Laundry Day

 

Laundry Day
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I call this look “when it’s laundry day but you still wanna look cute for Easter.” hahaha Really, I had a lot of fun with a few more finds from The Rotten Egg Hunt, and this fun “Need Laundry” pose by DANU. I picked up this cute top at The Rotten Egg Hunt, it’s by Secret Oktober. Also while at The Rotten Egg Hunt I picked up a really pretty crescent shaped bindi by Valika Rituals. Keep reading for all the details about these fabulous finds. Also, Aline’s sweet sleepy self has been doing some Rotten Egg Hunting, to see what she found check out her post “Sleepy Times.”

The Pose – This fun laundry pose is a Marketplace find by DANU. It’s just 37 linden and it includes a pose-ball pose, and the laundry basket prop. The basket comes white, but I tinted it darker. I also needed to shrink it down to fit between Pru’s hand and hip, which was easy to in edit mode since the basket does not have any scripts. Have fun, and do your laundry!

The Top – Secret Oktober has 5 versions of this cropped bunny sweater at The Rotten Egg Hunt. I was excited to find the number 5 egg and get the bunny with the spider. It felt a little bit like Easter and a little bit like Halloween, which suits my exceedingly eclectic tastes. lol These tops are just 10 linden each, and come in a Maitreya fit only.

The Bindi – This pretty little bindi by Velika Rituals is one of the dollarbie Rotten Egg Hunt prizes. At just 1 linden, it is way too nice to pass up. I’m loving accessories that are free of scripts like this one, sometimes simple really is best. You can resize, and even change the color of this bindi by using the edit menu. Just don’t forget to make a copy first!

A Hunting We Will Go

A Hunting We Will Go

When Easter falls early in the year, I get a bit let down to tell you the truth.  In my part of the world, it’s still all grey and slushy and I’m surrounded by general grossness.  When you think of Easter, you think of blossoms dripping from the trees, and being able to go out without a toque and mukluks (ha!).  However, I’m in chillsville.  In SL, however, I’ve come over all rosy and have found a cute little sweater and knickers combo that is great for lounging about while waiting for the Easter bunny to visit!

Hunting Basket Goodies

In my travels through the grid, I came across a mini hunt that’s taking place at Tatiko.  There are five eggs to find, each one containing a pretty little gift.  Search high and low, and pay 1L for each item.  I decided to pair this bunny adorned sweater with the lingerie I also hunted down for 1L at Tatiko.  What will you find there?

Sizes

  • Curvy (Top Only)
  • Fine (Top Only)
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (Knickers Only)

Oeuf Course!

Pardon my horrible French pun above (I can’t stop myself sometimes), but I have found lovely little eggy earrings to go with my Easter look.  I picked these up the other day while at Sorbet, and I must say they please me no end.  You can pick them up too by joining the group for 25L.  There are several other gifts available, including the dress I posted the other day.

Hoppy Easter, my friends!

The Cart Sale – The 100

The 100
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I just cannot get enough of these 10 linden finds at The Cart Sale still taking place at The Wash. Not only have I been able to update some of my furniture, I’m getting some great new wardrobe pieces as well. If you’re unfamiliar with The Cart Sale, all the items available from any participating vendor are just 10 lindens.

The 100

Once again I’ve discovered a new-to-me shop, The 100. I picked out two personal favorites from their cart to share with you. I also really dig the store name, it makes me think of the television series with the same name, which I very much enjoyed. Shown on the left, I adore the soft sweet floral pattern on this nightie. It come in several mesh sizes and is a steal for 10 lindens. The cute cowl neck cropped sweater on the right is also just 10 lindens at The 100 cart. I like the sketchy red hearts and arrows,  it’s festive without being too frilly. Both items come in a few other colors as well.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

