New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Hey FabFree! I am slowly starting to crawl out from under my dark rock. After a long few months of depression, I’m starting to feel a bit better. I did end 2022 on a great note, however, as I got married and that started my new year out on the right foot. Let’s hope 2023 is better!

New Gifts & Deals

Now, let’s walk through the fantastic freebies and sales I am wearing today…

  • My pretty skirt is the latest FabFree group gift from MOoH! Just join our amazing free group and pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be returned to you in a jiffy, making it a fabulously free goodie. The skirt includes a hud of plaid options with a cute little belt (you can change the colour of the belt too!). A set of little black panties is included as well. It all fits Reborn, Legacy, Lara, Hourglass, eBODY Curvy, and Freya.
  • My lipstick is a free gift at Sintiklia. Just join their group for free and click the big gift box at the landing. The lipstick comes in an HD applier for Lelutka EvoX and Lelutka Evolution heads. Several fantastic shades are included in this Christmas lipstick set.
  • Finally, my pretty hairstyle is the current Happy Weekend offer at Sintiklia. It’s only 60L, and if you wear the free group tag you get 9L refunded back to you as well as 3L in store credits. It includes a HUD in the colour pack of your choice and a style HUD. They even have a style out for men at the moment for the same sale, so take a look!

Here’s to new beginnings, FabFree!

Pump It Up

DS Ghee bodysuit closeup 2_001

It’s the start of a New Year. Yes, indeed. Time to hit the gym to shed a few pounds, and tone up some sexy muscles. I made it to the gym today but watching all those men behind me work out & sweat (not the stinky kind) made me pretty darn thirsty. I couldn’t even think of exercising until I hydrate. Do I get points for just standing here looking fab?

The Right Stuff

Luckily I visited the latest round of Designer Showcase celebrating the 12th anniversary of this event. Most designer booths have gifts in them. You will need the Free to join group. I picked up this sweet bodysuit by Ghee that is perfect for working out as well as looking fetching. The Juliet bodysuit comes in the colors pictured.

Sizes

  • Kupra & Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn.

Why Not?

Okay, some might say my fine looking earrings are a bit much for the gym. I say hey, I have to look fab wherever I roam. The Mahogany Store has the Crystal earrings I wearing set out as a free gift at Designer Showcase. They remind of the old “bling” jewelry back in the old days of SL. They aren’t as primmy as the old ones so you can wear them knowing with confidence that you won’t crash a sim. Do you know that the owner & creator for the Mahogany Store started her SL life as a singer? Not only is she a fine performer, she’s a pretty awesome creator.

What’s your workout style?

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

It’s Only a Couple of Scratches

Java Halloween dress free 3_001

It was one of those Escape Rooms where you get locked in with people you don’t know and have to work together to escape. Seems that none of us who were booked for last night got the memo about leaving knives at home. As the evening turned to night it got  very dark. And oops, no one told us to bring flashlights.

In all that inky blackness things got a wee bit out of hand. Although I may be torn up a bit I’m fine. From the looks of it our team won! We all celebrated with a round of Bloody Marys!

A Spooky Take on a Classic

I like graphic clothing with witty sayings or artwork It’s a way of expressing yourself. A longtime SL fashion designer, Simone Udimo, is the creator/owner of  Java Fashion Design. I’ve been a subscriber at her store for years. She regularly offers free gifts for everyone and always has low prices. My dress today is one of several totally free gifts at the store. Upon entering look for 2 pumpkins in the lobby. They’re really easy to spot.

I’m wearing the Prissy Perks Midi dress that has been set out as a Halloween gift at Java Fashion Design. I think it’s hysterical with all of the wounds and the saying, “I’m fine”. As you can see it’s trimmed with a drippy, bloody border. It’s sized for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Legacy, Maitreya, & SLink Hourglass.

My heels are a free gift from [QE] at Shop & Hop. The Akila heels are definitely keepers.  The styling is perfect and of course there is a color/texture change hud with a choice of 15 colors. The heels fit Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink. There are only a few days to visit Shop & Hop; it ends on November 1st.

Java Halloween dress free Closeup _001

As I mentioned in a previous post Booty’s Beauty has new makeup on the MM boards every day. The La Luna eyeshadow comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX. The awesome tattoo below my right eye was on sale at One 2K for $25L Tuesday. It looks like I have a stash of extra eyeballs inside my cheek! Unfortunately it has been set back to regular price. (Sorry about that readers).

