Hey FabFree! I’m feeling very mellow today, very much a wander in the meadows following the butterflies sort of feeling. Maybe it’s the beautiful SIM. Maybe it’s time of year. It could be the beautiful BoHo blouse and skirt I found over at the Witchwood Petite Mort Spring BoHo Hunt!

I do love it when two of my favorite designers team up for one of their awesome Hunts and sales! The Spring Hunt is accompanied this year by a huge sale in both stores. You can get 50% off the entire store until May 7! This does exclude Gachas and New items but it still leaves a ton of great bargains! 

The Hunt is happening between the stores and you can pick up a notecard at the landing point with clues and info and a cute little rose basket for free. Each item on the hunt is priced between 10L to 20L. I have never been disappointed with anything I ever got from Oubliette or Petite Mort and these Hunt items are no different. The details, textures and build are all perfect!  So don’t let anything stop you from loading up on these gorgeous spring clothes!  The Hunt and sale run until May 2 so don’t delay.

Spring, Do Your Thing

Spring, Do Your Thing

It’s usually around this time of year that I start grumbling about the fact that it’s not spring-like enough for me yet.  My part of the world tends to skip right over the pleasant part of blossoms and warm winds and whatever other things they try to tell you about in poems and books.  We get this greyish muddy season until May when things finally explode with life.  So, as per usual, I’m off to the fairer climes of SL to get in my Springtime cavorting.

Sounds Tasty

Pink Cream Pie has a new group gift for their members right now.  It’s this cute criss-crossed tank top that’s calling out Spring to “do it’s thing”.  And I couldn’t agree more!  To get yours, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L and then click on the vendor in the group gift area upstairs.  There are lots of nice gifts and new ones monthly, so totally worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

The Way it Goes

Mosquito’s Way (always one of my faves) also has a new group gift out, and they’re just so pretty I can hardly handle it.  These sweet flower-adorned pumps will have you ready for Spring in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.  You can get yours by joining the Mosquito’s Way group for 50L and then clicking on the vendor by the front desk.  There are a bunch of other awesome gifts too near the front doors.  These pretty heels come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Come on Spring!  GEEZ!

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun

Hello hello, FabReaders! I’m still enjoying the Spring and everything it brings. Of course, it’s easier to say that here on the Grid where all these beautiful flowers and trees don’t make pollen! In real life, we may have the windows open but we’re also starting to sniffle a lot.

Spring also brings the need for some fresh new clothes for our fresh new season. Happily, I found what must be the perfect little dress for Spring at one of my absolute favorite designers: Poeme. This is the “Check Me Out” mini from Poeme and you can add this beauty to your closet for free. “Check Me Out” is the current gift for our fantastic FabFree Group members. So you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag. Oh, and of course, the FabFree Group is free to join.  While you’re at Poeme, ‘check’ out all the other group gifts and lucky boards and cool stuff too!

She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in Beauty
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

Quiet as a Mouse

I thought I’d start my day off with a bit of Lord Byron.  Always one of my fave poems, though perhaps a bit self-aggrandizing today!  I’ll throw aside all my pomp and circumstance for the moment and get down to the freebies!  This loose and lovely boho dress is the latest group gift over at Mouse.  Something about the sleeves really made me feel all “wander lonely as a cloud”, so I headed off to the nearest field to twirl a bit.  The Mouse group is free to join, making this pretty dress entirely free.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

  • Hourglass

A Cup of Cheer

A Cup of Cheer

There’s nothing that makes me feel nostalgic and homey quite like a cup of hot chocolate.  There’s something about it that brings me back in time to snow days, and special Christmas gatherings where magic seems to permeate the air.

Elle est Belle

Belle Époque have a new group gift out that is perfect for all those inworld gatherings to celebrate the season.  Aren’t we lucky as residents of Second Life to be able to gather safely with friends?  To get this pretty and classic dress (which comes with a huuuuge HUD to change the colour), just join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  You’ll find a bunch of other really nice gifts there too!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Heel!

I love these cute little booties by La Perla.  The small details on them really make them special (I love those little heart-shaped buttons!).  The La Perla group costs only 1L to join and you’ll find a full wall of nice gifts (go upstairs to find it!) to pick up.  There are also several dollarbies on the gift wall too!  These boots come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Well, that’s Novel!

