I Can Just Taste It

I Can Just Taste It

It’s almost the weekend, FabFree.  I can feel it.  I can almost taste the freedom from here.  Almost.  What exactly does weekend taste like?  Well, to me it tastes like effervescent Italian orange soda, a pile of mixed chocolates and a smattering of roast potatoes.  Sounds random, right?  Well, have you met me?

Off to Queenz

There’s a new group gift at Queenz, and that always puts me in a chipper mood.  It’s been a little while since the last one, so I forgot how fun it can be to style their body-conscious looks.  Always plenty of fun colours to play around with in the HUD too!  To grab this lovely top and pants combo (which can be worn separately), just join the free group and click on the vendor.  There’s a rather extensive wall of gifts to pick up while you’re there.

Sizes

  • GenX Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

What does weekend taste like to you?

Girls Who Lunch

Girls Who Lunch

I was shopping around and ran across The Annex which has a very nice selection of period (role play) outfits as well as everyday looks that you will want to check out.  In the huge pile of free gifts I found this sweet dress that was made to pair with pearls and great handbag.  I am ready for lunch with the girls; where my girls at?

Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

You know that feeling of wanting to get away somewhere, but you can’t really?  You’re stuck at home looking out the windows wishing for some glorious beach vacation that involves swaying palm trees and someone to serve you drinks in coconuts.  It’s kinda one of those summers for me, where I’m not quite ready to hop on a plane (aka, brave the giant lines of people who insist on breathing close to you… ha), so I’m trying to think of ways to shake up the monotony.   My inworld counterpart seems to have it all down pat – so maybe I’ll take some cues from her!

Decor Fabulosity

Raindale has always been one of my absolutely favourite stops for decor inworld.  There’s always something new, different and distinctive.  I was so excited when Keira joined us for FabFree at Fifteen, and her items really blew me out of the water.  To make my little staycation bubble, I bought the lovely Sunnybay Pool for just 75L (the water in it is soooo beautiful) and lit my area with the very festive Lagunadream lamps that are just 15L for both the pink and green lamps.  Then, come the extremely generous free gifts!  The wallpapered spot, map, pineapple sconce, table, stool (complete with poses), and suitcase are all free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group – and they really, really are gorgeous.  Stop by Raindale and grab these lovely gifts before they all go away on August 6th.   Thanks Raindale!

Two More…

I need a cute outfit for my staycation, and happily two spots have obliged to put one together for me:  Masoom has a new group gift out, this cute little tennis-style skirt in the very appealing summery ombré shade (it also comes in pink and teal).  You’ll remember a few weeks back they had a top as a group gift that matches perfectly (see it HERE).  The group is currently 200L to join, but you’ll find a wall full of really awesome gifts.

Skirt Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Reborn

I also stopped by Paper Antler (formerly…and possibly also still known as Grixdale) and picked up this cute top (it’s part of a bikini set) for free.  No need to join a group here, just click on the item that says “free” on it.  You’ll want to look around the store while you’re here – there are all sorts of hidden freebies (you could call them wearable demos if you want to be specific).

Top Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya

Wait, where’s my coconut drink?

Dinner for Two

Dinner for Two

I’m back and blushing, my dear FabFree readers!  It’s one of those days where I feel like romance is indeed not dead.  One of those days where I’m reveling in sweet words, kind gestures and whispered promises.  You can’t really beat that with a stick, unless you’re adding some freebies and even a romantic dinner for two.

Back at It

I do love showing off my favourite finds from Shop & Hop.  I realise that not everyone has the gumption to hit up 10 sims filled with people to get a pile of boxes filled with things that might not necessarily float their boat.  So, we do a bit of the sorting for you here on the blog, and then pick the standouts.  Here’s what I’m in love with today:

  • FREE dress by Stories & Co. sized for Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Legacy Perky Petite
  • FREE biscuits by Movement
  • FREE table, chairs and romantic meal (check the steam coming off the pasta!) by ionic

You’ve got until February 15th to visit Shop & Hop, so no massive rush yet!  All the gifts are free, no group join required!  Yay!

Heart eyes to you all!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

Welcome, Advent!

