Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Well, the world is hot right now.  It’s getting more than a little toasty out there, don’t you think?  I’m eyeing my friends in family (and readers!) in Europe with some concern, so I hope that you’re all managing to stay as cool as you can in the circumstances.  I’ve got a few virtual stay cool tips today, so though it may not help with the RL situation, at least you can chill inworld.

Always Alaskametro

I will say it ’til the cows come home, but Alaskametro really is one of my absolute faves.  The makeup!  The clothing!  The nail polish!  Everything is consistently perfection, and I won’t ever tire of repeating it.  There’s been an update to the lucky chairs this past week, and you’ll find plenty of really cute outfits, accessories, skins and makeup to put together some great looks.  Since it’s so hot, I’ve got a rather skimpy look going on, with the Belladonna lingerie as my top/underpinnings (with appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and BOM layers), plus the Eve shorts to give me a bit of coverage.  Top it off with the macaron nail polish, and you’ve got yourself a lewk.  There are four lucky chairs around the store in Alaskametro, and to take part, you’ll need to join their group for 50L.  There are a bunch of group gifts to pick up too while you’re at it.

  • Legacy

A Pint at La Plage

A Pint at La Plage

Clearly the beach has been calling to me these days.  I think that a bit of the sound of crashing waves never goes amiss, the sea soothing the soul with it’s calming call.   Also, the call of ice cream soothes my soul too.

Beautiful, Dirty, Rich

BDR have a new group gift, and that’s always good news, because it’s always something fun.  The lacy top I’m showing off is the latest, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours so you can match it to pretty much anything.  Perfect for your summer wardrobe!  I paired it with an older group gift you can pick up at BDR as well – the Weekend in Bora Bora pants are an oldie but a goodie, and they look really great with the new top.  There are so many group gifts to pick up at BDR, and the group is free to join, making this outfit completely free.

The Love Shack

The Love Shack

It’s beginning to look a lot like… SHOP & HOP!  Yaaaaaaaay!  Oh gosh, we are always so entirely spoiled when Shop & Hop rolls around.  Plenty of gifts, all of them free.  I’m nipping out into the cold just to pose very meaningfully in a way to underscore just how excited I am for all things pink, red, and completely sweet.

Love is in the Air

Phew ok, calm down Aline.  Breathe!  As you may (or may not know), we at FabFree basically venture out into the world of our own volition, find things we want to blog, pay any associated fees, join the groups etc etc etc.  It’s not an easy task, but we all love it very much.  When it comes to Shop & Hop, it’s a massive undertaking with 10 shopping regions and over 200 stores to visit.  Today is early access day, so I made my way over and picked up as much as I could, unboxed it, tried it all on and put together my faves.  Phew!  Anyway, keep reading to find out how to get early access and where to find direct links to every store.  Here’s what I picked up!

  • FREE dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite & Perky in both opaque and transparent versions
  • FREE bracelets by Michan (see closeup below)
  • FREE cookie by Hangry in several different colours
  • FREE hair and hat by Elikatira with a massive HUD included

 

Shop & Hop officially opens tomorrow, but you can join the SL Birthday group to get in early.  You’ll find all the participating stores and direct slurls right HERE.

Copy and paste this code into chat to join the group: secondlife:///app/group/8db35111-979b-14a7-6a74-b47be86ce04f/about

Sweater Weather

pcp_005

Hey gang!

Tis’ me!  I’ve been soooooo busy lately getting the advent started in my shop and helping Juli get the mall ready for Christmas, but I am still here.  Real Life gave me a couple of swift kicks lately too, but it’s nothing I can’t handle.  Especially when I’ve got yummy group gifts to show you!  And most especially when they have pink and Unicats on them, squeee!!!

I’ve been sneaking about the grid here and there and one of my most favorite things I’ve found lately is this super cute *older* gift from Pink Cream Pie.  When you join their group (314L to join), you not only get current gifts, but you get a hoard of older gifts too, which is where I found this beauty.

