I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

Face ItFace It

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. As I’m sure you’ve noticed there have been quite a few new additions to our Fab Free group gift list. One of the more recent gifts is this makeup inspired tank top from Zendra. I think the pop art style graphic is seriously cute. Fair warning however, the sides of this top are really low cut. Unless you wear something under this fun FREE top from Zendra, you might be showing a generous amount of side-boob. The top is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t joined the Fab Free in world group yet, you should! It is always FREE to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (XS -L)

I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

As far as I am concerned, sunglasses are like lipstick, and shoes. You can never have too many. These super cool shades are a FREE Nessmarket group gift at HEC, also known as Hot Elegant Clothing. You might recall my previous blog posts with other sunglasses gifts from HEC here, and here. These particular sunnies are able to be custom colored via a very detailed color hud. You can change each individual part of the glasses, and you can adjust things like opacity, glow, and brightness. If the glasses Pru has on seem a little big, there’s a smaller version included in the gift. The Nessmarket group is FREE to join. Just head over to HEC, join the Nessmarket group (group joiner near the gift) and snag your FREE gift.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pretty as Ribbon Candy

Bright and Sweet Like Ribbon Candy

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  While shopping on the Marketplace at the Believe shop, Ripley and I discovered this bright and cheerful fitted dance top for only 10L, and I wanted to quickly share it with you before I head outside to tackle the dreaded y-a-r-d-w-o-r-k before it gets too hot.  Fortunately, the sky is overcast and the high temperature is expected to be only in the nineties … so I’d better take advantage of the respite from heat while I can!

Pastel Stripes

I just love the stripes of color on this cropped shirt!  The pattern reminds me of the ribbon candy my mother used to get during the holidays.  With a playful, asymmetrical hem line, slender shoulder straps and pastel colors, this little number is just so happy and fun!  The fitted mesh top comes in XS – M and L sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to get a perfect fit.  Although I bought it a couple of days ago, the shirt description says the price is only for 24 hours, so if you’d like to scoop up this bargain for yourself, I’d suggest doing so quickly.

The pupster and I are off to pull weeds and pick up seed pods – oh the ever-fun life of a blogger!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Through Heart Shaped Glasses

Holes in My Heart
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’m back with some fun five-linden hunt gifts from the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt. There are so many cute quality gifts on this hunt. The hunt ends September 30th. For now I picked a few of the gifts to share with you. I hope you like these 5 linden HSGH prizes as much as I do!

There’s a Hole in My Heart

First, let’s talk about how cute this chair from The Artist Shed is! It definitely has an eclectic up-cycled feel. I love the way it looks just sitting in my living room. This 5 linden HSGH prize has a single pose (not shown) and is copy so you can set out more than one.

*Hint – A few shades of grey

So Emotional
Through Heart-shaped Lenses

If you somehow missed Astrid’s post with these too-cute glasses by Kotte, you should definitely check it out here. These detailed glasses with their heart-shaped lenses are the HSGH prize at Kotte. Like all the HSGH prizes, these are just 5 lindens. They also come with a hud that lets you change part of the frames, you can choose gold or silver. The glasses also have resize scripts for easy fitting.

*Hint – That blue is getting me high and making me low.

Is My Skeleton Showing?

I love this corset by The Little Bat. It’s perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Yes, I said season. lol Really, I’d wear this corset year-round. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud that gives you 12 color options for the skeleton graphic. Again, this awesome HSGH prize from The Little Bat is just 5 lindens.

*Hint – I love you so much you must kill me now…

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (XS -L)

Studded Flats

Just like the little black dresses, little black flats are a wardrobe staple. These cute flats by Lindy Modern & Retro just have a bit more attitude than most! They are just half of the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt prize at Lindy Modern & Retro. The HSGH prize includes the flats shown, and a matching pair of boots meant for classic system avatar feet. These detailed mesh flats come in 2 sizes.

*Hint – ALETA  bit of Marilyn goes a long way.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya

The Damsel in Denim

Walk With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  There is something about taking a long walk with a canine friend that just makes the stress melt away.  Although I don’t live in a rural area any more, and have to get my dose of country from SL, I still cherish walking with my faithful pal by my side.  I’m sure Ripley enjoys it just as much as I do since he is alone during the day with only the cats for company.

