Takin’ it to the Streets

ukraine flag_010

Tis just me gang,

Sneaking in for a post.  Ohhhhh gollygosh, it’s been a crazy rl time for me.  Real life job stuff has had me on my toes the last week or so, coming to a head tomorrow (in a good way, hopefully!)  So I didn’t forget about y’all!  Just scrambling to keep up!  You know when you have those waves of time where you know if you can just get done with A, B and C, you can regroup and refocus?  I’m trying to get those things done now and hopefully by this weekend, be able to breathe again.

Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine sadly rages on.  Many of the designers have been creating wonderful items so that we can show our support for the poor people of Ukraine.  I’ve got a couple more to showcase for you today so let’s get on with it.

This super cute and colorful top is a find on marketplace for 25L by Morph Studios.  It fits:

  • CLASSIC XXS-L
  • TONIC CURVY / FINE
  • EBODY CLASSIC / CURVY
  • LEGACY
  • KUPRA
  • MAITREYA
  • SLINK HOURGLASS / PHYSIQUE
  • BELLEZA FREYA/ ISIS / VENUS

This pose is another cute marketplace find and it also comes with a pose for two people, so they’ve gotcha covered whether you are posing alone or with a friend.  It is made by Chocolate Cake (which sounds good right about now!) and will cost you absolutely nothing (aka free!).

My face tattoo in Ukraine Colors is a gift from Carol B, I found it on market also for free.

Lastly, my fellow protestor in the back is a 10L find also on market by Salmagundi (I just like to say that out loud!).  He is copy so you can turn him into an entire crowd if you please.

I’m Lucky Tonight

Coming Soon

St. Patty’s Day may be over, but the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt is still raging on until March 25th. Let’s dig into a few more gifts from the hunt!

First off, my pretty skin is a prize from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. they have several versions of this skin in the hunt package with beauty marks, lip gloss, browless and other features. I’m wearing the version with freckles! The skin is BOM, designed for Genus heads and you get the full set for only 5 Linden.

My cute little shamrock tattoo on my face is the hunt prize at new.monday. There’s also a cute rainbow face tattoo on the hunt there too! Both prizes are free!

Lucky Tonight

There’s some other St. Patty’s-themed hunts still available to do on the grid. One of those is the
Lucky Tonight Hunt 5, which has some adorable prizes! I love the prize from Ari-Pari, which is this cute crop top and shorts set, which you can change to several colour options via a hud. The prize costs only 1L!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Legacy

Other Fun Finds

I had the chance to go all-out shopping last week, so I picked up a few more freebies to add to this outfit.

  • The pretty shamrock earrings are a free FabFree group gift at REA Fashions. The set includes a necklace too! The detail on these is excellent.
  • I decided to follow Desi’s advice here, and pick up the free 250L store credit group gift at Wicked Brat. I’m wearing the “Angel Eyes” which I got for free with my credit. Thanks Desi for the heads up! You can read all about it in her post here.
  • Finally, I found a great set of nailpolishes from Alaskametro at Free Dove. This is the “Alaska’s favs” collection and they are amazing! I love these nails. They include Omega and Maitreya appliers. See the picture below for the image of nail colours! I picked the glittery silver polish, but there are many options to choose from as you can see!

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! ❤

Hope for Healing

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree! Long time no see. I’m going through a rough patch health-wise, but hopefully I’ll be back to the full swing of things soon.

In the meantime, I have a cute little post about the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt. I just love the FabFree hunts! They give me that extra push of motivation to get the blogs out, and who can say no to a FabFree event? Not me! The adorable rainbow and shamrock heels I have on are a free hunt prize from Grumble on the new hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

More Goodies

I also have a couple more gifts to show you today that completes my cute little March outfit.

  • The great hairstyle is a group gift at Yomi. This is an older gift but I thought it deserved to be featured again because it’s so beautiful! Their group costs 100 L to join and they have other gifts waiting for you there.
  • My cute pose is from a free pose pack on the Marketplace by Overlow poses. Great animations here!

Enjoy, Fabbies!

The Bearded Guy and the Secret Garden

Simple Gifts

Every good story should start with the line, “let me tell you about The Bearded Guy and a Secret Garden.”  Such is the case with today’s outfit.

I started my morning as I always do, reading the FabFree blog to see what my blogging sisters have been up to.  Well, it turns out that Sister Arielle had been over to the Secret Garden, and that reminded me that I, too, needed to get on over there to see what goodies can be launched from those precious machines.  You can read about her adventures with the Mooh machine here.

While I have to admit that I was not at all fond of the Gacha ban, I really don’t mind the “next up” (there are so many names now) machines.  For one, I thought at least 20 times, wow, I just saved a fat ton of Linden.  In the Gacha days, I would never buy hair or clothes at a machine because I am very specific about my hair color, and I don’t like wasting precious Linden on clothes and accessories I will never wear.  Imagine my delight when I landed at the Demicorn spot at the Secret Garden and the three machines were humming in tandem!  Each 50L a pull, I scored three dresses that I will wear (red, pink and white), 2 rare pink bears, a black bear, and 2 gift boxes.  It was a such a nice score without anything I wouldn’t actually want!