Welcome, Advent!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, FabFree!  We’ve been slaving away at our yearly massive Advent calendar listing, and we’re oh so happy that you’re here to take part in one of our fave SL traditions.  It’s sometimes difficult to show off what is in each Advent calendar, since the gifts are usually only available the day of, but today I’ve been given access to one of the best calendars on the grid, so I can give you a bit of a sneak peek of what to expect from the lovely humans over at Entice!

How Enticing!

If you don’t do many Advent calendars (I get it – trust me… after looking at the list I often need to sit in a darkened room and hum to myself for a while), there are always a few calendars that you should never pass up, and Entice is definitely one of them!  If you join their free group, you’ll get an awesome gift every single day of Advent.  If you’re out of group space, you can also purchase the item for 25L without joining the group.  Missed a day?  You can pick up the prize for just 50L!  All in all, some great deals and totally a calendar worth checking out.  I’m showing you what’s coming on December 16th and 17th – I love that green colour! Also, the back of the sweater has some gorgeous lacing up the back that you have to see to believe.  Perfect for a day around town shopping for things I clearly don’t need.   Check out the preview shots below of what to expect, so many pretty things!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Have a really amazing Advent, FabFree!

Black Friday Shopping

Black Friday Shopping
Hiya, hope all of you in the US had a happy turkey day and the rest of the world a wonderful Thursday. And if like me, being a tad sluggish today due to carb overload LOL. So you need something to get the blood flowing again. Today’s outfit will do just that.

Planning For The Future

This post is ultimately about the future, but first the present, as in a gift, LOL group gifts. Meva has 2 new group gifts out. Jacx is modeling my favorite of the 2 Meva‘s Akina Set ticks a ton of the right boxes. Starting with a beautiful hunter or forest green color, (timely for the upcoming Xmas season.) The set consists of a jacket that is open clear to almost the navel, with contrasting lapels and a waist hugging belt. The skirt has a pleasing thigh-baring split to really show some leg. The outfit is free but does require the group which has a 100L join fee. This group is well worth having, as Meva does a fantastic advent, (if previous years are anything to go by) and that is just around the corner. Dec. 1st -Dec 24th.

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

Bringing You More Boo!

Bringing You More Boo!

The countdown to Halloween is well and truly on now, and I for one am having such an awesome time dressing up, showcasing cute spooky gifts and finding even more of them to show you.  Sometimes finding something new and cool to blog can be a bit of a chore – but when there are tons of events, hunts, gifts and fun, it totally give me a thrill to post each day!

Spookzilla Time!

The Spookzilla hunt is back!  It’s probably one of the more challenging hunts on the grid, seeing as there are no clues, and the little hidden ghosts are ALL over the sim!  With a bit of patience, and perhaps a dash of luck, you’ll be able to find plenty of gifts, all priced under 25L.   I had a great time looking for goodies (there are SO many awesome prizes this year, it was super hard to choose what I wanted to show you!) and settled on putting together an outfit with the following gifts:

  • 25L top by Loki sized for Legacy & Maitreya
  • 25L skirt by Look at Me sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya
  • 15L hair by Yomi

All the hunt keys can be found at the landing point – a notecard will be sent to you when you land.  I wish you and your eyeballs good fortune – you’ve got until November 1st to take part!

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

First things first, this building in the background is actually one of my favourite ever in Second Life – it’s a perfect replica of one of the buildings at Marie Antoinette’s village at Versailles.  Isn’t it the best?  In case you’re into it – you can find it at Never Totally Dead.  Anyway, I’ve decided to head over to the “hameau” (which basically means tiny village) and deliver a few treats to the inhabitants… I’m pretty sure there’s mostly geese at this point, which just means more cupcakes for me!

This is Halloween

Paper.Sparrow has a fun little Halloween Hunt going on until October 31st.  Just search the store for little black bats (spoiler alert:  they’re pretty hard to see!) and buy each prize for just 25L.  I grabbed the Astra Pants and Sandra top which look super cute together for my jaunt out into the wild.  Aren’t they nice?

Gold Medal

Gold Medal
There’s something about golden boots that makes me feel like I am in charge of pretty much anything.  Anyone who can wear gold boots and simultaneously not take themselves too seriously has life pretty much figured out, I’d say.  If you’re wearing them without a hint of cheek, then more power to you, but I am not that person.  In the end, whether you take yourself seriously wearing them or not, you do have to admit that they look damn good.

Back to FaMESHed!
