Freedom in Daisies

Freedom in Daisies

Hello hello, FabFam! Welcome to your bright and shiny Monday! Ok… well it may not be so bright and shiny here in the real world with more rain and a few thunder storms but it’s always bright and shiny here in the FabFree Group!

I’m, cruising through a bunch of our very own Fabulous Designers this week showing off what you can grab up for free with your Free-To-Join Fabfree Group tag on. Gabriel is even going to help out here in a few days.

First on my list is this little floral beauty from Harambee-Gwassi Kenya. This is the “Daisies Jumpsuit” and it’s the FabFree Group gift which means not only is it pretty, it’s free. You also get a HUD for eight colors of fabric. If none of those choices tickle your fancy, there is a color wheel mixer to make this jumpsuit literally ANY color you desire. Talk about freedom!

Sizes Included

Life in a Snow Globe

Life in a Snow Globe

Did you know that the Christmas season isn’t actually over yet?  Today is only the 10th day of Christmas, which means that there’s plenty of time for celebrating still.  I’m still busy reveling until the 6th, and I hope you will too.

Epiphany

Ashmoot are taking part in one of my favourite traditions – and that’s giving gifts for Epiphany!  When I was young, I’d always check in my stocking on January 6th to see if it had been filled!  You don’t have to wait til the 6th for the gifts at Ashmoot, you’ll find them all under the tree.  I clicked on the boxes and picked up the shorts for 10L, jacket for 20L and the little furry pompom earrings were free.  There are a few other goodies there too while you’re at it.  It all goes away on the 6th though!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique Venus

Having a Snow-ball

I’ve often heard people ask if there are affordable ways to have a place to live in Second Life.  Rent can add up, and when you’re working on a budget it’s always nice to find somewhere that doesn’t break the bank.  If that place is really beautiful as well, then even better!  The Snow Globe sim aims to create a fun community living experience in SL, on an affordable scale.   You can actually get a home with 300 prims for FREE if you become an active member in their community.  That means taking part in events such as bowling, movies, game nights and more.   If you’re not so much into participating, you can still call Snow Globe home for 10L per week and 75 prims allotted to you.  Sound good?  Well head on over to the rental office HERE for further details!

Happy (still) Christmas!

Christmas Time is Here

Christmas Time is Here

Where did the weekend go? By this time Friday it will be Christmas Day! Can you believe it? I’m half in denial myself. lol Two things that seem to go hand in hand for better or worse are Christmas and shopping. I finally worked my way through the behemoth that is the Holiday Shop & Hop event and as overwhelming as it can be, I have to admit it was worth it. My inventory now flooded with gifts, I thought I’d share a few with you.

If you’ve never gone to one of the Shop & Hop events before, there are a few things you should know. First, there’s no group needed for the gifts, just click the gift box at each of the designer’s booths. Second, there are eight sims to wander through. Yes, I said eight. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of shopping and hopping. For this post I chose to share the free Holiday Shop & Hop gifts by Eclectic Stars, Unicorn, and Infiniti. Enjoy, and happy shopping Fab Free’rs!

Eclectic Stars

When it comes down to it, one of the labels that could be used to describe me (and I think most of us in SL) is “gamer.” Eclectic Stars put out the perfect Christmas sweater for any gamer girl as their free Shop & Hop gift. It has a Christmas tree on it made entirely of Space Invader-style aliens. :O So cute!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Classic), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer

Unicorn

As a photographer and a blogger, I’ve got an ever-growing collection of backdrops and photo props and I like it that way. The free Shop & Hop gift by Unicorn is this fun wintery holiday outdoor setting complete with a snowman, evergreen tree, and a festively decorated front porch. If you’re in need of a cute backdrop for some holiday photos, don’t skip this one.

Infiniti

Finally, this pose with the snowball and falling snow are part of the free Shop & Hop gift by Infiniti. The gift includes a set of 3 poses that include a snowball prop. The falling snow is a wearable add-on, and I have to say I love the detail of the pretty snowflakes. Almost like shoes, I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many poses! For now I’m off to go see if I can’t sneak up on Blue with this snowball. Wish me luck! lol

He loves me, he loves me not….time to get romantic and dress inappropriately for traipsing through the countryside!  Two of my favourite pastimes!

My cute little tied crop top is the latest group gift from KitCat!  I may be wearing this adorable top (sized for Maitreya) all summer, not gonna lie.  To get it, all you have to do is join the free KitCat group and click on the vendor. Can’t get easier than that!  There are a few lucky boards there too, if you’re looking for more free fun.

Shoe-Tastic!

Over at Little Fox, they’re treating members of their free-to-join group well with these super awesome shoes that go alllllllll the way up your legs!  I can think of so many occasions I could wear these to.  These pretty heels come in a full fatpack of colours and are sized for Maitreya, Signature Alice and Legacy bodies.

One More Stop!

There’s one more place I’m sending you today, and that’s the Pose Fair Market.  Their latest round has begun, and If you join their free group, you’ll gain access to a massive pile of gift boxes, each containing a really nice pose.  I’m showing you the offering from Infiniti which comes with the cute daisy I’ve got in my hands.  Love it!  The Pose Fair Market is running until June 24th.

Enjoy your weekend, Fab Free!

Space Age Spring Cleaning

Space Age Spring Cleaning

Since I have to be socially distant and all that jazz, there was never a better time than this to start working on my space station.  I’ve been neglecting the Jeffries tubes and power couplings for far too long, and a few cobwebs have even gotten into the hyperdrive.  That just won’t do.  Time to suit up and get this place in working order!

