No Holds Barred Free!

spring air_012

Hello there fab fam!

Ahhh, its a sunny (but very cold! 26F with a wind chill of 15F.  its very windy) March morning! (I suppose it is keeping true to the coming in like a lion part, eh!  Can’t wait for the lamb part!!) I’m getting really antsy for spring y’all.  I’ve already started re-potting and cutting back some of my houseplants (and using some of those cuttings to start new little plants)… I know I am jumping the gun a bit, but I’ve been dying to start for the season and I have terrible self control (part of the reason my inventory is way too big  lol) and so finally just jumped on it!

I’m looking at this photo I did and I’m cold looking at it.  I bet in second life it stays a balmy 70F.  😉  Oh what I wouldn’t give….  alas.

But I digress!  I didn’t come here to chat about the weather with y’all, I came to tell you that I got this stunning outfit for FREE.  Yup, absolutely, totally no holds barred FREE!  Where you ask?  Well The Free Dove, of course!  This sexy little outfit comes from Nandi Style and these really cute (again with the celestial theme, you see that?  lol) moon earrings come from Glint.  Both at The Free Dove.

The dress comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD to change the button on the skirt.  😉

Stay warm gang!  May the cold wind be ever at your back

Reach for the Stars

spring air_020

I felt your eyes upon me and a stirring in my Soul
I watched the current rise and tide turn for another shore…
A river finds it’s ocean, the light brings darkness to its knees
All that we’ve forgotten and all that we were meant to be…
We are like stars, stars in the sky
The darker this night, the brighter we will shine.

Stars – David Newman

Hey Fab Fam!

A little bit of lyrics from one of my favorite songs.  I’ve been in a funk the last week or so, though I am such an introvert, the pandemic is starting to affect me as well.  It’s a tough feeling to explain, like everything, even things I love to do, right now they all just feel like… meh.  You know?  So many friends I talk to are also feeling this way.  Picture dementors closing in, like there is nothing happy in the world, that’s the feeling.  Perhaps I just need a big old pile of chocolate.  (not like I need an excuse for that  lol)  But since I am trying to be good and *not* eat a pile of chocolate, I try to focus on some positive music, songs that just envelop me in love like a big hug, and of course…. keep reaching for the stars!

So for anyone else who is feeling this way, lets all just close in for a big virtual group hug!  Virtual group hug=no covid so we can have as many as we want and need.  Come on, scooch in… don’t be shy… everyone gather round, ok, ready!  BIG GROUP HUG annnnnnnnd SQUEEZE!!!!!!  Ahhhhh doesn’t that feel better?  You are not alone!  Yeah I need to remember this too.

So today gang, as I reach for those stars (Thanks to Fluffy Stuff for providing us with little pastel twinkly stars for our in world), I’m looking fashionable in this very pretty free group gift from Look at Me.  Group is free to join as well which makes this top and pants absolutely free!  This outfit comes in:

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep reaching for those stars fab fam, if we collect enough we can create brighter days!

Rise and Shine Fab Fam!

It’s Sundayyyyyy!  You know what that means!  It means it is #sokawaiisundays!  Woot!  It also means that you only have TODAY to scoop up these deals so no dillying… or dallying!  Y’all just better RUN!

I ran and I scored this adorbs dress from ALTAIR (gosh I love their stuff!), which made me feel like a kawaii snow white!  Of course to match the cute little stars on their dress I had to grab the cute Moon Headband from Just Yaska (ok, so I admit I am a fiend for anything celestial themed… sun, moon, stars… Saturn!  OMG Saturn!!!!  LOL  You know we Fab Free folks can be obsessive right? (who us????) Oh but we do so love what we love!).  Both items are 65L each, so I spent a whopping 130L total for such cuteness.  My oh my!  *fans self* I may just faint!

The dress comes in Maitreya size and includes a choice of cute hairbows (but I opted for the headband for this photo, obv.) and also a shirtless version of the dress which turns it into a cute summer spaghetti strap dress.   The super fab headband is a fatpack and comes with a HUD that has five choices each for the moon and star, the little stars and the headband itself.

