One Year Later...

Hello Fabulouses!  Well, it’s hard to believe it, but this week marks one year of blogging with Fab Free!  So much has happened in the past year for me in RL, but what hasn’t changed is how much I love blogging and sharing my adventures with Ripley.  I truly enjoy seeking out Fabulous Finds, and want to thank our wonderful readers for their support.  Reading your comments really makes my day!  I feel so blessed to be a part of the Fab Free team, and look forward to continuing to write far into the future.

Just Bluetiful…

Today, I am sporting the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of the Third Life Group.  The Lounge Outfit features a soft blue and white striped top with a knotted hemline, and long, comfy, stretchy pants – perfect for a lazy day.  I seriously would LOVE to wear this outfit in real life!  It offers a scooped neckline, white cuffs on the sleeves, and a coordinating white waistband on the pants.  Since the gift contains classic mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, it is sure to fit just about anyone.  The pants run long, and I wasn’t able to get my flat feet to work with them, but my high foot style was just right.  The outfit is worn as a complete set, so you can’t mix and match with other wardrobe components, but I thought the top and the pants were ideally suited for each other.  Although the Third Life Group has a 10L join fee, there are many goodies available for group members from a variety of designers, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

A Lucky Hair Day

Ripley and I decided to check out a new-to-us hair shop today called Mello, and I’m so glad we did!  Right in the entry way, there are 12 Lucky Boards for anyone, and 6 members-only boards packed with a variety of cute hairstyles.  Since joining the group was completely free, I decided to go for it, and see what happened.  Sure enough, that magical “K” appeared on one of the group-only boards, and I gleefully scooped up the Jaded hairstyle in “Blondies.”  After doing a little happy dance, I teleported on home to try out my prize.  Ripley took one look, and wagged his tail happily with approval.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover the gift included a texture HUD packed with 16 options.  This is sure to become one of my “go-to” hairstyles.

The Real Pupster

The Pupster

Because I mention him so often in my blog posts, I thought you might like a peek at the real-life pupster.  He’s my pride and joy, and such a good boy!  Thank you again, wonderful readers, for your support over the past 12 months.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Tell Me About It Scream Queen

Pastel Goth
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone enjoyed at least some of their weekend. Mine was uneventful but in a positive way. Even though it’s the dreaded start of the week, Monday,  I’m glad you’re here so I can share these sassy cute group gifts with you.

Tell Me About It Stud

This top by Shakira was one of those “I have to have that!” items the moment I saw it. You can’t put a quote from one of my all time favorite movies on something as cute as this fitted mesh t shirt and not expect me to grab it up! The quote on this FREE group gift at Shakira is from the scene in Grease where Sandy has transformed into the sexy “bad girl” version of herself, and her love interest, Danny, sees her for the first time. (If it isn’t obvious I think I know the movie by heart. lol) The shirt comes in fitted mesh sizes for Slink, Belleza, TMP, Maitreya, and Tonic bodies. There are several group gifts currently available, and the Shakira group is FREE to join.

Scream Queen

This sassy hairstyle is one of several group gifts still available at Mello. I even like the name, “Scream Queen”! This mid length style with side swept bangs comes with a color change hud that has 13 bright bold colors. You won’t find any natural hair colors with this gift, but that suits me fine. I really like the fullness of this hairstyle, and considering the Mello group is FREE to join, it’s a total steal.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Driftin’

Heyya Fabfree

Driftin'

I don’t know about your part of the real world right now, but mine is freakin’ hot. So of course this is the time the air conditioning decides to fry itself. I need to find a cool pool and relax! If only the real life was as easy to that as Second Life.  I’d be right at home with this super cute pool floatie from Bad Unicorn. The ‘Mega Unicorn Floatie’ is one of the current Group Gifts in the main store and it was so cute I had to grab it. The floaty comes in a wearable and a rezzable version and only takes up five land impact so I have him bobbing around my pond to make me smile.

I needed a nice new swimsuit to compliment my floatie friend and Pixal Perfect has this hot little number as the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. This is the ‘July Swimsuit’ and not only do you get the cute suit, you get a HUD to change the color of the top with four choices. The suit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. The hunt runs until

Topping off my summertime cool is my new hairstyle from Mello, a ‘new to me’ designer. This is ‘detox’ and it comes with a HUD for seventeen wild and pastel colors. Detox is one of the current Group Gifts at Mello and the group is free to join!

I think I’m just gonna chill here for awhile……

May Flowerage

Mello Lemonade

Hey There Fab Free’rs! After a rather long weekend, I’m back and I of course have awesome goodies to share with you! First, who doesn’t like a good up-do this time of year? It’s been muggy in my part of the world thanks to the unusual amount of rain, and the last thing I want is my hair making me feel hot and sticky. This messy bun is the current group gift at a hair shop called Mello. The Mello group is FREE to join, so this cute style is absolutely FREE, you just need a group slot. The gift includes a color change hud with a wide variety of pastel colors.
JLZ Floral Halter Additionally, I picked up this sweet little tie-back halter top at JLZ Fashion. This mesh top is their dollarbie Flowerage Hunt prize. The Flowerage hunt started a few days ago, and Astrid showed us another of the gifts in her post here. This cute floral top is also excellent for keeping cool as the seasons become warmer. The top is fully mesh, and includes many mesh sizes, there’s definitely one that will fit just about any avatar shape. You’ll definitely want to head over to JLZ Fashion and hunt down this adorable dollarbie.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