Oh, Look!

Over at the Look Event, you can pick up this awesome space themed outfit for free!  All you have to do is join the Media-SL group for free, and then click on the vendor.  Everything I’m wearing is included, the top, jacket, pants, boots, gloves and even those tools on the belt.  This will make my space-tinkering much easier!

All My Lovin’

All My Lovin'

Oh goodness Fab Free, are you ready to be drowning in gifts yet again?  It’s time for yet another round of the Linden extravaganza known as Shop & Hop!  It seems like only a little while ago (aka December) we were visiting the massive builds and picking up loads of free goodies, and here we are again swimming in boxes.  It’s an excellent problem to have!

Shoppin’ and Hoppin’

I’m trying to stay organized this Shop & Hop round, so I focused on just one sim at a time.  I went to the Aurelian sim first, and found all sorts of gorgeousness.  It was very hard to choose what to show you, to be honest.  Here’s what I put together:

  • FREE top by Miss Chelsea in three different gorgeous textures sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Physique
  • FREE lingerie by Alaskametro in three different colours with appliers for Classic Bodies, Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE crown by Baiastice
  • FREE poses with lolllipop prop by Infiniti, three different poses in the box

I can’t tell you how many fun things there were to unpack, you’ll just have to see for yourself!

Life’s a Party

Life's a Party

So what if New Year’s Eve has passed?  I say you should wear your finery whenever the mood strikes.  For example, if you’re called to install a dishwasher that for some reason has decided to be the most complicated thing known to mankind (wire your own plug!), then I say that’s the perfect excuse to wear a feather boa.  Life is a party.  Dress like it!

Exaggerate, Moi?

So I may be exaggerating just a titch, but you know how it is in SL, dress as crazy as you like, and it will still be considered normal.  To that end, I have you nipping about the grid a bit today for your fancy clothing!  Here’s where I’ve been:

  • Sass‘ January group gift is out!  A sexy dress in a pretty green hue.  To get it, join the group for 10L, and pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  It comes sized for Freya, Maitreya, and Hourglass, and even comes with it’s own shawl, which I substituted for the next gift…
  • My gorgeous fur shawl is the latest and greatest from Cureless.  You can get it (and a bunch of other gifts) by joining their group for 99L!

Phew.  Did that all make sense?

I have a dishwasher to wrestle with, where are my diamonds?

Fae Maiden on a Winter’s Eve

Winter Fae 4

Happy late-Monday, Fabulouses!  I couldn’t head off to bed without sharing our latest Fabulous Find with you.  Yesterday, Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the trail on the Fantasy Cream V Hunt.  For only 1L each, you can seek out prizes with a Medieval/Fantasy flair. The event started on November 18th and runs through December 18th, so there is plenty of time to don your Sherlock Holmes cap, and round up some goodies for yourself.  With 34 stops on this hunt, there are plenty of gifts to be discovered.

Winter Fae Maiden

At Beyond Persuasion Designs, Ripley and I scouted out this gorgeous formal number for just one little linden dollar. The bodice of the Winter Eve’s Guardian Fae Anise gown features poinsettia flowers embroidered in gold thread, and the skirt has glimmering white panels alternating with foresty green.  Long, fur trimmed sleeves, which are optional, keep your arms from experiencing chilly breezes.  Although I usually don’t partake in role play in Second Life, I could see this gown coming in very handy for a Medieval/Fantasy sim or for holiday parties.  It is also lovely just for roaming around and looking beautiful!

What’s Included:

  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Rose and holly hair adornment
  • Optional sleeves with separate alpha

Winter Fae 3

I’ve included this close up picture to showcase the holly and rose hair piece that is enclosed with the hunt prize.  I thought it added a festive touch to the outfit, just perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  In this shot, you can also get a good look at my nail polish, which is another 1L find.  Leap of Faith is offering this Slink manicure/pedicure set as a 1L Christmas gift in their Marketplace store.  I brushed on the gradient red to green glitter, but the package also includes 5 other polish options.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  Ripley and I are off to seek out new Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping hunting!

Kindred Spirits

Hello my FabFree Dears! I hope no one minds that I’m doing two ‘Fairy’ themed posts in a row. I couldn’t resist when I saw that BlueMoon Enterprises had put out this great new Group Gift: The Summer Fae.

bluemoon_002

I’m sure our readers who are more role play inclined are familiar with BlueMoon, the shop is full of beautiful RPG / fantasy/ medieval clothes and items. But even if you aren’t “one of us”, you can still appreciate this gorgeous dress. You get the lovely underdress, I’m showing, plus the gossamer wings and a lovely lace-like over dress. I’m also wearing the “Baby’s Breath Wreath w/ Butterflies” from Tamiron Forge and it’s a prize in the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt going on till July 19th. The Medieval Fantasy Faire has a ton of great designers and a gacha garden as well. I was unable to find a web site for them ( other than what I’ve posted here) or a list of the Mini Hunt participants. If any of y’all out there have that info I’d be thrilled to get it.

Another prize in the Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt is the ‘Celtic’ necklace from Acios.  The simple elegant design is compliments by the huge HUD wil four metal choices and the twelve stone color choices. I love it when one piece can go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

Update – This is the Hunt Object for the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt. Hope this helps out a little.
