FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt Preview – Kaithleen’s

bubble_004

Hey gang, here is another sneak peek at the Fab Free St Pattys Day Hunt for you!  I’m excited as well and to add to Aline’s sentiment, I’m about to lose control, and I think I like it!!  My sneak peek comes to you with one of Kaithleen’s gorgeous prizes!  She’s got five for you in total.  Honestly, I didn’t know which to pick, one is cuter than the other!  But I decided on this cute kimono, it felt so flow-y and springtime.  I paired it up with some cute bubbles from Fluffy Stuff, for a perfect spring day frolic!  I have to say frolicking is one of my favorite words.

This cute Kimono comes in:

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

You also get a choice of solid or sexy see through, and you get a HUD with 20 colors so you can change up the trim color.  🙂

Kaithleen's - FabFree St. Patty's Day Hunt

Don’t forget, this hunt starts the 16th and only runs to the 20th so you don’t want to miss it.  You can find all the info about our hunt HERE, including previews of the prizes which are all 5L and under (with more being added daily).  We have so many amazing designers, many with multiple prizes at each stop!!!  I. am.  BURSTING!!!!!  This is going to be so much fun!  I expect to see all of you there or I am sending that possibly crazy Bond girl from my previous post out to drag your butts to the hunt!  😀

More soon my pretties! (and your little dogs too!)

Rise and Shine Fab Fam!

It’s Sundayyyyyy!  You know what that means!  It means it is #sokawaiisundays!  Woot!  It also means that you only have TODAY to scoop up these deals so no dillying… or dallying!  Y’all just better RUN!

I ran and I scored this adorbs dress from ALTAIR (gosh I love their stuff!), which made me feel like a kawaii snow white!  Of course to match the cute little stars on their dress I had to grab the cute Moon Headband from Just Yaska (ok, so I admit I am a fiend for anything celestial themed… sun, moon, stars… Saturn!  OMG Saturn!!!!  LOL  You know we Fab Free folks can be obsessive right? (who us????) Oh but we do so love what we love!).  Both items are 65L each, so I spent a whopping 130L total for such cuteness.  My oh my!  *fans self* I may just faint!

The dress comes in Maitreya size and includes a choice of cute hairbows (but I opted for the headband for this photo, obv.) and also a shirtless version of the dress which turns it into a cute summer spaghetti strap dress.   The super fab headband is a fatpack and comes with a HUD that has five choices each for the moon and star, the little stars and the headband itself.

There are dozens of goodies for 65L (see the gallery here) and don’t forget the free skin from Velour (which I LOVE and have been using lately with my Lelutka Evo Nova head, including this photo) that is a #sokawaiisundays gift.

See you next time gang, when I won’t be wearing the stars but reaching for them in a sweet group gift!

Starry eyed & Fancy free at home!

Creeper

There’s something mystical and magical about a cemetery from my perspective. Perhaps it’s the palpable stillness, and the haunting quiet. Whatever it is, to me cemeteries feel like the kind of place where anything could happen. The often elegantly carved statues, headstones, and grave markers with their memorial inscriptions give a cemetery an almost romantic ambiance. My macabre fancies aside, I am excited to share some fabulous finds from Paper.Sparrow and Asura with you!
Paper.Sparrow
Did you know that Paper.Sparrow is participating in Spookzilla this year?! What’s Spookzilla you ask? Why a spook-tacular hunt with with prizes from tons of designers from all over the grid. Paper.Sparrow has 9 gifts hidden in the cutest little green ghost. Each gift is just 25 linden, all you have to do is find them! My witchy ruffled dress and batty earrings are both 25 linden prizes by Paper.Sparrow on the Spookzilla hunt. I’ve included a copy of the Paper.Sparrow hunt key below so you can peep all the creepy cute prizes.
Dress Sizes Included:  Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

Asura

My creepy kawaii look would be far from complete without a few of the group gifts from Asura. I love the colors in this tattoo by Asura. It comes in BOM layers and appliers. It also happens to be a free group gift at Asura. Another of the Asura group gifts is this ultra kawaii choker. The little stars are what makes this one for me. The “Counting Stars” choker group gift has resize scripts, and has a color change hud with tons of options for customizing the look so it can go with anything. Asura has a one time join fee of 99 linden.

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin'

“Don’t stop believin’, just hold on to that feelin’…” ~ Journey 

Surely I’m not the only one with a brain full of useless (but totally fun) pop culture information. That said, when I saw this adorable (and free) group gift tee at Reed, I immediately felt like singing the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'” since that’s what the shirt says. The unicorn graphic is also pretty darn cute! Also at Reed are these pretty wristwatches that come in gold, silver (shown), black, and rose. They are free lucky letter board prizes, or you can purchase them all for 75 linden and not have to wait. The group gift shirt, and the Lucky Letter boards will require the Reed group tag, however the group is free to join.

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

On my recent shopping excursion I also picked up some nail polish and eyeshadow from Demicorn. These pretty pastel nail polishes, and my vibrant eyeshadow are two of many group gifts at Demicorn. The Demicorn group is 100 linden to join. The polish has 6 color choices, and the eyeshadow has 5 color combinations to choose from. I have to say I’m very much enjoying these rich colors!

Nail Applier Included – Maitreya Only
Eyeshadow Applier Included – Catwa Only

Happy shopping Fab Free! Now you’ll have to excuse me while I return to my own personal rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin'” while dancing around my living room.

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza Freya

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Gym, Tan, Laundry

Gearing up for the summer I hopped in the car and went to the local tanning salon where I found peaceful bliss in solitude. Wearing this adorable FREE black swimsuit I found from the {Women Only Hunt 6} from American Bazaar I popped in the bed and by the time it was over I felt like I had rested for days. I like to take my time getting out of the room when I’m done and I assume that I took too long because the woman at the front desk came to check on me mid jam to my favorite tune. The embarrassment is real.

The Extra Swimsuit from [AB] is free, and the complete list of shops participating in the hunt are listed HERE and let me say I can’t be happier about the finds!

Fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

There were so many shops on this list that I had to break it up into shifts to go to and find them. So keep an eye out for more fab finds from this amazing hunt!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!


In the Garden


In the Garden

Hi, hello, Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re all well and having a marvelous week so far. For this post I have the cutest little tube top to tell you about. This ruffled tube top with the cat-shaped cutout is a free group gift at G-Shot. It even has stitch whiskers, which I think is extra cute, especially for a sometimes-kitty-girl like me! The G-Shot group is free to join for an undisclosed limited time as well. So don’t wait to pick this one up! This free group gift includes a color change hud for the main fabric of the top and the metal studs with quite a few options for each. It also comes in several mesh sizes. I hope you have fun with this one!
