Monday is Cancelled

Oh, hey there… you found me.

Yeah, I’m still sitting here drinking my coffee. To be honest, I was completely unable to adult today. Sure, I had tons of stuff to do, but I didn’t get any of it done. I’ll be sorry tomorrow. :-/

But for now, I just gonna sit here quietly and enjoy my coffee.

Coffee and Comfort

I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything done today soon as I put on this cozy outfit. The Parka Dress is the latest group gift from S@BBiA, and it comes in a one-size-fits-all mesh with an alpha layer. I love not having to make decisions – like what size to wear – early in the morning.

To keep my feet toasty, I added the Baby It’s Cold Outside boots from Entice. You can pick up a pair for free by joining the SL Frees & Offers in-world group. The boots come in rigged and unrigged versions with an alpha layer so they should fit just about everyone.

Ok, I guess it’s time to pack it up and go inside. In the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all, tomorrow is another day.” 🙂

Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Everything I Wished For

Stargazing

It’s still early enough that the sun’s not quite up where I am and I can still catch a few of the stars that are out before the sunrise melts them away. Was that a falling star?! I made a wish! What will you wish for?

Everything I wished for…

… is at S@BBiA today. I got an amazing free group gift at S@BBiA yesterday and I had to share it with you so you could get it today. I’m not sure how long it will be out, so make sure you hurry! This back bow blouse with beige denim skirt is the current free group gift (the group is free to join) and it is just adorable.

The gift comes in one mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The two pieces are separate and they did include alpha layers, so I believe they would fit a system body very well also. I think they may be a very good quality fitmesh (or perhaps a Maitreya fit). The outfit might fit other bodies very well also and for the grand cost of free, who could pass up trying it out!

I’m going to catch a few more winks at the stars before they disappear completely. Happy stargazing if you go, and happy shopping!

Gently Down The Stream

Snapshot_003
Well hi there FabFree Readers!!  I am off from work just a little bit earlier this fine Friday afternoon and I thought I would toss on some jeans and a tee and take the old rowboat out for a spin to enjoy the midday sun.  My casual outfit today is all free, and I’m excited to share the news with you below!

Where To Find My Free Outfit!

I was lucky enough to win these Ankle Skinny Jeans the other day in a lucky board at S@bbia!  It took a little bit of stalking, but my “lucky L” finally appeared, and I was sent these great fitmesh jeans.  As you can see from the vendor ad below, you can choose ripped or plain and choose hem style as well.  You’ll need to join the group to take advantage of the lucky boards at S@bbia, but it’s free to join, so no worries 🙂

Ankle Skinny Jeans Light Blue (LB Prize)

You’ll find this casual T-Shirt at Virtue as a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift (free to join  – as always).  Included are several sizes and a texture change HUD with three colour options!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus

Flamingos and Squids

Flamingos and Squids

In preparation

It’s been a pretty long week for me IRL and with all signs, unfortunately, pointing to things getting more chaotic in the coming days, I turned to my Second Life and popped into the Baja Norte sim for some a much-needed breather. There’s still something calming about seagulls swooping about amidst the cresting waves, even though it’s just only in a virtual world. I had something skimpier in mind for this outing (hmm…come to think of it I’ve never actually worn a swimsuit to any of the beach sims I’ve visited), but a stop to Creator’s Collection Box changed my mind. Unlike Carson, who came away with one killer look, I quickly picked up the gift at the S@bbia booth. From its quirky print (flamingos are just adorable birds don’t you think?) to its pretty bowed sash, the (aptly named) Flamingo dress is simply darling.

The gift comes in only one mesh size, however, and without an alpha layer included. While arguably it’ll be easier for those with mesh bodies to find a fit thanks to their nifty alpha huds, I experimented with some of the alpha layers of other dresses that I already owned and found a good fit. Personally, I feel that the Flamingo dress was worth the effort especially when you take into consideration that it does come with a hud that lets you switch the dress between three colors (blue, red and white) technically making it three free dresses. Be sure to do a little more exploring if you visit this 2nd Anniversary round of Creator’s Collection Box as the majority of booths have great free gifts out.

A good pair of clogs

Seeing as I wanted to be able to dip my toes in the water or wriggle them in the warm sand, fussy boots or heels just wouldn’t do for this latest adventure. The sneakers had to stay at home too because who wants to spend their time cleaning sand out from the soles of their damp sneakers (yuck!). Luckily enough I came across a free fatpack of clogs from A&D Clothing and my footwear problems were quickly solved. These cute clogs are a sub-o gift at the store meaning that you won’t need to join any groups or free up those precious group slots to get your hands on them. Better yet this gift is unisex (that ‘special’ dude won’t have any excuses not to join you at the beach now) and can be worn with classic avatar feet (alpha layer and shoe base included). Did I mention that this gift is a fatpack? Well, you’ll also be getting a hud which lets you choose among twelve different colors with a section that’s dedicated to resizing tools as well. I’m still pretty tickled that I found this design in SL seeing as I’ve a couple of pairs of these out of the virtual world and see them all over the place besides. When do we get to choose the charms hmm?

Flamingos and Squids

So squids were mentioned

And here they are in the form of a cute pair of earrings from Frangipani Garden that’s also available as a free gift at Creator’s Collection Box. While I’m fully aware that you’re supposed to eat seafood and not wear it, these Takosan earrings were just too cute to pass up. The detailing on these earrings are amazing as is the subtle difference in the expressions between Mr. and Ms. Squid (well, I assume they’re Mr and Ms). While a resizer script is absent, permissions on these earrings are set to modify and copy so you can make as many backups as you like before making those changes if need be. Creator’s Collection Box runs until the 18th of next month so hurry down.

A sweet face

There’s a new group gift out at WoW Skins! I always look forward to the frequent gifts from this store and was pretty excited to unbox Preziosa. She has a slightly more mature look to her, I feel but still, has that sweet look and glossiness that are hallmarks of the WoW Skins. The neutral tones of the makeup on Preziosa are simply perfect. The gift package includes:

  • Two system skins in the Tan tone (one with cleavage and one without)
  • Omega applier hud for Head and Body

Other skin tones are available for purchase at the WoW Skins main store at a discounted price of 199L and it is 450L to join the group if you’re not already a member. Of course joining the group will mean access to the group only Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards that are always stuffed with goodies.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got a sudden craving for takoyaki and hmm…where do I get some? Till later.

EDIT: Thanks to Ariel Starflare, I’ve been informed that there is now an alpha layer for the dress. Us classic avatars can rejoice!

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!
Coming soon to FabFree

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!

Boxes rich with gifts

So many boxes so many gifts!

There are things for woman, men and home. I collected all the boxes and headed to unpack them to find out what surprises they held. I put some of them together so you can see what awaits you.

Each item is FREE. My mesh Striped dress is from S@BBiA, its comes with just one size but it fit me like a charm so it may be fitmesh tho it doesn’t say so. My quirky red Ika squid earrings are from CX. My black bow ribbon choker is curtsy of  Kyoko Couture, a quick edit had it fitting my neck. The day is so windy my cute dot parasol gift from W-ZERO may get blown away, it includes a hold pose. Tho I am actually using the gift poses from J’dore instead.

Each store link will take you directly to that stall tho its a small event and worth the walk around to grab all the gifts.
