Guilty Pleasures

Guilty Pleasure

Hello Fab Free! If you’ve ever seen the movie Ocean’s Eleven you’re familiar with Brad Pitt’s character in the film and the fact that he always had snacks. I find that very relatable. lol Thankfully Second Life makes it so easy to be indulgent. Today I got to indulge my fondness for food, and fashion.

Le Poppycock

This delicious looking pink drink and the corresponding bento pose are one of the many gachas from the “Guilty Pleasures” gacha set by Le Poppycock currently featured at The Pose Fair. These gacha poses are all various sweets and savory treats that I couldn’t resist spending a few lindens on. This Le Poppycock gacha is just 69 lindens per play, and since they are transferrable you can trade them. The Pose Fair is open until September 28th. Also, don’t forget there are free Pose Fair group gifts!
New at Pose Fair!

Afrotay

Now for the fashion! This cute red dress is a free group gift by Afrotay. I couldn’t resist the stylized snake graphic. I think it’s so interesting and unique. I also really like the way the shoulder straps come together in the back, and I am wishing I’d taken a photo of it to share with you. The dress comes in a pretty bright yellow color as well as this vibrant red. The Afrotay group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Wake me up

FabFree Post: Wake me up

Wake me up inside

And after typing out “wake me up inside” all I can think about is “wake me up when September ends” *you are so welcome* because I am super excited for all the pretty fall colors mixed with the end of summer green! Fall has to be my second favorite season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pie, Freshly Baked Cookies, Festivals, Falling Leaves, and so much more puts this season on top just under Spring. The days become shorter, the nights become colder, snuggling under a blanket watching movies, warm fuzzy socks.. all highlights of a typical Bunnie Fall.

Early last week BackBone gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming free group gift, I had to very patiently wait until it was released, and let me tell you, this GLORIOUS Warrior is my new favorite decor item, hands down! The detail on the statue alone made my jaw hit the floor. I know L$500 is a hit but if you think about all the past free group gifts you can snag while there it makes the cost small in comparison. It comes with the ability to turn the water sounds up or down, which is amazing because I love the sound sometimes but when I’m working it could be slightly distracting to me.
Then again that could just be a “me” thing.

Belle Epoque has put out a very inspiring dress for 25LT Sale (sale prices only good for Tuesday 9/15) coming in 8 colors for L$25 each with options for short and long. Both dress styles of the dress are classic and could be used for RP or even a new age shot because we all know vintage looks come back over and over again 🙂 So soon we will all be using standard avatars again ❤ JK!

Fits:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

Pink Perfection!

Pink Perfection

Oh my Stars, FabFree! have you been to UBER yet? SO.MANY.GIFTS! I actually had a hard time deciding which cute thing to show off. I know, I know it’s a great problem to have. Then I opened the gifts from Mimikri and Osmia and I knew what I was blogging. I mean, how could I resist a pink bikini with studs???

Itsy Bitsy

Hooleee Crow! Would you look at this itsy bitsy bikini? Pink and tiny and studs, be still my heart. This is the ‘Celeste Bikini’ from Mimikri and it’s free at Uber. I don’t have a whole lot of items from Mimikri in my closet but man, I gotta change that. This little whisper of a swim suit is so perfectly done. Every detail is spot on and I am in love. Plus… it’s free!

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLInk – Hourglass, Physique

Up Top

Another super cute free gift at Uber comes from Osmia. This ‘Aria Bucket Hat’ (My people always called this style a ‘boonie hat’) comes with a HUD for choices of cute colors. Doesn’t this pink look like it was just made for the bikini?! Again, it’s really well done and I love it to pieces!

UBER runs until September 22 which is coming faster than ya think, so get over there and load up!

Hello hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs. I hope you’ve been enjoying yours. As for me, it’s been a productive sort of quiet weekend and I’m not at all mad about it. Even more, I’m excited to share with you some pretty summery finds from Dead Doll and Sweet Evil. On a side note, bonus points if you’re familiar with the movie from which I got my blog title, and the relation to the seals.

Dead Doll 

This pretty sarong-like tropical print skirt is a free group gift at Dead Doll. It has a color change hud with several color choices and you can color the skirt and the tie separately. Right now the Dead Doll group has a one-time join fee of 250 linden. I think this cute summer skirt is perfect for dressing up and wearing out or even on it’s own at the beach with a bikini.

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Sweet Evil has a dollarbie gift card worth 250 linden for current group members. The Sweet Evil group is free to join. I have no idea how long this gift card will be available, so definite do not wait to pick it up. With my gift card I picked out this cute halter style top and after using my 250 linden gift card only paid 50 linden for the top. I think it went well with the skirt, and it has a tinting hud so you can tint the shirt to match just about anything with the choice of tinting the main part of the shirt and the straps separately. There are lots of things to choose from at Sweet Evil, including BOM items. Just a note of caution, if you’re at all bothered by bare breasts, you might skip this one. Many of the tops sold at Sweet Evil have breasts playfully exposed.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

We’ll get there fast, then we’ll take it slow

we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow

**humming some old Beach Boys**

Hey FabFree! What’s better at the start of the week than some tropical vibes, a few rum spiked adult beverages and some awesome free gifts? Not much!!

