Stay Wild, Child

Stay Wild, Child

A little madness now and then is cherished by the wisest men.  And women too, obviously.  On days when I feel bored and uninspired, the best way to kick start my motivation is to throw some crazy clothes on.  Does that work for you?

Queenz Everywhere

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  I love their urban and curve-hugging styles that always make me feel excited to get moving.  Their latest is this super cool top, shorts and panties set that come in a bunch of exciting hues.  I love the fact that the shorts are see-through, because it just adds a hint of sexiness to what would have traditionally been a utilitarian outfit.  You can get this outfit (and a pile of other group gifts) by joining the Queenz group for FREE!  You heard me boo!

Sizes

  • BBL
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Jessica
  • Katena
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Oh Man…Gula!

There’s a new subscriber gift out over at Mangula!  These chunky platforms will have you stepping in style all summer long.  The Mangula subscriber unit has a one time join fee of 100L, but you gain access to a massive pile of gifts in their main store, making the fee super worth it.  Plus, it doesn’t take up group space!  Win!  These shoes come sized for Belleza, Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink.

Go forth and be weird!

Soak in the Sun

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! It’s hard to believe that it’s already July, and there’s a host of new events, hunts and freebies available. Today I am just taking a breath, hanging out with friends and taking in the warm sunshine. I will be showing you a 1L hairstyle through the Beached Bunny Hunt and some Marketplace freebies from ALB Fashion today, so read below for details!

The Adorable Updo

This amazing updo is the prize from EscalateD on the Beached Bunny Hunt. The prizes on this hunt are only 1 L, and this is a great steal for this gorgeous hairstyle. Included in the hair is a huge style HUD which allows you to wear the hair with different options for the bangs, and adjustments of the hair. You can also change the colour of the bow to several cute patterns, and it includes a natural and unnatural colour hud.

Get Fashionable at ALB

I am in love with this salsa dress, which is currently free (0L) on the Marketplace. It looks really stunning and will show off your curves beautifully!  Finally, you can also get these great flats on the marketplace for free as well, and they have a lovely pattern on them. ALB Fashion makes some beautiful clothes, and these finds are just splendid!

Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis), Signature Alice, MeshBody Legacy

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

On Freedom’s Wings

On Freedom's Wings

 

 

Happy 4rth of July, FabFree! I had to put a hold on my fireworks and flag waving to show off some really special gifts for our Teeglepet Horses. I got to meet Devras, the Valkyrie of Valkyrie Designed and I’m really glad I did. Devras and I have a very similar background in that our real life dads both served in the US Military and we are Military Brats! Devras is celebrating the 4rth and honoring her Dad, with these gorgeous “Proud to be American” wings, hooves, mane and tail appliers.  Doesn’t my boy look amazing!

I don’t know how long these will be the free to join Group Gift so hurry over if you want to add these lovelies to your collection!

Included in the Set

  • Appliers for Wings, Hooves, Mane and Tail.
  • Plus a exclusive double horn ( not shown)
  • Sets also available for the Jinx Centaur and the [M.O.R.] Wings

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Beach season has perched itself firmly in my spirit.  I live not far from a beach in RL, but it’s not the kind of beach that we all dream of – soft sand, crashing waves, and warm waters.  It’s more of a thin ribbon of sand leading you to icy cold depths.  I’m not complaining one bit – it’s a beautiful lake – but I always wished for something traditionally beachy.  I get my traditional beach-bound moments in SL, I guess!

Choices

Seniha have been spoiling group members recently!  Pru showed you a recent group gift HERE which is still available, and now they’re getting us ready for the beach with their newest group gift!  The Ariana bikini comes with lots and lots of texture options in the HUD, which allows you to switch the top and bottom separately for your own look.  There are nautical stripes, tropical flowers, and even solids.  Your mixing and matching will never get tiring!  To get this lovely gift, just join the Seniha group for free, and click on the vendor near the entrance.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

See you at the beach!

Back to Your Roots

Back to Your Roots

Back before I blogged for Fab Free, I was sure I had a very distinct and settled style.  I loved dark, gothy things and I had a special place in my heart for pastel goth.  I mean, I still do!  But when you become a blogger, you have a tendency to forget your personal style for the greater good and in order to “sell the garment, sweetie!”.  But now and then I come across a cute item to blog that brings me back to my fashion roots faster than you can say “dark and brooding”!

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette!  There are four different items up on the boards right now, and right now I’m showing off two.  The peekaboo (very peekaboo…) lace skull dress is so appealing that I knew I had to wear it.  Of course, I added some pasties for modesty – but it is quiiiite see-through.  I also grabbed the underwear there too, which feature a very nice touch of lacing up the sides.  The two items go very nicely together, I think, but they can also be worn separately.  To gain access to these cute and creepy items, just join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!  While you’re at it, you could check the lucky boards across the sim at Petite Mort which are new too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (panties only)
  • XXS – L with an alpha layer (panties only)

Happy Haunting!

Hot in the City

Hot in the City

Summer time in the city calls for cool outfits, and cool attitudes.  With summer heat warnings in effect in my part of the world, all I can do is stare gratefully at my air conditioner.  SL-me is being more adventurous and heading out into the city, ready to cause a ruckus and look cool while she’s at it!

Smug Mug

I’m sending you all over the place today to get some fun group gifts to put together a cute outfit that’s right for turning heads on the hot tarmac.  Your first stop is Mug where their latest group gift is a fun little tube top.  It comes with several different texture options that you can access from the HUD, and as with all Mug offerings the sizing options are accessed through the HUD as well.  To get this cute top (and the other group gifts) just join the Mug group for 250L.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Sking (Katena)
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Sneaky!

Quinnty’s has a new group gift out too, and it’s these colourful sneakers. They  have a wide range of different texture options as well, ranging from 80’s fabulous to patriotic.  To get them, join the Quinnty’s group for 50L and then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There are lots of fun group gifts to be had at this stop, so make sure you pick them all up!  The shoes come sized for Belleza, eBody, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature, Slink and Tonic.

Nailed It!

This month’s group gift from Rosary is something a little different – mesh nails!  They come in three length options from short to extra-long.  I went for the middle length option, but as you can see they’re still pretty long!  They come with an HUD to change the colour and work with Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy and Slink hands!  The Rosary group is currently 350L to join, and you’ll find older group gifts available to pick up here as well.

While you’re at it, if you’re a Maitreya body user you should pick up a redelivery (you can get that through the Maitreya HUD) as the body has recently been updated to version 5.2!

Stay cool Fab Fam!

Inner Flamingo

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am acting out my inner-flamingo here. Basking in the sun, getting my feet wet and posing in this lovey summer oasis… in all seriousness, though, I am just loving how my green, watercolour, leaf-patterned outfit looks against the backdrop of this cool green pool and leaf fans.

Don’t Forget about the Stay at Home Club

With everything going on, between SL17B and all the wonderful pride gifts and events in June and July, I’ve neglected the Stay at Home Club in the last few weeks! There are still so many amazing gifts to get from this amazing event, and as some of us may be still staying at home, I decided to feature one of their new gifts!

Stylish Stacy

This cute shorts and top set is the latest stay at home gift at Freda. The outfit includes a hud which allows you to change the top and shorts separately to different colours and patterns. Freda makes her textures using her real life art. In this case, this is a real  painting that’s been transferred into a texture in SL and applied to a mesh outfit. How cool is that?! I love the watercolour textures in the top and skirt. It’s beautiful!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Legacy
  • Tonic (Curvy & Fine)

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Summer Sun

Summer Sun

Yellow, it’s a vibe for me this summer. I just want to be warm, happy, and someplace sunny! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I know I cannot complain, especially not when I have the awesome Fab Free community to be part of. Truly, I am thankful. For this look I picked up both the top, and the pants for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all the what, where, and how.

Aquara 

I was honestly surprised at how much I like this free top only because until now Aquara is not a brand I was familiar with and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s super cute on, and the textures are really nice. This halter top is a free group gift, and the group is free to join at this time. It comes with a color/texture hud that has 8 choices. It also has a separate hud for tinting the top any color you want. There are a few things I wanted to note about the packaging and the hud. First, the package says “Maitreya” on it, but don’t worry there are more sizes. Second, the color/texture hud when first attached will show you the Aquara Marketplace page. I was confused at first! lol There’s a tab on the side however that when clicked will take you to the color/texture choices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Aurora’s Closet 

These capri style jeans with rainbow pockets are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Aurora’s Closet. I wanted something new and cute to go with my halter top, and these capris fit the bill. These free denim pants come in black and in blue for extra versatility. Overall I was pretty pleased with these. They are a great addition to my closet and you can’t beat the price!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), EBody (Classic, Curvy), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Maple Leaf Forever

The Maple Leaf Forever

Happy Canada Day Fab Fam!  I’m all about the Red, White and Red today, happy to celebrate this awesome land!  As is my tradition, I always throw a bunch of  Canadian stereotypes your way on July 1st, so hold on to your beavertails, because it’s going to be an h-e-double-hockey-stick of a ride, eh!

Sorry!

For our maple-syrup guzzling contest (which of course is tradition on Canada Day), as well as for our moose-wrangling competition, you’ll need the perfect Canadian shirt!  Over at The Annex, they’ve got you covered with a free group gift!  On joining their free group, you gain access to this cute and clearly Canadian top which was made especially for chasing raccoons away from your poutine!  If you’re looking for some American-style celebratory gear, they’ve got a bunch for the 4th as well.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

We the North

This little Canadian headband is courtesy of Sugarplum Boutique!  They’re getting you ready for all the festivities (which of course are socially distanced this year), with excellent Maple Leaves to catch any lumberjack, Mountie or sexy Prime Minister’s attention.  They only cost 10L on Marketplace!  So cool!

Well my friends, I hope that this little foray into Canadian craziness has amused you all!  To all my fellow Canucks out there, Happy Canada Day and may the butter tarts be ever in your favour!
