Feed Your Soul

So I’d been having one of “those” days. I’m sure that you know the type I am talking about. No major tragedies, just a lot of little things not quite going the way they should and wreaking havoc on your mood and the plans you’d made. Yep, definitely a Thoseday. Still, I managed to find some zen, take a moment to enjoy some music, a purely indulgent latte, and the company of this silly orange fur-ball. While the day might have been a mess, just that moment and a few freebies from Vision and e.marie managed to salvage my mood. I’d call that a silver lining.

ViSion

Now, about those freebies I mentioned. My bandeau top and cargo pants are both from Vision. I picked them both up at the Vision stop at the Second Life 17th Birthday Shop & Hop. The top is the free SL17B gift, while the pants are a free Vision group gift. You’ll need to wear the Vision group tag (there’s a group joiner there) for the pants. The Vision group also happens to be free to join at this time. The top has a texture change hud with 5 choices. The cargo pants come in the color shown with a hud that lets you change the color of the drawstring and metal parts.

Bandeau Top Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy
Cargo Pant Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

e.marie

My latte with it’s fluffy whipped topping and cute little particle effect is by e.marie. You’ll find it waiting for you at the e.marie stop at the SL17B Shop and Hop event. It’s their free Second Life Birthday gift. The latte is copy, and has a bento hold animation. If you’re like me, after cruising around the enormous Shop and Hop shopping event you’ll be thankful for the sweet pick-me-up!

Love Story

FabFree Post: Love Story

It’s a classic Love Story

Once upon a time, a girl logs on SL and gets loads of free gifts (the end) from the SL17B Shop & Hop SLife is great today! I popped in the sim and was again in a complete loss for words at the number of shops, sales, and gifts. I laced up my walking shoes and went about collecting some of the free amazing items I will tell you all about in this post.

But first, let me tell you about the group gift Candy Kitten VIP gift out right now! The Superstar Dress made me feel like a modern-day Juliet.  With 12 color options it is easy to find one that will match your mood. Each option is a colored version of a cute floral pattern that perfectly matched the early summer feel going on. So if you aren’t a member of the group, there is a fee of L$400 but I can tell you that I have received a LOT of group gifts that have personally made up for the fee in the last 6 months alone!

Superstar Dress Fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Though you can barely see my nails in this shot, I have to give a mention to alakametro<3 for their as always amazing nail appliers, which are free for you to run by and snag at the SL17B Shop & Hop Event! The gift includes a Maitreya Manicure, Maitreya Pedicure, and Omega Applier version.

Second Life birthday gift

It’s all about the Hair

All good love stories just NEED a Strong Woman with AMAZING hair! Doux delivered 110% without fail! This amazing free hair is also at the SL17B Shop & Hop and is a MUST snag while there! Coming with various sizes and color huds there is no way you cannot find one that matches your romantic mood.

Color Huds:

  • Black & Whites
  • Blondes
  • Brunettes
  • Fades
  • Naturals
  • Pastels & Ombre
  • Reds

A rose is a rose…

By any other name, would it be as sweet if it was free like the adorable Flowerpots from Astralia?! I don’t think so! I am in love with them and the moment I put them out I knew I was going to keep them up as deco (for as long as I keep THIS house up) for my romantic balcony. This free gift is again another item from the SL17B Shop & Hop (Have I convinced you to dedicate time to get in yet?) the flowers look like they were painted with watercolors to show some beautiful rainbow hues for your eyes to swoon over.  The free gift comes with two options, with and without metal – this is so you can either attach to your house or the railing.

Last by not least the final free gift I have to share with you in this blog is the confetti, it comes from Dahlia and again another amazing item from the SL17B Shop & Hop Event. (no seriously get those tp hammers going!) Inside the box, there are three color options (colorful, Halo, and Rose Gold) with two shape options, a circle and for those who want to be cooler, a square 😉 *pun intended* So why are you still reading? Get going and snag your gifts before the birthday bash ends!

Winter Weather

Winter Days

Hello Fab Free! I hope all who celebrate have enjoyed their Holidays. I’ve been away visiting family, and though I did have a great time I am so very glad to be back. It has been such a mild winter in my part of the world thus far, I often find myself wishing for some more winter-like weather. Thank goodness for Second Life. Here I can get a snowy fix any time I want it, and not have to dig my sweaters out of storage. This cute sweater dress and the cozy winter scarf are both free gifts at the Winter Shop & Hop event. Keep reading for the details about these winter weather must haves.

