Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

All things free at Meander/Me

Meander/Me is having a little celebration that includes tonne of freebies.

First of all, there’s the Frosted event. This event took place at the Meander/Me store. Each day between December 15th and 23th, a new item was released for sale between the cost of 0L and 99L. There are a bunch of cute items on the wall still up from the event. My cute glasses with the Reindeer nose and pretty earrings are both free gifts on their Frosted event.

Halloween Memories: Trick or Treat?

Trick or Treat - Coming Soon

When I was a kid, my favourite part of Halloween was decorating our front lawn with my Mom. The day she brought home a huge inflatable pumpkin was one of the best memories I had as a child! I was so excited. Now I have an epic inflatable pumpkin for my garden here in SL and some other great Halloween decor which I have set up for the night of trick or treating on the 31st. My house is definitely ready for the big night now. 

Here are the details about the free decor items shown in my post today:

  • The pumpkin inflatable is a free gift at Apple Fall. Look for it in the store. It’s in one of the rooms and it costs 0L, no group required. 
  • The cute little orange pots are the latest free subscriber gift at Noveny! Just click the subscriber and they’re yours. If it doesn’t work for you at first, just un-subscribe an re-subsribe to get the gift. 
  • The little cauldron at my feet gives out “tricks” or treats- like candy and other goodies to all your guests and trick-or-treaters. The cute alien lollipop I am holding is from the cauldron! The cauldron is free at Junk Food and no group is required to get this amazing gift. 

Trick or Treat - Coming Soon

A Look to Match!

The other thing I want to share tonight is this absolutely adorable outfit that will match all your new cute Halloween decor. My top and skirt is one of the free gifts from [QE Designs] at their booth at the Halloween Shop & Hop. This set comes in three cute Halloween texture patterns that can be changed via a HUD. [QE Designs] has several other gifts included in their giftbox at the event in addition to this set, so enjoy all of their lovely free goodies!

Bedroom Look

Coming Soon

I’m not usually one to walk around in lingerie, but there’s a time and a place for sexy, revealing and cute bedroom looks. I have just a couple free gifts for today including  dumplings, and a great hairstyle shared in my “bedroom look” today. 

The Features!

The adorable and yummy dumplings I am showing today are the latest free group gift at Birth. These dumplings are available to wear by holding them in your hands or in your mouth. I’ve been wearing these in my mouth around the grid because they are sooo cute and look like little kitty cats. 

The other gift I am showing today is the beautiful hairstyle, which is another free gift on the Men Only hunt. You can find this lovely prize at Limerence. The hair comes in a pack of pastel colours, and it is a unisex style that can be worn by all genders. See my post here and Gabe’s post here to read more about the Men Only hunt. The hunt ends on August 30th, so you only have a couple of days left to hunt and gather!

Woman on a Man Hunt

Coming Soon

This week I will be showing a lot of love for the Men Only hunt. This is an awesome event! There are great prizes for the guys on this hunt, and also some unisex items that can be enjoyed by all genders.

More about the Men Only Hunt

The Men Only Hunt is the latest event run by Flair For Events, the same folks who organize the Women Only hunt and many other great events throughout the year. All of the hunt items on are free, and you are looking for the little bird at each store. To get the LMs, go grab the hunt hud at this LM and grab it for free by joining the Men Only Hunt hunters group. Here is the join code for the group: secondlife:///app/group/7f60c53b-ab9b-072b-b577-45288557083f/about

Once you have the HUD attached, simply click the map to TP to each location and once you are there, click the “click for a hint!” button on the hud, and it will post your hints in local chat.

The Prizes!

Now it’s time for me to share some of my fave prizes on the hunt. 

The amazing melty pizza and the burger I am holding are the free hunt gift at Junk Food, and the gift also includes hotdogs to hold too! These foods are inspired by Memphis eats, which I have never tried but they are cheesy, melty and delicious looking. 

Junk Food - Messy Memphis Eats

Another amazing gift on the hunt I had to show is this catmobile at Jeys. I just love it! It reminds me of a crossover between a beetle and catwoman. So funny and cute. I can’t believe it’s free!

MOH2021-GIFT
My amazing hairstyle is the free hunt prize at Ayashi as well, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours. The hair can be worn on both male and female avatars.

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

Coffee Date

Fabfree Post: Coffee Date

The Need for Caffeine

I am in need, desperately, for a coffee date with some of my closest gals. So I set up a cute little shot with some goodies to entice them to show up for a long overdue gab session! I’ve set the mood for relaxation and caffeination that will end up turning into a lovely long catchup session. We all need to have these dates back with our gals in real life soon. I’ve missed it so much, though I’ll never tell in real life 😉

The Goodies on the table are from a Group Gift from Andika comes with Coffee, Berry Ice Cream, and Fruit, the items are animated so you can put them out for your guests and they can eat/drink! Each item is 1 – 2 LI each. Not too shabby for these quality mesh items and they will last a lifetime for your housemates or guests. Have a coffee date with a gal pal, this will have you covered and will add a splash of class.  The Andika group is currently 150L to join.

Hot Diggity Dog!

77th St 7L Hot Dog Vendor

Hey gang!

It’s time again to go strolling through 77th Street for lots of gorgeous items and don’t forget about those 7L deals!  I got so hungry walking around that I grabbed myself a hot dog.  Soooo yummy!  Actually, I wanted *endless* hot dogs (health food nut that I am… not!!!), so I bought the entire Kei’s Old Time Hotdog Cart vendor for a whopping 7L!  And the hot dogs it hands out are absolutely *delish*!  A perfect weekend treat!  A stroll in the sun, shopping for goodies and a hot dog to bring along!  That sure sounds like a happy Saturday afternoon to me!

(admit it, you are craving hot dogs for real now, aren’t you??)

My hair is a Free Energy Group Gift (group is free to join) from Fabia and the necklace is a gacha from Fabia too.  😍