Lastly I am wearing a set of Bento Square nails by Fatal Fashion you can pick up for free at Swank (the group is free to join). They fit SLink, Maitreya, Belleza Kupra, Legacy, & Tonic.

If you aren’t ready for Halloween it is time to get it together!! Now – run!

It seems like all we are showing lately are spooky goods! How can you resist? ‘Tis the season for spooks, and I am enjoying every moment. I have a host of spooky offers to share today and quite a few of theses are limited-time sales, so let’s get down to it so you don’t miss ’em.

Found A Diet That Works!

Found A Diet That Works

It’s October and for many that means Halloween!! Some of my friends and family in both worlds love Halloween and look forward to decorating and dressing up many months in advance.  So for those who wear a different costume everyday in October I am showing you a skeleton avatar from MOoH!  It’s a group gift and the group is currently 100L to join.  The costume includes the hair, hat, dress and spiders, one stop shopping!

I think she was a beauty back in the day but years of laying in a grave have taken a toll on her.  It’s nice that she has made some spider friends to keep her company as she rooms the haunted places of SL.

The Get Crabby Hunt!

Get Crabby Hunt

I’ve been having lots of fun this month blogging the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. You can see my past posts on this complex and huge event here and here. Today I’m introducing you to another aspect of this event. On top of the main event, they have a hunt going on, which takes place at Get Crabby Hunt Island. As you explore the Sim, the hunt object you are looking for is a crab! This is a paid hunt, and a group join fee is required to participate in it. The group costs 500L to join. Pictures of all the Get Crabby Hunt prizes are posted on their hunt web page HERE. You will see group joiners for the hunt group at Get Crabby Hunt Island. You can also pick up a crab plushie and crab hats as a group gift there as well if you decide to join the hunt group. Here is the link to the hunt group to join if you have trouble finding it. Again, be warned that the group costs 500L to join.

secondlife:///app/group/88edea59-d946-ecd1-ef0e-764cba73d782/about

Note that 100% of the funds that are spent towards the Get Crabby Hunt are being donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the designers do not make any profits from this hunt. It’s very kind of the creators out there to make all those products and to put them up for a benefit. Sometimes we don’t recognize how hard creators work to give us gifts, but to go the extra mile to donate beautiful products to a fundraiser that gives back to society shows how incredible the creative community in Second Life is. Doctors Without Borders is an organization that provides medical care to people around the world as a result of war, conflicts, and other crises. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival donated over 100, 000 real-life American dollars from this event in the last 7 years, and I hope these donations can help those in need around the world this year too! The Get Crabby Hunt ends on September 18th, so if you plan to do this hunt make sure you get to it well before this date so you have time to find all the prizes.

I am showing two hunt prizes from the Get Crabby Hunt and another 10L find from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival today as featured items, so keep reading for all the details!

Do you Love to Mix & Match?

First off, the fabulous outfit I have on is an absolute must-have! This is the Get Crabby Hunt prize from MOoH!. This outfit includes a bikini top, a skirt and bikini bottoms (which are worn under my skirt). This is a versatile set because you can wear it as a bikini, a full outfit or separates. The outfit comes with a number of funky patterns you can apply to the separate parts via a colour change HUD, so mixing and matching is possible. Plain classic colours that are included in the hud are red, white, light violet, dark plum and pink. Pattern options include florals, skulls, a dragon pattern (shown here) and some other fun patterns. You can see the possibilities of mixing and matching the texture options in this outfit in the vendor photo below.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Petite
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Mounds

Melinda outfit

Pineapple, Bora Bora

The second hunt prize I am featuring is a wonderful painting of a pineapple made by Katherine Littlepaws, who owns Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery. This painting is just fantastic- it looks so realistic, colourful and expressive! The background is fantastic with the collage elements the artist has included. This is a prize on the Get Crabby Hunt.

Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery also has another painting on a special promotion for only 10 Lindens at their Spoonful of Sugar Festival booth. The get to the exact spot where you can grab the painting, go  here. The item on sale for this low price is the small colourful painting shown in my photo on top of the pineapple piece. Note that this smaller painting is not part of the hunt, so anyone can purchase it and no group is required to buy it for 10L. 100% of the proceeds spent on this painting are given to Doctors Without Borders.

Phew, that was a lot of information! Have fun, FabFree! I’m off to go get a tropical cocktail now. I deserve it after all that writing. 😉
