Prepping for Halloween

Prepping for Halloween
Are any of your excited for Halloween? It is my favourite holiday, but it’s always more fun on SL in my humble opinion. I got some amazing jewelry that reminded me of Halloween and an amazing dress on the fall Twisted Hunt, as well as a great pose from the Pose Fair event.

Twisted Hunt- Drow

Pru recently showed some of the amazing prizes you can get from the fall Twisted Hunt, and I’m showing off a couple more today.
The Twisted Hunt is always really tricky and fun at the same time. You are looking for the little cubes with prizes in them at each hunt location, but watch out for the decoys! The main hunt ends on September 31st, and endgame is available to play until October 17th (a game/hunt at the end of the grid-wide hunt where you win lots of prizes if you complete the challenging puzzles and quests). Have fun on the hunt! All prizes on the hunt are free.

I am in love with this dress by Ari-Pari. It comes with a colour hud of a variety if colours and it is very versatile. It is their free twisted hunt prize, available until September 31st.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

Some other prizes I absolutely loved from this round of Twisted are several free hunt prizes at Moondance Boutique. There is a whole jewelery set available, so you are looking for several hunt prizes here. Just click the little Twisted hunt easle at the store to get the details about all the prizes hidden here. I am showing off the earrings, necklace and rings and there is also two colour huds available as prizes to change the colours of the jewelery set.

Hopscotch @ the Pose Fair

We have seen quite a lot of posts this month about the Pose Fair, and today I am showing the free gift by HopScotch. This round of Pose Fair ends on September 28th, so get over there quickly.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

My New Bumbly Friend

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! Aline recently posted about the end of the Stay at Home Club event. This event was incredible, and I am so thankful to the organizers of the event and to the participating designers for all of the free gifts we have been given in the last few months. Today I will be showing you one of the amazing new and final gifts from the Stay at Home Club by Astara, and how to get this adorable sweater by Mooh!, all for under ten linden.

The Last Goodies at the Stay at Home Club

I am showing one of the last free gifts from the Stay at Home Club, which is this pet called Bumbly friend by Astara. It’s such a cute pet, and it comes in three versions. One sits on your head, another rests on your shoulder and the third one is holdable. As soon as I saw the ad for this little cutie I knew I had to have it. It’s so cute!

Astara has a bunch of other free Stay at Home club gifts out at the store right now as well. Astara is a wonderful designer, and the gifts there are just incredible. The club is ending on September 25th, so make sure you check out all of the gifts still available on their gifts webpage before that date, as the club and the gifts will no longer be available after the 25th. The types of gifts available range from home decor, men and women’s apparel, skins, shapes, makeup, accessories, and much more! There will be something for everyone, so take advantage of this amazing event while you still can.

Isla

This sweater is from Mooh!, and it is their new teleport hub group gift. Simply join the Teleport hub group for 10 L and the sweater is yours. The sweater come with an extensive colour hud. This sweater is cozy and perfect for the upcoming fall season.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Smile it’s September!

Smile it's September!

Can you believe that September is finally here?! I feel like it’s been the longest summer I’ve ever experienced. Needless to say I am counting the days until it’s officially fall. Although, I kind of do enjoy this bit of time at the end of summer when you can start to mix a bit of autumn attire in with your warm weather wardrobe. I did just that with some finds from Pink Cream Pie and Red’s Little Secrets. Have fun, and happy weekend Fab Free’rs!

Pink Cream Pie

Pink Cream Pie put out this adorable turtle-neck sweater as their September group gift. I’m not sure whether the cute little critters across the chest are foxes or kitties, but just like the shirt says, they definitely make me smile. Pink Cream Pie has a join fee of 314 linden, and quite a few past group gifts still available.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya (Lara, Petite), Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya

Red’s Little Secrets

I love the look of the this skirt from Red’s Little Secrets with the sweater. It’s a free gift for the Stay at Home Club. There’s no need need to join a group for this free gift, just click the vendor and click “deliver.” I do want to point out that it does stick through the sweater in the back a little, but not enough that it bothered me. Even so, this free skirt could go with so many things, it’s well worth the effort to pick it up. Also, Red’s Little Secrets has several Stay at Home gifts, including some male items.

