Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

Snowball Sneak Attack

IzzieGotMeBeware!

I love wandering around Izzie’s Sim!  Izzie’s is ever changing with the seasons and there are plenty of critters about to enjoy all year long, but…  beware when you walk past this house in particular because Izzie Button herself will pelt you with 5 snowballs before you know what hit you, and then – she’ll shut the door and peek at you through the window, giggling!  I know this, because it just happened to me this morning!

Winter Casuals

I was glad to be bundled up in my winter gear so I could stay warm on the walk home.  I had just picked up this entire three piece “Casual Her Outfit” at #bye in the group gifts section on the back side of the wall just at the entrance as a free Fitmesh Fanatics group gift!  The Fitmesh Fanatics inworld group is free to join!

Outfit Includes:

  • Casual Her Jeans:  Fitmesh XS-XL + Alpha Layer, Lara, Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Casual Her Cardigan (includes shirt too!:  Fitmesh XS-XL + Alpha Layer, Lara, Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Casual Her Ugg Boots w/ Shoe Base & Alpha

My photo does not do this hair justice…

At The Imaginarium Event, you will find that No.Match is participating and is offering the No Justice hairstyle as shown on my avatar as a 50L per play gacha item!  The cute hat comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the hat, brim and also the ears!  (Thanks to Izzy Christenson for sharing her extra!)

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! 🙂

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)

The Wind at My Back

The Wind at My Back

There’s a cool breeze on the air as summer starts fading here at the end of August and I’m ready for September days… but I plan to enjoy these last warm breezes with some summer dresses. And I’m thrilled with the gifts that I’m finding that are letting me do just that.

A special dress

Meva has out a new group gift dress for us ladies to add to their collection of group gifts in the group gift section. The dress is Maitreya fit only but there are two colors in the package… the cream I am showing you as well as a charcoal color. The group is 100L to join, but currently there are 9 past group gifts you can pick up. So if you are new to Meva, that’s a nice little group of gifts to pick up for your group gift fee.

New hair

I stopped by the Gacha Garden as I got a notice that there are currently 61 free gifts to be had at the event! I went right away to check it out and was thrilled with the loot I came away with. I couldn’t wait to show you my favorites.

I have three just in this post, including this beautiful fatpack of hair called Eevee by Analog Dog. Find the Analog Dog gacha machine and pick up your gift by clicking the little bag. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag, but the group is free to join, making the fatpack of hair an absolutely free gift!

Maya and Teeth

An affair… with skin!

Glam Affair has a free face applier as their gift at the Gacha Garden! I was so excited to see this beautiful applier called “Maya” as their gift! It’s in the American skin tone with lovely freckles and a pretty mouth shade. It’s perfect for that girl next door look but also lovely enough for a glamorous outfit too. And since it too is a Gimme Gacha gift, it’s FREE!

She’s got teeth!

Cae’s gift had me “hooked” from the moment I unpacked it! I love their Sharkteeth necklace and earrings set! The set even includes a color change hud so you can choose between silver, brass, or gold! And like the other Gimme Gacha gifts, it’s free! 😀

Kitty From The Garden

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulous Readers 🙂  I did some hopping around last night and found a couple of hotspots I wanted to tell you about.

First…  My new dress!!  Starr Fashion, who is the designer of women’s clothing in Second Life has a ton of freebies in the way of group gifts, midnight mania board prizes and lucky chairs offers a free to join group giving you access to them ALL!  I am wearing the Pheobe Spring Chevron halter dress that is available as a free group gift at Starr Fashion.  This dress is available in XXS – L mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh specific sizes.

Another destination in Second Life you should really take a trip to if you are into freebie finding, is The Gacha Garden Event who is celebrating their Birthday with tons of group gifts set to the free Gimme Gacha inworld group.  You can find these gifts sprinkled around the gacha machines on the ground  in boxes and bags by following the path which will take you all the way around.  My favourite of the bunch, is the Curious Kitties Birthday Present by Jian.  This little guy meows and is animated too.  He comes with options such as resize and sound on/off.

ps.  The sound on/off thing is handy for those with RL dogs like mine – who are franticly trying to locate said meowing cat, crashing into chairs, peeking under beds and ripping apart blankets.  It was fun at first but now he’s just sitting there staring at me while whining because he can’t find it. *sound off*.