This cute sweater fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

More soon!  Hope y’all are staying toasty warm!

You Keep me Hangin’ On

You Keep me Hangin' On

Ok, I’ve put aside thoughts of snow and tinkling bells for the moment, because I want the golden hues of Autumn to last just a little bit longer.  The wind is blowing the leaves away bit by bit, so I’m trying to enjoy every last moment of the year’s last bright blast of colour.

I Pick You!

Paper.Sparrow have a new picks reward prize out – this plush and cozy sweater dress in a lovely caramel hue.  To get it, you need to head over to Paper.Sparrow, and then create a pick in your profile about Paper.Sparrow.  When you’ve done that, click on the board and your prize will be sent to you (you may need to wait up to 48 hours for it to be delivered – but it will get there!).  Yep, that makes it completely free! How cool is that?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Stay Warm

To complete this fallish look, I clearly need a really nice and cozy scarf.  Luckily, Poème have got me covered (literally) with a gorgeous collection of scarves that drape artfully over your shoulders and keep you toasty warm.  They’re just 75L each til the end of the month.  Check out all the different hues, because they really are pretty!

Enjoy the last hurrah!

So Retro!

So Retro!

I don’t know exactly what it means to be “retro”.  I suppose being a child of the 80’s (does that make me old?) can be a bit of a retro thing.  I prefer the term “new wave”, but I suppose that’s not really used anymore!  Here’s my vision of retro:  bright colours, hotpants, insane hair and a burger.  It’s probably not retro at all, to be fair, but let’s just roll with the punches!

Flamingo Time

My cute and bright top and shorts outfit is the latest group gift at Flamingos.  The group is completely free to join, making this fun little getup completely free.  The top is a bright yellow mesh top that you can wear with jeans if you so desire.  If you’re wading into the little shorts, then they come with classic layers as well as an Omega applier.  The pink just makes me happy!

Shirt Sizes

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

Back Off My Banana Split

Back off my Banana Split

Anyone want to join me for some ice cream?  Summer calls for the most decadent of treats, I say.  I think banana splits may be on the top of that list for me though!  And speaking of decadent treats…let’s grab a delicious bikini without spending too much!

Back to the Beach!

The Beached Bunny hunt is in full effect, and you’ll find this really lovely bathing suit over at MOoH!  I couldn’t say no to the amazing textures that come with this cute swimwear, and best of all it will only set you back 1 little Linden and a bit of hunting time!  Your hunt hint is “Look behind the tuliphead”.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • XXS – L

Sorry guys, this banana split is all mine!

Friends don’t fry

Fabfree Post: Friends dont fry

Where is the next season of Stranger Things?!

I am waiting for the next season of Stranger Things with my Eggo’s by my side. Totally addicted to the group and my personal favorite is Eleven, who is a total one girl army! With the show starting their season 4 production in February I believe we will have to wait a little longer for its release.

Speaking of Stranger Things, MooLoo has a cool free tattoo as their group gift, could it be better? YES! The group is free to join and there are past gifts too. I won’t kill the surprise of the back of the tattoo but if you like the show I do suggest you head over and snag it. The Stranger Waffles Tattoo comes in faded and fresh options, adding the hud gives you the applier options for Omega, Belleza Male & Female, Slink, Signature, and Maitreya.

Olive has a wig up for The Saturday Sale, the Dash Hair which comes in two styles, one is a full head of hair color and the other is split where the front of your hair is one and the back is another. So creative!! So the reason why I’m making it a point to mention the shop here is that they have Lucky Letter Boards with no group needed! There are several boards up and 100% free all you need to do is wait around for your letter to come up.

Triggered has a nose ring as their Free Group Gift, the Hearted Septum comes with a color hud with 4 metal options to choose from. The dainty little heart hanging off couldn’t be cuter than it is! The group is L$50 to join, but for this nose ring, I felt it was worth it for me.