First, a bit of confession, Sweet Willows says this outfit is a mini dress… And usually what the designer says goes. But this little cutie makes me have all the swimsuit feels. But hey, that’s the glory of the Grid… it is what we want it to be. So… anyway. I love this little set. It’s so cute and it’s really really beautifully made. Plus it comes with a HUD to change each piece to one of five color choices.  Oh, one more confession… I did have to edit the picture a bit. The skirt… is really a mini and… well, let’s just say, wear your nicest panties, girls.

Oh, I almost forgot… This adorable set… all free for the lucky members of our own Fabulously Free Group!

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Beleeza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP

OH,  I almost REALLY forgot… When you wear your FabFree Group tag at Sweet Willows… you get 50% OFF the regular price for any item! How’s that for Fabulous?!

Day Off

Fabfree Post: Day off

Day off for Alice

That sneaky little girl Alice conned me into painting some roses, once I agreed to take her paintbrush, a rabbit appeared quickly rushing her to do something by whispering in her ear.  I watched her pop something into her mouth and she quickly shrank to the tiniest little girl I’ve ever seen! I realized I may have picked the short stick on this one…

INKer  Esareme Girl Tattoo has a few tattoos up for L$10 and the one I’m wearing has a vintage pinup girl vibe going on. The date the promotional price is unclear so I would go take a look at them as soon as possible to snag them all! The item comes with Dark, Medium, and Light options so you can get a great mix of how new or old you want the tattoo to look!

Options for Esareme Girl Tattoo

  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • BOM

Popcorn has a free gift out at Down the Rabit Hole which happens to be this cute shirt I’m wearing! Featuring the event name on it along with some iconic silhouettes that give you no other option but to think of Alice and her Wonderland Adventures! You will have a hard time not being late after you visit the event! This is my favorite gift from the entire event so far, comment below what yours is!!

Popcorn’s Mel Top Fits:

  • Alice
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Down the Rabit Hole Event is open until July 21st so be sure to stop by, get the (Free) Evil Bunny Hunts Group and snag the free gift!

Outside of the little shop area at Analog Dog on the beach, there is a bubble, there you will find you can purchase the bubble for L$0 and get the inclosed free hair with no group needed! This is a fantastic find for your wigging out needs! I opted for the Leela Dark Red hair to showcase a deeper color palette for this picture. There are however other colors you for you chose from with their free gifts!

Heyya FabFree. I hope this week is treating you well. If it’s not… well it’s almost the weekend. right?! And if that isn’t enough to put a smile on your face… maybe a quick get away to a tropical beach would do the trick. “But, Juli…” I hear you say. “I have nothing cute to wear to the beach!”  You’re in luck then, my friend! Cause I have the lead on some super cute swimwear for just 1L! Let’s hop to it.

Another day at the beach

Another day at the beach

I’ve had some people ask me, “Why should I join FabFree? It takes up a group slot and everything. Aren’t you just a blog?”  OOOH no. You see when you join FabFree for free, you can go pick up tons of free gifts! For FREE. And seriously, who doesn’t love free?

Off to the beach

On my quest to show off our fabulous FabFree designers, I saw Alias has this super cute top and shorts combo as their FabFree Group gift! I thought it looked perfect for some casual down-time with the pupper playing on the beach. If pink isn’t your thing, the top has a HUD for ten color/patterns! So put on your Group tag and slap that board. Then you can do some casual beach time too!

Blueberries and Cactus

Garden Projects

Hello hello Fab Free! I’ve got some goodies from Blueberry (including store credit!), some cute denim applier shorts by Nerdosaurus, and a Le Poppycock freebie by way of the Pose Fair to share with you today. As always, but especially now, I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and doing well despite all the unpleasantness out in the world. That said, hopefully these free and inexpensive finds make you smile. You know how this works from here, keep reading for details, and peep full credits at the end.

P.S. I even put a few extras in the credits! Have fun Fab Free! 

Blueberry

It’s a good time to be part of the Blueberry in-world group if you’re not already. Caroline gave me the heads up that just a day or two ago they sent out a group gift via notices that is a complete Mega Pack. There’s also a 350 linden store credit available to group members also in a notice sent out today! You guys, that makes the 20 linden join fee worth it worth it worth it!!

The generous Mega Pack gift from Blueberry includes the puffer jacket, and dress with lots of options. Along with several sizes, the jacket and dress can be worn together or separately. If you want to wear both together, wear the jacket in your size and use the detailed customization hud to show the dress. From there you can pick from tons of color options for the dress, jacket, and metal parts. Additionally, there is an option to hide or show panties with a lace option for those as well as the color choices. Reminder, the Blueberry group has a one time join fee of 20 linden. Don’t forget to check the notices!

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

Nerdosaurus 

I personally chose to wear the group gift dress from Blueberry as a shirt and put on a cute pair of denim shorts by Nerdosarus.  I found them for just 10 linden on the Marketplace. For that price especially, these shorts are a steal! The shorts come in 5 denim shades, each in an Omega applier as well as classic system layers.

Le Poppycock

The Pose Fair is a must-go-to shopping stop. There are so many free gifts I can’t even tell you how many, and there are poses for everyone. The Pose Fair group is also free to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift boxes to get your free gift. These cute little cacti are part of the Pose Fair gift by Le Poppycock. This gift includes the cacti and a single bento hold pose.
