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!

Dress Code

Dress Code

It’s time to hit the books!  September always brings the excitement of back to school, new pencils, new activities and new friends.  I love the whole back to school vibe, though it seems I’m wearing a little less than I most likely should in a classroom setting…hmmm…

Dream On

My somewhat small top and skirt (get out your rulers!) are lucky board prizes that I picked up over at Dreams Store.  They’ve got quite a few cute mix and match items up on the wall, so you’re sure to find a nice outfit with just a bit of patience.  The tube top comes in black, and the skirt comes with 20 different colours to choose from in the HUD.  To get your own, join the Dreams Store group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

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

Until my next post,

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

The Gumption

The Gumption

I wish there was a time in RL in which I could get away with wearing a skintight jumpsuit.  It’s such a like…statement, that I’m sure would never be something that held up in my day to day doings.  Imagine going to the gas station in it… or perhaps picking  up some groceries, or you know – going to the library.   I don’t know that I have the gumption to pull it off, but happily for me, my inworld counterpart has all the gumption I need.  She is happy to flaunt her swerves and curves in all sorts of goodies!

Let Them Eat Cake

Alright, now that I’ve mused about the non-feasibility of madcap inworld clothing in real life, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.  Freebies!  It’s the Cakeday event’s anniversary, and that means lots of freebies.  Just join the free group, and click on the gift boxes at each stall for an inordinate amount of free gifts.  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE jumpsuit by Queenz sized for Ebody Curvy, Freya, Kupra Bimbo, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE hair by Made in Tokyo (Flexi hair pony – worn with my hairbase)
  • FREE earrings by Rossi in both silver and gold options
  • FREE pose by Stun Poses

There’s so so so much more at the event, I can’t impress upon you how long you’ll be unpacking!  Cakeday just opened on the 13th, so you still have a while to check it out.

Time to own your look, FabFree!

Nugs Not Drugs

Nugs Not Drugs

I must confess that I have a penchant for chicken nuggets.  To be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t enjoy them.  Dipped in a bit of barbecue sauce… le sigh!  Wait, wasn’t I supposed to be discussing freebies?  Oh right!

At Addams

There’s a little hidden (ish) gift at Addams right now that will only be around for this weekend!  They have an outfit out on discount at the moment, and if you look at the ad you’ll see there’s also a gift for members of the Addams VIP group.  The Addams group is only 5L to join, and there are plenty of group gifts to pick up.  This little bralette comes in both see-through and opaque versions, with plenty of lovely colours in the HUD.  Don’t wait too long, the gift is really only supposed to be around this weekend.  Take a peek at the photo below to see where to click to get your gift.

Sizes

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

 

And Some Vanilla

The sweet little choker I’ve got on is a free gift over at Vanilla Bae.  No need to join a group to get this little gift, just click on the box and buy for 0L.  You’ll find this gift located on a little table by the events boards.  There are plenty of colours in the HUD, and it comes sized for Kupra, Legacy and Maitreya as well as an unrigged option.

Hmm… sweet & sour or barbecue?

Decisions!

On the Equality of Cats

Coming Soon

Oh, I love cats. I love dogs just as much but for some reason I feel like I’m always fighting for the rights of cats. How can you not love them? They’re so loveable and cute. They’re definitely equal to dogs! Well, here I am in my little kitty palace enjoying company with my favourite fur balls! I’ll show you some freebies and deals from my look today too!

Down the Rabbit Hole

You can get a lot of great gifts at Down The Rabbit Hole, and it’s only open till July 20th. Go over there while you still can and grabbed all the Alice in Wonderland themed gifts! All the gifts are free with the free group. I’m wearing the free gift from Ari-Pari, which is a gorgeous dress in 3 rose pattern textures. 

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

I even picked up a cat and tails set at the event that turned me into a Chesire cat, so now I can fit in with my furry friends. 

75L Boots @ Reign

The other deal I want to mention this morning are a 75L fatpack of the Reignberry Rome Boots at Reign. I am not sure how long these boots are available for this, but they are really cute and I believe they match some outfits over at Blueberry. I was tipped off about this deal from a comment by FabFree reader chericolette on Aline’s post here, so thanks for the tip, chericolette! I never would have found this deal without her, and these shoes are gorgeous. I think this deal will be going away soon, so rush over to Reign and grab this great deal before it’s gone.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

Rained Out

Rained Out
The clouds are gathering ominously overhead, and I feel like my afternoon tea party is going to be awash with…water.  Though the heavens may be about to open up, I’ve got a plan B on the go where we move all our fresh dainties to the indoors to preserve our party dresses and best tresses.  Indoors we go!

Dressed to Impress

Whenever a tea party is on the menu, one must needs have a perfect party dress!  This one from Lybra really fits the bill, and happily it’s completely free!  I headed over to the Lybra table at The Free Dove to find this beauty.  I joined the Free Dove group for free, then clicked on the box and ’twas all mine!  Doesn’t get much better than that.

  • Alice
  • Freya

There’s a new group gift at Astralia right now, this little paw-fect chair is so adorable I can hardly stand it.  When you join the Astralia group for 149L, you can get this sweet little seat which comes with different colour options for the paws-itively adorable cushions.  Right, I’m running out of cat puns, so I’d better wrap this up!

Happy tea sandwiches to you all!
