One Big Runway

KS @ Girls Heaven

Took the little man out for a stroll this morning and came upon a modeling agency!  Saw it was mostly male clients, but little man wanted me to inquire and so I did.  Unfortunately they only take on human male clients and my little man Chi was a no go.  😦  I assured him that doesn’t make him any less appealing as a canine model and that he is very handsome indeed! (You can get your very own handsome little man (or little lady!) at Jian at the Cheeky Chihuahuas Gacha, only 50L).  The key is below:

I, meanwhile, am here to also show you this cute group gift from Lamb (hair).  There are a bunch of group gifts over at Lamb, their group is free to join, so go grab some cute hair whydoncha?!

And so, like I told my little man, as long as you feel good in what you wear (or au naturel like my little man  lol) and you walk through life like it is one big runway, you are a model baby!

Until next time, happy Sunday!

Celebrating March!

bubble_017

Hey gang!

March is just *full* of all sorts of celebrations.  St Patrick’s Day, Women’s Day, Springing forward and getting more sunlight (in the US anyway), sometimes Easter…the start of Spring!!  but I bet you didn’t know that there are a *plethora* of things to celebrate in March?  Here’s just a sampling for you:

  1. March 1 – Peanut Butter Lovers Day, Pig Day! and world compliment day.  This is the day you share some peanut butter with your favorite pig and say nice things about our planet.  😉
  2. March 2- Old stuff day.  I think they made this one for me.  I’m an old stuff.  lol
  3. March 3 – This one made me stop and go “huh?” If pets had thumbs day.  Who thinks of this stuff and who decides to make it an official day?  LOL  Someone said gee it would be nice if our pets had thumbs and someone else replied, yeah!  we should make that a day.  okayyyy
  4. March 5 – Cheese doodle day!  Yay!
  5. March 6 – All about the food today, its Oreo cookie day (double stuf I hope.  Though there isnt as much stuf as there used to be.  sigh) and frozen food day.
  6. March 18 – This is my day.  Awkward moments day!  Perhaps though since it is the day after St Pattys, all those extra awkward moments come from folks who are still drunk from the night before, or really really hungover and out of it.
  7. March 20 – Busy day this one.  International day of Happiness, Corndog day (woohoo!), kick butts day aaaaaand ravioli day!  So its a happy happy day with corn dogs for lunch, ravs for dinner and a whole lot of butt kicking in between!  Can’t beat that with a stick!  (oh wait, that day comes later in the month.  you’ll see.  😉  )
  8. March 21 – Crunchy Taco Day!  Viva Le Taco!
  9. March 22 – I celebrate this every day… Goof off Day
  10. March 23 – This *has* to be my favorite.  Puppy day!!!!  OMGGGGG  I adore puppies, and maybe for puppy day, Jian will *finally* make me the cute shih tzu puppies I have been requesting for over four years since I lost my sweet Tara and can’t find a comparable black and white shih tzu companion pup anywhere in sl!
  11. March 27 – Joe day!  Hats off to all the wonderful guys named Joe!  and hats back on to those Joe’s who are *not* being wonderful.  This is also Quentin Tarantino’s birthday.  Maybe his parent’s shoulda’ named him Joe.  Joe Tarantino.
  12. March 28 – Happy Birthday to Lady Gaga!  Who shares her special day with something on a stick day and the ever popular respect your cat day.  😉

Some of these give me ideas for some blog posts.  lol  But I should get to the matter at hand, I’m celebrating two holidays and an event in my photo today.  Obviously one is St Patty’s day, which I am celebrating with yet another faboo sneak peek of the Fab Free St Patty’s Day Hunt, courtesy of Fantasy Illuminations (Previously Fantasy China/Between the Stars), with the gorgeous sparkly wall decor she made!  I am also celebrating International Women’s Day courtesy of AMUI who made this cute inspiring top, which is free at her store, no group needed!  This shirt comes in:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody classic & curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Signature Alice
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Star
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Remember, The Fab Free Hunt starts the 16th and runs to the 20th.  All the items are under 5L so it’s gonna be a blast!  You can find all the information here!  So many great designers!  So exciting!!

Now I think that’s enough babbling for me for one morning.  😉  I’ll be back soon with more goodies!!

Keep celebrating!

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Kupra, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), MeshBody Legacy

The Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat

Hello Fab Free, and Happy Weekend! I’ve got a quickie for you this Saturday morning that you’re going to love, so let’s get right to it. Jian has out the cutest Santa hats as group gifts. There are two versions, one with a puppy peeking out from under the hat, and the one I’m wearing with a kitten under the hat. Each hat has a touch menu with several color choices for the main part of the hat, and several fur textures for the kitten or puppy. Jian’s store group is free to join, and you can also still pick up their previous group gift.

Next up, I couldn’t resist sharing with you Cae’s Saturday Sale jewelry set. The beautifully detailed “Jingle” set includes pretty bow and jingle-bell earrings with a matching necklace. The set has a texture change hud with quite a few choices for the gemstones in the bow, and several metal options for the metal parts of the jewelry.

Making Holiday Memories

Holiday Memory Making

In all honesty little moments like this one are my favorite part of the holidays. I find the most joy in things like wrapping presents, and cozying up with my love to watch Christmas movies. It might be an unusual year to say the least, but we can still find moments to enjoy the little things that matter most. Blue and I got into a festive mood recently with the free hunt prizes by Always Design and Park Place on the Peace on Earth Hunt. The merriment was made even better thanks to the 60L Happy Weekend offer from Muniick. Keep reading for all the details, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free!

Always Design

Generally speaking I’m not the sort that wants to wear matching outfits. There’s something about matching pajamas however that make me want them. These matching his and hers footie pajamas are the free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Always Design. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick from a handful of solid colors for the men, and stripes for the ladies. Also, these jammies can be worn by classic and mesh avatars.

Hunt Hint – “I have the best place to watch you.”

Mens Sizes Included: Mi Mado, Adin Bento, Onupup, Slink Male, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Fitmesh Classic + Alpha Layer

Womens Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Park Place

The cuddles are brought to you by Park Place! All silliness aside, the very generous free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Park Place includes this cute PG ottoman, the occasional table, the lamp, and all the little holiday goodies you see sitting on top of the table. Everything is copy so you can rez out multiples, and the lamp can be turned on or off via touch. The ottoman has male and female sit poses, and quite a few cuddles.

Hunt Hint – “You’ll find me in Wilmington.”

Muniick

There’s nothing like the holidays to make a person feel nostalgic. That said, if the 60L Happy Weekend offer by Muniick doesn’t get you right in the Christmas feels, I don’t know what would. This weekend only as part of the Happy Weekend Sale you can get this Christmas Edition of Muniick’s Vintage Television Cabinet set for just 60 linden. The 6 piece set has a console television with11 Christmas and New Years channel options, working model train, sad Christmas tree, Ho Ho Ho blocks, cinnamon stick candles, working Christmas lights, a bonus tv with non holiday themed channels, and a larger version of the model train.

Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Have you every visited a quaint little bed and breakfast and walked in and fell in love? Then entered the bathroom and said to yourself OMG I want this. The wanting is easy in the real world, but not as easy to achieve the dream bathroom in real life. Not to mention it may not go aesthetically well with the rest of your home décor. Here in Second Life you can have it all! You just have to find the pieces to make it come true. The Muniick Chalet Rue Chabot Bathroom Add-On. Is a great start, if you love vintage bathrooms like I do.

This 60L buy will get you the towel cabinet with accessories, a working cabinet door, and touch menu color choices. The set also includes the shower curtain ring for the clawfoot tub (sold separately). There are 4 texture choices for the curtain. Finally, this Happy Weekend offer also includes a décor pack with an un-linkable bath caddy, towels, rug, toilet paper caddy, and a potted plant. If you like the clawfoot tub, and who wouldn’t, it’s also on sale separately for 60 linden. It too has touch menu color change options as well as many detailed features.

Finally, I’m sure you noticed the cute fluffy little rascal settled into his basket full of toys. This Bichon pup is a free group gift at JIAN. This adorable doggy is animated, he (or she/they) has different fur texture choices, and can be named. The JIAN group is free to join so you don’t have to resist bringing this fur baby home. The cute basket with toys means I get to bring him into any room in the house, whether I’m relaxing in the living room, or picking up the bathroom. I hope you enjoy this bundle of fluff as much as I do. Have a great weekend Fab Free!

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass
