readers!

This week at work has been so busy and exhausting. I thought I would just relax on this bench for a bit and take a quick cat nap. I just wish that cat would stop staring at me! I mean, I’m really not spooked by black cats crossing my path, but it IS Friday the 13th, and one really can’t be too careful. 🐱

Casual and Comfortable

I love comfy fall clothes, and this casual, off-the-shoulder sweater dress from Rir Life is no exception. The Long Sleeve Halloween Dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, but there is also an alpha in the folder so it can be worn by classic avatars. The texturing is nicely done, and there’s a sinister-looking Jack O’Lantern face on the front.

To pick up this gift, head over to the Rir Life mainstore and join the Teleport Hub in-world group (10L join fee).

Put a Bow On It

To accessorize, I added a pretty bow choker. The Ribbon Choker is the latest (I think) group gift from The Little Bat. It is unrigged (meaning you can move it around), and the bow comes in 6 different metallic colors: blue, gold, green, pink, red, and silver (which I’m wearing). Click anywhere on the choker to bring up a resize menu.

Getting Hair-y

I popped into Elikatira last weekend to pick up the Fifty Linden Friday sale item, and guess what I found out? There’s a HUGE clearance sale going on, with EVERYTHING priced at least 75% off! I picked up this sultry Olivia hairdo for just 72L if you can believe that. Fatpacks are on sale for 375L.

I don’t know how much longer the sale will last, so I strongly suggest that you don’t wait too long. This is a great opportunity to stock up on some really wonderful hairstyles at a terrific price! 😀

A Moment to Reflect

A Moment to Reflect

Hello, fab readers! So much is going on in the world right now that I needed a moment to sit and reflect. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irma right now, and to those of you who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I have family in Florida, so we are anxiously waiting and watching the storm’s progress.

A new group and a new gift

My adorable shirt is the latest group gift from Fashionably Dead. The Cropped Collar Tank is sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with a fatpack of 4 different patterns for each. I’m wearing the one on the bottom right, which is actually quite a bit bluer than it appears in the HUD.


Fashionably Dead has a new in-world group which is currently free to join but will cost 100L after September 25th. They also have a new mainstore on the Lula sim, so be sure to update your landmarks!

Stay safe out there! ❤

Have Good Vibes & Stay Incognito

When you find yourself smack dab in the middle of a green witches cauldron and dead bodies.. the best thing you can do is give off good vibes and stay incognito.  Perhaps she’ll overlook your presence as she did mine.

Overhigh is having an instore mini hunt and inside the shop you can find three hidden boxes that contain the Bex Top, Jeans Shorts and Knotted Izzie Shirt.  All of these items are free to pick up and they make for a super cute casual outfit for a warm fall season.  I am not sure how long this hunt will last, so put your hunting boots on and head down there ASAP.

I should also mention that my Bossy Socks are a free gift at  (fd) and they fit perfectly into their Bossy Boots which are 75L per gacha play.  You’ll find this machine at their shop by the socks right at the landing point.

Wondering about my bag head?  This fun Halloween accessory is the free TAG! Gacha Treat prize that you’ll get when you slap the TAG! urn at Remarkable Oblivion.

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.


I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.


Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do 😉 . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.


Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality 🙂 .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!


Ever since I saw these PB&J jammies by Nerdy Girl, I’ve been singing “Peanut Butter Jelly Time!”  Today has been one of those days when I feel like I should have just stayed in my pajamas all day. Now through Sunday June 21st, you can get these beyond adorable pajama pants and a matching Peanut Butter or Jelly (shown) top for just 10 lindens each at the Nerdy Girl Cart located at the Rally Alley Cart Sale. In addition to the PB&J shirt and bottoms, you’ll find a few others, such as Thing 1 and Thing 2 tops. The tops come with a regular system layer, an Omega applier, and a Slink applier. The bottoms are fully mesh.  Everything at this weekend cart sale is 10 lindens, and there’s even a cute little freebie for everyone who stops by the Nerdy Girl Cart.

All this talk of pj’s makes me want to take a nap, and anyone who has ever had a cat knows a cat will never let you nap alone! While trying my luck at The Arcade, I came across this adorably funny hair from Fashionably Dead. This “style” includes the sweetly napping kitty, and there is just about every hair color imaginable to be had. This mesh hairstyle, and napping cat, is just 50 lindens per play at The Arcade.

Also at The Arcade this round, these cutesy eye-masks by Olive. There are several versions of this mesh mask to be had, along with a few other items as part of their “Sweet Pea” gacha set. The Sweet Pea gacha by Olive is 75 lindens per play at The Arcade. I thought this flowery version of the sleep mask was too cute to pass up!

My outfit is the perfect thing to wear when in the mood to cast some spells. The skirt is called Magicks and the cropped top is called Sparkle! They are part of the Twisted Hunt prize that you can find for free at Snatch and what is even more amazing is that the skirt comes in a fatpack of beautiful jewel colours that you will adore.

From the Iron Cast bowl to the Wine lights and the little skull on the pile of books, it is a beautifully detailed set for the mystical among you who want to have their own little sacred space in Second Life. The Hand of Death picture frames are a little creepy though … the hand is reaching out of the frame! Eeek!
