Over It


Over It

Finally the weather outside made me want to put on a jacket rather than lift my hair off the back of my neck. It has been an unusually cool day, even for September. Love and Aline may be clinging to summer, but I don’t mind telling you I’m over it. Give me crisp cool air, fall leaves, bonfires, and all the deliciousness that summer is just too hot for. I also love a good fall wardrobe which wouldn’t be complete without a good jacket. The jacket I’m wearing is part of a group gift newly available at Star Sugar. While picking up my new favorite jacket, I also found a handful of free gifts at Star Sugar, one of which was this cute start studded bag. Needless to say I couldn’t resist. For more about each of these fantastic finds, keep reading, or you can scroll to the credits.

Star Sugar

First, the initial thing that drew me to this jacket by Star Sugar were the little bats. I love them! That said, the jacket is a group gift at Star Sugar, along with a matching skirt which I did not wear. The Jacket comes in several pastel colors, all with black trim and little black bats around the bottom. The skirt and jacket are fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Star Sugar group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available including this one recently blogged by Juli. Below is a copy of the vendor photo so you can see the cute buttoned skirt and the sweet pastel colors the jacket comes in.

Babe Fit

As I mentioned, there are several free gifts that do not require a group tag at Star Sugar. The gift that caught my eye the most was this cool little star studded bag. This freebie has a hold pose that actually worked with my mixed priority AO. Additionally the free bag comes in the black version shown, as well as yellow, blue, green, pink, and white. Definitely pick this one up!

Here is What I am Wearing:

Let’s Get Mystical


Bewitching

“Let’s get mystical, mystical, I wanna get mystical. Let’s get into mystical… “

Okay that’s not really how the song goes but it was kinda fun to sing it that way! Why am I changing the lyrics to an Olivia Newton John song? The Mystical Market of course! Don’t try to understand my pretzel logic, it’ll only confuse you more. The point of all this silliness is there happens to be a 5 linden hunt happening at Mystical Market. There are little black cauldrons full of witchy prizes scattered around the area. For this post I picked up 2 of the many 5-linden hunt prizes, the prize from WitchCraft and the prize from LOVE. Let’s get mystical.

WitchCraft

The black lace-trimmed dress I’m wearing is the 5 linden hunt prize by WitchCraft at Mystical Market. The dress comes in a several sizes and has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices.

Sizes Include: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

LOVE

The pretty floral wall is part of the 5 linden hunt prize by LOVE at Mystical Market. This gift includes a pack of pretty floral walls that remind me of climbing flowering vines. They come in several colors with 3 versions each, and have little twinkle lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

There aren’t really any hints for these hunt prizes, however I can tell you that the cauldrons you’ll be looking for aren’t often hidden as much as they are settled in and around the landscape. Some are even hiding right in plain sight!

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Summer Hairplay – Chinook – Ombre
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Dress – [WitchCraft] Willow dress – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market
Manicure – {WitchCraft} Midnight Nails + Polish – Currently @Mystial Market
Cat – –Pixicat– Bastet.Sphynx RARE
Floral Wall – LOVE – Tall Wall Foliage Pack – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market

Beyond Time


Beyond Time

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but now and then I could use some fantasy and whimsy in my life, especially when Second Life makes it so easy. The above photo was completely inspired by the Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. The floral jewelry set is their free Women’s Stuff Hunt gift, and I’m super excited to share it with you. The pose used is another freebie, it’s part of the Lyrium gift at the Pose Fair. Keep reading for all the information and details.

