Thankful for Treats

Thankful for Treats

Happy Thanksgiving FabFree!  Yep, up here in the wilds of Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving in October.  Today I’m giving thanks for all sorts of things.  My health, my family, my friends, and of course you, dear readers!  It’s nice to know that I have a place where I can come to ramble about my inner musings and someone is sure to read.  Thanks for being here, and thanks for giving us all the chance to be even a little part of your lives!

Bone Dry

I’m looking a bit Halloweeny for Thanksgiving, but I’m sure you’ll all forgive me.  There are so many awesome gifts, hunts and events going on right now that we’re hard pressed to keep up here on the blog!  My dress comes courtesy of 28LA.  Isn’t it cool?  I got it by searching for the pumpkins at the 2MUCH event.  There are a few hanging around (they’re not TOO hard to find!) and if you pay 10L for them, you’ll get the contents.  Not a bad deal, if you ask me!

Trick or Treat!

Trick or Treat Lane has taken off, and every year I am reminded how much fun this event is!  I love the decor, there are awesome free gifts, and an eensy weensy bit of hunting that isn’t too taxing.  You’ll note that every stall has a gift out front, but at some you’ll find a little ghost has stolen the gift and hidden it somewhere inside the designer’s stall.  Good fun to be had!  Today, I’m showing off the gifts from Petrichor (this bento hold cookie) and Old World (the cat, cauldron, pumpkins and broomstick at my feet).  They’re both free, and no group join is required.  Sweet!

What else will you find at Trick or Treat Lane?

Happy Turkey Day, Fellow Canucks!  Stay Safe!

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.

Accessorize Your Fantasy!

Roleplay and fantasy have always been a huge part of my Second Life experience, and truly great roleplay outfits are usually defined by their accessories. So! This accessories post is all about accessories for different types of roleplay or fantasies!

Accessories Day Post Picture 1

I put together this whimsical outfit with a FREE soft yellow dress by antielle. which I found on the marketplace. It might be new to some of you as it hasn’t been blogged in a while, but some time back, Tiana Omizu showed the dress HERE. It’s a lovely mesh little number in a soft yellow and all the standard sizes. But we all know that a dress is just a dress unless you add the right details. Accessorize!

To add my fantasy feel to this dress I donned this amazing Coral Witch Headress in gold (there are five colors in the Marketplace pack) from Aii ~ The Ugly and the Beautiful. The 5-pack of colors is only 10L and these headresses are modifiable as well!

My Earcuffs are by PoshTale and are a FREE Marketplace gift. These are colorchange with three color choices. I went with the gold, but you could chose red or blue. They fit perfectly over human shaped ears to add an elven and fantasy feel.

Hair – Magika – Now
Dress – antielle. Marin Magique Sunny! Gift (0L/FREE on the Marketplace/ First shown HERE by Tiana Omizu)
Earcuffs – PoshTale – Eru EarCuffs (0L/FREE on the Marketplace)

Sometimes roleplay or fantasies go a bit darker… for those days (or nights!) I found a great one stop shop for you. Tabou! Here you can pick up three group gifts sure to make for some steamy fantasy roleplay. Currently the Tabou Group is FREE to join and you can pick up this blindfold, septum nose piercing and bracelet as FREE gifts. I did edit the bracelet by moving it up to make an armlet, as it’s modifiable. So if you have a bit of editing skills, I imagine you could make it into an anklet or other versatile piece!

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Exile – Temptation Waits
Bra – {Luxuria} Naughty Rose in Black
Blind Fold – Tabou – Blind Love – Bloody (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)
Septum Piercing – Tabou – Bublles septum – copper (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)
Armlet – Tabou – My Holiday Hand (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)

Accessories Day Post Picture 3_001

I’ve always thought that Greek and Romanesque roleplay looked lovely and inviting. The feel of it to me is divine! I put on a simple silk as my base, but that is never enough to give you the proper look. To get the look I wanted, I finished off this silk with two great accessories from two amazing stores.

First, stop by Luas Urban Style. My Owl Jewel Set is a FREE lucky letter board available to Luas group members. The group is FREE to join. It includes the necklace and earrings shown above, as well as a ring (not shown).

I picked up the bold Gadhra Metals necklace from Salt & Pepper. It is their most recent group gift. The gift is FREE with group membership. The group is 100L to join but the frequent, quality gifts make it well worth joining. This was a set which included matching earrings as well (not shown), and the set is also color change for several metal choices.

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Truth – Leticia
Outfit – Soedara – Venustas Togulae 2 in White

Sometimes we all need something a little whimsical and innocent. Remember when the tooth-fairy was real and we still believed in unicorns? I love this FREE February Group gift from [MUSE] NSP Florals. The little Unicorn Daisy is sweet as can be. The group is 75L to join, but with great monthly offers like this, it is worth the investment.

Accessories Day Post Picture 5

To wrap up, we all have our wild side! I began my look by picking out this outfit called Antiope by Sweet Lies from the Marketplace. It is only 59L and modifiable for an easy fit. It has a feel that is perfect for lots of roleplay settings, which I love!

To give it a finishing touch, I added another Marketplace item: a 1L gift from Old World — this Medieval Fish Bone Necklace. The Necklace has all the terrific details we know and love Old World for, and for the sweet little price of 1L, it is a terrific touch to finish off a wild look.

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Exile – One Way or Another
Outfit – Sweet Lies – Antiope Brown Outfit (59L on the Marketplace)
Necklace – Old World – Medieval Necklace Fish Bone (1L on the Marketplace)

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.