Skirt Sizes Included: MeshBody Legacy, Slink (not specified which), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (not specified which)

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

Read My Mind

Read My Mind

If you could read my mind like the expression on my face would you know what I am thinking?

It was one of those nights out like I hadn’t had in a long while. Summer in the south means even the nights are hot, but not nearly as sweltering as the day. Just about any excuse to get out and take your mind of the heat after the sun has gone down is welcome. Street racing is a popular pass-time, and it brings with it an exciting atmosphere where one can socialize after dark. Afterward there’s always a favorite dive bar where everyone is welcome, even if you don’t drink, and people play pool all night long even though the table hasn’t been level in years. It was fun to get dressed up, and get out of the house for a reason that didn’t include grocery shopping. To see, and be seen.

Eternal Limited

This is one of those outfits that you dress up in for no one else. You wear it for yourself because it looks good, and you feel good in it. From the moment I put this dress on I felt like a sexy goth pinup ghoul, like it was made just for me. Depending on the lighting this sexy dress from Eternal Limited has the look of satin, latex, or leather. The purple flames on the skirt remind me of the custom paint jobs you see on vintage hot rods, and for me that is just icing on an already delicious cake. Because of the hip-high slits on either side of the dress I felt more comfortable wearing it like a long top with cute black skinny pants. So now that I’ve sold at least some of you this hot little dress, I’ll tell you the price. Free. Yes, free. It is one of several free group gifts at Eternal Limited and the group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, EBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Legacy (Original, Perky)

This is Wrong

Though the name of the store is This is Wrong, their new Stay at Home Club gift tattoo is so very right. It is a unisex upper body tattoo and it’s completely free. You do not need to join a group to get it. As with most of the Stay at Home Club gifts you just pay the vendor zero linden. This free tattoo gift at This is Wrong is waiting just inside the store and to the right along with their previous Stay at Home Club gift which was originally shown here.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Legacy, BOM/Classic Tattoo Layer

Cute N’ Nerdy

Cute N' Nerdy

Bibliophile –
noun
A person who collects or has a great love of books.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I was one of those kids that spent way too much time afraid of being called a nerd. I’d hide my love of books, fantasy, and anything that might label me as geeky, nerdy, or dorky. The funny thing is, all that hiding never gained me any popularity either. Now that I’ve fully embraced my nerdiness it’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself! Alongside my nerdy adoration of books I love fashion and can get especially geeky about a great bargain.

TRS Designs

For this look I picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift dress at TRS Designs. I have to say this dress is even cuter on than it is in photos. I really wish I’d picked this one up sooner. It has the loose fit of a t-shirt dress, with the added details of leather-like straps that come together in a Y shape in the back. I’m also loving the wine red and slate grey tie-dye. To get yours simply head over to TRS Designs and purchase the dress for zero linden from the Stay at Home Club vendor.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Frey, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Standard Mesh + Alpha (xxs – L)

DAPPA

I also don’t think it’s a secret that I love tattoos. DAPPA has been a recent favorite tattoo shop of mine. This heavily detailed upper body tattoo is the newest group gift at DAPPA and I’m geeking out about how great it looks. It’s a unisex tattoo with several appliers and BOM layers each with the choice of a fresh or faded look. The DAPPA group is free to join, and there are several male/female/unisex free group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Signature, BOM Layers

DAPPA - Akuma Tattoo. FREE GIFT!

BND

Last, but not at all least, no cute nerd girl look would be complete without glasses. I love these round specs by BND. They are just 5 linden on the Marketplace. With the glasses you get a texture change hud with options for the frames and lenses. There’s also a backup pair of glasses just in case you need them. Also, they can be manually resized which I really like.

I hope you enjoy these freebies and cheapies, happy shopping Fab Free, and always let your true self shine!

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)

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.
