Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

My rakish set is also a 25L Tuesday find. This is the “Cusu” set from Muneria. You get the tunic top with the bracers and belt wrap plus the leather pants. The HUD for both items is huge with plenty of choices. I know my RP character will be wearing this one for our next role play date.

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. We have a nice surprise for the gentlemen today. Amazing Creations has given us a “two for the price of one” hunt prize appropriately enough for the Surprise Hunt. This is the ‘Casual 5’ shirt one of the two prizes you can get for just 3L and a little hunting.  The shirts both come in two versions, one with the ‘doubled’ long sleeve look and one with simple regular short sleeves. Perfect for this time of year when the weather can be warm one day and cool the next.

The Surprise Hunt runs until April 30th which is creeping closer rather quickly. So don’t delay too long or the surprise will be all gone.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh – XS – XL
  • Nardcotix David
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male
  • TMP

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers.  Though it may be afternoon at least in my part of the Grid… I am getting ready for the weekend nights. And the 50L Fridays sale is setting me up just perfectly. If you are unaware of this every Friday sale, you can see all the details here.

Let’s start at the top with the top. This is the ‘Tobias’ tank from Butterscotch and it’s the 50L special today. It only comes in the black but, if you wait till tomorrow you can pick one up in blue for the Saturday Sale. I prefer the darker colors so I don’t need to wait around. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
    Signature Gianni
    Legacy

 My new slacks are also just 50L today from one of my favorite designers: AsteroidBox.  These are the ‘Jordan’ pants and they come in a Unisex pack to include ladies sizes. Each leg can be colored separately to make your own style stand out. The metal zippers color can also be changed. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake  + Freya
  • Legacy Male + Female
  • Maitreya

Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Market Finds for the Girls *and* the Guys!

market 1_022

Hey gang,

So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match!  Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.

For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB.  He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me  lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style.  It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:

  • FitMesh
  • Classic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Slink Male
  • Gamit Ocacin
  • Signature Gianni
  • Adin Bento
  • Onupup)

Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat).  The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well.  This outfit fits:

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

Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.

Black Heart

Black Heart

Good evening, Fab Readers. If you ever wonder what the bloggers here on ‘the Fab’ go through for you… wonder no more. I have braved the Valentines Day Shop & Hop for you.  I may be seeing pink and my ears ringing with love songs for days. But there was men’s wear to be had… so I prevailed. 😉

I found a very unusual shirt as the free gift for Reinvent and ended up rather liking it. This is the “Black Heart long sleeve” and yes… it’s sheer. Good thing I was at the gym earlier. The heart shape on the chest reads “Black Black Heart” and it may accurately describe how a lot of people feel about this holiday. The shirt is very well made and the details are spot on. Be sure to stick around and check out the Reinvent booth… there are some very nice things for sale.

The Valentines Day Shop & Hop runs until Feb. 15th so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Yo Ladies *and* Gents!

Hey Fabbity Fabs!

Been going through more of my goodies from Shop & Hop and did a bit of mixin’ and matchin’ for y’all!  It’s always so much fun when Shop & Hop comes to town, though our inventories need to be burped after, from being so overstuffed after!  Nonetheless, I have a bunch of freebies so that all our inventories can burp in unison and the entire grid will need to be restarted (I hope not!)!

An Unexpected Surprise – Unisex Goodies!

Aren’t my roses and box of candy just adorable?  They are part of a pose set from PosED which is a free gift at Shop & Hop (called Unexpected Surprise!  Did ya see that one coming?).   It is unisex, so the guys can get in on the fun too (hey, they deserve roses and candy too those men of ours!).  My cute necklace is also part of a free unisex giftie from FashionNatic, they call it a broken hearts necklace but since you can wear one half, and you other half wears, well, the other half… I see it more as a connected heart.  They match up together and can be customized with any initials you like.  They fit Legacy, Maitreya and Kupra for women and Gianni, Jake and Legacy for the guys.

My cute top is a free gift from QE and fits:

  • EBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Fine
  • Curvy
  • Venus

It also comes with a 3 color HUD.

Last but not least, these cute pants are from Ghee and are also a free Shop & Hop gift.  They fit:

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