This is a PSA

 

This is a PSA
This my fabulous friends is a Public Service Announcement, or two. I know it’s still July, and you’re likely wondering about the vampy, very Halloween-esque look I’ve put together for this post. Well, that’s part of my PSA: There are less than 100 days left until Halloween!! It’s never to early to be excited or prepared for Halloween in my world.

With this in mind I picked up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Hudson’s Clothing and ran with the theme. After all, who doesn’t want to be “Faboolous?!” This tube top is one of the few older Fab Free group gifts available, an oldie but a goodie! Like all FabFree group gifts, this one is free to all group members. It comes in the following sizes and also has optional red tassel/fringe: Standard Mesh (s,L) + Alpha Layer, Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass).

This brings me to the second PSA: Have you checked out the Fab Free group gifts lately?? There have been lots of new additions to the ever-growing number of Fab Free gifts available. You can always check out the free gifts on the Group Gift Listing. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL in-world group, it’s always free to join.

Home Alone

Close to You

Hey, fabulous readers! I’m happy to be back after a hectic RL out-of-state business trip, and I have some lovely gifts to share with you. ❤

All Dressed Up… And No Place to Go

I’ll be honest: Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. Unlike Love and Carson, my significant other had to work late, and I wound up spending the evening alone. But hey, at least I looked good in this sexy number from Ghee. The Rose Lace Dress is their latest group gift, and includes not only the dress, but also the cute, flat pumps.

The dress comes with a 4-color texture HUD to change the dress color, as well as the lace overlay. The shoes have a HUD which includes the same 4 colors, as well as 6 colors for the toe cap.

Dress sizes:

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

Shoe sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For a little “bling,” I added the newest group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., the My Heart Platinum Set, which includes a necklace and earrings. All are resizeable; just touch for the menu.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

My guy may have left me on my own for the evening, but at least he remembered to send me a box of my favorite cookies. And he paid my favorite price – free – leaving him with more money to take me somewhere nice on the weekend. The Happy Valentines Flowered Heart Macaroons are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Aphrodite Shop. The box opens and closes on touch, and offers as many delicious cookies as you can eat.

Thank goodness I can eat whatever I want in SL without gaining a pound… unlike RL, where I really need to lay off the salted caramels… DOH! 😳

Hudson's Interior
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Today is the first installment of Fab Free Designer Friday. In this weekly blog post we’ll showcase a specific Fab Free designer and take the time to tell you about that designer and all they have to offer. This week’s Fabulous designer is Hudson’s Clothing Company. Hudson’s has been part of Second Life since 2008 and is definitely a shop that has something for everyone. There is mesh and system layer clothing for both men and women, as well as jewelry, eyes, and furniture. On the main floor you will find a kiosk with hunt information, event information, and group gifts for various groups including the brand new Fab Free group gift previously shown here.

Giraffe

Giraffe

Hello Fab Free! I hope you’re all doing well! It’s been a busy week for me and sharing my fabulous finds with you is one of my favorite ways to relax and wind down. Once a freebie addict, always a freebie addict! In effort to feed my addiction I picked up a few gifts and a hunt prize. First I want to talk about this lovely hairstyle from Clawtooth.

Clawtooth has always been among my personal favorite hair shops. Right no you can pick up this beautiful asymmetrical hairstyle absolutely FREE at the Clawtooth main location. The hitch is it’s only available until April 11th! That’s right, you’ve got one day left to snag this lovely freebie. There’s no need to join a group to get the hairstyle, just use the vendor at the front of the store. Long on one side, sort on the other, this fun style comes in a “unicorn” color pack of dreamy pastels.

Next I snagged this month’s FREE group gift from Hudson’s. I love this necklace and bracelet set! The labradorite gems are gorgeous. The jewelry can be re-sized via touch menu. I also really like the casual yet highly detailed look of the set, you could easily wear these pieces with anything. To add this lovely set to your personal jewelry box, head over to Hudson’s and join the group. The Hudson’s group is FREE to join.

Next I hunted down this giraffe dress at Glow Designs! No really, the dress is their contribution to the Evil Bunny Hunt that recently started. This unique mesh dress comes in standard mesh sizes, and is cute for just one linden! It’s cute on it’s own but I can see this versatile dress being extra cute with a pair of skinny jeans and white pumps. Head over to Glow Designs to find this dollarbie.

Here are the details, Enjoy, and Happy Hunting!

Let’s Have an Adventure

Adventure

Have an adventure Fab Free! At the very least, a shopping spree. That’s what you’ll feel like after you see the room full of group gifts at Lavain&Co. Yes, you read that right, there is a gift room and the number of gifts is honestly almost overwhelming! One of the several items I picked up for myself at the Lavain&Co. women’s gift room is this sleek stylish one-piece suit. This is the sort of sophisticated look that never goes out of style. The gift is called “Big in Japan” and it includes several standard mesh sizes, as well as alpha layers. This means it’s suitable for mesh and classic avatars. That said, the Lavain&Co. VIP group does have a hefty one-time join fee of 499 lindens. However, if you like the chic style, the fee is well worth the instant access to the abundance of group gifts.

Speaking of chic style, these cute blue pumps from ChicChica are a FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The shoes are a pretty dark blue with a lace-like overlay pattern, and they come in Slink high and a Maitreya fit. To get these great shoes by ChicChica for yourself, just join the Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group and click the gift vendor. Don’t wait, they’ll be gone as soon as the current round of Cosmo Sales Room ends. The Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group is also FREE to join.

