A Happy Ending for Your Monday

Sea Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday in my post {HERE}, I told you about a free outfit and free earrings.  Well, today the pupster and I are back with a second pairing of a free frock and free baubles.  Now that’s a way to make Monday happier for sure!  Unfortunately, the free dress has been replaced with another gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, which is a butterfly top.

Blossoms Galore

Summer blooms abound on the latest gift from Sweet Willows for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With slender straps, a plunging neckline and dramatically low cut back and sides, this frock is most definitely for warm summer days.  You’ll be free to soak in the sunshine and have your skin caressed by warm summer breezes with this mini dress.  Delicate white flowers scattered across a solid color background lend a cheery vibe to the outfit.  I chose a sky blue fabric, but with the included HUD, you could also opt for pink, yellow, green or purple, so it’s quite flexible.  You’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty while wearing it.  To add this saucy little number to your inventory, activate your Fab Free group tag (it’s totally free to join!), teleport to the shop and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Island Girl

Island Girl

Ripley and I returned to The Free Dove to search for the perfect finishing touch, and spotted just the right earrings at the Rebel Hope display.  The Island Girl baubles come in either the tan option that I am wearing in my photo or a green version.  The beads are the same; it’s just the cording that is different.  Speaking of the beads, it’s almost like they were made to coordinate with my new dress!  Blue-green glass beads sit atop round brownish ones decorated with white blossoms, which echo the pattern on the mini.  Best of all, these earrings are also free.  You just need to be a member of The Free Dove group (which is also free to join).

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Harvest Love

FabFree: Harvest Love

Hi there Fabulouses!

There are several things that I love about fall fashion, but one of them is sweater dresses!  I found an amazing sweater dress at this round of Epiphany that I wanted to tell you about 😉

Coed Sweater Dress

The Coed Sweater Dress by Paper Arrow comes in Maitreya and Hourglass and there are 30 different colours to play for at just 50L a pull.  The best part about this offer is that you’ll get a dress in every try!  There are no rares or other pieces, just amazing sweater dresses at 50L each!  I know some people shy away from gacha machines because they are a game of chance, however there is a 100% chance of you getting a great sweater dress in this machine – go play it!

Do You Remember?

Do You Remember?
Do you remember drive in movie theatres? Those were the best. If I could pick one retro bit of nostalgia to have a comeback, that would be it.

In my blog post today I am here to tell you where to get this smokin hot leather jacket /blouse combo for next to nothing!

RICIELLI, Of Course!

Ricielli is where you can find the Kirsten Jacket w/ Blouse for 15L as #1 in their instore Easter Hunt.  There are 20 hidden easter egg hunt icons hidden in the store all clearly marked by name (and not very tricky to find!!).

I have included the prize preview below so that you can see the prizes before you pick up the eggs, and an example of the hunt icon you seek!  I love hunts like this with prize previews, especially if there is a small fee because then you are not wasting your time looking for prizes you aren’t interested in and have only paid for the eggs you want! (I wanted almost all of them – they are fantastic lol)

Easter Hunt 2018!

Catching My Breath

FreedoveRebelHope
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂

January tends to be a pretty slow month for gifts in Second Life, making our work here at FabFree a little more tricky… but it is an excellent opportunity for us to catch our breath and revisit shops and events that may have been neglected over the holiday rush.  There are plenty of wonderful gifts out there, we just need to find them!

A Vision In Blue… Or Red

This beautiful navy blue floor length gown is one of my recent finds at The Free Dove by !Rebel Hope.  It comes in XXS-L standard mesh sizes and includes the alpha layers as well as an additional red version of the dress too…  but speaking of Christmas – I’m tired of wearing red at the moment, so I went with the blue :).  The packaging says it was released in 2017, but I have no idea how I missed this stunning find!  The Free Dove group is free to join.  Have a look around and see what else you can find!

Not All Stars Belong to the Sky

Daydreaming
Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued exploring the SL14B Community Celebration, and have three more gifties to share with you to brighten up the beginning of your week.

Time for a New Hairdo

I visited the salon in RL over the weekend, and it’s kind of funny how I followed suit in SL as well.  My new hairstyle is courtesy of Mina Hair, one of my go-to hair designers.  The Myrtle hair has side-swept bangs which tuck into a woven pattern in the back that I would love to duplicate in RL.  I really like the way the hair leaves my shoulders bare in the front, except for just a few stray wisps.  The package includes both a materials and non-materials version of the tresses, and an Essentials color pack with 9 options.  Best of all, the Myrtle hair is completely free. Simply teleport to the Mina salon and click the vendor.

A Sweet Little Tank

My blue and white tank from ISON is one of my favorite fabulous finds.  With delicate shoulder straps and laces in the front, this free cropped shirt is perfect for warm summer days.  If blue and white stripes aren’t your style, the top includes a texture change HUD with a pretty solid olive green option, or a cheery yellow print.  I opted for the more nautical-looking pattern to coordinate with my anklet (more on that in a moment).  I love that the designer included three choices for this gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Maitreya
    • Hourglass
    • Physique

Starfish Anklet

The Finishing Touch

I chose to accessorize my casual outfit with one more free present from !Rebel Hope Designs.  The Starfish Beach Anklet features a golden, five-armed sea creature flanked by three glistening beads, all suspended from a silver chain.  It can sometimes be hard to get anklets to fit properly depending on the style of foot you are wearing, but there is an unrigged, resizable anklet tucked inside the gift box, as well as versions for high and flat Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet.  All I had to do was add the jewelry to my avatar, and it fit my Slink flat foot perfectly with no adjusting necessary.