There are dozens of goodies for 65L (see the gallery here) and don’t forget the free skin from Velour (which I LOVE and have been using lately with my Lelutka Evo Nova head, including this photo) that is a #sokawaiisundays gift.

See you next time gang, when I won’t be wearing the stars but reaching for them in a sweet group gift!

Starry eyed & Fancy free at home!

Walking on Air!

ldr_009

Hey fab fam!

I’ve been thinking (and that is always dangerous!), wouldn’t it be odd (and sometimes disconcerting…and sometimes really cool!) if we could do the things we can do in second life, in real life?  Like… change your hair, your face, your body…on a whim!  Wicked cool.  Possibly even wickeder cooler… teleporting!  With my partner and best friend on the opposite side of the rl planet, that is something we both wish for!  I know some people would like the ability to fly.  I am not one of those people.  lol  This chickie is chicken and does NOT fancy heights!

Now, on the flip side of all that comes the disconcerting….

One time when I was a noob I came home and everything was gone, my house, all my belongings, everything.  It would not be fun to lose everything you own, plus your house in real life!  You get home and OMG where’s my house???  It was here when I left!  OK, so another scenario… you get dressed, go out and you can see your clothes but no one else can.  !!!!!!  You turn into a red cloud!  You walk off a platform and fall down through the sky.  Or you live on a platform in the sky and sometimes people fly by.  Or now with mesh bodies, other people see you as a weird mix of body parts floating around and clothes floating around.  Awkward!!!  One last one…. imagine going to the store in rl and having to wait for everything to rez cause all you see is grey!  That’s one issue I’m glad not to have!  lol

In second life we can be anything we want to, go anyplace we want to (mostly!), it can be like a waking dream.  Just like real life, it can get expensive!  Thank goodness for the fab free blog where you can find amazing free and low priced goodies for your second life!  On that note… here’s the next one for you!

My outfit today is a super cute group gift from Loud Rebel Design.  Their group is free to join.  I felt so cute wearing it that it had me walking on air!  Or very nearly walking on air.  There are several trends right now I am finding super cute and jumpsuits is one of them.   So thanks to LRD for this group gift!

This jumpsuit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Stay safe and reach for the stars fab fam!

Oh Where Oh Where has Cupid Gone?

blasphemic_006

Hey fab gang!

I’ve been all over the grid recently helping to look for cupid in the Where’s Cupid Hunt. This is a 1L hunt and runs until Feb 14. While I didn’t actually *find* cupid (there’s still time!), I did find some awesome hunt gifts and have a sneak peek at three of them for you!

Too Sassy for You!

Blasphemic has this cute top in my photo above waiting for you in the hunt.  The saying on the shirt “Too Sassy for you!” resonated with me, brat that I am.  It’s got a pattern of open rips in the back and you can pair it nicely with jeans, short, skirt, anything.  I paired it with these jeans and ready to go! It comes in one size, fitted mesh and I’m wearing it over Maitreya in the picture.  I had no issues.

Never Stop Dreaming

It comes in

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

The cute Valentine-y backdrop is also a hunt prize, it’s from NinaX.  It’s low prim and very pretty.

25 (or so) Colors

Hey FabFree! It’s Tuesday and you know what that means!! That’s right it’s 25L Tuesday! There were so many good things on the HUD today I couldn’t pick just one! So I grabbed Gabriel and pointed him to one of the men’s 25L bargains and set him off to do a post too. There’s even a couple of cool deals for our Teeglepets and any of you Centaurs out there. But more on that in Gabe’s post.

I had to go grab this sweet and stunning little patchwork maxi from Viki. This is the ‘Gloria’ dress and I just love patchwork! Its such a cute and casual feeling. It made me want warm days and long evenings. Even though there are snowplows going past my window here in real life! Now some designers leave their 25L Tuesdays goodies up for longer than just Tuesday but don’t rely on that if you want any of the great deals like ‘Gloria’ here. Scoot over to Viki’s and snatch it up!

