Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Well well well… the weekend is inching closer, and I for one am completely and utterly ready for it.  I’m ready to kick back with a cute outfit and possibly some whiskey (though, I’ll make a really insane face when I drink whiskey…the type of face that means “why did I just ingest that?”).  Let’s get on the fast track to weekending!

Three Stops

I feel like a proud parent showing my child off these days with all the goodies from the FabFree St. Patty’s Day hunt.  I’m sure you’ll forgive me a little, because they’re all so bloomin’ nice!  It’s also so exceedingly exciting that some of my absolute favourite designers are taking part, three of which I’m featuring today!  Here’s what I’ve got going on:

  • 5L top from Lybra sized for Alice, Ebody, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Physique & Tonic
  • FREE shoes from Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya & Slink
  • Whiskey set from Ishiku at 5L for each part of the set (4 parts)

Don’t miss these awesome prizes, they won’t be around for very long, and they really, REALLY are fantastic.  See all the hunt keys HERE!

Big hugs,

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs. For this post I’ve got some January group gifts to share with you that have me feelin’ foxy. Maai and MINIMAL both have free group gifts for the month of January that you will not want to miss. Keep reading for the details and more of my banter.

Maai 

Yes, that little fox pun was absolutely intended. I do think there’s sometimes a stigma around being an adult and wearing cutely patterned or styled clothing. I however don’t particularly care for them. I love the little fox faces on this slip of a dress from Maai. Truth be told when I put this dress on I got that Jimi Hendrix song stuck in my mind. “…And you know, you’re a sweet little lovemaker, Foxy…”

The Maai group is free to join, making this group gift completely free as well. All you need is a group space.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Kupra, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Alpha Layer also included

JANUARY GROUP GIFT

MINIMAL

I’ve picked up several of the MINIMAL group gifts in the past, but I think this January group gift backdrop is my favorite. It has such a feeling to it that I’m not sure how to describe. It’s simple enough to serve as a setting for just about any sort of scene, and has the right feel for something modern romantic or old-world fantasy.

The MINIMAL group has a join fee of 250 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well as this January 2021 group gift.

Let’s Do This!

Let's Do This!

We’ve come to the part of the evening where suddenly I’ve got loud music on, the champagne is chilled and all sorts of sparkly dresses have flitted through my mind – visions of NYE revelry.  It’s time to get dressed up and get out onto the grid.  Come on FabFree – let’s kick 2020 to the curb NOW!

Byeeeeeeee

Step 1:  an awesome dress.  Ricielli have got you covered on this front, as they’ve got their New Year Hunt kicking off.  Each gorgeous item is priced at just 15L (as is tradition) and there are so many pretty things to choose from.  I’m currently wearing #1, and I love it’s sparkly exuberance.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Ricielli Hunt New Year 2021

Swish Swish

Beusy are also ringing in the new year with a hairstyle for members of their VIP group.  The Nyx hairstyle is a high ponytail that comes in three parts:  the ponytail, the bangs and the hair base, so you can wear each part separately, mixing and matching as you like, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours.  I wore just the ponytail.  It’s cool because it’s got quite a bit of motion to it!  The Beusy group is currently 350L to join.  You can get this hairstyle by clicking on the wording at the top right of the gift vendor.

NYX HAIR+GIFT@BEUSY.

Happy New Year, FabFree.

I hope 2021 is a whole lot brighter.

The Bright Side

The Bright Side

I’m in the process of looking on the bright side at the moment.  It may not look like it, because I’m sitting in the dark on a staircase.  But I find that those times are sometimes the best for finding the silver linings.  I’m happy that I don’t have to race around to stores at the moment, or that I don’t have to go to all the parties and gatherings that I’d rather avoid (you know, the awkward ones).  So really, even though this Holiday season is super different than ones we have lived in the past, I think we can still find a bit of joy hidden among all the madness.

Sparking Joy

One thing that has been super great about all this time spent at home is that there seems to be an overabundance of gifts inworld.  I really love it, not only because of all the freebies, but also because it shows that deep down we all care about each other.  I see these gifts as a little spark of care sent to us from designers all around the globe.  We’re all united, even when we’re apart!  Anyway, enough of my nattering.  I’ll get to the freebiesTres Chic has just started their newest round, and wouldn’t you know it?  There are free gifts for members of their free-to-join group!  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE Hair by No.Match in a pack of black hair hues.  The little Christmassy bow is also included!
  • FREE Dress by Catarsis sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Shoes by Ricielli sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Tres Chic is running until January 10th!  Put it on  your to-do list!

Woah! Two Free Mesh Heads from LeLutka!

Untitled

Ok FabFree, strap yourself in, because it’s time for another wild ride down the path of free mesh heads!  LeLutka are being super generous over the Holidays with not one, but TWO free, complete, mesh heads from their Evolution line!  Wow!  Read on, and I’ll tell you all about how to grab this amazing gift and what’s included.

