Rock Your October 1st

Spooky

Hello Fabulouses!  So, I have to admit it……I went to the Rock Your Rack Event meaning to try my luck in the hunt taking place.  And, really, I did pick up a number of prizes there that I am itching to blog, BUT, when I entered the Pretty Kitty Design booth and spotted the Miyako Gacha display, I just knew I had to try to pick up a few of the pieces of this outfit.  Since today is October 1st and all, I decided to follow Aline’s example and step into the Halloween side of life.

She Was Unstoppable

On the first try, I was surprised to see the rare red headpiece pop up as an inventory offer.  I took that as a good sign, and from that point, I kept playing and collecting (and playing and collecting).  For just 50L a try, it was fairly budget friendly, and it actually didn’t take too long to get the whole outfit.  You can mix and match the pieces with other items from your wardrobe, so there’s no need to go all ham on the gacha machine like I did 😉 .  The Miyako headpiece features black horns rimmed with gold spirals, white pearl embellishments, and red stars dangling from silvery chains.  The curve-hugging top is trimmed with a pretty string bow at the neckline and has semi opaque ruffles.  While the black outer portion matches the horns, the patterned center section echos the crimson hue of the stars.  Also trimmed with string bows, the asymmetrical skirt has a short flirty hem in front and a longer back section.  The part of the outfit that took the longest to get were the shoes, but I have to say, they were worth the wait.  Sexy, thigh-high stockings, criss crossed with bright red lacing and a unique high heel platform (without the heel piece) provide just the right finishing touch.  Each piece in the outfit costs just 50 Linden dollars.

A Perfectly Spooky Pose

To set off the Miyako outfit, not just any pose would do.  Luckily for me, a group notice popped up on my screen advertising a 1L special over at ENII Poses.  I opened the texture, then excitedly teleported to the shop.  This was just what I had in mind!  Not only do you get the pose for a special price, the generous designer also included the backdrop you see in my photo and the ultra creepy skull in my hand.  Ripley took one look at the scary pumpkin backdrop and high tailed it over to Stan and begged for a walk to anywhere far, far away.  The poor guy!  I had to rez the backdrop and pose ball, so you will need a sim where you can set items out in order to use all the items included.  The poseball itself can be copied, so I also could have rezzed it, opened it up, and removed the pose to use with a different background.  It’s a great deal for just 1 little Linden dollar!

Well, I hear the jingle of the pupster’s collar tags as he and Stan are arriving back home, so I’d better whisk the scary orange monster up and tuck it safely away in the black hole that is my inventory.   Until next time, happy shopping!

Queen of The Jungle

Queen of the Jungle
I’m feeling very Jungle queen today!  Like I could swing from a vine and drink from a coconut – or maybe even be an extra in a Duran Duran video.  I’m probably not wearing enough makeup for the latter, so let’s go with jungle queen!  Now where is that Tarzan hiding?

Tribal Sauce

After seeing all the cool finds that everyone else turned up on the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt, I took to hunting a bit myself, and came across this really great suit from Sasheba’s Closet.  I love the way it skims off my curves!  I’m betting you could even use it for some roleplaying if the mood strikes! It also comes with a fairly extensive HUD to change the colours to many different looks!  I searched out the hot air balloon in the store that contains this pretty number, and paid one little linden for it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya

I Said “Surprise Me, Bartender!”, And He Did

FabFree: I Said "Surprise Me, Bartender!", And He Did

Hey there Fabulouses!  Last week, I mentioned that I had visited a store called PP while hopping around doing the The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt, and I got sidetracked by a FREE instore credit gift (which is still available btw!) that I told you about that day [HERE], but I am returning now to share news about the hunt prize I picked up as well, because it’s so cute!

Reminder Info About The Hunt

As I have previously mentioned on FabFree…  The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt has begun their sixth annual event!  This hunt runs until September 30th so you have plenty of time to hunt down all of the locations.  The hunt icon you will be seeking is a red and white striped hot air balloon and it will set you back 1L per prize.  If you are in a rush and don’t have time or the urge to hunt, you can purchase these hunt prizes at the poster vendor for 25L, alternately.

What’s The Prize At PP?

