Happy Birthday, Second Life!

Happy Birthday, Second Life!

Oh my giddy aunt, FabFree.  I am pretty much exhausted after my foray to SL18B, which opens to the public today!  Last time I was at this event (last year) I remember being in awe at the size of it.  Well, I almost fell over when I saw that the event has grown even further, with 16 regions to explore, and over 300 gifts to pick up (I KNOW!).  I needed to head off somewhere quiet after all that collecting and unboxing… but boy oh boy was it worth it!

Happy Birthday SL!

As you know, SL18B is a celebration of all things Second Life.  This little magical virtual world we all inhabit is a haven of things we get to do that we may not be able to in RL, and for that I’ll always be grateful.  The shopping section of SL18B is MASSIVE, so you may want to do it in stages.  I was the crazy person who did it all at once, and here are all my favourite things that I picked up – they’re all free, and there is no group join required to get the goodies.  You’ll find that the links below will tp you directly to the stalls where I picked up the gifts.

  • FREE Dress by Pixicat sized for Maitreya Flat, Hourglass, Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy & Legacy Perky
  • FREE Shoes by Gos Boutique sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE Hair by Ade in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE Eyeshadow by Alaskametro with an Omega applier

SL18B is running until July 6th, so don’t despair if you can’t get in right away (it is QUITE busy).

Phew, I’m bushed!

The Frostbite Was Worth It!

The Frostbite Was Worth It!

Right, I know I was at the beach experiencing Christmas the Southern Hemisphere way yesterday, but suddenly I’m in the mood for wintry climes and hot drinks.  As per usual, I’m not really dressed for the weather, but when you look this cute, how can you possibly care about a bit of frostbite?

FaMESHed Goodness!

Oh man…this month’s round of FaMESHed will have you Fa-la-la-la-la-ing with joy!  There are SO MANY awesome gifts that your head just might start spinning.  Join their free group, and you’ll find a pretty gift box outside each booth.  It’s fairly busy since it just opened, but don’t despair!  You’ll get in!  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE Sweater by Pixicat sized for Freya, Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass in three colours
  • FREE Skirt by Safira sized for Freya, Isis, Legacy and Maitreya (also comes in a version with a pretty bow on the back)
  • FREE Shoes by Gos Boutique sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink

Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Oh Paris- the City of Love!

Parisian Look

Happy day-before-Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!

Today, my post is inspired by the one place on earth where it is the season of love and romance all year- Paris! I put together this Parisian look by combining some of the free gifts I collected at the Valentine’s Shop and Hop! You can go there, collect the goodies and walk out looking like you stepped out of France! I may look like a Parisian now, but the only French thing about me is my love of baguette and brie cheese. Aside from that, however, these items are super cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The Free Hair and Beret

Perhaps what tops off this outfit is the Beret Accessory included in this free hair which you can get at Vanity Hair’s booth at the Shop & Hop. The hair is called “Winter is Coming” and it includes a colour change HUD and a tinting HUD which allows you to change the hair and the hat to any colour. You can find the Vanity Hair booth in the Tinseled sim.

A Cute Set from Pixicat

The top and shorts I am wearing is the lovely gift from Pixicat- called “soft set” in red stripes. It’s sort of artsy and I feel like it matches the hair super well! Get the free gift from Pixicat at the Aurelian sim of the Shop and Hop.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass & Physique

A Pearl and Heart Crystal Necklace

What says love and romance more than pearls and crystal hearts? This gift from Supernatural, the “Kyary Necklace” will be the best gift to yourself for this Valentine’s! The necklace can be found in the Tinseled sim of the Shop and Hop.

Have a fun Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!
xx

Hopeful Romantic

Hopeful Romantic

I often hear the phrase “Hopeless Romantic” and this time of year, when we are nearing Valentine’s Day I would rather think of myself and others as “Hopeful Romantics.” The world needs romance. The latest group gift at Dead Dollz is this romantic little dress, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day. These letters, books, and flowers adding to the romantic setting is a free Lucky Letter Board prize décor set at Tentacio. Keep reading for details about each of these finds, and get all the credits at the end.

Dead Dollz

I love it when Dead Dollz has a new group gift. The gifts are always beautiful, and this dress is definitely that. It includes a color change hud that lets you pick the color for the dress and the belt. There are seven colors to choose from ranging from white to red, with several pink choices in-between. The dress comes fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden.

Tenatcio

Not too long ago I had fun with one of the free Lucky Letter Board prizes at Tentacio for my “Healthy Life” post. This time I am happy to share with you another free Lucky Board prize from Tentacio. This prize is the “Flower Memories” décor set, and it includes the envelope with flowers, the scattered letters and book, and the open book with flowers and scattered petals. Each of these lovely décor items is copy and can be resized. There’s no group required to participate in the Lucky Boards at Tentacio, so this set is completely free you just have to wait for your letter to come up.