Lilly & Alain

I roped in the lovely Oov to help me out with showing you both the male and female heads, and we were pretty intent on doing it all for free, to see if you really are getting this head for 0L or if you have to pay anything extra to make it work.  We are happy to report that both heads are good to go and come with everything you need to move forward in the realms of mesh.  I am really not someone who knows much about BOM (it’s just not my jam) but I found this was fairly easy to use and I put this look together with the skins, eyebrows, eyes, makeup, facial expressions etc that were included in the free pack.  When you really think about it, this is truly an amazing gift!  Oov was just as impressed with the male head and we were excited with the way it all turned out.

To get yours, join the Lelutka group for free and head to THIS LOCATION, and click on the sign.  I’ll admit, the sim is extremely busy and you may be fighting for a while to get in, but don’t fret – you’ve got until December 26th to get these wonderful gifts!

Also, though you can make your own shape using “edit my appearance”, and there is one included in the box, I headed over to Pout! to pick up the free gift shape they just put out for the Lilly head.  No group join required!

Thank you, LeLutka!

Dark Desires

Dark Desires

This October has really gotten me feeling a bit spooky, hasn’t it?  I love how SL really gets in the spirit of the season, with gifts, hunts, prizes, events… The list of fun stuff going on really just gets longer every day!

That’s Rich

It’s time for the annual Ricielli Halloween Hunt!  I love this hunt for several reasons… The first being that it’s fairly easy.  Call me lazy, but sometimes we just want a hunt that won’t make our eyeballs fall out of our heads.  Secondly, the offerings are completely and utterly gorgeous!  Anywhos, to take part, just look around the store for the little spooky cupcakes, each one containing an outfit that costs just 15L.  I picked up cupcake number 14, which contains this gorgeous lingerie.  There are so many pretty items to choose from , I’m sure you’ll have a hard time picking just what you want.  I’ve added the key below so you can have a good look at what’s on offer.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Ricielli Halloween Hunt is now Open!

Creepy Cute

My hair is kinda giving me Elvira vibes.  Isn’t it cool?  It’s the newest group gift at Yomi.  Their group is currently free to join, and in this gift you’ll get not just one, but two fantastic hairstyles.  They come with an extensive HUD of colours, and three different sizes.  I’ve also included the vendor ad below so you can see how cool both hairstyles really are!

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin'

“Don’t stop believin’, just hold on to that feelin’…” ~ Journey 

Surely I’m not the only one with a brain full of useless (but totally fun) pop culture information. That said, when I saw this adorable (and free) group gift tee at Reed, I immediately felt like singing the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'” since that’s what the shirt says. The unicorn graphic is also pretty darn cute! Also at Reed are these pretty wristwatches that come in gold, silver (shown), black, and rose. They are free lucky letter board prizes, or you can purchase them all for 75 linden and not have to wait. The group gift shirt, and the Lucky Letter boards will require the Reed group tag, however the group is free to join.

Shirt Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), MeshBody Legacy

On my recent shopping excursion I also picked up some nail polish and eyeshadow from Demicorn. These pretty pastel nail polishes, and my vibrant eyeshadow are two of many group gifts at Demicorn. The Demicorn group is 100 linden to join. The polish has 6 color choices, and the eyeshadow has 5 color combinations to choose from. I have to say I’m very much enjoying these rich colors!

Nail Applier Included – Maitreya Only
Eyeshadow Applier Included – Catwa Only

Happy shopping Fab Free! Now you’ll have to excuse me while I return to my own personal rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin'” while dancing around my living room.

Waiting for Fireflies

Waiting for Fireflies

Since the summer evenings are nice and warm, I had my good friend Flam around to hang out on the porch.  We’re languishing in the remainder of the day’s heat, and waiting for the fireflies to make their appearance!

To Luas!

You’ll see that both Flam and I have pretty summery dresses on.  Mine is the latest gift from Luas!  It comes with a fairly extensive HUD to change the dress to 14 different colours and textures, change the belt colour or remove the belt completely.  To get yours, just join the Luas group for 50L and click on the vendor.  There are loads of fun and pretty gifts here, so make sure you grab them all while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky

To Kaithleen’s!

Flam went in a romantic direction with her dress, with it’s poet sleeves and pretty blues.  It’s the latest gift from Kaithleen’s!  Grab yours by joining the Kaithleen’s group for 99L.  This dress can double as lingerie as it comes with a more see-through version to set hearts aflutter, as well as the ability to remove the sleeves if you want to go for a strapless look, and the HUD gives you the ability to chance all the ribbon and trim colours.  So pretty.

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Enjoy the weather, Fab Free!

Crèpes in the Park

Crèpes in the Park

In RL today I decided to try my hand at whipping up some banana pancakes.  I’m not much of a baker or cook in RL, so I felt very accomplished with my wafting flour and twirling spatula.  And yes, I am aware that pancakes are like, level 1 cooking.  My virtual self is following suit by eating far fancier crèpes in a park, so I guess she wins that tug-of-war!  Though, mine probably tasted better.

Hunt it Out

Something I’m much better at is hunting for clothes in SL.  Ricielli are celebrating Easter with one of their awesome hunts.  To take part, all you have to do is search the store for the little bunnies, and buy each one for 15L.  I wouldn’t call this a difficult hunt, so if you’re looking for some fun that isn’t too challenging, then this may just be the hunt for you!  I paired the Petra top with the Celly skirt for a pretty, pastel look.