Yes, the full jewelry set is a free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. Find the little red tshirt, and pay it 0 linden, and the hunt prize will be delivered to you. This gorgeous set includes the earpiece for both ears, headband, and necklace, all with a color change hud that has quite a few color options for the flowers, three choices for the headband, and the option to pick gold or silver for the metal bits.
Ohemo - Myranflower set (SL-Womenstuff hunt May 2019)

If you haven’t made your way to the Pose Fair yet, I highly suggest you go. Along with the pose used in the above photo, Lyrium has 2 full sets of poses as a free gift to the Pose Fair group members. The group is free to join. The part I like the most (aside from the nicely done poses for free!) is that the poses also come in a hud. This means you can wear the pose hud and cycle through the poses without having to rez a pose ball or dig through your inventory. There are 5 poses in this “Heavenly” set, with mirrored versions for each. Additionally, there is a second set of poses with this gift called “Falling.” Seriously, do not miss out on this awesome gift!

On the road again

FabFree: On the road again
Hello there Fabulouses!  From February 7th-February 17th, the XOXO Hunt is on!  The XOXO Hunt is a little different than a normal SL hunt.  You can visit participating stores and click their love potion bottle icons (some of which are hidden, and some are in plain sight) to see if you win the prize or if you have to come back the next day and try again.  If you just can’t wait for your prize, you can purchase it for 50L instead.  Here’s a prize preview:  https://xoxohunt.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/xoxo-2019-its-on/

XOXO At Pixicat

The XOXO Hunt prize at Pixicat is the Breeze Tunic and it comes with a texture change HUD that offers white, back and red options.  I put a travelling boho spin on it with some bell bottom jeans, but I can see this beautiful piece going in so many different fashion directions!  Have fun with it 🙂

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Hey There Fab Free! I don’t know about you guys, but some of my best conversations have been with my cat.

The Belle Epoque group is just 10 linden to join and there are multiple group gifts available.

Grape Soda and a Bear Skin Rug

Grape Soda
Oh Hi There Fab Free! Don’t mind me, I’m just daydreaming about The Joker and Harley Quinn. Am I the only one who swooned a little when in the Suicide Squad movie Joker told Harley he had grape soda and a bear skin rug waiting!? Okay, maybe I swooned a lot.  All comic book fantasies aside, I do have some fabulous free group gifts to share with you, and thanks to my sweet friend Grace, I’m gonna enjoy this grape soda.

The Skin – The sweet face Pru has is all thanks to the Kamala group gift head applier from Stix. I think the pink lips are a sweet touch. The Kamala applier is also brow-less so you can rock the no-brows alien look, or you can wear a brow applier of your choice. I am partial to the Just Magnetized brows myself. This free group gift at Stix comes with an Omega head applier in all the Stix skin tones, even the fantasy ones. Pru is wearing the “Puddin'” tone. There’s also a shape, and a set of system layer base skins. To get your copy, head over to Stix, and make sure you wear your PixyStix group tag. PixyStix is the store group, and it is free to join at this time.

The Lingerie – Okay I won’t reiterate the fact that I’m a lingerie junkie. I’ll just tell you the free group gift by MH Unique at the Avangarde Event is so sweet and sexy. I love the girly bow details. This free group gift comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud with 10 color choices. I’ve added the original ad for this Avangarde Event group gift below so you can get a better look. For this gift you’ll need to join the Avangarde Event group which is free to join.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Phyisque, Hourglass)

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

.miss chelsea. judi top - group gift out now!

The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to join, but on the desk you’ll find several past group gifts still available, many of which shown here on FabFree!

A Moment to Reflect

A Moment to Reflect

Hello, fab readers! So much is going on in the world right now that I needed a moment to sit and reflect. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irma right now, and to those of you who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I have family in Florida, so we are anxiously waiting and watching the storm’s progress.

A new group and a new gift

My adorable shirt is the latest group gift from Fashionably Dead. The Cropped Collar Tank is sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with a fatpack of 4 different patterns for each. I’m wearing the one on the bottom right, which is actually quite a bit bluer than it appears in the HUD.

fdauggift

Fashionably Dead has a new in-world group which is currently free to join but will cost 100L after September 25th. They also have a new mainstore on the Lula sim, so be sure to update your landmarks!

Stay safe out there! ❤
