Cute N’ Nerdy

Cute N' Nerdy

Bibliophile –
noun
A person who collects or has a great love of books.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I was one of those kids that spent way too much time afraid of being called a nerd. I’d hide my love of books, fantasy, and anything that might label me as geeky, nerdy, or dorky. The funny thing is, all that hiding never gained me any popularity either. Now that I’ve fully embraced my nerdiness it’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself! Alongside my nerdy adoration of books I love fashion and can get especially geeky about a great bargain.

TRS Designs

For this look I picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift dress at TRS Designs. I have to say this dress is even cuter on than it is in photos. I really wish I’d picked this one up sooner. It has the loose fit of a t-shirt dress, with the added details of leather-like straps that come together in a Y shape in the back. I’m also loving the wine red and slate grey tie-dye. To get yours simply head over to TRS Designs and purchase the dress for zero linden from the Stay at Home Club vendor.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Frey, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Standard Mesh + Alpha (xxs – L)

DAPPA

I also don’t think it’s a secret that I love tattoos. DAPPA has been a recent favorite tattoo shop of mine. This heavily detailed upper body tattoo is the newest group gift at DAPPA and I’m geeking out about how great it looks. It’s a unisex tattoo with several appliers and BOM layers each with the choice of a fresh or faded look. The DAPPA group is free to join, and there are several male/female/unisex free group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Signature, BOM Layers

DAPPA - Akuma Tattoo. FREE GIFT!

BND

Last, but not at all least, no cute nerd girl look would be complete without glasses. I love these round specs by BND. They are just 5 linden on the Marketplace. With the glasses you get a texture change hud with options for the frames and lenses. There’s also a backup pair of glasses just in case you need them. Also, they can be manually resized which I really like.

I hope you enjoy these freebies and cheapies, happy shopping Fab Free, and always let your true self shine!

Losing My Zed

LOSING MY ZED- Prudence Rexroth

Down the hatch in one quick swallow! Hi Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m sure you’re curious as to why I am about to swallow this cute pink letter z. It’s all because of Kiddo Oh, the owner/creator of Dead Doll formerly Dead Dollz. You may have heard that in June the iconic brand Dead Dollz was rebranded and became Dead Doll. In celebration there is a super cute freebie that is intended to be worn for the Dead Doll photo contest.

What’s the contest? It is intended to be a photo depiction of how “Dead Dollz” might have lost their “z” and became Dead Doll. There are some really incredible prizes for this contest and it is free to enter. First prize is 10,000 linden, and 5,000 in store credit to spend at Dead Doll! There is no group requirement to pick up the free contest merchandise at the Dead Doll store. You’ll find it sitting on the counter near the contest information sign. The deadline is July 15th, so hurry if you want to enter, and don’t forget to check the notecard included in the package for all contest rules and information.

The free Dead Doll photo contest merchandise package comes with a knotted logo tee, a coffee to go with bento hold pose (not pictured), and a re-sizeable letter z. Good Luck, and enjoy the freebies!

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Under the Willows

Under the Willows

I guess I’m feeling my wild elf side tonight. I don’t want to be around people… I just want to find a quiet stream and talk to the willow trees. Listen to the water and the wind. Maybe it’s just that time of summer.

Midsummer

Midsummer means the Midsummer Enchantment event and Hunt is going full swing. And if you haven’t checked this one out yet don’t delay and miss it. The SIM is beautifully decorated with witchy fantasy fare and there are tons of booths to pick from. The Hunt isn’t to be missed either. Just search out the purple feathered masks hidden all over for some lovely prizes like this one from Paper Moon. This is the Gelsey Halter Daffodil and it can be yours for some hunting and 5L. Not a bad price for such a cute little Boho top. It comes in two versions a “fresh” one which I’m wearing and a softly faded version. Both are beautiful.

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Dragon
  • eBody
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Toes in the Sand

With My Toes in the Sand

I don’t know about anyone else, but my Second Life summer is shaping up extremely nicely. As everyone knows by now I’ve been hitting the beach every chance I get. Thanks to Paper.Sparrow’s new Dog Days Hunt, I get to look extra cute while keeping my toes in the sand.

The Dog Days Hunt is an in-store hunt at Paper.Sparrow. There are 18 total hunt prizes at 25 lindens each. The hunt prizes include several tops, skirts, shorts, a dress, swimwear, shoes, and sunglasses. I paired together the top to the grey floral bikini with the blue floral Jesse shorts, and the tropical sunglasses v1. The Dog Days Hunt at Paper.Sparrow will last from now through the end of July. Happy Hunting!

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.

Live Your Best Life


Living Our Best Life

I think I’m determined to visit every seaside spot on the grid. To say I am afflicted with wanderlust would be an understatement. This time Blue discovered a beautiful little slice of paradise where we could spend the days playing in the water and the evenings relaxing deckside watching the sun go down.

In preparation for a our excursion we picked up a few of the many free group gifts at Amias. These plush towels are an absolutely must-have. They come in a his and hers version and include a texture hud with quite a few choices to pick from. They are free with the Amias group tag. Coincidentally the Amias group is also free to join. Blue happens to be wearing another of the free group gifts at Amias. His leather bracelet also comes in male and female sizes, and has a color change hud. It’s always cool to find freebies that include options for male and female avatars. Have fun everyone!

Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

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

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

No more yielding than a dream

All a Dream

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear;
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

 

It was all a dream upon Midsummer’s Night

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt, that is. First my new gown. I am becoming a huge fan of Ari – Pari. Honestly, when I saw this designer was doing the Hunt I may have actually squeaked with a happy. For just 3L and a little hunting you get the beautiful gown with a HUD for eight colors of fabric and six metals for the belt. It’s just gorgeous.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My Oberon

Gabriel is my Oberon in the “Oberon Set” from Secrets of Gaia. This is also part of the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt for only 3L. The set also included two sets of horns (Not shown)