Once I finish reading the blogs, I check out all the sales for the day, and, since it’s Saturday, there are lots of things to occupy my virtual purse.  I headed over to The Bearded Guy for some sale props, and that was the first time I had been to his store.  HOLY TOLEDO!  The Group is 75L to join, but there is an ENTIRE WALL of group gifts AND a 1500L Gift Card for group members.  I bought this scene, Cute Palacio Backdrop, with the Gift Card.  The scenes range in prices but the 1500L Gift Card will buy one fatpack or several single scenes.  I did the latter because I have a “thing” for pink.

So now that shopping is over, I can go listen to Rasbury Rearwin play the guitar in a seriously cute outfit!!!

A Walk in the Secret Garden

Mooh at Secret Garden

Hey gang!

Far be it from me to pass up a trip to a place filled with Next Up machines.  Especially when they are loaded with irresistible cuteness.  So yes, I’ve been recently obsessed with the Secret Garden this month.

Case in Point, Mooh.

You can collect up an entire outfit in these, all mix and match, and each one adorbs in the Mooh machines at The Secret Garden.  I’ve got the entire key below, but they’ve gotcha covered right from your head (headphones!) down to your toes (shoes!).  At only 50L a play, I had a blast trying for the colors I wanted!  All the parts are especially made for Maitreya.

Such cuteness, am I right?  This is just the tip of the iceberg over there, so go have a stroll around and grab yourself a cute Mooh ensemble and shop all the machines (and then come back and check them randomly til what you want comes up.  I may or may not have been doing that!  *wink wink*).

The Luck of the Draw!

Bring on the Night
Ladies, it’s Confessions with Desi.  I miss Gachas.  I loved me a good Gacha event back in the day (like last year).  But, the rules changed and now we have Next Up machines.  I will admit that I am kind of a fan of them, as I am wasting a lot less money on  stuff I don’t want, but I am not standing around for days hoping someone pulls the stuff I don’t like so I can get what I do.  It’s an odd joy when I show up to a machine and there are back to back prizes that I really like.  Such was the case at the Evil Bunny Productions “Up for Grabs” Next Up Event.  The event runs until February 28th.

I picked up the free gifts at some of the vendors and then looked over the machines.  There were some cute things I really wanted, but, alas, they weren’t the next up items…they weren’t even on the board yet…so I will have to wait for a Next Up Yardsale.  But, then….THEN…I got to the Fatal Fashion machine!  Waiting for my 50L pull was this adorable little dress and the next item was, luckily, the matching panties!

The Britches!

How lucky!!!  I quickly scored these two fine articles of virtual bliss for 50L each before someone else jumped in to steal my pull (I mean, that’s never actually ever happened anywhere, but there is a real fear).  I love this cute little outfit!!!

The PINK Season is coming

The Pink Season is coming

Hey there, Fab Free! Can you believe the week is nearly over??? Another day and it’s the weekend already! I guess it’s a good thing but dang! Anyway, time and January is apparently going to speed by and before we know it it’ll be hearts and kisses and PINK everywhere. 

I guess I have some pink on the brain cause when I tried on this latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from MOoh I had to have the pink shirt instead of any of the other colors. So, this is the “Mariah” outfit and it’s the gift I’m talking about. You can pick it up for free when you wear your free FabFree Group tag and slap that board. Mariah comes with the jacket/shirt combo and the skirt as separates which is always nice. The denim part has a HUD for two colors: blue and black while the HUD has seven solid colors and five stripy colors for the shirt. I still am enjoying my Winter but this might have me thinking about Spring.

Winter Wonderland
Hiya, got a hot one for you, Let’s dive into some hunting and decor!

Say Hello To My New Friends

Like all us Fabfree folks, I like free. And for umpteen years now, the best free spot in SL is, of course, Free Dove. You just can’t beat this deal, for a free group space, you get introduced to new creators without the bite to the wallet. Not that I can remember just how I got to know Free Dove, I would imagine it was via our own Fabfree Blog. And since that time I have been referring all the noobies, I see there. LOL. A bonus perk of this fab group is the monthly hunts. For just a tad bit of your time, you can pick up 10 items from the hunt for free. And they sure pack the hunt with goodies! This month there are 3 creators to hunt for, that’s 30 free items. Woohoo to that. Jacx is modeling the free Tastic Ella Sweater, so cute with its winter pattern in sweet pink & off-white color. You can wear it as a dress or like Jacx a big sloppy sweater with leggings, just right for cleaning up after Christmas day. Drop over to Free Dove, look around, join the free group, hunt you up some awesome clothes. The hunt runs till Dec. 31st, so you still have a bit of time to work on making room in your inventory for more goodies. 🙂

Goodbye Snowbound

Yay!  Raindale is free to join for the holidays! This is a big saving, a truly great group, with an extremely generous and all-around super nice creator Kiera.

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂
