More Than Alright


More than Alright

There’s a whole wonderfully weird wild world out there and I’m proud to be living in it, even when things get heavy. To some the crowded city with its miles of pavement might seem bleak. I find the vast concrete jungle to be full of art and adventure, especially when I’ve got my partner in all things by my side. Clothing being an excellent form of artful expression; my corset top and his vest from BYRNE spoke loud of love as we spent the evening together just wandering the streets and exploring the underground of Tokyo Windhill City.

BYRNE – Male & Female Group Gifts

The sleeveless shirt Blue is wearing and the corseted top I have on are both free September group gifts at BYRNE. I’ve added the vendor photos for these gifts below so you can get a good look at the vibrant color and pop-art-like textures. Both gifts come in a blue version as well as a purple. To get your copy of these fantastic free gifts, head over to BYRNE and join the in-world group. Then you can grab both gifts from the group notices.

In Your Dreams


Industiral Chic

Need a little personal space? In Your Dreams. Seriously, the Your Dreams shop has a quaint little industrial loft skybox as their August group gift. To fill your new space, I suggest the Wanderlust gacha set by Petite Mort now available at the Imaginarium gacha event. For more details about each of these fabulous finds, keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for the credits.

Your Dreams

The Your Dreams store group is 50L to join, and there are actually 3 skybox group gifts available. The August group gift is this modest industrial looking skybox. The textures are well done, and the extra high ceiling makes it seem more spacious. To get your copy of this group gift, and the others, head over to Your Dreams and join their in-world group. Then click the gift vendors while wearing your group tag.

Petite Mort

This shabby chic bedroom set by Petite Mort reminds me of some coveted thrift shop finds and some definite southwest style. I love all the little details in each piece and the equally detailed textures. The set is called “Wanderlust” and is 50 linden per pull at the Imaginarium event. I also happens to think this eclectic set pairs perfectly with the Your Dreams skybox gift.

Get Into My Car


Get into My Car

There are some fashion items that though they speak of another decade, they are timeless. I feel that way about dresses with peter-pan collars. Needless to say, I had to show this dress by Fashionably Dead. It’s their free gift in celebration of Second Life’s 16th Birthday. I think it happens to go perfectly with Lamb’s gift hairstyle for SL16B, and the gift set of pastel lip colors Alaskametro has out as their free SL16B gift. I felt like a 1960s fashion model with a modern edge. Keep reading for more info on each of these fantastic freebies.

I really love this free SL16B gift dress by Fashionably Dead. It comes in a wide range of solid colors, and has a girlish but still grown up look to it. The Fashionably Dead shop for SL16B is located in the Gilded region. This cute dress comes in the following sizes for each color: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya).

This flowing over the shoulders hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by Lamb. It comes in a full fatpack of colors. It also has a hairbase style hud with the choice of hiding or showing the hairbase feature. Lamb’s shop is in SL16B’s Tinseled region. You’ll find this generous freebie waiting there.

Lastly, but far from least, I couldn’t complete my modern retro look without some shimmery lips. Alaskametro put out a pretty Omega applier “Bubblegum” lip gloss pallet as their free SL16B gift. It has 6 frosty pastel shades, and an additional feature that lets you pick from 3 different lip shapes for each color. I think that is a really cool option. This fabulous gift also has one more unique feature that I really like, there’s a button on the hud that will send you the classic system layers for this lip gloss set. Alaskametro is in the SL16B Halcyon region, which is where you’ll find this awesome makeup freebie.

Happy shopping Fab Free, here are the details:

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Normal People


Normal People Scare Me

Hello hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog. As much as the saying on this shirt makes me giggle, I really don’t believe in normal. It’s all just relative. So before I jump in to telling you about this awesome new gacha set by Oubliette, and a cool new group gift hairstyle by Pink Hustler, I’ll present to you a quote I’ve always liked.

“What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.” – Charles Addams

The Outfit – Yep, you read that right, I said the gacha word. That means this too cool cami style top and the even cooler shorts are part of a super cool set that you won’t want to miss. Oubliette has their Neo Witch gacha set out at Gachaland. This gacha is just 50 lindens per pull. There are 10 commons and 1 rare, along with 1 event exclusive gift awarded after 20 pulls. Each piece comes in several sizes. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key below so you can get a look at all the goodies.

Image may contain: 3 people, people standing and text

The Hair – One of Pink Hustler’s group gifts is this shaggy mid-length hairstyle that I’m kind of in love with. The gift includes a color hud with what I’d call an “essentials” variety of color choices. To get your copy of this group gift hairstyle, you’ll need to join the Pink Hustler group. There are quite a few group gifts available, including hairstyles, mesh/bento nails, and a few other clothing/accessory items. The Pink Hustler group has a hefty, but worth it join fee of 500 linden.

Here are the details:
