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. 💓

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. 😉

Cat Hangout

cat hangout

I created this fun little apartment scene just for the cats to hang out in today! My furbaby in RL is a total apartment dweller, so this kitty cat bachelor pad is inspired by my baby.

I have some limited-time sales and a freebie to show tonight. These will be gone tonight or any moment now, so go ASAP to get them.

  • The beige cat pole with the funny cats playing on it and with the hanging fish cat toys is on sale for 50L for the Secret Sale at MOoH! until today, August 29th. The item includes a cat tree with cats on it (shown on the right) and a cat tree without the cats on it (shown on the left). Several other colour options and a special Halloween edition of this cat pole are available for 50L each at MOoH! for the duration of the sale. The sale ran from August 26th to today. Once the sale ends, you can get it for full price at the MOoH! mainstore if you miss the sale. You only have a few hours left to get these at the price of 50L, perhaps less. If you want to do a quick last-minute rush run through the Secret Sale, the details about how to do this sale and previews of the deals are posted on their website, which I have linked right here.
  • The other sale item I have to show you tonight is a cat gym. That’s the dark brown one with the black cat sleeping on the top with the white cat sleeping at the bottom. This item is currently on sale at Noveny for only 60L. This was on the eBENTO sale last weekend, but it’s still available to grab for that low price at the time of posting right now! This item will likely also be released for full price after the sale is taken down, but now is your chance to get it for a low price. RUN before it switches over to full price.
  • The birdcage lamp is on sale right now for 60L for an unknown limited time at Noveny for the Beauty60 sale. All of the 60L sales for this weekly event are posted on their website here.
  • The tire table with beer bottles is the latest free subscriber gift at Noveny. Just subscribe and click and it is yours for free. This is not a limited-time item (it should be out for a bit of time as it’s a brand new subsriber gift…), so don’t feel too stressed about getting it tonight. However, you may as well pick it up if you’re heading over to Noveny. 😉

That’s all for now! See you soon, FabFree!

Cover Up, Buttercup!

Pixel Doll

I have two quick finds from Pixel Doll for FabFree at Fifteen in my post this morning. Note that I wore both of these outfits with a BOM bra and a panty cover, because they were a wee bit too revealing to show without! They are highly transparent when worn on their own, so be mindful of this, dear readers.

  • The dainty see-through dress with black hearts is free. Just activate your FabFree group tag to get it. It fits Hourglass, Lara, Petite, Legacy, Perky, Freya, Kupra, Kups, eBODY Curvy & Reborn, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The other outfit, which includes the tied shirt and panties, only costs 75 Lindens! The outfit includes a HUD that allows you to change the shirt to 6 different cow-patterned colours, and the panties come in matching transparent colours. The outfit fits Lara, Petite, Freya, Reborn, Legacy, and Perky.

Have a blast, FabFree!

Cat & Moon

Cat & Moon

I have an amazing list of items from the fabulous designers for our FabFree at Fifteen event. Curated together, they make a rather witchy look!

  • LuluB! has this incredible asteroid orb out as a free gift for all group members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group. It includes 3 bento hold animations, and it can also be rezzed. It’s fantastic and it’s one of my favourite gifts from the event!
  • VENGE has a gorgeous chest tattoo available as their free gift for FabFree group members. This is a BOM tattoo that includes several version in white, red, and branded options at different levels of opacity (fresh, 75%, & 50%).

  • Max Magic has the tattoo shown on my arms for sale for 15L. I thought the cats and moons on it went perfectly with the witchy vibe look! This tattoo is BOM only.
  • Eventyra has a set of spectral gothic nails out for 75L. They include nail appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Cinnamon & Chai, and Omega. The set comes in several colour options. I previously blogged Eventyra‘s free gift here, and their 15L offer here.

That’s all for now, FabFree. I’m off to conjure a spell!

Cute and Out of the Ordinary

Cute and Out of the Ordinary

Happy weekend, FabFree! I have some cute and out-of-the-ordinary finds to share with you today. There’s a lot here, so let’s jump into the deals!

Escape the Ordinary

Escape the Ordinary Hunt is a hunt I had never heard of until now! This is the third year the hunt has ran, and it’s organized by Stuff My Inventory Hunts. The theme of the hunt is all things different and out of the “normal”. You’ll see a variety of odd items available on the hunt, so there really is variety on this one! The cute cabinets shaped like dresses with mice popping out of them are the hunt prize from MOoH!, under their MOoH! Stuff product line. The hint to find the prize is, “find me under a pillow pile in the mainstore!”. These are so different but very cute. Each prize costs 3 Lindens on this hunt. You can see a list of the participating stores and hunt previews here. The Escape the Ordinary Hunt 3 ends on July 31st.

Cutie!

Now it’s time to move away from those cute mice and focus on me. I completed my look today using goodies from FabFree at Fifteen. Here’s the list of what I used from the event to make today’s cute and pink look.

  • For only 15 Lindens, you can be a cutie in the “Cute Summer Romper” from Shanti. It fits Maitreya Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBODY Classic, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, The Mesh Project, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The black boots are for sale at Shanti as well, available for 175L, and they are sized for Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya.

Cute and Out of the Ordinary II

  • From Edie’s, I am wearing their 15L special, which is a BOM makeup set made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX heads. The set includes 6 eyeshadow colours, 6 shades of lipstick, and 1 eyeliner. Allison showed their other Fab offers available here, so make sure you check out her post if you haven’t yet!
  • My pretty freckles are the free gift for FabFree group members at 7 Deadly s[K]ins. These come in 6 options of different freckles variations, and they come in BOM layers that fit Lelutka EvoX heads only.
  • At {Poeme} Couture, I picked up their super cute and free gift for FabFree group members, which is this cute hairpin. The gift includes a hud that allows you to change the pin to 6 different mosaic patterns.
  • Eventyra has these cute nails out for 15 Lindens! The pattern of these nails is a pretty white butterfly overlaid over bright colours, and you can change them to several different colour options using the hud. The hud includes nail and toenail appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Cinnamon & Chai, and Omega.

Thanks for reading, FabFam!

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!

See you soon,

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! ❤
