If you really wanna know where you can find me, I’ll be unwinding down in the islands

FabFree: If you really wanna know where you can find me, I’ll be unwinding down in the islands (1 of 2 - Photo)
Hey there Fabulouses!  I have news today of a new free bento dance animation at Move! Animations.  I was inspired by this dance to spend some time in the sand at Kanaloa Surf Beach, admiring the waves.  I hope you enjoy the video as much as I had fun making it :).  It’s a quick video at just over a minute, so it won’t take up too much of your day!

Dance along with me!

At Move! Animations, you’ll find the Julia 27 Bento Dance for FREE.  You’ll find a few dance pads with a sign above it and all you need to do is touch the sign!  No need to be in the group (unless you want to, of course!!).  The Julia 27 Bento Dance is almost 40 seconds long and is fun, sexy and chill.

Story of My Life


Awkward

Hey There Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. I feel like the sign board Pru is holding says what could be the title to Pru’s autobiography. lol Really, this sign board by Le Poppycock with the cheeky saying is one of many free gifts at The Liaison Collaborative. The current round of TLC is an anniversary round so there are several gifts either at the vendor booths or in the center of the event on little carts. In addition to this gift by Le Poppycock, Pru is wearing the free TLC gift by Canimal. Both gifts require the free-to-join TLC group tag.

The Sign Board – This free gift at TLC by Le Poppycock comes with the pose needed to hold this fun prop. The board itself has several sayings, some a bit cheeky like this one, and some not. It’s great for photos, and I would even use it as décor.

The Romper – Also a free gift at TLC, this romper by Canimal is a Maitreya fit (I believe). It comes on it’s own, unboxed. To get your copy of this gift and all the others, be sure to join the Liaison Collaborative group and wear the tag before clicking the gift boxes.

Here are the details:

Lip Gloss – Lisa Walker – L.W BUBBLEGUM GLOSS (CATWA) LIPSTICK 0.1

When your lucky letter comes up, you can win the Mustard Sweetheart Top in one board and the Stonewash Button Denim Skirt in another.  These two items look super cute together and are perfect for the upcoming warm spring weather!

A Gift From a Dove

Stand Tall

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  The pupster and I are popping in quickly to share this maxi skirt outfit that I picked up as a free group gift over at The Free Dove.  Way back when I was new to SL, someone introduced me to this marvelous shop, where I began my love affair with SL fashion.  Every so often, I return to check out the new arrivals, and this visit did not disappoint!  I came away with a swagger in my step and several new additions to my inventory.

She Has a Gypsy Soul

The Gypsy Swagger Outfit from Eclectique features a halter style top paired with a maxi skirt with a definite Bohemian vibe.  I love the deep, rich color scheme of this gift!  The two pieces can be worn separately, which adds to the versatility of the outfit.  The skirt features a darker waist panel with a drawstring bow hanging down, and a patterned fabric which ends in a slightly flared hemline.  The solid wine colored top echoes the predominant hue from the skirt.  You can pick up this boho-styled set for free, just for being a member of the Free Dove group.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Every time you go away

FabFree: Every time you go away

Hi there FabFree Readers!  Vision has a sexy new group gift for their VIPs to enjoy and I’ll tell you about it in this post.

Norah

The latest group gift at Vision is Norah, which is the vixeny little dress you see me wearing.  It features a very short skirt with a low back, and a bow at the back.  Norah comes with 30 colour options and you also have the option to change the colour of the outline and the attached panties.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

About the Vision Groups

There are actually two inworld groups for Vision… One is for VIPs, which is the group you’ll need to be in to gain access to the group gifts on the wall in the VIP area.  This group will set you back 250L, and if the group gifts aren’t enough to entice you to join, maybe it will help that it will also allow you to participate in the awesome lucky board prizes they have up too.  There is also a free group for updates, but you can’t get the gifts from that one.  Make sure you’re in the right group!

The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

Let’s Go – Summer is Waiting!

Summer is Waiting

Hello there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of done with winter and its viruses!  Ripley and I decided to make a break for summer.  We’ve got the car packed up, I’m wearing a brand new outfit that I picked up for free, and the pupster has his favorite fetch toys stowed away right next to the box of Ripley Snacks.  There’s plenty of room if you want to join us.  Hop on in!

She’s a Wild Child

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL Group, you can pick up my entire outfit for free over at the Alias! shop.  Featuring a tie dye halter top, cut off denim jeans shorts with a narrow suede belt, and cute tip toe sandals, Wild Child is ideal for an impromptu visit to summer.  The generous designer tucked a color change HUD for the shirt and the heels into the gift box, which gives you the choice between 12 different color schemes.  As you can see, the shoes and top coordinate beautifully together!  Besides the fact that the entire ensemble is completely free, the best part is that it includes versions for classic avatars as well as for mesh bodies!  There is a note inside the folder which explains that if you have an Ebody or Tonic mesh body, the outfit may or may not fit your avatar depending on your shape and the alpha included with your mesh body.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Top – Standard Size in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shorts – Fitmesh Classic XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

I almost forgot my sunscreen!  We’re going to make a pit stop on the way to grab some SPF50, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks for the road.  We’ll be leaving soon, so don’t delay if you’re up for a trip, too.  Until next time, bye bye winter colds and flu…. I am SO over you!!

Ringed in Roses

Ringed in Roses

After a long weekend of busy and running around, I am happy to get back on the Grid for some relaxation.  So I headed straight to my new favorite place to wander: Soul2Souls Highlands.

Roses for days

Luckily I had a brand new outfit to wander about in. I especially pleased with my new jeans. These are the ‘high waisted boot cut jeans’ from the Sissy Bar. These are the 1L Hunt prize for the New Years Hunt running until January 31. Just find the little red question mark somewhere in the store and they can be yours too!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • eBody
  • SLink
  • TMP

Staying Cozy

I needed a nice cozy top to go wandering, these Highlands are still pretty chilly, ya know. So I made a stop on the marketplace to find the perfect new sweater. And !gO! was my “Go -to”. This is the ‘Balbina’ sweater and it’s a 1L gift from !gO! on the marketplace. There are several great 1L gifts on !gO!’s page so check those out too.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh XXS-L

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy hunting!