Lastly, to add a little something extra to this already pretty outfit, I put on the Steam Hunt gift from Hudson’s. This FREE hunt prize is a simple yet elegant pair of detailed nautical themed pendants on a thin black cord. This FREE necklace comes in a short and a long version, and both can be re-sized. Even with the somewhat floral and lace patterns present in the clothing and shoes, I think the blue lends it’s self to the nautical aspect of the necklace. If you like the necklace it’s well worth the effort of hunting it down at the Hudson’s main location.

Twisted Gold

Twisted Gold

Gold is such an in color right now, and why not, it’s gorgeous! The Twisted Hunt has started and it’s fun to see all the pretty black and gold prizes in this Odyssey themed hunt. The Twisted Hunt prize at Hudson’s is a statement piece to say the least. This bolero style jacket in black and gold is fully mesh and has system layers included along with Omega appliers. Also included in this FREE hunt prize are some fun lace accents that can be added to the jacket for some added versatility. I chose to leave out the lace additions, so I included a copy of the Twisted Hunt gift ad below so you can see how the jacket looks both ways.

A Christmas Ride

Winter Ride

I love all the winter scenery around the grid right now. Everything looks pretty and sparkly covered with snow. It really is kind of magical, especially in a virtual setting. With so many places to explore, I donned some boots, and a warm cozy sweater and headed out for some fun in the winter sun.
Christmas Ride OutfitFor starters when picking my outfit, I had to have this FREE group gift sweater from Hudson’s. It’s a beautiful shade of red, with a frilly lace “undershirt” for some added detailing. The undershirt is not a separate piece, however there are optional add-ons for the sleeves and the hem of the shirt to add some extra frill. There is also a system layer, and an Omega applier for the undershirt strap detail that shows with the off-the-shoulder part of the sweater. Additionally, the sweater comes in standard mesh sizes. The Hudson’s group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss this great gift!

I also picked up these cute wellies from SinfulSky on the Marketplace for just 1 linden! The rubber boots come in 3 colors, all of which have a cute bow in the back. The boots do not require any feet and include an alpha layer if you’re not wearing a mesh body. They are also easily re-sized and positioned. At just 1 linden, you’ll want to add these to your closet for sure!

This pretty shoulder-length hairstyle is a FREE group gift from Sentinus. The style is called Eleanor, and she includes a color change hud with 16 color options. The Sentinus group is also FREE to join at this time, and there are other group gifts available as well. I think my favorite part of this hairstyle is the hairline, gotta love the little details!

There are so many advents going on right now, I know it’s hard to keep up. I know I’ve missed a few days at some of the stores. If you’re a sucker for a cute mani/pedi like I am, you’ll want to make sure you check out the advent gifts at Hello Dave. Each day there is a new gift with a new polish/polishes. The gifts are FREE and the group is FREE to join. Even better, you can pick up the gifts from previous days, so you don’t have to worry about missing one. I put on this red swirly sparkly polish from Day 3. The polishes are really pretty, and well worth the effort considering they are FREE, so make your way to Hello Dave and don’t forget to wear your Hello Dave group tag.

Christmas Ride Poses Rather than walk in a Winter Wonderland, why not go for a ride? I found this too cute for words bicycle prop from What Next on the Marketplace. This “Christmastime” bike is highly detailed and has 3 static poses for fun festive photos. The bike is an absolute steal at just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Friday GuyDay: Fields of Green and Gold

With all the new ladies here at FabFree, I thought maybe we could use an infusion of testosterone. So I made an “executive decision” and declared Friday to be GuyDay. It’s still Friday where I am, so I can just squeak this one in under the wire. 🙂

kuamt1_001f

My outfit today is made up of a variety of freebies, group gifts, and one very good deal. First, the good deal, which is this mesh sweater and t-shirt by Kauna that Serena picked up for me at this month’s Collabor88. For 288L, you get 5 different colored cardigans, with 5 different colors of t-shirts. You can mix and match the sweaters and t-shirts, or even wear the t-shirts without the cardigan, if you choose. So that’s… what… about 29L per item? Not free, but not a bad deal, either. All items come in standard mesh sizing. You can’t have too many t-shirts and sweaters, can you?

Now, the freebies: these mesh jeans are the current group gift from [meshTheory]. The group is 150L to join, but there are quite a few gifts for both men and women out, and a new gift is available each month. My hat/hair is this month’s group gift from SF Design (100L to join). Both the hat and the hair are color change (and resizeable), so there’s sure to be something for everyone. These awesome mesh sneakers are a group gift from BalkaniK 2.0 (free to join), and come in 7 different colors/designs. Finally, my leather bracelet is a group gift from RONSEM (free to join).

*TGIG, folks. Enjoy your weekend. 😉

A Peaceful Autumn Breeze

hudson_001

Carson showed you the men’s group gift from Hudson Clothing Co. recently, which was a really awesome scarecrow costume – and now I am showing you the women’s gift.  By joining The Hudson’s Inworld group, which is free you can pick up the Autumn Breeze Dress and also the Suede Beaded Choker.

hudson_002

 Sometimes, when I’m not shopping or blogging… I love wandering through garden type relaxing sims and just enjoying the beauty that sim owners have created for us to enjoy. Tonight I stopped in at Peaceful Moments and was blown away with the scenery that makes for a great place to take photos if you enjoy photography in SL!  The photos in this blog were taken at there and I will be sure to return soon.
