Fifty Linden Friday Finds for Guys!

Watch Out

“Hey, Serena? I’ve been calling you all morning. Where are you? I thought you wanted me to bring you some lunch today? Oh well, call me.”

Awww, poor Gavin. I forgot to tell him that I was feeling better and decided to take Fergus out for a ride this morning, lol!¬†ūüė≥

FLF for Guys

But everything worked out since Gavin was able to do a little Fifty Linden Friday shopping!

Starting at the top: Gavin scored with some great hair from Wasabi. The Marcus hair comes in a special pack of 7 colors, with and without roots. The hair is resizeable and even comes with a smaller version for the ladies.

Gavin’s sweater is a FLF deal from Etham. The Julian Turtleneck comes in blue or gray and is sized for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

There are some really nice Fifty Linden Friday finds out for the fellas today, so be sure to grab them before midnight SLT tonight!

Free Jeans

Gavin also managed to find a pair of free jeans! The Worn Denim Jeans by Apple May Designs are a free gift at The Free Dove.

The jeans come in sizes XS-L with an alpha layer, but they work fine on Gavin’s Slink mesh body.

There is also a version for the ladies in the box!

Guess I’d better give Gavin a call so he can bring me some dinner. ūüėČ

Enjoy!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs РXL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello there, Fabulous Readers¬† and Happy Friday at last!¬† I’m super excited about my post today because Ripley and I have a special surprise to share with you in just a bit.¬† We hope you enjoy it!

Silky Soft Sweater

I know I’ve blogged about TRS Designs quite a bit lately, but there are so many lovely gifts there that I just can’t resist returning again and again.¬† My high necked Meghan sweater is my latest Fabulous Find at the shop.¬† With sleeves that completely cover my wrists and an extra long waistline, I could see myself wearing this top in real life (I can never find sleeves long enough for my arms).¬† I really like its realistic folded texture and silvery sheen.¬† This cozy winter top is a free gift for members of the TRS Designs group, which is completely free to join!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

It’s Full Bento and It’s Free?!

This week, I heard about a Bento AO that new residents (under 90 days) can pick up for free at the SEmotion in-world store.¬† The SEmotion Newbie Girl AO HUD includes four stand poses, three sits, two ground sits, an athletic jump, Bento hand movements, and a sassy walk animation.¬† This is one sweet deal!¬† You haven’t been left out fellas – there is also a male version available.¬† If you’ve been in SL a bit longer than 90 days, you can scoop up this animation override for just 1 little Linden dollar at the SEmotion Marketplace shop.¬† It’s really cute!¬† In order to take advantage of the full Bento capabilities of this HUD, you need a Bento avatar, but I tested it on a classic avatar, and other than the hands being different, it worked just fine.¬† I knew I wanted to feature this AO in a blog post, but I really didn’t think a still picture would do it justice, so I tried my hand at creating a video about it for you.¬† It’s my first attempt at vlogging, and I know I have a lot to learn, but I hope you watching enjoy it!

Watch on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHgup2GWFdY&feature=youtu.be

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.¬† Thank you for reading (and checking out the vlog post).¬† Until next time, happy shopping!

New Year New Everything

New Year New Everything
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a new year, so why not make everything new?!¬† Recently I posted about new skins and even some lingerie. Today I’m having fun with some furry new friends, a cute new outfit, and a brand new space to call home. Keep reading to find out the how and where you can get each of these FREE or inexpensive items. First, let’s talk about these adorable fur babies!

Puppies!

The adorable little guy on the cushion is not only as cute as he can be, he’s also completely FREE. You can pick this little guy up at Japonica, he is a FREE gift from TLC Animated Animals. Part of what makes him (or her!) so adorable is that he is animated. This little puppy wags his tail and moves his head. There are also little particle feathers that come up out of the cushion where the little rascal tore it. To take him home all you need to do is purchase the box for zero linden from the TLC shop at Japonica.

The second equally adorable puppy in my arms is also at Japonica. There several variations of this furry friend by Who What, each wearing a pretty little kimono. These pups are a gacha item, the one I have is called “Friday” and is one of the common gacha prizes from the Who What gacha at Japonica. This sweet puppy has the hold animation shown (the ground sit is part of Pru’s AO) as well as a typing animation. When you type in local chat the pose will change so that you are holding your puppy and vertically instead of horizontally and cute hearts and butterfly particles are emitted. To get your sweet kimono wearing pup just play the Who What gacha for 48 linden per play.

MOoH!

If you haven’t checked out the more recent Fab Free group gift listing, you should. This sweater and leggings combo is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoh. It’s the kind of outfit that can be perfect for a lazy casual day or be dressed up for a comfortable yet put together look. The outfit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the sweater. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, if you’re not already a member.

Kraftwork

Did you happen to notice the gorgeous textures in the room Pru’s sitting in? This photo is a narrow view of the studio apartment style skybox group gift at Kraftwork. This one room skybox is beautifully textured and comes in a “daylight” and a “moonlight” version. The shades and hues are slightly different depending on which version you use. I chose the daylight version, and the appearance of light through the windows is from the windlight settings I used. I love the added illusion of an exterior treeline through the windows. To get your copy of these pretty little skyboxes just join the Kraftwork group and click the group gift vendor near the landing point. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join.

