Skateboard Love


Skaboard Love

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I thought why not show some mush and love on the blog. 😛 I’ve got my guy with me to help show this super sweet couples pose gift from the Pop Up Pose Fair and some matching his and hers hunt dollarbie prizes from the Love Me Not Hunt. Keep reading for all the important info.

The Pose – The moment I saw this super fun couple’s pose by Fashiowl, I had to share it with you! It is one of 3 free gift poses at the Pop Up Pose Fair. It comes with the skateboard props, a mirrored version of the pose, and the pose is adjustable. To get your copy of this gift and the others by Fashiowl, you’ll need to join the Pose Fair group. It’s free to join. Then you can click the gift boxes at each of the participating vendors and get your free gifts. Also, the Pop Up Pose Fair ends Feb. 14th, so don’t wait!

Waffles LMN Hunt Prizes – There are dollarbie his and hers hunt prizes for the Love Me Not Hunt at Waffles that are of course perfect for Valentine’s Day. The “Love Me” shirt for the guys comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. The “Love Me” dress for the ladies at Waffles also comes in multiple sizes and will work for classic avatars. The LMN Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a stem-less red rose. This hunt runs through the end of the month, so there’s still some time left to hunt the multiple floors at Waffles for these prizes.

The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

She’s a Little Runaway

Runaway_002

“No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head”

“Oh, she’s a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
All those things he couldn’t say
Ooh, she’s a little runaway”

I captured this picture and thought… now this is the outfit I would like to runaway in! And who knows, maybe you would like to runaway in it too! Of course it would be great for a date night or just casual wear, but if not… runaway, runaway!

Autumn Gift

It’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here! Paisley Daisy put out their autumn group gift to celebrate. The group join fee is just 50L and the creator puts out a monthly gift to make it worth joining. I love this sweet chocolate dress that is this month’s gift! It comes in several sizes to fit mesh bodies, including regular fitmesh sizes XS – XL, plus Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza sizes.

New Hair!

Like clockwork, KoKoLoReS has set out their monthly group gift, proving once again that their join fee is worth it. This month is the pretty gift hair called “Jin” which I am wearing in the picture above. It includes a hud of natural colors as well. It’s a flirty style and would work well for casual days and flirty nights, and it fit my catwa head without any adjusting.

Well I’m off! I still feel like running away for the day! Who knows what adventures I will get into… but I can’t wait to find out! Happy shopping and gift hunting!

Ready for Music

Music_002

I love when gifts just appear in my inventory! That’s what is so great about subscriber gifts 😀 And Graffitiwear has sent out their free September subscriber gifts and this month they were so cute I wanted to make sure you fabulous readers didn’t miss out!

Check your inventory!

If you’re already a subscriber to Graffitiwear, check your inventory for the free gift box from Graffitiwear for September and unpack it! You’ll discover a pair of fitmesh tee shirts. One has this great guitar design on the front (shown in the picture above) and the other has a set of headphones (not shown). Both have a “ripped” back design which I wasn’t able to get in the picture, and belatedly wished I’d thought to take a picture of. The outfit has that awesome 90’s music appeal to it!

If you’re not a subscriber, go down to the Graffitiwear main-store and click the subscribomatic for your free gift and that will also sign you up for future gifts as well! You’ll be all set!

“Bee” Beautiful

Flowers and the Bees_002

“Be” Beautiful!

I picked up this pretty dress at GeMyles as a Fitmesh Fantatics Group Gift. You just need to be a member of the Fitmesh Fantatics Group (the group is free to join) and stop by the GeMyles main-store to nab up this pretty dress for free! It comes in fitmesh sizes XS – XL.

Not only are we “Being” beautiful but I have a “bee” and flower gift to show off that is simply stunning! I showed you the latest Meva group gift in my post here and mentioned that there were 9 total group gifts out to be had. I wanted to show off some of the others and decided that this beautiful bento ring set was perfect with my outfit!

These rings are made to fit bento Maitreya hands and you get a Daisy and a Bee for your right and left hands. The group is 100L to join, but remember, there are currently 9 group gifts out to be had for your join fee!

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)