Let it Snow!

ice queen

Hey beauties!

Now, I’m a big kid, as you know.  I’m also a Disney girl, heck I even worked at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  Thats my happy place.  Another thing, I relate to Elsa, from Frozen.  Very much so.  (But I aspire to be Rapunzel from Tangled).  So, when I saw this Ice Princess dress at Antaya, well.  It was a no-brainer, a must have!!!  Visions of cosplay in my blog post dancing though my mind gleefully!  Even better, this was one of her group gifts she has out (Group is 50L to join).  Oh happy day!!!

The dress comes in Maitreya size.

As a side note, as I sit writing this to y’all, I’m waiting for a big winter storm to hit, so by the time its done, a couple of days from now, we will have about a foot and a half of snow.  Blowing, never ending snow.  Might be an excuse to watch Frozen, Frozen 2 and the little short films (like I need an excuse!!!!  lol) and sip some hot chocolate with vodka.  I may be a Florida girl but I know how to have fun in a Nor’easter!  What are your favorite things to do during a big snow storm?

Meanwhile, dinner is just about done so let me wrap this up for now, until next time my friends!

Don’t let the frostbite bite!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Sarcasm

Sarcasm

Alright Fab Free’rs, I have to say I really am not in to the whole concept of a New Year resolution. I’ve made them in the past, and struggled to keep up with them, and ultimately ended up feeling guilty or disappointed in myself if my resolution didn’t work out. I think we tend to put too much pressure on ourselves to become the best brightest shiny new version of ourselves just because it’s the start of a new trip around the sun. I am all for self betterment, I just think it has to happen in my/your own time.

ZFG

For this post, this group gift hoodie top from ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) just really summed up the concept of a New Year resolution for me. Sarcasm is also my favorite kind of ‘casm, whatever that means. lol The ZFG group is free to join, and this snarky shirt is free with your ZFG group tag. Since I know my cell phone covers up part of the text it reads “My New Year’s resolution is to reign in my sarcasm. Like that is going to happen.”.

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

Zombie Suicide

These glasses. Moons, stars, oversized lenses, these glasses from Zombie Suicide called out to me “Pru, you must take us home with you…”. Really, a must-have for me. They are the most recent group gift at Zombie Suicide, and the group has a 100 linden join fee. There are also past group gifts available. This gift has a color change hud as well that allows you to change the color of the frames, and the moon/stars so you can match these babies with everything.

Magnifique!

Je t'aimeBonjour Mon Cheri!

I hope this blog finds all you lovely blossoms doing well on this very chilly Sunday (where I am anyhow, windy and in the 20’s brrrrrr!)  With Valentine’s less than a month away, I’m beginning to think romantical thoughts.  The new group gift from no.match (group is 50L to join!) put me positively over the edge with romantical FRENCH thoughts!  It’s a lovely Parisian style bob (aka French Bob) which seems vintage but is always in style.  It symbolizes a woman who is independent, progressive and spirited!  I bet you didn’t even know that this french hairstyle was inspired by Joan of Arc!  The website V is for Vintage states; “Celebrity hairdresser Antoine referenced the French heroine when creating his new bobbed hairstyle. It is introduced into his Paris salon around 1909 and creates a new fashion fad. ”  It states too that in the 21st century, the bob still exudes “retro, chic, edgy, vintage, arty” vibes.  So… you can’t go wrong!

I paired it up with this very chic set from Shanti which is a new fab free gift that you can grab just by putting your fab free tag on.  The shop also carries 6 other colored sets which are currently on promo for 99L!  While I don’t have a history to share with you regarding the shorts/blazer outfit, I’ve seen this style in numerous shops lately and really love them.  Dressy and casual all wrapped into one!

These outfits come in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Au Revoir beautiful fabbies!