Cotton Candy After Midnight

Wrapped in a Cozy Cardigan

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!¬† On chilly fall days such as this, I love, love, love to cloak myself in a toasty warm cardigan.¬† Ripley and I recently teleported over to @rOrO to take a look around, and I’m so glad we did!¬† I picked up my new, super-long sweater as a free Midnight Mania prize there.¬† All I had to do was tap the board on the wall, cross my fingers, and hope that the target of 10 slaps would be reached by midnight.¬† Sure enough, when the clock struck 12, my prize was delivered!

Raspberry and Teal

Featuring an ombre color scheme composed of a jewel-like raspberry hue fading to a dusky teal, this sweater-jacket kept both my arms and legs shielded from the brisk air.  The playful diamond-shaped pattern on the outer shell coordinated beautifully with the solid-colored shirt underneath.  This sexy little crop top offered a glimpse of my tummy, but I was comforted by the fact that should the wintery air become too uncomfortable, all I had to do was pull together the sides of my cardigan to warm up.  I really liked the added detail of the dark necklace, which is included as part of the top.   To pick up this Cotton Candy Argyle Cardigan and Shirt for yourself, simply journey to @rOrO and give the board a tap.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

While you’re at the store,¬† here’s hoping that your letter will come up on the lucky boards.¬† There are also a variety of dollarbies on the wall offered for sale, and a collection of group gifts as well, including one for members of Fabulously Free in SL.¬† Until my next post, happy shopping!

Early Morning Light

Desert Light
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Weekend! Ripley and I have truly been enjoying the arrival of cooler temperatures in the desert. For the past two days, we’ve ventured out for long morning walks. The bright sunshine washed everything in our path with a clear, brilliant light, yet the air was still tempered by the early hour. ¬†After many months of sweltering triple digits, we are savoring the arrival of more fall-like weather.

It May Be Cooler in the Mornings…

but it is still very warm in the afternoon, so long pants are not really an option for me in RL yet. ¬†I was very happy to stumble across this cute Aurola outfit in the Desire shop on the Marketplace! ¬†With a knotted crop top and sporty drawstring-style shorts, this casual combination was ideal for an early morning jaunt with the pupster. ¬†Although I opted for a midnight hue with white piping, Aurola includes a full fat-pack, which offers 18 colors for the top, and 15 for the shorts, so if black isn’t your favorite, you have many other options available. ¬†Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile top and shorts combo for only 5L!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you are enjoying some splendid, early autumn weather yourselves. ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping!

Down That Red Dirt Road

Down that Red Dirt Road
Hello Fabulous Readers! ¬†I hope you are enjoying the official arrival of summer. ¬†In my part of RL, summer time can be unbearable. ¬†We are broiling under a heat wave with record high temperatures that are leaving me longing for the rural dirt roads and cool green forests of my childhood home. ¬†Since I can’t get out for long in RL, I sure am glad that Ripley and I could take a long stroll down a country lane in SL.

Cute and Casual

After reading Love’s post {HERE} and Carson’s post {HERE} about The Cart Wash Sale, Ripley and I decided to take a look for ourselves, and we discovered the perfect casual outfit at the Finale Couture cart for our trip down memory lane. ¬†For only 10L, I scooped up the complete Lea outfit, which includes my black cami-style top and distressed denim jeans. ¬†One of my pet peeves is having to break in a new pair of jeans, so finding a pair that already have that vintage look, and are comfortably soft is a real plus in my book. ¬†The pale hue of these softly worn trousers contrasts beautifully with the dark satiny texture of my top. ¬†I love the way the top leaves part of my tummy bare to feel the gentle summer breeze.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Cami for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh Cami in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cami for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Jeans for Slink, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Venus

Back Soon With More Cart Sale Fashions

Ripley and I spotted so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds at The Cart Wash Sale! ¬†We’ll be back soon to share another with our favorite readers. ¬†Until my next post, happy shopping!

Window Seat

Hello Fabulouses! ¬†Today Ripley and I are celebrating 100 posts with Fabulously Free in SL by curling up in front of a window in one of our favorite places – the library. ¬†It’s the perfect spot to sit and reminisce about the past 9 months of blogging for Fab Free. ¬† Sharing my Fabulous Finds with you, and becoming part of the Fab Free family has been such a wonderful experience. ¬†Thank you so much for reading my posts, and for being so encouraging and positive. ¬†I am truly blessed, and look forward to writing many more blog posts to come!

A Marketplace Find

My summery top and skirt are a recent Marketplace discovery from the BarBarella store. ¬†Priced at only 50L, this complete outfit, called Mona, is designed to fit both standard and mesh bodies alike. ¬†The softly worn denim skirt features a delicate embroidered pattern on the back pockets which coordinates perfectly with the creamy hue of the tank top. ¬†Ideal for a casual day spent exploring SL, this outfit is light and sweetly feminine. ¬†The package also includes strappy sandals, which I didn’t wear for my picture.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Jean Mini Skirt in mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for skirt
  • Strap Tank in Fitted mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Strap Tank in mesh XS, S, M, L, XL

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island. ¬†I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world. ¬†I found the perfect poses for times¬†like these. ¬†Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering¬†the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL. ¬†Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers. ¬†Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package. ¬†Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included: ¬†

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile. ¬†Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!
