Wake me up

FabFree Post: Wake me up

Wake me up inside

And after typing out “wake me up inside” all I can think about is “wake me up when September ends” *you are so welcome* because I am super excited for all the pretty fall colors mixed with the end of summer green! Fall has to be my second favorite season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pie, Freshly Baked Cookies, Festivals, Falling Leaves, and so much more puts this season on top just under Spring. The days become shorter, the nights become colder, snuggling under a blanket watching movies, warm fuzzy socks.. all highlights of a typical Bunnie Fall.

Early last week BackBone gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming free group gift, I had to very patiently wait until it was released, and let me tell you, this GLORIOUS Warrior is my new favorite decor item, hands down! The detail on the statue alone made my jaw hit the floor. I know L$500 is a hit but if you think about all the past free group gifts you can snag while there it makes the cost small in comparison. It comes with the ability to turn the water sounds up or down, which is amazing because I love the sound sometimes but when I’m working it could be slightly distracting to me.
Then again that could just be a “me” thing.

Belle Epoque has put out a very inspiring dress for 25LT Sale (sale prices only good for Tuesday 9/15) coming in 8 colors for L$25 each with options for short and long. Both dress styles of the dress are classic and could be used for RP or even a new age shot because we all know vintage looks come back over and over again 🙂 So soon we will all be using standard avatars again ❤ JK!

Fits:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

Sharkle

Sharkle

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Can you believe we are nearing the end of the week already? I feel like my week flew by. Even so, I am ready for the weekend. For this post I’m excited to share two awesome freebies with you. First, this top is part of a  free group gift at Mashumaro. Second, the sparkles in my hair by Beusy are free at Collabor88.

I got a good little giggle over this t-shirt from Mashumaro. It says “I don’t shine, I sharkle” and there’s not a thing I don’t like about that! This cute shirt comes with a matching pair of shorts that I decided not to wear. I’ll add a copy of the vendor photo below so you can see them. They are the kind of thing you’d want to wear to be extra comfy around the house. The Mashumaro group is free to join and there is more than one group gift available.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

~[Mashumaro]~ Jawsome Sharkle Edition Advert

I think these hair sparkles by Beusy are so fun and pretty. They are meant to be worn with the new Beusy hairstyle also at Collabor88, however they are tint-able, and modifiable so you could size them to fit over other styles. These sparkles are free, no need to wear a certain group tag or anything. You’ll find it at the Beusy booth above the two hairstyles.

Forest Nights

Fabfree Post: Forest Nights

The Long Forest Nights in Spring

Trompe L’oeil is at it again! This time they’ve given us this very classic cottage for the BUBBLE! Yes, I mean FREE ^^ This one-room cottage with a deck is perfect for these early spring nights where the moon is so bright you can see without any lights. Paired with the matching Lounge Chairs (on the deck and barely visible *Sorry*) it’s perfect for a glass of wine, nice friends to enjoy on a spring night. The only thing missing is a fire to roast mallows on.

The Lounge Chairs are PG so you can set them out for your friends and family to enjoy without fear. The wicker weave and texture details on the chair cry out for a butt to warm it. So why not pop on over to Trompe L’oeil and snag this set for yourself? I swear they know my habits of changing houses a couple of times a month and I’m loving the vibes of fun beach/forest themes they’re throwing our way lately. You have until Apr 24, 2020 to snag this set and *fingers crossed* we get another set to show off after that!!

A New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

Hello, fabulous readers! If you’re looking for a place to live with a bit of a retro feel, then I’ve got the spot for you! This beautiful, New York studio apartment can be yours for the low, low price of FREE! 😀

But first, a bit about the furnishings.

Fancy Decor offers a new group gift each month, and ALL of the past gifts are still available! The glass console table you see here is the most recent gift. Other gifts pictured here are the chair, lamp, bell ornament, picture frame, and the clasp boxes under the table. Just join the Fancy Decor in-world group, and these – plus many more – gorgeous home furnishings will be yours!

The artwork you see on the walls are free gifts from The Loft Furniture. They’ve been around for a while, but I thought they added the perfect art deco look to this apartment. You can find the gifts HERE, but in the event that you get tp’d back to the landing point, you’ll need to walk to the west side of the store to find them. Alternatively, you could do an area search for items that are 0L. There are 4 art deco posters available as gifts.

Please keep in mind that The Loft is a large store with many items so it may take a while to load all the textures. Sometimes teleporting out and back in helps speed things up.

Ok, now for the skybox details.

Apple Fall has quietly set this cozy New York Apartment skybox as a free gift. But in order to get it for free, you need to follow these directions:

  • When you arrive at the Apple Fall store landing spot, walk straight ahead towards the mainstore to the teleporter.
  • Click the teleporter and select “New York Apartment” from the blue menu.
  • Hop on the teleporter.
  • When you arrive at the demo skybox, walk around the corner and click the big “Buy Me” tag to purchase for 0L.

I don’t know how long the skybox will be available for free, so if you want it, don’t delay!

New York State of Mind

You don’t like brick? That’s ok!

Click on the back wall (the whitish part you see here) to change the textures. There are 3 different versions available, as well as a “blank” version so you can add your own textures.

