Show a Bit of Pride, Why Don’t Ya?

Pride@Home 2022

Hello again Fabulouses! Pride at Home/Second Pride opened today with a bang running until June 12th. Though on the surface it seems like a huge party it’s actually all about raising funds for IGLA -EUROPE & BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS. If you click either of these links you can read about the work of these organizations and you’ll quickly understand why this is a fundraiser.

There is still fun to be had with DJs, dancing, shopping, several sims to explore, and gifts. And don’t forget sharing the love regardless of your sexuality. Love is love after all.

Gifties!

I am wearing four of the event gifts:

Free *NeverWish* Pride Glitter Heart Top for HG, Legacy/Petite, Kupra, Maitreya/Petite, Reborn

The Exotic Reaches of the World

india_011

Heya fabbies!

I found this gorgeous outfit at Good Fairy.  I absolutely love the Eastern and exotic styles of clothing, so this really called out to me (ok it literally screamed in my face!).  This stunning set is a free group gift and the group is free to join as well.  It comes with a HUD letting you choose from a plethora of matching colors for each part (wrap, dress, etc).  It fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Ocacin
  • Voluptuous
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic
  • Belleza

So if you want to stretch outside the ho hum and mundane, now is the chance to do it for free!

The hair I wore with it is also a free group gift from Foxy.  The group is only 20L to join.

Goddess Mode: On

kimini_002

Hey gang!

So sometimes you just want to feel like a Goddess.  Like you just came down to the ruins of the ancient world and have to power to make it all beautiful again.  Sometimes you simply find a dress that makes you *feel* like a goddess.  And sometimes, just sometimes…. that dress is free.  And you do a mad happy dance cause now you feel like a freaking goddess and it didn’t even cost you anything!  And then you start a lot of sentences with “and” even though you know you aren’t really supposed to but you feel like such a rebel and you really don’t care cause you are too busy happy dancing….  and then you think you need to come up for air, stop babbling like a lunatic (its a hobby) and tell everyone else how they too can feel like said goddess, for freaking free!

This is one of those times.

Kamiri has this gorgeous dress available as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is free to join making this gift totally free! (can’t say that happy word enough!) In fact, they have an entire area upstairs with free gifts!  Well worth the trip to the shop.  This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Classic

I absolutely love the detail on this and will be tucking this away for further wearing!  Bliss!

Hey faboo guys n gals!  (gals n guys??),

Back again with a very sweet Fab Free group gift from one of my favorites Zoom!  I’ve been setting up a space station for my newest home (isn’t it fun how you can change houses in second life??) and took a break for some shopping and that’s when I saw this.  I love the artsy-ish short with the simple skirt, it just strikes a lovely balance, don’t you think?  It comes with a HUD allowing you to choose from four matching colors (for top and skirt) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the board, if you need to join, the group is free to join, always, so no worries there!  Gift is free and group is free.  You can’t beat that with a stick!

Now, if you *really* wanna splurge, my hair is from Arata and it is only 1L.  No group needed!  There are actually several cute 1L gifts up on the wall there.  😉  So that’s that, you can get this entire outfit and hair for a whopping 1L!  Does Fab Free bring it, or what?  We got yer’ backs!

Black Spring

Coming Soon

This whole spring season has been filled with pastel shades and bright colours. However, who says we can’t have a darker spring season too? I have a hunt that has some darker prizes available for you, and I wore black to match the theme!

A Hunt at Ostara’s Altar

There is yet another hunt out this month at the hunt taking place at Ostara’s Altar by Dark Passion Events. My pretty flower crown is the hunt prize from [QE Design]. It includes a hud that allows you to change the colours of the roses, leaves and circlet to six different options. It’s a gorgeous item! All prizes on the hunt at Ostara’s Altar cost 10L each. This event ends on April 30th. You can see all of the previews of the hunt prizes right here.

Funny Slippers

The best type of slippers are funny slippers. Tooty Fruity has some fun slippers out for their April VIP group gift, which features bunny head slippers. The slippers include a colour hud to change the bunnies to several different colours- including pastel and light shades as well as the black I chose to wear. Tooty Fruity is always so generous to their group members, handing out presents every month and gifting MM board prizes regularly. Their group currently costs 49L to join and it’s well worth it!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

That’s it for now, FabFree! See you again soon,

Praying for Time

imagine_001

And it’s hard to love
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much, too much, too late
Well, maybe we should all be praying for time
Praying for Time – George Michael

Heya faboos!

Been hearing some horrible stories about war crimes being committed by the Russian armies and it just saddens me so much, how cruel we humans can be to one another.  We are supposed to be the most intelligent advanced species on the planet, but tell me, what other species is cruel to one another? Makes me question how intelligent and advanced we truly are.  So today I have donned my peace hat and am holding a light up in prayer, hoping for these atrocities to end.  It is the innocent who suffer in a war, and that is so wrong.

Meanwhile I’ve been working on this a bit longer than I would like, I’ve been under the weather but spent much of the last few days snuggled with the little man (Rocky, my Chi) and sleeping/watching tv and I have a bit more energy so I am tackling this again.

Let’s do this!

My super cute and bohemian peace hat was a marketplace find by Libelula World and it was free to scoop up!  One size fits all of course.

My top and jeans are the latest free group gift by Shanti (did you know that Shanti is Sanskrit for Peace?).  The group is 99L to join and you can grab several other group gifts as well, along with a monthly 100L that all VIP get.  You’ll also get half off all new releases so you do get your 99L worth (you basically get it right back via the gift card.  Pretty nifty huh!).  This outfit (both top and jeans) fits:

  • Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Fine
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

My awesome pose with the sparkler is from Le Poppycock, it is another of their Nextup goodies that I have been grabbing lately.  The machines are only 75L a play and there are endless poses.

Anyhoo, better wrap this up.  It’s taken me far too long!

Free the Mind: Imagination Vibrations

Monarchs Kingdom

Second Life is about imagination.  We can do things, see things, BE things in Second Life that we can only dream about.  It’s a fantasy world where we each get to be a star.

Monarchs Kingdom is not a store.  They are a performance dance troupe, and you can attend their live shows or watch their videos here.  So how, you ask, did they end up on the FabFree blog???

Each month, their creator, Royal Shippe, places a group gift of decor out for free.  Royal isn’t any ordinary dance designer, he’s won awesome awards like the Avichoice Performance Artist of the Year.  The gifts are elaborate set pieces from the many awesome shows he’s created.  They are 100% original.

The April gift (called the Megapack Holo Trees & Humanoid Statues) is pictured above includes a whole set of large and small holographic trees in a variety of colors and this sculpture called Corellia (which comes with a mirror).  I paired the set with a post set from Something New called Dress Me Again that is currently available at Cheeky Wow for a sweet 50L!!!

If you love backdrops as much as I do, you will LOVE the monthly gifts.

Every month you can pop in and get a new set!!!  Stick around for Christmas, because the advent daily calendar was unbelievable.  And the price?  FREE!!!!  The group isfree; the gifts are free.

Rumor has it that a Star Wars production is in the works and dates will be announced soon.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