Vanilla Bae

You’ve gotta love freebies from Vanilla Bae. This one is a cute blue, green, or red (there’s a hud for the color choices) gradient sweater dress with some fun features. It comes in three versions, each in a few sizes. There is a PG, Adult, and a Shoulder Off version of this dress. Each of those labels refers to the “stripability” (yes I made that word up) of the dress. The PG version is the one with no stripping options. The Shoulder Off version is just what it sounds like. It allows you to wear the dress with one shoulder, or both shoulders exposed. The Adult version is also pretty self explanatory. I’ll let you explore those options yourselves. To get your copy of this fun free dress by Vanilla Bae, head to their booth at Shop & Hop and click the gift vendor.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Legacy, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Tres Blah

While I was trying on all the goodies I picked up at Shop & Hop, I really liked how this scarf gift by Tres Blah looked with the dress gift by Vanilla Bae. This unrigged mesh scarf comes in 3 sizes and has a color/texture change hud with more than 20 choices. This free gift can be picked up at the Tres Blah booth at Shop & Hop.

A petal for your thoughts?

FabFree: A petal for your thoughts?

Hiya Fabulous Readers!  Today in my photo, I’m wearing a lovely dress by Kaithleen’s that I picked up for FREE, and I thought you might like it too!

Joyful in Rose!

The Shop & Hop Event is a breeze to teleport into now that it has been going on for a while and you can direct tp to some of your favourite locations without having to cam for miles and miles from the off sim areas.  Make sure you pop in at the Kaithleen’s display on the Tinseled sim to pick up the free gift box, because it’s the beautiful Joyful Dress in Rose as shown on  my avatar.  This dress comes in sheer and solid and includes a texture HUD that allows you to change the colour of the belt.

If you are shy like me (giggles), the Kaithleen’s Universal Thong that is a free group gift  (50L to join) at the mainstore is compatible and comes in matching colours.

Tiffany for 50L!

Glam Affair is participating in Fifty Linden Friday this week, and it’s still out today if you are interested in the beautiful Tiffany applier for Genus Project in all tones for one super low fee of 50L!  I am not sure how long this will be out as it was a special for yesterday, so hurry!  She is a lovely basic skin for the Classic head that will work beautifully dolled up or down with makeup layers.

Christmas Cheer

Holiday Cheer

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been full of holiday cheer thus far. I managed to find a moment to myself, and took a moment to enjoy some crisp winter air and a spiked eggnog, in a reindeer cup no less. Despite the cold, my drink and my sweater kept me warm, and my holiday manicure kept me feelin’ cute in the moment. Each of those items, sweater, drink, and nail polish are all current group or event gifts. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about them, or you can scroll to the end for full credits. Stay warm Fab Free!

Fashionably Dead 

This cute holiday sweater is the most recent group gift at Fashionably Dead. There are a few past group gifts available as well. The sweater comes in a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 7 color choices. The Fashionably Dead group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Half+Deer

My adorable reindeer cup is the free gift at Shop & Hop by Half+Deer. It has sparkly antlers, and comes with multiple color options. Also, the cup has a drinking animation. I love the cute details. All you need to do to get yours is go to the Half+Deer booth at the Shop & Hop event and click the gift vendor.

ZOZ 

Finally, I love the choice of a holiday manicure that isn’t green or red. My shiny dark grey snowflake manicure is thanks to the free Shop & Hop gift by ZOZ. This applier manicure set has 12 total beautifully glossy colors to choose from, including the traditional green, and red. Like the other Shop & Hop gifts, to get your copy of this free gift just find the ZOZ booth at the event and click the gift vendor.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, ZOZ

Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

FabFree: Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

Hey there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but during the hectic holidays I think it’s a good idea to create a little hideaway from everyone else just for little breaks here and there.  I have created one in SL too, although I am not sure what I am hiding from here!  There is a lot of fun and free stuff in this picture on my avatar, and around it, and I’ll do my best not to get too wordy below and keep it to the point as well as make sure I add in direct TPs to those Shop & Hop locations ;).

My Holiday Look:

  • My outfit today is put together using the Caroline Plaid Skirt in Red that you can pick up at Safira under the Christmas Tree with your group tag activation (50L to join).  It also comes with a chain and leather belt, however, I attached a cat and it fell off…
  • I have paired it up with the Evie Glitter Top available at Shop & Hop as a free gift.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to match the sparkles to whatever you are wearing, and they do… indeed sparkle!
  • My necklace is Cae’s Bauble Necklace and it comes with earrings too and a texture change HUD too.  You can find this at Shop & Hop as a free gift.
  • I’ve got Alaskametro’s Shop & Hop Gift –  Time Square Eyeshadow on my eyes, and it comes in several different colours.  My lipstick has been blogged before, but it’s a free tester called Crimson at the Alaskametro store too, in case you are interested.

 Top Secret Hideaway Corner:

I started this little corner with the Mean Pillows by Lybra available for purchase at Santa Inc. because they cracked me up with sayings like “For Christmas I wish you the best… alone time” and “Christmas is where you are… not”.  After I had those all settled, I added a couple of free gifts and of course the cat and a stack of books:

  • {what next} Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake – Comes with both the cake and the single serving plate decor. – @ Shop & Hop Here
  • Schadenfreude Ornaments in Kore Pedestal Bowl  – Comes with texture options. – @ Shop & Hop Here

After that… all that was left was to hide in it 😀
