Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Paper.Sparrow


Hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to have a new “Designer of the Week” post happening. I know it’s been too long. That said, this post is all about a shop called Paper.Sparrow. The Paper.Sparrow shop is a women’s clothing boutique with what I would call a grown-up-cute style to the clothing. Most of the clothing is feminine casual daywear in pretty colors or patterns. There are some shoes and dresses as well, all with a touch of sweetness and sass.

Right now there are 3 lucky letter boards at Paper.Sparrow, and 6 Paper.Sparrow group gifts. The Paper.Sparrow group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. The July group gift is a 150 linden gift card to Paper.Sparrow however, which more than makes up for the join fee. You’ll find the generous July gift waiting on the desk just inside the front entrance. With your group membership you’ll not only have access to the lucky boards, and the group gifts, you’ll get 10% store credit when you shop at Paper.Sparrow while wearing your Paper.Sparrow group tag.

In addition to the store lucky boards, and group gifts, there are 2 more group gifts for other store associated groups. One gift is for the Fashionable group, which has a 5 linden join fee. The other gift is exclusively for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The cute heart flats are free when you wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, the group is free to join. All the gifts, and the lucky boards are right inside the entrance to Paper.Sparrow. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Red White and Blue

Red White and Blue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, that pesky Real Life is relentless at times. Needless to say I am happy to be back, I missed you guys! If you live in the States like I do, our most patriotic holiday, Independence Day, is nearly here.  Personally I just want to celebrate with friends and and family and take advantage of the opportunity for some summer fireworks. It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some red, white, and blue gear to show your patriotic spirit. I picked up two free Independence Day inspired gifts to share, I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Bikini Top – I think this free star shaped bikini top from Dirty Princess is a must-have. Not only is it perfectly patriotic, it’s also something I’d wear all summer, no holiday needed. This free Dirty Princess group gift comes in 2 versions, the one with white ties shown, and one with red ties. The Dirty Princess group is free to join. This free gift is sized for Maitreya only. To get yours head over to Dirty Princess, enter the store at the entrance with the horses, the gift is waiting next to the desk.

The Phone – For a little fun ChicChica put out this cute patriotic cell phone out as a free for everyone gift. There’s no group needed, just purchase the gift for zero linden. This free USA themed phone has a hold pose. You’ll find this freebie waiting on the ChicChica desk.

Here are the details, enjoy!

WoW EmilyC

EmilyC 1Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs, this post has been a long time coming, as those of you who follow my Flickr know, and I apologize for the delay. Real Life has been a little hectic recently. Thanks for understanding. The month of July is quickly coming to an end, so if you haven’t picked up all the July group gifts now is the time! This pretty face is the July group gift at WoW Skins. Also, I wanted to share with you some cute FREE gifts from a shop called EmilyC.

The July group gift at WoW Skins is a generous one. It includes the “Katty” skin in 6 tones with system layers and an Omega applier for each. I was able to use the single Omega applier while wearing my Omega Relay for Maitreya and Catwa to apply the skin to my Maitreya body and my Catwa head at the same time. This means that the Omega applier should work for all Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads as long as you also wear the appropriate Omega relay. There is a one time join fee of 399 lindens, however upon joining you’ll be able to pick up the July group gift along with every previous group gift. Just remember to wear your group tag!

Next, this cute argyle print dress and the platform sandals are just two of several group gifts available at EmilyC. This was a new-to-me shop and they had so many FREE gifts, I thought I’d share my favorites with you. This dress is really cute on, and comes in several fitted sizes. Named the Kaja dress, this gift includes a classic fitmesh size, an Ebody size, Maitreya size, a TMP size, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes. The platform sandals come with a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. With all the size options, there should be one that fits most bodies.
EmilyC 2 If pink is your color, these jeans are for you! Also a FREE group gift at EmilyC, these jeans come in standard mesh and fitmesh sizes, a Slink Physique fit, Slink Hourglass fit, a Maitreya fit, and a Belleza fit. Again, there are tons of size options, even more than with the dress, so honestly they should fit just about anyone. Plus, I think they are pretty cute with just a plain white tee. Lastly, I saw the pink jeans at EmilyC and had to pick up the FREE pink shoes as well! Like the other gift shoes, these platform heels come in TMP, Maitreya, and Slink sizes. As I mentioned previously these cute gifts are just a few of the several gifts available at EmilyC, and the group is FREE to join!

Lastly, I also want to point out that I am wearing the same FREE group gift skin from WoW Skins in both photo sets. I’m also wearing the same mesh head, and using the exact same windlight settings. I think it’s fun to see how slightly different a skin tone can look just by changing from a darker hair color to a lighter one.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Peace Love and Tie-Dye

Petite Empire Hello again Fab Free’rs and as always, thank you for stopping by! I’m excited to share with you some lovely group gifts for the month of July from some of my personal favorite designers. Starting top to bottom, there is this lovely hair with matching hair flowers from NSP Florals, a beautifully playful jumper from Petite Mort, and some killer shoes from Empire. I’m really not sure what style this collective look falls into, it’s a little bit boho, a little bit pin-up, and maybe even some glam rock thrown in. As if 3 fabulous group gifts were not enough, I also want to show you this gorgeous Catwa applier gacha from Essences. Whatever you want to call this look, I love it, and I hope you do also!
Floral Tie-dye EmpireI have to say I am loving the hairstyles NSP Florals has been releasing here and there. This style is a cute pulled back look with a little bun at the nape of the neck. I really should have taken a photo of the back of this hairstyle. I think this pretty hairdo is just styled enough to be worn with something formal, yet simple enough to be worn with an every-day look. The optional hair flowers are a gorgeous bonus. I love the amazing details in these darling little flowers. This hairstyle from NSP Florals is the FREE July group gift. The NSP Florals Updates group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however all the gifts are amazing, and you’re gonna want to know when new things come out anyway.

I am never not impressed with the items that come from Petite Mort. The July group gift is among my favorites of all the gifts from this awesome store. This playful tie-dyed romper/jumper/one piece whatever you want to call it, is so cute on I don’t want to take it off. This FREE group gift from Petite Mort comes in several mesh sizes including fit mesh and body specific sizes. I think my favorite part of this one-piece are the little bows at the hips! The Petite Mort in-world group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this gift or future ones!

Empire has quickly become a favorite store of mine, though Empire is relatively new in the realm of Second Life, their items are always detailed and skillfully made. These knee-high strappy heels are the July group gift at Empire. These seriously gorgeous shoes come with a group exclusive color hud that allows you to change various parts of the shoes between this “blueberry” purple shade, and this deep cherry shade. I decided to mix it up a little and make the shoes have a bit of both colors. Oh, and you also get to pick from the standard options as to what color the sole of the shoe is. Also, the gift includes a pair of shoes to fit the Lara body/feet, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. To get this FREE group gift, simply join the Empire group and click the gift vendor. You’ll find the Empire VIP group gifts waiting for you next to the lucky boards. There is a one time join fee for the Empire VIP group of 499 lindens, however the gifts are always exclusive colors, and so far I’ve never been disappointed!

Finally, how beautiful is this Catwa head applier skin from Essences?! One of my favorite gacha items are mesh head appliers. You’ll find the Corrie applier by Essences at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative. This pretty face is just 75 lindens per play with 10 commons, and 2 rares. Each one comes in a specific skin tone and makeup indicated, and works with Catwa mesh heads only.  Pru is wearing the number 7 common version of Corrie, however all the appliers, commons and rares are absolutely beautiful. I’ll include a copy of the gacha key below, ’cause you gotta see these!

Here are the details, happy gifting and gacha-ing!
