Love and a Cat


Love and a Cat

Hellooo Fab Free! I missed you! I had a busy weekend and just a busy February in general, but it has been good and productive so I can’t complain. As February begins to come to an end, so do most of the February hunts. One such hunt is the Cupid’s Crush Hunt. This adorable little tank top by Ghee is one of the Cupid’s Crush Hunt prizes. I also couldn’t resist the chance to share with you the 10 linden offer at the Truth or Dare Affair by EscalateD. Keep reading for all the info about these two fabulous finds.

The Hair – Spring is on the way and I love this shaggy short hairstyle for warmer months. This hairstyle is the 10 linden item by EscalateD at the Truth or Dare Affair event. It comes with 3 specialty mini huds to change the texture/hair color. The Truth or Dare Affair ends February 28th, so don’t wait.

The Shirt – The Cupid’s Crush Hunt also ends in just a few days on February 28th. It is a 2 linden hunt, so all the prizes are just 2 linden. This cute tank top is the CCH prize by Ghee. It reads “All you need is Love and a Cat” and I couldn’t agree more with that statement. haha This 2 linden hunt prize comes in several mesh sizes and has an alpha layer included making it wearable for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Them Lips

Them Lips

Hey, fabulous readers – I hope you’re not tired of seeing teeny, weeny bikinis here at Fab Free because I’ve got another one to show you, lol! 😀

Feeling Glam and Tan

La-tee-da, SL life is keeping me sooo busy. I mean, lounging by the pool sipping cocktails is just exhausting, you know?

KIDDING.

But seriously, I’ve been spending so much time in the sun lately that I managed to get a really awesome tan. Actually, I’m still a little bit sunburned, but that’s ok. Totally worth it.

And you know what? YOU can get this awesome tan, too. Because it’s a gift. From Glam Affair. 🙂

Remember a couple of days ago when Love showed you the latest Glam Affair group gift, which included the Masha applier for Catwa heads? Well, there was also an applier for LeLutka heads in the box, and it’s super cute!

Like Masha, Rachel Sunny Day has a bit of a rosy sunburn. 4 brow colors and a “no-brow” option are included, as well as 3 variations of freckles and moles, and 2 extra face contour options. A Sunny Day body applier for Maitreya is included in the box.

Rachel is so pretty that I can see myself wearing this skin for the rest of the summer. I love the tan lines!

Strings Attached

Like I said, in case you haven’t seen enough sexy bikinis, here comes another one!

The String Bikini with Mini Sarong is the July group gift from Ghee. The bikini comes with a HUD containing 6 different color textures, and you can color the top and bottom separately if you so desire.

The whole outfit comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Two Lips and a Cocktail

Merak set out the Lips Floatie and Cocktail as their latest group gift. The floatie comes in 3 options: still, rotating, and another for a standing pose. Several cute animations are included. The cocktail can be added to your avatar with or without a pose, or it can be rezzed to keep handy nearby.

Because you never know when you’ll need a summer cocktail.

GROUP GIFT AT MERAK

Ok, back to work for me. As you can see, I’m sooper busy today. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

First Stop: Coffee

First Stop: Coffee

Hey there, fabulous readers! I hope you all have been well since I last “saw” you!

I’m back on the blog after taking a bit of a break, and I’m looking forward to sharing my favorite freebies with you.

But first… I had to stop for coffee.

Summer in Stripes

I’ve been noodling around SL for a few days in this cute summer dress from Ghee.

The Summer Stripes Dress is the May group gift (still available). It includes the belt and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The colors would be perfect for Flag Day or a 4th of July party… or just to lounge around your fave summer hangout.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now. Lounge around. And drink coffee. 🙂

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Blue Monday

Blue Monday

Hey there, fabulous readers! I was so tired of snow that I packed a few bags, hopped in my car, and sped off to the first warm, sunny sim I could find. There are several really cute shops to browse through here, so I think I’ll be busy for a few days. 🙂

But First, The ‘Stuff

Before heading out on my little vacay, I picked up a few items on the All-‘stuff Hunt trail. Today I’m sharing the Womenstuff Hunt gift from Ghee: this beautiful Navy Rosa Dress.

The dress is sized for the following:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

Now… if I could just find someone to help me with these bags…

My Own World

My Own World

Panic Mode

I woke up this morning with a touch of “holiday panic.” You know, that feeling you get when the holidays are creeping up on you waaaay too fast. Your heart starts racing, you feel like you can’t breathe… you break out in a cold sweat. Yeah. It seems like summer was just starting… and now it’s almost Thanksgiving. 😮

I headed out in search of a quiet place to collect my thoughts and wound up on the couch at a coffee bar on the Oh Deer sim. A couple of lattes and some smooth jazz later, I think I might be kinda-sorta-maybe ready to tackle the holidays.

Or maybe I’ll just start with a turkey and see how it goes.

A Sweater and Leather

Before running off in a coffee panic, I managed to get myself dressed in the latest group gift from Ghee. The Ombre Sweater and Leather Pants duo come in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh standard XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A texture-change HUD is included so you can choose from brown, black, burgundy, and blue ombre for the sweater, and the same colors (without the ombre) for the pants.

Since the sweater is cropped, and I was cold thanks to the snow and all, I added a tank top underneath. I picked up the Enora tanks by Edenia on the Marketplace for 1L and used the included appliers for Maitreya. Check out Pru’s post HERE to see what they look like without a sweater.

To “top” things off, I added a cute hat. You can pick up this derby – as well as a baseball cap, felt hat, and Homburg hat – as a free gift from ICONIC at HairOLogy. I didn’t realize how pretty it was until I turned on my windlight and saw the lovely textures!

Each hat comes with a HUD containing several colors (varies by hat), and all are resizeable from the HUD. I’m sure they would also look great on the guys.

Ok, now that I’m all latte’d up, I think I’m ready to brave Costco to do some shopping. Until next time! 😀

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!