Size is about 15 x 12 meters. 10 LI.

This is a cute little apartment with a cool view of the New York skyline, made with the quality you’d expect from Apple Fall. 🙂

Enjoy!

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

Stella

By Visiting The Wash Cart Sale, of Course!

That’s right, I finally got myself over to The Wash Cart Sale, and let me just say, “Wow!”

As the other FabFree bloggers have mentioned, there some great 10L deals – and even some amazing 50L deals. And since The Wash is celebrating its 10th Anniversary of Cart Sales, there are free gifts at nearly every cart! 😮

Grand Finale

I was super excited to open the generous cart sale gift from Finale Couture. Not only do you get this super sexy dress, but you also get the matching heels and choker.

The Stella – Grey dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It works for mesh bodies, as well – I’m wearing it on my Maitreya body, but since the dress runs a bit small, I had to wear a size larger than I normally do.

The shoes are sized for Slink high feet. The choker comes with a resizer built in so it fits any size. Just click to access the blue menu.

Fancy My Decor?

Many of the decor items you see here are free group gifts from Fancy Decor. You can pick up the Leaning Art, Birch Candles, Inlaid Box, and Potted Succulent — and a whole lot more! — just by joining the Fancy Decor in-world group for 250L. There are so many gifts out right now that you could furnish an entire room. Plus, a new gift is set out each month!

Dutchie Furniture also has some interesting gifts set out at the landing point. One of them is the little pile of coins that you see here, but there are several others, including an empty box and a bag of trash. All are completely free, and you don’t have to join a group.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 🙂

Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

Photobombed!

Photobomb!

Hello, fabulous readers – I hope you are having a wonderful week!

I set up this photo to show you the adorable Easter hunt gift from Sway’s, but silly Finn jumped out and photobombed the bunnies right as I took the photo. That crazy canine never met a camera she didn’t like, LOL! XD

Hunting for Easter Eggs

The SwayLand Easter Egg Hunt is going on now through April 23rd. If you’ve enjoyed the advent hunts over at SwayLand, you’re going to love this one!

Here’s how to play:

  • Hop on over to SwayLand and touch the sign by the big Easter egg near the landing point.
  • You will receive a folder containing a HUD and information notecard.
  • Wear the HUD and start hunting for Easter eggs (there are TEN). The eggs are hidden all over the region.
  • When you find an egg, touch it, and it will appear on your HUD. If it doesn’t, you are too far away, so go closer and try again.
  • Once you’ve found all 10 eggs, and the white eggs on your HUD are colorful, touch the big Easter egg where you got the HUD to get your exclusive SwayLand Easter gift.

Mr. & Mrs. Bunny Egg are 100% original mesh and come in 4 colors: red, green, blue, and natural (pictured). Touch the egg for a color-change menu.

The SwayLand Easter Egg Hunt is completely free. No group is required.

Good luck, and have fun!! 🙂

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers

Sometimes, we all need a week at home and a little snuggling and “me” time… but really, this entire post was inspired by a chance encounter…

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [1]

So it was Fifty Linden Friday and I landed at Sway’s to pick up their deal of the day when I noticed they had out this gorgeous FREE gift! A rainbow heart couch with single sits and LBGT cuddle sits and it’s only two prims. You don’t need a group and you just pick it up courtesy of their store for FREE! I won’t get into politics, but it hit close to home and is a cause close to my heart, so I snatched up the gift and decided, this would be the “heart” of my post for the week (yes pun intended!)

Later I happened to be at on9 when I noticed they had some fabulous gifties out for visitors. There are several items out, and the group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. I picked up the clutch in mango but there were also several lovely mesh dresses and some accessories as well!

And let’s not forget that the Hair Fair ends today! Don’t miss your last chance to get the great gifts that are just there waiting for you!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [2]

Astrid is sporting this sexy short style from which was a FREE gift from Calico in a rich brown called Quinn and I topped it off with the FREE gift from Tableau Vivant — a sexy flower headband. Both creators were generous with their Hair Fair gifts. Calico’s Quinn is a fatpack of full colors and Tableau Vivant’s flower giftie comes in a fatpack of six sexy colors!

This photo is also a great shot of my jewelry, which you can grab for a sweet steal of a deal for only 50$L a spin at OMG – Oh My Gatcha right now. It comes in either gold or silver and Meva outdid herself in the gorgeous details on this flowery jewelry set. I love that the rings come in a right or left hand choice setting and that the jewelry is easily modifiable for sizing!

If you look close you’ll also notice my Tango nail appliers. These are another great find — this time from the marketplace. That’s right! Alaskametro has done it again! Another great palate of 12 colors for only 10$L. Don’t miss out on this “Tango” applier set!

Love Blooms in Mango Tango Flowers [3]

But were not done yet… you have one more stop before you can relax. Head over to Kaithleen’s to pick up the latest group gift. This sweet mesh green dress comes in all the standard sizes is a FREE group gift right now. The group is FREE to join and I love the off the shoulder style and the lovely detailing at the top.

All in all, it made for a great day at home. I’m feeling the love! And I’m loving my new couch. (And for only two prims only my house is loving it too!) Time for a couch nap!