To All a Good Night

To All A Good Night
Happy Holidays Fab Free! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and joy. For today’s post I did a little “shopping” for myself. Actually, I did some gacha-ing. I sat at my home and Pocket Gacha’d until my little heart was content. I have to admit, it was content rather sooner than I would have liked. My linden wallet is quite thin! lol Still, I had lots of fun using the FREE Pocket Gacha HUD without having to go anywhere. I had such fun in fact that I wanted to share my experience with you, and show off the equally fun items I gatcha’d.

e.Marie

I adore over-the-knee socks. These pretty striped socks are from the e.Marie items within the Pocket Gacha this round. There are tons of fun socks, some holiday themed, some not. I lucked out and got one of the Rare sets. This set included a color change hud with several preset options, and optional twinkle lights. The lights have their own hud as well. Also, this is important, you’ll want to make sure that you’re looking at the e.Marie gacha key for your body. Pru wears Maitreya Lara, so I had to be sure to play the “Lara” key for the e.Marie gachas. If that sounds confusing, I promise it is easy, you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the gacha keys on the hud. These cute socks by e.Marie are just 50 linden per play.

Sizes Available: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis)

Cubic Cherry

It just so happens that the Cubic Cherry sweaters have the possibility of matching quite nicely with the e.Marie socks. These cute fluffy sweaters are just 75 linden per pay. There are tons of commons and a few cute Rares to be had. These are sized for Maitreya Lara wearers only.  Again I felt lucky when I pulled this cute unicorn common from the Cubic Cherry gacha key inside the Pocket Gacha hud. I love unicorns, and this sweater says “99% Unicorn” across the front.

Size Available: Maitreya Lara Only

99 Percent Unicorn
LOTUS

These deep brown eyes are from the Pocket Gacha by LOTUS. Every once in a while I like to change things up and wear eyes that are different from the ones I usually wear. I love the details in these dark eyes by LOTUS. They are also very similar to the color of my own eye in RL. The mesh eyes come with resize scripts, and there is a Catwa applier for the Catwa mesh eyes. The LOTUS Pocket Gacha is just 60 linden per play and there are 15 pretty earth toned commons, and 2 hauntingly pretty Rares.

Essences

I love it when Essences participates in events and things like Pocket Gacha. For this round of Pocket Gacha, Essences has a full set of  Catwa head appliers. There are 10 commons, in the Pale02, Dark01, and Dark02 tones, along with 2 Rares, one Medium02, and the other Pale01. Body Appliers are not included, but can be purchased at the Essences main store. This set of pretty faces is called Lydia, and she’s just 58 linden per play.

P.S. You can also pick up a Pocket Gacha hud at most (if not all) participating stores.

Here are the details, Merry Christmas, and Happy Gacha-ing!!

Waiting for Christmas…

Only in My Socks_001

Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

Shop ‘Till You Drop!

Merry Kittymas_001

It’s Shop ‘Till You Drop Season, so it’s the perfect time to visit an event called … well… Shop ‘Till You Drop! And as I mentioned in my post {HERE} almost every booth has out a free gift that you can buy for 0L, no group required! I picked up my cute Merry Kittymas sweater at the Sweet Thing stall! I just love it! It comes in fits for Maitreya, as well as Belleza (Freya, Isis, and Venus).

Another December Gift

KoKoLoReS puts out a new group gift like clockwork every month, but right now if you hurry it will be absolutely FREE, because there is no join fee as of the time of this posting. I’m not sure how long this will last (the join fee is usually 250L) so hurry and get in on the deal and pick up the pretty free December gift of “Loulou” that I am showing off in the picture above. You’ll get a hud of natural colors to compliment your usual hair color too!

Merry Kittymas_002

While you’re there…

While your at KoKoLoReS, be sure to stop by the counter for some free gifts. There are three (3) gifts, no group required that you can buy for 0L. I picked up these Catwa mascara appliers for my eyelashes. The luxurious look is great for a formal look! Though I love them for every day wear too! They came in two styles… a longer eyelash look and a shorter eyelash look. In the picture above I have on the shorter eyelashes, and am using the eyeliner from the hud that comes with my Catwa head.