I hope you find the time to visit the SL14B Shopping event.  There are so many bargains and wonderful gifts just awaiting discovery.  It was busy, and I needed to devote time to explore, but came away so happy with the gifts I received and purchases I made.  The event runs until June 26th.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

T – 2 Days

Snapshot_004

Hey FabFree! As you can see my puppy made it home safe and sound after his walkabout to Serena’s and then his untimely abduction by Carson.  He’s exhausted poor thing, not even enough energy to play with his favourite ball, but I made him pose for the photo so you could see he was returned safely!  I’m sure once he wakes up, he’ll be ready for another adventure.  Who knows where he will wind up this afternoon!

Running Out of Advent Time!

There is only a couple more days to take advantage of all of the free gifts in the Kittycats Advent Calendar and if you haven’t been by, you can head down there and pick up all of the previous days.  This calendar is filled with sometimes multiple gifts each day by different designers across the grid.  Now…  I can’t remember which day I got this awesome gift by Rebel Hope, but I wanted to share the news with you so you know it’s in there … somewhere!  This gift by Rebel Hope includes the dress and boots shown as well as a headband and a hat (not shown).

Dress & Boot Sizes:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

It’s the Truth, I tell you!

My hairstyle today is courtesy of Truth who put their Irena and Irenka hairstyles under the holiday Pompom hats and sent them out to the inworld Truth group.  This is similar to the previous hair gift that Sheidey has been showing off in her posts [HERE], and [HERE], but with a holiday pom pom hat ;).  A full selection of colour huds for hair and texture change for the hat is included.

Also in Truth  group notices right now, you’ll find the Bangs Collection which is a great way to add a little versatility to any of your Truth hair!  I am wearing the Swept Right Narrow bangs with my Irenka hair today and it really changed up the look.  There are several different types of bangs (or fringe as some of you around the world call it) and as like the PomPom Hat gift, there is a full selection of colour huds!  I can’t wait to try it with the other kajillion Truth hairstyles I have been collecting.  It will be like new hair all over again!  There is a fee of 350L to join currently, but it’s worth it!

Winter Decor

Now this bench with my little squirrel friend is another one of the Le Poppycock Animal Friends  poses from the gacha offering at The Liason Collaborative (50L per play), but also… sitting beside the bench you’ll see a very nice winter décor piece by Dixie Dandelion called Pilling Lantern & Gulls w/ Shell that I picked up for 10L at The Wash Cart Sale.  This item is transferrable so that you can even gift it to a friend if you like!

Don’t Dilly Dally

I am drenched in deals today!

I found my had to have dress at the Flawless Frightful & Delightful Cart Sale & Hunt which runs thru the end of the month. Its from the More Than Ever cart and is their Exclusive item (all the carts have one) for the event. Spiders in the Dark Dress is specially priced at 50L. There is also a hunt going on most carts have a pumpkin for FREE on them with all sorts of types of gifts from clothes, accessories and skins. So grab those pumpkins for some treats. I ran across my fabulous mesh Halloween witch hat with pumkins & spiders on the Marketplace for FREE and it has a color change hud. It has great detailing and this color went perfect with the dress. My delicate Celebration ring with color hud is from Chop Zuey and is a generous FREE for all no group to join gift. It includes both a woman and men ring and with a quick edit I got it to work on my slink hands. Over at the Kustom9 event which runs thru November 10th its their birthday and many of the stalls have out gifts. All gifts are priced 9L but are well worth more just like these shoes from N-core. The Isis coral shoes wit slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP and N-core X-treme high feet. My hair is also from Kustom9. It is the gift from Mithral Apothecary. You get this lovely Ergot mesh hair in regular and busty.

You see the Mirthal Ergot hair from Kustom9 here again, just a lovely mesh blonde everyday hair well worth 9L. My Regina Salve bracelet with color hud is another FREE to all gift from Chop Zuey, no group to join. You get both right and left bracelets. My elegant Malibu Mesh Maxi Dress Pack is another FREE to all gift this time from Rebel Hope. You get this mesh dress in 11 different colors. I picked the peachy to show you as it goes with my new N-core shoes.

I am off to follow a lead on some more freebies to bring your way shortly!

Lets enjoy the rest of the month and the time we have. FabFree should be remembered fondly, dry those tears.

Mother’s Day in Diamonds, Pearls, and Glitter

It’s Mother’s Day here in the U.S., and I’m just hanging out, waiting for my family to start the lovely garden tea party they’ve planned in my honor. Ok, not really. My RL family plans to buy me a pizza later (I refuse to cook on Mother’s Day), so in the meantime, I’m visiting this gorgeous art installation at LEA23, Inside Art, Through Wonderland. It’s based on the Alice in Wonderland theme, but is unlike any other Alice installations I’ve seen recently. You really must visit, and if you’re into photography, check out the rules for the photo contest at the landing spot. You have until 30 June to enter.

rebel9_001f

What does one wear to a tea party? Well, I’ve selected this lovely, mesh maxi-dress, a free Mother’s Day gift from !Rebel Hope. Their mesh is always exquisite, and this dress is no exception; it fits and moves perfectly, and I love the racerback straps in the back. It comes with the Pearl and Diamond jewelry you see here, as well as the corsage. And what mom doesn’t need a corsage on Mother’s Day? 🙂

rebel11_001f

I was so surprised this morning when I opened my [mock] Cosmetics group notices and found not one, not two, but FIVE different nail applier HUDS for Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands! I’m wearing OMFG Glitter, a dark fuschia glittery nail. The [mock] group is 250L to join, but I can’t tell you enough how wonderfully generous Mockie is with her group members. Yes, I’m getting seriously addicted to these nail appliers, and I hope many designers keep cranking them out! 😀

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you moms and moms-to-be out there! It truly is the hardest, most amazing job you’ll ever love. ♥