The prize you can obtain at PP is the Barely Pink Eyelet Mini Micro Dress as shown on my avatar.  It’s sheer, but I was able to fit the Universal Thong group gift panties by Kaithleen’s under it in white to cover up anything I was a little shy about.  I think an applier bikini would work nicely as well for a beach cover-up type look.  The ties at the hips are extra cute 😉

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

I don’t care if the world knows what my secrets are

FabFree: I don't care if the world knows what my secrets are

Good morning FabFree!  While I was at Grumble the other day searching around for the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt, I came across a few hunt icons and grabbed them too.  One of them was The Elemental Desires Hunt icon which is the four symbols of elements (water, air, fire, earth).  This hunt has two paths…  One for 1L and one for 40L, however this particular prize was on the 1L path.  You can find hunt hints and a prize preview on their official blog.

It’s True, I’m Secretly A Mermaid

I’m not afraid to tell the world about it either.  I wear my confession on the front of my adorable striped back tied hankie top!  It’s a little hard to see in the slouchy position I have myself in, but it does say “Secretly A Mermaid”.  The matching Criss Cross Shorty Shorts are mega short and have very cute ties at the sides.  Yep… this outfit is just 1L, and I love it!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

At The End of The Day

At the End of the Day

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  It’s been a long day of riding the waves, and the pupster and I are having one last look across the water before we head home for the night.  Today’s little get away to the shores of Kanaloa Surf Beach was inspired by a budget-friendly wet suit that I picked up over at La Perla.

Fits Me Like a Glove

Featuring a deep shade of indigo accented with bright blue piping and a dark gray inlay, this outfit will have you suited up in style.  The Surf Set Gift from La Perla covers the entire length of your legs to protect them from the chilly water and any scrapes and scratches you might encounter.  It includes half length sleeves and a high collar to keep you completely shielded from the elements.  The package contained classic mesh sizes from extra small through extra large, but no alpha layer.  Although there weren’t fits designed exclusively for mesh avatars, the small worked just fine on my Belleza Jake mesh body.  I’m including a forward facing snapshot below so you can get a good look at the logo splashed across the chest area.  Ladies, don’t despair, there is a female version included for you as well.  I couldn’t drag Kat out with me today….maybe next time!  If you’re up for a surfing adventure, head on over to the group gift wall at La Perla.  For just one Linden dollar, you’ll be well equipped for a day of play at the beach.

Sizes Included:

  •  XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL

Happiness Comes in Waves

Until next time, happy shopping!

The Porch After Prom

The Porch After Prom

A good movie trope is the “sitting on the porch after prom” scene.  You know, they’ve gone to the prom, shenanigans have been had, and now they’re on the porch having a moment.  I can dig it.  My nouveau-prom look (it’s nouveau because I’m wearing crazy boots) today is courtesy of Syndicate Sunday – a once a month 69 Linden sale wherein you can get some pretty awesome stuff!

Kiss Me

I got my fancy dress today courtesy of Oubliette (one of my fave stores) – it cost me 69 Lindens and came in a fatpack of hues.  I fee like I can dress it up or down depending on my mood – after all, the shoes make the outfit!  And speaking of shoes, these insanely awesome boots are from Sn@tch and also cost me 69 Lindens.  There are several different flowery and animal print styles to choose from on the included HUD, so you can go completely wild with your choices. The boots are sized for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Physique and both Tonic bodies.   Syndicate Sunday runs until May 5th, so rush to the stores to take advantage of these deals!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Pysique
  • Maitreya

Bento Hair!

I found another great deal on Marketplace – this time courtesy of Vallani.  They’ve got this really pretty hair on offer for just 1L!  Best of all, it’s bento hair, which means it gently sways in the wind of your movement.  Awesome.  There are loads of natural shades in the pack to choose from, so you’ll be covered no matter what your preferred look is!  Go get it!

Now you too can go and recreate your “After Prom on the Porch” scene!

Dabbing Sunscreen

Dabbing Sunscreen

Hey Fab Free!  I may or may not have gotten a bit of a sunburn yesterday (aka I did).  I wasn’t even doing anything too crazy, just walking around… There’s another SL perk – no sunburns!

Suit Up

Zomg, how cute is this bathing suit?  Yes, that’s a dabbing unicorn.  Is dabbing still happening?  I’m not entirely certain if that craze has passed, but this little unicorn is making it happen.  This bathing suit is a 1L find from Moshi on Marketplace.  You can wear the top and bottoms separately, so you could totally wear this top with a jean skirt and make it yours.  The bottoms come in 3 different colours:  Pink, Orange and White and are a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   I like it!

Don’t forget that sunscreen, y’all!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

What kind of every day magic do you love?

Be The Light

Be The Light