Santa Inc. is still going strong, and they have some really fun items.  As a quick reminder, if you spend more than 800L at the event, you’ll gain access to their fun surprise boxes.  Being the avid freebie hunter that I am, I aimed for something a little more budget friendly and saw that they have a free group gift as well!  This cute mug had me feeling warm and cuddly already!  The Novel Events group is free to join, making this cup of cheer totally free.

Here’s to you, dear readers!

It’s Halloween!  I’m just having a little breather before tonight’s festivities.  You can’t ever spend too much time in the golden hued woods, if you ask me!

Ooh, Witchy Woman

It’s time for a new group gift from Petite Mort!  This cute cropped tee is absolutely awesome, and I’ll probably wear it forever.  It’s completely free when you join the Petite Mort group for free.  You’ll also find a new gift on the Oubliette side of the sim too, so do head over there and check out their gifts.  When you join the group, you also gain access to the lucky boards.  I got these sweet cropped jeans by waiting for my letter to come up, and I think they match the top rather perfectly!

Falling For Fall

Falling for Fall

It feels a bit chilly out, doesn’t it?  That slight pleasant nippiness to the air isn’t necessarily something to dislike, in fact it can be quite nice!  To me, Fall is always a time of renewal, of beginnings, and of change.  The trees reminding us all that letting go of the old really can be beautiful!

It’s the Kustom

Yay!  It’s time again for my favourite event, Kustom9!  I always find things I must have at this event, and this month is going to be even awesomer than usual since it’s their anniversary!  7 years old is certainly something to celebrate, and in the customary SL way – the giving of gifts – it is something I can really get behind.  Every booth (or almost every!) has a gift for members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group.  I picked up this fun sweater from Spirit (the sleeves are actually tied up behind my back…lol!) , which comes with an HUD that allows you to customize the colours of the sleeves and main panel, as well as this lovely pair of boots from Ison.  The boots come with an HUD to change up the colours as well and they are sized for Freya, Legacy and Maitreya.

Sweater Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink Original

If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – Kustom9 is running until November 10th.  There’s also a Cam Sim to visit in case you can’t get into the Main Sim right away.

Enjoy!

It’s All Perfect

It's All Perfect

Oof!  What a day, FabFree!  I’m tired, grumpy and slightly rumpled.  Well, very rumpled.  I’m coming inworld where my clothes are always perfect, my hair is never out of place (unless I want it to be) and my eyeliner is always pointed upward in a perfect wing.  There’s something comforting about being able to control our surroundings so specifically in SL when everything is topsy-turvy in RL!

Another Anniversary!

Today, we’re celebrating Tachinni’s 2nd Birthday with a super awesome group gift of 350L in store credit!  To get this awesome gift, join the Tachinni group for 15L, and then click on the vendor by the front desk.  With my 350L, I chose the Grace Shirt and Skirt (which really called to me from across the store (figuratively, of course…).  It even left me with another 150L to spend as everything in the store is currently 50% off!  The only hard part with this group gift is what to choose!

Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way

Ramblin’ On

I couldn’t help but quote a bit of Led Zeppelin at you.  When Autumn comes around, that song always has me feeling all the feels!  Anyway, there’s maaaaassive news from Mangula today, and that is that they’ve got 20 free gift boxes lying around the store for everyone to pick up!  No group join required, just click on the boxes scattered around the shop.  You’ll also find that each box doesn’t just contain one gift, they each contain multiple, and that’s hella generous!  I fell in love with the contents of box #6, which is this awesome corseted dress.  I don’t know how long this will be going on for, as it is listed as “limited time only” so get your patoot over there!

Update:  Looks like you have to hit the subscrib-o-matic in order to pick up the gifts!  It’s located over the front desk and is free to join!

Climb Every Mountain

Climb Every Mountain

One of the things I’m best at is wearing nonsensical footwear for physical activity.  This talent extends to my RL, I’m sure you’ll all be thrilled to hear.  So today, I’m posing nimbly like a goat in the wilds and hoping that a gust of wind isn’t planning on knocking me down any time soon!

What, More?

LSR is really spoiling us these days with yet another group gift.  The leggings and top I’ve got on are their September group gift, and it gives me random flamenco dancer vibes.  I don’t know why, because there is really nothing of the flamenco about it, except a few frills on the arms.  Ok, I’m rambling again.  Anyway, you can get this super cute outfit by joining their group for 99L.  There are loads of other gifts and lucky boards, making this join fee super worth it.
