Sunday Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hey there, fabulous readers!

I’m out for a stroll in my “Sunday best” and wanted to pop in and show you this adorable new gift from I.M. Collection.

Group Gift 17 was recently set out for members of the I.M. Collection in-world group. It comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The skirt and sweater are actually separate pieces so you could wear them with other items if you wished.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

FabFree: The Beach Is Calling And I Must Go

Yes, I hear it!

The beach is calling, and I must go!  It’s a good thing that Sexy Princess just hooked me up with this new bikini and sarong set so I’d be in high style when I got there!  The Sexy Princess inworld group is free to join, and once you do – you can pick up the newest free group gift as shown on my avatar today called Vaia Bikini & Sarong.  This comes in the black you see me wearing and also in red (which will be great for Canada Day, tomorrow on Sunday!).  You’ll find this gift on the back side of the wall behind the reception desk at the tail end of the store.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

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

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.

First Stop: Coffee

First Stop: Coffee

Hey there, fabulous readers! I hope you all have been well since I last “saw” you!

I’m back on the blog after taking a bit of a break, and I’m looking forward to sharing my favorite freebies with you.

But first… I had to stop for coffee.

Summer in Stripes

I’ve been noodling around SL for a few days in this cute summer dress from Ghee.

The Summer Stripes Dress is the May group gift (still available). It includes the belt and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The colors would be perfect for Flag Day or a 4th of July party… or just to lounge around your fave summer hangout.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now. Lounge around. And drink coffee. 🙂

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Vision in Pink_002

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!

Peace, Love & Camping

Peace, Love & Camping

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I just have to say that Second Life camping is so much more comfortable than Real Life camping. When I arrived to my site today, it was all set up.  My bed was made, the campfire was lit – even my camera was set out and ready to shoot some wildlife photos.  I swear sometimes camping in Real Life is simply setting up half the weekend and then dismantling it all for the rest of the weekend.  Next time, I think I’ll try my RL luck at The Holiday Inn, so I can log in here and get a comfortable camping fix.

Need a free spirited adventure of your own?

Getting dressed for one, is the first step!  You’ll need to take a trip to HashTag to pick up these Ripped Capri Dungarees (fitted for Maitreya Mesh Bodies) as a free group gift (free group join too!), and then head over to Loordes of London and hunt down a black rose hunt icon for the Glam or Grunge Hunt.  Once you find it – pay 1L and you’ll have the Right To Be Free top and vest combo.  It’s not super easy to see in my photo as my pose is a little hunched over, but the vest is decorated with all kinds of cool wild child things like buttons,etc.  This hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included:

  • 5 Standard Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

After Yesterday’s Rain

Misty Morning

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  After yesterday’s rain, the dawn arrived with a nearly cloudless sky, so Ripley and I decided to take a journey to Felicite Isle, one of our favorite sims for relaxing.  As small waves lapped against the shore, we paused among some wild flowers to capture a quick photo.

Fresh New Frock for Spring

I decided the other day to re-visit The Free Dove to see if there were any gifts recently made available, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover this free long sleeved dress from AvaGirl.  I’m not sure if it is a new addition to The Free Dove’s line up, or if I just had never seen it before, but once I spotted it, I knew it was destined for my inventory.  Featuring a full skirt that drapes to mid-thigh, a cute little cut out area on my tummy, and buttoned fasteners on the bodice, this frock made a wonderful addition to my spring wardrobe.  Best of all, it is completely free!  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to pick it up, however, there is no group join fee, so this new outfit will cost you exactly….zero linden dollars.  Now, that’s what I call a budget-friendly option!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Quiet Moments Lost in Thought

Lost in Thought

Well, hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy Saturday!  After a very late night (or early morning, I guess) in RL, I’m feeling a bit off track today.  I had to pick up a family member at the airport for a supposed midnight arrival, that turned out to be about an hour delayed.  The pupster and I didn’t get to sleep until about 2 am… eep!  Back in my wild and crazy  younger days, I could easily bounce back from a late evening, but now I find myself needing to sit and catch up.  I think Rip’s feeling the same way, because we both just plunked ourselves down near a fence line on the Whimberly sim this morning, and vegged.

Off the Shoulder

Luckily, it was a warm dawn in SL, so I was quite comfortable in my new “K2” shirt from the Petry Model Store.  This cropped top features a ruffled neckline, a one shoulder style, and a HUD that allows you to select from a variety of solid and print textures.  This floral pattern seemed just right for an early spring day, but if that’s not your style, you have 19 other options to choose from.  You can even opt to texturize the ruffle separately from the rest of the blouse.  Best of all, this little gem of a top is a free gift for members of the DM group, which is completely free to join!  In addition to this adorable shirt, there are a number of other free gifties set out; you’ll find them clustered on the wall nearby.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

I can see Ripley’s eyes drifting closed, and I’m feeling a bit sleepy myself.  We’re off to try to catch up on some Z’s.  Thankfully, we don’t have to deal with the time-change in our part of the world.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Oh, Lover Boy? C’mere Lover Boy!

Oooh, Lover Boy!

Sylvia
Yes, Mickey
How do you call your lover boy
Come here, lover boy
And if he doesn’t answer
Oh lover boy
And if he still doesn’t answer
I simply say
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you’re the one
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you’re the one

Come Here, Lover Boy

With so much lingerie being showing on the blog lately, you can sure tell that we’re getting in the mood for Valentine’s Day, lol!

Glitter recently set out this sexy number as a gift for getting their 7,000th group member. And since the group is free to join, you can make it yours for FREE!

Closer comes as two separate pieces in mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layers. The detailing of the lace and sequins is really quite pretty.

If you’re looking for a sexy pose for when you call your lover boy, you can pick up this one from Nanika on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena
