Let the Party Begin!

Coming soon to fab free!

Hey gang!

So as you all know, SL is celebrating its 18th (!!!) Birthday today!  It is almost not a teenager any more!  Our little SL is growing up! (collective “awwwwww!”)

Ok I am just being silly, I traveled the entire 16 sims and not only are my feet killing me (I should *not* have worn those heels!), my head is still spinning on what to show you first!  It’s been difficult to decide, but I wanted to gather up a little collection of items that would pull together nicely and the above is what I came up with!  Of course I have a weakness for the Holo stuff, so that helped me decide!

Because it is a lot, I will keep it simple and straightforward and list it for you here (yes they are all free gifts, with no group needed!):

Free top & skirt (it is two pieces you can wear separate) is by Ersch, it fits:

  • Freya Perky
  • K-Krups
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy

It comes in both yellow and purple versions.  I am wearing purple.

Free shoes and legwarmers are from Pink Cream Pie, they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

They come with a HUD giving you a multitude of color choices and combinations.

The free purse is from Sheba, it fits everyone!  Yay!

The free hair is from Love, this also should fit everyone!

And last but certainly not least, the free halo/crown is from Lassitude & Ennui, and this fits anyone who feels the need to wear a magical, starry crown!

The links below should land you at the booth for each designer I’ve mentioned.  The event runs from June 17 to July 6.  Have fun!!!

Stay Wild, Moon Child

Stay Wild Moon Child

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a… fab free blogger???
Hey gang!
‘Tis just me, your favorite blonde barefoot blogger!  My picture today shows where my brain is most of the time…. off floating in space.  And I do love the moon, adore the moon!  Even though my sun sign is ruled by the sun (I am a Leo, as is our faithful Fab Free Leader, Aline), I do have a weakness for the beauty, romanticism, poetry and magic of sister moon.  If I weren’t deathly afraid of heights, I might want to sit with the man on the moon, watching shooting stars and whispering about the wonders of the universe.  As it stands, I shall stay here on Earth, blogging the hours away.

Fab Free Wants YOU (yes, YOU!!!!)

Speaking of such things as blogging, we are looking for some bloggers to join our team!
Yessireebob! (who is this guy Bob anyway??)  You know you love to find freebies and you just *know* you love to take pics of yourself wearing them and using them cause gosh darnit you just look soooooo freaking cute in those freebies!  You may not know it yet, but you would just have a *blast* sharing those photos and freebies on the fab free blog for the entire world to see!  Never mind the giant bonus points of becoming part of our happy lil fab free fam!
I have to honestly say, since I started here back at the very beginning of the year, I have felt so welcomed by everyone and so part of this family, I can’t think of anyplace I would rather be now.  So it is more than just a blog, it is a little family of friends who got yer back on your blogging journey.
And don’t feel shy!  I am *the* world’s biggest introvert, but on here I get to be who I am without judgment (actually we are *all* introverts on here!  Who knew?!  Right?), so I am talking to *you*, yes YOU, the one reading this and wondering whether you should or not and I say go for it!  You never regret the things you do, you only regret the things you DON’T do!  And I say you have a place here!
Can’t commit to being a full time blogger?  That’s ok, be a contributor!  Dip your toe in the water!  What have you got to lose?  Like Nike says, Just do it!  Click here!

Where was I?

Oh yes the moon.  😉  I’ve got moon themed goodies for you today gang!  First off this moon I am posed on, is a 1L dollarbie at Meander Me, you can find it in the Sooty Wing section of the store (over to the left after you come in) and there is no group required.  I couldn’t resist a moon with poses!
The space around me is called Space Within Moon and it is a 30L find on marketplace, its a hollowed out moon that you can use for any time you want to feel like you are in space, or even living in space as I think it is large enough for a small home.
Now ladies and gents, I believe I have babbled quite enough for one morning.  😉  Happy weekend y’all!

Starlight

Starlight

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I picked up a few group gifts recently that got me thinking about makeup. I love makeup. While I don’t believe makeup is something most people need, I do believe in the absolute fun of wearing it. I think it’s creative, and even artful at times. That said, I do feel pretty, and I think my look for this post is both fun and creative. The group gifts I’ve used to create this look come mostly from Ives Beauty, YOSHI Eyes, and POUT! Keep reading for all the details.

Ives Beauty 

My pretty lip color is part of a generous free group gift lip applier set group gift at Ives Beauty called Ravenous Tint. It comes in a range of nude pinks and purples. The best part, until August 21st the Ives Beauty group is free to join. You know what that means, don’t wait!

Appliers Included: Catwa HD Lips, Genus, Lelutka Evolution

YOSHI Eyes

Purple is one of my very favorite colors. I can remember wishing I had lavender eyes when I was a little girl. So in a way these bright blue/purple hued group gift eyes from YOSHI are a childhood dream come true. The YOSHI store group is free to join. In this free gift you’ll get appliers, a pair of mesh eyes, and BOM eyes.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Omega, Lelutka (BOM & Mesh Eyes also Included) 

POUT! 

Stars have always been attractive to me. So I couldn’t help but want this pretty set of little star face freckles from POUT!, especially considering they are a free group gift. I think they look sweet and give a touch of whimsy to your makeup. These stars come in several colors and are BOM only. The POUT! group is free to join as well.

Galactic Girl

FabFree Post: Galatic Girl

Saving the Stars

Little did you know, I am also a Galactic Girl who is tasked with saving the galaxy from evil. Earlier today I was notified of a large gathering of stars that have the ability to turn dust into chocolate. The orders came in from above and I was sent out to procure them before Astrid was able to get her cyber-hands on them! Astrid comes from a planet where chocolate is their undoing, the race is vulnerable to the sweet delicate substance.
So with my Space Wolf “Barf” we made our way to the rings of Saturn where we had found Astrid using her cyber-portal to beat us to the stars…

…to be continued

Featured in this post is the “Stay at home club” Gifts from HILTED & What’s Lost Spirits
The FREE GIFT from HILTED is the adorable little Space Wolf, which comes in three colors and has both Wear & Decor options! It floats up and down as there is zero gravity for the little dude (or dudette). Such a great addition to any collection of space gear needed to save the universe!!

The amazing Cyborg is another FREE GIFT this time from What’s Lost Spirits and I can honestly tell you when I saw this I knew the image I wanted it to be seen in! Granted yes, this item is described as a wall hang but I thought “wouldn’t this look amazing on the ground?” So being SecondLife I jumped at the idea and ran with it. I’m so thankful I can now have this in my catalog of coolness!

Red White and Blue

Red White and Blue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, that pesky Real Life is relentless at times. Needless to say I am happy to be back, I missed you guys! If you live in the States like I do, our most patriotic holiday, Independence Day, is nearly here.  Personally I just want to celebrate with friends and and family and take advantage of the opportunity for some summer fireworks. It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some red, white, and blue gear to show your patriotic spirit. I picked up two free Independence Day inspired gifts to share, I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Bikini Top – I think this free star shaped bikini top from Dirty Princess is a must-have. Not only is it perfectly patriotic, it’s also something I’d wear all summer, no holiday needed. This free Dirty Princess group gift comes in 2 versions, the one with white ties shown, and one with red ties. The Dirty Princess group is free to join. This free gift is sized for Maitreya only. To get yours head over to Dirty Princess, enter the store at the entrance with the horses, the gift is waiting next to the desk.

The Phone – For a little fun ChicChica put out this cute patriotic cell phone out as a free for everyone gift. There’s no group needed, just purchase the gift for zero linden. This free USA themed phone has a hold pose. You’ll find this freebie waiting on the ChicChica desk.

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Don’t Try to Box Me In

Don't Try to Box Me In 1

I am making away with some fabulous finds at the Cart Sale… and this sexy little black dress just happened to catch my eye this morning and find its way into my wardrobe. I really think it is a must have simply for its versatility. The design is clean but classic and embellished enough that with the right accessories it can be casual, elegant, Gothic (as I have done) steam punk, fantasy, or just about anything your heart desires. And for just 10L at the Stars Fashion Cart at the Cart Wash Sale, it was a real gem to take home. What’s more, it comes in all the standard sizes, plus fitmesh as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza fits.

Don't Try to Box Me In 2

I wanted to stop by to see a particular sim (the location is listed at the bottom of this post) and somehow the wintry feel, class ideas of ghosts and lives past, brought out the Gothic poet in me! So when I saw this stunning FREE accessory gift by Pixel Box designs — and how well it went with my little black dress from Stars Fashion — I just fell in love. You don’t even need to join the group, just hop over to Pixel Box and buy the gift for FREE. You’ll get these gorgeous boots, the raven hand bag, and the black rose head band all in one box. Do hurry though! Pixel Box tends to change out their FREE gifts quite frequently!

Mishmash! This Women’s Hunt Stuff is a Blast!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is in Full Swing and with less than two weeks left to hit 150 participating stores, I’ve been hitting the grid like a potato-masher so I could mishmash some fall styles for your wardrobe (and mine!)… and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with these amazing finds!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

My first stop on our Women’s Stuff Hunt tour will be Sweet Temptations where I found the outfit which I used as a “base” for the rest. (It is pictured above.) This sexy sort of safari feeling style called Azahara is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes an amazing set of gold mesh boots which are slink feet compatible (for high feet). The little red shirt was a breeze to find and FREE… and I was off and on my way to hunt again!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [1]

As you can see in the picture above, those boots from the Azahara outfit quickly became a staple in my wardrobe. My next stop, however, was U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs where I picked up this sleek and versatile brown dress. The gift includes system layers as well as an omega applier and has a mesh panel to make the skirt blend for a flawless look. Well worth the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift tag price!

I then dropped by Stars! where I was able to hunt for the great set of Fall Leaves Jewelry you see in the picture above. Another item that I am sure will become a wardrobe staple! Once I found the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt shirt, it too was a FREE Hunt Gift and voila! Another mishmash fall outfit for you!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

Pictured above, you’ll notice that Astrid is still sporting that fabulously sultry chocolate dress from U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs (I told you we’d be mishmashing!) but I added a little flair to it with two other gifts.

If you take time to Hunt at OSITO, their Women’s Stuff Hunt gift is the fabulous Leather Rose Jacket pictured both above and below, which I found to be perfect for mixing and matching with many different styles of outfits. It’s mesh, comes in all the standard sizes, and was another FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift!

If you are a collector of poses and enjoy photography, you’ll also want to take a glance at Pics n Poses before you finish your Hunting. Their Women’s Stuff Hunt Prize is also a FREE gift and is the pose featured above called “Glance” of course!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [4]

As you can see above, I am still donning that jacket from OSITO and the earrings from the Fall Leaves Jewelry Set from Stars!, but this time with another outfit.

If you head over to LOoLOo & Platypus you can pick up this Fall Flowers Set. The top comes in system layers as well as an omega applier (yay!).  The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the outfit includes the mesh boots as well! All this for 1L? How can you go wrong!

I hope you have as much fun mishmashing and hunting as I did!