Perfect Attire for an Early Evening Stroll

My skinny jeans are the latest Fab Free group gift from Tiar.  With a snug, curve-hugging fit, realistic wrinkled texture near the knees, and rolled cuffs, these pants are just right for a casual outfit.  Although I love to dress up, I am most at home in faded, comfy denim, both in RL and in SL.  This free gift includes sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies.  To scoop this goody up for yourself, simply head on over to Tiar, then use the teleport board at the landing area to travel to the Midnight Mania area where the gifts section is located.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Dotted With Stars

The adorable side-knotted crop top I am sporting today is part of a package offered by No Cabide on the Marketplace for only 49L.  The Alessandra set contains a pair of denim shorts (not worn), my summery top, and a texture change HUD for the shirt with 15 various options, including both solids and prints.  I opted for a medium blue sprinkled with golden stars, which I felt coordinated well with the hue of my jeans.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Shorts and top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for both
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

Ripley is ready and raring to go for a game of fetch-the-stick, so we’re going to have a little exercise session before we head on home.  I bet the cats will appreciate a tired pup who’s ready to nap all day tomorrow.  Sometimes that boy can get a little too rambunctious… Until my next post, happy shopping!

So Long to Summer

So Long to Summer

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I enjoyed our extra day off today, and spent quite a bit of time just meandering around the grid. When I was a girl growing up, I had bittersweet feelings about Labor Day.  I relished the three day weekend, but was always sad to see the end of summer.  Now that I live in the desert, the thought of summer heat departing is something I look forward to.  Isn’t it funny how our perspective changes with the passing of time?

Falling Leaves and Long Sleeves

My laced crop top is perfect for those warm early fall days that end with a slight chill as the sun sets.  Loose fitting long sleeves, which are easy to roll up if need be, will keep my arms warm, while the short hem will allow my tummy to soak up some sun.  I really like the criss-crossed straps that weave through large, brass-colored eyelets.    The asymmetrical shoulders add a touch of whimsy to the black pullover, which is the free September gift for members of the Rir Life Design group.  Although there is a teensy 10L join fee, this adorable top is well worth it!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus

Well, it’s back to the grindstone for me tomorrow, and back to his guard dog duties for the pupster.  At least it is only a four-day work week.  🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping to you!

Evil Ways

Evil Ways
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. So today I’ve been in a bit of a mood, no real reason, just one of those days. Luckily I was able to channel a little moodiness into the photos I took for this post. I think it worked out well! On a side note, I think I need to add more cute short hairstyles to my inventory. For this post I’m excited to share with you this pretty dress from Entice, and a recent group gift from Asteroid Box.

The Dress

This gorgeous dress is the latest Fab Free exclusive gift at Entice. You may recall Love’s recent announcement post about the new Fabulously Free in SL FREE group gift out at Entice. If not, you can take a look here.  It comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a texture change hud with 3 options. This gold version Pru is wearing is my favorite, however all 3 are really beautiful. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. The Fabulously Free in SL group is always FREE to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (L, M, S, XS, XXS)

Gilded Lips

Honestly, I’ve been eyeing this FREE makeup applier gift from Asteroid Box for a few days now. The subtle gold line down the middle of the bottom lip is so pretty. I think it looks both delicate and fierce. One quick observation, because the gold is a pale tone, the applier shows up best with darker lip tones. I originally tried this gold lip line while wearing a very pale skin tone and while the gold could be seen, it was not very noticeable. The Asteroid Box group is FREE to join, and there are a few other cute gifts also available.

Applier Included: Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Late Summer Stroll

Summer Memories

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  I sure hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  Ripley and I paused on our late summer walk to snap a quick picture of an adorable floral tank that is a free August gift for Third Life group members from Fax.  With a soft, almost vintage print, halter style neckline, and delicately criss-crossed straps in the back, this top made a welcome addition to my wardrobe.  It paired beautifully with denim shorts for a casual outfit, but I think it would also be lovely with a skirt or a pair of capris.  To scoop up this shirt for yourself, simply activate the Third Life group tag (if you’re not already a member, there is a 10L join fee), teleport over to the Fax shop, and click the vendor. The gift includes versions for a variety of mesh bodies, as well as fit mesh and an alpha layer, so it is bound to fit most avatars.  Since it is quite close to the end of the month, and I’m not sure how long this top will be available, I’d recommend making the journey as soon as possible if you’d like to claim your very own copy.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars

With the sun setting in the distance, the pupster and I had better scurry on home before nightfall.  I didn’t bring my flashlight, and he tends to get a bit terrified over protective when evening falls and twigs go “snap” in the dark.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
