West Coast Dreaming

West Coast Dreaming

Well, I’ve found my way back to the beach, though this time I’m thinking about the West Coast.  There’s something refreshing and somewhat unexpected (at least for me) to head off in a car and drive for seven days until I see mountains.  Then, beyond them, large swathes of driftwood-covered beaches, tall pines, and fresh air.  It’s like all the fun of sun-baked beaches without the possibility of becoming a straight-up lobster.

Happy Anniversary!

LSR are celebrating their anniversary right now, and they happen to have a new group gift.  This (rather skimpy) top and skirt can be worn separately and come with loads of different tie-dyed options (and other!) in the HUD.  To get yours, plus the bajillions of other gifts and lucky board prizes, just join the LSR group for 99L and head upstairs to their gift area.  You’ll have a whole new wardrobe in no time!

There are not one, but two new group gifts at COCO, and they’ll put you in the mood to get some stuff done.  Well, they put me in the mood to at the very least!  Anyway, the COCO group is free to join, and you’ll find this really nicely made top and cardi (with attached tie) as well as the really lovely split hem pants which are just so interesting and different (and well made!).  There are plenty of other awesome gifts too that are great for every day wear.

I Believe

I Believe
I’ve long been a fan of the Witchwood sim and it’s two polar opposite shops – flowy, hippie, boho Petite Mort and dark, goth, witchy Oubliette. If you haven’t wandered Witchwood you honestly need to. And while you’re there you can join the free combo group for both stores that’ll let you take advantage of a shelf of free group gifts and free lucky boards in each!

Blushing

Do you ever just come across something and you can’t believe that it’s made so entirely perfectly? That’s how I feel about this top. Perfection. The way it hangs, the color, the texturing, all the little details – perfection. And do you know what’s even better? It was a free lucky board prize at Petite Mort. There are four free lucky boards at Petite Mort and four more at Oubliette, so you can scamper back and forth and keep an eye on both at the same time. So much goodness. So. Much. The blouse comes in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

All you’ve gotta do is join that free Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group that we talked about earlier and wait for your letter! May the odds be ever in your favor.

Unexpected Freebie

When you’ve got an inventory like mine, just getting dressed is bound to include some freebies! I got it in my head that a denim skirt would be perfect for this look and started trying on options from my inventory. Wouldn’t you know it, this flowy sweet little number that I settled on just so happens to be a Blueberry group gift. It’s not new but it is so cute and well made. So I guess this is a reminder to all of us to not forget about the older stuff, because newer is not always better! The Blueberry group is only 20L to join and this gift includes a really great HUD of color and belt options, plus sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

Into the Woods, Again

Into the Woods, Again

Time to head out into the forest to commune with nature and all that jazz.  I love nothing more than the filtering of sunlight through leaves.  It seems to give me a sense of connection to the magic that is indeed the lifeblood of us all.  All this deep, pensive thought-provoking stuff to say “look I got a free dress!”.  Ha, I’m so predictable!

Back to Belle

There’s a new FabFree group gift over at Belle Epoque, and I am in love with it!  I sing this refrain of “ooh!  Belle Epoque” so often, I’m sure I must have it on repeat on a sound recorder in my pocket, but that doesn’t make it any less true.  Always so fun and pretty!  This lovely green gown fits both Maitreya and Legacy bodies, and is completely FREE when you join our free group.  Doesn’t get much prettier than that!

Now back to my forest romping!

New Beginning

Starting the New Year off right is important, I say.  Start it happy, start it kind, start it with a killer dress!

Dress it Up

This dress with a killer dip in the back is perfect for getting 2022 underway!  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and you can also change the colour of the cuffs.  To get yours, head on over to LSR and head over to their massive gift section where you can pick up this gown and loads and loads of other gifts (their lucky board section is enormous).  Just join the group for 99L and then click on the board on the back wall.

Sizes

  • Legacy

Top it Off

My fun little cat-inspired headband (complete with tinsel stars!) is a free group gift at Mewsery.  Join their group for free, and click on the board – all yours!

One Last Time

One Last Time

New Year’s Eve rattles onward.  It’s not officially midnight SLT yet, so let’s keep the party going with a bunch of awesome free gifts!

Stop 1

Ok, how amazing is this gown?  I’ve been bowled away with all the amazing sparkly gowns and dresses I’ve amassed this holiday season, and this one is an excellent addition to my collection.  You’ll be able to pick this beautiful dress up over at Seniha in their group gift section.  It sparkles! It shines!  It comes in a full fatpack of colours…and it’s free!  Just join the free Seniha group and click on the vendor.  There are some really amazing gifts to grab by joining this group.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Stop 2

My sparkler is lighting up the darkness rather pleasantly, and it’s lots of fun to walk around with.  I picked it up over at OMY.  There are two versions in the box – one with just plain sparkles, and another that does some cute trails as you walk around.  It’s free for everyone, no need to join a group.  But it will be gone soon – so go pick it up tonight!

Stop 3

One of my faves, Ishiku, has a fun little group gift for members of their free to join group as well – this 2022 headband that is easy to reposition and place anywhere you like.  I believe the ad even has it handheld if you want to take some pictures that are just a bit different.  Dunno how long this one will be out, so head on over to Ishiku as soon as you can.

All the best in 2022, my dear FabFree readers!  I hope you all look on the bright side, appreciate the little things, dance more, and never forget how amazing Second Life really is.

Big Plans

Big Plans

Thank goodness it’s the weekend, Fab Fam!  I was starting to go a bit cray cray out there!  I plan on taking some time to head off to some area of natural beauty, take some pictures and generally forget about everything that went down during the week.  Happily, along with my trusty camera I also have my trusty freebies!

Dress Me Up

I’m always happy for a new dress, and this one is quite cozy and versatile.  It’s the latest group gift at BDR, and I super love it.  It comes with a very extensive HUD that includes some gorgeous patterns for the holidays, but also plenty of solids in case you’re not quite ready for all that yet.  The BDR group is free to join, and there are so many awesome gifts there to pick up!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Hourglass

Falling into Place

Today’s awesome deal is 350L of free store credit at FAGA!  I bought this lovely hairstyle there by joining the group for free (it’s temporarily free to join), and then clicking on the big sign in the middle of the store which sent me 350L in store credit.  I then found a style that called to me, and bought it with said 350L!  How yummy is that?  This store credit is set to expire on the 29th, so I suggest you buy while you’re there so you don’t forget about it!

Have a fantastic weekend, FabFree!

No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy haunting hunting!
